“We did build this.” That was the message propelled countrywide, Wednesday, by Victory 2012, the nationwide campaign to elect Gov. Mitt Romney president. The Romney campaign held 24 “We Did Build This,” events in 12, mostly swing states, in response to comments made by President Barack Obama at a campaign event in Roanoke, Va., on July 13.


Obama, touching on the government’s role in aiding entrepreneurs, said at the campaign stop, “Somebody helped to create this unbelievable American system that we have that allowed you to thrive. Somebody invested in roads and bridges. If you’ve got a business, you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen.” “We didn’t build it? Well I’m trying to figure out who did,” said Jim Mannatt, owner of Mannatt and Co. Realtor. Joined by wife

Marilyn, Mannatt spoke to an audience of area Republicans, as a small-business owner of a real estate company with five employees, and two small energy companies. “When your leadership comes from the public sector, and has no experience in making a payroll, or meeting the responsibilites of the private sector, and never had a job in the private sector, that tells us as Americans and residents of Chaves County how danSee GOP, Page A7

ALBUQUERQUE (AP) — New Mexico has fallen to 49th in the country for overall child welfare, according to an annual ranking by a nonprofit group. Only Mississippi fared worse than New Mexico in the 2012 Kids Count Data Book released Wednesday by the Annie E. Casey Foundation. Although this year’s report says New Mexico has seen a 29 percent increase in the number of children with health insurance, as well as reductions in child deaths and low birth weight babies, it says New Mexico has “a long way to go toward improving the economic, education, and community-related well-being” of kids. “This year’s national Kids Count findings continue to be disappointing,” Veronica Garcia, executive director of New Mexico Voices for Children, said in a news release reporting the New Mexico findings. More than one-third of the state’s parents lacked secure employment in 2010, up 23 percent from two years before, the report said. And 30,000 more New Mexico kids now live in poverty than in 2005. In education, the report says the number of kids failing in math and reading has declined, but the number of students who don’t graduate

Senate OKs tax cut ‘Only one more step to go’

WASHINGTON (AP) — Democrats pushed a yearlong extension of tax cuts for all but the highest-earning Americans through the Senate on Wednesday, giving President Barack Obama and his party a significant political victory on a measure that is fated to go no further in Congress.

Senators approved the Democratic bill by a near party-line 51-48 vote, with Vice President Joe Biden presiding over the chamber in case his vote was needed to break a tie. Minutes earlier, lawmakers voted 54-45 to kill a rival Republican package that would have included the best-off in the tax reductions. The $250 billion Democratic measure would extend tax cuts in 2013 for millions of Americans that

otherwise would expire in January. But it would deny those reductions to the ear nings of individuals exceeding $200,000 yearly and of couples surpassing $250,000. The vote served as a counterpoint to the GOPrun House, which next week will approve tax cuts nearly identical to the $405 billion Republican plan the Senate rejected Wednesday. And it lets Democrats argue that only the GOP stands in the way of tax cuts for millions of Americans. Congress’ nonpartisan Joint Committee on Taxation has said just 3.5 percent of taxpayers with business income filing individual retur ns would be See SENATE, Page A7

Eastern New Mexico University-Roswell graduates of the Special Services Occupational Training Program wave to a mutual friend who arrived to wish them luck prior to commencement ceremonies at the Civic Center, Wednesday.

Close to 100 students filed into the Roswell Civic Center, Wednesday, to participate in Easter n New Mexico University-Roswell’s 26th annual graduation for the Special Services Occupational Training Program. First-year students wore Kelly-green robes, while second-year students donned white robes, and all wore smiles as bright as their futures as they made their way to their seats, while harpist Charles Crow skillfully played “Stairway to Heaven.”

Students, family and friends in attendance were greeted by the director of the program, Sigrid Webb, before deputy director Peter Stover introduced the student speaker Kara Yslas. The veterinary assistant graduate began by congratulating her classmates for making it this far, and then encouraged them to continue to disprove naysayers and keep in mind what they are all capable of.

“Don’t ever let people say you can’t do something because of your disabilities,” she urged. “Because they are wrong. We may lear n a little dif ferently

than other students, but we do learn, and we can be excellent employees.” The Special Services Occupational Training Program is designed to help individuals with learning disabilities, physical disabilities or developmental delay. According to Stover, the goal is for students to complete the program and be able to compete for entry-level positions as well as garner independent living skills. Since his arrival in 2001, Stover said he’s watched the number of graduates See ENMU-R, Page A7

Syria rushes reinforcements to its largest city

A Syrian boy sits atop a damaged military tank at the border town of Azaz, some 20 miles north of Aleppo, Syria, Tuesday. Turkey sealed its border with Syria to trucks on Wednesday, cutting off a vital supply line to the embattled nation as fighting stretched into its fifth day in the commercial capital of Aleppo.

BEIRUT (AP) — Syrian troops rushed dozens of tanks and reinforcements Wednesday toward Aleppo, the country’s strategically vital commercial capital, in a bid to crush a rebel advance that has spread to wide swaths of the sprawling city. As five days of fighting

in Aleppo intensified, and with rumors swirling of a final showdown in that city, neighboring Turkey tightened its borders but said refugees will be allowed through. The rebels have made stunning advances over the past week, but the battle for control of Syria,

a geographic and political linchpin at the heart of the Middle East, is far from over. And the potential for wider, regional unrest is great. Israel’s foreign minister warned that his country will act immediately if it discovers Islamic militants such as Lebanon’s Hezbollah are raiding Syria’s chemical or biological weapons stocks. “For us, that’s a casus belli, a red line,� Avigdor Lieber man told Israel Radio. Israeli of ficials have reported a run on gas masks. Demand has almost doubled in the past few days, to 4,200 requests on Tuesday from a years-old average of about 2,200, said Merav Lapidot, a spokeswoman for the Israeli postal service, which distributes the masks. On Monday, Syria threatened to unleash its chemical and biological weapons if it faces a foreign attack. The White House said Wednesday that the Syrian government’s assault on Aleppo with tanks and

fixed-wing aircraft illustrates what it called “the depth of depravity� by Assad’s regime. White House spokesman Jay Car ney said the administration has seen “credible� reports about the regime’s use of military hardware in Aleppo. Carney said Assad was using its forces to “perpetrate heinous violence� against the city’s civilian population. Carney also pointed to defections by two Syrian ambassadors as an indication that of ficials in Assad’s circle are “fleeing government because of the heinous actions taken by Assad.� Turkey’s decision to seal its border to trucks Wednesday comes as fears mount that the 17-monthold crisis in Syria will spread. Syria’s close ties to Iran and Hezbollah mean that the conflict has the potential to draw in the country’s neighbors. Turkey was a Syrian ally before the uprising began in March 2011, but Ankara is now among the harshest critics of Damascus. Turkish territory

There are no immediate prospects for international action in Syria or the kind of NATO air campaign that tipped the scales against Libya’s Moammar Gadhafi. NATO and the U.N. have all but ruled out foreign military intervention, in part out of fears that it would only make the country’s problems worse. The U.S. and its allies have shown little appetite for getting involved in another Arab nation in turmoil. Russia, Syria’s longtime ally and a veto-wielding member of the U.N. Security Council, has ensured that the kind of U.N. reso-

lutions that allowed Wester n military action in Libya would not be repeated in Syria. On Wednesday, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov criticized new European efforts to enforce an arms embargo as “unilateral sanctions� and a “blockade.�

“I think diplomats have to be optimistic and that’s no joke, I think we have to hope,� Ladsous told reporters. “We have to hope that the whole process gains traction, that the vicious circle of violence can cease, and that some political solution and first and foremost some political dialogue can get started.�

House GOP revokes Obama’s 5-year plan for offshore drilling

WASHINGTON (AP) — In an election-year swipe at President Barack Obama’s energy policies, the Republican-led House on Wednesday voted to revoke Obama’s five-year plan for offshore drilling, replacing it with its own plan that calls for more ambitious oil and gas development off the U.S. coast. The legislation will likely go nowhere in the Senate and the White House has issued a veto threat, but as with the tax and regulatory bills the House is also taking up this month, it puts lawmakers on the record on the issues that divide the two parties. The Republican proposal passed 253-170 with 25 Democrats supporting it. The House also voted 261164 to reject the president’s plan. The Interior Department on June 28 announced its 2012-2017 offshore oil and gas leasing program that schedules 12 potential lease sales in the Gulf of Mexico and three off the coast of Alaska. The White House, in its veto threat issued earlier this week, said its plan makes available for development more than 75 percent of estimated, technically recoverable oil and gas resources in U.S. oceans. The House bill, by contrast, provides for 29 lease sales over the same fiveyear period, and includes areas of the Atlantic coast from Maine to Virginia, and areas of f the souther n

coast of California as well as Alaska and Gulf areas. Rep. Doc Hastings, RWash., chair man of the Natural Resources Committee, said the administration’s plan proposed fewer leases than any administration since the Jimmy Carter presidency. Singling out an election swing state, he said “Virginia will be left out in the cold� until 2017 at the earliest, cheating the commonwealth of thousands of jobs. The Obama plan, he said, keeps 85 percent of America’s offshore areas off-limits to energy production. Hastings said the GOP plan would generate $600 million in additional revenue and create tens of thousands of new jobs. But Rep. Ed Markey of Massachusetts, top Democrat on the Natural Resources Committee, chided Republicans for bringing six “giveaways to Big Oil� to the House floor, “all far too extreme to pass the Senate.� Democrats also argued that more domestic oil is in production today than at any time during the past 14 years and that oil companies already have leases in the Gulf that contain 18 billion barrels of oil and are sitting idle. Congress has 60 days from the time the Interior Department issued the proposal to reject or change it. Without congressional action, the plan will go into effect.

