Government fine hardly the end of GM recall saga TOM KRISHER AP AUTO WRITER

DETROIT (AP) — General Motors’ agreement to pay a $35 million federal fine for concealing defects in smallcar ignition switches and to give the government greater oversight of its safety procedures closes one chapter of the automaker’s recall saga. But it’s far from over. Besides agreeing to pay the penalty — the largest ever assessed by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration — GM admitted that it broke the law by failing to quickly tell the government about

problems. The the automaker agreed to report safety problems a lot faster — it only started recalling 2.6 million small cars this February, more than a decade after engineers first found a flaw in the switches. The switches in older model small cars such as the Chevrolet Cobalt and Saturn Ion can slip out of the “run” position and shut down the cars’ engines. That disables the power assisted steering and brakes and can cause drivers to lose control. It also disables the air bags. The company says at least 13 people have died in

crashes linked to the problem, but trial lawyers suing the company say the death toll is at least 53. GM faces issues both in the near -term and longer term related to the recall. Here’s a breakdown: • THE INTERNAL INVESTIGATION: Late this month or early in June, for mer U.S. Attor ney Anton Valukas will finish an investigation for GM into why the company delayed recalling the cars. GM has promised an “unvarnished” report and said it will make at least some of the results public. The company must provide NHTSA with the full report.

• THE CRIMINAL INVESTIGATION: The U.S. Justice Department is investigating GM’s conduct and may bring criminal charges. The same team that got Toyota to agree to a $1.2 billion penalty for hiding unintended acceleration problems from NHTSA is working on the GM case. In the Toyota case, the company agreed to a long statement of facts that included multiple allegations of cover ups. That investigation lasted four years.

of race as one of many factors in selecting candidates or students, which is how affirmative action generally is practiced. Even that looser standard is banned under measures backed by Republicans in seven states that have outlawed government affirmative action. Last month, Republicanappointees on the U.S. Supreme Court, joined by one Democrat, upheld Michigan's voter-approved ban on considering race in any way in college admissions. It was the latest of a series of rulings by the court's conservative majority to limit af fir mative action.

The Republican Party is hiring people to reach out to black and Hispanic communities, and setting goals for the number of minority candidates it will recruit. At the same time, Republican judges are moving closer to a long-held conservative goal of ending affirmative action. It's a delicate dance for the GOP: try to appeal to minorities, whose support has trended toward Democrats, and highlight an increasingly diverse roster of up-and-coming politicians without violating core principles. The party's platform says it opposes "preferences, quotas and set-asides as the best or sole methods through which fairness can be achieved, whether in government, education or corporate boardrooms." Notably, that could leave room for the consideration

California Republicans stress support for immigration

WASHINGTON (AP) — Republican Rep. David Valadao says he's not worried that Congress' failure to pass immigration legislation will hurt his prospects for re-election to a district in California's agricultural heartland. Same goes for GOP Rep. Jef f Denham, who represents a neighboring district in the state's San Joaquin Valley. Still, the California congressmen are making sure voters know they support an immigration overhaul. They're aware that Democrats will try to tur n the congressional gridlock into

an advantage during this year's midterm elections. The U.S. Chamber of Commerce spent $300,000 on television ads in Valadao's district, noting that he is the son of immigrants. Denham highlights an award he received from the nation's largest Latino advocacy group for "putting sound immigration policy over party politics." He was the first Republican cosponsor of a sweeping immigration bill now stalled in the House. "People have seen I've shown real leadership in driving this issue forward,"

Denham said. Sounding a lot like Democrats, some Republican members of California's congressional delegation are making the case that changing the law is necessary to help farmers and businesses and to keep families together. But they also are members of a party that has stifled immigration-overhaul efforts, providing a political opening for Democrats in a state where immigrants are a crucial underpinning of the economy. A recent national survey conducted by the Pew

Research Center found that about 7 in 10 Hispanics say it's important that new immigration legislation pass this year. And a California Field Poll last year found that 9 in 10 California voters support allowing immigrants who are in the U.S. illegally to stay and become citizens if they work, learn English and pay back taxes. Valadao, Denham and about a dozen other Republican lawmakers nationally are in districts that have a sizeable and growing Latino population. Latinos make up more than half of the

New web site maps where, how often oil, gas spills occur in New Mexico

CARLSBAD AP) — A new website has mapped where oil- and gas-related spills take place in New Mexico, and it shows their numbers have increased in recent years. The Center for Western Priorities built the online map using years of data gathered by the state Energy, Minerals and Natural Resources Department's Oil Conservation Division, the Carlsbad Current-Argus reported Saturday. The Denver -based, nonpartisan organization monitors spills caused by crude oil, drilling fluids and methane releases, among others, and then shows their locations on the map. It does the same for Colorado. Spills occur almost twice a day in New Mexico, according to the data. It shows about 470 spills reported in southeastern New Mexico in 2008 jumped to more than 600 in 2013. Greg Zimmerman, policy director for the group, said the spills show the fallout from so much oil and gas development in the state. "I think there are some spills that are preventable, and as there is more development, you would think there would be more spills," he said. According to the Oil Conservation Division, more than 900 spills were reported in all of New Mexico in 2013. Going back to 2000, there have been more than 10,300 spills. That amounts to 102 million gallons of oil, drilling fluids and other toxic materials. Wally Drangmeister, New Mexico

This April 9, photo shows oil rigs in the Loco Hills field in Eddy County, near Artesia, New Mexico, one of the most active regions of the Permian Basin.

Oil and Gas Association spokesman, said 900 spills is relatively small when considering there are more than 50,000 producing wells in the state. The spills themselves are not often cause for concern, he added.

"In general many of them are small, and most of the time, (oil and gas companies) are able to capture it in liquid form without an impact on

groundwater," Drangmeister said.

But Zimmerman said the industry could improve when it comes to planning operations.

action ban, said the sort of routine outreach that political parties perform is prohibited to public universities under laws like Michigan's. "They can say, 'If you're a person of color, you would not feel out of place in our party,'" Rosenbaum said. "But if a university said that, there would be 1,000 lawsuits tomorrow." The GOP is spending $60 million to expand its outreach among demographic groups with whom it historically has struggled, including Hispanics, African-Americans and Asian-Americans. A new initiative aims to recruit 300 women and 200 minorities to run for state and local office. Republicans already bested their prior goal last year of finding 100 new Hispanic candidates.

"My constituents understand I've been in the middle of it," Valadao said. "I've been vocal. I've signed onto legislation. I continue to put pressure on the leadership."

Democrats are questioning just how dedicated Valadao and Denham are, noting they declined to sign a petition that would have forced House Speaker John Boehner to schedule a vote on an immigration bill. No Republican joined the effort.

to trumpet its efforts in minority areas it once shunned. In December, Republican National Committee Chair man Reince Priebus was in Michigan for the opening of an office in inner-city Detroit and to announce the appointment of a state director of AfricanAmerican outreach.

Party officials say they see no contradiction between such efforts to diversify and long-held skepticism of some types of af fir mative action. "Republicans believe in equitable access to education, not special treatment solely based on race," said Tara Wall, an RNC spokeswoman. She said the party believes economic-based affirmative action may be a better way to promote diversity.

done, I just figured there is no place that I could work and use my social skills more than here. Because here, we are counselor, we’re a friend, we’re a social worker. We just play so many roles and wear so many different hats. I’m a cook or just whatever the kids need. It’s a very fulfilling job is what it is. I love it, I love it.” McKelvey said helping children is a great source of satisfaction, “especially those who are not as fortunate as other children.” She said about 95 percent of the children, ages 5 through 15, who are current members are considered at-risk or needy. McKelvey said providing supervision for children after school or during summers is far better than the children being home alone and unsupervised. “The Boys & Girls Club is an opportunity for the kids that don’t have somewhere to go, a safe place, better than the streets,” McKelvey said. “It’s really an opportunity for some of the kids that don’t have that. This place offers them a lot of opportunity. We try and teach our kids responsibility, integrity, to be a good, well-rounded citizen. We have kids that have graduated out of here that would have never graduated. They’ll still come and they’ll bring their kids over.” McKelvey said the local Boys & Girls Clubs are about more than playtime. “I’m more of an educator, so I’m a real stickler about the afterschool program,” she said. “My thing is helping them succeed in their school work and be successful in school. So, I enjoy helping them be successful.” The clubs’ afterschool program, from 3 to 7 p.m. Mondays through Fridays, has an emphasis on education. Volunteers come in on Mondays and Tuesdays to assist the clubs’ five employees with tutoring. McKelvey said the clubs average about 65 children a day. “During our school year, we have what we call Power Hour, and our Power Hour is just that, one hour,” McKelvey said. “The kids that have homework go in one room. And the kids that don’t have homework go in another room and they have to do something that is still educational. And then, the kids that have homework, we tutor them and help them complete their homework and stuff like that. And when they’re done with their homework, they go into Power Hour, if it’s still going on. “They have to do Power Hour first, then they have to do one hour of physical activity. They can chose. There’s usually basketball, baseball, kickball, flag football, there’s something going on. And then you’ve got the girls that don’t want to do none of that so there’s aerobics or the dance classes and stuff like that. “After that, the game rooms and the gym are opened.” The clubs have two game rooms, equipped with a TV, video games, pool table, and a foosball table that is “not the greatest of shape, but it works,” McKelvey said. Pool tournaments, 3-point basketball shooting tournaments and video game tournaments add a competitive aire of challenge and excitement.


“So there’s something going on so the kids can win prizes and things like that,” McKelvey said. “They do enjoy tournaments like the pool tournaments and stuff. And the girls love doing arts and crafts. I think the thing they most like to do is they like to be engaged in sports. I see a lot of the kids, their big interest is basketball, and of course the video games.” Regardless of the activity, the social interaction is what is most important, McKelvey said. A sign at the clubs’ front door says the bullying stops here. “They’re getting along, playing with each other, and eating,” McKelvey said. “They like to get fed.” McKelvey’s daughter-in-law, Erica Salcido, is the clubs’ receptionist, giving McKelvey the opportunity to see her grandchildren on a daily basis. “My grandchildren, they participate in the Boys & Girls Club,” McKelvey said. “My 3-year-old grandson lives in Albuquerque. He loves to be at the club. He’s a club kid. My granddaughter does dance. She’s a very active little girl. She’s always here when she can be here.” The Roswell Boys & Girls Club, located at 201 S. Garden Ave., is gearing up for the summer season. The clubs will be open 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, from June 2 through July 25. The summer program costs non-members $180 per child, per month. “For members, they get a discounted rate because they come and they participate in our program all year long,” McKelvey said. “And we do some things on Saturdays, special events and stuff. That’s what we’re doing right now, we’re registering for our summer program.” McKelvey said she expects about 150 children will register for the clubs’ summer program. The summer season promises to be busy, if not controlled chaos. “You know what, I’m used to it,” McKelvey said. “I think those are the mother instincts. I can hear three kids talking at one time. I can be talking to one, see what’s going on over here, and be listening to something over here. I’ve learned how to multi-task.” The clubs’ pool will unfortunately be closed for the third summer in a row, McKelvey said. But there’s always another chance someone of wealth will again step up and provide financial assistance as actor, director, producer Denzel Washington did several years ago when he donated $50,000 to the Roswell clubs. “It was a really rough year,” McKelvey recalled. “We were fixing to have close our doors, and we were not wanting to do that. And then Mr. Denzel Washington — God just happened to put him in the right place at the right time. He gave $50,000.” Asked about Washington’s connection to Roswell or the Boys & Girls Clubs, McKelvey was unsure. “He was filming a movie in Albuquerque,” she said. “I’m not sure how he got wind, I think they heard that we were fixing to have to close our doors. His assistant called and talked with (program director) Art (Garcia) and told Art that he would be interested in meeting with him. So Art drove to Albuquerque and met with Mr. Denzel Washington. It was a one-time thing.”

Sunday, May 18, 2014 resulted in recalls. On Thursday, GM announced it would recall another 2.7 million cars and trucks. So far this year the company has had 24 recalls with a total of 11.2 million vehicles. GM is working to get new ignition switches as well as parts for the other recalls from suppliers. Its ignition switch maker plans to add two assembly lines this summer to the one already working. GM expects to have all the switches made by Oct. 4. • BOTTOM LINE: So far, recall-related charges are up to $1.5 billion, mostly for repairing vehicles. GM also faces


dozens of lawsuits from families of those killed in crashes and from people who were hurt. The company has hired compensation expert Kenneth Feinberg to negotiate settlements. Lawyers say they have at least 400 possible cases against GM. That could cost the company billions. GM also faces lawsuits from shareholders and people whose cars have lost value. In addition, GM must pay NHTSA $7,000 for every day it fails to answer a list of questions from the agency. The fines started April 4 and already are above $300,000.

Free speech not so free when discussing gay rights

Once, Social Security was the “third rail” of politics. Touch it and face political death. Now it is homosexuality. Criticize anything gay people do and you risk ostracism, fines, suspension or loss of your livelihood. Michael Sam, the first openly gay player to be drafted by a National Football League team — the St. Louis Rams picked him 249th in the last round — is being treated by the media and those in the gay rights movement as the equivalent of an early American pioneer. Miami Dolphins safety Don Jones, apparently, didn’t get the memo. Jones tweeted “OMG” and “horrible” after he saw Sam and his boyfriend kiss each other live on ESPN. His tweet was quickly taken down, but the political correctness police swooped in anyway. Jones has been fined and suspended. He’s also being forced to attend “educational training” to



get his “mind right,” to borrow a phrase from the film “Cool Hand Luke.” This sounds like the old communist “re-education” camps. Dolphins Coach Joe Philbin called Jones’ comment “inappropriate and unacceptable.” Jones issued a statement that read like it had been written by a lawyer, apologizing for his “inappropriate” tweet and taking “full responsibility” for his comment. How quickly things have changed from the recent experiences of Tim Tebow. When the quarterback heroically led the Denver Broncos to a playoff victory in 2012 and dropped to one

knee, as he often did to express gratitude to God (a move that quickly became known as “Tebowing,” which spawned countless YouTube parodies), he was widely ridiculed by many of the same entities that now defend Michael Sam, including some NFL players and even “Saturday Night Live,” which in a skit had “Jesus” offering Tebow advice while sitting next to him on a locker room bench. When the Broncos released Tebow, he was mocked again, not only for his faith, but for claiming to be a virgin who wanted to save himself for marriage. In an increasingly secular and licentious culture this sort of thinking and expression, apparently, must be silenced. During Tebow’s brief professional career, TV ratings spiked, jerseys and other gear with Tebow’s name on it sold well and, according to Ad Age, “In terms of

Roswell Daily Record

influence, Mr. Tebow is now in the top 40 of 3,000 celebs ... on par with Tom Hanks, Lady Gaga, Taylor Swift, Jennifer Aniston and Steven Spielberg.” Yet, Tebow endured a sometimes silent and often shouted campaign to brand him in a negative way. He was called “polarizing.” It was said he had “baggage,” though his “bags” were considerably lighter than many other professional athletes who have had drug and alcohol problems, incidents with guns at strip clubs and numerous out-of-wedlock children. The Nation’s Dave Zirin revealed the secular left’s real problem with Tebow when he wrote, “(Tebow) is a religious figure in a country that is uncomfortable talking (about) religion.” Really? I would venture to guess there are probably more people attending church on Sunday mornings than attending NFL

football games on Sunday afternoon. Such is the bias of those who hold disdain for people of strong faith because it apparently exposes flaws in themselves they prefer not to see. After the Broncos cut Tebow, haters took to the comment page of The Huffington Post: “Awwwww. I bet this makes the Baby Jesus weep. T im should have prayed more.” “Hey Tim, are you getting the message now? Nothing fails like prayer.” “We’re all going to h--l and we’re excited about it. Don’t be jealous.” “Where is your God now, Tebow?” NFL players who joined in the mockery were not fined, disciplined or forced into education training camp. Such is the cultural double standard between See THOMAS, Page A5

