Fraud case tossed over investigator’s conduct
SANTA FE (AP) — The state Court of Appeals has upheld the dismissal of a Medicaid fraud case as a sanction for the attorney general’s of fice creating and using a false document in pursuing claims against a health care company. Phil Sisneros, a spokesman for Attor ney General Gary King, said Wednesday the office hasn’t decided whether to appeal the ruling to the state Supreme Court. “However, we do believe a complete
dismissal of the fraud case was not the correct and just way to go,” Sisneros said in a statement. In a ruling on Monday, the Court of Appeals affirmed an Albuquerque district judge’s decision in 2011 to dismiss the fraud claims and prevent the case from being refiled. The court said the judge “was presented with severe misconduct, prejudicial to the administration of justice. The circumstances are ironic in that the state was prosecuting a claim of
fraud using created, false documents to do so.” At issue were letters an attorney general’s investigator had prepared by an agency to show when criminal background checks were completed for caregivers of Advantageous Community Services, an Albuquerque company that provided home-based health care services. The letters weren’t copies of the originals from 2006, but were recreated at the request of the investigator from the Health Depart-
ment’s computer records because the agency no longer kept paper copies and couldn’t reprint an exact copy of the originals. The department provided an explanation to the investigator for differences in the letters, but the investigator didn’t provide that infor mation to the assistant attorney general prosecuting the case or tell the prosecutor that the documents weren’t authentic copies. Information was correct about the names of the

caregivers and the dates they cleared their background checks. But the documents obtained by the investigator had an updated Department of Health letterhead from Gov. Susana Martinez’s administration rather than when Gov. Bill Richardson was in office in 2006. The text of the letters differed from the originals, and the names of department and company officials also were different. The court said the letters were critical because the
attorney general’s office was pursuing allegations that the company received Medicaid payments for services by caregivers before they obtained proper clearance from the background check.
MENTONE, Texas (AP) — A buildup of pressure caused an explosion as workers were changing a wellhead Wednesday at a We s t T e x a s o i l f i e l d , killing two of them and injuring nine others, a sheriff said. Loving County Sherif f Billy Hopper said authorities received an emergency call before 8:30 a . m . We d n e s d a y a b o u t the explosion some 60 miles southeast of Carlsbad. The two workers who were killed died at the scene, he said. Their names have not been released. Hopper said all of the nine workers who were hurt had minor injuries and did not go to a hospital. It was not clear Wednesday which company operates the oil field, he said. Initial reports indicated the workers were operating an oil rig, but Hopper later clarified they were using heavy machinery to
switch out the wellhead.
Sisneros said the investigator, whose name wasn’t included in the Appeals Court ruling, is voluntarily leaving the attorney general’s of fice next week for another job but the move wasn’t related to the court case.
2 killed, 9 hurt in oil field explosion
“Those wellheads are tremendously heavy pieces of equipment,” he said, explaining they can weigh more than 1,000 pounds.
He said receiving updates from his deputies at the scene was difficult because radio communications are erratic and cell phones don’t work in the rural area. Loving County is the most sparsely populated county in the United States, he said, and many oil fields are in far -flung locations that can be difficult to reach. The energy boom in Texas and other parts of the U.S. is evident in Loving, he said, with fresh oil fields sprouting up.
“This is the first accident we’ve had like this in a b o u t a y e a r, ” H o p p e r said.
Stepfather of slain boy Lovington PD helps injured Roswell officer faces abuse charges
ALBUQUERQUE (AP) — A Bernalillo County grand jury on Wednesday indicted an Albuquerque man on numerous charges related to a deadly child abuse case that has prompted major reforms in the way childabuse cases are investigated in New Mexico. Stephen Casaus, the stepfather of 9-year-old Omaree Varela, is facing six counts of child abuse, two counts of bribery of a witness and one count of tampering with evidence. He was also indicted in an unrelated drug-trafficking case. It wasn’t immediately clear if Casaus had been assigned an attorney. Omaree Varela was found dead at his family’s home on Dec. 27. Police say he was kicked to death by his mother, Synthia Varela-Casaus.
She has pleaded not guilty to more than 20 charges related to the boy’s death.
Prosecutors allege Casaus, 41, allowed the boy to be placed in a situation that December day that ultimately resulted in the child’s death. They say Casaus also acted with reckless disregard for the boy’s safety and health in the weeks leading up to the death, resulting in the child being beaten, burned, bitten and cut. The case set off a firestorm of criticism against Albuquerque police and the state Children, Youth and Families Department for not removing the boy from his home after receiving earlier reports of abuse.

SGMS takes environmental education to the mountains
Sixteen eighth-grade students from Sidney Gutierrez Middle School recently returned from a three-day camping trip in the Sacramento Mountains. As part of an inquiry-based science curriculum, students studied the effects of wildfires and prescribed burns, completed a forest density survey, became proficient at utilizing a global positioning system (GPS) and identified local flora and fauna.
Lawsuit filed in shooting of Hobbs woman
ALBUQUERQUE (AP) — The family of a woman fatally shot by a Texas police officer during a high-speed chase into New Mexico filed a federal lawsuit last week saying agencies violated her constitutional rights.
In papers filed in U.S. District Court in New Mexico, a family lawyer said the Denver City Police Department and the Yoakum County Sheriff’s Office in Texas failed to properly train officers and deputies and violated Amy Reyna’s rights when she was shot after a 20-mile, two-state chase in October.
Reyna, 35, of Hobbs, New Mexico, drove into a southeastern New Mexico pasture and stopped before Denver
Mexican wolf found dead on Arizona reservation
ALBUQUERQUE (AP) — Wildlife managers are investigating the death of a Mexican gray wolf on tribal land in eastern Arizona. The male wolf was found dead at the end of March on the Fort Apache reservation. The animal belonged to one of two packs known to frequent the area. State and federal officials involved in the reintroduction effort say the cause of the wolf’s death remains under investigation. It marks the second wolf death since the beginning of the year. The reintroduction program has been hampered over the years by politics, illegal killings and other factors. Disputes over management of the predators also have spurred numerous legal actions by environmentalists and ranchers.
Forest to impose fire restrictions

City officer Ryan Taylor fired seven shots at her car, authorities said A dash-cam video of the shooting shows Reyna’s car slowly backing away when Taylor fired three times at the car’s engine and four times toward the driver’s seat. Reyna was pronounced dead at the scene. “Taylor’s conduct and the other deputies in this matter are shocking to the conscience and committed with deliberate indifference,” the lawsuit said. No criminal charges have been filed against any officers or deputies in the shooting. An autopsy later revealed that the
Kohrman says the restrictions will start Monday mor ning on the Sandia, Mountainair, Mt. Taylor and Magdalena ranger districts. Kohr man says the drought and increasing fire danger have made the restrictions necessary. That means no campfires expect within developed recreation sites, and smoking will be limited to enclosed vehicles, buildings and developed recreation sites. Kohr man says forest employees regularly assess the dryness of the vegetation by monitoring temperatures, humidity and precipitation. This information will be used to determine how long the restrictions remain in place.

mother of three had methamphetamine in her system. The chase began shortly after Taylor spotted Reyna as a passenger in a car in Denver City. Reyna had felony arrest warrants in Texas and New Mexico, authorities said. Once spotted, the driver jumped out of the car, and Reyna took over the wheel, police said. According to investigators, the high-speed pursuit reached around 100 mph and ended when Reyna crossed into New Mexico and drove off road into a pasture. The Lea County Sheriff’s Department, who participated in the chase, also was named in the lawsuit.

EPA moves forward with plan for power plant
ALBUQUERQUE (AP) — Federal regulators are moving forward with a proposal they say would target some of the oldest pollution in the country by closing part of a New Mexico coal-fired power plant. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has proposed approving a plan negotiated by the agency, Republican Gov. Susana Martinez’s administration
and the state’s largest electric provider, PNM. Wednesday’s announcement kicks of f a 30-day public comment period. The plan aims to curb haze-causing pollution from the San Juan Generating Station in northwester n New Mexico. Critics have long complained that San Juan and other coalfired plants in the Four Corners region have compromised air quality and visibility at national parks in the area.

