Dexter council OK’s shaky audit
Vol. 121, No. 111 50¢ Daily / $1 Sunday
The Town of Dexter faced and consequently approved its audit for the 2011 fiscal year, Tuesday, which includes findings of alleged fraudulent use of taxpayer’s money for personal use and discloses instances of noncompliance. The Dexter Council approved the audit 4-0 at its regular business meeting. The public remained mute, sporadically shaking

A Nature’s Dairy delivery truck sinks into the pavement Tuesday morning near the former Alco Store, 900 W. Hobbs St. Dale Juarez, driver, said he was driving in the area after making a delivery when suddenly the left rear tires fell into an unmarked hole. “I didn’t know what was going on, it happened so fast,” he said. “And I jumped out of there quick! It was scary.” The company is trying to determine who is responsible for the hole, and why there was no barricade.
The jury trial for David Lawrence, former Goddard high School coach, started Tuesday. Lawrence is charged with criminal sexual contact after allegations of sexual misconduct with a student on Feb. 4, 2011. In her opening statement, Assistant District Attorney Florie Nunez told the jurors, “A line was crossed. He had an opportunity to have a relationship with a 17-year-old.” She said the issue was how far he had allowed this to go. Nunez explained that Lawrence’s wife was out of town. “It was the biggest game of the season and he left early. Texting her, he gave her permission to come to his home.” Nunez informed the jurors that See TRIAL, Page A2

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Danny Granger scored 25 points to help the Indiana Pacers defeat the Orlando Magic 105-87 on Tuesday night and clinch their firstround Eastern Conference playoff series 4-1. It was Indiana’s first series win since 2005 and its first clincher on its home court since the first round of the 2000 playoffs. The Pacers will play Miami or New York in the second round.

ALBUQUERQUE (AP) — A scientific ghost town in the heart of southeastern New Mexico oil and gas country will hum with the latest next-generation technology — but no people. A $1 billion city without residents will be developed in Lea County near Hobbs, officials said Tuesday, to help researchers test everything from intelligent traffic systems and next-generation wireless networks to automated washing machines and self-flushing toilets. Hobbs Mayor Sam Cobb said the unique research facility that looks like an empty city will be a key for diversifying the economy of the nearby community, which after the oil bust of the 1980s saw bumper stickers asking the last person to leave to turn out the lights. “It brings so many great opportunities and puts us on a world stage,” Cobb told The Associated Press
before the announcement. Pegasus Holdings and its New Mexico subsidiary, CITE Development, said Hobbs and Lea County beat out Las Cruces, for the Center for Innovation, Technology and Testing. The CITE project is being billed as a first-of-its kind smart city, or ghost town of sorts, that will be developed on about 15 square miles west of Hobbs. Bob Brumley, senior managing director of Pegasus Holdings, said the town will be modeled after the real city of Rock Hill, S.C., complete with highways, houses and commercial buildings, old and new. No one will live there, although they could as houses will include all the necessities, like appliances and plumbing. The point of the town is to enable researchers to test new technologies on existing infrastructure

On one of the cloudiest days to hit Roswell in a while, a new solar carport on Eastern New Mexico University-Roswell’s campus, the only project of its kind in the state, was unveiled, Tuesday. The commissioning ceremony, held on the campus, signaled that the panels were actively producing electricity. “What you see right here is not only New Mexican made, New Mexican designed, but New Mexican engineered. It shows off the ability of New Mexicans to be the world leaders of this technology,” Richard Fialho, manager of new business development of Sacred Power Corp., said.

Indiana Treasurer Richard Mourdock speaks to supporters in Indianapolis, Tuesday, after he defeated incumbent Sen. Richard Lugar, R-Ind., in the primary.
WASHINGTON (AP) — Six-ter m Indiana Sen. Richard Lugar was routed by the right flank of his own Republican Party Tuesday night, and North Carolina voters decided overwhelmingly to strengthen their state’s gay marriage ban — a conservative show of enthusiasm and strength six months before the nation chooses between Democratic President Barack Obama and GOP foe Mitt Romney. Romney swept three Republican primaries, moving ever closer to sealing his nomination. “I have no regrets about running for re-election,
even if doing so can be a very daunting task,” the 80-year-old Lugar said as he conceded to the tea party-backed GOP opponent who ended his nearly four -decade career in the Senate. Lugar’s foe, state Treasurer Richard Mourdock, had painted the Republican senator as too moderate for the conservative state. North Carolinians voted to amend their state constitution to define marriage as between one man and one woman, effectively outlawing gay unions. Also Tuesday, Democrats were picking a nominee to challenge Republican Wis-

The contests overshadowed Romney’s continued progress toward the GOP presidential nomination. He won the GOP presidential primaries in Indiana, North Carolina and West Virginia, drawing close to the 1,144 delegates he needs to clinch the nomination. He was likely to win 100 or so delegates of the 288 he still needed.
In the biggest race of the night, Lugar lost to state Treasurer Mourdock, who will face Democratic Rep. See LUGAR, Page A3

He touched my leg or my arm.” She admitted that she had a crush on him since her freshman year when she took health from him, and she acknowledged she had pursued him, leaving notes for him on his computer or his desk where other people could not find them. ADA Debra Hutchins provided the witness with a note. She confirmed the handwriting was hers. Hutchins asked repeatedly, “Did he ever tell you this was inappropriate? Did he ever tell you to stop? Did he ever tell you to go away?” Each time, the victim replied that Lawrence had not. She told the jury about ing CITE were looking for open spaces. Brumley said his group scoured the country for potential sites, “but we kept coming back to New Mexico. New Mexico is unique in so many ways.”

