Perry looks to create city medical marijuana law JILL MCLAUGHLIN RECORD STAFF WRITER
City Council will consider a new ordinance that would place heavy restrictions on the distribution of medical marijuana within city borders. The new law would essentially ban statelicensed medical marijuana distributors from locating in city limits and selling to patients. City Councilor Jason Perry proposed the set of rules Tuesday to the Plan-
ning and Zoning Committee. The new ordinance would require medical marijuana to only be sold by a licensed pharmacist. And, each prescribed dose would need a state-issued controlled substance number and federally issued Drug Enforcement Administration number. These do not yet exist for the drug. “Until the DEA can find a way to safely administer medical cannabis, I don’t want to get into the gam-
bling game with the devil,” Perry said. “Right now, the DEA does not prescribe for Schedule 1 (controlled substances). The day will come,” he said. Cities cannot be less restrictive with state issues or state laws. “In this particular situation, we can’t be less restrictive, but we can be more restrictive,” Perry said. “We are going to be requiring it to be a licensed pharmacy. My reason for that … it is a prescription.” Perry’s main reason for
proposing the city law was the inconsistency of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the active ingredient, levels in plants. The purpose of the ordinance would be “to ensure all legal prescription drugs in all forms, both state and federally, are dispensed in such a manner that is both safe and consistent.” Medical marijuana cannot currently be administered at consistent doses, according to information provided to him, Perry said. “Maybe I would feel bet-

ter if this was the only option for people to get relief from pain or tremors. But I know there are options for all 19 conditions. This is not the saveall that some corners would want us to believe.”
Perry consulted with Chaves County Magistrate Judge K.C. Rogers. Rogers, a retired New Mexico State Police drug enforcement of ficer and authority on narcotics, advised Perry that every marijuana plant dif fers in its chemical make-up, Perry said.
“You may pull out one and test it and it may be perfectly safe. You take the next one and it may be way above,” Perry said. “There is not a way to regulate a safe form (of the drug).”
New Mexico was the first in the nation to have its health department license and regulate a nonprofit medical marijuana distribution system. People can be issued prescription cards if they qualify with any of the 19 approved

DOE postpones plan to Students to help educate on distracted driving send crew into WIPP CARLSBAD (AP) — The U.S. Department of Energy has postponed plans to get a crew underground to begin investigating a radiation leak from the federal government’s nuclear waste dump in southeastern New Mexico.
Officials on Monday said a crew of eight would enter the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant on Tuesday. But spokesman Ben Williams said that has been postponed until later this week because the real-time radiation monitors they want the team to be wearing haven’t arrived.
No one has been underground at the half-mile deep repository since the Feb. 14 radiation release, which contaminated 21 workers and sent low-levels of radiation into the air around the plant.
It’s unknown what is leaking or how extensive the contamination might be below ground at the $2 billion plant, which is the nation’s only permanent underground repository for low-level radioactive waste from nuclear weapons facilities.

Residents will get a chance beginning Friday to experience how talking and texting can affect driving. A simulation booth will be set up inside the AT&T store on North Main Street near the Roswell Mall. Beginning at 9:30 a.m., visitors can use their own phones or borrow one from the store to use during a “test drive” to check out how well they drive while distracted. Local student leaders Katy Gumford, student body president at Roswell High School, and Corey Stevens, of Goddard High School and the New Mexico Leadership Institute, are
helping educate the community about the issue. They will be at the booth Friday. “It’s a big issue, especially at our age,” Stevens said. Stevens has visited local leaders with Gumford recently to speak about National Distracted Driving Awareness Month. Stevens said he sees students every day driving and texting, talking on the phone or checking Facebook in the parking lot. “Nowadays, people have to document everything,” Stevens said. He said he has learned that driving and using the phone is not safe. “Multi-tasking isn’t possiSee DRIVING, Page A3

Refuge offers domestic violence survivors sanctuary

Cindy Wilson, executive director of the Roswell Refuge, a shelter for battered adults, speaks to the Kiwanis Club on Tuesday.
Domestic violence is much more common than you think, and it happens way too often — and chances are good you know a victim of domestic violence. “Domestic violence is generational,” said Cindy Wilson, executive director of the Roswell Refuge. “Many times, this is just the way it was for the grandmother, and the

mother, and it just keeps getting passed along.” She said people tend to just think of domestic violence as being physical in nature. “It’s not just about beatings and bruises, but it is about emotional control,” Wilson said on Tuesday. “Emotional wounds can go much deeper than any bruise.” Wilson defined domestic violence as the emotional control of any person in an intimate relationship.

“We’ve seen cases where the abuser will take away car keys, and give his spouse a cell phone and say ‘you will call every 10 minutes and you better not be late.” The Refuge provides a safe haven for women and children trying to escape abuse, but about half the time the women leave the shelter only to return to their abuser, Wilson said. In 2013, the shelter provided refuge to 215 women who had been abused by

their husbands, boyfriends or other family members. The Refuge also served 271 children who had also experienced or witnessed those acts of violence. Wilson said the shelter is looking to expand in the near future, and will be opening a thrift store to the public later this month. The Refuge began in 1981, and it is a United Way member agency. The shelter has 10 bedrooms with 25 beds, but

Civil rights group sues state over public schools SANTA FE (AP) — A national civil rights group filed a lawsuit Tuesday alleging New Mexico’s public education system violates the constitutional rights of low-income children as well as Spanishspeaking students and others whose primary language is not English. The Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund, or MALDEF, brought the lawsuit in state district court in Santa Fe on behalf of parents of about three dozen students in the Albu-
querque, Gadsden, Las Cruces, Magdalena, Santa Fe, Zuni and Espanola school districts. The legal challenge is much broader than a case filed in Gallup last month seeking to increase funding for public schools. Both lawsuits contend the state provides inadequate funding to educate “at-risk students,” many of whom are Hispanic and Native Americans, in violation of state constitutional requirements for an equitable and “sufficient” education for all children.
But the MALDEF lawsuit also says the state has failed to properly implement other provisions of law, including mandates for bilingual and multicultural educational programs and a constitutional requirement for “perfect equality” in the educational opportunities for “children of Spanish descent.” “The state as a whole does a poor job in recruiting, training and retaining teachers able to speak Spanish and the other native languages other than English,” according
Shootings push mayor to seek training money ALBUQUERQUE (AP) — Albuquerque’s mayor unveiled a plan Tuesday to put more money toward police training and the city’s response to a stillpending federal investigation into the embattled department’s use of force. Mayor Richard Berry’s budget plan sets aside around $1 million for those purposes as the city continues to draw intense criticism over recent police shootings. The move comes as the Police Department faces scrutiny over a string of 37 police shootings since 2010, including two fatal ones in March that prompted a large, violent protest on Sunday. The U.S. Justice Department has been investigating
Albuquerque police over allegations of civil rights violations and excessive use of force. As the mayor sought money to train officers on de-escalating run-ins with suspects and to institute any future Justice Department recommendations, mental health advocates called for a renewed push to get people the help they need. A coalition of advocates and business leaders on Tuesday announced a campaign to bring a new mental health hospital to Albuquerque, a move they say could reduce police confrontations with residents battling mental illness. The group says a 100bed facility is much need-
ed in the Albuquerque area. “We believe these beds can make a difference,” said Dan Serrano, a retired Albuquerque police officer and president of the Westside Chamber of Commerce. “Too often, our officers in blue are encountering people who have not gotten the help they need and something bad happens.” Last month, Albuquerque police shot and killed a homeless man, James Boyd, 38, after a long standoff in the Sandia foothills. A helmet camera video of the shooting showed Boyd turning away before officers shot him. Boyd’s death helped spark a violent protest

to the lawsuit. Funding for pre-kindergarten programs is inadequate, according to the lawsuit, and the court was asked to invalidate recent initiatives by Republican Gov. Susana Martinez, including a program of assigning A-to-F grades to schools and a teacher evaluation system heavily based on student performance on standardized testing. The state has implemented “arbitrary school accountability and teacher evaluation systems that

