Senate confirms Brennan for CIA

Vol. 122, No. 58 75¢ Daily / $1.25 Sunday

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Senate confirmed John Brennan to be CIA director Thursday after the Obama administration bowed to demands from Republicans blocking the nomination and stated explicitly there are limits on the president’s power to use drones against U.S. terror suspects on American soil. The vote was 63-34 and came just hours after Republican Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky, a possible 2016 presidential candidate, held the floor past midnight in an old-style fili-

Thirteen Republicans voted with 49 Democrats and one independent to give Brennan, who has been President Barack Obama’s top counterterrorism adviser, the top job at the nation’s spy agency. He will replace Michael Morell, the CIA’s deputy director who has been acting director since David Petraeus resigned in November after acknowledging an affair with his

The state House of Representatives, Thursday, unanimously passed a bill that would create a program to treat veterans with posttraumatic stress disorder using virtual reality therapy. Under House Bill 36, sponsored by Rep. Dianne Hamilton, R-Silver City, the program would be overseen by the Department of Veterans Services and held at the School of Social Work at Western New Mexico University. In a statement, Hamilton said veterans have made great sacrifices “and we owe it to them to do whatever we can to give them the support and therapy they need.” “They deserve a chance to return to normalcy and to enjoy their daily lives, without the lingering effects of PTSD,” she said. “I am sincerely grateful for their willingness to serve our great nation, and I am pleased to see this legislation passed with bipartisan support.” Virtual reality therapy has been tested at Navy Special Warfare units in Califor nia, and the Veterans Affairs Midwest Health Care Net-

NM Senate approves Obama pours on the charm govt pension overhaul SANTA FE (AP) — The Senate approved a proposal Thursday to revamp benefits and eligibility of a pension system for nearly 90,000 state and local gover nment workers and retirees in New Mexico.

Supporters said the changes were necessary to improve the long-term solvency of the Public Employees Retirement Association, which has a $6 billion gap between its assets and the cost of future retirement benefits. If enacted, the proposal would reduce annual costof-living adjustments for pension benefits. It would impose new retirement provisions on employees hired on or after July 1, 2013,

including requiring them to work longer before collecting pension benefits. The bill passed the Senate on a 38-4 vote and goes to the House with time running out on the legislative session. Lawmakers adjourn in nine days, and supporters of the proposed overhaul warned that the failure to approve the legislation would allow the pension system’s finances to worsen and potentially force more drastic benefits cutbacks in the future. “The longer we postpone this the more painful it becomes,” said Sen. John Arthur Smith, a Deming

WASHINGTON (AP) — Punctuated with the sounds of ringing phones and clinking china, President Barack Obama’s new legislative diplomacy has Republicans wondering what took so long. Obama pressed ahead Thursday with his bipartisan political outreach, eliciting a cautious welcome in a capital that has been riven by gridlock and partisanship over how to lower deficits and stabilize the nation’s debt. Obama had the Republican House Budget Committee chair man, Paul Ryan, and the committee’s top Democrat, Chris Van Hollen, to lunch at the White House, a day after he dined with a dozen Republican senators in what the White House said was an effort to find common ground with rank-and-file lawmakers.

The Chaves County Sheriff’s Office in conjunction with the New Mexico State Fire Marshal are investigating the cause of the Wednesday’s fire that left two people dead. Deputy District Attorney Michael Murphy went to the residence in the 4900 block of South Pennsylvania Avenue, Wednesday evening to view the scene. “I was called out because the position of the bodies was inconsistent with the most likely cause of death. I don’t know how better to phrase it. Something that may have suggested that

this wasn’t a case of someone being overcome by smoke. We can get photos, but it’s always better see it in person.” Sheriff Rob Coon said a third man, the home’s owner, discovered the fire.

New England braces for coastal flooding from storm

BOSTON (AP) — A latewinter storm that buried parts of the Midwest and Mid-Atlantic swept into New England on Thursday, bringing snow, rain, strong winds, big waves and fears of coastal flooding. Powerful waves and high winds were expected to cause more trouble than snow from Rhode Island to Maine. In the seacoast town of Scituate, Mass., about 30 miles south of Boston, about a dozen streets were closed after Thursday morning’s high tide sent 2 to 21⁄2 feet of water washing into some areas. Emergency management officials were worried about getting through two more high tides before the storm was

expected to end today. In Salisbury, Mass., on the New Hampshire border, officials ordered evacuations for homes along several beachfront streets. The region was bracing for the brunt of the storm Thursday evening and this morning. The National Weather Service was predicting up to 7 inches of heavy, wet snow in southeastern Connecticut and wind gusts up to 50 mph. A coastal flood warning was in effect for east-facing shores in Massachusetts, with up to a 3foot surge at high tide in some areas. Central Massachusetts was bracing for 8 to 12 inches of snow, with predictions for Boston and nearby areas of 6 to 10

inches. On Cape Cod, where the storm was expected to be mostly rain, officials were concer ned about beach erosion. The area suffered extensive erosion from Superstorm Sandy in October and a major snowstorm last month. Dozens of car crashes were reported across Connecticut on Thursday morning. A FedEx tractor trailer overturned on Interstate 84 in Tolland, causing a chain-reaction crash involving about nine other vehicles, including a state police cruiser and two other tractor -trailers. No serious injuries were reported. The storm pummeled the nation’s midsection Tues-

day, killing at least five people in weather-related traffic accidents. Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell declared a state of emergency and about 50 National Guard soldiers were sent out to help clear roads. Up to 20 inches of snow piled up in central and western parts of the state. About 120,000 customers remained without electricity by mid-day Thursday, down from more than 200,000 outages at the height of the storm. The storm dumped 2 feet of snow in parts of neighboring West Virginia, closing schools in more than half the state and leaving more than 20,000 customers without power. In Mantoloking, N.J., the

We have a winner! ALBUQUERQUE (AP) — The New Mexico Lottery says it sold a Powerball ticket worth $2 million from Wednesday night’s drawing. The lottery says the winning ticket had two wagers matching the winning white ball numbers of 6, 10, 23, 41 and 45 but missed the red Powerball number of 1. That would have netted the ticketholder the $123 million jackpot. Spokeswoman Linda Hamlin says the lottery doesn’t disclose the location where a winning ticket was sold until there’s been an opportunity to claim the price. She says the $2 million prize must be claimed in person at the lottery’s headquarters in Albuquerque. In the meantime, the lottery recommends that the ticketholder sign the ticket immediately.

The proposal would need state approval. Tens of thousands of cubic meters of waste — including clothing, tools and other debris — are stored in WIPP’s underground salt caverns.

“Back home in Corpus, it isn’t really as nice as it is here.” The training has traditionally taken place in Las Cruces, but with funding cutbacks, the aviators needed to find a more economical location. The crew plans to train at the airport until April 16. “Roswell was willing to give us better deals,” Cain said. Rep. Steve Pearce, RN.M., said the move to Roswell was a positive step for the region. “One reason they are here in Roswell is that it offers extraordinary training opportunities,” Pearce told the Record. The weather and the ability for the airport to provide simulated training allow the aviators to compress six weeks of training into three weeks. The boost for the local economy and the savings for the military are good for the economy, Pearce said. “It’s a win, win, win for everybody. Everybody is under a budget crunch here,” Pearce said. “We have to do everything more efficiently and effectively.” AVFlight at RIAC, a private fixed-base operator, was contracted to provide a hanger office space and

ous presidents have tried to develop relationships with members of Congress with varying degrees of success, though some of the biggest pieces of legislation, such as the 1964 Civil Rights Act and a Social Security deal in 1983 required crossparty efforts by Presidents L yndon Johnson and Ronald Reagan. Obama has negotiated directly in the past with House Speaker John Boehner in hopes of finding a large deficit reduction deal, but those efforts have faltered as the president pursued deals with tax increases that Republicans oppose. Most recently, neither side worked hard to avoid $85 billion in automatic spending cuts and instead devolved into partisan finger -pointing over which side was more to blame. Boehner said Obama’s

drone program exposed a deep split among Senate Republicans, pitting leader Mitch McConnell, libertarians and tea partyers against military hawks such as John McCain of Arizona and Lindsey Graham of South Carolina. The government’s drone program and its use in the ongoing fight against terrorists were at the heart of the dispute. Though Paul held the Senate floor for the latenight filibuster, about a dozen of his colleagues who share his views came, too, to take turns speaking for him and trading questions. McConnell, a fellow Kentuckian who faces re-election next year, congratulated him for his “tenacity and for his conviction.” McConnell said in Senate remarks on Thursday, “The United States military no more has the right to kill a U.S. citizen on U.S. soil who is not a combatant fuel. It bought out Great Southwest Aviation’s facilities in January and remodeled a large hangar/ of fice building on site. The facility allows the military unit to train and provide class time to its aviators. “We love that they’re here,” said AVFlight’s general manager Liza Hamilton. “Not only is it great for us, but it’s great for the economy of Roswell as well.” The 25 T -34C Turbo Mentor aircraft used in training were flown from the Corpus Christi base. The older planes will eventually be replaced by T -6B Texans that have twice the horsepower and are equipped with ejection seats. But the T-34s still manage to get the job done. “It’s a great plane that’s been through a lot of wear and tear,” Cain said. Some 50 contracted maintenance workers are assisting with training at the airport. “We take the guys out here who are in the first stages of primary training,” Cain said. “Most of the kids who come out here have very little flight experience at all. We take them from first strapping into a plane to flying solo.” The process includes some 20 hours of flight time, simulator and classroom training. The stunew approach represented a 180-degree turn. “He is going to, after being in office now over four years, he is actually going to sit down and talk to members,” Boehner said. “I think it is a sign, a hopeful sign, and I’m hopeful that something will come out of it. But if the president continues to insist on tax hikes, I don’t think we’re going to get very far.”

