PECOS (AP) — Two massive columns of smoke hovered over norther n New Mexico on Tuesday as more than 1,100 firefighters worked to build lines across rugged mountainsides and keep flames from pushing closer to summer homes and cabins. Haze from the fires drifted across New Mexico, leading residents to worry that the state might be in for a third consecutive record-breaking fire season. Fire managers and forecasters said conditions are
worse than during previous years. Sparked by a downed power line, the Tres Lagunas Fire north of Pecos was 7 percent contained after charring more than 13 square miles in Santa Fe National Forest. Crews were concentrating efforts on Holy Ghost Canyon, where the flames of an over night spot fire had raced through a few dozen acres. No structures have burned, but an evacuation

OSU PRES RETIRES
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Ohio State University President Gordon Gee abruptly announced his retirement Tuesday after he came under fire for jokingly referring to “those damn Catholics” at Notre Dame and poking fun at the academic quality of other schools. The remarks were first reported last week by The Associated Press, and Ohio State at the time called them unacceptable and said it had placed Gee on a “remediation plan” to change his behavior. - PAGE B1

Drug-scare numbers grow nationally IRS spent
JILL MCLAUGHLIN RECORD STAFF WRITER The Centers for Disease Control has confirmed 24 patients in four states reported infections after being injected with the medication implicated in a federal investigation and recall. Roswell Family Clinic on North Main Street was the only medical facility to receive the drug in New Mexico and no adverse reactions were reported from clinic patients, officials reported. State health department officials confirmed only 32 patients received a shot of the steroid medication from the suspicious batch, though 53 in all were administered a dose of the drug recently. “The Roswell clinic had two lots of meds from the pharmacy,” said New Mexico Department of Health spokesman David Morgan Tuesday. “Only the one they had administered to the 32 was felt to be contaminated and was part of the recall.” No reports of meningitis or other life-threatening infections were reported. The drug—used to treat inflamma-
tion, asthma, allergic reactions, joint and upper respiratory issues—was produced by Main Street Family Pharmacy in Newbern, Tenn. The company voluntarily issued a recall of its entire stock of sterile products manufactured after Dec. 6, 2012, following initial reports that seven patients suffered skin abscesses at injection sites. Main Street is now undergoing a federal investigation into its manufacturing processes. Main Street spokesman Joe Grillo said the company is doing everything possible to ensure that all potentially affected compounded medicines are recalled and no longer used by consumers or health care providers. “We’re trying to do everything in our power to cooperate,” Grillo told the Record. “It’s still inconclusive according to the FDA.” The 24 patients, in Arkansas, Florida, Illinois and North Carolina, were injected with a compound that included the drug methylprednisolone acetate, the same medication involved in the deaths of more than 55 people last year. However, the medication was not
compounded or distributed by the same manufacturer. The Main Street batch was released to 13 states—Florida, Illinois, Mississippi, New Mexico, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Arkansas, Kentucky, North Carolina, California, Louisiana and Alabama. The majority of affected patients developed skin and soft tissue infections at the injection site, according to the CDC. “It’s still inconclusive as to where this medicine is the cause,” Grillo said. “It’s fair to say it’s suspected, but it’s not conclusive.” The suspected batch of medication continues to be located and returned, he said. Any Roswell Family Care patients with concerns can call 575-6225705. The FDA encourages health care providers and consumers to report adverse events or quality problems experienced with the use of any Main Street products to the FDA's MedWatch Adverse Event Reporting program at www.fda.gov/medwatch/report.htm

PARIS (AP) — France said Tuesday it has confirmed that the nerve gas sarin was used “multiple times and in a localized way” in Syria, including at least once by the regime. It was the most specific claim by any Western power about chemical weapons attacks in the 27-month-old conflict. Britain later said that tests it conducted on samples taken from Syria also were positive for sarin. The back-to-back announcements left many questions unanswered, highlighting the difficulties of confirming from a distance whether combatants in Syria have crossed the “red line” set by President Barack Obama. The regime of Syrian President Bashar Assad has refused to allow U.N. investigators into the country. The French and British findings, based on See SYRIA, Page A3

Judge accepts insanity plea in Colo. shooting case
CENTENNIAL, Colo. (AP) — A judge accepted James Holmes’ long-awaited plea of not guilty by reason of insanity Tuesday and ordered him to undergo a mental evaluation — an examination that could be a decisive factor in whether the Colorado theater shooting suspect is convicted and sentenced to die. The judge also granted prosecutors access to a hotly contested notebook that Holmes sent to a psychiatrist shortly before the July 20 rampage, which left 12 people dead and 70 injured in a bloody, bulletriddled movie theater in suburban Denver. Taken together, the three developments marked a major step forward in the 10-month-old case, which at times has inched along through thickets of legal arguments or veered off on tangents. Holmes faces more than 160 counts of murder and attempted murder, and prosecutors are seeking the death penalty. He will now be examined by the Colorado Mental Health Institute in Pueblo, but it’s not certain when the evaluation will begin or how long it will take. Hospital officials have said that before they meet with Holmes, they want to review evidence in the case, which prosecutors said totals nearly 40,000 pages. Judge Carlos Samour Jr. set a tentative date of Aug.
Mega Millions 10-11-12-20-55 Mega Ball: 19
2 for the exam to be complete but said he would push that back if hospital officials request more time. Samour indicated he still hopes to begin Holmes’ trial in February. Holmes, 25, shuffled into court with his wrists and ankles shackled, wearing a long, bushy beard and dark, curly hair that was slicked back. Samour read Holmes a five-page list of consequences of the insanity plea and asked if he had any questions. “No,” Holmes answered in a clear, firm voice. It was only the second time since his arrest that he has spoken in court, other than occasional whispered exchanges with his attorneys. The findings of the mental evaluation will become evidence in Homes’ trial, but they are not the final word on whether he was legally insane at the time of the shootings. The jurors
will determine that. If their verdict is not guilty by reason of insanity, Holmes would be committed to the Mental Health Institute indefinitely. He could theoretically be released one day if doctors determine his sanity has been restored, but that is considered unlikely. If their verdict is guilty, jurors would then decide whether Holmes will be executed or spend the rest of his life in prison without the possibility of parole. Colorado law defines insanity as the inability to distinguish right from wrong caused by a diseased or defective mind. Marcus Weaver, who was wounded and lost his friend Rebecca Wingo in the shooting, doesn’t believe Holmes is insane but is grateful the case is moving forward. “As we’ve seen evidence and seen the case unfold, it’s become more evident that Mr. Holmes did what he did, and it had nothing to do with his mental state,” he said. The insanity plea is widely seen as Holmes’ best chance of avoiding execution, but his lawyers delayed it for weeks, saying Colorado’s laws on the insanity plea and the death penalty could work in combination to violate his constitutional rights. The judge overruled their objections last week, but on Tuesday he conceded
one point: Neither Holmes nor his lawyers had to sign a statement or say in court that they understood the five-page list of consequences of the insanity plea. Samour originally planned to require Holmes and the defense to acknowledge they understood those consequences before he accepted the plea. But Samour said Tuesday he had deter mined that wasn’t required by law. Holmes needed Samour’s approval to enter the insanity plea because a judge had entered a standard not guilty plea on Holmes’ behalf in March. Prosecutors first sought access to the notebook when its existence was made public days after the shooting. Holmes had mailed it to Dr. Lynn Fenton, a University of Colorado, Denver psychiatrist who had treated Holmes. Holmes had been a graduate student in neuroscience at the university. The notebook’s contents have never been officially made public, but media reports have said it contains drawings depicting violence. The defense argued the notebook was protected by doctor -patient privilege. But Samour ruled Tuesday that under Colorado law, Holmes waived that privilege when he entered the insanity plea.

