BOSTON (AP) — Three college friends of Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev were arrested and accused Wednesday of removing a backpack containing hollowed-out fireworks from Tsarnaev’s dorm room three days after the attack to keep him from getting into trouble. In court papers, the FBI said one of them threw the backpack in the garbage — it was later found in a landfill by law enforcement officers — after the young men concluded from news reports that Tsarnaev was one of the bombers. Azamat Tazhayakov and Dias Kadyrbayev, both 19-year -olds from Kazakhstan, were

RISD Super explains field trip confusion

Ju d ge Eu gen e M . De Los S an t os announced his retirement from the post of District 1 Magistrate Court Judge, Wednesday. He sent his letter of intent to Gov. Susana Martinez, Tuesday, in which he said: “It has been my great honor and pleasure to serve as Magistrate Judge. … I am especially proud of the many New Mexico magistrate judges with whom I have served and their commitment to the fair and impartial administration of justice.” De Los Santos has long served his community and his country. He was in the 3rd Missile Battalion, 7th Artillery, Infantry Regiment of the Marine Corps during the Vietnam War. From 1970 to 1983, De Los Santos worked for the Roswell Police Department. Then he transferred to the Fire Department. In 1993, he retired from the city and ob t ain e d a p r i vat e i nvest igat or ’ s

Last week, teachers of the Roswell Independent School District who planned to take students on an overnight, out-of-town field trip to a state-wide competition received notification that they would not be allowed to do so as a school sponsored activity. Teachers were informed the day before the trip, causing much confusion and stress on parents and students. Due to last-minute planning, some students were able to participate in the event, with the help of outside sponsorship. Yet, many parents still wondered how this could happen, when their students had prepared for months and worked so hard. This week, RISD Superintendent Tom Burris explained the administration couldn’t support the trip due to the lack of proper documentation. In order for a trip to be school sponsored, Burris said teachers or club sponsors must submit to his office a field trip request form, an itinerary that includes locations and times, a list of all individuals going and they must be able to show that permission slips have been distributed and

‘May Day’ immigration events held throughout N.M. vocal after debates over the state law that allows immigrants who are in the country illegally to obtain driver’s licenses, advocates say. “From oil and gas workers in southeastern New Mexico to workers on dairy farms, people are getting excited,” said Marcela Diaz, executive director of Somos Un Pueblo Unido, a Santa Fe-based advocacy group. “State lawmakers also forced us to get organized.” Since New Mexico Gov. Susan Martinez took office in 2011, the nation’s only Latina governor, a Republican, has sought repeatedly to repeal the immigrant driver’s license law over fraud concerns. Those efforts sparked Somos Un Pueblo Unido and the Albuquerque-based group El

ALBUQUERQUE (AP) — Advocates in New Mexico joined national efforts on Wednesday to push for immigration reform with May Day marches, rallies and prayer vigils. This year, May Day events aimed at drawing attention to immigration reform weren’t just taking place in the state’s largest cities. Advocates in New Mexico’s smaller towns organized their own marches and vigils. Using an aggressive push in social media and new text message alert systems, advocates said smaller rural areas such as Lovington and Gallup are seeing more immigrants organizing over hopes that this year they can see an immigration reform measure pass in Congress. They’ve also been pushed to become more

Centro de Igualdad y Derechos to hold town hall meetings and workshops across the state to successfully block all repeal attempts. Rachel LaZar, executive director of El Centro, said concerns of a possible repeal helped get immigrants in smaller towns involved and is now aiding advocates as efforts shift toward pushing for federal reforms. “Immigrants are no longer afraid to take photos in front on a sign that says ‘Keep New Mexico Families Together,’ which are sent to lawmakers,” said LaZar. “People are energized and want to be accepted.” Somos Un Pueblo Unido scheduled a May Day rally in Santa Fe and a prayer vigil in Gallup to call on Congress to pass a “com-

mon sense immigration reform.” In Albuquerque, El Centro organized a march and interfaith prayer service at a park and a march through Old Town Albuquerque. Meanwhile, a coalition of advocates and religious leaders in Las Cruces put together a community prayer meeting aimed at pushing lawmakers to support a federal immigration overhaul. Despite the energy and excitement around the possibility of federal legislation that could give some immigrants a pathway to U.S. citizenship, LaZar said immigrants believe they must keep up the pressure on lawmakers. “We’ve arrived at this historic movement,” she said. “But more work needs to be done.”

Roswell Police Department detectives are seeking assistance from the public in locating Christopher Herrera, 33, who is wanted for beating and shooting at a Roswell resident. The charges stem from an incident that occurred on Tuesday in the 1600 block of South Kentucky Avenue. Detectives learned that a fight occurred between two men. The victim reported being beaten with a metal pipe. The man was able to get to his vehicle, but Herrera followed.

A convicted felon, Herrera now faces charges of aggravated battery, shooting at an occupied building, shooting at or from a vehicle and felony possession of a firearm, with a $75,000 cash-only bond.

license. In 1994, he threw his hat into the political arena, running for magistrate court judge and lost. Undeterred, De Los Santos ran a second time in 1998 after Judge Carpenter retired, and won. Since that time, he has heard many cases. He said the most difficult for him are drunk driving cases where the driver is involved in an accident and domestic violence cases. De Los Santos has felt the mantle of his responsibilities. “You have to look the DA right in the face. You have to look at the defense counsel, the defendant and the victim. You have to put everything together, and you have to make the right decisions.” He and his counterpart, Judge John J. Halvorson, are both awakened to sign warrants for arrest or search two to three times a week. “We might be called as we sit down to eat Sunday dinner or when we are in church,” De Los Santos said. De Los Santos does not claim to be the best Magistrate Court judge in the world, but he has done his best for Roswell and Chaves County. He noted that Magistrate Court hears more than 8,000 cases a year. He praised the court clerks with whom he works, which he described as a family. “We’ve got the best people around. Our clerks are the greatest. They go beyond what is asked of them.” De Los Santos said he was retiring

priorities should be and how to attain them. Focus ar eas of the discussion included high achievement for all students, safe and orderly learning and work environments, efficient and effective district operations and services, and parental and community involvement and satisfaction. The goals the district is trying to develop, Burris said, will be reasonable and attainable, but “there is also an established accountability.” The meeting also involved examining data, redrafting the district’s mission statement and determining best organizational practices. The meeting not only involved representatives from the district, such as school board and faculty members, but a good mix of other community figures as well, such as representatives from local institutions, businesses and law enforcement. “One my initiatives has been to give an opportunity to bring the community together with schools,” Burris said.

querque on Saturday. After taking a written exam in February and scoring as one of the top 10 teams from New Mexico, junior Adrian Zambrano and senior William Hagelstein will compete at the state level for a chance to go to Dearborn, Mich., to compete at the national level. “What I do hope for my students is to have what we call a per fect car,” said ENMU-Roswell automotive technology instructor Eric

returned, with the signature of a parent or guardian.

Burris said his office needs to receive all pertinent information at least two weeks ahead of time to ensure that it can go through the district’s internal mail in a timely manner.

In this case, Burris said those procedures were not followed and the administration made the decision with much

reluctance. Without the proper information, the school system is exposed to liabilities.

Burris has since met with teachers and students to apologize and explain the situation. He said it was just an issue of poor communication on all sides.

The administration plans to review its field trip policies and clarify issues such as overnight trips.

