NRA SAYS FIGHT IS FAR FROM OVER

THE VOICE OF THE PECOS VALLEY

After a crisp mor ning, the day has warmed to a balmy 75 degrees, and people crowd the lawn at Cielo Grande Recreation Center, riding ponies, eating pizza and enjoying the live country music played by The Mixx in celebration of the annual Party on the River. The day is filled with events, from skateboard competitions to volleyball games. Friends and family sit in bleachers to watch and cheer on a game of flag football. Kids scream and laugh as they go down a blowup water slide. And some, like mother Ansie Jacobson, take a moment to sit and relax in the sun. While her 6-year -old son and husband play on the rides, she takes some time for herself. “It’s a day out with the family to listen to the music, and it’s a perfect day: not too hot, not too cold, not too windy,” Jacob-

son said. She adds that Roswell’s weather is much better than the freezing weather and snow she left in South Dakota. Also enjoying the weather and festivities, 18-monthold Emma Lee Stuart bounces around, dancing and clapping to the music as her mom, Jamie Stuart, and 6-year -old brother, Ashton Marquez, cheer her on. “(Best part about Party on the River is) probably the atmosphere and the people,” Jamie says. “You see everyone you haven’t seen in a long time and enjoy the band. I think it’s about family and just relaxation. And the weather is perfect!” There is a lot of space for children to run around, and more games and activities for the kids than there have been in past years, according to Jerry and Lenore Metcalf who perform in the afternoon with their band, The Tom Blake Trio.

Hot air balloons begin to take flight from Cielo Grande during the Old Timers Balloon Rally, Saturday morning.

AMY VOGELSANG RECORD STAFF WRITER Bright colors, little kids bundled under layers of coats running around and sounds of excitement paint the open field at Cielo Grande Recreation Area. Cold ears and

numb fingers haven’t stopped people from waking up before the sun on Saturday to make it to the 26th annual Old Timers Balloon Rally to see nearly 60 balloons inflate and launch into a pure blue sky. Locals and out-of-town visitors

Operation WASP rounds up those with outstanding warrants The Chaves County Magistrate Court in Roswell, in cooperation with local law enforcement agencies successfully completed Operation WASP (Warrant Arrest Service Project). It is part of an ongoing process to find and arrest defendants with outstanding warrants. The warrants ranged from felonies such as dis-

tribution of methamphetamines, battery on a household member, to traffic misdemeanors. The warrant service covered all of Chaves County. A total of 250 warrants were checked, of those, 50 had out-of-state addresses. “We knocked on a total of 200 doors. ... We cleared some 30 warrants, many had multiple warrants. We went as far as Lake Arthur to pick up prisoners,” said Chaves County Sheriff Lt.

KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) — Seven U.S. soldiers and a member of the NATO-led coalition were killed on Saturday in one of the deadliest days for Americans and other foreign troops in Afghanistan in recent months, as the Taliban continued attacks as part of their spring offensive. The renewed violence came as Afghan President Hamid Karzai acknowledged at a news conference that regular payments his government has received from the CIA for more than a decade would continue. Karzai also said that talks on a U.S.-Afghan

bilateral security agreement to govern future American military presence in the country had been delayed because of conditions the Afghans were placing . The U.S.-led coalition reported that five troops were killed by a roadside bomb in southern Afghanistan, and coalition spokesman Capt. Luca Carniel confirmed that all were American. The coalition did not disclose the location of the roadside bombing. However, Javeed Faisal, a spokesman for the governor of Kandahar province, said the coalition

Fifth-grader Jesus Luna wins statewide award JILL MCLAUGHLIN RECORD STAFF WRITER

A special Nancy Lopez Elementary School fifth-grader received a statewide recognition Friday by the New Mexico State Police for his drawing depicting “Stranger Danger.” Jesus Luna, of Connie Marquez’s class, was surprised with a pizza party, special badges, goodies and a backpack full of school supplies delivered by Santa Febased Sgt. Emmanuel Gutierrez. “I’m so proud of him,” his father Efren Luna said as he watched. Luna’s crayon-drawn poster depicts a rather sad-looking man in the back seat of a police car with a “mom” and “daughter” watching from the background. His poster was selected to be firstplace among all fifth-graders in the state.

Roswell Daily Record

The poster will be sent to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and Department of Justice to be judged in the national “Bring Our Children Home” contest. “These children have bright ideas and they’re very creative,” Gutierrez said. “As you can see, he drew a picture here with a mom and daughter, and where’s the bad guy? He’s in the police car. It’s creative, and that’s what we’re here for. Based on his effort and his ideas.” Luna said he was inspired recently when he witnessed a scene when a man attempted to abduct a young girl. “When I was with my cousins, the police took them and they were all sad, and I saw them through the window,” Luna said. “That’s how I came up with that guy also. I just put myself in the place of that girl when she was

seeing her mom. I would be all excited about seeing my mom again.” Ginene Trajillo of the New Mexico State Police Missing Persons program also helped Luna celebrate the award. “I think it’s neat they get involved,” Trajillo said. “It kind of gives them an idea when someone’s missing. It’s a good program all the way around. It brings it closer to home and helps them stay grounded. It helps (children) be aware of different people out there because they’re kids and they’re innocent.” Gutierrez spent time during the pizza party talking to the class about the dangers of talking to strangers. The children had plenty of opportunities to ask him questions. “We came from Santa Fe for this,” he said. “That’s how much it meant for us.”

Mora County residents are at a sincere disadvantage compared to other areas of the state.” Tens of millions of barrels of oil and gas are produced in New Mexico each year. The hotbeds for development are in the southeastern and northwestern corners of the state, but some Mora County residents are concerned that companies might start to look elsewhere as technology improves. Right now, there are no leases on federal land within the county’s boundaries. There are more than 120 leases on state land, but no active wells. The State Land Office said the leases that do exist in the sparsely

populated county date back to the previous administration and will all be expired in less than 2 years, unless drilling occurs and the resulting wells become commercially productive. Following through on a campaign promise, Commission Chairman John Olivas said he wanted to take action before drilling came to the county. He said the ordinance is about protecting groundwater and establishing the county’s right to make its own decisions about development. The ordinance states that any permits or licenses issued by the federal or state government that

GOP leader criticizes Mora County drilling ban ALBUQUERQUE (AP) — A decision made this week by the Mora County Commission to adopt an ordinance that prohibits oil and natural gas development is drawing criticism. Mora County Republican Party Chairman Frank Trambley sees the ordinance as an attack on jobs and the oil and gas industry, which provides the state hundreds of millions of dollars in revenue each year through taxes and royalties. “It is a dire shame to see such a progressive movement here in our state,” Trambley said in a statement. “Without the ability to explore extraction possibilities,

would allow activities that would compromise the county’s rights would be considered invalid. It also puts the county’s rights ahead of any corporate rights. Olivas said he’s ready for legal challenges that might result. Olivas and Vice-Chairman Alfonso Griego voted in favor of the ordinance during last Monday’s meeting. Commissioner Paula Garcia voted against it, saying the county was being put at risk because the measure violated existing laws. In New Mexico, officials at the federal Bureau of Land Management said the agency is not bound by local ordinances. In general,

the agency would consider leasing federal land for development if there was an interest. Environmental assessments would be done, and the public — including county officials — would have a chance to comment and protest if a lease were awarded. Trambley, the Mora County GOP chairman, is urging people to speak out against the ordinance. “In our economic climate, we simply cannot afford to needlessly throw the possibility for jobs down the drain,” he said. Olivas argued that Mora County’s water supplies need to be protected, especially during a drought.

And another local favorite, To Be II, was sponsored by McDonald’s and was identifiable by an alien, for whom the balloon is named, hanging from the basket. As balloons begin to inflate, the field becomes an obstacle course of balloon material, ropes and trucks with trailers trying to move in and out either to unload their gear or run off to chase down the balloons already in flight. Families pick at food or cover their ears to stay warm, and those on various crews walk with a sense of purpose and work faces. Karen Brown has been involved with ballooning for 26 years and comes to Roswell every year for the Rally. She knows enough of the pilots from her years of involvement to be able to volunteer as a crewmember, and everyone knows she is capable of all the tasks at hand. “I just love the colors and the noise and the people,” Brown says. “The people in Roswell are so nice, and we always have such a good time.” It’s a gorgeous day, and she says the high northerly wind current will lead the balloons to a variety of safe landing locations. But not every helper is a seasoned vet. At 9, Preston McCreary is already learning the ropes. His job is to pull on the rope at the top of the balloon. “I’m pretty nervous about this,” McCreary admits. “(It’s my job) not to let the balloon fly away.”

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama is defending the FBI’s handling of the Boston Marathon bombing investigation as Republicans ready for oversight hearings on the attack. Obama tells the Spanishlanguage television network Univision he doesn’t think it’s fair to say law enforcement “dropped the ball” The president says “there are going to be times where individuals decide they want to cause harm to people for crazy reasons, for no good reason, for ideological reasons.” He says it’s a challenge when would-be attackers are “self-radicalizing” and not part of a broad conspiracy. Obama says the FBI “can’t arrest somebody just based on a rumor.” The first of a series of House hearings is set for Thursday before the GOP-led House Homeland Security Committee.

Adam Silas, who made his way from California to visit a friend, also found himself helping with balloon inflations. “(My favorite part was) actually getting to work with the balloons and watching (them) go up,” says Silas, who held the ropes of the balloon while it inflated. And without hesitation he says his favorite balloon of the day was Spider Man. “I saw that balloon and was like, alright, I like that one,” he laughs. The Spider Man balloon was a big hit and also a favorite of 9-year-old Brooke Flowers, but so was the Pepsi balloon, favorite of Flowers’ 7-year-old brother A.B. Their sisters, Alika and Peyton, however, preferred a rainbow balloon and a grey balloon with red and yellow squares. Although most of the on-lookers seemed content to stare up at the balloons from the familiarity of the ground, Levi Jackson would rather be up in the air. “It’s a way of feeling,” Jackson explains. “It’s a weird sense of buoyancy. It’s hard to explain unless you’ve experienced it.” And experience it he has after his family bought their balloon in November 2011. Now he helps with inflation for the Rally and waits for his next chance to fly. As the dawn turns into morning just after 8a.m., the air begins to warm up, but it’s still only 41 degrees. And with the increasing wind, not only does it still feel nippy, but the half dozen or so balloons still on the ground probably won’t launch. Still, the turnout of people and balloonists was a success, many people agreeing that this year was better than last. “I would definitely come back,” Silas says enthusiastically. “I enjoyed it a lot.” that the agency’s payments to the Afghan government would continue. The New York Times had reported that for more than a decade, the CIA had given the Afghan National Security Council tens of millions of dollars in monthly payments delivered in suitcases, backpacks and plastic shopping bags. Karzai described the payments as a form of “government-to-government” assistance, and while he wouldn’t say how much the CIA gave to the National Directorate of Security, which is the Afghan intelligence service, he said the financial help was very useful. He claimed much of the money was used to care for wounded employees of the NDS, Afghanistan’s intelligence service, and operational expenses.

The Roswell Police Department contributed 15 officers, with five from New Mexico State Police and one from the U.S. Marshal’s Service. The Chaves County Detention Center and the Chaves County Misdemeanor Compliance Office also participated in the project that started on Wednesday and ran throughout the week. “We’ve been planning this for two months. Magistrate Court put all the paperwork and the packages together. We want to compliment them for all their hard work. That’s the difficult part,” said Snyder. Chaves County Detention Center acted as headquarters for Operation WASP and brought in special staff from their Special Operations Response Team to do a lot of the logistical work. RPD Commander Eric Brackeen headed the police operations. “We made the SWAT team available in case we had any siege situations,” said Solis. The program also targeted those people who have outstanding bench warrants for failure to appear in court, failure to pay fines and failure to comply with the conditions of their release. District Attorney Janetta Hicks said

June 30. However, the extension allows the organization to carry on with its services in Chaves County for another year. “We are just thrilled with the decision to reverse that call,” he said. “This kind of action is not an easy task; in our case, the community got behind us.” In addition to the organization’s own efforts to petition the decision, Madrid said parents and area legislators were actively involved. “All in all, it was community effort and we are deeply thankful for the community’s support of our services,” he said. The program provides services such as speech, physical and occupational therapies and developmental instruction to children from birth to age 3 with developmental delays. On average, more than 450 families a year utilize the program. Kenneth and Melissa Vaughn’s daughter Lillian works with one of the organization’s therapists once a week for 45 minutes. Lillian, 2, was born premature and as a result, endured health complications that added to developmental delays, her father said. With the help of the program, his daughter, who doctors said wouldn’t be able to walk or stand without leg braces or talk at all, began to do so, Kenneth said, seemingly out of the blue. “She’s come a long way and it’s because of them,” he said. “We asked for a miracle and they’re the miracle. “Without them coming in and working with her, I don’t know where she’d be. I’d like to say she’d be where she should, but I don’t think she would be.” On the morning of therapy sessions, Kenneth said Lillian knows what to expect and prepares accordingly. She looks out the window, waiting for a therapist to arrive. Kenneth said she knows all their names and even the cars they drive. She blows them kisses when they arrive and leave. “She’s excited to see them every week,” he said. “She loves being with them. Every week, it’s something different to her.” He and his wife were among those to speak up for the program’s renewal and Kenneth said it is awesome to know

the round-up was part of an ongoing program. Snyder noted the warrants served represented the tip of the iceberg. Law enforcement plan to have another round-up in the near future. Both Hicks and Solis praised the effort of the officers. “I think it’s a good program. The criminal justice system has a lot of outstanding warrants and we were happy to participate,” Solis said. Hicks agreed. “We were not really involved ... but we appreciate and support law enforcement efforts in serving these warrants. Victims of crimes are often concerned when a defendant remains at large.” Coon warned those with outstanding warrants need to take care of them, or face being picked up in the future. Chaves County Magistrate Court Manager Tobie Fouratt urged people to come forward. “Any person with an outstanding warrant is encouraged to avoid incarceration by addressing obligations prior to arrest.” “You can pay fines over the internet now,” explained Snyder. Information on outstanding warrants is available at the New Mexico Judiciary website, nmcourts.gov, or by contacting the Chaves County Magistrate Court in Roswell at 624-6088. j.palmer@rdrnews.com

they’ve been given more time. “The work that they do with these kids, I don’t think anyone else can do,” he said. Mindy Tanner and her husband, Adam, feel the same way. Their foster son had already been involved in the early intervention program before he was placed in their home. Mindy remembers the first time she saw his occupational and speech therapists work with him. “They were very loving to my son,” she said. “They just praised him and you could tell he enjoyed (the) services—in his mind, he’s not thinking of it as working, he’s like, ‘All the attention’s on me and I’m getting to play!’” But Mindy was even more impressed at the fact that the staff were so eager to work with her and advise her on what she could do to help outside of sessions. “They’re willing to have the parents as involved as the child,” she said. In a year’s time, their son, now 2, went from being 10 or 11 months behind other kids his age, Mindy said, to having little to no delay. “That speaks volumes to what Los Pasitos does and the work they do,” she said. “The things they do work. They know what they’re doing and they’re helping these children.” Mindy, who works in the medical field, said when children with delays don’t receive the services they need, they are likely to get worse. She said she and her husband will be forever grateful for what the program and its therapists have done. “In a manner of speaking, they rescued my son,” she said, noting that he loves his therapists to the point of being a little “possessive.” Their foster daughter, who is their son’s biological sister, though drug-affected, did not have delays, but the staff offered to monitor her progress and see that she continued to meet benchmarks. “They could have just said, ‘She’s fine, let’s move on,’ but ... they’re willing to put in the time and the effort to make sure my daughter doesn’t regress,” she said. “I was really touched by that. “That’s really what they do. I think that’s why it’s so important that they continue to have the state contract for early intervention because what they’re doing works.” igilmore@rdrnews.com

The tough road Puerto Rico must travel for statehood

SANTA FE—Oh, no. Don’t look. Puerto Ricans have decided they want to become a state. They are in for an even rougher time than New Mexico had. Puerto Rico suffers from the same difficulties New Mexico had but to an even greater degree. It has a different culture, different language and it is too far from Washington, D.C. Even more difficult were the politics of the situation. In 1850, President Zachary Taylor wanted to admit New Mexico to become a state as soon as it became a territory. But it was politically impossible because leading up to the Civil War every Western territory that wanted to become a state had to be paired with a territory that allowed slavery. Unfortunately all the slave territories had already been admitted. New Mexico did not permit slavery so its goose was cooked. Puerto Rico faces a similar dilemma. The Democratic Party is most

popular there. Democrats would be very likely to take both U.S. Senate seats and almost all the U.S. House seats. Washington, D.C. faces the same problem. Its quest for statehood has been stymied for decades. There are no Republican territories to offset Democrat requests. Democratic Hawaii and Republican Alaska were the last pair of states admitted to the Union. Western Washington State has tried hard to be separated from its coastal brethren where Democrats reign. But that is unlikely. Many states have a geographical difference in political philosophies.

