Legislature enters final stretch with no budget Also pending are proposals to shore up a lotteryfinanced college scholarship program, pay for capital improvements, raise the minimum wage and overhaul retirement plans for judges. The Legislature hasn’t voted on a new gambling compact to allow the Navajo Nation to operate more casinos. Senate Majority Leader Michael Sanchez, a Belen Democrat, said Saturday he was “concerned but I am not panicked” there’s so much unfinished business with a few days left in the session. If the Legislature and the governor fail to agree on a budget, lawmakers

SANTA FE (AP) — The Legislature is running out of time in its 30-day session as the top issues remain unresolved, including a $6 billion budget to finance public schools and government services starting in July. The session ends on Thursday, but neither the House nor the Senate have approved a budget. Much of the dispute is over how much control Republican Gov. Susana Martinez should have over money for educational programs such as merit pay for teachers, assistance for struggling schools and initiatives to recruit and retain math and science teachers.

But compromise is the key word. It’s got to be compromise, not capitulation,” Sanchez said. The Senate Finance Committee is working to assemble a budget after the House couldn’t finish the task.

governor’s school initiatives.

House Democrats later rebuffed a GOP offer for a possible compromise that would have added $17 million for educational programs under the contr ol of the Martinez administration. Most Democrats and school groups favor distributing state aid to schools through a funding formula that leaves it to local districts to decide how to spend the money.

House GOP Leader Donald Bratton of Hobbs said the odds ar e “no better than 50-50” that a special session can be avoided.

The March of Dimes will hold a free kickoff lunch 12 p.m. Friday, Feb. 28, for those interested in registering for the annual March for Babies. The luncheon will be hosted by Pioneer Bank, 3000 N. Main Street. This year’s march will take place on April 12, starting at Cielo Grande Park on West College Boulevard. The march is a time when hundreds of families and business leaders will join together to help children across New Mexico. According to event organizer Becky Hor ner, last year, more than 120 people

attended the March for Babies and raised more than $38,000 to support the March of Dimes. The March for Babies is the largest annual fundraising event for the March of Dimes and takes place in over 900 communities nationwide. Funds raised by March for Babies in New Mexico help support prenatal wellness programs, research grants, newborn intensive care unit (NICU) family support programs and advocacy ef forts for stronger, healthier babies.

Udall, Heinrich: Misconduct forcing more soldiers out Federal drought aid to be expedited Smoke obscures pecan trees as workers burn leaves and debris, cleaning up the orchard, Thursday.

ALBUQUERQUE (AP) — New Mexico's two U.S. senators say ranchers will soon be able to sign up for drought disaster aid made available through the federal farm law signed last week.

Sens. Tom Udall and Martin Heinrich say the assistance is being expedited. Signups will begin in 60 days.

Across the West, livestock producers have been struggling with several years of drought. In New Mexico, conditions reached unprecedented

levels last year.

The senators say New Mexico's statewide herd size has been reduced by 50 percent as a result of the last few years of drought.

The federal assistance is aimed at helping ranchers who had grazing and livestock losses due to drought. The far m law makes assistance retroactive and renews the disaster aid program for another 10 years.

WASHINGTON (AP) — The number of U.S. soldiers forced out of the Army because of crimes or misconduct has soared in the past several years as the military emerges from a decade of war that put a greater focus on battle competence than on character. Data obtained by The Associated Press shows that the number of officers who left the Army due to misconduct more than tripled in the past three years. The number of enlisted soldiers forced out for drugs, alcohol, crimes and other misconduct shot up from about 5,600 in 2007, as the Iraq war peaked, to more than 11,000 last year. The data reveals stark differences between the military services and underscores the strains that long, repeated deployments to the front lines have had on the Army’s soldiers and their leaders. It also reflects the Army’s rapid growth in the middle part of the decade, and the decisions to relax

standards a bit to bring in and retain tens of thousands of soldiers to fill the ranks as the Pentagon added troops in Iraq and continued the fight in Afghanistan. The Army grew to a peak of about 570,000 soldiers during the height of the wars, and soldiers represented the bulk of the troops on the battlefields compared with the other services. “I wouldn’t say lack of character was tolerated in (war) theater, but the fact of the last 10 or 12 years of repeated deployments, of the high optempo — we might have lost focus on this issue,” Gen. Ray Odierno, the Army’s top officer, told the AP last week. “Sometimes in the past we’ve overlooked character issues because of competence and commitment.” His comments mirror concer ns aired by Army Gen. Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, several times in recent months. The ethical lapses, Dempsey said, can be

When Derek Swickard was a young soldier, his supervising corporal told him to always remember where he was, where he came from and where he was going. “Life isn’t going to hand you things. You have to get after it and go for it,” Swickard said. “It’s just a matter of setting goals. Nobody gives you anything.” After 21 years in the Ar my — pursuing and

achieving every goal he has set for himself — Swickard has returned to Roswell with his own family to begin a new chapter in his life. While attending local schools, he had always thought about entering the U.S. Army and flying helicopters like his father, Jack. Swickard attended Goddard High School his first few years, but had a chance to spend his final high school year at New Mexico Military Institute, where he graduated. “I had always wanted to

attributed in some ways to 10 years at war when the military failed to properly balance character and competence. “It is not the war that has caused this,” Dempsey said. “It is the pace, and our failure to understand that at that pace, we were neglecting the tools that manage us as a profession over time.”

Over the past year, a series of high profile scandals — from sexual assault and damaging leadership to mistreatment of the enemy and unauthorized spending — has dogged the military, leading to broad ethics reviews and new personnel policies.

Those scandals included the demotion of Army Gen. William “Kip” Ward for lavish, unauthorized spending; sexual misconduct charges against Brig. Gen. Jef frey Sinclair; and episodes of gambling and drinking by other general officers.

Calif. water politics complicate Brown’s decisions

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — As California struggles to cope with its historic drought, Gov. Jerry Brown is facing increasing pressure to tackle longstanding problems in the state’s water storage and delivery systems at a time when the politics of the issue have never been more tangled. For Brown, the drought presents both opportunity and risk for a governor facing re-election who also was in office during California’s last major drought in the mid-1970s. It comes as he is pitching a costly and contentious proposal to drill two 35mile-long, freeway-size water tunnels beneath the Northern California delta, a project that will cost at least $25 billion and is

opposed by environmentalists who say it will all but destroy the imperiled estuary and has divided the agricultural community. The governor also faces mounting pressure from the state Legislature to address an $11 billion water bond measure that lawmakers from both parties agree will require a major overhaul before it goes to voters in November. Few things are more politically divisive in California than water. Who gets it, who pays for it, where and how it is captured and transported have proven to be political minefields for Califor nia gover nors for nearly a century. The state’s current crisis has gained national attention through pictures of

reservoirs turned to mudflats, rivers slowed to a trickle and farmers ripping out orchards and fallowing their fields. The two Republicans in the race to contest Brown’s expected re-election campaign are intensifying their criticism and say his administration has not done enough to improve California’s water supply or help the hardest hit communities.

Lawmakers approve GED alternatives

Senate has approved a proposal to provide more certainty to high school students about their graduation requirements. The measure by Democratic Sen. Joseph Cervantes of Las Cruces would prevent graduation requirements from changing for students once they enter the 9th grade. The legislation was prompted by a Public Education Department decision to no longer allow marching band, athletics and some other classes meet a physical education requirement for high school students. That policy won’t be imposed on this year’s graduating class but will apply to freshmen, sophomores and juniors. The legislation cleared the Senate unanimously on Saturday and now goes to the House. The proposal would apply to all graduation requirements, not just physical education. Cervantes said the measure prevents a “rules change in the middle of the game.”

cials are monitoring the presence of airborne radiation at southeastern New Mexico’s nuclear waste repository. The U.S. Department of Energy says personnel are on-site Saturday to assess what officials are calling a “possible radiological event” at the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant. According to the DOE, an air monitor detected radiation on the plant’s underground levels around 11:30 p.m. Friday. Officials say no employees were working underground at the time and workers on the sur face have been sheltered in place as a precaution. They say nobody has been found to be contaminated. WIPP is the nation’s first and only deep geological nuclear waste repository. It takes plutonium-contaminated waste from Los Alamos National Laboratory and other federal nuclear projects.

STATE BRIEFS

SANTA FE (AP) — Lawmakers have given final approval to a measure expanding the tests that can be taken by New Mexicans trying to earn a high school equivalency diploma. The Senate-passed measure cleared its final hurdle in the Legislature on Saturday when it was unanimously approved by the House. The bill heads to Gov. Susana Martinez, who vetoed a similar proposal last year. Under the legislation, New Mexicans could earn a high school equivalent certificate or diploma by taking a test other than one administered by the GED Testing Service, which has updated the exam but will offer it only on computer and at a higher cost. New Mexico of ficials worry that fewer people will be able to take the new GED exam. Test takers pay the costs. Other vendors offer alternative tests.

could not agree on whether to convict a man of murder for his role in the 2012 shooting death of a 50year-old Artesia man. The Carlsbad CurrentArgus reports the jury on Friday convicted Senovio Mendoza of other charges, including breaking and entering, aggravated burglary and evidence tampering.

Gary Mitchell, Mendoza’s attorney, says his client must now prepare for a retrial for first-degree murder.

SANTA FE — The state House passed a bill Friday that gives large businesses a discount on electricity rates, a move that would lead to higher costs for families and small businesses but that supporters say would draw investment to New Mexico. Lawmakers passed the bill in a 47-17 vote, The Santa Fe New Mexican reported.

House Bill 296 would allow utility companies to make back lost costs by increasing rates for households and small businesses. Twenty-nine other states offer similar discounts for larger businesses. Supporters say rate reductions will draw more companies to the state and boost hiring.

“We just want to attract businesses that we think are best for our economy, that hire in state and sell out of state,” said Rep. Antonio “Moe” Maestas, an Albuquerque Democrat sponsoring the bill.

LOTTERY NUMBERS

Prosecutors say Mendoza and two other men posed as law enforcement officers and kicked open the door of Tim Wallace’s home, looking for drugs. They say Wallace was then shot in the head.

Matthew Sloan, who is believed to have pulled the trigger, was convicted of first-degree murder in September.

He was transferred to Fort Bliss and took an opportunity to start reaching his goal, he said. “I figured out that probably my lack of college the reason I wasn’t accepted for that and it was kind of a dream for me,” he said. “When I was transferred to Fort Bliss, I really knuckled down.” He attended El Paso Community College and knocked out “every college class I could do,” in six months, he said. By that time, he had married his wife, Amber, and had two young daughters. His third daughter came along two years later. After he was sent to Fort Polk, La., he applied again for flight training officer candidate school and was accepted. From there to Fort Rucker, Ala., where he spent a year learning to fly rotary wing aircraft. “While I was at Fort Rucker was when 9-11 happened,” he said. “I remember being at my post. I flipped on the TV and was actually in the course. They actually grounded flights for some period of time. The Ar my goes above and beyond and grounded flights even longer.” In 2003, after Swickard was accepted to a fixed-wing flying course. He was sent into the combat zone in Iraq a few weeks after the conflict began, where he spent 15 months providing air security for rescue operations and providing aerial support for ground troops. “It gives you a unique outlook on things. You lear n to appreciate things in life a little more,” Swickard said. “You truly find out what’s important in life and that’s the biggest take away from that, I’ve learned.” When he returned, he was sent back to Fort Bliss, where he finished his bachelor’s degree through Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University. His assignment as a fixed-wing pilot in military intelligence took him away from his family, as he did rotations in South America and Columbia, giving him months at a time to study, he said. He was also able to learn Spanish. Then, his family’s life took a new twist when the Ar my reassigned

A gift of goodies him to South Korea to fly DHC-7 aircraft. While there, he and a friend enrolled in a master’s of business administration program through the University of Phoenix.

His family enjoyed spending time in the country, he said. His middle daughter was able to learn to speak Korean, and as “foodies” they tried to learn some of the Korean-style cooking, he said. “It was wonderful,” he said. “Initially, we were nervous, but the whole family embraced the culture and absolutely loved it.”

Also while there, he and his friend started a business enterprise, ClarusAudio.com, selling speakers online for smartphones and other electronics. Swickard, who remains a shareholder, is optimistic about the venture.

He filed his retirement paperwork in June of 2013 and left Korea. He and his family didn’t have plans, cars or anything to their names when they left. They took a flight into Albuquerque to stay with Swickard’s sister and headed to Roswell after that. He had applied for a few jobs in the area and stayed to interview while his wife drove his oldest daughter to Southern Illinois University, where she entered a competitive radiological sciences program. Swickard was soon hired as the plant manager for Purina Animal Nutrition in Artesia and his family now lives in Roswell.

“The good news story is, take advantage of every opportunity you’re of fered and you’ll do well,” Swickard said. “Have plans, goals and take advantage of opportunities. I feel blessed for the opportunities that I’ve had.” He said he wishes he could find that first supervisor who first encouraged him.

“I wish I could find that gentleman and tell him how much he’s helped me through my life, actually,” Swickard said.

“whenever I can,” so this appears to be the next step toward quasidictatorship. Now if he can finish packing the courts with people who share his go-it-alone worldview his usurpation of power will be complete. Responding to the president’s latest summary declaration on Obamacare, Speaker John Boehner said, “Once again, the president is giving a break to corporations while individuals and families are still stuck under the mandates of his health care law and once again the president is rewriting law on a whim. If the administration doesn’t believe employers can manage the burden of the law, how can struggling families be expected to?” This isn’t about any of that. This is about next November’s election and delaying the pain of Obamacare so that vulnerable Democrats might keep their congressional seats. It is politics at

its most cynical. Republicans must do more than issue strong statements. They should go to court again and challenge the president’s power to evade the law. This president, like all presidents, took an oath (twice, in his case) to “faithfully execute the office of president of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.” Is deciding what part of a law he wishes to obey and unilaterally altering a law passed by Congress and signed by himself a faithful execution of his office? Is he preserving, protecting and defending the Constitution by such behavior? Imagine a Republican president trying to delay the implementation of any law favored by Democrats. The sharp knives would be out for his political head, possibly

including impeachment. A court challenge may be the only hope for controlling this outof-control administration. Under other administrations defying the law has caused serious problems for a president. Richard Nixon told David Frost, “When the president does it, (break the law) that means that it is not illegal.” We know how that turned out. President Obama won’t be impeached — the Senate has a Democratic majority, Republicans will likely be reluctant to impeach America’s first black president — but the GOP should use the courts to at least restrain him. The Founders foresaw the danger when a president behaves like a king. (Readers may e-mail Cal Thomas at tcaeditors@tribune.com.) (c) 2014 T ribune Content Agency, LLC.

Another Bumper Crop of Subsidies

Of all the interventions in the nation’s economy emanating from Washington, perhaps none is quite as economically perverse — and, we might add, morally obtuse — as the farm bill, the most recent of which passed out of the Senate last week and was signed Friday by President Obama. Why do we regard the farm bill with such undiluted contempt? Because it embodies all the worst instincts of crony capitalism: using the public purse to benefit those who are already wealthy and well-connected, shielding business from the vagaries of the market, and artificially raising prices for consumers. Let’s start with the basics: far ming, despite the rhetoric of the agricultural lobby, is not an especially endangered industry. Indeed, research by the Mercatus Center’s Vincent Smith finds that the typical American business is 14 times more likely to fail than a farming business and that average farm households make 53 percent more than average non-farm households. We believe all industries should be subject to competition — but even if we were willing to grant exceptions based on hardship, agriculture wouldn’t be one of them. To be sure, there are aspects of the newest iteration of the law that deserve praise. At long last, it cuts a nearly $5 billion yearly subsidy paid out to farmers regardless of whether they grew anything. And it is estimated to reduce the deficit by about $17 billion over 10 years — but that’s a reduction in “expected spending,” not an actual cut. When weighed against the totality of the bill, the modesty of these “reforms” becomes apparent. The total cost of the legislation comes in at $956 billion. Compared with the 2008 farm bill, that represents a 49 percent spending increase. Moreover, the law will force taxpayers to foot nearly two-thirds of the cost of crop insurance for farmers and continue programs like price supports for sugar, which inflate costs for consumers in order to benefit producers. There’s a reason that thoughtful people on both sides of the aisle abhor farm subsidies. Conservatives understand that subsidies distort the free market, lowering overall social wealth. Liberals understand that their benefits flow disproportionately to major corporations which can avail themselves of high-priced lobbyists. So why did the law pass? Because the farm bill’s benefits are concentrated, and its costs are diffuse. Those who were set to profit from the law had massive incentives to lobby for it. Nonbeneficiaries, who have the costs imperceptibly distributed amongst them, had no such motivation. That’s how special interests win the day. In the face of such concentrated power, everyday Americans have only one recourse available to them: the ballot box. We encourage voters to keep the farm bill in mind when they head to the polls in November. Reprinted from The Orange County Register DEAR DOCTOR K: I see trans fats listed on food labels, and I’ve read that the FDA may ban them. Can you remind me what trans fats are, and why they’re bad for me? DEAR READER: Trans fats are a type of unsaturated fat. Once upon a time, we consumed only small amounts of naturally occurring trans fats in some meat and dairy products. But by the end of the 20th century, trans fats were everywhere. That’s because chemists discovered that they could turn liquid vegetable oil into a solid or semisolid by bubbling hydrogen gas through it (think margarine). When hydrogen is bubbled through liquid oils, they are called “partially hydrogenated” oils, or trans fats.

