Doña Ana Co. issues gay marriage licenses JILL MCLAUGHLIN RECORD STAFF WRITER



Doña Ana County’s clerk began issuing same-sex marriage licenses Wednesday in a bold move, saying it was time to end the wait. Clerk Lynn Ellins sent a surprise email about his decision to county clerks across the state before opening his doors. “I was shocked,” said Chaves County Clerk Dave Kunko. Ellins said he had followed lawsuits pending in

Kintigh: Language of laws needs tightening JESSICA PALMER RECORD STAFF WRITER


A rate hike that could cost an average Xcel Energy customer $23 more a month starting in January is still under review by the state Public Regulation Commission in Santa Fe, officials said Wednesday. Xcel Energy officials visited with Roswell business and city leaders earlier in the day to discuss updates to the company’s transmission systems, improvements to coal and natural gas plants and additions to renewable energy acquisitions. “We’re seeing infrastructure that needs to be

Chaves County Sheriff’s Detective and for mer Republican State Representative Dennis Kintigh said often the original problem with laws lies with the way they are written. “This is the responsibility of the Legislature. They need to act. The language needs to be tightened up,” he said. The higher courts often refer to vague language in the statute and try to provide clarification, as they did with the definition of “at the scene” as it pertains to battery of a household member, a misdemeanor. In New Mexico, misdemeanor

arrests can only be made if an officer actually witnesses the offense. The law provides for two exceptions: domestic violence and shoplifting. Both are intended to protect the victim. In the last year, the higher courts overturned that protection in the case of domestic violence. Kintigh noted the higher courts interpretation of “at the scene” requires the offender must be physically present for an immediate arrest to be made.

There is no possibility that we will do that.” A few couples had wandered in to the Chaves County clerk’s office seeking a license after Sandoval County clerk issued 64 licenses in 2004. “We’re not going to do it,” Kunko said. “We’ll send them to Doña Ana County.” By noon, some 15-18 couples sought the samesex licenses from Doña Ana. Ellins expected many more Wednesday afternoon. The City of Roswell came under fire by gayrights supporters in midJuly after one councilor proposed a resolution that would have declared marriage as a union between a man and a woman. The resolution failed in committee. Ellins received support following his action, he said. “I’ve received phone calls and emails from lots of people who are pleased that we are doing this,”

Ellins said. “I haven’t received any negative reaction, but that would not surprise me at all.” King said he would not take any action against Ellins. But his position is that the current state law is unconstitutional. “We previously advised that is was not a good idea to issue the marriage licenses to same-sex couples due to the uncertain status of state law,” King wrote in a statement. “We do not have authority over county clerks.” the situation As evolves, King would determine his response at the appropriate time, he said in the statement. After Doña Ana County’s action, the American Civil Liberties Union of New Mexico filed an emergency request with the state’s 2nd Judicial District Court to allow two women to legally marry in Santa Fe County. The group claimed one of the women suffered from terminally-ill brain cancer. “We agree that it’s unconstitutional to deny same-sex couples the ability to marry in New Mexico,” said ACLU-NM Legal Director Laura

replaced and growth at the same time,” said regional Xcel spokesman Wes Reeves. “We’re updating and upgrading at the same time.” In order to pay for new investments needed to meet growing customer needs and purchases of solar and wind energy to meet New Mexico’s renewable energy standard, Xcel asked the state’s PRC to authorize a 14.4 percent increase in customer rates overall. The utility contends that even with the increase, customers will still pay below the current state and national average bills. The rate increase was submitted in December 2012. “We’re still in the review process,” said NMPRC spokesman Arthur Bishop. “At this point, we’re receiving information from interested parties. All of those things have to be reviewed.” A hearings examiner has been assigned to the case, Bishop said. “These cases do take time in order to make sure that due process is done, in accordance to the law,” Bishop said.

If all cases were consolidated, a ruling by a district court judge in Santa Fe could go directly to the state Supreme Court for review.

Activists and the opposition leadership gave widely varying death tolls, ranging from as low as 136 to as high as 1,300. But even the most conservative tally would make it the deadliest alleged chemical attack in Syria’s civil war. For months now, the rebels, along with the United States, Britain and France, have accused the Syrian government of using chemical weapons in its campaign to

Thursday, August 22, 2013

try to snuff out the rebellion against President Bashar Assad that began in March 2011. The regime and its ally, Russia, have denied the allegations, pinning the blame on the rebels.

The murky nature of the purported attacks, and the dif ficulty of gaining access to the sites amid the carnage of Syria’s war, has made it impossible to verify the claims. After months of negotiations, a U.N. team finally arrived in Damascus on Sunday to begin its investigation into the alleged use of chemical weapons in Syria.

Ellins said if the state declares his action to allow the issuance of same-sex marriage licenses illegal, he fully expected that if the cases go before the state Supreme Court, the court would rule same-sex marriages legal.

“If it should work out, it works out,” Ellins said. “Otherwise then, these people are not legally married and they are back to where they were.” The Associated Press contributed to this report.

ty by almost 10 percent in recent years and about 50 percent over the past decade led to the need for new facilities, according to Xcel. A wind farm is planned for construction near Elida, Reeves said. The site could save $590 million in fuel costs in the future, he said. Xcel management also provided local officials Wednesday with an explanation of the utility’s plan to survey its comprehensive field of transmission lines using helicopters and laser technology. “The distribution side continues to grow,” said Seth Thomason, director of business customer relations in Amarillo. “We’re spending a lot of capital in serving our territory. Our goal is to do expansion but keep things competitive.” Thomason said the company expects to spend $7 billion in capital investments by 2018. Xcel is working to clean up its coal plants, Thomason said. “We are going to do more work cleaning up our plant, but we need more time to do that.” Xcel just completed a new gas-fired turbine at one plant that can start up in 10 minutes, he said. “It’s a big deal,” Thomason said.

said. “The despondency from in November was huge,” Billingsley said. “Now, it has tur ned ar ound 180 degr ees. People are so positive. We are super enthused about going forward in 2014.” A new push to organize the state’s voters through a “boots-on-theground” effort is one way the party will work to tur n ar ound the push made lately by the progr essive wing of the Democratic Party, Billingsley said. Eight weeks ago, the Democratic Party placed paid workers into counties and precincts with the objective to go doorto-door and begin to increase progressive voters, he said. “They ar e working within those counties to tur n them even mor e ‘blue,’” he said. “It is incumbent upon our (county Republican) Par-

ties to get active within our precincts.” The problem is especially serious in New Mexico and that needs to be addressed urgently, he said. “If we don’t get this done, we won’t win another election in the next decade or two,” Billingsley said. The state Republican Party will go live with a new database system within the next two months, followed by web sites and later by smartphone apps for campaign workers. The new technology will allow party workers to identify voters and demographics. New Mexico will become one of the first states to utilize the tools, outside of Republican parties in Oregon, he said. The program will have some 500 micro-targeting points for each person in the state, based on technology used by retail

chains to identify shopper preferences. “It’s not new or intrusive,” Billingsley said. “Retailers have been doing this for about 15 years. It’s a very positive thing, set up exclusively for the state of New Mexico.” The party will launch its new grassroots effort and focus on hand shakes, meet and greets and boots on the ground, Billingsley said. A number of strong candidates are already preparing for the next election. “We’ve identified a number of house candidates that we’re very close in the per for mance matrix in very targeted districts,” he said. “It’s something the Republican Party is looking at heavily. “We’ve identified a number of key candidates in all (state and congressional) positions.”

