Veterans, fallen heroes honored at local services BY TIMOTHY P. HOWSARE RECORD EDITOR
Two services were held back-to-back in Roswell Monday morning to honor veterans and fallen heroes. At 8 a.m., a prayer breakfast was held at the Roswell Elks Lodge No. 969 at which a remembrance was given for prisoners of war and those missing in action. A small table with a single chair and a lit candle was set up in front of the podium, which Scott Montgomery, leading knight of the Elks Lodge, said symbolized POWs and MIAs. The guest speaker was Mayor Dennis Kintigh. He commented on the irony of politicians, like himself, being called upon to speak at Memorial Day events. He said politicians are always asking for something, whether it be votes or money. Kintigh said if it wasn’t for the sacrifices of veterans and active service personnel, elected officials would not even have the right to address a gathering of people as he was doing at the Elks Lodge. Tom Blake sang the national anthem and led a

sing-along of several other patriotic songs. Blake also performed at the Memorial Day ceremony held at 10 a.m. at South Park Cemetery, singing to recorded tracks instead of accompanying himself on guitar. He could be seen in the minutes leading up to the 10 o’clock hour hastily setting up sound equipment. “I’m mostly running the PA at this one,” he told the Daily Record reporter. Blake said it can be a bit frantic when he has to per for m at two events back-to-back, but was nonetheless exuberant in his performance of “God Bless the USA.” The guest speaker at the 10 a.m. ceremony was John Taylor, a local veterans’ advocate who writes a weekly column on veterans’ issues for the Daily Record. Taylor was born in New Mexico, attended the Virginia Military Academy and then moved back to New Mexico. A Vietnam veteran, TayTimothy P.

Cadets achieve officer rank

Family of cadet Jonathan Touchet pin his stripes at the commissioning ceremony Friday at Pearson Hall.
Twenty-four for mer cadets at New Mexico Military Institute can now rightfully say their top boss is the commander-in-chief of the United States. An Army ROTC Commissioning Ceremony was held Friday morning at Pearson Auditorium on the NMMI campus. Upon completion of their two-year cadet program, the young men and women were sworn in as second lieutenants in the U.S. Army. The commissioning address was given by Maj. Gen. James B. Laster, a Marine officer and NMMI alumni who serves at the
Special Operations Command headquartered at MacDill Air Force near Tampa, Fla. Rather than addressing the crowd from the podium, Laster spoke from the auditorium floor so he could be closer to the cadets. Although he chose the Marine option, Laster said the Army school training he received at NMMI was essential to his career as an officer. “I am proud of both the Marines and the Army,” he said. He told the cadets they now have an “awesome responsibility” to be leaders. He said every morning during his briefings in
Tampa he hears just how the world is a dangerous place. Although al-Qaeda has been weakened to the point it is now on “life support,” he said, there are still other threats to our nation’s security. “The Ukraine-Russia conflict was a strategic surprise,” he said. “It’s a dangerous world. You have been commissioned by the president to make sure our military is led.” He then thanked the parents of the cadets. “Your cadet didn’t just arrive here,” he said. “You gave them a solid foundation.” See CADETS, Page A3
Carlsbad man killed ‘EnhanceFitness’ keeps seniors moving in two-vehicle crash STAFF REPORT
A 38-year -old Carlsbad man died Saturday morning when he was ejected from his pickup truck after colliding with a commercial truck in Lea County. Chad Pennington was airlifted to Lea Regional Medical Center, where he succumbed to his injuries, according to the New Mexico State Police. The driver of the commercial truck, Refugio Soto-Ochoa, 47, of El Paso, was not injured in this crash. At approximately 11:18 a.m., of ficers from the State Police responded to the scene of a two-vehicle crash at the intersection of US Highway 62/180 and
New Mexico State Road 176. It was reported one subject had been ejected and severely injured. Initial investigation by the State Police determined a 2008 Mack commercial truck driven by Soto-Ochoa was traveling westbound on US Highway 62/180. During this time, a 2013 Chevrolet pickup driven by Pennington was stopped on New Mexico Road 176 attempting to turn westbound onto US Highway 62/180. As Soto-Ochoa approached the intersection, Pennington failed to yield the right of way, driving directly in the path of the Mack truck. The trucks See CRASH, Page A3

Seniors at the J.O.Y. Center are dancing, stretching and moving for fitness, and the cost of the class is nothing, thanks to the New Mexico Senior Olympics and the “EnhanceFitness” exercise program. “EnhanceFitness” is an evidence-based program for older adults that focuses on stretching, flexibility, balance, low impact aerobics and strength training exercise, said instructor Jan Melton. “The only requirement is that you be at least 50 years old,” Melton said. “The class is open to men and women.” Classes meet at 2 p.m. three times per week, on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays at the J.O.Y. Center. Each ses-
sion is one hour. “The exercises are done at the level of the participant,” Melton said. “If you need to sit in a chair and just do the ar ms, then that is fine.” The fitness program has been very successful, Melton said, and the program requires a fitness test of participants before they begin exercising. Four months later, the fitness test is re-administered so improvement in the participants’ fitness can be measured. The program is so successful, the National Senior Game Association recently recognized the “EnhanceFitness” program as the national winner of its Innovative Program Award. “The Aging and LongTerm Services Department is committed to supporting

Special Services teaches more than just job skills RANDAL SEYLER RECORD STAFF WRITER
Several things make the Eastern New Mexico University Special Services Occupational Training Program unique, but the most obvious advantage of the program is the passion for the students’ success found in the faculty. “Every person with a disability needs to know that they also have abilities, and capabilities,” says Leah Lucier, interim deputy director of the program. The Special Services Occupational Training Program is one of a handful of specialized programs in the U.S., and the three-semester certificate curriculum teaches students with various disabilities not only job skills, but also independence. “The friendships the students develop here, and the self-advocacy that we teach, I believe those are traits that really set us apart,” said program director Sigrid Webb. “The change you see in the students, from when they first arrive here all shy and quiet, to when they graduate and you can’t get them to be quiet, is really amazing,” said Lucier. Lucier said the program not only offers students job skills, it also offers dormitories, which makes the ENMU-R program unique in the nation. Lucier, whose son has Down syndrome, said she went to graduate school to study special education after her son was born. Advocating for disabled students is more than just a job for her. Likewise, Webb spent more than a decade working for the departments of Assistive and Rehabilitative Services in Texas, Miss., and New Mexico before coming to ENMU-R six years ago. Lucier came to ENMU-R just over a year ago, relocating from the Boston area, where she worked for the New England Center for Children. “We have students from all over the region and from across the U.S.,” Webb said. “We have even had two international students.” The Special Services program began 25 years ago with 10 students and just a few instructors, Webb said, but now the program averages 70 students per year and there are 16 instructors teaching a variety of job skills and life skills to students with handicaps ranging from simple learning disorders to autism, Down syndrome, cerebral palsy, and Fragile X syndrome. “Because of the wide range of abilities,

we keep our classes down to eight students per class,” Webb said. “We don’t really think of the students as having disabilities as much as they have abilities,” Lucier said. “Everyone has different abilities, and we work with our students to develop their abilities.” The program offers occupational training such as auto mechanics, food services, child care attendant, office skills, veterinary assistant, laboratory animal caretaker, welding and refrigeration/air conditioning tech. The students also take four core classes which help teach independent learning and conflict resolution skills. The students are also required to take adaptive P.E. classes, Webb said. “There is a physiology component to the P.E. classes where the students learn about their bodies,” Webb said. “The purpose of the core classes is to teach students the skills they need to be independent — dietary habits, shopping, laundry — as they are also learning their job skills.” The certificate requires the students to complete 45 credit hours in three semesters — fall, spring and summer. The latest group of students will graduate on
NEW MEXICO OVERHAULING 10 BRIDGES THIS YEAR SANTA FE (AP) — The state of N e w M e x i c o i s o v e rh a u l i n g 1 0 structurally deficient bridges this year and has plans to replace three dozen bridges next year. The Santa Fe New Mexican reports that 55 bridges out of almost 3,000 state-owned bridges are due for preventive maintenance, such as replacing deck joints, deck sealing and painting. Nearly 300 more bridges around New Mexico were listed as structurally deficient in the 2013 National Bridge Inventory, and it will cost millions of dollars to fix them all. Many are more than half-a-century old or have to carry a lot more vehicle traffic than they did when they were built. Like the rest of the country, New Mexico is faced with repairing aging transportation
structures at the same time that budgets are decreasing and the number of drivers is increasing. A structurally deficient bridge doesn’t mean it’s ready to collapse, but it does have load-bearing featur es that have deteriorated to poor condition. The state regularly inspects bridges, and when one is determined to be critically unsafe, either a weight limit is imposed on vehicles crossing the structure or it is closed. Over the last 20 years, the state has saved money by better maintaining its bridges. At some point, even maintenance isn’t enough and bridges need to be replaced, like the Airport Road bridge north of Las Vegas, New Mexico, that spans Interstate 25. “It was determined that the cost of maintaining the bridge was no

July 24, and next year’s students will report for their training in August. The ENMU-R program also offers a second-year program with advanced core classes and a second occupational certificate for students who want more training. “The second-year program not only allows the students to build on their core skills classes, but the second occupational certificate can make them more employable,” Lucier said. “A student who has a certificate in the veterinary assistant program might get a second certificate in office skills so they can work on the desk and in the office as well as in the back with the animals.” The students graduating from the Special Services program have an 83 percent employment rate upon leaving ENMU-R, Webb said, and the program boasts a 93 percent graduation rate. “We don’t lose too many students from the program,” Lucier said.

US PLANTS PREPARE FOR LONG-
TERM NUCLEAR WASTE STORAGE WATERFORD, Conn. (AP) — Nuclear power plants across the United States are building or expanding storage facilities to hold their spent fuel — radioactive waste that by now was supposed to be on its way to a national dump.
The steel and concrete containers used to store the waste on-site were envisioned as only a short-term solution when introduced in the 1980s. Now they are the subject of reviews by industry and government to deter mine how they might hold up — if needed — for decades or longer.
its nuclear waste, the Millstone Power Station overlooking Long Island Sound is sealing it up in massive steel canisters on what used to be a parking lot. The storage pad, first built in 2005, was recently expanded to make room for seven times as many canisters filled with spent fuel.
Dan Steward, the first selectman in Water ford, which hosts Millstone, said he raises the issue every chance he can with Connecticut’s congressional members.

The program is in the process of receiving a $100,000 culinary kitchen, which Webb said was a dream come true for the program. “We have to thank Gov. Susana Martinez for supporting us; she got us the grant for the kitchen,” Webb said. “We are so excited about that addition to our program.” Lucier said the program hopes to add a third-year training program in the future, allowing students to go even further in their education. “We also have students who complete our program and then go on to receive their associate degrees,” Webb said. “Ultimately, it is seeing the students develop and come out of their shells that really keeps me motivated,” Lucier said. “We want the students to develop that self-advocacy, that ability to speak up for themselves — because if they don’t speak up for themselves, then who will?”