Obama may be attempting his charm blitz later than most presidents do. Some presidents have found common ground with opponents sooner, others have not. Former Republican Senate leader T rent Lott, speaking at the 2009 ceremony unveiling his majority leader’s portrait in the Senate, said he and President Bill Clinton maintained a friendly relationship even though they quarreled bitterly in public.

Paul’s filibuster echoed recent congressional debates about the government’s authority in the anti-terror war and whether the United States can hold American terror suspects indefinitely and without charge. The disputes have created unusual coalitions as libertarians and liberals have sided against defense hawks.

The latest GOP split also underscored the current rift within the rank and file over budget cuts, with some tea partyers willing to reduce defense dollars to preserve tax cuts but longtime guardians of military spending fighting back. Graham expressed incredulity that Republicans would criticize Obama on a policy that Republican President George W. Bush enforced in the terror war. dents are flying six days a week. All flights are made in designated working areas approved by the Federal Aviation Administration. The training aircraft used in Roswell can fly up to 250 knots, or miles per hour, and reach up to 25,000 feet. Sometimes, the training is easily noticed. “There are times we do go down and put the plane into a safe position to make a crash landing,” Cain said. “And if people see us kind of low, that’s what we’re training for. We’re not going down there and buzzing houses.” Training in Roswell will consist of visual flight rules, Cain said. Once this is complete, students will learn instrument flying at the Corpus Christi base. Second Lt. William Nutting said the most rewarding part of the training in Roswell has been reaching the stage of taking the airplane out alone. “It’s taken a long time to get to that level,” Nutting said. “We’re not only learning how to fly but how the military want you to fly.” After training at the inter mediate level, the aviators begin to learn specific aircraft and “potentially will be going into combat,” Cain said. of Congress. “His congressional liaison found that that worked against him in the long run because members of Congress expected the president to call them on every issue,” Ritchie said.

Indeed, Ritchie said, no matter what the relationship is between a president and Congress, lawmakers inevitably complain that presidential outreach is not enough and presidents regularly argue that members of Congress demand too much. Obama plans to address Republicans and Democrats in the House and Senate separately next week, the next step in his approach to spell out his agenda to lawmakers.

Santa Fe, Hobbs likely to lose towers ALBUQUERQUE (AP) — The Federal Aviation Administration has notified airports in Santa Fe and Hobbs as well as the general aviation field in west Albuquerque that they will lose funding for their control towers unless they prove a pressing national interest for being spared the federal budget-cutting ax. FAA officials said a final decision on which towers will lose their funding will be made next week, but the bar for exemption is high. “Negative impact on the national interest is the only criterion the FAA will use for deciding to continue services to an airport that falls below the activity threshold,” the FAA wrote to 189 airports across the country that use contract rather than FAA controllers. “The FAA

what long-term impact a tower closure could have on the capital city and tourism destination that has just in the past few years won back commercial jet service with American flights to Dallas and Los Angeles. And it is expecting United service to Denver to begin in May. “We’ve worked very hard for about 10 years — since 9/11 — to get (commercial jet service) back,” said Coss. “Our master plan called for three commercial airlines. We were finally going to achieve that this year.” The Roswell airport, which is served by American, was also targeted for potential closure. But it is staffed with FAA employees so any decision about that airport will come later, an FAA spokesman said.

would be required to contribute more to the retirement fund. Payroll contributions by governmental employees — in ef fect, taxpayers — would increase 0.04 percent. The Senate rejected a proposed amendment that would have boosted taxpayer contributions by an additional 1.1 percent. There were concerns that higher taxpayer contributions could doom chances of the bill passing the Legislature and being signed into law by Republican Gov. Susana Martinez. Most public employee unions are backing the legislation, although municipal firefighters, whose pension program is among the most underfunded in the PERA system, have objected to the proposed overhaul. Four Democrats voted

Smith pointed out that there are signs that say no live animals. “It’s ridiculous, because there’s two shelters. People should come in and speak with us. We won’t judge them. Our concern is for the wellbeing of the animals,” she said. She recommends people have their pets spayed and the Office of the Medical Investigator to determine if there was another possible cause for the deaths.

OPINION

You aren’t going to believe this—recent events

SANTA FE — The world is going crazy folks. I don’t know how else to explain some recent occurrences. The most unbelievable event was basketball star Dennis Rodman’s two-day visit with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un. Rodman was the bad boy of basketball while he played in the NBA. The United States has had no contact with North Korea, the bad boys of the world, for 15 years or so except for a few illfated secret talks. That is why the U.S. State Department was so upset when Bill Richardson accompanied the head of Google to North Korea a few weeks ago. Richardson & Co. never got close to Kim Jong Un. But Rodman and a basketball team arrived in town and had Un hugging and kissing Rodman during two days of basketball games. Evidently Rodman has been a favorite of Un’s for many years.

NATIONAL OPINION

INSIDE THE CAPITOL

Un likes basketball and especially likes Rodman’s style. Could the reason be that they both are bad boys? Back during the “ping pong diplomacy” with China in the early 1970s, it was frequently said that only Richard Nixon could go to China. It is highly unlikely that anyone is going to venture that only Rodman could go to North Korea. U.S. officials certainly aren’t saying it. Rodham came home to tell President Barack Obama that all Kim Jong Un wanted was for Obama to call him. It wouldn’t be especially wise for Mr. Un to sit

Roswell Daily Record

by his phone hoping President Obama will call. Just a few days after the last talks between the two countries, North Korea fired off another missile. It could happen again. And then there is Gov. Susana Martinez’s $2,200 coffee pot that reportedly makes one cup at a time. This column wrote five months ago about many needed repairs being made to the kitchen of the governor’s residence. It started with a leaky gas stove that couldn’t be fixed. Removal revealed a kitchen floor that was close to falling into the basement. The kitchen is part of the public area of the residence so it sees constant traffic from caterers and many others. One thing led to another and much of the kitchen ended up being repaired. No problem with that. For years, the kitchen had three coffee pots on the countertop — a large, medium and small. Caterers complained that they

had to set trays of food on the floor because the coffee makers took up so much counter space. So a coffee maker was built in that would not get in their way. The story of why the high cost for a coffee maker that won’t take care of hundreds hasn’t been told yet but otherwise the governor has been as frugal as she promised. That, of course, has not stopped people who remember the Susana battle cry “Sell the jet” to making T -shirts saying “Sell the coffee pot.” Gov. Martinez also surprised many by voicing support for background checks of people who buy from gun shows. That won’t please many of her base who reveled in the film clip of her nailing every target in her concealed carry gun test. It may be that she is getting ready for her 2014 reelection in a state that appears to be getting bluer.

Another event that made New Mexicans shake their heads was former Sen. Pete Domenici’s surprise announcement that he fathered a son out of wedlock more than 30 years ago. For those of us who follow Washington doings closely, sexual misbehavior is old hat. All that power coupled with people climbing the ladder creates an enticing atmosphere. I can tell you stories of many others in New Mexico’s congressional delegation, who have done worse while doing great things for our state. My only lament is the number of members of Congress who voted to impeach President Clinton for a similar offense, without taking a look at their own life.

