Francis security receives ‘positive’ rating
RIO DE JANEIRO (AP) — Even though Pope Francis’ motorcade ended up stalled on a traffic-choked street and swar med by thousands of faithful, Brazilian of ficials said Tuesday they evaluated security for the pontiff’s arrival in Rio as “positive.”

The frenzied crowd surrounded the motorcade Monday afternoon as people reached inside to touch Francis, snap photos with their phones or hand him babies to kiss — scenes that alarmed some onlook-
ers, although the pope himself seemed overjoyed with the raucous welcome and kept his car window down. Francis later moved through the masses in an open-air vehicle. Early Tuesday, Brazilian security forces blamed each other for the lapse, and no one took responsibility for the traffic fiasco, which began when the driver of the pope’s car made a wrong turn. Later though, federal police, who are in charge of most of Francis’ securi-

The agency said a meeting was held with officials from a federal agency overseeing megaevents that Brazil is hosting over the next few years, the highway police who played a role in the motorcade’s planning and the Rio mayor’s office to evaluate the security provided.
“The evaluation was positive, since there was no incident involving the pope or with any of the faithful,” an emailed note read.

WASHINGTON (AP) — House Republicans took a tentative step toward offering citizenship to some unauthorized immigrants Tuesday, but hit an immediate wall of resistance from the White House on down as Democrats said it wasn’t enough. The dismissive reaction to the GOP proposal to offer eventual citizenship to some immigrants brought illegally to the U.S. as children underscored the difficulties of finding any compromise in the Republicanled House on the politically explosive issue of immigration. That left prospects cloudy for one of President Barack Obama’s top second-term priorities. Congress is preparing to break for a monthlong summer recess at the end of next week without action in the full House on any immigration legislation, even after the Senate passed a sweeping bipartisan bill last month to secure the bor-
ders and create a path to citizenship for the 11 million immigrants already in the country illegally. At a hearing of the House Judiciary immigration subcommittee Tuesday on how to deal with immigrants brought here illegally as children, Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., suggested that “we as a nation should allow this group of young people to stay in the U.S. legally.” House Republican leaders have embraced offering citizenship to such immigrants, and Goodlatte is working on a bill with Majority Leader Eric Cantor toward the goal. It is something of a turnaround for Republicans, many of whom in the past have opposed legalizing immigrants brought here as kids. And some Democrats and immigration advocates said it was a welcome development showing the GOP has moved forward See PROPOSAL, Page A3

Baby fever caps royal image turn Britain's Prince William and Kate, Duchess of Cambridge, react as they talk to the media whilst holding the Prince of Cambridge, Tuesday. LONDON (AP) — A crowd cheered, hundreds of cameras clicked and an image of familial per fection was beamed around the world. Prince William, his wife, Kate, and their infant son, the Prince of Cambridge, emerged Tuesday from London’s St. Mary's Hospital to start a new chapter in their lives — capping a remarkable turnaround for a monarchy that had ended the 20th century
at a low point of popularity. The outpouring of public and official enthusiasm — including artillery salutes, marching bands and landmarks illuminated blue for the royal baby boy — showed that Britain’s royal family is back in its subjects’ affections, especially now that it has an adorable infant heir, third in line to
Officials meet to discuss state water issues JILL MCLAUGHLIN RECORD STAFF WRITER
State legislators and water officials will meet today with regional district managers in Clovis to kick off a three-day summit to discuss the impacts of the drought on local agriculture and resources. State Sen. Joseph Cervantes, D-Las Cruces, chairman of the Drought Subcommittee of the Water and Natural Resources Committee,
said hosting the meeting in Clovis was important. “I believe it was important to bring this committee to rural parts of the state and hear from people in Chaves County and other agricultural areas about the problems they are encountering with the current drought conditions,” Cervantes said. “It will give citizens an opportunity to speak with us.” One of the more important issues the committee will discuss today will be
NEW YORK (AP) — Anthony Weiner found himself caught in another sexting scandal Tuesday like the one that destroyed his congressional career, but stood side-by-side with his wife to say he won’t drop out of the race for mayor of New York. “This is entirely behind me,” Weiner said at an evening news conference, hours after the gossip website The Dirty posted Xrated text messages and a crotch shot that it said the congressman for mer exchanged with a woman after he left office. Weiner admitted sending a woman sexually explicit photos and messages and acknowledged the activity took place as recently as
the priority call and agreement held between the Pecos Valley Artesian Conservancy District and Carlsbad Irrigation District, Cervantes said.
In 2003, the CID, the PVACD, the state, the New Mexico Interstate Stream Commission and the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation entered into a settlement to ensure the state met its water delivery obligations to Texas and provide water to Carlsbad in times of shortage.
In April, the CID voted to demand a priority call on the Pecos River but the ongoing drought has complicated the delivery of water and has severely impacted PVACD. Cervantes, who grew up in a farming family and has a background in agriculture business, said it’s time to reevaluate the state agreement. “I think it’s important to evaluate the success, or lack of success, that follows from the agreement

with Carlsbad and Roswell, and the agreement reached to address the water dispute back then,” Cervantes said. “We need to reevaluate the decision we made at that time and whether this is the model we follow in the future or not.”
CID Manager Dudley Jones said the district is in a “fact-finding mode” at this time. The district is in immediate need of relief to supply its 20,000 acres of farmland, though. Rain events have provided some See WATER, Page A3

Obviously, you can’t legislate rain.” Aron Balok, director of PVACD, said more than anything, the meeting will be important for legislators to be able to hear from local constituents about how the drought impacts them. “I don’t foresee going to this meeting and there being a silver bullet,” Balok said. “It’s important we keep talking about it.

