City Council to discuss e-cigs, Legion liquor license JILL MCLAUGHLIN RECORD STAFF WRITER

Newly elected Mayor Dennis Kintigh and city councilors will meet for a regular City Council meeting tonight to discuss issuing a club liquor license to the American Legion and a ban on electronic cigarettes. Council will discuss taking a first step to amend the city’s Clean Air Ordinance to include banning electronic smoking devices in public places.

Lock of love

Councilors are expected to decide whether to publish the ordinance in the newspaper so a public hearing can be held in April. The Building and Lands Committee approved the ordinance amendment in February, allowing it to be considered by council. Councilor Steve Henderson proposed the idea, saying he felt e-cigarettes contained a vapor with nicotine. The battery-powered devices vaporize a nicotine-

filled liquid that can be flavored. They are often used as an alternative to traditional cigarettes.

Henderson said allowing e-cigarettes in public places, where cigarettes are banned per city ordinance, was objectionable.

“A number of communities have already taken action on this deal,” Henderson told the committee in February. “It’s a big problem and I think we owe our citizens the same right under the tobacco ordinance.”

Henderson has worked on the issue with City Attorney Barbara Patterson since November, he said.

The city’s proposed amendment to the Clean Air Ordinance would change the definition of “smoking” to include electronic smoking devices.

According to the council staff report: “Recent studies show that electronic smoking devices, such as e-cigarettes, emit nicotine in their expelled vapor. To continue keeping Roswell a clean-air city, the need to

Prison ministry event set for weekend RANDAL SEYLER RECORD STAFF WRITER

Johnny Gonzales will bring his prison ministry back to Roswell Correctional Center this weekend with the help of about 100 volunteers. Prison Door Ministries holds its annual tent ministry for the hundreds of inmates at the state correctional center, bringing a bit of light to the incarcerated. “I have been doing this for over 20 years, and every year it is really special,” Gonzales said on Friday. “We try to reach out, heart to heart, with the people who are incarcerated here at the Roswell Correctional Center.” Gonzales said this year’s event will kickoff at 6:30 p.m. on Friday with an appreciation dinner for volunteers and inmate families

at Los Cerritos Mexican Kitchen in Roswell. The ministry is a cooperation of many churches and about 100 individuals who work for two days under a great tent to see men come to the Lord, Gonzales said. “We couldn’t do this without all the volunteers who come out year after year,” Gonzales said. “We share the Lord with the prisoners, bring them some cookies and Kool-Aid, and give them some fellowship.” Gonzales said the people who are often forgotten in prison ministry are the families of the inmates, and that is why he hopes to include them in the appreciation dinner as well. “These are just regular people, they go to work every day, and they are no different than you or me. They just happen to have a

son, or a daughter, or a spouse who is in prison.” The incarceration of an individual often times means hardships for the family, especially if that individual is the family’s breadwinner, Gonzales says. “Sometimes, the families are the forgotten victims of crimes,” Gonzales said. “One of the goals of our ministry is to help the families as well as the inmates.” “The New Mexico Corrections Department appreciates the hard work and dedication of our faithful volunteers who serve our incarcerated and those returning from prison to the community,” Homer Gonzales, New Mexico Corrections Department volunteer services and faith-based program coordinator, states on the corrections department website,

Kintigh is also expected to elect a new mayor protem at the meeting. Former mayor pro-tem, Councilor Barry Foster, was defeated in the recent election by new Councilor Tabitha Denny.

ban the use of electronic smoking devices in public places is necessary.” The public hearing would be scheduled for April 10. In other expected action, councilors are scheduled to hear an application from the American Legion Post 28, on North Montana, for a new club liquor license. The organization’s club is located in a community commercial district and has been granted preliminary approval by the state Alcohol and Gaming Division.

Fidel Alarcon is dying. The 27-year-old Roswell man’s liver is shutting down, and doctors do not know if he has weeks, or days, left before his condition claims his life. “He’s very well-known by the people of the community,” said his mother, Andrea Tafoya, a retired Roswell middle school teacher. “He grew up here and he worked for years at the north Sonic and at the


Taco Bell on West Hobbs.” Alarcon graduated from Roswell High School in 2004, and he has worked his entire adult life here in his hometown — until January 2013, when he was diagnosed with liver failure. “If a transplant doesn’t come through in time, he is going to perish,” Tafoya said. “The doctors can’t say if he has days or weeks left, this is progressing so fast. “The doctors don’t really know what is happening, or why it happened so


fast,” Tafoya said. “They have him on the emergency list for a liver transplant, but we don’t know if that will happen in time.” Alarcon began feeling ill in 2013, and after several doctors’ visits, it was discovered that his liver was failing following an MRI. In the past 12 months, Alarcon’s condition has worsened, and one of his kidneys has also failed. “They can’t do a kidney transplant until after his liver is replaced, and he can’t do kidney dialysis, because it would kill him,”

Obama wants overtime pay for more salaried workers WASHINGTON (AP) — Bypassing Congress, President Barack Obama intends to order changes in overtime rules so employers would be required to pay millions more workers for the extra time they put in on the job.

Obama’s attention to overtime dovetails with his emphasis on correcting wage disparities, a theme that he has said will be central to the remainder of his presidential ter m. It also serves his political ends during a midter m election year, giving him a populist issue along with his calls for a higher minimum wage and better pay for women.

President Barack Obama listens during his meeting with Ukraine Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk in the Oval Office of the White House Wednesday. Obama is seeking changes in overtime rules that will make millions of workers eligible for time-and-a-half pay for their extra work. Obama intends to sign a presidential memorandum on March 13 directing the Department of Labor to propose rules that expand the number of employees who benefit from overtime pay.

The rules, which would not likely take effect until 2015, are aimed at workers currently designated as supervisory employees but who are exempt from overtime because they get paid a salary of more than $455 a week. Obama plans to order his Labor Department to recommend regulations that would increase that salary threshold and change the definition of what constitutes a supervisor.

ALBUQUERQUE (AP) — A Massachusetts Institute of Technology study on the potential impacts of the SunZia transmission line on White Sands Missile Range validates concerns over the project, a state lawmaker said Tuesday. Speaking to reporters on a conference call, Rep. Steve Pearce, R-Hobbs, said the study proves key U.S. Department of Defense concerns that the proposed 500-mile transmission project could interfere with missile tests. “The last thing New Mexico wants to do is shutdown 30 percent” of the

missile range’s mission, which the study showed would occur, Pearce said. “This would impact the missions of Holloman Air Force base as well and we could lose them both.” White Sands has said that if the project is approved as is, it could reduce testing operations at the missile range by up to 30 percent, potentially threatening national security. That also could mean layof fs at White Sands, which employs thousands and has an estimated $834 million annual economic impact in New Mexico.

However, the SunZia project, which would carry renewable energy from solar and wind projects in eastern and central New Mexico to Wester n markets, is expected to generate $1.2 billion in private investment. Pearce’s assessment counters the study’s interpretation from SunZia project manager T om Wray. He pointed to the study that said, although electromagnetic interference could affect certain missile guidance systems, no problems would occur if missiles remain at least 200 feet from lines.

