Sheriff’s race uncertain; leans toward Snyder Rogers retains in judge race BY JEFF TUCKER, RANDAL SEYLER AND TIM HOWSARE RECORD STAFF
The race for Chaves County sheriff see-sawed back and forth Tuesday night, with Britt Snyder up by 12 votes when all the ballots were counted, although there was still uncertainty about which candidate had won the four-way race. The final vote tally gave Snyder 1,666 votes, or 38.45 percent, with Pat Barncastle receiving 1,654 votes, or 38.17 percent. Snyder and Barncastle ran away with the night. Fellow sheriff candidates Arthur Fleming and Gary Graves shared less than 24 percent of the vote, with Fleming receiving 571 and Graves catching 442 votes. Chaves County Clerk Dave Kunko said the vote totals included all early, absentee and military votes, as well as all election day ballots. However, the unknown variable was the number of provisional ballots and whether there would be
enough to sway the election. Kunko said late Tuesday the sheriff’s race was still uncertain. “If there are any valid ones,” Kunko said. “We really don’t know at this point. Some of them do pan out as good. When you have close races like that, it’s definitely uncertain.” Provisional ballots are those set aside because of voting irregularities and therefore not initially counted on election night. Some could be considered valid, and therefore could change the final tallies. The county clerk’s office is responsible for verifying whether provisional ballots should be included. The drama is set to unfold Friday mor ning when the Chaves County commissioners canvass the election results, and therefore sanction the official election results. Another potential wrinkle is whether Barncastle will request a recount, like the recount four years ago

Arnett, Barncastle led others in fundraising BY JEFF TUCKER RECORD STAFF WRITER
Magistrate judge candidate Bobby Arnett and Chaves County sheriff candidate Patrick Barncastle led their respective fields in fundraising for Tuesday’s Republican primary, both by significant margins. Arnett maintained a significant fundraising advantage over Judge Keith “K.C.” Rogers throughout the magistrate’s race, and widened the
gap in recent weeks, according to campaign finance reports filed last week by the candidates with the New Mexico secretary of state office.
Ar nett had raised a total of $33,146 through May 27 in his campaign for the Republican nomination for Magistrate Judge Division 1 in Chaves County.
Rogers, the incumbent, had raised a total of $13,790 in an effort to retain his seat on the bench.
In the reporting period covering May 6 through 27, Arnett raised $9,410 and spent $10,153. Rogers raised $1,895 in the timeframe, and spent $3,087. Arnett, of Roswell, closed the third primary reporting period on May 27 with $8,241 cash on hand, while Rogers, of Midway, had $5,753 left in his campaign coffers. Arnett continued to reap several See FUNDRAISING, Page A3

Roswell’s former Carnegie Library will be sold at an auction on Friday. The library closed in 1978 when the new, larger library opened at Fourth Street and North Pennsylania Avenue.

Have you noticed the curved staircases rising from the sidewalk while walking downtown on West Third Street? This is a trademark detail required for Car negie libraries. It symbolizes a person’s elevation, or growth, through learning. Roswell’s Car negie Library is up for auction Friday through Ranchline Taylor and Taylor Realtors, LTD. Its estimated value is $375,000. The lucky buyer will lay claim to a 6,337-square-foot building that has history echoing through it and even a possible alien in the basement. It is located in the heart of downtown business district. Ranchline representative Nicole Vargas said there has been interest shown by several buyers. One group wants to convert it to a homeless shelter for veterans. Another has plans to establish a hostel — an inexpensive, supervised lodging facility for young people. Vargas pointed out several his-

toric features including huge rooms, an antique armoire, amazing wooden staircases and even a dumbwaiter. “It just needs love and care and someone who is passionate about the history of the building,” she said. Though there is a desire for the Roswell Historical Society to do something to keep the library, Larry Knadle, board member of the society, noted that ADA and building code requirements make renovating historic properties costly. A survey done in 2006 estimated repair costs to be approximately $60,000. This did not include possible asbestos removal. Jan Dunnahoo, a lifelong resident, has fond memories of the Carnegie Library. She recalls, “When I was really, really small, my mother and brother would walk to town about a mile and a half. This was before my mother drove. “We would shop downtown and get my brother’s hair cut at the barberSee LIBRARY, Page A2

ALBUQUERQUE (AP) — Two-term Attorney General Gary King won New Mexico’s Democratic gubernatorial contest Tuesday for the right to challenge Republican Gov. Susana Martinez in the general election. Martinez, who’s favored to win re-election, is a rising star in GOP circles as the nation’s first female Hispanic gover nor. The first-term governor had no primary election opponent. King defeated four other candidates with a little over a third of the vote, according to unofficial incomplete returns. He led in the voterich Albuquerque metropolitan area and large swaths of the rest of the state, including ranching and oilproducing regions. “This is the battle for the future of New Mexico — and this starts tomorrow,” King told cheering supporters in a victory speech. He pointed out that a recent report ranked New Mexico worst in the country in child well-being. “We are going to stand together for families. We’re going to stand together for the working people in the state of New Mexico. We’re going to stand together for teachers and education.” Santa Fe businessman • GARY LEE ST. LOUIS
Alan Webber ran second behind King, followed by former government administrator Lawrence Rael of Albuquerque and state Sen. Howie Morales of Silver City. State Sen. Linda Lovejoy of Albuquerque trailed.
Without a primary opponent, Martinez has amassed a hefty campaign war chest of more than $4 million and aired television advertisements to polish her image and frame the general election on her terms. One recent ad said Democrats would return to the “same failed agenda” of former Democratic Gov. Bill Richardson. Martinez hammered at that theme in remarks to party loyalists on election night, saying the primary results “make clear what this race is really all about: the past versus the future, moving forward or taking our state backward.” “Do we want a governor who is willing to lead, willing to shake things up, who truly believes the best days are ahead of us?” Martinez asked. “Or do we want a governor who believes that our best days are behind us — that we should turn back the clock.”

