Top U.S. House leader tours Roswell area

SUNDAY he said is a valuable part of the Republican House majority.


Congressman Pete Sessions, RTexas, of Dallas spent Saturday touring Southeast New Mexico with the district’s Rep. Steve Pearce, R-NM, discussing issues that impact both influential U.S. House leaders before they return to a critical week in Washington. The Chairman of the powerful House Rules Committee granted an interview with the Daily Record before departing to discuss current pending legislation involving immigration reform, oil and natural gas proposals and party unity. Sessions spent time discussing regional issues with Pearce, who

“(Pearce) spends a great deal of time talking with other members about jobs, job creation and the energy industry that is a part of the value of New Mexico and really to our country,” Sessions said. “That’s why I’m here. “In difficult times, you need leaders and people who are willing to think, look and listen and don’t just immediately make a quick decision, but rather study the issues with a knowledge that we need to hear all sides,” Sessions said. “We need to make rational decisions then, we need to err on the side of how we produce a better country.”

Sessions handled legislation last week in the Rules Committee from the Natural Resources Committee regarding jurisdiction over natural gas and public lands. “The federal government and because of the activism of our president has taken those lands out of the ability for there to be production, and he is stopping and See TOP, Page A3 Courtesy Photo

Roswell Filmfest and Cosmicon


Actresses in formal dresses and actors in fancy ties make their way down the red carpet to the Roswell Filmfest and Cosmicon Gala as lights flash and cameras snap. A general murmur of conversation fills Pearson Auditorium at New Mexico Military Institute Saturday night as guests wait impa-

tiently for the crowning moment of RFC: the premiere and awards ceremony of the four sci-fi films that competed in this year’s Shootout.

As the lights dim the audience goes silent. Then out of the darkness, the stage rises to reveal QuiGon Jinn and Darth Maul, eyes locked and lightsabers drawn in preparation for battle. Their lightsabers flash back and forth, streaks of green and red, as they

Tension rises ahead of Egypt protest CAIRO (AP) — Organizers of a mass protest against Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi claimed Saturday that more than 22 million people have signed their petition demanding the Islamist leader step down, asserting that the tally was a reflection of how much the public has turned against his rule. The announcement adds to a sense of foreboding on the eve of opposition-led mass demonstrations that many fear could turn deadly and quickly spin out of control, dragging the country into a dangerous round of political violence. The demonstrations planned for Sunday reflect the growing polarization of the nation since Morsi took power, with the president and his Islamist allies in one camp and seculars, liberals, moderate Muslims

and Christians on the other. There is a sense among opponents and supporters of Morsi that Sunday’s rally is a make or break day. The opposition feels empowered by the petition, known as Tamarod, or Rebel, but it of fered no proof regarding the figures. If verified, it would mean that nearly double the number of people who voted for Morsi a year ago are now calling for him to step down. “Honestly, if (Sunday) is not a game changer, we might all just pack up our bags and leave,” said Mahmoud Salem, a prominent blogger known by his blog’s name Sandmonkey and a vocal critic of the Muslim Brotherhood, from which Morsi hails. While violence is likely in such a tense atmosphere, Salem said it would not

play out in favor of Morsi supporters because they will be outnumbered. “They have alienated everybody,” he said. Even if no violence breaks out, Salem said civil disobedience is expected in a movement designed now to “save the country.” Morsi’s supporters, on the other hand, question the petitions, saying his opponents are led by members of the ousted regime of Hosni Mubarak who are trying to orchestrate a comeback and are instigating violence. “Today and tomorrow will be the real birth of this nation,” said Hani Salaheddin, a presenter on the Muslim Brotherhood-affiliated TV station Misr 25, predicting that Sunday will bring an end to the questioning of Morsi’s mandate.

Momentous Supreme Court term ends with flourish

WASHINGTON (AP) — A historic Supreme Court term ended with a flourish of major rulings that marked a bitter defeat for racial minorities and a groundbreaking victory for gay rights, all in the space of a day. The justices struck down parts of two federal laws — the Voting Rights Act and the Defense of Marriage Act — that were passed with huge bipartisan majorities of Congress. Yet only one justice at the center of this conservativeleaning court, Anthony Kennedy, was on the winning side both times. Kennedy joined the four more conservative justices on voting rights and he was with his liberal colleagues in the gay marriage case. Just in that 24-hour span, the rulings demonstrated two truths about the court under the leadership of Chief Justice John Roberts. The 58-year-old lawyer who cut his teeth in the Reagan administration put to rest any questions he may have raised about his conservative credentials a year earlier when he cast the deciding vote to uphold President Barack Obama's health care overhaul. Roberts has shown himself to be a skillful judge who can get even ideologically differing colleagues to agree on narrow rulings that help form the basis for more See ENDS, Page A3

Legislative & Military Affairs committe to meet Monday JESSICA PALMER RECORD STAFF WRITER

The Legislative and Military Affairs Committee will meet, Monday, from 8:30 a.m. to noon in the Daniels Leadership Center at New Mexico Military Institute. Secretary of Veterans Af fairs T im Hale and Deputy Secretary of Veterans Affairs Alan Martinez are traveling from Santa Fe for the meeting. Legislative and Military Affairs Committee member, and State Representative Bob Wooley (R-District 66) will also attend, along with Sonja Brown of Veterans Health Care. One of the items on the agenda is the strategic planning and federal funding of Veterans’ cemeteries, with a report from Hale. Wooley said that Hale plans to create 11 cemeteries around the state so families of veterans do not have to drive any more than 75 miles. “These will be state cemeteries rather than federal cemeteries,” he added. The planned veterans cemetery at South Park Cemetery has yet to be

opened. The land was donated by Krumland Auto Group. The fence has been put up, but the City awaits required core samples to check area water tables. The eventual goal is to have the cemetery rated to federal standards. Other topics under discussion are access to health care and transportation to veteran’s hospitals. Currently, vets must travel to El Paso or Albuquerque for treatment. Wooley explained that the government hopes to set up some kind of fee system which would allow area vets to be treated locally. Brown, who is VHC chief of voluntary services and public affairs operations, will provide a status report of health care in Southeast New Mexico. Magil Duran, president of the Southeastern New Mexico Veterans’ Transportation Network and Vice President Greg Neal of SENVMTN will report about their activities. Neal admitted that overall federal funds for veterans are in short supply, although he reported that the transportation vehicles for

southeast New Mexico are in good repair. “Our vehicles are in good shape. They have about 100,000 miles on them. We have kept them well maintained and we think we can squeeze 150,000 miles out of them.” The final subject to be discussed is the importance for veterans to receive higher education, by University of New Mexi(UNM) Veterans’ co Resource Center Director Mandy Dykman. Wooley expressed concern that often veterans don’t understand their benefits. He said they can get help from Veteran Service Officer Richard Moncrief, whose offices are located at the David Chaves Federal Building. Wooley noted that one of the biggest problems facing New Mexico vets is homelessness, but said this issue would not be addressed at this meeting. All veterans, active-duty personnel, their families and anyone who has an interest in military or veterans’ affairs are welcome to attend this and all committee hearings.

she said. More rain is expected Sunday. The Silver Fire has charred more than 196 square miles since being sparked by lightning three weeks ago. On Saturday, crews were focused on making fire lines just outside of the wilderness area on the western flank of the fire. Fire managers were also using several helicopters for aerial firing operations aimed at reducing the fire's intensity. With the hot temperatures on Friday, the fire was extremely active. The plume reached 39,000 feet in elevation early in the day, and heavy smoke and cloud cover made gauging the fire's size overnight difficult. It wasn't until Saturday afternoon that officials updated the figure by adding nearly 20,000 acres to the tally. To the north, the Jaroso Fire has burned through more than 17 square miles of steep, rugged territory in the headwaters of the Pecos River, including portions of the Pecos Wilderness. There's no containment of that blaze, but crews were

focused on building a line in Panchuela Creek north of Jacks Creek Campground. Officials were hopeful higher humidity levels and cooler temperatures would help reduce fire activity. No evacuations have been ordered in the Pecos area, but officials were warning residents that they should be ready to leave their homes if necessary. They were also warned about potential flooding if the rains develop Sunday. Wildfires have scorched about 270 square miles in New Mexico over the past month. Some were started by lightning, while others were sparked by downed power lines. Numerous land management agencies have imposed fire restrictions, and cities and county governments have enacted fireworks restrictions and burn bans in an effort to limit the potential of a humancaused fire over the Fourth of July holiday.

Crews make slow progress on New Mexico’s largest blaze

ALBUQUERQUE (AP) — The towering plume of smoke that has been rising each afternoon from the Gila National Forest looks daunting, but firefighters assigned to what has become the largest fire currently burning in New Mexico have been able to make some progress against the flames. Fire officials reported Saturday that the Silver Fire is now 35 percent contained. "The east side is holding very well, and we had a tiny bit of rain here this afternoon," fire information officer Pamela Mathis said. While the rain passed through quickly, any boost in cloud cover and moisture can benefit the firefighters,

Fireworks exit plan

To avoid traffic congestion after the Roswell Sertoma Mike Satterfield Memorial Fireworks Extravaganza Thursday night at the Cielo Grande Recreation Area, the city’s Fire and Police Departments have developed an exit plan for drivers. Drivers leaving west on College Boulevard are advised to travel north on Sycamore Avenue. Drivers leaving east on College Boulevard are asked to turn left or right on Montana Avenue. Those traveling left are asked to continue to 19th Street. Those going right are asked to take a left on 8th Street and then a right on Union Ave. Those who choose to continue on College Boulevard are asked to turn left onto Union Avenue. Those leaving from Cielo Grande’s southside are asked to take 8th Street right and left. Those going right will need to turn left on Sycamore Avenue. No parking will be allowed on College Boulevard that evening and people are prohibited from entering the restricted area north of Cielo Grande where the fireworks will be deployed.

Local man sentenced to 51 months in prison, 3 years supervised release Roswell’s Xavier Barela, 36, was sentenced Thursday in Las Cruces Federal Court to 51 months in prison to be followed by three years of supervised release as a felon in possession of a firearm. He was arrested in May 2012, based on a criminal complaint. The indictment charged Barela with unlawfully possessing a firearm on April 21, 2012. At the time, Barela was prohibited from possessing firear ms or ammunition because he previously had been convicted of several felony offenses, including

Sessions said he believed the federal government has the ability to access revenue from the resources, provide state with revenue, develop natural resources and approve the Keystone Pipeline to lessen the nation’s reliance on foreign sources. He supported the House passage to increase energy production to unlock offshore resource-rich areas recently. “We are disappointed that the president, through his views of radical environmentalists, is not flexible to allowing our country to more further develop its resources,” Sessions said.

A special closed-door meeting is set for July 10 for House Republicans to discuss the best way to move forward with immigration. But leaders have already voiced broad opposition to the Senate proposition. New Mexico is one of only two states to provide illegal immigrants driver’s licenses. According to a 2013 report by the Federation for American Immigration Reform, the state’s policies that offer benefits and services to illegal residents cost the state’s taxpayers $717 million in annually. Sessions said immigration is an important issue to the success of this country and to people who have been here for a long time, albeit illegally. “But they have been in this country and been a part of our

Already, clashes across a string of cities north of Cairo over the past week have left eight people dead, including an American and a 14year old, and hundreds injured. Clashes broke out outside offices of the Muslim Brotherhood and its party in at least five different governorates, and rival protests turned into violent confrontations. Thousands are still taking part in rival sit-ins, in place since Friday in Tahrir Square for opponents and in an east Cairo suburb, Nasr City, for supporters of Morsi. An Associated Press reporter saw Morsi supporters at a Cairo sit-in doing military-style fitness drills, with some wearing homemade body armor and construction helmets and carrying sticks. They said they had no intention of attacking opposition protesters, and would only act in self-defense or to protect the nearby presidential palace.

First, it didn’t address border security properly. “We believe that some of the most important issues that need to be decided is border security,” Sessions said. “It’s not just the southern border. It’s the northern border, it’s the eastern seaports. It’s the San Francisco and Los Angeles seaports. It is an assault on this country and how people come in.” Sessions also said he believed at minimum, a final version should include a guest worker plan where the U.S. would allow workers in the country to gain a legal status in the process.

He urged all parties to refrain from violence and the police and military to show appropriate restraint. Adding to the tension, eight lawmakers from the country’s interim legislature announced their resignation Saturday to protest Morsi’s policies. The 270-seat chamber was elected early last year by less than 10 percent of Egypt’s eligible voters, and is dominated by Islamists who support Morsi. A legal adviser to Morsi also announced his resignation late Saturday in protest of what he said was Morsi’s insult of judges in his latest speech. With a sense of doom hanging over the country, Defense Minister Gen. Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi last Sunday gave the president and his opponents a week to reach a compromise and warned that the military would intervene to prevent the nation from entering a “dark tunnel.” Morsi had called for national reconciliation talks but of fered no specifics. Opposition leaders dismissed the call as cosmetics. Exchange of accusations was running high Saturday, in a rivalry

Sunday, June 30, 2013 “I have not been convinced yet that the Senate bill that was passed would be effective nor would this president and this administration have the desire to move it forward,” Sessions said. House leaders decided to listen to its membership, wait and see what Americans thought about the Senate proposal and begin to work on the process after this week’s break. “It’s being presented by many Democrats as a political issue against Republicans,” he said “They didn’t do it in their first term with the president, nor did they do it when they had the House for four years. It happened when they lost the majority that have began beating the drums for this to happen.” House leaders, such as Sessions, are concerned that President Obama and his administration continue to present massive overhauls, such as last week’s immigration policy, in the wake of epic unanswered scandals. “They have been incapable to

The Tamarod youth movement claimed its petition is evidence of what it says is widespread dissatisfaction with Morsi’s administration, and has used the signature drive as the focal point of its call for millions of people to take to the streets to demand the president’s ouster. Mahmoud Badr, a Tamarod leader, told reporters Saturday a total of 22,134,460 Egyptians have signed the petition. He did not say whether there had been an independent audit of the signatures. Badr blamed Morsi supporters of dragging the peaceful movement toward violence to “terrorize” the public and avert a mass turnout in the streets. On Tamarod’s Twitter account, the movement appealed to supporters to gather in every street in their hometowns instead of converging to the main rallies planned in Tahrir square and outside Morsi’s palace. At a press conference organized by Morsi supporters late Saturday for their members killed in recent violence, organizers showed multiple videos of previous protests where violence raged, showing images of attacks on the Brotherhood of fices and blaming “paid thugs” for it.

effectively run the IRS, to run the State Department, to run the Department of Justice, to run the Department of ‘You Name It,’” Sessions said. “Across the board, our president and this administration is incapable and unwilling to work within the laws of this country to offer an explanation of what they do, and they play hide the ball and do things themselves.

