The Roswell City Council tackled a full agenda consisting of two transfers of ownership of liquor licenses, four Lodger’s Tax funding requests and five planning and zoning cases at its regular business meeting Thursday. A public hearing was held in reference to both transfers of ownership of liquor licenses. The council approved both transfers, one for All American Meat Inc., and the other for Stingray LLC, despite strong reservations from some of its members. All American Meat Inc., doing business as Farmers Country Market, 2800 N. Main St., will receive the license that was being used by Billy Ray’s, 118 E.

RISD holds data day Iran tries to calm Syria crisis for faculty, staff JULIA BERGMAN RECORD STAFF WRITER

Area educators now have a better gauge for the rationale behind their school’s state ranking, although some wariness about the accuracy of the new A-F grading system still remains. A data day was held at Goddard High School, Thursday, to provide each Roswell Independent School District school with an analysis of its ranking within the state’s new grading system. RISD schools will now align their curricula based upon their respective data results. On July 9, the state rolled out its first 2012 grades for more than 800 of New Mexico’s elementary, middle and high schools. Of the 22 schools in the RISD, two received A’s, four

received B’s, five received C’s, eight received D’s and one failed. Susan Sanchez, assistant superintendent of instruction, told the Daily Record in July, “The RISD had 55 percent of its schools proficient in reading and math in grades three through eight and 11. However, there were three non-proficient schools that missed it by two to three points, that received a C. RISD plans to address the academic needs to support the student achievement in providing professional development for our teachers, allocating additional funds to support reading and math interventions.” Andrew Sweet, assistant superintendent for assessment, evaluation and technology, encouraged the

The American Products and Power bus tour makes a stop in Roswell at the Chamber of Commerce, Thursday morning.

The American Energy Alliance wants citizens to know that they’ve got the power when it comes to the nation’s energy crisis. The AEA Bus Tour has been trucking across the country spreading their message of “American Products. American Power,” and Thursday made a stop in Roswell. Thomas J. Pyle, president of the American Energy Alliance, addressed the small crowd of early risers

over breakfast and encouraged them to create dialogue not just among themselves, but with elected officials as well. He said the goal is to “right the ship in Washington.”

“We want to take that community and build communities all across the nation into an ar my of activists and individuals who help us keep on the offense of this issue,” he said. “Because we are under attack. The fossil fuel industry, in particular oil coal and natural gas, in

this country is under an unprecedented attack.” He spoke on how those particular forms of energy create the jobs and opportunities, which is why utilizing domestic energy is imperative. The tour started in Dallas on Monday where former Michael Reagan made an appearance. The bus then made its way to New Mexico, visiting Hobbs, Artesia and Lovington.

While the calendar may indicate that the dog days of summer have passed, Dr. Eugene Sun and BlueCross BlueShield of New Mexico want to remind everyone to continue practicing heat safety. Those at the BCBSNM have noticed an increase in heat-related claims. According to Becky Kenny, head of the company’s media relations department, BCBSNM paid 1,700 claims in 2011, which is about 200 more than they paid in 2010. Sun is the chief medical of ficer at BCBSNM and said August is a tricky time for people in this state. During this time he said the monsoon air flow comes in from Mexico and causes the humidity to increase, an element most people in this state are not used to dealing with. Humidity actually hinders the human body from cooling off properly. “The way we cool off as people is our sweat glands sweat, and then that sweat evaporates and the evaporation cools us,” he explained. “When the humidity is high, that evaporation doesn’t occur as efficiently, so we don’t cool off as well as we usually do

when it’s very dry out.” He advises those who know they will be outside for an extended period of time to be prepared and drink fluids ahead of time, and then have fluids with them while they are outdoors. He also encourages people to try and cover as much as possible by wearing hats, or long-sleeve clothing and above all, sunscreen. Those with health issues such as chronic illnesses, high blood pressure, heart disease and diabetes must be extra cautious and look out for war ning signs like light headedness or dizziness as indicators that the heat is getting to them. Another sure sign that it is time to cool down is if you’re not sweating even though it is hot outside. The best way to combat these symptoms is to get inside where it’s cool, or get into the shade and drink plenty of water. Sun said he really wants people to practice heat safety and avoid leaving small children and pets in the car with the windows up. “A parked car can get as hot as an oven in a short period of time,” he said. “It’s a safety issue for children and animals.” He said anyone can die from the heat, which is why it is imperative to prepare for it.

Ruidoso police charge Hubbard with rape JESSICA PALMER RECORD STAFF WRITER

The Ruidoso Police Department apprehended a suspect in a rape, Wednesday. The arrest followed a report of a woman who made her way to Ruidoso Police Department, early Sunday morning. The victim told of ficials she had been raped by a man who had identified himself as a undercover police officer. Detective Art Nelson of the Ruidoso police said the suspect is David M. Hubbard, 40. The incident reportedly occurred close to midnight on Saturday. The suspect ordered the victim into a vehicle and drove her to the Ruidoso Convention Center, where he sexually assaulted her. According to Nelson, Hubbard did not show any identification to the victim. The victim was able to supply the police with an accurate enough description of the subject and the vehicle, which

Hubbard now faces charges of second-degree criminal sexual penetration, firstdegree kidnapping, false imprisonment and impersonating a police officer. Hubbard turned himself in to the Ruidoso Police Department also on Wednesday. He was released after posting a $250,000 cash-only bond.

them. Rebels claimed the men are military personnel, including some members of Iran’s power ful Revolutionary Guard, who were on a “reconnaissance mission” to help Assad’s crackdown. Iran, however, says the 48 were pilgrims visiting a Shiite shrine in Damascus. Salehi said Wednesday that some of the pilgrims are retired members of the ar my and Revolutionary Guard. The overwhelmingly Sunni Muslim rebels have also seized 11 Lebanese Shiite pilgrims who have been held in norther n Syria since May. Some 30 countries attended the meeting, including Russia and China, as well as far-off Benin, Cuba and Mauritania. The meeting was called at short notice, and most countries were represented at the ambassador level. Russia in the past has urged the West to allow Tehran to take part in international discussions on how to settle the Syrian crisis, arguing that the Islamic republic could play an important role. Moscow has been the main protector and ally of Assad’s regime, shielding it from U.N. sanctions over its brutal crackdown on an uprising that has evolved into a full-blown civil war. The U.S. dismissed the Iranian gathering as “destructive.” On Thursday, govern-

ment troops and rebels clashed in opposition bastions of Aleppo, a city of 3 million people. The state news agency claimed Wednesday that Assad’s force had regained control of the Salaheddine neighborhood, the main rebel area in Aleppo. But activists said rebels were still putting up a fight there on Thursday. The regime has been trying to drive rebels out of Aleppo for two weeks. But the blistering attacks on rebel positions from the ground and the air appear to be only slowly chipping away at the opposition’s grip on its strongholds. Aleppo holds great symbolic and strategic importance. Some 25 miles from the Turkish border, it has been a pillar of regime support during the uprising. An opposition victory there would allow easier access for weapons and fighters from Turkey, where many rebels are based. Syria’s close ties to Iran and the Islamic militant group Hezbollah in Lebanon mean that the conflict has the potential to draw in the country’s neighbors. Also Thursday, Assad appointed a new prime minister to replace the one who defected to neighboring Jordan this week. State-run news agency SANA said he appointed Health Minister Wael Nader al-Halqi, a Sunni member of the ruling Baath party from the southern province of Daraa, the birthplace of the revolt.

