Facebook IPO huge Romney decries idea of
NEW YORK (AP) — Facebook found more than enough friends. The world’s definitive online social network said Thursday that it raised $16 billion for itself and its early investors in an initial public stock offering that values Facebook at $104 billion. That’s more than Amazon.com and other well-known companies such as Kraft, Walt Disney and McDonald’s. It’s a big windfall for a company that began eight years ago with no way to make money. Facebook priced its IPO at $38 per share on Thursday, at the top of expectations. Now, regular investors will have a
chance to buy stock in Facebook for the first time. The stock will begin trading on the Nasdaq Stock Market sometime Friday morning. The ticker symbol will be FB.
Facebook’s offering is the culmination of a year’s worth of Internet IPOs that began last May with LinkedIn Corp. Since then, a steady stream of startups focused on the social side of the Web has gone public, with varying degrees of success. It all led up to Facebook, the company that’s come to define social networking by getting 900 million people around the See IPO, Page A7

Roswell was recognized for excellence in the New Mexico tourism industry Wednesday, capturing New Event of the Year at the 2012 Tourism Association of New Mexico TIARA Awards. The city received the award for the 2011 Roswell International Sci-Fi Film Festival: Aliens in Cinema, which was singled out for creative accomplishments, travel marketing and promotion. City of Roswell Marketing Director Renee Roach said the event was an overwhelming success, attracting film buffs from all over the world. “What I really think was the hook was that we did such a great job capitalizing on film tourism, which is a relatively new concept to a lot of destina-
DuBois seeks Senate District 33 seat
JULIA BERGMAN RECORD STAFF WRITER Democrat Stephanie DuBois, a longtime small
business owner, says she is seeking election to the newly redistricted state Senate District 33 seat. The seat is currently represented by Sen. Rod Adair, RRoswell, who announced in April that he was withdrawing from the race. DuBois will face Sen. Bill Burt, RAlamogordo, in the general election. Indicating the area has been dominated by Republican representation throughout the years, Dubois said, “We need to have a choice ...

Heloise provided Roswell with plenty of hints Thursday, as hundreds of fans poured into the Civic Center to hear the internationally-acclaimed syndicated columnist and best-selling author speak on the importance of reading. Her speech, Literacy: Make it Fun, was the featured New Mexico Centennial event for the Roswell Public Library, and came near the 50th anniversary of the Daily Record’s first printing of the original Heloise column. Heloise took over the column when her mother, Heloise Bowles Cruse, passed away in 1977, and for about 35 years, she has been providing lifestyle tips on such topics as household management, business, travel and health and wellness.

Evidence errors force Mladic trial delay
Former Bosnian Serb military commander Gen. Ratko Mladic on the second day of his trial at the Yugoslav war crimes tribunal in The Hague, Netherlands, Thursday.
THE HAGUE, Netherlands (AP) — An apparent clerical error prompted judges to postpone the long-awaited war crimes trial of for mer Bosnian Serb military leader Ratko Mladic on Thursday, possibly for months. The delay cast a shadow over one of the court’s biggest cases — and over the reputation of the court itself, where most prominent trials have proceeded at a snail’s pace, frustrating many victims. It also highlighted problems faced by international tribunals in prosecuting sweeping indictments covering allegations of atrocities spanning years in countries far from the courts where defendants face justice. “It is fraught with delay because of the volume of documentation and scope of alleged crimes,” Richard Dicker, the director of Human Rights Watch’s international justice program, said in a telephone interview Thursday. “Add to that the need to translate and it really takes it to a whole new level of complexity that you don’t see in domestic trials.” Presiding judge Alphons Orie said he was delaying the Yugoslav war crimes tribunal case due to “significant disclosure errors” by prosecutors, who are obliged to share all evidence with Mladic’s
lawyers. Orie said judges will analyze the “scope and full impact” of the problem and aim to set a new starting date as soon as possible. The presentation of evidence was supposed to begin later this month. Prosecutors had already acknowledged the errors and did not object to the delay. Mladic’s attor ney has asked for six months to study the materials. Mladic is accused of commanding Bosnian Serb troops who waged a campaign of killings and persecution to drive Muslims and Croats out of territory they considered part of Serbia during Bosnia’s 199295 war. His troops rained shells and snipers’ bullets down on civilians in the 44month siege of the Bosnian capital, Sarajevo. They also executed thousands of Muslim men and boys in Srebrenica, the site of Europe’s worst massacre since World War II. The war itself left more than 100,000 dead. Mladic has refused to enter pleas to the charges but denies wrongdoing. If convicted, he faces a maximum sentence of life imprisonment. Court spokeswoman Ner ma Jelacic told The Associated Press that much of the material the defense did not get was about witnesses prosecutors had
intended to call to testify before the court’s summer break. Prosecutors acknowledged the error “could impact on the fairness of the trial,” she said. The tribunal published a letter from prosecutors to Mladic’s lawyer that said the missing documents were not uploaded onto an electronic database accessible to defense lawyers. “We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience,” it read. Hatidza Mehmedovic, whose husband and two sons were slain by Serb forces during the Srebrenica massacre, said she hoped the delay would not be too long. “We are worried he won’t live to see justice,” Mehmedovic said in the tribunal’s lobby as she prepared to make the long trek back to Srebrenica. Her fears are not without reason. Mladic, now 70, suffered three strokes during his 15 years as a fugitive, his lawyer says. In another case that suffered repeated delays, former Yugoslav President Slobodan Milosevic died of a heart attack in 2006 before judges could deliver a verdict in his trial, which dragged on for four years. Milosevic was accused of orchestrating deadly conflicts across the Balkans in the 1990s. The delays in Milosevic’s trial were largely caused by his ill health and his lengthy political grandstanding while acting as his own defense lawyer. Suspects like Milosevic and his Bosnian Serb counterpart Radovan Karadzic — whose trial is at its half-way stage after starting in October 2009 — “seek to use the criminal process as a platform to expound their views and rewrite history in a way that is favorable to them,” said Dicker. The Yugoslav court is not the only war crimes tribunal to suffer. Cases at the Inter national Criminal Court and the trial of former Liberian President Charles Taylor also have been hit by lengthy delays.

2 Mexico generals under house arrest
MEXICO CITY (AP) — A federal judge in Mexico has ordered two army generals placed under a for m of house arrest pending an investigation for possible links to the Beltran Leyva drug cartel, authorities said Thursday. The Attorney General’s Office said in a statement that the generals will remain under arrest at least 40 days while prosecutors strengthen their case. The investigation against retired Gen. Tomas Angeles Dauahare and Gen. Roberto Dawe Gonzalez is based on a case from 2009 that includes “the testimony of several people on trial, including some soldiers,” the office said. An official at the Attorney General’s Office says generals protected members of

Severely cross-eyed,” she said. “So cross-eyed that my right eye went in, and I would literally crawl, as a baby, into a chair or a wall. ... “It physically hurt for me to read. So I didn’t like reading. It strained me, I’d get a headache every 20 or 30 minutes. Reading in front of the class was horrible. ... So I didn’t really start enjoying reading until I was at college. But then I started reading, and I found it enjoyable and exciting and amazing.” Heloise, a longtime advocate for literacy, said that years ago she read how correctional institutions use elementary reading levels and skills to determine how many