The initial development cost is estimated at $400 million, although Brumley estimates the overall investment in the project to top $1 billion.

Joe Donnelly in the November general election. Within minutes of Lugar’s loss, Democrats were already painting Mourdock as too extreme for the state. Republicans need to gain four seats to take control of the U.S. Senate, and a Lugar loss “gives Democrats a pickup opportunity,” said Sen. Charles Schumer, D-N.Y. Playing out in a conservative state, the race illustrated the electorate’s animosity toward many incumbents and anyone with deep ties to Washington. That was clear when Lugar, who hasn’t faced questions about his residency in decades, found himself on the defensive over whether he lived in Indiana or northern Virginia. Lugar also was cast as too moderate for the conservative GOP in Indiana, and he took heat for his work with Democrats on issues such as nuclear nonproliferation, underscoring deep polarization in the country as well as a split in the GOP between the establishment wing and the insurgent tea party.

opposite direction from a string of states — Democratic-leaning places such as New York and Vermont as well as conservative Iowa — where same-sex marriage is now legal. Six states and Washington, D.C., now recognize gay unions. North Carolina law already bans gay marriage, but the amendment on the state ballot ef fectively slammed that door. In the days before the North Carolina vote, two top administration officials — Vice President Joe Biden and Education Secretary Arne Duncan — expressed support for gay marriage. Obama supports most gay rights but has stopped short of backing gay marriage. The Biden and Duncan comments sent the White House into damage-control mode as gay rights advocates pressed for him to publicly support of samesex unions before November.

Man pleads not guilty in Ohio in Navy charity scam CLEVELAND (AP) — A recently captured fugitive suspected of running a scam that collected up to $100 million in donations for U.S. Navy veterans pleaded not guilty Tuesday to state charges, and a judge wary that he might disappear again ordered him kept locked up. The man calls himself Bobby Thompson, though authorities don’t believe that’s his name but have been unable to identify him otherwise. The man was arrested last week in Portland, Ore., by U.S. marshals after nearly two years as a fugitive. Authorities believe he defrauded donors of up to $100 million in 41 states since 2001, including $2 million in Ohio. A fraction of the money has been found. Authorities say Thompson’s Tampa, Fla.-based charity, known as the U.S. Navy Veterans Asso-

of the United States.” Dexter Fire Chief Justin Powell had no comment. Councilor Thomas Mireles also did not wish to comment. “These are the people that are protecting our community from all the dangers of the fires and the accidents and things like that. My hat’s off to them for what they do. I’m just concerned about what happens before they start those engines. If we can cooperate on that then I think we can have a viable community,” White said in an interview after the meeting. White has been at odds with the councilors and Powell since he took office in March 2010. During a September 2011 meeting, the councilors voted to strip the mayor of his
ciation, made a few sporadic contributions that benefited veterans, but public records show the man behind it contributed hundreds of thousands of dollars to political candidates around the country. The charges against the man include racketeering, money laundering, identity theft, records tampering and theft. Thompson, dressed in an orange jail jumpsuit, sat with his manacled hands on his lap, smiling lightly when the prosecutor mentioned Thompson’s refusal to cooperate in identifying himself. Brad Tammaro, chief counsel to Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine, told the judge that Thompson was arrested with a suitcase full of phony IDs and apparently was planning to make more. Tammaro outlined Thompson’s cross-country travels, often with
only brief stops before moving elsewhere. “There is no reason for him to stay in this jurisdiction” if released pending trial, Tammaro said. Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Judge Hollie Gallagher agreed, refusing to set bond for him, meaning he’ll stay in jail. The judge said she was not satisfied he would appear in court if he’s released. The defense attorney, Mark Stanton, told the judge that Thompson wants to represent himself and have an attorney assist him. Stanton said he was willing to serve in that capacity. Authorities say they traced the name Bobby Thompson to a Choctaw who worked for the Bureau of Indian Affairs and wasn’t connected to the charity case. Authorities say he had his identity stolen, including his Social Security number and date of birth.
supervision duties of the Dexter Fire Department. Adding fuel to the fire, the mayor chose not to reappoint Town Clerk Kay Roberts and Police Chief Pete Montez in March. White said, Roberts’ “behavior is being monitored.” As for Montez, “I’ve been asking for him to cooperate with me by giving me infor mation throughout the years. That didn’t happen like it should.” Before the audit, the mayor said there were indications that these types of actions had been going on before. “I wasn't surprised so much as I didn’t know there were that many,” he said. The audit was completed by the office of De’Aun Willoughby, CPA, based in Melrose, and forwarded to the office of state auditor Hector Balderas. According to White, it was the state fire mar-
shal’s audit that tipped of f Willoughby to dig deeper. “When you have $12,000 or so of unauthorized expenditures, that should get everybody’s attention,” he said. Willoughby requested an extension from the Dec. 1 2011, due date to complete the audit, given its severity. Given the late audit, the town risks losing federal and state funding. “The council makes decisions tonight but the mayor is responsible for day-to-day operations. I’m hoping that we can highlight those things that have already been highlighted for us and try to find answers to them and then avoid them,” White said.