If you want to buy a house, fix it up and then sell it at a profit, here are some guidelines for a more profitable project. Ask me, a real estate professional, to help you select a neighborhood with a recent history of increasing property values. Also look for a house that’s been on the market for a long time; the seller may be ready to deal. The house should be comparable in
size to its neighbors, structurally sound, but in need of modernization. Start with the landscaping and the home’s exterior. This is what the buyers see first. Next, concentrate on the “hot spots” of buyer appeal - a bright kitchen and modern baths. And look for low cost ways to increase closet and cabinet space.©

Archibeque, wife share journey as new parents of quadruplets SUBMITTED

Local veterans’ advocate John Taylor, who himself received two Purple Hearts during his tour of duty in Vietnam, was the guest speaker Friday at a memorial service held for veterans and fallen heroes at South Park Cemetery.
Veterans Continued from Page A1
He was awarded two Purple Hearts. “I was standing up twice when I should have been laying down,” Taylor told the Daily Record after the ceremony. He spoke on the importance of free speech in America. He said one day during the Vietnam War, he was watching the “Mike Douglas Show,” and Jane Fonda happened to be a guest. Fonda, who actively protested the war, went on and on bashing America’s involvement in the
war and called the soldiers “baby killers.” The other guest seated with Douglas and Fonda was Otto Preminger. Preminger, a theater and film director who died in 1986, was a Russian Jew who had immigrated to America. Taylor said Preminger sat quietly as Fonda spoke, then at the end of her diatribe said, “Young lady, if you had just said what you said in Russia you would have been shot.” Taylor emphasized that veterans protect the
rights of even those who speak against them. He then commented on the current controversy over excessive, and sometimes fatal, waiting times for veterans to receive health care through Veterans Affairs. According to sources who spoke to CNN, at least 40 American veterans died in Phoenix while waiting for care at the VA. “We as veterans have to ban together and forget our petty little dif ferences,” Taylor said. “We have 40 dead and have to stand up and speak out.”

He encouraged the new officers to get to know personally each of the soldiers they lead. “Know their names, know their background, know their family and know their strengths and weaknesses,” he said. Then he spoke about leading by example and the importance integrity. “When the shots start to fire, all their eyes will be upon you.” He told the new officers to never allow

May is Older Americans Month, which this year is focusing on injury prevention, including falls prevention. “EnhanceFitness” includes strength training and dynamic and static balance exercises, all of which are important in preventing falls, Melton said. Bob Johnson, another student at the J.O.Y. Center, said he lost 30 pounds over 18 months of attending “EnhanceFitness” classes. “It’s hard to keep up with these women,” Johnson said, jokingly. “They can really shake a leg.”

When Roswell native Adam Archibeque and his wife, Misty, found out last summer they were expecting, they had no idea just how extraordinary their parenthood journey would be. On Jan. 25 of this year — at just 28 weeks gestation — Misty went into labor, welcoming their new bundle of joy. And another. And another. And another! That’s right, Adam and Misty became the proud parents of quadruplets. Early births are common with higher-order multiple and the births, Archibeque quads were delivered at Texas Children’s Hospital in Houston, Texas, 14 weeks early by cesarean, just minutes apart: • Daniel Wyatt was born at 7:14 p.m., weighing two pounds, 15 ounces. • Evelyn Marie was second, also at 7:14 p.m., weighing two pounds, 14 ounces. • Waylon Thomas was third at 7:16 p.m., weighing, 3 pounds. • Last was little Ellie Dawn, also at 7:16 p.m., weighing 2 pounds, 3 ounces. As one might expect, delivery that early required some special care, and the babies spent 52 days in the neo-natal intensive care unit (NICU) of Texas Children’s, growing strong enough to eat and breathe on their own. On March 17, all four babies went home, and that was when the real fun began. Living close to family

has provided extra help as Misty and Adam adjust to their new normal. Even so, sleep has become a rare commodity for the new parents. The babies eat every three hours around the clock, so there is little time for rest. The average day consists of 32 bottles (and at least as many bottle washings), 4 quarts of formula, 40 diapers and one normalsized package of baby wipes. Bath time looks like an assembly line as Adam handles the bathing duties, then hands off to Misty for putting on lotion, diapering and dressing each of the babies. And then there are the endless loads of laundry to be washed — baby clothes, blankets, burp cloths, bibs – the poor washing machine gets about as much rest as Mom and Dad do. Tasks that used to be mundane, such as grocery shopping, can now be an ordeal as they try to
accomplish errands in record time between feedings.
“Routine is very important in our lives,” said Misty. “Otherwise, it would be impossible to accomplish feeding everyone along with the long list of other jobs that have to be done. It’s amazing how being as little as 30 minutes off schedule can completely disrupt our day.” Life has forever changed for the Archibeques, but the adventure is just beginning. The new normal of doing everything times four is one that will continue for many years.
The couple currently resides in Round Top, Texas, Misty’s hometown next door to grandparents Lloyd and Marie Nelius. Grandparents Randy and Dawn Archibeque still reside in Roswell. You can follow their journey at lotsobabylane.blogspot.com.
DAR donates books

Genora Canon, regent of the Roswell chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution, recently presented a copy of Rush Limbaugh's "Rush Revere and the Brave Pilgrims: Time-Travel Adventures with Exceptional Americans" to Washington Avenue Elementary School librarian Gloria Lucero. Also pictured is school principal Ron Tidmore. Canon, also the vice regent of the state Daughters of the American Revolution, said a copy of each of the books was being given to every elementary school in Roswell. "Our purpose is the preservation of history, as well as education," Canon said. She said copies of Dr. Walter Earl Pittman's "New Mexico and the Civil War" were being donated by the DAR to all of Roswell's middle and high schools. "A lot of people don't know the Civil War took place in New Mexico," Canon said. "Quite a lot of the Civil War took place here — more battles than people would think."
Greener across the Colorado border A4 Tuesday, May 27, 2014
BY BOB HAGAN NEW MEXICO NEWS SERVICES
The Greener Side is in a prefab metal building that looks something like a failed truckers’ pornstop, just off the interstate outside Pueblo, Colo. There’s no billboard and only the adjacent greenhouse, surrounded by a chain-link fence topped with strands of barbed wire, tips off the astute shopper that this is the first legal retailer of “recreational” marijuana north of Uruguay. Half the cars in the parking lot are from out of state, mostly from Oklahoma, T exas and Kansas. A security guard swipes my New Mexico license through a card reader, confirming that I’m legally eligible to buy up to
one-quarter ounce of marijuana for my personal use, and I join the line of customers inside. With its cheap paneling and hard plastic chairs, the tiny anteroom resembles a cut-rate dentist’s waiting room, but the atmosphere is much more cheerful. For about half the customers this is a first-time experience, and everybody is studying the menu on the wall and discussing the pros and cons of the various strains on offer. T ed and Marge (names changed to protect two nice people who are about to smuggle a half-ounce of marijuana across three state lines) are youngish retirees winding up a two-week road trip from Minnesota. Marge always wanted to see the Grand Canyon, Ted explains, and they were both tired of the cold and
snow, “so we just took off.” Now they’re stopping on their way home for one last adventure. Even medical marijuana is illegal back in Minnesota, Ted says. Her aunt had cancer, and her sons had to go out and buy it on the street, Marge confides. “It helped her a lot with the chemo.” In Colorado, pot sells legally for $130 to $140 a quarter ounce, including about $20 in state and local tax (there’s no federal tax, since Prez Choom and his posse in Washington, like Japanese soldiers isolated on some Pacific Island after World War II, are still stubbornly waging the War on Drugs). The clerk weighs your purchase and drops it in a little white paper bag. As I drove away I did some rough math in my head. If each
Roswell Daily Record
of those little bags represents $20 in taxes, and this place is serving 20 to 30 customers an hour on a weekday afternoon, that’s conservatively $20,000 in tax revenue every week, or about $1 million a year — half of it out of the pockets of non-residents. Plus the jobs: the security guard and sales clerks, accountant and general manager, the people tending plants out in the greenhouse. The economic impact ripples out through the local motels and restaurants as well. Why is New Mexico not in this business? Are we afraid Ted and Marge are going to get crazy on “reefer” and go on a Bonnie-and-Clydestyle rampage across Kansas? More likely they’re going to check into a local “pot-friendly”
motel, get high, and try to recapture their lost youth with some wild middle-aged sex. Then they’ll fall asleep watching cable TV. Is that such a bad thing? If you think legalization will make it easier for kids to buy dope, you don’t have enough teenagers in your life. If they’re honest with you, they’ll tell you illegal pot is easier to come by than legal but highly regulated beer or tobacco in New Mexico. Are we so committed to this failed 40-year crusade that we’re willing to soldier on, even when our neighbors are conceding defeat – and making a buck in the process? Here’s my suggestion to the Economic Development and Tourism Department: Make New Mexico’s new motto, “We have a spaceport! Let’s Get High!”
Jay Nixon and the summer of 100 vetoes “We’ve made too many compromises already, too many retreats. They invade our space, and we fall back. They assimilate entire worlds, and we fall back. Not again. The line must be drawn here! This far, no further! And I will make them pay for what they’ve done!” — Capt. Jean-Luc Picard, “Star Trek: First Contact” A year ago, Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer gave her veto pen a workout. Her fellow Republicans who dominate that state’s Legislature were refusing her request to pass a Medicaid expansion bill, bringing with it billions of dollars in federal investment. So she issued an ultimatum. She told the Legislature to stop sending her bills until they passed Medicaid expansion. They didn’t listen. So on May 23, she vetoed every bill that was sent to her that day, including at least a couple of them that she supported. It’s time for Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon to make like Capt. Picard and make them pay for what they’ve done. He should channel his inner Jan Brewer. The Missouri Legislature finished its work last week without even seriously debating a Medicaid expansion plan that is being pushed by Mr. Nixon, by the state’s Chamber of Commerce, by Democrats, by key Republicans including Sen. Ryan Silvey, R-Kansas City, and Rep. Jay Barnes, R-Jefferson City. Failing to expand Medicaid will have a disastrous effect on the state’s health care industry and overall economy. Hundreds of lives will continue to be lost because too few poor Missourians have reasonable access to health care coverage. But key Republican leaders refuse to budge. They think that passing Medicaid expansion, as 26 other states have, is giving in to Obamacare. Mr. Nixon will soon have on his desk 176 bills passed by the Legislature, as well as the budget bills. Here’s what he should do: Veto nearly all of them. Sign the budget, but line-item veto every corporate handout and special-interest freebie. Sign the legislation that helps children, like the bill that adds pre-K funding for troubled school districts, or the bill that reduces the wait for access to the state’s Children’s Health Insurance Program. But everything else goes. Even if you like it, or unions like it, or your key supporters like it. Prove that you’ve got as much courage as Ms. Brewer, who, by the way, won her battle. Now Arizona’s working poor have access to health care insurance. Missourians are waiting at the emergency room door. Mr. Nixon owns much of the blame for this problem. Yes, the GOP has nearly a veto-proof majority. Yes, big donors and far-right voters have encouraged the trend toward dangerous, extremist legislation. Moderating this trend is hard. But Mr. Nixon barely even tried. When he ran for governor in 2008, and re-election in 2012, and, during much of his time in the Governor’s Mansion, he’s followed a bunker mentality that belies his previous reputation as a hard-charging attorney general who stood up for the little guy. During that 2008 election, he advocated reversing the damaging Medicaid cuts enacted by Gov. Matt Blunt and his fellow Republicans in 2005. It was a strong campaign issue for him. But when the Legislature pushed back, the issue died without a whimper. The gover nor has since been accused by both Republicans and Democrats, most notably Rep. Chris Kelly, D-Columbia, of being disengaged from discussions with lawmakers. He has run the executive branch in the same way, making it next to impossible for lawmakers, reporters or citizens to access necessary public information. REPRINTED FROM THE ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH
In VA scandal, accountability for all — including Congress While Congress eagerly prepares its latest political stunt — a resolution to oust Gen. Eric Shinseki as Veterans Affairs Secretary — individual members might consider their own responsibility for the scandalous inadequacy of veterans’ health care. Unlike most of them, especially on the Republican side, Shinseki opposed the incompetent war plans of the George W. Bush administration that left so many American service men and women grievously wounded. And unlike most of them, especially on the Republican side, Shinseki has done much to reduce the backlog of veterans seeking care, despite the congressional failure to provide sufficient funding. Anyone paying attention