Cardinal Sean O'Malley blesses a family after Mass, Tuesday, along the international border wall in Nogales, Ariz.
The Catholic leaders believe that immigration is a humanitarian issue that deserves urgent attention by Congress. They cite the dozens of immigrants who die each year in the brutal desert terrain while trying to cross illegally into the United States along the roughly 2,000-mile-long border with Mexico and note that the immigrants
are simply trying to find better lives in America. “This is not just a political or economic problem,” O’Malley said Tuesday. “This is a moral problem.” Several hundred people attended the Mass, which was translated into Spanish, and a few dozen people peered through the border fence from Mexico to watch

(AP) — Roman Catholic leaders made a rare visit to the border and celebrated Mass on Tuesday in the shadow of the fence separating the U.S. and Mexico, offering Holy Communion through the steel barrier to people on the Mexican side as they sought to bring attention to the plight of immigrants. Cardinal Sean O’Malley, the leader of the Boston Archdiocese, led a delegation of bishops from around the country and Mexico in the trip to the border, less than a week after President Barack Obama discussed immigration reform in a meeting with Pope Francis. They toured the border city of Nogales, walked along a notorious section of the border that was once a popular crossing point for drug and immigrant smugglers, and celebrated Mass just a few feet from the

During the Mass, the clergymen laid a wreath at the border wall to remember those who have died. It followed a similar event in Lampedusa, Italy, last year when the pope threw a wreath into the Mediterranean Sea to remember migrants who have died attempting to reach Europe.
ALBUQUERQUE (AP) — Federal marshals shot a wanted felon Tuesday mor ning in southwest Albuquerque, sparking a small protest in a city already tense over recent shootings by Albuquerque officers, authorities said. Shots were fired as the U.S. Marshal’s Service task force moved in to arrest the man, Ber nalillo County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Aaron Williamson said. He doesn’t know if the suspect was ar med, Williamson added. The suspect’s name was being withheld, but Williamson said he is a parole absconder wanted for aggravated battery with a deadly weapon, child abuse and possession of a firearm. Sheriff’s officials, state police and Albuquerque police are investigating the shooting.
Feds award contract for major Navajo water project

The pipeline project stems from a settlement reached with the Navajo Nation over water rights in the San Juan Basin. The Obama administration’s proposed budget for the next fiscal year calls for an $80 million investment in the project. Once finished, it will have the capacity to deliver clean water to about 250,000 people.
Tourism officials building “burrito byway”
SANTA FE (AP) — The New Mexico Tourism Department is looking for the state’s best breakfast burritos. The department Monday opened nominations for limited spots on what it has dubbed the “New Mexico T rue Breakfast Burrito Byway.” According to tourism officials, the breakfast burrito was developed by a Santa Fe restaurant. It has also become a staple of Albuquerque’s Inter national Balloon Fiesta, where a hand-held breakfast is a necessity. The “New Mexico T rue Breakfast Burrito Byway” will identify the best of the burritos across New Mexico, based on nominations made by the public over the next two weeks.

Manningâ€™s new lawyer decries sentence Army Private Chelsea Manningâ€™s 35-year sentence for leaking reams of classified information is out of proportion with the of fenses for which she was convicted, the lawyer who will represent her in court-martial appeals said Tuesday. Manning began serving her confinement at Fort Leavenworth, Kan., in August for sending hundreds of thousands of secret military and diplomatic documents, plus some battlefield video, to the anti-secrecy website WikiLeaks. Manning retained Albuquerque attorney Nancy Hollander and her law partner Vincent Ward last month for the next phase of her military court proceedings. Hollander pointed out in a telephone interview that Manningâ€™s sentence
far exceeds the prison terms of 2 1/2 years or less that U.S. courts have given to others who disclosed government secrets to media.
â€œItâ€™s a very long sentence compared to other sentences for similar kinds of situations that Iâ€™m aware of, or even dis-
Marijuana conditions. At least 170 state-licensed patients live in Chaves County. The state has 23 licensed nonprofit distributors, mostly in the northern region. The DOH has announced a plan to add 12 more distributors in the state to meet an increasing demand. Under a new proposal, producers would be able to boost crops to keep up with a growing number of patients. Perry said the city had looked into medical marijuana issues with zoning since 2010, as it related to state and federal laws. He was concerned about legally allowing a business to open only to later find that a change in federal administration would put the city in hot water. â€œThe current administration is turning a blind eye to cannabis,â€? Perry said. â€œWhat if we get another president, not Obama? Now we put ourselves in a situation of a federal indictment and have to deal with a federal lawsuit. Weâ€™re not saying anything is illegal. This is how everything is distributed. Weâ€™re one step above and ahead of every city in New Mexico.â€? His other option was to propose to ban sales completely, Perry said. â€œThis is saying, once the feds get their ducks in a

Gumford said.

After speaking to a pharmacist, he was enlightened, he said. The substance in marijuana can already be prescribed in other pharmaceuticals and taken without getting high, he said.
â€œItâ€™s the exact same thing,â€? Perry said. â€œItâ€™s not a matter of anyone not getting relief of their pain. The druginduced high does not come with it. This is just saying, if any prescription is being given out as prescribed, it needs to be handled by a licensed pharmacy.â€?
Committee members and Councilors Tabitha Denny and Savino Sanchez voted to send the ordinance to City Council April 10. Councilors will consider whether to advertise the ordinance for a public hearing, in order for the new law to be considered at its meeting in May. Compassionate Distributors, which operates a statelicensed store in Ruidoso, has invested in a building in Roswell and expects to open its doors to the satellite location within the week.
The distributor secured a city permit by applying as a professional medical office that provides alternative health care.
Perry and city staff have researched past city licenses and said he believes the owners of Compassionate Distributors misrepresented the business. He intends to seek action to revoke the license.

