China linked to cyberattacks, US to respond WASHINGTON (AP) — As public evidence mounts that the Chinese military is responsible for stealing massive amounts of U.S. government data and corporate trade secrets, the Obama administration is eyeing fines and other trade actions it may take against Beijing or any other country guilty of cyberespionage.



According to officials familiar with the plans, the White House will lay out a new report Wednesday that suggests initial, more-

aggressive steps the U.S. would take in response to what top authorities say has been an unrelenting campaign of cyberstealing linked to the Chinese government. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publicly about the threatened action. The White House plans come after a Virginia-based cybersecurity firm released a torrent of details Monday that tied a secret Chinese military unit in Shanghai to

years of cyberattacks against U.S. companies. After analyzing breaches that compromised more than 140 companies, Mandiant has concluded that they can be linked to the People’s Liberation Army’s Unit 61398.

Military experts believe the unit is part of the People’s Liberation Army’s cyber-command, which is under the direct authority of the General Staff Department, China’s version of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. As

such, its activities would be likely to be authorized at the highest levels of China’s military.

The release of Mandiant’s report, complete with details on three of the alleged hackers and photographs of one of the military unit’s buildings in Shanghai, makes public what U.S. authorities have said less publicly for years. But it also increases the pressure on the U.S. to take more forceful action against the Chinese for what experts say has been years

The state Senate Public Affairs Committee voted 53 Tuesday to pass a bill that would raise the state’s minimum wage from $7.50 to $8.50. Senate Bill 416, sponsored by Sen. Richard Martinez, D-Espanola, would raise minimum wage effective Jan. 1 of next year. Martinez said he knows people who are struggling under the current wage and an increase to $8.50 would be “just a start.” “These people can’t survive. They're not making it,” he said. “I think this is the moral thing to do.” Sen. William Soules, DLas Cruces, who spoke in support of the bill, said research indicates increases in minimum wage eventually benefit the economy as a whole because the money would be spent

NM minimum wage inflation Panel OKs budget, spending increase indexing blocked in panel SANTA FE (AP) — A proposal to increase New Mexico’s minimum wage for inflation stalled Tuesday after a House committee’s Democratic leader opposed the measure. An effort to send the measure to the 70-member House failed on a 6-5 vote in the Voters and Elections Committee. The measure remains alive and can be reconsidered later, but it’s stuck unless votes change on the panel. The state’s $7.50 an hour minimum wage has been in effect since 2009. A proposed constitutional amendment would allow voters to decide whether to require automatic cost-of-living increases in the wage rate. The proposal by Rep. Miguel Garcia, D-Albuquerque, would provide for increases of up to 4 percent a year to

match inflation, but it wouldn’t allow the wage to drop if the cost-of-living declined. Business groups opposed the measure, warning that it could force employers to cut jobs. “Business owners are trying to keep their doors open,” said Matthew Gonzales of the Association of Commerce and Industry of New Mexico. Supporters said the change is needed to prevent workers from losing buying power to inflation, and they contended it could help the state’s economy. “Putting money into the pockets of low-income workers is almost the single best thing we can do to help spur economic growth,” said Carter Bundy of the

Panel buries bill on social promotion


See WAGE, Page A6

SANTA FE (AP) — State workers and educators will receive a 1 percent pay raise next year under a nearly $5.9 billion budget proposal that’s heading to the House for consideration later this week. The measure provides for a state spending increase of $239 million, or 4.2 percent, to finance education and government programs — from prisons and courts to health care — in the fiscal year starting in July. The Appropriations and Finance Committee approved the budget Tuesday with only three Democrats — current and retired school workers — opposing the measure because of concerns about proposed education spending. Republicans on the committee supported the bill, which calls for spending about $7 million more than GOP Gov. Susana Martinez had recommended to lawmakers. The governor said she was pleased the budget included money for some of her education initiatives but cauSee BUDGET, Page A6

An American design

ALBUQUERQUE (AP) — Majority Democrats in the New Mexico House are scuttling education legislation that’s a priority for Gov. Susana Martinez.

A party-line vote Monday by the House Education Committee tabled a bill to provide reading remediation and hold back most third-graders who aren’t proficient in reading. The Albuquerque Journal reports that the bill sponsored by Democratic Rep. Mary Helen Garcia is intended to halt social promotion.

Social promotion is a practice in which students are promoted to higher grades even if they’re not doing well enough academically.

Democratic Rep. Mimi Stewart of Albuquerque says the bill amounts to an unfunded mandate for public schools because the proposed funding wouldn’t be enough.

President tries to keep immigration on track

WASHINGTON (AP) — The White House on Tuesday sought to keep delicate immigration negotiations on track, as a key Republican senator distanced himself further from a draft bill President Barack Obama’s aides are readying in case congressional talks crumble. Florida Republican Sen. Marco Rubio’s office said Obama’s plan “injected additional partisanship into an already dif ficult process.” The White House, following the weekend leak of its draft legislation, insisted the president wants the bipartisan Senate group Rubio is a member of to put forward its own bill instead. Obama spoke with Rubio on Tuesday to reiterate his commitment to the Senate process and to make clear that he had his own legislation ready, the White House said. The president also called Republicans Sens. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina and John McCain of Arizona, two other GOP lawmakers involved in the immigration negotiations. “It is, by far, the president’s preference that the Senate process move for-

ward, that the bipartisan group of eight have success, and that they produce a bill that wins the support of Democrats and Republicans in Senate,” White House spokesman Jay Carney said. Senate aides said privately Tuesday that bipartisan negotiations are in a good place and they did not feel as though the disclosure of details in Obama’s draft bill would disrupt their process. In fact, Obama’s backup bill could end up spurring GOP lawmakers to rally behind a congressional plan with many similarities rather than support legislation attached to the president. While they differ on some key details, both sides are contemplating legislation that would provide a pathway to citizenship for most of the 11 million illegal immigrants already in the U.S., tighten border security, crack down on businesses that employ illegal workers and strengthen the legal immigration system. Rubio, a rising Republican star and favorite of his party’s conservative wing, has particular incentive to publicly disavow Obama’s proposals.