“The last major piece of legislation that he president has passed is called Health Care — we have yet to see them effectively make that work,” he said. “So, I think we should not move forward at this time on these big, new comprehensive deals that are very costly, incapable in seeing someone who is ineffective at managing the necessary changes and lastly to give the American people a clear understanding about that we should have to do to protect this country.”

definitive later judgments, as happened in the voting rights case. The chief justice sees a benefit to the court as an institution and to his longer-term goal of saying, "We could go farther here, but let's wait and see," said Kermit Roosevelt, a University of Pennsylvania law professor and former high court law clerk. But Roberts can move the court no further to the right than Kennedy is willing to go. Divisive civil rights cases dominated the high court's work in the past nine months, including a challenge to affirmative action in higher education that ended in a compromise ruling.

The justices also delivered important victories for business in cases that limited class-action claims and lawsuits over international human rights abuses, allowed authorities to collect DNA from people they arrest, ruled that human genes cannot be patented and called into question agreements between pharmaceutical companies that delay the entry of cheaper generic drugs on the market.

Big Brother, not Snowden and Greenwald, is the story SHELDON RICHMAN THE FUTURE OF FREEDOM FOUNDATION

“Instead of being adversaries to government power ... (the media of Washington, D.C., are) ... servants to it and mouthpieces for it.” So said the Guardian’s Glenn Greenwald, who broke the story of Edward Snowden’s disclosure of NSA spying on the American people, after Greenwald’s confrontation with Meet the Press’s David Gregory. Greenwald needn’t have limited his observation to the D.C. media. Plenty of reporters and cable-news talking heads are playing the same role in the NSA drama. Indeed, if they spent half the time investigating Obama’s Big Brother operations that they spend sneering at Snowden and Greenwald, Americans might demand that the government stop spying on them. But to much of the mainstream (and not-so-mainstream) media, Snowden and Greenwald — not


the NSA, the Obama administration, and the supine Congress — are the story — a story of villainy. The examples are endless. The day after Snowden revealed himself as the whistleblower, Joe Scarborough, the former Republican congressman and host of MSNBC’s Morning Joe, ordered his director to take the image of “that weasel” off the screen. The other day, his sidekick, Mika Brzezinski, asked, “Is there anything we can do to track him down?” She meant the government. Brzezinski went on to accuse Snowden of taking the job with NSA contractor Booz Allen Hamilton “to screw over our government.” That’s how one who speaks power to truth spins it. Snowden’s service to the American people is hardly undercut by his having taken the job intending to expose government violations of the Fourth Amendment. MSNBC’s self-identification as a progressive network is hard to square with its unrelenting assaults on Snowden and Green-

wald, and its de-emphasis of NSA surveillance. Andrea Mitchell, who functions as the network’s chief diplomatic stenographer, wondered why the NSA was hiring contractors when it could be recruiting people with the “right value system” from the military. (She’s forgotten that whistleblower Bradley Manning is in the military.) Chris Matthews of Hardball says that any foreign government that won’t turn Snowden over to the U.S. government is “no buddy of ours.” MSNBC personnel routinely describe Greenwald as “defensive,” which apparently is their code word for people who push back at stupid questions. For example, when Gregory asked Greenwald if he could be indicted for “aiding and abetting” Snowden, and Greenwald asked in return how a journalist could equate reporting with criminal activity, he was treated with disdain. Gregory even questioned Greenwald’s journalistic credentials, as did Paul Farhi of the Washington Post. I’ve focused on MSNBC because

it has so egregiously and persistently circled the wagons around the government. It’s an old story: TV hosts and reporters need access to government officials, but access is jeopardized if they antagonize those officials. Better to play it safe and sneer at Snowden and Greenwald. You don’t have to work for MSNBC to suck up to power. Oped writers from conservative David Brooks to progressive Richard Cohen have tried to portray Snowden as an alienated oddball, as though no one could have a legitimate purpose in unmasking government surveillance. (Brooks thought it relevant to write that Snowden “has not been a regular presence around his mother’s house for years.” Really!) Pundits repeatedly refer to Snowden’s having dropped out of high school, which apparently signals some serious moral or mental defect in the young man. More likely he was bored with the dull and regimented curriculum so typical of government high schools.

Others have tried to read much into Snowden’s stops in Hong Kong and Moscow. He might be a spy, they suggest. But wouldn’t a spy have kept his identity secret while selling his information to “the enemy”? It doesn’t occur to the pundits that Snowden’s priority right now is to stay out of the clutches of the U.S. government. Snowden has no moral obligation to be a martyr. Let’s not forget how Bradley Manning has been treated for his disclosures of government wrongdoing. He faces life imprisonment. Snowden and Greenwald have not “aided the enemy” — unless the American people are the government’s enemy. What they have done is embarrass the Obama administration by exposing criminal activity. For the media’s defenders of power against truth, that’s inexcusable. Sheldon Richman is vice president and editor at The Future of Freedom Foundation in Fairfax, Va. (

Happy birthday, America

This Fourth of July we pay tribute to the achievements of our nation’s founding fathers and the steadfast stewardship of the generations which built upon a foundation of freedom established 237 years ago. On July 4, 1776, the Declaration of Independence was signed in the Continental Congress in Philadelphia. It’s the day we celebrate as the birthday of the United States. That amazing document was more than just a statement of the colonies’ intent to break away from England. It was the birth certificate for new form of government. The Declaration of Independence has an importance that transcends the founding of the United States. Its justification for declaring the colonies independent of Great Britain is based on the presupposition that all people have certain natural rights which governments can’t violate. With the inking of the declaration, the role of a government was no longer seen as that of exploiting the people who lived within the borders of a particular country. Instead, the gover nment would be authorized by the people to act on their behalf and undertake functions which could not be performed by individuals. The government was charged with protecting the rights and well being of the citizenry. Should those in power fail in their responsibilities, they could be removed by the will of the people through elections. We h a v e o n l y t o l o o k a t c u r r e n t events to realize how blessed we are to live in a true democracy. Governments in other nations which proclaim to honor the desires of their people reveal themselves as frauds as they disregard elections or falsify the results. There are governments which claim to embrace freedom but enforce their rule with their military and police forces. Here in the United States, the greatest proof of our legitimacy as a democracy is our unblemished record of the p e a c e f u l t r a n s f e r o f p o w e r. W h e t h e r the president or a member of Congress, when a new office holder is elected the previous official steps aside a n d r e l i n q u i s h e s p o w e r. A m i l i t a r y coup is unthinkable. Likewise, it’s inconceivable that any elected official in our nation would resort to the threat of violence to remain in office. The will of the people alone decides who is entrusted with the authority to govern. The Declaration of Independence, and the revolution which followed that made it effective, was the first of a series of revolutions based on the concept of human rights and the responsibility of gover nment to protect them. Therefore it represents not only the birth of the United States but also the birth of freedom. So happy birthday, America. And happy birthday, freedom. DEAR DOCTOR K: I’m a rational person, but I have a deep fear of the dentist that I just can’t overcome. Any suggestions? DEAR READER: I don’t know too many people who enjoy a trip to the dentist. But the health of our teeth and gums are an important part of maintaining our dental and overall wellness. So we do it. Some of my patients have such a fear of dentists that they avoid making dental appointments at all, or cancel appointments they do make. Almost to a person, they tell me they’ve “always” been afraid of dentists. Almost surely the fear began with a visit to the dentist — maybe their first — when they were a child. Regardless of why you have this fear, there are several things you can try to get yourself into a dentist’s chair. Medications such as diazepam (Valium) and lorazepam (Ativan) may help reduce anxiety. But they are best used in combination with the fol-

Court tackles voting laws and affirmative action “Character, not circumstance, makes the person.” — Booker T. Washington The Supreme Court’s narrow 5-4 decision to strike down a central component of the 1965 Voting Rights Act, “freeing nine states, mostly in the South,” writes The New York Times, “to change their election laws without advance federal approval,” is a welcome recognition that times have changed and that especially Southern states must not forever bear a “mark of Cain” for past discrimination against racial minorities. Reaction from “civil rights groups” and liberal media out-




lets was predictable. Writing in The Washington Post, Rep. John Lewis, D-Ga., accused the court of plunging “a dagger into the heart of the Voting Rights Act.” It’s more like removing a dagger from the back of nine states and numerous counties, including Brooklyn, the Bronx and Manhattan.

black leadership network, which was largely ignored by the media, had a different reaction. It maintains, “increased fairness” had accompanied “evolving racial opinions of the American people” and thus the Voting Rights Act, as written, is no longer necessary.

This approach combines deep breathing and relaxation with gradual exposure to the thing that triggers your fear. If you’re afraid of needles, for example, you may look at pictures of a dentist’s needle in a safe environment such as at home, while practicing relaxation and breathing techniques. The goal is to help you learn to relax while confronting a trigger of your fear. — Distraction. Focusing your mind elsewhere is another way to lessen anxiety and pain.

Relaxation techniques have been used by people in Asia for thousands of years. On occasion, true nonsense can be perpetuated for thousands of years, but usually things that have lasted that long have proven their value. Recent research at Harvard Medical School has even shown that relaxation techniques literally change body chemistry. They alter which genes are tur ned on and of f. So consider this approach to your fear of the dentist. It really could work. (Dr. Komaroff is a physician and professor at Harvard Medical School.

Our freedoms have come with great sacrifice Roswell Daily Record

We got up this morning, as we do on a typical morning, taking for granted the freedoms that we enjoy as citizens of this great country of America. We have uniformed men and women serving across the world and here in our community who could accurately have a bumper sticker on their vehicle that reads, “I don’t know you, but I am willing to give my life to protect your freedoms.” Later this week we will celebrate our country’s birthday. We are able to celebrate because of those who have gone before us and those who sacrifice in service today. I like the saying, “When you drink from the well, be thankful for those who came before you and dug it.” We drink, drink some more and then drink even more without even giving a second thought to those who toiled long and hard to get the well dug. We are spoiled and don’t even know it. There was a time 237 years ago when families had to decide what their commitment was to creating a new country. British citizens had to decide whether to remain loyal to their heritage or to risk everything they had in an effort to create a governing body that had never existed before. Several years ago my family was visiting Colonial Williamsburg in Virginia. We were with a crowd of visitors watching a demonstration when a staff member asked all of the men and teenage boys to join him out in the open field. As we walked around the split-tree post fence and onto the field they handed



each one of us a piece of wood shaped similar to a rifle. While the women and children watched, the staff had us line up into rows and taught us how to hold the imitation rifles on our shoulders and how to aim and shoot them. They told us that we were going to march over a hill and there we would find the British army and we were to kill as many of them as we could. They gave us a few more minutes of instruction and then asked, “Are you ready to go?” I will tell you, I for one felt completely ill equipped to go into a life or death battle. The staf f member had made his point! He explained that those who fought for our country, many giving their lives, were not much better equipped to fight the opposing army than any of us were. These “pre-Americans” had to decide if they really wanted to make the sacrifice to “dig the well” knowing they may not be around to enjoy the fruits of their efforts. Have you ever wondered what happened to the men who signed the Declaration of Independence? Let me share with you what happened to some of these 56 brave

men who elected to undertake the risk. Five signers were captured by the British as traitors, and tortured before they died. Twelve had their homes ransacked and burned. Two lost their sons serving in the Revolutionary Army; another had two sons captured. Nine of the signers fought and died from wounds or hardships of the Revolutionary War. When they signed, they pledged their lives, their fortunes and their sacred honor. What kind of men were they? Twenty-four were lawyers and jurists. Eleven were merchants, nine were farmers and large plantation owners; men of means who were well educated. They signed the Declaration of Independence knowing full well that the penalty would be death if they were captured. Carter Braxton, of Virginia, a wealthy planter and trader, saw his ships swept from the seas by the British Navy. He sold his home and properties to pay his debts, and died in rags. Thomas McKearn was so hounded by the British that he was forced to move his family almost constantly. He served in the Congress without pay, and his family was kept in hiding. His possessions were taken from him, and poverty was his reward. Vandals or soldiers looted the properties of Dillery, Hall, Clymer, Walton, Gwinnett, Heyward, Ruttledge and Middleton. At the battle of Yorktown, Thomas Nelson Jr. noted that the British General Cornwallis had taken over the Nelson home for his headquar-

ters. He quietly urged General George Washington to open fire. The home was destroyed, and Nelson died bankrupt. Francis Lewis had his home and properties destroyed. The enemy jailed his wife, and she died within a few months. John Hart was driven from his wife’s bedside as she was dying. He gave up more than his fortune for the cause of freedom. He fled New Jersey when the British invaded but then risked his life to return home. Hart, 65, slept in caves in the woods until he finally made it home. Unfortunately, his wife had already been buried, his fields and gristmill were laid to waste, and his 13 children taken away. He died in 1779 from exhaustion and a broken heart without ever finding any of his children. Norris and Livingston suffered similar fates. Such were the stories and sacrifices of the American Revolution. These were not wild-eyed, rabble-rousing ruffians. They were soft-spoken men of means and education. They had security, but they valued liberty more. Standing tall, straight and unwavering, they pledged: “For the support of this declaration with firm reliance on the protection of the divine providence, we mutually pledge to each other, our lives, our fortunes, and our sacred honor.” In our fight for independence we, as British subjects, were fighting our own government! You see, the only difference between a revolutionary war and a civil war is who wins. My challenge to you today is to

denied the right to vote based on race, legal remedies can be pursued. Selma today, is not the Selma of 48 years ago. America has changed. In another decision involving race, the court “punted” on an affirmative action case, ordering lower courts to re-examine whether race-based admission policies at the University of Texas violate the rights of white applicants. Abigail Fisher, who is white, sued the university when she was denied admission in 2008. She believed the denial was based on race. The University of Texas argued its policies are designed to achieve greater “diversity.” ABC reports, “The justices ruled that the lower court should have required the university to prove that its program was narrowly tailored enough to produce the diversity objectives it was designed to achieve. They said ‘race-neutral’ options must be unworkable for race-based affirmative-action policies to stand.” The subtle bigotry in all of this is the attitude by too many liberals that racial minorities are in constant need of government help in order to achieve anything. The fact that the “war on poverty” was lost long ago has been lost on those

remember what the Fourth of July is truly all about. As we celebrate at our gatherings with our family and friends, we should not take for granted the freedoms we have today. They are the result of individuals and families who have sacrificed before us and families who are sacrificing now. From John Hart to our sons, daughters, husbands and wives overseas; from Abraham Lincoln to our unifor med men and women living among us protecting our communities; from our war veterans to families of military who have had to push forward with their lives after losing a loved one, we enjoy our freedoms today because of others who have paid and continue to pay a sacrifice. We enjoy the fruits of their efforts. The signers of our Declaration of Independence pledged their “lives, fortunes, and sacred honor.” Our freedoms and liberties came at great cost and are still worth the cost today. This next week, enjoy your picnic and enjoy the fireworks, but through it all remember and be grateful for those who have sacrificially given and those who continue to sacrificially give so that you can enjoy your freedoms today.

If the court recognizes the need for updating the Voting Rights Act, shouldn’t Roe v. Wade be re-examined? In light of medical advances that have made it possible for a child to survive outside the womb at much earlier stages, sonograms, born-alive legislation to protect babies who survive abortions and informed consent laws requiring full disclosure of abortion alternatives, should we really hold on to a ruling based on a 40-yearold legal case? If the court sees at least one of its past decisions in need of updating in light of progress on civil rights, shouldn’t the greatest civil right of all — the right to life — be re-visited?