We have to make little adjustments across the board. “The major exception to that is, if it rains tomorrow, then we got it whipped,” Balok said. The committee will discuss several issues during the three-day event, including: legislation to address drought management, an update on the Pecos River priority call, the Easter n New Mexico Rural Water Supply project, use of recoverable water, the Right to Farm legislation, Thermal Energy from Forest Biomass and renewable energy portfolio standards, government cooperation in forest watershed and fire management, technology for the recycling and reuse of water, and the future of agriculture in New Mexico. “I think that the fact that we’re gong to be spending three days speaks to the legislators’ commitment at this time of these resources and to these issues,” Cervantes said. “It reflects the legislators’ recognition to provide leadership on these issues.”
William E. Wagner, father of Robert (Mary) J. Wagner, 96, died Thursday, July 18, 2013, at Pine Ridge Assisted Living in Wisconsin Rapids, Wis. Memorial services for William will be held at 8:15 a.m. Thursday, Aug. 1, 2013, at St. Peter’s Catholic Church in Roswell, with burial to follow at the church. Rev. Charlie Martinez will officiate.

since nominating a presidential candidate last year, Mitt Romney, who suggested that people here illegally should “self-deport.” Yet even before the hearing began Democrats dismissed Goodlatte and Cantor's not-yetreleased legislation, saying that any solution that doesn’t offer citizenship to all 11 million immigrants here illegally falls short. Over Twitter, White House senior adviser Dan Pfeif fer slammed “the cruel hypocrisy of the GOP immigration plan: Allow some kids to stay but deport their parents.” That drew an angry response from Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., who chairs the immigration subcommittee. After reading Pfeiffer’s tweet aloud at the hearing, Gowdy labeled Pfeiffer “a demagogic, self-serving, political hack.” Cantor spokesman Rory Cooper also responded to Pfeif fer, asking over Twitter: “If White House opposes ef fort to give children path to staying in only country they know, how

In fact, Democrats and immigration advocates pushed hard in past years for legislation offering citizenship to immigrants brought as youths. The so-called DREAM Act passed the House in 2010 when it was controlled by Democrats, but was blocked by Senate Republicans.
But now, with a comprehensive solution like the one passed by the Senate in sight, Democrats and outside activists say they won't settle for anything less.
“Legalizing only the is not DREAMers enough,” said Rep. Luis Gutierrez, D-Ill. “I cannot imagine for one minute that Republicans, who also honor the sanctity of families, want to legalize the children, but leave the rest of the family vulnerable.”
Some Democrats and outside advocates also contended that Republicans were advancing a politically attractive measure just to give themselves cover to avoid dealing with all the immigrants here illegally.

NKorea halts construction of launch site SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — North Korea has stopped construction work at a site meant to launch bigger and better long-range rockets, a possible sign that Pyongyang is slowing or even halting development of larger rockets, according to a new analysis of recent satellite imagery. The sight of unfinished roads and grass growing from the foundation of a large new rocket assembly building could be welcome news for Washington and others who see Pyongyang’s nuclear and missile work as a threat — though it is unknown if the work stoppage is only temporary. Another unknown is why North Korea about eight months ago stopped construction on the launch pad, rocket assembly building and launch control center at what was intended to be a major new facility at the Tonghae Satellite Launching Ground on the northeast coast, according to analysis provided to The Associated Press by 38

North, the website for the U.S.-Korea Institute at Johns Hopkins School of Advanced Inter national Studies.
But the analysis of May 26 commercial satellite imagery from DigitalGlobe and Astrium provides some possible scenarios about what’s happening.
One theory is that equipment and construction troops sent from the site to help repair widespread rain damage last year may still be at other posts. Another is that North Korea’s leadership has decided that its more modern Sohae rocket launching site on the northwest coast, the one used to launch rockets in April and December 2012, will be sufficient to support large rocket development. But the most intriguing theory from the analysis is that the work stoppage could reflect a decision in Pyongyang to slow or stop building larger rockets.
Deadline on subpoena for care audit passes SANTA FE (AP) — A Monday deadline has come and gone without the state Health Services Department providing State Auditor Hector Balderas with an independent audit that is reportedly critical of mental providers. According to the Santa Fe New Mexican, the deadline applies to a subpoena that Balderas obtained last week from a state District Court judge. State officials say Attorney General Gary King is
trying to work with Balderas’ office to provide Balderas what he needs regarding the audit performed by a Boston company. It reportedly found $36 million in Medicaid overpayments along with allegations of fraud. That led to the freezing of funding for 15 providers. Balderas says Human Services Secretary Sidonie Squier will have to explain to the judge why she didn’t comply with the subpoena.

