Sheriff, magistrate judge candidates speak at forum TIMOTHY P. HOWSARE ROSWELL EDITOR

All six candidates running for magistrate judge and county sherif f addressed a crowd of about 50 people Monday night at First Baptist Church of Roswell during a forum sponsored by the Roswell Leadership Alumni Association and the Roswell Daily Record. Local business owner and legal aide Bobby Arnett and incumbent K.C. Rogers are running for magistrate judge. Rogers was appointed eight months by Gov.

Susana Martinez to fill the vacancy created when Eugene M. De Los Santos retired. Ar nett had also applied to fill the vacancy.

The four candidates for sheriff are Patrick Barncastle, lead investigator with the 5th Judicial District Attorney’s Office; Arthur Fleming, a gas company foreman and 16-year member of the New Mexico Mounted Patrol; Gary W. Graves, a 21-year law enforcement veteran; and J. Britt Snyder, who began as a deputy with the sheriff’s office 24 years ago and is now chief deputy.

All six candidates are Republicans, which means the winner for both seats will be determined at the June 3 Republican Primary. The forum was broadcast live by cable Channel 75 and KBIM 910 radio. The forum, which lasted about 70 minutes, will be rebroadcast every Monday at 6 p.m. on Channel 75 until June 2. The forum was moderated by Rick Kraft, a local attorney and member of the alumni association who writes a column for the Roswell Daily Record.

“The purpose of this forum is to inform and educate,” Kraft said during his opening remarks. Each candidate was given two minutes for opening and closing statements along with a minute and a half to answer five questions that were put together by the Roswell Leadership Alumni Association’s forum committee. There were no debates or questions from the audience. Nearly all of the candidates pointed out that 80 See FORUM, Page A3

Members of the New Mexico Youth ChalleNGe Academy present the colors during a fundraising event Friday, May 2, for Republican candidates in state and local elections. State Secretary of State Dianna J. Duran, who is running for re-election, was the guest speaker. The event was held at the Liberty.

‘Give Grande’ fundraising campaign event held today RANDAL SEYLER RECORD STAFF WRITER

“Give Grande! New Mexico,” and online fundraising campaign supporting local nonprofits, will be held all day today. The Community Foundation Coalition of New Mexico has organized this day of giving dedicated to supporting local causes. “Give Grande!” is one of many giving days happening across the country today as part of the national Give Local America event. “Together, we will send a message to the people of New Mexico that giving is good,” said Randy Royster, executive director of the Albuquerque Community Foundation. “Working together will make our state a better place.”

Until 11:59 p.m. tonight, donors are able to donate directly to the following nonprofits working in Roswell and Chaves County — Wings for L.I.F.E., Down Syndrome Foundation of Southeastern New Mexico, Big Brothers Big Sisters, Assurance Home, Embrace Inc. and the NMMI Foundation. To donate to “Give Grande!” go to the website Visitors to the website will also be able to search for nonprofits by name, city, geographic area and cause, and see in real-time what is raised across the state and for each nonprofit. Because “Give Grande!” is one of many giving days being held across the country, it is likely to be part of

the largest online fundraising event in history, Royster said. The coalition is encouraging everyone in the community to be a philanthropist. “A lot of people think you have to be rich to give back, but even the smallest donation can make a big difference to nonprofits,” said Denise Gonzales, event coordinator. “‘Give Grande!’ is designed to make it easy for donors to connect with nonprofits via a secure and simple website.” Wings for L.I.F.E. is excited to be participating in the first statewide Day of Giving that is also part of a nationwide Day of Giving set up to support local nonprofits, said Shelly Currier, See CAMPAIGN, Page A3

Tribble is learning all the aspects of ballooning, including set up, chasing, flying and packing after the flight is finished. She is accumulating hours for her student-pilot logbook in hopes of getting her own pilot’s license. Assisting Tribble is Amanda Jones, also from Alamogordo, who is a member of the U.S. Air Force and stationed at Holloman. The Old Timers Balloon Club established a scholarship in her name at New Mexico Military Institute in 2013 while she was deployed in Afghanistan. The club donated $2,100 to the fund at this year’s rally. The owners of the balloon, called Silver Spirit, are Roger MacKechnie (behind Jones) and Karen Martin (not pictured) from Tucson, Ariz.

Race Across USA to run through Roswell

If Chaves County Republicans have their way, the party will take back control of the New Mexico House of Representatives in the fall. The House has had a Democratic majority for 60 years. That was the underlying theme at a banquet and auction that was held Friday, at the Liberty private club by the Chaves County Republican Party. The guest speaker was New Mexico Secretary of State Dianna J. Duran, who is running for re-elec-

tion. She is unopposed in the primary and will be the party’s candidate in the November General Election. Duran, a Tularosa resident who had served the New Mexico Senate for 18 years, is the first Republican to hold that office since 1928. Duran said her of fice holds a “sacred trust” for the citizens of New Mexico. “The of fice is charged with supervising all elections in New Mexico,” she

In January, a team of runners will take to the roads for a run across America, with the intention of bringing fitness to the forefront in public schools. The route for that run will bring the athletes through Roswell in late February, said Darren and Sandy Van Soye, Race Across USA co-directors. The Van Soyes were in


Roswell Monday visiting with local officials in preparation for next year’s event. “We’re driving the route, and meeting people and officials along the way,” said Darren Van Soye. “As we go along, I jump out of the car and run for six miles or so each day.” The race starts on Jan. 16 and passes through California, Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, Louisiana, Arkansas, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, South Car-


olina, North Carolina, Virginia and finally Maryland. There are about a dozen runners signed up so far for the entire run, and about as many signed up for the shorter, cross-state runs which will also be part of the event. In February, the Race Across New Mexico takes place as a band of athletes will take an extreme sport to new extremes as they run 15 back-to-back marathons to cross the “Land of Enchantment,”