New Mexico, for instance. It has been suggested by some, however, that these two states be allowed to split, creating two new conservative states, thereby allowing Washington, D.C. AND Puerto Rico to become states. The extra requirement would be that none of the four states created by splitting Washington State and New Mexico be allowed to keep their old name. That little maneuver would eliminate confusion over whether people are talking about Washington State or Washington, D.C. And it would eliminate confusion about whether New Mexico is part of the United States. With both of those possibilities being extreme long shots, Puerto Rico has an unenviable task. Up until now, it was content with its present commonwealth status. Puerto Ricans are U.S. citizens receiving most U.S. benefits but are not required to pay federal taxes. For many years that argument

appealed to most everyone but politicians who wanted to play on the big stage. But now with tensions over immigration laws, Puerto Ricans decided they would like it to be clear that they already are U.S. citizens and not required to show papers when they enter our country. There was some doubt about the conduct of the election, so President Obama has decided to conduct a new election paid for and monitored by federal officials for the first time. The choices are present status, statehood or independence. Statehood and the present status always drew the great majority of votes but there always was a small group pushing for independence, which Puerto Rico would have great trouble handling. But those wanting independence felt strongly. In 1950, two independence seekers tried to assassinate President Harry Truman. Those not wanting statehood also have a good point. They worry

about losing their culture and identity. They see themselves as a Latin American nation and as a Caribbean nation, not as an American state. Still, most Puerto Rican political leaders have long felt statehood would be best for Puerto Rico. So they have been asking Congress for statehood for years. They say they feel like second-class citizens. When they come to the states, they often are hassled for green cards and called immigrants. A 1998 vote by Congress was close. It even had the support of House Speaker Newt Gingrich. When it fell short, Puerto Rico went to the United Nations and asked to be declared a colony in need of international attention. When that didn’t work they tried a court suit. But it is hard to prove mistreatment when your commonwealth and its citizens receive most of the benefits of citizenship without paying federal taxes.

How to reduce crime: pay a nickel more for a beer

It turns out there is something we can all to do reduce crime and save lives that has absolutely nothing to do with guns: Pay a little more for beer and other forms of alcohol. In a fascinating article on The Washington Post’s “Wonkblog” last week, reporter Dylan Matthews reviewed the literature on crime intervention and discovered a dozen separate ways that crime can be reduced without fewer guns, more guns, tougher sentences, more cops or any of the other usual proposed remedies. At the top of the list was lead abatement. Not the lead in bullets, but the lead in gasoline, paints and other environmental sources. Lead is a potent neurological toxin and specifically impacts decision-making abilities. Over the past 20 years, research shows, the correlation between government programs to remove lead from gasoline and paint and reduced crime rates has been immense. Second only to less lead is higher taxes on alcohol. To quote Matthews: “Economist Sara Markowitz, for example, found in a study of U.S. crime patterns that a ‘single percent increase in the beer tax decreases the probability of assault by 0.45 percent’ and ‘a 1 percent decrease in the number of outlets that sell alcohol decreases the probability of rape by 1.75 percent.’ Researchers in Finland found that a 2004 cut in the country’s alcohol tax caused a sudden 17 percent spike in fatalities relative to the previous year. There’s preliminary evidence that alcohol taxes can reduce the number of U.S. female homicide victims. [Criminologist Mark] Kleiman cites findings of Duke’s Philip Cook to the effect that a doubling of the federal excise tax on alcohol would reduce homicide and automobile fatalities by 7 percent each, for a net 3,000 lives saved. What’s more, it would only cost twice-a-day drinkers (who, as it is, drink considerably more than average) $6 a month.” That being the case, you’d expect Congress to be considering increasing the excise tax on alcohol, right? Wrong. Congress is considering lowering it. In late March, 233 craft brewers from 46 states descended on Congress for a “lobbying day” on behalf of House Resolution 494. Like so many bills these days, it has a cute name: the Small Brewer Reinvesting and Expanding Workforce Act, or Small BREW Act. Small breweries that produce fewer than 2 million barrels a year pay a $7-per-barrel excise tax on the first 60,000 barrels brewed each year. They pay $18-per-barrel on every 31-gallon barrel after that. Only about 100 of the nation’s 2,360 craft breweries produce more than 15,000 barrels a year. The Small BREW Act would cut the $7 tax on the first 60,000 barrels in half, and reduce the tax on the 60,001st to 2-millionth barrel to $16. After 2 million, brewers would pay $18 a barrel, which is what big breweries already pay. The excise tax hasn’t increased since 1991. Had the tax kept up with inflation, small brewers would be paying $12 and big brewers $30. Big breweries — including local favorite Anheuser-Busch InBev — don’t much like this idea. Their trade group, the Beer Institute, is expected to introduce a new version of its cutely named Brewery Employment and Excise Relief Act (BEER, get it?) later this year. The version in the last Congress would have cut taxes in half for every brewer, regardless of size. The Beer Institute has touted the BEER Act as a way to give a break to the poor, downtrodden working class beer-drinker. The Small Brewers Association touts the Small BREW Act as a way to help small businesses at a cost of a mere $67 million to the government. But the math doesn’t help the poor working man argument. At $7 a barrel, the price of a $5 pint of microbrew contains less than 3 cents in federal excise taxes. A pint of Budweiser has 7.2 cents worth of $18-a-barrel federal excise taxes in it. A six-pack of Bud has 32.4 cents of federal taxes built into the price. On the other hand, if you doubled the excise tax, the poor workingman would hardly notice. But the data show that thousands of hard-drinking bad drivers and bad guys would. You’d reduce auto accidents, homicide deaths, rape and other forms of assault. Congress, as usual, is headed in the wrong direction.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch

What type of birth control would fit our times?

Addressing a meeting of Planned Parenthood last Friday, President Obama accused prolifers of wanting to “turn back the clock to policies more suited to the 1950s than the 21st century.” Like any decade, the 50s had its problems — racism, discrimination, sexism — but I’ll defend the 50s on other grounds, if the president will defend the decade that followed. In the 50s, for much of mainstream America drugs were something you bought at a pharmacy with a prescription; living together meant getting married first, then having babies; abortion was not legal; our culture wasn’t the enemy; metal detectors were

DEAR DOCTOR K: I have low back pain. A friend of mine with back pain had surgery, but I want to avoid that. What are my options? DEAR READER: There are many different causes of low back pain, and therefore many different treatments. So the first step is to diagnose the cause. Your primary care doctor probably will be able to do that, just based on your symptoms and the physical examination. Sometimes the diagnosis may not be straightforward, and the primary care doctor either will order tests or refer you to a back pain specialist, or both. Back pain is quite common. The U.S. gover nment conducted a survey (the National

alive during the procedures. Is this the 21st century the president prefers? It is actions like this — not the policies of the 50s — that have weakened America and harmed the women the president claims to be defending. How many women has the president talked to who lament their abortions and say they would have made another choice, if they had been shown alternatives? Does the president champion the rights of these women? According to FactCheck.org, as an Illinois state senator, Obama twice voted against the so-called “born-alive” bills that would have “defined any aborted fetus

that showed signs of life as a ‘born alive infant’ entitled to legal protection.” He opposed the bills, he said, “as backdoor attacks on a woman’s legal right to abortion.” He chose politics, not lives. In his speech to Planned Parenthood, the president never mentioned the word “abortion,” preferring to talk instead about “women’s health.” Could it be because 40 years after the historic Roe v. Wade decision, public opinion on abortion has changed very little? For the most part, those who favor it, favor it; those who do not, do not.

Fortunately, very few of the millions of people like you with back pain require surgery. Simpler treatments are not only available; they’re much more likely to relieve the pain. A common cause of low back pain is injury to the muscles and ligaments around the spine, something that doesn’t benefit from surgery. There are disks between the bones of the spine, and if they rupture, they can pinch nerves that lead to the buttocks and legs. Only occasionally is surgery necessary to fix this condition. If your back pain is so severe that it interferes with simple activities, call your doctor. If the pain has been going on for several weeks,

call your doctor. If, along with your low back pain, you have certain worrisome “red flag” symptoms, you definitely should see your doctor. Each of these symptoms increases your risk of a more serious cause of low back pain, including kinds that might benefit from surgery: • You have a persistent fever and loss of energy. • You sometimes lose control of your bowel movements or urine. • Your legs seem weak. • Your legs are numb. • You have had cancer. • You have thin bones (osteoporosis). • You are on a medicine

What happens in the exchange zone?

OPINION II

Roswell Daily Record

It is what happens in the exchange zone that counts. We hold the baton we run with for such a short period of time. We receive it from another, carry it for a while, and then hand off to the one who follows. In track and field competitions, there are team relay events. In these events the goal is for a team of runners to cover the course as quickly as possible carrying a baton from the starting line to the finish line. Because the race is a team event, how well you finish the race depends on the actions of others. The baton is about 12 inches long, smoothly cylindrical, free from adornments, and is often referred to as the “stick.” When a baton hits the ground it makes an empty “ping” sound, a sound no runner ever wants to hear. On a highly competitive level, races are won or lost because of what happens in the exchange zones. In Olympic competition, in the 2008 Beijing Olympics, both the American men and women dropped the baton in the 4 x 100 meter relay, failing to place despite being international favorites to win the gold. In 2004 in Athens, shoddy baton passing by the American men allowed a British team to pull off an upset and the women were disqualified after a failed exchange. Finally in London in 2012, the American women got the exchange down, won the gold, and broke a 27-year-old world record. The men broke the men’s world record also, but finished second to a faster Jamaican team anchored by Usain Bolt. A lot has to go right for a smooth exchange of the baton to occur. It takes each team member doing their part properly. Timing is critical. It should be timed so that when the approaching runner hits the mark, the outgoing runner starts to sprint. Form is also critical. The receiving runner reaches back and makes an inverted “V” with his hand in an upward position and his arm parallel to the track. The approaching runner moves his arm in a downward motion and places the baton in the receiving runner’s upturned outstretched

JUST A THOUGHT

hand. The delivering runner should always run through the pass, never slowing down until after the exchange is complete. The passing runner must stay in his lane at all times both before and after the pass to avoid interfering with others exchanging the baton also. Just from this overview of the transfer, you can see that there are many moving parts that can go wrong. Obviously the ultimate goal of passing a relay baton is to do it in the fastest way possible and it is a work of art when it happens seamlessly. Good things happen when smooth exchanges occur. You see it doesn’t really matter how talented the carriers of the baton are if the passing of the baton does not go smoothly. The thing is the exchange. If you are breathing, which I would guess most of you are, you have a baton in your hand. My question to you is “What are you going to do with it?” Is there something in your life that is bigger than you? Something that you are able to influence in your days here, but that lives on after you are gone? You are who you are today because of others who have passed the baton to you. The influence of the lives of others has shaped you to the person you are today. You have taken the history you received and have made your own decisions to get to where you are today. You are out on the course with maybe 70, 80, or 90 years to walk this planet and then you are gone. The starting line of your baton was the creation of Adam and Eve. None of us knows the finish line. But each of us has an opportunity to impact what happens after we pass the baton on to others. Looking up the track behind you, you can identify and recognize those who have carried the baton from the starting line to you.

The baton may have been fumbled when it was given to you or it may have been a smooth exchange, but you decide what happens to the baton when you are carrying it. You will also be involved in whether or not your exchange of the baton is a seamless exchange or if the one who takes it from you has to pick it up off the ground. When we talk about success involving the baton, each of us has the power to define it in our own lives. Our lives should not be about ourselves. We can’t take the baton with us. No one ever has. Over the spectrum of life, our time here is very short. Are you running a good race and preparing for the exchange ahead? My challenge to you is to do the best you are able with the baton that you have been given. It is only yours for a while. Recognize those who have gone before you. Appreciate them. It is because of them that you have the baton today. The baton goes from one generation to the next. We are called to carry the baton from the generations before us to the generations that follow us. If we forget those who came before us, we may forget those who come after us. When it is all said and done, your life is nothing more or nothing less than what you do with the baton in your hand in between the exchange zones. You have been entrusted with it for just a little while. Be sure you make a difference with the days you carry it and then equip the recipient for a smooth exchange at the end of your time. That is the best any of us can do. We should not forget that it is an honor to carry the baton. Carry it well, and when you hand it off, what you have done with the baton will live on in those you pass it on to. Just a thought...

The president and Planned Parenthood’s other defenders claim that if the organization were to be denied tax dollars, there would be fewer mammograms, cancer screenings and other services available, especially to poor women. Is this anything more than a distraction from Planned Parenthood’s real purpose — providing abortions? According to analysis from the Chiaroscuro Foundation, a not-for-profit organization seeking to reduce the number of abortions in New York, Planned Parenthood “provides more abortions than any other organization in the United States, about one of every four U.S. abortions.” “Planned Parenthood’s bottom line is numbers,” according to a 2011 op-ed for The Hill newspaper written by former clinic director Abby Johnson, “And, with abortion as its primary money-maker, that means implementing a quota. ... I was directed to double the numbers of abortions our clinic performed in order to drive up revenue.” Planned Parenthood spends a lot on electing liberal Democrats to office. It can afford to. According to its 2011-2012 annual report, the organization reported more than $1.2 billion in net assets and

Ideas to avoid vehicle theft and burglary A6 Sunday, May 5, 2013

LOCAL

STEVE WOLFE ROSWELL SAFE COALITION

Any time a group of folks, especially older people, gets into one of those “the way it used to be” conversations, you can bet that one of them will say: “I remember when, in Roswell, New Mexico, at the end of the day we used to be able to come home from work, park our car out in the street or in the driveway, leave the keys in it, and walk into our unlocked home for the night, and never give it a second thought. Probably, we would not even lock our front door at night.” Well, no more! In the past several days, we have had several incidents of stolen vehicles and other burglaries and thefts revolving around

vehicles. So in the interest of timeliness, I want to write about that. But then, it occurs to me “Didn’t I just talk about that the other day?” It has actually been quite a while, so here goes, and even if I’m being redundant, consider these thoughts. One of the constant things we remind people is that you should never leave your car running and

unattended, even to warm it up on a chilly morning, or to dash into a business. Would-be thieves could be walking by and decide that they just don’t want to walk anymore. You are away from the car, perhaps inside your home drinking that last cup of coffee or inside a convenience store buying milk, and there is nothing standing in the crook’s way. Believe me, such persons are that brazen, and if the circumstances are right, they will gladly take your vehicle right from your own driveway. It seems obvious, but you should never leave your keys in the car or in the ignition. That is really making it easy! Another frequent occurrence is burglary from unlocked cars. Always roll up your windows and lock the

Roswell Daily Record

car, even if it is parked in front of your own home. Burglars and car thieves are looking for opportunities to steal and it doesn’t take them but a second to scope it out.

