LONDON (AP) — One by one, the Americans thundered down the runway, soared high above the vault and slammed into the mat. Boom! Boom! Boom! When the fireworks were over, so was everybody else’s chance for the gold medal. The Americans lived up to their considerable hype and then some Tuesday night, routing silver medalist Russia and everybody else on their way to their first Olympic title in women’s gymnastics since 1996. Their score of 183.596 was a whopping five points better than Russia’s, and set off a debate over whether this is the best U.S. team of all time. ... - PAGE B1

NEW DELHI (AP) — New Delhi’s Metro shut down and hundreds of coal miners were trapped underground after three Indian electric grids collapsed in a cascade Tuesday, cutting power to 620 million people in the world’s biggest blackout.

A traffic jam follows a power outage and rains at the DelhiGurgaon road on the outskirts of New Delhi, Tuesday.

While Indians were furious and embarrassed, many took the crisis in stride, inured by the constant — though far less widespread — outages triggered by the huge electricity deficit stymieing the development of this would-

In all, 20 of India’s 28 states — with double the population of the United States — were hit in a region stretching from the border with Myanmar in the northeast to the Pakistani border about 1,870 miles away.

Hospitals, factories and the airports switched automatically to their diesel generators during the hours-long cut across half of India. Many homes relied on backup systems powered by truck batteries. And hundreds of millions of India’s poorest had no electricity to lose.

The crisis was the second record-breaking outage in two days. India’s northern grid failed Monday, leaving 370 million people powerless for much of the day, in a collapse blamed on states

Those are just a few examples of new technologies that might be tested in the Roswell area if the Center for Innovation, Testing and Evaluation, a $1 billion research facility, settles in Chaves County. The private technology company Pegasus Global Holdings announced in May its intention to construct the uninhabited, 15square-mile smart city in Lea County near Hobbs, where researchers would test a range of innovative technologies, particularly in renewable energy. But the company, which had considered more than a dozen New Mexico communities, pulled out of the arrangement in early July due to land acquisition problems, and has reopened its recruitment process.

Fed jury gets gun-smuggling case

LAS CRUCES (AP) — A family that owns a Demingarea gun store ignored their responsibilities by selling weapons and ammunition to a man who told them the arms were bound for Mexican drug cartels, prosecutors said Tuesday in closing trial arguments. A 12-member federal jury got the case later in the day and is scheduled to resume deliberations today. Carrying a 30-pound, 29inch Barrett .50-caliber rifle through the courtroom, Assistant U.S. Attorney Aaron Jordan told jurors the federal gunsmuggling trial of the Reese family boils down to rights and responsibilities. “The defendants have the right to make money selling

guns ... but they have no right to arm cartels,” Jordan said. Defense attorney Robert Gorence, however, contended the family was set up by a self-proclaimed cartel member who made a deal with federal prosecutors after being arrested on marijuana distribution charges. Gorence, who represents Rick Reese, said Jose Roman’s turn to informant was not leading to raids on stash houses or cartel members. “Instead, this Justice Department is targeting an American family,” he said. “They want to go after an American family that’s paying their taxes and raising their sons the best they can.”

Jordan argued the family’s responsibility was to refuse to sell to Roman, but the evidence shows they knowingly ignored it. “They sold guns to straw purchasers and to a man who told them again and again he would take the guns to Mexico,” Jordan said. Gorence said prosecutors failed to prove the family had any knowledge the guns were going to Mexico. During the trial, prosecutors played tapes of Roman talking in the store. In one of the recordings, he says, “This ammo is going to Mexico, and it’s not coming back. And if it comes back it’s going to be on some guy’s body.” See GUN, Page A3

Now in possession of the necessary documents and funding for the project, Corn must select an irrigation system for the site. “You can’t do anything in this country without being able to supply water,“ he said. Corn told the Daily Record in March that lack of funding has resulted in the cemetery not having been watered in two and a half years, leaving much of

Taylor Hamill poses with her pig after the unnamed piggy earned grand champion in the Swine Show at the Chaves County 4-H & FFA Fair, Tuesday.

Taylor’s pig cleans up at 4-H & FFA swine show NOAH VERNAU RECORD STAFF WRITER

Whoever said pigs are filthy never met Taylor Hamill’s entry at the Chaves County 4-H and FFA Fair, where Hamill’s pig cleaned up as the grand champion of the Swine Show, Tuesday. Hamill, 16, is the daughter of Chad and Jenni Hamill, and has been a member of the Hagerman chapter of FFA for three years. “It feels great,” Hamill said after her win, “it was a great experience. We actually built a new barn this year, so we were trying it out, seeing how it worked. It ended up working well for us!” Hamill said she has been showing pigs for three years, having previously won reserve grand champion in the Swine Show when she was in eighth grade. She said that despite her successes at the fair, she harbors no secrets. “Just work hard,” she said when asked for advice. “... I’m pretty sure we use the same (strategies) as everybody else; it just happens to be what the pig looks like from when it’s a baby and how it tends to grow up.”

Hamill said her hard work included mock shows each Monday to get her pig used to being in a show ring, and feeding the pig every two hours before a show. She had been working with Tuesday’s big winner since June 1, and said that while she has not named the pig, she might easily call him ‘Champ’ until the pig is sold. “I love it, I would recommend everybody do it,” Hamill said. “They’re really easy animals. They don’t require much work. (They’re) a lot easier than most animals out here. “And the best part about winning is we get to take it to the sale, and sell it — and, hopefully, we can find a breeder so we can breed it and have more for next year.” The Hamill family was well-represented at Tuesday’s Swine Show, as the reserve grand champion went to Hamill’s sister Hannah. Hannah, 13, has been in the Hagerman chapter of FFA for two years. “I just love showing,” Hannah said, “it’s so much fun. I really like animals. Pigs happen to be my favorite.”

Monsoons take a break ALBUQUERQUE (AP) — The summer monsoon season brings New Mexico some of its biggest rainstorms. But it appears to have taken a break this week. The National Weather Service in Albuquerque says the moisture plume has been shifting west for the last couple of days, leaving dry weather across much of New Mexico.

The Albuquerque Journal reports that the forecast calls for temperatures in the upper 90s all week with no relief from the dry weather over the weekend.

The lack of rain means an increased risk for wildfires.

Long-range forecasts give no clues as when the monsoon moisture might return.

SANTA FE (AP) — Community activists and social services advocates used a plate of waffles Tuesday as part of a lobbying campaign to urge Republican Gov. Susana Martinez to support expanding Medicaid to provide health care to nearly 150,000 lowincome New Mexicans. One of the biggest issues confronting the Legislature and governor next year is whether to broaden eligibility for Medicaid under terms of a federal health care overhaul. Medicaid provides medical services for a fourth of New Mexico’s population and will account for about $1 of every $5 spent by state government in this year’s $5.6 billion budget. The U.S. Supreme Court ruled last month that the federal government can’t force New Mexico and other states to expand the program in 2014 by threatening to withhold federal aid. An Albuquerque-based group representing working families, Organizers in the Land of Enchantment, or OLE, delivered a plate of waffles to the gover nor’s office, saying they want Martinez to “stop waffling” and back the Medicaid expansion. Albuquerque day care worker Dana Gallegos said her husband has been waiting for a year to visit a dentist because the family can’t cover medical costs and household expenses. “Without Medicaid and if you make minimum wage, it’s either go to the doctor or pay your bills,” said Gallegos, who was among about a dozen activists who stopped by the governor’s office. The couple’s 3-year old currently qualifies for Medicaid. Gallegos hopes she and her husband will become eligible if the state agrees to expand the program. Scott Dar nell, a spokesman for the governor, said Martinez hasn’t made a decision on Med-

icaid but will do what “best protects and sustains basic health care services for those most in need.” Since taking office last year, the gover nor has supported increased state spending on Medicaid. Darnell criticized OLE and its lobbying tactics with the plate of waffles. “This is a shameless stunt by a far left-wing group that cares more about playing politics than protecting health care,” he said. The Human Services Department estimates state spending on Medicaid will increase by nearly 7 percent, or $496 million, from 2014 through 2020 if Medicaid eligibility is expanded and nearly 150,000 additional people are enrolled. The federal gover nment says it will pay most of the costs of the proposed expansion through 2020, with an additional $6 billion potentially flowing into New Mexico. Sen. John Arthur Smith, a Deming Democrat and chairman of a Senate committee that handles the budget, said Tuesday he expected a heated debate in next year’s Legislature over Medicaid. He said the state must decide whether it can afford the long-ter m costs of expanding the health care program while meeting other obligations such as public education, which accounts for nearly half its budget. Smith said he’s also worried the federal government may be forced to pare back its spending to reduce the nation’s deficit. The federal government initially will pay 100 percent of the Medicaid expansion and that will drop to 90 percent in 2020. “What happens when they’re wrestling with the federal budget and they change the rules and it’s no longer a 100 percent or a 90-10, but it’s a 5050” split, Smith said.

