Obama-Putin talks candid at G20 Summit LOS CABOS, Mexico (AP) — President Barack Obama and Russian President Vladimir Putin agreed Monday that Syrians should choose their own next government, marking a subtle shift for both the United States and Russia as they confront the prospect that Russia’s main ally in the Mideast could slide into civil war. Sharing pledges of common ground, yet hardly much eye contact or obvious kinship in front of reporters, Obama and Putin met for the first time since the Russian leader returned to the presidency last month. Obama spoke at greater length, emphasizing several areas of cooperation between the onetime Cold War enemies, but the unending bloodshed in Syria hung over the talks. The two leaders “agreed that we need to see a cessation of the violence, that a political process has to be created to prevent civil war and the kind of horrific events that we’ve seen over the last several weeks,” Obama said. Putin, seated next to Obama following

the private meeting, said: “We’ve been able to find many commonalities” on Syria. But he of fered no specifics on what those were, and it was unclear how much the closed twohour talk did to close strategic gaps about how to end the violence. Russia has refused to call for the ouster of Syrian President Bashar Assad, an ally, and neither leader mentioned him by name Monday. In a departure from previous statements, Obama called for a “political process,” that would end horrific violence in Syria, but he did not say Assad must go. Obama’s careful language appeared designed to give the Russian some elbow room. In other settings, he and other White House officials have been forceful in insisting that Assad must step aside. The United States and Russia share a goal of a “political transition to a democratic, pluralistic political system that would be implemented by the Syrians themselves,” a

joint statement issued on the sidelines of the Group of 20 economic summit said. Obama and Putin had a brisk handshake at the end, and their tones cool and businesslike. Putin campaigned last year with some of the harshest antiAmerican rhetoric from Russia in a decade, and his return to the top job in Russia ensures that cooperation with the United States will come at a cost. Syrian opposition groups estimate 14,000 people have died in the brutal clashes between anti-gover nment protestors and pro-Assad forces. Hopes for a diplomatic resolution have rested on Washington and Moscow agreeing on a transition plan that would end the four -decade Assad family rule. Russia, as Syria’s longtime ally and trading partner, is seen as the best broker for a deal that could give Assad political refuge. So far, Moscow has said no.

The move was widely interpreted as a challenge to Russia to intervene with Assad to preserve a U.N. role Moscow sees as a brake on any armed foreign intervention.

Officials: Contract prison worker busted for drug smuggling in NM

ALBUQUERQUE (AP) — A contract prison worker was caught trying to smuggle cocaine and heroin into a New Mexico prison in what authorities believe was one of the largest drug busts within the state prison system, corrections officials said Monday. The woman tried to bring 26 grams of cocaine and 46 grams of heroin into the Southern New Mexico Corrections Facility in Las Cruces, where she worked as a contract food service employee, according to the New Mexico Corrections Department. Her name was not released. Prison officials made the bust last week after secretly listening to calls between the woman and an inmate who worked in the kitchen and was described as her fiance, said James Mulheron, administrator for the department’s Security Threat Intelligence Unit. Officials identified the inmate as Frank Morales, a 31-year-old serving time for trafficking a controlled substance with intent to distribute. “It’s crushing,” Mulheron said at a news conference. “Any time you have someone inside the prison system working to smuggle in drugs, it compromises the safety of our facilities.” The drugs’ estimated value in prison was $5,000, officials said. Mulheron said the woman has yet to be formally charged but that she’ll face six felony counts related to drug trafficking. Morales also faces charges, Mulheron said. It was unclear if Morales had hired an attorney. The pair may have successfully smuggled drugs into prison at least once, Mulheron said. Mulheron said cocaine and heroin busts at New Mexico prisons normally involve a gram or less.

Governor orders end to use of private email by state workers

SANTA FE (AP) — Gov. Susana Martinez directed state workers on Monday to only use the government’s email system for conducting public business, a move that ends her administration’s practice of sending email through private accounts in some instances.

The Republican governor’s dir ective came a week after it was disclosed that she and high ranking administration officials had discussed state issues using email accounts connected to her political action committee. Critics said the practice was unacceptable, particularly for a governor who had touted the need for more governmental transparency.

State workers under the governor’s control are to use state email even for “discussions preliminary in nature to final

decisions or actions that have occasionally been sent via personal email because they ar e not r equir ed to be maintained under state law,” the gover nor said in a statement. “There is no state law that requires this to be done, but utilizing only state email to conduct state business in connection with public employees’ duties is another important step to ensure continued confidence in government,” said Martinez, a former prosecutor before taking office as governor last year. The state Democratic Party said in a statement that the governor’s directive “never addresses the that has business already been done outside of the reach of the public eye.” The administration contends that its use of

ESSENTIAL PROTECTION

By Connie DeNio of Roswell 622-7191 or 626-7948

Everyone uses title insurance, but few people know what it is. Essentially, it protects buyers of property against losses if there is a defect in the property’s title. This insurance means the insurer will pay to defend lawsuits attacking the title as we as well pay any claims if the title proves defective. It should be part of most sales contracts. Standard title insurance covers defects in public

records, forged documents, incompetent grantors, incorrect marital statements or improperly delivered deeds. Extended coverage includes inquiries of person in possession, examination of survey, unrecorded liens not known by policy holder. An examination to determine if there are defects in a title is called a title search. ©. Give Me a Call Me Today!

AP sources: Administration mulls pared health law Roswell Daily Record

WASHINGTON (AP) — Covering all the bases ahead of a momentous Supreme Court ruling, the Obama administration plans to move ahead with major parts of the president’s health care law if its most controversial provision does not survive, according to veteran Democrats closely involved with the legislation. Even if the requirement that nearly every U.S. resident have health insurance is declared unconstitutional, the remaining parts of the law would have far reaching impact, putting coverage within reach of millions of uninsured people, laying new obligations on insurers and employers, and improving Medicare benefits even as payments to many service providers get scaled back. The White House says President Barack Obama is confident the whole law will be upheld when the court issues its ruling in the next week or two, but officials will be ready for any outcome. “We do believe it’s constitutional, and we ... hope and expect that’s the decision the court will render,” senior adviser David Plouffe said Sunday on ABC. “We obviously will be prepared for whatever decision the court renders.” Administration officials have not wanted to discuss contingency

plans to avoid creating the impression that the president is preparing for a high court rebuke. Nevertheless, the Obama administration will move ahead to implement major elements of the law if the individual coverage requirement is struck down, two senior Democrats told The Associated Press. One is a leading Democrat familiar with the administration’s thinking, the other a highlevel Capitol Hill staffer. The two Democrats spoke on condition of anonymity to avoid appearing to be out of step with the administration’s public stance. Because the law’s main coverage expansion does

not begin until 2014, there would be time to try to fix serious problems that losing the individual coverage requirement may cause for the health insurance industry. Surviving parts of the law would “absolutely” move ahead, said the congressional official. A Congress mired in partisan trench warfare would be unable to repeal or amend what’s left of the law, allowing the administration to advance. Much of the money for covering the uninsured was already provided in the law itself. “Legislatively we can’t do a thing, and we are going to move full speed ahead (with

implementation),” the official said. How the Supreme Court will decide is unclear. It may uphold the law, strike it down entirely or do something in between. Skeptical questioning by the court’s conservative justices during oral arguments this spring has fueled speculation that the court may invalidate the so-called individual mandate. Opponents say the requirement that individuals have coverage is unconstitutional, that the federal government can’t tell people to obtain particular goods or services. Supporters say the man-

date is a necessary component of a broader scheme to regulate health insurance, which is well within the powers of Congress. By requiring people to carry health insurance or pay a fine, the law seeks to broaden the pool of people with coverage, helping to keep premiums affordable. If the mandate is struck down, that would still leave in place a major expansion of Medicaid, the federalstate safety net program for low-income people. The Medicaid expansion was originally estimated to account for about half the more than 30 million people slated to get coverage under the law. Without a mandate, the number would be smaller but still significant. Federal tax credits to help middle-class people buy private health coverage would also survive, as would new state-based insurance markets. Such subsidies have never previously been available, and millions are expected to take advantage of them, whether or not insurance is required by law. Still, it could be tricky to salvage the law’s full blueprint for helping middle-class uninsured people. Overturning the mandate would have harmful consequences for the private insurance market. Under the law, insurers would still

have to accept all applicants regardless of health problems, and they would be limited in what they can charge older, sicker customers. As a result, premiums for people who directly buy their own coverage would jump by 15 percent to 20 percent, the Congressional Budget Office estimates. Older, sicker people would flock to get health insurance but younger, healthier ones would hold back. To forestall such a problem, the administration asked the court — if it declares the mandate unconstitutional — to also strike down certain consumer protections, including the requirement on insurers to cover people with pre-existing health problems. That would mitigate a damaging spike in premiums. Whether or not the court goes along with that request, more work would be needed to find alternatives to a federal mandate. That could provide an opening for state officials, as well as major insurance companies, to join in finding workable substitutes for the mandate. Congressional approval would likely be needed. Without the individual requirement, some 14 million people would still get coverage, budget office estimates suggest.