No urgency to avoid automatic spending cuts WASHINGTON (AP) — Ten days before a new deadline for broad, automatic government spending cuts, the sense of urgency that surrounded other recent fiscal crises is absent. Government agencies are preparing to absorb an $85 billion hit to their budgets, and politicians, at least for now, seem willing to accept the consequences. President Barack Obama, back from a Florida golfing weekend, warned Tuesday that “people will lose their jobs” if Congress doesn’t act. But lawmakers weren’t in session to hear his appeal, and they aren’t coming back to work until next week. Still dividing the two sides are sharp differences over whether tax increases, which Obama wants and Republicans oppose, should be part of a budget deal. Obama cautioned that if the immediate spending cuts — known as sequestration — occur, the full range of government will feel the effects. Among those he listed: furloughed FBI agents, reductions in spending for communities to pay police, firefighters and teachers, and decreased ability to respond to threats around the world. “So far at least, the ideas that the Republicans have proposed ask nothing of the wealthiest Americans or the biggest corporations,” Obama said at a White House event against a backdrop of firefighters and other emergency personnel. “So the burden is all on the first responders, or seniors or middle class families.” Aides say Obama is ready to take his case more directly to the public in an effort to pressure Republicans, either by traveling to vulnerable states or, as the White House often does, through local media interviews. They say neither Obama nor White House officials are now engaged in direct negotiations with Republican leaders. The spending cuts, however, aren’t perceived to be as calamitous as the threatened results of recent fights over the nation’s borrowing authority and the “fiscal cliff” that would have cut spending and increased tax rates on all Americans paying income taxes. Failure to raise the debt ceiling would have left the government with no money to spend on myriad programs and could have precipitated an unprecedented default. The fiscal cliff had the potential of setting back the economic recovery. In fact, many Republicans now see the automatic cuts in spending as the only way to tackle the federal deficit. Some liberals won’t balk either because they want cuts in Pentagon spending. And many Democrats believe the cuts will have to materialize before Republicans agree to some increase in taxes. “Some Democrats want it because of the defense cuts, and Republicans want it because they want to do anything to cut domestic spending,” said Brendan Daly, a former top aide to Rep. Nancy Pelosi, the former House speaker and now Democratic leader. “And politically, it’s difficult to oppose because the impact won’t be so severe right away.”

Richardson Express speeds along once again SANTA FE — What’s Bill Richardson doing these days? The answer is lots. And recently it is the sort of thing that gets you in the Washington Post and on weekend talk shows. Last month Richardson took another trip to North Korea. I’m not sure what the link is between New Mexico and North Korea. Richardson has taken several trips there. A top North Korean delegation was Richardson’s first visitors when he took office Jan. 1, 2003. The North Koreans arrived on the Jan. 6, as I remember. Former Gov. Dave Cargo was a good friend of the North Koreans, too. After his two, two-year terms, he says he made several private visits to North Korea. I’m not sure we ever knew exactly why but the first time Richardson was dispatched to Korea, Gov. Cargo offered to tag along and introduce him around. Maybe the North Koreans are interested in New Mexico because




of our nuclear history. Richardson says when he asked them what sights he would like to see, they pointed toward Los Alamos. Maybe they were scouting out the entire area so that they could familiarize future spies. That reportedly is what the Russians have long done. Back in Richardson’s congressional days, he started traveling to rogue countries as a sort of special envoy with somewhat informal White House approval. This time, the White House did not approve. But Richardson countered that this time he was traveling as a private citizen.

Roswell Daily Record

Richardson was heading a delegation composed mostly of top executives from Google. The North Koreans are very interested in high-tech communication devices. And Google is interested in selling them. Richardson also wanted to see what he could do about freeing an American who has been held for several months, He doesn’t seem to have accomplished anything on that count — probably because he was traveling as a private citizen and had nothing to bargain with. But Richardson came back with a message of hope that the new North Korean dictator is interested in moving along from nuclear and missile development to economic development. Richardson felt so confident about the message he received from government officials near the top that he came home and wrote an op-ed piece in the Washington Post. At just about the same time North Korea successfully fired a

missile it claimed was capable of reaching the United States. The poor timing made Richardson a hot commodity on talk shows beginning last Saturday. Richardson still thinks this would be a good time for top U.S. or U.N. officials to initiate some form of communication with the new dictator, himself. North Korea now has proved it can make a nuclear device and can fire a missile a long way. The next thing it needs to start developing economically is to get the many sanctions against itself lifted. It is possible for the United States to get along with communist countries. We don’t get along well with Cuba. China practically owns us. It can’t let anything bad happen to us that would make all those U.S. Treasury notes it owns worthless. Vietnam is proud of its good relations with our country despite the “American War” as it calls it. And that according to the people

in Vietnam we visited last fall is the total of communist countries left in the world. And what else has Bill Richardson been doing lately other than appearing in major newspapers and on national TV? He has an international relations firm of his own. He serves on volunteer boards of many other international relations agencies. He serves on boards of many profit-making firms pulling in lots of bucks and stock shares. And he is the featured speaker at many high-profile conferences and at many top universities. Richardson didn’t start out particularly fast as an ex-governor. His website was rather bare for a while. But once he got going, it has been the typical Richardson Express charging down the track again. (Write to Jay Miller at 3 La Tusa, Santa Fe, NM 87505; by fax at 984-0982; or by e-mail at

Medical device tax merits repeal

For those of us who value individual liberty, bipartisanship can often call to mind the definition of democracy as “two wolves and a sheep voting over what to have for dinner.” Occasionally, however, agreement between the two major parties comes in reaction to an idea so bad that its odiousness transcends partisan ideologies. Such is the case with Obamacare’s medical device tax, which came into effect at the beginning of the year. Under the terms of the Affordable Care Act, a 2.3 percent excise tax is applied to the sales of medical devices, a category that covers everything from tongue depressors to heart valves to pacemakers. Over the course of 10 years, the tax is expected to generate nearly $30 billion in revenue for the federal government. As in all cases of taxation, however, the operative question is: at what cost? The answer is twofold: jobs and innovation. Even in its early days, the tax has already begun thinning the ranks of employees in the medical device industry. Boston Scientific, facing an estimated $75 million in increased taxes, has announced that it plans to hand pink slips this year to as many as 1,000 workers. Stryker, another medical technology firm, announced in November that it would lay off 1,170 employees as a result of the tax. According to the Advanced Medical Technology Association, the levy could end up costing as many as 43,000 American jobs. Then there’s the cost to innovation. It’s salient that the tax is applied to revenue and not to profits. Because bringing medical devices to market is often intensive in terms of both capital and time, it can take years for the products to become profitable. The firm Abiomed, for instance, took 30 years to turn a profit on its heart pumps. Had the device tax been in place the past fiscal year, the company would still be in the red. When profits shrink, investors flee. When investors flee, the net result is fewer medical innovations. When there are fewer medical innovations, human suffering is gratuitously expanded. Thankfully, bipartisan alliances have formed in both the House and the Senate to repeal this destructive measure. While we wish this consensus had been formed prior to the law’s passage, we’re happy to embrace the penitent lawmakers who voted for Obamacare but now want to see the tax eliminated. Passage is far from guaranteed. Even if sufficient support can be found in Congress, President Barack Obama has already made clear that he’s standing by the tax. Given the economic, medical and technological costs of this folly, the president ought to change his mind. If he doesn’t, however, members of Congress should pass repeal and dare him to veto it. If, at that point, the president’s obstinacy endures, we look forward to his explanation for why a tax that kills jobs, retards progress and imperils patients merits his loyalty.