Job losses and other sequester fairy tales

When Congress and President Barack Obama were embroiled in a fight over raising the debt ceiling yet again in 2011, and Republicans vowed not to approve another increase without debt reduction efforts, an agreement was made to automatically implement more than $1 trillion in acrossthe-board “cuts” over a 10-year period if no other plan was agreed upon by early 2013. This “sequester” option was supposed to be so distasteful that both parties would feel compelled to negotiate a compromise in order to avoid it, but the deadline came and went and the sequestration went into effect. A recent U.S. Government Accountability Office report reviewed 23 federal agencies to determine how they were affected by, and responded to, the sequester. So what draconian cuts and economic devastation hath the sequester wrought? According to the GAO, the sequester led to an agonizing total of ... one layoff. That’s right. The severe cuts that the White House said were going to “threaten thousands of jobs and the economic security of the middle class,” the coldhearted evisceration that was going to slash government services from food safety to military readiness to emergency preparedness to mental health programs to meals for the sick and elderly to teachers and school programs (it’s for the children, after all) resulted in a grand total of a single government job loss. That unfortunate employee, by the way, was let go from the U.S. Parole Commission, part of the Department of Justice. The disparity between reality and the Chicken Little warnings issued by leaders of both parties was not lost on Sen. Tom Coburn, R-Okla. “Despite relentless warnings about the dire consequences of sequestration’s budget cuts, it appears sequestration resulted in only one layoff,” he said in a statement. “While that’s good news for federal employees and other workers, it is devastating to the credibility of Washington politicians and administration officials who spent months — and millions of dollars — engaging in a coordinated multi-agency cabinet-level public relations campaign to scare the American people.” Coburn continued, “Taxpayers expect us to root our predictions in fact, not ideology and spin. The facts seem to say the experts underestimated sequestration’s impact by between 99,999 and 1,599,999 jobs, according to two frequently-cited estimates by Goldman Sachs and the Congressional Budget Office.” It is because politicians on both sides of the aisle continue to engage in scaremongering and throw bogus statistics and projections at citizens so they can grow their favorite government programs and protect their special interests that the country has lost faith in government. No wonder Congress’ approval rating is down to 10 percent or 15 percent, according to the most recent Economist/YouGov and Gallup polls, respectively. If those in government hope to regain any of that credibility, they will have to start dealing honestly with facts and figures. They will, furthermore, have to get serious about making the budget cuts — real cuts — that they promised in order to address the rapid growth of government debt that really will crush the economic security of the middle class if left untamed.

As the editor of the Roswell Daily Record I personally want to thank the four candidates running for county sheriff and the two running for magistrate judge for responding to the newspaper’s Q&A that was published in Thursday’s newspaper. It is clear from reading their responses that each candidate took the editor’s assignment seriously and responded with well-written and thoughtful answers. Also, although the candidates are busy with jobs and families, all six of them returned their answers to me within a relatively short window of time. Working at newspaper for nearly 20 years, I’ve become a bit jaded from my experiences that there will always be one



or two stragglers that you have to call 15 times. Or, someone will go completely off base and send something back that isn’t even close to what you asked for. In my interactions with the candidates on the phone and in person, every one has been polite and respectful. Though I’ve only lived in Roswell for three weeks and still wet behind the ears, I believe all of these gentlemen are sincere in their commit-

LETTERS Dear Editor: As I write this letter, I am trying to be as tolerant and objective as possible regarding the very apparent bias shown by the Roswell Daily Record toward some of the candidates vying for positions in the upcoming primary election. One would hope that journalists with any degree of competency would remain ethical in reporting a story and not try to sway public opinion by stating halftruths and innuendo, either in print or by caricature. I read with interest the editorial letter written by Mr. Andrew J. Cloutier in which he correctly states that Mr. Keith Bell has stepped far beyond common decency, and even journalistic license cannot mask his obvious personal attack on my son, Bobby Arnett. Mr. Bell’s cartoon tries to make fun of Bobby by placing him in a Boy Scout uniform sitting next to his opponent during a candidate forum. In my opinion, and that of countless others, it is a point of pride that my son did in fact obtain the rank of Eagle Scout. We are quite proud of this and believe that Bobby will apply the tenants learned during his scouting years to the office of magistrate judge. Bobby will treat people with respect and apply firm but fair punishment for crime’s committed.

ment to serving the citizens of Chaves County. But only one man can be sheriff and only one can be magistrate judge. It is now up to you, the voters of Chaves County, to decide individually who you want to serve in these two offices. With early voting in progress from now until May 31, there is plenty of opportunity to get out and vote. You can’t use bad weather on election day as an excuse not to vote. For those who prefer the good, old-fashioned method of going to your local poll location, the primary is on June 3. Polls open at 7 a.m. and close at 7 p.m. Poll locations will be published in the newspaper as it

gets closer to the election. According to the Chaves County Clerk’s Office, voter turnout for primaries averages between 15 to 20 percent. Though this is a much better turnout than in many parts of country, it is still low when compared to turnouts at general elections. Since all of the candidates are Republicans, the next sheriff and magistrate judge will be determined in the primaries. Though there are four candidates in the sheriff’s race, the winner only needs a simple majority. In many states if three or more challengers are in a primary, a candidate must get “50 percent plus one vote” to

When we put our lives against the backdrop of the spectrum of time, our time here on Earth is just a drop in the bucket compared to the history of mankind. What I am saying is that whether we are given 40 years on this planet or 80, compared to millenniums of mankind, we live for just a brief moment. One of my heroes is John Wooden. Coincidentally, he and I have shared the same birthday for over half a century. He passed a few years ago after living 99 years. The impact he made on this world and individuals in it is unquantifiable. From the players he coached on the UCLA college basketball teams to the lives he touched through his motivational talks and writings, his life has made this world a better place.

Coach Wooden has written many books, several of which I own. His writings are not about the glory days when his team won ten national championships over a 12-year span and set a record with 88 consecutive victories. His writings talk about how life should be lived and

move on to the general election. If there isn’t a candidate with a 50 percent majority, then a runof f is held between the top two finishers. In New Mexico there are no runoff elections, with one exception, according to the Chaves County Clerk’s Office. A charter city, such as Albuquerque, can decide whether it wants to hold runof fs in its municipal elections.

provide tools for each of us to consider and apply to our lives. If we could spend just one evening with Coach Wooden he would begin by telling us the truth he found at the core of his life: “There is only one kind of life that truly wins, and that is the one that places faith in the hands of the Savior. Until that is done, we are on an aimless course that runs in circles and goes nowhere. Material possessions, winning scores, and great reputations are meaningless in the eyes of the Lord, because He knows what we really are and that is all that matters.” Besides living a successful life spiritually, Coach Wooden lived a successful family life. He was married to his wife Nellie for 53 years. She passed away in I personally don’t like not having a runoff between the top two vote-getters, but that is the way things are until the State Legislature votes to change it. With no runoff and no Democrats as challengers in this fall’s general election, Chavis County voters only have one shot to elect their next sheriff and magistrate judge. Please do you part in the democratic process and vote in the local primaries.

1991. After her death, on the 21st of each month he wrote a letter to her telling her how much he loved her, missed her, and how he couldn’t wait to see her again. He would then put each letter with his others on top of her pillow tied together by a yellow ribbon. When asked about his beloved wife and his death, Coach Wooden would smile and say, “I’m not afraid to die, death is my only chance to be with her again.” If asked about his philosophy of life Coach would share thoughts like, “There is a choice you have to make in everything you do. And you must always keep in mind the choice you make makes you.” “The smallest good deed is better than the best intention,” or “Don’t permit the fear of failure to prevent effort. We are all imperfect and will fail on occasions, but the fear of failure is the greatest failure of all.” Coach Wooden was a “take action” man. He did not like excuses and believed that excuses are the biggest deterrent that keep a person from accom-

plishing his or her potential. It is so much easier to come up with excuses than to take action and make things happen. Coach once said, “Never make excuses. Your friends don’t need them and your foes won’t believe them.” Coach Wooden regularly pointed out the importance of integrity. Some of his comments include, “You can do more good by being good than in any other way.” “Tell the truth. That way you don’t have to remember a story,” “What is right is more important than who is right,” and “Ability may get you to the top, but it takes character to keep you there.” Each of these quotes are words of wisdom for us to heed. One of his leadership keys is to model the person you want others to be. As he spoke and wrote on these core values, he lived them himself. A most effective method of impacting others’ lives is to not say “Here is what you need to do,” but “Follow me.” There is a large gorge between these two concepts. My favorite John Wooden

quote is “Be more concerned with your character than with your reputation. Character is what you really are; reputation is merely what you are perceived to be.” What he is saying is you can control you. Sometimes that is all you can control. But what you do with you is 100% up to you. If you live a life of integrity and high morals, that is the best you can do.

My challenge to you today is to learn from this man who lived just a half year shy of a century. He spoke and wrote much wisdom. He set his bar high and expected others to do so also. He modeled “follow me” leadership. I will close with a quote from John Wooden that really sums up his humble life and how he would want to be remembered. He said, “I am just a common man who is true to his beliefs.” Be a common man, but set your beliefs high, and then remain true to them. Just a thought...

Coach Wooden is saying that if you had to choose between character and reputation, this is an easy choice. Choose character. If you are making the best character choices, one choice at a time, then don’t worry about your reputa-

Politics, not science, makes climate change the issue it is BY TOM MCDONALD

Last week, the latest report about climate change, the National Climate Assessment, came out and it wasn’t pretty. At least that’s what I heard, since I haven’t read it. Now before you criticize me to not doing my homework, allow me to point out that only a tiny fraction of the people out there have read it, including the pundits and politicians who speak about it with feigned authority. The report is 840 pages

long, and yet minutes after its public release people were lining up for or against its findings. All those pundits and politicians didn’t need to read it. They had their side’s talking points, and that’s all that seems to matter these days, when truth regularly takes a back seat to opinion. The assessment’s findings — which you can find, and read, at — appears to be based on science. But I don’t say that because I’m a expert on such matters, nor do I


say it because I’m some sort of tree-hugging liberal environmentalist. Instead, my ability to reason leads me to a conclusion that the best way to determine if the world’s climate is changing, and that human activity is a cause, is to use hard data and scientific analysis. The people best equipped to do that are the scientists, the real experts, and an overwhelming majority of them say we’re on the brink of an environment catastrophe.

That said, it’s not the scientists or even the tree-

It is true that Bobby does not have 30-plus years of law enforcement background, but this shoud be a plus instead of being portrayed by Mr. Bell as a detriment. He will not have the baggage that goes along with someone whose decision-making ability is rooted in seeing the worst society has to offer. I most certainly agree with Mr. Cloutier that the Roswell Daily Record owes Bobby Arnett an apology for providing a platform to Mr. Bell.

Memorial Day weekend will be huge in Roswell

I’ve been hearing rumblings and it’s true! Almost all graduation ceremonies in Roswell have been scheduled on one upcoming weekend. It begins on Thursday, May 22, with University High, followed by Goddard on Friday, Roswell High and Gateway Christian on Saturday the 24th. (Valley Christian Academy is a week ahead of them all, with graduation day on the 17th.) Meanwhile, on Friday, May 23, a large number of NMMI cadets will be commissioned as Second Lieutenants, and the Institute’s Commencement ceremony will occur on Saturday.

Yep, there’s more! On Friday, the annual Hike It and Spike It competition will begin here in Roswell and it will end on Sunday,

reside, but that’s precisely why they’re so pivotal in the process. Late last year, a Pew Research survey found that nearly half (46 percent) of all Republicans and Republican leaners believe global warming is real, but you wouldn’t know that by the noisemakers. Tea party conservatives still hold sway over the GOP, and only 25 percent of them believe in global war ming, while among the rest of the GOP, 61 percent believe it’s happening. There are actually a lot of moderates in the Republican Party. Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jon Huntsman and Tim Pawlenty are three that come to mind (here in New Mexico we actually lost one of the few remaining liberal

So where does our own Republican gover nor, Susana Martinez, stand on the issue? When she first ran for governor in 2010, she expressed disbelief in a scientific consensus, and since becoming governor her actions support that disbelief. She even tried to appoint Harrison Schmitt, who does not believe human activity is contributing to climate change, as head of the state’s Energy Department. I have this crazy notion that Martinez could place herself on the national

There are many people who will be celebrating graduation and other events in one way or another. As parents, grandparents, friends, relatives and neighbors, we are immensely proud of those who are graduating or receiving military commissions. We appreciate their ef fort and hard work to achieve these important steps in their lives. Such events deserve celebration. And so, I want to remind us to celebrate safely. Sometimes, our graduates are so elated about graduating, so happy to hit that benchmark, they decide to

If she were to come out and say she has concluded that we must address climate change in a way that protects both the environment and our economy, she’d be praised by moderate Republicans, win reelection as governor by a landslide (who else would the deniers support?) and be placed up not as a VP candidates but for the presidency itself! Of course, that’s a ridiculous notion. She’s already in with Sarah Palin and the Koch brothers, so her bed is laid. Still, she’s generally a moderate Republican, and that’s been the secret to her success so far. In this state of mostly centrist voters, a move to the right

celebrate in very dangerous and unsafe ways. Specifically, they make the choice to drink and drive, or do drugs, or to participate in other illegal and dangerous activities, all in the name of celebrating what should be a happy occasion. As a result, we often hear of some tragic accident which has resulted in the death or some life-changing injury to these young people. Such incidents make us incredibly sad and heartbroken. Parents, and in some cases grandparents, can and should play a role in “graduation safety” as well. An article in a Huntsville, Alabama, newspaper offers Graduation T ips, mostly directed at parents. The article suggests that parents should know the Who,

She may not be able to shed herself of the politics of climate change, but she has already expressed her support for a balanced approach that protects the environment while spurring the economy. That’s a reasonable position, but it’s still political. And that’s where the problem with this whole issue lies: Instead of turning to science, too many people turn to politics for their “facts.” Therein lies the greatest deception of all.

These do not have to be overly restrictive, but should highlight the need for safety. Parents should get involved, perhaps directly, and as the article notes, such involvement may be the largest deterrent to inappropriate behavior. Parents might even offer to throw the graduation party. Of course, that must not include providing alcohol or anything else which could endanger people or create a civil liability to the property owners. Therefore, I just want to remind graduates, new Second Lieutenants, Hike

Many of the schools will be having Project Celebration activities. Your parents and friends have worked hard to make these events possible. Businesses within the community have contributed goods, time and services on your behalf. If you are able, go to your school’s Project Celebration! Have fun! But under any circumstances, be safe. Graduation is a wonderful time for you and you will want your memories of graduation to be joyful.


SANTA FE (AP) — Someone stole the tail off the donkey. The Santa Fe New Mexican reports the metal sculpture of a burro that stands at one end of Santa Fe’ Burro Alley was recently vandalized and its tail was ripped off. Now, the city may have to spend around $3,000 to replace the tail on one of the most photographed pieces of public art in downtown Santa Fe. So far, police have no clues on any possible tail bandits and is offering a $1,000 reward. The city also has no plans to remove the sculpture. Officials say the city may pay an artist to fix it. The sculpture by artist Charles Southard, part of the city’s collection of about 75 pieces of public art, was commissioned in 1988. It’s valued at $12,500.