Is Congress still relevant?

Dear Editor: I have been observing the activities of Congress since I was a teenager and have always had great respect for it and its place in our government. But that respect has waned to the point where I wonder if it can accomplish anything in the current political environment. It is evident to me that the ideological divide between the Democrats and the Republicans is so big that the likelihood for change is growing dim. The deadlock in Congress, which has lasted way too long, has created a vacuum in the legislative process. Our system was designed in the beginning for Congress to create law and send it to the president for his signature of acceptance and enforcement. That is no longer happening. History has shown that when such a vacuum is created, by whatever means, those wanting power and control will fill that vacuum. In effect, Congress has mostly taken itself out of the legislative process. And, the president and his administration, have stepped in to create law by executive order which in turn is enforced. The executive branch often worsens the problem because if it elects not to enforce existing laws that have been duly enacted. Where does this leave us? More and more power is being passed to the executive branch than was ever intended by our Constitution. Recent events have shown activities that have been going on in parts of the executive branch are outside the boundaries of the Constitution as well as laws passed previously by Congress and signed into law. It is still unknown whether these actions were specifically directed from the top, but my best bet it was, or a climate was created that sent the same message. People working in government agencies know their career successes come from pleasing those above. They react to what they see and hear. Signals from those above them can be very subtle but also very effective. And, in our political environment, the source or sources of those signals are so well masked one may never know who was the originating party. Congress has tried to react to this situation using its oversight authority and thus we have hearings and more hearings. And, so we have repeated requests for documents that could show what went on. Of course the executive branch reacts by delaying action and actually not providing the documents and so that process is stalled. Also, there are the hearings themselves where people are brought before committees and interrogated with little or no effect. One can’t help but wonder if members of the committee just want face time in front of the TV camera in an effort to please their constituents. I don’t have actual statistics on results from committee hearings but my observation is that seldom is anyone punished, much less prosecuted. An aside to this is the unanswered question of whether the American public actually cares about what is going on in government circles. So, why do they have hearings? Finally, one has to ask the question, “Is Congress still relevant?” Unless action is taken Congress will soon, by inaction, cede all of its powers to the executive branch. What befuddles me is that the legislative branch has not used the power of the “purse strings” to firmly re-establish its influence. The Constitution provides that appropriations must originate and be passed by Congress. Simple, no money and the executive branch is brought back to reality. Do we have 535 responsible people in Congress or do we have a group that likes their cushy jobs and the pay and perks that go with them? Is re-election now their number one priority so this will continue? History is full of failed nations where the politicians have lost their direction. Hopefully we won’t join them. William Schwartz Roswell

Assault weapons should be banned

Dear Editor: This is in reply to Mr. N. Binderman: First of all, sir, I am MRS. Lee Sides. Second, I call your words specious. I support the ban of assault weapons, not because of the way they look, but because they are made for killing as many people as possible in the shortest time. These are war weapons and should not be on our streets, nor in anyone’s home. They are simply not necessary for “protection.” As for dogs that maim or kill people, we have laws to answer those things. What I am saying is we need laws now to make it harder for the wrong people to get guns, and banning assault weapons is one way to go. If you would really read the news, and closely watch the TV news, you would see that 90 percent of Americans want better, stronger gun laws. You would also see that no one is “coming to take away your guns”! All this is IMHO, or in my humble opinion. Lee Sides Roswell

The unsolved problem

Dear Editor: Hanford, Wash., one of the Manhattan Project sites, was in the national news media this last week because the president decided to talk with the Russians about arms control. I have no problem with the Russian vs. U.S. nuclear arsenals because we won’t be using them on each other. Whether it’s 3,000 warheads, 1,500 warheads, 300 warheads it doesn’t matter. However, what does matter is all the high-grade radioactive waste that was left over at Hanford from the Manhattan Project. Should it be transferred to WIPP? Nuclear waste management has been termed “the unsolved problem” when in fact it was scientifically solved decades ago. What is really the unsolved problem is getting the politicians to act. As we all know, that little problem applies to all issues in Washington, D.C., these days, not just nuclear waste management. Washington’s approach to implementing a solution is not scientific, but political. The proposed Nuclear Waste Administration Act of 2013 is another opportunity to restructure responsibility into yet another administrative department within the federal government, reporting directly to the president; the bill establishes a new federal agency, headed by a single administrator, appointed by the president by and with the advice and consent of the Senate, to manage the current nuclear waste program, replacing DOE. It will be funded by the same 0.1 cent per kilowatt-hour tax which adds about 1 percent to the cost of electricity (paid by the consumer, check your bill) that has been in existence for decades to build the Yucca Mountain repository to be opened in the year 2010 (What happened?). Fees already collected (about $28.2 billion as of January 2013) remain in the Nuclear Waste Fund, where they will continue to be subject to appropriation. Billions have been spent and all we have is more spent nuclear fuel building up at every nuclear power plant site around the country. I have read several scientific papers on what should be done with all the radioactive sludge stored in underground

LETTERS tanks on site at Hanford. Many of the original single-wall tanks are leaking into the ground and even one of the replacement double-walled tank is now leaking. The only reason for storing this radioactive sludge is because it has some very valuable high grade plutonium in it (different from spent nuclear fuel of commercial nuclear power plants). Well folks, the cold war is over in case you haven’t noticed, so why is it necessary to continue to store this sludge or the totally insane idea of separation and reprocessing that continues to fail at Hanford after billions have been spent on it. It is time to throw in the towel and just solidify and vitrify the sludge in the tanks themselves. This process will convert the liquid to a no-leak solid. The area will have to be cordoned off for non-use forever. The worst thing that could happen is to transfer the Hanford sludge waste to WIPP here in New Mexico. I don’t oppose extending/expanding WIPP, but it needs to stay focused on dry radioactive materials like it does today. There will always be a need for burial of radioactive material that has no further commercial value. Martin Kral Roswell

Camp Invention

Dear Editor: I recently had the privilege of assisting at an excellent “hands on” science camp which was held in Roswell from June 3 through June 6. I would like to publicly give recognition to the camp director, Mrs. Margaret Bohlin. Without the hard work and perseverance of Mrs. Bohlin this camp would not have happened, and 70 children would not have had the opportunity to experience the type of creative learning situations which the camp promotes and provides. Four dedicated teachers were responsible for the activities, and four teenage counselors, and four counselors-in-training assisted them. There were, also, three dedicated parent volunteers. Thank you all for your role in the camp’s success. I was a teacher at the first Camp Invention introduced to Roswell 11 years ago. That camp and six others since have all been under the capable directorship of Mrs. Bohlin. This science camp not only provides opportunities for the children to use their own personal thinking and creative skills, but it, also, makes time for outdoor activities, where the students learn to play and share in “old-fashioned” games that were common before the invention of modern hand-held video games, iPods, etc. Technological knowledge and skills are a necessity in today’s world. However, the social skills of being able to verbally communicate well, share ideas and play cooperatively, are skills of equal importance. Camp Invention provides all these learning opportunities for elementary school children. Thank you, Mrs. Bohlin, for recognizing these needs and, once again, thank you for bringing Camp Invention to Roswell. You are very much appreciated! Sincerely, Margaret Rodriguez Roswell

Roswell community appreciated

Dear Editor: Mark Lanham and I are doing a walk across America in “Support of the U.S. Constitution” and decided to walk the historical U.S. 70 which brought us to Roswell. We agreed that the best turnout for our walk, since we started in San Diego, Calif., has been Roswell. First, there was the Red Cross staff (Gail, Mary and Kathy) who supplied us with water, snacks and a sun umbrella. Then, there was the unknown mother who pulled over and asked if her 10-year-old daughter could take a photograph of us walking. Next, the newspaper came out to interview us (Amy) and then Tom from KBIM radio, so we want to thank them. The most joyful part was the infinite cars that passed us and honked their horns to support our walk across America as we carried the American flag each step through Roswell. We are not sure who to thank at City Hall for planting so many trees on the Main Street sidewalks, but the shade was a welcome relief from the hot sun. Truly, Roswell is the best city that has given us so much support from its citizens. What a wonderful community to live in and raise a family. Warm regards, Jerry C. Oliver Mark Lanham

Evidence of evolution

Dear Editor: First, my thanks to Dr. Ellen Moore and Rick Scifres for bringing breaths of sanity to these ongoing discussions about science and religion. To their very welcome comments, I would add, for the benefit of our resident anti-evolutionists, that I’m not making any of this stuff up, and it shouldn’t be a matter of shooting the messenger when one doesn’t like the message. I’m simply reflecting things that are common knowledge in the scientific community. A familiar letter writer (“On Science,” RDR June 23), having previously told us that the Earth is only a few thousand years old, now takes issue with a widely recognized genetic argument for evolution (the one I described on June 4) by saying that “a cell without the pseudogene becomes cancerous.” Where this notion comes from one can scarcely imagine. A pseudogene is the remnant of a gene that has mutated into a form no longer capable of coding for proteins, and the writer’s statement would imply that any gene remaining expressive leads to cancer, a preposterous claim. Retro-pseudogenes are something different, representing “copy and paste” operations leaving, on rare occasions, a non-coding copy of the original gene inserted into a new place on the chromosome. It turns out that these are exceedingly powerful evidence for human evolution. Another letter writer once remarked that evolution is “mathematically impossible,” but as a mathematician I can assure everyone that the very opposite is true. Our evolutionary history has left us with about 14,000 retro-pseudogenes, and thousands of these occur in precise replica in the chimpanzee genome, though subsequently mutated along different lines than ours over the past several million years’ span of species divergence. Even if one makes extremely generous assumptions about the chance of that happening in one instance, the probability of its happening several thousand times is on the order of one trillionth of one trillionth of one percent, except with the uniquely explanatory hypothesis that chimpanzees and we have a common ancestor. In other words, unless we had common ancestors with other creatures, we simply would not be seeing what in fact we are seeing in the

Roswell Daily Record comparative genomes. It is important to look with your own eyes at evidence when it exists, which it does in abundance. Read science. Think. Be glad you live in an old, old universe. And stay out of those Creationist Museums that show humans and dinosaurs cavorting together. Those places rot the brain. Sincerely, Donald R. Burleson, Ph.D. Roswell

Republicans hurting their own reputation

Dear Editor, “We have met the enemy, and they are us.” I don’t know who first said that, but it might well have been the elected Republicans in Washington, D.C. They continue to be their own worst enemies by picking fights with President Obama and the Democrats that they have no chance, or hope, of winning. Going back to the debt limit crisis in 2011, everyone in the world knew the debt limit had to be raised. The Republicans were still against raising it, Obama and the Democrats were for raising it. It was raised and the Republicans were blamed for needlessly bringing the country to the brink of fiscal disaster for purely political reasons. The Republicans have opposed every one of Obama’s political appointments. Every appointee has been approved. The Republicans have fought “Obamacare” from the beginning. “Obamacare” is now the law of the land. The Republicans want to drastically reduce or completely eliminate the social safety nets, Medicare, Social Security and Medicaid. President Obama has opposed these changes. As a result Medicare and Social Security are unchanged. Medicaid is actually expanded. The Republicans were against repealing “don’t ask, don’t tell” Obama was for repealing it. DADT no longer exists. Republicans wanted to kill planned parenthood. Obama was for planned parenthood and planned parenthood is now alive and well. The Republicans viciously attacked two of Obama’s political appointees, Susan Rice and Hillary Clinton. Both women were completely exonerated and the Republicans ended up looking petty, mean spirited and just plain foolish. In spite of this attempted character assassination Susan Rice is now the president’s national security advisor and Hillary Clinton is the most popular political person in the country. The Republicans’ biggest losses in their fights with the president have been to last two presidential elections. The Republicans’ only success has been to defeat the bill that would require background checks on gun purchases. Ninety percent of Americans favor these background checks, but the Republicans defeated the legislation to make them mandatory and they call that a victory. The Republicans’ most recent fight with the president has been over the Benghazi incident, the IRS incident and the wire tappings. In spite of the Republicans’ relentless and vicious attempts to embarrass and besmirch the president, his approval rating has actually gone up 1 percent since the “scandal” issue began. The Republicans are losing in the scandal fight with the president and the longer they push this agenda the more they will lose with the American people and hurt the Republican brand because the people, by a three to one margin, think that jobs, the economy, taxes, immigration and the effects of the sequester are more important than the so-called scandals. I recently asked a woman what she thought of Benghazi. She replied, “I don’t even know anybody named Ben Gozzie.” A lot of people in this country don’t know Ben Gozzie, but the elected Republicans in Washington, D.C., think he is more important than jobs, taxes, food stamps the social safety nets and meals on wheels all combined. When the Republicans pick fights with the president and lose, the Republican brand is diminished. They are becoming a party of losers. One definition of insanity is doing the exact same thing over and over and expecting different results. Or betting double or nothing on the results of a football instant replay. If Republicans ever want to win anything, like maybe an election, they have to change the play, not just the uniform of the ball carrier. Randle S. Easley Roswell

Corruption of government

Dear Editor: In the late 1990s John Gotti (a well-known Mafia leader) was known as the Teflon Don due to law enforcement being unable to make his crimes stick. He has now been outdone by what one might refer to as the Obama Teflon Administration. Kathleen Seblius, Health and Human Services secretary, is being questioned if she broke the law asking for donations from private companies for an independent Obamacare project from companies she regulates. We have Hillary Clinton putting the ambassador to Libya in harm’s way without protection, failing to send help when he was under attack, which resulted in the death of three people, and then providing a totally phony scenario about Muslim video. To make sure the public was aware of the phony story the administration sent Susan Rice, our U.N. ambassador, to pump this lie on four major networks. Then we have Eric Holder defying Congress in their investigation of Fast and Furious. He followed this with his department’s tracking Associated Press telephone lines. He told Congress this type of action was wrong only to be caught tapping a FOX News reporter’s telephone. President Obama’s response was to have Mr. Holder investigate all this, sort of like having the fox guard the hen house. Spying on reporters may have backfired, however, since kicking this sleeping dog even got their liberal media friends upset. Then we are informed of the IRS harassing any conservative, and anyone opposing Obama’s agenda, that applied for tax exempt status. Now we find that the EPA and OSHA may also have been targeting conservatives. This corruption in government is systemic going back to the very roots of the Democrat administration. The arrogance of those going before Congress is staggering. Hillary Clinton said regarding Bengasi, “what difference does it make?” Susan Rice lies to the public on TV then Obama gives her a promotion as a reward. Eric Holder defies Congress on Fast and Furious and lies about knowing about tapping a reporter. IRS Commissioner Shulman visited the Whitehouse 157 times and when asked what he was there for, he said the Easter egg hunt. President Obama is guilty. We may not be able to find a smoking gun since he is too well shielded by the media and his devoted servants. He is guilty none the less. He is his party’s leader, these are predominantly his appointees and these actions are a result of his philosophy and hiring incompetent corrupt political cronies. The American public has been deceived and betrayed. President Obama has outdone President Carter as our worst president; Carter was just incompetent while Obama is both incompetent and corrupt.

