Budget cuts could have hidden costs WASHINGTON (AP) — Across-the-board budget cuts are leaving federal agencies with fewer firefighters and less equipment to battle the nation’s wildfires this summer. Yet the upfront savings could mask hidden costs because those agencies will ultimately spend whatever they must in what is already a deadly fire season, say government officials and others. The U.S. Forest Service’s $2 billion firefighting budget, the government’s main-


stay against wildfires, has been whittled by 5 percent. Agency officials said that has meant 500 fewer firefighters and 50 fewer fire engines than last year. The Interior Department’s $832 million firefighting program was pared by $37.5 million, savings it is achieving by filling 100 fewer seasonal firefighting positions and eliminating other jobs as well, officials said. Cuts in most government programs, called a sequester, were triggered by

a deficit-reduction standoff between President Barack Obama and congressional Republicans. They come at the start of a fire season fueled by a prolonged Western drought and that officials expect to resemble last year’s, when 68,000 fires burned a near-record 9.3 million acres. “The fire seasons, they’re hotter, they’re drier and they’re longer” than in the past, Thomas Tidwell, chief of the Forest Service, told the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee

last month. Last weekend, a wildfire killed 19 members of an elite firefighting crew outside Yar nell, Ariz. As of Thursday, more than 22,000 wildfires have burned more than 1.7 million acres across the country, according to the National Interagency Coordination Center in Boise, Idaho, which helps oversee federal firefighting efforts. The Forest Service and Interior Department don’t stop fighting fires when they drain their firefighting

Instead, they draw money from other parts of their budgets, which could include programs for removing dried brush and dead trees from dry areas to make future fires less likely and less intense. “When we have emergencies burning, the U.S. government will continue to spend money on firefighting, even if they don’t have the money,” said Christopher Topik, director of the

Parks hope for visitors

See CUTS, Page A3

ALBUQUERQUE (AP) — During the last big holiday weekend, state parks around New Mexico saw their revenues and the number of visitors drop by more than 40 percent. Park officials place the blame squarely on the relentless drought, the seemingly endless threat of wildfire and the repetitious stories about the state’s rivers and reservoirs going dry. Now, at the start of the Fourth of July holiday weekend, New Mexico is no closer to escaping the drought and wildfires continue to burn. State Parks Director Tommy Mutz says there’s not much he can do to control Mother Nature, but he and his staff are on a mission to reverse the downward trend in visitation at the state’s 35 parks. Their first challenge: Getting the word out that not all of New Mexico has dried up. “Everywhere we go, the story is doom and gloom as far as the environment and economics,” Mutz said. “But we’re still the best recreational value close to home. And you can still access the water. Every-

Conference to shed Art show kicks off UFO Fest light on aliens, UFOs AMY VOGELSANG RECORD STAFF WRITER

In order to spread knowledge about the phenomenon of aliens and UFO history, Stardust Conferences will be hosting its grand opening July 5-7 at Roswell Antique Mall, 208 N. Main St., complete with speakers and presentations. After having her own UFO experiences, Paula Schurle from Califor nia decided to buy a place in Roswell to host UFO-related conferences. “Before I began seeing them I really didn’t have an interest. … I really didn’t care,” Schurle admitted. “But now it’s really exciting

to me.” Her first sighting was May 20, 2008, a day she remembers without hesitation. But since then she has had multiple other sightings. “I have a really strong laser light,” Schurle said. “And sometimes when I shine the laser, the UFO would fly close to me so I could see the shape.” There will be three guest speakers helping Schurle kick off Stardust Conferences. U.S. Ar my UFO crash retrieval expert Clifford Stone will be present all three days from 11:30 a.m. until 1 p.m. to discuss

Obama orders US to review aid to Egypt

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama urged Egypt’s military Wednesday to hand back control to a democratic, civilian government without delay, but stopped short of calling the ouster of President Mohammed Morsi a coup. In a carefully worded statement, Obama said he was “deeply concerned” by


the military’s move to topple Morsi’s government and suspend Egypt’s constitution. He said he was ordering the U.S. government to assess what the military’s actions meant for U.S. foreign aid to Egypt. Under U.S. law, the government must suspend foreign aid to any nation whose elected leader is ousted in a coup d’etat. The

U.S. provides $1.5 billion a year to Egypt in military and economic assistance that is considered a critical U.S. national security priority.

“I now call on the Egyptian military to move quickly and responsibly to return full authority back to a democratically elected civilian government as soon as possible through an inclusive and transparent process, and to avoid any arbitrary arrests of President Morsi and his supporters,” Obama said. The U.S. wasn’t taking

sides in the conflict, committing itself only to democracy and respect for the rule of law, Obama said.

Hours earlier, Egyptian armed forces ousted Morsi, an Islamist and Egypt’s first democratically elected president, after just a year in power. The military installed a temporary civilian government, suspended the constitution and called for new elections. Morsi denounced his ouster as a “full coup” as millions of his critics erupted in delirious scenes of joy

of thing,” said Nancy Phillips, from The Gallery. The art gallery opened the show to artists from all over the world and received entries from as far away as Santa Fe. Most artists were from Roswell, Phillips said. In all, 15 artists submitted 12-inch in diameter pieces of board, ceramic or canvas. Included in the submissions were photographs, paintings, three-dimensional works and a tortilla with an alien-shaped burn mark on it. Christana Martel won Best of Galaxy, Lauren Miller took first place, Melissa Wright won second place and Bill French was given third. The show was judged by ufologist and author Don Schmitt. The pieces provided a glimpse of what to expect a few steps away from the artists’ cooperative gallery on Main Street this weekend during the UFO Festival.

Organizers of this weekend’s UFO Festival have scheduled three days of exciting family events, parades, shows and informative lectures Friday through Sunday. “In the past, it's mostly been for adults. Now it will include the whole family," said Dusty Huckabee, director of MainStreet Roswell. "We have all family entertainment. We've got some surprises that will blow people's minds. It's going to be fun.” UFO Festival opening ceremonies start at 8 a.m. Friday at the UFO Museum on North Main Street. Vendors will open and downtown entertainment will kick off at 11 a.m. Guest lectures will begin at the Civic Center Exhibit Hall with Stanton Friedman lecturing about “Flying Saucers and Science,” and Kathy Marden will talk about “New evidence in the Betty and Barney Hill abduction.” Jesse Marcel Jr. will speak about “The Roswell Legacy,” and Tom Krikbride will speak about “New Space Aliens Versus

Restoring America’s Forests project for The Nature Conservancy, the environmental group. “So then they’ll take it out of these other kinds of accounts, which are the ones that actually reduce the risk. That’s what will end up happening, and that’s not a good policy.” Kim Thorsen, an Interior Department official, told the Senate Energy panel that the budget cuts have already forced her agency to make “dif ficult choices” including hiring seasonal firefighters for shorter periods and reducing the number of crews that remove dead trees. “The long-term impacts of the sequester are impossible to avoid,” she said. Other Interior officials said that, including the seasonal firefighters, the department will have 250 fewer positions in its fire programs, including planners and computer specialists. The Forest Service’s Tidwell told the Senate panel that from 2002 to 2012, his agency transferred $2.7 billion from other programs to pay for fighting fires, $2.3 billion of which Congress eventually restored. That “still led to disruptions within all Forest Service programs,” he told the senators.

ing wildfires — has been cut from $538 million this year to $510 million. The service was also facing a $50 million cut in its fire preparedness budget, the fund used to hire firefighters and buy equipment.

Together, the Interior Department and the Agriculture Department, which includes the Forest Service, have around 13,000 firefighters. Officials said the across-the-board cuts have had no direct impact on the 110 Hotshot crews around the country, the highly trained units based mostly in the West who respond to the worst wildfires. Most are financed and trained by the Fire Service and some by the Interior Department, but a handful — like the Arizona crew whose members died — are run locally.