DEAR DOCTOR K: I have terrible pain from sciatica. Will epidural injections help? DEAR READER: I wish I had a definite and non-controversial answer. But as with so many areas of medicine, not every study of that question comes up with the same answer. Some say “yes” and some say “no” — for the average patient in the study. Sciatica is a persistent aching or burning pain felt along the sciatic nerve. The two sciatic nerves are the longest nerves in the body. They run from the lower back down through the buttocks and into each of the lower legs. The pain of sciatica can be severe. It can go away on its own, but for many people, sciatica is a chronic condition that keeps coming back.

The double threats of Cruz and Rubio

Just as Lenin’s body remains on public display in Russia, because one never knows when he might be useful to rally the masses, so, too, does the ghost (but thankfully not the body) of the late Joseph McCarthy, RWis., remain a useful symbol for Democrats in Washington. Sens. Barbara Boxer, D-Calif., and Claire McCaskill, D-Mo., are the latest to summon McCarthy’s ghost. After Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, asked defense secretary nominee Chuck Hagel whether he had been compensated by foreign interests hostile to the United States for speeches he made in which he seemed to favor their



Sciatica occurs when the sciatic nerve is pinched, irritated or injured. Inflammation, arthritis or a displaced disk in the lower spine are often to blame. (I’ve put an illustration showing the common causes of sciatica on my website, Doctors commonly treat sciatica with epidural injections into the spine. (The word “epidural”



aspirations, Boxer said of Cruz’s tenacious questioning, “It was really reminiscent of a different time and place, when you said, ‘I have here in my pocket a speech you made on such and such a date,’ and of course nothing was in the pocket. It was reminiscent of some bad times.”

refers to a particular area in the spine.) The injections contain a steroid, which reduces inflammation. The injections can also contain a long-lasting painkiller. The different causes of sciatica may be one reason that studies come to different conclusions. If a person’s sciatica is caused by inflammation rather than by arthritis, it may be more successfully treated by steroids — since the main effect of steroids is to reduce inflammation. The best kind of study for any treatment procedure, like an injection of medicines, is a randomized trial that includes a sham procedure. In this kind of study, every person gets an injection but only some people, chosen at random, get an injection of the real medicine; the rest get just a

McCarthy said “hand,” not “pocket,” but why quibble? That Democrats over the years have filibustered and smeared some people nominated by Republican presidents as “out of the mainstream,” or “extremists” (remember Robert Bork?) does not register on the media hypocrisy meter, but hypocrisy is sometimes bipartisan, so let’s move on to a more important topic. Why do Democrats fear the double threats of Ted Cruz and Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla.? A day after the State of the Union address, CNN ran a chyron that questioned whether Rubio’s reach for a bottle of water dur-

placebo injected or nothing injected (a sham procedure). One recent study found that there was only a short-term (onemonth) relief of symptoms for most patients who got any relief (and not all did). Another large recent study analyzed results from 23 previous studies comparing steroid injections to placebo (sham) injections. They found that for some people, an epidural injection gave good relief from leg pain (but not back pain) for several months. But for most people, the benefit was quite small. In addition, the pain relief did not last; after one year, there was no difference in pain between the sham and treatment groups. Given the severity of your sciatSee DR. K, Page A5

ing his pointed response to President Obama’s speech might have been a “career ender.” Democrats wish. After becoming the first Hispanic to win a Senate seat in Texas, Cruz told CBS News, “I think the values in the Hispanic community are fundamentally conservative, but you’ve got to have candidates that connect with that community in a real and genuine way and communicate that the values between the candidate and the community are one and the same.” This is what Cruz and Rubio

Funeral and burial benefits; plus, January ‘Taps’ Roswell Daily Record

Before listing this month’s “Taps,” this might be a good time to give a brief review of your veteran burial benefits. New Mexico has access to three veterans national cemeteries: Santa Fe, Fort Bayard and El Paso. Our main National Cemetery in Santa Fe is located at 501 N. Guadalupe St. Santa Fe, N.M., 87501; phone: 505-988-6400 or fax: 505-9886497. Also, contact your local funeral director for information on military burials. The Santa Fe National Cemetery Director, Mr. Cliff Shields, was previously the director at Fort Smith National Cemetery in Fort Smith, Ark., and acting director of the Fayetteville National Cemetery in Fayetteville, Ark. A veteran himself (Vietnam), he manages the hallowed resting place of more than 50,000 veterans and their significant others. Beside his duty as Cemetery Director, he travels throughout New Mexico working with all communities and the various community funeral directors, as well as working with the vari-


ous military honor guard teams throughout the State. He is a remarkable asset to the VA’s National Cemetery program. Veterans and members of the Armed Forces (Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps, Coast Guard) are eligible for burial in National Cemeteries as follows: 1. Any member of the Armed Forces of the United States who dies on active duty; 2. Any Veteran who was discharged under conditions other than dishonorable. With certain exceptions, service beginning after Sept. 7, 1980, as an enlisted person, and service after Oct. 16, 1981, as an officer, must be for a minimum of 24 continuous months or the full period for which the person was called to active duty (as in the case of a Reservist called to active duty for a limited duration). Questionable eligibility is referred for adjudication to a VA Regional Office; 3. Any citizen of the United States who, during any war in which the United States has or

In addition, you may have heard of the recent national outbreak of meningitis that was caused by epidural injections of steroids that were contaminated with fungus. This was a very unusual, but very serious, complication of the treatment.

are doing. They don’t use their heritage as a wedge to divide; rather they are using it as an avenue for communicating ideas to those who share that heritage — and to a wider audience — in ways that can improve everyone’s life. Cruz talks about “opportunity conservatism,” a phrase that contrasts with some Democrats’ apparent belief that the federal government should reign supreme. Cruz and Rubio are dangerous to statists because they speak of things that ignited the Reagan revolution, including the belief that the power to improve your life is in you, not in Washington. If those who have placed their faith and trust (and votes) in President Obama and the cult of big government awaken to the idea that only they have the power to change their circumstances, they won’t need politicians. Such an awakening will not bode well for Democrats whose political careers are often about bigger and more encroaching government and penalizing the successful with ever-higher taxes and burdensome government regulations.

allow Cruz and Rubio’s ideas to reach not only Hispanics, but the rest of America. Their ideas are more powerful than the weapons used by Democrats in their race and class warfare where people are seen not as individuals, but as voting blocs. That is why much of the media seems to focus on trivialities, rather than on what Rubio and Cruz are saying.