“What we need to do is look at ways to make sure this doesn’t happen again,” Burris said.

However, De Los Santos has not ruled out getting back into politics. He referred to Chaves County as a “bright star in the state of New Mexico,” and he is a ster n d efender of Rosw ell. “Don’t be badmouthing my city that always ruffles my feathers…. Sure, we’ve got crime, but it doesn’t matter where you go, you’ve got crime.” De Los Santos has done his best to be a good ambassador for the city. “We’ve got the alien thing, but I also tell everyone about how beautiful it is. ... We have some of the friendliest people in the world here.” He summed up his experiences on the bench, saying: “I can’t discuss individual cases, but there’s a lot that I’ll always remember. I want to thank the people of Roswell. I will continue to serve them in any way I can.”

Rick Sulewski, senior consultant at Jim Shipley and Associates, facilitated the meeting and said it spoke well of the district’s openness to engage others as it tackled the challenge of coming up with a five-year plan to meet the needs of the school and community. During the discussion, participants used the continuous improvement framework to establish goals. The model is used by Jim Shipley and Associates trainers who work with schools to improve student achievement and parental satisfaction. Mesa Middle School principal Jennifer Cole uses the system at her school and said it is a way of constantly reviewing processes in place and making improvements based on data in areas such as the attendance rate and student academic performance. Burris will share issues discussed during the meeting with others in the district and the community, seeking more input and feedback for another meeting in June. “This is not a plan to be put on a shelf and archived, it’s a living document,” he said. “Everyone knows it will be under review.”

Gomez. “That means they’ve fixed every problem on the vehicle so that they can win first place at state and get the chance to go to Dearborn, Mich., to compete against the rest of the nation.” Zambrano and Hagelstein are receiving dual credit through the Automotive Technology program at ENMU-R, and have had the opportunity to practice their automotive skills on a 2013 Focus donated to the university by Roswell’s Ford dealership. The high school students will be competing against other two-person teams

made up of 11th- and 12th-grade students.

The winning team from each state will receive scholarships, tools, awards and the trip to the National Finals at the Ford Motor Headquarters, all expenses paid.

Gomez said his favorite part for the students is that they get to have real world experience fixing real car problems. Just competing at the state level will open up job opportunities with Ford dealers and other sponsoring organizations in need of automotive technicians.

Roswell Police searching for Sais JESSICA PALMER RECORD STAFF WRITER

The Roswell Police Department is searching for 33-year-old Christopher Sais, who is wanted on charges of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon, aggravated assault and shooting at a motor vehicle. The incident occurred late Saturday night when Sais allegedly ran over another man in the parking lot at Tinney’s Mercantile, 412 W. Second St. Police officers responded to Easter n New Mexico Medical Center where the victim was being treated for injuries sustained during the incident. The victim told authorities that he had been at a party and left with some friends. The group noticed another man following their vehicle in a second vehicle. The driver of the first

Christopher Sais

vehicle pulled over. He got out of the SUV to talk to the driver of the second vehicle to find out why Sais was following them.

As the victim exited the vehicle, he told officers that he heard the engine race. He attempted to jump out of the way, but was struck by Sais’ vehicle and physically run over, sustaining

injuries. A friend pulled him out of the way as Sais attempted to turn his vehicle around for a second pass. Sais fired shots at the other vehicle as he fled the scene. The rear window on the driver’s side of the vehicle was shattered by the gunfire, but no one was wounded as a result of it. According to the criminal complaint, Sais was picked out of a photo array as the driver of the second vehicle. Officials believe Sais may be driving a mid-2000-style black Ford Escape with damage to the front end. People are urged to contact the Police Department if they have any additional information about the incident. The RPD also would like to hear from anyone who knows Sais’ whereabouts. Call the RPD at 575-624-6770, or Crime Stoppers at 1-888-5948477.

New Mexico’s University and its politicians A4 Thursday, May 2, 2013



Former Gov. Garrey Carruthers is one of five finalists in line to become the next president of New Mexico State University in Las Cruces. NMSU’s presidency has been something of a revolving door in recent years with one president after another passing through in remarkably rapid succession, leaving onlookers to wonder what if anything had been accomplished during their brief tenures. Count this reporter among a good many other New Mexicans who has often wondered why the Board of Regents of that university has for so long failed to see the wisdom of putting an end to the turmoil by tapping Carruthers for their institution’s top job. His Ph.D. (in economics) is from Iowa State University, but he earned both his B.A. and his M.A.



at New Mexico State. After his four-year term (198791) as governor was over, Carruthers spent a few years in the private sector with management and development activities in the health-maintenance field. But for more than a decade now, he has been dean of NMSU’s business college, and he is plainly devoted to that institution. Indeed, Carruthers has reportedly told his six grandchildren that he will pay their way through college, “tuition, room, board and books,” with the proviso that they “have to go to New Mexico State.”


Roswell Daily Record

Talk about loyalty to one’s alma mater! Granted, New Mexico has seen some difficult times in recent years when top state political figures have become involved in the internal affairs of the state’s institutions of higher education. Back in the 1980s, another former governor, Jerry Apodaca, became president of the University of New Mexico’s Board of Regents, whereupon the new UNM president, Tom Farer, got crosswise with the former governor, and before anyone could blink Tom Farer was looking for another job and the university was looking for another president. A more recent contretemps involving a top level political figure and the presidency of another state university erupted in 2004, when the regents at New Mexico Highlands University tapped the erstwhile state Senate President, Manny Aragon, to be that institu-

tion’s president. After nearly three decades in the Senate, Aragon was perhaps the most powerful state legislator of his era. Within two years, however, Highlands’ Regents were voting 41 to spend $200,000 to buy out his contract as president, and the institution would soon be censured by the American Association of University Professors following questionable firings of faculty members during Aragon’s tenure. Today Aragon is doing time in federal prison for illegal financial dealings as a state senator, but his failings as a university president derived entirely from his lack of academic credentials and experience. He was out of his league. Carruthers, on the other hand, is eminently qualified to head a major university. His academic credentials are undisputed. He is a tenured professor of economics.

His long service as dean of the university’s Business College has equipped him with experience and skills essential to a successful university administrator. What more could a Board of Regents at any academic institution, New Mexico State University included, hope for? On top of all that, Garrey Carruthers knows where the bodies are—at NMSU and in Santa Fe, from whence comes the wherewithal that fuels New Mexico’s state universities. The political skills that made him a popular and successful governor with admirers on both sides of the aisle would simply be icing on the cake for NMSU. Concerns have been expressed about his age--73 years old. And there are grumblings about a hefty raise the last NMSU president gave him. Still, NMSU regents could do (have done) worse.

