Notes to Obama, mayor had gun threats

WASHINGTON (AP) — A suspicious letter mailed to the White House was similar to two threatening, poison-laced letters on the gun law debate sent to New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, one of the nation’s most potent guncontrol advocates, officials said Thursday. The Secret Service said the letter was addressed to President Barack Obama and was intercepted by a White House mail screening facility. Two similar letters postmarked in Louisiana and sent to Bloomberg in New York and his gun control group in Washington contained traces of the deadly poison ricin. It wasn’t immediately clear whether the letter sent to Obama contained ricin. It was turned over to the FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force for testing and inves-


tigation. The two Bloomberg letters, opened Friday in New York and Sunday in Washington, contained an oily pinkish-orange substance. New York Police Department Commissioner Raymond Kelly said Thursday that all three letters apparently came from the same machine or computer and may be identical but referred specific questions to the FBI. The FBI said in a statement that field tests on the letters were consistent with the presence of a biological agent, and the letters were turned over to an accredited laboratory for the kind of thorough analysis that is needed to verify a tentative finding. “More See THREATS, Page A3

East Country Club Road, from Main Street to Grand Avenue, was closed for about 40 minutes on Thursday morning. A gas tanker stopped in a parking lot before pulling onto Country Club when the driver of a green Dodge Durango attempted to pass on the right. The New Mexico State Police were called in to check for any leakage in the tanker. After the tank passed inspection, the vehicles were released and the road open to traffic. No one was injured during the accident.

T h e R os well P olice Dep ar t m en t arrested a Utah man, Wednesday, on charges of kidnapping. Ahmad Jones, 33, was staying at the Belmont Hotel, 2100 West Second Street, having come to Roswell to visit a former girlfriend. The 25-year -old victim told officials that she had recently moved to town. She went to the hotel to see Jones. The visit went well at first, but then reportedly Jones became enraged. When the victim tried to leave the hotel room, Jones slammed the door shut and blocked her exit. He allegedly pulled a knife and pointed it at her. Later he put the knife away, grabbed her and threw her on the bed. He then reportedly began to beat her. She managed to escape and contacted the police department. Jones was arrested and charged with kidnapping, assault on a household member with intent to commit a violent felony and battery. Jones was taken to the Chaves County Detention Center where he remains on a $50,000 surety bond.

SANTA FE (AP) — A former campaign manager for New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez was indicted Thursday on federal charges of hacking the campaign’s email system and obtaining correspondence by the governor, her staff and supporters. U.S. Attorney Kenneth Gonzales announced the indictments in Albuquerque against Jamie Estrada of Los

Lunas, who briefly served as campaign manager in 2009 but was fired by Martinez as she was starting her bid for governor. Estrada said in a statement that he broke no laws and disputed Martinez’s assertions that he was fired. “Individuals in whom the public has placed its trust have come after me in an attempt to divert attention from their own improper

actions,” Estrada said, pointing to allegations by the governor’s critics of possible influence peddling in a state decision on a lease for a horse racing track and casino in Albuquerque.

Jay McCleskey, the governor’s political adviser, said Estrada was fired “for numerous reasons, includ-

Syria’s Assad ‘confident in victory’ in civil war BEIRUT (AP) — Syrian President Bashar Assad said in an interview broadcast Thursday that he is “confident in victory” in his country’s civil war, and he warned that Damascus would retaliate for any future Israeli airstrike on his territory.

Assad also told the Lebanese TV station Al-Manar that Russia has

fulfilled some of its weapons contracts recently, but he was vague on whether this included advanced S300 air defense systems. The comments were in line with a forceful and confident message the regime has been sending in recent days, even as the international community attempts to launch a peace

conference in Geneva, possibly next month. The strong tone coincided with recent military victories in battles with armed rebels trying to topple him. The interview was broadcast as Syria’s main political opposition group appeared to fall into growing disarray. The international community had hoped the two sides would start talks on a political transition. However, the opposition group, the Syrian National Coalition, said earlier Thursday that it would not attend a conference, linking the decision to a regime offensive on the western Syrian town of Qusair and claiming that hundreds of wounded people were trapped there. Assad, who appeared animated and gestured frequently in the TV interview, said he has been confident from the start of the conflict more than two years ago that he would be able to defeat his opponents. “Regarding my confidence about victory, had we not had this confidence, we wouldn’t have been able to fight in this battle for two years, facing an international attack,” he

said. Assad portrayed the battle to unseat him as a “world war against Syria and the resistance” — a reference to the Lebanese Hezbollah, a close ally. “We are confident and sure about victory, and I confirm that Syria will stay as it was,” he said, “but even more than before, in supporting resistance fighters in all the Arab world.” Assad has said he would stay in power at least until elections scheduled in 2014, but he went further in the interview, saying he “will not hesitate to run again” if the Syrian people want him to do so. Taking a tough line, he also warned that Syria would strike back hard against any future Israeli airstrike. Earlier this month, Israel had struck near Damascus, targeting suspected shipments of advanced weapons purportedly intended for Hezbollah. Syria did not respond at the time. Assad said he has informed other countries that Syria would respond next time. “If we are going to retaliSee SYRIA, Page A3

Group fails in bid to recall Ariz. sheriff A2 Friday, May 31, 2013


PHOENIX (AP) — A campaign to force a recall election against the polarizing sheriff of metropolitan Phoenix failed on Thursday after recall organizers said they couldn’t collect enough voter signatures to bring the lawman to the ballot again. Organizers of the recall effort against Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio needed to tur n in more than 335,000 valid voter signatures by 5 p.m. Thursday to force a recall election. “It is a sad day,” said recall campaign manager Lilia Alvarez. “It is a disappointment.” Recall organizers won’t reveal the number of signatures they gathered. That said, the last update they gave on their numbers five weeks ago was that they gathered 200,000 signatures. “The count at this point doesn’t matter,” Alvarez said in deciding not to reveal the number of signatures gathered. Arpaio issued a statement suggesting that recall organizers aren’t revealing the number of signatures they gathered because they are embarrassed by the level of their failure. “This effort failed because the good people of Maricopa County, whom I’m honored to serve, rejected the wrong-headed idea of overturning an election,” Arpaio said. Arpaio supporters say the sheriff won re-election in November fair and square and that recall organizers shouldn’t have been allowed to contest the election simply because they didn’t like the outcome. The recall ef fort began just weeks after the 80-year -old

Republican sheriff started his sixth ter m in January. His November re-election race marked the second closest contest in his 20-year political career. He beat the closest candidate by 6 percentage points. Joshua Spivak, a recall expert and senior fellow at Wagner College in New York, said the Arpaio recall effort suffered from too little fundraising, having to collect an unusually high number of voter signatures for a county race and not having an alternative candidate lined up to run against Arpaio. “They are running against Joe Arpaio,” Spivak said. “But who are they electing?” Arpaio critics had argued that the sherif f should be booted because his office has failed to adequately investigate more than 400 sex-crimes cases, has cost the county $25 million in legal settlements over treatment in county jails and his office was found by a federal judge to have systematically racially profiled Latinos in his signature immigration patrols. Critics say the sheriff is more focused on getting publicity for himself than protecting the people. Recall organizers had hoped that last week’s racial profiling ruling would pump new life into their cause. Supporters were camped outside a county building for more than four days in their final push. “I wish from the bottom of my heart that this ruling would have come out a month earlier. Had this ruling come out a month earlier, who knows how many signatures we would have gotten,”

In this Jan. 9 file photo, Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio speaks with the media in Phoenix.

Democratic state Rep. Martin Quezada of Avondale, a supporter of the Arpaio recall effort, said.

In the hours before the recall petitions were due, a trickle of people dropped by three tents set up by recall organizers outside the county building to sign petitions. Clipboard-wielding volunteers hit up people walking on the sidewalk for signatures and wore T -shirts that said, “Petition Posse,” a play on Arpaio’s posses

whose volunteer members assist sheriff’s deputies in some of their duties.

In the past, the sherif f has apologized for the bungled sexcrimes investigations and said his office has moved to clear up the cases and taken steps to prevent a repeat of the problem. He also has vigorously denied allegations that his deputies racially profiled people in traffic patrols targeting immigrants who aren’t authorized

to be in the country.

Recall organizers were trying to build on the success of a 2011 recall effort that ousted then-Arizona Senate President Russell Pearce, an Arpaio ally who was the driving force behind the state’s contentious 2010 immigration law. But the scale of the Arpaio recall was more daunting. Only 7,700 valid signatures were needed to trigger the Pearce recall election.

letters may be received,” the statement said, without elaboration. The body of the letter mailed to New York was addressed to “you” and referenced the gun control debate. Kelly said the unsigned letter says, in so many words: “Anyone who comes for my guns will be shot in the face.” He refused to quote directly from the letter, saying he didn’t want to do the author’s bidding. Bloomberg has emerged as one of the country’s most important gun-control advocates, able to press his case with both his public position and his private money. The New York letter was opened at the city’s mail facility in Manhattan in a biochemical containment box, which is a part of the screening process for mayor’s office mail. “In terms of the processes and procedures that are in place now we think they worked,” Kelly said. “This is sort of an effect of the post9/11 world that we live in that these checks and facilities are in place and the system worked.” The second letter was opened Sunday by Mark

Glaze, director of Mayors Against Illegal Guns, the Washington-based nonprofit Bloomberg started. The letter Glaze opened tested positive for ricin initially. The other letter to Bloomberg at first tested negative but tested positive at a retest Wednesday. The postal workers union, citing information it got in a Postal Service briefing, said the letters bore a Shreveport, La., postmark. Kelly would not comment on the origin of the letter. Louisiana State Police spokeswoman Julie Lewis said state authorities have deferred to the FBI and have not opened an investigation. The Shreveport postal center handles mail from Louisiana, Texas and Arkansas, so the letter could have come from any of those states, Lewis said. The people who initially came into contact with the letters showed no symptoms of exposure to the poison, but three officers who later examined the New York letter experienced minor symptoms that have since abated, police said. The mayor visited the mailroom on Thursday but made no public comments on the topic. On Wednesday, he said he didn’t know why they were sent. One of the letters “obvi-

ing improperly accessing Susana Martinez’s personal emails in 2009.” The governor’s office had asked last year for a federal investigation of possible hacking after a union-funded political action committee released several emails that showed the governor and top aides used private email addresses to discuss government business. The disclosures led the GOP governor, who had touted her commitment to government transparency, to order state workers to end the practice of using nongovernment email accounts. Martinez said in a statement that the indictment “vindicates what I have been saying for almost a full year — that the personal and political emails of dozens of people, including my own, were hijacked, stolen, and never received by the intended recipients.” Prosecutors alleged that Estrada used password and username information to change the computer account for the governor’s 2010 campaign organization after Martinez took office as governor in 2011. As a result, when Martinez and her aides sent electronic messages through the campaign email system, the emails were directed to a computer account controlled by Estrada, according to the indictment. Email was leaked to Martinez critics such as the union-funded group, Independent Source PAC, which publicly released some of the correspondence and called for authorities to investigate the Martinez administration’s handling of the racetrack lease deal in 2011. The administration maintains there was no preferential treatment in awarding a 25-year lease that allows a horse racing track to build a larger casino at the state fairgrounds in Albuquerque.