Good times roll during Chamber’s Business After Hours JESSICA PALMER RECORD STAFF WRITER

J.P. Stone Community Bank, 1901 N. Main St., hosted the Roswell Chamber of Commerce Business After Hours, Tuesday evening. The theme was Mardi Gras, or Fat Tuesday, Roswell style. Guests were given the typical brightly colored beads, masks and funny hats. More than 100 people attended. Bank President Kenneth Berry told the audience that they don’t nor mally give masks to

those who enter the bank. The Sunshine Jazz Band provided the entertainment, playing Dixieland for appreciative guests. Peppers provided the catering. Business After Hours is a regular event where members of the Roswell Chamber of Commerce can market their businesses. It presents an opportunity to network with other business owners and professionals throughout the community. Usually, Business After Hours is held the third Thursday of the month. Occasionally, the Chamber will have two

events per month. Chamber Executive Director Dorrie FaubusMcCarty gave a preview of coming attractions. Upcoming events include: a second Business After Hours at Easter n New Mexico Medical Center on Aug. 29 and the Chamber’s annual Tailgate Party on Oct. 17, which is held in the Chamber parking lot at 131 W. Second St. Already in the planning stages, members of the Chamber will barbecue food and give people in the community a chance to meet other enterprising

businesses and entrepreneurs. The Chamber of Commerce has its fingers in many pies. The organization was founded in 1918 to help businesses in Roswell. It offers seminars on everything from crime prevention for retailers and hotels to a popular series that teaches retail businesses how to deal with the new health care insurance laws. Coming Sept. 26 is a marketing seminar with two sessions, one starting at 7:20 a.m., for early risers, and the other at 2:30 p.m.

Two people were taken to the hospital after an accident that occurred at the intersection of Richardson and Second streets. According to police reports, a maroon Ford Windstar mini-van ran a red light, running into a gold Dodge Durango. Citations are pending.

must present an affidavit of criminal complaint to the courts and have them signed before they can make an arrest. In that span of time, further injuries can occur. Another decision based on State vs. Pavilus was released in January 2013. In this case, Gerard Pavilus was convicted by a jury of second-degree murder, kidnapping (second- and firstdegree), aggravated burglary and aggravated assault, after Pavilus broke into his estranged wife’s home, kidnapped the boyfriend and killed him. He retur ned later and kidnapped her, so she could see the body of her boyfriend. During the trial, the district court threw out the charge of aggravated burglary since, according to New Mexico statute 40-3-3 “.… neither [husband nor wife] can be excluded from the other’s dwelling.” The appellate court upheld this decision. Thus, charges of burglary did not apply. The law, initiated in 1907, erodes protections for those who are going through a contentious divorce. The original law, enacted to deal with property settlements, remains intact and provides an open door by which an abusive spouse

may enter a home.

“The public needs to decide if we need changes in the judiciary and they need to address their concerns to the Legislature,” said Kintigh.

Despite frustration, most officers prefer to be philosophical. CCSO Lt. Daniel Ornelas said: “He (the batterer) can still be arrested even if he’s gone. I’ll just get the victim to a safe place and file the criminal complaint.” CCSO Lt. Britt Snyder agreed that actions could still be taken by law enforcement. “We will get the victim out of there first. The protection of the victim is paramount.”

Court interpretations to statutes have a direct relationship not only to how the trial can be conducted, but to the type of charges leveled against a suspect. Snyder said higher court decisions have influenced current cases. When the CCSO prepared to arrest the couple for child abuse, they learned that a high court decision decreed filth and poverty were not sufficient grounds to charge a couple with child abuse. They were able to proffer charges only because the juvenile had been barricaded in her bedroom. “If these were pets rather than children,” Kintigh said, “they would be taken away.”

KBIM Radio is celebrating two important anniversaries this year. June marked 60 years since the station first hit the airwaves. “We are a heritage radio station,” said News director Tom A. Ruiz. A heritage station is the ter m used for an AM radio station that has broadcast in a specific format for a long period of time. “We applied for our FCC license in 1951,” said Don Niccum, who is on the air daily starting

at 9 a.m. “The station started broadcasting in 1953.” He explained that when the station first applied for its license, they were supposed to be based in Clovis, but the license through for came Roswell. “We are the oldest continuing station in Roswell and in Chaves County,” said station manager Kevin Bonner. KBIM is also one of the oldest stations in New Mexico. “KOB was first, but we’re one of the top ten,” Bonner said. In addition, this year is also the anniversary of its public services program,

Round Table. Niccum said: “Round Table tur ned 40 this year. It started in 1974.” Bonner joked that at the age of 60, in two years, the station could retire. However, there is little likelihood of that. September will see the third anniversary of KBIM going country, as Roswell’s “Country Giant” station. What have they done to commemorate the event? “Nothing, really. The governor said she wanted to do something to mark the occasion, but we have been too busy with the day-to-day running of the business,” Bonner said.

Car damaged in attempt to get inside Criminal damage

Immigrants help the housing market, says new study

An old friend living in my former neighborhood said he’d witnessed a wave of home buyers, all undocumented immigrants. He considered this a step up from the slumlords and crack houses we worked to get rid of. Furthermore, the new occupants were serious about home improvement. “They may not paint their houses the same colors we would have, but they’ve fixed them up, built fences and planted flowers,” he said. We represented the previous wave – young professionals with modest incomes who thought we could turn around a stagnant area, one house at a time. We did, sort of, but the pace of change lagged the pace of crime. Most of us gave up and moved on. My friend stayed because he liked his house, and it was close to work. A new study shows this latest wave isn’t an isolated case. Immigrants, 40 million of them,




have added $3.7 trillion to U.S. housing wealth and helped “stabilize less desirable communities where home prices are declining or would otherwise have declined.” This is according to Americas Society/Council of the Americas and Partnership for a New American Economy. In case you doubt the sources, have you noticed that the big home-improvement stores feature bilingual signs? Many retailers have joined them. To business, everybody’s money is green. Previous studies have shown that immigrants, who are typical-

ly working age, will help fill the labor gap of retiring boomers. The immigrants are also good consumers. Spend some time in Walmart (I try not to), and you’ll hear multiple languages being spoken. Why? Because to them it’s the retail Promised Land with goods that are far cheaper than they could buy in their home countries. Their collective demand for housing and their purchasing power “bolster the value of homes,” says the study, and “they shift demand for housing within metro areas toward neighborhoods that had fallen out of favor.” As those neighborhoods stabilize, they become more attractive to U.S.-born workers. In other words, the wrong side of the tracks becomes just another place to live without pricing other people out of the market. My wave of urban pioneers, on the other hand, could have resulted in gentrification that would have

Roswell Daily Record

made the ’hood less affordable. The biggest impacts were “in thriving Sun Belt cities that remain affordable and in declining Rust Belt cities.” The study shows the big increases in New Mexico to be Bernalillo, Santa Fe and Doña Ana counties, with foreign-born populations of 11, 12.9 and 12.8 percent in 2010, followed by Lea and San Juan counties. Nationally, immigration had the biggest impact on the housing market in the Houston area. The study also suggests that Chicago might have looked more like Detroit without the arrival of 600,000 immigrants since 1970, taking up the slack of the 900,000 U.S.born Americans departing. Now we come to the “yes, buts.” Yes, but don’t immigrants gravitate to thriving communities? They do, but they also go to communities where they have a social network of fellow immigrants, and in many cases, this is the

deciding factor because it leads to jobs, housing, friends and comfort. The study analyzed the impact of immigrants who chose this path (a statistical technique known as instrumental variable analysis). Yes, but American houses have gotten bigger. The study accounts for the age of homes, vacancy rates, market conditions and the number of units in a county, along with the characteristics of a county. Yes, but what about the housing bubble and burst? The study covers 1970 to 2010; the housing bubble and burst are a small slice of that period. Even so, the study didn’t use pricing data between 2001 and early 2006, the bubble’s maximum stretch. As we debate immigration, it’s helpful to look at numbers and realities. We might be surprised at the transformation of some of our worst neighborhoods without one dollar of government help. © New Mexico News Services 2013