“I don’t know of any Hotshot crew that’s been disbanded or not filled or been mothballed because of the sequester,” said Tom Nichols, division chief for fire and aviation management of the National Park Service, a part of the Interior Department. “Because they really are our first line and our elite line for dealing with wildfires.” Also affected by the cuts is the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s Disaster Relief Fund, from which Washington provides aid for victims of hurricanes and other disasters and reimburses state and local gover nments for some of their firefighting costs. The sequester pared that $10 billion fund by nearly $1 billion.

New Mexico State Police responded to a call at about 4:26 a.m. Wednesday after an abandoned vehicle was hit by a train on State Road 256 and Crossroads Road, the State Police said in a press release. Kurt M. McWhorter, 27, was driving the 2004 Toyota SUV

body wants to navigate to the water during the summer months, and you can still do that.” Campers and boaters are already lining up to get their spots on the sandy beaches at Elephant Butte, the state’s largest lake and the flagship of the state parks system. Rangers were expecting around 60,000 visitors for the holiday. R. Eunice Kent, the mayor of Elephant Butte, said she expected even more people Saturday for the annual fireworks show since Gov. Susana Martinez and others have been pushing for residents to attend organized displays this year rather than lighting off their own fireworks. Any boost in visitors will help, Kent said, explaining that businesses throughout the community noticed the drop in visitation during the Memorial Day holiday. Statistics show visitation at state parks around New Mexico during that weekend in May was nearly 315,000, a 40 percent decline from the same time last year. The parks brought in just over $157,000 from concessions, camping and dayuse fees, representing a decline of more than 41 percent. While the totals for the most recent fiscal year have yet to be tabulated, Mutz said he’s not disappointed given the challenges of the drought, wildfires and cloROSWELL LODGE #18 AF & AM

At about 3:40 a.m. conductor Jody C. Fly, 34, was operating a Southwestern Railroad train, heading north, when he saw the SUV and was unable to stop. The train pushed the vehicle, causing heavy damage to the SUV, but minimal


sures implemented by federal land managers.

In 2012, about 4.2 million people visited New Mexico parks and the agency brought in more than $4 million in revenue. The numbers were down from 2011. Revenues and visitation were also down the year before that.

New Mexico is coming off of two record fire seasons and is in its third year of extreme drought. Park officials had anticipated another dry year and started a special campaign several months ago to market the parks for their “adventure,” rather than just their lakes and streams. Mutz pointed to dozens of miles of trails and the history and culture preserved at many of the parks. Mutz said the push to get more people outdoors and to the parks is part of a long-term effort to establish the next generation of stewards. It’s also aimed at improving the agency’s bottom line since the parks depend on visitors for nearly 70 percent of their budget. With fewer visitors, there’s less revenue.

“What we do is adjust,” Mutz said. “We don’t spend our budget on anything that’s not absolutely necessary or required or that doesn’t fit those criteria of quality facilities and visitor safety. We’re very prudent.”

It is believed that alcohol, driver inattention and high speeds were factors in the incident. McWhorter was cited for careless driving, leaving the scene, duty upon striking a fixture and immediate notice of accident.

men and women to due process and peaceful assembly. He reaffirmed his call for a democratic Egypt that involves participation from secular and religious parties alike. “The voices of all those who have protested peacefully must be heard, including those who welcomed today’s developments, and those who have supported President Morsi,” Obama said, urging all sides to refrain from violence. Egyptian military leaders have assured the Obama administration that they were not interested in long-term rule following their toppling of Morsi. They appointed a gover nment of civilian technocrats to temporarily run the country in an apparent bid to forestall potential U.S. sanctions, American of ficials said Wednesday. If it is deemed that any country’s democratically elected leader is deposed by the military, the U.S. must cut off aid. But the administration can take time to make the legal deter mination about whether Morsi’s ouster constituted a coup, and Obama appeared Wednesday to be treading cautiously.

Sen. Patrick Leahy, who heads the Appropriations panel that oversees foreign aid, said he hoped Egypt’s military would make good on its vow to return power to the people, but that in the meantime, U.S. law was clear about what should happen. In conversations with Hagel and Gen. Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, senior Egyptian army officers pledged to put a civilian gover nment in place quickly — if not immediately — after removing Morsi from power, the U.S. officials said. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak by name about the private conversations that occurred over the past week. The officials also said the Egyptian military pledged to take steps to ensure the safety of Americans in Egypt, including the embassy in Cairo and the consulate in Alexandria. One official said the State Department was ordering all nonessential U.S. diplomats and the families of all American embassy personnel to leave Egypt.

NEW YORK (AP) — Gasoline prices are on a summer slide, giving U.S. drivers a break as they set out for the beach and other vacation spots for the Fourth of July. The national average for a gallon has fallen for 21 days straight and is now below $3.50 for the first time since February. The reason: Oil prices have been relatively stable, and refineries are turning out more gasoline after completing springtime maintenance. The drop may be interrupted temporarily because oil prices spiked Wednesday on fears that the turmoil in Egypt would disrupt the flow of crude in the Mideast. Analysts, however, don’t expect a sharp increase at the pump, because global oil supplies are ample and U.S. refineries are producing plenty of gas. The national average price of a gallon is $3.48, according to AAA, OPIS and Wright Express. That is 16 cents below its post-Memorial Day high of $3.64 on June 10. For much of the nation, the slide has been gradual. But for some drivers, especially in the Midwest, it has been a roller-coaster ride. Prices shot up there early last month because of refinery maintenance work and a fire, then plunged after the refineries ramped back up. Patrick Francis, who owns a used-car lot in Toledo, Ohio, filled up his Volvo for $2.89 per gallon over the weekend as he was preparing for a family trip to Hilton Head, S.C. Just three weeks earlier, he was paying more than $4. “I feel blessed,” he said. “It’s like a miracle.” Tom Kloza, chief oil analyst at, predicted the national average will hover between $3.30 and $3.60 for the rest of the summer. That would be somewhat lower than the last two summers, when gasoline prices spent part of the season above $3.70 per gallon. Oil prices shot up Wednesday above $101 per barrel, the highest since May 2012, as the crisis in Egypt deepened. Egypt is not a major oil producer but controls the Suez Canal, a major shipping lane for Middle Eastern crude. While analysts are not expecting a resulting surge in gasoline prices, they could rise quickly if the Mideast unrest does disrupt oil supplies. Gas could also climb if a hurricane threatens the heart of the refining industry along the Gulf Coast. This year’s early summer decline, while welcome, is smaller than the seasonal drops of the last two years, when gas prices also fell between Memorial Day and Independence Day. Gasoline is 15 cents more expensive than it was last year at this time. Gas prices typically rise in late winter or early spring when refineries perform maintenance and switch from making winter gasoline blends to the more complex summer blends required for clean-air rules.

Surveillance comes with a price, but also benefits A4 Thursday, July 4, 2013

Many libertarians, outraged by how our government spies on us, call me a “traitor” because I’m not very angry. I understand that the National Security Administration tracking patterns in our emails and phone calls could put us on a terrible, privacy-crushing slippery slope. But we’re not there yet. Some perspective: We are less closely watched by government than citizens of other countries. There are about 3,000 government security cameras around New York City, but London has 500,000. Some people in London love that, believing that the extra surveillance deters crime and catches terrorists. I thought government cameras helped identify the Boston Marathon bombers, but Ginger McCall of the Electronic Privacy Information Center told me that those cameras provide an illusion of security at a nasty price. “These cameras reveal very private information — where you go, who you go there with,” she said.