Similarly, we are advised not to leave the keys in your car even when it is locked inside your garage. This is one of the more difficult things we are told to do, but consider this. A burglar comes into your home, steals your stuff and then drives the loot away in your car! Therefore, as difficult as it may be, take your keys into the house with you. When you go shopping, always park in a busy and well-lighted area. If you must keep valuables in your car, hide them in the glove compartment, under the

seat, or in the trunk. Thieves are generally in a hurry, and if they cannot easily see something valuable, they will likely pass your vehicle up for the next one with the purse on the front seat and the packages in the back.

Finally, I want to ask you, as a reader of this column, for some help. More and more often, we are told that we should not carry our registration and insurance information in our vehicle. There is an identity theft risk in doing so. However, we also know that we are obliged by law enforcement officials to have them available. Any ideas how to handle this? Call me at 622-4014. Be safe!

CARLSBAD CAVERNS TO INCREASE ENTRANCE FEE

CARLSBAD — Sixteen years after the last increase from $5 to $6, Carlsbad Caverns National Park will raise its entrance fee beginning this summer to $10 per person (age 15 and up). In the past, all fees collected went into the General Treasury. In 1996, a “fee demonstration” program was established by Congress allowing one-third of all national parks, including Carlsbad Caverns, to retain up to 80 percent of the money collected. The remaining 20 percent is pooled for use by national parks that cannot collect entrance fees. Superintendent John Benjamin said the $4 increase “is still quite a

bargain for three full days of fun in a fabulous underground world. The feedback we get from visitors consistently is that they have been surprised that we don’t charge more for entry into this beautiful cavern.” The fee demonstration funds are used for a variety of projects to improve visitor enjoyment, health and safety. The park has used fee money for important projects that were not covered by the park’s budget including the complete redesign of the visitor center, renovation of underground restrooms, replacement of the elevator motors and other equipment, educational exhibits in the visitor center and a new Carls-

bad Caverns visitor orientation video.

“In addition,” Benjamin said, “The increase will pay for much-needed repairs to failing infrastructure. Many of the park’s buildings are very old, built in the 1930s and 40s, and are deteriorating and in desperate need of repair. The increase in fees will help the park fund these projects as well.” If you want to comment to the park on this fee increase, email at cave_park_information@np s.gov, by mail to Fee Increase, 3225 National Parks Highway, Carlsbad, NM 88220 or by phone 575-785-2232.

More work ahead in Ala for Scottsboro Boys pardons Roswell Daily Record

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) — Though the Alabama Legislature has cleared the way for posthumous pardons of the Scottsboro Boys, much work — from legal documents to public hearings — remains before the names of the nine black teens wrongly convicted more than 80 years ago are officially cleared. The Scottsboro Boys were convicted by all-white juries of raping two white women on a train in Alabama in 1931. All but the youngest were sentenced to death, even though one of the women recanted her story. All eventually got out of prison. Only one received a pardon before he died. The case became a symbol of the tragedies wrought by racial injustice. It inspired songs, books and films. A Broadway musical was staged in 2010, the same year a museum opened that was dedicated to the case. The Scottsboro Boys’ appeals resulted in U.S. Supreme Court decisions that criminal defendants are entitled to effective counsel and that blacks can’t be systematically excluded from criminal juries. In April, the state Legislature passed a bill to allow posthumous pardons in the case, and Gov. Robert Bentley signed it into law.

But before the pardons are officially issued, the state Board of Pardons and Paroles must receive applications for them from a circuit judge or district attorney in one of the counties where the Scottsboro Boys’ original trials occurred. The applications must show that pardons would remedy social injustices associated with racial discrimination. Then the board would have to hold a public hearing and vote to grant the pardons, Assistant Executive Director Eddie Cook Jr. said. “No one has sent in anything yet,” he said of the needed paperwork. Sheila Washington, founder of the Scottsboro Boys Museum and Cultural Center in northeast Alabama, said that will happen soon. “Trust me. It is not going away after we got it this far,” she said. When Washington started a campaign for pardons in the case, she discovered state law did not permit them for dead defendants. She worked with Republican state Sen. Arthur Orr of Decatur to get the new legislation passed in April. It permits the parole board to issue posthumous pardons in cases at least 80 years old. “It’s time to right this wrong,” Bentley said at the signing. Washington said she took a

Sunday, May 5, 2013

break after the law passed, but added that now is the time to get back to work and get them issued. She said she will have help from researchers at the University of Alabama in compiling the necessary information. Orr agreed with Washington that the paperwork will be completed and the applications filed, likely by an official in Jackson County where the first trial occurred. The work will likely take a few weeks. To support their paperwork, they can use a resolution championed by Democratic Rep. John Robinson of Scottsboro that also became law last month. It says the nine “were the victims of gross injustice” and are considered formally exonerated. Cook said the parole board can’t start the pardon process until it gets the paperwork. “The groundwork to do this is on someone else’s shoulders,” he said. But he said it will be a fascinating case to handle once the paperwork is filed. “This case is taught in most law schools in the country,” he said. Once the pardons are granted, Washington’s work won’t be done. She said she hopes public attention about the pardons will help

Most of Scottsboro Boys faded from public view after being released by the state. Only one had a relative attend a ceremony

at the Scottsboro museum when the governor signed the pardon legislation.

Washington said her goal is to for all the graves to be marked with tombstones noting the Scottsboro Boys’ place in American history.

Obama NRA, gun control advocates say fight far from over returns after trip to Mexico and Costa Rica

President Barack Obama walks down the stairs from Air Force One upon arrival at Andrews Air Force Base, in Md. Saturday.

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama is back in the U.S. after a trip that took him to Mexico and Costa Rica over three days. Air Force One arrived at Maryland’s Andrews Air Force Base, outside of Washington, about 6:45 EDT Saturday night. The president returned to the White House just after 7 p.m. Obama had left the U.S. last Thursday. In Mexico, Obama cheered advances in that nation’s economy and voiced his support for an overhaul of U.S. immigration policies. While visiting Costa Rica, the president urged leaders in Central American to integrate their economies, reduce their high energy costs and confront violence in the region.

HO U S TO N (A P ) — N at ion al Rifle Association leaders told members Saturday that the fight against gun control legislation is far from over, with battles yet to com e i n Co n g r es s an d n ext year’s midter m elections, but t h ey vo w ed th a t n o n e in t h e organization will ever have to surrender their weapons. Proponents of gun control also asserted that they are in their fight for the long haul and have not been disheartened by last m on t h ’ s d ef e at o f a b ill t h at w ou l d h a ve e x pa n de d b ackground checks for gun sales. The debate over gun control legislation has reached a fever pitch in the wake of December’s mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., in which 20 first-graders and six educators were killed. T h e e xp a n de d ba ck gr ou n d checks bill supported by President Barack Obama and other lawmakers in response to the Connecticut shooting failed to pass in the Senate. D u r i n g a f i er y an d d efian t speech Saturday, Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre, the public face of the NRA, said the “political and media elites” have tried to use Sandy Hook and other recent shootings “to blame us, to shame us, to compromise our freedom for their agenda.” He said the proposed bill “got the defeat that it deserved” and t h at t h e m ea s u r e w ou l d d o n o th i n g t o p r e ve n t th e ne xt mass shooting. “We will never surrender our guns, never,” LaPierre told several thousand people during the organization’s annual member meeting, which is part of the yearly NRA convention being held this weekend in Houston. More than 70,000 NRA members are expected to attend the threeday convention, which began F ri d a y . A c r es of d i sp la ys of rifles, pistols, swords and hunt-

ing gear could be found inside the convention hall. James Porter, the incoming NRA president, said Obama’s gun control efforts have created a “political spontaneous combustion” that has prompted millions of Americans to become first-time gun owners and created a national outrage that will manifest itself in next year’s midterm elections. “The Senate and House are up for grabs,” Porter said during Saturday’s meeting. “We can direct this massive energy of sp on tan eou s c om b ust io n t o regain the political high ground. We do that and Obama can be stopped.” LaPierr e said the NRA now has a record 5 million members, bu t h e u rg ed f o r in cr e ased membership and added that it “must be 10 million strong” in its battle against gun control. Meanwhile, across the street from the convention, advocates of expanded background checks and other gun control measures vowed to continue their fight. Kellye Bowman of the Houston chapter of Moms Demand Action fo r Gu n S e nse in A m er i ca, a national grassroots effort promoting gun contr ol that was started after the Sandy Hook shooting, said her organization was not d isc ou r ag ed by l ast month’s failure of the gun cont r ol b ill . Sh e sa id i ts defea t actually increased her group’s membership. Bowman, who described herself as a fifth generation Texan wh o g r ew u p s hoo ti ng gu n s, said her group’s primary focus now is meeting with legislators and supporting those who agree with their efforts and using the ballot box to remove those that don’t. “We can turn any mom into an activist. They need to start listening to us,” said Bowman, who was among more than 60

protesters who had gathered Saturday afternoon across the street from the convention. Many of the protesters held up signs that read: “Texans For Smart Gun Regulations” and “ 90 % Wa nt A B a ck gr ou n d Check,” a reference to recent polls that have shown that up to 90 percent of Americans are in favor of expanded background checks. A n ot h er o f t h e pr ot est er s, Caleb Rogers, 33, a residential appraiser from Houston, said he d oe sn ’ t b e lieve t h e N R A is unstoppable. “I think their time will come when they have to listen to common sense and do what’s right f or t h e cou nt r y,” he said . “I think someday, maybe not today or tomorrow or the next decade, b ut so med ay we’ ll get th er e, where there is a little common s en se ab o ut wh at k i nd s of

weap on s we wan t on th e streets.” Gun control supporters have promised to keep pressing the issue and have made significant strides at the state level, including passing new restrictions on firearms in Colorado and Connecticut. LaPierre implored lawmakers to direct their efforts at enforcing current federal gun laws and sending violent criminals who break them to prison, instead of focusing on new gun control legislation. But LaPierre added the NRA is preparing for “round two” of the gun control fight. “They are coming after us with a vengeance to destroy us and every ounce of our freedom,” he said. “It’s up to us, every single gun owner, every American to get to work right now and meet them head-on.”

During the latter stages of the District 4-4A tennis tournament on Saturday, much of the attention was focused on the title match of the boys doubles bracket between Goddard’s Konnor Kundomal and Derrick Collins and Artesia’s Jaevan Grado and

nament that starts Wednesday in Albuquerque. Court 5 featured two teams fighting for one spot in the state tournament and, in the end, it was the Goddard duo of Sanjay Yangalasetty and Martin Joyce who beat Roswell’s Jesus Atienzo and Max Macias 6-3, 6-2. Joyce opened on serve and, four points later, the Rockets had a 1-0 lead. The next four games followed suit as both teams refused to be broken, but that changed on Macias’ second service game. The Coyotes had a chance to hold serve, but an error by Macias brought it to deuce. Goddard got the first ad following a Joyce winner, but Yangalasetty sailed an overhead to bring it back to deuce. The Rockets had the next two advantages as well, but couldn’t close the deal. Roswell had two chances to hold serve, but a double fault and an unfortunate net error by Macias brought the sixth deuce of the game. The Rockets took the advantage with a double fault and picked up the first break of the first set when Atienzo’s volley went into

As anyone who has ever filled out an NCAA tournament bracket knows, rarely does a bracket go chalk. In the District 4-4A girls doubles tour nament on Saturday, things seemed to be following the seeds. Roswell’s Jesse Jennings and Alicia Romero proved why they were the top seed after beating the secondseeded Artesia duo of Alondra Dominguez and Hope Kraft 6-3, 6-3 to take the district title. The third-place match featured the third seed (Goddard’s Anisha Suri and Sidra Ali) and fourth seed (Roswell’s Latricia Velasquez and Ashley Can-

non). That is where the chalk ran out. The Coyote duo beat the Rocket duo 6-1, 6-4 to earn the final spot in the state tournament that starts on Wednesday in Albuquerque. After the teams split the first two sets, the Coyotes took control after breaking Ali. Two double faults quickly gave Roswell a 30-0 lead, but Goddard took the next two points to tie it at 30. Roswell reclaimed the lead thanks to an Ali error and the Rockets took a 2-1 lead after Cannon blasted a winner down the alley. The Coyotes won the next See GIRLS, Page B4

Favorite Orb triumphs with late charge

Orb, with jockey Joel Rosario aboard, pulls away for the win in the 139th running of the Kentucky Derby, Saturday.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Way back in the pack heading into the final turn, Orb was calm even if his jockey wasn’t. Churning through a sloppy track that resembled creamy peanut butter, the bay colt picked up speed and, one by one, blew past rivals. By that time, jockey Joel Rosario knew he was aboard the Kentucky Derby winner. Orb powered to a 2 1⁄2-length victory Saturday at Churchill Downs, giving trainer Shug McGaughey and Rosario their first Derby wins. “I was so far behind,” Rosario

said. “He was very relaxed. It’s exactly what I wanted.” Rosario had Orb in the clear on the outside and they forged to the lead in deep stretch, with enough momentum to hold off 34-1 shot Golden Soul. It was a popular victory before a crowd of 151,616, which poured enough late money on Orb to make him the 5-1 favorite, a position Revolutionary had owned most of the day. McGaughey, a 62-year-old native of Lexington, finally got the Derby win he had long sought. Orb was

Roswell Daily Record the most mundane of drills. “He doesn’t — you can see him — rest on his greatness,” Wade said. “He continues to work at it. That’s what makes him special. He leaves nothing to chance.” The formal announcement of James’ fourth Most Valuable Player award is planned for Sunday, the eve of the Eastern Conference semifinals for the Heat. The honor will vault him into an elite category shared by Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Michael Jordan, Bill Russell and Wilt Chamberlain, the only other players to win the award at least four times. James said he was humbled to keep such company. “I’m a historian of the game,” he said. “I know the game. I know these guys paved the way for myself and the rest of us.” James’ other MVPs came in 2009, 2010 and 2012. He and Russell are the only players to win the award four times in five years, and he and Abdul-Jabbar are the only players to twice win the award in consecutive seasons. At age 28, James isn’t resting on his laurels. That’s why he kept shooting with teammates Ray Allen and Mario Chalmers after practice Saturday, while the other Heat players had headed for the showers. “I don’t know my ceiling,” James said. “I don’t stop trying to improve my game — just like today, being in here with Rio and Ray, the last guys to leave the court. I want to continue to maximize what I have.” James said his primary goal remains helping the Heat win a second successive NBA title. They’ll open their conference semifinals series at home Monday against the Chicago Bulls, who beat Brooklyn 99-93 in Game 7 of their series Saturday night. The Heat have been idle since Sunday, when they completed a series sweep of Milwaukee. The most scrutinized subject during the layoff has been Wade’s sore right knee, and while he expects to play in Game 1, he said he’ll likely have to cope with discomfort for the rest of the playoffs. “I told the coaches, ‘Don’t ask me how I’m doing,”’ Wade said to a cluster of reporters. “The mind is a powerful thing. Everything is mind over matter. So when you’re dealing with something, you’re dealing it. You understand what it is. “But when people continue to pat you on the back and ask you if you’re doing all right and how you are feeling, you start to feel like, ‘Well, something is wrong with me.”’ Wade smiled at the media scrum. “So I would like for you all not to ask me anymore. Thank you.” Injuries to Wade and other stars around the league this postseason stand in contrast to James’ durability, one of his most remarkable traits. In a 10-year career, he has never missed more than seven games in a season, suggesting he’s likely to remain a force — and an MVP contender — for years to come. Jordan was 35 the last time he was chosen MVP, in 1998. Abdul-Jabbar won for the final time at 33, Chamberlain and Russell at 31.

