The 13th annual Women’s History Month celebration brunch was held Saturday at the Roswell Museum and Art Center, where participants recognized achievements of women throughout the generations, and honored the local contributions of Barbara Gomez, Deborah Goluska, Diane Whetsel and Sage the rescue dog. The 2012 honorees were nominated by citizens, and later were chosen by the celebration brunch committee, which weighed each nominee on her respective community accomplishments. Sharon Bell, mistress of ceremonies, commented, “It’s nice that we set aside a special time to recognize. Women throughout history have accomplished so many things and we should appreciate that every day. But we don’t. So this is a nice opportunity to look back. Oftentimes, what I enjoy about it the most is to look at the women in my own his-

WASHINGTON (AP) — Former Vice President Dick Cheney, a 71-year-old with a long history of cardiovascular problems, had a heart transplant Saturday and is recovering at a Virginia hospital. Not even Cheney knows the donor’s identity. An aide to Cheney disclosed the surgery after it was over, saying that the ex-vice president, who suffered five heart attacks over the years, had been waiting for a transplant for more than 20 months. “Although the former vice president and his family do not know the identity of the

In a memo to the state’s top election official, King’s office said past legal rulings suggest that a New Mexico court would not reject the candidates because of a technical problem in the nominating petitions submitted by the candidates when they filed for office earlier this

At issue is what to do with candidates who failed to list on their nominating petitions the political district in which

Santorum beats Romney in Louisiana See OBAMA, Page A3
WASHINGTON (AP) — Rick Santorum won the Louisiana Republican presidential primary Saturday, beating front-runner Mitt Romney in yet another conservative Southern state. Although the victory gives Santorum bragging rights and at least eight more delegates, it does not change the overall dynamics of the race; the former Pennsylvania senator still dramatically lags behind Romney in the hunt for delegates to the GOP’s summertime nominating convention. Even so, Santorum’s win underscores a pattern in the drawn-out race.
The under-funded underdog has tended to win in Bible Belt states that include Tennessee, Mississippi and Alabama. Romney — a deep-pocketed, highly organized for mer Massachusetts governor — has persistently struggled in such heavily conservative regions. Said Santorum: “I’m not running as a conservative candidate for president. I am the conservative candidate for president.” Neither candidate was in the state as Louisiana Republicans weighed in. Nor was for mer House Speaker Newt Gingrich, who was trailing in
Louisiana. With half the precincts counted, Santorum had 49 percent to 26 percent for Romney. Gingrich was far back at 17 percent, followed by Ron Paul with 6 percent. Romney took a rare day off Saturday, with no public events. Santorum spent the day campaigning in Pennsylvania and next-up Wisconsin, which votes April 3 and represents one of his last chances to beat Romney in a Midwestern state. Santorum told voters in Milwaukee that he expected their state to be “the turnSee GOP, Page A3

Navajo Nation eyes Grand Canyon for development
An artist rendering of a proposed aerial tramway that would ferry tourists from the cliff tops of the east rim of the Grand Canyon to the water’s edge of the Colorado and Little Colorado Rivers below.
FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. (AP) — Generations of Navajo families have grazed livestock on a remote but spectacular mesa that overlooks the confluence of the Colorado and Little Colorado rivers. This is the East Rim of the majestic Grand Canyon — the last with no significant development. But ancestral tradition and the tranquility of the landscape could be subject to change if the Navajo government’s plans are realized for a resort and aerial tramway that would ferry tourists from cliff tops to water’s edge. The vast 27,000-square-mile Navajo Reservation abuts Grand Canyon National Park, and tribal leaders say they’re losing out on tourist dollars and jobs for their people by leaving the land undeveloped. Navajo President Ben Shelly recently signed a nonbinding agreement that lists the gondola, a restaurant, a half-mile river walk, a resort hotel and spa and RV park among the attrac-
tions of a proposed development that he says will bring up to $70 million a year in revenue to the tribe and 2,000 jobs to the impoverished reservation. “We want people from all over the world to visit Navajo land and the Grand Canyon,” Shelly said. “We have many of the world’s wonders in our midst.” True enough, but the National Park Service already is voicing objections to the large-scale development on its eastern flank. Environmental organizations and some Navajos who call the area home also oppose the project. “This is just one more thing that is going to chip away at the solitude of the area, and it’s really not the appropriate type of development for that area,” said Alicyn Gitlin of the Sierra Club. Similar proposals for a tramway that would take tourists from the East Rim to the river have been opposed by the local community of Bodaway-Gap.
They oppose the scale and character of the current plan and want more say in what could be built there. The confluence, as locals call it, is a 100-mile drive off Interstate 40 from Flagstaff off a rough dirt road. Sagebrush, rolling hills, arroyos, canyons and desert mark the landscape where the Colorado meets the blue-green waters of the Little Colorado. It’s mostly quiet, save for the occasional helicopter tour over the Grand Canyon or the shouts from river rafters below. The land has remained undeveloped for decades because of a land dispute between the Navajos and the neighboring Hopi tribe, both of which claimed aboriginal ties to it. A construction ban implemented by for mer U.S. Commissioner of Indian Affairs Robert Bennett imposed a ban on home and land improvements in 1966. It was lifted in 2009, though little development has occurred on the 700,000 acres. The western edge of the Grand Canyon outside the national park boundaries belongs to the Hualapai Tribe, which has a horseshoeshaped glass bridge that juts out 70 feet over the canyon’s edge and gives tourists a view of the Colorado River 4,000 feet below. Most people visiting the Grand Canyon go to the South Rim within the national park. The North Rim, also within the park, is less developed, but has a seasonal lodge. The memorandum of agreement that Shelly signed with the Confluence Partners, LLC., on Feb. 21 doesn’t state the impacts of a development on the East Rim. But a member of the negotiating team, Deswood Tome, said the tribal government expects 3 million visitors a year as soon as 2015 and revenue to be between $40 million and $70 million
Roswell Daily Record
annually — up to a half of the tribe’s budget not including federal funds. No one lives at the overlook to the confluence but about a handful of people live nearby, and other families have said they want to move back since the construction ban ended. There is no water or electricity at the site and putting in the infrastructure would cost at least $60 million alone, which Tome said also could benefit residents. About 27 miles of dirt road would have to be paved to reach the site, and water would have to be piped in from miles away. At full build-out, the project could approach $1 billion, said Lamar Whitmer, of the Confluence Partners LLC. The tram would run from the East Rim and parallel the Colorado River before coming to a stop at the bottom of the canyon, where a restaurant would be located. A half-mile river walk, also running alongside the Colorado River, would give tourists a view of the confluence but stop short of it. The resort hotel and spa, other hotels, and commercial and retail space would be located on top of the canyon. The proposed attractions could create a jurisdictional dispute, depending on their distance from the Colorado River. The Navajos believe the reservation extends to the high water mark of the Colorado River, while the National Park Service says its boundary is a quarter -mile from the river’s bank along the 61-mile stretch of the Colorado before it meets the Little Colorado. Grand Canyon park officials also want to maintain the wilderness characteristics of the East Rim, which is popular with backcountry hikers and not easily accessible, and make sure endangered species like the humpback
Duke City doc quits health care post
SANTA FE (AP) — An Albuquerque physician appointed by Gov. Susana Martinez to a state office overseeing health care reform in New Mexico has resigned. The Santa Fe New Mexican reports that Dr. Dan Derksen cited resistance from top officials to move forward when he resigned earlier this week as director of the New Mexico Office of Health Care Reform. Derksen says there had been a shift in policy and that he had lost the battle over “policy approach and implementation” within the administration about the timeline for building a New Mexico health insurance exchange, which is meant

under the federal government’s health care reform law to help more people obtain health insurance. New Mexico has the nation’s second-highest uninsured rate in the nation. As envisioned, New Mexico’s exchange would function as a way to connect uninsured residents and small businesses without insurance with companies hoping to sell them a policy. “When one out of five New Mexicans are uninsured, this is isn’t something you can take a waitand-see approach on,” Derksen said. Derksen helped New Mexico win a $34 million Roadrunner Cash 1-12-14-26-34 Pick 3
MATINEES INDICATED BY( )SAT & SUN ONLY
for the governor praised Derksen for moving “this administration forward in setting up a framework to establish a statewide health insurance exchange in the face of great uncertainty from the federal government.”
But Martinez spokesman Greg Blair was clear that the administration will “move forward with establishing a state-based health insurance exchange in a thoughtful and deliberative manner while reviewing the work that has been done up to this point.”
Martinez herself referred to the unknowns surrounding the law last week when she told a reporter, “Why go out and start to develop that exchange with the Legislature in a per manent way when it could change overnight? That’s a waste of a lot of time and energy.”

federal grant last year to start building the exchange’s computer framework and had submitted a proposal to the state’s Human Services Department recently to apply for more federal dollars to add flesh to that framework, only to be met with resistance, he said. Since Derksen’s resignation, the Martinez administration has put on hold the process of selecting a winner of a $24 million contract to build the exchange’s computer framework, despite bidders submitting proposals two weeks ago. State of ficials say the federal gover nment was aware of the hold the state has put on the $24 million contract and that the money, which is part of the $34 million grant New Mexico won last year, is not in jeopardy.

chub are protected, said park Superintendent Dave Uberuaga. Environmental groups say the noise and light pollution would be unwelcome. “It’s not Disneyland,” said Lynn Hamilton of the Grand Canyon River Guides, a canyon advocacy and environmental group. “It’s one of the seven natural wonders of the world. To mar that somehow with such commercialism right there, in your face would just seem contrary to what the value of Grand Canyon is.” Environmentalists applauded the Navajo government for throwing out plans for an airport, verbally at least, though it remains in the written agreement. Shelly has vowed to protect sacred sites, and although he initially opposed any development at the confluence, his spokesman says it is one of the premier locations on the reservation to draw tourist dollars. But the tribe still must pursue land and leases from a community that appears largely opposed. This is what Tyrone Tsosie called his backyard as a child. He recalled his grandmother taking him out to the confluence and showing him how to use cor n pollen — a staple of Navajo tradition — to pray to the rivers for blessings. Yucca root, white flowers and sage that grow there also are used for traditional and medicinal purposes, he said. “The main thing right now for my generation, we don’t want that kind of change, development out there because we don’t want to lose that scenery and lose all those memories,” said Tsosie, who no longer lives in the area. Said Tome, “We’re not always going to have 100 percent agreement, but we’re going to do our part to bring development and jobs here to Navajo.”
Bandelier searches for art for new annual pass
BANDELIER NATIONAL MONUMENT (AP) — Bandelier National Monument is calling on photographers and artists from around the country to submit work for display on the park’s 2013 annual pass.
The park will be accepting submissions through April 4.
Park Superintendent Jason Lott says if Bandelier has inspired someone’s creative side, this is a chance to show off. The winner and two runners-up will receive free entry to all the National Parks for one year. The winner will also receive a personal tour of Bandelier. The winning entries will be announced April 27.
Bandelier sells hundreds of annual passes each year. Proceeds from the passes help fund special projects and programs at the park.
Bandelier showcases a collection of prehistoric Native American archaeological sites and a historic visitor center at the bottom of Frijoles Canyon.

I teach through story, because long after people forget the facts and figures — the data — they will remember the story.” Women’s education and empower ment was the theme for this year’s celebration, something Whetsel said is the key to progress in society. “You can’t do much of anything without (education),” Whetsel said. “Not these days, especially. Entrepreneurialism and education go hand-inhand. Our corporate execu-

I really want to think that, in the background of everything, no matter what your education is, no matter what field you go into, it’s making sure that at the end of the day, you can sit down and say you did the right thing.” Gomez said she also believes education and empower ment remain intrinsically tied together. “Those two things are near and dear to my heart.

The odds of survival are good. More than 70 percent of heart transplant recipients live at least five years, although survival is a bit lower for people over age 65. Cheney suffered a heart attack in 2010, his fifth since the age of 37. That same year, he had surgery to have a small pump installed to help his heart keep working. Called a “left ventricular assist device,” or LVAD, that device took over the
job of the heart’s main pumping chamber, powered by special batteries worn in a fanny pack. It helps a person live a fairly normal life while awaiting a heart transplant, although some people receive it as permanent therapy. It was one of the few steps left, short of a transplant, to stay alive in the face of what he acknowledged was “increasing congestive heart failure.”