Desert rescue beacons let immigrants call for help BUENOS AIRES NATIONAL WILDLIFE REFUGE, Ariz. (AP) — Thor n-coated bushes, rock-covered terrain, scorching temperatures. A hissing rattlesnake.
U.S. Border Patrol Tucson Sector Chief Manuel Padilla, right, talks with another agent during a tour in the Buenos Aires National Wildlife Refuge near Sasabe, Ariz., Wednesday.
These are just few of the many perils migrants crossing from Mexico into the souther n Arizona desert encounter every day. And far more of them will attempt to cross this summer, the U.S. Border Patrol predicts.
The agency unveiled its plans Wednesday for dealing with the problem of immigrants dying in the desert, including 10 new beacons that allow
Tankers carrying oil derail, catch fire in Va. LYNCHBURG, Va. (AP) — Multiple CSX train cars carrying crude oil derailed and caught fire Wednesday along the James River, with three tankers ending up in the water and leaking some of their contents, becoming the most recent crash involving oil trains that has safety experts pushing for better oversight. Nearby buildings were evacuated for a time in downtown L ynchburg, but there were no injuries, authorities said. CSX said the train was on its way from Chicago to an unspecified destination when most of the cars on the train were knocked off the tracks. Online photos and videos showed large flames and thick, black smoke right after the crash. The fire bur ned itself out, but authorities were keeping people out of the area. Nicole Gibs, 32, a server at the Depot Grille just across the street from the tracks, said she was waiting on a table when she heard a train that sounded louder than usual. She saw several train cars wobbling, and then one fell over, sparking a fire immediately. Several other cars also toppled “like Tyco trains,” she said. The manager yelled: “Evacuate!” and the restaurant immediately began emptying, with some people in wheelchairs being carried down steps as the fire raged, filling the air with black smoke. The people from the restaurant moved a block away, then two. “You could feel the heat
migrants to call for help at the push of a red button. The agency is also adding new hoisting systems on helicopters to rescue immigrants.
Officials from the Tucson sector on Wednesday gave reporters, gover nment officials and immigration activists a demonstration of the latest tools they have to assist those who cross from Mexico into Arizona and get injured or dehydrated and cannot continue walking. The demonstration was held 20 miles north of the Sasabe port of entry to Mexico, southwest of Tucson, and included a nearly

one-mile hike through rough terrain where migrants often cross.
The border patrol says it sees a steep increase in calls for help coming from its 22 beacons as the summer approaches.
“The smugglers are telling people, ‘oh it’s going to be a short walk, it’s not going to be a big deal,’ when the reality is you’re looking at 114 degree temperatures, this very rugged terrain that you see behind us, and once they cross the border, many times they’re abandoned there and left vulnerable to the elements of the desert,” Tucson sector
chief Manuel Padilla, Jr., said.
The beacons are 30-feettall and solar powered. They have sun reflectors and blue lights on top that are visible for 10 miles. The beacons have signs in three languages that direct users to push a red button that sends out a signal for help. Response times vary from 10 minutes to an hour depending on where the nearest agents are located.
Agents found 194 bodies and rescued 802 people in the desert in fiscal year 2013. There have been about 38 deaths this year, Padilla said.

like you were standing by a campfire,” Gibs said. “It was hot.” Concer n about the safety of oil trains was heightened last July when a runaway oil train derailed and exploded in Lac-Megantic, Quebec, near the Maine border. Forty-seven people died and 30 buildings were incinerated. Canadian investigators said the combustibility of the 1.3 million gallons of light, sweet Bakken crude released in Lac-Megantic was comparable to gasoline. “This is another national wake-up call,” Jim Hall, a former National T ransportation Safety
Board chairman, said of the Lynchburg crash. “We have these oil trains moving all across the United States through communities and the growth and distribution of this has all occurred, unfortunately, while the federal regulators have been asleep.” “This is just an area in which the federal rulemaking process is too slow to protect the American people,” he said. There have been eight significant oil train accidents in the U.S. and Canada in the past year involving trains hauling crude oil, including several that resulted in spectacular fires, according to the safety board.

Grilling chronicle: Weber wins A4 Thursday, May 1, 2014
A new grill lives in the grill sanctuary nine steps from the back door. This is my sixth grill over a 54-year span from age 13. The new grill and its predecessor are both Webers. The 17-year old evicted one sits angled on a slight rise a few steps away, heavily dusted with mulberry pollen. Brand loyalty alert: Nice things will be said about Weber grills. First, some history. Grilling life— doing the actual cooking—started one 1960 day when my dad was out of town. Mom said we were having hamburgers for dinner and I was cooking. Charcoal was the fuel that day. For me, charcoal it remains. The grill, or “cooker” in Oklahoma parlance, was a 1950s product from energy and creativity of some young men in Oklahoma City where we then lived. (I assume men.) They created an
NEW MEXICO PROGRESS
aluminum box mounted on a three-wheel, tricycle-like structure. Fittings, handles for example, were brass. The grills were cast iron or something equally heavy and rust worthy. Everything could be taken apart. The lids, containing charcoal and with a grill pinned in place, could be partly closed to lean on a brace. Meat on a spit could be cooked from all sides. The cooker was never produced. I don’t know why. My dad, the lawyer for the entrepreneurs, got his cooker in lieu of
Roswell Daily Record
cash for his work. This swapping of stuff for fees continued in New Mexico where it often was usually shares in small, highly speculative startup mining companies. Used regularly for more than 50 years, the cooker was given away last fall. Becoming a graduate student living alone and then marrying meant the grilling device turned into a hibachi, “a for m of portable barbecue,” as Wikipedia says. A few years later my first father -in-law, Ken Anderson of Tulsa, visited Albuquerque. The hibachi offended his sense of grilling propriety (or something like that). A Hasty Bake soon appeared. Tulsa-based Hasty Bake is still around. Three elements of the Hasty Bake design are attractive. The V-shaped grills allow grease to flow center, drip into a metal channel and out of the cooker
into a catch-cup. No more dripping grease onto the coals and creating flames. A rectangular structure offers a place to build the fire. The structure can be cranked up and down and pulled out to accommodate adding more charcoal. Cleverness came with flaws. On both my Hasty Bakes, eventually the grease-catching channel warped, the result of all that heat. The crank broke. The result fixed the fire box in one place, propped on a brick. Neither Hasty Bake lasted 17 years. The now-demoted Weber came from my second father -in-law, Mertin Bennett of Shullsburg, Wisc. The least expensive Webers are squashed spheres. Compared to the old, the new Weber has a larger grill diameter (25.5 inches to 21.5). It is farther of f the ground (32 inches to 27.5). Another important differ-
ence is that the lid is heavier. My arthritic, always-painful left shoulder is not happy when I use my left hand to lift. The larger grill diameter allows arraying the coals in a circle with a vacant middle. Thus, for even three or four burgers, the coals need not be directly under the meat. My new Weber was $299 plus shipping from Amazon. With prices to $2,700, Weber offers three models smaller than mine. Hasty Bake prices range to $5,200 with the least expensive at $599. As with the rest of life, tradeoffs exist. Extended cleverness and higher price with the Hasty Bake. Other clever ness and lower price with Weber. My family in Tulsa still uses Hasty Bakes. For elegance, simplicity and price, Weber is the choice.
Stoned toddlers, pot mayhem are Colorado’s wake-up calls As Colorado’s free-for -all marijuana experiment becomes increasingly embarrassing, the state’s House of Representatives voted unanimously Monday on two bills that may give some protection to children and adults who are consuming massive levels of marijuana by mistake. Parents have forever caught children with their hands in cookie jars, or stealing candy from dresser drawers and creative hiding places. Kids seem to possess a genetic predisposition for finding forbidden sweets. Until Colorado legalized dope, the biggest concern was a sugar high. Today, emergency rooms are treating children -- even toddlers -- showing up stoned because they’ve found candy that’s laced with marijuana. All varieties of pot-induced snacks -- including soft drinks that look like soda -- are for sale at recreational pot stores. Few parents adequately secure these snacks. Furthermore, children often visit homes of friends and relatives who haven’t locked up the edible ganja. The stoned-children dilemma has led to national headlines such as this, from USA Today: “Colo. kids getting into parents’ potlaced goodies.” What a stupid-looking image for a state that was long considered enlightened. Even adults are getting into trouble with pot snacks. Levels of THC, the active drug in marijuana, vary greatly by treat. Some standard-sized brownies are designed as four servings or more. When ill-informed users eat the entire snack, they can end up intoxicated beyond anything desired or anticipated. Some hallucinate and lose sense of what’s real. Nineteen-year-old Levy Thamba ate an entire marijuana cookie, intended as several servings, on March 11. After it kicked in, he fell to his death from a Denver hotel balcony. The autopsy listed “marijuana intoxication” as a factor contributing to his death. A Denver man suspected of killing his wife last week had spent $32.70 on Karma Kandy Orange Ginger -- pot-induced candy -- and one pre-rolled joint. Before Kristine Kirk died, she called 911 to report that her husband, Richard Kirk, was hallucinating after he had “taken some marijuana.” On the 911 recording, Kristine Kirk tells the operator her husband was talking about the end of the world and asking her to shoot him. Toward the end of the call, the woman sounded panicked and said her husband was taking a firearm from a safe. The dispatcher heard a gunshot seconds later, and the call went silent. The woman died from a gunshot to her head and police say Richard Kirk admitted in the patrol car to shooting her. To be fair, alcohol also causes people to do stupid things that kill and marijuana rarely results in violence. But alcohol is more understood by society than drug-laced food. Alcohol doesn’t appear to a child as well-known candy. We are seeing significant problems resulting from easy access to pot. One of the bills passed Monday directs the Department of Revenue to determine how much concentrated THC - such as the hash oil used in many edibles -- equals an ounce of leafy pot. One ounce is the legal limit for marijuana leaves and buds. Another bill passed Monday would ban edibles that mimic other foods and candies, which legislators hope will reduce mishaps with kids. Easter Sunday’s public pot extravaganza in Denver, and recent deaths linked to marijuana, are confirming some of our worst reservations about recreational pot. Common-sense regulations from the Legislature may be a good start. But Coloradans need to take a hard, sober look at what we’ve done by passing Amendment 64, while other states need to consider these events before considering legalization. REPRINTED FROM THE COLORADO SPRINGS GAZETTE
As the NRA closed its convention this past weekend, it gave me time to think about how this organization has abused our Constitution’s Second Amendment. In this day and age of murders, school shootings and legal assault rifles in the hands of children, a few changes right here in Roswell could easily be enacted and bring jobs to our community. 1. To own a gun, everyone must be 18 or over.
2. A background check will be made for everyone purchasing a gun. 3. Everyone, including current gun owners, will enroll and pass a gun safety class. These classes will include knowledge of the laws and hands-on practice. 4. After completion of the class, a test will be given. The test will be partly written. The other part will be hands-on in which an actual gun will be used to show competency in gun safety. Each test must be passed at
85 percent proficiency. 5. After successfully passing each test, a gun license will be issued. Those not passing will be allowed to take the classes again. 6. All firearms will be registered with the local police. Tough fines and jail time will be enacted for no license and/or no gun registration. Roswell will be the first town in our nation to enact sane laws to protect one another from illegal guns and illegal gun owners. Other towns and cities will
look to us with renewed interest and inspiration. Jobs will be created to teach classes, proctor the tests and register guns.
Finally, instead of feeling bad and shameful to the nation after the bloodshed at Berrendo Middle School, let us be proactive and safe in our community. Let us show the NRA that we will not bow down to their stupidity.
New guidelines suggest how women can prevent strokes
DEAR DOCTOR K: Do women need to take special precautions to prevent a stroke? DEAR READER: Yes, they do — and a new set of guidelines published earlier this year helps us to understand what those steps should be. The guidelines discuss stroke risk factors that women should consider from adolescence to old age. The first thing that may be surprising about the guidelines is that they include stroke prevention advice for young women. Most strokes occur in older people (women and men). They are unusual in middle-aged and young adults, and even more unusual in childhood. But they do occur, and some young adults are at increased risk for a stroke. Take, for example, young women who are thinking about going on the birth control pill. Oral contraceptives boost the risk of stroke, even in younger women. The risk is greater in oral contraceptives with higher doses of estrogen, but these are prescribed less

