ALBUQUERQUE(AP) — Georgia O’Keeffe could handle the inhospitable conditions of the American Southwest, with its intense sun and rugged terrain.

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — C.J. Wilson really wanted to pitch against the Texas Rangers, so much so that he became the first major leaguer in 11 seasons to start consecutive games. After the rain-interrupted series opener when he faced only five batters against his former team, Wilson worked into the sixth inning Saturday to lead the Los Angeles Angels to a 4-2 win over Texas. - PAGE B1

‘Art is all about expressing yourself’; Celebrate! Gov. Susana Martinez congratulates a NMMI honor grad during commencement ceremonies, Saturday morning.


A child’s work of art at the Roswell Convention and Civic Center Saturday stated the spirit of the day’s event best, as it proclaimed: “Welcome to Paulina’s Art Studio.” With a school year’s-worth of children’s artwork on display and art instructors ready to guide children to create on the spot, the Creative Learning Center hosted the sixth annual Celebrate the Arts Day. Panels that featured children’s artwork from haikus to raku, from flipbooks to watercolors, seemed to share Paulina’s warm invitation to relax and enjoy the art. “Art is all about expressing yourself,” said 11-year-old Mikaela Graham. The fifth-grader who attends Valley View Elementary got the chance not only to share her flipbook — a book with the drawing of a ball on its pages that, when flipped quickly, makes it look like it’s bouncing — but also her ability to play the recorder, an instrument she proudly keeps in its case, snug in her pocket.

“It’s a really good time for everyone to get together, meet your friends, express yourself, and just hang out,” Graham said of the event. CLC Director Mona Kirk said the event showcases the art created by Roswell children from kindergarten through sixth-grade. The art was created with the guidance of CLC instructors who visit area schools every week during the school year. The CLC has 10 teachers, Kirk said, two per grade levels 1-5 so that one may teach performing arts and the other, visual arts. All CLC teachers instruct kindergarten, Kirk said, while sixth-graders produce raku in the Raku-to-Go program. Raku, or raku ware, is a form of Japanese pottery. The Celebrate the Arts event was a culmination of the best work produced by students. Even the raku ware created through a partnership with the Roswell Museum and Art Center and the Pecos Valley Potters Guild found a place toward the entrance of the Civic Center’s banquet hall. “We invite the public to come out

LYNCHBURG, Va. (AP) — Mitt Romney’s Mor mon faith has shaped his life, but he barely mentioned it as he spoke to graduates at an evangelical university Saturday. And he hardly touched on hot-button social issues like abortion and gay marriage, instead of fering a broad-based defense of values like family and hard work.

New Mexico Military Institute held its 118th commencement program Saturday at Pearson Auditorium, issuing diplomas to about 200 high school and junior college graduates. Gov. Susana Martinez was guest speaker at the ceremony, and talked about the unique history and traditions of the school. Addressing the graduates, Martinez praised the Institute’s system of instruction, where the responsibility of teaching and training new cadets rests solely on the old cadets. She said she believes this structure makes NMMI a school for other institutions to follow. “Within this structured environment of discipline,

Growth seen in NM white supremacist prison gangs

ALBUQUERQUE (AP) — New Mexico’s prisons have seen a rise in white supremacist gang membership as some inmates seek protection against largely Hispanic gangs, according to state officials.

State numbers show that membership in white supremacist gangs has doubled in prisons during the past 10 years, and state of ficials worry the numbers may keep climbing.

“Membership is increasing in white supremacist gangs affiliated with those in Texas and Arizona,” said Santistevan, Dwayne administrator of New Mexico’s Security Threat Intelligence Unit. “We think they’re banding together for protection against Hispanic gangs.”

The state estimates there are about 160 inmates connected to white supremacist gangs like the Aryan Brotherhood and Nazi Low Riders. Ten years ago, New Mexico prisons had only around 60 to 70 members connected to such gangs, Santistevan said. “The gangs are getting their membership from inmates from Farmington, Carlsbad, Ruidoso and Alamogordo,” he said. “It’s kind of puzzling.” Santistevan said at least two Hispanic inmates had been identified as belonging to a white supremacist gang. Prison officials can easily identify members of such gangs through tattoos of swastikas, Hitler’s birthdate and other racist symbols.

Still, white supremacist gang membership is small compared to the overall gang population in New Mexico prisons. Of the 6,500 inmates in those lockups, 40 percent are connected to mainly Latino gangs. Officials worry the growing presence of white supremacist gangs could spark further violence in prisons among gangs already battling over turf, drugs and weapons trafficking. This week, Santistevan and officials with the New Mexico Gang Task presented details of white supremacist gangs to hundreds of law enforcement officers at a conference on combating gang violence in the state. The FBI says New Mexico has one of the nation’s highest rates of gang members per 1,000 residents. The state also has one of the highest rates of gang members to law enforcement officers in the nation, behind only California and Illinois.

NMSU OKs budget cuts, fractional grading

LAS CRUCES (AP) — Spending across the New Mexico State University system will drop around 2 percent next year and the system will see a new grading structure.

John Eric Lerma, 20, is wanted on charges of breaking and entering, two counts of probation violation, failure to comply and failure to appear. He is described as 5 feet 10 inches tall, weight 185, with black hair and brown eyes. Anyone who has information about Lerma’s whereabouts is asked to contact Crime Stoppers 1-888-594-TIPS (8477).

ROAD CLOSURE THIS WEEK South Atkinson will be closed between Brasher and East Poe from Tuesday through Friday, weather permitting. The purpose of the closure is


for excavation and repair work on a roadway failure. Motorists are advised to use caution, seek alternate routes and observe traffic signs.

The Las Cruces Sun-News reports that NMSU regents approved Friday a new budget that cuts spending by about $626 million, and also approved a new “fractional grading scale,” which provides for plus and minus grades between C-plus and A-minus. The budget will be buoyed by a student tuition increase and an increase in stateissued dollars in the coming year.

Alarm systems in homes rise The number of alar m systems people are putting into their homes are on the rise, according to Richard Lucero, the city’s alar m administrator. “People are concer ned about their property and families and more of them are installing alarm systems to protect themselves. There have been 572 new alarm permits in Roswell in the past 12 months alone,” he said. This is reflected in an increase in false alarms. He explained that people need to remember there is also a level of responsibility that the alar m user must accept. “It’s important to understand that it is not the police of ficer’s legal responsibility to check alarm activations. Many cities throughout the United States do not send their officers to check alarm activations anymore,” Lucero said. He noted that Roswell police officers continue to check alarm activations. The safety of the citizens is paramount. However, the city requires that alar m users obtain a policeresponse permit in order to have the police check their alarm activations. It is a violation of city ordinance to operate an alar m system without a valid alar m registration issued by the city. When an alarm user sends the police to an unregistered location

to check an alarm and the officer determines that the activation was a false alarm, the alarm user will face a $50 fine and possible suspension of any further police response. Lucero said that a false alarm is defined as an alarm activation that was not caused by criminal activity. False alarms waste police resources and time. “It is no secret that the Roswell Police Department is understaffed. We need to ensure that the Roswell Police continue to check our alarm activations by working hard to reduce the number of false alar ms they have to respond to.” Lucero encourages alarm users to always send the police to check the alarm activations when the user does not know what activated the alarm and only cancel the police when the activation is an obvious false alarm. “The citizen’s safety is still the Roswell Police Department’s number one concern.” He recommends that people become familiar with their system and if they realize an alar m is false, to turn it off. “Each alarm location is unique and there are dif ferent solutions available to fit their situations.” Lucero pointed out that the alarm permit system has reduced the number of police responses to false

alar ms from more than 5,000 in 2000, to just fewer than 2,000 in 2011. For locations with policeresponse permits, the city will allow two false alarm responses by the police department without fines. The third false alarm within a 12-month period will result in a $50 fine, and any additional false alarms will cost the alar m user $100 per police response. “If anyone recently purchased an alarm system, the alar m user must ensure that they are properly trained in the operation of the system. They must not let the alar m technician leave if they have any questions about the system.” Lucero said. Most false alar ms will occur within the first few weeks after the new systems are installed. “I suggest that the alarm user consider a one- or twoweek training period where the alarm system is fully operational, but the police of ficers are not dispatched,” he said. “Thousands of dollars in fines could have been avoided if the alarm holder used the training period.” To obtain a policeresponse per mit or for infor mation about the alar m ordinance and reducing false alarms, call Richard Lucero at 6246770 extension 118, or 420-1369.

Georgia O’Keeffe NM teens find possible Museum curator resigns 900-year-old artifact SANTA FE (AP) — Few people in the world know as much about the life and art of Georgia O’Keeffe as Barbara Buhler Lynes, who resigned Friday after years as curator and director of the research center at the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum in Santa Fe. Museum of ficials declined to say why Lynes stepped down, and Lynes could not immediately be reached for comment. L ynes said in a statement issued by the museum that she enjoyed her time there and leaves with deep admiration for the director, staf f and board members. “Serving the museum has been an illuminating experience, and I look forward to pursuing new projects and opportunities,” she said. L ynes’ resignation came on opening day of a new exhibit that highlights the importance of O’Keeffe’s camping and rafting trips through the Southwest and the inspiration the treks provided for her art. For more than a decade, L ynes was the driving force behind more than 30 of the museum’s

The museum is the largest single repository of O’Keeffe’s work in the world. Its collection is made up of more than 3,000 works, including 1,149 O’Keeffe paintings, drawings and sculptures that date from 1901 to 1984, the year O’Keeffe was forced into retirement due to failing eyesight. O’Keeffe is best known for her iconic flower paintings and color ful landscapes. The museum has a wealth of materials from the artist’s estate. At the time of her death in 1986, O’Keeffe’s two homes in northern New Mexico and most everything in them were set aside for preservation. That included her clothes, paint brushes, paint chips with notes jotted on the back, sketch books, canvases and hundreds of rocks and bleached animal bones

L ynes and Agapita Judy Lopez, the museum’s director of historic properties, recently completed a book about the artist’s two adobe homes.

Lynes told The Associated Press in previous interviews that despite her intimate knowledge of O’Keef fe, she lear ned something new about the artist with each exhibition she put together. Lynes also put together a prize-winning, two-volume catalog that documents and authenticates O’Keeffe’s extensive body of work. The publication was a project of the National Gallery of Art and the now dissolved Georgia O’Keeffe Foundation.

Anne Marion, founder and chair man of the museum’s board, described L ynes’ contributions to the museum and art community as “enormous.”

The museum said it is planning to conduct a national search for a new curator.

ALBUQUERQUE (AP) — A group of New Mexico seventh-graders have found could be one of the most significant archaeological discoveries in a while. Seventh-graders from Sandia Prep discovered a Native American pot, about 18 inches high and 14 to 16 inches wide and possibly 900 years old, while on a field trip last month in Cibola County. “It was like a gray pot, with zig-zag stripes and dash patterns all the way going around it,” seventhgrader Isabel Jerome told KOAT-TV. “Yeah, it was a really incredible find.” State of ficials aren’t revealing the artifact until they consult nearby pueblos. Teachers immediately contacted U.S. National Park Service representatives who then contacted the Bureau of Land Management. This week, BLM archaeologists removed the pot. They estimate the age to be 800 to 1,000 years old because of clues from the pot: size, shape and design on the pot, and comparisons to other artifacts already dated. “None of this is an exact science, but BLM

archaeologists are telling me, when finding a pottery shard, it’s hard to determine because of its small size and not being intact,” Stephen Baker, BLM public affairs, told the Gallup Independent. “Because the pot is nearly intact we get a lot of clues and because of other archaeological studies that have been done, can look at it and determine what research tells them, and can estimate its place in history.” The last significant discovery on New Mexico Bureau of Land Management land was a decade ago. Anthony Schoepke, a computer and filmmaking teacher at Sandia Prep Middle/ High School and one of the three who discovered the pot, said it was found while 75 seventh-grade students from the school, including some Polish seventhgraders on an exchange trip, were exploring caves. The field trip was part of the Outdoor Leadership program at the school. “One of the teachers was showing a light and it caught something bright near the floor, I looked down and it was this pot underneath a bunch of

rocks,” he told the Gallup Independent. “One of the parents on the trip had a lot of knowledge of the artifact law and Native American pots and we all agreed not to touch it, or try to remove it, and to notify authorities.”

Schoepke described the pot as being cream colored with a complicated design of diagonal lines in either black or dark brown.

Donna Hummel of the BLM said the find could be unique and the students may not fully understand its importance. “This is very significant. We hope they appreciate that this could be a once in a lifetime discovery,” said Humme.

Will GOP beat itself again in New Mexico? A4 Sunday, May 13, 2012

SANTA FE — Now’s the time for all the stops to come out. There’s two weeks left in the 2012 political primaries. If you’re going to do something, do it now. Admittedly, there aren’t many hot primary races. Our pitiful redistricting process puts both Republican and Democratic incumbents in districts as safe as can possibly be justified by the rules. This means having uninteresting primaries and even less interesting general election campaigns. And there’s no way to fix it in New Mexico. Some states allow voters to rebel and put their own ideas out for public vote. Those states have independent redistricting commissions, which make districts as competitive as possible. But Congress was afraid that Wild West New Mexicans couldn’t be trusted so the elites were put in permanent control — and we always will be under their control. Since politics is a very dirty business, even well-designed





plans, such as the redistricting plan in Arizona, is being subverted by a governor and legislature who don’t like what is fair and are making illegal moves to subvert the redistricting. In New Mexico’s few contested primaries, we do find some rather good battles. Democrats are fighting over Speaker Ben Lujan’s coveted seat. Current Santa Fe Mayor David Coss is one of the combatants. Senate Majority Floor Leader Michael Sanchez is being opposed by Rep. David Chavez in a Democratic primary. Chavez said just before declaring his senatorial candidacy that his law practice was so

good that he was leaving the Legislature. Why the sudden change of heart? Several sources report that Gov. Susana Martinez wants Sanchez out because he has sunk much of her priority legislation, such as not allowing driver’s licenses for illegal aliens. It also is reported that political consultant Jay McCleskey is the driving force behind anything Gov. Martinez does politically. McCleskey’s influence also goes further than pitting Republicans against Democrats or Democrats against Democrats. It even extends to pitting Republicans against Republicans. Last month, it was reported that Martinez and McCleskey were trying to unseat Senate Republican leader Stuart Ingle for not having fought hard enough to get Martinez’s legislation through the Senate. That didn’t work well. Ingle is highly respected by both sides in the Senate. Then it was reported that Sen.

Clint Harden of Clovis had been pressured into retiring. Harden is a nice, affable guy but that may not have fit into the Republican game plan for taking the Senate or at least getting priority legislation passed. Angie Spears, the niece of Public Regulation Commission Chairman Pat Lyons immediately announced for the seat and was endorsed by Gov. Martinez. But then Republican businessmen Pat Woods and Mark Myers protested that the seat should be open to anyone interested and not to just the GOP establishment. Gov. Martinez countered that she merely was endorsing the first person to announce for the seat. That did not satisfy Woods and Myers. Myers then dropped out and threw his support to Woods, saying they’d fight the establishment together. Back in the 1970s, southern Democrats at the state and national level began heading toward the Republican Party, in what was

then called Richard Nixon’s southern strategy. In New Mexico, it began as coalitions, first to take over the state House, then Senate. Later, Republican legislators began changing parties, first in the House, then in the Senate. Republicans and a group of opportunistic Democrats ran the House for most of the 1970s and ’80s. The Senate finally got its stuff together in the ’80s. But it didn’t last very long before three disgruntled Republicans didn’t feel they got a fair shake in the coup and went over to the Democratic side. Then came the 1988 elections, when George H.W. Bush handily won the presidency but New Mexico Democrats just as handily took back the Senate. Will we see a repeat of that GOP overreach this year or will things mellow out?

