12 votes in House save NSA program

WASHINGTON (AP) — The House narrowly rejected a challenge to the National Security Agency’s secret collection of hundreds of millions of Americans’ phone records Wednesday night after a fierce debate pitting privacy rights against the government’s efforts to thwart terrorism.



The vote was 217-205 on an issue that created unusual political coalitions in Washington, with libertarian-leaning conserva-


tives and liberal Democrats pressing for the change against the Obama administration, the Republican establishment and Congress’ national security experts.

The showdown vote marked the first chance for lawmakers to take a stand on the secret surveillance program since former NSA systems analyst Edward Snowden leaked classified documents last month that spelled out the monumental scope of the gover n-

ment’s activities.

Backing the NSA program were 134 Republicans and 83 Democrats, including House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, who typically does not vote, and Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi. Rejecting the administration’s last-minute pleas to spare the surveillance operation were 94 Republicans and 111 Democrats.

It is unlikely to be the final word on government intrusion to defend the

nation and Americans’ civil liberties.

“Have 12 years gone by and our memories faded so badly that we forgot what happened on Sept. 11?” Rep. Mike Rogers, R-Mich., chair man of the Intelligence Committee, said in pleading with his colleagues to back the program during House debate.

Republican Rep. Justin Amash of Michigan, chief sponsor of the repeal effort, said his aim was to end the indiscriminate collection of

Americans’ phone records. His measure, offered as an addition to a $598.3 billion defense spending bill for 2014, would have canceled the statutory authority for the NSA program, ending the agency’s ability to collect phone records and metadata under the USA Patriot Act unless it identified an individual under investigation. The House later voted to pass the overall defense

SANTA FE (AP) — New Mexico has received a nearly $19 million federal grant to market its health insurance exchange to uninsured individuals and businesses and to educate them about their options in the state’s online marketplace.

The exchange, which is envisioned as a one-stop, online shopping center for insurance, expects to enroll more than 80,000 uninsured New Mexicans in insurance plans next year and up to 211,000 people

by 2020. However, the exchange faces rapidly approaching deadlines under federal law to begin enrollment in October and to be fully operating in January. Because of a lack of time to fully implement its computer system, New Mexico plans to initially rely on a federally operated exchange to enroll individuals in health care insurance offered by private companies but use the state-run system for businesses. A key to the exchange’s

Pope urges faithful to shun materialism APARECIDA, Brazil (AP) — Pope Francis made an emotional plea Wednesday for Roman Catholics to shun materialism in the first public Mass of his initial international trip as pontiff, then met with drug addicts and denounced the “dealers of death” who fuel their suffering. On his first full day of activities in Brazil, Francis traveled from one of the most important shrines in Latin America, Our Lady of Aparecida, to what he called a “shrine of human suffering” — a hospital in Rio de Janeiro that treats substance abusers. Both encounters had a common theme that the humble pope has stressed during his young papacy: a denunciation of the “ephemeral idols” of money and power and a need for the Catholic Church to focus on the poor and outcasts of society. Francis started his day

traveling to Aparecida, where thousands packed into the huge Basilica of the Shrine of Our Lady of Aparecida in an agricultural region of verdant fields between Rio and Sao Paolo. Tens of thousands more braved a cold rain outside to catch a glimpse of the first pope from the Americas returning to a shrine of great meaning to the continent and to Francis himself. Before the Mass, Francis stood in silent prayer in front of the 15-inch statue of the Virgin of Aparecida, the “Black Mary,” his eyes tearing up as he breathed heavily. He later carried a replica of it in his arms, visibly moved at the gift he had been given. Francis has entrusted his papacy to the Virgin Mary and places great importance in devotion to Mary.

Senate panel shows deep divisions on Guantanamo WASHINGTON (AP) — Deep divisions among members of a Senate panel over whether to close the U.S. detention center at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, underscore the uphill battle President Barack Obama faces in fulfilling a 5-yearold promise to shutter the facility. Opening the first Senate hearing on closing Guantanamo since 2009, Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., said Wednesday that it’s time to end a “sad chapter” in American history and close Guantanamo. The Obama administration can do more to begin closing the prison, according to Durbin, but he said the blame for the failure to shutter the much-maligned

facility rests primarily with Congress. Restrictions enacted by Congress on the transfer of terror suspects at Guantanamo — including a ban on moving detainees to the U.S. - have undercut President Barack Obama’s authority and made it nearly impossible to close the facility, he said. “It’s time to lift these restrictions and move forward with shutting down Guantanamo prison,” said Durbin, the Senate’s No. 2 Democrat and chairman of the Senate Judiciary subcommittee on the Constitution, civil rights and human rights. “We can transfer most of the detainees to foreign countries,” he said. “And

we can bring the others to the United States, where they can be tried in federal court or held under the law of war until the end of hostilities.” But Durbin’s pitch ran into immediate resistance from Sen. Ted Cruz, RTexas, the panel’s top Republican. Cruz said if the facility is shut down there will be no place to send dangerous terror suspects. He criticized the Obama administration for its “rosy assessment” of how much damage has been done to al-Qaida. That has led to the belief that “we can now take a holiday from the long difficult task of combating radical Islamic terrorism,” Cruz said.

The White House position “seems to be to continue apologizing for the existence of Guantanamo, to continue apologizing for our detaining terrorists and standing up to defend ourselves, but to do nothing affirmative to address the problem,” he said.

two months ago seeking to regain control of the state from the Knights Templar, just as his predecessor periodically deployed forces to Michoacan, which is Calderon’s home state. While residents initially cheered the latest arrival and some recently formed self-defense groups agreed to put down their arms, the calm was short-lived. The cartel’s deep local roots and proven capacity for violence could make Michoacan the graveyard of Pena Nieto’s pledge to reduce drug violence. “They are challenging the Mexican state on an equal footing,” said Edgardo Buscaglia, a senior scholar at Columbia University who studies organized crime in Latin America, noting that in many areas of Michoacan the Knights Templar gang is the de-facto law. “You have state vacuums in Mexico that are not covered by any kind of institutional framework ... and the cartels are moving in to capture pieces of the state.”

Roswell’s Most Wanted

Ishmael Jerome Duran, 39, is charged with violation of the sex offender registration and notification act. A warrant was issued for failure to appear on Tuesday. His last known address is 1011 Caminisito. Duran is described as 5 feet 5 inches tall, 185 lbs., with brown hair and eyes. Anyone who has information or knows Duran’s whereabouts is urged to contact Crime Stoppers, 888-594-TIPS (8477).

Something Wicked...

Even should the Democratic-controlled Senate vote to close Guantanamo, the GOP-led House of Representatives wants the prison kept open. The House voted 247 to 175 Tuesday to reject an amendment that would have allowed Obama to begin closing the facility.

Obama has stepped up the pressure to close the prison, driven in part by his revised counterterrorism strategy and the stain of the government forcefeeding Guantanamo prisoners on hunger strikes to prevent them from starving to death.

Mexico’s drug war boils over again

MEXICO CITY (AP) — Mexico’s rough western state of Michoacan, producer of avocados and waves of migrants, is proving just as painful a thorn in the side of President Enrique Pena Nieto as it was for his predecessor, Felipe Calderon. Coming off a stunning success with the capture of Zetas cartel leader Miguel Angel Trevino Morales, Pena Nieto almost immediately was plunged back into the bloody reality of Mexico’s drug war this week as gunmen believed to be working for the Knights Templar cartel staged a coordinated series of ambushes on federal police convoys Tuesday. Attacks continued on Wednesday, wounding at least five federal police officers. The death toll from Tuesday’s clashes stood at 20 gunmen and two federal police. About 15 people were injured in the attacks, in which gunmen hijacked trucks and buses to block highways. Pena Nieto sent thousands of troops and federal police to the area

Roswell Daily Record

The government has defended its plan to restore order, even though officials have never made very clear what that plan is.