Some conservatives like to summon the ghost of Franklin Roosevelt whose programs could be said to have sparked the modern entitlement mentality. For liberals, it’s McCarthy. Both should be returned to the history books and removed from contemporary political debate. With McCarthy, it probably won’t happen because Cruz and Rubio threaten to damage the Democrats’ base, and they can’t have that. For some Democrats it’s more about political power and reliance on dysfunctional government, than about ideas that work.

The two chambers must agree on the same budget provisions before the bill heads to the governor. The House committee left $19 million available for budget increases by the Senate and to offset possible tax cuts sought by the governor and legislators. “I’ve always said my priorities are education reform and tax reform,” Martinez told reporters. “If we’re able to do that, we can certainly start looking at the 1 percent for the state employees.” Martinez did not propose pay raises for educators or gover nment workers in her budget recommendations.

She is also survived by her brothers, Freddy, T rini and Arthur and her sisters, Linda, Lena and Cora.

Public schools and higher education account for nearly three-fifths of the proposed budget. The budget allocates almost $2.6 billion for school operations, the Public Education Department and other educational programs. That’s an increase of 4.6 percent or $112 million over current spending. The state’s network of colleges and universities would receive $786 million, a 3.8 percent increase. About $932 million — a 3 percent increase — is for Medicaid, which provides health care for the poor and uninsured children. The measure provides an increase of more than $22 million for early childhood programs, including child care assistance, prekindergarten, early literacy, and extending the school year for students in kindergarten through third grade in schools serving highpoverty areas.

James Lewis, a cybersecurity expert at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, said that in the past year the White House has been taking a serious look at responding to China, adding that “this will be the year they will put more pressure on, even while realizing it will be hard for the Chinese to change. There’s not an onoff switch.” The Chinese government, meanwhile, has denied involvement in the

cyber-attacks tracked by Mandiant. Instead, the Foreign Ministry said that China, too, is a victim of hacking, some of it traced to the U.S. Foreign Ministry spokesman Hong Lei cited a report by an agency under the Ministry of Information Technology and Industry that said in 2012 alone that foreign hackers used viruses and other malicious software to seize control of 1,400 computers in China and 38,000 websites.

“Among the above attacks, those from the U.S. numbered the most,” Hong said at a daily media briefing, lodging the most specific allegations the Chinese government has made about foreign hacking. Cybersecurity experts say U.S. authorities do not conduct similar attacks or steal data from Chinese companies, but acknowledge that intelligence agencies routinely spy on other countries.

Committee member Sen. Jacob Candelaria, DAlbuquerque, voted in favor of the bill, but also expressed concerns as to how the state could enforce the raise, as some businesses in Albuquerque reportedly refuse

to honor the city’s voterapproved minimum wage increase. Committee member Sen. Gay Ker nan, RHobbs, voted against the bill. She has said before that she would oppose an increase, believing it

increases to avoid an almost certain veto by the governor. Still pending in the Legislature is a separate bill sponsored by Democratic lawmakers to raise the state’s hourly minimum wage to $8.50, which would provide an annual salary of $17,680 for a full-time job. That measure will need the approval of the Legislature — and the signature of the governor — to become law. Only three states — Washington, Oregon and Ver mont — have higher minimum wages and each of those adjust their rates for inflation. Washington

Unlike a bill, a proposed constitutional amendment doesn’t require the signature of Republican Gov. Susana Martinez, and Rep. Monica Youngblood, RAlbuquerque, said Democrats were using that approach for the proposed automatic minimum wage

EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Victor Oladipo shook off a sprained left ankle with a spectacular performance to lift topranked Indiana to a 72-68 win over No. 4 Michigan State on Tuesday night. Oladipo’s go-ahead putback, dunk and free throws in the final minute gave him 19 points to go along with nine rebounds, five steals and a block. Not bad for a guy who didn’t play after halftime of his previous game, just three days earlier, because of the injury. Hoosiers coach Tom Crean insisted that the junior shooting guard “wasn’t even close” to 100-percent healthy. “There’s no doubt his foot hurt,” Crean said. “That mind was right, and that was the biggest thing.” Indiana (24-3, 12-2 Big Ten) broke a first-place tie in the conference — with four games left in the regular season — and moved a step closer toward earning top seeding next month in the NCAA tournament. “It was a huge win for us,” Oladipo said. “We’ve come a long way.” The Hoosiers had lost 17 straight — since 1991 — on the road against the Spartans. “Most of those guys weren’t alive,” Crean said. “It didn’t affect them.” Michigan State (22-5, 113) blew opportunities at the line. Trailing by three with 3.7 seconds left, Harris was fouled on a 3-point attempt. He missed the first one — setting off sighs in the soldout arena — and after making the second, he deliberately missed the third. Indiana got the rebound — Oladipo grabbed it, of course — and he hit two free throws to seal the win. “We were right there,” Gary Harris said somberly. “And, we could’ve won.” Keith Appling had missed the front end of a one and one with a little more than a minute left. “I’d say I was more upset than surprised,” he said. Cody Zeller had 17 points — nearly doubling what he had in the previous matchup against Michigan State — while Jordan Hulls and Christian Watford scored 12 each for the Hoosiers. Oladipo and Zeller went over the 1,000-point mark of their careers in the game, joining Hulls and Watford in the club, to give the storied program four players with that many points on the same team for the first time. “They’ve got a lot of weapons,” Izzo said. “They’ve got a lot of experience.” Harris, Indiana’s Mr. Basketball last year, missed a layup in a crowded lane with 16 seconds left and finished with 19 points. Adreian Payne scored 17 and the rest of their teammates struggled offensively. Appling, Michigan State’s leading scorer, was held to six points on 1-of-8 shooting.

to the bench, the Rockets battled back and trailed 36-33 at the half. It was still a close game after David Sweet cut the Roswell lead to two with 3:23 left in the third when he converted an old-fashioned three-point play, but Roswell took control of the game over the next 5 1⁄2 minutes. Alex Olesinski split a pair from the charity stripe to push the lead to three and, less than a minute

later, Matthew Sedillo nailed a triple to make it 48-42. That is when Olguin went on a tear. Roswell forced a turnover after the Sedillo trey and, on the other end, Olguin made a pair of free throws to push the lead to eight.