Shine light on NSA

A bombshell report by The Washington Post last Friday on National Security Agency spying has reinforced fears that the biggest problem with such domestic surveillance programs is that we don’t know what we don’t know. According to the Post, a May 2012 audit by the NSA found 2,776 incidents in the previous 12 months of “unauthorized collection, storage, access to or distribution of legally protected communications.” Most involved unauthorized surveillance of Americans or foreign intelligence targets in the United States, both of which are restricted by federal law. The Post noted that most infractions were “unintended” and not “malicious.” Nevertheless, they involved listening to people’s phone calls or inappropriately reading their emails — exactly what top federal officials, including President Obama, have been saying hasn’t happened. The only reason the nation knows of the violations is because former NSA contractor Edward Snowden leaked the information to the Post. The newspaper said the details are not routinely shared with Congress or the secret Federal Intelligence Surveillance Court. Defenders of the NSA surveillance argue the infractions are relatively few and minor, that mistakes happen and that they should be tolerated because the program is valuable to national security. But even that claim rests not on proof or knowledge, but on faith and trust. That’s because there is little or no transparency and oversight of the data-mining. It is not subject to our constitutional checks and balances. Gen. Keith Alexander, the current head of the NSA, told Congress in June that data from these programs provided government with “critical leads” to prevent more than 50 potential terrorist events in more than 20 countries. But he offered no evidence. We’re asked to take the NSA’s word for it. It hasn’t been verified or otherwise put in context by an outside party (i.e., what constitutes a “critical lead”?). U.S. District Judge Reggie Walton, the chief of FISC, which is supposed to provide oversight of federal spying programs, told the Post that his court “does not have the capacity to investigate issues of noncompliance.” Basically, the court has to trust the government to report its mistakes. According to the Post, “in one instance, the NSA decided that it need not report the unintended surveillance of Americans. A notable example in 2008 was the interception of a ‘large number’ of calls placed from Washington when a programming error confused the U.S. area code 202 for 20, the international dialing code for Egypt.” Americans are in the dark about domestic surveillance, and are asked to trust the program’s overseers, who willingly obfuscate. This blanket secrecy is being used to cover up incompetence at best, and nefarious unlawfulness at worst. This inhibits accountability, endangers our privacy and is anathema to our system of government. Congress must shine some light on the NSA. Guest Editorial The Panama City News Herald DEAR DOCTOR K: My joints hurt. Does that mean I have osteoarthritis? DEAR READER: Your knee aches from time to time, or maybe your fingers don’t seem as nimble as they used to be. That doesn’t mean you have osteoarthritis — but you might. There are many different kinds of arthritis. They all damage the cartilage, the flexible tissue lining joints. Every joint is a spot where two (or more) bones meet. The cartilage in a joint keeps bone from rubbing against bone. Osteoarthritis is the most common type of arthritis. I am one of its victims: It ruined my right hip and required a total hip replacement. Medical research is starting to understand what leads to the slow degeneration of cartilage

Despite millions already spent on modifications, fully functional coalfueled power plants are being shut down — not because they are not needed but due to ideology. In fact, the Energy Information Administration predicts that electricity demand will continue to grow as we plug in to electricity that is becoming increasingly expensive. One such example is the

As the condition gets worse, the pain becomes more continuous. The joint may be mildly tender much of the time, and movement may cause a crackling or grating sensation. Some people have continual joint pain that is bad enough to interfere with sleep. People with osteoarthritis often have it in more than one joint. It is most common in the knee, hip, lower back, neck and certain finger joints. If you suspect you have osteoarthritis, see your doctor. There’s no definitive test for it. Your doctor will make the diag-

regulations. The Albuquerque Journal reports that there will be “rate hikes to allow PNM to recover costs associated with the changes at San Juan.” The San Juan Generating Station is scheduled for closure in 2017, but the process of replacing the 340 megawatts that will be lost has already started. PNM wants to fill the need with a new natural-gas plant at the same site and by bringing in more nuclear power from the Palo Verde Generating Station in Arizona, in which PNM is already part owner. Environmentalists oppose PNM’s plan and are pushing for more

nosis based on your description of symptoms, a physical examination and perhaps some additional tests. Prepare for your appointment by making a list of your symptoms and the circumstances under which they occur. Do you notice them during or after a particular activity? Are they worse first thing in the morning? Your symptoms — what they are, when they first began and how they’ve changed over time — provide important clues for your doctor. During the physical exam, your doctor will watch how you move and will look at your joints for specific abnormalities. The bony enlargement of a joint without swelling is a classic sign of osteoarthritis. The doctor will

renewables such as wind and solar — which will “drive costs way up.” But the problem with renewables isn’t just the cost or the inter mittency. The problem is that environmentalists also oppose what it takes to get the natural resources needed to build, for example, a wind turbine. To build one 3 megawatt wind turbine, according to the Northwest Mining Association, takes 335 tons of steel and 4.7 tons of copper. (Replacing the 340 megawatts of electricity generated at San Juan with

also move your joints through their range of motion to detect any pain, resistance, unusual sounds or instability. Your doctor may also order an imaging test, such as an X-ray. If you do have osteoarthritis, treatment will help you manage your pain and preserve the function of your affected joints. Most people with osteoarthritis just require pain medicines. But when a joint is badly damaged and the pain can’t be controlled, joint replacement surgery can fix the problem. It surely has for me.

Keeping your heart healthy in your 50s and 60s Roswell Daily Record


This is part two in a three-part series on cardiac health at each stage of adulthood During your 50s and 60s, gender can be a major factor in your risk for developing certain types of heart disease. Many people at this age often think of heart disease as primarily a “man’s disease” or a “woman’s disease” and fail to realize that though heart disease itself is not gender-specific, it affects men and women very differently, especially during middle age. Heart disease is the number one killer of women. One in three American women dies from it and two-thirds of women who have heart attacks never fully recover. The age at which women are generally considered at a higher risk for heart disease is 55. This risk continues to grow with age. Women in this age range typically

begin experiencing the symptoms of menopause. Because their bodies produce less estrogen, menopause greatly increases their risk of heart disease. Women who go through early menopause are twice as likely to develop heart disease as women of the same age who have not yet gone through menopause. It is extremely important for women, especially those who have already experienced some form of heart disease, to take preventative action. By taking a proactive approach to cardiovascular health, women

can greatly reduce their likelihood of heart disease. Women should regularly check their blood pressure and cholesterol levels. Keeping track of body mass index and waist circumference can also be important to heart health. Body fat building around the abdomen is a major risk factor for heart disease, and a waist circumference of more than 35 inches is considered high-risk. Women also need to continue eating healthily and try to get moderate exercise for at least 30 minutes a day. Although a woman’s risk of

This is true for squash, pumpkins, melons, and some other garden plants. Are there any female flowers present? If not, it will be a matter of waiting.

the case, then hand pollinating may be needed. You can transfer pollen from male flowers to the female flowers either by using a male blossom you pick from the plant, a cotton swab, or small paint b r u sh . S i n c e t h e ma l e blossom is not going to set fruit, that may be the best way to go. Do this early in the mor ning before 9 or 10 a.m. The pollen does not last very long, especially in the heat.