Study: New Medicaid expansion could be a lifesaver Roswell Daily Record

WASHINGTON (AP) — States that expand their Medicaid programs under President Barack Obama’s health care law may end up saving thousands of lives, a medical jour nal report released Wednesday indicates. Until now, the Medicaid debate has been about budgets and states’ rights. But a statistical study by Harvard researchers in the New England Jour nal of Medicine found a 6 percent drop in the adult death rate in Arizona, Maine and New York, three states that have recently expanded coverage for low-income residents along the general lines of the federal health care law. The study found that for every 176 adults covered under expanded Medicaid, one death per year would be prevented. “Policymakers should be aware that major changes in Medicaid — either expansions or reductions in coverage — may have significant ef fects on the health of vulnerable populations,” wrote the researchers from the Harvard School of Public Health. Medicaid is a federalstate program for lowincome and severely disabled people. It covers about 60 million people in the United States. The new law assigned Medicaid a major role in expanding coverage, accounting for about half the 30 million uninsured people expected to gain insurance as a

result of the health overhaul. But the Supreme Court last month ruled that states have the leeway to reject the law’s Medicaid expansion, which is geared to reach mostly uninsured adults without children and with annual incomes up to about $15,400. As a consequence, the Congressional Budget Office projects 3 million fewer people will gain coverage. Although the CBO still expects most states will expand their programs to some degree, the agency’s nonpartisan analysts project that it may take longer than a decade for some governors and legislatures to decide. Some gover nors in Republican-led states, including Texas and Florida, have rejected the Medicaid expansion since the high court’s ruling. Many remain on the fence, awaiting the outcome of the November elections and GOP promises to repeal the law. Although Washington will pay all of the cost of the expansion for the first three years, then scale back to a 90 percent share, Republican governors say Medicaid is already too costly and the Obama administration repeatedly has blocked their efforts to streamline the program. The New England Journal study seems destined to be swept up immediately into the debate. Critics are certain to point out that its lead author, Dr. Benjamin

Sommers, is on temporary assignment from Harvard working in a policy division of the federal Department of Health and Human Services, which is carrying out Obama’s overhaul. In an interview, Sommers said, “HHS does not have anything to do with this paper.” The research was under way before he began serving as an adviser to the department, and no federal money was used in the project, he said. Like other major medical publications, the jour nal rigorously reviews research prior to publication. The study’s findings counter a widespread perception that having a Medicaid card is little better than being uninsured. Because Medicaid pays doctors far less than Medicare and private insurance, some experts have questioned it will be able to deliver the care that people need. The study compared key health statistics in the three states that expanded Medicaid coverage with outcomes in neighboring states that did not, examining five years before the expansion and the five years after. New York, Maine and Arizona have all expanded eligibility for adults since 2000, with New York’s expansion by far the largest. States that did not expand and were used for the comparison included Pennsylvania (for New York), New Hampshire (for

GOP senators launch tour warning of defense cuts WASHINGTON (AP) — Senate Republicans warning of the devastating impact from looming defense cuts will hit four presidential battleground states next week, ratcheting up the political pressure on President Barack Obama even though Congress endorsed the reductions. Sens. John McCain, Lindsey Graham and Kelly Ayotte announced Thursday that they will hold a series of town hall meetings in Florida, North Carolina, Virginia and New Hampshire — states that are home to military installations and defense contracting jobs. The three said in a statement that they will “sound the alarm about the profound negative consequences of these cuts to our national security and economy. These communities, which provide our troops the equipment and support they need to defend our country, will bear the brunt of the defense sequestration cuts.” McCain, R-Ariz., voted for the cuts last August; Graham, R-S.C., and Ayotte, R-N.H., opposed them. Republicans have blamed Obama for the automatic, across-theboard reductions in projected defense spending, but Republicans as well as Democrats voted for the cuts as part of a $1.2 trillion deficit-cutting plan. The Senate by voice vote Wednesday night approved a bill requiring the administration to detail how it would make the cuts. The bill, which had already been approved by the House, now goes to the president. The law implements nearly $500 billion in cuts over 10 years as the nation emerges from wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. If Congress can’t find a way to avert the automatic cuts, known as sequestration, defense and domestic programs would

face another round of cuts of about $500 billion apiece beginning on Jan. 2. The cuts were set in motion by the failure of the bipartisan congressional supercommittee last November to produce $1.2 trillion in spending cuts. Lawmakers have called the reductions catastrophic for the military. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta issued a fresh war ning of his own on Wednesday. “I sure as hell hope that sequestration doesn’t happen,” Panetta told a joint House panel focused on veterans issues. “It would be, as I’ve said, time and time again, a disaster in terms of the Defense Department, as far as our budget is concerned and as far as our ability to respond to the threats that are out there.” Panetta said it would mean double the defense budget cuts and the 100,000 personnel cut. In real terms, however, the base defense budget has nearly doubled over the past decade, from $297 billion in 2001 to $529 billion in 2011. That amount does not include the billions spent on the two wars. The Pentagon envisioned spending would increase to $700 billion in 2021. If the automatic cuts kick in, next year’s Pentagon budget would face a cut of about $55 billion in projected spending from a half-trillion-dollar budget. Graham, who traveled through his state of South Carolina in May, warned that the automatic cuts would force more than 180,000 out of the Army, cast doubt on the future of Fort Jackson and mean the termination of the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter, which is supposed to be based at the Marine Corps Air Station in Beaufort and Shaw Air Force Base outside Sumter. Since then, Graham,

McCain and several Democrats have discussed a possible oneyear alter native to the automatic cuts that would involve raising revenue through changes in the tax rates. That idea, however, hasn’t won much support from Republicans resistant to raising taxes. Graham said in an interview that to force the issue in Congress, it’s necessary to “create pressure outside the body. ... I hope Democrats will do what we’re doing on the non-defense side. If I were a Democrat worried about the NIH’s budget — I’m worried about it myself — I’d be out there doing what we’re doing.” But he made clear he is frustrated with Obama. “I think he’s been AWOL,” Graham said. “Quite frankly, it’s an abrogation of his commander-in-chief responsibility to go to the VFW and criticize us when you haven’t done anything to solve the problem.” Obama said in his VFW speech on Monday. “There are a number of Republicans in Congress who don’t want you to know that most of them voted for these cuts. ... Now they’re trying to wriggle out of what they agreed to.” Graham said he hopes to attach any plan to a bill to keep the government operating. On the House side, the top Democrats on the various committees sent a letter to Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, calling for bipartisan negotiations to replace the automatic cuts with a balanced deficit reduction plan. “We are confident that we can identify revenue sources and prioritize investments in a bipartisan fashion to avoid the sequester while achieving our deficit reduction goals,” the 21 Democrats wrote.

Maine), and Nevada and New Mexico (for Arizona).

The study is not the gold standard for statistical research because subjects were not selected at random, but Sommers said the researchers cross-checked their results and are confident of the findings. In addition to the drop in

death rates among adults ages 20 to 64, the study found a 21 percent drop in delays getting care blamed on cost barriers.

It’s the second recent study to document the benefits of Medicaid. A study of Oregonians published last year found that those with Medicaid were far more

likely to get regular medical care, including preventive screenings. The subjects of the Oregon study were randomly selected.

“Expanding Medicaid to low-income adults is associated with significant gains in health and survival,” said Sommers.

Keystone Cops govern New Mexico Finance Authority Ten members of the 11-member New Mexico Finance Authority board are appointed by the governor. Four of them are members of Gov. Susana Martinez’s own Cabinet. The Authority’s CEO, Rick May, served in her Cabinet until assuming his NMFA post nearly a year ago. So you might think the Martinez administration would have had its ducks in a row last week, when NMFA board members met, not once but twice, to deal with evidence that a former agency controller had fraudulently concocted the 2011 financial reports of the Finance Authority, which loans millions of dollars to state entities and schools for capital equipment and infrastructure. Those meetings came in the wake of news reports that Moody’s Investor Service and Standard & Poor’s were conducting reviews of NMFA, citing “weak inter nal controls” at NMFA.