Coyotes win regular-season district title ROSWELL 55, GODDARD 52


Think of a situation at work and the first time you had to deal with it. Whether it be dealing with an angry customer or fixing a problem within a computer network, if you haven’t had to deal with that issue before, you will most likely make some mistakes. Those mistakes are how you learn, though, and the more you deal with situations, the more you learn how to handle them. The same is true for high school basketball. The Roswell Lady Coyotes (18-7, 3-0 district) were a 3 away from a state title last year and have been to the state semifinals nine times in the past 10 years. The Coyotes have had plenty of opportunities to deal with pressure situations in big games. Goddard, on the other hand, has not played past the District 4-4A tournament in four years under coach Greg Torres and just won its first district game in those four

years last week against Artesia. Roswell’s experience and Goddard’s lack of big-game experience was the key in a 55-52 Coyote win on Tuesday at Ground Zero Gymnasium. The Rockets led 43-35 entering the final quarter, but Roswell scored five quick points — a triple from Priscilla Lucero and a deuce from Gali Sanchez — to cut the lead to three less than 40 seconds into the quarter. Goddard pushed the lead back to five 1:16 later with a pair of freebies from Alex Zumbrun and, two possessions later, Abbie Blach made a jumper to make it 47-40 with 4:50 left. After Roswell’s Myla Brown split a pair of free throws, Blach made a pull-up jumper to grow the Rocket lead to eight. The Coyotes didn’t get rattled, though, and Kristian Rodriguez and T if fanie Bolanos made back-to-back triples to cut the lead to 4947.

PRETORIA, South Africa (AP) — Oscar Pistorius wept Tuesday as his defense lawyer read the athlete’s account of how he shot his girlfriend to death on Valentine’s Day, claiming he had mistaken her for an intruder. Prosecutors, however, told a packed courtroom that the double-amputee known as the Blade Runner intentionally and mercilessly shot and killed 29year-old Reeva Steenkamp as she cowered inside a locked bathroom. Pistorius told the Pretoria Magistrate’s Court at a bail hearing he felt vulnerable in the presence of an intruder inside the bathroom because he did not have his prosthetic legs on, and fired into the bathroom door. The Valentine’s Day shooting in Pistorius’ home in Pretoria shocked South Africans and many around the world who idolized him for overcoming adversity to See PISTORIUS, Page B2

DHS secures top seed

The Dexter boys basketball team wrapped up the regular-season District 52A title, the No. 1 seed in the district tour nament and an automatic berth into the state tournament on Tuesday with a 73-40 drubbing of NMMI at the Cahoon Armory. The win was the 17th straight by Dexter and pushed the Demons’ overall record to 22-3 and their district record to a perfect 5-0. The Demons led by just four, 33-29, at the break, but broke the game open by winning the third quarter 19-9. Dexter then won the fourth 21-10 to seal the win. Kevin Bonner led the Demons with 17 points. Missael Barrientos poured in 12, and Kevin Paez and David Lopez each added 11. For NMMI (16-8, 3-2), Jemel Kaba led the way

with 15 points, while Blade Allen added 11.

become a sports champion, competing in the London Olympics last year in track besides being a Paralympian. Steenkamp was a model and law graduate who made her debut on a South African reality TV program that was broadcast on Saturday, two days after her death. In a major point of contention emerged even during Tuesday bail hearing, prosecutor Gerrie Nel said Pistorius took the time to put on his prostheses, walked seven meters (yards) from the bed to the enclosed toilet inside his bathroom and only then opened fire. Three of the bullets hit Steenkamp of the four that were fired into the door, Nel said. Pistorius said in his swor n statement that after opening fire, he realized that Steenkamp was not in his bed. “It filled me with horror and fear,” Pistorius said. The 26-yearold Olympian said he put on his prosthetic legs and tried to kick down the door before finally bashing it in with a cricket bat.

Bowers, Missouri rally, upend No. 5 Florida 63-60

COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) — Laurence Bowers had 17 points plus 10 rebounds and Missouri erased a 13-point deficit midway through the second half to rally past No. 5 Florida 63-60 on Tuesday night. Phil Pressey added 10 assists, seven points, six rebounds and three steals for Missouri (19-7, 8-5 SEC). The Tigers didn’t have Bowers a month ago in a 31-point blowout loss at Florida. Mike Rosario had 14 points for Florida (21-4, 11-2) but missed a 3-point try at the buzzer. The Gators had won 13 of 14 and led 49-36 with 10:51 left, then hurt them-

Inside, he said he found Steenkamp, slumped over. He said he lifted her bloodied body into his arms and tried to carry her downstairs to seek medical help. But by then, it was too late. “She died in my arms,” the athlete said. Nel charged Pistorius with premeditated murder and said the athlete opened fire after the couple engaged in a shouting match and she fled to the bathroom. “She couldn’t go anywhere. You can run nowhere,” Nel said. “It must have been horrific.” A conviction of premeditated murder carries a mandatory sentence of life in jail. Chief Magistrate Desmond Nair ruled that Pistorius must face the harshest bail requirements available in South African law. That means Pistorius’ lawyers must offer “exceptional” reasons for the athlete to be free before trial, besides simply giving up his two South African passports and posting a cash bond. Pistorius sobbed softly as his lawyer, Barry Roux, insisted the shooting was an accident and that there was no evidence to substantiate a murder charge.

selves at the foul line. Florida missed five straight free throws in the second half, three times on the front end of one-and-ones. The slump ended when Rosario hit the second of two with 5:10 to go for a 54-50 lead. The Gators made six of 12 foul shots overall. Missouri was 12 of 15. The Tigers improved to 15-0 at home this season. They are 30-1 the last two seasons under coach Frank Haith. Florida trailed by a point when Kenny Boynton missed a 3 with about eight seconds to go. Missouri’s Keion Bell came up with the ball after it was tipped around and made two free throws with 3.1 seconds left. Bowers’ jumper from the key put Missouri up for good at 61-60 with 1:15 to go. Pressey’s three-point play with 2:51 to go gave Missouri its first lead at 59-57. Scottie Wilkekin’s 3 put Florida back up with about 1 1⁄2 minutes to go. Pressey, whose ill-advised decisions have cost Missouri dearly on the road, didn’t take a shot in the first half while getting two assists and three turnovers. He made his first shot from the wing with just over 14 minutes to go. Pressey is just 1 for 23 on 3-pointers on the road in conference play, 10 for 26 at home. Two dazzling assists by Pressey, the second wrapping around a defender to set up Bowers’ dunk, capped a 12-0 run that cut Florida’s lead to 49-48 with 8:02 to go. Florida, averaging an SEC-leading 10 3pointers in conference play, was 4 for 6 the first 7 1⁄2 minutes while grabbing an 18-6 lead. The Gators made just one of their last 11 3-point attempts of the half, going scoreless the final 4:39 while Missouri ended with an 8-0 run to cut the deficit to 29-26.