ALBUQUERQUE (AP) — The state Livestock Board says it will have an inspector at fairs across New Mexico to prevent the spread of a virus that gives animals blister-like lesions. The board passed an emergency rule this week aimed at containing vesicular stomatitis. The disease primarily affects horses, cattle and swine. While not fatal, it limits an animal’s ability to eat and move around. The rule encourages a designated veterinarian

at livestock events in the state to inspect animals. Those originating from New Mexico and participating only in state events can enter with a clean physical inspection or health certification issued within the previous five days.

Livestock board takes action to prevent disease

New Mexico is the only state this year with confirmed cases of the disease. Most of the nearly 30 suspected or confirmed cases are in animals along the middle Rio Grande.

Raider steals the spotlight from her person Jessica Burson after he was named the grand champion meat goat at the 4-H & FFA Fair, Tuesday.

Jessica’s Raider wins top meat goat prize


Two goats are better than one. While that’s not exactly a popular phrase, the statement certainly rang true for 18-year-old Jessica Burson, who took home the grand champion and reserve grand champion titles in the meat goat competition at the Chaves County 4-H & FFA Fair, Tuesday. The Roswell resident is the daughter of Cody and Cheri Burson, and a representative of the Goddard FFA and Barn Buddies 4-H Club. She has been showing goats and lambs since she was 8 years old and has her morning routine down to a science. She begins her morning regimen by allowing her goats to go outside and exercise with her dogs. She then feeds them, then walks them for about 30 minutes. Finally, she works on show techniques so their endurance is built up for competitions. For the average person, this schedule might be difficult with just one goat, let alone two. Try 12. Burson said she enters about eight shows a year and picks from her herd of 12 goats which ones will be

entered in a particular contest. Her goat Raider was crowned the grand champion, while her second, unnamed, took second. Winning both titles came as an unexpected, yet pleasant surprise. She said she enjoyed reaping the rewards of her efforts. “A lot of it is dedication and hard work,” she said. “I enjoy doing it and winning is kind of the cherry on top,” she said. “I just enjoy being out at the barn with everyone, so it was just exciting to win both.” Burson described the show as a “muscle contest and a beauty pageant combined,” because of how the judges critique the different parts of the animal. She also said that while it does take a great amount of effort to get her goats into tiptop shape, it’s activity that means a great deal to her. “It’s a lot of hard work,” she said. “These kids spend all summer and part of the school year just working with their animals every day. It’s also something that my family does a lot and we get to spend quality time together. I wouldn’t trade it for the world.”

Heist nets thief guns, jewelry

•The police were dispatched to the 700 block of West Hervey Street, Tuesday, after subjects broke into a residence and removed $2,000 worth of jewelry, a 12-gauge shotgun, a single-shot 20-gauge shotgun and a .22 caliber long rifle. The victim told officials that she had filed a previous complaint about threats on June 28. •Police responded to a call in the 1700 block of North Kentucky Avenue, Monday, where subjects kicked in the door to a home and removed a laptop computer valued at $800. Damages were estimated at $200.


Police were called to the 100 block of East Summit Street, Monday. An employee of Tobosa reported that someone had been making withdrawals and purchases with money from the bank accounts of two of their

clients. He stated that purchases and withdrawals had been made from various locations far from the Wilshire Boulevard residence and neither individual had transport to the locations. The losses from one account were $127. The other account was depleted.


Police received a walk-in report of theft, Monday. The victim reported that an 18-inch stone angel, valued at $1,500, was taken from a gravesite at South Park Cemetery. Anyone having information about these or any other crime is asked to contact Crime Stoppers, 888-594-TIPS (8477). Callers may remain anonymous and could be eligible for a reward.

stalled across the country and traffic lights went out, causing widespread jams in New Delhi. West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee asked office workers to go home and rushed generators to coal mines to rescue trapped miners. By evening, power had been restored to New Delhi and the remote northeast, and much of the northern and easter n grids were back on line. Electricity officials said the system would not be back to 100 percent until today. The blackouts came amid consumer anger with the recent increase in power fees, including a 26 percent hike in Delhi, that government of ficials said were needed to pay for the steep rise in fuel costs. The Confederation of Indian Industry said the two outages cost business hundreds of millions of dollars, though they did not affect the financial center of Mumbai and the global outsourcing powerhouses of Bangalore and Hyderabad in the south. Like many, the group demanded a widespread refor m of India’s power sector, which has been unable to keep up with the soaring demand for electricity as the economy expanded and Indians grew more af fluent and energy hungry.

and Rescue departments were dispatched to 1423 E. Fourth, Odessa, close to midnight, after receiving a call about a man who had been wounded. Upon arrival, the first responders discovered Charles Jennings, 62, dead. Four days later, Marcus Kristopher “Ar kansas” Lacy was listed by the OPD as a person of interest. Starting on July 18, they posted Lacy’s picture on their website while he hitchhiked to Roswell and turned himself in to the Sheriff’s deputies where he confessed to the murder. “He (Lacy) called in with information on the murder. He said he thought he saw the guy (the victim) here in Roswell. I believe his conscience was bothering him,” Sherif f’s Lt. Daniel Ornelas said. The investigator from the Sheriff’s Office called OPD to confirm that a

cent in recent months, and many economists said the power deficit is dragging down India’s economy. Part of the problem is that India relies on coal for more than half its power generation and the coal supply is controlled by a near state monopoly that is widely considered a shambles. The power deficit was worsened this year by a weak monsoon that lowered hydroelectric generation, spurred farmers to use pumps to irrigate their fields long after the rains would normally have come and kept temperatures higher, keeping air conditioners and fans running longer. The opposition said officials should have located the first fault and fixed it before getting the whole system back on line Monday. “The power minister owes an answer to the prime minister, owes an answer to the nation why this is happening,” Bharatiya Janata Party spokesman Prakash Javadekar said. Instead, as part of a planned Cabinet shuffle, Shinde was promoted in the middle of the day to the powerful job of home minister, putting him in charge of the nation’s inter nal security even as the power crisis dragged on. By contrast, the power chief in the state of Uttar Pradesh was summarily fired by his chief minister Monday for his handling of the first power crisis. homicide had occurred on the date provided by Lacy and under similar circumstances as described by the suspect. The investigator received an affirmative response. The Odessa PD arrived in Roswell the next day to question the suspect. Lacy made a full confession, telling officials that he had stabbed Jennings during an argument over a bottle of whiskey. Lacy reported to the Sherif f’s Of fice that he was the one who contacted OPD to report Jennings had been wounded. Based on information obtained from the Chaves County Sheriff’s Office, OPD obtained an arrest warrant charging Lacy with first-degree murder. Sheriff Rob Coon said that the next step is extradition. Lacy will remain at the Chaves County Detention Center until he can be extradited to Texas. He is being held without bond.

Corporation members met with CITE [pronounced “city”] officials last Thursday in Albuquerque to learn more about the project, which EDC executive director Bob Donnell said presents an enticing opportunity for Roswell. “This is a long-ter m project in regards to the construction, as well as to the scientific lab operation and the testing that will go on there,” Donnell said. “So we’re talking 20-, 30-, 50- year projects. This is not one that’s going to be here and gone in a couple years down the road. It’s just too massive of a project for that.” The facility will take several years to build, involving about 3,500 people in its construction, and would employ at least 350 to 375 people in high-paying, fulltime positions, Donnell said. Donnell said EDC learned in Albuquerque that Roswell is presently one of five communities in New Mexico under consideration. He said Roswell offers CITE a lot of assets, including flat land, rail service, fiber optics, New Mexico Military Institute, a university, an airport and a skilled workforce. “There are many, many pluses,” Donnell said. “We also have the quality of life — the museums and golf courses and other things like that, which are important for their workers. So there are many reasons why Roswell would be attractive to them. “... But it’s still a competition. We know that we’re still competing against other communities.” CITE of ficials have stated that the 3-milewide, 5-mile-long testing lab would be modeled

that will work with the acreage, one that will work with all the obstacles that are out there like the flagpole that can’t be moved,” he said. As for the money received for the project, Corn said, “It’s enough to get the job done ... so far the dollar amount that the irrigation companies ... what they’ve given me as an initial number, I’ve got the money to cover it.” He added, “I don’t think there’s going to be any meaningful water put on