developing heart disease increases with age, it is never as high as a man’s risk. As the number one life threat to men, heart disease is responsible for 28 percent of male deaths. A fourth of these deaths occur before the age of 65. If a relative has had heart disease before the age of 55, it greatly increases a man’s risk of also developing heart disease. One of the main risk factors for men in their 50s and 60s is high blood pressure, also known as hypertension. High blood pressure is often considered a “silent killer” because one-third of people with the disorder do not realize they have it. Uncontrolled, it can lead directly to stroke, heart attack, heart failure, or kidney failure. It is especially important for men to regularly check their blood pressure and keep track of significant changes. Blood pressure can be easily controlled with medication, but if left undiagnosed, can be deadly. In addition to paying attention

wind would take 113 three-megawatt wind turbines — or 37,855 tons of steel and 1,598 tons of copper. Since each megawatt produced requires 198 acres, 67,320 acres would be covered with wind turbines. And these figures assume “nameplate” capacity — which means they are producing electricity 24/7. Realistically, wind turbines produce power at 25-30 percent capacity. Real numbers for steel, copper, land, etc., would be 3 to 4 times higher.) Most people don’t think about where the metals and minerals come from or what it takes to recover or shape them. Steel is an iron-based alloy that requires coal in the production process. It takes about 400 pounds of coal to produce a ton of steel. Unfortunately, the Obama administration — which is closely aligned with the environmentalists’ agenda — doesn’t seem to understand this. They are pushing for more wind turbines — with Secretary of the Interior Sally Jewel, “gearing up to make offshore wind energy a hallmark of her tenure.” At the same time, environmentalists are coal’s adversaries. Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., following an Aug. 1 White House meeting, stated: “You cannot describe this any differently than as a war on coal, and not just in West Virginia or the U.S. but on a global scale. They’re using every tool they have to destroy the most abundant, reliable and affordable resource that we have.” In Wisconsin, G-Tec has begun soil testing with the goal of mining iron. If results show the process is safe, it will construct the mine in a region where mining was once the main source of revenue. Many of those who live in the economically depressed towns nearby are descendants of miners, who, according to a Fox News report: “support the company’s efforts and look forward to the potential for much-needed jobs and growth in the region.” Yet, environmentalists are intent on blocking the project and have gone to such extremes as death threats, destroying equipment, attacking workers and barricading

to risk factors, men should take preventative action. Some studies have found that taking a baby aspirin regularly can greatly reduce a man’s chance for a heart attack. It is important to consult a doctor before starting any type of aspirin regimen. Because men naturally tend to gain weight around their abdomen, it is important that they pay attention to what they eat, maintain a healthy weight, and try to get 30 minutes of moderate exercise per day. While the risk factors differ for men and women, it is important for people in their 50s and 60s to realize heart disease can affect anyone, regardless of gender. Being aware of risk factors and warning signs saves lives. Eastern New Mexico Medical Center is dedicated to your health and wellness.

roads. An attempt to mine copper in Alaska is facing similar opposition — albeit this time through the EPA rather than acts of eco-terrorism. The proposed Pebble Mine would potentially bring up to $180 million in annual taxes and revenues to the state of Alaska. The Pebble Partnership has spent 10 years and more than $400 million in research, studies, and fieldwork but has not yet submitted any plan. However, the EPA has spent more than $2 million in an unnecessary and controversial draft watershed assessment of the Pebble Mine. According to the Daily Caller, the EPA and environmental groups argue that the agency has the authority to preemptively veto a permit. Frances Beinecke, president of the Natural Resources Defense Council reports that Pebble Mine opponents urged the EPA to conduct the assessment. The war on coal, and the efforts to block the iron and copper mines, are just a few examples of environmental opposition to extracting the metals and minerals that are needed to build the wind turbines they support. Nearly 300 power plants are scheduled to be shut down in the next few years. Combine opposition environmentalists have to any form of electricity generation that is effective, efficient and economical, and their opposition to mining what is needed to build the renewables they want and there can only be one conclusion: environmentalists want you powerless.

GENERAL/OBITUARIES fin on March 19, 1965, in Roswell, N.M. He owned and operated Sam’s TV until retiring in 2010. He was a member of the NRA, loved hunting, watching the Dallas Cowboys and riding his Harley. He led singing at the New Deal Church of Christ, but his main love was his family and grandchildren. He was preceded in death by a brother and four sisters. He is survived by his wife, Ann Herron, of New Deal, TX; and three children: Robert Herron and wife, Angela, of Colorado Springs, CO, Amy Pharr and husband, Paul, and Tommy Herron and wife, Melody, all of New Deal, TX; eight grandchildren; mother -in-law, Donnie Griffin, of New Deal, TX; a brother, Charlie Herron, and wife, Diane; two sisters: Betty Walker, of Roswell, N.M., and Vicki Larson and husband, Larry, of Lubbock, TX.

Ruth Clem-Quesenberry

Funeral services will be held for Ruth Clem-Quesenberry, 91, of Roswell, at 1 p.m. Thursday, August 22, 2013, at Gateway Church followed by a graveside at 3:30 p.m. at Twin Oaks Cemetery in Artesia, NM. Ruth passed away on Monday, August 19, 2013. Vada Ruth Coleman was bor n to Rosa and Loyd “Doc” Coleman in Coryell County, of Texas, on October 19, 1921. She spent her early years

surviving the Great Depression on the Coleman homestead in Levita, Texas, before the family hit the road to follow Doc as he worked the Texas oil fields. Ruth, along with her sister, Florene, and their parents, lived many years in a large military-style tent before they went “big time,” building a 19-foot travel trailer to continue their travels through west Texas and southeaster n New Mexico. The family lived for a time in Artesia, New Mexico, where Ruth met and married Howard Dee “Jack” Clem just before the beginning of World War II. The faithful wife followed her husband from base to base during his training until he was shipped out to serve as a SeaBee in the Pacific front. Upon his return at the end of the war, Ruth and Jack settled in Artesia, where she worked side-byside with him as they established Clem Plumbing, opened Artesia’s first Firestone Store and brought Culligan Soft Water to the area; all while she raised three children

and led many community groups. The couple was on the move once more, this time to Portales, New Mexico, after their youngest child graduated from high school. They briefly lived in Tucumcari, New Mexico, before Jack retired and the two re-settled in Roswell, New Mexico. After her husband’s death in 1979, Ruth filled her time with grandchildren, singing tenor in a senior citizen quartet and strumming the ukulele until she met Don Quesenberry during a church service where, much to her surprise, Cupid struck again. The octogenarians shared a love for travel, so when Don asked Ruth if she’d prefer a wedding ring or a trip to Hawaii to celebrate their marriage, Ruth shouted for him to buy the tickets and she notified her children with a poem by email of the upcoming wedding, as she packed for ten days on sunny shores. Ruth and Don continued with many travel adventures over the following years until diminishing health grounded them.

Then, on Monday evening, August 19, 2013, Ruth quietly took her final journey from this Earth to the arms of the Savior she both loved and served. Ruth leaves behind her husband of ten years, Don Quesenberry, along with her children: Dekka Ruth House and her husband, Joseph House, Vicki Lee Shaw and her husband, Dewayne Shaw, and Lloyd Burr Clem and his wife, Bee J Clem. Ruth’s grandchildren include: Todd House and his wife, Geneva, Susan House, Amy D. Shaw-Jackson and her husband, T ripp, as well as Farrell Clem and his wife, Sue, and Shelley Bristow and her husband, Randy. She also enjoyed seven greatgrandchildren and one great-great grandchild.

For leak, Manning gets 35 years — stiffest punishment

The military judge overseeing Manning's trial sentenced Bradley Manning to 35 years in prison for giving U.S. secrets to WikiLeaks.