Health care fraud

News coverage of last week’s simultaneous arrests of 107 people in seven cities for alleged health care fraud pretty much appeared and disappeared in a day, at least outside Miami, Baton Rouge, Houston, Los Angeles, Detroit, Tampa and Chicago, the cities involved. Behind the headlines, however, is a little-noticed law enforcement program that has focused exclusively on health care fraud, waste and abuse for 15 years. Given the fashionable reflex to blame government for everything, it’s worth taking special note of a joint federal, state and local collaboration that so far has recovered and returned more than $20 billion of taxpayer money to the Medicare Trust Funds and additional funds to other health care programs. The indictments underpinning last week’s operation by multiple federal, state and local agencies allege some $450 million in false Medicare billings, more than any other single enforcement action to date. In addition to handling the arrests, more than 500 agents of a special Medicare Fraud Strike Force also suspended the Medicare participation rights of 52 health care providers and executed an additional 20 search warrants connected with other ongoing investigations. The strike force, which is jointly supervised by the U.S. Departments of Justice and Health & Human Services, operates through the authority of the Health Care Fraud and Abuse Control Program originally created by Congress in the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996. According to a description released by HHS, the charges against those arrested in last week’s seven-city operation were based on “a variety of alleged fraud schemes involving various medical treatments and services such as home health care, mental health services, psychotherapy, physical and occupational therapy, durable medical equipment and ambulance services.” There were bills submitted for medical services that weren’t needed and bills for services that were never provided, as well as kickbacks paid for Medicare beneficiary information used in submitting the bills. Those arrested deserve fair trials and, if convicted, license revocations and prison time. Contrary to the tired racial and class stereotypes of high-living welfare queens and other supposed cheats, health care fraud strike force investigators — working in the real world — find large-scale fraud where the large-scale money is: on the provider side, not the consumer side. Last week’s indictments and supporting court documents named owners of health care companies and ambulance companies, doctors, nurses, licensed social workers, physical and psychological therapists and a pharmacist. The annual report on the Health Care Fraud and Abuse Control Program, released in February, charted some $4.1 billion collected through criminal and civil enforcement actions and deposited in the Medicare Trust Funds and the U.S. Treasury and transferred to other federal agencies involved in health care programs. Not included are funds returned to states for fraud involving Medicaid. At 17 percent of America’s gross domestic product, health care is as big and complex a business as there is, and most of its constituent parts operate honestly. But there’s so much money in play that wouldbe criminals seem endlessly creative and resourceful. Estimates of the annual cost of health care fraud range from $60 billion to $90 billion. The enforcement work of the Health Care Fraud and Abuse Control Program has returned an average of $5.10 for every $1 spent since 1997, and the ratio has increased in recent years. Those are rich dividends. Guest Editorial The St. Louis Post-Dispatch

Marriage and political expedience For mer NPR and current Fox News political analyst Juan Williams made an excellent point Monday night on “The O’Reilly Factor.” Williams said the major reason President Obama had not endorsed same-sex marriage is because of the strong opposition to it in the black and Hispanic communities. Who could have doubted, though, that the president favors expanding the definition of marriage to include gays and lesbians? Vice President Joe Biden brought this divisive social issue to the forefront of the


DEAR DOCTOR K: My son wants to play football, but he’s smaller than the other boys. Is it safe for him to take a nutritional supplement such as creatine to increase his muscle? DEAR READER: Many teens, especially athletes, want to be bigger and stronger, and a fair number use creatine to do so. One study found that nearly 10 percent of high school boys have used it. Another study found that nearly half of college men have used it. Creatine is sold as a supplement, but it is found naturally in the body, mostly in muscle. It increases the production of an “energy molecule” called adenosine triphosphate (ATP). Creatine does not increase

And it may improve athletic per for mance that requires short bursts of muscle activity, such as sprinting or weightlifting.

rights, all the civil liberties.” White House Press Secretary Jay Carney tried to have it both ways when he claimed the president’s position on same-sex marriage is still “evolving.” Whole species have come and gone faster than the president’s “evolution” on this issue. Carney said the president “opposes efforts in states to repeal rights or deny rights to LGBT citizens that have already been established.” This means the president opposes North Carolina’s new constitutional amendment that defines marriage as the legal union of a man and

men. Also, there is no evidence that it helps athletes in endurance sports. One problem with nutritional supplements such as creatine is that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), which nor mally checks the safety of foods and medicines, does not check the safety of nutritional supplements. The FDA does not investigate to be sure the manufacturing process has prevented impurities from entering the supplement. There is little information on the short-term side effects — particularly in children or teens. Also, the immediate and long-term safety of creatine is See DR. K, Page A5

We are supposed to believe the president opposes “discrimination” against same-sex couples who wish to marry, but still favors traditional marriage, as he claimed back in 2008 when he said he believed “marriage is between a man and a woman.” At least, of course, until Wednesday when he sat down for a hastily arranged interview with ABC’s Robin Roberts and said he thinks “same-sex cou-

Things my mother always told me ... OPINION II

Roswell Daily Record

My mother always told me, “When you wash your hands, the dirt is supposed to wash down the drain, not be wiped on the towel.” My mother generally told me this in an agitated voice, obviously upset because the hand towel by the sink was covered in dirt and had to be put in the wash again. She couldn’t understand how a young man who seemed to always have dirty hands could not learn that the object is for the dirt is to go straight from his hands down the drain. The towel was for drying, not for cleaning. What she said made sense, but I guess I was either a slow learner or was always in a hurry to get on to my next endeavor. Today is Mother’s Day. A few years ago I bought a spiral book by Carolyn Coats that is titled “Things Your Mother Always Told You But You Didn’t Want to Hear.” It is packed with wisdom that has been shared by mothers. If I asked you, “What are some things your mother always told you?” it would be fun to hear your responses. Much of who we are today is a direct result of our mothers and what they have taught us. I always get a kick out of those big tough muscular professional football linemen who look like they can end the average person’s existence with one big step. They often have small petite framed mothers who they tower over. Although these fierce linemen cause those on the other side of the line to shudder, all their mother has to say (as in the old commercial) is, “Junior, finish your soup!” and the giant lineman melts and says, “Yes, mom.” There is just something about mothers. Before we outgrow them, they teach us core principles about life. I understand that a vast majority of a person’s makeup is determined before age 4. Although the traditional family structure with stay-home moms is less and less, there is still just something important about how a mother sows into her children. I thought I would share with you some of the “mother always told me’s” from the book: “Do unto others as you would have done to you.” I don’t know how any child can be raised without being told this countless times by their mother. This a simple but important concept for each child (and for us adults). The Golden Rule needs to be committed to memory. I can’t tell you how many times I heard this one from my own mom, yet it is still good advice today. “Always wear clean underwear; heaven forbid you should have an accident.” This one has always made me wonder. If I were in an accident, whether or not I had clean underwear would seem to be the least of my worries. I always thought that if I had clean underwear before the accident, it is not likely

ples should be able to marry.” It appears he’s calculated that whatever votes might be lost by coming out for samesex marriage will be gained by the activism of gay rights advocates and their political contributions. Traditional marriage is an issue most conservative Christians embrace, but even with the North Carolina result and similar laws in other states, this is a battle they are unlikely to win for a number of reasons. One is the behavior of so many in the traditionalist camp. If you are Christian and are going to argue in favor of traditional marriage, it does not help that so many in your camp are poor examples of what marriage is supposed to be — a lifetime union, steadfast and binding through good times and bad, sickness and health. A 2004 study by the Barna Group, of Ventura, Calif., a polling firm that focuses mainly on Christian beliefs and practices and their cultural influence, found “the likelihood of married adults getting divorced is identical among born-again Christians and those who are not born again.” In other words, the country is supposed to act as these people say, but not as large numbers of them do. Barna followed up in 2008 with a similar study that found that the 2004 numbers were not a fluke. Thirty-two percent of bornagain Christians were found to be divorced, a percentage “statistically identical to that of non-bor n again adults.” Another reason the battle for traditional marriage is likely to be lost by traditionalists is the problem moralists have always had — the difficulty of

that it would be clean after the accident. I never argued, I just had to trust Mom on this one. “In every trouble there is a blessing.” It is always darkest just before it starts to get light. The question isn’t whether or not trouble will occur in our lives, experiencing trouble is part of living. The only questions are “When will it arrive?” and “How will I handle it when it does?” Sometimes it isn’t easy to find a blessing in trouble, but looking for positives can sure change a person’s approach to the world. “Be cheerful! Of all the things you wear, your expression is the most important.” This could go along with the one I grew up with “A smile is just a frown turned upside down.” It takes so little to have a good attitude, and attitude controls everything. We don’t control the face we were given, but we can control the look on it. “Always speak the truth and you’ll never be concerned with your memory.” I never heard this one growing up, but I have heard it many times in my capacity as a lawyer talking to witnesses. The truth is the truth, it is quite simple. Making up stories can lead to all sorts of problems as, once one is created, it is hard for a person to remember what he previously said. “If you lie down with dogs, you’ll get up with fleas.” Mothers know that those her child chooses as friends will impact her child immensely. Good choices in friends will minimize the temptations children will experience. As children grow older, they will decide who to “hang” with. If a child stays away from dogs, he is not likely to end up with fleas. “If at first you don’t succeed, try reading the directions.” Whoa! This one hits too close to home. I guess this is one I never learned. It may be too late to teach this old dog new tricks. “There is no right way to do the wrong thing.” If it is the wrong thing, it is the wrong thing. There is no way to make a wrong thing

imposing their beliefs and values on others who do not share their point of view. The fight over same-sex marriage has now become a political power game and the moral principles set down on stone tablets and given to us in the Bible have been disregarded. If conservative Christians don’t accept the opinions and practices of those who favor same-sex marriage, why should gays accept theirs? The fight centers on who can muster the most votes, not whether something is objectively true and, more importantly, who gets to make the rules. Vice President Biden’s Roman Catholic Church staunchly opposes same-sex marriage. If Biden is “comfortable” with it, he must be uncomfortable with a central doctrine of his own religion. Doesn’t that elevate political pragmatism over the will of God, at least as expressed by the Catholic hierarchy? In ancient and rebellious Israel when there was no wide acceptance of the laws and precepts God had laid down for His people, the writer of the Book known as Judges uses a phrase that could easily apply to our day and our loss of moral direction: “In those days there was no king in Israel. Everyone did what was right in his own eyes.” (Judges 21:25.) How do you impose a biblical and traditionalist worldview about marriage when so many people have become their own “god”?

a right thing. This is a simple truth that is often wandered away from. “Idle hands are the devil’s workshop.” I like this one. There is something about keeping a child busy. I was kept busy with programs and activities that for the most part I enjoyed. Church youth group, baseball, basketball, jobs around the house, it seemed that there was always something going on. My parents made sure their kids didn’t have idle hands. “People who live in glass houses, should never throw stones.” I grew up with “Judge not, lest you be judged.” Either way, we have got to check ourselves. It is so easy to be critical of others. We look outward instead of inward. It is the principle, “We judge others by their actions, we judge ourselves by our intentions.” “You can catch more flies with honey than you can with vinegar.” We are back to the “be nice” rules. I am not sure why I would want to catch flies or who was the first one to try this concept out, but nevertheless, it was not for me to ask “Why?” I do remember my mother always teaching me that nice was better than “not nice.” “The great calamity is not to have failed, but to have failed to try.” Even as a child, maybe especially as a child, we feared rejection and failure. We asked questions like “What if I can’t hit the ball and strike out?” or later, “What if I ask Suzy Q out and she says no?” There is so much of life we miss out on by fear of failure. “Two wrongs don’t make a right.” When I was young I always listened to this one. But when I got to my smart aleck phase I would always respond, “But two Wrights once made an airplane!” I hope no child is reading this, but if so, I should share that I generally did not like what followed next after my smart aleck response. “The smallest good deed is better than the grandest intention.” I was taught to be a per-

not known. For that reason, creatine is banned by some sports organizations. Some reported side effects include muscle cramping, stomach pain, diarrhea, vomiting, rash, seizure, heart-rhythm problems and kidney problems. Because of these side effects, and the fact that it is not a regulated substance, it is probably best that your son not use supplements. I’d say the best way for him to be athletic and at the top of his game is to stay healthy. Remind him to eat a well-balanced diet and exercise regularly. Make sure he is getting the amount of sleep he needs for his body to rest and grow. He must also realize that he has not completed puberty yet and still has

son of action. Intentions are good, but the Good Samaritan would not be remembered today if he had only had good intentions. Good deeds are what turn the world. “Use the talents you possess; for the woods would be very silent if no birds sang except the best.” I never heard this one growing up, but it is good wisdom for all children. Each child has talents and gifts. They need to identify and develop what they have been blessed with. A child’s talent is a terrible thing to waste. At the end of the book the author says that when her oldest daughter graduated from college and left home, she told her, “Carol, I want you to remember all of those things I always told you.” Her daughter yawned and said, “Yes, Mother, but maybe you’d better write them down.” Hence the beginning of the book. My challenge to you today is from a page in the book that I first heard from my wife years after my youth, “There are only two lasting bequests we can give our children: one is roots, the other wings.” Thank God for mothers. They are filled with such wisdom. The father may be the head of the house, but the mother is the heart of the house. And it is our mothers’ hearts that passes on to each of us truths and principles that we will carry with us for the rest of our lives, often sharing with others, “My mother always told me ...” Happy Mother’s Day to each and every mother who regularly shared the same phrases using the art of repetition to train up her child in the way he should go.

room to grow — taller and wider. His muscles will bulk up naturally when he exercises, when the time is right for him. Check in with his coach. Ask about suggestions for a weight-training program that might help him to get ready for football. Even though you asked about your son, your question prompts me to mention one last thing. Some of my older patients have asked me about using creatine, along with exercise, to help fight the loss of muscle mass that comes with age. I tell them that I don’t think there is good evidence that creatine has benefits for older people. (Dr. Komaroff is a physician and professor at Harvard Medical School.

Political attacks can backfire

Dear Editor: In response to the letter “Follow the money” (RDR April 29): This letter by Mr. Moran (chairman of Democratic Party, Chaves County) strikes me as a rather clumsy attempt to discredit opponents. Contrary to Mr. Moran’s opinion of our governor, I think Martinez is doing a good job of carrying out the will of the citizens of our state, in spite of roadblocks thrown up by some that want to make her look bad for political purposes. The technicality that Cliff Pirtle brought Mr. Jennings to court on is the law, so why shouldn’t he use it? And does anyone honestly believe that Sen. Jennings would not use a technicality if he thought the result would be in his favor? If he did, it would certainly not be a “frivolous escapade” as Mr. Moran claims Pirtle’s action to be. I had never heard of Cliff Pirtle until he knocked on our door while canvassing neighborhoods a few weeks ago. I talked with him for a few minutes and he handed me a copy of his agenda. He did not act or speak like an “extreme right wing candidate” as Mr. Moran claims he is. Rather, he appeared to be an engaging, articulate young man who showed no signs of extremism. His agenda, to me, is a centered, well thought out list of things needing done, most of which I agree with. So, Mr. Jennings has served the people of District 32 for 34 years and as far as Mr. Moran is concerned, there hasn’t ever been or ever will be anyone who can do a better job. I believe 34 years is far too long for one person to serve in government no matter what office he holds. A newly elected candidate can bring good new ideas, knowledge and enthusiasm to an office, while an incumbent can become mired in the status quo. Sorry Mr. Moran, your letter sure didn’t convince me of anything that you want me to believe except that you may be better suited for student council than Cliff Pirtle. I urge you to remember that letters like yours can backfire and make your opponent look that much more attractive. Best regards, Terry Ninnemann A voter since 1968 Roswell

the issue of gay marriage. In his weekly radio and Internet address, the president didn’t mention his history-making endorsement. Instead, he repeated his call for congressional lawmakers to take up a “to-do list” of tax breaks, mortgage relief and other initiatives that he insists will create jobs and help middle-class families struggling in the sluggish economy. Having spent part of the week on the West Coast raising money for his reelection ef fort, Obama appeared in the Rose Garden of the White House to honor award-winning law enforcement officers. It was Obama’s first joint appearance with Vice President Joe Biden after Biden, according to aides, apologized to the president for pushing gay marriage to the forefront of the presidential campaign and inadvertently pressuring Obama to declare his support for same-sex unions. Obama and Biden were all smiles as they walked to the sun-splashed ceremony together. Introducing Obama, Biden credited the president’s commitment to law enforcement and the two quickly embraced before Obama spoke. The late Rev. Jerry Falwell founded Liberty University in 1971 to be for evangelical Christians “what Notre Dame is to young Catholics and Brigham Young is to young Mormons,” as his son, University Chancellor Jerry Falwell Jr., said on commencement day. It’s become a destination for Republican politicians looking to speak to the religious right, and Romney’s campaign team — planning the speech long before gay marriage became a central issue — viewed it as an opportunity to address the kind of socially conservative audience that had been wary of him during the prolonged GOP primary fight. For Romney, the challenge is twofold. His past policy positions, including support for abortion rights, don’t sit well. But his personal faith is also an issue

beyond.” In further acknowledgment of NMMI’s history, Martinez remarked how NMMI was the first school in New Mexico to integrate military practices. She said the school has always been proud to instill a servicebased mentality in its students, and listed NMMI’s achievements as proof of the institution’s success. “In World War I, NMMI sent its 320 young men to the defense of a nation,” she said. “In World War II, graduates of NMMI involved themselves in every aspect of the war, and more than 150 of those fearless young people gave their lives for the sake of our freedom, and the freedom of others. “Throughout history,


World War I, World War II, the Vietnam war, presentday operations — NMMI has consistently produced the greatest graduates. Graduates who are tested in the classroom, and prepared to pass the greatest test of all: The defense of our great nation. Both at home, and abroad.”

Martinez expressed to the graduates how they had been taught the value of discipline, time management, learning the stakes, self-sacrifice and the principles from which the nation was built. She then joked how she was about to make herself unpopular with the graduates, and proceeded to issue to cadets what she called their final homework

assignment at NMMI. “I want each and every one of you to take these skills and put them to work, every single day of your life,” Martinez said. “... Run as far as you can, and don’t look back. You have worked way too hard, and come too far to be anything less than extraordinary. ... “I encourage you all to take action. I have found that good things do not necessarily come to those who wait. In my experience, sometimes you need to fight for opportunity. Make it happen. Don’t let life happen to you. You have to happen. “Do not be afraid of the unknown, do not be afraid of what you have not yet experienced. Life truly is an

adventure. And you are about to embark on the greatest adventure of all.” Martinez remarked how several people once told her that her own goals and aspirations were too ambitious, and that because she did not accept their assumptions, she eventually became the first female Hispanic governor in the United States. Martinez closed her speech with a nod to the New Mexico Centennial, telling the graduating class that the milestone should remind them of the legacy they will leave for future generations. She said that as graduates look ahead to the next chapter of their own histories, they should remember how that same


legacy is shaped by the decisions they make and the priorities they value in the present.