chug along to Albuquerque. After about six weeks of traveling, the tour will end in Washington, D.C., where Pyle said he and everyone else on the bus will deliver the petitions to the leaders in the House, the Senate and President Obama and send a message. He said he wants government officials to know, “We the people want you to re-evaluate what you’re doing and the impact you’re having on the energy industry.” This is the third year of the tour and each year has brought a new theme. Pyle said last year the company wanted to promote what he referred to as “energy inventory awareness,” or letting people know just how many natural resources this country has. This year, he said, is more about what threats the nation’s energy faces. AEA consultant Mike Mckenna urged those in attendance to sign the petition and the bus as a sign of solidarity for the cause. “As we go along people think, ‘Hey I’m not alone. I’m not the only one who thinks this is important,’” he said. “It’s a sign of a community that’s visible.” Pyle said there are important energy states in this country and New Mexico is certainly one of them. There were other reasons besides the aliens that brought the tour to Roswell. “Most important, we

pick communities that don’t often have an opportunity to have something like this,” he said. “They feel like someone’s listening to them and someone’s paying attention to them, so it gives us a good feeling as well.” Dorrie FaubusMcCarthy, the executive director of the Chamber of Commerce said the chamber agreed to host the event without hesitation because of its pertinent message. “It says right there on the bus ‘American Products. American Power,’” she said. “That to me says everything. They’re mainly traveling to deliver the message of affordable and reliable energy and the importance of free market and less taxes, and I think that’s important to everybody.” During the mor ning session, Pyle said New Mexico is competing with states that have a lot of private and state land. He mentioned states like South Dakota that are creating energy the country needs while keeping the state rate of unemployment low. In ter ms of employment and opportunities created, Faubus-McCarthy said Roswell is on track with the rest of the nation, though people may not realize it. “I think that they sometimes put Roswell on a back burner,” she said. “I think we stack up very well. I think really and truly Roswell keeps up with the rest of the country. They kind of forget sometimes that we do.”

Winter said the board decided “we needed to change the direction of that organization immediately as well as address the arrest.” She said, “clearly, there is a responsibility on Mr. May’s part in what has transpired to date.” The board’s decision is likely the first step toward firing May and Duf f or pressuring them to resign. May said in a telephone interview, “I am proud of my service. I did everything I could to help defend and protect and improve the missions and programs of the Finance Authority. I think the Finance Authority, until this most recent incident, is better.” May said he will continue to cooperate with investigators to “get to the bottom of it and tell the truth.” Campbell, according to an arrest warrant affidavit, has acknowledged faking the audit. After his release from jail on Wednesday, Campbell told KOB-TV that he didn’t steal any money and said it was a “mistake on my part” to falsify financial statements. May has told the board that the fraudulent audit was the product of a “rogue employee,” and said he and other senior executives relied on Campbell’s assurances that there were no problems with the audit.

educators to think systemically. “You’re going to see some stuff this morning that ought to scream at you about regardless of whether Johnny is in the target group or he’s in the top three or he’s in the bottom quartile, this aspect of our instructional program is not happening, and the kid didn’t matter. It’s what we were doing with this piece of assessment framework, this performance standard that’s not happening.”

Heading the data discussion, Dr. Suchint Sarangar m, assistant superintendent for assessment, accountability and technology, told attendees that for elementary and middle schools, 90 percent of their A-F grade points are generated from the state’s Standards Based Assessment test scores, which evaluate proficiency in reading and math, and 60 percent for high schools. He urged teachers to use the SBA to set a target for status and growth. New

The state auditor’s office is overseeing a forensic audit of the authority and board members say that will determine whether any money is missing. National credit rating agency have said they’re considering whether to downgrade the authority’s bond ratings because of concerns that the forged financial documents show a potential lack of financial oversight. May joined the authority last September after serving as Gov. Susana Martinez’s Cabinet secretary of the Department of Finance and Administration. Duff and Campbell started at the authority in 2005. There’s been no indication of potential wrongdoing by May, but he has been criticized by some board members for his handling of the scandal after the authority discovered the fake audit last month. May quickly hired a nationally recognized law firm and auditor to conduct an investigation, saying he wanted to signal to Wall Street that the financial agency was addressing its problems. However, the board overruled May and decided to have a similar probe handled through the state auditor’s office to ensure its independence. The criminal complaint for the arrests of Duff and Campbell said they agreed to accounting changes in 2011 that made the authority’s revenues appear Mexico teachers must now focus on each of their students’ growth over the course of a year, as each student counts much more than in the past. Dr. Barbara Ryan, principal at Pecos Elementary, which received a C, said, “In the past you just had to have so many students proficient and if you had that many students proficient then your school did well. Now every single student counts equally and we have to show growth of every single student.” R yan said her grade level representatives will now discuss the data with Pecos teachers at each grade level, examine areas of weakness and individual students and then plan accordingly. At Pecos, Ryan said the data show reading deficiencies in critical thinking and comprehension to answer questions more completely for grades three through five. As for math, deficiencies range depending on the grade level. A bilingual school, onethird of Pecos students do not speak English when they enter the school,

$40 million stronger than actual amounts. The audit and its financial statements were made available to potential investors in the agency’s bonds and some of the charges allege that the two men conspired to misrepresent the authority’s finances to ratings agencies, bond buyers and the state. However, the revenue in question — money that was transferred to the state at the request of the Legislature to help cover government budget shortfalls — was never pledged to back bonds that are the focus of investors and rating agencies. The revenue represented cash balances from fees and other money the authority received for various programs it administers. The fake 2011 audit also makes note of the accounting change for the revenue transfer and explains why it was done. The authority is a public corporation that acts like a bank, providing low-cost financing to local governments for projects ranging from government buildings to sewers and drinking water systems and equipment such as fire trucks. The authority’s financing is separate from bonds issued directed by state government using tax revenues to retire the debts. The NMFA is governed by a board of directors, a majority of them appointed by the governor. R yan said. In ter ms of test scores, Pecos ranks first in the city in math and third in reading. Yet R yan is wary that the new A-F grading system may not be accurately portraying a school’s performance.

On Tuesday, Gov. Susana Martinez announced that schools that received a D or F grade will have the chance to participate in the University of Virginia-based School Turnaround Specialist Program, known for significantly improving math and reading scores. Sunset Elementary was the only RISD school to fail. El Capitan Elementary, Monterrey Elementary, Nancy Lopez Elementary, Roswell High, Sierra Middle, University High, Valley View Elementary and Washington Ave Elementary all received D’s. A complete list of every school grade can be found on the New Mexico Public Education Department’s website: http:// /SchoolData/School Grading.aspx.

hasn’t always been the case. He said the Institute used to have everyone come to campus at once, a method that proved quite chaotic with 500plus people milling about. About five years ago the idea came about to watch how the United States Military Academy processed their 1,000 new students. They came back to New Mexico and allowed different groups to matriculate on different days and it’s been smooth sailing ever since. New cadets who arrived earlier in the week, affectionately known as RATs, could been seen Thursday in their red shirts, black shorts and tube socks as they learned the ropes from older cadets, a process that Brig. Gen. Richard Geraci, commandant of cadets and dean of students, said benefits everyone involved. “What we use matriculation for is a leader training and development exercise,” he said. “So once we train the cadet leaders, we let them exe-

cute the matriculation. We bring the old cadets back a week early, give them leadership training, help them in planning, then they, in turn, assist the new cadets and their families, making sure they take care of their rooms, getting their medical records and getting to the right stations.” The hands-off method used by the faculty during matriculation allows them to cater to the parents, something he feels is a must during this process. “It’s really important during matriculation for us to establish a solid relationship with the parents, answer all the questions and really welcome them into the NMMI family,” he said. It’s this sort of comfort that Glenda Smith appreciates as she sends her granddaughter Anabelle to the Institute, all while having to evacuate their home in Oklahoma due to fires.

Col. George Brick, vice dean of academics and principal of the high school, said one way of bridging helping the parents deal with any separation issues is keeping them abreast of their child’s education.

“It’s important to keep parents in the loop and there’s a couple ways we do that,” he said. “First thing we do is make sure that parents know how to contact the advisors, the faculty and people in those positions. Then we make sure that things are available online for the parents.”

Could state be headed for another computer crisis?