the Beltran Leyva group, which has been battling the Sinaloa drug cartel since 2008, when they ended an alliance. He spoke on condition of anonymity because he is not allowed to discuss the case. President Felipe Calderon named Angeles Dauahare as assistant defense secretary in 2006. He left the post in 2008, when he retired. He is the highest ranking military official to be linked to drug traffickers during the current administration. Dawe Gonzalez is currently assigned to a military base in the western state of Colima. Dauahare’s Angeles lawyer, Alejandro Ortega, told The Associated Press Thursday he hasn’t been given access to court files and allowed to talk to him. prison beds a facility will need in 16 to 18 years. She said lear ning this fact truly frightened her, and emphasized the importance of getting children to start reading at an early age. “What I’d like to say is: If you make reading fun, then your kids can have fun reading. I don’t care if it’s the back of a cereal box or one page in the comics. ... If you start them young, they will take care of themselves when they are older.” Heloise met with several of her fans prior to her speech at a reception outside the Roswell Museum and Art Center, where she offered a few extra hints for parents on reading. “When kids are a certain age, set the correct boundaries and hold to them,” she said. “And there are certain times you have to bargain — you can say, ‘Okay, you can have an hour of video games, but we’re going to go do 20 minutes of math. ... Stand your ground. They might yell at you, say I hate you, but later on, when they’re 20 or 30, they’ll say thanks.”
He said the general told his wife he is being accused of taking money from associates of Edgar Valdez Villareal, who was the top hit man for Arturo Beltran Leyva, who was killed in 2009. Valdez Villareal was arrested in 2010. Ortega said the general supports himself with army pension and owns a house and an apartment. He said the general’s wife also owns a house she inherited. A few senior military officers have been arrested for alleged links to drug traffickers during Mexico’s long struggle to control the cartels. More than 47,000 people have been killed in drug violence since Calderon deployed thousands of soldiers to drug hotspots, according to government figures.
Heloise closed her speech at the Civic Center by relating how her mother would always take the time to thank volunteers, and stressed the importance of helping out in the community. “If the volunteers of this country stood down for one day, one day — this country would come to a halt. ... “Most volunteers, particularly in small communities, they do it because it’s the right thing to do. They don’t do it to get in the newspaper, they don’t do it for recognition, they don’t do it to have a luncheon. They do it because it’s the right thing to do. (My mother) truly believed in that, and I do, too. So I want you to know I’m here for you.” Following her presentation, Heloise autographed her latest book Handy Household Hints from Heloise for her many fans.

Queen of Disco Donna Summer dies at 63
Roswell Daily Record
NEW YORK (AP) — Like the King of Pop or the Queen of Soul, Donna Summer was bestowed a title fitting of musical royalty — the Queen of Disco. Yet unlike Michael Jackson or Aretha Franklin, it was a designation she wasn’t comfortable embracing. “I grew up on rock ‘n’ roll,” Summer once said when explaining her reluctance to claim the title. Indeed, as disco boomed then crashed in a single decade in the 1970s, Summer, the beautiful voice and face of the genre with pulsating hits like “I Feel Love,” “Love to Love You Baby” and “Last Dance,” would continue to make hits incorporating the rock roots she so loved. One of her biggest hits, “She Works Hard for the Money,” came in the early 1980s and relied on a smoldering guitar solo as well as Summer’s booming voice. Yet it was with her disco anthems that she would have the most impact in music, and it’s how she was remembered Thursday as news spread of her death from cancer at age
63. It had been decades since that brief, flashy moment when Summer was every inch the Disco Queen. Her glittery gowns and long eyelashes. Her luxurious hair and glossy, open lips. Her sultry vocals, her bedroom moans and sighs. She was as much a part of the culture as disco balls, polyester, platform shoes and the music’s pulsing, pounding rhythms. Summer’s music gave voice to not only a musical revolution, but a cultural one — a time when sex, race, fashion and drugs were being explored and exploited with freedom like never before in the United States. Her rise was inseparable from disco’s itself, even though she remained popular for years after the genre she helped invent had died. She won a Grammy for best rock vocal performance for “Hot Stuff,” a fiery guitar-based song that represented her shift from disco to more rock-based sounds, and created another kind of anthem with “She Works Hard for the Money,” this
time for women’s rights. Summer may not have liked the title and later became a bor n-again Christian, but many remembered her best for her early years, starting with the sinful “Love to Love You Baby.” Released in 1975, a breakthrough hit for Summer and for disco, it was a legend of studio ecstasy and the genre’s ultimate sexual anthem. Summer came up with the idea of the song and first recorded it as a demo in 1975, on the condition that another singer perform it commercially. But Casablanca Records president Neil Bogart liked the track so much that he suggested to producer Giorgio Morodor they re-record it, and make it longer — what would come to be known as a “disco disc.” Summer, real name LaDonna Adrian Gaines, was bor n in 1948 in Boston. She was raised on gospel music and became the soloist in her church choir by age 10. Before disco, she had already reinvented herself several times. She sang Motown songs with local
groups in Boston as a teenager, then dropped out of school in the late 1960s and switched to pyschedelic rock after hearing Janis Joplin. An attempt to get a part in the musical “Hair” led her to get the principal role in Munich. She stayed in Germany for five years, worked in other productions and modeled. Meanwhile, she was performing in operas, singing backup for Three Dog Night and other groups and releasing songs of her own. A marriage to Helmuth Sommer didn’t last, but the singer did hold on to her ex-husband’s last name, changing it to “Summer.” By 1974, she had met producers Giorgio Moroder and Pete Bellotte and released her first album, “Lady of the Night,” to success in Europe. Then came “Love to Love You Baby,” her memorable U.S. debut. Through the rest of the disco era she burned up the charts: She was the only artist to have three consecutive doubleLPs hit No. 1, “Live and More,” “Bad Girls” and “On the Radio.” She was

also the first female artist with four No. 1 singles in a 13-month period, according to the Rock Hall of Fame, where she was a nominee this year but was passed over. Musically, she began to change in 1979 with “Hot Stuff,” which had a tough, rock ‘n’ roll beat. Her diverse sound helped her earn Grammy Awards in the dance, rock, R&B and inspirational categories.
“I like the Moody Blues, the Beatles and the Rolling Stones as well as Aretha Franklin, Dionne Warwick, the Supremes and Temptations,” she said. “I didn’t know many white kids who didn’t know the Supremes; I don’t know many black kids who don’t know the Moody Blues.” Summer released her last album, “Crayons,” in 2008. It was her first full studio album in 17 years.
80 homes evacuated near blaze in northern Colorado
FORT COLLINS, Colo. (AP) — Authorities ordered mandatory evacuations Thursday of dozens of homes close to a wildfire blazing near a scenic canyon in northern Colorado, even going door to door to warn residents of impending danger. Residents of 80 homes in the area a short drive from Fort Collins had been instructed previously to be ready to leave on short notice, said U.S. Forest Service spokeswoman Kristy Wumkes. The fire has grown from 1.5 square miles to 8 square miles since Wednesday as erratic wind gusts kicked up by dry thunderstorms swept through the region at up to 50 mph. About 400 firefighters are working to contain the blaze.

Their efforts are being supported by a heavy air tanker and helicopters that together are capable of dropping thousands of gallons of fire retardant and water on the flames. Officials think human activity started the blaze, which was first reported Monday, but are still investigating. The growing northern Colorado fire was one of several burning in the West on Thursday. A fire in northern Arizona grew to more than 10 square miles and led to the evacuation of a historic mining town.

Area resident John Hasler said he’s not leaving. “We’re not going to have a fire come down and burn our house,” Hasler said, adding that his home is surrounded by a lawn of closely cropped grass. “If does, it’ll burn grass and it wouldn’t be big flames. I’m really confident that I can handle it with my garden hose.” Hasler said “it’s a totally different situation” from the late March wildfire that killed three people south of Denver.