The president’s take on race issues in America
President Obama rarely misses an opportunity to insert himself into an issue. Last Friday, he appeared in the White House pressroom to comment on the George Zimmerman verdict. The president said he could have been Trayvon Martin. Not likely, given his private schooling and the way he was fast-tracked to success. The president said the history of African-Americans partially explains the way many black people view the case. He spoke of blacks hearing car doors lock as they cross the street and of white women who clutch their purses tightly when a black person enters an elevator. Then he touched on the real problem: “Now, this isn’t to say that the African-American community is naive about the fact that African-American young men ar e dispr oportionately involved in the criminal justice system, that they are dispropor-

tionately both victims and perpetrators of violence. It’s not to make excuses for that fact, although black folks do interpret the reasons for that in a historical context. We understand that some of the violence that takes place in poor black neighborhoods around the country is born out of a very violent past in this country, and that the poverty and dysfunction that we see in those communities can be traced to a very difficult history.” OK, but what about poor people in the same neighborhoods
who don’t engage in violent behavior? What values are they being taught? Don’t they have the same history, but make different choices? It is not news that much poverty in the African-American community stems from broken or never-started families; or that too many black men leave black women to raise children on their own; or that the way “gangsta cultur e” is portrayed in the media does not pr oduce an image that is endearing to white employers; or that public schools in minority neighborhoods are failing to build the foundations necessary for a successful life; or that the abortion rate among black women is four times higher than non-Hispanic whites among 15-19 year -olds, according to the Guttmacher Institute. Abortion, which the president has done nothing to curtail, also devalues AfricanAmerican lives.
Roswell Daily Record
The politics of race plays a r ole. When black people kill each other, or murder a white person, the president usually feels no need to comment (the recent murder of 15-year -old Hadiya Pendleton being a rare exception); Al Sharpton doesn’t march, Jesse Jackson doesn’t call for boycotts, or label Florida an “apartheid state,” as he did following the Zimmerman verdict. Are black lives only worth mentioning when they are extinguished by non-blacks? There are black people who are disgusted by the behavior, clothing, attitude and language of some young black men. On the Washington Post’s website last week, beneath a transcript of the president’s remarks last Friday, a reader posting under the name “Chaquita1” offered a personal story about recently being on a train and watching an African-American woman give the evil eye to a pair of
young African-American males in “gangsta wear” making a commotion. They became belligerent, talking about “the fat lady glaring at them.” The woman arose, Chaquita1 wrote, “and said ‘Trayvon Martin died for nothing. His death did not empower you, it should have been a wake-up call.’ She then r etur ned to her seat, looked straight at me and said, ‘You have white trash. We have black trash.’” Discussions like this should be included in any “conversation about race” the president says he wants, along with how such attitudes and behavior contribute to racial conflict.

Boiling point in filibuster battle
The U.S. government is dysfunctional. But Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid protested too much earlier this month on “Meet the Press” about the U.S. Senate’s 60 percent requirement to pass most legislation and approve presidential nominees. This allows filibusters, or long speeches, to stall bills and nominees. One of the most recent filibusters was in March by Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., against domestic drone use. “Is there anyone out there in the real world that believes that what’s going on in Congress of the United States is good?” Sen. Reid asked. “Our approval rating is lower than North Korea’s.” Hyperbole aside, Sen. Reid is objecting to Republicans, who comprise 46 of the Senate’s 100 members, holding up nominations by President Obama to the federal bureaucracy. He said 15 nominees have been stalled an average of nine months. What he didn’t point out, however, is that Obama has made many dubious appointments that demand lawmakers more closely scrutinize future office holders. Attorney General Eric Holder, one of Obama’s more controversial first-term appointees, has been held in contempt of Congress for refusing to turn over key data in the Fast and Furious gun smuggling scheme. Janet Napolitano, who just resigned as President Obama’s homeland security secretary to head the University of California system, has been obtuse about intrusive pat downs and full-body scans by the Transportation Security Administration. And Lisa Jackson, until February the head of the Environmental Protection Agency, imposed the president’s radical environmentalist agenda through regulatory fiat, circumventing Congress. Already, 15,000 megawatts worth of coal power have been taken offline, with another 37,000 scheduled over the next 10 years. On average, nationally, 500 megawatts powers about 350,000 homes. So, all told, Jackson’s regulatory dictate will affect some 36.4 million homes. Given the way the for mer EPA chief wielded her authority, it’s not unreasonable for Republicans to hold up the nomination of Gina McCarthy, Obama’s choice to succeed Jackson, until they got some assurances that McCarthy’s policies would not be as radical as those of her predecessor. Indeed, Louisiana Sen. David Vitter, top Republican on the Environment and Public Works Committee that reviewed McCarthy’s nomination, announced last week that the president’s EPA nominee had made enough concessions that he would cancel a filibuster threat, according to Politico. The founders did not intend America to be a pure democracy, but to have such non-majoritarian mechanisms as the filibuster to check the excesses of democracy and protect the rights of minorities. The majority usually gets its way in the end, but not by steamrolling the loyal opposition. Guest Editorial The Orange County Register DEAR DOCTOR K: A co-worker came to work with a poison ivy rash. She assured me she’s not contagious. Is that true? D E A R RE A D E R : Your coworker is right: You can’t “catch” poison ivy from coming into contact with her rash. But it’s summer, so let me give you a refresher course about the many plants that can cause a rash and how to take precautions against them. That way you’ll be as safe while gardening in your backyard, biking in a park or hiking in the mountains as you are sitting beside your co-worker in your office. Many plants have defenses to pr otect themselves. Some secrete oils or saps that cause animals and humans to develop
The exploitation of Trayvon Martin Although they may not realize it, some supporters of the dead teenager Trayvon Martin are actually exploiting him, using his death to advance their own personal agendas. That is very disturbing when you think about it. After the acquittal of George Zimmerman, one loon out in San Francisco justified some mob-driven property damage, saying: “We have to grow a new society. A people society. Not one where Wells Fargo, the Federal Reserve, all these big banks. We need a whole new system!” A protester in D.C. said: “We don’t get democracy. We get