“They can record you going into the sex therapist’s office, the gay bar, the abortion clinic, any number of places that you would probably not want other people to know that you’re going ... “ She says that loss of privacy doesn’t even make us safer. “It isn’t necessarily how we found the Boston Marathon bomber. There were a lot of things going on there ... eyewitnesses identifications, cameras that were not government-owned (often cellphones) and eventually the fingerprints of the older brother ... if the cameras were really successful, there would be no crime in London.” But “no crime” is too much to

Roswell Daily Record

demand. I’m convinced that widespread use of cameras is one reason crime is down in America. Some criminals are caught, and others deterred. It does make a difference if cameras are controlled by a city government or a private department store. No store can lock me up. But I hate to get bogged down in the surveillance debate when there are so many other ways that government clearly threatens our freedom and our finances, while accomplishing nothing. Thinking about the NSA revelation, I also thought about other things my government does that I really hate. Within a few hours, I had a list of 100 — it was surprisingly easy. I encourage you to start a list of your own. Here are just a few example of horrible, destructive government: — Government (federal and local) now employs 22 million Americans. That’s outrageous. — Government runs up a $17 trillion deficit and yet continues to

throw our money at things like $100 million presidential trips, million-dollar bus stops and pork projects, as well as thousands of programs that don’t work. — It funds a drug war that causes crime and imprisons millions, disproportionately minorities. That’s horrible. — It spends your money on corporate welfare. And farm subsidies. And flood insurance that helps higher-income people like me build homes in risky spots. — Government keeps American Indians poor by smothering them with socialist central planning. It does this despite the fall of the Soviet Union and the obvious failure of socialism everywhere. That’s evil. — So are “too big to fail” bank bailouts. And other bailouts. — I’m furious that there are now 175,000 pages of federal law. No one understands all the laws, but they keep passing more. How dare they! NSA spying seems less horrible than these other abuses, especially if data mining might prevent

terrorism. I suspect people are outraged by the NSA in part because new threats seem scarier than old, familiar ones. That’s a trick government itself exploits all the time: Each new drug, each new health threat, each new dictator is made to sound like the most horrible thing ever. We should be wary of treating the new danger as if it’s the biggest danger. I don’t suggest that we should be passive about data mining and surveillance. But we should not let the latest threat make us passive about the old ones, some of them much more clearly wrong. What we already know about government is even scarier than what they know about us.

State of American workforce

One of the most overlooked numbers of last month was this one: minus 3.8 percent. That’s how much wages grew in the first three months of 2013. Or, in the dry prose of the June 5 Bureau of Labor Statistics report, “Unit labor costs in nonfarm businesses fell 4.3 percent in the first quarter of 2013, the combined effect of a 3.8 percent decrease in hourly compensation and the 0.5 percent increase in productivity.” In English: American workers were being paid 3.8 percent less than they were in the fourth quarter of 2012 and being 0.5 percent more productive. The positive spin: For every “unit” (employee) who was working, costs were down 4.3 percent. The 3.8 percent quarter -to-quarter decrease was the largest since the BLS started tracking this number in 1947. No wonder Wall Street was so happy. From 2007 to 2011 — the pits of the Great Recession and the first years of recovery — the average pretax income of the bottom 90 percent of American workers fell from $35,173 to $30,437. Data for 2012 won’t be available until the fall, but the trend likely continued, reports David Cay Johnston of the And being in the top 10 percent isn’t as exclusive a deal as it used to be either. It used to take a household income of $118,316 to crack the top 10. Now it only takes $110,651. Where is all the new money going? Most of it’s going to the famous richest 1 percent. In fact, they got 121 percent of all the postrecession gains, a fact made possible because everyone else was losing. This same 1 percent makes up a huge part of the political donor class, which elects the politicians who tell us that the problem is that taxes are too high, that unions are bad and the secret is Texas’ low-wage, low-tax model. But another study out last month suggests that seven out of 10 of those people being paid lousy wages are lucky to have jobs at all. Fifty percent of American workers are just mailing it in and 20 percent of them are actively subverting the goals of the organizations they work for. The problems, according to the Gallup Organization’s ongoing State of the American Workplace survey, can be laid at the feet of company managers; they are the important factor in workplace satisfaction. “Of the approximately 100 million people in America who hold full-time jobs, 30 million are engaged and inspired at work, so we can assume they have a great boss,” the study reported. “At the other end of the spectrum are roughly 20 million employees who are actively disengaged. These employees, who have bosses from hell that make them miserable, roam the halls spreading discontent. The other 50 million American workers are not engaged. They’re just kind of present, but not inspired by their work or their managers.” If productivity is increasing, and generally it has, though not at rates seen in the 1990s and early 2000s, it’s doing so despite a whole slew of unhappy, disgruntled or merely disinterested workers. But how much does the long-term decline in wages account for that slew of unhappy employees? Sure, they’re telling the Gallup survey that it’s their boss’s fault, but perhaps the boss would look better after a 10 percent raise. It appears the workforce is maxed out with the “do more with less” mantra. Workers know there are 11 million unemployed Americans who’d love to have their jobs, so many of them do just enough to avoid getting fired. Meanwhile, their bosses — some of whom probably shouldn’t be bosses in the first place — may be enforcing decisions made way above their pay grade. At the very top, executives are getting record-high compensation for running “lean, efficient” organizations. Now comes Gallup to tell them they can have a happier (and presumably more productive) workforce by instructing their managers to do more smiling and back-patting. The guess here is that people would rather have the cash.

For months President Obama has been in the uncomfortable position of straddling a barbed-wire fence—does he appease his ardent environmental supporters or advocate for economic growth that will help all of America? In his speech outlining his Climate Action Plan, he made his choice clear.

I read about a new discovery that age-related heart failure can be reversed in mice. Could that help my husband? DEAR READER: There are different kinds of congestive heart failure, and there are effective treatments for many. Your husband may have a common kind called age-related diastolic dysfunction. There is no specific treatment that prevents or reverses this condition. But you are right that a remarkable treatment was recently reported for a similar condition in mice. Congestive heart failure occurs when the heart cannot


thing the president really needs to do now is to begin the process of shutting down the conventional coal plants. Politically, the White House is hesitant to say they’re having a war on coal. On the other hand, a war on coal is exactly what’s needed.” However, the American public is not clamoring for the closure of costeffective coal-fueled power


pump efficiently enough to meet the body’s need for blood. In a young, healthy heart, when blood enters the main pumping chambers (the ventricles), their walls stretch and the chambers expand to receive all the blood. In age-related diastolic dysfunction, the heart muscle becomes thicker and stiffer. As a result, when blood enters the heart, the heart muscle

plants. What they want is cheap energy, but Obama is, as the Washington Post states: “a president bizarrely antagonistic toward domestic energy production and low energy prices.” In the Pew Research Center’s annual policy priorities survey, just 28% say dealing with global warming is a top priority for the president and Congress this year. In fact, the president’s own research shows that his favorability rating “plummeted” with focus groups when he vowed to attack climate change—yet, promising to use executive action, he’s pushed forward with plans he knows couldn’t

get through Congress. Addressing the executive order emphasis, U.S. Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Thomas J. Donohue says: “It is unfortunate that on a matter of such importance to all Americans that the administration has chosen to bypass our elected representatives in favor of unilateral actions and go-it-alone tactics.” The Washington Post explains why Obama is now seeking to go around Congress to enact anti-coal regulations by fiat: “When Democ-

can’t stretch enough to accept all the blood. The blood backs up into the lungs, causing breathing difficulty. Blood also backs up into the rest of the body, causing fatigue and swelling — particularly of the legs and feet. We don’t know what causes age-related heart failure in humans, and because of that, we don’t know how to prevent or reverse it. A similar condition occurs in mice, and we may now have figured out how to treat it. A group of my colleagues at Harvard Medical School conducted the research in mice that you read about. They were led by Dr. Richard Lee, co-editor-in-chief of the Harvard Heart Letter, and professor Amy Wagers.

