Ruling offers rare chance at freedom


DETROIT (AP) — The Supreme Court ruling that banned states from imposing mandatory life sentences on juveniles offers an unexpected chance at freedom to more than 2,000 inmates who had almost no hope they would ever get out. In more than two dozen states, lawyers can now ask for new sentences. And judges will have discretion to look beyond the crime at other factors such as a prisoner’s age at the time of the offense, the person’s

background and perhaps evidence that an inmate has changed while incarcerated. “The sentence may still be the same,” said Lawrence Wojcik, a Chicago lawyer who co-chairs the juvenile justice committee of the American Bar Association. “But even a sentence with a chance for parole gives hope.” Virtually all of the sentences in question are for murder. When Henry Hill was an illiterate 16-year old, he was linked to a

killing at a park in Saginaw County and convicted of aiding and abetting murder.

Hill had a gun, but he was never accused of firing the fatal shot. Nonetheless, the sentence was automatic: life without parole. He’s spent the past 32 years in Michigan prisons. “I was a 16-year-old with a mentality of a 9-year-old. I didn’t understand what life without parole even

SANTA FE (AP) — A new law aimed at protecting authentic New Mexico chile is set to go into effect. The Las Cruces Sun-News reports that impostors of the state’s iconic agricultural product will be guilty of trademark infringement beginning Sunday thanks to a new protective law. The New Mexico Chile Advertising Act makes it unlawful for vendors to label fresh or processed chile as being from New Mexico unless it was actually grown in the state. Vendors subject to the law include grocers, restaurants, convenience stores, farmers’ markets and roadside vegetable stands. Hatch farmer Jimmy L ytle said Monday he’s hopeful the regulation will boost the chile industry in New Mexico. All too often, he said, retailed chile is dubbed as New Mexico-grown, when in reality, it’s from other states or other coun-

SANTA FE (AP) — The state Canvassing Board ordered recounts Tuesday in two primary election races for state Senate in which the leading candidates held nine-vote margins. The board directed counties to start the recounts July 5, and the board will meet again July 9 to certify the winners. State law requires automatic recounts when the difference between the top two candidates is less than 0.5 percent. One of the recounts is for the Republican nomination in southeastern New Mexico’s Senate District 32.

Chaves County farmer Cliff Pirtle had 1,018 votes, followed by 1,009 for Roswell Fire Chief Chad Hamill, according to the latest results outlined to the board. The eventual winner faces Senate President Pro Tem T im Jennings, DRoswell, in the November general election. The district covers parts of Chaves, Eddy and Otero counties. A recount also is necessary in the Democratic contest in western New Mexico’s Senate District 30. Clemente Sanchez, of

June’s Consumer Confidence Index falls to 62 Little Bear hurts biz See RECOUNT, Page A3

NEW YORK (AP) — Americans can’t seem to shake their uneasy feeling about the economy. Consumer confidence fell in June for the fourth straight month as worries about jobs and the overall economy outweighed relief at the gas pump and an improvement in the housing market, according to a private research group. The decline was modest; the Conference Board said Tuesday that its Consumer Confidence Index fell from 64.4 in May to 62 in June. But the four month slide from 71.6 in February is significant and corresponds with a

slowdown in hiring by U.S. companies over the same period. The index is widely watched because consumer spending accounts for 70 percent of U.S. economic activity. A reading of 90 indicates a healthy economy. The index hit an all-time low of 25.3 in February 2009. The latest survey shows that despite lower gas prices, Americans are still worried about stagnant hiring, low home values, the choppy stock market and a worsening European economy that some fear will hurt the U.S. Worries about job and

income growth weighed the heaviest on Americans in the index, which was based on a survey conducted from June 1 through June 14 of about 500 randomly selected people nationwide. The margin of error for the Consumer Confidence Index is plus or minus 5.5 points. Those stating jobs are “hard to get” increased slightly to 41.5 percent from 40.9 percent, while those expecting more jobs in the months ahead declined to 14.1 percent from 15.4 percent. The proportion of consumers expecting an increase in their incomes declined to 14.8 percent from 15.7 percent. Consumers’ dwindling confidence since February corresponds with a sharp slowdown in hiring. Hiring averaged 96,000 during the combined period of March, April and May. That marked a slowdown from the average of 252,000 a month in the prior three months. The strong hiring dur-

ing the winter helped lift the Consumer Confidence Index from 40.9 in October to the highest reading it had been in a year during February. But in the following months that hiring has slipped, so has consumer confidence. Meanwhile, a measure of the number of people applying for unemployment benefits over the past month has reached a six-month high, the government said last week. That suggests June could be another lackluster month for hiring. The gover nment releases June data on July 6. Americans also are grappling with declines in their retirement funds. After rallying earlier in the year, the stock market has lost its steam since the beginning of May amid concerns about the economy both here and abroad. The Dow Jones Industrial Average has fallen nearly 6 percent since early May. On the news of declining consumer confidence, See ECONOMY, Page A3

LAS CRUCES (AP) — One of the worst wildfires in New Mexico history is putting a damper on out-ofstate tourism to the village of Ruidoso.

The Albuquerque Journal reports that village officials recently have launched a new campaign in an attempt to bring tourists back after the Little Bear fire scorched 44,000 acres and destroyed 254 structures. The blaze never got closer than three miles of Ruidoso’s norther nmost neighborhoods. But officials say extensive media coverage of the Little Bear fire has turned away tourists.

Tom Wood, co-owner of the Story Book Cabins in Ruidoso’s Upper Canyon area, said he’s lost around 40 nights of reservations because of safety concerns.

The village’s Tourism Office has uploaded images of blue skies from a Ruidoso-based camera to digital billboards in Albuquerque and El Paso.

LONDON (AP) — The iconic Clock Tower of Britain’s Parliament — widely, though incorrectly, known as Big Ben — is being renamed in honor of Queen Elizabeth II, authorities said Tuesday. The 315-foot (96-meter)high structure, one of Britain’s most recognizable landmarks, will now formally be known as Elizabeth Tower following a campaign by lawmakers to mark the monarch’s 60 years on the throne. A House of Commons Commission statement said arrangements were being made for the “decision to be implemented in an appropriate manner in due course.” The tower was completed in 1858. It houses a fourfaced chiming clock and the famed 13.5 ton Big Ben bell. Over the years, people began calling the whole tower Big Ben. Prime Minister David Cameron, who backed the campaign for a change, said the new name was a “fitting tribute to the queen and the service she has given our country.” Opposition chief Ed Miliband, head of Britain’s Labour Party, said the honor “rightly recognized Queen Elizabeth’s lifetime of dedication and tireless service.”