Famous sheriff Pat Garrett rides again in Roswell
SANTA FE – New Mexico’s most famous lawman finally will be honored on Saturday, March 31, as Roswell celebrates the installation of a larger-than-life statue of former Sheriff Pat Garrett, sitting tall in the saddle. Garrett was elected to track down Billy the Kid. He had to do it more than once, finally ending the Kid’s life in July 1881. Then in 1896, he was asked to track down the cold-blooded killers of Col. Albert Jennings Fountain and his 8-year-old son, Henry. Although he succeeded in both dangerous responsibilities, his bravery has never been recognized anywhere in our state, according to historian Mike Pitel. The only monument to Garrett is a headstone in a crowded family plot in the Las Cruces Masonic Cemetery. That, of course, was courtesy of his family. Roswell and Las Cruces were Garrett’s two main places of residence during his lifetime. His
INSIDE THE CAPITOL
widow, Apolinaria, remained in Las Cruces after Garrett’s murder outside of town in 1908. Why was Garrett never recognized for his bravery and courage? He always seemed to be on the wrong side. Billy the Kid was the hero of the little guy, the underdog, the oppressed. Garrett was just doing his job but that job aided the Santa Fe Ring which controlled New Mexico. Today they would be known as the one-percenters. And then there was the way in which Billy the Kid was killed. Garrett said he shot from the dark of Pete Maxwell’s room. That isn’t the way John
Roswell Daily Record
Wayne would have done it. Others said Garrett tied Billy’s girlfriend Paulita Maxwell to the bed in her room and ambushed Billy when he walked in. Others say Garrett shot someone else and claimed it was the Kid. In the Fountain trial, the defendants were acquitted. Garrett never could catch a break. He was tall, angular, handsome, a good shot and a good horseman. Many historians regard the night he shot and killed the Kid as the moment the nation perceived that law and order had finally taken root in the territory of New Mexico, moving us a little closer to statehood. Some say Garrett was a disagreeable sort who couldn’t keep friends. You couldn’t prove that by my grandparents, all of whom lived in Las Cruces at the time of the Garretts. They all thought highly of the family. One grandmother even confided in me that Garrett didn’t kill Billy the Kid. He
was such a nice man, she said, that he never would kill anybody. I imagine a sheriff candidate in those days with a reputation for being too nice to kill anyone wouldn’t have a chance of getting elected. But that’s the way my grandmother saw it in the 1940s. The dedication of Garrett’s heroic, outdoor statue will commence at 10 a.m. adjacent to the Chavez County Courthouse on North Main Street between Fifth and Sixth streets. Among the speakers at the Garrett statue dedication will be Garrett biographer Leon Metz, of El Paso and state Sen. Rod Adair, who represents portions of Chaves and Lincoln counties. Among the guests of honor will be at least two of Garrett’s grandchildren, Susannah Garrett of Santa Fe and Jarvis Patrick Garrett of Albuquerque. Among Summers’ other commissioned sculptures in Roswell is a larger-than-life bronze of famed
cattle baron John Chisum, mounted alongside his lead steer, a Texas longhorn named Ol’ Ruidoso. The statue was dedicated in 2001. According to Pitel, Garrett’s pitched-roof, six-room adobe, where he and his wife, Apolinaria, lived from 1880-1891 still stands at the north end of Bosque Road east of Roswell. The thick-walled residence is on the State Register of Historic Properties and the National Register of Historic Places but is currently being used as a private storage facility. The residence is also where Garrett’s longtime friend, ex-reporter and former Roswell postmaster Ash Upson wrote the first 15 chapters of Garrett’s 1882 book “The Authentic Life of Billy the Kid.” (Write to Jay Miller at 3 La Tusa, Santa Fe, NM 87505; by fax at 984-0982; or by e-mail at email@example.com)
Return of Dog Tags a Way to Say Thanks In 1945, a young, orphaned Lakota Sioux teenager hitchhiked 400 miles to a Marine recruiter in order to put his life on the line. World War II still raged, and choosing a career as a U.S. Marine was a dangerous pipeline to adulthood. As a result of his choice, that teenage boy would spend 22 years of his life as a Marine, participating in not one, but three wars: World War II, Korea and Vietnam. While serving his country in Vietnam, the boy who became a man as a leatherneck lost his dog tags with good reason to believe he’d never see them again. He was wrong. This past weekend, retired U.S. Marine Jonathon Crazy Bear was reunited with his lost tags — a very fitting present for his 81st birthday -- courtesy of the actions of a few very good men. Crazy Bear’s dog tags were found by a volunteer working for Operation Smile, an international organization that helps poor children around the world receive muchneeded medical attention for the joint birth defects of cleft palates and lips. The volunteer, a man named Ray Milligan, was in Vietnam when he came across Crazy Bear’s dog tags. Milligan, who is a retired police chief from New Jersey, says that while working with the charity in Vietnam, he found a vendor selling hundreds of old, recovered dog tags as souvenirs. Milligan purchased all of them with the idea of returning them to their original owners — American soldiers, sailors, airmen and Marines. Thus far, dozens of sets of dog tags have been given back to their rightful owners or their families. On hand to honor Crazy Bear as he was reunited with the dog tags he lost in Vietnam were members of the Nam Knights, a military law enforcement motorcycle club, along with many of Crazy Bear’s friends and family. It was, for everyone concerned, a moment filled with emotion, as well as one that none of them will soon forget. Many decades after so many young American lives were cut short during the struggle in Vietnam, the people of this country have recognized that the vast majority of those who went to that war were and are individuals of great integrity and heroism. Although they were subjected to both scorn and mistreatment when they returned to this country, the American participation in both Iraq and Afghanistan has helped put their service into perspective: For decades the people of this country have appeared content to blame the warriors for our difficulties in wars rather than accepting the responsibility themselves as well as that of the people they put in office. Men and women such as Crazy Bear set the example for sacrifice and everyday heroism, and that example has been embraced by generations who followed them. The return of long-lost dog tags may seem like a small thing, but it is another way of saying thank you to those who fought in Southeast Asia — that what they did there mattered, and so do they.

Because keloids look like growths, some of my patients who have them are worried they may turn into cancer. You may not like how they look, but they do not become cancerous.

Taking care of the basic rules in life OPINION
Roswell Daily Record
I think we often make life more complex than it really is. Where do we get to if we strip life down to its essentials? I enjoyed attending the Character Counts Teachers Awards dinner and program a few weeks ago. More than 100 teachers were recognized in our community. I believe that we cannot recognize our teachers enough for what they do. I appreciate Character Counts’ annual recognition of those who devote their lives to pouring themselves into our youth on a daily basis. God bless each one of you. When I run in the mornings I enjoy listening to motivational books. Over a series of runs I listened to a book by Ron Clark called “The Essential 55.” A New York T imes bestseller, it was written by a man who, at a young age, backed into the teaching profession. He began his teaching career teaching fifthgraders in a small town of 600 in North Carolina and later taught in Harlem in New York City. He received national recognition when he was awarded the prestigious Disney’s Teacher of the Year Award. What Mr. Clark does in his book is set forth 55 rules that he used with his

students to teach them about how to conduct themselves both in his class and outside of school to equip them for a lifetime ahead. As I listened to the book, it soon struck me that the basics he was teaching apply to adults as much as they do to his fifth-graders. I will cover some of the rules that Mr. Clark writes about: Rule 2: Make eye contact. When someone is speaking, keep your eyes on him or her at all times. If someone makes a comment, tur n and face that person. Making eye contact shows confidence as well as respect for the person you are interacting with. Our actions will be much more effective if they come with eye contact. Rule 6: If you are asked a question in conversation, you should ask a question in return. If someone asks, “Did you have a nice weekend?” You should answer the question and then ask a question in return. For example, Me: “Did you have a nice weekend?”, You: “Yes, I had a great time. My family and I went shopping. What about you? Did you have a nice weekend?” It is only polite to show others that you are as interested in them as they
are in you. This is good advice for any of us. Often we get so wrapped up with talking about ourselves that we don’t think about asking the other person in our conversation what is going on in their world. Asking a question of the other person gives her the chance to speak about herself. Rule 9: Always say thank you when I give you something. If you do not say it within three seconds after receiving the item, I will take it back. There is no excuse for not showing appreciation. Mr. Clark emphasized this rule by calling it a “major” rule. Mr. Clark would literally take back a cookie or a homework pass if he was not thanked immediately when the gift was given. I know this sounds harsh, but if it teaches a child to express gratitude and the student carries this manner with them for the rest
said: “I think there’s never been a more exciting time ... (to) really talk about redistributing wealth and power.” Again, the theme being that America is an unjust society that needs a socialistic overhaul, and now is the time to make that happen. And Lerner may be on to something. Presently, we are a nation adrift. We are deeply divided on the fundamentals: capitalism, the power of the federal
government, the rights of the have-nots. These are the things the upcoming election will address. It really is all about “Obama money,” which is really our money. How much should be spent, and where should it go? The battle lines are drawn. At stake: the future of the USA.

of their years, it is a lesson well taught. Rule 11: Surprise others by performing random acts of kindness. Go out of your way to do something surprisingly kind and generous for someone at least once a month. Mr. Clark points out that on a child’s birthday or at Christmas, nice things happen for a child, but what about the rest of the year. Why not give a gift when it is not expected? Do a random act that is kind for another just out of the blue. Send a card, bake cookies, buy a small gift. The possibilities are endless and will brighten the world of another. Rule 29: There are several manners dealing with food that you must follow. I call these my ABCs of Etiquette. Mr. Clark then goes into 26 specific rules on etiquette. He talks about putting your napkin on your lap, not putting your elbows on the table, not chewing with your mouth open, not reaching over another’s plate, looking the waiter in the eye, and so on. Basic rules, but many people never learned these at home. Rule 36: If you approach a door and someone is following you, hold the door. If the door opens by pulling, pull it open, stand

to the side, and allow the other person to pass through first, then you walk through. If the door opens by pushing, hold the door after you pass through. A simple act of kindness that shows respect to others and can raise the day of another with very little effort. Rule 37: If someone bumps into you, even if it was not your fault, say “Excuse me.” The point here is that it is proper etiquette to express kindness even if the act was beyond your control. Mr. Clark taught his students that even if they were not at fault in a bump, they should communicate as if it were the result of something they did. It is the polite thing to do regardless of the circumstances of the bump. Rule 49: Stand up for what you believe in. You shouldn’t take no for an answer if your heart and mind are leading you in a direction that you feel strongly about. This rule could be a column all by itself.

Keep everything in perspective and focus on the good in your life. Rule 51: Live so that you will never have regrets. If there is something you want to do, do it! Never let fear, doubt, or other obstacles stand in your way. If there is something you want, fight for it with all of your heart. If there is something you want to do, go for it and don’t stop until you make it happen. If there is something you want to be, do whatever is necessary in order to live out that dream.

If a scar becomes enlarged, itchy, uncomfortable, interferes with the movement of a joint or creates an unacceptable cosmetic effect, discuss treatment options with your doctor.

Obama embracing oil...too little too late? Dear Editor:
It is the height of hypocrisy for the president of the United States to come to southeastern New Mexico to show his support of the domestic oil and gas industry when, for the past three years, he has attacked the same industry at every opportunity. The President has repeatedly said that he wants to end “subsidies” for what he has called “the fuel of the past,”but with gasoline approaching $4 a gallon and an election only eight months away, he has suddenly decided to embrace the industry that he has long demonized. The Wall Street Journal reports that the president’s 2013 budget, just like his prior three budgets, includes a dozen or so tax increases that would raise the industries’ liability by $44 billion over the next decade, according to the White House. The American Petroleum Institute puts the figure closer to $85 billion.The oil and gas industry paid about $36 billion in corporate taxes in 2009, which is the latest year for which data is available. That figure does not count excise taxes, state taxes, rents, royalties, fees and bonus payments. All told, the oil and gas industry pays the government $86 million every day, which is far more than government collects from any other industry. The president constantly states that “big oil” is not paying its “fair share.” The Tax Foundation estimates that between 1981 and 2008 oil and gas companies sent more dollars to Washington and the various state capitols than they earned in profits for their shareholders. As an example, ExxonMobil said that in the five years prior to 2010 it paid $59 billion in total U.S. taxes while it earned $40.5 billion domestically. That figures out to $1.45 in taxes for every $1 in profit. Exxon’s 2010 tax bill was three times larger than its domestic profits. Not paying their fair share? And the president has the audacity to say the the oil and gas industry is subsidized? The Wall Street Journal reports that the effective tax rate for nuclear power is a negative 99.5 percent; that sounds like a subsidy. What about the president’s pet energy sources, wind and solar. Generating wind energy is taxed at a minus 163.8 percent and solar is a minus 244.7 percent, and that was before the 2009 stimulus and things like our Solyndra investment. The direct cash handouts that wind and solar get are true subsidies. As for the “subsidies” for oil and gas that President Obama wants to get rid of, they are deductions from taxes that cover the cost of doing business and earning income to be taxed in the first place. Quoting the Wall Street Journal now “What Mr. Obama really means is that he wants to put the risky and capital intensive process of finding and extracting and producing oil and gas at a competitive disadvantage against other businesses. He does so because he ultimately wants to make them more expensive than his favorites, the wind, solar, and ethanol industries.” The president tells us that he wants lower prices at the pump, yet all of his energy policy decisions will lead to higher prices. Shame on you, Mr. President, shame on you. Sincerely, Candy Spence Ezzell State Representative District 58
Roswell needs to grow
Dear Editor; I applaud and echo the sentiments of Dave Clary, “Letters to the Editor” Sunday mar.18, regarding the failure of the increase of the gross receipt tax in the recent election. I consider myself a pretty “typical and average” resident. I know a little about a lot of things and not a lot about some things. I don’t attend meetings and I don’t research or study everything I read, see or hear. But that is what makes me a typical resident. if something or someone sounds too good to be true, and we are being asked to vote a certain way, I do listen and then use common sense when I vote. Common sense told me that a million+ dollars doesn’t go very far these days and I couldn’t see that money making much of a difference in Roswell as a whole and it didn’t make sense that this money would do much to bring businesses to Roswell. The amount wouldn’t have affected me much, but how that money was going to be

be honest. Even if you have done something wrong, it is best to admit it to me, because I will respect that, and oftentimes I will forget any disciplinary measures because of your honesty. Rule 54: Carpe Diem. You only live once, so don’t waste it. Life is made up of special moments, many of which happen when caution is thrown to the wind and
used bothered me a great deal. Over the years I have heard promises and ideas again and again that involved improving the city in order to bring in more residents and more businesses and yet it seems like very few of these schemes actually materialize or become a success. Money has been spent on master plans and studies and pie-in-thesky ideas like a UFO amusement park and then the ideas just sort of fade away and no one mentions it again. In the six years I have been here, I have had five doctors because they all keep moving away. Why? We have two beautiful hospitals but patients still have to travel to Albuquerque or Texas for major care. Why? Veterans cannot receive local care at all unless it is a life or death situation. Why? Crime is up and once again, the police force is down. Why? Schools are receiving failing ratings. Why? Businesses come and just as quickly they go. Why? The mall is like a ghost town. No new major stores or sitdown franchise restaurants in years. Why? Many businesses have a difficult time finding qualified employees who can pass a drug test! Many areas of our city are deteriorating or eyesores in need of demolition or repair. These are important issues that face current residents and certainly would be a major consideration to a new business thinking of relocation. Dave is absolutely correct, our leaders need to focus on improving Roswell in many areas in order to appeal to businesses who are thinking of relocating AND also for the benefit of the people who live and work here now. Like Dave, I would support a tax increase to make Roswell better, not just bigger. This latest plan was not enough bang for the buck!

Dear Editor: I am writing to be heard by my fellow citizens who pay their property taxes, serve their country, state, county or municipality in one way or another. We have mortgages, do business here, shop here and raise our families here. It seems that some of the Roswell public officials and city counselors forget who they work for. They work for us and tend to take it for granted sometimes. There are many state statutes, county and city ordinances still on the books that aren’t enforced. They were ill advised and not popular when the lawmakers passed them and they didn’t pass the common sense test of having to enforce them. Like so many of us that have served this country to stay free from government oppression. I live on a street that is not heavily traveled and usually only us living here travel it at all. I was in Iraq when we had our last big hail storm that destroyed so many house roofs, windows and automobiles and personal property that we all work hard for. The flood of contractors arrived which happens after these storms to fix cars and roofs and trees. I was dealing with this via the Internet and sandstorms of Iraq. Many of you know how hard it is to get a contractor to come when you live here and not 8,000 mile away. I hired a crew to construct a carport made to match my house in quality and looks. It improved my property appraisal and my neighbors compliment me on it. It is not attached to the house and is not concreted, it’s structurally sound. It’s too close to the curb although it’s a good 3 feet before my sidewalk. It’s called the length of the car. If it was shorter the prevention of property being destroyed would be mute. If I have the right to defend my property and family from theft and vandalism when did we surrender those rights to the city of roswell code enforcement? It’s not in the Constitution anywhere the city shall have the right to over-ride the Constitution, does it? Did I miss that part while serving three years in Iraq for their rights and two years in Kosovo for their rights? It’s been here for 5 years, now you say it doesn’t meet code and I have no permit. Who was giving these contractors permission to operate in the city then? All of this could have been avoided by being a little more diligent. I wrote my city counselors in June and sent pictures of the structure; they didn’t respond. I need a lawyer whom I’ll pay to fight this. Terry Gallagher Roswell
people take action and seize the day. Rule 55: Be the best person you can be. There they are, rules to live life by designed for fifth-graders, but important to people of all ages. My challenge to you is to sharpen the essentials of your world. Each time you interact with another, you leave an impression on the other person. It may be healthy or it may not. The rules Mr. Clark teaches equips a generation of children to better handle the world they will
spend the rest of their lives in. Follow these rules and add value to others as you seek to become the best you can be. Just a thought...