Healthier school meals: How 5 districts are faring WASHINGTON (AP) — Two years in, schools are having mixed success putting new healthier school lunch rules in place. Some report that students are excited about a variety of healthier options and have barely noticed the changes. Others say some kids are throwing fruits and vegetables away and balking at whole grains. The requirements are part of a government effort to make school lunches and breakfasts healthier. Championed by first lady Michelle Obama, the new standards have been phased in over the last two school years, with more changes coming in 2014. Not all schools are required to follow the requirements, but most do. If they don’t, they won’t receive government subsidies that partially reimburse schools for free and low-cost lunches for low-income kids. In Virginia’s Alexandria City Public Schools, school nutrition director Becky Domokos-Bays says students have adapted to whole grain rolls and pizza crusts, but have so far

rejected whole grain pastas. Here’s how five other school districts are doing: NEW MEXICO: ROSWELL INDEPENDENT SCHOOL DISTRICT Lyman Graham, director of student nutrition for Roswell and two other New Mexico school districts, says one of the biggest problems has been finding whole grain rich tortillas that kids will eat. Like Taylor in rural Georgia, he doesn’t have a lot of vendors to choose from, and he says the whole wheat tortillas he can get are slimy and don’t hold up. So he’s had to take popular breakfast burritos and wraps off his menus. He says he’s had more luck with whole wheat bread, which the kids haven’t complained about as much. OHIO: CINCINNATI PUBLIC SCHOOLS Jessica Shelly, food service director at Cincinnati’s urban public schools, says she started serving healthier foods in her lunchrooms years before the gover nment standards were required, so it has been easier for

kids to adjust. She has seen increased participation by enthusiastically highlighting the new menus with kids. She says salad bars with lots of variety — pickle slices, banana peppers, different kinds of beans, for example — give kids healthy options and also the sense that they are creating their own meals. GEORGIA: WARE COUNTY SCHOOL SYSTEM In rural Southeast Georgia, Stephanie Taylor, director of school nutrition for the Ware County School System, says she doesn’t have much of a selection from food service vendors. She has had a hard time finding tasty whole grain rich biscuits and grits, and would like to occasionally serve the white flour versions. Starting this fall, she won’t be able to do that. Taylor agrees that school lunches needed improvement and says kids have been more accepting as industry has formulated better tasting healthy foods. KANSAS: WALLACE COUNTY SCHOOLS

Attendees enjoy a performance from The Flying J Wranglers during a celebration of the Assurance Home’s 35th anniversary, held Sunday.

Hundreds of people came to help Assurance Home celebrate its 35th anniversary on Sunday. Those in attendance were treated to free ice cream and coconut tea provided by Classics Frozen Custard, homemade cookies and a fun concert provided by the world famous Flying J Wranglers. Many lucky participants were able to ride horses on Assurance Home’s front lawn. Assurance Home is a well-known and successful program providing therapeutic group home services to abused/neglected, homeless and at-risk adolescent children from throughout the Pecos Val-

ley and New Mexico.

Assurance Home opened its doors to children in April of 1979. The Home is a small, standalone nonprofit governed by a local board of directors and is a United Way Agency.

The purpose of Sunday’s event was for Assurance Home to express its appreciation to a loving community that has helped care for this special population of children for the past 35 years.

The children, staff and members of the board of directors greeted people as they arrived to thank them for their caring support.

requirements on proteins and grains. After hearing the same complaint from many schools across the country, USDA scrapped those requirements. NEW JERSEY: WEST NEW YORK SCHOOL DISTRICT Sal Valenza, food service director for West New York, says he got students involved early, hosting a healthier food fair so they

could sample new items when the district put in a healthier school lunch menu more than five years ago. The school also has what he calls a “harvest bar,” with locally-grown fruits and vegetables, and the district has taken chips out of elementary schools.

ALBUQUERQUE (AP) — A state legislator wants the Border Patrol to reconsider its policy for seizing medical marijuana at checkpoints in southern New Mexico.

Rep. Bill McCamley, D-Las Cruces, sent the head of Border Patrol’s parent agency a letter last week questioning the practice given that New Mexico has a program allowing use of marijuana for certain medicinal purposes. McCamley acknowledged that marijuana remains illegal under federal law but said federal policy should reflect the reality of New Mexico’s program, the Albuquerque Journal reported. The Border Patrol’s policy means medical marijuana users who live in southern New Mexico can’t take their marijuana elsewhere in the state, McCamley said.

Ten Reasons to Advertise Frequently

“Real Estate Corner”


By Connie DeNio of Roswell 622-7191 or 626-7948

Why do applications for credit ask whether you own or rent your home? The reason is clear. The ownership of real estate is a widely recognized sign of financial stability, since one must usually demonstrate that stability in order to buy real estate. It demonstrates a person’s determination, willingness to accept responsibility, and

to set and achieve longterm goals. Usually home ownership also indicates geographic stability, since most owners plan to stay at least a few years. Home ownership is an important step to financial independence, one that will influence both your quality of life and your creditworthiness. Call Me Today!©

Deadly side effect to fracking boom

CLARKSBURG, W.Va. (AP) — Booming production of oil and natural gas has exacted a little-known price on some of the nation’s roads, contributing to a spike in traffic fatalities in states where many streets and highways are choked with large trucks and heavy drilling equipment. An Associated Press analysis of traffic deaths and U.S. census data in six drilling states shows that in some places, fatalities have more than quadrupled since 2004 — a period when most American roads have become much safer even as the population has grown. “We are just so swamped,” said Sheriff Dwayne Villanueva of Karnes County, Texas, where authorities have been overwhelmed by the surge in serious accidents. The industry acknowledges the problem, and traffic agencies and oil companies say they are taking steps to improve safety. But no one imag-


ines that the risks will be eliminated quickly or easily. “I don’t see it slowing down anytime soon,” Villanueva said. The energy boom, fueled largely by new drilling technology, has created badly needed jobs, lifted local economies and drawn global manufacturers back to the United States. But the frenzy of drilling activity contributes heavily to the flood of traffic of all kinds that experts say has led to the increase in serious accidents and deaths. Not all of the crashes involved trucks from drilling projects, and the accidents have been blamed on both ordinary motorists and heavy equipment drivers. But the accidents have devastated families: two young boys crushed to death last year by a tanker truck in West Virginia; a Pennsylvania father killed by another tanker in 2011; a 19-year old Texas man fatally injured

in 2012 after colliding with a drilling truck on his way to work. A month later, on the same road, three retired teachers died in another collision with a truck.

Deadly crashes are “recognized as one of the key risk areas of the business,” said Marvin Odum, who runs Royal Dutch Shell’s exploration operations in the Americas.

Crashes often increase when the volume of traffic goes up, whether because of an improving economy, a new shopping mall or more people moving into the area. Still, the number of traffic fatalities in some regions has climbed far faster than the population or the number of miles driven.