allergic reactions. If you touch the plant, the contact triggers an allergic reaction that appears in two to 10 days as a r ed, swollen, itchy, blistering rash. Poison ivy, poison oak and poison sumac are best known for causing the problem. (I’ve put an illustration of these plants on my website, AskDoctorK.com, so

you’ll know what to avoid when you’re outdoors.) If you do encounter one of these plants, the allergic reaction will go away on its own in about 10 days. But you’ll likely be desperate for relief from the burning, itching sensation long before then. My colleague at Harvard Medical School, dermatologist Dr. Kenneth Ar ndt, shared some tips for r elieving symptoms. First, apply cool compresses, then pat your skin dry. Try an over-the-counter hydrocortisone cr eam. If that’s not str ong enough, ask your doctor to prescribe a mor e potent ster oid cream. You’ll have to apply the cream a few times a day until the rash clears up.
got new oxygen.” So, if you believe the fringe, the reason Zimmerman was found not guilty by a jury of six women is that they are racists who want big business to dominate the country. Makes sense to me. And then there are the grievance folks. Talk-radio host Tavis Smiley told ABC News that it is open season on black men in this country. According to Smiley, the Zimmer man verdict is “just another piece of evidence of the incontrovertible contempt that this nation often shows and displays for black men.” Wow.
Of course, it’s better to avoid the rash in the first place. That means protecting yourself when you’re outside. Wear long sleeves and pants, as well as thick work gloves, when gar dening. Be careful about those clothes and gloves. They may have kept plant oils off your skin while you were outdoors, brushing against poison ivy, but those oils remain on clothes and gloves for several days. So if after you come indoors you touch the outside of the unwashed clothes or gloves, you could transfer the oils to your skin and get poison ivy. If you think any part of your body may have come in contact with poisonous plants, wash the ar ea with soap and water as soon as you can. The faster you
At the top, President Barack Obama used the verdict to call for stricter gun control measures. And Attorney General Eric Holder told the nation that Florida’s “Stand Your Ground” law should be repealed. All of this was said in the name of a Florida teenager who died unnecessarily. The truth is that cynical opportunists often use tragedies to their advantage. For me, the death of Martin and the subsequent prosecution of Zimmerman were lessons in confrontation, not

wash, the more effective it will be. If you wash immediately, most of the plant oil will come off. If you wait more than two hours, it’s too late. Don’t forget to always wash your hands, even if you don’t think they touched a plant. Your hands may not have touched the plant, but they could well have touched the part of you that touched the plant. And when you wash your hands, scrub under your fingernails, as that’s a place that oils like to hide. (Dr. Komaroff is a physician and professor at Harvard Medical School.

Grease the wheel before it becomes bigger issue Roswell Daily Record
A couple of weeks ago, I made the comment that if we (local veterans) could solve the four main problem issues I’ve discussed in numerous columns over the past eight years, I would then be able to focus on more positive subjects of veterans’ advocacy. Then I could “get off the backs of our politicians and VA decision-makers” (per their request). It’s not my intention to stay on anyone’s back, but the old axiom “the squeaky wheel gets the grease” still applies to many of today’s veteran problems. Possibly, my “squeaks” over the last three to four years may have just started getting some grease. The veteran issues, as many of you know, are: (1) establish local urgent/emergency medical care, as well as dental, eye and specialty rehabilitation services for area veterans on a local fee-based system; (2) provide ongoing funding for the veterans transportation network here in southeastern New Mexico; (3) create a veterans’ cemetery in Roswell on land donated by the McBride and Willis families and (4) have Congress and the Depart-
ment of Defense pay the earned retirement pension of 100 percent disabled, homebound veterans. The financial support issue for our veterans’ transportation services and the veterans’ cemetery issue have recently shown signs of progress toward resolutions. In my column last week, it was reported that Sen. Tom Udall was able to revive and pass an amendment from a few years ago referred to as the “Vets Ride” bill, providing for annual grants of $50,000 to rural areas needing assistance with their veterans’ transportation programs. These grants, along with the tremendous annual support from our local Elks charity golf tournaments (thanks to Ralph Brown and
our local Elks members) will go a long way to keep our vans rolling behind the strong leadership of Magil Duran and his network drivers. The issue of a local veterans cemetery received good news last week from Gov. Susana Martinez and New Mexico Department of Veterans Services Secretary, Col. Tim Hale. A chink in the federal armor (no new federal VA cemeteries in our area of the Southwest) has slightly given way to some funding for state-supported private cemetery plans, similar to the state VA cemeteries Sen. Mary Landrieu has established in Louisiana (described in two previous Veterans Advocate columns over the last several months). Sen. Landrieu has established four federal VA cemeteries and three state veterans cemeteries during her watch. Roswell Daily Record reporter Jill McLaughlin explained the funding mechanism of this new development last week as she reported Gov. Martinez’s announcement. More updates on this will be forthcoming.