Veterinarians consider giving NC zoo elephant contacts

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — After C’sar the bull elephant lost weight, grew depressed and underwent surgery because of eye trouble, his keepers at a North Carolina zoo began to consider a pioneering move in pachyderm medicine: giving him a set of king-size contact lenses. Officials at the North Carolina Zoo in Asheboro and the North Carolina State University’s College of Veterinary Medicine are weighing whether the risks are worth it. C’sar’s caregivers said an elephant has never been fitted with corrective lenses, and they are unsure if they want C’sar to be the world’s first test subject. The 12,000-pound, 38-year-old African bull elephant has been at the zoo since 1978. “He just stood around and leaned against the walls,” said senior veterinarian Ryan DeVoe. “He was just not interested in anything going on around him.” After C’sar had cataract surger-

farsighted. C’sar’s eyes are a bit larger than the eyes of a horse, said Richard McMullen, assistant professor of veterinary ophthalmolo-

gy at N.C. State. The lenses would need to be soft and almost three times larger than contacts fitted for a human: 38 millimeters in diameter and about half a millimeter thick. It will be August at the earliest before C’sar’s eyes are sufficiently healed to wear contacts. German-based Acrivet would create the contacts if called upon by C’sar’s caregivers. A spokeswoman said the technology for animal contacts has only been around for a little under a decade and the company has never made elephant contact lenses before. The custom creations for C’sar would be the largest the manufacturer has ever made. McMullen, who per for med C’sar’s two surgeries, believes corrective lenses would further improve the elephant’s wellbeing. “In dogs, we have seen their quality of life increase,” McMullen said.

Nuns start tour protesting Republican budget plan DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — A group of Roman Catholic nuns began a nine-state bus tour protesting proposed federal budget cuts Monday, saying they weren’t trying to flout recent Vatican criticisms of socially active nuns but felt called to show how Republican policies are affecting lowincome families. The tour was organized by Network, a Washington-based Catholic social justice group criticized in a recent Vatican report that said some organizations led by nuns have focused too much on economic injustice while failing to promote the church’s teachings on abortion and same-sex marriage. The Vatican asked U.S. bishops to look at Network’s ties to another group of nuns it is reorganizing because of what the church calls “serious doctrinal problems.” Sister Simone Campbell, Network’s executive director, said while the tour may appear to have been organized to counter recent criticism of social activist nuns by the Vatican and American bishops, it was not. The timing was in response to consideration of the federal budget in Congress, she said. But if the 14 nuns who will rotate on and off the bus during the next

two weeks weren’t trying to counter the Vatican, they likely did little to ease its concerns about social activism. The tour kicked off with a rally that had the feel of a political event. About 20 supporters brought flowers and balloons and sang, “Alleluia,” as the nuns boarded a modern tour bus decorated with bright-colored graphics. While the nuns say they aren’t opposing any specific Republican candidate, they plan stops at the offices of several closely tied to the budget process, including House Speaker John Boehner of

Ohio, and Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan, the architect of the House-passed budget. Their first stop Monday was Rep. Steve King’s office in Ames. The tour will end in Washington on July 2. The mandate to crack down on socially active nuns upset some church parishioners who turned out to support the nuns. “They want to bully these nuns and shut them down and tell them: ‘Get back in your place, ladies.’ No, it’s not going to be that way anymore,” said Mary Ann McCoy, of Des Moines, who attends St. Ambrose Cathedral.

“They’re women of courage,” McCoy said. “Back in the Old Testament they talked about prophets. A prophet is somebody who speaks for God and these are the things that God talked about — injustice, the poor, the marginalized, woman. Jesus was the greatest prophet when he went out and he shook things up a lot. Well, I think the sisters are walking the walk and talking the talk and that’s what’s important to us.”

While the Vatican has criticized Network, church officials have not ordered a full-scale overhaul of it as is being done with another group, the Leadership Conference of Women Religious. After a two-year investigation, the Vatican concluded the conference had undermined Roman Catholic teaching with radical feminist themes and taken positions that undermined Catholic teaching on the all-male priesthood, marriage and homosexuality. Three U.S. bishops, including Seattle Archbishop J. Peter Sartain, have been given five years to reorganize that group.

go under anesthesia to get the contacts inserted, but he might have to be sedated.

C’sar already responds well to his post-surgery eye drops. The bull elephant’s handlers have trained him to lean his eye in between the six-inch thick steel bars to receive the medicine. With contacts, he would need four-tofive doses daily.

Zookeepers aren’t certain how often the contacts would need to be changed. Their best guess is every three months. Zoo officials also don’t know what health complications might arise over time.

While this would be the first corrective lens for an elephant, it wouldn’t be the first contact. McMullen said a contact has been used once before on an elephant in Amsterdam in February, but just as a bandage to keep foreign objects out of the eye after surgery.

Disputes over apple orchards and activism

Sorting out complex issues is something I like to do in these columns, but the space in a typical opinion column doesn’t always permit that. Today, we return to a couple of subjects of past columns — apples and activism. State Land Commissioner Ray Powell doesn’t think he got his turn at bat in my discussion of the Dixon Apple Orchard and its unhappy tenants, the Mullane family. If you’ve been reading, you know that the Mullanes and Powell are at odds over the lessees’ desire to sell their lease to San Felipe Pueblo for $2.8 million, which would stake them to a new start in Wisconsin. Wildfire and floods sapped Jim and Becky Mullane’s desire to stay; Powell is obliged to protect the land and get taxpayers the best deal. It’s been a very public fight. “We’ve done everything we can

think of to keep the Mullanes on the land,” Powell says. “We got people out there and spent money trying to prevent flooding. We tried to be as humane as possible.” Powell denies wanting to make political hay and insists the problem began in 2005 with his predecessor’s land deal, which gave the state ownership of improvements except for trees. It’s the only arrangement like it on state lands. If the Mullanes give up the lease, a new lessee would pay them only for the trees and the name — not their outbuildings,

their fencing or other assets. The Land Office has tried to reach the Mullanes, but they haven’t responded. Meanwhile, the agency is watering their trees and had arborists from NMSU look at the orchard. A few parties have inquired about the orchard, and apparently nearby pueblos are interested in the remaining 8,500 acres. “Other orchards have told me they couldn’t compete with Dixon. The Mullanes had no mortgage, they didn’t pay for water, there was no property tax,” Powell says. Another condition of the 2005 deal was that lessees have 20 years’ experience — a condition that originated with the Mullanes, Powell says, and has limited the pool of applicants. San Felipe doesn’t have the experience and has said it’s not interested in running an apple orchard. In ethics courses, you learn the

goal is doing what’s right; in complex cases, it’s doing the best thing for the most people. You also learn that everybody has to negotiate in good faith, and it helps greatly, although it’s not always possible, for the parties to shed emotion. It’s probably healthy for the Mullanes and Powell to take a breather. But they will still have to sit down and negotiate. Says Powell, “It’s been the perfect storm for everyone.” On another subject, Stephanie Maez-Gibson and Tomas Garduño wrote in an op-ed that I “mischaracterized the civic engagement work” of their nonprofit organizations, the Center for Civic Policy and the Southwest Organizing Project. In particular, I questioned fliers assailing certain lawmakers for votes against SB 9, a pet progressive bill that would require companies

with multiple entities and locations to file as if they were one. These and other nonprofits are given, at times, to oversimplification of complex issues. The left beat the drum for SB 9, claiming that it helped small business and (my least favorite cliché) “leveled the playing field.” It didn’t really do that, as the nonpartisan New Mexico Tax Research Institute explained in its March newsletter (see nmtri.org). New Mexico’s corporate tax rate is higher than surrounding states; some on the right have suggested getting rid of it, but we can’t afford to. SB 9, which was vetoed, amounted to changing the wiper blades when the engine is knocking. On the subject of taxes, both right and left make unfounded claims.