ate against Israel, this retaliation should be a strategic response,” he said. Russia’s S-300 missiles would significantly boost Syria’s air defenses and are seen as a game-changer, but Assad was unclear whether Syria has received a first shipment. Earlier Thursday, AlManar had sent text messages to reporters with what it said was an excerpt from the interview. The station quoted Assad as saying Syria had received a first shipment of such missiles. The Associated Press called Al-Manar after receiving the text message, and an official at the station said the message had been sent based on Assad’s comments. In the interview, Assad was asked about the S-300s, but his answer was general. He said Russia’s weapons shipments are not linked to the Syrian conflict. “We have been negotiating with them about different types of weapons for years, and Russia is committed to Syria to


ously referred to our antigun ef forts, but there’s 12,000 people that are going to get killed this year with guns and 19,000 that are going to commit suicide with guns, and we’re not going to walk away from those ef forts,” said Bloomberg, adding that he didn’t feel threatened. According to the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, ricin is a poison found naturally in castor beans. Symptoms can include dif ficulty breathing, vomiting and redness on the skin depending on how the affected person comes into contact with the poison. The letters were the latest in a string of toxinlaced missives, but authorities would not say whether the letters to Bloomberg and Obama were believed to be linked to any other recent case. In Washington state, a 37-year -old was charged last week with threatening to kill a federal judge in a letter that contained ricin. About a month earlier, letters containing the substance were addressed to Obama, a U.S. senator and a Mississippi judge. One of the letters postmarked in Memphis, Tenn., was traced back to Tupelo, Miss., and a Mississippi man was arrested.

“Even in the world of politics, issues should be the subject of tough and vigorous debates but there are clear lines that should not be crossed and committing federal felony crimes to invade the personal privacy of political opponents is one of them,” Martinez said. Estrada was indicted on a dozen counts of illegally intercepting electronic communication and two counts of making false statements to authorities during their investigation. Each charge is a felony with a maximum penalty of five years in prison and a $250,000 fine. Estrada, in the statement issued through attorney Zachary Ives, said, “I have every faith that not only will I be found innocent, but also that this attack on me will result in exposure of the true wrongdoers, once and for all.” Estrada was a delegate to the Republican National Convention in 2012, and ran unsuccessfully in 2010 for the GOP nomination for a state utility regulatory agency. He worked in the U.S. Commerce Department from 2005 to 2009 during former President George W. Bush’s administration. In a statement announcing the indictment, Gonzales said that “it is of paramount importance that we protect electronic information from being diverted, stolen or otherwise misappropriated” when so much personal and professional information is sent through email. The U.S. Attorney’s Office said Estrada’s arraignment has not been scheduled yet. Independent Source PAC’s executive director, Michael Corwin, has maintained the group received the emails from a source who assured him the messages were obtained legally. Corwin later gave the emails to Democratic Attorney General Gary King, who released them to the news media in response to public records requests. Some of the emails showed music purchases by the governor and bank records of a Martinez staffer.

implement these contracts,” he said. “All we have agreed on with Russia will be implemented and some of it has been implemented recently, and we and the Russians continue to implement these contracts,” he said. Earlier this week, Defense Minister Moshe Yaalon said Israel considered the S-300s in Syrian hands a threat and signaled it was prepared to use force to stop delivery. Israel had no comment Thursday. The S-300s have a range of up to 200 kilometers (125 miles) and can track and strike multiple targets at once. Syria already possesses Russian-made air defenses. The U.S. and Israel had urged Russia to cancel the sale, but Russia rejected the appeals. U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry told Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov this week that the U.S. is concerned about Moscow’s continued financial and military support for the Assad regime, said State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki. Meanwhile, Assad dis-

missed Syria’s political opposition as foreign-directed exiles who don’t represent the people of Syria. The Syrian National Coalition has been meeting for more than a week in Istanbul to expand its membership, elect new leaders and devise a strategy for possible peace talks. Coalition members got bogged down in personnel issues for much of the time. On Thursday, they announced that under current circumstances, they will not attend peace talks. In the interview, Assad reiterated that the Syrian government is ready to attend in principle, though he said any agreement reached there would have to be put to a referendum. “We will go to this conference as the legitimate representatives of the Syrian people. Whom do they represent?” he said of the opposition. “We know that we are going to negotiate with the countries that stand behind it (the opposition) and not to negotiate with them. When we speak with the slave, we are indirectly negotiating with the master,” he added.

What mud slinging says about the perpetrator

SANTA FE — Recently we talked about negative GOP campaigning directed against two Democrats, one not even an announced candidate yet. We also mentioned that the announced Democratic candidate, Hector Balderas for attorney general, doesn't even have a Republican opponent yet. It is a woeful commentary on the American political system that negative campaigning now starts first. Sometimes the GOP isn't able to fill out a slate for statewide offices. This year, I'm guessing it will. With all the money that is being made available by court decisions, it is enough to attract candidates into every race. So the movement to find some GOP candidates is beginning to take shape. Much of this information comes from a Joe Monahan blog of two weeks ago. The only definite Republican candidates for next year's elections appear to be the incum-




bents: Rep Steve Pearce in the 2nd Congressional District; Gov. Susana Martinez; Lt. Gov. John Sanchez and Secretary of State Dianna Duran. Very likely the GOP will field a candidate in the 3rd Congressional District but with little to no hope of winning. Likewise, Democrats will field a candidate against Rep. Pearce with slim hopes, although Democrats are on the increase in that district. Excitement could break out in the lieutenant governor's race. John Sanchez has never been in the Martinez camp of the Republican Party. Past governors and

lieutenant governors seldom have fared well. Full time lieutenant governors really just get in the way. The position never was meant to be full time. But Sanchez is making the most of what he has to deal with, traveling the state as an unofficial ombudsman, while forging political alliances everywhere. There has been talk of the governor cutting him lose and backing another candidate in next year's primary. Back in 1994, Diane Denish talked of taking on Lt. Gov. Casey Luna, who had been giving Gov. Bruce King much grief. Luna tur ned the tables by running against King in the primary and perhaps ruining King's chances for another term. Too many minefields are in the path of switching lieutenant governors. Besides, as we've said, they just get in the way. U.S. Sen. Tom Udall will draw opposition, maybe Allan Weh? He has been very active since his

Roswell Daily Record

2010 GOP primary loss to Susana Martinez. Udall has been hard to beat so there may not be many seeking to knock him off. The GOP will put up a good battle for the 1st congressional district slot won by Michelle Lujan Grisham last November. Republicans have held the seat much longer than Democrats. So far Simon Kubiac, an Albuquerque businessman is the only name we have heard mentioned. Republicans always make a strong bid for attorney general. Clovis District Attor ney Matt Chandler made a good bid in 2010 and is expected to get back into the race this time. He is close to Susana Martinez and may see significant backing from her. The state treasurer's of fice seems to be an enticing position for Democrats this year. On the Republican side, state Taxation and Revenue director Demesia Padilla is getting the most mention. She ran for the office before.

She could be stronger this time because of support of Gov. Martinez. If Padilla were to win, she would be the third statewide office holder who is female, Hispanic and Republican. Secretary of State Dianna also is in the group. U.S. Rep. Michelle Lujan Grisham is a Democrat but she also adds to the female Hispanic power in the state. The state Land Office is very important to ranchers and oil and gas interests. Democrat incumbent Ray Powell has won three non-consecutive ter ms and always is a strong vote gatherer but Republicans have often won the seat and will have big financial backing in this election. The GOP is looking at current Public Regulation Commissioner Patrick Lyons return to the Land Of fice spot he has held twice before. House Republican Whip Nate Gentry also is a possibility.

Robotic warfare raises old issues

The United Nations’ recent report in regard to “killer robots” is an intriguing concept in incongruity. First of all, establishing rules for warfare is an exercise in futility and is much like asking feuding gang members to play nicely when the gunfire begins. Earlier this month the United Nations issued a report from its Human Rights Commission, authored by Christof Heyns, that dealt with legal and philosophical issues involved in giving robots lethal powers over humans. As cited in an Associated Press story, the report’s author calls for a worldwide moratorium on the “testing, production, assembly, transfer, acquisition, deployment and use” of killer robots until an international conference can develop rules for their use.

His findings are due to be debated at the Human Rights Council in Geneva on May 29.

According to the report, the United States, Britain, Israel, South Korea and Japan have developed various types of fully or semi-autonomous weapons, which are installed on unmanned aircraft.

In making a distinction from traditional drones, the author states that drones do have human oversight. The killer robots are programmed to make autonomous decisions on the spot without orders from humans.

Heyns’ report notes the increasing use of drones, which “enable those who control lethal force not to be physically present when it is deployed, but rather to activate it while sitting behind computers in faraway places, and stay out of the line of fire.”

It’s interesting that this discussion is being presented in light of a new generation of weapons, the ilk of which was only imagined in old science-fiction movies.

The AP story, in fact, notes that the debate dates back to author Isaac Asimov’s first rule for robots in his 1942 story “Runaround:” “A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm.”

Other, more recent films come to mind as well, including “2001: A Space Odyssey,” where HAL, the computer, attempts to destroy the crew in order to salvage the mission.