SANTA FE — During the administration of Gov. Bill Richardson, a crisis erupted over the underpayment or non-payment of state bills to its suppliers and contractors. Some small businesses reported having to close because of not being able to collect from the state. Other businesses cut off the state’s credit. Later, the state ran into trouble collecting federal funds because the data in its claims for reimbursement was incorrect or in an unsuitable form. The first evidence of this crisis occurred several months earlier when state employees began receiving incorrect paychecks or no paycheck at all. Since state payrollers were closer to the problem, they knew where to go to get it solved quickly. But businesses throughout the state didn’t have the quick access to Santa Fe decision makers, so their problems festered. Could we be seeing the same sequence beginning again? Are




any companies doing business with our state government receiving incorrect or delayed payments? If it is happening, no evidence has surfaced publicly, so far. But during the Richardson administration, several months passed after state employee problems were solved before the public became aware it also was happening to many businesses. If you, dear reader, know of such examples, please contact me, contact your local newspaper and contact your legislators. Let’s not let the problem fester again this time. Here’s what happened last time

and what may be occurring today. When former Gov. Bill Richardson took office in 2003, he had dozens of bold ideas to try. At the time, New Mexico was rolling in money so the governor was able to implement many of them. One of those great ideas was to replace 70 different antiquated computer systems with one big, powerful system. Peoplesoft, a respected company, was awarded the business. But since Gov. Richardson had many new projects to fund, he wanted to do this one with the least amount of money possible. So instead of buying a computer system tailored to our needs, he bought an off-the-shelf model and hired another company to teach state employees how to adapt it and use it. Wait, there’s more. He didn’t have all employees trained. The top employees were trained to go back and train everyone else. Such complex conversions were taking other states in the neigh-

borhood of 28 months. Richardson wanted it completed in half the time at half the cost. It was far too much to ask of anyone’s employees. The problems that resulted took years to remedy. The last to be fixed were the federal reports for reimbursement. The state lost many millions because of inadequate training and testing of the new system. By the end of the Richardson administration most departments had their act together. Some departments that had the good luck or foresight to hire at least a few people with exceptional talent and experience adapted quickly and are running smoothly. A few still are recovering from mistakes of the past. At this time last year, Medicaid was looking at having to replace federal money with state money because it could not justify up to $100 million of reimbursements it already had received. But now we have another problem. Some new department and

agency heads appointed by Gov. Susana Martinez are not pleased with their information technology staff so they are transferring them elsewhere. One of those agencies handles the state employees’ payroll. The new employees who took over did not understand the system. The state has hired two different private contractors to fix the problems and to train the new staff. The employees who were transferred out of that division have not been asked to come back and help train their replacements. Consultants are being contracted to do that. Word is that other divisions and agencies are finding ways to shed unwanted employees. Could those that handle the computers also be a part of that action?

National Opinion Wall Street

When is bad employment news widely perceived as good news for investors? When it’s so bad that Federal Reserve chairman Ben Bernanke responds by pumping more money into the economy. Thus, the paradoxical spectacle of many financial firms actually rooting for lousy job numbers when they were released Aug. 3. Similar yearning for setbacks in housing, manufacturing, retail sales and other economic numbers also could help trigger yet another “rescue” mission by the Fed. The underlying problem with this familiar scenario: At some point, if the Fed keeps printing money we don’t really have to prop up stock-price levels that aren’t really justified, the U.S. dollar inevitably will lose value. And as long-term logic warns, if our nation — and many European nations — can’t get their massive and still-soaring public debts under control, that collective red-ink flood will remain a rising threat to a sustained economic recovery. Bernanke periodically tries to make that point while urging Congress to adopt effective deficit-reduction measures. Still, after the Fed panel met last, it released a statement assuring that it “expects to maintain a highly accommodative stance for monetary policy.” In other words, if the economy doesn’t climb out of its rut by the next Fed meeting in six weeks, Bernanke just might prime that pump again by printing more money. You need not be a Wall Street tycoon to find such “reassurance” fleeting at best. And when bad jobs news is regarded as good stock-market news, our investment system needs a more balanced equation.

U.S. drought

The nation is suffering its worst drought in decades. Only in the 1930s and 1950s has a drought covered more land, a recent federal report noted. The National Climatic Data Center in Asheville, N.C., said 55 percent of the country was in a moderate to extreme drought by the end of June. And thus far, despite a few showers here and there, things aren’t getting any better. Topsoil has turned dry while “crops, pastures and rangeland have deteriorated at a rate rarely seen in the last 18 years,” the climate center said. Corn, wheat and soybean crops have been hit hard, particularly in the traditionally productive Midwest. Cattle growers, with little productive rangeland and less corn for feed, have been selling off herds. In the short run, this might cause a dip in beef prices at the supermarket, but over the long haul, those prices are likely to rise. In fact, the U.S. Department of Agriculture anticipates that food prices as a whole will rise by 3 percent next year. That’s an unsettling prospect when the economy continues to stagnate. Guest Editorial The Pueblo (Colo.) Chieftain DEAR DOCTOR K: I was just diagnosed with dry AMD. I’d like to learn more about the condition. DEAR READER: Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is an eye disease that strikes at the macula, a small part of the retina that is responsible for sharp, central vision. People with AMD often develop blurred or distorted vision. The colors they see are faded. Reading can become dif ficult. They cannot clearly see objects directly in front of them, which can cause trouble in recognizing faces. Eventually they may develop a blind spot in the middle of their field of vision that expands as the disease progresses. There are two main for ms of AMD: — Dry AMD. Most people with

The ticking time bomb of Iran and Obama

Last week, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad posted on his website his most recent anti-Semitic tirade, saying global forces should join together to annihilate Israel. Meanwhile, in Orlando, Fla., President Barack Obama had a takeout plate of pulled pork and rice. The Jerusalem Post reported Ahmadinejad as saying, “Anyone who loves freedom and justice must strive for the annihilation of the Zionist regime in order to pave the way for world justice and freedom.” Those words came from the same international leader who



AMD have the dry type, as you do. In dry AMD, there are no new blood vessels growing under the back of the eye, as there are in wet AMD. Dry AMD may affect only one eye at first, causing gradual distortion of the visual field and blurring of central sight. Over time, the second eye may also show symptoms. Some cases of dry AMD progress to wet AMD.



called the Holocaust a myth and entreated that Israel should be “wiped off the page of time” in a 2005 speech. One might think Ahmadinejad’s caustic influence would play out with only extremists, until one realizes that his words preceded Iran’s annual “Quds Day” (Aug. 17), a

— Wet AMD. People with wet AMD all start out with the dry form. Wet AMD is less common but more serious than dry. It progresses more rapidly, and vision loss can occur suddenly. With wet AMD, abnormal blood vessels grow beneath the retina, the part in the back of the eye that sees light. These abnormal vessels can rupture and leak blood, which injures the retina and leads to scars. (I’ve posted a picture showing how vision is damaged by AMD on the website. Take a look.) Treatment options for dry AMD are limited. High doses of particular supplements may slow (and sometimes prevent) progression from inter mediate to advanced AMD. The supplements include vitamins C and E, beta carotene,

nationwide event and national holiday (since 1979) during which massive crowds condemn Israel and the U.S. with chants of “Death to Israel” and “Death to America.” To add insult to injury, in the past week, Iranian officials have chided increased Western sanctions as “warfare.” Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, who holds the last word on all Iranian state matters, retorted that his Islamic Republic can overcome the latest round of sanctions restricting their oil and money. And a top Iranian official said his government will share “experience and capabilities” with the regime

zinc and copper. Because smoking can accelerate AMD damage, quitting is a must. Wearing hats and sunglasses that block the sun’s blue wavelengths — which may promote AMD — also provide protection. For people with wet AMD, medicines called anti-VEGF drugs have recently become available. VEGF is the name for a natural chemical that causes blood vessels to grow; it stimulates the growth of the abnormal blood vessels that are the cause of wet AMD. Medicines that block the action of VEGF can stop wet AMD in its tracks. Colleagues here at Harvard Medical School played a major role in this discovery. A small number of people with See DR.