President’s Organizing for Action

Blithely ignoring his own past warnings, President Barack Obama is wading ever deeper into a campaign and politics quagmire filled with potential hazard for his second term. He ought to come to his senses. If he doesn’t, it won’t be easy to clean this muck off his shoes later on. The president’s team has formed Organizing for Action, a group intended to advance his priorities using the potent grass-roots technology and troops from his winning re-election campaign. According to a summary prepared for donors and reported by The Post’s Tom Hamburger, this includes 2.2 million volunteers, 33 million Facebook friends, 22 million Twitter followers and 17 million email subscribers. We see nothing wrong with that. But how the Obama people are going about it stinks. They have registered the group as a 501(c)4 organization, under a section of the Internal Revenue Code that provides tax-exempt status for “social welfare” organizations, a broad category that was originally envisioned for civic leagues and the like but which has become a favored dark alley for political operators. Such groups are not required to publicly disclose donors or amounts of contributions, as they would be if they operated under the rules of the Federal Elections Commission. As “social welfare” groups, they must pledge that their work is not “primarily” electoral politics, but that has been left ill-defined by tax authorities. Some electoral and political activity is allowed. Judging by recent reports, Organizing for Action should be renamed Paying for Access. The Obama team has been talking about raising half the group’s money through $500,000 in donations from the president’s top supporters. Moreover, Obama’s team says that donations will not be listed precisely; rather, they will be listed “in ranges.” This affords the donors a useful veil. The president was the one who a few years ago warned us of “a new stampede of special-interest money in our politics.” Now Obama seems to be leading the stampede. Guest Editorial The Washington Post

The average American and sequestration

To hear President Barack Obama tell it, we should begin feeling something like the apocalypse. Sorry, Mr. President, but most of us have already shrugged our shoulders. We have become so accustomed to near-misses, last-minute deals and cans being kicked down the road that we don’t get very excited anymore. You say the restrooms won’t work at Acadia, some federal workers will work four days rather than five and an aircraft carrier is stuck in Norfolk? Yeah, whatever. The federal sequestration that went into effect March 1 cuts $85 billion from this year’s $3.6 trillion budget, or about 2.3 percent. But it is very difficult for the average person to determine what that means, and politicians aren’t making it any easier. Obama has been barnstorming the country predicting that the “brutal” cuts will “eviscerate” government programs. Republicans, meanwhile, point out that federal spending has increased 17 percent since the president first took office and even after the cuts the government will spend more than it did the year before. Indeed, these cuts will only slow the growth of the federal debt, not reduce it. The biggest problem with sequestration isn’t what it does, but what it fails to do: restructure entitlements and taxes. Ultimately, the Democratic administration will try to make the sequestration cuts as painful and obvious to the public as possible. Republicans, meanwhile, will minimize the impact and blame Democrats for any dislocations that result. The rest of us, weary of lurching from one disaster to another, will watch with resignation and disdain as our broken Congress continues to flounder. Guest Editorial The Sun Journal, Lewiston, Maine

DEAR DOCTOR K: These days I mostly type. But when I write, my hand cramps up within minutes. Is there anything I can do? DEAR READER: I do most of my “writing” on my computer, too. Whether I’m writing a column, updating a colleague or catching up with a friend, I’m more likely to reach for a keyboard than a pen. But, like you, on the occasions when I do write in longhand, my hand sometimes misbehaves. It does not become painful — the handwriting just is less legible.

Why I wish Washington was still alive (Part 3)

In the previous two columns, I highlighted the first seven of the top 10 reasons I wish George Washington were still alive: 10) Washington was a role model for many, even as a youth. 9) Washington epitomized courage. 8) Washington wasn’t afraid of public opinion or challenging the status quo. 7) Washington was a man of integrity and character yet just as human as the rest of us. 6) Washington was a first-class servant leader who walked what he talked. 5) Washington didn’t allow personal obstacles to stop his service to God, his family and his country. 4) Washington was a devoted family man.

three reasons I wish he were still alive and why I believe the model of his life is still worthy to shadow today. 3) Washington revered God and religion, often elevating their irreplaceable and invaluable roles in our republic.

you try to write, the worse the cramping gets. Your hand may even jerk involuntarily. That happens to me. Most cases of writer’s cramp have no identifiable cause. But in rare cases, writer’s cramp may result from disc disease in the neck, certain drugs (such as lithium), or brain disease (including stroke or tumors). A common but mistaken belief is that muscle cramps are caused by abnormal potassium, sodium or calcium. That may be true on occasion, but not usually. Still, I’ve known some patients who report that eating more potassium — in the form of a banana or glass of orange juice each day — led to improved handwriting. There’s no real treatment for

Throughout the Revolutionary War as commander in chief of the Continental Army, Washington refused to accept any pay, though he was reimbursed by Congress for expenses accrued during the war. He was reluctant even to be paid as president but was convinced by others that it would not be a good precedent for future presidents. So Congress gave Washington $25,000 a year, the largest salary in the U.S. for personal service at the time (2 percent of the national budget). It should be noted, how-

Today’s Highlight On March 8, 1917, Russia’s “February Revolution” (so called because of the Old Style calendar used by Russians at the time) began with rioting and strikes in Petrograd; the result was the abdication of the Russian monarchy in favor of a provisional government. On this date In 1702, England’s Queen Anne acceded to the throne upon the death of King William III. In 1854, U.S. Commodore Matthew C.

ever, that being president then didn’t have the thousands of perks that come with the position today, including a free mansion in which to live. For example, after staying for 16 months in New York, Washington and his wife, Martha, rented a mansion in Philadelphia (the nation’s capital before D.C.), where they lived from 1790-97. Washington had to use his salary both for official duties and to maintain his personal affairs. It was an amount that even he complained was scarcely enough. Because Washington conducted presidential business from that residence, as well, he supported a robust staff, in addition to his family. Ushistory.org notes, “In November (1790), when the presidential household moved in, there were up to 30 people living on the premises: Washington, his wife, Martha, and her grandchildren, Nelly and G.W. Parke Custis; Chief Secretary Tobias Lear, his wife, and the three male secretaries; eight enslaved Africans from Mount Vernon; and about 15 white servants.” Much is made today of Washington’s financial fortune (USA Today labeled him “the big daddy of presidential wealth”), but most overlook that his wealth was largely amassed in the Mount Vernon estate, which he inherited from his elder half brother in 1761, and in Martha’s land and slaves, inherited from her former husband. Sure, he had lots of assets, but his liquidity didn’t flow like wealthy people’s money today. Remember that back then, there was no established national banking system. Bartering and oscillating state currencies and commodities were the names of the game (until the 1792 Coinage Act), with the value of land fluctuating sharply based upon weather and crop production. As The Atlantic put it, “because there was no central banking system and no regulatory framework for commodities, markets were subject to panics in ways unknown today.” Consider that at 57 years old, Washington even had to borrow money to pay off debts and to travel to his own inauguration. 1) The No. 1 reason I wish George

Washington were still alive is that his character and leadership are so rare and desperately needed in our nation’s capital today, as much as, if not even more so than, it was in our republic’s formation. In 1797, after winning the Revolutionary War and serving two presidential ter ms in of fice, Washington finally retired to Mount Vernon at 65 years of age, but he would enjoy his rest for only two years. On Dec. 14, 1799, Washington died of a severe respiratory sickness. His beloved Martha died only three years later. In his will, he humbly and simply referred to himself as “George Washington of Mount Vernon, a citizen of the United States, and lately President of the same.” At first, the Washingtons were laid to rest in an unmarked brick tomb at Mount Vernon. But their final resting place is in a crypt there that bears the title of him who refused to be king. The engraved words over the tomb make known the title by which people knew Washington best back then — not as president but as general. The inscription reads, “Within this Enclosure Rest the remains of Gen.l George Washington.” And over the door of the inner tomb are inscribed these words from Jesus: “I am the resurrection and the life.” Washington’s good friend Henry Lee probably summarized his life, leadership and legacy best in the eulogy for the father of the United States: “First in war, first in peace and first in the hearts of his countrymen.” And so he remains — or should remain — always. God, please give the U.S. more men and women like George and Martha Washington.

Meet ‘Harvey’ at RCLT’s next production In 1950 Harvey was made into a movie starring James Stewart. Perhaps that is where you first met Harvey. Elwood P. Dowd has claimed Harvey as his best friend; he says that Harvey is a pooka, a benign but mischievous creature from Celtic mythology, who is especially fond of social outcasts. This whole attitude and relationship is very distressing to Elwood’s sister and niece. To have a normal life Elwood’s sister decides to commit her brother to an institution. Mistakes ensue. Come see the play to find out how this adventure comes out. The play was written in 1944. Mary Chase, an American playwright, received the Pulitzer Prize for Drama for the work in 1945. The first time on Broadway Harvey ran for 1,775 performances. Cast in the Roswell Community Little Theatre version are: Myrtle May Simmons (Tyler Smith), Veta Louise Simmons (Monica DesJardins), Elwood P. Dowd

Q. I am trying to find out what the “chill hours” are in the Mimbres, by San Lorenzo. Would you be able to help me with this information? I have a list of the fruit and berries that grow in our area, but I wondered if there was more information. Also, is there a map that would give me the information for our area? Grant County A. Thank you for including the information that you are located in the Mimbres. There are two San Lorenzos in New Mexico. Yours is in Grant County, the other is in Rio Arriba County! Chilling requirements of various fruit and berry plants are important and can determine whether or not you are able to produce a crop with some varieties. In your location, in the mountains, you probably have sufficient chilling conditions for most fruit varieties. Your list of fruit and berry varieties growing in your area will be a very helpful resource. Chilling units (or hours) are the number of hours of cool, non-freezing temperatures experienced during the winter. As temperatures cool and days shorten in the fall, plants become dormant. Each variety of plant has a dif ferent chilling requirement that results in the breaking of dormancy in the spring and resultant flowering. There are biochemical changes that occur in buds during the winter that, simply put, measure the length of the winter. If the winter is long enough, if there are enough chilling hours, the plant can bloom in the spring. Our fluctuating temperatures complicate matters somewhat since the tem-

peratures experienced have an effect on the biochemical changes. At temperatures below freezing, the biochemical changes stop and there is little or no measurement of the chilling. At temperatures above 50 degrees, or higher for some plants, the biochemical reactions back up and require additional chilling to overcome the period of warmth. The ideal temperatures are in the high 30 degree range. This is the temperature range at which the biochemical changes occur most rapidly and most quickly overcome dormancy. Various fruit production books and online sites can provide equations to help you calculate the chilling units accumulated by various fruit varieties at your location. You need to measure the temperatures and apply them to the equations. The specific chilling requirements for various fruit varieties are usually listed in catalogs selling these plants. Because you are in a mountainous region, a map or table of chilling hours will probably not be accurate. Your location makes a great difference in the temperatures experienced. Valley locations are different from slopes which differ from hill and mountain tops. North-facing slopes accumulate chill units at different rates than southfacing slopes. You will need to measure your daily high and low temperatures and calculate the chilling units

experienced at your orchard location. Because of your location in the Mimbres, you can probably expect most fruit and berry varieties to overcome dormancy. Mid-winter cold temperatures or spring freezes may be a more important determinant of which varieties will do best for you. Those with high chilling requirements that break dormancy and bloom later may be your best choices, but that depends on your specific environmental conditions. By the way, this information is relevant for the San Lorenzo in Rio Arriba County and most other parts of New Mexico as well, but the statements about mid-winter and spring cold is probably even more relevant.