after the mid-sized American city of Rock Hill, S.C., and would be complete with highways, houses and commercial buildings, thus enabling researchers to conduct testing without interfering in the daily lives of inhabitants. The idea of an entire city with unoccupied homes, which will be equipped with everything from plumbing to appliances, has created national fanfare, causing many to dub the proposed facility a “ghost town.” Regarding the catchy label, Donnell said he disagrees with its implication. “I don’t want to build one, you don’t want to build one — no one wants to build a ghost town,” he said. “This is a scientific lab.” Donnell said that in addition to jobs directly involved with the facility, CITE would attract other research companies to Chaves County, likely creating a number of indirect jobs. He said CITE is already working with other companies throughout the world for testing, and that many of those operations would come to the area if the city is ultimately chosen. “It’s not only good for us and New Mexico, it’s good for the United States,” he said. “We’ll be thee location in the United States for testing all types of products, and so why wouldn’t we want that here? “Why wouldn’t we want those customers to come to Roswell and spend a month in Roswell, living or working here, and testing their product? To me, it’s too much of a dream idea, an outstanding idea, for us not to consider at this point.” Donnell said EDC plans to submit its proposal by the end of the week, and that he expects a decision on a CITE location before the end of the calendar year.

the cemetery, we’re at Aug. 1 now, to do any good in this growing season. I’m very optimistic and very hopeful that we can start next March. That doesn’t mean we won’t get stuff in place, and test the system and make sure it operates the way it’s supposed to this year.” In addition to the irrigation system, Cor n said there is still a good deal of groundwork and labor on the supply side that needs to be completed. He plans to have the property mowed this week, and anticipates clearing the dead bushes and trees from the property very soon.

ron said. New Mexico, Colorado and Nevada, the three swing states in the West, have been receiving money from the Republican National Committee. Damron estimated that the RNC has pumped $800,000 into New Mexico “for the operations of the six (Victory) offices, the field directors, the other directors that are running in the state.” Yet New Mexico still remains a T ier 2 state, with more focus being placed on Colorado and Nevada at the present time. In New Mexico, the Romney campaign will focus on the economy and redouble its outreach efforts to the Hispanic community. Damron said the Republican values of family, jobs and the economy resonate with many Hispanic voters. Both Romney and Obama have focused on garnering support from the Hispanic community, considered a vital demographic in this election. The Obama campaign contends that Romney’s key policies would be a detriment to the Hispanic community. In a written statement, Mahen Gunaratna, the New Mexico-Arizona communications director for Obama for America, stated, “New Mexico’s Hispanic community stands to lose the most from Mitt Romney’s insistence on tax breaks for millionaires and billionaires, his drastic cuts to education funding for our children, and his opposition to equal pay for equal work for women. Gov. Romney is simply on the wrong side of every issue important to our Hispanic community.” As for the economy, Damron said, “The taxes that we currently have are too much taxes, the Bush

On Monday, Rick Reese, owner of New Deal Shooting Sports, told the court that Roman was a boisterous braggart and he never took him seriously. Reese, 56, his wife, Terri, 49, and their sons, R yin, 20, and Remington, 25, are all on trial. Prosecutors claim the defendants sold 16 firearms to people who then smuggled the guns to cartel members in Mexico in July and


tax cuts need to be reaffir med. The regulations that are put upon us as Americans, the situation with the health care, with ObamaCare ... is extremely important. There are 21 new taxes in that 2,700page legislation.” He indicated that Romney’s leadership in both the private and public sectors render him the better candidate to ease the country’s economic woes. Gunaratna said, “New Mexicans find Mitt Romney’s economic scheme familiar and troubling: more budget-busting tax cuts for the wealthy; fewer rules for Wall Street — the same formula that benefitted a few, but crashed our economy and punished our state’s middle class.” New Mexico, with five electoral votes, is primed for being a battleground state in a projected tight race between Obama and Romney. “There is a potential for complacency ... this is a Republican part of the state, Santa Fe is a democrat part. We all tend to get grouped in areas. If the Republicans are going to be successful, we’re going to need to not be complacent. And that means, ‘oh we know that Mitt Romney, Heather Wilson, Steve Pearce, are going to win this area, do I really need to (vote)?’ And the answer is yes you really do,” said Dennis Kintigh, Team Romney Chaves County coordinator. “I heard a comment the other day that really had me thinking. I think it’s accurate. ‘I don’t think the political process is what’s so divisive. I think the population is divided.’ I think the political environment reflects the deep political, philosophical differences that exist in this country,” Kintigh said.

August of 2010. They are accused of selling 18 more guns to undercover agents and Roman. Roman testified last week against the Reeses.

Defense lawyers have maintained the Reeses followed all legal procedures during the undercover sales and kept detailed records.

August a memorable month for New Mexicans

SANTA FE — Welcome to August. The month has no holidays. Maybe that is because so many people already are on vacation But August has many days to remember, especially for New Mexicans. Some of them could be holidays but we just don’t celebrate them for one reason or another. Every elementary school child knows Christopher Columbus arrived in the New World on Oct. 12, 1492. But he set sail on Aug. 3 of that year. They still are teaching elementary students that Columbus was the guy who figured out the world is round. But we have learned over the years that when he set sail, he had no doubt he wasn’t going to fall off the edge of the earth. Many people already knew the world was round and some even knew others had already explored new lands to the west. The only




question was how far west. It was August 1598 when Juan de Onate and his colonists settled in Northern New Mexico near Espanola. It was Aug. 10, 1680, when the Pueblos, with the help of Apaches, decided they didn’t like Spanish rule. Some 400 colonists and 21 Franciscan missionaries were killed. The rest fled down the Rio Grande to south of El Paso. It is said to be the first and only instance of Native Americans overthrowing their conquerors. It was August 1846 when U.S. troops, under the command of Gen. Stephen Watts Kearny,

Roswell Daily Record

invaded New Mexico. On Aug. 22, Kearny declared all residents to be American citizens. On Aug. 6 and 9, Little Boy and Fat Man were dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, assuring a quick end to the war. The dates are not celebrated in the United States. They are mourned by the Japanese and American peace activists. At the time, it seemed to our leaders like the thing to do. High school graduates were being drafted and quickly sent to the Pacific to prepare for a land invasion expected to take a million lives. Scientists and engineers from Los Alamos were sent to the island of Tinian in the Northern Marianas, near Guam and Saipan, to prepare the bombs and the modified B-29s that would carry them. We knew that American prisoners held in Japan, including 900 members of the New Mexico

National Guard, would be shot as soon as a land invasion commenced. But when the two big ones dropped, prison guards throughout Japan ran for their homes and never returned. Even before the two bombs dropped, Japan had been making efforts toward ending the war. But there were still holdouts in the Japanese high command that either wanted to fight to the end or to bargain for keeping the lands they had taken. The bombs hastened the decision to surrender. Six days after the second bomb was dropped, Japan surrendered. It was high noon, Aug. 15 in Tokyo and 6 p.m. the day before in Washington, D.C. There was great rejoicing nationwide. Next to the photo of the Iwo Jima flag raising, the picture of a sailor sweeping a nurse off her feet on Times Square is probably the most beloved in American history. I was a 7-year-

old in Las Cruces watching the celebrating. But the yearly celebrations did not last. Although the bombs killed no more than our nightly saturation bombings of Japanese cities, the radiation deaths and illnesses that followed insured that nuclear devices have not been used in warfare since. August also is the anniversary of New Mexico native Smokey Bear being adopted as our national forest fire prevention symbol in 1944. Even Smokey had a war connection. All our able-bodied men were fighting elsewhere. And Japan was tying small bombs to gas balloons and launching them into the winds headed for our West Coast forests. Some of them made it. So the American public was alerted to fight forest fires. (Write to Jay Miller at 3 La Tusa, Santa Fe, NM 87505; by fax at 984-0982; or by e-mail at