“I believe that good leaders are not born; good leaders are made,” she said. “And you are already leaders among your peers. Soon you will inspire the next generation following in your footsteps. …

“So let’s make a deal. As governor I will pursue policies that pave the way for your success. You, you work on that one last homework assignment. And continue to chase your dreams, and never let anyone tell you that your aspirations or your goals are too grand.”

would say,” Acker man explained. Moyer worked side-by-side with Ackerman as they led a group of children in a clay workshop during the event. Moyer’s joy for teaching and sharing art with children was evident as she passed clay around and listened to students as they explained what their creation was about. “(The event) brings families, teachers, artists ... the whole community together to celebrate the arts,” she said. “I’ve had countless parents and grandparents come up to me and say, ‘thank you so much for doing this.’ “It’s a lot of work,” she added, “but it’s worth it.”

because many evangelicals don’t consider Mormons to be fellow Christians. Evangelicals are a critical segment of the GOP base; many of those voters backed his GOP rivals in the prolonged primary. But he’s mostly avoided talking about it on the campaign trail, largely avoiding religious forums and events throughout the primary season. And at arguably the most religious venue he’s addressed during the campaign — since announcing his bid, Romney hasn’t made a public appearance in a church of any kind — he continued to keep his own faith in the background. Surveys have shown for months now that whatever reservations Republican evangelicals have about Romney’s faith, they are likely to back him in a general election. A spokesman for Liberty said that Romney is not the first Mormon to speak at a university commencement. “This is our 39th commencement speaker, and 21 of those 39 speakers would not necessarily meet Liberty’s doctrinal theological statement,” said the spokesman, Johnnie Moore, explaining that anyone who teaches at the university is held to that doctrinal standard. Romney’s selection as commencement speaker was an issue for some students who graduated from Liberty this weekend. When the school announced Romney as commencement speaker, hundreds of angry comments were posted on Liberty’s Facebook page by people who said they were students or alumni, objecting to giving a Mormon a platfor m. The school responded by affirming its welcome to Romney. Ahead of Romney’s remarks, University Chancellor Jerry Falwell Jr. said the school’s invitation to him should not be considered an endorsement. He noted that his father, the school’s founder, said that Christians should vote for the candidate who shares their political positions “not the candidate that shares his or her faith or theology.”

GRANVILLE, France (AP) — Going back to where it all began, a new exhibit in the childhood home of legendary designer Christian Dior in Normandy sheds new light on the house’s huge contribution to the silver screen. The setting also provides rare insight into how a young Dior, who liked to spend time in the garden, became inspired by the Granville landscape and decided to dedicate his life to fashion. The exhibit features a rare collection: three floors with 50 glittering gowns, worn by actresses including Grace Kelly, Elizabeth Taylor and Rita Hayworth, both

on and off the screen from 1942 to the present day. “It’s not something that many people know. For Christian Dior, it was his first job: it all started with cinema costume and dressing up. By the time of his first fashion show in 1947, he’d already done eight films. Now over a 100,� Christian Dior museum cocurator Barbara JeauffroyMairet said. Opening the exhibit is a mannequin in a black “flower stem� dress from Dior’s first collection in 1947. It’s one that Hayworth bought from what was then her up-and-coming designer friend on the cusp of fame. Standing

against a huge photo of Hayworth reclining in an intimate setting with Dior — it’s visual proof that from the outset, cinema stars swarmed around the house. “Hayworth was there at that famous first show on the front row. Actresses couldn’t wait to be linked to the house. Dior was, simply, the desired style ... And to this day,� ‘’Stars in Dior� curator Florence Mullen said. T rue enough: the exhibit testifies to the house’s staying power, ending 65 years later with the black tulle bustier worn by French actress Marion Cotillard’s at the 2009 Academy Awards. “It was the theater, the

Celtics edge 76ers in Game 1 Section

Roswell Daily Record

BOSTON (AP) — Kevin Garnett scored 29 points — his most in the regularor postseason this year — and added 11 rebounds on Saturday night to give the Boston Celtics a 92-91 victory over the Philadelphia 76ers in the opener of their Eastern Conference semifinal series. Rajon Rondo had 17 assists, 13 points and 12 rebounds for his eighth career playoff triple-dou-

ble. He ran the length of the court to receive the inbounds pass and dribble out the final 3.4 seconds of the game. Game 2 is Monday night in Boston before the series shifts to Philadelphia for Games 3 and 4. Andre Iguodala scored 19 points and Evan Turner had 16 points and 10 rebounds for the 76ers, who advanced to the second round for the first


time since 2003 by beating East No. 1 seed Chicago. The Sixers led 77-67 with 11 minutes to play before Boston scored 23 of the next 30 points, with Rondo making a jumper to cut it to 80-79, then another with 3:37 left to give Boston the lead. After Spencer Hawes’ basket from the right baseline put the Sixers up 8483, Rondo drove to the basket and, with his path

Roswell’s game against Alpine was suspended until 5 p.m. today because of rain. At the time when the game was called, the Invaders held a 2-1 lead in the top of the fifth. Roswell’s two runs came off a solo homer by Casanova Donaldson and an RBI-groundout by Brian Fitzpatrick.



LOS ANGELES (AP) — Aaron Harang pitched eight solid innings, pinch-hitter Tony Gwynn Jr. hit a goahead RBI single, and the Los Angeles Dodgers improved the best record in the majors with a 2-1 victory over the Colorado Rockies on Saturday night. Harang (2-2) allowed a run on four hits and escaped a bases-loaded jam in the third, helping send the Rockies to their seventh loss in eight games and dropping them a season-worst 8 1-2 games behind the Dodgers (22-11). The 6-foot-7 right-hander was 0-3 with an 8.64 ERA in his previous five starts against Colorado since Aug. 22, 2008, when he pitched six scoreless innings for Cincinnati in an 8-5 win at Coors Field. Kenley Jansen got three outs for his third save in four attempts. Josh Outman (0-1) took the loss.

Kevin Na takes a 1-shot lead at Players

PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. (AP) — Kevin Na didn’t feel comfortable about anything Saturday except his name atop the leaderboard at The Players Championship. Na rolled in a 15-foot birdie putt on the 18th hole for one of only three rounds without a bogey on a tough day at the TPC Sawgrass. It gave him a 4-under 68 and a one-shot lead over Matt Kuchar as he goes after the richest prize on the PGA Tour — a fiveyear exemption and a spot in all the majors. For all his practice swings and waggles, even purposely missing the ball so he could start over, Na pieced together a brilliant round free of bogeys. He finished with two birdies on the last three holes to build a oneshot lead over Matt Kuchar, who hit into the water at the island-green 17th and had to settle for a 69. Rickie Fowler, coming off his first PGA Tour win last week at Quail Hollow, was dynamic as ever as he shot up the leaderboard. Fowler didn’t make a bogey until the last hole but still had the best score of the third round with a 66 and was two shots behind. He is trying to become the first player since David Duval in 1997 to win his first two PGA Tour titles in consec-

utive weeks. Texas Open champion Ben Curtis also played bogey-free. He just didn’t have as many birdies, missing from inside 10 feet on his last two holes for a 70. He was five shots behind, along with former Masters champion Zach Johnson (73). Tiger Woods never came close to getting into contention, though he gave himself plenty of chances. The card shows two birdies, two bogeys and a 72 that left him 10 shots out of the lead going into the final round. It was hard for him to digest. “I played well today and didn’t get anything out of that round,” Woods said. “It was probably the most solid I’ve hit the golf ball all year, actually. Even though I hit a couple off line, they were just hit dead flush. I just got nothing out of the round.” Kuchar went eight consecutive holes without a par — six birdies and two bogeys — to seize control on a windy day at Sawgrass. But he slightly See PLAYERS, Page B2

After the rain-interrupted series opener when he faced only five batters against his former team, Wilson worked into the sixth inning Saturday to lead the Los Angeles Angels to a 4-2 win over Texas. “I did a lot of homework and See ANGELS, Page B2

stuff, and wanted to put it to use,” said Wilson, insisting that it wasn’t personal facing the team he pitched for in the last two World Series. “Emotionally, I had a dry run (Friday) to see what it was going to feel like and hear the fans and their colorful insights on me, and my career and whatnot,” he said. “I’m just trying to get the hitters out.” Wilson was gone before Kendrys Morales had a pinch-hit, tiebreaking sacrifice fly in the seventh. David Carpenter (1-1) faced only two batters after replacing Wilson with two outs in the sixth. Ernesto Frieri, acquired from San Diego on May 3, worked 1 2/3 innings and Scott Downs got the final out for his third save. But it was Wilson who really saved them. “It was a great bounce-back win. A long night last night, you can’t say enough for what C.J. did,” manager Mike Scioscia said. “Sometimes it sounds simple, but you have to go out there and pitch and execute. ... He pitched his heart out getting that deep into the game against a lineup that is really hitting the ball well.” Josh Hamilton hit his majorsleading 18th homer — the ninth in six games for the Rangers slugger. That solo blast in the sixth tied the game at 2 after he had already struck out twice against

missed on his tee shot at the par-3 17th and never came close to land. He did well to hit his third shot from the drop area to 5 feet to escape with bogey. “It was exciting,” Kuchar said. “A lot of birdies and a lot more bogeys than I normally make. But I knew today was going to be a tricky day. I knew there were going to be a lot of bogeys. I knew there were dangers around every corner.” Na managed to avoid them, and now tries to become the first 54-hole leader to win The Players Championship since the tournament moved to May. “I know how to play under pressure,” Na said. “I’ve won before. I’ve been in situations like this. I’ve got to take everything I’ve learned and do my best.” He was at 12-under 204. Na is considered among the slowest players in golf, and he was given a bad time on the 16th hole for being on the clock and taking too long to hit his shot. One more bad time and he would have become the first PGA Tour player in 20 years to be given a oneshot penalty.

Wilson. “C.J. did a good job. He’s one of those guys you don’t know what he’s going to throw,” Hamilton said. “He really doesn’t follow any kind of pattern or get into a routine.” Hamilton, who hit two homers Friday night after a four-homer game Tuesday in Baltimore, leads the majors with a .402 batting average, 18 homers and 41 RBIs. The second game of the series was the earliest ever at the 18year-old Rangers Ballpark. The 12:07 p.m. start came only 12 hours after Friday night’s game ended. Mark Trumbo had a towering two-run homer for the Angels off Matt Harrison (4-3), who had five strikeouts and two walks in sixplus innings. After Trumbo walked and Howie Kendrick reached on a bunt single to chase Harrison, Peter Bourjos bunted for a hit to load the bases. Morales then hit a flyball to left for a 3-2 lead, John Hester had an infield single and Mike Trout added another sac fly. In his return to Texas, Wilson threw only 22 pitches Friday night before a one-hour, 56-minute rain delay in the first inning of the Rangers’ 10-3 victory. The lefthander was charged with four runs after allowing three infield singles and a walk, but didn’t return once the rain stopped. “It was difficult, but being a reliever for so long, I guess you develop a sort of I-have-to-pitchtomorrow routine,” Wilson said. “I

He was informed of his bad time walking to the 17th green and appealed because he said his caddie’s shadow was in the way. He lost the appeal. Na said he no longer was on the clock for the last two holes. On the 18th, he drilled his tee shot into the fairway after only three waggles. Then, he backed off only once and hit his approach to 15 feet for his last birdie. Na said he is changing his swing and still struggles with balance, making it hard for him to get comfortable over the ball. He knows the world is watching, and he realizes it makes for painful viewing from living rooms and behind the ropes. “I know it’s frustrating,” he said. “It’s frustrating for me. I want to pull the trigger. ... It’s getting better little by little. Hopefully, it will go away by the end of the year.” The first step is getting through Sunday. Kuchar, who also challenged at the Masters, is getting by with control of his driver and his emotions. Even on a poor tee shot at the 14th, the worst Kuchar could say was, “Oh, stinker!” What cost him more was a ball sinking to the bottom of the

guess I did enough convincing in Mike’s office last night.” Wilson, who signed as a free agent last winter with his hometown Angels, walked his first two batters Saturday before Hamilton struck out and Adrian Beltre hit into a double play. “Outstanding per formance, especially considering what he had to deal with coming back on zero days’ rest,” Trumbo said. “He kept us in the game and allowed

us to get where we are now.” Wilson bounced an 0-2 pitch with two outs in the fifth that hit Napoli, the catcher whose phone number Wilson put on Twitter as a prank during spring training. Brandon Snyder and Craig Gentry followed with consecutive singles to cut the gap to 2-1. Wilson struck out four and walked three, while allowing two runs and five hits on 93 pitches in 5 2-3 innings.

The last major leaguer to start consecutive games was Aaron Myette for Texas on Sept. 3 and 4, 2002, at Baltimore. Myette was ejected from the first game after only two pitches. It was the first time an Angels pitcher started back-to-back games. In the fourth, Trumbo pulled a 420-foot blast off the facade of the second deck of seats in left field. His fifth homer came after Torii Hunter drew a two-out walk.

pond at the 17th, though Kuchar can’t argue with his position in the last group Sunday. Fowler still sees himself as an underdog, even though he broke through last week at Quail Hollow to win in a playoff that included Rory McIlroy. The last player to win consecutive weeks on tour was Woods in 2009. Woods, Tom Kite in 1989 and Ray-

mond Floyd in 1981 are the only players to make that second straight win in The Players Championship. Fowler figured no one gave him much of a chance. That might change now. “I feel like I’m in kind of an underdog position — maybe overlooked at the start of the week, won last week, maybe a little tired,” Fowler said. “I’m ready to

MIAMI (AP) — LeBron James spent two days trying to figure out the right words. An assistant jotted some ideas on notecards, which were ignored. So when the moment came to deliver his MVP acceptance speech, James spoke emotionally about family, charity, history and what the Miami Heat organization means to him. And he finished with a flourish. “Heat nation, we have a bigger goal,” James said. “This is very overwhelming to me as an individual award. But this is not the award I want, ultimately. I want that championship. That’s all that matters to me.” James accepted his third NBA MVP award Saturday, making him the eighth player in league history to win that many. The others — Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Michael Jordan, Bill Russell, Wilt Chamberlain, Larry Bird, Magic Johnson and Moses Malone — all have won NBA titles. On Sunday, James resumes that quest. “He’s going to get his,” Heat President Pat Riley said. “He will get his championship. And there might

be a lot more there, too.” James received 85 of a possible 121 first-place votes from a panel of sports writers and broadcasters who cover the league, with fans on combining for one vote. He earned 1,074 points, topping Oklahoma City’s Kevin Durant (889 points, 24 first-place votes), the Los Angeles Clippers’ Chris Paul (385, six first-place votes), the Los Angeles Lakers’ Kobe Bryant (352, two first-place votes), and San Antonio’s Tony Parker (331, four first-place votes).

go. Like I said last week, it’s all about giving yourself chances out here, and I gave myself a chance last week on Sunday and took advantage of it. Go out tomorrow, have some fun, give it our best shot and see where that puts us.” Woods’ chances effectively ended just before the turn. He missed a 6-foot birdie on No. 6 and threeputted No. 7 from 12 feet.

He missed a 7-foot birdie putt on the par-3 eighth, and a 12-foot birdie putt on the par -5 ninth. And then, he bogeyed the 10th. “I figured if I shot 67, 68, something in that range, I would be right in the ball game going into tomorrow,” Woods said. “This golf course is set up today where you can go out there and shoot a 65, but then again, you can also go shoot something in the 80s pretty easily, too.” George McNeill shot 82, the only round in the 80s, though there were some big wrecks. Harris English, one shot out of the lead in his Players Championship debut, hit an opening drive that bloodied a marshal. He made bogey, then took a triple bogey on the par-5 second and a double bogey on the fifth for a 42 on the front nine. He shot 79 and was 12 shots behind. Charlie Wi was hanging around the contenders until he ended his day with a four-putt double bogey on the 18th, leaving him seven shots back. Phil Mickelson, trying to cap off a week that began with his induction into the World Golf Hall of Fame, had a 70 that gave him an outside shot at 4-under 212.

LeBron James wins 3rd NBA MVP award

LeBron James poses after having accepted the NBA MVP trophy, Saturday in Miami. Calling the honor "overwhelming" but pointing to a "bigger goal," James on Saturday became the eighth player in NBA history to win the MVP award three times.

James lauded the other top candidates for the MVP, and lauded his teammates and those around him even more. “This is a team game and I wouldn’t be receiving what I’ve received in the past and now in the present without my teammates and without my family and friends who’ve helped me to this point,” James said away from the stage. “Even though it’s an individual award, I always go back to my teammates. I always go back to my friends and my family. No one can do it

alone.” When the results were released, Durant offered congratulations. “LeBron, that’s like unheard of for a guy to get three out of four MVPs,” Durant said. “A good friend of mine. I’m happy for him and of course I would love to have the MVP but at the same time, I’ve just got to keep improving, keep getting better and hopefully I’ll have one soon.” The way some around the Heat see it, Saturday could See MVP, Page B4

Lakers back Brown after Magic’s prediction

LOS ANGELES (AP) — The Lakers issued a statement publicly backing Mike Brown on Saturday after Magic Johnson declared the first-year head coach would be fired if Los Angeles lost Game 7 of its firstround playoff series with Denver. The club issued its statement a few hours before the third-seeded Lakers hosted the Nuggets in the series finale. Johnson spoke Friday night on ESPN, where he serves as an analyst. The Hall of Famer sold his minority ownership stake in the Lakers, but is still a club vice president and a close friend of the Buss family, which owns the team. “The opinion expressed yesterday by Magic Johnson regarding Mike Brown was his personal opinion and was made in his role as a TV analyst,” the team statement read. “His words were not made on behalf of the Los Angeles Lakers, and in no way do they reflect the feelings or position of team ownership or management. We are fully committed to and supportive of Mike Brown as head coach of the Lakers.” Johnson also said 7-footers Andrew Bynum and Pau Gasol will be “run ... out of town” if the 16-time champion Lakers are eliminated by Denver. A year ago, Brown replaced 11-time NBA champion coach Phil Jackson, who walked away from the franchise after the Lakers’ second-round loss to Dallas last spring. Brown led the Lakers to their fifth straight Pacific Division title and a 41-25 record, but Los Angeles lost two straight closeout games this week against the Nuggets, leading to a winner-take-all Game 7. Brown brushed off Johnson’s comments

during the Lakers’ shootaround on Saturday morning. Brown has two more guaranteed years on his contract with a fourth-year option, making an average of $4.5 million per season. “Magic is a good guy, and he’s entitled to his opinion,” Brown said. “Magic has a job to do, and one of his jobs is to voice his opinion. He’s a great guy. There’s nothing for me to be concerned about there. I’m coaching to win this game tonight, and that’s it.” Johnson and other Lakers legends often weigh in with dramatic pronouncements about the current teams. James Worthy frequently provides meaty sound bites in his role as a local television studio analyst — and last year, Johnson famously declared the Lakers should “blow up” the roster after their second-round loss to Dallas. Johnson has been busy lately with his new job as a part-owner of the Los Angeles Dodgers, but he still found time to criticize Brown, a successful coach who has won just about everything but a championship. Brown won 272 games over five seasons with LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers, who fired him in 2010 after losing in the second round. The Cavs reached the NBA finals in 2007, and Brown was the NBA’s coach of the year in 2009 after Cleveland went 66-16.