Jobless rate was 6.8 percent in April

ALBUQUERQUE (AP) — New Mexico’s unemployment rate dropped to 6.8 percent in April, down from 7 percent in March and 6.9 percent a year ago. The state Workforce Solutions Department said Friday that the state’s economy lost 4,400 jobs over the year. Over the year, the sector with the largest job gain was financial activities, which added 2,200 jobs since April 2013. Meanretrial trade while, remained strong and added 1,400 jobs and mining had 1,300 additional jobs. Education and health services, leisure and hospitality, transportation, warehousing and utilities added 200 jobs each. Government employment lost 2,800 jobs over the year, mostly at the local and federal levels, while manufacturing lost 2,000 jobs. Construction lost 1,600 jobs, and the professional and business services industry lost 2,100 jobs.

Wildfire containment reaches 50 percent

SILVER CITY (AP) — Crews have containment lines around 50 percent of a southwestern New Mexico wildfire but say weather conditions could spark smaller fires. Fire managers say crews are working Saturday along the edge of the 9-squaremile Signal Fire burning in the Gila National Forest. They say high winds and dryness make the ignition of spot fires within the blaze’s perimeters extremely likely.

Authorities say the rising temperatures will make the next five days a critical period for fire activity. Nearly 700 firefighters and other personnel are assigned to the fire. Aircraft also are on hand to drop retardant and water on the fire. The human-caused fire started burning in timber and grass in rugged terrain about 10 miles north of Silver City on Sunday.

Wrong-way driver faces DUI charge

SAN FELIPE (AP) — Authorities say a Louisiana woman only suffered minor injuries after her vehicle went the wrong way down a New Mexico interstate, colliding head-on with a FedEx semi-truck. New Mexico State Police say calls to 911 came in around 4:15 a.m. Saturday reporting a wrong-way driver on I-25 near San Felipe. Officers say 20-year-old Elizabeth Elliot drove northbound on southbound lanes and then collided with the semi. They say her vehicle came to a rest on the right shoulder. Police say the Fed-Ex driver was not injured. Authorities say Elliot, of Baton Rouge, Louisiana, showed signs of being intoxicated. She was booked into Sandoval County Detention Center on four charges including DWI and reckless driving. Police are investigating how she was able to obtain alcohol despite being underage.

Thousands flee, 25 die in record Balkan floods

MAGLAJ, Bosnia (AP) — Packed into buses, boats and helicopters, carrying nothing but a handful of belongings, tens of thousands fled their homes Saturday in Bosnia and Serbia to escape the worst flooding in a century. Rapidly rising rivers surged into homes, sometimes reaching up to the second floors, sending people climbing to rooftops for rescue. Hundreds were also evacuated in Croatia. Authorities said 25 people have died but warned the death toll could rise. Tens of thousands of homes were left without electricity or drinking water. Landslides triggered by the floods also raised the risk of injury or death from land mines left over from Bosnia’s 1992-95 war. The landslides swept away

many of the carefully placed war ning signs around the minefields. Three months’ worth of rain has fallen on the region in three days this week, creating the worst floods since records began being kept 120 years ago. Observed from the air, almost a third of Bosnia, mostly its northeast corner, resembled a huge muddy lake, with houses, roads and rail lines submerged. Malagic, a Admir spokesman for Bosnia’s Security Ministry, said about a million people — over a quarter of the country’s population — live in the affected area. “Bosnia is facing a horrible catastrophe,” said Bakir Izetbegovic, the chairman of the Bosnian three-man presidency. “We are still not fully aware of actual dimensions of the catastrophe ... we will have to take

Surviving Turkish miner says company to blame for disaster SAVASTEPE, Turkey (AP) — Miner Erdal Bicak believes he knows why so many of his colleagues died in Turkey’s worst mining disaster: company negligence. And he knows one other thing — he’s never going back down any mine again. Bicak, 24, had just ended his shift Tuesday and was making his way to the surface when managers ordered him to retreat because of a problem in the Soma coal mine in western Turkey. Workers gathered in one area to hastily put on gas masks. “The company is guilty,” Bicak told The Associated Press, adding that managers had machines that measure methane gas levels. “The new gas levels had gotten too high and they didn’t tell us in time.” The miner also said government safety inspectors never visited the lower reaches of the Soma mine and have no idea of how bad conditions get. Government and mining officials have insisted, however, that the disaster that killed 301 workers was not due to negligence and the mine was inspected regularly. Akin Celik, the Soma mine’s operations manager, has said thick smoke from the underground fire killed many miners who had no gas masks. High levels of carbon dioxide and carbon monoxide have also been a problem for rescue workers as well. Bicak, whose leg was badly injured and in a cast, recounted his miracu-

lous escape late Friday while at a candle-lit vigil for Soma victims in the town square of nearby Savastepe. On Saturday, rescue workers retrieved the bodies of the last two miners missing in the disaster, putting the death toll at 301, Energy Minister Taner Yildiz said. He said 485 miners escaped or were rescued. “Until today we had focused on search and rescue efforts. Now we will be focusing on investigations, on what will happen about production,”


BANGKOK (AP) — A military plane carrying senior Lao government officials crashed Saturday in a wooded area as it approached an airport in the country’s northeast, killing at least five people, including the defense minister and other high-ranking members of the authoritarian country’s ruling party. Lao National Television showed video of the mangled wreckage of the plane, with smoke rising from its badly charred remains. The footage showed rescuers pulling away pieces of aircraft debris and trying to dig through the remaining fuselage with shovels, as med-

ical crews stood by watching. About 18 people were believed to be on board the plane, which left Vientiane, Laos’ capital, early Saturday morning to bring the group to an official ceremony in Xiangkhoung province, about 470 kilometers (290 miles) away, said Thai Foreign Ministry spokesman Sek Wannamethee. Earlier reports had said about 20 people were on board. The Ukrainian-made Antonov AN-74TK-300 crashed in Xiangkhoung’s Pek district, where authorities were “helping to rescue the survivors,” according to Lao state news agency KPL,

Yildiz said.

“The true cause of the accident will be assessed ... through dif ferent dimensions,” he added. “There will be lessons to draw for the mining world.”

Public anger has surged in the wake of the Soma coal mine fire. Police used tear gas and water cannon Friday to disperse protesters in Soma who were demanding that Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s government resign.

which cited an announcement from the Prime Minister’s Office. The brief official statement did not say how many people had died in the crash or survived.

Among those confirmed killed were Defense Minister Douangchay Phichit and his wife, said Nipat Thonglek, the Thai Defense Ministry’s permanent secretary.

Douangchay was also one of Laos’ deputy prime ministers and a high-ranking

member of its Politburo, the main decision-making body for the nation’s all-powerful Lao People’s Revolutionary Party, which has ruled the single-party state since 1975. Others killed in the crash included Minister of Public Security Thongbane Sengaphone, Vientiane Gov. Sukhan Mahalad and at least one other senior ruling party official, Sek said.

Summit combats Boko Haram funds PARIS (AP) — Boko Haram has ample funds, highly sophisticated weaponry and advanced training with some of the world’s most experienced terrorists, the French president said Saturday as he and African leaders grappled with how to combat the Islamic extremist group whose reach extends to five countries. Hours after two more attacks in Boko Haram strongholds — one in Nigeria that left a village torched and 40 people dead and another in Cameroon — the leaders agreed to improve policing of frontiers, share intelligence, and trace the weapons and cash that are the group’s lifeblood. At the summit in Paris intended to hammer out a plan to find and free 276 schoolgirls being held hostage by Boko Haram, intelligence officials from the U.S., Europe and Africa shared information while heads of state and top diplomats tackled policy. “This group is armed, with heavy weapons of an unimaginable sophistication and the ability to use them,” said French President Francois Hollande. He said the weapons came from chaotic Libya, and the training took place in Mali before the ouster of its al-Qaida linked Islamist leaders.

As for the money, Hollande said its origins were murky.

“Boko Haram is acting clearly as an al-Qaida operation,” said Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan, who had only reluctantly accepted outside help after years of insisting the group was a local problem.

Cameroon, which French of ficials said until recently also treated Boko Haram as a purely Nigerian issue, has become increasingly involved. The attack late Friday against a Chinese engineering firm’s camp left at least 10 people missing and one person dead. China is a major investor in the region, helping build infrastructure, public health projects and sports facilities and importing crude oil, timber and cotton.

The camp was in the same nearly trackless parkland where the girls were first spirited away after an attack on their school in northern Nigeria, highlighting Boko Haram’s ability to cross borders unimpeded.

An intelligence cell involving French, British and American agents is already operating out of Nigeria, but Boko Haram has seemingly continued to strike unimpeded.

Weary crews prepare for long wildfire season ESCONDIDO, Calif. (AP) — Firefighters scoured charred hillsides north of San Diego on Saturday to guard against a resurgence of flames that ripped through the region, while the last of tens of thousands of evacuees prepared to return home. For those battling a series of blazes for days, the relief was mixed with a sense of dread that drought-sapped vegetation, high temperatures and low humidity portend a long fire season ahead.

The California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection has responded to more than 1,500 fires this year, compared with about 800 during an average year.

“Normally, I don’t even put wildfire gear in my vehicle until the end of April. This year I never took it out,” said Kirk Kushen, battalion chief of the Kern


Margaret Suzanne Grissel Osborne

Funeral services are scheduled for 10:30 a.m. Monday, May 19 at Immanuel Lutheran Church for Margaret Suzanne Grissel Osborne, 80, of Roswell, who passed away at home surrounded by family on May 16, 2014 after a courageous 3 ½year battle with multiple myeloma. The Rev. Daniel Praeuner of Immanuel Lutheran Church will officiate. Interment will be at 1:00 p.m. at South Park Cemetery. Margaret was bor n on July 11, 1933, to George Hill Grissel and Susan Grace (Arnold) Grissel in Ypsilanti, Michigan. She grew up the eldest of 3 daughters on a 180-acre dairy farm in Wayne, Michigan, 17 miles west of Detroit. She was a junior champion in the Detroit Metropolitan Spelling Bee three years consecutively. She graduated from Wayne High School in 1951 after which she worked her first jobs at Detroit Edison and Burroughs Corporation. She married Edward A. Osborne on June 3, 1953, at First Congregational Church in Wayne. In her early married life, Margaret lived with her husband at Fort Hood and Fort Sam Houston, Texas, during Ed’s military service, and in Wayne, Michigan, while Ed attended pharmacy school at University of Michigan. In 1960, she moved to Roswell, New Mexico, with her husband, where they made their home for 54 years. Margaret was a homemaker and mother of 3 children. She was the bookkeeper for the family business, Nash Pharmacy, from 1971-1994. She enjoyed reading, playing the piano, singing in the Immanuel Lutheran Church choir, and meeting friends for tennis, quilting, book club, china painting, and Bible study. Two of her favorite morning activities were completing the daily crossword in the newspaper and taking walks. She loved gardening and enjoyed nature, especially birds. Her favorite flower was the fragrant deep purple petunia. She quilted many beautiful gifts for her family and friends. She was

County Fire Department said at a base camp in Escondido. “We never really completed the 2013 fire season. It’s been a continuation.”

At least 10 fires spanning 39 square miles have chewed a destructive path through San Diego County since Tuesday, destroying 11 houses, an 18-unit apartment complex and two businesses. A badly burned body was found in a transient camp, and one firefighter suffered heat exhaustion. The first blaze was caused by a spark from construction equipment, according to state officials, but it could take months to get to the bottom of the most damaging fires. Alberto Serrato, 57, pleaded not guilty Friday to an arson charge in connection with one of the smaller fires, but authorities say they don’t believe he started it, just

a woman of great faith who was an inspiration to her family and lived her life with joy and a spirit of gratitude. Margaret is survived by her husband, Ed; sisters Grace E. George of Grand Haven, MI, and Georgia G. McKee of Jackson, MI; son Ed Osborne II and wife Kim of Lovington, NM; daughter Carol Lucas and husband Steve of Austin, TX; daughter Susan Jakobsen and husband Tim of McKinney, TX; and five grandchildren: Eric Osbor ne, Amy Osborne, Jessie Lucas, Teo Jakobsen, and Soren Jakobsen; and numerous nieces and nephews. Pallbearers will be Ted Kunkel, Bob Kunkel, Tim Kunkel, Mike George, Varney Brandt and Bob Heider. Honorary pallbearers are Bud Kunkel, Lee George, Keith Palmateer, Lowell Irby, Charles Shannon, Ed Maier, Sam Thoreson and Lowell Davina. In lieu of flowers, memorials in Margaret’s name may be made to Immanuel Lutheran Church School or the American Cancer Society.

Thomas A. Tarter Jr. The TATler, final edition

Thomas A. Tarter, Jr. was born the first son of Thomas A. and Marie Tarter on the fifth day of April 1924 in Scarsdale, New York. He attended Immaculate Heart of Mary School and graduated from Eastchester High School in Westchester County, New York. Tom served in the United States Air Force during World War II in the Pacific Theatre. While stationed in Australia he met and married his first wife Ruth. Under the GI Bill, Tom studied at Hunter College and earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Geology. For about ten years, he practiced his profession of geology and geophysics in Texas, New Mexico and the Middle East. It was during this time that their son, Thomas A. Tarter III, was born. The family returned to the east coast where Tom was in business for many years. In 1988, he resettled in Roswell, New Mexico where he was very active in the community and enjoyed playing golf almost daily. Tom was a moder n equivalent of those people in history who stand out from the crowd, full of that confrontational energy not all have to ameliorate the wrongs perpetrated by people against other people, his mission being to lighten the load brought about by those in government and elsewhere in society against the people while loudly and fiercely protecting the rights and freedoms guaranteed under the United States Constitution. Tom knew and understood that it is a very rare society that is truly free and he was always willing to appear in public, totally alone, to face down those in power who were propagating some form of oppression and calling it protection. He had an impact on Roswell, in so many ways,

and truly worked hard to keep a bright light of truth shining on the dark caves of inequity. He did this by attending and monitoring countless county commission, school board, city council and many committee meetings, and then publishing his one-man newsletter, The TATler. The TATler, with the banner “All the News that causes a fit”, was named after and emulated a British literary and society tabloid newspaper and included the initials of his name, was his answer in recognition of the fact that authoritarianism and other forms of oppression begins with the destruction of the truth. He wrote under the pens names Tahm A. T rephian, Jr., Assistant Editor, and Sue LeLit, Society Editor, about policies and actions which insulted his strong beliefs of right and wrong to inform those in his community-a modern day village crier -to make them think and be aware. Tom Tarter performed a valuable service for Roswell and Chaves County. Many disagreed with him, but they knew who he was and eagerly perused every issue of The TATler, thus creating discussions around community issues that brought out a diversity of opinions while focusing on change and social good. He was a unique man in Roswell, the likes of which we may never see again. On the eighth day of May 2014 Tom passed peacefully in his home after a brief bout with cancer and possibly slow treatment by the VA. He is survived by his son, Tom III, a retired Harvard educated doctor who resides in Bloomington, Indiana, his sister, Marion Stein, of Westchester, a niece and two nephews and his for mer wife, Ruth S. Tarter. Tom was predeceased by a younger brother, Paul Tarter and his first wife, Ruth A. Tarter. Memorial services are not planned pursuant to Tom wishes. Memorial contributions may be considered to the local Chaves County Cancer Fund - Walk for Hope, Veterans Transportation of Southeastern New Mexico, and First Tee of the Pecos Valley or a charity of choice.