shop. Then we would stop at the library before going home. The kids’ library was in the basement; it was always cooler there.” Walking home carrying their books made the kids feel important. She chuckles, admitting in high school, “lots of us kids used the library as an excuse to drag Main.” She points out she did research there, too, when necessary. Knadle reminisced that as a young boy, his father tasked him with paying the bills. At that time, Richardson Street was lined with many businesses, including the gas and electric companies. Larry remembers a big tree on the corner and the fact that there was a shortcut around the tree through the library yard. This shortcut helped speed his travels. He recalled the sundial that sat out front engraved with the phrase, “I count the bright days only.” More than a hundred years ago, philanthropist Andrew Carnegie set out to share his wealth and lift the education of his adopted country by giving $10,000 grants (a quarter of a million of today’s dollars) for the building of libraries. There were only two catches: The construction site had to have a free title and the town had to have a maintenance fund equaling 10 percent of the grant. This philanthropy funded 3,000 libraries in 47 states, including three in New Mexico. Raton’s has been demolished and Las Vegas is still using its library. Roswell’s library closed in 1978. The persistence of the Roswell Woman’s Club can be thanked for establishing the library. In 1900, the club began the process to obtain the grant because it had a desire to share its book collection with others. Their efforts were frustrated by Carnegie’s reluctance to consider applications from women. It wasn’t until 1902, when a mill levy was passed by male voters, that the dream was realized. This levy provided money for the mandatory maintenance fund. The women went to work raising funds to purchase the lot on the corner of North Richardson and West Third Street for $700 (about $17,500
Roswell Daily Record
The life and times of Roswell’s public libraries 1891 — Roswell was incorporated as a village, population was 400.
1895 — The Roswell Woman’s Club was organized by five educated women with the objective to secure good reading material for themselves and their families.
1897 — The Woman’s Club opened a reading room. It was also an attempt to bring local cowboys out of Roswell’s 17 saloons and into an enriched cultural setting. No such luck.
1900 — Population was 2,000. The Woman’s Club began work to obtain a grant from Andrew Carnegie to build a library. The first requirement to be met was to own a building site with a good title, free of debt. The second requirement was a guarantee from the town council of a maintenance fund of 10 percent of the amount donated for the library building. Undaunted by Carnegie’s refusal to work with women, the women enlisted the aid of the town council. They told the town trustees that if they would write the letters, the women would do the groundwork. 1902 — On April 1, the male citizens voted to levy a one-mill tax on the total valuation of property in the town. This would cover Carnegie’s second requirement.
1904 — The lot on the corner of Richardson and Third Street was selected for $700. The money was raised by donations, club dues, club entertainments and a special issue of the Roswell Daily Record published by members of the Woman’s Club. This money purchased the lot to complete the first requirement. All extra

A picture taken at the time of completion hangs in City Hall. The members of the club stand proudly out front of the building in dresses with corsets and hats. The Car negie Library served Roswell until 1978. Roswell’s growing population had surpassed the space, and the current
monies were to purchase furniture for the library.
1904 — Carnegie granted $10,000 for the construction of a library building. Mr. T. MacLaren from Colorado Springs, Colo., was the architect. Cost of the building was $9,000 and Mr. MacLaren received 5 percent of the contract price. 1906 — On April 2, the Carnegie Library opened. It was one of three in the Territory of New Mexico. Miss Marie McCain was the first librarian and Charles E. Mason, manager of the Roswell Daily Record, was the first library cardholder.
1907 — The circulation for nine months was 10,969. The 1910 population was 6,172. In an interesting comparison, the nine-day circulation for March 9 to March 17, 1991, was 11,665. The 1990 census for Roswell was 48,900.
1963 — Freda Chambers became library director.
1966 — Gordon McShean served as library director until 1967, resigning after an intense controversy over “hippie poetry‚” presentations at the library. Several interim directors served between 1967 and 1969. 1968 — A bond issue for a new library failed.
1976 — Sunday hours of operation were implemented March 1.
1952 — The remodeling of the Carnegie Library was completed with 5,100 square feet. 1958 — Elizabeth York was library director. 1960 — The building was

The original clock was also moved to the new library in a nod to time moving on. The building has gone through many changes through the years.

1950 — A second bond issue in the amount of $50,000 was passed.
1969 — Ed Sayre became library director until 1970, when another acting director was named.
1971 — Col. Jim Moore was selected as library director, serving until 1975.
1940 — A bond issue in the amount of $30,000 was passed for remodeling the library.
Who says you can’t have a “big fish” story in the same newspaper issue as the election results? Tom Tyler, of Roswell, caught this 50-pound catfish Monday evening in the Pecos River in Dexter. He said it was an excellent kickoff to the fishing season. Tyler said the largest catfish he’s ever caught weighed 67 pounds. Tyler said he planned to gut and eat the fish.
1961 — Betty Shause served as library director.

The uncertainty existed at Snyder’s election night party, although Snyder sounded optimistic. “We’re up by 12 votes; at this point, we will consider that a victory,” Snyder said to begin his “victory” speech to supporters at Carmine’s Authentic Italian Eatery. “We’ll have to see what happens in the coming hours and days. This has been a very stressful time to say the least. We have spent many a night worrying about how this would turn out.” Snyder held a 21-vote lead at about 9:30 p.m. when results were finally

