Senators push for emergency food funding

ALBUQUERQUE (AP) — The number of New Mexican families worried about where their next meal will come from is growing as the economy sputters along and food banks try to cobble together what donations they can. But keeping shelves stocked may be more difficult this year as federal support for The Emergency Food Assistance Program is expected to be slashed by more than half. A bipartisan group of 21 U.S. senators — including

Tom Udall and Martin Heinrich, Democrats from New Mexico — is urging Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack to use existing funding to purchase more food that can then be funneled to the nation’s food banks. Last year, federal funding for the program totaled more than $300 million, which was used to buy commodities such as poultry and pork. With only $133 million set aside this year, there’s no way existing supplies will meet demand, the sen-

ators said in a letter sent this week to Vilsack. They said one in eight Americans receive emergency food assistance each year through the nation’s food banks. “With the millions of families across the country continuing to struggle to make ends meet in the wake of the recession, TEFAP commodities are critical,” they wrote. Officials estimate that more than 20 percent of the food moving through the nation’s network of food

banks is made up of commodities that are purchased as a result of the emergency food program. For Roadrunner Food Bank, the state’s largest food bank, the program delivered an extra 3 million pounds of high-protein food last year. “There’s always a gap between the amount of food that we have and the amount of food that we need, and that extra food really helps us close that gap,” said Melody Wattenbarger, Roadrunner’s presi-

dent and CEO.

The food bank distributes more than 100,000 pounds of food every day, and Wattenbarger said there has been no sign of demand letting up. The food bank estimates it reaches about 40,000 people a week, including senior citizens and children.

In northern New Mexico, The Food Depot has reported a 30 percent increase in demand for food assistance since the economic downturn.

Obama: Progress made Smith competes for MAOT on vet claims backlog

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — President Barack Obama assured disabled veterans Saturday that his administration is making progress on reducing a backlog of disability claims and said the number of requests for assistance has fallen by nearly one-fifth since peaking at more than 600,000 just a few months ago. In an address at the Disabled American Veterans’ convention in Orlando, Obama also announced a new national plan to guide mental health research, as well as commitments from 250 community colleges and universities to help veterans ear n college degrees or get the creden-

tials they need to find jobs. A top concern for veterans is the backlog of disability claims for compensation for illness and injury caused by military service. “After years of military service, you shouldn’t have to wait years for the benefits you’ve earned,” Obama said. The number of claims ballooned after Obama made it easier for Vietnam veterans who were exposed to the herbicide Agent Orange to get benefits. Access to benefits also was eased for sufferers of posttraumatic stress disorder See BACKLOG, Page A3



In a competition of interviewing and talent, Miss New Mexico’s Outstanding Teen was chosen from Chaves County and is now competing for the national title in Orlando.

She will be judged based on five components: fitness wear, evening gown, on stage questions, talent and an eight minute interview about a platform called “Leap Into Literacy,” a platform she chose concerning youth and illiteracy, a topic she feels passionate about and believes should be addressed in the community.

The Eagles’ “Hotel Califor nia” blared over loud speakers, filling Cahoon Park Saturday as parents ran after their children at the Big Brothers Big Sisters Children’s Festival. From food to various games and activities, the park was swarming with excited kids. One big attraction was a Roswell

Fire Department obstacle course. This was especially exciting for 9-year-old Taylor Gannuso.

Her eyes were intense as she ran through the course. She was looking for victory. She sprinted in a zigzag between cardboard fire hydrants and then through a giant piece of plastic tubing. Next it was up a ramp and then the challenge of pulling a weighted life-size dummy in

firefighter gear. Finally, the course ended with pulling a hose and spraying water at a metal flame. Gannuso did it all in record time. “They asked if I was faster than the boys, and I said ‘yes’ because I was on a baseball team,” Gannuso said, panting for air after finishing the course. “My favorite part was swinging See FESTIVAL, Page A3

Suspected US drone strike kills 2 SANAA, Yemen (AP) — A suspected U.S. drone strike killed two alleged al-Qaida militants in southern Yemen on Saturday, military officials said, making it the ninth such strike in just two weeks. The strike in Lahj province wounded two other militants, one of them seriously, the officials said. The four had been traveling in a car in the area of el-Askariya. The officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak to the media, said it was the first time a U.S. drone fired on this area of Lahj. In total, there have been nine suspected U.S. drone strikes in Yemen since July 27. The drone attacks in that two-week period have killed a total of 38 suspected militants in Yemen, which is the

The program is run by the Pentagon’s Joint Special Operations Command and the CIA, with the military flying its drones out of Djibouti, and the CIA out of a base in Saudi Arabia. An accelerated use of drone strikes in Yemen under President Barack Obama and a U.S.-backed offensive last year drove militants from territory they had seized a year earlier, during Yemen’s political turmoil amid the Arab Spring.

made their feat look easy, and to an extent maybe it is slightly easier after years of practice, said Taren Hill, instructor at Isalang Studios in Albuquerque. She has been belly dancing for 13 years, and said the average number of years for the performers is 10 years of experience. “It usually takes 10 years to be solid enough to do a show,” she said. The trick is a lot of practice. Belly dancing builds up muscles, flexibility and balance, Hill said. But developing the skills takes training and muscle memory. “Although muscles don’t have actual memory, I like that term because it’s the sensation of repeating an action so many times (…) and often enough that it becomes natural.” She compared it to a 2-year -old learning to walk. Walking is not natural at first, but after years of practice, it can be done as easily as breathing. This also is the case for Stephanie Kinney, who has been belly dancing since the 70s — when she was 20 years old. “I was 20 and now I’m 60. It’s a different life and a dif-

ferent body, so I use (belly dancing) to keep myself moving,” Kinney said. With her floor-length velvety red dress accented with coin dangles and purchased in Cairo, Kinney’s dance represents a very traditional style, one “an Egyptian 100 years ago would recognize,” Hill said.

But getting and keeping in shape, while having fun dancing, is only half of why these ladies belly dance. Hill said her other favorite part is when she finally gets a new concept or move.

“(I love) that moment when I am doing something I never thought I would do,” she said. When all the ladies are following her in a dance and everything clicks: that’s the moment.

“Whoosh, like flocking seagulls,” Hill said of a perfectly in-sink performance. “I become worth it in that moment, and I am a goddess.”

Peachtree keeps the spirit of ‘45 alive AMY VOGELSANG RECORD STAFF WRITER

Allow yourself to drift back in time for a minute. Imagine the Andrews Sisters’ number one hit “Rum and Coca-Cola” is playing in the background. Exaggerated shoulder pads are all the rage and when sounds from the radio announce the latest WWII news, every family member sits at attention, listening. It’s 1945. Or at least in the memories of some who can actually remember living and fighting through World War II and know the relief of it coming to an end it is. And in an ef fort to keep that character alive, Peachtree Village Retirement Community is hosting their annual “Keep the Spirit of ’45 Alive” event today. Starting with an official proclamation from Mayor Del Jurney, the event will be making it’s mark in the list of events going on nationwide on the second Sunday of every August to commemorate the end of

fighting in WWII. Although an annual event for Peachtree, Executive Director Mary Beth Lawrence wants this year to be different. “In the past we had it and it was huge. Tons of people tur ned up,” she said. “But nothing that happened that day was on the wall.” Meaning, it wasn’t really a scrapbook moment for the seniors who lived through the war: the veterans that the event was held to honor. The event’s motto is “Honoring the Legacy of the Greatest Generation,” and because it’s “dealing with the military and veterans, I don’t want to do it in a way that’s distasteful,” Lawrence said. This year, she plans to have the Spirit of ’45 open only for residents and their families instead of the general public. It’s for the veterans and their families, she said, so she wants them to be comfortable and able to hear everything and really feel the appreciation. Keeping it to family only

is also so children can have the time with grandparents, Lawrence said. “It’s good for our generation to learn to respect them and lear n from them,” she said. “When I think about the struggles we have today I can’t imagine the struggles they had. And a penny is still a penny to them (...) they make sure every dollar is spent well.” Lawrence could not offer enough praise about the seniors who are now 89 years of age and older, and their numbers are quickly decreasing. In just the last few months, Peachtree lost four of their residents who had fought in WWII. There are now only eight WWII veterans still living in that community: Larry Billng, Dave Button, Jack Jernigan, Earliss Gleaton, Lester Rushlow, Marvin Russell, Bob Ray and the only female, Dorothy Onstott. These individuals are honored with pictures up on a wall inside the entrance. And all military veterans are recognized

with a bronze star on their doors. For those veterans who have already passed, a memorial wall reminds all of those men and women who fought for America.

So as a continued way of honoring and remembering the sacrifices made, Spirit of ‘45 will take place at 1:30 p.m. today at Peachtree, complete with a wreath laying, Retrofit performing Battle Hymn of the Republic and Taps played by the American Legion Honor Guard. Lawrence said she would also be taking a picture of the veterans with the mayor to go in the library.

“Hopefully children will remember the sacrifices they made,” said Lawrence, who has enjoyed lear ning more about the generation and their time period. “Some have memory issues, but when they talk about WWII, they go right back there.”

The US empire provokes terrorism abroad A4 Sunday, August 11, 2013


Perhaps we’ll never know if intercepted chatter between al-Qaida leaders — which prompted the U.S. government to close dozens of diplomatic missions in the Muslim world and to issue a worldwide travel alert — was serious or not. But mischief shouldn’t be ruled out. Without cost or risk, Ayman alZawahiri, Osama bin Laden’s successor, and Nasser al-Wuhayshi, head of al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula (Yemen), can have a big laugh as they send American officials running around as though their hair were on fire. Why should they attempt to pull off some spectacular but risky action when they can disrupt things — closing embassies is no small deal — so easily? As a bonus, President Obama’s claim about alQaida’s degradation is revealed as an empty boast. (Yemeni officials claim that they foiled a plot. But



who knows?) The United States has been fighting the Taliban in Afghanistan for a dozen years, but not because the former rulers are a direct threat to the American people. Rather, the Bush and Obama administrations insisted, if the Taliban was not defeated, Afghanistan would again become a sanctuary for al-Qaida. Now we see (if we hadn’t already) that this was a mere rationalization for the projection of American power. al-Qaida doesn’t need Afghanistan. Bin Laden wasn’t found there. Al-Zawahiri presumably isn’t there. And the latest alleged unspecified threat comes from Yemen, 2,000 miles from Kabul. Doesn’t that expose the 12 years of American-inflicted death and destruction, not to mention the expenditure of hundreds of millions of dollars, as a monumental waste of life and treasure? If the Obama administration has any doubts about the seriousness of the chatter, it’s not displaying them in public. CNN reports that

the U.S. military has been readied for possible strikes against “potential al-Qaida targets if those behind the most recent terror threats against U.S. interests can be identified.” Moreover, the Globe and Mail reported earlier that “a suspected U.S. drone killed four alleged alQaida members in Yemen.” Yet we can assume that the administration’s conduct would be the same whether or not it took the chatter seriously. Let’s remember that the “war on terror” (George W. Bush’s label) is an industry from which many both inside and outside the government profit handsomely. Since the 9/11 attacks, the U.S. response has poured trillions of dollars into the governmentindustrial complex. Agencies have multiplied and grown, and bureaucrats have acquired new power and prestige. None would want to give any of it up. But if things were to become too quiet, those Americans who pay the bill might wonder if it’s all worth the great cost. Quietude breeds complacency.

So a little heightened alert, from the complex’s point of view, would be welcome. Of course, al-Qaida did attack the World Trade Center and the Pentagon in 2001, as well as various other targets outside the United States before and afterward. One of its so-called affiliates could certainly strike. Does that mean the U.S. government must maintain a global empire in order to eradicate the sources of anti-American terrorism? Absolutely not — quite the contrary. It is the global empire that provoked the al-Qaida attacks in the first place. Contrary to the popular notion that the organization struck U.S. “interests” out of the blue while our country minded its own business, the U.S. government for decades has supported violent regimes in the Middle East and North Africa: from Saudi Arabia’s corrupt and brutal monarchy, to the Egyptian military dictatorship, to Saddam Hussein’s Iraq, to Israel’s unconscionable occupation

of Palestine. American administrations, Republican and Democrat, have directly inflicted death and suffering on people in the Muslim world — through the 1990s economic sanctions on Iraq, for example. (Today’s sanctions on Iran now impose hardship on another group of Muslims.) Every time an al-Qaida official or operative has the chance, he points out that his hatred of America stems not from its “freedoms” but from this bloody record. Unrelenting U.S. drone attacks on Pakistan, Afghanistan, Yemen and Somalia, in which noncombatants are killed, don’t win friends. They recruit enemies bent on revenge. It follows therefore that the best way to dramatically reduce, if not eliminate, the threat of terrorism is to dramatically change U.S. foreign policy — from imperial intervention to strict nonintervention.

World Opinion

Samsung, Apple should end patent war

Will Samsung Electronics be able to turn the tables on Apple Inc. even after the U.S. government’s unexpected overruling of a sales ban on some older iPhone models in the American market? That’s the question being raised as Samsung continues its legal battle against Apple. The world’s No. 1 smartphone maker disclosed Monday that it has submitted an appeal against a June ruling by the U.S. International Trade Commission that Apple was not violating some of its patents. In June, the ITC did rule that Apple infringed upon one Samsung patent and issued an order prohibiting the American tech giant from bringing in some of its devices manufactured in China. But the commission dismissed Samsung’s claim that Apple also violated three other Samsung patents. Samsung has chosen to appeal the ITC decision to a U.S. federal court of appeals. If the court rules in favor of the Korean company, the ITC will have to go over the case. Samsung’s announcement came following the U.S. Trade Representative’s surprise decision last week to veto the ITC’s import ban on Apple products from China. The USTR said a product ban was inappropriate because the Samsung patent that Apple was accused of violating was a socalled FRAND patent. FRAND stands for “fair, reasonable and nondiscriminatory.” Samsung is seeking to bypass the USTR’s veto. The three other patents that it claims Apple has violated are non-FRAND patents. If the appeals court and then the ITC uphold Samsung’s claim, the USTR won’t be able to apply the logic it used to overrule the June ITC decision. Samsung’s more immediate concern is the imminent ITC ruling on Apple’s complaints filed against its Korean rival. If the commission rules in Apple’s favor, Samsung will be prohibited from selling some of its older products in the U.S. But this is unlikely to deal a serious blow to Samsung. The USTR’s intervention is widely seen as an unwarranted move aimed at protecting Apple. Yet it strongly suggests that it is time for the two tech powerhouses to stop their meaningless and highly costly patent war. It is increasingly clear that neither can emerge triumphant.