The privileged people: Politicians help a certain few

Politicians say, “We’re all equal,” and pretend that they represent everyone. But, in fact, they constantly pick winners and losers. America is now like the place described in George Orwell’s book “Animal Farm:” “All animals are equal,” but some are “more equal than others.” “Animal Far m” was about Communism, but today the allegory applies to our bloated democracy, too. During the “fiscal clif f” negotiations that Congress and the media made sound so tough — as if every last penny were pinched — Congress still managed to slip in

Why would chemists want to create trans fats? They don’t spoil or turn rancid as readily as nonhydrogenated fats, and they respond better to repeated heating. Those characteristics made trans fats a workhorse of the food industry. By the late 1990s, nearly all prepared cookies and crackers contained trans fats. Restaurant frying oils were also rich in

At first, doctors and nutrition scientists thought that trans fat in food might be a healthy substitute for saturated fat, which was known to increase blood cholesterol levels and the risk of heart disease. So people hoped that substituting trans fats for saturated fat would reduce the risk of heart disease. For example, my mother stopped using butter and started using stick margarine. That’s what I did, and that’s what I recommended to my patients. I can’t recall any medical colleague of mine challenging the practice of promoting stick margarine over butter. In fact, the only person I knew who disagreed was my very shrewd sister. She stuck with butter. She said she knew you should go light on the

In the 1990s, nutrition scientists — led by my Harvard colleague Dr. Walter Willett — discovered that trans fats were at least as heart-unhealthy as saturated fats. Eating trans fats boosts LDL (bad) cholesterol and lowers protective HDL cholesterol. Trans fats also have unhealthy ef fects on triglycerides. They increase the risk of blood clots and they feed inflammation, which plays a key role in heart disease, stroke and diabetes. And yet, for years the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) labeled trans fats as “generally recognized as safe” (GRAS). That allowed them to be used without

The U.S., which used to pride itself on being more free-market than Europe, is now hardly dif ferent from France, which crippled its economy by subsidizing all sorts of old industries, and even gives money to producers of American films that mention France. Politicians everywhere are always eager to help out people who helped get them elected. In the U.S., labor unions were big supporters of President Barack Obama, and — presto — unions got

testing or approval. In November, the FDA proposed removing trans fats from the GRAS list. That means companies will have to prove that trans fats are safe if they want to continue to put them in their products. The FDA’s proposal, if finalized, should eliminate artificial trans fats from our food supply. Food companies have already found healthier alternatives, so your taste buds are unlikely to even notice the change. But your heart and the rest of your body most certainly will.

One hundred years minus one day A6 Sunday, February 16, 2014

OPINION II

“If you live to be a hundred, I want to be a hundred minus one day, so I never have to live without you.” Words of wisdom spoken by the great philosopher Winnie the Pooh. I have a plaque on my desk here at home that reminds me of this daily. Years ago my wife, Tanya, promised me that she would outlive me. This was a very important promise for me. Because of this I can go through each day knowing that I will never have to live another day without her. I can live my life and do what needs to be done each day, and then I can return home knowing that she will always be there. It was 30 years ago on Valentine’s Day that I dropped to one knee and asked Tanya to be my wife. I was a nervous wreck and literally fumbled the box with the ring in it to the floor while anxiously awaiting her reply. After 29 years of marriage and over a half century on this planet I recognize that what I have been able to accomplish in my life is directly tied to Tanya and the stability of my relationship with her. Knowing that I will never have to be alone helps me better tackle each day. And the world sure looks different when you wake up

Figuratively speaking, one plus one should equal a number greater than two. A couple should celebrate together and grieve together. They should argue from time to time, but conquer each difference because of their commitment to each other. They should laugh together and make good memories.

451 waivers from Obamacare. Congressional staff got a special exception, too. Funny how many of these laws are supposed to be great for all of us but, once passed, look ugly to the privileged class. So they exempt themselves. Even the crusade to save the earth is captur ed by the “special” people. Subsidies for “green energy” were supposed to go to the best ideas. Yet somehow your money went to companies like Solyndra, whose biggest shareholder just happened to be an Obama backer who bundled money for the president. And somehow Al Gore, who had a modest income when he entered politics, r eaped $200 million fr om brilliant investments after he left office. He must just be really smart. On my TV show this week, progressive commentator Ellis Henican says this cr onyism is

“inevitable” and doesn’t really bother him: “If we want roads and bridges and prisons and a military and a safety net, someone somewhere is going to benefit fr om that. But you can’t use that as an excuse to not do important things for our society.” I say it’s one more reason to keep government small. Politicians doling out favors quietly shift where society’s resources flow, who gets employed, what ideas are pursued. It distorts the economy and the culture — and it turns us into a nation of favor-seekers instead of creators and producers. What about all the new businesses that would have gotten investment money but didn’t have Gore on their boards? What new ideas might have thrived if old industries weren’t coddled? We don’t know. We will never know the greatness of what might have existed had the state not sucked the oxy-

Leave the Babies Alone

Dear Editor, I recently lost a grandson and he is now resting at Southpark Cemetery. I was placing some artificial flowers at his grave, which remains unmarked. I also made a temporary marker for him. As I was putting up a very nice trellis as a border, the city workers came over and advised me that they were cleaning up the blocks and certain things would be

tions of each other, but should not take their spouse for granted. A powerful poem that helps me keep my relationship with Tanya in perspective is a writing by Norma Burnett titled “If Tomorrow Never Comes.” It is good advice on how to view today so that there are no regrets tomorrow. “If I knew it would be the last time that I’d see you fall asleep, I would tuck you in more tightly and pray the Lord, your soul to keep. “If I knew it would be the last time that I see you walk out the door, I would give you a hug and kiss and call you back for one more. “If I knew it would be the last time I’d hear your voice lifted up in praise, I would video tape each action and word, so I could play them back day after day. “If I knew it would be the last time I could spare an extra minute or two to stop and say ‘I love you,’ instead of assuming you know I do. “If I knew it would be the last time I would be there to share your day, I’d be sure it was your best, before it slipped away. “For surely there’s always tomorrow to make up for an over-

sight, and we always get a second chance to make everything right. “There will always be another day to say ‘I love you.’ And certainly there’s another chance to ask ‘Anything I can do?’ “But just in case I might be wrong, and today is all I get, I’d like to say how much I love you and I hope we never forget. “Tomorrow is not promised to anyone, young or old alike. And today may be the last chance you get to hold your loved one tight. “So if you’re waiting for tomorrow, why not do it today? For if tomorrow never comes, you’ll surely regret the day that you didn’t take that extra time for a smile, a hug, or a kiss and you were too busy to grant someone, what turned out to be their one last wish. “So hold your loved ones close today, whisper in their ear. Tell them how much you love them and that you’ll always hold them dear. “Take time to say ‘I’m sorry,’ ‘please forgive me,’ ‘thank you’ or ‘it’s okay.’ And if tomorrow never comes, you’ll have no regrets about today.” My challenge to you on this Valentine’s Day weekend is to have a happy marriage. It is one

of the toughest things any of us can do, but it is well worth the effort. I know, it takes two. But are you doing what you can to make it work or are you so focused on the flaws of your spouse that you don’t see your own. Are you modeling for your spouse the way you want them to be or are you setting a bad example in your words and actions? Give it your best and find ways to grow together with your spouse, not apart. Do it for the sake of your marriage. Do it for the sake of your children. You never know when tomorrow won’t come. Enjoy one another just in case tomorrow never comes. Enjoy one another and live to be one hundred minus one day so you never have to live a day without your best friend. Just a thought...

STEVE WOLFE ROSWELL SAFE COALITION

There are some interesting events coming up in our fair city and this little column gives me a good opportunity to make the Roswell public aware. Chronologically speaking, let me begin with the Neighborhood Watchhosted meeting next Friday evening at the Boys & Girls Club. Very shortly after he was sworn in, Roswell Police Chief Phillip Smith told us that he wanted to be involved in a series of Neighborhood Watch meetings around town, where he would have the opportunity as the leader of the Roswell Law Enforcement community to meet the public, receive some input, and lead a good Q and A session. He is anxious to continue to build critical relationships with-

in the city which can make it a safer place. Back in November, we hosted a similar event at the Little Theatre of Roswell High School. The chief spoke and answered various questions for quite a while and it was extremely informative. That event was especially organized by City Councilors Jason Perry and Barry Foster. While it was a successful event, we do wish that there had been more participation by the citi-

zens. Therefore, I want to reinforce the idea that this meeting is intended for all of Roswell. Tell your neighbors. Tell your friends. “Meet the Chief” at the Roswell Boys & Girls Club at 6:30 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 21, 2014. We expect to provide some light refreshment. That’s Friday. And then, the next day, on Saturday February 22, the Baby Boomers’ Expo will take place from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Roswell Convention and Civic Center, 912 North Main. What a great event this has proved to be for the past five years! Frontier Medical, with Barbara Gomez and Plan-It Productions at the helm, has put together a valuable, informative, and extremely entertaining event for those of us who claim to be Baby Boomers. While it is centered around the needs of Boomers, medical and otherwise,

the Expo is just great fun! There are also tremendous opportunities to win stuff, up to the Grand Prize Jackpot, which includes tickets to Las Vegas and several other neat things. Tickets for the grand prize are only $10, and the proceeds will benefit the Red Shield homeless initiative. Many of the participants will be costumed in wonderful outfits. (I personally will be wearing a tie-dye shirt and Peace Symbol! Just my style, don’t you think?) My real point, however, is that the Roswell SAFE Coalition has arranged for one of our “forums” to be included as one of the information sessions which are always an important part of the Baby Boomer event. Sabrina Morales, the public information liaison at the Roswell Police Department, will be giving a great presentation to educate the public about the “P2C” link

which appears on the Roswell Police Department website (www.Roswellpolice.com) . We have found that the Roswell public wants good, timely information available regarding police activity. The P2C (Police to Citizen) site is a comprehensive and detailed location for this information. While I believe it is a relatively user-friendly link, Sabrina’s session should be very informative for those residents who want to know more in detail about Roswell’s crime situation. The forum is scheduled for about 11:30 a.m. While you’re there, buy a ticket – only $5 per chance – for the 50” Smart TV, which will be given away by the Roswell SAFE Coalition at 4 p.m. in the afternoon on Feb. 22! See me at the Chaves County Crime Stoppers booth and I’ll be glad to sign you up!

After two hours, legislation regarding ENMMC Auxiliary Gila River stalls in Senate committee awards more than

SANTA FE (AP) — New Mexico is no closer to deciding what to do with its share of the Gila River after a measure aimed at addressing the dilemma over whether to tap the free-flowing river or focus on related conservation efforts stalled Thursday night in a Senate committee. New Mexico has rights to some of the Gila and one of its tributaries under a 2004 settlement with Arizona. The deadline for deciding what to do with the water is at the end of the year. If New Mexico doesn’t use the water, it will keep flowing into Arizona and the state will forgo millions of dollars in federal funds available for construction of a diversion project. Sen. Peter Wirth, D-Santa Fe, has pr oposed legislation that would require the Interstate Stream Commission to spend a chunk of the federal dollars available under the agreement to boost water supplies in the region by conserving water, reusing effluent, practicing conservation agriculture and restoring watersheds. Wirth said Thursday this was the last chance for lawmakers — and

their constituents — to have any choice in what’s ultimately decided by the commission. “I think this would be a very different discussion if we had a project on the table that could work from an engineering standpoint and we knew where the dollars were going to come from,” he said. After more than two hours of testimony and debate Thursday night, the committee failed to reach consensus on whether to advance Wirth’s bill. Former commission director Norm Gaume testified that he traveled to the Gila last weekend and visited some of the sites where pipelines would be tunneled to get the water from the river through the Continental Divide and to a series of shallow reservoirs for storage. “This project won’t work,” Gaume said of the diversion proposal, pointing to engineering issues, concerns of sediment, evaporation and infiltration as well as uncertainties about the cost. “My motivation is to try to prevent a horrible mistake — and that would be to spend a lot of money on a diversion that doesn’t

Estevan Lopez, the current director of the commission, acknowledged that the dilemma over the Gila involves two of the most contentious issues in the arid West — water and money — and that no consensus has been reached despite years of trying.

Similar proposals have failed in past legislative sessions. Ther e ar e 26 for mer New Mexico legislators and cabinet secretaries working as lobbyists, Kane said. House Republican Leader Donald Bratton of Hobbs opposed the bill.

Lopez denied claims that the commission was going to destroy the river.

“ We ’ r e t r y i n g t o p l a n f o r o u r future, and we’re trying to do it in a responsible manner,” he said, noting the importance of a potential new water source.

Lopez also acknowledged that the commission needs to address some of the engineering issues raised by Gaume and other critics who attended the hearing.

Environmentalists and sportsmen contend any dams or diversions would harm the area’s wildlife and limit opportunities for recreation. But farmers throughout the region say the Gila would offer a backup source of water as dry conditions persist.

House OKs limit on legislators becoming lobbyists SANTA FE (AP) — The House approved a measure Thursday to prohibit for mer legislators, statewide elected officials and cabinet secretaries from working as paid lobbyists for two years after they leave their government positions. The bill’s supporters said public confidence in government is eroded by the “revolving door” of public of ficials leaving their jobs and making money from the connections they have developed. “To turn around immediately and be here as a registered lobbyist, lobbying for a special interest, I think it sends a wrong signal to the public — the people who elected us,” said Rep.

sand dollars a year to sit up here on behalf of the people, then they might have a right to tell me what I can and can’t do when I leave this esteemed institution,” Bratton said. “But I don’t think they have any right to tell me what I can and can’t do when I volunteer my services and I am not compensated for those services.” Legislators r eceive $159 a day when they ar e in session and at committee meetings to reimburse them for their expenses. At least 31 states have established a moratorium for a certain period of time — a “cooling-of f period” — before a former legislator can lobby, according to the National

Conference of State Legislatures.

New Mexico prohibits state public officials — but not legislators — from lobbying their former governmental agency for one year after leaving their jobs.

The legislation would apply the proposed twoyear lobbying moratorium to government officials, including members of the Public Regulation Commission, who are in office starting in July. Gov. Susana Martinez has banned officials in her administration from lobbying the Legislature or state agencies for two years after leaving their positions.

HOUSE PASSES BAN ON E-CIGARETTE SALES TO MINORS

SANTA FE (AP) — New Mexico would join more than 20 states in banning sales of e-cigarettes to minors under legislation unanimously approved Thursday by the House. The measure would prohibit the sale of e-cigarettes to those under 18, just as minors are restricted from buying cigarettes made of tobacco. The bill goes to the Senate for consideration with a week left in the Legislature’s 30-day session. Gov. Susana Martinez’s administration backs the proposed ban. Battery-powered e-cigarettes heat a liquid solution, usually containing nicotine, to create vapor that users inhale. Supporters contend the proposed ban is needed because e-cigarettes are growing in popularity and children may consider

them a safer alternative to tobacco. Although the nicotine used in the devices is addictive, health officials have said the risks of inhaling nicotine remain unclear.

During brief House debate, Rep. Paul Bandy, an Aztec Republican, displayed two e-cigarettes to his colleagues. Rep. Gail Chasey, an Albuquerque Democrat, said lawmakers needed to approve the legislation this year because there’s “harm being done to children” from the availability of ecigarettes.

But Chasey said the Legislature must address other issues in the future, including whether to require e-cigarettes to carry a label indicating that they contain nicotine.

