Congress returns to do the bare minimum
WASHINGTON (AP) — Congress gets back to work Monday after a two-week vacation, and it’s looking like lawmakers will do what they do best: the bare minimum. Forget immigration, a tax overhaul, stif fer gun checks. They’re all DOA. Raising the minimum wage or restoring lost unemployment benefits? Not going to happen. Forcing government approval of the Keystone XL pipeline? Veto bait.
The only things likely to become law in a Congress bitterly divided between House Republicans and the Democratic-led Senate are those that simply have to pass, such as a measure to avoid a government shutdown. That’s a short, short list. It gets even shorter if you leave off things that can wait until a postelection lame-duck session. Atop the list is a shortterm spending bill to keep the government running

past the Oct. 1 start of the new budget year. Votes on the bill aren’t needed until September. After stumbling into a politically costly partial government shutdown last fall, Republicans won’t let it happen again, especially with an election just around the cor ner. This year’s measure should be no problem. Much more dif ficult, however, is the second main item of must-do business: finding more money
for the Highway Trust Fund to keep road and bridge construction projects afloat. The fund is running critically low on cash. The administration says that could mean a slowdown in construction projects this summer and fall when lawmakers are back home asking voters to return them to Washington for another term. The current highway bill expires at the end of September. “The number of (mustdo) items is small,” said
GOP lobbyist Hazen Marshall of the Nickles Group. “But the degree of difficulty, particularly for the highway bill, is very high.” Top lawmakers and the administration all say they want to pass a multiyear highway and transit funding bill. Most Capitol Hill watchers think a temporary extension of funding is far more likely. That’s still complicated. Lawmakers will have to agree on perhaps $10 billion to $15 billion in fund-

Former Sandia Lab scientists create male home fertility test
ALBUQUERQUE (AP) — Two former Sandia National Laboratories scientists have come up with what they say is a take-home fertility test for men, the Albuquerque Journal reported Friday. Researchers Greg Sommer and Ulrich Schaff have created a portable test kit for gauging a man’s sperm quality that could be available to consumers as early as 2015.
“It allows men to test and track their fertility from the comfort and privacy of their own homes,” Sommer said. “It’s a portable, easy-to-use diagnostic system with the accuracy of a clinical lab test.”
The test would give results within a few minutes, the scientists said. They said technology they helped create during their time at Sandia was the basis for the device. Both participated in a project at a Sandia California lab site where they created a device that quickly detects toxins or other biological threats in emergency first responders. Sommer and Schaff licensed the technology from Sandia. In 2012, they founded their own startup, Sandstone Diagnostics Inc., to develop the fertility-test device, which they called TrakFertility. The home diagnostic

CARLSBAD (AP) — A Carlsbad woman who bur ned down her own house after claiming to hear noises in the attic will serve prison time. The Carlsbad CurrentArgus reported Friday that Valerie Hernandez was sentenced in district court after pleading no contest to a negligent arson charge. The judge gave Hernandez 225 days credit, resulting in a 10-month sentence. According to police, a then-33-year-old Hernandez was arrested in October 2012 for allegedly setting fire to a mattress in her home. Her nandez told police she believed someone was living in the attic and had bugged the house to listen to her conversations. No one was hurt in the blaze. Investigators say her allegation that an unknown man was in her attic proved unfounded.
Man sought in robbery of Albuquerque bank
ALBUQUERQUE (AP) — Federal and local authorities are searching for a man suspected of robbing an Albuquerque bank at gunpoint. The FBI and Albuquerque police say a man entered a branch of US Bank around 10:15 a.m. and pointed a pistol at employees. FBI spokesman Fank Fisher says he ordered two tellers to put money in a
bag and then left with an undisclosed sum. He is described as a Hispanic male, approximately 5-foot-6 with close-cropped hair and a medium build. Witnesses told police he wore sunglasses, a black hoodie, blue sweats and covered the lower half of his face with a blue and white bandanna. Anyone with information is asked to call the FBI at 505-889-1300.
Bernalillo County inmates allege abuse in lawsuit
ALBUQUERQUE (AP) — Bernalillo County officials are denying allegations of excessive force and mistreatment of inmates made in a nearly 20-year-old federal lawsuit. The Albuquerque Journal reports that County Attorney Randy Autio said Friday that authorities discipline inmates with behavioral problems in an appropriate fashion that doesn’t violate their constitutional rights. Autio says the county received the latest motion this week in the civil-rights lawsuit, which was first filed in 1995. Attorneys representing several inmates say in the motion that they were stripped of their belongings and bedding and put in a cell known as “the dungeon.” They also allege pepper spray was used randomly on mentally-challenged inmates. Attorney Peter Cubra says they are asking the court to issue a temporary restraining order to stop the alleged abuse.

guage skills in English, Spanish and Latin, she was tapped to learn Greek and to serve as an interpreter for the NATO base commander. “They sent me to the Berlitz language school, which is one of the best language schools in the world,” Vale said. While she was earning her high school diploma through the mail, Vale was also raising her five children, both in Greece and then in Italy. One benefit of being in Greece was the top-notch education her children received at the base schools. “Our children were raised to be ‘little ambassadors,’ and that is really what they were,” Vale said. Her own education would resume once she and her husband relocated to North Carolina. He was there as an ROTC instructor, and by this point the children were older, Vale said. “Martin Luther King Jr. will always be a hero to me,” she said. “He taught that everyone should be educated, not just black people, but women, too.” Up until that point, her whole life had revolved around her husband’s career and raising her children, but she soon took the opportunity to attend North Carolina State Uni-
versity. Located in North Carolina’s famed research triangle, NCSU is one of the unsung powerhouses the region, Vale said. “Most people don’t know it, but NCSU is the brain trust of the Triangle.” After more than 19 years, Vale’s first husband left her and she found herself alone and fending for herself while finishing her education at NCSU. She started a consulting business, which led to work in international business and an executive position in Florida. But after years of traveling around the world and dealing in the world of high finance, Vale came home to Roswell to care for her aging mother. Back in Roswell, Vale started teaching English as Second Language a through her consulting firm, and she says ESL is not being taught properly in public schools these days. “I still have my K-12 certification, and if the Roswell Independent School District calls me, I’ll be glad to go show them what they are doing wrong,” she said with a laugh. In Roswell, she also met her second husband, Silverio Vale, who owns Vale’s Body Shop. She has started a cam-
paign to recognize the contribution of the Hispanic community to Goddard’s research in Roswell, and she wants to honor the men who helped Goddard as well as the famous professor when the city celebrates “Aiming For The Stars” in October. She also spends much of her time at First Baptist Church, where she has found her spiritual center. “At First Baptist Church, we worship God and study the Bible,” Vale said. “We also share the Gospel when we can.”
“Patient safety is a top priority at Lovelace Westside Hospital,” said hospital CEO Farron Sneed. “We have daily safety huddles that involve all the departments, and our staf f members ar e an integral part of this process.”

Stevens proposes new constitutional amendments
Honestly, unless you are a big government liberal, how many people think the federal government should have more power than it already exercises over its citizens? Former Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens, 94, thinks the Constitution needs at least six amendments in order to bring the country more in line with what he believes is good for us. He outlines them in his new book, “Six Amendments: How and Why We Should Change the Constitution.” It is a revealing look into liberal thinking and the ideological opposite of radio talk show host Mark Levin’s book, “The Liberty Amendments: Restoring the American Republic.” More about that in a moment. Stevens elaborated on his book in an interview with USA Today. One of his priorities would be to change the Second Amendment. As he writes in his book, “...the Second Amendment, which was adopted to protect the states from federal interference with their power to ensure that their militias were “well regulated,” has given federal judges the ultimate power to determine the validity of state regulations of both civilian and militia-related uses of arms. That anomalous result can be avoided by adding five words to the text of the Second Amendment to make it unambiguously conform to the original intent of its draftsmen.
THOMAS SYNDICATED COLUMNIST
As so amended, it would read: ‘A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms WHEN SERVING IN THE MILITIA shall not be infringed.’” I doubt Stevens’ update would get much traction in Congress. The Second Amendment was written and ratified precisely because the Founders had personal experience with how a tyrannical government can restrict, even eliminate, liberty if its citizens are not armed for their own and liberty’s defense. Stevens’ second proposal would change the Eighth Amendment’s prohibition against cruel and unusual punishment to include the death penalty, which he has long opposed. The chances of that passing Congress are about the same as his first proposal. He thinks the First Amendment’s free speech clause does not prohibit government
Roswell Daily Record
from restricting the amount of money spent on political campaigns, contrary to recent majority opinions by the current Supreme Court. In the Court’s 1992 verdict on Planned Parenthood vs. Casey, Stevens wrote, “The social costs of overruling (Roe) at this late date would be enormous. Roe is an integral part of a correct understanding of both the concept of liberty and the basic equality of men and women.” “Social costs” was an argument used to oppose British slave traders and Southern emancipation. Only the morally obtuse would argue that the slaughter of 55 million American babies (and counting) would somehow fit the Founders’ understanding of liberty and equality. Stevens’ moral compass is out of whack when he favors preserving the lives of convicted murderers, but no protection for the unbor n, even after viability up to the moment of birth. Mark Levin’s book is far more in line with the Founder’s thinking than is Stevens’ approach to the Constitution. Unlike the Founders, Stevens apparently has never seen an area where government should not stick its nose. Levin wants to place the federal government back within its constitutional boundaries by using a provision in Article 5 that
allows two-thirds of state legislatures to call a constitutional convention. His proposal would strictly limit what delegates could do so as to avoid a runaway convention that could damage the Constitution. Levin believes a state-called constitutional convention is the only way to stop the “blob” of the federal government, which, like a B-movie monster, continues to “eat” away at our freedoms and at ever-increasing costs. Most of Levin’s proposed reform amendments return decision-making authority, in key respects, to the state legislatures, limit the power of the Washington ruling class through term limits and state overrides and breathe new life into free-market capitalism and private property rights. This is what we need. Not more of Stevens’ liberal thinking, which unfortunately, his successor, Elena Kagan, seems to replicate. It is another reminder, if one is needed, that elections matter. This November, the balance of power on the Court, the future of the Constitution and possibly the country may be at stake.

A mental health fix that merits a chance
After every mass shooting, every inexplicable attack by one stranger on another, and every time a mentally ill person dies at the hands of law enforcement, we are reminded that we are in the midst of a nationwide mental health crisis. The federal Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration reports that one in five families is dealing with mental illness. More than half of prison inmates are mentally ill, as are half of those fatally shot by police, according to the Bureau of Justice. But we can do something about it. Laura’s Law, which passed in California in 2002, authorizes court-ordered, assisted outpatient treatment for mentally ill individuals with a history of arrests, violence, and mental health hospitalizations that failed to solve the problem. And it works. The law is named for Laura Wilcox, a 19year-old clinic worker shot to death in 2001 when a mentally ill man resisted treatment and went on a rampage. Laura’s Law does have a flaw; California counties have to voluntarily opt in. Until just recently, only one of the 58 counties did. Nevada County implemented the law as part of a legal settlement, but has since seen jail sentences reduced 65 percent, hospitalization reduced 46 percent, homelessness reduced 61 percent, and emergency responses reduced 44 percent, according to a report mandated by the bill. When it was just a victim’s rights issue, California governments didn’t care enough to implement the law. In the aftermath of the death of Kelly Thomas after a confrontation with Fullerton police, activists are making the argument that this is also a desperately needed, potentially life-saving intervention for the mentally ill themselves. In fact, the Orange County Board of Supervisors is scheduled to consider Laura’s Law at its May 13 meeting. The seriously mentally ill, especially those who suffer from schizophrenia and paranoia, frequently view treatment of any kind with great suspicion. Voluntary treatment programs with no force of law behind them are never going to help these individuals, and the parents and family members of the disturbed are left with nowhere to turn. Dustin Kinnear, a transient suspected of stabbing a young woman to death on Hollywood Boulevard, for example, had been arrested at least 46 times prior to the attack, including seven arrests for assault with a deadly weapon. He reportedly was bipolar, paranoid, schizophrenic and suffered from epilepsy. His mother, a police detective, told the Los Angeles Times last summer that although she tried desperately to intervene in his obvious downward spiral, “I always knew I would get a call about him being dead or doing something awful.” Aurora, Colo., theater shooting suspect James Holmes frightened his psychiatrist so badly that she reported him as an imminent danger a month before the rampage in which 12 people were killed and 70 more injured, according to reports. These incidents, and many others, have resulted in a flurry of new gun laws, nationally, but comparatively few changes to our grievously broken mental health system. And they may have been prevented by the kind of assisted outpatient treatment intervention made easier under Laura’s Law. So why are counties resisting implementation? Cost is a factor, as local governments cut services during years of fiscal crisis. But California has recently clarified rules that allow funds from Proposition 63, the Mental Services Health Act, to be used. Laura’s Law can also be an enormously important cost-saving measure, particularly at hospitals, jails, and for emergency services. And it would reduce the number of lawsuits over police encounters with the mentally ill. The Kelly Thomas case cost Fullerton and Orange County taxpayers huge amounts to both defend and prosecute, and untold further costs from civil litigation are inevitable. The law also faces vehement opposition. Yolo County has launched a pilot program, and counties — including Los Angeles and Orange — that are looking into Laura’s Law are threat-

Privacy, please: Computers not private
Scarlett Johansson left nude photos of herself on her computer. A hacker grabbed them and sent them to gossip websites. A Pennsylvania high school issued laptop computers to students and then remotely activated the laptops’ cameras to watch the students when they were away from school. On my computer, a program called Disconnect reveals that my favorite websites spy on me and track what I like to read, what I browse, what I buy. Privacy is almost a thing of the past. As I explain on my show this week, I follow the advice of “experts.” I buy anti-virus software (today a virus is more likely to steal your credit card and bank info than harm your computer). I sometimes change passwords. But someone still might steal my data. I’m told I should be upset about this. But I’m not. Already, I voluntarily give up privacy. Amazon has my credit card info. Facebook, Google, Reason.org, Cato.org etc., know my preferences. I resent that websites demand I click “agree” to say
STOSSEL SYNDICATED COLUMNIST
that I’ve read their complex terms and conditions. (I click “agree,” but no one reads them.) By comparison, the National Security Agency’s data mining seems relatively benign. They just gather patterns of phone numbers. They say they don’t listen to my calls or know my name. Do we trust them? But the distinction we care about shouldn’t be whether they know my name. The important dif ference is whether what you do is voluntary. You can decide whether to use Facebook or let private sites install cookies to track your info. Johansson didn’t give that hacker permission to steal her photos. And I didn’t give the NSA — not to mention the IRS, FBI, etc. — permission to access my information.
Sometimes people say that sharing infor mation with Amazon or Facebook is just as involuntary, but the truth is that we’re just too lazy to check their privacy policies. And there’s a good, rational reason we don’t worry so much about companies: Even if they get ahold of my embarrassing information, all they can do with it is try to sell us things. Amazon’s not going to raid your home with a SWAT team the way government might if it gets the wrong impression from your emails. Facebook can’t forcibly take my money or put me in jail. Because of the Internet, I changed my behavior years ago. I try not to email anything too embarrassing. I’m aware that when I surf the Web, someone might watch. And if you find out what I like to do on the weekend, what medications I take or that I have seen a psychotherapist, so what? I’m not ashamed. Losing some privacy is a price I’ll pay for progress. But here’s the thing: With all the private, voluntary transactions, I can at least decide whether the risk is
worth it. I don’t get to make that calculation when government decides it wants to know more about me. The National Highway Traffic Safety Agency wants black box recorders to be mandatory in all cars. The bureaucrats say they need to keep track of how we drive and where we go — but not to spy on us, they say.
They promise they won’t tell anyone that you see a psychologist or go to Alcoholics Anonymous meetings. They just want your travel pattern in order to know where to build the next highway, add mass transit and so on. And if you are in an accident, the black box may reveal important information about who is at fault. Maybe the other guy was speeding. Now the lawyers will have more information. And don’t we trust the government? No, not always. But we don’t place an infinite value on privacy. Sometimes we’re willing to give up some of it — to friends, doc-

Healthy diet reduces heart disease risk by over 70 percent
DEAR DOCTOR K: What are the basic tenets of a hearthealthy diet? DEAR READER: I once had a patient who had a history of heart disease in his family. When he first came to see me, he was in his late 20s. He knew that having heart disease in his family put him at higher risk for it later in life. He told me he had decided to do something to protect himself: He had consulted a cardiologist. As for his lifestyle, he had done nothing. Zip. Nada. Hadn’t changed his diet and never exercised. Of course he had heard (“ad nauseam,” he said) advice from his doctor and from people (like me) who
ASK DR. K UNITED MEDIA SYNDICATE
write about a healthy lifestyle. “I first heard that stuff from my kindergarten teacher,” he said, “and I’ve been hearing it ever since.” But he thought it was all sanctimonious preaching. It’s not sanctimonious preaching; it’s solid science.
There are thousands of studies, involving hundreds of thousands of people, whose diets and health histories have been catalogued over (collectively) millions of years. What do those studies say? A heart-healthy diet may reduce your risk of a heart attack by 73 percent compared to a typical American diet of meat, cheese and highfat desserts. What do I mean by “heart-healthy diet”? Here are the basics: — WATCH YOUR FATS. Eliminate trans fats from your diet. Limit saturated fat. — CHOOSE WHOLE GRAINS. Replace refined carbohydrates (such as white
bread and white rice) with whole-grain varieties. — EAT MEAT SPARINGLY. Relegate meat to a minor part of your diet. Avoid fatty cuts of beef, pork and lamb. Instead, choose lean meats, or substitute fish or skinless whitemeat poultry. — OPT FOR LOW-FAT DAIR Y PRODUCTS. Avoid dairy foods that contain whole milk or cream. — CHOOSE HEAL THY COOKING OILS. Use liquid cooking oils rather than butter or margarine. Good choices include canola, sunflower, safflower, corn, soybean, olive