FORT MEADE, Md. (AP) — Army Pfc. Bradley Manning stood at attention in his crisp dress uniform Wednesday and learned the price he will pay for spilling an unprecedented trove of gover nment secrets: up to 35 years in prison, the stiffest punishment ever handed out in the U.S. for leaking to the media. Flanked by his lawyers, Manning, 25, showed no reaction as military judge Col. Denise Lind announced the sentence without explanation in a proceeding that lasted just a few minutes. A gasp could be heard among the spectators, and one woman buried her face in her hands. Then, as guards hurried Manning out of the courtroom, about a half-dozen supporters shouted from the back: “We’ll keep fighting for you, Bradley!” and “You’re our hero!” With good behavior and credit for the more than three years he has been held, Manning could be out in as little as seven years, said his lawyer, David Coombs. The soldier was also demoted and will be dishonorably discharged. The sentencing fired up the long-running debate over whether Manning was a whistleblower or a traitor for giving more than 700,000 classified military and diplomatic documents, plus battlefield footage, to the anti-secrecy website WikiLeaks. By volume alone, it was the biggest leak of classified

material in U.S. history, bigger even than the Pentagon Papers a generation ago. In a statement from WikiLeaks London, founder Julian Assange decried Manning’s trial and conviction as “an affront to basic concepts of Western justice.” But he called the sentence a “significant tactical victory” because the soldier could be paroled so quickly. Manning could have gotten 90 years behind bars. Prosecutors asked for at least 60 as a warning to other soldiers, while Manning’s lawyer suggested he get no more than 25, because some of the documents he leaked will be declassified by then. Military prosecutors had no immediate comment on the sentence, and the White House said only that any request for a presidential pardon would be considered “like any other application.” The case was part of an unprecedented string of prosecutions brought by the U.S. government in a crackdown on security breaches. The Obama administration has charged seven people with leaking to the media; only three people were prosecuted under all previous presidents combined. Manning, an Army intelligence analyst from Crescent, Okla., digitally copied and released Iraq and Afghanistan battlefield reports and State Department cables while working in 2010 in Iraq. He also leaked video of a 2007

utive director of Somos Un Pueblo Unido, a Santa Febased group that opposes efforts to stop licenses for immigrants. New Mexico is among 11 states with laws to allow immigrants, regardless of their immigration status, to obtain a driver’s license or driving privilege card, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures. However, most of those laws haven’t taken effect yet. Washington and New Mexico have long offered the licenses to immigrants, and have the broadest policies in the country because the same license granted to a U.S. citizen is available to

immigrants, including those here illegally. In contrast to New Mexico’s double-digit decline this year, Washington state has seen a 5 percent drop in first-time licenses for people without a Social Security number, according to the state’s Department of Licensing. There were 8,467 licenses issued in the first six months of the year in Washington. In New Mexico, 3,082 new foreign national licenses were granted from January through June, down from 3,886 in the same period in 2012. However, license renewals for immigrants have remained relatively stable — declining

Apache helicopter attack in Baghdad that mistakenly killed at least nine people, including a Reuters photographer. Manning said he did it to expose the U.S. military’s “bloodlust” and generate debate over the wars and U.S. policy. He was found guilty by the judge last month of 20 crimes, including six violations of the Espionage Act, but was acquitted of the most serious charge, aiding the enemy, which carried a potential life in prison without parole. Whistleblower advocates said the punishment was unprecedented in its severity. Steven Aftergood of the Federation of American Scientists said “no other leak case comes close.” The American Civil Liberties Union, Amnesty International and other activists condemned the sentence. “When a soldier who shared information with the press and public is punished far more harshly than others who tortured prisoners and killed civilians, something is seriously wrong with our justice system,” said Ben Wizner, head of the ACLU’s speech and technology project. Gabriel Schoenfeld, a senior fellow at the conservative Hudson Institute think tank and author of the book “Necessary Secrets,” welcomed Manning’s punishment. “The sentence is a tragedy for Bradley Manning, but it is one he brought upon himself,” he

Driver’s licenses for immigrants declining in NM

SANTA FE (AP) — As more states are preparing to give driving privileges to immigrants who illegally entered the U.S., heavily Hispanic New Mexico appears headed in the other direction. The state is issuing fewer driver’s licenses to them, with the number of firsttime licenses dropping 21 percent during the first half of this year, according to a review of state records by The Associated Press. The reason for the abrupt decline remains unclear. Officials in Republican Gov. Susana Martinez’s administration say there’s been no recent crackdown by the Motor Vehicle Divi-

sion and the requirements for immigrants to obtain a license haven’t changed, although the governor has fought unsuccessfully for three years to scrap the license policy. An immigrant rights advocate suggests the weak economy may be a cause. The state economy has been lagging behind the broader national recovery, posting much smaller job growth figures than national numbers in recent months. “Immigrant workers generally go where they have family and where they have job opportunities. Clearly there aren’t many job opportunities in New Mexico,” said Marcela Diaz, exec-

only 2 percent in the first half of the year compared to 2012. Martinez has made repealing the license law a centerpiece of her agenda in a state where Hispanics account for 47 percent of the population. She contends New Mexico has become a magnet for outof-state immigrants seeking a license by falsely claiming they are residents of the state. However, supporters in the Democratic-controlled Legislature contend the law improves public safety by having immigrant motorists obtain insurance and adding them to the government’s license database.

said. “It will certainly serve to bolster deterrence against other potential leakers.”

But he also warned that the sentence will ensure that Edward Snowden — the National Security Agency leaker who was charged with espionage in a potentially more explosive case while Manning’s court-martial was under way — “will do his best never to retur n to the United States and face a trial and stiff sentence.”

Coombs said that he was in tears after the sentencing and that Manning comforted him by saying: “Don’t worry about it. It’s all right. I know you did your best. ... I’m going to be OK. I’m going to get through this.”

Coombs said Manning will seek a presidential pardon or a commuted sentence.

“The time to end Brad’s suf fering is now,” the defense attor ney said. “The time for our president to focus on protecting whistleblowers instead of punishing them is now.”

Coombs read from a letter Manning will send to the president in which he said: “I regret if my actions hurt anyone or har med the United States. It was never my intent to hurt anyone. ... When I chose to disclose classified information, I did so out of a love for my country and a sense of duty to others.” He made a similar apology during the sentencing phase of the case.

Sid Bernstein, who brought Beatles to Shea, dies

NEW YORK (AP) — Mistyeyed music promoter Sid Ber nstein, who booked such top acts as Jimi Hendrix, Judy Garland and the Rolling Stones and hit the highest heights when he masterminded the Beatles’ historic concerts at Shea Stadium and Carnegie Hall, died Wednesday at age 95. Ber nstein’s daughter, Casey Deutsch, said he died in his sleep at a hospital. She cited no illness and said he died of natural causes. For decades, the squat, floppy-haired Ber nstein excelled like few others at being everywhere and knowing everybody. He worked with Garland, Duke Ellington and Ray Charles, promoted Dion, Bobby Darin and Chubby Checker and managed Esy Morales, the Rascals and Ornette Coleman. He was an early backer of ABBA, setting up the Swedish group’s first American appearances. He

was behind one of the first rock benefit shows, the 1970 “Winter Festival for Peace” at Madison Square Garden, which featured Hendrix and Peter, Paul and Mary. And he helped revive Tony Bennett’s career with a 1962 show at Carnegie Hall. A master of schmooze and schmaltz in an industry that never quits, Bernstein also had a studious side that led to his biggest break. He took a course on Western civilization at the New School for Social Research that required students to read a British newspaper once a week. It was 1963, and the Beatles were just catching on in their native country. “This was the right time to be reading an English newspaper,” he explained in a 2001 interview with the music publication NY Rock Confidential. “So here I am reading little stories about this group from Liv-

erpool that is causing a lot of ‘hysteria.’ By the end of the course, I was so Beatleized by what I read, even though I did not hear a note, I said, ‘gotta get ’em.”’ As Bernstein recalled, he couldn’t get his agency interested in the group, so he handled the job himself. He tracked down Beatles manager Brian Epstein and convinced him that he could line up a gig at Carnegie Hall. The Beatles were still unknown in the U.S., and the price was cheap — $6,500 for two shows, a fraction of what Garland might have commanded. The promoter used his own money to pay Epstein, while officials at the classy Carnegie, where no rock stars had been permitted, apparently thought they had taken on a folk quartet. (The story has varied over the years.) The timing was perfect. By February 1964, Beatlemania had crossed over to the