MARK SHIELDS CREATORS SYNDICATE
Please accept the following as a small token of appreciation from your semi-faithful correspondent, who knows how busy life can get, what with graduations, Memorial Day and everything. We read all the campaign press releases and candidate statements so that you won’t have to. I will happily put the bumper sticker on my car of any presidential candidate who says, with a modicum of humility: “This is probably the second or third most important election of this century.” I just stop listening after any politician tells voters (because his name is on the ballot) that “this is the most important election of your lifetime.” President Obama’s campaign staff is having trouble coming up with a slogan for 2012. They have tried, and apparently rejected,
“Winning the Future” and “An America Built to Last,” and are now trying simply “Forward.” A good slogan can in fact define a campaign. In 1884, Gen. Edward S. Bragg seconded Grover Cleveland’s nomination and championed Cleveland’s candidacy with the simple statement, “We love him most for the enemies he has made!” Hugh Carey, though outspent, won the New York governorship in 1974 against a deep-pocketed but inexperienced opponent with the catchphrase, “This year, before they tell you what they’re going to do, make them show you what they’ve done.” In 1952, with Americans fighting in a stalemated Asian land war, Gen. Dwight Eisenhower’s pledge, “I’ll go to Korea,” carried the day. Richard Nixon’s political comeback was secured in 1968 at least in part because of his campaign
slogan, “This time, vote like your whole world depended upon it.” I will be surprised if this October President Obama’s crowds of supporters or TV commercials will be chanting “Forward.” It would have been a really tough job to be either a campaign strategist or a speechwriter for President George Washington. Why, you ask? Because Gen. Washington is the only presidential candidate in history to run an entire campaign without blaming every problem — from the latest outbreak of ringworm to an epidemic of double-parking — on the administration of his predecessor. I refuse to consider voting for any congressional candidate who either wears tasseled loafers or campaigns by endlessly telling everyone who will listen just how much he loathes Washington, D.C., Capitol Hill and a majority of the congressional colleagues with whom he would serve.

My reasoning is simple: I wouldn’t hire someone to baby-sit — even if she or he had a graduate degree in juvenile psychology and was Phi Beta Kappa, cleanliving, disciplined and well-mannered — if that baby-sitting applicant candidly confided how much she or he personally disliked children. How good a member of Congress could anyone be who blindly hates Congress and everybody in it? Answer: not very. Our two major parties are captives of historical caricatures or stereotypes. Because Democrats were the party of immigrants, the lower class and those at the social margins, that party took pride in nominating presidential candidates who had graduated from Ivy League schools, knew which salad fork to use and who could speak in complete sentences. Examples include Franklin Roosevelt, Adlai Stevenson, John Kennedy, Bill
Clinton and Barack Obama. Republicans were seen as the party of the well-to-do, the socially acceptable and the native-born. To overcome that perception, the GOP preferred nominees who were not to the manor born but who came from humble origins. Abraham Lincoln, Dwight Eisenhower, Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan, Gerald Ford and Bob Dole rebutted the image of Republicans as the well-born and privileged. Which brings us to the case of Mitt Romney, who was not born in a log cabin and whose mother did not work the late shift to keep him in shoes. With his tin ear (“I’m unemployed, too”; My wife “Ann drove a couple of Cadillacs”), he risks reinforcing the negative stereotype of Republicans as the party of the out-of-touch rich. The challenge will be for Mitt to demonstrate an authentic connection with ordinary Americans. COPYRIGHT 2012 MARK SHIELDS
National Opinion Congressional spending cuts
Anyone who wonders why the national approval rating for Congress hovers around 10 percent should consider the latest gambit by House Republicans. They are now trying to avoid the automatic budget cuts triggered by collapse of negotiations when the debt ceiling was raised last year. More specifically, they want to keep the automatic cuts opposed by Democrats and cancel theirs. That’s ridiculous. Last July’s deal was designed to motivate both parties by triggering automatic budget cuts in January — half from defense, half from social programs. Yet now House Republicans want to reduce more spending on the social side and roll back some financial reforms instead. That plan will go nowhere in the Democratic-controlled Senate. If Republicans or Democrats want to avoid “painful” budget cuts in January, they should put forth a realistic plan now. If they don’t, those spending cuts are better than nothing, and they should proceed. Guest Editorial Beaumont (Texas) Enterprise
New underwear bomb
This success isn’t a secret It’s a truism in the spy world. Failures become public; successes remain secret. Which makes this an unusual opportunity to salute the Central Intelligence Agency for the dramatic success in thwarting an alQaida plot to blow up a U.S.-bound airliner. The would-be bomber reportedly was an agent for Saudi Arabian intelligence who had infiltrated the terrorist group in Yemen. The informant volunteered for the suicide mission, then handed over the non-metallic underwear bomb that was designed to foil airport security measures. The double-agent also was able to deliver inside information about the terror operation to intelligence officials. That is believed to have helped the CIA direct a drone strike that killed the external operations director of Yemen’s al-Qaida branch. He also was a suspect in the bombing of the USS Cole that killed 17 American sailors in 2000. The work done by the CIA and its Saudi intelligence partner was impressive. The Yemen-based group is considered al-Qaida’s most active terror operation right now. But the news also serves as a reminder that it’s a dangerous world out there. Despite the many setbacks it has suffered, including the death of Osama bin Laden, alQaida remains a determined adversary. Its top bomb-maker is still at large and believed to be teaching others his despicable craft. And while the sometimes intrusive security at U.S. airports has worked, there are serious concerns about security gaps for U.S.-bound flights from overseas. Continued U.S. diligence, smart undercover work and developing solid international partnerships all are needed in the ongoing counterterrorism fight. Even if we never hear about their successes.

DEAR DOCTOR K: I’m still recovering from a neck injury, but I’m scheduled to begin rehabilitation exercises with a physical therapist next week. How can I start rehab when I’m in so much pain? DEAR READER: Your question reminds me of the time I recommended rehabilitation exercises to a patient with knee pain. The patient responded: “So you’re prescribing a little pain to get rid of my pain? Don’t get mad at me, Doc, but I don’t feel so good that I can afford to feel bad.” After a little explanation and persuasion, the patient agreed to the exercise program. Ultimately, he was glad he had done so. Although it may be hard to believe, without active exercises it is hard to relieve pain, restore
Feds’ intrusions into farms and families
With Mother’s Day right at our back, I want to address one of the most extreme overreaches by the federal government into American homes that I’ve seen in a long time. Then I want to call on my own 91-year-old mother, who was raised in rural Oklahoma and worked in cotton fields with her family during the Great Depression, to help set straight the rural farm and child labor record.

Support for candidate
Dear Editor: As your Chaves County clerk, I have received a number of questions over the past couple of weeks and would like to clarify some points: I am not running for re-election, and I am not a candidate for Chaves County clerk. I do strongly support Stephanie De Los Santos Amaro for county clerk. Stephanie is running as the Republican candidate for Chaves County clerk to succeed me. She is currently the Bureau of Elections chief. In my opinion, she is the very best Bureau of Elections chief I have worked with in my 33 years in the County Clerk’s Office and there have been many great people holding this position. Stephanie is a lifelong Republican, who is dedicated to her job. Stephanie is intensely loyal to the Constitution, the laws of the state of New Mexico, the people of Chaves County and her fellow workers. Her word is her bond and you can depend on her not only to get the job done, but to do so with absolute integrity. Her opponent only recently changed his registration to Republican some 4 1/2 months ago. He has been registered with the Democrat Party, then briefly as a Republican, and most recently as “Decline to State.” So just a few months ago, as he anticipates his retirement

The feds’ crackdown making it illegal for kids to wash dishes, because a knife might cut them?

No more housecleaning, because the Environmental Protection Agency has designated the mixture of certain cleaning chemicals as hazardous to touch or breathe in? Let’s get real, folks! How far do the feds have to mingle in our manure before we say enough is enough? How far do we have to slide down the slippery slope of socialism before the descent becomes irreversible, before we say, “Welcome to Greece”?