“The right of way around lines is 200 feet and the electromagnetic strength at the edge of that right of way is almost negligible,” Wray told the Albuquerque Journal. “So the study didn’t conclude that that’s a problem.”

vehicle registration and later executed a search warrant of Cordoba-Lopez’s Dexter home as the RPD attempted to locate him. Stevenson said the view of the intersection traveling from south to north was unobstructed and the posted speed limit then was 45 mph. The third witness for the state, Rosalind Archuleta of the Department of Public Safety DNA Laboratory, discussed the results of the swabs, which included those taken from both inside and outside the Escalade and compared them against those taken at Chaves County Detention Center from CordobaLopez. Expert witness Sgt. Lauren Milligan, of the New Mexico State Police, testified to the findings from the “black box” copied from the Escalade’s crash data recorder. He said investigators obtained laser measure-

ments to ascertain that the Sonata had been in the right turn lane at the time of impact. He then clarified the mechanism by which the information could be obtained from the airbag controls and rollover sensors inside the vehicle. “They monitor safety sensations running constantly in low sleep mode. ... If something changes drastically, it will record what happens and goes backward to measure throttle and braking, speed … A magnet in the airbag measures change of speed.” Milligan estimated the speed the Escalade was traveling at the time of impact was somewhere between 85 and 102 mph. The change in speed when the vehicle hit the Sonata according to the CDR was 30 mph; the subsequent speed of the Escalade after the crash, which was then spinning on its roof, was 60 mph. He said adding the two

suggested the vehicle was going about 90 mph. Meanwhile, the Hyundai driven by Miranda was traveling about 13 to 20 mph. He also noted that for a period of about one-half second before impact, the CDR recorded no pressure on the accelerator. Milligan believed Cordoba-Lopez was trying to brake at that time. According to Milligan, the direction of impact was straight on, although the Escalade was slightly to the left of the right hand turn lane, indicating that it was straddling the line. “The larger, faster Escalade hit the smaller, slower vehicle. ... Essentially, you have this explosion. The damage to the Hyundai was catastrophic. The Escalade had just enough momentum to force the Hyundai into the ground.” He explained that the position slightly to the left of the Sonata unbalanced the Escalade causing it to

The president’s directive, to be announced Thursday, leaves the details of a proposed rule to the Labor Department, which is not expected to come up with a recommendation before the fall. Still, it drew swift protests from Republicans who complained he was sidestepping Congress and

from the business community, who said such rules would increase burdens on employers. “How does he expect us to work with him?” complained Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz. “It’s just a poisonous relationship.” The salary limit separating those who get overtime and those who don’t was increased to $455 in 2004 during the Bush administration. At the time, it hadn’t been increased since the mid-1970s. “What we know right now is the threshold has been eroded by inflation, and there 3.1 million people who, if the threshold had kept up just with inflation, would automatically be covered by overtime provi-

sions,” said Betsey Stevenson, a member of Obama’s Council of Economic Advisers.

Overtime and minimum wage rules are set by law in the Fair Labor Standards Act that Congress originally passed in 1938. The law gives the administration some leeway to define the rules through regulations. The law requires most workers to be paid overtime that is 1.5 times their regular wages if they work more than 40 hours per week. The law allows exemptions for executives, managers and professional workers and sets the salary threshold above which workers don’t have to get overtime pay.

Pearce recommended the line be moved farther north or buried underground.

U.S. Sen. Martin Heinrich, D-N.M., a supporter of the SunZia transmission project, urged the Department of Defense on Tuesday to declassify the study on the project.

“The Cadillac pitched to the left and pulled all the sheet metal off the side of the Hyundai. The Sonata ramped the truck, pushing the (Sonata’s) driver’s seat into the dash. ... Unfortunately, the decedent’s head was between the two.” Milligan said the gouge on the road came from the weight of the Escalade pushing the Sonata down. The crash would have sent the two cars into a spin in opposite directions.

Defense attorney Gary Mitchell asked if the investigator could tell whether the Sonata’s turn signals were in use as Miranda negotiated the turn. Milligan replied that the filaments on the parking lights, the brake lamps and right tur n signal were burned out, indicating they were on at the time of the crash.

lotto scholarship

SANTA FE (AP) — Gov. Susana Martinez signed a measur e into law Wednesday to help avert possible reductions in a popular college scholarship program. The program relies on revenue from the state lottery, and cuts loomed because lottery proceeds haven’t kept pace with incr eases in college tuition. Nearly 18,000 New Mexico students receive the scholarships, which cover the full cost of tuition to attend a public college or university in the state. The state faced the prospect of trimming scholarship amounts without the changes approved by lawmakers and agreed upon by Martinez. About $19 million in annual liquor tax money will supplement the scholarship program for two years starting in 2015. Until that happens, a newly enacted state budget pr ovides extra money to keep the


program solvent.

Curr ently, students who maintain a certain grade-point average can receive scholarships for up to eight semesters. That will be trimmed to seven semesters for new scholarship recipients as well as some students already receiving the aid.

The financial fix is only temporary. Lawmakers are expected to continue to debate whether to cap scholarship amounts in the future or change student eligibility to control rising program costs.

The governor used her line-item veto powers to resolve a wording error in the measur e that could have forced students to wait an extra semester to get a scholarship. Wednesday was the deadline for the governor to sign or veto bills passed by the Legislature during its recent 30-day session.

Alarcon was back at UNM Hospital on Wednesday, and Tafoya was waiting to hear whether he was being admitted into the hospital again. “There aren’t any specialists in Roswell for what he has, and he has to go to UNM twice a week to get his stomach tapped,” Tafoya said. “Because his liver isn’t working, his body builds up fluids, including ammonia. An important job of the liver is to change toxic substances that are either made by the body or taken into the body, such as medicines, and make them harmless, according to the National Institutes of Health website, However, when the liver is damaged, these chemicals may build up in the bloodstream. Ammonia, which is produced by the body when proteins are digested, is one of the harmful substances that is normally made harmless by the liver. Many other substances may also build up in the body if the liver is not working well. They can cause damage to the nervous system. “He has had damage to his stomach, esophagus and intestines,” Tafoya said, “and it can also damage his brain.” Twice a week, doctors at UNM draw about a gallon of fluids from Alarcon. He is also staying close to UNM so that when a donor organ becomes available, he can be flown from UNM to either Arizona or Colorado, the two nearest locations where a liver transplant can be performed. “I’ve been holding it together, but I’ve lost it twice,” says Tafoya. “Being in this position, for over a year now, has been

2006 to 2013: Government jobs up, then down Scads of state economic numbers new to me crawled from the darkness a few days ago. The numbers omitted government, so first, using other numbers, we will consider the performance of our leaders in weaning the state from the dark dependence on government jobs. The Department of Workforce Solutions is the source of the government figures. An entirely arbitrary choice, Octobers from 2006, 2011 and 2013, provide the comparison. The numbers, for wage jobs, are revised and seasonally unadjusted. Overall government employment declined during the period. The total, 197,400 in 2006, grew 1,700, or 0.86 percent, by 2011 and declined 4,000, or two percent, to 195,100 two years later. The federal sector, by far the smallest of the gover nment employers, more than explains the changes. Federal employers hired a net of 2,300 people, a 7.6



percent increase, between October 2006 and 2011. Federal employment dropped 9.2 percent to 29,700 between from October 2011 to 2013. Federal employment runs about half of the state government total and less than a third of local government. All governments do different things. Geography bounds the activity. For the federal government, the world is the boundary. Functions cover national defense, “big” science, humanitarian, environmental and tribal relationships. Policy imperatives turn into money and jobs in quite different and com-

plex ways. The policy considerations underlying a military base or a national laboratory are far from those behind a national monument. To treat a government sector as just one monolithic thing, as does our public dialogue, is to mislead, just as it is to treat the private sector as one thing. All that said, the idea of smaller government drives my perspective, things not even quite equal. In October 2013, state government employment was 60,600, the same as seven years earlier. This figure refers to the job sector, not people getting wages from the state. Local gover nment employed 104,800 in October 2013, well above the combined federal / state total. Local government jobs fell a bit during the period, about 1.5 percent. A flashlight illumination, a passing mention in a footnote, led to digging the new numbers from the black hole that is our elec-

tronic census. The mention, by Nobel Prize winner Edmund Phelps, came in “Mass Flourishing,” his book about how “grassroots innovation created jobs, challenge and change.” The census product is “Business Dynamics Statistics.” The Dynamics Statistics cover most of the private sector, minus railroad employees for some reason, and the self-employed who are important in New Mexico. The 2013 employment total is 601,184, not far from the October 2013 private sector wage job total of 619,100 reported by Workforce Solutions. The figure seems close enough to be useful. For those of us into such things, cool stuff abounds from some spreadsheet slogging. From 1977 to 2011, we get details about firms and establishments, by size, the comings and goings, births and deaths, that is, of firms and establishments, of how many employees they have and of jobs created and

destroyed. I’ll provide details next week. Today’s highlights begin with a definition. An establishment is an individual business location. A firm is a business, an enterprise, that may operate more than one establishment. Retailers and restaurants are often multiestablishment firms. In 2007, the New Mexico economy peaked. That year, the state had 33,722 firms that, together, operated 8,323 additional locations for a total of 42,045 establishments. There were 645,262 employees in 2007, about 44,000 less than in October 2013. Just over 118,000 jobs were created during the year, 50,000 by new establishments, the rest by firms continuing in business. The year saw 99,000 jobs destroyed, 30,000 by defunct operations and 60,000 by those still around. More about these changes next week.


