City crews have been busy preparing for the upcoming school year including Javier Alonso and Mark Tegeda who have been repainting school-crossing zones.

The Roswell International Air Center’s main runway, runway 2103, has not been significantly altered since its construction in 1952. But Roswell officials and the Federal Aviation Administration are considering long-term modifications to the 13,000–foot runway. “They (the FAA) have standards and they have a lot of airports that they’re looking at but we believe that our airport and that particular runway is a huge asset to the aviation system within the United States,” said City Manager Larry Fry. Officials have been discussing how to modify the runway since last November, when city and Air Center officials first held a joint planning conference with users of the RIAC, FAA offi-

GDANSK, Poland (AP) — It wasn’t supposed to be this way. Mitt Romney outraged Palestinians on Monday, telling Jewish donors that their culture is part of what has allowed them to be more economically successful than the Palestinians. That fresh controversy on his visit to Israel came just days after insulting the British on what was intended as a feel-good visit to the Olympics in London. Whether or not the trip changes votes back home, the effect hasn’t seemed to be what Romney’s presidential campaign had in mind. His first steps onto the world stage as President Barack Obama’s Republican challenger were carefully crafted to avoid political risk. He visited countries that are staunch U.S. allies, limited questions from the media and arranged made-for -TV appearances at symbolic venues in London and Jerusalem. It was all intended to demonstrate he was ready to handle foreign

affairs smoothly and lead during dangerous times. Instead, as he made his final stop of a three-nation tour in Poland late Monday, Republicans and Democrats alike were shaking their heads in the U.S. Though Republicans said they saw no lasting harm, Democrats raised questions

about Romney’s ability to handle delicate topics with sensitivity on foreign soil, even under the friendliest conditions. Romney’s latest trouble stemmed from a speech he gave to Jewish donors in

SANTA FE (AP) — Taxpayers must pick up the tab for nearly $3 million in fees for attorneys who represented Democratic, Republican, Native American and Hispanic voter interests in redistricting trials, a New Mexico judge decided Monday. District Judge James Hall’s order covers lawyer fees for six groups that brought lawsuits over revamping political district boundaries for the Legislature, Congress and Public Regulation Commission. Redistricting landed in court last year after Republican Gov. Susana Martinez and the Democratic-controlled Legislature disagreed on how to redraw

district boundaries to adjust for population growth during the past decade. Hall said the groups were entitled to attorney’s fees because they prevailed in parts of the redistricting dispute, but he reduced some fees by 10 percent based on the degree of success the various groups had in the litigation. Hall’s order covers only part of the costs of the redistricting fight. The state has agreed to pay nearly $271,000 for lawyers who represented the Navajo Nation. Taxpayers also must cover the costs of lawyers for Republican Lt. Gov. John Sanchez, Secretary of State

Dianna Duran and a private attorney who represented the governor. The Legislature has paid about $894,000 for lawyers that represented legislative leaders in the redistricting trials as well as an Albuquerque demographic research firm that prepared redistricting maps during the litigation. Hall rejected a suggestion by the governor that the Legislature be required to pay for the attorney’s fees of Democratic-leaning groups in the redistricting fight and that the executive branch should be liable for fees for the Navajos and GOP interests aligned with the governor. Hall denied “the request

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Democratic Party is moving to include support for gay marriage in the official party platform for the first time, a Democratic official said Monday, marking a key milestone for advocates of same-sex unions. The party’s platform drafting committee voted to include language backing gay marriage during a weekend meeting in Minneapolis, the official said. Democratic delegates will formally approve the platfor m during the party convention in Charlotte, N.C., in early September. President Barack Obama will officially accept his party’s nomination at the convention, which marks the start of the fall campaign blitz. Republican rival Mitt Romney will get the GOP nomination a week earlier during his party’s convention in Tampa, Fla.

Seeking to ramp-up enthusiasm among Democrats, party of ficials said Sunday that former President Bill Clinton will deliver the nominating speech on Wednesday night of the convention. Obama and Biden are to speak on Thursday, the convention’s final night. The Obama campaign and convention organizers on Monday announced that Elizabeth Warren, the Democratic Senate candidate in Massachusetts and a popular figure among liberals, will get a featured speaking role. Warren headed the Congressional Oversight Panel for the Troubled Asset Relief Program, the committee that examined the bank bailout. She also was the leading advocate for a consumer financial protection

District judge awards nearly $3 million for the state’s redistricting fees to divide the fees between various defendants because the request itself only reaffirms the ‘us-versus-them’ mentality which pervades our present political environment.” “This request shows that the executive defendants still fail to recognize that the obligation to redistrict the state following the census is a shared responsibility of the Legislature and executive branches. When the legislative and executive branches fail to comply with their legal obligation, all taxpayers bear the financial consequences,” Hall said. The judge also said it would represent a significant expansion of court

powers if he ordered attorney’s fees split between the budgets of different parts of state government.

“In all candor, there is some appeal to the idea that this court has the authority to assess the attorney’s fees against individual defendants, especially in light of this court’s finding that the governor failed to even communicate with multiple Native American tribes during the redistricting process; however, the court resists the temptation to do so because such an expansion of judicial authority is not authorized under law,” said Hall.

SANTA FE (AP) — Citizens have a right to access public records kept by an independent contractor on behalf of state or local governments in New Mexico, the state Court of Appeals ruled. The court’s ruling is important for preserving government transparency, particularly in an era when governments are privatizing many public services, Dolph Barnhouse, a lawyer for the New Mexico Foundation for Open Government said Monday. At issue in the case was the reach of one of New Mexico’s main governmental sunshine laws, the Inspection of Public Records Act. “It basically says that cities can’t avoid IPRA by

just contracting out everything they do as a city government,” Barnhouse said of the ruling. The court issued the decision last week in a case involving the city of Truth or Consequences and a nonprofit corporation that operated a public access cable channel. Video recordings of city commission meetings, which were made by the contractor, are subject to disclosure under state law, the court said in reversing a district judge in Sierra County who had decided the recordings were not public records. The court said the cable system contractor was the “functional equivalent of a public agency in this case.” The court outlined stan-

Saturday after noon, Roswell Police arrested Roy Mahoney, 83, near the intersection of Lincoln Avenue and Bland Street. Mahoney was charged as a public nuisance. He told of ficials at the time he was “trying to pick up a woman.” According to the RPD, Mahoney has a history of attempting to solicit sex from the women staying at The Rivers of Life homeless shelter, 400 E. Bland St., as well as approaching mentally handicapped individuals throughout Roswell for the same reason. Mahoney was arrested in March for a battery incident that happened in February. The incident report states that he

picked up a 26-year -old female and was driving her to the store. The victim, who went voluntarily with Mahoney, stated he grabbed her and she asked him to stop, but he continued. Mahoney has been advised to stay away from Rivers of Life on more than one occasion. He was taken to the Chaves County Detention Center and has a $300 surety bond. Police urge citizens to be aware of Mahoney and ask the public to contact the RPD at 624-6770 if he makes advances. Mahoney is described as being 5-feet, 8-inches tall, weighing 175 lbs., has brown eyes, gray/blonde hair, and glasses.

dards for judges to follow in determining whether documents and other materials in the control of a government contractor are public records subject to disclosure under state law. The Inspection of Public Records Act broadly defines public records and includes materials relating to public business that are held “on behalf of any public body.” However, no appellate court in New Mexico previously had provided guidance on handling records held by governmental contractors. The city and the New Mexico Municipal League, which filed written arguments with the court, contended that the public records law shouldn’t apply when government contracts out services and there’s no

provision in their operating agreement to require the contractor to keep records on behalf of the government. The court rejected that approach. “Today, traditional public functions such as fire protection, transportation, jails, after-school programs, and health care are routinely delegated to private entities — or privatized — for a variety of reasons. To allow such entities to circumvent a citizen’s right of access to records by contracting as the city and NMML suggest would thwart the very purpose of IPRA and mark a significant departure from New Mexico’s presumption of openness at the heart of our access law,” the court said in an opinion written by Judge Linda Vanzi.

Remodeling your current home may seem like a good idea...adding an extra bath or bedroom or modernizing the kitchen. But how can you tell if it’s better to move than remodel? One rule of thumb is that if your home is already at the high end of the price range for the neighborhood, moving makes more sense.

Estimate the cost of planned improvements. Add fifty percent of that cost to the appraised value of your home. If the new value will put the price over the top ten percent for your neighborhood, think twice before remodeling. It is unlikely that you will recoup your investment when you sell.© Give Me a Call Today!

Store owner takes stand in NM gun raid trial Roswell Daily Record

LAS CRUCES (AP) — A New Mexico gun store owner accused of selling weapons to Mexican drug cartels testified Monday that he never took seriously comments from a customer -turned-informant who talked about taking guns and ammunition south of the border. Rick Reese, owner of New Deal Shooting Sports in Deming, says the man was boisterous and bragging all the time, so he didn’t believe anything he said. Reese, his wife, Terri, and their sons, R yin and Remington, are on trial on charges that they sold assault rifles and ammunition to the informant and undercover federal agents. Closing arguments in the case could come Tuesday afternoon. The infor mant, Jose Roman, testified against the Reeses last week. Roman implicated the family after he was arrested in January 2011 on marijuana distribution charges.

