NKorea will halt some nuke activities

WASHINGTON (AP) — North Korea raised hopes Wednesday for a major easing in nuclear tensions under its youthful new leader, agreeing to suspend uranium enrichment at a major facility and refrain from missile and nuclear tests in exchange for a mountain of critically needed U.S. food aid.

for abandoning its nuclear weapons program. Pyongyang pulled out of those talks in 2009 and seemingly has viewed the nuclear program as key to the survival of its dynastic, communist regime, now entering its third generation.

The announcement, just over two months after the death of longtime ruler Kim Jong Il, opened a door for the secretive government under his untested youngest son, Kim Jong Un, to improve ties with the United States and win critically

needed aid and international acceptance. It also opened the way for international inspections for the North’s nuclear program, which has gone unmonitored for years. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said the agreement, announced at separate but simultaneous statements by the longtime adversaries, was a modest step but also “a reminder that the world is transforming around us.” See NKOREA, Page A3

On to Super Tuesday

WASHINGTON (AP) — A victorious Mitt Romney and runner-up Rick Santorum both claimed satisfaction from the close Michigan primary on Wednesday as they swiftly shifted their duel for the Republican presidential nomination to Ohio and the rest of next week’s delegate-rich Super Tuesday contests. Campaigning in Bexley, Ohio, Romney promised “more jobs, less debt and a smaller government” if he wins the nomination and defeats President Barack Obama in the fall. “Interestingly, the people who said that the economy and jobs were their No. 1 issue, they voted for me, overwhelmingly” in the Michigan primary, he said. Santorum saw the events of the previous 24 hours differently, having won half of the 30 delegates in his rival’s home state primary even though he lost the popular vote. “We had a

much better night in Michigan than maybe was first reported,” he said, in Tennessee. While Santorum contended the race to pick an opponent for Democrat Obama was down to two men, Newt Gingrich and Ron Paul had other ideas as they set their own priorities for the 10 Super Tuesday contests. That made Washington’s caucuses on Saturday something of a campaign way-station, worth 40 delegates but squeezed in between two big primary nights. The pattern of the candidates’ schedules underscored a shift in the nature of the race, away from oneor-two-state nights where political momentum counted for much, and into a period of multiple contests, where the object is to pile

only finishes to its base before it will be presented to the public. The statue, a five-year project, will be unveiled in a dedication ceremony March 31, at 10 a.m., at the courthouse. Named, “Pat Garrett’s

Ride to Destiny,” the statue stands 14 feet, 2 inches tall from its base to the tip of Garrett’s hat, and is just over 9 feet wide from the nose of Garrett’s horse to the tail, Pritchard said. See GARRETT, Page A3

Thomas Mireles seeks seat on Dexter Town Council See GOP, Page A3

Thomas Mireles

Thomas Mireles, manager at Frazier Oil & Gas, says he is seeking election for a Dexter Town Council seat during the valley elections March 6. Dexter has two four-year council seats slated to be on its ballot. Born and raised in the

town, Mireles said he is running “to maintain the stability of the town as of right now, the way it’s always been. Changes are good, but radical changes are a little extreme sometimes for a small community town that we’ve always been.” He added he felt it was time to step up, serve his term and do his good deed. Calling Dexter citizens

well involved and concerned, Mireles said, “We’ve had good people that have been running this little town for a long time, with a lot of community support, and I’d like to make sure it stays that way.” If elected, Mireles would like to help bring in more businesses to the community and “see why it’s been so hard to build around here.” Bringing in busi-

nesses would create additional job opportunities for Hagerman residents, meaning they would not have to travel to Artesia or Roswell for work, especially with the price of gas these days, Mireles said.

Nasdaq cracks 3,000, stocks fall The Nasdaq composite index briefly broke through 3,000 on Wednesday for the first time since the collapse in dotcom stocks more than a decade ago. Stocks ended lower, but it was still the best February on Wall Street in 14 years. The milestone for the Nasdaq, heavy with technology stocks, came a day after the Dow Jones industrial average closed above 13,000 for the first time since May 2008. Apple, the Nasdaq’s biggest component, topped $500 billion in market value, the only company above the halftrillion mark and only the sixth in U.S. corporate history to grow so big. Apple might reveal its next iPad model next week. The Nasdaq last hit 3,000 on Dec. 13, 2000. Its last close above 3,000 was two days earlier. It was only above 3,000 for seconds on Wednesday before closing down 19.87, at 2,966.89. The Dow lost 53.05 to close at 12,952.07. The Standard & Poor’s 500 index fell 6.50 points to close at 1,365.68. For the month, the Dow gained 2.5 percent, the S&P 4.1 percent and the Nasdaq 5.4 percent. The last time the stock market had such a strong February was in 1998, when the S&P gained 7 percent. Stocks opened higher after the gover nment said that the economy grew faster at the end of last year than previously estimated — a 3 percent annual rate, the best reading since the spring of 2010. Stocks fell sharply after about an hour, then recovered by mid-afternoon, after the Federal Reserve’s survey of regional economic conditions said the economy strengthened in the first six weeks of the year. They had turned negative around 10 a.m., after Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke testified on Capitol Hill that the economy has performed better than expected in recent months. He said gas prices will add to inflation and unemployment is falling faster than expected. Bernanke’s remarks made it appear less likely that the Fed will begin another round of bondbuying to juice the economy. Bond-buying increases the money supply and could add to inflation, so signs of inflation make it a less appetizing option. And unemployment must remain high for the Fed to justify such an aggressive policy.

U.S. T reasury debt plunged on speculation that the Fed wouldn’t enter the market again. The yield on the 10-year Treasury note spiked to 2.02 percent during Ber nanke’s remarks, from 1.94 percent minutes earlier. It fell back to 1.97 percent. Bond yields rise as their prices fall. Materials and energy companies had the steepest losses of the S&P 500’s 10 industry groups. Consumer staples was the only industry to close higher. The price of gold plunged $77 per ounce, the biggest one-day drop since September, as traders dialed back their expectations that the dollar would be weakened by another round of economic stimulus from the Fed. Gold settled at $1,711.30 an ounce, its lowest close since Jan. 25. Silver also fell sharply. The Nasdaq has gained 14.5 percent this year, compared with 6.4 percent for the Dow and 9.1 percent for the S&P 500. The Nasdaq already has risen almost as much this year as it did in all of 2010. It edged lower in 2011. Tech stocks appear to be cheap compared with their prices over the past 10 years. The Nasdaq’s price-earnings ratio is 16.9, compared with a daily average since 2003 of 19.6, according to data from FactSet. Price-earnings ratios measure the cost of a share relative to the company’s profits. A lower price-ear nings ratio suggests that stocks are undervalued, or that investors expect earnings to decrease. The recent strength of tech stocks is no surprise when you consider the licking they took during last year’s market gyrations. Tech stocks tend to be more risky and rise faster as investors regain confidence in the economy. The Nasdaq also is benefiting from longterm economic currents that could carry tech stocks even higher. Many companies put of f replacing worn-out technology during the recession and now are investing again. There’s also a growing global market for technology, and big tech companies face less competition these days when they try to acquire smaller ones. Established companies like IBM and Oracle can be picky about buying only companies that will increase their earnings.