Nanny State continues to grow

Once upon a time, it was your mother who said, “Eat your peas.” Now it’s the feds. Current law says the U.S. Department of Agriculture — not mom or dad — knows what’s best for kids to eat for lunch. USDA guidelines require child-care facilities to provide lunches consisting of meat, a serving of grain, and two servings of fruit and veggies. If mom packs your lunch and it doesn’t meet those guidelines, child-care workers on the scene must serve up additional food. This outrageous extension of the Nanny State came to light in North Carolina in January when a preschooler’s homepacked lunch came up for inspection. A zealous child-care worker, obviously familiar with the regulations, found that mom had packed a turkey and cheese sandwich, banana, potato chips and apple juice. Sound yummy? Not to the Lunch Box Police. Off to the cafeteria went the kid for a serving of, get this — chicken nuggets. The penalty for parents? A $1.25 lunch bill. North Carolina lawmakers now have the opportunity to right this ridiculous example of government intrusion into the lives of free men, women and children across this state. House Bill 503, now working its way through the General Assembly, creates an exception to the USDA guidelines for parents and guardians who pack lunches for their kids. According to a news release from Sen. Phil Berger’s office, “the bill ensures that child-care facilities are not penalized for parental choices by prohibiting state agencies from evaluating the nutritional value or adequacy of homepacked lunches.” Amen! The bill unanimously passed the Senate and has been returned to the House for another vote. While it’s true that some parents don’t take their child-rearing seriously, this intrusion goes way too far. No one with sound mind wants a child to go hungry or be under-nourished, but requiring childcare workers to police home-packed lunch boxes removes the focus from teaching and caring and wrongly places it on policing. If a child-care worker sees that a youngster is hungry, it’s good judgment to step in, but it’s bad judgment to supersede the lunch selection of a parent or guardian unless there’s a red flag. Daily Snickersand-Coke lunches from home should mean a conference with the parent. A turkey and cheese sandwich trumps chicken nuggets any day when it comes to a healthy choice. The more government steps into the lives of individuals, the more individuals relinquish their own freedom and the Nanny State grows and grows. Lunch Box Police today; Sugar Patrol tomorrow. Don’t believe it? Look at what’s happening in New York with Mayor Bloomberg’s edict on soft drinks and in Washington with the First Lady’s healthy eating initiatives.

DEAR DOCTOR K: I’m in good health and I’ve been sleeping well. But I’m tired all the time. Could my food choices be causing this lethargy? DEAR READER: Most of us experience some midafternoon drowsiness — the “3 o’clock slump” or the “4 o’clock fade.” But if you feel groggy throughout the day, that could be reason for concern. Fatigue often signals that something is wrong. Stress and depression, for example, often cause fatigue. Many diseases cause fatigue; among the more common are anemia and underactive thyroid.

The new effort against deportations

A year ago, and again six months later, the Obama administration said it was undertaking major changes to the policies that led immigration reform to look like “deportations first and questions later.” These policies created an unprecedented number of deportations, as the son of an African deported more people than any other president in U.S. history. Yet one year later, the only thing the president can show for his attempts to address these alarming numbers is more numbers, and they do not lie. They tell a story of a presi-

But this is quickly followed by an inevitable crash and feeling of lethargy. Lack of fluids. Getting enough water and other fluids is important, too. Fatigue is one of the first signs of dehydration.

A year ago, the administration said it would offer “prosecutorial discretion” that would allow immigration judges and lawyers more discretion over who should be deported. Then seven months ago, the administration said it was beginning a program of “judicial review” of more than 400,000 deportation cases in immigration court. Those cases included

On June 18, 1812, the United States declared war on Great Britain. The War of 1812 is often called the Second War of Independence. Although Americans remember the historic rallying cries of “Remember Pearl Harbor” or “Remember the Alamo,” few people remember the cry of “Remember the Raisin!” The Battle of the River Raisin was one of the bloodiest engagements during the War of 1812. It soon became know as “The River Raisin Massacre” with the rallying cry of “Remember the Raisin.” Our national anthem, “The Star-Spangled Banner,” was inspired as Frances Scott Key watched one battle. The war’s outcome boosted national self-confidence and encouraged the growing spirit of American expansionism that would shape the better part of the 19th century. Historically, libraries have been the storehouses of knowledge. Senior citizens may remember when accessing information from the library meant a personal visit or a telephone call.

Charles Martin’s “Thunder and Rain” is a well crafted and thoughtful modern love story. However, Martin mixes in plenty of guns and action for a book which should appeal to men as well as women. Ty is a third-generation Texas Ranger with a black-andwhite interpretation of what is wrong and right. Having retired from the Rangers, Ty is trying to make a living as a cattle rancher while raising his son Brodie. On his way back from seeing his ex-wife who is in rehab, Ty literally runs into a stalled car on a back road. Samantha (Sam) and her daughter are on the run after Sam found her boyfriend abusing Hope. Since the boyfriend is a decorated SWAT officer, Sam feels she can’t go to the authorities. Ty helps get the car to a truck stop, only to have the ex-boyfriend try to kidnap Sam and Hope. Seeing their desperate straits, Ty sets out to help them in any way that he can. Throughout, Martin explores the relationship between Ty and Sam, showing how by helping each other they help themselves. Both of them learn to open up and trust not only each other, but also other people. From their shared experience Ty and Sam both grow stronger while learning about their own strengths and limitations. For anyone who likes a good, strong, old-fashioned, right-or-wrong read, this book reaches out and pulls you into the story.

scrambling to remain popular with an electorate that is cansado — tired. But while the words of the Obama administration fail to trickle down to real action, the pressure from the grass roots is beginning to grow and trickle up. A group of activists called The DREAMers began their walk across Middle America to press for the president to sign an executive order to halt the deportation of all undocumented students and enlisted men and women. They are called DREAMers because they began by pushing for the DREAM Act, which would offer a path to citizenship for undocumented students and soldiers. I listened closely to Obama when he gave the speech at my alma mater, Barnard College, a few weeks ago. The president praised the turn-of-the-lastcentury suffragettes for their bravado, and applauded the radical women who owned their own voices and pushed from the street for their equal rights. The president has always turned the task of democracy back on the voters.

day. A safari can be defined as any adventurous journey or expedition. Kids of all ages are invited to journey to the library for a reading expedition. The books might include “The Happy Hippopotami,” “The Night Before Summer Vacation,” “Summer” or “What’s at the Beach?” For those in attendance during story portion, the related crafts will add to the enjoyment. The crafts could feature decorating a fan with beads and feathers, creating a spiral mobile to catch the summer breezes or making special sunglasses. The quantities of some craft items may be limited. A Zombie Infestation is expected tonight at 6:30 in the library’s Teen Area. Teens will prepare for zombies by viewing the video “In the Event of a Zombie Attack.” In addition, they will have an opportunity to create a zombie character. There will also be a reading list and display of library books with zombie characters.

Books Again

Owning a personal library is not expensive when shopping at Books Again, 404 W. Second St., the bookstore operated by Friends of the Library. During June, all non-fiction books are $1 each. This week only, the store will be open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. On Friday, Saturday and Sunday, the library’s Bondurant Room will be full of bargains donated from diverse local estates and the prices are economical. Sales will be made during regular library hours, closing a half hour before the library closure. All proceeds from the store and the estate sale are used to benefit the library. Books as gifts to yourself, your family and friends, are a gift to be enjoyed again and again.