Women in uniform deserve better

Military justice is an oxymoron when it comes to women in the armed forces. When a woman volunteers to serve in the military, it doesn’t mean that she volunteers to be sexually assaulted by enlisted men or officers. But as the eighth Department of Defense Annual Report on Sexual Assault in the Military reports, all too often that’s what happens. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta said earlier this year that as many as 19,000 service members may have been the victims of sexual assault in 2011. Of that number, only 3,200 victims reported the attacks, and only 191 cases resulted in court-martial convictions. Those numbers are shameful. It appears that the Pentagon is trying to get a handle on the problem through training programs, greater efforts to encourage reporting, improving responses to sexual assaults, a 24/7 hotline for victims, better education for case workers and other initiatives. But those efforts — and the messages they send — were undercut by the inadequate sentence handed down by a military court to Air Force Staff Sgt. Luis Walker. He was found guilty of 28 charges of rape, aggravated sexual contact and multiple counts of aggravated sexual assault. He was sentenced to 20 years in prison. Twenty years sounds like a long sentence. But it amounts to less than a year for each count. Walker was the face of a sex scandal at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio, Texas, where every airman and woman in our country goes for basic training. He was among 12 instructors investigated in connection with sexual misconduct involving at least 31 female trainees. Six of the instructors have been charged with crimes that include rape and sexual assault. Walker was the first to stand trial. U.S. Rep. Jackie Speier, D-Calif., summed up the case this way: “The military jury confirmed what we already knew; Walker is a sexual predator who used his position in the military to rape and sexually assault young recruits at Lackland. But a sentence of 20 years in confinement is inadequate for a man who abused 10 victims. ... The only way to end rape in the military is prosecute, convict, and punish perpetrators to the full extent of military law. ... The widespread sex abuse scandal at Lackland demands a congressional investigation. We need to know how this behavior was permitted at Lackland for so long and by so many.” The excuse — explanation? rationalization? — for raping and assaulting women in the military is pitiful. You’ve heard it before. About one in five recruits at Lackland is female. Ninety percent of the 475 instructors are male. Are we supposed to accept that because women are outnumbered and in the vicinity of men they become prey? Haven’t we learned anything? Protecting women who are protecting their country is the least we owe them. Guest Editorial The St. Louis Post-Dispatch DEAR DOCTOR K: Many exercise classes these days focus on core strength. Why is it important to have strong core muscles? DEAR READER: I had always thought of exercise as involving the muscles of my arms and legs. Then I began hearing about core exercises and realized there was a lot about exercise that I didn’t know. Your core muscles are the sturdy central link connecting your upper and lower body. Bounded largely by the rib cage and hips, your core includes the muscles, bones and joints in your abdomen, back, sides, pelvis, buttocks and hips. No matter where motion

Both sides should be able to express opinions Chick-fil-A president Dan Cathy is in hot water with the LGBT community because he committed the cardinal sin in an age of political correctness: Thou must not speak ill of anything gays, lesbians, bisexuals or transgenders wish to do. In an interview with the Baptist Press and later on a Christian radio program, Cathy, whose father, the philanthropist T ruett Cathy, founded the company, defended marriage between a man and a woman and when asked about the company’s support of traditional marriage said, “Guilty as charged. We are

mundane actions that rely on your core. You take them for granted until they become difficult or painful. On-the-job tasks that involve lifting and standing rely on core muscles. Less obvious tasks -- such as sitting at your desk for hours -engage your core as well. A healthy back. Low back pain, an often debilitating problem, may be prevented by exercises that promote wellbalanced, resilient core muscles. When back pain strikes, core exercises are often an important part of treatment. Sports and other pleasurable activities.

Actions such as bending, lifting, twisting, carrying, hammering and reaching overhead all pass through the core. So do vacuuming, mopping and dusting. Balance and stability. Your core stabilizes your body. A strong core can lessen your risk of falling. Incontinence. Losing control of your bladder generally reflects weakness in your pelvic core muscles.

Menino wants to ban Chick-fil-A in Boston, not for discriminating against customers or employees, but because of its owner’s beliefs, a threat he has since backed away from. Does Boston have “thought police” who might be ordered to investigate whether other business owners already operating in the city hold similar views? I’ll bet there’s someone at Durgin-Park who holds similar views. What about a player for the Boston Red Sox? Better follow them to

VA claim update; a story on how one earns a Silver Star Roswell Daily Record

This week, I’ve got an update on the claim submitted last January, giving a real life experience to VA claims’ backlog disaster and special recognition for some specials “brothers.” What I am now referring to as my monthly VA “newsletter” (Delay, Deny, Hope That You Die) arrived on time last week. An excerpt reads, “We are still processing your application for COMPENSATION. We apologize for the delay. You will be notified upon completion of processing. If you need to contact us, be sure to show the file number and full name of the veteran.)” For those of you following this column, the previous words may look familiar. They are the exact same words used in the four previous letters. It seems to me that if the Albuquerque VA claims processors would have put the same amount of time in claim’s processing that is being spent on sending out “we are sorry” (pun intended) notices, the claim could have been decid-

ed (considering the more than 30 pages of support documentation sent). We’re at six months and counting! As a brief addendum to the claim, you may enjoy this additional tidbit. Last week, a fellow vet received an appointment notice from the Albuquerque VA pulmonary/respiratory for screening tests. First of all, the veteran has no idea why he’s being screened for something he has no problems with (and is not aware his primary physician ordered). Second, he is a 100 percent combat disabled (homebound, aka bound to his home) being told he has to drive almost seven hours round trip. The VA (themselves) declared/rated him “homebound.” This is another perfect example of Albuquerque VA not contracting (which they can, but refuse to do) with local medical providers to eliminate a needless 7 hour trip to Albuquerque from Roswell. That needs to change! More later.


Now for some accolades to current members of my old unit, the 75th Rangers. The following was taken from this month’s issue of my “Purple Heart” magazine. “Twelve Soldiers from 1st battalion, 75th Ranger Regiment, were awarded the Silver Star during a ceremony at Hunter Army Air Field, Ga. The soldiers were honored—two of them posthumously—with the nation’s third-highest award for valor.” How do you earn such a medal? Here’s an example of one of their stories. Staff Sgt. Trevor D. Tow was a squad leader when he and his

see if any of them go to church. Maybe Mayor Menino would like to force business owners in the city to testify before an official panel of grand inquisitors and then deny operating licenses to anyone who believes traditional marriage should be the norm? In Chicago, Mayor Rahm Emanuel has said, “Chick-fil-A’s values are not Chicago values.” Are Chicago values represented by the antiSemitic firebrand Louis Farrakhan with whom Emanuel is going to partner in hopes of reducing the number of homicides in his city? Are Farrakhan’s antiSemitic and anti-gay sentiments somehow more palatable, more of value, than Dan Cathy’s support of marriage and family? The Weekly Standard found a video posted on the Nation of Islam’s website of a Farrakhan speech two months ago in which he blasted President Obama for endorsing same-sex marriage. Farrakhan said Obama is “the first president that sanctioned what the scriptures forbid.” He added, “... sin is sin according to the standard of God” and “the Bible forbids it.” That goes a lot further than Dan Cathy.

up your pelvic muscles and cure incontinence. Good posture. Weak core muscles contribute to slouching. Good posture lessens wear and tear on the spine and allows you to breathe deeply. Weak, tight or unbalanced core muscles can undermine you in any of these realms. That’s why it’s important to build a strong core.

made to GLAAD, the media-monitoring group that promotes the image of LGBT people. I knew Jim Henson when we both worked at the NBCTV station in Washington in the mid-1960s. While we never discussed politics, I don’t think at the time, at least, he would have wanted his characters, which appeal to everyone, involved in a cultural and political battle. Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee and former Sen. Rick Santorum, both also former presidential candidates, have called for a show of support for Cathy. They want people to eat at Chick-fil-A restaurants today. This is more than an economic battle. It is a First Amendment issue. Freedom of speech is guaranteed by the Constitution. Dan Cathy has a right to his opinion, so does Farrakhan, so do we all. The real “war” in this country is not only against the supposed civil right of nontraditional marriage. It is a war against conservative Christians and a denial of the same rights the LGBT community claims for itself. Free speech is an American value. We shouldn’t settle for anything less.

soldiers from 2nd Platoon, C Company, came under intense enemy fire during an operation in Afghanistan. The soldiers had cleared two compounds in a village controlled by the enemy and were moving to clear a third. An enemy fighter on a rooftop dropped two grenades and fired 20 to 30 rounds from an AK47 down onto the soldiers. Tow immediately returned fire and directed his soldiers to do the same. Sp4. Christopher Wright was hit by multiple AK47 rounds. Seeing his soldier wounded and unable to defend himself, Tow moved alone farther out into the open to engage the enemy. When the enemy fighter moved back and sought cover, Tow reloaded his M4 and gave directions to his soldiers, while staying in the open to provide security. As his men moved Wright to cover, another enemy fighter appeared on the roof and began firing on the soldiers. Tow, seeing the threat to his men, distracted

the enemy and drew attention to himself. Tow stood his ground, and with the enemy only 10 feet away, he exchanged fire with the enemy. With the enemy focused on Tow, the rest of the squad pulled Wright to safety. A second enemy fighter appeared and began firing on Tow. With rounds from both enemy weapons flying by his head and hitting the ground around him, Tow continued to fight in the open by himself. Another Ranger then moved in to fight alongside Tow, killing one enemy fighter. The two Rangers then focused their fire on the second, killing him. As the rest of the squad provided aid to Wright, Tow saw a third enemy fighter moving toward them. That enemy fighter threw three grenades that landed as close as 10 feet away from Tow. The two exchanged fire until Tow managed to kill the enemy. Unfortunately, Wright did not survive. Sua sponte my brothers! God bless.