Dust storm causes 15-car pile-up New Mexico State Police closed off an 8-mile stretch of road between Mile Marker 71 and Mile Marker 79 on Highway 285, for two hours on Tuesday afternoon, after a 15-vehicle pile-up at the intersection of Highway 285 and 26th Street in Artesia.

Sgt. Lawrence Murray said the accident started with two cars. A further 13 vehicles piled into the first two vehicles. The cause of

the accident was poor visibility due to high winds and blowing dirt. According to Murray, the conditions were so severe along this 2-mile stretch that even authorities had trouble gaining access to the area to complete the investigation and clean up the vehicles. A total of 10 people had been transported to Artesia General Hospital for treatment of minor injuries. ROSWELL LODGE #18 AF & AM

The State of New Mexico Medical Cannabis Program will be holding patient evaluations on Friday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., at 1501 W. Second St. The services provided are medical assessment and consultation. Robert Davis of Peace Medical Marijauna Consultants who will be holding the clinic, got involved in the medical marijuana program after his mother was diagnosed with a terminal disease. “I was looking for something to help her,” he said. He is a firm believer in its usefulness. “The very fact that in 1978 the (federal) government took out a patent on THC in order to develop possible medical uses tells you that.” Davis described the mechanism involved. “Modern research indicates that there are three active components, THC, CBD (cannabidiol) and CBN (cannabinol). The people have specific receptors hard-wired in their brains for THC, CBD and CBN. The brain doesn’t have that for Vicodin, Lortab or any other manufactured drug. Those (manufactured pain killers) work by covering up the receptors while cannabis works with them (the receptors).” Any patient under hospice care or suffering from a terminal disease is eligible for the medical marijuana program. Originally marijuana was used with cancer patients to treat the nausea and the other negative side effects of chemotherapy or help the terminal end phase. However, it has now been shown that cannabis hold the key to a cure. According to the Journal of Cannabis Therapeutics, CBD has been shown not only to relieve convulsions, inflammation, anxiety and nausea, it also inhibits the growth of cancer cells. “Cannabis (in a spraymist form) is also useful in stopping an ashma attack, due to its antiinflammatory properties,” he said. Two types of cannibis have been approved for medical use, Cannabis sativa and Cannabis indica. “One (sativa) is sedative. Indica is a bit of an upper,” Davis said.

Diseases that qualify an individual include cancer, glaucoma, HIV/ AIDS, multiple sclerosis, epilepsy, chronic pain, spinal cord damage with spasticity, painful peripheral neuropathy, nausea/vomiting, severe anorexia/cachexia, PTSD, hepatitis C infection, Crohn's disease, inflammatory autoimmune arthritis and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (Lou Gehrig's disease). Davis explained that the medical marijuana program is not a get-outof-jail-free card. “New Mexico has one of the most stringent requirements in the country. Right now other states are looking at our program to see how to start one of their own.” The clinic will take a medical history, verify the information with a primary care physician, set up face-to-face consultations with the doctors. Once the information is obtained, it is then processed by the Department of Heath in Santa Fe. “Each patient is scrutinized very carefully and not everybody qualifies,” Davis said. PMMC is a non-profit organization. Walk-ins are welcome and the initial consultations are free. “You don’t do this to make money. Most of our patients are disabled and unable to work,” he said. This does not mean that interested parties will not face some charges, for tests or doctors’ appointments. After staff have the chance to review medical records, they may refer the patient onto other specialists. “Those who come to get help will for chronic pain will have to have two doctors sign off before the card will be approved. Other problems such as nausea will only require the signature of only one doctor,” said Davis. People who suffer from PTSD will have to get a signature from a psychiatrist, and if they have not consulted a psychiatrist, an appoint will be set up for them. “All we do is recommendations. We do not do the approvals.” He views some of the other pluses of the program in quality control of their product. “We take marijuana away from the black market.” For more information call 1-505-247-3223.

Ben Alexander and the workers’ compensation reform

Ben Alexander was still going strong the last time I saw him, about 10 years ago, when he sat on a panel for a retrospective on the New Mexico workers’ compensation reform of 1990. He had been an indispensable member of the task force that labored for months hammering out a compromise to save the state’s economy. Alexander died in January at age 91. He is remembered for his political activism, chairmanship of numerous boards, philanthropic activity, and for always being willing to travel from his home town of Hobbs to wherever he was needed. He owned an oil well servicing company. In the mid-1980s, businesses like his were paying as much as $67 in workers’ compensation premiums for every $100 of payroll. Construction and other labor -intensive industries had similar crippling costs, but Texas companies could work in New Mexico while paying much lower

Texas rates. New Mexico was in real crisis. Insurance costs were so unstable that insurers simply stopped writing policies in New Mexico. With the business community up in arms, the law was changed several times over five years, culminating in the 1990 reform. By that time, half of all policies were in the Assigned Risk Pool — the special class of insurance, extra expensive, normally reserved for bad risks. Each change was an experiment in attempting to get costs under control while preserving fairness. They involved direct

challenges to formidable special interest groups, notably the trial lawyers. Ben Alexander’s great credibility was vital to overcoming these political obstacles. With prices so punitive, the system simply could not afford the luxury of litigating the majority of individual cases. The work comp reform reduced the need for litigation by introducing formulas for deter mining benefits, and reduced the incentive for litigation by such radical measures as a statutory cap on attorney fees. It took hard work by many people in crisis mode to devise these changes. It took statesmanship by a leader like Ben Alexander, along with a few courageous labor representatives, to get the reform done. The reform involved a deal that is likely unique in New Mexico history. The task force had only two voting members: business and labor. The interest groups that make their living from the

work comp system — insurance companies, trial lawyers, doctors, and so on — had no vote. House Speaker Raymond Sanchez and Senate President Pro Tem Manny Aragon promised that if business and labor agreed, they would get the bill passed without amendment. Gov. Garrey Carruthers promised to sign it. That happened in a special legislative session in September 1990. The new law created the Work Comp Advisory Council, and its first chairman was Ben Alexander. Premiums came down and the state was saved. In candor, that’s only partly due to the law. It was also due to the 1990s booming stock market. When markets are thriving, an insurance company can sell you a dollar’s worth of insurance for 75 cents, because it will make the other quarter by investing your money. The law itself had lots of problems, including inef ficiencies and

unfairnesses, and still does. Alexander continued to worry about the “little guys” in the system: injured workers and small business. In that meeting 10 years ago, he told me of a few more changes he would like to have made, primarily to help small businesses. Gerald Stuyvesant, who was director of the Workers’ Compensation Administration during that period, said recently, “Mr. Alexander was a true gentleman in every sense of the word. ... Ben Alexander’s influence was essential in guaranteeing that if an agreement could be worked out, the Democratic political establishment would create the legislation necessary to affect its purpose.” Ben Alexander is irreplaceable, but I sure hope somebody tries. We can always use leadership of that caliber. Contact Merilee Dannemann at www.triplespacedagain.com. © New Mexico News Services 2012