He also received $2,000 donations each on May 13 from oil and natural gas investor Mark Murphy, of Roswell, and from Murphy Petroleum Corp., of Roswell. Ar nett also raked in a $1,000 donation in the most recent reporting period from business owner T.J. Wright, of Azle, Texas. Ar nett’s other reported donations ranged from $20 to $500. Rogers’ largest contribution in the May 6 to 27 reporting period was a $350 donation from Roswell business owner Kay Rogers on May 21. His other donations in the timeframe ranged from $25 to $200. Rogers received an inkind contribution of $1,186 on May 11 from the Friends of Dennis Kintigh political committee. Rogers’ campaign treasurer, Rhoda Coakley, said the in-kind contribution was leftover money from Kintigh’s campaign as a former state representative. Coakley said Kintigh’s campaign mailed a brochure, asking recipients to donate to Rogers’ campaign and explaining
tabulated for Precinct 41, the last of the county’s 55 precincts. Barncastle won Precinct 41 with 36 votes to Snyder’s 27, therefore reducing Snyder’s overall lead to 12 votes. “These 12 voters are probably people who switched from Democrat to Republican,” Snyder joked, while thanking his family, friends and supporters. Barncastle and around 60 of his supporters were in party mode Tuesday night at the Holiday Inn on North Main Street, where pizza, finger foods and drinks were served. Bar ncastle said he expected a close race with Snyder, whom he called a good man. “Obviously, we knew this was going to happen,” he said. “Britt and I ran professional race with no mud-slinging.” Barncastle, an investiKintigh’s relationship with Rogers when the mayor of Roswell worked in law enforcement. In-kind contributions do not involve money transfers, and are the expenditure of funds or resources on behalf of a candidate. Arnett’s largest expenditure in the May 6 to 27 reporting period was a $4,103 payment to the Roswell Daily Record on May 12 for newspaper advertising. Rogers’ largest expenditure in the timeframe was $1,235 to Majestic Communications, of Roswell, on May 16 for radio ads. Both magistrate judge candidates spent heavily on radio ads in the closing weeks of the campaign, which consumed the bulk of their expenditures. Arnett held a nearly 2-to1 fundraising advantage until the most recent reporting period, when he approached a 3-to-1 fundraising advantage. Rogers was appointed magistrate judge in August 2013 by Gov. Susana Martinez after the retirement of Magistrate Judge Eugene De Los Santos. Arnett works for his family’s fireworks business.
Sherriff’s race financing
Patrick Barncastle raised nearly as much money in the most recent reporting period as all three other sherif f candidates com-
gator for the Chaves County District Attorney’s Of fice, could not be reached late Tuesday and asked whether he would request a recount. Snyder is the chief deputy in the Chaves County Sheriff’s Office. Sherif f Rob Coon, who could not seek re-election due to term limits, was on hand at Snyder’s election night event in support of Snyder.
The hotly contested and highly visible race for the Chaves County magistrate judge between Bobby Ar nett and incumbent K.C. Rogers was never very close Tuesday night. In unof ficial results, Rogers received 650 votes, or 54.08 percent of the ballot total, while Arnett gar nered 552 votes, or 45.92 percent.
“I’m excited and glad that it’s over and glad that I won,” Rogers said late Tuesday. Rogers declined to comment on the political impact of three members of Arnett’s family registering to vote at their family business in Dexter, and not at the polling sites for their residences, which are in a different magistrate district. “I feel glad that I won on my credentials and my record — not against Mr. Ar nett, but on my own record,” Rogers said. Arnett, approached at his election night event at Cattleman’s Steakhouse, initially declined to comment, saying he would send the Roswell Daily Record an email. “I would like to thank all of my family, friends, supporters and contributors for the overwhelming support they have given me

We were able to make some wonderful connections while going door to door, and I sincerely appreciate everyone who took the time to visit with us.” Arnett did not address the alleged voting irregularities of his family members in the statement. “We made some friendships that will last a lifetime,” he stated. “I also want to thank my campaign committee for their help during the campaign. Their commitment and ingenuity made this campaign infor mative and exciting. I will also tip my hat to my opponent. He worked very hard to get elected and will serve Chaves County with distinction.” Rogers was appointed to expenses in recent weeks were $1,989 to AlphaOmega Printing, of Roswell, for letters and cards, $1,291 to KBIM Radio for ads, $1,231 to the Daily Record for newspaper ads, and $1,159 to Majestic Radio of Roswell for radio ads.

“I appreciate all the support I received from everyone,” Rogers said earlier election night at his campaign event at Carmine’s Authentic Italian Eatery. “This is for my dad. I know he’s up there watching, looking over everything and having a good laugh.”
Political observers, such as Mayor Dennis Kintigh, were at the county administrative building election night closely following the results.
Kintigh said the RogersArnett race divided Chaves County Republicans. One woman said it had become a marital issue.

Negotiating with terrorists
A4 Wednesday, June 4, 2014
Euphoria over the Taliban’s release of Ar my Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl was quickly tempered by media reports that Bergdahl had abandoned his post and that his father made comments opposing the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Bergdahl’s father tweeted, “I am still working to free all Guantanamo prisoners. God will repay for the death of every Afghan child.” Does that include those children killed while being used as human shields by the Taliban? Where is Bergdahl’s concern for women who die from “honor killings” and for girls who are denied an education? The up-front cost of this “prisoner exchange” is the release of five terrorists from the U.S. prison at Guantanamo Bay. Future costs could be much higher. Not to mention the fact that news of the controversial exchange knocked reports on the VA fiasco right off the front pages. Was this partly the administration’s intent? Official U.S. policy has been “we don’t negotiate with terror-
ists.” Except when we do. Sgt. Bergdahl, America’s only prisoner of war, was reportedly in failing health after more than five years in captivity and negotiations to secure his release were urgent and laborious, but freeing five dangerous men to secure the release of one soldier could very well put this country in increased danger. What should we have done? It depends upon the outcome one is seeking. If rescuing one man is paramount, then any price is worth it. But if that rescue leads to the deaths of others, as is likely, then the price is too high. In a joint statement following President Obama’s announce-
ment of the terrorists’ release, House Armed Services Committee Chairman Howard P. McKeon (RCalif.), and Sen. James Inhofe (ROkla.), the ranking Republican on the Senate Armed Services Committee, spoke of “...consequences for the rest of our forces and all Americans. Our terrorist adversaries now have a strong incentive to capture Americans.” The five terrorists include two senior militant commanders alleged to have been implicated in murdering thousands of Shiites in Afghanistan. The five have been shipped to Qatar. President Obama says the Qatari government has assured him they will be subjected to security restrictions and won’t be a threat to the U.S. How does he know this? Even in a “moderate” Muslim state like Qatar, Islamic blood is thicker than the “water” of infidels. The prisoner release is another in a growing list of executive actions that bypass Congress, which has imposed strict statutory restrictions on moving detainees out of Gitmo.
Roswell Daily Record
These include a determination by the secretary of defense that any transfers are in America’s national security interests; that procedures are in place to substantially mitigate any future threats by the terrorists and most importantly, that Congress receives notification 30 days before any planned release. Congress received no such notice. Once again, President Obama has circumvented the law. The track record of previous terrorist prisoners released from Gitmo is not a reason for confidence. According to a recent U.S. intelligence report, 603 prisoners have been freed from Guantanamo; 100 of them are confirmed to have returned to terrorism, and another 74 for mer inmates are suspected of returning to terrorism. Wayne Simmons, a former CIA operative, told Foxnews.com what he observed during several visits to Gitmo: “These guys come in wounded, they take care of their wounds. No limbs? We give them brand new prostheses. Tur n them loose, guy goes home, picks
up ar ms and uses that leg to help kill us.” Brigadier General Jay Hood, who once ran Gitmo, confirmed this scenario in testimony before a House panel in 2005. About a detainee named Abdullah Mehsud, Gen. Hood said, “He came to us without one leg ... we fitted him with a prosthetic leg before he left while in U.S. custody.” The cost was reported to be between $50,000 and $75,000. After his release, Pakistani officials say he directed an attack in Pakistan that killed 31 people. Two months later he blew himself up to avoid capture. Radical Islamists are serious about killing in pursuit of their extreme objectives. Releasing their soldiers can only embolden them to take more Americans hostage. The deal for Sgt. Bergdahl may well turn out to have been a bargain with the devil.