Vikings get sweetheart stadium deal

By TIM DAHLBERG AP Sports Columnist Whoa, that was a close one. Leave it to some penny pinching Minnesotans to make a couple of billionaires sweat it out. If Zygi and Mark Wilf had known it was going to be this hard to get a new stadium built in Minneapolis, they might have gone looking for some other taxpayer-funded trough to guzzle at. They’re going to get their new stadium, though, and what a place it should be. A billion-dollar palace downtown, smack on the same spot the Vikings play today, and loaded with the kind of amenities that make owning an NFL team so much fun. The best part of it is they’ll get it for next to nothing. Sure, $477 million seems like a lot of money, even for billionaires. By the time the Wilfs get done selling stadium naming rights and the dreaded personal seat licenses, though, they may not even need the $200 million loan the NFL has promised to help get it done. No wonder team executives were jubilant this week when Minnesota lawmakers voted to approve the deal, even though they added $50 million to the team’s share of the cost to keep angry taxpayers from attacking the state capitol with pitchforks. “Let’s build it!” vice president Lester Bagley shouted, hugging another team executive as Vikings fans in the gallery above the state Senate chamber broke out in a rendition of the “Skol Vikings!” fight song. It was a classic shakedown, the kind the NFL is particularly good at. After years of thinly veiled threats about the Vikings possibly moving to Los Angeles if they didn’t get a proper new stadium, Commissioner Roger Goodell put the hammer down last month with a visit to state legislators that jumpstarted what had been a stalled debate over how much taxpayers should cough up for the team. The final tally was some $500 million, funded partly by a scheme to boost gambling revenues across the state. The new stadium will be built on the site of the Metrodome, just a few blocks away from Target Field, which opened in 2010 with taxpayers picking up $350 million of the original $480 million price tag. You might think Minnesotans are just

rubes who got conned into spending nearly a billion dollars on stadiums, but they’re hardly alone. Wealthy owners have been stealing from taxpayers ever since they figured out that communities with major sports teams would pay good money for the right to keep them. The pitch is that it’s good for the town, good for the local economy. What it mainly does, though, is make owners even richer with streams of new revenues from luxury box sales and premium seating charges they could only dream of in their old digs. That’s particularly true for the Vikings, who were ranked 28th out of 32 teams in valuation by Forbes last year at $796 million. The Wilfs didn’t have to look far to see what a new stadium can do. The Indianapolis Colts, who were ranked 24th among NFL teams by Forbes in 2005 are now 11th, thanks to a $720 million stadium they paid only $100 million for. The team’s value has increased from $715 million to $1.057 billion in that period alone. Indianapolis did get a Super Bowl out of the deal, small consolation for residents who pay taxes for Lucas Oil Stadium every time they buy something. And Minneapolis will likely get one, too, because that’s how the NFL rewards cities that play ball. Indeed, they’re already talking Super Bowl in San Francisco, even though the new stadium for the 49ers is being built 40 miles away in Santa Clara. Money trumps geography, and the residents of Santa Clara agreed to contribute $114 million for a new stadium and sign off on an $850 million bank loan even though the city is so financially strapped that it had to borrow $6 million from the 49ers to do site preparation work. The worst stadium deal ever, though, may be in St. Louis, where they built a sparkling new dome in 1995 to lure the Rams from Los Angeles. The city, county and state together spend $24 million a year on debt for the stadium, but the Rams have a sweetheart lease that allows the team to leave if the dome isn’t among the top 25 percent of NFL stadiums. It isn’t, of course, and that means taxpayers will be digging even deeper to keep the Rams. The team has already rejected a plan that would include $60 million in public money for a new scoreboard, more club seating and better lighting, and there’s no doubt the final tab will be much more. Compared to the dome in St. Louis, the Metrodome — which opened in 1982 — is an aged relic, the last stadium built in the multipurpose use era. Still, it wasn’t a bad place to play football, and they did spend $20 million on a new roof for it last year after the old one collapsed in a snowstorm. But the new stadium will have suites — and lots of them. It will have premium seating, and every amenity possible to separate fans from their money. The Wilfs will do well on their investment, no doubt. They should thank the good citizens of Minnesota for picking up the tab.

B4 Sunday, May 13, 2012 MVP

Continued from Page B2

have been a fourth straight MVP for James. His numbers this season — 27.1 points, 7.9 rebounds and 6.2 assists and 1.9 steals per game on 53 percent shooting — are extremely comparable to last season, when he finished a distant third in the MVP race behind Derrick Rose and Dwight Howard. Similar numbers. Much better result. And James understands why. A year ago, following all the fallout that accompanied his decision to leave Cleveland and sign with Miami, James realized there was no way he was going to have voters back him for a third straight season. Long before the results were in, James knew the 2011 MVP wasn’t going to be his. “I just felt like there was nothing good that was going to come out as far as the individual accolades,” James said. “I wanted to be an MVP for this team, but it didn’t matter to me what the outside world was saying. It didn’t matter what the voters were saying last year. It was just about this team.” “I’m not saying that’s changed,” he added, “but I think time heals all.” Heat assistant coach Bob McAdoo won the MVP while playing for the Buffalo Braves in 1975. McAdoo said James had to deal with “absolute hate” last year after his move to Miami, and some believe the repercussions kept him from getting as many MVP votes as he may have deserved a year ago. That’s no longer a prob-

lem. “He’s already a Hall of Fame player. That’s in the bag,” McAdoo said. “If you ask him, a world championship or an individual award, he’ll take the world championship every time.” Abdul-Jabbar was 26 when his third MVP season — out of a record six — ended. James is 27. Riley, the former Los Angeles Lakers coach during the Showtime era, has an affinity for both. And he thinks he can see a parallel as well. “He’s got 10 more years at least ahead of him at a very high level,” Riley said. “You just know his competitive nature and how he prepares himself and how he plays. That could be out there for him.” James got the word about this MVP award Thursday. Longtime friend and close associate Randy Mims delivered the message because James couldn’t be reached when the call came. Of all the messages Mims has given James over the years, this one was unforgettable, he said. “It was kind of an honor, honestly,” Mims said. “A huge honor. His response, it was like a breath of fresh air, like, ‘Wow, I did?’ I know what was put into this year, being part of it. I know what we went through last year and trying to just rebuild him, his game, some of the things he wanted to get back to doing as a person.” James was out shopping Friday night when word began to spread that he won. Even though James already had spent a day processing the news, he said it was moving to hear others react.

On Saturday James was named the NBA MVP for the third time. “This is crazy,” James said. James posed with the trophy Saturday and will get to show it off to Heat fans Sunday afternoon when presented with the prize again by Commissioner David Stern before Miami faces Indiana in Game 1 of an Eastern Conference semifinal series. James’ voice broke a couple of times as he spoke Saturday — highly uncharacteristic for him — and he confessed he was more nervous than he expected. “I see my two sons, I do what I do and I try to perform at the highest level

Broncos offensive boss revamps playbook yet again ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — The Denver Broncos still plan on running an option offense. Only, this version centers on giving Peyton Manning the option of calling anything he wants. For the second time in six months, offensive coordinator Mike McCoy has to overhaul his playbook to fit the QB under center. McCoy restructured the offense on the fly last October to better suit Tim Tebow’s unique skill set, switching over to the unconventional read-option. Tebow proficiently ran the system, too, leading the Broncos into the playoffs for the first time in six seasons. But with Tebow a member of the New York Jets and Manning taking over, McCoy has gone back to the drawing board. Naturally, he’s leaning heavily on the opinion of the league’s only four-time MVP for this revamped scheme. Any play that Manning feels comfortable running, it goes into the playbook.

Any play he doesn’t, well, it’s gone, ripped from the pages. “This is going to be a work in progress for everybody,” McCoy said Saturday after the second day of a rookie minicamp. “With Peyton coming in, he’s got plenty of ideas and things he’s done a great job with over his career. Our job as coaches is to adjust to the talent we have and the players we have. We’ll make the necessary adjustments as we go along. “Build the best system we can.” With Tebow running the show last season, McCoy was limited in what he could dial up on game day. That’s not a knock on Tebow — he was just green at the position and so McCoy relied on a steady diet of running plays to take the pressure off him and also kept the tight ends close by to help with pass protection. Obviously, that won’t be the case with Manning, who was brought in to throw, not hand off. Tight ends Joel

Dreessen and Jacob Tamme were added to catch passes, not simply pass block. “Tight ends will be more involved,” McCoy said. “They’ll be the main part of progressions.” McCoy is hoping Manning will be receptive to some of the Broncos’ staples, maybe even come to enjoy working out of a two-back system. “We’ve had a lot of success with that here, in the past couple of years,” McCoy said. “We’ll pick and choose what we want to do, come the opening game.” In other words, nothing is set in stone. Nor will a play when it’s called in the huddle. After all, Manning is a maestro at surveying a defensive alignment and making the appropriate adjustments at the line. It’s one of his greatest strengths — along with his wealth of knowledge. “When a guy has played as long as he has, it’s not going to take him a long time to figure it out,” McCoy said. “I’ll tell you what: The way Peyton works and the way he wants to work is unbelievable. He doesn’t want to leave any detail out. He’s going to be very meticulous in everything he does. “It’s going to be different. You’re going to see a different type of football, a different way we approach the game during practice. Peyton, he’s one of the great leaders of the game.” It’s incumbent for those around Manning to pick up their game, too. That’s why receivers Eric Decker and Demaryius Thomas have been diligently working out, because they very well could be the biggest benefactors in Manning’s arrival. “They’re like two little kids in a candy shop right now,” McCoy said. “They’ve worked extremely hard this offseason so far. They know an opportunity like this doesn’t come around very often. To be able to play with a quarterback we have now, they’re doing everything possible to make sure they know every little detail of everything we’re doing, getting in the best shape of their lives.”

every night, and a big part of the reason is those guys. I don’t want to let them down,” James said, pausing for a brief moment as he looked at fiancie Savannah Brinson and his sons. “Secondly, my teammates, like I said. The reason I’m up here today is because of those guys. If those guys don’t sacrifice what they sacrifice every single night ... I wouldn’t be up here.” Moments later, he asked the entire Heat roster to join him on the stage, and the players huddled behind him. “These 14 guys right here, they give everything,” James


said. “And they give me everything.” Said Heat coach Erik Spoelstra: “We do not take LeBron James for granted, not here in this organization.” Heat guard Dwyane Wade grabbed the trophy before the ceremony started, a playful jab and nothing else. When he was having an MVP-caliber season but finished third in 2009, Wade said James would be a candidate for the award for years to come. He didn’t mind then, and minds even less now that they’re teammates. “It’s amazing to think

about it in that sense — three in four years,” Wade said. “And there could have been one last year. It just shows how great of a talent, how great of a player that he is. Obviously, as an organization, we’re excited, especially coming off of last season and everything that happened and was said.” James came into this season with a new mindset, a happier one, one that meant he wasn’t going to play this season the way he did last year when he was consumed by trying to silence critics. The critics, he knows now, won’t be going away.

inbounded the ball from between the benches, and Rondo sprinted back into the backcourt and outran his defender to the wrong basket as the time expired. Pierce, who had a sprained MCL in his left knee, scored 14 points on 3-for -11 shooting. Rondo was only 6 for 15 from the floor, but he was 3 for 6 in the fourth quarter, adding five rebounds and four assists. Both teams advanced by winning their first-round series in six games: Boston beat Atlanta, and Philadelphia eliminated the Bulls to become the fifth No. 8 seed to eliminate a No. 1. They got only one day off before beginning the second round in Boston, where the Celtics earned their only victory against the Sixers this year. Philadelphia won the two games at home, including a 32-point victory on March 7. None of the three regular -season meetings between the teams was close. The Sixers scored the first seven points of the game and led by 10 at the end of the first quarter, when Boston shot 30 percent. It was 45-32 when Boston scored 10 of the last 12 points in the half, with Rondo picking up four assists and a steal in the final 3 minutes before the break. A little more than two minutes into the third, Avery Bradley outraced Rondo to a long rebound and took it in, splitting defenders Iguodala and Holiday for the reverse layup that made it 48-47 — Boston’s first lead of the game. Philadelphia quickly retook the lead and extended it to eight points. Notes: Garnett scored eight points on 4-for -6 shooting in the first quarter and was the only Celtics starter to make a basket in the first. ... Ray Allen, who was 1 for 7 from the floor in Game 6 of the Atlanta series while struggling with bone spurs in his right ankle, was 3 for 5 in 14 minutes in the first half on Saturday.

Yankees pound Mariners, Brewers blow out Cubs Roswell Daily Record

NEW YORK (AP) — By the time Andy Pettitte gets to the Bronx it may be too late. The New York Yankees’ rotation seems to have righted itself. Phil Hughes won consecutive starts for the first time this season, Raul Ibanez homered against his former team for the second day in a row and the Yankees beat former New York prospect Hector Noesi in a 6-2 win over the Seattle Mariners on Saturday. “He did a good job,” manager Joe Girardi said of Hughes. “We’re going to need innings out of our rotation.” Over the five games of this homestand, Yankees starters are 4-0 with a 1.31 ERA, 27 strikeouts and 11 walks. That’s one solid trip through the rotation going into Pettitte’s first start since 2010 on Sunday. It was just a couple weeks ago that Freddy Garcia was demoted to the bullpen and Hughes couldn’t get out of the third inning against Texas. He followed that with a loss to Baltimore before a strong start on Sunday in Kansas City — his first time getting out of the sixth this season. “It’s been a process overall to get myself right,” Hughes said. “As far as a turning point, it’s hard to get worse than the beginning of the year.” Jayson Nix hit a two-run shot during a four-run second inning for his first homer with the Yankees, who have won six of eight. Hughes (3-4) allowed six hits and a run in 7 2/3 innings with four strikeouts and a walk. The right-hander gave up a homer to Mike Carp in the seventh inning. Boone Logan came in and struck out Ichiro Suzuki with two runners on to end the eighth after allowing a fly ball to Carp that went off the top of the fence in right field. Video review overturned the original call of a home run, leaving Carp with an RBI double. Logan struck out Justin Smoak and Michael Saunders for his second career save and first since April 2006 — which came at Seattle when he was with the Chicago White Sox. Ibanez homered in the fourth inning to make it 5-0 after the Yankees scored all four runs in the second with two outs. Nix’s homer followed RBI doubles by Russell Martin and Ibanez. “Those are the runs that

kill teams,” Girardi said. “Those are the runs that are big for you and we got those today.” On Friday night, Jesus Montero put the Mariners ahead 2-1 in the top of the before Ibanez sixth answered in the bottom half with a three-run shot of his own to prevent the Yankees’ recent trade with Seattle from haunting them — at least for a game. Noesi (2-4) was traded to Seattle in January along with Montero for pitchers Michael Pineda and Jose Campos. Pineda has since been lost for the season due to injury. Noesi lasted seven innings, allowing five runs and six hits. He struck out four without a walk, but the second inning was enough to cost him, though he allowed just two hits in his last five innings. “I think he learned a lot there in that second inning,” Mariners manager Eric Wedge said. “This kid is going to be a heck of a pitcher and it’s been good to watch him learn each and every time he goes out there. He had good stuff and I thought he really pitched well, but he just made a couple of mistakes in that second inning.”