Remembering veterans, living and gone

I recently read a great story about the oldest living American veteran. And then it made me think about my brother Wieland, who gave his life in Vietnam. Last Friday, Fox News reported that Richard Arvine Overton, a World War II Army veteran, would be commemorating his 107th Memorial Day from the front porch of his Texas home, which he built after coming home from World War II. Overton was born May 11, 1906, the same year as the big San Francisco earthquake. He will shortly become a supercentenarian — someone




who is 110 or older, an achievement that only an estimated 200-350 people in the entire world have obtained. He married twice over nearly 12 decades on earth but never had any children. But if you think sitting on his porch is all Overton does to bide his time, consider that

Overton just traveled to Washington to see the National World War II Memorial. (His trip was provided by Honor Flight Network, a nonprofit organization that gives veterans free trips to memorials erected in their honor.) He served in the South Pacific from 1942 through 1945, with time also spent in Hawaii, Guam, Palau and Iwo Jima. Regarding his recent trip to Washington, Overton told Fox News: “At my age and my strength, I’m able to stand up and do anything. My mind is good, so I’m able to do what I want.” He added, “I got good health, and I don’t take any

medicine.” So what’s Overton’s century-plus longevity secret? I doubt that it’s his dozen-aday cigar habit or the splash of whiskey in his morning coffee. He credits his old age to taking daily aspirin and keeping his stress low. And he keeps his body moving. He said: “I also stay busy around the yards. I trim trees, help with the horses. The driveways get dirty, so I clean them. I do something to keep myself moving. I don’t watch television.”

See NORRIS, Page A5

If only rules and moratoriums could prevent what is known as “collateral damage” — where humans can be indiscriminately maimed and killed — which we seem to shrug off as a cost of war.

Even as we’ve reached beyond our imagination of sophisticated weapons, we fail to think outside the box to resolve age-old conflicts.

The New Bern Sun Journal

DEAR DOCTOR K: I’ve been taking Prilosec for years to prevent heartburn. My wife doesn’t think it’s safe to take any drug for that long. What do you think? DEAR READER: I’ve said it before, but I think it bears repeating: No drug is 100 percent safe. That doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t take one if you need it. But you should continually weigh the risks and benefits. Prilosec is a proton pump inhibitor (PPI), a drug that reduces stomach acid. We need stomach acid to help digest food, but in excess or in the wrong place, it’s a menace. It can inflame and irritate the esophagus, causing heartburn. (Recurring heartburn is called gastroesophageal reflux disease, or GERD.) It can also contribute to ulcers in the stomach and small intestine. PPIs are the most commonly prescribed drugs for acid reflux and heartburn. PPIs include lansoprazole (Prevacid), omeprazole (Prilosec) and esomeprazole (Nexium).


Like you, people often take PPIs every day for years. This makes sense if you have a chronic problem with stomach acid, but the occasional case of mild heartburn does not need to be treated with a PPI. For that kind of spot duty, antacid medicines such as Tums, Rolaids and Maalox will likely do the trick. They directly counteract acid in your stomach. So will drugs like cimetidine (Tagamet), famotidine (Pepcid) and ranitidine (Zantac). Like the PPIs, these drugs cause your stomach to make

less acid, but they work faster than PPIs. You can also tackle your heartburn with changes that don’t involve taking anything. Eat smaller meals and cut back on alcohol. If you’re heavy, lose weight. Raising the head of your bed should also help. As a long-term PPI user, you should also consider the possible drug interactions and side effects of PPIs. They may decrease the effectiveness of clopidogrel (Plavix, others), a medication that helps prevent artery-clogging blood clots. (This is controversial, and irrelevant if you’re not taking clopidogrel.) In addition, people taking PPIs seem to be more likely to get pneumonia than those who aren’t. Why would a medicine that reduces stomach acid make you vulnerable to pneumonia — a lung infection usually caused by bacteria? Because some cases of pneumonia come from regurgitating stomach contents up into the throat and having some of these contents drop

down into the lungs. Since acid kills bacteria, stomach contents that are low in acid are more likely to contain bacteria. Stomach acid also helps you absorb calcium in your diet. Theoretically, that might mean that long-term use of PPIs would make you vulnerable to thin bones (osteopenia or osteoporosis). However, the evidence for that is weak. Experts do not recommend, for example, that people taking long-term PPIs get bone density tests, or take calcium pills. Even if you have a prescription for a PPI, you and your doctor should review the reasons for it periodically to make sure they’re still valid. If you do need that prescription — and many people do — it should be for the lowest effective dose. (Dr. Komaroff is a physician and professor at Harvard Medical School.

Google to add Galapagos Islands to Street View

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Few have explored the remote volcanic islands of the Galapagos archipelago, an otherworldly landscape inhabited by the world’s largest tortoises and other fantastical creatures that inspired Charles Darwin’s theory of evolution. Soon it will take only the click of a mouse or finger swipe on a tablet to explore some of the Galapagos Islands’ most remote areas, surrounding waters and unique creatures. Google sent hikers to the Galapagos with Street View gear called “trekkers,” 42-pound (19-kilogram) computer backpacks with large, soccer ball-like cameras mounted on a tower. Each orb has 15 cameras inside it that have captured panoramic views of some of the most inaccessible places on the Galapagos. Crews from The Catlin Seaview Survey worked with Google to capture 360-degree views of selected underwater areas too. “We spent 10 days there hiking over trails ... and even down the crater of an active volcano,” Raleigh Seamster, the project’s leader for Google Maps said. “And these are islands, so half of the life there is under the water surface. So (we brought) Street View underwater to swim with sea lions, sharks and other marine animals.” Google is processing the footage and is trying to stitch it together. It hopes to post it to Street View later this year. The cameras captured the nesting sites of blue-footed boobies, the red-throated “magnificent frigatebirds,” swimming hammerhead sharks and, of course, the island’s giant tortoises. Scientists working with Google are exploring the footage for other species and hope to update the pictures regularly throughout the years as they study the effects of invasive species, tourism and climate change on the island’s ecosystems.

Beyond these things, Overton maintains his spiritual health by faithfully going to church every week. Austin Mayor Lee Leffingwell told Fox News in a statement: “I’ve spoken with Mr. Overton on a few different occasions, and admire his spirit for life and his country. He is truly one of our unsung heroes and we are privileged that he calls Austin his home.” I join Leffingwell and millions of other Americans each Memorial Day in saluting all of America’s heroes. And I know Overton joins us in particularly giving thanks for the freedom fighters who sacrificed everything for our country, including my dear brother Wieland, who paid the ultimate price June 3, 1970. My father fought in World War II at the Battle of the Bulge. I served four years in the Air Force in South Korea, and my brother Aaron served in the Army there, too. And our brother, Wieland, was killed in action in Vietnam when he walked point alone and drew out enemy fire so that others in his platoon could fight their way out to freedom. Many souls were saved on that day because of my brother’s bravery. (My mom wrote a chapter on each of us and, for the first time, told Wieland’s war story at length in her autobiography, “Acts of Kindness: My Story,” available only at Here are the numbers of those who sacrificed their lives in major wars since the Revolution: —Revolutionary War: 4,435. —War of 1812: 2,260. —Mexican War: 13,283. —Civil War: 525,000. —Spanish-American War: 2,446. —World War I: 116,516. —World War II: 405,399. —Korean War: 36,574.

Then, down through the years, he had to say goodbye to a host of others. Overton said this past week: “I know I had someone from my platoon until recently, but he passed, so now I don’t have anyone that I know. So I feel lonesome by myself sometimes. I would love to ask some of them some questions, but nobody is here. Everybody’s passed.” Though I understand Overton’s sentiments about his fallen comrades, not a single veteran should ever feel alone, because they all should be surrounded always by those who admire them. On behalf of millions of Americans, my wife, Gena, and I salute Richard Overton and all of America’s veterans, pray for those active in service and humbly bow in thanks for our fallen military heroes, who gave their lives so that we might live ours. Please mark your calendars on Sept. 12 and participate in Freedom Day USA, when businesses across the country will show their appreciation for U.S. service members by providing free goods and services to them and their immediate families.

Poll: 2 in 5 women would consider parenting solo Roswell Daily Record

As Christy Everson was nearing age 40, she made a decision: She wanted to have a child, even though she was single and it meant doing it all alone. Her daughter, conceived via a sperm donor, is now 2 1/2 years old, and Everson hopes to have a second child. “Was it worthwhile? Well, I’m thinking of doing it again, aren’t I?” she says. Everson and women like her are part of a shift in American society. An Associated Press-WE tv poll of people under 50 found that more than 2 in 5 unmarried women without children — or 42 percent — would consider having a child on their own without a partner, including more than a third, or 37 percent, who would consider adopting solo. The poll, which addressed a broad range of issues on America’s changing family structures, dovetails with a recent report by the U.S. Census Bureau that single motherhood is on the rise: It found that of 4.1 million women who’d given birth in 2011, 36 percent were unmarried at the time of the survey, an increase from 31 percent in 2005. And among mothers 20-24, the percentage was 62 percent, or six in 10 mothers. The AP-WE tv poll also found that few Americans think the growing variety of family arrangements is bad for society. However, many have some qualms about single mothers, with some two-thirds — or 64 percent — saying single women having children without a partner is a bad thing for society. More men — 68 percent — felt that way, compared to 59 percent of women. The survey found broad gender gaps in opinion on many issues related to how and when to have children. One example: At a time when the can-you-have-it-all

debate rages for working mothers, women were more apt than men to say having children has negatively impacted their career. And this was true especially among mothers who waited until age 30 or older to have children. Fully 47 percent of those mothers said having a child had a negative impact on their careers. Of women overall, 32 percent of mothers reported a negative effect, compared with 10 percent of men. For Everson, who lives in a suburb of Minneapolis and is now 44, being the only parent means daily responsibilities that naturally suck up some of the time she used to spend on her career as a financial consultant. “To be honest about it, it’s hard to be a rock star” when parenting a baby, she says. But she sees it as more of a temporary career setback, and feels she’s already getting back on track with her toddler now over age 2. Soon, she says, “I’ll be getting back on my A-game.” For Joyce Chen, a hospital occupational therapist in San Francisco, it’s a question of what kind of career she wants to have. Chen, 41 and also a single mother, is happy to have work that she not only enjoys, but that she can balance easily with caring for her 10-year -old daughter. “I’ve been blessed,” she says. “I have a decent income. I don’t feel like I need to climb the ladder. I enjoy what I do, but I can leave it at the end of the day and not think about it.” Chen also credits a strong community of friends from church for helping make her family work. “That community has helped me raise my daughter,” she says. She hopes to get married one day if the right situation comes along. But Chen feels that a sin-