Congress, can we bank on reform?
There’s a key vote coming up in Congress. If it goes one way, momentum could finally build for serious reform — not just tweaking the budget, but changing the way the federal government operates. If the vote goes the other way, however, prospects for that kind of reform look dim. But it’s not a vote on one of the “big issues” of the day. It’s not a comprehensive immigration bill, or a marquee piece of financial legislation. It’s a vote on whether to let the charter of the Export-Import Bank expire. At stake is the success or failure of the whole bipartisan push against crony capitalism. The Export-Import Bank, or Ex-Im, as it’s known inside the Beltway, is an obscure institution. But it’s tremendously powerful. As The Hill plainly puts it, Ex-Im doles out “hundreds of billions of dollars in taxpayersubsidized loans to some of the largest corporations in the world.” As the Washington Times has shown, the specific figures are eye-opening. Of $19 billion in loans and guarantees granted by ExIm, 44 percent went toward Boeing projects. More than $1 billion went to just three other companies. In 2010, when Ex-Im handed out $13 billion, about 90 percent went to 10 major corporations. That’s corporate welfare at its most flagrant and egregious. Worse than a handout, it’s an invitation to favoritism, corruption and bad business. Of course, Ex-Im has its supporters, and they’re lobbying hard. The Chamber of Commerce is working overtime with a host of industry and manufacturing associations to keep the taxpayer dollars flowing. In an attempt to seem less like a cash cow for corporations, Ex-Im has released a report showing trumpeting the 86 percent of “small-business owners” who are “satisfied or extremely satisfied with their overall ExIm Bank experience.” Perhaps most ironically, Ex-Im’s supporters are pushing a new ad that unearths some old praise for the bank written by Ronald Reagan in 1984. The truth is, however, that the bank nurtured crony capitalism back then, and it does so even more today. As columnist Veronique de Rugy points out, even Barack Obama admitted that — back before he became president. The reality of Ex-Im is an open secret in Washington, allowed to flourish amid widespread voter ignorance. Now that Americans are catching on, all that could change — with big implications for the way policy is made and unmade in the future. Shuttering the Export-Import Bank is the low-hanging fruit in today’s effort to fight cronyism and corruption. If Congress can’t find the courage to succeed here, it’s hard to see how they’ll find it anywhere.
Selling candidates not like selling beer You’ve heard the argument: About two-thirds of a total of $5.19 billion spent on political advertising during the 2012 election year was spent on television. So selling a presidential candidate is really not that much different from selling a beer? No, they’re entirely different. For example, consider the matter of market share. If you were Bud Light, your 28.3 percent share of the U.S. beer market made you No. 1 and a landslide winner over Coors Light, which in the same year captured a respectable 9.9 percent market share. Politics are a lot more unforgiving. In 1976, Republican President Gerald Ford won 49 percent of the “market share” and not only lost his job but also was summarily evicted from his place of residence. Not to mention Democrat Al Gore, who in 2000 won 50.27 percent of the two-party vote and was forced to go
before the nation and concede to George W. Bush, his competitor who got a smaller “market share.” However, there’s a much more important dif ference between the TV ads for a presidential candidate and those for any popular consumer product. The 2012 campaigns of President Barack Obama and Mitt Romney, between them, bought approximately 1 million TV spots. But totally unlike TV spots for toothpaste or beer, nearly 90 percent of the expensive TV ads created and purchased for both Romney and Obama were negative
commercials attacking the opponent. You will never catch Budweiser buying costly TV time to war n us not to drink Heineken or Corona because they may make you fat, give you bad breath or even a hangover. It’s not because the brewers are more noble and high-minded; it’s because they know that such attack ads would inevitably hurt the overall beer business. Politics, with the possible exception of column writing, is the most imitative of art forms. In 2004, according to the Wesleyan Media Project, which keeps track of the data, 55 percent of Democrat John Kerry’s TV ads were positive and about his own record, biography or agenda, while Republican George W. Bush’s TV ads that year were 72 percent negative, emphasizing the shortcomings and defects of Kerry. Bush won in 2004, and so, too, did Obama in
2012, when his TV ads were slightly more negative than Romney’s. There are only really two ways to run any campaign: the high road or the low road. The high road is when the candidate ideally tells voters what he proposes to do in office, such as: “I believe we can make our public schools great, but it will mean no taxcuts — maybe even a small tax increase and a smaller military.” The low-road campaign is not about what together we might achieve but instead about how intellectually and morally bankrupt my opponent is. In short, I may not be an Abraham Lincoln or a Franklin Roosevelt, but the other guy is an ethical leper who would steal a hot stove and then go back for the smoke. This kind of attack politics, as we have learned painfully,
Plan ahead to keep healthy meals and snacks ready to go REPRINTED FROM THE ORANGE COUNTY REGISTER
DEAR DOCTOR K: Between my job and kids, I rarely have time to prepare and sit down to a healthy meal. I’ve had my fill of fast food and energy bars. Any suggestions? DEAR READER: It certainly is easy to eat badly. For one thing, as you say, many of us have very hectic schedules. Fast food is appealing because it’s fast. But fast food is often unhealthy. You don’t have to sacrifice nutrition when you’re on the go. I spoke to Dr. Michelle Hauser, a nutrition educator and clinical fellow in medicine at Har-
ASK DR. K UNITED MEDIA SYNDICATE
vard Medical School, and registered dietitian Kathy McManus, director of the Department of Nutrition for Harvard-affiliated Brigham and Women’s Hospital. They offered the following tips to keep meals and snacks healthy when
you’re in a hurry: • PLAN AHEAD. Plan out meals and snacks for the week. Make a list and go shopping. Then make time in your schedule to cook or prepare the foods. • COOK IN BATCHES. Cook extra food to save time later. You can do this with entire meals or with meal elements. For example, cook a large batch of brown rice, then portion out and freeze the extra. The rice reheats in the microwave in minutes. My wife and I do this a lot. Last night we had what my niece (when she was a child) called “Uncle’s
Famous Hamburgers.” I mixed my secret ingredients into the meat about six weeks ago, and froze six meals’ worth of patties — each meal two patties in its own zippered freezer bag. We’ll have them every week or two. Same thing with “Uncle’s Famous Spaghetti Sauce.” An hour on a Sunday after noon saves many hours down the road. • EAT NUTRIENTDENSE FOODS. Nutrientdense foods are the ones with the most vitamins and minerals and the fewest calories. T ry legumes (beans, lentils), dairy prod-
ucts (low-fat yogurt, eggs), avocados, leafy greens (kale, spinach), vegetables (Brussels sprouts, mushrooms, bell peppers), seeds (flax, pumpkin, sesame, sunflower), nuts, whole grains (barley, oats, quinoa, brown rice), fish and poultry. • TRY A SMOOTHIE. Toss as many ingredients as you like into a blender, and you’ll have a drink that can be used for a meal or a snack throughout the day. Plain yogurt and frozen berries and bananas are a good place to start. But smoothies don’t have to be fruit-based. Vegeta-

