Senate confirms Hagel, 58–41

Vol. 122, No. 50 75¢ Daily / $1.25 Sunday


WASHINGTON (AP) — A deeply divided Senate voted on Tuesday to confir m Republican Chuck Hagel to be the nation’s next defense secretary, handing President Barack Obama’s pick the top Pentagon job just days before billions of dollars in automatic, across-the-board budget cuts hit the military.

The state’s Senate Education Committee is scheduled to hear a bill at 8 a.m. today that would allow up to three school employees to carry a concealed handgun on school property.

State law prohibits anyone from carrying guns on school property, except police and security guards. Under SB 230, sponsored by Sen. Sue Wilson Beffort, R-Sandia Park, public schools would have the option to designate employees to be armed on school premises. The employees would need to have a valid concealed handgun license.

Obama rejects GOP spending cuts plan WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama brushed off a Republican plan Tuesday to give him flexibility to allocate $85 billion in looming spending cuts, wanting no part of a deal that would force him to choose between the bad and the terrible. Three days out and no closer to any agreement, both parties sought to saddle the other with the blame for the painful ramification of the across-the-board cuts set to kick in Friday. Obama accused Republicans of steadfastly refusing to compromise, while the top Senate Republican, Mitch McConnell, chided Obama’s effort to “fan the flames of catastrophe.” McConnell and other top Republicans were lining up behind a plan that wouldn’t replace the cuts but would give Obama’s agency heads, such as incoming Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel, greater discretion in distributing the cuts. The idea is that

House to take up anti-violence act

WASHINGTON (AP) — Congress appeared on a course to renew the expired Violence Against Women Act after House Republican leaders on Tuesday agreed to take up a version of the 1994 anti-domestic violence law that passed the Senate two weeks ago by a wide, bipartisan margin. The decision to allow a vote on the Senate bill, rather than insist on the House GOP’s more limited version, could help avoid a bitter partisan fight over an issue important to women at a time that Congress is already embroiled in an unbecoming political standof f over budgetary issues. The House Rules Committee decided that the House on Wednesday will take up the Senate bill. The House alternative will be offered as an amendment and, if that is defeated, the House will then vote to pass the Senate measure, sending it to President Barack Obama for his signature. The Senate bill expands the law, which expired in

2011, to better protect lesbians and gays, immigrants and Native American women. House Republicans introduced a more limited bill this week, setting off cries of protest from Democrats, the White House, women’s advocacy groups and some Republicans who said it was inadequate to meet the needs of anti-domestic abuse programs. House Democrats said Tuesday that no one in their caucus would support the Republican bill, meaning that the opposition of a small number of Republicans could spell its defeat. A similar scenario played out last year when the Senate passed a more ambitious bill by a wide, bipartisan margin and the House took a different course with a largely partisan bill. The year ended without a compromise and with Democrats making election-year claims that GOP actions on the bill exposed the party’s lack of commitment to women’s issues. See HOUSE, Page A2

flights to classrooms to meat inspections. The cuts would slash domestic and defense spending, leading to forced unpaid days off for hundreds of thousands of workers.

a Cabinet choice and former senator since 1989 when the Democratic-led Senate defeated newly elected President George H.W. Bush’s nomination of Republican John Tower to be defense secretary. In the course of the rancorous, seven-week nomination fight, Republicans, led by freshman Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas and Sen. Jim Inhofe of Oklahoma, insinuated that Hagel has

a cozy relationship with Iran and received payments for speeches from extreme or radical groups. Those comments drew a rebuke from Democrats and some Republicans. Hagel’s inconsistent perfor mance during some eight hours of testimony during his confirmation hearing last month undercut his cause. On Feb. 12, the Armed Services Committee

approved the nomination on a party-line vote of 1411. Two days later, a Democratic move to vote on the nomination fell a few votes short as Republicans insisted they needed more time to consider the pick. Hagel’s nomination also became entangled in Republican demands for more information about the deadly assault on the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya, last Sep-

requirements. That will give negotiators some breathing room to work on a deal.

compromise was a key disagreement about whether new tax revenue, by way of closing loopholes and deductions, should be included in any deal, as Obama has insisted.

Senate Democrats have prepared a measure that would forestall the automatic cuts through the end of the year, replacing them with longer -ter m cuts to the Pentagon and cash payments to farmers, and by installing a minimum 30 percent tax rate on income exceeding $1 million. But that plan is virtually certain to be toppled by a GOP-led filibuster vote later this

60 attend Watch meeting Audit questions $573K of spending by NM group

More than 60 members of Neighborhood Watch gathered to meet City Counselor Jason Perry, and Deputy Chiefs Brad McFadin and Philip Smith at Fulkerson Services, Thursday. The RPD Criminal Investigation Division’s Detective Albert Aldana joined the deputy chiefs to answer the questions of the community. The Watch meeting consisted of five Watch neighborhoods from the west side of Roswell. “It’s what I call the Third and Fourth Street Corridor, from Union west,” said Neighborhood Watch advisor Steve Wolfe. “It was very successful. The meeting gave the people the opportunity to voice their concer ns,” said


Richard Lucero of Neighborhood Watch and Alarm.

Lucero said they also discussed general safety and prevention, such as locking doors and being aware of one’s surroundings.

“The main purpose of our meetings, though, is to get neighbors together so they get to know each other. ... Safety begins at the neighborhood level,” Lucero said.

Neighborhood Watch has several programs in the works, including another multi-group meeting, a cookie exchange and the annual National Night Out, where every neighborhood hosts a barbecue and opens their hearths and their hot dogs, to the community.

The New Mexico Department of Transportation began road repairs to seal cracks in the pavement this week on Second Street.