“We know that for certain we are on the right path to regaining public safety, even though it’s quite clear that won’t be easy,” Michoacan state Gov. Jesus Reyna said after Tuesday’s attacks. So far the government doesn’t seem to have a dif ferent strategy than Calderon’s for the complex, bloody, multi-sided battle in Michoacan that pits the pseudo-religious Knights Templar against police, vigilante groups and the rival New Generation Jalisco cartel. New Generation, which authorities say is aligned with some vigilante groups, is looking to take over Michoacan by casting itself as a cartel interested only in moving drugs and criticizing the Knights Templar for their kidnappings and extortions of everyday people.

lacked. “For stroke care, you really have to see the patient,” said Yonas, who is also a stroke specialist. The new system allows the off-site specialist to talk directly to patients in emergency rooms anywhere in the state and view patient films and charts. Nearly five years ago, UNM departments of neurosurgery and neurology started using telemedicine technology that allowed remote hospitals to send high resolution MRI and CT scans to the university through a secure imaging capture system. The system has now evolved to include the in-room, real-time audiovisual technology. The goal is for the UNM program to be present in every emergency room across the state, Yonas said. The technology, developed by an Albuquerque company, is relatively inexpensive. “It has taken away this barrier of cost that’s been out there in the past,” Yonas said. The in-room consultations will serve

many purposes. Doctors can immediately get support from UNM specialists with patients who have suf fered brain injuries in car accidents, blocked arteries, strokes, hemorrhages or other issues. Rural patients are often flown to Albuquerque for immediate specialist care, costing sometimes as much as $30,000. But cases have shown that nearly 40 percent of the patients were not in need of emergency treatment and could have remained at a local hospital. “Should they be moved? Should they stay in the community? You want to know you’ve made the decision to move them for the right reason,” Yonas said. “Now you can get a good consultation in the beginning.” If the patient needs to be transported, the trip can be expedited more quickly and care can start at the rural hospital before the trip. “So, better information leads to better decision-making, better triage,” Yonas said. The specialist consultation may also reassure patients, he said. “It’s just like you’re sitting in a room talking to them,” Yonas said. “Even the patients feel more confident. They feel like they’ve seen the doctor.”

Wounded Warrior Project’s mission is to “honor and empower” those wounded, physically or mentally, while serving in the military. When people find out what Roscoe is riding for, the best of humanity usually shows itself. He has experienced little kindnesses along the way, from donated gear to paid bills at restaurants and even an occasional hotel room. “A guy in Florida paid for a hotel room for me … $100 for a hotel room! I said ‘No!’ but he did,” Roscoe said. “And I ended up sleeping on the floor. Because I couldn’t sleep in a bed.” He had spent so much time sleeping on the ground that a bed felt foreign. He started his journey in April 2012, but had a breakdown in Oklahoma. So he spent four months there, doing odd jobs and volunteering while he waited for the needed part. But through mishaps, he continues to


The unlikely political coalitions were on full display during a spirited but brief House debate. “Let us not deal in false narratives. Let’s deal in facts that will keep Americans safe,” said Rep. Michele Bachmann, RMinn., a member of the Intelligence committee who implored her colleagues to back a program that she argued was vital in combatting terrorism. But Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner, R-Wis., a senior member of the Judiciary Committee who helped write the Patriot Act, insisted “the time has

come” to stop the collection of phone records that goes far beyond what he envisioned. Several Republicans acknowledged the difficulty in balancing civil liberties against national security, but expressed suspicion about the Obama administration’s implementation of the NSA programs — and anger at Director of National Intelligence James Clapper. “Right now the balancing is being done by people we do not know. People who lied to this body,” said Rep. Mick Mulvaney, R-S.C.

to implement outreach programs and provide in-person assistance to those seeking health insurance through the exchange. Jason Sandel, vice chairman of the exchange’s 13-member governing board, said New Mexico faces challenges serving people in rural areas that lack Internet service and dealing with uninsured people who aren’t computer savvy. “What I continue to hear is that it’s incumbent upon the exchange to ensure that we have boots on the ground in rural communities across the state in a culturally sensitive kind of way. So if we’re going into a Native American community we need to be speaking with and through Native Americans and telling Native American stories and why it’s important for Native Americans to access health insurance,” Sandel said. “And I think that effort is going to have to be expanded over what was originally conceptualized,” he said. “And frankly putting together that type of an effort in the very short amount of time that we have to put it together is darn near an impossibility.” The state had requested a $20 million grant from the federal government for promoting the exchange and its insur-

Thursday, July 25, 2013 arrived in a closed car at the simple white and yellow St. Francis of Assisi hospital — named for Francis’ namesake, the 13th-century friar who renounced a wealthy, dissolute lifestyle to embrace a life of poverty and simplicity. The pope bounded out of the car into a cold rain, not waiting for an umbrella, and greeted a group of people in wheelchairs and well-wishers.

Before the pope spoke, former drug addicts stood up and told their stories — and received an embrace fr om the pope who listened intently.

The pope then blasted the “dealers of death” who sell drugs and said that the “scourge of drug-trafficking, that favors violence and sows the seeds of suf fering and death, requires of society as a whole an act of courage.”

People ask him why he rides a bicycle. “Why don’t you get a motorcycle?” he is asked.

“Well, I could do that, but just think: I haven’t had to stop for gas yet,” he replies to such questions. “And I would get fat and lazy.” Riding from Portales to Roswell alone he lost 4,100 calories. So pasta is a constant in his diet plan, as well as fresh fruit. “I’d put a monkey to shame eating bananas,” he laughed.

Showers are few and far in between. He rides through intense heat and storms. “I’ve gained a lot of pain,” he said, referring to his aching back. And he breezes through shoes like none other. But overall, it’s been an experience, he said. And pointing to his Wounded Warriors hat, he said, “It’s not about me, it’s about them.”

ance options to New Mexicans. However, $18.6 million was approved earlier this month because of the government’s mandatory, across-the-board spending cuts, according to the state Human Services Department.

Under a preliminary budget prepared for the grant request, the exchange expected to spend about $13 million for marketing and education, including about $6 million for local events in partnership with counties, schools, universities, community-organizations, business and religious groups. Of that $13 million, $1 million was for outreach for Native Americans, such as efforts in Navajo Nation chapter houses, and $4 million was for advertising on television, radio, billboards and social media marketing.

The exchange budgeted another $6 million to contract with two organizations to implement the in-person assistance programs. Those vendors are expected to subcontract with community-based groups to provide the “navigators” and “assisters” — as they are known under the Affordable Care Act — to guide the uninsured through the insurance enrollment process.

“Our goal is enroll 84,000 in the first year and our efforts have to reflect that goal,” Sandel said. “We’re a little bit behind the eight ball is the way I would put it by way of time.”