Stephanie supervises elections in Chaves County and serves as a deputy county clerk. This is her career. This is her experience and Stephanie has had substantial training. She has been recognized by the secretary of state for her outstanding work. She has served and continues to serve the citizens of Chaves County with distinction. She is not retiring from another government position, and she will not be double-dipping on the public payroll in any way. Stephanie is not only a dedicated employee and hard worker, she is also active in her church and our community. She and her husband have been married 16 years and have two wonderful children. It is an honor to serve the people of Chaves County for these many years as your county clerk, and I care very much about the future professionalism of the clerk’s office.

central government! What’s really at the heart of the Labor Department’s farm action is the continued implementation of Agenda 21, a United Nations program launched in 1992 for the nebulous purpose of reaching global “sustainable development” but which actually promotes a European socialist system that will undermine and chip away our freedoms, liberties and rights. At the heart of that global and social change agenda is the use of nongovernmental organizations, civil resistance movements and class warfare protests, just like the ones we’ve seen with Occupy’s vow to shut down businesses and even Wall Street. One major Occupy website even embraces Agenda 21 as the agenda for its movement! Of course, don’t look for the term Agenda 21 to show up in President Barack Obama’s re-election speeches. To the public, he will continue to pitch — as he did last week — that he is the real small-government president, even more so than former President Ronald Reagan! (I had no idea BO was running for comedian in chief.) But what about actions like the Labor Department’s farm act? Of course, that’s not creating bigger government; it’s just the passionate concern of the federal government to swoop down like a superhero and “protect” your children. Just what we need during this postMother’s Day week, the federal government’s playing some further maternal or paternal role to our children, right? The feds’ actions prompt me to recall the wisdom of Reagan, who said, “The nine most terrifying words in the English language are ‘I’m from the government, and I’m here to help.’” Follow Chuck Norris through his official social media sites, on Twitter @chucknorris and Facebook’s “Official Chuck Norris Page.” He blogs at http://chucknorrisnews.blogspot.com. © 2012 Chuck Norris remedy you can do at home.

Help coral bells thrive; using NM’s climate to its fullest
Q. Good morning! I have three coral bells in my yard. Two are about 8years-old and planted pretty close together. They seem to have a lot of dead stuff on the bottom. They are blooming, but not as well as my 2 to 3-year-old plant. Online, I found a site that says I should separate them every few years, but does not say what time of the year to do that or how. Can you help? Jo H. A. Your coral bells will probably establish more successfully if they are divided and replanted into a well-prepared garden soil in the late winter/early spring just before they begin growth (approximately one month before growth begins). That depends on exactly where you live. Your email address suggests that you are in Albuquerque, so
that would be March or April depending on whether you are in the valley (later transplanting), in the heights or NW mesa area (earlier), or foothills (later again). Gardeners in other parts of New Mexico should adjust the timing based on their experience in their gardens. The microclimate where you are growing them will also impact when to transplant them (warm, south aspect—divide earlier, colder, north aspect—later). Since you are familiar with when they begin to grow, use your experience with them to determine when you are within about a month of their beginning to grow. Transplant them in that time period. Q. We recently purchased land in Timberon at 7500feet elevation to build our home. I would like to plant
and garden with the area’s natural resources excluding the vegetable garden. As I do not want to introduce an invasive species, I was hoping you would have recommendations. Are there any brochures available that may be sent to me? Or references on line? Kim B. Galveston, Texas A. Welcome to New Mexico. As you are well aware, you are moving to a new gardening environment with a completely new set of challenges. Your question regarding xeriscape indicates your awareness of this fact. To lear n the native plants appropriate to
your particular area, I suggest you contact the New Mexico State University Otero County Extension Agent, who is very familiar with your environment and native plant materials. The extension agent is also in contact with the Otero County Native Plant Society which can also help you. She will also be able to advise you regarding the appropriate vegetables to plant in Timberon.

Active duty U.S. military get free entrance to national parks (CARLSBAD)— To show our appreciation for those who serve in the U.S. military, on Saturday—Armed Forces Day—the National Park Service will begin issuing an annual pass offering free entrance to all 397 national parks for active duty military members and their dependents. “Our nation owes a debt of gratitude to our service men and women who make great sacrifices and put their lives on the lines to protect our country and preserve our freedom,” Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar said. “In recognition of their contributions and service, we are putting out a welcome mat for these brave men and women and their families at America’s most beautiful and storied sites.” “For decades, military personnel and their families from bases and training centers around the region have enjoyed the wonders above and below ground at Carlsbad Caver ns,” stated Carlsbad Caver ns National Park Superintendent John Benjamin. “We gladly and proudly welcome these brave individuals and hope more will explore all the tours and activities the park has to offer.” The new pass will be available at the Carlsbad
Caver ns Visitor Center ticket counter, starting at 8 a.m. on Saturday. Active duty members of the U.S. military and their dependents will need to show proper identification (CAC Card or DD Form 1173) to receive a pass. The pass will be accepted at more than 2,000 sites managed by the National Park Service, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Bureau of Reclamation, Bureau of Land Management, and U.S. Forest Service. At Carlsbad Caver ns National Park, where perperson entrance fees are charged, the pass covers the owner of the card and three accompanying adults age 16 and older for the self-guided tours of Carlsbad Cavern-Natural Entrance and Big Room Routes. Entry for children 15 and younger is always free. Fees will still apply for ranger guided tours and audio guides. While the military pass is not available to veterans and retirees, many of these individuals are eligible for other discounted passes, such as the senior pass, granting lifetime access to U.S. citizens over 62 for $10, and the access pass, granting free lifetime access for permanently disabled U.S. citizens. For a description of all available passes, visit nps.gov/findapark/passes
(SALT FLAT, TEXAS)— The Guadalupe Mountains National Park will also show its appreciation to the members of the Armed Forces. To show our appreciation for those who serve in the U.S. military, on Saturday, Armed Forces Day, the National Park Service will begin issuing an annual pass offering free entrance to all 397 national parks for active duty military members and their dependents. “We all owe a debt to those who sacrifice so much to protect our country,” said Guadalupe Mountains National Park Superintendent Dennis A. Vásquez. “We are proud to recognize these brave men and women and hope that a visit to this or any national park will offer an opportunity to unwind, relax, rejuvenate, and just have fun with their families.” Guadalupe Mountains National Park will host an open house Saturday from 8 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. at the Pine Springs Visitor Center to honor active duty personnel from all branches of the U.S. military and their dependents and celebrate the launch of the new America the Beautiful military pass. Cake will be served to the
first attendees. Active duty members of the U.S. military and their dependents can pick up their pass at the Pine Springs Visitor Center, which is open every day, except Dec. 25, from 8 a.m. until 4:30 p.m., or 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. from Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day. They must show a current, valid military identification card to obtain their pass. More information is available at nps.gov/findapark/passes .htm.
This military version of the America the Beautiful National Parks and Federal Recreational Lands pass also per mits free entrance to sites managed by the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, the Bureau of Land Management, the Bureau of Reclamation, and the U.S. Forest Service. The pass is also available at these locations. National parks and the military have strong ties going back to the establishment of Yellowstone as the world’s first national park in 1872. The U.S. Cavalry watched over America’s national parks and did double duty, serving as the first park rangers until the National Park Service was created 44 years later.

The publication H-707: “Landscape Water Conservation” should be helpful and I also recommend publication H-708: “Making Your Home Safe From Wildland Fire.” Since you will live in a forested area of a very arid region, planning with wildfire possibilities in mind is very important. You will find other useful publications at the NMSU website and the NMSU County Extension office will also be an important resource for you (I have copied the County Agent with this email so that you can contact her directly).
With regard to invasive species, remember that many of our native species can become aggressive when supplied with additional water, even the small amount that falls from the rooftop and runs off pave-
ment to supplement natural rainfall. This harvested water is valuable, but may also release some native plants to become weedy.

On Sunday, there will be an annular eclipse of the sun. The Roswell Astronomy Club will set up telescopes at 4 p.m. on the south side of the Roswell Museum and Art Center to let visitors look at large sunspots before 6:31 p.m. when the eclipse begins. The eclipse reaches its maximum at 7:37 p.m. when the Earth, sun, and moon are perfectly aligned and the moon? in apogee? passes in front of the sun, blocking 94 percent of its light and leaving a ring of fiery light around its edges. Known as the “ring of fire,” the annular eclipse is rare and, in the U.S., will only be visible in the West. The last such event occurred in 1994. Join the Roswell Astronomy Club to view this spectacle, but if you view it at home protect your eyes with solar-safe viewing glasses.