A poverty mentality

The rich are the bane of the poor, we are told. “Liberals” — who once stood for individual autonomy and freedom from the governments of Richard Nixon and L yndon Baines Johnson — embrace confiscation schemes in which authorities decide who gets what. They favor government control of health care, which will result in authorities telling us what we can and cannot smoke, drink or eat. President Barack Obama demands that the rich pay their fair share. “Conservatives,” who once valued limited gover nment and pr osperity, want interventionist wars to “spread democracy,” and all assortment of restrictions on free trade. They want less immigration, not more, for fear of foreigners consuming portions of a fixed amount of wealth that cannot grow. Our country has embraced a poverty mentality. Freedom is seldom championed and is considered a radical idea that belongs only to the Ron Paul crowd. T he r ig h t an d t he l e ft a r e m e r e l y engaged in a battle over which aspects of our lives gover nment should control. L e ad e rs i n e a c h m o v em e n t s e e m t o believe that our nation’s wealth is limited and maxed out, and redistribution is the way to get a chunk. Both sides of the political spectrum seem unaware of the fact that wealth is created by human endeavors and has no l im i ts . F r eed om , w hi c h i n v ol v e s t h e prospect of riches or failure, is the fuel of prosperity. That means freedom for immigrants to invent, produce or harvest lettuce. It means freedom from government dictates to buy health insurance products we may not want. It means the freedom to keep most of the fruits of our endeavo r s w i th o ut be in g c h ast i se d as e vi l , greedy rich people who are responsible for the plight of the poor. The mentality of redistribution distracts us from innovation and production. Few have explained this more eloquently than James Robison, author of “Indivisible: Restoring Faith, Family, and Freedom Before It’s Too Late.” Robison argues that “when we talk about poverty, we often compare the poverty of some with the wealth of others, as if the wealth of some causes the poverty of others. ... But the gap between the rich and the poor does not automatically mean that wealth is just transferred from the poor to the rich.” In a market economy, that’s as wrong as saying that “the health of some causes the illness of others, or the intelligence of some leads to the ignorance of others.” Pull that one out the next time someone tells you the rich harm the poor. Guest Editorial The Northwest Florida Daily News DEAR DOCTOR K: My 4year-old daughter wets her bed at night. I know this happens to a lot of kids, but I wonder if I should be worried. How should I handle it, and what can I do to make it stop? DEAR READER: You’re right — many young kids do wet the bed for a time. Bed-wetting is pretty normal for infants and young children, and usually doesn’t indicate a medical problem. Many kids going through toilet training can stay dry during the day, but they may wet the bed at night for several more months to a few years. Bed-wetting is not considered a problem until around school age, meaning 5 or 6 years old. Why is it happening? Most

Blind ambition not a presidential qualification GENE HEALY CATO INSTITUTE

Are you depressed about the shape of the 2012 presidential race? Maybe you’re not depressed enough. Nobody who wants the presidency too badly ought to be trusted with it. George Washington struck the right note in his first inaugural: “No event could have filled me with greater anxieties” than learning of his election. Yet, as the powers of the presidency have grown far beyond what Washington could have imagined, the selection process has changed

in ways that make it vanishingly unlikely that a latter-day Washington will seek the job. Unfortunately, the modern presidential campaign calls forth characters with delusions of grandeur, a flair for dissembling, and a bottomless hunger for higher office. Nobody who wants the presidency too badly ought to be trusted with it. Barack Obama’s audacious ambition is by now wellknown. “He’s always wanted to be president,” one of Obama’s oldest friends, presidential adviser Valerie Jarrett, has admitted. In a November 2007 inter-

It’s important to remember that she isn’t doing it on purpose. Try these suggestions to help with nighttime toilet training (they can also be used for kids of any age who wet the bed): — Encourage drinking during the day. She’ll make more urine, which may help stretch her bladder to hold more urine at night. — In the last two hours before bedtime, limit beverages and foods that melt into liquids, such as Popsicles. — Always remind your daughter to go to the bathroom before going to bed. — Remind her to get up to go to the bathroom in the middle of the night when she has to. — Make it easy for her to find the bathroom at night. Put a

view, then-candidate Obama commented, “If you don’t have enough self-awareness to see the element of megalomania involved in thinking you should be leader of the free world, then you probably shouldn’t be president.” So, only “self-aware” megalomaniacs should get nuclear weapons — that’s one way of looking at it. Judging by the 2012 field, it may be the best we can do.

If your daughter is still having problems at age 6 or older, call your doctor to discuss further testing and treatment. Several medical conditions can cause bed-wetting.

Pinworms irritate the vagina, which in tur n encourages urinary tract infections. See DR. K, Page A5

What are the light requirements for a cactus to bloom Roswell Daily Record

Q. I have a very old Christmas cactus. I bought it at an auction about 45 years ago and it was old then. It has wavy edges, not pointed. I put it in darkness during August and just now the one bud is coming into bloom. What are the light requirements to get it to bloom? My grandmother used to put hers in the basement in August and withhold water. Do you have any suggestions? Carolyn M. A. You have a very special plant. Such old plants are a great addition to a gardener’s collection. If I understand correctly, your plant did not respond in the same manner as it has in the past. Did you repot the plant late last year? If you repotted it late in the season, that may have stressed the plant enough to reduce flowering. However, cacti can tolerate such stress

LEGAL ASSISTANCE The State Bar of New Mexico’s Lawyer Referral for the Elderly Program (LREP) is of fering a free legal workshop on “Common Legal Issues for Senior Citizens” from 10 to 11:15 a.m., Tuesday, at the Roswell JOY Senior Center, 1822 N. Montana Ave. Free halfhour legal consultations for New Mexicans 55 or older are part of the program. All seniors, family members and others who work with seniors are invited to attend.

It has long been thought that psychological problems might cause bed-wetting. It’s my understanding from talking to experts on the subject that this theory is not based on much solid evidence. Nevertheless, it may be true in some kids. Watch for these “red flag” signs in a child who is wetting the bed: a

with little problem, so I also wonder if it has been a long time since it was repotted and given fresh potting soil. Extremely long times without repotting may interrupt flower formation by allowing depletion of nutrients in the potting soil or due to accumulation of surplus mineral salts in the soil. If repotting is necessary, repot your plant in the spring after flowering and just before new growth begins. If growth has begun, it is OK to repot. Good light and nutrition with adequate water are needed to keep the plant healthy enough to flower. Even though this plant is a cactus, it is native to the tropical rain forests where it experiences frequent moisture with periods of drying between precipitations, and a long, cool dry period in the autumn. During the growing season, do not let it dry excessively.

Christmas cacti (and Thanksgiving and Easter cacti) require special conditions in the autumn to produce their flowers. A dark treatment should begin about the time of the autumnal equinox in September. This dark treatment means long nights (14 hours or longer without any light at all). Interruption of the night by lamps in a room or streetlights outside a window can delay or prevent flowering, especially early in the autumn. Temperature and limited irrigation seems to be at least as important, or more so, for inducing flowering in these cacti. Tempera-

Thursday, March 1, 2012

For other gardeners who

are interested in these interesting plants, there are three species of cacti in two genera that look quite similar, but have different seasons for blooming. The Thanksgiving cacti and Christmas cacti bloom in the autumn or mid-winter as their names imply. They may have pointed edges or wavy edges on their flattened stems that serve as leaves. An interesting, and less known, relative of these plants, the sunrise, or Easter cactus looks like the Christmas and Thanksgiving cacti with wavy edges to the stems, but it produces a large flower with a typical cactus-flower shape. It blooms in the spring. It requires a very dry period in October and November to flower properly. Drying is also beneficial to the Christmas and Thanksgiving cacti. When these cacti experience cool, dry autumns

tures as low as 40 degrees or even a little lower (especially at night) are very important. High night temperatures (above 65 degrees) during the floral induction period can prevent flowering. Your grandmother’s technique of putting it in the basement provided the cool temperatures that were needed. I assume the basement was dark most of the time. The cactus was able to tolerate the darkness because it is such a tolerant plant, but it would be better for the cactus to have light during the (short) days. These days should be 10 hours or less.

with long nights and short days, they are very consistent producers of beautiful flowers in the appropriate season.