States, and the band was set to play on “The Ed Sullivan Show” just three days before the Carnegie concerts, guaranteeing maximum attention at minimum cost. Once the Beatles hit, Bernstein was primed to get the bands that followed. He arranged shows for the Stones, the Animals and other British groups, while saving his biggest dreams for the Beatles. Everything for Bernstein was the latest and the greatest, but his word was never more golden than in 1965, when he landed the group at Shea Stadium, the idea given to him by a ticket manager at Carnegie Hall. It was rock’s first major stadium concert and its alltime primal scream. With about 55,000 fans losing their voices and their minds on an August night, the show broke box-office records and likely some sound barriers. The New

York Times described the scene as meeting the “classic Greek meaning of the word pandemonium — the region of all demons.” Only a satellite broadcast from the moon could have topped it. The Beatles played again at Shea in 1966 but turned down $1 million from Bernstein to return in 1967 and never worked with him again, although he remained friendly with individual members after their breakup. Obsessed with getting the band back together, he proposed $100 million in 1976 for a concert. John Lennon, in a 1980 Playboy interview, dismissed Bernstein’s offer as “a commercial for Sid Bernstein, written with Jewish schmaltz and show biz and tears, dropping on one knee, like Al Jolson.” Like so many in the music business, Bernstein was the hustling son of

Jewish immigrants, born on Manhattan’s Upper East Side, raised in Harlem and hooked on sound and rhythm. He sneaked into the Apollo Theater as a boy, booked local acts in high school and, while studying jour nalism at Columbia University, ran a ballroom in Brooklyn that featured such Latino stars as Morales, Tito Puente and Marcelino Guera. Bernstein was connected to all kinds of music, getting Charles, the Drifters and Bo Diddley for a show at the Brooklyn Paramount Theatre; rounding up Mississippi John Hurt, Doc Watson and Tom Paxton for a folk festival at Carnegie Hall; arranging a jazz concert that featured Ellington, Louis Armstrong and John Coltrane.

Movie review: ‘Mortal Instruments’ a monster mash

A young adult fiction binge has broken out in “Mortal Instruments: City of Bones.” Like an 80-car pile-up, all of the current tropes of teenage fantasy here careen into one another: the young heroine with previously unknown powers; the gothic mix of heavenly and hellish supernatural creatures; the breathless romance with a young Brit of angelic cheekbones. And, oh, the tattoos. It’s an overdose of mysticism, concocted to give devoted young fans their fix: a heartthrob to swoon over and grand battles to match inflated teenage emotions. The film is based on the first in a series of popular young adult novels by Cassandra Clare, whose writing originated in “Harry Potter” fan fiction. It’s a blatant inspiration to “City of Bones,” the first of a planned franchise, as is (if you haven’t already guessed) “Twilight.”

Like a handbag bought on a New York street, this is the knockoff version. Lily Collins stars as Clary, a teen who discovers that her mother (Lena Headey) is secretly a Shadowhunter, a hunter of demons. At the same time as her mom is kidnapped, Clary, a bright redhead, realizes she’s able to see a hidden world in their native New York, one where Shadowhunters, demons, werewolves and warlocks stealthily operate in varying degrees of gothic drab, invisible to humans, or “mundanes.” It’s a lot like a mediocre episode of “Buffy the Vampire Slayer.” As she hunts for her mom, Clary is quickly indoctrinated into this underworld, led into it by the aforementioned heartthrob, Jace (Jamie Campbell Bower), an alluring Shadowhunter with blond locks. Directing from Jessica Postigo’s over-

stuffed screenplay, Harald Zwart (the “Karate Kid” remake) summons the kind of dingy, baroque, nighttime atmosphere that Jonathan Rhys Meyers revels in. As if falling for the trap, he reliably turns up to lend his pallor to the proceedings as the villain Valentine. He’s seeking a magical cup that Clary might — if she can stir the memories her mother had tried to block — know the location of. The plot is astonishingly overcooked: a mishmash of watery portals, Greek-styled father-son drama, invisible buildings and supernatural battle lines. It reaches an apogee of ridiculousness when, we are informed, Bach was a Shadowhunter, whose compositions were designed to ward off demons. What can be said for “City of Bones” (a sequel is already in the works) is that it’s not brooding or abundantly self-serious.

The cast generally lends enjoyable performances, even if the filmmaking (a madefor-TV movie level of craft, even with the abundant special effects) is lacking. The handful of comic, self-deprecating moments in the film — quick nods to the mounting silliness — gives “City of Bones” a pleasant cheeriness that it would have done well to pursue further. Instead, it desperately gathers cliches like a teen fantasy Frankenstein that doesn’t realize its secret identity: parody. “Mortal Instruments: The City of Bones,” a Sony Screen Gems release, is rated PG13 by the Motion Picture Association of America for “intense sequences of fantasy violence and action, and some suggestive content.” Running time: 130 minutes. Rating: One and a half stars out of four.



Miller fades into the Broncos background Thursday, August 22, 2013 Phone: 575-622-7710, ext. 304


Roswell Daily Record

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — All-Pro linebacker Von Miller donned a scout team skullcap over his helmet Wednesday and spent much of practice helping the Denver Broncos prepare to play more than a third of the season without him. Miller was part spectator, part tutor when he wasn’t squaring off against Pro Bowl left tackle Ryan Clady as a member of Denver’s scout team in his first practice since the NFL handed him a six-game suspension for violating the league’s drugabuse policy. Nate Irving took his place at strongside linebacker in the base defense alongside Danny Trevathan and Wesley Woodyard, and Shaun Phillips replaced him at rush end in the nickel packages as the Broncos began working on Plan B following the NFL’s verdict. “I don’t know that one guy can take Von’s place,” coach John Fox said. “I just know collectively as a football team we have to all pick it up.” It was a cloud that hung over the team all of camp. Now, at least, the Broncos know they’ll be without their disruptive defender for the first six games of the regular season and that they’ll have to generate pressure and make stops in other ways. “The only difference is the guys that back him up are licking their chops getting a chance to step up and make some plays,” Woodyard said. “We’re going to definitely miss his presence on the football

field for those six games but I have no doubt in my mind he’s going to come back and continue to be one of the best players.” Phillips noted that instead of sulking on the sideline, Miller spent Wednesday’s workout schooling rookie defensive linemen John Youboty and Sylvester Williams on the finer points of a slippery pass rush. “He keeps himself involved,” Phillips said. “He’s a locker-room guy. He’s the guy that makes everyone laugh and is out there coaching the young guys. He’s giving me pointers and giving other guys pointers. He always does that. That’s Von’s attitude. He’s always helping out everyone else.” Miller can continue practicing with the Broncos and can also play in their last two exhibition games before his Aug. 31-Oct. 14 banishment, during which time he’ll be allowed around team headquarters and can keep his team-issued iPad playbook but won’t be able to practice or play in any games. For weeks, the Broncos and Miller expressed confidence things would turn out differently. Miller insisted when word first broke about his pending suspension last month that he had done nothing wrong and Fox insisted on practicing Miller with the starters, suggesting that to do otherwise See MILLER, Page B3

Andrus hits sac fly in 9th as Rangers beat Astros

Texas’ Adam Rosales slides home with the game-winning run during the Rangers’ game against Houston, Wednesday.

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Elvis Andrus hit a sacrifice fly in the bottom of the ninth inning to score pinch runner Adam Rosales and give the Texas Rangers their major league-leading 40th

comeback win of the season, 5-4 over the Houston Astros on Wednesday night. As Andrus came up to bat with one out and the bases loaded, the Astros moved left fielder Chris Carter to first

base to add a fifth infielder. But Andrus instead sent a ball soaring into left-center field for the fourth gameending hit of his career. See RANGERS, Page B3

Cowboys’ Lee agrees to 6-year extension IRVING, Texas (AP) — Dallas Cowboys middle linebacker Sean Lee signed a sixyear contract extension Wednesday, a deal that goes through the 2019 season. A story on the team’s website Wednesday night said Lee’s deal is worth about $42 million, but could escalate as high as $51 million depending on different incentives. The guaranteed money is around $16 million. “I’m extremely excited. I was blessed to be able to be drafted by a great franchise,” Lee said in a video interview posted along with the story. “To have an opportunity to be here a long time and hopefully compete for a Super Bowl is fantastic.” Lee’s agent, Mike McCartney, posted a message on his Twitter account congratulating the linebacker.