Reese first took the stand Friday, saying he would have thrown Roman out of the store if he had thought Roman was serious when he talked about the arms going to Mexico to battle La Sinaloa drug cartel. Under cross-examination, Reese admitted saying, “Even if I took a (military truck) full of ammo to Mexico, it wouldn’t help you guys.” Reese said he was talking hypothetically, saying no amount of ammunition would improve the situation in Mexico. Reese also said he made a comment about hoping the guns go to Mexico and are used “to shoot federales.” He explained that a son’s friend had been killed in the Mexican border town of Palomas, and he “was hoping that the people victimized were able to defend themselves.” Terri Reese testified later Monday that it wasn’t uncommon for Roman to bring customers into the store and give advice on

SANTA FE (AP) — The New Mexico Legislature’s research ar m is helping voters get an early start on learning about proposed constitutional amendments to be decided in the November general election.

Three of the measures will revamp the Public Regulation Commission, including allowing the Legislature to establish minimum qualifications for elected commissioners and creating an independent insurance regulatory office.

what guns to buy. Her husband also had testified last week that it was not unusual for experienced buyers to help others negotiate transactions.

But prosecutors played some undercover videos aimed at showing that Terri Reeves knew that the guns Roman bought were for him and not the people he brought in.

Prosecutors claim the defendants sold 34 firearms and thousands of rounds of ammunition to the undercover agents and Roman, who acted as the negotiator for the agents.

Defense lawyers maintain the Reeses followed all legal procedures during the undercover sales and kept detailed records. Defense attorneys also noted that Terri Reese contacted law enforcement after a suspicious transaction in 2010.

agency, created under the 2010 overhaul of financial regulations. Warren’s convention address will precede Clinton’s. Several prominent Democrats began pushing earlier this year for support of same-sex marriage to be included in the convention platform, which lists principles the party supports. The effort got a boost in May when Obama voiced his personal support for same-sex unions. The Democratic official would not comment on the exact language of the pro-gay marriage plank approved by the drafting committee. It was unclear if the party would call for any national action to legalize gay marriage. The official spoke on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publically about the platform committee’s decision. Obama has said he considers gay mar-

cials, consultants and various stakeholders. There they discussed the current condition of the runway, proposed improvements, and the costs of those improvements. While the FAA has tossed around several proposals, those that initially garnered the most concern were the grooving and shortening of the runway. These modifications would put a stop to the testing performed by RIAC’s test facility companies like Cessna, Boeing and Gulfstream, and the FAA has at this time agreed to drop those two requests. In March, the city submitted three new modification proposals to the FAA: to keep the runway’s width as is, at 200 feet; to leave light structures at their current location; and to not groove the runway. A width of 150 feet is standard at all FAAapproved airports; the FAA encourages a uniform look at its airports to deter pilots from becoming confused. However, Griego said runway 2103’s 200-foot width provides a greater safety barrier to the companies that use it. Mayor Del Jurney noted that the city has a second runway, runway 1735, which is not as long, is grooved and can be utilized by commercial aircrafts. The FAA is primarily concer ned with regional jets and incoming commercial traffic, he said. The city reviewed the proposed modifications with the FAA last week when officials came to examine the runway. Jurney said the city hoped the visit would encourage the FAA to consider, “the facility as a whole

riage to be a state issue, not a federal matter.

Gay rights advocates hailed the decision as a significant step forward.

“I believe that one day very soon the platforms of both major parties will include similar language,” said Chad Griffin, president of the Human Rights Campaign. “There is no more American value than honoring and protecting one’s family.”

The National Organization for Marriage, which opposes same-sex unions, said the decision sets up marriage as a defining issue in the presidential election.

“We will rally supporters of traditional marriage to make sure they realize that the outcome of the presidential election may determine the future of marriage in our country,” said Brian Brown, the organization’s president. The Democratic platform committee’s move was first reported by The Washington Blade.

and the potential future use of the facility. When you start talking about reducing the size, the length of our runway, when you look at reducing the width capabilities of our runway then you start to narrow the parameters a little bit. Our contention was it’s here, it’s that way, it’s one of a kind, let’s not necessarily jump to conclusions that it’s better to be narrower or it’s better to be shorter or it’s better to be grooved.”

The FAA makes modification recommendations on rare occasions, which results in considerable costs. “Each factor influences what the cost is going to be because you’re talking about a $20 or $30 million project, depending upon the width, so it’s not insignificant,” Fry said. As of now, the city and the FAA have not set a deadline for the final recommendations and assessed costs. In the meantime, the FAA recommended the city go to the users to see about sharing the costs of future changes.

“The FAA has a pot of money ... to do modifications and work at all their airports and so if we can go to the users and get buy-in and partnership from them as well … to some extent some of those users, if they can’t do it here, then they have to go overseas to do it,” Jurney said. Last week, a plane originating from Russia, which weighed around 983,000 lbs., landed at the RIAC. “There’s not many places that, that plane can land,” Jurney said. According to its website, the RIAC is an FAA approved 139-certificated airport.

which he suggested that their culture was part of what has allowed them to be more economically successful than the Palestinians. Kind words for Israel are standard for many American politicians, but Palestinian leaders suggested his specific comments were racist and out of touch with the realities of the Middle East. “Because it’s billed as a layup — it’s billed as something that should be simple — perhaps he let his guard down,” said Hogan Gidley, a senior aide under former Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum. “You say, ‘Gosh, this guy is so scripted, the campaign is so disciplined, so smart, how could this happen?”’ Still, he doubted that Romney would suf fer any long-ter m ef fects among voters who are still undecided three months before the election. Predictably, Obama’s campaign was more critical, with senior strategist David Axelrod saying on Twitter: “Is there anything about Romney’s Rolling Ruckus that would inspire confidence in his ability to lead US foreign policy?” It’s unclear whether voters in the U.S. are paying attention to Romney’s stumbles, especially as concerns about the nation’s economy dominate most Americans’ concerns. “I’d say it has the same impact as a stubbed toe,” said Iowa Republican John Stineman, a marketing consultant in Des Moines. “People are still focused on the economy.” And Debra Hayes, a Republican-leaning independent from Denver, said Romney’s overseas comments have no impact on how she’ll vote. “I’m interested only in the economy jobs, and the prices of things,” said Hayes, who is undecided. “We need to stand with Israel. And our president needs to show leadership overseas. But things are going downhill at home, and that’s what matters.” And Romney drew his share of favorable media coverage back home. A speech on Israel policy, delivered at dusk against the scenic backdrop of Jerusalem’s Old City, drew praise for its setting and delivery. He and his wife, Ann, appeared relaxed and engaged in an interview on CNN, where Ann Romney described her husband as loving and emotionally engaged. Still, missteps in the past week have fueled opponents’ contentions that the former businessman and Massachusetts governor is out of touch with the nation and the world he hopes to lead. As the trip got under way, Romney caused a stir in Britain by questioning whether officials there were fully prepared to host the Olympic Games. The dispute overshadowed his efforts to highlight his personal experience leading the Salt Lake City Games a decade ago. Instead, Romney was widely assailed by the London media and criticized by British leaders. Then on his first day in Israel, Romney distanced himself from an adviser’s suggestion that he would “respect” a decision by Israel to launch military action to prevent Iran from achieving

nuclear weapons capability. On Monday at a fundraiser, opened to the media after the campaign first said it would be closed, Romney shared a sentiment he sometimes talks about on the campaign trail in the United States and repeats in his book, “No Apology.” But his decision to highlight cultural differences in a region where such differences have helped fuel violence for generations prompted new questions about his diplomatic skills — and enraged Palestinian leaders. Comparing economic output per capita in Israel and “just across the areas managed by the Palestinian Authority,” he declared that “you notice such a dramatically stark difference in economic vitality.” He was speaking to about 40 wealthy donors at the King David Hotel, which is within sight of the Palestinian territory on the West Bank. He said some economic histories have theorized that “culture makes all the difference.” “And as I come here and I look out over this city and consider the accomplishments of the people of this nation, I recognize the power of at least culture and a few other things,” Romney said, citing an innovative business climate, the Jewish history of thriving in difficult circumstances and the “hand of providence.” He said similar disparity exists between other neighboring countries, including Mexico and the United States. Palestinian leaders quickly objected. “It seems to me this man lacks information, knowledge, vision and understanding of this region and its people,” said Saeb Erekat, a senior aide to Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas. “It is a racist statement, and this man doesn’t realize that the Palestinian economy cannot reach its potential because there is an Israeli occupation.” “This will cause a lot of damage to American interests,” he said. Romney campaign spokeswoman Andrea Saul said the comments “were grossly mischaracterized.” The campaign added that Romney’s comparison of countries that are close to each other and have wide income disparities — the U.S. and Mexico, Chile and Ecuador — shows his comments were broader than just the comparison between Israel and the Palestinians. At the White House, spokesman Josh Earnest said, “One of the challenges of being an actor on the international stage, particularly when you’re traveling to such a sensitive part of the world, is that your comments are very closely scrutinized for meaning, for nuance, for motivation.” Romney flew on to Poland for two days of visits with leaders. He met with the Cold War-era Solidarity leader Lech Walesa in Gdansk, earning his endorsement: “I wish you to be successful because the success is needed to the United States, of course, but to Europe as well and to the rest of the world, too. So, Governor Romney, get your success, be successful,” Walesa said through a translator. Walesa suggested Romney’s leadership was needed to restore America’s position in the world.