Ways to save lives are simple, clear

The studies are clear: Even talking on the phone or otherwise engaging in conversation while driving can lead to deadly consequences. Texting while driving is already illegal in most states, with the obvious thought being that it is wildly dangerous to drive while thinking about, looking at and typing on a small handheld device. Whether there is a law or not, it’s just not a good idea to do anything while driving other than concentrate on driving. We literally make life-and-death decisions all the time while we’re behind the wheel and by the time you realize you have not been concentrating on the central task at hand, it could be too late. While the common-sense arguments are on the side of caution, there are still reasons to buffer existing laws. The law against texting and driving is one that makes sense. We have made great strides in the United States in increasing the legal sanctions against drivers who needlessly risk the lives of themselves and others by drinking and driving. It is time we do the same with other senseless distractions. In the case of an emergency, you can use that handheld device to call the authorities and get help. Otherwise, leave it alone until you get where you’re going. It is easy enough to say it, but many of us are guilty of thinking that we can handle the dual tasks of driving and reading or writing. We cannot. “Sending or receiving a text takes the driver’s eye from the road for an average of 4.6 seconds,” according to Dale Erdey, a Louisiana legislator who has focused on the problem. “That’s equivalent at 55 mph of driving the length of an entire football field basically blind. Social networking is taking more time.” That is a stark but useful way of looking at exactly what is happening when we are worried about other things while we are behind the wheel.Some of these distractions can be addressed with enforceable laws, while others cannot. All can be addressed by drivers, who take precious lives into their hands whenever they get behind a wheel.

DEAR DOCTOR K: I’m scheduled to have a corneal transplant. What can I expect during this procedure? DEAR READER: The cornea is the clear, round “window” that allows light to enter the front of the eye. If the cornea becomes severely diseased or damaged, it can cause a significant loss of vision. A corneal transplant often is the best solution. In this procedure, an eye surgeon replaces part of the cornea with a section of healthy cornea taken from a deceased donor. Donor corneas come from a local eye bank. Before surgery, your doctor may prescribe antibiotic eye drops. You may need to adjust or discontinue certain medica-

Is health care about to become more complex? Most Americans — even those who are legislators — know very little about the details of President Obama’s Affordable Care Act, so-called Obamacare. Next year, when it goes into effect, we will learn the hard way. Many people lazily assume that the law will do roughly what it promises: give insurance to the uninsured and lower the cost of health care by limiting spending on dubious procedures. Don’t count on it. Consider just the complexity: The act itself is more than 906 pages long, and again and again in those 906 pages are



tions that could increase your risk of surgical complications. In the meantime, the eye bank will confirm that the donor cor nea is free of infection, transparent and structurally sound. The eye surgeon will measure your eye to determine the size of the cornea that is needed. Before the surgery is started, the surgeon will cut the

donor cornea to the right size. Cor neal transplants are usually done as an outpatient procedure. You will get a sedative and local anesthesia. You’ll be awake but drowsy; you’ll feel tugging on your eye but will feel no pain. The surgical team will use special techniques to keep your eyes open so you don’t have to worry about blinking. The surgeon will cut out a circular “button” of tissue containing the diseased or damaged part of your cornea. Then the donor cor nea will be stitched into place using fine nylon sutures (surgical threads). (I’ve put an illustration of the procedure on my website, Afterward, your eye will be

Our old health care system was already a bureaucratic and regulatory nightmare. It had 16,000 different codes for different ailments. Under our new, “improved” system, there will be more than a 100,000. Government likes to think regulations can account for every possibility. Injured at a chicken coop? The code for that will be Y9272. Fall at an art gallery? That means you are a Y92250. There are three different codes for walking into a lamppost — depending on how often you’ve walked into lampposts. This is supposed to give government a more precise way to reimburse

Rejection is the most common complication: The body’s immune system identifies the donor cornea as foreign and begins to attack it. In most cases, rejection can be treated successfully with medication. You’ll continue to wear the eye patch for a few days. Sutures are usually left in place for several months, or they may be allowed to remain in the eye permanently. After the transplant, your vision should improve gradually over a period of months.

ket. Patients pay directly, so doctors innovate constantly to please them. Lasik doctors even give patients their cell phone numbers. President Obama didn’t kill American free-market health care. It began dying during World War II, when government imposed wage and price controls. At first, companies said, “Great, stability!” But then they realized that they could not attract better workers without raises. So companies got around the rules, as companies do. They gave “benefits,” like health insurance. Government then distorted the market further by giving employer -based health insurance better tax treatment than coverage you buy yourself. But employer -based insurance is nuts. Many workers feel locked into their jobs. Company insurance largely destroyed the health care free market, since employees rarely shop for the best service at the lowest price. Now Obamacare may kill what’s left of that market. Maybe we will soon be like Canada, where some people wait years for treatment. A producer from my TV show went to a Canadian town where the town clerk pulls names out of a box and then phones people to say: “Congratulations! You get to see a doctor this month!” But there is at least one area where

Canada offers cutting-edge, life-saving technologies. Unfortunately, to get this care, you have to meow or bark. Veterinary care is still handled by the market. Providers innovate or go out of business. Markets find ways to make things better and cheaper. Obamacare often forbids that. For example, it requires that every insurance policy cover preventive care and “breastfeeding support.” It insists that mammograms and colonoscopies be provided without any deductible. It’s tempting to believe that such rules prevent illness and save money, but there is little evidence they will. Some people will undergo invasive procedures that shorten lives instead of extending them. Some of us want those tests; some don’t. Gover nment controlled medicine means we all get them and pay for them, regardless of whether we want them. Government control kills consumer choice. Lucky Lasik and cosmetic surgery patients! Their treatments are better in part because government doesn’t consider them important enough to subsidize and regulate. If only government would neglect the rest of health care! Then we’d have better service and better care at lower cost. And we’d have choices. John Stossel is host of “Stossel” on the Fox Business Network.

cially enjoyed the Christmas season and was known to start decorating in October with Christmas angels and knickknacks. By November, she had the yard decorated and was anxiously awaiting the fresh pine greenery to make a wreath for her door. December arrived and Judy was in the full Christmas spirit. She would stay in the spirit until March of the following year. Family and friends would always tease her about her everlasting Christmas spirit. Judy was a lifelong resident of Roswell and enjoyed spending time at the old Hale home on the Hale Ranch in the Ruidoso area where her father, aunts and uncles were raised. Judy was never married. She is survived by a multitude of aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews and cousins residing in New Mexico, Texas, Colorado and Arizona. Many friends will miss Judy, among those is Michael Koonce, who Judy has remained a friend and neighbor to her through thick, thin and thick again. Her friends at First Baptist Church were instrumental in her getting to know our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Tommie Pauline Bennett

Funeral services for Tommie Pauline Bennett, 91, of Rogers will be held at 10:30 a.m., Saturday, May 4, 2013, in the Wheeler Mortuary Chapel with Rev. John Combs of ficiating. Burial will follow in the Longs Cemetery. Tommie will be escorted to her final resting place by her grandchildren. Honorary pallbearers will be Merced Urias, Buddy Taylor, Dewayne Hardt, Monte Mapp and Bobby Victor. The Baptist Children’s Home in Portales was a special love of Tommie’s and donations to the home in her memory would be appreciated by the family. The family will receive guests at the funeral home on Friday evening from 6 to 8 p.m. The family would like to invite Tommie’s friends to join them at the Causey Community Building for lunch and visitation. Roosevelt County lost a true legacy on April 28, 2013, when Tommie Pauline Bennett, 91, passed away following a short illness. Tommie was born July 5, 1921, on her ranch, the very land which was homesteaded by her father. Tommie lived on the homestead all her life except for four years spent in the neighboring community of Garrison. Tommie was a true Roosevelt County pioneer who loved the farm and home where she was raised, and in tur n where she and her husband Charlie raised their family. The land and her cattle were a vital part of her life and she looked forward to taking care of them daily. A celebration of her life will be held with visitation at Wheeler’s Mortuary on Friday evening, May 3, at 6 p.m. and funeral services at 10:30 a.m. Saturday, with internment following at Long’s cemetery, Tommie attended NMSU until ENMU became a fouryear college. She then transferred and continued her education, lacking only one semester when she fell in love with Charlie Ben-