“Congrats to SEAN LEE for agreeing to a 6 year extension with the (at)dallascowboys,” the agent tweeted Wednesday. Lee is going into his fourth NFL season since being a second-round pick from Penn State in 2010. The high-energy linebacker is a key part for the Cowboys in their switch to a 4-3 system under new defensive coordinator Monte Kiffin. Lee played only six games last season, when he had 77 tackles before being sidelined by a torn ligament in his right big toe. During his rookie season, Lee played 14 games behind Bradie James and

Clippers’ Paul elected pres. of NBA players union

Philadelphia’s Chase Utley takes a swing during the Phillies’ game against Colorado, Wednesday.

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Los Angeles Clippers star Chris Paul was elected president of the NBA players’ association Wednesday, replacing Derek Fisher. The vote by NBA player representatives came six months after the union fired Billy Hunter as executive director, a position that remains vacant. Hunter countered with a wrongfultermination lawsuit in May, accusing Fisher of conspiring with NBA officials during the 2011 lockout.

“We definitely discussed (hiring an executive director), but there’s no rush,” Paul said. “For us, it’s all about getting our house in order and making sure that everything moves right in that direction.” Paul was a vice president on the executive committee for the past four years. “It was something I saw as a challenge, something I knew I’d be able to handle,” Paul said. “It’s an unbelievable opportunity, a lot of responsibility comes with

this position but I’m very fortunate to have an outstanding of committee guys. The past couple of days have been outstanding, the dialogue we’ve had as an executive committee also with the players that have come in town, it was amazing.” In meetings at the Venetian Hotel, Roger Mason Jr. was elected first vice president. He replaced Jerry Stackhouse, who resigned from the office and is expected to take a position within the union.

Soriano has 2-run HR in 8th to lead Yankees

NEW YORK (AP) — Alfonso Soriano hit a tiebreaking two-run homer with two outs in the eighth inning, Ichiro Suzuki got his 4,000th hit between the major leagues and Japan, and the Yankees handed the Toronto Blue Jays their 12th straight loss in New York, 4-2 on Wednesday night. David Huff (1-0) pitched one-hit ball in five innings of relief to shut down the Blue Jays before New York finally got to Toronto’s R.A. Dickey. The 39-year -old Suzuki hit a liner of f Dickey (9-12) that bounced just beyond diving third baseman Brett Lawrie for the milestone hit in the first inning. Suzuki broke a tie with Lou Gehrig when he got his 2,722nd major league hit in his 13th season. The speedy outfielder amassed 1,278 hits in nine seasons with Orix of Japan’s Pacific League. Suzuki’s teammates streamed out of the dugout and surrounded him at first base, Curtis Granderson giving him the first hug. A grinning Suzuki then faced the cheering fans and bowed. When he went to his position in right field for the second inning, Suzuki tipped his cap to fans who greeted him with a standing ovation. Ken Griffey Jr., a former teammate with the Seattle Mariners, congratulated Suzuki with a message shown on the video board at Yankee Stadium. Yankees infielder Jayson Nix broke his left hand when he was

hit by a pitch in the second inning. Adam Warren started for New York to give 41-year -old Andy Pettitte one more day after the Yankees stayed on rotation for their doubleheader Tuesday. He gave up two runs in three-plus innings, including Josh Thole’s tying homer in the fourth. It was Thole’s first homer with the Blue Jays. Huff relieved and didn’t allow a hit until Lawrie led off the eighth with an infield single. Huf f walked four, one intentionally, but never was in real trouble. Toronto left at least one runner on base in each of the first eight innings and was 2 for 15 with runners on base. Mariano Rivera pitched the ninth and earned his 37th save after working both games of New York’s doubleheader sweep Tuesday. He gave up a one-out double to Rajai Davis, but picked him off second, and then struck out Edwin Encarnacion looking to end the game. The Yankees have won 10 of 13. Dickey overcame a rough start, giving up four hits in the first three innings and putting a runner in scoring position with a wild pitch before settling in with his knuckleball in ideal hot conditions. He struck out nine and gave up six hits. But after retiring 14 of 15, he allowed a two-out single to Robinson Cano. Soriano then snapped a 0-for-17 skid with a two-run shot to left for the 4-2 lead.

Browns’ Little, Gordon cited for speeding

CLEVELAND (AP) — Browns starting wide receivers Greg Little and Josh Gordon have both received tickets for excessive speeding and their behavior has been deemed “unacceptable” by the team. Little was involved in a single-car accident in April, when he admitted to driving 127 mph, WOIO-TV reported on Monday after obtaining records from the Cuyahoga County Sheriff’s Department. Little hit a guardrail, knocked down a light pole and left 40 yards of brake tracks. He was fined $350. Earlier this week, Little was cited for driving 81 mph in a 60 mph and for driving with expired plates. Gordon was ticketed last week for driving 98 mph in a 60 mph zone, the TV station reported. The Browns issued a statement condemning the players’ actions.

New York’s Ichiro Suzuki follows through on a single for his 4,000th career hit in Japan and the major leagues, during the first inning of the Yankees’ game against Toronto, Wednesday.

Thole, who caught Dickey throughout much of his NL Cy Young Award season with the New York Mets last year, had two passed balls in the first inning, but the Yankees failed to score. In the second, Eduardo Nunez singled and stole second. Dickey’s wild pitch sent Nunez to third, and Austin Romine’s sacrifice fly tied it at 1. Munenori Kawasaki had given Toronto the early lead with an RBI single in the top half. The Blue Jays have led in each of the three games in this series and

lost all three. They have dropped eight in a row against New York. Granderson had a two-out RBI single in the third. NOTES: Yankees 3B Alex Rodriguez was given the night off. ... Blue Jays SS Jose Reyes was ejected in the second inning after he tossed his helmet in the direction of home plate umpire Ted Barrett. Reyes had a brief heated discussion with Barrett following a called third strike. ... The Blue Jays recalled OF Moises Sierra from Triple-A Buffalo to take Jose Bautista’s spot on the roster.


“We’re aware of the situation involving the players and their unacceptable driving records,” the statement said. “We take matters such as this very seriously. We’ve spoken to both individuals, and will address the issue with the entire team.” None of the incidents involved alcohol, the team said. Attorney Pat D’Angelo, who is representing Little and Gordon, told the station the matters are being resolved. Little, who is in his third year with Cleveland, has had a strong training camp and has been praised by coach Rob Chudzinski and others for his strong work ethic. Gordon is suspended from the Browns’ first two regular-season games after violating the NFL’s drug policy.