Romney indicated he was eager to shift the discussion back to jobs and the economy — bedrock issues on which he contends Obama is vulnerable.

Reaction from the Obama team was swift to the “Ending Spending” proposal. “To launch a multimillion dollar divisive attack

online to sites such as the Slooh Space Camera, which plans to broadcast the event live. A ring eclipse — technically called an annular solar eclipse — is not as dramatic as a total eclipse, when the disk of the sun is entirely blocked by the moon. As in a total solar eclipse, the moon crosses in front of the sun, but the moon is too far from Earth and appears too small in the sky to blot out the sun completely. Asia is abuzz over the event. In Japan, cable cars will run early to give tourists an unobstructed view from the mountains. Ferries will make special trips so that others can enjoy the scene offshore.
The Taipei Astronomical Museum will open its doors at dawn while Hong Kong’s Space Museum will set up solar -filtered telescopes outside its building on the Kowloon waterfront. The last time this type of eclipse was seen in the U.S. was in 1994. This year’s solar show offers ringside seats at 33 national parks along the eclipse path including the Grand Canyon and Bryce Canyon. A partial eclipse can be viewed from another 125 national parks. For die-hard sky gazers, six U.S. locations will see the moon cover about 95 percent of the sun’s diameter. They include the Petroglyph National Monument, Redwoods National Park,
Lassen Volcanic National Park, Canyon de Chelly National Monument, Zion National Park and Glen Canyon National Recreation Area. Wherever you are, do not look directly at the eclipsed sun or you can get a serious eye injury. Wear specially made protective glasses that can be bought online or create your own contraption by punching a small pinhole in a cardboard box. If you buy special eyewear, you can recycle it. Two weeks later, Venus will crawl across the face of the sun — a rare occurrence known as the “transit of Venus” that will also require viewers to take precaution.

The owner of Halsem Kennels, a dog grooming and training business, for around 34 years, DuBois has had her own share of business experience. From 1980 to 1983, she ran the Chamber of Commerce in Deming, taking its treasury from $140 to $9,000 during her tenure. The daughter of a Pearl Harbor survivor, DuBois
is an advocate of veterans issues. She cited the veteran population between Lincoln and Otero counties as 7,600. “We still have to take care of those that have served,” she said. DuBois plans to speak to U.S. Sen. Tom Udall, D-N.M., and has drawn other legislators to the issue of homeless veterans being unable to vote. “They protected our rights. Here’s a right, and they’re not allowed to vote,” she said. While these veterans could use the address of a homeless shelter, DuBois said she’s been advised that veterans are only able to stay at these shelters for a short period of time. “After the president pulls out of Afghanistan, we’re probably going to have a bunch

CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s hoodie made headlines when he wore it to a meeting with investors as did General Motors’ decision this week to stop advertising on the site — and rival Ford’s affirmation that its Facebook ads have been effective. on television and online. In a 2003 sermon, Wright said black people should condemn the United States.
The Wright controversy became a campaign problem for Obama, pushing him to deliver a major speech on race relations. He eventually severed his ties to Wright. The AP left several messages for Wright on Thursday through his executive secretary at Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago as well as through other inter mediaries. There was no immediate reply.

T rinidad scored in all but three innings as the T riggers handed Roswell its first loss of the season, 1711 on Thursday night. Trinidad jumped on the Invaders (41) early, scoring two in the first and three in the third to take a 5-0 lead. Roswell finally got on the board with an unearned run in the third, but Trinidad responded with a run of its own in the top of the fourth to push the lead back to five. The Invaders seemed to take control of the game with a seven-run fourth. Roswell started the fourth off with six consecutive hits and by the time the inning ended it held an 8-6 lead. Trinidad tied the game up with two runs in the fifth, but the Invaders
reclaimed the lead with a run in the home half of the fifth. The Triggers took the lead for good with a four-run sixth. Roswell scored two in the sixth to cut the lead to 12-11, but couldn’t muster anything the rest of the way. Brycen Bell, A.J. Morris and Brian Fitzpatrick led Roswell with two hits each. Morris scored three times, while Bell drove in three. Bryson Sims led Trinidad with four hits.

NA T I O N A L BRIEFS ROD SMITH ELECTED TO BRONCOS’ RING OF FAME
DENVER (AP) — Former Denver Broncos wide receiver Rod Smith entered the league as an undrafted rookie and now his name is about to go up in lights after being elected into the team’s Ring of Fame on Thursday. Smith, who set every major receiving record in franchise history, becomes the 23rd member of the Broncos to have his name etched into the inner facade encircling Sports Authority Field at Mile High. He will be inducted during a halftime ceremony on Sept. 23. A college free agent out of Missouri Southern, Smith finished his career with 849 catches for 11,389 yards receiving and 68 TDs. He also helped the Broncos to two Super Bowls and was a three-time Pro Bowl selection. “Players like Rod don’t come through your door very often, but he came through ours every day with a purpose and hunger to be great,” owner Pat Bowlen said. “Rod’s production and numbers — as outstanding as they were — paled in comparison to his commitment to winning and the respect he commanded from each and every one of his teammates throughout his career.” Smith had a club-record eight 1,000-yard seasons. He also has three of the top-10 single-season reception totals in team history, including a 113-catch performance in 2001. “Rod brought his lunch pail to work each day, took nothing for granted and made himself into an elite player,” said Broncos boss John Elway, who played with Smith. “He’s a true pro. In addition to being one of the greatest undrafted players of all time, he’s one of the greatest wide receivers to ever play the position.” Smith’s last season was 2006 as an aching hip finally forced him to the sideline. He spent his rookie season in 1994 on the Broncos’ practice squad. His first NFL reception was against the Washington Redskins on Sept. 17, 1995, when he hauled in a 43-yard pass from Elway as time expired to lift the Broncos to a 3831 victory. Smith helped Denver to seven postseason appearances, three AFC West crowns and, of course, two Super Bowl titles.

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Brandon McCarthy thought he had a double play. Instead, the Texas Rangers had a successful squeeze bunt and the lead, and the Oakland A’s had a mess on their hands. The A’s bounced back from the disputed sequence that ended with manager Bob Melvin ejected and McCarthy in the dugout, and Kila Ka’aihue had a tiebreaking single in the 10th inning to give Oakland a 5-4 victory against the Texas Rangers on Thursday.

Indiana pounds Miami, 94-75
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Roy Hibbert had 19 points and 18 rebounds, George Hill scored 20 and Danny Granger 17 as the Indiana Pacers, showing more balance, toughness and togetherness than Miami, throttled the Heat 94-75 on Thursday night in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference semifinals. Overlooked during the regular season and given little chance to upset the reigning East champions, the Pacers took a 2-1 lead in the best-of-seven series. Game 4 is Sunday at raucous Bankers Life Fieldhouse. LeBron James scored 22 — 16 in the first half before wearing down — and Mario Chalmers added 25 for Miami. However, Dwyane Wade scored only 5 on 2-of-13 shooting for the Heat, already missing forward Chris Bosh because of a strained abdominal muscle and not expected to return for this series. Indiana outscored Miami 51-32 in the sec-
Diaz ruled he trapped it. Gentry was ruled safe for a 4-3 Texas lead, and Oakland didn’t get anybody out. Melvin ran from the dugout to argue, gesturing repeatedly at Diaz before he was finally thrown out. Replays were inconclusive. “I threw the ball to third. Then he said I trapped it. I said, ‘What?’ and sort of flew of f the handle,” McCarthy said. “I was pretty furious once the disbelief set in.” Reliever Grant Balfour replaced McCarthy after the disputed bunt and did not give up a run even though the Rangers put runners at second and third with one out. Oakland then tied the score again in the seventh on Josh Reddick’s 10th home run. The shot into the Rangers bullpen in rightcenter field ended Texas reliever Alexi Ogando’s scoreless streak at 15 1/3 innings. “That was a huge
momentum swing,” Melvin said. “They have the lead, with guys who have had a lot of success in the bullpen. It was a huge pick-me-up for us.” The Rangers had runners at first and third with one out in the ninth but couldn’t score of f R yan Cook (1-0), who picked up his first major league win and has 19 2/3 scoreless innings this season, most among AL relievers.