Routes scheduled for repairs include U.S. 380, U.S. 70, U.S. 54, U.S. 82, U.S. 62/180, U.S. 60, N.M. 82, N.M. 128, and N.M. 48. Drivers may encounter flaggers where work is being performed or intermittent lane closures.

ALBUQUERQUE (AP) — A federal audit of grant spending has raised questions about more than $573,000 in costs and transfers made by a northern New Mexico tribal organization that had been awarded several grants by the Office on Violence Against Women.

Wells happened on Feb. 19, when the RFD was called to a series of three fires, two dumpster fires and a structure fire, in a 36-hour period. The house fire burned with such intensity that the fire department pulled back and concentrated on protecting adjacent buildings and allowed the blaze to burn itself out. Wells said he had not given a final ruling. “There’s a possibility that the fire may have been an accident, since the men working in the building had been using the fireplace for heat,” he said. He would not say if the house fire was an accident. A similar fire occurred in the 500 block of East Forest Street, Monday, when the Roswell Police Department received a report of a prowler. When officers arrived on the scene, they found a

The Violence Against Women Act is regarded as the foundation of efforts over the past two decades to make the country more aware of the serious nature of domestic violence and to take steps to both prevent violence and better prosecute those who assault their domestic partners. The law provides grants to states and local governments for transitional housing, hotlines, law enforcement training and legal assistance. The Senate bill explicitly extends more protections to lesbians and gays and immigrants and gives tribal authorities more power to prosecute non-Indians who assault Indians on reservations. It also has provisions regarding college

Northern Indian Pueblo Council had no process in place to effectively prevent some of the funding from being used for unapproved expenses.

The nonprofit council was awarded more than $4.1 million through six grants between 2005 and 2010. The payroll costs that were not allowed under the grants totaled more than $347,000, while training and travel costs added up to more smoldering shed that had water leaking out from under neath the door. The fire was extinguished when the pvc water pipes melted and the subsequent water leak put out the blaze. “None of the buildings have been occupied up until now, but there’s always a possibility that someone could be hurt in the future,” said Wells. He noted that in the coldest months, squatters may inhabit vacant buildings. Wells is asking people in the neighborhood to be alert and immediately report any suspicious activity to the police. In addition, he urges anyone who may have information to contact the RPD at 624-6770, fire investigators at 6243830 or Crime Stoppers at 888-594-TIPS (8477).

A major point of dispute was over the Indian courts. Native American women are assaulted at rates far higher than national averages, and more than half of cases involving non-Indians go unprosecuted because Indian courts do not have jurisdiction and federal prosecutors often do not have the resources to try cases on isolated reservations. Some Republicans contended that subjecting non-Indians to Indian courts was unconstitutional.

The council, in its response, said the payroll costs stemmed from differences between employee positions listed in its system and the positions defined in the grant proposals and budgets.

The addition will hopefully spark more interest with other national tenants, Cooper said. “When you get a national tenant like that in, hopefully you get some in our interior mall spaces,” Cooper said. “Our goal is to get more tenants for the mall.” The mall is currently 75 percent occupied. Ninety percent of those tenants are national chain stores. “We do also have some local tenants who are doing well,” Cooper said.

The two hope to hold a grand opening April 1. “We’re really excited,” Pardo said. “It’s moving a lot faster than we thought it was going to. Our arrangements have come out really pretty and unique.” Shoppers and retailers at the mall last week heard rumors about Marshalls’ plans to build in Roswell. Mall management couldn’t confirm details until this week. “We’ve known about it for quite some time and it was a secret that was hard to hold,” Cooper said. “We have announced it to a few groups who are excited for the job opportunities.

Lots of talk but little action at the state and federal levels

SANTA FE — If there is anything that can make the New Mexico Legislature look good, it is the follies going on in Washington, D.C. Both groups share one commonality. There’s a lot of talk but not much is going to get done. In Santa Fe, House Democrats can stop Republican Gov. Susana Martinez’s meager agenda. Senate Democrats also are the majority party, but some of those Democrats have joined with a united Republican Party and it appears that coalition is going to be able to stop anything Democrats want to get to the governor’s desk. To demonstrate that politics is equal opportunity, the situation in Washington is reversed but the partisanship is unchanged. A Republican House and a Democratic Senate that requires a 60 percent vote instead of 51 percent means little can be accomplished in that body. Congress came back to do a little work this week but will spend most of its time fighting. By Friday




it has to figure out how to avoid the big boulder it put in its road, called sequestering. They won’t let it happen because that cuts everything equally, which means too many pet projects get hurt. Congress will waltz around that boulder, somehow, only to run into the expiration of a continuing resolution that runs the government out of money. They already have artfully dodged a fiscal cliff. They won’t try completely shutting down government. Newt Gingrich tried doing that to President Bill Clinton and got badly burned. Furloughs are being discussed. New Mexico state employees know about those. Gov. Bill Richardson

imposed furloughs and ended up badly bruised. Gun control isn’t likely to see much action. People feel strongly about it but those feelings go both ways. Government buy backs see people bringing in boxes of guns and telling authorities they don’t want any money. They just want to get rid of them. On the other hand you hear just as many say the only way they will give up their gun is for someone to pry it out of their cold, dead hand. How do you get people with such differing beliefs to agree on anything? Bill Richardson is saying on national shows that he thinks the stars now are in alignment to allow a comprehensive immigration act to pass Congress. He reasons that with illegal immigration now going down instead of up, Americans are less fearful of them eventually taking over. And Republicans have determined that if they are going to