knows by now that those secret waiting lists at VA facilities — which may have led to the premature deaths of scores of injured veterans — are a direct consequence of policy decisions made in the White House years before President Barack Obama got there. The misguided invasion of Iraq — carried out with insufficient numbers of troops shielded by insufficient armor — led directly to thousands of new cases of traumatic brain
injury, post-traumatic stress disorder, and other physical and mental disabilities requiring speedy treatment. A substantial portion of the estimated $ 3 trillion price of that war is represented by the cost of decent care for veterans. But even as the war raged on, the Bush administration and Republicans in Congress repeatedly refused to appropriate sufficient funding for veterans’ health care. This financial stinginess toward vets was consistent with Bush’s refusal to take any steps to pay for his expensive war (and decision to protect his skewed tax cuts instead). As Alec MacGillis pointed out this week in the New Republic, legislators who voted for war while opposing
expansion of the VA are hypocrites, particularly when they claim to care about veterans. So are the Republican governors who refuse to expand Medicaid under the Affordable Care Act, which keeps hundreds of thousands of impoverished vets from getting health care. Breaking down the voting record, year after year, the pattern along party lines is clear: Republicans regularly propose cuts in VA funding and oppose increases sponsored by Democrats — a pattern that extends back to the first years of the Iraq and Afghan conflicts and continues to this day. As recently as last February, Senate Republicans filibustered a Democratic bill that would have added
paign that resulted in the murders of more than 10,000 people in Argentina. A new word, “disappearance,” was added to the lexicon of international law and concentration camps and secret detention centers proliferated in Argentina, all created with one single purpose: to eliminate political opposition to the regime of Rafael Videla. More specifically, Operation Condor referred to the process of secret arrest, torture and interrogation of suspects, followed by execution and secret disposal of their bodies — often in crematoriums, in mass graves or dumped out at sea from army helicopters. When Argentina was awarded the World Cup, the military junta saw it as an opportunity to portray the brutal regime in a good light on the world stage. Money was pumped in, money that the country could ill-afford.
Most telling of the true nature of the regime was the construction of huge concrete walls, dubbed “The Misery Walls” that were put up to cover the nation’s slums. Worst of all was that the junta increased the list of “disappeared” to the rate of 200 per day. The World Cup ran in spite of the campaign of terror. Some, me included, would argue that it ran in order to hide and legitimize a state-sponsored terrorist campaign. According to delisted documents, interviews and books written on the matter (I highly recommend Marguerite Feitlowitz’s excellent book, “Argentina and the Legacies of Torture”), life in the torture camps became, well, even more surreal during the games. Argentina is just as crazy
Murder, torture, soccer: The 1978 World Cup’s dreadful legacy
As the countdown to the 2014 World Cup in Brazil goes from weeks to days, it’s been impossible for me to ignore ghosts from the past. Cities across Brazil were wracked by protests again last Friday as citizens try to bring attention to the injustices they feel surround World Cup construction. But, regardless of how loud the protests become, FIFA will find a way to avoid serious problems because, well, World Cups have always been good at avoiding controversies … with one memorable exception. Fans call soccer “the beautiful game,” and there is no uglier stain on it than when Argentina won the 1978 World Cup. They did it on home turf and, to this day, if you ask most Argentines, they will say that it was one of the proudest moments in the nation’s history.

But that World Cup was held during the “Dirty War,” when tens of thousands of left-wing political activists in Argentina were “disappeared” and thousands more were held in torture camps. Argentina in 1978 must be understood from within the context of the Cold War and, most importantly, of Operation Condor — one of the lowest points in the history of humankind. Operation Condor was the code name for a genocidal cam-

Celebrate the vitality of seniors in May LOCAL
Roswell Daily Record
BY LORETTA CLARK ROSWELL PUBLIC LIBRARY
May is Older Americans Month, celebrating the vitality and aspirations of older adults and their contributions to our communities. Older Americans are influential members of society, sharing essential talents, wisdom, and life experiences with their families, friends, neighbors and organizations. The 2014 theme is “Safe Today. Healthy Tomorrow.” By taking control of their safety, older Americans can live longer, healthier lives. Many continue to work in the second half of their life. Of course earning money may be the major reason, but they may also be seeking greater personal meaning and social impact. For some people, this involves a new job or starting a new business based on a hobby or recreational pursuit. George Burns, American comedian, award-winning actor and best-selling writer, who worked until shortly before his death at the age of 100, stated: “I’d rather be a failure at something I love than a success at something I hate.” George’s career spanned vaudeville, radio and television; most including Gracie Allen, his co-star and wife. He was 79 when he began a film career. He authored 10 books and at the age of 92, he wrote “Gracie: A Love Story.” Many authors began writing late in life. Laura Ingalls Wilder was in her mid-60s when she wrote “Little House in the Big Wood”; the first of “Little House” series of books for children. Frank McCourt was in his mid60s when he published “Angela’s Ashes,” a tragicomic memoir for which he won the Pulitzer Prize.
The Roswell Public Library, 301 N. Pennsylvania Ave., has these books, plus a plethora of additional titles and subjects to aid the aged. The catalog of materials may be accessed at the library or online at roswellpubliclibrary.org. The website also features the library’s resources and services, a monthly calendar of events and Internet databases. Reference librarians are available to assist patrons in locating the books and information. One of the joys of working with books is connecting people and books.
Gabrielle Zevin’s “The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry” captures the joy of a bookseller connecting people and books. Each chapter begins with the title of a short story or book in which Fikry describes what he likes or dislikes about the book or author. This in turn, introduces the characters by what they read. Debra Thomas, technical services supervisor, shares the following that is a love letter to the joys of reading. A.J. Fikry has decided that his life has become a meaningless, glaring example of everything that can go wrong to an ordinary person on any given day. Stark and unfiltered, much like an expanse of gray concrete simmering in the glaring rays of a noon-day sun, his life after death is not to be desired. Granted, the death was his wife’s, not his, but that can be worse, can’t it? After his beloved Nic’s death, A. J.’s inter-
est in his Victorian cottage bookstore falters under his undemanding ownership. As a young man trying to deal with a new chapter of his life, he ritually, once a week or so, imbibes the spirits until he really doesn’t remember anything. It is during one of these “episodes” that he unlocks a climate-controlled glass display case. He removes Edgar Allan Poe’s “Tamerlane,” props it up across the table so he can see it, and proceeds to drink himself into oblivion. The book was a copy of the first thing written by an 18-year-old Edgar Allan Poe, and had an estimated value of $400,000. Finding it missing when he awoke the following morning did not bolster Mr. Fikry’s shaky confidence in life. Unlikely things happen, though, and the benefits of newly formed alliances and clear -cut wake-up calls make the unwilling gentleman become slightly more enamored of daily living. Then begins another chapter of his life which descends into the unexpected with the arrival of Maya, age 25 months, sitting abandoned in the middle of his bookstore holding a copy of “Where the Wild Things Are.” The baby immediately steals A.J.’s heart and unleashes a dramatic transformation. As we follow the chapters of his life, we find that sometimes the things we thought were the most important in life can lead us to even more complex dimensions of love, friendship, acceptance and the awareness that we actually lived our lives instead of just fading away. We remain as ink on the pages of a book which is dogeared, slightly tattered, chocolate and coffee-stained, sometimes

Dear Editor, Every day we are exposed to chemicals linked to cancer, infertility, autism, asthma and other diseases. Chemicals that did not exist when our grandparents were kids are now in our paints, our furniture, and our cleaning supplies. Yet, no one requires the chemicals used to make those products are safe. How is this possible? The answer lies in the failure of America’s main chemical safety law, the Toxic Substances Control Act, which has not been updated since President Ford signed it into law in 1976. The law is so weak that our government cannot even ban known cancer-causing chemicals like asbestos. Fortunately, there is bipartisan effort behind a new bill in Congress to update the chemical law. The bill needs substantial improvement if it is to get the job done, but we are asking our members of Congress do what it takes to protect our families. We should not have to wonder if the products we use every day are safe. Even Washington should understand that. And do not get me started on the WIPP fiasco. This will be my next letter to the editor. Sally Jo Davis Roswell
Dear Editor, Today I happen to run an errand for my wife on the north side of Roswell. As always, when I am near Sam’s/Murphy’s, I always top off the pickup or our car. It brought back memories of the days where there was a monopoly, price gouging and price fixing in our city. The price that I paid Sam’s today was $3.359 per gallon, I noticed the price at the “convenience location” at $3.599 difference of .24 cents per gallon. The farther that I drove south the higher the price. Brought memories when Roswell prices were 20 to 30 cents per gallon higher than the national average. I remember writing then-Attorney General Tom Udall of the state of New Mexico about the price we had to pay. His long full-page answer in part stated that areas in N.M. were controlled by monopolies for some reason or another he failed to sign the letter that he had written me. When I wrote him back asking are monopolies illegal, he did not answer my question. He has gone to greater level now, as the senator for our state, he and his fellow Democrats are trying to allow the United Nations get involved with our Article 2 of the Constitution. Folks, it is time for term limits; the people in office will not allow this to happen. We should demand that term limits be put in place. The Democrats and Republicans always state the “AMERICAN PEOPLE” demand! You can rest assured that both parties are party first, then we do not come in a close second. The Roswell Daily Record will only allow one letter per person per month. Bear with me, I have been watching the local candidates that are running for whatever office in the Republican primary. Some, when I read their qualifications, are a blast. One of the sheriff candidates, if elected, the rumor mill tells me that we have a sheriff Andy Taylor of Mayberry, N.C., by law he cannot carry a side arm. Another’s claims many years on the mounted patrol. A judge candidate claims to have served as an Eagle Scout and Scout leader. I guess when you are a community leader and become president of the United States, all bets are off. Phil Pantuso Roswell

$20 billion in VA funding over the next decade and would have built at least 26 new VA health care facilities. The Republicans killed that bill because Democratic leaders refused to add an amendment on Iran sanctions — designed to scuttle the ongoing nuclear negotiations — and because they just don’t want to spend more money on vets. Sen. Bernie Sanders, the Vermont independent who chairs the Veterans’ Affairs Committee, noted that the costs of the expansion bill could be covered by savings from the end of troop deployments in Iraq and Afghanistan.