In North Dakota drilling counties, the population has soared 43 percent over the last decade, while traffic fatalities increased 350 percent, to 63 last year from 14 ten years ago.

percent of all the crime in Roswell is related to drug trafficking. Arnett said he and his family are personally affected by crime because of repeated thefts at their fireworks business. He said that being a judge is similar to being a minister, because both require one to have a strong moral compass. “I care about the safety of the community, families and businesses,” he said. Rogers said he retired from the New Mexico State Police after 21 years. In his early years on the state police force, Rogers said he worked as an undercover narcotics agent and knows firsthand what the drug element is like. In the sherif f’s race, Barncastle was critical of the current administration for taking the sheriff’s office out of the drug task force. If elected, Barncastle said bringing the agency back into the task force would be a top priority. Snyder said although he supported the current sheriff’s decision for the department to exit the drug task force, he, too, would bring the agency back into the task force if

Since the Van Soyes wanted to run the Race Across USA while school was still in session, they were more or less forced to select a southern route to avoid the highest mountain passes along the Continental Divide during the winter, Darren Van Soye said.

said. “If the elections and voting are wrong then everything is wrong. The system doesn’t have integrity.” Duran said she favors voters presenting photo IDs at the polls, which recently became the law in Texas. “Voter ID prevents someone from stealing your vote,” she said. Duran said 80 percent of New Mexicans favor voter IDs, including many of the Democrats at the statehouse. However, it is the more radical “progressive Democrats” who oppose the IDs, she said. She said the City of Albuquerque has had a voter ID requirement in place for past eight years, and has not had significant issues with its law. Duran said since tak-


ing of fice she has slashed operating costs by $1 million.

In an interview with the Roswell Daily Record earlier in the day, Duran said another important accomplishment that has occurred under her watch is the transfer of the Corporations Bureau of the N.M. Public Regulation Commission Corporations to the Secretary of State’s office.

constitutional A amendment was passed by the electorate in 2012 to allow the challenge.

Before the transfer of authority, Duran said there was an average backlog of four months for a corporation to get chartered. “We now average three days,” she said.

Duran said at the banquet she cannot take her successes for granted, because her office has been targeted by the Democrats.

elected. He said the sheriff’s office pulled out of the task force because of deteriorating relationships. Graves said the sheriff is the lead law enforcement officer in the county. Graves frequently expressed his sentiments as a Christian, stating that he does not consume alcohol and would follow the examples set by Jesus.

Rest days were added more or less, once a week, so that the runners could visit schools along the route. “As we go across the country, riding the route, we’re also visiting with schools on behalf of the 100 Mile Club, a program that encourages school children to walk or run 100 miles in a school year,” Sandy Van Soye said. “They can do it either before school, during recess or after school.” The 100 Mile Club program began in California, and Sandy Van Soye said the couple is scheduled to meet with Socorro school district officials tomorrow to discuss starting a 100 Mile Club there. “We are doing this as a

fundraiser for the 100 Mile Club program,” she said. “The program asks students to pay $10 each to participate, but we want to raise funds for schools where the students can’t afford to pay the entry fee.” Students receive certificates as they reach milestones on their 100-mile journey, such as a 25-mile recognition, she added. Milestone incentives provide rewards and excitement to help kids stay focused during the school year, and year -end medal ceremonies celebrate the year’s achievements for all students with a certificate of completion and gold medal for those who complete their 100 miles, according to the program’s website. “We want to encourage children to exercise, and we

The guest of honor is less than sterling A4 Tuesday, May 6, 2014

Tell me Paris Hilton will be this year’s graduation speaker at MIT. Tell me Dennis Rodman is the new consensus choice to be peace negotiator in the Middle East. Tell me Donald Trump and Rush Limbaugh will co-author a book on how to reach and keep personal humility. But don’t tell me that the Los Angeles chapter of the NAACP was about to honor prominent bigot and Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling with a lifetime achievement award — for the second time! That the NAACP, which for most of the 20th century so courageously led the lonely battle against racial segregation, has fallen to the point where it would provide “cover” to Sterling — who, after the Justice Department charged him for refusing to rent his Los Angeles residential properties to African-Americans and Latinos, paid a then-record settle-


ment of $2.75 million — is sad bordering on tragic. How did the NAACP leadership overlook the sworn testimony of one of Sterling’s property supervisors describing Sterling’s ugly comments about black people and Latinos, who were renters in a building he had just bought: “that’s because of all the blacks in this building they smell, they’re not clean ... And it’s because of all the Mexicans they just sit around and smoke and drink all day”? The Justice Department brought its suit against Sterling in 2006. In 2008, the NAACP honored Sterling with its Humanitarian Award. In 2009, the year Sterling paid the $2.75 million to settle the Justice Department case, the Los Angeles NAACP recognized him with its President’s Award. This would not have been the first time an organization,

Roswell Daily Record



charity or college had publicly honored an undeserving honoree — who has deep pockets and an open checkbook. These tawdry transactions remind me of a story told about a young Winston Churchill, who, on a long train ride, fell into conversation with an exceptionally attractive woman. Churchill, emphasizing that he was only speaking hypothetically, asked the comely stranger if for 100,000 pounds, she would sleep with a man for one night. The woman reflected for some time before

answering that yes, for 100,000 pounds, she might agree to spend a single night with such a hypothetical man. Churchill, the story goes, then asked, “Would you sleep with me for 5 pounds?” Outraged and of fended, the woman reacts: “Mr. Churchill, what kind of woman do you think I am?” Churchill’s response: “Madam, we’ve already established that. Now we are haggling about the price.” One of the more bizarre aspects of the taped phone conversation between the married Sterling and his younger -by-a-half-century girlfriend, V. Stiviano, is his berating her because she has posted photos of herself on Instagram with some black acquaintances, including the retired basketball legend Magic Johnson. What obviously upsets Sterling is Stiviano’s being seen publicly in the company of black men. He

tells her to stop “broadcasting” that she has black friends before offering this illogical request-bargain: “You can sleep with them ... you can do whatever you want. “The little I ask you is not to promote it on that (Instagram) and not to bring them to my games.” In 1983, while speaking to then-Villanova coach Rollie Massimino about the possibility of his coaching the Clippers, Sterling allegedly said, “I want to know why you think you can coach these ni—ers.” That was some 31 years and a number of NAACP awards ago. But just maybe, as the old line goes, time really does wound all heels.