Gary Johnson deserves attention from the media
SANTA FE — Is Gary Johnson finally going to get some attention? The Republican establishment shut him out of the polls and debates last fall. Will being the nominee of the Libertarian Party make any difference now? It’s no slam dunk. Libertarians are seen as just short of weird. How can a political philosophy embrace both limited government and the legalization of pot? It’s really quite simple but in our current world of bi-polar political beliefs, no one wants to listen. Rep. Ron Paul tried to dish it out slowly and simply in the GOP debates but it was too bland as Republican leaders held their breath for fear the Libertarian would say something that they would have to spend the next year defending. Evidently Paul wanted to speak at this year’s convention and the 2008 convention, but Republicans wouldn’t hear of it. Johnson did not get that far, being closed out of the polls and the debates.
The road to getting on stage with President Obama and Mitt
JAY MILLER INSIDE THE CAPITOL
Romney will be even tougher. The rules say Johnson must consistently be poling 15 percent and be on enough November state ballots to have a mathematical chance of winning the presidency. The ballot qualification isn’t a problem. The Libertarian Party usually gets itself on all 50 state ballots. But 15 percent in the polls would be a miracle. Johnson is at about half that right now and the trend for third-party candidates is downward as election day approaches. Johnson does have some things
Roswell Daily Record
going for him however. He’s a former governor, which should increase his credibility. U.S. Rep. Bob Barr was the Libertarian candidate in 2008 and got only 0.4 percent of the vote but Barr was a loose cannon in Congress and didn’t bring much credibility with his candidacy. Gov. Johnson should attract tea party support with his record of more than 700 vetoes in eight years. One convention supporter bragged that Johnson vetoed more bills than Barry Bonds hit homeruns on steroids. Johnson has respect within the Libertarian Party even though he is a late comer. He easily won on the first ballot with 70 percent of the vote. Four years ago, it took six ballots to choose a candidate. Johnson could have had the nomination for the asking in 2000 when he was serving as governor and had just declared himself against the war on drugs. But Johnson hadn’t set his eye on the presidential goal at the time.
I figured any politician, who planned to climb Mt. Everest as soon as his term was over, would set his sights on something like the presidency soon after. At the time, I wrote a column predicting that Johnson and Bill Richardson both would run for president in 2008. Johnson suggested I had been smoking something funny. Richardson offered me a job. Johnson did the wise thing after winning his landslide nomination. He headed to New York, hoping on a slow news Sunday he could get some exposure. He has to hope he can be interesting enough to continue getting attention. The Libertarian message is intriguing but few are ready to listen. They prefer to hear their candidates make mountains out of molehills from some off-hand remark made by an opposing candidate. Libertarians, on the other hand, believe in the liberty of businesses and individuals to do what they
desire without government intrusion. Democrats and Republicans believe that too except when they disagree with the issue. Then they want government to make the act illegal. About the only places Johnson gets to talk that way is in speeches to the Johns Hopkins Center on advanced Governmental Studies and the University of California seminar on Liberty in Governance. Johnson is doing a much better job of presenting himself. The groups of dozens or hundreds he has been speaking to the past year have helped him fine tune a message and its presentation. He deserves a chance to demonstrate those skills. (Write to Jay Miller at 3 La Tusa, Santa Fe, NM 87505; by fax at 984-0982; or by e-mail at email@example.com)
The number of immigrants coming illegally to the United States has been declining for several years. Demographers have repeatedly said as much, and now a report by the Pew Hispanic Center confirms it — illegal migration from Mexico is virtually at a standstill. Last year, about 6.1 million Mexicans were illegally in the country, down from a high of 7 million in 2007. What accounts for the change after decades of steady increases? A declining birth rate and solid economic growth in Mexico have led fewer people to leave home. On this side of the border, a weak economy has made the U.S. less appealing for job seekers; and tougher border security has made the treacherous journey too expensive and dangerous for most, according to the report. ... The more pressing question now is what to do with the 11 million illegal immigrants from Mexico and elsewhere who are already here. Some Republicans want to redouble efforts to deport them; Mitt Romney has said he hopes they will “self-deport.” But such fantasies of a mass exodus are as unrealistic as the demand for a vacuumsealed border. The Obama administration is already detaining and deporting a record number of immigrants — nearly 400,000 annually. Besides, a real exodus would leave some sectors of the domestic economy struggling. Right now, more than half of all farmworkers in the U.S. are here illegally. Deporting them won’t push Americans into the fields. Just ask farmers in Alabama and other states that have enacted draconian measures who have found their crops rotting in the field because of labor shortages. Fixing immigration requires more than an enforcement-only strategy. Lawmakers must undertake a comprehensive approach that includes a path to legalization for those who are here, an agricultural worker program to help growers and farmhands, and strict workplace enforcement to discourage people from coming illegally in the future.