Dekka Ruth Clem House

Born 9.12.46 in Artesia NM to Vada Ruth Coleman Clem and Howard Dee (Jack) Clem in Artesia, New Mexico. Dekka led the “Leave it to Beaver” life in her younger years attending school and First Baptist Church as she grew an ever enlarging circle of life-long friends. She spent time serving in offices in the Artesia Jr. Story League and the Jr. American Legion. Her musical talents were established through piano lessons and playing the alto sax in the Zia Jr. High Band, the award winning AHS marching band, concert band and the dance band. She also served in several churches as a substitute organist while attending high school. She graduated from Artesia High School with the still close knit class of 1964 making grades just good enough to stay out of trouble and still allow time for a very active social life. After a year of college Dekka met Joseph Roy House who was stationed at Walker Air Force Base in Roswell. They married on May 2, 1965 and then set out on a journey with the United States Air Force to Biloxi, Mississippi, two tours in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, Rantoul, Illinois, two tours in Minot, North Dakota, La Junta, Colorado, Ritzville, Washington, as well as Holloman and Kirtland Air Force Bases in New Mexico. When he was stationed in Vicenza, Italy and Naples, Italy, Dekka packed up her two young children, William Todd House and Susan LeAnn House to follow her husband, where they spent his down time touring Italy, Switzerland, Austria, Capri, Vatican City, and Germany. While in Europe, they were also able to follow in the footsteps of Paul the Apostle. When Joe served his tour in Vietnam, Dekka and her son returned to Artesia to be near her family. After “seeing the world” with Uncle Sam, Dekka and family settled in Roswell where Dekka went to work for attorneys. She then established Dekka House T ranscriptions, which she owned and oper-

In Vietnam’s capital, old town braces for makeover HANOI, Vietnam (AP) — Tourists, hawkers and motorcyclists rub shoulders every morning in the congested alleyways of Hanoi’s low-rise Old Quarter, which seems generations away from the office towers and electronics megastores springing up in other parts of the capital. The quarter’s street grid, laid out in the 15th century, is still dominated by dilapidated shops selling everything from brass gongs to bamboo scaffolding. It is now among Asia’s best-preserved urban hubs of traditional commerce — thanks largely to decades of inattention. The 82-hectare (203-acre) area is downtown crammed with Buddhist temples, pagodas and French colonial shophouses, whose original tiles and peeling yellow paint have become a draw for foreign visitors. But with property values high, this neighborhood could change dramatically in the coming years as similar ones already have in Singapore, Shanghai and many other cities. Authorities want to begin gentrifying the Old Quarter by relocating households 6,200 between this year and 2020. New construction is likely a few years away, but some residents already have been relocated. Some of them are nervous, though not necessarily over lost history. They worry about being exiled to the city’s dusty margins, and of being forced to accept a bad deal from

a Communist government that has generated public discontent across Vietnam by forcing people off their land with compensation far below market rates. Pham Dinh T ranh, a retired jeweler in the Old Quarter, has watched many of the traditional jewelry workshops of Silver Street slowly morph into cafes and souvenir shops. The 82-year -old wouldn’t mind a change of scene: The Silver Street home he shares with his extended family is cramped and the roof leaks. But he said Hanoi officials will need to make a convincing case for relocation. “We’re willing to go, but not if they take this property and resell it for profit,” Tranh said.

ment’s Old Quarter Housing Relocation Project, said the main goal of the planned relocations is to reduce population density while preserving cultural heritage. With about 66,000 people, the quarter has a population density of 823 people per hectare (2.5 acres) — nearly eight times New York City’s.

One Silver Street temple — formerly occupied by long-ter m squatters — has been refurbished and opened to the public, with assistance from architectural consultants from the French city of Toulouse.

During an interview at the temple, Hong said compensation for relocations is paid at market rates determined by the government. City planners have not yet decided what will be constructed once current residents are relo-

cated, she added, but new buildings won’t exceed three stories. She said a few hundred Old Quarter residents have been moved in the last decade from weathered temples and pagodas, and authorities plan to build an apartment complex on Hanoi’s outskirts to house thousands of others. “Most of those who have already been moved say they have a better life now,” Hong said, adding that the government pays up to 81 million dong ($4,000) per square meter at streetfront properties. In Hanoi’s real-estate market, the average transaction price at Old Quarter properties is currently between $12,500 and $15,000 per square meter, according to Nguyen Son, a property agent in Hanoi.

His parents, Fred and Lizzie Boggs had been previously married and had other children. Harry was the first born of that marriage, with four other siblings to follow. He attended school in Sedan, and graduated from high school in Clayton, N.M. He attended Highlands University in Las Vegas, N.M., working four jobs to afford the education. On May 28, 1942 married his college sweetheart, Cyrena Carman in a home ceremony in Dexter, N.M. The marriage lasted 71 years. They had two children, Judy and Fred. They spent most of the summers traveling the southern part of the United States while the children were in school. He lived in Hagerman, N. M. for 61 years, where he was involved in the First Baptist Church, Boy Scouts and was a charter member the Lions Club in Hagerman. He was a Deacon at the church, and taught the Men’s Sunday School class for sixty-one years. Before they moved to Odessa, TX the community gave his wife and him a plaque recognizing their years of service in Hagerman. As the Boy Scout Master, he went through the ranks with his troop and achieved the rank of Eagle Scout. He earned other awards in Scouting—The Order of the Arrow, given to Scouters who best exemplify the Scout Oath and Law in their daily lives, the Scout Master’s Key—given to adult leaders who completed specific training and performance goals over a five-year period of service, the Wood Badge—given to recognize significant achievement in leadership and direct service to young people and the Silver Beaver award—an award given to those who implement the Scouting program and per for m community service through hard work, self-sacrifice, dedication, and many years of service. It is given to those who do not actively seek it. He and the troop attended the Jamboree in Valley Forge, Pa. and spent two summers as Camp Director at Camp Wehinahpay at Sacramento, N.M. One of his greatest joys in Scouting was having twelve members of his troop become Eagle Scouts. He began teaching in 1941, and taught in the Public School System for forty years, four years Espanola, N.M and the remaining thirty-six in Hager man. Most of the years in Hagerman were as Principal of the High School. Many of his students were outstanding students, and served their communities as teachers, school board members, lawyers, preachers or missionaries, city officials, a state senator, and gave many others an example to follow in their daily lives.

USA forward T.J. Oshie reacts after scoring the winning goal in a shootout against Russia during overtime of their men's ice hockey game at the 2014 Winter Olympics, Saturday.

SOCHI, Russia (AP) — T.J. Oshie brainstormed while he skated to center ice, desperately trying to come up with one last move to end an epic shootout. He had already taken five shots at Sergei Bobrovsky, and the Russians were still even. Yet Oshie was chosen for the U.S. men’s hockey team with just such a situation in mind, and the shootout specialist concocted one last clever goal to silence an arena filled with screaming Russian fans. Oshie scored four times in the shootout and put the winner between Bobrovsky’s legs in the eighth round, leading the United States past Russia 3-2 Saturday in the thrilling revival of a classic Olympic hockey rivalry. “I was just thinking of something else I could do, trying to keep him guessing,” said Oshie, the St. Louis Blues forward. “Had to go back to the same move a couple times, but I

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — Alex Kirk scored 29 points on 11-of-17 shooting and New Mexico led by an unforgiving 24 points at the half in cruising to a 90-72 win over Nevada on Saturday. Cameron Bairstow poured in 24 points and grabbed 11 rebounds for New Mexico (19-5, 10-2), which has won seven of their last eight games and entered the contest one game behind Mountain West Conference leader San Diego State.

Nevada (12-14, 7-6), losers of four straight, fell behind 48-24 at the break and although outscoring the Lobos in the second period, it was not enough to erase the huge halftime deficit as New Mexico cruised to the buzzer making 55 percent (27 of 63) from the floor and 19 of 21 from the penalty line. Cole Huff and Michael Perez scored 18 apiece for the Wolf Pack, who managed a 43 percent shooting effort.

LAS CRUCES (AP) — Renaldo Dixon pumped in 20 points off the bench as New Mexico State roared past Chicago State, 8455 Saturday night.

New Mexico State jumped out to a 51-29 lead at intermission and led by as many as 31 points in the second half after DK Eldridge dunked with 13:01 left. Dixon was 7 of 9 from the field and 5 of 9 from the line while pulling down nine rebounds to lead New Mexico State (20-8, 9-3 WAC).

THIRD ROUND

MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) — South Korea’s Chella Choi set a new course record with a 10-under 62 and took a share of the lead after the third round of the Women’s Australian Open on Saturday. A day after Sweden’s Anna Nordqvist broke the women’s course record with a 64 at the par-72 Victoria Golf Club, Choi eclipsed that mark with two eagles and seven birdies. Choi, who started the day eight shots behind overnight leader Caroline Hedwall of Sweden, was tied for first with 17-yearold Australian amateur Minjee Lee at 13 under 203. “It’s the first time I’ve ever had two eagles in a round,” Choi said. “I don’t know why I have 10 under today, it was just amazing.” Lydia Ko of New Zealand was two shots back in third place after shooting a 69.

McGirt takes lead at Riviera

LOS ANGELES (AP) — A city known for its star power has a PGA Tour event filled with fairy tales off Sunset Boulevard. Start with William McGirt, who ran off eight birdies in 13 holes at Riviera on his way to a 6-under 65 on Saturday to build a two-shot lead in the Northern Trust Open. Going into his fourth full season, McGirt has never won on the PGA Tour. His last victory was on the eGolf Tour in the Carolinas, where the $16,000 winner’s check paid off his credit cards. Asked to name the minitours he played, McGirt said he would run out of fingers and toes counting them. “When you’re around mini-tours for eight years and go through a bunch of heartaches at Q-school, once you finally get here, you really have to appreciate it,” he said. He was at 12-under 201, two shots ahead of George McNeill (66) and Charlie Beljan (68). McNeill was working in a pro shop until giving the tour one last shot, and it already has produced two wins, though neither was enough to get into the Masters. Beljan lost in a playoff at Riviera last year. He is best known for being wheeled off the course at Disney on a stretcher because of a panic attack, and winning two days later. And then there’s Jason Allred. He hasn’t played a PGA Tour event since qualifying for the 2010 U.S. Open at Pebble Beach. His wife is due with their third child at the end of the month, so Allred came over to try to Monday qualify. After opening with a 73, he followed with a 64 on Friday and a 67

on Saturday and now is just three shots behind. A victory would give him a two-year exemption, trips to the Masters and PGA Championship, Kapalua and Bay Hill and the Memorial and Firestone, even Shanghai. He got choked up talking about support from his wife and the treat to be able to have a week like this. “Making the putt on 18 is probably the most excitement I felt from the crowd ever in my career,” said Allred, who holed a 10-footer on the final hole. “I can’t tell you how much it means to me to be able to be at a place in my life. I just have so much to be thankful for with my amazing family. It just feels great to be out here and soak it up.” One of them could emerge a big winner Sunday, though there are plenty of stars right behind them. The leaderboard at times was more crowded than the 405, which has been reduced to two lanes this weekend because of construction, causing traffic that is bad even by LA standards. When the third round ended, 15 players were within five shots of the lead. That’s not much at Riviera, on Sunday, chasing someone who has never had a 54hole lead on the PGA Tour. The group at 8-under 205 featured Jordan Spieth (67), Dustin Johnson (69) and Jimmy Walker (67), who is going for his fourth win of the season after winning last week in the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-am. Also in that group were a pair of Masters champions, Bubba Watson (64) and Charl Schwartzel (68). Behind them were a pair of former champions at Riviera, Bill Haas and Aaron Baddeley. “I’ve just got to go play my game tomorrow and hope that it’s good enough,” McGirt said. McGirt held up nicely the last time he had a chance like this. He was in the last group at the 2010 Canadian Open, one shot out of the lead, and stayed near the lead all round until making bogey on the tough 18th hole at Hamilton Golf and Country Club to finish one shot behind Scott Piercy. The 34-year-old from South Carolina has much at stake Sunday. McGirt has played in only one major, the PGA Championship two years ago. He hasn’t won a proper event in nearly seven years, and even his one claimto-fame comes with a caveat. McGirt made two aces in one round at a charity event, the second one worth a car. Turns out the event failed to pay for insurance in case a professional made the hole-in-one. McGirt received a weedwacker shaped like a golf club, instead. First place at the Northern Trust Open is worth $1,206,000, which is $22,000 short of his best season on tour. McGirt is among four players from the top 12 who have never won on tour. The others are Brian Harman, who had a 68 and was three shots behind, Cameron Tringale, who had a 67 and was in the group four shots behind, and Allred.

and Wildcats turned the tourney into their own private dual. Unfortunately for the Goddard, it could only muster one district champ compared to eight for Deming. Freshman Andres Villa took the lone title for the Rockets as he recorded two pins to win his second district title. The second pin was over Junior Alavardo of Roswell High as Villa heads to state with a 41-5 record and very high expectations. The Rockets had eight district runner -ups. Raymond Anaya lost a close 4-2 decision to defending district champ David Padron, of Deming, to fall to 374. Most of the matches ended up not being close.

was canceled due to fluctuating winds, Stoch jumped 139 meters and totaled 143.4 points to give him a three-point lead over Kasai, a margin the Japanese veteran whittled down to 1.3 points after the final round. Kasai, whose first was at Olympics Albertville, France in 1992, was trying to become the oldest gold medal winner at any Winter Games. Gregor Schierenzauer of Austria, who won bronze on both the normal and large hills four years ago, finished seventh. Amman, the defending champion from 2010 — he also won the normal hill that year in Vancouver — had a chance to win a record fifth Olympic gold medal. But the 32-year -old Swiss jumper, who has said he will likely retire soon, never looked the part in training or on Saturday and finished 23rd. “It’s hard preparing for three years ... I have to take it easy for the rest of the season,” Ammann said. “It’s not the greatest feeling right now.” Thomas Morgenstern of Austria, who had a bad crash in early January and was touch-and-

was glad it ended when it did. I was running out of moves there.” Inter national rules allow the same player to take multiple shots after the first three rounds of a shootout, and U.S. coach Dan Bylsma leaned on Oshie’s array of slick shots and change-of-pace approaches to the net. Oshie scored on the Americans’ first shot before taking the last five in a row, going 4 for 6 against Bobrovsky and disappointing a Bolshoy Ice Dome crowd including Russian President Vladimir Putin. “I aged a couple of years in that shootout,” Bylsma said. “We had other guys that are capable, but T.J. was the guy who was going well. It seemed like he was going to score every time he went.” Oshie’s final shot was a beauty: He threaded a forehand right through Bobrovsky’s pads, the puck punching the back of the Russian net emphatically enough to pop the water bottle on top into the air. “At some point, you think, ‘Does he have any more moves left?”’ U.S. captain Zach Parise said. “But he did a good job. ... That’s hard to do, to get

defending district champ Angel Villa, of Deming ,in the finals. Licon is 26-9 on the year. Chandler Lessard won an exciting semifinal match over Roswell’s Gabriel Luiz 9-6. Again, Lessard saw an early lead go for naught in the finals as he was pinned by Deming’s Eugene Rosenbauer. Lessard has been in the district finals for four straight years and, despite a 309 record, will probably be unseeded for the state tournament. Chris Archibeque lost to state champion Mike Hernandez, of Deming, in the finals 18-2, but had already punched his ticket to state with a nail-biting 8-7 win over Roswell’s Isaiah Fisher in the semis. Top-seeded Marcus T rujilo and Jonathan Anaya both fell to the second seeded wrestlers in the finals. Trujillo lost to a Deming wrestler that he had beaten three times earlier and Anaya fell to Sant Teresa’s Jacob Wil-

Fairall was 35th, Alexander 48th and Johnson was disqualified — along with Canadian Matthew Rowley — for suit violations. The 7,500-capacity crowd didn’t appear to mind waiting while the wind ribbon zipped sideways in alternate directions for a while, forcing the first round to start 15 minutes late. Men with Viking helmets, kids dressed up in bunny costumes and one optimistic local wearing a hat with three podiums — all flying Russian flags — added to the atmosphere.

The U.S. men are only interested in the one that all but wrapped up an automatic berth in the quarterfinals next week. “I think you’re going to see T.J. Oshie become a household name after that display he put on,” said David Backes, Oshie’s teammate in St. Louis. “The kids will be out on the pond probably in Minnesota right now, throwing a 5-hole on the goalie three or four times in a row.” Cam Fowler and Joe Pavelski scored in regulation for the Americans in the marquee game of the preliminary round. Jonathan Quick made 29 saves and stopped five attempts in the shootout as the U.S. improved to 2-0. Captain Pavel Datsyuk scored two goals in regulation and another in the shootout for the Russians, who rallied from a third-period deficit in a fast-paced game. Russia also had an apparent goal waved off with 4:40 left because Quick’s net came off its moorings.

son by fall at 195 pounds. Clayton Martel fell to top-seeded Esteban Ozante, of Santa Teresa, 7-2 in the finals at 220 lbs. Martel got the initial takedown, but then gave up seven in a row to fall to 28-10 on the year. Nick Archibeque, Tony Salvarrey, and Eathyn Griffin all took third place for the Rockets and advanced to state. Nick Archibeque recorded two falls on the day. Salvarrey bounced back from a tough 5-3 loss in the semis to take two equally close 3-2 and 8-3 wins to finish in third at 182 lbs. Griffin lost by a single point in the semis but bounced back with back-to-back wins for third at the heavyweight class. Luis Mata took fourth at 113 and also qualified for state. Goddard coach Jaime Martinez was not pleased with his team’s performance. “Just burn the bracket!” he muttered. “We had it…” in refer-

ence to the team’s meltdown in the final round.