There ain’t no such thing as baggage that flies for free

The latest indicator that Americans believe in free stuff comes in the form of headlines, news stories and readers comments regarding a benevolent decision by Denver-based Frontier airlines. The company clearly has an interest in serving customers who need the lowest fares possible. To serve them, it will begin offering tickets that pay for nothing more than basic transportation from point A to point B. To travelers who can barely afford to fly, this should be cause for celebration. No longer will Frontier passengers pay the cost of flying carry-on bags if they don’t bring them on the trip. The airline already decided to stop charging customers for soft drinks and food. They can ask for these amenities and pay as they go. To the low-income traveler, this can be the difference between flying or enduring a long, agonizing bus ride. For some, it’s the difference between a trip and just staying home. Lots of people would rather travel with the clothes on their backs than stay home because an airline includes the costs of transporting bags in each ticket, by rote, without asking customers. Anyone who thinks bags fly free simply hasn’t run a business. Transporting a bag from one city to another costs money. Someone earning wages must process and check the bag. Passengers cramming bags into overhead bins cause more costly time on the ground. Carry-on bags create more work for flight attendants who are earning wages. Bags clearly raise an airline’s overhead. Any airline that says “bags fly free” is spoofing. The cost of transporting bags is included in tickets. Those who fly light subsidize people who fly with an assortment of bags. It’s an indisputable fact. There ain’t no such thing as a free lunch, and there ain’t no such thing as a bag that flies free. The cost is so significant that Frontier is willing to pass a portion of the savings on to passengers who choose to fly with no bags. The company will lower its base fare by an average of 12 percent for customers who fly without bags. A $300 flight would cost $264. Lots of frugal or struggling Americans will be happy to save $36 in return for flying light. Conversely, the person who chooses to fly with a bag will be charged $25 during online check-in or $35 at airport check-in. Frontier could not offer this savings if the reduction in bags would not genuinely reduce the company’s overhead. So, by helping people fly for less - by offering them the option to save money by leaving bags at home — Frontier creates headlines such as this from Monday’s New York Times: “Denver-based Frontier Airlines now charging for bags” The more accurate headline would be: “Denver -based Frontier Airlines creates option to not pay for bags” The story’s lead reads: “Passengers beware: More airline fees are on the way.” Precisely the opposite is true. The new fee structure gives travelers the option of a ticket that transports only a human. The ticket contains only the costs associated with flying a human and, presumably, a reasonable margin of profit. Because of the article’s headline and spin, reader comments are predictable: — “More and more reasons not to fly! If I can’t drive, I’m not going.” — “Good. Another airline I won’t fly ...” — “I don’t understand charging for a carry on ... You’re just making passengers angry ...” The airline is offering a discount, just as cable companies offer lower fees to customers who don’t want Showtime and HBO. Media types, and some of their readers, cannot see this. That’s because they’re helplessly confused by old pricing structures that bundle costs and pretend to give away sodas, snacks and free rides for bags. Discerning consumers, who avoid confusing hidden fees as freebies, will avail themselves of the option for better deals.


American federalism is very complex

American federalism is extraordinarily complex. At the most basic level, this complexity stems from the interrelated layers of government — federal, state, county, and city. The complexity is not just that there are multiple levels of government, but that these levels share some powers and responsibilities (a system that demands compromise), while at the same time each level has separate and distinct powers (which encourages competition and self-interest.) The problem is that the nature of American federalism makes it nearly impossible for citizens to hold anyone, be it a person, party, bureaucratic agency, or gover nment institution, solely accountable for, well, screw ups. This had led some to question whether the system of government put in place by the framers more than 200 years ago has outlived its usefulness. It has not. Our Founding Fathers deliberately created this complex system because they assumed that complexity would lead to liberty and political opportunity. That is, by creating a system with multiple access points they would leave us with a government that is “more responsive to the will of the people.” Moreover, they believed that the citizens’ pursuit of self-interest would create competition but that it would also lead to cooperation and collaboration. Well, they surely got that last part wrong, didn’t they? American federalism has evolved into a highly inef ficient bureaucratic beast. Italians used to say that “Mussolini was an idiot but he made the trains run on time.” Anyone who has spent some time around a bureaucratic agency or depart-


Dear Editor, Roswell was given the oportunity to experience a Polynesian evening on April 12 and much of the community attended with interest, support and enthusiasm. It is not often that the New Mexico Military Institute Pacific Islander Club cadets get to share their culture and love of dance. And when they do, our community benefits greatly. The cadets have very full schedules with their corps activities and sports, so the time they share with us is precious and greatly appreciated. They are honorable, sincere, kind, generous and dedicated young men and women. We are proud of them. This year



ment at some level in American government is familiar with jokes about the inefficiency of bureaucratic institutions. How a system created more than 200 years ago in America, the likes of which had never existed before, continues to not only work but actually thrive, is one of the questions that keeps funky political scientists awake at night. Which brings me to the question of public opinion. I teach political science and, in my experience, the biggest hurdle I have encountered is the fact that most college students do not care about politics. They’ve got better things to do, like posting something witty on Facebook, impressing that special person or staying awake in my class. Few Americans devote enough time and attention to politics to make informed decisions on the myriad political questions they are required to consider in America’s complex political system. This may just be a fact of life as life itself is complicated enough without having to worry about keeping up with political news. But even if it is rational for individual citizens to remain uninformed of political issues, this ignorance causes negative effects on our political system. Primarily because uniformed citizens are easily manipulated and, as a consequence, poorly prepared to pursue their interests

the cadets were joined by a dance group from Midland, Texas, Aloha O Hawai’i, led by Diane Faulkner and who is a Kumu Hula. Because many of our female NMMI cadets had wonderful opportunities to compete in various sports and military training events, we wished them well and were then even more thankful for the Texas dancers. The Sweet Leilanis would like to thank the following sponsors and donors that made the evening a great success: The Home Depot, the bakeries of Albertsons, Farmers Market North, Walmart and Lawrence Brothers, Culligan Water, the Roswell Daily Record, KBIM radio’s Round

in politics. And, here is the crucible of American federalism: Politicians not only know this, they depend on the apathy of the common voters. Indeed, public opinion does not exist in a vacuum; it is shaped by government and political leaders, private groups, and the media, and it is done deliberately in order to achieve their own goals. A gap continues to exist between public opinion and public policy in American politics. In part, this gap is explained by the impact of institutions and how they channel preferences in consequential ways. For example, in some instances, public opinion does not translate into policy outcomes because interest groups and viewpoints held by intense minorities compete with majority sentiment to influence the government. Finally, the extent to which policy outcomes do not comport with public opinion on a given issue is due to the fact that our government is more a republic than a direct democracy. This is the weakest link in the evolution of American federalism: The decision by the Framers to have representative government, rather than making most policy by referendum or initiative, limits the extent to which public opinion will translate unfettered into policy outcomes. And, so long as the public remains willingly uniformed, it will continue to be the weakest link.

DL big priority for Cowboys in draft Days left to register

Tuesday, May 6, 2014

IRVING, Texas (AP) — The Dallas Cowboys didn’t draft a defensive lineman last year even though they were switching to a scheme that required one more. Executive vice president Stephen Jones kept calling it a “position of strength,” a claim the son of owner and general manager Jerry Jones can’t make now that Dallas has released franchise sacks leader DeMarcus Ware. And even though the Cowboys added several free agents to their front four, the search is on for their next elite pass rusher. Dallas has plenty of other needs after a third straight 8-8

Roswell Daily Record

season and a fourth consecutive year without the playoffs. The Cowboys have the 16th pick Thursday night. “I think where you get in trouble is, if you’re drafting 16 ... and your 24th-ranked player is a defensive lineman, and you pass over eight players to get to that defensive lineman, I think you make a mistake,” draft analyst and former Dallas player personnel director Gil Brandt said in an interview for the team’s website. “I just think you have to take the best player available and build your team from that.”