Letting the outside control the inside OPINION II
Roswell Daily Record
Right or wrong, good or bad, the human nature inside each of us created measuring sticks that we regularly apply to our lives. We have benchmarks or points of references that we use when we deter mine core concepts in our lives such as our self worth or our view of the world. Based upon what tests each of us uses, we may live an hour or a day in a good mood because we feel good about ourselves. Or we may live an hour or a day depressed because we don’t feel good about who we are. The hour or day of feeling depressed could extend into a week, a season, or a lifetime. I like the concept “what recording are you listening to in your head?” The concept is that if you don’t like your world, change what is playing in your mind and you will change your world. I live in this world just as each of you do, so I fight the same battles you do. We each choose our attitude. Choosing a good attitude is more difficult for some than others, but is at the heart and soul of each of us. One day, I was scrolling through some postings on my computer when I came upon a letter by an unknown author that I stopped and read. When you read a posting from the internet, you never know what is legitimate and what

is not, but regardless of the unknown origin of the writing, the letter has a strong message that is worth repeating. The posting claimed “A psychologist goes to Target and after visiting the makeup aisle, he decides to write this letter to his young daughter.” It goes as follows: “Dear Little One, “As I write this, I’m sitting in the makeup aisle of our local Target store. A friend recently texted me from a different makeup aisle and told me it felt like one of the most oppressive places in the world. I wanted to find out what he meant: “And now I’m sitting here, I’m beginning to agree with him. Words have power, and the words on display in this aisle have a deep power. Words and phrases like: affordably gorgeous, infallible, flawless finish, brilliant strength, liquid power, go nude, age defying, instant age rewind, choose your dream, nearly naked, and natural beauty. “When you have a daugh-

(On my website, AskDoctorK.com, I’ve put a table listing the amount of cholesterol in several common foods.) — EAT MORE FIBER. Emphasize foods that are low in calories and high in fiber, such as fruits and vegetables, whole-grain products and legumes (dried beans and peas). Eat more water-soluble fiber, such as that found in oat bran and fruits. — GO FOR NUTS. Nuts are associated with a lower risk of heart disease. But they have lots of calories, so watch your portions. — ADD FISH TO YOUR DIET. Oily fish such as mackerel and salmon contain

But sitting in this store aisle, you also begin to realize most people won’t see it that way. They’ll see her as a pretty face and a body to enjoy. And they’ll tell her she has to look a certain way to have any worth or any influence. “But words do have power and maybe, just maybe, the words of a father can begin to compete with the words of the world. Maybe a father’s words can deliver his daughter through the gauntlet of the institutionalized shame and into a deep, unshakeable sense of her own worthiness and beauty. “A father’s words aren’t different words, but they are words with a radically different meaning: “Brilliant strength: May your strength be not in your finger nails, but in your heart. May you discern in your center who you are, and then may you fearfully but tenaciously live it out in the world. “Choose your dream: But not from a department store shelf. From the still quiet place within you. A real dream has been planted there. Discover what you want to do in the world. And when you have chosen, may you faithfully pursue it,

High-salt diets increase your risk of high blood pressure, a major risk factor for cardiovascular disease. — DRINK ALCOHOL ONLY IN MODERATION. That means no more than one drink a day for women, and one or two drinks a day for men. If you want to reduce your risk of heart disease by over 70 percent, this is how to do it.

As the father wrote, the tests from the world can mislead a young girl and can mislead any of us.

Tornadoes could affect us in Southeastern New Mexico the most property damage in one year in recent reporting history. In 2011, there were 1,625 confirmed U.S. tor nadoes plus 93 other reports yet undetermined. The average per year is just over 1000. There were 551 fatalities in that one year, the most since 1950, a sixty-two year time frame. If you need a reminder of that horror, consider the devastation of Joplin, Missouri, which occurred on May 22, 2011 and claimed 158 lives!
STEVE WOLFE ROSWELL SAFE COALITION Every year about now, someone will send me a safety article having to do with tornadoes. I always struggle with whether I should write about something of fairly low risk to us. The Chaves County Hazard Mitigation Plan places tornadoes among area hazards, but not necessarily at the top of the list. In fact, New Mexico is very low nationally in tornado incidents per annum. Check out this picture, taken on Oct. 21, 2010, well beyond the â€œtornado season,â€? which is usually considered to begin in
Roswell Daily Record
March and end in September. This is a picture taken northeast of Roswell. One look helped me decide if tornadoes are a safety item for my little column. You bet they are! The year 2011 will long
be remembered as one of the most destructive and deadly tornado seasons to impact the nation. In seven outbreaks of tornado activity and severe weather, there were costs of some 28 billion dollars, representing
This year â€” to date at least â€” is an altogether different story, thank God. So far, it is the slowest start to tor nado season in over sixty years, and itâ€™s fatalityfree! The National Weather Serviceâ€™s Storm Prediction Center (SPC) classifies the severity of tor nadoes through the â€œEnhanced Fujitaâ€? system (EF-0 through EF-5) based on the damage done, and not so much a factor of wind speed. So far in 2014, there have been only 20
twisters of EF-1 or stronger, just over 10 percent of the nor mal EF-1 occurrences by this time of the year. So far, there have been none considered to be EF-3 or higher.
If you and your family find yourselves in what appears be a tornado situation, experts are in agreement that planning ahead is key to this or any disaster. Decide now what you will do to take shelter â€” a local community shelter, your own underground storm shelter (not many of those in Roswell, I know), or a â€œsafe roomâ€? in your home. If you have a basement, go there and crouch down under the stairs. You may need to get into an interior closet or bathroom near the center of the building. Pull your knees up under you and use a blanket, sleeping bag or mattress to protect yourself from flying debris. Stay away from windows, outside doors, and walls. If you have heard that you should open windows â€”
donâ€™t. Doing so will not save the house and may make things worse. If you are driving, safely park your car, get away from it, and lie flat in a low place.
Importantly, and you have heard this from me before, create an emergency kit which includes first aid supplies, an NOAA all-hazard radio, flashlight and batteries, some cash and important family documents. I certainly recommend that you look on the internet for a good list of contents and build a kit which works for your particular family.
Tornado Season 2014 is far from over, and we hope it remains as calm as it has been so far. However, the instances of â€œpolar vortexâ€? which have occurred this year may have played a part in lessening tornado activity. One blogger I read predicts that the season may spike up drastically in May, when a steady stream of warm weather arrives. Make sure your family has had the discussion.

1 IN 3 WHO OWN EXOTIC ANIMALS IN OHIO LACKS PERMIT
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — About one in three owners of exotic animals still lacks a permit more than three months after a state law requiring it went into effect, according to records obtained from the Ohio Department of Agriculture. The permits are among the last pieces of the state’s crackdown on private ownership following the 2011 release of dozens of wild animals by a suicidal owner at his eastern Ohio farm in Zanesville. Fearing for public safety, authorities hunted down and killed most of the animals, including black bears, Bengal tigers and African lions. Owners in Ohio were required to obtain the state permits by Jan. 1 of this year. The Agriculture Department had issued 51 permits as of Friday after receiving 82 applications, according to state data obtained by The Associated Press through a public records request. Per mit applications for 23 owners remain unresolved. Eight
other applications were dropped either because the animals died, were relinquished to the state or were sent elsewhere. State of ficials say the delay in issuing permits comes as owners try to meet the law’s caging standards and other requirements. Some have not yet upgraded their facilities. Others have not implanted their animals with a microchip so they can be identified if they escape or get loose. “People are in different stages of coming into compliance,” David Daniels, the director of the state’s Agriculture Department, said in an AP interview. Several of the unpermitted owners have a menagerie of critters. One has 96 animals, including 32 tigers and 28 lions. Another lists two white Bengal tigers, a pair of American alligators and three Syrian brown bears among the 21 animals on the property. Daniels said the Agriculture Department is trying
to work with those who want to comply with the law.
“We would like to have all of them done, but we’re trying to be careful, we’re trying to be thorough,” he said. “I think that we’ve tried to live within the spirit of the law and make sure that everybody knows that they’ve got a certain amount of time to be in compliance.” In order to obtain a permit, owners must pass a background check, pay fees, obtain liability insurance or surety bonds and show they can properly contain and care for the animal. Signs must be posted on their premises to alert people there are dangerous wild animals there. The owner’s property also must be no smaller than 1 acre, though Daniels has waived that requirement seven times — mainly for owners of smaller animals that are typically kept indoors.

Tornadoes damage homes, injure a dozen A8 Sunday, April 27, 2014

Alleged Clinton shoe thrower arraigned LAS VEGAS (AP) — A Phoenix woman accused of throwing a shoe at Hillary Rodham Clinton during a speech in Las Vegas remains in federal custody after pleading not guilty to two criminal charges. Alison Er nst, 36, entered the pleas to misdemeanor counts of trespassing and violence against a person during her arraignment late Wednesday in U.S. District Court in Las Vegas. U.S. Magistrate Judge Cam Ferenbach then granted the government’s request to keep Ernst in federal custody, saying she was a flight risk and danger to the community. She is being held at a jail operated by a federal contractor in Pahrump, 63 miles west of Las Vegas. Ferenbach raised concerns about Ernst’s residency status and mental health condition, Natalie Collins, a spokeswoman for the U.S. Attorney’s of fice in Nevada, told The Associated Press. The judge appointed a federal public defender to represent her and set a June 25 trial date before U.S. Magistrate Peggy Leen. Ernst’s public defender, William Carrico, did not immediately respond to requests for comment Friday.
plaint, Clinton was speaking at an April 10 conference at the Mandalay Bay resort when Ernst walked up to the stage area and threw a soccer shoe at Clinton. The shoe passed near Clinton’s head, causing her to flinch and duck, but it did not strike her. Clinton cracked a couple of jokes before resuming her talk.
This image provided by the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department shows Alison Ernst, who was arrested April 10, in connection with an incident involving throwing a shoe at Former Secretary of State and Former First Lady Hillary Clinton.
Ferenbach also directed the U.S. Probation Office to prepare a report detailing Ernst’s criminal history, if any. Federal authorities have not disclosed a motive in the case yet. According to the criminal com-
TRAUMA WARNINGS MOVE FROM INTERNET TO IVORY TOWER
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — It seemed like a modest proposal, or so thought Bailey Loverin, a literature major at the University of California, Santa Barbara: What if professors were prodded to give students a written or oral heads-up before covering graphic material that could cause flashbacks in those who had been sexually assaulted, survived war or suffered other traumas? The idea proved popular
with Loverin’s classmates. Student government leaders at UCSB endorsed it. Faculty at other schools, editorial writers and online pundits had a dif ferent reaction, calling it “silly,” “antithetical to college life” and reflective of “a wider cultural hypersensitivity to harm.” The uproar over her “Resolution to Mandate Warnings for T riggering Content in Academic Settings” has called public
Ernst wasn’t a credentialed conference attendee and should not have been in the ballroom, authorities said. She somehow got past people checking tickets at the entrance, they said, and she was arrested immediately after the shoe was tossed. Clinton, the former secretary of state, first lady and Democratic senator from New York, has been traveling the country giving paid speeches to industry organizations and Democratic Party groups. She has said she’s seriously considering a presidential bid.
If Ernst is convicted of both federal charges, she could face up to two years in federal prison and the possibility that federal authorities would be able to monitor her movements under terms of supervised release.

Pack said the stor m appeared to be about 300 yards wide and was on the ground for 10 miles. He said the line of damage started in the west-northwest portion of the county and traveled to the northeast.

South African democracy marks 20th anniversary JOHANNESBURG (AP) — “How can you describe falling in love?” That is how retired archbishop Desmond Tutu this week recalled voting in South Africa’s first allrace elections on April 27, 1994, an exultant moment when the nation’s majority blacks and other oppressed groups broke the shackles of white rule. But as South Africa marks the 20th anniversary of multiracial democracy today, the achievements and soaring expectations of what was dubbed a “rainbow nation” have been tempered by a different inequality — the yawning gulf between rich and poor. This uneven narrative will shape elections on May 7 likely to see the ruling African National Congress — which led the fight against apartheid and has dominated politics since its demise — retur n to power with a smaller majority, reflecting a growing discontent with the party. One election candidate is Julius Malema, the expelled head of the ANC’s youth league and now leader of an upstart party that wants to redistribute wealth. Malema, who wears a red beret on the campaign trail, has criticized the government as elitist, saying real freedom will only come when the poor own a fair share of the land. Despite notable gaps in service, South Africa has delivered housing, water

and electricity to millions since 1994 and boasts a widely admired constitution and an active civil society, but struggles with high unemployment, one of the world’s highest rates of violent crime and is still working through issues of race and identity.
“It’s nice to celebrate that we are here,” said Gundo Mmbi, a student at the University of the Witwatersrand in Johannesburg. But she said the 20th anniversary of democracy is also a time to reflect on the need for change in South Africa, citing “really crazy” corruption and a lack of opportunity for the poor. “It’s not just about your color anymore,” she said “Discrimination has gone beyond.”
South African officials will highlight gains of the last 20 years today at the Union Buildings, a government complex in Pretoria that was once the seat of white power. The government is launching a slick television ad that depicts neatly stacked shipping containers on a pier to symbolize South Africa’s international trade, housing developments, gleaming infrastructure such as the high-speed Gautrain transit system, and SKA, an international project to build a radio telescope, based in South Africa and Australia, that will observe the sky.
5 NATO troops killed in Afghan helicopter crash
KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) — A British helicopter crashed in southern Afghanistan on Saturday, killing five NATO troops in the single deadliest day this year for foreign forces as they prepare to withdraw from the country, officials said. The British defense ministry confirmed that all five of the dead were British. Maj. Gen. Richard Felton, commander of the Joint Helicopter Command, said the crash appeared to be “a tragic accident.” In Kabul, an Afghan university official identified two Americans killed by a local policeman at a hospital in the capital earlier this week. The shooting was the latest by a member of Afghanistan’s security forces against those they are supposed to protect. The cause of the helicopter crash was not immediately known. Kandahar provincial police spokesman Zia Durrani said the aircraft went down in the province’s Takhta Pul district in the southeast, about 50 kilometers (31 miles) from the Pakistani border. The coalition said it was investigating the circumstances of the crash but said it had no reports of enemy activity in the area. Saturday’s crash was one of the deadliest air accidents involving Britain’s forces in Afghanistan. In September 2006, a Nimrod surveillance aircraft exploded in mid-air while supporting NATO ground operations near Kandahar, killing all 14 servicemen on board. A Taliban spokesman claimed in a text message to journalists Saturday that the insurgents shot down the helicopter. “Today, the mujahedeen hit the foreign forces’ helicopter with a rocket, and 12 soldiers on board were killed,” spokesman Qari Yousef Ahmadi said. The insurgents frequently exaggerate death tolls in their attacks and falsely have claimed responsibility for incidents before. The last deadliest day for coalition forces was Dec. 17, 2013, when a helicopter crash killed six U.S. service members.

Sanctions loom as observers held in east Ukraine
SLOVYANSK, Ukraine (AP) — As Wester n gover nments vowed to impose more sanctions against Russia and its supporters in eastern Ukraine, a group of foreign military observers remained in captivity Saturday accused of being NATO spies by a pro-Russian insurgency. The German-led, eight-member team was traveling under the auspices of the Organization of Security and Cooperation in Europe when they were detained Friday. Vyacheslav Ponomarev, the selfproclaimed “people’s mayor” of Slovyansk, described the detained observers as “captives” and said that they were officers from NATO member states. “As we found maps on them containing information about the location of our checkpoints, we get the impression that they are officers carrying out a certain spying mission,” Ponomarev said, adding they could be released in exchange for jailed pro-Russian activists. Outside Slovyansk, a city about 150 kilometers (90 miles) west of Russia, Ukraine government forces continued operations to form a security cordon as it attempts to quell unrest threatening to derail the planned May 25 presidential elec-
tion. The U.S. and other nations in the Group of Seven said in a joint statement released Friday night by the White House that they plan to impose additional economic sanctions on Russia in response to its actions in Ukraine. The West has accused Russia of using covert forces to encourage unrest in Ukraine and says Moscow has done nothing to pressure pro-Russian militias to free police stations and government buildings in at least 10 cities across the region. Condemning Russia’s earlier annexation of Ukraine’s Crimea Peninsula, the G-7 said: “We will now follow through on the full legal and practical consequences of this illegal annexation, including but not limited to the economic, trade and financial areas.” U.S. Vice President Joe Biden tried to keep building support for sanctions during phone calls Saturday to the prime ministers of Hungary and the Czech Republic. The European Union is also planning more sanctions, and ambassadors from the bloc’s 28 member nations will meet Monday in Brussels to add to the list of Russian officials and pro-Russian leaders in
Ukraine that have been sanctioned with asset freezes and a travel ban. The foreign military observer team detained by pro-Russian forces was made up of three German soldiers, a German translator and one soldier each from Czech Republic, Poland, Sweden and Denmark. Germany’s Defense Ministry said the team also included five Ukrainians. Tim Guldimann, the OSCE’s special envoy for Ukraine, told German public radio WDR on Saturday that “efforts are being made to solve this issue.” He declined to elaborate. German Foreign Minister FrankWalter Steinmeier called Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov late Friday to press for the release of the observers. In a statement released Saturday, Russia’s Foreign Ministry said it was taking “all measures to resolve the situation,” but blamed the authorities in Kiev for failing to secure the safety of the team. “The security of the inspectors is wholly entrusted to the host party,” the statement said. “Hence it would be logical to expect the current authorities in Kiev to resolve preliminary questions of the location, actions, and safety of the instructors.”