Reviews of this sort have been known to increase a state’s interest rates when it borrows. In short, the stakes are high. Yet the ducks were in disarray last week as the gover nor’s NMFA board members were seen quite publicly to be bumping into themselves like Keystone Cops of yore. Martinez, herself, seemed at a loss. “We don’t want to lose our rating,” she said, before twice restating her thoughts on the matter in different words: “We don’t want it reduced. We want it to be stable.” Finance Authority CEO May

wanted to hire a top D.C. legal firm to investigate how the fraud had been engineered, a proposal that sent a majority of the governor’s appointees on the board into a tailspin. Ultimately they rejected the idea altogether. Meanwhile, let it be noted that no one at the NMFA — neither CEO nor board members — can claim credit for discovering that the agency’s so-called financial report was, in fact, phonybaloney. It was Hector Balderas, the state auditor, who unearthed the skullduggery after the NMFA was late in submitting the report to him as required by state law. What’s more, Balderas has confirmed that the independent firm allegedly credited by the former NMFA controller with having reviewed and certified the 2011 financial statement has told the state auditor’s office that they did no such thing.

Roswell Daily Record

“I am moving aggressively to determine the full extent of this fraud perpetrated against New Mexico taxpayers,” Balderas has said. “I’m extremely concerned that a report was fraudulently created in order to misrepresent the authority’s financial condition to agencies, investors and the public.” Balderas has also notified law enforcement authorities, presumably including the FBI, of the funny business at the NMFA. Additionally, state Securities Division director Daniel Tanaka will also be looking into the wrongdoing at the Finance Authority. According to Tanaka his preliminary findings suggest that the fake financial report may not be the only thing amiss at NMFA. What makes this af fair so mind-boggling is the fact that the bogus 2011 financial statement is reportedly a verbatim reissue of the 2010 report previously sub-

mitted to the state auditor several months late. There’s no escaping it: Moody’s understated when it cited “weak internal controls” as the reason for putting the New Mexico Finance Authority on the to-bereviewed list. There are no controls at the Finance Authority. Did CEO Rick May not notice that his agency’s proposed 2011 report on financial transactions bore a striking resemblance to the report it belatedly sent the state auditor in 2010? And when he sent the 2011 statement to the NMFA board for approval, wouldn’t you think at least one of the 11 members might have had a moment’s déjà vu? “A lot of people read it, a lot of people saw it, but nobody caught it,” said May.

Syrian tragedy

As the weekend began, it had become apparent that Syria’s horrific 17-month uprising against the regime of President Bashar al-Assad had entered its final stages. It remains only to be seen how many people must die before Assad realizes that and what, if anything, the international community can do to ease Syria’s transition to whatever comes next. Assad has limited options: — He can cut a deal and hope to escape to exile to Moscow or Tehran with his life; almost anywhere else, he would be trailed by war crimes investigators. — He can continue pounding rebels and Sunni neighborhoods with his tanks and helicopter gunships, though his four top generals were assassinated last week, other officers are deserting by the dozen, homemade bombs are killing an increasing number of his troops and his army’s largely Sunni rank and file doesn’t like him very much. — He can start a wider war and choose martyrdom, though few in his grieving nation would mourn him. Assad is a sophisticated man, a Britisheducated ophthalmologist. When he became Syria’s president in 2000 following the death of his father, the longtime dictator Hafez alAssad, there were hopes that he would modernize the nation. Instead, he reinforced Syria’s reputation as a garrison state, a sponsor of international terrorism, a Russian client nation and an ally of the Shiite mullahs in Iran. A wiser man would have realized that the Arab Spring that began in early 2011 eventually would spell his doom. The numbers were against him. A member of Shia Islam’s Allawite sect, Assad rules a nation that is 75 percent Sunni Muslim. He assumed that his 330,000-man army and air force, armed to the teeth with Russian weapons, could maintain control. For 17 months Assad’s military gunned down his own people. The death toll is reliably estimated at 17,000. The number of refugees who have fled to Jordan, Turkey and Lebanon exceeds 200,000. This is manmade catastrophe created by one man. However he goes, it is long past time. He should had taken the deal offered by Kofi Annan, the former United Nations’ secretary general who is acting as a U.N. special representative. It boiled down to this: Just stop killing your own people and we’ll work it out so that you can stay. Before Assad goes, as he must, he could use his chemical weapons stockpile against his own people, or hand them over to Hezbollah, his terrorist allies. He could launch an attack on Israel to change the subject, creating a cataclysm. The United Nations can’t stop this — a Russian and Chinese veto in the Security Council last week saw to that. Diplomatic efforts should focus on convincing Russian President Vladimir Putin that if wants to be seen as a hero, he should invite Assad to Moscow and keep him there. If necessary, in the Lubyanka. Guest Editorial The St. Louis Post-Dispatch DEAR DOCTOR K: I’m bothered by numbness and tingling in my little finger and general weakness in my right hand. Could I have carpal tunnel syndrome? DEAR READER: Based on your description, I’d say you have cubital (not carpal) tunnel syndrome. Another name for this condition is ulnar neuropathy. Cubital tunnel syndrome, like carpal tunnel syndrome, is a “pinched nerve” problem. The affected nerve is the ulnar nerve. That nerve starts in your neck, enters your ar m, and passes through the inner side of your elbow (behind your funny bone) on its way to your hand. In fact, when you hit your funny bone and feel a shooting pain down your ar m and into the hand, it’s because you hit the ulnar nerve,

Irrational infatuation with biofuels RICHARD W. RAHN CATO INSTITUTE

Are you upset about rapidly rising food costs and high gas prices? You can thank members of Congress and the administration for this situation. Much of the United States is in the midst of a major drought. That’s not the fault of the political class, but those folks have made the consequences of the drought far worse for the entire world. First, the facts: Corn and soybeans are the biggest U.S. grain crops and are used in many of the foods that almost



not the bony cradle that the nerve passes through. The ulnar nerve passes through a tunnel made of fibers (the cubital tunnel) en route to your hand. If the tunnel gets narrow, it puts pressure on the nerve. This pressure causes numbness, tingling, weakness or pain in your ring finger or little finger. (In contrast, the more common carpal

everyone consumes each day. Congress subsidized and mandated the use of ethanol in motor fuel. Currently, about 40 percent of the U.S. corn crop is used in the production of ethanol. Cor n prices rose as a result of the government creating an artificial, additional demand. As a result of higher corn prices, many farmers grew more corn and fewer other crops, such as wheat, which, in tur n, caused the prices of those other crops to rise because of lower production. The drought is resulting in a much smaller corn crop, but

tunnel syndrome af fects the thumb, index and middle fingers.) Cubital tunnel syndrome can also cause your hands to become weak and clumsy. Tasks that require you to extend and flex your elbow repeatedly can irritate and inflame the ulnar nerve. Leaning or resting on your elbow for long periods can also put pressure on the nerve; so can holding a phone to your ear for longer periods each day. Sleeping with bent elbows may also aggravate the problem. The most effective way to treat cubital tunnel syndrome is to change the actions that may have triggered the problem. For instance, switch to a headset-style phone and remove armrests from your office chair. Avoid leaning on your elbow while driving or when

by law, much of the remaining corn must be used to produce ethanol, resulting in even higher prices for corn, which reached a record high last week. Higher corn prices drive up the price for other grains that are af fected by the drought, resulting in higher prices for almost all grains. Corn and other grains also are used to feed animals. This means it is more costly to produce meat, which, in turn, will cause meat prices to rise rapidly. The price of corn is roughly the same throughout the world, and the same goes for

seated. Also avoid keeping your elbow flexed more than 90 degrees, or repeatedly bending and straightening your elbow. Try sleeping on your side with a pillow supporting the entire length of your arm. Try wrapping a towel around your elbow or wearing a splint at night to keep it straight while you sleep. If you can’t avoid bumping your elbow and causing pain several times a day, try wearing a soft elbow pad to protect the nerve against such trauma. Medications to reduce swelling may help.

other grains. The United States is by far the world’s largest corn and food producer and exporter, accounting for about 40 percent of the world’s total. When U.S. prices rise, so do prices for everyone else in the world. People in poor countries spend as much as three-quarters of their income on food, so a rise in food prices can cause real misery and near starvation. Low-income people in the United States also spend a much higher percentage of their income on food,