Well, be careful what you wish for, Mr. President. The numbers, your words and the thirst on the part of the DREAMers are all coming together at the same time. You see, Mr. President, “si se puede” (yes, it can be done) was born from this ilk. These kids know about the real Cesar Chavez quote, the si se puede that came from the mouths of the poorest farmworkers fighting against the biggest land owners. People called them lunatics and idealistic dreamers. But Chavez delivered when the United Farm Workers won over corporate farmers. For these kids now, it’s not “yes, we can,” it is “si se puede.” And you can plan on hearing that chant over and over again this summer. They are the new face of the 21st-century civil-rights battle. Watch for them, because DREAMers si pueden ganar — they can win, too. Maria Hinojosa is an award-winning broadcast jour nalist.

Gallup’s mountain bike trail goes national

GALLUP, (AP) — One of the things that drew Bob Rosebrough to Gallup more than 30 years ago is the “remarkable beauty of its natural landscape.� Rosebrough, a local attorney and former mayor of Gallup, is a mountain bike enthusiast who saw enormous potential in the red mesas and high desert landscape surrounding the city. “I got tired of having to drive elsewhere to ride in trails when I knew that we had terrain that was better,� he said. This is one of the reasons he and a group of local leaders, including outdoor enthusiasts who shared his vision, started to design a mountain bike trail in the area. It was the late 1990s and they chose the rocky hills south of Gamerco because they could experience “wilderness� close to civilization, he said. When they rode for the first time on the path of the future trail, Rosebrough and friends encountered loose dirt that made it difficult for the riders. But they made it to a very high point located at about 6,480 feet from where they enjoyed an incredible view to the west, he said. They stopped and rested there. “It was a hard day because of the soft ground,� Rosebrough remembered. “But it was absolutely clear to me that it was going to be an incredible system when it was finished.� That very same corridor Rosebrough and friends explored for the first time two decades ago has become the High Desert Trail System, a recreational trail that features about

24-miles of what mountain bikers call “single track.� Because of its features and popularity among mountain bikers and hikers alike, Gallup’s High Desert T rail System was recently designated a national recreational trail by the U.S. Department of the Interior and the National Park Service. This means anyone around the world searching online for recreational trails in the United States will soon be able to find the trail in the national catalog of trails, said Karl Lohman, a member of Gallup Trails 2010 and one of the partners in the Zuni Mountain T rail Partnership. “It is very good news,� Lohman said. “It validates the efforts of a variety of local agencies and leaders in our community.� National recreation trail d e si g n a ti o n r eco g n i z es existing trails and trail s y st e m s i n t h e Un i t ed States that link communities to recreational opportunities on public lands and in local parks across t h e n a ti o n , s a i d H e l en Scully, the National Trails System program specialist National Recreation Trails coordinator, Department of the Interior.

Government launches credit card complaint database NEW YORK (AP) — The government is launching an online database of complaints about credit cards. The public can see what types of complaints people have filed against any bank that issues credit cards. They can also search complaints by ZIP code and see how banks responded. The database does not include personal information. The database goes live Tuesday. It will be maintained by the Consumer

Financial Protection Bureau, which was set up after the 2008 financial crisis to protect consumers from loans and cards with hidden fees or other traps. The CFPB is the first agency to set up a public website to track complaints about consumer financial products. The agency will use the database to track complaints and identify potential problems in the marketplace, such as a new card that carries hidden or poorly disclosed fees.

The Pentagon’s budget must be cut, but entitlement spending can be controlled without drastically altering the social safety net. “These two positions are diametrically almost opposed to each other,� said Sung Won Sohn, a California State University economics professor. “And there’s no common ground it seems.� They can’t both be right. How do voters decide which economic world they’re living in? You could try asking an economist. Republicans and Democrats alike offer up prominent names — many still arguing the supply-siders versus Keynesian debates that heated up during the Reagan administration. Did President George W.

the first ones to admit we’ve been wrong many, many times.� This time, the stakes are high. Recovery from the financial meltdown and 20072009 recession has been slow. Not even half of the 8.8 million jobs that were lost have come back. States and cities are still laying off workers. Unemployment hovers at 8.2 percent. Even for those with jobs, wages and net worth haven’t recovered. Europe’s troubles pose new threats. More problems are ahead: Annual deficits of more than a trillion dollars per year have piled up $15.7 trillion in national debt. The crush of baby boomer retirees over the next two decades threatens to ruin the nation’s finances, unless politicians slow spending on Medicare and Social Security. Anxiety about the mushrooming national debt, exacerbated by bank bailouts and stimulus spending, fueled the tea party movement that helped Republicans win control of the House in 2010. That set off a series of showdowns with Obama over taxes, spending and the federal debt ceiling.

The ongoing brinkmanship has unsettled Wall Street investors, business owners timid about hiring and plenty of voters, too. Three-quarters of Americans say the federal gover nment is too divided along party lines. Only 20 percent think it can usually work together to get things done, according to a Pew Research Center poll conducted in April. A glimmer of Washington cooperation would make a big difference for the economy right now, said Mark Zandi, chief economist at Moody’s Analytics. “If they could signal that they would be willing to work together to do something substantive and helpful,� he said, “it could ease the collective psyche and help soothe nerves.� So far, no one’s signaling a congressional kumbaya to come after the November elections. Instead, Obama is telling voters they can break the stalemate by electing Democrats. That’s a longshot — an Obama win would be unlikely to sweep Democrats into control of the House. If elected, Romney is considered more likely to enjoy a kindred Congress. But Democrats

Marchan’s defense argued he was just loaning money to a friend. But Limas spent parts of four days on the stand as the government’s key witness describing how he accepted some of the more than $250,000 in kickbacks and bribes from several attorneys, including Marchan. It was clear from

the start that the trial would be as much about Limas — and his credibility as a witness — as it was about the attorney. Limas testified that the money Marchan gave him was to head off an opposing lawyer’s attempt to sanction him for missing a court date and to land appointments as a guardian ad litem. Guardians ad litem represent the interests of people, often children, in cases and Limas described the work during Marchan’s trial as “quick, easy

Times of war bring the nation together; maybe economic peril can do the same. Are voters scared enough to push for action?

“People like low taxes. People like small government,� said David Wyss, former chief economist for Standard & Poor’s. “But then they want their Social Security and Medicare, and a strong Defense Department, and getting the airport and the roads built in their city. Nobody’s willing to tell them they can’t have it both ways.�

Sohn, who’s been following these debates since serving as an economist for Richard Nixon’s White House, said the problems are too dire this time to allow politicians to hide behind their partisan differences.

“In this situation, the worst thing you can do is to cause gridlock by trying to stick to your economic philosophy,� he said. “We want to make sure the economic ship stays afloat. If the ship sinks, all this argument is for naught.�

Texas lawyer convicted in judicial kickbacks probe BROWNSVILLE, Texas (AP) — An attorney accused of paying kickbacks to a South Texas judge was convicted Monday in the first trial stemming from a four-year federal investigation into judicial corruption in Brownsville. Port Isabel lawyer Ray Marchan was found guilty of all seven counts he faced. He was the first of 12 people swept up in the investigation of former state District Judge Abel Limas to face trial. Limas pleaded guilty to racketeering last

money.�

Federal investigators launched their investigation in Brownsville in late 2007 after receiving a tip.

Marchan was a respected civil litigator in Brownsville. He had attended Rice University and graduated from Stanford’s law school. In 2008, he was going through a divorce, and Limas said he had heard Marchan was headed for his third bankruptcy.

LAWRENCE FOSTER RECORD ASST. SPORTS EDITOR

College football coaches can teach and develop many things with incoming freshmen. Whether it is helping a quarterback recognize where a blitz is coming from or teaching a running back how to set up his blocks, coaches have a big impact on the college greenhorns. One thing they can’t teach, too much anyway, is speed, and that is something former Roswell burner Richard Medrano has in spades. On Monday, Medrano announced his decision to continue his academic and football career at Eastern New Mexico University.