Cleaning up Dodge — again and again A4 Tuesday, July 31, 2012

OPINION

State Investment Officer Steve Moise spoke last week about turning around his blighted agency. Moise, you may recall, is the Dudley Do-right chosen to clean up the State Investment Office, which manages the state’s permanent funds. I’ve heard Moise a couple of times now, along with Doug Brown, Moise’s counterpart at the State T reasurer’s Office a few years earlier. So I couldn’t help but wonder who we’ll be listening to a year from now describing the house cleaning at the New Mexico Finance Authority. And what new scandal will have erupted by then. NMFA’s fake audit, which raised eyebrows on Wall Street, somehow slipped past a lot of people who should have been minding the state’s business. And now we’re seeing the first fallout in capital projects stalled around the state. Poor McKinley County can’t catch a break, it seems. First it

lost 71 percent of its projects to the governor’s line-item vetoes, and now Gallup is watching two projects falter in the NMFA debacle. Moise talks a lot about lessons learned, which have broad applications for organizations, including the bumbling NMFA. “Franklin Jones always said you need to build systems,” Jones told a business group. “You need institutional continuity and institutional integrity, so the systems will continue to perform even if you’re not there. You need new policies, new processes, and the

right people. How can you ensure ethical behavior? It all depends on the people in place.” There you have ethical reform in a nutshell. The late Franklin Jones, once the state’s tax czar, was a wise man. His point about processes and systems is well taken, but it still comes down to people, and there are two aspects of that. First, you want those solid, dependable people you would trust with your kids, your bank account, your life-and-death decisions. Second is competence, which sometimes takes a back seat. Competence is key. One of Moise’s first moves was to have the State Personnel Office conduct an organizational analysis to make sure people were qualified for the jobs they held, and the result was a lot of staf f changes. When the shooting is over, we’ll

probably see that Moise’s predecessor, Gary Bland, wasn’t necessarily corrupt, but he was under-qualified. People who are in over their heads are more vulnerable to manipulation. Moise and the 11-member State Investment Council went to great pains in hiring a new chief financial officer. In a national search, Vince Smith was plucked from 130 applicants and is now spearheading what may be the largest portfolio restructuring going on in the country today to steer the funds away from the risk and volatility of the stock market and toward what Moise calls “a true institutional fund.” Management 101: Hire good people and pay them what they’re worth. How does this work when we’re in budget-cutting mode? Ethics 101: Choose good people and back them up. Scrimp on salaries, weasel on support and we pay anyway for

accountants and lawyers. Systems are another form of support. Moise and the council have “new layers of checks and balances,” he said. That includes council committees, a staff code of ethics and code of conduct. Here’s a piece Moise didn’t mention — the top dog and his or her approachability. Moise was chosen because he didn’t have a fly on him, and I’ve known him long enough to say he’s very approachable. That means an employee can walk into his office and say, there’s something I’m not comfortable with. The NMFA stories revolve around the former controller, but are we supposed to believe nobody else knew anything? Nobody spoke up? Why? We need more than official indignation. We need a model of good government, ethical behavior, checks and balances replicated across agencies. © New Mexico News Services 2012

Sally Ride

NASA officials always were very careful about which astronauts they chose for specific missions, particularly the “historic first” missions. All else being equal, they wanted to avoid people who enjoyed celebrity too much. So, in 1961, the first American in space was the laconic Alan Shepard, not the gregarious John Glenn. Eight years later, the first man to step on the moon was the phlegmatic Neil Armstrong, not his overtly ambitious crewmate, Buzz Aldrin. And, in 1983, the first American woman in space was Sally Kristen Ride, at 32 the youngest of the six women in the first astronaut class that included women. For American popular culture, Sally Ride, who was 61 when she died last week of pancreatic cancer at her home near San Diego, was a terrible choice. She had that really cool “Mustang Sally” name, but she wouldn’t play along with stupid questions. She spoke like someone with a Ph.D. in physics, which she was, giving flat, technical and precise explanations of her job. She was polite, distant and reserved. She would say later that she didn’t realize how special her flight was to American women and girls until STS-7 landed in June 1983. She told an interviewer in 2004 that NASA had kept her insulated from the public during training, “but I wasn’t face to face with women until I came back from my flight, and then it hit home pretty hard how important it was to an awful lot of women in the country.” She would fly on the shuttle Challenger again in 1984 and was scheduled for a third flight when the Challenger blew up at launch in 1986, killing seven crew members, two of whom were women. Ride took part in the exhaustive forensic investigation into the Challenger disaster. With the shuttle program suspended, she left NASA. Like Neil Armstrong before her, she disappeared into academic and private life, focusing on the mystery of why so many girls lose interest in science and math before they graduate from high school. She wrote books, but they were science books for kids, not memoirs. She would spurn endorsement deals but used her name to boost a company that operates science academies and camps. She told The Smithsonian that using her fame “has a different feel to it when it has a purpose beyond making yourself famous.” That perfectly reasonable attitude seems odd in today’s culture, where men and women with a fraction of Sally Ride’s credentials celebrate themselves relentlessly. She could have made millions, but she preferred privacy and dignity, even to the last months of her life. She had kept her illness secret, and only in her obituary was it disclosed that Tam O’Shaughnessy, her longtime friend and business partner, also had been her life partner for 27 years. The sleazoid media went nuts. At last Sally Ride had given them something they could understand. Guest Editorial The St. Louis Post-Dispatch

DEAR DOCTOR K: I’m scheduled to have hip replacement surgery. What complications can occur with a replacement joint? DEAR READER: I’m answering your question as both a doctor and a patient, since I had a hip replacement about a decade ago. First, the basics. Your hip is a ball in a socket joint: The big bone in the top part of your leg has a top that’s shaped like a ball, and your pelvic bone has a cup into which the ball fits. Hip replacement surgery involves replacing the bony ball and socket with an artificial device made of metal or ceramic. Before I talk about what can go wrong with hip replace-

In “Watershed,” his brilliant book on the 1980 campaign for the presidency won by Ronald Reagan, author John Stacks reported on interviews lasting six hours of 250 individuals, probing the respondents’ “personal and political values,” conducted by the late Dr. Richard Wirthlin, who from 1968 forward was Reagan’s trusted pollster, trusted adviser and personal admirer. In those exhaustive sessions with the 250, Wirthlin encountered the pes-

My only regret, as is true with most of my patients who undergo hip replacement surgery, is that I waited too long to have it done. So what can go wrong?

If you feel new pain in the implanted hip, particularly if you also feel sick and have a fever, seek immediate treatment. — Leg-length discrepancy. After surgery, muscle weakness or spasm and swelling around the hip may temporarily cause an abnormal tilt to your pelvis. This may make you feel as though your legs are unequal in length. It may be several months before you can tell if the discrepancy is temporary or real. If it’s real, it can be addressed with a lift

In the weeks after your hip replacement, take great care to keep from dislocating your implant before the surrounding tissues have healed enough to hold it in place. To reduce dislocation risk, do not bend over farther than your waist for about six weeks after your surgery. Also avoid turning your operated leg in or out. Even afterward, there is a chance of a painful dislocation. Loosening. A replacement joint can loosen because the cement never secured it properly or eventually wore out. See DR. K, Page A5

As an example, he revealed to me that, during the 1984 re-election campaign, when Reagan carried 49 of the 50 states against Democrat Walter Mondale, the Reagan campaign had polled every night, and Mondale had led Reagan on just two nights all year: the night of the day on which Mondale named Geraldine Ferraro as his running mate and the following night.

August begins with National Simplify Your Life Week and National Clown Week, while Sunday is Friendship Day. So, prioritize what is most important in your life; what you love doing and what brings you joy. Remember to laugh, to relax and to celebrate life. Take time to enjoy things, like a walk in the park with family and friends, or to visit the library to discover new titles or to reread your favorite books. The Roswell Public Library’s Summer Reading Adventure season ends today and prizes may be selected until 8:45 p.m. tonight. The good news is all seasons are reasons to read for relaxation and knowledge, so spring into the joys of reading, fall into a harvest of titles, or winterize through the wonder of books. All ages are invited to check out the books and other materials available at the library, 301 N. Pennsylvania Ave. The library is open from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday and Tuesday, from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday and from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Sunday.

Book Talk

Robert Briggs, circulation supervisor, appreciates short stories. Although they are often defined as fiction that is too short to be called novels, a good short story is able to have the same impact as a full-length book. Short stories tend to be focused on fewer characters and may be better at explaining how a seemingly trivial event can change the

EDITOR’S NOTE

way a character views the world. They are very different than a condensed novel. Robert has selected the following anthologies which exhibit qualities that make a short story more than just a small book. During World War II, the beginning of the Warsaw Uprising against Nazi oppression and the last entry in the diary of Anne Frank happened on Aug. 1, 1944. Nathan Englander’s collection of eight stories examines the diverse experiences of the Jewish people from dif ferent eras and from around the world. “What We Talk About When We Talk About Anne Frank” is the title of the book as well as the title of the first story. Englander explores the uncomfortable truths that occur when people are forced to contemplate whether or not they could do the right thing, even if the right thing meant putting themselves in harm’s way. The story is thought provoking, providing insight into the thought process of people who are frightened that past atrocities will reoccur. “Sister Hills” is almost like a retelling of “The Book of Job,” chronicling the life of a woman who experiences extreme heart break from the time she settles in Samaria during the Yom Kippur War to present day. Other stories examine the clash between Jewish faith and secular desires. This collection won the Frank O’Connor International Short Story Award.