ARIES (March 21-April 19) You’ll smile a lot, as if you have a secret you have not yet shared. Others will try to find out what is going on as they discover that your lips are sealed on this topic. Be spontaneous when making a purchase. Tonight: You are not ready to end the weekend. This Week: Hold on tight to your wallet. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) Try as you may, no one seems to be letting the cat out of the bag. The smart move would be to ignore the situation, as someone is likely to spill the beans. Make plans for yourself right now. You need some muchneeded downtime. Tonight: Stay in and watch a movie. This Week: Stay level-headed, if possible, as no one around you seems stable. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) You seem to have a secret or something you would prefer not to share. You seem to beam with this information, which could trigger a friend’s curiosity. Go off and watch a game, but do not push too hard. Fatigue could be high. Tonight: Forget the idea of “early to bed.” This Week: Make a doctor’s appointment. CANCER (June 21-July 22) If you are not going on a mini day excursion, plan on going on one very soon. A change of pace always grounds you and helps you gain a new perspective. Whatever you do, you’ll do it intensely. Tonight: Start thinking “Monday.” This Week: A friend could do a reversal. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Deal with one person at a time. You might be easily distracted, as a phone call or news from a distance could put you on high alert. A change seems to be flying your way. Are you ready for some diversity in the near future? Tonight: Catch up on a favorite show. This Week: Tension seems to build at work and at home. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) You might want to seriously consider a partner’s request.

get some exercise, whether it is mental or physical, could reduce stress. Tonight: Enjoy a leisurely dinner. This Week: Reach out to a loved one. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) Just let others do their thing. Decide when you would like to join in and when you would prefer to do something else. You often give in for the sake of keeping the peace, which is one of the reasons why your anger is so close to the surface, Tonight: Enjoy a fun night out. This Week: Show concern for a partner or loved one who could be fed up. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) You might be hard-pressed to follow through on a project and also get to a game on time. Know that you will manage to do both, if you want to. However, don’t hesitate to adjust your plans. You need to let go of stress. Tonight: Take the dog for a walk. This Week: What you want could change radically once you get it. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) Let your imagination color your plans. You will have a great time, as will others. Curb any frustration you have toward a loved one who seem to playing out a mock war. Do not feed this person’s hostilities. Tonight: So what if tomorrow is Monday? This Week: Plan on taking off for a few days. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Stay close to home and handle a personal matter. An older parent or relative could seem out of sorts. Asking this person what is wrong might be a mistake. Invite him or her along if you have plans, but do not create more pressure. Tonight: Order in. Make it easy. This Week: Let your creativity point to a new path. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
Dutch party down at ‘King’s Day’
AMSTERDAM (AP) — The Dutch are donning crazy orange-colored outfits and celebrating their first ever “King’s Day” — a national holiday held in honor of the Netherlands’ newly installed monarch, King Willem Alexander. The festival began Friday evening for hard core partiers and climaxes Sat-
urday, with open-air markets and concerts around the country. More than a million people are expected to attend in Amsterdam alone. King’s Day replaces the traditional “Queens’ Day” festival held this time of year, and not much else will change. It’s been renamed because Willem
Alexander, who assumed the throne last year, is the first male monarch from the Netherlands’ ruling House of Orange in living memory. The king and his wife Queen Maxima are visiting the scenic village of De Rijp, 36 kilometers (22 miles) north of Amsterdam.

Villareal, Rockets take two from Artesia Days left to register
Sunday, April 27, 2014
KEVIN J. KELLER RECORD SPORTS EDITOR
When Cal Villareal toes the rubber, it would be easy to think he’s a senior who is winding down his prep baseball career before he heads off to play collegiately. It’s hard to fathom for most that he’s just a freshman, mostly because he doesn’t play anything like a freshman. He looked like a poised veteran on Saturday afternoon. The frosh pitched six strong innings on the bump and delivered an RBI single at the dish, leading Goddard to a 5-2 victory over Artesia in the first game of a District 4-4A doubleheader at The Launch Pad. “He threw well and showed a little maturity out there today,” Rocket coach Alan Edmonson said about Villareal’s performance. “You forget sometimes that he’s still a freshman. He’s still a youngster, but he showed some maturity by working out of

some big jams. “And showed some confidence in his defense. They made some plays behind him.” Working out of jams was Villareal’s forte on this day. He allowed at least two Bulldogs to reach in each of his first five innings on the mound, but gave up only two runs during that stretch as Artesia stranded 10. Artesia struck for a run in the second thanks to an RBI single by Tristan Whitmire, but Villareal struck out Grady Frost with the bases loaded to prevent any more damage. See TWO, Page B3

Colts stay Heat blow past Bobcats for 3-0 series lead in title hunt NBA PLAYOFFS
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — LeBron James stripped the ball at midcourt, raced the length of the floor and lifted off for a powerful one-handed dunk. Bobcats owner Michael Jordan, seated on the Charlotte bench, could only look on helplessly. James was taking over and the Miami Heat, well, they were starting to look like the Miami Heat of the past two seasons. Unlike the first two games of the series, James made sure this game wouldn’t be close. James had 30 points and 10 rebounds, and the Heat easily defeated the Bobcats 98-85 Saturday night to take a 3-0 lead in the Eastern Conference first round. Dwyane Wade added 17 points for the Heat, who can close out the best-of-seven series Monday night. “We were locked in on what needs to be done and our keys to win this game,” James said. James went 10 of 18 from the field and pushed his record to 18-0 against the Bobcats since joining the Heat in 2010. Miami has won 19 straight overall against Charlotte. Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said his players took a “professional approach”

Carter’s buzzer beater lifts Mavs
DALLAS (AP) — Vince Carter knew right away the exact date of the last time he had a buzzer-beating try in a playof f game — 13 years ago. It’s seared in the memory of the 16-year veteran because he missed that one. He was on target Saturday. Carter hit a double-pump 3-pointer at the buzzer to give the Dallas Mavericks a 109-108 victory in Game 3 and a first-round series lead over the top-seeded San Antonio Spurs. With 1.7 seconds left, Carter took an inbound pass from Jose Calderon in
the left cor ner. After a quick pump fake got Manu Ginobili in the air — moments after the Argentine guard had given the Spurs the lead — Carter released the ball just in time. He strutted stone-faced toward Dirk Nowitzki, who was waving his arms wildly as he jumped on Carter. Mavericks owner Mark Cuban joined the celebration on the court before the automatic review confirmed the obvious: The shot was good. And it’s one Carter said he practiced. “May 20th, Game 7,” said

NMMI set up a de facto district title game by sweeping a pair from nearby rival Dexter at Joe Bauman Stadium on Saturday afternoon. The Colts won Game 1 11-4 and triumphed in Game 2 12-8.

In Game 1 against the Demons, NMMI cruised to a lopsided win behind strong pitching from Thomas Haley and an offensive onslaught in the first four innings. The Colts (14-10, 5-3) recorded all 11 of their runs over the first four innings, collecting 11 hits during that span. They scored three times in the first, five times in the second and thrice in the fourth. Dexter saw its 2-0 first-inning lead disappear and recorded just two hits over the final six innings. Thomas Haley earned the victory for NMMI after giving up three runs on two hits and striking out 12. Over the fourth, fifth and sixth innings, he had nine strikeouts. Haden Maloney finished the game 3 for 4 with two runs. Daniel Zaragoza and Blade Allen, who pitched the seventh in relief of Haley, each scored three times. Dominic Lomeli took the loss for Dexter.

College basketball Former Michigan F Horford transferring to Florida
GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Former Michigan forward Jon Horford is transferring to Florida for his final year of college eligibility. Horford’s older brother, Al, confirmed the decision to The Associated Press before Saturday’s NBA playoff game between the Atlanta Hawks and the Indiana Pacers. Al Horford spent three seasons at Florida, helping the Gators win consecutive national championships in 2006 and 2007. “It’s exciting,” Al Horford said. “More than anything, I just want him to be successful. I think at Florida he’s going to have that chance.” ESPN.com first reported Horford’s choice. The 6-foot-10 Horford averaged 3.8 points and 4.2 rebounds in 13.8 minutes a game last season, helping the Wolverines win the Big Ten despite losing big man Mitch McGary to a back injury. McGary entered the NBA draft Friday, saying he had little choice after testing positive for marijuana and facing a one-year ban. With McGary gone, Horford likely would have seen significant playing time with the Wolverines. Instead, he will take his chances in Gainesville, where Florida should have a stacked frontcourt. The Gators lose center Patric Young and forwards Will Yeguete and Casey Prather to graduation, but return 6foot-10 center Damontre Harris, 6-10 forward Chris Walker and 6-8 forward Dorian Finney-Smith. They also add former Duke forward Alex Murphy, who transferred to Florida last December, and highly touted incoming freshman Devin Robinson, a 6-8 forward from Chesterfield, Va. Horford is scheduled to complete his undergraduate degree in May. So he’s taking advantage of an NCAA rule that allows graduate students to change schools without having to sit out a year under normal transfer policies. Al Horford said Florida coach Billy Donovan was a big reason for his brother’s decision. “I think coach Donovan having a relationship with our family and me playing for him, to him, it made sense,” Al Horford said. “He believes in what coach is trying to accomplish at Florida.” Horford added that he will try to attend as many games as possible next season. “Oh, I’m going to be in Gainesville, there’s no question about it,” he said. “I’m going to be supportive.” Horford will take the last of Florida’s 13 scholarships for the 2014-15 season. Of those 13 players, five are transfers. Horford, Harris (South Carolina), Finney-Smith (Virginia Tech), Murphy (Duke) and guard Eli Carter (Rutgers) all began their careers elsewhere before landing in Gainesville.
Wisconsin board approves Ryan extension
MADISON, Wis. (AP) — A Wisconsin athletic board has approved a one-year extension for Bo Ryan that stretches his five-year deal with the Badgers through 2019. Ryan guided Wisconsin to its first Final Four appearance since 2000, losing 74-73 to Kentucky in the semifinal. It was a banner year for a program that finished 30-8 and had a school record 16-game winning streak to start the season. Ryan has a compensation package of about $2.3 million a year, and his contract calls for a $100,000 raise each June. He earned a $60,000 bonus for reaching the Final Four. The Wisconsin Athletic Board approved the extension Friday, along with one-year extensions for other coaches, including Mike Eaves of men’s hockey and Mark Johnson of women’s hockey.
140th Kentucky Derby could have 4 Pletcher horses
Todd Pletcher is going after the Kentucky Derby with numbers again. The trainer who has won the America’s greatest race once could saddle four horses. Little-known Mike Maker could have three starters, while three-time Derby winner Bob Baffert has two contenders. Art Sherman has just one. But it’s a really good one. California Chrome is expected to be the favorite for the 140th Derby next Saturday. The colt brings a four-race winning streak into Churchill Downs, having won those by a combined 24 1⁄4 lengths. “I’ve never had a horse that did that before,” said Sherman, who began training in 1980 after being a jockey for 21 years and later a racing official. “I just want my horse to have a fair shake at it and have good racing luck, and I’m sure hopeful for him. He’s a gutty little horse.” Pletcher knows something about luck. Four years ago, he ended a 0-for-24 skid when long shot Super Saver, one of four horses he entered, won under a rail-hugging ride by Calvin Borel. That was the year Pletcher had the favorite, Eskendereya, who was forced to drop out six days before the Derby with a leg injury. He also had the horse to beat in 2011, Uncle Mo, who was scratched with a stomach ailment on Derby eve. This year, Pletcher’s quartet is made up of Arkansas Derby winner Danza, Risen Star winner Intense Holiday, Spiral Stakes winner We Miss Artie and Vinceremos, who finished 14th in the Blue Grass. California Chrome will need some luck tangling with an expected full field of 20 horses for the 1 1⁄4-mile race at Churchill Downs. The final lineup won’t be known until Wednesday, when entries are drawn and post positions are assigned. Baffert’s ace is Hoppertunity, who won the Rebel Stakes at Oaklawn Park. The colt will try to buck a Derby jinx that has no horse since Apollo in 1882 winning without racing as a 2-year-old. “You need a really good horse because you need a lot of luck,” said Baffert, who also has Sunland Derby winner Chitu. Maker’s trio of contenders is Louisiana Derby winner Vicar’s in Trouble, General a Rod and Harry’s Holiday. “I think it’s going to be a very lively pace,” he said. “I feel my horses they can adjust to whatever the pace calls for.” Maker has had five previous Derby starters, including Hansen, who was ninth in 2012. Both he and Pletcher are former assistants to Hall of Fame trainer D. Wayne Lukas, a four-time Derby winner. Vicar’s in Trouble will be ridden by Rosie Napravnik, who will try to become the first female jockey to win the Derby. Her husband, Joe Sharpe, is an assistant to Maker. Last year, Napravnik rode Mylute to a fifth-place finish in the Kentucky Derby behind Orb and a third-place finish in the Preakness behind Oxbow. Those finishes were the best by a female rider in each race. Sherman is going for a bit of history himself. The 77-year-old could become the oldest trainer to win, surpassing Charlie Whittingham, who was 76 when Sunday Silence won in 1989. Graham Motion, who trained 2011 Derby winner Animal Kingdom, is back with Ring Weekend, who won the Tampa Bay Derby. Steve Asmussen trains Tapiture, the Southwest Stakes winner. He’s under investigation after an animal rights group alleged mistreatment by him and a former assistant. Asmussen’s nomination to the Racing Hall of Fame was put on hold last month in the wake of the allegations. This year’s road to the Derby trail claimed a number of contenders, including Constitution, who is trained by Pletcher, and Breeders’ Cup Juvenile winner New Year’s Day, who is trained by Baffert. Also knocked out with an injury was Cairo Prince. Another of Baffert’s horses, Midnight Hawk, was dropped from Derby consideration after finishing second in the Illinois Derby. For the second straight year, the field of 20 starters is being determined by points.
Churchill Downs established a system that awards a sliding scale of points to the top four finishers in 34 designated races. The top 20-point earners earn a spot in the Derby starting gate.

UFC: Jones defends light heavyweight title
BALTIMORE (AP) — Jon Jones punished Glover Teixeira for five rounds and won a unanimous decision Saturday night at UFC 172, successfully defending his light heavyweight championship for the seventh straight time. Jones (20-1) won 50-45 on all three scorecards and rolled to his 11th straight victory, the longest streak among active UFC fighters. Jones had the Baltimore crowd roaring when he opened his pre-fight walk with the “squirrel” dance Ray Lewis made famous. The former Baltimore Ravens linebacker had a cageside seat and stood several times to root on Jones. Chandler Jones and Arthur Jones, his NFL-playing brothers, also attended and sat near Lewis. Arthur Jones, who plays for the Colts, was a Super Bowl champion with Lewis and the Ravens. Teixeira (22-3) ended a 20-bout winning streak that dates nine years.