win any more national elections, they are going to have to start addressing Hispanic needs. Richardson thinks Congress can craft a plan to address a path to citizenship, border security, the DREAM Act and a guest worker plan. Gov. Susana Martinez also has a comprehensive immigration plan that she has voiced, but not often. She has let Florida’s U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio take the spotlight on immigration. Being from a border state Martinez is well positioned to take the lead on immigration if she wants some more time on the national stage. Back in 2007, when comprehensive immigration was last tried during the George W. Bush administration, Sen. John McCain took the lead and almost got it passed. Then when McCain decided to seriously run for president, he had to do an about face on immigration in order to win the GOP pri-

mary. His trademark saying became “Build the dang fence.” Currently McCain is concentrating his efforts on fighting President Obama’s nominees for top cabinet positions and doesn’t seem especially interested in immigration. But immigrations was the subject that got him in trouble at a town hall meeting during the most recent congressional recess, according to news coverage. And McCain sounded like the McCain of old defending the need for a comprehensive immigration solution. As those of you who are longtime readers know, McCain is one of my longtime heroes but there are few people who have disappointed me at times as much as he has. Guess he figures he has to do it. And it gives people in my business plenty material. (Write to Jay Miller at 3 La Tusa, Santa Fe, NM 87505; by fax at 984-0982; or by e-mail at

Cut corporate taxes

Henry Ford said, “Competition improves the breed.” Well, the benefits of competition extend to cities, counties, states and countries. Look at the brewing “tax war” to attract corporations and the jobs they create. Since 2008, Great Britain has cut its top corporate tax rate to 21 percent from 28 percent. The corporate tax is applied to companies’ income. As a result, according to the Financial Times, “Britain has leapt ahead of low-tax rivals such as Ireland, Luxembourg and Switzerland to become multinationals’ favorite tax regime, according to a poll that George Osborne hailed as a ‘remarkable turnaround’ in efforts to make the country more attractive to foreign investors.” Osborne is chancellor of the exchequer, the equivalent to the U.S. treasury secretary. The top U.S. corporate tax rate is 35 percent, one of the highest of the major industrial countries. Some other rates are: Canada, 16 percent to 31 percent (depending on the province); China, 25 percent; Germany, 29.8 percent; France, 33.3 percent; and Japan, 40.7 percent. Actually, the U.S. rate isn’t quite so high, Esmael Adibi told us; he’s the director of the A. Gary Anderson Center for Economic Research at Chapman University. Loopholes cut the effective U.S. rate to 15 percent to 18 percent. But other countries, including Britain, have their own loopholes. Different states also have different tax rates. In California, corporations pay a top combined income tax rate of 43.8 percent, more than double that of Great Britain. Among some other states, Nevada, Texas, Ohio and Tennessee have no state corporate tax; Florida’s is 5.5 percent; Arizona, 7 percent; New York, 7.1 percent; and Illinois, 9.5 percent. The top rate, even with loopholes, remains significant as an indicator of the tax burden. “On the fiscal front, there’s competition,” Adibi said. “Many countries have increased income tax rates. But they cut corporate tax rates to create jobs by attracting businesses. No doubt we need to reform tax rates.” He suggested lower rates paired with fewer loopholes. He added that corporate tax reform, by lowering tax rates, would bring corporate cash back to the United States. Otherwise, the cash remains overseas so the corporations can pay other countries’ lower rates. “If the cash comes here, it has to do something here,” such as create jobs. In the last election, both President Obama and challenger Mitt Romney promised corporate tax reform, including rate reductions and simplification. And Republicans in Congress pushed for reform during the recent “fiscal cliff” negotiations, although nothing happened. The president also called for reform in his State of the Union address. Unfortunately, he also has been pushing for an “offshoring tax” on corporations’ overseas profit to avoid other countries’ lower tax rates. Now would be a good time for Congress to cut the corporate tax rate, perhaps to the British rate of 21 percent, while eliminating many loopholes. America needs to get back in the game. Guest Editorial The Orange County Register DEAR DOCTOR K: I started drinking more during the holidays. It seemed natural, as there were so many parties and happy hours. But the holidays are long over, and I haven’t cut back. Could I have a problem? DEAR READER: You ask a difficult question. What constitutes “healthy” versus “harmful” drinking can vary quite a bit from person to person. So where is the line between social drinking and problem drinking? Does drinking every day or drinking a certain amount indicate a problem? Here’s the bottom line: If your pattern of drinking creates difficulty for you personally, socially or at work, then your drinking is likely harmful to your health. Having said that, I’ve known people who drink throughout the day and have liver and other problems because of it. Yet they would tell me that drinking wasn’t interfering with their family or work life at

Gov. Scott to voters: I changed my mind

ORLANDO, Fla. — Gov. Rick Scott, R-Fla., was one of those tea party stars whom voters believed had the courage of his convictions when he promised, as recently as last summer, to block The Affordable Care Act in his state. But last week, writes the Orlando Sentinel, “Scott made an abrupt about-face, embracing a three-year expansion of Medicaid coverage for about 1 million lowincome Floridians that will be paid for by the health care law.” Scott said, “I think this is a common-sense solution to dealing with this for the next



three years where it will give us the time to think about how we can improve the system.” Sounding like a Democrat, he added that the state is obligated to help “the poorest and weakest among us.” No, governor, charities and religious bodies are obligated to help the weak and poor. State

all. Maybe that’s the way it seemed to them, but their drinking was on its way to making them sufficiently sick that it later seriously interfered with their lives. If you’re not sure if you might have a drinking problem, answer a few questions about your drinking habits. Several screening tests can help deter mine whether you might have a drinking prob-

and federal governments have no such obligation. To claim they do empowers bureaucrats and politicians who are having a difficult enough time fulfilling their constitutional responsibilities. It also undermines the work ethic. After (borrowed) federal money runs out in three years, Florida will be expected to kick in some cash and carry on with the funding. Scott says his commitment is only for those three years, but as Ronald Reagan once wryly observed, “... a government bureau is the nearest thing to eternal life we’ll ever see on this earth!”