The host Coyotes finished in fourth place with 106.5 points. Other than Alarcon’s heroics at 138, the Coyotes also got two others into the finals — Alvarado at 170 and senior Chris Snyder at 182. Alvarado got a big 10-0 win in the semis to set up his final match with Villa. Snyder, the top-seed, gave up a takedown at the buzzer to Santa Teresa’s Ricardo Martinez to fall 11-10. Snyder is now 25-9 heading into the state tournament. The Coyotes saw both Gabriel Luiz (126-pound class) and Eddie Sills (152) finish third. Luiz bounced back from his loss to Lessard to pin Santa Teresa’s Matthew Guerrero and nip Centennial’s Cruz Chavez 42 in the final match. Sills had a complete tourney as he opened with a 10-0 win

The other Coyote wrestlers heading to state are Fisher at 132, Mike Hernandez at 160, and Fermine Portillo at 220. Rocket coach Robert Bolanos was very happy with his squad’s performance. “I’m pretty satisfied with the outcome,” he said. “We have eight guys going (to state) — we don’t have a full roster — and I feel like we would have done better overall in the team scoring had we a full roster. Some of our best guys pulled through today. Arvis Allarcon did a really good job … he was pretty much the center of our group and he pulled through as a captain. We had a couple of guys fall short, you know, with Chris Snyder in the finals, but, the way I see it, we’ll get those guys at state.”

Ohio St. shuts down Illinois, 48-39

CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (AP) — Ohio State trailed by three at halftime, and coach Thad Matta told the Buckeyes he thought they would find a way to win. Turns out, he was right. Aaron Craft scored 14 points and No. 22 Ohio State held Illinois to 28.3 percent shooting on the way to a scrappy 48-39 win on Saturday night. Craft picked up two early fouls and spent two long stretches on the bench. But he was still the Buckeyes’ best option on a tough offensive night for each team. “It was rough — I’m sitting on the bench. It’s tough when you don’t have a say,” Craft said. “My teammates did a great job, controlling the perimeter. Guys just did a great job executing, finding ways to keep it close and that’s what we needed.” LaQuinton Ross added nine points for Ohio State (20-6, 7-6 Big Ten), which trailed 23-20 at halftime. The Buckeyes made 38 percent of their shots. Matta remained confident despite the slow start, delivering a positive message at the break. “We’re down three,” Matta said he told his players. “Trust me, something’s gonna fall for us.” And it did. Ross and Craft each hit a 3-pointer as Ohio State started the second half with a 10-2 run. Tracy Abrams had 13 “The U.S. team is a good team and a good test for us,” Datsyuk said. “We played good, but the result is not good.” The shootout finish was entertaining, but the entire game was international hockey at its most compelling — and the third period was a thriller. Pavelski scored the tiebreaking goal for the Americans on a power play with 10:33 to play, but Datsyuk tied it with 7:16 left during a Russian power play, spurring Putin out of his seat to cheer. After review, the officials waved of f Fedor Tyutin’s apparent goahead goal because the net was loose, incensing the crowd. Russian coach Zinetula Bilyaletdinov and Alex Ovechkin both felt Quick had intentionally dislodged his net earlier in the sequence. “I don’t know what happened there, but definitely was a goal,” Ovechkin said. “Nobody touched the net. Their goalie touched the net and put it out. But the referee has to see it and at least give him two minutes, you know?” Quick claimed he didn’t even realize the net had come unmoored. “You need to catch some breaks to win games,” he said.

points for Illinois (14-12, 310), which has lost 10 of 11. Nnanna Egwu had a careerhigh 14 rebounds but fouled out late. “Obviously our offense was anemic today,” Illinois coach John Groce said. “I thought Ohio State had a lot to do with that. I thought they imposed their will on the defensive end, especially in the second half.” The Buckeyes finished with 10 steals. Shannon Scott had five and Craft had three. “I thought the 10 steals in

that type of game, that’s a large number,” Groce said. Illinois scored just nine points over the first 15:35 minutes of the second half. While each team struggled with its shooting, defense also played a key role. The Illini paid close attention to Ross, who was averaging a team-high 14.6 points. He had just one field goal in the second half and was 3 for 8 from the field for the game. Rayvonte Rice, Illinois’ leading scorer with 16.8 a game coming in, had trouble

Duke holds on to beat Maryland 69-67 B4 Sunday, February 16, 2014

SPORTS

DURHAM, N.C. (AP) — The shot that would have beaten No. 8 Duke hung on the rim, bouncing once, then twice. “It felt like an eternity,” freshman Jabari Parker said. Once it fell harmlessly off the rim, the Blue Devils finally exhaled. Parker scored 23 points and blocked one of Maryland’s two shots in the final 10 seconds of the Blue Devils’ 69-67 victory Saturday night. “That was vintage Cameron, man,” Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski said. “That was one for the ages.” Rodney Hood and Rasheed Sulaimon added 11 points each for the Blue Devils (20-5, 9-3 Atlantic Coast Conference), who won their eighth in nine games and started a run of four games in eight nights by giving the Terrapins a hard-to-swallow loss in their last scheduled visit to Cameron Indoor Stadium. The ACC’s top 3-point shooting team was just 5 of 24 from long range and shot 23 percent in the second half. Duke led by double figures for all of about 15 seconds before scratching its way to the 20-win mark for the 18th straight year. “Sometimes the basketball gods fool around with you when you’re not shooting, and they say, ‘You’ve got to figure out another way to win this thing,”’ Krzyzews-

ki said. “Our effort those last 20 seconds was spectacular.” Jake Layman scored 18 points for Maryland (14-12, 6-7) and Dez Wells — who just about singlehandedly beat the Blue Devils by scoring 30 in last year’s ACC quarterfinals — had all 17 of his points in the second half.

Charles Mitchell finished with 12 for the Terrapins, but missed two hook shots in the final 10 seconds that would have given them the lead. “I don’t know how Charles’ shot didn’t go in,” Maryland coach Mark Turgeon said. “Call the Duke gods.”

Parker gave Duke the lead for good when his authoritative, onehanded dunk over Jonathan Graham made it 68-67 with about 1:15 remaining. Wells missed a jumper over Hood with about 50 seconds left. Duke milked the shot clock before Amile Jefferson missed a jumper

that failed to draw iron, giving the Terrapins the ball. The teams traded timeouts with 18.8 seconds left before Maryland worked the ball inside to Mitchell. He had one hook shot blocked by Parker with about 7 seconds left, and another bounced twice on the rim but would not fall through. “The guys kind of willed their way to the basket,” Turgeon said. “It just didn’t drop.” Said Jefferson: “You just hold your breath.” The rebound made its way to Jefferson, who was fouled with 1.1 seconds left and hit a free throw to end the scoring. Wells couldn’t get off an 80-foot heave before the buzzer, sealing Duke’s 30th straight victory at Cameron. That tied Stephen F. Austin for the longest active home streak in the country. Duke missed 17 of its first 19 shots in the second half before Jefferson banked one in to tie it at 54 with 6 1/2 minutes left. About 2 minutes earlier, Wells capped a 12-1 run with a layup that gave the Terrapins their first lead at 54-52, and it was a onepossession game the rest of the way. The Big Ten-bound Terps got quite an early earful from the Cameron Crazies, who taunted Turgeon with their classic “Sweat, Gary, Sweat” chant that had been mothballed since Gary Williams retired three years ago.

Canada reaches curling semis Sloppy Canada SOCHI, Russia (AP) — The Canadian women have taken the shortest route possible to the Olympic curling semifinals. Seven games. Seven wins. Jennifer Jones’ rink beat Japan and Russia on Saturday to cruise through to the playoffs undefeated. To add even more gloss, they are guaranteed to be the No. 1 seed for finishing at the top of the standings in the round robin, even with two games to spare. “We know we’ll have a chance to be on that podium,” Jones said. “I’m getting goose bumps just talking about.” Jones played down her choice to wear eye makeup with a gold hue this week, but the color seems so apt. She’s had the golden touch with the rocks, playing at 87 percent accuracy and finishing off the chances created by teammates Kaitlyn Lawes, Dawn McEwen and long-time playing partner Jill Officer. Since curling at the Olympics expanded to 10 teams in 2002, no women’s rink has gone through a round-robin stage unbeaten. Jones’ team is on course for just that and with games remaining

against two of the bottom three rinks — the United States and South Korea — the Canadians might never have a better chance. “It’s more than you could ever hope for,” said the 39year -old Jones, a lawyer competing in her first Olympics despite being Canada’s top female curler since 2005. “I feel like we’ve come to the Olympics and we’ve performed really well

on the world’s biggest stage. I’m really proud of that.” Jones waved to the cameras and high-fived her buddies on the ice after Russia conceded the final end for a 5-3 win in the evening session. The Canadians had rallied to beat Japan 8-6 in the morning. Five teams look to be vying for the three spots with Canada in the playoffs.

Sweden, the two-time defending champion, is favored to take one of them after scoring two points in the final end on a measurement to beat the United States 7-6. It just about sums up a miserable week on the ice for the Americans, who are in last place with a 1-6 record. “We just can’t catch a break,” U.S. player Ann Swisshelm said.

SOCHI, Russia (AP) — Brad Jacobs scratched his neck and rubbed his face with his hands in a gesture of sheer relief as he slid across the ice to celebrate with his Canada teammates. The gold-medal favorites in men’s Olympic curling stayed on course for the semifinals on Saturday. But only just. In another thrilling finish at the Ice Cube Curling Center, Canada stole a point in the final end to beat Britain 7-5 and avoid dropping back into trouble in the standings. “Relief,” Jacobs said. “Complete and total relief. We got lucky ... That was the most nervous feeling this week.” China and Sweden earned far more convincing wins to move into a two-way tie for the lead at 6-1 and guarantee at least a tiebreaker for a spot in the playoffs. The Chinese silenced the home crowd early in a 96 victory over Russia to maintain their sparkling form this week and Sweden needed only nine ends to beat Germany 8-4. The joint-leaders are one more victory away from definitely being in the semifinals. Both Britain and Canada are 5-2. Only Norway (3-3), which didn’t play Saturday, realistically can stop the current top four from advancing. The Norwegians play Britain in Sunday’s morning session and could be knocked out of contention with a loss. Players and coaches from rival teams stayed on to watch the riveting end to the Canada-Britain game, highlighting how crucial it was in the context of the tournament.

Florida rallies past Felix, No. 19 Texas top West Virginia Kentucky 69-59 LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) — Scottie Wilbekin scored 23 points, including five critical free throws down the stretch, and No. 3 Florida rallied for a tense 69-59 victory over No. 14 Kentucky on Saturday night in a matchup of the Southeastern Conference’s top teams. The Gators tied a school record with their 17th straight win. It was their first victory at Rupp Arena since 2007. Trailing 45-38 with 11:12 remaining, the veteran Gators (23-2, 12-0) turned to their best players down the stretch of their first victory at Rupp Arena since 2007. Wilbekin went 11 of 12 at the line, including two technical free throws with 8:14 left. Casey Prather scored 24 points for Florida on 8-of-9 shooting. Patric Young added 10 points, including two three-point plays during a 13-3 spurt that put the Gators ahead for good. Andrew Harrison scored 20 points for Kentucky (196, 9-3), which had won 22 consecutive home games. Prather’s three-point play with 38 seconds remaining helped complete Florida’s rare road sweep of Kentucky and Tennessee in the same week. Kentucky outrebounded Florida 31-28 but couldn’t grab an errant shot at the biggest moments, especially on the offensive end. The Gators took advantage for a 12-8 edge in second-chance points but basically controlled the paint, outscoring the Wildcats 34-22. James Young added 19 points for the Wildcats, who shot 48 percent but didn’t score in the final 1:55. Julius Randle had 13 points and 13 rebounds. Florida will host Kentucky in the rematch on March 8, but the victory puts the Gators in firm control of the conference race. It also strengthened their resume for a possible No. 1 seed in next month’s NCAA tournament.

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — West Virginia came to Texas on a roll, surging upward in the Big 12 as perhaps the most dangerous team to play over the second half of the conference season. The Mountaineers ran into a Longhorns team that has been the surprise of the season and just now seems to be hitting its stride on both ends of the court. Javan Felix scored 18 points and No. 19 Texas used another impressive offensive effort to roll to an 88-71 victory Saturday night, a win that kept the Longhorns within a game of Kansas for the Big 12 lead. Five players scored in double figures for Texas (20-5, 9-3), which dominated the Mountaineers with 58 percent shooting and a 41-26 edge in rebounding. Cameron Ridley scored 17 points and was a force on defense with three of Texas’ five blocks, two in the final minute of the first half. “It’s one of the best games we’ve had moving the ball,” said Longhorns guard Demarcus Holland, who had 11 points and a team-high seven assists as point guard Isaiah Taylor played just 25 minutes with foul trouble. Jonathan Holmes, the Longhorns’ leading scorer, scored 11 in his return after missing a game with a knee injury. Eron Harris scored 21 points for West Virginia (15-11, 7-6), which had surged up the league standings by winning four of five. Texas reached 20 wins for the 14th time in 16 seasons under coach Rick Barnes. This time might be the most significant, though, considering the Longhorns’ dramatic turnaround from last season’s 16-18 finish that left Texas out of the NCAA tournament for the first time in 15 years. And by beating West Virginia, they stayed just a game behind conference leader Kansas, with games against Iowa State and the Jayhawks next week. “We’re all playing for each other,” Ridley said. “We’re playing for a Big 12 championship. Everybody on the team has the same goal, which is to win games, not anything selfish.” Texas shot 61 percent in the first half, and Felix and Holmes both had 10 points by halftime.

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — Shabazz Napier scored a career-high 34 points and No. 24 UConn beat No. 20 Memphis 86-81 in overtime Saturday to sweep the season series from the Tigers. Ryan Boatright added 21 points for UConn (20-5, 8-4 American Athletic Conference), including eight in overtime. He also had six assists. Joe Jackson had 24 points to lead the Tigers (19-6, 8-4). Geron Johnson added 15 points and eight rebounds before fouling out and Chris Crawford chipped in with 12. The game was tied at 69 at the end of regulation and UConn opened the extra period on a 7-2 run. But Memphis cut it to 76-74 after a Michael Dixon hit a 3pointer. Napier responded with one

of his five 3-pointers and the Huskies held on. The UConn senior had a shot to win the game in regulation, but his fall-away 3pointer rolled around the rim and out. The Huskies shot just 39 percent from the floor, but made 29 of 36 free throws. Memphis, which shot 55 percent, had just nine foul shots, making six of them. Johnson fouled out on the first possession in overtime. Trailing 69-66 with less than a minute to go in regulation, Napier drove the lane, drawing Johnson’s fourth foul and completing the 3point play to tie the game. DeAndre Daniels then blocked a layup attempt by Shaq Goodwin on the other end. The two teams scrambled for the loose ball, and the referees gave UConn the

ball after reviewing the play on video. It was one of two key blocks for Daniels, who finished with eight points. The other came in overtime with the Huskies up by one point, and led to a 3-pointer on the other end by Boatright. Napier was 10 of 21 shooting for the game and hit 5 of 12 attempts from behind the arc. Memphis led 46-43 early in the second half before Napier decided to take charge of the Huskies offense. He scored 14 of UConn’s next 17 points and his 3-pointer gave UConn a 58-51 lead. The Tigers scratched back. They trailed 66-61 with 6 minutes left, but took a 6766 lead on Jackson’s layup 3 1/2 minutes later and extended it to three points

when Jackson found David Pellom for a dunk. It was a game of big runs in the first half. Memphis jumped out to an early 8-2 lead, getting two quick 3-pointers from Crawford and Johnson. The Tigers led 12-5 before UConn went on an 18-2 run, holding Memphis without a field goal for almost 5 minutes. Napier had eight points during the run, including a pair of 3-pointers. But the Tigers then scored the next 11 points to take a 25-23 lead. The teams went back-andforth from there, with a dunk from Austin Nichols sending Memphis into halftime trailing 36-35.