Senate boosts output of greenhouse gases

Democrats in the U.S. Senate were expected this morning to wrap up an allnight talk-fest on climate change. Led by Sens. Barbara Boxer of California, Brian Schatz of Hawaii and Sheldon Whitehouse of Rhode Island, participating lawmakers urge congressional action to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. "So many senators coming together for an all-night session shows our commitment to wake up Congress to the dangers of climate change," Sen. Boxer said. "All you have to do is look at China to see what happens when you throw the environment under the bus." We find it interesting that California's junior senator mentioned China. Because, even if Congress took action to reduce America's greenhouse emissions, the resultant reduction would be more than offset by China, which has supplanted the U.S. as the world's largest emitter of carbon dioxide. That's why Sen. Boxer voted in 1997 for Senate Resolution 98, also known as the Byrd-Hagel Resolution, which set forth conditions under which President Bill Clinton should sign the so-called Kyoto Protocol. That 1997 United Nations treaty presumed to set binding emissions reduction targets for the United States and other developed countries while giving a free pass to such "developing" nations as China, which currently accounts for more than a quarter of the world's greenhouse gas emissions, and India, which ranks third. Byrd-Hagel, approved 95-0, directed the president not to sign any climate change treaty "unless the protocol or agreement also mandates new specific commitments to limit or reduce greenhouse gas emissions for Developing Country Parties," or that "would result in serious harm to the economy of the United States." Ultimately, President Clinton decided not to submit the U.N. climate change treaty to the Senate. He knew it had zero chance of ratification. Sens. Boxer, Schatz and Whitehouse apparently believe that the passage of time has made the Senate more inclined to support federally mandated reductions in greenhouse emissions to levels the U.N. set forth in Kyoto. Well, we suggest that they put that in the form of legislation on which votes actually will be cast. Then we'll see where Senate Democrats really stand. REPRINTED FROM THE ORANGE COUNTY REGISTER


Dear Editor, My name is James Licon. I am a 36year-old Hispanic male, who at times has problems with epileptic seizures. On Monday, March 10, at 8:50 p.m., I was on my way to Dollar General north, before they closed. As I crossed the street from the Peter Piper’s area to Familia Dental, I got across the median all right, but when I got on the sidewalk of Familia Dental, I don’t know what happened. As I proceeded to walk to Dollar General north, I ended up finding myself unconscious on the sidewalk of Familia Dental. When I came back to myself, I got up around 9:10-9:15 p.m. and called 9-1-1. So, if anyone saw me on that sidewalk of Familia Dental walking north, while traffic is going south, or if anybody going north happened to see me collapse or just fall to the ground between 8:50-9:05 p.m. or so, I would like you to get in contact with me. You can call or text me: James Licon of WOE23 Ministries, 575-416-2327. Because, what you witnessed can be helpful to me and my doctor, and your help and eye-witness will be greatly appreciated. Thank You and God Bless, James “WOE23” Licon WOE23 Ministries

Wealthy environmentalists push Democrats to lean-in to green energy Democrats have decided to lean-in, not back-away, from so-called clean energy. Despite the embarrassing history of government-funded green-energy failures, “wealthy environmentalists are pushing Democrats to take bolder positions on climate change”—and global warming, as an issue, provides the impetus for more greenenergy spending. The Boston Globe reported on a recent “summit between Washington’s liberal elite and San Francisco’s climate intelligentsia” that included “Senate majority leader Harry Reid, a Nevada Democrat, six other senators, and … Al Gore.” The Globe points to new efforts by Democrats to “make global warming a central issue during the midterms.” Reid has, according to the Globe, “pledged to allot time to anyone who wants to discuss climate change at party lunches or on the Senate floor.” Senator Barbara Boxer (DCA), along with Senator Shel-

Every organ in your body needs a constant energy supply. And every organ is making waste material and needs a “garbage collector” to take the waste away. Both the energy supply and the waste removal come from the blood that constantly runs through every organ. The heart is the muscle that constantly pumps blood through every organ in your body.

everyone understood clean energy would be at the forefront of the Senate agenda. It wasn’t back-away; it was clearly lean-in.” So, who are these “wealthy environmentalists,” who are driving the agenda and making powerful U.S. Senators jump like an organ grinder’s monkey to do their bidding? The answer is found in Christine Lakatos’ newest report for the Green Corruption Files: The dark, driving force behind the president’s massive green-energy scheme. Lakatos focuses on left-wing think tank, Center for American Progress (CAP) founded by John Podesta—who is now serving as White House counselor specializing in climate change issues. The Huffington Post (HP) says this about CAP and Podesta: “John Podesta probably is and has been the most important opinion leader for progressives in America in the last decade, certainly during the term of the Obama

Administration, through his leadership of the Center for American Progress (CAP).” HP points out: CAP has “been a vocal voice for this president’s policies in the media and on the Hill. But their area of highest visibility is advocacy for a clean energy economy where John Podesta has personally led the effort.” Podesta is the organ grinder from within the White House and progressive political platforms. Tom Steyer is now doing the same from outside Washington—leading “San Francisco’s climate intelligentsia.” In light of his recent politicalinfluence reveal, Tom Steyer— CAP Board Member and donor, Obama bundler, and host of the recent “summit” (held on his 1800-acre ranch, with views of the Golden Gate Bridge)—is worthy of special attention. Who is he and where did he get his money? Steyer founded and was the

plus stenting, or coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery. Angioplasty plus stenting: A small balloon wrapped in a collapsed stent is inserted into a blood vessel in the gr oin or ar m and maneuvered into the heart. When the balloon is inflated, it flattens the cholesterol-filled plaque that was restricting blood flow. The balloon is deflated and removed. The stent remains behind to prop open the artery. CABG: During open-heart surgery, an artery or vein taken from elsewhere in the body is stitched in place to r er oute blood ar ound the blocked artery. The choice between angioplasty and bypass depends on a number of factors. I spoke to my colleague, interventional cardiologist Dr. Donald E. Cutlip, for more details. When all thr ee of the heart’s coronary arteries are narrowed or blocked, bypass is the better choice. (The doctor might make an exception if a patient is too frail to undergo surgery.) Also, for

patients with diabetes, CABG is generally superior to angioplasty. When fewer than thr ee coronary arteries are affected, the choice depends on which arteries are involved. The left anterior descending artery (LAD) feeds blood to mor e of the heart muscle than the other two coronary arteries. When the LAD is narrowed or blocked, bypass surgery usually is best. With colleagues at Orca Health, we have r ecently published inexpensive iBooks for the Apple iPad and iPhone on angioplasty and stent, and on CABG surgery. They show you — with spectacular videos — what happens during these procedures. You can learn more about them at my website, (Dr. Komaroff is a physician and professor at Harvard Medical School.

This week, we continue the topic of suicide, self-harm, and depression among teens. Last week, we talked about indicators and the recognition that a person you know is emotionally troubled, including the many ways you can have that person contact or search for help from health professionals. We talked to some current students about their experiences with these topics, and heard how they view their lives. One student talked about her depression that she deals with. “I’m so tired of being everyone’s second choice. It sucks and I know why they do it. I know I’m not beautiful, or skinny, or smart, or funny, or anything remotely positive. But for once, is it too much to ask to be someone’s first choice? — for someone to actually love me and care about me? I want what most girls want. I want to be cuddled and kissed and complimented (even though I’ll never believe them) and just cared for by a boy or girl.


“I want someone to not hate me for the scars on my thighs. For someone that doesn’t just like me for my chest size. I’m not just a chest, no matter what some guys believe. I’m tired of sitting back seat to everyone else’s cares and problems and drama. For once, can someone notice that I’ve been slowly but surely wasting away and falling before their eyes since sixth grade? That I’ve stopped wearing shorts all together? That I almost always wear long sleeved shirts and jackets now? That I hide behind the clothes I wear? That I’ve given up on my worthless life?