Western wildfire recovery likely to take years

aster isn’t over when the wildfire is snuffed out and the firefighters go home. Erosion from seared hillsides buries roads in mud and pollutes rivers that supply tap water. The point was driven home earlier this week when a mudslide following heavy rain in Colorado’s Waldo Canyon burn area temporarily closed U.S. 24 near Manitou Springs. Electricity, water and gas lines have to be repaired and recharged. Debris from burned-out homes has to be hauled away and new houses must be built. Even if the work starts while the fire is still burning, experts say recovery can take years and untold millions of dollars simply to make conditions livable again.

Lisa Maser, whose norther n Colorado home survived a blaze that destroyed 259 homes and charred more than 136 square miles, now thinks of her life in two periods: before and after the High Park Fire. “It’s very eerie,” Maser said of the charred hillsides in her rural neighborhood west of Fort Collins, where the blaze left a layer of fine, sandy black ash, and where flood waters could strand them in the event of a heavy rainstor m. “It’s amazing that it got so close.” In Colorado alone, insurers estimate that wildfires have caused some $450 million in damage to personal property, and that number is expected to grow. Nationally, the U.S. Forest Service is on track for another possible record with nearly $28 million spent so far on bur nedarea recovery work. The agency spent a record $48 million last year. Harris Sher man, the USDA undersecretary who oversees the agency and the Natural Resources Conservation Service, said the federal government tries to get into burned areas as quickly as possible to predict what some of the fallout might be. “There are not only immediate effects. There are long-term implications to this,” Sherman said. “We all need to be aware of the fact that the landscape doesn’t restore overnight. It

can take years, if not decades.” The number of fires and total acreage burned in the West this summer is roughly within range of the past decade’s average. But the fires are bigger, they’re burning with greater severity, and they are burning areas where the potential impacts are greater. The blazes have charred forests and private land near suburban communities, rather than remote wilder ness, raising the price tag for a recovery that challenges everyone from homeowners and anglers to forest managers and water plant operators. In addition to Colorado and New Mexico, burnedarea response specialists are working in Arizona, Nevada, Utah and Wyoming to finalize contracts for seeding and mulching, stabilize roads and trails, prep culverts for higher flows of water and put up warning signs. Charred hillsides are vulnerable to erosion during downpours because they have less vegetation to soak up rain, increasing the likelihood of flooding. Earlier this month, a wall of water rushed down New Mexico’s Santa Clara Canyon, washing away months of restoration work done by Santa Clara Pueblo and government contractors. The tribal community had volunteers come from around the state to help fill thousands of sandbags in the wake of last year’s mas-

financial audit. The Legislative Council agreed Tuesday to hire a firm through competitive bids to evaluate policies and procedures at the New Mexico Finance Authority.

The review also will look at how the authority is governed, and a report will be made to the Legislature on whether changes should be made in state law. The authority is gov-

erned by a board of directors, a majority of them appointed by the governor. Authority officials have blamed a former controller for falsifying financial statements to indicate

DENVER (AP) — A oncethriving Colorado neighborhood of homes and healthy trees has been reduced to a barren expanse of ash and debris. Across the state, a river prized for its trout, rapids and pristine water instead flows as an oily, black brew every time rain falls on nearby slopes charred by wildfire. In New Mexico, the Santa Clara Pueblo is seeking volunteers to fill sandbags for fear the American Indian village of 3,100 will be washed away by runof f from mountainsides left denuded by a blaze last year. Wildfires across the West are burning homes, businesses, bridges and other infrastructure necessary for everyday life — and the dis-

sive Las Conchas Fire, and they’re in need of the same help this year. Pueblo Gov. Walter Dasheno has said he fears the next rainstorm could result in a wall of water bearing down on his village. “In less than 10 days, the rains have wiped out even more trees, brought down more boulders and destroyed some out structures,” he said. National forests and grasslands provide about 20 percent of the nation’s water supply, according to the Forest Service, and the cost of treating drinking water increases by about 20 percent for every loss of 10 percent of forest land in a watershed. Following wildfires in 1996 and 2002, the water utility in Denver spent more than $26 million on restoration, maintenance and dredging, planting more than a quarter of a million trees, building sediment control structures and installing bigger drainage pipes. The work reinforced the utility’s belief in the importance of forest management, Denver Water media coordinator Travis Thompson said. In 2010, Denver Water entered into a partnership with the Forest Service, called “From Forests to Faucets,” to improve forest and watershed conditions. Under the partnership, Denver Water will match the federal government’s $16.5 million investment

Roswell Daily Record

toward restoration projects in priority watersheds critical to Denver’s water supply. An estimated 30,000 cubic yards of debris are expected to be hauled out of one neighborhood near Colorado Springs, where the Waldo Canyon Fire destroyed more than 340 homes and killed a husband and wife. But the rebuilding process has already begun: Earlier this week, city officials issued the first permit for a homeowner to rebuild, just 14 days after the fire was declared contained. Joseph Boyd, whose twostory, four-bedroom home at the end of a cul-de-sac burned on June 26, said he looked at other homes but found nothing that appealed to him and his wife. They’ve since picked out a new, more energyefficient plan and aim to restore the landscape. At least eight of the 14 houses on his street intend to return and rebuild, he said. “I have one neighbor that will not come back. It was pretty traumatizing for them,” he said. “I don’t blame them, but it’s a memory that will fade. You have to move forward, either direction you choose.”

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) #### Focus on meetings and discussions in order to get a project moving. You have a way of saying the right thing. Your words are soothing, which helps someone open up more. As a result, you’ll gain a lot of insight. Tonight: Where the gang is. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) ### You want to move in a certain direction, but because of the people around you, you might decide not to. You’ll weigh the pros and cons of mixing your personal life with your outside or professional life. Tonight: Treat yourself to a new item you have been eyeing. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) ##### Your ability to detach and take a broader view of a situation proves to be most helpful. Today’s Full Moon might be overwhelming to many people, but you can handle all the different elements and changes. You tend to make the right moves at the right time. Tonight: Where there is music. CANCER (June 21-July 22) #### Deal with a partner directly. You could be overwhelmed by everything you are hearing. News or information that comes forward could shake up plans. Integrate what you are hearing. You could be unusually moody. Tonight: Enjoy a special friendship. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) #### Others want what they want, and there appears to be no give-and-take.

Aren’t you the same way sometimes? You might want to do something differently or move in a new direction. Let go of a need to control things, and go off on an adventure. Tonight: Take a tip from a free spirit. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) ### Be the efficient person you are — the one whom others depend on. You could discover that you cannot be everywhere at once and therefore must make some choices. Talk to a respected or older friend, and you’ll get great advice. Tonight: Know when to call it a night. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) ##### Your ability to see past the obvious and work with others emerges. A new friendship could occupy your thoughts. Try to meet your obligations before you decide you are free. Good news heads in, possibly from a distance. Tonight: Out on the town. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) #### A boss, parent or higher-up has expectations that you know you must make an effort to meet. A loved one helps you by pitching in or simply by offering his or her suggestion. Don’t be chatty when around an authority figure. Tonight: A late dinner. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) #### In general, you like the excitement of a Full Moon; however, an issue or surprise could occur with a loved one, child or creative endeavor. You’ll be pulled into this scenario but will want to deal with some other matter instead. Tonight: Swing with change — do not fight it. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

CHICAGO (AP) — The Texas Rangers won the Ryan Dempster sweepstakes. Now, they’ll try to capture the ultimate prize. The AL West leaders fortified their rotation for the stretch run, acquiring the Cubs ace before Tuesday’s trade deadline for two minor leaguers. In exchange, they sent infielder Christian Villanueva and pitcher Kyle Hendricks to Chicago. Dempster, who had power to block deals, refused to approve a trade to Atlanta last week. The Dodgers and Yankees also tried to land the 35-year-old righty. “It’s a great opportunity over there,” said Dempster, who has spent all of his nearly 15 seasons in the National League. “It’s not going to be easy. There are a lot of teams out there that are really good. I think they have as good a chance as anybody.” Dempster was 5-5 with a 2.25 ERA in 16 games for the Cubs and can become a free agent after the season.