Play it safe by treating head injuries promptly Roswell Daily Record


Each year, traumatic brain injuries contribute to a substantial number of deaths and cases of permanent disability. Data shows that, on average, approximately 1.7 million people sustain a traumatic brain injury annually. A TBI is caused by a bump, blow or jolt to the head or a penetrating head injury that disrupts normal brain function. Not all blows or jolts to the head result in a TBI. The degree of seriousness can range from “mild,” which causes a brief change in mental status or consciousness, to “severe,” which results in an extended period of unconsciousness or possibly, amnesia. A concussion is a type of TBI that also occurs from a fall or a blow to the body that causes the head and brain to move quickly back and forth. Although a concussion may be described as a “mild” TBI because it’s usually not life-threatening, a concussion should not be taken lightly; long-ter m effects can often lead to significant abnor mality in brain function. Concussions often occur during sports or recreation activities. The number of

youth sports-related TBIs has increased 60 percent in young athletes, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Bicycling, football, and activities playground account for the greatest increase. Because you can’t see a concussion, some athletes may not experience or report symptoms until hours or days after the injury. Although most people with a concussion recover quickly and fully, for others, the signs and symptoms of concussion can last for days, weeks, or longer. A person who experiences any of the following signs and symptoms after a bump, blow, or jolt to the head or body should be examined immediately by a health care professional with experience evaluating concussions and head injuries: •Appears dazed, stunned or sluggish; forgets an instruction •Answers questions slowly •Loses consciousness (even briefly) •Shows mood, behavior, or personality changes •Can’t recall events prior to or after a hit or fall •Has a headache, nausea or vomiting; dizziness; double or blurry vision; sensitivity to light or to noise

The leading causes of TBI are falls (35.2 percent), especially among children age under the age of 4, and older adults age 75 and older; motor vehicle accidents (17.3 percent); struck by/against events (16.5 percent); and assaults (10 percent).

People age 75 years and older have the highest rates of TBI-related hospitalizations and death. For these individuals, doctors suggest regular exercise, focusing on increasing leg


strength and improving balance; a frequent review of medications by their doctor or pharmacist to identify medicines that may cause side effects or interactions such as dizziness; have their eyes checked by an eye doctor at least once a year; make their homes safer by reducing tripping hazards, adding grab bars inside and outside the tub or shower and next to the toilet, adding stair railings and improving lighting in their homes. For all ages, there are many ways to reduce the chances of a concussion or other form of TBI, including: •Buckle your child in the car using a height, weight and age-appropriate safety seat. •Wear a seat belt every time you drive or ride in a motor vehicle. •Never drive while under the influence of alcohol or drugs. •Wear a helmet and make sure your children wear helmets when participating

A non-fatal, severe TBI may result in an extended period of unconsciousness (coma) or amnesia. A TBI may lead to a wide range of short- or long-term issues affecting: cognitive function (e.g., attention and memory); motor function (e.g., extremity weakness, impaired coordination and balance); sensation (e.g., hearing, vision, impaired perception and touch); and/or emotion (e.g., depression, anxiety, aggression, personality changes).

and a rise in food prices causes them more misery than the more affluent. The argument for mandating ethanol in motor fuel was to help make the United States energy-independent and reduce carbon-dioxide emissions. Now the inconvenient facts: Recent studies show that the total carbon-dioxide emissions from growing, harvesting, processing and burning corn as ethanol are much greater than those from oil and gas production and use. Ethanol reduces gas mileage in cars because it is less energy-dense than gasoline, and it causes more wear and tear on engines. And without subsidies, ethanol is more costly than oil and gas. New emerging fracking technology and other oil and gas production techniques, as well as recent major discoveries, mean North America could quickly become totally energy-independent (a questionable goal in itself, but that is the subject for another column) if it were not for unreasonable delays and other restrictions on production by the federal government. Politicians fail or do not wish to understand that both food and energy markets are caloric markets. The chairman of Nestle, the world’s largest food company, Peter Brabeck-Letmathe, notes, “The only difference is that with the food market you need 2,500 calories per person per day, whereas in the energy market you need 50,000 calories per person.” He adds: “Most of the world’s sugar production now goes into making biofuels. It takes about 4,600 liters of water to produce one liter of pure ethane oil if it comes from sugar.” The basic

The key is to promote a safe environment for children and adults to prevent head injuries from occurring. In addition, if you have a child who plays sports, make sure the team coach has a basic understanding of concussions and TBIs.

point is that it is economic madness to be using large amounts of what could be food and massive amounts of water to produce relatively little biofuel when the world is awash in much cheaper oil and gas if only it were allowed to be produced. So when you turn on your TV news and see very hungry people in poor countries, food riots in Europe and the Middle East, and Americans getting upset and suffering from high food prices and unnecessarily high energy prices, you should remember that the real villains in this global tragedy are the members of Congress and politicians in other countries who voted for these insane policies. But wait, it is likely to get worse. Already, members of the Obama administration and some in Congress have been threatening food producers and sellers with price controls. Price controls have failed nearly every time they have been tried for the past 2,000 years, but some never learn. Everyone who takes a basic course in economics should learn that lower prices tend to increase both supply and demand and higher prices tend to reduce them. Responsible, knowledgeable and caring members of the political class will act to remove the ethanol and other biofuel mandates and act to remove the restrictions on oil and gas production that do not meet reasonable cost-benefit tests. If they do so, food and gas prices will fall, and if they do not, there may be enough wise voters to remove those irresponsible politicians from office. Richard W.

Let's catch these criminals... and pick up a few bucks too!

All law enforcement agencies have some priority cases. The Roswell Police Department, Chaves County Sheriff's Office, the Probation and Parole Department, and other police agencies each have some wanted individuals who they would love to catch and place in the arms of justice! Here in Chaves County and in Roswell, the Chaves County Crime Stoppers organization is delighted to play a role in getting some of these folks off the streets of our town. But you, the citizens of our community, have to help make that happen.

In addition to Mannatt, former congresswoman and GOP U.S. Senate candidate Heather Wilson spoke at the Roswell event, hosted at the Volunteer Center, 1400 W. Second St. Wilson, who previously owned a small business in Albuquerque, protested Obama’s desire to curtail the Bush-era tax cuts for Americans making more than $250,000 annually. Citing an Ernst & Young study, Wilson said, “That tax increase alone here in New Mexico would result in another 4,300 lost jobs. If you want to kill job creation in America then you increase taxes on small businesses that are the engine of economic growth in America.

RPD spokeswoman Sabrina Morales said that the exercise officially began 10 days ago in Santa Fe. NMDHSEM started planning the Operation Aztec in January. The National Guard spearheaded the local operation. Much of the effort was coordinated by RPD’s Capt. Tom Moody and Roswell Emergency Manager Teresa Barncastle. The exercise was designed to be part of an ongoing situation of a terrorist-type threat that starts with an outbreak of disease in Santa Fe. Subsequent efforts are directed at quelling the theoretical spread of a pathogen. In Roswell, the various agencies practiced three different scenarios. In the first exercise, the RPD was called to the 700 block of North Garden Avenue following a

She indicated she would vote to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, and the need for a balanced, long-term energy plan for the country. In a phone interview, State senator and smallbusiness owner Linda Lopez, D-Bernalillo, said the Romney campaign is distorting the president’s comments, taking them out of context. “It’s not being honest.” Lopez said Obama is the best candidate to serve the needs of small businesses. “He’s invested about $2 billion in the small business administration, (and that led to) increasing small business loans so that entreprenuers can have resources that we need to build our dreams. The economy of our country, even here in our state of New Mexico, is built by small businesses. Small business have always been the crux of who we are as a country and I believe the president’s movement forward is the right way to go,” she said.

The RPD subsequently called both the Roswell Fire Department and the New Mexico State Police to the scene to deal with the potential biohazard and threat of explosion. The second exercise consisted of the theft of a small plane from the airport. In the third, authorities were dispatched to stop a riot at Roswell International Air Center. “This is huge. There are so many dif ferent agencies involved. Our patrol people didn’t even know when it was going to start until this morning,” said Morales. The operation will help to identify weaknesses in the responses of the state, federal and local entities. The information acquired will direct future training, and assist of ficials to develop and refine standard operating procedures. DHSEM Secretary Greg Myers expressed his thanks to all of the participating agencies. “It is important to continuously be testing and enhancing our capabilities as a state with [our] local and federal partners.” The final evaluation took place after the last exercise, but according to Morales, the initial assessment was that Roswell’s portion of “Operation Aztec went very well.” Similar exercises have taken place or will be taking place in Socorro, Las Cruces, Estancia, Deming, Santa Fe and Albuquerque.

grow from 25 to 97. He said the program was also able to help four of its students obtain certificates from the main campus. The program has attracted students from several states in the U.S. and even graduated two international students this year. Stover said this is due in large part to the rarity of program itself. “We’ve gotten a variety of students from dif ferent states,” he said. “We’re known as the option for students in the Southwest because there’s only five programs in the country like ours.” Stover noted the class of 2012’s camaraderie and how over the course of the year, they grew to call each other college brothers and sisters. He had the opportunity to hang out with many of them and described the experience of gaining their trust and getting to know them as individuals as “very rewarding.” Webb agreed that the graduating class was a joy to be around and said her favorite part of interacting with the students, was watching them adapt to their new surroundings and develop new skills. “My favorite part of being with them is seeing them grow,” she said. “They come here scared and shy and they’re thousands of miles away from home and they do an awesome job.