lem. (I’ve put two of the tests, the CAGE questionnaire and the AUDIT, on my website, Alcohol use occurs along a spectrum. Alcohol dependence is the most severe type of alcohol misuse. It is marked by complete loss of control over drinking behavior. You’re preoccupied with drinking and have a strong desire to drink. You start to tolerate alcohol; you don’t get tipsy as easily. You start to feel a little nervous and shaky several hours after your last drink, and you learn that another drink can quiet the shakes. Alcohol abuse is a milder problem. You don’t have the same compulsion or physical need to drink as those who are dependent on alcohol. But you do drink excessively — and if you keep drinking excessively, you are very likely to go on to alcohol dependence. Even if you aren’t suffering from alcohol

Scott, whose favorability rating was 36 percent in a December Quinnipiac University poll, is clearly looking at his vulnerability in next year’s election. Apparently, he thinks sounding more like a Democrat will convince voters to give him another term in office. Perhaps he thinks the tea party votes he is likely to lose will be made up for with purchased votes from those who will line up at the federal ATM. Scott is a for mer health care executive.

dependence or abuse, your drinking still could be cause for concern. I’ve known people who just “loosen up” enough that they start to say things they may not mean, and surely should not say — to their spouses, friends, co-workers or bosses. Their drinking still is hazardous to their home and work life, and to family and friends. It also puts them at risk for developing more serious problems with alcohol down the road. The fact that you were concer ned enough about your drinking to ask me about it is a red flag. Talk to your doctor about your alcohol use. If you do have a problem, you can work with your doctor to determine the best treatment options for you. (Dr. Komaroff is a physician and professor at Harvard Medical School.

Local veterans cemetery encounters snag LOCAL

Roswell Daily Record

In the quest to create a veterans cemetery here in Roswell, a difference in the cemetery’s design between the Mayor and city planners versus the land donor’ s project overseer has arisen. In brief, the Mayor and city engineer want to build the cemetery according to Veterans National Cemetery standards, in hopes of one day having either the State or the Federal government come in and take over the cemetery activities (as well as costs and upkeep) as part of the national cemeteries network. Those who have worked on this concept for several years have been told repeatedly that there is no way a National Veterans Cemetery will be approved in our area. Roswell seems to have this permanent designation of being ineligible for VA support/activities (contract medical services, cemeteries, etc.). The Mayor seems to have been given a different impression when he and the city engineer visited the VA cemetery director in Santa Fe. To add a personal comment, I have been told several times (five separate groups working on this same

concept), “Roswell/Chaves County will never be eligible for a State or Federal National Veterans Cemetery”. The State as well has said the same thing on several occasions. Obviously, there is a major difference in perception or understanding of information.

There are several thousand veterans in southeastern New Mexico who would be able to receive a burial free of charge for himself/herself and qualifying spouse. With the donation of land adjacent to South Park Cemetery, and expressed interest by several individuals and commercial entities to contribute funds or services to the creation of our Veterans Cemetery, veterans are very excited about the possibilities.

Bert Ethridge, Ray Willis and Harry McGraw have been working feverishly on getting this task accomplished. Smith Engineering Company and other builders/contractors in the area have committed to performing the design and creation of our local cemetery. Services have been offered free of charge for design and construction. Private donors

Wednesday, February 27, 2013



have committed to gifted funding as soon as the plans have been approved by the City and an estimated opening date established. However, this misunderstanding between the City and the donor’s representative has temporarily frozen things in place. The Mayor and City Engineer visited Mr. Cliff Shields, Director of the Veterans’ National Cemetery in Santa Fe, to gain insight and information on the best way to create our local veterans cemetery. It was their understanding that Mr. Shields explained how the Roswell site could become a Veterans’ National Cemetery, with the maintenance and associative costs provided by the Federal Government. It was their understanding that if the cemetery were

constructed, up front, the same way an existing National Cemetery is constructed, one day the Federal or State government would qualify it as an acceptable Veterans National Cemetery. The Mayor and City Engineer then met with an engineering expert in Albuquerque, who has designed and created approved cemeteries all over the country. Personal note: construction was on approved/eligible DoD/VA sites. This engineer said he could draw up all of the plat diagrams, necessary easements and plan for/provide burial ready vaults and covers as a turnkey project, ready for government certification. Again, this would be attempted given the various government authorities have said they would not approve a Veterans National Cemetery in our area, period. Mr. Eldridge pointed out in a recent City Hall meeting that this whole concept is different from the original plans discussed with the City, and would cost the City possibly millions of dollars (to have all of the vaults and vault covers in place prior to opening,


and to purchase new plat diagrams which have already been provided free of charge by Smith engineering). Originally, the landowner’ s representative was to be responsible for obtaining benevolent/gifted funding for creating our cemetery. The City, in turn, would provide the care and upkeep of the completed site (as they currently do for South Park). Bert also commented Smith engineering appears to have been “dismissed” by the City after they submitted the completed plats. Additionally, we would be going out of town (Albuquerque engineers) to purchase site creation services instead of spending our money locally. Mr. Eldridge stated he did not see where the City will be able to come up with the significantly increased cost for completing our cemetery project (which could be in the millions). The Mayor disagreed that the City’s plan would cost that much. A meeting between the donor’s representatives and the City will take place today at City Hall. God bless and say a little prayer.