Heads I win, tails you lose! Issues in veterans’ continued care Roswell Daily Record
A small group of us old war horses were (once again) sitting around the old pickle barrel in the country store (okay, coffee machine at the Cowboy Café), and we were wondering why the number of veterans having problems seems to be on the rise. Even a member of Congress recently made a statement that is ringing true: “Washington (White House, Congress and the court system) hates veterans. They see us (veterans) as a huge pain in the—.” Being a veteran himself, he is frustrated at what he sees on a daily basis. The very ones who spout “God bless our veterans, we love them all” are the very ones not voting for needed legislation to fix a broken system, and who are actually pitting veterans against fellow veterans. Let’s take a quick look at only a few “instances” of those nasty things called facts! First, the court system is

history, leaving only stories handed down by word of mouth. One of the most poignant moments in the current series is when Condoleezza Rice learns about her great-grandmother, Julia Head. Through stories told by her family, Rice learned that Head was the child of a slave and a white slave owner. After a search of courthouse records in Greene County, Ala., Gates discovers documents that reveal Julia Head was just 4 years old when she was sold for $450. Shown the record of the sale, Rice soberly responds, “My greatgrandmother was worth $450 to Mr. Head. Yeah, dehumanization. Just property.” Conservatives should love this series because it shows that despite incredible odds that argued against success, the subjects Gates pro-

“sticking it to veterans” with a rampant surge of veteran spouses being allowed to take disabled veterans’ pensions and benefits in divorce settlements, even when spouses were found to have “partners” in the scam (waiting on the side) to make of f with the “booty.” It has been noted by several veteran advocates that unscrupulous lawyers and state/local judges are creating a financial windfall by awarding former spouses alimony from retired disabled veteran's disability compensation. This is wrong and in error, and in violation of Title 38. What
ever happened to the legal theory “property that is obtained before marriage is not divisible”? Disabled veterans receiving VA disability compensation, upon divorce, end up having a state court awarding the ex-spouse “free” U.S. taxpayer money to a person who had no prior connection, interest, dependency, or relationship before the marriage. Even though a number of schemes to take veterans’ disability pay and pension as “alimony,” or selling off personal property of veterans (medals, memorabilia, etc.) have been uncovered, it is being allowed by the courts! Second, the war over veterans receiving their pension as well as their disability compensation is still raging. The “plan” whereby disabled veterans could not receive both their disability compensation and their retirement pension started around 1956. Past Speaker of the House Denney
files overcame overwhelming obstacles to achieve something significant. Long before the birth of our entitlement generation, we held these kinds of role models up to young people. The message was, “If they could overcome, so can you.” That’s what Rice’s parents believed. On “Finding Your Roots,” Rice said her parents told her that even though she might not have been able to drink a soda at the local Woolworths segregated lunch counter in 1963, she could be president of the United States if she wished. She came close. In an age when we change homes and jobs many times during our lifetimes and families are broken up because of divorce and other factors, finding one’s roots is an important component to filling in ones family tree. Who am I? Why am I here? Where am I headed? These are all fundamental questions to which every human being, regardless of race,

Hastert (R—Ill.) called this “double-dipping.” What about Congressional “triple dipping” appropriations? Dr. David Chu, under secretary at DoD, was well known for his opposition to military retiree benefits as wasteful and detrimental to current DoD efforts.” The amounts have gotten to the point where they are hurtful. They are taking away from the nation’s ability to defend itself.” Veterans with 20 year retirements are able to get some of their pension, retroactive to 2003. Combat disabled retired soldiers (the most needy of our brothers and sisters) are only retroactive to 2008. This after 45-plus years of pension denied disabled veterans. See any discrepancy? Third, I ran a column last year about the government’s contractors Express Scripts and TriCare doing their best to force veterans to use the government’s phar macy plan

(early “Obama Care”) rather than private pharmacies. Last week I received a letter dated April 11, 2012, with the wonder ful news of changes coming to the pharmacy benefit. “Please review the important, money-saving insert included in this letter about a new copayment structure effective October 1, 2011.” First, the notice is six months late. Second, the medicines that the government’s pharmacy services are offering at a “tremendous discount” are the same medicines that the veterans are being charged the highest amount for when using a private pharmacy. The excuse being used by the gover nment contractors is, “these medicines are not on the government formulary.” Obviously, you can see the game being played by the government to get all veterans under their “umbrella.”
Fourth is reserved for several individual “zaps” to
veterans. One veteran was ordered to report to the Albuquerque VA for a comprehensive disability exam/ evaluation after he decided to choose a different plan than the gover nment’s decision on his CDRP. The exam would change nothing about his disability ratings, as they are well over 10 years old (protected under VA codes). Harassment appears the only motive. Another veteran (local) was denied reimbursement for his travel to Albuquerque VA by a financial clerk. “Your wife makes too much money.” Not valid! A majority of veterans having to drive over six hours for VA medical care would be denied reimbursement if this were true.
You would not believe the numbers of veterans who increasingly have these horror stories to tell. Political elections are coming folks. We need to make a (significant difference this time)! God bless.