Annie Proulx’s “Close Range: Wyoming Stories” presents mid1900’s Wyoming as a difficult place to live. People living on farms and ranches eke out a living while experiencing harsh lives and heartache. The writing style fits the settings of Wyoming, with the sparseness of the writing equaling the sparseness of the landscapes. The last story in this book, “Brokeback Mountain,” is probably the most well known, but those who read from beginning to end will find that the other stories are just as heart wrenching. The stories are written almost as if from the viewpoint of the setting, and the setting views tragedy almost nonchalantly. Young people will enjoy the following collections of short stories. Muggles grow up with Grimm’s fairy tales while wizarding children grow up with “Tales of Beedle the Bard,” a collection bequeathed to Hermione by Professor Dumbledore to provide clues essential to helping Harry. “Tales of Beedle the Bard” is available to be checked out of the library by both muggles and wizards. Hermione’s new translation from the ancient runes includes an introduction, notes and illustrations by J. K. Rowling, along with extensive commentary by Albus Dumbledore. “Guys Write for Guys Read” is a diverse and fast-paced anthology of stories that features brief contributions from scores of authors

By the third night, you may recall, following unanswered questions about her husband’s tax returns, she had become “ Mrs. John Zaccaro,” and the race returned to form. “If you are going to run for national of fice, you’d better understand that optimism is something that Americans expect,” concluded Democrat Tom Kiley, who served as media adviser to Democratic presidential nominee Michael Dukakis. The current 2012 campaign suffers from an acute shortage of optimism. Neither Barack Obama nor Mitt Romney could be mistaken for either of those carriers of contagious sunniness, Bill Clinton or Ronald Reagan. The country now has the feel of that subway car which has come to a jolting, unscheduled stop somewhere in the dark tunnel between stations. The lights are out. The air is close. There is a palpable nervousness among the passengers. That stalled subway car and the nation today both desperately need that strong, confident voice that can convincingly explain what went wrong, what is now being done to repair the damage, what the passengers and the people can do to help that process and when we can expect

As a joint implant suffers wear and tear, loose particles can be released into the joint. As your immune system attacks these particles, it can also attack surrounding bone and weaken it.

to get back on track. The key question to keep your eye on for the next three months (which some of Wirthlin’s proteges credit him for developing) is: “Do you think things are generally headed in the right direction, or do you feel that things are off on the wrong track?” Just before the Democrats recaptured the House in 2006, just 26 percent of voters judged the U.S. to be headed “in the right direction,” while 61 percent answered “on the wrong track.” Just before the GOP lost the White House in 2008, the right track number was down to 11 percent and the wrong track figure was up to 78 percent. In 2010, when voters took away Democratic control of the House, the right direction was 31 percent, and the wrong track was 61 percent. In the most recent Wall Street Journal-NBC News July poll, by an almost 2-to-1 margin — 32 percent right direction/60 percent wrong track — voters still see their country mired in trouble and error.

Dear Editor: This letter is in response to “Hard times,” authored by Eloy Ortega Jr. that was in the July 29, 2012, edition. Mr. Ortega talks about the hardships that befall those who go to court in and around Chaves County. I, for one, would not want to broadcast that I have family members who frequent the judicial halls. First off, if the offender would learn from past experience, they would stay out of trouble. Most of them choose not to learn. They create a revolving door, in and out of county and state facilities. They do not care what happens to their family, be it wife and kids or parents. They only think of themselves. The shackles are a precautionary measure that protects both prisoner and court personnel. If the offender is a repeat, it is nothing new to him or her. That is how they arrived at the jail or police station. Most of them get used to it, or they would not keep finding the opportunity to wear them. Let them learn something from it. They know the consequences of breaking the rules. Wear the ankle bracelet and pay the upkeep or stay locked up. Simple process. As far as the DUI statement that the rules are too harsh: Explain that to a family that has just lost a family member.

care that the alcoholic has a problem, they want justice. I, myself have been hurt and have had members of my family hurt by a drunk driver. How do you explain to a small child that he cannot hug daddy because somebody sent him to heaven? You cannot get a child to understand why that happens. If the offender is an alcoholic, he needs to ask for help. If they are incarcerated they have a better chance of getting the help that they need. But first they have to want the help to quit! Most do not want to quit. This is an epidemic in our state. The punishment, in our state, is a joke. You get more prison time for robbing a convenience store than you do for killing people while you are driving drunk. A sad commentary for our state.

Ryniec on Sept. 23, 1933, who preceded her in death. They had three children together, Beryl (spouse Leroy Daliege), Martin David, and Keith Steven (Kathy); all three children have preceded her in death. She was one of four children, brother Lawrence Stocking, sister Viola (Forrest) Dozier, who have also preceded her in death. She is survived by one brother Robert (Dianne) Stocking who lives in Indiana. Grandma Bea as she was known to everyone was responsible for a pilot program in Illinois. She was a director of a work experience program for former mental patients which she

took pride in before she retired and moved to Roswell in 1971. Over the years she kept herself busy with numerous activities which included, Red Hat Club, Four I Club and her luncheons at Peppers with her dear friends from Sunrise Estates, the mobile home park where she lived many years. Grandma Bea loved to wear her jewelry and occupied her Thursday afternoons with her weekly visits to Best Beauty shop for more than 30 years. Among many of Grandma Bea’s hobbies she loved to travel and had the privilege of seeing the beauty of all but three of the 50 states, but the most enjoyable hobby she had was reading, she loved to relax in her recliner and read every day.

NASA to athletic Mars rover: ‘Stick the landing’

to slow it down until it hovers. Cables will unspool from the backpack and slowly lower the rover — at less than 2 mph. The cables keep the rocket engines from getting too close and kicking up dust. Once the rover senses touchdown, the cords will be cut.

“The degree of difficulty is above a 10,” said Adam Steltzner, an engineer at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, which manages the mission.

In this 2011 artist's rendering provided by NASA/JPL-Caltech, the Mars Science Laboratory Curiosity rover examines a rock on Mars.

PASADENA, Calif. (AP) — It’s NASA’s most ambitious and expensive Mars mission yet—and it begins with the red planet arrival late Sunday of the smartest interplanetary rover ever built. Also the most athletic. Like an Olympic gymnast, it needs to “stick the landing.” It won’t be easy. The complicated touchdown NASA designed for the Curiosity rover is so risky it’s been described as “seven minutes of terror” — the time it takes to go from 13,000 mph to a complete stop. Scientists and engineers will be waiting anxiously 154 million miles away as the spacecraft plunges through Mars’ thin atmosphere, and in a new twist, attempts to slowly lower the rover to the bottom of a crater with cables. If it succeeds, a video camera aboard the rover will have captured the most dramatic minutes for the first filming of a landing on another planet. “It would be a major technological step forward if it works. It’s a big gamble,” said American Uni-

versity space policy analyst Howard McCurdy. The future direction of Mars exploration is hanging on the outcome of this $2.5 billion science project to determine whether the environment was once suitable for microbes to live. Previous missions have found ice and signs that water once flowed. Curiosity will drill into rocks and soil in search of carbon and other elements. Named for the Roman god of war, Mars is unforgiving with a hostile history of swallowing manmade spacecraft. It’s tough to fly there and even tougher to touch down. More than half of humanity’s attempts to land on Mars have ended in disaster. “You’ve done everything that you can think of to ensure mission success, but Mars can still throw you a curve,” said former NASA Mars czar Scott Hubbard who now teaches at Stanford University. The Mini Cooper-sized spacecraft traveled 8 1⁄2 months to reach Mars. In a sort of celestial acrobatics, Curiosity will twist,

turn and perform other maneuvers throughout the seven-minute thrill ride to the surface. Why is NASA attempting such a daredevil move? It had little choice. Earlier spacecraft dropped to the Martian surface like a rock, swaddled in airbags, and bounced to a stop. Such was the case with the much smaller and lighter rovers Spirit and Opportunity in 2004. At nearly 2,000 pounds, Curiosity is too heavy, so engineers had to come up with a new way to land. Friction from the thin atmosphere isn’t enough to slow down the spacecraft without some help. During its fiery plunge, Curiosity will brake by executing a series of Scurves — similar to how the space shuttle reentered Earth’s atmosphere. At 900 mph, it will unfurl its huge parachute. It then will shed the heat shield that took the brunt of the atmospheric friction and switch on its groundsensing radar. A mile from the surface, Curiosity will jettison the parachute and fire up its rocket-powered backpack

It takes 14 minutes for radio signals on Mars to travel to Earth. The lag means Curiosity will already be alive or dead by the time mission control finds out.

The rover’s landing target is Gale Crater near the Martian equator. It’s an ancient depression about the size of Connecticut and Rhode Island combined with a 3-mile-high mountain rising from the center of the crater floor. Scientists know Gale was once waterlogged. Images from space reveal mineral signatures of clays and sulfate salts, which form in the presence of water, in older layers near the bottom of the mountain.

Humans have been mesmerized by the fourth rock from the sun since the 19th century when American astronomer Percival Lowell, peering through a telescope, theorized that intelligent beings carved what looked like irrigation canals. Scientists now think that if life existed on Mars — a big if — it would be in the form of microbes.

Curiosity will explore whether the crater ever had the right environment for microorganisms to take hold.