Afghan museum mending but has long way to go KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) — Looters stole tens of thousands of artifacts from the National Museum of Afghanistan during the country’s civil war in the 1990s, and then thousands more were destroyed by the Taliban when they took power. Now the museum is slowly coming back to life, helped by millions of dollars in U.S. and other foreign aid. Every day 300 to 400 visitors a day come to see the collections of sculptures, jewelry, coins and other artifacts dating from the Stone Age through the 20th century. A new exhibit, “The 1,000 cities of Bactria,” focuses on a norther n region of Afghanistan that accumulated great wealth, thanks to its location along the Silk Road and several other important trade routes from China and India. But the exhibit won’t include any of the legendary “Bactrian gold,” a collection of tens of thou-

sands of gold and silver coins, crowns and jewelry more than 2,000 years old — because the museum lacks the security measures to keep it safe. Instead the collection travels the world, already displayed at the British Museum in London, the National Gallery of Art in Washington and other institutions. It is now at the Melbourne Museum in Australia. “There were a lot of problems, but year by year we’re trying to solve these,” director Omra Khan Masoudi said on a tour of the museum on AP Photo Friday. “Now it’s starting to look like a museum.” An Afghan man looks at artifacts at the National Museum in The two-floor museum is Kabul, Afghanistan, Friday. across the street from Kabul’s famous Darul pieces — was lost to loot- sive.

Islamic art. Five wooden sculptures from Nuristan dating to the 18th century, each about two meters (five to six feet) tall, loom over the end of the museum’s great hall, and a special exhibit on Buddhism in Afghanistan contains some of the first examples of sculptures depicting Buddha. “I believe the National Museum of Afghanistan can be one of the richest museums in the region, or in the world,” Masoudi said. Some $3 million from the Afghan gover nment and another $5 million from the U.S. Embassy, as well as donations from Italy, Japan and the Netherlands, have helped bring the museum to the state it is in today. Another $3 million project funded by the U.S. State Department involves experts from the University of Chicago helping to catalog and document all of the museum’s invento-

ry, after some 90 percent of object records were lost during the years of turmoil. But restoration can only go so far. Frequent power cuts, issues with heating and lighting and — above all else — insuf ficient security mean the museum needs a new building, Masoudi said. Plans are already drawn up, and the museum is planning on embarking next year on a capital campaign to raise the $30 million needed for the construction. That’s why the Bactrian gold, which had been hidden and thought lost until resur facing in 2003, is currently more valuable abroad than at home, because it raises interest in the museum. “This exhibits shows the other face of Afghanistan,” Masoudi said. “It is an ancient civilization with its own unique art — it opens a window for us to the other nations.”

China debates if ‘happy ending’ services are illegal

BEIJING (AP) — China’s law enforcers are having an unusually public debate about a delicate topic: Do paid sexual services known as “happy endings” at massage parlors count as crimes if they don’t involve actual sexual intercourse? While prostitution is illegal in China, its boundaries are being discussed with rare candor by courts, police and state media — even the usually stodgy flagship newspaper of the Communist Party. “Various places have different standards for whether masturbation services are a crime; judicial interpretation urgently needed,” read a headline of the People’s Daily newspaper, which usually spends its time lecturing party

members about discipline or obscure ideological issues. The debate centers on sexual services provided by employees of usually low-end massage parlors or hair salons, advertised to customers with colorful phrases such as “hitting the airplane” and “breast massage.” While common in Beijing and many other Chinese cities, the services became part of a conspicuous national conversation only this week, following newspaper reports about a crackdown that fizzled in southern Guangdong province. Police in the city of Foshan arrested hair salon staff for providing sexual services, only to have prostitution charges against them overturned by a local court.

Myanmar bans Time for story about monk

YANGON, Myanmar (AP) — Myanmar’s government has banned this week’s issue of T ime magazine because of a cover story about a Buddhist monk accused of fueling recent religious violence in the country. State television announced Tuesday that the decision was made “in order to prevent the recurrence of racial and religious riots.” The magazine’s cover carries a photo of a Buddhist monk, Wirathu, with the words “The Face of Buddhist Terror.” Wirathu is a leader of a radical movement of monks that preaches that the country’s small Muslim minority threatens racial purity and national security. He has called for restrictions on marriages between Buddhists and Muslims, and for boycotts of Muslimowned businesses. Nearly 250 people have died and tens of thousands, mostly Muslims, have fled their homes in religious violence in the past year. Buddhist mobs have marched through villages burning houses and mosques and brandishing machetes and clubs. A special committee led by the home minister to deal with the recent violence said the Time article could damage government efforts to build trust among people of different religions, state television said. The article quotes Wirathu as saying, “Now is the time to rise up, to make your blood boil.” Nevertheless, Witharu insists he’s a man of peace. The article has drawn anger from Buddhists. On Sunday, the President’s Office issued a statement denouncing the story and saying it damages the image of Buddhism. The recent violence has

threatened to undermine political and economic refor ms undertaken by President Thein Sein, who came to power in 2011 after almost five decades of repressive military rule. New freedoms of speech under Thein Sein have made it easier to disseminate radical views, while exposing deep-seeded racism felt by much of the population toward Muslims and other minorities.

A precedent apparently was set last year when the Foshan Intermediate People’s Court threw out a verdict against a group of salon staff, including three managers who had been sentenced to five years’ imprisonment for “organizing prostitution.” Now courts, police, prosecutors, lawyers and academics are being quoted discussing oral sex and other types of sexual services facilitated by body parts excluding genitals, typically taboo topics that have captured the public’s attention. The question is whether such services can be considered prostitution if there is no intercourse. Technically, no — at least according to the highest court in Guangdong province, which says

such services fall outside the legal definition of prostitution. On its official microblog, the court pressed the legislature to clear up the matter, saying that although no law bars such services, they “significantly damage social order and have a certain degree of social harm.” The high court in eastern Zhejiang reportedly concurs that if there is no intercourse, there’s no prostitution, but police in the capital Beijing, southern Guiyang and elsewhere disagree. The discrepancy in views is unusual in a society where police, prosecutors and courts are often seen as working in lock-step with one another. The debate also highlights how much more open urban Chinese have become in their attitudes

toward sex, as prosperity rises and government controls on personal freedoms ease. Attitudes remain more traditional in the countryside. Sociologist and sex expert Li Yinhe said the debate showed the country has come a long way since two decades ago, when displays of public affection and even dancing with members of the opposite sex could be punished. “The whole social atmosphere has changed. Even in the 1980s the crackdowns were very strong, very severe,” Li said. “... In the past, organizing prostitution used to be punishable by death.” She took in the unexpected court verdict with mock horror, saying, “This is simply too subversive.”

New format, new focus for Classic Sunday, June 30, 2013 Phone: 575-622-7710, ext. 304


Roswell Daily Record

The Rotary Desert Sun Golf Classic will undergo a major overhaul this year. The 23rd annual Classic will be played as a 36-hole two-person team event as opposed to a 54-hole individual stroke play tournament as in years past. The tournament will also feature a shotgun start on both days and the format will change every nine holes — starting with a chapman format, followed by alternate shot format, best ball format and scramble format. “This format is tons of fun and a real challeng at the same time,” said tournament co-organizer J.R. Law. “Roswell has never seen anything like it.” The charitable function of the tournament will also undergo a major change this year.

Instead of choosing a primary beneficiary from a pool of applicants, proceeds from this year’s tournament will be used to establish a nursing scholarship at Eastern New Mexico University Roswell in honor of Saul Sanchez. Sanchez, a Roswell native and former club professional at the Roswell Country Club, was killed last December during a home invasion. Sanchez was a regular at the Classic, finishing tied for 27th in last year’s professional flight after rounds of 76, 78 and 78. The Classic has raised more than $600,000 for worthwhile causes in Chaves County in its 22-year history, including $40,000 last year. The tournament will be held on July 20-21 at Spring River Golf Course. The entry fee is $250 per


player and includes green fees, cart fees and invitations to a social event at the Roswell Country Club on July 19 and the Saturday Night Gala at the home of Travis Hicks on July 20. The field is limited to 20 teams. The Classic is presented annually by the Roswell Rotary Club, the Pecos Valley Rotary Club and the Sunrise Rotary Club and sponsored by Desert Sun Motors of Roswell. For entry information, visit the Classic’s website at Kevin J. Keller Photo

Williams, Djokovic show who’s No. 1

LONDON (AP) — As the sun set on the opening week of Wimbledon, just about the only seeding that truly signified something was No. 1. That’s the number beside the names of Serena Williams and Novak Djokovic, who tur ned in nearly perfect performances back-to-back Saturday on Centre Court to cap

nearly perfect runs to the fourth round at the All England Club, while chaos reigned all around them. In the final match of the fortnight’s first half, played with the roof closed and lights glowing to make sure it would get done as darkness approached, defending champion Williams used eight aces and 11 return winners to power

past 42-year -old Kimiko Date-Krumm of Japan 6-2, 6-0 in 61 minutes. “She didn’t lose energy, and her game, I think, is getting better, day after day. Not better in general, but adapting to the surface. Everything is getting better,” said French coach Patrick Mouratoglou, who has been working with Williams over the past year,

when she is 77-3. “So now let’s enter into the most important part of the tournament. ... Now the matches are going to get tougher and tougher.” Might not necessarily have been a fair fight, considering that Date-Krumm is ranked 84th and was the oldest woman to reach the third round at Wimbledon in the 45-year Open era. Never better than a semifinalist at a Grand Slam tour nament, she played Williams evenly for about three games, before the 16time major champion took over. “She has so much power, speed,” Date-Krumm said. “She has everything.” Williams’ easy win followed the 6-3, 6-2, 6-2 victory over 28th-seeded Jeremy Chardy of France turned in by 2011 champion Djokovic, who compiled a remarkable ratio of 38 winners to three unforced errors. The Serb’s initial miscue of his own doing did not come until the third set’s sixth game, when he double-faulted while ahead 4-1, 40-love. “Everything went my

BETHESDA, Md. (AP) — Roberto Castro went from a share of the lead to five shots behind in three holes. He finished the third round of the AT&T National by hitting a 5-iron left of the 18th green and into the water. And he still managed to be part of a four-way tie for the lead. “Wild day,” he said. Not just for Castro. It was like that for just about everyone Saturday at Congressional. Bill Haas hit a wedge into the water and made triple bogey on the 11th hole to fall five shots behind. Four holes and three birdies later, he had the outright lead. He was helped by Andres Romero, who squandered a three-shot lead in two holes by hitting his tee shot into a creek.

SOUTHAMPTON, N.Y. (AP) — Inbee Park was mad, even if it didn’t show in her always placid demeanor. She had made bogey, her third straight, on a hole she thought she should have birdied, and the world’s top-ranked player was looking a bit shaky. Time for a clutch putt. Park is now one round away from history, leading the U.S. Women’s Open by four strokes. She shot 1under 71 on Saturday in harsh conditions at Sebonack and was 10 under for the tournament. Fellow South Korean I.K. Kim had a 73 to remain in second but lost two strokes to Park. With the wind whipping, the course set up long and the pin placements tricky, Park was the only player to shoot under par in the third round.

Davis hits 2 HRs as Orioles pound Yankees 11-3

BALTIMORE (AP) — Curveball, fastballs, good pitches, bad pitches, it doesn’t matter to Chris Davis. They’re all flying off his bat and into the seats at a record pace. Davis homered twice to raise his major league-leading total to 30, and the Baltimore Orioles beat the Yankees 11-3 Saturday night to extend New York’s losing streak to four games. Davis hit a three-run drive in the first inning and added a two-run shot in the sixth, his third multihomer game of the season. The five RBIs gave him 79, second-most in the big leagues and just six short of his career high. Davis is the first player in Orioles history to hit 30 home runs before the end of June. With one more long ball in the next 14 games, Davis will break the franchise record for home runs before the All-Star break, set in 1996 by Brady Anderson. “You can’t make mistakes,� Yankees manager Joe Girardi said. “We made two mistakes with two curveballs tonight. We left them up in the zone and he hit them both out. He’s not hitting 1.000, but I will say he is having a tremendous year. You have to make your pitches.� Given that Davis’ career high for home runs in a season is 33, who could have seen this coming? “I don’t think it’s anything you can predict,� Davis said. “I think it’s something you obviously work hard toward in the offseason to try and carry it into spring training and then into the season. I’m not going up there to try and hit home runs. I’m just trying to put good swings on good pitches. I think that’s the biggest thing.� Davis scored three runs and upped his batting average to .333. The five RBIs tied a season high. “You can see him grinding and working on it,� Orioles manager Buck Showalter said. “He’s not satisfied. He wants to continue to contribute at a high level for his teammates.� Ryan Flaherty also homered for the Orioles, who built a 9-0 lead in the third against David Phelps (5-5). Baltimore will seek to complete a three-game sweep on Sunday. “They’re a tough opponent and we get a chance to see them a bunch during the season, but we have a chance to go for the sweep,� Davis said. “It would be huge for us.� Zach Britton (2-2) limited the offensively

challenged, injury-riddled Yankees to one earned run over 5 2-3 innings. New York began the day ranked 26th in batting average and 23rd in runs among the 30 major league teams. Phelps surrendered nine hits and a career-high nine runs in 2 1-3 innings. The right-hander was 4-0 in his last nine starts against AL East foes since Aug. 27, 2012. “I don’t care what our offense is doing. If you give up nine runs, it’s a big hole to dig yourself out of,� Phelps said. “The last four or five games I’ve gotten good run support. It’s frustrating to go out there and not give them a chance to do it.� The Yankees have lost 12 of 17 to fall within four games of .500 (42-38) for the first time since April 26 (13-9). In addition, New York has dropped four straight in Baltimore during a single season for the first time since 1982. “You just have to keep fighting,� said Robinson Cano, who had two hits. “Hopefully, sooner or later, we’ll turn it around and start winning games so we can get closer. We got beat tonight. It’s not like we making errors. There was not much you could do.� After Britton worked out of a basesloaded jam in the top of the first, Baltimore batted around in the bottom half. Singles by Manny Machado, Nick Markakis and Adam Jones produced a run before Davis got under a 2-1 pitch and sent it soaring into the bullpen area beyond the center-field wall for a 4-0 lead. The Orioles added five runs in the third. Two walks and a single loaded the bases for Chris Dickerson, who singled in two runs. Flaherty followed with a three-run shot to chase Phelps, who was replaced by Ivan Nova. New York chased Britton in the sixth. After Zoilo Almonte hit a sacrifice fly, another run scored when Davis booted Lyle Overbay’s two-out grounder to first. With the bases loaded, Jair Jurrjens came in and retired Austin Romine on a fly ball.