“We submit it is not even murder,” he said. “There is no concession this is a murder.” Pistorius’ emotional outbursts again played a part in how the hearing progessed, as it did during an initial hearing Friday. At one point, Nair stopped the hearing after Pistorius wept as Roux read a portion of the athlete’s statement describing how Steenkamp bought him a Valentine’s Day present, but wouldn’t let him open it the night before. “Maintain your composure,” the magistrate said. “You need to apply your mind here.” Pistorius’ voice quivered when he answered: “Yes, my lordship.” Affidavits from friends of Pistorius and Steenkamp described the two as a charming, happy couple. The night before the killing, they said, Pistorius and Steenkamp had canceled separate plans in order to spend the night before Valentine’s Day together at his home, in a gated neighborhood. Outside the court, several dozen singing women protested against domestic violence and waved placards urging that Pistorius be refused bail. “Pistorius must rot in jail,” one placard

Roswell Daily Record said. As details emerged at the dramatic court hearing in the capital, Steenkamp’s body was being cremated Tuesday at a memorial service in the south-coast port city of Port Elizabeth. Six pallbearers carried her coffin, draped with a white cloth and covered in white flowers, into the church for the private service. South Africa has some of the world’s worst rates of violence against females and the highest rate in the world of women killed by an intimate partner, according to a study by the Medical Research Council. Professor Rachel Jewkes of the council said at least three women are killed by a partner every day in this country of 50 million. Steenkamp campaigned actively against domestic violence and had tweeted on Twitter that she planned to join a “Black Friday” protest by wearing black in honor of a 17-year -old girl who was gang-raped and mutilated two weeks ago. What “she stood for, and the abuse against women, unfortunately it’s gone right around and I think the Lord knows that statement is more powerful now,” her

Ravens, Flacco’s agent to meet in Indy

The Baltimore Ravens and Joe Flacco’s agent plan to meet this weekend in their first attempt to reach a new contract for the Super Bowl MVP. Joe Linta will be in Indianapolis at the NFL’s scouting combine for the first negotiations since August. After the team and Flacco couldn’t agree on an extension or a new deal last summer, Flacco played out the final year of his rookie contract — and struck it big. He led the Ravens to the AFC North title, then to playoff victories over Indianapolis, Denver and New England before beating San Francisco in the Super Bowl. Flacco had 11 touchdown passes and no interceptions in the postseason. Flacco made less than $6.76 million in 2012, and even if the Ravens franchise him, he would at least double that salary for next season. The going rate for a non-exclusive franchise quarterback is $14.6 million for one season. Other teams could make an offer to Flacco under that tag, with the Ravens having the right to match it — or let him go and receive two first-round draft picks in return. Should the Ravens put the exclusive franchise tag on Flacco, they would owe him $20.46 million for 2013 and he could not negotiate with other teams. But he’d only get a one-year deal. The highest-paid QBs in the NFL are Drew Brees of New Orleans at an average of $20 million a year, and Peyton Manning of Denver at $18 million. Linta points out that Flacco has as many NFL championships as each of them, and he is 28. “The onus is on them to make a move after this week,” Linta said during Super Bowl week. “I would guess they want to keep him. He’s 28, in the prime of his football life, has never missed a game. His resume on the table is outstanding and his future is even brighter.” The only other quarterback on Baltimore’s roster is inexperienced Tyrod

Taylor. Before the Super Bowl, owner Steve Bisciotti expressed confidence that Flacco would be the Ravens’ quarterback of the future. “We’ve never lost a great, great franchise player from the beginning,” Bisciotti said. “I’m just very comfortable that it will get done.” Flacco was a first-round draft pick in 2008 out of Delaware. He’s the only quarterback to win a playoff game in each of his first five seasons. He passed Eli Manning for most road victories in the postseason when Baltimore won the AFC championship at New England. In a league where passing records are set nearly every year and a franchise quarterback has become essential to winning a championship, it’s rare for someone to even reach the verge of free agency. And Flacco said himself after the Super Bowl victory that he expected to be back in Baltimore. “I’m pretty optimistic, but who knows?” he said. “This is a great organization, I love being here, great city. So I don’t anticipate any problems.”

uncle Mike Steenkamp, the family’s spokesman, said after her memorial. He said the family had planned a big get-together at Christmas but that had not been possible. “But we are here today as a family and the only one who’s missing is Reeva,” he said, breaking down and weeping. Pistorius has lost several valuable sponsorships estimated to be worth more than $1 million a year. On Tuesday, the athlete was ousted from a pro-gay campaign being launched in Cape Town, organizers said. In a video axed from the campaign, Pistorius says: “You don’t have to worry. You don’t have to change. Take a deep breath and remember, ‘It will get better.”’ And Clarins Group, which owns Thierry Mugler Perfumes, said in an email that “out of respect and compassion for the families involved in this tragedy, Thierry Mugler Perfumes have taken the decision to withdraw all of their advertising campaigns featuring Oscar Pistorius.”

We celebrate Presidents Day on Monday, Feb. 18. This holiday began as a tribute to President George Washington and was scheduled near his birthday, Feb. 22. In fact, the official name of the federal holiday is still Washingtonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Birthday. This week, The Mini Page celebrates Presidents Day by getting to know some of our former presidents a little bit better.

DEAR ABBY: My boyfriend, “Doug” (24), and I (22) have been in a long-distance relationship for a year, but we were friends for a couple of years before that. I had never had a serious relationship before and lacked experience. Doug has not only been in two other long-term relationships, but has had sex with more than 15 women. One of them is an amateur porn actress. I knew about this, but it didn’t bother me until recently. Doug had a party, and while he was drunk he told one of his buddies — in front of me — that he should

watch a certain porn film starring his ex-girlfriend. It made me feel awkward. The next day he apologized. Of course, having learned her name, I couldn’t help myself from searching for her on the Internet. Now I can’t stop comparing myself to her, and I feel intimidated and frustrated. I have been struggling with how to get over it. Doug has told me many times that he loves me and I believe him. But those stupid, drunken comments really knocked me down. How do I get over my boyfriend’s past? ECLIPSED BY A “STAR” IN NEW YORK DEAR ECLIPSED: A giant step in the right direction would be to quit comparing yourself to a porn actress. In his addled condition, your immature boyfriend couldn’t resist bragging to his buddies because he thought it would impress them with his prowess. If he had serious feelings about her, he would


still be with her, not in a relationship with you. That said, it would be in your best interest to find out if this woman really was a “girlfriend” or one of his one-night stands. If he is in a long-distance relationship with you and tends to be promiscuous, you should be more concerned about his judgment than how to get over his past.