bles (think carrots, beets and spinach) make delicious smoothies as well. Don’t believe it? T ry it. (Still, I prefer fruit.) • KEEP SNACKS SIMPLE. Choose just one or two ingredients. Some satisfying and nutritious pairings include plain, nonfat Greek yogurt and a few nuts; a tablespoon of peanut butter and an apple; or chopped vegetables and a quarter-cup of hummus. Keep snacks packed in your pantry or refrigerator, ready to grab and go. See DR. K, Page A5
Important wellness conference Saturday LOCAL
Roswell Daily Record
If any of you veteran brothers and sisters, family members or veterans’ friends need help/vital information for PTSD or other combat-related health issues, this is a workshop you definitely want to attend! This Saturday, June 7 ( from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. — doors open at 7 a.m.), Roswell Convention/Civic Center, the NM Department of Veterans Services will present a free conference for veterans and family members to learn about Posttraumatic Stress Disorder and other combat-related behavioral issues. National Guard, Reserve and active-duty personnel spouses, family members and caregivers are also encouraged to attend. The innovative conference is presented by the New Mexico Department of Veterans Services in cooperation with the New Mexico Behavioral Health Collaborative, the New Mexico VA Health Care System (NMVAHCS), Presbyterian Medical Services (PMS), and the New Mexico National Guard. Learn about the latest in clinical treatment options utilized by the
VA Health Care System for treating combat-related behavioral issues. Also, learn how massage, yoga, chronic pain management, faith-based and other non-traditional therapies can be integrated with clinical therapy for treating combat-related behavioral issues. Representatives from the NMVAHCS, PMS’ Veteran and Family Support Services (VFSS) Program, the NMNG’s State Family/Yellow Ribbon Support Program—along with the Access to Recovery (ATR) program--will highlight the latest in proven clinical treatments and programs available for those within New Mexico’s military community. A presentation about NMVAHC-
S’ evidence based treatment for living with chronic pain will be offered—along with presentations on yoga and massage therapy showing how these complementary treatment modalities can be integrated with a prescribed clinical treatment plan for patients. Also scheduled to give a presentation is disabled Vietnam War veteran Allen B. Clark, a Silver Star and Purple Heart recipient and former longtime VA official who is now heavily involved as a lay minister who uses a faithbased approach for treating the traumas of combat. An integrative approach using clinical and non-clinical treatments for treating behavioral health issues is being used by more and more facilities nationwide, including the VA and its medical centers. The VA estimates up to 20 percent of veterans from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan may be suffering from PTSD—though the number could be higher because many may be undiagnosed due to a veteran’s unwillingness to seek

Cooperation and compromise, the lifeblood of a national democracy, become difficult if not impossible. The already-diminished public confidence in our national government and in our collective capacity is further depleted. No parent swells with pride at a child’s ambition to make politics her career. Public service, which deserves respect, is mocked. No, we do not “sell” our political candidates like we sell beer; it’s much worse and a lot more harmful.