But Garcia said the ranking, which is based on 16 indicators of child well-being, shows “it is important to not look at a student’s academic achievement in isolation, but rather we must work together as New Mexicans to comprehensively address the issues that affect educational outcomes and the economic well-being of our state.” In 2011, New Mexico ranked 46 out of the 50 states.

they’re employable and ready to make it on their own.” Veterinary Assistant Stacy Deitrich echoed those sentiments and said she, too, enjoyed watching her students learn and grow. She has watched the number of students in her department grow as well. In 2011, there were only eight graduates, this year three times as many students walked across the stage to receive their certificates. She attributes community involvement with much of the success and growth of the department. I think a lot of it is the support,” she said. “The community being willing to open their doors so students can get hands-on training.” She added, “this has probably been one of the best groups I’ve had.” She was recognized for her efforts during the ceremony as veterinary assistant graduate Elizabeth Vital made an impromptu speech thanking Deitrich for her support throughout the year. The Class of 2012 is the largest class in the program’s history and graduates will work in industries such as animal health care, auto mechanics, child care, floral design, refrigeration and air conditioning, office skills, sanitations/ maintenance/grounds keeping, stocking and merchandise and veterinary assistants.

exposed to higher taxes next year under the Democratic bill. But such taxpayers account for 53 percent of reported business income on those returns. Wednesday’s Senate vote also highlighted how both parties see the tax issue as a winning one: Democrats because they think it makes the GOP look like defenders of the rich, Republicans because they think it shows Democrats don’t care about businesses. Republicans were hoping that several Democrats seeking re-election would hurt their candidacies by having backed the Democratic package. The bill would dramatically boost the estate tax, which would be widely unpopular in farming, ranching and high cost-of-living states, and increase levies on dividends and capital gains, which are relied on by many elderly people. Under the Democratic measure, individuals earning more than $200,000 and couples making at least $250,000 would see their top rates on those earnings rise from 33 percent and 35 percent today to 36 percent and 39.6 per-

cent in January. That increase would affect 2.5 million households, or 2 percent of all 140.5 million tax returns, according to 2009 Internal Revenue Service statistics. The White House said that if the tax cuts were not continued, middle class families would face average tax increases next year of $1,600. It also said that the GOP bill would grant tax reductions averaging $160,000 to households where income exceeds $1 million annually. The Democratic bill would also boost the top tax rate paid by people who inherit estates to 55 percent, exempting the first $1 million in an estate’s value. The GOP measure would maintain today’s 35 percent top rate and would not tax the first $5.12 million of an estate’s value. Democrats would impose top tax rates next year of 20 percent on dividends and capital gains, two sources of income enjoyed disproportionately by the wealthy. The GOP top rate would be 15 percent. The GOP bill ignores some tax credits for lowand middle-income families that Democrats want to extend for college costs; for some low-income couples and large working families; and for families with children. final jump is expected to go supersonic within the first 34 seconds of his freefall, traveling at speeds as high as 790 mph. If successful, Baumgartner would become the first person to break the speed of sound without the protection of an aircraft. According to the Red Bull Stratos website, the date for the final jump is now subject to weather and post-jump assessments of the capsule and equipment. Wednesday’s test flight took Baumgartner just 6,160 feet short of the record jump of 102,800 feet, which was set by Col. Joe Kittinger in 1960 for the Air Force research program Project Excelsior. The leap took Baumgartner past Russia’s Eugene Andreev, who jumped from an altitude of 83,523 feet in 1962.

Roswell Daily Record

GLASGOW, Scotland (AP) — Twice, Hope Solo str etched to her left to stop the ball. Twice, she couldn’t quite reach it. Bang! Boom! Two quick shots, and the U.S. women’s soccer team had an early hole at the start of the quest for a thir d consecutive Olympic gold medal. Fortunately for the Americans, they have firepower like no other squad in the world, enough to overcome such a deficit and take control, beating France 4-2 Wednesday as they opened their London Games far from London. Weren’t aware that the Olympics wer e alr eady under way? There’s nothing like a come-fr om-

behind win to make people notice. “There’s a lot of other sports going on,” deadpanned midfielder Megan Rapinoe. “So we have to catch the attention early.” They did so not only by falling behind, but by finding four dynamic ways to scor e goals. Abby Wambach used her size and strength to head in a corner kick, speedy Alex Morgan raced ahead to chip one over the goalkeeper, Carli Lloyd nailed a 25-yar d r ocket, and Morgan cashed in with a simple tap-in after a nice run from Tobin Heath. “I think there was a lot of nerves and stuff going on in those first minutes,” defender Rachel Buehler


said. “And we got ’em out. It probably went as bad as it could — and then we wer e able to tur n it around.” Soccer always starts early at the Olympics in order to have time to play a full tour nament of games. In this case, the Americans wer e on the field two days before the opening cer emony and 400-plus miles from the British capital. And they knew that an early stumble wouldn’t be the end of the world. The U.S. gave up two goals in the first four minutes to open the last Olympics in China, losing to 2-0 to Norway. The Americans r ebounded to win their final five matches and

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Cole Hamels knew the moment he walked off the mound to a standing ovation after allowing five runs in his last start that he was staying with the Philadelphia Phillies. “Words can’t really describe the emotions that you get, and the way the fans were standing and cheering, that was ultimately the deciding point to be here,” Hamels said. He had $144 million other reasons to stay, too. Hamels on Wednesday signed a six-year contract worth an average of $24 million per season that prevents the 2008 World Series MVP from becoming a free agent in November. The deal includes a club vesting option for 2019 and a limited no-trade provision. The contract is the largest signed by a Philadelphia athlete and second-highest for a pitcher behind the $161 million, seven-year deal the New York Yankees gave CC Sabathia in December 2008. “It was long and laborious,” general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. said about negotiations, which started last May. “We finally got to the finish line. (Six years) is unprecedented for the Phillies, but we did it with the right person.” The 28-year-old Hamels becomes the third Phillies starter making $20 million per season, joining Roy Halladay and Cliff Lee. A three-time All-Star, Hamels passed up an opportunity to possibly get more money on the open market to stay with the team that drafted him in 2002. “I wanted to give the Phillies every opportunity,” Hamels said. “It’s very hard to leave a place that you’ve had so many great memories. You don’t want to miss it and not be a part of it. I know the organization has always done a good job of going out to win. We have great players here. You don’t want to have to leave that or stray away and see them win and you’re not part of it. “I understand that free agency is great, those opportunities of the unknowing. But this is the place that I call home and want to call home for a really long time. I grew up watching Tony Gwynn play and he made San Diego his home for his entire career. That’s ultimately what I want to make here in Philadelphia.” Hamels is 11-4 with a 3.23 ERA this season. The lanky lefty is 85-58 with a 3.38 ERA in seven years in Philadelphia.

take the gold. “After 2-0, I thought about China,” coach Pia Sundhage said. “We’ve been there before and we came back. If you look at the whole tournament in China, we won the gold medal. Now this team is better than 2008. We came back in the game.” While the Americans are favored to take the title again — and even though the U.S. is now 13-0-1 alltime against France — it was hardly a surprise to see the French make it a game. The teams were tied

Still, the Americans allowed more goals in the first handful of minutes Wednesday than they had allowed in any game since the World Cup final loss to Japan.

Broncos report to camp, hope to provide healing ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — The Denver Broncos reported to camp Wednesday hoping to lift the spirits of a community in mourning over the movie theater massacre in neighboring Aurora. Several players visited hospitalized survivors and medical personnel in the days after a gunman in full body armor opened fire during the midnight premiere of the new Batman movie, leaving 12 dead and 58 injured. Coach John Fox said the Broncos will do what they can to provide a measure of comfort to a heavy-hearted community, a role he’s familiar with from his time with the New York Giants during the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. “Well, we’re going to do our absolute best and we understand the responsibility that comes with

being in the Broncos organization,” Fox said. “This region, city, state has great passion for the team, there’s no doubt. I think our players will feel that responsibility and it’s something that we’ll talk about most definitely later today in our team meeting. “I was in New York when 9-11 occurred and a lot of the victims really looked to us and (now, others) will look to us here in Denver, for some uplifting times.” Quarterback Peyton Manning called eight of the wounded Sunday and Monday while a dozen of his teammates, decked out in

first practice with team

IRVING, Texas (AP) — Morris Claiborne was wide awake in bed at six o’clock in the morning. The first-round draft pick of the Dallas Cowboys couldn’t sleep. Claiborne had been forced to watch and wait during spring workouts, sidelined because of surgery before the draft to repair ligament damage in his left wrist. With a $16.4 million, four-year contract and his wrist finally healthy, Claiborne was finally on the field Wednesday with his new team during a practice for rookies and selected veterans. Training camp begins in Oxnard, Calif., next week. “It feels good,” the 22-year-old All-American cornerback from LSU said about practicing at Valley Ranch. “I was ready to get out here.” Claiborne acknowledged that he needed to practice. He fumbled the ball during a hands drill and stood with his hands on his hips to catch his breath between drills. Dallas traded up eight spots and lost its second-round pick in April to get Claiborne, who went No. 6 overall. See DALLAS, Page B2

holes in a supposedly impenetrable defense — a potential cause for U.S. concern as the grueling tournament progresses. “It’s not the game we wanted to play,” defender and captain Christie Rampone said. “But we’ve got a lot of games ahead of us to try and get our rhythm back.” Another concer n for the Americans: Midfielder Shannon Boxx left in the first half with a hamstring injury and is day-today. “Magic things could happen after a good sleep,” Sundhage said. “So we’ll just wait and see.” Regardless, other teams in the tournament will surely take notice at how the Americans roared back against the French. Wambach in the 19th. Morgan in the 32nd. Lloyd in the 56th. Morgan again in the 66th.