The biggest problem with the Cowboys saying they thought they were set up front a year ago was them knowing nose tackle Jay Ratliff was injured and disgruntled, refusing to use the team’s medical staff in his rehabilitation. Now Ratliff is in Chicago after his midseason release without playing for Dallas last year, Ware is in Denver as a cost-saving move, and 2013 sacks leader Jason Hatcher has moved on to Washington. The Cowboys did re-sign Anthony Spencer on a scaledback one-year deal after keeping

him under the franchise tag for two straight seasons. He only played one game last year because of a left knee injury. Dallas also added defensive tackle Henry Melton, a starter in Chicago before injuring a knee last year, and journeymen Jeremy Mincey and Terrell McClain. Five things to know about the Cowboys going into the draft: MOVING UP OR DOWN: Dallas has done each the past two years. The Cowboys moved up eight spots to grab cornerback Morris Claibor ne at No. 6 in 2012, a pick getting dangerously close to becoming a bust if the

former LSU player doesn’t have a productive season this year. They went down 13 spots last year to get center Travis Frederick with the 31st pick. While Dallas was criticized for not getting more from San Francisco in the trade of picks, Frederick was a starter from the first day of rookie camp and by all accounts had a solid debut. ROMO’S REPLACEMENT: This question will get more prominent every year, particularly with 34year-old Tony Romo coming off

MIAMI (AP) — A high pitch count ended Jonathon Niese’s night and propelled the Miami Marlins to another walkoff win. Niese shut down the Marlins through seven innings but, after his pitch count reached 108, the Mets went to their bullpen and it all fell apart. Casey McGehee hit a sharp grounder that caromed into right field off the back of reliever Gonzalez Germen’s foot, allowing the winning run to score, and the Miami Marlins rallied late from a three-run deficit Monday night to beat the New York Mets 4-3. Jarrod Saltalamacchia hit a tying double in the eighth off Daisuke Matsuzaka, who failed to retire any of the five batters he faced. “When I was warming up in

the bullpen, I was struggling with my command,” Matsuzaka said through an interpreter. “I tried to focus on the batter and getting outs. I really regret taking away Niese’s win and the team’s win.” Giancarlo Stanton had an RBI single and the Marlins scored another run on shortstop Omar Quintanilla’s fielding error in the eighth. “Anytime a game is lost it’s tough to watch,” Niese said. “But it’s just one game. I never want to leave a game but — 108 pitches — I figured our bullpen has been doing great.” Niese allowed five hits, struck out six and walked one. He has permitted one run or less in his last four starts. Christian Yelich led of f the

ninth with a single off Scott Rice (0-1). He advanced to second on Ed Lucas’ sacrifice. Ger men intentionally walked Giancarlo Stanton before McGehee got his RBI single. Marlins closer Steve Cishek (21) pitched to a scoreless ninth for the win. Miami improved to 15-5 at home and is 6-1 on its current nine-game homestand. The Marlins have won two in a row in their final at-bat. “We’re a good ball team,” Saltalamacchia said. “We go out there every day and have a good approach.” Yelich and Ed Lucas led off the eighth with walks. Stanton followed with an RBI single and Quintanilla let McGehee get

76ers guard Carter-Williams wins NBA Rookie of Year See WIZARDS, Page B2

Michael Carter-Williams

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Michael Carter-Williams has something to show for being a bright spot in a dismal season for the Philadelphia 76ers. Carter-Williams won the NBA’s Rookie of the Year Award on Monday after becoming only the third player since 1950-51 to lead all rookies in scoring (16.7), rebounding (6.3) and assists (6.2). Oscar Robertson (1960-61) and Alvan Adams (1975-76) were the others.

Despite the performance of their dynamic guard, the Sixers were awful this season. They were 19-73 and tied an NBA record by losing 26 straight games. “I’d definitely trade this award to be in the playoffs in a second,” Carter Williams said. “Coaches tell me to watch the playoffs to look at how different the game is and I do see it. It’s a whole different season. This game is about winning. I hope I set a positive exam-

ple about leading your team in a good way no matter what. I hope guys that come in know the core of this team takes things seriously and we want to build something special.” Carter-Williams received 104 of a possible 124 firstplace votes. The Orlando Magic’s Victor Oladipo finished second and T rey Burke of the Utah Jazz was third. “Michael made an immediate impact on the court

this season, but his dedication, professionalism and contributions to both the organization and the Philadelphia community make him all the more deserving of this award,” Sixers owner Josh Harris said in a statement. “This is an incredibly proud moment for the 76ers and one we are thrilled to share with him, the city and our fans.” Allen Iverson is the only other player in Sixers history to win the award. The



11th overall pick from Syracuse in last year’s draft, Carter-Williams is the first player picked 10th or lower to win since Mark Jackson did it in 1987 for New York. “Michael performed and represented the Sixers organization this past season in a manner befitting of the 2013-14 NBA Rookie of the Year,” said co-managing owner David Blitzer. “He never stopped working from See ROOKIE, Page B2

The Wizards know there is a lot more work to do in this best-of-seven series. Game 2 is Wednesday in Indianapolis. So far, though, things have gone well for the upstart Wizards. After clinching their first playoff berth since 2008, the Wizards have advanced to the second round for the first time since 2005, won at Indiana for the first time since April 18, 2007, and have their first secondround win since April 28, 1982. Washington has opened these playoffs with four straight road wins and put the pressure right back on the top seed in the Eastern Conference. It doesn’t get better than that for a young team that beat Chicago 4-1 in the opening round. “The way I think about it, I’m 20 years old, I’m playing in the playoffs, something I’ve always dreamed of. Why not embrace it?” Beal said. “Why not accept the challenge and have fun with it? That’s all I’m doing — having fun.” For the Pacers, it was another kick in the pants.

They were outrebounded 53-36 and were outscored 19-5 on second-chance points. They got beat outside as Washington made a franchise playoff-record 10 3-pointers with Ariza going 6 of 6. They got no points and no rebounds from 7foot-2 center Roy Hibbert, who has looked nothing like the All-Star he was during the first half of the season. And when they were desperately trying to rally in the fourth quarter, Indiana went 7 minutes without a basket. Things got so frustrating that even the emotional Lance Stephenson lost his cool and snapped at coach Frank Vogel when he was yanked with 1 minute to play in the third quarter. Vogel said he took Stephenson out because he didn’t want him playing 48 minutes. Stephenson said he was mostly mad at himself. “I waited too late,” Stephenson said.