Udall critical of Republican use of the filibuster

Congressional Republicans show all the signs of an unhappy lot. The huffing and puffing, the chips on shoulders, pouting and hissy fits, all these and more bespeak a collection of men and women loath to do what they were sent to Washington to do. Better tantrums and filibusters, it would seem, than the difficult tasks of tending to the people’s business. It must be maddening to work with people like that, especially for anyone interested in getting their work done. New Mexico Democratic Sen. Tom Udall spoke to that frustration last week on the Senate floor when he said, “New Mexicans want a government that works. The American people want a government that works. And they’re tired of waiting.” Who can blame them? The Republican reactionaries who control the U.S. House of Representa-





tives sit idly by as those automatic budget cuts, aka, “sequestration,” grind mercilessly down upon the nation. We’re months into it now and that which passes oxymoronically for “leadership” in the House majority party seems not to care one whit, without so much as pretending to dither. Because the House can’t pass a budget, New Mexico is poised to lose public defenders, thanks to those automatic budget cuts.

gearing up for the fall semester, but low-income students stand to lose federal assistance and workstudy programs to help defray the costs of education, even as interests on student loans skyrocket. It’s disgraceful. Two-thirds of the state’s U.S. House delegation would like to see their colleagues knuckle down and deal with the crisis. The other onethird is part of the problem. But in the Senate last week, cantankerous Republicans got something approximating their just desserts. From the start of this session of Congress, Senate Republicans have used the filibuster to block confirmation of a whole range of President Obama’s nominees for key administration positions. In January, at the beginning of this Congress, many Democratic senators, including Udall, mounted a drive to reform the current filibuster rule by requiring a senator who undertakes to filibuster actu-

ally to take to the floor and talk. As it now stands a senator can simply announce his or her intention to “filibuster,” whereupon no less than 60 senators must vote to end the phony-baloney talkathon. Reform was dodged, however, when Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell shook hands with Democratic Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and pledged that his fellow Republicans would not abuse the filibuster. That handshake was also phony-baloney. As Sen. Udall recently observed, Republican “obstruction of executive nominees who are ready to be confirmed by the Senate ... is unprecedented.” Come time for the July 4 recess, he continued, “the Senate (had) confirmed only 34 executive nominees. That’s compared to 118 at this point in the (George W) Bush Administration.” Among those blocked from confirmation by GOP filibusters were

the president’s nominee for Secretary of Labor, his nominees to head the EPA, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau and prospective appointees for the National Labor Relations Board. Thus, last week, the reform-thefilibuster drive revived a bit when Reid announced that for certain of those nominations he was prepared to change the filibuster rule to allow Senate confirmation by a simple majority vote. Senate Republicans folded and agreed to let confirmation votes go forward. But Udall welcomed the news with a certain wait-and-see tone. “The Senate’s issues with obstruction go further than just presidential nominees,” he noted. “I’m putting my colleagues on notice: If the Senate goes back to business as usual and endless filibustering, I will be back fighting harder than before for reform.” As well he should. © New Mexico News Services 2013

Trust science, not opinion

Make no mistake: Those who advise against vaccinations to prevent the spread of diseases and illnesses would hurt you and your children and don’t care that they are creating a public health menace. People who listen to bogus science and deny facts from legitimate scientific studies are pushing an agenda that a wise parent should back away from. In fact, backing away is too slow. Turn and run. Public health officials should be commended for offering free pertussis shots in the wake of an increase in the bacterial disease, whooping cough. The highly contagious and dangerous disease has hit levels not seen since 1955. The highest levels in 58 years demand that kind of response. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that there were 41,000 cases of whooping cough last year, compared with 18,719 in 2011. This is not an epidemic, but it is significant enough to worry public health officials. They are encouraging caregivers who may never have been vaccinated or who may have been vaccinated more than 10 years ago to get the shots. This includes doctors, nurses and others who might infect vulnerable populations. But anti-vaccine fear is still abroad in the land. The scare about childhood vaccines being linked to autism was based on bad science to start with. A 1998 study published in the medical journal Lancet, and later retracted, was based on fabricated research by Andrew Wakefield, the lead author. He was stripped of his medical license in Great Britain in 2010. But the myth became enshrined. Among the many overreactions was a petition for Congress to pay parents for injuries to their children through a Vaccine Injury Compensation Program. Courts found no proven link between vaccines and autism, because science has proven there isn’t one. Another effect was that parents began refusing immunizations for their children. Diseases that had been all but dormant for decades, such as measles, mumps and whooping cough, began to rise. It comes down to this: Who would you rather get medical advice from — Jenny McCarthy, former nude model turned childhood development expert, or the Journal of Pediatrics? McCarthy is convinced that her son’s autism is linked to childhood vaccinations. But in April, pediatric researchers published a study that looked at nearly 1,000 children and concluded that exposure to vaccines during the first two years of life was not associated with an increased risk of developing autism. Fueling concern over a link between autism and vaccination was that many childhood vaccines contained an ethyl-mercury preservative, thimerosal. Mercury at high doses can cause harm, but the low levels of ethyl-mercury did not. Despite that scientific finding, the ingredient was taken out of vaccines in the early 2000s in an effort to allay parents’ concerns. Still, there has been an increase in autism and so far, the reasons have not yet been discovered. The CDC estimates that 1 in 88 children have an autism spectrum disorder, and that males are four times as likely as females to have one. This number compares to the 1980s, when autism was reported as 1 in 10,000 children, and the 1990s, when it was diagnosed as 1 in 2,500 children. The Autism Science Foundation cautions that comparing autism rates over the last 30 years is difficult because diagnostic criteria have changed. Indisputable is the fact that more children are being diagnosed as having an autism spectrum disorder than in the past. It’s a mistake to look to phony science to explain the reasons, just because the cause has thus far not been found. The best guess at the moment is that genetics and environmental causes are at fault. So, parents beware — Jenny McCarthy and her son deserve your sympathy. Be concerned for them. Watch her on “The View.” Send her a card. Meanwhile, get your kids to the doctor. Guest Editorial The St. Louis Post-Dispatch

Why is Obama lying on climate change?

President Obama frequently states, as he did on May 29 at a Chicago fundraiser: “We also know that the climate is warming faster than anybody anticipated five or 10 years ago.” His Climate Action Plan is based on this belief. But, is it correct? On Thursday, July 18, the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee held a hearing: “Climate Change: It’s Happening Now” — chaired by Sen. Barbara Boxer, D-Calif. Because Democrats control the Senate, they get more witnesses at a hearing than Republicans. Thursday’s hearing had two panels. Each had

Before I describe them, though, a little background infor mation is in order: Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) is a blood clot that for ms inside deep veins in your legs or pelvis. Part of the clot can break away and move through your bloodstream to your lungs. If the clot blocks one or more of the blood vessels in



three experts (invited by the Democrats) who supported the “alar mist” position on global warming held by most Democrats and two (invited by the Republicans) who could be called “skeptics.” During the Q & A time with the first panel — which included the Democrat’s star: Heidi Cullen of Weather Channel fame, Ranking Member


your lungs, it is called a pulmonary embolism (PE). If the clot is big enough, it can damage the lungs. It can even cause sudden death. We are all at some risk for developing DVT if we do something that slows the blood flow in the veins of our legs. When blood isn’t moving, it tends to clot. One of the things that keep blood moving