Brewers 8, Cubs 2 MILWAUKEE (AP) — Edwin Maysonet did not come to Miller Park on Saturday expecting to play. Milwaukee’s reserve infielder, who was called up from Triple-A Nashville six days ago, started at second base with Rickie Weeks sidelined by a sore wrist and hit his first career grand slam to help the Brewers beat the Chicago Cubs. Maysonet had only one career home run before Saturday — and it took him three years to get the second after hitting his first for Houston in May 2009 against Pittsburgh. Weeks was hit on the left wrist during the Brewers’ 13-inning win Friday. X-rays were negative and Weeks is listed as day to day. “I’m just trying to get a good fastball that I can hit a line drive because I am not a home run hitter,” Maysonet said. “You can see my stats.” Maysonet even got to take a curtain call in front of the sellout crowd, something that really made an impression on him. “It was a great day,” he said. “You go out there and

play hard and try to help your team win. It felt amazing.” Maysonet’s teammates were also thrilled for him. “It was awesome,” said catcher Jonathan Lucroy, who had two hits to continue his recent hot hitting streak. “It’s fun to see a guy like that get a hit and help us win.” Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said Weeks would be back at second base on Sunday if he is feeling better, but he was very pleased with Maysonet’s offensive and defensive contributions. “He had a really nice day,” Roenicke said. “He looked good in the field and had some really nice at-bats.” Roenicke was also very pleased with the performance of starting pitcher Shaun Marcum (2-1), who gave up just one run on three hits and had six strikeouts. After giving up a run in the first he did not allow a runner past second, retiring 10 of the last 11 he faced. “Marcum was very good today,” Roenicke said. “He was changing speeds well and it was fun to watch. He really messes with hitters with his speed changes and the way the ball moves.” It was the second straight win for the Brewers, who beat the Cubs on Friday in a 5-hour game that ended just past midnight. Saturday’s start remained at noon because it was a nationally televised game. Chris Volstad (0-5) pitched

six innings for the Cubs, giving up six runs on nine hits. It was the 18th straight start that Volstad did not record a victory. His last win was July 17, 2011, for Florida. Cubs manager Dale Sveum said Volstad pitched a good game, but it got away from him in the sixth inning. “The slider got him in trouble again,” he said. “That is something we’ve got to work on because it’s a pitch he needs, but it’s getting hit too often and too hard.” The Cubs grabbed a 1-0 lead in the first inning when David DeJesus scored on Starlin Castro’s double-play groundout. The Brewers tied it in the bottom half as Nyjer Morgan came home when R yan Braun got caught in a rundown while trying to steal second base. Milwaukee broke the game open in the sixth inning. Lucroy, who led off with a double, scored on Aramis Ramirez’s fielder’s choice. Corey Hart doubled to the left-field wall and the Cubs walked Travis Ishikawa to load the bases. Maysonet then hit the second pitch from Volstad into the second level in left field.

Mets 9, Marlins 3 MIAMI (AP) — David Wright homered and singled three times in his fourth consecutive multi-hit game Saturday, and R.A. Dickey earned his fifth victory by pitching six innings to help the New York Mets beat the

Miami Marlins 9-3. The Marlins lost for only the second time in their past 11 games, while the Mets have won six of seven. Wright singled home a run in the first inning, hit his fourth homer in the third, singled and scored in the sixth, and added an RBI single in the ninth. Dickey (5-1) gave up two runs and has allowed only seven in his past four starts. The knuckleballer earned a painful RBI when he was hit on his pitching hand in the fifth inning with the bases loaded. He received a visit from a trainer but stayed in the game. Ricky Nolasco (4-1) gave up nine hits, walked three and hit consecutive batters.

Red Sox 4, Indians 1 BOSTON (AP) — Felix Doubront pitched six strong innings and Cody Ross homered to lead Boston to a win over the Cleveland Indians on Saturday night, giving the Red Sox their first winning streak in May. Doubront (3-1) allowed one run on three hits, which was all the Indians would get as relievers Andrew Miller, Vicente Padilla and Alfredo Aceves didn’t allow a baserunner over the final three innings. Aceves got his seventh save with a perfect ninth, striking out Carlos Santana to end it just 2 hours, 30 minutes after it started. Doubront was pulled before the seventh after throwing 109 pitches through six innings. He walked two and struck out five. It was by far the best pitching game in weeks for the Red Sox, who have slumped into last place in the AL East. Boston had allowed four runs or more in every game since a 1-0 shutout of the Chicago White Sox on April 28.

the go-ahead run with a sacrifice fly and the San Diego Padres beat the Philadelphia Phillies and ace Roy Halladay for the second time this season, 2-1 Saturday night. Volquez (2-2) escaped a few jams early in the game and then again in the fifth inning. The righty won his second straight start. He allowed one run and six hits, walked two and struck out five. Halladay is winless in his last five starts, the longest stretch in his Phillies career. His last win was at San Francisco on April 16. The righty allowed two runs and seven hits in seven innings. He walked one and struck out a season-high 10. It was his 15th career double-digit strikeout game.

Pirates 5, Astros 2 PITTSBURGH (AP) — Andrew McCutchen had a solo home run among his four hits, Jose Tabata also homered and the Pittsburgh Pirates beat the Houston Astros 5-2 on Saturday night. Charlie Morton (2-3) rebounded from consecutive poor starts and allowed one earned run in six innings, and the Pirates matched a season high for runs at PNC Park, winning for the first time in their past three games. Jordan Schafer went 2 for 4 with an RBI for Houston, which had won two of its previous three. The Astros have scored 10 runs in their past six games. McCutchen went 4 for 4 with his third home run and three singles. He had three hits in as many at-bats against Houston starter J.A. Happ (2-3), giving him six consecutive hits against lefthanded pitching and improving his average against lefties to .452. Morton had lost each of his two previous outings, allowing 11 runs in those games. He was charged with two runs on seven hits and a walk with no strikeouts.

Ina King

Ina “Bea” King, 84, of Roswell, peacefully passed away Wednesday, May 9, 2012, at her home. Ina will be laid to rest on Monday, May 14, 2012, at 11 a.m., in South Park Cemetery, with Cecil Kimberlin officiating. Family and friends are invited to view Ina on Sunday, May 13, 2012, from 1 to 5 p.m., Anderson-Bethany at Funeral Home. The daughter of Orville and Cora (Beavers) Pendergraft, Ina Bernice Pendergraft was born 12th of 13 children on May 12, 1927, in Kingfisher, Okla. Ina married Herbert King and their adventure began. Ina and Herbert were blessed with five children. As a mother, Ina learned to be a friend, nurse, mediator and confidant to her children. She was wholly and deeply devoted to her family. A wearer of many hats — daughter, sister, wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, friend, ally and the Boss — Ina was always a hard worker. Ina will be remembered as a very strong, independent, stubborn, loving, nonjudgmental person. She was a truly remarkable woman; she touched many lives from doing hair, driving a school bus, and going to dances and bingo. Ina hardly knew a stranger; she always had a smile and hug. She loved to play games, but hated losing. Her favorite games to play were Skip Bo, Yahtzee, and dominoes. Her family will miss her dearly. Ina was preceded in death by her husband Herbert King; parents Orville

and Cora Pendergraft; and numerous brothers and sisters. Those left to cherish Ina’s memory are children, Gertrude “Trudie” Martinelli and her husband Ed, of Espanola, Sue Wilson and her companion Terry Mathews, of Roswell, Ronnie King and his wife Linda of Diamond Springs, Calif., Ginger Scott and her husband Danny, of Artesia, and Brenda Brown, of Roswell; 13 grandchildren; 17 great-grandchildren; brother, Ivan Pendergraft, of Michigan; and numerous nieces and nephews.

Jeffrey Lawton Arnold

Jeffrey Lawton Arnold of Tucson, Ariz., passed from Earth to heaven on Wednesday May 9, 2012. He was 35 years old. He is survived by his parents Ruth and Jim Arnold, of Tucson. He is also survived by his sister and brotherin-law Kristin and Craig Waide, and four nephews, Holden, Noah, Joseph and Samuel Waide, all of Roswell. He has numerous aunts, uncles and cousins, and the Phillips and Waide families have been Jeff's family for more than 20 years. Jef f had a love for life and a positive outlook like none other. He truly lived life to the fullest and didn’t let his circumstances of a nearly lifelong brain tumor (since age 2) and loss of vision define his life. After graduating from high school and college in Madi-


son, Wis., Jeff had many interesting and adventurous jobs. He worked as a radio disc jockey, at Disney World and on the Disney Cruise Line, for the Texas Rangers Baseball Club in Dallas, and for the University of Arizona Athletics Department, leading the group ticket sales department for the past six years. He excelled at every job he ever had. Jef f served as board president of the Southern Arizona Association for the Visually Impaired (SAAVI) for the past three years. He was involved in Victory Church in Tucson and one of his favorite things was his weekly Fellowship of Christian Athletes Bible Study. There was no place Jeff went that he did not make a friend or touch a life. He had true compassion and genuinely loved people and loved life. His smile was genuine, bright and contagious and his wit was quick. He was a true light and, even though he did not have his sight, Jeff had extraordinary vision. It may be said that Jeff lived the life he did, not in spite of his tumor, but because of it — he had a strong drive and made opportunities for himself because he knew he could not count on tomorrow. That is a lesson we may all take from Jeff. Jeff will be missed every day, but we rejoice in the fact that he is with his Savior and is whole and healed and restored. We rest in the truth that he is in heaven and that we will see him again. A service celebrating Jef f’s life will be held Thursday, May 17, 2012, at 2 p.m. at Christ’s Church in Roswell, 2200 N.

Sycamore Ave., with the Rev. Gerry Chavez officiating. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Southern Arizona Association for the Visually Impaired in Tucson, or to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Jeff was a longtime Partner In Hope with St. Jude.

Navajo Code Talker dies at 89 FARMINGTON (AP) — Samuel Tso, a Navajo code talker who campaigned for a Navajo Code Talkers museum and WWII veterans’ center, died Wednesday, the Navajo Nation announced Thursday. The 89-year -old Lukachukai, Ariz., resident died at San Juan Regional Medical Center in Far mington, surrounded by family. Tso, who was vice president of the Navajo Code Talkers Association, had been battling cancer, family said. Bor n in 1922, Tso enlisted in the Marine Corps at age 17 by claiming to be 21 years old. He was sent to Camp Pendleton in California, where he learned to be a code talker. After the war, Tso worked toward becoming a teacher at Utah State University and later got his master’s degree at Arizona State University. Navajo Nation President Ben Shelly ordered the Navajo Nation flag to be flown at half-staf f through Monday. He called Tso a “true Navajo warrior.” “The Navajo Nation has lost another Code Talker and that saddens my heart,” Shelly said in a written statement. “The Code Talkers have brought great pride to our Nation and the loss of Samuel Tso saddens

not only myself, his loss saddens the Navajo Nation.”

Family members said Friday they hope to make Tso’s dream of a museum and a veterans center a reality in the wake of his passing.

“When I talked to my dad, I told him I would make his dream a reality,” Yvonne Tso told The Farmington Daily News.

The code talkers took part in every assault the Marines conducted in the Pacific during World War II. They sent thousands of messages without error on Japanese troop movements, battlefield tactics and other communications critical to the war’s outcome.

The United States military used the code talkers in the South Pacific to send encrypted messages, which never were cracked by Japanese adversaries.

Tso watched the original 29 code talkers leave for war while training. He and his unit learned the second version of the code. “They bounced back between different versions of the code,” said Samuel’s son, Ron Tso.

Family said Samuel Tso loved sharing tales of the code talkers with his family and with audiences nationwide.

What kind of netting should be used to keep the fruit from birds? Q. I have lots of fruit trees loaded with fruit this year. Do you recommend any kind of netting to keep the fruit from the birds? I used netting one year and found a bird had gotten stuck in the netting and died. I threw out all that netting and will not use it again. Is there a kind that you recommend that will not allow birds to get stuck in it? Betty H. A. I think bird netting is a good idea for gardeners with fruit producing plants that are attractive to birds. In choosing a covering net, consider the size of the net. It is important that the net material is large enough to reach to the ground where it may be staked to the

ground in a manner preventing birds from entering the tree from under the net. Another option is to choose a net large enough to reach back to the trunk of the tree where it can be tied, so that birds are again prevented from entering through the base of the covering. If birds get into the net, from below or from any gap in the coverage, they will be trapped inside. They may injure themselves trying to get out, or they may enjoy feasting on your fruit during their captivity. Another consideration is the weight of the netting material. Thicker, heavier material may last longer, but may weigh heavily on the branches of your trees. Lighter nets will put less

stress on the branches. I have not seen any that I would worry would have too great an effect in the wind (catching too much wind and acting as a sail to break branches), but be sure to consider wind-load on the branches supporting the net material. Those with smaller sized openings to protect against small birds may have more of a sail-effect, but most net materials do not appear to have that potential. Finally, remember that

Sunday, May 13, 2012

the netting may provide perching locations for the birds that can then reach through the netting to feast on fruit near the net. Some gardeners try constructing frames to surround the tree, keeping birds from reaching the fruit. Other gardeners choose to share the fruit near the net material with the birds and harvest fruit unblemished by birds from farther inside the netting. That is your choice to make. With dwarf trees or berry vines (grapes,

blackberries, raspberries, and other lower growing plants and vegetable transplants) a temporary frame may make sense and be a reasonable thing to construct to protect your harvest. I observed with some of my plants, that the fruit on the side of trees and vines facing power lines were most heavily attacked by the birds. The birds could sit on the power lines choosing the fruit that they wanted to taste. I tried using flashing repellants (aluminum foil strips and monofilament fishing line) on those sides of the trees. I could not determine with certainty that this was effective, but it seemed to have a slight impact by discouraging birds. Perhaps

that was wishful thinking on my part.

Traveling on business or vacation, watch out for this scam!

A friend sent the following to me for possible use in this column, and I am appreciative. It is, after all, the summer season and many of us will be travelling and staying in hotels and motels perhaps more than usual. So here is one more concern, one more thing about which we must be diligent in a world where someone will attempt to steal our identity! Here’s the scam as it was sent to me: We arrive at our hotel and check in at the front desk. When checking in, we give the front desk our credit card, which will be used for all

the charges for the room. T ired from a long day of travel, we are ready to take our shoes of f and just relax a little. About that time, the front desk receives a call for our room number and dutifully passes the call on to us. When the phone rings in the room, we answer and the person on the other end says something like this: “This is the front desk. When you checked in tonight, we came across a problem with your charge card information. I would really appreciate it if you would read me your credit card number and expiration date. Also

please verify the three-digit number which appears on the back of your card.” Well, we are tired and perhaps not thinking too clearly, and so we go ahead and give the caller the information. After all, they sounded very professional, and thus they must

be hotel management. However, the call did not, in fact, come from the front desk, but rather from someone calling from outside. We have been scammed! We have been the target of identity theft. If you ever encounter this problem when you travel, certainly you must never give any such information to an unknown caller. Just tell them that “I’ll be right down to the front desk to clear this up.” Then, go to the front desk and ask if there was a problem. If there was none, be sure to infor m the manager as to what has happened. The man-

ager will want to know that scammers have targeted his or her hotel and is attempting to scam guests. Having read the above situation, I thought it would be interesting to check out, which is a pretty good way to verify certain situations and urban legends. There are definitely some varying opinions as I read through it, but I am comfortable that a scam such as this could easily happen. It is evident that hotel management could train their front desk employees to help avoid this situation. But it is absolutely mandatory that we individ-

ually do not ever let our “identity” guard down. Even when we are tired from a long day’s travel and even when we are on vacation, we have to be diligent in protecting our integrity from those who would do us harm!

Roswell Community Little Theatre presents Neil Simon’s Proposals, directed by Vonnie Goss. The play opens Friday, May 25, at 7:30 p.m. at RCLT’s new theater at 1717 South Union. There will be Friday, Saturday and Sunday per for mances through June 3. Proposals is a romantic comedy-drama, a memory play guided by the late Clemma Diggins (Alice Wagoner), who was the devoted housekeeper/nanny for Burt Hines (Mike Smith) and his daughter Josie (Shelby Halvorson). Clemma looks back on the events of a summer in the 1950s, when nine people converged on their tranquil

mountain summer cottage, and not so tranquilly sorted out their tangled lives and loves. The plot of Proposals revolves around Josie, who breaks off her engagement to Ken Nor man (Felix Velasquez), but also rekindles an old flame, Ray Dolenz (Eric Bradshaw). An added problem develops when Vinnie Bavasi (Edward Permuy), a Mafiaraised young man from Miami, arrives unexpectedly, and soon falls for the lovely, young model, Sammii. In addition, Burt has to deal with the visit of his ex-wife Annie Roberts (Andrea James), and Clemma’s husband, Lewis Barnett (Leroy Meekins), who returns for the first time in

seven years.

Changing the subject, I want to express my personal appreciation and that of the Roswell SAFE Coalition to Martha Urquides-Staab, who has been the recipient of my 500 word discourses every week since April 2011. It has been our pleasure and we wish her “fair winds and a following sea!”

Honors event to award activist Frank Sanchez VANESSA KAHIN VISTAS EDITOR PHOTOS BY REY BERRONES

During his teenaged years and early twenties, Sanchez saw a need in his immediate community—and the efforts he set forth to change his immediate surroundings affected a nation. “For me, it’s a calling more than a career,” Sanchez said of his work for equal rights. For Community Foundation of Chaves County Executive Director Susie Russell, the choice to honor Sanchez during this year’s Community Foundation Honors event was self-evident. “The purpose of the event is to honor (an individual) for their philanthropic efforts in Chaves County, and (for) giving back to our community,” she said. CFCC board members discuss possible honorees before deciding on one individual whom they feel exemplifies community service and commitment. Sanchez is being honored for decades of service to end social injustice throughout the state. Russell said there’s a twofold purpose to honor Sanchez; and the CFCC hopes to fulfill both during its upcoming Community Foundation Honors event. First, CFCC coordinators aim to bring attention to Sanchez’s varied contributions to racial and class equality. Second, they hope to continue Sanchez’s legacy and that of other community organizers through their charitable efforts. Known for hosting lavish events such as the Angel Gala in December, and fundraisers such as the AMR-Steve Lovato Memorial Scholarship Golf Tournament, the CFCC will soon host an honors event that combines elements of both a gala and a fundraiser. The event will have food catered by Tinnie Mercantile Store & Deli, a cash bar provided by Peppers Grill & Bar, and music courtesy of Ritmo Latino. The honors celebration, which has attracted hundreds of attendees in past years, will take place June 21 from 6-8 p.m. at the Anderson Museum of Contemporary Art, 409 E. College Blvd. A senior program officer for the Needmor Fund, Sanchez was born and raised in Roswell. A 1968 graduate of Goddard High, he attended Eastern New Mexico University in Portales and completed a bachelor’s degree in political science at Colegio Tlatelolco, once a Chicano college in Denver. While in high school and college, Sanchez saw a need to reform his immediate community after witnessing discrimination against Latinos. When he started college in Portales, he noted, “It was a very segregated community. The education system … was very unequal.” There were no Mexican-American teachers or administrators in the schools, he said. This led Sanchez to organize the Chicano Youth Association, circa 1969. Sanchez’s work with the Chicano Youth Association was instrumental in the landmark case, Serna v. Portales School System, which set a national precedent for bilingual education. Sanchez also saw a need at his first college campus. He co-founded the Association to Help Our Raza Advance, a student organization that helped create a culturally relevant Mexican-American curriculum. AHORA also worked toward recruiting minority students to ENMU. Another pivotal lawsuit—Sanchez v. King—helped establish voting rights for Latinos and Native Americans in the early 1980s. The focus of the lawsuit was the state’s system of gerrymandering the minority voting population. “I was one of the lead plaintiffs in the first successful voting rights lawsuit in New Mexico,” Sanchez noted. The lawsuit successfully challenged a redistricting plan that diluted the impact of the minority vote. The lawsuit marked the first time that the Voting Rights Act was successfully litigated in New Mexico. “Before, all elections were at-large elections,” Sanchez said. An entire town would vote for specific ward representatives, for example. Now, there are single member district wards, and those who live within a ward are the ones who elect an official that will represent them.