Some of those same players had gathered a few weeks ago to honor the firefighters who were battling Colorado’s deadly wildfires that destroyed hundreds of homes. “Well, for some negative things that do happen to occur, our guys do a whole lot of good and that was part of that, whether it was the fires or this recent tragedy,” Fox said. “I’m very proud of them. They were out there, they want to give back and they want to somehow lift the spirits.” Among the players making visits to hospitals in recent days was Pro Bowl

be kicking themselves because they had a really good opportunity to keep the United States at bay. Going up two goals against us is quite a feat, in my opinion, and I think the fact we kind of grinded it out, came back and had four unanswered goals, I think that’s demoralizing for any opponent, truthfully.” The United States plays Colombia in its second group game on Saturday. France will face North Korea. The French took the lead on a deflected long ball that ended up at the foot of Thiney, who had plenty of space to unleash a 22-yard shot that grazed the fingertips of Solo. Two minutes later, the Americans played a dangerous game of pinball deep in their own end, failing in five separate chances to clear a cor ner kick. Inevitably, the ball bounced to Delie, who put the easy shot past Solo to make it 2-0. It wasn’t long, however, before Wambach started the comeback by heading in Rapinoe’s corner kick. The goal awakened a crowd that so far had behaved as if watching a BBC documentary. Chants of “U-S-A!” began to echo in sections of Hampden Park, the 109-year -old landmark that serves as Scotland's national stadium. The 52,000-seat stadium was perhaps one-third full at kickoff — attendance was announced at 18,090 — but the game needed to draw only a couple of

Organizers gave away some 30,000 tickets to schools and local clubs to keep the stands fr om being embarrassingly empty in a region where soccer is overwhelmingly a man’s game. The American fans who made the trip had their enthusiasm rewarded again when Solo got an assist when her long ball was chased down on the first bounce by Morgan, who nudged it over goalkeeper Sarah Bouhaddi to tie the score. Sundhage said her team is so deep that games will be won by her subs, and it was Lloyd — previously a starter for much of her career — who came on for Boxx and hit a tiebreaker that was never in doubt, a blast that left Bouhaddi helpless as it found the left side of the net. Heath helped make the margin a comfortable one with a long run down the left side deep into the penalty ar ea befor e running into interference. The ball slid over to Morgan, who merely had to tap it in for the game's final goal. “Sur e, we want to keep a clean sheet as much as possible,” Rampone said. “But right now the most important thing is winning games.

in a situation like that as an organization,” Fox said. “Like any situation you’re involved in, you have to gather the information, find out to the best you can the facts and then let the process run itself and the truth eventually comes out.” The Broncos already are preparing for the extended absence of linebacker D.J. Williams, their top tackler, who is facing a six-game drug suspension and a drunken driving trial next month that could sideline him even longer. “I think it weighs a little bit heavier on the fans’ minds because looking at those guys, they’re starters, they are key players,” cor nerback T racy Porter said. “It weighs on our minds, too. But we also have the confidence in the guys that back them up at the posi-

He joined the Broncos in March after 14 seasons in Indianapolis. The Colts released him after he missed all of last year with a nerve injury in his neck that caused weakness in his throwing arm. They replaced him with No. 1 overall draft pick Andrew Luck. The league’s only fourtime MVP has looked good in offseason workouts at Dove Valley, but questions facing him and the Broncos are how he’ll hold up at age 36 and whether he’ll be the same player he was before he got hurt and needed four neck operations, including a fusion.

New Tonto, familiar feelings for Native Americans Roswell Daily Record

Johnny Depp as Tonto, a spirit warrior on a personal quest, and Armie Hammer as John Reid, a lawman who has become a masked avenger in Disney’s Lone Ranger, scheduled for release next summer.

SEATTLE (AP) — Gyasi Ross grew up decades after the “Lone Ranger” aired on TV, but his friends would still call him “Tonto” when they teased him.

“Everybody understands who Tonto is, even if we hadn’t seen the show, and we understood it wasn’t a good thing,” said Ross, a member of the Blackfeet Nation in Montana who lives and has family in the Suquamish Tribe, outside Seattle. “Why else would you tease someone with that?”

The making of a new Lone Ranger Disney movie, and the announcement that Johnny Depp is playing sidekick Tonto, have reawakened feelings about a character that has drawn much criticism over the years as being a Hollywood creation guilty of spreading stereotypes.

The film is still in production, but Native American groups have been abuzz about it for months, with many sharing opinions online and in a national Native publication run-

Chad Everett, 75

With a career spanning more than 40 years, Everett guest starred on such TV series as “The Love Boat,” “Murder, She Wrote” and “Without a T race.” Everett most recently appeared on the TV shows “Castle” and “Supernatural,” where he appeared as an older version of Jensen Ackles’ character Dean Winchester.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Chad Everett, the blueeyed star of the 1970s TV series “Medical Center” who went on to appear in such films and TV shows as “Mulholland Drive” and “Melrose Place,” has died. He was 75. Everett’s daughter, Katherine Thorp, said he died Tuesday at his home in Los Angeles after a year-and-a-halflong battle with lung cancer. Everett played sensitive surgeon Joe Gannon for seven seasons on “Medical Center.” The role earned him Golden Globe nominations in 1971 and 1973.

ning an occasional series on the topic. Some Native Americans welcome the new movie, slated for release next summer. Parts were filmed on the Navajo Nation with the tribe’s support, and an Oklahoma tribe recently made Depp an honorary member. But for others, the Lone Ranger represents a lingering sore spot — one that goes back to the 1950s television version of Tonto, who spoke in broken English, wore buckskin and lacked any real cultural traits. Depp’s role attracted particular attention in April when producer Jerry Bruckheimer tweeted a picture of the actor in his Tonto costume. He had on black and white face paint, an intense gaze, a black bird attached to his head and plenty of decorative feathers. Native Americans are far from a monolithic group, and many are opening their ar ms to the new movie. Some are just excited to see Depp take the role. In New Mexico, where some of the movie was filmed, the Navajo presented Depp, his co-star Armie Hammer, director Gore Verbinski and Bruckheimer with Pendleton blankets to welcome them to their land.

In perhaps his most memorable recent film role, Everett played a lothario who engages in a steamy audition with a young ingenue portrayed by Naomi Watts in director David Lynch’s “Mulholland Drive.”

Everett is survived by his two daughters, Katherine and Shannon, and six grandchildren. He was married to actress Shelby Grant for 45 years until her death last year.

Sherman Hemsley, Aug. 11, 1986.

EL PASO, Texas (AP) — Sher man Hemsley, the actor who made the irascible, bigoted George Jefferson of “The Jeffersons” one of television’s most memorable characters and a symbol for urban upward mobility, has died. He was 74. Police in El Paso, Texas, said late Tuesday that Hemsley was found dead at a local home where neighbors said he’d lived for years. A statement from police said no foul play is suspected and that the exact cause of death is pending.