Taylor said. â€œItâ€™s a whole new way that we have to think, just as we did with the awareness of, you donâ€™t drink and drive. All these accidents are totally preventable.

sentencing, Manning declared a desire to live as a woman named Chelsea, having been diagnosed with gender dysphoria. With good behavior, the 26-year-old from Oklahoma could be released as early as February 2020, according to her trial attorney, David Coombs. Hollander said it would be premature to discuss legal strategy, since she hasnâ€™t yet received a transcript of Manningâ€™s trial from which to begin crafting an appeal. Nevertheless, â€œI know the issues that I believe are some of the main issues that will come up,â€? Hollander said. Beside the sentence length, she said the case raises issues â€œbig issuesâ€? about freedom of information and why the government keeps certain things secret.

similar situations like rape and murder,â€? Hollander said. Military prosecutors at Manningâ€™s trial called the former intelligence analyst an anarchist hacker and traitor who indiscriminately leaked information she had sworn to protect, knowing it would be seen by al-Qaida. It was among the largest leaks of classified information in U.S. history. Manning supporters consider her a whistleblower who exposed U.S. war crimes and diplomatic hypocrisy while working in Iraq. Manning, then known as Bradley Manning, was convicted in July of 20 crimes, including six violations of the Espionage Act, but was acquitted of the most serious charge, aiding the enemy. After

confidentiality of a client, then they will be terminated, and that includes me,â€? Wilson said. Wilson said she has had phone calls from the police wanting to speak to a client, and she is unable to confirm or deny that the woman is at the shelter. â€œSometimes the officer will say, â€˜I know sheâ€™s there, I just dropped her off,â€™ but I am still unable to breach that confidentiality,â€? Wilson said. The reason for strict confidentiality is to protect the safety of the women and children who are living in the Refuge. â€œThey are often in a pattern where they will go from one man to another, or they have no where else to go.â€? Families are only allowed to stay at the Refuge for 90 days, and then they have to seek housing elsewhere. First United The Methodist Churchâ€™s New Beginnings program is working with the shelter to provide furnishings, pots and pans and other things needed for families to begin a new life, and The Refuge works to put clients in HUD housing or in apartments, said Mike Puckett, a Kiwanian and a member of First United Methodist Church. â€œWeâ€™re always accepting donations for the shelter, and anything we canâ€™t use we pass on to the thrift store,â€? Puckett said. Getting survivors to realize their behavior has to change is a struggle, but the Refuge also provides programs to teach both survivors and abusers ways to change their behaviors. â€œNot all battered spouses are female,â€? Wilson said, â€œand we often take in families with little more than the clothes on their backs.â€? One family of four turned up at the Refuge recently in their pajamas and nightgowns. â€œThat was how they were able to escape, just wearing their nightgowns,â€? she said. Ultimately, you canâ€™t save people from themselves, but you can try and educate survivors about their behavior, Wilson said. With self-awareness, can come self-confidence. Programs offered at The Refuge include a Womenâ€™s Empower ment Group, which is an educational support group designed for women to gain knowledge about domestic violence. There is also a childrenâ€™s group, â€œHelping Hand,â€?
which is an ongoing art workshop and support group for children ages 512 who have witnessed domestic violence. Finally, there is the domestic violence offenders treatment program, Helping Explore Accountable Lifestyles (HEAL). This program educates men and women who display abusive behavior in intimate relationships, Wilson said. The goal of HEAL is to end all forms of violence by the abusive person and ensure safety of the victim. â€œI had one young lady who had a job interview,â€? Wilson recalled. â€œWhen I asked her what she was going to wear to the interview, she said, â€˜oh, just this.â€™â€? This, Wilson said, included cut-off jeans and a grungy shirt. Wilson took the young woman back to the thrift store and picked out a nice outfit and shoes, and she told the woman, â€œwhen you get to the interview, I want you to stand tall and show them who you really are.â€? A short while later, the young woman retur ned, excited she had been hired. â€œIt wasnâ€™t the outfit that got her hired, but it was the woman in the outfit,â€? Wilson said. â€œUnfortunately, a lot of times these women donâ€™t understand business or how to present themselves.â€? The more tools The Refuge can provide to the survivors who come there seeking refuge, the better the chances are they will be successful when they leave the shelter. â€œWe are always in the need of mentors, and we also need you to be engaged,â€? Wilson said. â€œLook around, domestic violence is much more common than we think. Itâ€™s not a comfortable topic, but we all have to be aware of it.â€? The Refuge operates a 24-hour crisis hotline at 627-8361. Anyone in need of its services is urged to call for help. Puckett said the New Beginnings program is in need of an inexpensive location where it can store fur nishings and other donations. Anyone interested in helping with or making donations to the New Beginnings program may contact First United Methodist Church at 6221881.

Much ado about Noah A4 Wednesday, April 2, 2014
It wasn’t so long ago that conservative Christians believed Hollywood to be evil and some preachers instructed their congregations not to go to movies lest they be tempted beyond their ability to resist. Now Christians are debating film content. That’s progress of a sort. The main complaint from critics of the film “Noah,” which opened last Friday with an impressive opening day take of an estimated $44 million in ticket sales, is that it doesn’t accurately reflect the rather slim biblical account in Genesis. Here’s some breaking news for the critics: Noah didn’t speak English, as Russell Crowe does in the film, so right there we have a departure from biblical accuracy. One should not turn to Hollywood for theological truth.
In his book “Hollywood vs. America,” critic Michael Medved refers to the film industry as “The Poison Factory,” not the “dream factory” it likes to call itself. There is plenty of evidence — and he includes it in his book — to support that conclusion, but there are also many independent films being made today that act as antidotes to that poison if people seek them out, buy tickets and spread the word.
Roswell Daily Record
“Heaven is for Real” is one such film. Based on the best-selling book by Todd Burpo, the movie was directed by Randall Wallace, an evangelical Christian who also directed “Secretariat” and wrote the screenplays for “Braveheart” and “Pearl Harbor.” Back to Noah. I asked Michael Medved about the film. He emailed me that while he believes the film is “surpassingly strange ... On balance,” he says, he’s “glad they made the film; unlike so much puerile pabulum from Hollyweird, this serious and seriously flawed of fering gives thoughtful movie-goers plenty to talk about.” He might have added that controversy also sells tickets, sometimes more than newspaper ads and movie trailers. As for the storyline (the real one), what we know from Genesis
is that God considered Noah a “righteous man.” For that reason Noah and his family (and the animals) would be spared so they could repopulate the Earth after the flood. God’s reason for wiping out what he had created was because “every inclination of the thoughts of the human heart was only evil all the time” (Genesis 6:5). From there we get a weather report of rain for 40 days and 40 nights, the opening of the Earth’s floodgates, a dove going out to see if the water had receded and God providing a rainbow as a sign of his promise never to flood the Earth again. That’s it at warp speed. While dramatic enough, there are not enough additional details to sustain a movie plot long enough for people to finish their overpriced candy bars, tubs of
popcorn and supersized Cokes or justify the obscene ticket prices ($16.50 in NYC). Some critics claim there is a heavy environmental message in the film, which undercuts the power of the real story. Aren’t there subtle and not so subtle messages in most films? After decades in which Hollywood mostly ignored or stereotyped faith, Christians should be happy they have gotten the film industry’s attention. Successful films like “The Passion of the Christ,” “The Bible” and “Son of God” prove that such stories “sell.” Instead of nitpicking over “Noah,” the Christian community should not only be cheering, but buying tickets to encourage more such movies. Hollywood may not