Sanchez also saw inequality in health care provision and accessibility to the legal system. He co-founded the first health care clinic in Hagerman, known at the time as La Clinica Rural. He also co-founded health care clinics in Roswell and Eddy County. Sanchez co-founded the Con Alma Health Foundation, the largest health foundation in New Mexico. Con Alma, which just celebrated its 10th anniversary, has awarded about $10 million in grants to organizations that promote health and well-being across the state. At the age of 36, Sanchez co-founded Southern New Mexico Legal Services. Around the same time, he spearheaded an Immigration Services Center to help adjust the immigrant status of more than 1,500 families. In 2007, Sanchez received an honorary doctorate of Humane Letters from the University of New Mexico for his contributions to social justice and equality throughout the Southwest. But this, along with the CFCC’s award, is a recognition that makes Sanchez feel humbled, honored, and more a part of his community than ever. “I don’t really consider this my award—it’s our award,” Sanchez said, referring to those who have helped him initiate programs and actions that have in turn helped the community. “It’s a credit to all the folks I’ve worked with.” Not unlike Sanchez’s work to improve society, CFCC supports local nonprofits that directly improve life in Chaves County. “All the money we do raise (and) give out stays in Chaves County,” Russell said. She said that in the past nine years, the CFCC has given about $97,000 to 48 nonprofits in Chaves County. All but two of the organizations that the CFCC helps are not in Chaves County: Casa Esperanza and the Ronald McDonald House, both in Albuquerque. Russell said that when the CFCC helps these organizations, funds go directly to the Chaves County residents that use their services. The first Community Foundation Honors event was held in 2010. The event honored Claudette Foster, one of the founding members of the CFCC. The 2011 honoree was Justus Bowe Jr., also a CFCC board member. “The honors event is to raise money for our endowment, which is critical to our work,” Russell said. The endowment allows the CFCC to continue its support of projects that improve life in Chaves County, such as community developments, health services, and the arts. The biggest event the CFCC hosts is the annual Angel Gala—a holiday season live and silent auction event that features items such as jewelry, extravagant vacation packages, wine and cheese tasting, and artwork, to name a few. Truly a community effort, the Angel Gala features items donated by businesses and individuals. Proceeds from the event help fund grants that are in turn given to nonprofit organizations in Chaves County. Springtime usually means a community concert fundraising event, but this year, the CFCC helped coordinate the AMR-Steve Lovato Memorial Scholarship Golf Tournament instead. The scholarship has already raised enough funds to help locals attend college to study to be a paramedic or an emergency medical technician, just like Lovato, who passed away in 2002. The golf tournament was instrumental in raising funds for the scholarship, which is an endowment in the hands of CFCC. “We’re so grateful to our sponsors, and to all those that support the Community Foundation and continue to do so with our events,” Russell said. Tickets for the Community Foundation Honors event are $25 per person, and those interested in attending the event must RSVP. For more information, call 622-8900 or email

Girl’s sadness over lack of prom date reflection of culture

Q: My teenage daughter wasn’t asked to the prom, and she’s devastated. As a father, what can I do to encourage her? Jim: First of all, try to avoid making a big issue of her disappointment. Prom night is one of the most overhyped experiences of adolescence. Your daughter’s friends, the media and the prevailing culture have all told her that she’s missing out on the biggest evening of her life, and it probably won’t do much good to try to convince her otherwise. But it’s just as unhelpful to say or do anything that might foster or prolong her melancholy mood. That’s not to say that you should ignore or make light of her feelings. The emotions she’s going through are very real, and they have nothing to do with the

intrinsic value of the prom. They’re primarily related to her sense of self-worth. So be sensitive. Don’t try to apply a quick-fix solution. Give her time to be sad and withdrawn. Back off if you get the impression that she’s unwilling to discuss the matter. When she does come to the point of opening up, take time to listen. Reaffirm her as a person, reinforce the importance of character as opposed to mere popularity and social standing, and remind her that she will have something to offer a fortunate young man when the time is right. And as opportunities arise, help her gain a more realistic view of events like the prom. On a more practical level, you might consider recommending an alternate activity for the evening. If some

of her friends are free, host a movie night. If everybody else is at the prom, propose a “Dad date” at a location of her choosing. If she decides to stay home, encourage her to call a friend far away (and don’t worry about the minutes). And whatever you do, take pains to reassure her of your love. Q: Our 7-year-old is negative all the time. He’s the youngest of four boys, and we always try to encourage him and build up his selfesteem. Nothing seems to be enough. How can we

help him to be more positive? Juli: Helping your son become more positive may have less to do with making him feel better about himself and more to do with how he interacts with the rest of the world. The positive-thinking, self-esteem movement has shown, in many cases, to be doing more harm than good for kids. Building a child’s selfesteem only through encouragement can feel like blowing up a balloon that has a hole in it. No matter how much air you put in, it

will still leak out. T ry getting your son involved in helping and encouraging others through a family mission trip or volunteering at a local nonprofit organization. This will do two things that build genuine self-esteem and self-respect: instill gratitude and show him that he can make a difference. When your son sees others who have difficulties greater than his own, it will help him realize how much he has to be grateful for. Meeting people who live with much less than he does is far more powerful than words that encourage gratefulness. You can’t really complain about having brown eyes when you meet someone who is blind. Your son will also see that his efforts to help others are a unique contribu-

tion to the world. You won’t have to persuade him that he is talented or smart. Seeing that he’s helped someone less fortunate will be enough to convince him that his life can make a difference.

Bank stocks hurt after surprise $2B JPMorgan loss Roswell Daily Record

WASHINGTON (AP) — JPMorgan Chase stock lost more than 8 percent of its value Friday after the bank, the largest in the United States, revealed a monster $2 billion loss in a trading group that manages the risks the bank takes with its own money. More than three years after the financial crisis, the surprise disclosure quickly revived debate about whether banks can be trusted to handle risk on their own. Sen. Carl Levin, D-Mich., chair of a subcommittee that investigated the crisis, said the loss was “just the latest evidence that what banks call ‘hedges’ are often risky bets that socalled ‘too big to fail’ banks have no business making.” The head of the Securities and Exchange Commission, Mary Schapiro, told reporters that the agency was focused on the JPMorgan loss but declined to comment further. Some analysts were skeptical that the trading was designed to protect against JPMorgan’s own losses, as CEO Jamie Dimon contended Thursday in a conference call with stock analysts and reporters. The analysts said the bank appeared to have been betting for its own benefit, a practice known as “proprietary trading.” Dimon said the type of trading that led to the $2

billion loss would not be banned by the so-called Volcker rule, which is still being written and is expected to ban certain types of trading by banks with their own money. The Federal Reserve said last month that it would begin enforcing that rule in July 2014. Bank executives, including Dimon, have argued for weaker rules and broader exemptions. JPMorgan has been a strong critic of provisions that would have made this loss less likely, said Michael Greenberger, former enforcement director of the Commodity Futures T rading Commission, which regulates some derivatives. “These instruments are not regularly and efficiently priced, and a company can wake up one day, as AIG did in 2008, and find out they’re in a terrific hole. It can just blow up overnight,” said Greenberger, a professor at the University of Maryland. On Friday, bank stocks were hammered in Britain and the United States, partly because of fear that the JPMorgan loss would lead to tougher regulation of financial institutions. JPMorgan stock was down 8.2 percent in early trading on Wall Street. It was down more than $3, and by itself shaved 25 points off the Dow Jones industrial average, which

A JPMorgan Chase building is shown, Friday, in New York. JPMorgan Chase, the largest bank in the United States, said Thursday that it lost $2 billion in the past six weeks in a trading portfolio designed to hedge against risks the company takes with its own money.

was up about 30 points on the day. In Britain, shares of Barclays and Royal Bank of Scotland were down more than 2 percent. JPMorgan stock was the hardest hit, but its American counterparts suffered, too: Morgan Stanley was down 4 percent, and Goldman Sachs and Citigroup each lost more than 3 percent. Stock analysts said that bank stocks were hurt mostly because of regulatory fear, not because there was reason to believe other banks would discover similar losses. “The regulatory and political environment is already

a headwind, and clearly this doesn’t help,” Deutsche Bank said in a note to clients. The trading loss was an embarrassment for JPMorgan, which came through the 2008 financial crisis in much better health than its peers. It kept clear of risky investments that hurt many other banks. The loss came over the past six weeks in a portfolio of the complex financial instruments known as derivatives, and in a division JPMorgan says was supposed to control its exposure to risk in the financial markets. “The portfolio has proved to be riskier, more volatile

and less effective as an economic hedge than we thought,” Dimon told reporters on Thursday. “There were many errors, sloppiness and bad judgment.”

Bloomberg News reported in April that a single JPMorgan trader in London, known in the bond market as “the London whale,” was making such large trades that he was moving prices in the $10 trillion market.

Dimon said the losses were “somewhat related” to that story, but seemed to suggest that the problem was broader. Dimon also said the company had “acted too defensively,” and

should have looked into the division more closely. The Wall Street Journal reported last month that JPMorgan had invested heavily in an index of credit-default swaps, insurance-like products that protect against default by bond issuers. Hedge funds were betting that the index would lose value, forcing JPMorgan to sell investments at a loss. The losses came in part because financial markets have been far more volatile since the end of March. Partly because of the $2 billion trading loss, JPMorgan said it expects a loss of $800 million this quarter for a segment of its business known as corporate and private equity. It had planned on a profit for the segment of $200 million. The loss is expected to hurt JPMorgan’s overall ear nings for the second quarter, which ends June 30. “We will admit it, we will learn from it, we will fix it, and we will move on,” he said. Dimon spoke in a hastily scheduled conference call with stock analysts. Reporters were allowed to listen. JPMorgan is trying to unload the portfolio in question in a “responsible” manner, Dimon said, to minimize the cost to its shareholders. Analysts said more losses were possible depending on market conditions.

American Airlines agrees to study merger idea Wal-Mart is beaten yet again DALLAS (AP) — American Airlines says it is agreeing with creditors to consider potential mergers while it is still under bankruptcy protection. American parent AMR Corp. says that the company and its bankruptcy creditors agreed to develop “potential consolidation scenarios,” but that didn’t mean it would pursue a deal with any particular party. Still, Friday’s announcement suggested that events could be moving faster than AMR had expected since US Airways turned up the pressure for merger talks. AMR CEO Thomas Horton has said for months that he wanted American, the nation’s third-biggest airline, to emerge from bankruptcy protection as an independent company. A bankruptcy judge granted AMR the exclusive right through late September to present a reorganization plan to the court. Politicians including Texas’ senior U.S. senator appealed for everyone else to leave AMR alone. None of that deterred US Airways, a smaller competitor — but a profitable one. US Airways has

“We’ve run (newspaper) ads and done everything we could to tell the company to consider every option, and one is the possible sale or merger,” he said. “It should be explored now rather than later.”

lobbied AMR’s creditors and lined up support from American’s three unions for a takeover. On Friday hundreds of pilots and other employees marched into AMR headquarters in Fort Worth, Texas, and in New York to deliver a message of “no confidence” in AMR management. The unions believe that a combined company would cut fewer jobs and stand a better chance at competing with industry leaders United and Delta.

Beverly K. Goulet, AMR’s chief restructuring officer, said Friday’s agreement to work with the bankruptcy creditors committee on potential merger scenarios represented no change in AMR’s belief that its fate will be decided by company management, directors and creditors. She said the agreement “does not in any way suggest that a transaction of any kind or with any particular party will be pursued.” US Airways, the nation’s

fifth-biggest airline, issued a statement late Friday praising AMR’s decision. It said a combination would be best for both companies’ employees and customers, as well as for AMR creditors and US Airways investors. Jamie Horwitz, a spokesman for the Transport Workers Union, which represents mechanics and bag handlers at American, said he was pleased American would at least consider a merger while still in bankruptcy.

Standard & Poor’s, citing a Bloomberg News report earlier Friday, said news that AMR would consider a merger as an alternative to its standalone restructuring plan made it more likely that US Airways will acquire or merge with AMR.

S&P analyst Jim Corridore said a merger would fix US Airways’ weak international network and give it size to compete with bigger rivals. S&P reiterated its “Buy” rating on US Airways stock, which rose 39 cents, or 3.6 percent, to close at $11.32.

Helped by talk of taking over AMR, US Airways shares have more than doubled in 2012, rising much faster than stock in competitors United or Delta.

Facebook wraps up IPO road show in Silicon Valley PALO ALTO, Calif. (AP) — Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and other executives addressed about 200 prospective investors Friday at a hotel luncheon in Silicon Valley. Friday’s event was the last of the bigger road show events that Facebook Inc. is holding ahead of its initial public offering of stock, which is expected late next week. The luncheon was held at the Crown Plaza Hotel in Palo Alto, Calif. Zuckerberg arrived in a caravan of black SUVs and got in the hotel’s back entrance. He gave prospective investors a 10-minute presentation. That was followed by a 35-minute question-and-answer session with Zuckerberg, Chief Operating Officer

Sheryl Sandberg and Chief Financial Of ficer David Ebersman.

The event followed similar meetings in New York on Monday and Boston on Tuesday. Facebook will hold some smaller, private meetings in the coming week but nothing as big as those three. The company also has posted a version of its road show presentation online.

Facebook Inc. is expected to price its IPO on Thursday and begin trading on the Nasdaq Stock Market on Friday under the ticker symbol “FB.” The offering could value the company near $100 billion.

NEW YORK (AP) — In business, you’re only as good as your last good deed. Wal-Mart, the world’s largest retailer, in recent years has tried to repair a reputation that’s been damaged by decades of criticism and legal troubles. Community activists have blamed it for damaging the neighborhoods where it builds its stores. Labor groups have lambasted it for not treating its workers well. And politicians have called it a poor steward of the environment. Wal-Mart has been doing things like offering employees better health care coverage and working with its suppliers to reduce environmental waste. Now, allegations that Wal-Mart paid millions of dollars in bribes to of ficials in Mexico threaten to derail its efforts. The accusations highlight how difficult it is for a company as big and powerful as Wal-Mart to dig itself out of a pile of bad publicity. As history shows, the discounter’s low-income customers continue to shop at the retailer even when it’s having image problems. But the fallout from the latest accusations could become a distraction for the company at a time when it’s battling growing competition. The U.S. and Mexican governments reportedly are investigating the chain. Wal-Mart’s stock is down almost 5 percent since the allegations surfaced. The company and top executives are being sued by angry investors. And some shareholders are planning to vote against the re-election of several board members at Wal-Mart’s annual meeting next month. “This is a devastating blow to their reputation,” says Jonathan Low, cofounder and partner of Predictiv, LLC, which advises corporations on their image although the firm declines to give examples because of confidentiality agreements. “This undercuts all the initiatives they made in many areas.”