CARLSBAD (AP) — The U.S. Department of Energy is searching for a site for long-term management and storage of about 10,000 metric tons of elemental mercury and its eye is on two possible locations in Eddy County. The Carlsbad Current-Argus reports that the Department of Energy is scheduled, Tuesday, to hold a public scoping meeting at the Skeen Whitlock Building in Carlsbad. Jody Knox, Carlsbad Department of Development board president, said the board voted in favor of supporting mercury storage in Eddy County. A supplemental Mercury Storage Environment Impact Statement issued this month offered Land Withdrawal Act property near the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant and another location near the federal nuclear waste storage facility as possible storage sites.

from 16 to 67. In Monday’s 5-4 decision, the high court said life without parole for juveniles violates the Constitution’s ban against cruel and unusual punishment. More than 2,000 people are in U.S. prisons under such a sentence, according to facts agreed on by attorneys for both sides of the case. It’s possible that some inmates will win immediate release. Judges could also impose new sentences carrying a specific number of years and a parole review. Some inmates could still be kept locked up for life. “Judges have options,” said Deborah LaBelle, a lawyer in Ann Arbor, Mich. “The Supreme Court said to look at juveniles individually: their age, family background, peer pressures, home environments.” Back in 1996, Saulo tion Board of Directors, is a graduate of the first Leadership Roswell class in 1984, and has since helped to organize the alumni association. “I’m extremely honored; it never occurred to me that I would be among those people (chosen),” she said. “So I’m very humbled, and I’m very appreciative of it.” Stubbs said her passion for public policy came early. “I was a 4H’er when I was 9 years old! I always tell everyone that everything I ever needed to learn, I learned in 4-H. “... I feel that I’m here to do what I can. I love public policy. ...

Record heat hampers efforts to fight wildfires WOODLAND PARK, Colo. (AP) — Searing, record-setting heat in the interior West kept its grip on firefighters struggling to contain blazes in Colorado, Utah and other Rocky Mountain states on Tuesday. Colorado has endured nearly a week of 100plus-degree days and low humidity, sapping moisture from timber and grass, creating a devastating formula for volatile wildfires across the state and punishing conditions for firefighters. All of Utah and much of Wyoming, Colorado and Montana were under a red flag warning, meaning conditions were hot, dry and ripe for fires. Tuesday was the fifth consecutive day with temperatures of 100 degrees or higher in Denver, tying a record set in 2005 and 1989. On Monday, Denver set a record with 105 degrees. The previous record for June 25 was 100 degrees in 1991. Other areas of the state also topped 100 degrees Tuesday, including the northeaster n Colorado town of Wray, which hit

Congress should look at lizard agreement process

SANTA FE — Amazing history was made last week down in the southeastern corner of New Mexico as totally divergent groups of interests got together on an agreement that saved the dunes sagebrush lizard and 20 percent of American oil output all in one fell swoop. Parties to this groundbreaking endeavor were landowners in the habitat of this evidently valuable but tiny reptile, environmentalists, members of Congress from New Mexico and Texas and officials from the federal Department of the Interior. The landowners included oil and gas companies, ranchers and private citizens in a small corner of New Mexico and West Texas. Environmentalists included those groups willing to sit down and talk rather than insisting that all landowners just get out. Members of Congress included New Mexico Sens. Jeff Bingaman and Tom Udall and New Mexico Rep. Steve




Pearce. Texas had its counterparts to our delegation. Government officials included representatives of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the federal Bureau of Land Management and various state and local agencies. Evidently this agreement is the first of its kind and should serve as a model for how these kinds of issues are dealt with, according to Sen. Tom Udall. Actually, Tom, this agreement should serve as a model for how Congress deals with all issues. We haven’t seen cooperation like this in Congress for quite some time. Not everything is sweetness and light concerning this agreement.

Roswell Daily Record

Environmental groups that didn’t participate in the talks insist that the Interior Department sold out to the politicos and the oil and gas industry and that the agreements will never work. Big oil has been most gracious about the agreements, which will cause it to dismantle quite a bit of infrastructure. They probably figure it is the best deal they are going to get in an environment so sensitive to preserving little creatures. One oil industry representative did suggest that the federal government made its decision based on the political implications of causing the oil industry headaches just before the presidential election. Maybe so, but President Obama isn’t likely to pull many votes from the oil and gas people regardless of his decision. But environmental organizations usually are big Democratic supporters and some of them aren’t a bit happy right now. As usual in such high stakes

negotiations both sides came in overstating their cases. The oil industry talked in terms of the entire Permian Basin being shut down instead of the small area where this little lizard exists. Some environmental groups said it was less than 1 percent of the basin. The WildEarth Guardians declared “There is no species more deserving of federal protection than the dunes sagebrush lizard.” The group further said that even these agreements may be too weak to keep the species from becoming extinct. I suppose if the lizard does become extinct, terrible things will happen to this Earth. I understand our world is not supposed to survive past Dec. 21 of this year anyway so maybe it doesn’t matter. All I know is that since the beginning of life on Earth, huge numbers of species have gone extinct. Maybe if they had all survived, we would have a perfect world — with dinosaurs.

Let’s hope all these agreements with each of the landowners work out because the lesser prairie chicken is following close behind. It seems like a never -ending stream of critters, evidently vital to our existence, that keep impeding businesses that carry the promise of producing more jobs. According to news reports, voluntary conservation agreements were sought between the federal government and each landowner in the lizard habitat. Landowners in about 88 percent of dunes sagebrush lizard land enrolled in the program. The cost to landowners in the program isn’t small. The fee to enroll in the program is $2 an acre. Each activity within the habitat is then charged a fee. In the case of drilling an oil well, the fee could run as high as $20,000.