Nations member, is by far the most recognized. He spoke in pidgin and was the loyal partner of the crime-fighting ranger, often bailing out the masked avenger from treacherous situations. “Here hat. Me wash in stream. Dry in sun. Make whiter,” Tonto says in an early episode setting up his relationship with the Lone Ranger. “Here gun to kill bad men.” That Tonto has been criticized as being generic and subordinate — a character with no individuality and no life beyond helping the Lone Ranger. Tex Holland, executive director of the 600-member Lone Ranger Fan Club, defended the portrayal. “I felt the Indians had their own language and in doing so, anyone learning the language is going to speak it broken, whether the person is from Japan or Mexico,” Holland said. “I did not look down on him. All of us thought that’s the way the Indians at that time communicated with us. Did we speak Indian fluently? We’d speak it broken it too.” Holland and his fellow fans, however, were taken aback by Depp’s new look. “Yuck. I can’t believe that he’s wearing a crow on his head. And he’s looking like

The Philadelphia-born Hemsley first played the blustering black Harlem businessman on CBS’s “All in the Family” before he was spun off onto “The Jeffersons,” which in 11 seasons from 1975 to 1985 became one of TV’s most successful sitcoms — particularly noteworthy with its mostly black cast. With the gospel-style theme song of “Movin’ On Up,” the hit show depicted the wealthy former neighbors of Archie and Edith Bunker in Queens as they made their way on New York’s Upper East Side. Hemsley and the Jeffersons (Isabel Sanford played his wife) often dealt with contemporary issues of racism, but more frequently reveled in the sitcom archetype of a shorttempered, opinionated patriarch trying, often unsuccessfully to control his family. Hemsley’s feisty, diminutive father with an exaggerated strut was a kind of black corollary to Archie Bunker — a stubbor n, high-strung man who had a deep dislike for whites (his favorite word for them was honkies). Yet unlike the blue-collar Bunker, played by Carroll O’Connor, he was a successful businessman whose was as rich as he

was crass. His wife, Weezie, was often his foil — yet provided plenty of zingers as well. Despite the character’s many faults — moneydriven, prejudiced, temperamental, a boor — Hemsley managed to make the character endearing as well, part of the reason it stayed on the air for so long. His performance was Emmy and Golden Globe nominated. Sher man Alexander Hemsley, though, was far less feisty. The son of a printing press-working father and a factory-working mother, Hemsley served in the Air Force and worked for eight years as a clerk for the Postal Service. Having studied acting as an adolescent at the Philadelphia Academy of Dramatic Arts, he began acting in New York workshops and theater companies, including the Negro Ensemble Company. For years, he kept his job at the post office while acting at night, before transitioning to acting full time. He made his Broadway debut in 1970’s “Purlie,” a musical adaptation of Ossie Davis’ Jim Crow-era play “Purlie Victorious.” (Hemsley would later star in a 1981 made-for -TV

in South Park Cemetery, with the Rev. Gustavo Castillo officiating. Visitation will be held on Thursday, July 26, 2012, from 8 a.m., until after the services. Juventino “Tino” Alfredo Portillo was born on Jan. 25, 1954, in Chihuahua, Chihuahua, Mexico, to Diego and Maria Benita (Saenz) Portillo. Tino had a great sense of humor and was a great father. Known as a great friend to all who knew him, Tino was always willing to lend a helping hand. He loved his pet poodle, WaWa’s, dearly. Greatly changing his life and knowing Christ was one of Tino’s proudest accomplishments. Salmos 91 was T ino’s favorite Psalm. He became a mentor and brought many lives to Christ. Tino was a father figure to many and a proud professional musician. He and his wife Silvia are founding members of Taber naculo De

Gracia Church along with the Rev. Gustavo Castillo. Being reunited in heaven again with Tino are his parents Diego and Maria Portillo; and brothers, Jose Portillo and Ramon Portillo. Those left to cherish Tino’s memory are his wife Silvia Portillo, of the family home; children, Anthony and his wife Kessia, Rebecca, Diego, Carlitos, Juventino Jr. and his companion Marbella, Jose, Ramon, Maria, Yvonne and her companion Ricardo, and Denise and her companion, Emmanuel; brother Jesus Portillo; sisters, Maria Portillo de Trevizo and Nicolasa Portillo de Dominguez; 17 grandchildren; a greatgrandson; numerous nieces and nephews; and dear friend Fabian Romero; who was always more than a friend, always by his side.

some type of medicine man,” Holland said. “Disney chose (Depp) for one thing: box office draw.” Reportedly costing more than $200 million, plus yet-to-be-added marketing costs, Disney’s Lone Ranger is the type of film that can make or break a studio’s summer. It’s already been plagued with budget woes. The movie’s release date in 2013 was recently pushed back a month. Back on Suquamish land, Ross doesn’t mind having Depp as Tonto. In fact, the 36-year -old said he would have been more troubled had a Native American taken the role, knowing its history. But he’s worried the movie, which certainly will attract a large audience, will cement a stereotype for years to come because Hollywood doesn’t make many movies with Native American protagonists. The popular ones stick in people’s minds. The first Lone Ranger did that, as did Dances with Wolves decades later, said Ross, an attorney who also writes a column for Indian Country Today. “I’m not sure how much redefining I’m going to expect, not sure how much of the movie will be something I can show my son,” he said.

Sherman Hemsley dies at 74

Everett’s films credits included “The Jigsaw Murders,” “The Firechasers” and director Gus Van Sant’s remake of “Psycho.” Everett was born Raymon Lee Cramton in South Bend, Ind., and graduated from Wayne State University in Detroit before moving to Los Angeles and becoming a contract player with MGM.

Elsewhere, the Comanche people of Oklahoma made Depp, one of Hollywood’s most bankable stars, an honorary member. American Indians aren’t the only ones conflicted about the character of Tonto, which means “dumb” in Spanish. For Mexican Americans who grew up in the Southwest, the character draws up memories of one of the first dark-skinned heroes in popular culture and anger over a white man calling a brown-skinned person “dumb,” said Rosa-Linda Fregoso, author of Bronze Screen: Chicana and Chicano Film Culture and a Latino Studies professor at the University of California, Santa Cruz. In fact, Tonto’s character has historically been called “Toro,” which means “bull,” in Spanish-language versions of early films, and Spanish language stories about Depp’s role in the new film refers to his character as “Toro.” Disney representatives declined to comment, but Depp has said the film will be a “sort of rock ‘n’ roll version of the Lone Ranger” with his Tonto offering a dif ferent take from the 1950s show.

version of “Purlie,” as well.) It was while touring the show that Hemsley was approached by Norman Lear about playing a character on the sitcom that would become “All in the Family.” Hemsley joined the show in 1973, immediately catapulting himself from an obscure theater actor to a hit character on the enormously popular show. Two years later, “The Jeffersons” was spun off.

After “The Jeffersons” was abruptly cancelled, Hemsley starred in the sitcom “Amen” as a fiery Philadelphia church deacon, Er nest Frye. The show latest five years, running 1986 to 1991.

Hemsley frequently turned up as a guest on sitcoms like “Family Matters,” “The Hughleys” and even, in a voice role, “Family Guy.” He twice reprised George Jefferson, appearing as his famous character on “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” and, in 2011, on “House of Payne.”

Hemsley, whose films include 1979’s “Love at First Bite,” 1987’s “Stewardess School” and 1987’s “Ghost Fever,” released an album, “Ain’t That a Kick in the Head,” in 1989.

I’m pretending to be supportive because I don’t want to be another woman telling him what to do or stifling his dreams. Inside I am dreading it. I become physically ill when I think of losing another man to music. On the other hand, I can’t imagine my life without him. Should I continue to pretend to support him and hope he fails, or let him know that I don’t want to be with a musician? OUT OF TUNE IN DAYTON, OHIO

Dear Heloise: The best advice I got was from my grandmother. Back then, we did “spring-cleaning” — rolled up the rugs and took them out for a “beating,” cleaned all the windows inside, flipped mattresses and cleaned out cupboards, etc. We would always hear Grandma mumbling under her breath, “You fight dirt all your life, then they bury you in it.” So, I quit “fighting it.” We have so many work-saving hints from your articles that it isn’t necessary anymore. Ginger D. in San Antonio How true! My mother said the same thing: “Clean, dust, scrub, sweep, and the last thing they do is throw a shovelful of dirt in your face!” Heloise



For Better or For Worse



Dear Heloise: I read in your column about a woman who writes on sticky notes the things she needs help with during social events she’s hosting. Her guests can pick from the notes what to help her with. I tried this last weekend, and it worked FABULOUSLY! It made the day so much more enjoyable for me, and my friends actually appreciated being able to help! There’s a downside, though. A couple of gals said that now that I ask for help, I can do these brunches more often! Wendy R., Lake Forest, Calif. Don’t you say to yourself, “Why didn’t I think of that?” Heloise

FINANCIAL Thursday, July 26, 2012 B5 Small Business Majority breaks away from the pack Boeing 2nd quarter net Roswell Daily Record