Sen. David Vitter, R-La., asked: “Can any witnesses say they agree with Obama’s statement that warming has accelerated during the past 10 years?” After an awkward silence, Cullen tried to change the subject by saying that we need to be looking at longer time periods than 10 years and then, ultimately, acknowledged that the warming has slowed, not accelerated. A few minutes later, Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Al., made sure no one missed the point. He repeated Obama’s claim and then asked: “Do any of you support that quote?” Again, silence. Even the witnesses brought

in by the Democrats couldn’t support Obama’s false data. But, there were other interesting aspects of the nearly fourhour-long hearing. Chair man Boxer, in her opening statement, proclaimed: “Predictions of climate change are coming true right before our eyes.” She added, “We can look out the window and see the evidence of climate change mounting around us.” In preparation for the hearing, the minority produced an important report: “Critical Thinking on Climate Change:

through the veins of the legs are your leg muscles. When you use those muscles — when you walk, for example — they squeeze the veins and keep the circulation going. When you’re sitting on a long flight, you’re not doing much, if any, walking. Sitting in a cramped plane seat also slows the flow of blood at the knee. When your leg is stretched straight out, blood flows easily through the veins. But when the knee is bent, blood flow slows. Still, most people who sit on a plane for many hours, never walking and always with their knees bent, will not develop DVT. The fact that you developed a DVT and a PE indicates that

you may have been born with a tendency for your blood to clot more easily than is the case for most people. Having one DVT or PE means you are at high risk for another. If you were my patient, I would perform tests for various inherited conditions that cause blood to clot easily. I would also consider whether you should take an anticoagulant medication, such as warfarin, to help protect against blood clots indefinitely. Now back to airline travel: Prolonged sitting and dehydration — common on long flights — create ideal conditions for blood clots to form. Everyone embarking on a long

Questions to Consider Before Taking Regulatory Action and Implementing Economic Policies.” The 21-page report’s introduction states: “Over nearly four decades, numerous predictions have had adequate time to come to fruition, providing an opportunity to analyze and compare them to today’s statistics. ... This report posits that as the developing world has greatly expanded its use of fossil energy and CO2 emissions have increased, then the predictions and claims regarding human influence on climate patterns should be apparent and easily proven.” The remaining 19 pages are filled with predictions and claims — including Obama’s — that are false or foolish, such as former Vice President Al Gore’s on Dec. 13, 2008: “The entire north polar ice cap will be gone in five years.” And a 1989 statement from The Associated Press: “Using computer models, researchers conclude that global warming would raise average annual temperatures nationwide by two degrees by 2010.” Each set of predictions and claims is countered by “The Latest Science.” Reading the report, one finds that the claims often contradict the data. Back to Boxer. She starts with dramatic predictions about heat waves, tropical storms and hurricanes — which will be more frequent and intense. The first witness was Cullen, chief climatologist at Climate Central — who continued with the “extreme weather events” theme: “The impacts of human-caused climate change are being observed right here and right now in our own backyards and neighborhoods.” She said that warming is happening very, very quickly and that it is expected to accelerate. While Boxer and Cullen set the stage, as witnesses number 9 and 10, Roger Pielke Jr., and Roy Spencer provided the final act in Thursday’s theater. Pielke, a professor of environmental studies at the University of Colorado and the author of Climate Fix, started with seven “take-home points” that totally eviscerated Boxer and Cullen’s “extreme weather” claims. Showing a series of charts and graphs Pielke convinc-

ingly proved: “It is misleading, and just plain incorrect, to claim that disasters associated with hurricanes, tornadoes, floods or droughts have increased on climate timescales either in the United States or globally. It is further incorrect to associate the increasing costs of disasters with the emission of greenhouse gases.” Last, but surely not least, was Roy Spencer, who holds a Ph.D. in meteorology, and has spent his entire career in research — specifically satellite information retrieval techniques and global temperature monitoring. Spencer has served NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center as senior scientist for climate studies. Spencer demonstrated the failure of the computer model predictions upon which the IPCC based their projections of global warming. He offered a chart demonstrating the 73 models used and their predictions versus the actual temperature measurement from two satellite datasets and four weather balloon datasets. “The level of disagreement between models and observations is quite striking,” Spencer pointed out. “The magnitude of global-average atmospheric warming between 1997 and 2012 is only about 50 percent that predicted by the climate models. ... The level of warming in the most recent 15-year period is not significantly different from zero, despite this being the period of greatest greenhouse gas concentration. This is in stark contrast to claims that warming is ‘accelerating.’” He concludes: “It is time for scientists to entertain the possibility that there is something wrong with the assumptions built into their climate models. ... and so far their error rate should preclude their use for predicting future climate change.” The hearing’s “take-home points” is that Obama lied. Boxer and Cullen’s predictions are false. The models are inaccurate. So, for this we are going to ruin the economy and disproportionately hurt the poor?

flight should do these things to minimize the chances of developing a DVT or PE: — Stay hydrated. Drink enough water during the flight to make you get up and use the restroom several times. — Avoid alcohol, which can dry you out. — Move your muscles. Stand up and stretch your arms and legs at least once an hour. Walk up and down the aisle, or walk in place. While standing or sitting, do simple exercises such as

straightening your knee and stretching your leg and pointing your toes up and down. — Consider compression stockings. Elastic support stockings keep blood flowing by gently squeezing the legs and moving blood back to the heart. Consider using these when you travel in a seated position for many hours.

No more mail at your door? Delivery changes eyed WASHINGTON (AP) — Americans for generations have come to depend on door-to-door mail delivery. It’s about as American as apple pie. But with the Postal Service facing billions of dollars in annual losses, the delivery service could be virtually phased out by 2022 under a proposal a House panel was considering Wednesday. Curbside delivery, which includes deliveries to mailboxes at the end of driveways, and cluster box delivery would replace letter carriers slipping mail into front-door boxes. The proposal is part of broader legislation by Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., chair man of the House Oversight and Government Refor m Committee, designed to cut costs at the cash-strapped agency by up to $4.5 billion a year. The Postal Service had a $16 billion loss last year. The agency has been moving toward curbside and cluster box delivery in

new residential developments since the 1970s. The Postal Service in April began deciding whether to provide such delivery for people moving into newly built homes rather than letting the developers decide. “A balanced approach to saving the Postal Service means allowing USPS to adapt to America’s changing use of mail,” Issa said. “Done right, these reforms can improve the customer experience through a more efficient Postal Service.” About one in three mail customers has door -todoor delivery, Issa said. The shift would include safe and secure cluster box delivery areas, he said, especially for elderly customers who receive Social Security checks and prescriptions through the mail. About 30 million residential addresses receive delivery to boxes at the door or a mail slot. Another 87 million residential addresses receive curbside or cluster box delivery.

The cost differences are clear. Curbside delivery costs average $224 per year for each address, while cluster box delivery averages $160. Door -todoor delivery costs the agency about $350 per year, on average. Sue Brennan, a Postal Service spokeswoman, said, “While converting delivery away from the door to curb or centralized delivery would allow the Postal Service to deliver mail to more addresses in less time, doing so is not included in our five-year plan.” Brennan said the agency’s five-year plan does call for shifting 20 percent of business address deliveries from door -to-door to curbside and cluster box delivery through 2016. Rep. Steve L ynch, DMass., said the plan to move some 30 million residential addresses from tothe-door to curbside and cluster box service would be virtually impossible in dense urban areas such as

his hometown of South Boston crowded with triple-deckers — three apartments stacked on top of each other. “You’d have to knock houses down in my neighborhood to build cluster boxes,” Lynch said. “This will not work.” It might work in places like Manhattan with big

apartment buildings, he said. “Look, there’s no availability for cluster boxes in many communities around the country,” Lynch said. Issa’s plan allows for people with physical hardships to get waivers allowing them to keep door delivery. There’s also a provision giving people the

Experts say gas Pa. gay couple marries as in Gulf blowout county defies state’s ban is less damaging

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — A blown-out natural gas well blazing of f Louisiana’s coast poses fewer environmental dangers than past offshore accidents because it appears to primarily involve gas that disperses relatively easily, scientists said Wednesday. “A gas well’s not going to result in any kind of major pollution — perhaps not even significant pollution if it’s burning,” said Ted Bourgoyne, the for mer chair of Louisiana State University’s petr oleum engineering department. He now runs the consultancy Bourgoyne Enterprises Inc. Federal inspectors saw no sheens near the well during flyovers Wednesday morning, which indicates the gas is bur ning of f without releasing oil or other hydr ocarbons — which ar e sometimes

found in gas wells — into the water. While it’s not clear if the well in Tuesday’s blowout contained any crude oil, officials and scientists agree that the latest mishap shouldn’t be nearly as damaging as the BP oil spill that famously sent crude oil oozing ashore in 2010. The fire broke out late Tuesday hours after the blowout, authorities said. Forty-four workers were evacuated from a drilling rig at the site, and no injuries were reported. University of Georgia marine scientist Samantha “Mandy” Joye also said the pollution and health dangers posed by a gas well are quite different than those posed at the well where the Deepwater Horizon rig blew up in 2010, killing 11 people and spewing millions of gallons of oil for weeks.