Friday, May 31, 2013

gle mom can do just as good a job of raising a child as two parents can. Overall, the poll found decidedly mixed results on that question: Thirty percent of respondents said yes, 27 percent said no, and 43 percent said “it depends.” At 26, Jacqueline Encinias is at a much less established point in her career. A married mother of a month-old baby in Albuquerque, N.M., she aims to go back to school to study accounting. For now, though, she says she’s “just looking for something to get me by.” Encinias says that she would probably not have made the choice to be a mother alone. “I wouldn’t want my child to grow up with just one parent,” she says. “If other people want to do it, it’s OK, but it’s not for me.” Support of a partner is crucial to her, she says. (Finding the right person to parent with was a key factor in the decision to have a child, the poll found, cited by both current parents and non-parents.) Shermeka Austin, a 23year-old student in Warren, Mich., feels the same way. “That would not be a choice for me, being a single parent,” Austin says. She hopes to get married and have children one day, but first, she says, she wants to focus on her goal of opening her own bakery. Once she achieves that, she’d be happy to make sacrifices in order to have kids. In the poll, about threequarters (76 percent) of women without children said that it was important for them to reach certain career goals before they start a family. While 42 percent of unmarried women said they would consider single parenthood, compared with 24 percent of men, answers varied greatly as to the ways they’d consider going about it. Thirty-seven percent of

women said they’d consider adopting solo (compared to 19 percent of men), about a third of women — 31 percent — said they’d consider freezing their eggs, and 27 percent would be willing to use artificial insemination and donor sperm. Stacey Ehlinder, a 28year -old event planner in Denver, says she would consider some of those options at some point if necessary — though she’s currently in a relationship headed towards marriage. She says she’s surprised by the high percentage of poll respondents who had doubts about single mothers. “It just seems like these days there are so many more definitions of a family,” she says. Ehlinder is confident that if she does have children, she’ll be able to balance career and motherhood. “In my industry, and in companies I’ve worked for, I’ve seen

flexibility given to mothers,” she says. “It makes me feel confident that I could juggle things and be the mother I want to be.” Many respondents, in interviews, said that while the optimal situation for raising kids is two parents, there’s no prescription for the perfect family. Matthew Dean, a father of three in San Antonio, Texas, said he was glad that his wife, a former teacher, is able to stay home with their kids, an arrangement that was originally supposed to be temporary. “It was first, let’s do it through kindergarten, then it was, let’s do it through second grade...” he quips. Ultimately they decided it was best for the children. “I look around and realize how everything would have been so chaotic and rushed, otherwise,” Dean says. Still, he says, he under-

stands that many different arrangements work, including single-parent families. “It’s maybe not preferred, but it is what it is,” says Dean, 46. “It’s an added challenge, but that doesn’t mean it’s bad. There’s no guarantee in any situation. People can have a two-parent situation that is a complete wreck.” The poll was conducted in conjunction with WE tv ahead of the launch of the show “Pregnant and Dating,” which looks at the dating lives of women on the verge of becoming single mothers. It was conducted May 15-23, 2013 using KnowledgePanel, GfK’s probability-based online panel. It involved online interviews with 1,277 people age 18-49, including interviews with 298 women who have children or are currently pregnant with their first child and have never been married.

OXON HILL, Md. (AP) — Arvind Mahankali has conquered his nemesis, the German language, to win the Scripps National Spelling Bee on Thursday night, winning at last after third-place finishes in 2011 and 2012. The 13-year -old from Bayside Hills, N.Y., correctly spelled “knaidel,” a small mass of leavened dough, to win the 86th version of the competition. The bee tested brain power, composure and, for the first time, knowledge of vocabulary. Arvind will take home $30,000 in cash and prizes along with a huge, cupshaped trophy. He finished third in 2011 and 2012, eliminated both times on German-derived words. This year, he got two German words in the finals and nailed them both, including the winning word. The eleven finalists advanced from a field of 281 contenders based on a combination of a performance onstage and their performance on a computerized spelling and vocabulary test. Runnerup was 13-year-

old Pranav Shivashankar of Olathe, Kan., who stumbled and was eliminated on the word “cyanophycean,” a blue-green alga. Sriram Hathwar, of Painted Post, N.Y., finished third and Amber Born, 14, of Marblehead, Mass., finished fourth. The finish capped an arduous week of competition that began with curiosity and angst over a new vocabulary test but finished in a familiar way in Thursday’s final, with bright kids spelling difficult words under the bright lights of prime-time television. Over the course of more than two hours, the final inched toward a conclusion with 11 finalists being eliminated one by one. The 11 were the last survivors from a field of 281 contenders who arrived to compete for the title of champion speller of the English language. At stake were $30,000 in cash and prizes and a huge, cup-shaped trophy. The competition tests brain power, composure and, for the first time, knowledge of vocabulary.

Fourteen-year-old Grace Remmer of St. Augustine, Fla., got the final rounded launched by spelling “greffier,” which means an official recorder or keeper of records. But she later stumbled while attempting to spell “melocoton,” a word meaning a peach grafted on a quince root stalk. “Thank you, everyone,” she said, leaving the stage to a standing ovation. Finalists included several spelling bee veterans, but as the night wore on they were down to four contestants after more than 2 hours of competition. The win by Arvind continued the recent tradition of Indian-American winners. There have been five in a row and 10 of 14, a run that began in 1999 when Nupur Lala captured the title in 1999 and was later featured in the documentary “Spellbound.” This was the first year that a computerized vocabulary test helped determine the finalists. The 11 finalists were culled from 42 semifinalists Thursday afternoon, with spellers advancing based on a for mula that com-

bined their scores from a computerized spelling and vocabulary test with their performance in two onstage rounds. The show-stealer during the semifinals was Born, 14, who has wanted to be a comedy writer ever since she saw the pilot to “Seinfeld.” The bee’s growing popularity is reflected in an ESPN broadcast that gets more sophisticated each year, so Amber got to watch herself featured on a televised promo that also aired on the jumbo screen inside the auditorium. She then approached the microphone and, referring to herself, deadpanned: “She seemed nice.” The crowd laughed and applauded. Amber turned serious once she heard her word — “pediculicide” — but she spelled it correctly and did a little hop as she headed back to her seat. In the next round, Amber asked pronouncer Jacques Bailly: “Please give me something I know.” Given the word “malacophilous” and told it means “adapted to pollination by snails,” she replied: “I don’t know if that’s possible.”

CHICAGO (AP) — A judge raised the specter of the Boston Marathon on Thursday as he sentenced a young Lebanese immigrant to 23 years in prison for placing a backpack he believed contained a powerful bomb along a bustling city street near the Chicago Cubs’ baseball stadium. Everyone at Sami Samir Hassoun’s sentencing in a crowded courtroom in Chicago could not help but think of the bombs that went off a month ago concealed in backpacks on the East Coast, killing three people and wounding hundreds more, U.S. District Judge Robert Gettleman said. “Let’s give the elephant in the room a name: It’s called the Boston Marathon,” he said. “What would have happened had (Hassoun’s) bomb been real would have made Boston look like a minor incident.” Earlier, prosecutor Joel Hammerman held up the ominous-looking but harmless device fashioned from a paint can that Hassoun put in a trash bin near Wrigley Field, placing it in

front of the judge. Hassoun was told by undercover FBI agents, the prosecutor said, that it would destroy half the city block and kill dozens of people. Minutes before the sentence was announced, Hassoun, a 25-year -old onetime Chicago baker and candy-store worker, apologized for what he’d done in a five-minute statement. Crying, he asked the judge if he could address his family and friends, and then turned to look at them on a nearby bench. “I am sorry for the actions that I made and the shame I brought on you,” Hassoun said, struggling to keep his composure. “I promise I will become a better person ... and make it up to you.” His mother sobbed aloud and when Hassoun finished, she said in an audible voice to her son, “I love you!”

AP Interview: Nigeria sees outside extremist help

ABUJA, Nigeria (AP) — Islamic extremists who control portions of northeast Nigeria received antiaircraft guns and other military-grade weaponry from outside sources, the nation’s top defense spokesman said Thursday, as soldiers continue to battle militants across the arid, restive region. Brig. Gen. Chris Olukolade said Nigeria’s military has regained ground across the northeast since President Goodluck Jonathan announced emergency rule for three states there, allowing soldiers to arrest anyone at will and occupy any building. However, there has not been any independent confirmation of any of the military’s claims, as security forces shut down the region’s mobile phone network and travel to the rural regions under assault remains impossible. As the fighting continues, insurgents and civilians continue to flee. But the brigadier general remains convinced that this deployment will work as others failed to stop a bloody insurgency that has killed more than 1,600 people since it began in 2010. “Recently, you will (have heard) one of their leaders making a call to their colleagues or whatever you call them from dif ferent countries to come to their help. And surprisingly, he

also claims they are winning,” Olukolade said in an interview with The Associated Press about the militants. “If they were winning, why are they looking for help?” The military push in northeaster n Adamawa, Bor no and Yobe states largely has been fought outside of the public eye since Jonathan’s order declaring a state of emergency in the region May 14. While jet fighters and heavy tanks have been seen traveling through major cities, the military says much of the fighting has focused on a forest reserve and the far reaches of Nigeria’s borderlands with Cameroon, Chad and Niger. In declaring the emergency, Jonathan offered a frank appraisal of the fight facing Africa’s most populous nation, acknowledging that extremists had taken over villages and small towns in the region and raised their own flags, supplanting the control of Nigeria’s weak central government. Olukolade declined to offer specifics about how many of Nigeria’s some 76,000 soldiers, sailors and airmen were involved in the operation. He previously told the BBC that the military carried out airstrikes against some suspected extremist camps, something he later declined to discuss. He said Thursday

that the military had suffered “minimal casualties,” while declining to offer any specific figures. “We have not recorded civilian casualties to the best of our knowledge,” Olukolade said. That comes after human rights groups and locals said the military purposefully killed at least 187 civilians during a recent raid on a fishing village in the northeast. The military has denied the claim, despite a Human Rights Watch report with satellite footage showing serious damage had been done to the town. The threat has also become more severe. Authorities have said that in recent weeks extremist fighters, including those belonging to the loose extremist network known as Boko Haram, have been using increasingly sophisticated weapons, including truck-mounted anti-aircraft guns. Olukolade showed AP journalists a photograph Thursday of a shell he said soldiers collected from a battlefield in the northeast. The shell appeared to be about the diameter of a soda can and bore no manufacturer stamps. “They’ve graduated from the usual trend of insurgents to go around with small arms,” he said. “This time, they go out with very sophisticated and high-caliber weapons. ... So many of them are not indigenous

to this area.” Olukolade added: “The issue of outside help cannot be completely ruled out. It is evident.” He did not say who was arming the extremists, though diplomats and analysts say Boko Haram has loose ties to two other al-Qaidaaligned groups in Africa. Suspected Boko Haram fighters also were seen in northern Mali after Islamic extremists took control of towns there. Meanwhile,

weapons used during the Libyan civil war likely also have entered greater West Africa. As the fighting continues, it remains difficult for journalists to reach the regions affected. Military checkpoints exist on major highways and roads, limiting access. Human rights activists also have had difficulty reaching out to those living in the region. Olukolade said anyone was welcome to see what

the military had done, though he offered a large caveat for those wanting to travel in a region beset by insurgency and guerrilla attacks.