SPORTS Roswell Daily Record
BAL TIMORE (AP) — Moments before he made history with his final swing in an incredible four-homer performance, Josh Hamilton stepped to the plate in the eighth inning with a surprising sense of calm. The Texas Rangers slugger had never before hit more than two home runs in a game, and he already had three. So as he took his place in the batter’s box against Baltimore righthander Darren O’Day, Hamilton already had a feeling of accomplishment. “I just went up like it was any other at-bat because if I don’t hit one,” Hamilton reasoned, “I’ve still had a really good night.” It turned out to be unforgettable. Hamilton became the 16th player to hit four home runs in a game, launching a quartet of tworun drives against three different pitchers to carry the Rangers to a 10-3 victory Tuesday. Hamilton homered of f Jake Arrieta in the first and third innings, added another off Zach Phillips in the seventh and topped it off with a one-for -the-books shot against O’Day. During the last at-bat, Hamilton took a mighty hack and missed, lined a foul into right-field seats and then
sent an 0-2 pitch over the center-field wall. “Obviously it’s, other than being in the World Series, the highlight of my big-league career,” Hamilton said. “I was saying after I hit two I’ve never hit three in a game before, and what a blessing that was. Then to hit four is just an awesome feeling, to see how excited my teammates got. “It reminds you of when you’re in Little League and a little kid, and just the excitement and why we play the game. Things like that. You never know what can happen. It was just an absolute blessing.” Hamilton also doubled in the fifth inning. His 18 total bases is a new single-game American League record, and his eight RBIs are a career high. “Amazing,” Rangers manager Ron Washington said. “Josh came out tonight, and he wasn’t going to be denied.” The last player to hit four home runs in a game was Carlos Delgado on Sept. 25, 2003, for Toronto against Tampa Bay. Two of the 16 players to hit four homers in a game did it before 1900. “History was witnessed tonight,” Washington said. “It’s like anything else — you do something good or
DENG, BOOZER LEAD BULLS PAST 76ERS, 77-69
CHICAGO (AP) — Luol Deng scored 24 points, Carlos Boozer added 19 points and 13 rebounds, and the Chicago Bulls beat the Philadelphia 76ers 7769 on Tuesday night to avoid a first-round playoff exit. The top-seeded Bulls finally won without point guard Derrick Rose, building a nine-point halftime lead and staying in control down the stretch to pull within 3-2. Game 6 is Thursday in Philadelphia. It’s been a brutal series for the Bulls, with Rose tearing the ACL in his left knee late in the opener and center Joakim Noah spraining his left ankle in Game 3. He sat out his second straight game, but Chicago refused to bow out quietly. Instead, the Bulls locked down the Sixers, holding them to a season-low 32.1 percent shooting.

Hawks stay alive
Atlanta’s Al Horford, rear, and Jeff Teague (0) hound Boston’s Paul Pierce during the Hawks’ win, Tuesday.
ATLANTA (AP) — Al Horford scored 19 points in his first start since January, and the Atlanta Hawks held on for an 87-86 victory over the Boston Celtics in a thrilling Game 5 of the Eastern Conference playoffs Tuesday night. The Celtics lead the series 3-2 heading back to Boston for Game 6 on Thursday. If the Hawks can steal one on the road, the deciding game would be Saturday in Atlanta.
Boston had a chance to clinch the series when Rajon Rondo stole Josh Smith’s inbounds pass with 10 seconds remaining, but he got hemmed in along the sideline and Smith knocked away a desperation pass. Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett led the Celtics with 16 points apiece. Rondo had 13 points and 12 assists. Smith had 13 points and 16 boards, Jeff Teague had 16 points, and Joe Johnson and Marvin Williams had 15.
Texas’ Josh Hamilton connects for a two-run home run in the eighth inning of the Rangers’ win over the Orioles, Tuesday. Hamilton tied the MLB record for home runs in a game with four during his team’s 10-3 victory. something incredible happens, it takes a little bit for it to sink in,” Hamilton said. “I think when I get away from everybody and I have some time to myself, I think it might then.” Hamilton is the sixth AL player to perform the feat. The last to hit four homers in a game against the Orioles was Rocky Colavito in 1959, at old Memorial Sta-
dium. “He’s the best athlete in baseball,” teammate Nelson Cruz said of Hamilton. “If anybody can do it, he can do it.” Elvis Andrus got on base ahead of Hamilton in each instance, said, “He kept hitting bombs and bombs. It feels really good because I don’t have to run that hard to score.”
Hamilton, who is in the final year of his contract and could become a free agent after this season, leads the AL with 14 homers and 36 RBIs, and his 5-for-5 effort raised his batting average to .406. He also set the Texas single-game club record with five extra-base hits, breaking the mark of four held by eight players.
Pacers eliminate Magic
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Danny Granger scored 25 points to help the Indiana Pacers defeat the Orlando Magic 105-87 on Tuesday night and clinch their firstround Eastern Conference playoff series 4-1. It was Indiana’s first series win since 2005 and its first clincher on its home court since the first round of the 2000 playoffs. The Pacers will play Miami or New York in the second round. Darren Collison scored 15 of his 19 points in the fourth quarter and George Hill added 15 points for the Pacers, who trailed by two at the end of the third quarter but outscored the Magic 36-16 in the final 12 minutes. Jameer Nelson led Orlando with 27 points and made 5 of 8 3-pointers. Glen Davis, a thorn in Indiana’s side throughout the series, scored 15 but made just 6 of 17 shots. The Magic made just 5 of 16 shots in the fourth quarter. Collison made a layup and hit a 3-pointer to give the Pacers a 78-73 lead with 9:33 to play. After Nelson drained another 3, Collison came back with a