Camp Mary White’s anniversary

Dear Editor: The Friends of Camp Mary White want to thank all area persons who experienced the magical celebration of the 85th birthday of Camp Mary White on July 21 in the Sacramento Mountains, near Weed. Our open house with the reunion of former staff, campers and activities commemorating Camp Mary White traditions and silent auction was a great success! We want to thank the Roswell Daily Record’s Julia Bergman and Rey Berrones for getting out our notice of invitation out to the Roswell public. Thanks especially to Phelps Anderson for loaning us his authentic chuck wagon. The Anderson chuck wagon was the centerpiece of our re-enactment of the chuck wagon dinner hosted by Elza White (“Daddy White”) at Camp Mary White’s dedication of Ingham Hall in 1928. Our ribbon-cutting ceremony honored donors for the beautiful new metal roofs on the old Ingham Hall (The Lodge), Woody’s Cabana, the kitchen and one cabin in the Oak’s campsite. The donors are: Armko Industries Inc., Andrus Brothers Roofing, Temple Electric, Hub City Plumbing and Lee Lewis Construction Inc., all of Lubbock, Texas, BRI Roofing, and LRL of Dallas. Special thanks go also to the new owners of Camp Mary White, Barbara and Mark Gibbins, and the descendants of Miss Mary White: Sally and Jack Marsh and Lorraine and Robert Vogel for partnering with Friend’s of Camp Mary White to restore and improve the camp for the next generation of girls, young women and family camping. We now have a new group added to our fold, “The Sons of CMW,” a dedicated group of men with the passion and construction skills required for the camp’s physical restoration. Friends of Camp Mary White ar e still seeking memorabilia, donors and old friends. For more information on the organization and current pictures of the 85th anniversary, go to our F a c e b ook page at: s-of-Camp-Mary-White/131470037183 or contact us at Bob and Nancy Phillips Friends of Camp Mary White

stand by them. The next day he is the pro-Palestinian in chief, dissing Israel’s president to the French president. (Remember when Obama belittled Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu during a hot-mic moment after French President Nicolas Sarkozy said he “cannot bear Netanyahu; he’s a liar”? Obama replied, “You’re fed up with him, but I have to deal with him even more often than you.”) In 2010, The Jerusalem Post reported that only 10 percent of Jewish Israelis really believed that Obama is “more proIsraeli” than pro-Palestinian. With Egypt granting the Muslim Brotherhood’s rise to power, Syria percolating with chemical weapons — which some are saying were possibly smuggled from Saddam Hussein’s alleged surplus — Hezbollah perched in Lebanon and Hamas working internal affairs, Israel remains in the cross hairs of the Middle East thugs. Imagine the volatility that will reign in the Middle East during the next four years! And 43 percent of Americans really want to re-elect a U.S. president who, rather than come to the active aid of our greatest ally in the Middle East, disses Israeli leaders on French soil? Mark my words. America could very well aid and abet World War III with a leader like President Obama who is in his second term. Obama already has initiated that political momentum with his actions and inactions, but will we stand by and watch him carry it to fruition in a second term? Foreign dictators and other extremists are praying U.S. citizens re-elect Obama. The truth is that the world’s stability is buckling under the lethal combination of a militant Ahmadinejad and a passive Obama — one pushing for the annihilation of Israel and the other sitting back and waiting for it to happen, one creating the bomb and the other sitting back and watching while

serious, end-stage disease may benefit from a new implant. The implant is a tiny telescopic lens that is surgically placed within the eye.

Dear Editor, In reply to Kenda Willey’s letter printed July 27, I thought it might be beneficial to your readers to relay the information I have learned about Obamacare by reading part of the massive bill (Who could read 2,300 pages?), and listening to CSpan when the congressmen were discussing this bill. The bill contains 21 new taxes and 12 of them hit the poor and middle class. Most do not pertain to health care. Obama is taking $5 billion out of Medicare. The premium deducted from Social Security recipients is going from $96.40 a month this year to $247 a month in 2014. If you are over 70 and need medical care, your case will be reviewed by a panel in Washington, D.C., to see if they think you are worth enough to the government for them to pay for your care (hence, “death panels”). The balance of the $5 billion will come by paying less to doctors and hospitals, thus causing many doctors to find a new profession and definitely to quit accepting Medicare patients. Kenda does not sound old enough to worry about medicare, so she should know that a family of four making $30,000/year will have to pay $2,000 for medical care each year before Obamacare kicks in. This payment naturally goes up if you are making more money. The government will have access to all your financial information and can make electronic transfers from your accounts. I read this on two separate pages, one saying they could withdraw the premium from your bank account, and the next page stated all your financial information. It states in the bill that Muslims and union workers will not have to pay a premium. It will be free to them. The taxpayers will have to pay the retirements of union workers. Remember in the first stimulus Obama gave $8 billion to the unions. This was supposedly to pay retirement funds. Now watch the USPO, I am sure the taxpayers will have to pay the $5 billion they are now in default. I agree we need health care reform, but Obamacare is not a health care bill, but more of a destroy America bill. Remember, he made it effective in 2014 because he knew that he could never be re-elected if it was in effect and the people knew what was in it. Sincerely, Marion Riley Roswell the fuse is lit. Add to all that the Obama administration’s second-term plans to radically reduce the U.S. military! WorldNetDaily’s Jerusalem bureau chief, Aaron Klein, has just written (scheduled for release Aug. 14) a groundbreaking expose and borderline prophetic look into exactly what will happen in a second term with Obama. For example, in “Fool Me Twice: Obama’s Shocking Plans for the Next Four Years Exposed,” Klein details Obama’s second-ter m “large-scale reductions to the U.S. military. Some examples: Scaling back the size of all U.S. ground forces by 20 percent; reducing the Navy’s surface fleet by 20 percent; reducing the Air Force by two combat air wings; reducing the U.S. nuclear arsenal to no more than 292 deployed nuclear weapons and the complete elimination of the T rident II nuclear missile; the complete halt of all further missile defense development; the total cancelation of the second SSN-744 Virginia Class submarine.” Fellow Americans, America and the world need a U.S. president who will restore our economy and steady chaos in the world, not usher in Armageddon with his anti-Semitic, noncommittal, conciliatory, laissez-faire leadership. The very personage of the U.S. president should emanate deterrence, not indifference. We need a president who will honor the timeless traditional relationship between America and Israel and reciprocate a blessing back to the U.S. by simultaneously observing these eternal promises: “Pray for the peace of Jerusalem; they shall prosper that love thee!” “Blessed is everyone who blesses you, O Israel, and cursed is everyone who curses you.” Follow Chuck Norris through his official social media sites, on Twitter @chucknorris and Facebook’s “Official Chuck Norris Page.” He blogs at © 2012 Chuck Norris, or call 877-649-9457 toll-free to order it.) Dry AMD progresses very slowly. As a result, people usually manage quite well even with some central vision loss. If the condition worsens, low-vision aids such as magnifying lenses or closed-circuit televisions can help maintain quality of life.