way,” Djokovic said. “I did everything I wanted to do.” Both he and Williams could say that about the way they handled matters throughout Week 1. Williams has won all six sets she’s played, allowing her opponents a total of 11 games. Djokovic has won all of his nine sets, dropping 29 games. “You don’t want to play your best tennis in the first round and continue to go down. I feel like I try to play better as each match goes on,” said Williams, whose 34-match winning streak is the longest for a woman since older sister Venus had a run of 35 in 2000. “I try to find out something I can improve on from each

match so I can do it better in the next round.” In other words: Look out, Sabine Lisicki, the 23rd-seeded German who will meet Williams on Monday for a quarterfinal berth. Up next for Djokovic after the middle Sunday’s traditional day of rest is another Ger man, 13thseeded Tommy Haas, the 35-year-old who is enjoying a career renaissance and eliminated Feliciano Lopez of Spain 4-6, 6-2, 75, 6-4. How certain was Lisicki that she would be dealing with Williams and not Date-Krumm? Lisicki tweeted a photo of her with Haas early in the second set of Williams’ match, writing: “Last Ger mans standing” and “We both play the no1’s next.” Take a glance around,

“I’m just going to try to do the same thing that I did for the last three days,” Park said. “Yeah, it will be a big day. But it’s just a round of golf, and I just try not to think about it so much.” She wasn’t too disappointed by her bogeys on the 11th and 12th; those were tough holes. But on the par-5 13th, her chip on her third shot rolled into the bunker when it should have put her in position for a birdie putt. She still led by three strokes but appeared vulnerable — at least by her recently lofty standards. “That bogey was a bad bogey,” Park said, “so after that I really got my concentration going.” She was unlucky then lucky on the par4 14th. She thought her second shot would be pushed back by the wind, but it carried too far and settled on the ridge above the hole. No worries: Park simply holed a 30-foot, downhill putt for birdie. “That was a big putt for me,” she said. “Those three bogeys were very tough to

Driscoll must have felt as if he missed out on all the fun. All he did was post his third straight round in the 60s to join the leaders. Castro put the perfect finishing touch on a theatrical afternoon by taking his penalty drop from the water on No. 18 and chipping in from 80 feet for par. That enabled him to salvage an even-par 71 and claim a share of the lead with Haas (68), Driscoll (68) and Romero, who closed with six pars for a 70. “Saving a bogey would have been huge,” Castro said. “Making a par is just a bonus.” They were at 7-under 206, which means next to nothing — not with 10 players separated by three shots going into the final round, with seven of those players looking for their first PGA Tour victory. “This is as good a chance as I’ve had for sure,”

and a high seeding has mattered very little, with the notable exception of No. 2 Andy Murray, Djokovic’s potential foe in the final. Indeed, in many cases, any seeding at all has guaranteed nothing whatsoever. The men’s Nos. 3, 5, 6, 9 and 10 are all gone, including Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal, with their 29 combined Grand Slam titles. The women’s Nos. 2, 3, 5, 7, 9 and 10 are out, too, including four-time major champion Maria Sharapova and two-time Australian Open winner Victoria Azarenka. Even during a pair of victories Saturday, both No. 4-seeded players, David Ferrer and Agnieszka Rawdwanska, looked shaky. Ferrer, the French Open runner -up this month, was treated for

handle in the kind of situation that I was in.” A hole later, she made a 15-foot birdie putt. It looked as though nobody would break par for the day until she birdied No. 18. Only five players were under par for the tournament. England’s Jodi Ewart Shadoff (74) was third at 3 under. She had to play 21 holes Saturday after the second round was suspended the night before because of fog. Park had good timing Friday: Her group was on the 18th fairway when the horn sounded, so she was able to finish off her round and rest up for the weekend. Not a morning person, Ewart Shadoff didn’t enjoy waking up at 4:30 a.m. She birdied the 18th hole to earn a spot in the final group with Park and Kim, then took a nap in the four -plus hours between rounds. Ewart Shadoff had a chance to make things interesting on No. 12 with Park on the way to a bogey. But her long birdie putt slid over the hole, and she missed the par putt. Instead of pulling within two strokes of Park, Ewart Shadoff remained four back.

Driscoll said. “But there’s still 18 holes to go.” Still in the mix is 19year -old Jordan Spieth, who had a two-shot lead after opening with a pair of birdies. He also went through a five-hole stretch when he missed five putts inside 8 feet — including a three-putt from 5 feet for double bogey on No. 8. The Texas teen had a 74, though he’s still in the game, just three shots behind. “Making a double on the easiest hole on the course, and then following up with bogey on a par 5 with a lob wedge in my hand, it was very difficult at the turn for me to stay calm and hit good shots to start the back nine,” Spieth said. “Maybe lost a couple of shots with my emotions there, which is upsetting. But like I said, I shot 5 under yesterday. I could shoot 5 under tomorrow and be in great position.” Jason Kokrak had a 70 and was one shot out of the lead, while Charlie Wi had a 29 on the front nine

and shot 65 to finish two shots behind, along with Tom Gillis (66). Spieth was in the group at 209 with Brandt Snedeker, who had a 69. Haas might be better off except for a pair of wedges. One went into the water on the 11th leading to triple bogey, another came up short on the par -5 16th and led to a bogey. The bright side was his nine birdies to offset that triple and three bogeys. “The back nine, I didn’t really know where I was going,” Haas said. “Luckily after that triple, I was able to hit three decent iron shots and then make the putt. Certainly, it could have been a 6-, 7-, 8-under day. But it also could have been a 4-, 5-, 6-over day if I hadn’t putted well. I don’t really know what to make of how I’m playing. Just got to hopefully do more good than bad tomorrow.” Romero was the only player to reach 10 under at any point, with four birdies on the front nine.

blisters on his right foot while coming back to beat No. 26 Alexandr Dolgopolov of Ukraine 6-7 (6), 76 (2), 2-6, 6-1, 6-2. Radwanska, who lost to Williams in last year’s Wimbledon final, was pushed to three sets by 18-year -old American Madison Keys before winning 7-5, 4-6, 6-3. “I’m very happy to be a little bit better,” Radwanska said. “It was really close. Every set was really tight.” The highest-seeded man other than Murray on his half of the field is No. 20 Mikhail Youzhny, who will play the 2012 U.S. Open champion and Wimbledon runner-up after defeating Viktor Troicki 6-3, 6-4, 75. Otherwise, Saturday’s winners on that side of the men’s draw were 130th-

ranked Lukasz Kubot of Poland, who beat No. 25 Benoit Paire 6-1, 6-3, 6-4; 80th-ranked Kenny de Schepper of France, who defeated No. 22 Juan Monaco 6-4, 7-6 (8), 6-4; and 54th-ranked Fernando Verdasco of Spain, a 62, 6-4, 6-4 winner against Ernests Gulbis. Things have generally been less hectic on Djokovic’s portion of the tour nament, but No. 9 Richard Gasquet lost 7-6 (7), 5-7, 7-5, 7-6 (5) to 20year -old Bernard Tomic, whose father has been barred from tournaments after being accused of head-butting Tomic’s hitting partner. No. 23 Andreas Seppi of Italy, meanwhile, won his seventh consecutive five-setter, edging No. 12 Kei Nishikori 3-6, 6-2, 6-7 (4), 6-1, 6-4, and 49th-ranked

Ivan Dodig of Croatia moved on when Igor Sijsling retired while trailing 6-0, 6-1, 1-0, the 13th player to stop mid-match or withdraw before one, equaling a tour nament high. For a moment, it looked as if there might be a 14th when No. 8 Juan Martin del Potro hyperextended his left knee as chased a ball late in his 7-5, 7-6 (3), 6-0 defeat of Grega Zemlja. The 2009 U.S. Open went champion sprawling faceforward into the players’ chairs and racket bags on the sideline. “It was really painful,” del Potro said. “I was a little scared.” Del Potro and Murray each own one Grand Slam title, the only two of the last 33 not claimed by Federer, Nadal or Djokovic.

Arenado, Rockies top Giants 2-1 B4 Sunday, June 30, 2013


DENVER (AP) — Nolan Arenado has made a splash with his defense. On Saturday, the rookie showed he can deliver with his offense, too. Arenado hit a game-ending single with two outs in the ninth inning to lift the Colorado Rockies to a 2-1 victory over the San Francisco Giants, losers of six straight for the first time in three years. Michael Cuddyer singled in the first inning to extend his hitting streak to 26 straight games. Arenado was expected to be with the Rockies in 2012 but was kept in Double-A. He finally got the call-up April 28 and has been entrenched at third base, where his defense has drawn praise from teammates and opponents. “I was telling all these guys in spring training, ‘Hey, watch this guy Nolan in spring training, he can pick it,”’ injured shortstop Troy Tulowitzki said. “You get a glimpse of it in spring training but it doesn’t really click until you see him in game time.” On Saturday, the Rockies needed him to contribute with his bat, and he didn’t disappoint. Todd Helton was walked by reliever Jeremy Affeldt (1-4) with two outs in the ninth for Colorado’s first baserunner since the sec-

ond inning. “Two-out walks will kill you,” Affeldt said. Josh Rutledge ran for Helton, stole second and scored when Arenado singled up the middle on a 2-2 pitch to help the Rockies return to .500 at 41-41. “That was big on Rut, he basically won the game. If it weren’t for that it was just runners on first and second,” Arenado said. “(Affeldt) hung a splitty and I was fortunate I put a good swing on it.” The hit made a winner of Rafael Betancourt (2-3) in his first appearance since May 31. Andres Torres had three hits and Buster Posey had two hits and an RBI for the defending World Series champion Giants, who last lost six in a row from June 26 to July 2, 2010, a seven-game skid. “It’s not a good stretch,” manager Bruce Bochy said. “I’ll leave it at that.” Cuddyer’s streak is the longest in Rockies’ history and in the majors this season. He has reached base safely in a franchise-record 45 straight games. He took the drama out of it early with an RBI single up the middle in the first that gave the Rockies a 1-0 lead. “I had a chance to get out of that in the first inning and didn’t make a good

pitch to Cuddyer,” starter Matt Cain said. “Being as hot as he is, you make a mistake to him, he’s going to get a hit. I could kick myself for that (0-2 curveball).” Colorado starter Jorge De La Rosa made the one-run lead stand until the sixth, when he gave up three hits, including Posey’s two-out, RBI double that tied the game at 1. Posey has now reached safely in 47 straight games against the Rockies. De La Rosa went to the mound at the start of the seventh inning but never faced a batter. Manager Walt Weiss and trainer Keith Dugger came to the mound and checked on the lefty, who has been bothered by a bruise on his left thumb since June 17. After a brief conversation De La Rosa was replaced by Wilton Lopez. “He felt it early and it got progressively worse as the game went on,” manager Walt Weiss said. “We’ll continue to work with it. Hopefully he’ll get that thing behind him at some point.” De La Rosa said the thumb began to hurt when he was throwing in the bullpen before the game. He said he plans on making his next start. “For sure. Yes, I will,” he said. The Rockies had missed

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Devin Mesoraco hit a two-run homer in the 11th inning and the Cincinnati Reds snapped a threegame losing streak with a 6-4 victory over the AL West-leading T exas Rangers on Saturday night. Mesoraco was 0 for 4 with three strikeouts before his 380-foot homer into the left-field seats off Kyle McClellan (0-1), which came right after Todd Frazier was hit by a pitch to start the 11th. Cincinnati had lost six of seven and was coming off consecutive shutout losses before Shin-Soo Choo homered on the first pitch of the game. J.J. Hoover (1-5) got the last two outs in the 10th, even after a walk and a hit. Aroldis Chapman worked the 11th for his 20th save in 23 chances. The Reds had also lost five straight interleague games. Reds starter Mike Leake allowed only three hits and one earned run in seven innings. But Cincinnati had three errors in the third when Texas scored three unearned runs. The Rangers and Rangers both played their 81st game, reaching the midpoint of the regular season. Texas (47-34) has a half-game lead over Oakland while the Reds (4635) are in third place in the NL Central, a seasonhigh 4 1/2 games behind division-leading Pittsburgh. With runners at first and third for Texas in the 10th, Adrian Beltre had an inning-ending foul popout caught by catcher Mesoraco. A.J. Pierzynski drew a leadoff walk in the 11th, but Mitch Moreland then grounded into a double play. After going 1 for 19 his previous six games, Choo hit the first pitch into the visitors bullpen in left-center field. His fifth leadoff homer this season, and 10th of his career, snapped a stretch of 20 consecutive scoreless innings by Texas pitchers that included a 4-0 victory in the series opener Friday night. Choo walked twice and had three hits, including a leadoff single in the ninth before he was caught

stealing to end that inning. Texas rookie right-hander Nick Tepesch struck out seven, but was gone after allowing three consecutive hits to start the fifth. Choo led off with a single and scored on a double by Zack Cozart, who came home on Xaiver Paul’s single off reliever Ross Wolf for a 4-3 Reds lead. The Rangers had only one hit before consecutive doubles by Elvis Andrus and Nelson Cruz to start the sixth for a 4-all tie. Cincinnati made three errors, two on fielder’s choice plays that produced runs, as T exas scored three unearned runs for a 3-2 lead in the third. Two of the errors were by All-Star first baseman Joey Votto, the first when he was unable to pick up the ball after a grounder hit off the heel of his glove. Leonys Martin, the No. 9 hitter, followed with a single to extend his hitting streak to 13 games before

consecutive fielder’s choice plays. Votto made a nifty backhanded stop of Ian Kinsler’s grounder, but he threw wide of home unsuccessful trying to get a runner. The throwing error allowed other runners to advance to second and third before Elvis Andrus hit a RBI grounder to shortstop Cozart. With Kinsler also running, Cozart’s wide throw forced third baseman Jack Hannahan to reach away from the bag for the third Cincinnati error in four batters. Kinsler stopped momentarily before jumping onto the bag and avoiding the tag. Cruz then had a sacrifice fly. The Reds got an unearned run in the top of the third when Derrick Robinson reached on an error by second baseman Jurickson Profar and scored on a bloop single by Brandon Phillips.

a chance to extend their 10 lead in a mistake-filled bottom of the second. With Yorvit Torrealba on first, De La Rosa laid down a bunt. Third baseman Pablo Sandoval’s throw to second went into center field and Torrealba advanced to third. Center fielder Juan Perez’s throw to third got by Sandoval but Torrealba didn’t score even though there was no Giants player covering home.

The oversight cost the Rockies when Torrealba was caught in a rundown on Corey Dickerson’s groundout and DJ LeMahieu hit a fly to right to end the inning. It was the last chance Colorado had against Cain, who turned in his best perfor mance of the season despite getting a no decision. He set down the last 20 batters he faced and showed his first two starts

against Colorado this season were an aberration. In those games he allowed a combined eight runs and 12 hits in 11 1-3 innings. This time, he allowed just one run on three hits and struck out five in eight innings. “I started making pitches and started to get ahead of guys,” Cain said. “I wasn’t getting ahead of guys early.”

Dallas ready for free agency, Colts S arrested starting with Dwight Howard on gun charge Roswell Daily Record

DALLAS (AP) — Dirk Nowitzki is willing to hop on a plane at a moment’s notice. Mark Cuban won’t have “Shark Tank” tapings that interfere with recruiting. The Dallas Mavericks and their star player and owner are ready for a run at Dwight Howard when free agency opens late Sunday night. It’s been two years since the Mavericks dismantled key parts of their only championship team in the name of salary cap space. They are a summer removed from getting spur ned by point guard Deron Williams — while Cuban was on the set of his reality TV show — in their first big pitch with money to spend. If Howard does the same thing, Dallas isn’t planning to wait another summer to give Nowitzki some help so the 35-year -old Ger man can try to remain relevant in the championship picture for his last couple of years as an elite player. “We made it clear to everybody that we’re exploring different options,” Cuban told reporters during practice for Nowitzki’s celebrity baseball game Friday. “It’s just not one approach. Last year it was one-year deals because we wanted to get to this year, not just because of the big names but there were other names that we really liked.