giving a word of caution, but in all fairness, I must. We have been promised many things by the VA (here in the southeast corner of New Mexico), only to have them evaporate before they had even started. Remember Taos and our “chance” for local health care? But, let’s be positive, shall we? The remaining two issues, local health care and denied 100 percent disabled veterans’ retirement pension, have shown no signs, whatsoever, of improvement. The local veterans coalition that has been working on some of these issues since last June was created in response to a very loud “squeak” in a May 2012 Veterans Advocate column where I reported the very loud denial of requests made to all of our local federal congressional delegation by four successive VA secretaries during the past eight years. Denials all the way back to VA Secretary Principi’s promises to local veterans during a meeting on Oct. 15, 2004, arranged by Rep. Steve Pearce, in which those promises were never kept. Each successive VA secretary sent letters of
Pet of the Week
denial for local veterans’ medical services, which I reported in the May 2012 column. Congressman Pearce, subsequent to the column, asked one of his retired head staffers to come to Roswell and get these issues fixed. Several area veterans and city decision-makers met to begin this process in June 2012. The group, known today as the Roswell Veterans Coalition, started work on the local veterans health care issue. Unfortunately, the Albuquerque VA’s published description of medical services (prior to the big VA “pow-wow” in the Roswell Special Events Center this past February) showed absolutely no signs of local veterans health care “positive evolution.” The “squeak” started the process, but as yet the “oil” has missed its mark. However, as reported, two of the four issues show glimmers of hope. If the four issues are eventually resolved, my “bucket list” (shared by many southeastern New Mexico veterans and their families) will be complete. God bless.

anything else. We live in a country where citizens must understand that intense personal interactions can lead to disaster. I can’t tell you how many times I have wanted to confront somebody who was doing something wrong in my presence. But I simply can’t. There are legions of sleazy lawyers lined up to attack the affluent in court. If you have money, these parasites will find a legal way to harm you. Just fighting nuisance suits can cost tens of thousands of dollars. And then there are the unstable folks who will do you physical damage. Road
rage, verbal assaults, threats — you have to walk or drive away. It is far too risky to confront the perpetrator and “work it out.” Of course, sometimes you must stand your ground — but not often. Zimmerman was told by a 9-1-1 operator to stay in his car. He did not. Disaster followed. It didn’t have to happen. Exploiters of the Martin case should be ashamed. For everyone else, there is one huge lesson: Avoid confrontation if you possibly can. No good can come of it.

44 rescued from Gulf rig after natural gas blowout NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Natural gas spewed uncontrolled from a well of the Louisiana coast on Tuesday after a blowout that forced the evacuation of 44 workers aboard a drilling rig, authorities said. No injuries were reported in the midmor ning blowout and there was no fire as of Tuesday evening at the site, about 55 miles off the Louisiana coast in the Gulf of Mexico. Experts from Wild Well Control Inc. were to assess the well site overnight and develop a plan to shut down the flow of gas, said Jim Noe, executive vice president of Hercules Of fshore Inc, owner of the drilling rig where the blowout occurred. Noe stressed that gas, not oil, was flowing from the well. He said it’s an important distinction because gas wells in relatively shallow areas — this one was in 154 feet of water — sometimes tend to clog with sand, effectively snuffing themselves out. “That is a distinct possibility at this point,” he said. “But until we have our Wild Well Control personnel on the rig, we won’t know much more.” The Coast Guard and the Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement, or BSEE, kept state

Tonight: Keep it light and easy. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) Dealing with someone who is as stubborn as you are could be difficult. You will stand your ground, but so will he or she.

Still, the Coast Guard kept nautical traffic out of an area within 500 meters of the site, where the spewing gas posed a fire hazard. The Federal Aviation Administration restricted aircraft up to 2,000 feet above the area. BSEE said a firefighting vessel with water and foam capabilities would reach the scene by Tuesday night. BSEE said inspectors flying over the site soon after the blowout saw a light sheen covering an area about a half-mile by 50 feet. However, it was dissipating quickly. Earlier this month, a gas well flowed for several days before being sealed off the Louisiana coast. In 2010, an oil rig exploded off the state’s coast, leading to a blowout that spewed millions of gallons of oil into the Gulf in the worst offshore disaster in the United States. Coastal of ficials stressed that Tuesday’s blowout was nothing of that magnitude. Chris Roberts, a mem-

ber of the Jef ferson Parish Council in south Louisiana, said the travel restrictions might pose an inconvenience for participants in an upcoming deep sea fishing tournament. “It could change some plans as to where some people plan to fish,” he said. Tuesday’s blowout occurred near an unmanned offshore gas platfor m that was not currently producing natural gas, said Eileen Angelico, spokeswoman for the bureau. The workers were aboard a portable drilling rig known as a jackup rig, owned by Hercules, which was a contractor for exploration and production company Walter Oil & Gas Corp. Walter Oil & Gas reported to the BSEE that the rig was completing a “sidetrack well” — a means of re-entering the original well bore, Angelico said. The purpose of the sidetrack well in this instance was not immediately clear. A spokesman for the corporation didn’t have the infor mation Tuesday night. Industry websites say sidetrack wells are sometimes drilled to remedy a problem with the existing well bore.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Be discreet in handling a personal matter. Return calls, and schedule a meeting if possible.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) Use the morning to finish extra work, but try not to get too caught up in a project. You might be concerned about a financial matter, as you can’t seem to get enough clarity. Don’t take a risk if a money offer feels unusually dicey. Tonight: Work within your budget, and set limits. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) Let your personality melt barriers, especially with someone at a distance. An ongoing problem needs to come to a conclusion, so have a long-overdue discussion. Be open to feedback, even if you feel as though the person has a rigid point of view. Tonight: A favorite pastime.