Dear Editor: Every day we are learning more about the tragedy in Afghanistan. All we hear is about a search for the cause of the incident. Alcohol has been mentioned as well as other problems. The cause of the tragedy lies with the Army itself. An Army that would continue to send one of its members back into a combat zone after serving three other tours in a combat zone, especially a member with service-connected wounds. He may not have had a wound one can see such as an amputated limb, but he was wounded just as well — traumatic brain injury and PTSD. Did this incident occur because we have to continually recycle these troops to support these endless wars? Are we so short of personnel that this has to happen? Is it time to accept the fact that more people need to share the burden of the sacrifice required to keep these wars going? Perhaps a return to a selective served draft is needed. What is the solution here? He should have been profiled to stateside duty only with continued medical support and reviewed periodically for consideration for continued retention on active duty before he was deployed to Afghanistan. Sincerely your, William F. Briney Roswell
Obama’s “new flame” — oil and gas — leads him to Maljamar
Dear Editor: President Obama visited our part of New Mexico this week because he has “got religion” — about American oil and gas. The president suddenly carried out a trip to our own Maljamar, N.M., about as suddenly as he has become a convert to the importance of drilling for oil and gas right here in America. Mr. Obama, who has been incessantly playing the “green energy” card for the past three years, now likes oil and gas drilling right here in America. Interesting that he has converted during an election year, after his administration has spent (wasted?) hundreds of millions of dollars of Federal tax dollars on grants and loans to now— failed (or failing) companies like Solyndra solar and the Fisker electric car company. Gasoline prices at the pump are climbing, and hurting his re-election chances. So Mr. Obama apparently has grasped the obvious — if ony just through November -that going “all in” for green subsidies while restricting American oil and gas production has contributed to greater imports and higher pump prices. In attempting to cover his administration’s anti— oil and gas tracks of the past three years, Mr. Obama said on February 23 in Miami: “Under my administration, America is producing more oil today than at any time in the last eight years. That’s why we have a record number of oil rigs operating right now.” (This from the same person who, along with his energy secretary, once was infatuated with much higher, European— level gasoline prices in America as a way to force people to “go green.”) With his newfound infatuation with
Leave your mark
domestic drilling, the president is attempting to take credit for something that he did not enable, and in fact has hindered. Consider this February 27 report from Energy & Environment (E&E):
“Domestic oil production may be at an alltime high nationwide, but the increase is primarily occurring on state and private lands rather than on federal land and waters, where production appears to have dropped significantly in 2011, according to the most recent government data. “Production of natural gas on public lands and waters in fiscal 2011 dropped 11 percent from the previous year, accorrding to Interior Department data. Oil production dipped nearly 14 percent... (M)uch of the new production appears to be occurring on state and private lands in oil—rich places such as North Dakota and Texas...”
Although the president visited a federal oil and gas lease site at Maljamar presumably to counter the notion private lands, rather than federal leases, are the big producers, it should be noted that any recent production increases that have occurred in specific federal sites, as the E&E publication put it, “should be attributed to the leasing and permitting decisions of previous administrations, given the long lead time to develop energy projects.”
The Obama administration has been doing on the federal level the same type of things that Bill Richardson and his allies did, or tried to do, here in New Mexico — restrict proven and safe energy sources, while throwing tax money at unproven technologies that have the words “solar” or “green” attached to them.
When pricing realities begin to set in, as they are now for Mr. Obama in the midst of his campaign, we see a transparent and almost amusing attempt to put a new proenergy face on things. Looking at the record of the past three years should disprove some of the current happy talk about how good domestic drilling is.
Even now, while arranging the Maljamar “pump-jack photo op” event, the President is furiously pushing for a double tax on America’s biggest oil companies operating overseas (apparently supported by Senators Jeff Bingaman and Tom Udall) and of course vetoed the Keystone XL pipline.
Karen Harbert, president of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s Institute for 21st Century Energy, could not have known about the Obama visit to Maljamar a few days ago, but her points are certainly valid with reference to this Eddy County presidential visit:
“Because of the restrictions this administration has placed on accessing public land, as well as the ever -increasing amount of red tape, the energy industry has moved to produce oil and gas on private lands. The fact that the administration would repeatedly try to take credit for this shows a troubling lack of understanding of energy production in this country.”

Scammers are out there, and they want your money! Roswell Daily Record
I don’t usually like to repeat the same topic in this column very often, but somehow this one seems appropriate. About six months ago, I wrote about a particular scam which is most commonly called the “grandson scam.” Well it’s come up again in our community! And once again, the scam was intended to con a lovely lady who I am proud to call a friend. Fortunately, however, in this case my friend did not fall for it. She told me the familiar story about receiving a phone call from someone who claimed to be one of her grandsons. We’ll call the caller “Frank.”
Well, Frank went on to describe that he was in some trouble in Peru or somewhere and needed help. After all, Grandma, he was in jail in Lima, Peru! He and some friends had gone on a trip to Latin America, and unknown to him, someone had some drugs. Well, they were stopped for speeding, and of course the police found the drugs. Frank couldn’t get in touch with his mom, who is a teacher and in class right now, and Dad is out of town at an important business convention in Chicago – can’t be disturbed. Frank did the only thing he could think of. He
called his beloved Grandmother! He pleaded, of course, for some bail money or else he would have to spend the weekend in this horrible foreign jail! This is the usual script for the grandson scam, one of many scams which is quite common across the United
States. The scenarios may change a little, but the overall story remains the same. Sometimes there will be other players in the scam who make it even more plausible. On this day, however, my friend did not buy the story. I was proud when she told me that she had asked enough questions and demanded so much information that the caller got frustrated enough that he just hung up the phone! Good for her! I have written this column again just to remind all of us – young and old – that we must be extremely careful with phone calls,
Roswell Independent School District’s Kerry Moore, food services specialist, was recently selected to participate in the School Nutrition Association’s exclusive Executive Management Program, taught by top ranked faculty members of Georgetown University’s McDonough School of Business. On March 3, Moore participated in the program, “Meeting the Bottom Line: A Strategic Approach to Managing Change.” School nutrition pro-
grams across the country face historic challenges as they rise to meet tough new federal nutrition standards, while managing increasing participation, complex regulations, evolving technology and more. The invitation-only executive management program, led by experts in the field of change management, is designed to assist participants in developing a solid framework for leading change. The day-long session, offered free of charge, taught the keys to identify-
ing and implementing strategic steps to develop a change management framework. “More than ever before, school meal programs require organizational leaders, armed with the skills to address challenges and lead theri teams to success,” said SNA CEO Frank DiPasquale. “SNA is pleased to offer the executive management program to provide leaders in school nutrition with proven strategies to strengthen their programs.”

â€˜Survivorâ€™ star eyeing Ind. governorâ€™s race
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) â€” For mer reality TV star Rupert Boneham said he thinks he has a real shot at becoming Indianaâ€™s next governor after being nominated as a third-party choice Saturday. The fan favorite from 2004â€™s â€œSurvivor: All-Starsâ€? was unopposed for the Libertarian Partyâ€™s nomination, which came during the partyâ€™s state convention in Indianapolis. â€œMy aim, honestly, is to win governor,â€? Boneham said in a phone interview afterward. â€œI really feel I have a strong chance of pulling not just the Libertarian vote, but the independent vote, the undecid-
ed vote, and maybe even some votes from Democrats and Republicans.â€? He will face Republican Mike Pence and Democrat John Gregg in Novemberâ€™s gubernatorial election. Current Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels is limited to two ter ms and cannot run again. â€œWe have a gover norâ€™s candidate in Rupert Boneham that can reach out to the 70 percent of the population that does not vote, and bring them into the process,â€? state chairman Sam Goldstein said in a statement. â€œHe brings a level of name ID that our previous candidates have not had, which is impor-
tant in politics.â€? The tie-dye wearing Boneham won $1 million on the â€œSurvivorâ€? series and donated some of the prize to his Rupertâ€™s Kids charity, which provides mentoring and job training to at-risk youths. Boneham said heâ€™s been a Libertarian for more than 20 years, but didnâ€™t become active in the party until this year. He said he wants less government intrusion at the state level, especially in education. Libertarian 2008 gubernatorial nominee Andy Horning, a former Republican who also has run for Congress and mayor of Indianapolis, was unop-

posed for the partyâ€™s U.S. Senate nomination. â€œMy job is to be in place if people should ever have an epiphany,â€? he said. â€œThe two-party system is just a crazy crony network.â€? But despite polls showing high levels of voter dissatisfaction and a contested
Republican senatorial primary, Hor ning saw the odds as being against an epiphany this year. â€œWeâ€™ve all heard this before. Every election, everybodyâ€™s fed up,â€? he said. The party also is fielding candidates for five of Indianaâ€™s nine congressional

NA T I O N A L BRIEFS BRONCOS INK ANOTHER QB
ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — A person familiar with the negotiations says the Denver Broncos have signed former Chicago Bears backup quarterback Caleb Hanie to a two-year deal to back up Peyton Manning. The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the deal hadn’t been announced by the team. ESPNChicago.com first reported the deal earlier Saturday. Hanie, 26, who played at Colorado State, spent the last three seasons in Chicago. He replaced an injured Jay Cutler in the NFC championship two years ago and nearly rallied the Bears past the Packers. But he went 0-4 in place of Cutler last season, including a loss at Denver. The Broncos signed Manning on Monday and then dealt Tim Tebow to the New York Jets. They also considered signing free agent Billy Volek.

to tie the game at 5 and Garcia put Estancia ahead when he crossed after an Eric Newsom single. Newsom scored shortly thereafter on a Cesar Quintana single. Two batters later, Quintana came around on a sacrifice fly by Joseph Jaquez. The Warriors, who had rallied back from an early 3-0 deficit with three runs in the third and two in the fourth, tried to stage their own seventh-inning rally, but it fell just short. Anthony Sanchez drove home Chris Bonham with a single up the third-base line to make it 8-6 with one out. Tyler Raines’ third sacrifice bunt of the game then put runners at second and third with two outs. Jacob Moody put the ball in play during the next at-bat, but his pop fly into right was hauled in by Jaquez to secure Estancia’s win.
That the Warriors put themselves in a position to win, Rapp said, showed heart. “I just thought it showed that our kids have a little bit heart and fight in them,” he said. “It would have been easy to just hang our heads with the bottom of the order coming up, but they battled, got men on base and scored a run. “We had the guy up there that we want. Jake (Moody) has hit the ball hard and he’s got about six hits in this tournament. If I could have picked somebody, it would have been him. He just got under it a little bit and flied out.” Stephen Bechtel took the loss for the Warriors (1-2). He gave up eight runs on nine hits and struck out three in seven innings. At the plate, Sanchez was 3 for 4 and Andrew Meeks was 2 for 4. Moody, Meeks, Bechtel and Sanchez each had RBIs.

CHICAGO (AP) — Luol Deng hit a follow-up shot at the buzzer in overtime and the Chicago Bulls beat the Toronto Raptors 102-101 on Saturday night for their NBAleading 40th victory. Chicago’s C.J. Watson drove for the basket and Toronto’s James Johnson blocked the attempt, but Deng got the ball and put it in the basket — a play officials reviewed to make sure it was in before the buzzer. Carlos Boozer had 24 points and 10 rebounds for the Bulls, Deng added 23 points and 10 rebounds, and Watson had 23 points. Johnson, an ex-Bull, scored 20 points for Toronto. Jose Calderon also had 20 points and 10 assists, and Gary Forbes had 12 points and 13 rebounds for the Raptors, but missed two free throws with 6.4 seconds left in overtime.
KNICKS 101, PISTONS 79 NEW YORK (AP) — Tyson Chandler had 15 points and tied a season high with 17 rebounds, and New York rebounded from its first loss under Mike Woodson to rout Detroit for the third time this season. Amare Stoudemire scored 17 points for the Knicks, who are 6-1 since Mike D’Antoni resigned. They lost 96-79 on Friday night in Toronto, but had no trouble with Detroit for the third time in three meetings this season. Carmelo Anthony finally got his shot to fall in the third quarter and finished with 15 points, while Jeremy Lin had 13. The bench put it away early in the fourth, allowing some banged-up Knicks to get some extra rest. Lin sat down with a sore left knee but could have returned, while Stoudemire went out with a sore lower back and the Knicks said at the time his return was questionable. Ben Gordon scored 20 points for Detroit, which lost its fifth straight.
CLIPPERS 101, GRIZZLIES 85 LOS ANGELES (AP) — Blake Griffin had 20 points and 10 rebounds, Chris Paul added 19 points and 13 assists, and Los Angeles beat Memphis to end its first threegame losing streak of the season. Randy Foye had 18 points to help the Clippers, playing the first of five home games in eight days, move within three games of the Lakers for the Pacific Division lead. Zach Randolph had 14 points and eight rebounds for Memphis. The Grizzlies have lost six of eight after an 11-2 stretch.
SPURS 89, HORNETS 86 NEW ORLEANS (AP) — DeJuan Blair scored 23 points and Tim Duncan had four key points down the stretch in the San Antonio’s victory over short-handed New Orleans. The Spurs, chasing Oklahoma City for the best record in the Western Conference, trailed by a point twice in the final 2 minutes. Duncan responded each time, atoning for a lackluster game by making two free throws and tipping in a missed shot with 1:19 left to give San Antonio the lead for good. Jarrett Jack had 27 points for the Hornets, 25 in the first three quarters. He also committed a turnover and missed a driving layup in the final 32.7 seconds.
Duncan finished with 13 points and seven rebounds.
HAWKS 95, WIZARDS 92 WASHINGTON (AP) — Joe Johnson scored nine of his 16 points in the fourth quarter, including a go-ahead 3-pointer in the final minute, and Atlanta erased a 16point deficit to beat Washington. Josh Smith added 20 points and nine rebounds to help the Hawks win their third consecutive game. Nene led the Wizards with 21 points and 11 rebounds for his 80th career double-double, and Jordan Crawford scored 20 points. Washington’s John Wall missed a potential tying 3-pointer right before the buzzer.
MAVERICKS 101, ROCKETS 99, OT HOUSTON (AP) — Dirk Nowitzki scored 31 points, Jason Terry added 24 and Brandan Wright had a career-high seven blocks in Dallas’ overtime victory over Houston. Shawn Marion had 12 points and a season-high 15 rebounds to help the Mavericks beat Houston for the fifth straight time. Goran Dragic scored 24 points, and Luis Scola added 19 for the Rockets. The game had 17 lead changes, 15 ties and a louder-than-usual crowd with the instate rival in town.
PACERS 125, BUCKS 104 MILWAUKEE (AP) — George Hill scored a season-high 24 points in Indiana’s victory over Milwaukee. Roy Hibbert added 16 points and nine rebounds to help the Pacers rebound from a home loss to Phoenix. Ersan Ilyasova had 22 points and eight rebounds for the Bucks. Monta Ellis, Milwaukee’s recent trade acquisition, scored 11 points, struggling after scoring nine in the first quarter. The game included a minor confrontation in the fourth quarter between Milwaukee’s Mike Dunleavy, a former Pacers player, and Indiana’s Tyler Hansbrough.
NETS 102, BOBCATS 89 NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — Deron Williams had 19 points and matched his season high with 14 assists and New Jersey beat Charlotte to snap a five-game losing streak. Kris Humphries added 20 points and 16 rebounds, and former Bobcat Gerald Wallace had 15 points to help the Nets sweep the four-game season series with the woeful Bobcats. Backup center Byron Mullens had 17 points to lead the Bobcats, who were coached by assistant coach Stephen Silas.