Goddard falls in title game Days to kickoff

Sunday, May 18, 2014

Roswell Daily Record


ALBUQUERQUE — Vince Lombardi and Michael Jordan are both famous for using some variation of the phrase, “I never lost a game, I just ran out of time.” In the case of the Goddard baseball team, it might be more apropos to say they didn’t lose, they just ran out of innings. That’s exactly what happened on Saturday afternoon at Isotopes Park in the Class 4A state championship. Goddard staged a furious lateinning rally in the sixth and seventh, but it wasn’t enough in a 76 loss to Piedra Vista. “The last two innings, we struck the ball well,” Rocket coach Alan Edmonson said after the loss, which was just the 10th by the Rockets over the past two seasons. “We had chances early on too where we hit balls right at guys. They just didn’t fall our way. “The ball didn’t bounce our way. Tough loss.” The ball did bounce Piedra Vista’s way in the early going. Goddard scored first to go up 1-0 on Panther error, one of four PV would make in the game. PV answered, though, scoring a run of its own in the bottom of the first to tie the game. The second inning would prove to be the difference. Goddard took the lead in the top half of the inning when Ricky Roybal drove home Adam Brown. Then, in the bottom half, Piedra Vista took the lead for good. With the bases loaded, Phillip Archuleta singled home a pair to make it 3-2. Matt Martin then drove one home and Zach Ahlgrim drove home another, pushing Piedra Vista’s advantage to 5-2.


Cody French was pulled after Archuleta’s single in favor of Adam Brown. The Panthers tacked on two more in the fourth to set the stage for the Rocket rally over the final two innings. In the sixth, Taryn Nunez drove home Brown and Cal Villareal, who had both walked, with an RBI double to finally light the fuse for the Rockets. In the seventh, Josh Wagner opened the inning with a walk and scored when French drove a triple to deep right to make it 7-5.

CHROMETASTIC BAL TIMORE (AP) — It gets even harder from here on out for California Chrome. He won easily in his home state of California, he dazzled in the Kentucky Derby and he dug deep to win the Preakness on Saturday. Now comes the toughest test of all, the Belmont Stakes in three weeks. The chestnut colt with four white feet will attempt to sweep the Kentucky Derby, Preakness and Belmont, something that hasn’t been done since Affirmed in 1978. Since then, 12 horses have won the first two legs and failed to complete the sweep in the 1 ½-mile Belmont; the last was I’ll Have Another, who was scratched on the eve of the Belmont two years ago. “You have to have a very good horse to win these three races,” said Art Sherman, the winning 77-year-old trainer. “I’m hoping I’ve got one right now.” Maybe the horse with the modest pedigree and average Joe owners is the one. California Chrome defeated Ride On Curlin by 1 ½ lengths in the Preakness, covering 1

3/16 miles in 1:54.84 on a sunny and cool day at Pimlico. He’s now won six straight races. The streak started with four in a row in California by a combined 24 ¼ lengths. Then California Chrome coasted home in the Derby by 1 ¾ lengths after opening up a big lead in the stretch. The margin dwindled in the Preakness as he fought off multiple challengers. California Chrome’s co-owner Steve Coburn shed tears after his colt crossed the finish line, dabbing them away with a blueand-white bandanna. “I don’t mean to be bold or cocky or arrogant,” Coburn said. “I saw this baby when he was a day old, I told my wife, ‘Carolyn, this horse is going to do something big. I don’t know what it is, but we’re going to stay in the game to make sure this colt gets to be the best that he can be.’” Quite a statement from a guy with a one-horse stable. Cobur n and partner Perry Martin bred an $8,000 mare to a $2,500 stallion to produce Cali-

It’s the third playoff in the championship since the tournament began in 1955, and the first since 1970. 2004 — Randy Johnson becomes the oldest pitcher in major league history to throw a perfect game, retiring all 27 hitters to lead the Arizona Diamondbacks over the Atlanta Braves 2-0.

2008 — Rafael Nadal beats defending champion Roger Federer 7-5, 6-7 (3), 6-3 to win the Hamburg Masters, adding the only major clay-court title missing from his impressive collection. 2008 — Boston’s Paul Pierce and Cleveland’s LeBron James combine for 86 points in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference semifinals. James outscores Pierce 45-41 in the shootout, but Boston advances with a 97-92 win.

CHUCKAS SPEAKS OUT: Tom Chuckas, president and CEO of the Maryland Jockey Club, wants to see a change in the scheduling of the Triple Crown races. The current schedule calls for a twoweek gap between the Kentucky Derby and Preakness, followed by a three-week break before the Belmont. Chuckas wants to see the Derby held on the first Saturday in May, the Preakness on the first Saturday of June and the Belmont on the first Saturday of July. “I’m not anti-tradition, but the game’s changed,” Chuckas said. “The breeding’s changed and more importantly, the trainers’ philosophy has changed.” Only three horses from the Derby came to Pimlico for the Preakness and only 10 of a maximum 14 entrants competed on Saturday. “We haven’t had any conversations with Churchill (Downs), we haven’t had any conversations with Belmont. I don’t know what their position is,” he said. “But we intend to at some point after the Triple Crown season take a hard look at it. You’re going to have mixed opinions. The traditionalist will say no. But I don’t want to go the way of the dinosaur and go extinct.”

FEMALE TROUBLE: This was the first Preakness with a filly at the starting gate, a female jockey and a female trainer. None of them fared well. Ria Antonia finished last in the 10-horse field. Rosie Napravnik, who rode Bayern, came in second-to-last. And Kid Cruz, who was saddled by trainer Linda Rice, took eighth.


ATTENDANCE RECORD: Saturday’s attendance of 123,469 set a Preakness record, eclipsing the previous mark of 121,309 set in 2012. The card’s overall handle, $83,786,363, was the sixth largest in history, and the

Preakness in hand, Sherman seeks ‘ultimate’ thrill

BALTIMORE (AP) — Art Sherman thought nothing could be better than winning the Kentucky Derby. Then came the Preakness, when California Chrome proved just how good a horse he can be when pressed for the lead. And now, Sherman needs only a victory at the Belmont on June 7 to achieve every trainer’s dream: winning the Triple Crown. “It would be the ultimate in my career,” the 77-year-old said Saturday evening. “I’ve been in the game 60 years,” Sherman said. “Triple Crown winner? If you would have said that to me at the beginning of the year, I would have said, ‘What, are you crazy?’ And now that I’m getting closer, I’m elated.” Sherman operated in relative obscurity before the Derby. Now the diminutive trainer stands out in a crowd. “I’m kind of getting used to it,” he said. “After I won the Kentucky Derby, I said, ‘Wow, all of a sudden I feel like Willie Nelson,’ the old rock star coming through the airport.” Still, it’s been a whirlwind. “Sometimes I need to take my little siesta for about an hour,” he said. “I just call it charging my battery a little bit.”

SECOND TO ONE: Unsatisfied with the rides of some of Ride On Curlin’s former jockeys, trainer Billy Gowan said he simply wanted his colt to get a fighting chance in the Preakness. Jockey Jose Rosario gave him just that, recovering from a slow start to make his move down the stretch before finishing second, 1½ lengths behind California Chrome. “I thought it was awesome,” Gowan said. “California Chrome ran a great race and he’s a great horse. My horse ran a great race. He was in a good spot down the back. Joel said he got shut off for a second, but he came running in the stretch and gave me a heck of a thrill.” It was a vast improvement from Ride On Curlin’s 11th-place finish in the Kentucky Derby. Gowan said he plans to send the horse to the Belmont, provided the colt comes out of this race in good shape. CHURCHILL DOWNS A DOWNER: Steve Coburn, co-owner of California Chrome, lashed out at Churchill Downs after the Preakness. “Churchill Downs needs to call Maryland to get a lesson in hospitality,” Coburn said. “These people right here, they’ve treated us like royalty.” Co-owner Perry Martin didn’t make the trip to Pimlico, and Coburn was asked why. “The hospitality we received at Churchill Downs wasn’t very good, and Perry Martin, he decided that he and his family were going to watch the race some place within the world.”

Spencer’s return up in air; Cowboys aren’t waiting

IRVING, Texas (AP) — Dallas defensive end Anthony Spencer stops in a locker room filled with rookies, the eight-year veteran’s beard dripping with sweat after the latest workout in his attempt to come back from microfracture surgery on his left knee. Spencer feels like a first-year guy again, except that he isn’t. He is a 30-year-old player without a timetable for a return, not even sure if he will play again. “The injury, it’s really uncommon,” said Spencer, who missed all but one game and had two knee surgeries in two months in 2013. “You rarely see guys coming back from it. I’m just on my body schedule. Wherever my body is, that’s where I am.” The Cowboys decided to bring back Spencer on a third straight one-year deal at a fraction of what he cost with the franchise tag in consecutive seasons. If he makes it all the way back and hits all the incentives, he will earn $3.5 million — a third of his salary a year ago. Dallas isn’t waiting for him, either. The Cowboys signed three other free agents on the defensive line and drafted three more a week ago. Their answer to the release of franchise sacks leader DeMarcus Ware was surrendering a third-round draft pick to move up in the second round and get Boise State’s DeMarcus Lawrence, who went through his first rookie practice Saturday after missing the first day to attend the birth of his son. If Spencer plays two years after getting a career-high 11 sacks and finishing just half a sack behind Ware, it will be a bonus, not a necessity. “I don’t know that you can count on any injured player to come back,” coach Jason Garrett said. “You’ve got to make sure that you have safety nets and reinforcements. We certainly did that across our defensive line.” Spencer missed the offseason and training camp last year because of knee trouble before working his way back and playing in Week 2 at Kansas City. But the pain wouldn’t go away. He was on crutches for about four months after microfracture surgery, which repairs cartilage that cushions bones in the knee and doesn’t offer any guarantees that pro athletes can regain the form they had before the procedure. Now he is finally getting in cardiovascular work and lifting weights, and will soon do some light work on the field. But don’t ask if he’ll get back for any of training camp. Or a preseason game. Or any other game. “I’ve gotten to where I am by listening to my body and rehabbing and doing things at the pace of my body,” Spencer said. “That’s one of the biggest things with this surgery I’ve read is just being patient. I’m just not pushing it anywhere past that.” If he does get back, Spencer will be the only familiar face on a revamped front four. Ware signed with Denver a day after the Cowboys released him, and 2013 sacks leader Jason Hatcher went to Washington. Jay Ratliff didn’t play a down for the Cowboys last year before his midseason release.



The New Mexico Military Institute volleyball camp will be held May 27-30 at the Institute. The three-day skills camp will be held May 27-29. The morning session is from 9 a.m. to noon and is for players entering second through seventh grades. The afternoon session is from 1-4 p.m. and is open to players entering eighth through 12th grade. The cost for skills camp is $40 per camper. Specialty camps will be held on May 30. The morning session will feature instruction on passing, serving, setting and spiking. It runs from 9 a.m. to noon. The afternoon session is split into three separate groups: Defensive specialist/libero training, advanced setting or middle/outside hitting training. It runs from 1-4 p.m. The cost is $20 for each of the specialty trainings. For more information, call 6248270 or 624-8643.

Roswell Daily Record “That’s probably the biggest change of it all,” Spencer said. “I’ve been here six, seven years now and seen so many guys come and go. This is the way things work.” Garrett isn’t counting on Spencer. But he’s not counting him out, either. “There have been players who have come back from an injury like Spence’s,” the coach said. “And when you have Spence’s character, his makeup, the kind of person he is, you certainly want to give him every chance.”

Broncos cautious with second-round pick

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — With NFL teams poring over his college film, Cody Latimer went out for a run one cold day in January and felt a pop in his left foot. An X-ray revealed a broken fifth metatarsal, which required surgery. That meant he couldn’t do anything but the bench press at the NFL scouting combine in February. But it didn’t keep him from running a 4.39 in the 40-yard dash at Indiana’s pro day in March. Nor did it prevent the Denver Broncos from selecting him in the second round of the NFL draft earlier this month. It is, however, keeping the Broncos from turning the wide receiver loose on the football field at their rookie minicamp this weekend. “We’re going to be smart with his foot,” coach John Fox said. The Broncos aren’t taking any risks on their big wide receiver whom they have big plans for this season. Latimer is just in the early stages of learning the Broncos’ complex offense and doing mental repetitions while running halfspeed along the sideline while his fellow rookie receivers such as Michigan State’s Bennie Fowler and Fresno State’s Isiah Burse, two undrafted free agents who were with him at the NFL combine in Indianapolis, run routes full-speed on the field. “I’m eager, but you know that’s good. I get to get mental reps and learn from everyone else, seeing what everybody else is doing and how to get coached up from their mistakes — and hoping that when I come out here and I’m able to run I don’t make those mistakes,” Latimer said Saturday. “So I’m doing a lot of learning and doing a lot of mental reps, so it’s good for me.” Asked whereabouts he is in the healing process, Latimer said, “It’s healing. (We have) great trainers here. They are doing a good job of supporting me and making sure I’m doing the right things so I’m healthy for (training camp). Then, the Broncos will get to see firsthand the unusual mix of size, speed and strength to go with uncanny blocking skills and superb hands that made general manager John Elway move up in a trade with San Francisco to take the 6-foot-2, 215pound receiver in the second round. Offensive coordinator Adam Gase said he loved what he saw in Latimer when he watched his college film. “Obviously a big guy. His height-weightspeed was very impressive, and then the way that he plays the game is a little different than probably a lot of receivers out there, especially in the NFL,” Gase said. “He’s a physical specimen, and when he plays, he plays his size. To see him catch the ball as well as he does and then his blocking is unbelievable. I don’t think I’ve really seen a college guy go after it the way he has, and hopefully he just carries that over to this level.” Latimer won’t just be asked to free up fellow pass-catchers on pick plays the way Eric Decker used to, though. Latimer grew up on the hardwood and brings basketball skills to the gridiron, which the Broncos can sorely use close to the goal line. Gase said he relishes the thought of putting Latimer opposite Demaryius Thomas or Emmanuel Sanders near the goal line to give Peyton Manning another option and defensive coordinators even more headaches. “I think I saw him — 50-50 balls, he came down with it every time,” Gase said. “That’s a dimension that we’re always looking to improve on, especially in the low-red area. That was probably one part of our red-area game we struggled on, where we probably kicked too many field goals inside the 5 (yard line).”

Oosthuizen, Todd share Nelson lead after 3 rounds

IRVING, Texas (AP) — Louis Oosthuizen is still looking for a remedy for his recurring back issues. A victory at the Byron Nelson Championship would sure make him feel much better. “The last year and a half was really frustrating,” he said. Oosthuizen birdied four of the last five holes for a 6-under 64 on Saturday and a share of the third-round lead with Brendon Todd. The 2010 British Open champion had the low round of the day after recovering from bogeys on two of the first four holes. “I made a nice birdie on 5, and just really made some good putts,” Oosthuizen said. “Every opportunity I had for birdie I actually made. My eye was good today, and I hit a lot of them really close.” Todd who made 12 consecutive pars before holing a 4-foot birdie at No. 18 for a 68 to match Oosthuizen at 10-under 200. On the morning of the Nelson’s final round last year, Oosthuizen withdrew because of a neck issue. He missed extended time last season, and is still bothered by

the back even though he won at home in South Africa in January. Mike Weir, James Hahn and Gary Woodland were a stroke back. “That’s what I’ve been working toward the last few years, to get myself back here in this position, and looking forward to the challenge,” said Weir, the 44-year-old left-hander. Weir, the 2003 Masters champion who hasn’t a top-25 finish since 2010 when the Canadian had an elbow injury, shot 67 while missing 4-foot putts on Nos. 15 and 16. Hahn’s 65 included five birdies in a row on the back nine, and Woodland shot 66 with a double bogey at No. 7. Morgan Hoffmann twice fell out of the lead after hitting drives left into the water and making double bogey, at Nos. 11 and 18. He finished with a 68 and was tied for sixth at 8 under with three-time major champion Padraig Harrington, Marc Leishman and Graham DeLaet. Todd’s only bogey was at the 420-yard fourth hole, when his approach went over the green and he two-putted from 8½ feet. But that was sandwiched by long birdies. After beginning the day with a two-stroke lead, Todd had to make a 4-foot birdie on No. 18 to regain a share of the lead. Scott Scheffler, a 17-year-old top junior from Dallas playing on a sponsor exemption, made a hole-in-one using a 5-iron on the 218-yard second hole. He is the fourth amateur since 1983 with an ace in a PGA Tour event. That was part of his 69 that also included five bogeys and four birdies to get to 2 under for the tournament. Dallas native Jordan Spieth, now 20 and ranked eighth in the world, made the Nelson cut as an amateur at ages 16 and 17. Spieth shot 73 on Saturday and was even par overall.