Local briefs: Rockets complete season sweep of Roswell

Goddard capped a 22-4 season on Saturday with a sweep of southside rival Roswell at the Launching Pad. The Rockets cruised to a 12-3 win in Game 1 and followed that with a 24-1 fiveinning win in Game 2. The wins wrapped up the District 4-4A title and, in all likelihood, the No. 2 seed in the upcoming state tournament for the Rockets. In Game 1, Roswell jumped ahead in the top half of the first, but it was a short-lived lead. Goddard, which finished 7-1 in district play, scored twice in its half of the first and pushed its lead to 7-1 over the next four innings. Roswell closed to within 7-3 in the sixth, but Goddard closed things out with five in its half of the

sixth. Christian Wentland picked up the victory for the Rockets after sprinkling five hits over six innings and striking out 10 on the mound. Josh Wagner led the Rocket offense with three hits, while Taryn Nunez, Brad Blackwell and Cal Villareal each contributed two hits apiece. For the Coyotes, Devin Dubiel took the loss after allowing 10 runs in five innings of work. Stephen Lucero and Bear Kyser were each 2 for 3. In Game 2, Goddard scored at least four runs in each of its trips to the plate and ran away with a victory. The Rockets scored six in the first, six in the sec-

ond, eight in the third and four in the fourth en route to the win. Cody French earned the win for Goddard after giving up just two hits and striking out nine in five innings of work. Mark McCool was 4 for 4, Nunez and Austin Rader each had three hits, and Blackwell and Devin Hubbard each had two hits. Kyser took the loss for Roswell (1-25, 0-8 district) after giving up 12 runs on seven hits in two innings of work. He also accounted for one of Roswell’s two hits. Lucero had the other hit,

NMMI 7-16, LUNA 3-15 The Institute closed its season on Saturday with a sweep of Luna to finish 18-38 overall and 9-27 in the WJCAC in coach Chris Cook’s first season at the helm. The Broncos finished the year with four wins in their final games. In Game 1, the Broncos jumped ahead with four runs in the first inning and never led by fewer than three runs after that. Jacob Gomez earned the victory, allowing three runs on seven hits and striking out five in a complete-game performance on the hill. Caleb Mitchell led the Bronco offense, going 2 for 3 with two RBIs. Jake Todd went 2 for 2 with an RBI.

Elvis Perez, Zach Habarka, Tyler Gibson and Correy Davis each drove in a run for NMMI. In Game 2, the two teams combined for 31 runs on 28 hits in a wild nine-inning affair. NMMI again scored four times in the first, but saw that lead slip away when Luna plated two in the second, four in the third and two in the fourth. NMMI took the lead back in the seventh with six runs to make it 11-10, but Luna again answered, scoring four in the eighth. After NMMI scored twice in its half of the eighth, Luna went up 15-13 with a run in the ninth to set up the Institute’s walk-off win. Austin Grier started the ninth with a triple and scored when Mitchell reached on an error. Three batters later, with runners on second and third, Gibson knocked a single into left center, plating Mitchell and Perez for the win. Habarka picked up the victory

for NMMI after pitching the final 1 2 ⁄ 3 innings and allowing one run on one hit. At the plate, six Broncos had at least two hits — Grier (three hits, three runs), Perez (three hits, three runs), Gibson (two hits, runs and RBIs), Angel Peguero (two hits, two RBIs), Davis (two hits, four RBIs) and Niovel Ruiz (two hits, two RBIs).

Three school marks fall LEVELLAND, Texas — Three NMMI records fell on Saturday at the Region V Championships at South Plains College. Etta Briscoe and Ana Baleveicau broke individual marks and the 4x400-meter relay team shattered the old school mark by nearly eight seconds. Briscoe’s record came in the shot put with a throw of 33 feet, 5 3⁄4 inches, which was enough for third in the event. Baleveicau set a school mark in

the 400 with a time of 59.42 seconds. She finished sixth in the event. The 4x400 relay team of Klaudia Szych, Karla Palacios, Alisha Dickinson and Baleveicau finished sixth with a time of 4:07.96, besting the old mark of 4:15.91. Szych also clocked a nationalqualifying time of 2:20.38 in the 800, finishing fourth in the event. The top finisher for the Broncos was Briscoe, who was runner-up in the hammer throw with a distance of 79-9. She was also third in the discus with a throw of 846. New Year Aliki was fourth in the discus (74-4) and Tutasi Smith was seventh with a throw of 61-6. Other top finishers for the Broncos were Smith (shot put; sixth), Palacios (400 hurdles; sixth), Aliki (shot put; eighth), Dickinson (400; eighth), Meriel Simpson (10th in the 100 and 11th in the 200).

NBA playoffs: Bulls beat Nets in Game 7 to advance

NEW YORK (AP) — Joakim Noah climbed over the baseline seats, his foot that hurt so much two weeks ago that he feared he couldn’t play looking pain-free as he embraced his mother. The first Game 7 in Brooklyn belonged not to the Nets, but to the guy who played here in high school. “I’ll remember this for the rest of my life,” Noah said. Injured, ill and just as deter mined as ever, the Chicago Bulls beat the Nets 99-93 on Saturday night to win the firstround series. Noah had 24 points and 14 rebounds, and Marco Belinelli also scored 24 points to help the Bulls advance to a second-round series against defending champion Miami that starts Monday night. Carlos Boozer added 17 points as the Bulls shook off injuries to two starters and every run the Nets tried to make in the second half to win a Game 7 on the road for the first time in franchise history. “I’m just so proud of this team. We’ve been fighting through so much all year and to be in this situation, play on the biggest stage in the world and to be able to win and now play against the Heat, all these experiences, I (don’t) take those for granted,” Noah said.

four games to take the first set 6-1. Roswell carried that momentum into the second set and, holding a 21 lead, once again had the set’s first break. With Ali on serve, Goddard took a 15-0 lead when Velasquez couldn’t handle a first serve. An error by Ali tied the game at 15, but a lob error by Velasquez gave the lead back to the Rockets. Velasquez made up for the error with a winner at the net and Roswell took its first lead of the game after a double fault. The Coyotes finished the break when Velasquez once again put away a shot at the net. Roswell’s lead ballooned to 5-2 before the Rockets made things interesting by taking the next two games. It wouldn’t get more interesting, however, as the Coyotes closed the match by taking four of the five points in the 10th game. Roswell coach Kelly McDonald said that he was proud of how all his girls played. “I don’t know how I could be any happier with the results,” he said. “Getting all six of them in, that is obviously what we were hoping for.”

The Bulls opened a 17point halftime lead with a rare of fensive outburst, and found a way to get big baskets every time the Nets pulled close to win the NBA’s only do-or -die game of the first round. “I thought our guys, we took a big punch in Game 1 and we kept fighting back and that’s been the story of the season,” Bulls coach T om Thibodeau said. Deron Williams had 24 points, seven assists and six rebounds for the Nets. They were trying to become the ninth NBA team to win a series after trailing 3-1. But they had a horrendous first-half defensive per for mance and Joe Johnson was bad all game on offense, finishing with six points on 2-of-14 shooting, including 1 of 9 from 3-point range. With Luol Deng (illness) and Kirk Hinrich (bruised left calf) out again and Derrick Rose still not ready to return from last year’s torn ACL, the Bulls leaned on Noah, who could barely play when the Bulls were blown out here two weeks ago in Game 1 because of plantar fasciitis in his right foot. He logged 41 minutes and shot 12 of 17 while also blocking six shots. “It’s disappointing. We won Game 6, we felt like this was our series, but they came out and played

Singles

Goddard freshman Brittany Maidment cruised through the singles tournament on her way to the District 4-4A title. In her first match, Maidment downed fellow Rocket Alex Casario 6-0, 6-0 and, in the semifinals, she dispatched Roswell’s Mariana Flores 6-0, 6-0. In the title match, Maidment outlasted Roswell’s Deisy Ruiz 6-2, 6-3. Holm said that there is no telling how far Maidment can go in the state tournament. “Brittany Maidment comes in as the No. 1 seed and she is just heads and shoulders above everybody,” he said. “She just strokes the ball with such confidence. Looking at where she was two or three months ago and where she is today, she’s not even the same player. She hits the ball hard, hits it with confidence and runs players around. “If Brittany can get on a tear, there is no telling how far she can go.” Ruiz beat Goddard’s Stephanie Baker 6-2, 6-2 and Goddard’s Christina Sartain 6-0, 6-0 to earn her spot in the championship match. In the third-place match, Flores earned a spot in the state tournament with a 6-2, 6-1 win over Sartain. l.foster@rdrnews.com

a great game,” Williams said. “Noah, like I said, he’s a warrior. He battled through his injuries and just had a monster game. We really had no answers for him down low tonight.” Noah helped the Bulls spoil the Nets’ first home Game 7 in their NBA history at the end of their first season in Brooklyn. They had played only one Game 7 in all their years while they were based in New Jersey, falling at Detroit in 2004. Chicago improved to 1-6 in road Game 7s. Deng, tested for meningitis earlier in the week, was back in the hospital Friday night and unable to travel. Hinrich warmed up in hopes of playing before he was ruled out. It didn’t matter to the Bulls, who backed up Thibodeau’s vow that they would have no excuses and play well. Coming out ready to work, the Bulls got their first two baskets on offensive rebounds by Boozer and Noah, and they led most of the first quarter before bringing a 29-25 lead to the second on Taj Gibson’s jumper with 0.8 seconds left. It was 40-36 before the Bulls took control with solid offensive execution and poor Nets defense. Noah had consecutive baskets before seldom-used Daequan Cook made a 3pointer to cap an 11-2 run, and after a basket by Andray Blatche, Boozer, Nate Robinson and Noah ran off the next six points to give Chicago a 57-40 lead as the crowd began to

boo. “I think we weren’t as aggressive as they were, especially on the boards and the defensive end in the first half,” Nets interim coach P.J. Carlesimo said. The Bulls capped it with a stunningly easy dunk by Boozer with 1.2 seconds left off an inbounds pass, sending the Bulls to the locker room with a 61-44 advantage. Brooklyn burst out of the locker room with a 104 run, and back-to-back 3pointers later in the third period by Gerald Wallace

Rocket coach Jerry Holm said that he was pleased with the play of Yangalasetty and Joyce. “They have been clicking for a while,” he said. “They have put together some really nice runs. They shut down Roswell’s No. 1 team and I am really pleased with these guys.” Roswell coach Kelly McDonald said that he was disappointed for Macias and Atienzo. “Obviously with Max and Jesus, I am disappointed,” he said. “Not in their effort, but I know they can play better.

The Nets opened the fourth with just one point in the first five minutes as consecutive baskets by Boozer pushed the lead back into double digits.

Today, with the match on the line, they both stepped up and closed it out. Those guys have been solid, so it will be real interesting to see what they can do at state.”

Pope won his first match 6-2, 6-0 against Steven Hornik, but fell to Natera 6-0, 6-3 in the semifinals. That loss put Pope in the do-or-die third place match and he responded with a 6-5, 7-5 win over Darnell. McDonald said that he was proud of Pope’s play. “He actually was the top seeded player in the boys draw for singles, so I think he was feeling a little pressure as the No. 1 seed,” he said. “He was very disappointed with the way he played his first match, but I wasn’t. I thought he played pretty tough. He was able to battle back in that last match to make state. I am very proud of Brighton.” l.foster@rdrnews.com

Notebook: O’Neill loses bid for repeat LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Trainer Doug O’Neill came up short in his bid to defend his Kentucky Derby title. O’Neill, who won in 2012 with I’ll Have Another, ended up with Goldencents finishing 17th in a 19-horse field on Saturday. The run by Goldencents also ended Kevin Krigger’s hope of becoming the first AfricanAmerican jockey to win the race in more than a century. Krigger said Goldencents didn’t have the kick to keep up with a quick field on a sloppy track. “It just wasn’t our race,” Krigger said. Krigger finished one spot behind countryman Victor Lebron aboard Frac Daddy. They were the first two jockeys from the U.S. Virgin Islands to ride in the Derby. Louisville men’s basketball coach Rick Pitino, a part owner of Goldencents, appeared confident of keeping a winning streak alive when he stood in the paddock before the race. But his hopes for another big win ended a month after the Cardinals won the NCAA championship. —————— LUKAS AND STEVENS: Hall of Fame Jockey Gary Stevens came out of retirement this year and rode 30-1 longshot Oxbow to a sixth-place finish. Stevens is a three-time Derby winner. The 50year -old jockey is four months into a comeback after being retired for seven years. “I’ve got a smile on my face I can’t wipe off. It was fun. It was fun, because he ran his race,” Stevens said. “He got a chance today, and he fired a big bullet, and that’s when it’s fun, when you get a good trip in this race and the horse is giving his all. And he did.” T rainer D. Wayne Lukas’ Will Take Charge had an eighth-place finish in the Derby. Lukas has won the Derby four

times. If Lukas had come out victorious, he would have become the oldest trainer to saddle a winner. —————— MYLUTE’S RUN: Jockey Rosie Napravnik was trying to become the first female jockey to win the Kentucky Derby, but ended up fifth aboard Mylute. However, Napravnik wasn’t disappointed. Instead, she saw a solid race by her horse. “He really did everything very well. We were right with Orb the entire way,” Napravnik said. “We followed him around into the final turn. I was really hoping to be third.” Napravnik said Mylute has a solid future. “He’s just a very talented horse. He’s going to improve off of this,” Napravnik said. —————— PLETCHER’S DAY: Despite being one of the biggest names in horse racing, Todd Pletcher has struggled at the Derby. Pletcher is 1 for 36 with mounts in the Run to the Roses, with Revolutionary coming in third for his best finish on Saturday. Even though he saddled up a record-tying five horses, the rest of Pletcher’s group finished between ninth and 13th place. Jockey Calvin Borel rode Revolutionary and came from nearly last in the field by riding along the rail to capture the third spot in the closing stretch. “I still thought I’d get through,” Borel said. —————— RAINY DAY: After a day of steady rain, the showers stopped just before the call to the post. The reprieve wasn’t enough to help the track at Churchill Downs. The course was graded as sloppy. Only eight of the 19 Derby runners had run on a dirt track rated worse than “fast.” The National Weather Service in Louisville reported 0.20 inches of rain as of race time.

fourth. Orb paid $12.80, $7.40 and $5.40. Golden Soul retur ned $38.60 and $19.40, while Revolutionary paid $5.40 to show. Mylute was fifth, followed by Oxbow, Lines of Battle, Will Take Charge and Char ming Kitten. Giant Finish was 10th, then came Overanalyze, Palace Malice, Java’s War, Verrazano, Itsmyluckyday, Frac Daddy, Goldencents, Vyjack and Falling Sky. The second leg of thoroughbred racing’s Triple Crown will be May 18 when the Preakness Stakes is held at Pimlico. The rain that pelted the track earlier in the day had stopped by the time 19 horses paraded to the post for the 139th Derby. While it created a gloppy surface, it didn’t seem to bother Orb, who had never previously run on a wet track. “I said, ‘A day like today might have cost me one Kentucky Derby, maybe it’ll turn around and help us today,” McGaughey said. His triumph was a victory for the old school of racing, where a private trainer like McGaughey works exclusively for wealthy owners — in this case Stuart Janney and Ogden Mills “Dinny” Phipps. “The Phippses and Janneys has been my whole life for 20 some years now, and have really kind of given me everything I’ve got,” said McGaughey, who never lost his thick Southern drawl despite years of

working in New York. “I’m extremely proud to be able to work with people such as this. To bring a day like today into their lives is just a huge, huge thrill for me. All I can do is just say thanks for the opportunity,” he said. First cousins Janney and 72-year -old Dinny Phipps, who are among the sport’s blue bloods that include the old-money Whitney and Vanderbilt families, also got their first gold Derby trophy.

“I just couldn’t be more delighted that we’re doing this together,” the 64-yearold Janney said. Phipps’ late father, Ogden, owned Easy Goer and undefeated Personal Ensign. Janney’s parents owned star filly Ruffian. “This horse’s bloodline goes back to our grandmother,” Janney said. “Dinny’s father was very instrumental in getting me to take over my parents’ horses 20 some years ago.” When the horses burst

from the gates, Palace Malice and Mike Smith set a sizzling pace that couldn’t be sustained. On the far tur n, the pack closed in on the leader, with Oxbow attacking from the inside and Normandy Invasion moving up on the outside to take the lead. Rosario positioned Orb in the clear on the outside and they reeled in Normandy Invasion in midstretch before surging clear.