frequently today than in the past. The risk of oral contraceptives causing a stroke starts to increase when women reach age 35. How big is the risk? In women with no other factors that also increase the risk of having a stroke (such as high blood pressure or smoking), taking a low-dose estrogen contraceptive about doubles the risk. However, the risk is still small: about 1 out of 10,000 women on oral contraceptives will have a stroke caused by the pills each year. In women over age 35 who also smoke, the risk of stroke increases considerably. I advise such women to avoid using estrogen-containing pills, patches
or devices. I urge that more strongly when the woman has other risk factors for stroke. Indeed, the new guidelines recommend that women have their blood pressure checked before taking oral contraceptives. And they suggest that women reduce other risk factors while taking oral contraceptives. The guidelines note that about one in 12 women develop pre-eclampsia or other blood pressure problems during pregnancy. Untreated preeclampsia can lead to strokes. The guidelines recommend that women who have had pre-eclampsia, or are at risk for developing it, take lowdose aspirin until delivery. Pre-eclampsia disappears after delivery. But women who develop it are more likely to develop high blood pressure later in life, which then puts them at risk for stroke if not properly diagnosed and treated. The guidelines also state that women who have migraines with aura have an increased risk of stroke.
Sally Jo Davis
Women with this condition should stop smoking and consider taking medications to prevent migraines. Atrial fibrillation is a fast and irregular heartbeat. It is also a leading cause of stroke, more so in women than in men. Women with this condition should take a blood-thinning drug to help prevent stroke. The guidelines also recommend that women aged 65 to 79 talk with their doctor about taking a daily baby aspirin (81 milligrams) to reduce the risk of stroke. S o even though strokes can occur in women of all ages, we now know how to reduce the risks considerably.

On the history of museum creation LOCAL
Roswell Daily Record
STEPHEN VOLLMER RMAC ASSISTANT DIRECTOR Today’s museums, like most things, come in all shapes, sizes and types, encyclopedic covering themes to very specialized areas of interest. And, it is not unusual to think of museums like public education, libraries, and even the right to vote as having always been around and available to all, wherever and whenever we want. But, it was not always so and such facilities came about because earlier generations across the country recognized and committed themselves to providing the means, creating an educated and well-informed public through the creation of programs and institutions that enhanced their communities growth. Over the last 150 years, museums in the United States and its diverse regions, as throughout the world, have become the destination points for individuals and groups in search of seeing and experiencing the real, which in the past may have been written about or seen in
print or as commonly seen today on an iPad as data retrieved via a QR or app. And because of the compression of time and space due to technological advances in the contemporary world in which we live, it is at times hard to imagine that 200 years ago the idea of public education was a radical departure from the social norms of the day. But, it was during the 18th century and specifically the Enlightenment that museums begin to evolve out of private collections that were rarely, if ever, opened to the public. Imagine the great museums of Europe that everyone hears about today, the pride and joy of modern

nations, for the most part, were the private collections of the noble class, which never had any intention of sharing with the masses. Of collections, which provided public access, one of the earliest and most notable even today is the Uffizi Palace in Florence, Italy, opened in 1582. This remarkable collection of the de’ Medici family was given to the city-state in 1743, and to this day operates as a municipal museum where people stand in line for hours to enter its doors. From the era of the Renaissance on, many collectors were interested not only in the joy of acquisition and the advancement of knowledge, but in the preservation of their collections with
the understanding that if knowledge was to have any lasting value, it had to be placed in the public domain. In the late 17th century, the first private collection to have a building constructed for it was given by Elias Ashmole, to the Oxford University (England), under the condition that a structure be built to house it. To the present, the Ashmolean Museum is recognized as one of the premier museums in the world. During the Enlightenment, other museums were to follow, including the British Museum, in London. It opened to the public free of charge with the government’s recognition of its responsibility beyond the preservation of collections for general study by the “learned and curios” but that it be of “the use and benefit of the public.” From a different perspective, the Louvre in Paris opened in 1793, “ … for the instruction and gratification of the public,” following the Revolution and confiscation of all crown property in the name of the Republic. In 1773, the Charleston Library Society in South
Carolina organized and proposed the opening of a museum dedicated to the promotion and understanding of agriculture and herbal medicine and Charles Willson Peale opened his Peale Museum in Philadelphia in, 1786. Whereas the great growth of museums in the United States followed the Civil War, the Smithsonian was an exception, evolving out of a gift from the Englishman James Smithson, who, in his bequest, stated he wished to see an institution in the United States that was dedicated to “the increase and diffusion of knowledge among men.” In 1846, the U.S. Congress accepted the gift and legislated support for the U.S. National Museum, which opened in 1858. From the middle of the 19th century onward, industrialization and urban growth contributed to the establishment of municipal museums in tandem with civic pride and the movement for free education. This coincided with the development of an awakening and strengthening national identities by the
many people who not only lived in the U.S., but by the many people who migrated to their new home and took great pride in the opportunity to participate in the nation’s growth. Most of these museums, national and regional that have since followed have expressed in their charters that their purpose is to provide for the public’s wellbeing and good. Founded during the era of the Works Progress Administration, the Roswell Museum and Art Center shares a remarkable legacy with its sister institutions across the country, where concerned citizens banded together to create one of the finest regional museums in the U.S. But, we, too, must thank the visionaries of earlier generations who, through their involved care, dedication, and giving, resulted in the creation of a unique space in which these artistic, historic, and scientific collections provide the visiting public with the opportunity to explore their heritage, which provides for the advancement of knowledge.
growth and minimize root problems, proper soil preparation, loosening soil deeply (1 foot or more) over a large area before planting the tree will help the tree utilize deeper levels of the soil. When planted in compacted soils, tree roots will tend to grow on the surface and damage patios and walls. Tree roots need oxygen in the soil, and compacted soil have little pore space for oxygen and also resists water infiltration to deeper levels. These factors force roots to grow on the surface of the soil. Irrigation that moistens deeply (2 to 3 feet) with surface drying between irrigations will also encourage deeper roots. Mulch over the root
area will also help by keeping the soil moist, conserving water, and reducing recompaction of the soil.
almost any nearby tree or by a replacement tree, but the larger the tree, the greater the potential for root damage. Irrigation and soil preparation techniques can also increase or decrease damage by roots. Management techniques that encourage deeper rooting will help reduce root damage, but may not eliminate it. Smaller trees such as redbuds, hawthorns, desert willows, and similar trees
may cause fewer problems due to their roots. Smaller stature trees have smaller root systems. If you can plant the trees farther from patios and walls, then oaks and Chinese pistache trees may be good choices for replacement. They are good shade trees and some may give excellent autumn color. These trees can cause fewer problems for patios and walls because of the nature of their root systems compared to other large trees, such as cottonwood trees. However, any tree can be problems for septic systems and other utilities if planted too close to these utilities because of their deep roots systems. To maximize good root
Wind, ice can damage Bradford pear trees
Q. I have a large Bradford pear tree that shows beautifully in the spring and fall, it is about 15 to 20 feet tall. Several branches have broken off in the high winds. I also have some patio and wall damage from the tree roots; they are about 10 feet away from the tree. I suspect my best approach is to replace it. But I do not know the best tree to replace it with. Or maybe it could prune the roots and hope for the best. How about an Oak as a replacement? Any ideas would be very helpful. Leroy G. Alameda, NM A. Bradford pear trees can be beautiful, but as
you are experiencing, they can be damaged by wind and ice when they become large. This is a result of the branching habit of the Bradford pear tree. Are you sure the damage to the patio and wall are due to the pear tree? It is possible that the pear is the culprit, but other nearby trees may be involved in causing the problems. The root damage to patios, walls, and paved areas can be caused by