“For once, can someone just hug me and lie and say everything will be okay? For once ... just for once. Can I be the one people want?” Another teen had this to say, “I hate being this sad. Honestly. I’m so alone and I’m always going to be like this. I’m such a s----- person who’s going nowhere in life. I feel like such a burden to other people and if I didn’t exist their lives would be so much easier. I annoy everyone just by existing. “I hate this. I really miss my razors so bad and I kinda wish I didn’t through them away. I feel so alone. I just want to be happy but honestly anything I do doesn’t make me happy anymore. “I feel so dead inside and I hate it. So numb. I hate how I’m so sensitive and literally cry about everything . And I’m so rude and mean to everyone and I really don’t mean to be. I wish I wasn’t so afraid of the pain of suicide because, honestly, I feel like that’s how I’m going to die anyways.

level even for plants sensitive to juglone.” This is from: 070701.htm. This report did not discuss vermicomposting, but it is probable that worm composting will also detoxify the juglone. The article listed above also lists plants sensitive to juglone and those resistant to juglone. I also looked for information regarding the impact of juglone on the worms used for making vermicompost. Juglone is known to impact several types of worms, even being used as a “wormer” to help remove worms from animals. Other comments

tell of earthworms quickly decomposing piles of black walnut leaves. Attempting vermicomposting the black walnut leaves is worth trying. Mixing the walnut leaves with other leaves may minimize negative effects of juglone on the worms. After composting or vermicomposting, a wise procedure would be to test your compost carefully on a few sensitive plant species to confirm that the composting process has sufficiently detoxified the juglone in walnut leaves. If there are still symptoms of toxicity, provide additional composting time with aeration and moisture after the ver micompost has for med to allow aerobic decomposition of the juglone. Are you writing from the USA? My answer is based on the black walnut which is the Juglans species with greatest juglone content in the USA. Several Juglans species grow in other regions of

Composting with leaves from walnut trees

Q. Can we use Juglans leaves for vermicompost (for worm composting) or for traditional compost? I am concer ned about allelopathy. Teyyub Babayev Via internet A. All species of Juglans (walnut trees) produce the allelopathic chemical juglone, but it is most concentrated in black walnut (Juglans nigra). Juglone can have negative ef fects on the growth of many garden plants, especially tomato plants. There are other plants that produce chemicals which influence the growth of other plants. These chemicals often diminish or prevent the growth of other plants. However, most allelopathic chemicals are organic compounds that can be detoxified under conditions of proper composting. I found information from universities indicating that when leaves of black walnut are properly com-

Senior Managing Member of Farallon Capital Management—until late 2012 when the firm’s partners bought out his “profit share.” His net worth is estimated to be $1.55 billion—some of which is reported to have been made through millions of dollars worth of shares his firm invested in big oil companies such as BP and pipeline company Kinder Morgan. Fox News reports: “He continues to have significant investments with Farallon, according to a spokesman, Steyer has directed the fund to ‘green’ his portfolio and divest him of all positions in oil and coal—including Kinder Morgan.” Regarding his recent interest in California’s blooming green-technology industry, the New York Times (NYT) quoted Steyer as saying: “really what we’re fighting is self-interested dirty-energy companies.” Having made billions through “dirty-energy companies,” Farallon Capital Management has been greening its portfolio. The NYT cites Steyer, when he was still with Farallon, as “the main financial backer of Greener Capital [now EFW Capital], a venture firm that invests in renewable energy start ups.” A 2012 Washington Free Beacon report points out some of Farallon’s other green-energy investments include the Westport Carbon project—established to monetize carbon emission reductions; and Fuel Systems Solutions—which manufactures alternative fuel components. While a 2011 Forbes profile on Steyer quotes him as saying: “I am a true believer that we have to change the way we generate and consume energy in

The toxic effect can be degraded in two to four weeks. In the soil, breakdown may take up to two months after the living walnut tree has been removed. Mulch or woodchips from black walnut are not recommended for plants sensitive to juglone. However, composting the woodchips for a minimum of six months allows the chemical to break down to a safe

the United States,” it would also be easy to view his combined investment and politicking efforts as “self-interested,” as he does stand to profit from the polices he’s promoting. Steyer calling traditional energy companies “selfinterested” is like the presumed morally superior pot calling the proven economically superior kettle black. Perhaps he really is a “true believer.” If so, he should remove himself from any form of financial gain he can reap from his political activism and donations. But maybe, like I do, those self-interested oil companies truly believe that developing our own resources to provide all Americans with energy that is efficient, effective, and economical is in America’s best interest. The 2014 elections give Americans the opportunity to decide whether they side with the 28 Democrat Senators at Monday night’s sleepover who are dancing at the behest of the organ grinders—or if we want to learn from the mistakes of their failed green-energy projects that only profit the wealthy while robbing taxpayers, raise electricity, rates and hurt the poor.

Gas blast destroys 2 NY buildings; 3 dead NEW YORK (AP) — A gas leak triggered an earthshaking explosion that flattened two apartment buildings on Wednesday, killing at least three people, injuring more than 60 and leaving nine missing. A tenant said residents had complained repeatedly in recent weeks about “unbearable” gas smells. By evening, rescue workers finally began the search for victims amid the broken bricks, splintered wood and mangled metal after firefighters spent most of the day dousing the flames. Heavy equipment, including back hoes and a bulldozer, arrived to clear the mountain of debris where the two fivestory East Harlem buildings stood. Flood lights were in place. Thermal imaging cameras were at the ready to identify heat spots — bodies or pockets of fire. The recovery was facing hardship in the form of the weather, which was expected to drop into the 20s with rain. Some parts of the debris pile were inaccessible because of a sinkhole caused by a subsurface water main break, officials said. The fiery blast, on Park Avenue at 116th Street, not far from the edge of Central Park, erupted about 9:30 a.m., around 15 minutes after a neighboring resident reported smelling gas, authorities said. The Con Edison utility said it immediately sent workers to check out the report, but they didn’t

arrive until it was too late. The explosion shattered windows a block away, rained debris onto elevated commuter railroad tracks close by, cast a plume of smoke over the skyline and sent people running into the streets. “It felt like an earthquake had rattled my whole building,” said Waldemar Infante, a porter who was working in a basement nearby. “There were glass shards everywhere on the ground, and all the stores had their windows blown out.” Police said two women believed to be in their 40s were killed. At least three of the injured were children; one, a 15-year -old boy, was reported in critical condition with burns, broken bones and internal

injuries. Most of the other victims’ injuries were minor and included cuts and scrapes. Fire officials said some people were unaccounted for but cautioned they may not have been in the buildings. A tenant in one of the destroyed buildings, Ruben Borrero, said residents had complained to the landlord about smelling gas as recently as Tuesday. A few weeks ago, Borrero said, city fire officials were called about the odor, which he said was so bad that a tenant on the top floor broke open the door to the roof for ventilation. “It was unbearable,” said Borrero, who lived in a second-floor apartment with his mother and sister,

who were away at the time of the explosion. “You walk in the front door and you want to turn around and walk directly out.”

The fire department said a check of its records found no instances in the past month in which tenants of the two buildings reported gas odors or leaks.

Jennifer Salas lived in one of the buildings. She told The New York Times her husband, Jordy Salas, and her dog were in the building at the time of the collapse and were missing.

“There’s six floors in the building; each floor has one apartment,” she said. “Last night it smelled like gas, but then the smell vanished and we all went to sleep.”

Kennedy denies request to block gun magazine law WASHINGTON (AP) — Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy has denied an emergency request by the National Rifle Association to block enforcement of a California city ordinance that bans gun magazines capable of holding more than 10 bullets. A court spokesman says Kennedy

denied the request without comment. The ban in Sunnyvale went into effect last week after 66 percent of voters approved it in November. The NRA challenged the law, but a federal judge ruled that it does not violate the Second Amendment right to own guns for self-defense.

The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco denied the NRA’s request for an emergency order to stop the ban from taking effect while it considers the appeal. Kennedy overseas emergency appeals from California and other Western states.

More Care is staying local at ENMMC

Eastern New Mexico Medical Center has made large strides in improving and expanding local access to specialty care over the last year, and more is on the way. The hospital’s investments and growth of services means more people can stay local for their care, which is more convenient, can support more rapid intervention – and it also continues to fuel the local economy. Log on to the Eastern New Mexico Medical Center at for more information.