Hall of fame boxer Griffith dies at 75 Wednesday, July 24, 2013 Phone: 575-622-7710, ext. 304
Roswell Daily Record
DAVE SKRETTA AP SPORTS WRITER
Inside the smaller theater at Madison Square Garden about five years ago, shortly before a world title fight, Emile Griffith was introduced one more time to the crowd. He rose shakily from his seat, waved ever so briefly and then sat down. The applause kept going. Revered in retirement perhaps more than during his fighting days, Griffith died Tuesday at 75 after a long battle with pugilistic dementia. The first fighter to be crowned world champion from the U.S. Virgin Islands, Griffith required full-time care late in life and died at an extended care facility in Hempstead, N.Y. “Emile was a gifted athlete and truly a great boxer,” Hall of Fame director Ed Brophy said. “Outside the ring he was as great a gentle-
itor to the boxing clubs around New York City, and made the pilgrimage most years to the sport’s Hall of Fame in Canastota, N.Y. “He always had time for boxing fans when visiting the hall on an annual basis,” Brophy said, “and was one of the most popular boxers to return year after year.” That outpouring of love that he received late in life stood in stark contrast to the way he was received after March 24, 1962, when he fought Paret before a national TV audience at the Garden. Griffith knocked out his bitter rival in the 12th round to regain his own welterweight title, and Paret went into a coma and died from his injuries 10 days later. Sports Illustrated reported in 2005 that Griffith may have been fueled by an anti-gay slur direct-
man as he was a fighter.” An elegant fighter with a quick jab, Griffith’s brilliant career was overshadowed by the fatal beating he gave Benny “The Kid” Paret in a 1962 title bout. The outcome darkened the world of boxing, even prompting some network television stations to stop showing live fights. It also cast him as a pariah to many inside and outside the sport. He went on to have a successful career after that fatal fight, but Griffith acknowledged later in life that he was never the same boxer. He would fight merely to win, piling up the kind of decisions that are praised by purists but usually jeered by fans hoping for a knockout. Griffith often attended fights in his later years, especially at the Garden, where he headlined 23 times. He was also a frequent vis-

BOSTON (AP) — Jon Lester matched his season high with eight strikeouts and overcame homers by Wil Myers and Evan Longoria as the Boston Red Sox remained in first place with a 6-2 win over the Tampa Bay Rays on Tuesday night. The Red Sox moved 1 1/2 games ahead of the Rays in the AL East and stayed atop the division for the 58th consecutive day. The loss ended the Rays’ six-game winning streak and was just their third in 21 games, a surge that began when they were in fourth place, trailing the Red Sox by seven games. Boston is 3-4 since its four-game winning streak. Lester (9-6) gave up two runs and seven hits with no walks in 6 1/3 innings. He is 3-6 with a 5.97 ERA since starting the season 6-0 with a 2.72 ERA. Four Red Sox pitchers com-
bined for 13 strikeouts. Roberto Hernandez (511) allowed three runs in five innings and tied R.A. Dickey for the secondmost losses in the AL. But it was the 28th time in Tampa Bay’s last 31 games that its starter gave up three runs or fewer. Boston led 3-2, then scored three runs in the eighth on an RBI single by Stephen Drew and a tworun single by Jose Iglesias. Myers’ fifth homer of the season on the first pitch of the second inning gave the Rays a 1-0 lead. The Red Sox tied it in the bottom half on a run-scoring single by Mike Carp. They went ahead 2-1 in the third on a double steal. Shane Victorino led off with a double and went to third on a flyout by Daniel Nava. Dustin Pedroia was hit by a pitch, then stole second as

Will 5 power conferences break away from FBS? See SOX, Page B2
NEW YORK (AP) — The five power conferences are trying to redefine what it takes to operate a Division I college athletic program, with their commissioners calling out the NCAA at media days around the country. Big 12 Commissioner Bob Bowlsby and fellow commissioners Mike Slive of the Southeastern Conference and John Swofford of the Atlantic Coast Conference have taken turns critiquing the NCAA over the last week, and it’s likely Jim Delany of the Big Ten and Larry Scott of the Pac-12 will follow suit in the coming days. The schools in the most powerful and wealthy leagues want more freedom to be able to run their programs the way they want, without the less powerful schools standing in the way. Does this mean the end of the NCAA as we know it is near? Or will there be a new division of college football — Division 4 as Bowlsby calls it? Not necessarily.