Key Penn State witness seeks whistle-blower suit
HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — The Penn State football assistant whose report of Jerry Sandusky allegedly attacking a child in the showers led to Joe Paterno’s firing said in a court filing Tuesday that he is suing the school. The “writ of summons” filed by Mike McQueary’s lawyer described it as a whistleblower case, but the brief document was not accompanied by a full complaint that would lay out the allegations. The filing was first reported by the Centre Daily Times on its website. McQueary’s attorney, Elliott Strokoff of Harrisburg, did not respond to a phone message at his office late Tuesday. His father, John McQueary, declined to comment on his behalf. McQueary, then a graduate assistant, has said he complained to Paterno of seeing the boy in a locker room shower naked with Sandusky. He testified in December that he believed Sandusky was molesting the boy and “having some type of sexual intercourse with him,” but added he was not “100 percent” certain they were having intercourse because of his vantage point. Penn State’s trustees have said they fired Paterno as coach partly because of his response to the incident. Paterno reported the matter to administrators Gary Schultz and Tim Curley, which trustees have called “his minimum legal duty” and “a failure of leadership.” Paterno was fired as coach in November and died in January of lung cancer. McQueary, who was a receivers coach, was placed on paid administrative leave by the school after the three men were arrested in November. All three have pleaded not guilty. Penn State spokesman Dave La Torre said school officials were unable to comment because they had not seen the complaint. Pennsylvania prosecutors said Monday they now believe the alleged shower assault took place a year earlier than they first claimed. The attorney general’s office said in a court filing that investigators concluded the alleged attack took place around Feb. 9, 2001. Previously filed court documents, including a grand jury report issued before Sandusky’s arrest dated it March 1, 2002.

Minn. Senate eyes user fees for Vikings stadium
ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — The Minnesota Senate pushed more Vikings stadium financing costs in the direction of the team and fans Tuesday as supporters grasped for extra votes to keep the proposal alive. Ahead of a critical vote on the nearly $1 billion facility, senators revamped a longstanding stadium plan to impose a collection of user fees while also increasing the upfront private contribution by $25 million. Passage by the Senate would set up final negotiations and precede a new round of votes by the Legislature. The House approved a bill Monday that requires the team to kick in $532 million toward the stadium — $105 million above what a franchise official previously called a “set in stone” ceiling. It was clear stadium supporters wanted to turn to offense rather than defense as the bill reached the Senate. It was Sen. Julie Rosen, the stadium bill sponsor, who promoted user fees on suites, parking and Vikings merchandise. Another backer pushed for the higher team contribution, and that amendment was approved unanimously. The user fee amendment — adopted on a 40-26 vote — would levy a 10 percent fee on suites and on parking within a half-mile of the stadium, and impose a 6.875 percent fee on Vikings clothing, trading cards and other memorabilia. Throughout a debate that stretched from early afternoon past nightfall, there were plenty of close calls. Senators twice approved amendments they overturned later. One would have imposed a more aggressive slate of user fees that could cut into Vikings profits and a second would have subjected portions of the bill to a potential Minneapolis voter referendum. Sen. Dave Thompson, R-Lakeville, said the deal to date has been negotiated by people too willing to please the team. “When stadium proponents are putting things on that make the deal less appealing to the Vikings, you wonder if it’s been put on just for the purpose of attracting votes and then getting pulled out in conference committee,” said Thompson, the leader of the conservative faction within the Senate GOP caucus. “But I guess time will tell.” Earlier Tuesday, a Vikings executive warned state lawmakers against making major changes to the financing proposal, saying they risked losing the team’s support for the deal. Vice President Lester Bagley criticized changes made by the House when it passed the bill Monday, particularly a provision that shifted more cost from the state to the team. “People who are opposed to this are going to do all they can to muck this up,” Bagley said in an interview on ESPN 1500 radio, speaking generally about amendments added to the bill. Bagley pointed to a bill for a new Twins ballpark that cleared the Legislature in 2002, only to fall apart later. It took the team another four years to win legislative support for a workable bill. Bagley didn’t immediately return a call from The Associated Press. Though the Vikings have misgivings about the changes the House made to the bill, its approval Monday marked the team’s first victory in its years-long quest for a new stadium. Bagley called it “the first hurdle” in a process.