This year it’s not going to be about one-year deals.” A second straight season with a bundle of expiring or one-year contracts cost Dallas a 12-season playoff streak when Nowitzki missed the first two months after knee surgery. At his age, he might need a headliner more than a sidekick, but he definitely needs one or the other. “If Dwight or whoever says no, we’ve got to have some other options,” Nowitzki said. “We don’t want to get too excited for one thing.” First things first, though — and that’s Howard. Cuban said meetings are already set in Los Angeles with “a couple of different players.” Howard’s future with the Los Angeles Lakers appears much murkier than point guard Chris Paul’s potential return to the Los Angeles Clippers. That’s because the Clippers grabbed coach Doc Rivers from Boston in a deal that cost them a future first-round pick. Nowitzki has already reached out to Howard by phone, and knows what can happen when he has a defensive-minded center around the basket. That was Tyson Chandler in 2011, when the Mavericks won the title but chose financial flexibility over bringing back Chandler on a long-term contract under the new labor deal.

Haslem played through injury, needs knee surgery

MIAMI (AP) — Heat forward Udonis Haslem played through much of the second half of Miami’s season with a torn right meniscus, and told The Associated Press that surgery will be required to repair the previously undisclosed injury. Haslem made the revelation Saturday after a promotional appearance where hundreds of Heat fans began lining up to see the Miami native five hours before he arrived. Surgery will occur soon, he said, and Haslem expects to be ready for training camp this fall. “It forces me to be smart and take my time with recovery this summer,” said Haslem, who just completed his 10th NBA season, all with Miami. “Obviously, I don’t heal like I used to so I’ve got to be a lot smarter and this forces me to be smart. My body’s a little weary right now, a lot more weary than it was after last year.” Haslem averaged 3.9 points in 75 regular-season games this past season for the Heat, who captured their second straight NBA title. Haslem and Dwyane Wade are the only players who have been part of all three of Miami’s NBA championship clubs. He only missed three games before the final week of the regular season, sitting out Dec. 10 against Atlanta with flulike symptoms, Dec. 29 against Milwaukee with a neck contusion and Feb. 14 against Oklahoma City after remaining back in Miami with what the team called a bruised right leg. Haslem got hurt two nights earlier, leaving a Feb. 12 home game against Portland after only nine minutes. Haslem played 50 games after that injury, including Miami’s playoff run. “I’m already thinking about recovery,” Haslem said. It’s already been a hectic offseason for Miami, which made the decision to use a team option and keep starting point guard Mario Chalmers and had three other players — Ray Allen, Rashard Lewis and James Jones — all exercise their player-option rights to return next season. Just about everyone in the organization, including Heat President Pat Riley and stars LeBron James and Wade, said they wanted those players to stick around for another year. The next decision that should affect the Heat is the one that will be made by forward Chris “Birdman” Andersen, who becomes a free agent on Monday. Miami wants him back badly, and the Heat were 54-8 in games where Andersen played this season. “I expected everybody that had the opportunity to come back to make the choice to come back,” Haslem said. “Hopefully everything will work out with Bird and we’ll have him back again at it as well. I have no idea what he’ll do, but he fit in great with us. He was what we needed in that role. To me, it’s almost a no-brainer.” Haslem was on the 2006-07 Heat team that came back virtually intact after winning a title, and remembers how many issues plagued that team, starting with several veterans showing up for training camp out of shape. With it now virtually certain that next season’s Heat team will be pretty close to the one that beat San Antonio in seven games for this season’s championship, Haslem is sure that the same issues won’t be a problem again. “Everybody will be in shape,” Haslem said. “Me and DWade learned that the hard way. And LeBron sets the standard so high, man, everybody’s got to keep up with him so nobody wants to come back out of shape.” Haslem signed hundreds of autographs for 90 minutes, then scribbled his name on many more items thrust toward him by people still waiting in line when his appearance Saturday was completed. Many of those on line at a Sports Authority store wore shirts and jerseys with Haslem’s name on the back, which he still finds mindboggling.

Dallas hasn’t won a playoff game since, and is now remaking the roster for the third straight year. “I guess he’s just weighing out his options,” Nowitzki said of his conversation with Howard. “He didn’t really say anything newsworthy. I’m sure he’s got a couple of meetings set up for whenever that might be and hopefully the Mavs are one of those teams and we’ll go from there.” If Howard doesn’t return to the Lakers, Dallas, Houston and Atlanta — his hometown — are considered the most likely destinations. Players can’t sign before July 10. The Mavericks signaled during the draft Thursday night that free agency is their first priority by trading down twice to save cap space. They ended up with the 18th pick in Miami point guard Shane Larkin, the son of Hall of Fame shortstop Barry Larkin, and like him enough that they could keep him. With or without Larkin, the Mavericks have more work to do to clear enough room to give Howard a maximum contract in the range of $20 million for his first season. President of basketball operations Donnie Nelson says the team can get there, and that cap maneuvering was why 2012 first-round pick Jared Cunningham, another point guard, was included

in draft-night dealings. “The financial piece of it is pretty critical at this juncture,” Nelson said after the draft. “We’ve got to go into the offseason with the decks clear and clean.” The Mavericks have just seven players on the roster, Larkin and second-round pick Ricky Ledo of Providence included, and only two starters in Nowitzki and forward Shawn Marion. Larkin and Ledo don’t figure to start, so Dallas presumably is still looking for front-line players at point guard, shooting guard and center after the experiment of Darren Collison, O.J. Mayo and Chris Kaman didn’t work last season. Mayo looks like the only one of those three with a remote chance of returning, and even that is unlikely with him expected to get better offers. “We’re trying to accumulate high-quality, highenergy, high-motor, skilled players to put around Dirk Nowitzki,” Dallas coach Rick Carlisle said. “We’ve got to enhance his ability to do what he does and we’ve got to enhance the opportunity to keep him playing as long as possible because he loves to play and he’s great. So that’s a priority, and it will continue to be one this summer.” With or without Dwight Howard.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Indianapolis Colts safety Joe Lefeged was arrested early Saturday after officers found a semi-automatic pistol in the car he was riding in, police said. Lefeged was a front-seat passenger in a Chevy Camaro that fled a traffic stop for speeding in northeast Washington just after midnight. Of ficers smelled marijuana in the car and found a plastic bottle of vodka and orange juice in the center console and a semi-automatic pistol under the front passenger seat, police documents show. A receipt and purchase paperwork showed Lefeged bought the gun this year for about $900, police said. Lefeged and another passenger were caught when they tried to run from the car in different directions, police said. The driver ran away and was not immediately caught. Lefeged was being held without bond at D.C. jail on a weapon charge. He faces a preliminary court hearing Tuesday. A lawyer listed as representing him did not return a call seeking comment Saturday afternoon. “We are aware of the reports regarding Joe Lefeged in Washington, D.C. At this time, we will have no further comment on the pending matter until we gain more information,” the Colts said in a statement Saturday. Police say officers stopped the car for speeding and because another passenger in the car was standing completely upright in the backseat. After police repeatedly told the driver to put the car in park, the driver sped off, nearly striking officers who had surrounded the white convertible, police said. Police say they recovered the car nearby and arrested Lefeged as he tried to run away. Officers found a .40-caliber semi-automatic handgun “in plain view sticking out from underneath the front passenger seat,” as well as a clear, plastic container of alcohol, according to charging documents. Prosecutors aren’t pursuing charges against the other passenger, a spokesman for the U.S. Attorney’s office said. Authorities say Lefeged had Maryland State Police purchase paperwork for the pistol but was not authorized to carry the weapon in D.C., which has strict gun laws. Lefeged, 25, grew up outside of Washington and was a star high school football player in the region.

Don’t ever leave small children in a hot car! B6 Sunday, June 30, 2013



A year ago almost to the day, my entire immediate family was parked in a Denver parking lot and we noticed a large longhaired dog which had been left in a vehicle. The temperature was pushing 100 degrees and it was absolutely infuriating that someone would consider leaving an animal in a locked car in such heat. Long story short, we found the dog’s owner and the situation was resolved fairly quickly. My guess is that the owner was embarrassed enough that he will not do that again! However, the scorching heat in southeastern New Mexico right now has reminded me once again of the danger to children who could die of hyperthermia (heat

stroke) when they have been left in miserably hot vehicles. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration warns us of the very high risk that hyperthermia presents to children. “Even with the windows rolled down two inches, it only takes 10 minutes for the inside of a vehicle to reach deadly temperatures on a hot summer day,” said Ronald Medford, Acting Deputy Adminis-

trator of NHTSA. “Children should never be left alone in or around a motor vehicle, not even for a quick errand. Any number of things can go critically wrong in the blink of an eye.” Kids are more susceptible to heat-related illness than adults and just a few minutes is extremely dangerous — even fatal — for a small child. So I’m going to say it again. It is never okay to leave a child in a car for any reason! (And as far as I’m concer ned, the same rule applies to animals!) Already, in 2013, 15 children have died because of hyperthermia because they were left in cars! Since 1998, the average number of U.S. child hyperthermia deaths has been 37 per year, a total of 575 children. Two hundred eighty-eight of those, or 52 percent, were occasions where the child was “forgotten,” 29 per-

cent occurred with children playing in unattended vehicles, and 18 percent were situations where the children were intentionally left in the vehicle. The “forgotten” statistic frightens me the most, because in our hustle-up lives, parents and grandparents can easily become so focused on other things that we can forget those little children in our care. Here are a few safety tips to avoid a tragedy in your family: • Never leave a child unattended in a vehicle — not even for a minute. • Do not let your children play in an unattended vehicle. Vehicles are not play areas. • Make a habit of looking in the vehicle — front and back — before locking the door and walking away. Leave a stuffed animal in the car seat and move it to the

front seat when the child is put in the seat. Place your purse or briefcase in the back seat to make yourself look there before you walk away. Do something that forces you to look in the back seat! • If you take your child to daycare, when normally someone else takes them, have that person call you to make sure everything went according to plan. • Ask your childcare provider to call you if your child does not show up for childcare. • Always lock vehicle doors and trunks and keep keys out of children’s reach. If a child is missing, check the vehicle first, including the trunk. • If you see a child alone in a hot vehicle, call 9-1-1. “Beat the Heat. Check the Back Seat”



Reasons for mysterious nightly garden destruction Roswell Daily Record

Q. Strange things are happening in my garden. Some mor nings I find plants are missing. Sometimes a plant is pulled up and left on the ground near the place it was planted. Sometimes a piece of a plant is gone. That piece of the plant may be on the ground, or just absolutely gone. What is happening? What can I do? A. There are several possible culprits involved in your garden mystery. Cutworms cut the plant at the ground level, eating the base of the plant, but often leave the top of the plant lying next to where it was growing. Damping off disease, caused by a fungus may cause the plant to fall over as the stem is damaged by the fungus right at the ground level. Birds may eat young, tender leaves on newly sprouted plants, or they may pull them out of the ground and leave them lying where they fall. Mice and squirrels are other possible garden vandals. To treat the problem, it is important to first determine the cause. Cutworms may be treated with chemicals, or with small collars around the base of the plants. The collars may be cardboard tubes such as those at the center of rolls of paper towels or toilet paper. Some gardeners

Birds may be managed in the garden by scare crows, pieces of flashing aluminum foil hung from stakes in the garden, or by hoops of chicken wire that keep the birds away from the plants. Bird netting may also be suspended over the plants or row cover fabrics may be used to cover the young plants to keep the birds away until the plants are large enough to tolerate the birds or become less palatable to the birds. Mice may fit through the mesh of chicken wire, so something with smaller mesh may be need-

ROSWELL—Healthy Kids Chaves County is encouraging kids in Chaves County to take part in the Fast Track to Health summer incentive program. The program began May 18 and will continue until July 26 (changed from Aug. 2) where there will be a prize drawing for those who participate in the program. Children who will be going into kindergarten up to fifth grade in the upcoming school year can participate. “The program is simple. Take a booklet located at any of our dropoff sites, complete an activity such as participate in a summer reading program, taste a new fruit or vegetable, go

swimming, help parents plant a garden, then get the book completely stamped and turn it in for a prize at the end of the program,” said Paula Camp, Healthy Kids Chaves County coordinator. She added, “For the past few years, Fast T rack to Health has allowed kids to actually get an incentive for just being outside and having fun during the summer.” Molina Healthcare helped sponsor the program this year by providing colorful booklets for kids to pick up at the following locations throughout Chaves County: • Roswell Public Library

• Spring River Park & Zoo • Cahoon Park Swimming Pool • Kenny’s Market in Dexter • Boys & Girls Club of Roswell • BCA Medical Associates • First Tee of the Pecos Valley • Lawrence Bros.

have success with the collars that supposedly prevent the cutwor ms from anchoring themselves to the soil at the base of the plant. Without anchorage, it is claimed that they cannot cut the plants. Damping off fungi may be managed with fungicides, or by good sanitation in the garden. Well-made compost may provide beneficial organisms to the soil that prevent the pathogenic fungi from damaging the plants.

Row cover fabric may also help hid the plants from squirrels and mice if it is sealed at the base so that the animals cannot go under the edges to the plants.