As if there were already not enough going on around the Mediterranean, Gibraltar has raised its head again. The latest round of cross-border tension appears to have started in a row last year over fishing rights, when Spanish fishermen were expelled from Gibraltar’s waters for using large nets. Gibraltar’s answer to Spanish dragnet fishing was to dump blocks of concrete into the sea to create an artificial reef. The issue of fishing rights reverts, as everything seems to in this dispute, to the Treaty of Utrecht of 1713. Spain does not recognize the existence of waters under Gibraltarian control, as it says those rights were not handed over when the colony was. There have been attempts — in the interim 300 years — to mediate the issue. Much of this pragmatism now appears to be in jeopardy. From the moment Mariano Rajoy came to power, Madrid has adopted a harder line on Gibraltar, insisting on talks with David Cameron without the involvement of the Gibraltar authorities. Criticizing the conciliatory stance taken toward the British outpost by the previous socialist regime, the current foreign minister, Josi Manuel Garcma-Margallo, appears intent on reversing everything his more able predecessors did. If other sovereignty disputes are anything to go by, little is to be gained by the reversion to the old politics of the dispute that the hawkish Spanish minister is suggesting. Sovereignty is a zero-sum game and is best sidestepped by the very agreements that Garcma-Margallo appears to be jeopardizing. Guest Editorial The Guardian, London

Floating conservatives discuss strategy STAVANGER, Norway — The several hundred conservatives on the National Review’s summer cruise, which I was asked to attend as a speaker, are united in what they don’t like about the Obama administration and congressional Democrats, but divided on the best strategy for winning the Senate in 2014 and the White House in 2016. On a panel titled “The State of the GOP and Conservatism,” Bob Costa, the magazine’s Washington bureau chief, asks if anyone agrees with Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, who thinks Republicans should be willing to shutdown


DEAR DOCTOR K: I have severe osteoarthritis in both knees. Should I have both knees replaced at one time, or separately? DEAR READER: Knee replacement is a major operation and requires a hospital stay. During the procedure, the surgeon removes damaged sections of your shin bone and thigh bone. He or she carefully cuts the bone to precisely fit the shape of the replacement implants, then attaches the artificial joint at the knee. (I’ve put an illustration of the procedure on my website, Knee replacement also requires a rigorous program of physical therapy and rehabilitation after surgery. It’s

just plain hard work. You need to be ready for that, as well. Should you consider having both knees replaced during a single surgery (simultaneous replacement)? If you are in good health, it’s worth talking to your doctor about replacing both knees at once. There are several benefits to simultaneous replacement.

image, as it did nearly 20 years ago when Republicans tried that approach. Former Florida Republican Congressman Allen West agrees. He thinks a better strategy is to “single out” portions of the ACA, deny funding them and make the president defend those parts that polls show are unpopular. West suggests highlighting how small businesses are already being harmed by the bill, as many refuse to hire new employees or cut the hours of current workers to avoid costs associated with the law’s health insurance requirements.

West, the only AfricanAmerican on the roster of speakers, thinks the best strategy for winning over at least some minority voters is to focus on school choice. He says Republicans should offer to vote for an increase in the debt limit in exchange for Democrats allowing poor and minority children to select the schools offering them the best education and a ticket out of poverty, instead of supporting teachers’ unions, which oppose charter schools. Ralph Reed, who heads the Faith and Freedom Coalition,

These include going under anesthesia only once and a shorter total hospitalization. You’ll also have only one — albeit, prolonged — rehabilitation. This will allow you to resume nor mal activities sooner than two separate surgeries. Replacing both knees at once is also a good option if both of your knee joints are in poor condition. That’s because during recovery from the replacement of one knee, you need the other knee to work harder. If the other knee hurts when you place weight on it, this will make it difficult for you during physical therapy and would also slow your recovery. To do well in rehabilitation after simultaneous

surgery, however, you need enough arm strength to cope while you can’t stand on either leg. Simultaneous replacement slightly increases the risk of blood clots or heart attack. However, such complications are rare. Still, simultaneous replacement is not for everyone. It is not recommended for patients with heart or lung disease or people over 80. If you have significant medical risks, you are probably better off having two separate operations. There are also benefits to separate operations months apart. These include a reduced risk of post-surgical

Being motivated to change your ‘Normal’ OPINION II

Roswell Daily Record

When you finish reading this you have a choice as to what you do next. It is up to you. Although I am fairly confident that what you will do after reading today’s column is the same thing you did after reading last week’s column, you still have unlimited options at your fingertips. I like the riddle about five birds on a wire. It goes like this, “There are five birds sitting on a wire. Two decide to fly away. How many are left?” The typical answer is “three.” The correct answer is “Five ... deciding to fly away is not flying away.” I like this riddle because I think that too often we read something or hear something that we think we need to apply to our life. We pause and ponder or even pause and make a decision, “In the future I will apply this concept in my life.” Then we go on with life and we slip into the old routine and nothing changes. Sound familiar? Different things motivate different people. I had a discussion years ago with a man who said that none of us has the power to change anyone else, all we can do is to provide the opportunity for others to change themselves. The more I think this one through, the more I agree. I am sharing this because the best any of us can do with anoth-

er is to put “change” on the table in front of the other person and then to encourage them to pick it up. It is kind of like parenting. You can’t force a teenager to take out the trash, but you can provide motivation in hope that he will make the decision to take out the trash. As we do this thing called life, each of us has a “Normal” in our world (I will capitalize this term for the purpose of today’s column). It may be a result of our upbringing or decisions we have made since that have created the Normal in our lives. But we each have a Normal. It is the core of who we are. It allows others to understand what motivates us and how we make decisions on the life we live. Normal provides stability in our lives. Stability is good. Hopefully Normal in your life causes good to occur to those around you and those you interact with day to

a social conservative nonprofit, agrees. He notes that by 2020 the number of white voters will have dwindled to fewer than 65 percent. By contrast, the National Review crowd, which is nearly 100 percent white, does not look like America. When it’s my tur n to comment, I quote columnist Thomas Sowell: “Much of the social history of the Wester n world over the past three decades has been a history of replacing what worked with what sounded good.” There is a history to liberal programs and whether they have worked, or not. Republicans and conservatives should tap into the country’s Puritan DNA, which detests waste. Every government agency should be required to justify not only its budget, but its existence. Republicans should cite publicly as examples people who have made it, either without government, or with help from gover nment, but who are now independent of government. Stop allowing Democrats to set the agenda. You can’t disprove a negative that Republicans care only for the rich. Demonstrate that real caring means showing the poor a way out of poverty, not sustaining them with a government check and that caring for the middle class means an improved economy, which would create

day. Hopefully Normal causes you to make a difference in the lives of others. Normal in a person’s life can cause the lives of multitudes of others to be impacted. It can influence the life of just one other, or it can cause a person to be introspective and to live as a hermit. I am not saying that the Normal that exists in your life is not a good Normal or even a great Nor mal. Your Nor mal may be exactly what it needs to be and if you die years from now with your current Normal, your mission in this one life you have may be fulfilled. So let’s throw the concept of “change” into Normal. What happens if a person or even an organization decides to change Normal? I like the phrase, “If you truly want to lear n about an organization, try to change it.” Change typically leads to defensiveness, to resistance, to anger. Change leads to statements like, “But that’s the way we have always done it before.” This may be an appropriate and healthy first response. But then the ultimate decision has to be made for any organization, “Regardless of what happened yesterday, how can we best be effective tomorrow?” You see change is mandatory, growth is optional. Some organizations

weather change, others cease to exist. Let me move this to a personal level. If you keep doing what you are doing, you will keep getting what you are getting. In other words, no change in your Normal equals no change in the results of your life. This isn’t necessarily bad, but something that should be reviewed and assessed. If any part of your world is not in order, you need to change your Normal. If any of the results you are getting from your life are not what you want to be getting, you need to change your Normal. You can do it. As a matter of fact, you are the only one that can do it. So what is it that motivates you to change your Normal? What causes change to occur in your life? What causes you to wake up a better person a month from now than you are today? What causes you to become more effective at what you do so you can touch and change others in the days and years ahead? Be truthful with yourself. The one person you really shouldn’t be lying to is yourself. Does your Normal need to be changed or is it right where it needs to be? My challenge to you today is to assess Normal in your life. Be honest with yourself. Look at yourself in the mirror. Ask others close to you to help assess you if


you need to. If you are at a 10 out of 10 in the life you live, don’t change a thing. If you are at a 9 or below, by all means change! I don’t know what change needs to occur in your world, but don’t be like the birds on the wire and decide to fly away without doing anything about it. Although change begins on the inside, application of change will be visible on the outside. Maybe having an accountability partner who calls you each week and asks if you are implementing the change you shared with her or him will cause the change to occur in your life. If your Normal is something less than a 10, don’t just put this column down and go on with life as if you had never read this. Take action. May your Normal be a 10 out of 10. Or if your Normal is something less, may you define your new Normal and be motivated to take action to get to the Normal that your life should be all about. Just a thought ...

If the shows air, he threatens not to allow those networks to provide questioners for the 2016 GOP presidential candidates’ debates. A better strategy would be to demand the right of Republicans to choose one panel member to question Democratic presidential candidates (I suggest a conservative journalist or radio talk show host) and allow the Democrats to do the same for the Republican debates. In the latter case, it would make little difference since most journalists are liberal and would ask predictable questions. The cruising conservatives haven’t yet coalesced around a presidential candidate (some think that a female governor should be on the ticket, especially if Clinton is the Democratic nominee), but there seems to be agreement to first get the policies right, talking less about ideology and statistics and focusing more on the concerns of average voters.

infection and less chance of needing a second surgery to fix problems. So having both knees replaced simultaneously surely is a reasonable option for many people. You and your doctor need to consider all of the issues mentioned above. Personally, I’m under 80; my arms are strong, and I have fun using crutches. So, if both of my knees had come to the end of the road and needed replace-

ment, and if I had no underlying heart or lung disease, I’d probably choose simultaneous replacement of both knees. Whether you have your knees replaced together or separately, you’ll need to actively participate in a rehabilitation program. This will be a major factor in the success of your implant.

Support for students appreciated

Dear Editor: We want to express our gratitude to our sponsors for working with our veterinary assistant students this school year. Without your support, our students would not have thrived in their education. We appreciate your willingness to give your time, knowledge and effort to contribute to their on-the-job training. The students have learned how to work with horses, sheep and goats, dogs, cats and pocket pets. Because of your dedication, our students have learned the skills needed to become employable in the career field. Thank you to Hunter Creek Farms, Paint by Numbers, Paws, Claws, and Hooves, Roswell Animal Control, Roswell Humane Society, Roswell Zoo, Jacque’s Pet Spa and Service, Burson Club Lambs, and our local AWA spay and neuter clinic. I would also like to thank College Garden Animal Hospital and Paul’s Vet Supply for providing the supplies needed for our classroom and keeping the classroom pets healthy.

Life’s complexity points to a Creator

Dear Editor: I see from the Burleson letter of June 4 that he will not stop in his quest to convince us that evolution is a fact. He uses the similarities between the human arm, the wing of a bat and the forelimb of a dolphin to show that there is evidence of evolution, saying they all came from a common ancestor. Those who believe in creation look at the evidence and say they are similar because they have the same designer. So we have come to an impasse. We have the same evidence but use it to prove opposite theories. In the debate of evolution and creation, quite often both sides know certain facts but interpret them differently. There are neverending differences between equally highly respected authorities in every field. In the New Yorker article “The Truth Wears Off” by Jonah Lehrrer he points out the dangers of scientific practice. He says that even after ideas or theories have been shown to be shaky, they are still cited in textbooks. Why? “Because these ideas seem true. Because they make sense. Because we can’t bear to let them go.” He concludes the article by saying “the decline effect is troubling because it reminds us how difficult it is to prove anything. We like to pretend that our experiments define the truth for us. But that’s often not the case. Just because an idea is true doesn’t mean it can be proved. And just because an idea can be proved doesn’t mean it’s true. When the experiments are done, we still have to choose what to believe.” Today scientists are fascinated by the behavior and the design of certain animals and research them to help them develop better technology or better ways to treat human ailments. A few examples that researchers are studying: The Arctic ground squirrel’s brain to help them understand the human brain’s potential, possibly learning how to reverse the damage to the brain from diseases such as Alzheimer’s. The regenerating lens of the newt to help them understand how to regenerate damaged tissue in humans. The woodpecker’s shock-absorbing head to help

Horse slaughter

Dear Editor: Dalton Bell’s letter in today’s paper, Aug. 13, hits home, makes sense and I applaud him for expressing his opinion. I fail to see what the fuss is about. The feral horse population is growing at an enormous rate and someone has a better idea to stem that growth rather than to let the horses die miserable deaths (note Dalton’s letter.) The local business owner who wants to slaughter horses and market the meat to Mexico and other countries is painted as a heartless pariah with no scruples — by folks who have no idea of the circumstances, of horses or alternative solutions. On the other hand, no one says anything about where their dinner table meats come from or protests how it gets there. Those standard food items come to them slaughtered and packaged by similar operations to the one Valley Meats wants to create. Somehow these folks see no parallels. Why? A mix of arrogance and ignorance? Do we really not know what happens before we get our lamb chops, chicken fried steak, ham or pork chop, fried chicken? Every year throughout the area, ranchers and farmers round up the stock they have raised that year and off they go to market. That is what they were raised for. Every year on every farm and ranch in our area someone in the family raises dogie lambs and dogie calves. And every fall those family pets are shipped off with the rest of the herd for slaughter. Every year we have a 4-H Fair here in Roswell and youngsters from our part of New Mexico bring their animals to town to show them off and are given prizes for the best of each lot. Then they are sold and where do you think they go from there? They cease to be pets and if they do not become breeding stock they head for the sale barn, there to be sold to slaughter houses and feed lots to ready them for their ultimate destination, our dinner table. Just such an exposition has just concluded out at the fair grounds. So, where’s the difference? And while on the subject, do Robert Redford and Bill Richardson know enough about the subject to be taken seriously? However, their ilk have had a decided effect on ranching and agriculture in general. They are of that group who jumped on the band wagon and convinced Congress that coyotes were in danger and needed protection. They won, and in essence killed sheep ranching. Now most of our sheep meat comes from afar. They are IMHO nothing but headline grabbers with an eye for a cause that will get them ink. Sincerely Dan Gage Roswell

Assistance for races appreciated

Dear Editor: I wish to take this opportunity to express our gratitude to Lovelace Regional Hospital and all of the 610 runners and walkers who signed up for the 19th annual Alien Chase 10k and 5k held on July 6. We were able to make a donation to the Roswell Humane Society in the amount of $3,000 to assist them with their mission. Additional thanks to Roswell Lodgers Tax Board, Peppers and Pecos Flavors. The staff at the Convention (not Civic) Center was outstanding, as was our partnership with MainStreet Roswell and their oversight of the entire UFO festival. We had a large contingent from Norway (sans reindeer), as well as folks from Canada, Japan and Belgium. The states of Texas, Illinois, Arizona, Colorado, Michigan, Wisconsin, Washington, Oregon, Georgia, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Florida, Kentucky, Virginia, Indiana, Hawaii, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Iowa, California and the Republic of Boulder were represented by intrepid early birds who traversed the Spring River Corridor in what turned out to be a perfect morning for the races. Thanks to the Pecos Valley Amateur Radio Club and the Mounted Patrol for their continued support of our events and providing safety and communication along the course. Thanks to The Humane Society for providing staff for the 10k water station and to James Edwards and Sally Pretti for the 5k water station. Kudos also to the Runners Club elves who are there early and stay late to keep the race on track: Jim Humphreys, Steve Lamontine, Dwain Brown, Mandy Owens, Vern Dyer; and to the Roswell Recreation and Parks Department for their attention to the course and working the finish line and the results tabulation. (truth be told, just two more finishers and Laurie would have gone over the edge) We also recently donated proceeds from the Zoo Race held in May to the Spring River Zoo in the amount of $2,000. Elaine Mayfield and her fine staff are to be thanked for their tireless work in maintaining the zoo grounds and the resident population, most of whom were

Furyk leads heading into final round of PGA Sunday, August 11, 2013 Phone: 575-622-7710, ext. 304


Roswell Daily Record


PITTSFORD, N.Y. (AP) — Oak Hill finally had enough elements for a strong test Saturday in the PGA Championship, and Jim Furyk was up for the fight. Grinding to the end in swirling wind that cast doubt on so many shots, Furyk closed with two big putts — one for birdie to regain the lead, one for par to keep it — that gave him a 2-under 68 and a one-shot lead over Jason Dufner going into the final round. Coming off an 18-foot birdie putt on the 17th, Furyk hit his 3-wood so badly on the 472-yard closing hole that he couldn’t have reached the green even if he had been in the fairway. He hit a solid shot over the bunkers and back into the fairway, watched his third shot spin off the green onto the fringe, and he gave an emphatic fist pump when his 15foot par putt curled in the left side of the cup for par. “Obviously, I made a bad swing,” Furyk said. “This week, I haven’t let too much bother me. It was a nice way to finish the day.” Sunday doesn’t figure to be any easier — not the course, and not with the guys chasing him. Dufner thought he had missed another putt on the 18th hole until gravity pulled the ball into the side of the cup for a par that gave him a 71. Sure, it was eight shots worse than his record-tying 63 on a soft course Friday, but at least he got into the final group at the PGA Championship for the second time in three years. Henrik Stenson, a runner-up at the British Open three weeks ago, dropped only one shot over the last 16 holes and ran in a pair of 12-foot birdie putts for a 69 and was two shots behind. Sweden’s odds of winning a major have never been this high. Stenson will play in the penultimate group with Jonas Blixt, who had a 66.