Early last year ENMMC introduced teleneurology services. “With this new service, we now provide a higher level of emergency stroke and critical neurology care, 24 hours a day,” said Maridel Acosta, ENMMC’s CEO. If it’s suspected that a stroke has occurred, ENMMC’s stroke team will take a scan of the patient’s brain and, if further examination is warranted, sophisticated videoconferencing technology is used to quickly connect doctors at ENMMC with a neurologist - a doctor specially trained in stroke care. “This new service strengthens primary stroke services by supporting earlier

treatment for stroke, and assessment if a higher level of care is necessary,” Acosta said. This fully interactive technology allows a neurologist to examine a patient as though he or she were sitting at the bedside, download and review the brain scan image and discuss the findings with the patient and ER physicians at ENMMC. The neurologist can also do a remote examination of the patient through video conferencing, where the patient is able to see and talk to the neurologist. Because the technology can focus on the patient in the exam room and zoom in

so close that the patient’s pupils and other vital signs can be assessed, the neurologist is able to evaluate the patient’s condition, make a prompt diagnosis and recommend treatment quickly. In 2013 alone, ENMMC was able to care for and treat 43 patients right here at home by utilizing the teleneurology service that would have otherwise had to be transferred out to an out of town facility.

Additionally, with the expansion of cardiologists on its Medical Staff, ENMMC now has 24/7 availability and coverage of interventional and diagnostic cardi-

ologists. For patients experiencing chest pain or heart attack symptoms, it’s important to know that cardiac specialists are available. The hospital also has a dedicated Cardiac Cath Lab with 24/7 staffed and on-call availability. "This coverage solidifies what was already a very good program," said Acosta. “With the combined skills and talents of the Emergency Department physicians and staff, and the cardiac specialists on the Medical Staff, more cardiac patients at ENMMC can get the cardiac care they need locally for interventions that used to require a transfer to another facility. With

the growth of cardiac services, ENMMC plans to expand diagnostic services this year.

Eastern New Mexico Medical Center not only seeks to serve patients with its programs but also considers physicians and employees' desire for the best technology to do so. "We are blessed with a loyal group of physicians. We remain focused on physician recruitment and are known to be physician-friendly," Acosta said. "We continue an aggressive physician recruitment program to continue to help improve local access to primary and specialty

care services. We’re competing with hundreds of communities across the country. However, the community’s ongoing support will continue to be important to the hospital’s success with recruiting and retaining physicians. “The ultimate benefit of the hospital’s investments goes to patients, who have access to a higher quality of care and some of the most advanced technologies in the region. And staying local, patients have the support of family and friends. Plus, it helps to drive the local economy. Everyone wins.”

Coyotes cruise into 4A semis 72-57 Thursday, March 13, 2014 Phone: 575-622-7710, ext. 304



Roswell Daily Record

ALBUQUERQUE — Better late than never. We’ve all heard that an inordinate amount of times in our life. The Roswell Coyotes need to have that emblazoned on a shirt after Wednesday’s state quarterfinal at The Pit. They had let a 19-point lead dwindle to just five with 4 minutes left in the game and two starters were sitting on the bench after fouling out. Then, finally, it happened — the patented Roswell run. And the No. 1 Coyotes rode this one to a 72-57 win over Gallup and a spot in today’s state semifinals. “I felt like we were going to get a run, but I just didn’t know when it was going to happen,” said Roswell senior Cesar Nava, who narrowly missed a triple-double with 13 points, 13 boards and nine assists, said about Roswell’s 13-0 burst. “But that run just helped us close it out. We needed to close it out because the crowd was getting into it. We needed to shut them up a little


bit and make sure to get everything under control. “That run got everything going for us.” It also probably saved Roswell (27-1) from another early exit in the state tournament. With 4:05 left, the eighth-seeded Bengals closed out a 5-0 run on a free throw by Tyler John after Matthew Sedillo was called for his fifth foul. The free throw drew the Bengals within five, 59-54, the closest they had been since the latter stages of the first quarter. The most unlikely of heroes was waiting to lift Roswell on the ensuing possession, though. Dominic Anaya, who had seen limited action late in the year after suffering a severely sprained ankle, went knifing through the Gallup defense and scooped in See RHS, Page B2

Experienced Bobcats BOYS BASKETBALL get past Warriors 72-62 Panthers fall in quarters LAWRENCE FOSTER ASSISTANT SPORTS EDITOR

BERNALILLO — If there is something that can happen on a basketball court, the odds ar e the Hagerman boys basketball team has seen it. With a veteran team that features numerous players who not only played on last year’s staterunner up squad, but helped the football team win a state title this year, one could say the Bobcats are seasoned. That experience allows Hager man to stay levelheaded regardless of what is going on around them and, on Wednesday, that calm under pressure paid off.

Eagles pound Cougars

BERNALILLO — Teams who shoot bunches of 3pointers often hear the old adage, “Live by the 3, die by the 3.” The Hondo Valley Eagles shoot bunches of 3s and, more often than not, they thrive on the 3. Then there are the games where they just thrive on the shear number of shots they can produce with their uptempo, in-your-face style.

Wednesday’s quarterfinal against No. 8 Walatowa was one of those games. The top-seeded Eagles hoisted 87 shots and shot 42.5 percent from the field en route to a 98-59 throttling of the Cougars. The Eagles (24-3) rattled off an impressive 24 firstquarter points, but the best

BERNALILLO — When Wes Weems took over the boys basketball program at Lake Arthur, he told his players that his goal was to get the Panthers back to the state tournament. Few believed him then, but he spent the better part of the season drilling the notion into his players’ heads. Weems’ message started clicking midway through the year and the Panthers, a team filled with players who have carried the school to three straight state football titles, proved their detractors wrong when the state tour nament brackets were released See PANTHERS, Page B2 Kevin J.

Defense drives Demons in 47-34 win LAWRENCE FOSTER ASSISTANT SPORTS EDITOR

RIO RANCHO — Every high school basketball coach will tell you they are committed to defense. When shots are falling and everything is rainbows and butter fly kisses, players do take that energy and use it on the defensive end. Shots don’t always fall, though, and, as anyone who has watched high school basketball knows, a lack of scoring easily affects the effort on the other end. That isn’t the case for the Dexter boys basketball team and, in its NMAA Class 2A state quarterfinal matchup against Santa Rosa, the Demons proved it. The Demons shot just 35 percent from the field for the game and scored only six points in an 11:51 stretch, but hounded the Lions in a 47-34 win on Wednesday at the Santa Ana Star Center. Demon coach James Voight said

Broncos, DeMarcus Ware agree to deal B2 Thursday, March 13, 2014


ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — DeMarcus Ware boarded the plane for Denver on Wednesday mor ning, looked in the row across from him and saw a sleeping Aqib Talib. Yep, the Broncos mean business. Before Ware even had a chance to sit down with Broncos boss John Elway, he saw exactly how serious the team was about fixing its defense. Ware became Denver’s latest defensive addition in free agency, agreeing to a three-year, $30 million deal. That’s $110 million — $60 million guaranteed — for Ware, safety T.J. Ward and Talib, the last two of whom signed Tuesday. “They’re trying to make a statement — a statement we’re a team to be reckoned with,” the 31year-old Ware said. “Their mentality is a ‘now’ mentality. Not looking forward to next season or the season after that, the time is now.” Out of work less than 24 hours, Ware wasn’t fully intend-

was yet to come. The second period saw Hondo make 14 field goals, including three triples, and five free throws for 36 points. The Cougars posted a respectable 16 points in the period, but found themselves in an insurmountable 60-34 hole at the break. Hondo’s offense was so good in the second quarter that it scored before the quarter even officially started. Jordan Brady made a pair of free throws before the period started thanks to a technical foul against Walatowa for a snafu with its roster in the official scorebook. The Cougars (14-13) won the third 17-14, but Hondo finished off the victory with 24 fourthquarter points to Walatowa’s eight to provide the final margin.

ing to agree to a deal right away with Denver when he flew into town. But he was persuaded by Elway, the Hall of Fame quarterback tur ned executive who stressed to Ware the Broncos’ commitment to defense even with a prolific offense led by Peyton Manning. Elway got his man — again. He did so two years ago with Manning and last offseason with Wes Welker. It’s really no surprise the Broncos are concentrating on defense in the wake of a 43-8 loss to Seattle in the Super Bowl last month. Ward thinks the trio of new players brings not only leadership but a level of physicality to the field. Denver’s defense surrendered nearly 25 points a game last season, which was 22nd in the league. “I think you see with Seattle’s defense last year — definitely defense wins championships,” Ward said. “(Ware and Talib) are two great players. I’m eager to get to work with them. I don’t know them personally yet, but I know

seven seasons as president of the Rangers were very successful, Hall of Famer Nolan Ryan doesn't want Texans to expect miracles as he begins his new job with the Houston Astros.