B8 Sunday, June 30, 2013 OBITUARIES


Connie Jean Vickers passed away peacefully June 22, 2013, surrounded by her family at her home after a brave six-year battle with cancer. She was preceded in death recently by her father, Loren Clair Armstrong and mother, Grace Armstrong, and by her husband, Mark Vickers. She is survived by her sons: Benjamin and Michael Vickers; daughter, Kristin Hebert; Brandon son-in-law, Hebert, and precious granddaughter Lily Claire Hebert, with another grandbaby

Remy Hebert on the way; her sister, Kathryn Sutherlen, and nieces: Rachel Bombardier and Jennifer Vega, and their families. Connie Jean Vickers (née Armstrong) was born in Beatrice, Nebraska on Feb. 4, 1948. She attended school in Beatrice and Albuquerque before attending the University of New Mexico, where she earned a Bachelor of Education degree in 1970. She began her teaching career in Clovis at Bella Vista Elementary and taught in Albuquerque at Bandelier Elementary [which she also attended as a girl]. Her favorite teaching position was at Monterrey Elementary School in Roswell, where she taught first grade from 1996 to 2010. She was diagnosed with cancer in 2007, and continued teaching while enduring harsh chemotherapy treatments. Connie wished to thank the staff of Kymera Cancer Center, especially Dr. Edgard Badine and the chemotherapy lab nurses:

DEATH VALLEY, Calif. (AP) — Scorching heat blistered the Southwest on Saturday, where highs between 115 and 120 degrees were expected for parts of Arizona, Nevada and California through the weekend. Forecasters said temperatures in sunbaked Las Vegas could match the record of 117 degrees Saturday. Phoenix also was expected to hit that mark, matching the record for June 29 set in 1994. And large swaths of California sweltered under extreme heat warnings, which are expected to last into Tuesday night — and maybe even longer. Dan Kail was vacationing in Las Vegas when he heard that the temperature at California's Death Valley could approach 130 degrees this weekend. He didn't hesitate to make a trip to the desert location that is typically the hottest place on the planet. "Coming to Death Valley in the summertime has always been on the top of my bucket list," the 67year -old Pittsburgh man said. "When I found out it might set a record I rented a car and drove straight over. If it goes above 130 I will have something to brag about." The forecast called for Death Valley to reach 128 degrees Saturday as part of a heat wave that has

caused large parts of the wester n U.S. to suf fer. Death Valley's record high of 134 degrees, set a century ago, stands as the highest temperature ever recorded on Earth. A couple hours south in Baker, the temperature was expected to peak at 120 degrees in the road tripper's oasis in the Mojave Desert on Interstate 15. The strip of gas stations and restaurants between Los Angeles and Las Vegas is known by travelers for the giant thermometer that often notes temperatures in the triple digits. At the Mad Greek restaurant there, a waitress called out orders for "Chocolate shake! Strawberry shake!" while the temperature hovered at 112 degrees during the lunch rush. Downtown Los Angeles was expected to hit 91 degrees, 7 degrees shy of its record. To make matters worse in Califor nia, National Weather Service meteorologists John Dumas said cooling ocean breezes haven't been traveling far enough inland overnight to fan Southern California's overheated valleys and deserts. Burbank set a record overnight low with temperatures dipping to 74 degrees overnight, much warmer than the previous record of 68 degrees for

Services are pending at Ballard Funeral Home and Crematory for George Samuel Morley, 74, who passed away Friday, June 28, 2013, in Roswell. A further announcement will be made once arrangements have been finalized.

Phoenix, Las Vegas bake Saturday's early hours.

In Northern California, temperatures Saturday were expected to reach the 80s in San Francisco, upper 90s in San Jose and into the triple digits inland, about 20 degrees above typical highs in the Bay area.

Farther north, triple-digit temps were expected in Sacramento on Saturday and Sunday.

Health officials warned people to be extremely careful when venturing outdoors. The risks include not only dehydration and heat stroke but burns from the concrete and asphalt. Dogs can suffer burns and blisters on their paws by walking on hot pavement.

Cooling stations were set up to shelter the homeless and elderly people who can't afford to run their air conditioners. In Phoenix, Joe Arpaio, the famously hard-nosed sherif f who runs a tent jail, planned to distribute ice cream and cold towels to inmates this weekend.

Officials said personnel were added to the Border Patrol's search-and-rescue unit because of the danger to people trying to slip across the Mexican border. At least seven people have been found dead in the last week in Arizona after falling victim to the brutal desert heat.

Wanted: New presidents at Ohio St, Penn St, Mich.

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Wanted: chief executive to oversee a multibillion-dollar enterprise that employs thousands, educates tens of thousands, pushes cuttingedge research and medical care, and fields national-caliber sports teams that are often a headline or two away from controversy. Must be skilled at fundraising and political tightrope walking and have an appreciation for funny-looking mascots. Working 24/7 is expected; ability to walk on water is a plus. "The joke is frequently told in these searches that you're looking for God on a good day," said Tom Poole, vice president of administration at Penn State and executive secretary of the university's search for a new president. At Penn State, Rodney Erickson will leave in a year, triggering a search for a successor who, on top of the regular responsibilities of running such a big university, must also deal with the ongoing aftermath of the sex abuse scandal involving former assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky. Erickson took over in 2011 after former university President Graham Spanier was forced out. In Ann Arbor, University of Michigan President Mary Sue Coleman announced in April that she would step down in July 2014. Ohio State President Gordon Gee retires Monday after his second stint as OSU president for a total of 15 years in Columbus. He announced his retirement last month just days after The Associated Press first reported on remarks he'd made months earlier

jabbing Roman Catholics and Notre Dame and demeaning the academic integrity of Southeastern Conference schools. The Ohio State provost has been tapped as interim president. Details of a search for Gee's replacement haven't been announced. Any of the responsibilities of a modern research university president would be enough for one person — whether it's building strong academic programs for undergraduates or running a university hospital system. The combined duties can seem staggering. Penn State, with a $4.3 billion annual budget, has a total of about 85,000 students, including undergrad, graduate and professionals, spread over 24 campuses, including its online school, World Campus. The University of Michigan Health System alone has more than 26,000 faculty and staff, 120 clinics and offices throughout Michigan and northern Ohio, and $490 million in research funding. Ohio State, with a $5.2 billion budget and more than 63,000 students, has 168 undergraduate majors, 93 doctoral programs and seven professional programs, including the medical, law and pharmacy schools. It also has nearly 500,000 alumni worldwide, many of them with strong opinions. When considering candidates, it helps to brainstorm about the skills a new leader should bring to the job, even if the results seem far-fetched at times, said Molly Corbett Broad, president of the American Council on Education.

Whisked out of a luxury Hong Kong hotel, vanishing into the mysterious wing of a Moscow airport, Edward Snowden’s continent-jumping, hide-and-seek game seems like the stuff of a pulp thriller — a desperate man’s drama played out before a worldwide audience trying to decide if he’s a hero or a villain. But the search for the former National Security Agency contractor who spilled government secrets has become something of a distracting sideshow, some say, overshadowing at least for now the important debate over the government’s power to seize the phone and Internet records of millions of Americans to help wage the war on terrorism. “You have to be humble on Day 1 to say, ‘This isn’t about me. This is about the information.’... I don’t think he really anticipated the importance of making sure the focus initially was off him,” says Mike Paul, president of MGP & Associates PR, a crisis management firm in New York. “Not only has he weakened his case, some would go as far as to say he’s gone from hero to zero.” Snowden, he says, can get back on track by “utilizing whatever information he has like big bombs in a campaign,” so the focus returns to the question of spying and not his life on the run. Snowden’s disclosures about U.S. surveillance to Britain’s Guardian newspaper and The Washington Post have ignited a major controversy in Washington that shows no signs of fading. A petition asking President Barack Obama to pardon Snowden — dubbing him a “national hero” — has collected more than 123,000 signatures. Senate Intelligence Committee Chairwoman Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., meanwhile, has called Snowden’s disclosure of top-secret information “an act of treason.” And Republican House Speaker John Boehner is among those who’ve called Snowden a “traitor.” The president, himself, has dismissed the 30-year-old Snowden as a “hacker” and vowed the U.S. won’t be scrambling military jets to snatch the former contractor and return him to the U.S., where he faces espionage charges. Some say Snowden is losing ground in the battle for public opinion by cloaking his travels in secrecy, creating more interest in his efforts to elude U.S. authorities than his allegations against the government. By disappearing in Russia, he loses “access to rehabilitate himself in the public’s mind,” says William Weaver, a professor at the University of Texas at El Paso who has written about government secrecy. “You have to keep selling yourself, if you will, and do it in a smart way so people don’t get tired of you. ... His only hope was to hit a grand slam home run with the public and make it stick. For every hour that he’s not doing something like that, he’s in trouble.” Others say Snowden’s personality is irrelevant and doesn’t change his major argument — that the U.S. intelligence community has lied about the scope of its surveillance of Americans. Gene Healy, a vice president of the libertarian Cato Institute, recently wrote an essay denouncing pundits who’ve labeled Snowden a “grandiose narcissist” and a “total slacker.” He maintains that the former contractor’s revelations are all that matters. “The content of the message is far more important than the character of the messenger,” he wrote in the piece published in the Washington Examiner. Healy also said “the most disturbing” part of Snowden’s disclosures was the massive amounts of data collected on citizens. “The potential abuse of that information represents a grave threat to American liberty and privacy regardless of Snowden’s character and motivations,” he wrote. David Colapinto, general counsel at the National Whistleblowers Center, says it’s not surprising Snowden has become

an “easy target”’ facing harsh criticism from those at the highest levels of government — people “who have a bigger megaphone than he does.” “The name-calling and whatever may happen in the future — we don’t know what he’s going to do,” he adds. “We don’t know what the government is going to do. ... It’s pretty hard to pull out a crystal ball.” So far, America seems to be divided, according to polls taken in the first days after Snowden’s leak of top-secret documents. Many people initially applauded the former contractor for exposing what they saw as government spying on ordinary Americans. Since then, though, government officials have responded with explanations of the program and congressional testimony attesting to the value of surveillance in thwarting deadly terrorist attacks. In one poll, a June 12-16 national survey by the Pew Research Center and USA Today, 49 percent of those surveyed said the release of classified information about the NSA program serves the public interest, while 44 percent found it harmful. For those under 30, the gap was dramatically larger — that group said it’s good for the public by a 60-34 percent margin, according to the survey. Still, more than half of those polled — 54 percent — also said the government should pursue a criminal case against someone who leaked classified information about the program. A second survey taken in that same five-day period found a similar split. The Washington Post-ABC news poll found that 43 percent support and 48 percent oppose criminally charging Snowden. But the survey also reported that 58 percent of Americans support the NSA’s sweeping surveillance program. Snowden has acknowledged taking highly classified documents about U.S. surveillance and sharing the information with the two papers, the Guardian and The Washington Post. He also told the South China Morning Post that the NSA hacked Chinese cellphone companies to seek text message data. Snowden is expected to seek asylum in Ecuador. That decision could take months. He has been supported by WikiLeaks, the anti-secrecy group whose founder, Julian Assange, has been given asylum in the Ecuadorean Embassy in London. At this point, Snowden’s main job is to stay out of prison and he has both a “powerful narrative” and major disadvantages, says Eric Dezenhall, head of a crisis management firm in Washington, D.C. “The biggest thing on the asset side is the concern people have about government surveillance — it’s very legitimate,” Dezenhall says. “The weaknesses are having betrayed secrets he was entrusted with and the fact he ended up in these hostile countries. .... Public opinion doesn’t move on nuance. (People think) You’re a whistle-blower who’s in Russia or China. So you think they have an answer to this problem? It’s not very intelligent.” Gerald R. Shuster, a professor of political communication at the University of Pittsburgh, says if Snowden had remained in the U.S. and “stood his ground, he would have remained more heroic” and attorneys would have lined up to represent him. But if he’s brought back to face charges and “he’s shown in handcuffs, the aura of idealism is over,” Shuster says. “He’s more and more perceived as a criminal.” Colapinto, the lawyer for the whistleblower group, says it’s too soon to know how Snowden’s plight will play out. “This is like a moving river,” he says. “We’re maybe midstream. We don’t know where this will end up. I think history will judge him as things develop. But we just don’t know the end of the story.”

VISTAS Roswell Daily Record








Despite an annual, world-renown veneration of infamous visitors from outer space, there is at least one summer event in Roswell that helps ensure a sense of traditional America in July. The Roswell Sertoma Club Michael Satterfield Memorial Fireworks Extravaganza is set to take place July 4 at Cielo Grande. A collaboration between the city of Roswell, the Roswell Fire Department, the Roswell Police Department, the Roswell Streets Departments, Roswell Parks and Recreation and the Roswell Sertoma Club, the event is free and open to the public. The extravaganza promises an “aerial display of unprecedented proportions” according to a Roswell Parks and Recreation Department press release; a true and traditional Independence Day show of epic proportions. But none of this would be possible — or even relevant — without the veterans who continually ensure that our flag is still there. With a focus on honoring veterans both living and no longer with us, the list of events on July 4 will kick off with a veterans’ barbecue dinner from 4-7 p.m. at the Elks Lodge no. 969, at 1720 N. Montana Ave. Sponsored by the Elks, the barbecue is free for all veterans and their loved ones. Veterans are encouraged to stick around afterwards for the live entertainment and fireworks show. Members of the Chaves County Community Band and Youth Band will perform patriotic music at Cielo Grande from 5:30-6:15 p.m. CW Ayon will perform from 6:30-7:30 p.m. and headliner Amy LaVere will treat the crowd from 8-9:15 p.m. The event will also include food vendors and inflatable games. Set off electronically and choreographed to patriotic music, the fireworks show comes courtesy of the Roswell Sertoma Club, which funded a generous dollar amount worth of bright, colorful, sizzling miniexplosives for the event. Every year the fireworks show outdoes itself, and 2013 is no different. “This will be the biggest show we’ve ever put on,” said Roswell Sertoma secretary Gil Goodman. Safety is key for an event that is expected to attract about 25,000 attendees. Fireworks show organizers have devised an intricate but extremely efficient evacuation plan. In case of emergency, all 25,000 people will be able to get out of the area quickly. It’s also the safest way to get people out of Cielo Grande after the show is done. The portion of College Boulevard extending from Sycamore Avenue to Montana Avenue will be closed during the event. Also, for safety reasons, attendees are warned against bringing their own fireworks and to leave their pets home. They are encouraged to bring lawn chairs and/or blankets to sit and watch the show. “There’s a lot that goes into (the fireworks show),” said Recreation Superintendent Laurie Jerge. “It really is a labor of love. There’s nothing that we’d rather do or anywhere we’d rather be on July 4. It’s our gift back to the community.” Incidentally, giving back to the community is the main thrust of the Roswell Sertoma Club, which is having a membership drive. Fifty-three members strong, the Roswell Sertoma is actively seeking new members to help push that number closer to 75. Prospective Sertoma members “have to have a desire to serve the community,” Goodman said. An acronym for Service to Mankind, Sertoma Inc. has active clubs throughout the U.S. and Canada. Sertoma proudly accentuates its century-long commitment to community service in its promotional material. One of Sertoma’s main charity goals is speech and hearing; it helps those with hearing loss through the provision of hearing aids. A program called SAFEEars! aims to raise awareness about noiseinduced hearing loss. At a local level, Roswell Sertoma has given about $2 million to the community. Sertoma has supported the Southeast New Mexico Veteran’s Transportation Network, a training program for local police, the city Easter egg hunt, the New Mexico Youth ChalleNGe and various local schools and sporting events. Devoted to helping local youth, Roswell Sertoma awards about two dozen scholarships to Chaves County students every semester. These funds can be used to attend any institute of higher learning in the U.S.. Most recently, Sertoma helped install four electronic scoreboards at the new Charlie McVay softball complex. They have also helped install playground equipment at Cielo Grande, made possible through matching funds from the state. Roswell Sertoma Club Bingo, located at 303 N. Virginia Ave., is Sertoma’s major fundraiser, Goodman said. There is also a cash drawing done in collaboration with Altrusa. Although it is Altrusa’s major fundraiser, it helps Sertoma, too. Goodman invited anyone who’s interested in joining Sertoma to attend one of its weekly lunch meetings, which take place Fridays at noon at the Elks Lodge.