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Although the Sun Belt Conference is in flux right now, all four of the league’s bowl teams from last season are back. Two of them are cofavorites to win the league — according to a preseason coaches’ poll — and happen to be in-state rivals: Louisiana-Lafayette and Louisiana-Monroe. The other two are two-time defending league champion Arkansas State and Wester n Kentucky, which became the landing spot for

Bobby Petrino’s coaching comeback after the former Arkansas coach spent a season away from football This should be Petrino’s only season in the Sun Belt because WKU jumps to Conference USA next season. He hopes to have the Hilltoppers on top of the league and in a secondstraight bowl, but the former Louisville and Atlanta Falcons coach doesn’t expect it to be easy, and noted how far the oncefledgling mid-major league has come in its 13 years. “When you look back on the success that the Sun Belt had last year, it just speaks for itself,” Petrino said. “You had four teams go to bowl games and some really major upsets. ... It’s going to be very, very competitive.” Petrino was referring to

HOUSTON (AP) — The Texas Rangers talked before their game Saturday about how they didn’t need new right fielder Alex Rios to be their savior as he takes over for suspended slugger Nelson Cruz. Rios ended saving his new team anyway in his debut. Rios tied the game with an RBI triple in the eighth inning and scored the go-ahead run to help the Rangers to a 5-4 comeback victory over the Houston Astros. “I came here to try to contribute in any way possible and take advantage of everything that I’m given,” said Rios, who fills the hole left when Cruz was suspended for 50 games in the Biogenesis investigation. “Tonight was a good game. We came up with some big hits.” One of the biggest was a two-run homer by Elvis Andrus as the Rangers extended their winning streak to a seasonhigh six games. Rios, who was acquired from the Chicago White Sox on Friday, tripled off reliever Lucas Harrell (5-13) in the eighth inning to tie it after a double by A.J. Pierzynski. Rios then slid feet first into home on a ball hit by Mitch Moreland, scoring when catcher Jason Castro dropped the ball in the collision for an error to put Texas up 5-4. “We had a contact play on and he ran down the line like a train,” manager Ron Washington said. “Castro caught that ball and when he came around he knocked it out of his glove

how about a Heisman Trophy? That may seem far fetched, but Northern Illinois quarterback Jordan Lynch finished seventh in the voting last season, and he’s back to try to lead the Huskies to another banner year. Northern Illinois played in the Orange Bowl on Jan. 1, and although the Huskies were beaten soundly, the MAC was celebrating again a short while later when Central Michigan offensive lineman Eric Fisher was the first pick in the draft. “I think the conference is on the rise, and a lot of great things are happening,” L ynch said. “The

RB hopes to keep MAC hoping to build on banner season Denver’s undrafted streak going

DENVER (AP) — An undrafted college free agent has made Denver’s Week 1 roster in each of the last nine seasons. C.J. Anderson aims to keep that streak going. The former University of California running back has been the untold story of the Broncos’ training camp, toiling as he has behind second-round draft pick Montee Ball, secondyear speedster Ronnie Hillman and former first-rounder Knowshon Moreno in Denver’s dynamic backfield. Nobody’s talking about him thumping that trio anytime soon, but he’s certainly put himself into the mix for making the 53-man roster after rushing for a game-high 69 yards on 15 carries Thursday night in Denver’s 10-6 preseason win at San Francisco. Although Anderson isn’t as assignment-sound or as consistent as the three backs ahead of him on the depth chart, Jacob Hester, Lance Ball and Jeremiah Johnson could find themselves the victims of Anderson’s solid summer if he has See STREAK, Page B5

Ellsbury leads Red Sox to 5-3 win over Royals

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Jacoby Ellsbury beat the Kansas City Royals with his bat and glove. Ellsbury matched a career high with four hits and drove in a pair of runs to lead the Boston Red Sox to a 5-3 win over the Kansas City Royals on Saturday night. Ellsbury had RBI-doubles in the fourth and sixth innings and also stole his major league-leading 42nd base. It was his 10th career four-hit game and second this season. “I’m seeing the ball and driving it, putting some good swings on the ball,” Ellsbury said. “I feel like I’ve been swinging the bat well and all you can do is get hard contact. “Fortunately tonight they fell in. I’ve always been a big believer that it’s just a matter of time. I’ve put a lot of work into it, into hitting and making good contact.” The Red Sox lead the American League with 71 victories, while the Royals lost for just the third time in 18 games. “It was definitely a nice win for us,” Ellsbury said. “Tonight, all three games really, it’s been a dogfight. They’re playing well and we’re playing well. We’ll come out and try to split the series tomorrow.” Ellsbury also ran down Miguel Tejada’s

sharp liner to end the first with the bases loaded and Jarrod Dyson’s sinking line drive in the eighth with a runner on second. “There’s a lot of ground to cover,” Ellsbury said. “If you hit the ball in the air here you have a chance to track it down.” Ellsbury saved runs and drove in runs. “On both sides of the ball excellent, great defensive play in the outfield this whole series,” Royals manager Ned Yost said. “He’s just a tough, tough out.” The Red Sox scored four runs in the fourth. Will Middlebrooks, who was just recalled from Triple-A Pawtucket, fueled the rally with a two-run single. Stephen Drew drove in a run with a double, extending his hitting streak to a season-best 11 games. The Royals answered with a three-run fifth. Eric Hosmer and Billy Butler drilled back-to-back RBI doubles and Miguel Tejada hit a two-out single. Tejada, 39, who has started 22 games at second base, left with tightness in his right calf while diving for Carp’s single in the seventh and was replaced by Elliot Johnson. “We’re evaluating it now,” Yost said. Red Sox starter Felix Doubront failed to get an out in the fifth, facing four batters before being replaced by Brandon Workman. Doubront gave up three runs on six hits and four walks. Royals right-hander Jeremy Guthrie (128), who had won his previous four starts, threw a season-high 123 pitches in seven innings, allowing five runs on 10 hits and a walk. Ellsbury has a career .435 average against Guthrie. “With his speed and his ability to put wood on the ball, he’s a tough hitter,” Guthrie said. “He’s always been very tough for me and I didn’t execute very well.” Ellsbury drove in Middlebrooks with a sixth-inning double for the final run off Guthrie. “He squared up some balls tonight and gave me a chance to get around the bases,” Middlebrooks said.

moved Green to third before Calhoun’s fly made it 3-1. Michael Bourn’s RBI single in the sixth cut the lead to one, but the Indians’ defense imploded in the eighth. Errors by shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera and second baseman Jason Kipnis, and a wild pitch by Bryan Shaw helped the Angels score four times. Shuck hit a sacrifice fly for his second RBI of the game, while Chris Nelson drove in a run with a single. Erik Aybar added an RBI fielder’s choice and another run scored on Kipnis’ wild throw home. Trout was 0 for 4 with three strikeouts and had an RBI fielder’s choice in the third. Wilson dodged trouble often enough before finally being chased in the sixth. Singles by Yan Gomes and Drew Stubbs put runners at first and second with one out. Bourn’s single scored Gomes, moved Stubbs to third and ended the night for Wilson, who threw 117 pitches. “I felt I pitched pretty well,” Wilson said. “It was a battle to get ahead of guys. There’s no other way to characterize it.” Michael Kohn retired Swisher on a popup and Buddy Boshers, making his major league debut, struck out Kipnis. Wilson is 3-1 with a 1.95 ERA in five outings against Cleveland since 2010. He’s also held opponents to two homers over his last 12 outings. Stubbs’ infield hit scored a run for the Indians in the second. Trout hit into a fielder’s choice with the bases loaded in the third, tying the game. Iannetta reached base four times on a single and three walks. Ernesto Frieri, who has been removed from the closer’s role, pitched the ninth. He came into the game having allowed 12 earned runs over 4 2-3 innings in his last seven appearances.

CLEVELAND (AP) — C.J. Wilson might not have been at his best, though he was good enough for the Los Angeles Angels to gain another victory. Wilson pitched 5 1-3 innings and won his fourth consecutive decision as the Angels beat Cleveland 7-2 on Saturday night, sending the Indians to their sixth straight loss. Asked to describe his outing, in which he allowed two runs despite giving up seven hits, walking four and hitting a batter, Wilson used the word “arduous.” Angels manager Mike Scioscia agreed with his pitcher. “It was a tough night for C.J.,” he said. “Grind is the right word, but he got some key outs with guys in scoring position. They had baserunners the whole night, it seemed. He had to work really hard.” Wilson (12-6) recorded his eighth win in his last 11 decisions. The left-hander hasn’t lost since July 5. Ubaldo Jimenez (8-7) allowed three runs in 6 1-3 innings for the reeling Indians, who committed a season-high four errors and trail Detroit by eight games in the American League Central. Cleveland began its sevengame homestand three games out of first, but was swept in four games by the Tigers and has dropped the first two to the Angels, who came into town with a four-game losing streak. “This is a game where how you handle frustration goes so far in how your season is defined, and we’re going to find out,” Indians manager Terry Francona said. Mike Trout drew an eighth-inning walk and has reached base in 40 consecutive games. The Angels didn’t exactly knock the cover off the ball. Three of their runs scored on sacrifice flies, two others came on an RBI fielder’s choice and another scored on a throwing error. “In a game where we didn’t really drive the ball, we did a really good job of situational hitting,” Scioscia said. “Every chance we had to either get a runner over or score him, we pretty much did so.” The Angels, who scored five times in the first inning in Friday’s win, saw that momentum carry over. Sacrifice flies by J.B. Shuck and Kole Calhoun broke a 1-all tie in a rally that was aided by Jimenez’s throwing error. After Chris Iannetta drew a leadoff walk, Grant Green bunted to the left of the mound. Instead of letting third baseman Mike Aviles make the play, Jimenez fielded the ball and uncorked a wild heave that was several feet over the head of first baseman Nick Swisher. The ball landed on the track well beyond the bag and bounced into the stands, allowing the runners to take second and third. Schuck’s fly ball scored Iannetta and

Navarro lifts Cubs to 6-5 win over Cardinals

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Dioner Navarro made it look simple Saturday night. The Chicago catcher, picking up a bat for the first time in three days, lashed a runscoring double in the eighth inning to break a tie and cap a three-run rally that helped the Cubs beat the St. Louis Cardinals 6-5. The win gave the Cubs, who won the opener 3-0 on Friday, a series win in St. Louis for the first time in nearly three years. Matt Holliday homered twice for St. Louis, which lost its fourth in a row. Chicago won for the third time in four games. Navarro arrived in St. Louis early in the afternoon after having a battery of tests following a scary home-plate collision with Philadelphia’s Chase Utley on Wednesday night. Navarro was carted off the field with what was thought to be a broken ankle. But X-rays and an MRI showed no damage, so Navarro rejoined his team in time for Saturday’s contest. After speaking with manager Dale Sveum, it was determined that Navarro could be used, “only in a gamewinning situation,” according to the catcher. Navarro didn’t take batting practice Saturday and was unable to sharpen his stroke. Yet as a pinch hitter in the eighth, he slapped an offering from reliever Trevor Rosenthal into the gap to break a 4-4 tie. “I knew he was going to throw me a fastball,” Navarro said. “He didn’t want to go to 2-1 (in the count). I put a good swing on it and was fortunate enough to hit it in the gap.” Navarro’s ability to come off the bench and drive a 98 mph pitch impressed his teammates, especially infielder Darwin Barney, who tied the game with a two-run double in the eighth. “The guy is unbelievable,” Barney said. “He gets here today, he hasn’t taken a swing. To turn on 98 after having not seen a pitch in three days, that’s pretty unbelievable,” Navarro convinced Sveum that he was good to go before the game. “We tested to find out if he was even ready to play,” Sveum said. “You don’t worry about him because he’s so good off the bench.” Navarro is 7 for 20 (.350) as a pinch hitter this season. The Cubs trailed 4-2 entering the eighth, but tied it 4-4 on Barney’s two-out, two-run double off Rosenthal (1-3). Navarro followed with his fifth pinch-hit RBI of the season to give Chicago a 5-4 lead. Blake Parker (1-1) picked up the victory for the Cubs, who last won a series in St. Louis on Sept. 13-15, 2010. Chicago has captured the first two games of this set despite struggling since mid-July. Barney says the Cardinals simply bring out the best in his club. “You hate to say it, but you get up more for games like this,” Barney said. “They’re in the hunt, and we’re playing spoilers once again. Hopefully, we can keep doing it.” Welington Castillo homered in the second to give Chicago to a 1-0 lead. Castillo and Nate Schierholtz drew leadoff walks to start the eighth. Rosenthal struck out the next two batters before Barney hit his 20th double of the season. Kevin Gregg picked up his 25th save in 29 opportunities despite giving up Holliday’s 15th homer of the season, a solo shot with one out in the ninth. Gregg retired the final two batters on ground outs. Schierholtz added a run-scoring single in the ninth. Castillo also had a sacrifice fly in the fifth that trimmed the deficit to 3-2.