order remained in place for more than 140 homes in the area and an emergency closure was issued for the entire Pecos and Las Vegas ranger district, including the Pecos Wilderness. Fire information officer Gerry Perry said officials were monitoring conditions to determine when residents would be allowed to return. “We’re prepared for anything, and we’re optimistic we’ll be able to turn the corner on this thing,” Perry said. “But the weather certainly is not helping us and added to that is the significant period of drought that this area has endured.” Some residents stayed behind, including Scott Rice and his son, Connor. They were pumping water from the Pecos River to hose down areas near their barn and house. Kay Rice told The New Mexican that said she wasn’t worried about her husband and son. “They are smart enough to know when to drop the hose and leave,” she said. “But I also knew my husband wasn’t going to leave. He would do what he had to do to stay and defend the house. “This isn’t our second or third home,” she added. “This is where we live. We raised our kids there.” To the west, in the Jemez Mountains, firefighters were also dealing with hot, dry and windy weather as they battled the Thompson Ridge Fire. It has burned about 7 square miles of rugged territory covered by conifer and ponderosa pine. Homes in the Thompson Valley, Rancho de la Cueva and Elk Valley areas remained under evacuation orders. The fire was sparked by a downed power line owned by the Jemez Mountains Electric Co-op. The utility is already facing at least two lawsuits stemming from the 2011 Las Conchas Fire that ignited when a tree fell onto a power line.

stayed four nights in a room that regularly goes for $1,499. A total of 132 IRS officials received room upgrades at the conference in 2010 in Anaheim, Calif., according to a report by J. Russell George, the T reasury Department inspector general for tax administration. The tax agency paid a flat daily fee of $135 per hotel room, the report said, but the upgrades were part of a package deal that added to the overall cost of the conference. The report was made public on the same day leaders of six conservative groups testified at a congressional hearing, where they told lawmakers they had endured abuse from IRS agents as they spent years trying to qualify for tax-exempt status. In often-emotional testimony, the conservatives described IRS demands for details about employees’ and group officials’ political activities and backgrounds, for comments they’d posted on websites, for videos of meetings and information

Health officials issue wildfire smoke advisory SANTA FE (AP) — State health officials have issued an advisory for those areas of northern New Mexico that are affected by smoke from two wildfires. The state Department of Health says the communities that are most affected include Pecos, Jemez Springs and La Cueva. Visibility could be reduced to less than 3 miles and potentially unhealthy conditions could occur overnight and into the early morning. Health Secretary Retta Ward says the smoke can irritate a person’s eyes and respiratory system as well as intensify chronic heart and lung problems. Officials are urging people who are sensitive to the smoke — including pregnant women, the elderly and young children — to limit their time outdoors. Any time visibility drops under 5 miles, officials say air quality is considered unhealthy for sensitive groups.
“This isn’t the first or the last time that this has happened,” Valerie Espinoza, vice-chair of the state Public Regulation Commission, told the Albuquerque Journal. “I think we can do more to ensure that we have safe electrical lines and that the co-ops have the resources they need to be better prepared to do their jobs.” Utility officials said changing regulations to make it easier to widen rights of way and educating property owners about keeping trees from growing into power lines could ease the problem.
on whether speakers at such sessions voiced political views. Some said it took three years to get their taxexempt status; others said they were still waiting. “I’m a born-free American woman,” Becky Gerritson, president of the Wetumpka Tea Party of Alabama, tearfully told the lawmakers. “I’m telling my government, ‘You’ve forgotten your place.”’ Federal regulations say that tax-exempt social welfare organizations can engage in some political activity but the activity cannot be their primary mission. It is up to the IRS to make that determination of their level of political activity, and some Democrats at Tuesday’s House Ways and Means Committee hearing noted that some liberal groups also have had a hard time winning taxexempt status from the IRS. However, revelations about IRS agents improperly targeting tea party and other groups have led to investigations by three congressional committees and the Justice Department. One top IRS official was forced to resign, another retired and a third was placed on paid administrative leave.
samples taken from Syria, came hours after a U.N. team said it had “reasonable grounds” to suspect small-scale use of toxic chemicals in at least four attacks in March and April. The U.N. probe was conducted from outside Syria’s borders, based on interviews with doctors and witnesses of purported attacks and a review of amateur videos from Syria. The team said solid evidence will remain elusive until inspectors can collect samples from victims directly or from the sites of alleged attacks. Some experts cautioned that the type of evidence currently available to investigators — videos, witness reports and physiological samples of uncertain origin — leaves wide doubts. At the same time, forensic evidence of alleged chemical weapons use is fading away with time, and the longer U.N. inspectors are kept out of Syria, the harder it will be to collect conclusive proof, they said. Syria is suspected of having one of the world’s largest chemical weapons arsenals, including mustard and nerve gas, such as sarin. In recent weeks, the regime and those trying to topple Assad have increasingly used accusations of chemical weapons as a propaganda tool, but have offered no solid proof.
Tuesday’s report by the inspector general suggests the agency has struggled with management issues beyond the division that handles tax-exempt applications. According to the report, expensive employee conferences were approved with few restraints or safeguards until new rules were imposed in 2011. In all, the IRS held 225 employee conferences from 2010 through 2012, at a total cost of $49 million, the report said. The Anaheim conference was the most expensive, but others were costly, too. In 2010, the agency held a conference in Philadelphia that cost $2.9 million, one in San Diego that cost $1.2 million and another in Atlanta that also cost $1.2 million. All of these conferences would violate new rules imposed by the White House budget of fice in 2012 that cap expenses for a single conference at $500,000. In 2010 alone, the IRS had 13 conferences that cost more than that. By comparison, the General Services Administration was widely criticized for a 2010 conference in Las Vegas that cost $823,000.
In the West, meanwhile, the lack of certainty about such allegations is linked to a high stakes political debate over whether the U.S. should get more involved in the Syria conflict, including by arming those fighting Assad. Obama has been reluctant to send weapons to the Syrian rebels, in part because of the presence of Islamic militants among them. Obama has warned that the use of chemical weapons or their transfer to a terrorist group would cross a “red line,” hinting at forceful intervention in such an event. Yet he has insisted on a high level of proof, including a “chain of custody,” that can only come from on-site investigations currently being blocked by the regime. In Tuesday’s announcement about sarin, French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius said his government had analyzed several samples, including some brought back from Syria by reporters from the Le Monde newspaper. He said that there was “no doubt” that at least in one case, the regime and its allies were responsible for the attack. “We have integrally traced the chain, from the attack, to the moment people were killed, to when the samples were taken and analyzed,” Fabius told the TV station France 2. He said a line was crossed and that “all options are on the table,” including intervening “militarily where the gas is produced or stored.”