Impending move could be upsetting to kids C2 Sunday, June 30, 2013

Q: Due to a job transfer, we’re moving to a different region of the country. How can we help our kids adjust to a cross-country move? Jim: First, realize that this can be a tough transition for kids. According to Parents Magazine, “Toddlers will mourn the loss of their room and the house they’ve always lived in. School-age children will mourn the loss of their friends and their school. Teenagers, along with mourning all of the above, are likely to feel anger at their parents for a major life change that is beyond their control.” With all of this mourning going on, you should allow your kids time to grieve. So be patient with them. Life will eventually feel normal for them again, but it won’t happen overnight. In her book “After the Boxes Are Unpacked,” author Susan Miller suggests several ways of helping your kids make the tran-




sition as smoothly as possible. — Don’t play down the importance of the changes they’re going through. Telling them that “everything will work out” isn’t necessarily the best approach. — Encourage them to express their fears and concer ns. If they’re too young to verbalize their thoughts, help them. If you have teenagers, ask them to express their feelings. — Let them do the talking and make up your mind to be a good listener. — Whatever you do, don’t deny your children’s feelings. That will only increase their sense of isola-

tion and frustration. — Don’t feel that you need to shoulder all the blame or justify the move to your kids. It’s not up to you to solve all their problems. — Remember that it’s normal for some children to experience a temporary regression in behavior after a move. If you have schoolaged kids, you may even see a drop in their grades. If that’s the case, don’t panic. Give them the time and space they need in order to adjust to the new situation. Q: My daughter is really starting to get into the “emo” style of clothing. We have told her we won’t allow her to dress in an emo fashion, but we really don’t understand what it means to be emo. Can you tell us a little about what this means and if it is destructive? Bob Waliszsewski, director of Plugged In: This is a dif ficult question to answer because the ter m “emo” means dif ferent things to different people. Accord-

Roswell Daily Record

ing to the Merriam-Webster dictionary, it is “a style of rock music influenced by punk rock and featuring introspective and emotionally fraught lyrics.” At our media review website,, our staf f has reviewed some albums that would be considered emo in style and have decent lyrics and melodies, while other albums in the genre are filled with dark, unhealthy themes. So there is no one-sizefits-all answer here. The same goes for emo fashion. Some emo kids adopt the look to fit into a current trend, while others do so to indicate that they belong to a group that has a particular mindset and attitude to convey. In either case, it’s necessary to consider what being emo means in your community. That’s something we can’t answer for you, but it’s a worthwhile question for you and your daughter to consider. In her mind, what does she

hope to communicate to those around her by embracing this style? Sit down with her and simply ask her what being “emo” means to her. Does she merely want to dress like the other kids in her peer group? Or is she hoping to convey some sort of inner angst or rebellion? Her answers to those questions will be instructive as you consider how to proceed.

CARLSBAD—After 40 years away, former National Park Service park guide Tom Lorig traveled back to New Mexico this week to return a historic sign to Carlsbad Caverns National Park. The painted wood sign, which marked wellknown Mirror Lake in the Big Room of Carlsbad Cavern, will be added to the park’s museum collection. It is the first of its design to be added to the park’s collection. Lorig, who now lives in Bothell, Washington, toured the cave recently and reminisced about his time as a park guide from 1968 to 1973. Lorig obtained the sign when new lighted signs were installed in 1973. He and other employees were given permission to take old signs. “The Mirror Lake sign was the most coveted one,” Lorig said, “because of the mirror-image text that read right-side up when reflected on the surface of the pool.” At the end of his recent cavern tour, Lorig said, “I’m glad the sign is back at Carlsbad Caverns. This is where it belongs.” After leaving Carlsbad Caverns, Lorig worked as a ranger at Yosemite and Saguaro national parks before becoming a registered nurse and moving to Washington.

The Mirror Lake sign stayed with him and was displayed on his mantel in Washington. A few years ago, Lorig began to think about ensuring the sign’s preservation and first had the idea of returning it to Carlsbad Caverns. The opportunity to do so arose this year while on a road trip to the Southwest. The sign traveled back to Carlsbad Caverns from Washington in the backseat of Lorig’s truck. Carlsbad Caverns National Park occasionally receives donations from former employees and visitors, including old photographs, posters, and other items featuring the park. Most recently, George Eugene Hill, of Williams, Arizona, donated a box of 35 mm slides from his time as a park guide at Carlsbad Caverns in the summers from 1961 to 1963. Donations such as these help Carlsbad Caverns and other parks piece together history that may have been lost or obscured. Safely preserved in the park’s museum collection, these items are important pieces of the story of Carlsbad Caverns National Park. For more information about park museum collections and donations, call 575-785-6717.

DEAR ABBY: My problem is my mother-inlaw and her abundant use of perfume. The last time she visited, it was so bad we had to open our windows to air out the rooms. (This was in January in Minnesota.) My husband addressed the problem with her when I was pregnant, but now that the baby is here she’s back to her old habits. We are all sensitive to perfumes and get headaches when exposed to it. When she visits, we can’t get away from the smell. I don’t wear perfume, but was always told that “perfume

is to be discovered, never announced.” However, when I say that around her, she dismisses it. What’s the proper etiquette in addressing the per fume cloud that surrounds her? THE NOSE KNOWS

DEAR NOSE: I receive complaints about perfumes almost daily. Perfume “in abundance” can cause serious allergic reactions in people who are sensitive to it. And when they are exposed to it in enclosed places (elevators, airplanes, houses with storm windows, gymnasiums, etc.), it can cause real problems. Your mother-in-law should be reminded again that her perfume is causing headaches and asked to please not use it around you. Depending upon how old she is and her sense of smell, she may not realize she is using as much as she is. Women’s per fumes and men’s after-shave lotions and colognes can also cause problems at the gym. When people who are exercising begin to

sweat, the smell can become overpowering and a nuisance to others. Scents that were applied the day before can turn rancid, so a shower before working out would be considerate if this could be you. #####

DEAR ABBY: I have a son, “Billy,” who will be 9 soon. He was conceived through rape by a man who was physically, emotionally and sexually abusive, as well as controlling and manipulative. He threatened to kill me and Billy, but I eventually got free. I have a criminal no-contact order on him, and he has no legal rights to Billy. I have raised my son without any knowledge of his father. I feel it would be cruel to tell him how he came into the world. My mother disagrees. She thinks it will backfire if and when Billy finds out. She points out that Billy has two half-sisters he doesn’t know about. I don’t like to keep that from him. I need to protect my son, no matter what. But am I doing

the right thing? I sometimes question what is in my son’s best interest and that of our relationship. Please give me some advice. LIVING IN THE PRESENT

Family Circus

DEAR LIVING IN THE PRESENT: I’m surprised your son has not already asked about his father, because surely he must have questions. When Billy asks, he should be told some of the truth in an age-appropriate way. He does not need to know about the rape, but he should know that his father was violent, so for your safety and his, the courts decided Billy’s father should not be in contact with the two of you. Billy should also be told that until he is an adult it will have to remain that way. When he’s older, he can be told that there are half-siblings. (I agree with your mother on that.) While you can’t protect your son forever, you can keep him safe until he’s old enough to process the information.

Rinse completely and lay it out to dry. Make sure it is completely dry before storing. Be careful where you hang your flag. You do not want your flag blowing into anything that will harm it. Inspect your flag often. Check for damage, and normal wear and tear. Remember that if a flag is too worn or damaged, it should no longer be flown, and should be retired properly. Check with veteran organizations or the American Legion to find out more. Heloise #####

Historic theatre initiative kicks off in NM C4 Sunday, June 30, 2013


CLAYTON—New Mexico Economic Development Secretary Jon Barela has kicked off the MainStreet Historic Theater Initiative, an investment in rural downtown theaters to help upgrade movie equipment and make infrastructure improvements. As part of this initiative, the nearly 100-year -old Luna Theatre in Clayton was transformed into an advanced digital cinema while preserving and restoring historic architectural details. With the movie industry’s switch this year from film to digital media, many of these theaters could not afford the conversion

and would sit vacant without assistance from the state. The Historic Theater Initiative is the only MainStreet program of its kind in the nation. “As I toured main streets throughout the state, I discovered that many of our historic theaters — which are local treasures — were in serious need of repair,” Barela said. “We wanted to do something not only to bring these theaters back to life but to help revitalize traditional areas of commerce as destinations for families to shop, dine and see a movie.” At Barela’s request the Eco-

nomic Development Department staff developed a plan to support and partner with municipalities to upgrade, reopen the doors and project movies at historic theaters in addition to hosting other perfor mances and community events. “We are grateful for the efforts by the Economic Development Department to keep these theaters from going dark by assisting the conversion to digital media,” said Shirley Carter, president of the Clayton MainStreet. “In doing so, it assists in maintaining the economic vitality of the district that spills over to the other busi-

nesses in downtown.” In addition to the $100,000 allocation for the digital equipment and sound surround system, the state provided additional capital outlay funding for essential infrastructure improvements. In total, the state provided $630,000 to the Luna Theater project. The Historic Luna Theater is a property of the town of Clayton and managed by Clayton MainStreet. It operates today as one of New Mexico’s oldest movie houses and is the state’s best preserved theater from the silent movie era. Merchant and rancher Morris

Herzstein built the theater and adjacent business block in 1916 after a disastrous fire wiped out his headquarters mercantile store. Built in a unique fusion of classical and Mission style architectural elements, the Luna’s façades survive intact. The Economic Development Department has plans to expand the Historic Theater Initiative to other rural, historic theaters across the state. For information on the program or for theater eligibility, contact Rich Williams, director of the New Mexico MainStreet program, at 505-827-0168 or

RIM posts larger-than-expected loss Roswell Fresenius

TORONTO (AP) — Shares of BlackBerry maker Research In Motion plunged nearly 30 percent Friday after the company posted a loss and warned of future losses despite releasing its make-or-break new smartphones this year. RIM also announced that it will stop developing new versions of its slow-selling tablet computer called the Playbook. Analysts were looking for insight into how phones running RIM’s new Blackberry 10 operating system are selling. It wasn’t good. RIM said it sold 6.8 million phones overall versus 7.8 million last year. That includes older models. It wasn’t until well into a conference call with analysts that RIM announced that 2.7 million of the devices sold in the quarter were Blackberry 10 models. RIM’s Blackberry 10 operating system is critical to the company’s comeback. New phones running the BlackBerry 10 software began selling around the world this year. The BlackBerry Z10, a touchscreen model and the Q10, which sports a keyboard, have received positive reviews, but there was a delay in getting them to market in the U.S. The first quarter, however, included a substantial period of sales of the Z10 phone in the U.S. It didn’t include sales numbers for the Q10 in the U.S. The Q10 just went on sale in the U.S. earlier this month. Sales results and RIM’s projections, however, signal that the new BlackBerry 10 phones are not selling well. The company said it anticipates it will generate an operating loss in the second quarter, too. Mike Walkley, an analyst with Canaccord Genuity, said it’s clear the new operating system has not tur ned the company around. “With Z10, Q10, and Q5 all shipping in the August quarter and BlackBerry still guiding to a loss we believe that is strong evidence BB10 has not turned around BlackBerry in an extremely competitive smartphone market,” Walkley said. Chief Executive Thorsten Heins said on a conference call with analysts that the

In this Jan. 30 file photo, Thorsten Heins, CEO of Research in Motion, introduces the BlackBerry Z10, in New York.

“transition takes time” and noted things are better compared to last year when “we were told the company was finished.” Shares of Research in Motion Ltd. dropped $4.02, or 28 percent, to close at $10.46 Friday. The BlackBerry, introduced in 1999, was once the dominant smartphone for on-the-go business people. But it lost its cachet not long after Apple released the first iPhone in 2007. Apple’s device reset expectations for what a smartphone can do. RIM promised to catch up while developing new a software system called BlackBerry 10, which uses technology it got through its 2010 purchase of QNX Software Systems. But the company took more than two years to unveil new phones that were redesigned for the multimedia, Inter net browsing and apps experience that customers now demand. During that time, RIM cut more than 5,000 jobs and saw shareholder wealth of more than $70 billion vanish. The Canadian company said it lost $84 million, or 16 cents a share, in the three months ended June 1 on revenue of $3.1 billion. It lost $518 million, or 99 cents per share, on revenue of $2.8 billion a year ago.

Analysts expected RIM to ear n 5 cents a share on revenue of $3.37 billion. The number of BlackBerry users in the world also fell by four million to 72 million. RIM also said it anticipates it will generate an operating loss in the second quarter. Heins noted the highly competitive smartphone market makes it difficult to estimate revenue and levels of profitability. Heins also announced on the call that he has halted further development of RIM’s failed tablet offering, the Playbook. The Playbook has not sold well. “Our teams have spent a great deal of time and energy looking at solutions that could move the BlackBerry 10 experience to Playbook, but unfortunately I am not satisfied with the level of per for mance and user experience and I made the difficult decision to stop these efforts and focus on our core hardware portfolio,” Heins said. Heins said they’ll continue to support the PlayBook on the existing software platforms and configurations. Asked if RIM will continue to make the Playbook, a RIM spokeswoman said the company is evaluating its hardware strategy. Colin Gillis, an analyst at BGC Partners, said it’s

tough for RIM because it’s hard to make money on handsets now. “There are a lot of people that haven’t been able to make it happen. For all the talk about Apple and Samsung, there are companies like Nokia and HTC,” Gillis said. Gillis said things look bleaker for the company and it’s going to continue to be a struggle. Jefferies & Co. analyst Peter Misek said the high end global smartphone market is saturated and brutally competitive. “Everybody is coming to this reality. You talk to HTC, Samsung and even Apple, the high end is saturated. That’s a fact,” Misek said. “Anybody in the high end who wants a smartphone in the world has one, so you have to knock somebody away from another platform. That is a brutal, brutal market.” RIM has unveiled a lower -cost BlackBerry aimed at consumers in emerging markets, but has not said if the device will be available in North America. Misek was expecting the company to sell 4 million BlackBerry 10 phones. He said the sale of 2.7 million new BlackBerry 10 phones was the most disappointing news Friday.

$75,000 in LEDA funds for job creation

LAS VEGAS — Secretary Jon Barela announced $75,000 in Local Economic Development Act funds for Martinez & Son’s Processing at their ribbon cutting ceremony today in Las Vegas. The LEDA funds, which are appropriated for infrastructure projects, will help with the purchase of refrigeration for the meat processing plant that will serve Northern New Mexico ranchers. This will help with the creation of 12 direct jobs and more than 50 indirect jobs. “Martinez & Sons is a small business success story in that it represents a family who has worked tirelessly to plan, develop and build an enterprise that will employ local citizens and provides a much needed service,” said Barela. “Martinez & Sons are the kind of small business that leads the way for job growth in the state and we are proud to support this rural New Mexico business.” In 2012, Martinez & Sons received $70,000 in LEDA funding to go toward a water recycling system and construction for cooler and freezer space and $50,000 in Job Training Incentive Program funds for the hiring and training of eight employees. Martinez & Sons Processing, LLC will be the first commercial meat processing business in Las Vegas, serving local ranchers and grass-fed animal producers for the northeastern part of New Mexico. Without this business located in San Miguel County, Northern New Mexico beef producers would have to travel an average of 520 miles for cattle harvesting services. The company plans to offer one-of-kind custom cuts to satisfy all customer processing needs, utilizing upto-date equipment and technology to ensure a quality product for the customers. Local ranchers and organic producers will have the opportunity to have their meat processed while saving on commuting expenses.