KRASNAYA POLYANA, R u ssia ( A P ) — T h e super -G was running so extreme that seven of t h e op en in g eigh t racers slid, tumbled, careened and glided off the course, unable to finish.

Harris’ 16 lead No. 17 Virginia to 63-58 victory

Virginia's Joe Harris (12) drives to the basket while Clemson's Damarcus Harrison (21) and Jaron Blossom defend during the first half of their game, Saturday.

CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) — Virginia coach Tony Bennett was so excited about his team’s first win at Clemson in seven years, he wanted to scream in celebration and pump his fists with his players in the locker room. He didn’t, though. That’s not how the 17th-ranked Cavaliers built their longest win Atlantic Coast Conference win streak in 32 years and isn’t how Bennett believes they’ll go forward. Joe Harris had 16 points, including a critical 3-pointer with about three minutes left, and Virginia won its ninth straight ACC game for the first time since Ralph Sampson dominated the middle there in 1981-82. It also snapped a four -game losing streak at Clemson, enough reason for some postgame hoopla. “But I said, nah,” Bennett said with a smile. “Just told them, ‘Great win. Hard fought. Made plays down the stretch.”’ That’s keep with Bennett’s steady approach at success. It’s a stepladder, he tells his players, where you must carefully climb. “You put two feet on that step and everything you’ve got,” he said. “That’s the most important one.” The Cavaliers (21-5) moved to 12-1 in ACC play, also for the first time since Sampson’s days. Not that it came easily as Virginia’s No. 1 defense was matched up against a team in Clemson that ranked second nationally in fewest points allowed. The Tigers (15-9, 6-6) trailed 49-48 on Rod Hall’s layup with 3:38 to go. That’s when Harris struck for a 3 and Anthony Gill followed with a three-point play for a 55-50 lead. Clemson closed to 59-58 on K.J. McDaniels’ 3 with 20.7 seconds left, but Malcolm Brogdon made two foul shots as the Cavaliers held on. McDaniels had 24 points before fouling out in the final seconds. He was Clemson’s only player in double figures. “It does get to a point where we’ve got all

step up as a team,” Tigers forward Austin Ajukwa said. “One person can’t do everything. We’ve got to step up and fill our roles.” Virginia’s players have done that Brogdon and Mike Tobey had 14 points each. The 6-foot-10 Tobey was a force underneath, making seven of nine shots. Gill had 12 points for the Cavaliers. Virginia continued a roll the school hadn’t seen since Sampson’s stellar days. The Cavaliers also won a sixth ACC road game, the first time that happened since Sampson’s senior year. The Cavaliers had already clinched their third consecutive winning mark in ACC play, something they last achieved in — you guessed it — during Sampson’s final three seasons. That’s got fans back home excited about what’s accomplished and counting on bigger things ahead. Brogdon said it gets hard to navigate at times with fan recognition and the delight they take in each victory. “I think as long as we can really block that stuff out, we’ll continue to play at a high level,” he said. Virginia came in with the nation’s top defense, allowing just 55.5 points a game this season. But Clemson’s defense is right behind, second nationally at 55.7, and stood strongly against the Cavaliers over the first 20 minutes. The Tigers showed some scoring punch early, making their first six shots and eight of their first 12 to lead 21-14 after DeMarcus Harrison’s 3-pointer with 8:30 left in the half. That’s when Virginia turned things up on both sides of the ball during a 12-0 run to move in front. Harris, who missed two foul shots moments earlier, had a driving layup to start the Cavaliers’ charge, then hit a pair of 3-pointers — the last which put Virginia in front for the first time, 2421.

SOCHI, Russia (AP) — One of the closest races in Olympic speedskating history came down to a final lunge of the skate — then a few more agonizing seconds to figure out who won. Zbigniew Brodka knocked off all the favorites in the 1,500 meters Saturday, capturing Poland’s first gold medal in Olympic speedskating by a mere three-thousandths of a second over Koen Verweij of the Netherlands. Shani Davis? He wasn’t even close. Verweij skated in the final pair and powered toward the line, trying desperately to knock off Brodka’s time in a race that requires both endurance and a sprinter’s speed. At first, Brodka and Verweij were shown with the same time, broken down to hundredths of a second. But the scoring system in speedskating can take times to the thousandths if necessary, and that proved to be the difference. Brodka finished in 1 minute, 45.006 seconds. Verweij settled for silver in 1:45.009.

It was the closest 1,500 since a dead heat in 1960, but that was when times only were broken down to tenths of a second. “I said to myself, ‘These are the Olympics and I have to push right up to the line,”’ the winner said. “Every thousands of a second will be counted.” Brodka, who had skated in the 17th of 20 pairs, watched anxiously from the infield as the times were calculated. He thrust his arms in the air when he saw the “1” stay beside his name — the first major victory of his career. When the “1” next to Verweij’s name switched to a “2,” he appeared to scream an expletive and shook his head in disbelief, his long blond hair flowing behind him as he glided around the track. Even during the flower ceremony, he found it hard to muster a smile, despite giving the Dutch their record-tying 13th medal of these games. The Netherlands has five more events to blow by the mark set by East Germany’s

Sweden wins women’s Olympic cross-country relay KRASNAYA POLYANA, Russia (AP) — When Charlotte Kalla started her anchor leg of the women’s cross-country relay, the two leaders were 25 seconds ahead and four -time Olympic champion Marit Bjoergen was chasing close behind. In other words, she was skiing for bronze. But for Kalla, bronze wasn’t good enough. The Swede erased a massive deficit on the final leg and then won a three-way sprint Saturday to give her country its first gold medal of the Sochi Olympics. “I just wanted to go for gold,” Kalla said. “I knew that if I fight really hard it was possible to cross the finish line first.” It was Sweden’s first victory in the women’s 4x5-kilometer relay since 1960, and came on day when heavy favorite Norway only finished fifth. Kalla was 25.7 seconds behind Finland’s Krista Lahteenmaki and Germany’s Denise Herrmann after the final exchange but gradually erased the deficit and caught up to the two leaders going into the stadium. On the final straight, the Swede overtook both and beat Lahteenmaki by 0.5 seconds. Herrmann and Germany settled for bronze. “Charlotte was skiing like a god,” said Anna Haag, who skied the third leg for Sweden. “I love these girls.” While Kalla provided a spectacular finish to the race, the most surprising

speedskating team at the 1988 Calgary Games. Not that it made Verweij feel any better. “Silver is losing,” he said. “It is in very small things that I could have made the difference. It happened. I cannot get those thousands back.” On the podium, Brodka exchanged a few words with the silver medalist. “I told Koen I am sorry, but this is sports,” Brodka said. “There should only be one Olympic champion. Even if I would have lost, there should only be one winner.” The bronze went to Canada’s Denny Morrison, his second medal in Sochi. The 29-year-old Brodka is a firefighter and former short track skater who placed 27th in the 1,500 at the Vancouver Games four years ago. Though he had put up solid World Cup results in recent months, he had never won a major international event and there was little to indicate he would break through in Sochi. Now, he’s got the biggest prize of all. “When I conquered Shani Davis, I realized that I might step up on the podium,” Brodka said. The 31-year -old Davis, runner-up in the 1,500 at the last two Olympics, faded badly over the final lap. The Chicago native wound up 11th in what could be the final individual event of his brilliant Olympic career. If this was the end, it was a dismal way to go out. Davis and the Americans were caught up in a debate over the high-tech suits they had never worn in competition, finally leading the team to hastily switch back to the suits they had worn before at the country’s Olympic trials and on the World Cup circuit. The change didn’t help. Davis was 11th, nearly a full second off the winner’s

performance came from Norway. The Norwegian women had not lost a relay since 2009 and entered the race as huge favorites, with a team that featured the top four skiers in the overall World Cup standings. But they fell behind on the second leg and by the time Bjoergen set out on the fourth, they were 33 seconds back. Bjoergen couldn’t get much closer, and shut down over the last lap to save energy. Norway finished 53.6 seconds behind Sweden, with France taking fourth. “It is tough to see because we are so good in relay, we have always been so good, many seconds before the other girls,” said Heidi Weng, who skied the first leg for Norway. “And today others were better than us.” Kalla became the first athlete to win three medals in Sochi, after taking silver in both the skiathlon and the 10K classical race. Kalla took gold in the 10K freestyle race in Vancouver, but this was her most impressive Olympic performance yet. Sweden seemed to have lost its chance at a gold medal after Haag couldn’t keep up with Finland’s Kerttu Niskanen and Germany’s Claudia Nystad on the third leg. But Ida Ingemarsdotter, who skied Sweden’s first leg, knew that with Kalla as the anchor, there was still a chance. “I know when her eyes go dark, she will go fast,” Ingemarsdotter said.

Tretiakov wins gold in skeleton KRASNAYA POLYANA, Russia (AP) — One year after a giant meteor streaked across Russia’s sky, Alexander Tretiakov flashed by. Accelerating down his home track lined from top to bottom with flag-waving, chanting countrymen, Tretiakov won the Olympic gold medal in men’s skeleton on Saturday night, pulling away from the world’s top sliders who were no match for his breakneck speed and precise driving. Tretiakov completed four trips down the Sanki Sliding Center track in 3 minutes, 44.29 seconds, easily beating Latvia’s Martins Dukurs (3:45.10), who settled for silver again after having gold slip from his hands four years ago in Vancouver. Matt Antoine won the bronze, the first skeleton medal for an American man since Jimmy Shea’s gold in 2002. John Daly of Smithtown, N.Y., entered the final run in fourth place, but slipped on the starting ramp and had his sled pop from the grooves. He dropped to 15th. With cries of “Ro-ssi-ya, Ro-ssi-ya,” echoing off the mountain and toward the ski resort area down below, T retiakov won the host nation’s fourth gold of the Sochi Games. And with the per formance Tretiakov, the bronze medalist in Vancouver, is set to receive a reward from the heavens. On Feb. 15 last year, a meteroite zoomed over Russia’s Ural Mountains, caus-

ing a sonic boom and exploding over the city of Chelyabinsk. A piece of the space rock was recovered by scientists, and fragments of that have been embedded in commemorative medals that a regional government is offering the winners of seven Olympic events staged on the anniversary. Fitting for the “Russian Rocket.” “This is a very important medal, it’s a real medal and I’m happy to win it for my country,” Tretiakov said of his Olympic gold. After two blistering runs on Friday, Tretiakov began the third heat with a 0.56second lead over Dukurs,

who had been reminded of his near miss for gold in Vancouver all week. Dukurs led after three runs in Whistler, but the two-time world champion was caught in the final heat by Canada’s Jon Montgomery, another hometown favorite. Skeleton’s best slider for several years, Dukurs, who won six of eight World Cup events this season, had learned the hard way that no lead is safe, and nothing is guaranteed until the last man is across the finish line. Tretiakov, though, wasn’t slowing down for anyone. Matching his start record (4.47) for the third consecutive heat, he completed his

time. Brian Hansen of Glenview, Ill., was the top-finishing American in seventh — matching the best performance by a U.S. speedskater at these hugely disappointing games. “We have no medals, man. We have none,” Davis said. “And the way things are looking, we might not get any. It’s sad, because we’ve had a lot of potential, a lot of talent. It’s terrible, a big, big, big disappointment.” Davis said the debate over the suits drained him mentally before he ever raced. He was essentially done after a poor showing in the 1,000, an event he had won in both Turin and Vancouver. “I did as much as I could to get myself ready,” Davis said, “but I felt defeated.” Defending Olympic champion Mark Tuitert of the Netherlands briefly claimed the top spot on the scoreboard before sinking to fifth. Russia’s Denis Yuskov just missed a medal, winding up 0.15 behind Morrison’s time of 1:45.22. The other Americans also fared poorly. Joey Mantia of Ocala, Fla., finished 22nd and Jonathan Kuck of Champaign, Ill., was 37th out of 40 skaters.

third run in 56.28 seconds, and as Dukurs waited for his turn to go he had to know deep down that the race was over. Dukurs, who has won 24 of the past 28 World Cup events, managed to trim 0.02 seconds off Tretiakov’s margin on his third run, but needing to make up more than a half-second on his last descent was asking way too much. “I didn’t like make up illusions that I will come here and win the gold,” said Dukurs, who was trying to win Latvia’s first gold at the Winter Games. “I was aiming for four good runs, and what comes out of that, we will see.”

Berlusconi remains a force in Italy turmoil Roswell Daily Record

MILAN (AP) — He has been convicted of tax fraud, booted out of the Senate and banned from political office. In other countries, that would be three strikes. But in Italy, Silvio Berlusconi has not lost his political legitimacy, and it will be on full display when the former premier leads his Forza Italia party to meet with Italy’s president to discuss prospects for a new government after Premier Enrico Letta’s resignation Friday. Berlusconi’s reemergence on Italy’s political scene comes just days after a court in Naples put him on trial yet again, this time for allegedly paying a senator 3 million euros ($4 million) to switch parties to bring down a rival government. “Silvio Berlusconi is a survivor. He has survived many crises, political and legal. He is not going to give up,� said Wolfango Piccoli, an Italian political analyst based in London. “Italians are used to seeing Berlusconi as a political leader, regardless of whether he is a felon or regardless of whether he lost his seat in the Parliament.� Berlusconi is just one of the political leaders that President Giorgio Napolitano was meeting Friday and Saturday to see if Matteo Renzi, the leader of the Democratic Party who engineered Letta’s demise, has enough support in Parliament to head a new government. If Napolitano is satisfied that Renzi does, he could tap him as early as this weekend to form a new government, which would then have to pass votes of confidence in Parliament.

revenue. It also is personally awkward in the wake of news reports this week that Napolitano had begun informal consultations with Mario Monti to become premier months before Berlusconi was forced from office in 2011. There has never been much sympathy between Berlusconi, the 77-year-old three-time premier and media mogul, and Napolitano, the 88-year-old president.

Berlusconi

The anomaly of Berlusconi, a convicted felon, negotiating a new government program with Italy’s head of state is just one of several oddities that are characterizing the irregular political transition now underway in Italy. They include a government leadership change forced not by Parliament but by an internal power struggle within the Democratic Party, and the fact that Renzi, the presumed new premier, has never been elected to Parliament. For Italians, it also is significant that Renzi would be the third straight premier who did not run as a candidate for the office. “Italy is an awkward place,� said political analyst Roberto D’Alimonte of Rome’s LUISS University. “Are you surprised?� Awkward doesn’t begin to describe the upcoming meeting between Berlusconi and Italy’s president. It is institutionally awkward, given Berlusconi’s conviction on a charge of defrauding the state of tax

Napolitano is a former member of the now-defunct Italian communist party that has been the target of Berlusconi’s political diatribes long since its demise. Just last summer, Berlusconi strongly hinted that his tax fraud conviction should be pardoned, but the president fir mly rebuffed him. “If it wasn’t such a tragic moment, it would be amusing,� constitutional law expert Lorenza Carlassare told La Repubblica regarding Berlusconi’s continued role in Italian political life. “Certainly, in this way, it is embarrassing for the president’s office.�

But Carlassare said she didn’t see a way for Napolitano to refuse a meeting with Berlusconi, given that he still commands a large segment of the electorate.

“It is such an unusual situation that I wouldn’t know how to respond. The growing embarrassment also is in relation to a person who is running the third-most popular Italian party, and in ter ms of coalitions, the one that polls put first,� Carlassare said.

Heroin sees resurgence In this Monday, May 6, 2013, file photo, a drug addict prepares a needle to inject himself with heroin in front of a church in the Skid Row area of Los Angeles.

NEW YORK (AP) — Heroin was supposed to be an obsolete evil, a blurry memory of a dangerous drug that dwelled in some dark recess of American culture. But smack never really disappeared. It comes in waves, and one such swell is cresting across the nation, sparking widespread worry among government officials and driving up overdose deaths — including, it appears, that of Oscar winning actor Philip Seymour Hoffman. Fueled by a crackdown on prescription pain killers and an abundant supply of cheap heroin that’s more potent than ever, the drug that has killed famous rock stars and everyday Americans alike is making headlines again. “Heroin has this sort of dark allure to it that’s part of its mystique,� said Eric Schneider, a professor at the University of Pennsylvania who wrote the book “Smack: Heroin

in the City,� a historical account of the drug. “What I’ve heard from heroin users is that flirting with addiction is part of the allure: to sort of see how close to that edge you can get and still pull back.� Medical examiners have not made an of ficial deter mination of the cause of the 46-year-old actor’s death, but police have been investigating it as an overdose. Hoffman was found in a bathroom with a syringe in his arm. Authorities say a number of factors are fueling the drug’s use, including relatively low prices and a less demonized image than it once had. Rather than seeing heroin as the point-of-no-return drug of strung-out junkies — in his 1967 song “Heroin,� Lou Reed called it “my wife and ... my life� — some users now see it as an inexpensive alternative to oxycodone and other prescription opiate drugs. “People think that it is someone who is a bum,

who’s homeless, who has no money and who is sort of living at the very bottom,� said Michael Clune, a former addict who wrote the memoir ‘White Out: The Secret Life of Heroin.’ “When the truth is, it really is everywhere.�

The number of recorded heroin overdose deaths nearly doubled from 1,842 in 2000 to 3,036 in 2010, according to the most recent statistics available from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Heroin deaths still account for a relatively small percentage of total drug overdose deaths: less than 10 percent in 2010, for example.