DEAR CONCERNED AUNT: Although Amy was old enough to get her license, she is not yet mature enough to handle the responsibility that goes along with driving. For her sake I hope you will impress upon her mother that LIVES could depend upon her exerting control over her daughter. Many states restrict conditions under which a teen may drive a car. In addition, many parents draft a driving contract that stipulates things like what kind of grade-point average their teenager must maintain to keep his or her driving privileges, limiting the number of passengers he or she can transport and certain distance limits. Other restrictions can be added at the parents’ option. A version of the following contract has appeared in my column before: I ( ), agree to the stipulations


DEAR ABBY: My niece, “Amy,” got her driver’s license last November. Since then she has been stopped six times for violations. Unfortunately, she wasn’t ticketed for any of them — just given warnings. Who knows how many other times she should have been ticketed? When Amy told me about it, she acted like it was a joke and something she was proud of. Her parents are divorced and her father spoils her beyond reason. He gives her whatever she wants, including buying her a new car. Her mother has little control over her. My niece doesn’t seem to under-

O’Keeffe’s connection with the outdoors on display Roswell Daily Record

ALBUQUERQUE(AP) — Georgia O’Keeffe could handle the inhospitable conditions of the American Southwest, with its intense sun and rugged terrain. Her clothes tell part of the story — jeans worn at the knees and sneakers scuffed. Her handwritten letters tell even more about the dust, the biting gnats, unpredictable rainstorms and the repeated struggles to get to some of New Mexico’s loneliest spots. The items along with camping gear and snapshots taken by the artist’s friends during some of their outdoor adventures are part of a yearlong exhibition that opened Friday at the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum in Santa Fe. The show highlights the stretches of high desert she called “the faraway” and the landscape paintings they inspired. “The unique environment of the Southwest was always a muse for her and it continued to offer her boundless inspiration until the end of her life. But how she did it and how difficult it was is something that we don’t really often talk

about,” said Carolyn Kastner, the museum’s associate curator. The museum’s curators have tur ned one gallery into a slice of northwestern New Mexico’s badlands with a panoramic photograph of the area that O’Keeffe called the Black Place, where clay hills are colored various shades of black and gray. The tent O’Keef fe and friend Maria Chabot used during their 1944 camping trip at the Black Place is on display along with their lanter ns and cooking equipment. O’Keeffe described it as an “untouched lonely feeling place” that continually drew her back. Barbara Buhler L ynes, the museum’s curator and director of the O’Keef fe Research Center, said the artist was able to develop a personal relationship with the Southwest through her camping and rafting trips. It was through those experiences O’Keeffe also realized her independent spirit and sense of adventure, Lynes said. While the artwork on the

gallery’s walls can be mistaken for none other than O’Keef fe, visitors can expect some surprises, Kastner said. Among them are a couple of paintings, photographs and other documentation related to a 10-day raft trip O’Keeffe took down the Colorado River through Glen Canyon when she was 74. She made the trip more than once, knowing that it would never look the same once the dam was built and the canyons were flooded to form Lake Powell. Kastner pointed to one image of O’Keeffe by photographer Todd Webb. “It shows her beautiful artist hands, but they’re at work, paddling a rubber raft down the river. It’s extraordinary,” she said. Without modern amenities like GPS or four-wheel drive, O’Keeffe would set off alone or sometimes with friends to find her inspiration. There are stories of her bumping along primitive roads and finding refuge from the harsh sunlight in the back of her 1920s Ford Sedan. She would take out the driver’s

The show also coincides with a first-time opportunity for artists to paint, sketch and draw on the grounds of O’Keeffe’s adobe estate in Abiquiu.

seat and turn the passenger seat around. It was just enough room to set up a 30-by-40-inch canvas. “I think it shows this amazing personal will and it was as grand as the landscape she was painting,” Kastner said. “Just to do that was an amazing effort and then to do it again and again.” In a June 3, 1944, letter,

O’Keeffe talked about how rough conditions were at the Black Place. “We came home very dusty. It is a job to get brushed and shaken off,” she wrote. The exhibition — “Georgia O’Keeffe and The Faraway: Nature and Image” — was organized by the O’Keef fe Museum and the National Cowgirl Museum

Prompted by the suggestion of an employee who is also an artist, museum officials decided to share views of the Chama River Valley from the vantage point O’Keeffe would have had from her driveway and garden. The one-day event is scheduled for May 14. The museum is also considering a second art session in the fall.

Agapita Judy Lopez, the museum’s director of historic properties, said it’s easy to see why O’Keeffe eventually settled in Abiquiu and nearby Ghost Ranch. “Just the beautiful lighting, the views, the colors — it’s all inspirational,” she said.

Eiffel or eyesore? London’s Orbit tower completed Meat chips LONDON (AP) — Critics say it looks like a roller coaster gone badly awry. Fans say it’s a landmark to rival the Eiffel Tower. London got a towering new venue Friday, as authorities announced completion of the Orbit, a 115-meter (377- foot) looped and twisting steel tower beside London’s new Olympic Stadium that will give visitors panoramic views over the city. Some critics have called the ruby-red lattice of tubular steel an eyesore. British tabloids have labeled it “the Eye-ful Tower,” ‘’the Godzilla of public art” and worse. But artist Anish Kapoor and engineer Cecil Balmond, who designed the tower, find it beautiful. Belmond, who described the looping structure as “a curve in space,” said he thought people would be won over by it. “St. Paul’s (Cathedral) was hated when it was begun,” he said. “Everyone wanted a spire” — but now the great church’s dome is universally loved. He said if a groundbreaking structure works “it starts to do something to you and your concept of beauty changes.” Kapoor noted that Paris’s iconic Eiffel Tower was considered “the most tremendously ugly object” by many when it was first built. “There will be those who love it and those who hate

it, and that’s OK,” Kapoor said of the tower, whose full name is the ArcelorMittal Orbit, after the steel company that stumped up most of the 22.7 million pound ($36.5 million) cost. “I think it’s awkward,” Kapoor said — considering that a compliment. “It has its elbows sticking out in a way. ... It refuses to be an emblem.” A little awkwardness is to be expected when you ask an artist to design a building. Kapoor, a past winner of art’s prestigious Turner Prize, is known for

large-scale installations like “Marsyas” — a giant blood-red PVC membrane that was displayed at London’s Tate Moder n in 2002 — and “The Bean,” a 110-ton (100-metric ton) stainless steel sculpture in Chicago’s Millennium Park. Even for him, though, the scale of the Orbit is monumental. He says the structure can only truly be appreciated from inside — something most of the public will not have the chance to do until 2014, when it reopens as the centerpiece

of a brand-new park on the site of the 2012 London Olympic Park. Before that, it will be open to ticketholders for this summer’s Olympic and Paralympic Games, whop can ride the elevator to the top at a cost of 15 pounds ($22). Kapoor said visitors would enter a “dark and heavy” steel canopy at base before emerging into the light high above ground, where a wraparound viewing deck and a pair of huge concave mirrors create “a kind of observatory, looking out at

SAN ANTONIO (AP) — The American taxpayer may be getting into the movie business. In a real-life case of drugs and extortion that could itself make a pretty good screenplay, federal prosecutors have forced a Mexican drug trafficker to turn over his stake in a planned prequel to Mel Gibson’s 2004 blockbuster “The Passion of the Christ.” If the movie gets made, the U.S. government will receive a cut of the profits. Some of the big names behind the Hollywood project include megachurch pastor Joel Osteen, who had no idea about the script’s unsavory backstory. “When you get a script, you just don’t think to say ‘Hey, was this script ever tied to a Mexican cartel?”’ said Donald Ilof f, a spokesman for Osteen’s Lakewood Church in

Houston. The script was already being handled by a legitimate production company when Osteen got involved. Jorge Vazquez Sanchez pleaded guilty this week in federal court to extortion and money laundering in a deal that required him to give up a 10 percent stake in future profits of “Mary, Mother of Christ,” which is scheduled to begin production this year and includes Osteen as an executive producer. The script was written by the same person behind “The Passion of the Christ,” which became a worldwide smash and earned more than $611 million. Aloe Entertainment, the Los Angeles-based production company that paid more than $900,000 for the script, said it knew nothing about Vazquez, who was sentenced to seven years in prison.

Had Vazquez kept his stake, “we don’t know what would have happened,” the company said in a statement. “We have assembled an amazing team to bring it to the big screen. Now the American taxpayers can be part of this incredible project.” The screenwriter, Benedict Fitzgerald, had to give control of the script to a company called Macri Inc. after it foreclosed on a loan to Fitzgerald, said Richard Rosenthal, attorney for Aloe. Then Vazquez and one of his co-defendants extorted Macri’s owner, a San Antonio businessman named Arturo Madrigal, to wrest the script away. At one point, the conspirators even kidnapped Madrigal’s brother in Guadalajara, Mexico, according to court documents. Vazquez, a Mexican citizen identified in court doc-

uments as a drug trafficker who laundered money, acquired the screenplay in 2008. Aloe, known at the time as Proud Mary Entertainment, then paid one of Vazquez’s co-defendants $925,000 for the script, believing it was held by a San Antonio real estate mogul. Before the company issued a payment, Aloe executives hired an entertainment copyright attorney who spent more than three months researching the screenplay’s origins. Federal prosecutors contacted them last year seeking documents for the transaction. When prosecutors moved to seize Vazquez’s assets, the stake he had retained in the film’s profits was included. Vazquez’s lawyer, Donald Flanary, said his client did not contest the forfeiture. If the movie becomes a

London.” “It’s as if one is in an instrument for looking,” Kapoor said. London Olympic organizers hope the Orbit, which can accommodate up to 5,000 visitors a day, will become a major tourist attraction. It is, they note proudly, the tallest sculpture in Europe — and 22 meters (72 feet) higher than the Statue of Liberty. On a clear day, views from its observation deck extend for 32 kilometers (20 miles) across London and the green hills beyond. The tower will be at the heart of a new 227hectare (560-acre) park, the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, that will include a lush river valley, biking trails and a treelined promenade. It is due to open in stages starting in July 2013 and finishing in early 2014. London Mayor Boris Johnson takes credit for pitching the idea of a tower to steel baron Lakshmi Mittal at the World Economic Forum in Switzerland in 2009. He is a huge fan of the finished product. “It is a genuine Kapoor,” Johnson said. “It has all the enigmatic qualities of some of his great pieces.” And he believes other Londoners will come to love it, too. “I think so,” he said, then paused. “In the end.”

US taxpayers could get a cut of ‘Passion’ film prequel

reality, it will probably be “the first time that a major motion picture was made in which 10 percent of the profits went to the American taxpayers,” Rosenthal said. “It would be an incredibly unique story.” The case was first reported by the San Antonio Express-News.

Prosecutors alleged that Vazquez and others laundered millions of dollars in drug proceeds by funneling the money through various currency exchanges, bank accounts and real estate ventures in the U.S. and Mexico. Vazquez was arrested in late 2010 in Chicago.

Osteen’s Lakewood Church signed onto the project last year.

“It’s a beautiful script,” Iloff said. “I’m so saddened that it was tainted this way. I hope that it doesn’t slow it down.”

NEW YORK (AP) — Chocolate dog food. Old garden hose. Weirdly fishy. Take a panel of seven foodies and ply them with with exotic versions of popular American snacks from around the world, and these are the reactions you get. Tentative nibbles and scrunched noses. The taste testers gathered recently at the headquarters of The Associated Press in New York and represented varying levels of culinary pedigree. They included food bloggers, famed French pastry chef Jacques Torres and Marilyn Haggerty, an 85year -old North Dakota newspaper columnist whose high praise of the Olive Garden went viral earlier this year. A New York fourth-grader and self-proclaimed junk food aficionado rounded out the group. The spread of international snacks didn’t consist of any barbecue-flavored Lay’s chips or black-andwhite Oreo cookies. Instead, the menu included “Forest Mushroom” and “Grilled Meat” Lay’s from Russia, fruity Oreos from China and lemon-peppered flavored Tang drink from Saudi Arabia. The reactions were mixed. Haggerty, who says she never met a potato chip she didn’t like, struggled to find something nice to say about the Lay’s from Russia. She thought that the “Pickled Cucumber” chips tasted like an “old garden hose.” Her verdict on the “Red Caviar” chips was a tad more positive. “If I didn’t have anything else I’d like these,” Haggerty said, noting a weirdly fishy after taste. She took several more bites just to make sure. Meanwhile, Alyssa Shelasky, a New York magazine food blogger, declared the “Crab” chips to be “food poisoning.” Pastry king Torres gave his seal of approval to the “Forest Mushroom” chips, which got the best reviews overall. “It actually smells like mushroom and it tastes a little bit like mushroom,” Torres said. “It’s surprising.” Torres also noted that flavors like “Grilled Meat” and “Red Caviar” were cooked up specifically for Russians, whose tastes differ dramatically from Americans. So to better gauge the authenticity, he suggested that the AP provide real caviar the next time around for comparison’s sake.

Alaska man plans year on uninhabited island

ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — Charles Baird is going off the grid for a year. The 40-year-old oil company employee and filmmaker from Anchorage will move to the mostly uninhabited Latouche Island in Alaska’s Prince William Sound at the end of May, completing a dream he’s been contemplating for 17 years. Baird will build a 12x12 shed to shelter him from the elements, and he plans to hunt and fish and fend off an occasional black bear during his sojourn to the Alaska wilderness. He’ll be incommunicado, only allowing himself to send short messages out via a satellite uplink to f a c e and no way to receive any in. He won’t even know who won the November presidential election for six months. He calls his experiment more moder n-day homesteading than a survival game, but he’s heading into the adventure wellarmed. “I may see some hunters and fishermen come by but otherwise I will be on my own, just me and my dog,” he said. Latouche Island is a narrow strip of land (12 miles long, 3 miles wide) located about 100 miles southwest of the port city of Valdez.

Like many islands in Prince William Sound, people digging into the beach there can still find oil from the 1989 Exxon Valdez spill. The now abandoned Latouche city site once was home to 4,000 people, thanks to copper mining. The mine closed in 1930, and now the island is dotted with occasional seasonal cabins and not much else. The island is mostly used for subsistence hunting. Kate and Andy McLaughlin live in Chenega Bay, a village six miles away on Evans Island, and own a cabin on Latouche. Kate McLaughlin doesn’t know Baird, but has heard his story many times. In fact, she’s written a book about people coming to Alaska to live the remote lifestyle and is in the process of trying to find a publisher. “We’ve seen several people of his ilk try to come out and say, ‘We’re going to build a cabin, we’re going to live out here and do it,”’ she said. “It’s tough.” Some abandoned supplies from those people making earlier attempts can still be found strewn on the beach. challenges of The Latouche Island are numerous, and foremost is the weather. “You’re fighting the cold

or the mold,” McLaughlin said of the seemingly constant precipitation, snow and rain. Baird said the island has anywhere from 80-120 inches of snow in a typical winter, along with 70 inches of rain a year. The McLaughlins’ twostory cabin on the beach had snow up to the roof this winter. “It’s wet, things don’t dry out,” said Dave Janka, who owns Auklet Charter Services in Cordova. “You get lots of snow.” Much like Cordova, he called Latouche Island “paradise with rain.”

“Heavy weather is going to be a constant companion,” said RJ Kopchak, a Cordova businessman and former commercial fisherman. “That’s what happens there.” Another problem? Black bears. There’s a large bear population on the island, and McLaughlin says they “love to get into trouble.” Baird said he’ll be safe from the bears. He’ll carry a .44 with him at all times, has a shotgun “and a few other weapons, as well.” The dog will also alert him to any predators. There are building restrictions on the unin-

habited island, Baird said, so he will have to construct his makeshift cabin without digging into the ground for a foundation. He plans to have lumber delivered to build his cabin, which will be located about a third of a mile from the beach, about 150 feet up a hill. He’ll have plentiful fishing opportunities. “The nice thing about the ocean is twice a day you’ve got a dinner table set out for you,” Janka said. The challenges don’t faze Baird, who is ex-military, except perhaps for one. “Probably the biggest challenge is the isolation,” he said, adding it was an issue for some of his classmates in an Air Force Academy survival training course. Some “did experience hallucinations and even group delusions, just minor things. But it is kind of a concern, being alone that long,” he said. He said he’s worked with psychologists at Harvard and the University of Chicago, talking through the things he can expect, like nightmares. “I think I’ll be OK, I’ve done a lot of work on my own, and I’ll also have a dog, which probably will help keep things stabilized,” he said. He also plans to keep

busy by reading, taking a couple thousand books on an electronic reader. He’ll keep it charged with wind and solar systems he’s taking with him.

Baird is planning to keep a diary, which could be turned into a book. He’s also thinking of writing an instructional book of how to live in the remote wilderness.

Then there’s also the filming, day in and day out, of his experiences alone on the Alaska island.

Once he returns to civilization, he’ll edit the video and try to sell it as a documentary series.

Baird is not the first to make or film such an odyssey.

Dick Proenneke lived alone in a remote cabin and kept jour nals published as the classic Alaska memoir “One Man’s Wilderness.”

He moved to his cabin in 1968 at the age of 52. Proenneke lived alone until 1998 in what is now Lake Clark National Park and Preserve. He also filmed his adventures, which have been turned into DVDs and were aired on PBS. He died in 2003.

Iraq arts fest: More words, less song and dance BABYLON, Iraq (AP) — Poetry has returned to the Triangle of Death. But dancing and singing are being left behind. In this dusty southern community, home to the renowned archaeological site of Babylon and ravaged by modern-day sectarian fighting, Iraqi officials are trying to bring back normalcy by reviving a spring cultural festival that drew hundreds of thousands of people in its heyday. But in a country where few topics are untouched by sectarian or political tensions as the new democracy grapples with an uncertain future, even the past week’s feel-good festival of books, paintings and poetry readings is beset by controversy. What’s missing are the traditional singing and dancing acts of past festivals. The intent, say organizers, is to distinguish the reborn Babylon festival from its Saddam Hussein-era ancestors. But it also seems to reflect the distaste of a recently empowered religious establishment for public singing and dancing. Many Iraqis wistfully recall the festivals of yore, and the excitement and sheer fun of the music. But this year, cabdriver Thamir Hassan finds the event stodgy and elitist. “Ordinary people like me tried to seek joy and happiness in the festival activities, but we found only artists and intellectuals talking about things that are related to themselves only,” said Hassan, 32, from Hillah, one of the towns hosting the festival. “It’s a total failure,” he complained.

gle of Death. The triangle actually refers to three mostly Sunni cities just north of Hillah that were controlled by al-Qaida during the darkest days of the war. But Hillah, mostly Shiite and just a halfhour’s drive away, was a prime target.

Even now deadly bombings are common, and in February, Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki warned that al-Qaida was still active here.

In 2010, after security improved, Mansour al-Manie, deputy chairman of the provincial council, tried to revive the festival but got a lukewarm public response, he said, “because of the religious pressures.”

In this May 7 photo, people listen to a poet during Babylon Festival of Culture in Hillah, about 60 miles south of Baghdad.