Crowds brave security lines, rain for Derby

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Rain and extra security measures slowed down the crowds at Saturday’s Kentucky Derby, but thousands of poncho-covered racing fans filled Churchill Downs despite the odds. Fans were unfazed as Kentucky National Guardsmen searched bags and passed metal-detecting wands over racegoers in Louisville. The tightened security imposed in response to the Boston Marathon bombings was similar to actions taken after 9⁄11. “It’s expected. It’s all good,” said Curt Pederson of Seattle. In 2009, the track relaxed some policies, but most of the measures were reinstated this year, including a ban on coolers. Fans this year could purchase disposable coolers inside Churchill Downs, complete with ice. Among other things, the track banned backpacks, large purses and cameras with removable lenses. And despite a forecast for rain all day, umbrellas, as always, were not allowed. “For the real troopers, Derby fans, you got to stick it out. It ain’t nothing but another day,” said Lanny Westfall, 37, of Louisville, who said he’d been coming to Derby for “30-something years.” He had claimed a spot on the backside rail at 6 a.m. with his friend Joan Lynchard of Hot Springs, Ark. The two held a patch of grass with about 20 camping chairs and a four-burner gas grill ready for burgers, brats and pork loin. “I remember coming out here with a bucket of KFC and my sister bringing a blanket,” Westfall said. “That was when I was knee-high. This is my Dad’s Christmas pretty much, Derby day.” Churchill Downs said the final attendance Saturday was 151,616. Rather than worrying about security, fans were talking betting strategies, which vary as wildly as the colorful hats at the Run for the Roses. Some fans plan out their wagers days in advance, poring over statistics and previous races. Many others fly by the seat of their pants, choosing an interesting looking horse or colorful jockey silks. “I love cats,” said Shelly Dozier-McKee of Atlanta, who decided to bet on Charming Kitten. Rebecca Thorpe’s mother told her to always bet on a gray horse. “She says the gray horse always finishes in the top three,” said Thorpe, who traveled to Louisville from Huber Heights, Ohio.

A tapas-style take on a Mother’s Day brunch B6 Sunday, May 5, 2013

A tapas-style meal made up of a variety of small, appetizer-like bites is something we tend to associate with evenings and cocktails. But we thought the same idea of small plates would lend itself perfectly to a Mother’s Day brunch. So we came up with a variety of tapas ideas suitable for Mom’s big day. Use these ideas as a jumping off point. Accompany them with mini bagels with cream cheese and smoked salmon, and fresh berries served in shot glasses and topped with yogurt and honey.

Science helps craft the perfect mac and cheese

Imagine your favorite cheese: perhaps an aged, sharp cheddar, or maybe a blue Gorgonzola or a gentle Monterey Jack. Wouldn’t it be wonderful to use those really good cheeses you love on nachos or as a sauce on macaroni or steamed vegetables? But if you have ever tried melting high-quality cheeses, you’ve experienced the problem: the cheese separates into a greasy oil slick that no amount of stirring will restore. One traditional workaround is to make a Mornay sauce, which combines the cheese with a cooked mixture of flour, butter and milk. But a Mornay sauce can end up tasting as much of cooked flour as it does of cheese. The starch in the flour actually masks some of the flavors in the cheese, so the sauce loses its vibrancy. A clever Canadian-born cheesemaker in Chicago discovered a much better solution around 1912. His name may ring a bell — James L. Kraft. Kraft found that adding a small amount of sodium phosphate to the cheese as it melted kept it from turning into a clumpy mess of cheese solids swimming in a pool of oil. Kraft patented his invention and used it to make canned, shelf-stable cheese. He sold millions of pounds of the stuff to the American military during World War I. The technique ultimately led to the creation of Velveeta and a whole universe of processed cheese products. You can apply the very same chemistry, however, to achieve much higher culinary purposes. The chefs in our research kitchen have made mac and cheese with an intense goat gouda and cheddar sauce, for example, and build gourmet grilled cheese sandwiches using cheese slices that melt like the processed stuff, but are made from feta or Stilton. In place of sodium phosphate, we use sodium citrate, which is easier to find in grocery stores or online. Like sodium phosphate, sodium citrate is an emulsifying salt that helps tie together the two immiscible components of cheese: oil and water. In solid form, cheese is a stable emulsion. The tiny droplets of dairy fat are suspended in water and held in place by a net of interlinked proteins. When cheese melts, however, that net breaks apart, and the oil and water tend to go their separate ways. Sodium citrate can form attachments to both fat and water molecules, so it holds everything together. The end result is a perfectly smooth, homogeneous sauce. The sauce even can be cut into processed cheese-like slices once it cools. When making cheese sauce, we add 4 grams of sodium citrate for every 100 grams of finely grated cheese and 93 grams of water or milk. To make cheese slices, we reduce the amount of water to about 30 grams (cold wheat beer works very well, too), pour the melted mixture into a sheet pan, and let it solidify in the refrigerator for about two hours before cutting it into pieces, which then can be wrapped in plastic and frozen. Because this method of stabilizing melted cheese bypasses all of the flour, butter and milk used in Mornay sauce, the resulting cheese sauce is much richer; a little goes a long way. But the sauce keeps well in the refrigerator and reheats nicely in the microwave, so save any extra and use it to top vegetables, nachos or pasta.

Modernist mac and cheese

We’ve offered both weight and volume measurements for this recipe. But as with most modernist recipes, a digital scale is best. Sodium citrate is widely available online. Feel free to substitute an equal amount of your favorite cheeses in this recipe. If you have an immersion blender, you can use it to blend the cheese sauce instead of transferring it to a food processor. But this can cause splattering, so do so with care. Start to finish: 30 minutes Servings: 5 2 cups elbow macaroni 265 milliliters (1 1⁄8 cups) milk or water 11 grams (2 1⁄4 teaspoons) sodium citrate 285 grams (about 2 1⁄2 cups) finely grated white cheddar cheese Salt, to taste Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add the pasta and cook until al dente, 5 to 6 minutes. Drain the pasta, but do not rinse it. Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan over medium heat, whisk together the milk or water and sodium citrate. Bring to a simmer. Add the cheese, a spoonful at a time, stirring well between additions. Continue stirring until the cheese is melted and steaming, then transfer the sauce to a food processor. Process until completely smooth, about 30 seconds. Transfer the cheese sauce immediately back to the saucepan, and return to the heat. Once the sauce is hot, add the pasta, and stir until coated. Season with salt.

OBITUARIES

John DiPaolo

In loving memory of John Phillip DiPaolo, 75 What it really all adds up to is love — not love as it is described with such facility in popular magazines, but the kind of love that is affection and respect, order and encouragement, and support. Our awareness of this was an incalculable source of strength, and because real love is something unselfish and involves sacrifice and giving, we could not help but profit from it. -RFK John “Senior” was dearly loved, as our husband, as our father, as our brother and as our friend. We received inspiration, which he passed on to all that knew him. He has always given us strength in time of trouble, help and wisdom in time of uncertainty and sharing in time of happiness. Our husband, father, brother, and friend; John will always be by our side. John Phillip DiPaolo was born in Wood River, Ill., on

March 23, 1938, and passed after a brief illness while living in Keller, Texas, with his family present. John was always very active in the community. While living in Roswell, he was a Chamber of Commerce Red Coat and belonged to the Association of Realtors and Contractors. In addition to his community activities, John was an active member in the Catholic Church, a member of the Knights of Columbus, Assumption Parish of Roswell, Christ the King Church of Las Vegas and Good Shepherd of Colleyville, Texas. John was preceded in death by his parents, Nick and Rose DiPaolo and his brother Joseph. He is survived by his wife Shirley of 52 years, daughters, Elizabeth DiPaolo (Noel Knight) and Julie (Jay) Hickox; son John (Debbie) DiPaolo II; sister Virginia (Nor man) Hermreck; brother-in-law Allen (Carol) Henry; grandchildren, Steven and Nicholas Hickox, Brad Knight and Sarah Netzer; great-grandchildren, Shalya and Jeremy Knight, Lucy and Micah Netzer; many beloved nieces and nephews and numerous additional loving relatives.

Memorial services for William Fredrick Reeder, 96, are scheduled for 3 p.m, Sunday, May 5, 2013, at Beehive Homes, located at 2903 Washington Ave. He passed away Sunday, April 28, 2013. Bill was bor n April 3, 1917, to Charles F. Reeder and Zoe Ann Reeder in Fillmore, Calif.; one of five children. He graduated from high school in Fillmore, Calif., in 1935, and attended one year of college before he was drafted into the Ar my on March 17, 1941. He went through basic training and in 1942 he was able to go through the Of ficer Candidate School (OCS). He served in the 2nd Armor Division as well as the 13th Ar mor Division. He also served with the 101st Infantry

Division in Germany. When the war was over, he was retained there as a commissioner of public utilities in Ger many until his release in 1946. Bill has told stories where he knew he was watched over and protected because he should have died in a few of the war incidences. While attending the OCS in Fort Knox, Ky., he met and married Virginia. They were married for 22 years and had five boys, one (David Lee Reeder) was killed in Vietnam. He was married to his second wife, Khloree, for 47 years. Bill managed various retail lumber yards in Califor nia. He has lived in Santa Paula, Calif., Newhall, Calif., and Van Nuys, Calif. He retired at age 65 and for the next three years he and his wife traveled the United States pulling a fifth wheel. They were looking for the perfect place to retire and settled in Roswell, where they have lived since 1985. Bill and Khloree traveled each summer to various locations until he turned 88 in 2005. He enjoyed gardening and fishing and he made the best pecan pie ever! The last pie he made was in 2011. Khloree was blind for the last 10 years of her life so he helped take care of her until she died in June of 2010. Bill remained active and lived by himself until he moved into Beehive Homes in January 2012. Even while there he remained as active and independent as he could

and was still driving his own car until 2013. Bill never broke a bone or had to have a surgery although he had been to the hospital for pneumonia a few times. Bill lived a life of service, was very kind and considerate to others and he had a great sense of humor. He made lemonade when life gave him lemons. He blessed the lives of many people. He will be greatly missed! He is survived by Charles Fredrick Reeder in San Marcus, Texas, John H. Reeder of Grants Pass, Ore., William Wayne Reeder of Santa Paula, Calif., Samuel Edwards Reeder of Santa Paula, Calif., his stepson Jim Hodson in Roswell as well as daughter-in-laws, various grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

MORELIA, Mexico (AP) — The economic development secretary of the western Mexican state of Michoacan says two major firms have decided to relocate their distribution centers to escape violence. Ricardo Martinez says yogurt giant Dannon and pharmaceutical company

Grupo Casa Saba have moved to Queretaro and Jalisco states respectively. The PepsiCo subsidiary Sabritas was the target of fire bombings in Michoacan last year, apparently by a drug cartel. Martinez also said he is concerned insecurity is causing a brain drain in

Michoacan, long the scene of drug violence and now conflicts involving vigilantes and striking students. His announcement came as U.S. President Barack Obama met in Mexico with President Enrique Pena Nieto to emphasize economic growth over security issues.

In this photo taken Thursday, Philippe Lefebvre, 64, plays the organ at Notre Dame cathedral in Paris.

PARIS (AP) — From the moment the teenage musician caught sight of the organ in France’s most famous cathedral, he knew where he wanted to play. In the five decades since, Philippe Lefebvre has traveled the world to play what he describes as an “orchestra of one,” but the organ master returns to the loft above Notre Dame and is never disappointed. He has none of the infamy of Notre Dame’s bell-ringer and is invisible to the thousands of visitors Notre Dame receives each day. But Lefebvre said he never misses the direct contact with his audience that so many musicians crave. For the 64-year-old, it is enough to be the caretaker of what he considers an almost otherworldly instrument. He first saw it when he was 15, as a young piano student. “I thought that there were many more possibilities than with a piano. Even though I find the piano magnificent, this is just a whole new world,” he said. A few visitors may notice the biggest pipes above the entrance, but most turn their eyes no higher than the stained glass windows along the sides. Lefebvre, when he plays, is hidden even further — behind the brand new wooden-paneled console that he compares to a cockpit —

five cascading keyboards and more than 200 stops. A century ago, six strong men were needed to pump enough air for the music. Now, there is an air compressor behind the scenes, and the newly rebuilt instrument itself has a touch-screen panel that can note “favorite” stop combinations like a browser bookmarks a Web page. Despite the advances in organ technology, Lefebvre feels the weight of history in his job. There are deep gashes in the wood carvings of the organ loft — a legacy of revolutionaries from the late 18th century who slashed away the fleur-de-lis symbol of the monarchy. But, Lefebvre said, they refrained from melting down the metal pipes into bullets during the war after heeding pleas from Notre Dame’s organ master, Claude Balbastre, who had adapted to new political realities by composing variations on the Marseillaise anthem. Notre Dame briefly opened its organ loft on Thursday to show off the new instrument — refurbished for the cathedral’s 850th anniversary this year. Each of the nearly 8,000 pipes — some of which date back to the 18th century — was individually cleaned and returned to its place. The new electronic panel, the five cascading keyboards and more than 200 stops were installed.

Lefebvre began his musical career on piano, but he says “the piano is an industrial product. Each one is basically like the other. Every organ is unique, made for a particular place.” In cavernous Notre Dame, the organ’s location is unparalleled. When Lefebvre plays the opening of “Piece Heroique” a few tourists turn toward the sound. By the end of the grandiose piece, the wooden floor of the loft is vibrating, Notre Dame’s arched ceiling echoes with the sound and below, flashbulbs flare upwards. A pigeon that had been roosting on one of the horizontal pipes took flight for quieter territory. “Notre Dame’s organ is particular because it is one of the only organs that has retained the traces of centuries. As the cathedral itself. So at the same time you have tones from before the Revolution, some from the 19th century similar to a symphonic orchestra, and also all the recent inputs of the 20th century. You have three or four authentic centuries of music,” he said. “It resonates in the stones of the cathedral.” The big organ is played on weekends and for major ceremonies and holidays, the playing shared by three organists who have held the job since 1985.

WORLD II

Danish philosopher’s tough ideas adapted for kids COPENHAGEN, Denmark (AP) — Danish philosopher Soeren Kierkegaard’s work is so dense that he himself lamented: “People understand me so little that they do not even understand when I complain of being misunderstood.” So it’s something of a surprise that a Danish director has turned his most famous book into a musical for schoolchildren. As Denmark celebrates the philosopher’s 200th birthday on Sunday, Marie Moeller has found her version of ‘’Either/Or” — featuring strobe lights, rave music and

child-size puppets — being performed in schools across the country. Kierkegaard’s esoteric musings, considered the forerunner to existentialism, deeply influenced French thinker Jean-Paul Sartre. But while most Danes have heard of Kierkegaard, and are proud of his influence on Western thought, few ever bother to read him because he’s just so difficult. His 1843 work “Either/Or” — which muses on existence and aesthetic and ethical questions about love — runs into hundreds of pages

and is considered even by many academics to be convoluted and longwinded. Moeller, a 28-year-old stage director, cut through the arcane thicket of thought by focusing on a meeting between Kierkegaard and his lover. In a separate performance titled the “Kierkegaard Comedy Show,” 46-year-old actor Claus Damgaard uses the philosopher’s thoughts to discuss sex and modern romantic relationships with a mix of humor and lecturing. The show has toured Denmark and has been staged at a former chapel next to the cemetery

Roswell Daily Record

where Kierkegaard and his contemporary, fairy-tale writer Hans Christian Andersen, are buried. “I remember that when I started reading Kierkegaard, it was hell,” Damgaard said. He said it was sheer obstinacy that led him to create his first piece on Kierkegaard, a show where he played the philosopher, in 2003. Peter Tudvad, author of several books on the Danish thinker, approves of Damgaard’s comedy approach and acknowledges that Kierkegaard’s writings are “hard to grasp” for most people.