Last month, the governor of Vermont devoted almost his entire State of the State address to the state’s heroin problem, calling on the Legislature to pass laws encouraging treatment and seek ideas on the best way to prevent people from becoming addicted.

ANIMAL MOMS CUSTOMIZE MILK DEPENDING ON BABY’S SEX

WASHINGTON (AP) — A special blend of mother’s milk just for girls? New research shows animal moms are customizing their milk in surprising ways depending on whether they have a boy or a girl. The studies raise questions for human babies, too — about how to choose the donor milk that’s used for hospitalized preemies, or whether we should explore gender-specific infant formula. “There’s been this myth that mother’s milk is pretty standard,� said Harvard University evolutionary biologist Katie Hinde, whose research suggests that’s far from true — in monkeys and cows, at least. Instead, “the biological recipes for sons and daughters may be different,� she told a meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science on Friday. Pediatricians have long stressed that breast milk is best when it comes to baby’s first food. Breast-fed infants are healthier, suffering fewer illnesses such as diarrhea, earaches or pneumonia during the first year of life and less likely to develop asthma or obesity later on. But beyond general nutrition, there have been few studies of the content of human breast milk, and how it might vary from one birth to the next or even over the course of one baby’s growth. That research is difficult to conduct in people. So Hinde studies the milk that rhesus monkey mothers make for their babies. The milk is richer in fat when monkeys

have male babies, especially when it’s mom’s first birth, she found. But they made a lot more milk when they had daughters, Hinde discovered. Do daughters nurse more, spurring production? Or does something signal mom prenatally to produce more? To tell, Hinde paired with Kansas State University researchers to examine lactation records of nearly 1.5 million Holstein cows. Unlike monkey babies, calves are separated from their mothers early on, meaning any difference should be prenatal. Sure enough, cows that bore daughters produced about 1.6 percent more milk. Since cows lactate for 305 days, that adds up. More interesting, cows often lactate while pregnant — and those that bore a second daughter in a row produced almost 1,000 more pounds of milk over nearly two years than those that produced only sons, Hinde calculated. Back to the monkeys — where Hinde found still more differences in the quality of the milk. Milk produced for monkey daughters contains more calcium, she found. One explanation: Female monkeys’ skeletons mature faster than males’ do, suggesting they need a bigger infusion of this bonestrengthening mineral. Human girls’ skeletons mature faster than boys, too, but there haven’t been similar studies of calcium in human breast milk, Hinde said.

The Spanish conservative government, which enjoys an absolute majority in Parliament, plans to make a law that offers citizenship to the legions of Jews forced to flee Spain in 1492. Right: In this Oct. 7, 2013, file photo, Orthodox Jews gather to watch the funeral procession of Rabbi Ovadia Yosef in Jerusalem.

Once hounded, Sephardic Jews find Spanish embrace MADRID (AP) — They were burned at the stake, forced to convert or chased into exile. Now Spain is moving to right a half-millennium old “historic mistake” against its onetime flourishing Sephardic Jewish community: the European Union country is on the verge of offering citizenship to descendants of victims estimated to number in the millions. The Spanish conservative government plans to make amends with a law expected to be passed within weeks or months in Parliament that offers citizenship to the descendants of legions of Jews forced to flee in 1492. Asked whether the new law amounted to an apology, Spanish Justice Minister Alberto Ruiz-Gallardon replied: “Without a doubt.” “What the law will do, five centuries later, is make amends for a terrible historic mistake, one of the worst that Spaniards ever made,” Ruiz-Gallardon told The Associated

Press in an interview. of Descendants Sephardic Jews, he said, will be considered “children of Spain.” The term “Sephardic” literally means “Spanish” in Hebrew, but the label has come also to apply to one of the two main variants of Jewish religious practice. The other — and globally dominant one — being “Ashkenazic,” which applies to Jews whose lineage, in recent times, is traced to norther n and eastern Europe. Because of mixing between the groups and other factors, there is no accepted figure for the global Sephardic population, but reasonable estimates would range between a fifth and a third of the world’s roughly 13 million Jews. Hundreds of thousands live in France and already have EU passports. But the largest community is in Israel, where almost half of the 6 million Jews are considered Sephardic.

It is not completely clear how much of a historical link Spain will require. Most of Israel’s Sephardics hail from norther n Africa and southern Europe, which were early ports of call after the expulsion from Spain, and so they may be able to easily show direct links. But other communities, from places like Iraq and Yemen, are considered Sephardic by religious practice yet may have trouble proving a connection to Spain. Either way, interest already is running high. Hundreds of Israelis claiming Sephardic ancestry have contacted the Spanish Embassy in Tel Aviv, begun researching their family histories and taken to the airwaves to discuss their newfound citizenship possibilities. To some, the prospect of Spanish citizenship marks a significant dose of historic justice. T o others, it simply offers a European Union

passport. That’s a big deal in a country that is still technically at war with many of its neighbors and where prosperity is a relatively recent phenomenon. Israel’s per capita GDP of nearly $40,000 year is significantly higher than that of Spain — which has been wracked by economic crisis in recent years — and on a par with rich nations like France and Britain. But the Sephardics in Israel, despite their large numbers, have yet to close the socio-economic gap with the European Jews who founded the country and control most levers of power. There has never been a Sephardic prime minister, and the Ashkenazi Jews still earn more on average and are overwhelmingly dominant in academia and other key areas. “I want to live somewhere else, and if I can do it without too much of a fuss I will,” said Maoz Mizrachi, a 25-year -old

salesman whose father’s family traces its roots to Spain. “It’s tough for young people to get ahead here and this gives me the opportunity to try somewhere else.” The fact that Israel’s economy is actually in better shape than Spain’s didn’t seem to concer n him: “If I get it (Spanish citizenship), I’ll be the happiest guy in the world,” he said. Leon Amiras, who heads an association of immigrants to Israel from Latin countries, said his phone hasn’t stopped ringing since the news emerged. “People from every corner are interested, from professors to doctors, engineers to plumbers and bus drivers,” he said. “Everyone is talking about this.” The refor m will allow dual nationality, enabling the newly minted Spaniards to retain their previous citizenship. Such an arrangement would give Sephardic Jews the

same dual nationality privilege Spain currently grants only to Latin Americans. Elsewhere in Europe, Germany offers citizenship to descendants of Jews forced to flee the Nazis. Israel itself, of course, offers automatic citizenship to Jews.

Previously, under a 1924 law, the government had discretionary powers to award Sephardic Jews nationality, but the new law is much more far reaching: According to Ruiz-Gallardon, Spanish nationality to those who can prove ancestry will be a right the authorities must honor. The nuts and bolts of the new law, the government says, will be relatively simple: Applicants need only have their ancestry certified by a rabbi in any country and the Spanish Federation of Jewish Communities. Genetic testing has not been mentioned as an option.

Baby Boomer Conference and Business Expo returns to Roswell

BY RANDAL SEYLER RECORD STAFF WRITER KELLY BERRONES PHOTOS

ROSWELL — The Baby Boomer Conference and Business Expo returns to the Roswell Community Center on Saturday, Feb. 22. The annual event returns for the fifth time this weekend, and it is presented by Frontier Medical Home Health Care, where event founder Barbara Gomez works as an event coordinator. "When we started in 2010, people needed health care information, and that was the focus at first." However, as time went on, Gomez realized that the Baby Boomers needed information about a wide range of topics, ranging from parenting to assisted living arrangements and everything in between. "The Boomer generation is the Sandwich Generation," she said. "We're sandwiched in between generations, with many still raising children while also providing care to aging parents, and even taking steps to make preparations for our own time when we may need assisted living." "The expo provides information about everything from living wills and trusts to plastic surgery to pit barbeque," Gomez said. Visitors will also have access to doctors and health care providers speaking on a range of topics, provided by the Eastern New Mexico Medical Center, a Diamond Sponsor of the event. “This is the fifth year we’ve been a premier sponsor for the event, and we continue to support it because of the great turnout,” said Brooke Linthicum, marketing director for the Eastern New Mexico Medical Center. “The conference is a wonderful venue for community outreach that makes us able to connect with the community, and the proceeds always go to a great charity.”

C

Linthicum said visitors get to learn more about the services provided by ENMMC and meet with doctors, so from a business perspective, the Baby Boomer Conference and Business Expo is a success. But the event draws a wider audience than just 50somethings. “There is just so much good information at the conference, it really has something for everybody,” Linthicum said. “There are the heavy topics, like cancer, but there are fun things too. It’s really just a wonderful event.” This year's expo will be held from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and will feature dozens of speakers and vendor booths, as well as food, fun and entertainment, including the popular Vinnie Vagatone and the Vagabons. In keeping with the “Rock and Roll Is Here To Stay” theme of this year’s event, many at the expo will be dressed in 1950s rock and roll style. Besides just providing health care information, Gomez wanted the Boomer Expo to be a business showcase as well, where area businesses could tout their services to the Boomer Generation. Vendors come from all over Southeastern New Mexico, and more than

3,000 visitors came to last year's Expo, Gomez said. "Last year we had 40-50 booths, and this year we are on track to have 70-80 vendors attend," she said. Vinnie and the Vagabonds will be on hand starting at 3 p.m. to provide music from the 1950s through the mid-1970s, and there will be other entertainment throughout the day, including children from local music programs, and a senior citizen tap dance group. Demonstrations will be held throughout the day of exercise programs such as Crossfit, Zumba, Jazzercise, Gomez said. There will also be a drawing for a grand prize package that will include a travel voucher, Gomez said. Along with the travel voucher, the Vacation Extravaganza prize package will include a mini makeover with medical spa treatments, tooth whitening and more, she said. Tickets for the drawing will be sold for $10 each and the proceeds will go to the Roswell Red Shield Project, Gomez said. The Red Shield is part of an initiative that includes plans to build a homeless shelter in Chaves County, leading eventually to a partnership with the Salvation Army to build a long-term transitional supportive housing program called a Red Shield Shelter.

Yucca to hold adult and youth co-ed volleyball leagues Yucca Recreation Center, 500 S. Richardson Ave., is taking registration for youth and adult coed volleyball teams until March 18. The youth volleyball teams are open for children from second through eighth grades. Youth valley ball has been part of the Yucca schedule for 10 years. The

teams are divided by grades, depending upon the number of people who register. Some grades will be combined. The cost per student is $30. Adult Co-ed Volley Ball has proven extremely popular. It has been an ongoing part of the Roswell sports scene for at least

20 years. Registration and cost is done on a per-team basis, so people are urged to gather up 10 friends who are looking for exercise and just plain fun, and register. The cost per 10-member team is $130. Last year, Yucca had 350 young players in the youth group,

and in adult co-ed group, the Center has had up to 15 teams registered per season. The Yucca Recreational Center will often use two courts with the youth groups. The fun will begin in late March. The games run Monday through Saturday, from 5 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. during the week and on

Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 8:30 p.m., depending on the number of registrations, although the adult teams usually don’t play on weekends. Yucca Recreational Center is also seeking officials to referee and keep score during the games. The pay for officials is $10.

No need for a party to have shrimp cocktail

My favorite thing about fancy parties? They almost always include a shrimp cocktail appetizer — platters of giant, plump shrimp just waiting to be dunked into a piquant cocktail sauce. But there’s no reason you have to wait for fancy parties to enjoy this treat. All you need is an excuse. And to me, there’s none better than an Oscar viewing party. Best yet, shrimp cocktail is easy to make, can be done in advance, and you don’t even have to cook the shrimp yourself (but it is better if you do). My preference is for large or jumbo shrimp, generally classified as 10 to 15 shrimp per pound. Large usually come in at 15 to 30 per pound. The best shrimp are flash frozen within hours of being caught. This preserves the flavor and texture of the shrimp. Keep the shrimp frozen until just before you want to serve or cook them. When you are ready, thaw the shrimp under cold running water. This is essential to preserving the texture of the shrimp. For shrimp cocktail, I cook the shrimp by a method that is closer to poaching. I want the

shrimp to be fully cooked, but not over -cooked and this is my fail-safe method. I boil a big pot of salted water and add fresh lemons just before adding the thawed shrimp. As soon as the shrimp are added, the lid goes on the pot and the heat is turned off until the shrimp are cooked, about 3 to 4 minutes for most jumbo shrimp. Once the shrimp are cooked, I dunk them in cold water to stop the cooking. You know when shrimp are perfectly cooked when the shells come off easily. The shells tend to stick to over-cooked shrimp. Keep the peeled shrimp dry and cold in the refrigerator, then serve with homemade cocktail sauce. The bloody mary cocktail sauce here is one of my favorites. The addition of vodka adds a spike of flavor and the rim of celery salt is both pretty and reminiscent of that classic cocktail.

SHRIMP COCKTAIL WITH BLOODY MARY SAUCE This sweet and smoky, tart and tangy bloody mary sauce is so good you will want to drink it — or adopt it as both your house cocktail sauce and the mixer for your favorite eye opener. Rim your serving dish with

celery salt before serving for a special presentation and that hint of celery. Start to finish: 20 minutes Servings: 6 Kosher salt 2 lemons, quartered 2 pounds jumbo shell-on raw shrimp, thawed if frozen For the sauce: 1/2 cup ketchup 1/2 cup Heinz Chili Sauce Zest and juice of 1 small lemon Juice of 1/2 small lime 1 heaping tablespoon prepared white horseradish (or more to taste) 1 teaspoon pureed chipotle peppers in adobo (or more to taste) 2 tablespoons (1 ounce) vodka 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce Pinch garlic salt Celery salt, for serving

Fill a large (6- to 8-quart) stockpot halfway with water, then add 2 tablespoons of salt. Bring to a boil. Add the lemons, then return the water to a boil. Add the shrimp, turn off the heat and cover the pot. Leave the shrimp in the water for 2 to 4 minutes, or until cooked through, pink and curled. The larger the shrimp, the longer they will take to cook.

Use a slotted spoon to transfer the shrimp to a large bowl. Add enough cold water to cover the shrimp, then stir to cool them. When the shrimp are cool, peel and devein them, then pat them dry and transfer to a platter or plate. Refrigerate until ready to serve. To make the sauce, in a medium non-reactive bowl, mix together the ketchup, chili sauce, lemon juice and zest, lime juice, horseradish, pureed chipotle, vodka, Worcestershire and garlic salt. Taste and adjust

seasonings. If you like a lot of horseradish and chipotle, you may want to add more. The sauce can be made and refrigerated in a glass jar up to one week in advance. Sprinkle celery salt around the rim of a serving dish. Transfer the cocktail sauce to a serving bowl and place in the center of the serving dish. Arrange the chilled shrimp around the edges.

Olympic Viewing: Live and die with figure skating Highlights from television coverage of the Sochi Olympics:

SKATE OFF Live by figure skating, die by figure skating. Friday’s men’s free skate competition had neither artistry nor suspense, with underwhelming performances from many of the top competitors. Figure skating is the most popular event of the Winter Olympics, so it’s easy to understand why NBC locked in the final 90 minutes of its broadcast for it. When things turn out so poorly, it can’t help but bring the entire broadcast down. NBC’s analysts didn’t hide their disappointment, although in one case maybe they should have: Scott Hamilton’s nearly teary reaction to Canada’s Patrick Chan succumbing to pressure and losing out on a chance to win a gold medal was over the top. Best

observation came from Sandra Bezic: “Skaters of this generation tend to have computers for brains. They’re counting points, instead of just skating.”

WEIR WARDROBE WATCH Johnny Weir could have gone the easy route and worn red on Valentine’s Day, but instead NBC’s skating analyst had a sparkling silver jacket, with what seemed to be a pearl bolo tie. EYE ON COSTAS Meredith Vieira was a solid pro in her first turn as prime-time Olympics host, filling in for the still-ailing Bob Costas, although she wasn’t given much to do. There’s been some online grumbling about NBC turning to two “Today” show hosts to sub for Costas (Matt Lauer did it the last three nights) instead of a sportscaster. But, really, what’s

required is an engaging MC. If NBC attracts just a sports audience to the prime-time telecast, it fails. It was smart to have a woman do the job on a night where skating dominated the agenda. Vieira is likely to be back again Saturday; NBC says Costas is improving but is still day to day.