‘Stop Poaching Day’ observed today SANTA FE — May 1 is “Stop Trophy Poaching Day” in New Mexico, emphasizing the serious threat the illegal activity poses to the state’s long tradition of hunting, and highlighting the contribution of hunting to New Mexico’s heritage and economy. Trophy poaching occurs when illegal hunters kill large wild game and take only the heads, antlers and hor ns, which can fetch large amounts of money on the black market. The meat and hide on the poached animals usually are left to rot. The offense is a misdemeanor in
New Mexico and convictions often result in light penalties. The Department supported bills for stif fer penalties in the last two legislative sessions, but neither passed. The Wild Friends Program at the University of New Mexico School of Law is a network of students, teachers and mentors who support wildlife and seek common-ground solutions to wildlife issues. “The Wild Friends students across New Mexico worked hard to make this day happen, and feel strongly about the need to stop trophy poaching,” said Susan George, director of the Wild Friends Program.
“We want those big beautiful animals to be around forever,” said Matthew Farnsworth, a fifth-grade student from Ladera Elementary in Farmington.
Gov. Susana Martinez has proclaimed May 1 as “Stop T rophy Poaching Day.” To learn more about how you can help stop poaching, visit the Department of Game and Fish website, wildlife.state.nm.us and click on the “enforcement” tab.

‘Who Framed Roger Rabbit’ actor Hoskins dies at 71 LONDON (AP) — Bob Hoskins never lost his Cockney accent, even as he became a global star who charmed and alarmed audiences in a vast range of roles. Short and bald, with a face he once compared to “a squashed cabbage,” Hoskins was a remarkably versatile performer. As a London gangster in “The Long Good Friday,” he moved from bravura bluster to tragic understatement. In “Who Framed Roger Rabbit,” he cavorted with a cast of animated characters, making technological trickery seem seamless and natural. A family statement released Wednesday said Hoskins had died in a hospital the night before after a bout of pneumonia. He was 71 and had been diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease in 2012.

Hoskins’ tremendous range,” said Steven Spielberg, who produced “Roger Rabbit” and later directed Hoskins in his Peter Pan tale “Hook.” “He was an actor who loved to work and the work loved him. And so did every audience,” Spielberg said. Hoskins’ breakout Hollywood role was as a detective investigating cartoon crime in “Who Framed Roger Rabbit,” a tribute to hard-boiled 1940s entertainment that was one of the first major movies to meld animation and live action. The 1988 Robert Zemeckis film was a huge global success that won three Oscars and helped revive animated filmmaking. “For all the special effects and technical wizardry, it was Bob’s honesty and the truth of his per for mance that made the animated characters
believable — and that was a testament to his real talent,” said Zemeckis. Born in 1942 in eastern England, where his mother had moved to escape wartime bombing, Hoskins was raised in a workingclass part of north London. He left school at 15, worked at odd jobs including circus fire-eater and claimed he got his break as an actor by accident — while watching a friend audition, he was handed a script and asked to read. “I got the lead in the play,” Hoskins told the BBC in 1988. “I’ve never been out of work since.” Hoskins initially worked in theater, but began getting television and film roles in the 1970s. He came to attention in Britain as star of “Pennies from Heaven,” Dennis Potter’s 1978 TV miniseries about a Depression-era salesman whose imagination sprouts elaborate

Bryan Cranston thrills student leaders at matinee
NEW YORK (AP) — Bryan Cranston may play a powerful U.S. president on Broadway, but on Wednesday he was outnumbered by about 70 leaders. The freshly Tony Awardnominated star of “All the Way” joined seven other company actors after the matinee to answer questions about acting and politics from a large group of class presidents and student council officials from over 50 New York City public high schools. Cranston plays President L yndon B. Johnson in Robert Schenkkan’s play about L.B.J.’s bumpy first ter m. The play explores Martin Luther King Jr.’s attempts to keep his movement from fragmenting, the growing war in Vietnam and a snooping FBI led by J. Edgar Hoover. One student wanted to know how Cranston went from Walter White, the sinister meth lord in the TV series “Breaking Bad,” to playing Johnson, an irascible, foul-mouthed oldschool politician. “The transition was actually very smooth,” Cranston said, as the students laughed. “There are a lot of similarities there. More than I care to say. They are two dynamic men with tremendous determination and goals who had also had enflamed egos, which ultimately was their downfall.” Cranston was joined in the talkback by actors Betsy Aidem, Michael McKean, Susannah Schulman, Roslyn Ruf f, Peter
Jay Fernandez, Brandon J. Dirden and Christopher Liam Moore. All were in street clothes and sat on the lip of the stage. Victoria Sottile, an English and drama teacher at The Leon M. Goldstein High School for the Sciences, brought three students from Brooklyn and said she loved the experience. “As an educational method, art is wonderful way for people to be taught,” she said. “And that’s the thing about theater — you get everything: You get people working together, you get history, you get art, you get music.” The students, who had been invited to see the play in partnership with the New York City Department of Education, asked about the research the actors did, how they got their starts and how lawmakers have changed since the 1960s. For some of the students, it was the first time in a Broadway theater. “For these kids in New York City — the cultural capital of the world — sometimes we can be really insular,” said Peter Avery, with the education department’s Office of Arts and Special Projects, which helped set up the event. “It’s important for them to see that there is a present, but there’s also a past that got them here, and that they are the future.” Rob McIntosh, a teacher at the Brooklyn High School of the Arts, brought two students but would
love it if the entire humanities department came. “You can’t possibly take it in the same way out of a book or video clips than when you spend two hours living this period of history with people who are bringing them to life,” he said. “There’s no comparison.” That was echoed by one of his students, Victoria Queliz, a student council president and theater major. “It’s a great experience to just sit there and watch people actually live in the moment and live in the world that they’re in instead of our world. A lot is different and you can see how times have changed,” she said. But she tur ned even more serious when it came time to evaluate Cranston’s chances of earning a Tony Award in June. “If he doesn’t win, I’m going to sue,” she said.