Leveling the playing field
As of Monday, companies that have at least 50 employees and do at least $50,000 a year in business with the federal government have new benchmarks for hiring military veterans and people with disabilities. Depending on your point of view, this is either more burdensome federal regulation or a long-needed reform. We take the latter view. It is now the stated policy of the United States that if you take federal money, you have to do more for veterans than slap a bumper sticker on your car. And you have to value the contributions that people with disabilities can make, regardless of how uncomfortable they might make you feel or what accommodations you might have to make. If you don’t want to comply, don’t take the government’s money. But more than 171,000 companies in the United States sell goods or services to the government, which is a pretty good customer. Federal contractors or subcontractors employ about 16 million workers, about 20 percent of the nation’s workforce. Besides, it’s the right thing to do. The Labor Department published its new rules last fall, setting “benchmarks” of 7 percent for people with disabilities and 8 percent for veterans, a number that could be adjusted depending on the number of veterans in the workforce. The benchmarks are goals, not mandates, but companies that consistently fail to meet the goals could face penalties. Compliance could be a little tricky, but nothing that a competent human resources office can’t handle. The 1990 Americans with Disabilities Act says companies can’t ask employees or prospective employees about disabilities because it could lead to discrimination. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission has made an exception so that federal contractors can comply with the new rules. However, the rules allow employees whose disabilities may not be obvious to opt out of self-reporting. Companies that fail to meet the benchmarks will have to develop good-faith plans to increase hiring of both veterans and those with disabilities. Unemployment among veterans stood at 7.3 percent in February, lower than the overall unemployment rate of 7.4 percent. But the rate is 9.9 percent among veterans of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars. Among people with disabilities, the February unemployment rate was 14.3 percent. Some employers’ groups have complained that the 7 percent benchmark rate is higher than the average number of disabled workers in the general workforce. The Labor Department last fall estimated that the new rules would help as many as 585,000 people with disabilities and more than 200,000 veterans get new jobs. Given the lingering economic malaise, those numbers might be seriously overstated. Even so, the new rules should help level a playing field that for too long has been tilted away from too many qualified workers. REPRINTED FROM THE ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH

The spring of shrinking hopes MARK SHIELDS CREATORS SYNDICATE
Joseph Napolitan, who essentially created the profession of campaign consultant and who departed these earthly precincts this past December, was a wise man. He used to tell Democratic candidates and officeholders whom he counseled “to never underestimate the intelligence of the voters, nor overestimate the amount of knowledge at their disposal.” His point was that it was the candidate’s and the campaign’s responsibility to inform and educate voters and that if by Election Day, “the voters still do not understand what the candidate is trying to tell them, then it is the candidate’s fault — not the voters’.” That is as true today as it was when Napolitan wrote it more than 50 years ago. Another timeless rule of Napolitan’s is particularly sobering for Democratic candidates in the spring of 2014: “Do not underestimate the impact of an unpopular national administration.” Here’s how he
put it: “Assuming the merits of the candidates are about equal, if you represent the party of an unpopular administration, you probably will lose.” Some seven months before Election Day, the political indicators are not encouraging for Democrats. First, the answer to one question — “Do you think things in the nation are generally headed in the right direction, or do you feel things are off on the wrong track?” — essentially provides an EKG of the American body politic. The past dozen years of failing U.S. wars in Iraq and Afghanistan along with the widespread pain and sense of betrayal inflicted by the financial crisis depleted Americans’ historic optimism. Five years ago, in April of 2009, American voters were evenly split, with 43 percent seeing their nation “generally headed in the right direction,” and 43 percent feeling “things are off on the wrong track,” according to the respected Wall Street Journal-NBC News poll. In the most recent survey, just 26 percent of Americans answer “right direction,” while 65 percent say “wrong track.”
In that same poll, only 41 percent of voters approved of the job President Barack Obama was doing, while 54 percent disapproved. Here’s the dirty little secret that keeps Democrats up at night: Any president’s job rating generally cannot rise more than 15 percent above the nation’s right-direction-wrongtrack number. Thus, as long as voters remain so disappointed and discouraged about the direction of the U.S., then Obama’s job rating will remain stuck in negative territory, and Democratic candidates in November will understandably fear “the impact of an unpopular administration.” Pessimism follows bad numbers. This week’s CBS News poll reflected just that by measuring the enthusiasm of voters in the two parties and finding 70 percent of Republican voters enthusiastic about voting next November, while just 58 percent of Democratic voters described themselves as enthusiastic about the 2014 election. You only count in American elections if you actually do vote. If real estate is all about loca-
tion, location, location, then elections are all about turnout, turnout, turnout. One consistent result that lifts the spirits of beleaguered Democrats is the continuing unpopularity of the Republican Party. Not that the Democrats are widely revered; they’re not. Still, Democrats’ positive rating of 35 percent contrasted to their unfavorable rating of 38 percent looks awfully good when compared to the GOP’s 27 percent positive rating to 45 percent negative (which on the lists of 10 institutions and individuals, including labor unions, puts the Republican Party ahead of only Vladimir Putin.) It’s true that a week can be a lifetime in politics, and six months can be an eternity. But for Democrats, with seven months to go, the 2014 road, as of now, is straight uphill.

nity, digest fiber, detoxify poisons and drugs, and even make some vitamins. So the answer to your question is that some germs are beneficial. In the “old days” (before a few years ago) we thought that most of the germs that live on or in us all of our lives were not affecting our health in any way. We thought of them as just being along for the ride, bumming food and warmth from us. In the past few years, there has been an explosion in our understanding of the germs that always live on or in us. We always knew there were a lot of them: There are 10 of them for every one of the cells
in our body. There are four main categories of germs that can enter our bodies: viruses, bacteria, fungi and parasites. Viruses are probably the most familiar. They are a marvel of biological simplicity. They consist of only a thread of genetic material — DNA or RNA — inside a protective coat. To survive and reproduce, a virus must penetrate into a cell. Once inside, it takes over the cell’s biological equipment and makes it churn out new viruses. Bacteria cause many common diseases, including ear infections, strep throat and

DEAR DOCTOR K: Are all ger ms dangerous to our health? DEAR READER: Not all microorganisms (also called germs or microbes) are bad for our health — far from it. Our knowledge of the impact of ger ms on our health has expanded greatly in just the past five years. I think of germs in two categories. First, there are the germs that enter our bodies from the outside world and are usually with us only temporarily. Second, there are the germs that constantly live on and in our bodies. They live on our skin, in our mouth, in our digestive tract and elsewhere.