Thunder beat Grizzlies 92-89 in OT, tie up series
MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) — Reserve Reggie Jackson scored a playoff-best 32 points, and the Oklahoma City Thunder beat the Memphis Grizzlies 92-89 in overtime Saturday night, tying up their first-round Western Conference series at two apiece. Jackson had only scored 15 points combined in this series, but the guard shook off his shooting woes by hitting 11 of 16. He outscored Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook, who struggled through their worst scoring game of the series. Durant was 5 of 21 for 15 points, while Westbrook was 6 of 24 for 15 points. The Thunder blew a 14-point lead with Memphis, and the Grizzlies blew a third straight fourth-quarter lead themselves. Jackson tied up Memphis with five straight points in the final minute of regulation. Game 5 is Tuesday night back in Oklahoma City.
NBA probing alleged recording of Clippers owner
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Anger, frustration and calls for action echoed around the NBA on Saturday after an audio recording surfaced of a man identified as Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling telling his girlfriend not to bring black people to games. Everybody except for the embattled Clippers owner, who has a decades-long history of alleged discrimination and offensive behavior, seemed to have a response. The league said it was investigating the recording posted on TMZ’s website, calling the comments “disturbing and offensive.” Lakers Hall of Famer Magic Johnson, a target of Sterling’s remarks, said he wouldn’t attend Clippers’ games as long as Sterling was the owner. Miami Heat star LeBron James asked new NBA Commissioner Adam Silver to take aggressive measures, saying “there is no room for Donald Sterling in our league.” “Obviously, if the reports are true it’s unacceptable in our league,” James said. “It doesn’t matter, white, black or Hispanic — all across the races it’s unacceptable. As the commissioner of our league they have to
make a stand. They have to be very aggressive with it. I don’t know what it will be, but we can’t have that in our league.” Silver spoke Saturday night in Memphis, Tenn., before the Grizzlies’ game against Oklahoma City, repeating that the league finds the audio tape “disturbing and offensive” and that Sterling agreed to not attend the Clippers’ game Sunday at Golden State. “All members of the NBA family should be afforded due process and a fair opportunity to present their side of any controversy, which is why I’m not yet prepared to discuss any potential sanctions against Donald Sterling,” Silver said. “We will, however, move extraordinarily quickly in our investigation.” Silver said the NBA needs to confirm authenticity of the audio tape and interview both Sterling and the woman in the recording. The Clippers will be back in Los Angeles for Game 5 on Tuesday night. “We do hope to have this wrapped up in the next few days,” Silver said. Clippers coach Doc Rivers said players discussed boycotting Game 4 of their firstround playoff series during a 45-minute team meeting but quickly decided against it. “I think the biggest statement we can make as men, not as black men, as men, is to stick together and show how strong we are as a group,” Rivers said. “Not splinter. Not walk. It’s easy to protest. The protest will be in our play.” Clippers President Andy Roeser said in a statement that the team did not know if the tape is legitimate or has been altered. He said the woman on the tape, identified by TMZ as V. Stiviano, “is the defendant in a lawsuit brought by the Sterling family alleging that she embezzled more than $1.8 million, who told Mr. Sterling that she would ‘get even.”’ Roeser also said the recording does not reflect Sterling’s beliefs. He added that Sterling is “upset and apologizes for sentiments attributed to him” about Johnson, whom he called Sterling’s friend. In the recording posted on TMZ, the man questions his girlfriend’s association with minorities. TMZ reported Stiviano, who is of black and Mexican descent, posted a picture of herself with Johnson on Instagram — which has since been removed. The man asked Stiviano not to broadcast her association with black people or bring black people to games. The man specifically mentioned Johnson on the recording, saying “don’t bring him to my games, OK?” “I will never go to a Clippers game again as long as Donald Sterling is the owner,” Johnson responded on Twitter. He also said the alleged comments are “a black eye for the NBA” and said he felt bad that friends such as Rivers and Clippers point guard Chris Paul had to work for Sterling. Paul released a statement through the players’ union that said “this is a very serious issue which we will address aggressively.” He also said Sacramento Mayor Kevin Johnson, a former NBA All-Star guard who is the chairman of a search committee to find a new director for the union, would take a leading role to help players address the matter. Sterling, a real estate owner, bought the Clippers in 1981. He is the longest-tenured owner in the NBA since Lakers owner Jerry Buss died last year. Sterling has been frequently criticized for his frugal operation of the Clippers, although in recent years he has spent heavily to add stars such as Paul and Rivers, who is in his first year as coach. Sterling also has been involved in several lawsuits over the years, including ones with accusations of discrimination. In November 2009, Sterling agreed to pay $2.73 million to settle allegations by the government that he refused to rent apartments to Hispanics and blacks and to families with children. The Justice Department sued Sterling in August 2006 for allegations of housing discrimination in the Koreatown area of Los Angeles. In March 2011, Sterling won a lawsuit against former Clippers general manager Elgin Baylor when a jury rejected the Hall of Famer’s claim of age discrimination and harassment. Baylor, who was 76 at the time, had sought about $2 million after claiming he was forced out of the job he had held for 22 years. The team said Baylor left on his own and a jury awarded him nothing. Sterling is a courtside fixture at Clippers home games. But he rarely visits the team’s locker room at Staples Center, although he made an appearance in December 2012 after the Clippers won their 11th straight game, when he led an awkward locker room cheer.

Cowboys re-sign DE Anthony Spencer to 1-year deal
IRVING, Texas (AP) — The Dallas Cowboys have re-signed defensive end Anthony Spencer to a one-year deal worth up to $3.5 million after he missed all but one game last season with a knee injury. It’s the third straight one-year deal for Spencer after the Cowboys put the franchise tag on him in 2012 and 2013. The 30-year-old Spencer hurt his left knee during the offseason last year and aggravated the injury at the start of training camp. He missed the preseason and the opener before playing in Week 2, and then

Farewell Roswell Daily Record
A tad more than four years ago, I drove from Bath, N.Y., with no idea what the state of New Mexico, let alone Roswell, had in store for me. Fresh out of college, I was fairly nervous to step out into the adult world with my first real job. Looking back now, those nerves were unfounded. While this is my farewell to Roswell as I start a new chapter pursuing a teaching degree in Florida, I will look back with nothing but fond memories of the city. I have had more great experiences with this job than I can count —I had the opportunity to be in an episode of “Breaking Bad” (the episode is titled “Problem Dog” if you want to check it out), I got media access to Denver Broncos training camp and the list goes on. What will stick with me the most, however, is the people I worked with over the past four years. Roswell is full of amazing people and I want to take time to thank a few of them. — First and foremost, I want to thank Kevin J. Keller for hiring me and giving me the opportunity to report for the Record. While he was my boss, he never held that over my head. He allowed me to cover sports like soccer and tennis as I saw fit. Above all else, he is a fierce friend who isn’t afraid to tell you how things are. In case you didn’t know, that is what real friends do. — When I look back at Roswell, I won’t have many memories that don’t involve Roswell’s power couple — Mike and Cathy Walsh. These two people are simply amazing. They are as good of friends as I have ever and will ever have. Friday mornings won’t be the same without the walks and “The Cracken.” One thing I learned while working in Roswell is that who you work with can really make or break how you feel about a job. Thankfully, Chaves County is full of great coaches that made covering teams more fun than I could have imagined. — Hagerman High should count its blessings every day to have a coach like “The bestest in the Westest” Anthony Mestas. Mestas is a great basketball coach, there is no doubt about that. What will stick with me more than his two state titles, however, is how people talk about him when he isn’t around. Any time I talked with
Noh leads Zurich Classic
AVONDALE, La. (AP) — If Sueng-Yul Noh can hold on to the lead in the Zurich Classic, he’ll do it front of fans who can appreciate how much bigger Noh’s mission is than simply winning his first PGA Tour event. Wearing yellow and black ribbons on his hat to honor victims of the April 16 South Korean ferry accident, Noh used a string of birdies late in his round Saturday to surge two strokes ahead of Keegan Bradley atop the leaderboard. It is Noh’s first career lead through three rounds on the tour, and comes in a city where sports — particularly the success of the NFL’s Saints — became an uplifting force after Hurricane Katrina. Noh finds himself representing — and captivating — a nation mourning the more than 300 dead or missing — many of them students — from the sinking of a ferry in the waters off his home country. Noh is the first player to complete 54 holes at the TPC Louisiana without a bogey. He shot a 7-under 65 to reach 18-under 198. No player has completed all four rounds on the course at better than 20 under, the score Billy Horschel posted last year, when he became the sixth player in the last nine years to secure his maiden PGA Tour triumph in New Orleans. Bradley began the day tied for seventh at 9 under. He pulled into a tie with Noh for first on No. 15 with his seventh birdie of the day. Then, Noh, who was tied for third at 11 under after two rounds, made birdie putts of 13 feet on 14 and 10 feet on 15 before hitting a 112-yard approach shot to a foot for another birdie on 16, bringing him to 18 under. Bradley also shot 65, making eight birdies. He also made one bogey on the par-3 ninth hole, when his ball landed left of the green, rolled down a bulkhead lined with cypress planks and into a water hazard from which alligators have been making routine appearances this week. It didn’t faze him, though. Robert Streb was third, three shots back after a 68. Paul Casey’s 64 was the day’s best round. He moved up to a tie for seventh with
Charley Hof fman at 13 under. Ben Martin, who had a three-shot lead after two rounds, shot a 73 to drop into a tie for fourth with Jeff Overton and Andrew Svoboda at 14 under. Overton shot 67, and Svoboda 70.
Stacy Lewis leads Swinging Skirts LPGA Classic
DALY CITY, Calif. (AP) — Stacy Lewis matched 17year -old playing partner L ydia Ko with birdies on Nos. 15 and 16 and added another on the 17th to take a one-stroke lead Saturday in the Swinging Skirts LPGA Classic. The third-ranked Lewis and fourth-ranked Ko each shot 4-under 68 at Lake Merced. Winless since the Women’s British Open in August, Lewis had a 10under 206 total. Ko won the Canadian Women’s Open as an amateur the last two years and took the Swinging Skirts World Ladies Masters in December in Thailand in her second start as a professional. She has five victories in pro events. Jenny Shin was four strokes back at 6 under. She also shot 68. Michelle Wie, the winner last week in Hawaii, was tied for 13th at 1 under after a 71.

a Bobcat player the past four years, they had nothing but admiration for their coach. In fact, talk to any person with a connection with Hagerman and there will be nothing but praise for Mestas. Mestas is a fantastic role model for his players and two sons — Izzy and Ryan. — Heading into this job I was a soccer novice, but Roswell coach James Ver non made sure I became ... competent with the beautiful game. Ver non would always answer any question I had about the game, regardless of how silly it was. Not only did he help me find a passion for a sport, he was always a straight shooter, which is rare in journalism at any level. When his team played poorly, he didn’t try to sugar coat it, he would tell me they didn’t play well and not make excuses. I will always remember the Coyotes’ goal in the state title game against Academy. Even though I’m not supposed to cheer as a journalist, I couldn’t help but let loose, because Vernon always made me feel like I was a part of the team. — I can’t get to everyone I need to thank or recognize, but I do want to mention a few more people: The Romero family (for always being friendly to me and inviting me over for Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner); Kevin Jones; Toby Martinez (I will miss the video game and movie talks we had at night while we waited for Byron to reluctantly stop the press); Ilissa (for being sassy and a perfect “big horse”); Casey Crandall; Geoff Gunn; Bert Sackermyer (you know who you are Simmy); Kelly McDonald; Jim Kelly; Arnold J. Roe; Shawn Naranjo; and Steve Notz. If this were an Oscar acceptance speach, I’m sure i would have been cut off by now, so, I will wrap it up. Bath is where I grew up and will always be my home, but when I think back to my time in Roswell, it will also be home. Because there are loved ones and cherished memories all around.

In the fourth, Villareal retired the first two batters, but a walk, a hit batsman and a Zane Pittam RBI single gave Artesia a 2-0 in the next three at-bats. Villareal struck out Ben Kelley to retire the side, though. “We got ourselves, as a team, into a couple of jams there early,” Edmonson said. “Cal did a pretty good job of wiping out some of the errors and some of the walks by coming right after the next hitter to get some important outs for us.” Villareal went six in the winning effort, giving up two runs on six hits while striking out seven, walking five and hitting three. Villareal finally got some help from his offense in the bottom half of the fourth. Goddard had managed just one hit — a single by Cody French in the second — through the first three innings, but quadrupled that in the fourth inning alone. French (2 for 2, one RBI, one run) drove home Tommy Perea with an RBI double to make it 2-1 before scoring on a balk while Villareal was at the plate for the tying run. Villareal’s single plated Adam Brown, putting the Rockets in the lead for good. In the fifth, Perea (2 for 4, two runs, one RBI) and Mitch Weathers recorded RBI singles, pushing across the game’s final two runs. “We finally took a better approach to their pitcher and it showed. We started hitting the ball,” Edmonson said about the offense. “Those first three innings, we mustered out (one) base hit. Then we figured out a way to get (nine) hits our next

Goddard 14, Artesia 10 The second game of the double dip featured a combined 24 runs and 25 hits. Artesia built a 5-0 lead in the third and led 9-3 after its trip to the plate in the fourth. The Rockets rallied, though, scoring five runs off five hits in their half of the fourth to draw within 98. They added the tying run in the fifth. Artesia regained the lead in the
sixth on a wild pitch, but the lead wouldn’t last long. The first five hitters in Goddard’s half recorded hits, paving the way for a five-run inning and a four-run advantage. Artesia loaded the bases with one out in the seventh, but Mitch Naylor nailed things down by sitting down the only two batters he faced to kill the rally. Ricky Roybal earned the win for Goddard. He gave up one run on on two hits and struck out six in 2 1⁄2 innings in relief of Brown. Perea led the Rocket offense with three hits. Five other Rockets recorded two hits apiece.

MLB: Rangers hold off Seattle for 6-3 victory Roswell Daily Record
SEATTLE (AP) — Mitch Moreland drove in Prince Fielder with a tiebreaking sacrifice fly in the eighth inning, and the Texas Rangers held of f the Seattle Mariners for a 6-3 victory Saturday night. Aaron Poreda (1-0) pitched two scoreless innings to earn his first victory since June 25, 2009, with the Chicago White Sox. Joakim Soria got three outs for his sixth save in six chances. The Rangers appeared to be in trouble when they fell behind 30 with Felix Hernandez on the mound for Seattle. But they got to the ace for three runs in the fifth and added thr ee mor e against the Mariners’ bullpen. Singles from Moreland, Donnie Murphy and Leonys Martin loaded the bases with no outs in the fifth. Robinson Chirinos drew a walk on four pitches to push Moreland across for the Rangers’ first run. Michael Choice singled in another run and Elvis Andrus’ sacrifice fly tied it at 3. Hernandez allowed five hits in six innings. He struck out four and walked three. Charlie Furbush (0-2) got the loss. After Moreland’s sacrifice fly gave Texas the lead, the Rangers added a pair of insurance runs in the ninth against Joe Beimel. Martin scored on a wild pitch and Fielder singled in Andrus. In the leadoff spot for the first time this season, Michael Saunders homered off Colby Lewis to give the Mariners an early 1-0 lead. Kyle Seager led off the second with another homer and then scored on Mike Zunino’s sacrifice fly in the fourth
Rays 4, White Sox 0 CHICAGO (AP) — Cesar Ramos and two relievers combined for a five-hitter, leading the Tampa Bay Rays to a 4-0 win against the Chicago White Sox on Saturday night. Ramos (1-1) pitched five innings of five-hit ball in place of Matt Moore, who had Tommy John surgery on Tuesday. Brandon Gomes then tossed three innings and Juan Carlos Oviedo finished. James Loney had three hits for the Rays, who snapped a three-game losing streak. Ryan Hanigan hit a two-run double to give the Rays a 2-0 lead in the second after Loney singled and Logan Forsythe walked. White Sox starter John Danks (2-1) struggled with his command and a high pitch count. He allowed four runs and seven hits in 5 2 ⁄ 3 innings. He struck out four, walked four and threw a career-high 123 pitches. The White Sox threatened in the fifth, loading the bases with a walk, a single and another walk. Jose Abreu grounded out against Ramos to end the inning. Abreu hit a game-ending grand slam in Chicago’s 9-6 victory over the Rays on Friday.