NORRISTOWN, Pa. (AP) — At least five same-sex couples obtained marriage licenses Wednesday in a suburban Philadelphia county that is defying a state ban on such unions. Alicia T errizzi and Lor een Bloodgood, of Pottstown, were the only couple to marry right away, exchanging vows in a park before a minister and their two young sons. “We’re not setting out to be pioneers. We don’t think our family is any different than anybody else,” said Terrizzi, a 45-year-old teacher. “We’ve been waiting a long time for this.” The licenses issued Wednesday in Montgomery County are believed to be the first to same-sex couples in Pennsylvania, the only northeaster n state without same-sex marriages or civil unions. A 1996 Pennsylvania law defines marriage as a civil contract in which a man and a woman take each other as husband

and wife, and it says same-sex marriages, even ones entered legally elsewhere, are void in Pennsylvania. The American Civil Liberties Union of Pennsylvania filed a lawsuit this month seeking to overturn the law. Officials in the affluent and increasingly Democratic county signaled this week that they would nevertheless grant licenses to same-sex couples. The county officials and the same-sex couples who marry could find themselves in court if Republican Gov. Tom Corbett or other state officials challenge their actions. In other states with same-sex marriage bans, licenses issued by defiant local officials have been voided by courts. Montgomery County District Attorney Risa Ferman, a Republican, said Wednesday evening that a same-sex marriage license wasn’t legally valid under

existing Pennsylvania law but “the remedy for issuing an invalid marriage license does not include intervention by the office of the district attorney.” “The r egister of wills cannot change the laws of this commonwealth by simply ignoring them,” Fer man said in a statement. “If that change comes, it will be through Pennsylvania courts or the Legislature.” Corbett’s spokesman declined immediate comment. “Today I feel like a full citizen,” said Mar cus Saitschenko, 52, of Philadelphia, who came to the suburban courthouse with his partner of 22 years, James Goldstein. “We’re just hoping that the state will recognize it.” Montgomery County is the state’s third-largest county in terms of population. The licenses were issued a day after the county’s Register of Wills, D. Bruce

option to keep door delivery by paying a special fee to cover the additional cost. Issa’s bill also allows the Postal Service to take into account factors such as poverty rates and population density in deciding which areas would be allowed to keep door delivery. Hanes, said he would grant them to gay couples because he wanted to come down “on the right side of history and the law.” Hanes said he studied the state constitution and the recent Supreme Court decision that struck down parts of the Defense of Marriage Act before deciding last week to grant same-sex licenses. “I think the constitution trumps the (state marriage) statute,” Hanes said. “This to me is a fundamental civil right.” Ted Martin, the executive director of Equality Pennsylvania, said that, to the best of his knowledge, the licenses were the first same-sex marriage licenses ever issued in Pennsylvania. Retired marketing executive Ellen Toplin, 60, and partner Charlene Kurland, 69, sought a license Wednesday after 22 years together. Both had previously been married to men, and between them have three children and one grandchild. Kurland said there was a time “I didn’t even think I could say the word lesbian.”

SPORTS B A-Rod doctor says leg uninjured Thursday, July 25, 2013 Phone: 575-622-7710, ext. 304


Roswell Daily Record

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — A doctor retained by Alex Rodriguez for a second opinion — one that contradicted the New York Yankees’ diagnosis of his leg injury Wednesday — was reprimanded this year by New Jersey’s board of medical examiners over steroid prescriptions. Rodriguez is one of more than a dozen players under investigation by Major League Baseball for alleged ties to a Florida clinic accused of distributing performanceenhancing drugs. The New Jersey S t a t e

Board of Medical Examiners filed an order of reprimand against Dr. Michael Gross on Feb. 13 for his conduct at his Active Center for Health & Wellness. “The board ordered and Dr. Gross agreed to be formally reprimand(ed) for permitting an individual who had completed medical school but did not have a medical license to participate in the care and treatment of patients at the center and failing to adequately ensure proper patient treatment involving the prescribing of hor mones including steroids at the center,” according to the disciplinary summary on the New Jersey Attorney General’s division of consumer affairs website. The orthopedist was fined $30,000 and ordered to pay $10,000 in costs. The New York Daily News first


Price, surging Rays’ top Red Sox BOSTON (AP) — David Price pitched a five-hitter for his third complete game of the season, Wil Myers had a two-run single, and the surging Tampa Bay Rays won for the 19th time in 22 games by beating the Boston Red Sox 5-1 on Wednesday night. James Loney had two hits and drove in a run for the Rays. Tampa Bay moved within a half-game of the AL East-leading Red Sox. Mike Napoli homered for Boston, which lost for the fifth time in eight games. Price (5-5) needed only 97 pitches for his seventh career complete game. He struck out four and didn’t walk a batter. Since returning from a 47-day stint on the disabled list because of a triceps strain, he is 4-1 with a 1.76 ERA in five starts. The 27-year old lefthander overpowered Boston’s hitters, relying on a hard mid-90s fastball and sharp slider to lower his career ERA to 1.96 in Fenway Park. That is the lowest mark among active pitchers with at least 20 innings there. Felix Doubront (7-4) gave up three runs and six hits. He walked two and struck out six in 6 2/3 innings. It was his 13th straight game allowing three runs or fewer, the best stretch by a Red Sox left-hander since at least 1920. Boston lost for the fifth time in 15 games against the Rays. Tampa Bay jumped

reported the reprimand Wednesday and said MLB would expand its drug probe to examine Rodriguez’s relationship with Gross. Rodriguez was diagnosed Sunday with a strained left quadriceps on the final day of his injury rehabilitation assignment. At the time, the Yankees said the threetime MVP was examined by team physician Dr. Christopher Ahmad at New York-Presbyterian Hospital, where an MRI was performed. The team said Rodriguez had a grade one strain, which is the least severe type, and would retur n to Tampa for rest and treatment. But Gross said during an interview on WFAN radio Wednesday that he examined Rodriguez’s

NEW YORK (AP) — Alex Rodriguez certainly leads the New York Yankees in headlines this season even though he hasn’t played a single major league game. Injuries have kept him away from the team since last year’s playoffs, and now Rodriguez faces discipline from Major League Baseball in its drug investigation, possibly up to a lifetime ban. “The likelihood of a severe

ahead with three runs in the third on Myers’ tworun single and Sean Rodriguez’s sacrifice fly. Myers’ bloop fell into shallow center after the Rays loaded the bases on two singles and a fielder’s choice. In the seventh, Napoli homered over the seats above the Green Monster and out of the park. Loney and Jose Molina each had RBI singles off Matt Thornton to push the Rays’ lead to 5-1 in the eighth. Like in the opening game of the series when left-hander Matt Moore threw a two-hitter in a 3-0

victory, the Red Sox had trouble stringing hits together. In the fifth, Napoli had a leadoff double, but the next three hitters flied out. Boston also had leadoff singles in the second and fourth, but Price retired the side easily both times. Doubront had been 3-0 with a 1.83 ERA in his previous six starts, allowing two ear ned runs or fewer in all of them. NOTES: Rays manager Joe Maddon juggled his lineup, moving Evan Longoria up to the No. 2 spot. “Hopefully he’ll see a different type of pitching,” Maddon said. Longoria

had homered in three of his previous five games, but hit just .136 in his previous 18 with one homer. Maddon inserted hot rookie Myers in the cleanup spot. ...