Roswell Daily Record Los Angeles extended its lead to 24 points in the second quarter and took a 69-52 halftime lead with Paul getting 22 points and six assists. Durant and Westbrook scored 16 points each in the first half, but the Thunder committed 11 turnovers before halftime. A quick 3-pointer and a pull-up jumper by Paul pushed the Clippers’ lead to 78-56 in the opening minutes of the third quarter. The Clippers reached 100 points with just over a minute left in the period and led 104-78 heading into the fourth quarter. First-year coach Brett Brown had enough confidence in Carter-Williams to give him the responsibility of leading the team on the court. They traded away All-Star point guard Jrue Holiday to clear the way for Carter-Williams. With an eye toward the future, the Sixers traded Evan Turner, Spencer Hawes and Lavoy Allen in February. They have a 19.9 percent chance at getting the No. 1 pick in this year’s draft and are also owed New Orleans’ lottery pick — unless the Pelicans win a top-3 pick. With possibly two firstround selections, CarterWilliams and 2013 lottery pick Nerlens Noel returning from a knee injury, the Sixers could be a contender soon. “When I first got here, I really didn’t know what to expect,” Carter Williams said. “I am not a person that trusts a lot of people. My circle is really close, especially when it comes to basketball, because everyone has an opinion. But I have a lot of trust in coach Brown.” Can-Am League

Jets’ Vick pays $10K to charity for No. 1 FINANCIAL /SPORTS

Roswell Daily Record

NEW YORK (AP) — Michael Vick’s new jersey number cost him $10,000 — all of it going to charity. The New York Jets quarterback negotiated for the number with punter Ryan Quigley, who previously wore No. 1, during workouts and the two came to an agreement. Quigley gave it up on condition that Vick pay $10,000 for it and donate all of the money to charity. “I think it’s great that Ryan was willing to change as long as it was for a good cause,” Vick said in a statement released by his publicist Monday night. “I loved his idea.”

Vick plans to make a donation in Quigley’s name to Teen Angel of North Myrtle Beach, S. C. — Quigley is a North Myrtle Beach native — and to the Boys and Girls Club of New York. “Most of the time in the NFL, if a veteran requests your number, you work out a financial agreement between the two players,” Quigley said in the statement. “I was not interested in the money for myself. I wanted to find a way to help some others.” Vick announced last week he had chosen to wear No. 1 a few days after changing his mind about

his selection of No. 8. Vick has worn No. 7 since high school, but that is currently wor n by second-year quarterback Geno Smith. After signing with the Jets in March, Vick insisted Smith would keep the number and he would find a dif ferent one to wear. Vick and Smith will compete for the starting job in training camp. “I looked at the available numbers and thought I would go with No. 8 for my new start with the Jets,” Vick said. “It just didn’t look right. I didn’t feel right. I started talking with Ryan about No. 1.” Vick will become the first

How will Manziel fare in the draft? HOUSTON (AP) — And now comes the great leap to the NFL for Johnny Football. Johnny Manziel, a Heisman Trophy winner and one of college football’s most entertaining players, looks to translate his improvisational game to the next level. But questions abound about the quarterback’s skills and hard-partying habits. That’s why opinions vary on where he’ll end up on draft night. Many believe he should be picked early in the first round. Others, like former NFL quarterback and current ESPN analyst Ron Jaworski, don’t think he should be taken before the third round. If teams are sold on him as a player, he may face obstacles from those reticent to deal with the circus-like atmosphere that seems to follow him everywhere. It’s dif ficult at times to separate Manziel from his over-the-top Johnny Football persona and figure out exactly who this 21-year-old Texan is. Is he the beloved teammate who piled up almost 10,000 yards in just two seasons and put the Aggies back on the football map? Or the petulant, Drake-obsessed, swag-oozing figure who mocked Rice defenders by fake-signing autographs after he was suspended by the NCAA for an autograph offense? The answer: probably a little of both. But even some who question his character are still enamored of what he could bring to a team. “As far as the face of the franchise, sometimes that’s not definable,” NFL Network lead draft analyst Mike Mayock said. “I look at Johnny Manziel, whatever it is, he has it. I know on Sunday ... he’s going to show up with an edge about him, thinking he’s the best guy on the field and he’s going to elevate the

play of those around him. (But) I also struggle with him a little bit with his offthe-field antics.” Manziel’s recent pro day was more like a Hollywood production than an NFL workout. There was a soundtrack featuring Drake songs; a customized wardrobe from Nike; and former President George H.W. Bush, his wife Barbara and their two dogs watching from the sidelines. He attended this year’s Final Four with Drake, and the rapper dropped the track “Draft Day” last month in which he mentions the quarterback by name. “When you’re dealing with a high-profile position like the quarterback, obviously there’s some well-documented things to cover and to consider,” said Jon Gruden, the “Monday Night Football” analyst and former NFL coach. “Manziel brings a lot of excitement and interest to your organization. Maybe some people don’t want to be part of it. That will be up to them.” While this kind of spectacle might scare some away, from a marketing standpoint it could be a goldmine. Ken Ungar, president and founder of U/S Sports Advisors, a sports and entertainment marketing agency, says Manziel is a “marketer’s dream.” But he’s careful to point out that Manziel will have to produce in the NFL to fulfill his marketing potential. “Even though he would inject a lot of excitement into teams like Cleveland and Jacksonville, if he’s not able to show the skills on the field, that won’t amount to much by the time October rolls around,” Ungar said. Manziel could also fill what will soon be a void with Peyton Manning and Tom Brady inching closer to the end of their careers.