“Many have heard about Soeren Kierkegaard but very, very few people have actually read his works,” he said.

The bicentennial events begin Sunday with Denmark’s Queen Margrethe expected to attend a church service at Copenhagen’s Lutheran Cathedral, where Kierkegaard’s funeral was held in 1855. Festivities in Denmark run through Nov. 11, the day he died at age 42. The post office also has issued a special stamp commemorating the anniversary.

Often associated with steamed vegetables, going to bed early and cough syrup, “Because it’s good for you” is the answer a.m.that no child wants to hear — until now. 3 p .m . A ll wh o With the coming of the second annual Roswell Kids to the attend will be treated, Park Day, local children and youth will yearn to do what’s free of charge, to live music, good for them — from break-dancing to disc golf; from gam es, pr iz e s, a n o bst acl e enjoying free, healthy snacks to arts and crafts. course, face painting, folklorico The celebration will attract children and dancers, jazzercise, zumba, interactive youth age 3-18, families and educators to displays and a jolly jump. Free snacks will Cahoon Park on Saturday, May 18, include string cheese, water and fruit. fr om 1 0 Furthermore, mascots from several organizations will make special appearances, including Blue Bear from Blue Cross, Seymour Antelope from the Bureau of Land Management and Smokey Bear and Woodsy Owl from the U.S. Forest Service. Aside from live entertainment and a multitude of activities, the event pr omises no empty hands. Children will have no excuse not to gladly do what’s good for them. This will give parents a break from the equally dreaded “why?” question as their children, healthy (perhaps unknowingly,) activities. em b ar k o n “Every child will get a free activity item,” said Jane Batson, interim assistant vice president for External Affairs at Eastern New Mexico University- Roswell. “Either a (jumping) rope, Frisbees, or footbags.” Parents will also get a dose of healthful tips, including information about healthy snacks, how to stay active and complimentary blood sugar, cholesterol and body mass index health screenings “It’s designed to get people into parks … to encourage activity, healthy living (and) active lifestyles,” Batson said. “I think many times parents don’t think to go to the park.” Aside from the fresh air and exercise, there’s one other major advantage to making a day at the park a regular family activity. “It’s free,” Batson noted. “It t ake s v er y lit t le t im e t o spend some

time with your child. Just get out and have fun.” Last year’s event attracted about 1,000 people, Batson said. The goal this year is to attract even more to the event set to take place on the side of Cahoon Park east of Union Avenue. Batson noted that Blue Cross, Blue Shield is a major sponsor for the event. ENMU-R, the city of Roswell, the Department of Health and Healthy Kids Chaves County are also major contributors to the celebration. Kids to the Park is made possible locally through a four-year Community Transform at ion Gr an t , fu n d in g intended to address the obesity epidemic in New Mexico. Set t o r eceive $90,000 each year for four year s t h r o ug h t he g r an t , C h aves County is currently in its second year of receiving the funds. Chaves County was one of the New Mexico counties to implement programs as part of the grant, one being Roswell Kids to the Park Day. There are three “arms” to the types of programs being implemented, which are wellness, built environments and food systems. These have translated into safe biking trails, the introduction of salad bars in schools, an education program that introduces young students to tennis, and initiatives that encourage children to eat fruits and veggies; said. just to name a few local initiatives. The event is based on a K id s to th e P ar k falls national initiative called u n der w e lln ess, National Kids to Parks Day; a B a t s o n way for educators and members of the entire family to mark the beginning of summer. Described as a “nationwide day of outdoor play” on its website, National Kids to Parks Day will be observed on May 18 in 258 towns and cities in 44 states. “The intent of the Community Transformation Grant is to create sustainable change long after the grant is gone,” Batson said.

Family’s sense of humor must be respectful C2 Sunday, May 5, 2013

Q: Our family enjoys laughing together. Sometimes this includes poking fun at each other. Do you think there’s a problem with this kind of humor? Jim: Your family humor dynamics sound like those of the Daly household -- but they’re not necessarily for everyone. Everything depends on your distinctive family “culture.” Because you are interconnected in ways unlike any other group of people, you take certain things for granted and know things about one another that no one else can know. You have a common language. If it’s understood that teasing is part of that, then you probably can’t eliminate it without damaging your ability to connect. Tone and motives are also important factors to consider. Are the jokes and stories designed to hurt or embarrass someone? Or are they meant to express affection and appreciation? The real litmus test should be the reaction of the one who’s getting “roasted”

and whether or not they think it’s funny. It really boils down to two basic principles. First: Never sacrifice respect for humor. There are jokes that demean and jokes that can preserve the self-esteem of family members. Make sure everyone understands the difference. Second: Whatever happens, make sure that every person in your family feels that home is a safe place to be. If humor comes across as threatening, communication will cease. This can cause all kinds of negative fallout. In this case, Mom and Dad need to dig deeper and find out what else

is going on. There’s an old saying that “many a truth is spoken in jest.” But when teasing becomes a way of rubbing salt into open wounds, it’s time for people to put all joking aside and to air genuine grievances in open and honest dialogue. Q: I’m newly married and have been surprised and disturbed by the amount of conflict we’ve experienced in our relationship. This rarely happened when we were dating. Is something wrong? Dr. Greg Smalley, executive director of marriage and family formation: The first thing that’s important to understand is that conflict is inevitable and unavoidable in any relationship -- even those of marriage “experts.” Conflict isn’t always a bad thing. In fact, when handled with a respectful, nonabusive spirit, it can lead to a stronger, more satisfying marriage. If you want to resolve conflicts effectively, commit to confronting issues as soon as they arise. Simply suppressing

Roswell Daily Record

your differences is not an effective way of dealing with the problem. The longer a disagreement stews, the bigger it becomes. Once you’ve initiated a discussion, be sure to communicate your concerns clearly and specifically. Avoid generalizations, ambiguities and absolutes. Using words like “never” or “always” to describe your spouse’s undesired behavior are rarely accurate and usually produce a defensive response. Try saying something like, “It frustrates me when you don’t take the trash out on Mondays,” rather than, “You never do what you say you’re going to do.” Along these lines, remember that it’s important to use “I” rather than “you” statements. For example, “I feel hurt when you don’t follow through,” versus “You’re so irresponsible.” In other words, be careful to attack the problem, not the person. Stick with the issue at hand and resist the temptation to support your argument by generalizing or following rabbit trails.

Work hard to understand your partner’s point of view, and be sure to keep your discussion private. After you’ve expressed your viewpoints and reached an understanding, share your needs and decide where to go from there. Be willing to ask forgiveness, and always remember that maintaining the relationship is more important than winning the argument. Finding a solution that benefits both spouses lets everybody win.

Ferran Adria brings elBulli exhibition to London Kaitlin Maher and Adam Camp.

LONDON (AP) — You’ve eaten at the restaurant — or probably you haven’t. Now visit the exhibition. Spanish chef Ferran Adria, the man behind the late, lamented elBulli restaurant, is bringing an exhibition dedicated to the art and science of his distinctive brand of molecular gastronomy to London. Diners lucky enough to get reservations at elBulli before it closed two years ago feasted on 50-course tasting menus featuring frozen cocktails, ham tapioca, lobster and lamb’s brain salad and many other challenging creations. Visitors to “elBulli: Ferran Adria and the Art of Food” will see sketches, menus, film, photographs and even plasticine models of food, showing how those memorable menus were created. Just don’t expect to eat. “If you go to the Barcelona football team museum, you don’t play football,” Adria said unapologetically Thursday as he announced the London show. “If you go to an airplane museum, you don’t fly a plane.” The hunger-inducing nature of the exhibition didn’t prevent 650,000 people visiting it over the

course of a year at Barcelona’s Palau Robert. In London, it will be on display from July 5 to Sept. 29 at Somerset House, a palatial 18th-century edifice beside the River Thames that has been transformed over the last decade from dusty tax office to busy arts and cultural center. The exhibition is the latest stage in the expanding afterlife of elBulli, which closed its doors in July 2011 after a final meal that included “Clam Meringue,” ‘’Olive Spheres” and “Hot Cold Gin Fizz.” Adria, who started at elBulli in 1984 and became head chef three years later, used the restaurant to explore his fascination with the essence of food and the experience of eating. In the restaurant’s kitchen and a scientific lab in Barcelona, he and his team deconstructed ingredients to what he calls the molecular level, then reconstructed dishes using unexpected re-combinations of the original components, presenting the results in mouthful-sized portions. “For every 100 dishes we created, one was brilliant,” said Adria, a compact, energetic 50-year-old in gray jeans, black jacket and sneak-

ers, who proves incapable of remaining seated as he discusses his work with journalists. The restaurant, tucked in a cove on the rocky coast of northeast Spain, maintained a three-star Michelin rating for more than a decade and was ranked the world’s best place to eat five years running by Restaurant magazine. It also made Adria — part celebrity chef, part twinkling mad scientist — one of the food world’s most famous figures. He voiced a character in the Spanish version of Pixar’s animated film “Ratatouille,” and made an appearance in “The Simpsons.” Molecular gastronomy has inspired chefs from Britain’s Heston Blumenthal to Chicago’s Grant Achatz and Denmark’s Rene Redzepi. Some of its signature touches — foams, jellies, liquid nitrogen — have almost become culinary cliches. “People believe the legacy of elBulli is a type of cooking, but it’s not,” he said through a Spanish interpreter. “The important thing is the philosophy we are transmitting to all the people who worked with us.”

Theatre Guild member, volunteer gets national honor Roswell Daily Record

Albuquerque—The American Association of Community Theatre Spotlight Award will be presented to Albuquerque Theatre Guild member Claudia Mathes at the May 11 annual meeting of the Guild. AACT’s Spotlight Awards are presented for local service to community theatre. The Guild nominated Mathes for her more than 25 years of tireless work to promote local theatre. “Since the mid 80s, Claudia has worked with the Albuquerque Little Theatre, the Vortex Theatre, the Albuquerque Civic Light Opera Association, Opera Southwest, the National Hispanic Cultural Center, La Compania de Teatro de Alburquerque, and Theatre-in-the-Making. She has also served as vice president, treasurer and

chair of the Unity Committee of the Albuquerque Theatre Guild,” says Hugh Witemeyer, ATG president. “She has organized volunteers, coordinated props, stage-managed and served on boards of directors, all with little or no pay, and no wish for recognition. She’s truly an indispensable and treasured member of the Albuquerque theatre community most deserving of this award.”

The American Association of Community Theatre is a national organization that serves as the authority on the performing arts on the community level. They provide educational resources for community theatres throughout the U.S. as well as all of the USO facilities throughout the world. In 2004, AACT initiated a Spotlight Award

to honor community theatre members who have given outstanding service to their local theatre effort based on stringent criteria and nominated by their local theatre groups. About Albuquerque Theatre Guild The Albuquerque Theatre Guild is an award winning 501(c)(3), non-profit umbrella organization dedicated to making the Albuquerque area’s rich live-theatre scene better known to both residents and visitors alike.

Is there a drought-tolerant groundcover? Percussion Ensemble to pick up the beat Q. Would you have a recommendation on an evergreen groundcover that is drought tolerant? I think this may be something impossible, but I thought I would ask. Portales A. There are a some evergreen drought tolerant groundcover plants. Creeping (or prostrate) juniper is fairly drought tolerant and can be irrigated with drip irrigation (when done properly) to sustain it if supplemental irrigation is needed. The plant self-mulches, cooling and preventing drying under its stems and foliage. There are some that have bluish casts, some that turn more bronze or yellowish in the winter. By mixing these properly, it is possible to have some interesting color patterns in the landscape even in the winter. It will not do well in dense shade. I am aware of a front lawn in Roswell that was composed of sedum plants. These are succulent plants that need very little irrigation. The one in Roswell was mostly irrigated from roof runoff. Over time it had some problems. Many of the plants died perhaps because it was

overwatered or because disease organisms accumulated in the soil over time. It may need to be rejuvenated periodically to help avoid diseases. Sedum also needs full sunlight. Both of the plants mentioned above may have some weed problems, but grass-specific herbicides may help, or a wick (carefully brushed on) herbicide to the foliage of weeds while avoiding contact or splatter onto the groundcover plants may work. Of course there is the broadleaf evergreen vinca that is often used as a groundcover. It will use more water than the juniper and sedum, but drip irrigation may be used (when emitters are properly placed) to provide a fairly water efficient landscape. The vinca plants will tolerate more shade than either sedum

or juniper, so it will be more useful in a shadier location, but not in dense shade.

George W. Bush library opens to the public DALLAS (AP) — The George W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum opened to the public Wednesday, with the 43rd president greeting 43 area schoolchildren who were its first visitors. “It was amazing seeing one of our nation’s leaders,” said Eduardo Borrego, a 6th-grader at Mark Twain Elementary in Richardson. “I was like, ‘I can’t believe he’s here.”’ The library and museum, along with Bush’s policy institute, are housed in the George W. Bush Presidential Center on the campus of Southern Methodist University in Dallas. The center was dedicated last week during a ceremony that featured Bush, President Barack Obama, and former Presidents Bill Clinton, Jimmy Carter and George H.W. Bush, who is Bush’s father.

Call Out is a single elimination street car race. Racers in each class will have tickets drawn to “call out” other racers in their class. Racers cannot turn down a race when challenged. The winner of the race will be the first car across the finish line without breaking out of the ET limits of their class, not necessarily the car with the faster time. The 2013 All Out Call Out is unique because it combines the fun and excitement of a heads up street race, with the timing equipment, organization and safety of a race track. Thanks to numerous sponsors, the winner of each class will receive more than $1,000 in cash.

“This event is a great venue to introduce wouldbe racers to competitive drag racing; it's also an event for the most seasoned drag racers,” said Mike Taddoni, one of the event organizers. “Most of all, the All Out Call Out promotes keeping drag racing where it belongs, the race track, not the streets,” he added.

AMSTERDAM (AP) — The Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam has reopened after a seven-month renovation, kicking off with “Van Gogh At Work,” an exhibition that shows the famously tortured artist’s working methods right down to his paints, brushes and other tools. Appropriately, the final painting curators hung Wednesday was a self-portrait in which Vincent Van Gogh painted himself behind a canvas, brushes and palette in hand. Nearby, on loan from the Musee d’Orsay in Paris, are an actual palette and paints that Van Gogh used. Marije Vellekoop, head of collections, said they were preserved by Dr. Paul-Ferdinand Gachet, the physician who treated the artist in the final months before his 1890 suicide. Although Van Gogh received little acclaim during in his life and sold few paintings, Gachet decided to hold on to some of his patient’s tools. “Van Gogh’s star was starting to rise, and there had been an exhibition of his work,” Vellekoop said. “Dr. Gachet saw his quality, or perhaps he had some vision of the future.” In all, 145 paintings and sketches are on display, almost double the museum’s usual collection. A highlight is the display of two versions of Van Gogh’s famed yellow “Sunflowers,” hung on either side of a greendominated portrait he painted known as “La Berceuse.” In a surviving letter, Van Gogh indicated that he intended the paintings, which usually hang in three different museums, to be displayed that way. The museum displays a replica of part of the letter, which shows sketches of the three paintings in miniature. Other displays show how Van Gogh, rather than being a self-taught genius as is sometimes thought, was a late starter who worked extremely hard to master his craft in the decade before his death at age 37. In many of his best-known works, he employed tools to help him render perspective correctly, with varying results. Some displays show the progression from a sketched idea in Van Gogh’s notebook to larger study to completed painting — such as the 1888 “Fishing Boats on the Beach of Les Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer.” Among the more surprising elements on display are copies that Van Gogh made of originals by other artists in order to practice different styles and techniques. One such piece is a large color replica of a Japanese print. It closely resembles the original on which it is based, but with Van Gogh’s trademark thick brush strokes. The reopening of the museum is something of a milestone for Amsterdam’s cultural scene: with it, all three of the city’s biggest art museums are open for the first time in years. The museum, which receives a million visitors a year and is known for long lines, has also instituted a new Internet reservation system that aims to smooth the flow of traffic over the day.