They made big shots, challenged everything the Heat tossed in the air and didn’t back down from a Miami team that appeared poised to make an easy run to the NBA finals after top-seeded Chicago lost Derrick Rose and was eliminated in the first round.

Willie Bloomquist and R yan Roberts also drove in two runs apiece as the Diamondbacks won for the third time in 12 contests. J.J.

nobody score,” Cook said. Ka’aihue’s winning hit of f Mike Adams (0-2) drove in Jonny Gomes, who had three hits. Moreland pulled Texas to 3-2 with a two-run homer just over the left field fence in fourth and tied it with a deeper shot to right in the sixth. He has six homers. Josh Hamilton watched both of those from the dugout and was supposed to have the day off. He came on as a pinch-hitter and stayed in the game in center field. He made the first out in the eighth and 10th innings, ending his AL-best 16game hitting streak. Moreland never got a chance for a third home run. He was replaced in the seventh when Snyder came on a pinch-hitter when Oakland went to left-handed reliever

game, though, centered on the bees that invaded the stadium, taking over a camera bay next to the Rockies’ dugout in the fifth inning. They remained stuck to a railing until a beekeeper arrived an inning later to vacuum up the bees and relocate them. Lately, Coors Field has resembled “Wild Kingdom,” with a squirrel scampering into the outfield grass the night before. Troy Tulowitzki hit a two-run homer off starter Trevor Cahill and Jordan Pacheco added a solo shot to help stake the Rockies to an early 4-1 lead. But it wouldn’t last. Bloomquist ignited a four -run eighth with an RBI single off Rex Brothers. Jason Kubel, Paul Goldschmidt and Roberts also added run-scoring singles.

Jordan Norberto. Snyder flied out to right with the go-ahead run at second and ended up missing on two chances to give to the Rangers the lead. “I always want to play,” Moreland said. “He’s the manager. He makes the decision.” McCarthy gave up eight hits and four runs in 5 1/3 innings, with three walks and four strikeouts. Matt Harrison allowed the first five batters to reach base in a threerun Oakland first inning before pitching four shutout frames. He allowed at least one hit in all five innings, then was replaced by Mark Lowe after striking out Ka’aihue to start the sixth. Harrison allowed eight hits and three runs in 5 1/3 innings. He walked three and struck out three. Kurt Suzuki had a two-run double in the first for Oakland after Gomes drove in the first run with a double.
The three-run cushion wouldn’t be enough as David Hernandez was roughed up in the eighth. He loaded the bases and then walked Dexter Fowler to bring in a run. Michael Cuddyer sent a chopper to Roberts, who booted the grounder to allow another run to score. With the bases still full, Marco Scutaro drew another walk to tie the game at 7. Brad Ziegler (2-1) relieved Hernandez and promptly gave up a sinking liner to pinch-hitter Wilin Rosario. But Upton made a sliding catch in right to quell the threat. Gerardo Parra had a one-out double in the ninth and stole third. After Betancourt struck out Bloomquist, Upton drilled his fourth homer of the season.
Roswell Daily Record
Putz started out the ninth in rocky fashion, giving up singles to Carlos Gonzalez, Tulowitzki and Todd Helton. The Rockies sent pitcher Alex White to the plate to pinch hit for Betancourt and he took a called third strike on a 3-2 count. Then, Hernandez hit a weak grounder to Roberts to end the threat. Rockies starter Juan Nicasio had a scare in the first inning when Bloomquist sent a liner straight at him. Nicasio turned his back just in time and was struck on the right thigh. The play was eerily reminiscent of the line drive that hit Nicasio in the right temple last August, when he suf fered a fractured skull along with a neck injury. Doctors had to perform emer-

gency surgery to insert pins into the cracked C-1 vertebra and attach a small metal plate to the back of his neck. Nicasio made a remarkable recovery to become one of the Rockies’ most reliable pitchers this season. Soon after being hit, manager Jim Tracy and trainer Keith Dugger popped out of the dugout to check on him. Nicasio threw a few warmup pitches to test the leg, before motioning he was all right. But he appeared rattled and walked the next two batters. Nicasio worked his way out of the jam without any damage. The Rockies got off to a quick start in the first as Tulowitzki lined a two-run shot to left. It was his first homer since April 27.

their lead to 69-55 after three and then held off one brief run by the Heat in the fourth quarter. Behind Miami’s bench, owner Micky Arison and team president Pat Riley stared in disbelief. Despite playing almost 21 minutes and exerting himself on defense, James had enough energy to throw down a vicious left-handed dunk in the final minute of the first half, pulling the Heat even at 43-all. He looked back at the Miami bench as if to say, “How about a little help out here?” He was doing it all. Wade, on the other hand, was lost. He missed all five fieldgoal attempts, made two turnovers and ran around like a first-time rookie and not a superstar playing in his 95th career postseason game. He also appeared to be involved in a heated argument with Spoelstra during a thirdquarter timeout.

Audre Latimer King
Audre Latimer King, 95, passed away in Houston, on Thursday, May 10, 2012. Audre was a longtime Roswell resident, who recently relocated to Houston to be near her children. Audre was born in Dexter on Jan. 8, 1917, the oldest of four children born to Earl and Johnie Latimer. She attended school in Dexter and Roswell, was a 1933 graduate of Roswell High School, and lived in the Roswell area for most of her life. Audre went to work as Chaves County deputy tax assessor in 1934. She thought this was the best job in Roswell until 1942, when she was “drafted” to work in sub-depot and supply (procurement and contracting) at Roswell Army Air Base to free up military personnel for WWII. Roswell Ar my Air Base became Walker Air Force Base, and Audre remained in the Procurement Department, meeting her future husband, Roy Otto King, at Walker AFB after the war. Audre married Roy in May 1953, shortly after Roy was transferred to Ramey Air Force Base in Puerto Rico. They had two children, Candace Audre King (born in Puerto Rico) and Roy Otto King Jr. (born in Roswell). Both children graduated from Goddard High School, but there were postings at Goose Bay AFB (Labrador, Canada) and Dyess AFB (Abilene, Texas) before a return to Walker AFB. After Walker AFB closed, Audre worked at an Indian T raining School, and back at the county tax assessor’s of fice, before completing her career in government service as an IRS auditor with the Department of Treasury. This retirement was short, as boredom set in and Audre found other things to do. Local residents may remember Audre when she worked at Pants Palace or at Seasons at Sandra’s. Working at a clothing store was a perfect fit; Audre loved all the beautiful clothes. Audre was a member of First United Methodist Church, Beta Sigma Phi, a life member of the Assistance League of Chaves County, and served on the Advisory Board for La Casa de Buena Salud. Audre was preceded in death by her husband (Roy) and brother (Earl Latimer Jr.). She is survived by her two children (Candy and Roy Jr.), five grandchildren (Joseph Roy King, Jason Perry Stegall, Kara Michelle King, Kacie Marie King and Michael Eric Stegall), her brother (Glenn Latimer), her sister (Diane Andress), and several nieces and nephews. The funeral service will be at First United Methodist Church, 200 N. Pennsylvania Ave., at 10 a.m., on Monday, May 21, 2012, with burial afterward next to her husband at the family plot in Hagerman. Friends and family are welcomed to celebrate Audre’s memory.