“As much as there is freedom of movement in Nigeria, as much as we have nothing to hide, we however only take responsibility for those people who offer to be guided by our security agencies,” he said.

AP Exclusive: Art Deadly attack stokes Chile Mapuche conflict owned by TS Eliot’s wife on sale LONDON (AP) — It’s the collection that “Cats” built. A multimillion-dollar trove of works by artists including J.M.W. Turner, Francis Bacon, Lucian Freud and Winston Churchill that were owned by poet T.S. Eliot’s widow will be sold in London later this year, Christie’s auction house announced Friday. Valerie Eliot, who died in November aged 86, bought the artworks with royalties from the hit Andrew Lloyd Webber musical “Cats,” which was based on her husband’s volume of light verse “Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats.” The musical proved more lucrative than Eliot’s poetry, and allowed his widow to assemble a collection of British art valued at more than 5 million pounds ($7.6 million) in the London home she had shared with her husband. Orlando Rock, deputy chairman of Christie’s Europe, said Valerie Eliot bought art as “a celebration of the best of British” and a tribute to her U.S.born husband, who had become a beloved British poet by the time he died in 1965. “It was done on very domestic scale,” Rock said. “It all fitted into the flat they lived in ... and became almost a shrine to everything T.S. Eliot had achieved.” The collection includes drawings and watercolors by 18th- and 19th-century British artists such as Turner, Thomas Gainsborough and John Constable, whose landscape “Helmingham Dell, Suffolk” is valued by Christie’s at between 300,000 and 500,000 pounds. Eliot’s rich trove of 20th-century art includes valuable works by sculptors Henry Moore and Barbara Hepworth and painters Bacon, Freud, David Hockney and L.S. Lowry, a popular chronicler of working-class urban life. Lowry’s seaside painting “Deal Sands” is on sale with an estimate of 150,000 pounds to 200,000 pounds. There’s also a self-portrait by Stanley Spencer, which the artist sold at a village fair in the 1950s for 1 pound, now valued at between 200,000 pounds and 300,000 pounds. “The Cathedral, Hackwood Park,” a tree-lined landscape by World War II-era Prime Minister Churchill, is expected to fetch between 200,000 pounds and 300,000 pounds. The sale also includes a collection of portrait miniatures from the 16th through the 19th centuries, and pieces of jewelry and furniture. Valerie met T.S. Eliot at London publisher Faber & Faber, where the Nobel literature laureate was a director and she a star-struck secretary who had been a fan of his work since her teenage years. They married in 1957. After the poet’s death, Valerie spent almost four decades as guardian of his literary legacy. In keeping with his wishes, she refused to cooperate with would-be biographers. But she welcomed the unlikely idea of a stage musical based on “Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats,” which became a global sensation. Proceeds from the Christie’s sale will go to Old Possum’s Practical Trust, an arts charity Valerie Eliot set up with some of the money from “Cats.” The works will go under the hammer Nov. 20 in London. Highlights are on view at Christie’s New York from Saturday until Tuesday, and in London from June 28 to July 2.

VILCUN, Chile (AP) — The hooded men approached the ranch by night, scattering pamphlets about the death of a Mapuche Indian activist shot in the back by a policeman. The property belonged to an elderly couple who had lived most of their lives on this wild land surrounded by soaring mountains and rich, primeval forests. For the trespassers, the couple were only the latest in a long line of enemies usurping their ancestral territory. When the men tried to break in, Werner Luchsinger, 75, shot one of the trespassers in the neck. His wife, Vivian Mackay, 69, desperately telephoned her son for help, as the attackers torched the house. The couple died in the flames. That deadly arson was a breaking point in some of the most violent months in recent memory in southern Chile’s Araucania region. Over the past five years, reported acts of violence from the Mapuche struggle have escalated 10 times over, prompting a police response that the indigenous group says has been heavy-handed and abusive. Now, after decades trying to appease Mapuche demands, Chile’s government finds itself at an impasse over how to ease tensions. In the last three years, it has returned 10,000 hectare (25,000 acres) to the Mapuche and encouraged timber companies and other landowners to allow people to till small plots. Yet the violence has only grown as the Mapuche demand the return of some 400,000 hectares (1 million acres) — about the size of Rhode Island. “The Luchsinger’s killings marked a before and after,” Andres Chadwick, Chile’s minister of the interior and security, told The Associated Press. “The Mapuche feel oppressed and worried that they’ll all be called terrorists. And the non-Mapuche says, ‘I’m next. They’re going to torch my house.”’ All sides, from the Mapuche to the landowners to timber companies, have lamented the escalating conflict, with many pointing to police overreaction and Mapuche extremists as responsible for most of the destruction. “We’re the ones paying a high price for

something that the state failed to solve in time,” said Jorge Andres Luchsinger, who reached his parents’ house just 10 minutes after his mother’s call. “My parents have already been murdered.” “Before the murder, there were many other attacks but no one gets caught. So I don’t know what part of the system is failing, but its failure is evident.” In addition to more land, the Mapuche have called for the expulsion of timber companies they say damage the environment by planting millions of invasive pines and eucalyptus trees to supply European and U.S. markets. They also want an apology from the Chilean government for its alleged mistreatment of the Mapuche, as well as autonomous rule similar to that in the

Catalonian region of Spain. “We’re not trying to kick anybody out,” said Aucan Huilcaman, a Mapuche leader. “We’re not asking for more roads or more seeds. We’re asking for our own government because this is our land. It’s not anti-Chilean, it’s proMapuche.” President Sebastian Pinera has responded to the tensions by invoking an anti-terrorism law dating back to Gen. Augusto Pinochet’s dictatorship, which lets suspects be held in isolation without charges and permits the use of phone taps and secret witnesses in investigations. Pinera also deployed hundreds of police agents to the region to guard land at risk of militant Mapuche attack.

Billy Joel surprises New York high school

NEW YORK (AP) — Billy Joel was back in high school. The singer surprised an assembly full of students at the Frank Sinatra School of the Arts in the borough of Queens on Thursday, appearing with Tony Bennett, who opened the school in 2001 through his Exploring the Arts program. Joel performed songs on two different pianos onstage — he sang “New York State of Mind” on one and “She’s Got a Way” on the other. In between his performances, he answered questions from students. The first: “What do you think is one of your biggest mistakes?” “My biggest mistake was signing a lot of contracts that I didn’t know what they were about,” said Joel, who released his first album in 1971. “I signed away a lot of my rights — record royalties, publishing rights,

copyrights and it took me years to get that stuff back.” One male student asked for a hug as the audience cheered on, another had the 64year-old sign his yearbook and a young girl got an autograph for her mother. The crowd of 400 students brought a playful side out of Joel, who was lively with the students. When asked who his favorite collaborator was, the Grammy winner answered: “Probably Elle Macpherson. That was a good collaboration,” he said of the Australian model he dated in the 1980s. One girl asked Joel if he would play “Uptown Girl.” “It’s my favorite song,” she gushed. “It sounds like crap without harmonies and drums,” Joel replied. “I can be your harmony,” she added to

laughs. Joel did not graduate with his high school class and instead was given a diploma 25 years later. He has made a number of visits to colleges in recent years — including a recent trip to Vanderbilt that went viral. He said in an interview that his favorite moment in school was cutting class to go play the piano in the auditorium. He also said he was greatly affected by one of his teachers. “I had a good chorus teacher and he encouraged me to become a musician. That’s my greatest memory of school — an adult said, ‘You should consider becoming a professional musician,”’ he recalled. “I’d never heard (that) before in my life and that kind of changed my life.” Bennett’s Exploring the Arts program supports 14 schools in New York and will launch

three schools in Los Angeles this year. He and his wife, former teacher Susan Crow, kept Joel’s appearance a secret since March. “I had teachers texting me last night, ‘Susan, who’s coming?’ My lips are sealed,” Crow said. Joel’s interaction with the students was a memorable moment for Bennett, a Queens native. “It’s something that will stay with them forever and ever,” he said. Joel, who was born in the Bronx, said he was teased when he would get piano lessons since that teacher also taught ballet. “I would walk by the guys on my block (and they’d say), ‘Where’s your tutu?’ They’d knock the books out of my hand,” Joel recalled, which earned a stream of “awws” from the students. “But then I took up boxing,” he said.

Best-selling author, outspoken Rev. Greeley dies

CHICAGO (AP) — The Rev. Andrew Greeley was, it seems, always writing. At home on a typewriter, later on a computer, then on a plane with a laptop and even in his car dictating into a tape recorder as he drove. By the time he finished, the outspoken Roman Catholic priest and Chicago newspaper columnist had written more than 100 non-fiction books and some 50 novels, many international mystery thrillers that routinely climbed onto best-seller lists. They were translated into a dozen languages. And he also often spoke out about various religious topics, even criticizing the hierarchy of his own church over the child sex abuse scandal. “His mind was never idle,” said Tom Smith, Greeley’s longtime colleague at the University of Chicago, where Greeley spent years as a sociology researcher. “He was the kind of person who could be writing a column and get an idea for a novel, have a conversation he would use in a novel, use his novels to inspire his academic work and his academic

work to inspire his novels,” Smith said Thursday, shortly after learning about his friend’s death. On Wednesday night, nearly five years after he suffered a brain injury during a fall that put him in a coma for weeks, Greeley died in his home in downtown Chicago. He was 85. “He served the church all those years with a prophetic voice and with unfailing dedication,” his niece, Elizabeth Durkin, said in a statement. She also praised Greeley as a loving uncle who “tremendously enriched” his family’s lives. Greeley, who was ordained in 1954, wrote a weekly column that appeared in the Chicago Sun-Times and other newspapers on the relationship between religion and politics. An internationally recognized scholar, he also was a contributor to the New York Times, National Catholic Reporter and other publications. His final book, “Chicago Catholics and the Struggles Within Their Church,” was published in 2010, exploring a topic that he had written

about for years, sometimes giving him a reputation for generating controversy in the church.