Mitch Weathers then drove home French with a sacrifice fly to center to bring the Rockets within one. The Panthers quickly killed the rally, though. Brown hit a slow roller to the pitcher for the second out and Villareal flied out to center for the gameclinching out. French took the loss, allowing five runs on four hits in one-plus innings of work. “He had a rough time up there. His secondary stuff, for some reason, wasn’t working for him today. His breaking balls, changeups,” Edmonson said about French’s performance. “If those aren’t working, it’s tough to beat anybody. But, he’s given us all he could. He came up big in the seventh inning with a huge triple. He’s battled and fought for us all year.” Brown gave up two runs on five hits in 2 1⁄3 innings. Ricky Roybal finished things of f, going per fect


over the final 2 2⁄3 innings. Wyatt Weaver was credited with the victory for Piedra Vista. He allowed two runs on four hits before being pulled after five. The loss finished off a 26-5 campaign for Goddard. “It’s tough. Losing any kind of game is tough, whether it’s the first game of the year or the last game of the year,” Edmonson said. “They’re all heartbreakers. Obviously this one means a lot more being the last game of the season. “We gave ourselves chances to win, things didn’t go our way today.” It was the first championship game appearance for the Rockets since 1992, when they won the 3A title with a 13-1 triumph over Bloomfield for a second straight championship. “I’m incredibly satisfied with this season,” added Edmonson. “The goal is to win a state championship, but these kids gave me, the school, the program, everything they had every day. “They did well for themselves, well for the school and well for the city of


Roswell.” It was also Edmonson’s first appearance as a head coach in the championship game, and he said afterward that this was a special group to him. “I love every one of those kids sitting over there. I’m one of those coaches where these guys mean a lot to me. I’ve always told these kids that I’d never treat them any differently than I would treat my own son,” he said. “It’s tough to see them hurting. “For the seniors, it’s a tough way to go out. For the youngsters, maybe it gives them a little something to work for and a little taste of it knowing that maybe one day they’ll get back here and get the job done.” He also said he was proud of his team. “I’m proud of these kids. I’ve probably never been more proud of a group of kids ever. I don’t think anybody would have pegged these guys to be playing in this game at the beginning of the year. They did a fantastic job for us all season. I’m incredibly proud of these guys.”

fornia Chrome. Based on the colt’s humble breeding, he probably shouldn’t be on the verge of making history. His mother, named Love the Chase, won just one race. The owners were long shots to get this far, too. Cobur n and Martin named their operation DAP Racing, which stands for Dumb Ass Partners. Their silks include an image of a donkey. Coburn and Perry who live on each side of the California-Nevada border get up early for their jobs — Cobur n working as a press operator and Martin running a lab that tests high-reliability equipment. “We just hope that this horse is letting America know that the little guy can win,” Coburn said. Sent of f as the overwhelming 1-2 favorite by a record crowd of 123,469, California Chrome bounced out of the gate running, with jockey Victor Espinoza moving the colt into the clear. Pablo Del Monte, a 34-1 shot, charged to the lead and was soon joined by filly Ria Antonia. Espinoza tucked California Chrome into third, an ideal spot behind the leaders. They stayed there until making their move approaching the final turn. “I had to move early today,” Espinoza said. “I had to start moving at the half-mile pole, which is tough for a horse to start moving early and keep going all the way to the end. Califor nia Chrome proved he can move.” California Chrome went for the lead, catching Pablo Del Monte while Social Inclusion joined the chase. Pablo Del Monte soon dropped back along the rail, and California Chrome sprinted away from Social Inclusion at the top of the stretch. But there was one more challenge to come. Ride On Curlin, next-tolast in the 10-horse field, ranged up and briefly appeared ready to overtake California Chrome. Once again showing his class, California Chrome denied the threat. “It’s an awesome feeling,” Espinoza said. “Today it was just a crazy race. I got more tired mentally than physically. I see another horse go to the front. I was going to sit second. ... I sit back, as soon as the other horse got clear of me, it worked out perfect.” California Chrome paid $3, $3 and $2.40. Ride On Curlin returned $5.60 and $3.80, while Social Inclusion was another 6 ½ lengths back in third and paid $3.40 as the 5-1 second choice. General a Rod was fourth, followed by Ring

Weekend, Pablo Del Monte, Dynamic Impact, Kid Cruz, Bayern and Ria Antonia. Espinoza will get another crack at trying to complete the T riple Crown, after missing with War Emblem in 2002. He finished eighth in the Belmont that year. “You have to be a super horse to win,” the jockey said. “Hopefully, California Chrome comes back good, and he’s the one that hopefully can do it.”

Bob Baffert trained War Emblem, one of his three Triple tries that ended in failure. He missed with Silver Char m in 1997 and again the following year with Real Quiet, who lost the Belmont by a nose. “Califor nia Chrome is something. He’s a cool customer,” Baffert said after the race. “He does everything right. He’s fast enough to stay out of trouble.”

Pillar, Reyes lead Jays past Rangers

B4 Sunday, May 18, 2014


ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Eighth-inning doubles by Kevin Pillar and Jose Reyes produced the go-ahead run as the Toronto Blue Jays beat the T exas Rangers 4-2 on Saturday night. Right-hander Steve Delabar (3-0) retired four straight, including striking out the side in the eighth, to earn the victory. The Blue Jays added an unearned run in the ninth. T oronto has won three straight while Texas has lost four in a row. Toronto took a 1-0 lead on a first-inning home run by Jose Bautista that was pulled down the left-field line with two outs. Michael Choice's third-inning RBI single to left tied the score and ended T exas' scoreless streak at 15 innings. The Blue Jays broke a 1-1 tie in the seventh when Anthony Gose led off by legging out a double to left, stole third and scored on Melky Cabrera's chopper to third. Texas' Luis Sardinas greeted left-hander reliever Aaron Loop in the seventh with a single to left to tie the score 2-2. The save by right-hander Casey Janssen was his third of the season and 19th straight in save situations going back to last year. Jays starter Mark Buehrle, was denied his major league-

The four-game losing streak equals the Rangers' season high. Texas starter Robbie Ross lasted 4 1-3 innings. In the Rangers' last 18 games, they have gotten three quality starts — all from Yu Darvish. Buehrle's overall ERA rose to

2.11 and his road ERA went up to 1.00. Bautista's homer was his 179th with Toronto, tying him with Jesse Bar field for fifth place in club history. Rangers first baseman Prince Fielder sat out with a herniated disk in his neck, ending his

consecutive games streak at 547. Fielder received a nerveroot injection on Saturday morning to alleviate pain that he has felt since last season and, according to Texas general manager Jon Daniels, caused weakness in his left arm. The Rangers hope Fielder can return to the lineup on Tuesday and won't have to become their 17th move to the disabled list this season. One of the 13 Rangers currently on the disabled list, lefthander Martin Perez, confirmed before the game that he will undergo Tommy John surgery on Monday. And T exas right-handed reliever Alexi Ogando left the game in the seventh inning with a bruised pitching palm trying to field a liner by Brett Lawrie.

Smith, Quentin homer in Padres’ 8-5 win

DENVER (AP) — Seth Smith homered against his former team early, Carlos Quentin added a two-run, pinch-hit home run, and the San Diego Padres hung on to beat the Colorado Rockies 8-5 Saturday night. San Diego staked Robbie Erlin (3-4) to a 6-1 lead by roughing up previously unbeaten Jordan Lyles (51), who walked a career high six batters in a season-low 3 1-3 inning outing. The Rockies got an early home run from Troy Tulowitzki and chipped away at the Padres' lead, pulling to within a run on Carlos Gonzalez's two-run double in the sixth inning. Quentin rebuilt the cushion in the seventh. Activated this week after spending the first six weeks of the season on the disabled list because of a left knee bone contusion, Quentin batted for reliever Nick Vincent and followed Yasmani Grandal's two-out single with a drive of f reliever Chris Martin that sailed into the left field bleachers for his first home run of the season. Erlin, who entered hitless in 11 at-bats over his eight previous games, singled twice, including an RBI single in the third inning that capped three consecutive two-run innings by the Padres. On the mound, Erlin allowed four runs on nine hits. He struck out two and walked none and benefited from a defense that turned five double plays, including four in the first five innings. Huston Street, also a former Rockie, got three outs for his 13th save in as many opportunities. Lyles, who saw his ERA increase to 3.50 from 2.66, had control problems from the outset. He issued firstinning walks to Everth Cabrera and Smith before giving up a two-two-run double to Yonder Alonso. Tulowitzki, who had three hits, answered in the bottom of the first with his NL-leading 12th homer of the season. But Smith, who played for the Rockies from 200711, made it 4-1 San Diego in the second. One out after Chris Denor fia doubled, Smith drove a 1-1 offering from Lyles over the center field fence for his fourth home run of the season. The Rockies pulled to 6-3 on Gonzalez's sacrifice fly in the fourth and Jordan Pacheco's RBI single in the

Salas leads going to Sunday

WILLIAMSBURG, Va. (AP) — Lizette Salas moved into position for her first LPGA Tour victory, playing 25 holes Saturday in 6-under par to take a three-stroke lead in the Kingsmill Championship. The 24-year -old former Southern California player shot a 3-under 68 in the completion of the raindelayed second round and birdied three of the last five holes in the afternoon for a season-best 65. “I took a dif ferent approach this week,” Salas said. “I only played the proam. I’ve seen the course several times. It’s my third year here. I didn’t want to think too much about the golf course and just hit my targets. Last week, I had a good practice session at home, so I was feeling good coming in.” She had a 13-under 200 total on Kingsmill Resort’s River Course. South Korea’s Hee Young Park, the second-round leader, was second. She bogeyed No. 18 for a 69. “Today, a little bit miss driver off the fairway, so it’s bit tough to make it close or make birdie chance,” Park said. “Tomorrow, a little more focus on the accuracy rather than distance.” Second-ranked Stacy Lewis and No. 3 Lydia Ko, both trying to take the top spot in the world from Inbee Park, were five strokes back along with Katherine Kirk. Lewis shot 70, Ko 67, and Kirk 68.

Coming off a victory two weeks ago in the North Texas LPGA Shootout, Lewis would jump to No. 1 with a victory or a solo second-place finish, as long as Ko doesn’t win. Ko needs a victory to move to No. 1. Inbee Park is skipping the tournament. “Overall, I’m really happy,” Ko said. “I mean, I guess improving every day is a really good sign.” She played 24 holes Saturday. “I started on 13 this

morning,” Ko said. “Luckily, I birdied that and birdied the next hole. After that, I just kind of went back to my hotel and had some rest.” Kraft Nabisco winner Lexi Thompson was 7 under along with Yani Tseng and Phatlum. Por nanong Thompson shot 70, Tseng 68 and Phatlum 66. “I have good confidence with my putter and short game today,” Phatlum said. “Just try to be relax tomorrow and try my best.”

Q&A: Baruchel says he lucked out with ‘Dragon’ CANNES, France (AP) — Cannes is awash in glamorous celebrities who peacock on the festival’s red carpet and confidently parade through its multitudes. Jay Baruchel is not one of them. He may be the most uncomfortable person in Cannes. Baruchel readily acknowledges it’s “a little intense” for his tastes, which are not exactly red-carpet ready: “I don’t like wearing suits or nothin’,” he says. The 32-year -old Canadian actor was in Cannes for the premiere to “How to T rain Your Dragon 2,” for which (like the Oscar-nominated 2010 original), he voices the main character, Hiccup, the young Viking who befriends the dragons his tribe has long slayed. Baruchel, who broke out in the Judd Apatow TV series “Undeclared,” is best known for his comedies, including “Knocked Up” and last summer’s “This Is the End.” The anti-Hollywood version of himself he played in that film has some truth to it. Baruchel, who speaks with a Quebecois accent, lives in his native Montreal blocks from his family. “I wish I wasn’t known for hating Los Angeles because I spend a good deal of time there,” he says.

Actor Jay Baruchel poses for photographers during a photo call for How to Train Your Dragon 2 at the 67th international film festival, Cannes, southern France, Friday. AP: I imagine that when you, your co-stars and a large model of the dragon from the film were chaotically mobbed on the Croisette in a promotional stunt Thursday, you wondered how this could be your life. Baruchel: The entire time.

Exactly — “If my friends could see me now” type of thing. And what my life was two days ago: I look like a dirt bag more often than not. I’m in my pajama pants 12 hours a day. The biggest thing I had to do two days ago was clean the litter boxes. And here I am on the

Croisette and there’s people getting elbowed in the head. AP: You’ve now spent some seven years on “Dragon,” with a third film planned. What’s that journey been like? Baruchel: You can spend your entire career and never be part of something that’s half as an

important as “How to Train Your Dragon.” We all knew it was a good movie, but I don’t know if any of us expected to it be a global phenomenon. There’re people that adore this movie in the four corners of the worlds. That’s insane. I feel like I lucked out. This is my “Star Wars.” AP: It took even longer for “This Is the End,” which began as a short you and Seth Rogen made years ago. Baruchel: I really didn’t think we’d pull it off. It could have gone so wrong in so many ways. The whole time I was like, “This could be like a two-hour MTV Movie Awards sketch” — all of us playing ourselves, talking about movies. AP: The hockey comedy you co-wrote, “Goon,” has a deserved cult following. Baruchel: In the States, it’s a cult life. In Canada, it was a bona fide, massive hit. We were number one in Canada when we opened, and English-Canadian movies are never number one. ... Our American distributors (Magnolia Pictures) dropped the ball a bit, unfortunately. Their model is all about VOD, which is fine, but the movie deserved a better life. But it’s achieved one. Hopefully if we get to make number two — I was writing it in my room yesterday — we’ll get to do it properly in the States.