School is out for the summer and the Summer Reading Adventure “Fizz, Boom, Read” is about the vast subject of science and robots. Registration for the Sumer Reading Adventure begins on June 1. All ages, from children to teens to adults may join in the fun. This week’s story times are a pre-summer reading adventure. Children will enjoy the “Dig, Plant, Read” and “Gardening” story and craft hours. All materials are provided for the related crafts; however, children must arrive in the first 15 minutes of the programs to participate in the craft sessions. The stories and crafts may vary between programs and the quantities of some craft items may be limited. “Sun, Seed, Soil” will be the theme of Traci Curry’s program when she visits the library for the Wednesday story times beginning at 10 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. Traci Curry is with New Mexico Farm Bureau and is the director of the New Mexico Ag in the Classroom program. Her presentation shares information about growing the food we eat and the science of agriculture. This program is well suited for school age children and their caregivers. Following the program, participants will receive handouts and a simple craft to take home. Seating is limited and is provided on a “first come, first served” basis. Gardening will be the topic of the 2 p.m. Saturday story time and kids could hear “Muncha, Muncha, Muncha”; “Planting a Rainbow”; “Five Sweet Strawberries”; “Wiggle and Waggle”; “Up,
irony, according to the Washington Post, “Republicans indicated that they prefer to dedicate the savings (of redeployment) toward deficit reduction” rather than improved services. What those who have served should get is the kind of care that has made the VA among the most successful health systems in the world (for those who can access its services). Instead they will get political swaggering, as members of Congress seek to score points against Obama by attacking Shinseki, and dogmatic opportunism, as right-wing ideologues insist

Some of the people that survived the camps tell stories of how some were taken out of their camps and driven to local bars, to watch the game and root for their homeland, rooting along with their jailers and torturers who, once the game was over, would go back to applying electrical shocks or whatever the day’s routine called for.

The fiction for recreational reading includes classics, mystery, western, science fiction, military, history, thrillers, humor, religion, etc. During June’s special sale, fiction titles may be bought for $1 each. This includes titles for teens, adults and children; however children’s picture books are $3 each. There are also non-fiction subject to be explored that are priced at approximately one-fourth of the original price. Books Again is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Tuesday through Saturday. The store is operated by Friends of the Library volunteers and all proceeds are used to benefit the library. Parking is located behind the store.
the VA is just another biggovernment program to cut or even abolish. The Republicans who are susceptible to such proposals should be very careful, lest they arouse the anger of the normally conservative American Legion and Veterans of Foreign Wars, whose leaders react with anger and outrage to the idea of privatization. As American Legion commander Dan Dellinger said in congressional testimony last week, his organization overwhelmingly “finds that veterans are extremely satisfied with their health care team and medical providers.”
reminds me that soccer is sometimes more than just a beautiful game, more than just a spinning ball propelled by über-talented multi-millionaires. Sometimes, as it will happen in Brazil, the tournament helps to mask the uglier side of politics in the host nation. There is a book called “How Soccer Explains the World,” written by Franklin Foer that makes the argument that soccer fans are passionate about the “beautiful game” because it appeals to our inner tribal tendencies and allows us to safely release the hooligan within each of us. That may very well be the case. But I will never forget that the 1972 World Cup, the first one I ever saw in a color TV, gave us a glimpse of the uglier side of sports — namely, how it can be exploited by an evil regime to bedazzle the world at large with an image of a peaceful, tolerant nation (if you want
Let’s not be distracted by the usual spurious assaults on “government health care.” And let’s not be misled by Washington’s loudmouths and poseurs — the warmongers who never face up to the price of their bloody enthusiasm in lives and treasure.

another example, just think of Adolf Hitler and the Munich Olympics Games of 1936.) Having said all of that, I must let my inner “tribal man” out for just a moment. I have to say, the United States got totally shafted. We were pooled into a group with Germany, Portugal and Ghana, the dreaded “Group of Death.” I would call it an injustice but, I’m still hopeful for our chances to make it to the next round.

Obama leads country in celebrating Memorial Day WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama led the nation in commemorating Memorial Day, declaring the United States has reached “a pivotal moment” in Afghanistan with the end of war approaching. Obama, who returned just hours earlier from a surprise visit with U.S. tr oops at Bagram Air Field in Afghanistan, paid tribute to those lost in battle ther e and elsewhere over history. He called them “patriots who made the ultimate sacrifice” for their country. “Early this morning, I fr om r etur ned Afghanistan,” Obama told the audience of several thousand people. “Yesterday, I visited with some of our men and women serving there — 7,000 miles fr om home. For mor e than 12 years, men and women like those I met
with have borne the burden of our nation’s security. Now, because of their profound sacrifice, because of the progress they have made, we’re at a pivotal moment.” “Our troops are coming home. By the end of this year, our war in Afghanistan will finally come to end,” the president said to applause. “And yester day at Bagram, and here today at Arlington, we pay tribute to the nearly 2,200 American patriots who’ve made the ultimate sacrifice in Afghanistan. We will honor them, always.” Obama has said it was likely that a small contingent of U.S. forces would stay behind for counterterrorism missions, as well as to train Afghan security forces. The president made a fleeting reference to the widening scandal involv-
ing reports of poor performance by the Department of Veterans Affairs, which is facing allegations of delayed tr eatments, and even deaths in Arizona. “As we’ve been reminded in recent days — we must do mor e to keep faith with our veterans and their families, and ensure they get the care and benefits and opportunities that they’ve earned and that they deserve,” said the president. “These Americans have done their duty,” Obama said. “They ask nothing more than that our country does ours — now and for decades to come,” he added, drawing mor e applause. Veterans Affairs Secretary Eric Shinseki, a retired Army general, was among those attending the ceremony. Lawmakers from both parties have

California’s flawed water system can’t track usage AP Photo
In this May 2 photo, farmworkers plant tomato sprouts in Yuba City, Calif.
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Call them the fortunate ones: Nearly 4,000 California companies, farms and others are allowed to use free water with little oversight when the state is so bone dry that deliveries to nearly everyone else have been severely slashed. Their special status dates back to claims made more than a century ago when water was plentiful. But in the third year of a drought that has ravaged California, these “senior rights holders” dominated by corporations and agricultural concerns are not obliged to conserve water. Nobody knows how much water they actually use, though it amounts to trillions of gallons each year, according to a review of their own reports by The Associated Press. Together, they hold more than half the rights to rivers and streams in Cal-
ifornia. The AP found the state’s system is based on selfreported, incomplete records riddled with errors and years out of date; some appear to be using far less water than records would indicate. “We really don’t know how much water they’ve actually diverted,” said Bob Rinker, a manager in the State Water Resources Control Board’s water rights division. With a burgeoning population and projections of heightened climate-related impacts on snowpack and other water supplies, the antiquated system blunts California’s ability to move water where it is most needed. When gold miners flocked to the West in the 1800s, the state drafted laws that rewarded those who first staked claims on the region’s abundant rivers and streams.
Today, Califor nia still relies on that honor system, even during drought. The system’s inequities are particularly evident in California’s arid Central Valley. “In a good year we wouldn’t be able to stand here unless we got wet. This year it won’t produce anything,” said secondgeneration rice farmer Al Montna as he knelt in the dust, pulling apart dirt clods on the 1,800 acres he left idle because of scarce water. About 35 miles north, fourth-generation rice far mer Josh Sheppard had more than enough water, thanks to his water district’s superior rights to Feather River water dating to the late 1800s. “No one thinks of it when there’s ample water and plenty to go around, but in these times of tightness it is a very contentious resource that
gets fought over,” Sheppard said, standing next to his flooded fields.
To find out how many entities hold these superior rights and how much water they use, the AP obtained the water board’s database for 2010 — the last complete year of water usage reports — and interviewed state officials and dozens of landowners. The state only collects the records every three years on a staggered basis, meaning its information is always out of date.
Tom Howard, the board’s executive director, acknowledged the state should get a better handle on water use. “Anything to improve the information we have would help,” he said, citing the need for annual reporting of usage and real time stream flow data.
String of legal wins bolsters same-sex marriage
WASHINGTON (AP) — One after another and in sometimes evocative language, judges appointed by Republican and Democratic presidents are declaring it’s too late to turn back on the topic of same-sex marriage. The unbroken string of state and federal court rulings in support of gay and lesbian unions takes in every region of the country, including states of the Confederacy, and brings to 26 states where same-sex couples can get married or a judge has ruled they ought to be allowed. It also may have pushed gay marriage to a legal tipping point, where the cause has won such wide-ranging approval that it will be hard for the Supreme Court to rule against it. The court rulings and the meas-
ured response of even elected officials who oppose same-sex marriage may be especially important for justices who have worried about acting too quickly to impose samesex marriage nationwide. The latest ruling, in Pennsylvania, was followed quickly by word from Republican Gov. Tom Corbett that he would not appeal and instead let the decision take effect. Corbett, who opposes gay and lesbian marriage, is facing a tough campaign for re-election this year. “We are a better people than what these laws represent, and it is time to discard them into the ash heap of history,” U.S. District Judge John E. Jones III wrote last week about the Pennsylvania marriage law.
Gay marriage opponents say they expect more of a mixed record in the courts by the time the Supreme Court gets involved, and they take issue with the notion that U.S. public opinion has shifted as dramatically as many polls show.
All the rulin gs came after the Supreme Court decision last June that struck down part of a federal anti-gay marriage law but did not apply to bans that wer e then in place in roughly three dozen states. Judges, though, have had no trouble extending the high court’s ruling in U.S. v. Windsor to prohibit states from discriminating against same-sex couples who want to wed.
try. There was a holiday weekend reunion of some of the last surviving members of the Tuskegee Air men in upstate New York. Mor e than 3,000 volunteers placed flags at the graves of 120,000 vet-
erans at the Florida National Cemetery. And in Mississippi, the annual Vicksburg Memorial Day parade was being accompanied by a wreath-laying ceremony at Vicksburg National Cemetery.
Medicaid surge triggers concerns WASHINGTON (AP) — From California to Rhode Island, states are confronting new concerns that their Medicaid costs will rise as a result of the federal health care law. That’s likely to revive the debate about how federal decisions can saddle states with unanticipated expenses. Before President Barack Obama’s law expanded Medicaid eligibility, millions of people who were already entitled to its safety-net coverage were not enrolled. Those same people are now signing up in unexpectedly high numbers, partly because of publicity about getting insured under the law. For states red or blue, the catch is that they must use more of their own money to cover this particular group. In California, Democratic Gov. Jerry Brown’s recent budget projected an additional $1.2 billion spending on Medi-Cal, the state’s version of Medicaid, due in part to surging numbers. State officials say about 300,000 more already-eligible Californians are expected to enroll than was estimated last fall. “Our policy goal is to get people covered, so in that sense it’s a success,” said state legislator Richard Pan, a Democrat who heads the California State Assembly’s health committee. “We are going to have to deal with

how to support the success.” Online exchanges that offer subsidized private insurance are just one part of the health care law’s push to expand coverage. The other part is Medicaid, and it has two components. First, the law allows states to expand Medicaid eligibility to people with incomes up to 138 percent of the federal poverty line, about $16,100 for an individual. Washington pays the entire cost for that group through 2016, gradually phasing down to a 90 percent share. About half the states have accepted the offer to expand coverage in this way. But whether or not a state expands Medicaid, all states are on the hook for a significantly bigger share of costs when it comes to people who were Medicaid-eligible under previous law. The federal government’s share for this group averages about 60 percent nationally. In California, it’s about a 50-50 split, so for each previously eligible resident who signs up, the state has to pony up half the cost. There could be many reasons why people didn’t sign up in the past. They may have simply been unaware. Some may not have needed coverage. Others see a social stigma attached to the program for those with the lowest incomes.