DEAR ABBY: We have always purchased rather than leased our cars. One of them has 225,000 miles on the odometer and is running well. I have two friends who lease expensive foreign cars. Keeping the mileage down on their cars is important to them, especially when it comes time to return them at the end of the lease. Because of this, I find myself driving more often than I should. One friend attends a weekly meeting with me, and we’re supposed to take turns driving each other every other week. But somehow I

end up at the wheel more often. I’d hate to start writing down our outings, but I’m beginning to feel used. While I respect their decision to lease expensive new cars, it is not my responsibility to keep their expenses down. Both of these women are in a better financial position than I am, although we are all “comfortable.” Any ideas about how to approach this without seeming petty? It has been going on for a long while and is starting to bother me. DRIVEN TOO FAR IN LONG BEACH, CALIF.

DEAR DRIVEN TOO FAR: If you feel that you are being taken advantage of, then you probably are. I recommend you wean these ladies off your chauffeur services by being less available when they need a ride. And if you are asked why, remind them of your original agreement to share the driving duties 50-50.

Dear Heloise: With regard to LIVING LETTUCE (Heloise here: a previous column on the hydroponically grown lettuce that comes in a plastic container), I agree that it is so good. I took it one step further. Once I had used all the leaves, I told my husband that I was going to plant the roots outside with the rest of the lettuce I have grown. He laughed, but I laughed last when it grew again, and we had salad from that plant for a long time. I’ve had success four of the six times I’ve tried it! Waste not, want not!

Heloise ##### Dear Heloise: Those of us with children have always had the problem of multiple boxes of opened cereal. When I put my groceries in the pantry, I place the cereal boxes upside down. My household of five is allowed three open boxes at a time, which are stored right side up. When one is empty, then another can be turned right side up and opened. No more multiple boxes of stale cereal. Janice in Ohio

Microsoft’s Outlook looks to challenge other email services

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Microsoft is so confident it has the Internet’s best email service that it is about to spend at least $30 million to send its message across the U.S. The barrage began Tuesday when Microsoft’s twist on email,, escalated an assault on rival services from Google Inc., Yahoo Inc., AOL Inc. and a long list of Internet service providers. As part of the process, all users of Microsoft’s Hotmail and other email services operating under different domains such as will be automatically converted to by the summer, if they don’t voluntarily switch before then. All the old messages, contacts and settings in the old inboxes will be exported to Users will also be able to keep their old addresses. Email remains a key battleground, even at a time when more people are texting each other on phones. People still regularly check their inboxes, albeit increasingly on their smartphones. The recurring email habit provides Internet companies a way to keep people coming back to websites. It gives people a reason to log in during their visits so it’s easier for email providers to track their activities. Frequent visits and personal identification are two of the keys to selling ads, the main way most websites make money. That’s why Microsoft, Google and Yahoo have been retooling their email services in recent months. After keeping in a “preview” phase since July 31, Microsoft Corp. is ready to accept all comers. To welcome new users, Microsoft is financing what it believes to be the biggest marketing blitz in the history of email. will be featured in ads running on primetime TV, radio stations, websites, billboards and buses. Microsoft expects to spend somewhere between $30 million to $90 million on the Outlook campaign, which will run for at least three months. The Outlook ads will overlap with an anti-Gmail marketing campaign that Microsoft launched earlier this month. The “Scroogled” attacks depict Gmail as a snoopy service that scans the contents of messages to deliver ads related to topics being discussed. The Gmail ads are meant to be educational while the Outlook campaign is motivational, said Dharmesh Mehta,’s senior director. “We are trying to push people who have gotten lazy and comfortable with an email service that may not be all that great and help show them what email can really do for them,” said Mehta. By Microsoft’s own admission, Hotmail had lost the competitive edge that once made it the world’s largest email service. The lack of innovation left an opening for Google to exploit when it unveiled Gmail nearly nine years ago. Gmail is now the industry leader, although estimates on its popularity vary. Google says Gmail has more than 425 million accountholders, including those that only visit on smartphones and other mobile device. The latest data from research firm comScore, which doesn’t include mobile traffic, shows Gmail with 306 million worldwide users through December, up 21 percent from the previous year. Yahoo’s email ranked second with 293 million users, a 2 percent decrease from the previous year, followed by Hotmail at 267 million users, a 16 percent decline from the previous year.

Google lifts stock above $800 SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Google’s stock price topped $800 for the first time Tuesday amid renewed confidence in the company’s ability to reap higher profits from its dominance of Inter net search and prominence in the growing mobile market. The milestone comes more than five years after Google’s shares initially hit $700. Not long after breaking that barrier in October 2007, the economy collapsed into the worst recession since World War II and Google’s stock tumbled into a prolonged malaise that eventually led to a change in leadership. Besides enriching Google’s employees and other shareholders, the company’s resurgent stock is an implicit endorsement of cofounder Larry Page. He replaced his managerial mentor, Eric Schmidt, as CEO in April 2011. Google’s stock has risen by 36 percent since Page took over. By contrast, the benchmark Standard & Poor’s 500 index has climbed by 15 percent over the same stretch. Most of Google’s gains have occurred in the past seven months — a period that has overlapped with a sharp downturn in the stock price of rival Apple Inc. The iPhone maker’s market value has plunged by about $230 billion, or 35 percent, since late September. “All that Apple money had to go somewhere,” said BGC Financial

High court seems to favor Monsanto

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Supreme Court appeared likely Tuesday to side with Monsanto Co. in its claim that an Indiana farmer violated the company’s patents on soybean seeds that are resistant to its weed-killer. None of the justices in arguments at the high court seemed ready to endorse farmer Vernon Hugh Bowman’s argument that cheap soybeans he bought from a grain elevator are not covered by the Monsanto patents, even though most of them also were genetically modified to resist the company’s Roundup herbicide. Chief Justice John Roberts wondered “why in the world would anybody” invest time and money on seeds if it was so easy to evade patent protection. To protect its investment in their development, Monsanto has a policy that prohibits farmers from saving or reusing the seeds once the crop is grown. Farmers must buy new seeds every year.

The case is being closely watched by researchers and businesses holding patents on DNA molecules, nanotechnologies and other self-replicating technologies. The issue for the court is how far the patents held by the world’s largest seed company extend. More than 90 percent of American soybean far ms use Monsanto’s “Roundup Ready” seeds, which first came on the market in 1996. The 75-year -old Bowman bought the expensive seeds for his main crop of soybeans, but decided to look for something cheaper for a risky, lateseason soybean planting. He went to a grain elevator that held soybeans it typically sells for feed, milling and other uses, but not as seed. Bowman reasoned that most of those soybeans also would be resistant to weed killers, as they initially came from herbicide-resistant seeds too. He was right, and he repeated

the practice over eight years. In 2007, Monsanto sued and won an $84,456 judgment. Across the court’s conservative-liberal divide, justices expressed little sympathy for Bowman’s actions. Justice Stephen Breyer said Bowman could make many uses of the soybeans he bought from the grain elevator. “Feed it to the animals. Feed it your family or make tofu turkey,” Breyer said. But patent law makes it illegal for Bowman to plant them. “What it prohibits here is making a copy of the patented invention and that is what he did,” Breyer said. Mark Walters, Bowman’s Seattlebased lawyer, tried to focus the court on the claim that Monsanto has used patent law to bully farmers. “What they are asking for is for the farmer to assume all the risk of farming, but yet they can sit back and control how that product is used,” Walters said.