reshaping it in a way where some smaller schools choose to leave. The lightning rod issue at the heart of this debate has been the proposed stipend to college athletes that would add about $2,000 to an athletic scholarship to cover the full cost of attendance. All the commissioners from the major conferences have pushed for it, but it could not be passed because smaller schools said they couldn’t afford it. So, a possible solution for the powerful, wealthy schools is to set up a level of football at which all the participating schools give players stipends — and let the smaller schools play each other. The programs that would be most affected by the big five isolating itself from the rest of college sports would be from the lesser leagues in college football’s top tier: The Mountain West, the American Athletic Con-
Oklahoma football coach Bob Stoops comments on his team during the Big 12 Conference Football Media Days Tuesday. Former Big 12 Commissioner Dan Beebe says he thinks Atlantic Coast Conference, Big Ten, Big 12, Pac-12 and Southeastern Conference can get the
power to gover n themselves without cutting of f all ties to schools from the less powerful and wealthy FBS conferences. And NCAA expert John
Infante, who writes the ByLaw Blog at athleticscholarship.com, says the best solution for the schools in those conferences is not leaving Division I, but

Over the years, in books and interviews, Griffith described himself at various times as straight, gay and bisexual. “People spit at me in the street,” Griffith told The Associated Press in 1993, recalling the days after Paret’s death. “We stayed in a hotel. Every time there was a knock on the door, I would run into the next room. I was so scared.” The Paret fight left a cloud over the sport for many years.

Jets place WR Santonio Holmes on PUP list
NEW YORK (AP) — The New York Jets have placed wide receiver Santonio Holmes on the active-physically unable to perform list, an expected move as he recovers from a serious foot injury that sidelined him most of last season. Holmes recently said he wasn’t sure if he’d be healthy enough to start participating when the Jets begin training camp practices on Friday. The wide receiver added that he hoped to be ready for the start of the regular season. Holmes injured his left foot last October and needed two operations to repair it. He has yet to put full weight on the foot while working out on a gravity-assisted treadmill.

OXNARD, Calif. (AP) — Dallas Cowboys defensive end Anthony Spencer is having arthroscopic surgery on his left knee and is likely to miss the rest of training camp. Spencer said he will have surgery Thursday in Dallas and expects to miss three weeks, which puts his return about the same time the Cowboys break camp before their third preseason game at Arizona. “I have a lot of time,” Spencer said Tuesday. “I feel like I will definitely be ready before the season gets here.” Spencer hyperextended the knee in offseason workouts and said he aggravated the injury in the conditioning test before training camp. He has described the injury as a bone bruise and said the surgery was to clean up some of the tissue around the knee. “We don’t think it’s a very severe thing,” coach Jason Garrett said. “We thought get-

Rockefeller created a commission to investigate the bout and the sport. The referee that night, Ruby Goldstein, never worked another fight. The fight became the basis for the 2005 documentary “Ring of Fire: The Emile Griffith Story.” One of the final scenes shows Griffith embracing Paret’s son. “I was never the same fighter after that. After that fight, I did enough to win. I would use my jab all the time. I never wanted to hurt the other guy,” Griffith said. “I would have quit, but I didn’t know how to do anything else but fight.” And fight he could. Known for his overwhelming speed and slick style — certainly not his punching power — Griffith was a prodigy from the
moment he stepped in Hall of Fame trainer Gil Clancy’s gym in Queens. Griffith had been working in a hat factory when, as the story goes, he took off his shirt on a hot day and the factory owner noticed his muscles. Under the watchful eye of Clancy, Griffith blossomed into a New York Golden Gloves champion and eventually turned professional. He easily defeated the likes of Florentino Fernandez and Luis Rodriguez during an era when it was common to fight every couple of weeks. He quickly earned a title shot against Paret in 1961, winning the welterweight belt with a knockout in the 13th round. Griffith would lose it to Paret in a rematch five months later. After winning back the title

ference (formerly the Big East), Conference USA, the Sun Belt and the MidAmerican Conference — aka the group of five. Those schools still want to compete against the big five on the field, cash in on the monster pay days that usually come with playing those games and capitalize on the attention that comes when they occasionally win one. The FBS conferences will share, though not equally, the $5.6 billion ESPN is set to pay over 12 years for broadcast rights to College Football Playoff. The big five conferences will take 75 percent of that money, but the 25 percent left over
during their controversial third fight — many believe Paret never should have been allowed in the ring after a brutal loss to Gene Fullmer three months earlier — Griffith would eventually move up to middleweight. He knocked down Dick Tiger for the first time in his career and claimed the title with a narrow but unanimous decision. Griffith would go on to lose twice during a thrilling trilogy with Nino Benvenuti, his lone victory coming at Shea Stadium in 1967, and lost two bouts against the great middleweight Carlos Monzon. Griffith would finally retire in 1977 after losing his last three fights. He was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1990 with a record of 85-24-2 and 23 knockouts.
Broncos release linebacker Joe Mays
ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — The Denver Broncos are saving $3.5 million with the release of linebacker Joe Mays, who lost his starting job and then broke his left leg last season. Not long after signing for $12 million over three years, Mays was suspended a game and docked $50,000 for an illegal hit on Houston’s Matt Schaub. He then lost his middle linebacker job following a poor performance by the defense in a loss at New England. That relegated Mays to special teams, and he was blocking on a punt return Oct. 28 when a Saints player inadvertently legwhipped him, fracturing his fibula just above his left ankle, ending his season. Although healthy again, Mays was the odd man out with Nate Irving, Stewart Bradley and Steven Johnson vying for the job this summer.
Hillis signs 1-year deal with Buccaneers
TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have signed running back Peyton Hillis to a one-year contract. Hillis is a sixth-year pro who finished sixth in the NFL in total yards from scrimmage in 2010, when he became the first player in Cleveland Browns history to rush for 1,000 yards, catch 50 passes and score at least 10 touchdowns in a season. The 27-year-old Hillis appeared in 65 career games, rushing for 2,470 yards and scoring 21 TDs on the ground. He has 111 career receptions for 867 yards and three touchdowns. Last year Hillis played for Kansas City Chiefs, rushing for 309 yards and 1 TD. To make room on the roster Tuesday, the Bucs waived running back Matt Brown.
Cardinals sign former Notre Dame WR Toma
TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) — The Arizona Cardinals have signed receiver Robby Toma, and released tight end Kyle Auffray and running back William Powell. Arizona also waved receiver Michael Rios with a non-football injury. Toma is a rookie free agent from Notre Dame, where he caught 24 passes for 252 yards in 13 games as a senior last year. Powell, in his second year out of Kansas State, ran for 217 yards and caught 19 passes for 132 yards last season.