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — A grim-faced coach Bill Belichick said Wednesday the New England Patriots will learn from the “terrible experience” of Aaron Hernandez’s arrest on a murder charge and work to improve their player evaluation process. Speaking publicly for the first time since the tight end was arrested four weeks earlier, Belichick said he was “shocked and disappointed” to learn of the criminal investigation while he was out of the United States. He also sought to minimize future attention on the case. “My comments are certainly not in proportion to the unfortunate and sad situation that we have here, but I’ve been advised to address the subject once,

and it’s time for the New England Patriots to move forward,” Belichick said. “Moving forward consists of what it’s always been here — to build a winning football team, to be a strong pillar in the community and be a team that our fans can be proud of. “I’m not trying to make this story disappear, but I respect the judicial process and have been advised not to comment on ongoing legal proceedings. I’m advising our players to do the same things.” The Patriots cut Hernandez after he was arrested the morning of June 26 and before he was charged that afternoon. Hernandez has pleaded not guilty. Players are scheduled to report to training camp on

Landon Donovan’s 2 goals lead US into Gold Cup final

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — By even the very high standards of coach Jurgen Klinsmann, Landon Donovan is regaining top form after taking a break from the national team. Donovan scored two goals and set up another on Wednesday night, helping the United States beat Honduras 3-1 to advance to the CONCACAF Gold Cup final. Klinsmann said the performance was “wonderful to watch.” “I have told him in our conversations that ‘I measure you. Your benchmark is the best Landon Donovan ever,”’ Klinsmann said. “I’m not taking anything less than that. And he is trying to catch up with that. Give him more games. Give him time.” While Klinsmann has declined to confirm that Donovan will be rejoining the World Cup qualifying team later this year, the top goal scorer in U.S. history is leaving little doubt that he belongs.

Donovan has five goals in the tournament, tying him with teammate Chris Wondolowski for most in the Gold Cup. Donovan has set up seven goals, including four in the last two games. Entering the game, he was the only U.S. player to play every minute of the tournament. He finally was subbed out in the 72nd minute, having earned a rest. “It’s the most relaxed I’ve felt,” Donovan said. “I feel good, and I’m really enjoying it.” The Americans will play the winner of the Panama-Mexico match on Sunday in Chicago. The U.S. has won a team-record 10 straight games. The U.S. struck first when Donovan found Eddie Johnson running through the middle of the Honduran defense. Johnson took a dribble and powered a shot past goalkeeper Donis Escober, giving

scan earlier in the day. “To be perfectly honest, I don’t see any sort of injury there,” Gross said. “It’s such a small thing that you might not see it on an MRI.” He added: “I asked him does anything hurt? And he said no.”’ Gross never personally examined Rodriguez and based his diagnosis on the MRI. He didn’t return a telephone message left at his office. Under baseball’s collective bargaining agreement, a player must inform his team in writing of his decision to obtain a second medical opinion. The Yankees said Rodriguez retained Gross without notifying them. “As always, we will follow the rules and regulations set forth in the Basic Agreement, and will again re-evaluate Alex in Tampa tomorrow, as our goal is to return him to the lineup as soon as he is medically capable of doing so,” general manager Brian Cashman said in a state-

Thursday when quarterback Tom Brady and the five other captains from last season will be available to reporters. The first practice is scheduled for Friday. Belichick opened his 22minute news conference by speaking from prepared notes. He expressed sympathy for the family of shooting victim Odin Lloyd, said the team’s in-depth process of studying a player’s background is “far from perfect” but wouldn’t be overhauled, and took responsibility for bringing people to the team. “The hundreds of players we’ve had through this program in the last 14 years, there’s been a lot of good ones, a lot of real good ones,” said Belichick, who became coach in 2000. “We’ll try to do a good job in bringing people into this organization in the future and try to learn from the

ment. Cashman said Rodriguez complained of “tightness” in the quadriceps July 12 “and therefore refused to consent to the transfer of his assignment” from Class A Tampa to Triple-A Scranton. He said Rodriguez complained of stif fness again Sunday, which led to the MRI. Rodriguez arrived at the Yankees’ minor league complex Wednesday and spent a little over four hours there. “I feel great. That’s all I’ve got to say.” he said when he left, rolling down a window of the SUV he was riding in. Then he rolled up the window, gave a thumbs up as it closed and departed. Rodriguez, who turns 38 on Saturday, had been recovering from hip surgery in January. He hit .250 (8 for 40) with two homers and eight RBIs in 13 minor league games before the leg injury. Outfielder Curtis Granderson, coming back from a broken pinkie, talked with Rodriguez in the clubhouse. “I saw him briefly as soon as I came in,” Granderson said. “He mistakes that we’ve made along the way, of which there have been plenty.” At about the same time as Belichick was speaking, Hernandez was in court for a probable cause hearing in which prosecutors asked for more time to present evidence to a grand jury. The hearing was rescheduled for Aug. 22. “Our thoughts and prayers are with the family of the victim and I extend my sympathy really to everyone who has been impacted,” Belichick said. “A young man lost his life. His family has suffered a tragic loss and there’s no way to understate that.” Belichick was unusually expansive in his answers. He declined to answer some questions about Hernandez, saying he had been advised not to answer those about people involved in the legal case. “This case involves an individual who happened to be a New England Patriot, and we certainly do not condone unacceptable behavior City (Guthrie 9-7), 6:10 p.m. L.A.

punishment for Rodriguez is very high,” former Commissioner Fay Vincent said Wednesday. The three-time AL MVP who turns 38 Saturday is among more than a dozen players MLB has targeted following allegations they were linked to a Florida clinic accused of distributing performance-enhancing drugs. After Ryan Braun’s agreement to accept a 65-game suspension earlier this week, attention has tur ned to Rodriguez, who four years ago admitted using PEDs while with Texas from 2001-03. He has repeatedly denied using them since, and MLB has never said he failed a test. Lawyers for MLB and the players’ association were set to resume discussions about the Biogenesis investigation Thursday. Though it was unclear who might be penalized next, all eyes were on A-Rod.

Roswell Daily Record The Yankees expect Rodriguez to be accused of using PEDs over multiple seasons, of recruiting other athletes for the clinic, of attempting to obstruct MLB’s investigation, and of not being truthful with MLB in the past when he discussed his relationship with Dr. Anthony Galea, who pleaded guilty two years ago to a federal charge of bringing unapproved drugs into the United States from Canada. “The mess seems very large indeed,” said John Thorn, baseball’s official historian. “If a lifetime suspension is being brooded about and a plea bargain would involve something lesser but still very substantial, that’s a whole bucket of tar dumped on his legacy.” With 647 home runs, fifth on the career list and 115 shy of matching Barry Bonds’ career record, Rodriguez is among the most prodigious sluggers in baseball history. And his record contracts have put him in the spot-

and this does not in any way represent the way that the New England Patriots want to do things,” he said. “As the coach of the team, I’m primarily responsible for the people that we bring into the football operation.” He didn’t say, in response to a question, if he had talked with Hernandez since the player’s name was linked to it. Belichick said “the fundamentals” of the Patriots’ player evaluation process will stay the same as they’ve been since he became coach in 2000, but the team will work hard to do it better. Hernandez dropped to the fourth round in the 2010 NFL draft because of character issues. Several teams took him off their draft board. “We look at every player’s history from the moment we start discussing it,” Belichick said, “going back to his family, where he grew up, what his lifestyle was like, high school, college experiences. We evaluate his performance, his intelli-

gence, his work ethic, his motivation, his maturity, his improvement and we try to project that into our organization on a going-forward basis.” Belichick wouldn’t answer a question about starting cornerback Alfonzo Dennard, who was charged with first-offense drunken driving after being pulled over in his car on July 11 in Lincoln, Neb., while on probation. He remains on the team. Players are evaluated on “a case-by-case basis,” Belichick said. “Whatever the circumstances are on any one individual, you’ll have to make the decision based on an individual basis.” With Hernandez, he said, the team “acted swiftly and decisively” to cut him. “Having someone in your organization that’s involved in a murder investigation is a terrible thing.” Patriots owner Robert Kraft has said he was “duped” by Hernandez.