Germs in the first category can sometimes make us sick. Other times, they are killed by our immune system before that can happen. For years we have known that many of the germs in the second category — the ones living on or in us — are beneficial. These good microbes help us bolster healthy immu-

Legion licensing feared by some members LOCAL
Roswell Daily Record
Last month, I was contacted by current members of local American Legion Post 48 Inc. who did not think granting an alcohol license by the city and the NM Alcohol and Gaming Division was a good idea. In fact, local history proves their concern is justified. When I asked why they didn’t bring their objections to the licensing agents of Roswell and the state, fear of reprisal and intimidation from Post leaders was the common reply. As a veterans’ advocate, I will give some background on this issue. But, I also encourage members (as a group) to be present at the City Council meeting (April 10 at 7 p.m.) when City Councilors, as a legislative body, will hear pros and cons of this licensure request. Not being a member of AL Post 28 Inc., I can only publish your disagreement to licensing your Post, but there seems to be support for your concerns. Organizations defend the use of alcohol and gam-
bling as a justifiable way to raise funds for worthy charitable contributions. Most states require records (proving) 80 percent or more of funds raised by alcohol and gambling went to qualified charities. No “funds” went to pay for salaries and benefits of organization members. Sounds good, but here in Roswell, we have had two veterans organizations closed by the state or a state veterans organization for violations of state and federal alcohol and gaming laws. It was reported to me one local veteran “manager” (DAV) was found (by local audit) to have personally pocketed over $200,000 during several
years of his control of operations. He was expelled from the organization, but no charges were filed against him. Our local VFW Post was closed by the NM alcohol and gaming licensing authority for providing alcoholic beverages to non-Post members and underage (teenage) females. That defines a “history” of local misconduct or mismanagement. National veteran advocate Jim Strictland reported in his “VA Watchdog” blog (1/31/11): “ (A certain bill) would sanction small numbers of slot machines, “card tables” and Bingo nights at VFW Posts. I search daily for news of interest to our readers. Each day I stumble upon numerous articles lamenting the dwindling memberships at veterans service organizations. It’s usually the VFW and American Legion who have a consistent theme; ‘Increase revenues and bring in young veterans to keep the tradition alive.” Jim went on to present
an article from one of his readers who stated, “When I retur ned from almost three years of honorable service in Vietnam (1970), I considered joining a VFW. I was mildly chagrined to find that I wasn’t welcome. I hadn’t served in a combat zone, and Vietnam was considered a ‘conflict’ — not a war! In the ’70s, we Vietnam era vets weren’t very welcome anywhere. I know any number of (female veterans) who were told they could join the Ladies Auxiliary (spouses of member veterans), but not the veterans’ VSO. T oday, the message is changing. These once thriving groups are grudgingly inviting younger veterans (yes, and even females) to join up. They really need your money, so now you’re welcome.” Strictland (Korean and Vietnam veteran), who has appeared before many Washington VA sub-committees, wrapped his commentary with, “In one particular article, the mem-

bers (VFW and AL) are seeking approvals to introduce slot machine gambling and alcoholic beverage ‘canteens’ into their facilities as a scheme to bring in desperately needed money. In this one brief article, the point is made as to why these groups have lost the attention and (respect) of so many Americans. They would propose to you that to keep their joint open, we should allow consumption of alcohol and gambling in their bars. One gets the message that you aren’t particularly cared for, but your dollars are. Oh, and another reason these activities are so ‘beneficial’ is the ‘charitable giving’ the organization is able to do, thanks to alcohol and gambling revenues.” Roswell’s own history of local organization mismanagement and disregard for the laws/regulations concerning alcohol and gambling are a validation of Jim’s anger. Another “downside” to VSOs having alcohol and
gambling activities is the negative impact on veterans who contracted Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) from their combat experience. Combat veterans returning with PTSD are highly susceptible to alcohol and drug abuse. Huge amounts of medical and psychological evidence support this axiom. Veteran suicides, violent acts, destruction of families are only a few of the traumas resulting from easy access to alcohol and illicit drugs. The “risk” of veterans having easy access to these destructive substances in an environment provided by VSO “canteens” should be obvious to rational people. Protecting our fellow brother and sister veterans is, or should be, the first “charity” to be addressed by VSOs, don’t you think? Roswell has lost its VFW and its DAV posts directly due to violations of alcohol regulations and gambling infractions (embezzlement). Let’s not lose another one! God bless.

Missed the health care deadline? It’s not too late
WASHINGTON (AP) — It’s not too late to get covered. A few routes remain open for those who missed the health care law’s big enrollment deadline. Millions may be eligible for a second chance to sign up for subsidized insurance this year. And people who get coverage after the deadline can still avoid, or at least reduce, the fine for going uninsured. Here are five options for those still without insurance: ——— 1. TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE GRACE PERIOD This special break was created for anyone who began enrolling in an insurance marketplace by Monday’s deadline but didn’t finish. That includes people stymied by website outages or overwhelmed phone lines, missing information on applications, and other problems or con-
fusion. Those who started an application on HealthCare.gov should log on and finish it soon. Federal officials say they will take what time is necessary to work through cases pending online and will accept paper applications until April 7. Rules vary in the 14 states running their own insurance marketplaces. For most people, going through a marketplace opens the door to lower costs. Those who use the grace period will get coverage starting May 1 and won’t owe a fine. ——— 2. USE A SPECIAL ENROLLMENT PERIOD The government also is offering special extensions for a host of problems that might have prevented people from signing up through a marketplace: Natural disasters.

Mr. Clean artist Black dies at 92 KETTERING, Ohio (AP) — The Ohio artist who created the Mr. Clean character that became a long-lasting advertising hit has died at age 92. Fairmont Presbyterian Church in Kettering says services are planned Saturday for Harry Richard Black. The Dayton Daily News reports Black died Sunday at his home after a brief illness. Consumer products maker Procter & Gamble Co. credits Black with creating the muscular bald man who cleans things up quickly. The company chose his depiction to represent its cleaner when it launched in 1958. Mr. Clean quickly became a popular brand and advertising character. Black also was among artists behind depictions of Smokey Bear for U.S. Forest Service fire-prevention messages. The Philadelphia native opened his own studio in 1950 and did illustrations for national companies and magazines. He was a longtime educator at colleges.
Robert Frank Tellez
A rosary is scheduled for 7 p.m., Thursday, April 3, 2014, at Ballard Funeral Home Chapel for Robert Frank Tellez, 70, who passed away Monday, March 31, 2014 in Roswell. Roswell Veterans Honor Guard will conduct military
services. Robert was born February 11, 1944, in Roswell, NM, to Frank Tellez and Lala Arias Tellez. Both preceded him in death. He is also preceded in death by his brother Ralph Tellez and brother -in-law Leo Carrillo Sr. Those left to cherish his memory are his wife of 43 years Eva Tellez of the family home in Roswell; sons Robert “Jef f” Tellez; Richard Hill and wife Crystal, Isaac Montoya and his daughters Breanne and Zayanna; sisters Bonnie Lenture and husband Bill; and Delia Ventura; brotherin-law Eddie Carrillo and wife Dianne; Mando Carrillo and wife Becky; Alfred Carrillo and wife Dolores; and Pete Carrillo and wife Dillie; sister-in-law Crusita Carrillo; two grandchildren Jacob Tellez and Kaitlyn Tellez; nephews Ralph Jr, Frank, Mike, Pat, Donnie and Michael; and niece Michelle. Also surviving him are his four -legged babies Tara, Nina, Chiquita, Jasmine, Monster, Lou and Sophie. Robert had a degree in business administration with a minor in marketing; he worked for NM DOT for over 25 years as an equipment manager. Robert served as a Sergeant in the