Dr. Lee and Dr. Wager’s team joined the blood circulation of an old mouse to that of a young mouse. Suddenly, the arteries and veins of the two animals shared the same blood. After four weeks of a shared circulation, the thickened, stiff heart muscle of the old mouse became dramatically less thick and stiff. The experiment was repeated on many pairs of old and young mice, with the same results. This indicated that some substance was present in the blood of the young mice that rejuvenated the heart muscle of the old mice. Most likely, that substance had been in the blood of the old mice when they were younger, but the

substance had decreased as the mice aged. The team then identified a substance, called GDF11, which was present at high levels in the blood of young mice but not old mice. They treated old mice with enough GDF11 to raise their blood levels of GDF11 to the same levels as it was present in young mice. Again, the thickened, stiff heart muscle of the old mice became thinner and more flexible.

This discovery in mice may one day lead to effective treatments to prevent or reverse this common type of heart failure in humans. Although it will take many more years of research to determine if this discovery will help us, recent advances in aging research gives me hope that it will.

Meetings will address proposed fishing rules

Roswell Daily Record


Continued from Page A4

Thursday, July 4, 2013

SANTA FE—The New Mexico Department of Game and Fish is accepting comments and conducting public meetings to discuss several proposed changes to state fishing regulations. Proposed changes include: Close McKenna Creek and the portion of Iron Creek from the fish barrier upstream to headwaters to all fishing. This proposed change also would remove the Special Trout Water designation on Iron Creek. Both of these creeks contain genetically pure populations of Gila trout that are vital to the long-term sustainability of the species, and the closure will conserve these populations during post-fire recovery of the watersheds. Allow licensed anglers and individuals younger than age 12 to take game fish by bow and arrow (bow fishing). All daily bag, possession and size limits would apply. Bow fishing for game species would not be allowed within Special Trout Waters. This proposal would expand recreational angling opportunity. Update all regulations to replace outdated language referring to individuals with disabilities. Reduce the statewide striped bass daily bag limit from 2 to 1. This proposed change would not affect the unlimited daily bag and possession limit of striped bass in San Juan County. Based upon surveys, the Elephant Butte Lake striped bass population has shown a decreasing trend. A reduced harvest would help sustain this population. Remove the “Youth Only” designation

rats controlled both the House and Senate, Obama could not get climate control legislation passed.” In his hit-and-run speech, delivered hours before leaving the country, President Obama issued a directive for the EPA, instructing them to begin drafting new rules governing emissions from power plants. Current EPA regulations are already closing coal-fueled power plants at an alarming rate—which New Mexico Public Regulations Commissioner Pat L yons calls “the real energy crisis that no one is talking about.” He told me: “The biggest issue facing utilities is the closure of 300 coal-fueled power plants. This represents tens of thousands of jobs in the coal mining industry and billions of dollars of revenues for local, state and federal government.” There are no plans to effectively replace the comparatively cheap electricity. Progressive thought leaders Michael Shellenberger and Ted Nordhous state: “energy poverty causes more harm to the poor than global warming” and cheap energy “makes the poor vastly less vulnerable to climate impacts.” Europe has already tried this experiment and found it to be economically devastating. In April, the European Parliament voted against saving the Emissions Trading Scheme (ETS)—Europe’s flagship environmental program. Roger Helmer, a member of the European Parliament explained that propping up the ETS would “make energy more expensive; undermine European competitiveness even further; drive even more businesses and jobs and investments offshore (known in the jargon as ‘carbon leakage’); and force more households and pensioners into fuel poverty.” Regarding the April 16 vote, The Financial Times reported: “Complaints from business groups that the carbon market and other climate policies are contributing to higher energy prices at a time when they are already grappling with a weak economy appeared to be decisive in Tuesday’s vote.” To meet its energy needs, Europe is now importing U.S. Coal and North American wood. Speaking of fuel poverty, nowhere are people living in more substandard conditions than Africa— plagued by malaria and inadequate medical care, most don’t have indoor plumbing and even fewer have electricity. Shellenberger and Nordhous accuse the environmental movement of offering “the global poor not what they want—cheap electricity—but more of what they don’t want, namely intermittent and expensive power” which “offers the poor no path to the kinds of high-energy lifestyles Western environmentalists take for granted.” In response to the president’s Climate Action Plan, Senator Lisa Murkowski (AK-R) was talking about Obama’s African tour when she quipped: “I encourage him to note what life looks like in parts of the continent where people do not have—or cannot afford—access to energy.” While shuttering coal-fueled power plants, the Climate Action Plan calls for more “clean energy” which

and allow licensed anglers ages 12 years or older (including adults) to fish at Young Pond in Las Cruces. Because of extreme drought conditions, angling opportunity has become very limited in Dona Ana County. Allowing all licensed anglers to fish at Young Pond will expand angling opportunity. Young Pond currently is restricted to anglers younger than 12 years of age.

Reduce the channel catfish daily bag limit from 15 to 2 on the following waters: Ned Houk, Harry McAdams, Young Pond, Roswell Kids Pond, Perch Lake and Blue Hole Park Pond. Most of these waters are stocked with catchable channel catfish and a reduced daily bag limit would prolong the availability of catfish to anglers. Department staff will be at the following meetings to discuss and accept public comments about the proposed changes:

Roswell: Tuesday, July 9, 6-8 p.m., New Mexico Game and Fish Office, 1912 W. Second St.

Raton: Tuesday, July 9, 6-8 p.m., New Mexico Game and Fish Office, 215 York Canyon Road.

will “cut our dependence on foreign oil.” He’s directing the Department of Interior to “green light” wind and solar projects on public lands and wants Congress to “invest in the clean-energy companies.” We’ve got two problems here. First, wind and solar don’t cut our dependence of foreign oil. The two have no connection to one another. The wind and the sun can be harnessed and, as a result, do produce electricity—albeit inefficient, ineffective, and uneconomical electricity. Foreign oil that we import is for our transportation fleet. It does not, with very few exceptions, produce electricity. Second, in Obama’s 2009 Stimulus Bill, he allocated nearly $100 billion for green energy projects that have produced an embarrassing number, more than 50, of bankruptcies and near bankruptcies—while lining the pockets of his friends and donors. He is obviously a slow learner. Dr. Phil might ask, “How’s that working for ya?” In Tuesday’s speech, Obama did point to one success: “Since 2006, no country on Earth has reduced its total carbon pollution by as much as the United States of America.” The United States is the only industrialized country to actually lower carbon emissions. We’ve done it, not through extreme policies—but through private enterprise embracing our abundant natural gas. Encouraging extraction in the U.S. and approving Liquefied Natural Gas export terminals would reduce global carbon emissions and help our economy. “Rather than new federal regulations, he should be encouraging more natural gas development and approving Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) export licenses,” states Kathleen Sgamma, Vice President of Government & Public Affairs for the Western Energy Alliance. “By exporting LNG, not only would America benefit from huge job growth, but we would be providing a low-carbon solution to other nations and helping them to likewise reduce their greenhouse gas emissions. Germany and Japan have increased their use of coal because they lack access to affordable natural gas, and their carbon emissions have risen. By stubbornly repressing exports, the President is standing in the way of a global solution to a global problem.” The fact that natural gas is only given cursory mention, rather than being an integral part of Obama’s National Climate Action Plan, exposes his true motives—which, I believe, are not really about carbon emission reductions, but rather furthering America’s declining international status. Why else would he emphasize what has proven not to work and eschew what we know to be effective? The author of Energy Freedom, Marita Noon serves as the executive director for Energy Makes America Great Inc. and the companion educational organization, the Citizens’ Alliance for Responsible Energy (CARE). Together they work to educate the public and influence policy makers regarding energy, its role in freedom, and the American way of life. Combining energy, news, politics, and, the environment through public events, speaking engagements, and media, the organizations’ combined efforts serve as America’s voice for energy.