Ukraine sends elite force to Odessa ODESSA, Ukraine (AP) — Ukraine sent an elite national guard unit to its southern port of Odessa, desperate to halt a spread of the fighting between government troops and a pro-Russia militia in the east that killed combatants on both sides Monday. The government in Kiev intensified its attempts to bring both regions back under its control, but seemed particularly alarmed by the bloodshed in Odessa. It had been largely peaceful until Friday, when clashes killed 46 people, many of them in a government building

that was set on fire. The tensions in Ukraine also raised concerns in neighboring Moldova, another for mer Soviet republic, where the government said late Monday it had put its borders on alert. Moldova’s breakT rans-Dniester away region, located just northwest of Odessa and home to 1,500 Russian troops, is supported by Moscow, and many of its residents sympathize with the proRussia insurgency. The loss of Odessa — in addition to a swath of industrial eastern Ukraine — would be catastrophic for the interim government

LAGOS, Nigeria (AP) — Nigeria’s Islamic extremist leader is threatening to sell the nearly 300 teenage schoolgirls abducted from a school in the remote northeast three weeks ago, in a new videotape received Monday. Abubakar Shekau for the first time also claimed responsibility for the April 15 mass abduction, warning that his group plans to attack more schools and abduct more girls. “I abducted your girls,” said the leader of Boko Haram, which means “Western education is sinful.” He described the girls as “slaves” and said, “By Allah, I will sell them in the marketplace.” The hourlong video starts with fighters lifting automatic rifles and shooting in the air as they chant “Allahu akbar!” or “God is great.” It was unclear if the video was made before or after reports emerged last week that some of the girls have been forced to marry their abductors — who paid a nominal bride price of $12 — and that others have been carried into

neighboring Cameroon and Chad. Those reports could not be verified. In the video, Shekau also said the students “will remain slaves with us.” That appears a reference to the ancient jihadi custom of enslaving women captured in a holy war, who then can be used for sex. “They are slaves and I will sell them because I have the market to sell them,” he said, speaking in the Hausa language of northern Nigeria. The video was reviewed by The Associated Press, and both the face and the voice of the leader of Boko Haram were recognizable. Shekau brushed off warnings that the abductions could be an international crime, saying in English, as if to reach his accusers in the international community: “What do you know about human rights? You’re just claiming human rights (abuses), but you don’t know what it is.” An intermediary who has said Boko Haram is ready to negotiate ransoms for the girls also said two of the girls have died of snakebite and about 20

in Kiev, leaving the country cut off from the Black Sea. Ukraine already lost a significant part of its coastline in March, when its Crimean Peninsula was annexed by Russia. Compared with eastern Ukraine, Odessa is a wealthy city with an educated and ethnically diverse population of more than 1 million. Jews still make up 12 percent of the population of the city, which once had a large Jewish community. “The people of Odessa are well-educated and understand perfectly well that Russia is sowing the seeds of civil war and

destabilization in Ukraine,” said Vladimir Kureichik, a 52-year -old literature teacher who left Crimea after it became part of Russia. The White House said it was “extremely concerned” by the violence in southern Ukraine. “The events in Odessa dramatically underscore the need for an immediate de-escalation of tensions in Ukraine,” said spokesman Jay Carney. He suggested Russia still must follow through with its part of a diplomatic deal aimed at defusing the tensions. In easter n Ukraine,

The Russian Foreign Ministry put the blame squarely on Kiev, which “stubbornly continues to wage war against the people of its own country.” The ministry urged what it called the “Kiev organizers of the terror” to pull back the troops and hold peaceful negotiations to resolve the crisis.

Nigeria’s police have said more than 300 girls were abducted. Of that number, 276 remain in captivity and 53 escaped.

The mass abduction and the military’s failure to rescue the girls and young women have ignited national outrage with demonstrations in major cities.

Brotherhood will not return to Egypt

experts worried that cases could spike as the weather becomes warmer and wetter in the coming months across the northern hemisphere. The vast majority of new cases are in Pakistan, a country which an independent monitoring board set up by the WHO has called “a powder keg that could ignite widespread polio transmission.”

Dozens of polio workers have been killed over the last two years in Pakistan, where militants accuse them of spying for the U.S. government. Those suspicions stem at least partly from the disclosure that the CIA used a Pakistani doctor to uncover Osama bin Laden’s hideout by trying to get blood samples from his family under the guise of a hepatitis vaccination program. U.S. commandos killed the al-Qaida leader in May 2011 in the Pakistani garrison town of Abbottabad.

CAIRO (AP) — Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi, the former military chief who removed Egypt’s Islamist president and who is now poised to win the post in elections this month, said the Muslim Brotherhood will never return as an organization, accusing it of using militant groups as cover to destabilize the country. El-Sissi spoke in the first TV interview of his campaign, aired Monday, vowing that restoring stability and bringing development were his priorities. The comments were a seemingly unequivocal rejection of any political reconciliation with the Brotherhood, which was Egypt’s most powerful political force until el-Sissi removed President Mohammed Morsi, a member of the group, last summer. Since ousting Morsi, elSissi has been riding an overwhelming media frenzy lauding him as Egypt’s savior, and his status as the country’s strongest figure all but guarantees him a victory in the May 26-27 election. El-Sissi’s only opponent in the race is leftist politician Hamdeen Sabahi, the third-place finisher in the 2012 election won by Morsi. El-Sissi’s comments were a stark signal of his intention to ensure the elimination of the 86-year-


gunfire and multiple explosions rang out in and around Slovyansk, a city of 125,000 in the Russianspeaking heartland that has become the focus of the ar med insurgency against the government in Kiev.

Spread of polio now a global emergency El-Sissi says Muslim

LONDON (AP) — For the first time ever, the World Health Organization on Monday declared the spread of polio an international public health emergency that could grow in the next few months and unravel the nearly three-decade effort to eradicate the crippling disease. The agency described current polio outbreaks across at least 10 countries in Asia, Africa and the Middle East as an “extraordinary event” that required a coordinated international response. It identified Pakistan, Syria and Cameroon as having allowed the virus to spread beyond their borders, and recommended that those three governments require citizens to obtain a certificate proving they have been vaccinated for polio before traveling abroad. “Until it is eradicated, polio will continue to spread internationally, find and paralyze susceptible kids,” Dr. Bruce Aylward, who leads WHO’s polio efforts, said during a press briefing. Critics, however, questioned whether Monday’s announcement would make much of a difference, given the limits faced by governments confronting not only polio but armed insurrection and widespread poverty. “What happens when you continue whipping a horse to go ever faster, no matter how rapidly he is already running?” said Dr. Donald A. Henderson, who led the WHO’s initiative to get rid of smallpox, the only human disease ever to have been eradicated. The WHO has never before issued an international alert on polio, a disease that usually strikes children under 5 and is most often spread through infected water. There is no specific cure, but several vaccines exist. Experts are particularly concerned that polio is re-emerging in countries previously free of the disease, such as Syria, Somalia and Iraq, where civil war or unrest now complicates efforts to contain the virus. It is happening during the traditionally low season for the spread of polio, leaving

old Brotherhood as both a political and ideological force in the country. He is building on an unprecedented popular resentment of the group, after its rise to power in the past three years.

Asked whether the Brotherhood will no longer exist under his presidency, el-Sissi replied, “Yes. Just like that.” “It’s not me that finished it, the Egyptians have. The problem is not with me,” he said.