Golden girls: USA wins Section

Roswell Daily Record


LONDON (AP) — One by one, the Americans thundered down the runway, soared high above the vault and slammed into the mat. Boom! Boom! Boom! When the fireworks were over, so was everybody else’s chance for the gold medal. The Americans lived up to their considerable hype and then some Tuesday night, routing silver medalist Russia and everybody else on their way to their first Olympic title in women’s gymnastics since 1996. Their score of 183.596 was a whopping five points better than Russia’s, and set off a debate over whether this is the best U.S. team of all time. Romania won the bronze. “Others might disagree. The ’96 team might disagree. But this is the best team,”

LEFT: The U.S. women’s gymnastics team reacts as the final results are displayed in the arena, Tuesday.

U.S. coach John Geddert said. The Americans didn’t botch a single routine, and all but three of their 12 scores were 15.0 or higher. The Russians, on the other hand, had just one score above 15 in their last two events as they unraveled down the stretch. They sat on the sidelines sniffling and

watching glumly as the Americans turned their final event, floor exercise, into a coronation. When the final standings flashed, chants of “U-S-A! US-A!” rocked the arena, and the U.S. women, who backed up to get a better view of the scoreboard, held

Medal mayhem: Phelps wins 19th

LONDON (AP) — Michael Phelps lingered on the blocks, not wanting to make another shocking blunder. The 19th medal was his. All he had to do was avoid a DQ, then set off on what amounted to four victory laps. Down and back, then down and back again, the roars getting louder with each stroke. When Phelps touched the wall, he finally had gold at his final Olympics. And a record for the ages. Phelps swam into history with a lot of help from his friends, taking down the last major record that wasn’t his alone. He took the anchor leg for the United States in a gold medal-winning performance of the 4x200meter freestyle relay Tuesday night, earning the 19th Olympic medal of his bril-

liant career, and the 15th gold. A more appropriate color. “I’ve put my mind to doing something that nobody had ever done before,” Phelps said. “This has been an amazing ride.” About an hour earlier, Phelps took one of his most frustrating defeats at the pool, blowing it at the finish and settling for silver in his signature event, the 200 butterfly. That tied the record for career medals held by Soviet gymnast Larisa Latynina, but it was hardly a triumphant moment. Phelps slung away his cap in disgust and struggled to force a smile at the medal ceremony. But any disappointment from that race was gone by

U.S. swimmer Michael Phelps holds up his gold medal from the 4x200-meter freestyle relay, Tuesday. The gold was Phelps’ 19th overall medal at the Olympics, setting a record previously held by Soviet gymnast Larisa Latynina.

LONDON (AP) — Halftime ended. Showtime began. The U.S. men’s Olympic basketball team needed a while but eventually put on the show fans came to see, beating Tunisia 110-63 on Tuesday night. Finally pulling away when coach Mike Krzyzewski started the reserves to open the second half, the Americans had six players in double figures and improved to 2-0 in the tournament. Krzyzewski insists he planned to start the second unit even before a lackluster first half, and said there was nothing bad about the Americans’ performance. “It’s not going to a perfect thing, you know?” he said. “But overall tonight was good. I mean, come on, it was 110-63.” True, it was a 47-point blowout, but the lead was just 13 at the half and he sure didn’t look pleased as he walked quickly to the locker room. But if he didn’t see anything wrong, the players sure did — though they weren’t concerned. See TEAM USA, Page B6

U.S. duo downs Spain

LONDON (AP) — To be honest, Todd Rogers said, he thought his hit that helped put the Americans one point away from victory was illegal, too. Rogers took a spike off the chest and then popped it up into the air for teammate Phil Dalhausser, who passed it back for Rogers to clear out. Whether that should count as three hits or four — one too many — depends on whom you ask, but in the referee’s opinion it was a legal hit that gave the Americans a 14-12 lead. “I told him (the referee) I thought it was a double-hit,” Rogers said after holding on to win 19-21, 21-16, 15-13 and remain unbeaten in the preliminary round of the Olympic beach volleyball tournament. “He said it was all See DUO, Page B2

up their index fingers for the cameras — in case anyone had a doubt. “The feeling was incredible,” world champion Jordyn Wieber said. “To have this gold medal around your neck, it’s really an indescribable feeling.” The Americans had come into the last two Olympics as world champions, only to leave without the gold. But national team coordinator Martha Karolyi recognized six months ago that this was a special group, stronger than previous U.S. teams. It’s not just the titles these Americans have won, though there are plenty: last

one motion. ... It’s a judgment call.” Beach volleyball teams have three hits to get the ball back over the net, but contact made while attempting a block doesn’t count. The referee told Rogers that when the ball bounced off his chest and wrist before Rogers could react it only counted as one hit. But Spain’s Pablo Herrera vociferously disagreed, arguing with referee Marc Berard of France until he was given a yellow card, and then continuing to argue. (A second yellow card would have cost them a point —

It’s their fierce competitiveness, and the unshakable faith they have in themselves. Rather than flinching under the weight of the heavy expectations, it made them stronger. When they noticed the Russians and Romanians peeking in on their training sessions, they cranked up the oomph in their routines, the better to intimidate.

“I told them just believe in yourself,” Maroney said. “Live up to that Olympic moment, because you’re never, ever going to forget it.” Unforgettable, like their performance. The Americans opened on vault, their strongest event, unleashing a barrage that let the Russians know in no uncertain terms that they — and everyone else — would be playing for silver. “They’re just so far ahead of anyone else,” Britain’s Rebecca Tunney said. All of the Americans do the high-difficulty, highscoring Amanar — a roundoff onto the takeoff board, back handspring onto the table and 2.5 twisting somersaults before landing. It’s In the final match, the U.S. women’s team of April Ross and Jennifer Kessy needed three sets to beat the Netherlands 21-15, 21-12, 15-8. The American men were in trouble the entire first set, and Spain clinched it 21-19 when Rogers missed a serve and then attempted two crosscourt shots but put them into the net instead. The U.S. pair took an eight-point lead in the second and held on to win 21-16, then opened a 5-1 lead in the third. The victory guarantees that the Americans will not be eliminated in pool play.

Before the race, they all huddled together, fully aware of their role in history. “I thanked those guys for helping me get to this moment,” Phelps said. “I told those guys I wanted a big lead. I was like, ‘You better give me a big lead going into the last lap,’ and they gave it to me. I just wanted to hold on. I thanked them for being able to allow me to have this moment.” Berens handed of f a lead of nearly 4 seconds to Phelps, who was extra with the cautious exchange, knowing the only way he could ruin this one was to get disqualified.

Zara Phillips gave the royal family plenty to cheer about, helping team Britain to a second-place equestrian finish behind Germany. Princes William and Harry and William’s wife, Kate, were in the stands to watch their cousin as she competed in the show jumping final portion of Olympic eventing. Phillips’ mother, Princess Anne, watched as well — then presented her daughter and the rest of the winners with their medals at the ceremony before horses and riders took a thunderous group victory lap around the Greenwich Park stadium.


Andy Roddick spent less than an hour on the court during an emphatic loss to Novak Djokovic. Jo-Wilfried Tsonga needed a much longer run to advance against Milos Raonic.

The second-ranked Djokovic had 34 winners on Centre Court at the All England Club. Roddick had 12. Tsonga of France moved on by winning the longest set in Olympic history. He beat Raonic of Canada 6-3, 3-6, 25-23. The final set lasted three hours and 257 points. Andy Murray, Marcos Baghdatis and Kei Nishikori also won on the men’s side.

France’s Yannick Agnel swam a faster final leg than Phelps, but it wasn’t nearly good enough, his country taking silver in 7:02.77. China was far back in third at 7:06.30. Phelps might have backed into the record a bit by failing to win any of his first three events at these games, but there’s no denying his legacy as one of the greatest Olympians ever — if not THE greatest. “The legacy he has left behind for swimming is fantastic,” said South African Chad le Clos, the guy who beat him in the butterfly. “Even in Africa, everyone knows Michael Phelps.” eral men’s disciplines when finals begin Wednesday.


Matt Anderson added 15 points in the 25-23, 25-16, 25-20 win for the defending Olympic champions. The Germans were led by Georg Grozer with 12. Serbia, Bulgaria and Italy each won in four sets.