Manny Ramirez poses for a picture after signing with the EDA Rhinos in Taiwan’s professional baseball league in March. Ramirez signed a minor-league deal with the Rangers on Wednesday and will report to Triple-A Round Rock today.

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Manny Ramirez is apparently cutting his long dreadlocks for another shot at the major leagues. The Texas Rangers said Wednesday they had agreed to terms on a minor-league contract with the 41-yearold slugger, who hasn’t played in the big leagues since 2011 with Tampa Bay. Rangers general manager Jon Daniels said part of the deal was Ramirez, twice suspended for testing positive for banned drugs, agreeing to cut his hair and “comply with our minor league rules on appearance and discipline.” Ramirez was set to report to Triple-A Round Rock on Thursday, and he will be a designated hitter whenever he is activated. He played for three months in Taiwan before leaving the Rhinos on June 20. “It’s kind of a no-risk flier,” said Daniels, indicating there was no time frame for him to be called up to the majors. “We like giving guys second chances. We

Murray, Joker in Wimbledon semifinals

LONDON (AP) — They sighed when Andy Murray faulted. They stood and roared when he hit winners. And when Murray dropped the first two sets of his Wimbledon quarterfinal Wednesday, the 15,000 Centre Court spectators were suddenly so silent that birds could be heard chirping. By the time his five-set comeback was nearly complete, more than two hours later, the fans were greeting each point that went Murray’s way with celebrations of the sort normally reserved for a championship. It’s been 77 years since a British man won the country’s Grand Slam tennis tournament, and thanks to the second-seeded Murray’s 4-6, 3-6, 6-1, 6-4, 7-5 victory over 54th-ranked Fernando Verdasco, the locals still can hold out hope the wait will end Sunday. First things first, of course. Murray, who is from Scotland, will play in the semifinals at the All England Club for the fifth consecutive year Friday, facing No. 24 Jerzy Janowicz of Poland.

The other semifinal is No. 1 Novak Djokovic of Serbia against No. 8 Juan Martin del Potro of Argentina. There is no doubt who will be the recipient of the most boisterous support. “Great atmosphere at the end of the match. ... I love it when it’s like that. It was extremely noisy,” said Murray, who lost last year’s Wimbledon final to Roger Federer. “They were right into it, pretty much every single point.” Murray needed to summon some pretty strong tennis, and plenty of grit, for his seventh career victory after facing a two-set deficit. He never panicked — no matter what all of his self-admonishing muttering and gesticulating looked like — and eventually figured out how to handle Verdasco’s 130 mph serves and high-risk, high-reward style. Murray’s mother, British Fed Cup captain Judy Murray, called the match “one of the toughest to sit through.” “When you play more and more

TORONTO (AP) — Max Scherzer worked into the seventh inning to become the first pitcher in 27 years to get off to a 13-0 start, leading the Detroit Tigers to a 6-2 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays on Wednesday night. Alex Avila hit a threerun homer and Victor Martinez belted a solo shot as Detroit beat Toronto for the eighth time in 10 meetings. Scherzer (13-0) allowed two runs and seven hits, struck out eight and walked one in 6 1 ⁄ 3 innings. He is the first pitcher to begin the season with 13 wins and no losses since Roger Clemens won his first 14 decisions for the Boston Red Sox in 1986. Scherzer also improved to 4-0 with a 1.78 ERA in six career starts against the Blue Jays. He has 139 strikeouts this season, second only to Texas’ Yu Darvish among AL starters.

matches, and gain more experience, you understand how to turn matches around and how to change the momentum of games,” Murray said. “Maybe when I was younger, I could have lost that match. But I think I’ve learnt how to come back from tough situations more as I got older.” He’s only 26, but he truly has matured as a player over the past 12 months. After shedding tears following the 2012 Wimbledon final, Murray returned to the same spot four weeks later and beat Federer to win a gold medal at the London Olympics. Then, at the U.S. Open in September, he defeated Djokovic to win his first Grand Slam title. Asked if his triumph in Flushing Meadows lessened the pressure to succeed at home, Murray said: “It’s See SEMIS, Page B2

know on and off the field the good and bad in Manny’s career. But we’re inclined to give him an opportunity here.” Ramirez hit .352 with eight homers and 43 RBIs for the Rhinos. The team tried to keep the 12-time All-Star, but he wanted to return to his family in New York. Ramirez was suspended for 50 games in 2009 while with the Los Angeles Dodgers after testing positive for a banned drug. He retired in April 2011 instead of serving a 100game ban for a second positive test while with Tampa Bay, but later agreed to a reduced 50-game suspension and played in the minors for Oakland in 2012. A lifetime .312 hitter, Ramirez is 14th on the career home runs list with 555. The Rangers didn’t see Ramirez play in Taiwan, nor were they among the teams that worked him out




Detroit Tigers • He isn’t the ace of the staff, but he’s pitching like it in 2013. Scherzer won his 13th straight decision to start the year on Wednesday, becoming the first pitcher in 27 years to start the year 13-0. The Tigers beat the Blue Jays 6-2 and Scherzer allowed two runs on seven hits and struck out eight in 6 1/3 innings. The last player to start 13-0 was Roger Clemens in 1986. MAX SCHERZER

in Florida recently, Daniels said. The Rangers GM said Ramirez was looking for an opportunity either in the U.S. or Japan. “We’re really just kind of going off the resume here a little bit,” Daniels said. “If he’s productive and we feel he fits our culture here in the clubhouse, we’ll give him an opportunity. If either of those ends don’t pan out, then kind of no harm, no foul.” Ramirez won two World Series with Boston, including 2007 when Rangers hitting coach Dave Magadan was in his first year in that job with the Red Sox. But he had a stormy end when he forced his way out of Boston in a trade a year later, a point that Magadan made to Daniels when they discussed Ramirez. “There were some bridges that were burned in Boston,” Magadan said. “It was unfortunate the way it ended up there because he did a lot of good things while he was there. But in the end it wasn’t pretty.” Ramirez hit 17 homers in the final 53 games of 2008 after the trade to Los Angeles, but he has just 28 since then because of injuries and the suspensions. He was 1 for 17 without a homer with Tampa when the second drug suspension hit two years ago. “I think it’s a guy who loves the game and just wants to continue to play,” New York Yankees manager Joe Girardi said before Wednesday’s game in Minnesota. “You don’t ever want to feel like you took your uniform off sooner than you should’ve. So good for him.” The Rangers entered their game against Seattle without a home run in four straight games, their longest streak in more than two years. They need a right-handed power bat with switch-hitter Lance Berkman struggling through a knee injury and hitting just .198 in his past 25 games. “I haven’t really seen him on video, just a couple of highlights I’ve seen from some of his home runs in Taiwan,” Magadan said. “We’ll see how it goes when he gets to Round Rock and see what kind of shape he’s in and see if he can still swing it.” He apparently won’t be swinging any dreadlocks, though.

pretty much the same. Not a whole lot’s changed.” Murray tries to avoid reading the coverage about him, but he can’t help noticing newspapers left around the locker room. Even British Prime Minister David Cameron took an interest, writing Wednesday morning on Twitter: “The sky over Downing St a little grey right now. Let’s hope it clears up for (at)Andy—Murray to win at (hash)Wimbledon. Best of luck Andy.” Wednesday’s other quarterfinals lasted a mere three sets each and the most compelling segments came at the very beginning of 2009 U.S. Open

champion del Potro’s 6-2, 6-4, 7-6 (5) win against No. 4 David Ferrer, and the very end of Janowicz’s 7-5, 6-4, 6-4 victory over 130th-ranked Lukasz Kubot in the first Grand Slam match between two men from Poland. Janowicz, 22, reached his first major semifinal — the first for a man from his country — by pounding serves at a tournament-high 140 mph, compiling 30 aces, and saving all six break points he faced. When it finished, Kubot walked around the net to Janowicz’s side of the court and the pair of Davis Cup teammates and good pals enveloped each other in a warm embrace. Then they yanked their white shirts of f and exchanged them, the way soccer players trade jerseys after games.