Court ruling guts law

The Supreme Court Monday critically wounded Arizona’s immigration law, striking down three key provisions and sending the message that federal law trumps state law on immigration. The court should have gone one step further and killed the law altogether by striking down the noxious “show me your papers” requirement, but even there it left the measure pretty much toothless and left open the door for further litigation. The ruling is generally a victory for reasonable immigration policy, the Obama administration and many in the immigrant community. It also should mean that immigration policy and immigration reform need to be settled in the halls of Congress, not in the halls of state capitols. Congress and the Obama administration need to get to work on that. Arizona’s law was the result of understandable frustration with lack of change at the federal level, a frustration that’s felt in a number of states. Arizona’s answer was to try to impose a harsh crackdown on illegal immigrants and impose a law that superseded federal law. But the Constitution is clear; states do not have the authority to supersede or undermine federal law. The high court recognized that Monday by gutting the Arizona law. It struck down provisions requiring all immigrants to obtain or carry immigration registration papers, making it a state criminal offense for an illegal immigrant to seek work or hold a job and allowing police to arrest suspected illegal immigrants without warrants. Those provisions went beyond cooperating with federal authorities; they were an attempt to take over federal policy. And they put too much onus on the undocumented worker, not on employers who hire the worker. The court did leave intact the provision requiring police to check the immigration status of someone they suspect is in the United States illegally. But since the police can’t arrest a person simply for not having papers, it substantially weakened the provision. The court also said that provision could see further litigation, which suggests that it, too, eventually could be struck down. Still, by leaving the provision intact for now, the court leaves a wedge between law enforcement and the illegal immigrant community. If they believe they can be asked for papers any time, illegal immigrants are much less likely to report crimes or be willing to work with police. Justice Anthony Kennedy, writing for the majority, said the law should be read to avoid concerns that immigration status checks could lead to prolonged detention or racial profiling. And it’s true that the law expressly forbids racial profiling. But it’s still likely that racial profiling will rear its ugly head when law enforcement attempts to meet the requirements of the law. How many citizens carry with them proof of their citizenship? Even if it’s been reduced to a simple question, “Show me your papers” smacks too much of authoritarian regimes that like to keep their thumbs on their citizens. Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer tried to put the best face on the ruling in a written statement by saying that the ruling marks a victory for people who believe in the responsibility of states to defend their residents. “The case for SB1070 has always been about our support for the rule of law. That means every law, including those against both illegal immigration and racial profiling,” Brewer said. “Law enforcement will be held accountable should this statute be misused in a fashion that violates an individual’s civil rights.” We hope so, but we’d prefer another ruling that ensures no racial profiling by striking down the provision. In the meantime, Arizona and other states should pay attention to the gist of the ruling as spelled out by Kennedy: “Arizona may have understandable frustrations with the problems caused by illegal immigration while that process continues, but the state may not pursue policies that undermine federal law.” So if you don’t like immigration policy, and there’s a lot not to like, tell Congress — not your state legislator.

A guide for Americans under Obamacare BELFAST, Northern Ireland — Regardless of how the Supreme Court rules on the “Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act” (this was written before the decision), the Obama administration has indicated it will move forward with those parts of the unpopular law it can impose on the country. Guidebooks are helpful when going on vacation. The U.K.’s National Health Service is the best guidebook for Americans concerned where a nationalized health system might take us. For years throughout the U.K. there have been horror


DEAR DOCTOR K: What changes can I expect to my eyes and vision as I get older? DEAR READER: In most of us, nearly every part of our eyes shows changes caused by aging. As eyes age, eyelid muscles weaken and skin becomes thinner and looser. This can cause the upper lid to droop or the lower lid to sag. Tear production also drops off, and the oily film that tears provide decreases. These changes can lead to a buildup of sticky mucus, or they can dry the cornea, causing irritation

Cost-cutting, not improving the quality of care, now seems to be the major concern of the NHS. The London Daily Telegraph last week carried a story about a 71-year-old man who had been removed from treatment for pneumonia and epilepsy because he was deemed to be too old and too sick. Professor Patrick Pullicino, a senior consultant at East Kent Hospitals, told the Royal Society of Medicine of his personal intervention to save the man. He said he encountered “significant resistance” from hospital staff.

Update: disabled soldier’s pension denials continue Roswell Daily Record

Combat disabled vet denied 40 years of pension by Congress.

The 100 percent combat disabled vet we have been following the past few months has lost more than $240,000 in pension over the last 40 years. He was retired in 1972 by the Army due to his combat injuries. Each year since, he has received (from the government) a statement of what his pension amount was and is. However, he has not received his pension due to receiving Veterans Administration Disability compensation. They take back from your pension, dollarfor -dollar, what you are given in disability. Do that to a union employee, and - - - ! After several years of veteran advocates pounding Congress to do what is right (give disabled retired veterans their pension) a bill was passed in 2008 which “Congress” happily reported “ would finally allow disabled retired vets some or all of their pension.” Unfortunately, we happily rushed to the



poles to re-elect our her oes, only to find we had been “misrepresented” to (politically correct verbiage)! When you read the “determination letter” below, you will easily be able to see the game being played with our nation’s most vulnerable soldiers. When considering the congressional marketing phrase “some or all of your pension,” you would think the maximum disabled soldier (100 percent combat related, Individually Unemployable and Homebound vet) would get the “all of your pension” part of the statement. Not so, sports fans!

Our vet received his first pension check this month. It was 5 percent of his Department of Defense-established pension

ages the optic nerve. This is called glaucoma, and it can silently impair sight before symptoms develop. Your retina sends your brain messages describing the objects you see. The aging retina thins and may grow less sensitive. The macula, a small part of the retina that provides sharp, central vision, is especially prone to deterioration. Age-related macular degeneration can steal a person’s central vision. We have more information on age-related changes to vision in our Special Health Report, “The Aging Eye.” (Learn more about this report at, or call 877-649-9457 toll-free to order it.) Regular eye exams are the cornerstone of visual health as you age. Don’t wait until your vision deteriorates to have an eye exam, as often only an exam can detect eye disease in its earliest stages.