METAIRIE, La. (AP) — Former Atlanta Falcons linebacker Curtis Lofton has agreed to a five-year contract with the New Orleans Saints. Lofton, who was an unrestricted free agent, started all 16 games at middle linebacker for the Falcons last season. Jonathan Vilma is the Saints’ current starting linebacker and defensive captain, but Lofton also has the ability to play other linebacker spots. “Curtis is a versatile, hard-working player that has displayed a knack for being around the football, and more importantly, making plays on the ball,” Saints general manager Mickey Loomis said Saturday night in a release. “He has the ability to play all three linebacker positions and we feel that he’s just entering the prime of his career. We think he can come to New Orleans and fit in well and provide us with a significant contribution to our defense.” The 6-foot, 241-pound Lofton was a second-round draft choice by the Falcons in 2008 and has started 63 of his 64 games. In four seasons, Lofton has been credited with 577 tackles, four sacks, three interceptions, seven forced fumbles, one fumble recovery and 15 passes defended. The former Oklahoma standout led the Falcons with a career-high 170 tackles last season, to go along with a sack, a forced fumble, a fumble recovery and two interceptions, one of which he ran back 26-yards for a touchdown. The Saints were recently punished by the NFL for a bounty system, and Vilma’s name appeared in the report by the league. Commissioner Roger Goodell has said he will deal with player punishment at a later date.

Local briefs: Rader, French combine for no-hitter
RIO RANCHO — Austin Rader and Cody French combined for a no-hitter as Goddard improved to 5-5 with a 15-1 win over Santa Fe at the Rio Rancho Invitational, Saturday. Rader, who was on a 40-pitch limit, struck out nine in four innings of work, while French came in to finish the game in the fifth. Rocket coach Alan Edmonson said that he is easing Rader into the season. “Everything was working (for Austin),” he said. “This was his first real outing and he was throwing fastballs. We are trying to ease him into things. He has a bright future and I am trying to take care of him.” After two scoreless innings, Goddard exploded for 12 runs in the third and three in the fourth. Rader helped his own cause with three hits, while French, Christian Wentland and Caelin Wilcox each collected two hits for the Rockets.
NMMI 7-11, El Paso 3-10 The NMMI Bronco baseball team picked up a pair of conference wins on Saturday by sweeping both ends of a doubleheader with El Paso Community College. In Game 1, NMMI fell behind 2-0 in the top of the third, but runs in the third and the fourth tied the game at 2-2. The Broncos then broke the game open with a five-run fifth to pull away. Abdel Rivera gave up three runs on six hits in seven innings to get the win. Steven De La Cruz was 3 for 3 with two RBIs.

Regional final. And all Pitino could think afterward was, “Hate to do that to ya, kid.” “Tonight, it was very difficult because of the way the game ended, because they outplayed us for 32 minutes,” Pitino said. “And it really hurt inside. As much as I felt like celebrating, it really hurt because he did such a masterful job of coaching.” Russ Smith, who finished with 19 points, followed Behanan’s bucket with a pair of free throws and then Florida freshman Bradley Beal and teammate Kenny Boynton each missed chances to tie in the final seconds. Louisville made one more free throw to seal the game and reach its ninth Final Four, the second under Pitino, despite playing the final 3:58 without point guard Peyton Siva, who fouled out. Seventh-seeded Florida (26-11) went out in the regional final for the second straight year, with Donovan falling to 0-7 lifetime against the man who coached him on that Final Four team at Providence in
Buckeyes Continued from Page B1
In Game 2, the Broncos won in walk-off fashion in 10 innings when Julio Velazquez drove home De La Cruz with a single down the right-field line in the bottom of the 10th. NMMI had trailed 10-8 going to the bottom of the 10th, but posted three runs in the home half of the inning to get the victory. Tyler Gibson picked up the win in relief and went 4 for 5 with two runs scored. Sam Turcotte was 3 for 5 with two RBIs.
Dexter 10, Ruidoso 9 DEXTER — Dexter improved to 3-4 with a win over Ruidoso on Saturday at the Lindsey Callaway Tournament. Ruidoso scored at least one run in the first four innings, but the Demons kept pace by scoring a run in both the first and second inning and four in the third. The Warriors tied the game at six with two runs in the fourth, but Dexter took the lead with a three-run fifth. The Demons added an insurance run in the home half of the sixth and that run proved to be the decisive score as Ruidoso plated three in the seventh for the final margin. Demon coach Chanda Crandall said it was good to finish the tournament with a win. “It was very nice (to end with a win) and it sends us away on a positive going into next week,” she said. “We needed something positive to push us into practice next week.” Taylor Miles picked up the win on the mound for the Demons and was also
1987, hired him as an assistant at Kentucky a few years later and felt as proud as a papa when he watched Donovan win his two national titles in 2006 and 2007. “I said this earlier, for myself, I don’t think any of us like losing,” Donovan said. “But if someone said to me, ‘You have to lose a game, who would it be to?’ I would say him.” Louisville will take an eight-game winning streak on its trip to New Orleans. Awaiting is a possible matchup with Pitino’s old school, Kentucky, which will have to get by Baylor on Sunday to set up a grudge match to end them all. “We think they’re excellent. We think they’re great. I coached there. It’s great. Great tradition,” Pitino said. “But we want to be Louisville. We have a dif ferent mission. They have a different mission. But we both want to get to a Final Four and win a championship.” This game had a much more war m-and-fuzzy story line than that possible Bluegrass State matchup — a meeting between two men who say theirs is more of a fatherson relationship than anything else.
have to do.” Deshaun Thomas scored 14 with nine rebounds for Ohio State (31-7), which led by eight points with 59 seconds to play and held on after the Orange cut it to three. The Buckeyes made 13 of 14 free throws in the final 68 seconds and 31 of 42 from the line in all. Ohio State is making its first trip to the Final Four since 2007, when it lost in the national championship game to Florida. They had lost in the regional semifinals in each of the past two seasons, and Matta wasn’t even sure they would make it that far after a series of unimpressive practices. When the Buckeyes, who spent five weeks as the No. 2 team in the nation, closed out February with three defeats in five games — including a home loss to Wisconsin on Feb. 26 — Matta had more reason to worry. But he got the response he was hoping for. “That loss opened their eyes and said, ‘Hey, maybe we’re not as good as we think we are,”‘ Matta said. “Maybe it got us pointed in the right direction.” Brandon Triche scored 15 points and Baye Keita had 10 rebounds for Syracuse (34-3). The Orange were hoping for a return trip to New Orleans, where they won their only national championship in 2003. In a tightly officiated game that left Sullinger on the bench in foul trouble for most of the first half and Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim not-quite muzzled after picking up a technical foul, it came down to free throws. Syracuse was called for 29 fouls — its most in more than three years — despite playing its usual 2-3 zone. Boeheim didn’t like several of them. He picked up a technical for objecting to a foul in the first half, and he escaped another in the second half despite shouting his profane complaint across the court. At one point, he turned to Jeff Hathaway, the chairman of the NCAA selection committee who was sitting near the Syracuse bench, and made his case in person. Afterward, Boeheim gave a terse “No comment” when asked if the officials hurt the flow of the game. A statement from the officiating crew chief said Boeheim was given a technical for being out of the coaching box and gesturing about a call. “We’re not going to blame it on the refs,” said guard Scoop Jardine, who had 14 points and six assists. “I think we had a chance to win the game no matter what, with the refs or without them giving us any calls.”
But make no mistake. This was no heartwarmer. Donovan got under Pitino’s skin early in the second half during a timeout when he worked over the of ficials, who promptly called a foul against the Cardinals (30-9) when play resumed. “He called that,” Pitino shouted to the ref. “Why don’t you just give him a whistle?” Pitino couldn’t get a break for a while after that and when Siva picked up his fourth foul, the coach stomped onto the court and got hit with a technical. Erving Walker made four straight free throws and the Gators led by 11, setting the stage for what could’ve been Donovan’s fourth trip to the Final Four. But the team that went 8 for 11 from 3-point range in the first half went cold — really cold — not hitting any of nine attempts from beyond the arc in the second. The Gators missed six shots and committed one tur nover over the last 2:30. They didn’t score after Boynton’s layup gave them a 68-66 lead with 2:39 left. They finished with 14 turnovers to six for Louisville — probably the difference in a game in

Silver City 11, Goddard 4 Artesia 3, Roswell 0 Goddard 4, Roswell 3 ARTESIA — Goddard took home third place at the Artesia Invitational with a win over Roswell. In their second game of the day, the Rockets took the early lead on the Coyotes with two runs in the home half of the inning. Roswell tied it up with two runs in the third and took the lead by plating a run in the fourth. Goddard tied it up with a run in the fifth and took the lead in the sixth with a set play. With two outs in the bottom of the sixth, the Rockets had Kaitlyn Renteria on first base and Mileena Sanchez on third. Renteria got herself into a rundown, which enabled Sanchez to score before Renteria was tagged for the third out. Ashley Sommerville shut down the Coyotes (5-6) in the seventh to seal the victory. Sommerville pitched all seven innings against Roswell and struck out three. Renteria, Ammarie Rossi and Katie Shanor each collected two hits against the Coyotes. Jessica Wiggins took the loss for Roswell. At the plate, Tiffanie Bolanos and Natasha Chavez were each 2 for 4. Chavez also drove in two runs. “My hats go off to the Goddard Rockets,” which they still outshot Louisville 50 percent to 45. “What happens is, you can’t lose confidence,” Pitino said. “I kept telling our guys we’re going to the Final Four. Win the Big East tournament, we’re going to the Final Four. And they did.” They did it with a team pretty much void of stars. But the game’s best freshman on this day was not Beal, but rather Behanan, who was far less heralded than the Florida star coming out of high school, but outplayed him down the stretch when the trip to New Orleans was on the line. The freshman from Cincinnati scored 13 of his 17 points in the second half, including nine over the last 8:02 and Louisville’s last two field goals — both after Siva had fouled out with nine points and eight assists. Beal, meanwhile, matched Erik Murphy with a team-high 14 points and controlled this game for the first 37 minutes. But over the last 3, he tried twice to take the ball to the hoop, only to get denied by 6-foot-10 center Gorgui Dieng. Beal missed the desperation 3 in the
The Orange went to the line 25 times, making 20 foul shots. The frequent whistles left both teams struggling to get into a groove in the first half — there were only four baskets in the last 9:30. That seemed to be good news for Ohio State, which managed to stay with the No. 1 seed despite getting only 6 minutes from Sullinger, the star of the Buckeyes’ East Regional semifinal win over Cincinnati. “We got Sullinger in foul trouble early and we didn’t take advantage of it,” Boeheim said. “You know when he comes back in he’s going to be difficult, and he was.” Syracuse was already without 7-footer Fab Melo, who missed the tournament with academic issues, and replacement Rakeem Christmas picked up two quick fouls early in the second half to leave him with four. Ohio State opened a 4636 lead with under 14 minutes to play. Syracuse scored eight of the next nine points to make it a one-point game, but the Orange could never get back in the lead. They trailed by eight with 59 seconds left and cut it to three, but they needed the Buckeyes to miss free throws, and that didn’t happen. The loss ended a tumultuous season for Syracuse that began with accusations by two former ball boys that they were sexually abused in the 1980s by Bernie Fine, a longtime Syracuse assistant coach. Boeheim vigorously defended him, but later walked back his support in the face of new information. Fine, who was fired Nov. 27, has not been charged and has denied any wrongdoing. The school also revealed this month that it had selfreported possible violations of its internal drug policy by members of previous teams; the NCAA is investigating. But the biggest hit might
said Roswell coach Art Sandoval. “They did what they were supposed to do. But, the Rockets did us a favor because this will make us want to go back to work on Monday.” In Goddard’s first game against Silver City, Chastity Urban, Mara Thorp, Renteria and Danielle Hubbard each scored for the Rockets. In Roswell’s first game against Artesia, Bolanos, Marrissa Torres and Monica Bencomo each had two hits. Anissa Munoz took the loss in the circle.
NMMI 8, Glendale CC 1 THATCHER, Ariz. — NMMI swept doubles play in a convincing win over Glendale Community College on Saturday. Doubles wins for NMMI came from Litia Godinet and Adalyn Hazelman (first; 8-0), Samantha Dunn and Valentina Beresiarte (second; 8-2) and Alyssa Hawkins and Jazmine Burt (third; 8-2). Singles victories came from Godinet (first; 6-1, 6-1), Hazelman (second; 6-2, 60), Hawkins (third; 6-1, 5-7, 10-5), Burt (fifth; 6-0, 6-0) and Rachel Ballinger (sixth; 7-6, 7-5). Bronco coach Zeljka Vidic said that she was pleased with how her team played. “I am very pleased,” she said. “It was quite hot today and the girls played well from the start. We had a few close matches that could have went either way. It gave us things we can work on. Overall, they played well and were ready.”
waning seconds and also got called for traveling after stealing a wild pass from Smith while Louisville was nursing a one-point lead with 18 seconds left. The Gators came into the tournament losing four of five but won their first two games in the NCAAs by an average of 30. They looked as though they’d be playing in the Superdome next weekend, but then they fell apart. “It was a tough journey for us. I think we stuck with it and we played together as a team,” Beal said. “We got this far. I’m real proud of our guys. It’s just unfortunate we ended up losing today.” In the first half, Donovan looked like the better coach, though anyone would look good when his team is shooting that way. The Gators went 8 for 11 from 3, 6 for 10 from inside the arc and constantly harassed Louisville en route to a 41-33 lead. But Pitino didn’t become the first coach to take three programs to the Final Four for nothing. He scrapped the zone defense, had his players get up in the face of the Gators and it worked — though the Cardinals paid the price in foul trouble.
Behanan and Kyle Kuric each finished the game with four fouls. When Siva got his fourth and Pitino got his ‘T,’ the coach tried to settle things down, stepping up to Siva and saying, “It was a foul. Stop saying it wasn’t.” Whether he believed it or not, who knows? As for whether he thought a comeback was possible, especially playing the final 4 minutes without Siva on the floor? Well, Pitino did say in the leadup to this game that the 1987 trip to the Final Four made him believe anything’s possible. This is his first trip back since 2005, when Louisville also played a clunker of a first half against West Virginia — but rallied for an improbable win. This one had a different feel at the end, because this one was between family. The coaches shared a quick hug at center court after the final buzzer. “I said, ‘Billy, I feel bad. I feel terrible, man,”‘ Pitino said. “He said, ‘Are you kidding me, Coach? I am so happy for you.’ That just doesn’t happen in this world.”
have been the loss of Melo, Syracuse’s leading rebounder who also averaged 5.8 points per game. Even without him, the Orange beat North Carolina-Asheville and Kansas State to earn a trip to Boston, then survived a pair of potential game-winners to beat Wisconsin 64-63 on Thursday and advance to the regional final. Ohio State reached the round of eight by beating Loyola of Maryland and then Gonzaga before winning a Battle of the Buckeye State against Cincinnati in Boston on Thursday night. The Buckeyes were one of four teams from Ohio in the round of 16, and the only ones to make it to the regional finals. Ohio State is also the last remaining team from the Big Ten, which placed six teams in the NCAA tournament and four in the round of 16.
Tiger takes one-shot lead at Arnold Palmer Invite Roswell Daily Record
ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Even with a bizarre sequence of events that cost Tiger Woods a comfortable lead Saturday, he walked off the 18th green at the Arnold Palmer Invitational as close as he has ever been to ending 30 months without a PGA Tour victory. He had a one-shot lead, and no one in golf has a more formidable record as a frontrunner. He was hitting the ball so well that Woods had the putter in his hand for a birdie attempt on 38 consecutive holes. And he was at Bay Hill, where he already has won six times. “If you’re in the lead, you’ve done some good things,” Woods said after recovering from a late double bogey for a 1-under 71. “That’s how I’ve always looked at it. And it’s a nice position to be in.” Better yet would be posing with Palmer in a trophy presentation. But there’s still one round to go before that happens, and a familiar face alongside
him in the final group. Graeme McDowell, the former U.S. Open champion who rallied from four shots behind to beat Woods in the Chevron World Challenge at the end of 2010, didn’t make a birdie until the 17th hole but kept bogeys off his card for a 71. “There’s a fair bit of expectations on Tiger,” McDowell said. “He’s looking to complete the comeback tomorrow, because there’s no doubt he’s playing great. He’s got the ball under control. But he’s got to go out there and try to win tomorrow, the same way I do and a lot of other players that have got the opportunity to win.” It will be the 40th time Woods has taken the lead into the final round on the PGA Tour. He has failed to win just twice, one of those times as a 20-year-old in his third start as a pro. Woods was more interested in winning for the 72nd time on tour than the 30 months it has taken to get to this point. “I’m looking forward to
Griner, No. 1 Baylor advance in tourney
DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Brittney Griner capped a sensational performance with a two-handed dunk and Baylor stormed into the NCAA regional finals for the third straight year with an 83-68 rout of Georgia Tech on Saturday. Griner, who finished with 35 points, 10 rebounds and six blocks, got behind the defense and threw down her slam with 6:29 left in yet another rout for the Lady Bears — swinging briefly on the rim for good measure. It was the second straight game in which the 6foot-8 All-American dunked and the seventh slam of her college career. She’s now tied with former Tennessee star Candace Parker, whose two dunks in NCAA tournament play had been the most. Destiny Williams added 18 points on 9-for -10 shooting for the top-seeded Lady Bears (37-0), who play second-seeded Tennessee in the Des Moines Regional final on Monday night with the winner advancing to the Final Four.
tomorrow. I’m looking forward to getting out there and playing and competing again,” Woods said. “As far as what it would mean? It would mean No. 72. Not a bad number, either.” Woods last won a PGA Tour event at the BMW Championship on Sept. 13, 2009. He won in Australia two months later to close out his season, but his life changed forever a short time later in perhaps the most spectacular downfall of any athlete. That all seems to be such a distant memory, even two weeks ago when he withdrew in the middle of the final round at Doral with tightness in his left Achilles tendon. Woods cut a more familiar figure Saturday. “It was a solid day,” said Woods, who was at 11under 205. “Just happened to have one little fluke thing where a kid passed out.” He had a four-shot lead after a birdie on the 13th hole when he made what he called his one bad swing, pulling his tee shot into a buried lie in the bunker on the 14th for a bogey. On the 15th tee, an 18year-old passed out and a woman screamed when she saw it — all while Woods was in the middle of his swing. He was too far along to stop, and hooked his tee shot out-of-bounds near a swimming pool. That led to a double bogey, and McDowell tied him for the lead with his birdie on the 17th. Woods, however, hit a daring shot out of the fairway bunker and over the water to 20 feet for a two-putt birdie on the 16th to regain the lead.