California Chrome made 5-2 Derby favorite Days left to register
Thursday, May 1, 2014
Roswell Daily Record
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — The only time Victor Espinoza won the Kentucky Derby was aboard War Emblem in 2002. They broke from the No. 5 post, the same position he’ll start the 140th edition of the race with early 5-2 favorite California Chrome. “Hopefully, that’s my lucky number,” Espinoza said Wednesday. Eight horses have won from there, most recently Funny Cide in 2003. “I think it’s a perfect spot,” trainer Art Sherman said. “I think we break clean, he’ll get out of a lot of trouble. He’s got a little gas leaving there.” At 77, Sherman could become the oldest trainer to win the Derby, surpassing Charlie Whittingham’s record of 76 when Sunday Silence won in 1989. California Chrome comes into the Derby having won his last four starts by a combined 24 1/4 lengths. “Just an amazing horse to ride,” Espinoza said. “I let him do his own thing and I think he likes that.” Hopportunity was made the 6-1 second choice in the full field of 20 horses. Hopportunity, who lost to California Chrome in the Santa Anita Derby, drew the
No. 11 post for the race Saturday at Churchill Downs. He’s trained by Bob Baffert, a three-time Derby winner with two starters. “Other than California Chrome, who’s proven he’s a really good horse, there’s a lot of horses in there that are pretty close,” Baffert said. “There’s a lot of parity in this field.” His other horse, Chitu, is a 20-1 long shot that drew the No. 13 post. Wicked Strong, named for the victims of last year’s Boston Marathon bombings, is the 8-1 third choice and will break from the 20th post on the far outside. He and the No. 10 horse, Wildcat Red, will be last ones loaded into the starting gate, so they won’t be in there very long. Some trainers don’t like the No. 20 post because their horse is on the far outside and has to quickly make its way over toward the rail to save ground. Calvin Borel will break from the No. 19 post aboard Ride On Curlin. The jockey nicknamed “Bo-rail” for his love of riding along the rail has won three Derbies since See DERBY, Page B3

Spurs beats Mavs, take 3-2 series lead NBA PLAYOFFS
Chavez pitches A’s to sweep of Rangers
Oakland Athletics' Jesse Chavez delivers to the Texas Rangers in the first inning, Wednesday, in Arlington, Texas.
ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Jesse Chavez allowed one hit in seven scoreless innings, Eric Sogard matched his season total with three RBIs on Wednesday night and the Oakland Athletics completed a threegame sweep with a 12-1 rout of the sloppy Texas Rangers. Yoenis Cespedes had two doubles, scored twice and drove in two runs for the
A’s, who scored 10 runs combined in the third and fourth innings to answer a three-game sweep by the Rangers in Oakland last week. The Rangers matched a season high with four errors, including one of two by shortstop Elvis Andrus on what could have been an inning-ending double play See A’s, Page B3
SAN ANTONIO (AP) — Tony Parker had 23 points hours after the birth of his first child and the San Antonio Spurs never trailed in a 109-103 victory over the Dallas Mavericks on Wednesday night, taking a 3-2 lead in their firstround series. Manu Ginobili had 19 points and Tiago Splitter added 17 points and 12 rebounds as San Antonio regained home-court advantage in the tense series against their intrastate rival. Tim Duncan added 16 points and 12 rebounds and Kawhi Leonard had 15 points for the Spurs. Vince Carter scored 28 points, making numerous heavily contested shots in going 10 for 16 from the field for Dallas. After averaging 16 points in the series’ first four games, Mavericks forward Dirk Nowitzki found the stroke in scoring 26 points. Nowitzki was 10for -20 shooting, but it wasn’t enough to overcome Parker and the Spurs returning to form. Carter’s 3-pointer with 3
minutes left pulled Dallas within 98-94 but Parker followed a minute later with his only 3-pointer of the game, punctuating the shot with a loud scream. Parker had his finest start since the series opener despite playing on little sleep following the early morning birth of his son, Josh, with fiancee Axelle Francine. The All-Star point guard mixed in three manic driving layups and two mid-range jumpers to start the game shooting 5 for 7. San Antonio took its largest lead of the game at 24-11 6 minutes into the first quarter as Ginobili hit a 3-pointer seconds after entering the game. The Spurs rediscovered the aggressive defense, long-range shooting and fluid ball movement that fueled them to the league’s best record. San Antonio was 8 for 16 from 3-point range and had 24 assists while committing just six turnovers. Ginobili gathered a loose ball in the paint and

Raptors blow lead but beat Nets See SPURS, Page B3
TORONTO (AP) — Kyle Lowry scored a career playoff-high 36 points, including the go-ahead 3-pointer after Toronto had blown a 26-point lead, and the Raptors beat the Brooklyn Nets 115-113 on Wednesday night to take a 3-2 lead in their first-round series. DeMar DeRozan had 23 points, Jonas Valanciunas scored 16 and Greivis Vasquez added 15 for the Raptors, who would advance to face Miami in the second round with a victory in Game 6 on Friday in Brooklyn. Game 7, if necessary, would be Sunday in Toronto. Joe Johnson scored 30 points and Mirza Teletovic had 17 for the Nets, who scored 44 points in the fourth quarter but lost their final chance when Andray Blatche fired a pass well over Deron Williams’ head into the backcourt for a turnover. Toronto led 94-72 on a 3-pointer by

Lowry put Toronto back on top with a pair of free throws, and a 3 by Vasquez gave the Raptors a five-point lead with 2:46 left. Two free throws by Blatche and a 3 by Teletovic tied it at 106 with 1:23 left, but Lowry made a 3, then followed a layup by Blatche with a driving hook shot, putting the Raptors up 111-108 with 27 seconds remaining. Johnson missed a jumper and DeRozan was fouled after grabbing the rebound, making both to put Toronto up by five, but

Baffert friend coins Hoppertunity’s name B2 Thursday, May 1, 2014
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Hoppertunity could knock for Bob Baffert in the Kentucky Derby, giving the Hall of Fame trainer a fourth victory in the Run for the Roses. The colt with the unusual name has also lifted the spirits of a couple trying to conceive their first child. Hoppertunity earned his way into the Derby with a win in the Rebel Stakes at Oaklawn Park and a second-place finish behind California Chrome in the Santa Anita Derby. He started out with another unusual name, Anyway U Way. “I was getting ready to run him and I really didn’t like that name,” Baffert said Wednesday. So he had a horse with no name. Baffert’s wife, Jill, is a friend of Kathleen Hopper, a designer cookie maker in Pasadena, California. At that time, Kathleen and Chad Hopper were trying to have a baby. “We were all excited for them,” Baffert said. “But it didn’t take and they were pretty sad. Kathleen said, ‘Well, we missed anoth-

Trump buys famed Turnberry course in Scotland
NEW YORK (AP) — Donald Trump expanded his golf empire with his biggest acquisition yet — Turnberry. Trump announced Tuesday that he has agreed to buy the picturesque links course and resort on the west coast of Scotland, which has hosted the British Open four times. The most recent was in 2009, when Stewart Cink won a playoff over 59-year-old Tom Watson. The most famous was in 1977, the “Duel in the Sun” that featured Watson defeating Jack Nicklaus. “It is an honor and privilege to own one of golf’s greatest and most exciting properties,” Trump said. Terms of the deal were not disclosed. The Independent in London reported that Trump paid Dubai-based Leisurecorp just over $63 million — 37.5 million pounds. Turnberry is the 17th golf property owned by Trump, including 12 in the United States. That includes Trump National Doral, which was renovated for this year’s World Golf Championship in south Florida. There appears to be no plans to touch Turnberry, used as an airfield during World War II, and now considered among the finest links in Scotland with magnificent views of the Irish Sea, the Isle of Arran and the Ailsa Craig, a rounded rock formation in the Irish Sea from which curling stones are made. “I’m not going to touch a thing unless the Royal & Ancient ask for it or approve it,” Trump told golf.com. “I have the greatest

er Hoppertunity.”’ The Baf ferts seized on the name, and colt was of f to the races. “It was an uplift for them,” Baffert said. “They feel like they’re part of the horse. As soon as I named him, he started to come around.” After running fifth in his debut in January, Hoppertunity won his next race at Santa Anita with Kathleen Hopper there to root him on. Now comes the biggest test, the 1 1/4-mile Derby. Baffert feels Hoppertunity has a chance if he is in contention at the top of the stretch. “He’s a good horse, and he can handle a lot of pressure,” Baffert said. “He’s not going to freak out. It’s not going to bother him, being in with a lot of horses. I feel confident if he’s in the top four turning for home, he’ll be really competitive.” Baffert also sends out Chitu, the Sunland Derby winner, who
respect for the R&A and for (chief executive) Peter Dawson. I won’t do anything to the golf course at all without their full stamp of approval.” Trump said he would invest “many millions of dollars” into the hotel and said it would be the most luxurious in all of Europe when he was finished. He raves about all of his golf courses, believing them to be among the best in the world and worthy of major championships. With Turnberry, he is certain to get one. The R&A has not announced future sites beyond 2016 up the Ayrshire coast at Royal Troon, though Turnberry has become a popular venue. It is the youngest of the British Open sites — 1977 was its first British Open — and the roads were improved for it to end a 15-year hiatus with a return in 2009. All of Trump’s other courses have his name in the title. He told golf.com that Trump Turnberry “has a nice ring to it,” but that would be decided fairly soon. That might not matter to the history of golf’s oldest trophy — the claret jug. “Turnberry has been called other things before with previous owners,” Dawson told The Independent. “But it’s engraved as Turnberry on the jug, and I’d imagine will remain so.”

has been battling a foot fungus that requires special care and shoeing by a blacksmith.
BUSY HORSE: Medal Count faces a very rigorous schedule. The Derby will be his third race in less than a month. Most runners in the field have had at least three weeks rest. Orb had a 34day break before winning last year’s Derby. Medal Count is a throwback to an era when horses made more starts over longer seasons. Cannonade ran twice in one week in winning the 1974 Derby. Medal Count’s last two efforts came on the synthetic track at Keeneland. He captured the Transylvania Stakes on April 4, a race originally scheduled for the turf. He followed that with a fastfinishing second in the Blue Grass Stakes eight days later. Trainer Dale Romans feels the stout son of the late Dynaformer has the pedigree to handle the workload. And he’s sorry to see
the bloodline end. Dynaformer passed away two years ago. He was best known as the sire of 2006 Derby winner Barbaro. “I think he was a very good sire,” Romans said. “If we could get a good Dynaformer colt like this into the breeding shed, I think it would be important for the future of racing. Those are good, rugged, hearty horses.” Barbaro suffered a catastrophic breakdown in the Preakness that led to his demise after a fight for survival. “It’s just a shame what happened with Barbaro, that he couldn’t get to the breeding shed with those bloodlines,” Romans said. With a Derby win, Medal Count might carry on the family tradition. NAPRAVNIK SUSPENDED: Jockey Rosie Napravnik will serve a four-day suspension after she rides in the Kentucky Derby.