To seek a “special enrollment period,” contact the federal call center, at 1800-318-2596, or your state marketplace and explain what went wrong. It’s on the honor system. If the extension is approved, that brings another 60 days to enroll. Also, at any time during the year, certain life events — such as changing jobs, getting married or divorced, or becoming a parent — open a 60-day window to sign up for marketplace coverage. ——— 3. SIGN UP FOR MEDICAID Those who qualify can still enroll in Medicaid — there’s no deadline. Eligibility is based on income and varies from state to state. About half the states
expanded their Medicaid programs. The main beneficiaries of the change are adults earning up to about $16,100 per year, with no children living at home. Previously, Medicaid was limited mostly to poor children and their parents and people with disabilities. ——— 4. BUY INSURANCE OUTSIDE THE MARKETPLACES Buyers can always go directly to an insurance company, but it may be expensive. Plans bought outside the marketplaces don’t come with gover nment subsidies that hold down the cost for people with low or mid-level incomes. But they do include the law’s consumer protections. For example, insurers can’t turn down customers because of preexisting medical conditions. Even after the deadline, buying a plan that meets

the law’s essential coverage standard reduces the penalty owed, which is based on the number of months without coverage. The fine for going uninsured all year is the greater of two formulas: about 1 percent of household income above the tax-filing threshold of $10,150 or $95 per adult and $47.50 per child under 18, up to
$285 per family. It’s due to the IRS in April 2015. ——— 5. GET READY FOR NEXT TIME Open enrollment for 2015 is coming later this year. It’s scheduled to begin Nov. 15 and run just three months. That’s another chance to get covered or switch into a plan with subsidies.
Chicago house music legend Frankie Knuckles dead at 59
CHICAGO (AP) — Frankie Knuckles, a Grammy-winning Chicago disc jockey known as the “Godfather of House Music” who worked with artists including Michael Jackson and Diana Ross, has died at age 59. Knuckles died Monday in Chicago, the Cook County medical examiner said Tuesday. The medical examiner said a cause of death was not available. Knuckles is considered a key figure in the evolution of the house music genre, dating back three decades to venues in Chicago and New York. “When you’re as fortunate as most of us working DJs to be able to share our creative blessings with the rest of the world, no matter how great or small, wouldn’t you agree that it’s best to give the world the best of who you are?” Knuckles said, in a quote provided Tuesday in a release from his company, Def Mix Productions. Mayor Rahm Emanuel said Tuesday that Chicago has lost “one of its most treasured cultural pioneers.” Knuckles was born Francis Nicholls on Jan. 18, 1955, in the Bronx. He worked as a DJ in the early 1970s in New York before
US Army during the Vietnam War. He was an avid hunter. He had a title in Championship Boxing that appeared in the Roswell Daily Record. Robert was a fair man, never held a grudge against anyone. He loved working on his vehicles and spending time at his second home in Ruidoso where he liked to feed the deer. Arrangements have been entrusted to Ballard Funeral Home and Crematory.

You have reason to want to change directions, and you will act in, what others will believe to be, an unanticipated YOUR HOROSCOPE way. Little do they know how well thought out many of your ideas are. A partner could toss more seriousness into a situation. Tonight: Buy a new item on the way home.

The problem is that one person, who has been more than difficult for a while, could try to stand in your way. Open up to some more innovative ideas, and you might find a solution. Tonight: All smiles. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) Pull back a little, and try not to initiate any new projects or ideas right now.

Brown’s lawyer asks judge to block jail transfer
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Chris Brown’s attorney has asked a Los Angeles judge to block an order that would transfer the jailed R&B singer to Washington, D.C., for his upcoming misdemeanor assault trial. Brown is being held without bail and is due to go on trial on April 17 in Washington on the assault charge. Last week, a judge in Washington authorized U.S. marshals to transport
‘Divergent’ is a hit
NEW YORK (AP) — It’s good news for novelist Veronica Roth: “Divergent” is a hit at the box office and a blockbuster at book stores. A spokeswoman for HarperCollins Children’s Books said Tuesday that the young adult series set in a dystopian future has been selling 500,000 copies a week over the past three weeks. The movie “Divergent” is based on the first book and stars Shailene Woodley, Theo James and Kate Winslet. The action-thriller was released March 21 and has already made nearly $100 million.
Brown from Los Angeles for the trial. The Grammy-winning singer’s lawyer Mark Geragos filed a motion Tuesday asking a judge to block that order and instead release Brown to his custody just before the trial date.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) Pace yourself, and understand what is happening. If you follow your sixth sense, you will be successful. Your creativity also is likely to flourish.

Beltre’s walk-off single lifts Rangers to win Wednesday, April 2, 2014 Phone: 575-622-7710, ext. 304
ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Adrian Beltre singled home Shin-Soo Choo with the game winner in the ninth inning, and the Texas Rangers saved a run on a successful replay challenge in a 3-2 victory against the Philadelphia Phillies on Tuesday night. Choo, who also scored the tying run in the seventh, reached base for the fourth time on a walk to start the ninth against Phillies left-hander Mario Hollands (0-1), who was making his major league debut. After Elvis Andrus’ sacrifice bunt and walk to Prince Fielder, Phillies manager R yne Sandberg went to right-hander B.J. Rosenberg. Beltre singled softly to right-center field,

scoring Choo without a throw. New Texas closer Joakim Soria got the win with a perfect ninth inning in his season debut. The first replay review of the series was a successful challenge by Rangers manager Ron Washington and helped keep a run off the board in Philadelphia’s two-run sixth inning. Philadelphia’s Ben Revere was initially called safe at second base by Cory Blaser on a pickof f attempt by Martin Perez. Washington asked for the review, which showed second baseman Donnie Murphy’s glove on Revere’s back as he caught the ball before a diving Revere’s hand was back on the bag. Revere would have scored on
Ryan Howard’s double later in the inning, but instead only Jimmy Rollins came home for a 2-0 lead. Rollins broke the scoreless tie with a single. Washington decided against a challenge moments before the reversal. Jim Joyce called Cesar Hernandez safe at third on a sacrifice bunt by Revere, and Washington came out to talk to the crew chief but didn’t challenge. Replay showed the call was correct.