Joyce will forever be in the memory of her loving sons, Keith C. Hicks and Daryl L. Hicks. She was proudly married and survived Kenneth Hicks. She is best remembered not only for the love and compassion she shared with family and friends but for her work in poetry and writings. She was a gifted woman and an accomplished one retiring from Public Service Utilities in Roswell, New Mexico, where she spent the majority of her married life. She loved to write poetry which described a life of love and devotion to her children and husband as well as her love of her Mother and life growing up on the family farm. She adored wearing the color purple, swimming, she loved reading, card playing and sharing her thoughts on books and she loved to scan numerous decorating magazines. She had a beautiful wardrobe as she loved coordinating fashion. Joyce was raised the youngest of five on a family far m in North Dakota. She developed strong opinions, intelligent and was independent, salt of the Earth woman. She loved her husband dearly and stated the loves of her life were her sons Keith and Daryl. They pay homage to her as she was the mother anyone would hope to have. She was also a devoted grandmother and loving friend and admired by all that knew her. Joyce is also sur-
vived by grandchildren who loved her dearly; David, Michael and Tyler Hicks and Carolyn Oshea. She is also survived by greatgrandchildren, Justin, Marie, Derek, Ryder, Cash and Presley and greatgreat-grandchildren, Jace, Abby, Grant, Kennedy, Dylan and Casey. Joyce (Mom) will be forever missed by her children, friends and family ... If a soul returns as an angel then surely she will be watching over.

He was a member of the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers. In 1989 he moved to St. Louis, MO, to be close to his family and worked as a machinist in the Aerospace industry, where he was much sought after as a highly skilled problem solver.
In 1996, he moved to Roswell, NM, where he worked at Nova Bus, then TMC until its closure. He then worked at McKay Oil until his health failed.

• Hearing problem? It could be wax, It could be that you need a listening device and/or you may need to see an Ear, Nose, Throat Specialist. • How often should you have a hearing test? It is best to have a test annually. If you cannot be tested once a year then please get tested every two years. • Why is it important to get a hearing evaluation? You need to be tested to have a reference point, so if you go on medication you can see if your loss is due to medications, or something else. It also shows how you should be fit if necessary.

Hearing loss can be from the work environment, or have been exposed to loud sounds repeatedly, or it could be a traumatic head injury. It could be from some of the medications you take.

What happens if you need hearing aids but you do not get or wear them?
• When and why should I wear hearing aids? Hearing aids are in use all day. If you do not wear your aids, your brain cannot hear sounds. This is how people lose their understanding. Some people don’t get hearing devices. Others know they have a problem but are in denial, or they don’t want anyone to know they wear hearing aids. The brain needs to hear sounds to recognize them. You should see your specialist at least once a month and have your ears checked, have your hearing aids deep cleaned, and make certain that you are hearing like you should, so that you may maintain your understanding.
buzzing of the ear. • Pro Active does not want anyone to stop their prescribed medication. It is very important that you take your list of medications, and talk with your physician before you discontinue your medicine. It is important to work with your Hearing Aid Specialist, your doctor, and/or your Ear, Nose, and Throat Doctor to be able to treat your tinnitus, or hearing loss. Some medications are necessary, but there may be an alternative your physician can prescribe. • How do I maintain my hearing aids? Your dispenser who prescribed your hearing devices needs to show you how to clean and store your aids, as well as advise how often you should come in. Pro Active will go over the information you need the most, then you should plan on coming on 3-4 appointments, to learn how to place them into your ear and how to best utilize what you have. We do not charge extra, if you need more time. • How long does a Hearing Aid last? They should last anywhere from 5-7 years but everyone is different. Please do not share your hearing aids and do not pass them
on to your family or friends. The reasons being, to not pass on an infection and of course every person is different and they need to be tested and fit for the frequencies they need. •If you have hearing devices but you dont wear them; Give Pro Active a call to set up an appointment for tests and all your needs. • Do you like helping others?

rt Sherman got his first glimpse of California Chrome in action in two weeks, and the trainer liked what he saw. Sherman arrived in New York on Monday afternoon and watched his Triple Crown contender gallop at Belmont Park on Tuesday morning. It was the first time Sherman had observed the chestnut colt since he captured the Preakness. “I thought he looked better now than he did after the Preakness,” Sherman said. “I couldn’t believe how much
weight he put on. Going on the Triple Crown trail, it’s kind of rough. He’s an amazing horse.” California Chrome will try for the first Triple Crown since Affirmed in 1978 on Saturday in the $1.5 million Belmont Stakes. The flashy 3-year-old with four white feet will be the

LOCAL SCHEDULE — WEDNESDAY, JUNE 4 — • Douglas at Roswell, 7 p.m. PECOS LEAGUE
When last season’s NBA Finals ended, San Antonio coach Gregg Popovich was all smiles. For a few minutes, that is. Popovich’s first order of business after the season’s final buzzer sounded in Miami was to go and embrace Erik Spoelstra, LeBron James and Dwyane Wade, giving everyone hearty hugs and of fering genuine words of congratulations after the Heat topped his Spurs in Game 7 of one of the most dramatic, thrilling championship series in league history. The pain of losing started setting in later, and lasted for months. But now, the dream scenario for San Antonio has arrived.

MLB: Cruz hits three-run jack, helps Rangers beat Orioles
ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Nelson Cruz hit a towering three-run homer in his return to Texas and the Baltimore Orioles won their third straight game, 8-3 over the Rangers on Tuesday night. Cruz drove the first pitch from Shawn Tolleson deep into the leftfield seats, capping a six-run Orioles outburst in the eighth. The slugger, who spent the previous eight seasons in Texas, is hitting .313 and leads the majors with 21 homers and 55 RBIs. Adam Jones matched a career high with four hits, including a homer off the right-field pole leading off the Baltimore fourth. Rookie catcher Caleb Johnson had a tiebreaking RBI double in the eighth. Brian Matusz (2-1) went 1 2 ⁄ 3 innings in relief of Ubaldo Jimenez, who held Texas to one run and four hits while striking out five over 5 2⁄3 innings. Alexi Ogando (2-3), the second Texas reliever, got a popup to start the eighth before allowing three straight Orioles to reach.
Athletics 5, Yankees 2 NEW YORK (AP) — Brandon Moss hit his second homer of the game leading off the 10th inning, and Oakland rallied for the road win. Returning to the lineup after missing two games with a strained right calf, Moss drilled a full-count pitch from Adam Warren (1-3) into the second deck down the right-field line for his 15th homer. That gave the AL West-leading A’s their first lead in a game that was delayed more than an hour at the start by rain. Dan Otero (5-1) pitched an inning and Sean Doolittle finished off the A’s fourth straight win with a perfect 10th for his sixth save. Mark Teixeira hit his 10th homer for the Yankees.
Twins 6, Brewers 4 MILWAUKEE (AP) — Josh Willingham hit a three-run homer and Minnesota beat Milwaukee in a game delayed when a fan fell into the Brewers’ bullpen. The game was held up at the start of the eighth inning after the man fell. He was carried on a stretcher out of the bullpen in