Seattle expects Rice to be ready for season
RENTON, Wash. (AP) — Wide receiver Sidney Rice should be fully recovered from a torn knee ligament by the time the Seattle Seahawks start defense of their Super Bowl title, general manager John Schneider said Wednesday. After spending the past three seasons with the Seahawks, Rice was released by Seattle following the Super Bowl in a salary-related move. He was scheduled to make $8.5 million in base salary for 2014 before being released in late February. But Rice and the Seahawks remained in contact and he was brought back on a $1 million, one-year deal earlier this month. He received medical clearance to participate in football-related activities in the middle of April. Rice appeared in eight games for Seattle last season with 15 catches for 231 yards and three touchdowns before being placed on injured reserve after tearing his anterior cruciate ligament in October against St. Louis. If he can return to health and productivity, Rice could quell one of Seattle’s questions about depth at wide receiver heading into next season. “When we released him it was hard but we explained the landscape to Sidney and his representative and we stayed in contact with him all the way through it,” Schneider said. Schneider touched on a number of topics during his pre-draft availability. Schneider said that Terrelle Pryor was acquired from Oakland with the idea that he’d compete as a quarterback. Seattle sent a seventh-round pick to the Raiders in exchange for Pryor. There was a thought he could be a dual-threat player for Seattle, but Schneider said Pryor is learning the quarterback position. Schneider said Seattle knew it wouldn’t be able to get Pryor off waivers, leading to the discussions of the trade. The value of what Pryor could bring was likely higher than what they could get from the seventhround pick. “Right now he’s learning the quarterback position and (another position) isn’t even an option,” Schneider said. Schneider did not know if wide receiver Doug Baldwin would sign his second-round tender as a restricted free agent. Friday is the deadline for restricted free agents to field offers from other teams. He added the team has not made a decision on whether to pick up the fifth-year option on former first-round pick James Carpenter. Schneider also declined to comment on whether strong safety Kam Chancellor or left tackle Russell Okung had surgery in the offseason. Left to be determined is if recently hired consultant Jeff Ireland will have a role with the club following the draft. The former Miami general manager was hired by Seattle earlier this week to be another voice in the draft room. But Schneider said it was too early to know if there would be a spot for Ireland with the team beyond the draft.

Churchill Downs stewards punished Napravnik for her role in the disqualification of Bayern from first to second in last weekend’s Derby Trial. Napravnik and Bayern made contact with Embellishing Bob in the final furlong, and jockey Brian Hernandez Jr. lodged an objection against Napravnik. Stewards agreed and changed the order of finish, elevating Embellishing Bob to first and dropping Bayern to second. Napravnik doesn’t plan to appeal the penalty, which she will serve May 8-11. She would have received a three-day suspension, but an extra day was added because she’s being allowed to ride Vicar’s In Trouble in the Kentucky Derby on Saturday.
GOOD FORECAST: Derby week got off a stormy start on Monday and Tuesday. Things look brighter the rest of the way, especially for race day. Saturday’s forecast calls for mostly sunny skies with temperatures in the upper 60s.

Howard, Lin lead Rockets over Blazers SPORTS
Roswell Daily Record
HOUSTON (AP) — Dwight Howard had 22 points and 14 rebounds, and Jeremy Lin came off the bench to score 21 points and help the Houston Rockets beat the Portland Trail Blazers 108-98 on Wednesday night to avoid elimination. The Trail Blazers lead the firstround series 3-2 entering Game 6 on Friday in Portland. A basket by Damian Lillard got the Trail Blazers within two points before James Harden stepped back and swished a 3-pointer to make it 103-98 with about three minutes left. The shot brought the crowd, which was clad almost completely in red shirts emblazoned with the words “Clutch City” on them, to its feet. That started a 12-0 Houston run to close it out. Harden finished with 17 points and seven assists. Houston finally slowed down
LaMarcus Aldridge, limiting him to eight points, after he averaged 35.3 points in the first four games. Wesley Matthews led the Blazers with 27 points and Lillard added 26. Lin got extended minutes on Wednesday night with Pat Beverley dealing with an illness. Beverley had five points in 21 minutes. The Rockets led by as many as 17 points in the first half. Portland cut it to one point three times in the fourth quarter, but never went back on top. Terrence Jones added a basket for Houston after the big 3 by Harden before Howard got after Aldridge on the other end. He blocked his short jump shot, sending it out of bounds. Portland got the ball back and Aldridge got the ball again, but he badly missed a shot with Howard in his face as the shot clock expired, leaving Aldridge yelling for a foul.
The Rockets were up by nine early in the fourth quarter after four quick points from Lin before Portland used an 8-0 run, with the first four points from Nicolas Batum, to cut the lead to 91-90 with 7:39 remaining. Back-to-back 3-pointers by Matthews cut Houston’s lead to 62-58 early in the third quarter. He added 12 more points in the period to finish with 18 of Portland’s 29 points. Howard and Lin carried the Rockets in the third, combining for 18 points. Howard had 10 and Lin scored the rest, including a long two as the shot clock expired with Lillard right in his face. Matthews, who was 4 for 5 from long range in the third, made two 3-pointers within 20 seconds late in the quarter to cut Houston’s lead to two points. But Lin finished off the quarter with a threepoint play to make it 82-77 enter-

ing the fourth. Robin Lopez received a flagrant1 foul when he fouled Howard in the air while fighting for a rebound and pulled him to the ground by the shoulders on the way down. Howard made one of two free throws to stretch Houston’s lead to 74-68 with three minutes left in the quarter. Houston led by three after one and used an 11-0 run to start the second quarter and go up 41-27. Jones scored the first four points in that span and rookie T roy Daniels capped it with a 3-pointer. The T rail Blazers had six turnovers while the Rockets built the lead and didn’t score until a pair of free throws by Aldridge with about nine minutes left until halftime. Howard picked up his third foul soon after that and went to the bench. Portland scored the next five
points to get within seven but the Rockets used a 10-0 spurt to push the lead to 51-34. Lin had a reverse layup and a 3-pointer during that run. The Trail Blazers ended the first half with a 14-5 run, with eight points from Lillard, to cut the lead to 56-48 at halftime. Aldridge had just six points at halftime after sitting out about half of the first quarter after getting his second foul. NOTES: The Trail Blazers wore patches on their jerseys to honor Hall of Famer Jack Ramsay, who died on Monday at 89. Ramsay coached the team to an NBA title in 1977. The plaid patch has the words “Dr. Jack” and a “77” to honor the championship team. The Blazers will wear the patch for the remainder of the postseason. ... Hall of Famer Hakeem Olajuwon watched from a courtside seat.
MLB: Angels beat Cleveland, give Indians their sixth straight loss ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — C.J. Wilson pitched two-hit ball over eight innings, Hank Conger hit a goahead, two-run homer off Zach McAllister, and the Los Angeles Angels beat Cleveland 7-1 Wednesday to send the Indians to their sixth straight loss. Wilson (4-2) struck out eight, walked one and retired his last 18 batters after a leadoff double in the third by No. 9 hitter Elliot Johnson. McAllister (3-2) threw 101 pitches over 4 1-3 innings and was charged with five runs, four hits and four walks.
Athletics 12, Rangers 1 ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Jesse Chavez allowed one hit in seven scoreless innings, Eric Sogard matched his season total with three RBIs and the Athletics completed a three-game sweep with a rout of the sloppy Rangers. Yoenis Cespedes had two doubles, scored twice and drove in two runs for the A’s, who scored 10 runs combined in the third and fourth innings to answer a three-game sweep by the Rangers in Oakland last week. The Rangers matched a season high with four errors, including one of two by shortstop Elvis Andrus on what could have been an inning-ending double play in Oakland’s seven-run third.