Rocket girls Small things add up to 9-5 win for Roswell win again PREP SOFTBALL
KEVIN J. KELLER RECORD SPORTS EDITOR
Everybody loves the big play: A thunderous slam dunk, the picture-perfect passing touchdown or the towering home run. Each exemplifies the beauty of its sport in a different way. But there’s a special kind of beauty in doing the small things as well. All those small things added up to 9-5 win for the Roswell softball team in Game 1 of its doubleheader with visiting Portales on Tuesday. The Coyotes pounded out 14 total hits in the game, but only two of them went for extra bases and 11 of them came in the fourth and fifth innings. In short, Roswell painted a beautiful masterpiece in how to wear down an opposing pitcher and advance station to station. “We concentrate with our two-strike drill is what we call it. We’re just trying to go bag to bag,” said Roswell coach Art Sandoval. “We’re not trying to kill the ball or anything like that. When we’re behind in the count a little bit, we just want to place it and try to get singles. “Punch is the word we use. Just punch it, punch it, punch it. It worked.” It worked especially well in the fourth and fifth innings. Trailing 4-0, the Coyotes strung together

NMMI 10-5, Portales 8-4 NMMI claimed a pair of wins on Tuesday, sweeping a doubleheader from Portales at NMMI Ballpark. In Game 1, the Colts broke a 55 tie with five runs in the home half of the fourth to pull away for the victory. Jared Sprague picked up the victory in relief for the Colts after allowing three runs on two hits and striking out four in 2 1 ⁄ 3 innings. Blade Allen came on and gave up just one hit over the final 1 2⁄3 innings to get the save. Thomas Haley led the Colt offense with three RBIs. Mateo Fierro knocked in two runs. Both went 2 for 3 at the dish. In Game 2, Portales had the game-tying run on third with one
out in the seventh, but NMMI held on to win. Omar Legarda reached on a walk, moved to second on a groundout and went to third on a wild pitch in the seventh. But, he was picked off at third by Gavin Maloney for the second out. Maloney then induced a flyball to right for the game-clinching out. Portales scored once in the first, second, fifth and sixth innings. The Colts scored once in the fourth and four times in the fifth. Maloney got the win in relief. He gave up one hit and one run in 2 1⁄3 innings. At the plate, Daniel Zaragoza, Jake Guerrero and Eugenio Campos each had an RBI. Caleb Saiz was 2 for 3.
Maryland, Stanford book tickets to Final Four
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — The Maryland Terrapins are headed back to the Final Four for the first time since they won it all back in 2006. All-American Alyssa Thomas scored 22 points and grabbed 13 rebounds as Maryland advanced to the Terrapins’ first Final Four since winning the 2006 national championship, holding off Louisville 76-73 Tuesday night in the Cardinals’ home arena. The Terrapins (28-6) reached their fourth Final Four all-time. They pulled off their second straight upset in Louisville with this victory much harder in essentially a home game for the third-seeded Cardinals, with a crowd of 14,002 mostly in Louisville red. Shoni Schimmel scored 31 points, missing a tying 3-pointer off the back rim just before the buzzer. Louisville (33-5) missed a chance for a second straight Final Four with the Cardinals’ season ending shy of the national championship game they lost a year ago. Lexie Brown added 20 points for Maryland with her dad, former NBA player Dee, in the stands. Now an assistant coach with the NBA’s Sacramento Kings, he got the night off to watch his daughter play.

Rutan had 12 points, all on 3pointers. The fourth-seeded Terrapins will play undefeated Notre Dame on Sunday in Nashville in a national semifinal. Antonita Slaughter added 16 points for Louisville, and Asia Taylor had 12. Schimmel went cold missing seven straight shots at one point in the second half. Then the senior nearly brought Louisville back from a 12-point deficit, scoring eight points within the final 18 seconds. After Thomas hit one free throw with 3.5 seconds left, the Cardinals got the ball down the court and into Schimmel’s hands for an open look at the basket. But her would-be tying 3 clanked off the back rim, and the Terrapins piled on top of each other on the court celebrating. Stanford 74, North Carolina 65 STANFORD, Calif.

high 17 points on the way to regional MVP honors, Amber Orrange added 14 and Bonnie Samuelson knocked down three 3-pointers for 13 points off the bench for Stanford (34-3), which had its streak of five straight Final Fours snapped last March. Since the disappointment of that early exit against Georgia in the Spokane Regional semifinals, Ogwumike, Ruef and their fellow seniors have made it their mission to get back to women’s basketball’s biggest stage. When the final buzzer sounded, Stanford’s players jumped in delight and quickly pulled on hats and T -shirts and began dancing at center court. Allisha Gray scored 19 points for No. 4 seed North Carolina (2710), which couldn’t pull off a Final Four reunion with Sylvia Hatchell after the coach’s seasonlong battle with leukemia. North Carolina got the ball back with 49 seconds left after an offensive foul on Ruef but Xylina McDaniel missed a layin on the left side and Ruef secured the rebound. Samuelson converted two free throws with 21.1 to go. Diamond DeShields was limited to 13 points on 5 for 15 shooting for North Carolina, missing all but one of her six 3-point tries.

Bills stadium group meets with sense of urgency
BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) — Bills president Russ Brandon can appreciate how eight years is not much time to establish a plan to secure the franchise’s long-term future in Buffalo. “That’s the reason, we’re standing here today,” Brandon said Tuesday, after a newly formed stadium search committee met for the first time. “This will be a long process. We have a lot of work that needs to be done. But I know our group is up for the task.” Called the “New Stadium Work Group,” it is a committee made up public and private leaders and Bills executives. They will be responsible for making recommendations on whether a new stadium or renovations to the team’s current home best fit the franchise’s needs to remain viable in Buffalo once the Bills lease expires in 2022. The group met with a raised sense of urgency in establishing a plan, because the team’s future has been left uncertain following the death of Hall of Fame owner Ralph Wilson last week. The franchise is expected to be placed into a trust before being sold within a few years, opening the

possibility of the Bills being relocated. The Bills are essentially locked into playing at Ralph Wilson Stadium through 2019, under terms of a 10-year lease agreement they reached with state and county governments in December 2012. The deal features a $400 million penalty the Bills would have to pay in the event a court ruled in favor of the team breaking the lease and relocating. In 2020, however, the Bills have a onetime opportunity to opt out of the lease for about $28 million. “I don’t think anybody here could really speak to what the future holds right now,” Lt. Gov. Robert Duffy said. “But there is a sense of urgency with this group. We spoke about that. I think everybody understands the seriousness of the process.” The group was formed as a result of the lease agreement, and is currently made up of 20 of out of a potential 21 members — including Sen. Charles Schumer, who was not in attendance Tuesday. Brandon, Duffy and Erie County Executive Mark Poloncarz will serve as co-chairmen. On Tuesday, members were updated on the team’s lease and the status current renovations being done at the stadium. Poloncarz called it premature to begin discussing what the best stadium option might be. “I don’t want people to think we were sitting in here and made the determination, ‘Yes, there’s going to be a new stadium.’ That’s not the case,” he said. “What we’re doing is putting in place the pieces to make those determinations. Anything else would be pure speculation.” Though no definitive timetable has been set, the group is expected to have a framework of ideas in place before the team is sold.
Broncos agree to 1-year deal with Will Montgomery
ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — The Denver Broncos and free agent center Will Montgomery have agreed to terms on a 1year deal. Montgomery is a ninth-year pro who played the last five seasons with the Washington Redskins. He was drafted by Carolina in 2006 out of Virginia Tech when Broncos coach John Fox was Panthers coach. He also played for the Jets from 2007-08. During his career, Montgomery has started 46 games at center, 10 at right guard and seven at left guard. The Broncos are shuffling their offensive line this offseason. They allowed left guard Zane Beadles to leave for Jacksonville in free agency and might move center Manny Ramirez over to make room for Montgomery. They also could move right tackle Orlando Franklin inside.