In Game 2, Dexter seemed to be in control throughout, but NMMI rallied with a big fifth en route to the win. Dexter (7-15, 1-5) scored five times in the third to take the lead and had its advantage out to 8-4 after the top half of the fifth. NMMI plated six runs in bottom of the fifth to take the lead for good before adding a pair of insurance runs in the sixth. Allen picked up the victory in relief of starter Ben Morgan. Allen pitched the final three innings, allowing three runs on six hits
kees bounced back against the Angels. David Robertson posted his first save since coming off the disabled list. Mike Trout singled with one out in a nervy ninth and stole second, but Robertson retired Albert Pujols on a flyball and struck out Howie Kendrick to end it. A day after the Angels homered four times in a 13-1 romp, they started strong when Trout hit a solo shot on the seventh pitch of the afternoon. Murphy lined a two-out, tworun single in the second that gave the Yankees a 3-1 lead. The backup catcher then homered on the first pitch in the fifth, tagging Hector Santiago (0-4) for a 4-3 lead. Betances (1-0) took over in the fifth for shaky starter Vidal Nuno and pitched two scoreless innings.
Red Sox 7, Blue Jays 6 TORONTO (AP) — A.J. Pierzynski hit his eighth career grand slam and Will Middlebr ooks added a solo homer, powering Boston to the r oad win. Jose Bautista and Juan Francisco hit solo home runs for the Blue Jays, who have lost a season-high four straight games. Middlebrooks has five home runs and 10 extra base hits in 13 career games at Toronto’s Rogers Centre. He had a threehomer game against the Blue Jays on April 7, 2013. Clay Buchholz survived a shaky first inning to win for the first time in five starts this season. Buchholz (1-2) allowed three runs and six hits in seven innings. Koji Uehara got four outs for his fifth save. Blue Jays right-hander Brandon Morr ow (1-2) issued a career-worst eight walks in 2 2⁄3 innings, allowing four runs without giving up a hit.
Orioles 3, Royals 2, 10 inn. BAL TIMORE (AP) — Nick Markakis singled in the winning run in the 10th inning after two thr owing err ors by pitcher Danny Duffy laid the groundwork for the Orioles’ victory. The Orioles went eight straight innings without scoring before facing Duf fy, who had pitched 8 1 ⁄ 3 scoreless innings on the season. After Duffy (1-1) hit Jonathan Schoop to begin the 10th, the left-hander threw wildly to second base after fielding a bunt by David Lough. Jemile Weeks followed with another bunt, and on this one Duffy’s throw went high and wide to first, loading the bases. Louis Coleman replaced Duffy and struck out Nelson Cruz before Markakis hit an oppositefield liner that landed inside the left-field foul line. Zach Britton (3-0), the sixth Baltimore pitcher, struck out Jarrod Dyson with two outs and a runner on second in the top of the 10th. Twins 5, Tigers 3 MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Phil Hughes thr ew seven str ong

innings and Josmil Pinto hit his fifth homer, leading Minnesota to the victory. Hughes (2-1) had six strikeouts with no walks. He retired 16 straight at one point and has won two straight — a welcome sight for a Twins rotation that had produced only six quality starts this season. Jared Burton pitched a scoreless eighth and Glen Perkins worked the ninth for his sixth save in seven chances. Detroit led 2-0 before starter Anibal Sanchez left in the third with a blister on his middle finger on his throwing hand, forcing newly recalled Jose Ortega (0-1) into action. Ortega, who had just arrived from Triple-A Toledo, and Phil Coke then combined to walk six Twins batters — five in the fifth.
Astros 7, Athletics 6 HOUSTON (AP) — Dexter Fowler hit a tiebreaking RBI single in Houston’s four-run eighth inning, and the Astros held on for the win. Fowler also had a solo homer as Houston snapped a threegame losing streak. Chris Carter connected for a two-run shot in the second. The game was tied at 3 when Fowler drove in Marwin Gonzalez with a base hit against Sean Doolittle (0-2). Jason Castro then singled in Jose Altuve, and Fowler and Castro eventually came home on groundouts. Brandon Moss hit a three-run homer in the Oakland ninth against Jerome Williams (1-1). Nick Punto then singled, but Coco Crisp bounced into a fielder’s choice and Raul Valdes struck out John Jaso and Jed Lowrie for his first save. Houston ended an eight-game losing streak against Oakland, dating to last season. The Astros also improved to 6-25 against the A’s overall.
NATIONAL LEAGUE Nationals 4, Padres 0 WASHINGTON (AP) — Tanner Roark pitched a three-hitter for the first complete game of his car eer as the Washington Nationals beat the San Diego Padres 4-0 on Saturday. Roark set down the first 16 batters before San Diego catcher Rene Rivera, an .074 batter entering the game, hit a solid single to center field with one out in the sixth inning. Roark (2-0) walked one and struck out eight, including Jedd Gyorko to end the game on his 105th pitch. The 27-year -old right-hander extended his run of consecutive scoreless innings to 18, improved to 4-0 in his career at Nationals Park. In 35 innings ther e he has given up one earned run. Ian Desmond had three hits for Washington, including a runscoring double — the game’s only extra-base hit — which highlighted a three-run first inning off losing pitcher Andrew Cashner (2-3). Washington got all the offense it needed in the first inning as singles by Anthony Rendon, Jayson Werth, and Adam
the loss for NMMI, allowing six runs on 10 hits and striking out nine in 5 2⁄3 innings. At the plate, Angel Peguero and Zach Habarka each recorded two hits. Habarka drove in NMMI’s lone run with an RBI single to left in the second inning. In Game 2, FPC built a 5-1 lead through two and never trailed en route to the win. Justice Boldin was saddled with the loss. He gave up five runs on five hits and walked four in two innings. Correy Davis was 5 for 6 with four runs and two RBIs for NMMI. Joe Galindo went 3 for 6 with three RBIs and two runs. Three other Broncos had at least two hits, including Chris Foster, who went 2 for 4 with two RBIs and a run.
LaRoche pr oduced one run. Desmond’s double to the rightfield corner brought in another. Danny Espinosa’s sacrifice fly gave the Nationals a 3-0 lead.
Braves 4, Reds 1 ATLANTA (AP) — Rookie righthander David Hale allowed only two hits over eight innings in a per for mance that may not be enough to save his spot in Atlanta’s r otation and the Braves beat Cincinnati. Fr eddie Fr eeman, Justin Upton and Evan Gattis each homered off Cincinnati’s Mike Leake (2-2). Hale gave up a walk and two hits, including Ryan Ludwick’s run-scoring double, in the first inning. He didn’t allow another hit as he faced the minimum 21 batters over the next seven innings. Cincinnati’s only other baserunner against Hale came on Jay Bruce’s leadoff walk in the fourth, and the Braves ended that inning with a double play. Craig Kimbrel closed the combined two-hitter for his eighth save. Hale (1-0) has a 2.31 ERA in four starts but could lose his spot in the rotation next week, when left-hander Mike Minor is expected to come of f the disabled list.
Pirates 6, Cardinals 1 ST. LOUIS (AP) — Gaby Sanchez had two RBIs in a fourrun fourth inning and Pittsburgh’s bullpen worked seven str ong innings after starter Francisco Liriano left with flulike symptoms and dizziness in a victory over St. Louis. Matt Holliday had an RBI double for the Cardinals, who have mustered five runs in their last six games. They got three hits and a run in seven innings off five Pittsburgh relievers. Yadier Molina was a bust on his jersey giveaway day, striking out with the bases loaded to end the thir d against Stolmy Pimentel (2-0) and popping out with runners on second and third to end the fifth against Jared Hughes. He entered batting .431 during a 15-game hitting streak. Andrew McCutchen and Jose Tabata each added an RBI off Tyler L yons (0-2) in the fourth, with the first four runners reaching safely after the lefty opened with thr ee per fect innings. Tabata totaled three hits and is a career .345 hitter at Busch Stadium.
Marlins 7, Mets 6, 10 inn. NEW YORK (AP) — Jarr od Saltalamacchia homered leading off the 10th inning, Giancarlo Stanton also went deep and Miami rallied from four runs down to beat New York. Stanton hit a two-run shot and Miami climbed out of a 5-1 hole with a five-run sixth capped by pinch-hitter Reed Johnson’s two-run double. Stanton’s seventh home run of the season gave him 29 RBIs, most in the majors. Bobby Abr eu hit his first

major league homer since 2012 and Lucas Duda had a two-run single for the Mets, who had won three straight and five of six. New York was trying to move four games over .500 for the first time since July 14, 2012. Mike Dunn (2-3) struck out four in two hitless innings and Steve Cishek ear ned his fifth save, one night after coughing up a ninth-inning lead for his first blown save since June 4, 2013. Cishek had converted a team-record 33 straight chances before Friday. Saltalamacchia sent a 2-2 pitch from Kyle Farnsworth (0-1) off a railing just above the leftcenter fence. The ball caromed back onto the field and Saltalamacchia initially stopped at second base, but the umpir es quickly waved him home without looking at a replay.
Brewers 5, Cubs 3 MILWAUKEE (AP) — Jef f Bianchi had a two-run single, and Marco Estrada threw 7 2 ⁄ 3 strong innings to lead Milwaukee past Chicago. Bianchi went 2 for 4, entering the game as a pinch-hitter in the first for Jean Segura, who was hit in the head in the dugout by a bat. A TV replay showed the AllStar getting hit on the right side of the head during a war mup swing by teammate Ryan Braun, who was facing the field on the top steps of the dugout while Segura was coming up behind him. Manager Ron Roenicke said that Segura didn’t have a concussion or fractures, but needed stitches to close a gash on his face. It was unclear how long he might be out. Bianchi dr ove in two runs with a bases-loaded single in the second off Cubs starter Travis Wood (1-3). Estrada (2-1) had nine strikeouts. Francisco Rodriguez tossed a 1-2-3 ninth for his 11th save.
Giants 5, Indians 3 SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Hunter Pence hit a two-run single in San Francisco’s four-run fifth inning, leading the Giants over Cleveland. Buster Posey added a solo homer in the sixth as San Francisco earned its third consecutive win. Posey, who won the NL MVP award in 2012, went 1 for 3 and is batting .103 (4 for 39) over his last 13 games. Michael Bourn, Nick Swisher and David Murphy had two hits apiece for Cleveland, which blew a 3-0 lead. Jason Kipnis drove in two runs. Indians right-hander Zach McAllister was in complete control before he got into trouble in the fifth. He needed just seven pitches to get through the third and seven more to retire the side in the fourth. McAllister (3-1) retired 12 in a row before Michael Morse led off the fifth with a single to center. Morse advanced to thir d on Brandon Crawford’s one-out single and scored on Gregor Blanco’s pinch-hit single.

Pacers even series with Hawks with 91-88 win
ATLANTA (AP) — The Indiana Pacers knew what they were up against. This was a game they had to have. Paul George and David West made sure they got it. George and West hit key 3-pointers down the closing minutes, and top-seeded Indiana held of f the Atlanta Hawks 91-88 to even the opening-round series at two wins apiece Saturday. Finally, the Pacers showed some grit and resilience, regaining the home-court edge that slipped away when they were stunned by the No. 8-seeded Hawks in Game 1. “We were just in desper-
ation mode,” West said. “You just can’t go down two games in a playof f series. The odds ar e against you.” George put the Pacers ahead 86-85 with a jumper beyond the arc, and West hit another trey with 1:33 remaining. Atlanta had a chance after Kyle Korver was fouled in the corner and knocked down three free throws, taking advantage of a do-over after the Pacers were called for a lane violation. But George gave the Pacers two chances at the other hand, scrambling for an of fensive r ebound after Lance Stephenson missed a 3. George Hill took advantage by scooping one in of f a

following a 101-97 win Game 2 that came down the wire, dedicating themselves to fixing their mistakes rather than being satisfied with the win. Now he said the challenge is closing out the Bobcats. “You don’t want a series to go longer than it needs to,” Spoelstra said. Al Jefferson finished with 20 points — 15 in the first quarter — for the Bobcats, who are still searching for the first postseason win in franchise history. After trailing most of the first half, the Heat took control in the final four minutes of the second quarter. Mario Chalmers gave Miami a 42-40 lead on a 3-pointer, Norris Cole hit a 5foot bank shot and then another 3 from the left wing helping the Heat close the half on a 16-4 run. Miami made 8 of their first 11 3-pointers. The half, which had started with so much energy and promise for the Bobcats, ended with a colossal mistake by guard Gerald Henderson. With the clock winding down, he turned the ball over in the backcourt with 2 seconds left and then fouled James while the Miami forward was attempting a 3-pointer. James made the Bobcats pay by sinking three free throws with 0.2 left on the clock to give the Heat a 58-46 advantage at the break. “We butchered the last three-and-ahalf minutes of the first half,” Bobcats coach Steve Clifford said. Said James: “I put it on my shoulders tonight to close out the quarter the right way. And I think that resulted in the way we started the third quarter.” The second half was all Miami. James, who was booed loudly almost
drive with 56 seconds left. That would be the final points. The Hawks whiffed on their last three possessions; Pero Antic missed a 3-pointer at the buzzer to force overtime after the Pacers made sure Korver, the long-range specialist, didn’t get his hands on the ball. Game 5 is Monday in Indianapolis. After questioning his team’s toughness, George scor ed 24 points and added 10 rebounds for his fourth straight doubledouble. West added 18 points. “My number was called,” George said. “I had to deliver.” Unfortunately for the Hawks, Paul Millsap
every time he touched the ball, hit a key 3-pointer and had the breakaway dunk off a steal from Josh McRoberts in the third quarter to help push the lead to 26 midway through the third. The Bobcats never mounted a series challenge after that point. James has never lost a first-round series with his teams in Cleveland and Miami going a combined 8-0. There was some intrigue entering the game. James was outspoken on Friday after taking an elbow to the throat from McRoberts in Game 2, although no flagrant foul was called on the floor. The two made contact early in the first quarter when James drove baseline and McRoberts attempted to take a charge, but of ficials called a blocking foul. James made the shot but missed the ensuing free throw. McRoberts walked away after the foul clapping his hands, refusing to get upset by a call that could have easily gone the other way. Slowing down Jefferson was crucial for the Heat. He hit 7 of 9 shots to start the game helped Charlotte take a 27-23 lead after the first quarter. By the middle of the second quarter, Bobcats fans, wearing all white, began chanting “M-V-P M-V-P” as Jefferson shot free throws. But Charlotte’s enthusiasm was short-lived as James and the Heat began flexing its muscles. Jefferson was held to just five points in the final three quarters in large part due to Chris Bosh. “They just got up in the passing lanes and made it hard for us to get Al the ball,” Clifford said. “You’ve got to give them credit. Their defense was terrific.” The Heat also turned up the pressure on point guard Kemba Walker, trapping him out near half court. The Heat forced 14 turnovers.

couldn’t pr ovide the matching punch. Even though he led the Hawks with 29 points, the All-Star forward turned it over with a bad pass with 33 seconds to go. Then, after Stephenson lost the ball and the Hawks gained possession of f a jump, Millsap missed a spinning shot in the lane as Atlanta passed on going for a tying 3-pointer. “We’re still a confident group,” Millsap said. “We let one slip away, but we showed we can go out and compete in the games up there. That’s where our mindset is now. We’ve got to let this one go and get ready for Monday.” Indiana left the door open by missing its final four free throws, including a pair by George with 7.5 seconds left when only one would have been enough to seal the victory. But the Pacers buckled down at the defensive end, forcing Antic to throw up a desperation shot that clanked off the rim. It was tight all the way in the fourth, and things really got heated down the stretch. With about 5 1 ⁄ 2 minutes remaining, Millsap

Ginobili, who scored 12 points, dribbled out most of the last 24 seconds before going around Duncan and scoring over Samuel Dalembert for a 108-106 lead. His goahead shot spun around the rim and almost came out before falling in. “You never think it’s over, especially in here,” Ginobili said. “We’ve got experience on that. As long as you don’t see ‘zero zero’ over there, it’s not over.”

The big Ger man finished with 18. Dallas still had a chance in the closing seconds because of Ellis, who had a playoff career high that included 12 fourth-quarter points. He tied the score twice in the final 1:10, first with a three-point play on a floater after he was fouled by Boris Diaw. After Diaw put the Spurs back in front with a baseline jumper, Ellis hit another high floater in the lane with 24.9 sec-

T iago Splitter had 14 points and 13 rebounds and Kawhi Leonard awoke from a series-long slumber with 17 points, including a big 3-pointer in the fourth quarter. “In the second half, I didn’t play,” Parker said. “They were doing the same thing.” Dalembert did most of his damage in the first half but still made his presence felt after halftime, finished 13 points, 10 rebounds and four blocks and making two free throws for a 104-all tie after rebounding a Nowitzki miss. Calderon had 16 points, including 10 during a fast Dallas start in the first quarter. He also had nine assists.

School stabbing suspect is under psych evaluation
HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — A teenager charged with stabbing a fellow high school student to death on the day of their junior prom is being held in a hospital under psychiatric evaluation where he will likely remain for two weeks, one of his attorneys said Saturday. The name of the 16-yearold suspect was not officially released but people who saw him taken into custody identified him as Chris Plaskon, a friend of the victim’s and an athlete described as genial and respectful. Plaskon is accused of stabbing to death Maren Sanchez, 16, in the hallway of Jonathan Law High School in Milford. The attack occurred Friday morning, hours before the school’s junior prom, and authorities were investigating whether Sanchez was stabbed after turning down his invitation to the dance. The suspect, who is charged as a juvenile offender, will not appear at an arraignment scheduled for Monday in New Haven, attorney Richard Meehan said. The hospital commitment can last for up to 15 days, according to Meehan. He said doctors typically order such involuntary
Above: This July 2012 photo provided by Carol Tapanila shows her and her second husband in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. Tapanila, a native of upstate New York who has lived in Canada since 1969, has joined a largely overlooked surge of Americans rejecting what is, to millions, a highly sought prize: U.S. citizenship. Left: This circa 1981 photo provided by Tapanila shows her children wearing cowboy hats in Airdrie, Alberta, Canada for the Calgary Stampede event. After retiring from a job as an administrative assistant at an oil company in Calgary, Tapanila, still a U.S. citizen, began putting $125 a month into a special savings account for her developmentally disabled son, left, matched by the Canadian government.
Inside the long-awaited package, six pages of government paperwork dryly affirmed Carol Tapanila’s anxious request. But when Tapanila slipped the contents from the brown envelope, she saw there was something more. “We the people....” declared the script inside her U.S. passport — now with four holes punched through it from cover to cover. Her departure from life as an American was stamped final on the same page: “Bearer Expatriated Self.” With the envelope’s arrival, Tapanila, a native of upstate New York who has lived in Canada since 1969, joined a largely overlooked surge of Americans rejecting what is, to millions, a highly sought prize: U.S. citizenship. Last year, the U.S. government reported a record 2,999 people renounced citizenship or terminated permanent residency; most are widely assumed to be driven by a desire to avoid paying taxes on hidden wealth. The reality, though, is more complicated. The government’s pursuit of tax evaders among Americans living abroad is indeed driving the jump in abandoned citizenship, experts say. But renouncers — whose ranks have swelled more than five-fold from a decade ago — often contradict the stereotype of the financial scoundrel. Many are from very ordinary economic circumstances.