cent Asian and 13 percent Hispanic. The attention “Days of Futur e Past” dir ector Bryan Singer received due to a sexual assault lawsuit didn’t keep fans away from theaters this weekend. “We didn’t really anticipate that it would,” said Chris Aronson, president of domestic distribution for Fox. “It really shouldn’t have an impact on audiences and seeing this movie. The audience reactions on a global basis are extraordinarily high, the best of any of our ‘X-Men’ films.” Globally, “Days of Future Past” earned $282 million with $171 million of that total gained from the international sales in 119 countries, all of which had the “X-Men” film ranked No. 1. The projected worldwide box office cume of “Days of Future Past” through Monday is an astounding $302 million. Warner Bros. sci-fi monster smash “Godzilla” dr opped to No. 2, but landed solidly with $39.4 million from Thursday to Monday. The Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore-led comedy “Blended” held the third-place spot with an $18.2 million debut. It’s not a great start for the duo whose previous teamups included “The Wedding Singer” and “50 First Dates.” Both films grossed over $80 million domestically. “Neighbors” and “The Amazing Spider -Man 2” rounded out the top five

‘X-Men’ tops at the box office
LOS ANGELES (AP) — “X-Men: Days of Future Past” is projected to be the fifth-best Memorial Day holiday weekend debut in box office history over a four -day period, just behind “Fast & Furious 6” and above “The Hangover 2.” The seventh installment in the “X-Men” franchise ear ned $111 million, according to studio estimates on Monday. Fox updated its holiday weekend projection, taking it up slightly from $91 million to $91.4 million. 2006’s “X-Men: The Last Stand” is still the highest domestic opener of the series, gaining $123 million when it debuted over the Memorial holiday. “Days of Futur e Past,” starring a solid cast including Hugh Jackman, Jennifer Lawrence, Halle Berry, Michael Fassbender, James McA voy, Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, Peter Dinklage and Ellen Page, is now the second-highest “X-Men” debut. “We were hoping to get a $100 million in four days and we hoped to broaden the movie out to a more general audience, which has come to fruition from a gender standpoint, age standpoint and race standpoint,” said Spencer Klein, senior vice president general sales manager for Fox. The diverse domestic “XMen” audience was 56 percent male and 44 percent female. Racially, 53 percent of the audience was white, 20 per cent African-American, 14 per-

BLACKOUT TAKES THE MONEY KEVIN J. KELLER RECORD SPORTS EDITOR
Black Jackson and Fred McDonald both made multiple proclamations on Facebook that Blackout would win the Show Me The Money championship at the 19th annual Hike It & Spike It flag football tournament. On Sunday after noon, they made good on those proclamations. The duo led the Dallas-based squad to the Show Me The Money title for the second time in five years with a 32-7 win over defending champion Goose Crew in the title game. The first play of the championship game was a Blackout touchdown and the rout was on from there.
Ramonce Taylor hit McDonald on a go route down the sideline on the game’s first play to make it 6-0. After a turnover on downs by Goose Crew, Jackson hit Taylor for a touchdown on the fourth play of Blackout’s drive to make it 12-0. Goose Crew got their lone score on the next possession when Jorge Cascudo hit Jorge Pena to make it 12-7. Blackout sandwiched a pair of TDs around a Goose Crew turnover on downs on its next two drives. Jackson hit Dee Washington for the first of those two scores. Taylor scored the second off a lateral from George Thompson, helping Blackout take a 25-7 lead into halftime.
Out of the break, Goose Crew turned it over on downs when McDonald batted down a pass on third down to set up Blackout’s game-winning drive. Taylor took it down to the 1yard line off a Jackson pass and Washington put Blackout a PAT away from the title with a jumping grab in the end zone from Jackson to make it 31-7. On the PAT, Jackson flipped it to Will Cole just inside the pylon
to clinch the mercy-rule victory and set off a wild Blackout celebration. Blackout ran through the tournament undefeated, finishing 6-0 to claim the $10,000 first-place prize. They beat the Hounds 19-0 in the first round, Dream Team 3225 in the second round, Truth 39-12 in the championship quar-

Rangers top Twins 7-2
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — After a rough first two innings, Nick Tepesch settled down and cruised through another quality outing to help the Texas Rangers stay hot. Tepesch won his second consecutive start, Elvis Andrus and Chris Gimenez each had two RBIs, and the Rangers beat the Minnesota Twins 7-2 on Monday afternoon. Tepesch (2-0) gave up both his runs in the first two innings before lasting 6 2⁄3. He struck out four to win consecutive starts for the first time in his career. “That’s one of the things that made me successful
today, to be able to put the first two innings behind me,” Tepesch said. “Treat each inning as a new inning.” Alex Rios added two more hits and now has six straight multi-hit games. The Rangers have won three straight and five of six after a rough start to the season. “Early in the season everything didn’t go the way we wanted it to,” Andrus said. “At the same time, we still trust in each other and we knew there’s a lot of baseball left. Everyone is feeling well right now as a team.” Trevor Plouffe homered See RANGERS, Page B3

MIAMI (AP) — LeBron James had 32 points and 10 rebounds, Chris Bosh added 25 points and the Miami Heat moved one win away from a return trip to the NBA Finals with a 102-90 win over the Indiana Pacers on Monday night. Dwyane Wade scored 15 points for the Heat, who have won three of the first four games in the Eastern Conference finals. They can win the East for a fourth straight season with a win at Indiana on Wednesday night. Miami led wire-to-wire, opening up as much as a 23-point lead in the final quarter. Paul George scored 23 points and David West added 20 points and 12 rebounds for the Pacers, who got 15 points from George Hill. But Lance Stephenson was held to nine and Roy Hibbert was scoreless in 22 minutes for Indiana. The Pacers won two elimination games in the first round against Atlanta, and need to win three more if their yearlong plan of topping Miami as kings of the East is going to become reality. The odds are obviously stacked against them. See HEAT, Page B3

Thousands attend service for coach Don Meyer
ABERDEEN, S.D. (AP) — Thousands gathered on the campus of Northern State University in South Dakota on Saturday for a memorial service to honor longtime college basketball coach Don Meyer, whose friends said his legacy of compassion for others would surpass even his accomplishments on the court. Meyer, one of the winningest coaches in college basketball history, died Sunday of cancer at his home in Aberdeen, South Dakota. He was 69. He led his teams into the playoffs 19 times and compiled a 923-324 record during his 38-year career, most of which he spent at Lipscomb in Tennessee and at Northern State. The native of Wayne, Nebraska, overcame a near-fatal car accident in 2008 before closing out his career after the 2010 season at Northern State with a 13-14 record — only his fourth losing season. Mark Ovenden, a local sportscaster and friend of Meyer’s, opened the service. He, and everyone else who spoke, focused on Meyer’s role as a mentor to those around him. “Don was a great coach — we know that. His accomplishments have been well documented. But he was even better at the things that most of us didn’t notice in life: living the right way; doing things the right way,” Ovenden said. Meyer’s former players talked about how their coach had helped shape their lives when they were young and how he continued to do so, even as they got older and had children of their own. “What do we do now?” asked Brett Newton, who played for Meyer at Northern State for four years. “We live our lives as an example of what he was.” Craig Nelson, who played for Meyer from 2003-2008 at Northern State, said the thousands who came to honor Meyer were there because of more than just his coaching record. “I would argue a Division II basketball coach would not garner this type of celebration just for being a basketball coach,” he said. The public memorial service was held on the gym floor of the Barnett Center, where Northern State hosts its basketball games. A second service will be held June 1 at Lipscomb University in Nashville, Tennessee, where Meyer also coached.
College football Huskies offer football class for female fans
HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — UConn’s football program is offering a clinic to teach its female fans more about the game. The “Women’s Football 101 Clinic,” was proposed by head coach Bob Diaco and is scheduled for June 25 at the school’s training facility in Storrs. Spokesman Mike Enright said it is not intended to be condescending and will offer women a chance to learn everything from the basic fundamentals of the game to its finer intricacies. “It’s just meant to be a fun-filled thing,” Enright said. “We understand that many of these women may know more about the game than a lot of men. This is something that fans from those with virtually no knowledge of the game to a very intricate knowledge of the game can get something from.” The program includes a meet-and-greet with the coaching staff and a social hour with a cash bar. The participants also will take the field and do some light drills with the staff and players. Enright said it’s something other schools have done and UConn believes can help expand its fan base.

Stanford’s Wilson wins NCAA golf title
HUTCHINSON, Kan. (AP) — Stanford golfer Cameron Wilson kept his cool after he missed a big putt in the third round of the NCAA tournament. His positive attitude paid off in a big way. Wilson won the national title when he birdied the third hole of a playoff against Georgia Tech’s Ollie Schniederjans, helping Stanford to the top score in team qualifying on Monday. “I think he was maybe the most overlooked player here,” Cardinal coach Conrad Ray said. “He’s had a great year. He’s a ballstriker, and if you want to find a ball-striker’s paradise, it’s Prairie Dunes.” Wilson bogeyed the final hole of his round, leading to the playoff with Schniederjans. But he managed to focus on the bigger picture on the big day. “The sun was setting, the fescue looked green everywhere, there’s (American) flags everywhere and Ollie is a friend,” Wilson said. “I was just thinking it was all really cool.” Wilson’s winning birdie came at the par-5 17th. Stanford led team qualifying with a score of 13 under, securing the top seed for Tuesday morning’s match-play quarterfinals. Alabama and LSU tied for second at 4 under and were the only other teams to break par. Wilson began the day in first place at 6 under. He had a one stroke lead over teammate Patrick Rodgers, who was looking to break Tiger Woods’ school record for victories in a season. But Rodgers bogeyed three straight holes, starting at 12. The left-handed Wilson was steady in shooting an even-par 70. After a bogey at 3 and birdie at 5, he parred 10 straight holes. Wilson just missed on birdie putts on Nos. 11, 15 and 16, but he insisted he never grew frustrated. “I was a little unlucky,” he said, “but those are all tough holes so par is a good score.” Schniederjans pulled even with a birdie on 17. His third round featured six birdies, two bogeys and a double bogey. “It was a terrible double on 5 and then I three-putted 9,” he said. “But I just stayed focused on the next hole.” Wilson’s approach shot from 135 yards on No. 18 was short — “The rough grabbed by club,” he said — and he could not convert the par opportunity. Wilson and Schniederjans returned to No. 18 to start the playoff. Both reached the green in two, and Wilson had a birdie putt slide by the hole. Then on No. 10, it was Schniederjans’ turn to face a birdie putt for the victory. “It was just a tough putt to read, especially with the shadows,” Schniederjans said. “I hit it right where I wanted. Just a tough read.” On No. 17, Schniederjans pulled his drive into the tall native grass left of the fairway. “An awful lie,” he said. “I basically swung my 8-iron as hard as I could. I was very happy to hit it down the fairway.” Wilson’s third shot, a wedge from about 40 yards short of the steeply elevated green, was key. It took two skips and stopped 7 feet below the hole. “That’s a shot I like,” he said, “a shot I work on all the time.” And this time, he made the putt that secured the title. “I was a little nervous,” he said, “but more than anything I was really excited.”