TWO RACERS The technology that allows NBC to superimpose another skier or sledder’s ride onto another’s for comparison purposes is illuminating and kinda cool. Even better that it’s not overused. SAD SIGHT American Katie Uhlaender was already hurting, having just lost out on a medal in the women’s skeleton by four one-hundredths of a point, but was keeping it

together for an interview with NBC reporter Lewis Johnson. Then Johnson asked Uhlaender what she thought her father, who died last summer, would have said about her Olympics performance. That brought the tears. Yes, it was one of the emotional story lines NBC had sought to emphasize — just like silver medal-winning American Noelle Pikus-Pace’s comeback from a miscarriage — but bringing it up at that point felt cruel.

TWEET OF THE NIGHT “Does anyone else hear the timpani at the beginning of NBC’s Olympic them and think, ‘George, George, George of the Jungle’?” RATINGS Buoyed by a snowboarding sweep by three Americans, the Olympics rebounded Thursday

night to an average of 22.9 million viewers, the Nielsen company said. That’s down from 24.8 million viewers for the corresponding night four years ago in Vancouver, but up from 19.4 million eight years ago in Italy.

KERRIGAN VS. HARDING NBC will likely air its 45minute retrospective on the attack on figure skater Nancy Kerrigan by associates of competitor Tonya Harding on Feb. 23, the last night of the Olympics, said Jim Bell, executive producer of NBC’s coverage. The 20-year anniversary piece is one of the few times Kerrigan, who is working as an NBC analyst, has spoken publicly about the attack, which became a soap opera of the 1994 Games. Bell said it could run earlier if weather forces delays in some Olympic competitions.

Agent: Player A in NFL report is A. McDonald Roswell Daily Record

A former Miami Dolphins lineman identified as one of the targets of harassment in the racially charged bullying scandal, has no has no problem with the team, his agent said in a statement Saturday. Andrew McDonald, Player A in an NFL-ordered report released Friday by lawyer Ted Wells, said in the statement that he is “disappointed his name has become associated” with the revelations about the reported harassment. The report of Jonathan Martin’s allegations that he was harassed by teammate Richie Incognito, states that Dolphins offensive line coach Jim Turner didn’t attempt to stop the behavior and even took part in some of the taunting of Player A. McDonald’s agent, Brett Tessler, said in the state-

ment to The Associated Press that McDonald has “been a member of another organization since last season and is trying to focus on his future. When Ted Wells approached Andrew at the end of the investigation, Mr. Wells already had all the infor mation contained in the report that he had gotten elsewhere. “While Andrew can’t speak for other players involved in the report, he personally has had no problem with the Miami Dolphins organization and has the highest opinion of Coach Turner both personally and professionally and feels terrible about the way their relationship has been portrayed in the report.” McDonald, 25, is currently with the Carolina Panthers. Several people interviewed told investigators

that Turner gave Player A, a male sex doll as a gag gift around Christmas 2012. Turner told investigators he did not remember the incident, but investigators said they did not believe him. When asked if McDonald felt he was bullied or harassed, Tessler said the statement speaks for itself. The 6-foot-6, 310 pound McDonald was an undrafted rookie out of Indiana who spent two seasons on the Dolphins practice squad before being released in final cuts last August. He signed with Carolina’s practice squad in October and recently signed a “futures contract” with the Panthers The NFL report stated there was a “patter n of harassment” committed by at least three players and extended to two lineman and an assistant trainer, all

targets of vicious taunts and racist insults. It state that guard John Jerry and center Mike Pouncey followed Incognito’s lead in harassing Martin, who left the team in October. They threatened to rape his sister, called him a long list of slurs and bullied him for not being “black enough.” The other harassed player, the report said, was “subjected to homophobic name-calling and improper physical touching,” while the assistant trainer, who was bor n in Japan, was subjected to racial slurs. “It was not difficult to conclude that the Assistant Trainer and Player A were harassed, but the questions raised in Martin’s case were more complex, nuanced and difficult,” the report says.

Tanaka may pitch, but $155M man not born to run

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — As dozens of cameras recorded his every move and perhaps 150 media watched on a cool and breezy morning, Masahiro Tanaka slowly jogged four laps on the warning track around a back field following his first official workout with the New York Yankees. The $155 million man looked gassed. He may pitch great, but Tanaka clearly was not born to run. “I actually didn’t know I was going to run this much,” he said through a translator Saturday. “And I’m a little bit of a slow runner. But that part I really can’t help.” The 25-year-old right-hander jogged onto the field with Hiroki Kuroda and played catch with his 39-year-old countryman, who is preparing for his seventh U.S. season. When it was time to throw his bullpen session, Tanaka took a mound on field No. 3 between Kuroda and ace CC Sabathia, with Ivan Nova at the far end. Tanaka has quickly found a senpai (respected elder) to his kohai (protege). “I feel very fortunate and very thankful that he is here,” Tanaka said. “He is a veteran here in the majors.” Tanaka went 24-0 with a 1.27 ERA last year and led the Rakuten Golden Eagles to their first Japan Series title. His reception is similar to the one Hideki Matsui received 11 years ago after leaving the Yomiuri Giants to sign with the Yankees. The Yankees built a tent behind third base for Matsui’s news conferences, and cameras lined both

foul lines for the outfielder’s first batting practice, which was televised live in Japan. Media crowded the path to field No. 3 when Tanaka emerged with Kuroda, and cameramen jostled for position in foul territory behind third base and in left field to capture his tossing in the outfield and his 32 pitches, his second bullpen since arriving in the U.S. After the bullpen and fielding practice, he made the roughly

one-mile run with Nova, Francisco Rondon and Danny Burawa. It was Tanaka’s first time wearing the pants of the famous white pinstriped uniform — he also had on a dark blue Yankees batting practice jersey with white trim. A couple of fans shouted “Tanaka-san!” “Honestly, when I stepped out on the field today, I was very, very surprised as to how many media there were out there,” he said. “As a player, I feel very honored

to get this much attention. Some of the fans were cheering today, and actually I was very happy to receive those cheers. But at the same time I understand that I haven’t given out any results on the field yet, so my focus is to train and go out there and try to get those results.” Tanaka pitched to backup Francisco Cervelli, while Sabathia threw to Brian McCann, the Yankees’ new starter. Cervelli didn’t think all the attention would

become a distraction for the Tanaka. “He’s not the only guy who makes a hundred million here,” Cervelli said. “They’ll be attention for a lot of people. Even me, I don’t make even a million, I got attention sometimes. You get used to it.” Tanaka will have to adjust to the rhythm of Major League Baseball, where most starting pitchers have four days’ rest. In Japan, starting pitchers appear once a week. He said he was used to workouts of longer duration. “Some of the bullpen numbers that I’ve heard that they throw in Japan, it’s pretty hard to work it over here every five days throwing 100 pitches in between a start,” Yankees manager Joe Girardi said. And there is that constant glare of the spotlight. “I’m sure the practice part is the easy part of his day. It’s where he can just go do what he loves to do,” Girardi said. “Obviously the media that he has to handle before and after is going to be taxing probably at times, but he’s probably accustomed to it and understood when he signed here that was part of the deal.” When his day was over, Tanaka sat in the pavilion and answered questions from the English-language reporters, then from the Japanese. And what will be the lasting memory from his first day with his new team. “Probably what I’ll remember,” he said, “is the four laps that we did at the end was pretty hard.”

Carter, Purdue pound Indiana No. 10 Bearcats shake off

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) — Seattle native Sterling Carter didn’t have the opportunity to celebrate his mother, Debr ea’s, birthday with her on Friday, but he wanted to give her a present from afar. The fifth-year graduate student transfer fr om Seattle University delivered that gift in a big way Satur day in Mackey Arena, scoring 19 points in the Boilermakers’ 82-64 victory against rival Indiana. The guar d, who was averaging 4.3 points per game in a Pur due uniform, fueled a 14-1 burst to begin the second half, extending the Boilermakers’ 38-33 halftime lead to 52-34 with just more than 15 minutes remaining. Carter, who made 6 of 8 field goal attempts including 5 of 6 fr om 3-point range, scored 10 in that pivotal second-half start that completed a 19-1 run that began with Purdue (15-10, 5-7 Big Ten) scoring the final five points of the first half. “I’m not from here, but it meant a lot to my teammates, so, I felt that it was my job to make sure we got this victory,” Carter said. “It was not only scoring, but it was playing har d and playing with energy. Plus, I had to give my mom a birthday gift.” “We thought Sterling did

a hell of a job,” said Purdue senior guard Terone Johnson, who contributed 14 points, 12 during the first 20 minutes. “Not only did he knock down big shots, but he did a good job defensively on Yogi Ferr ell. He wanted to make Yogi take shots that wer en’t comfortable. That’s what Sterling did.” While Ferr ell had 27 points, he was only 6 of 17 from the field, including 4 of 12 from 3-point range. Indiana (14-11, 4-8) has

lost consecutive games to Minnesota, Penn State and now Pur due, since beating Michigan 63-52 on Feb. 2, the Hoosiers. “Sterling has been making really hard plays, and tonight, he was making shots and feeling it,” said Purdue freshman forward Basil Smotherman. “Sterling is not from Indiana, and it’s his first IndianaPur due game, but he showed out for Seattle today. I was proud of him for never letting up.”

CINCINNATI (AP) — The game plan has become common for Cincinnati. Play close games, and turn it over to the seniors in the end. It worked again on Saturday for the 10th-ranked Bearcats. Sean Kilpatrick scored 28 points, 19 in the second half, and Justin Jackson overcame foul problems to add 13 points, all in the second half, as the Bearcats shook off Houston, 73-62. Jackson and Kilpatrick teamed up to score 32 of Cincinnati’s 44 points in the second half to keep the Bearcats in the game until they could pull away. “We’re seniors,” said Jackson, who was limited to 20 minutes by his foul problems. “This is our team. We know what we need to do to help the team win. In the last five or six minutes, we know we need to step it up.” Coach Mick Cronin has seen it so often that he’s come to count on it. “A lot of that is Justin and (Kilpatrick) and (senior forward) Titus Rubles, and a lot of that is habit,” Cronin said. “Hopefully, it will serve us well in March, when everybody is good and games are close. We get a heightened awareness defensively. We get hard to score on on defense. I don’t like to belittle Houston’s effort. They were making good plays and getting good shots. Late in the game, our defense was what it needed to be.” Houston coach James Dickey has seen enough of Kilpatrick, who also had six assists, five in the second half “I was proud of our team, but certainly, Cincinnati is deserving of being a top 10 team,” Dickey said. “Kilpatrick, what a special player he is. I thought he was

terrific in the second half. He made big plays and put the team on his back.” Shaquille Thomas added 11 points for the Bearcats (23-3, 12-1 American Athletic Conference), who were playing their first game since having a 15-game winning streak snapped with a 76-55 loss at SMU on Feb. 8. Danrad Knowles scored 11 points to lead Houston (12-13, 4-8), which has lost six of its past seven and eight of its past 10 games, led Houston with 11 points. L.J. Rose, Danuel House and TaShawn Thomas each added 10 for the Cougars. “Our guys competed,” Dickey said. “It was a three-point game with about 2 1-2 minutes to go and (Ge’Lawn) Guyn hit two 3s off great penetration by Kilpatrick. When you look at it, both teams in the second half had trouble getting stops. They shoot (60.7) percent and we shoot (61.9) percent in the second half. We went through a stretch there in the last couple of minutes where we couldn’t get a basket and they got more stops than we did, and that turned out to be the difference in the game.” The lead changed hands throughout, the last when Jackson’s dunk made it 59-57. Guyn added back-to-back 3pointers as Cincinnati ended the game with an 18-5 run. “I thought this was a great experience for us today, the way we had to execute to win this game in the second half,” Cronin said. “Houston had a highly efficient offense until we were able to lock in late in the game and get some defensive stops. It was good to have to deal with that. It makes us a better team.”

Ag-based curriculum invigorates Kansas school

WALTON, Kan. (AP) — The door to a hen house burst open on a chilly winter day and several southcentral Kansas charter school students scrambled inside, squealing “Thank you!” to the chickens as they checked for eggs and replenished their grain. It’s a morning ritual at Walton 21st Century Rural Life Center, whose focus on agriculture saved it from closing. The school now attracts a steady stream of visitors from around the country who watch students learn through projects that range from selling eggs to showing pigs at the county fair. The farm curriculum, although still relatively unusual, has been replicated in other Kansas schools and proven successful in more urban environments, including Chicago and Philadelphia. “Kids love it,” said Walton Principal Natise Vogt, adding that the students fight over cleaning up the animals’ droppings. “That’s one of the things that’s important to us. We want kids to enjoy school. We want them to be happy and want to come to school, and that’s what the hands-on learning does.” Located in a farming community of 235 people, the Walton school had barely 80 students when the school district decided to transform the kindergarten to fourth-grade building into an agriculture-focused

charter school. Since making the switch in 2007, enrollment has grown to 183 students. Only about 10 percent of the students at the school about 30 miles north of Wichita live on farms. But all of the kids beg to give Freckles the calf his bottle and Eeyore the donkey his breakfast ration. Cody Eye, 10, of Newton, said students learn math by measuring food and make money for the school by selling the animals. “It teaches us responsibility,” he said. “It teaches us how to take care of animals.” The school’s profile got a boost when the U.S. Department of Education, which provided a grant to get the school started, produced a video about the transformation. The community also bought into the project, with one farmer donating runt pigs and another loaning the donkey during the school year. Today, parents frequently call the school, eager to nab a spot for their children; one of the latest additions to the waiting list was a 3week-old baby. The farming theme also has a long track record of success at the Chicago High School for Agricultural Sciences, where students care for piglets, chickens and horses and grow plants. More than 3,000 students apply each year for about 180 freshman-class openings, principal William

Hook said. “The nice thing is that even the kids who never revisit the idea of agriculture; they still benefit from their ag education, the ideals of get up early, work hard and stay late,” Hook said. In Philadelphia, the W.B. Saul High School of Agricultural Sciences’ 130-acre campus features an area for field crops and livestock pastures. Students at the magnet school have designed an exhibit for a flower show and participate in meat and dairy cattle judging clubs. The ag curriculum efforts aren’t without bumps, though. Next Frontier Academy, an Akron, Ohio-based charter school serving seventh- to ninth-graders, had a goal of 150 students when it opened last fall. But by January, its enrollment was hovering around only 45 students, said John Hairston, one of the founders. Still, Hairston was encouraged, saying the school is receiving more applications and that businesses are coming forward with donations, including a greenhouse. “The whole premise of agriculture is sustainability, and that’s what we are trying to teach our kids, to learn how to sustain themselves,” Hairston said. The Walton school, though never low-performing, has seen test scores increase by about 8 percentage points since switch-

LONDON (AP) — Celebrities, starlets and fashion’s elite packed the front row at London Fashion Week on Saturday, as the style event swung into its second day. London’s weather cleared up to everyone’s relief, though at least two shows made the wet outdoors their theme. Hunter, the maker of the fashionable set’s preferred rubber rain boots, pulled out all the stops with an impressively staged debut show that drew singer Jessie J, Anna Wintour and Stella

McCartney to its front row. Across town, “Les Miserables” actress Samantha Barks joined singer Eliza Doolittle and other starlets at Julien Macdonald’s glamorous showcase. Here are the highlights from Saturday: HUNTER MAKES A SPLASH WITH DEBUT SHOW Watch out: The humble rubber rain boot has arrived with a big splash at the London fashion scene. Hunter, best known for

those sturdy, no-nonsense wellies seen on trendy young attendees of music festivals like Glastonbury, debuted its clothing range in a basement space set up to look like a dark forest, complete with a watery runway and realistic looking birch trees. Models - both male and female - splashed down the catwalk in colorful raincoats and capes, shorts and miniskirts, belted trench coats and puffy winter jackets. Everyone, of course, sported Hunter boots that

ing to the agriculture theme. For the past four years, all of its third- and fourth-graders have measured proficient or higher in math, Vogt said, crediting that to the “excellent problem-solving skills” students learn. Vogt said agriculturethemed schools owe much of their success to the hands-on projects. Some fall flat, she says, recalling the boys who tried to make their own incubator to hatch duck eggs. The

eggs went bad, but Vogt didn’t mind because the students figured out that the reason was the incubator wasn’t keeping the temperature consistent. Other projects are wildly successful. Take the students who worried the barn wasn’t warm enough for the newborn lambs, and designed a solar -powered heater. Kindergartners make lip balm from soybeans, one of the crops they study, and sell it for $3 a tube. Stu-

dents learn about liquids and solids, fill the order themselves and have used the money they’ve raise to purchase two iPads for the classroom. The kindergartners also hatch chicken eggs in an incubator to help them learn about the life cycle and help out with the school’s pigs. After two first-graders show the hogs at the county fair, the animals are processed and the meat is used in school meals.