Fans honor Dennis Hopper at ‘Easy Rider’ festival

TAOS (AP) — Motorcyclists and movie fanatics from as far away as Canada made the pilgrimage to norther n New Mexico to celebrate Dennis Hopper and his iconic counterculture film “Easy Rider.” Several dozen motorcycles gathered Saturday in the dusty, adobe encircled plaza in the community of Ranchos de Taos, 4 miles south of Taos, to kick off what town officials hope will be an annual event — Dennis Hopper Day — with a rally and ride through some of the places made famous in the film. Motorcyclists pulled out of the plaza just before 1 p.m. MDT. Led by a police escort, they started their easy ride on the two-lane road heading out of Taos, a diverse town known for skiing, art and Hispanic and Native American culture. Not unlike scenes in the movie, snow-capped mountains served as a classic backdrop for much of the ride. Saturday would have been the late actor and director’s 78th birthday. Hopper lived in Taos for years and is buried here. Town Manager Rick Bellis says the day is aimed at recognizing Hopper’s contributions as a resident, a filmmaker, a supporter of the arts and for simply being a “colorful member” of the community. “His image really represents the spirit of Taos,”

Bellis said. “He was independent, slightly eccentric but incredibly talented. He sort of became a symbol for a whole new generation.” Hopper first came to New Mexico in the late 1960s to scout locations for “Easy Rider.” Shot on a shoestring budget, the independent film summed up the hopes and anxieties of the ‘60s, romanticized the open road and ended up revolutionizing Hollywood by forcing the studio gates to open to a new generation of film school graduates. “Nothing like this had ever been done before. It was a phenomenon,” said John Hellmann, an English professor and a member of the film studies program at Ohio State University. The appeal of rebellion, motorcycles and the open road have sustained the popularity of “Easy Rider” over four decades, and town officials are hopeful the film and the legend of Hopper will continue to draw people to Taos. This marks the first year of the rally and ride, but organizers have plans to add more music and film venues in the coming years. Bellis said Hopper was able to get some of the area’s traditional Hispanic and Native American families to open up to outsiders when he first arrived in the ‘60s. In fact, he was the only person to get permission to film at Taos Pueblo,

an American Indian community dating to the late 13th and early 14th centuries that’s recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage site.

“He walked across the multicultural borders here. I think that really started with him and the movie and has continued,” Bellis said. “In the last few years,

we have really become that kind of community that he saw, that there was no difference between our ethnicities and who, when and where we came from.”

“We all came here for the same reason, that awe of nature and that spirit of the last of the wild West, that independence,” he said.

35-foot-tall sugar sculpture honors black workers

NEW YORK (AP) — A 35-foot-tall sphinxlike sculpture made of sugar is on display at an old New York City factory as a tribute to black workers. Artist Kara Walker’s monumental installation occupies much of the cavernous interior of the former Domino Sugar Refinery in the Williamsburg section of Brooklyn. Four tons of sugar was used to create the female figure. There are several smaller sculptures of young boys covered in molasses with fruit baskets holding unrefined sugar. A sweet aroma still fills the air in the shuttered factory. The artist is known for exploring issues of race, discrimination, sexual exploitation and power in her work. The full title of the work is “A Subtlety or the Marvelous Sugar Baby an Homage to the unpaid and overworked Artisans who have refined our Sweet tastes from the cane fields to the Kitchens of the New World on the Occasion of the demolition of the Domino Sugar Refining Plant.” The head of the large sculpture wears a kerchief and has slightly exaggerated African features. Her breasts are exposed and her fists are thrust out. Walker has described the pose as both submissive and domineering. She said in an interview with Complex Magazine that she thought of the sphinx as “this woman-like creature or guardian of the city, the keeper of the riddle, the devourer of heroes.”

Aspiring rapper fatally shot in Las Vegas suite

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Police were searching for leads Saturday in the shooting death of an aspiring rapper in a posh suite at a Las Vegas resort. Police say Evan Plunkett, who performed under the name “Hollywood Will,” was shot in the chest after a fight erupted between him and three other men during a party in the Palms Casino Resort’s Fantasy Tower. Others involved in the Thursday night fight fled the suite before police arrived, and no arrests have been made, investigators said. About 40 to 50 people attended the party.

A music video was being filmed in the suite when an argument broke out between Plunkett, 25, and the other men, according to friends. “There was an altercation. He was trying to get everybody to stop fighting. Apparently, he took a shot to the chest,” Barbara Combs, a neighbor and friend of Plunkett’s mother, told KVVU-TV. He was taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead. Plunkett’s brother suffered multiple broken bones after trying to pull Evan Plunkett out of the fight, Combs said.

Hayek stands out with dress, message

CANNES, France (AP) — With a fuchsia strapless dress that accentuated her voluptuous figure, Salma Hayek was already guaranteed to turn heads on the Cannes red carpet. So she used the opportunity to draw attention to a crisis — the kidnapping of more than 200 Nigerian girls. The Oscar-nominated actress carried a sign with the hashtag “Bring Back Our Girls” as she walked in front of a throng of cameras to a preview of her animated film “The Prophet” on Saturday. The “Bring Back Our Girls” slogan has been used on social media. Notable figures including U.S. first lady Michelle Obama have posed with the message to urge the return of the girls, taken hostage by the Islamic extremist group Boko Haram a month ago. Hayek is not the only Cannes participant to use the media to draw attention to a topical event. On Friday, the cast of the Turkish film “Winter’s Sleep” held up signs with the hashtag Soma. Soma is the Turkish city where 301 people were killed in an explosion and fire in a coal mine, the country’s worst mining accident.

The Palms is home to some of the most extravagant party suites in Las Vegas, including a 9,000-square-foot Sky Villa that rents for $40,000 a night and a Hardwood Suite that features a private basketball court. Randi Flippin, a friend of the victim, said she’s surprised the suspects were still at large. “It just amazes me that nobody knows anything,” she told the Las Vegas Sun. “There is no suspect at all. There were only 50 people in the room and nobody knows anything? That’s insane to me.”

Plunkett pursued his love of rap music after returning to Las Vegas from a stint as an aviation mechanic for the Marines, according to friends. During his first week of boot camp, his father was killed in a traffic accident and his best friend was shot to death. He was a 2007 graduate of Basic High School in Henderson, a Las Vegas suburb. “Everybody loved Evan. He was such a good-hearted person, and he was always the person to try and get everybody to do the right thing,” Combs said.

‘Girls Gone Wild’ founder booked on assault charge

LOS ANGELES (AP) — “Girls Gone Wild” creator Joe Francis has been arrested on suspicion of assault after getting into a scuffle, the Los Angeles Times reports. Los Angeles police Sgt. John Juarez told the Times that the 41-year-old was arrested Friday evening at an office building on Wilshire Boulevard after some “pushing and shoving.” Francis filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy last year after years of legal troubles and was issued a “stay away” order by a bankruptcy judge. Juarez told the newspaper police were investigating whether Francis’ presence at the building violated the restraining order. Online jail records show Francis was released Saturday on $20,000 bail. It was not immediately known if Francis has a lawyer. Neither Francis nor a representative for him could be reached for comment Saturday.

Stewart donates ‘X-Men’ costumes to museum

CALL 622-7710

CANNES, France (AP) — His surviving gay lover Pierre Berge didn’t want this film to see the light of day. But on Saturday, the controversial, no-holdsbarred story of one of the 20th-century’s greatest fashion designers, Yves Saint Laurent, who died in 2008, screened in competition at Cannes. The two-and-a-half hour feature examines how the late, great couturier’s life was tor n apart by casual sex and drugs and depicts his charged erotic relationship with a third man, Jacques de Bascher, who died of AIDS in 1983. It’s little wonder the movie ruffled 83-year-old Berge’s feathers. Director Bertrand Bonello’s “Saint Laurent”

is a dark and sexually explicit movie, featuring Gaspard Ulliel, who lost weight and bared all to play the title role, and Louis Garrel in the role of Jacques. It’s the second feature film on the legendary designer with the dark rimmed spectacles in less than six months. Unlike the first authorized film by Jalil Lespert, the Bonello project was publicly opposed Saint Laurent’s surviving life and business partner, Berge. Scenes of full nudity, drug use and references to hard gay sexual practices litter the film, spliced with contrasting scenes of the precision of the fashion atelier. The producer says the film was made not to attack Berge but to repre-

sent the truth behind the softly-spoken creator of the “Le Smoking,” who remains one of fashion world’s most enigmatic figures. “This film was never intended to be against him (Berge),” said the film producer Eric Altmayer. “Our ambition since the beginning was to make a film simply on Saint Laurent. The fact there was this second film liberated us from the constraints of a traditional biopic, to go deeper into the truth.” Almost peripheral in the movie are references to Saint Laurent’s artistic impact as one of the most mold-breaking designers of the 20th century, a man who irreversibly liberated women’s fashion during the 1960s sexual revolution.

Instead the designer is seen near death, frail, undignified and ravaged by pill abuse. In one of the strongest scenes, his beloved French Bulldog, Moujik, dies after munching though the myriad pills that have been scattered on the designer’s floor as he passes out. The director was refused rights to use YSL clothing in the filming. But during the press conference, the producer said being shunned by the establishment can spur creativity. “We had access to nothing, nothing at all not even a shirt, so everything you see in the film was recreated,” said Altmayer. “Fantastic work was done.”

Billboard Awards can use Michael Jackson hologram Roswell Daily Record

LAS VEGAS (AP) — A federal judge ruled Friday that the Billboard Music Awards can use a hologram of deceased pop icon Michael Jackson at this weekend’s show, rejecting efforts from tech companies seeking to block the digital performance. Judge Kent Dawson said there wasn’t enough evidence to show the planned 3-D image would violate patents held by Hologram USA Inc. and Musion Das Hologram Ltd. The companies own rights to technology known for digitally resurrecting deceased rapper Tupac Shakur at the 2012 Coachella music festival. “The court’s decision is not surprising,” attorney Howard Weitzman, who represented Jackson’s estate and dick clark productions, wrote in an email. “The request to stop this extraordinary Michael Jackson event was ludicrous.” Plans to use the hologram during the show Sunday emerged with the lawsuit, but they weren’t confirmed until the hearing Friday afternoon. Show producers had been promoting only a “history-making performance” at Las Vegas’ MGM Grand Garden Arena that would promote the singer’s latest posthumous album, “Xscape.” Hologram USA and Musion said in their emergency lawsuit Thursday that one of their products was being used without authorization by a competitor to create a segment that depicts Jackson performing a new song, “Slave to the Rhythm.” Dawson noted that the lawsuit didn’t provide evidence that the company’s patents were being used to create the Jackson hologram, and attorneys for the defendants said the techniques being used were in the public domain. Technology and visual tricks that can create holographic-type images have existed for decades, although the Shakur performance

sparked more interest in creating realistic performances of dead celebrities. Attorney Michael Feder, representing the show and Jackson estate, filed a response Friday, saying the holographic performance had been planned for months and was discussed with Alki David, who owns the rights to the technology that creates and projects lifelike images to appear alongside live performers through Hologram USA and Musion. Plaintiff’s attorney R yan G. Baker said his clients were disap-

pointed with the ruling, but the lawsuit will continue. “It’s only the very beginning of a case that will continue to be prosecuted by my clients, and ultimately they are confident that they will prevail and will recover all available damages for the defendants’ infringing conduct,” Baker said. Hologram USA obtained the rights to the patents after the bankruptcy of Florida effects house Digital Domain, which created the Shakur image to wide acclaim two years ago.

‘Halo’ TV series, ‘Halo 5’ game launching in 2015

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Master Chief is returning to the battlefield next year. Microsoft announced plans Friday to release the video game sequel “Halo 5: Guardians” for the Xbox One and a “Halo” television series to be produced by Steven Spielberg in fall 2015. The next entry in the sci-fi shooter series starring super-soldier Master Chief will run at 60 frames per second on a new engine created by “Halo” developer 343 Studios. “Halo 5” will mark the first time a “Halo” game has run at that frame rate, which provides a more realistic sense of motion on screen and increases accuracy for players. “‘Halo 5: Guardians’ is obviously a big deal for us,” said Frank O’Connor, franchise development director at 343. “It’s the next chapter in the Master Chief saga. It’s also a big deal for us because of the transition to the Xbox One platform. All of the ‘Halo’ games — more or less — have added something to the Xbox ecosystem.” Bonnie Ross, general manager at 343 Studios, noted that additional plans this year for the “Halo” franchise would be announced June 9 at Microsoft’s presentation at the Electronic Entertainment Expo, the largest annual gathering of the gaming industry. At last year’s E3, Microsoft showed footage featuring a cloaked figure revealed to be Master Chief encountering a bird-like robot in a desert with the words “2014: Your Journey Begins on Xbox One.” “Halo: Combat Evolved” launched in 2001 on the original Xbox and became a cultural sensation, spawning several sequels, spinoffs, novels and comic books set within the game’s universe. “Halo 4,” which was released in 2012 for the Xbox 360, smashed entertainment industry records

A liveaction digital series, “Forward Unto Dawn,” was released alongside “Halo 4.” Microsoft previously announced Ridley Scott was executive producing a similar multi-part “Halo” film. The Xbox One could use a boost from Master Chief.

Microsoft Corp. said last month that sales of its latest console had slowed to 1.2 million in the quarter through March, compared to the 3.9 million it sold during the holiday season. The total of 5.1 million was behind the 7 million in sales of the PlayStation 4 by rival Sony Corp.

The lawsuit also named John C. Textor, the chairman of Floridabased Pulse Entertainment Corp. who was the former head of Digital Domain. Pulse is accused of using the hologram techniques without a proper license. Textor said he could not comment publicly on the case. The lawsuit names Atlantabased Pulse Entertainment Inc. as a defendant. Spokesman Ken S. Johnson said the company was listed incorrectly because it had no connection the Billboard Music Awards.

Leave your mark

In March, Hologram USA sued Cirque du Soleil and MGM Resorts International over its show, “Michael Jackson ONE” at Mandalay Bay Hotel & Casino. The show features a performance by a digital rendition of Jackson, which the company also contends is an unlicensed use of its technology. The case is being handled in a Los Angeles federal court. Cirque du Soleil and MGM Resorts have been granted an extension until May 23 to respond to the lawsuit.

Get ready for Football



Football camp teaches skills and sportsmanship BY RANDAL SEYLER RECORD STAFF WRITER

Hundreds of Roswell youth will get the chance to experience football again this summer when the second annual Double J Double D Training Camp is held in Cielo Grande Park. The camp will be held from 6 to 7:30 p.m. on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays from July 14 until Aug. 7 at Cielo Grande Park. The camp is free to children aged 6years-old and up, and it gives the youth football players a chance to experience “grown-up” football, with multiple workouts over four weeks. “It is almost like two-a-days, especially if the kids are in another camp in the mornings,” said James Edwards, one of the founders of the program. “We’re not in competition with any other camps, and we encourage our students to attend any of the camps that they can.” Edwards and friend Jose Barreto came up with the idea of a football camp for kids that doesn’t cost anything to attend, and emphasizes the fitness and conditioning aspects of football as well as the game skills. The other two planners behind the event are Derek Fletcher and Dan Gonzales — and that is where the name “Double J Double D” came from, Barreto said. “We wanted to have an event where any child who wanted to play football could attend, and we had a great turnout,” Barreto said. In fact, where the camp founders expected 40-50 kids, they wound up averaging 120 kids per day by the end of the the camp. “We didn’t charge anything last year for the camp, and we won’t charge anything this year, but there will be a slight fee for the T-shirts,” Edwards said. Last year the

The Double J Double D Football Camp will return this year to offer a four-week football camp for Roswell children. The free camp will begin July 14 and will meet three times a week until Aug. 7 at Cielo Grande Park. Call 637-5532 for more information.

camp’s planners paid for the T-shirts out of their own pockets, and there were a lot more children than expected. “We won’t turn anyone away, and that is one of the reasons we wanted to have this camp,” Edwards said. “We want every kid who wants to play football and come to the camp to come.” Last year there were even some 5-yearolds who showed up for the camp, and the youngsters were put with older mentors to keep them out of trouble. “It’s hard to say to a 5-year-old ‘you can’t be here’ when his 6- or 7-year-old brother is playing.” The mentorship of the bigger kids to the smaller ones also teaches leadership and role model skills to the children, Edwards said. “I think we teach a lot more than just football,” he said. “We teach discipline, responsibility and dedication as well as the fundamentals of the game.” Barreto said he thought the level of youth league football was improved this past year by the children’s participation in the Double J Double D camp. “I think the kids were in better shape and there were fewer delays of games this year, because the young kids knew what a line of scrimmage was, and what a foul was.” The camp is also in line with the NFL Play 60 program and Heads Up Football program. The NFL play 60 campaign is designed to tackle childhood obesity by getting kids active through in-school, after-school and team-based programs, online child-targeted outreach on, and many partnerships with like-minded organizations. Heads Up is a program designed to prevent injuries to kids and to teach a better way to both coach and play the game. “We really want to stress the conditioning and the fundamentals,” Barreto said. “And most of all, we want the kids to have fun and develop good sportsmanship.”