While an eye exam is the best way to catch eye disease early, there also are other ways. I discovered one way about a year ago. When doctors use an ophthalmoscope (the gadget with the light that shines inside your eye), we flip a little wheel that allows us to see deeper and deeper inside the eye. First we see the lens, and then look through the lens to the back of the eye. I realized I was having more trouble seeing the back of my patients’ eyes, and figured it was because their lenses were getting cloudy. But why would all my patients be getting cataracts? Then I realized there was another possible explanation: I was the one who was getting a cataract. (Dr. Komaroff is a physician and professor at Harvard Medical School.

($66 of his DoD defined pension of $1,149 a month—which itself is well below the established poverty level). Then the “determination letter” arrived this week. Follow the magician very closely. “Dear (soldier): the Defense Finance and Accounting Service appreciates the opportunity to serve your retired pay needs. Recently we received notification that you are eligible to receive Combat Related Special Compensation. Our r ecor ds r eflect that you were retired due to a disability. Under United States Code Title 10, Chapter 61, legislation requires an offset to your CRSC entitlement. “This means that your retired pay is computed based on your disability percentage rather than your years of service. The amount of your CRSC entitlement is reduced by the difference between what you are receiving in disability retirement and what you would be entitled to if your retired pay was being computed based on your years of service. This is

called your “Method A Offset” and is the amount by which your CRSC entitlement will be reduced. The table below shows how your CRSC entitlement is calculated. Disability Percentage Amount: $1,149, Less Years of Service Amount: $66, Method A Offset: $1083. (Then) CRSC Entitlement at 100 percent: $1,149, Less Method A Offset: $1,083, Adjusted CRSC Entitlement: $66.” If calculated on disability, 100 percent disability should mean 100 per cent pension paid. Not so! For the record, the term “offset” has been the primary issue fought over by veteran advocates against government chicanery since the first combat disabled retired (less than 20 year service) pension was eliminated. Once again, if you have less than 20 years of service (regardless of the fact your combat disability presented you from fulfilling that 20 year commitment) you will not get your disability pension if you were unable to serve 20 years. Once again, it is obvious that

When Pullicino persuaded them to resume treatment, the man recovered and was discharged. The story contained this scary sentence: “NHS hospitals are using end-of-life care to help elderly patients die because they are difficult to look after and take up valuable beds.” First the elderly, and then who? When cost becomes primary, what’s next? Suddenly “death panels” don’t seem so far-fetched. NHS “looks like a supertanker heading for an iceberg,” said Mike Farrar, chief executive of the confederation that represents organizations providing NHS services. Farrar told the Telegraph, “Despite huge efforts to maintain standards of patient care in the current financial year, health-care leaders are deeply concerned about the storm clouds that are gathering around the NHS.” For many, the storm has already struck like the torrential rain that has flooded much of the U.K. in recent days. Here’s another recent Telegraph headline: “Lives put at risk by shortage of drugs.” The story says, “Four in five NHS trusts in England and Wales say patients are suffering ‘unacceptable’ delays for drugs to treat lifethreatening conditions including cancer, Parkinson’s disease, schizophrenia and organ failure.” Drug compa-

years of service is the main factor in qualifying for pension, rather than severity of disability. Shame on you Congress.

Now, if a Congressman were to only serve five years, his pension under the CSR System would be 80% of his highest three years average salary, paid at 62 years of age (retirement date established). If our veteran were to be granted the same amenities as our Congress people, he should have received $249,600 from 40 years of retirement (retirement date set at 1972). Because he was unable to finish his 20 years, due to combat disability, he was denied that pension due to receiving disability compensation from the VA. To me, that is a direct violation of the Americans with disabilities act. I only hope we can find a lawyer (or two) who doesn’t mind suing the government based on breaking federal law.

Next week we will see if in fact you can sue the gover nment (class action)! God bless.

nies are getting better prices elsewhere in Europe and so are “rationing” them here. In the U.K., the question is not whether everyone can access “free” health care; it is the type of health care they will be able to access, and will it be high quality, or something less? If government health care isn’t working well here, why have faith it will work better in the much larger U.S.? The United States doesn’t need the NHS as a guidebook. We have our own. It’s called Medicare and Medicaid. They are going broke and cannot be sustained without more borrowed money or sharply reduced services. When human life is regarded as disposable — as with unborn babies — and cost control replaces treatment as the main objective, then anything that enables government to reduce costs is possible. It then is only a matter of conditioning the public to accept lower-quality care and rationing. Instead of keeping Obamacare, which heads in the direction of Britain’s socialized medicine and the resulting problems of reduced care and accessibility, the U.S. should enact market-based reforms in the current system (proposed by Republicans) that would expand availability and affordability while not harming the quality of great care we now have in this country.

Adopt a ‘forever friend’ today at the Roswell Humane Society

The Roswell Humane Society is a nonprofit organization which was formed in 1970 for the purpose of preventing cruelty to animals, caring for homeless pets, and the extension of humane education. They are located at 703 East McGaffey Street. The Shelter contains 36 inside-outside runs, 20 inside cages, and 18 cat cages. At this present time, they are housing 100 dogs. It also has an office, quarantine room, and a treatment room. They could not have accomplished what they have done in the past 40 years, if it weren't for the generosity of local businesses, individuals, and organizations. Their support enables the Roswell Humane Society to have the potential to fulfill their mission to realize their vision of a future where no animal is abused or neglected, and adoptable pets aren't left to fend for themselves. The Roswell Humane Society

receives no funding from any federal, state, county, or city entity. We DO NOT receive any of our funding from the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS). If you are looking to donate to your local Humane Society please send your donation directly to them. Along with the donations from our community, they also receive help from their thrift store. The thrift store accepts and appreciates all salable items, ranging from linens to vehicles, or even homes.

The Roswell Humane Society does home-checks and requires an introduction with your pets before they are able to go home. They adopt animals frequently from the Roswell Animal Services, in hopes of putting them up for adoption and save them from being euthanized. In the year 2011, the Humane Society adopted 351 animals from Roswell Animal Services. The Humane Society takes animals to PETCO once a month in an attempt to find homes for them, and also house cats there for adoption every day.