Robbie Ross (1-2) gave up 11 hits and 10 runs in 3 1-3 innings, the shortest outing of the left-hander’s first season as a starter.

Eric Hosmer drove in the other two runs for the Royals, whose bullpen blew a 2-0 lead for young starter Yordano Ventura before holding on to beat Toronto with a late rally for the second straight night. Kelvin Herrera (1-1) stranded runners on second and third in the seventh. Drew Hutchison (1-2) allowed all four runs on five hits in seven innings for Toronto. INTERLEAGUE Dodgers 6, Twins 4 MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Zack Greinke pitched six strong innings, Juan Uribe had two RBIs and the Dodgers earned their 10,000th win in franchise history, beating the Twins. Greinke (5-0) struck out six and didn’t allow an earned run through drizzling rain and temperatures that dipped into the 30s.
With the bases loaded and the Twins trailing 5-1 in the seventh, reliever Chris Withrow got Trevor Plouffe to pop out to shortstop on a 3-0 pitch to end the threat. The Dodgers join the Giants, Cubs and Braves as the only franchises to win 10,000 games. Adrian Gonzalez, Andre Ethier and Yasiel Puig each added two hits and an RBI. Kyle Gibson (3-2) allowed five runs in 6 2-3 innings. Washington 7, Houston 0 HOUSTON (AP) — Anthony Rendon finished a triple shy of the cycle and had four hits, Jordan Zimmermann pitched smoothly into the seventh inning and the Nationals beat the Astros. Rendon connected for a two-run double in a fourrun fourth and added a solo home run in the sixth. The Houston native added a double in the first and a single in the third but flew out to left in the eighth. Zimmermann (2-1) scattered seven hits in 6 1-3 innings. He struck out seven to earn his 45th win with the Nationals, making him club’s ningest pitcher since the Montreal Expos moved to Washington in 2005. Denard Span and Kevin Frandsen each had two hits and Danny Espinosa also had two hits, including a solo home run in the fifth that chased Brett
Pletcher said. “It doesn’t matter where you draw, you’re just looking for a clean trip.” Mike Maker will saddle a trio of horses: General a Rod, 15-1; Harry’s Holiday, 50-1; and Vicar’s In Trouble, a 30-1 shot that drew the dreaded No. 1 post. Rosie Napravnik will be aboard Vicar’s In Trouble trying to become the first female jockey to win the Derby. She was fifth last year with Mylute, the highest finish by a woman in history. Napravnik watched the draw from the jockey’s room at the track. “I was just kind of shocked, being the first one drawn,” she said.
“Vicar’s real sharp out of the gate and I think he’ll be able to get in good position. There’s been plenty of winners out of the onehole, so Vicar’s not in trouble yet.” Eight horses have won from the first spot in the starting gate, but none since Ferdinand in 1986. Most trainers despise the No. 1 hole because their horse starts next to the rail and could get pinched going into the crowded first turn. The starting gate is loaded two horses at a time, and the first ones to go in will be Vicar’s In Trouble and No. 11 Hopportunity, meaning they’ll have the longest wait
ris’ hits were infield singles on choppers to Texas third baseman Adrian Beltre and played big roles in Oakland building a 10-0 lead. The burly catcher hustled to beat Beltre’s throw for the fifth straight Oakland hit in the third. An inning later, Craig Gentry scored as Beltre’s throw skipped past Fielder for an error, and right fielder Alex Rios was charged with an error trying to get Cespedes at home when his throw went to the backstop. Andrus, who went 0 for 2 and has one hit in his past 28 at-bats, had his other error in the first inning when his throw went several feet over Fielder’s head on a routine grounder by Josh Donaldson.
Cespedes had a two-run double for a 3-0 Oakland lead in the third before the first of Norris’ infield hits. Callaspo followed with an easy grounder to Andrus, but the ball went between his legs into center field. Sogard later made it 7-0 with a two-run single and added an RBI single in the fourth. Coco Crisp hit his third homer of the season, a solo shot to right field in the sixth for a 12-0 lead. It was the only homer of the series in a ballpark that’s never had a three-game set without at least one home run. Texas ended the shutout in the eighth when Josh Wilson’s double off reliever Luke Gregerson scored Leonys Martin.
NATIONAL LEAGUE Cardinals 9, Brewers 3 ST. LOUIS (AP) — Allen Craig homered on a fourhit day that included three RBIs, and Matt Adams hit a three-run homer as the St. Louis Cardinals beat the Milwaukee Brewers 9-3 Wednesday. Jon Jay had three hits and a walk his first four trips to the plate. The Cardinals avoided a threegame sweep by the team with the best record in the major leagues. Shelby Miller (3-2) worked around homers to Mark Reynolds and Carlos Gomez, allowing three runs and six hits in sixplus innings. Milwaukee is 20-8, a franchise record for wins through the season’s first full first month. Matt Garza (1-3) joined the lengthy list of injured Brewers when he was removed in the fourth inning because of a bruised right thumb.
Marlins 9, Braves 3 MIAMI (AP) — Nathan Eovaldi pitched seven innings and the Marlins scored nine runs off NL ERA leader Aaron Harang to beat the Braves. Harang (3-2) gave up 10 hits in 4 2-3 innings, and his ERA rose from 0.85 to 2.97. The Marlins tied a season high with 15 hits, including seven for extra bases. while the rest of the field is loaded. “He’s a pretty cool, calm horse so he should be fine in there,” Hall of Fame jockey Mike Smith said about Hopportunity. Hoppertunity didn’t race as a 2-year -old, setting him up for a chance to break one of the Derby’s oldest jinxes: no horse since Apollo in 1882 has won the Derby without racing at 2. The No. 10 post has produced the most Derby winners with nine, most recently in 2005, when Smith won with 50-1 shot Giacomo. Wildcat Red, trained by Jose Garrafalo, landed in that spot this time.

Amir Johnson fouled out on Anderson’s corner 3. Anderson’s free throw made it 113-112 with less than 10 seconds left. DeRozan added two more free throws to give Toronto a 115-112 lead with 6 seconds left. After a timeout, Blatche was fouled and made the first free throw but missed the second. Blatche grabbed the rebound and tried to pass it to Williams but the ball sailed into the backcourt for a turnover, sealing victory for Toronto.
Marcell Ozuna hit a three-run homer, and Christian Yelich added his first home run of the year. Miami’s 9-0 lead after five innings was a rare luxury for Eovaldi (2-1), who has the lowest career run support among active major league starters.
Cubs 9, Reds 4 CINCINNATI (AP) — Nate Schierholtz drove in three runs and Anthony Rizzo hit a two-run homer, rallying the Cubs over the Reds.

Lowry hit another 3 before the quarter ended and Amir Johnson scored nine points in the first as Toronto led 28-25 after one. The Raptors used another huge surge to widen their lead in the second quarter.

The three-time All-Star was one pitch from recording his first shutout in nearly two years before Yasmani Grandal’s two-out home run in the ninth. Brandon Hicks homered and Michael Morse drove in his team-leading 20th RBI for the Giants, who finished 5-1 on their homestand.

Splitter threw a bounce pass into the lane to feed a cutting Parker for a layup with 7 minutes remaining in the game for a 91-81 lead. NOTES: After initially stating that an ouster of Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling was a “slippery slope,” Dallas’ Mark Cuban refused to comment after NBA commissioner Adam Silver did just that Tuesday.

Joe Johnson scored 18 points in the third for Brooklyn, but the Raptors pulled further away thanks to eight points from Valanciunas and seven by Lowry, taking a 91-69 edge into the fourth.
Lakers coach Mike D’Antoni resigns B4 Thursday, May 1, 2014
FINANCIAL / SPORTS
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Los Angeles Lakers coach Mike D’Antoni resigned Wednesday after less than two seasons on the job. Team spokesman John Black confirmed D’Antoni’s resignation, ending the brief tenure of the Lakers’ fourth head coach in less than three years. D’Antoni went 67-87 after taking over the Lakers early in the 2012-13 season. He replaced the fired Mike Brown, who lasted just 71 games after replacing 11-time NBA champion coach Phil Jackson in 2011. The injury-plagued Lakers were 27-55 this season, their worst campaign in more than 50 years and the second-worst winning percentage in franchise history. With Kobe Bryant, Steve Nash and Pau Gasol sitting out large chunks of the season while the Lakers lost an NBA-worst 319 man-games to injuries, the 16time NBA champion franchise missed the playoffs for the first time in nine seasons and only the third time in 38 years. “Given the circumstances, I don’t know that anybody could have done a better job than Mike did the past two seasons,” Lakers general manager Mitch Kupchak said. “On behalf of the Lakers, we thank Mike for the work ethic, professionalism and positive attitude that he brought to the team every day. We wish him the best of luck.” The 62-year-old D’Antoni had one year left on his contract, but wanted the Lakers to pick up his option year for 2015-16 to have any chance of success. The Lakers apparently refused, leading to D’Antoni’s resignation. D’Antoni walked away from a $4 million payday for next season, although he may receive a portion of that money as severance. A phone message left for D’Antoni wasn’t immediately returned. Despite the Lakers’ injuries on a