Daughter of early onset Alzheimer’s patient on genetic testing CONTRIBUTION BY STEFANIA SILVESTRI

Sufferers, caregivers and children of those affected by early onset Alzheimer’s disease (EOAD) share hardships unlike those of late onset. Yes, losing someone in this way is always difficult but it’s a difficulty not many of us face while we’re still young. Who can really understand what it’s like to be the daughter of a 50year -old man, who is tucked into bed at night by his 10-year-old daughter? And who can really know what a 50-year -old man feels as he is tucked into bed by his 10-year -old daughter? Young children of sufferers deal with this disease much differently than their adult counterparts. Anger, despair, and confusion are the feelings of caregivers. And yet, as children, our feelings are often paired with even darker emotions. One of which is the feeling that weighs heavier and more piercing than the rest—the feeling of fear. Will I be next? Will my siblings? Genetic testing can offer a glimpse into the future

for children of EOAD patients like my sisters and me. According to the National Institute of Aging, most cases of EOAD are familial, or genetic. If my father did in fact have a mutated gene, which was responsible for the development of his EOAD, then my sisters and I would have a 50% chance of developing the disease as well. Will any of us take this test in the future? It would certainly erase any mystery we might have of developing the disease later in life. But do I want to know? Will solving that mystery make me any less fearful? Perhaps that is why I became obsessed with psychics a year after my father passed away. I could not stop reading one such psychic’s book, which dealt with dying and claimed to know what it was really like when you died. She also gave hope that it was possible to speak to your dead loved ones—through her of course. I bought a book of hers and I was hooked. She would help me make peace with losing my father. Maybe she’d even tell me how my future looked. For

some reason, I was sure of it. My mother knew of my fascination with this psychic who often frequented the Montel Williams Show and it just so happened, my mother was at an auction where tickets to the show would be up for bids. And it just so happened she won two. I was so eager and so happy and so hopeful! I would be able to communicate with my father—or at least know how he really felt back then, during the years he couldn’t speak to us any longer. I could even have, perhaps, a bit of closure and be able to ask that dreaded question: Are my sisters or I next? Before taping, I was selected from the audience to ask the psychic a question, and almost passed out from anticipation as I waited for Montel to point at me and give me the chance to stand. But what I heard meant nothing to me. In response to my question of whether or not my dad had anything to say, the answers were without a doubt, empty of any inkling of my father. “He felt you all near

Wood receives Wool Growers Scholarship J’Nae Wood, of Capitan, was awarded the New Mexico Wool Growers Inc. scholarship at the NMWGI’s recent annual meeting, held June 2426, in Ruidoso. “J’Nae has a bright future, and we are proud to be able to help her pursue her goals,” said Marc Kincaid, NMWGI president. “We look forward to hearing about her successes, both as a student and as a member of the agricultural industry.” Wood is a 2012 graduate of Capitan High School, and plans to attend New Mexico State University in the fall to study range management and agricultural education. Her future goals include teaching agricul-

ture in the public schools and/or owning a cattle ranch. While in high school, Wood was active in both 4-H and FFA, participating in wool judging, wildlife, scrapbooking, photography and archery. In 2011, she placed first in wool evaluation at the State FFA judging contest, and in 2012, placed second in the same contest. She credits 4-H and FFA for helping develop her leadership and public speaking skills, build her self-confidence, and prepare her for the future. Wood held numerous leadership positions in both organizations on the local, district and state levels, including New Mexico State 4-H Secre-

him,” were the first words I remember hearing. Then: “He was met by a little boy with a mark on his face” was the steady mantra she kept repeating. As I was listening to her and realizing she was not going to give me what I wanted, and what I thought I needed, I looked down at my mother who quickly stood up. “Oh yeah, I think it was his uncle…” and then we sat down while I cried the rest of the taping. I was later edited out. Today, six years and zero stints with speaking to celebrity psychics later, it seems I can finally get at least one of my questions answered. Genetic testing affords me the possibility to sit as my father had years before, and hear my fate read to me from the other side of a desk in a doctor’s office. Though I could opt to have this knowledge, I choose not to. I do not want to know if the disease will affect me. I will instead live the life my father showed me how to live, mainly, in the ways of protecting myself financially should anything ever arise in the future. I need to save for that “rainy day” as though

perhaps, a torrential downpour could fall at any moment. In so doing, I know that even if I can’t ever hear his voice again, I will feel it, however much my fears themselves keep me back from ever really knowing what will happen. In the peace I’ve found since losing my father to that terrible illness, I realize there will always remain that fear I’ve had since the day he began to stutter. It was of course, just a fear of losing him that settled first. Now that he is gone, I know life will continue regardless of any pain that was suffered beforehand. I cannot control how I will live or how I will die—nor can I do the same for my sisters. What we can do is laugh, we can cry, we can scream from the top of our lungs and hang up on each other when we start to bicker. Though the fear of one day developing EOAD is not a feeling I will every fully come to grips with, it will be a feeling I can learn to manage. I will not sit with my legs nervously shaking, my fingers deftly picking the same small section of my thumb—Its sting I can already imagine—listening

Lloyd scores 2, US takes gold

The United States players pose for photographs after winning the gold medal in the women's soccer final against Japan at the 2012 Summer Olympics, Thursday.

WEMBLEY, England (AP) — Abby Wambach didn’t put on her “Greatness Has Been Found” T -shirt right away. She instead strayed from her teammates and knelt alone at midfield — and cried into a U.S. flag. Yes, greatness has been found. And payback has been achieved. The Americans are again on top

of the women’s soccer world. They won their third straight Olympic gold medal Thursday, beating Japan 2-1 in a rematch of last year’s World Cup final and avenging the most painful loss in their history. Carli Lloyd scored early in both halves, Hope Solo leaped and dived to make saves, and the entire ros-

CHICAGO (AP) — Peyton Manning’s first appearance with the Denver Broncos was brief and a bit uneven. Manning got intercepted near the goal line on the game’s opening possession and watched from the sideline the rest of the way as Denver beat the Chicago Bears 31-3 in the preseason opener on Thursday night. All eyes were on Manning and the results were

mixed for the four -time MVP. Considering he missed all of last season with a nerve injury in his neck that weakened his throwing arm and led to his tearful farewell from the Indianapolis Colts, it was hardly a surprise. Manning is trying to show he still has something left with Denver (No. 10 in the AP Pro32), and all things considered, coach John Fox was impressed. “He was remarkable,” Fox said. “He came back, he’s worked very hard. He

attention — just as it was last year and despite all the other Olympic events. Even President Barack Obama, while visiting the U.S. Olympic Committee’s training center in Colorado Springs, Colo., offered a “special shoutout” to the women’s team for its victory. At the final whistle, Solo found herself enveloped in a group-hug celebration that unleashed a year of bottled-up frustration. Many of the players paraded with the flag and put on the celebratory T shirts. Wambach, the outspoken cocaptain who missed the Beijing Games with a broken leg, was always the player most impassioned about the mission to get the Americans back atop the


podium. She spoke of “nightmares” from the Japan defeat, and now they’ve been replaced by tears of happiness. The loudest of cheers erupted when she received her gold medal, and she was the only one to get a hug from American IOC member Angela Ruggiero, who draped the medal around Wambach’s neck. The U.S. team has won four of the five Olympic titles since women’s soccer was introduced at the 1996 Atlanta Games, taking second place at the 2000 Games in Sydney. Settling for silver, the Japanese players huddled together in defeat, with coach Norio Sasaki trying to encourage them. Karina Maruyama was inconsolable. Aya Miyama bowed her head and Asuna Tanaka wiped away tears. But they were all smiles when they re-emerged for the medal ceremony, bouncing their way to

another cycle left in that up-and-down career. Pettersson, a winner earlier this year in South Carolina down the coast at Hilton Head, got the best of the weather on a steamy day on the Ocean Course and did not waste the opportunity. He made three birdies in four holes, never dropped a shot and wound up with a 6-under 66. “There really wasn’t much wind on the front nine, so I knew I had to keep going low because I figured the wind would get up,” Pettersson said. “The wind started blowing a little bit on the back nine, and I carried on solid play. So it was a great day for me.” It was a good day for Tiger Woods, nothing more. Despite having to get up-and-down for bogey on three holes, he made enough birdie putts for a 69, a reasonable start as he tries to end the longest drought of his career in the majors. This is his 14th

the podium. Lloyd’s goals came in eighth and 54th minutes, making it four goals in the tournament for the midfielder who lost her long-held starting job weeks before the Olympics. She got back on the field when Shannon Boxx injured her hamstring in the opening game and started every game since. Yuki Ogimi answered in the 63rd minute, and Mana Iwabuchi nearly had the equalizer in the 83rd — stripping the ball from captain Christie Rampone and swooping in on Solo — only to be thwarted when the goalie flung her entire body to the left to push the shot away. Throughout the game, Japan perhaps played just as beautifully as the Americans, using speed and discipline to dominate possession and scoring chances for long stretches. The Japanese were unfortunate not to have a

major since he won his last one in 2008, and the last one of an otherwise good season. “Anything in the 60s is going to be a good start in a major championship,” Woods said. “And I’m right there.” He had plenty of company, some players who had not been heard from in a while, others that were all too familiar. Gary Woodland, who started the season with a new coach (Butch Harmon) and injured himself working too hard on the changes, is feeling better and hitting it longer than ever. He opened with a 67, as did McIlroy and Gonzalo Fernandez-Castano. “I drove the ball the best I’ve driven it all year,” Woodland said, one of the most powerful players in the game. “And when I drive it like that, I’m playing a game that most guys can’t play out here.” Daly made an eagle on the par-5 11th hole and was in the group at 68 that included former U.S. Open champion Geoff Ogilvy and defending PGA champion Keegan Bradley, who had a birdieeagle start before he settled into his round.