White House tours off, Easter egg roll on for now WASHINGTON (AP) — The White House says it is going forward with plans for its 135-year tradition of the Easter egg roll, while dashing the hopes of some Iowa children who hoped to visit the president’s home. Sixth graders at St. Paul’s Lutheran School in Waverly, Iowa, had their upcoming visit canceled as the White House suspended all tours under across-the-board government spending cuts in a partisan budget battle. The disappointed class put a video on Facebook asking for the tour to be reinstated. “The White House is our house, please let us visit,” the children say in unison. The tours have become a political flashpoint along with the rest of the budget battle, with Republicans arguing the suspension is a stunt and questioning how much it will really save. Presidential press secretary Jay Carney said Thursday that the Secret Service needs to make unfortunate trade-offs like all federal agencies, and its options included canceling tours, furloughing staff or cutting overtime. “In order to allow the Secret Service to best fulfill its core mission, the White House made the decision that we would unfortunately have to temporarily suspend these tours,” Carney said after being asked to respond to the students at St.

Edmond Henry Ellis, 85, left his temporary home to be with his Savior and Lord, Jesus Christ, on March 3, 2013. Ed, or Papa Ed as he was affectionately called by many of his close friends, was born on Dec. 25, 1927, in Roswell, to Herbert and Eula Mae Ellis, who preceded him in death. Ed graduated from Roswell High School in 1945. He enlisted and served in the United States Navy in 1946 as a diesel mechanic/fireman and

He had better news for the families who won tickets to the Easter egg roll planned for April 1 on the South Lawn. The White House is expecting more than 35,000 people for the annual celebration, which began in 1878 under President Rutherford B. Hayes. An email sent in recent days notifying those who won the free ticket lottery warned that this year’s event could be called off because of the budget battle. “By reserving these tickets, you are acknowledging that this event is subject to cancellation due to funding uncertainty surrounding the Executive Office of the President and other federal agencies,” the email said. But Carney said the White House currently is moving ahead with Easter egg roll plans, even though White House officials would not rule out the possibility of a potential cancellation. The Secret Service would not comment on how many agents or how much money it budgets to handle security at the Easter egg roll, the largest annual event at the White House. But the agency did break down its math on canceling the tours, during which its officers stand in each of the rooms that are open to

Those officers are being reassigned to other duties help reduce overtime costs, the Secret Service says. Fourteen Republican senators sent the president a letter Thursday asking for the impact on White House staffing and what other cost-saving measures are being implemented. “To arbitrarily shut off access to a taxpayer funded historical building such as the White House is disappointing,” the senators wrote. As for the students at St. Paul’s, their viral video is providing a valuable lesson in civics and public engagement. Parent and school board member Karen Thalacker, a chaperone for the trip to Washington next week, said they have been overwhelmed with their messages of support and the impact they’ve had on the national debate. “We are not choosing sides. Our children are not Democrats, are not Republicans. Our children are Americans who want to visit the White House,” Thalacker said. The children also had their congressman, Democratic Rep.

Manhattan Project agent Nathan Safferstein dies at 92 NEW YORK (AP) — Nathan Saf ferstein was barely 21 when circumstances suddenly propelled him from his job as a supermarket manager into the stealth world of a counterintelligence agent on the project that produced the atomic bomb. A customer at the Connecticut market had told her brother — an Ar my intelligence commander — about a bright young prospect. Soon, paperwork was filled out, recommendations made. Wartime security being paramount, Saf ferstein eavesdropped on phone calls of scientists and

engineers in Los Alamos, N.M., to make sure no Manhattan Project secrets were leaked, and delivered bomb-making uranium and top-secret messages. He also scrawled his signature on the first Abomb, called “Little Boy,” dropped on Hiroshima, Japan, on Aug. 6, 1945. A second bomb leveled Nagasaki on Aug. 9, and Japan surrendered six days later. Safferstein died Tuesday night at his home in the Bronx after a long illness, his family said. He was 92. “We had that feeling right from day one that this was the instrument

wooded area where they met Maj. Peer DeSilva, the laboratory’s commander. “He explained to us for the first time this ultra top secret mission, that they were working on a bomb that would be able to dig a hole into the ground some 80 to a hundred feet deep and perhaps 5, 10 miles long. And that from this point on, you are in the Manhattan Project,” Safferstein recalled. Most of Saf ferstein’s activities remained a mystery to his family and friends, including his future bride, Ber nice Klein. Duty later called Saffer-

stein to the Mariana Islands in the wester n Pacific, where U.S. forces had built air fields to launch long-range raids on Japan itself, and in mid-1945 the two bombs from Los Alamos had been secretly delivered by Navy ship.

After the bombs were dropped, Saf ferstein accompanied a team that included U.S. doctors who surveyed the damage in Japan. Deeply moved by its “beautiful people,” he recalled thinking, “Let’s ... never have to use it again.”

North Korea hit by new UN sanctions after test

UNITED NATIONS (AP) — The U.N. Security Council responded swiftly to North Korea’s latest nuclear test by punishing the reclusive regime Thursday with tough, new sanctions targeting its economy and leadership, despite Pyongyang’s threat of a pre-emptive nuclear strike on the United States. The penalties came in a unanimous resolution drafted by the U.S. along with China, which is North Korea’s main benefactor. Beijing said the focus now should be to “defuse the tensions” by restarting negotiations. The resolution sent a powerful message to North Korea’s new young leader, Kim Jong Un, that the international community condemns his defiance of Security Council bans on nuclear and ballistic tests and is prepared to take even tougher action if he continues flouting international obligations. “Taken together, these sanctions will bite, and bite hard,” U.S. Ambassador Susan Rice said. “They increase North Korea’s isolation and raise the cost to North Korea’s leaders of defying the international community.” The new sanctions came in response to North Korea’s underground nuclear test on Feb. 12 and were the fourth set imposed by the U.N. since the country’s first test in 2006. They are aimed at reining in Pyongyang’s nuclear and missile develop-

ment by requiring all countries to freeze financial transactions or services that could contribute to the programs. The resolution also targets North Korea’s ruling elite by banning all nations from exporting expensive jewelry, yachts, luxury automobiles and race cars to the North. It also imposes new travel sanctions that would require countries to expel agents working for sanctioned North Korean companies. The success of the sanctions could depend on how well they are enforced by China, where most of the companies and banks that North Korea is believed to work with are based. Tensions with North Korea have escalated since Pyongyang launched a rocket in December and conducted last month’s nuclear test — the first since Kim took charge. Many countries, especially in the region, had hoped he would steer the country toward engagement and resolution of the dispute over its nuclear and missile programs. Instead, the North has escalated its threats. Immediately before the Security Council vote, a spokesman for Pyongyang’s Foreign Ministry said the North will exercise its right for “a pre-emptive nuclear attack to destroy the strongholds of the aggressors” because Washington is “set to light a fuse for a nuclear war.” The statement was carried by the