Considering that speed is Medrano’s calling card, it is only fitting that the process to choose ENMU went through the express lane. “See, I wasn’t planning on (going to ENMU), then coach Josh Lynn called me and they offered,” Medrano said. “We went and saw the campus and talked to them. We kept talking and talking, and eventually I just started liking it, so I chose it.” Medrano’s father, Rick, said that the process started during the state track meet in May. “(Roswell coach Robert) Arreola is the one who told us he got a call from coach L ynn,” Rick said. “At that time, Arreola thought that

TOMLINSON CALLS IT QUITS

SAN DIEGO (AP) — LaDainian Tomlinson was in the midst of saying goodbye to the NFL when his young son, Daylen, wandered across the dais and tugged on his pant leg, wanting a little attention. Tomlinson reached down and lifted him up, holding him as carefully as he used to carry the football. Joined by his family and several former teammates, Tomlinson ended his brilliant 11-year NFL career the same way he started it — with the San Diego Chargers. Tomlinson signed a oneday contract with the Chargers on Monday and then announced his retirement. “It wasn’t because I didn’t want to play anymore. It was simply time to move on,” Tomlinson said. Tomlinson rushed for 13,684 yards, fifth all-time, and scored 162 touchdowns, third-most ever. His 145 rushing touchdowns are second-most in history. He also passed for seven touchdowns. Just as importantly, he helped the Chargers dig out from one of their worst stretches to become a force in the AFC West. He played his first nine seasons with San Diego and the last two years with the New York Jets. Tomlinson, who turns 33 on Saturday, said he knew at the end of last season that he’d probably retire. He said he was still physically capable of playing but mentioned the mental toll it takes to play at a high level. Tomlinson didn’t shed any tears, as he did two years ago after being released by the Chargers. His most memorable moment with San Diego came on Dec. 10, 2006, when he swept into the end zone late in a game against the Denver Broncos for his third touchdown of the afternoon to break Shaun Alexander’s year-old record of 28 touchdowns. Tomlinson was voted NFL MVP that season, when he set league singleseason records with 31 touchdowns, including 28 rushing, and 186 points.

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — The U.S. Open yields few birdies or big celebrations. At Olympic Club, they always come in strange places. Webb Simpson walked off the 18th green on a fogfilled Sunday evening with his face red and his legs limp, settling into a corner of the locker room to recover with his worried wife and watch Jim Furyk and Graeme McDowell chase his 1-over par 281 on the course. After a week that restored the toughest test in golf, this was not the look or score of a mediocre man. This was the 112th U.S. Open champion. Simpson saved par from the collar around the 18th green and sweated out a pair of past champions three groups behind,

becoming the latest to claim his first major title at a club that always crowns the guy nobody expects to win. “To be honest,” Simpson said, “I never thought about, and I never really wrapped my mind around winning.” With the history here, he should have known better. Olympic Club is called the “graveyard of champions” for a reason. Proven major winners who were poised to win the U.S. Open — Ben Hogan, Arnold Palmer, Tom Watson and Payne Stewart — all lost out to the underdog. And all in a painful finish. Perhaps it was only fitting that the 26-year -old Simpson went to Wake Forest on a Palmer scholarship.

Clemens acquitted

WASHINGTON (AP) — Roger Clemens was acquitted Monday on all charges that he obstructed and lied to Congress in denying he used performance-enhancing drugs to extend his long career as one of the greatest and mostdecorated pitchers in baseball history. Fierce on the pitching mound in his playing days, Clemens was quietly emotional after the verdict was announced. “I’m very thankful,” he said, choking up as he spoke. “It’s been a hard five years,” said the pitcher, who was retried after an earlier prosecution ended in a mistrial. This case was lengthy, but the deliberations were relatively brief. Jurors returned their verdict after less than 10 hours over several days. The outcome ended a 10-week trial that capped the government’s investigation of the pitcher known as “The Rocket” for the fastball that he retained into his 40s. He won seven Cy Young Awards, See CLEMENS, Page B5

MIAMI (AP) — The Miami Heat have been here before, two wins from an NBA title. The dif ference now? LeBron James isn’t letting his head get in the way of his talent. James had 29 points and 14 rebounds, and the Heat took a 2-1 series lead with a 91-85 victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder on Sunday night. Miami also won Game 3 of the finals last year, but that was its last victory as the Dallas Mavericks stormed to the title. It was a painful failure for James, who looks determined to prevent a similar collapse. “He had a game where he struggled and he kind of let that get into his mind a little bit and he was thinking too much. Now he’s playing, he’s on attack and being very aggressive,” Dwyane Wade said. “He’s playing very aggressive and that’s the difference obviously from last year to this year, and the difference in our team.” Wade had 25 points, seven rebounds and seven assists for the Heat, who “carry that pain with us” from last year, according to forward Chris Bosh. “We think about it every day and that really helps us to succeed in this series,” Bosh said. James’ poor performance was part of the problem then, but he seems on top of his game this time. His

Wade and the Heat won 91-85 to take a 2-1 lead in the series. 3-pointer sent the Heat to the fourth quarter with the lead, and he scored five straight Miami points when the Heat were building just enough cushion to hold off another late flurry by the Thunder. “Just trying to make plays,” James said. “I told you guys, last year I didn’t make enough game-changing plays, and that’s what I kind of pride myself on. I didn’t do that last year in the finals. I’m just trying to make game-changing plays,

and whatever it takes for our team to win, just trying to step up in key moments and be there for my teammates.” Game 4 is Tuesday night. Kevin Durant had 25 points for the Thunder, but picked up his fourth foul in the third quarter and had to go to the bench when they seemed to have control of the game. “It was frustrating,” See FINALS, Page B5

“Arnold has been so good to me,” Simpson said. “Just the other day, I read that story and thought about it. He’s meant so much to me and Wake Forest. Hopefully, I can get a little back for him and make him smile.” Simpson did his part in the latest familiar chapter at a club that dates to 1860. The North Carolina native emerged from the famous fog that blanketed the undulating Lake Course to make four birdies in a five-hole stretch around the turn on the final day, and convert a tough par from the thick grass around the tiny 18th green. He shot a 2-under 68 that created more pressure than two tested champions and a 14-time major winner wearing red could handle. Furyk was flawless for much of the week until he snap-hooked his tee shot on the par-5 16th hole to fall out of the lead for the first time all day. He never got it back. Need-

Sandusky defense opens with talk of reputation

BELLEFONTE, Pa. (AP) — Jerry Sandusky opened his defense in his molestation trial Monday with character witnesses who defended his reputation, including a former Penn State coach who said he knew Sandusky took boys into showers but never saw him do anything wrong. The six witnesses, one who called Sandusky a “local hero,” did little to directly counter the testimony last week by eight young men who accused the former Penn State assistant football coach of sexually abusing them when they were children. Judge John Cleland told jurors Sandusky’s defense has about a day and a half left of testimony and that they could begin deliberations on the case as early as Thursday, a quicker schedule than had been expected. Sandusky looked an Associated Press reporter in the eye and said nothing when asked if he planned to testify. Other possible defense witnesses to come include his wife, Dottie; and an expert who could dis-

ing a birdie on the final hole, his approach landed in the bunker. He crouched and clamped his teeth onto the shaft of his wedge. Furyk made bogey on the final hole and closed with a 74. “I don’t know how to put that one into words,” said Furyk, the 2003 U.S. Open champion at Olympia Fields outside Chicago, “but I had my opportunities and my chances and it was right there. It was, on that back nine, it was my tournament to win and I felt like if I went out there and shot even par, 1 under, I would have distanced myself from the field. And I wasn’t able to do so.” Neither was his playing partner. McDowell, the champion two years ago down the California coast at Pebble Beach, made four bogeys on the front nine. The Northern Irishman at least gave himself a chance with a 20-foot birdie putt on the 17th and a shot into the 18th that had him sprinting up the hill to see what kind of chance he had. The putt from about 25 feet stayed left of the hole the entire

cuss whether Sandusky has “histrionic personality disorder,” which experts have called a personality disorder characterized by inappropriate sexual behavior and erratic emotions. The list of potential witnesses also includes a physician who spoke with key prosecution witness Mike McQueary the night he said he saw Sandusky attack a child in a football team shower in 2001 and members of former football coach Joe Paterno’s family, although it was unclear how they might fit into the defense case or whether they will be called. Sandusky’s arrest led the university trustees to fire Paterno as coach in November, saying his response to the 2001 report from McQueary showed a lack of leadership. Paterno died of cancer in January. Dick Anderson, a longtime Penn State assistant and Sandusky friend who retired in January, testified that he and other members of the football staff were present when Sandusky brought young boys into the team’s showers. He said he never witnessed anything inappropriate. “If Jerry would bring someone in with The Second Mile, they had been working out, for whatever reason they came in, it was not uncommon ... with the other coaches in the shower as well,” Anderson said, referring to the charity for at-risk children Sandusky founded in 1977. Anderson, who coached at Penn State from 1970 to 1983 and again from 1990 through the 2011 season, said adults and children often shower together at gyms. He noted, for example, that it’s not unusual for him to be in the showers with boys at the YMCA. Anderson also spoke in detail about the long hours of coaching and recruiting trips required of the job, which could lay the groundwork for a defense argument that accuser testimony about regular contact with Sandusky may be inaccurate or exaggerated. Anderson said he did not know Sandusky had been barred by university administrators from taking children onto campus after the 2001 incident was reported by McQueary, although that was disclosed in court documents and has been widely and repeatedly reported since Sandusky’s arrest. When lead prosecutor Joe McGettigan asked him if that fact would surprise him,