I wish him well on a speedy recovery.” Nicklaus played 154 straight majors for which he was eligible until he missed the 1998 British Open because of an ailing left hip that he had replaced a year later. Nicklaus rarely had injury problems in compiling 18 professional majors, the record that Woods wants. Woods has been stuck on 14 majors for six years. Woods has had four surgeries on his left knee, and now his biggest concer n is his back. He has been coping with back issues since last summer: a twinge in the final round of the PGA Championship and spasms in the final round of The Barclays that caused him to fall to his knees. Then, they returned with alarming regularity recently in Florida. He withdrew after 13 holes in the final round of the Honda Classic with what he described as lower back pain and spasms. Woods shot the highest final round of his career at Doral a week later when he said his back flared up again in the final round. He skipped the Ar nold Palmer Invitational, where he was the twotime defending champion, to rest his back and do everything possible to

game. Stringing together hits like that came from being patient at the plate, according to A. Sandoval. “I think it’s just a matter of going up to the plate, focusing and trying to be selective instead of swinging at bad pitches. Just swinging at something in the zone and staying off bad pitches.” Roswell nearly matched the feat in the fifth. Portales took the lead back with a run in its half of the fifth, but Olivas, like she had done in the fourth, started the fifth off with a single for Roswell. Another single and a walk fol-

A microdiscectomy is a type of minimally invasive spine surgery to relieve pressure and pain caused by a herniated disc. Operating through a small incision in the lower back, surgeons remove small disc fragments that are pressing against spinal nerves. Recovery can take several weeks and doctors typically advise against bending and twisting the back until patients are completely healed “This is frustrating,” Woods said. “But it’s something my doctors advised me to do for my immediate and long-term health.” His website said repeating the motion of a golf swing can cause problems with a pinched nerve, and that the injury could have become worse if he had continued to play. Woods said he hopes to return to golf this summer, though he could not say when. It’s possible he could at least start chipping and putting in three weeks.

The Nets hadn’t defeated the Rockets at home since March 31, 2003, when they were still playing in East Rutherford, N.J. James Harden scored 26 points for Houston, which lost its second straight following a five-game winning streak. Still without Dwight Howard because of a sore left ankle, the Rockets shot just 38 percent from the field. Harden was 16 of 16 from the freethrow line. Omer Asik had 12 points and a career-high 23 rebounds while starting for Howard, while Jeremy Lin and Chandler Parsons each added 16 points. The Nets held the NBA’s secondhighest scoring team 11 points below its average and finished its non-conference schedule with an 18-12 record. The Nets are 30-12 overall since Jan. 1 and haven’t lost at Barclays Center in more than two months.

B4 Wednesday, April 2, 2014 DEAR ABBY UNIVERSAL PRESS SYNDICATE
DEAR ABBY: I have been with my current boyfriend for a year and a half and I love him dearly. However, I often find myself drawn to other guys who I know are nothing but trouble. It never goes further than simple flirting, but I still feel guilty for doing it when I’m in a relationship. How do I keep myself from temptation? HARD TO RESIST DEAR HARD TO RESIST: Temptation to do what? To
involve yourself with a man who is nothing but trouble? A way to discourage that would be to ask yourself how you would feel if you lost your boyfriend. That would be a high price to pay for acting immaturely. However, if you’re asking how to overcome the IMPULSE, my advice is to have an honest conversation with yourself about why you feel the need. Most of the women (and men) who act this way are constantly trying to prove to themselves that they are attractive. If this could be you, then start working on your self-esteem, because if you don’t, I predict you’ll ruin a good relationship. ##### DEAR ABBY: I’m in my 50s and overweight. I work hard, eat three meals a day and am — more or less —
The Wizard of Id
healthy except for sore feet after work. I’m aware of the medical warnings. Who isn’t? But I have decided to accept myself as I am, relax and be happy. For years I have been hard on myself for not being slim. This is me in my 50s. I don’t expect myself to be slim like I was in my 20s. Now I can smile, breathe easier, have a good time, and finally buy the new clothes I have put off buying until I was thinner. My new spirit is weightless and my new attitude has made my life more meaningful. Any thoughts? LIVING FREE AT LAST
DEAR LIVING FREE: Only this, that we all have choices to make about our health, what is important to us and how we want to live our lives. You have made yours, and at this point it appears to have
been the right one for you. May it ever be thus. #####
DEAR ABBY: My husband has a paralyzing fear of driving over bridges. It interferes with our life together. He is otherwise healthy, but will not see a therapist for this problem. We have been married for 27 years. I am 63 and he is 67. I am very sad that our life is so limited. Any advice? LANDLOCKED IN VIRGINIA DEAR LANDLOCKED: It would be interesting to know how your husband developed this phobia. But because he refuses to do anything about it and you feel restricted, consider traveling with another companion.
KING FEATURES SYNDICATE Dear Heloise: I am a regular reader of your column in the (Rochester, Minn.) PostBulletin. I remember a hint about microwaving bone-in CHICKEN PIECES a short time before grilling to ensure doneness. Could this have come from your column? Would you please research and respond? Sue O. in Minnesota
Today’s Crossword Puzzle
Well, Sue, you may have read it in my column. So, here is the information you requested from the experts this expert relies on. You can microwave chicken first (according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture), but ONLY if you IMMEDIATELY plan to move it to a hot grill to finish cooking. Don’t partially cook meat or chicken when planning to refrigerate and cook later. All of the bacteria may not be killed, and you certainly don’t want to make your family sick! Heloise #####

Dear Heloise: I love cookie jars and have a small collection. I like to actually use them (certain ones for certain holidays, etc.). However, I have found that many jars do not have a sealed lid to keep the cookies truly fresh. I keep the cookies sealed in a plastic, zipper-lock bag inside the jar. You still are using the decorative jar, but are making sure that they stay extra fresh when someone goes to eat them. Jane D. in Ohio
Dear Heloise: I was starting to bake, and noticed that the can of baking powder (which was open) had just expired. I recall reading somewhere that you can do a simple test to tell if baking powder is still active. Can you tell me how to test the baking powder? Sandra M. in Wyoming
Sandra, it is a very simple test. Exact measurements aren’t really important, but take about a cup of hot water and add about a teaspoon of the baking powder in question. If the baking powder is still good, it will immediately start to bubble when it hits the water. Heloise #####
Dear Heloise: I read your column in The (Towanda, Pa.) Daily Review. Every morning I have an omelet for breakfast. Usually I put fresh spinach in it, but when I couldn’t use up the spinach fast enough, I put it in the freezer so it wouldn’t spoil. Once frozen, the spinach crumbles nicely for my omelet while still in the bag. This is much easier than cutting the spinach fresh, and it tastes just as good. Many thanks for all your hints! Cathy in Pennsylvania
Dear Heloise: Before I spray any pan with cooking oil, I open my dishwasher door and place the pan on the inside of the door. I then am able to spray the pan, causing any overspray to be trapped in the dishwasher and washed away with the next load. No messy counter to clean! Gina T. in Kentucky Any good hint to help keep kitchen counters clean is a good one! That spray does seem to go places it should not! Heloise