US sends airport security guide to other countries WASHINGTON (AP) — In the wake of a terrorist bomb plot disrupted by the CIA, the U.S. advised some inter national airports and air carriers Tuesday about security measures for passengers traveling to the U.S. The guidance from the Transportation Security Administration was a reminder of methods the U.S. provided to these international airports and carriers in the past six to eight months to help protect against threats from liquid explosives and explosives hidden inside a person’s body or clothes or in printer cartridges. All are methods officials said al-Qaida’s spinoff group in Yemen has considered for plots against the U.S, according to an American official who spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss the details of the guidance. The CIA recently foiled a bomb plot in Yemen in which officials say a suicide bomber was to have detonated an explosive on a U.S.-bound flight. “The seizure of this device is a reminder that our adversaries continue to be interested in targeting the aviation sector,”
Homeland Security spokesman Matt Chandler said Tuesday afternoon. Chandler said the government issued the guidance reminder “to underscore the importance of these ongoing measures to air carriers and foreign gover nment partners.” He said there is currently no credible or specific information about a terror threat to the U.S. Despite the discovery of a sophisticated new alQaida airline bomb plot, congressional and security officials suggested there was no immediate need to change airport security procedures, which already subject many shoeless passengers to pat-downs and body scans. The CIA, with help from a well-placed informant and foreign intelligence services, conducted a covert operation in Yemen in recent weeks that disrupted a nascent suicide plot and recovered a new bomb, U.S. officials said. They said the bomb represented an upgrade over the underwear bomb that failed to detonate aboard a jetliner over Detroit on Christmas Day 2009. The new bomb was also designed to be used in a
Wednesday, May 9, 2012
It’s not clear who built the bomb, but because of its sophistication and its similarity to the Christmas Day bomb, authorities suspect it was the work of master bomb maker Ibrahim Hassan al-Asiri or one of his students. AlAsiri constructed the first underwear bomb and two others that al-Qaida built into printer cartridges and shipped to the U.S. on cargo planes in 2010. Both of those bombs used a powerful industrial explosive. Both were nearly successful. But the group has also suffered significant setbacks as the CIA and the U.S. military focus more on Yemen. On Sunday, Fahd al-Quso, a senior alQaida leader, was killed by a missile as he stepped out of his vehicle along with another operative in the souther n Shabwa province of Yemen. Al-Quso, 37, was on the FBI’s most wanted list, with a $5 million reward for information leading to his capture. He was indicted in the U.S. for his role in the 2000 bombing of the USS Cole in the harbor of Aden, Yemen, in which 17 American sailors were killed and 39 injured.
Airport security procedures, with their intrusive pat downs and body scans, don’t need to be toughened despite the discovery of a new al-Qaida airline bomb plot using more sophisticated technology than an earlier attempt, congressional and security officials said Tuesday.
passenger’s underwear, but this time al-Qaida developed a more refined detonation system. FBI experts are picking apart that non-metallic device to see if it could have slipped through security and taken down an airplane. U.S. officials sought to reassure the public that security measures at airports are strong. They said there are no immediate plans to subject airline
passengers to new security screenings. “I think people getting on a plane today should feel confident that their intelligence services are working, day in and day out,” John Brennan, the top counterterrorism adviser to President Barack Obama, said on ABC’s “Good Mor ning America.” Though analysis of the device is incomplete, U.S. security officials said they
Both parties know full well that they will need a bipartisan pact on financing the measure. They are both motivated to strike such an agreement because in the months before this November’s presidential and congressional elections, neither wants to be blamed for letting college costs grow for students and their families struggling in today’s weak economy. But before they strike a compromise — which both parties believe will happen before July 1 — both were eager to use the debate to score partisan points. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky.,
said Democrats were forcing that vote as “a way to drive a wedge between Republicans and a constituency that they’re looking to court ahead of November’s elections. That’s what today’s vote is all about for them.” Reid said he might be willing to allow a vote on the GOP bill. But he also criticized Republicans for opposing the Democratic plan. “They’re sending a clear message that they’d rather wealthy tax protect dodgers, and that’s what they are, than help promising students achieve their dreams of higher education,” Reid said.
remained confident in the security systems that are in place. “These layers include threat and vulnerability analysis, prescreening and screening of passengers, using the best available technology, random searches at airports, federal air marshal coverage and additional security measures both seen and unseen,” Homeland Security spokesman Matthew Chandler said.
GOP blocks Senate debate on Dem student loan bill
WASHINGTON (AP) — Republicans Senate derailed a Democratic bill on Tuesday that would keep interest rates on federal college loans from doubling July 1 in an election-year battle aimed at the hearts — and votes — of millions of students and their parents. Republicans said they favor preventing the interest rate increase but blocked the Senate from debating the $6 billion measure because they oppose how Democrats would pay for it: boosting Social Security and Medicare payroll taxes on high-earning stockholders of some privately owned

corporations. Tuesday’s vote was 52-45 in favor of starting debate on the Democratic legislation — eight votes shy of the 60 needed. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., was the only one to defect his party’s position, a procedural move that will allow him to hold the vote again should the two sides work out a deal later. The measure would extend today’s 3.4 percent interest rate on subsidized Stafford loans for another year. Those rates would grow to 6.8 percent without congressional action, thanks to a 2007 law that gradually lowered those rates but expires on July 1.

haul. Subsidized Stafford loans are for low- and middleincome students. The higher rates, should they occur, would only affect students taking out new loans starting July 1. The Education Department estimates 7.4 million students will borrow $31.6 billion in such loans in the year beginning July 1, averaging $4,226 for each student. These loans generally are paid off over a decade or more after graduation. Allowing interest rates to double would cost the typical student about $1,000 over the life of the loan, the administration says.
The fight over student loans has become a highprofile, symbolic tussle over which party wants to do more for Americans scrounging to get by at a time jobs are hard to find, and each side is happy to force the other to take embarrassing votes. With both parties focused on this November’s presidential and congressional elections, it is no coincidence they each have chosen to pay for their bill with a favorite target that they believe speaks to their core voters: Democrats going after higher revenues from the rich, Republicans trying to punch a hole in Obama’s health care over-

columns. ANITA B. IN NEW JERSEY
DEAR ANITA: You are welcome. It’s hard for me to choose just one recipe because I have a notorious sweet tooth, and my cookbooklets contain more than a few that I have enjoyed many times. However, because you asked for my personal favorite, it would be one that not only I have enjoyed, but also one I have made for friends as gifts — Regency Brownies With Chocolate Frosting. (Because the recipe yields 41⁄2 dozen, I confess I usually keep the “extra” six to munch on myself.)
UNIVERSAL PRESS SYNDICATE
DEAR ABBY: I have heard that your dessert recipes are fabulous and I’d like to have them. I saw a column in which you mentioned your cookbooklets. I hope I’m correct about this, because I’d be interested in getting them. I have your booklet of poems and essays, which I have read and enjoyed many times. Would you print your personal favorite dessert recipe and let me know how to get your cookbooklets? Warmest wishes to you, Abby, and thank you for all your