Roundup: Bolt leads Jamaican sweep of 200-meter medals

Usain Bolt greeted the excited crowd with a royal wave when he was introduced Thursday night. Turns out the sprint king was also waving goodbye to his competition. Bolt blew away the field in the 200-meter final, easing up as he crossed the finish line in 19.32 seconds to become the only man with two Olympic titles in the event. With camera flashes dotting the seats throughout Olympic Stadium, Bolt repeated the 100-200 double he produced at the Beijing Games, leading a Jamaican sweep. Training partner and pal Yohan Blake was second in 19.44, and Warren Weir got the bronze in 19.84, nearly a half-second behind the champion. “I’ve done something that no one has done before, which is defend my double title. Back-to-back for me,” Bolt said. “I would say I’m the greatest.” The 6-foot-5 Bolt celebrated with a couple push-ups and also grabbed a camera from someone in the photographers’ well and trained it at the group who were clicking away. Bolt’s victory dominated the track and field schedule, but American women were all over the London Games — helping the U.S. run its lead in the medals table to 90-80 over China. American teenager Claressa Shields danced, brawled and even stuck out her tongue. She also managed to win the first middleweight gold medal in women’s Olympic boxing. The 17-year-old Shields, from Flint, Mich., was too much for Russian opponent Nadezda Torlopova, posting a 19-12 victory in the final. “This was something I wanted for a long time, even when boxing wasn’t going all right, even when my life wasn’t going all right,” said Shields, who found sanctuary in a boxing gym during a rough childhood. “All I wanted was a gold medal, and I kept working towards it, even when people were saying I couldn’t do it. I’m too young. I couldn’t do it. There were girls who were going to beat me because of better experience, more experience. I proved them all wrong.” Maggie Steffens scored five times and the U.S. women’s water polo team beat Spain 8-5 to take the Olympic tournament for the first time. The American volleyball squad beat South Korea in straight sets and will go for its first indoor women’s gold when it faces Brazil on Saturday in a rematch of the 2008 final. Coach Geno Auriemma and the basketball team also moved into the gold-medal match one day after Misty May-Treanor and Kerri Walsh Jennings won an all-American final in beach volleyball. Not to be outdone, the American men took the top two spots in the men’s decathlon (Ashton Eaton and Trey Hardee) and triple jump (Christian Taylor and Will Claye), raising the U.S. track and field total with three days to go to 24 medals. The other big winner Thursday night was Kenya’s David Rudisha, who set a world

Roswell Daily Record penalty kick awarded in the first half for a clear hand ball by U.S. midfielder Tobin Heath, who stuck out her left arm to stop a free kick inside the area. Japan also had two shots hit the crossbar, one off the left hand of a leaping Solo, who was kept constantly busy for the first time this tournament. The closest the U.S. came to doubling the lead in the first 45 minutes came when Azusa Iwashimizu attempted to clear a routine ball played in front of the net — and headed it off the post. Lloyd’s first goal began with a run by Heath down the left side. She fed Alex Morgan, who settled the ball near the goal line, spun and chipped it toward Wambach. Wambach raised her left foot for the shot, but Lloyd charged in and got to it first, her strong running header beating goalkeeper Miho Fukumoto from 6 yards out. Lloyd extended the lead with a

hasn’t played football in (almost) two years. I thought it was a good first drive in these conditions — it was sloppy. It was sloppy by the receivers as far as the conditions, but I thought it was a very good first outing.” On a cool and rainy night, Manning completed 4 of 7 passes for 44 yards, but didn’t have to contend with Julius Peppers or Brian Urlacher. He had all the time he needed, too, so it remains to be seen how he’ll handle a big hit. But even with little pressure, he still was a bit off target against Chicago (No. 11 tie). On the game’s first play from scrimmage, his pass was broken up by Chicago’s Lance Briggs, and his second was nearly picked off, too. The Bears’ Geno Hayes tipped the ball near midfield, but Jacob Tamme hauled it in for a 12-yard gain to the Chicago 39. After a short run by Willis McGahee,


record while winning the 800 meters in 1:40.91. Among the track finals on tap for Friday is the men’s 4x400-meter relay, which took on added intrigue with Oscar Pistorius and South Africa making the field and a gutsy preliminary performance by Manteo Mitchell of the U.S. The man known as “Blade Runner” because of his carbon-fiber prosthetics will get a chance to run for an Olympic medal after officials accepted South Africa’s protest over a collision and awarded an extra spot in the final. Pistorius already is the first amputee to compete on a Summer Games track. Mitchell was halfway through the opening lap of the relay heat when he felt something pop in his left leg. He managed to keep going and helped the Americans tie for first with the Bahamas in 2:58.87. A few hours later, doctors told him he had a broken leg. “I heard it and I felt it,” Mitchell told The Associated Press. “But I figured it’s what almost any person would’ve done in that situation.” The rest of the Olympic action Thursday:

BASKETBALL The U.S. women’s team faced its first challenge of the Olympics, and found a way to advance. Trailing early in the second half, Auriemma turned to his Olympic rookies and the group — led by Tina Charles and Lindsay Whalen — pressured Australia into turnovers and bad shots. That led to a pivotal scoring run in the third quarter of an 8673 victory. The Americans, seeking a fifth straight gold medal, next play France in a matchup of unbeaten teams. It will be the first time the two teams have played in the Olympics. Lauren Jackson finished with 14 points for Australia. Edwige Lawson-Wade had 18 points to lead France to an 81-64 victory over Russia in the other semi.

CYCLING - BMX Defending champion Maris Strombergs of Latvia eased into the semifinals after escaping an avalanche of crashes at the London Velopark. Strombergs was among eight riders who advanced after three qualifying runs. World champion Sam Willoughby of Australia had to complete two more runs before sealing his own spot in the semis.


There were more than 20 crashes throughout the day. The London Olympic course, with its big jumps and tight corners, has proved to be one of the most difficult in the world. Time trial world champion Connor Fields of the United States was unbeaten after three runs and also qualified directly for the next round.

SWIMMING Eva Risztov of Hungary led most of the way in a grueling open water marathon at Hyde Park, holding off a desperate bid to chase her down by American Haley Anderson. The big crowd was hoping for a gold medal from world champion Keri-anne Payne, but the British swimmer finished fourth. Risztov beat Anderson by four-tenths of a second after nearly two hours of racing around The Serpentine. The winner climbed out of the water, smiling and looking fresh. She even flexed for the big crowd. Risztov retired from swimming after the 2004 Olympics, upset with her results and tired of the pool. She eventually decided to give open water a try, and it sure worked out in a big way. Martina Grimaldi of Italy got the bronze in the 10-kilometer race.

BEACH VOLLEYBALL Germany’s Julius Brink and Jonas Reckermann beat reigning world champions Alison and Emanuel of Brazil 23-21, 16-21, 16-14 in the men’s final. It was the first gold medal for a European team in a sport that has been dominated by the Brazilians and Americans. Brazil saved three match points to tie it after falling behind 14-11. But needing to win by two in the third set, Germany took a 1514 lead and then won it when Emanuel’s spike landed just wide of the sideline. Janis Smedins and Martins Plavins of Latvia took the bronze.