“Sometimes I think that we as priests and bishops have done everything we possibly could to drive away the laity during the last 20 years,” Greeley wrote in his book “Catholic Contributions: Sociology and Policy,” published in 1987. Greeley also had said that neither the church nor the government was willing to do much about priests who sexually abused children, telling a lay Catholic group in 1992: “The sexually maladjusted priest has been able to abuse the children of the laity and thus far be reasonably secure from punishment.”

And during a news conference in 1987, Greeley said that if he were heading a church fundraising campaign, he would admit to church members that “we’ve really goofed. People are resentful over what they take to be the insensitivity of church leaders — particularly on matters relating to sex.”

James scores 30, Heat take Game 5 Friday, May 31, 2013 Phone: 575-622-7710, ext. 304


Roswell Daily Record

MIAMI (AP) — There will be no win-orelse Game 6 in the Eastern Conference finals for the Miami Heat this season. LeBron James saw to that, and now the reigning champions are one victory from a third straight trip to the NBA Finals. James finished with 30 points, eight rebounds and six assists, Udonis Haslem made his last eight shots on the way to a 16-point night, and the Heat used a dominant third quarter to turn things around and beat the Indiana Pacers 90-79 in Game 5 on Thursday. Mario Chalmers scored 12 points and Dwyane Wade added 10 for the Heat, who lead the series 3-2 and will look to close it out at Indiana on Saturday night. The Heat ousted the Pacers in six games in a second-round matchup last season. Paul George had 27 points and 11 rebounds for the Pacers, who got 22 points from Roy Hibbert and 17 from David West. The Pacers led by as many as seven at one point, but had no answer for the Heat in the third, getting outscored 30-13 in the period, including 21-6 in the final 7 minutes. James and Haslem combined for 26 points in the third, and were simply too much. Haslem’s first shot of the night hit the side of the backboard. He didn’t miss



again, going 8 for 8 and sealing it with a jumper with 1:51 left — 12 seconds before drawing an offensive foul against Lance Stephenson, the sixth for the Pacers’ guard, who finished with just four points. A year ago, the Heat lost Game 5 of the East finals to Boston, and needed a 45point game from James in Game 6 just to extend their season. Not this time. The Finals — and a date with San Antonio — is now one win away. As if this one needed any more buildup, there was plenty of news long before tipoff. The NBA announced in the morning that it fined James, West and Lance Stephenson $5,000 apiece for flopping in Game 4, along with upgrading a foul that West committed against Wade in the fourth quarter of that game to a flagrant-1. Then Hibbert and West, speaking after Indiana’s morning practice, said they have to protect their knees when Shane Battier is in the game for Miami, though neither flatly accused the Heat forward of dirty play.

Schwartzel fires 65, takes lead at Memorial

DUBLIN, Ohio (AP) — Charl Schwartzel made sure one hole didn’t ruin an entire round Thursday in the Memorial. Schwartzel hit the ball so consistently well at Muirfield Village that the former Masters champion twice had stretches of four straight birdies. And when he made a double bogey with an 8iron in hand and his ball on

a tee toward the end of the round, he got rid of that bad taste with one last birdie for a 7-under 65. Schwartzel had a one-shot lead over Scott Piercy, who went from smashing it to playing it safe, and he was six shots clear of five-time winner Tiger Woods. Woods hit the ball well enough to be much closer, though he missed too many

birdie chances and didn’t make up any ground on the par 5s. “That’s probably the highest score I could have shot,” Woods said after his 1-under 71. Woods was one shot worse than 53-year-old Fred Couples, the Presidents Cup captain at Muirfield Village this fall, and one shot better than 14-year -old Guan

Tianlang, who has played more PGA Tour events than Woods over the last two months. Rory McIlroy, meanwhile, might be headed for another short week at the tournament Jack Nicklaus built. After opening with a birdie, McIlroy didn’t putt nearly well enough to atone for some loose shots. McIlroy four -putted the par -3 12th for a double bogey, had a three-putt bogey on No. 7 and ended his round by missing a 4foot birdie putt. That gave him a 78. “I don’t really have many explanations for this,” McIlroy said. Schwartzel played in the morning, when the slick greens were still smooth, and he made 10 birdies in his round. Most of them were in the 10-foot range, though he picked up a bonus with a 25-foot putt down a slight ridge on the 16th. As well as he played, he thought a great round might turn into just a good one with one swing. His 8-iron on the par -3

Moreland, Rangers top D-backs 9-5 B2 Friday, May 31, 2013


ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Mitch Moreland hit a two-run homer, rookie right-hander Justin Grimm took a shutout into the sixth inning and Texas snapped its first threegame losing streak of the season with a 9-5 interleague victory against the Arizona Diamondbacks on Thursday. Grimm (5-3) allowed four hits through five innings and was replaced after giving up three runs in the sixth. The 24-year-old AL rookie leader in wins and strikeouts gave up eight hits and three runs, two earned, with three strikeouts. The Rangers beat the Diamondbacks after they were swept in a doubleheader in Arizona on Monday and had the first of two games in Texas rained out Wednesday night. Arizona right-hander Brandon McCarthy (2-4) had allowed one run in 25 innings when the Rangers scored six in a span of four outs in the second and third. The outburst started when center fielder A.J. Pollock misplayed a line drive by Nelson Cruz into a double. A.J. Pierzynski brought Cruz home with a

The Rangers went up 6-0 in the third on three straight run-scoring hits — a double from Adrian Beltre, a single by Cruz and a two-run homer from Moreland that hit near the top of the foul pole in right. McCarthy lost for the first time since April 26 in his shortest outing of the season. He gave up nine hits and six runs in just 2 2-3 innings.

Brett asked to turn around Royals’ hitting woes

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Stuck in an eight-game losing streak, the stumbling Kansas City Royals turned to the greatest player in franchise history to turn around their hitting woes. Hall of Famer George Brett was appointed the club’s interim hitting coach Thursday and will join the team in time for their game against the St. Louis Cardinals. Brett takes over for Jack Maloof and Andre David, who have been reassigned to the minor league organization. This will be Brett’s first in-season coaching role, though he’s been the franchise’s vice president of baseball operations since retiring as a player following the 1993 season. He’s also worked as a volunteer coach at spring training for years. “I’m thankful that this organization has one of the greatest hitters and more importantly one of the greatest competitors our game has ever seen in George Brett, and he has accepted our offer to join the coaching staff on an interim basis,” Royals general manager Dayton Moore said. Royals manager Ned Yost dumped hitting coach Kevin Seitzer following last season, and said at the time that he wanted to develop an offense that flashed more power. Well, the offense hasn’t flashed much of anything.

The Royals, who have won just four of their last 23 games, haven’t scored more than three runs in their last six games. They rank near the bottom of the league in runs, walks, homers, RBIs and just about every other statistical category. After starting 1710, the Royals have fallen into last place in the AL Central. “Obviously things have not gone as we would have expected and in light of the downturn in offensive production and poor results we’ve decided to make a change,” said Moore, who thanked Maloof and David for their work. The 60-year-old Brett has turned down numerous opportunities to be a coach, and told The Associated Press during spring training that he’s had several chances to manage a team. But he’s been content to serve as a volunteer coach during spring training all these years because he said that he didn’t need the daily grind that comes with a 162-games schedule. But he’s kept his pulse on the organization by working in the front office, and earlier this week lamented during a radio interview the team’s misfortune. Evidently, the losses had piled up to the point that Brett was ready to accept the challenge.

Browns’ RB Richardson says he’s not injury prone

BEREA, Ohio (AP) — Not quite into his second NFL season, Browns running back Trent Richardson has already undergone knee surgery, broken some ribs, hurt his ankle and strained a muscle in his shin. He’s been battered and bruised, but Richardson is confident he’ll be able to stay on the field this year and the remainder of his career. Don’t you dare put a label on him. “Injury prone,” he said, “is not going to be me.” Richardson missed practice on Thursday with a strain in his lower right leg he sustained while running last week. Although the injury isn’t believed to be serious, the Browns are being extra careful with the former first-round pick, who may sit out next week’s minicamp as well. “It ain’t no biggie,” Richardson said. “It ain’t nothing to worry about. I could be out there but they want to be cautious about it and make sure I’m right for training camp.” As his teammates went through the final session of organized team activities under coach Rob Chudzinski, first-year Richardson worked off to the side on his conditioning. When he was finished and the Browns began to scrimmage, all Richardson could do was watch. And that’s when the real pain kicked in. “It’s terrible, man” he said. “But I know in my mind that it’s not going to be near like last year, being hurt and injured. It’s hard to just watch. I do want to be out there. I tell coach every day that I can go. I put my helmet on or something, and we laugh. I know he means good about sitting me out for right now.” Injuries slowed Richardson during a productive rookie season when he showed flashes of one day becoming a major star — if he isn’t one already. He missed the exhibition season recovering from an arthroscopic procedure on his knee, and then played the final 10 games with “two or three” broken ribs, an agonizing injury that would have sidelined most players. Still, the muscular 5-foot-9, 230-pounder managed to rush for 950 yards with 11 touchdowns and added 367 receiving yards. Richardson only missed the season finale. Chudzinski is confident Richardson can stay healthy and insists he isn’t worried by his brief history of injuries. “I’m not concerned,” he said. “He’s healthy from all the things from the past season and it’s something we’re working through. He’ll be fine.” Chudzinski will hold off until next week before deciding whether Richardson will participate fully in the minicamp (June 4-6). As tempting as it might be to see what Richardson can do in Cleveland’s new offensive system, Chudzinski won’t take any chances. The Browns’ offense is designed to challenge teams vertically with a down-field passing attack, but quarterback Brandon Weeden knows that a sound running game will keep defenses honest. And a back like Richardson — when healthy — makes a world of difference. “It’s huge,” Weeden said. “We need Trent back and that’s why him taking some time off now and getting 100 percent is a good idea. I told him, ‘We need you in training camp and ready for Week 1.’ He’s going to make this offense better. Yeah, we talk about all the balls being thrown downfield, but you’ve got to hand it to 33.” Richardson averaged around 18 carries per game last season, but he’s sure he will get the ball more in new coordinator Norv Turner’s scheme. He has spoken to Emmitt Smith — they went to the same high school — and LaDainian Tomlinson, who both flour-

ished with Turner calling the shots. “Norv, he’s talked to me about getting the ball a lot and making sure I’m the bell cow and working hard,” Richardson said. “I tell him I’m going to be in the best shape I can be to make sure I can lead this team or put this team on my back every day.” Before training camp, Richardson intends to visit famed orthopedist Dr. James Andrews at his clinic in Pensacola, Fla. Richardson typically sees Andrews for checkups on previous injuries. “Other than that, I’m going to be working on the beach, running up sand dunes,” he said. Long before he was drafted, Richardson said his goal was to make the Hall of Fame and follow in Smith’s footsteps. On Wednesday, legendary running back Jim Brown, who has returned to the Browns as a special adviser, said the only thing that can stop Richardson from reaching his goals are injuries.

served out the victory with the sun shining as rain fell. “She’s a champion, and I had to play some of my best tennis ever to beat her,” Mattek-Sands said. “I’m really proud of myself that I was able to close out the match the way I did.” In men’s play, six-time major champion Novak Djokovic gestured at threatening clouds between points, trying to keep them away, and managed to finish his drubbing of Guido Pella, 6-2, 6-0, 6-2. With five more victories Djokovic would become the eighth man to complete a career Grand Slam. No. 3 Victoria Azarenka, the Australian Open champion each of the past two years, beat Annika Beck 64, 6-3. Mattek-Sands was one of five U.S. women to reach the third round. Joining her Thursday were No. 54ranked Jamie Hampton, who matched her best Grand Slam showing by beating Anna Karolina Schmiedlova 7-5, 6-2, and No. 17 Sloane Stephens, who defeated fellow American Vania King 6-1, 6-3. Melanie Oudin of the United States lost to Zheng Jie 6-3, 6-1.