NEW YORK (AP) — When John Arensmeyer owned a high-tech company, he did not feel that the organizations that lobbied on behalf of small business really represented him — or many other business owners. “They put forth a monolithic view of what small business wants,” says Arensmeyer. “I felt they were overly partisan and overly ideological and didn’t really look pragmatically at what small businesses need. So I felt there was an opportunity and a need for a new voice.” In 2005, Arensmeyer founded Small Business Majority, a group that now has 8,000 business people nationwide in its network. Like other lobbying groups, Small Business Majority takes positions on issues including tax and regulation. But it doesn’t follow the pack. Arensmeyer’s group supported President Barack Obama’s overhaul of the health care system — a stark contrast to the National Federation of Independent Business, which unsuccessfully argued against the law before the Supreme Court. “Policy makers need to listen to different voices because there are a variety of small businesses out there,” Arensmeyer says. “One of the things we’re trying to do is be somewhat of an aggregator of some of those voices.” spoke Arensmeyer recently with The Associated Press. Here are excerpts, edited for clarity and brevity: Q. How is Small Business Majority different from other small business groups? A. Most small-business owners are pragmatic, the vast majority. Some are ideological on the right,

some are ideological on the left. The fact is, most smallbusiness owners, as I did when I ran my business, get up in the morning and worry about payroll, worry about putting out a good product, worry about their customers, worry about all the bumps in the road. I felt that on many issues, the business organizations took very ideological, sort of blanket positions. For instance, all government is bad, or all government regulation is bad. That’s not the way most small-business owners think. Q. When you say that small-business owners don’t take blanket positions, how do you know that? A. We’ve done extensive polling over the last five, six, seven years. When I started the business, it was a feeling I had but it’s been validated by polling. Q. What did you see in the health care law that made you support it? A. The starting point is that the existing system is completely broken, so it’s hard to imagine anything worse than the status quo. That’s an important start-

ing point because you have to be open to look at a variety of different solutions. We know that cost is the biggest consideration for small businesses. And so we were obviously looking for ways that the law could bring down costs, whether it was something specific for small businesses like tax credits, or the health insurance exchanges, which will enable small businesses to have the same kind of bargaining power as big businesses and offer their employees the same level of choice. Small businesses pay 18 percent more than big businesses for the same coverage. Q. What is another issue that Small Business Majority has a different stand on? A. Another example is clean energy. Clean energy is a huge economic engine for this country, for big and small businesses, and yet the policies that certain groups push seem to be supported only by traditional fossil fuel companies — not even all big businesses, much less any small businesses. So again,

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The federal government is projecting the record drought gripping half the U.S. will help push food prices up by 3 percent to 4 percent next year. Figures released by the

U.S. Department of Agriculture on Wednesday show that beef prices are expected to see the biggest jump at 4 percent to 5 percent. Dairy product prices are expected to climb 3.5 percent to 4.5 percent. And

poultry prices are expected to rise 3 percent to 4 percent. USDA economist Richard Volpe says these are the agency’s first food price projections to factor in the drought. Cor n, soybean

income up; raises outlook

it was an example of groups stating a business position, calling it good for small business, and really only reflecting a narrow segment of the big business community. Q. Who would be better for business, Romney or Obama?

A. We don’t take a position on any campaign. We have, generally speaking, been pleased with the Obama’s administration’s focus on some key issues that we think are important for small business, like getting the health care law passed, like having a very robust clean energy focus and an economic plan. Like, the fact that he is focused on small business needs with various tax cuts, 18 that he cites, for small business. Generally, I think the Small Business Administration is functioning well today — but the SBA is not the solution for every small business owner.

percent, while revenue in the commercial airplane division jumped 34 percent.

NEW YORK (AP) — Boeing Co. posted a surprise improvement in second-quarter net income Wednesday as demand for passenger jets thrived and its defense business held its own. The maker of the 737 aircraft and F-18 fighter jets also raised its earnings forecast for the year, suggesting demand for new planes could insulate it from the sluggish global economic environment. Boeing’s 3-percent profit increase handily beat forecasts from Wall Street analysts, who worried that sales in Boeing’s defense unit would fall amid lower defense spending in the U.S. and Europe. Boeing said that it was reining in costs to prevent revenue in the segment that produces Chinook helicopters and F-18s from being hit. Boeing, which is based in Chicago, reported net income of $967 million, or $1.27 per share, for the April-June period compared with $941 million, or $1.25 per share, a year earlier. Revenue jumped 21 percent to $20 billion from $16.54 billion a year ago. Defense revenue rose 7

Q. From your vantage point, what are business owners’ biggest concerns?

A. We’ve asked this question in national and state polls for the last couple of years. Costs and the lack of customers always rank up there in the high 30 percent and 40 percent range. We ask them to name their top two concerns. Taxes and regulations are much less of a concern. Regulations have come in 13, 14, 16 percent. We’re not saying that small businesses don’t care about regulation, and obviously, some businesses care about them more than others. Small businesses are much more concerned about their customers and about having enough money flowing in the economy to buy their products and services.

Boeing’s defense unit is vulnerable to potentially severe military spending cuts in January. The cuts will be automatic unless Congress agrees to alternatives for cutting the deficit. The military would face $492 billion in cuts over a decade, with domestic spending reduced by another $492 billion over 10 years. Boeing’s commercial airplane unit, meanwhile, is speeding production and deliveries of its new 787. That will move planes that have been mostly finished, but undelivered, out of inventory and turn them into cash. Boeing is also booking firm orders for its new 737 Max, a redesigned version of the model.

For all of 2012, Boeing Co. now expects to earn $4.40 to $4.60 per share, up from a previous forecast of $4.15 to $4.35 per share. Analysts estimate full-year ear nings of $4.57 per share.

Organizers display SKorea flag instead of NKorea

GLASGOW, Scotland (AP) — London Olympic organizers mistakenly displayed the South Korean flag on a jumbo screen instead of North Korea’s before a women’s soccer match Wednesday, prompting the North Koreans to refuse to take the field for nearly an hour. The flag flap began during player introductions when a North Korean player was introduced along with a shot of the South Korean flag. The match against Colombia was delayed for more than an hour, and organizers apologized for the error. “If this matter couldn’t have been resolved, then I thought going on is nonsense,” coach Sin Ui Gun said through an interpreter after North Korea won 2-0. “We were angry because our players were introduced as if they were from South Korea, which may affect us very greatly as you might know.” The coach said the organizers corrected the mix-up, although it took some time. Large images of the North Korea flag were put up on both stadium jumbo screens during the delay and the players finally came out. The team manager refused to have the coach respond to a question of what North

Korea leader Kim Jong Un’s reaction would have been to the incident. The London organizers took the blame. “Today ahead of the women’s football match at Hampden Park, the South Korean flag was shown on a big screen video package instead of the North Korean flag. Clearly that is a mistake,” organizers said. “We will apologize to the team and the National Olympic Committee and steps will be taken to ensure this does not happen again.” The statement, however, included another gaffe: It failed to refer to the countries by their official Olympic names, causing organizers to reissue the statement using “Republic of Korea” and “Democratic People’s Republic of Korea.” Commenting on the flap, the International Olympic Committee pointed to London officials. “It’s a matter for the organizers,” IOC spokesman Mark Adams said. The players walked past reporters after the match still in uniform without stopping. Two were carrying flags — the correct North Korean one. North Korea and South Korea are bitter rivals. The flag mix-up comes amid high tension on the Korean Peninsula following a North Korean long-range rocket launch in

Roswell Daily Record

April and repeated threats by Pyongyang to attack the South. Seoul and the U.S. have called the launch a cover for a test of banned long-range missile technology. North Korea says the rocket, which broke apart shortly after liftoff, was meant to put a satellite into orbit. Wednesday’s match started 1 hour, 5 minutes late. Fans were confused at first, then turned to doing the wave and finally started booing as they became increasingly restless. An announcement was eventually made over the public address system about 20 minutes after the scheduled 7:45 p.m. (1845 GMT; 2:45 p.m. EDT) kick off, apologizing for the delay and saying it “was due to an issue behind the scenes. We’re trying to resolve it and we’ll keep you updated.” To pass more time, music was pumped from the speakers. Players from both teams finally emerged onto the field about 40 minutes after the match was supposed to begin. The players warmed up again for 10 minutes before they returned inside the tunnel to be led out again for the national anthems. “It was very difficult after the incident,” Colombia coach Ricardo Rozo said. “We had to wait and warm up again. It affected the mood because we were ready for the match. “I’ve never had anything happen like this

before, where a country can delay a match for an hour.” Flag controversies aren’t new at the Olympics. At the 1992 Barcelona Games, Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson and Charles Barkley from the Dream Team draped U.S. flags over their shoulders to hide a rival sponsor’s logo on their jackets when they received their gold medals. At the 2010 Vancouver Games, the Australians displayed a flag with a boxing kangaroo — the mascot for the country’s team — in the athletes village, despite an International Olympic Committee rule that usually only permits official national flags to be displayed. The IOC eventually relented. In 2000, sprinter Cathy Freeman caused a stir when she took a victory lap after winning the 400-meter final at the Sydney Games draped in the Aboriginal flag, which was not recognized as an official national flag by the IOC. Also in 2000, North and South Korean athletes marched together at the opening ceremony of the Sydney Olympics under the unified Korea flag, sparking a standing ovation. But with relations deteriorating in the years since, each country insists on a separate flag.