"You have to have patience when you're working with young kids and allow them to develop," Ryan said Wednesday, his second day as the Astros' executive adviser. "You want things to happen, but the last three seasons the major league ball club has come off with here, everybody is very anxious to see that turn and start going the other way." After years of mediocrity, the Rangers won 90 games or more in four straight seasons under Ryan and made it to the World Series in 2010 and 2011. The Astros are in similar but worse shape than the Rangers when Ryan arrived. Houston has lost 106, 107 and 111 games in the last three years. How quickly that can change, Ryan said, "will be dictated by how the players develop and progress. That's where you're going to have to have patience." In his brief look at the young Astros, the 67-year-old Ryan had a good impression of the number of young arms. He did allow for some comparisons with the Rangers when he took over six years ago. "I think today the Astros are positioned very much like the Rangers were in '08 when I went over there," Ryan said. "There were a lot of talented kids in the minor league system and those kids were really within a year to two years of coming to the big leagues. I think that's pretty much where the Astros' farm system is.

In addition to its decided shooting advantage, Hondo also enjoyed a lopsided advantage on the glass. The Eagles pulled down 64 total rebounds, including 33 offensive, which led to a 27rebound advantage and a 29-10 edge in secondchance points. Billy Candelaria paced six Eagles in double figures with 21 points to go with eight rebounds and five steals. Roberto Nores had 17 points, Jordan Brady had 16 points, James Chavez had 11 points and six boards and Simon Gonzales added 10 points. Bryce Polido notched a double-double with 11 points and a team-best 13 rebounds. Walatowa’s Teran Villa led all scorers with 23. The Eagles will meet No. 4 Evangel Christian, which beat Wagon Mound 72-68 on Wednesday, in today’s semifinals at 1:15 p.m. at Bernalillo.

what they do on the field. Those are two players I admire. I think we’ll work well together.” Talib flew in from Dallas on the same flight as Ware, not even realizing it until halfway through the trip. He was ecstatic to later hear that Elway enticed Ware to join the Broncos. “Every year you just want to better your team,” Talib said. “Mr. Elway decided to better his team on defense this year, since the offense looks pretty good.” Ware was let go Tuesday by Dallas in a salary-cap move. He had a franchise-record 117 sacks for the Cowboys since being drafted in the first round in 2005. He had a career -low six sacks last season and missed games for the first time in his career because of a thigh injury. He underwent offseason surgery to fix his elbow. Now that Ware’s fully healthy again, he’s “going to be able to get after the passer,” Elway said. No doubt, especially playing opposite Von Miller. This was a rough season for Miller, begin-

ning with a six-game drug suspension and ending with a torn ACL on Dec. 22. Ware said he has a good relationship with Miller and hopes to get the 2011 rookie of the year back on track by serving as a mentor. “Von is one of those incredible athletes,” Ware said. “If you can really hone in on what you do best, and make yourself not think as much when you’re out there, he’ll be an even better athlete.” Talib said there’s no bad blood between him and the Broncos after he tweaked his knee early in the AFC championship game against Denver when he was bumped by Welker on a crossing route. Maybe at first, but not anymore. Not after watching the replay “1,000 times.” “Wes is a good friend of mine,” Talib said. “I can tell you he didn’t do it on purpose.” Talib appreciated Patriots coach Bill Belichick sticking up for him after the game. Belichick called it “one of the worst plays”

he’d seen in nearly four decades of coaching. The league’s officiating chief later ruled it a legal hit by Welker. “I told (Belichick) thank you and I respected what he did,” Talib said. As for Talib’s balky hip, well, that’s not an issue. Hasn’t been since his days with Tampa Bay. “The Patriots have their way of reporting stuff,” Talib said. “The injury I had was actually a quad injury, reported as a hip injury. That’s how they do things.” Talib said he received some interest from Washington, New Orleans, San Francisco and, of course, New England, but liked the fit with the Broncos. “I think we all are guys who play with attitude on the field,” Talib said. Ware couldn’t agree more, especially with the Super Bowl loss being a motivator. “They’re saying, ‘We’re going to act right now and not let that happen again,’” Ware said.

"(The Rangers) did have some key players with a little more experience on the major league level. They had Michael Young and (Ian) Kinsler, and then they made the deal for Josh Hamilton," said Ryan. "They probably had a little more veteran presence on the major league level." Ryan arrived Tuesday and has spent much of the last two days watching minor leaguers with Astros general manager Jeff Luhnow. The all-time major league strikeout leader expects his role within the organization to evolve. "I think it's more or less I'm available for whatever they feel like I may be able to contribute, in whatever area," he said. In spring training, Ryan expects to watch the major league Astros when they are at home, then observe minor leaguers when the Astros are on the road. During the regular season, "I envision myself going to games and being there for parts of homestands. How much, I don't know." In any case, Ryan feels as if he is back home. He grew up south of Houston and pitched nine of his 27 seasons with the Astros.

a bucket from the block to spur Roswell on the deciding run. “You always hear about people with ice water in their veins, he’s a kid who can handle some pressure and adversity,” Cooper said about Anaya. “He’s a winner. The kid, he’ll compete whether he’s playing football or he’s out here playing basketball. “Whatever he’s doing, he’s going to compete.” Anaya followed that with another bucket at the rim after a Bengal turnover, pushing Roswell’s lead back to nine. After Gallup missed a triple try, Marquel Warner, who finished with 16 points, was fouled near midcourt. The senior hit the first free throw, but missed the second, only to make up for it by grabbing the long board and elevating to the rim for a deuce.

In 27 seconds, Roswell expanded its lead to 12, all but sealing the win. “(My) kids, they want this really bad. Maybe some teams in the past would have folded, but I thought they showed a lot,” Cooper said. “Gallup made a great comeback, got the crowd into it and played their butts off. But, (we) hung tough and were able to pull it out by 15. I’m just really proud.” Daniel Amador, who had to play post nearly the whole game because Jaivion Hicks was in foul trouble, led all scorers with 18 points to go with seven rebounds. “I knew I had to step up for him, being the big man,” Amador said. “We don’t have very much height and we’re not very strong underneath, but I knew I had to get it done.” Matthew Begay paced Gallup (17-12) with 13 points. Cody Tabaha added 10. Roswell appeared headed to another blowout win early in the second quar-

ter before Gallup battled back. The Bengals went up 8-7 with 4:29 to go in the first, but didn’t score again for more than 6 minutes. Roswell scored 20 straight points during the Bengals’ drought, taking a 27-8 advantage with 6:29 remaining in the fourth. Gallup finished the quarter on a 15-7 run, though, making it 34-23 at the break. Cooper said the adversity his team faced late in the game could be a good thing for his team. “I think that we let some things bother us and we can’t do that. But, a little adversity can make a champion. For us to get through this one, we’ve got two games left. We’ve got to keep our focus and get it done.” Roswell faces No. 4 Centennial in state semifinals today at 6:30 p.m. at The Pit. The Hawks beat Kirtland Central 49-40 in the quarterfinals on Wednesday.