DALLAS (AP) — Suzy Gershman, whose “Born to Shop” travel guides have helped readers find where to browse and buy from Paris to Hong Kong, has died. She was 64. Gershman died July 25 in San Antonio after being diagnosed about a year ago with brain cancer, said her son, Aaron Gershman, and her co-author, Sarah Lahey. Since its launch in the mid-1980s, “Born to Shop” series has been translated into a half-dozen languages and sold more than 4 million copies worldwide, Lahey said. Sixteen of the books have been published, and some were revised every other year. Frommer’s acquired the rights for the books in 1995. “They were for people who were as passionate about shopping as Suzy,” said Kelly Regan, editorial director for Frommer’s Travel Guides. With a focus on good value and high quality, Gershman was just as comfortable looking for bargains at flea markets as she was at high-end stores like Hermes, said Regan. She said Gershman was also “particularly incisive” on what outlet centers were worth the trip, and could cover all areas of shopping, from clothing to home goods to pet gear. Her son, 32-year -old

Aaron Gershman of Los Angeles, who can remember traveling “everywhere” with his globe-trotting mother, said he always admired that she turned a love of shopping and travel into a career. “From before I could walk, I remember being in a stroller on the big shopping streets of Paris,” he said. Gershman was born on April 13, 1948, in Syracuse, N.Y. While attending the University of Texas at Austin, Gershman worked for the San Antonio Express-News. After graduating from UT in 1969, Gershman moved to New York, working in advertising and public relations before beginning a career in magazines as a freelance journalist. Gershman and her husband then moved to Los Angeles, where she became the West Coast style editor in People magazine’s Beverly Hills offices. Her first television job was a stint on the style show “PM Magazine.” She later would frequently appear on television programs talking about her shopping expertise and contributed to various magazines. Services were held Friday in San Antonio for Gershman, who is survived by her son, his wife and a granddaughter.

Jacob, Ethan and Alexander. Five great-great-great grandchildren, Kaden, R yleigh, Rorik, Odin and Liam. Two nephews, Forest (Martha) and David (Debbie). The family would like to thank a very special friend whom Grandma Bea depended on for 20 years, Tina Lambing. Memorial services will be held Friday, Aug. 3, 2012, at Grace Community Church at 9 a.m. with Pastor John Drusedum officiating.

Harold “Hugo” Killgo installs new disk brake pads on a vehicle. He can also turn brake drums. Harold "Hugo" Killgo has specialized in brake and frontend work for fifty-two years. Killgo’s Brake and Alinement, 1508 West Second St., is the place to go for brake and front-end work. Phone 623-7009 for expert service.

Harold “Hugo” Killgo turns a brake drum on his Performance™ brake lathe. If it has anything to do with brakes or front-end work (shocks, struts, ball joints or wheel bearings), Hugo is THE ONE to call. Hugo does expert work at competitive prices, using only the best quality parts.

See Killgo’s for expert brake work, ‘alinements’ and parts

Did you ever hear of a “one-man band?” Well, Harold “Hugo” Killgo, owner of Killgo’s Brake and Alinement, 1508 West Second Street, is a oneman front-end and brake specialist. Harold has been handling brake and frontend work for fifty-two years, since 1960, and can fix any domestic or imported car or truck, including 4-wheel drive vehicles. "Alinement” You may have noticed that Harold spells “alinement” without the “g”. (Both spellings are correct, according to Webster’s New Twentieth Century Dictionary, Unabridged.) Harold says, “You can get an alinement with a ’g’ anywhere, but you have to come here to get it done right!” Harold’s dad, D.P. spelled it without the “g” also. D.P. Killgo, who passed away a few years ago in Texas, ran Roswell Brake and Alinement for years, and is perhaps best remembered for the big fake bear in the back of his El Camino pickup during that

time. (The bear now resides atop a building on North Main Street.) Harold handles all types of front-end work, including shocks, struts, tie-rods, ball joints, upper and lower control arm bushings, packing wheel bearings and alinement (or alignment, if you prefer.) If you’ve ever run into or over a curb, you have probably knocked your front-end out of alinement. You will know it when you take your hands off the steering wheel and the vehicle goes to one side or the other on a flat road; the vehicle pulls to one side when you apply the brakes; or if your tires squeal, even in easy turns. Any of these three conditions indicate you may need an alinement. “A car is designed to go straight. When it’s out of alinement, it is pulling an unnatural against weight, so there is more wear on the tires, and you will end up needing frontend parts sooner than normal,” Harold says. Checking and keeping your

vehicle in alinement will save you money and lower the possibility of having problems while you are out on the road. Everyone drives differently, so there is no set schedule for having a vehicle realined, like there is for having the oil changed. “Some drivers will knock a car out of alinement ten minutes after they buy it, while others can go for years without any trouble,” Harold jokes. So, when you are driving and you hit a slick spot and bounce off the curb, your alinement may be knocked out of adjustment. It is a good idea to have it checked after a mishap, before you ruin a set of tires or wear out your front-end. If you hit a pot hole, you should go in and have Hugo 'aline' it for you. If your vehicle vibrates at high speed the tires may need to be balanced. Harold can handle that, too. Brake work Harold can fix any brake problem you might encounter. Whether you

only require brake shoes or pads, or need the rotors or drums turned, Harold Killgo is the man to see. If your brakes squeak or make grinding noises when you step on the pedal, that is usually a good indication that you are experiencing brake problems. But, at times, a noise in the front-end may not be the brakes, but may indicate that Harold needs to pack your wheel bearings. Either way, Harold can, and will, figure out what the problem is - and he will fix it. Harold recently bought some old equipment, and now can reline oddball brake shoes. So, if you have an old vehicle, and have had trouble finding linings for it, he might be able to fix you up. Expert service Harold knows his business, and he “won’t fix what ain’t broke”. It’s hard to find a mechanic you can trust these days, but Harold depends mainly on repeat business, customer loyalty and word-of-mouth recom-

mendations, so he emphasizes quality and satisfaction. Harold Killgo specializes in what he does: brakes and front-end work, he doesn’t do oil changes, tune-ups or mufflers. When you have your car or truck serviced at Killgo’s Brake and Alinement, you can rest assured that the boss is doing the work personally. That’s because Harold works alone in his big metal garage. “At least I don’t have to worry about the help showing up,” he laughs. Harold insists on using only the best parts, getting them locally for faster service. That, and his experience, assures you of the finest quality work on your vehicle. Harold will tell you in advance how much your repair will cost. “I’m like everybody else; I don’t like surprises,” he says. Killgo’s prices are competitive, especially for brake jobs. “People call around, then

they come here,” he said. Harold realizes you depend on your vehicle and he will do whatever is required to ‘get you back on the road.’ No matter how busy he is, he will try to fit you in. If you are looking for a mechanic who knows what he is doing when it comes to brake or front-end repairs, call 623-7009, or stop by Killgo’s Brake and Alinement at 1508 West Second Street. Harold is open from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. “You’ll feel the difference when you drive.” Alignment Supply Harold has recently started carrying "Everything for the wheel alignment shop." Killgo's carries both Performance Ingalls Suspension Components and Specialty Products Company suspension components. Call 623-4119 for suspension components and wheel weights.

The Stars Show the Kind of Day You’ll Have: 5-Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3-Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult

ARIES (March 21-April 19)  You continue with the best of intentions. For the most part, others receive your messages loud and clear. Your softer side emerges when you see how distraught someone is. You, too, could lose your temper. Tonight: To the wee hours. TAURUS (April 20-May 20)  Push to get past an argument, and understand where someone else is coming from. You often are very serious. Perhaps in that mood you close down a lot. Tap into your strong energy, and you’ll find the drive to make it through this tough spot. Tonight: Find someone to brainstorm with you. GEMINI (May 21-June 20)  Success comes through dealing with others on a one-on-one level. You can turn a problem around if you stay open. You have a great deal of passion about a creative endeavor, yet you hesitate to take a risk. Tonight: Go off and do something you love. CANCER (June 21-July 22)     Defer to others, yet be responsive to a superior who seems to have a very different but positive way of handling important matters. Family and your personal life are always high priorities, but today they are even more so. Tonight: Close to home. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)  Push yourself, and focus on what must be done.

You also could feel pressured, but count on your creativity to find solutions. Tonight: Lighten up the mood. Join friends. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)  You might want to stop and think about what is going on. Your home life takes priority at the moment, which makes it difficult to focus on anything else. Deal with the situation before it deals with you. Tonight: Why resist coming to an agreement? Is it worth the stress? SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)  You might want to open up a conversation and get to the root of the problem. Could you be swallowing anger or doing something else that does not serve you well?

Review: Rapper Rick Ross is top-notch on ‘God Forgives’

JONATHAN LANDRUM JR. ASSOCIATED PRESS

Rick Ross, “God Forgives, I Don’t” (Maybach Music Group/Def Jam)

Throughout his career, Rick Ross has declared himself a “bawse.” On his latest album, “God Forgives, I Don’t,” the Miami rapper continues to live up to his catchphrase, proving he’s one of the top bosses not just in hip-hop, but in music period. His fifth solo album in six years is loaded with undeniable quality tunes, making his new offering his most well-balanced piece of work to date. It’s clear that the burly, bearded Ross — who normally dons black shades — has made strides as a lyricist and storyteller. His husky voice is full of bravado with eloquence that is easy to digest. He stays in his familiar lane, rapping about grimy street life, his large stash of cash, luxury cars, women and his rise from rags to riches. But what makes Ross special on “God Forgives” is

his colorful perspective. That is certainly evident on “Pirates” where he raps, “Fascination with fortune afford me mansion and Porsches, panoramas, abortions, marijuana imported, dreams of getting cream and never to be extorted, seen so many things be preposterous not to record it.” On “Maybach Music IV,” which features Ne-Yo, Ross continues his popular work with producers J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League, who again craft a stunning track highlighted by smooth saxophone and other instruments. Ross measures up with Jay-Z and Dr. Dre on “3 Kings,” and his collaboration with Andre 3000 on “Sixteen” makes for an enjoyable listen. The album is also filled with other club bangers and street anthems, such as “Hold Me Back” and “Ten Jesus Pieces,” featuring Stalley. Of Ross’ four albums, three have debuted at No. 1 and three have reached gold status; another debuted at No. 2, and the only one not to reach gold is close to it.