BEREA, Ohio (AP) — The rookies, their lives filling with more responsibility by the minute, have listened carefully to the personal stories of success and failure from former NFL players. The overriding messages: Control your destiny. Don’t make our mistakes. Adam “Pacman” Jones warned about the trappings of fame. Michael Vick spoke candidly about his dogfighting conviction, 23 months locked in a federal prison and a second chance. Ex-NBA player Chris Herren detailed his descent into heroin’s horror. quarterback Redskins Robert Griffin III has taken it all in during the rookie symposium, processing every word as if he was learning a new play — this one being the X’s and O’s of life. Griffin is making the most of the NFL’s four-day orientation program — now in its 15th year — for the league’s newest players, some of whom may think they know what’s ahead but in truth have little idea about what they’ll face as professional athletes. Griffin’s learning quickly. On Monday, a former Baylor basketball player was arraigned in Waco, Texas, on federal extortion charges for allegedly threatening to release “derogatory information” about Griffin unless the Heisman Trophy winner paid him a “substantial sum” of money. According to court documents, Richard Khamir Hurd, 25, contacted a representative from a St. Louis agency, threatening to publicize derogatory information about a client unless he was paid. The representative is identified in documents only by the initials B.D. Griffin’s agent is St. Louis-based Ben Dogra. Hurd met at a Waco business Friday with someone who agreed to handle the transaction. After signing a non-disclosure agreement, handing over the information and receiving a check, Hurd was arrested by an undercover FBI agent. During a youth skills clinic and barbecue on Tuesday at the Cleveland Browns’ facility, Griffin declined to comment on specifics of the case, but said his situation is a prime example of what young players have to guard against. “You’ve got to be careful who you trust,” Griffin said. “There’s vultures out there, people who are looking to climb on top of all your money.” The extortion case appears be a small bump for Griffin, who has already been named Washington’s starter and radiates with superstar-in-the-making potential. Although there were 123 NFC rookies on the field for the leaguesponsored Play 60 event, only one commanded an interview session for media members.


At long last! Roswell Daily Record




A college football playoff!

WASHINGTON (AP) — Playoffs and tournaments long have determined champions of every college sport from baseball to bowling. The exception was major college football. That ended Tuesday. Come 2014, the BCS is dead. A committee of university presidents approved a plan for a four-team playoff put forward by commissioners of the top football conferences. The new system doesn’t go too far, Virginia Tech President Charles W. Steger said. “It goes just the right amount,” he said. The move completes a six-month process for the commissioners, who have been working on a new way to determine a major college football champion after years of griping from fans. The latest configuration is certain to make even more money for the schools than the old system. “There were differences of views,” Steger said. “I think it would be a serious mistake to assume it was a rubber stamp.” Instead of simply matching the nation’s No. 1 and No. 2 teams in a title game after the regular season, the way the Bowl Championship Series has done since 1998, the new format will create a pair of national semifinals. College football fans have been clamoring for a playoff for years, and the BCS has been a constant target for criticism. Lawmakers have railed against it. A political action committee was formed, dedicated to its destruction. The Justice Department looked into whether it broke antitrust laws. Even President Obama said he wanted a playoff. Now it’s a reality. No. 1 will play No. 4, and No. 2 will play No. 3 on Dec. 31 and Jan. 1. The sites of those games will rotate among the four current BCS bowls — Rose, Orange, Fiesta and Sugar — and two more to be determined.

A swan song for Bird with Pacers? See FINALLY, Page B2

AP Photo

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — David Morway resigned Tuesday as general manager of the Indiana Pacers amid reports that Larry Bird is on the way out, too. Morway was hired by the Pacers in 1999 and had been GM since 2008. The Indianapolis Star reported Tuesday that Bird is expected to leave the Pacers, citing an unidentified person with direct knowledge of the situation. The Pacers and owner Herb Simon declined comment. The 55-year-old Bird was Pacers coach from 1997-2000, taking the team to its only NBA Finals appearance that last year, before returning to the front office in 2003. He took full control of basketball decisions after the 2007-08 season, when Donnie Walsh left to become the New York Knicks’ president. This year, Bird was the NBA Executive of the Year after building a tough, young team that lost to eventual champion Miami in six games. He is the only person in league history to win that award, the MVP award and Coach of the Year. The former Indiana State star won three MVP awards and three NBA titles during his Hall of Fame career with Boston. Bird has spent the past four years building the team into an Eastern Conference contender and said a month ago that he was willing to stay. He indicated then that he had not yet met with Simon to discuss his future. His status with the team had been the subject of speculation for months. He had stayed with the Pacers on a season-by-season basis, discussing whether to return with Simon each offseason.

Cotric, Soto sign with Victory U. Iva Cotric

Luz Soto

Two New Mexico Military Institute Bronco volleyball players recently signed national letters of intent to continue their academic and athletic careers at the next level. Hobbs native Luz Soto and Zadar, Croatia native Iva Cotric both signed letters to play volleyball at Victory University, a private Christian university in Memphis, Tenn. Cotric, an outside and middle hitter for the Broncos, finished with 67 kills, 30 aces, 23 blocks and 254 digs while playing in 41 of the team’s 42 matches during the 2011 season. She finished her career at the Institute with 84 kills, 33 aces, 27 blocks and 276 digs in 146 sets

over 56 matches. Soto played most of the season in a backup role at setter and finished with five digs in eight matches. In 2010, she had three kills, 53 assists and 14 digs. The two helped NMMI to a 28-14 mark and a berth in the NJCAA Region V West Tournament in 2011 and a 17-17 mark in 2010. They will be a part of the inaugural volleyball squad at Victory under coach Crystal Hudson, a former All-American and two-time All-SEC player at the University of Alabama. Victory is a member of both the United States Collegiate Athletic Association and the National Christian College Athletic Association.