Willingham connected in the third off Yovani Gallardo (3-4) for a 4-1 lead. Samuel Deduno (2-3) got the win and Glen Perkins earned his 15th save. Royals 8, Cardinals 7 ST. LOUIS (AP) — Eric Hosmer hit a tiebreaking single off closer Trevor Rosenthal in the ninth inning and Kansas City earned its second straight road victory in the four-game, two-city series. Rookie Kolten Wong’s first career home run was a grand slam in the second that ended the Cardinals’ 20-inning scoreless drought and gave them an early four-run cushion. The defending National League champions finished a dismal 2-7 homestand when their pitchers faltered. Peter Bourjos’ 422-foot homer put the Cardinals ahead 7-6 in the sixth. Alcides Escobar’s bloop RBI single off Pat Neshek tied it in the eighth. Omar Infante doubled off Rosenthal (0-3) with one out in the ninth ahead of Hosmer’s hit. Wade Davis (5-1) got the win and Greg Holland worked the ninth for his 16th save in 17 chances.
Blue Jays 5, Tigers 3 DETROIT (AP) — Brett Lawrie’s three-run homer highlighted a big burst for Toronto. After eight scoreless innings between the AL East and AL Central leaders, both bullpens came unglued in the ninth. The Blue Jays broke through against Joe Nathan (2-2). J.D. Martinez hit a three-run homer with two outs in the ninth for the T igers. Casey Janssen came on and struck out Don Kelly for his ninth save in 10 chances. Detroit’s Anibal Sanchez and Toronto’s Drew Hutchison each pitched seven impressive innings. Dustin McGowan (3-2) worked the eighth for the win.

Nationals 7, Phillies 0 WASHINGTON (AP) — Jordan Zimmermann rebounded from a mini-slump to throw eight crisp innings for Washington, and Ryan Zimmerman hit a pair of doubles and handled two chances with aplomb in his debut in left field. Zimmermann (4-2) allowed five hits and struck out four, recovering well from four middling starts that had raised his usually impeccable ERA to 4.07. He got all the support he needed when the Nationals scored three in the third inning off David Buchanan (1-2), making his third career start. Zimmerman went 2 for 4 with one RBI after being reinstated before the game following 44 games on the disabled list with a broken right thumb.
Reds 8, Giants 3 CINCINNATI (AP) — Devin Mesoraco hit a two-run homer and Jay Bruce emerged from a slump by driving in a pair of runs, leading Cincinnati to a seasonhigh fourth straight win. Mesoraco hit his ninth homer off Tim Lincecum (4-5), who has beaten the Reds during the playoffs but never during the regular season. Bruce, who spent time on the disabled list following surgery for torn knee cartilage, knocked in his first run since April 25. Homer Bailey (6-3) went six innings in his first game against the Giants since his no-hitter against them last July 2 at Great American Ball Park. The righthander gave up three runs and five hits, including Hunter Pence’s homer, double and single. Astros 7, Angels 2 HOUSTON (AP) — Jon Singleton homered in his major league debut for Houston. Jason Castro and Robbie Grossman drove in two runs apiece as the Astros took the lead with a five-run third inning. The Angels were done in by C.J. Wilson’s lack of control. Wilson (65) walked a season-high five batters, including four in the third, in just 2 2⁄3 innings. Josh Hamilton had a solo
homer in the eighth inning in his return from the disabled list after breaking his left thumb on April 8. Fellow Angels outfielder Mike Trout was back after missing two games with a stiff back, but left in the second inning with more back trouble. Collin Cowgill replaced Trout and homered in the eighth. Houston starter Collin McHugh (4-3) allowed two hits over five scoreless innings to lower his ERA to 2.52.
Mets 2, Cubs 1 CHICAGO (AP) — Chris Coghlan homered in the eighth and Nate Schierholtz hit a game-ending RBI single for the Cubs. Curtis Granderson had three hits for the Mets and drove in their run with a sacrifice fly in the first inning. The Mets failed to win a season-high four straight games. Hector Rondon (1-1) pitched a scoreless ninth for the win. Anthony Rizzo led off the bottom of the ninth with a single off Scott Rice (1-2). After New York third baseman David Wright was unable to turn a hard-hit grounder into a double play, Schierholtz pulled a liner into the right-field corner.
Diamondbacks 4, Rockies 2 DENVER (AP) — Nick Evans and Chris Owings hit back-toback homers for Arizona, and rookie Chase Anderson won his fourth straight start. Evans’ solo shot in the fourth was his first homer since Sept. 3, 2011, when he was with the New York Mets. Four pitches later, Owings hit another off Jorge De La Rosa (6-4). Anderson (4-0) didn’t overpower the Rockies so much as keep them guessing, throwing six effective innings in his longest outing since he was recalled from TripleA Reno on May 6. He becomes the fifth rookie since 1998 to win his opening four starts. Addison Reed pitched a wobbly ninth — surrendering a solo homer to Troy Tulowitzki — for his 15th save.