lions lobbying to influence health care reform legislation, including Medicaid. They also are the largest employer in many states. Should Scott lose next year’s election, taking federal Medicaid money won’t hurt his chances of a highpaying position in his former profession. The Orlando Sentinel examined Scott’s rapid tur naround on other issues dear to conservative hearts. It said he “... has barely looked like the same guy who ran for governor in 2010” and cited examples. After large initial budget cuts, Scott “... proposed the largest budget in state history and said his top priority was a $2,500 raise for teachers, whom he infuriated during his first year in office by passing a meritpay law while cutting education spending by $1.3 billion.” Scott has also said nothing in several months about illegal immigration. He once pledged to back an Arizona-style immigration law that would require police to check the legal status of people they suspected were illegal. He has since backed away from this pledge.

the conservative group Americans for Prosperity, told the Sentinel he was “flabbergasted” by Scott’s decision, saying it went beyond even his budget proposal that didn’t cut spending and the teacher pay raises. “For the governor to reverse that position, I felt incredibly shocked and so did many of his base,” he said. A few Republican gover nors have turned down federal money to expand Medicaid in their states. So far, Gov. Rick Perry, R-Texas, is not one of them. Last week he made his intentions clear when he said, “We’re not going to be expanding Medicaid in Texas. The reason is because it’s a broken system. It’s moving our state — and I’ll just speak to our state — towards bankruptcy if we expand the current program.” As for Gov. Scott’s turnabout, a paraphrase of the wisdom Forest Gump’s momma gave him might fit: Politicians are like a box of chocolates; you never know what you’re going to get until after they’re elected.

ARTESIA — For the most part, a break is a good thing. Just taking time off of work and stepping away from the daily grind can really recharge one’s batteries. In sports, however, a break can be a hot team’s worst enemy.


Coming off a victory over Artesia on Feb. 15 and a narrow loss to Roswell on Feb. 19, the Goddard girls basketball team was playing its best basketball of the year. After the loss to Roswell, though, the Rockets didn’t have a game until Tuesday’s matchup with Artesia and, unfortunately for Goddard, the rust showed.

The Rockets (11-16) scored four points in the first quarter and 12 points in the first half as Artesia downed Goddard 50-35 in the semifinals of the District 4-4A tournament at the Bulldog Pit.



VAUGHN — Andrew Meeks poured in a game-high 24 points to lead Gateway Christian to a District 3-B win over Vaughn on Tuesday. Gateway (8-14, 4-2 district) led by just one after one, but outscored the Eagles 16-1 in the second on its way to a 6442 win. Johnny Worrall added 16 points for the Warriors.


VAUGHN — Gateway built a 21-18 halftime lead, but couldn’t hang on in a loss to Vaughn on Tuesday. The Eagles won the third quarter 13-8 to seize a 31-29 lead and won the fourth 11-8 to pick up a 42-37 victory. Charlee Longmire paced the Warriors (2-20, 2-6 District 3-B) with 15 points. Shelby Toles added 12 points and 11 rebounds.


LAKE ARTHUR — Corona used a dominating second quarter to pull away for a win over Lake Arthur on Tuesday. Corona had a 20-10 lead after one, but pulled away by outscoring the Panthers 27-1 in the second en route to an 80-15 win. Mayra Davila led the Panthers (2-14, 2-5 District 3-B) with seven points. Theresa Salcido added six points.

Hagerman girls beat Capitan, advance DISTRICT 7-1A BASKETBALL


HAGERMAN — Basketball is a team sport. You win as a team, and you lose as a team. Because of this simple fact, as a sports reporter, you hate to focus too much on a single play or player. But, as anyone who went to Tuesday’s girls basketball game in Hagerman can tell you, this game was decided by the exceptional play of Jessica Rodriguez, who led Hagerman to a 46-30 win. It was the first round of the girls District 7-1A tournament, pitting the visiting Capitan Tigers vs. the home Hagerman Bobcats. These two teams had met twice before, and, in both games, including one just four days ago, Hagerman came away with an easy victory by 20 or more points. Capitan coach Julie Montoya was hoping that the third time would be the charm. Her plan to attack the inside on offense and run a 3-2 zone on defense to stop up the penetration of the quick Bobcats was working quite well. Perhaps, too, Hagerman had overlooked the Tigers in preparation for a semifinal matchup against Mescalero Apache, and just came out flat. Regardless, the score was a lot closer than any oddsmaker would have picked — it was 12-8 in favor of Hagerman after the first periSee ADVANCE, Page B2

ARTESIA — The NMMI boys and girls tennis teams each picked up victories over Artesia on Tuesday. The Colt boys triumphed 90 and the girls won 5-2. Singles winners for the boys were Jose Gonzalez (60, 6-2), Federico Sanchez (61, 6-0), Gavin Lynch (6-0, 60), Jorge Garza (6-0, 6-0), Mauricio Moncada (6-1, 6-0) and Jose Garcia (6-1, 6-0). In boys doubles, Lynch and Vincenz Forkel won 7-5, 6-2, Moncada and Garza won 6-0, 6-1, and Garcia and Ricardo Kaufmann won 6-3, 6-3. Singles winners for the girls were Mariah Garcia (6-2, 6-3), Samantha Ikard (6-4, 6-3), Bailey Wohler (6-1, 6-0) and Summer O’Brien (6-4, 6-3). In girls doubles, Ikard and O’Brien won 6-3, 6-7 (1-6), 6-2.