NMMI hosts southeast regional science olympiad

On Feb. 4, New Mexico Military Institute hosted the Southeast New Mexico Regional Science Olympiad. The Science Olympiad is a competition that has 23 dif ferent events ranging from balsa tower building to chemistry lab to robot arm creation to many other mind-bending events. NMMI teams took first place overall, winning nine events and bringing home twenty-five medals. NMMI has been participating in the Science Olympiad since 1993; this is the first year NMMI has won the regional competition. Thirteen teams from 11

southeast New Mexico high schools participated in the event. NMMI fielded two teams for the competition, both performing superbly. The teams comprised some of the best and brightest students in NMMI’s high school sciences program under the guidance of coaches Roger Castillo, Robert Hudgeons, Frank Kimbler, Cheryl Martinez, Elena Viltchinskaia, and Terri Castillo. Professor John McVay, Associate Dean, Division of Natural Sciences and Mathematics, put an exclamation point on the results, saying, “In the

main room of the Division of Mathematics and Sciences, now resides a trophy indicating that NMMI is the first place winner of the Regional Science Olympiad for 2012. Please join me in congratulating all of the cadets and faculty who made this possible. I will leave it to Col. Cheryl Martinez and Maj. Roger Castillo, who headed up the NMMI effort, to inform you of all that were involved. Suffice it to say that this event demands a huge commitment of time and ef fort on the part of all involved, both cadet and faculty.”

NMMI’s Team A included cadets Sam Liakos, Gus Liakos, Matt Salazar, Lance Hinkle, Phillip Castillo, Kalen Chao, Jakub Mroczkowski, Pilsun Kwak, Nahm Kim, Scott LeFevre, Angela Cross, T revor Fowler, Adam Carnaham, and Angel Reyes.

sees the CINC’s portfolio as broad enough to include hectoring Americans about their sex lives: “The dangers of contraception in this country, the whole sexual libertine idea... these are important public policy issues.” Clearly, anyone who wants the job badly enough to campaign as exhaustingly as Santorum has — living out of a suitcase on the long march through all 99 Iowa counties — doesn’t simply want to take care that the laws are faithfully executed and otherwise mind his own business. But maybe we shouldn’t be surprised that the modern process calls forth people with inordinate ambition and grandiose visions, like Newt Gingrich, who has bragged that “I first talked about (saving civilization) in August of 1958.” As the Atlantic’s James Fallows put it recently, “an abnormal-psych study could be written on every president of the modern era except the one who never ran for national office, Gerald R. Ford.” With apologies to

Groucho Marx, anybody who wants to belong to this club shouldn’t be allowed to be a member. In his terrific book “See How They Ran,” historian Gil Troy writes that “Originally, presidential candidates were supposed to ‘stand’ for election, not ‘run.’ They did not make speeches. They did not shake hands. Republican detachment from the political arena was good and dignified; actively seeking office and soliciting votes was humiliating and bad.” The Jeffersonian ideal of the “mute tribune” was imperfectly observed, Troy notes, but it was something to aspire to, and candidates who violated it were occasionally punished at the polls. Amid the tumult of the 2012 race, it’s hard to imagine returning to the era of the “front porch campaign,” when candidates were hardly seen and rarely heard. But we ought to strive to make the office less powerful, and thus, a less attractive prize for those who hunger for power.

Vote YES March 6th

The question came up about a “sunset” date: The implementation of a sunset clause was debated and excluded from the City’s Ordinance because it imposes strict limitations on the ability of economic development. Economic development is not a 5 year plan or a 10 year plan; it is not a 15 or 20 year plan. It is perpetual for as long as it is successful. When this tax is no longer a benefit to the community, it should be repealed. The strict process that qualified projects are subjected, will not survive when projects no longer qualify.

The question arose as to whether the City Council could raise the tax rate at anytime: By state statute, the City Council is not able to increase the tax rate. In 1994, the State of New Mexico, through approval of the voters and a constitutional amendment, chose to allow a ‘municipal infrastructure gross receipts tax’ as a means to offset the anti-donation clause. This tool was given exclusively for economic development and is to be used as a competitive effort for job retention, expansion and for attracting new business opportunities. To increase the rate or to alter our utilization of the proceeds would be a violation of the statute and would create a hefty consequence for the City of Roswell.

There was some misunderstanding about restructuring existing contracts and how it would be ripe for abuse: Our Ordinance was written to closely mirror the parameters that were established by state statute, as well as ordinances that have been used successfully by other cities in Southeast New Mexico. To arbitrarily state that it is ripe for abuse is simply unfounded.

Terms that reflect “cost benefit analysis” and “considerable flexibility” raised concerns about “unacceptable contracting techniques” and “favoritism, manipulation, and misuse”: Any verbiage in a legal document can be questioned. It is imperative that we emphasize the intent of the Ordinance, rather than speculate that there are ‘secret implications’ for future abuse. The Ordinance and its intent follow the guidelines that were established by state statute and approved by our legislators. To conclude that the City would do anything that does not adhere to the letter of the law is simply not true. General Information: The municipal infrastructure gross receipts tax was created for communities throughout the State to be able to compete for economic development. This is not a capital improvement tax; there are safeguards to prevent misuse of funds; the ordinance was written with the utmost consideration for the welfare of our community. By Ordinance, all projects will be reviewed by the Economic Development Foundation, a Project Review Committee, the City Council Finance Committee, a first regular meeting of the City Council and finally, a second regular meeting of the City Council where the project will be approved or denied. Safe and secure!!

SPORTS Roswell Daily Record

GENOA, Italy (AP) — The United States stunned Italy 1-0 on Wednesday as Clint Dempsey’s second-half goal gave the Americans their first ever victory over the Azzurri in 11 meetings. Dempsey became only the fourth American to score against Italy when he fired past Gianluigi Buffon in the 55th minute, and the U.S. clung on for a memorable win in the friendly international. It is Jurgen Klinsmann’s fifth victory in 10 games as U.S. coach and will also serve as personal revenge for the for mer Ger many great after losing the 2006 World Cup semifinal to

eventual champion Italy when in charge of the German national team. “It’s historic for us beating a team of Italy’s level and it’s a very good win,” Klinsmann said. “But what we wanted to do above everything was to learn, to see how we could do against a team like Italy. I think the boys did very, very well, they played great for 90 minutes. And moreover we have young players and they’re growing and it’s from games like this that they do.” Italy almost snatched a draw in stoppage time when Riccardo Montolivo's effort flashed past the right

NA T I O N A L BRIEFS KNAUS SUSPENDED FOR SIX RACES

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — NASCAR issued steep penalties against five-time NASCAR champion Jimmie Johnson and his team for failing the first inspection for the Daytona 500. Crew chief Chad Knaus was fined $100,000 and suspended six races Wednesday, car chief Ron Malec also was barred for six races, and Johnson was docked 25 points, sending him into this weekend's race last in the Sprint Cup Series standings. The penalties stem from a failed inspection Feb. 17 at Daytona International Speedway. NASCAR said the No. 48 Chevrolet had illegally modified sheet metal between the roof and the side windows, an area known as the C-posts. Hendrick Motorsports immediately said it would appeal, and Knaus and Malec can attend races during the process. "Our organization respects NASCAR and the way the sanctioning body governs our sport," team owner Rick Hendrick said. "In this case, though, the system broke down, and we will voice our concerns through the appeal process." Should the penalties stand, Johnson finds himself in a huge hole at the start of the season. He was wrecked just two laps into Monday night's Daytona 500, and his 42nd-place finish put him 42nd in the standings with two points. The penalty drops him to 43rd in the field, with minus 23 points. He's now trailing Daytona 500 winner Matt Kenseth by 70 points, and is 58 points outside the top 10. It comes after Johnson's worst season in NASCAR: his streak of five consecutive championships was snapped last year, and he finished a career-worst sixth in the standings. He also won only one race. Knaus, meanwhile, has run afoul of NASCAR before. He's been suspended four previous times, but had a two-race ban in 2005 overturned in the appeals process. His last suspension was for six weeks in 2007.