DEAR ABBY: I have read you for years, and I must take issue with your answer to “Needs the Right Words” (March 17). He asked about his son and his son’s half-brother visiting his beach house. (He didn’t want the half-brother included.) While you addressed the writer’s needs, and yes, he is entitled to his feelings, I think you should have taken this a step further. Once you become a father, it is not all about “you” anymore. The 12-year-old boy is now, and forever will be, his son’s half-brother. Unless this man wants to distance

himself from his son and cause permanent damage to their relationship, he needs to get some therapy so he will be able to think of that boy in a different way and can deal with him in the future. He is NOT in a “good place” as he stated if seeing this boy causes such an emotional issue. The two boys seem to have a good relationship, and a future with his son will — and should — include the halfbrother, even if the visits are short ones. Someday that boy will be a grown man, and he will recognize the kindness shown to him. The boy is not responsible for his mother’s behavior and the father needs to realize that. DEBORAH IN CHANDLER, ARIZ. DEAR DEBORAH: You are right. It would have been better for all concerned if I had been harder on the father and more sensitive to the feelings of the boys involved, which many readers pointed out to me:


DEAR ABBY: I almost always agree with your answers, but your answer to that letter was off the mark. It’s admirable that his son has such a close relationship with his halfbrother, and not allowing the boys to do something they enjoy together for a weekend is wrong. That the writer admits he still has problems with the past is his problem, not the kids’. Since he admits it brings up feelings he THOUGHT he had put behind him, he should get professional help to finally deal with those unresolved issues. Also, if he doesn’t want the 12-year-old in his house for one weekend of fun, then he should take his wife away for a romantic weekend and let the boys use the beach house in his absence. It’s all about compromise, not the ultimatum. BEEN THERE, DONE THAT IN KANSAS DEAR ABBY: Tell that man to get a psychotherapist! The child isn’t responsible for

his mother’s behavior. The man needs to expand his heart. When he’s an old man he will never regret hosting the boy, but he WOULD regret having hurt a child and perhaps alienating his own son in the process. You called that one wrong, Abby! LESLIE R., CHAMPAIGN, ILL.

Family Circus

DEAR ABBY: I agree with your advice more often than not, although I suspect we are at opposite ends of the political spectrum. That father needs to grow up and put the feelings of his son and his son’s half-brother before his own. It’s time people learned once more what it means NOT to be selfish and think of their own feelings, but the feelings of others. Please reconsider your response. PAUL W., JOHNSON CITY, TENN. DEAR PAUL: I have, and I regret my initial answer.

Today’s Crossword Puzzle

Dear Heloise: I just had the frightening experience of needing to EVACUATE MY HOME because of a fast-moving brush fire. As soon as I saw the smoke and firemen, I gathered our five cats and put them in a small bathroom. I got out the cat carriers and got the cats loaded and stacked by the front door. Before I could gather up anything else, a fireman was insisting that I had to leave immediately. If the cats weren’t already in their carriers, I would have had to leave them. They would have been hiding, and I never would have been able to get a hold of them. Thank goodness all was well, and we all returned to our home that evening, but my ordeal would have been much worse if I had been worried about the cats’ safety. Judy W., Monrovia, Calif.

What an ordeal! Glad that everything was OK! Hopefully readers will see this and take to heart your words of wisdom. Thanks for sharing, Judy! Heloise

Dear Heloise: Now that summer is here, I am looking forward to hanging my clothes outside on the line. It saves money, and I just love hanging the clothes up while enjoying the sun and warmth! I live in the snow belt, and we have a very short summer. For those people who would like to hang clothes outside but think they don’t have the time, you could hang them out in the afternoon or early evening and then take them down the next day. Even if it should rain overnight, it won’t hurt. It actually adds to the wonderful fresh smell. Colleen in Pennsylvania

Dear Heloise: Each year, a ritual of separating my daily planner is carried out. The pages are torn out and shredded, or sensitive material is marked out. The binding and covers are recycled. Margarette in Texas

Dear Heloise: When walking down an aisle between two rows of cars, walk on the side closer to the driver’s side. You can see if there is someone in the driver’s seat who may be about to back out. The driver can more easily see you than if you are coming from the far side of his/her car. Polly Womack, Los Alamitos, Calif.

Dear Heloise: I took our old grill, after the elements had burned out, and made it into a planter. It works great, especially for me, as I have a hard time bending down. It can be wheeled around wherever you’d like some color. Dave, via email

Dell’s founder boosts offer to buy the company

NEW YORK (AP) — A group led by Dell’s founder raised its offer for the struggling computer maker on Wednesday in hopes of attracting more shareholder support for its plan to take the company private. The 10-cent per share increase came just hours before Dell’s shareholders were scheduled to vote on the previous $13.65 per share offer from Michael Dell and investment firm Silver Lake Partners. But the extra money comes with a catch, a stipulation that the offer’s fate be decided by the will of the shareholders who choose to

vote in favor of the plan or against it, leaving out those who don’t vote at all. Previously, non-voting shareholders were counted as opponents of the proposal. The Round Rock, Texas, company delayed its shareholder meeting for the second time in two weeks, moving it to Aug. 2 to give the special committee of its board time to consider the offer. The meeting had been set for Wednesday, after being delayed the week before in a sign that the offer didn’t have enough shareholder support. Michael Dell and Silver Lake said Wednesday that the new offer

EU cracking down on card payment fees

BERLIN (AP) — The European Union said Wednesday that it plans to cap some credit and debit card fees in a move that would save retailers up to 6 billion euros ($7.9 billion) per year. The European Commission, the 28-nation bloc’s executive arm, said limiting the fees paid by retailers to banks every time a customer uses a card will ultimately lead to lower prices for all consumers. The proposed legislation would cap the so-called interchange fees at 0.2 percent of a transaction’s value for debit cards and 0.3 percent for credit cards. In some countries, fees are currently as high as 1.5 percent of a purchase’s value. Most consumers, however, are unaware of the behindthe-scenes charges. “The interchange fees paid by retailers end up on consumers’ bills,” EU Competition Commissioner Joaquin Almunia said at a news conference in Brussels. “This needs to change.” The proposal still needs approval by the European Parliament and a majority of EU member nations. Mastercard Inc., which along with Visa processes payments and collects fees on debit and credit cards issued by banks, warned against the planned cap. The move, it said, could lead to higher card fees for consumers. “We are concerned about the harm these proposals will cause to consumers and small merchants in the EU,” the company said in a statement Wednesday. But EU Commissioner Michel Barnier, who is in charge of financial services, insisted the legislation will lead to lower prices for consumers, dismissing Mastercard’s lobbying efforts against it as an “unbearable campaign” of disinformation. Visa also joined in the criticism Wednesday — warning “these proposals will be detrimental to the innovation that will support European economic growth.” The lobby group for Europe’s retailers said the caps should be even harsher, but welcomed the proposals as a significant step to foster competition and transparency. “They should allow retailers to pass savings on to consumers, bringing them real benefits in these times of hardship,” said EuroCommerce chief Christian Verschueren.