Raiders see positives from all 3 QBs

NAPA, Calif. (AP) — Quarterbacks Matt Flynn and Terrelle Pryor basically performed as advertised in the exhibition opener for the Oakland Raiders. Flynn was the steady by unspectacular game manager who tries to stay on schedule as he moves the offense methodically down the field. Pryor was a somewhat predictable mix of dazzling and frustrating, mixing big plays with a boneheaded decision that led to a turnover. The surprise of the quarterback group might have been undrafted rookie from Penn State Matt McGloin, who showed why he has passed fourth-round pick Tyler Wilson for third string on the depth chart when he produced Oakland’s only touchdown in the 19-17 win over Dallas on Friday

Roswell Daily Record night. “I think the thing that you see from Matt is he is composed,” coach Dennis Allen said Saturday. “He does have poise in the pocket and he doesn’t get rattled. For a guy who is an undrafted free agent, to handle himself the way he’s handled himself in pressure situations has been a nice surprise.” McGloin was 4 for 7 for 78 yards in the third quarter, completing two long pass to fellow rookie Brice Butler, including a wellplaced 30-yard touchdown. McGloin went from a walk-on at Penn State to an NFL prospect after throwing for 3,271 yards and 24 touchdowns last season under coach Bill O’Brien. He joined the Raiders as an undrafted free agent in May and recently passed the more heralded Wilson the depth chart as he tries to earn a roster spot. “He did great,” Flynn said. “He’s had a great camp so far and it’s fun to watch those guys that you’ve been helping day in, day out go out there and perform well.” All of Oakland’s top three quarterbacks had their good moments in the win. Flynn responded from a sack fumble after a blown protection on the opening drive to convert to third downs through the air on a field-goal drive late in the first quarter. Flynn finished 4 for 5 for 37 yards. “When you look at Matt Flynn you’re not going to be wowed because he’s the biggest, strongest, fastest, best arm,” Allen said. “But that’s not what being a great quarterback in this league is all about. Being a great quarterback in this league is more about the mental part of the game than it is the physical part of the game. It’s timing, it’s decision-making, it’s accuracy. Those are some of the things that I see him being able to do.” That was Pryor’s biggest problem. An otherwise impressive night was overshadowed by one ill-fated decision late in the first half. After moving the Raiders down the field with ease, Pryor rolled out on a third-and-4 from the 6. He had room to run on the outside for a first down or possibly a touchdown but decided instead to try to throw the ball across his body to Butler in the middle of the end zone. J.J. Wilcox stepped in front of the pass and intercepted it and Pryor immediately knew he made a bad decision. “I looked at the pictures and I could have ran it easy,” Pryor said. “That was just me being greedy. Maybe in the back of my mind I was saying, ‘Hey, I want to throw a touchdown pass. People think I can’t.’ I have to understand the abilities I have and use them to perfection.” Pryor responded by leading the Raiders to a field-goal on an impressive two-minute drill at the end of the half, even throwing two balls away instead of forcing it into coverage as he learned his lesson. Even though Flynn is on track to be the starter at quarterback this season, the Raiders plan to use Pryor at times as well. He showed why with two long runs on readoption plays, a scramble that led to a completion and as a decoy on Rashad Jennings’ 16-yard run. Pryor could be used in a special red zone and short-yardage package or come in for a series or two at a time as the Raiders try to capitalize on his athleticism.

49ers intent on sending Candlestick out in style

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — As far as 49ers receiver Kyle Williams is concerned, there’s only one way for his team to bid farewell to Candlestick Park this season. “You’ve got go out right. You’ve got to win,” Williams said Saturday after the team’s annual Fan Fest. “There’s been so many great teams - not just good - great teams, dynasties that have been through here. You’ve got to make sure you honor that.” The 49ers are considered an early favorite to return to the Super Bowl, and capturing the franchise’s sixth Lombardi Trophy would add the ultimate final chapter to Candlestick’s storied history. Next season, the 49ers move into brand new Levi’s Stadium, located next to the team’s training complex in nearby Santa Clara. It will be pristine, hip and high-tech everything that Candlestick isn’t. The stadium opened in 1960 for the San Francisco Giants baseball team, and the 49ers moved there from Kezar Stadium in 1971. The facilities are outdated and the fan experience includes long bathroom lines and traffic jams that make leaving games a headache. But Candlestick was the center of the NFL in the 1980s, when the 49ers won four Super Bowls in a nine-year span. To longtime fans, there’s a bare-bones charm to the ‘Stick that will be missing in 2014. Twins Stan and Tony Montalbo have owned season tickets since the team arrived from Kezar. From their lower-reserve seats in Section 4, they watched Dwight Clark make “The Catch” in the 1981 NFC championship game against Dallas that sent the Niners to their first Super Bowl. “Sad, not happy,” Stan Montalbo said of his feelings about the team leaving. “I’m looking forward to the new (stadium). The accommodations will be better. But it’s sad leaving the old championship place. Five Super Bowl rings here, you know?” It’s all a matter of perspective. Phong Nguyen, a 34-year-old fan who lives in San Jose, can’t wait for the team to move into its new stadium. “I have a lot of memories here, but it’s time to get a new stadium that’s a lot nicer to watch a game in,” said Nguyen, who’s been attending games at Candlestick since he was a baby. “It’s inconvenient. It’s tough to get into the bathrooms, and you’re going to the bathroom in a trough. Even getting out of the stadium after a game is terrible.” There’s another reason Nguyen, who has season tickets for Levi’s Stadium, eagerly awaits the move. He works at Cisco Systems, just a stone’s throw from the new venue. “For weekday games, I can just walk right down the street.” The 49ers held their only public practice of training camp during Saturday’s Fan Fest at Candlestick, with a crowd of 10,536 on 575-622-0690

hand. The sun was shining, but the howling wind - a Candlestick trademark - made fielding punts as tricky as ever. Williams, in his fifth season with the 49ers, said the subpar facilities have never dominated his thoughts. “It’s home to me, and I’m sure it’s home to every 49er fan that’s out there,” Williams said. “I don’t’ know about the state-of-the-art stuff. I’m sure the new stadium will be awesome. But right now, this is home, and we’re going to make sure and send it out the right way.”

Falcons’ running game has room to improve Roswell Daily Record

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) — The Atlanta Falcons signed running back Steven Jackson to a three-year, $12 million contract to firm up a soft spot in their offense. After their preseason opener, questions remain about the running game. Jackson, who was a free agent after rushing for at least 1,000 yards in eight consecutive seasons with the Rams, had five carries for 8 yards in a 34-10 loss to the Bengals on Thursday. The Falcons, who ranked 29th in the NFL in rushing last season (87.3 yards per game), had just 92 yards rushing overall. That may have had more to do with Atlanta’s offensive line than Jackson. He and the Falcons’ top skill position players did not play much in the game. Center Peter Konz, a second-year pro replacing retired 13-year veteran Todd McClure, played the first 14 snaps. Tackles Lamar Holmes and R yan Schraeder played much more just days after projected right tackle starter Michael Johnson suffered a seasonending leg injury. Left guard Justin Blalock, a sevenyear veteran, said it wouldn’t be right

to expect Atlanta’s new line combination to be immediately comfortable. Konz finished last season at right guard. “We kind of leaned on him for a lot of things,” Blalock said of McClure. “It was a little weird being out there without him, but the more we practice the more this group bonds.” Another factor is that the Bengals have one of the top defensive lines in the NFL with Geno Atkins, Robert Geathers and Domata Peko. The Falcons’ first possession stalled in the red zone. On third-and-2 from the Cincinnati 16, Atkins dropped Jackson for a 3-yard loss to force a Matt Bryant field goal. The Falcons released right tackle Tyson Clabo in the offseason in a costcutting move, and Johnson was expected to start there. Last week, he dislocated his left ankle and fractured his fibula. Holmes, a third-round draft choice out of Southern Mississippi last year, played just seven snaps in a rookie season derailed by a foot injury. He started and played 39 snaps at right tackle against Cincinnati.

Graham Harrell needs to rebound for Packers

Schraeder, an undrafted rookie out of Division II Valdosta State, played 34 snaps at right tackle and backing up Sam Baker on the left. Another undrafted rookie tackle, Alex Savoie of McNeese State, was in for 10 plays. “When I first got in there I wasn’t really settled in. I was kind of nervous, just really excited for the first snap,” Holmes said. “After the first drive, I started getting comfortable, settling in, talking to my teammates.” On Friday, the Falcons signed tackle Jeff Nady, who was cut by the Jaguars after being signed as an undrafted rookie out of Nevada. “He’s a guy who has a little bit of experience in Jacksonville, an offensive lineman that we’re going to work at the right tackle position,” Falcons coach Mike Smith said. Blalock believes the line will gel. “Communication I think will be the slowest thing to come along because there are a lot of calls that have to be made, things that have to be seen,” he said. “Sometimes, we might have to help out or make some extra calls, but nothing dramatic.”

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — Graham Harrell will have to play better than he did Friday night if he’s going to hold off Vince Young and B.J. Coleman for Green Bay’s No. 2 quarterback job behind star Aaron Rodgers. Harrell also will have to play better to avoid being booed, as he was by a portion of the Lambeau Field-record crowd of 73,738 during the Packers’ 17-0 exhibition loss to the Arizona Cardinals. “Oh, yeah,” Harrell said. “You always hear those. But that’s part of the game.” Harrell completed 12 of 19 for 76 yards with two sacks, an interception and a 49.5 rating against. He also lost a fumble on one of the sacks, by John Abraham, and was at fault on the other, by Tyrann Mathieu, when he missed the pre-snap protection adjustment and then couldn’t high-step away from the diving Honey Badger on the 12-yard loss. “Graham has to play better, and it’s tough,” Packers coach Mike McCarthy said Saturday, after breaking down the Packers’ first scoreless exhibition game since a 9-0, rain-shortened loss to Kansas City in the 2003 Pro Football Hall of Fame Game. “Playing quarterback in the preseason, it’s never clean, and it’s been like that as long as I’ve been in this league. You’re going to have things go wrong. You’re going to have guys run the route too deep and your guy who doesn’t get off the press and they run into each other. Then you have to go on to the next receiver. It’s those types of things — where you have to play through odd looks, play through situations that someone gets beat and throw the ball away, things like that. “It’s a challenge for any of those guys that get in there at that time because you’ve got some guys playing in their first NFL game, you’ve got some guys playing right tackle that haven’t even practiced there. That’s the way the preseason goes. For quarterbacks particularly, you have to play above that.”

Cruz in midseason form, Giants top Steelers 18-13 P I T T SB U R GH ( A P) — Victor Cruz strolled into the end zone and thought for a moment about putting on his salsa dancing shoes. Two unenthusiastic steps later, he chucked the idea. “I didn’t want to give it the full gamut,” Cruz said. “It’s the preseason.” Besides, after missing organized team activities and minicamp during a contract dispute, the New York Giants’ wide receiver is a little rusty on the celebration thing. The catching touchdown passes from Eli Manning thing, however, remains just fine. Cruz pulled in a r a in b o w f r o m t h e Ne w York quarterback and ran by the Pittsburgh secondary for a 57-yard score in an 18-13 victory over the S t e el er s o n S a t u r da y night. Cruz lined up in the slot then sprinted past William

Gay and Troy Polamalu as Manning lofted a perfect strike that seemed to put any lingering resentment over his holdout to rest. “ Yo u k i n d o f f ee l l i k e you’re still in the swing of it, you still have your footing, you still have what it takes to be successful in this offense,” Cruz said. “I think (Eli) read my body perfectly and put the ball where it needed to be. It felt good to be in midseason form so early on.” Manning completed 2 of 5 passes for 73 yards but produced scores in both series he was on the field. “Good and bad,” Manning said. “Hit a couple nice things. Sometimes that first game you just have to get back to getting u s ed to k no w i n g t h e defense can hit you now.” N ot t h at P i tt s b urg h ’s starters came close on the game’s biggest play. Manning had plenty of time to

find Cruz, taking only a small nudge from outside linebacker LaMarr Woodley after the ball was in flight. Playing behind a reconst i tu t ed o f f en s iv e l i ne, Pittsburgh quarterback Ben Roethlisberger wasn’t quite so fortunate. He was sacked once and knocked d ow n a c ou p le of t im e s during his two series of work. Roethlisberger completed 4 of 8 passes for 36 yards, leading the Steelers to a field goal on his second possession. “I thought we came out and ran the ball well,” he said. “We want to establish an identity early of r u n n in g t h e b all an d I think we did a good job of that.” LaRod Stephens-Howling, returning to the town w he r e he wa s a s tar in c ol leg e, r u s he d f o r 4 0 yards on seven carries for the Steelers.

Isaac R ed man an d Jonathan Dwyer, who are fighting Bell for the starting spot, didn’t exactly separate themselves from t h e f i eld . R e dm an r a n t wi ce for seven ya r d s while Dwyer had 15 yards on six carries. Tomlin’s bigger concern were the wave of unusual mistakes in a game the fel t lik e an ex ten de d scrimmage that happened to have over 50,000 people in attendance. Pittsbu rgh ’ s s pec ial t ea ms gave up a blocked punt and a botched handoff in the end zone in the secon d h al f t ur n ed i nt o a safety. The Steelers also committed seven penalties

— compared to just three for New York — and generated little after Roethlisberger when to the sideline to trade his helmet for a baseball cap. “Just the Steelers beating the Steelers,” Tomlin said. “Don’t get me wrong, sometimes it can be charact er iz ed as p ar t o f August football but I’m not buying that. I think we can set the bar higher than that for the first time out.” R oet h li sb erg er and offensive coordinator Todd Haley spent a portion of the of fseason searching for middle ground after a somewhat bumpy 2012. Pittsburgh kept it conservative against the defense t h a t fin ish ed a woefu l 3 1 s t in th e l eagu e last fall. Roethlisberger only went down the field once, but Antonio Brown was u n a ble to k eep h is feet inbounds on what could

The rookie linebacker and heir apparent to James Harrison recovered a fumble in his first game as a pro. New York, unlike Pittsburgh, has some definition on the depth chart at running back. The Giants gave the starting job to David Wilson when they let Ahmad Bradshaw leave in free agency. Wilson did little in two series of work, carrying five times for 16 yards. The Giants sat several r eg ular s d u e to in ju r y, including defensive stars Ju st in T u ck an d Jason Pierre-Paul. Rookie offensive tackle Justin Pugh also m is sed th e gam e because of a concussion.

think you got him, ‘Nah.’ He got you figur ed out alr eady,” Hunter said. “Miguel’s definitely the best hitter on the planet.” The slumped-shouldered Hughes was lifted following Hunter’s single. He allowed seven hits and four runs in 4 1-3 innings, striking out six without a walk. “I have to keep grinding,” Hughes said. “There are a few pitches I’d like back — the hanging slider to Jackson. But the fastball to Cabrera, that was a foot inside and well off the plate? You just tip your cap to him.” When asked if dropping Hughes — who is 2-9 with

a 5.29 ERA in his last 11 decisions — from the rotation was a possibility, Girardi said: “I don’t know if we have other options. We need him to pitch well.” Cabr era then singled and Martinez had an RBI double of f Preston Claiborne with Cabrera slowly chugging into third. He scored on Kelly’s two-run single for a 6-0 lead. “I’m glad this guy’s a part of this team,” Sanchez said. “He’s amazing.” Chamberlain r elieved with two on in the sixth, and gave up Hunter’s 13th of the year on his third pitch.

Lyle Overbay had pulled New York to 6-2 in the bottom of the fifth with a two-run drive to right. Overbay added an RBI single in the ninth. Sanchez did not allow a baserunner until Gardner led off the fourth by fisting a blooper to right that went only a few yards farther than a shard of his broken bat that landed in between first and second base. “Sanchez controlled the tempo of the game,” Lelyand said. In the first start of his career at Yankee Stadium, Sanchez gave up two runs and four hits. He struck out seven and walked one.

Cabrera, Hunter lead Tigers in romp over Yankees Pittsburgh’s Ben Roethlisberger (7) looks to hand-off during the first quarter of the Steelers’ game against the Giants, Saturday.