“The ordinary people are tired by the hardships of life, and they want a break, and they do not want to see poets and artists discussing their work.” Under Saddam, the festival would headline famous singers and dancers from Iraq and across the Arab world, Russia and Europe. Poetry readings and arts exhibits also were offered, but live song and dance were the main attraction. Ali al-Shallah, a Shiite legislator overseeing the event from Hillah, rejected the widely held belief that religious hard-liners killed the fun. He said the intent was to contrast it from those held by Iraq’s

ousted, hanged dictator. “During Saddam’s time, the Babylon festival and its singing and dancing shows were designed to serve the political and propaganda agendas of the regime. That is over,” he said. “Right from the beginning, the plan was to hold a cultural and intellectual festival that is totally different from the typical image in people’s minds about the Babylon festival,” he said. After the 2003 invasion of Iraq and Saddam’s ouster, the region around Babylon and Hillah was so notorious for sectarian violence it was called the Trian-

“Clerics decided the festival (under Saddam) was a violation of religious values,” he said in an interview, “but if we isolate it from the political issue, it is a good thing for Babil,” the province where the festival is held.

For Iraqis, many of whom have endured sanctions and three wars during more than two decades of murderous dictatorship, the festival was a modest but much-needed reminder of their country’s artistic and archaeological heritage. “This festival is a successful one because it shows that Iraq is still a cultural center,” said Mohammed AbdulHussein, a 35-year -old teacher who attended a lecture on Iraq’s ancient civilizations. He said it “deals with educational and intellectual activities — away from the atmosphere of noisy songs and immoral dancing.”

Gold! Haiti hopes ore find will spur a mining boom

TROU DU NORD, Haiti (AP) — Its capital is blighted with earthquake rubble. Its countryside is shorn of trees, chopped down for fuel. And yet, Haiti’s land may hold the key to relieving centuries of poverty, disaster and disease: There is gold hidden in its hills — and silver and copper, too. A flurry of exploratory drilling in the past year has found precious metals worth potentially $20 billion deep below the tropical ridges in the country’s northeastern mountains. Now, a mining company is drilling around the clock to determine how to get those metals out. The Haitian government’s annual budget is $1 billion, more than half provided by foreign assistance. The largest single source of foreign investment, $2 billion, came from Haitians working abroad last year. A windfall of locally produced wealth could pay for roads, schools, clean water and sewage systems for the

nation’s 10 million people, most of whom live on as little as $1.25 a day. “If the mining companies are honest and if Haiti has a good government, then here is a way for this country to move forward,” said Bureau of Mines Director Dieuseul Anglade. In a parking lot outside Anglade’s marble-floored office, more than 100 families have been living in tents since the earthquake. “The gold in the mountains belongs to the people of Haiti,” he said, gesturing out his window. “And they need it.” Haiti’s geological vulnerability is also its promise. Massive tectonic plates squeeze the island with horrifying consequences, but deep cracks between them form convenient veins for gold, silver and copper pushed up from the hot innards of the planet. Prospectors from California to Chile know earthquake faults often have, quite literally, a golden lining.

Until now, few Haitians have known about this buried treasure. Mining camps are unmarked, and the work is being done miles up dirt roads near remote villages, on the opposite side of the country from the capital. But U.S. and Canadian investors have spent more than $30 million in recent years on everything from exploratory drilling to camps for workers, new roads, offices and laboratory studies of samples. Actual mining could be under way in five years. On a rugged, steep Haitian ridge far above the Atlantic, brilliant boulders coated with blue-green oxidized copper jut from the hills, while colorful pebbles litter the soil, strong indicators that precious metals lie below. “Just look down,” said geologist John Watkins. “Where there’s smoke, there’s fire.” Nearby, 8-year -old Whiskey Pierre and his barefoot buddies stared at

a team of sweat-drenched men driving a narrow, shrieking diamond bit 900 feet into the ground. “That is a drill!” shouted Whiskey, bouncing on his toes. “The man drill to get gold!” The workers periodically pulled up samples and knocked them into boxes. The first 40 feet yielded loose rocks and gravel. About 160 feet down, cylinders of rock came back peppered with gold. At 1,000 feet down, rocks were heavily streaked with copper. Geologists extrapolating from depth and strike reports estimate at least 1 million ounces of gold at two sites. In April, prospectors found the first significant silver ever reported in Haiti: between 20 million and 30 million ounces. And in the end, it may be copper that is the most lucrative: geologists suspect that more than 1 million tons lay in just one of many areas under exploration.

The prices of precious metals have been volatile in recent years, with copper selling for about $8,000 per ton, silver at $30 an ounce, and gold at $1,600 per ounce. “Ultimately, I think mining is going to dwarf anything else in Haiti,” says Michael Fulp, an Albuquerque-based geologist who visited the drill sites. “Usually you’ve got about a one-in-1,000 chance of making a mine from the exploratory stage, but those odds are much better in Haiti because of the lack of any previous modern-day exploration and very, very promising samples.” Gold was last gathered in Haiti in the 1500s, after Christopher Columbus ran the Santa Maria onto a Haitian reef. Spaniards enslaved the Arawak Indians to dig for gold, killing them off with harsh conditions and infectious diseases. When the Spaniards learned of even more lucrative deposits in Mexico,

they moved on.

In the 1970s, United Nations geologists documented significant pockets of gold and copper, but foreigners weren’t willing to risk their cash in a country where corruption and instability has long discouraged outside investment.

Ironically, it was only after the catastrophic 2010 earthquake that investors saw real opportunity. Fifteen days after a seismic jolt brought down much of Port-au- Prince, a Canadian exploration fir m acquired all of the shares of the only Haitian firm holding full permits for a promising chunk of land in the northeast.

“Investors want to get in at the bottom,” said Dan Hachey, president of Majescor Resources, the Canadian company, “and I figured after that earthquake, Haiti was as low as it could get.”

Dior exhibit traces 60 years of cinematic arts

GRANVILLE, France (AP) — Going back to where it all began, a new exhibit in the childhood home of legendary designer Christian Dior in Normandy sheds new light on the house’s huge contribution to the silver screen. The setting also provides rare insight into how a young Dior — a mama’s boy who liked to spend time in the garden — became inspired by the Granville landscape and decided to dedicate his life to fashion. The exhibit features a rare collection: three floors with 50 glittering gowns, worn by actresses including Grace Kelly, Elizabeth Taylor and Rita Hayworth, both on and off the screen from 1942 to the present day. “It’s not something that many people know. For Christian Dior, it was his first job: it all started with cinema costume and dressing up. By the time of his first fashion show in 1947, he’d already done eight

Roswell Daily Record

films. Now over a 100,” Christian Dior museum cocurator Barbara JeauffroyMairet said.

Opening the exhibit is a mannequin in a black “flower stem” dress from Dior’s first collection in 1947. It’s one that Hayworth bought from what was then her up-and-coming designer friend on the cusp of fame. Standing against a huge photo of Hayworth reclining in an intimate setting with Dior — it’s visual proof that from the outset, cinema stars swarmed around the house. “Hayworth was there at that famous first show on the front row. Actresses couldn’t wait to be linked to the house. Dior was, simply, the desired style ... And to this day,” “Stars in Dior” curator Florence Mullen said. True enough: the exhibit testifies to the house’s staying power, ending 65 years later with the black tulle bustier worn by French actress Marion Cotillard’s at the 2009

Mannequins in Christian Dior designs are seen at an exhibition at the childhood home of the designer in Granville, Normandy, France, Thursday.

Academy Awards. “It was the theater, the decor in cinema — that’s what drove his passion from the beginning: the theatricality in fashion,”

said Jeauffroy-Mairet. If fashion nowadays seems theatrical, this was nothing when compared with the catwalk in Dior’s lifetime, as archive footage

in the exhibit testifies. A projection shows a platinum blond Jayne Mansfield watching a Dior haute couture show demurely from the front row. Without batting an eyelid, Mansfield is passed by one catwalk model dancing down it balletically, and even doing a pirouette. The collaborations were, at times, bittersweet: in one room filled with press cuttings, a provocative yet vulnerable Marilyn Monroe poses in a black, backless Dior dress for a photo. It’s said to be the last shoot before her tragic death in 1962. Another actress deeply linked to the house was fashion icon Marlene Dietrich — who loved Christian Dior so much she moved just down the road on Avenue Montaigne. Telegrams between the couturier and the GermanAmerican actress reveal the intimacy of their relationship. Dietrich once refused to star in Alfred Hitchcock

film “Stage Fright” unless her friend made the costumes — on display in the exhibit.

Beyond the exhibit, the museum and surrounding gardens hold many clues as to what drove Dior artistically — both in his theatricality and the aesthetic codes.

Dior, born in 1905, spent a happy childhood living in this three-story house, known as “Les Rhumbs,” nestled on the breathtaking Normandy coastline.

A series of personal blows swiftly plunged Dior into the experience of adulthood: his beloved mother died unexpectedly in 1931, and the Wall Street Crash forced the family to sell the house not long after. In later life, it seems he channeled these previous happy memories into his career. “My life, my style owes everything to the house, the setting, the architecture,” he once said.

June Cleaver to Obama jokes with Clooney at star’s gala fundraiser Gloria Pritchett: 5 great TV moms

AP Photo

LOS ANGELES (AP) — George Clooney played the suave host, chef Wolfgang Puck whipped up something for dinner and President Barack Obama and about 150 of his Hollywood donors enjoyed a few laughs at Clooney’s good-humored expense. Obama told the crowd that his famed “Hope” poster from the 2008 campaign was based on a photograph of Obama sitting next to Clooney when Obama was a U.S. senator. Clooney had been in Washington advocating on behalf of Darfur. “This is the first time that George Clooney has ever been photo-shopped out of a picture,” Obama said. “Never happened before, never happen again.” In fact, the artist who created the poster, Shepard Fairey,

used another photograph of Obama but said he relied on the Obama-Clooney picture to avoid a copyright infringement case with The Associated Press. He pleaded guilty in February to criminal contempt for fabricating and destroying evidence. In this crowd, Obama didn’t even need to mention gay marriage to get vigorous applause. “Obviously,” the president said obliquely, “yesterday we made some news.” The event, held under a tent with a transparent roof outside Clooney’s sprawling Tudor -style canyon home, raised nearly $15 million, a record for a single fundraiser. Guests paid $40,000 to attend, accounting for about $6 million of the evening’s financial haul for Obama’s campaign and the Democratic Party. The remainder came

Leave your mark

In this Sept. 22, 1986, file photo, actress Barbara Billingsley poses next to a portrait of her television family from "Leave It To Beaver."

Why settle for one great mom when, as any TV viewer knows, you can adopt a series of them? Here’s five of the best, from the demure 1950s version to the freewheeling 21st-century incarnation. These fictional mamas may have set the bar high for generations of real ones, but they did something in return: kept families entertained so they’d give mom a break, if only until the next commercial. No Mother’s Day card is necessary, but let’s give each of these TV moms a big hug for her holiday: — June Cleaver (Barbara Billingsley), “Leave It to Beaver,” 1957-63. Yes, June wore pearls around the house. And high heels. But her real trademark was her loving but no-nonsense approach to rambunctious sons Wally and Beaver. She met misbehavior with a knowing look and even tone, making surrender the only option. — Clair Huxtable (Phylicia Rashad), “The Cosby Show,” 1984-92. With five children and a husband who’s a great partner but a big kid himself, what’s a mother to do? Clair’s answer: Be the calm center of a whirlwind of activity, while tending to a legal career and reminding Cliff (Bill Cosby) he’s a lucky, lucky man. —Roseanne Conner (Roseanne Barr), “Roseanne,” 1988-97. There are many ways to be a good mother and Roseanne’s was unmistakably hers, with bark and loving bite (and definitely no pearls). She was funny and rowdy and unfailingly committed to keeping her family afloat through tough times, whether financial or emotional. — Lorelai Gilmore (Lauren Graham), “The Gilmore Girls,” 2000-07. A young, fiercely devoted single parent, Lorelai had her own growing up to do. But she always put daughter Rory’s needs first as, in tandem, mom and teenager stumbled uncertainly toward making the best life — and brightest future — possible. — Gloria Pritchett (Sofia Vergara), “Modern Family,” 2009-present. If young Manny is a mama’s boy, then he’s keeping ideal company. Gorgeous, exuberant, devoted Gloria kept their dreams alive when the pair were on their own. New stepdad Jay is in the picture now and wants to weigh in, but this savvy mother knows best. And remember, guys, these are Mother’s Day hugs.

from a raffle for small dollar donors. Two winners — both women — got to attend the dinner and, even though Clooney was the host, they brought their husbands. Puck’s dinner menu included an artichoke salad followed by roasted duckling “Peking style” with tiny buns, a duo of lamb and beef cheek with potatoes and Brussels sprouts, and sweet cor n tortelloni. “We raised a lot of money because people love George,” Obama said. “They like me; they love George.” Then, seriously, he added: “He seems to occupy a constant state of grace, and uses his extraordinary talents on behalf of something truly important.” Obama and Clooney hit the basketball court on Friday mor ning, joined by actor

Tobey Maguire and staf f members. Obama joked at Thursday’s fundraiser that Clooney had been “talking smack about his basketball game ever since I’ve known him. And we’ve actually known each other a while.”

For Obama, the A-list party was not only a financial hit, it gave the president the kind of Hollywood buzz a Republican seldom gets. But the glitzy event, with its glamour and wealth, also has its risks: It set up a stark contrast with Obama’s mission Friday to highlight the plight of struggling homeowners in Nevada.

/s/ DAVE KUNKO Purchasing Director -----------------------------------------------------------------------Publish May 13, 20, 27, 2012 LEGAL NOTICE


You may be affected by a class action lawsuit about whether ENMMC (hereinafter “the Hospital”) overcharged you.

The lawsuit is called Roswell Hospital Corporation d/b/a Eastern New Mexico Medical Center vs. Patrick Sisneros and Tammie Sisneros McClain, et. al., Case No. D-504-CV-2008-00485, and is in the Fifth Judicial District Court for the State of New Mexico. The court decided this lawsuit should be a class action on behalf of a “Class,” or group of people that could include you. This notice summarizes your rights and options before an upcoming trial. More information is in a detailed notice at the website below. If you’re included, you have to decide whether to stay in the Class and be bound by whatever results, or ask to be excluded and keep your right to sue the Hospital. There is no money available now and no guarantee that there will be. Are you affected?

The Court has allowed a damages class action lawsuit on behalf of patient accounts for which a substantial payment has been made. The Court defined substantial payment as a payment equal to or greater than 19.8% of the original billed amount. If you were a patient at the Hospital who: (i) received treatment between April 15, 2003 and April 15, 2009; and (ii) either personally or through a family member or other responsible individual paid 19.8% or more of your gross hospital bill on at least one account you incurred for treatment at the Hospital, you may be entitled to receive a refund or money back. If you have other accounts for which you have not made a substantial payment and currently have an outstanding balance, the plaintiffs are bringing a separate injunctive class action to reduce the amount you owe. No notice will be issued for the separate injunctive class until after a decision on the merits and the Court determines whether the amount should be reduced or not. What is this case about?

The lawsuit claims that the Hospital overcharged for hospital goods and services provided. Plaintiffs allege that the Hospital has engaged in a pattern and practice of turbocharging to obtain excessive government subsidies. Plaintiffs also allege that patients were then subject to excessive billings, aggressive collection practices and many were sued by the Hospital to collect the turbocharged amounts. Plaintiffs allege that your account may have been affected by some or all of these practices.

For Results You Can Measure

The Hospital denies that it did anything wrong and has raised defenses. The Hospital contends that its charges, billing and collection practices are appropriate and that it has not violated any contracts, laws or regulations. The Court has not decided whether the Class or the Hospital is right. The lawyers for the Class will have to prove their claims at a trial set to begin on November 27, 2012.

Who represents you?

The Court certified Randy Clark, Esq. and Loralee Hunt, Esq. to represent you as “Class Counsel.” You don’t have to pay Class Counsel, or anyone else, to participate. Instead, if they get money or benefits for the Class, they may ask the Court for attorneys’ fees and costs, which would be paid by the Hospital or out of any money recovered, before giving the rest to the Class. You may hire your own lawyer to appear in Court for you; if you do, you have to pay that lawyer. Tammie Sisneros McClain, Lindsey Swarengin and Jacqueline Harrelson Oldfield are Class members like you, and the Court accepted them as the “Class Representatives.”

What are your options?

You have a choice of whether to stay in the Class or not and you must decide this now. If you stay in the Class, you will be legally bound by all orders and judgments of the Court, and you won’t be able to sue, or continue to sue, the Hospital as part of any other lawsuit for overcharging that occurred between April 15, 2003 and April 15, 2009. If money and/or benefits are obtained, you will be notified about how to get a share. To stay in the Class, you do not have to do anything now.

If you ask to be excluded from the Class, you cannot get any money and/or benefits from this lawsuit if any are awarded, but you will keep any rights to sue the Hospital for these claims, now or in the future, and will not be bound by any orders or judgments of the Court. To ask to be excluded, send a letter that says you want to be excluded or send the Exclusion Request Form available at to the address below with postmark by June 14, 2012. Whether by letter or form, include your name, date of birth, address and telephone number.

How can I get more information?

If you have questions or want a detailed notice or other documents about this lawsuit and your rights, visit, or write to: ENMMC Class Action, 116 E. Country Club, Roswell, NM 88201. You may not call the Court, the Court staff, or the Clerk’s office with questions about this Class Action Certification Notice or the pending litigation. If you have questions, your questions can be answered by Class Counsel.