Libya women face Islamist rise Iranian leader unhappy with nuclear talks

BENGHAZI, Libya (AP) — On her way back from her job as a lecturer at a university near Tripoli, Libyan poet Aicha Almagrabi was stopped by a group of bearded militiamen. They kicked her car, beat up her driver and threatened to do the same to her. Her offense: being alone in a car with men without a male relative as a guardian. “You have violated the law of God,” the militiamen told her, Almagrabi said. “I said, I teach male students, so should I bring a male guardian with me to classroom?” she told The Associated Press. Not that the university is immune to increasingly bold conservatives’ views on the role of women. Almagrabi said one student recently told her she shouldn’t be giving lectures because a woman’s voice is “awra” — too intimate and shameful to be exposed in public. The incident in February, which ended with the militiamen allowing Almagrabi to drive home, underlined the bitter irony for women in post-revolution Libya. Women played a major role in the 8-month civil war against dictator Moammar Gadhafi, massing for protests against his regime, selling jewelry to fund rebels, smuggling weapons across enemy lines to rebels. But since Gadhafi’s fall more than 18 months ago, women have been rewarded by seeing their rights hemmed in and restricted. Women fear worse may yet to come. The country is soon to begin work drafting a new constitution, which

activists fear will enshrine the relegation of women to second-class status, given the influence of hard-line Islamists. “What we aim for right now is not to lose what we had,” said Hanan al-Noussori, a lawyer in Libya’s second biggest city, Benghazi. “I don’t know which path we are heading in. But this is a matter of life or death for us.” Women can cite any number of worrying signs. Libya’s lawlessness is in part to blame. Islamist militiamen have grown more aggressive in unilaterally imposing their own rules on women. Militias, which were initially formed from rebel brigades that battled Gadhafi’s troops, hold sway in many cities. They operate with impunity because, with national police and the army in a shambles, the state relies on them as parallel security forces. The state funds a security body made up of militias, trying to keep them loyal, but that has only made them larger and bolder. More generally, the deeply conservative nature of much of Libyan society is being expressed more freely, often impinging on women. Power ful clerics speak out against the mixing of the sexes and Libya’s political leaders themselves have set the tone for a more conservative stance on women. Almagrabi says the opening salvo came right after Gadhafi’s fall in late 2011, in one of the first addresses by then-head of state Mustafa Abdul-Jalil. He declared invalid all laws not conforming to Shariah and

specifically vowed to end limits on polygamy. Islamic law allows men to take up to four wives, if they are treated equally, but under Gadhafi men had to get court permission and often permission from their first wife to do so. “I felt like we were taken like spoils of war,” Almagrabi said. “This nation rose up for the sake of the supremacy of the law and now there is a plan to push women back into their homes.” In February, the Supreme Constitutional Court consecrated AbdulJalil’s announcement, formally ending any conditions on polygamy. In 2012, at a televised ceremony celebrating the transfer of power to a newly elected parliament, AbdulJalil ordered a young presenter, Sarah al-Massalati, to leave the hall because she was not wearing a headscarf. “We believe, respect and

emphasize personal freedoms, but we are also a Muslim nation,” Abdul-Jalil said at the time, to cheers from the audience. “I hope everyone understands these words.” Al-Massalati broke into tears. “I felt I was slaughtered,” she later told Libyan media. More recently, militiamen stormed a conference on women’s rights and the constitution, held by Magdalene Ubaida and other women rights activists in Benghazi. The gunmen detained Ubaida and two of her colleagues. When they were released and heading to the airport to return to Tripoli, they were seized by more militiamen and beaten. The incident came after one of the top security officials in Benghazi, Wanis elSharif, accused Ubaida of “spoling women” and criticizing Libya’s top Muslim official, the grand mufti.

TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — Iran’s top leader said on Thursday that the West failed to offer any concessions during the latest talks aimed at resolving a standoff over Tehran’s nuclear program. Remarks by Supreme Leader A yatollah Ali Khamenei, which were broadcast on Iranian state TV, were his first public comments on last week’s talks with the United States, China, Russia, Britain, France and Germany. “The Westerners did not do any substantial work that could be interpreted as concessions,” said Khamenei, who has final say on all state matters. “They, minimally, admitted part of (the) rights of the Iranian nation, only.” However, Khamenei showed interest in continuing the talks saying, “Iran will judge intentions of the West in the next talks.” Khamenei’s comments contrasted with the message an Iranian official conveyed at last week’s talks in Almaty, Kazakhstan. Saeed Jalili, Iran’s top official at diplomatic talks, hailed a proposal issued by the world powers, saying it represented a “turning point” that showed they were willing to compromise on Tehran’s uranium enrichment program after years of delicate negotiations that nearly dissolved last June. Iran denies that it wants nuclear weapons, saying its nuclear program is for generating energy and medical research. The proposal allows Iran to keep a limited amount of highly enriched uranium, but not make any more; stops short of demanding the full shutdown of an underground nuclear facility; and offers to remove some trade sanctions that have hurt Iran’s economy. Abbas Araghchi, Iran’s deputy foreign minister and a member of Iran’s negotiating team, said Thursday that the upcoming nuclear talks could end in an understanding. “The Islamic Republic of Iran expects the ground for achieving understanding to be paved in the next meeting,” Araghchi told foreign ambassadors in Tehran. He said Iran expects “necessary good will and flexibility” from the other side of the negotiating table. On Tuesday, Iran said the nuclear talks with world powers last week had yielded “positive results,” although it assailed “negative” remarks by some Western officials following those negotiations.

Abduction illustrates UN vulnerability Former Pistorius detective quits force JOHANNESBURG (AP) — The former lead detective in South Africa’s investigation of the murder case against Olympic athlete Oscar Pistorius has resigned from the police force, police said Thursday.

The decision by detective Hilton Botha to quit followed criticism for his bungling of the investigation into Pistorius’ shooting of his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp on Feb. 14, as well as the revelation that he faced attempted murder charges for a 2011 case in which he fired at a vehicle.

The police force as a whole came under scrutiny for the initial decision to assign Botha, a relatively junior officer, to a high-profile case involving an international celebrity. South African police practices came under more intense criticism last week after a taxi driver from Mozambique was dragged from a police vehicle and later died in detention east of Johannesburg.

Brig. Neville Malila, a police spokesman, said Botha voluntarily applied to leave the service, and said police would not divulge his reasons.

“It was his initiative. He applied for the resignation and the exit interviews were conducted with him,” Malila said. “He still maintained that he wanted to leave the service and we honored his wish.”

BEIRUT (AP) — New video Thursday of U.N. peacekeepers held captive by Syrian rebels illustrates the sudden vulnerability of a U.N. force that had patrolled a cease-fire line between Israel and Syria without incident for nearly four decades. The abduction of the Filipino troops — soft targets in Syria’s civil war — also sent a worrisome signal to Israel about the lawlessness it fears along the shared frontier if Syrian President Bashar Assad is ousted. Opposition fighters seized the 21 peacekeepers Wednesday near the Syrian village of Jamlah just a mile from the Israeli-controlled Golan Heights, a plateau Israel captured from Syria in 1967. Negotiations were under way Thursday for the release of the men, who said in videos posted online that they were being treated well. “To our family, we hope to see you soon and we are OK here,” said a peacekeeper shown in one video. He was one of three troops dressed in camouflage and blue bullet-proof vests emblazoned with the words U.N. and Philippines. However, a rebel spokesman

seemed to suggest the hostages were also serving as human shields. If the U.N. troops are released and leave the area, the regime could kill “as many as 1,000 people,” said the spokesman, who spoke via Skype and did not give his name for fear of reprisals. The peacekeepers’ abduction highlights the growing risks to U.N. staff in Syria’s escalating conflict. Fighting has spread across the country, claiming more than 70,000 lives and displacing nearly 4 million of Syria’s 22 million people. There is no sign of a breakthrough for either side, though rebels have scored some recent gains on the battlefield and in the diplomatic arena. U.N. diplomats and officials said Thursday that the capture of the 21 peacekeepers will almost certainly lead to a re-examination of security for the U.N. monitors and their patrols in the field. The U.N. mission, known as UNDOF, was set up in 1974, seven years after Israel first captured the Golan and a year after it managed to push back Syrian troops trying to recapture the territory in another

regional war. For nearly four decades, the U.N. monitors helped enforce a stable truce between Israel and Syria, making it one of the most successful U.N. missions in the world, said Timor Goksel, a Beirut-based former senior U.N. official in the region. The force has an office in Damascus and staf fs observation posts along the armistice line. The peacekeepers shuttle between Damascus and the outposts to deliver supplies and rotate crews. Goksel, who works for the Al-Monitor news website, said the observers are “soft targets” in Syria’s increasingly brutal civil war. Up to now they were “never challenged by anybody in Syria,” he added. The monitors’ success may have been linked to a decision by Assad and his father and predecessor Hafez Assad to comply with the armistice deal, including limits on military hardware allowed near the cease-fire line. Moshe Maoz, an Israeli expert on Syria, said the U.N. mission’s success was largely due to the Assads’ decision to abide by the truce.