Griffith would go on to train several champions over the years, including Wilfred Benitez and Juan Laporte, among the most popular boxers in Puerto Rican history. His humor and generosity buoyed those close to him as his health deteriorated in later years. He would regale fans young and old with tales of his fights, even though details often became hazy, the result of the many blows during his career. Grif fith had four sisters — Eleanor, Gloria, Karen and Joyce — and three brothers — Franklin, Guillermo and Tony. He is also survived by his adopted son, Luis Griffith. Funeral arrangements are pending.
for the other five to split still represents a big raise from what they were making under the BCS. Presumably, the power conferences would make even more breaking away. But it might not be that easy. “What happens when these 70 schools break away and form Division 4? Might happen. I don’t think it’s going to happen,” Mountain West Conference Commissioner Craig Thompson told reporters at his league’s football media day in Las Vegas. MAC Commissioner John Steinbrecher said at media day in Detroit: “The question is, can we come to agreement on a set of rules that allows us to coexist amicably? I tend to believe we can.”
Beebe thinks so, too. He said the big five will ultimately be allowed to allocate their enor mous resources toward providing more money for studentathletes and they will be able to increase academic standards the way they see fit. “It’s going to be done but the competition is going to go on, on the court and field,” said Beebe, who now heads a sports consulting firm called the Dan Beebe Group. Infante said if the big five gets its way, it could lead to a culling of Division I, which currently includes 349 schools, with some of the 125 FBS schools dropping down to FCS, major college football’s second tier. Infante added the big
five creating a new division of college athletics might not be so well-received by the lower -revenue members of their own leagues, schools such as Iowa State and Mississippi State that would become the new have-nots of major college football. Also, the potential backlash from FBS schools in the group of five who were no longer considered major college football schools could also blunt movement toward the big five separating from the rest of Division I. “You’re going to have governors and attorneys general in states that are going to be ticked off,” he said. “Not sure (the big five conferences) are going to want to invite more antitrust lawsuits.”

ting it cleaned up sooner rather than later was better for him and for our team.” The 29-year-old Spencer had a similar procedure in late August in 2008 but missed only one regular-season game. Dallas breaks camp Aug. 16. He was the leading tackler last season and finished a half-sack behind DeMarcus Ware with a career-high 11.

Have you been watching the clouds this summer? In some areas of the country, people use clouds to help predict threatening weather. But clouds can also be beautiful and fun to study. Clouds play an important part in our environment, affecting temperatures and carrying moisture that will fall to Earth. They can be dangerous when they form storms such as tornadoes.
What is a cloud? A cloud is a clump of tiny water droplets or ice crystals floating in the atmosphere. The atmosphere is a layer of gases (such as oxygen) that surrounds the Earth. Water vapor, which is water in gas form, is also in the atmosphere.
How clouds form When water vapor rises in the atmosphere, it grows colder, which causes it to turn into liquid water. Or if it is really cold, the vapor turns into ice crystals. The drops of water and ice crystals come together to make cloud droplets. When water is in the form of gas, it is invisible. When it turns to liquid or ice, we can see it. We see clouds.
A tornado is a violently rotating column of air that comes down from a thunderstorm toward the ground. This is a 1999 tornado in Oklahoma City, where more deadly tornadoes touched down this year. Watching the clouds can help you be aware of bad weather on the way.
Clouds bring moisture
After clouds form, the water droplets either evaporate, or turn back into gas, or come together. When enough join together, they form a raindrop or a snowflake.
When we look up, clouds usually look white. But if they are filled with a lot of water, they block out so much sunlight that they look gray to us. Clouds with a greenish color have hail within them. Strong storms, including tornadoes, can come out of this type of cloud.
Clouds affect temperature At night during winter, clouds can act as a blanket over the Earth, keeping some of the sunâ€™s warmth from escaping back into space. Cloudy winter nights may be as much as 15 degrees warmer than nights that are clear.
When the raindrops or snowflakes grow big enough, they fall to Earth.