Only four presidents have been invited to France for D-Day SANTA FE — At this time last year, President Barack Obama was facing severe criticism for showing a lack of patriotism by not attending the commemoration ceremonies at Normandy on DDay. Let’s hope that by now all the people who were howling last year are squared away on how D-Day is commemorated in France. If not, the following information may be helpful. President Obama was accused of being the first president in 70 years not to attend the D-Day ceremonies. Obama cleared that up by noting that he indeed attended D-Day ceremonies his first year in office and caused quite a stir when French President Nicolas Sarkozy invited only Obama and not Queen Elizabeth. The queen made a big deal out of it because she is the only head of state, who saw service during World War II. She was a mechanic and truck driver. The general con-
INSIDE THE CAPITOL
sensus was that Sarkozy wanted Obama to himself all that day. But then the refrain began that Obama did not attend any of the three commemorations since then and that every other U.S. president had attended them all. That one didn’t hold water either. International protocol holds that heads of state do not enter another country unless invited by that country’s head of state. That’s something I hadn’t realized. Evidently D-Day is celebrated in every little town and village near the Normandy beaches. National ceremonies are held only once every 10 years. That began only in 1984. President Ronald Reagan

was invited and he attended. He wasn’t invited the remaining years of his term. And he didn’t attend. Bill Clinton was invited in 1994 and attended. George W. Bush was invited in 2004 and he attended. In 2009, the veterans of the Normandy landing petitioned President Sarkozy to hold a 65th national celebration because there were so few D-Day veterans still living. Sarkozy obliged. Obama was invited and went. So, four U.S. presidents have been invited to the Normandy events and all four have gone — including President Obama. No other U.S. president has gone and no one has gone more than once. This doesn’t mean, however, that no U.S. official has been to Normandy on other D-Days. The United States has a visitors center at the U.S. cemetery where 9,387 U.S. war dead are buried. Then-U.S. Defense Secretary Robert Gates presided over the
dedication in 2007. Participation by Germany has been a sore point. In 2004, German Chancellor Helmut Kohl asked to be invited as a show of total European unity. His request was denied. Germany tries hard to be a good neighbor in Europe. Germans avoid any shows of patriotism for fear of appearing militant. They have adopted a deep streak of pacifism opposing all wars. This led to major disagreements when the United States and Britain entered into wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. Germany argued that their nation owes it to history to stress alternatives to war. We and our allies could not understand how Germans could allow people to be sent to prison camps and be killed. The Germans answer that they were at war and that the people imprisoned were said to be security risks. America has found it difficult to
argue with that reasoning because our nation was doing the same with the Japanese, Italians and some Germans. The difference was that we weren’t exterminating our prisoners. Neither side asked much about the prisoners once they were in camps. Finally, in 2009, the 65th anniversary of D-Day, German leaders were invited. D-Day has never been a big deal in the United States. It is sandwiched in between Memorial Day, Flag Day, Juneteenth and July 4th. The American culture isn’t especially celebration-oriented. We seem more work-oriented. So even though we took two of the five Normandy beaches, Utah and Omaha, we mainly leave it to the movies to carry the message that we won the war single-handily.

Keep card check on back burner
Big Labor gave Barack Obama a big boost. When Obama won re-election, labor chief Richard Trumka made a big boast: Obama will get done what he failed to do in the first term, which is to get card check to become the law of the land. Card check was a bad idea in the first term and equally bad now. Given the administration’s current distractions with national security concerns and scandals, card check is on the back burner. It should stay there. In fact, it should be removed from the stove and put in the garbage disposal. Card check would allow labor activists to intimidate workers into approving union representation. It would replace the secret ballot method that’s cherished in regular elections but despised by Trumka and other labor bosses. “Card checks and getting rid of the secret ballot is the holy grail of union organizing,” Heritage Foundation fellow James Sherk told Newsmax, a conservative news and opinion outlet. Shortly after Obama’s re-election last November, Trumka predicted card check would become law during the second term. But the AFL-CIO chief can’t deny that the best chance for card check died when Republicans took over the House of Representatives two years earlier. The only chance it has legislatively in the second term is a Democratic takeover of Congress, as well as support from moderate Democrats. In other words, there isn’t much of a chance the way it looks now. We ascribe Trumka’s optimism about card check as post-election puffery — not unlike the kind Obama and his liberal supporters displayed about many issues. This optimism has waned as Obama’s presidency sputters. His inability to win on big-ticket issues such as gun control gives unions little reason to hope card check will clear the current Congress. Unions believe they’re owed by Democrats for the $400 million they pumped into the 2012 elections. Labor has been taking a number of hits recently, including a judicial repudiation of recess appointments Obama made to the National Labor Relations Board. Michigan lawmakers opted to join the ranks of right-to-work states. Wisconsin voters rejected an attempt to punish Republican Gov. Scott Walker for reining in the excessive power enjoyed by public sector workers. Nationwide, union membership fell from 11.8 percent in 2011 to 11.3 percent in 2012, the lowest level since 1916. No wonder Trumka and fellow labor bosses want Washington to endorse the heavyhanded card check proposal: It would make it so much easier to organize workers by allowing organizers to personally contact workers leaning against certification. This contact could take an ugly turn. A balanced approach is to not overly restrict union participation but also not to stack the deck in favor of unions. Not even labor bosses can deny that unions have a history of violence and intimidation. Yes, that once could have been said about the management side, but not so much anymore. The secret ballot mitigates the intimidation factor. Card check would elevate it. Guest Editorial The Colorado Springs Gazette DEAR DOCTOR K: In a previous column you wrote about the importance of balance exercises as we age. But why does our balance get worse as we get older? DEAR READER: A number of changes that come with aging can affect our balance. — Inside our ears is a balance center called the vestibular system that detects where our body is in space. Are we upright or lying flat; are we standing on our feet or performing a handstand? The vestibular system is connected to centers in the brain that also control our balance. When the vestibular system and brain deter mine that we’r e about to fall over, the brain
Learning how to spell success for future generations The annual ritual known as the Scripps National Spelling Bee came and went last week with kids spelling words that, I suspect, many with graduate degrees couldn’t spell. The winner was Arvind Mahankali, a 13-year -old eighth-grader from Bayside Hills, N.Y. Mahankali is the first boy to win the title since 2008. There is a lesson to be learned from the success of these young people, including the ones who came close to winning but didn’t. It is the value of persistence. Mahankali won this year by spelling the German word “knaidel.” He lost the bee three times before and

directs the body to take corrective action. Maybe we twist back upright so we don’t fall. Maybe we’re too far off center to avoid falling, so our arms and hands stretch out to brace our fall. As we age, cells in the vestibular system die off. This affects how accurately we detect our position in space. That, in turn, affects our ability to correct our

position. For example, if we start to tilt to the right and the vestibular system doesn’t detect this quickly, it becomes harder for the brain to prevent falling to the right. — Our sight, the ability to focus and see things clearly, diminishes with age. So do depth perception, night vision and sensitivity to contrast. Eye problems can impair, blur or distort vision. The loss of these visual cues compromises balance. Corrective lenses or surgery may help. — Blood pr essur e can dip suddenly when you stand up, causing dizziness, lightheadedness, blurry vision, even fainting.