fact that D’Antoni’s style doesn’t suit my game. Everybody knows this. I don’t know if my decision will be swayed by whether Mike stays or leaves. Obviously, the coach is a very important factor for any team.” After joining the Lakers on short notice last season, D’Antoni was unable to assemble a contending team immediately around Bryant and Dwight Howard, who struggled to embrace the pick-and-roll game so important to D’Antoni’s offense. Los Angeles won 45 games last season despite its awful start under Brown. But the Lakers lost Bryant to a torn Achilles tendon late in the regular season before getting swept out of the first round by San Antonio. Howard left the Lakers as a free agent last summer, fleeing to Houston for less money to escape the Lakers’ drama and high expectations. Bryant played in just six games this season after breaking a bone near his knee in December, and Los Angeles never had a consistently competitive team in his absence. Nash also missed most of the season with various injuries, but the 40-year-old point guard hopes to play again next season. D’Antoni realized he would take the blame for the Lakers’ woes this season, and the veteran coach seemed comfortable with the prospect when the team packed up for the summer. “Every coach should be under scrutiny,” D’Antoni said two weeks ago. “Some coaches get fired even after the best years they’ve ever had. ... There’s always things we could have done better, and it’s easier with hindsight. Things don’t always go smoothly. For the most part, our guys were very competitive. For us, there are some silver linings in there, but in hindsight, it’s disappointing for everybody.”

roster consisting mostly of players on one-year contracts, Los Angeles fans largely directed their anger during a rare down season toward D’Antoni. Lakers great Magic Johnson, who was sharply critical of D’Antoni’s coaching style, hailed the news on his Twitter account. “Happy days are here again!” Johnson tweeted. “Mike D’Antoni resigns as the Lakers coach. I couldn’t be happier!” D’Antoni also has coached the Nuggets, Suns and Knicks. He reached two Western Conference finals with Nash in Phoenix before having much less success in New York. D’Antoni’s signature up-tempo style of play seemed an odd match from the start with the aging, balldominating Bryant and the Lakers, who ran Jackson’s deliberate
triangle offense to perfection. Lakers owners Jerry and Jim Buss curiously chose D’Antoni to replace Brown over Jackson, who strongly contemplated a return for a third stint on the Los Angeles bench. Jackson became the president of the Knicks in March. Kupchak said he will begin the search immediately for the Lakers’ fifth head coach since 2011 — including Jackson, who walked away from the team after falling short of a third consecutive championship. D’Antoni’s departure will allow the Lakers’ franchise overhaul to begin in earnest after their worst season since 1957-58 back in Minneapolis. Los Angeles missed the postseason for just the second time in the 17-season career of Bryant, who occasionally clashed
with D’Antoni. The Lakers have a top-10 pick in a strong draft and just three players under contract for next season, including Nash and Bryant. The fourth-leading scorer in NBA history will make more than $48 million over the next two years. A coaching change also might make the Lakers more attractive to Gasol, an unrestricted free agent who intimated he wouldn’t consider returning if D’Antoni still coached the team. Kupchak has said the Lakers are very interested in re-signing the 7-foot Spaniard, one of the top available free agents. “There would have to be significant changes,” Gasol wrote in Spanish on his personal blog recently. “I’ve never concealed the
NY retains sports attorney in bid to keep Bills
BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) — Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s administration retained a key sports business legal expert to assist in the state’s bid to prevent the Buffalo Bills from relocating. Irwin Raij, who played a key role in negotiating the Bills’ 10-year lease, is staying on to represent the state’s interests in securing the franchise’s long-term future following the death of owner Ralph Wilson. Three weeks after Wilson’s death in March, the Empire State Development board extended a contract with Foley & Lardner, and specifically with Raij, one of

DEAR ABBY UNIVERSAL PRESS SYNDICATE
DEAR ABBY: I’m writing to support “Feeling Coerced in San Diego” (Feb. 14), who is uncomfortable attending church with her husband. I understand her feelings because I, too, am an atheist in a relationship with a religious man. There is another option besides abstaining from church or attending only on major holidays, and that would be for “Coerced” and her husband to try a different church. One religion that embraces atheist church members is Unitarian Universalism. UU congregations are often
made up of people from different backgrounds — Christian, Jewish, atheist and more. The focus of the sermons is on living a good life, treating other people and our planet with respect, and following one’s own path to spiritual enlightenment. It’s likely that “Coerced” and her husband could both feel at home in such a congregation. CHELSEA IN WICHITA
DEAR CHELSEA: Thank you for your suggestion — it’s one that was echoed by many other readers. I have mentioned the Unitarian Universalist denomination and its website (uua.org) before in my column. Readers’ comments were enlightening: DEAR ABBY: I, too, am in a “mixed marriage.” I’m religious and my husband is an atheist. We agree to disagree on the matter. Religion (or lack of it) is a very personal thing, and however we feel, we owe each other respect for our different views.
“Coerced” is great for trying to accommodate her husband, but now that they see it didn’t work, he should stop pressuring her. She can refrain from going to services, but should consider attending the church’s social events. This solution worked well for us. My husband and my church friends get along well. Of course, this depends on the nature of the church. Mine happens to be one of the more progressive. It’s worth a try. KATHRYN IN OTTAWA, CANADA
DEAR ABBY: I knew my husband was atheist when we married. Our spiritual journeys are different, and we’re not going to change each other. We agreed I would raise our kids Catholic. I never expect him to be at church with us on Sundays, but on important sacraments (baptism, first communion, confirmation), he is there with the whole family because he realizes these events are important for his kids and me. He has become friendly with some of my
clergy and fellow congregants, who accept him for the wonderful person he is.
Maybe in the future “Coerced” could attend an event like a church spaghetti dinner, something outside of services, and get to know the people her husband spends time with on Sunday. And he could spend a weekend doing a silent hiking retreat with his wife and her friends.
Respecting each other’s spiritual path is a first step toward appreciating each other’s differences and growing together.
BLESSED IN OREGON
“Coerced” is lucky to have a man who attends church and wants her to go, too. She might consider helping in the nursery. That way, she’s there with him but doesn’t have to listen to the message. Churches are always looking for help so parents can actually attend the service.

Dear Readers: Tracing your GENEALOGY can be fun, and you are collecting some family information. Of course, it’s a source of history and family, but it also can help you learn about many medical conditions that may be passed down to the next generation. Here are some hints for getting started if you are interested in making a family tree: * There are many free family-tree “forms” available online. Print one out, start with what you know and work backward. These simple forms are a good starting point. * Contact as many of your relatives as you can to find out what they know. Grandparents, uncles, aunts, etc., can be a wealth of information. Do keep very good notes, because once they are gone, you will not be able to ask those questions! * Don’t look just for birth and death certificates. Marriage licenses, census reports, cemetery records, etc., all can provide helpful information. * Check the library to see if it has a genealogy section. Heloise P.S.: Even tape or video-record a brief conversation. It will be priceless later on. #####
Dear Heloise: I use those wide rubber bands that are found on broccoli to slip onto the caps of our prescription bottles — one color for mine, and a different for my husband’s. It’s easier to open the caps, and you can see at a glance which meds are for each person. Faye B., Evart, Mich. Dear Heloise: To have a clean garbage disposal, this is what I do: I use a vegetable brush with the longest handle I could find. I put baking soda on the brush and scrub inside the disposal. Then I run lots of water, and it takes all the odor and scum away. Betty K. in Ohio Just a touch of baking soda keeps things fresh and clean (especially in the garbage disposal). When done cleaning, make sure your vegetable brush is labeled “for disposal cleaning only.” Baking soda is one of my favorite cleaning products, and I wrote my Heloise’s Baking Soda Hints and Recipes pamphlet to share just some of its many uses. To order one, send $5 and a long, selfaddressed, stamped (70 cents) envelope to: Heloise/Baking Soda, P.O. Box 795001, San Antonio, TX 78279-5001. Occasional sprinkles of baking soda in the bottom of the dishwasher between uses will keep odors to a minimum. Heloise

Dear Heloise: I am an 84-year-old senior in good health who lives alone. I and several of my contemporaries have started a “Good Morning” email, which is sent first thing each morning by the earliest riser, and the recipients each “reply to all.” Each of us has given an emergency contact to the others. If we fail to receive a response by midmorning, we begin to do a little checking. This assures us that the senior is OK, and that any pets are cared for in an emergency. A Friend in Houston