Roswell Daily Record nett and decided to leave college and marry. She used her education and life experiences raising her five children and encouraging them in every endeavor. Tommie’s generation knew how to succeed. She milked cows daily, sewed endless clothes for her family and later in life, embroidered, created quilt tops and crocheted many hours daily. Tommie is legendary in the community for the countless, beautiful things she made for every member of her family and many friends. Tommie was an avid sports fan and watched hours of basketball, baseball, football and rodeo activities on television. She kept notebooks with information and scores about the teams, their players and rodeo participants. She was always interested in life and was anxious to discuss the latest events she had watched. Tommie never missed an opportunity to attend many of these events that her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren participated in. She was a loving and caring individual, always involved in family activities. Grandchildren receiving academic awards, participating in musicals, 4-H or rodeo activities were never surprised, but always delighted when grandmother showed up to watch. Tommie always made sure that with each visit, grandchildren received a toy, a little money or gas for their vehicles. Tommie was closely associated with planning the Roosevelt County Fair Old Timers Day visitation for many years and was pleased to receive the “Pioneer of the Year” award. Tommie married Charlie Bennett on Sept. 3, 1942. Together they joined the Causey Baptist Church and were baptized in a new stock tank on the Slone farm east of Causey. They were both very active in the church at Causey. Tommie will be buried in the very cemetery that Tommie’s father Tom Haislip, along with Thomas Harvey and Millard Fullerton procured the land for. Her Aunt Mae Haislip was the first person buried in the cemetery and since that date a member of the family has been on the cemetery board. Tommie was very proud of the cemetery and will enjoy her final resting place. Mrs. Bennett is survived by her five children and spouses, Patricia and Duwain Bullock, of

Roswell, Gail and Cotton Patton, of Roswell, Phyllis and Allen Ivey, of Roy, Sue Nash, of Lubbock, Texas and Charles and Beverly Bennett, of Portales; eleven grandchildren, Pat and Duwain’s children, Brack and Brad; Gail and Cotton’s children, Shaya and Chad; Phyllis and Allen’s children, Clay and Chantel; Sue’s children, Lacee and Gavin and Charles and Beverly’s children, Jason, Alicea and Brittany. Tommie also has 17 greatgrandchildren, her sisterin-law, Margaret Brown, and many other close family members and friends also survive. Merced and Irene Urias became a special part of the family during the 20-plus years they worked with Tommie. Tommie was preceded in death by her parents, Tom and Dora Haislip; a grandson Jarrid Ivey; four sisters, Ida Mae Whitworth, Marjorie Seefeld, Wanda Sturman and Nelle Hardt, and by her husband Charlie Bennett who died June 19, 1976. Arrangements are under the direction of Wheeler Mortuary of Portales.

But in a footnote in the court papers outlining the charges, the FBI said that about a month before the bombing, Tsar naev told T azhayakov and Kadyrbayev that he knew how to make a bomb.

The lawyers for the Kazakh students said their clients had nothing to do with the bombing and were just as shocked by the crime as everyone else. Phillipos’ attorney, Derege Demissie, said outside court: “The only allegation is he made a misrepresen-

Orb made 7-2 favorite for Kentucky Derby days

In this photo taken Monday, exercise rider Jenn Patterson rides Kentucky Derby entrant Orb for a workout at Churchill Downs in Louisville, Ky. Orb has been made the early 7-2 favorite for the Kentucky Derby on Wednesday with undefeated Verrazano the second choice in a full field of 20 horses.


Itsmyluckyday cedes spotlight at Kentucky Derby LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — In the Kentucky Derby conversation dominated by Orb, Verrazano and Goldencents, Itsmyluckyday has become a forgotten horse. That could be a mistake on Saturday in the 1 1/4-mile Run for the Roses. Barely a month ago, Itsmyluckyday was the 8-5 favorite for the Florida Derby. He ran a big race there, finishing second to Orb. But the loss dropped Itsmyluckyday’s profile, and that’s just fine with trainer Eddie Plesa Jr. “It’s a good thing,” he said. “I don’t mind at all.” Because the Florida Derby was not the ultimate goal. “As much as we would have liked to have won it, as much as we were disappointed we didn’t win it, the true objective is the race coming up Saturday,” he said Wednesday. Itsmyluckyday has run only twice since the end of January. After winning the Holy Bull Stakes at Gulfstream Park on Jan. 26, Itsmyluckyday didn’t run again until the Florida Derby on March 30. “We did it by design to have a bigger, stronger horse coming into this Saturday,” Plesa said. “It’s worked with him physically. Whether he wins or doesn’t win the

ing’s Hall of Fame, but the 62year -old trainer has yet to win the Derby in six previous tries. “I think where from he is, we’ll be solid,” McGaughey said. “Kind of hold our position, maybe try to creep in a little bit more around the first turn, and he can kind of watch what’s going on down on the inside.” Orb comes into the Derby on a four-race winning streak. He won the Florida Derby in his last start. Pletcher was pleased about where his posse landed in the starting gate. Wood Memorial winner Verrazano drew the No. 14 post and was the 4-1 second choice. “We got everything we wanted,” Pletcher said. “No complaints whatsoever.” There were four spots left in the gate — including the dreaded No. 1 and No. 2 — before Verrazano’s name was called. Being in the No. 14 hole gives the colt the benefit of extra room because of the gap between his spot and No. 15, which is the start of the auxiliary gate. Another Pletcher horse, Revolutionary, was the fourth choice at 10-1 on the morning line set by See ORB, Page B3

White Sox end 3-game skid with 5-2 win at Texas



LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Trainer Doug O’Neill had a pretty darned good day on two courses. First he birdied the eighth hole during a Wednesday afternoon golf outing at Valhalla and then he aced the Kentucky Derby draw when Goldencents landed in the No. 8 post and was made the 5-1 third choice for Saturday’s race. “It should be perfect for him,” said O’Neill, who saddled last year’s winner, I’ll Have Another. “Perfect” was not the way last year’s Triple Crown series ended for O’Neill and his colt. He came under intense scrutiny after another one of his horses failed a drug test and I’ll Have Another was retired with a leg injury the day before the Belmont Stakes. As for the birdie — the highlight of an otherwise forgettable round — he said, “That was like winning the Derby on the golf course. It was a par-3 and I just knocked it right in the middle.” Orb was made the slight 7-2 favorite over undefeated Verrazano, one of a record-tying five horses for trainer Todd Pletcher. Trained by Shug McGaughey, Orb drew the No. 16 post in a full field of 20 horses. Four horses have won from there, most recently Animal Kingdom two years ago. McGaughey is in rac-

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Conor Gillaspie and Alejandro De Aza homered in the seventh inning and the Chicago White Sox ended a three-game losing streak with a 5-2 win over the Texas Rangers on Wednesday night. Chris Sale (3-2) remained undefeated in his career against AL West teams, settling down after a rough second inning to make it through seven. The left-hander struck out seven and walked two. AL West-leading Texas managed only two runs in the second despite a homer, three singles and a walk.

He struck out four and walked two, ending a span of 85 batters faced over 20 1-3 innings since his previous walk. Sale is 8-0 with a 3.12 ERA in 22 career games (nine starts) vs. AL West teams. Addison Reed worked the ninth for his ninth save in as many chances this season, and 15th in a row going back to last season.