tors of the telephone, airplane and motorcar refused to quit after repeated failures. Regardless of one’s background or circumstances, persistence can make any life better. My favorite lesson on persistence comes from a 2006 film called “Akeelah and the Bee.” The movie is about an 11year -old girl (wonderfully played by Keke Palmer). Akeelah attends a middle school in the Crenshaw area of Los Angeles. The school is a failure factory and so devoid of resources it can’t afford doors on bathroom stalls. Akeelah’s father was murdered; her mother (played by Angela Bassett), works as a nurse and struggles

If you start to trip, power helps you react swiftly. Exercise can help you rebuild strength and power, or at least slow the pace of decline. — Our reflexes and coordination slow with age. Thus, you may be more likely to stumble — and take mor e time to r eact when you do. Many health pr oblems can inter fer e with balance. They include, but are not limited to, arthritis, stroke, Parkinson’s disease and multiple sclerosis. Medications may also increase your risk of falls. They can

The school’s principal introduces her to a spelling coach, brilliantly played by Laurence Fishburne. Akeelah wins her school’s spelling bee and goes on to the next level, pitting her against children unlike herself and forcing her into an unfamiliar world. Many of Akeelah’s friends accuse her of being a “brainiac” which, along with the charge of “acting white,” discourages her from

cause blurred vision, dizziness, lightheadedness and drowsiness. Some medications may damage the inner ear, spurring balance disorders. Along with r egular aer obic exercise and weight training, balance exercises are important as we get older. Such exercises really can help you improve your balance. I’ve posted some of these simple exercises before, but I think it’s worthwhile to highlight them again. You can find them on my website, AskDoctorK.com.

In-person care versus being ‘seen’ by a screen; May’s ‘Taps’ Roswell Daily Record
Over the past year or so, whenever the desperate request for critically needed local VA health care in the form of emergency care or urgent care is made by local veterans, a favorite/typical response (to avoid taking action on the problem) was, “we are presently using and increasing services for tele-med health care delivery to rural areas.” Our congressional representatives are told by the Albuquerque VA this will resolve our problems, and so they pass that along to local, rural veterans as the problem resolution. Sadly, that is not — let me repeat — that is not going to solve our rural health care problem. Let me be clear. I consider the Albuquerque VA telemedicine program an excellent health care delivery system, and the professionals providing that service to be excellent medical providers as well as very caring professional individuals. I have experienced this firsthand. However, the tele-med system cannot provide emergency medical care or urgent medical care desperately needed by the southeastern New Mexico veterans. It is an excellent system to provide eye/retinal examinations and care, cardiac monitoring for heart patients, diabetic monitoring for diabetics, psychiatric counseling for mental health screening and treatment, as well as certain other specialty care medical delivery. It cannot, however, be there for patients needing non-specialty, immediate health care attention. Here is an example where telemedicine does not solve the problem. Veteran A is running a fever of 102°, his
throat is sore and he has a really painful earache. He is throwing up constantly and has a tremendous pain in his abdomen. He does not use tele-med services for special medical care, so he isn’t on the telemedicine “radar.” Besides, none of their services could really assist him medically, other than to advise him to go to the emergency room. This is the same advice being given by the Artesia Community Based Outpatient Clinic, currently. When a veteran follows that advice, many times he or she finds the VA will not pay for the visit. The CBOC has no plan for urgent care or emergency care at their facility, so the only alternative is for the veteran to drive six hours round trip with a 102° temperature, severe pain in their head and/or abdomen as well as throwing up all the way. We treat our animals and illegal aliens with much better care and respect. There are hundreds of other scenarios that show how tele-med cannot solve urgent care/emergency care problems. Taos recently had the same problem, which rural care resolved. An extended or outreach clinic was established, even though Roswell was denied “a fix” at the same time.
Roswell has more veterans and a longer drive to the nearest full-service CBOC. Taos veterans have a significantly shorter drive to the Albuquerque VA Medical Center. Why was Taos approved and Roswell (once again) shot down? Pure politics! I sincerely wonder if Roswell vets (and citizens in general) are ever going to get angry enough to “hire” (elect) representatives who will stop this lunacy found in southeast New Mexico. Possibly, there may be a movement beginning to do just that. More later. It’s not rocket science, folks! A growing list of local crusaders who want to be nice and play “pattycake” with the VA administrative decision makers have been promised improvements which never happened, yet they walk away patting themselves on the back, as if they “made a difference.” As with past attempts, the VA just laughs at them, and continues business as usual. What’s the old song lyric, “there are none so deaf as those who will not hear, or none so blind as those who will not see.” One day, I hope somebody steps up and wants to make a difference, instead of wanting to make friends! “Taps” for the month of May was as follows: Bobbie Ray Lamontine, Army, Cold War, (Lagrone); Jesus G. Vega III, Marine Corps, (AndersonBethany); Howard K. Reed, Army, Korean War, (Ballard); Linus Brown, World War II and Korean Wars, (Anderson- Bethany); Robert S. Reed Jr., Marine Corps, WW II (Ballard). Rest in peace, my brothers. God bless.

achieving her true potential. Akeelah persists and, in the end, triumphs. The route she takes to get there is part of the incredible story. I’ve seen the film five times and tear up each time I watch it. It’s about overcoming, not settling. Unfortunately, this film and the participants in the real-life spelling bee represent a disappearing America. We don’t want to persevere. We seldom teach it to our young. Persistence takes far too long. Instead, too many envy what others have and believe that the successful “owe” the unsuccessful. Far too many promote a culture that values greed and excess. Hard work, personal responsibility and persistence are vanishing faster than integrity in Washington. And many politicians like it that way. They encourage government dependency because it sustains their careers. The more they’re thought to be needed, the likelier they are to be re-elected. We appear to have moved from “you can do it for yourself” to “you can’t do it without us” — “us” being the federal government.
Wednesday, June 5, 2013
A new Quinnipiac University Poll found that “only 3 percent of voters trust the federal government to do the right thing almost all the time, while 12 percent say they trust it most of the time; 47 percent say some of the time and 36 percent hardly ever.” That’s hardly a glowing endorsement.
Big government has become a modern “false god.” We bow in its direction while ignoring evidence it is incapable of responding to our worship. The coming “train wreck” of Obamacare — Sen. Max Baucus’ (DMont.) words, not mine — will be the next example.
It is only when we rediscover ancient virtues and apply them to today that we will see much more of the type of success experienced by Arvind Mahankali and others like him. He, not the latest video game or teen idol, should be the next generation’s role model.