DIVING Chen Ruolin of China won the women’s 10-meter platform gold, easily defending her title from Beijing. Chen totaled 422.30 points during the five-dive final, winning by a 55.80-point margin. She earlier won gold in the 10-meter synchronized and swept the platform events for the second consecutive games. China has won six of seven diving gold medals with only the men’s platform remain-

20-yard right-footer just inside the left post after a run from midfield through the heart of the Japanese defense. Ogimi soon cut the deficit to one after a mad scramble in front of the net. Rampone saved a shot off the line, but the ball went to Homare Sawa, who fed Ogimi for the tap-in. Another scramble followed after U.S. defender Amy LePeilbet saved yet another shot off the line in the 74th minute, but this time her teammates were able to corral the ball before a Japanese player could pounce on it. Boxx was back in the starting lineup after missing four games with the hamstring injury. Lauren Cheney, who injured an ankle in the semifinals, began the game on the bench for the first time this tournament. Canada won the bronze earlier Thursday, beating France 1-0 at Coventry.

Manning found Eric Decker on the left for 10 yards. A 19-yarder to Decker a few plays later put the ball on the 14, and the Broncos looked like they were poised to score. Instead, on third down at the 12, Manning got picked off when Denver’s Brandon Stokley deflected a pass and Major Wright dived for the interception at the 2. Wright then left the game with a hamstring injury. Manning was finished for the night, too, and that brought the biggest story to a close. Another big angle never materialized. That was the Jay Cutler-Brandon Marshall reunion. They put up big numbers in Denver and they’re back together after the Bears (No. 11 tie) acquired Marshall from Miami. That blockbuster trade gave Cutler the go-to target he’s lacked since he arrived from the Broncos and sent expectations soaring in Chicago after a disappointing 8-8 finish. But instead of a first look, fans got a rain check.

SYNCHRONIZED SWIMMING Russia led the technical routine of the team event — as expected. Russia has won this event at the past three Olympics. Featuring Natalia Ishchenko and Svetlana Romashina, the pair that won the duet Tuesday, it collected a near-perfect 98.1 points. The favorites competed to a Russian dance routine composed by Denis Garnizov, as Prince William’s wife, Kate, looked on from the crowd. China was next with 97.0 points and Spain finished third with 96.2 points. Medals will be handed out after Friday’s free routines, with points from both days added up.

CANOE SPRINT The quartet of Tate Smith, Dave Smith, Murray Stewart and Jacob Clear gave Australia a lift with a surprising wire-to-wire win in the men’s 1,000-meter K-4. It was Australia’s first team gold in canoe sprint — and took its overall tally in London to six after wins by cyclist Anna Meares, 100-meter hurdler Sally Pearson and sailors Nathan Outteridge and Iain Jensen in the past three days. Germany collected two more victories, with Tina Dietze and Franziska Weber taking the women’s 500-meter K-2 and Peter Kretschmer and Kurt Kuschela winning the men’s double canoe sprint 1,000. Danuta Kozak won her second gold of the regatta for Hungary, grabbing the top spot in the women’s single kayak 500-meter sprint.

GYMNASTICS - RHYTHMIC Daria Dmitrieva upstaged fellow Russian Evgeniya Kanaeva, taking advantage of the defending Olympic champion’s mistake in her hoop routine to top the standings halfway through individual qualifying. With 57.80 points, Dmitrieva is 0.175 points ahead of Kanaeva going into Friday’s qualifying session with the ribbon and clubs. Liubou Charkashnya of Belarus was third. Russia continued its big day in group qualifying, taking the lead over three-time world champion Italy. Russia, seeking its fourth straight Olympic title, scored 28.375 points for its routine with five balls, while Italy was .275 points behind.

Romney, Obama bemoan attack ads — but both benefit PUEBLO, Colo. (AP) — Mitt Romney and President Barack Obama both deplored the pervasive presence of televised attack ads in the race for the White House on Thursday, though neither being acknowledged helped as well as harmed. Each blamed his foe. Romney went first, saying of the president’s campaign, “They just blast ahead” with ads that have been judged false by independent fact checkers. “I don’t know whatever happened to a campaign of ‘hope and change,”’ he said, a mocking reference to the spirit of optimism that Obama evoked during his successful run for the White House in 2008. Obama ignored the slap. He told an audience in

Colorado that “over the next three months, you will see more negative ads,” and he suggested the blame lies with outside groups backing his rival. “I mean, these super PACs, these guys are writing $10 million checks and giving them to Mr. Romney’s supporters,” he said. Obama spoke as his own campaign unleashed yet another in the attack ad category, this one questioning whether there was ever a year in which Romney paid no federal taxes. ‘We don’t know,” the announcer says, then quickly adds that Romney once “personally approved over $70 million in fictional losses to the IRS as part of ... one of the largest tax avoidance schemes in history.”

Drought worsens in key farm states ST. LOUIS (AP) — The Plains states where the production of corn and soybeans is key are being hit harder by excessive drought conditions in the wake of the hottest month on record in the continental U.S., contributing to a surge in global food prices. The weekly U.S. Drought Monitor map released Thursday showed that the amount of the contiguous U.S. mired in drought conditions dropped a little more than 1 percentage point, to 78.14 percent as of Tuesday. But the expanse still gripped by extreme or exceptional drought — the two worst classifications — rose to 24.14 percent, up nearly 2 percentage points from the previous week. That’s because key farm states didn’t get as much benefit from rains as elsewhere on the heels of temperatures in July that federal scientists said were so high they broke a record set during the Dust Bowl of the 1930s. Growers in Iowa — the nation’s biggest corn and soybean producer — saw their conditions further deteriorate, with the amount of that state in extreme or exceptional drought more than doubling from 30.74 percent last week to 69.14 percent now.

Nebraska, the expanse of land considered in the two worst drought categories rose to 91.2 percent, up 8 percentage points. The amount of Kansas in exceptional drought also more than doubled, up to 38.58 percent from 17.45 percent, while extreme or exceptional drought in Illinois spiked roughly 10 percentage points, to 81.18 percent. “Same song, tenth verse last week as much of the Plains saw the pattern of excessive heat and dryness persist, leading to more expansion across Nebraska, Kansas, Oklahoma and parts of Texas,” Mark Svoboda, a climatologist with the National Drought Mitigation Center, wrote in Thursday’s report. Those dry conditions have factored into a sharp rise in global food prices after three months of decline, the U.N.’s Romebased Food and Agriculture Organization said in its monthly price report Thursday. Severe drought punishing the U.S.’s midsection has sent corn prices soaring by almost 23 percent, and expectations of worsened crop prospects in Russia because of dry weather sent world wheat prices up 19 percent, according to the FAO, which keeps close tabs on volatile global prices.

Spikes in the prices of staple foods have led to riots in some countries in recent years. The U.S. leads the world in exporting corn, soybeans and wheat, and the surging prices are expected to be felt across the international marketplace, hurting poor foodimporting countries, said a study by British charity Oxfam issued on the eve of the U.N. report. The FAO said its overall food price index climbed 6 percentage points in July, although it was well below the peak reached in February 2011. The FAO’s index, considered a global benchmark used to track market volatility and price trends, measures the monthly price changes for a basket of food items including cereals, oils and fats, meat, dairy products and sugar. Corn, wheat, soybean and sugar prices rose. But on a brighter note, the July report said the price of rice and dairy products remained constant and the agency’s meat price index fell. The U.S. Agriculture Department reported this week that as of Sunday exactly half of the nation’s corn crop was rated poor to very poor, up 2 percentage points from the previous week and creeping closer to the peak of 53 percent of 24 years ago.