Some call themselves “accidental Americans,” who recall little of life in the U.S., but long ago happened to be born in it. Others say they renounced because of politics, family or personal identity. Some say signing away citizenship was a huge relief. Others recall being sickened by the decision. At the U.S. consulate in Geneva, “I talked to a man who explained to me that I could never, ever get my nationality back,” says Donna-Lane Nelson, whose Boston accent lingers though she’s lived in Switzerland 24 years. “It felt like a divorce. It felt like a death. I took the second oath and I left the consulate and I threw up.” When Americans do hear about compatriots rejecting citizenship, it’s more often people keeping their U.S. citizenship and dropping that of another country. Last year, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz acknowledged the Canadian citizenship he was born to, but said he would renounce it. In 2012, Rep. Michele Bachmann, RMinnesota, saying she was “100 percent committed to our United States Constitution,” announced she was giving up Swiss citizenship gained through marriage. One of the few times rejected U.S. citizenship has gotten significant ink was Facebook co-founder Eduardo Saverin’s 2011 decision to turn in his American passport after moving to Singapore.
Saverin likely avoided millions of dollars in taxes by doing so shortly before Facebook’s initial stock offering.
Other wealthy Americans also have relinquished U.S. citizenship. Denise Rich, the ex-wife of pardoned trader Marc Rich, expatriated in 2012 and lives in London. Last fall, singer Tina Turner, a resident of Switzerland since 1995, relinquished her U.S. passport.
But Saverin’s decision, in particular, hit a political nerve, along with scandals surrounding UBS and Credit Suisse, which were caught matching wealthy Americans with offshore accounts.
In recent years, federal officials have stepped up pursuit of potential tax evaders, using the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act which requires that Americans overseas report assets to the IRS or pay stiff penalties. Those trying to comply complain of costly fees for accountants and lawyers, having to report the income of non-American spouses, and decisions by some European banks to close accounts of U.S. citizens or deny them loans.
But some of those surrendering citizenship say their reasons are as much about life as about taxes, particularly since the U.S. government does not tax Americans abroad on their first $96,600 in yearly income.
commitments in cases where someone in custody is considered a danger to himself. Meehan said the suspect’s family is also reeling from the attack. “His family is devastated not only for him, but the youngster who was killed. It’s a terrible situation all the way around,” Meehan said. His client is expected to be charged as an adult, but he would need to appear in court for that to happen, Meehan said. State’s Attorney Kevin Lawlor said several factors go into that decision, including the seriousness of the charges. Mark Robinson, a technical education teacher, said he was walking into the high school Friday when he saw Plaskon being taken out in handcuffs. He said Plaskon, the third of five brothers, was on football teams that he coached when Plaskon was a freshman and sophomore. He said Plaskon has a good sense of humor and the family has deep roots in the community. “There’s no reason to suspect he would have done this. I think that’s what makes it harder,” Robinson said.

Benedict to join double sainthood ceremony Priests sing and dance in St. Peter's Square at the Vatican, Saturday.
VATICAN CITY (AP) — Retired pontiff Benedict XVI will help Pope Francis celebrate the sainthood ceremony Sunday for John Paul II and John XXIII, setting the stage for an unprecedented occurrence of two living popes canonizing two of their predecessors. About 1 million pilgrims are expected at the event and many were flooding into Rome on Saturday. Vatican spokesman the Rev. Federico Lombardi told reporters on Saturday that Benedict will be in St. Peter’s Square for the canonization of John and John Paul. He said Benedict and many cardinals will “concelebrate” the Mass with Francis. Benedict resigned from the papacy a year ago, and since has largely dedicated himself to prayer in a monastery on the Vatican grounds. Sunday’s appearance will be his highest-profile one since he retired. Francis, who lives elsewhere in Vatican City, in a guesthouse, has been quite welcoming to his predecessor, occasionally paying a call on Benedict. It was Francis who sought to include Benedict in Sunday’s ceremony, expected to draw hundreds of thousands of tourists and pilgrims. “Emeritus Pope Benedict XVI has accepted the invitation, and has let Pope Francis know that he will be present tomorrow morning at the canonization ceremony and will concelebrate” along with other prelates, Lombardi said.
“That doesn’t mean that he will go up on the altar” on the steps of St. Peter’s Basilica, Lombardi said of the outdoor Mass. He noted that during the ceremony, cardinals and bishops will be seated on one side of the esplanade, with, presumably, Benedict, among them. “We will all be happy to have his presence” at the ceremony, the Vatican spokesman said. Benedict also showed up Francis’ ceremony to elevate churchmen to cardinal’s rank in February. But that ceremony wasn’t a Mass, meaning Sunday’s appearance by two popes would be the first Mass concelebrated by two pontiffs, one reigning and the other retired. As German Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, Benedict presided over John Paul II’s funeral in the square in 2005. He was soon elected pontiff himself, going on to lead the ceremony to beatify his Polish-born predecessor in 2011, also in the square. Beatification is the last formal step before sainthood. It was John Paul who, early in his papacy, appointed the German prelate to a key Vatican post in charge of safeguarding church teaching, and eventually, also dealing with the mounting cases of sexual abuse of minors by priests in the United States and elsewhere. Benedict has a connection to John XXIII’s papacy as well. As a young theologian, he attended the Second Vatican Council, the gathering of
prelates from around the globe that the Italian pope set up as a way to bring modernizing reforms to the Catholic church.
On Saturday, pilgrims were pouring into Rome in big groups or as individual families or travelers, eager to be among those taking their place in the square before dawn on the day of the ceremony. The sound of hymns, in Polish, English and Italian, echoed suddenly in some of Rome’s streets Saturday, then just as abruptly faded, as faithful joyfully sang as they made their way through the Italian capital. Interior Minister Angelino Alfano said an estimated 1 million people were expected to flood into Rome for the event.
Working to ensure the crowds are safe, authorities were deploying about 3,500 extra police in Rome, beefing up the total to around 10,000 officers. Some officers on Saturday led dogs trained in sniffing out explosives along the streets near the Vatican as part of security sweeps.
Police were also trying to keep faithful from being ripped off. Italy’s customs and tax police cracked down on vendors selling counterfeit merchandise, confiscating 1,500 boxes of rosaries resembling the ones that Pope Francis had distributed free to faithful in St. Peter’s Square in November.
HANCOCK, Md. (AP) — The Medal of Honor, created by Congress during the Civil War as America’s highest military decoration for valor, was never meant for Americans who fought for the South. They were the enemy, after all. But there’s a Confederate Medal of Honor, little known yet highly prized, that the Sons of Confederate Veterans bestows on those whose bravery in battle can be proven to the private group’s satisfaction. The silver -and-bronze medal is a 10-pointed star bearing the Great Seal of the Confederate States and the words, “Honor. Duty. Valor. Devotion.” It has been awarded 50 times since 1977, most recently to Maj. James Breathed, a native Virginian buried in Hancock. He was honored last year for his bravery as an artillery officer in the 1864 Battle of Spotsylvania Courthouse in Virginia. The number of recipients is tiny compared to the 3,487 on the U.S. Medal of Honor roll, including more than 1,500 who fought for the Union in the War Between the States. Members of the Sons of Confederate Veterans say their medal is given less freely than those the Union awarded during the war. “The SCV created their own Confederate Medal of Honor simply because there were some incredible acts of valor that had received little or no recognition during and after the war,” said Ben Sewell III, executive director of the 29,000-member group, based in Columbia, Tenn. The medal has Civil Warera origins. Confederate President Jefferson Davis signed a law in 1862 authorizing medals for courage on the battlefield, but none was issued. The U.S. Army Center of Military History says Gen. Robert E. Lee refused to

award individual citations for valor, mentioning noteworthy performance in his dispatches instead.
The Confederate Medal of Honor recipients are largely low-to-middle-ranking figures. Perhaps best-known is Lt. Gen. Nathan Bedford Forrest of Tennessee, who tor mented Union commanders with lightning raids, reportedly had black Union soldiers executed after their surrender at Fort Pillow, Tenn., and was for a time a post-war member of the Ku Klux Klan.
The first medal recipient was Pvt. Samuel Davis of Smyrna, Tenn. Davis was captured by Union troops and hanged as a spy in 1863 at age 21. His statue graces the grounds of the state capitol in Nashville, along with those of presidents Andrew Jackson and Andrew Johnson. Other recipients include the eight crew members of the Confederate submarine H.L. Hunley who perished in 1864 while attacking the federal war sloop USS Housatonic near Charleston, S.C.
Travolta, Spacey in Tampa for ‘Bollywood Oscars’ Roswell Daily Record
TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Hollywood stars John Travolta and Kevin Spacey appeared on the green carpet Saturday with Bollywood stars in front of thousands of fans before an extravagant awards show that celebrates the best in Indian cinema. The International Indian Film Academy awards — informally known as the “Bollywood Oscars,” — are being held in the United States for the first time. Some 20,000 people are expected to attend the show Saturday night at Raymond James Stadi-
um. Travolta, Spacey and dozens of Indian film stars including Deepika Padukone walked slowly past hordes of international media outside the stadium on Saturday night prior to the awards. Unlike the Academy Awards, IIFA uses a green carpet instead of a red one. Travolta, who will be honored with an award, posed for photos with his ar m around actress Priyanka Chopra. During a packed news conference Saturday after noon, the Oscar winner said he is currently
considering a role in a Bollywood movie. “I cannot deny music and dance in my life,” he told reporters. “It is part of my soul. This is part of most of Bollywood’s films and I agree with it.” Whether the “Saturday Night Fever” and “Grease” actor dances onstage Saturday night remains to be seen. Also on Saturday afternoon, ‘House of Cards’ star Kevin Spacey held a master acting class with Chopra. When asked what he thought
Sunday, April 27, 2014
about Hollywood and Bollywood working together, Spacey made the crowd of 300 roar with his answer: “Well, it’s about (expletive) time,” he said. The awards cap off four days of well-attended events, much to the delight of Tampa tourism authorities and lovers of Indian film and culture. The event has drawn the biggest Indian celebrities, including Deepika Padukone, Anil Kapoor and Hrithik Roshan. The contenders for Best Picture are Dhoom 3, Bhaag Milkha
Bhaag, Krrish 3, Chennai Express, Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani, Goliyon Ki Rasleela-Ramleela and Kai Po Che. “Bollywood” is the term for the film industry based in Mumbai (Bombay). Although it is used mostly to refer to the lengthy song-and-dance movies in the Hindi language, it’s become somewhat of a catchall term for Indian films. IIFA organizers say the Indian industry sells 3.6 billion movie tickets a year, about a quarter of them in the U.S.
Diggers find Atari’s E.T. games in landfill ALAMOGORDO (AP) — A decades-old urban legend was put to rest Saturday when workers for a documentary film production company recovered “E.T.” Atari game cartridges from a heap of garbage buried deep in the New Mexico desert. The “Atari grave” was, until that moment, a highly debated tale among gaming enthusiasts and other self-described geeks for 30 years. The story claimed that in its death throes, the video game company sent about a dozen truckloads of cartridges of what many call the worst video game ever to be forever hidden in a concrete-covered landfill in southeastern New Mexico. The search for the cartridges of a game that contributed to the demise of Atari will be featured in an upcoming documentary about the biggest video game company of the early ‘80s. As a backhoe scattered a huge scoop of 30-yearold trash and dirt over the sand, the film crew spotted boxes and booklets carrying the Atari logo. Soon after, a game cartridge tur ned up, then another and another. Film director Zak Penn showed assembled gaming fans one cartridge retrieved from the site and said that hundreds more were in the surrounding mounds of garbage. About 200 residents and game enthusiasts gathered early Saturday at the old landfill in Alamogordo to watch crews search for up to a million discarded copies of “E.T. The Extraterrestrial” that the game’s maker wanted to hide forever. “I feel pretty relieved and psyched that they actually got to see something,” Penn said as members of the production team sifted through the mounds of trash, pulling out boxes, games and other Atari products. Most of the crowd left the landfill before the discovery, tur ned away by strong winds that kicked up massive clouds of dust mingled with garbage. By the time the games were found, only a few dozen people remained. Some were playing the infamous game in a makeshift gaming den

Among the watchers was Ar mando Ortega, a city of ficial who as a teenager back in 1983 got a tip from a landfill employee about the massive dump of games. “It was pitch dark here that night, but we came with our flashlights and found dozens of games,” he said. They braved the darkness, coyotes and snakes of the desert landfill and had to sneak past the security guard. But it paid of f as they found dozens of crushed but still playable cartridges. The game’s finding came as no surprise to James Heller, a former Atari manager who was invited by the production to the dig site. He says in 1983 the company tasked him with finding an inexpensive way to dispose of 728,000 cartridges they had in a warehouse in El Paso, Texas. After a few local kids ran

into trouble for scavenging and the media started calling him about it, he decided to pour a layer of concrete over the games. “I never heard about
again it until June 2013, when I read an article about E.T. being excavated,” he remembers. He was not aware of the controversy and never spoke
out “because nobody asked.” The documentary about the search is being developed by companies including Xbox Entertainment Studios, and the film is expected to be released later this year on Microsoft’s Xbox game consoles. The city of Alamogordo agreed to give the documentarians 250 cartridges, or 10 percent of the cartridges found, whichever is greater. Mayor Susie Galea hopes this brings more tourists to this southeastern New Mexico town that is home to an Air Force base and White Sands National Monument. “Lots of people just pass through, unfortunately,” she said. The “E.T.” game is among the factors blamed for the decline of Atari and the collapse in the U.S. of a multi-million-dollar video game industry that didn’t bounce back for several years. With the whether-or-not
E.T. was buried in Alamogordo controversy solved, the other, subtler debate remains. Was it the worst game ever unleashed on gamers? Tina Amini, deputy editor at gaming website Kotaku, says the game tanked because “it was practically broken” with that the E.T. falling into traps that were almost impossible to escape and would appear constantly and unpredictably. The game designer, Howard Scott Warshaw, says he does not mind his creation being called that. “It may be a horrible game, but 32 years after, you are here, talking to me about it. It’s a tremendous honor,” that it still generates public discourse. He, however, manages to stress that the company took too long to secure the rights for the game and with Christmas production schedules pressing he was left with just five weeks to design, write and test “the worst game ever.”

‘Begin Again’ film of firsts for Levine, Knightley
NEW YORK (AP) — For Keira Knightley and Adam Levine, their movie “Begin Again” was an experience of firsts. Knightley, an accomplished actress, sings in the movie, whereas Levine, frontman of the band Maroon 5, acts. The two admitted that leaving their comfort zones made them uneasy but that they related to each other’s nerves. “I kept telling her she was great and she wouldn’t believe me, and she told me that I wasn’t bad at acting either but I didn’t believe her, so it was per fect,” Levine said Saturday as the film closed the Tribeca Film Festival. “I was completely terri-
fied,” Knightley, 29, emphasized of her singing. “I didn’t anticipate being as frightened as I was. I said yes to doing it and I was, ‘Oh, it’s gonna be fine, it’s gonna be fine,’ and then suddenly I found myself in a studio with real people who did it for a living and I was like, ‘I don’t know what I’m doing. I’m pretending.”’ To walk a red carpet for his first acting role, Levine, 35, said he was “blown away.” Levine says he enjoyed the experience so much he might have caught the acting bug. “My experience was so much fun,” he said. “It made me kind of start to like it a little bit, but I don’t know. I don’t think you can
really make those bold declarations, but we’ll see.” So how did the two grade each other? Knightley called Levine a “natural entertainer” who was “sensational in this film.” Levine, who serves as a judge and mentor on NBC’s singing competition show “The Voice,” said that if Knightley were to audition he would want her on his team. “Begin Again,” is directed by John Carney, who also was behind the successful musical drama “Once.” It also stars Mark Ruffalo, Hailee Steinfeld and Catherine Keener. CeeLo Green also has a small role. The movie opens in the U.S. in July.