NEW YORK (AP) — Jim Leyland has nearly half a century in baseball. Torii Hunter is a five-time AllStar. Anibal Sanchez is a rising talent. Whatever the perspective, the opinion is the same: Miguel Cabrera is on a whole dif fer ent level. Cabr era homer ed against the Yankees again and had three hits while playing on a bandaged leg and Torii Hunter connected and drove in four runs, leading the Detroit Tigers to a 9-3 victory over New York on Saturday. “It’s hard to believe what we are seeing,” Leyland said. “I’m seeing things that are mind-boggling.” Sanchez (10-7) tossed seven easy innings against a Yankees lineup that was without Alex Rodriguez. Manager Joe Girardi said he was giving the thir d baseman a day off after he struck out three times in his season debut in the Bronx. Austin Jackson followed a four -hit, three-double night Friday with a homer and triple against the organization that drafted him. Don Kelly had a tworun single after Phil Hughes (4-11) was lifted in a four -run fifth to help the

AL Central leaders win for the 17th time in 21 games since the All-Star break. Hunter and Kelly each had three of Detroit’s 17 hits and Victor Martinez had an RBI double. Lounging on a clubhouse couch Satur day mor ning, Cabr era was wearing a big, squar e Band-Aid over the spot on his left shin wher e he fouled one of two balls Friday night before homering off Mariano Rivera to send the game into extra innings. Detroit lost that one to end a 12-game win str eak, but the T igers r olled along Satur day behind the hobbled Triple Crown winner. “Sor e,” Cabr era said after driving in his 109th run. “It’s a long season. You go thr ough a lot of stuff with injuries. You got to try to hang in and battle.” Cabrera singled in the first and connected in the third on an inside pitch for his 35th of the year. He singled against Hughes in the fifth, slowly working his way around the bases and scoring on Kelly’s tworun single in a four -run inning. “It’s not about talk,” Cabrera said. “It’s about

going out there and play.” A-Rod, who bolted the ballpark before talking to the media Friday night, was not surprised that Cabrera was able to homer while in so much pain. “The guy is amazing. I mean that was a joke,” Rodriguez said Saturday. “Everyone thought he was dead — it was like the movies, you’ve got to shoot him to make sur e he’s dead. I knew he wasn’t coming out of the game and said, ‘Don’t fall for that bait of limping around.’ He’s a dangerous guy.” Hunter homer ed of f Joba Chamberlain in the sixth to make it 9-2. Fans booed the little-used reliever about as much as they jeered Hughes, who failed to get past the fifth inning for the ninth time in 22 starts this season. Jackson tripled over the head of center fielder Brett Gardner to start the game, and he scored on Hunter’s sacrifice fly. Cabr era homered in the third on a pitch that appeared as if it might hit his knee, and Jackson sent a one-out line drive over the left-field fence in the fifth. “He knows how to make adjustments.

Louisiana-Monroe’s comeback win at Arkansas. He also recalled how close Louisiana-Lafayette came to upsetting Florida before the Gators retur ned a blocked punt for a score in the final seconds. ULM also nearly won at Auburn. “To me, the strength of our conference is still here, intact,” said Louisiana-Lafayette coach Mark Hudspeth, who’s led the Ragin’ Cajuns to two straight New Orleans Bowl triumphs.

another preseason game or two like he did Thursday night. “We’re bringing him along,” offensive coordinator Adam Gase said. “(He’s a) younger guy that was an undrafted free agent; you can’t just throw him right in with what’s going on with the 1s. It’s a process for him, and I think he’s trying to get caught up to speed as quickly as possible.” With the Broncos getting better, it’s becoming harder and harder for undrafted college free agents to crack their roster, but Anderson practices and plays with a nastiness befitting his status as an overlooked, underappreciated back who uses his snub of draft weekend as a burning ember his in belly. “I’ve always got a chip on my shoulder with every team I play, including when I play the Denver Broncos at practice,” he said. Facing backups or not, Anderson consistently reels off some of the longer, more impressive runs at training camp and it was no different in the Broncos’ preseason opener. “I always knew what I could do,” he said. “I never doubted my talent or my ability. It’s not a surprise to me. But I am proud and I am glad I got the opportunity to do it. I just took advantage of my opportunities in front of me. You have some of the guys out there where it’s on the line, undrafted guys like

league’s preseason offensive player of the year, who passed for more than 3,000 yards last season. “In today’s college football, when you’ve got a quarterback, you’ve got a chance,” Berry said. “We’ve got a quarterback, so we’ve got a chance.” Coaches picked Troy to finish fifth, but the Trojans and coach Larry Blakeney know how to win, having won five straight league titles from 2006-2010. Last season, all but one of their seven losses came by a touchdown or less, so they don’t seem far behind.


PETRINO’S PRESENCE: Petrino is 7526 in eight seasons as a Division I college head coach, missing out on a bowl only once. He led both Louisville and Arkansas to their first BCS games and if not for offthe-field problems, he might still be coach-

hopes, he threw for 3,138 yards and 25 touchdowns last season — while running for 1,815 yards and 19 TDs. Numbers like that — if he can repeat them — will get attention.


THREE STRAIGHT?: Six teams have won the MAC title in the last nine seasons, and the last three league championship games were down-to-the-wire thrillers. Amid all that apparent parity, Northern Illinois is starting to look like a legitimate dynasty. The Huskies are trying to become the first team to win three straight MAC titles since Marshall won four in a row from 1997-2000. Including the last two conference title games, Northern Illinois has won 17 straight against MAC opponents. The biggest

So, them making the blocks making me look good really makes them look good.” The Indianapolis Colts have had at least one undrafted free agent make their Week 1 roster in each of the last 14 years. Kansas City has a 10-year streak and Denver’s nine-year streak includes the likes of cornerback Chris Harris and linebacker Wesley Woodyard. “At the end of the day, they all say, ‘You’re here, it doesn’t matter how you got here,”’ Anderson said. “Terrell Davis was drafted in the sixth round. They always talk about him a lot. Rod Smith was undrafted, on the practice squad and they always talk about him a lot and he’s done some things. So, the organization is known for undrafted players to step up and make plays and I’m just trying to put myself in that category.” Notes: CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie returned to practice Saturday in full pads just 10 days after suffering a high left ankle sprain. ... DC Jack Del Rio said he hasn’t mapped out contingency plans in case All-Pro pass-rusher Von Miller loses his appeal of a four-game suspension for violating the league’s drugabuse policy, a hearing on which is scheduled for Thursday. “No, I haven’t spent a lot of time on that. There is plenty of time for that,” Del Rio said. “Right now we are just preparing the team that we have here working.”

The surprise was Masters champion Adam Scott, who was poised to seize control at any moment. Scott blasted a driver on the uphill, 318-yard 14th hole that was so pure he snatched his tee from the ground as the ball was still rising. It stopped 25 feet below the cup, and he had an eagle putt to tie for the lead. The Australian two-putted for birdie, and two holes later fell back with a double bogey on the 16th. Scott escaped further damage with a 15foot par save on the 17th and managed a 72. He was four shots behind, along with Steve Stricker, who had a 70. Those were the only five players within five shots of the lead. Whether more join the chase depends on Furyk, who was at 9under 201. Still with an outside chance was Rory McIlroy, who came to life with three birdies over his last six holes for a 67. McIlroy, trying to join Tiger Woods and Padraig Harrington as the only repeat winners of the PGA in the stroke-play era, knocked in a 40-foot birdie putt on the 17th and then showed more emotion than he has all year when he chipped in for birdie on the 18th. “It was good to feel the

host of preseason accolades. Not only is he the Sun Belt preseason offensive player of the year, but also has been named to watch lists for the Walter Camp Award, Davey O’Brien Quarterback Award, Maxwell Award and CFPA Of fensive Awards. COACHING CAROUSEL: Arkansas State is a contender despite having its fourth coach in four years. Last year, Gus Malzahn was in charge. He’s since left for Auburn, replaced by former Texas cooffensive coordinator Bryan Harsin. NEWBIES: Texas State and Georgia State enter their first year in the Sun Belt, while South Alabama enters its second after a 2-11 record in its debut season. Some coaches see Texas State as a sleeping giant, given its easy access to fertile recruiting grounds and its hiring of coach Dennis Franchione, who previously coached at Alabama and Texas A&M.

pionship playoff. The new system — plus the seemingly endless talk of conference realignment — has made the bowl schedule beyond this season pretty uncertain. For example, Detroit Lions are now hosting a bowl at Ford Field. That could spell the end of the Little Caesars Pizza Bowl, which had a relationship with the MAC. The scramble will be on for this mid-major league to find enough spots for its postseasoneligible teams. A record seven MAC teams played in bowls last year — Northern Illinois, Kent State, Ball State, Toledo, Ohio, Bowling Green and Central Michigan. This season, the league has three primary bowl agreements and four secondary relationships.

sort of rush again,” McIlroy said. He was at 207, still six shots behind. Woods, meanwhile, will have to wait eight more months to end his drought in the majors. He opened with two bogeys in three holes and shot a 73 to fall 13 shots behind. It was a shocking performance from the world’s No. 1 player, mainly because he was coming off an eightshot win at Firestone that included a 61. Woods has made only seven birdies in 54 holes — four of them on par 3s. British Open champion Phil Mickelson was even worse. He sprayed the ball all over Oak Hill on his way to a 78, matching his highest score ever in the PGA Championship. Furyk wasn’t overly excited when he opened this championship with a 65 to share the lead with Scott, and he has kept his eyes in front of him since then. He wasn’t even sure what the leaderboard looked like, except that his name was at the top. “I’m comfortable with where I’m at,” Furyk said. “There’s a crowded leaderboard at the top, and instead of really viewing it as who is leading and who is not, I’m really viewing it as I need to go out there tomorrow and put together a good, solid round of golf. Fire a good number and hope it stacks up well.”


IS LYNCH A LOCK ... for the MAC’s most valuable player award? He might be. But don’t rule out Ohio quarterback Tyler Tettleton or Toledo running back David Fluellen. Buffalo linebacker Khalil Mack made the watch list for the Bronko Nagurski Trophy, which goes to the nation’s best defensive player. Dayonne Nunley anchors Miami of Ohio’s secondary. AT THE BOTTOM: Northern Illinois isn’t the only team carrying a long streak into this season. Akron is coming off backto-back 0-8 records in conference play, and the Zips don’t play Eastern Michigan, which finished last in the other division in 2012. Akron’s best shot at a conference win may be against Massachusetts, and that game is on the road.

No one looked terribly comfortable at the start, not with the swirling wind and water hazard that winds its way along the front nine. U.S. Open champion Justin Rose fell apart early with back-to-back double bogeys that sent him to a 42. He wound up with a 77. Scott opened with a 20-foot birdie putt, only to follow with back-to-back bogeys. And when Dufner ended his string of pars by driving into the creek on No. 5 for double bogey, it appeared that this tournament was wide open. The leaders steadied themselves, leaving the Sunday still up for grabs but likely among fewer players. Furyk spoke earlier in the week about the sting of losing in the big events, and he’s had a share of them, such as his runnerup finish in the 2007 U.S. Open at Oakmont near where he grew up, and last year at Olympic Club when he lost the lead on the 70th hole by snaphooking his tee shot on a par 5. Scott knows as well as anyone how unpredictable a final round can be. He was four shots up with four holes to play at the British Open last year and watched Ernie Els win the claret jug. At Muirfield last month, Mickelson came from five shots behind on the final day and won by three.

and that was the winning run. He can do some things out there on the ball field and that’s all we want him to do, is just play the game the way he can play.” The Rangers trailed by two in the seventh before the Astros’ bullpen failed them again, with Kevin Chapman allowing Andrus’ first home run this season to tie it at 3. The Astros regained the lead when Brandon Barnes scored on a wild pitch in the bottom of that inning. Pierzynski hit a solo home run in the sixth inning. Texas starter Derek Holland allowed six hits and three runs in six innings. Jason Frasor (3-2) allowed one run in the seventh for the win and Joe Nathan threw a scoreless ninth for his 34th save.

Joe David Grant

Joe David Grant, 70, of Denton, TX, passed away August 3, 2013. He was bor n April 20, 1943, in Dexter, NM, to Walter (Shorty) Grant and LaVerne Phillips Grant. He graduated from Dexter High School in 1961. During his younger years, he enjoyed drag racing and was an accomplished mechanic. Joe drove trucks in the Dexter area before moving to TX to work in the oil industry.

As a child growing up in Dexter, Joe’s parents, aunts, and uncles frequently met at the home of his grandparents, O.W. and Lillian Phillips, for Sunday dinners where 32 first cousins played, laughed, fought, and grew to love one another.

Fort Hood victims want shooting designated terror Army Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan admits pulling out a pistol, shouting “Allahu akbar” (God is great) and opening fire on unarmed people, killing 13 of them. All, he says, in an effort to stop them from going to Afghanistan and killing his fellow Muslims. Concluding he was on the “wrong side” in America’s war, he told jurors at his court-martial that he switched sides. So, victims and others are demanding, why is the November 2009 attack at Fort Hood being tried as a case of workplace violence and not as an act of terror? Military law expert Scott L. Silliman says the answer is simple. Because the Uniform Code of Military Justice does not have a punitive article for “terrorism.” “They really didn’t have an option,” says Silliman, director emeritus of Duke University’s Center on Law, Ethics and National

Security in Durham, N.C. “He was an active-duty officer. The crime occurred on a military installation. ... It was obvious he was going to face a court-martial.” Victims of the shooting rampage filed a lawsuit last year over the administration’s decision to treat the incident as workplace violence. They say that designation has robbed them of benefits and made them ineligible to receive the Purple Heart, awarded to service members wounded in battle. On Monday, the staff of the magazine National Review launched a petition drive directed at Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel, arguing that the Ar my psychiatrist should be tried as an enemy combatant for what they consider “an Act of Terror.” “By not designating this event as such an act, it disrespects the lives of the 13 who lost their lives that day, and dozens more who

were injured,” the petition reads. “This is outrageous and I call on you to change the official designation now” before proceedings against Hasan go further. While Silliman understands the outrage, he says transferring the case to civil courts — where a terror charge could attach — was just not possible. “It would have been totally unprecedented to have that sort of thing occur,” says Silliman, who has served as senior attorney at two large military installations and three major Air Force commands. “Now, if the crime had occurred off the post, then there might have been what we call concurrent jurisdiction between the civilian authorities and the military authorities.” Why can’t the administration call this an act of terror without charging Hasan as a terrorist?

paper opposing Purple Hearts for the victims that would allow the defense to argue that Hasan “cannot receive a fair trial because a branch of government has indirectly declared that Major Hasan is a terrorist — that he is criminally culpable.” Reed Rubinstein, one of the attorneys representing a number of the shooting victims and their families, calls that argument “disingenuous.” The National Counterterrorism Center and State Department both counted the incident among terror attacks that year, he notes. The White House Department of and Defense have balked, he argues, because too many people didn’t heed warning signs that Hasan was becoming increasingly radical leading up to his deployment to Afghanistan. “The truth of the matter is, it comes down to politics,” the Washington

Roswell Folklorico forming classes Watch for children as school begins Folklorico registration


Tomorrow’s the day! I double-checked the Roswell Independent School District 20132014 calendar, just to be sure, and yes, tomorrow — Aug. 12 — is “All Students Grades 1-12 Report” day. Throughout our community, some 10,000 students will head back to school, some for the first time and many later in their school careers. There will be many things different from Friday, just a couple of days ago. Suddenly, we will see many school buses around the town, picking up and dropping off children at school. There will be hundreds of children walking to and from school, and there will be lots of traffic near all of the schools. None of this is new to us; it has been just a few months since the last school year ended. Personally, however, I feel a need to remind myself one more time to be just a little more careful. It is critically important that we as drivers constantly remind ourselves to be acutely aware of these precious children — these Gifts of God — as they go to school. Put down your phone and avoid all distracted driving! Your full attention should always be on your driving, but especially so during school days. Obviously, parents of school children play the key role in the safety of their children. I believe it is extremely important that the family rules are set and that they are clear to the students. For children who will be walking to school, parents should spend some time checking out the route, looking for any possible hazards which the child may encounter and identifying a safe place to go if the child needs help. The child should be reminded to stop, look and listen before crossing the street and to cross at crosswalks, always obeying traffic signals. Also, they should walk or bike with a friend. It is much safer and certainly more fun with a buddy! Students who are walking should go directly to school and directly home afterward, staying on sidewalks or bike paths and should not take short cuts. If you are a parent, let your child know about “stranger danger,” that if someone approaches them or makes them feel uncomfortable, they must not talk to them and just keep walking or riding. Here’s a thought, new to me, but suggested in the material I have just read. “Don’t put your name on clothing, backpacks, books or lunch boxes that is visible to others.” Wondering why, I learned that such labels can make your kid a target for a predator. It’s often difficult for a kid to separate strangers from acquaintances, and when an adult calls out a name, young children may think that the person is on the OK list. So if your child walks home from school, place the name discreetly on the inside of the item. For those children who ride their bikes to school, there are other safety considerations. The child should always wear bright colored clothing so that they are more visible to drivers, and they should always wear a bicycle helmet. Additionally, their backpacks must be tight on the upper back so that they do not drag on the rear tire. School’s back in session, not just for the students, but for all of us!