Tiger Woods hits out of a bunker on the 14th hole during the third round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill in Orlando, Fla., Saturday. Woods was runner-up at the Honda Classic three weeks ago when he closed with a 62, though he never had the outright lead. He was in the second-to-last group at Pebble Beach, though he closed with a 75 and watched Phil Mickelson rally for the win. This time, it’s all on him. And he’ll be alongside McDowell, who last August was asked whether Woods’ mystique had eroded. Woods had not played for three months because of leg injuries, and McDowell was asked if that red shirt meant anything. “That’s his trademark,” McDowell said. “Really, I think that’s all it is right now. What it means to him is obviously a different thing. What it means to the rest of us ... it’s not really
something to be intimidated by anymore.” McDowell is aware how well Woods is playing, and how dominant Woods can be in the game. His focus was on a Bay Hill course that was dry, firm and reminiscent of some U.S. Open setups. “The golf course is going to be the main competitor tomorrow,” McDowell said. Indeed, it might not be just them. Ernie Els rekindled his hopes of getting into the Masters with six birdies in a round of 67 that left him only three shots behind. Ian Poulter had a 68 and also was tied for third, while Charles Howell III (68) and Sony Open winner Johnson Wagner (69) were four behind. Els is No. 62 in the world
and needs to crack the top 50 after Sunday to get an invitation to Augusta. He could get there by finishing alone in third place — provided Matteo Manassero doesn’t win in Morocco on the European Tour, or Howell doesn’t finish alone in second place at Bay Hill. Jason Dufner, who turned 35 on Saturday, had a birthday to forget. After driving into the water on the par-5 sixth and making double bogey, he followed with three straight bogeys for a 42 on the front nine. He shot 77. Bubba Watson was hanging around until he threeputted from just outside 3 feet for double bogey on the 11th. Doral winner Justin Rose twice made bogey on par 5s in a 74. Vijay Singh and Sergio Garcia each shot 75.
No. 2 Tennessee 84, No. 11 Kansas 73 DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Meighan Simmons scored 22 points off the bench and Tennessee rallied to beat Kansas and advance to its second straight regional final. Glory Johnson added 18 points for the Lady Vols (27-8). The Lady Vols trailed by as many as 14 in the first half, but they cut it to five by the break. Tennessee took the lead for good with a 19-9 run to open the second half, and Simmons had 16 points in the final 20 minutes. Angel Goodrich had 23 points and Aishah Sutherland 19 for Kansas (21-13), which fell to 0-3 in regional semifinals.
No. 2 Duke 74, No. 3 St. John’s 47 FRESNO, Calif. (AP) — Shay Selby took charge in the second half to finish with 18 points and seven assists, leading Duke over St. John’s in the regional semifinals. Chelsea Gray scored 13 points and Tricia Liston had 15 for the second-seeded Blue Devils (25-5) in what became a surprising rout. Duke moved within one win of its first Final Four since 2006 and will play top-seeded Stanford or No. 5 seed South Carolina on Monday night. Selby had five points and two assists in the opening 4:55 of the second half and knocked down a 3pointer that built Duke’s lead to 49-29. She also had four steals. Da’Shena Stevens scored 19 points in her final game for No. 3 seed St. John’s (24-10), which didn’t have another player with more than six points.

He enjoyed woodworking and spinning and weaving wool in his later years. Ralph hand-turned many spinning wheels and was active in the woodtur ners group. He was instrumental in starting Sheep to Shawl as a way to raise awareness of the properties of wool. He was happy keeping busy, whether it was helping someone, building houses or talking to the many visitors who stopped by the shop in Lincoln, which he enjoyed most of all. He won many distinguished awards but the most prized were all the friends he made through the years. The wealth of knowledge Ralph had at his fingertips will be sorely missed by his friends and those who want to know how things were done in Lincoln in the “old days.” A memorial service will be held March 25, 2012, at 2 p.m., at New Mexico Farm and Ranch Heritage Museum in Las Cruces, and April 21, 2012, at 2 p.m., at the Lincoln County Fair Building in Capitan.

Few Louisiana voters say Etch A Sketch flap important
Supporter of Rick Santorum displays an Etch A Sketch drawing instrument at a campaign event for Mitt Romney, in Metairie, La., Friday.
WASHINGTON (AP) — Few voters in Louisiana’s Republican presidential primary said they were influenced by a comment by a Mitt Romney aide likening his campaign’s tactics to an Etch A Sketch toy, even though it was one of the week’s big political stories. Early results of an exit poll of voters Saturday showed only about 1 in 5 saying the remarks played an important role in choosing a candidate.
Asked whether Romney’s positions in the GOP primary might make him too conservative for more moderate voters in November’s general election, Romney adviser Eric Fehrnstrom had said the campaign could start over in the fall. Romney’s opponents said the remark shows he shifts his views too easily. “Everything changes. It’s almost like an Etch A Sketch. You can kind of shake it up” and start all over again, Fehr nstrom

Republican leaders have started calling for Romney’s rivals to drop out and begin uniting the party for the fall campaign, only about 1 in 4 Louisiana voters said they want the GOP contest to end quickly, even if their contender loses. Seven in 10 said they were happy for the party’s internal battle to continue as long as their candidate wins. Just over half of Louisiana voters said the economy is the issue they most care about, a bit more than voters have typically
said in other states. Around 4 in 10 said the characteristic they most want in a candidate is one who can oust President Barack Obama in November. The survey was conducted for The Associated Press and the television networks by Edison Research as voters left their polling places at 30 randomly selected sites in Louisiana. The survey involved interviews with 951 voters and has a margin of sampling error of plus or minus 4 percentage points.

Mali state TV goes off air; fear of countercoup Roswell Daily Record
BAMAKO, Mali (AP) — Television screens throughout this landlocked country momentarily went black Friday, as residents near the building housing the state broadcaster saw troops erecting barricades, fearing a possible countercoup a day after a military takeover. On Thursday, mutinous troops seized control of the state television station, and announced they had overthrown the gover nment. The country’s democratically elected president has not been heard from since. The renegade troops pillaged the presidential palace and on Friday, they began stealing everything from people’s cars to the bananas sold by elderly women on street corners. The television signal went dead for around an hour late Friday afternoon, then flickered back on. Facing the camera were a group of a dozen soldiers, who read a prepared statement denying that the leader of their coup had been killed, or that the station had been
taken back by troops loyal to the country’s legitimate government. Hours later, coup leader Capt. Amadou Sanogo appeared on TV to say he was fine. He apologized for the looting, but deflected blame saying, “I have concrete proof that ill-intentioned people wore army and police unifor ms to break into some people’s places in order to turn the population against us ... I call on all Malians to stop the pillaging. That is neither our mission, nor our cause, nor our objective,” he said. The camera panned around the room to show the soldiers wearing different colored uniforms and berets. The coup leader pointed out that there were members of the police, the gendarmerie and the parachute regiment, a show of unity meant to dispel reports of a divide within the army. The scene outside the station suggested that all was not in order. Sporadic shots rang out and large
NEW DELHI (AP) — India’s inadequate government-run tuberculosis treatment programs and a lack of regulation of the sale of drugs that fight the disease are responsible for the spiraling number of drug-resistant cases that are difficult to treat, health activists said Friday. India adds an estimated 99,000 cases of drugresistant TB every year, but only a tiny fraction of those infected receive the proper drugs to treat the stubborn disease through the gov-
ernment-funded program. Saturday marks World Tuberculosis Day. The original form of the disease can be easily cured by taking antibiotics for six to nine months. But if that treatment is interrupted or the dose is cut, the bacteria battle back by mutating into a tougher strain that can no longer be killed by standard drugs, making it harder and more expensive to treat. The easy availability of TB drugs in the private market and the casual

numbers of soldiers were seen amassing outside. President Amadou Toumani Toure, who was overthrown in this week’s military takeover, is himself a seasoned soldier, who headed the country’s parachute commando unit. There has been speculation that loyalist troops, especially those at the 33rd Parachute Infantry Regi-
ment which Toure once belonged to will attempt to take back power. Contacted by telephone, resident Mohamed Traore said that after the signal went dead late Friday afternoon, he went outside and saw the troops rushing to put up large defenses. He lives 300 yards from the broadcaster and says that when he went to speak to
them, the soldiers told him that the red beret-wearing loyalists were planning an attack. Freelance reporter Katarina Hoije, who is staying in the Laico Hotel which faces the broadcaster, said that she heard shots and saw troops arriving in large numbers. Mali is considered one of the only functioning democracies in the region.
Although Toure initially took power in a 1991 coup, he became known as the “Soldier of Democracy” because he handed power to civilians, and retreated from public life. Years later he re-emerged to win the 2002 election and was reelected in 2007. He was due to step down next month at the end of his term. A dozen candidates were running in the April 29 vote, which is now in jeopardy. The fears of a possible countercoup come as rebels from the Tuareg ethnic group pushed toward three strategic northern Malian towns, including the famed ancient city of Timbuktu, taking advantage of the power vacuum caused by the coup. The second-in-command of the Tuareg rebels said his forces are advancing on the city of Kidal as dozens of gover nment soldiers desert in the wake of the military takeover in the faraway capital, located nearly 1,300 kilometers (some 800 miles) away.
over -the-counter sale of antibiotics is fueling the development of drug resistance, Piero Gandini, head of Doctors Without Borders in India, said in a statement. “There is an urgent need for regulatory control of sale and administration of TB drugs in the private sector,” he said. The organization and other health groups also said India’s TB control program provides treatment to patients only on alternate days. They argue it increas-
es the risk that patients, most of whom are poor daily wage laborers, will miss doses, another factor responsible for drug-resistant strains of TB. Patients also increasingly turn to private doctors who often do not understand how to properly treat TB or the risks of increasing drug resistance by prescribing the wrong drugs. The Indian government had no response Friday to requests for comment on the activists’ allegations. In January, Indian doc-
tors reported the country’s first cases that appeared to be “totally drug resistant,” a long-feared and virtually untreatable for m of the killer lung disease. The Indian hospital that saw the initial cases tested a dozen medicines and none of them worked. However, the Indian gover nment later questioned the findings, saying the World Health Organization has not defined the term “totally drug-resistant” tuberculosis. If a tuberculosis case is
found to be resistant to the two most powerful drugs, the patient is classified as having multi-drug-resistant TB. An even worse classification of TB — one the WHO accepts — is extensively drug-resistant TB, a for m of the disease that was first reported in 2006 and is virtually resistant to all drugs. An estimated 20 percent of the world’s multi-drugresistant cases are found in India, which is home to a quarter of all types of tuberculosis cases worldwide.