NYC eatery sued over plan to move Picasso painting NEW YORK (AP) — New York’s storied Four Seasons restaurant has for decades harbored one of the city’s more unusual artworks: the largest Pablo Picasso painting in the United States. But a plan to move it has touched off a spat as sharply drawn as the bullfight crowd the canvas depicts. Pitting a prominent preservation group against an art-loving real estate magnate, the dispute has unleashed an outcry from culture commentators and a lawsuit featuring dueling squads of art experts. The building’s owner says Picasso’s “Le Tricorne,” a 19-by20-foot painted stage curtain, has to be moved from the restaurant to make way for repairs to the wall behind it. But the Landmarks Conservancy, a nonprofit that owns the curtain, is suing to stop the move. The group says the wall damage isn’t dire and taking down the brittle curtain could destroy it — and, with it, an integral aspect of the Four Seasons’ landmarked interior. “We’re just trying to do our duty and trying to keep a lovely
Cast members Hailee Steinfeld, left, Keira Knightley and Adam Levine attend the premiere of "Begin Again" during the Tribeca Film Festival on Saturday, in New York.
Picasso painted the curtain in 1919 as a set piece for “Le Tricorne,” or “three-cornered hat,” a ballet created by the Paris-based Ballet Russes troupe.
interior landmark intact,” says Peg Breen, president of the conservancy. The landlord, RFR Holding Corp., a company co-founded by state Council on the Arts Chairman Aby Rosen, says a structural necessity is being spun into an art crusade. “This case is not about Picasso,” RFR lawyer Andrew Kratenstein said in court papers. Rather, he wrote, it is about whether an art owner can insist that a private landlord hang a work indefinitely, the building’s needs be damned. “The answer to that question is plainly no.” Picasso painted the curtain in 1919 as a set piece for “Le Tricorne,” or “three-cornered hat,” a ballet created by the Paris-based Ballet Russes troupe. The curtain isn’t considered a masterwork. Breen said it was appraised in 2008 at $1.6 million,
far short of the record-setting $106.5 million sale of a 1932 Picasso painting at a 2010 auction. Still, “it was always considered one of the major pieces of Picasso’s theatrical decor,” says Picasso biographer Sir John Richardson. “And it is sort of a gorgeous image.” The scene depicts spectators in elegant Spanish dress socializing and watching a boy sell pomegranates as horses drag a dead bull from the ring in the background. “Le Tricorne” has been at the Four Seasons since its 1959 opening in the noted Seagram Building. The restaurant, which isn’t affiliated with the Four Seasons hotel a few blocks away, is the epitome of New York power lunching, having served President Bill Clinton, Princess Diana, Madonna and other A-listers.
The curtain hangs in what’s become known as “Picasso Alley,” a corridor that joins the restaurant’s majestically moder n, Phillip Johnson-designed main dining rooms. Some argue that the painting, donated to the Landmarks Conservancy in 2005, is a vital piece of the city’s cultural landscape and the restaurant’s lauded decor. Architecture critic Paul Goldberger decried the curtain’s potential move in Vanity Fair, saying the canvas helps make the Four Seasons “a complete work of art.” Noted architect Robert A.M. Stern and Lewis B. Cullman, an honorary trustee of the Museum of Modern Art, both sent Rosen letters asking him to reconsider removing the curtain. Arts critic Terry Teachout blasted the potential loss of “Picasso’s most readily accessible painting” in The Wall Street Journal. The landlords also have their defenders. In tony Town & Country, arts editor Kevin Conley cast the debate as a misplaced outpouring over a “second-rate
Picasso.” The debate has opened an uncomfortable divide in the city’s preservation circles. The Landmarks Conservancy honored Rosen in 2002 for restoring another important 1950s office building, Lever House, yet now publicly claims the major art collector dismissed the Picasso curtain as a “schmatte,” a Yiddish word for “rag.” “They’ve elevated this into something that it shouldn’t be. ... Everybody says I hate Picasso,” Rosen lamented to The New York Times last month. ‘’But I live with five of them in my home.” Rosen, whose spokesman didn’t return calls from The Associated Press, told The T imes he aims to remove and restore the painting, then decide where it will go. The controversy has drawn a stream of art students, history buffs and other sightseers to look at the canvas. Breen, for one, isn’t surprised. “Most people would be very happy to have the largest Picasso in America hanging in their building,” she said.
VISTAS C Party on the River/Fiesta del Rio returns to Roswell May 3-4 Sunday, April 27, 2014

Family’s decision typical of ‘sandwich generation’ Q: We’re considering taking my elderly mother into our home, rather than placing her in a nursing facility. This decision is especially difficult because we still have three children living with us. Would this new arrangement impact family dynamics? Jim: In a big way — and you should be prepared for blessings, as well as challenges. On the plus side, you’ll have the emotional and practical support of your family as you take on the weighty task of meeting your mother’s needs. There’s also the potential of realizing a strong sense of family unity and cohesiveness as you share in the caregiving responsibilities.

will at times be caught in between the competing needs of your kids and your mother, while your own needs frequently take a backseat. This is what people have in mind when they talk about the “sandwich generation.” There’s obviously a lot here to pray about as you consider the equally legitimate questions of your responsibility to your mom and your family’s wellbeing. In short, there are no simple solutions to the challenges you’ll face if you take her in. It will involve a delicate balancing act and place you in a position where you will have no choice except to rely on the grace and wisdom of the Lord from one moment to the next.

Q: My teenagers often go to films that have racy content. My heart tells me that it’s probably not a good thing, but I have nothing more to go on than that. Can you help? Bob Waliszewski, Director, Plugged In: I recently received an email from a young man who explained how his struggle with lust was linked to his television and movie choices, and not surfing inappropriate Internet sites. He’s not alone. Hollywood has become a super-teacher to an untold large number of young people. As Tinseltown instills its own brand of sexual “values” via motion pictures, young people are embracing what they’re being taught. This isn’t simply my opinion; mounting research is saying the same thing.
I believe that your teenagers already have a tough fight in guarding their hearts and minds without consuming risque media. Once, after a speaking engagement, a young man came up to me to argue for a film that I had labeled as inappropriate. His view was that the “art” trumped content. My response was to completely ignore the acting and special effects. Instead, I asked him if a certain sex scene

Embrace and its community partn er s i ncl ud in g C ha ves C ou n ty Health Planning Council, La Familia Mental Health Services, the Salvation Army, ENMU-Roswell, the NM Department of Health, Grace Community Church, and the United Way have been working to assure that gaps in services and support for the homeless were slowly and sur ely addr essed. Those initiatives include an Outreach Clinic located at 809 West Alameda that is open four ½ days monthly and staffed by volunteer physicians who provide primary
care services for individuals who are have no access to health care and no way to pay for their healthcare. Appointments are made by calling 625-6975. A d di tio na ll y, a vir t u al on lin e resource directory is being created using the 211 system hosted by United Way of Chaves County with collaboration from Grace Communit y C hu r ch , EN MU- R oswell, a nd Embrace Inc. That system should be completely operational and linked to the majorit y o f co mm un i ty a gen cies f or access to “real-time” resource inform a tio n by Ju n e 20 1 4 . T h is wil l allow access to resource informat i on by c alli ng 2 1 1 o r t h r ou gh access to web-based infor mation system that will be available for every agency in Roswell. Most importantly, coordinated services have been initiated under Embrace Inc to provide resources directly for homeless individuals and families. This includes a clothing and supply closet at 809 West Alameda with emphasis on free coats, blankets, gloves, shoes, socks and supplies for those who live outdoors; assistance with interim lodging costs for homeless individuals during times of extreme cold and for those who are in housing transition; and case management assistance for homeless individuals including initiation of enrollment for food stamps and assistance in obtaining Social Security benefits. Embrace is now working on interim shelter options that can be made available for homeless individuals. The plan entails the creation of a shelter that will open at 5 p.m. daily and close at 9 a.m. each morning. A warm evening meal and morning meal plus lodging will be provided for up to 20 individuals during the evening and night hours. Showers and laundry would be
available along with support services including case management and assistance with access to services. During the daytime hours, clients will be directed to food resources along with linking services to jobs, adult basic education services, and educational opportunities including employability skills training. E m b r ace an d it s p ar tn er s ar e working on a long-term planning project to create a Salvation Army Red Shield program in Roswell that will finally bring a long-term homeless center to Roswell. Donations from the Give Grande N M cam p aign t hat ar e d ir ect ed toward the Homeless Initiative will be used to support the Outreach Clinic and to assist with the creat ion of an over n igh t Hom eles s Shelter.

Old Timers Balloon Rally, Golf Ball Drop planned Roswell Daily Record
Shannon Seyler Special to the Record
that a few balloon sponsorships are still available. A $300 local sponsorship includes a balloon ride for two, a T-shirt, and pin, a basket banner that will fly on the balloon, and invitations to weekend festivities. Commercial sponsorships are $600. The event’s presenting sponsor is Toyota of Roswell. Proceeds from the rally, which come from the sponsorships, will benefit regional causes. This includes funding a New Mexico Military Institute scholarship, scholarships for Roswell High School and Goddard High School seniors, and a donation to the Balloon Explorium in Albuquerque, a scientific educational project involving ballooning. Hot air balloons are not only a delight for pilots and spectators alike, but also for the local economy. Bill Glenn says, “This rally is great for the community. It’s about more than colorful balloons. It’s also about bringing money and people into Roswell. Not only do pilots and their families come here and spend money in local shops, hotels and restaurants, but so do balloon fans and tourists.” For more information about the Old Timers Balloon Rally, contact Mike Holstun at 624-5484 or 420-6326 (cell).
It won’t be space aliens, but hot air balloons filling the Roswell skies during the 27th annual Old Timers Balloon Rally. Balloon pilots will be coming not only from the New Mexico cities of Roswell, Artesia, Capitan, Cloudcroft, Socorro, Corrales, Las Cruces, Santa Cruz, Los Lunas, Rio Rancho, Albuquerque, Mesa, Lovington and Alamagordo, but also from Colorado, Texas, Missouri, Arizona and even the United Kingdom. Over 65 balloons are expected at this year’s rally, which will be held on the weekend of May 3-4, 2014, coinciding with the Party on the River. “When all of the balloons come together, it really is an amazing sight,” says Mike Holstun, president of the Old Timers Balloon Club, the group sponsoring the rally. He says that the theme for this year’s rally is “Experience Color in Flight.’” Several balloons will also be appearing at selected local elementary schools on Friday morning. During the rally on Saturday and Sunday, balloon inflation will take place at the Cielo Grande Recreation Area at the 2000 block of West College, on the south side of the soccer fields. Admission to the morning launches is free. Holston says, “It’s great to be partnering with the Party on the River again. This is our second year to hold the rally in conjunction with the Party on the River.” On both Saturday and Sunday, balloons will be taking off at approximately 6:45 in the morning, although as Bill Glen, a pilot coordinator for the rally, explains, “Flight time for balloons is really weather dependent. If the weather isn’t quite right, the time could be altered slightly.” Because of the necessity of factoring in weather conditions, inflation times are approximate. Bill Glen now lives in Arizona, but is a for mer longtime Roswell resident. He retired from the Roswell Independent School District, and has two sons, both balloon pilots themselves, who are Roswell High School graduates. When asked how he became involved with hot air balloons, Glen remarks that in the 1970s, he had served as a volunteer at a balloon event in Albuquerque and never looked back. “It was a such a great experience that I found myself completely hooked.” One of his sons, Michael Glen, became the world’s first paraplegic hot air balloon pilot, and is now a motivational speaker who uses ballooning as a means of reaching out to individuals with disabilities. Each balloon, much like a ship, has its own name. A few of the many balloons scheduled to appear at the rally are “Seeking Nirvana” from Corrales, “Phobia In Flight” from Artesia, “Good Grief” from Albuquerque, “Bag O’ Wind II” from Lubbock, TX and “Gottaluvit” from Miller, MO. The unique names and brilliant colors of the balloons are just a small part of what makes ballooning so fun and intriguing. Spectators are invited to bring their cameras to the balloon launches, and will also have an opportunity to visit with crews, pilots and sponsors. For a unique handson experience, local volunteers are still being sought to help with the balloons. If you’d like to participate, get in touch with Andrea Regalado at (575) 317-0767.
First Tee Golf Ball Drop
The First Tee of the Pecos Valley, in conjunction with the Old T imers Balloon Rally, will be sponsoring a golf ball drop at the Cielo Grande Recreation Area on Saturday, May 3, 2014. The ticket price for the event is a $10 donation to The First Tee. Contestants will be competing for prizes, including a $1,500 grand prize. Additional prizes include a 50” LED big screen TV, an Apple iPad and a $250 gift card to Sam’s Club. Adrienne Fields, executive director of The First Tee of the Pecos Valley, explains that 1,000 numbered golf balls with tickets corresponding to each ball will be dropped over the Cielo Grande Recreation Area from hot air balloons that will be flying during the Old Timers Balloon Rally. A golf hole will be drilled into the ground with a flag stick attached. The numbered balls landing nearest (or in) the hole will win prizes. The balls will be dropped after the balloons are fully in flight, with an estimated time of roughly 8:00 in the morning. Contestants need not be present to win. “The golf ball drop is a good community event,” says Fields, “and the prizes are wonderful. Also, the proceeds will be going toward a very worthwhile cause.” The First Tee is a not-for-profit organization created in 1997 by the World Golf Foundation, and has served over 9 million young people to date. Its primary focus is on the development of youth. President George Bush - both of them - have served as honorary chairmen. There are roughly 180 chapters of The First Tee, including the one in Roswell. The First Tee helps foster character building through the game of golf. Youth who might not otherwise be introduced to golf are given access to not only golfing equipment, but to other opportunities as well, including after-school and summer programs. The First Tee uses golf to reinforce its Nine Core Values: honesty, integrity, sportsmanship, respect, confidence, responsibility, perseverance, courtesy, and judgment. Addressing the core value of honesty, Fields remarks, “Golf is a game in which honesty comes first. After all, golfers call penalties on themselves, pointing out
This will be the Old T imers Balloon Rally’s 27th consecutive event, and commemorative merchandise will be available for purchase. Mike Holstun also points out

their own flaws. There’s no room for dishonesty in golf, or in life. This basic lesson is just one of many crucial life lessons that can be imparted to young people through golf. Our young people aren’t just learning skills and conduct for a game, but for life.” Golf, as a game which emphasizes courtesy, sportsmanship and composure, has proven to be an effective vehicle for reaching young people. The First Tee also teaches a set of nine healthy habits and a code of conduct.
The First Tee of the Pecos Valley was established in 2005 for youth ranging in age from 5-17, and operates from the New Mexico Military Institute Golf Course. Programs associated with the group include the LPGA Girls’ Golf program, summer camps and the First Tee National School Program.

Lake to release a third of its bountiful water
SANTA ROSA — Santa Rosa Dam is about to release nearly one third of its water down the Pecos River, but plenty more will remain in the lake for boaters and fisher men because of the historic high water levels since last summer’s storms. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has announced a block release of about 30,000 acre feet of water will take place over a 14day period, starting April
23, reducing Santa Rosa Lake’s elevation by nearly 10 feet, from 4,744.35 feet to 4,734.97 feet. According to Curtis McFaden, Pecos Basin Coordinator for the Corps of Engineers, the release is being done for two reasons: to satisfy a request from the Carlsbad Irrigation District, which owns the rights to water stored in the dam, and to replenish supplies in Brantley Reservoir that are being sent downstream
to satisfy part of a water settlement with the neighboring Texas. A water release also is scheduled from Sumner Lake, likely starting on April 24, McFadden said. The volume being released from Santa Rosa Dam sounds massive, especially since it represents many times what the entire lake held at this time just a year ago. But after storms affiliated with Santa Rosa’s massive hail storm on July
Mustangs need a home
ESPAÑOLA — A local nonprofit is struggling to feed several horses after getting booted off a Northern New Mexico ranch. Monero Mustang’s founder Sandi Claypool is looking to house approximately 70 Monero Mustangs that up until recently, were allowed to roam freely throughout the 5,000-acre Yellow Hills Ranch the group leased near Tierra Amarilla. Monero Mustangs are descendants of the original Spanish El Rito mustangs. The strain is kept alive by selectively breeding horses to produce genetically pure descendants of the original Spanish mustang. Claypool said she and the horses became displaced when the ranch’s owners locked her off the land following an undisclosed dispute. The lockout represented several months where she wasn’t able to feed or water the animals. Claypool declined to share the conflict’s details because she said she is preserving her remaining energy to look after the horses. “I am not going into that,” she said. “I am exhausted from hauling water and feed.” Since Claypool was reunited with her horses a few months ago, she has been working tirelessly to find temporary shelter for about 70 of the 100-plus mustangs she looked after on the ranch. “I got my horses last fall and I had them in temporary winter pastures,” Claypool said. But as you know, winter ended early this year.” The early arrival of winter meant Claypool needed another spot for the animals to graze because the temporary pasture proprietors needed the grasslands back so their livestock could eat. Documentary filmmaker Donna Wells featured Claypool and her horses in a documentary she wrote and produced titled, “She Had Some Horses.” Wells said the film’s overarching goal was to capture the relationship many women have with their horses. She said she got involved with the project because, as a horse owner, she understands the bond Claypool has with the animals. “I have a horse,” she said, “so I understand the heartfelt connection between women and horses.” Wells said she wants to help find the animals a more comfortable living arrangement. About 20 Monero mares are headed to Arizona, but some are pregnant and have
to stay until after they give birth to their foals, Wells said. She said they hope to place about 25 more mustangs within the next few months. “Meanwhile, funds are desperately needed for hay and the transportation costs that will be incurred when these animals are shipped out,” Wells added. Claypool also has several young horses Wells believes would make great companions. “There are some youngsters in the herd that are available for adoption to approved homes,” Well said. She said the nonprofit would adopt out entire family bands of 5 to 10 older horses to those with enough space to care for the animals. Claypool said her separation from the ranch is rooted in simple economics. “The ranch was going down and they saw the horses were bringing in money,” she said. “So the people (ranch employees) convinced them to get rid of me and keep the horses and put all the money in their pockets.” When Monero Mustangs was in operation, nonprofit personnel would conduct guided tours. Tour-goers would pay $100 per person for a five-hour guided tour and $50 per person for a two-hour guided tour. Before Monero Mustangs hung up their reins, nearly 150 horses roamed the ranch surrounded by meadows and forested hilltops. Claypool and her mother Ila Broomberg founded the horse sanctuary hoping to preserve El Rito mustangs, a breed native to Jarita Mesa Wild Horse Territory. The ranch became a nonprofit following Broomberg’s 2003 death. Claypool no longer calls the nonprofit a sanctuary because under new Livestock Board rules, a sanctuary has less autonomy. The U.S. Forest Service began rounding up the area’s wild horses to address many ranchers’ concerns about the horses overgrazing the lands. Many of the horses came from lands where they were being reduced for various reasons. Claypool said unfortunately, many of those horses are heading to California, leaving the land they called home for years. Yellow Hills didn’t respond to phone calls or emails as of press time. For more information, call 575-7568674.
THE GILA LISTED AMONG ‘AMERICA’S MOST ENDANGERED RIVERS’
SILVER CITY — The Gila River is included in a list of “America’s Most Endangered Rivers,” due to proposals to divert, store and pump water from the stream. The nonprofit organization American Rivers compiled the list, which has been updated every year since 1986. According to the organization, its report “underscores the problems that arise for communities and the environment when we drain too much water out of rivers.' The report states that Gila diversions would put river health, fish and wildlife, recreation and tourism “at risk.” “The Gila … is rich in biological diversity and cul-
tural history,” American Rivers staffers wrote. “(It) supports healthy riverside forests, cold-water fisheries and a remarkable abundance of wildlife. The river is critical to the long-term health of these wild ecosystems.
“The Gila’s forests provide high-quality bird habitat, supporting one of the highest concentrations of breeding birds in America (including the endangered Southwestern willow flycatcher, threatened yellow billed cuckoo, and other species unique to the region … the common Blackhawk, Montezuma quail and elf owl),” the report states. It goes on to describe the river’s fish species, includ-
ing the federally endangered loach minnow, the spike dace and the threatened Gila trout.
“The Gila provides significant economic value to the region in terms of unparalleled opportunities for outdoor recreation, naturebased travel and wilderness experience,' American Rivers wrote.
The organization termed proposed water diversion and piping projects “expensive and unnecessary.” It called on Gov. Susana Martinez to “ensure that her Interstate Stream Commission consider and implement cheaper and more ef fective non- diversion alternatives to meet southwest New Mexico’s watersupply needs.”
3, 2013, and then the even bigger regional floods starting Sept. 11, 2013, Santa Rosa Lake’s water levels rose past 100,000 acre feet and the maximum allowable storage levels. Seven months since then, the lake was holding just under 95,000 acre feet as of April 16, and even after the planned release the pool will be nearly 65,000 acre feet — still high by recent standards. “We still have boat-ramp