Stadio Luigi Ferraris was very different from the last time the arena hosted a match, when Italy was awarded a 3-0 win over Serbia in European Championship qualifying after the game was called off in the seventh minute following crowd trouble from the visiting fans. There was no sign of

such trouble on Wednesday and a sizable American contingent added to the lively atmosphere. Former baseball great Mike Piazza was among the 15,000 fans, alongside Brian McBride — who was left with a bleeding face following an elbow by Daniele De

Accuser of ex-CB Cox questioned by defense

CASTLE ROCK, Colo. (AP) — Denver Broncos wide receiver Demaryius Thomas testified at former teammate Perrish Cox’s sexual assault trial Wednesday, saying that Cox carried a sleeping woman into his bed and then told Thomas: “I think she’s ready.” Cox is accused of sexually assaulting the woman, who testified earlier Wednesday. Both the woman and Thomas told jurors they kissed on an air mattress at Cox’s apartment after meeting up at a club with Cox and Cox’s girlfriend. Thomas said the woman fell asleep, and he dismissed Cox’s suggestion, saying he didn’t want to have sex with the woman because she was drunk. “I wanted to have sex with her but I didn’t,” Thomas testified. “We hadn’t done nothing before. I wasn’t going to try nothing that night because she had been drinking. She had got drunk.” Thomas testified that Cox then sat with him in the living room for a while. He said the woman was still in the bedroom when he left about an hour later. The woman testified that she had a fuzzy memory of what happened that night and suspected she had been drugged after she woke up feeling sick the next day.

See HISTORIC, Page B2

Under questioning from Cox’s attorney, the woman said if something had happened with Thomas, she wouldn’t have considered it rape. “It wouldn’t have been fine but I wouldn’t have seen it as rape if he admitted it,” she said, referring to Thomas. She said Thomas denied that anything had happened. Later, she found out she was pregnant and contacted authorities on Oct. 28, 2010. Investigators say DNA tests indicate Cox is the father. Thomas and Vaughn also submitted DNA samples and were cleared. The Associated Press isn’t identifying the woman because she's an alleged victim of a sexual crime. Cox has pleaded not guilty to one count of sexual assault while the victim was See COX, Page B2

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — Drew Gordon scored 12 of New Mexico’s first 18 points and Hugh Greenwood opened the second half with 14 straight points as the Lobos defeated Air Force 8656 on Wednesday night. Greenwood finished with a game- and career-high 22 points with six rebounds, and Gordon had 17 points and 11 rebounds for New Mexico (23-6, 9-4 Mountain West), which ended a twogame losing streak. Taylor Broekhuis scored 11 points to lead Air Force (13-14, 3-10). “I thought tonight, we did an awful lot of good things,” New Mexico coach Steve Alford said. “We shared the basketball. We didn’t turn the ball over. We dominated the glass. I thought our defense was really back to being that stingy defense we've been seeing.” The game was close for the first few minutes before New Mexico reeled off a 19-6 run to go up 21-9, and the lead never fell below double digits thereafter.

release Hines Ward PITTSBURGH (AP) — Hines Ward’s constant, earto-ear smile tucked behind a black facemask has been a lasting image for Pittsburgh Steelers fans the past 14 seasons. They won’t see it again. A four-time Pro Bowl selection, who holds franchise records for receptions, receiving yards and receiving touchdowns, Ward, 35, will be released by the organization that drafted him back in 1998. “We had a conversation today with Hines Ward and informed him that we plan to release him of his contract prior to the start of the 2012 NFL calendar year,” Steelers President Art Rooney II said in a statement on the team’s website Wednesday. “Hines has been an integral part of our success since we drafted him in 1998, and we will forever be grateful for what he has helped us achieve.” A four-time Pro Bowl selection, Ward will finish his Steelers career with 1,000 catches, 12,083 yards and 85 receiving touchdowns. He helped Pittsburgh to three AFC championships, and two Super Bowl titles. A third-round pick out of Georgia, Ward was the MVP of the Super Bowl in 2006 after leading the Steelers to a 21-10 victory over the Seattle Seahawks. He posted a game-high 123 receiving yards on five receptions with one touchdown. “He has meant so much to this organization, both on and off the field,” Rooney said, “and we appreciate

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Alex Rodriguez laughed off Bobby Valentine’s comments about his 2004 scrap with Jason Varitek, then made a brief statement and ducked through the crowd of reporters surrounding his locker. Derek Jeter spoke longer, but was no less bemused. On the final day of February, the two New York stars were already being dragged into the first Yankees-Red Sox stir of the year. “I have no thoughts whatsoever,” Jeter said. "That's the best way to put it." Valentine, Boston's new manager, said Tuesday that Jeter didn't need to make his famous flip-to-home relay during the 2001 playoffs. He also fondly recalled when Varitek "beat up" Rodriguez in 2004 during a confrontation between A-Rod and the Boston catcher. Rodriguez said Wednesday he hadn't heard Valentine's comments. After being told about them, he gave a brief response. "I'm not going to win many battles here when it comes to words, especially against Bobby," Rodriguez said. "But I will tell you this: I've got my new press secretary that should be landing in the next couple days — Reggie Jackson — so I'll let him handle that." And with that, A-Rod was gone. Jeter, on the other hand, talked for around five minutes about how ridiculous he found the topic. "I don't know Bobby well enough to tell you what he's trying to do," Jeter said. "I don't know what to tell you. ... I'm indifferent." The Red Sox were working on relay throws at spring training on Tuesday and Valentine was asked about one of the most famous relay plays in all of baseball — from

The three weeks he spent there were very useful to him. “But we’re building him one step at a time. He’s definitely one to watch and build over the next few years. This is a growth period of time that’s not going to happen overnight.” Italy had its own personnel problem, especially up front where it was missing injured forwards Giuseppe Rossi and Antonio Cassano.