Civil Justice Clinic
ALBUQUERQUE—Enrolled veterans of the New Mexico VA Health Care System with legal questions on civil matters will have an opportunity to receive free consultation with licensed New Mexico attorneys and other legal professionals June 11 at the Raymond G. Murphy VA Medical Center in Albuquerque. The Civil Justice Clinic will be open from 9-11:30 a.m. in the medical center’s Spinal Cord Injury conference room (Bldg. 45), which can be accessed from the first floor of the main hospital building (Bldg. 41).
This clinic is the first of its kind for veterans at the medical center, offering free legal advice about consumer rights, bankruptcy, landlord-tenant issues, foreclosure and employment. Veterans also may bring their questions regarding family law, including divorce, child support, custody and visitation.
“This will be a face-to-face meeting in which our veterans will be able to receive a free consultation with lawyers on non-criminal issues,” said Jennifer Broomfield, a veterans justice outreach specialist specializing in civil justice for the New Mexico VA Health Care System. “No appointment is necessary, and our volunteer attorneys will provide brief legal advice, spending about 15 to 20 minutes with each veteran.
The June 11 clinic will be the start of many similar clinics at the medical center.
“We plan to hold these clinics for veterans on the second Tuesday of each month at the same time,” she said. “Each monthly clinic will be staffed with at least 12 attorneys in addition to law students, paralegals, social workers, and other vested parties. The resulting partnerships will expand legal services to military veterans in a big way and improve the quality of legal services to our Nation’s veterans.” Veterans are encouraged to bring with them any documents relating to their legal issues. The medical center is located at 1501 San Pedro Drive SE. For more information, please call Jennifer Broomfield at 505-265-1711, ext. 3434.

Fort Hood suspect says he was protecting Taliban FORT HOOD, Texas (AP) — An Army psychiatrist charged with gunning down Fort Hood soldiers said Tuesday his defense would show that he was compelled to do so because deploying U.S. troops posed an imminent danger to Taliban fighters. The military judge asked Maj. Nidal Hasan if he has evidence to support his “defense of others” strategy, hinting that it could be thrown out. Such a defense requires Hasan to prove the 2009 killings were necessary to protect others from immediate harm or death, and military law experts not involved in the case said the judge is unlikely to allow him to present that defense. “A ‘defense of others’ strategy is not going to work when you’re at war and the ‘others’ are enemies of the U.S.,” said Jeff Addicott, director of the Center for Terrorism Law at St. Mary’s University in San Antonio. “And what makes it more egregious is that he targeted medical personnel whose primary purpose was to heal, not to kill.” While Hasan’s argument may have been a bit more sympathetic
This undated file photo provided by the Bell County Sheriff's Department shows Nidal Hasan, the Army psychiatrist charged in the deadly 2009 Fort Hood shooting rampage that left 13 dead.
if he said the rampage was necessary to protect Muslim women and children, that defense strategy does not apply in a war situation, said Lisa M. Windsor, a retired Army colonel and former judge advocate. Still, it’s unclear what Hasan may present because attorneys are not allowed to give evi-
dence themselves, said Windsor, an attorney specializing in military law. The court-martial had been scheduled to start with jury selection Wednesday, two days after Hasan was granted his request to represent himself. Hasan, an American-born Muslim, then
requested a three-month delay to give him more time to prepare his defense. The military judge, Col. Tara Osborn, was to rule Wednesday on Hasan’s trial delay request after hearing more about his defense. Osborn said jury selection would now start no earlier than Monday. Hasan, 42, faces the death penalty or life without parole if convicted of 13 counts of premeditated murder and 32 counts of attempted premeditated murder in the 2009 attack at the Army post in Texas. At a hearing Tuesday, Osborn asked what evidence Hasan had to support his defense. Hasan said Taliban leader Mullah Omar and “leadership of the Taliban in general” were in immediate danger from American troops on the Texas Army post, because “the U.S. has attacked and continued to attack the Taliban.” Osborn quickly interrupted Hasan, a day after telling him that he could not make speeches or try to testify when questioning witnesses. Retired Staff Sgt. Shawn Manning, shot six times that day, said
five of the 13 killed at Fort Hood were in two units that had been training to help soldiers deal with stress and mental health issues. Deployed soldiers in those units are allowed to fire their weapons only in self-defense, Manning said. Hasan was to deploy to Afghanistan with one of those units. But not everyone killed was about to deploy — to Afghanistan or anywhere else. Pvt. Francheska Velez, who was pregnant, had just returned from Iraq. Michael Grant Cahill, who tried to stop the gunman with a chair, was a physician assistant working in the building. “It makes me sick to my stomach” that Hasan would use such a defense strategy, Manning said. Witnesses have said that after lunch on Nov. 5, 2009, a gunman wearing an Army combat uniform shouted “Allahu Akbar!” — “God is great!” in Arabic — and opened fire in a crowded medical building where deploying soldiers get vaccines and tests. Witnesses said the gunman fired rapidly, pausing only to reload, even shooting at some soldiers as they hid under desks and fled the building.

RDR Business Review Page is a great way to advertise
The Roswell Daily Record’s Business Review Page is a great way for a business to advertise. The Business Review Pages run three times a week, in the Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday papers. There are only a few spots available right now. If you’ve “been thinking about it”, NOW would be the time to get your spot before they’re all gone. Your RDR advertising representative can fill you in on the complete details. Please phone or ask them for the information. The basic setup for the Business Review Page is as follows: You sign up and we run your ad on the bottom half of the Business Review Page on it’s assigned day (Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday) each week. We have a maximum of twenty-six ads running per page. After advertising weekly for six months, you will receive a “free feature article” (then another one six months after your first free one and another one six