Richard had made up his mind to go to UNM. When I talked to Arreola and told him that Richard was still interested in ENMU, (Arreola) made the phone call and they were able to work it out.” Richard, who plans on majoring in physical education and getting his coaching license, said that the expectation is that he will be moved all around to take advantage of his speed. “They are going to use me as a slot receiver and a running back, so we’ll see how that goes,” he said. The former Coyote has already started working out and plans to start throwing with for mer

way. He settled for a 73 and shared second place with Michael Thompson, who closed with a 67 and waited two hours to see if it would be good enough. Tiger Woods, starting five shots behind, played the first six holes in 6-over par and was never a factor. He shot 73 and finished six strokes back. “There’s a mixture of emotions inside me,” McDowell said. “Disappointment, deflation, pride. But mostly, just frustration.” That was the kind of week the U.S. Golf Association delivered. After Rory McIlroy shattered championship records last year at rain-softened Congressional, dry conditions at the Lake Course in San Francisco restored “golf’s toughest test” and then some. McIlroy, Masters winner Bubba Watson and top-ranked Luke Donald all missed the cut. So did last week’s winner at Memphis, Dustin Johnson, and 2010 British Open champion Louis Oosthuizen. Of the last 18 players to tee off in the final round, Simpson was

the only one to break par. He also was the lone player to shoot two rounds in the 60s on the weekend, closing with a pair of 68s. That didn’t seem likely when Simpson was six shots behind as he headed to the sixth hole, which played the toughest at Olympic. That’s where he started his big run. Simpson’s 7-iron shot landed in the rough and rolled 5 feet away for birdie. He birdied the next two holes, including a 15-footer on the par-3 eighth. And his wedge shot into the 10th settled 3 feet away, putting him in the mix for the rest of the day. “It was a cool day,” Simpson said. “I had a peace all day. I knew it was a tough golf course. I probably prayed more the last three holes than I ever did in my life.” Simpson’s approach from the fairway rough on No. 18 went just right of the green and disappeared into a hole, a circle of dirt about the size of a sprinkler cap. With a clump of grass behind the ball, he had a bold stroke for such a nervy

Anderson said yes. Prosecutors claim Sandusky targeted his victims at The Second Mile, groomed them for abuse, then moved from touching and kissing to more severe forms of sexual abuse, including in some cases oral or anal sex. Sandusky has denied the allegations against him, acknowledging he showered with boys but saying he never molested them. Earlier in the day, prosecutors told the judge they were dropping one of the 52 counts, that of felony unlawful contact with the accuser known as Victim 7. Prosecutor Frank Fina said the statute under which he was charged did not cover the time frame when the alleged act occurred. The judge ruled against defense motions that charges were too vague or nonspecific to defend and that there isn’t solid evidence of the ages of two accusers. Prosecutors rested their case after calling their 21st witness, the mother of socalled Victim 9, a recent high school graduate who testified last week that Sandusky raped him in the basement of the coach’s suburban home. The woman said her son told her that Sandusky called him late one night after the first round of charges was filed in November, asking if he would be a character witness. “He said that Jerry asked him to make an affidavit or some kind of statement on what kind of character or person he was,” she said. “Why would he call my kid after he’s being accused of things like this?” In December, prosecutors brought more charges against Sandusky, alleging he’d had forced anal sex with the boy. Victim 9’s mother said the boy’s laundry would often be short of underwear and he would claim he had thrown it away because he had an accident. Last week, the teen said Sandusky forced him to have anal sex that made him bleed. In tearful testimony, the mother described gifts Sandusky gave her son, then added: “I wish he would just give him underwear to replace the underwear I could never find in my laundry.” The defense’s case focused largely on

You probably can’t tell in the pictures, but I have. “Me and Ryan are going to start throwing together and he will be my quarterback all four years if we stay together. It is a big relief (having R yan and former Rocket David Strickland attend ENMU) because I know I won’t be the first one there and I won’t be by myself. It will be good having them next to my side. They are good guys.” The Greyhounds will be glad to have Medrano on their side because he is fast and has a good work

ethic, according to Arreola. “(ENMU) is going to get a hard-working, talented and fast individual who will do his part to make that program and team better,” he said. “He is a talented individual and he has a lot of speed. They will be able to do a few things because of his speed.” Arreola said that he told Medrano to expect to work hard at the Division II university. “The thing is, you have to work hard,” he said. “Now you are going into a program where everyone is pretty good. You have to battle. You learn from that and you have to understand nothing will be given to you. If he works hard and does what they ask him to, he will be just fine.” l.foster@rdrnews.com

Sandusky’s reputation. Anderson said he was “well thought of in every regard,” former Penn State assistant coach Booker Brooks called his reputation “exemplary, top-knotch,” and local political consultant Brent Pasquinelli, who raised money for The Second Mile, called him “a local hero.” Besides Anderson, Brooks and Pasquinelli, three other witnesses testified for the defense Monday: a woman who ran a golf-related charity to which one accuser was recommended by Sandusky, a young man who knew Sandusky through The Second Mile and vouched for his reputation and a schoolteacher who said Sandusky seemed genuinely interested in helping one of the accusers in the case. None was on the stand for more than 10 minutes. Tom Kline, a Philadelphia lawyer who represents one of the accusers, said he was served a defense subpoena on Monday, ordering him to produce a copy of the fee agreement he has made with Victim 5, along with copies of his interactions with reporters.

shot and it came out perfectly, rolling 3 feet by the hole for his much-needed par. Then, it was time to wait. It was the third time in the last seven years that no one broke par in the U.S. Open. On all three occasions, the winner was in the locker room when the tournament ended. The best bit of drama from the winner came from a chair. He seemed somewhat calm but his blonde-haired wife, Dowd, had her eyes wide open, squeezing his arm and covering her mouth watching Furyk and McDowell play the last three holes. After McDowell’s putt to force an 18-hole playoff was off, they shared a hug and a kiss. Simpson whispered a few words in his wife’s ear — “I don’t think you’ll be able to sleep now,” he said — and stayed sitting for several seconds. “When Graeme missed on 18 and I realized I had won, I just kind of shook my head in disbelief,” Simpson said. “I couldn’t believe it actually happened.”

where between 5 and 7 p.m. So it’s not possible for me to have dinner ready and waiting. Our idea of a pleasant evening is eating dinner, watching an hour or two of TV, and going to bed about 9 p.m. My husband has to drive by these neighbors’ house on his way home, so they know when he gets here — and they usually arrive shortly thereafter. I feel very uncomfortable cooking a meal and eating with non-eating company in my kitchen, so I always put dinner preparation aside and visit with them for an hour or two. It’s not unusual for us to wind up having dinner at 9 p.m. Sometimes they stay so long my husband and I are too tired to even bother. We have about had it.

DEAR ABBY: My husband, “Ted,” and I have been married for four years and have a 3-year -old son. Before we were married we talked about having at least two children.