WIMBLEDON, England (AP) — Retur ning to the court where she won her first Grand Slam championship a year ago, Petra Kvitova overcame a shaky start and a late rain delay Tuesday to open her Wimbledon title defense with a 6-4, 6-4 victory over Akgul Amanmuradova. Four-time champion Serena Williams, meanwhile, returned to the same Court 2 where big sister Venus was upset a day earlier and restored family pride by beating Barbora Zahlavova Strycova of the Czech Republic 6-2, 6-4. The fourth-seeded Kvitova fell behind 3-0 and 4-1 in the first set on Centre Court before running off seven straight games to take command against the 96th-ranked player from Uzbekistan. After Kvitova squandered a match point at 5-3 in the second set, play was suspended and the covers rolled onto the court — the first rain break of the tournament. When play resumed half an hour later, it took just three minutes to wrap up the match. After Amanmuradova won the first two points to hold for 5-4, the Czech player closed it out at love, hitting a service winner, two aces and forcing a backhand error. Following Kvitova on Centre Court was two-time champion Rafael Nadal,

and he found himself in an early hole just as she had. Nadal was down 4-0 in the opening set, but roared back to beat Brazilian lefthander Thomaz Bellucci 76 (0), 6-2, 6-3. The Spaniard closed the match with an ace down the middle, his sixth of the day. Play was later suspended for the day because of rain and poor light, leaving several matches unfinished. Three-time finalist Andy Roddick was leading

Britain’s Jamie Baker 7-6 (1), 4-2 on Court 1 when the covers came on. Tenthseeded Sara Errani, runner-up at the French Open earlier this month, was holding match point in the second set when her match against American qualifier Coco Vandeweghe was halted. In men’s play, fourthseeded Andy Murray of Britain swept to a 6-1, 6-1, See TENNIS, Page B2

The teams will be selected by a committee, similar to the way the NCAA basketball tournament field is set. The men’s tournament has 68 teams, and 37 at-large bids. The football committee will have a much tougher task, trying to whittle the field down to four. Among the factors the committee will consider is won-loss record, strength of schedule, head-tohead results and whether a team is a conference champion. This season, 125 schools will play at the highest level of college football.

Hansen caps comeback with return to Olympics

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — Brendan Hansen was done with swimming after two doses of Olympic heartache. He’s feeling a lot better now. Next stop: London. Hansen, who retired from the sport after the Beijing Games but couldn’t stay away, made his comeback worthwhile by winning the 100-meter breaststroke at the U.S. Olympic trials Tuesday night. “2008 was not lot of fun. I’m having a lot of fun right now,” Hansen said. “I’m back.” Eric Shanteau is heading back to the Olympics, too, and this time he doesn’t have to worry about battling cancer. He rallied to finish second to Hansen, pumping his fist when he saw his position, slapping hands with the winner, then running across the deck to kiss his wife. Four years ago, Shanteau beat out Hansen for an individual spot on the team shortly after being diagnosed with testicular cancer. He put off treatment until after the games and has been healthy ever since. Hansen wasn’t the only swimmer to use the second night of the trials as redemption for Olympic disappointment. Dana Vollmer, a gold medalist as a teenager in 2004, missed out on the team four years ago while battling injuries and health problems. It’s all good now. She got off to a blistering start and soared through the water to easily win the 100 butterfly. “I’m so relieved,” Vollmer said. “It was such an exciting race. I’m really overwhelmed right now.” And, oh yeah, there was another memorable race between Ryan Lochte and Michael Phelps, but there’s a bigger showdown to come. One night after Lochte beat Phelps in the 400 individual medley, Lochte edged him out again in the semifinals of the 200 freestyle. That’s just a tuneup for Wednesday night’s final, which figures to be another classic between the world’s two greatest swimmers. “Oh, that was the semifinals. It doesn’t really matter,” Lochte said. “It doesn’t matter until the finals. We’re great racers, we just want to win. We definitely kicked it in gear the last 50, me and him. We know tomorrow night is going to be a lot faster.” Said Phelps: “It’s going to be a tough race.”

“I think it’s tremendous progress,” said Washington State coach Mike Leach, a playoff proponent. “Five years ago there wasn’t even dialogue about a playoff. Instead of diving in the water, they dipped their toes in. I think it’s going to be ridiculously exciting and it’s going to generate a bunch of money. I wish they dived in.” No one has put a hard number on it yet, but this new format figures to more than double the TV revenue of the current BCS and

The current BCS deal with ESPN runs through the 2013 season. The new format will be presented to potential TV partners in the fall, starting with ESPN.

Vollmer was more than a half-second under the world-record pace at the turn, but she faded on the return lap. Not to worry. She had built such a commanding lead that she was a full body length ahead when she touched in 56.50. Claire Donahue claimed the second spot for London in 57.57. Natalie Coughlin missed on her first attempt to make her third Olympic team, fading to seventh in the eight-woman race (58.66). Also claiming a spot on the Olympic team was Allison Schmitt, who got off to a huge lead in the 400 free right from the blocks and held on to win in 4:02.84. Chloe Sutton earned the second spot in 4:04.18. Seventeen-year-old Missy Franklin was the top qualifier in the semifinals of the 100 backstroke, putting up a time (59.06) that was less than a second off Gemma Spofforth’s world record. Teenagers claimed the next three fastest times, as well: 18year-old Rachel Bootsma, 17-year-old Olivia Smoliga, and 18-year-old Elizabeth Pelton. In the night’s other races, Grevers stamped himself as a favorite in the 100 back with the top semifinal time (53.10). Olympic gold medalist Rebecca Soni used a huge finishing kick to lead the semifinals of the 100 breast (1:05.88), more than a second ahead of world-record holder Jessica Hardy (1:06.88).

6-4 win in gloomy conditions on Centre Court over Nikolay Davydenko, a former No. 3-ranked player from Russia who has dropped to No. 47 and lost in the first round for the second year in a row. Murray, who has lost in the semifinals here the past three years, is still carrying the pressure of trying to become the first British player to win the men’s title since Fred Perry in 1936. Fifth-seeded Jo-Wilfried Tsonga took apart 2002 champion Lleyton Hewitt, 6-3, 64, 6-4. The Frenchman, who beat sixtime champion Roger Federer last year to reach the semifinals, broke the Australian once in each set and never lost serve. Playing his first match since having a medical procedure on his heart, 10th-seeded Mardy Fish of the United States served 24 aces and beat Ruben Ramirez-Hidalgo of Spain 7-6 (3), 75, 7-6 (1) to reach the second round.