This six month schedule comes from having up to twenty-six (maximum) advertisers per page and a fifty-two week year. With ads starting as low as $21.43 (including tax) per week, the Business Review Page is ideal for businesses large and small to obtain effective advertising on a small budget. The feature article typically uses two or three
photographs and the equivalent of two double-spaced typewritten pages of information about your business. It’s an ad that looks like a written story. This info usually consists of what you have to offer (services and/or product); who you are (history); where you are located; when you are open; and how to get in touch with you. The typical layout can be altered to fit your circumstance. If you want more pictures, we can cut down on the article’s
length. We do what ever works best for you. Bill Flynt is the Business Review Page Editor. Bill takes the photographs and either writes the text (with your input,) or uses an article that you provide for your feature story. We can also use your photographs, if you have ones that you want to use. Many local business owners (like the three pictured here) have found this feature to be an ideal way for them to advertise economically. They have an
ad in the Roswell Daily Record once a week, on their regular day, and then they have a half page writeup with pictures twice a year to tell the story of their business. Please call your Roswell Daily Record advertising representative at 622-7710 for complete information and prices. In this economy you’ve got to advertise to stay in business, and the Roswell Daily Record's Business Review Page is an
effective way to do it.
Call now while there are still spaces available. It’s a great deal and you will see more customers coming in the front door of your business when you advertise in the newspaper. Advertising in the Roswell Daily Record works because it is a great way to inform people about your business and what you have to offer. Phone 6227710.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Honor a boss’s request, but know your limits. Focus on the here-and-now. You easily could be distracted, as an aspect of your daily life is subject to change. You will want more space and the freedom to work on projects at your own pace. Tonight: Out till the wee hours. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) You’ll ask rapid-fire questions and expect answers. What becomes obvious is that you know the answers — you just haven’t taken the time to realize it. Reassess a situation according to news that filters in. Return a call to someone at a distance. Tonight: Consider taking a trip. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) Communicating on a one-on-one level with others will produce a stronger response than you might have thought possible. Evaluate what is happening behind the scenes that others might not be aware of. Consider sharing a secret with a close loved one. Tonight: Togetherness.

Unfortunately, not everyone’s mind works like yours. Someone could have difficulty digesting the information. Be patient and compassionate. Tonight: Tap into your imagination. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) Getting your mind off a personal matter could be challenging, at best. Consider taking some time off to work through the issue in question. When you feel undermined in one area of your life, it can be difficult to focus on the rest! Tonight: Buy a favorite treat on the way home. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) Keep communication moving. Even if you feel as if someone is being controlling, try not to make it an issue. Rethink your role in the present situation. You can close someone off quite easily, which might make others feel at a loss. Tonight: Hang out with your friends.

Ga. jazz musician Ben Tucker killed in car crash
SAVANNAH, Ga. (AP) — Musician Ben Tucker perfor med with stars from Quincy Jones to Peggy Lee before he settled in the 1970s in Savannah, where the jazz bassist became one of the Georgia city’s best-known working musicians. He was killed in a car crash Tuesday at age 82. Tucker was driving a golf cart across a road on Hutchinson Island when a car slammed into him at high speed, said Savannah-Chatham County police spokesman Julian Miller. Tucker was pronounced dead at a local hospital. The driver of the car that struck him was charged with vehicular homicide and other criminal counts. The news stunned musicians and jazz enthusiasts in Savannah, where Tucker had been a musical fixture for roughly four decades. Tucker made his living playing upright bass — an

instrument he’d named Bertha and claimed was 240 years old — in all sorts of settings from jazz festivals to wedding receptions, from nightclub gigs to bar mitzvahs. “One of the most interesting things about playing with Ben was he was so beloved by so many people in Savannah who had met him at his club or whose weddings he had played,” said Howard Paul, a jazz guitarist who played and recorded with Tucker for more than 20 years. “You could count on being interrupted at least three times in a song because Savannahians would walk up and shake his hand while we were playing.” Before he moved to the Georgia coast, Tucker had some success as a song-
jazz, yet he spent so much time with local musicians and children as well,” Paul said. “I think he grew up in an era of jazz musicians where they felt obligated to give back.” The Savannah Morning News reported Tucker was

Hornstein said Tucker took excellent care of himself for a man in his 80s and kept a steady gig playing Sunday brunch at a Savannah hotel, where he had been scheduled to perform the night of his death. “He was a working musician right to the end,” Hornstein said. “He was so instrumental in the music life of Savannah.”

Roswell stretched the lead to 9-0 with three RBI singles and a run-scoring groundout in the fifth. Trinidad scored seven runs over the sixth and seventh innings and was within five at 12-7 going to the ninth. The Triggers closed to within two on a three-run triple, but Ryan Rogers got Wink Nolan to ground out for the game’s final out. Johnathon Sa (4-0) picked up
the win after allowing seven runs on six hits and striking out five in 6 1⁄3 innings. Rogers earned the save, his fourth of the year, despite facing just two batters and recording one out. Reggie Taylor had four RBIs and two runs scored for the Invaders and Normoyle added three and two, respectively. In all, six Invaders had at least two hits, including Chad Kruse, who went 3 for 6 to drive his average up to .422.

tremendous respect from the coaches they coach against, and they both have a level of humility that I believe shows NBA coaching in the most positive light possible.” Spoelstra is in the finals for the third straight year and is looking for a second consecutive championship. Popovich is going for his fifth title, the last of the ones currently in his collection coming over James and the Cleveland Cavaliers in 2007, and could join Phil Jackson as the only coaches to win championships in three different decades. So far, only Jackson, Red Auerbach, John Kundla and Pat Riley — Spoelstra’s mentor and boss in Miami — have five rings as a head coach.
“Maybe I don’t show it the way I should, but it’s pretty special,” Popovich said, in a rare moment of near-sheepishness, after his team beat Memphis and won the West title for a fifth time. “I’m just really proud of the group the way they worked all year long to get there, and I’m sure that we’ve been a team that’s probably been written off like they’ve had their day.” Spoelstra took over for Riley five seasons ago, has won nearly twice as many games as he’s lost, and has endured a constant circus of distractions ever since the Heat acquired James and Chris Bosh to play alongside Dwyane Wade in 2010.

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Ohio State University President Gordon Gee abruptly announced his retirement Tuesday after he came under fire for jokingly referring to “those damn Catholics” at Notre Dame and poking fun at the academic quality of other schools. The remarks were first reported last week by The Associated Press, and Ohio State at the time called them unacceptable and said it had placed Gee on a “remediation plan” to change his behavior. Gee, 69, said in a teleconference that the furor was only part of his decision to retire, which he said he had been considering for a while. He said his age and the start of a long-term planning process at the university were also factors. “I live in turbulent times and I’ve had a lot of headwinds, and so almost every occasion, I have just moved on,” he said. Gee explained away the abrupt timing by saying he was “quirky as hell” and hated long transitions. He also said he didn’t regret the way he conducted himself as a higher education leader. “I have regrets when I have said things that I shouldn’t have said, but I have no regrets about having a sense of humor and having a thick skin and enjoying life,” Gee said. According to a recording of a Dec. 5 meeting obtained by the AP under a public records request, Gee, a Mormon, said Notre Dame was never invited to join the Big Ten athletic conference because “you just can’t trust those damn Catholics.” Gee also took shots at schools in the Southeastern Conference and the University of Louisville, according to the recording of the meeting of the school’s Athletic Council.