Student achievement and boat motors C2 Sunday, May 18, 2014

I had an interesting educational experience recently with a boat motor. I took the boat in for a common problem, the motor was overheating. The mechanic started talking to me about the problem and instantly came to an obvious conclusion. As it turned out I had already tried this solution and the next three that we came up with. The mechanic looked perplexed and scratched his head. He was analyzing the data! When we talk about student achievement, many people think that there is a simple answer: have teachers teach more days, improve attendance, motivate students, buy new




books and the list goes on. Student achievement is not simple as we improve opportunities for all kids. As we look at our data and individual student achievement we must analyze the weaknesses and address those weaknesses. The mechanic said that he would research the problem and he started

The end result of the work is that the motor performs at an optimum level and the problems are eliminated. In our field the desired outcome is educated students ready for the next step in life. It is our duty to ensure that we prepare our students to enter the workforce, secure a vocational job or enter college. Education has changed drastically since the inception of No Child Left Behind

and now the transition to A-F grading and Common Core. It is necessary that we look at every child individually and assess their strengths and challenges using standardized test data. We assess educational growth and preparedness of each student in an effort to ensure their success. Unlike the boat motor, in education, students who do not meet educational standards have a difficult time catching up as the years go by. The motor will just quit, our students may struggle in life.

exercise due diligence with every invitation. You might consider meeting with the adults responsible for supervising the overnighter. Find out where it will be held and what activities are planned. If you’re wellacquainted with the person in charge, there’s probably little to worry about. If, however, this sleepover is being held in someone’s private home and you’re unfamiliar with the parents, I’d suggest that you meet with them beforehand to make sure that their values and perspectives are in line with your own. If this is a school- or churchsponsored event, you may discover that the teacher or leader would love to have you volunteer as a chaperone. Q: My husband and I divorced when our now-10-

year-old son was 3. He visits his dad frequently, but unfortunately gets little attention from my ex, who’s now remarried and has started a new family. My son tries to be brave, but I know he must feel hurt and rejected. What can I do? Dr. Greg Smalley, Vice President, Family Ministries: Yours is a heartbreaking situation, and my heart truly feels for you. Witnessing your son being neglected by his dad is painful, and you shouldn’t dismiss or minimize your feelings -- both for you and your son’s sake. After you’ve acknowledged and sorted out your own emotions, it’s important that you give your son the opportunity to identify and express his feelings, too. This is because children can’t grasp the com-

Parents are concerned about kids’ sleepovers

Question: What’s your opinion about over night group activities for elementary-grade children? We want our kids to have fun with their friends, but we’re concerned about exposing them to inappropriate influences. Jim: As the dad of a fifth-grader myself, I completely understand your struggle. It’s a sad fact that we live in a world that is increasingly dangerous and unhealthy for our kids. As parents, we must be mindful of what our kids are exposed to when they’re in someone else’s care. I realize we can’t keep our children in a safe cocoon forever. Eventually they’ll face external threats and temptations, and as parents, we’re responsible to equip them for that challenge as early as possible.




It’s important to look for appropriate opportunities that will allow your kids to step out from under your immediate oversight a little bit at a time.

For us, however, we’ve elected to encourage our kids’ growth in this area through avenues other than sleepovers. (Although we’ve done them in rare cases where we’ve known the families well.) Your situation and comfort level may be different. If so, I’d simply encourage you to

plex dynamics of broken relationships. They don’t see things for what they are, and often assume guilt for the breakup, believing that they’ve done something wrong. Don’t wait for your son to bring up the subject. He probably won’t, especially if he’s trying to be brave. Next, try to uncover what’s at the root of your ex-husband’s emotional neglect of your son. It may be that he’s avoiding you, his new wife is interfering, there’s financial strain, etc. Whatever the reasons, he needs to understand and feel the weight his actions are having on his son. You’re more likely to achieve this goal and agree to a solution if you appeal to his emotions, rather than by shaming or harassing him.

Finally, do everything you can to find a good man who can encourage and serve as a positive role model for your son. You might approach your father, someone from church, or a trusted teacher, coach or neighbor about the possibility of spending time with your boy. Your son will be sure to benefit, even if his father doesn’t participate.

‘Gotham’ not a Batman series VISTAS

Roswell Daily Record

When I first heard about this new series which FOX is putting together called “Gotham,” my Batman skepticism immediately went up. It didn’t help its case by revealing that it was a prequel series and involves child-Bruce Wayne. I despise child-leads in action TV series and movies. This is why I don’t like “Once Upon a T ime” and why “Star Wars: Episode I: The Phantom Menace” is a chapter of the Star Wars saga I like to pretend didn’t happen. When it came out that this new series was a prequel I was immediately turned off to the notion. Then more details emerged



about it. It seems like they are going the same direction as “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” in a way, that is, the series takes place in Gotham City like S.H.I.E.L.D. does the Marvel Universe, but is actually about the supporting cast you would see in a Batman movie. It appears the main star of the show is going to be

Commissioner James Gordon as a rookie detective and his partner Harvey Bullock, who is a shrewd police legend. On top of this we get to see the rise of such criminals as Catwoman, the Riddler and Penguin. The extended trailer discusses executive producer Bruno Heller introducing the series and explaining how all the criminals became who they are. The show will start with Bruce Wayne’s parents’ death. Jada Pinkett Smith will have a role designed specifically for “Gotham.” It seems her role will be a thorn in the side of Gordon. Director Danny Cannon,

who directed the pilot episode said in the trailer, “It is a good old-fashioned cop show, set in the most dangerous, vivid world imaginable.” Early speculative reviews have critics on the fence about the show’s potential. “It’s promising to see Jim Gordon take center stage in the first footage, even if he is sharing it with elements of the Batman mythology that have been deeply explored already,” Andrew Dyce of said. “Luckily, the darker side of Gotham City seems to be important in the show’s DNA as well, and with this brief look implying something between The CW’s

‘Arrow’ and a typical police procedural, it’s obviously the characters who will help differentiate the action from similar ‘realistic’ crime dramas.” Drew McWeeny of doesn’t share Dyce’s optimism. “I already see people on Twitter saying they can’t wait to watch this, and I feel the exact opposite. I feel like I could go the rest of my life and never tune into this and never miss a thing,” McWeeny said. “What really bugs me, more than anything else, is that they had a chance to make this show over a decade ago. ‘Bruce Wayne’ was the idea before ‘Smallville’ happened, and they

RPD celebrates National Police Week This week is the annual National Police Week. Local law enforcement Officers from the Roswell Police Department, Chaves County Sheriff’s Office, and State Police provide a much needed service to the community of Roswell, Chaves County, and State of New Mexico. Every day officers rapidly respond to assist people within our community during times of crisis. National Police Week, established by Congress in 1962, is a designated week when not only law enforcement officers who have lost their lives in the line of duty are recognized, but also the men

and women who continue to serve and protect communities nationwide.

Although this week is designated as a time when residents are encouraged to thank law enforcement officers, anyone can thank them for a job well done at any time of the year.

President John F. Kennedy signed a proclamation which designated May 15 as Peace Officers Memorial Day and the week in which that date falls as Police Week.

The Memorial Service at the Capital began in 1982 as a gathering in Senate Park of approximately 120 survivors and supporters of law enforcement.

Commission accepts manager’s resignation

SILVER CITY — Grant County commissioners formally accepted the resignation of County Manager Jon Paul Saari on May 8, the day before it became effective, though Commission Chairman Brett Kasten said they were aware of his plan to leave more than two weeks earlier.

The commission hopes to have a full-time manager on board by August or September, Kasten said. — Silver City Daily Press

Death may be from bad heroin batch

SANTA FE — Police say a bad batch of heroin in the city may have caused the death of a 17-year-old girl who died at the Santa Fe County Juvenile Detention Center on May 8. Santa Fe Police reported the victim died shortly after being released from the hospital following an apparent heroin overdose. The girl’s name was not released because she was a juvenile. Because there were two other possible overdoses that occurred around the same time and in the same part of town, Santa Fe police are worried there might be a lethal batch of heroin going around. — KSFR Radio, Santa Fe

City’s police on the hot seat again

GRANTS — Three residents addressed the Grants Council on May 6 complaining about the city’s Police Department. “We need more officers and we need leadership,” Raymond Saavedra told the Council. “There is too much bad going on in this town.” Apparently, several of Saavedra’s rental units have been vandalized recently. Mayor Martin Hicks assured Saavedra that he and City Manager Paul Peña are currently working together on next year’s budget and that possibly a $5,000 sign on bonus for certified of ficers will be make the officer position a lot more attractive. The worst of the complaints about GPD to the Council was yet to come. Shortly after Saavedra addressed them, William Campbell and Lisa Rains approached the Council and pointed out blatant errors made by Lt. John Castaneda in the John Rains murder case and the possible murder case of Dave Campbell. Dave was found dead in Grants’ old jail on Dec. 26, 2010, and John Raines was allegedly killed at a party in Grants on Jan. 15, 2012. Augustine Chavez is being charged for Rains’ death. His trail is set for August. However, there have been no arrests for the alleged murder of Campbell. William said there is evidence, including DNA, that his brother was murdered. — Cibola Beacon

Delegate seeks referendum on term limits

WINDOW ROCK, Ariz. — Shiprock Council delegate Russell Begaye has submitted a resolution to the Navajo Nation Council that would allow members of the tribe to vote on whether they want their tribal leaders to be able to run for more than two terms for tribal President. The reform laws put in place in 1990 restrict a tribal President from running for more than two terms but, four years ago,

VISTAS the Navajo Supreme Court ruled that this meant two consecutive terms. That allows a tribal President, after serving eight years, to sit out a term and then be able to run again for another eight years in office. That's why Joe Shirley Jr., who has served for eight years, is allowed to run again in the upcoming election. To change the law back to its original intent, Begaye is required to get voter approval. “The referendum submitted to voters of the Navajo Nation will, if approved, limit a person to serve as Navajo Nation president to two terms in a lifetime,” the bill reads. “The two terms can be served at any time, whether consecutively or not.” The bill also says that if voters approve the bill, it would be applied to people who are running in the 2014 election. That last part may find itself going to the Navajo Supreme Court for approval. The reason centers on when the referendum would be held. Ballots for the primary are going to be printed in June with the summer session not scheduled until July, so if no special session is held, the earliest it can be on the ballot is in the general election, according to tribal election officials. If Shirley wins the election, he could argue that his selection supersedes the referendum vote, which means that the Supreme Court would have to get involved. — Navajo Times

Speaker’s suit sent to Peacemaker Court

WINDOW ROCK, Ariz. — Speaker Johnny Naize's suit against the 12 Council delegates and executive director of Legislative Services who placed him on paid administrative leave has been referred to the peacemaking process. Council placed Naize on paid administrative leave during an April 4 special session for allegedly having conspired and bribed former and current delegates with money from discretionary accounts. He is accused of misusing almost $37,000 in discretionary funds and faces one count of conspiracy and 10 counts of bribery. In an order issued to both parties, Window Rock District Court Judge Carol Perry agreed with Naize’s May 5 request to have the matter resolved in peacemaking, the Diné traditional method of dispute resolution. “The court also agrees that a restoration of healthy relationships is in the best interest of our government and the people,” Perry said — Navajo Times

Casino enters second year with more rooms

WINDOW ROCK, Ariz. — Twin Arrows Navajo Casino celebrated its first anniversary recently with the opening of another 110 rooms in its resort hotel. The first year has been a struggle for the Navajo Nation’s most expensive casino (more than $130 million). The opening of the three other Navajo casinos in New Mexico — Fire Rock, Northern Edge and Flowing Waters — were marked by better -thanexpected attendance and revenue, but Twin Arrows did not meet financial or attendance expectations. While the casino brought in enough to pay for its operating expenses and the salary of the 800 or so employees, the enterprise was only able to pay the interest on the money it borrowed from the tribe to build it. “That was about $24

GAO lauds uranium cleanup progress

WINDOW ROCK, Ariz. — According to a U.S. Gover nment Accountability Office report on the Navajo Nation’s uranium contamination, the five federal agencies involved with the first five-year plan to address the legacy of uranium waste on the reservation have met or exceeded most of the plan’s target goals. The report, released May 5, reveals that the multiagency plan is making progress on assessing contaminated mines, rebuilding contaminated structures, providing safe water supplies and cleaning up some high-priority sites. The five federal agencies are the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Department of Energy, Bureau of Indian Af fairs, Nuclear Regulatory Commission and Indian Health Service. The GOA conducted the study because 4 million tons of uranium ore were extracted from mines on the Navajo reservation for developing the U.S. nuclear weapon stockpile, and for 30 years thereafter the Navajo people have lived with the environmental and health effects of uranium contamination from this mining in the Cold War Era. Of its eight objectives, the GAO said the five agencies met six targets, including cooperating and working with the Navajo Nation Environmental Protection Agency. The GAO also said that the reasons why the agencies met the targets were primarily because additional federal and other resources were dedicated to these efforts, unlike in previous years. — Navajo Times

Administrator allegedly assaults professor

ESPANOLA — The city’s Police Department forwarded to the First Judicial District Attor ney’s of fice a charge of simple assault against a Norther n New Mexico College administrator who allegedly assaulted a college professor. The charge stems from a Feb. 18 meeting between Norther n’s Human Resource Director Bernie Padilla, Vice President for Student Advancement Ricky Serna and assistant professor James Biggs. The following is a summary of the incident report, written by officer Michelle Talache: Padilla and Serna called a meeting with Biggs to discuss a Rio Grande Sun article regarding a complaint Biggs filed against Northern for improper use of federal funds. Biggs said things got out-of-hand during the meeting after administrators accused him of encouraging his students “to go elsewhere for education.” Upon hearing this troubling accusation, Biggs told investigators he rose from his seat and placed a finger on the paperwork in front of him to point out something. It was at this time, Biggs said Padilla abruptly got out of his seat and jumped into Biggs face yelling, “Hit me. Hit me.” Biggs told the officer that Padilla’s aggressive behavior made him feel threatened. “Mr. Biggs felt he (Padilla) was going to strike him at any time as Mr. Padilla raised his right fist,” the incident report states. — Rio Grande Sun

Sheriff pleads the Fifth to questions

ESPANOLA — It’s been nearly a month since details emerged about a lawsuit settlement that revealed the Rio Arriba County Commission paid out more than $100,000 to settle a wrongful termination suit brought by former County employee and Sheriff Tommy Rodella’s political nemesis, James Lujan. Now new details have emerged, which show that under the advisement of his attor ney, Yvonne K. Quintana, Rodella pleaded the Fifth Amendment to approximately 50 of the 62 questions concerning the Rio Arriba Sheriff’s Office Scholarship fund. The Fifth Amendment protects citizens from selfwhich incrimination, means one doesn’t have to answer questions if it will suggest he or she violated the law. Rodella said he answered the questions in a “second and subsequent deposition,” but the second deposition could not located as of press time. Many of the unanswered questions asked by Lujan’s attorney Michael Schwarz, were basic, such as “Does Mr. Ar nold serve on the board of directors with the Rio Arriba Sheriff’s Scholarship Fund?” Others were point-blank questions regarding criminal activity such as, were tickets fixed to provide revenue for the scholarship fund? Lujan was the plaintiff in the lawsuit. — Rio Grande Sun