Home prices rise in nearly all major US cities Roswell Daily Record

Wednesday, June 27, 2012

In this April 26 file photo, a sign advertises a pending residential real estate sale in Framingham, Mass. Home prices rose in nearly all major U.S. cities in April from March, further evidence that the housing market is slowly improving even while the job market slumps.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Home prices rose in nearly all major U.S. cities in April from March, further evidence of a housing market that is slowly improving even while the job market slumps. The Standard & Poor’s/Case-Shiller home price index released Tuesday showed increases in 19 of the 20 cities tracked. That’s the second straight month that prices have risen in a majority of U.S. cities. And a measure of national prices rose 1.3 percent in April from March, the first increase in seven months. San Francisco, Washington and Phoenix posted the biggest increases in April. Prices fell 3.6 percent in Detroit, the only city to record a drop.

The month-to-month prices aren’t adjusted for seasonal factors. Still, prices in half of the cities are up over the past 12 months. Prices are increasing as the housing market has slowly started to recover. Sales of new and previously occupied homes are up over the past year, in part because mortgage rates have plunged to the lowest levels on record. Builders are more confident and are starting to build more homes. Consistent price increases benefit the broader economy. Homeowners feel wealthier, encouraging them to spend more. Rising prices also encourage more Americans to buy homes because they are more confident that their investment will appreciate

over time. “If you are no longer quite so afraid that prices are going to fall, you are more likely to buy,” said Pierre Ellis, a senior economist at Decision Economics. The S&P/Case-Shiller monthly index covers roughly half of U.S. homes. It measures prices compared with those in January 2000 and creates a three-month moving average. The April figures are the latest available. Even with the gains, the index is 34 percent below its peak reached in the summer of 2006, at the height of the housing boom. Based on the 20-city index, home prices are now at about the same level as in early 2003.

WASHINGTON (AP) — A Food and Drug Administration bill designed to increase inspections of foreign drug manufacturing sites, while also speeding up approvals of new drugs at home, is headed to the president’s desk after an overwhelming approval in the Senate.

ed. The bill also gives the FDA new tools to combat drug counterfeiting and drug shortages, which have made headlines in the past year. “This legislation will help bring critical drugs and medical devices to market faster, protect patients from drug shortages and manufactur-

ing problems, and enhance the availability of low-cost generic drugs,” said Sens. Tom Harkin, D-Iowa, and Mike Enzi, R-Wyoming, who guided the bill through the Senate. Public health experts said the most significant changes for consumers involve how

FDA inspectors oversee foreign drug manufacturing facilities. The bill passed by Congress would do away with a requirement that FDA inspect all U.S. factories every two years and give the agency more discretion to focus on foreign facilities.

high in order to have a good time with me. I tried compromising by asking him not to do it when we are together. He agreed, but he doesn’t keep his word. He does it thinking I don’t know what he’s up to. I have noticed that he is becoming forgetful and is sometimes unable to understand information. Is this a midlife crisis he’s going through? How do I get him to stop? MRS. POTHEAD IN WINONA, MINN.


DEAR ABBY: My husband, who is 53, talks often about his college days when he smoked marijuana. I tried it once and didn’t like it. Over the past several years he has started smoking it again. I have told him I don’t approve, but he says he does it only occasionally “to take the edge off.” Many times he has smoked when we’re out on bike rides, on road trips or a Sunday drive. It makes me feel like he needs to be

DEAR MRS. POTHEAD: It’s not a midlife crisis. I’m told that the grass that’s available today is far stronger than when your hubby smoked it in college. Yo u r h u s b a n d m a y b e becoming forgetful and unable to process infor mation because he’s smoking pot A LOT, or because of a



neurological problem. Because marijuana slows reaction time, he should not be driving while under the influence, and you shouldn’t be riding with him. Since you can’t convince him to stop, you could benefit fr om visiting a support group for families and friends of individuals who are addicted to drugs, because marijuana is one, and it appears your husband has become addicted. P.S. Of course, marijuana is also illegal. #####

Unscramble these four Jumbles, one letter to each square, to form four ordinary words.



DEAR LIBRA: Your instincts are right on the money. You have every right to feel betrayed, hurt and cheated on because your husband’s words don’t match his actions. What he’s doing is not “harmless fun”; it is a danger to your marriage. Do not tolerate it. Run, don’t walk, to a marriage counselor. If your husband won’t go with you, go alone because your marriage could depend upon it.

Dear Heloise: Are there any recycling ideas for USED KITCHEN SPONGES? I buy the kind with the sponge on one side and scrubber on the other. I use one for a couple of weeks (regularly disinfecting it with bleach), but hate to throw it away when I replace it. Judy S. in Florida

Now arrange the circled letters to form the surprise answer, as suggested by the above cartoon.

“just looking” at what’s out there. My concer n is, why is he looking in the first place? All I get from him is “I love you” and “I want to be with you.” I have seen these dating sites, and I feel hurt and betrayed. Am I wrong to feel this way, or should I believe what he says about harmless fun? BROKEN-HEARTED LIBRA, LOUISVILLE, KY.

Yes, Judy, there are a couple of things you can do. A lot of readers “downgrade” kitchen sponges and make them the bathroom sponge for cleaning the showers and toilets. Be sure to snip a corner to identify the sponge. You also can use the sponge only for floor spot cleaning. Just make sure you remember what function the sponge is now serving, and place it where it isn’t accidentally used for its old kitchen duties. Ick! Heloise #####

Dear Heloise: I always see what you have to say in your column before I read the obits. Here’s a hint: Make your husband’s favorite meal, including an extra-special dessert, before announcing a disaster like a dented fender on the car! Sarah C., San Antonio

Sarah, glad you read me before the obits, and hope you WON’T see me there! Heloise #####

Dear Heloise: I thought I would share some fun ways to use egg cartons. Just be sure that the egg cartons are clean and don’t have residue before using them around the house: • An excellent kindling (Heloise here: the paper ones — not the plastic or foam cartons) for those who enjoy grilling. The air space in the carton and quick-to-bur n paper make an egg carton an excellent choice for starting your fire. • Golf balls are just the right size for fitting into an egg carton, so you will know exactly where the balls are. • Egg-carton cups are the per fect size for sprouting seeds. Put a little dirt in each cup, along with a seed. Spencer M., via email Dear Heloise: Bean dip has become so pricey that I have found a way to have the same great dip at a much lower cost. I take a can of vegetarian refried beans and add 1 teaspoon of taco seasoning mix. Just stir it up and enjoy. The cans are twice the size of regular bean-dip cans, so I freeze half the dip and thaw it in the microwave. E.P. in Lubbock, Texas

The Wizard of Id

Love it, and I do almost the same thing! I add some hot sauce or a teaspoon of chili powder. I always have several cans in the pantry to be able to fix dip quickly if needed. Heloise

The Magna Carta About 800 years ago, a group of Englishmen forced their king to agree, in writing, to honor their rights. This had never been done before, and it changed the world. Centuries later, this written agreement became part of the inspiration for the United States Constitution. This document is known as the Magna Carta, or Great Charter. A charter is a written document granting rights to someone. The Mini Page talked with an expert from the U.S. National Archives to find out more about this important document. The National Archives has a permanent display of the final version of the Magna Carta, issued in 1297. It is the only original Magna Carta in the United States.