Redskins promote Bruce Allen to president, GM
ASHBURN, Va. (AP) — Bruce Allen is now officially upgraded to president and general manager of the Washington Redskins. Previously, Allen held the GM title but was an executive vice president. In a press release issued by the team on Monday, owner Dan Snyder says “I think the world of Bruce Allen and giving him both titles is appropriate.” Allen was hired by the Redskins in December 2009, after spending time with the Buccaneers and Raiders in the NFL, as well as USFL clubs. Last week, Allen said in a letter to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid that the team’s nickname is “respectful” toward Native Americans. That followed half the U.S. Senate publicly urging NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell to change the club’s name, saying it is a racist slur.

It was the third appearance by Blackout in the title game in five years. They won the title in 2010 by beating Rage and finished second to the Penguins in 2012. Goose Crew, out of Miami, was in the championship game for the third time in four years. They won the title last year over OutKast and won the 2011 crown by beating Skin. Goose Crew reached the title game out of the consolation bracket after falling in their first game on Saturday. On Sunday, Goose Crew beat the Freaks 25-0, Dream Team 26-24, Heat 36-20, OutKast 36-7 and Wet N Dirty 27-25. Jacksonville, Fla.-based Wet N Dirty finished third. Defending runner-up OutKast was fourth, and Yikes and Heat tied for fifth. This year’s tournament attracted nearly 600 teams and approximately 4,000 players to Roswell, making it the largest in the event’s history. Record inter n Brian DeGruchy contributed to this report.

Hunter-Reay holds off Castroneves to win Indy 500
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — R yan Hunter-Reay peeked around Helio Castroneves, then reversed course and dipped inside for a daredevil pass and the lead in the Indianapolis 500. Castroneves charged back to the front, winning a drag race down the frontstretch at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. And then, in a stirring wheel-to-wheel battle between a pair of bright yellow cars, Hunter-Reay seized the lead once more Sunday as the drivers hurtled across the Yard of Bricks with a single, 2.5-mile lap remaining. With nobody in front of him, Hunter-Reay used the entire track to keep Castroneves in his rearview mirror. He nipped him at the line by less than half a car length, denying his Brazilian rival a chance at history Sunday and becoming the first American in eight years to win the Indy 500. “The Greatest Spectacle in Racing” had lived up to its nickname. “This race was ridiculously close and competitive,” Hunter -Reay said. “Just glad I picked the right time to go.” The finish was well worth the wait — to the fans who watched 150 laps of caution-free racing, to the drivers who bided their time unsure of when they should charge to the front and to HunterReay, who finally got to drink the celebratory milk in his seventh try. He beat Castroneves by just 0.060 seconds — only the 1992 race had a closer finish when Al Unser Jr. beat Scott Goodyear by 0.043 seconds. “I’m a proud American boy, that’s for sure,” Hunter-Reay said in Victory Lane before he was joined by his wife and son. “I’ve watched this race since I was sitting in diapers on the floor in front of the TV. My son did it today. He

and Eduardo Escobar had two hits and an RBI for the Twins, who have lost four in a row since climbing two games over .500 on May 21. After Kevin Correia (26) set down nine straight, Roughned Odor and Shin-Soo Choo lined back-to-back two-out singles in the fifth. Andrus followed with a double to the gap in left-center that scored both runners and broke a 2-all tie. “It’s two-out hits. That’s been the theme this season,” Correia said. “That one pitch or two pitches a game, you make that one pitch and it’s a world of difference.” Gimenez made it 6-2 with a two-run double down the line in left in the eighth off reliever Jared Burton and Texas was on its way to another win. “We just got off to a bad start,” Texas manager Ron Washington said. “I’m so happy that we’re finally putting it together as a group.” Minnesota had its opening day outfield back together for the first time since the first week of the

This is American tradition.” He was serenaded by chants of “USA! USA!” as he made his way around the post-race celebrations. He was joined by son Ryden, born shortly after Hunter-Reay’s 2012 IndyCar championship and wearing a miniature version of his father’s firesuit as his parents kissed the bricks. Castroneves, trying to become the fourth driver to win a fourth Indianapolis 500, settled for second. He needed several moments to compose himself, slumped in his car, head down and helmet on. The Brazilian said a caution with 10 laps to go broke his rhythm as
season. Josh Willingham and Oswaldo Arcia were activated from the disabled list after Sunday’s game and started alongside center-fielder Aaron Hicks. But the re-enforcements weren’t enough to overcome Tepesch, who didn’t allow a runner past second base after the second inning. Twins manager Ron Gardenhire knows it might take a few more atbats before Willingham and Arcia are able to help lift Minnesota’s struggling offense. “That can be a huge part of it, driving the baseball and let them get a few at-bats here,” Gardenhire said. “It takes a little time, a little different pitching up here than down there.” Tepesch dominated Triple-A Round Rock after getting demoted in spring training and has a 2.95 ERA in three big-league starts since being recalled May 14. “He’s shown these three starts what he’s capable of doing,” Washington said. “But you can’t hang your hat on a couple of outings. If he’s around here healthy, he’s going to get many outings. I just want him to be consistent.”
red flag came out so track workers could clean debris and repair a track wall. “It was a great fight,” he smiled. “I tell you what, I was having a great time. Unfortunately, second. It’s good, but second sucks, you know what I mean?” Marco Andretti finished third and Carlos Munoz was fourth as Andretti Autosport had three cars in the top four, as well as the winner. Kurt Busch, also in a Honda for Andretti, finished sixth in his first race of the day. He left immediately for a flight after the race and arrived about an hour later in North Carolina for Sunday night’s Coca-Cola 600, where his attempt

When holding a 3-1 lead, Miami is 8-0 in Game 5s over the past four postseasons. Much as he did Sunday, Indiana coach Frank Vogel used the big brother-little brother analogy with his team, trying any way to urge the Pacers to break through against the team that has ended their season in each of the past two years. “He’s got to make a decision at some point in his life, that no matter what, we’re not going to lose this fight anymore,” Vogel said, likening the Pacers to the little brother in that scenario. “We’re at that point.” The fight isn’t over. But it was awfully one-sided for long stretches of Game 4. “You can never get too high, you can never get too low in the postseason,” James said. “You’ve got to stay even-keeled. You got to try to get better every single day, every single game improve. “When you do that and you go out and play the type of game that you’re capable of playing, you can be satisfied with the results and that’s what we’ve built over the years.” Miami outscored Indiana 31-20 in the third quarter and increased the lead to 23 in the fourth before the Pacers used a 15-3 run to make things rather interesting. Stephenson had a layup with 3:20 left that would have gotten Indiana within nine — but it was waved off after he
to become the second driver to complete 1,100 miles in both races on the same day ended when his car blew an engine late. Busch ended up completing about 907 miles. “All in all, I’m very pleased. I cannot believe the execution of this team,” Busch said before hustling away for a helicopter ride to his waiting plane. “I tried to enjoy it. My throat’s real dry because I was smiling the whole time and the fresh air was coming in my mouth.” Marco Andretti appeared to have a shot at the win, but after the final restart he never could mix it up with Hunter-Reay and Castroneves as the two leaders
was called for fouling Wade on his way to the basket. Stephenson scored with 1:31 left to make it 99-90, but James snuffed out any comeback hopes right there. His three-point play nine seconds later pushed the lead back to 12, and the Heat were moments away from a 3-1 lead. Miami was without Chris Andersen, inactive because of a bruised left thigh. The Heat also tweaked their starting lineup, with Rashard Lewis in and Udonis Haslem out. “We have high-quality NBA professionals on our team that can sit all year and when their number is called they can come in and produce,” James said. Bosh scored the game’s first eight points, making a pair of 3-pointers and ending a series-long funk. He had scored exactly nine points in each of the first three games of these East finals and was held under 10 points in each of his last seven playoff games against Indiana. But he came out flying, and probably not coincidentally, the Heat finally had a good start. “I felt that was going to happen today,” James said. “I told him he (was) going to have a great game, and we got of f to a fast start because of him.” They won the first quarter for the first time in the series, going up 2719 and helped in part by a late 3pointer from Shane Battier — with replays showing Vogel moved down the sideline toward the Heat forward as he shot from near the Indiana bench.
swapped position four times in the final five laps. So certain his son would be a contender for the victory Sunday, Michael Andretti was just as thrilled with Hunter-Reay’s win. “Ryan’s just been a huge part of our team, a great guy, a friend,” said Michael Andretti, who won for the third time as a team owner. “He deserves it. He deserves to have his face on that trophy. If it couldn’t be Marco, he’s the next guy I wanted.” A year ago, Hunter -Reay was passed for the lead with three laps remaining and went on to finish third as the race finished under caution. He was leading Sunday and had control of the race until Townsend Bell’s crash brought out the red flag. Hunter-Reay figured he was a sitting duck as the leader, his chances over. “I can’t get a break,” he lamented on his team radio. But after swapping the lead with Castroneves three times, including a dramatic inside move in Turn 3, Hunter-Reay made the final and decisive pass as the two cars took the white flag. “At the end of the day there’s stupid and bravery, and I think we were right there on the edge, both of us,” Castroneves said. “I’m glad we both come out in a good way. I’m sad it did not come out the way I wanted.” The race went a record 150 laps without a caution as the pace zipped along and Busch at one point had no worries at all about getting to North Carolina in time for NASCAR’s longest event of the year. Then a Charlie Kimball spin brought out the first yellow, a crash by Scott Dixon led to a second caution and a risky threewide move on the next restart caused pole-sitter Ed Carpenter and James Hinchcliffe to wreck.
Nothing was to Indiana’s liking. Hibbert and Stephenson combined for zero points and six fouls in the half. The Heat didn’t have a turnover until the second quarter. Miami shot 10 more free throws in the half. Bosh and James combined for 32 points. And despite it all, the Pacers were down only 49-44 at halftime. After getting hand-checked eight times by Hill on a play late in the half, James went down the lane for a reverse dunk while getting fouled to put Miami up by 10. But the Pacers answered, a 3pointer by George just before the break getting them within five and sealing a half that could have been much worse. If there was any doubt, Miami erased it quickly after halftime. James scored five points in a 7-0 spurt to open the second half, and the Heat were on their way. NOTES: It was the 74th playoff game where James had at least 25 points, five rebounds and five assists, passing Michael Jordan for the most in NBA history. ... George passed Reggie Miller for the highest scoring single-season (including playoffs) by a player in Pacers history. Miller had 2,078 in 1989-90; George entered Game 4 with 2,077 points. ... Wednesday will be Indiana’s 100th game of the season. Only two other Pacers teams have logged that many; they played 105 in 1999-2000 and 100 last season.