Floyd Cockrum was born Dec. 29, 1942, in Sesser, Ill., to Stanley and Maude (Harrison) Cockrum. He enlisted in the United States Air Force and was stationed at Walker Air Force Base. After he was honorably discharged, Floyd started Roswell Electric in 1978. A hard worker, Floyd spent countless hours building his business from the ground up. Floyd was a man of noble character. The young men who worked for him throughout the years saw him as a mentor and role model. Many would call him a friend instead of boss. He was an active member of the Roswell community. Floyd taught hunter safety courses and served on the Utilities Commission. Above anything else, Floyd was a family man. He loved and cherished his family dearly. Floyd was preceded in death by his first wife Judy Cockrum; parents Stanley and Maude Cockrum; and brothers, Glen, Noble, Bobby and Billy Cockrum.
Friday, May 18, 2012 Those left to cherish Floyd’s memory are wife Helen Cockrum, of Roswell; son Jamie Cockrum, of Las Cruces; daughter Janice Cockrum, of Albuquerque; sisters, Ruth Miner, of Sesser, and Glenna Piper, of Rendlake Ill.; daughters, Brenda Dear, of Roswell, Ronda McClure, of Roswell, Shawna Satter field, of Roswell, Tamara Spicer, of Roswell and Sharla and L ynn Coats, of Roswell; and grandchildren, Garik, Megan and Kyle Cockrum, Cody Townsend, Heather and Jasmine Powell, Jeremy Graves, Amber and Casey Sopher, Brandon and Kristen Spicer, Kyla Satterfield, Jacob Spicer, Savannah and Genevieve Duran and Connor Coats; 13 great-grandchildren; and so many others who knew him as Pop. The time has come for our Pop to take his journey to a better place. As we say our goodbyes to a VER Y special man, we are reminded of all the wonderful times we spent with him. He was a man of many names: Dwight, Floyd, Hon, Dad, Pop, Pops, Pap-pa and in many cases a good friend. Regardless of his many names, he was the epitome of a man. He was a man with a heart of gold who opened his heart, life, door and home to our Mom Helen, her five daughters, their families, their friends, and all of their life’s trials and tribulations that over the years found the way to their midst. His heart was as true as his words. He said what he meant, and meant what he said. He was honest and open and we always knew where we stood with him. He loved each one of us unconditionally and we knew it. Pop, your love will live on in our hearts, your memories will live on in our minds, and your stories will be shared for generations to come. As you have always said, “your kids are your legacy.” We couldn’t be happier or prouder to be known as your kids. We will truly miss you, Pop!! I love you, Rhonda.

Clora Belle Bartlett
Clora Belle Davis Bartlett went to be with her lord and savior on May 15, 2012, with her family at her side. Services will be held at LaGrone Funeral Chapel, Friday, May 18, 2012, at 2 p.m., with the Rev. Ernie Amador officiating. Interment will follow in South Park Cemetery. Clora Belle Bartlett was born Aug. 10, 1926, to H.R. (Kiah) and Irene Fry Davis, who predeceased her. On July 14, 1943, Clora married the love of her life Fred T. Bartlett. They were married 67 years before Fred’s passing on Dec. 26, 2009. Left to cherish her mem-
ory are her son William Lee Bartlett and his wife Liz, her daughter Fredda Sanders and husband Lorin, all of Roswell; two sisters, Dovie S. Hopper, of Roswell, and Betty Lou Ferrell and husband Bud, of Arizona; six grandchildren, William Freddie Bartlett, Jennifer Ann Johnson, Melissa Mckelvey, and Christa Abbott, all of Roswell, and Russell A. Bartlett, Troy L. Bartlett, and one stepgrandchild Dee Burrows, of Amarillo; nine great-grandchildren; two great-great-grandchildren; many nieces and nephews; and a special friend and caregiver of Fred and her parents Kathy Smith. Her oldest son Russell Troy Bartlett predeceased her in 2004. The family would like to say thank you to her grandaughter, Christa Abbott for the excellent care and love she gave her grandmother the past two years of her life. She knew she was loved every day, and she loved Christa very much. To Lorin Sanders her beloved son-in-law, the family thanks him for opening his home and lovingly taking such good care of Clora during this past two years. He was an angel to her and she loved him very much. Clora was a life member of the Pythian Sisters and served as the grand chief of the state of New Mexico. She was active in politics and worked at the polls. She was a member of the PTA all through the formative years of her children’s education, and was a homeroom mother for all. She was a 40-year member of the Rebekahs in Roswell, and was the noble grand for three years. She spent many tireless hours working in charities for children and for homeless in her early years. She worked during World War II for the war effort while her husband served in Germany and at the Battle of the Bulge. With her young son, she would attend Saturday morning newsreels at the movie theater for information on the war and where her beloved Fred was serving. Clora was a wonderful wife, a loving and caring mother and grandmother and a mentor for all who needed a special friend. She knew no bounds in her love of her family, friends and her love of her lord and savior. Her favorite spiritual song was “I am only 4’11 but I’m going to heaven and it makes me feel 10’ tall.” Her granchildren called her Momo, but to her children she was Mother and she was the true mother exemplified in every action. God gave us an angel to enjoy on Earth and now she is in heaven with her husband the love of her life, and her son Russell, whom she loved and cherished. For us left to grieve, we know where she is and that we will see her again someday. Goodbye, precious Mother, Momo, sister, aunt and friend. We love you and miss you. Pallbearers will be Jeremie Mckelvey, Joshua Mckelvey, Kevin Durbin, all great-grandsons, and Richard Kirkendal, Tommy Ferrell and Tyler Neill. You can come by where Clora lived the past two years to pay your respects and visit with the family. You are welcome. Condolences can be offered online at lagronefuneralchapels.com.

Postal Service to begin closing plants this summer
Roswell Daily Record
WASHINGTON (AP) — The nearly bankrupt U.S. Postal Service is moving forward with a multibilliondollar cost-cutting plan that will close nearly 250 mail processing centers, saying on Thursday it can no longer wait as Congress remains deadlocked over how to help. At a news briefing, Postmaster General Patrick Donahoe said the agency’s mail processing network had simply become too big, given declining first-class mail volume and mounting debt. It will now consolidate nearly 250 plants as originally proposed, including 48 this summer, but will stretch out the remainder over a longer time frame in 2013 and 2014. Earlier this month, nearly half the Senate had written letters to Donahoe asking that he hold off on closing any mail facility until Congress could pass final postal overhaul legislation. The Senate last month passed a bill that would halt many of the closings. The House remains stalled over a separate postal measure allowing for more aggressive cuts. “To return to long-term profitability and financial
stability while keeping mail affordable, we must match our network to the anticipated workload,” Donahoe said. Failure to do so, he stressed, would “create a fiscal hole that the Postal Service will not be able to climb out of.” Under the modified approach, up to 140 processing centers will be consolidated by next February — roughly 48 in August and about 90 next January and February. Closings would be suspended during the Postal Service’s busy election and holiday mail season. Another 89 closings would occur in 2014. The consolidations are initially expected to reduce postal staff by 13,000 and save the struggling mail agency roughly $1.2 billion annually. By the time the full round of cuts is implemented by late 2014, the post office will have 28,000 fewer employees with estimated annual savings of $2.1 billion. The latest postal move comes after vociferous protests from communities across the U.S., particularly those in rural areas, over the mail agency’s initial multibillion-dollar cost-cutting plan to close up to