Lucas says ‘Star Wars’ trio returning for new film NEW YORK (AP) — It appears the Force is still strong with Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher. In an interview posted online Thursday, George Lucas said the trio from the original “Star Wars” trilogy will reprise their iconic roles

of Hans Solo, Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia in the new “Star Wars” film. Lucas told Bloomberg Businessweek that all three were signed for the new “Episode VII” film in advance of Lucasfilm’s $4 billion purchase by Disney. “We had already signed

Mark and Carrie and Harrison — or were pretty much in the final stages of negotiation,” Lucas said. He added: “Maybe I’m not supposed to say that. I think they want to announce that with some big whoop-de-do.” In an interview posted

Hotel Pennsylvania to be renovated, not razed NEW YORK (AP) — New York’s famed Hotel Pennsylvania is safe from the wrecking ball, rescued by the economy rather than preservationists. Plans to knock down the nearly century-old hotel, where jazz great Glenn Miller and his orchestra broadcast in the 1940s, and replace it with a 67-story office tower are “on the shelf,” said Steven Roth, chairman of the Vornado Realty T rust, which has owned the building since 1998. Although City Council approval of zoning changes for a tower to replace the 1,700-room hotel remains valid, the weak economy has led Vor nado to switch gears. “It’s an interesting option to have, but it’s not possible today,” Roth said at an investor conference earlier this week. “We’re not going to tear down the hotel. In fact, we’re going to invest in it aggres-

sively and try to make it into a really profitable, really good hotel.” Vornado declined to provide additional infor mation about its plans for the building. Roth, who will assume the additional role of CEO at Vornado on April 15, said the company is close to finding a partner and principal developer to help restore some of the hotel’s for mer grandeur. While its lobby retains traces of its origins and it still has the “Pennsylvania 6-5000” phone number made famous by Miller’s orchestra, the Hotel Pennsylvania is now a budget-priced destination with a less-than-luxurious reputation among tourists. The hotel averages 2 1/2-star reviews on travel websites and has been known for bed bugs, a common problem in Manhattan hotels.

Wednesday with Florida’s Palm Beach Illustrated, Fisher said that she’ll be coming back as Princess Leia. Disney’s Lucasfilm was coy in response. In a statement, a spokesperson for the company said, “George couldn’t say whether they

were signed or not and neither can we. As Yoda said, ‘Always in motion is the future.’ Stay tuned.” The Walt Disney Co. is producing a new “Star Wars” trilogy to take place after Lucas’ original three space epics. J.J. Abrams is directing the first film. The

70-year -old Ford, the 61year-old Hamill and the 56year-old Fisher are expected to play smaller, supporting roles. A representative for Ford declined to comment. Hamill’s representatives didn’t immediately return requests for comment.

Roswell Daily Record

DORAL, Fla. (AP) — T iger Woods was on his game, and so were most of the world best golfers Thursday in the Cadillac Championship. Except for the world’s No. 1 player. Woods made nine birdies on the Blue Monster at Doral for a 6-under 66 that put him in a five-way share of the lead with Masters champion Bubba Watson, former U.S. Open champion Graeme McDowell, Sergio Garcia and Freddie Jacobson. This World Golf Championship lived up to its name with Phil Mickelson, Steve Stricker and Hunter Mahan among those one shot behind. But it was another rough day for Rory McIlroy. He hit only three fairways and made six bogeys that kept him at par or worse on a perfect day for scoring. Despite making a 15foot eagle putt on the par-5 first hole, and lacing a 5-iron over the water for another eagle attempt on the par-5 eighth that narrowly missed, the best he could manage was a 73. McIlroy has yet to break par this year. “It was a bit of a struggle, to be honest,” McIlroy said to Sky

Sports. “Hit some good shots. Hit some not-so-good shots. As I’ve been saying all week, this is a work in progress and I’m working at it and I’m staying patient.” He declined to speak to reporters, grabbing a quick lunch and smiling at screaming fans who wanted his autograph as he headed to the practice range. McIlroy played alongside Woods and Luke Donald — Nos. 1, 2 and 3 in the world — and while this essentially is a home game for Woods having won three times at Doral, the occasional shouts of “You’re the real No. 1, Tiger” rang true. Coming off a pedestrian perfor mance a week ago at the Honda Classic, Woods looked sharp in most aspects of his game, except for a few lapses with his chipping. He wasted two early birdies with a three-putt bogey on the 13th hole and a delicate flop shot that he flubbed on the 14th, leading to another bogey. His chip up the slope on the third didn’t reach the green for another bogey. That’s all that was wrong. He holed two long birdie putts, including a sliding, slippery putt from about 40 feet on the par-3

fourth hole, and missed four reasonable chances inside 15 feet. His final birdie was on the par-5 eighth, when he had to lay up from a fairway bunker and hit a wedge that stopped 2 feet from the hole. “It was certainly a day that could have been a little lower,” said Woods, who was selected for random drug testing after his round. Just about everyone could say that in these conditions. Garcia and McDowell were in the same group. Not only did they have bogey-free rounds, both birdied the same four holes. Jacobson made two eagles in a span of three holes, both times hitting a 5-wood onto the green to just over 12 feet. Watson played in the group with Mickelson and Stricker, and they were a collective 16-under par. Stricker had a chance to tie for the lead except he missed a 4foot birdie putt on the final hole. Mickelson, as usual, kept it entertaining. He pulled his tee shot on the 17th hole and his ball stopped rolling after it traveled some 450 yards. He pur-

Broncos look to Dumervil for cap relief Local briefs: RHS falls to Carlsbad DENVER (AP) — The Broncos are asking defensive end Elvis Dumervil to take a pay cut so they can create more salary cap room for free agency. Dumervil signed a six-year, $61.5 million contract in 2010 when Josh McDaniels was coaching the team and before John Elway joined the Denver front office. The seven-year veteran is s ch ed u le d to ma k e $ 1 2 m i ll i o n in 2013. The team wants Dumervil to take a c u t o r r es tr uc tu r e h i s c o n tr a ct , according to a person familiar with the situation, who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because details of the negotiations were not public. The Denver Post first reported about the team’s request.

Dumervil had 11 sacks last season, second on the team behind Von Miller. Dumervil led the league with 17 sacks in 2009. The Broncos need more cap space while trying to shore up their interior defensive line, cornerback and running back positions. Peyton Manning will earn $20 million in 2013 and if the Broncos had Dumervil play at his cu r r en t n um be r, t h o se t wo wou ld account for more than a quarter of their cap space. Among the pass rushers on the market this season include Manning’s former teammate with the Colts, Dwight Freeney. Dumervil’s agent, Marty Magid, did not immediately respond to an email message from the AP.

Durant scored 12 in the final period while Westbrook was shut out, hitting a pair from the line with 1:38 to play that made it 95-94. Smith missed a 3-pointer but the Knicks had a final chance after Durant was off on a jumper with about 9 seconds to go. Smith got the ball in about the same spot where he had hit a winning

throws. From there, the Buffs cruised to the victory as they reached the 20-win mark for the seventh times in school history, including three straight seasons under coach Tad Boyle. Colorado beat Oregon 48-47 last month, snapping the Ducks’ 20-game home court winning streak. This was the Buffs’ second sweep of a league foe this season, taking two from Stanford as well. Askia Booker also added 11 points as Colorado improved to 12-2 at Coors Events Center this season. Roberson was reduced to the role spectator, clapping on the bench at his team’s high-energy performance as he missed just his third start since his freshman year. Even without Roberson, the Buffs still outrebounded the Ducks by a 38-35 margin. The Ducks had a week off after beating Oregon State to close out a 17-2

campaign at home this season. The break was especially beneficial for freshman guard Damyean Dotson, who fell hard to the court against the Beavers and had to be carried off the court with a hip injury. Dotson was held to five points against CU. The Ducks couldn’t find any sort of offensive rhythm, shooting just 37.5 percent from the floor and going 9 of 22 from the free throw line. Broncos boss John Elway showed up moments after tip and took a seat in the first row opposite the Buffs’ bench. At halftime, Elway had a brief chat with CU athletic direction Mike Bohn, who presented the Hall of Fame QB with a basketball. Elway dribbled it around for several minutes, even palming the ball, before sitting back down. Later in the game, Elway tossed it into the crowd with a mighty heave.

sometime before the Knicks visit Denver next Wednesday for his long-awaited first trip back since the Nuggets traded him in February 2011. In the meantime, the Knicks showed again they've got enough guys to compete without him — but not enough to beat a top team like the Thunder. Raymond Felton and Amare Stoudemire each had 16 points for the Knicks, who were playing their fourth game in five nights against the rested and much more athletic Thunder.

Woods played two rounds with him at Abu Dhabi to start the year, and they were frequent playing partners during the FedEx Cup playoffs last year. Woods said McIlroy looked “just a little bit defensive” with his swing. “That happens, and we

When you play golf for a very long time, you’re going to have spells like this. You can’t play well every week, even though you try.

a starter in 1995, soon became a setup man and quickly blossomed into a dominant closer. His emergence from the bullpen to the blaring strains of Metallica’s “Enter Sandman” was a fan favorite at the old Yankee Stadium, and the tradition carried over the team’s new ballpark. Rivera also is the only — and last — big leaguer who wears No. 42. The number was retired in 1997 in tribute to Jackie Robinson, although players who had the number at the time were allowed to keep it.