according to their last count about 27 percent of the company’s shares, excluding Michael Dell’s stake, have yet to be voted. For those shares to be treated as if they had voted against the deal is “patently unfair,” the group argued. Two major Dell Inc. shareholders, billionaire Carl Icahn and investment firm Southeastern Asset Management, have been spearheading an effort to defeat the deal. They depict the proposal as an attempt by Michael Dell to seize control of the company at a sharp discount to its long-term value.

answer to its new offer. It has given the company until 6 p.m. EDT Wednesday to respond. Dell’s stock fell 3 cents to $12.85 in afternoon trading, after a morning where the stock’s trading volume was more than triple its daily average. In their letter to Dell shareholders, Michael Dell and Silver Lake said they believe the change is “fair and reasonable” to the company’s other shareholders, especially given the new offer’s additional 10 cents per share for the stakeholders. Late Wednesday morning, the group said in a statement that

PepsiCo beats expectations, stands by portfolio NEW YORK (AP) — PepsiCo Inc. reported a better -than-expected quarterly profit on Wednesday and said its mixed portfolio played a role, underscoring its resistance to splitting up its drinks and snacks businesses. The company, which makes Gatorade, Tropicana, Quaker and Frito-Lay chips, said higher prices helped lift revenue for its Americas food division. Volume also rose 2 percent for the unit, its biggest division by sales. Revenue in Europe, Asia, the Middle East and Africa also saw gains, helped by stronger volumes. Its Americas beverage unit remained a drag, however. Revenue slipped as price hikes failed to offset a 3.5 percent decline in volume. Sodas in North America fell in the mid-single digits, while non-carbonated drinks declined in the low-single digits. “The fact remains that the beverage category in the U.S. has its challenges, especially carbonated soft drinks,” CEO Indra Nooyi said in a call with analysts. But she said productivity in the unit is improving and alluded to the company’s work in trying to find a way to reduce calories in sodas while using natural sweeteners. The results come a week after investor Nelson Peltz said he wants PepsiCo to split its beverage and food businesses and buy Oreo cookie maker Mondelez to create a major global snacks company. Peltz says PepsiCo’s snacks unit is being overshadowed by its underperforming drinks unit. The company, based in Purchase, N.Y., is often compared unfavorably to Coca-Cola Co., particularly as it has lost market share to Coca-Cola in recent years. But unlike CocaCola, which is focused entirely on

The group wants to change the conditions for approval to require that a majority of the shares voted, excluding Michael Dell’s stake, be in favor of the proposal. Under the current terms, the group needs a majority of all the company’s outstanding shares, whether they are voted or not, excluding Michael Dell’s stake, to vote in favor of it.

In an interview on CNBC, Chief Financial Officer Hugh Johnston said that the company’s variety of products helped it deliver strong results despite bad weather during the period. For example, he noted that Gatorade sales increase when it’s hot, and that Quaker and Tropicana sales increase when it’s cold or when people have the flu. “The portfolio is what enables you to power through these things,” Johnston said. Last week, Coca-Cola Co. had blamed unusually cold, wet weather for its disappointing results, saying such conditions aren’t good for sales of soda and other drinks. In an apparent dig, Johnston also noted that the deal being proposed by Peltz would benefit Mondelez

shareholders; Peltz owned a $1.23 billion stake in Mondelez as of March 31, according to a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission. In addition to higher prices for its drinks and snacks, PepsiCo, based in Purchase, N.Y., noted that its improved productivity also helped lift operating profit during the period. It stood by its outlook for the year, with core earnings per share expected to grow 7 percent. Its stock was up 1 percent at $87.20 in premarket trading. Over the past year, it’s up 25 percent. PepsiCo has repeatedly stressed that it plans to move forward as a combined snack and drink company, and that it’s not interested in any major deals. The CEO of investment firm BlackRock, which owns a 5 percent stake in PepsiCo, has said that he backs the company and disagrees with Peltz’s plan.

Review: Fakes fab in Beatles tribute ‘Let It Be’ NEW YORK (AP) — Even fake Beatles can bring back good memories of the real thing, when they’re truly talented. The Beatles, arguably one of the most talented and influential bands in musical history, produced a treasure trove of unforgettable tunes. Mostly written by John Lennon and Paul McCartney, their dozens of classic hits include “Yesterday,” “Hey, Jude,” “Get Back,” “Come Together” and “Let it Be.” If you can check your nostalgia at the door, the tribute show “Let It Be” that opened Wednesday night on Broadway at the St. James Theatre stands on its own as a lively, multimedia concert and a rocking good time. A rotating cast of 10 accomplished musicians recreate the Beatles onstage, performing concert or studio versions of 40 of their songs. Starting with the early Cavern Club days in Liverpool, they skillfully progress through pop songs performed on the “Ed Sullivan Show” to the colorful psychedelic era of

This Monday, July 15, photo, provided by The Hartman Group shows James Fox performing "Magical Mystery Tour" in the rock musical "Let It Be" at the St. James Theater in New York.

“Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band” to the end times of “Abbey Road.” Projections of authentic, carefully edited news clips provide glimpses of the increasingly turbulent social times during the band’s years together, through the 1960s to their early 1970 breakup. Due to

copyright issues, the Beatles’ real names are never used either in the program or during the 2 1/2-hourlong show, nor is the word “Beatles” heard or seen onstage. But there’s no question who these enthusiastic musicians are portraying. In fact, it’s a little creepy

for those who were around during the originals to see the two deceased Beatles accurately reincarnated. Visually invoking Lennon, Reuven Gershon performs with appropriate cool, while John Brosnan is nicely intense as lead guitarist George Harrison. Enacting still-living Beat-

les, James Fox incorporates eye-rolling, winking mannerisms and soaring vocals reminiscent of the young McCartney, while drummer Luke Roberts has a head-bopping good time as Ringo Starr. Those four musicians performed in an energetic preview that often had the crowd up on its feet, clapping and singing along. The alternating cast includes Graham Alexander, Ryan Coath and Chris McBurney. R yan Alex Farmery hovers cheerfully in the background, handling keyboards in rotation with John Korba and Daniel A. Weiss. There’s not much dialogue, aside from some merry onstage banter and a few philosophical musings, and the show doesn’t pretend at all to cover the storied history of the band, preferring to focus on the music. Musical supervisor and U.S. director John Mahr oversees a variety of musical styles, including a complex orchestral simulation for “A Day In the Life” and a lovely segment of acoustic songs capped by

“While My Guitar Gently Weeps.” The production is visually appealing, with an array of colorful, sometimes trippy graphics and the grainy news clips or photos projected above, behind and sometimes all around the band. Psychedelic images dance up and down the theater walls during favorites like “Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds” and “With a Little Help From My Friends.” For rear audience members, close-ups of the singers often appear on quaint-looking television screens hanging atop the proscenium. The “Let It Be” tribute debuted last fall at London’s Prince of Wales Theatre, to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Beatles, so the show didn’t take “The Long and Winding Road” to get to Broadway. In “The End,” the audience can “Come Together” over seminal lyrics like “The love you take/is equal to the love you make.” And take away the thought that, as the Beatles pointed out so long ago, “All You Need Is Love.”