To his credit, he got through it and has been a fantastic father to our son. He now says he doesn’t want any more children. We are

Dear Heloise: Whenever anyone sends an email to MULTIPLE PARTIES, he or she should use the “BCC” field. The reason for this is privacy. “BCC” means “blind carbon copy,” and it prevents the addresses from being seen by the recipients. I do not want someone to send my email address to everyone he or she knows, especially without asking me first. Whenever people put the names in the “To” section of an email, all of the names will appear in the email that everyone receives. Same thing if they use “CC,” which means “carbon copy.” Lloyd in California

AgEC applauds introduction of new ag energy jobs legislation

WASHINGTON—(BUSINESS WIRE)—Jun 18, 2012— The Agriculture Energy Coalition (AgEC) commends Rep. Marcy Kaptur (D-OH), and 16 other members for their leadership in introducing legislation to reauthorize and fund the most vital energy programs found in the current Farm Bill, which is scheduled to expire in September. AgEC pledges to work with Congress members to ensure the legislation serves as a model for a strong Energy Title as the House Agriculture Committee marks up a new Far m Bill. The bill’s original co-sponsors include Rep. Earl Blumenauer (D-Ore.), Rep. Leonard Boswell (D-Iowa), Rep. Bruce

Braley (D-Iowa), Rep. G.K. Butter field (D-N.C.), Rep. Donna Christensen (D-V.I.), Rep. Marcia Fudge (D-Ohio), Rep. Maurice Hinchey (D-N.Y.), Rep. Ron Kind (D-Wisc.), Rep. Barbara Lee (DCalif.), Rep. Dave Loebsack (DIowa), Rep. Ben Lujan (D-N.M.), Rep. Michael Michaud (D-Me.), Rep. Chellie Pingree (D-Me.), Rep. Laura Richardson (D-Calif.), Rep. T im R yan (D-Ohio), and Rep.

The winner of the Greek elections, conservative Antonis Samaras leaves after quick statements to the press at Greek parliament in Athens, Monday.

Rep. Kaptur’s bill, entitled the Rural Energy Investment Act (REIA) of 2012, is comprehensive far m energy legislation that would provide the U.S. Department of Agriculture with new resources and authorities to continue and broaden its vital mission of diversifying agricultural energy opportunities for farmers, businesses and rural landowners, saving or creating thousands

Oil price falls near $83 on Europe concerns NEW YORK (AP) — The price of oil fell Monday as investors’ worries about Europe shifted to Spain. U.S. West Texas Intermediate crude fell by 76 cents to end the day at $83.27 per barrel. Brent crude, which helps set the price for much of the oil imported into the U.S., slipped $1.56 to $96.05 per barrel in London. Oil prices declined as yields on Spain’s bonds soared — a sign that investors fear the country could default on its debts. That overshadowed other events in Europe, including a weekend election in Greece where voters gave a narrow victory to a party that supports a bailout of the nation’s failed economy. Europe’s crisis risks eroding oil demand in the region, and it poses a threat to slowing economies in the U.S. and China. “Oil is really reflecting concern about where the economy is headed in coming months,” said Gene McGillian, a broker and oil analyst at Tradition Ener-

gy. Investors also are watching international talks this week in Moscow over Iran’s nuclear program. But analysts have little hope for a sweeping agreement that could delay or cancel a planned European embargo of Iranian oil shipments. In the U.S., natural gas prices jumped 6.8 percent following forecasts Monday of toasty weather above 90 degrees from Denver to Chicago to the East Coast. The futures contract rose by 16.8 cents to finish at $2.635 per 1,000 cubic feet in New York. Natural gas, which is used by power companies to generate electricity, is expected to be in high demand this summer as homeowners crank up their air conditioners. Retail gasoline prices fell less than a penny to a national average of $3.505 a gallon, according to auto club AAA, Wright Express and Oil Price Information Service. A gallon of regular unleaded has dropped b y 4 3 c en ts per g all on since peaking this year

during the first week in April. It’s also 15.8 cents ch eap er t h an th e sam e time last year. In other energy trading,

Durant said. “Of course we had a good lead and they came back and made some shots. We fouled shooters on the 3-point line twice. It’s a tough break for us, man. You know, I hate sitting on the bench, especially with fouls.” The Heat survived their own fourth-quarter sloppiness — nine turnovers — by getting enough big plays from their Big Three. James scored 30 and 32 points in the first two games, his two best finals performances. He fell just shy of another 30-point effort but reached 20 points for the 20th time this postseason, two shy of Wade’s franchise record set in 2006. Gone is the player who seemed so tentative down the stretch last year in his second finals failure. He’s constantly on the attack now, all while defending Durant in key situations. “He was great. He’s been great for us all playoffs,” Heat forward Udonis Haslem said. “I don’t know if he looks up at the clock or score sheet, but he knows when we need him to make big plays and come through for us, and he comes through.” Bosh had 10 points and 11 rebounds for the Heat, who can win a second title by winning the next two games at home. That’s what they did in 2006, one of just two home teams to sweep the middle three games in the 2-3-2 format. They seemed out of it when

Oklahoma City opened a 10point lead midway through the third. But Durant had picked up his fourth foul with 5:41 left on Wade’s baseline drive, though there appeared to be little or no contact. Thunder coach Scott Brooks decided to sit Russell Westbrook with him, and the Heat charged into the lead by the end of the period. Westbrook looked angry going to the bench, but denied any frustration afterward. “Nah, man. I mean, coach’s decision,” Westbrook said. “Got to live with it.” The Thunder grabbed their last lead at 77-76 on James Harden’s basket with 7:32 left. James answered with two free throws about 20 seconds later, and the teams would trade tur novers and stops over the next couple of tense minutes. Wade then converted a three-point play, and another minute went by before James powered to the basket, Durant trying to get in position to draw a charge but watching helplessly as he picked up his fifth foul. James made the free throw for an 84-77 advantage with 3:47 to play. After another basket by James, the Thunder had one last burst — haven’t they always in this series? — ripping off six straight points to get within one before Bosh made a pair of free throws with 1:19 to play. Durant missed badly on a wild shot attempt, and the Thunder missed another chance when Westbrook was of f from behind the arc. James hit a free throw for a four -point lead with 16 seconds to go

emblematic of the league’s best pitcher each year in a 24-year career with the Red Sox, Yankees, Blue Jays and Astros. The verdict was the latest blow to the government’s legal pursuit of athletes accused of illicit drug use. A seven-year investigation into home run king Barry Bonds yielded a guilty verdict on only one count of obstruction of justice in a San Francisco court last year, with the jury deadlocked on whether Bonds lied to a grand jury when he denied knowingly taking performanceenhancing drugs. A two-year, multi-continent investigation of cyclist Lance Ar mstr ong was recently closed with no charges brought, though the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency filed formal accusations last week that could strip the seven-time Tour de France winner of his victories in that storied race. Armstrong denies any doping. In a non-drug-r elated case, the Clemens outcome also comes on the heels of the Department of Justice’s failure to gain a conviction in the high-profile corruption trial of former presidential candidate John Edwards Late Monday, as the jury foreman read the acquittal on the final count, Clemens bit his lower lip and rubbed a tear from his eye. Clemens, family members and his lawyers took turns exchanging hugs. At one point, Clemens and his four sons gathered in the middle of the courtroom, arms interlocked like football players in a huddle, and sobbing could be heard. Debbie Clemens dabbed her husband’s eyes with a tissue. Accused of cheating to achieve and extend his success — and then facing felony charges that he lied about it — Clemens declared outside the courthouse, “I put a lot of hard work into that career.” His chief lawyer, Rusty Hardin, walked up to a bank of micr ophones and exclaimed: “Wow!” Hardin said Clemens had to hustle to get to court in time to hear the verdict. “All of us had told Roger there wouldn’t be a verdict for two, three or four days, so he was actually working out with his sons almost at the Washington Monument when he got the call that there was a verdict.” Prosecutors declined to comment as they left the courthouse. But the U.S. Attorney’s Office said in a written statement, “The jury has spoken in this matter, and we thank them for their service. We respect the judicial process and the jury’s verdict.” Clemens, 49, was charged with two counts of perjury, three counts of making false statements and one count of obstructing Congress when he testified at a deposition and at a nationally televised hearing in February 2008. The charges centered on his repeated denials that he used steroids and human growth hormone during a 24-year career produced 354 victories. The first attempt to try Clemens last year ended in a mistrial when prosecutors played a snippet of video evidence