Ryan Bailey and Peter Varellas scored three goals apiece and the United States recovered from a slow start to beat Romania 10-8 in the men’s tournament. The U.S., which took silver four years ago in Beijing, and gold medal-favorite Serbia are tied for the Group B lead with four points apiece after two matches. Serbia beat host Britain 21-7. Montenegro, Croatia and Australia also won. Greece and Italy played to a 7-7 tie.

Favorites Ding Ning and Li Xiaoxia each won to set up an all-Chinese final in women’s table tennis. Defending world champion Ding, who enters Wednesday’s final as the one to beat, defeated Feng Tianwei of Singapore 4-2. Li will be a decided underdog after defeating Kasumi Ishikawa of Japan 4-1. In two late men’s matches, Chuang Chih-yuan of Taiwan and Dimitrij Ovtcharov of Germany reached the semifinals.

Shannon Taylor scored late in the first half and the U.S. upset Argentina 1-0 in women’s field hockey. The Americans controlled long stretches of play against the No. 2-ranked team in the world, got some key saves from Amy Swensen and kept Argentine star Luciana Aymar largely silent throughout. The U.S. got into the Olympics by stunning Argentina 4-2 in last year’s final at the Pan American Games. Netherlands, New Zealand, Britain and Australia also won. China and Belgium played to a scoreless tie.

Vincent Hancock is putting together quite the Olympic resume. The 23-year-old U.S. Army sergeant is a two-time champion in men’s skeet shooting after he successfully defended his crown with a score of 148 in London. Hancock’s win gave the U.S. a skeet sweep after Kimberly Rhode won the women’s competition earlier this week. Anders Golding of Denmark grabbed the silver, and Qatar’s Nasser Al-Attiya won a shoot-off over Russia’s Valery Shomin for the bronze at the Royal Artillery Barracks.


Carlos Suarez was upset with the scoring after he dropped a 16-6 decision to Turkey’s Ferhat Pehlivan. Five ringside judges decided the awkward Pehlivan — who probably slipped and fell to the canvas more than a dozen times during the bout — landed more scoring punches. Suarez, who is from Lima, Ohio, but is fighting for his mother’s homeland of Trinidad and Tobago, called it “a horrible decision.” Light flyweight Mark Barriga easily handled Italy’s Manuel Cappai in the opening bout for the only Filipino boxer in London, earning a 17-7 victory.


Ben Ainslie is still chasing Denmark’s Jonas Hoegh-Christensen in the Finn class. Hoegh-Christensen finished first and second in a pair of races for a 10-point lead over Ainslie after six races. Britain’s Ainslie had finishes of 4-3 as the 24-boat fleet sailed in winds that reached 17 knots. Ainslie is trying to win his fourth straight gold medal and fifth games medal overall. If he wins gold, he’ll supplant HoeghChristensen’s countryman, Paul Elvstrom, as the greatest sailor in Olympic history. Ireland’s Annalise Murphy continued her surreal run in the Laser Radial, winning her fourth straight race.


Chen Ruolin and Wang Hao led China to its third diving gold in London, this one off the big tower in women’s 10-meter synchronized diving. China won going away with 368.40 points, and the country is nearly halfway to its goal of sweeping the eight diving events. Mexico’s Paola Espinosa and 15-yearold Alejandra Orozco took the silver, and Meaghan Benfeito and Roseline Filion won the bronze for Canada.


Alan Campbell of Britain qualified fastest for the semifinals of the men’s single sculls, providing another boost for the host nation at the Olympic regatta. Campbell crossed in 6 minutes, 52.10 seconds in the first quarterfinal to beat the times of fellow winners Mahe Drysdale of New Zealand, Lassi Karonen of Sweden and Ondrej Synek, the pre-regatta favorite from the Czech Republic.

Small farmers struggle as drought kills vegetables Roswell Daily Record

AP Photo A farm hand stands by the harvested potato crop at King’s Hill Farm at Mineral Point, Wis. on Monday. The potato yield is about one-fifth of the expected yield, but is the farm’s only salvageable crop after the other crops perished in the drought gripping large sections of the Midwest.

WEST ALLIS, Wis. (AP) — Chris Covelli planted 1,000 zucchini seeds on his farm in southern Wisconsin this spring. Only a quarter sprouted in the parched soil. A few weeks later, he planted 1,000 more seeds and doubled his irrigation. This time, nothing came up. Covelli also lost his broccoli and green beans to the drought that now covers two-thirds of the nation. Under pressure to fill the boxes he delivers weekly to families who buy annual subscriptions of produce, he recently threw in purslane,

Small fruit and vegetable farmers throughout the Midwest are struggling with unusual heat and a oncein-decades drought. Some have lost crops, while others are paying more to irrigate. Most aren’t growing enough to sell profitably to wholesalers, and sales at farmers markets are down. Those with community supported agriculture programs, or CSAs, are looking for ways to keep members happy, or

back several measures the previous, conservative government passed to shake up a hidebound labor market. It eliminates a tax break on overtime pay, for example. The government has promised the 2013 budget will include spending cuts, but economists worry the new leaders don’t understand how urgently France needs to reduce costs. Ballooning debt has forced other European countries to seek bailouts.

said 5,000 to 6,000 customers generally show up during peak season in midJuly, but attendance seemed to be about half that this year. He blamed a combination of customer skepticism and hot weather that kept many people in the cooler indoors. Farmers markets in other Midwestern states also reported fewer sales. In Plainfield, an Indiana town of about 27,000 residents, attendance at the local farmers market is down an estimated 20 to 30 percent, said Brad DuBois, the executive director of the Plainfield Chamber of Commerce Farmers Market. Bryan Robbins, who runs the Greensburg Decatur County farmers market in Indiana, said it experienced a similar drop in attendance in recent weeks, so he started a new program for elderly customers who may be leery of the heat. Seniors can now pull up to a designated lane in the parking lot and hand over their shopping lists. Robbins or someone else will then fetch the products, allowing the customers to remain in their air-conditioned cars. “That’s one advantage of being a small market in a small community,” said Robbins, whose market typically draws 700 to 800 people. “Not everyone else can do that.”

Xcel Energy warns of latest customer scam

AMARILLO, Texas – Xcel Energy has received numerous reports about a new scam targeting customers in the Texas-New Mexico area. Some customers have been contacted by callers claiming to represent Xcel Energy, indicating the customers’ electric service is soon to be disconnected. The caller then tells customers to make their utility payments by purchasing a Green Dot pre-pay VISA card at a local drug or convenience store. When customers purchase the card and call the phone number provided by the scammer, they are then directed to another phone

The Illinois family who bought the sponsorships will be able to pick from the field, be treated to a home-cooked meal on the land and have a corporate logo or family portrait posted among the plants. “We’re not out of the woods yet, but we are optimistic,” Borchardt said. “All we’re thinking about now is getting through this year and staying in business.” Unlike farmers who grow corn, soybeans and other crops sold as commodities, vegetable farmers don’t have insurance to cover them in case of drought or flooding. But even those who have vegetables to sell say it has been a bad year. Anna Ertl, whose family runs a farm in Raymond, Wis., near the Illinois border, shook her head as she watched a trickle of customers meander through a farmers market in the Milwaukee suburb of West Allis. In front of her was a table with pickles, sweet onions and several dozen zucchinis. “You hear so much bad stuff in the media (about harvests), but people need to come down here and see what we have,” Ertl said. “This is our livelihood. This is how we survive.” Dan Koralewski, who oversees operations at the West Allis Farmers Market,

Covelli said he and his crew have spent every day in the field, often in 100degree heat, in an effort to deliver the vegetables promised to families who pay $14 to $45 per week. So far, he said, they’ve delivered most of what they promised, although they’ve had to get creative with the addition of drought-hardy items like purslane. “There’s no secret,” said Covelli, who owns Tomato Mountain Farms in Brooklyn, Wis. “You just do what you have to do.