Former Warhawks reunite in Saints camp

MONROE, La. (AP) — Two former ULM players who started their careers together as Warhawks will now try to make the next leap in football together. Receiver Brent Leonard decided this week that he will participate in the New Orleans Saints minicamp next weekend, instead of his previous invitation to the Dallas Cowboys. The Saints invited fewer receivers than the Cowboys, prompting Leonard's decision, and there he will meet back up with tight end Keavon Milton, who signed a free agency deal this past Sunday following the NFL draft. "We are both excited about it," Leonard said. "It's nice that I will have someone that I know there with me. He (Milton) has always been a guy I respected. We have a long road ahead of us, though." Both players grew up in Texas and played their prep careers at high schools separated by just about 90 miles. From there, the duo came to ULM in the fall of 2008 - Milton as a scholarship player and Leonard as a walk-on. After redshirting their first season, the two offensive weapons gradually became a bigger part of the game plan, and their respect for each other is evident. Milton said he learned that Leonard was coming to the Saints camp while at dinner earlier this week, and he made quite the scene "The first thing I did was yell with excitement," Milton said. "Everybody was looking at me like I was crazy, but I didn't care because all I'm thinking about is that he will be there with me." Milton said prior to signing a free agent contract, he had heard from the San Francisco 49ers and the Cowboys, as well. "I was just sitting there waiting for my phone to ring, and different teams were calling and saying that they had picks in late rounds and that they were pushing to get me," Milton said. "But I understand why things played out the way they did. I'm happy with the results of things." The Saints drafted five players this past weekend, including one receiver - Kenny Stills from Oklahoma. Milton is one of two

with 10 rebounds and five assists. And for the first time in the series, Atlanta shot under 50 percent from the field. The Hawks were just 25 of 75 for 33.3 percent. N ot s ur p r i sin gl y, th e game looked more like the first two — both Pacers blowouts — than the last two, both Hawks wins. After a back-and-forth start that featured six lead changes and two ties in the first quarter, the Pacers took command midway through the second. West scored the last six points in an 8-0 run that turned a 31-28 deficit into a 3631 Pacers lead. Indiana followed that with a 9-4 spurt to take a 45-37 lead and never trailed again. Indiana then opened the second half on the 12-3 run and extended the lead t o 6 8 - 4 8 wh en George

Notes: Atlanta scored 2 4 p oin t s i n t h e t h ir d quarter despite shooting just 4 of 14. ...

tight ends that signed a free agency contract with the team and will wear No. 83. New Orleans also signed Josh Hill from Idaho State. Milton is still in the Monroe area and working at Hertz as a car detailer. He will leave Thursday for New Orleans. "This whole process is a blessing from the man above, and it looks like he has more in store for us," Milton said. "Coming from the same school and the possibility of playing on the same team would be great."

years, 177 days when he competed in last year’s China Open. He’s the latest young Chinese player making his way to the world stage at Binhai Lake club, 65 miles south east of Beijing. Also in the field is 14-year-old Andy Zhang, the youngest to play in the U.S. Open last year. He’s joined by Bai Zhengkai, 15, last year’s winner of the China Junior Matchplay Championship, Dou Zecheng, 16, and Jim Liu, the youngest winner of the U.S. Junior Amateur in 2010 at 14. Ye qualified for the China Open with his father on the bag, rallying from a late double bogey to secure the last of four qualifying places. “Ye’s ability to listen and respond is way above the norm,” said his coach, Englishman David Watson. “At the moment, I don’t believe that Ye has too many rivals of the same age. He often wins in higher age groups, but at the same time, I know it is dangerous to speculate and we must realize he is just a 12-year-old boy.” Watson was the former amateur coach to Ryder Cup stars Lee Westwood and Justin Rose. He currently works with the Chinese youth golf program. Despite his age, Ye has already enjoyed impressive international victories, including success in the 2010 and 2011 U.S. Kids World Championship. Last year, he was runner-up, and holds the tournament record of 12-under par, lowering the previous record by Tiger Woods. This year, Ye captured the Guangdong Junior Championship by a record 18 strokes. South African Branden Grace returns as defending champion. The 24-year-old Grace is looking forward to watching Ye perform. “It’s just amazing because when I look back, I only started playing golf when I was 11,” Grace said. “I don’t want even know what handicap I had when I was 12. “I spoke to his coach yesterday just to learn a bit of his background, but he tells me he just seems to win all the junior events around at the moment. He’s also apparently a long hitter and looking at him, he’s quite a big kid for 12.”


Singh out of tournament, day after exonerated

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Vijay Singh withdrew from the Wells Fargo Championship because of a sore back Wednesday, one day after the PGA Tour said it would not punish the Fijian for his admission that he used deer antler spray. The tour said Tuesday the World AntiDoping Agency informed it that the spray contains only small amounts of a growth hormone factor that is banned under the anti-doping policy. The tour had been set to sanction Singh until WADA clarified its position on deer antler spray. The 50-year-old Singh, a past champion at Quail Hollow, is among several players who have withdrawn this week. He declined to comment to a PGA Tour media official Tuesday after the tour dropped his case on the anti-doping violation. Singh has not spoken to reporters since he released a statement in late January that said he was shocked to learn the deer antler spray he had been taking might contain IGF-1, which is on the banned list. Singh admitted to taking the spray in a Sports Illustrated story, which also linked Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis to the product. PGA Tour Commissioner Tim Finchem said Tuesday that while admission is tantamount to a failed drug test, WADA informed the tour late last week that it no longer considers the use of deer antler spray to be prohibited except for a positive test result. The tour said it tested the spray that Singh provided, and it showed a presence of IGF-1. WADA subsequently told the tour that IGF-1 is known to contain small amounts of the hormone factor. “I don’t know of a substance or a transfer mechanism out there that can load a person to IGF levels that would get the attention of the WADA science people,” Finchem said Tuesday. “Clearly, this isn’t one. They’ve made that clear to us.” Singh’s case had the attention of PGA Tour players for the last three months, and it ended with a peculiar twist. “Clearly, it was the right decision based on the information we have today,” said Joe Ogilvie, a member of the Player Advisory Council. “Players just have to be very careful whenever they pay more than $3,000 a month for supplements. That’s the lesson to be learned. “I thought what Vijay was doing was on the edge.” Rory McIlroy also agreed with the outcome, saying that WADA’s decision meant there was little the PGA Tour could have done. “Look, my stance on it is Vijay didn’t know he was doing anything wrong,” he said, “and if there’s no intention there, then I don’t see any reason to unfairly punish him.”