On Wednesday, Lake Arthur made its first appearance in the state tournament since 1991, falling to No. 2 Carrizozo 53-36 in the quarterfinals at Bernalillo High School. “What can you tell a team that hasn’t been her e in 24 years? All I could say was that I was proud of them,” Weems said about his message to his team after the loss. “ They did not just r oll over and play dead. They kept playing. “Other thing I said was, ‘Bottom line, when we started this year, nobody expected us to even be here.’” And while nobody expected

melted down in a 72-62 Hagerman win that gave the Bobcats a berth in the quarterfinals of the NMAA Class 1A State Basketball Championships. “I think the experience from some of these guys (helped us),” Bobcat coach Anthony Mestas said r egar ding how important experience was to the victory. “I was telling them before the game, some of the guys have played in four state championships — two in football, two in basketball. I think the experience kind of helped us.’ “Everybody was calm and cool. We kept our composur e and kept playing the game.” With Hagerman leading 17-10 following a bunny by Jose Bejarano with 7:13 left in the second quarter, the Warriors went on a 6-0 run over the next 1:12. Mestas called a timeout as To’hajiilee and its fans celebrated its minirun. Hager man wasn’t phased and followed the timeout with a 6-0 run of its own that made it 2316 with 4:51 left.

them to be in Bernalillo, even fewer people believed they would contend with the Grizzlies. But, sticking with the theme of proving people wrong, the Panthers did contend despite what the final score might indicate. After falling behind 11-4 through one, the Panthers rallied in the second quarter. In the first 34 seconds, Cody Dalton and Dominic Pisana each nailed a pair at the line, trimming the Carrizozo lead to 11-8. Lake Arthur ended the quarter with a flurry of offense after falling behind 14-8. The Panthers twice cut their deficit to two and, with 40 seconds remaining, drew to within three on a Felipe De La Cruz fr ee throw.

that the timeout helped his team. “We were up seven in the first quarter and they (got to within one),” he said. “We called timeout, got back in our groove and went up by 10.” By the end of the first half, the Bobcats had grown their lead to 3724, but Hagerman would need to call on its experience one more time in the fourth. Hagerman held a 10point lead when Ramos, who scored a game-high 21 points, fouled out with 5:12 left in the game. T o’hajiilee’s T reston Platero made 1 of 2 from the charity stripe to make it a nine-point game and, two possessions later, Isaac Ignacio nailed a triple that cut the lead to 55-49. That’s when Hagerman put the game away by staying calm. Following Ignacio’s trey, there was a loose ball that numerous players dove on the floor to control. In the end, the Warriors’ Seth Watuema was called for his fifth foul, which sent Bryan Bar ela to the line for two.

The 6-foot-5 post scored the half’s first eight points, fueling a 10-0 run that helped Carrizozo pull away. The Panthers (12-15) got within 10 with 4:15 remaining in the third, but could never get closer. Ventura finished with game highs in points and rebounds with 21 and 14, respectively. After going 1 for 3 fr om the field in the first half, he was 9 of 10 in the final two quarters and had as many field goals himself as Lake Arthur did as a team. As a team, Lake Arthur went 10 of 45 from the field, a paltry 22.2 percent. “It’s just one of those days where, no matter what you do, it’s not going to go in,” Weems said afterward. “All you can do is keep shooting.

was charged with his second technical and ejected from the game. Barela went to the line for four fr eebies and knocked down thr ee, extending the lead to nine. Thanks to the technical, Hagerman also had possession and, on the inbounds, Jessie Rodriguez found Bejarano under neath for an easy deuce that iced the game. Mestas said that following the ejection of Marmon, he felt his team had the game locked up. “You know, I thought at that point we had this one in the bag,” he said. “It got really emotional on (T o’hajiilee’s) part, with those fans coming onto the court. It was kind of crazy. It was a good atmosphere. “... Overall, I think the composure of the team and the experience helped us get this win.” Ramos had six steals, six rebounds and four helpers, while Bar ela added 18 points for Hagerman. Jose Bejarano had a double-double for the Bobcats. The senior post snagged 14 rebounds — five of which were offensive — and scor ed 15 points.

The Panthers won the period 11-7, outscoring the Grizzlies 7-4 in the final 3 minutes. As the score might indicate, defense was the name of the game in the first half. The Panthers frustrated Carrizozo (20-7) with their halfcourt defense, for cing 15 turnovers and holding leading scorer Josh Ventura to just two points on one field goal. “We just used a little halfcourt trap and tried to double down on the big man so that he wasn’t available. That worked pretty good,” Weems said about his team’s defense. “The second half, they screened our back side to where we couldn’t get down to the double down. “They took that away to where they could use the big man, and he was effective.” Very effective, to be exact.

his defense stepped up against Santa Rosa “The last couple of games, we have went on some droughts. But, the last couple of games we have played really good defensively,” he said. “If you look (at the stat sheet) they have 6, 5 and 7 in quarters. So, they are under 10 points in three different quarters. In the fourth quarter they got 16, but we got 21. “You look at that and you know that should be a win.” The Lions took the first lead of the game with a triple by Robert Zamora with 6:24 left in the first, but Santa Rosa didn’t make another field goal until the 4:13 mark of the second quarter. Santa Rosa’s 3-0 lead was erased by a jumper and triple by Kevin Bonner. David Lopez made two 3s and Bonner nailed another trey in the final 3:43 of the first, giving the Demons a 14-6 lead heading into the second. Dexter’s lead grew to 20-8 following a David Lopez free throw with 3:31 left in the half, but the Demons wouldn’t score again for more than 6 minutes. That was no problem for the Dexter defense. During the drought, Santa Rosa had 11 possessions. Of those 11, five ended in turnovers and just two ended with field goals as the Lions were only able to trim the lead to six. Dexter followed the 6-0 spurt with a quick six points — via 3s from Lopez and Kevin Paez — that made it 26-14. The Demons’ run was followed by another drought that lasted 4:29, but once again the defense stepped up. Santa Rosa had nine possessions during the final 4:29 of the third, but

tinued to battle and that’s all I can ask them to do.” In comparison, Carrizozo finished 21 of 43 from the field, a 48.8-percent clip. Pisana was the lone Panther in double figures with 10. Dalton added nine and Luis Velo had eight. In the closing seconds, the six Panther seniors — Pisana, Velo, De La Cruz, Juan Carlos T arango, Miguel Rubio and Wayne Kneifel — wor e their hearts on their sleeves as they left the court. “The kids, they’re distraught. They’re upset in (the locker room),” Weems said. “That just means they are hungry to be here for more next year. That bodes well for our futur e I hope.”

turned it over three times and missed 4 of 6 from the charity stripe as Dexter took a 26-18 lead into the fourth. In the fourth, Dexter found its offensive groove and scored the first six points of the quarter to make it a 14point game. The Lions never got closer than nine the rest of the way. With fellow guards Kevin Bonner and Paez in foul trouble for large portions of Dexter’s scoring drought, Kyle Bonner made sure there was no lapse on the defensive end for the Demons. “Defense is my thing. One thing I just like doing is defense,” he said. “I work my butt off on defense. My team picks off me and my brother on the defensive side. ... I felt like I needed to step up (with Kevin Bonner and Paez in foul trouble).” Voight said that Kyle Bonner’s performance was key for his team. “He is the type of player, where he won’t be in the state sheet,” he said. “We had two of our big time scorers out and he stepped up and had to take on the load. He did a good job tonight. It may not show anything on the stat sheet, but we need defense, energy and for him to keep us calm out there, and he did it. All three things tonight.” All that stands between the Demons and their second straight appearance in the state championship game is Clayton. Voight said that Clayton has the size advantage, but he plans to wear down the Yellowjackets’ big men. “We know Clayton is big, but they aren’t very deep,” he said. “We like to run, so we will see if we can make it a track meet.” Lopez finished with a game-high 18 points to go along with nine rebounds, while Kyle Bonner added 14 points for the Demons.