1 teaspoon vanilla FROSTING 1 cup heavy cream 8 ounces bittersweet chocolate, finely chopped Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line the bottom of an 18-by12-by-2 (or 1)-inch baking pan with baking parchment paper and spray generously with butter-flavored cooking spray. In the top of a double boiler, over medium heat, melt butter and 4 ounces chocolate. Reserve. In a large bowl, beat sugar and eggs until fluffy. Add flour and salt, mixing well. Add chocolate mixture, blending thoroughly. Stir in nuts and vanilla. Pour into prepared baking pan. (Batter should be about 1⁄2 inch thick, NOT MORE.) Bake for 35 to 40 minutes, or until top is crisp and toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool before pouring frosting over the top.

Dear Reader: Thank you for writing. My mother, the original Heloise (19191977), made these tasty treats using canned salmon. She did suggest that if you’re on a tight budget, you can substitute tuna. Here’s the recipe for Heloise’s Salmonettes. They are easy to make and taste great, too! You need the following:
1 can of salmon or tuna (14 ounces) 1⁄4 cup reserved liquid from the salmon or tuna 1 egg, lightly beaten 1⁄2 cup flour Pepper (optional, to taste) 1 heaping teaspoon baking powder Fill a deep fryer or skillet halffull of oil and preheat while assembling the salmonettes. Drain all but 1⁄4 cup of the liquid off the canned fish and set aside. Place fish in a mixing bowl and break apart with a fork. A little at a time, add egg, flour and pepper. Mix well but do not overmix. Add the baking powder to the reserved liquid and beat with a whisk or fork until frothy. IMMEDIATELY add it to the fish mixture and stir to blend — do not let it sit after mixing. Drop the mixture off iced-tea spoons into the hot oil. Keep an eye on them, because it won’t take long until they are browned. Drain on a paper towel and then serve! Unfortunately, this is a recipe that you cannot make ahead of time and then cook. You have to fry them as soon as you mix them. Enjoy! Heloise ##### SEND A GREAT HINT TO: Heloise P.O. Box 795000 San Antonio, TX 78279-5000 Fax: 210-HELOISE Email: Heloise(at)Heloise.com
Dear Readers: I love celery stuffed with peanut butter or cream cheese as a snack. It also is an ingredient in numerous recipes. However, most folks cut off the leaves and throw them away! STOP! DON’T! The leaves contain the most vitamin C, calcium and potassium of the entire plant. The leaves can be used like parsley when seasoning dishes. They also can be mixed with other greens to make salad. So, don’t toss those leaves. Use within a day or two, because they won’t keep for long! Heloise #####
The Wizard of Id
Dear Heloise: Sometimes I am in the mood for an eggroll out of the freezer. I am usually not patient enough to wait for them to cook. In the microwave, they aren’t crunchy like they are right out of the oven. I put the heated eggroll in a hard taco shell. I get the crunch I want in two minutes instead of 30. Kevin C., via email

photo by Cecil Beaton, ÂŠ V&A Images
Have you ever dreamed of being a king or a queen? This year is a particularly special one for the queen of England. On June 2 through 5, Queen Elizabeth II will celebrate her Diamond Jubilee in honor of her 60 years as queen. This week, we learn more about the queen, her family, and some of the many responsibilities she has.
In early 1952, when Princess Elizabeth was only 25 years old, her father, King George VI, died. She immediately became the queen, but the coronation, or ceremony, was held more than a year later, in June 1953. Her crown was made in 1661 for the coronation of King Charles II.

What are all those Vâ€™s and Iâ€™s?
What does a queen do?
An unexpected king Queen Elizabethâ€™s father, Albert, was the Duke of York. He was second in line to become king after his older brother, Edward, Prince of Wales. When Elizabethâ€™s grandfather, King George V, died in 1936, Edward became King Edward VIII. But Edward, who wasnâ€™t married, King George VI, wanted to marry an Elizabethâ€™s father American who had been divorced. According to the rules of the Church of England at that time, a man couldnâ€™t marry a woman whose ex-husband was still living. So Edward gave up the crown, and his brother Albert became King George VI.
The new queen had to immediately take over all the duties her father had performed. She became Queen Elizabeth II.* The queen is the monarch, or head of state, of 16 realms. A realm (rehlm) is a country led by a king or queen. The 16 realms are: s 0APUA .EW 'UINEA s 3T #HRISTOPHER and Nevis s 3T 6INCENT AND THE Grenadines s 4UVALU s "ARBADOS s 'RENADA s 3OLOMON )SLANDS s 3T ,UCIA s "AHAMAS