Johnson gets first win of year in Coca-Cola 600
CONCORD, N.C. (AP) — About the only one not worried about Jimmie Johnson’s victory drought this season was the Sprint Cup defending champion. After his dominating show this weekend at Charlotte Motor Speedway, Johnson gave his competitors plenty to worry about. Johnson reached Victory Lane for the first time this season at the Coca-Cola 600, finishing off a dominating week at a track many have called “Jimmie’s House.” “It’s great to win, but believe me, and I promise you, all the hype and all the concer n and worry, that was elsewhere. That wasn’t in my head,” Johnson said. Now, Johnson can think about his record-breaking seventh Cup
win at Charlotte, about his 13th straight NASCAR season with a victory or about his fourth 600 victory to trail only Darrell Waltrip’s five in the series’ longest race. And maybe throw a scare into opponents that Johnson’s run at top isn’t over yet. “They know we are awake,” Johnson said. “Hopefully, the 48 is heading that way and we can give other people something to think about.” This time, Johnson swept past Matt Kenseth nine laps from the end and was never pressured after that. Johnson earned the pole Thursday night, was strong at practice Saturday and led 165 of 400 laps Sunday. Kevin Harvick, who led 100 laps, was second. Kenseth finished third with Carl Edwards
fourth. Jamie McMurray, the AllStar race winner last weekend at the track, was fifth. Kurt Busch’s attempt at motorsports history ended with 129 laps to go when he blew an engine. Busch finished sixth in the Indianapolis 500, but could not complete the 600 and become just the second racer ever — Tony Stewart was the first — to navigate all 1,100 miles on auto racing’s biggest weekend. Harvick had won two of the past three 600s and led 100 laps this time. He fell back in the latter stages as he dealt with car problems and could not get back to the front. “We needed a 700-mile race to get back to where we needed to be,” Harvick said. Brad Keselowski held the lead
Roswell Daily Record
and appeared to have out-pitted Johnson’s No. 48 group with a final stop 55 laps from the end. But a vibration in the Penske machine sent Keselowski back to the pits and a lap down. Much of the pre-race attention was centered on whether Busch or points leader Jef f Gordon would make it to the starting line. Busch because of his 850-mile trek South from Indiana and Gordon because of back spasms that cropped up Thursday after qualifying and were still severe enough Saturday for him to leave the track early after just a few laps of practice. But both were there when the green flag dropped, although Busch’s arrival was far more dramatic with the helicopter circling the track and landing on the
infield close to the start-finish line about an hour before the race began. Gordon maintained his points lead by 11 over second-place Kenseth. Danica Patrick had hopes of a strong showing after qualifying fourth, her best starting spot of the season. But like Busch, she too, was out early with a blown engine 119 laps from the end. She was 39th, her poorest finish in three 600s. Dale Earnhardt Jr. came into this one with seven top 10s in 11 races and the hope he could finally win a points race at his beloved home track. He led 13 laps late in the race before he had engine problems as well and faded from contention. He ended 19th.
MLB: Blue Jays win seventh straight behind Encarnacion
TORONTO (AP) — Edwin Encarnacion hit his 13th home run in May, Dioner Navarro and Steve Tolleson added back-to-back shots and the Toronto Blue Jays won their seventh straight game Monday, beating the Tampa Bay Rays 10-5. Melky Cabrera had three hits and three RBIs as the AL East-leading Blue Jays won for the 12th time in 14 games. Toronto has hit at least one home run in nine straight games and leads the majors with 73 this season, including an ML-best 41 in May. David DeJesus, Desmond Jennings and James Loney all hit solo homers for the Rays, whose season-high four-game winning streak was snapped. Drew Hutchison wasn’t at his best, but benefited from strong run support to win his career-best third straight start. Hutchison (4-3) allowed five runs and seven hits in five innings, matched a seasonworst with four walks and struck out none. Athletics 10, Tigers 0 OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Kyle Blanks homered in his home debut at the Coliseum and Derek Norris capped Oakland’s fivehomer day with a grand slam and the Athletics snapped a season-long four-game losing streak with a win over Detroit. Yoenis Cespedes, Brandon Moss and Josh Donaldson also homered. Tommy Milone (3-3) allowed four hits in 6 2⁄3 scoreless innings. He is 3-0 with a 1.03 ERA in his past four starts. The A’s got four solo homers against Drew Smyly (2-3) to win the first meeting of the season against the team that eliminated them in Game 5 of the division series the past two postseasons.
Astros 9, Royals 2 KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — George Springer homered in his fourth straight game and went 4 for 4 with three RBIs and scored five runs in Houston’s victory over Kansas City. The Astros have won three straight, matching their longest winning streak this season, and snapped a six-game losing streak to the Royals. Springer led off the eighth with a home run off Louis Coleman, his fifth homer in four games. He is the first Houston rookie to homer in four straight games. Lance Berkman was the last Astro to homer in four straight games, July 4-8, 2010. Springer also had two doubles and became the first Astro to score five runs in a game since Cody Ransom on Sept. 24, 2007, against St. Louis. Springer extended his hitting streak to eight games, and is 8 for 16 with 11 RBIs and 10 runs in the past five games. Scott Feldman (3-2) held the Royals to two runs and eight hits over six innings. Royals rookie starter Yordano Ventura was led off the field by a trainer in the third inning after experiencing discomfort in his elbow. The hard-throwing right-hander is scheduled for a MRI on Tuesday. Ventura (2-5) went 2 2⁄3 innings, allowing five runs and seven hits and three walks.
Mariners 5, Angels 1 SEATTLE (AP) — Chris Young pitched shutout ball until Albert Pujols homered in the seventh inning, Robinson Cano had three hits and two RBIs to raise his average to .332, and the Seattle Mariners beat the Los Angeles Angels. Young (4-2) kept the Angels hitless until Kole Calhoun singled with one out in the sixth. An inning later, Pujols hit his 506th career home run, pulling within three of Gary Sheffield for 24th on baseball’s all-time homer list. The Mariners scored five times in the first two innings off Tyler Skaggs (4-2). Three of the runs were unearned runs. White Sox 6, Indians 2 CHICAGO (AP) — Conor Gillaspie hit three doubles while going 4 for 4, Dayan Viciedo had a three-run homer and the Chicago White Sox beat Cleveland. Gillaspie scored twice and drove in a run. He became the first White Sox player with three doubles in a game since Paul Konerko on May 26, 2012, against the Indians. Viciedo connected in the third inning against Josh Tomlin (3-2). Jose Quintana (3-4) pitched six effective innings. Scott Downs got four outs for his first save.
NATIONAL LEAGUE Red Sox 8, Braves 6 ATLANTA (AP) — David Ortiz homered and drove in four runs as the Boston Red Sox ended their 10-game losing streak, rallying from a five-run deficit to defeat the Atlanta Braves Monday. The defending World Series champions trailed 6-1 after the fourth inning of the interleague matchup, with starter Clay Buch-
holz walking a career -high eight in only three-plus innings. But Ortiz tied it by hitting a three-run homer off Ervin Santana in the fifth. With Red Sox fans at Turner Field chanting “Papi! Papi!” the World Series MVP then gave Boston the lead with a bases-loaded sacrifice fly off Ian Thomas (1-2) in the seventh. Following pregame declarations of confidence from manager John Farrell and general manager Ben Cherington, the Red Sox came back to end their worst skid since an 11-game slide in 1994.
Dodgers 4, Reds 3 LOS ANGELES (AP) — Hyun-Jin Ryu took a perfect game into the eighth inning — one day after teammate Josh Beckett threw a nohitter — and Los Angeles held on to beat Cincinnati. The Reds hit only three balls out of the infield before Todd Frazier’s leadoff double in the eighth. That followed a three-run seventh by the Dodgers in which Ryu ran the bases and scored. The left-hander from South Korea came close to making the Dodgers the first team in major league history with consecutive no-hitters. Beckett won 6-0 in Philadelphia on Sunday. Los Angeles pitchers tossed a club-record 17 straight hitless innings dating to Saturday, when Paul Maholm got it started against the Phillies. Cincinnati scored three times in the eighth, but right fielder Yasiel Puig made a key defensive play when he cut off Billy Hamilton’s two-run double in the gap. The relay home held Skip Schumaker at third, and Kenley Jansen struck out Brandon Phillips with the bases loaded to preserve a 4-3 lead. Jansen also worked the ninth, retiring Devin Mesoraco with two on for his 15th save. Ryu (5-2) was charged with three runs and three hits in 7 1⁄3 innings, improving to 6-0 in six starts against the Reds. He struck out seven and walked none while winning for the first time at Dodger Stadium this season. Johnny Cueto (4-4) allowed four hits and four runs — one earned — in 6 1⁄3 innings. Yankees 6, Cardinals 4, 12 inn. ST. LOUIS (AP) — Brian Roberts hit a tiebreaking single in a three-run 12th inning after Brett Gardner’s leaping catch at the left-field fence kept New York alive in the 11th. Pinch-hitter Alfonso Soriano and Brendan Ryan each added an RBI for the Yankees, who took the opener of a three-game interleague series for their third straight win. Alfredo Aceves (1-2) worked two scoreless innings and David Robertson earned his 11th save in 12 chances. Jon Jay had an RBI double in the 12th for the Cardinals, who lost for the third time in 12 games. A standing-room crowd of 47,311, the
third-largest at 9-year-old Busch Stadium, showed up to see an opponent making only its second appearance in St. Louis since losing to the Cardinals in the 1964 World Series. Cardinals pitchers retired 20 of 21 batters before the 12th, when Randy Choate (0-2) faced five batters and four reached safely.
Cubs 8, Giants 4 SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Jeff Samardzija struck out a season-high 10 for his first win since last August, snapping a 16-start winless streak for Chicago. Samardzija (1-4) allowed six hits and walked none in seven-plus innings. He also had an RBI double during a three-run fourth. The right-hander entered with six no-decisions in his first 10 outings this year despite leading the majors with a 1.46 ERA. Nate Schierholtz hit his first home run of the season, and Darwin Barney drove in two runs to help the Cubs come back from a 3-1 deficit. Pablo Sandoval homered and drove in three runs for the Giants, who had won four in a row. Yusmeiro Petit (3-2) gave up four runs and six hits in five innings while filling in for injured starter Matt Cain.
Pirates 5, Mets 3 NEW YORK (AP) — Gaby Sanchez tagged the Mets again, hitting a tiebreaking single in the ninth inning and a pinch-hit homer in the eighth that sparked Pittsburgh’s comefrom-behind victory. The Mets announced after the game that they had fired hitting coach Dave Hudgens. They also cut reliever Jose Valverde, who gave up Sanchez’s go-ahead hit. Sanchez upped his average against the Mets to .324 and has 34 RBIs against New York, his best totals against any NL team. He homered off Scott Rice while hitting for Ike Davis, who was making his return to Citi Field after being traded to the Pirates in midApril. Valverde (1-1) was booed off the field after allowing pinch-hitter Jose Tabata’s tying single in the eighth. Valverde returned for the ninth and was even worse. Tony Watson (5-0) pitched an inning for the win. Mark Melancon got his 10th save.
Marlins 3, Nationals 2 WASHINGTON (AP) — Giancarlo Stanton hit his NL-leading 15th home run and also doubled and singled in his latest power performance for Miami at Nationals Park. Stanton doubled and scored in the first inning, then launched a long two-run homer in the third. Stanton is hitting .333 (43 for 129) with 14 home runs and 27 RBIs in Washington since his career began in 2010. He has homered at Nationals Park more than any other visiting player during that time. The Marlins improved to 7-17 on the road;
they’re 20-8 at home. Nathan Eovaldi (4-2) pitched 6 1⁄3 innings, giving up two runs and three hits. Steve Cishek worked the ninth for his 11th save. Adam LaRoche homered for the Nationals, who had won 12 of their last 13 against Miami at home. Tanner Roark (3-3) went seven innings.
Phillies 9, Rockies 0 PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Ryan Howard had five RBIs and Kyle Kendrick pitched into the seventh inning to snap his 10-game losing streak for Philadelphia. A day after Dodgers right-hander Josh Beckett threw a no-hitter against the Phillies, leadoff man Ben Revere started with a single for the first of Philadelphia’s 12 hits. Kendrick (1-5) allowed six hits over 6 2⁄3 innings to earn his first win since last Aug. 6, a span of 16 winless starts. His best performance in a while came against the top offense in the majors. The Rockies are first in runs (262) and batting average (.291). Jhoulys Chacin (0-4) gave up four runs and seven hits in five-plus innings. He has lost five straight decisions dating to last season.
Orioles 7, Brewers 6, 10 inn. MILWAUKEE (AP) — Jonathan Schoop hit two home runs and newly acquired Nick Hundley singled in the go-ahead run in the 10th inning to lift Baltimore to victory in the interleague contest. Down 6-4 with two outs in the ninth, the Orioles rallied off Milwaukee closer Francisco Rodriguez. Schoop’s second homer cut it to one. After pinch-hitter Delmon Young singled, Nick Markakis hit a game-tying double. With two outs in the 10th, J.J. Hardy doubled off Rob Wooten (1-2) and scored on Hundley’s single. Darren O’Day (2-0) pitched a scoreless inning of relief to get the win. Zach Britton pitched out of trouble in the 10th, to record his third save in three opportunities.
Diamondbacks 7, Padres 5 PHOENIX (AP) — A.J. Pollock hit a two-run homer on the first pitch he saw with two outs in the ninth inning to give Arizona a victory over San Diego. Cliff Pennington was hit by a pitch and pinch-hitter Eric Chavez hit into a fielder’s choice ahead of Pollock’s shot to center off Kevin Quackenbush (0-1). Yonder Alonso homered and Everth Cabrera launched a three-run shot off starter Brandon McCarthy in the fifth to give the Padres a 4-2 lead. Brad Ziegler (1-1) pitched two scoreless innings for the win.
Golf capsules: Scott captures win at Colonial FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — Adam Scott made a 7-foot birdie putt on the third hole of a playoff Sunday to end his first week as the world’s No. 1 player with a victory at Colonial. Jason Dufner, who made a 25-foot birdie putt on No. 18 in regulation, slid a 40-footer past when he and Scott played the 18th hole for the second time during the playoff. Scott then made the 7footer for his 11th PGA Tour victory. The major champions parred No. 18 to start the playoff, then matched birdies at the 17th hole. Dufner, who won the PGA Championship last year, hit his approach pin high on 17 to 4½ feet, but 2013 Masters champ Scott drained a 14-foot birdie before Dufner putted. Dufner and Scott both shot 4-under 66 to finish at 9 under, the highest winning score at Colonial since 1999. Scott replaced the injured Tiger Woods at the top of the ranking last Monday and will stay No. 1. Scott had to be in the top 13 at Colonial after
Henrik Stenson finished in a five-way tie for seventh place in the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth. The win at Hogan’s Alley, which comes with $1,152,000 and a plaid jacket, made Scott the first player to win all four PGA Tour events in Texas. He is the 15th to win both the Byron Nelson Championship (2008) and the Colonial in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. Nicholas Thompson and Freddie Jacobson tied for third at 8 under. Thompson shot 66, a stroke better than Jacobson.
Airbus LPGA Classic MOBILE, Ala. (AP) — Jessica Korda won the Airbus LPGA Classic for her second victory of the year, birdieing four of the last five holes to break out of a tight pack. Korda made a breaking 15foot birdie putt on the par-4 18th for a 7-under 65 and a one-stroke victory over Anna Nordqvist. Also the winner in the season-opening event in the Bahamas, Korda played the back nine in 6-under 30 to finish at 20-under 268 on
The Crossings course. Nordqvist also birdied the 18th and finished with a 69. Michelle Wie, 18-year -old Charley Hull and 44-year-old Catriona Matthew tied for third at 18 under. Wie and Hull shot 67, and Matthew had a 69. Second-ranked Stacy Lewis had a 71 to tie for 10th at 15 under. She needed a solo third or higher to take the top spot in the world from Inbee Park.
BMW PGA Championship VIRGINIA WATER, England (AP) — Rory McIlroy won the BMW PGA Championship, overcoming a seven-stroke deficit with a 6-under 66 for his first victory of the year. McIlroy had only one victory — in the Australian Open in December — in 18 months. He finished at 14-under 274 at Wentworth for a one-stroke victory over Ireland’s Shane Lowry (68). England’s Luke Donald (70) and Denmark’s Thomas Bjorn (75) tied for third at 12 under. Bjorn took a five-stroke lead into the round.
McIlroy won four days after the 25-year -old Norther n Irishman confir med the breakdown in his relationship with Danish tennis star Caroline Wozniacki.
Senior PGA Championship BENTON HARBOR, Mich. (AP) — Colin Montgomerie won the Senior PGA Championship, finishing with a 6under 65 for a four-stroke victory over 64-year -old Tom Watson. It marked Montgomerie’s first victory as senior, his first win in seven years and his first in an official event in the United States. He also claimed a senior major in his fifth attempt, something he didn’t accomplish in 71 majors in his regular tour days. The 51-year -old Scot finished at 13-under 261 at Harbor Shores. The victory was his first since he took the 2007 European Open for his 31st European Tour title. Watson also closed with a 65.