12-year-old Ye to become youngest on European Tour

TIANJIN, China (AP) — First the Masters at age 14. Now the European Tour at 12. When Ye Wo-cheng tees off at the China Open today, he’ll be the youngest in a European Tour event at 12 years, 242 days. He’s following in the footsteps of Guan Tianlang, who made history last month when he became the youngest to compete in the Masters at 14. He also made the cut, despite a one-stroke penalty for slow play in the second round of the Masters. The Dongguan schoolboy will be 287 days younger than Guan, who was 13

as it shook off an 11-0 deficit and pulled away in the second half to stop the Knicks again from achieving their first playoff series victory since 2000. “We didn’t panic and that’s something we’ve done, but we didn’t,” coach Doc Rivers said. “I thought once the game got back to that five, six area, our guys were good again.” J.R. Smith, back from his one-game suspension for elbowing Jason Terry with the Knicks way ahead late in Game 3, missed his first 10 shots and finished 3 of 14 for 14 points. Terry also scored 17 off the bench. Jeff Green scored 18 points and Paul Pierce had 16 as he and Garnett, the two franchise stalwarts, extended this season — and perhaps their Celtics careers — at least one more game. Carmelo Anthony scored 22 points but was just 8 of 24 in another dismal shooting night for the Knicks, who blew a big lead in this game and now the series. They face an unwanted trip back to Boston instead of the rest this aging roster could surely use before the second round. If they get there. “I think we’re fine,” Knicks coach Mike

We found four that were the most mobile that were as close as possible.” They will have their picture taken with the horse on Friday. Porter’s interest in the battle increased after attending the 50th anniversary of the invasion. “I was really inspired by everything I saw there,” he said. “It’s amazing. If you’re ever near there, you have to go to Normandy. Put that on your bucket list. We were looking to

Woodson said. “Sure we would’ve loved to close it out and move on, but nobody said it would be easy.” The Celtics were the first of the eight NBA teams that have come from 3-1 down, beating Philadelphia in 1968, and put themselves on the short list of teams that have erased a 2-0 deficit the next year in the NBA Finals. So perhaps it would be fitting if they were the first to overcome 3-0. “I think so. I mean, I think that would be wonderful, and someone’s going to do it and I want it to be us, obviously, since that’s the situation we’re in,” Rivers said before the game. “Someone will do it, and I really want to be a part of that.” He’s still got a chance. The Knicks limited the Celtics to 75 points per game while winning the first three, and nearly came back to win Game 4 on Sunday even without Smith. So they felt good even after missing their first chance to wrap it up. Though few of these players were here for the streak, the Knicks were perhaps a bit overconfident leading into the game for a franchise that before last year had lost an NBA-record eight straight postseason games. Smith said Tuesday he’d have been playing golf instead of practicing had he played in Game 4, and players wore black to the game Wednesday as if they were heading to the Celtics’ “funeral.”

So we checked on Nor mandy Invasion and it was available.” Porter hopes the Derby experience and the presence of the veterans helps build awareness of a key moment in history. “Hopefully, it will mean a lot to people to meet them and hear their stories,” he said. “I just want to shake their hands, give them a Normandy Invasion hat and make them welcome. So many people watch the Derby. A lot of young people don’t know what D-Day was about and the Normandy Invasion.” ——— RIDERS UP: As the line-

The Celtics didn’t like it, with reserve Jordan Crawford exchanging words with Anthony and Raymond Felton after the final buzzer. Forget the funeral. The Celtics are still very much alive. Smith finally made a 3-pointer to end his drought, and then another cut what had been a 15-point Boston lead to 88-83 with 1:05 remaining. But Garnett made a jumper, then knocked down two free throws to clinch it. The Knicks were just 5 of 22 from 3point range, which looked worse until Smith hit three late ones. The Sixth Man of the Year received a loud ovation when he went to check in during the first quarter, but heard a few boos by the third. They will likely be deafening on Friday, the kind usually reserved in Boston for a Lakers player. By the time Anthony drove right into the middle of the lane for a dunk that made it 11-0, the Celtics already had three turnovers. But Bass made a pair of free throws and then a dunk to settle them down. He added five more points in the period as Boston climbed within 2220 even though Pierce missed all six shots in a scoreless 12 minutes. He made a 3-pointer shortly after returning from a break in the second, and another gave the Celtics their first lead at 34-33 with 5:46 remaining in the half. Then Garnett had two baskets in an

Damian Lillard named NBA ROY Goodell, owners

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — It’s unanimous: Damian Lillard is the NBA’s Rookie of the Year. No, it never was in question. Lillard, the sixth overall pick in last June’s draft out of Weber State, led all rookies with a 19-point scoring average. He also averaged 6.1 assists and 3.1 rebounds, playing in all 82 games this season. He broke Stephen Curry’s rookie record for 3-pointers in a season, finishing with 185, and became just the third NBA rookie with at least 1,500 points and 500 assists, following Oscar Robertson and Alan Iverson. And he swept all six of the league’s Rookie of the Month awards this season.

“I can’t stop smiling,” Lillard said when he was awarded the Eddie Gottlieb Trophy on Wednesday. Lillard is the fourth player in league history to win the Rookie of the Year unanimously, joining Blake Griffin in 2011, David Robinson in 1990 and Ralph Sampson in 1984. All season Lillard has been winning accolades from across the league. “He’s fantastic, really fantastic,” Kobe Bryant said after the two squared off in a game earlier this month. “A lot of players get hot, but he’s got the moves, the patience, intelligence, the balance on his jumpers. He’s the real deal.” Utah Jazz forward DeMarre Carroll is also a

fan. “He’s a complete player,” Carroll said. “He’s a young guy but you’ve got to give him credit, he plays hard and the team really relies on him. He’s not afraid to take the big shot. The sky’s the limit.” At the ceremony to announce the award at the Rose Garden Arena, the smartly dressed guard spoke about his upbringing in Oakland and how it shaped him as a hard-working player. He was disappointed when he broke his foot to start his junior season at Weber State, because he had hopes of jumping to the NBA. He redshirted, and came back the next season to earn AllAmerican honors. He was voted the Big Sky’s Most

Valuable Player. When he let Weber State know he was going pro, Lillard announced his first goal was to win Rookie of the Year. “I came out and I proved it up,” said the 6-foot-3 guard, who was proclaimed the team’s franchise point guard from the start by Blazers general manager Neil Olshey. “I know that Damian’s best days are ahead of him,” Olshey said Wednesday. “This is the first step in a bright future.” Lillard is the fourth Blazer to win the Rookie of the Year award, joining Geoff Petrie (1971), Sidney Wicks (1972) and Brandon Roy (2007). “The thing you love about him more than anything else is he plays with a chip on his shoulder,” Toronto Raptors coach Dwane Casey said: “He’s one of those underdogs who went to a small school who is out to prove to everybody he’s an NBA player.” Lillard has made a point of being active in the Portland community with an anti-bullying campaign. More than 6,000 fans have signed a pledge to help end bullying as part of his “Respect” program. “He was never satisfied,” Blazers coach Terry Stotts said of Lillard. “He had welldeserved accolades throughout the season. He had milestones throughout the season. He was never satisfied.” Indeed, Lillard was already thinking about what’s next. “I think the best thing for me is to take it all in,” he said. “Then tomorrow I’ve got to let it go. I’ve got my whole career in front of me.”