Down 2-0 in the series and with a 1-0 lead in the seventh inning, Yankees right fielder Shane Spencer missed the cutoff man on a hit by Terrence Long. That's when Jeter seemingly came out of nowhere to grab the overthrow near the first baseline and flipped the ball home to get Jeremy Giambi at the plate. Valentine said he thought Jeter was out of position and he didn't believe the Yankees would practice the relay that way. "I mean, we do," Jeter said. "What do you want me to say? I mean, really. What am I supposed to say?" Sure enough, when the Yankees were practicing later in the morning, Jeter drifted over toward the area between first and home on a ball to the right-field corner. Jeter said he's there mostly for the possibility of a play at third. "I don't flip it home when we practice it. I'm the cutoff guy," he said. "Am I supposed to convince (Valentine)? I don't really know what you guys want from me on that one." Valentine also said he felt Giambi would have been out at the plate even if Jeter hadn't touched the ball. Does the New York shortstop agree? "No, but who cares? I mean, why are we talking about this, really?" Jeter said. "He must be bored over there, huh? I don't understand." Rodriguez and Varitek were part of a benches-clearing incident in 2004 after Red Sox pitcher Bronson Arroyo plunked the New York third baseman. After Rodriguez started cursing at Arroyo, Varitek came to his pitcher's defense by shoving his catcher's mitt into A-Rod's face. Terry Francona, who was Boston's manager at the time, was actually in the Yankees' clubhouse Wednesday. He's now an analyst for ESPN.

er Tim Howard rushed out and cleared the danger along with Steve Cherundolo. Italy had another chance when Christian Maggio found some space on the right flank but his cross in was intercepted by Chievo midfielder Michael Bradley. The Azzurri’s first effort on target came in the fifth minute as Howard stopped Thiago Motta’s weak effort. The Americans’ first sight of goal came when Fabiano Johnson slotted the ball across to Shea who fired well wide of the right post. Italy did have the ball in the back of the net in the 26th minute but Matri’s goal was ruled out for offside. Italy also went close seconds before halftime. Nocerino’s cross

in was cleared by the U.S. defense but straight to Motta who lashed in a fierce ef fort which Howard did well to stop. The U.S. stunned Italy 10 minutes after the break when Jozy Altidore kicked Bradley’s cross out to Dempsey and the Fulham striker lashed in a fierce shot from just outside the box which flew past Buffon’s outsretched hand and into the bottom left cor ner. It was Dempsey’s 25th goal in 83 appearances. “Initially, I was going to stay where I was and have him lay it back to me,” Dempsey said. “I saw the guy was covering. So I tried to move to my right to try get open so he could play me the ball. He did a great job of holding it up, playing me, and I just tried to hit it low and hard, far

Saints, Cardinals to play in Hall of Fame game

CANTON, Ohio (AP) — The NFL says the Arizona Cardinals will play the New Orleans Saints on Aug. 5 to kick off the preseason in the Hall of Fame game. Last season's Hall of Fame game was canceled because of the NFL lockout. New Orleans will be playing in the game for the fifth time, most recently in a 20-7 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers in 2007. Arizona will be back for the fourth time, and first since 1986. The game comes a day after six players, including Saints tackle Willie Road, are inducted into the Hall of Fame. NFL Network will televise the game, which starts at 8 p.m. EDT, the league announced Wednesday.

Woods stares down reporter over Haney book

PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. (AP) — Tiger Woods had a terse exchange with a reporter over excerpts from former swing coach Hank Haney's book. The volley ended with Woods refusing to answer the question, staring him down for five seconds and saying sarcastically, "Have a good day." The topic Wednesday at the Honda Classic was Haney's contention that Woods seriously thought about becoming a Navy SEAL at the peak of his career. And so began a bumpy road to the Masters for Woods, who has gone more

post, and it went in.” Italy reacted by bringing on Roma forward Fabio Borini for his inter national debut and Inter’s Giampaolo Pazzini. The U.S. also introduced a debutante as Terrence Boyd made his first appearance despite not yet having played a first-team club match for Borussia Dortmund. Borini almost scored for Italy with his first touch for his country but Howard stopped the youngster’s stinging effort from the edge of the area. Italy upped the pressure on the U.S. goal as the half went on, but never really looked like scoring until Pazzini set up Montolivo for a good chance in stoppage time. It is Italy’s second defeat in a row, following November’s 1-0 loss to Uruguay in Rome.

ARIES (March 21-April 19)  You might know a little too much. Be discreet, and keep your observations to yourself. Communication excels. You know what to say and when to say it. You understand others’ motives better than they do. Few like to be read that well. Tonight: Hang out with your buddies. TAURUS (April 20-May 20)    Deal with finances directly. An emotional risk or monetary gamble could easily backfire and be the source of an argument. The smart move is to do nothing. Find an outlet for your feelings and your self-expression. Tonight: Your treat! GEMINI (May 21-June 20)     There is an underlying sense of dissatisfaction that keeps bubbling up from out of nowhere. You know what is going on, and you know where you are heading, with the exception of a property-related issue or domestic matter. Tonight: Discuss this issue with the other party involved. CANCER (June 21-July 22)  You might be taken aback by the harshness of your words, even in a simple conversation. You might wonder what is going on within. Stop and root out some rather strong feelings, even if you are uncomfortable. Otherwise, you might not have the control you desire. Tonight: Soulsearching. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)  Without intending to, you could be sarcastic and cop an attitude out of the blue. Your smile draws many people, and you do not want to push them away. Think about a boss or parent. Look at a problem from this person’s point of view. Tonight: Burning the midnight oil. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)  Your ability to detach from a situation could earmark your ability to get to the root of a problem. Use intellect rather than emotion, and you will succeed. Be careful with pent-up anger. It could pop out at any given moment. Tonight: Put on music and relax. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)  You are driven to succeed, but you need to work or brainstorm with a key associate or partner. Together, you are more likely to pull off the impossible.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19)  You might not be very stable right now. Part of the problem is that new infor mation makes you aware of misinformation or how someone created his or her own version of the story. Detach rather than get angry. Tonight: Go for an escape. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18)  You can do nothing with a partner or associate who decides to go on the warpath.

Trial begins in ‘Desperate Housewives’ firing case

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Nicollette Sheridan was fired from “Desperate Housewives” for standing up to the series’ creator after he struck her in the head, her attorney said Wednesday during opening statements in her wrongful termination trial. Mark Baute said the show’s creator and executive producer, Marc Cherry, struck Sheridan hard on the head in September 2008 and fired her after ABC cleared him of wrongdoing. Sheridan is seeking roughly $6 million in damages. Baute said Cherry acknowledges touching Sheridan, but claims he was tapping her head to give her artistic direction. “This is a man hitting a woman in the head — hard — without her consent,” Baute said. The ABC series’ stars, Eva Longoria, Terri Hatcher, Felicity Huffman and Marcia Cross, could provide some star power to the trial because all are listed as potential witnesses. The trial will also provide a behind-the-scenes look at how a major television show is created, with both sides focusing on when the decision was made to kill off Sheridan’s character, Edie Britt. Baute said Sheridan was waging her case mostly alone, but that two of the show’s writers will testify that no decision about eliminating Sheridan’s character was made until after ABC concluded its inquiry into the slapping incident. Baute argued that the Edie Britt death was hastily planned and not the result of months of planning as Cherry claims. Britt was killed off in the fifth season. Attorneys for the show claim it was a creative decision, but the actress said she was wrongfully fired for complaining that Cherry struck her during a fight. Sheridan dabbed her eyes with a cloth during her attorney’s opening remarks, and hugged Baute after he concluded. Cherry and ABC have denied all wrongdoing. Their defense attorney was expected to make an opening statement later Wednesday.

Opening statements began Tuesday in Sheridan's trial over her firing from "Desperate Housewives" after an alleged attack by the show's creator.