DEAR LET DOWN: Your wife should make no decisions about future celebrations while she’s angry.

On those occasions when it’s not possible to attend extended family gatherings, celebrating with immediate family seems like a sensible solution. Or consider hosting the celebration yourselves so you can set the party time. Your wife may have self-esteem issues that need to be addressed if she’s taking this personally. As a nurse caring for the most fragile of infants, she’s doing important work that should be respected. Please tell her to remind herself of that fact any time she feels “unimportant” because her efforts make the

Another man has been willing to step up and be a daddy for my child. Should I even bother to let Ryan know? Should I give him a chance to rise to the occasion or keep things the way they are?

Krumland attends Dealer Executive Conference Roswell Daily Record

Thomas W. Krumland of Carlsbad Ford/Lincoln in Carlsbad recently participated in an intensive, fourday seminar for dealers in Dearbor n, Mich., sponsored by Ford Motor Company. The seminar discussed ways to meet or exceed customer expectations and to help those customers be more completely satisfied every time they visit the dealership to shop, to buy or lease a new or used vehicle, or to get their existing vehicle serviced. Ford executives were involved with dealers throughout the seminar and a variety of programs that Ford provides to support dealership actions were highlighted. As part of the seminar, dealers had a tour of an assembly plant to see for themselves how quality is built into every new Ford vehicle, that process assisted by Ford management and UAW workers sharing common goals and encouraging teamwork. “Attending this seminar gave me a great feeling about being part of the

Ford Motor Company family,” said Krumland. “It helped me better understand how closely the company and the dealers are connected in doing a good job for the people who drive the products we sell and service.” Krumland is dealer principal of the Carlsbad Ford/Lincoln dealership. He has operated the business since February 2012. The first month of operation for the Krumland Auto Group began in August 1997. At that time it was not a group, rather one half-scared man with a wife, two kids at home and one in college. They uprooted from Colorado in search of a richer life in the auto business. He expanded with a second store in May 1998 when he was approached to purchase the Honda store in Roswell, a deal that was closed over lunch with the previous owner giving him the keys that day and remarking that his first day would be next Tuesday the first day of May. With the two stores in Roswell under his belt, he

decided to take vehicles down to Carlsbad, for an event sale. After that successful weekend, it was decided to open for business in Carlsbad in October 2000. Since then, the Krumland Auto Group acquired the Hyundai franchise, moved Toyota into a state-of-the-art new building, built a new store for the Honda line and for Nissan, as well as taking over the Chevrolet franchise in Carlsbad. All-time sales records have been set in all of the stores, from eight employees in August 1997 to 250 plus employees currently; rose from $1.5 million in sales to more than $200 million in sales. Going forward, Krumland has set his sights on more acquisitions, more opportunities for employees, and more customers to serve. “We are looking forward to many more growing years and breaking even more records. Along with these goals we need more employees who want an opportunity to see the American dream come true,” he said.

Fishermen want humpback whales off endangered list HONOLULU (AP) — A group of Hawaii fishermen is asking the federal government to remove northern Pacific humpback whales from the endangered species list, saying the population has steadily grown since the international community banned commercial whaling nearly 50 years ago. Hawaii Fishermen’s Alliance for Conservation and Tradition Inc., a coalition of fishing clubs and groups from across the islands, filed a petition to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration last month. There are more than 21,000 humpback whales in the North Pacific today, compared with about 1,400 in the mid-1960s. More than half spend the winter breeding and calving in Hawaii’s warm waters. The animals, known for acrobatic leaps and complex singing patterns, have become a major draw for tourists and support a thriving whale-watching industry in Hawaii. Other North Pacific humpbacks winter off Mexico, Central America, Japan and the Philippines. In the summer, they migrate to feed on krill and fish in waters off Alaska, Canada and Russia. The fishermen say they don’t want whaling to resume and aren’t asking to be allowed to hunt the whales. They’re also not trying to make it easier for them to catch fish, as they say the law’s protections for the whales don’t interfere with fishing. Instead, the fishermen are acting after watching environmental

since the animals were classified as endangered in 1970.

The law gives the agency until mid-July to determine whether the petition merits consideration. If NOAA finds the petition has merit, the agency must come to a conclusion by mid-April.

NOAA last removed a species from the endangered list in 2008, when it determined the Caribbean monk seal had gone extinct. The last time a species’ recovery prompted delisting was in 1994, when the agency removed the eastern North Pacific population of gray whales from the list.

conservation groups petition to add many more species to the endangered list in recent years, like dozens of corals, seven different damselfish and a rare dolphin called a false killer whale, said Philip Fernandez, the coalition’s president. The government should consider humpback whales for removal to maintain a balance, Fernandez said. “You cannot add species after species after species without evaluating whether there are species that should come off,” the West Hawaii fisherman told The Associated Press by telephone from Kailua-Kona on Hawaii’s Big

Island. Fishermen are concerned the Endangered Species Act is being used as a tool to manage the oceans and this will ultimately affect how fishermen are allowed to fish, Fernandez said. “The key thing is the ESA has turned into somewhat of a battleground,” he said. The commercial whaling ban and other regulations would continue to protect the whales even if they were to lose their endangered status, the petition said. Though some whales die each year after being hit by ships and getting accidentally caught in fishing

gear, the petition argues these accidents haven’t interfered with the overall population’s growth. The fishermen are asking NOAA to first declare the North Pacific whales a distinct population. If the agency does so, the coalition wants NOAA to then remove this population from the endangered list. Humpbacks are found around the world — globally they number about 60,000 — but the petition is seeking delisting for whales only in the North Pacific. Angela Somma, NOAA Fisheries endangered species division chief, said the petition is the first seeking to delist humpback whales

financial crisis when stocks were last near this level. The question: Are stocks already too high relative to those earnings? To answer that, experts look at what’s called price-ear nings ratios, or P/Es. Low P/Es signal that stocks are cheap relative to a company’s earnings; high ones signal they are expensive. P/Es are calculated by dividing the price per share by annual ear nings per share. So $100 stock of a company that earns $10 per share trades at 10 times. The lower the P/E, the cheaper the stock. Some P/Es now are near longterm averages, suggesting stocks are neither cheap nor expensive, just reasonable. If you look at earnings from the past year, the S&P 500 is trading at 17.7. That is about the same as the 17.2 average for this P/E since World War II, according to S&P Capital IQ. Using forecast earnings for the next 12 months, you get a P/E of 14.2, the same as the average over ten years, according to FactSet, a provider of financial data. Another measure shows stocks are somewhat expensive, however. Some investors think you should look at annual earnings averaged over 10 years instead of just one year. This eliminates any surge or fall due to changes in

the business cycle. Dividing stock prices by a 10-year average of earnings yields a P/E of 23 times. That is higher, or more expensive, than the average 18.3 since WWII. A word of warning: You shouldn’t invest just by looking at P/Es. They are more guide than gospel. There have been long periods when stocks traded at lower or higher P/Es than the averages. — ECONOMIC EXPANSION: With Friday’s job report, the odds for continued expansion got better. The economy has created an average of 208,000 jobs a month from November through April, above the 138,000 added in the previous six months. The report follows news that the pace of economic growth picked up in the first three months of this year, home prices rose at the fastest pace in nearly seven years and automakers had their highest sales for April since the recession. Tally it up, and financial analysts see earnings for the S&P 500 rising 12 percent in the last three months of the year, a big jump from an estimated 4.8 percent gain in the first three months. There’s plenty of reason for caution, of course. For starters, analysts tend to overestimate earnings several quarters in the future, and may be doing that again. Early last

year, they expected a 13-percent jump in earnings in the last three months of the year. They got four percent instead. And some experts believe Wall Street is underestimating how much the sweeping federal spending cuts that kicked in March 1 are going to slow the economy as government workers are furloughed and contractors lose business. If they’re right, that could erode earnings. Investors also have to keep on eye overseas. Half of revenues at big U.S. companies are abroad and some key economies are slowing or contracting. This can hit stocks hard, as the example from General Electric shows. Last month, when GE reported a 17 percent fall in revenue from Europe, its stock dropped four percent in a day. Many European countries are mired in recession, and the outlook has only gotten worse. Unemployment in the eurozone just rose to an all-time high of 12.1 percent. China has put investors on edge, too. On April 15, news that it grew more slowly than expected in the first three month of this year helped push the Dow down 266 points, the biggest drop for the year. Nervous yet? One thing to keep in mind in that big, sustained drops in stocks — ones that end bull markets — are most often caused by

NOAA also is considering delisting both the Hawaii population of green sea turtles and a population of Stellar sea lions that lives off the coast of California, Oregon, Washington and Alaska.

Miyoko Sakashita, a San Francisco-based attorney for the Center for Biological Diversity, said ship strikes and fishing gear entanglements still threaten humpbacks. Climate change and growing levels of carbon dioxide the ocean — which is causing the oceans to become more acidic — could harm the plankton that humpback whales depend on for food, she said. “It could be an important success story for humpback whales, but NOAA should really proceed with caution because of the overarching threats to make sure the gains aren’t unraveled,” Sakashita said,

As the Dow breaks 15,000, could it be too late to buy stocks?

NEW YORK (AP) — Are stocks worth buying now? With the Dow Jones industrial average breaking through 15,000, it’s natural to worry that stocks have gone up too far. But higher priced stocks aren’t necessarily overpriced. They may still be a good deal if corporate earnings are rising fast, and you think that trend is likely to continue. A solid April jobs report on Friday is a sign the economy is strengthening. That could lead to higher profits. What’s more, many of the traditional threats to bull markets — rising inflation and interest rates, a possible recession — don’t seem likely soon. That said, stocks are no bargain. Buy them only if you’re willing to ride the inevitable ups and downs and hold on for a while. A look at some forces that could push stock higher in the coming months: — HIGHER EARNINGS: Stocks investors cheered when employers added 165,000 jobs in April and unemployment fell to a fouryear low. More people working means more money flowing into the economy. That could help companies extend a remarkable streak of ever-higher profits. Companies in the Standard and Poor’s 500 index posted a record $102.83 ear nings per share last year, or 17 percent higher than in 2007, before the

U.S. recessions, and that doesn’t appear likely soon.

Four of the past five bull markets ended as investors dumped stocks before the start of a recession. They sold stocks two months before the start of the Great Recession in December 2007 and a year before the March 2001 recession. The U.S. economy has grown between 1-2.5 percent in the past three years. That’s pitiful compared with the long-term average of 3 percent. Still, it’s growth.

— LOW INTEREST RATES: If recessions cause stocks to plummet, what causes recessions? In most cases it’s the Federal Reserve raising short-term interest rates because it fears high inflation from an overheated economy. Fed hikes were the trigger for three of the past four recessions.

But today, the greater fear is too little inflation, not too much. The Fed’s preferred measure of inflation rose only 1 percent in the year through March. The Fed’s target is 2 percent.

What’s more, the Fed has said it would keep key short-ter m rates nearly zero until unemployment falls to at least 6.5 percent. It is 7.5 percent now.

Little Big Town, Fleetwood Mac at Jazz Fest NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Little Big Town says that some networking they did is paying off with a chance to cross a couple of items off their “bucket list.” After playing Bayou Country SuperFest in Baton Rouge last year, group member Karen Fairchild said they talked to festival producer Quint Davis about other things they hoped to accomplish. They mentioned that they’d one day like to perform at the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival. Davis was in a position to help since he also produces Jazz Fest. Known for its trademark four-part harmonies, Little Big Town per for med in New Orleans on Saturday. “Can you believe we’re opening for Fleetwood Mac?” said Kimberly Schlapman, another group member. “We’ve been wanting to play Jazz Fest forever and now we’re opening for Fleetwood Mac and can mark off two big things from our list.” Schlapman said early in their career they had the chance to meet Lindsey Buckingham of Fleetwood Mac, which she described

as an “amazing harmony band.” “Being able to share a stage with them is one of our greatest wishes,” she said. Fairchild said they’ve watched Jazz Fest from afar for years. “The who’s who of music shows up year after year at the festival. Who wouldn’t want to play there?” Flags flying amid a cool breeze, music fans packed the festival grounds by the stage where Little Big Town and Fleetwood Mac per for med. Some put down tarps over the muddy infield. Others sat in chairs, wore rubber boots or stood barefoot to hear the bands. “Once you’re in it, it kind of feels good,” said Mary Kathryn Gatlin, of Greenville, S.C., who danced shoeless in the mud, the muck covering her feet past the ankles. Gatlin was taking in her first Jazz Fest with her sister, Frances Gatlin. The pair had been at the stage since noon, about an hour after the gates opened. “We love country, bluegrass, just easy-listening

music that’s fun to dance to,” Gatlin said. Many danced as Fleetwood Mac performed such hits as “Dreams,” “Rhiannon,” “Gypsy,” “Tusk” and “Landslide,” which drew huge roars from the crowd when Stevie Nicks introduced it. Nicks also delivered her tribute to the host city, singing a portion of her song, “New Orleans,” which she said she wrote after Hurricane Katrina in 2005. “I wanna get a room in New Orleans, I wanna sing in the streets of the French Quarter,” she sang. The band also performed a new song, “Sad Angel,” testing it out with the crowd. Toward the end of their set, they played an old favorite, “Go Your Own Way” at the end of which Buckingham shouted to the crowd, “New Orleans, we love you!” They left the stage briefly before returning for an encore performance of “The World Keep On Turning,” a song from their self-titled first album released in 1968 and “Don’t Stop.” Other Saturday headlin-

ers included Phoenix, Frank Ocean, Los Lobos, Terence Blanchard, Davell Crawford and the Preservation Hall Jazz Band. Sunshine and blue skies were welcomed by fans of the outdoor festival, which had been drenched by rain in previous days. Despite the mud, the field in front of the festival’s largest stage was packed hours before Fleetwood Mac’s performance. Little Big Town’s Fairchild said she hoped their festival appearance would help boost their fan base. “This is a great chance for longtime fans to come out and see our set and a chance for us to discover and be introduced to new fans,” she said. Phillip Sweet and Jimi Westbrook make up the rest of Little Big Town, which recently won two Academy of Country Music awards for their latest album “Tornado.” They go on tour with Keith Urban in July. “I like them,” said Monique Powell, of Lafayette. “They’ve got three big hits out right now, ‘Tornado,’ ‘Pontoon,’

and ‘Little White Church.’ We came in to hear Maroon 5 yesterday. This is just a bonus.” Powell and her friend, Matt Chaisson, also of Lafayette, said Saturday’s sunny weather made the trip worthwhile. “Even though it’s nasty out here with all the mud, we’re making the best of it,” she said, adding that she should have packed

her rain boots. “I should know better,” she said, laughing. “I’m from here!” The festival ends Sunday, with closing performances by Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue, Aaron Neville, Maze featuring Frankie Beverly, and Irvin Mayfield and the New Orleans Jazz Orchestra with special guest Dee Dee Bridgewater.