Teixeira confident Yankees can overcome injuries

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Mark Teixeira is confident the New York Yankees can overcome key injuries likely to impact the team through the first month of the regular season. The first baseman will be out until at least early May with a strained right wrist tendon, the latest major setback for the Yankees. New York outfielder Curtis Granderson broke his right forearm when he was hit by a pitch Feb. 24, and also will be sidelined until early May. “It’s going to be more of a challenge now that both of us are down, but I have full confidence that the guys coming in are going to be able to step in,” Teixeira said during a conference call on Thursday. Teixeira felt tightness swinging a weighted bat left-handed off a tee Tuesday in an indoor cage during pregame warm-ups with the U.S. team for the World Baseball Classic. “It’s really weird ... it’s the same thing I do every day,” said

Teixeira, who will no longer use the weighted bat. T eixeira expects to resume limited drills — swinging a batone handed and fielding grounders — in the next week or two. “It’s very disappointing,” Teixeira said. “The only good thing is that it’s March. I have plenty of time to get healthy and hopefully have as long of a season as I can. We’re not exactly sure how long it’s going to take, but better to get hurt now than April 5.” He said surgery will not be required. “The problem is, the doctors told me it’s a classic baseball injury,” Teixeira said. “An overuse injury where I just have to let it heal. It’s not one of those things I can play through. I can’t play at 70 or 80 percent because you have the opportunity of completely tearing it and then you will need surgery.” Manager Joe Girardi said he hoped for the best. “Wrists are tricky,” he said.

Michigan State beats Wisconsin 58-43

EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Keith Appling scored 14 of his 19 points in the second half to help No. 10 Michigan State pull away to beat No. 22 Wisconsin 58-43 on Thursday night and stay in the Big Ten race. The Spartans (23-7, 12-5) moved into a three-way tie for second with Michigan and Ohio State. The trio trails conferenceleading Indiana with one game left in the regular season. The Hoosiers can claim the Big Ten title outright with a win Sunday in Ann Arbor against the Wolverines. If they lose, Michigan would earn piece of the title and give Michigan State and the Buckeyes a shot to pull into a four-way tie. The Spartans close the regular season Sunday at home against Northwestern after Ohio State hosts Illinois. The Badgers (20-10, 11-6) fell to fifth place with the decisive road loss after Purdue handed them their most lopsided setback at home in more than seven years. Michigan State broke open a close slugfest with a 16-0 run early in the second half, taking a 21-point lead on Appling's threepoint play. The junior point guard had been held to single digits in each of the last three games, all losses, but bounced back in a big way. Appling scored more points against the Badgers than he scored in the previous three games combined. And much to the delight of coach T om Izzo, the Spartans showed some grit against the hard-nosed Badgers. Adreian Payne landed on his back after missing a dunk and while on the floor in pain, he grabbed a loose ball and called timeout. Izzo greeted Payne with a huge hug near the sideline and the crowd stood to give the junior forward a

rousing ovation. Michigan State freshman Gary Harris, who started the night leading the team in scoring, was scoreless in the first half on 0-of6 shooting and finished with 11 points. Payne had nine points and 10 rebounds. Wisconsin didn't have a scorer in double digits until Ben Brust made two free throws with 1:22 left to reach 10 points. The first half, perhaps predictably, was not pretty. Both teams missed exactly twothirds of their shots, and not one player had more than six points by halftime. Wisconsin had eight turnovers in the first half, almost matching its nation-low average of 9.4, and finished with 17 turnovers. The Spartans maintained the lead until Mike Bruesewitz made a 3-pointer to put Wisconsin ahead 12-10 with 9:09 left in the first half. The Badgers were scoreless for almost 6 minutes, but their deficit was never larger than eight points in the first half. T ravis T rice's 3-pointer just before the halftime buzzer put Michigan State up 25-18. After Jared Berggren opened the second half with a shot that pulled the Badgers within five points, they went more than 7 minutes without a point. The Spartans took advantage, building a 41-20 lead on Appling's three-point play. By the time Wisconsin finally scored again, on freshman Sam Dekker's first field goal with about 12 minutes to go, it was too late. In a 49-47 loss to Michigan State in January, the Badgers made just 29.6 percent of their shots for their lowest mark in almost two years. They shot slightly worse in the rematch.

“They said he was going to be back in 10 weeks. That was the diagnosis we got, eight to 10 weeks. You never know when you are coming back from a wrist. Sometimes there is a setback.” “I have to manage day by day, like I always do. When I get him back and when Curtis comes back, it obviously changes our lineup. Until then I have to manage as if they are not there,” he said. The Yankees don’t appear likely to move Kevin Youkilis from third to first. Youkilis was signed in December to fill in for third baseman Alex Rodriguez, who will be out until at least the AllStar break after left hip surgery in January. Youkilis said he’s willing to play wherever he’s needed. “Put me out there and I’ll go play,” Youkilis said. “I just want to win. Whatever is going to make the team win is where I’m going to play.” Youkilis believes the Yankees

can overcome the loss of power at the plate. Granderson, Teixeira and Rodriguez combined for 85 homers last season. “I’ve seen a lot of talk about the home runs and losing all the home runs,” Youkilis said. “It was a funny thing, (I said today) I’m going to go check out the Giants, the World Series champions, and they had 103 total home runs last year. I played on a team last year with six guys hitting over 20 home runs, the White Sox, and we didn’t make the playoffs.” Several other Yankees, including shortstop Derek Jeter (ankle surgery), ace CC Sabathia (left elbow bone spur surgery) and closer Mariano Rivera (knee surgery) are coming back from injuries. Jeter, who had a day of f Thursday, hasn’t run the bases at full speed yet. The team captain expects to be ready for the season opener April 1 against Boston Sabathia, the expected open-

ing-day starter, threw a 49-pitch bullpen session and is scheduled for a simulated game Sunday. The left-hander said he is pleased with how well his elbow has responded. “I am surprised how quick it came back once I started throwing,” Sabathia said. “Getting stronger every time out and not feeling any pain is encouraging.” Rivera, expected to announce Saturday that he’ll retire after this season, could make his first spring training appearance this weekend. Right-hander Phil Hughes made 15 pitches from 60 feet on level ground during his fourth throwing session after being sidelined two weeks by an upper back bulging disk. Reliever David Robertson, scratched from his outing Tuesday night because of a sore shoulder, played catch. Left-hander Boone Logan, slowed by a tender elbow, resumed throwing and made 38 throws from up to 60 feet.

Miami has 1 more chance to clinch ACC CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP) — The Miami Hurricanes’ finale in the Atlantic Coast Conference race will determine whether their late-season losses are remembered as a mere stumble or an epic collapse. That sounds like a lot of pressure. “We just want to try to keep it as another game,” senior Kenny Kadji said Thursday. “It’s going to be an emotionally tense moment,” senior Julian Gamble conceded. “Wait a minute,” coach Jim Larranaga said. “I just think it’s college basketball.” Larranaga wants to avoid making too much of the No. 6ranked Hurricanes’ recent slump. After winning their first 13 league games, they’ve lost three of the past four, including consecutive defeats when they had a chance to clinch the ACC title outright. They still have one more shot when they play host to Clemson on Saturday afternoon. And they could back into the outright title if second-place Duke loses Saturday night at North Carolina. Larranaga said the Hurricanes should be thrilled with their situation. After all, he said, they’re already assured of at least a title share, and they’ve clinched the No. 1 seeding in the ACC tournament. “We have one game remaining,” he said. “If someone asked you before the conference race began, would you like to be a game up on Duke and two games up on North Carolina and sitting in first place with a home game to close out the regular season, I think everybody would say yes, that would be a fantastic year.” But the year’s not quite as fantastic lately. For two games in a row, ACC champion T shirts for the players have remained boxed.

Miami's Shane Larkin, left, passes the ball against Virginia Tech's Joey van Zegeren during the first half of their game, Wednesday.

On Wednesday, Miami (23-6, 14-3) squandered a 13-point lead in the second half and lost to Georgia Tech 71-69 on a tipin at the buzzer. “It’s bitter,” senior Trey McKinney Jones said, “but we have to have a short memory.” Clemson (13-16, 5-12) gave Miami a scare but lost 45-43 on Feb. 17. The Hurricanes won with defense that night, and a lot of other nights. But in their recent losses they’ve allowed 80, 79 and 71 points, with all three opponents shooting at least 52 percent. “Definitely it’s about our defense,” McKinney Jones said. “Early in the ACC, we locked down defensively. That was our forte. We have to get back to doing that. “Maybe we relaxed a little bit,

which is not a good thing. These last few games have been eyeopeners. We’re going to definitely take care of business the rest of the season.” Larranaga said opponents are wearing down the Hurricanes’ biggest players — 6-11 Kadji, 610 Gamble and 6-10 Reggie Johnson — by forcing them to cover ball screens on the perimeter. “They’re making our big guys come away from the basket and play ball screens multiple times in a single possession,” Larranaga said. “You’re like an accordion — you’re out and in and out and in. It’s very challenging.” Johnson’s play has declined during the slump. He has shot 4 for 19 over the past four games and committed three turnovers in 15 minutes against Tech.

father is my absolute best friend. I have to be strong for my mother. I want to scream and cry and sometimes lash out, but my inner adult (I’m 26) tells me that would be immature. I don’t feel like I have come to terms with my father’s illness. Although I know what is eventually to come, I have yet to feel any emotion, good or bad. I’m not sure if I’m blocking it or if I’m being the strongwilled adult I was raised to be by my father and best friend. I was never raised with the “men don’t cry” or “be strong for your mother” concept. Am I repressing my emotions? And if so, is there anything I can do to start dealing with this?