Jurors will be asked to decide whether Sheridan was wrongfully terminated from the show and whether Cherry committed battery by striking her in the head. Sheridan and Cherry attended jury selection, which lasted two days. Potential panelists were grilled on whether they had seen the show and their views on television and violence. “Desperate Housewives,” a glossy primetime comedy/soap opera with an ensemble cast including Hatcher and Longoria, made a pop-culture and ratings splash when it premiered in 2004 but has seen its audience dwindle. It is in its last season.

DEAR ABBY UNIVERSAL PRESS SYNDICATE

DEAR ABBY: For years, I suffered from high blood pressure and diabetes. I never had a clue that they are the two leading causes of kidney failure. After reading in your column about National Kidney Month, I decided to take your suggestion and go to the National Kidney Foundation website at kidney.org. When I attended their free screening through the Kidney Early Evaluation Program (KEEP), I found out that high blood pressure can damage the kidney’s filtering units, that diabetes is the No. 1 risk factor for kidney dis-

ease and how important it is to keep them both under control. That screening was a wake-up call for me. I now take insulin for my diabetes and medication for my blood pressure. I have cut out salt and starch, added lots of vegetables to my diet, and 30 minutes on the stationary bike to my daily routine. My efforts have paid off. Last year when I was screened again at the KEEP, I learned that my kidney function has increased. Tens of millions of Americans are at risk for kidney disease. Won’t you please remind your readers again how important it is to be screened? For me it was a lifesaver. JERRYDEAN QUEEN, NEW ORLEANS DEAR JERRYDEAN: I’m pleased that my column alerted you to your risk for kidney disease, and that you caught it in time. Readers, March 8 is World Kidney Day. The National Kidney

Foundation is again urging Americans to learn the risk factors for kidney disease and be screened so you can prevent damage to these vital organs. For advice on how to stay healthy and a schedule of free screenings — not only during March but also throughout the year — visit the National Kidney Foundation online at kidney.org. #####

DEAR ABBY: Someone gave a very inappropriate eulogy for someone my family cares about dearly. Is it worth it to say something to him? “Alton” lost his mother, a really good person who was loved by many, and he attacked her during his eulogy. Alton shared quite a few details about his mother’s life that no one needed to know. But the bottom line is, she was a good person who made some mistakes toward the end of her life. Alton is arrogant and mean and has a long history of verbally attacking family members.

DEAR COULDN’T BELIEVE YOUR EARS: I vote no, because I seriously doubt that anything you could say would shame an arrogant, mean jerk into admitting he made a mistake by speaking disrespectfully of his mother at her funeral. A better way to handle it would be for those who were offended to avoid him. A deafening silence may convey the message more loudly than words.

People are still talking about the eulogy. There were individuals at the service who called him names, and a few walked out in tears. Word spread to people in other states within minutes after the service ended. Is it worth pointing out to an arrogant jerk that his eulogy was appalling and has caused a lot of anger? Should one of us step forward and say something to him, or just chalk it up to “once a jerk, always a jerk”? COULDN’T BELIEVE MY EARS IN ARIZONA

Dear Heloise: It gets very cold here, so to defray the cost of heating oil, I have a PELLET STOVE. The stove is wonderful and environmentally friendly, so that’s a big plus. The pellets come in 40-pound bags of heavy plastic labeled number 4 (recycle triangle symbol — Heloise). Since we are avid recyclers, we save the bags. I have called every recycling company in my phone book, and no one knows where to send these bags. Our city has curbside recycling; however, it only takes numbers 1 and 2. I hope you can help. Patricia B., Manchester, N.H. Since you already called your recycling center with no luck, try contacting grocery stores in your area. Most recycle their own plastic shopping bags; they also may be able to take these bags. Heloise Central contacted a store in San Antonio and was told it could accept these bags (and also any other store bags and drycleaning bags). Heloise #####

The cord slides back and forth through the knot as you iron. Thank you for all you and your team do to help make life easier and more economical, and help the environment. Barbara B., Tyler, Texas

STATE/OBITUARIES

PNM has strong earnings, takes heat

ALBUQUERQUE (AP) — The parent company of New Mexico’s largest electric provider on Wednesday announced it has started to turn things around, reporting earnings of more than $176 million for 2011 and improvements in ongoing earnings per share of nearly 25 percent. PNM Resources’ earnings report comes as environmental groups accuse it of pursuing rate hikes, higher profits and executive pay at a time when ratepayers are struggling. Both of the company’s utilities — Public Service Company of New Mexico and Texas New Mexico Power — showed increases in ongoing earnings. The company pointed to higher retail rates for the improvements. In the case of PNM, New Mexico regulators approved an increase of about 9 percent in base rates that went into effect in August. That, along with lower power plant outage costs, mild weather and load growth, helped the utility’s financial outlook. “Our strong ongoing earnings per share growth of more than 24 percent year-over-year reflects the significant strides we made

to better position the company financially,” said Pat Vincent-Collawn, PNM Resources president and chief executive. Vincent-Collawn said the focus will continue on providing a more stable and predictable earnings trajectory. She also said PNM Resources will continue to address the regulatory environment on several fronts to ensure the two utilities are financially healthy. Five nonprofit groups, including the Sierra Club and the San Juan Citizens Alliance, issued a report Tuesday that looked at PNM’s rate revenues, profits and executive compensations from 2008 to 2012. The groups contend that PNM paid executives increased compensation and sought rate hikes while ratepayers were struggling. “With three rate hikes in four years going mostly to corporate profits while New Mexicans are struggling, PNM is behaving like a big Wall Street bank,” Mariel Nanasi, executive director of the environmental group New Energy Economy, said in a statement. The report contends that

rate increases in 2008, 2009 and 2011 have amounted to an additional $250 million in revenue for PNM. Less than 6 percent of the money was spent on energy efficiency programs or clean energy projects, according to the analysis. The groups have been battling PNM for years over the rate increases, renewable energy investments and pollution controls at the San Juan Generating Station, an 1,800-megawatt coal-fired power plant in northwestern New Mexico that provides electricity to more than 2 million customers in the Southwest. On Wednesday, activists gathered outside PNM’s headquarters in Albuquerque. They used chalk to write their anti-coal messages on the sidewalks and passed out fliers calling for more clean energy. PNM spokesman Frederick Bermudez argued that the nonprofits’ report oversimplifies the utility’s financial picture. Bermudez said PNM has spent millions of dollars each year to provide customers with reliable, affordable and environmentally responsible energy. Last year, it invested

almost $100 million to bring online 22 megawatts of solar power spread among five facilities around the state. In 2009, it completed a $320 million upgrade at the San Juan plant as part of a settlement with environmentalists over pollution controls. PNM also said investments of more than $226 million in its system in 2010 left the utility with a negative cash flow of $35 million, and that the rate increases were sought to bring financial stability to the business. PNM officials said only a small fraction of the money the company collects as a result of the rate increases represents profits. While average residential rates increase about 40 percent over the past five years, PNM said the increases in revenue allows it to continue to invest in its systems, which provide electricity to about 500,000 customers in New Mexico. PNM also argued that it meets New Mexico’s current renewable energy portfolio standard, which requires 10 percent of electricity to come from solar, wind or other renewable sources.