With “God Forgives,” Ross is consistent, and it sounds classic. CHECK OUT THIS TRACK: “Diced Pineapples” is a silky, piano-driven tune that includes Wale and Drake — just as a singer.

NA T I O N A L BRIEFS BRONCOS, CLADY CALL OFF TALKS ABOUT NEW DEAL

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — Ryan Clady rejected both a $50 million offer and the chance to talk about it. The Denver Broncos and the two-time Pro Bowl left tackle, who will play a crucial role in protecting Peyton Manning’s blind side this season, ended talks Monday on a contract extension until after the 2012 season. Clady walked off the field behind his fellow offensive linemen after Monday night’s practice and declined to discuss his contract situation. John Elway told The Denver Post that while negotiations hit at impasse, the Broncos were “looking forward to Ryan playing a key role on our team this year and hope he will be a Bronco for many seasons to come.” Clady will make $3.5 million this season in the final season of a five-year deal he signed as a rookie out of Boise State in 2008. The Broncos had reportedly offered the fifth-year pro $50 million over five years with $28 million guaranteed.

minutes after swimming a semifinal heat, the Colorado teenager won the first gold medal of what figures to be a dazzling career, rallying to win the 100-meter backstroke Monday. “Indescribable,” the 17year -old Franklin said. “I still can’t believe that hap-

American teenager Missy Franklin won the women’s 100meter backstroke before Matt Grevers led a 1-2 finish for the U.S. in the same men’s race. Franklin, a 17-year-old from Colorado and best hope for the U.S. program in the postMichael Phelps era, had a brief 13-minute break after taking the final qualifying spot in the 200 freestyle semifinals before she had to get back into the water for the backstroke final. No problem. Australia’s Emily Seebohm, the top qualifier, led at the turn and was under world-record pace, but Franklin showed a remarkable finishing kick. With her arms twirling, the 6-foot-1 swimmer passed the Aussie in the final 25 meters and lunged toward the wall for a winning time of 58.33 seconds. Grevers then produced another rally in the men’s 100 backstroke and Nick Thomas made it a 1-2 finish for the Americans, touching for silver in 52.92. The twin backstroke victories made up for a disappointing performance by U.S. star Ryan Lochte, who faded to fourth in the loaded 200 freestyle — won by France’s Yannick Agnel. Fifteen-year-old Ruta Meilutyte of Lithuania got the win in the 100 breaststroke, holding off a late charge from world champion Rebecca Soni of the United States. There was a familiar sister act at Wimbledon on Monday, with Serena and Venus Williams each advancing in the singles tournament, then combining for a doubles win. Other major champions to advance in singles included Roger Federer, Lleyton Hewitt, top-seeded Victoria Azarenka, Kim Clijsters, Petra Kvitova, Ana Ivanovic and three-time Wimbledon runner -up Andy Roddick. Venus Williams waited an extra day because of rain to begin her bid for a record fourth gold medal in Olympic tennis, then defeated recent

French Open runner-up Sara Errani of Italy 6-3, 6-1. Serena completed a July sweep of Poland’s Radwanska sisters by beating Urszula in the second round, 6-2, 6-3. She defeated Radwanska’s sister, Agnieszka, in the Wimbledon final this month. Federer also reached the third round, beating Julien Benneteau of France 6-2, 6-2. “What a good day for fans between me, Venus, Roger and all the other players,” Serena Williams said. “It’s really such a great experience.” Also Monday, Switzerland stripped a soccer player of his Olympic accreditation after he sent a threatening and racist message on Twitter about South Koreans. The comments by Michel Morganella came hours after the Swiss lost to South Korea, 2-1, on Sunday. The 23-year-old player said in the tweet that South Koreans “can go burn” and referred to them as a “bunch of mongoloids.” Swiss Olympic team chief Gian Gilli said via a translator at a news conference that Morganella “discriminated against, insulted and violated the dignity of the South Korea soccer team as well as the South Korean people. Morganella later released a contrite statement through the Swiss Olympic team: “I am sincerely sorry for the people of South Korea, for the players, but equally for the Swiss delegation and Swiss soccer in general. It’s clear that I’m accepting the consequences.” A Colombian soccer player was suspended for two games after U.S. forward Abby Wambach said she was “sucker-punched” in the right eye by Lady Andrade during the 3-0 win by the U.S. on Saturday. Wambach called for FIFA to take action, while Andrade called it “an accident.” FIFA says its disciplinary committee suspended Andrade for a group match Tuesday against France and for the quarterfinals if Colombia advances.

Fred Couples wins Senior British Open by 2 shots

TURNBERRY, Scotland (AP) — Fred Couples won the Senior British Open by two strokes over Gary Hallberg on Sunday after holing a 25-foot putt to finish with consecutive birdies. The 1992 Masters champion shot a 3under 67 in the final round to finish at 9under 271 on the Ailsa course and win his first tournament in Britain. Hallberg shot a 66, equaling the best round of the day with American Mark Calcavecchia and Carl Mason. English pair Barry Lane (69) and Mason and American Dick Mast (67) had a share of third at 4 under. Overnight leader Bernhard Langer dropped five shots in five holes on the way home to shoot a 75 and slip into a tie for sixth. “I’ve never won an Open Championship, so this is the next best thing. And I believe I now get into the (British) Open at Muirfield next year, which is great,” Couples said. “It was a fun day out there. Bernhard and I were neck and neck for a long time. Then I saw Gary had birdied the 17th to draw level, so I knew I needed to birdie 17. I hit a couple of great shots down 17 and two-putted for birdie, then the hole got in the way for my birdie putt at 18. “It’s my biggest senior tour win by far on a truly great golf course. I can now say I won the Senior British Open at Turnberry in really challenging weather.” Couples was locked in a struggle with Langer until the German double bogeyed No. 12 and the American birdied for a threeshot swing. Langer then bogeyed three holes in a row from No. 14 to slip out of contention.

over Marcus Browne, handing the U.S. team its first loss in London after a 4-0 start. Hooper and Browne put on perhaps the best three minutes of the day after both fighters cautiously fought the first two rounds. The Australian raised his aggression in the third to overwhelm Browne, a Staten Island, N.Y., product. In the afternoon session, Jordan’s first Olympic boxer, Ihab Almatbouli, won his opening bout, while Afghanistan’s first Olympic boxer, flyweight Ajmal Faisal, was eliminated in the evening. Cuban teenager Robeisy Ramirez and Iranian light heavyweight Ehsan Rouzbahani also advanced. Light heavyweight Oleksandr Gvozdyk earned the powerful Ukrainian team’s first victory in London, forcing a standingeight count for Belarus’ Mikhail Dauhaliavets midway through an 18-10 decision.

Volleyball

The U.S. women’s team beat Brazil in an early rematch of the Beijing Games final. Destinee Hooker had 23 points and Jordan Larson added 18 for the top-ranked Americans, who won 25-18, 2517, 22-25, 25-21 to improve to 2-0 in pool play at Earls Court. Sheilla Castro had 15 points for No. 2 Brazil, which was energized after a third-set victory but lost on Logan Tom’s floater in the fourth set. The American women have never won an Olympic gold medal in volleyball. China, South Korea, Russia and Italy also posted four-set victories, and Britain edged Algeria in five.

Beach volleyball

Two-time gold medalists Misty May-Treanor and Kerri Walsh Jennings earned their 16th consecutive Olympic victory, beating the Czech Republic in straight sets. It was May-Treanor’s 35th birthday when the match started, but because of TV schedules and a long match earlier in the session, it ended shortly after midnight Tuesday. Jake Gibb and Sean Rosenthal lost to Poland in pool play, the first setback for the Ameri-

the first time, beating veteran Karrie Webb and overnight co-leader Stacy Lewis by two shots. It was Park’s second LPGA Tour title and the first since the U.S. Open in 2008. She finished with a 17-under 271. “It feels great. It was four years ago but it feels longer than that,” Park said. “I finished the round with some really strong putting today.” The 24-year-old Park made birdies on the last three holes to coast home. Lewis, who shared the overnight lead with Park, made a run at the end, but her long putt for eagle on the 18th came too late. China’s Shanshan Feng made a late charge as well, shooting a 66 that also included an eagle on the 18th. She finished tied for fourth at 14 under with South Korean amateur Hyo Joo Kim (68) and American Natalie Gulbis (68). Feng’s shot of the day drew a roar from the grandstand on No. 18 when she chipped out of the bunker, and the ball looped around in a semi-circle from right to left then dropped in for an eagle. The pressure was on Park to respond, and she did, sinking a birdie on No. 16 to move to 15 under.

Equestrian

Zara Phillips, Queen Elizabeth II’s granddaughter, raced through the difficult and dangerous cross-country portion of her first Olympic equestrian eventing competition, finishing clean and well under the pace time. Princes William and Harry watched her from the main equestrian arena, joined by William’s wife, Kate, and Camilla, the wife of Prince Charles. Seated alongside them were Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie, the daughters of Prince Andrew. Phillips’ mother, Princess Anne, watched from the grounds of the twisty, hilly 3.5mile course dotted with 28 obstacles. Several of the riders who fell wore protective vests that inflated much like airbags upon impact. One of them, Hawley Bennett-Awad of Canada, was in the hospital under observation for a concussion and fracture to a bone at the base of the spine. There were no other serious injuries reported among the

This was quite the Olympic debut for Maggie Steffens, who scored seven goals to lead the U.S. women’s team to a 14-13 victory over Hungary. Despite a team full of veterans, it was the 19-year-old Steffens who led the way with sharp shooting from outside for the Americans, who are looking to win their first gold in the event.