NY exhibit focuses on early career of Keith Haring
NEW YORK (AP) — The Bohemian atmosphere of downtown New York in the 1970s and 1980s had a huge impact on the art of Keith Haring, from his impromptu subway chalk drawings to his maze-like abstract paintings. In a new exhibition that focuses on the late artist’s early career, Haring’s creative energy is instantly felt through his seemingly pulsating kaleidoscope-like designs. “Keith Haring: 19781982” at the Brooklyn Museum includes 155 works on paper, 30 blackand-white subway drawings, seven experimental videos and rarely seen sketchbooks, journals, exhibition fliers and documentary photographs. It covers the years when the artist was 20 to 24 years old. Arranged chronologically, it traces the development of his abstract visual language, beginning with 25 red gouache works on paper where he experimented with individual geometric forms and a grouping of miniature abstract images reminiscent of the tapestrypatterns of Gustav Klimt. “One of the great things about this show is you see he’s interested in these essential abstract forms and then working them out on a bigger scale,” said project curator T ricia Laughlin Bloom. That process also is seen in his videos. In “Haring Paints himself into a Corner,” he literally does just that, while creating an abstract floor design to the music of Devo. Visitors also will learn that he dedicated an entire year —1979 — “to doing nothing but works based on language,” said Raphaela Platow, curator of the exhibition, which was shown last year at the Contemporary Arts Center in Cincinnati where Platow is director and chief curator. “The whole idea of linguistics played a major role in his work.” Haring died of AIDS in 1990 at age 31. While he’s often wrongly described as a graffiti artist, he defies categorization. “Very few people are aware that Keith Haring started out as an abstract artist, that he did all of these geometric abstractions ... and also considered video as a medium,” said Platow. And he was an artist who consistently worked in the public sphere, as with his subway drawings. There are 30 of these simple black-and-white line drawings in the exhibition — the most ever in a museum setting, according to Laughlin Bloom. Their signature iconography — repeated throughout Haring’s work — includes a flying saucer, crawling baby, dolphin, pyramid, television and nuclear reactor. Haring came to New York in 1978, before the AIDS crisis, from Kutztown, Pa., attending the School for Visual Arts for one year and immersing himself in lower Manhattan’s underground art and music scene and its gay subculture.
Haring said his goal was “to create art for everyone.” To that end, the subway drawings, quickly rendered before police could issue a summons, were never intended to be saved, said Laughlin Bloom. “They were statements about reclaiming the public space and reaching the public.” Among the highlights are an “everyman” figure in movement alongside an original subway ad for Penthouse magazine and another of a grinning face next to a Burt Reynolds movie poster that proclaims “He Wants You to Have His Baby.” Haring’s message, as in all his works, is openended, left to the interpretation of the viewer. Among his many intricate, psychedelic-like designs are two monumental pieces. One is 50-feet long — a mesmerizing black-andwhite all over geometric abstraction tightly integrated with his figurative imagery. The other is a vibrant 23foot vertical painting filled with free-form black-andwhite patterns overlaid with energetic sprays of red paint that transition into bold lines and text that reads: “Everyone Knows Where the Meat Comes From. It Comes From the Store.” Haring’s artistic output was prolific. Among his text-based works is a video of a close-up mouth articulating sounds. He was also interested in mechanical reproduction in which he typed groups of words over and over again in different arrangements. It was all about creating a rhythmic incantation and seeing “how many ways you can combine language to communicate differently,” said Laughlin Bloom. He also cut up and rearranged newspaper headlines to create new ones, like “Mob Flees At Pope Rally” and “Reagan: Ready To Kill.” He copied these and plastered them all over the city. “It was designed to ... show up in the city as part of the overall canvas and to make a point,” Laughlin Bloom said. “People would see them and go, “’Is that a real headline?’” His scrapbooks and handwritten journals reveal what he was reading, doing and thinking. In one entry, Haring expresses concern about computers. “Our existence, our individuality, our creativity, our lives are threatened by this coming machine aesthetic,” he writes. Haring took inspiration from artists Willem de Kooning and Jackson Pollock but also from graffiti artists Kenny Scharf, LA II (Angel Ortiz) and JeanMichel Basquiat. The one Haring-Basquiat collaboration in the show is crudely executed on a discarded piece of plywood, probably from a construction site. The exhibition also explores another little known aspect about Haring, as a curator and facilitator of other artists’ work. He designed hundreds of

Anti-bullying hotline 627-7233
MARTHA D. URQUIDES-STAAB VISTAS EDITOR Bullying is nothing new. At some point in one’s life, a distant memory of an unpleasant time growing up may come up, or even in a present-day situation. The truth is bullying is not new but is growing more aggressively in today’s day and age. Technology is a great asset to society; to a bully, it’s just another tool to torment someone else. Cyber-bullying is becoming viral with social networks like Facebook, MySpace and YouTube. The younger generation is turning to vlogs, video blogs, to talk to their friends about situations they are facing. Recently a video went viral where a boy was talking about the bullying in his school. The boy committed suicide shortly after. The news went national. Even Lady Gaga dedicated a song to him at a concert after hearing the news. Celebrities and national organizations are striving to spread the word that bullying is dangerous and needs to stop. Bobby Villegas, director of Soy Mariachi, came up with the idea of having a hotline where kids could call and discuss their bullying issues with a counselor. The idea took a while to bring to life, but Villegas spread the word and several people in the community were willing to help. “The original idea was for kids to call a hotline to talk about bullying, but there wasn’t one. I called the telephone company and got the number 627-SAFE, 6277233, where kids could call anonymously,” said Villegas. Villegas contacted Ann Anderson of Counseling Associates to set up councilors who could answer the phone and help the callers. Villegas also got support from several Roswell Independent School District councilors, teachers and administration. The way the hotline works is a caller can call 627-7233 which is open 24 hours a day seven days a week. The caller talks to a councilor and discusses the situation they are dealing with. If the caller is a student and wishes to disclose where the bullying is occurring, the councilor then forwards the information to RISD administra-
tion. RISD then takes over the situation. This hotline came at a good time, Gov. Martinez signed House Bill 78 which mandates all schools come up a bullying program in the public school before the start of the new year. The RISD worked hard all summer and came up with a bullying curriculum all students now participate in at school. Pat Lujan, director of instruction for RISD, oversees all the bullying curriculum and policies. “It is my responsibility to make sure the curriculum is being carrying out,” said Lujan. Before House Bill 78 passed, the school district had School Policy 5130 which stated that bullying or any types of behaviors would not be tolerated. The bullying curriculum reinforces that message every week. There is the Eliminating Bullying program for pre-kindergarten through third grade, Stop Bullying Now for fourth and
fifth, Bullying Character Education for middle school students and a curriculum for high school students in their freshman health classes. The programs run for 36 weeks including the first week of school to the end of the school year. Lujan reinforces the notion that bullying is being dealt with in the schools. If parents know their child is being bullied there is a form on the RISD website under the parents link. It can be filled out and can be emailed, faxed or hand carried to the principal. From there, the principal can resolve the problem. For ms can also be found in the main offices of each school. “We want the students and parents to know we are serious about bullying in our district. Students need to come to school and feel safe. I also want to
thank Mr. Villegas and volunteers who felt this is necessary for the community,” said Lujan. Brandy Dolen, published author and former RISD student knows all too well the pain bullying can cause and is happy to see something is starting to be done about bullying. “I think it’s incredible. Had there been something like this hotline when I was in school, I may not have gone through what I did,” said Dolen. Dolen believes this hotline is something that will be used by those who are struggling and are seeking help from the pain bullying causes. Dolen dropped out of school due to bullying. Since her book on bullying was published, she has been asked by several local organizations to speak about her experiences. Now 17, her future is set on helping others in those situations. She plans on going to college and studying psychology and possibly becoming a councilor for the RISD. “Bullying is becoming an epidemic. The more people we make aware of how lifechanging and destructive it can be, the more apt we are to stopping it from happening.” Villegas is optimistic for the hotline’s future and a safer future for anyone who may be bullied. “I’ve been involved with kids for so long. I have seen our society change so much to kids that I felt there was a need for these kids to have this line. It helps talking to someone who can help solve their problem,” said Villegas. For help regarding bullying call the antibullying hotline at 627-7233. firstname.lastname@example.org

Stay-at-home mom trying to control anger toward kids Q: I’m a stay-at-home mom with four children under the age of seven. I love my kids and would do anything for them. But sometimes, I just lose it. I can’t handle all of the noise and the constant demands. I feel so guilty for losing my temper!
Juli: You just exposed the greatest secret of most young moms: They get overwhelmed, they yell and then they feel guilty. Please know that you are not alone.
Being home all day with little ones is a demanding and thankless job. Even the most devoted mom can slip into anger and depression as the laundry piles up, the kids are vomiting and the cries for “Mommy!” fill the house. The stress of motherhood becomes more pronounced if you’re isolated.
To do any worthwhile job well, including motherhood, you need regular breaks and things in your life that replenish you. This means you need to make time for outlets that reduce stress like exercise, friendship, hobbies and romance with your husband. A great first step is to join a local MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) group just to have time with other moms who can completely relate to your life. They even offer childcare during the meetings!

In many cases they’ve already purchased the rings, reserved the church, sent out invitations and hired a photographer. There’s also the social stigma of breaking of f an engagement. For all these reasons, engaged couples have a vested interest in ignoring one another’s flaws and overlooking potential rough spots in their relationship. They’re already committed to moving forward. In many cases this can lead to problems later.
Blow! Real Help for Moms Dealing With Anger.” You’ll find practical suggestions from a mom who has walked in your shoes. I respect your commitment to be home with your children and your desire to be a great mom. Don’t lose sight of all of the wonderful ways you’re investing in your kids. Q: My boyfriend and I have been dating for a few months, and lately he’s mentioned the word “marriage.” I don’t have reservations, but I’m still nervous. He could pop the question any day now, and I know my answer will impact the
rest of our lives. Jim: This critical time, when it appears a proposal is imminent, is the perfect opportunity to explore preengagement counseling. While many couples seek out a counselor once they’re already engaged and making wedding plans, we believe there are many reasons to start that process before the engagement is official. My wife, Jean, and I did this, and it was an important step for us. Consider this: Engaged couples are far less inclined to take an in-depth, honest look at their relationship.
Therefore, we’d recommend that you and your boyfriend find a good marriage-and-family therapist and set up a series of sessions now. The process should include a personality test such as the PREPARE/ENRICH Premarital Inventory. Contact Focus on the Family (focusonthe-
But Koda says he sees a sociological link between then and now when it comes to people testing boundaries. “There was a generational change happening. It was about losing the Edwardian restrictions then, but there was a sense of social opportunity that’s in the air now.”
He also can draw some parallels in fashion trends. Rich, luxurious textiles were so important — as they are now — and the favorite silhouette was long and languid, just like you’ll see on the current catwalks. “It’s a drift of cloth over a really elegant body,” Koda describes. “It’s decorated with embroideries and fringe, or any kind of ornament. The woman is wearing a sensual expression of textile and technique rather than highlighting the fine points of her body. The look suggests animation ... but it’s a straight-up and straight-down line in supple fabrics, satin, georgette or chiffon. It’s not an ostentatious sexiness, but you could see it might appeal to women who are being attentive to their fitness. It’s an elegant way to show off what you’ve been doing on the Pilates machine.” Designer Tory Burch’s new collection is full of the chemise dresses, sleeveless tops and tiered skirts that were groundbreaking in the 1920s. She took her inspiration from the then-popular seaside French resort of Deauville. Other designers, including Marc Jacobs and Ralph Lauren, tapped into the menswear -inspired styles and cloche hats, too. There were some handkerchief hemlines as well, which is
how Coco Chanel, Jean Patou and Jeanne Lanvin first began to adjust the collective eye toward a shorter, less matronly skirt during the youth of today’s great-grandmothers. “I love the effortlessness of the era. It was the dawn of moder n sportswear,” says Burch. Even then, there was an eye-catching mixing and matching of menswear-inspired jackets and trousers with very feminine dresses in pretty makeup colors and delicate prints — a look that’s equally relevant now, she observes. Burch’s advice on how to wear a ‘20s-inspired style without appearing costume-y is to push those unexpected combinations: T ry a silk dress with a leather jacket or a printed dress that’s dotted with sequins. That should be just enough to push you out of your comfort zone and into the trend, she says. It has to all come off effortlessly, though, never looking like you are trying too hard, she adds. If in doubt, start with the long necklace. “What felt new about the way designers approached the era of the 1920s was how they reinterpreted it,” says Vogue’s Melling Burke. “It didn’t become a head-totoe statement. The statement was really about a dress — a ‘20s dress, a
chemise, an easy dropwaist, a slip dress — but the accessories and makeup were modern.” She notes all the “downtown-girl, matted and undone hair” that was on the spring runways with the models wearing severe, heavy eyeliner. “It threw things into a modern context. It wasn’t a lot of headbands.” The good news for shoppers is that many of the clothes work for an everyday, daytime wardrobe, but all with a touch of glamour. “I think it’s totally sexy,” Melling Burke says. “It’s not where we’ve been for a while with this looser shape. It’s less body conscious.” She says she’d like to see eveningwear and the red carpet move this way as well. A strong, young woman — a Michelle Williams or Kate Bosworth type, she says — could make a memorable fashion statement by wearing what is not expected, which is typically a skintight, curvehugging sheath gown. Fringe would be fun, Melling Burke adds, but that needs to be saved for a special occasion that requires dressing up. It’s not too grown-up for prom, though, she says: hint, hint, hint for teen girls. With a new movie version of “The Great Gatsby” coming later this year with
other projects. 4. Felt and craft foam. Both add durability and texture to artwork. They’re also more budget-friendly than many fabrics, and felt won’t fray. Craft foam can be bought in pre-cut shapes, from trucks to dolls to holiday decorations. 5. Markers and crayons. Washable is the word for many households when it comes to markers. Besides traditional markers, there are ones you can use on windows or dry erase boards. Crayons are one of the least expensive craft items you can buy. If your child uses crayons to color a picture on an old shirt, pillowcase or other cotton fabric, you can iron it for a lasting piece of art. 6. Paints and brushes. Young children should use non-toxic paints, and most parents prefer washable. Finger paints are perfect for even the tiniest tots. As kids enter preschool they’ll move on to tempura paint and large brushes. Then it’s smaller brushes and watercolors for grade schoolers, and acrylic craft paints for older kids. Check the packaging for an Approved Product (AP) seal, which means it’s certified as non-toxic by the Art & Creative Materials Institute Inc. 7. Popsicle sticks or pipe
cleaners. Pipe cleaners are a color ful way to bind together other materials. Young children can create a caterpillar with an empty toilet tissue roll and pipecleaner antennae and appendages. Popsicle sticks give artwork structure and are super cheap. You can paint them, color them or glue on embellishments. 8. Yar n. Another item that comes in just about any color. Create yar n pompoms and add felt eyes, ears, feet and hands to make soft monsters, bugs or animal friends. Make a picture frame with popsicle sticks tightly wrapped in colorful yarn. Embellish for a keepsake. 9. Masking tape. Relatively easy for tiny fingers to manipulate, and can hold together sculptures made from household goods. Tur n a piece of newspaper into an Easter egg by crumpling it and covering it with tape to hold its shape. Paint any way you choose. Tip: Use blue painter’s masking tape to keep drawing paper from moving around on the table. The painter’s tape comes off without tearing your kiddo’s masterpiece. 10. Embellishments. Once you’ve got the other essentials, add some extras to jazz up craft time. Kid favorites include pompoms, feathers, plastic gemstones,
stamps, stickers and glitter. Dollar bins are a great place to find them. Look for paper punches that make shaped holes such as cupcakes and snowflakes. Or you might find color ful beads or sequins for under a buck. Don’t forget the artistic potential in household items such as cotton balls, straws, empty soup cans and detergent jugs, and yard debris. “Kids are great at turning recycled materials and found objects into art,” says Emily Weerts, technology education coordinator for the Austin Children’s Museum. One of her suggestions: Use scissors and masking tape to turn an old paper towel roll into a periscope. Another important tool for crafty parents is the Internet; families can find inspiration at sites such as P i n t e r e s t . c o m , Michaels.com/theknack, and at children’s library and museum sites. Building a family arts and crafts supply with the items above can cost less than $50, depending on how wild you get with the embellishments. The best time to stock up is during back-to-school sales and at major holidays — think Easter baskets and Christmas stocking stuffers. Many suppliers
offer online deals. “It’s just so important to get kids to use their imagination,” says Paula Puleo, chief marketing officer for Michaels Stores, a nationwide arts and crafts retailer. Once you’ve got your arts and crafts essentials, where can you store them? Puleo suggests something as sim-