DURANGO, Colo. (AP) — When summer monsoons bring thunderstorms to Southwest Colorado, lightning bolts can come fast and furious. Justin Moore, assistant manager of the Durango Interagency Fire Dispatch Center made the point by displaying a map showing one week of lightning strikes in the area bounded by Red Mountain Pass to the New Mexico state line and from Utah’s eastern border to Wolf Creek Pass. Blue dots denoting the location of individual hits are so concentrated the map appears largely a mass of blue. The map for the period July 19-25 shows 41,318 bolts of lightning reached the ground, Moore said. Moore and fire dispatch colleagues in Durango track the hits through the United States Precision Lightning Network (USPLN) to know where lightning is most active and could spark wildfires. The hits appear on the USPLN map within 30 seconds of occurrence. The USPLN is a grid of sensors that register cloud-toground lightning strikes over the Lower 48 and report the time and location to central processors in Massachusetts and Florida via the Internet. Each finger of a bolt is recorded, not just the flash alone. Simulations show that the system detects 95 percent or more of strikes and locates them, on average, within 250 meters (820 feet). When smoke or fire is reported by someone on the ground or is spotted by aerial surveillance, the fire dispatch center consults the USPLN map to get a precise location before dispatching a crew to investigate.

Roswell Daily Record

30th annual


Roswell Fine Arts League

Juried Art Show


An internationally-renown artist carefully makes the final strokes on a miniature print with a fine, tiny brush. Painting on silk — arguably the best material for a miniature painting — the piece depicts a quintessential moment of English country life. It shows a girl passing out sandwiches during a hunt meet at a farmhouse in Milverton, England. Another artist a half a world away seeks to answer a lifelong question through his art: “What does it mean to be an American?” Working primarily in woodcuts, he depicts rustic buildings with a breathtaking Southwest sunset in the background, or a dusting of snow around a quiet eatery. Such is the variety of art brought together by the Roswell Fine Arts League/New Mexico Miniature Arts Society’s annual juried art show, set to take place Aug. 22-Sept. 1 at the Roswell Museum and Art Center. The public may see the artwork during regular museum hours; and can even make arrangements to purchase a work of art they simply cannot live without. Titled “Pearls of the Pecos,” the show will bring some of the most intriguing artwork from around the world to the Pecos Valley. In its 30th year, the show will be dedicated to Richard Cibak, a longtime RFAL member who passed away July 10. Cibak was an integral member of the RFAL. He had just been elected as its secretary, but was once its president, vice president and newsletter editor. He helped found the Roswell Fine Arts League art gallery, aptly called The Gallery, located at 107 E. Fifth St., in 1998. Joyce Tucker, publicity chairwoman for the RFAL, said a memorial award will be established in Cibak’s name. Like all other RFAL juried art show awards, it will be given during the opening night reception on Aug. 22 from 6:30-8:30 p.m. at the RMAC. All may attend this free event, Tucker said. About 75 members strong, the RFAL’s annual show will include nearly 200 pieces. All of these works have been through a selection process by a jury. “All the works represent a variety of styles, mediums (and) subject matter,” Tucker said. The art show includes a special exhibition with free admission to students. This includes college students as well. Tucker said students have an option to price and sell their work during the art show. Although no longer accepting works for its regular art show exhibition, the RFAL is still accepting student artwork. For more information about submitting as a student, call 622-4985. Although the RFAL has featured many of the same artists every year, this is the first year for woodcut artist Tony Lazorko. Based in Mesilla, he had three works accepted into the show: “Fast-Food Momma,” “Crossroads” and “Snow @ the Eat-Rite.” Visual elements should bring about that “at onceness” feeling we are all instinctively aware of, Lazorko has written in an essay about his art. This element of “at onceness” can arguably be found in pieces that convey much more than what they depict. This quality is evident in Lazorko’s work; whether it be neatly folded laundry and detergent atop a washer and dryer, or cars driving along a desert highway. Simple elements of American life come together in Lazorko’s work and all seem to point toward one singular effort: achieving one’s American dream, whatever a person’s concept of that dream is. “I continue to try to tell the American story through my work,” he said. “(I try to) sum up America; who we are.” Oil painter and miniaturist Joyce Rowsell seeks to depict life of a very different kind. And, her ability to capture the peace and serenity of English country life has garnered international attention. It was Rowsell’s appeal that led her to exhibit work in Roswell. Based in England, Rowsell’s initial interest in the RFAL came from the coincidence of how similar her married name was to “Roswell.” She receives correspondence from art organizations from around the world, and recalled receiving an art newsletter from Florida that mentioned Roswell. “The name intrigued me because, although my married name is Rowsell, many Americans addressed me as Roswell,” the artist stated in an email. “That is why I sent pictures (to Roswell) in the first place. I keep sending (to the RFAL) because they have been very kind to me, giving me many prizes and sending me a newsletter every month. They seem to be a very lively and go-ahead society. “I have loved being a part of the Roswell Fine Arts League and the New Mexico Miniature Art Society,” she added. “(I) have felt inspired by their energy and commitment.” In fact, one of the first times she mailed entries to the RFAL — back in 2001 — all three entries were not only accepted into the show, but also earned accolades. Rowsell was awarded Best of Show, Merit in Oil and People’s Choice. “This may have been the first time I sent (to the RFAL),” Rowsell stated. “You can imagine how pleased I was to get three prizes.” Rowsell, much like Lazorko, aims to capture the quintessential nuances of her world through her art. In one painting, she depicts a Helsinki hotel just as the Finnish sun begins to illuminate tall trees, large banks of snow and a sauna. Many of Rowsell’s works are exquisite landscapes such as this one; others depict intrinsically European celebrations such as church fetes, May fairs and hunt meets. Views of England’s West Country were the subject of a series of works she submitted to the RFAL this year, including “The Prospect Inn, Exeter Waterfront,” “Boats at Porlock,” “Waiting for the Ferry, Teignmouth” and “Porlock Harbour.” Yet another artist to be featured in the RFAL show takes bright, cheery watercolors and uses them to depict nostalgia and mystery.

Artist Suzi Powell, based in Plains, Texas, has made a series of paintings that depict old vehicles. They often stand alone in nature as if abandoned, waiting for their story to be told. “They all have a story,” Powell said of older vehicles, which have been a focus of dozens of paintings. “We just don’t know what it is ... and, they can’t tell us.” The juried art show will feature two of Powell’s works — “Made in the USA,” a painting depicting an old bicycle, and “Blue Skies,” which shows a nostalgic view of an old car. Powell has become exceedingly successful with watercolors. She is a signature member of both the Wyoming Watercolor Society and the Southwestern Watercolor Society based in Dallas. Being a signature member means Powell can write the initials of these organizations on her paintings, next to her signature. No small feat, she said it took her 10 years to become an SWS signature member, as the honor is only bestowed upon artists who get five paintings into their show. Only one painting per artist is allowed in a show, Powell said. Becoming a WWS signature member took only about three years, Powell said, as that group allows more paintings from the same artists per show. “My goal is to be a member of the American Watercolor Society, but it’s very, very difficult to get in,” Powell said. Despite her past achievements, she was humble about the process she has yet to complete to be able to add “AWS” to her signature. “You have to be outstanding to get there,” Powell said. “I have a long way to go.” For more information about the upcoming Roswell Fine Arts League New Mexico Miniature Arts Society juried art show, call 622-4985.

Ask son about fraternity before he pledges C2 Sunday, August 11, 2013

Q: Our son is heading off for his first year at college and wants to pledge to a fraternity. Is this a good idea for a freshman? I don’t know much about fraternities. Jim: The answer to this question depends on a number of factors. Not every fraternity resembles “Animal House.” While some may be considered almost entirely social in nature, others seek to bring together students who share similar interests or who are involved in the same academic disciplines. There are service-oriented fraternities, ethnically and linguistically based fraternities, and even some fraternities whose purpose is primarily religious or spiritual. That being the case, it’s important for you to discern what type of fraternity your son is hoping to join. Unfortunately, many do have a reputation for wild behavior and crazy parties. That’s not to mention the peer-group power they wield. It can have a huge





impact on an impressionable freshman living away from home for the first time in his life. And some campuses are known for these types of frat houses more than others. Is the atmosphere on campus studious or “party like”? Is the fraternity in question spiritual, academic or purely social in purpose? If you don’t know, sit down with your son and find out.

It’s also critical that you consider your son’s character. Is he firmly grounded in his beliefs? Does he know his own mind, or is he easily influenced by others? If you feel that he lacks the maturi-

ty to handle a fraternity at this point, encourage him to look for loyal companions elsewhere by pointing him toward other academic and social groups on campus. Q: My teenage daughter has battled boredom and wasted a lot of time during summer break. What can I do to change that next year? Bob Waliszewski, director of Plugged In: It’s difficult to move from a schedule of structured sixto 10-hour days to total free time. And a bored teen will be unhappy and more likely to gravitate toward trouble. But counselors Tim Geare and Tim Sanford suggest that it’s possible to help structure your daughter’s life over the summer months and still have her feel ownership and excitement. Geare and Sanford recommend that parents decide the overall priorities and tone of the summer. Will every day begin at noon or dawn? Will there be a family

vacation? Is there a financial goal for your teen? Is camp or a mission trip an option? How do siblings’ needs fit into the picture? How about summer school? Are there sports she could further develop? And most importantly, are there character qualities lacking in her life? Develop a vision for what you feel is in your daughter’s best interest. Consider her gifts, skills and interests, and develop options that will engage her imagination.

Too many bored teens gravitate toward the TV or video game controller. While I don’t think these things should be taboo, I do recommend that your daughter “earn” the privilege: Every hour of reading a great book translates into 30 minutes of screen time. For older teens, employment is a key issue, but make sure any job supports the overall goals of the summer. If camp or a family trip is important, don’t let a job confound those priorities. If age or circumstances eliminate paid

MILAN (AP) — A long-lost Orson Welles film that was believed destroyed in a 1970 fire has been discovered in a northern Italian warehouse and will finally make its public debut 75 years after being filmed, an Italian film archive announced Thursday. The silent film “Too Much Johnson,” a slapstick comedy made just before Welles went to Hollywood to film “Citizen Kane,” was found in a box that had been stored for years in the northeastern city of Pordenone before being identified, said Giuliana Puppin, a spokeswoman for the archive, Cineteca del Friuli. How the 35mm nitrate print arrived in Pordenone remains a mystery. Found by a shipping company, it was turned over at some point to a local film society — but the film seemed of no particular value and was left unopened for many years, Puppin said. “We don’t know where the box came from. There were no documents with it. We don’t know the road it took,” Puppin said. “Too Much Johnson” stars Joseph Cotten and is less a feature film than a series of scenes made to be shown as part of a production of the play by the same name, said Circo Giorgini, an Italian expert on Welles who identified the film about three years ago. It was never finished and never shown publically. While the existence of the film was known, the only remaining copy was believed to have been destroyed in a 1970 fire at Welles’ home in Madrid. It is not known how many copies of the film were actually made. The film has been newly restored by the George Eastman House in Rochester, New York. It will debut Oct. 9 at Le Giornate del Cinema Muto, a silent film festival in Pordenone.


DEAR ABBY: Thanks to a change in state law, my partner and I can finally marry. We’re now struggling with whether to invite our parents and families to our wedding. While they have been respectful of us together and seemed to love my partner, it has become increasingly obvious that they don’t want to really talk about our lives. Specifically, our new right to marry. No one has said a word to us about the marriage law, even though it dominated the news

for months before being passed in May. After prompting, they said they support our having the same rights, but have a problem calling us married. We are going to be married and have decided to invite only those who sincerely support us to share our special day. Because I’m so hurt by their silence on this, how do I tactfully let them know they aren’t invited to the wedding without severing all ties? I’m sure we aren’t the only couple facing this new issue.

DEAR ABBY: I started dating a wonderful man two years ago. We will be getting married in a few weeks and own a house together. He has been a wonderful father to my two children. He loves them very much and the feeling is mutual. From the start, he knew I wanted to have a child with him, and he said he wanted the same. Last spring I became pregnant by accident, but sadly, had a miscarriage a few months later. When I told him I was pregnant, he was not excited and made comments that caused me stress. After the miscarriage, he acted like nothing had happened, which hurt me deeply because I really wanted that baby.

Now he says he doesn’t want a baby anymore — that he has changed his mind without even considering that I still want one. I’m so lost. Please give me some advice. BABY MAYBE? IN PUERTO RICO

DEAR BABY MAYBE?: You and your fiance appear to have a communication problem. Now that you know he has changed his mind about wanting a child with you, you have a right to know why. Discussing this with the counsel of a neutral mediator would be helpful before your trip to the altar. Because the agreement between you was that you would be enlarging your family, you may need to rethink whether you want to go through with the wedding. If that’s the case, you may also need the help of an attorney to separate from him financially because you own property together.

ITC issues import ban on certain Samsung products

AP Photo

This July 26 file photo shows models of Samsung Electronics' Galaxy S4 smart phones being displayed at a showroom of its headquarters in Seoul, South Korea.