Celebrities pack it in at London Fashion Week UAW falls 87 votes came in a range of colors and styles, including a heeled ankle-length version. Hunter had drummed up considerable publicity for the event, and its front row VIPs included Vogue editor Anna Wintour, singer Jessie J, as well as designer Stella McCartney. McCartney’s husband, Alasdhair Willis, was creative director of the show. JULIEN MACDONALD: SEQUINS, FEATHERS, SHEER FISHTAILS Is there such a thing as too many sequins? Julien Macdonald will tell you: Never. The flamboyant designer’s creations are almost always sparkly and ultra glamorous, and Saturday’s collection, staged at London’s imposing Royal Courts of Justice, was no different. Models wore skintight cocktail dresses and floorlength fishtail gowns in silver foil, gold lame, iridescent peacock and snake skin, all heavily encrusted in beading and sequins or intricately embroidered. The sparkly bits were often strategically placed, leaving swathes of flesh down the back and on the sides of the body covered only in the sheerest nude mesh. Starlets Samantha Barks, best known as Eponine in the movie “Les Miserables,” joined singer Eliza Doolittle and British model Abbey Clancy at the show’s front row.

short of victory in South CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (AP) — Just 87 votes at the Volkswagen plant in Tennessee separated the United Auto Workers union from what would have been its first successful organization of workers at a foreign automaker in the South. Instead of celebrating a potential watershed moment for labor politics in the region, UAW supporters were left crestfallen by the 712-626 vote against union representation in the election that ended Friday night. The result stunned many labor experts who expected a UAW win because Volkswagen tacitly endorsed the union and even allowed organizers into the Chattanooga factory to make sales pitches. The loss is a major setback for the UAW’s effort to make inroads in the growing South, where foreign automakers have 14 assembly plants, eight built in the past decade, said Kristin Dziczek, director of the labor and industry group at the Center for Automotive Research, an industry think tank in Michigan. “If this was going to work anywhere, this is where it was going to work,” she said of the Volkswagen vote. Organizing a Southern plant is so crucial to the union that UAW President Bob King told workers in a speech that the union has no long-term future without it. The loss means the union remains largely quarantined with the Detroit Three in the Midwest and Northeast. Many viewed VW as the union’s best chance to gain a crucial foothold in the South because other automakers have not been as welcoming as Volkswagen. Labor interests make up half of the supervisory board at VW in Germany, and they questioned why the Chattanooga plant is the company’s only major factory worldwide without formal worker representation. VW wanted a German-style “works council” in Chattanooga to give employees a say over working conditions. The company says U.S. law won’t allow it without an independent union. In Chattanooga, the union faced stern opposition from Republican politicians who warned that a UAW victory would chase away other automakers who might come to the region.

DEAR ABBY UNIVERSAL PRESS SYNDICATE

DEAR ABBY: My youngest grown son discovered that his girlfriend — his possible future wife — was texting pictures of herself to his stepfather. Needless to say, he told her the relationship is over. Now, for obvious reasons, he no longer wants to be around his stepfather, and is deeply concerned about how it will affect his relationship with his mother, my ex-wife. They are close, which I encouraged, but she seems to be in denial about the situation. Have you any suggestions on how to be supportive of my son and

all the dynamics? TOO MUCH DRAMA IN MISSOURI

DEAR TOO MUCH DRAMA: You say your ex-wife seems to be in denial. Was the reason for the breakup ever explained to her? If it wasn’t, then your son should talk to his mother about it, and from then on arrange to see her alone.

#####

DEAR ABBY: I just dropped off my 13-yearold son at a party. He’s a seventhgrader, and when I take him to a friend’s house, if I haven’t met the parents, I walk him to the door and introduce him and myself to them. I do this to try and make sure the parents are at home and responsible. (Honestly, if they weren’t, I’d take my son and leave.) I know it embarrasses him, but most parents thank me because they want to meet the parents of the kids who are in their homes. Times are different for our kids today. I just can’t believe that

COMICS

someone would simply drop off a child and speed away when he/she has absolutely no clue who these people are. I’m not a helicopter parent; I’m just a mother who loves my children enough to make sure they’re in good hands. Recently, a ninth-grader in our school district had a house party where 30 kids received underage drinking citations! Sorry — but I’m taking no chances. Parenting is not being your child’s best friend. Please encourage parents not to be afraid to reach out to other parents. It really does take a village. VIGILANT IN BUCKS COUNTY, PA. DEAR VIGILANT: Your children are fortunate to have a mother who is as involved in their lives as you are. Not all young people are so lucky. Your son may find your vigilance embarrassing, but take comfort in knowing that all kids your son’s age find their parents embarrassing. Orchids to you for pointing out the importance of parents network-

ing with each other to ensure that their children are safe and supervised. When an entire “village” is watching, there is less chance of a lamb straying.

DEAR SURPRISED: Was your wife wearing the lingerie at the time? If not, how did you discover the panties? The surest way to get to the bottom of this would be to ask your wife this question. She may have thought they were cute and bought them on impulse — or they may have been a gift. Please let me know, because not only am I interested in her answer, but I’m sure millions of readers are curious, too.

Indian villages fear man-eating tiger C6 Sunday, February 16, 2014

MANIWALA, India (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; She lies in wait while her victims are collecting firewood, or taking cattle to graze, or working in the fields. She has grabbed people in broad daylight, carrying them away silently into the forests or the sugarcane fields. By the time the victims are found, often little is left but a pair of shoes, unspeakable gore and a ring of drying blood. Over seven weeks she has traveled, almost completely unseen, for more than 120 miles (190 kilometers). She has crossed villages, small towns and at least one highway. A killer is stalking the villages of north India. She has killed at least nine people, all of them poor villagers living on the fringes of one of the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s last wild tiger habitats. They are people who cannot afford a day off work, people who have no indoor plumbing and must use the fields as their toilets. They are people who know little about Indiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recent successes in tiger conservation. But with the sudden appearance of one tiger, they look at an animal so beloved to outsiders and see only a monster. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She has turned into a man-eater,â&#x20AC;? said Vijay Pal Singh, whose neighbor, a 22-year -old farm laborer named Shiv Kumar Singh, was killed as he worked at the edge of a sugarcane field in January. In an area where nearly everyone works outside, this means life has been completely upended. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People are afraid to go into the fields,â&#x20AC;? said Singh. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everything has changed.â&#x20AC;? While hunters are brought in to kill man-eating tigers every year or so in India, it has been decades since a tiger killed

as many people as this one, or stayed on the run so long. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stop now. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll keep killing,â&#x20AC;? said Samar Jeet Singh, a hunter with an aristocratic pedigree, a curled-up moustache and a high-powered heirloom rifle. For almost a month he has been tracking the female tiger, most recently through the forests and dried riverbeds near where she made her last kill, cutting down an elderly buffalo herder last week. Searchers found just part of one arm and one leg. The tiger left the buf falos unharmed. When he finds her, he said, he will shoot her dead. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The time for tranquilizing is over, the time for caging is over,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Now she must be killed.â&#x20AC;? For generations, few in these villages even thought about tigers. The encroachment of towns, widespread poaching and incompetent wildlife programs had devastated Indiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tiger populations, forcing them into ever-smaller enclaves. Corbett National Park, one of Indiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s premier tiger reserves, is barely 25 miles away, but while the villagers around here are used to living with wildlife â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the forests and fields shelter leopards, monkeys, foxes, bears and wild boars â&#x20AC;&#x201D; tigers were extremely rare. The last decade, though, has seen improvements in tiger conservation and growth in the tiger populations. If that is good news in many ways, it has also increased the chances of encounters between tigers and people. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This area is so rich in wildlife,â&#x20AC;? said Vijay Singh, a top regional forestry official in the nearby town of Bijnor (and who, like so

many people in this region has the last name Singh). â&#x20AC;&#x153;That is the problem.â&#x20AC;? The problem is magnified by the choice of crops. Sugarcane is the backbone of the local economy, and thousands of cane fields, with their dense stands of 10-foot-tall plants, offer ideal hiding places. Wildlife experts know little about the tiger they are hunting. They know it is a female because of the

Thousands of zoo animals killed in Europe annually

STOCKHOLM (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; People around the world were stunned when Copenhagen Zoo killed a healthy 2-year-old giraffe named Marius, butchered its carcass in front of a crowd that included children and then fed it to lions. But Mariusâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; fate isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t unique â&#x20AC;&#x201D; thousands of animals are euthanized in European zoos each year for a variety of reasons by zoo managers who say their job is to preserve species, not individual animals. In the U.S., zoos try to avoid killing animals by using contraceptives to make sure they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have more offspring than they can house, but that method has also been criticized for disrupting animalsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; natural behavior. â&#x20AC;&#x201D;â&#x20AC;&#x201D;â&#x20AC;&#x201D; HOW OFTEN ARE LARGE MAMMALS KILLED IN ZOOS? U.S. and European zoological groups refuse to release figures for the total number of animals killed. But David Williams Mitchell, spokesman of the European Association of Zoos and Aquaria, or EAZA, estimates an average zoo in its 347-member organization annually kills about five large mammals, which adds up to 1,735. The number doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t include zoos and animal parks that donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t belong to the association. Animal rights groups suggest numbers are much higher. The Associated Press contacted 10 zoos in Europe â&#x20AC;&#x201D; two refused to comment, four said they never kill any animals unless severely ill and four said they kill between one and 30 animals every year. Two zoos in the U.S. said they only ever kill animals for â&#x20AC;&#x153;quality of life reasons.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201D;â&#x20AC;&#x201D;â&#x20AC;&#x201D; WHY ARE ANIMALS KILLED? Zoos euthanize animals because of poor health, old age, lack of space or conservation management reasons. EAZA policy for zoos in Europe suggests euthanasia may be used as a last resort to achieve a balanced population within breeding programs â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Marius was killed to prevent inbreeding. But Williams Mitchell insists only â&#x20AC;&#x153;a fraction of 1 percentâ&#x20AC;? of the killings are for such reasons. The idea is to maintain a group of genetically healthy animals in zoos that can be used to reintroduce the species into the wild. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a philosophical divide between U.S. and European zoos over best practices. The U.S. Association of Zoos and Aquariums said incidents such as the giraffe killing â&#x20AC;&#x153;do not happen at AZA-accredited zoos.â&#x20AC;? Mike McClure, general curator at the

Roswell Daily Record

Maryland Zoo in Baltimore, says his zooâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s policies theoretically allow for killing animals for breeding purposes or lack of housing but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not something his zoo has done. Generally, he says, animals are only killed due to old age or ill health. In Asia, the parent company for the Singapore Zoo said in a statement that â&#x20AC;&#x153;euthanasia of animals is necessary to maintain the health and welfare of the herd, as overcrowding could lead to injuries, stress and disease outbreak. â&#x20AC;&#x153; â&#x20AC;&#x153;All animals in zoos die at some point and maybe zoos forgot to tell people,â&#x20AC;? said Jens Sigsgaard, director at the Aalborg Zoo in Denmark, which, like the Copenhagen Zoo, performs open dissections of animals for educational purposes. â&#x20AC;&#x201D;â&#x20AC;&#x201D;â&#x20AC;&#x201D; WHAT KINDS OF ANIMALS ARE KILLED? Both endangered species and other animals are killed at zoos. EAZA says five giraffes have been killed in European zoos since 2005. In addition to Marius, Copenhagen Zoo says it kills 20-30 antelopes, llamas, goats and other animals yearly. The Jyllands Park Zoo in Denmark said it may have to kill another giraffe soon for similar reasons as in Mariusâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; case. But a spokesman for Jack Hanna, emeritus director of the Columbus Zoo, said Friday that Hanna has raised more than $100,000 in pledges to save that giraffe. Aalborg Zoo in Denmark kills up to 15 animals a year, including red river hogs, antelopes and capybaras, while Skansen Zoo in Stockholm says it euthanized one bear and one Eurasian lynx last year and Helsinki Zoo killed one Alpine ibex. Some zoos also raise pigs, goats and cattle to feed their carnivores. â&#x20AC;&#x201D;â&#x20AC;&#x201D;â&#x20AC;&#x201D; WHAT DO ZOOS DO TO AVOID KILLING ANIMALS? When animals reproduce, most zoos first try to find another one in their network they can send the offspring to. A German zoo this week said it would send a monkey to the Czech Republic because heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s produced so many offspring that he would soon start having children with his own relatives. Zoos generally avoid selling the animals on the open market, fearing they will end up in poor conditions. Some European zoos and most zoos in the U.S. choose to use contraceptives or sterilization or separate males and females to avoid breeding more animals than they can house.

shape of its paw prints, and many believe it is somehow injured, which could explain why it overcame its natural fear of humans. While most tigers flee at any sign of people, humans are also much easier prey: slower than deer, weaker than buffalo and with soft skin that is easy to bite through.

Some believe the tiger now prefers to eat human flesh. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is because of taste

that she is killing now â&#x20AC;&#x201D; because of taste only,â&#x20AC;? said Singh, the forestry official. Others, though, doubt tigers develop a taste for people. The hunters, for instance, believe she probably has a problem with her mouth, perhaps an infected tooth, and has an easier time eating human flesh. It is also unclear how many kills she has made. Ten people have been killed by tigers in western Uttar

Pradesh state since Dec. 29. But most forestry officials and hunters believe the female is not responsible for the last death, when a day laborer was attacked Feb. 9 on the edges of Corbett park. While this part of India has grown somewhat wealthier in recent years, with mud homes being torn down and replaced with brick buildings, it remains deeply poor.

Diao Yinan’s ‘Black Coal, Thin Ice’ wins in Berlin BERLIN (AP) — Director Diao Yinan’s “Black Coal, Thin Ice,” a detective thriller set in northern China, won the Berlin International Film Festival’s main Golden Bear prize on Saturday. The movie also picked up the best actor award, which went to Liao Fan. DREAMS COME TRUE “Black Coal, Thin Ice,” Diao’s third feature film, stars Liao as a former policeman turned detective investigating a mysterious series of killings in a gritty industrial region that started when he was an officer. He is drawn to a mysterious woman who appears to be connected to the victims. “It’s really hard to believe that this dream has come true — a dream that I’ve had for such a long time and that didn’t come true for such a long time,” Diao said as he accepted the Golden

ABSENT WES Wes Anderson’s “The Grand Budapest Hotel,” a caper set in a fictional spa town in pre-World War II Europe with a strong ensemble cast including Ralph Fiennes, Bill Murray and Edward Norton, won the jury grand prize, which comes with a runner-up Silver Bear. Anderson presented the movie when it opened the festival Feb. 6, but couldn’t make it to Saturday’s award ceremony — so festival director Dieter Kosslick picked

LINKLATER’S LABOR American filmmaker Richard Linklater took the best director honor for “Boyhood.” Made over 12 years, it follows a boy — played by Ellar Coltrane — from first grade to college, watching him grow up as his divorced parents (Patricia Arquette and

Ethan Hawke) chart their course through parenthood and relationships. Linklater said he was accepting the award “on behalf of the over 400 people who worked on my movie all these years, cast and crew.” “It says best director, but I’ll think of it as best ensemble,” he said. JAPANESE MAESTRO Japan’s Haru Kuroki was named best actress for her part in “The Little House,” from veteran director Yoji Yamada, a film about a covert love af fair in Japan set against the backdrop of World War II. Kuroki said she wasn’t expecting the honor — “it’s only because director Yamada has made such a wonderful film that I’m able to stand up here this evening.” OTHER HONORS Diao’s winning entry was one

of three Chinese films in the 20movie competition this year. Another Chinese entry, director Lou Ye’s “Blind Massage” — an adaptation of a popular novel that’s set largely in a massage center run by the blind — won the festival’s outstanding artistic contribution prize for its cinematography. Ger man director Dietrich Brueggemann’s “Stations of the Cross,” a tragic tale of a teenage girl in an ultraconservative Catholic community striving for spiritual perfection, was honored for the best script. And the festival’s Alfred Bauer prize for innovation went to 91-year-old French director Alain Resnais’ “Life of Riley,” an adaptation of a play by British playwright Alan Ayckbourn. An eight-member jury under “Brokeback Mountain” producer James Schamus chose the winners.