HOF’er, Ram great Deacon Jones dead at 74
His nickname belied his calling. David “Deacon” Jones was the most feared member of the Fearsome Foursome, the original sackmaster. Reggie White, Bruce Smith, Lawrence Taylor — they all followed the lead set by Jones, who died Monday at 74. “Deacon Jones was one of the greatest players in NFL history. Off the field, he was a true giant,” said Redskins general manager B r u c e Allen,

whose father, George, coached Jones with the Los Angeles Rams. “His passion and spirit will continue to inspire those who knew him. He was a cherished member of the Allen family and I will always consider him my big brother.” Not only was Jones the main practitioner of the sack in his 14 pro seasons, he coined the term. He once compared bringing down quarterbacks to hog-tying them in a sack. He was smiling when he said it. Yet Jones never got the statistical credit for all those QB knockdowns; sacks didn’t become an official statistic in the NFL until 1982. Jones retired after the 1974 season, having played 11 years with the Rams, two with the Chargers and one with the Redskins. Rams stats show Jones with 159 1⁄2 sacks for them and 173 1⁄2 for his career — all unofficial, of course. Jones also was one of the most durable players, missing just five games in his pro career. He entered the Pro Football Hall of

Fame in 1980. “He was an icon among the icons,” Commissioner Roger Goodell said. “Even with his fellow Hall of Famers, Deacon Jones held a special status. He was a hard-charging football player and the original sack artist who coined the term. He is warmly regarded by his peers not only as one of the greatest players in NFL history, but also for his tremendous influence and sense of humor.” Jones was held in such high esteem that when he made the league’s 75th anniversary all-time squad, it prompted former teammate and fellow Hall of Famer Jack Youngblood to say: “Deacon Jones has been the most inspirational person in my football career.” That sort of praise was typical for Jones, the anchor of the Fearsome Foursome. Jones made the Pro Bowl every year from 1964-70 and played in eight overall. He See DEACON, Page B2
Oklahoma Sooners • After losing in the championship series last year, Ricketts vowed to win the NCAA title this year. And she made good on her vow Tuesday, helping the Sooners beat Tennessee 4-0 in Game 2 of the Women’s College World Series championship series. Ricketts, the two-time national player of the year, homered and drove in all four of Oklahoma’s runs in the win. She hit a three-run homer in the third and tacked on an RBI groundout in the seventh.

near that sort of scrutiny; being in a smaller market helps keep the level of attention down. By now, Spoelstra doesn’t even notice what he calls “the noise.” Even in the din of an Eastern Conference championship celebration on Monday night — actually during the trophy presentation ceremony — Spoelstra found his mind drifting away from the grind of facing the Indiana Pacers and onto the next challenge, this duel with the Spurs for the NBA title. “It’s one of those few times in competitive team sports you’re not thinking about tomorrow, you’re not thinking about the previous games, you’re not thinking about what possibly may happen, you’re not thinking about the reward. All you’re thinking about is the desperation of that moment,” Spoelstra said. “That’s a great place to live.” And then ... “It probably hit me right about then, and it was the ‘ohh’ type moment,” Spoelstra said. “We have to get our act together in the next
48 hours. ... They are a great organization. I think the two organizations from afar have always respected each other for similar foundations and culture.” The coaches have items designed to inspire players in their respective locker rooms, a famous quote about a stonecutter for the Spurs, a replica of the championship trophy with the words “All In” emblazoned on it for the Heat. Both believe in loyalty, proven by the fact neither has changed work addresses in nearly two decades. Maybe they’re not so different after all. “Both sides have great coaches. A great coaching staff,” Wade said. “They’re going to get their team prepared as well as they can. Obviously San Antonio has a system. Obviously they have certain players that’s featured in the system, that have been featured awhile, many years for them. That’s not a surprise. “We’re going to have to make adjustments every game, throughout the series.” There may be no coach in the league with more open disdain for in-game interviews, the ones taking place at the end of the first and

combined with Hall of Famer Merlin Olsen, Rosey Grier and Lamar Lundy on a defensive line that at times was unblockable. Olsen died in 2010 at 69 and Lundy died in 2007 at 71. Grier, 80, is the only surviving member of the Fearsome Foursome. “Deacon was an incredible team guy and he always wanted to win, he wanted all of us to run the race together,” Grier said Tuesday. “We didn’t play run, we played pass and we all came off the ball together. The whole point was to get in the backfield fast and mess everything up. They couldn’t stop the Fearsome Foursome - we made a great contribution to the game of football.” George Allen, who coached the Fearsome Foursome, called Jones the “greatest defensive end of modern football.” The Allen family had Jones present George Allen for his Hall of Fame induction in 2002, yet

Funeral held for ex-college QB found dead in woods
BRIGHTON TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) — Relatives, ex-teammates and coaches remembered Cullen Finnerty during a funeral Tuesday for the former Grand Valley State University star quarterback whose body was discovered last month in woods in western Michigan. “God must have had a bad season last year. Because he took you as the No. 1 draft pick this year,” older brother, Tim, said during a Mass at St. Mary Magdalen Parish in Livingston County’s Brighton Township,

third quarters of nationally televised games, than Popovich. It’s not personal. He’d simply rather coach than talk. “He says what he needs to say and he gets out,” Duncan said. “So I guess I’ve learned that much. ... I think it’s hilarious. I think it’s awesome. As I said, he’s direct. He says what he needs to say and he gets out of there.” Popovich has proven that time and again. In these playoffs alone, some of his interview highlights included half-seriously calling Duncan a pain in the butt, talking about wanting to trade Manu Ginobili over poor shot selection, prefacing his response to a question by warning a reporter he was about to receive a trite answer, and offering this gem when asked for his favorite part of the gameday process. “Dinner,” Popovich said. Spoelstra clearly embraces banter with the media more, though it’s almost impossible to get him to reveal much of his innermost thinkings or workings. He rarely has revealed any facet of his personal life. And just this week, when asked about how many hours coaches log in the playoffs,
another example of the regard in which Jones was held. “Not only to coin the term sack, but just his personality of being a defensive lineman; his charisma and his presence,” Smith, the career sacks leader by official count with 200, told NFL Network. “When he walked into the room, he commanded respect, whether it was on the playing field or his choice of words. This is going to be a great loss for all of the football nation, the fans and particularly those who loved him dearly like myself.” After he retired, Jones appeared in some TV commercials and later began an eponymous foundation in Anaheim Hills, Calif., that encourages youngsters from inner -city schools to become leaders in their community. The Redskins said Jones died of natural causes. In 2009, he told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch he had undergone lung surgery and received a pacemaker. That year, the Rams retired his jersey number, 75.
northwest of Detroit. Authorities found no obvious signs of trauma and have yet to determine a cause of death for the 30-year-old, who was with his relatives on a holiday weekend at a cottage in Lake County’s Webber Township. He disappeared May 26 while fishing a river separately from other relatives. His body was found days later, about 65 miles north of Grand Rapids during a search by dozens of people including former teammates, coaches and current players from the school in Allendale. Finnerty, a star at Brighton High School, was one of the most successful quarterbacks in college football history. He led Division II Grand Valley to more than 50 victories and three national titles, the last in 2006. “Cullen Finnerty changed the university. Not many people do that,” said Chuck Martin, who coached Finnerty at Grand Valley and is now Notre Dame’s offensive coordinator. A Grand Valley State helmet and jersey were laid on Finnerty’s casket. After college, Finnerty briefly was a member of the Baltimore Ravens and later the Denver Broncos but never got a snap. He is survived by his wife, Jennifer; son, Caden; and daughter, Makinley.