NEW YORK (AP) — Apple won a partial victory in its long-running patent dispute with Samsung on Friday when a federal administrative panel found Samsung in violation of two Apple

patents and blocked imports of some Samsung devices. Even as the U.S. International Trade Commission found Samsung in violation of the two patents, it cleared the South

Korean company on four other patents in dispute. President Barack Obama’s administration has 60 days to veto ITC rulings. Over the weekend, the administration invalidated a June order that sided with Samsung and banned imports of Apple’s iPhone 4 and a variant of its iPad 2. But the patents involved in Friday’s ruling aren’t of the type that Obama found objectionable. Samsung Electronics Co. and Apple Inc. are in a global legal battle over smartphones. Apple argues Samsung’s Android phones copy vital iPhone features. Samsung is fighting back with its own complaints. The legal disputes come as competition in the marketplace intensifies. Samsung has been cutting into Apple’s dominance in phones and is now the leading smartphone manufacturer. Samsung is also pushing into Apple’s territory with its own Android tablet computers. These cases typically involve older products that are no longer widely sold. Two of the phones cited in Friday’s ruling

were both 2010 models — the Continuum and the Transform. Nonetheless, a victory in such cases could affect what features are included in future devices and could slow down a rival’s momentum. Apple could also seek to ban imports of phones released since the case was filed in 2011. Samsung spokesman Adam Yates said the company was disappointed in the ban, but said the ruling did reject Apple’s ef fort “to use its overbroad design patents to achieve a monopoly on rectangles and rounded corners.” Yates said Samsung will continue to release new products and have taken measures to ensure they will continue to be available in the U.S. In a statement, Apple said the ITC “has joined courts around the world in Japan, Korea, Germany, Netherlands and California by standing up for innovation and rejecting Samsung’s blatant copying of Apple’s products. Protecting real innovation is what the patent system should be about.”

Last year, a federal court in San Francisco ruled that Samsung owed Apple $1 billion in damages for infringing on nonessential Apple patents. But the judge refused to impose an import ban on Samsung phones and later struck $450 million from the verdict, saying the jurors miscalculated. An appeals court in Washington heard arguments in that case Friday, but has not issued a ruling. In June, the ITC ruled that Apple violated one of Samsung’s patents. That patent is deemed to be a “standards-essential patent,” meaning holders are supposed to license them to all companies on “fair, reasonable and non-discriminatory” terms. U.S. courts have ruled that such patents cannot be the basis for import bans. But the ITC, which is an administrative agency and not a court, follows a different standard than the courts. The Obama administration wants the ITC to adhere to the same principles and has recommended that Congress limit the ITC’s ability to impose import bans in these cases.

$250,000 awarded to Stocks slide on quiet day, end the week down city of Alamogordo

SANTA FE—Economic Development Secretary Jon Barela announced $250,000 in Local Economic Development Act funds will be awarded to the city of Alamogordo for use toward construction of the First Research Science and Technology (FRST) facility in Alamogordo. LEDA is a program in the New Mexico Economic Development Department that funds, through local communities, infrastructure projects which are tied to job creation. Last month, Gov. Susana Martinez announced that FRST will create 24 highwage jobs in Alamogordo.

“LEDA is a great job creation tool that provides critical infrastructure for job relocation or expansion,” Barela said. “FRST is a wonderful company that will create high-wage, economic-base jobs that will not only help to employ New Mexicans but also contribute to the local and state GRT.” During the 2013 Legislative session an additional $3.3 million was approved for LEDA investments.

The LEDA investment will support infrastructure improvements for the FRST facility located on New York Avenue in Alamogordo, which has been vacant for many years and requires extensive modifications. At completion, the facility will serve as a design and integration facility for the manufacture of unmanned ground vehicles. Build out will be coordinated with city planners to ensure exterior modifications are consistent with the long term vision for the MainStreet area.

NEW YORK (AP) — Friday was the ho-hum capstone to a ho-hum week in the stock market as unimpressive earnings kept investors feeling wary and news about the U.S. economy left them uninspired. All three major indexes ended lower, and almost everything about the day screamed summer. Trading was light and earnings season was nearly over. The only major economic news the government released was wholesale inventories, and that’s hardly a closely watched indicator. Those still at work remarked on the difference that just a week made — the S&P 500 and the Dow Jones industrial average both hit their highest closing levels exactly one week before — and joked that all their colleagues had already taken off for the Hamptons, a group of tony beach towns east of Manhattan. Friday marked not just a losing day but also a losing week for the Dow, the S&P 500 and the Nasdaq composite. For the Dow, it was its first weekly loss since June. The Dow closed down 72.81 points,

or 0.5 percent, to 15,425.51. The S&P 500 index lost 6.06 points, or 0.4 percent, to 1,691.42. The Nasdaq composite was down 9.02 points, or 0.3 percent, to 3,660.11. Investors couldn’t pinpoint a specific reason for Friday’s decline, but said the entire week — one when the Dow and S&P 500 rose on only one day — has been weighed down by uninspired earnings reports. Earnings are up, but by less than analysts had forecast at the beginning of the year, and revenue is falling. There are also worries that the market has already reached its highs for the year. The S&P 500 is up 19 percent for the year. “There’s no specific culprit here, but the market seems to be tired,” said Robbert Van Batenburg, director of market strategy at Newedge in New York. Comments this week from Federal Reserve officials also make it seem likely that the Fed will soon rein in its stimulus measures, which are meant to prop up the economy and stock market. Some investors worry that

yanking off the Fed Band-Aid will reveal an economy that can’t stand on its own. The government reported that sales for U.S. wholesalers increased — but wholesalers also cut their stockpiles for a third straight month, an indication that they’re uncertain about future demand. Among stocks making big moves: — BlackBerry jumped after Reuters reported that the company may be growing more amenable to going private. The stock rose 53 cents, or 6 percent, to $9.76. — was up and came close to being the first S&P 500 company to cross $1,000. Shares of the travel website rose $36.14, or 4 percent, to $969.89, a day after the company announced earnings that were better than Wall Street analysts expected. —Noodles & Co. plummeted after the restaurant chain predicted that sales growth at established restaurants will slow down. The stock lost fell $4.96, or 11 percent, to $42.31.



Fight brews over private stake in a Mexican icon Roswell Daily Record

MEXICO CITY (AP) — The cornerstone of Mexico’s economy, its state-owned Pemex oil monopoly, is crumbling. An unnoticed gas leak at its flagship Mexico City headquarters caused an explosion that collapsed three floors and killed 37 people this year. Thieves by the thousands tap into the company’s pipelines, resulting in frequent fiery blasts and damaging leaks. Pemex has barely broken ground on its biggest investment project, a $9 billion refinery, four years after it was announced. Worst of all, Mexico’s oil fields are drying up and Pemex lacks the equipment to explore for new reserves in deep water or to extract shale gas. Production has plunged about 25 percent over the last decade, and a country that was once a significant oil power could become a net energy importer in a few years unless new production is brought online. Within days, President Enrique Pena Nieto is expected to propose the most sweeping changes in decades to rescue Petroleos Mexicanos. But the initiative is under ferocious attack even before it’s been made, largely because he is expected to propose loosening the government’s near-total monopoly on oil exploration and production. The passion over oil arises from one of Mexico’s proudest moments: President Lazaro Cardenas nationalized the industry in 1938, kicking out 17 foreign oil companies that Mexicans believe had been looting the country’s wealth. Seventy-five years later, most Mexicans still bristle at any hint of involvement by private companies, especially foreigners, even if Pemex itself is encrusted with barnacles of a powerful and bloated union, inefficiency, theft, corruption and outdated technology. The most controversial part of Pena’s plan will likely seek to encourage private investment and technology, possibly including risk-sharing, production-sharing or concessionary agreements, which are banned by Mexico’s constitution. Pena Nieto repeatedly has assured Mexicans that his plan will not privatize the industry. In the most likely scenario, it would allow private firms to share in a percentage of the oil they find, or revenue from it. At present, the law limits them to straight contractual work with incentive bonuses. “Mexico cannot delay the transformation of its energy sector any longer,” Sen. David Penchyna wrote in a recent newspaper column. “The economic premises are outdated, but the political dogma has hung on. ... The world changed, but we insisted on playing the same old role.” Penchyna, a member of Pena Nieto’s Institutional Revolutionary Party, or PRI, who is expected to shepherd the changes through the Senate, acknowledged that the measure would change the constitution, whose Article 27 states clearly that “no concessions or contracts may be awarded. ... The government will exploit these resources.” When former President Felipe Calderon tried a similar overhaul in 2008, thousands marched in the streets and opposing legislators padlocked the doors of Congress, camping out in the chambers in protest. The watereddown bill that resulted failed to solve Pemex’s underlying problem. Leftist opponents are already mobilizing against the new reform. Among the most impassioned is Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, who finished a close second in the last two presidential elections. “Oil is the property of the nation,” Lopez Obrador said in a speech this past week, charging that Mexico’s oil industry had been intentionally mismanaged by officials who “want to hand it back over to foreigners.” “I am absolutely convinced that privatizing petroleum, reforming Article 27, is betraying the country. We have to call things by their name. They are traitors,” he said. Many leftists, such as Cardenas’ son, Cuauhtemoc, argue that Pemex can be saved without touching the constitution. They say it needs only to operate more efficiently and be allowed to reinvest its profits in its operations, which are currently a cash cow that provides fully a third of the federal government’s annual budget. “There are those who see the opening (of the energy industry) and private sector participation as a magic wand that will solve everything,” said Cardenas, 79, him-

self a former presidential candidate. “But I don’t see how this famous magic wand will work, how it can solve all the problems simply by opening up the industry.” One thing Cardenas and others do want to change is the stranglehold that the petroleum workers union has on Pemex. Union boss Carlos Romero Deschamps controls nearly one-third of the seats on the company’s board and appears regularly with the president, even if Mexican news media have published reports on his son’s milliondollar Ferrari and his daughter’s trips to Europe in private jets. But Romero Deschamps is a PRI senator and an ally in Pena Nieto’s fight. Another union chief who tried to fight an earlier key Pena Nieto initiative, teacher’s leader Elba Esther Gordillo, found herself arrested on corruption charges. Calderon’s conservative National Action Party also is working with the president to woo leftist opponents and prevent a repeat of the 2008 failure. Pemex already allows private contractors to do tasks such as operating drills and wells, performing maintenance and providing supplies. But those “integrated contracts” have proven so unappealing to investors that no bids were made on half the oil field blocks near Mexico’s Gulf coast that Pemex put up for auction in July. Backers of the overhaul say there is global competition

for the expertise and sophisticated equipment, such as the self-propelled deep-water drilling platforms that Mexico needs to unlock its reserves, and they will be sent only to the most profitable fields. “Changes to the law, in this case the constitution, draw social, ideological and political opposition,” Penchyna wrote. “We cannot discuss an issue of such national importance unless we eliminate the almost theological component that some want to inject into it.” There is indeed something deep in the national psyche regarding oil. In a 2012 poll of 2,400 Mexicans by the Center for Economic Research and Teaching, 77 percent said foreign investment in general benefited the country, but 65 percent opposed any foreign investment in the oil industry. The poll had a margin of error of two percentage points. The business-oriented Mexican Institute on Competitiveness complained that the nationalist arguments have led nowhere. “No reforms. Technical arguments mean nothing when compared to the dignity of the nation,” the institute wrote sarcastically in a report on oil reform. “The Nation demands its inalienable right to stagnation, the privilege of losing out on the biggest technological revolution in a half century, the pleasure of expensive natural gas and imported oil.”

Reality TV meets real world, ‘Mountain Man’ style

TRIPLETT, N.C. (AP) — The way Eustace Conway sees it, there’s the natural world, as exemplified by his Turtle Island Preserve in the Blue Ridge Mountains. And then there’s the “plastic, imitation” world that most other humans inhabit. But the border between the two has always been porous — uncomfortably so these days. When Conway — known today as a star of the History Channel reality show “Mountain Men” — bought his first 107 acres in 1987, his vision for Turtle Island was as “a tiny bowl in the earth, intact and natural, surrounded by pavement and highways.” People peering inside from nearby ridges would see “a pristine and green example of what the whole world once looked like.” Since leaving his parents’ suburban home at 17 and moving into the woods, Conway has been preaching the gospel of sustainable, “primitive” living. But over the past three decades, those notions have clearly evolved. Conway has ditched his trademark buckskins for jeans and T-shirts. Visitors to Turtle Island are as likely to hear the buzz of a chain saw as the call of an eagle, and interns learn that “Dumpster diving” is as important a skill as hunting or fishing. And then there are the TV cameras, which he’s used to convey his message of simpler living for two seasons of “Mountain Men” — a role he concedes is inherently oxymoronic. “I think television’s terrible,” the 52year-old woodsman says with a chuckle that shakes his long, iron-grey beard and braids. “So it’s definitely a paradox.” But it’s all part of a complex dance. For Conway and Turtle Island, sustainability has come to depend on inter ns and apprentices, and on tax-exempt status from a regulatory system he openly despises.

Eustace Conway sits near horse-drawn farm implements at his Turtle Island Preserve in Triplett, N.C., on June 27. People come from all over the world to learn natural living and how to go off-grid, but local officials ordered the place closed over health and safety concerns.

It also depends, increasingly, on a steady stream of paying campers. And that is where Conway’s peaceful coexistence with the “modern world” broke down. Acting on a complaint about alleged improper building, of ficials from the Watauga County Planning and Inspection Department raided Turtle Island last fall and found dozens of structures without required permits. Citing numerous potential health and safety code violations, the county attor ney gave Conway three options: Bring the buildings up to minimum state standards, have an expert certify that they already met code and obtain proper permits, or tear them down.

What ensued was more than just a battle of government versus an individual. It was also very much about the lines between what is real and what is “reality.” ——— County Planning Director Joe Furman says the conflict started in late spring of 2012 with an anonymous phone call, followed about a week later by an unmarked envelope containing a color-coded map. It showed buildings, road grading and wiring — all allegedly done without proper permitting, engineering or inspections. Unlike some of his fellow TV “Mountain Men,” who toil high in the Rockies or far out in the Alaskan wilderness, Conway is

hardly cut off from civilization. Turtle Island lies near the Tennessee border, just a few miles east of Boone, N.C., a county seat of 17,000 residents whose population doubles when Appalachian State University, Conway’s alma mater, is in session. Just beyond the gravel road that leads into the 1,000-acre preserve, spacious, modern homes nestle on wooded lots within sight of the Blue Ridge Parkway. Once through the gates, everything changes. After crossing a dancing stream, the road opens onto a meadow ringed by a blacksmith shop, open-air kitchen and dining room, a corn crib and other outbuildings. Dominating the scene is a massive barn, constructed of dovetailed logs and roofed with 5,000 hand-hewn, mosscovered shingles. The name Turtle Island comes from an American Indian creation myth about a great reptile that saved the world’s creatures from a cataclysmic flood by supporting them on its shell. “In the figurative sense,” Conway’s website explains, “we are an island of wilderness in a sea of development and destruction.” Not exactly, say local officials. After a cursory inspection, Furman says talks between his office and Conway broke down. So on Sept. 19, Furman came back with a warrant and sheriff’s deputies. Inspectors found Conway’s own home lacked minimum water and sewer connections. All of the buildings were constructed mostly of wood milled on site, not the marked, graded lumber required in the building codes. Solar panels run the equipment in Conway’s little office, and a micro-hydroelectric plant installed by students from Appalachian State’s Appropriate Technology Program powers a small workshop. Inspectors say they found wiring and junction boxes that were not up to code.