Teenagers arrested after girl raped

ESPANOLA — Two boys, ages 15 and 16, have been arrested by State Police following the alleged April 27 brutal rape of an 18-yearold girl on South McCurdy Road. State Police arrested Jacob Martinez, 15, of Santa Cruz, on April 27, and Irin Martinez, 16, of Española, on May 1, court documents state. Jacob Martinez was charged with first-degree criminal sexual penetration and kidnapping. Irin Martinez was charged with first-degree criminal sexual penetration, kidnapping and tampering with evidence. Española Police first responded to the call at 1:29 a.m. April 27. Officer Victor Grossetete found the victim crying and bleeding. Two minutes after he had been dispatched, the Española Fire Department was dispatched to the scene and the victim was transported to Santa Fe shortly thereafter, the logs state. The victim suffered from extreme hemorrhaging and was taken to the operating room for emergency surgery. A nurse told police it looked like the victim had been raped, State Police Agent Jessie Whittaker wrote in an affidavit for a

search warrant of the house where the alleged rape occurred. “When Officers responded, they observed a blood trail within the house as well as on the porch of the residence,” Whittaker wrote. Whittaker and State Police Officer Shayne Beckford conducted a series of interviews with multiple witnesses who changed their stories several times. State police seized bloody pants, underwear and shoes, normal-sized and miniature bottles of liquor, pills, three cell phones, insulin needles and VHS tapes from a surveillance system. — Rio Grande Sun

State auditor: Fraud probe process flawed

TAOS — Last month, an inter nal investigation found allegations of fraud and collusion brought against T aos Schools Superintendent Rod Weston could not be substantiated. But a disagreement exists between the school board president and the state auditor’s office as to whether the district followed proper procedures. Evan Blackstone, chief of staff at the state auditor’s office, said the district never informed the auditor’s office that it was investigating allegations of fraud and collusion against Weston and members of the special education department. Blackstone told The Taos News that governing bodies have a “fiduciary responsibility” to notify the auditor’s of fice so the auditor’s of fice can ensure the investigations are conducted properly. “As a general good government practice, agencies should timely notify the State Auditor of fraud allegations so auditors may thoroughly assess the risk to public funds,” Blackstone said in a statement. School board president David Chávez said had the investigator the district hired uncovered any evidence of criminal violations, the district would have notified the auditor’s of fice. In response to Blackstone’s statement, Chávez said in an email to The T aos News that he could not find “any evidence of State Auditor training for school board members regarding ‘good government practice’ concer ning notifications of allegations of fraud.” Chávez cited NMSA 1978 Section 12-6-6, which states: “Any agency or independent auditor shall report (any violation of a criminal statute in connection with financial affairs) immediately to the state auditor.” — The Taos News

Turner ranch protests lost ag status

TAOS — Vermejo Park Ranch, owned by media

m o g u l T e d T u r n e r, claims it is being “unduly penalized” by the county assessor’s office for practicing sustainable forestry and grazing practices. The half-million acr e ranch is protesting its taxable value, arguing the Taos County portion of the property should enjoy a discount because it is used for agriculture. The assessor’s office revoked the ag classification for 2013, asserting that the primary purpose of the full-service guest ranch is commercial, not agricultural. Ver mejo Park encompasses 591,000 acres that straddle the New Mexico/Colorado border, including 30,700 acres in T aos County. A protest filed last week argues the Taos County acreage should be valued at $2.9 million instead of the $17.7 million asserted by the assessor’s office. At stake is around $90,000 in potential tax revenue. — The Taos News

Animal control ordinance could get teeth

TAOS — Taos County’s animal control ordinance could get some real teeth if commissioners approve revisions to the code recommended by animal welfare advocates. Proposed changes to the ordinance, which passed in 2011, would increase penalties for animal owners who repeatedly violate the code. Dog and cat owners would also be required to spay or neuter their pets, with some exceptions. And, if approved, the changes would greatly expand the definition of cruelty to animals to align with state laws while imposing tighter restrictions on kennels. “The biggest changes would be the requirements on the public for the care of the animals,” said Ann Weaver, a member of the county’s Animal Control Advisory Board that drafted the proposed changes. A new section would clearly outline the responsibilities of animal owners and broaden the definition of neglect. Animals would need to be provided not only with food, shade and ventilation as provided in the existing code but also water, adequate shelter and veterinary medical care. Basic cleaning and grooming would also be required under the proposed changes. The revisions would outlaw abandonment, defined as the relinquishment of an animal “in a location where any reasonable person would know the animal has little chance of finding food, potable water, adequate shade and shelter.”

DEAR ABBY: I have been working hard to advance in my health care career so I can give my family a decent life. I have worked my way up from poverty, paying my own way, earning my degree through the military and sheer determination. I have reached a point where I would like to enjoy life a little more, but my husband thinks I am being “materialistic.” We fight often over my wardrobe spending. I believe the clothes I wear, mostly nice skirt suits and heels, are part of my job and image. I believe it has helped me to get ahead. I don’t buy

overly expensive items, but they aren’t cheap. I wear the things I buy for years and have a $200-a-month budget for what I may need, even though I don’t always spend it. I think I have earned the right to shop a little, which will ultimately lead to bigger and better things for my family, so why does my husband make me feel so guilty? CLOTHES MAKE THE WOMAN

DEAR C.M.T.W.: Not knowing your husband, it’s difficult to say, but I’ll throw out a few ideas. Could he be insecure or intimidated by your professional image? Could he be jealous on some level? In what kind of environment was he raised? Was his mother’s “uniform” a housedress? If you are earning good money and your family is being provided for, then you are certainly entitled to spend some of it on yourself. And you shouldn’t have to apologize for it. #####

DEAR ABBY: I am getting married in October,


and my fiance, “Brad,” and I are having trouble seeing eye-to-eye on the name change issue. Brad’s family is originally from the North, and my family is from the South. He and his family are convinced that I should drop my maiden name, keep my middle name, and take his name as my new last name. However, the women in MY family have always kept our maiden names, added their new husband’s last name to theirs and dropped their middle names. This is about the only thing Brad and I can’t seem to agree on. What can I do when my mother says one thing and my sweetie says another? With your years of experience, I hope you can steer me in the right direction. BRAD’S BRIDE IN SOUTH CAROLINA DEAR BRIDE: It’s YOUR name. So do what you are most comfortable doing, because it’s the name you will have to carry ‘til the day you die (or



Family Circus

DEAR ABBY: I am under a lot of stress, but the woman I am with doesn’t know it. I am 17, and I have been sleeping with my 38-year -old aunty. She’s married and has three children. She’s my mum’s sister. We’ve slept together seven times and we can’t stop doing it. I think I’m in love with her. I know this is wrong. I need advice. Please help. LOVESICK TEEN IN THE U.K. DEAR LOVESICK: Being “in love” shouldn’t cause stress; it should relieve it. You know what you are doing is wrong, and YOU must be the adult and end this relationship. If you don’t, it will bring heartache and turmoil to you and the rest of the family. By having an adulterous and incestuous affair with you — her nephew and a minor — your aunt is behaving like a sexual predator.

I understand putting them up a few days before, but it can get confusing if there is no date on the sign and the sale has passed. It also makes the neighborhood look bad when signs are left up forever. If you are going to put up signs, for whatever reason, please take them down as soon as they are no longer needed.” Helen K. in Alabama Heloise

For Better or For Worse


Dear Heloise: With the warmer weather, kids are playing outside more, and with that comes grass stains on their clothes. Do you have any hints on how to get these stains out? Paula C. in Louisiana I do have a hint on how to get these stubborn stains out! Take a liquid laundry detergent or a prewash spray and rub it into the stain. Wash the garment in the hottest water that is safe for that particular fabric, and use an enzyme detergent. You may need to repeat the process before putting it in the dryer, so always check to make sure the stain is fully removed. I have put together a pamphlet with all of my solutions for hard-to-remove stains. To receive a copy, send $5 and a long, self-addressed, stamped (70 cents) envelope to: Heloise/Stain Guide, P.O. Box 795001, San Antonio, TX 78279-5001. Have a mud stain? Let dry first. Then brush off as much as you can, treat with prewash spray or liquid laundry detergent and wash as usual. Heloise


Dear Heloise: I always found it difficult to read the measurement markings inside the lids of liquid laundry detergent. My solution was to use the lightercolored lids from my brand when they would occasionally come out with them on certain scents. The lavender lids seem the easiest to read, or the light-green ones. I just keep the same light lid and continue to switch it out and throw away the dark-blue lid that comes on each new container of detergent. Cara D., Springdale, Ark. Dear Heloise: Our home has some light fixtures that hold two or three bulbs and require a ladder to replace a bulb. My wife suggested that all the bulbs be replaced while I’m up on the ladder. We place the good ones back in the container, label them “used” and then use them in the fixtures that we can reach from the floor. A Lucky Husband in Arkansas

CANNES, France (AP) — The Associated Press is all over the Cannes Film Festival — from its glitzy premieres to the celeb parties and quirky moments in between. Here’s what reporters have seen and heard:

Look of the day: Cate Blanchett Radiant Academy Award-winner Cate Blanchett broke the fashion mold with panache at Friday’s “How to T rain Your Dragon 2” screening at Cannes in a multi-colored, bejeweled bodice and a chic black pleated floor length chiffon skirt, courtesy of Givenchy. While Cannes is a mainstay of va-va-voom ball gowns, Blanchett stayed ahead of the fashion pack by thinking outside the box. Her bold look got her noticed for all the right reasons — sapphire chandelier Chopard earrings added a touch of class. The colorful, tropical plume embellishments on the bust, taken from a fall-winter 2014 ready-to-wear look by Riccardo Tisci, also nicely mirrored the dragon-theme of Dreamworks’ latest animated picture, for which she lends her vocal talents.

Weinstein’s Slate Harvey Weinstein’s annual Cannes presentation promoted films featuring a buff Jake Gyllenhaal, a Shakespearean Michael Fassbender and an oldschool Bill Murray. Touting upcoming releases to buyers and media, , the Weinstein Co. co-chairman previewed footage Friday that, perhaps most excitingly, included a fiery Fassbender as lead in a stylish “Macbeth,” (no release date yet). He also showcased a lean, muscular Gyllenhaal in training scenes from the currently-in-production boxing drama “Southpaw.” From “St. Vincent,” which hits theaters in October, Murray appears to be in broad comedic form as an outlandish next-door-neighbor to a

young boy he reluctantly mentors. Weinstein arrived in Cannes after his conspicuous absence at the festival’s opening night premiere, the Grace Kelly melodrama “Grace of Monaco.” Weinstein is to release the film but has feuded about the final cut with the director, Olivier Dahan. Dahan said Wednesday their differences have been resolved. Weinstein, who promoted “Grace of Monaco” in Cannes last year, said he was on a previously planned humanitarian trip to Jordan during the premiere. “That was planned long before I even knew that ‘Grace’ was going to be the opening night in Cannes,” Weinstein said. Naomi Watts (”St. Vincent”) and R yan Reynolds (period romance “Tulip Fever”) were on hand for the presentation. Other notable films previewed included the children’s book adaptation “Paddington” (due out in December), T im Burton’s promising-looking “Big Eyes” (opening Christmas), about the painter Margaret Keane (Amy Adams) and the undated “Suite Francaise,” a World War II drama set in France starring Michelle Williams.

Ferrera Dress Diver A man rushed onto the red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival and dove beneath actress America Ferrera’s dress. Security officials quickly pulled the man away as he tried to hide under Ferrera’s voluminous dress before the Friday premiere of “How to Train Your Dragon 2.” It was a surprising and rather bizarre development on a red carpet renowned for its strict decorum. Yet Ferrera didn’t seem ruffled on the carpet and was in good spirits at the movie’s after-party, laughing with guests and taking pictures. She declined comment on the incident, however, and festival organizers didn’t immediately return messages about the matter. The former “Ugly Betty” star was on her way into the Palais des Festivals for the world premiere of the DreamWorks animated sequel. Phoenix’s Last Film More than 20 years after his death, River Phoenix’s last film is finally getting a release. Cinemavault announced Friday that it has sold the North

American distribution rights of “Dark Blood” to Lionsgate. The film has been in limbo since Phoenix died of a drug overdose in 1993. He was in production on the movie at the time. “Dark Blood” was left unfinished and most expected it would never see the light of day. Director and co-writer George Sluizer, however, pushed to complete it, despite spending years battling an insurance company that made a claim about Phoenix’s drug use. In 2012, Sluizer edited together an unfinished version that premiered last year at the Berlin Film Festival. Lionsgate is planning to release the film on video-ondemand. In “Dark Blood,” Phoenix plays a young widower who retreats to the desert after his wife dies of radiation following nuclear tests near their home. Blanchett The Jokester Cate Blanchett had plenty of witty replies — a couple on the saucy side — as she answered sometimes wacky questions during a Cannes news conference for the upcoming “How to Train Your Dragon 2.” The two-time Oscar -winner got most of the questions at Friday’s event, which also included stars America Ferrera, Jay Baruchel, Djimon Hounsou and DreamWorks co-founder Jeffery Katzenberg. Some of the queries were a bit off-kilter: One reporter asked if Blanchett let her children play with her trophies. “Every morning, mommy sits them down, and I get my two Oscars out and I let them stroke them for 15 minutes before they go to school if they are good,” she said to laughter. Another reporter mistakenly called her by the wrong prefix. “It’s Ms. Blanchett, not Mr. Blanchett. I’ve played a few men though,” she quipped. The biggest laughs came when a reporter asked how was “the experience of training your dragon?” “How do I train my dragon?”

she said naughtily. “I don’t know if I want to answer that in public.” “How To Train Your Dragon 2” premiered Friday at the Cannes Film Festival out of competition.

Solidarity With Turkey Miners The stars of the Turkish film “Winter’s Sleep” are showing their solidarity for those affected by a mining tragedy at home as they promote their film in Cannes. The actors and director held up signs with the hashtag Soma during their photo call Friday for the movie. Soma is the Turkish city where at least 284 people were killed in a fire in a coal mine, the country’s worst mining accident. There has been an outcry of anger and protests from the public, some of whom blame the government for not taking action to correct alleged safety problems in Turkey’s mines. “Winter’s Sleep,” by director Nuri Blige Ceylan, is a family drama starring Haluk Bilginer, Demet Akbag and Melisa Sozen. All four held the signs for photographers on Friday.

Watts: Stop Male Comparisons Oscar-nominated Naomi Watts says she’s had enough with female directors constantly being sized up to their male counterparts. Speaking with The Associated Press, the “Impossible” star said that “female directors and actresses have a different voice, different stories. It’s not helpful to be compared to men.” Watts, who wore a pink strapless dress and long Bulgari white gold and diamond necklace, was in Cannes on Thursday night to attend Calvin Klein’s “Women in Film” alongside Julianne Moore, Lupita Nyong’o and Rooney Mara. The underrepresentation of women in directorial roles has been a hot topic at this year’s Cannes Film Festival, with Jane Campion — the first female filmmaker to have ever won the Palme d’Or — sitting as jury president.