Marino says he’s withdrawing from concussion suit
MIAMI (AP) — Dan Marino says he inadvertently became a plaintiff in a concussion lawsuit against the NFL and is withdrawing immediately. The Hall of Fame quarterback said he doesn’t suffer any effects from head injuries. “Within the last year I authorized a claim to be filed on my behalf, just in case I need-
had three hits, including a tiebreaking two-run homer in the seventh inning that helped Seattle rally for its fourth straight win. The Braves led 4-0 in the first inning and 5-2 in the second before falling to the Mariners’ comeback. Buck’s first homer of the season came off Alex Wood (56). The Turner Field air, normally thick with humidity, was unusually dry and that helped the teams combine for four homers. Seattle pinch-hitter Stefen Romero hit a three-run homer in the fourth that tied it at 5. Evan Gattis and B.J. Upton homered for the Braves. Dominic Leone (2-0) had four strikeouts in two perfect innings for the win. Indians 5, Red Sox 3 CLEVELAND (AP) — Michael Bourn hit a tiebreaking two-run double in the seventh inning, helping Cleveland to its seasonhigh fifth straight win. Bourn’s double off Andrew Miller sent the Red Sox to their second straight loss after winning seven consecutive games. Nick Hagadone (1-0) struck out three in 1 1⁄3 innings. Cody Allen recorded the final four outs for his fifth save, striking out former Indians All-Star Grady Sizemore to end the game. Jake Peavy (1-3) allowed five runs in 6 1⁄3 innings for Boston. The right-hander, who hasn’t won since April 25, gave up three runs in the first, but held the Indians scoreless until the seventh. Marlins 1, Rays 0 MIAMI (AP) — Henderson Alvarez needed only 88 pitches to toss an eight-hitter for his third shutout this year, and the Miami Marlins beat Tampa Bay Tuesday, sending the reeling Rays home after a winless eight-game trip. The only run scored was when Christian Yelich walked on a fullcount pitch with two out and the bases loaded in the fifth inning. Alvarez (3-3) didn’t allow a run for the third start in a row, a stretch covering 19 innings. He retired the last five batters to close out the win in 2 hours, 10 minutes.
ed future medical coverage to protect me and my family in the event I later suffered from the effects of head trauma,” Marino, 52, said in a statement Tuesday. “I did not realize I would be automatically listed as a plaintiff. ... I have made the decision it is not necessary for me to be part of any claims or this lawsuit, and therefore I am withdrawing as a plaintiff.” Marino’s withdrawal costs the litigants a high-profile plaintiff. He was by far the bestknown of 15 former players who filed a lawsuit in federal court in Philadelphia last week. They joined more than 4,800 others who allege the NFL misled players about the long-term dangers of concussions. The league has denied those allegations. Marino spent his entire 17-year career with the Miami Dolphins and retired as the most prolific passer in NFL history. He worked as an analyst for CBS from 2002 to 2013 but wasn’t retained for this season.

He sent California Chrome to New York in the care of Alan Sherman, his son and assistant trainer. The Belmont will be the colt’s third demanding race in a short fiveweek span. “He’s doing outstanding,” Alan Sherman said. “I couldn’t ask for anything more right now.

got basically five full days between games to get healthy and prepare. It is, without question, everything the Spurs could have wanted. “We know what we’re going against,” said Spurs guard Tony Parker, who added that he has great respect for what the Heat have done in this fouryear run. “It’s a great challenge.” There are so many things that would seem like a distinct San Antonio advantage right now. First, while everyone’s better at home, the Spurs dominate in San Antonio, winning 103 times in their last 123 games there. Over the past four seasons, the Spurs are also 25-5 when having three or more days between games. Maybe most importantly, having nearly a week between the end of the Western Conference finals and the start of the NBA Finals gives Parker plenty of time to get his ailing left ankle ready to go for Game 1. “I’ll do my best,” said Parker, who didn’t practice Tuesday but is hoping to play in the series opener, as the Heat expect he will. This is San Antonio’s sixth trip to the NBA Finals. The Spurs won it all in 1999, 2003, 2005 and 2007, the last title in that run coming when San Antonio swept a Cleveland team that featured a young LeBron James making his debut on the league’s biggest stage. James is no finals apprentice anymore. He’s been to the title round three times since, winning the last two. And James is quick to point out that the Spurs aren’t the only team fueled by hunger in this championship round. “Both teams have motivating factors,” James said. “They have a motivating factor. We have our own.” Losing the finals is one thing. Losing the way the Spurs did last

It’s not fraught with as much drama as the Derby, where breaking from an extreme inside or outside post in a 19- or 20-horse field can quickly take a horse out of contention. The Belmont, the longest of the Triple Crown races, is contested over a track with wide sweeping
Gators win national softball title
June, that’s something else. Forget Game 7 for a moment. Game 6 will be replayed for as long as there are replays, unforgettable for both how the Heat rallied and how the Spurs collapsed. A 10-point lead going into the fourth quarter was erased, in part because Mike Miller scored three points on one shot while wearing one shoe. And a five-point lead with 28.2 seconds left, well, you know the rest. Manu Ginobili misses a free throw. James makes a 3-pointer. Kawhi Leonard makes one of two free throws. James misses a 3-pointer. Chris Bosh out jumps Ginobili for the rebound. Ray Allen started backpedaling to the right corner, hoping for a chance. ABC’s Mike Breen described what happened next like this: “Rebound Bosh ... back out to Allen ... his 3pointer ... BANG!!! Tie game!” The Heat went on to win in overtime that night, then found a way to win Game 7 and the title, 95-88. When this season began, Popovich started camp by showing his team Games 6 and 7, painful as it was. “I try to learn something every game I watch,” Popovich said. “That’s what we do.” And while there were plenty of teams that looked like contenders this season, neither club was surprised that the end result is the first NBA Finals rematch since 1998. “We got wined and dined with some of the other teams that kind of popped up and showed greatness throughout the year,” Allen said. “The Clippers looked great. OKC, they had their issues and then they popped up. Memphis looked good at the end of the year. Indiana was always hovering. But if you go back to the beginning of the year, most people said the same thing. Pop knew how to manage his team to get to this point. Same thing with us.” In other words, maybe Spurs-Heat II was meant to be. “It was,” Allen said.