DEAR ABBY UNIVERSAL PRESS SYNDICATE
DEAR ABBY: I’m a 32-year-old woman who is HIV-positive. My colleague — who is unaware of my status — recently introduced me to a relative of hers who is also lonely and looking for someone to settle down with. We “clicked” and seem to complement each other in every way, although we haven’t had any sexual encounter. My fear is, how do I disclose my status without being rejected? He seems to have big plans for us, which include settling down and having kids in the future. I am also worried that he might be angry with
my colleague and not believe that she is unaware of my status. Please help me get out of this dilemma. IN A SPOT IN SOUTH AFRICA
DEAR IN A SPOT: I’ll try, but there are no guarantees. Much depends upon the strength of this man’s feelings for you. It is very important that you have a frank discussion with him before the relationship goes any further. The fact that you are HIV-positive may be problematic, but it does not mean you cannot have a family together if you wish in the future. Medications and other medical interventions can help keep the virus from being transmitted to your children, and condoms can protect your partner. If you are upfront about your status, the chances are better that he will believe you when you tell him his relative was not aware that you have HIV when you were introduced. In a case like this, honesty is the best policy. #####
DEAR ABBY: I have three grown sons, all educated, married and successful. Their wives are the daughters I never had, and I treasure them and their children. I’m blessed with three perfect grandchildren under the age of 5. The pr oblem is my sons. Although I raised them carefully with love, they are like teenagers. They constantly denigrate and fight with each other, and measure my time with them on a competitive scale. I no longer want to be involved with their bickering. Their dad, from whom I am separated, is not involved. This has created a sad cloud in my otherwise sunny life. I need some advice. TIED IN KNOTS IN INDIANAPOLIS DEAR TIED IN KNOTS: Have you told your sons how uncomfortable their sibling quibbling makes you? If you haven’t, you should. And if that doesn’t improve the situation, I suggest
you see them separately. And if that causes pr oblems, please don’t make it YOUR problem. #####
DEAR ABBY: Over the past 10 years or so, I have noticed a vast increase in people who talk while they are yawning. These “yawn-talkers” are not only rude, but also almost impossible to understand. I wouldn’t normally care, except that a lot of people do it where I work. Is it OK to tell them to stop yawn-talking? Or would I be the rude one in the scenario? WIDE AWAKE IN PENNSYLVANIA
DEAR WIDE AWAKE: It wouldn’t be rude to ask someone to repeat the statement because you wer e unable to understand what the person was trying to say. And, by the way, polite folks cover their mouths when they yawn to avoid spraying saliva on the person in front of them.

Dear Readers: How often does your cellphone ring, but you don’t recognize the number? Does it ring once but hang up before you answer? Before you call the number back, know that you could be the next victim of the one-ring CELLPHONE SCAM, according to the Federal Trade Commission. This scam counts on your curiosity, expecting you to call back the number to find out who called. As soon as you call the number, you are put on hold and charged international phone rates and by-minute rates. So, resist the urge to call back or even answer an unfamiliar number.

For Better or For Worse
Dear Heloise: When painting a room with a roller, often you want to do a second coat, and that means waiting a good 12 hours or until the next day. Rather than cleaning the roller, we roll it out well, then wrap it in plastic wrap and put it into the freezer. The next day, we take it out to thaw and repaint the wall. We’ve never had a problem, because it works really well. Sally B. in Washington Dear Heloise: After numerous moves in our younger days, my husband and I developed a hint that really helps when moving from one home to another. I always had one large box that I labeled “Open Me First — Kitchen.” In it, I had the coffee maker, coffee, creamer, granola bars, paper plates, drink cups, a roll of paper towels, a set of sheets for the bed, towels for the bathroom, toilet paper and toiletries. I even put sleepwear and a change of clothes in the box, so no matter how late we finished moving in, we could shower and get a good night’s sleep. We can then have coffee and a light breakfast before we start on all the other unpacking the next day. Jude E. in Texas Dear Heloise: When sewing, I put one of the advertising magnets that come on the front of phone books under the ar m of my sewing machine, with the magnet side up, to the right of the needle and footplate. When you take out the pins as you sew, just put them on the magnet, and they will stay put until you can place them back in a box. Saves you from finding them on the floor with your bare feet! If you are working with one of the newer machines, be sure the magnet won’t interfere with the computers. Sharon B. in Pennsylvania Dear Heloise: If you are having trouble filling a double-sided medicine pillbox, you can use a large bag clip. With the lids fully open on both sides, slide the clip over the two rows of lids. After the pillboxes have been filled, remove the clip and close the lids. Ralph M. in Ohio