In the first half, Goddard got quality looks at the basket, but the shots that were falling against Artesia and Roswell earlier in the month, bounced harmlessly off the rim. Rocket coach Greg Torres

Run to the Roses: Orb now fifth

Shug McGaughey catches Derby fever every once in a while, and the Hall of Fame trainer just might have it again thanks to a 3-year-old colt named Orb. Sure, it’s more than two months before the Kentucky Derby, but it’s never too early to start planning for a trip to Churchill Downs on the first Saturday in May. Orb rallied in the stretch for a halflength win over favorite Violence in Saturday’s Fountain of Youth at Gulfstream Park for his third straight victory. The result moved the bay colt into the No. 5 slot in the AP’s latest Run to the Roses list

of Top 10 Derby contenders. Even though McGaughey admits he’s excited about a chance to win his first Derby — he’s 0 for 6 in four Derbys, including a second-place finish with Easy Goer in 1989 — he’s trying to remain his usual low-key self. “If he keeps improving, maybe he’ll be something,” the trainer said after confirming Orb came out of the race in good shape and is likely headed next to the Florida Derby on March 30. “He’s come so far over the winter. My people have done a great See ROSES, Page B2

JOHANNESBURG (AP) — Even if Oscar Pistorius is acquitted of murder, firearms and legal experts in South Africa believe that, by his own account, the star athlete violated basic gun-handling regulations and exposed himself to a homicide charge by shooting into a closed door without knowing who was behind it. Particularly jarring for firearms instructors and legal experts is that Pistorius testified that he shot at a closed toilet door, fearing but not knowing for certain that a nighttime intruder was on the other side. Instead of an intruder, Pistorius’ girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp was in the toilet cubicle. Struck by three of four shots that Pistorius fired from a 9 mm pistol, she died within minutes. Prosecutors charged Pistorius with premeditated murder, saying the shooting followed an argument between the two. Pistorius said it was an accident. South Africa has stringent laws regulating the use of lethal force for self-protection. In order to get a permit to own a firearm, applicants

must not only know those rules but must demonstrate proficiency with the weapon and knowledge of its safe handling, making it far tougher to legally own a gun in South Africa than many other countries where a mere background check suffices. Pistorius took such a competency test for his 9 mm pistol and passed it, according to the South African Police Service’s National Firearms Center. “You can’t shoot through a closed door,” said Andre Pretorius, president of the Professional Firearm Trainers Council, a regulatory body for South African firearms instructors. “People who own guns and have been through the training, they know that shooting through a door is not going to go through South African law as an accident.” “There is no situation in South Africa that allows a person to shoot at a threat that is not identified,” Pretorius added. “Firing multiple shots, it makes it that much worse. ...It could have been a minor — a 15-year -old kid, a 12-year -old kid — breaking in to get food.”

up 50 points and that is where we have been the past couple of games, but offensively, it seemed like we just struggled,” he said. “Having seven days off, it is hard to keep that continuity going, but like you said, we got the looks. The 3s we were hitting the past few games weren’t falling, and Artesia was able to convert some 3s. “It is one of those things, they hit more 3s and free throws and we missed a bunch of buckets.

A Sign of Trouble

Giant Fish Disappearing Giant fish swim through the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rivers and lakes. But most of them are hidden and mysterious. Legends about creatures such as the Loch* Ness Monster could have sprung from sightings of giant fish. The Loch Ness Monster is a dinosaur-like, and probably imaginary, animal that many say they have spotted in a lake in Scotland.

The 1,100-pound Chinese paddlefish may be the largest freshwater fish in the world, at 23 feet long. But scientists fear it is extinct. No one has seen one since 2003. Giant dams are separating populations, making it harder for them to breed.

The blue catfish swims in Tennessee waters. It can weigh about 200 pounds now, but 100 years ago, it was probably much larger. Writer Mark Twain described an 800-pound catfish that many believe was a blue catfish.

Shrinking giants People have discovered huge fish weighing hundreds of pounds in rivers and lakes. Centuries ago, their ancestors were probably even bigger. Overfishing and habitat destruction may be preventing the fish from growing so large and may be killing whole species. Giant freshwater fish may be disappearing before we have had a chance to study them.

Climate change may be affecting the makeup of rivers and lakes. The giant pangasius catfish can grow to more than 9 feet long. It lives in rivers in the rainforests of southeast Asia.

Folks tell tales of Volkswagen-sized catfish at the bottom of dams in the Mississippi River. Some experts think mermaid sightings may have really been giant fish. To learn more about these gigantic creatures, The Mini Page talked with the curator of fishes at the Tennessee Aquarium in Chattanooga, which recently opened an exhibit on â&#x20AC;&#x153;River Giants.â&#x20AC;?

Some freshwater fish weigh hundreds of pounds and can be at least 6 feet long. There are about 20 species of these giant fish left in the wild. In order for fish to grow this large, the rivers and lakes where they live must be healthy. It takes a lot of food to feed a fish that will grow to weigh hundreds of pounds. The fish also must have the time to grow so huge. If many fish manage to live long enough to reach that size, it is a sign that people are not overfishing the area. Unfortunately, giant fish are disappearing from our freshwater, or bodies of water other than the sea. This is a sign of more serious problems. Freshwater fish of all sizes are in trouble. More than one-fifth of all known freshwater fish have become extinct or severely threatened in recent years. In North America, freshwater fish are becoming extinct at nearly 900 times the rate they did before the 1800s, according to fossil records.

Alligator gar have broad snouts that look like those of alligators. They live in waters in the southeast United States, but have been found as far north as Ohio. They can grow to 12 feet long, weighing more than 300 pounds.

Keeping water safe

Changing our habits

%VERYTHINGWEDOINOUROWN backyards affects the whole environment. All water from our cities and farms ends up back in the rivers and then in the oceans. Recycling, handling waste safely, keeping chemicals off our lawns and gardens, conserving water and protecting our resources are all things everyone can do to help. Remember that rivers and lakes AREIMPORTANTNOTONLYTOFISH7E get our drinking water from the same water system. River and lake ecosystems support millions of people and animals around the world.