ANCASTER, Ontario (AP) — Four straight birdies put Scott Piercy into the mix early. One big par at the end made him a winner Sunday at the Canadian Open. Piercy won for the second time in his career when he closed with a 3-under 67, and William McGirt and Robert Garrigus stumbled on the closing stretch at Hamilton Golf & Country Club to finish a stroke back. McGirt, atop the leaderboard for much of the final round, had his first three-putt bogey of the week on the 15th hole when he ran a 45-foot putt some 15 feet by the hole. Tied for the lead playing the 18th, he put his approach into the bunker and blasted out to 18 feet, missing the par putt that would have forced a playoff. McGirt closed with a 69.

The Americans are 2 for 2 after Abby Johnston and Kelci Bryant earned a silver in 3-meter synchro springboard Sunday, ending a 12-year medal drought. Britain’s Tom Daley and Peter Waterfield led through the first three rounds, but botched their fourth dive and finished fourth.

Fencing

Fencer Yana Shemyakina of Ukraine beat defending champion Britta Heidemann of Germany 9-8 to win the Olympic gold medal in women’s individual epee. The event was overshadowed by an hour-long delay following an appeal by the South Korean team after Heidemann’s 6-5 victory over Shin A-lam in the semifinals. South Korean officials argued the match was already over when Heidemann scored the winning point in the last second, but the jury finally upheld its decision.

See OLYMPICS, Page B3 Garrigus, the 54-hole leader, missed six putts inside 8 feet. The last one was the most costly. He three-putted from long range just off the green on the 16th, missing an 8footer for par that left him one shot behind. He missed a 15-foot birdie putt on the 18th to force a playoff and had to settle for a 70.

a-tat fashion, following up Franklin’s win with one of his own in the men’s 100 back. For good measure, Nick Thoman made it a 1-2 finish for the red, white and blue by taking the silver. Rebecca Soni nearly pulled out a third U.S. gold, rallying furiously on the return leg of the 100 breaststroke. But she couldn’t quite catch blazing Lithuanian Ruta Meilutyte, a gold medalist at the tender age of 15. Good thing for the U.S. that Franklin and the other Americans are coming through. Phelps missed the podium in his 2012 Olympic debut, and Lochte has turned two straight disappointing performances after opening the games with a dominant win in the 400 individual medley. He finished fourth and off the podium Monday night in the 200 freestyle, which France’s Yannick Agnel won by a full body length against a field with gold medalists galore. On Sunday, Lochte anchored the U.S. in the 4x100 free relay, taking over with a seemingly comfortable lead. But Agnel chased him down on the final leg, giving France the gold. Now, another defeat. “I did my best,” Lochte said. “I guess sometimes you win, sometimes you lose. I gave it 110 percent. There’s probably some things I messed up on, but you live and learn. (Agnel is) a great racer. There’s no doubt about it.

just being politically correct. They know they are still a work in progress, having only been together training for two weeks, and are going to play some tough games during the tournament. The game against Angola was expected to be an easy romp — and it was — with the U.S. overwhelming the Olympic newcomer. “It’s definitely about ourselves,” said U.S. guard Sue Bird. “That’s how coach (Geno) Auriemma coaches in college. It’s his philosophy. Never about how much you win by or lose by, it’s how we played. Especially in a game like tonight where going in we kind of had a feeling it might be like this.

She said her teammates did a good job of getting her the ball. “The goal is to continue to get better every game and I think that was what we did” against Angola, Parker said.

Danish sailor Jonas HoeghChristensen is proving to be much more than a one-day wonder in the Finn class in the Olympic regatta. He’s beaten British star Ben Ainslie in each of the first four races and remained in first place overall on Weymouth Bay on the English Channel. The 49er skiffs, the fastest boats in the Olympics, made their colorful regatta debut. Denmark’s Allan Norregaard and Peter Lang were in first place with six points after the first two of 15 races.

He’s quick and he showed it last night and tonight. I’m happy for him. He did good.” Franklin, who was rattled less than two weeks before the Olympics by the Aurora theater shooting not far from her home, showed tremendous resiliency racing with such a short break following the semis of the 200 freestyle. She didn’t even go to the practice pool for a warmdown, doing her strokes in the nearby diving well to save precious time. She barely advanced in the first race, qualifying for Tuesday night’s final with the eighth-fastest time, but she was clearly saving something for the one with a medal on the line. She’s still got five more events to go, having started her Olympics with a relay bronze and leaving plenty of time to come away from these games as America’s best hope in the postPhelps era. The winningest Olympian ever plans to retire after these games. Australia’s Emily Seebohm, the top qualifier, led at the turn and was under world-record pace, but Franklin showed a remarkable finishing kick. With her arms whirling, the 6-foot-1 swimmer passed the Aussie in the final 25 meters and lunged toward the wall for a winning time of 58.33 seconds. She broke into a big smile but was clearly exhausted, her head dropping back against the wall. Seebohm settled for silver in 58.68 and Japan’s Aya Terakawa took bronze in 58.83. “You never know until you see that scoreboard, so I was just going as fast as I could until I got

won one of their 25 games in the Olympics since Congo — formerly known as Zaire — first qualified in the 1996 Atlanta Games. Nigeria owns the only victory, beating Korea by four points in 2004. The Americans had played African teams twice and routed them both. The U.S. beat Zaire by 60 points in 1996 and then Mali by 56 at the Beijing Games in 2008. Angola (0-2) did fare a little better than its continental neighbors. The team stayed close to the Americans for the first quarter, only trailing by 10 at the end of the period. Then the U.S. put the game away outscoring the African country 19-6 in the second period. Parker hit two reverse lay-ins in the quarter. The Americans continued the rout in the second half. The strong crowd emptied out early in the final period knowing the outcome wasn’t in doubt. Next up for the U.S. is Turkey, which improved to 2-0 in pool play with a 61-57 victory over the Czech Republic. The Americans also will face China and the Czech Republic. The U.S. beat the Czechs in the finals of the 2010 world championship to qualify for the London Games. In other games Saturday, France shocked Australia 74-70 in OT. It was the first loss by the Aussies to anyone other than the U.S. in an Olympic game since 1996.

The Malaysian, who tore right ankle ligaments at the Thomas Cup in late May, beat Ville Lang of Finland 21-8, 1421, 21-11. Defending champion Lin Dan of China eased through his opener against Scott Evans of Ireland 21-8, 21-14. For the women, world champion Wang Yihan and No. 2-seeded Wang Xin also advanced with ease. Also, Wang Yihan opened her first Olympics with a 21-8, 2116 win over Michele Li of Canada, and Wang Xin beat Rena Wang of the United States 21-8, 21-6.

Thoman joined his teammate on the medal podium at 52.97, a finish they were thinking about all along. “Going into the ready room, we were both just sitting there and we shared a look and shared a thought,” Thoman said. “I think that was in both of our heads.” Grevers didn’t notice right away that Americans took the top two spots. “I must be selfish because it took me a good 10 seconds to realize he got second,” Grevers quipped. “That’s something I should do right away. But when I noticed, that moment became much more special. To know that we can go 1-2 in that event, again really shows the USA’s dominance in backstroke right now when we’re able to step up.” Japan’s Ryosuke Irie was third in 52.97. “I’ve been watching the Olympics for as long as I can remember,” Thoman said. “The first one I really remember is the ’92 Barcelona Games and just watching guys back then. Seeing Lenny Krayzelburg, my idol, and then Aaron Piersol, again my idol, who I got to train with for a little while.

three-time world champion Kohei Uchimura on pommel horse, the last routine. Japan jumped from fourth to second after judges revised Uchimura’s score, bumping Britain down to bronze and Ukraine off the medals podium. It was the British men’s first team medal in a century, and it set off raucous celebrations at the O2 Arena. Even Princes William and Harry joined in. “To win a medal in your home games, I’ll take that any day,” Kristian Thomas said. “We never actually had the silver in our hands, so there’s no real disappointment.” Tell that to the Japanese, who were bested by the Chinese yet again. Japan was the runner-up to China in Beijing, as well as at the last four world championships. And unlike last year’s world championships, where the Japanese had appeared to close the gap on China, this one wasn’t even close. China finished with 275.997 points, more than four points better than Japan. China now has gone eight years without losing at a major competition. “At the very beginning it was fourth for Japan so I couldn’t say anything. I couldn’t think anything,” a somber Uchimura said. “I was thinking, ‘It’s fourth, it’s fourth.’ Even after it was changed, I was not too happy.” The Americans weren’t all that happy, either. Bronze medalists four years ago, they could practically feel their first gold since 1984 after finishing No. 1 in qualifying, with captain Jon Horton jokingly asking if they could claim their prizes. But everyone gets a do-over in team finals, and whatever momentum the Americans had evaporated when Danell Leyva and John Orozco fell on pommel horse, their second event. They wound up fifth, six points behind China and almost two

Australia was strong in the men’s four at the rowing regatta, setting one of two Olympicbest times on a sunny final day of heat racing. Britain, which has won this event at the last three games and is also the world champion, won the second heat and United States took the third heat. Earlier, Britain’s Katherine Grainger’s quest for an elusive Olympic gold got off to a perfect start when she broke the Olympic best in the women’s double sculls with partner Anna Watkins in the first heat.