West Texas chef loses nearly 750 pounds C6 Sunday, August 11, 2013

MIDLAND, Texas (AP) — When Robert Walls graduated from high school in 2000, he weighed 330 pounds. Seven years later, he weighed 940. “I was always a bigger guy, and I gradually started getting bigger,” said Walls, who moved from Kansas to Midland last month to become kitchen manager at Riley’s Bar & Grill. “I had issues just like any other big person did, but I never thought there was anything wrong with me. I was happy being ‘Big Rob.’ But as I started getting bigger and sicker, I started becoming more ashamed.” An aspiring chef, Walls had to leave culinary school because he was too sick. At his peak weight of nearly 960 pounds, he moved to Illinois to take up a graphic arts job. “The job didn’t work out — it got to a point where I couldn’t physically handle the job,” he told the Midland ReporterTelegram. “I didn’t have any family where I was. Before you know it, I found myself homeless.” Walls attempted different diets and weight-loss plans, but the pounds never stayed off. “I would see ‘TV weight loss’ this or ‘this diet’ that,” he said. “I was trying all this different stuff. I lost a couple hundred pounds from different diets, but even then, I couldn’t sustain it. I would lose 200 pounds and then gain 50.” Eventually, Walls ended up in the hospital, where they made the decision to admit him to a nursing home. “I couldn’t go out and work. I couldn’t stand on my feet 10 hours a day,” he said. “It was like being in prison — not being able to do anything for yourself.” Walls was in and out of nursing homes for a few years, a time he described as “very, very lonely.” “I spent a lot of time in those nursing homes by myself, staring at the walls, online chatting, doing graphic design work, even online dating,” he said. “I was very standoffish

with family and friends. I would go months, sometimes years, without talking to family. I would never visit family and friends because I was so ashamed. I went from being a very rah-rah, outgoing, front-of-the-crowd person to being more withdrawn.” But there was an upside to all the loneliness. Though he was stuck in hospital and nursing home beds, Walls decided to continue his education. He obtained a bachelor’s degree in hotel restaurant management and degrees in culinary arts and graphic design. Then, he met two people who he said saved his life.

Ron Goodman and Paige Whitney were both nurses at Walls’ nursing home, and they introduced him to the gastric bypass surgery. “They were telling me how they felt I was too young to be in a nursing home,” Walls said. “I was 27, and I was seeing people die every day. I would go to breakfast with a lady who’s 75 or 80 years old and have a conversation with her, and then I would go look for her at lunch — and she’d be gone. I was living in a place where people go to die.” Walls was approved for the gastric bypass surgery, a procedure that divides the stomach and leads to a smaller functional stomach volume. When accompanied with diet and exercise, patients lose a large amount of weight over time. Dr. Subhash Nagalla, a bariatric surgeon at Odessa Regional Medical Center, said people with a body mass index (BMI) over 40, or over 35 with life-threatening conditions, qualify for the gastric bypass surgery. A normal BMI is between 18.5 and 24.9. First, Walls had to lose more than 100 pounds to prepare for the surgery. When he underwent the five-hour operation in September 2008, he weighed 844 pounds. Weight loss after gastric bypass surgery varies widely depending on how seriously the patient follows a proper diet and exercise, Nagalla said. Most patients typically lose about 40 pounds by the second month after surgery and 100 by the sixth month. By Walls’ first month check-up, he had already lost 100 pounds. However, that weight didn’t come off easily, Walls said. The gastric bypass surgery involves special diets that must be followed, or patients could gain back all the weight they’ve lost. Walls was put on a diet where he was only able to eat 2-ounce portions of food at a time.

Simple Mexico home of surrealist opens to public

MEXICO CITY (AP) — Down a narrow, dead-end street in a middle-class neighborhood of Mexico City, a three-story brick house with white window frames gives up no hint of the bizarre, even shocking images that were dreamed up inside. Luis Bunuel, known as the father of surrealist cinema, lived in the simple, gated house over the last 30 years of his life after settling in Mexico as an exile from post-civil war Spain. For a man who assaulted moviegoers with such shots as an antinfested hand, an eyeball sliced open with a straight razor, and elegant dinners sitting on toilets, Bunuel enjoyed a surprisingly genteel life here. Now, the Spanish government, which bought the house from Bunuel’s family, has opened the house to a public long fascinated with his work. The house can only be visited during events, exhibits or by scheduling a visit with Spain’s culture ministry but the plan is to turn the building into a meeting place for Spanish and Mex-

ican moviemakers, with workshops and occasional exhibits staged to celebrate Spanish-language cinema. The inauguration has been timed to coincide with the 30th anniversary of Bunuel’s death in the Mexican capital. Critics still regard Bunuel as one of cinema’s greatest directors with movies such as “L’Age d’Or” and “That Obscure Object of Desire” pushing the boundaries of both taste and narrative. His Hollywood contemporaries, including directors Alfred Hitchcock and George Cukor, admired the freedom and creativity with which he turned out his 32 films. And his work continues to inspire filmmakers more than 80 years after he launched his career. Director Woody Allen even had Owen Wilson’s character in the 2011 film “Midnight in Paris” meet a young Bunuel and suggest the plot of “The Exterminating Angel,” in which guests are trapped in a room for no apparent reason after an elegant dinner party. Despite that color ful

legacy, Bunuel’s home is being presented as simply as the director left it, and not with the museum treatment given to the much-visited Mexico City abodes of Russian revolutionary Leon Trotsky and surrealist painter Frida Kahlo. In fact, Bunuel never imagined his house as a representation of his work, unlike Mexican director Guiller mo del Toro’s Southern California home, which is filled with images of the monsters and heroes of his films. Novelist Carlos Fuentes once even mocked Bunuel’s interior design, calling it “as impersonal as a dentist’s office,” an ironic barb for a director who spent much of his career lampooning the bourgeoisie. “Bunuel lived like a petite bourgeois,” said Jose de la Colina, co-author of “Luis Bunuel, Don’t Peek Inside,” a series of interviews with the filmmaker. “He wasn’t trying to pretend he was the bohemian or the misunderstood artist, nothing like that. His life was pretty normal and quiet.”

In this Aug. 1 photo, photographs about the life and films of Luis Bunuel hang at the "Casa Bunuel" in Mexico City. Critics still regard Bunuel as one of cinema’s greatest directors with movies such as "L’Age d’Or" and "That Obscure Object of Desire" pushing the boundaries of

Roswell Daily Record

AP Photos In this Aug. 1 photo, the "Casa Bunuel" stands in Mexico City. Down a narrow, dead-end street in a middle-class neighborhood of Mexico City, a three-story brick house with white window Or as Bunuel himself put it in his memoirs: “I only feel good in my house, loyal to my daily routine.” Nonetheless, a visit to the house in the middleclass neighborhood of Del Valle awakens images of the life Bunuel lived inside. The sunlit foyer surely made for an ideal spot to drink the dry martinis that Bunuel loved, before retiring to the living room for a film screening. In the back of the house sits a tiny, cozy kitchen of white tiles and outside, a garden with a grill. A priest who got to know Bunuel, however, said the director would stray from the routine by burning the books of Agatha Christie and other writers in the fireplace. “There was always imagination and humor and good food,” his son, Juan Luis, also a filmmaker, once said of growing up in the house. The house does boast paraphernalia from some Bunuel films such as a movie poster for “The Young and the Damned,” which brutally depicted the poverty endured by Mexico

City’s street children. The film’s script and reel canisters are also on exhibit, along with stills from other films and photos of Bunuel at work. Built in the early 1950s by architect Arturo Saenz, the building is modeled after Madrid’s Student Residence, which was known as a cultural hub that nurtured, among others, Spanish painter Salvador Dali and poet Federico Garcia Lorca, both once close friends of Bunuel. “In a way, he was nostalgic about Spain,” said Javier Espada, the director of the Centro Bunuel in Calanda, Spain, the artist’s hometown. “The house brings to mind the Spanish style. It has the look of the architecture of an exile.” In the 1964 French documentary “A Filmmaker of Our T ime,” a paranoid Bunuel said he hardly ever left the “small house with a garden,” secluding himself from the world because of his deafness. He told people that he built a fence, with shards of broken glass sticking out, around his den to scare away the thieves.

Bunuel’s house opened as a pilot exhibit in December 2011 to mark the 50th anniversary of his film “Viridiana,” which the Vatican once qualified as blasphemous for showing a man almost raping his niece, a novice, and then committing suicide. The home closed again in May 2012 before reopening last week with a round-table discussion featuring filmmakers, journalists and an actress who appeared in his films. Silvia Pinal, one of Bunuel’s muses, said the house looks nothing like it did back when he would invite friends over to share a paella and a martini-like cocktail he called the “Bunueloni.” Despite the house’s somber appearance, it played host to plenty of festivity, she said. “The house will introduce this Bunuel many people don’t know,” Pinal said. “He was not only a director. He was a human being. But where’s the cantina?”

Call the vet, reserve a Breckenridge, Colorado: jet, grab sick pet and go Much more than a ski town

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Designer Jill Zarin had to take a cross-country business trip, but her dog Ginger was sick. She couldn’t leave the Chihuahua behind, so she hired a vet to go with them. In stepped celebrity veterinarian Dr. Cindy Bressler, who launched JetSetVets this year to meet pets’ needs in the air. Bressler has a house call practice in New York and the Hamptons. She took on two partners to start JetSetVets: Los Angeles and Beverly Hills veterinarian Patrick Mahaney and Blue Star Jets, a New Yorkbased company that promises to have a small, medium, large or jumbo jet ready to go anywhere in the world in less than four hours. Together, they are believed to be the country’s only private-jet, ride-along-vet, concierge-pet service. The vets will dispense medicine, change dressings, monitor IVs and drips and handle any other in-flight medical care a pet needs. The company will also prepare animals for trips, apply for travel documents and work with veterinary hospitals as needed in emergencies. Surgery is out — the plane will make an emergency landing and the medical team will get the pet to the nearest animal hospital — but other alternative treatments are available, such as acupuncture, massage, laser treatments and even an on-flight chef to prepare specialty meals. A producer who was traveling to Los Angeles with his epileptic dog hired Bressler to come along in case the dog had a seizure and needed medication. The dog had only one seizure and it lasted only a few minutes. One client’s cat was diagnosed with cancer. It needed radiation only available in Colorado, so the cat’s New York owner, his assistant, the ailing cat, the cat’s feline companion and Bressler made the trip. At the hotel, the cat’s owner had the presidential suite remodeled to resemble his New York apartment and hired the hotel chef to cook the cat gourmet meals when chemotherapy and radiation treatments zapped its appetite. The owner even had his cat’s litter airlifted to Colorado so it would be familiar. Bressler returned after 10 days with the cat, she said. Zarin, who spent four years as one of the “The Real Housewives of New York City” and

is now a designer for Skweez Couture Shapewear, met Bressler on that recent business trip. Zarin said she was worried 9year-old Ginger would lose weight and have problems with altitude. “Imagine if she lost 10 or 20 percent of her body weight. If she started vomiting or got diarrhea, she could get very sick very quickly,” she said. During the seven-hour, one-stop flight from New York to Los Angeles, Bressler treated Ginger for hemorrhagic gastroenteritis with an IV and medication. Bressler has since become Ginger’s regular vet, though the dog hasn’t been that sick since. “My dog is the most important thing to me and flies with me everywhere I go,” Zarin said. On commercial flights, Ginger is at Zarin’s feet under the passenger seat in front of her. In the past decade, Zarin and Ginger have each logged about a quarter-million commercial and private sky miles, Zarin said, and Ginger likes her carrier so much that she sometimes curls up in it in the closet when they are home. Bressler started Hamptons Canine Concierge last year. She is also the concierge vet at several hotels, including the Pierre, Mandarin Oriental and Gramercy Park, while Mahaney is a certified veterinary acupuncturist and a certified veterinary journalist. He writes about pet health in Patrick’s Blog and several other online ventures and does vet work in Iquitos, Peru, and remote villages on the Amazon River. He’s still awaiting his first flight. Todd Rome, president of Blue Star Jets, said the company has no size limit on animals. The company has flown horses, exotic fish and monkeys and even transported seals once. The company, which has been around for 13 years and is the world’s largest air charter broker, has done over $1 billion in sales, Rome said. While the service is in a class by itself, so is the cost. Renting a jet can cost between $1,000 and $12,000 an hour. Bressler and Mahaney charge $200 an hour. Nurses, chefs, medical equipment, drugs, and other services, as well as added jet-related costs, are extra. Most times, Bressler said, the best flights are those when nothing happens.

rld-class fishing. Breckenridge may have the best combination of all those attributes. Known for its massive ski resort, Breckenridge also has plenty to offer this time of year, with a wide range of summer and fall activities, reasonable prices and a low-key vibe, all set in the picturesque Colorado Rockies. “The weather is great, it’s clean and it’s well-kept, the prices are not exorbitant and you can find anything that you want to do,” said Monroe Buford, who’s from Gulf Shores, Ala., but has spent summers in Breckenridge with his wife, Sue, since 1994. “It’s just an ideal place for people who like to get out of the heat in the summertime.” Located about 90 minutes from Denver, Breckenridge was originally founded as a mining town during the mid-19th century gold rush. It became a resort town in the 1960s with the opening of the ski area, which attracts more than 1 million skiers every year. Over the years, the town locals call Breck became a summer and fall destination as well, drawing visitors from around the world. It’s easy to see why. Breckenridge sits along the Blue River, just above where it feeds into Dillon Reservoir, and below the towering 14,000-foot (4,300-meter) peaks of the Ten-Mile Range, so panoramic views are visible from pretty much anywhere in town. The weather during the summer is nearly perfect during the day and with just-the-right coolness at night, though watch out for the afternoon thunderstorms that often crop up. In the fall, before the first snows arrive in late October, the temperatures are still warm enough for outdoor activities and the nighttime lows above the unbearable range. Within the town are dozens of shops, a wide variety of restaurants — from a crepe stand to steaks and seafood — that offer non-peak season deals and an art district that has the expected high-end galleries along with places that teach classes and have hands-on, take-it-withyou workshops. Many of the shops and restaurants fea-

ture local products, including beer from the Breckenridge Brewery and bourbon from the Breckenridge Distillery, which offers daily tours. And the locals don’t act like locals. Friendly and laid-back, they give off a “You’re-one-of-us” vibe to visitors instead of treating them like trespassers. “It’s a very, local, homey feel,” said Jessie Unruh of GoBreck, also known as the Breckenridge Resort Chamber, which helps promote tourism. “We treat everybody, the locals, visitors, like family and go out of our way to help people out. There’s nothing better than coming to a town and doing what the locals do instead of just wandering around and hoping you’ll find something interesting to do.” What makes Breckenridge so much fun is the multitude of activities. Hiking and biking trails crisscross the mountains and families often ride cruiser bikes to get around town. The Blue River is a great place to fish and the waters below Dillon Dam are some of the best in the state for trout and kokanee salmon during their annual run. The lake is great for sailing or riding in pontoon boats, and there are numerous golf courses to choose from, including the Jack Nicklaus-designed Breckenridge Golf Club on the north side of town. There’s also the Breckenridge Summer Fun Park at the top of the gondola, featuring a mountain roller coaster, slides and a chair lift ride to above 11,000 feet (3,350 meters) for scenic views. For the adventurous types, there’s rock climbing and rafting, and, to recover, numerous spa options around town that offer deals during the summer. And for something a little different, Snow Cap Sled Dogs — — offers summer dog sled rides that include a tour of the compound, meet and greet with their huskies and a tow through the woods with one of their teams. “We mainly go hiking these days, but there are so many things that you can do around town and most them you can do them all in one day,” said Buford. “It’s a great place to go for the summertime.”