MLB: Fowler already a seasoned veteran at just 26

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) — Dexter Fowler is no longer the precocious prospect brimming with potential. At 26 and entering his fifth full season in the major leagues, the Colorado Rockies’ center fielder is a seasoned veteran. “I was walking in and I said ‘I feel old,”’ Fowler said after a conditioning session this week at the club’s spring training facilities. “I’ve been in this organization since ‘04, so it’s home.” The Rockies have staked their present and near future on the lanky Fowler after avoiding arbitration and signing him to a twoyear, $11.6 million contract earlier this month. Fowler has always shown

charged with her fifth foul while attempting to block a shot from Alexis Florez, a loss Torres said was big. “Whenever you have to play (the last 2:26) without the kid that got us going the whole game, and has taken us on her back, it is tough,” Torres said. Florez split the free throws to cut the lead to one, but Goddard seemed to reclaim momentum with 1:43 left after Hubbard nailed a trey that pushed the lead back to four. Battle-tested Brown made a layup 10 seconds later, though, to cut the lead to two and, after a Goddard turnover, senior

the potential to be an impact player but finally became a more ef fective and productive player in 2012 when he set career highs in hits, home runs, RBIs, batting average (.300) and on-base percentage (.389). The Rockies certainly feel good about their investment following his breakout season, and the feeling is mutual. He’s glad to be in purple and black for two more years with the organization he’s been with since 2004. “It’s awesome and it’s an awesome organization. This is home. This is what I know,” Fowler said. “I’m going to try to go out and build upon where I am now. I understand this is a

business, but at the same time, you’ve been here your whole career coming up in the minor leagues, and you see these guys and this is what you know.” New Rockies manager Walt Weiss has held individual meetings with his players since the outset of spring training and said of Fowler: “He’s a dynamic player. Skills across the board. Established himself as a very good player in this league last year. (We were) just talking about not settling and keep shooting for great because he’s got that kind of ability.” Weiss is trying to help his player take the next step. He brought in a guy who’s had success at the majorleague level as a leadof f

ence than they do, let’s not sugar -coat it,” he said. “We out-executed them late in the game, make no mistake about that. My hat goes off to Goddard, they played us real tough. It was as tough as they played us in a few years.” Brown led Roswell, which wrapped up the regular -season district title, the No. 1 seed in the district tournament and ear ned an automatic berth in the state tournament with the win, with 16 points, while Bolanos added 10. Goddard (11-15, 1-3 district) was led by Blach’s game-high 23 points. Hubbard chipped in with 15 points for the Rockets.

guard Victoria Meraz banked in a jumper to tie the game at 52. After a rushed shot by Goddard with about 30 seconds left, Bolanos penetrated and dished the ball off to Brown on the block. Brown was fouled on the shot attempt and calmly knocked in both freebies to give Roswell a 54-52 lead. Goddard turned the ball over on the ensuing inbounds and was forced to foul. Bolanos went 1 for 2 to push the lead to three and Goddard couldn’t get off a shot from beyond the arc on its next possession. Roswell coach Joe Carpenter said that his team’s experience was big down the stretch. “(Our experience helped) big time. We have a little bit more experi-

man, original Rockies player Eric Young, to work on base-stealing and bunting with Fowler. Young arrived Monday and got right down to business on a back field with Fowler and others. Weiss said Fowler’s height and long legs could be what prevents him from stealing more bases. After swiping 27 as a rookie in 2009, Fowler was down to 12 the last two seasons. “Maybe it’s a little bit tougher with a guy that is that long to accelerate to steal bases, but he’s shown he can steal bases,” Weiss said. “And we’re going to give him the freedom to do that. He’s got to get comfortable, get a feel for it, pick his spots. That’s the next level for him, that’s

but Olguin scored four points — two free throws and a layup — in the final 39 seconds to give the Coyotes a 54-45 lead heading into the final quarter. After a layup from Josh Wagner cut the lead to 54-47, Olguin took a pass from Olesinski and tur ned it into an easy deuce to push the lead back to nine. Cesar Nava ended the next Goddard possession with a steal and Roswell made the Rockets pay with another Olguin bucket. The Rockets made it 58-49 with a Sweet bunny, but another Olguin deuce and a three-

part of it.” Fowler got stronger and worked on his speed in the offseason. He also experienced a major life moment: marriage. The Fowlers went to Paris for their honeymoon and did some more traveling. There were also things going on around Fowler which he couldn’t control. Several reports said the Rockies were shopping him to other clubs for a potential trade, although their high asking price showed they weren’t really that motivated to move on without him. “You can’t take things too personally,” Fowler said. “The fortunate thing is that people want you and you have a job.” point play from Sedillo pushed the lead to 14 with 6:08 left. Roswell coach Britt Cooper said that Olguin played like an all-state player against the Rockets. “He just took it upon himself. He was getting open shots and getting rebounds,” he said. “He played like an all-state player tonight. We missed him in the first half. We had a good run going and they made their run when he went out with his second (foul).” The Rockets (11-15, 03) had one more run in them, going on a 15-7 run after the Sedillo threepoint play to cut the lead to five, but Roswell hit 5 of 6 from the charity stripe down the stretch to seal the win.

Notes: Young isn’t the only former Rockies great with the club in spring training. Aside from hitting coach Dante Bichette and special assistant Vinny Castilla, Weiss said he plans to bring former pitcher Pedro Astacio to camp for a couple of weeks. Astacio is one of the most successful pitchers in Rockies history. “I love that stuff. I think it has a lot of value,” Weiss said. “Bringing guys back that have been here that have a connection to the organization that have been successful, there’s nothing negative about that.” Young will be with the team for a couple of weeks and possibly come back before spring training is over.

Rocket coach Kevin Jones said that his team battled. “That is the deal, keeping that focus and keeping that intensity. If you have any letdowns against a team like Roswell, they are going to expose you,” he said. “They are good at that. You have to be solid and we were right there with them for most of the game. We battled and I was proud of the kids, but we just had some lapses. If we can just cut that stuf f out, we are right there.” Sedillo and Nava led Roswell with 18 points each, while Olguin scored 16, Wagner and Sweet led Goddard with 16 points apiece.