The baby-faced, 6-foot-6 Frenchman did it again in the 200 free, leading from start to finish in perhaps the most star -studded race of these games — even without Phelps, who passed up a chance to defend his Olympic title. That might have been a good move by Phelps. It was hard to see anyone beating Agnel on this night, as he pulled away to win by a full body length in 1 minute, 43.14 seconds. No one came close to challenging him, and he looked just as strong at the end as he did at the beginning. South Korea’s Park Tae-hwan and China’s Sun Yang tied for the silver in 1:44.93. But Lochte, the reigning world champion who seemed poised to have a huge Olympics just 48 hours earlier, faded out of the medals. So did world-record holder Paul Biedermann of Germany.

behind Britain. “There’s definitely disappointment,” Horton said. “We are one of the best teams in the world.” But China is in a class by itself. The Chinese have been like playground bullies most of the last decade, sauntering into every competition and scooping up as many gold medals as possible: T eam golds at the last five world championships and Olympic titles in Sydney and Beijing, where they won all but one of the men’s medals. They probably would have claimed that, too, had they bothered to contend for vault. But with most of the Beijing squad moving on and a rule change putting a premium on allarounders, China has looked — dare we say it? — vulnerable of late. Chen Yibing, a double gold medalist in Beijing, even tried to dampen the expectations this spring, saying it would be “extremely hard” for the Chinese to defend their team title. It didn’t get any easier when Teng Haibin, the 2004 gold medalist on pommel horse, dropped out with an injury Thursday and had to be replaced by Guo Weiyang. An abysmal performance in qualifying only furthered the doubt when they finished sixth. Sixth! While everyone else was gleefully expecting the end of a dynasty, China was as cocky and cool as always. “We have the abilities and the skills,” said Chen Yibing, one of only two holdovers from the Beijing squad. Asked when he knew his team would win, he said: “After getting up from bed.” China doesn’t have Japan’s stylish elegance, Britain’s youthful exuberance or even the Americans’ flair for the dramatic. What the Chinese do have, however, is sheer, brute strength. Chen set the tone in the very first event on still rings, where he is the defending Olympic gold medalist and four-time world champion. Simply watching the event makes most folks grab their ar ms and scream for mercy. He flips from

Soni tried to make it three in a row, but Meilutyte dashed those hopes. Competing for the first time on a major international stage, the 15-year -old showed her strong performances in the prelims and semis were no fluke. She built a big lead on the outward lap, then held off the 2008 Olympic silver medalist on the return. Meilutyte touched in 1:05.47, while Soni’s rally came up eight-hundredths of the second short. Japan took yet another bronze with Satomi Suzuki in 1:06.46. Meilutyte broke into tears on the medal stand, the enormity of her accomplishment at such a young age finally sinking in. She became the first Lithuanian to win a swimming medal, and took her country’s first gold in any sport since a shooting gold in 2004.

How about this?” The cables stayed perfectly still when he did a somersault into a handstand, the veins bulging in his arms and neck the only signs of exertion. The Chinese only got better from there, with half their 18 scores at 15.6s or higher. Compare that to Japan, which had five, or the British, who had four. When Zhang’s feet slammed into the mat after his pommel horse routine, China’s last of the night, he let out a roar the rest of the world will be hearing for four years. While the rest of his teammates broke into their latest victory celebration, Chen leaned against a wall and buried his face in his hands, unable to stop the tears. “Our rivals were not necessarily stronger than in previous years,” Zhang said, “so we kept a cool mind.” Japan had to keep its cool, too. Uchimura lost control on his dismount, flailing wildly before he got his feet beneath him. Judges initially gave him just a 5.4 for difficulty, and his overall score of 13.466 left Japan in fourth place. But the Japanese coaches rushed to the judges to protest, saying Uchimura’s dismount should have been worth more. While judges huddled around a video screen, Uchimura and his teammates sat stone-faced against a wall. Finally it was announced that judges had revised Uchimura’s score, giving him an additional seven-tenths credit on his dismount. That boosted Japan’s total to 271.952, good enough for the silver medal but not the gold that Uchimura and his teammates crave. “This is the Olympics, and this is a special environment and we really couldn’t do as we planned,” Uchimura said. “It was really difficult.” Difficult, it seems, for everyone but the Chinese.

But I’ll bet they didn’t know the cemetery would charge a hefty fee for a second interment. Because your nephew spent his life with a woman who worked in a bar, there’s a certain symmetry to the idea of a whiskey bottle being used as his urn. I was told of a widow who did the same thing with her husband’s ashes — and then she had the bottle made into a lamp because her husband “lit up her life.” Someone should mention it to George’s grieving lady friend as a way to keep him with her until they can be buried (or scattered) somewhere together. #####

WASHINGTON (AP) — The U.S. Postal Service is bracing for a first-ever default on billions in payments due to the Treasury, adding to widening uncertainty about the mail agency’s solvency as first-class letters plummet and Congress deadlocks on ways to stem the red ink. With cash running perilously low, two legally required payments for future postal retirees’ health benefits — $5.5 billion due Wednesday, and another $5.6 billion due in September — will be left unpaid, the mail agency said Monday. Postal officials said they also are studying whether they may need to delay other obligations. In the coming months, a $1.5 billion payment is due to the Labor Department for workers compensation, which for now it expects to make, as well as millions in interest payments to the Treasury. The defaults won’t stir any kind of catastrophe in day-to-day mail service. Post offices will stay open, mail trucks will run, employees will get paid, current retirees will get

Banks are promoting electronic payments, citing in part the growing uncertainty of postal mail. The federal government will stop mailing paper checks starting next year for millions of people who receive Social Security and other benefits, paying via direct deposit or debit cards instead. First-class mail volume, which has fallen 25 percent since 2006, is projected to drop another 30 percent by 2016. Art Sackler, co-coordinator of the Coalition for a 21st Century Postal Service, a group representing the private-sector mailing industry, said the payment defaults couldn’t come at a worse time, as many major and midsized mailers are preparing their budgets for next year. “The impact of the postal default may not be seen by the public, but it will be felt by the business community,” he said. “Mailers will be increasingly wary about the stability of the Postal Service. The logical and likely move would be to divert more mail out of the system.”

health benefits. But a growing chorus of analysts, labor unions and business customers are troubled by continuing losses that point to deeper, longer-term financial damage, as the mail agency finds it increasingly preoccupied with staving off immediate bankruptcy while Congress delays on a postal overhaul bill. Postmaster General Patrick Donahoe has described a “crisis of confidence” amid the mounting red ink that could lead even once-loyal customers to abandon use of the mail. “I think for my generation it was a great asset — if you had a letter or package and you needed it to get up to the North Pole, you knew it would be delivered,” said Jim Husa, 87, of Lawrence, Mich., after stopping to mail letters recently at his local post office. Noting the mail agency’s financial woes, he added: “Times have changed, and we old-timers know that FedEx and UPS and the Internet seem to be making the Postal Service obsolete.”

WASHINGTON (AP) — Genetic test maker 23andMe is asking the Food and Drug Administration to approve its personalized DNA test in a move that, if successful, could boost acceptance of technology that is viewed skeptically by leading scientists who question its usefulness. 23andMe is part of a fledgling industry that allows consumers to peek into their genetic code for details about their ancestry and future health. The company’s saliva-based kits have attracted scrutiny for claiming to help users detect whether they are likely to develop illnesses like breast cancer, heart disease and Alzheimer’s. The biology of how DNA variations actually lead to certain diseases is still poorly understood, and many geneticists say such tests are built on flimsy evidence. For years, the Silicon Valley company has resis-

ted government regulation, arguing that it simply provides consumers with information, not a medical service. But now company executives say they are seeking gover nment approval — and the scientific credibility that comes with it. “It’s the next step for us to work with the FDA and actually say, ‘this is clinically relevant information and consumers should work with their physicians on what to do with it,’ “ said CEO and co-founder Anne Wojcicki, who is married to Google co-founder Sergey Brin. Google and Brin have invested millions in the privately held company, which is based in Mountain View, Calif. Wojcicki says the shift in strategy reflects the growing scope of the company’s test kit, which now measures the risks of developing more than 115 dif ferent diseases. 23andMe said Monday it submitted an initial batch

MILWAUKEE (AP) — State and county fairs in the sweltering and drought-stricken Midwest may see smaller livestock and produce this year. The dozen pigs Greg Marzahl and his 15-year-old daughter are bringing to the Wisconsin State Fair are about 15 pounds smaller than the normal 275 pounds. The heat is affecting their virility and appetites, he said. “We’ve had a hard time getting them to eat enough to get that condition on them,” said Marzahl, who has about 35 show pigs and a few lambs on his 160-acre farm in Oxford. The Wisconsin fair opens its 11-day run Thursday in the Milwaukee suburb of West Allis. State fairs also are set to begin in the next two weeks in Indiana, Iowa and Illinois. Those states also have been hit by unusual heat and drought. Marzahl still plans to bring his pigs to the fair, expecting

his competition will have smaller animals too.

of seven health-related tests to the FDA for review. The company plans to submit 100 additional tests in separate installments before the end of the year. Tests involving family history and nonmedical traits will not be reviewed, since they don’t fall under FDA oversight.

The FDA already regulates a variety of genetic tests administered by health care providers, such as those given to pregnant women to detect cystic fibrosis in a developing fetus.

But it remains to be seen whether the FDA will endorse 23andMe’s commercial approach, which sidesteps doctors by sending results directly to consumers. 23andMe and its peers believe there is a mainstream market for personalized genetic information, though it is still very much a niche field.

Drought may mean fewer animals at fairs