and Wade added two to close it out. “Last year I don’t know if we was experienced enough as a unit to deal with what came at us,” Wade said. “I just feel like we understand the situations more and we can deal with it better.” The Thunder were just 4 of 18 on 3-pointers and hit only 15 of 24 free throws, unusually awful numbers for one of the league’s best offensive teams. Harden, the Sixth Man of the Year, shot 2 of 10 for his nine points. Westbrook finished with 19 points. After a split of the first two games, the series made its way from Oklahoma City, where fans in blue shirts filled every seat, to Miami, where white shirts hung on empty chairs just minutes before the tip. The late arrivals in Oklahoma City had been the Thunder players, who fell into big early deficits and acknowledged some first-time finals jitters in Game 1. Brooks said he heard the cries to change his starting lineup but said it never crossed his mind. The Thunder quickly fell behind 10-4 in this one after spotting the Heat a 13-point lead in Game 1 and getting clubbed into an 18-2 hole in the opening minutes of Game 2. They didn’t let things get any worse this time, playing the Heat even from there and trailing 26-20 after one. James, Wade and Bosh combined for Miami’s first 18 points. James and Wade had some dazzling drives in the second and Shane Battier got free for a pair of 3-pointers in the final 2 minutes, but the Thunder stayed with them the

that had previously been ruled inadmissible. Still, Monday’s verdict is unlikely to settle the matter in sports circles as to whether Clemens cheated in the latter stages of a r emarkable car eer that extended into a period in which performance-enhancing drug use in baseball was thought to be prevalent. Clemens himself told Congress at the 2008 hearing that “no matter what we discuss here today, I’m never going to have my name restored.” A crucial barometer comes this fall, when Clemens’ name appears on the Hall of Fame ballot for the first time. His statistics would normally make him a shooin for baseball’s greatest honor, but voters have been reluctant to induct premier players — such as Mark McGwire and Rafael Palmeiro — whose careers were tainted by allegations of drug use. Clemens capped his career with agedefying performances. He went 18-4 and won his seventh Cy Young Award at the age of 41, and the next year posted a career-best 1.87 ERA. His 4,672 strikeouts ranked third in baseball history. The government’s case relied heavily on the testimony of Clemens’ longtime strength coach, Brian McNamee, who testified he injected Clemens with steroids in 1998, 2000 and 2001 and with HGH in 2000. McNamee produced a needle and other materials he said wer e fr om a steroids injection of Clemens in 2001, items that McNamee said he stored in and around a Miller Lite beer can inside a FedEx box for some six years. But McNamee was the only person to claim firsthand knowledge of Clemens using steroids and HGH, and even prosecutors conceded their star witness was a “flawed man.” Clemens’ lawyers relentlessly attacked McNamee’s credibility and integrity. They pointed out that his story had changed over the years and implied that he conjur ed up the allegations against Clemens to placate federal investigators. Some items associated with the beer can were found to have Clemens’ DNA and steroids, but the defense called the evidence “garbage” and claimed it had been contaminated or manipulated by McNamee. Other evidence offered tenuous links between Clemens and per for manceenhancing drugs. Former teammate Andy Pettitte recalled a conversation in which Clemens supposedly admitted using HGH, but Pettitte said under cross-examination that there was a “50-50” chance that he had misheard. Convicted drug dealer Kirk Radomski testified that he supplied McNamee with HGH for a starting pitcher and even sent a shipment to Clemens’ house under McNamee’s name, but Radomski had no way of knowing if any of the HGH was specifically used on Clemens. The pitcher’s wife, Debbie, admitted receiving an HGH shot from McNamee, but she and McNamee differed over when the injection occurred and whether Clemens was present. Clemens’ lawyers contended that the pitcher’s success resulted from a secondto-none work ethic and an intense workout regimen dating to his high school days. They said that Clemens was indeed

entire way, briefly holding a three-point lead. Westbrook’s 3-pointer with 2.3 seconds left cut Miami’s lead to 47-46. Oklahoma City started to take control with a 14-2 run early in the third. Durant had the first four points, and Westbrook fooled the Heat with a fake behind the back pass before sneaking in for a layup. Then Durant leaped over James for a follow dunk before nailing a jumper for a 60-51 lead with 6:55 left in the period. But it was barely a minute later when he drew his fourth foul. The Thunder pushed the lead to 10 on Derek Fisher’s four-point play, but the Heat got right back in it when Battier and then Jones made all six free throws after being fouled behind the arc. Brooks also pulled Westbrook with 5 minutes left and left him out the remainder of the period, leaving the Thunder without their two best players as they tried to hang onto the lead. They couldn’t. The Heat scored the final seven of the period, Wade making a turnaround jumper and two free throws before setting up James for a 3pointer that made it 69-67 headed to the final quarter. NOTES: Battier had made at least four 3-pointers in three straight games. The last player to make four in four consecutive postseason games was Orlando’s Dennis Scott in 1995. ...

Clemens was invited to testify before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee in 2008 after he publicly denied accusations made in the Mitchell Report on drugs in baseball that he had used steroids and HGH. He first appeared at a congressional deposition, where he said: “I never used steroids. Never performance-enhancing steroids.” He made a similarly categorical denial at a hearing about a week later, appearing alongside McNamee, who stuck to his story. Soon after, committee chairman Henry Waxman, D-Calif., and ranking member T om Davis, R-Va., asked the Justice Department to investigate whether Clemens had lied under oath. In 2010, a grand jury indicted him on the six counts. Clemens lawyer Hardin revealed at the time that federal prosecutors made Clemens a plea of fer but the for mer pitcher rejected it. Both Waxman and Davis accepted the verdict while defending their decision to send the case to the Justice Department. “The committee referred Mr. Clemens to the Justice Department because we had significant doubts about the truthfulness of his testimony in 2008,” Waxman said. “The decision whether Mr. Clemens committed perjury is a decision the jury had to make and I respect its decision.” Davis said, “ I think he’s gone through enough. We did the appropriate thing in referring it over to Justice. But hopefully this will put it behind him. He’s a good citizen.”

Edubigues G. Fuentes

Edubigues “Vicky” G. Fuentes, 81, of Roswell, passed away peacefully on Saturday, June 16, 2012, in Odessa, Texas. She was born in Barstow, Texas, on September 11, 1930, to Gregorio and Brijida (Muñiz) Gonzales. She moved from Pecos to Roswell in 1986 and resided there for 24 years. She was a homemaker, beloved wife, mother, and grandmother. Our mother, as we knew her, was a fierce protecting mother to her eight children, 20 grandchildren, 33 great-grandchildren, and 1 great-great-grandchild. She raised us to be strong, independent, loving, caring adults. Our mother lived her life for all of us and loved us all in her own unique way.

US sues to force return of dinosaur to Mongolia

NEW YORK (AP) — The U.S. government has filed a lawsuit in New York to force the return to Mongolia of a dinosaur fossil worth more than $1 million. Manhattan U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara (buh-RAH’-ruh) says the nearly complete Tyrannosaurus Bataar skeleton was allegedly stolen from Mongolia and brought to the U.S. with false claims that it originated in Great Britain and was worth $15,000. It was then sold at auction for more than $1 million. The lawsuit, filed Monday, names Dallas-based Heritage Auctions as a defendant. Company cofounder Jim Halperin wouldn’t comment because he said he hasn’t seen the lawsuit yet. Experts determined that the skeleton was discovered in the Gobi Desert between 1995 and 2005. Federal authorities say the remains are of tremendous cultural and historic significance to the people of Mongolia.

Woman trapped by dresser

POR TLAND, Ore. (AP) — An Oregon woman’s neighbors had reason to worry: Virginia Cartier had not picked up her Sunday newspaper and her car had not been moved. When police forced their way into her condo to check on her, they found Cartier, 67, had been pinned beneath a dresser for four days without food or water. Deputies said the dresser fell over when Cartier tried to move it in her condominium in the Portland suburb of Cedar Mill. She was treated at a hospital for injuries to both legs and released, KGW reported.