Fashion influences from Jazz Age making noise this spring
NEW YORK (AP) — Fashion influences from the Jazz Age are making some noise this spring. Droppedwaist dresses, sporty knits, fringe and long necklaces are among the trends born from the groundbreaking, looser look that first emerged in the 1920s. They’re a blend of an unfussy attitude while maintaining a polished appearance. Everything old always seems to become new again in the seasonal style cycles, and the time seems right to revisit this era as people are once again looking to have a little fun and are easing the tight grip on their wallets. “There’s a little optimism that comes with the ‘20s,” says Meredith Melling Burke, Vogue’s senior market director. “You have the color, the 3-D embellishment. It all feels upbeat, and it all plays into a more carefree attitude.” The exuberance of the time — and especially in the clothes wor n for nightlife and dancing — is appealing, but you also run the risk of an over-the-top look that cannot be sustained for a long time, says Harold Koda, curator in charge of The Costume Institute at The Metropolitan Museum of Art. That’s what happened after the stock market crash in 1929 when anything flashy sud-

denly looked so wrong, he explains.
The clothes and attitude of 2012 are a smarter version of what was offered in the flapper days; it’s all being done in a more approachable, thoughtful way, Koda says.
Leonardo DiCaprio and Carey Mulligan as its stars, there will be a lot of exposure of these styles to a very broad audience, so expect the trend to last awhile. Lauren’s spring collection specifically cited “Gatsby” as a starting point, and Burch had recently seen the off-Broadway show “Gatz” when she was designing hers.
“People look at that time and they want to be there. There was joy and effortless glamour and that’s the excitement,” says Burch.

Ten essenital arts and crafts items for a kids craft cupboard BY AMY LORENTZEN FOR THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
Here are 10 essential arts and crafts items that are easy on the budget and simple to use: 1. Age-appropriate scissors. Even children as young as 3 can begin using safety scissors with supervision. Pay attention to age recommendations on packaging. Let tiny tots cut pictures out of old magazines to make a collage. Older kids can snip favorite shapes for all sorts of projects including paper dolls. 2. White craft glue or glue sticks. Little hands can manipulate glue sticks more easily than liquid glue, and parents can better control how much is used. Kids who can handle squeeze bottles may also enjoy colored or glittered glues. Consider putting a dollop of glue in a plastic container and give your child a Q-tip to apply it with less mess. 3. Construction paper. It’s not just solid colors anymore. There are printed patter ns and glittered pages, and fade-resistant papers that will keep projects looking cheery longer. Let young children paste strips of paper onto another piece for a simple project. Older children can practice origami, among
ple as a cardboard box, plastic bin or toolkit. Just label it so you remember what it is. Plastic baggies and shoeboxes work well as dividers to cut down on mess and keep track of inventory. And your kids can help decorate the container as part of a family project.
A castle made of Styrofoam-brand foam, construction paper and pom-poms is shown. As spring break nears and the days get longer, many parents are searching for meaningful ways to keep their children occupied.
Banning illegal immigrant renters pricey, divisive Roswell Daily Record
FARMERS BRANCH, Texas (AP) — A Dallas suburb has spent five years and nearly $5 million trying to ban illegal immigrants from renting apartments within city limits, but court challenges have kept the law from taking effect. Still, city officials say they're likely to press on. The fight has pushed Farmers Branch, a quiet collection of bedroom communities and office parks, into the national debate about illegal immigration. Local Latinos say it also has made U.S. citizens and legal immigrants feel unwelcome in the city, where the Latino population has fallen in recent years. City officials and law backers argue that illegal immigrants strain local schools and police resources. They also note that local voters supported an early version of the law five years ago by a 2-to-1 margin. "We're trying to solve a problem that people perceive to have," Mayor Jack Glancy told The Associated Press. "If the (federal) government would do what it's supposed to do, we wouldn't be in the middle of this thing." The city council must now decide whether to appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court or push for a hearing before the full 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, where a three-judge panel last week upheld a lower court's ruling blocking the law. Farmers Branch's city council, which has never included a Latino, has in
recent years declared English to be the city's official language and resisted efforts to shift voting from an at-large system, which Latinos complain dilutes their voice. The council first passed a renters' ban in 2006, but replaced it two years later on the advice of its attorneys. The new law would require all renters to obtain a city license and the city's building inspector to check the status of any applicant who wasn't a U.S. citizen. Illegal immigrants would be denied a renters' permit, and landlords who knowingly allowed them to stay could have their renters' license barred. A federal judge put that law on hold after landlords and renters sued the city, and courts have continued to block it — most recently on Wednesday by the 5th Circuit. Similar bans pushed in other cities, most notably Fremont, Neb., and Hazleton, Pa., are in the middle of similar court fights. A judge recently allowed Fremont to require renters to obtain a permit but stopped the city from revoking the permits if renters were found to be illegal immigrants. Hazleton's law, which would sanction business owners for employing illegal immigrants and property owners for renting to them, also is on hold. But backers will get a new hearing because the Supreme Court last year, citing its decision in another case, vacated a federal appeals court's ruling against the law.

In this Aug. 26, 2006 file photo, Jerod Jaramillo, 12, right, and Jose Villaneda carry signs and march during an immigration law protest in front of city hall in Farmers Branch, Texas. The 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled Wednesday that the ordinance passed by Farmers Branch in 2008 overstepped the town's authority, upholding a lower court ruling stopping a ban on illegal immigrants seeking housing. The law called on the city's building inspector to check the immigration status of anyone wanting to rent an apartment who wasn't a U.S.
Kris Kobach, a national advocate for tougher immigration laws and Kansas' secretary of state, has represented Farmers Branch in court and said the city would have a good chance if it continues its case. He noted that much of the legal work has been done, so costs shouldn't grow much. Latino civil rights group MALDEF, which is helping fight the Farmers Branch

law, said backers of such laws should give up. "The federal courts have made clear that cities cannot make their own immigration laws and target residents for expulsion simply because of their race or nationality," Nina Perales, MALDEF's vice president of litigation, said in a statement. Despite rallies and heated protests at the time, Ben Robinson, a Farmers Branch councilman, points to the 2007 referendum that showed strong support for the law. "As far as I know, they still feel that way," he said. Glancy emphasized that the city is targeting illegal immigrants, not legal immigrants or U.S. citizens, noting that the city's library hosts English classes. Thursday's class drew 50 people from all over the world — Cambodia, Germany and several Latin American countries — who sounded out nouns and verbs with the help of local volunteers. The mayor also said that since the law was first passed, the number of car accidents involving uninsured drivers has declined and fewer students have moved in and out of local schools.
Statistics from the Carrollton-Farmers Branch school district, which includes parts of Farmers Branch and surrounding cities, show the percentage of "mobile" students has fallen, though district spokeswoman Angela Shelley said the school does not keep track of students' immigration status. A message seeking comment from local police about Glancy's uninsured drivers claim wasn't returned. "Something needed to be done," Glancy said. "The federal government wasn't doing it. People were frustrated, and we're the ones closest to the people." Elizabeth Villafranca sees things differently. Villafranca owns a local Mexican restaurant and moved to Farmers Branch after the push to ban illegal immigrant residents began. She ran and lost for city council. Villafranca said she and other U.S.-born Latinos, along with legal immigrants, are more often pulled over by police or threatened by other residents. Though the law never went into effect, Villafranca said, supporters "had the effect they wanted." Longtime resident Jack Viveros, a financial planner,
said friends and neighbors started asking questions about his background in recent years. "It's still a dividing factor," Viveros said. "It has divided the city dramatically." The city has an annual budget of $77 million and has to cut salaries and benefits in recent years, making the $4.5 million spent on immigration-related lawsuits stand out. Robinson, the longtime councilman, called the legal fees "outrageous" but said he supported continuing the case. "I think the only way that we're ever going to have a proper handle on, and control over, illegal immigration in this country is by the states and the cities having the types of laws ... necessary to control illegal immigration," he said. Viveros said he wanted the case to end so the city could heal. "When we drop this thing, when it's finally done and over with, it's like a relationship with a person," Viveros said. "When you first break up, you're hateful and angry and all that kind of stuff. After time, things just become acceptable and things go back to normal."
Oklahoma tribe asks judge to dismiss suit over casino TULSA, Okla. (AP) — The Kialegee Tribal Town asked a federal judge on Friday to dismiss the state of Oklahoma's lawsuit in opposition to the building of a casino in Broken Arrow. The tribe claims that the state is seeking a ruling "that would reverse decades of established federal law and judicial precedent." Oklahoma Attor ney General Scott Pruitt filed the lawsuit Feb. 8 in U.S. District Court in Tulsa in an attempt to stop the opening of a casino at the southwest cor ner of Olive Avenue (129th East Avenue) and Florence Street (111th Street). In their motion to dismiss the case, the Kialegees say they should be exempt from the lawsuit based on federal law that has long recognized Indian tribes "as possess-
ing the common-law immunity from suit traditionally enjoyed by sovereign powers." Defense attorneys Joseph Farris, Paula Quillin and Dennis Whittlesey say the state's argument that the tribe has waived its sovereign immunity through a clause in a tribal corporation charter is not supported by legal precedent and is irresponsible. "This court's acceptance of it could undermine the sovereign immunity of the hundreds of Indian tribes in this country conducting business through tribal corporations — including many, if not all, of Oklahoma's recognized tribes," the defense claims. The Kialegees also argue that the state cannot litigate any claims brought under the relevant compact until and unless it
has complied with specific dispute resolution provisions, which include a formal arbitration process. "The state now proposes to ignore the dispute resolution requirements it wrote," the attorneys argue. "In effect, the state believes that the compact is irrelevant when its requirements are inconvenient." The defense claims that "nothing in any of the state's numerous filings in this litigation cited a single federal or state law giving it a legal basis for enjoining construction. Moreover, counsel for defendants are not aware of any such law." U.S. Chief District Judge Gregory Frizzell has scheduled a preliminary injunction hearing to begin May 2. Defense attor neys also filed their response to the state's injunction request Friday.
They argued, "The state is seeking a preliminary injunction to block construction activity that does not violate a single state or federal law" and which "is not even mentioned in the compact which exclusively regulates gaming." Also, defense attorneys maintain that the state has not articulated "any irreparable harm or injury to its interest that would occur if construction goes forward." The defense added, "the state argues that the National Indian Gaming Commission has not approved construction or operation of a casino on the property, but does not cite a single law or regulation requiring such approval from any federal entity, let alone the NIGC." Frizzell gave the state until April 10 to respond.
‘Delinquent’ notices Mall of America planning $200 million expansion decried by some residents BLOOMINGTON, Minn. (AP) — would have doubled the size of the ed, Hagen said.
GREAT FALLS, Mont. (AP) — Cascade County will stop sending out overdue property tax notices in envelopes stamped with the word "delinquent" in red letters after some residents complained, the county treasurer said. Jamie Bailey tells the Great Falls Tribune (http://bit.ly/GMzkqF) that county employees mailed the statements seeking $1.7 million in unpaid taxes on Feb. 29 and March 1. Bailey said an outside company in past years mailed the notices contained in envelopes printed with "important information inside." One resident who received a delinquent-stamped notice complained the letter violates the federal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act that prohibits "contact by embarrassing media." The county's chief civil attorney said no law was broken. But Bailey said the county has decided not to put the word "delinquent" on future notices. "I knew they were not happy about that," Bailey said. "People need to know it isn't going to show up on anything else. We'll do them in house, but we're going to do them different next time. And the 'delinquent' stamp is not going to show up the next time around. That was just an error on our part."
The Mall of America is advancing plans for a $200 million expansion that could add a second hotel, more space and a medical office tower. It's a small step in the Bloomington megamall's long-planned, oftendelayed expansion, according to a St. Paul Pioneer Press report (http://bit.ly/GMJ33F ) on Saturday. "It's the next piece that we're trying to assemble and get financed and move forward with," said Kurt Hagen, senior vice president of development for mall owner Triple Five Group. If plans develop according to schedule, expansion could start next spring, he said. Six years ago, officials unveiled an ambitious expansion plan that
megamall, but that plan stalled. The new strategy is more measured steps. Rochester's Mayo Clinic has expressed interest in joining the latest project, which could include 150,000 square feet of medical space. Hagen said both parties are "still exploring" what Mayo's presence would be, including an option for a medical office tower. "The building itself could be more than Mayo Clinic," Hagen said. "Mayo is focused on a wellness facility here. They're not focusing on a hospital." A Radisson Blu hotel is already under construction on the south side of the complex. Expansion plans also call for another hotel, although its size hasn't been decid-
"Depending on the type and the brand of hotel we choose, that will help us determine the right room count," Hagen said. The plan also calls for three levels of additional retail space, as much 200,000 square feet added to the 4.2 million square feet of space the megamall already boasts. "We'd like to take it higher -end retail," Hagen said. "All these pieces kind of tie together — the flag and brand of the hotel, the services that Mayo is offering and the type of retail this wing will cater to." The project could be 13 to 15 stories high, Hagen said, most likely with retail on the lower floors and medical and hotel rooms higher up.

tion. He said that children through the age of 12 should always ride in the back seat. He also reminded me that seat belts were designed for adults, not children. According to the NHTSA, the 7year-old should be in a “booster” seat. A booster seat positions the seat belt so it fits properly over the shoulder and chest — the strongest parts of the child’s body — so it won’t cut him or her on the neck or face in case of an accident. The NHTSA used to recommend that children 8 to 12 years old or 4 feet 9 inches and under use a booster seat. However, it NOW recommends that parents visit its website, www.nhtsa.gov, to choose a correct seat. Click on the child safety section, and you’ll find an area titled “Which Car Seat Is the Right One for Your Child.” There are also videos in this section showing parents how to install the seats correctly. The recommendations are national and do not vary among the states. And yes — this information should be shared with the

Debbie, I am happy to help! If you are using a cleaner or wax on your floor, that is probably what is leaving the sticky residue. Use a dust mop or electric sweeper to remove dirt and grit frequently. Then using a damp mop every so often should be all you need. Be careful about the amount of water you use. Too much can warp the laminate. Use a clean, dry cloth to go over the floor after you mop to remove any excess water. Never use wax, polish or anything that can scratch the floor, like a scouring pad. Check with your manufacturer for what it recommends. Some market-specific cleaners for laminate floors clean without leaving a film. Heloise P.S.: Some manufacturers say to use vinegar and water, and others say not to, so you should check so that you don’t void the warranty. #####