DEAR ABBY: When I was in my early 20s, I had a baby boy I placed for adoption. I could barely take care of myself, let alone a newborn. The father wanted nothing to do with me or the baby, so I placed him with his relatives out of state, who adopted him. With counseling, I got my life back on track, finished college and got a good job. I am married now and have a family. After 20 years, this child, “Fred,” called me. We talked every night for a few weeks and I invited him here to live with me. BIG MISTAKE! Long story short, Fred is greedy, lazy and expects every-

one to wait on him. He refuses to look for a job or go to school, and he expects me to pay all his expenses. I called his adoptive family. They said when things don’t go his way, Fred pouts and doesn’t communicate until he needs money. They feel exactly as I do. Abby, my family loves Fred and welcomed him with open arms, but I feel detached from him. As soon as I learned I was pregnant, I began separating myself because I knew it would be difficult to let go. I do not regard Fred as a member of my family and have no maternal feelings for him. I’d be OK if I knew he was doing well — from a distance. I don’t love this young man, and I don’t know what to say when he says, “Love you, Mom.” Am I wrong to feel this way? Is there anyone else out there who feels as I do? My family is trying to guilt me into accepting him, but I can’t. It’s not because of his greedy behavior, although that’s part of it. Have others had a similar experience? SINCERELY NOT HIS MOM


DEAR SINCERELY: I’m printing your letter because although many adoption reunions go well, not all of them do. If other birth mothers would like to share their experiences, I’m inviting them to do so. However, I do have this to offer: Do NOT allow yourself to be trapped into doing anything with which you are not comfortable. Your feelings may be based on the circumstances surrounding Fred’s birth. They may also result from your disappointment in his lack of character. While you will always be Fred’s birth mother, you are NOT his “mom.” That distinction belongs to the woman who raised him. #####

DEAR ABBY: My brother is dating one of my employees. She has one of those “take charge” personalities. She’s pushy and she’s trying to worm her way into the family. At work I can keep her at bay, but at family events she’s out of control. She insists on doing and cooking everything — including

cleaning my mother’s house, which isn’t dirty, by the way. My older brothers’ significant others have noticed, but being the only daughter, I’m at my wits’ end. She won’t take “no thanks” for an answer. I am sick of her “I’ll get this, I’ve got it, it’s OK” attitude. I’m trying to keep my brother’s happiness in mind and not cause a scene, but I’m afraid I’ll lose it one of these days. Any advice? I, TOO, CAN ORGANIZE A PICNIC

Family Circus

DEAR I, TOO: Has it occurred to you that your brother’s girlfriend (your employee) may be desperate to be accepted, which is why she’s going to such great lengths to please? My advice is to relax, because her efforts are no reflection on you. I’m sure you have done your part at many family functions. If her efforts are alienating the other significant others, perhaps they can stage an “intervention” and get her to calm down. In the meantime, hang onto your temper.

Today’s Crossword Puzzle

Dear Readers: Many people use HUMIDIFIERS regularly because of allergies or illness, but did you know that they also can make you sick if you do not keep them clean? Here are some hints from the Environmental Protection Agency on keeping your humidifier clean and working well: • Clean the humidifier according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Unplug the unit, and do not use cleaning agents unless they’re specified safe by the manufacturer. • Do not use tap water in the humidifier. According to the EPA, use only distilled water or water with a low mineral content to prevent scale buildup and release of minerals into the air. (It’s your call!) • Every day, empty and refill the water with fresh water. If you see film floating on top of the water, throw out the water and clean the humidifier. • Before storing the humidifier, empty all water and clean thoroughly. When ready to use the humidifier again, clean it to get rid of any dust or dirt that settled while in storage. Heloise #####

Dear Heloise: I found a very simple way to avoid annoying phone calls: I installed an answering machine. When the phone rings, I do not pick it up. I let the machine answer, and then I listen to see who is calling. If I want to talk to the caller, I pick up the phone. I have found that at least half of the callers hang up before my machine’s “greeting” is completed. Sales calls ignored! Jim V., Santa Maria, Calif.

Dear Heloise: The small, thin, flat, semisquare plastic tabs that close the ends of bread and bakery-goods bags are great to use to keep the end of tape easy to start again. The tape sticks to the tab and is easy to find. The tape never sticks permanently to the tab and is easy to pop off and then put back after you’ve used the tape. No more roll rotating to try to find the almost-invisible seam. G.B. in California

Dear Heloise: I have been frustrated by old masking tape that is hard to unroll and tears because the adhesive stiffens with age. Give that old roll 20 seconds in the microwave. The tape comes out warm, and it unrolls smoothly. Tom in New Jersey

Roswell Daily Record


Bucs cut Revis; Tate joins Lions Nets get Heat Roswell Daily Record

Not quite keeping pace with the nonstop nature of Day 1 of free agency, Day 2 did include the Buccaneers releasing cornerback Darr elle Revis after failing to trade him; receiver Golden Tate leaving the Super Bowl champion Seahawks to play alongside AllPr o Calvin Johnson with the Lions; and the Browns cutting two quarterbacks, Brandon Weeden and Jason Campbell. The Revis move saved the Bucs a $1.5 million bonus that would have been due if he remained on the roster with his $16 million salary. It also fr eed up r oom under the cap for a continuing roster overhaul under new coach Lovie Smith and general manager Jason Licht. The Cowboys made another move to clear cap space Wednesday, jettisoning receiver Miles Austin, as expected, saving about $5.5 million. Austin’s release is effective June 1. And they signed free agent defensive linemen Terrell McClain and Jeremy Mincey. Revis, meanwhile, spent only one season with the Bucs, who got him from the Jets for a 2013 first-round draft pick and a 2014 fourth-round choice. If Revis had still been on Tampa Bay’s r oster by 4 p.m. ET on Wednesday, the Bucs would have needed to upgrade that 2014 draft pick to a third-rounder. The Bucs already signed a topflight cornerback, former Titans player Alterraun Verner, on Tuesday, when they also brought aboard defensive end Michael Johnson, defensive tackle Clinton McDonald and tight end Brandon Myers. Tampa Bay added a quarterback Wednesday by agreeing to a

two-year contract with Josh McCown, a backup who got a chance to start five games last season for the Bears in place of an injured Jay Cutler. A player expecting to be on the move soon was Carolina receiver Steve Smith, whose agent, Derrick Fox, told The Associated Press the five-time Pro Bowl pick “is not going to play for the Panthers next year.” Fox said he expected Smith to get cut, although Carolina was trying to trade him. In other news Wednesday: —Yet another pass rusher became available when defensive end Chris Clemons was released by the Seahawks. Clemons was due to make $7.5 million in base salary next season. He is the fourth member of Seattle’s defense to be released or sign with another club as a free agent. Tate departs from the of fense, getting a five-year deal worth $31 million with $13.25 million guaranteed, according to a person familiar with the negotiations. The person spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity because the deal had not been announced. —Seattle did add a player finally, agreeing with former Jaguars receiver Taylor Price on a oneyear deal. But it also lost guard Breno Giacomini to the Jets. New York also re-signed backup defensive lineman Leger Douzable to a one-year deal. —Offensive lineman Rodger Saffold failed his physical and won’t sign a contract with Oakland. The Raiders agr eed to a five-year, $42.5 million deal with $21.5 million in guarantees with Saffold shortly after the start of fr ee agency on Tuesday. But the team

MIAMI (AP) — Something about facing the Miami Heat still brings out the best in Paul Pierce. Jason Kidd isn’t half-bad against them, either. Pierce scored 17 of his 29 points in the third quarter and delivered two crucial scores late, Shaun Livingston created a turnover on the game’s final play and the Brooklyn Nets topped the Heat 96-95 on Wednesday night — moving to 3-0 this season against the two-time defending NBA champions, two of those wins coming by a single point and the other in overtime. “We haven’t had any success,” Kidd said of Brooklyn’s perfect mark against the Heat. “We’ve just been lucky to win some games.” Maybe, maybe not. In Kidd’s past 24 games against the Heat as a coach or player, his teams are 19-5. And this was just the latest entry in Brooklyn’s surge, with the Nets now an Eastern Conference-best 23-9 since Jan. 1. Mirza Teletovic scored 17 off the bench. Livingston finished with 13 points and Andray Blatche scored 11 for the Nets. Chris Bosh scored 24 points for Miami, giving him 15,003 for his career. Dwyane Wade scored 22, LeBron James finished with 19 and Mario Chalmers scored 14 for the Heat, who gave up 22 points off turnovers and were hit with two technicals (on Wade and Chalmers) for arguing calls within a 92-second span of the third quarter. “It’s competition,” said Heat coach Erik Spoelstra, whose team has dropped four of its past five games. “It’s survival of the strongest right now. ... We still feel confident about our game. We just need to put it together.” Miami had a chance at the end. Deron Williams missed a jumper with about 8 seconds left, and Wade grabbed the rebound. He took a couple steps downcourt, then called time out with 3.5 seconds remaining, and Miami had to burn another one in order to advance the ball into the frontcourt for the final play. Whatever Spoelstra drew up never got off the ground. Bosh tried to get the ball to James in the lane, but Livingston knocked it away and time expired. “Losing four of five,” James said, “that’s pretty bad.” Pierce was 5 for 5 from the field, 3 for 3 from 3-point range and got fouled on another try from beyond the arc in the third quarter, his biggest-scoring period of the season.