Roswell Daily Record Janowicz sat in his sideline chair, covered his face and sobbed. “It’s not easy to control all of the feelings inside my body,” he said. “I was never in (a major) quarterfinal before. I never had a chance to be in (the) semifinal of a Grand Slam. I never played against Lukasz before.” Honest perhaps to a fault, Janowicz gave a succinct answer when asked for his thoughts about the semifinal between Djokovic vs. del Potro: “I don’t care.” On the fifth point the 6-foot-6 del Potro played Wednesday, his left foot slid out from under him as he sprinted to reach a ball. Del Potro’s heavily wrapped left knee, which he hyperextended on a face-first tumble in the third round, slackened, then bent backward.

“Really painful,” del Potro said. “I was scared.” He fell to the turf and rolled over twice, then stayed down until a trainer came out to check on him and dispense anti-inflammatory medicine. “Magic pills,” del Potro called them. After a 10-minute break, he resumed playing — and playing quite well. He hasn’t lost a set en route to his first Wimbledon semifinal. Djokovic also has won all 15 sets he’s played, including in a 7-6 (5), 6-4, 6-3 victory over No. 7 Tomas Berdych to reach a 13th consecutive Grand Slam semifinal, the second-longest streak in men’s tennis history behind Roger Federer’s 23.

Cops: Evidence found in Hernandez ‘flop house’

WRENTHAM, Mass. (AP) — Aaron Hernandez’s home address was no secret after the media camped outside the massive house for days, and cameras caught him leaving, hands cuffed behind his back, when he was arrested for murder. But police didn’t know about his “flop house.” A tip from a friend of the former New England Patriots tight end led authorities to the apartment about 11 miles away. Subsequent searches turned up boxes of ammunition and clothing that police believe could help prove the murder case against Hernandez, according to court documents. The items were found June 26, the day Her nandez was arrested for allegedly orchestrating the death of Odin Lloyd, according to search warrant records filed in Wrentham court. Hernandez, 23, has pleaded not guilty. His attor neys have said the evidence against him is circumstantial and he’s eager to clear his name. A message requesting comment on the documents was left Wednesday with a spokesman for Hernandez’s legal team. Hernandez’s two-bedroom apartment, which went for $1,200 a month, was located in a three-story complex in Franklin, a few towns over from his North Attleborough house. Police learned about it from Hernandez’s friend, Carlos Ortiz. Prosecutors say Ortiz was with Hernandez and Ernest Wallace when they drove with Lloyd to an industrial

park where Lloyd was shot. Police haven’t said who shot Lloyd. Ortiz, who lives in Hernandez’s hometown of Bristol, Conn., has since been charged with carrying a firearm the day of the shooting. Wallace is charged with being an accessory after the fact in the slaying According to the documents, Bristol police interviewed Ortiz the day before Hernandez was arrested. He told them “Hernandez has another address that not many people know about,” and that he thought he’d left a cell phone there. Police initially got the search warrant to look for Ortiz’s phone. But as they spotted additional items in the apartment — including a box of ammunition on an end table — they applied for additional warrants for the residence, and for a Hummer parked outside. In a bedroom, they found a white hooded sweatshirt, according to the documents. A cranberry-colored cap, with a light blue front panel and the word “society” spelled backward, was found on a kitchen table, the documents said. Surveillance video showed Hernandez wearing a similar sweatshirt the night Lloyd was killed on June 17, the records said. And he was wearing “this same unique hat” in a picture shown on a local news station taken outside a nightclub June 14, the Friday before the killing, according to the documents. Prosecutors say Hernandez arranged Lloyd’s shooting because he was upset at him for talking to certain people at

Seager HR in 10th lifts Mariners over Rangers 4-2

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Kyle Seager hit a two-run homer in the 10th inning, and the Seattle Mariners won consecutive games in Texas for the first time in more than a year with a 4-2 victory over the Rangers on Wednesday night. Michael Saunders walked on a full-count pitch with two out before Seager connected against Robbie Ross (4-2) for his third hit of the game. Seager’s 12th homer landed in the first row of seats in right field. Charlie Furbush (2-4) pitched 1 2-3 scoreless innings for the win, and Tom Wilhelmsen was perfect in the 10th for his 17th save. The Mariners last won two straight in Texas on May 29-30, 2012, when they took the last two of a three-game series. They’ll go for a sweep Thursday night. The Rangers dropped to 30-14 at home against Seattle since the start of 2009. Texas center fielder Leonys Martin went 0 for 4 to end the longest active hitting streak in the majors at 15 games. Texas’ Derek Holland, making his first outing since a two-hit shutout in a 2-0 win at Yankee Stadium, struck out 10 and had seven hits and two walks on his line.

Ramirez lifts Dodgers to 10-8 win over Rockies

DENVER (AP) — Hanley Ramirez had four hits, including a solo homer in the ninth, to help the Los Angeles Dodgers hold off the Colorado Rockies 10-8 on Wednesday night in a game outfielder Yasiel Puig left early with a bruised left hip after a leaping catch at the wall. Juan Uribe, Adrian Gonzalez and Matt Kemp also homered for the Dodgers, who have won 10 of their last 11 games to climb back into the thick of the NL West race. Zack Greinke (6-2) struggled on the mound but still earned his third straight win. He gave up five runs in five innings and tied a career high with seven walks. Reliever Paco Rodriguez pitched 1 1⁄3 scoreless innings to set up Kenley Jansen, who recorded the final four outs to pick up his eighth save in 11 chances.

Vast war letter collection shows sacrifice ORANGE, Calif. (AP) — U.S. Army Staff Sgt. Horace Evers was setting up a command post in Munich with other Allied soldiers in the final days of World War II when he stumbled across sheets of Adolf Hitler’s personal stationery in the dictator’s abandoned apartment. Evers, just barely 26, crossed out Hitler’s name below an embossed swastika, scrawled his own name — “S/Sgt. Evers” — and then sat down to write home about the stacks of hollow-eyed corpses he had seen the day before at Dachau. “The first box car I came to had about 30 what were once humans in it. All were just bone with a layer of skin over them. Most of the eyes were open and had an indescribable look about them,” he wrote in the May 2, 1945 letter. “How can people do things like that? I never believed they could until now.” The pages, now browned and creased, are part of a stunning collection of 90,000 wartime letters stretching from the Revolutionary War to modern-day conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan that will be housed in a new Center for American War Letters opening this fall at Chapman University in Southern California. Private collector and author Andrew Carroll, who began gathering war correspondence 15 years ago, began a nationwide speaking tour this week to unearth more historical gems gathering dust in the closets and attics of veterans and their descendants. A play based on the letters, “If All the Sky Were Paper,” will also tour this summer. The war letters, some flecked with blood or coated with a fine layer of sand, bring history to life in a way that little else can. One from World War II is pierced by a bullet hole that hit the soldier’s backpack but didn’t kill him. Another is enhanced by an elaborate cartoon done

by an airman who was supposed to work for Disney upon his retur n, but was killed in action. “It’s about real people and what they go through, whether it’s frontline combat, whether it’s on the home front: combat letters, love letters, last letters,” Carroll said. “The thing about war letters is, because they’re written in these life and death circumstances, almost by their nature they tend to be more vivid and vibrant. Everything is more intense.” The collection, which Carroll dubbed the Legacy Project, covers the vast sweep of U.S. history as seen through the eyes of the people who lived it. One passionate letter was written by Spotswood Rice, a freed slave who joined the Union Army and realized his unit was passing within miles of his former master’s home, where his daughter Mary was still enslaved by the man’s wife. “I want you to understand ... that where ever you and I meets we are enmays to each orhtere,” he wrote the woman. “When I get ready to come after mary I will have ... a power and authority to bring (her) away and to execute vengencens on them that holds my Child,” wrote Rice, who was a private with the 67th U.S. Colored Infantry. “You will then know how to talke to me.” Another letter, raw with a different kind of emotion, is a last goodbye scrawled by a World War II POW on the back of two family photos he had carried with him throughout the war. Lt. Thomas R. Kennedy died shortly after he wrote the January 1945 note from aboard a Japanese prison ship. “Momie & Dad: It is pretty hard to check out this way without a fighting chance but we can’t live forever. I’m not afraid to die, I just hate the thought of not seeing you again,” he wrote.