I am a normal, red-blooded woman, and I need sex several times a month. Is that so wrong? I have resorted to having an affair with a man whose wife isn’t interested in sex, but I would prefer having a sex life with my husband. I think my husband knows I am unfaithful. However, he accepts it because it’s easier for him to deal with than having sex with me. Is there anything I can do to make my husband try again? DESPERATELY SEEKING SEX DEAR DESPERATELY: Having affairs may temporarily satisfy your sexual needs, but it can only damage your marriage further. If ever there were candidates who could benefit from sex therapy, it is you and your husband. Even though he may be reluctant to face this problem, insist that he see a therapist with you. Please don’t wait — it could save your marriage.


DEAR ABBY: I am 38 and have been married to a good husband and provider for 11 years. We have two beautiful children and a lovely home. We appear to be the perfect couple. Our problem is, my husband seems to be intimidated by my sexuality. In the past, I have told my husband what pleases me. My comments made him feel inadequate, and he has completely given up. We haven’t had sex in two years. He says he would rather pleasure himself so he doesn’t have to worry that he isn’t “doing it right.”


DEAR ABBY: I’m 17 and have been best friends with “Alana” for five years.



We do everything together. We like the same things, and we’re so close that we finish each other’s sentences. She’s like a sister to me. However, the difference between us is that Alana gets crushes on boys that never work out, whereas multiple boys have liked me. After each crush falls through, Alana says her life is awful and it must be her fault. When I try to tell her it’s not her fault and she’s a wonderful person, she ends the conversation. It hurts me to see her upset, but sometimes I feel lost about what to do. What can I do to help my friend know she’s a beautiful person inside and out, and she doesn’t need a boy to be happy? I love her and just want her to be OK. BEST FRIENDS IN RANCHO PALOS VERDES, CALIF. DEAR BEST FRIENDS: Until Alana learns for herself that she doesn’t need a boy to be happy, she will continue developing crushes that don’t work out. Boys are attracted to girls who appear to be happy and confident, and your

Nobel economist: Inequality weighs on US economy Roswell Daily Record

AP Photo

Joseph Stiglitz, a winner of the Nobel Prize in Economics, is interviewed at Columbia University, in New York, Thursday, July 26. He is the author of the new book “The Price of Inequality.”

NEW YORK (AP) — What’s wrong with the U.S. economy? Growth comes in fits and starts. Unemployment has been over 8 percent for three and a half years. Cutting taxes and interest rates hasn’t worked, at least not enough. To Joseph Stiglitz, the

Nobel Prize-winning economist, the economy’s strange behavior can be traced to the growing gap between wealthy Americans and everyone else.

NEW YORK (AP) — Natural gas prices surged Thursday after a report showing a smaller than expected increase in U.S. supplies. Futures rose 12 cents, or 4 percent, to $3.05 per 1,000 cubic feet Thursday in New York. The Energy Information Administration reported that natural gas in storage grew by 24 billion cubic feet to 3.241 trillion cubic feet for the week ended Aug. 3. Analysts expected a rise of 27 billion cubic feet to 31 billion cubic feet, according to a survey by Platts, the energy information arm of McGraw-Hill Cos. Still, energy analyst Stephen Schork believes that natural gas prices may be peaking as the summer winds down. “We are on the down slope of seasonal demand,” Schork said in an emailed report. Natural gas futures have

increased about 62 percent since hitting a 10-year low in April because of the hot summer weather. July was the hottest month on record, according to government scientists. Utilities are using the fuel to generate electricity to meet stronger demand from homes and businesses that are cranking up air conditioning. In addition, natural gas producers have cut back after a production boom created a glut of supply. Natural gas inventories typically increase from April through October ahead of heavier demand for heat during the winter. So far, the increase in inventories since April has been the smallest in 12 years. But the EIA still expects supplies to hit a record high of more than 3.9 trillion cubic feet by November.

In his new book, “The Price of Inequality,” he connects surging student loan debt, the real-estate bubble and many of the country’s

other problems to greater inequality. When the rich keep getting richer, he says, the costs pile up. For instance, it’s easier to climb up from poverty in Britain and Canada than in the U.S. “People at the bottom are less likely to live up to their potential,” he says. Stiglitz has taught at Yale, Oxford and MIT. He served on President Bill Clinton’s council of economic advisers, then left the White House for the World Bank, where he was the chief economist. He’s now a professor at Columbia University. In an interview with The Associated Press, Stiglitz singled out the investment bank Goldman Sachs, war ned about worrying over government debt and argued that a wider income gap leads to a weaker economy. Below are excerpts, edited for clarity. ——— Q: The Occupy Wall Street demonstrations are no longer in the news, but you make the case that income inequality is more important than ever. How so?

Friday, August 10, 2012

A: Because it’s getting worse. Look at the recent Federal Reserve numbers. Median wealth fell 40 percent from 2007 to 2010, bringing it back to where it was in the early ‘90s. For two decades, all the increase in the country’s wealth, which was enormous, went to the people at the very top. It may have been a prosperous two decades. But it wasn’t like we all shared in this prosperity. The financial crisis really made this easy to understand. Inequality has always been justified on the grounds that those at the top contributed more to the economy — “the job creators.” Then came 2008 and 2009, and you saw these guys who brought the economy to the brink of ruin walking off with hundreds of millions of dollars. And you couldn’t justify that in terms of contribution to society. The myth had been sold to people, and all of a sudden it was apparent to everybody that it was a lie. Q: Markets aren’t meant to be fair. As long as we have markets, there are

going to be winners and losers. What’s wrong with that? A: I’m not arguing for the elimination of inequality. But the extreme that we’ve reached is really bad. Particularly the way it’s created. We could have a more equal society and a more efficient, stable, higher growing economy. That’s really the “so what.” Even if you don’t have any moral values and you just want to maximize GDP growth, this level of inequality is bad. It’s not just the unfairness. The point is that we’re paying a high price. The story we were told was that inequality was good for our economy. I’m telling a different story, that this level of inequality is bad for our economy. Q: Economic growth is slowing again. Unemployment seems to be stuck above 8 percent. Is that the result of high debts or slower spending? A: The fundamental problem is not government debt. Over the past few years, the budget deficit has been caused by low growth. If we focus on growth, then we get growth, and our deficit will go

30-year loan increased to 3.59 percent, up from 3.55 percent last week. Two weeks ago, the rate fell to 3.49 percent, the lowest since long-ter m mortgages began in the 1950s.

The average rate on the 15-year fixed mortgage, a popular refinancing option, rose to 2.84 percent. That’s up from 2.83 percent last week and a record low of 2.80 percent the previous week. Cheap mortgages have helped drive a modest housing recovery this year. Home sales are higher than last year, although they are still below healthy levels. Home prices are rising in many markets. Low mortgage rates could also provide some help to the economy if more people refinance. When people refinance at lower rates, they pay less interest on their loans and have more money to spend. Many homeowners use the savings on renovations, furniture, appliances and other improve-

down. If we just focus on the deficit, we’re not going to get anywhere. Q: And those with money to spend, you point out, spend less of every dollar. Those at the top of the income scale save nearly a quarter of their income. Those at the bottom spend every penny. Is that why tax cuts seem to have little effect on spending?

A: Exactly. When you redistribute money from the bottom to the top, the economy gets weaker. And all this stuff about the top investing in the country is (nonsense). No, they don’t. They’re asking where they can get the highest returns, and they’re looking all over the globe. So they’re investing in China and Brazil and Latin America, emerging markets, not America.

If the U.S. is a good place to invest, we’ll get money from all over the world. If we have an economy that’s not growing, we won’t get investment. That’s exactly what’s happening. The Federal Reserve stimulates the economy by buying bonds. Where’s the money go? Abroad.

A weaker U.S. economy and uncertainty about how Europe will resolve its debt crisis have led investors to buy more securities, T reasury which are considered safe investments. As demand for T reasurys increase, the yield falls. To calculate average rates, Freddie Mac surveys lenders across the country on Monday through Wednesday of each week.