Ten singles matches were postponed, including seventime champion Rafael Nadal against Martin Klizan, and the all-American encounter between John Isner and Ryan Harrison. Defending champion Maria Sharapova led 19year-old Eugenie Bouchard 6-2, 4-2 when their match was interrupted by rain shortly before dark and suspended until Friday. Mattek-Sands matched her best effort at Roland Garros by reaching the round of 32. She failed to qualify for the Australian Open in January and arrived in Paris with a modest 10-8 record this year and a No. 67 ranking. “I was a little bit surprised today the way she’s hitting,” Li said. “Well done for her.” Li was ranked sixth. Since winning her lone major title, she has lost in the first or second round at four of the eight major events. Mattek-Sands’ best Grand Slam showing came at Wimbledon back in 2008, when she reached the fourth round. The 28-yearold Minnesota native is better known for her loud outfits, such as the one she wore at the finish against Li — a long-sleeve top over a neon tank, a black skirt, black sneakers and — as

double bogey. What saved him was a 12-foot birdie putt down the hill on his final hole, allowing him to leave the course with a smile. That’s not to suggest that if he

had made par on the last hole he would have been ready to retire from the game. “It would still be OK,” Schwartzel said. “It’s really when you’ve played that well and you’re thinking you get these few rounds a year where you really strike it well and you’re making lots of birdies and you walk

the piece de resistance — black knee-high socks. “I haven’t worn anything too crazy on court for a few years now,” Mattek-Sands said. “I feel like my racket has been doing a lot of the talking.” Playing on cozy court 1, nicknamed the bullring, she appeared on the verge of defeat in the second set when rain prompted a 90minute delay. She returned whacking winners, including a picturesque cross-

court backhand lob that gave her a break point and control of the final set. The 20-year-old Stephens also endured two rain delays and said she’s still learning how to handle the waiting. “You literally have nothing to do,” she said. “Should I eat? Do cartwheels? You have no idea what to do, so it’s just kind of you’re lost. “Last week in Brussels I got my nails done. And then

off with your 8, 9 under. And today was one of those where I really did flush it. And you’re think maybe another birdie, and then get knocked back with a little 8-iron making double.” Woods, trying to win five times before the U.S. Open for the first time in his PGA Tour career, looked as though he might get much

closer to the lead despite having to lay up on both par 5s on the front nine and failing to make birdie. He hit 5-wood into about 25 feet for a two-putt birdie on the par -5 11th, and then spent the last few hours giving away shots. He made bogey from the back bunker on the par-3 12th, missed a 6-foot birdie putt on the 13th, and chopped up the par-5 15th despite getting a break off the tee when his ball hit a tree and went back into the fairway. He still had to lay up, but a simple wedge went some 40 feet long to the back collar, and Woods had to make a 5-foot putt just to save bogey. “Didn’t capitalize on a few opportunities I had,” Woods said. “Short irons, I didn’t hit them close enough. All in all, it was a pretty high score.” It wasn’t nearly as high as what Nick Watney (82) and Nicolas Colsaerts (80) had on their cards. Woods plays in the morning for the second round and should be able to at least get closer to the top going into the weekend. Bill Haas and Matt Kuchar each had a 68, the best score of the afternoon.

we had chocolate and I watched my mom get makeup. And then I played a match.” Despite the interruptions, Stephens overpowered King from start to finish and enjoyed a 26-1 advantage in baseline winners. Meanwhile, Oudin was doomed by a weak serve. She won only 19 of 51 service points and holding just once. Former No. 1 Jelena Jankovic won 12 consecu-

Piercy is one of the longer hitters on tour, so it would seem his game would be a good fit for the Memorial. He hasn’t had much luck, so he decided to scale back off the tee and used 3-wood where he typically would hit driver to take it over the bunkers. Piercy had a 66, his best score in 10 rounds at Muirfield Village. Josh Teater, Russell Henley and Kyle Stanley were at 67, while Charlie Wi, Matt Jones and Michael Thompson shot 69. Piercy hit one of the longest drives on the 18th hole last year, leaving him a flip wedge to the green. Muirfield Village is a big golf course, with some of the widest fairways on tour and thick rough — it should be thick for fairways that generous. But hitting driver never really worked for Piercy, so he decided to go with 3-wood, and he stuck with his plan. He still had relatively short irons into the green, and he knew he was onto something when he ran off five straight birdies on the front nine. “I thought I’d hit a lot of 3-woods today and open up the fairways and allow me to get at some pins and


tive games to beat the rain and Garbine Muguruza. Jankovic fell behind early but rallied past Muguruza 6-3, 6-0 shortly before showers interrupted the first matches of the day on 12 other courts. A brief dry spell allowed 2010 runner-up Sam Stosur to complete a secondround victory over Kristina Mladenovic 6-4, 6-3, before the rain resumed. With temperatures in the mid-50s, Jankovic took the court wearing pink leggings and a long-sleeve pink shirt. She looked uncomfortable at the start, losing the first three games, then won the rest after adjusting to the strokes of Muguruza, a 19-year-old Spaniard. “She’s a great up and coming player,” Jankovic said. “She hits the ball very hard, very flat. And especially in the beginning of the match she gave me a lot of trouble. I figured out the way to play against her, and I think I did pretty well.” Jankovic won with steady play from the baseline, while the big-swinging Muguruza committed 29 unforced errors. Jankovic, seeded 18th, is a three-time semifinalist at Roland Garros. She’ll next play 2011 U.S. Open champion Stosur. knock them on the greens and make some putts,” he said. “Maybe I’m getting older.” His 3-wood still goes plenty far. Piercy cut off a quarter -inch from the shaft, and found he was hitting it about 290 yards. Couples, meanwhile, was pleasantly surprised by his round of 70, mainly because he had a great round on the greens, taking 25 putts and making a couple of 8- to 10-foot par putts look easy. Then again, Couples plays with such a silky rhythm that he rarely looks stressed. He enjoys playing with Woods, and the bonus was having former PGA champion Keegan Bradley in the group. He had never played with Bradley and had no idea he hit the ball with such power. Bradley hit consecutive tee shots on the 10th and 11th holes close to 350 yards, leaving him a 6-iron into the par-5 11th. “Most guys lay up with a 6-iron,” Couples said. Even so, Bradley could do no better than 71, not a bad start for an afternoon round.

Jammer in Denver to win a championship Zito, Giants down A’s

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — His paycheck may look like Peyton Manning’s tip money. Still, there’s at least one area where Manning and his newest Broncos teammate, defensive back Quentin Jammer, aren’t nearly so far apart. “When you’re forced to, you have decisions to make,” Jammer said Thursday, his first day of practice with his new team. “The next decision that you have to make is you have three to four more years left in you. What are you going to do with your life? I want to win a championship. I think Denver gives me that opportunity.” After spending his first 11 seasons without a title in San Diego, Jammer signed a oneyear deal worth around the veteran minimum to join Manning, Champ Bailey and the Broncos, who are assembling veteran pieces to make a run at the Super Bowl. Jammer played safety back in his college days at Texas, but after picking him fifth in the 2002 draft, the Chargers moved him to cornerback, where he started 161 games over his 11 years. After making Jammer the third ex-Charger they’ve signed in free agency this year, the Broncos touted the veteran’s flexibility in the defensive backfield. They plan to try him at safety. Time will tell whether

he’ll compete for a starting spot with Rahim Moore, he of the infamous Joe Flacco touchdown debacle, or simply add depth to Denver’s defensive backfield. The Broncos sometimes use up to four safeties in obvious pass situations. “At the end of the day, you’re trying to create competition and that’s why you make moves in the offseason,” coach John Fox said. “It’s never the same faces from year to year. We’ll try to improve our football team by making it more competitive and that makes us more competitive on game day.” Jammer, at 6-foot, 205 pounds, also has shown he can cover tight ends and other big receivers — an area the Broncos struggled with last season. “I think I’m that type of player, where I can come in, I can cover (tight ends), I can cover wide receivers, I can pretty much cover anybody on the field,” Jammer said. “I’ve been doing it for 11 years. Why stop now?” In Denver, at least, Jammer’s decision to sign with the Broncos stands in contrast to that of another defensive back, Charles Woodson, who visited the Broncos but decided on a more lucrative offer from the Raiders, who are not considered Super Bowl contenders. Jammer didn’t have a problem with his salary, which is

about $19 million less than Manning will make this season, but for that money, he wanted a chance at a ring. “I didn’t want to go anywhere where I couldn’t compete to have a chance to win a championship,” Jammer said. In the first meeting between the Broncos and Chargers last year, Jammer retur ned an interception off Manning for a touchdown.

Manning was, of course, ready for the obligatory questions about that play. Mostly, though, he said he was glad to see the Broncos add yet another seasoned veteran to a team that has signed receiver Wes Welker, offensive lineman Louis Vasquez, pass rusher Shaun Phillips and a handful more this offseason. “He is a veteran corner.