In this Tuesday, June 18, photo, historian Andrew Carroll poses for a photograph, in Washington, with one of his war letters that has a bullet hole in it.

“Take care of my nieces and nephews don’t let them ever want anything as I want even warmth or water now.” Other letters provide a narrative of historical events in the unadorned language of scared young men. One such account was penned by a seaman trapped aboard the USS New Orleans during the bombing of Pearl Harbor. The ship was undergoing repairs and had no power for its guns and no way of leaving port. “We’re trying to get underway if possible. We were just struck by a bomb near the bow,” Ensign William Czako wrote to his sister on Dec. 7, 1941, as Japanese bombers screamed overhead. “I don’t know why I am writing this

because if we are hit with a bomb here — they won’t find enough of me and the rest — let alone this letter. I imagine it is to show myself that I can be calm under fire,” wrote Czako, who survived the war and went on to work in a Virginia shipyard. The collection has just a few letters from the Revolutionary War, where paper was scarce and mail service almost nonexistent. In one extremely rare letter, however, a teenage soldier writes to his “honored parents” to say he was shot in the head but hopes that “With the Assistance of god that I Shall git wel again.” The young private, Henry Johnson of New Jersey, survived and became a shoemaker, according to Carroll’s research.

Thousands march to Expert says Martin’s honor Pickett’s Charge DNA not on gun grip

GETTYSBURG, Pa. (AP) — Thousands took a milelong commemorative march Wednesday across the Gettysburg field where the Confederate Army made its final, ill-fated charge 150 years ago in the last clash of the pivotal battle of the Civil War. A National Park Service spokeswoman said the Pickett’s Charge walk was the most ambitious program ever planned to remember the South’s failed assault, during which more than 12,000 men in nine brigades tried to break the Union lines. It ended the three-day Battle of Gettysburg on July 3, 1863. On Wednesday, visitors broke up into nine groups led by park rangers and reenactors dressed in period uniforms. Just like in 1863, the Confederate lines drew out of the woods — but followed this time by tourists snapping pictures and recording their march. News photographers followed along, too, and at times groups broke out into Rebel Yells in an event turned festive at times. The lines broke down and reformed again when the marchers reached a fence line. Unlike 150 years ago, the walkers funneled through openings in the fence soldiers would have jumped before continuing “the advance.”

Re-enactors at Gettysburg National Military Park pause for the playing of Taps at the end of a commemorative march where Pickett's Charge took place during ongoing activities commemorating the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg, Wednesday.

“It didn’t work well in 1863, and we’re not sure how well it will today,” Park Service spokeswoman Katie Lawhon said earlier Wednesday. The march wasn’t intended as a re-enactment with gunfire and bayonets like other events being held to mark the anniversary. It was supposed to be reverential in tone, and buglers ended the march playing “Taps.” Up to 10,000 Union and Confederate soldiers died over three bloody days at Gettysburg, while another roughly 30,000 were wounded. “This is a commemorative

march. We’re trying to be respectful,” Lawhon said. Battle re-enactments are held on private properties. The second of two re-enactments planned for this anniversary period, a fourday event, starts Thursday at the Redding Far m in Gettysburg. The town’s Independence Day parade scheduled for Wednesday evening was cancelled following a police investigation after a car crashed into a house. Some streets in a neighborhood about a quarter-mile from the military park was closed while many visitors were still gathered for the march.

SANFORD, Fla. (AP) — Trayvon Martin’s DNA was not found on the grip of George Zimmerman’s gun, and Zimmerman’s DNA was not found under the unarmed teen’s fingernails, a law enforcement expert said Wednesday in testimony that prosecutors hope will refute the neighborhood watch volunteer’s self-defense claim. Zimmerman has pleaded not guilty to second-degree murder and says he shot the 17-year -old in the chest to protect himself as Martin reached for his firearm during a fight. Judge Debra Nelson dismissed jurors without the prosecution having rested its case as it had hoped to do by day’s end. Nelson won’t resume testimony until Friday morning, giving jurors the Fourth of July off. They will remain sequestered during the holiday break. Florida Department of Law Enforcement DNA expert Anthony Gorgone also testified that Zimmerman’s DNA was found among blood on a shirt Martin was wearing under his hooded sweatshirt. While cross-examining Gorgone, defense attorney Don West focused on the packaging of the DNA samples, suggesting it could have led to the samples being degraded. Gorgone told him that Martin’s two sweatshirts had been packaged in plastic while wet, instead of a paper bag where they can dry out, and when he opened the samples they smelled of ammonia and mold. Florida Department of Law Enforcement analyst Amy Siewert also testified that tearing and residue on Martin’s clothing showed the gun was directly against him when it fired. Prosecutors have sought to portray Zimmerman as a vigilante who profiled Martin as the teen walked home on a rainy night. They called Gorgone on the same day they presented evidence that they say shows Zimmerman had aspirations of becoming a police officer and knew about Florida’s “stand-your-ground” law. The law

says a person has no duty to retreat and can invoke self-defense in killing someone if it is necessary to prevent death or great bodily harm. Zimmerman had maintained in an interview with Fox News last year that he did not know about the law. Prosecutors say he did have knowledge of it, however, because the subject was covered in a college class on criminal justice Zimmerman attended. They called as a witness Alexis Francisco Carter, the military attorney who taught the class. Carter described Zimmerman as one of his better students and said the neighborhood watch volunteer got an “A” in his class. Under cross-examination, Carter gave two definitions of legal concepts that seemed to bolster the defense’s case. He explained that a person can make a selfdefense argument if the person has a “reasonable apprehension” of death or great bodily harm. “It’s imminent fear. The fact alone that there isn’t an injury doesn’t necessarily mean that the person didn’t have a reasonable apprehension or fear,” Carter said. “The fact that there are injuries might support there was reasonable apprehension and fear.” Carter also explained the concept of “imperfect self-defense,” when a person is being threatened but then counters with a force disproportionately greater than the force used against them. “They would have the right to defend themselves?” said defense attorney Don West. “Right,” Carter said. Another instructor, Seminole County State College professor Scott Pleasants, testified that Zimmerman had taken his online criminal justice class. Pleasants’ testimony via Skype from Colorado, broadcast live on television, was interrupted when he started getting inundated with Skype calls.


DEAR ABBY: My wife and I have been married 14 years. During that time her mother has called every single day. Initially, I was OK with it because we were living in Florida and she was in Iowa. However, since we moved back to Iowa to be near her (we live three miles apart), she continues to call nightly. Sometimes she’ll call during dinner or during our “couple’s time” after the kids are asleep. I have expressed my dissatisfaction with this, particularly because my wife and MIL see each other and talk throughout the day. Am I out of line to ask for fami-


ly/couple time during which no outside calls come in, or am I being unreasonable? This is a touchy subject, and I don’t know how to resolve it to everyone’s satisfaction. BOTHERED IN THE HAWKEYE STATE

Probably not. Everyone is entitled to privacy, and being private doesn’t necessarily mean you have something to hide. Your husband may want to look at your postings because he doesn’t completely trust you. Or he may have no interests of his own.