As the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s population grows, there is more demand for fresh drinking water. The increased use has threatened fish living in the waters. By making good laws and stopping overfishing, we can protect our rivers and lakes and still make it possible for people to feed their families. Fish farms are one solution. In some areas, ecotourism is a growing industry. Sportspeople can fish and then release the fish back into the wild after theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve caught them. Tourists pay local people to see the giant fish and their habitat. from The Mini Page Š 2013 Universal Uclick

Meet Some Giant Fish

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

Lake sturgeon

Freshwater whipray

The lake sturgeon is a dinosaurlike fish swimming in rivers and lakes in many parts of North America. A few years ago, it was almost extinct in parts of the country, such as Tennessee. But the Tennessee Aquarium and conservation groups fought to stop the extinction. They worked to increase river flow to what it had been before dams. This caused the oxygen levels to rise in the rivers. Fishers had been catching sturgeon and throwing them on riverbanks to die. Now overfishing has been stopped. Tennessee has put about 125,000 sturgeon back into the rivers. Conservationists plan to double that number. %XPERTSPRAISETHESUCCESSIN saving the sturgeon as an example of how we can turn things around and save other threatened fish.

7HIPRAYSHAVEEYESATTHETOPOF their heads so they can watch for threats as they hunt on the bottom of rivers and lakes. They often bury themselves in sand and mud, waiting for their prey and hiding from their enemies, with only their eyes above the mud. They also have a great sense of smell that helps them hunt. Rays can sting, but they would rather swim away than attack. They attack only if they feel threatened.

Lake sturgeon can grow up to 8 feet long and can live for 150 years in the wild. They feed on fish at the bottom of rivers and lakes. The Mini Page thanks Thom Demas, curator of fishes, Tennessee Aquarium, for help with this issue. Next week, The Mini Page is about Newspaper in Education Week.

The arapaima

Wallago catfish

The arapaima has primitive lungs as well as gills. It has to surface about every 20 minutes to breathe oxygen from the air or it will drown. In dry seasons, the Amazon River ISMUCHSHALLOWER7ITHOUTLUNGS the arapaima would not be able to get enough oxygen from the river. Its primitive lungs are so ancient that they are not found in any other modern fish.

The wallago catfish has rows and rows of sharp teeth. Some of its teeth point backward so they can better trap their prey. The sharp teeth grab onto prey The wallago swims in Asian rivers and like a fishhook.

DEAR ABBY: I need help and I can’t talk to anyone I know, so I’m pouring my heart out to you. My husband is addicted to online porn. Our sex life has suffered massively because of it. He seems uninterested in sex with me. I had a feeling that it might be something or someone else. My woman’s intuition told me there had to be a reason for him turning to

por n, so I checked our computer’s history log and found he has been surfing gay porn. He does watch straight porn, but now peppers it with male-on-male porn as well. It has shattered my world. I don’t know what to think or what to do. I can’t discuss this with my family. They would never view him in the same way again. Help! J.

DEAR BY THE CLOCK: Tell your therapist exactly how this is affecting you and ask what HER problem is. She owes you an explanation. I agree that being late for your appointment is disrespectful if it happens regularly. You may need to find another therapist. If that’s the case, be sure to tell her why you are leaving. It takes courage to be assertive, but it will help you in your personal growth.

Dear Readers: Everyone has a CUTTING BOARD or two in the kitchen, and some are in pretty bad shape! Here are recommendations from the United States Department of Agriculture regarding cutting boards to help keep food safe: • Nonporous cutting boards made of plastic, glass or recycled materials are easier to clean. • Keep at least two cutting boards: one for cutting only fruits and vegetables, the other for meats. • After use, wash cutting boards with hot, soapy water, rinse and air-dry or dry with paper towels. (Heloise here: Don’t use a dish towel, because it can spread bacteria.) Nonporous and solid-wood cutting boards can be washed in the dishwasher. (Heloise here: Although the USDA states that a wooden cutting board can be put in a dishwasher, I hand-wash mine.) • Over time, all cutting boards wear down and need to be replaced. A sure sign that they need replacing is deep grooves that become difficult to properly clean. Heloise SEND A GREAT HINT TO: Heloise P.O.

Dear Heloise: I finally found a way to separate my egg whites from the yolks: I just break them into a small colander! The egg whites easily drop out of the colander, leaving the yolks behind. Sara B., via email

After testing this hint in Heloise Central, it works, but it takes some time for the whites to get through the colander. What we did was use a slotted spoon to move the egg around a little, then just used the spoon to easily remove the yolk from the whites. Heloise

Dear Heloise: I had several computer mouse pads that I had received for free. I was at a loss as to what to do with all the other ones. One day, I was in the kitchen trying to mix something in a bowl with the electric mixer. The only problem was that the bowl kept moving. I placed one of the mouse pads under the bowl, and it no longer slid! I now keep a mouse pad in the kitchen just for this purpose. Linda D. in Missouri

World’s postal services struggle with lower demand OTAKI, New Zealand (AP) — For now, a boom in Internet shopping is helping keep alive moribund postal services across the developed world. But the core of their business — letters — is declining precipitously, and data from many countries indicate that parcels alone won’t be enough to save them. The once-proud postal services that helped build modern society are scaling back operations, risking further declines. The United Kingdom is preparing to wash its hands of mail deliveries entirely by selling the Royal Mail, which traces its roots back nearly 500 years to the reign of King Henry VIII. The U.S. Postal Service sparked uproar this month when it announced plans to stop delivering letters on Saturdays. New Zealand is considering more drastic cuts: three days of deliveries per week instead of six. It’s only in the past few years that postal services have truly felt the pinch of the Inter net. Revenues at the USPS, which delivers about 40 percent of the world’s mail, peaked in 2007 at $75 billion. But the decline since then has been rapid. USPS revenue in 2012 fell to $65 billion, and its losses were $15.9 billion. It handled 160 billion pieces of mail that year, down from 212 billion in 2007. And it had slashed its workforce by 156,000, or 23 percent. Elsewhere, the news is just as grim. La