to speak at career symposium

The NFL had job vacancies for eight coaches and seven general managers in the offseason and despite its signature program for hiring diversity candidates, not a single one ended up in those positions. The league’s Rooney Rule, designed specifically to enhance employment opportunities for minorities, somehow didn’t make a difference. And so, hoping to avoid similar scenarios, the league will hold a three-day career development symposium next week in Philadelphia at the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School of Business. Attendees include Commissioner Roger Goodell and New York Giants general manager Jerry Reese, who conceded it was “a bit unusual that no monitory candidates were hired this cycle, given the number of openings.” “The Rooney Rule brings great awareness of minority candidates in the hiring process,” said Reese, one of five black GMs in the league, along with Rick Smith of Houston, Ozzie Newsome of Baltimore, Reggie McKenzie of Oakland and Martin Mayhew of Detroit. “But the rule is not meant to make clubs hire anyone. I’m hopeful more minority candidates will be seriously interviewed and considered in the future. It’s about being prepared when the opportunity arises, and this symposium is part of the process of preparation.” Speaking to or networking with current and former coaches, former players and anyone aspiring to a management position in the NFL will be Steelers owner Dan Rooney, who was instrumental in developing the rule named after him; New England’s Robert Kraft; the Giants’ John Mara ; Jacksonville’s Shad Khan; and Arizona’s Michael Bidwill. Goodell, Rooney and Kraft will participate in small networking groups. Keynote speakers will be Bill Cowher and Bill Polian both Super Bowl winners who had lengthy NFL careers. Team executives will take part in panel discussions and offer networking sessions for 63 job aspirants, 21 of them former players. Overseeing the program will be Ray Anderson, the league’s executive vice president of football operations, and Robert Gulliver, the NFL’s chief diversity officer.

out of ignorance. Because this happened at school or another place where there is adult supervision, you and your parents should talk to the principal or person in authority so that person can speak privately with the guilty parties and explain why your hearing aids and the microphone are necessary. Your parents should also have a meeting with the principal of your high school before you go so the problem can be avoided. When I was in grammar school, a classmate of mine had severe hearing loss.

DEAR BROKEN WIFE: From where I sit, you are equally wrong. How long ago did the cheating incidents occur? If they are recent, you two should be in marriage counseling. If they were long ago, then you must decide if you want to live the rest of your life being treated as a child and a prisoner. Your husband doesn’t trust you because you haven’t been trustworthy. But taking away your phone and Internet and keeping you under lock and key will not help you to rebuild it. You two need more help than anyone can give you in a letter, and I hope you will seek it.

Dear Readers: What is the difference between a DISINFECTANT AND A SANITIZER? There are a lot of products out today that advertise these properties. Here’s the germy difference: A disinfectant DESTROYS OR KILLS germs on surfaces or objects. A sanitizer REDUCES the number of germs on a surface or object to a safe level (according to public health standards), but does not necessarily eliminate germs completely. Looking for a simple, safe, cheap sanitizing spray that you can make at home? Mix 1 tablespoon of regular household bleach with 1 quart of water. This mixture loses effectiveness rather quickly when exposed to light or heat, so make only enough to use in a day or two. Want more money-saving cleaning solutions?

For Better or For Worse



Dear Heloise: Here is a handy (and frugal) hint for your readers who hate throwing away used sandwich bags. After lunch, I bring the bag home. Then, if it is still in good repair, I wash with a little warm water and dish soap and put it in the drying rack. The next day, I use the bag again.

Dear Heloise: I purchase extra-large containers of shampoo and conditioner from the hair salon. They are quality products and too good a bargain to pass up. But I couldn’t lift them in the shower, much less pour out the amount needed, especially when my hands are wet and soapy. I found a packet of two containers that were just the right size. One was red and one yellow. They are standard-size mustard and ketchup containers! I just snipped the tops a little so the liquid would pour easily. Also, I used a permanent marker to mark them. Carol M. in Pennsylvania Dear Heloise: When removing nail polish, I use a cotton swab to remove the polish from around my cuticles. To prevent losing the cotton swab in the bottle, I pour a little remover in the cap and then dip the cotton swab in it. K.W. in Oregon

Dear Heloise: After finishing a large jigsaw puzzle, before breaking it up to put in the box, I take off the straightedge pieces and put them in a plastic bag. It is so nice, when deciding to put the puzzle together again, not to have to wade through 1,000 or 500 pieces to find the straight edges and get started on the picture! Marion W. in Florida

Stocks sink on economic worries; Dow off 138 NEW YORK (AP) — Signs of a slowing economy dragged down the stock market Wednesday. Even the prospect of continued stimulus from the Federal Reserve didn’t help. Major market indexes fell by 0.9 percent, their worst decline in two weeks. Small-company stocks fell even more, 2.5 percent, as investors shunned risk. The yield on the benchmark U.S. government bond fell to its lowest of the year as investors sought safety. Stocks opened lower and kept sagging throughout the day, hurt by reports of a slowdown in hiring and manufacturing last month. Discouraging earnings news from major U.S. companies also dragged the market lower. “Investors are going to be rattled by these numbers,” said Colleen Supran, a principal at San Francisco

based-Bingham, Osborn & Scarborough. She expects stock market swings to increase after the early gains of the year. The Dow Jones industrial average closed down 138.85 points to 14,700 points. Merck, the giant drug company, had one of the biggest falls in the Dow after reporting earnings that disappointed investors. The Dow had risen for four days straight. The Standard & Poor’s 500 index, a broader market measure, dropped 14.87 to 1,582.70. The stock market was down even after the Federal Reserve stood by its easymoney policies after a twoday policy meeting. The Fed is maintaining its $85-billion-a-month bond-buying program, begun in 2008, which aims to keep interest rates low to encourage borrowing,

spending and investing. The Fed also raised concerns about the economy, noting that tax increases and spending cuts that kicked in this year are slowing growth. The central bank made clear that it could increase or decrease its bond purchases depending on the performance of the job market and inflation. John L ynch, chief regional investment officer at Wells Fargo said: “If you get a market that is purely built on free money, as opposed to solid fundamentals, investors should take pause.” The Fed’s program has been one of the supporting factors behind the stock market’s rally this year. The S&P 500 reached record highs in April and has risen every month in 2013, gaining 11 percent so far this year.

The market has stumbled in recent weeks after several reports suggesting the economy might be weakening. Employers added only 88,000 jobs in March, far fewer than the 220,000 averaged in the previous four months, and the economy grew at an annual rate of 2.5 percent in the January-March quarter — a decent rate but one that’s expected to weaken in coming months because of higher Social Security taxes and the federal spending cuts. On Wednesday, a report showed that U.S. factory activity in April dropped to its slowest pace this year as manufacturers pulled back on hiring and cut stockpiles. Companies added just 119,000 jobs in April, the fewest in seven months, said payroll processor

DETROIT (AP) — Detroit was king in April, with demand for its big pickups helping to boost U.S. auto sales and of fset a soft month for Toyota. Ford, GM and Chrysler sold a total of 144,042 fullsize pickups, up 29 percent from last April, driven by strength in the U.S. housing industry. Overall sales grew 8.5 percent to nearly 1.3 million. While that’s the industry’s best April total since 2007, the pace slowed from the first three months of this year. On an annualized basis, April sales were 14.9 million, the first month below 15 million since October. One reason for the slowdown: Toyota. The Japanese automaker’s U.S. sales dropped by 1 percent, or around 2,000 vehicles, from last April. Alec Gutierrez, a senior market analyst with Kelley Blue Book, said he and other analysts underestimated the impact that increasing competition is having on Toyota. Popular Toyota vehicles

like the Corolla and Camry sedans lost sales to fresher models like the Hyundai Elantra and the Ford Fusion. Gas prices — which are 30 cents cheaper than at this time last year — hurt sales of the Prius hybrid, down 21 percent. Toyota’s share of the market fell to 13.7 percent from 15 percent a year earlier, putting it behind GM and Ford. Analysts still expect the industry to sell more than 15 million cars and trucks this year. Gutierrez is keeping his forecast at 15.3 million. That’s up from sales of 14.5 million last year. The most recent high was 17 million in 2005, while the trough was 10.4 million during the recession in 2009. “We’re not reading too much” into the April number, Gutierrez said. Ford, General Motors and Chrysler reported double-digit sales increases last month. Nissan led Japanese automakers with a gain of 23 percent, while Honda’s sales rose 7 per-

ADP. Company earnings also drew investors’ attention. Drugmaker Merck & Co. fell $1.31, or 2.8 percent, to $45.69 after cutting its

2013 profit forecast. The company said competition from generic versions of its drugs and unfavorable exchange rates hurt its profit.