DEAR JUST: All people do not react to bad news in the same way — crying, screaming or lashing out. Some go numb for a period of time, until they are ready to process their emotions. Part of your problem may be that because you’re incarcerated, you feel helpless. Not knowing whether psychologi-

DEAR ABBY: I am the mother of a “yours, mine and ours” family. Between us, my husband and I have six children. I have been “Mom” for his three children since the oldest was 6. Fifteen years have passed, and I raised all of them as my own. Because the stress of such a large family has taken its toll at times, I have said I couldn’t wait until everyone was 18 and out of the house. Three of the children are on their own now and three remain. The youngest is 14. I recently took my 18-year -old son to the Air Force recruiter to take his entrance test and as I watched him walk into the building, I started to cry. I realized I don’t really want them to go away. I have been a parent since I was 17, and now — at 40 — I’m having a

hard time imagining life without them. I’m afraid of having only my husband to keep me occupied. There has never been a time without kids around. I’m afraid it’ll be like starting our relationship all over again, and he may not like what he sees. How can I get past the fear of not being needed or wanted anymore? ALMOST EMPTY-NESTED IN VERMONT

DEAR ALMOST EMPTY-NESTED:

Instead of allowing fear or anxiety to drag you down, look at the bright side. Your nest will be full for four more years — and if there is something about yourself that you see that YOU don’t like, there is plenty of time to do something about it.

You are more than “just” a mother. Because your responsibilities as a parent have lightened, use the time to broaden your horizons and develop some mutual interests with your husband that you couldn’t before. Sometimes we can be our own harshest critics — so be a little kinder to yourself and consider what I have said. It is heartfelt.

Dear Heloise: I have an idea that may help people when MAILING PACKAGES. The great boxes you get through purchases (coffeepots, etc.) are free and relatively easy to turn inside out. If glued, use a knife and carefully open the seam. If put together by tabs and no glue, just reassemble using packing tape. The inside of the boxes are blank, so there are no advertisements or UPCs to block out. Just address and mail. No wrapping necessary. Hope this idea saves the purchase of mailing boxes.

Dear Readers: Traveling with kids can be a struggle, but coloring kits can keep most kids occupied for a while. Paper, pencils and crayons are simple and fun; however, it’s no fun when a stray marker or pen slips between the seats. How about making a coloring kit that the kids can’t lose pieces of? You’ll need: * A small cookie sheet * Markers, crayons, colored pencils, etc. (whichever you prefer) * A notebook or coloring book * Magnetic tape (you can find this at most home-improvement or craft stores) * Instant glue * Scissors Cut a few pieces of magnetic tape, and glue one to each crayon or marker. Cut a few larger strips to glue to the back of the notebook/coloring book. Attach to your cookie sheet, and voila! No matter how the kids set them in the tray, they will stay attached! Heloise

Stocks gain for fifth day on unemployment report Roswell Daily Record

NEW YORK (AP) — The Dow pushed further into record territory Thursday, having surpassed its previous all-time high two days ago. The catalyst was the latest evidence that hiring is picking up. Stocks started higher after the Labor Department reported that the number of Americans seeking unemployment aid fell by 7,000 last week, driving the four-week average to its lowest in five years. The Dow Jones industrial average rose 33.25 points, or 0.2 percent, to 14,329.49. The Standard & Poor’s 500 gained 2.80 points, or 0.2 percent, to 1,544.26. Both indexes rose for the fifth day straight. The Dow barreled through a record high Tuesday and has added to its gains since then. The S&P 500 is also closing in on its own record high of 1,565, which was also reached on Oct. 9, 2007, the same day of the Dow’s previous peak. The S&P would need to rise 21 points, or 1.3 percent, to set a record. Investors have been buying stocks on optimism that employers are slowly starting to hire again and that the housing market is recovering. Growing company earnings are also encouraging investors to get into the market. The Dow is 9.4 percent higher this year and the broader S&P 500 is up 8.3 percent. “If you have a multi-year time horizon, equities are an attractive asset, but don’t

Boeing gained Thursday, advancing $1.97, or 2.5 percent, to $81.05 following reports that U.S. regulators were poised to approve a plan within days to allow the plane maker to begin test flights of its 787 Dreamliner. The 787 fleet has been grounded since Jan. 16 because of safety concerns about the plane’s batteries. Twenty stocks in the 30-member index advanced.

The Federal Reserve will release the results of its annual stress test for banks after the market closes Thursday. Financial stocks advanced amid speculation that banks will have amassed enough capital to be able to return more cash to shareholders. Bank of America had the largest percentage gain in the Dow, rising 34 cents, or 2.9 percent, to $12.26, with JPMorgan Chase in third spot, gaining 60 cents, or 1.2 percent, to $50.63. Jeffery Saut, chief investment strategist at Raymond James, predicted that any sell-off in stocks may be short-lived as investors who have missed out on the rally since the start of the year jump into the market.

the first quarter,” said Aaron Smith, senior economist at Moody’s Analytics. Household wealth, or net worth, reflects the value of assets like homes, stocks and bank accounts minus debts like mortgages and credit cards. National home prices have extended their gains this year. And the Standard & Poor’s 500 index, a broad gauge of the stock market, has surged 8 percent since Jan. 1. Some economists caution that the recovered wealth might spur less consumer spending than it did before the recession. Dana Saporta, an economist at Credit Suisse, notes that the value of home equity Americans are cashing out has fallen 90 percent in six years. And since the housing bust, when home values fell broadly for the first time in decades, many homeowners are skeptical

that higher prices will last, Saporta said. They won’t necessarily spend more as a result. The rebound in wealth has benefited mostly wealthier Americans. The Dow Jones industrial average has just set a record high, and roughly 80 percent of stocks are held by the richest 10 percent of households. And for the past five years, middle-class Americans have sold stocks and missed out on much of the rebound. In the October December quarter, Americans dumped nearly $466 billion in stocks and bought $229 billion in bonds, the Fed’s report showed. For most middle-class Americans, home equity is their largest source of wealth. National home values remain about 30 percent below their peak.

be surprised to see some volatility, especially after the big run we’ve had,” said Michael Sheldon, chief market strategist at RDM Financial Group.

US household wealth rebounds

WASHINGTON (AP) — Surging stock prices and steady home-price increases have finally allowed Americans to regain the $16 trillion in wealth they lost to the Great Recession. The gains are helping support the economy and could lead to further spending and growth. Household wealth amounted to $66.1 trillion at the end of 2012, the Federal Reserve said Thursday. That was $1.2 trillion more than three months earlier and 98 percent of the pre-recession peak. Further increases in stock and home prices this year mean that Americans’ net worth has since topped the pre-recession peak of $67.4 trillion, private economists say. Wealth had bottomed at $51.4 trillion in early 2009. “It’s all but certain that we surpassed that peak in

Facebook’s News Feed feature gets makeover

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg speaks at Facebook headquarters in Menlo Park, Calif., Thursday.

MENLO PARK, Calif. (AP) — Facebook is trying to breathe new life into its social network with a redesign of its News Feed. Amid complaints that company’s site has become a jumble of monotonous musings and random pictures, the overhaul offers new controls that allow people to create streams of photos and other material in organized sections. With the makeover, which began rolling out Thursday, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg hopes to turn the News Feed into something more like a newspaper custom-made to suit the particular interests for each of the social network’s more than 1 billion worldwide users. With the new features users will be able to choose to see feeds that may feature nothing but photos or exclusively see posts from their closest friends, family members or favorite businesses. Or they can just peruse content about music, or sports, as if they were grabbing the section of a newspaper. Other newspaper -like changes will include lists of events that their social circles have flagged for the upcoming weekend and other summaries meant to resemble a table of contents. By adding more personal touches, Facebook is acknowledged that the computer -generated formulas that it has been using to determine the content shown to each user have become less effective as the social circles within its network have widened to include a more diverse array of information. “This gives people more power to dig deeper into the topics they care about,” Zuckerberg said while discussing the makeover at Facebook’s Menlo Park,

Calif. headquarters. Facebook still intends to rely on algorithms to select some of material to feature on the main part of the News Feed, much like newspaper editors determine what goes on the front page. More space on the News Feed’s front page and other sections space will be devoted to pictures and video in recognition of how dominant those visual elements have become on Facebook as smartphones and tablet computers equipped with high-quality cameras have made it easier to share snapshots and clips. About 50 percent of the posts on News Feed include a photo or video now, up from 25 percent in late 2011, Zuckerberg said. The changes to News Feed are meant to make Facebook a more fun place to hang out and avoid turning into an Internet has-been like other once trendy social networks such as Friendster and MySpace. Although Facebook’s website remains one of the Internet’s top destinations, there have been early signs that the social network is losing some of its pizazz, particularly among younger Web surfers who are starting to spend more time on other fraternizing hubs such as Tumblr, Pinterest and Instagram, a photo-sharing site that Facebook bought last year. The phenomenon, known as “Facebook Fatigue,” was recently documented in a report from Pew Research Center’s Internet and American Life Project. The study found that about 61 percent of Facebook users had taken a hiatus for reasons that range from boredom to too much irrelevant information to Lent.