KING FEATURES SYNDICATE Dear Heloise: I took a load of my best friend’s clothes out of the DRYER to discover he didn’t empty his pockets (that’s right, I don’t check pockets), and a pack of gum was left in a pocket — gum on the drum! I rubbed a little peanut butter on the drum, wiped it off with a soft cloth and then wiped the drum with a little degreaser (just to be safe). Good as new! Tammy, via email

Today’s Crossword Puzzle

I’m glad this worked for you. Here’s another way to remove gum from a dryer drum: The gum needs to be softened first. To do this, put a couple of old towels in the dryer. Let it run on the warm setting for a few minutes. Make a paste of 1 tablespoon of powdered laundry detergent and water. Next, scrub the gum stains with the paste and a nylon-net scrubbie. Finally, wipe the inside of the dryer with a damp towel until there is no gum residue left. And just to be on the safe side, don’t use the dryer until you run a couple of old, damp towels inside. Use a damp towel to wipe out the inside of the dryer. And important for all readers: Check all pockets before putting garments into the dryer. You never know where gum, a lipstick or lipbalm tube or a crayon might be hiding. Heloise

It works great, and now we feel more comfortable knowing the straw is clean as a whistle. A Reader, via email Dear Heloise: I read the hint about a smelly closet. I also moved into a house with a smelly closet. I put used fabric-softener dryer sheets into a mesh bag (in which oranges come) and hung it in the closet. It worked wonderfully. Diane H. in Kentucky Dear Heloise: I read the hint about a woman bringing her dog to the vet in a baby stroller. My older mother still gets around pretty well, but she needs some help with balance. She takes an umbrella stroller with her whenever she goes out. It’s a good place to put her purse and bags so that she isn’t juggling packages. It gives her an extra bit of stability, and it’s smaller and easier to maneuver than a walker, which she really doesn’t need. The stroller has been a perfect solution to her staying mobile.

Oil above $101 on US supply drop, Egypt FINANCIAL

Roswell Daily Record

NEW YORK (AP) — The price of oil rose to its highest level in 14 months on concerns about possible disruptions to Middle East supplies and signs of an increase in U.S. demand for fuel. U.S. benchmark oil gained $1.64 to $101.24, its highest close since May 3, 2012. Brent crude, which is used to price oil used by many U.S. refineries to make gasoline, rose $1.76 to finish at $105.76. Two events propelled the price of oil above $100 a barrel for the first time since the middle of September: unrest in Egypt, and a big drop in U.S. oil supplies. Traders were worried that political upheaval in Egypt could slow the flow of oil from the Middle East to world markets. Embattled Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi vowed not to give in to protesters’ demands for his resignation. But the head of Egypt’s military announced late Wednesday night local time that Morsi will be replaced and new elections will be held. Egypt is not an oil producer but it controls of one of the world’s busiest shipping lanes giving it a crucial role in maintaining global energy supplies. The Middle East accounts for about a quarter of the world’s crude oil output, or 23 million barrels per day. About 2 million barrels of that, or 2.2 percent of world demand, are transported daily through the Suez

Canal, which links the Mediterranean with the Red Sea. Much of that oil is headed to Europe, but a supply drop anywhere in the world leads to higher prices everywhere. “Markets tend to advance sharply on uncertainty and will often price in a worst case scenario. This appears to be the case with the unfolding situation in Egypt,” wrote Jim Ritterbusch, president of energy consultancy Ritterbusch and Associates, in a note to clients. Some analysts suggested market reaction to the political crisis in Egypt was exaggerated. “If there is one thing that the military has control of in Egypt it is the Suez Canal. We therefore do not see a significant risk for free passage on the waterway,” said Olivier Jakob of Petromatrix in Switzerland. In the U.S., the Energy Department reported Wednesday that crude supplies fell by 10.3 million barrels from the previous week, more than three times the drop that analysts had expected. The drop was likely the result of reduced supplies from Canada because of a temporary pipeline shutdown there, as well as increased demand from a BP refinery that restarted in Indiana. Gasoline supplies fell as well, while analysts expected an increase. The drop in oil and gas supplies could be an indication

Traders work in the oil options pit at the New York Mercantile Exchange on Wednesday. Oil climbed above $101 a barrel as the political crisis in Egypt intensified.

that U.S. demand is rising. The rising price of oil could end what has been a streak of 21 days of lower U.S. retail gasoline prices. The average U.S. pump price fell less than a penny Wednesday to $3.48 per gallon. Analysts do not think the spike

in oil prices will lead to sharply higher gasoline prices, though, because U.S. crude supplies remain high and refineries are turning out plenty of gasoline. U.S. commodities markets are closed Thursday for the July Fourth holiday.

In other energy futures trading on Nymex: — Wholesale gasoline rose 6 cents to end at $2.84 per gallon. — Heating oil was up 5 cents to finish at $2.95 per gallon. — Natural gas rose 4 cents to end at $3.69 per 1,000 cubic feet.

US unemployment benefit applications fall

WA S H I N G T O N ( A P ) — The number of Americans applying for unemployment benefits fell 5,000 to a seasonally adjusted 343,000 last week, a sign that employers are adding jobs at modest pace. The less volatile four week average dipped 750 to 345,500, the Labor Department said Wednesday. Weekly applications for unemployment benefits are a proxy for layoffs. The four -week average has fallen 9 percent in the past year. Job growth has been stable. A separate report showed that companies stepped up hiring in June, a hopeful sign ahead of Friday’s employment report for last month.

Payroll provider ADP said businesses added 188,000 jobs in June, up from 134,000 in May and the most since February. Construction firms added 21,000 jobs, a sign the housing recovery is boosting hiring. Small businesses — those with less than 50 employees — added 84,000 jobs. ADP’s survey has frequently diverged from the government’s figures. Still, Jennifer Lee, an economist at BMO Capital Markets, said the report and the low number of unemployment benefits were encouraging. Economists forecast that Friday’s report will show the economy added 165,000 jobs in June. That’s slightly below the 175,000 gain in May,

which was in line with the monthly average over the past two years. The unemployment rate likely stayed at 7.6 percent. Nearly 4.6 million received Americans unemployment benefits in the week that ended June 15, the latest period for which data is available. That’s about the same as in the previous week. The total number of recipients has fallen 22 percent in the past year. More hiring could help the economy grow faster later this year. The economy expanded at only a 1.8 percent annual rate in the January-March quarter. Most analysts think it grew at a similarly tepid annual pace between 1.5 percent and 2 percent in

the April-June period. Recent reports have raised hopes for a str onger second half of the year. A survey by the Institute for Supply Management showed that manufacturing activity expanded in June after shrinking in May. Measures of new orders and production rose. Still, a gauge of hiring fell, indicating that factories cut jobs for a fourth straight month. A separate report from the Commerce Department said U.S. factories fielded more orders for computers, machinery and other goods in May. And a measure of business investment increased for the third straight month. The housing r ecovery

TRIAL DELAY FOR BP NEW ORLEANS (AP) — A federal judge has postponed the trial of a former BP executive charged with concealing information from Congress about the amount of oil that was spewing from the company’s blown-out well in the Gulf of Mexico in 2010. U.S. District Judge Kurt Engelhardt agreed Wednesday to give David Rainey’s attorneys more time for the trial that was scheduled to start on Oct. 14. His new trial date is March 10, 2014. In May, Engelhardt dismissed an obstruction charge that was the backbone of the case against Rainey. But federal prosecutors secured a new indictment against Rainey last month that contains language addressing the judge’s reasons for dismissing the charge.