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Pablo Sandoval hit a go-ahead two-run single in the sixth to help Barry Zito end a six-start winless stretch, and the San Francisco Giants beat the Oakland Athletics 5-2 on Thursday to avoid a season sweep. A day after San Francisco made three errors and two other defensive miscues, the Giants finally got to A.J. Griffin (5-4) to snap the A’s six-game winning streak with their lone win in the four -game Bay Bridge Series between last year’s West division champions. Brandon Belt doubled in two runs in San Francisco’s four -run sixth. Zito (4-3) won against his former club for his first victory since beating San Diego at home April 21. The Giants improved to 7-0 in his home outings and have won 13 straight r egular -season games started by Zito at AT&T Park. San Francisco hasn’t lost a home start by Zito since last Aug. 2 against the New York Mets. The Giants have won 13 straight starts by the lefty when including Game 1 of the World Series last fall against the Tigers. Coco Crisp doubled among his three hits, but that was all the A’s could do against Zito. Yoenis Cespedes added an RBI single in the seventh.

DEAR ABBY: My ex-husband and I divorced a year ago. We share a 4-year-old son and have a cordial relationship. Shortly after our divorce, he married a woman he had been carrying on an affair with while married to me. Since their wedding she has not allowed him to enter my home beyond the front door, be alone with me for any reason regardless of what we need to discuss, and he rarely calls to talk with our son anymore — all at her “request.” He has also informed me that

DEAR NEEDS AN ANSWER: The current “Mrs.” is acting more like a jailer than a wife, but then, she knows what your ex is capable of if he gets past the front door or has private conversations with another woman.

This is happening because she perceives you as a threat. That your former husband allows her to exert this amount of control is unfortunate. The distancing from his son is happening because he is permitting it, and the loser here is the little boy. You’re not wrong, but if the only way your son can have a relationship with his dad is for this woman to be ever-present, then bite your tongue and go along with it for as long as this marriage lasts or your ex summons up enough backbone to set his No. 2 straight. #####

First, you can put a period (.) or the letter “A” before the emergency contacts so that they are listed at the top of your contacts list. Second, you should list the contact as “ICE-Mom,” or “ICE- Husband,” etc. Most emergency technicians and hospital personnel will look under the letter “I” for contact numbers.

I placed it on a foil-lined baking sheet in a thin layer and baked it in the oven on 150 F for a while to dry. I then put all the rice (I made two different colors) in a large, flat, plastic tub with a lid and added a couple of beach toys. My son loves it, and he can even play with it inside on a rainy day.

Windows 8.1 aims to simplify Oil, gas influence

Roswell Daily Record

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Microsoft is trying to fix what it got wrong with its radical makeover of Windows. It’s making the operating system easier to navigate and enabling users to set up the software so it starts in a more familiar format designed for personal computers. The revisions to Windows 8 will be released later this year. The free update, called Windows 8.1, represents Microsoft’s concessions to longtime customers taken aback by the dramatic changes to an operating system that had become a staple in households and offices around the world during the past 20 years. Research group IDC has blamed Windows 8 for accelerating a decline in PC sales. With the release of Windows 8 seven months ago, Microsoft introduced a startup screen displaying applications in a mosaic of interactive tiles instead of static icons. The shift agitated many users who wanted the option to launch the operating system in a mode that resembled the old setup. That choice will be provided in Windows 8.1. However, Microsoft isn’t bringing back the start menu on the lower left corner of the screen. Windows has offered the button for accessing all programs and settings on every previous version of the operating system since 1995. Microsoft believes the startup screen replaces the need for a button, but its omission has ranked among the biggest gripes about Windows 8. Microsoft is hoping to quiet the critics by resurrecting an omnipresent Windows logo anchored in the lower left corner. Users will also be able to ensure their favorite applications, including Word and Excel, appear in a horizontal tool bar next to the Windows logo. Accessing apps outside the toolbar will still require using the tiles or calling them up in a more comprehensive search engine included in the Windows 8.1 updates. Microsoft Corp. announced its plans for Windows 8.1 in early May, but it didn’t offer details about what it will include until Thursday. The Redmond, Wash., company will provide a more extensive tour of Windows 8.1 and several new applications built into the upgrade at a conference for programmers in San Francisco, scheduled to begin June 26. Antoine Leblond, a Microsoft executive who helps oversee the operating system’s program management, said the ability to start PCs in the more familiar format is meant to ease the “cognitive dissonance” caused by Windows 8.

predicted the desktop option will spur more sales of Windows 8 computers. “Some people were getting fixated” on the desktop issue, Milanesi said. “This may cause more people who felt uncomfortable with Windows 8 to take a second look.” Microsoft made the dramatic overhaul to Windows in an attempt to expand the operating system’s franchise beyond personal computers that rely on keyboards and mice to smartphones and tablet computers controlled by a touch or swipe of the finger. But Windows 8 has been widely panned as a disappointment, even though Microsoft says it has licensed more than 100 million copies so far. Microsoft views Windows 8.1 as more than just a fix-it job. From its perspective, the tuneup underscores Microsoft’s evolution into a more nimble company capable of moving quickly to respond to customer feedback while also rolling out more innovations for a myriad of Windows devices — smartphones, tablets or PCs. “Windows 8 has been out long enough for us to take stock of where things are going and what we need to do to move it forward,” Leblond said in an interview with The Associated Press. It’s crucial that Microsoft sets things right with Windows 8.1 because the outlook for the PC market keeps getting gloomier. IDC now expects PC shipments to fall by nearly 8 percent this year, worse than its previous forecast of a 1 percent dip. IDC also anticipates tablets will outsell laptop computers for the first time this year. The growing popularity of tablets is now being driven largely by less expensive devices with 7- and 8-inch display screens. Microsoft built Windows 8 to primarily to run on tablets with 10-inch to 12-inch screens, an oversight that Leblond said the company is addressing by ensuring Windows 8.1 works well on smaller devices. If Windows 8.1 doesn’t stimulate more sales of PCs and tablets running on the operating system, it could escalate the pressure on Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer. Although the company’s revenue and earnings have steadily risen since Ballmer became CEO 13 years ago, Microsoft’s stock performance has lagged other technology companies. Investors, though, appear to be more optimistic about Ballmer’s strategy. Microsoft’s stock has risen by 26 percent since Windows 8’s release last October, outpacing the 17 percent gain in the Standard & Poor’s 500 index during the same period. Microsoft’s stock gained 15 cents Thursday to close at $35.03.

The upcoming changes to Windows 8 are as much about reassuring the PC manufacturers and other device makers who license the operating system as appeasing consumers, Forrester Research analyst Sarah Rotman Epps said. “The messaging is really directed at people in the industry,” she said. “The original launch (of Windows 8) seemed incomplete and Microsoft is trying to address that now.” Windows 8.1 will lean heavily on Microsoft’s Bing search technology to simplify things. As with Windows 8, the search bar can be found by pulling out a menu from the right side of a display screen. Rather than requiring a user to select a category, such as “files” or “apps,” Windows 8.1 will make it possible to find just about anything available on the computer’s hard drive or on the Web by just typing in a few words. For instance, a search for “Marilyn Monroe” might display biographical information about the late movie star pulled from the Web, a selection of photos and video and even songs she sang. Anyone who wants to hear a particular song stored on the computer or play a specific game such as “Angry Birds” will just need to type a title into the search box to gain access within seconds. The redesigned search tool is meant to provide Windows 8.1 users with “pure power and instant entertainment,” said Jensen Harris, Microsoft’s director of user experience for the operating system. Applications also can be found by sorting them by letter or category. Other new features in Windows 8.1 include a built-in connection with Microsoft’s online storage system, SkyDrive, to back up photos, music and program files; Internet Explorer 11, the next generation of Microsoft’s Web browser; a lock-up screen that will display a slide show of a user’s favorite pictures; resized interactive tiles; and a photo editor. In an effort to avoid further confusion about the operating system, Windows 8.1 also will plant a tile clearly labeled “helps and tips” in the center of the startup screen. Even as Microsoft positions Windows 8 as its solution to the popularity of touch-screen tablets, it hasn’t proven it’s compelling enough to put a major dent in the popularity of Apple Inc.’s pioneering iPad or other tablets running on Google Inc.’s Android software. Microsoft, though, remains convinced that Windows 8 just needs a little fine tuning. “We feel good about the basic bets that we have made,” Leblond said.

DENVER (AP) — The oil and gas industry in Colorado exerts an outsize influence on state politics, and its generous political spending might be the reason, suggests a report released Thursday by a left-leaning watchdog group. Colorado Ethics Watch reviewed state lobbying disclosures and political donations from oil and gas companies, industry associations and their employees. The group concluded the industry spent nearly $5 million lobbying Colorado officials between 2007 and 2012. That’s more than twice what other mining businesses spent, and more than five times what the agriculture industry spent over the same period. The companies and their employees also were generous campaign donors, dishing out more than $800,000 to 113 Republican and 82 Democratic candidates. Ethics Watch does not accuse the oil and gas industry of wrongdoing. But the group suggests the industry benefits from spending so freely to influence politicians. “The oil and gas industry punches above its weight when it comes to influence on Colorado politics,” the report argues. Ethics Watch notes that the oil and gas industry still spends much less on lobbying and politics in Colorado than the health care industry, which dwarfed lobbyist spending by all other industries during the period in question with nearly $17 million. The watchdog group does suggest, though, that political spending by the oil and gas industry helps explain why state drilling regulations are so difficult for policymakers to tighten. The legislative session that concluded earlier this month featured several big wins by the industry, including the defeat of a bill to impose new conflict-of-interest restrictions on oil and gas regulators. Lawmakers also declined to hike drilling fines that haven’t changed since the 1950s. The oil and gas industry also helped block measures to increase drill inspections and water -testing requirements in northern Colorado. “We knew that there would be a lot of money spent on oil and gas, but they took it up a notch this session, and I think it had an effect,” said Sen. Matt Jones, D-Louisville, sponsor of some of the failed oil and gas measures. The largest oil and gas lobbying spenders in recent years were two Texas companies, Pioneer Natural Resources and Noble Energy Inc. The companies did not immediately return calls and emails for comment Thursday. The Colorado Oil and Gas Association, an industry group also mentioned in the report, blasted the ethic report as incomplete. The authors didn’t note how much conservation and environmental groups spend lobbying lawmakers to crack down on the industry, wrote COGA’s Doug Flanders. Colorado Ethics Watch also didn’t point out that it was pushing for one of the unsuccessful oil and gas bills. “Colorado Ethics Watch fails in its own ethics,” Flanders wrote. The head of Colorado Ethics Watch, Luis Toro, said the report is designed to raise public awareness, not castigate legal lobbying and political activity. “It’s really a smart business move. Companies do not spend money on things unless it benefits shareholders,” Toro said. “But when people think that their vote counts less than the influence of lobbyists, that’s bad for democracy.”