DEAR READY: When a man gives money to a hooker, it’s usually for a reason. The reason isn’t charity; it’s for services he wants rendered. (And they don’t take money in arrears.) No one can decide for you whether or not to stay in the marriage, but before making any decisions, make it your first priority to contact your doctor and be checked for STDs. Who knows what your husband might have picked up while “flirting.” If you do decide to remain in the marriage, you’d be wise to schedule regular appointments for STD checkups. Your husband has shown himself to be not only a philanderer but also a liar. #####


DEAR ABBY: I found out my husband has been corresponding with prostitutes he picked up when we went on vacation. He emailed them twice, but the second one hurt me the most. He sent her money. I confronted him and was ready to end the marriage, but we have a son. He denied having sexual contact with the women and said he was just flirting, so I forgave him. But I told him I won’t tolerate it a third time. He agreed to have marriage counseling and do his part to convince me he will change. Is it worth it to try again for the sake of our son? I don’t trust him

DEAR ABBY: I have been meaning to write to you for a long time. Now that we have gone through another year of Mother’s Day and Father’s Day, would you PLEASE acknowledge



those of us who did NOT have a parent who deserved to be honored? SOME PEOPLE SHOULD NOT BE ALLOWED TO BE PARENTS! I dread these commercialized days every year. Our planet does not lack for population. We don’t need more people. There are horror stories every day in the media about child abuse, yet you honor these people without qualification. For those who have parents who deserve to be honored, I’m happy for you. But the celebration is only salt in the wounds of those of us who wish we’d never been born. ONE OF THEM IN LONGMONT, COLO.

DEAR ONE OF THEM: I agree that the commercialization of certain holidays can be painful for those who cannot join in the celebration. This would include children and adults who were abused or neglected by their parents, as well as those who no longer have living parents. I doubt many people remain childless for the public good.

DEAR ABBY: Can you give any advice for a male in his 50s who is still a virgin, who is afraid of being intimate and hasn’t even kissed a girl since high school? Is it OK to live and enjoy life this way, or is sex something that every human should experience? CURIOUS IN FLORIDA DEAR CURIOUS: If someone is happy and enjoying life having never had sexual relations, then it’s OK. However, if you are still a virgin because of fear of intimacy, this is something to discuss with a psychologist to help you understand what caused your fear and inability to trust, because you could be getting more out of life than you have settled for.

Dear Heloise: Why not encourage the next generation of cooks by stating in recipes the kind of onion and measurable quantity? There are so many sizes and varieties of onions: green, white, yellow, etc., and the right amount and taste can make or break a recipe. “Chop one onion” doesn’t cut it. If ingredients are too vague on a new recipe, only experienced cooks can figure it out. Joan P., via email

You do have a valid point. Many times, the size or kind of onion may not make a difference (if it’s a pot of chili or soup, for example), but with some recipes, it might. Thanks for the input. Heloise

All About Animation

art by Michael Bedsole, courtesy SCAD

Have you ever noticed how art can be used to tell a story in cartoons and video games? Telling a story without live actors is called animation (an-uh-MAYshun). Quickly showing a series of images makes it seem as if the images are moving. Today, animators use a mixture of skills and tools. One movie or TV show might include animation from hand drawings, models, computer programs and live action. The Mini Page talked with an animator and teacher at the Savannah College of Art and Design in Savannah, Ga., to learn more about this art form.

Most of the cartoons you see on TV or the Web are 2-D. This is an image from a 2-D cartoon by a student at the Savannah College of Art and Design.

art courtesy SCAD Animation and Visual Effects Group Project “Drag ‘n’ Fly�

Bringing Art to Life This image is from a Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD) 3-D project, “Drag ‘n’ Fly.� Compare this to the 2-D art in the first column below. What strikes you about the differences between the 2-D and the 3-D art?

Starting with 2-D

Adding a dimension

Images that are drawn by hand on paper or a computer are 2-D, or twodimensional. A 2-D picture has two dimensions — length and width. It appears flat. The earliest animation was all 2-D. Before movies were invented, people could speed through special books called flip books. If they turned the pages fast enough, it looked as if the figures on the pages were moving. With the invention of movies, animation took off. Until the end of the 20th century, most animated movies were made by a team of artists drawing thousands of individual images. Disney’s “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs,� made in 1937, was the first fulllength, color animated cartoon feature.

A 3-D, or three-dimensional, image has length, width and depth. Artists working in 3-D may work with physical models, such as sculptures or dolls, or with computer models. The finished product is created on a computer. The term “3-D� might also mean the movie is meant to be viewed with special glasses that make the images seem to pop out of the screen. “Hugo� is an example of this type of 3-D work.

After each image was drawn for a 20th-century animated movie, it was copied onto a special transparent sheet of plastic called a cel (sell). That image was then colored and placed over a background image. (That way, the artist didn’t have to redraw the background for each image.) Using motion picture film, a photo was taken of each cel.


Supersport: Ashton Eaton Birthdate: 1-21-88 Hometown: Bend, Ore.

At the Olympic decathlon site in London, all eyes will be on American Ashton Eaton. In that grinding two-day, 10-event test of speed, stamina and strength, scheduled for Aug. 8 and 9, he’s favored to win the gold medal after setting a world record at the U.S. Olympic trials in June. Eaton, who also holds the world record in the seven-event heptathlon, is expected to keep his competitive edge. The Oregon native has long possessed a champion’s drive and determination. At the University of Oregon, Eaton won two national decathlon titles and earned a degree in psychology. He played football, wrestled and ran track in high school. Some athletes might run faster, or jump higher, or throw longer. But in the all-around decathlon event, Eaton is the leader of the elite athletes headed to London.

In a feature movie, there might be as many as 150 animators. In the Disney movie “Brave,� for example, there were 43 main animators. Sixteen more animators worked on crowds and additional animation; 19 worked on additional animation; and seven others worked on the credits. Other teams of animators worked on special projects such as shading.

Tricks of the trade

In early animated films, a group of animators would all work on one character. For example, 10 artists might animate all of Snow White’s actions, while five other artists might animate a lesser character, such as Grumpy. Other artists were assigned to only one detail. For example, one artist might work only on Snow White’s blush. Another artist might work only on the queen’s hands.

A group project

Animators in many fields

Today at major studios, an experienced animator is usually assigned to focus on one character. Animators beginning their careers might work only on the little bits that move on the characters, which are nicknamed “toes and tails.� In smaller studios, especially those working on projects for TV or the Web, one animator might do everything.

Video game artists animate thousands of tiny actions. Because the player decides what will happen, the animator has to create separate animations for each possible move. In motion graphics, artists may design animations for presentations or commercials. They might work on the titles to movies, wording in ads, designs on cellphones or displays in offices or stores. Motion graphics grab the viewer’s attention, as in this SCAD student’s art.

Drawing With Light

All the following jokes have something in common. Can you guess the common theme or category?

Animators spend a lot of time studying how things move. Major studios usually have a training department to teach animators how real creatures and people move. For example, in “Brother Bear,� Disney brought in actual bears for animators to watch. For “Mulan,� they brought in a tai chi master to teach animators how to perform that martial art. In “Lilo and Stitch,� they took the animators to watch surfers. Experts say VSFX artists are constantly looking at slow-motion videos of action, such as things exploding or water dripping, in order to see how things move. They study painting and sculpture to see how other types of artists have captured action.

In the movie “The Avengers,� most of the Hulk’s fighting and transformations are created with animation.

Visual effects Animators create effects that live actors can’t. Visual effects are known as VSFX. VSFX animators may create everything, other than the actors, that moves in films, such as explosions, trees falling over or magic pouring from a wand. VSFX helps tell the story.

Studying life

In stop motion, or stop frame, animation, the artist shoots a picture of an object, then moves the object, then shoots another picture. This process takes a lot of care. If anyone bumps the set, the artist has to start all over again. The advantage is that it is a process anyone can do. If you have a camera on your smartphone and a couple of paper clips or some Legos, for example, you can make a stop motion film. In movies, animators usually film 24 images per second. Video games have 60 frames per second. But with stop motion, you can usually get away with 12 images per second and still make the animation look good.

Advice to kids

Savannah College of Art and Design students work with Legos to make short stop motion animated films. The Mini Page thanks Tina O’Hailey, dean, School of Digital Media, Savannah College of Art and Design, for help with this issue.

Tina O’Hailey from the Savannah College of Art and Design said: “The best thing you can do is get a pencil and paper and draw what you see.� The most important thing is to learn how to tell a story. Many people think if they have the right software, they can be animators. But, she said, “If you don’t know how to capture the emotions of the audience, you’re just button-pushing.�

Pixar Animation Studio film crew members take archery lessons to help them learn how to draw characters shooting a bow and arrow for the movie “Brave.�

Those guys did great job for us.” Anthony and Love scored 16 points apiece for the Americans, who gave the fans the dunk show they expected once the game was in hand. Durant had 13 and rookie Anthony Davis dunked his way to 12. But they had to work hard to make this one look easy. The game against the Olympic newcomers wasn’t expected to be close for more than a few minutes.