Poste in France estimates that by 2015, it will be delivering 30 percent fewer letters than it did in 2008. Japan last year delivered 13 percent fewer letters than it did four years earlier. In Denmark, the postal service said letter volumes dropped 12 percent in a single year. The Universal Postal Union, which reports to the United Nations, estimates that letter volumes worldwide dropped by nearly 4 percent in 2011 and at an even faster clip in developed nations. Developed countries closed 5 percent of their post offices in 2011 alone. U.S. Postmaster General Patrick Donahoe, in an interview with The Associated Press, said he doesn’t believe the service can ever regain the revenue from packages it has lost from letters. He said axing Saturday mail deliveries, while keeping six-day-a-week package deliveries, will save the service about $2 billion a year. Donahoe said he thinks ending Saturday letter deliveries will keep the USPS a solid proposition for years to come. “People still go to their mailbox every day and they wait for their mail to come,” he said. “It’s part of American life.” And it has been since the beginning. The postal service’s role was defined in the Constitution, and Benjamin Franklin was the first postmaster general. The short-lived Pony Express achieved an enduring place in American folklore. Even the modern system of highways and airline travel grew from pioneering routes

developed by the postal service. “It’s easy to forget how central this institution was to commerce, public life, social affairs,” said Richard John, a Columbia University professor who has written a book on the postal service. “It was once very, very important. Of course, that was then and this is now.” Even now, however, much depends on the post office.

Weak mobile sales Lawsuits claim beers are watered down hurt RadioShack

FOR T WOR TH, Texas (AP) — Struggling electronics chain RadioShack Corp. on Tuesday reported a $63 million loss in the last quarter of 2012, its fourth consecutive quarterly loss, pressured by weaker mobile sales.

Electronics retailers have been suffering from tough competition, as more consumers buy electronics from online merchants such as and discounters expand their own electronics offerings. In particular, RadioShack said weak demand for mobile phones and phone plans pressured results. But there were some glimmers during the quarter that things may improve. Gross margin — the percentage of every dollar in revenue a company actually keeps — was flat for the year outside of the cell phone business. And the company’s business improved in the no-contract phone and tablet segments.

KeyBanc Capital Markets analyst Bradley B. Thomas there was another plus: the Fort Worth, Texas-based company will exit its poorly performing Target kiosk business by April 8, so it will be able to focus on its core business. Thomas said the wild card is the company’s mobile business, which is under “significant” pressure. But he said new CEO Joseph Magnacca, who took over earlier this month after former CEO James Gooch stepped down in September 2012, might be able to improve results.

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Beer lovers across the U.S. have filed $5 million class-action lawsuits accusing Anheuser-Busch of watering down its Budweiser, Michelob and other brands. The suits, filed in Pennsylvania, California and other states, claim consumers have been cheated out of the alcohol content stated on labels. Budweiser and Michelob each boast of being 5 percent alcohol, while some “light” versions are said to be just over 4 percent. The lawsuits are based on information from former employees at the company’s 13 U.S. breweries, some in high-level plant positions, according to lead lawyer Josh Boxer of San Rafael, Calif. “Our information comes from former employees at Anheuser-Busch, who have informed us that as a matter of corporate practice, all of their products mentioned (in the lawsuit) are watered down,” Boxer said. “It’s a simple cost-saving measure, and it’s very significant.” The excess water is added just before bottling and cuts the stated alcohol content by 3 percent to 8 per-

We proudly adhere to the highest standards in brewing our beers, which have made them the best-selling in the U.S. and the world,” Peter Kraemer, vice president of brewing and supply, said in a statement.

is accurate to within one-hundredth of a percent. But after the merger, the company increasingly chose to dilute its popular brands of beer, the lawsuit alleged. “Following the merger, AB vigorously accelerated the deceptive practices described below, sacrificing the quality products once produced by Anheuser-Busch in order to reduce costs,” said the lead lawsuit, filed Friday in federal court in San Francisco on behalf of consumers in the lower 48 states. The named Pennsylvania plaintiffs, Thomas and Gerald Greenberg of Ambler, said they buy six cases of the affected Anheuser-Busch products a month. One of the California plaintif fs, Nina Giampaoli of Sonoma County, said she bought a six-pack of Budweiser every week for the past four years. “I think it’s wrong for huge corporations to lie to their loyal customers — I really feel cheated. No matter what the product is, people should be able to rely on the information companies put on their labels,” Giampaoli said in a news release issued by Boxer’s law firm.

When Tomorrow Starts Without Me When tomorrow starts without me and I am not here. When you wake up, your eyes are full of tears. If you listen, I’ll whisper in your ear. An angel has come for me., She says my time has come and I am done. I fly with her to Heaven. Oh, how nice it is, and then I see my Heavenly Father on a golden throne and he says you’re not alone. I promise you eternal life. You won’t have to worry about

yesterday and your tomorrows will all be the same. You will forget about the pain. So, take my hand and understand this here in Heaven is your land. Your family is now here and you have your own throne. I give him my hand and with no time at all, I am having a ball but I will miss you all. So when tomorrow starts without me, don’t think we are far apart. For every time you think of me, please know I am in your heart. We love you, Pampo.