Titanic bandleader’s letter among NH auction items Roswell Daily Record
CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — An auction house is commemorating the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic by offering more than 180 pieces of memorabilia from the maritime tragedy, including a letter from the bandleader who chose to play on as the ship sank. Wallace Hartley wrote home to his parents in England that the Titanic was a fine ship and that his band mates seemed very nice. He also wrote on the T itanic’s letterhead stationery that he expected to be home soon. The letter was mailed during one of two stops the T itanic made before it struck an iceberg 350 miles south of Newfoundland and sank April 15, 1912, leaving 1,517 dead. Survivors remember the band playing in the first-class lounge as passengers assembled there after the T itanic crashed into the iceberg and later on deck, as passengers boarded the lifeboats.
Sunday, March 25, 2012
This Oct. 19, 2011, file photo provided by RMS Titanic, Inc., shows a bracelet from the RMS Titanic which was recovered from the ocean floor during an expedition to the site of the tragedy. Witnesses in lifeboats reported seeing Hartley and his fellow musicians swept into the ocean. Hartley, who was 36, wrote in part: “Just a line to say we have got away all right. It’s been a bit of a rush but I am just getting a
little settled. This is a fine ship & there ought to be plenty of money on her ... We have a fine band & the boys seem very nice.” He closed by saying, “I shall probably arrive home on the Sunday morning,” and signed his letter, “With
love to all, Wallace.” “I see documents and handwritten letters every day and that one just blows me away,” said Bobby Livingston, vice president of Amherst-based RRAuction. “It’s amazing to have the last letter home from the
guy in the band that played on.” Livingston said he expects the Hartley letter to be the highlight of the online action. Bidding opens April 19 and closes April 26. Also being auctioned is a pay slip issued to “ablebodied seaman” Frank Oliver Evans — a crew member who survived after helping load passengers into lifeboats. He was one of only 18 crew members who participated in the lifeboat drill on April 10, 1912 — the day the Titantic departed Southampton, England, bound for New York City. Evans was paid for the six days he actually worked aboard the Titanic, but he also was given 26 days’ bonus pay, presumably to compensate him for how long it took him to get back to England. Livingston said Evans testified about the tragedy before a U.S. Senate investigative committee a week after the Titanic sank.
“He actually witnessed the Titanic break in two,” Livingstone said. The auction house posted its auction preview online Friday. Included is a discharge paper signed by Titanic’s commanding officer — Capt. Edward J. Smith — and issued 16 years before the T itanic sank. Smith at the time was commander of the S.S. Majestic, aboard which the discharged seaman had served. Smith went down with the Titanic. “We’ve been focusing on the 100th anniversary Titanic auction for the last nine months,” Livingston said. “We were able to put together an incredible selection of stuff from 30 individual collectors all over the world.” “Titanic items are scarce and the tragedy still resonates, so there’s a lot of interest,” he said.
Pittsburgh distillery set to host whiskey tastings Black PITTSBURGH (AP) — You’ve probably heard of wine tastings. Now, whiskey tastings are legal in Pennsylvania too. A new state law allows small distilleries to give samples to visitors and sell bottles of their spirits directly to the public. That’s big news for Wigle Whiskey in Pittsburgh, which opened to the public on Friday. The distillery is named after Philip Wigle, who burned down the home of a federal tax collector in the 1790s and helped lead the Whiskey Rebellion, a major test of George Washington’s presidency. The rebels objected to one of the first federal AP Photo taxes — on distilled spirits.

You taste the rye, which has a spicier taste.” The organic grain is milled into a fine powder, mixed with water, and stirred to get an oatmeallike substance. “Whiskey is just distilled beer. A lot of people don’t realize that,” Meyer said. The company also is making a wheat whiskey, which is smoother and creamier, and a whiskey that will be aged in oak barrels. Meyer said the familiar brown whiskey color actually comes from the wood, not the brewing process. “Really what you’re tasting is the wood,” he said. So far the family is encouraged by the buzz around their distillery, which is the first to operate in Pittsburgh since Prohibition. They also hope to open a small museum featuring the Whiskey Rebellion, which was considered an event of national significance at the time. Rich Lancia was so enthusiastic about the new distillery that he volunteered to help put labels on bottles. “Everyone talks about doing it. They’re actually doing it. To take that first step, that’s what it’s all about,” Lancia said. Wigle also offers tours of the distillery and bookings for special events.
Americans have pumped less gas every week for the past year. During those 52 weeks, gasoline consumption dropped by 4.2 billion gallons, or 3 percent, according to MasterCard SpendingPulse. The decline is the longest since a 51week period during the recession. The main reason: higher gas prices. The national average for a gallon of gas is $3.89, the highest ever for this time of year, and experts say it could be $4.25 by late April. As a result, Americans are taking fewer trips to restaurants and shopping malls. When they take a vacation, they’re staying closer to home. But the decline in gas consumption is also a sign that efforts to push car makers to produce vehicles with better gas mileage are paying off. The average new car now gets nearly 24 miles to the gallon, compared with about 20 mpg just four years ago, according to the University of Michigan Transportation Research Insti-
Gasoline prices rose by 24 percent in the last 52 weeks, according to auto club AAA, Wright Express and Oil Price Information Service. MasterCard, which collects purchase receipts from more than 100,000 service stations around the country, said spending on gas rose by 20 percent during the period. In 2011, Americans spent 8.4 percent of their household income on gasoline, or about $4,155, compared with 6.7 percent in 2010, according to experts at OPIS. Behind all this is the high price of oil. Brent crude, which is used to price most of the oil used to make gasoline at many U.S. coastal refineries, has jumped by 16 percent this year to more than $124 per barrel. Benchmark U.S. crude has risen 9 percent this year to more than $107 per barrel.
Stuck with high gas prices, drivers strive to pump less tute. “I’d expect to see lower gasoline consumption for several years to come,” Rice University energy expert Ken Medlock says. Americans have cut back on fill-ups for extended periods before. In 2008, gas spiked from $3.04 to $4.11 per gallon in seven months. It wasn’t until January 2009, when the national average for gas had dropped to $1.86 that consumption increased. Drivers bought more gasoline for 23 weeks in a row. “The spike in 2008 was a real shock to the system,” Medlock says. “There’s still a residual impact on people’s driving behavior.” There were other stretches of reduced gas use, notably two into the 1970’s and one in the early 1980’s. But in those cases, Americans eventually went back to driving big cars and trucks that guzzled gas. This time may be different. Medlock thinks economic growth will be too modest and gas prices will
stay too high for Americans to start driving more anytime soon. Economists expect the U.S. economy to grow 2.5 percent in 2012. The gover nment estimates that gas will average a record $3.79 per gallon for the year. John Gamel, who oversees MasterCard SpendingPulse’s weekly consumption report, points to rising sales of fuel-efficient vehicles. “People have gotten used to elevated prices and they’ve made their long-ter m purchases,” Gamel says. “They’re going to be using less fuel.” Consumers now care more if a car gets good gas mileage than if it’s reliable, stylish or comes with a great deal, according to a survey of more than 24,000 new-vehicle owners taken last summer and fall by J.D. Power and Associates. That wasn’t the case in the nine previous years that J.D. Power conducted the survey. Automakers have listened to consumers, and responded to stricter gover nment fuel economy
requirements. They’ve improved engines and transmissions so cars bur n less fuel. They’ve also made cars more aerodynamic, boosting mileage by cutting wind drag. The government is gradually increasing gas mileage requirements so that by 2025, cars and trucks will have to average 54.5 mpg. Between February 2011 and February 2012, the combined city-highway mileage of a new vehicle sold in the U.S rose to 23.7 mpg from 22.7. Better gas mileage has a huge impact on the overall economy. At $3.86 per gallon, U.S. drivers would save $35.8 billion per year with a 1 mpg improvement for the entire fleet of cars, trucks and buses, according to Michael Sivak, a research professor with the University of Michigan Transportation Research Institute. Consumers would appreciate the help. The rise in gas prices has been so steep that they’re still spending more on gas than a year ago despite using less.
Panther home up for sale
OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — The Black Panther party preached “power to the people,” but in the San Francisco Bay area’s thriving real estate market, the power is in the property. Realtors expected to close a deal Friday on the Oakland home where the militant black power group was founded in 1966. Panther co-founder Bobby Seale’s family sold the house in October for $200,000 to real estate investors who renovated the home with chic maple and quartz upgrades. After the improvements, the home was put on the market for $400,000 — almost 40 times what Seale’s parents paid for it in 1960. Seale said he and Huey Newton drafted the party’s manifesto in the dining room. “We would come in from patrol at night, unload our weapons at my house, and lay them all out across the long dining room table,” Seale wrote in his 1978 autobiography. The surrounding streets that armed party members once patrolled in the name of black empowerment are quickly gentrifying, with longtime residents like Seale departing for less expensive suburbs. Seale, now 75, has worked as a draftsman and a carpenter. He made improvements on the house and wanted to do more, but his sister persuaded him to sell. The house’s dramatically increased selling price was part of “the same crap that got this financial debacle started in the first place,” he said. But Seale didn’t hold the cutthroat realities of buying and selling homes in the Bay Area against the new residents. “People move. Humans move. Power to the people, whether they’re black, white, blue, whatever,” he said.

Harlem’s Red Rooster: A rare diversity in dining
NEW YORK (AP) — It’s a balmy March evening just before the official arrival of spring, and a few diners are already happily venturing to the small tables outside Red Rooster, chef Marcus Samuelsson’s eatery on Lenox Avenue in the heart of Harlem. But outside isn’t really the place to be. No, to feel the buzz that is Red Rooster, one should really be perched on a stool at the horseshoe-shaped bar inside. It’s elegant, made of different hues of wood, but more importantly, it’s occupied by different hues — and ages, and types — of people. On this evening, the guests are black and white, Asian, old and young, gay and straight. They may be sipping one of Red Rooster’s signature cocktails — the Earl of Harlem, for example, bourbon with Earl Grey tea and coriander syrup. They may be snacking on the addictive cornbread with honey butter while they wait for a table. Or, like Naveen Pesala, a physician who’s worked nearby for five years, they may be reconnecting with an old friend for a quick glass of prosecco. But they’re all participating in something pretty rare in New York: a truly diverse, high-end dining experience, and one that brings people to Harlem from everywhere in the city. “I’ve even run into patients here,” says Pesala, who’s joined by a friend from SoHo for the evening. “It’s a very unique place.” Unique is certainly the word to describe Red Rooster, some 15 months after Samuelsson launched it. There was plenty of hype then, and no wonder: Even among celebrity chefs he was a celebrity, known for his speedy rise in the restaurant world (executive

chef at the renowned Aquavit at age 24, and the youngest chef to earn three stars from the New York T imes); his telegenic TV persona; his hip personal style; his unusual background (born in Ethiopia, raised in Sweden); and of course his admirers in high places. He was chosen to be the chef at President Barack Obama’s first state dinner, and Red Rooster hosted a recent Obama fundraiser. With so much attention, there was bound to be some quibbling. Some purists say the food, a mix as eclectic as Samuelsson himself, isn’t really soul food and should be. Others grumble about the prices (high for the area perhaps, but not for high-end restaurants elsewhere). A
blurb in the Zagat guide calls the place “groundbreaking” and “uber-popular,” but also notes that “’Unless your name is Obama,’ it may be tough getting a table.” More striking, though, is what people — even those who don’t feel they can pay $15 for a cocktail — feel it is doing for Harlem. “It’s a great thing for the neighborhood, because he’s such a big name,” says Gloria Dawson, a graduate student at Columbia University who blogs about Harlem restaurants. “And the best thing is that this will encourage other people to take risks, and open other places in Harlem.” Dawson says she’s a particular fan of the fried yard bird (that’s chicken) and the shrimp-and-grits dish.
She’s also partial to that Earl of Harlem cocktail. But mostly, she says, she loves the scene. “It’s visually stunning, with all the artifacts and knickknacks and Harlem art,” she says. “It’s also incredibly lively.” That’s a feeling echoed by food writer Andrew Knowlton, restaurant editor at Bon Appetit magazine. “I grew up in the South, and there was just a lot of diversity in the dining rooms — especially after church,” says Knowlton. “Now I live in New York, and of course it’s a superdiverse city, but when it comes to dining out, well, it’s pretty sad that way. So Red Rooster has really done a wonderful thing.” Knowlton feels the restaurant is a reflection of
Samuelsson himself — and why not? “With his crazy background, Marcus has been grappling with who he is and where he fits in,” he says. “So he decides to move to Harlem and open this restaurant. He knows the power that restaurants have over a neighborhood.” But can a restaurant be both an international destination for high cuisine and a comfy neighborhood joint? That’s a dynamic the 41-year -old Samuelsson has clearly considered very carefully along the way. His first step was to move to Harlem, something he did about eight years ago. He’d lived in various neighborhoods, but had always been drawn uptown. He wondered why many other New Yorkers hadn’t been. “Why does someone from 89th and Columbus go to Paris more often than Harlem?” he asks, speaking to a reporter one afternoon during the lull between lunch and dinner. But it quickly becomes clear that Samuelsson’s jour ney to Red Rooster began well before that, when he was a young black man in Europe, adopted from Ethiopia with his sister. He had a crazy plan of being a top chef. “Being a person of color, things were very clear,” Samuelsson says. “Being a chef at that level I wanted just wasn’t an option.” “So you have two possibilities — you quit, or you smile and do it better,” Samuelsson continues. “I chose the second. And I said, ‘I have to go to America.”’ After his success at Samuelsson Aquavit, opened several restaurants, not all roaring successes. But Red Rooster is clearly his most ambitious project yet. Lenox Avenue may not be the Boulevard Saint-Germain, but it was, for
Samuelsson, an irresistible draw, given its rich historical associations with figures like Langston Hughes and James Baldwin. But it isn’t just history that determined his restaurant’s location. There’s a big subway stop at Lenox and 125th, a few steps from the restaurant. The bus goes right by. The express train from Times Square takes about 10 minutes. Once he found his spot, Samuelsson filled it with tiny and telling touches — reflecting both his own journey and the neighborhood he calls home. Even the bathrooms are sort of a display case — filled with fraying blackand-white photos of Harlem in years past. “So if you have a boring date, you don’t need to come out of here at all,” he quips, showing off the walls. But even a boring date, while unfortunate, wouldn’t keep most people from the dining room, which Samuelsson often walks through, shaking hands. A middle-aged white couple stops him: They want to report on a recent trip to Ethiopia. A while later, a 91-year -old black woman comes in for cof fee. Samuelsson admonishes an assistant more than once to go check on her. “People need to understand why she left her house,” he says. “It’s not for the coffee.” Speaking to Samuelsson, though, one senses he’d consider it a shame if Red Rooster were the end of the story, rather than a beginning. “What I want is to create normalcy here,” he says. “I resent it when people come to Harlem to take pictures and get back on the tour bus. This is an opportunity to get off that tour bus.” After all, he asks: “Why should New York City be confined to 50 blocks?”