show’s Broadway production, a success that brought him to the attention of Columbia Pictures/Screen Gems Television, which created The Monkees. Hundreds turned out for auditions, but the young men who became The Monkees had no idea what ultimately awaited them. “They had an ad in the newspaper,” Jones recalled on NBC’s “Today Show” last year, “and then we all showed up.” “The Monkees” was a band clearly patterned on The Beatle’s film “A Hard Days Night,” chronicling the comic trials and tribulations of a rock group whose four members lived together and traveled to gigs in a tricked-out car called the Monkeemobile. Mike Nesmith, Peter Tork and Micky Dolenz starred with him. Each part was loosely created to resemble one of the Beatles. At 5-feet-3, Jones was by far the shortest member of the group — a fact often made light of on the show. But he also was its dreamboat, mirroring Paul McCartney’s role in The Beatles. And as the only Briton among the four, Jones was in some ways The Monkees’ direct connection to the Beatlemania still strong in the U.S. when the TV show made its debut. In August 1966, The Beatles performed in San Francisco, playing their last live set for a paying audience. The same month, The Monkees released their first album, introducing the group to the world. The first single, “Last T rain to Clarksville,” became a No. 1 hit. And the TV show caught on

quickly with audiences, featuring fast-paced, helter -skelter comedy inspired as much by the Marx Brothers as The Beatles. It was a shrewd case of cross-platform promotion. As David Bianculli noted in his “Dictionary of Teleliteracy,” “The show’s music self-contained videos, clear forerunners of MTV, propelled the group’s first seven singles to enviable positions on the pop charts: three number ones, two number twos, two number threes.” Yet after the show’s launch, The Monkees came under fire from music critics when it was learned that session musicians — and not the group’s members — had played the musical instruments on their recordings. They were derided as the “Prefab Four,” an insulting comparison to The Beatles’ nickname, the “Fab Four.” In reality, Jones could play the drums and guitar, and although Dolenz learned to play the drums after he joined the group, he could also play guitar, as could Nesmith. Nesmith also wrote several of The Monkees’ songs, as well as songs for others. Tork, who played bass and keyboards on the TV show was a multiinstrumentalist. The group eventually prevailed over the show’s producers, including music director Don Kirchner, and began to play their own instrumentals. Regardless, the group was supported by enviable talent. Carole King and Gerry Goffin wrote “Pleasant Valley Sunday,” and Neil Diamond penned “I’m a Believer.” Musicians who

STATE BRIEFS

Veterans benefits SANTA FE (AP) — More National Guard and Reserve personnel can qualify for state benefits for veterans under legislation signed into law by Gov. Susana Martinez. Under the new law, National Guard and Reserve members who complete six years of service will be considered veterans and eligible for state benefits, such as a property tax break. Military personnel currently must serve on active duty on a federal mission for at least 90 consecutive days to be considered veterans and eligible for certain state benefits. An estimated 4,000 National Guard personnel should qualify for benefits because of the change of law, according to state officials. The governor signed the legislation on Wednesday as well as a proposal allowing people to earmark part of their state income tax refund for services to veterans.

Funding for Sacred Power SANTA FE (AP) — New Mexico regulators are con-

Roswell Daily Record sidering whether to allow Sacred Power Communications access to certain funds to help pay for telecom projects in outlying areas of the Navajo Nation. The Public Regulation Commission heard arguments in the case last week. The agency’s general counsel is now preparing a draft order with recommendations for the commission. Sacred Power is seeking $2 million in Universal Service Funds. The company says the money would help pay for the extension of high-speed telecom and Inter net capabilities to underserved Navajo areas in northwestern New Mexico. If approved, the disbursement would increase Universal Service Fund surcharges for telecommunications customers statewide. Commissioner Jason Marks cautions that millions of dollars in subsidies have already flowed to Sacred Wind by virtue of PRC orders and the commission needs to look closely at the request.

Singer Davy Jones of The Monkees dies in Florida at 66

Davy Jones, 2009.

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) — Davy Jones, the diminutive heartthrob singer who rocketed to the top of the 1960s music charts by beckoning millions of adoring fans with the catchy refrains of The Monkees, died Wednesday. He was 66. His publicist, Helen Kensick, confirmed that Jones died of a heart attack near his home in Indiantown. Jones complained of breathing troubles early in the morning and was taken to a hospital where he was pronounced dead, said Rhonda Irons of the Martin County Sheriff’s Office. The sheriff’s spokeswoman said there were no suspicious circumstances. Jones’ stylishly moppish long hair, boyish good looks and his British accent endeared him to legions of screaming

young fans after “The Monkees” premiered on CBS in 1966 as a madefor -TV band seeking to capitalize on Beatlemania still sweeping the world. Aspirations of Beatleslike fame were never fully achieved, with the TV show lasting just two years. But The Monkees made rock ’n roll history as the band galvanized a wide American following with love-struck hits such as “Daydream Believer” and “I’m a Believer” that endure even today. Bor n in Manchester, England, on Dec. 30, 1945, Jones became a child star in his native England who appeared on television and stage, including a heralded role as “The Artful Dodger” in the play “Oliver.” He earned a Tony nomination at 16 when he reprised that role in the

played on their records included Billy Preston, who later played with the Beatles, Glen Campbell, Leon Russell, Ry Cooder and Neil Young. Young tweeted Wednesday that he was sad to learn of Jones’ death. “The Monkees were such a sensation that it was a thrill for me to have them record some of my early songs,” he added. The group also released the 1968 film “Head,” derided at the time as a psychedelic mishmash notable only for an appearance by Jack Nicholson. It has since come to be considered a cult classic by Monkees fans. After two seasons, the TV series had flared out and was cancelled after 58 episodes in the summer of 1968. But The Monkees remained a nostalgia act for decades. And Jones maintained that the stage was the only place he truly felt at home. “Even today, I have an inferiority complex,” he told the Daily Mail in an interview last year. “I always feel I’m there at the window, looking in. Except when I’m on stage, and then I really come alive.” After the TV show ended, Jones continued to tour with the other Monkees for a time, sometimes playing the drums at concerts when Dolenz came up front to sing. Many also remember Jones from a widely seen episode of “The Brady Bunch” that aired in 1971, in which he makes an appearance at Marcia Brady’s school dance. In the episode, Marcia Brady, president of her school’s Davy Jones Fan Club, promised she could get

him to appear before her classmates. The group eventually broke up over creative differences, although it did reunite from time to time for brief tours over the years, usually without Nesmith. In 1987, Jones, Tork, and Dolenz recorded a new album, “Pool It.” And two years later, the group received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. On Wednesday, flowers were placed on Jones’ own Hollywood star nearby as fans mourned. All four of The Monkees came together for a 1996 album, “Justus,” and a subsequent TV movie “Hey, Hey, It’s The Monkees!” that saw them still living in the same house and still traveling in the Monkeemobile — just like old times. Tork said Wednesday of his former bandmate, “His gifts will be with us always,” Nesmith said. “David’s spirit and soul live well in my heart, among all the lovely people,” using a phrase from a Beatles song that seemed to again cement the two groups’ ties. Jones, who is survived by his wife Jessica Pacheco and four daughters from previous marriages, continued to make appearances on television and stage later. But it was the fame of The Monkees that pulled him back to that era time and time again. On his website, he recalled during auditions for the show when all four men finally were put together in a scene. “That’s it,” he recalled everyone around him saying: “Magic.”