3,700 post offices and 252 mail processing centers. The Postal Service last week backed off the closing of post offices, saying it would cut costs instead by reducing operating hours in 13,000 mostly rural locations. Thursday’s announcement seeks to allay consumer concer ns about immediate, broad-scale cuts to mail processing centers that would have slowed first-class mail delivery of prescription drugs, newspapers and other services beginning
SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) — New Mexico regulators, who are grappling with how to best regulate the oil and natural gas industry, heard Thursday from energy producers who have seen their costs rise and ranchers who are concerned about contamination. At issue is a set of regulations that govern how oil and gas producers handle drilling wastes in pits, buried tanks, sumps and closed-loop systems. The comments came as the state Oil Conservation Commission considers a request by the industry to revamp the so-called pit rule. A weeklong hearing is under way in Santa Fe. All sides agree on the need to find a way to allow
oil and gas development to continue in New Mexico while ensuring the arid state’s water sources and soil are not contaminated. The debate is fueled by how to do it. “I’m not against drilling, don’t get me wrong,” said Phil Bidegain, an eastern New Mexico rancher who is concer ned about an amendment that calls for reducing the distance between water wells and temporary pits from 500 feet to 100 feet. “Water is a precious commodity, especially in our area,” he said. “One hundred feet is only 33 yards. That’s only 33 steps and when you think of it that way, it’s pretty close.” Bidegain’s family has
been ranching near Tucumcari for 102 years, and he has developed a surface user’s agreement that lays out rules for any oil and gas companies interested in drilling on his ranch. The only line of defense for landowners who allow drilling on their property without such an agreement is the pit rule, he said. The rule was first adopted by the commission in 2008 after dozens of hours of testimony from engineers, economists, environmentalists and ranchers. Environmentalists and some ranchers argue the rule needs to stay intact to ensure water sources as well as wildlife and livestock are protected. Howev-

this summer and would have virtually eliminated the chance for a stamped letter to arrive the next day. Under the new plan, about 80 percent of the U.S. areas that currently enjoy overnight first-class mail delivery will continue to do so through the end of next year. After that, barring congressional action, the Postal Service will proceed with additional steps that could slow first-class mail and reduce overnight delivery more significantly, said Megan Brennan, chief operating of ficer of the
Postal Service. The Postal Service has been grappling with losses as first-class mail volume declines and more people switch to the Internet to communicate and pay bills. The agency has forecast a record $14.1 billion loss by the end of this year. Without changes, it said, annual losses would exceed $21 billion by 2016. Donahoe stressed that even with the mail agency’s latest moves, it still faces mounting losses without congressional action that would give it more leeway to eliminate Saturday mail delivery and reduce health and labor costs. If the House fails to act soon, postal officials say they will face a cash crunch in August and September, when the agency must pay more than $11 billion to the Treasury for future retiree health benefits. Already $13 billion in debt, the health payment obligation will force the agency to run up against its $15 billion debt ceiling, causing it to default on the payments. In many sprawling rural areas like Hope, Alaska, residents say they would have to drive nearly 100 miles for mail services in
“I do think it’s a sign of a larger, more worrisome trend to me that instead of trying to focus on our larger issues in our society, what we’re trying to do is nickel and dime people on sort of the downstream end of everything,” he said. “But that’s a political issue.”
er, the industry contends the regulations need to be amended so producers can remain competitive. An industry group and environmentalists have filed appeals over the regulations. The cases are stalled in state district court, pending the outcome of the hearing before the commission Aside from changing the siting requirements for temporary lined pits, the industry wants to be able to bury drilling mud wastes on site as along as the level of salts and other contaminants are low enough and the distance to groundwater is adequate. The industry also wants to use one large pit for multiple wells.
Rep. James Strickler, RFarmington, testified that oil and gas producers have gone to other states and taken jobs with them because of the rule, costing New Mexico about $1 billion in lost tax revenues. “That’s a tremendous hardship on schools, on our colleges, on highways, on prisons,” he said. “We’re starting to see a little recovery in the economy, but this pit rule, it’s a jobkiller.” It could be next month before the commission makes any decisions on the proposed amendments. One of the top energy producing states in the U.S., New Mexico has 12 state inspectors. More than 50,000 producing wells
come under their purview. New Mexico also is limited when it comes to assessing civil penalties against operators that violate the law and reporting and tracking violations, the report states. Gwen Lachelt, director of Earthworks' Oil and Gas Accountability Project, accused the Oil Conservation Division of failing in its mission. “With their failure, they guarantee irresponsible oil and gas development and put landowners, their water and the environment at risk,” she said. The agency has acknowledged that it’s understaffed, but officials maintain their inspectors are doing a good job.
“My wife’s medical plan is basically that prescription drugs are mailed to her,” said Doug Pope, a semiretired lawyer who lives near Hope, an old gold rush town where the post office faces reduced hours. “There’s a lot of people who will be here for months without going to Anchorage.” Pope says he’s willing to accept moderate postal cuts, explaining that he’s not sure what else can be done and whether politicians in Washington will do anything about it.

celebrate her accomplishment with her. I discussed this with Donna and asked if we could recognize Sara at her son’s party. Donna refused because my ex is having a party for Sara, and her son would be an invited guest but not the celebrated graduate there. I say it’s a different scenario because I’m Sara’s father and if I were remarried, we’d celebrate the step-sibling graduation together. Donna then told me she has some issues with the way Sara behaves at times. I feel this has given me an insight that I don’t like. How should I handle this upcoming graduation and other important issues? MIXED FEELINGS IN MISSOURI
DEAR ABBY UNIVERSAL PRESS SYNDICATE
DEAR ABBY: I am a divorced man with a live-in girlfriend I’ll call Donna. Her two boys also live with us. Donna’s older son will graduate from high school this year, and she has planned a party that her mother and other family members will attend from out of state. My daughter, “Sara,” is graduating from the same high school. Sara has shared her concerns with me that Donna’s family won’t care about celebrating her graduation. I tried to assure her that it’s my day to
DEAR MIXED FEELINGS: Handle the graduation and other important issues by keeping them SEPARATE. While it would be generous for Sara to
be acknowledged at Donna’s son’s party, it isn’t mandatory — and I’m sure the reverse isn’t planned for the party your ex is hosting for Sara. What the circumstances “would be” if you and Donna were married instead of living together is irrelevant because you are not married and the graduates are not step-siblings. However, this does point up that Donna has not warmed to Sara as much as she might have and you might wish she had. And, because it could be a deal-breaker, this is an issue that should be examined carefully in the very near future. #####

clothes, even if I’m accompanying my mom to the grocery store. She goes out wearing sweats and no bra. Sometimes I try to help her by picking out her outfits for the week, but she gets mad when I say anything about her no-bra rule. She says I’m trying to pressure her to be someone she’s not. Maybe I am, but I want her to meet people and go on dates. It feels like she has no pride in what she looks like. I care about her, but I can’t help but see that she could improve.

Dear Readers: With food allergies on the rise, especially among children, many people have an EPINEPHRINE auto-injector on hand. Here is important and potentially lifesaving information that you need to know about it: • Prescriptions come with two injectors for a reason. They should not be separated! The second injector is there in case something goes wrong with the first, or if the first dose wears off and a second is needed. • A practice injector comes with the prescription. Use it! Don’t wait until an actual emergency arises! Know what to do before a crisis. • Epinephrine auto-injectors should be replaced yearly. An expired one may work, but it also might not be as effective. Don’t take a chance! • Always get medical treatment after using epinephrine. It is NOT a substitute for medical care, but it buys you enough time to get medical treatment. Even if the injector works perfectly and the person feels better, medical treatment is a MUST. It also is the only way to receive a new prescription. Hopefully, the need to use epinephrine will never arise, but in case it does, keep these helpful hints in mind. Heloise

Dear Readers: Do you take your digital camera everywhere, as I do? How do you protect it from dirt, dust and damage? Keep the camera in a bag, even if it is a small, sealable plastic bag. This cuts down on moisture and other stuff. If your camera looks dirty, use a soft cloth (a microfiber cloth is perfect) to gently wipe away smudges and fingerprints. On the lens, don’t use anything that will scratch. Very carefully use a soft cloth or eyeglass cleaner. If the battery compartment gets a little dusty, use a pencil eraser to clean the metal contacts and then blow into the compartment to remove the “shavings.” Voila — no more filth! Heloise

Others seem only too happy to pave the way. Your creativity will come into play. Tonight: Paint the town red. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) A lot might be going on around you, especially in your community or workplace. You might only be seeing one facet of a situation. Know that this trait is neither all good nor all bad. You simply perceive things in a comfortable manner. Tonight: Not to be found. CANCER (June 21-July 22) Zero in on what you feel is important. You have a tendency to sell yourself short or become insecure. You’ll do such a great job at covering up your feelings that you might not even know how you really feel. Go for what you want.