Kings beat Chicago in Game 3
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Slava Voynov had a goal and an assist, Jonathan Quick made 19 saves, and the Los Angeles Kings beat Chicago 3-1 in Game 3 of the Western Conference finals on Tuesday night, trimming the Blackhawks’ series lead to 2-1. Justin Williams also scored and Dwight King added an empty-net goal in the defending Stanley Cup champions’ 15th consecutive home victory since March. The Kings have won eight straight home playoff games, dating to last season’s title clincher, and they never trailed while ending the topseeded Blackhawks’ five-game postseason winning streak. Game 4 is Thursday night. Bryan Bickell scored and Corey Crawford stopped 25 shots for the Blackhawks, who chased Quick from Game 2 and earned back-to-back home vic-
tories to open the series last weekend. The Kings had lost five of their previous seven playoff games before getting back to friendly Staples Center and their sellout crowd. Quick also returned to Conn Smythe Trophy form in Game 3, highlighted by a dazzling late save on Bickell, while his low-scoring teammates generated just enough offense to hold off the Blackhawks, who hadn’t lost since Game 4 of the second round. Jeff Carter had two assists during an inspired effort despite the absence of injured linemate Mike Richards, and Voynov had his fourth multipoint game in a prolific postseason. The Blackhawks matched their playoff low with just 20 shots, but the Presidents’ Trophy winners were one good

Federer loses quick French QF; Williams back in SF
PARIS (AP) — A point from losing the first set of his French Open quarterfinal, Roger Federer shanked a routine forehand, sending the ball 10 feet beyond the opposite baseline. The Court Philippe Chatrier crowd roared with approval, then loudly chanted the last name of Federer’s opponent, Frenchman JoWilfried Tsonga. That shot was a clear indication that Federer was hardly Federesque on this day. There were plenty of others: He argued with the chair umpire about a call. He dumped overhead smashes into the net. And in a truly rare ungraceful moment, he failed to put a racket to — or get out of the way of — a backhand flip by a sliding Tsonga, instead getting hit on the back. All in all, Federer looked lost out there Tuesday against the sixth-seeded Tsonga, who pounded his way to a 7-5, 6-3, 6-3 victory over the 17-time Grand Slam champion in a 1-hour, 51-minute mismatch remarkable for its lopsidedness and brevity. “I struggled a little bit everywhere. To be honest, personally, I’m pretty sad about the match and the way I played. But that’s how it goes. I tried to figure things out, but it was difficult. And Jo does a good job keeping the pressure on,” Federer said. “He was just ... better in all areas,” continued Federer, whose lone French Open title, in 2009, allowed him to equal Pete Sampras’ then-record of 14 major championships. “He returned better than I did. Served better than I did. I struggled to find my rhythm.” While Federer quickly faced a big deficit Tuesday and never recovered, Serena Williams was able to get out of a much smaller spot of trouble. Like Federer, Williams is 31. Like Federer, she’s won more than a dozen Grand Slam titles, 15. And like Federer, only one of those trophies came at Roland Garros, in 2002. Trailing in the third set against 2009 French Open winner Svetlana Kuznetsova, the No. 1-seeded Williams won five games in a row en route to a 6-1, 3-6, 6-3 victory that put her back in the semifinals at Paris after a decade’s absence. Williams had lost four consecutive quarterfinals at Roland Garros — in 2004, 2007, 2009 (to Kuznetsova), 2010 — and so when she was serving while down 2-0 in the final set Tuesday, “I thought, you know, ‘Can’t go out like this again.”’ That was a pivotal game, featuring 16 points and three break chances for Kuznetsova, who flubbed the last with a drop shot that floated wide. After finally holding in that game with an inside-out forehand winner as Kuznetsova stumbled to the clay, Williams
bounce away from tying the score in the final minutes. Brandon Saad nearly had an open net after a cross-ice pass from Viktor Stalberg with 5 minutes left, but couldn’t collect the puck. Moments later, Keith missed a near-breakaway at the Kings’ blue line when Chicago went offside — and Quick set off a frenzy in the crowd when he improbably stopped Bickell’s fine chance late. The Blackhawks hadn’t been at Staples Center since both clubs’ season opener Jan. 19, when Chicago spoiled the Kings’ banner-raising ceremony with a 5-2 victory. NOTES: Carter went to the dressing room for repairs after Keith’s high stick. Chicago RW Patrick Sharp went to the dressing room in the second after a hit from Brown, but returned for the third period. broke right away with a backhand winner that had her yelling and shaking her fist.

The Force Is With Us
Experiencing Gravity Gravity is one of the most important forces in the universe. It causes planets and stars to form. It keeps everything, including us, on our planet. It traps the air in our atmosphere and causes the tides. The Mini Page talked with an expert from the National Science Foundation to learn more about this important force.

Gravity keeps our solar system together. It keeps the moon revolving around the Earth and the Earth and other planets orbiting the sun. It holds galaxies together.
Everything changes again
Gravity is one of the four forces that affect the universe. Gravity causes every object to attract every other object. The three other forces keep atoms together or are connected with electricity and magnetism. A force is something that pushes or pulls something. It can make an object move in a certain direction, or it can make an object stop moving. A force is like an imaginary elastic band attached to an object. The force pulls the object just as an elastic band pulls an object. Gravity is the weakest force. It is also one of the most mysterious. We know little about it.
Sir Isaac Newton was a scientist who lived nearly 400 years ago. He was the first person to explain gravity. The story goes that Newton was sitting under a tree when an apple fell and bonked him on the head. He wondered what made the apple fall down. Why didnâ€™t it go up instead? Why didnâ€™t it fly to the side? When Newton was still in his 20s, he figured out that the same force that made the apple fall also made the moon orbit the Earth and the planets orbit the Isaac Newton sun. He was the first person to make this (1642-1727) connection.
In the early 1900s, another young genius, Albert Einstein, realized that Newtonâ€™s idea of gravity doesnâ€™t work for huge distances. It doesnâ€™t work near massive objects such as black holes. He figured out that time had to be part of the picture. Time and space are linked together. To understand gravity, we need four dimensions â€” length, width, height and time. If you watch science fiction shows, you may have heard about the space-time continuum (kuhnTIN-u-uhm). This is what theyâ€™re Albert Einstein talking about.