Price of oil drops Pickups spur increase in April auto sales NEW YORK (AP) — The price of oil dropped more than 2 percent Wednesday, following disappointing economic news from the world’s two biggest oil-consuming nations and a large increase in U.S. crude supplies. Benchmark oil for June delivery fell $2.43, or 2.6 percent, to finish at $91.03 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange. Data from China and the U.S. pointed to weaker demand for oil. The manufacturing sector in both countries grew at a slower pace in April, according to data from industry groups. Construction spending in the U.S. also fell. And payroll processor ADP said that private employers in the U.S. added just 119,000 jobs last month, below analyst estimates. While the market was digesting the economic news, the Energy Department said U.S. crude inventories expanded by 6.7 million barrels last week, nearly five times the increase analysts expected. At 395.3 million barrels, supplies are the highest since 1982, when the government began tracking inventories. The nation’s oil production, at 7.3 million barrels per day, is the highest it’s been in 20 years. Imports of foreign crude increased last week, adding to bulging supplies. Oil has dropped $3.47 a barrel, or 3.7 percent in two days, after gaining $5 last week. Analysts doubted whether economic conditions supported higher priced and “broad-based macro concerns were reinforced by disappointing manufacturing data out of both the U.S. and China” on Wednesday, said Jim Ritterbusch, president of energy consultancy Ritterbusch and Associates. Late in the trading session, the Federal Reserve said it will maintain its plan to keep short-term interest rates at record lows at least until unemployment falls to 6.5 percent. Oil inched back above $91 after the Fed issued its latest policy update.

Sales of Ford’s F-Series, the bestselling vehicle in the U.S., rose 24 percent, while Chevrolet Silverado sales rose 28 percent. Chrysler’s recently redesigned Ram pickup saw a 49-percent increase. The gains bode well for second-quarter earnings, since pickups are among automakers’ most profitable vehicles. T ruck sales have been strong all year because of customers like Adrien McFrederick, who recently put down a deposit on a 2013 Ram 3500. McFrederick, 35, owns a marble and tile business, and needed to replace the 2007 Silverado he kept while work was slow. He started looking at Rams late last year after he and



his wife bought a Chrysler Town and Country minivan.

Businesses like McFrederick’s are getting a boost from a rise in home building, which increased 7 percent from February to March. A revived housing sector means higher sales of big pickups as companies and laborers return to the market. GM said its sales to small businesses rose 32 percent to 57,000 in April.

A different kind of business — natural gas drilling — is propelling sales at Chuck Eddy Jr.’s ChryslerDodge-Jeep-Ram dealership near Youngstown, Ohio. Eddy said energy industry workers from all over the country were coming in to buy trucks last month, keeping him in tight competition with a nearby Ford store.

“I’m selling heavy-duty trucks. We had people coming in from all over the country buying. We had a guy come in from Montana,” Eddy said.

Cubs chairman threatens to move team from Wrigley

CHICAGO (AP) — The owner of the Chicago Cubs threatened to move the team out of Wrigley Field for the first time publicly if his plans for a big, new video screen are blocked, saying Wednesday he needs new advertising revenue to help bankroll a $500 million renovation of the storied ballpark. Cubs Chairman Tom Ricketts until now had said nothing as dire, despite months of contentious negotiations over how to keep everyone happy in sprucing up the 99-yearold stadium in the heart of Wrigleyville on Chicago’s North Side. “The fact is that if we don’t have the ability to generate revenue in our own outfield, we’ll have to take a look at moving — no question,” Ricketts told reporters after outlining renovation plans to Chicago business leaders. He added that he remains committed to working out a deal and it is difficult to imagine the Cubs playing anywhere else. But the fight over the Friendly Confines boils down to money and, of course, something unusual — it’s the Cubs, after all. By far the thorniest issue is the plan for a 6,000-square-foot video screen over left field, a common feature in many major league ballparks. The difference is that Wrigley Field — the second oldest ballpark in Major

League Baseball behind Fenway Park in Boston — is surrounded by privately owned clubs with rooftop bleachers whose owners object to any changes that could block their bird’s-eye views into the stadium. The rooftop businesses have been left out of discussions on the proposed upgrade, but they feel they should have a seat at the bargaining table because they have a contract in which they share 17 percent of their revenue with the Cubs. Legal action is a possibility. Ricketts presented an architectural rendering of the video screen during his speech to the City Club of Chicago and insisted that the team’s own studies have shown it would have minimal, if any, impact on the views. He described the sign as “midsize” compared with those at other stadiums, though it is nearly three times as large as the scoreboard currently atop the centerfield bleachers. Another smaller sign with the name of a sponsor is planned for right field. He said without such signage, the team was losing out on $20 million a year in ad revenue — essential for helping fund the extensive renovations without dipping into taxpayer funds. “All we really need is to be able to run our business like a business and not a museum,” Ricketts told the audience.

Ricketts said the team formally filed its full renovation proposal with the city of Chicago on Wednesday. The plan must get approval from city planners and the City Council. There will also be public hearings. The overall plan calls for more night games, a 175-room boutique hotel across the street, a new clubhouse and upgrades for fans. The proposal also calls for an open-air plaza and an office building with retail space. Mayor Rahm Emanuel and the alderman whose ward includes Wrigley Field, Tom Tunney, support the overall plan. The mayor’s office has already agreed that the outfield signs can be installed, but there has been no agreement on size or design. If the deal wins approval, Ricketts said work could begin after this season ends and be completed over the next five years. Theo Epstein, Cubs president of baseball operations, said Wednesday that he hopes the public approval process moves quickly so renovation work, especially upgrades to the clubhouse, starts soon. “If it drags on too long, it’s going to be unrealistic to get it done this winter,” Epstein said before the team’s game against the San Diego Padres. “Then we’re probably looking at opening day 2015 for the renovated clubhouse.”

One of the rooftop owners, Beth Murphy, told reporters after listening to Ricketts’ speech that it was the first time she’d seen any drawings of the screen and that she and other owners would have a lot of vetting to do before determining if the proposal works. “It looked big to me and it looked like it blocked out the neighborhood,” Murphy said. The rooftop owners have previously threatened legal action, and Murphy said she was confident their contract would hold up and protect their businesses. Commenting on the possibility that Ricketts might really take the team elsewhere, Murphy said doing so would not be “a wise business decision.” “The reason the Cubs are such a tourist destination ... is because it’s a ballpark in a neighborhood,” Murphy said. “I don’t think a new ballpark in a parking lot is interesting and that’s why other ballparks don’t have the tourism that Wrigley Field does.” If Ricketts is serious about leaving, he already has a suitor. Several weeks ago, the mayor of nearby Rosemont said that the village near O’Hare International Airport has a 25-acre chunk of land that the Cubs could have for free if they wanted to build a replica of Wrigley Field there.