Gerbils strut their stuff Rolling Stones launch at New England pageant tour with energetic set

BEDFORD, Mass. (AP) — The American Gerbil Society’s annual pageant brought dozens of rodents scurrying to New England this weekend for a chance to win “top gerbil.” The Bedford competition called for agility demonstrations in which the gerbils must overcome obstacles and race to the end of a course. Breeders of the small animals vie for coveted ribbons based on body type and agility. “ A m al e g er b i l s h o u l d b e a g o od , strong, hefty-looking gerbil,” said Libby Hanna, president of the American Gerbil Society. “If you are going to think of it in human terms, you might think of a football player — somebody who’s big, thick neck, nice, strong-looking male gerbil.” An ideal female gerbil will have a more st r e am l i ned a p pea r an c e th a t e ve n humans covet, she said. “So she would be strong and athleticlooking — not really scrawny, but slim,” said Hanna, who serves as a judge in the show. “I usually use a figure skater as my mental image or gymnasts — so obviously a gymnast is not necessarily a big, big woman, but she’s gonna be strong, muscular and athletic.” The Friday-Saturday show drew gerbil enthusiasts and breeders from around the country and culminates in the presentation of champion and breeder certificates. Fourteen-year -old Sarah Kaden from Bordentown, N.J., thinks gerbils have great personalities. “Even though they are so little, they are very different from each other and they smell a lot less than my brother’s hamsters,” she said Friday. That sentiment is not surprising since the small, furry and inquisitive creatures look cute when they nibble on their food,

stand on their hind feet or scurry around their environment. Gerbils are per fect pets for modern families as they don’t require to be taken out for a walk, could easily fit in a small apartment and their tanks only need to be cleaned about once a week. Still, some people freak out when they visit friends and see gerbils in the home. “I’ve had a couple of people come to my house that actually didn’t know that I had gerbils. They were sort of freaked out, but I just told them that it was OK, they stay in their tanks, there was nothing to worry about,” said Diane Nott who traveled from Elyria, Ohio, to compete in the show. Gerbils thrive in desert habitats and their gr owing popularity as pets led authorities in California and Hawaii to make it illegal to keep them since the weather there would make it possible for escaping animals to flourish in wild colonies that would damage crops and native plants. At the New England show, each animal undergoes a health check. Inspectors look at the whiskers, teeth and mouths and check to ensure the rodents have no runny noses, bugs, loss of fur on their tails or other signs of health problems. D o n n a A n ast asi o f Wal th am g o t hooked on gerbils after buying them for her daughters when they were younger. “Anyone can buy a $12 gerbil and get into the sport of gerbil showing or gerbil agility,” said Anastasi, who is also vice president of the American Gerbil Society. “It’s very fun ... easy and affordable and something you can do with your kids.”

LOS ANGELES (AP) — The Rolling Stones must have passed through a time machine before taking the Staples Center stage to kick off their “50 and Counting” anniversary tour. Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Ronnie Wood and Charlie Watts delivered a rousing set Friday night with the kind of youthful energy and musical verve they displayed decades ago. Their faces showed their age, but their performance did not, with a nonstop, more than twohour set packed with well-worn hits. Jagger and Richards are each 69 years old, and Watts is 71, but they transformed into their younger selves for the night. (Wood is the baby of the band at 65.) Jagger might not hit all the notes he once did, but he still busted out his almost spastic, serpentine dance moves on song after song. He’s impossibly thin, and his spine showed through the light shirt he wore. Staples Center was packed to capacity for the concert, the first of 17 dates the Stones are set to play throughout the United States. The stage was modeled after the band’s iconic logo, with lips and teeth above the stage and a tongue-shaped platform that extended into the crowd. A video of famous folks sharing their favorite Rolling Stones memories played before the band took the stage, with Johnny Depp, Martin Scorsese, Perry Farrell and others reminiscing about their favorite tunes. Actress Cate Blanchett recalled “just how skinny they were.” “It really, really pisses me off,” she said.

(Honestly, the Stones could produce a best-selling diet book — the members are as slim as they were as aspiring rockers in the 1960s.) Other videos showed the aging rockers as young men. Jack Nicholson was among the stars in the audience, and fans welcomed him with a round of applause as he took his seat. “It was either us or the Lakers, so now you got us,” Jagger said early in the show, referring to the basketball playoffs that forced the band to postpone its opening concert from Thursday to Friday. “It doesn’t matter to Jack Nicholson,” Jagger continued, “because he was coming to both of them.” Nicholson wasn’t the only star in the house. Gwen Stefani, wearing long blond hair and a bedazzled Rolling Stones tank top, joined the group onstage to sing “Wild Horses.” “I’ve got to get one of these T-shirts,” Jagger said, admiring her top. Keith Urban played guitar and sang backup on “Respectable.” For mer Stones member Mick Taylor added guitar to “Midnight Rambler.” Richards sang a pair of tunes: “Happy” and “Before They Make Me Run.” Jagger also played guitar and harmonica, and came out in a floor-length marabou cape to perform “Sympathy for the Devil.” “We first played in LA in 1965,” Jagger said. “Thank you for keeping on coming to see us.” The Rolling Stones’ tour continues through June 21.

Vieques ponders future 10 years after Navy left

SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP) — Thousands of activists on Wednesday celebrated the anniversary of the U.S. Navy’s departure from the Puerto Rican island of Vieques 10 years ago, despite concerns that progress has been slow in cleaning up and developing a place many hoped would flourish. With the military’s departure, the decades-long practice bombing of Vieques stopped, and the island has become one of the more exclusive tourist destinations in the Caribbean. But the cleanup of the bombing range on an island the Navy once called its “crown jewel” of live-fire training is expected to take another decade, and the mayor of Vieques noted the island of roughly 10,000 people still has no hospital to treat illnesses ranging from cancer to asthma that local residents blame on military activity. Mayor Victor Emeric said Vieques is battling an unemployment rate of nearly 20 percent and depends on a crippled ferry system that serves as the primary link to the main island of Puerto Rico. “Time passed and everyone forgot about us,” said Emeric, who was born and raised in Vieques. “None of the development that we expected has occurred.” George Withers, a senior fellow with the non-governmental Washington Office on Latin America, recently published a report calling on the U.S. to respond more aggressively to the cleanup and other problems in Vieques. He said the lack of care for ongoing health problems remain big concerns. “The overall impact on the quality of life for the people of Vieques has not really improved in the 10 years since the Navy left,” he said. “They created a toxic legacy on their island.” The island was once a cause celebre, with people such as singer Ricky Martin, actor Edward James Olmos and politician Jesse Jackson joining hun-

dreds of other protesters to demand that the Navy leave Vieques after an errant 500pound bomb killed a security guard in April 1999. But after the Navy left on May 1, 2003, interest in helping boost the island’s economy waned, said Emeric, blaming both the U.S. and local government. Even the domain of the island’s of ficial gover nment website, which translates to “Vieques Revival,” is up for sale. Emeric said many local residents are still trying to find their economic footing as they seek to develop land formerly under naval control. He dismissed criticism that American investors are the only ones reaping economic benefits, saying, “Many North Americans are here because the Viequenses themselves sold them the land.” Of the 23,000 acres (9,300 hectares) that the Navy began to use for target practice in the early 1940s, 4,000 acres (1,619 hectares) have been awarded to Vieques municipality, 3,100 acres (1,255 hectares) went to the U.S. Department of the Interior and about 800 acres (324 hectares) to the Puerto Rico Conservation Trust. The Navy has so far cleaned 2,540 acres (1,028 hectares), with the operation expected to run through at least 2025 in one of the Navy’s most extensive rehabilitation efforts, budgeted at some $350 million. “The Navy considers Vieques to be its highest priority in the munitions cleanup program,” said Dan Waddill, who is managing the process. “Vieques gets by far the most effort and the highest amount of funding.” Waddill oversees 55 employees who work Monday through Friday cleaning 15,000 acres (6,070 hectares) of the former bombing range, mostly in the island’s east. He noted that two-thirds of the workers are from Vieques. He suggested it will be impossible to find all of the abandoned munition parts. “We don’t expect to leave any-

Bunkers that were used for ammunition storage in a former Naval Ammunition Facility now sit abandoned, in Puerto Rico, Friday. Many celebrated on Wednesday the May 1st anniversary of the U.S. Navy's departure from the Puerto Rican island of Vieques 10 years ago, despite concerns that progress has been slow in cleaning up and developing a place many hoped would flourish.

thing behind that people might come into contact with, but there are layers of safety that prevent that kind of contact just in case something happens to be missed,” said Waddill. “When you’re covering a large area ... that’s just life. Sometimes you don’t find everything.” In late March, the U.S. Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry issued a long-awaited report stating it found no proof that residents had been sickened by substances left behind by bombs and other munitions, identified by the Environmental Protection Agency as TNT, napalm, depleted uranium, mercury and lead. The report was rejected by thousands of Vieques residents, many of whom filed a lawsuit, later dismissed, that accused the U.S. government of causing illnesses by leaving harmful residues on the land. Withers noted in his report that

Mysterious Hebrew stone displayed in Jerusalem

A museum worker walks next to the 'Gabriel Stone' as it is displayed at an exhibition at the Israel Museum in Jerusalem on April 30. An ancient stone with mysterious Hebrew writing and featuring the archangel Gabriel is being displayed in Israel, even as scholars continue to argue about what the inscription means.

JERUSALEM (AP) — An ancient limestone tablet covered with a mysterious Hebrew text that features the archangel Gabriel is at the center of a new exhibit in Jerusalem. The so-called Gabriel Stone, a three-foottall tablet said to have been found 13 years ago on the banks of the Dead Sea, features 87 lines of an unknown prophetic text dated as early as the first century BC, at the time of the Second Jewish Temple. Scholars see it as a portal into the religious ideas circulating in the Holy Land in the era when Jesus was born. Its form is also unique — it is ink written on stone, not carved — and no other such religious text has been found in the region. “The Gabriel Stone is in a way a Dead Sea Scroll written on stone,” said James Snyder, director of the Israel Museum. The writing dates to the same period, and uses the same tidy calligraphic Hebrew script, as some of the Dead Sea Scrolls, a collection of documents that include the earliest known surviving manuscripts of Hebrew Bible texts. The Gabriel Stone made a splash in 2008 when Israeli Bible scholar Israel Knohl offered a daring theory that the stone’s faded writing would revolutionize the understanding of early Christianity, claiming it included a concept of messianic resurrection that predated Jesus. He based his theory on one

hazy line, translating it as “in three days you shall live.” His interpretation caused a storm in the world of Bible studies, with scholars convening to debate readings of the text, and a National Geographic documentary crew featuring his theory. An American team of experts using high resolution scanning technologies tried — but failed — to detect more of the faded writing. Knohl, a professor of Bible at Hebrew University in Jerusalem, eventually scaled back from his original bombshell theory but the fierce scholarly debate he sparked continued to reverberate across the academic world. Museum curators say only 40 percent of the 87 lines are legible, many of those only barely. All agree that the passage describes an apocalyptic vision of an attack on Jerusalem in which God appears with angels on chariots to save the city. The central angelic character is Gabriel, the first angel to appear in the Hebrew Bible. “I am Gabriel,” the writing declares. The stone inscription is one of the oldest passages featuring the archangel, and represents an “explosion of angels in Second Temple Judaism,” at a time of great spiritual angst for Jews in Jerusalem looking for divine connection, said Adolfo Roitman, a curator of the exhibit.

the Navy fired more than 300,000 munitions in Vieques from the mid-1940s to 2003, taking control of 77 percent of the land. So far, the Navy has removed 17 million pounds of scrap metal and destroyed more than 38,000 munition items on land, according to Navy spokesman Jim Brantley. The next step is to clear munitions underwater. Navy officials are mapping the area to determine where munitions are located, a process that will take up to 18 months, Waddill said. “We expected that to take longer than the land cleanup,” he said, adding that officials have to protect endangered coral species. “It takes time to do this kind of work safely.” Puerto Rico’s Secretary of Government Ingrid Vila said the U.S. territory will push to ensure the remaining land be cleaned and returned to Vieques municipality.

Vila said officials also want to revive a 2003-2004 plan aimed at boosting the island’s economy, including reopening a Vieques government office charged with economic development. Tourism remains the island’s main economic engine, with hotel occupancy growing from 41 percent to 56 percent in the past two fiscal years, according to Puerto Rico’s tourism company. The number has dropped slightly so far this fiscal year. Vila noted that a middle school is to open in Vieques in coming weeks, and that Puerto Rico’s health secretary is meeting with officials in Vieques to discuss community needs. “Vieques has to be a priority,” Vila said as she met with community leaders celebrating the Navy’s departure. “It cannot become relevant only when there’s an anniversary.”

Six things to ask before booking a summer vacation NEW YORK (AP) — It’s May. Memorial Day and the end of the school year are in sight. Suddenly, you’re thinking about a summer vacation. A little advance planning — and some insider tips — can save you a lot of money. Whether you’re booking airfare, a car rental or a hotel room, there are questions you should ask first. AIR TRAVEL Q: When is the best time to buy airfare? A: There is no overarching rule, but generally the sweet spot for buying is four to six weeks before you travel. Prices are highest eight to 10 weeks and two to three weeks in advance. However, start your search earlier, if possible. Learn what fares tend to be on a route so you can jump on a deal when one appears. Timing it right can save a family hundreds of dollars. And remember, with most fares you now have 24 hours to cancel for any reason. Use that to your advantage. Q: Is it worth paying for extras such as more legroom, access to shorter security lines and early boarding? A: There are a number of variables to consider here, including the length of your flight — and your legs. The airline and time of day can also matter. You can buy your way to the front of a security line. United, for examples, charges $9 for the privilege. But first consider the time you’re flying. At lunchtime on a Tuesday, the airport is probably empty anyway. However, if you’re leaving Orlando or Las Vegas on a Sunday, the fee could be money well spent. Boarding early improves your chances of finding overhead space. But that’s about it. If you don’t have a carry-on bag, then save the money — typically $10 each way. Only on Southwest — which doesn’t assign seats — is there an additional advantage: being first to pick where to sit. RENTAL CARS Q: Do I need rental car insurance? A: The rental firms sell collision damage waiver (CDW) insurance for up to $25 extra a day. It offers protection from theft, vandalism or other damage. It’s a major source of revenue. Decide whether you need this insurance long before you get to the counter. Your personal insurance policy likely covers rental cars. It probably also extends liability insurance to your rental, which you also need. But confirm this well ahead of time. Many credit cards offer rental car insurance. Some offer primary insurance. Most only cover what your personal insurance does not. And cards have plenty of exclusions. If you are renting for more than two weeks or traveling to Ireland, Israel, Jamaica, Australia, Italy or New Zealand,

you might not be covered. Exotic and luxury cars, some vans, motorcycles and SUVs aren’t covered. Your card probably doesn’t cover the rental company’s “loss-of-use” fee — a surcharge for the revenue lost while the vehicle is in the shop. Some personal insurance policies cover this, some don’t. Q: Is it worth adding a GPS or toll collection device? A: You don’t need to pay up to $14 extra a day for a GPS. If you own a portable GPS, bring it with you. Or use your smartphone. Just be warned: using the smartphone’s GPS tends to drain its battery. An automatic toll collection device will cost about $5 a day. It can save you time at busy toll plazas if you’re traveling during holiday weekends. But when traffic is normal, it is harder to justify the time savings. If you decline the service and the car still has a toll device, make sure it is properly stored in the protective case. If a toll booth picks up the signal you’ll be charged the toll and face a hefty penalty from the rental company. HOTELS Q: How can I save a few bucks on my stay? A: Ask about extra charges. Parking at some hotels might be $10 a night, while big city hotels can charge in excess of $50. Internet access might cost $10 a day or more. Many big hotels also have a mandatory resort fee — that includes Internet, phone calls and use of the pool — that can run $25 a night or more. Join the frequent guest program. Omni, Fairmont and Kimpton all give program members free Wi-Fi — even those who have yet to spend a night. Big chains typically run summer promotions. They offer loyalty club members rewards like a $25 gas card or a free future night after just two stays. Q: Are nonrefundable rooms a good deal? A: Sites like Priceline and Hotwire offer deep discounts in exchange for taking a chance. Vacationers only learn the name of a hotel after they pay upfront. They also aren’t guaranteed a bed type or choice of smoking or non-smoking room. And some hotels give such guests less-desirable room locations, like next to the ice machine. Many hotels now offer nonrefundable rates on their own websites. The savings might be less, but you still get to pick your room type and know where you will be staying. If your plans change and you rebook, however, you lose your money. Keep in mind that room prices can drop after you book. That discounted, nonrefundable rate could still be higher than if you booked the room a month later.