access with around 15,000 to 16,000 acre feet of water, so we’ll still have plenty of recreational activities there,” McFadden said. Last year’s flooding was fresh on officials’ minds last week, as they met in Santa Rosa to plan for future “table-top” exercises to prepare an emergency reaction in the event of various types of scenarios involving uncontrolled releases of water from the
Among the scenarios, government agencies want to be prepared for “another September-like event that keeps on going,” causing flooding down the Pecos River into Santa Rosa and other communities, or an unexpected dam breech, he said. “It gets the community there prepared in the event that actually occurs,” he said.
Manda Lynn Wilson and Andrew James Olivas
John L. Wilson of Roswell and Nancy and Andrew T. Olivas of Las Cruces announce the wedding of their daughter, Manda L ynn Wilson to Andrew James Olivas, son of Brenda Olivas of Roswell.

After they are married, Manda and Andrew will reside in Las Cruces where they both work and attend classes at Dona Ana Community College.
REGIONAL ROUNDUP City speaking out against sexual assault
LORDSBURG — In recognition of Sexual Assault Awareness Month, Mayor Arthur Clark Smith signed a proclamation that points to the adverse effects that rape, sexual assault and sexual harassment have on the community. But the City is going further than that on this issue. The Lordsburg Police Department is beefing up training for of ficers, including Of ficer Maria Sanchez’s attendance at a four -day Child First course at New Mexico State University. The refresher course will educate Sanchez on forensic interviewing of children who have been assaulted or abused. “This is a very important issue in our community,” the mayor said, “and the City will continue to do whatever possible to prevent it and create a safer environment for all citizens.” Statistics show that one in six boys and one in four girls will experience sexual assault before age 18.
Case of student’s murder still unsolved
SILVER CITY — The brutal murder of Western New Mexico University student Roberto Armando Benavidez Garcia, 22, of Hurley, occurred two years ago on April 20. The case remains unsolved. Roberto never returned to his mother’s home after walking down the street in the dark to find his dog, which had escaped from his mother’s yard. The aspiring artist’s body was found a short time later lying in the middle of the street. The autopsy report listed the manner of Roberto’s death as undetermined, but stated the cause of death was “multiple blunt force traumas of the head and neck.” Hurley Police Chief Pete Ordonez told the Daily Press the case has officially been turned over to the Grant County Sherif f’s Department. “The case is active and we are actively working it,’ Sherif f Raul Villanueva said. “During the last few months, we have had some information come in,

3-year-old girl shot in Wal-mart parking lot
ESPAÑOLA — A 3-yearold girl was wounded April 10 following a brief gun battle between the occupants of a gold Chrysler four -door sedan and a white Ford Explorer in the parking lot of Wal-Mart. The sound of five gunshots were first reported at 9:57 p.m., according to E911 Center dispatch logs. The casings were recovered and a door at the store was also damaged. Española Police Det. Cpl. Solomon Romero said he believes a total of seven shots were fired. The father of the injured girl told dispatchers he heard the shots fired when he was in the parking lot and his daughter started to cry. At the time, he thought she was only startled by the noise. When he got her home, he found she was bleeding from her left leg and he found two holes in her thigh, near her knee, presumably an entrance and an exit wound, logs state. The girl was flown to a hospital in Albuquerque, Romero said.
Senior center plan being re-evaluated
FOR T SUMNER — The Fort Sumner Village Council is reconsidering a plan to convert the Peers In Touch (PIT) youth center into a senior citizens’ center. During last week’s regular meeting of the Village Council, Mayor Justin Ingram said he has begun preliminary talks with state officials about the possibility of reauthorizing grant and legislative funds awarded in 2013 for the remodeling of the PIT. In his first meeting as Mayor in March, Ingram had questioned the feasibility of remodeling the PIT because of the age and construction of the building, which for years was the home of the Village Country Store. Since then, Ingram said he has been discussing the project with State Sen. Stuart Ingle, R-Portales, and Department of Finance and Administration officials, as well as with representatives of the project’s architectural
firm, Wilson and Company Inc. Ingram said the cost of bringing the PIT structure up to state electrical code could consume most of the $525,000 in grant and legislative funds awarded the Village for the project.
Village joins county seat’s chamber
CARRIZOZO — Village of Capitan trustees have joined the Carrizozo Chamber of Commerce and authorized $2,000 toward the chamber’s regional “True Enchantment Tour” advertising campaign — all with hopes of bringing in more tourism dollars to this “True West” area. The Carrizozo is seeking monetary support for their application for a $15,000 grant from the New Mexico tourism department’s New Mexico True campaign. The matching grant would help finance a regionalized tourism advertising campaign, with emphasis on the communities and municipalities outside of Ruidoso.
Stream runoff nearly nonexistent
SILVER CITY — The Silver City area re ceived less than 50 percent of the typical amount of pre cipitation during the winter, resulting in nearly nonexistent stream runoff this spring. According to the New Mexico office of the U.S. De partment of Agriculture’s Nat ural Resources Conservation Service, rain and snow from Oct. 1 to April 1 provided just 44 percent of normal moisture levels in the Gila and San Francisco river basins. The total was 42 percent in the Mimbres basin. The snowpack at measuring stations in high-el evation locations of the Gila National Forest was limited to a few inches, even in the middle of winter. At last report, only the station at McKnight Cabin was recording measurable snow (less than one-third of an inch). “This is the fourth winter in a row with disap pointing mountain snowpack and statewide precipi tation across New Mexico,” NRCS staff wrote.

DEAR ABBY UNIVERSAL PRESS SYNDICATE
DEAR ABBY: Child abuse is epidemic in the United States. It occurs at every socioeconomic level, across ethnic and cultural levels, within all religions and at all levels of education. Every year, more than 3 million reports of child abuse are made in the U.S. Without intervention, about 30 percent of those abused and neglected children will later abuse their own children. With the proper skills, all parents can raise happy, healthy children. Treatment is necessary, but our communities also need
to do a better job at prevention. April is Child Abuse Prevention Month. Please ask your readers to learn about programs and activities in their communities that support parents and promote healthy families.
JOHN E. THORESEN, DIRECTOR, BARBARA SINATRA CHILDREN’S CENTER, RANCHO MIRAGE, CALIF.
DEAR MR. THORESEN: Thank you for your letter. Readers, the first step to curbing child abuse is recognizing it. These are the 10 most common indicators: 1. UNEXPLAINED INJURIES: Visible signs may include burns or bruises in the shape of objects. There may be unconvincing explanations for a child’s injuries. 2. CHANGES IN BEHAVIOR: Abused children often appear scared, anxious, depressed, withdrawn or more aggressive. 3. RETURNING TO EARLIER BEHAVIOR: Abused children may
The Wizard of Id
display behaviors shown when they were younger, such as thumb-sucking, bed-wetting, fear of the dark or strangers. For some, loss of basic language or memory problems may occur. 4. FEAR OF GOING HOME: Abused children may express fear or anxiety about leaving school or going places with the abuser. 5. CHANGES IN EATING: The stress, fear and anxiety lead to changes in a child’s eating behaviors, which may result in weight gain or weight loss. 6. CHANGES IN SLEEP HABITS: The child may have frequent nightmares or have difficulty falling asleep, and appear tired or fatigued. 7. CHANGES IN SCHOOL PERFORMANCE OR ATTENDANCE: Children may demonstrate difficulty concentrating in school or experience excessive absences, sometimes because of adults trying to hide the children’s injuries from authorities. 8. LACK OF PERSONAL
CARE OR HYGIENE: The child may appear unkempt, be consistently dirty and have severe body odor, or lack sufficient clothing for the weather.
9. RISK-TAKING BEHAVIORS: The child may engage in high-risk activities such as using drugs or alcohol, or carrying a weapon.
10. INAPPROPRIATE SEXUAL BEHAVIOR: A sexually abused child may exhibit overly sexualized behavior or use explicit sexual language.
We can all support children and parents to reduce the stress that often leads to abuse and neglect. Be a friend to a parent or child you know. Volunteer your time or donate to programs that support child abuse treatment and prevention as well as those that build healthy families. Trust your instincts. Suspected abuse is enough of a reason to contact authorities.

Big riders mean big horses on Western trails BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Wranglers in the West who have for decades cashed in on the allure of getting on a horse and setting out on an open trail say they have had to add bigger horses to their stables to help carry larger tourists over the rugged terrain. The ranches say they are using draft horses, the diesels of the horse world, in ever greater numbers to make sure they don’t lose out on income from potential customers of any size who come out to get closer to the West of yesteryear. “Even though a person might be overweight, or, you know, heavier than the average American, it’s kind of nice we can provide a situation where they can ride with their family,” said wrangler T. James “Doc” Humphrey. Humphrey’s 10-gallon hat, goatee, black vest and spurs are a tourist favorite at Sombrero Ranches, east of Rocky Mountain National Park, where they have 20 draft horses, including Belgians and Percherons, and 25 draft horses mixes. Ranch operators say they began adding the bigger horses in the 1990s, but the pace has picked up in recent years. Over the last 20 years, obesity has increased to more than a third of adults and about 17 percent of children age 2 to 19, according to federal statistics. “I think it’s wonderful that these people are looking to accommodate people of larger body size,” said Peggy Howell, spokeswoman for the National Association to Advance Fat Acceptance, adding that more businesses should become “size savvy.” “People of larger body size enjoy athletic activities just as much as people with what’s considered nor mal body size,” she said. Draft horses fell out of favor as machines took
over pulling farm equipment in the mid-20th century, said Elaine Beardsley the Ohio-based of Percheron Horse Association of America. Registered Percherons reached a low of 86 in 1953, and are now at 1,000. The bigger horses have allowed outfitters to eliminate weight limits. “I felt bad about telling people they’re too big to ride,” said Russ Little of Dry Ridge Outfitters, which offers rides at Harriman State Park in Idaho. Eight of the 45 horses he has are part Percherons. He said a 225-pound weight limit these days would cost him $6,000 a season. At Chico Hot Springs in Montana, Heidi Saile of Rockin’ HK Outfitters said she and her husband, Kipp, removed the stable’s 225-pound limit last year when they took over from different outfitters. She said the limit would cost her $4,000 in lost revenue. “Little horses just aren’t sturdy enough to hold up in a dude operation in the Rocky Mountains,” Kipp Saile said, noting that about 15 of their 60 horses were Percheron mixes, the largest weighing 1,800 pounds. At Sombrero in Estes Park, Colo., general manager Bryan “Kansas” Seck said they began making the transition to draft horses years ago because of rugged mountainous terrain and strength to carry a rider for longer periods of time. But the larger horses also allowed them to eliminate their weight limit. The heaviest rider Seck ever put on a horse was 399 pounds. “As long as you can get on a horse, you can ride,” he said. Laura Ewing of Baltimore noted that the horses back East are small and she was somewhat con-

“Because I’m a little heavier I rode a larger horse,” Ewing said. “I was a little bit concerned at first, but when I saw the size of the horses that they have here, they’re pretty hardy horses ... They’re not ponies.”
Another rider, who weighed 240 pounds, rode 1,800-pound Bam Bam, a brown Belgian draft horse with furry legs and a size 5 horseshoes — the smaller, traditional quarter-horses of about 1,000 pounds wear a 0 to 1. They rode up the trails dotted with elk, deer and chipmunks and breathtaking views of Longs Peak.
Like Little, the Sailes prefer Percheron draft horses because of their easygoing dispositions. However, larger horses are more expensive. They eat more, require larger doses of medications and at about $150 cost twice as much to put horseshoes on. But unlike regular-sized riding horses that have

seven months off after the tourist season, Little said, Percheron mixes can work most of the year, carrying elk and moose hunters into the backcountry in the fall and pulling wagons with tourists in the winter.
“You just feel better about having a big person on a big horse,” Little said.
Desperate Rohingya kids flee alone by boat
SITTWE, Myanmar (AP) — The two children stood on the beach, torn between land and sea. They couldn’t go back to their tiny Muslim village in Myanmar’s northwest Rakhine because it had been burned down by an angry Buddhist mob. In the chaos, they became separated from their family and gave up hope of finding them alive after seven months of searching. The only way was forward. Hungry and scared, Mohamad Husein, 15, and his sister Senwara Begum, 9, climbed on board a rickety boat crammed with others fleeing home. They had no way of knowing they were among hundreds, if not thousands, of ethnic Rohingya children who have left Myanmar by sea since the country was first gripped by sectarian violence two years ago, or that they were joining one of the world’s biggest boat exoduses since the Vietnam War. Despite pleas from the United Nations, which considers members of the religious minority among the most persecuted groups on earth, nearby countries shove them back to sea or bar them altogether. “The sense of desperation and hopelessness is growing,” warned Vivian Tan of the U.N. Refugee Agency. About 1.3 million Rohingya live in Myanmar, a predominantly Buddhist country of 60 million that only recently emerged from decades of military rule. The government considers them illegal immigrants from neighboring Bangladesh, though some families have lived here for generations. Since the transition to democracy began three years ago, Buddhist mobs have killed up to 280 Rohingya and forced more than 140,000 others from their homes. The violence, which first flared in mid-2012,

has forced about 75,000 people to flee, according to Chris Lewa of the non-profit Arakan Project. Nearly 2,000 people have died or gone missing at sea during that time, she added. And women and children now make up 5 percent to 15 percent of those leaving, The Associated Press reported the children’s story based on interviews and data from Myanmar, Indonesia, Malaysia and Thailand. Their small boat was packed with 63 people, including 14 children and 10 women. They baked in the sun and vomited from the waves. Nearly two weeks passed, and then a boat with at least a dozen Myanmar soldiers approached. They kicked and bludgeoned
the Rohingya men with wooden planks and iron rods, several passengers said. “Tell us, do you have your Allah?” one Rohingya survivor quoted the soldiers as saying. “There is no Allah!” They tied Mohamad’s hands and lit a match, laughing as the smell of burnt flesh wafted from his blistering arm. Senwara watched helplessly. The beatings finally stopped after Mohamad suspected money changed hands, and the soldiers ordered the boat to leave. The government said the Navy denied seizing any ships during that period. The ship plodded on, but it was falling apart. A sarong stuffed in a hole could not stop water from bubbling through, and Senwara’s sticky rice and bits of bread were gone. When
they finally floated ashore in Thailand, she had no idea where she was.
Up until a few years ago, Thailand towed migrants out to sea and left them, often with little or no food, water or fuel. But after an uproar, Thai authorities began giving basic supplies to migrants before sending them on.
Sometimes, however, they direct the boats to traffickers, according to human rights groups. Those who cannot raise ransoms often escape or are sold as slaves onto fishing vessels.
Royal Thai Navy spokesman Rear Adm. Karn Dee-ubon said the navy always follows humanitarian principles, but added that other Thai agencies could be involved.