Losing their rights

art by Matthew Paris, British Library Royal

King John was known as “John Lackland� because he had no land. He was the youngest of five sons of King Henry II. Because he was the youngest son, he didn’t inherit any land. However, three brothers died when they were young. His brother, King Richard the Lionhearted, died while he was fighting in the Crusades. When Richard died, John inherited the land and became king.

This Magna Carta copy was the one reissued in 1297 by King Edward I. The 1297 Magna Carta is on display at the U.S. National Archives in Washington, D.C.

King John ruled England from 1199 to 1216. He did not care about the people he ruled. He mistreated his subjects, even those with power, such as the barons. A baron (BARE-uhn) was someone who held property. Over many years, the barons had gained certain rights. Previous kings had honored these rights. King John did not.

Earlier kings allowed barons to control their property. In return, the barons had to give money or provide knights to the kingdom. The king was supposed to get the barons’ approval to collect more taxes, but King John stopped doing that. He raised taxes every time he wanted to go to war — and he wanted to go to war all the time. The barons began refusing to pay. King John attacked the barons and their families. He committed terrible acts. For example, one time a baron could not pay what King John said he owed. King John ordered the baron’s wife and child to be put in prison, where they starved to death. The baron was killed, and John seized the baron’s lands. This art from the 1300s shows King John on a deer hunt.

Fighting Back Robin Hood

Sealed and delivered

Have you heard the legend of Robin Hood? In the stories, Robin Hood, Maid Marian and the Merry Men are fighting King John and his sheriff of Nottingham. Since King John demanded so many taxes from the barons, many barons tried to get tax money by forcing the peasants to work even harder for even less food. The lives of ordinary people were often miserable. Most people never had any rights. All women, even in wealthy families, were considered to be property. Most men were thought to be property as well. There were few free men, or freemen. Even they had few rights. In the stories, Robin Hood robs the king, rich barons and the sheriff, and gives the money to the poor. The legends of Robin Hood may have sprung from the deeds of real bandits or rebels. They may have been stories told to give the peasants hope.

The king’s seal proved he had agreed to what it said. Handwritten copies of the document, now known as the Magna Carta, were taken to all the counties and read to all freemen. By doing this, the king made the Magna Carta the law of the land. He BOUNDHIShHEIRS FOREVERvTOGRANT all freemen the rights and freedoms listed in the Magna Carta. At first, the Magna Carta had granted these rights only to barons. But by the time the final version was written, the words had been changed TOGIVETHERIGHTSTOALLhFREEMENv For the first time, kings could not do whatever they wanted. The Magna Carta said that no one was above the law, not even a king.

Demanding their rights Barons joined forces against the KING)N THEYSTORMED,ONDON 3YMPATHETIC,ONDONERSLETTHEM in the gates, and they captured the city. King John was forced to consider the barons’ demands. They demanded that the king agree to honor the rights they’d held in the past. They wrote these rights down, and the king placed his royal seal on the document.

Rights and freedoms

King John never intended to honor the Magna Carta. A few months after he agreed to it, he backed out. He entered into an agreement with Pope Innocent III, who called the document hSHAMEFULv At that time, many Pope Innocent III thought kings got the right to rule from God. So the pope’s words had a lot of power. When the king refused to honor the Magna Carta, the rebellious barons went to war against the king. The civil war lasted for two years, until King John got sick and died.

This 30-shilling note was issued by Massachusetts in 1775, near the beginning of the Revolutionary War. The soldier is holding a sword in one hand and the Magna Carta in the other hand. Paul Revere illustrated this note.

The law of the land

Women’s rights

The Magna Carta gave early Americans the idea of due process. This means people cannot be killed, taken prisoner or lose their property unless the law says it is OK. 4HE-AGNA#ARTASAIDh.O freeman shall be taken, imprisoned ‌ or in any other way destroyed ‌ except by the lawful judgment of his PEERS ORBYTHELAWOFTHELANDv The Fifth Amendment to the U.S. #ONSTITUTIONREPEATSTHISRIGHTh.O person shall ‌ be deprived of life, liberty, ORPROPERTY WITHOUTDUEPROCESSOFLAWv Before the Magna Carta, King John seized property whenever he felt like it. All he had to do was declare the land WAShFORESTv"ACKTHEN hFORESTvMEANT lands owned by the king. No one but the king could even hunt in forest land. The Magna Carta returned lands King John had taken and made it harder to twist the law in the future.

When King John died, his 9-yearold son, Henry III, became king. Adults called regents (RE-junts) took over the king’s duties until Henry was old enough to rule by himself. To build support for the young king, the regents reissued the Magna Carta in 1217. When Henry was an adult, he reissued it again, in 1225. In 1297 it was reissued one last time. It became a lasting part of English written law.

With the Magna Carta, women were granted some rights for the first time. In the 1200s, when a baron died, the man’s land went back to the king. The widow and daughters could be sold, like the rest of the property. If the king wanted to make someone else a baron, he would sell him the widow along with the land. The baron had to marry the woman to get the land. The woman had no say in the matter. The Magna Carta stopped this practice, at least for females in a baron’s family.

The Seed of Freedom

A beginning The Magna Carta granted rights to only a few people – the freemen. But it was the start of something big. Over the years, as more and more people were considered to be free, more people gained rights. The American Colonists had been granted those rights, and they fought to keep them. They used the Magna Carta as a reason to fight for their freedom.