The Brotherhood and its Islamist allies won every election following the 2011 ouster of autocrat Hosni Mubarak, dominating the parliament and capturing the presidency under Morsi. The Brotherhood’s electoral strength was largely rooted in a widespread grassroots organization it had built up for decades despite being banned under Mubarak. But after a year in office, millions joined protests demanding Morsi’s removal, accusing his Brotherhood of monopolizing power and seeking to change the country’s identity along the lines of Brotherhood ideology — prompting el-Sissi’s ouster of Morsi.

DEAR ABBY: I recently went in on a gift with my friend “Ali” for our other friend, “Gena.” Ali offered to purchase and wrap the gift, a nice wallet from an inexpensive store. Imagine my surprise when Ali turned up at Gena’s birthday party with the wallet elaborately wrapped in expensive designer paper. At first, I thought she had spent more of her money and upgraded our gift, but when Gena unwrapped the designer packaging to reveal the original wallet we

had selected, I was taken aback. It turned out that Ali had reused the wrapping paper from a gift her husband had given her, disguising our present as something it wasn’t. Gena was clearly disappointed. Other guests who had been eyeing it looked excited at first, then confused. I felt our gift wasn’t appreciated and we ended up looking cheap. I was at a loss for words. What would have been the appropriate way to handle the situation? Is this normal gift-wrapping practice, or did Ali cross the line? FLABBERGASTED IN FLORIDA DEAR FLABBERGASTED: Reusing wrapping paper isn’t unusual. Gena’s reaction to the gift was inappropriate. Instead of letting her disappointment show, Gena should have smiled and graciously thanked you and Ali for her gift. (Remember the phrase, “It’s the thought that counts”?) As for you, all you needed to say was

“Happy Birthday!”



DEAR ABBY: With Mother’s Day nearly upon us, would you remind your readers that stepmothers are worthy of recognition, too? If one has any regard for the feelings of his or her stepmom, PLEASE make her day by calling or visiting her and telling her how much she means to you. And I don’t mean a phone call at 9 p.m. I married my husband when his sons were in their late teens. Every Mother’s Day for 14 years I have been reminded that his sons choose not to recognize me, even though our relationships are very good. (One of them is a stepfather himself.) It’s a real heartbreaker, believe me. GIVING UP ON WAITING IN OREGON DEAR GIVING UP ON WAITING: If you think you are the only

stepmother who feels unappreciated on Mother’s Day, think again. I have heard from many stepmothers who have written letters that are variations on this theme. There can be reasons for it — the fact that you didn’t raise them, fear that it would be somehow disloyal to their birth mother, unresolved relationship issues or just being preoccupied.

Family Circus

If you haven’t discussed this with your stepsons, perhaps you should. Or better yet, your husband should. But if that doesn’t solve the problem, for your own sake, stop brooding about it and direct your attention elsewhere.

Today’s Crossword Puzzle

Dear Heloise: I have an idea that came from one of your readers’ hints. Your reader used cheap, rubber-backed bathroom rugs as FLOOR MATS in her car. I had been researching some sort of removable car-seat covers for my SUV because my dog is with me daily, as are my children and their multiple friends. The covers that I found are not easily removed, and nobody wants to sit where the dirty dog has been lounging. When I saw that hint, I figured that I’d give them a try on top of the seats. This has worked perfectly. As you know, dogs aren’t at all dainty when they enter a vehicle. These bath rugs stay in place beautifully, are puncture-resistant, comfortable for the dog and easily removed and placed on the floor when children are in the vehicle. Best part? You can pop them in the washing machine at any time! To make the rubber backing last longer, I air-dry them. Genny F. in Virginia

Dear Readers: Here’s a hint for when you are getting ready for the day: After putting on your makeup, take a moment to clean one or two items in your makeup drawer or bathroom cabinet. I use a microfiber cloth, dampened with a little water, to wipe off eye shadow, foundation or other items from the drawer. Cleaning a few things as you use them means you don’t have such a big cleanup session to do later on. Heloise P.S.: Take this time to check expiration dates on your makeup, and determine which items are running out or need to be replaced on your next trip to the store.


Dear Heloise: I recently purchased one of those coffee makers that use the little plastic cups. Today I went in search of something I could put on my counter to hold these cups. After seeing how big and expensive the holders that are specifically designed for this purpose are, I went in search of something simpler and not too expensive. I found what I needed in the bath section: a small, 6-by-8-inch wire mesh basket. It holds nine plastic cups and fits nicely on my counter near the coffee maker. It’s smaller and saved me a lot of money. Alma D. in Nebraska Dear Heloise: I enjoy the mints that come in small metal containers. I keep the empty containers and use them to store small jewelry pieces, like earrings and rings. I even have lined a couple with anti-tarnish cloths to not only protect my jewelry from tarnishing, but also from possible damage while I travel with certain pieces.

Rockwell’s Red Sox classic shown at Fenway BOSTON (AP) — A Nor man Rockwell painting of Boston Red Sox players that is estimated to sell for up to $30 million this month was shown off at Fenway Park Monday with two of the men depicted in the work on hand to reminisce about its creation. The painting, “The Rookie (Red Sox Locker Room),” appeared on the cover of the March 2, 1957, issue of the Saturday Evening Post. Christie’s in New York is offering it May 22 with a pre-sale estimate of $20 million to $30 million. The painting shows Hall of Famer T ed Williams, pitcher Frank Sullivan, right fielder Jackie Jensen, catcher Sammy White, and second baseman Billy Goodman. The seasoned, confident players are seen facing an awkward newcomer arriving in the locker room for spring training — dressed in a crumpled suit and a battered bowler hat while also clutching a suitcase, baseball bat and gloves. On Monday, Sullivan and Rockwell’s model for the rookie — Sherman Safford — got to see the painting at Fenway. Sullivan said he and some of his teammates didn’t know who Rockwell was when they were asked to pose for him in Stockbridge. “We were just ball players,” he

said. “We were just doing what we were told to do. And then to have it go like it has and become something of value as they claim it’s gonna be, it’s just unbelievable.” Safford was a high school athlete from the western Massachusetts town of Pittsfield when he was asked to model for Rockwell. Safford says he was actually better at basketball and didn’t make the high school baseball team. “Thanks to Mr. Rockwell, however, I got into the Hall of Fame before my heroes did - it was in the library, but that cover was there. It was awesome,” he said. Williams, nearing the end of his career, was the only player who did not pose in Rockwell’s hometown of Stockbridge. The artist had to rely on baseball cards and photographs for the details of his face. The anonymous owner acquired it in 1986, and it has remained in the same private collection since then. The painting was exhibited for six days at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston until Sunday. It was previously on show there in 2005 and 2008, following World Series victories by the Red Sox. In December, Rockwell’s 1951 “Saying Grace” sold at Sotheby’s for $46 million. It set an action record for the artist.