Rams’ Witherspoon enjoys being a starter again

ST. LOUIS (AP) — The St. Louis Rams brought back Will Witherspoon to add veteran depth at linebacker. He’s preparing to start — at least the first four games. The Rams’ oldest player turned 33 Monday. Witherspoon is set to begin his 12th season in the league. Witherspoon got the starting job when Jo-Lonn Dunbar received a four-game suspension to start the season. Dunbar, who had the second-most tackles for the Rams last season, violated the league’s policy for performance-enhancing drugs. Dunbar can practice and play in the preseason but once the regular season starts, he will not take part in anything team related until after the Rams’ fourth game, which is a home game against the San Francisco 49ers on Sept. 26. On the last day of training camp Wednesday at Rams Park, Witherspoon said he’s ready to go and do what is needed. “It’s good to be back out there on the field,” said Witherspoon, who started just five games last season with Tennessee. “It’s always subject to change, right? That’s the way I look at it. It’s a good feeling. I just have to hold up my end of the bargain.” Witherspoon last started for the Rams in 2009 before he was traded to the Philadelphia Eagles for receiver Brandon Gibson. He started his career with Carolina and then signed a free-agent deal with St. Louis in 2006. In 11 seasons, Witherspoon has made 150 starts in 173 regular-season games. With Dunbar going to miss the start of the season, Rams coach Jeff Fisher plugged in Witherspoon with the first unit defense last Saturday in a home preseason game against Green Bay. Fisher liked what he saw from the veteran. “Will was fine. He didn’t get a lot of snaps particularly because of Green Bay’s personnel that they put on offense,” Fisher said. “We had to play a lot of nickel. He played some with the second group. He was fine. He was active. He was where he needed to be.” For Witherspoon, it was important to be back out there and adjusting to the game on the field. “I think it was really good to get into the game speed,” Witherspoon said. “It definitely helps.” When Witherspoon signed in July with St. Louis, he did not know about Dunbar’s situation. “It’s unfortunate,” Witherspoon said. “It’s one we’ll all get by. At the end of the day, we’ve all got to step our game up and fill that void. When he gets back, it’s readjustment time. We’ll keep rolling forward.” Does Witherspoon have designs on playing well enough to keep the starting job? “I’m just happy to be back to playing,” Witherspoon said. “You can’t say this is yours. Nothing is ever handed to you in this game. You’ve got to earn it, keep it and go.”

Holmes still has no timetable for return to Jets

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) — Tone Time might still be on hold for a while. New York Jets wide receiver Santonio Holmes acknowledged Wednesday he has no timetable for when he might return to the field as he recovers from a serious foot injury that sidelined him most of last season. “I never had one from the start,” Holmes said of a target date. “Coming off of injury, the first time, just letting the foot heal up and see where we can go from there.” Holmes recently told reporters he hadn’t even begun to run, but video from a fan in the stands at SUNY Cortland surfaced later that day with the receiver running at threequarters speed on the sideline. There appeared to be more cause for optimism

last Saturday night, when Holmes was running at full speed and caught a few passes from Geno Smith in warmups before the team’s preseason game against Jacksonville. “I probably ran two routes, which were the two passes that I caught from Geno on the deep-side, but everything else was walk, catch the ball on the sideline,” he said. “It wasn’t really full-go. It wasn’t planting and cutting the way I would like to, so at this point it’s only making strides forward.” Holmes added that his foot feels good on some days, but still bothers him on others. “This pain won’t go away,” he said. That doesn’t sound like a guy who will be ready to play in the regular-season opener against Tampa Bay in a few weeks. Holmes said he still feels pain in his foot every morning when he wakes up, and it’s something he is learning to tolerate. “I’m not able to be at Santonio Holmes’ level of competition,” he said, “so right now, it’s just going with what I can give.” Earlier this week, general manager John Idzik sounded optimistic during a radio interview, saying Holmes was “hopefully close” to returning to the field. Coach Rex Ryan also has seen Holmes working out and rehabbing on a daily basis. “He seems excited, so I think that’s a good sign,” Ryan said. “But again, he’s going to lean on the trainers — we’re all going to lean on the trainers and the doctors — and when they say he’s ready to go, he’ll be champing at the bit. I can tell you that right now. “He’s excited, I think he’s in great shape.” But Holmes said the way he looks isn’t necessarily an indication of reality. “Looks can be deceiving,” he said. “I say that with a smile because if I actually look or felt as good as I looked, I would definitely be 100 percent ready. With that being said, looks can be deceiving.” Holmes injured his left foot in the Jets’ 34-0 loss to San Francisco in Week 4 last season and needed two operations to repair it, including one in February to remove screws from the foot. During the offseason, Holmes said he had to learn how to walk again after suffering the Lisfranc injury, which usually involves separation of ligaments and joints in the middle of the foot. His rehabilitation lately has consisted of working with the trainers, riding a stationary bike and using an anti-gravity treadmill that relieves pressure on the foot. Holmes said he hasn’t done any additional cutting or route running since last Saturday, but refused to say whether he could miss the start of the season — or the entire season, for that matter. “I mean, we have 16 weeks of football,” Holmes said. “At any point, I could be ready to play. If not, I would be willing to accept it.”

Cardinals sign K Carpenter to compete with Feely

GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) — The Arizona Cardinals have signed Dan Carpenter to compete with Jay Feely as the team’s kicker. Carpenter was released by the Miami Dolphins a week ago. He signed with the Dolphins as an undrafted rookie in 2008 and, coincidentally, took Feely’s job away from him there that season. At 37, Feely is 10 years older than Carpenter. “As you get older, you have to prove that you still have it and that you can still do the job and do a great job at it,” Feely said before Wednesday’s practice. “That’s what I’ve been trying to do every day.” In Miami, Carpenter lost out to Caleb Sturgis, a fifth-round draft pick. In addition to signing the kicker, the Cardinals released wide receivers Robert Gill and Robby Toma. Carpenter was in uniform but didn’t do any kicking in practice on Wednesday. His wife gave birth to the couple’s first child on Monday. “It’s been a little bit of a tornado the last five days or so,” he said, “so they didn’t want me to hop off a five-hour plane ride and have to come out here and kick.” Carpenter said he had a few opportunities but chose Arizona. “It all came down to where I felt like I had the best opportunity to help the team out,” he said. Of trying to beat out Feely again, Carpenter said, “It’s kind of a little bit deja vu.” “He’s a great guy, he’s a great competitor, obviously a great kicker,” Carpenter said. “He’s been in this league many, many years more than I have. You know, it will be fun.” Carpenter made 22 of 27 field goals last season. Feely made 25 of 28. For their careers, Carpenter has made 81.9 percent of his field goal tries (127 of 155), Feely 82.6

Bautista was placed on the DL with a bone bruise in his left hip after Tuesday’s doubleheader. ... Yankees SS Derek Jeter (strained right calf) ran the bases for the second consecutive day in a simulated game at Steinbrenner Field in Tampa, Fla. He also played defense for the first time during the simulated game and did agility drills afterward. He will start a rehab assignment Thursday with Triple-A Scranton. He is scheduled to play five innings.

percent (299 of 362). “Healthy competition only makes us better,” coach Bruce Arians said of Carpenter’s signing. “We’ve been consistent that whenever there’s the potential to make our football team better we’re going to explore that opportunity.” Asked about losing the job to Carpenter five years ago, Feely said “There was a lot more to it than my percentages and my performances on the field.” Then he reeled off a list of what he said were his statistics since he joined the Cardinals. “I think I’m third in the NFL in makes over 47 yards the last four years, fifth in percentage, fifth in percentage under 47 yards,” Feely said. “So I’m happy with how I performed over the last few years of my career and happy with my training camp so far.” Since 2007, Feely has made 8 of 9 field goals of 50 yards or longer. Carpenter is 10 of 20 from 50 or farther. In Saturday’s 12-7 victory over Dallas, Feely made field goals of 25, 53, 40 and 22 yards but missed one from 30. “The miss was dumb,” he said. “It wasn’t a technical thing. I should have taken a delay of game and not rushed it.”

RB Arian Foster back on field for Texans

HOUSTON (AP) — Houston running back Arian Foster was removed from the physically unable to perform list Wednesday and practiced with the Texans for the first time since May. Foster strained his right calf in an offseason practice in late May and struggled with a sore back after recovering from that injury. “It’s really important,” coach Gary Kubiak said. “He’s been working, it’s not like he’s been standing around. He’s been trying to get all that soreness out and he felt really good the last two days. I think we took a big step forward.” Kubiak thought that Foster would have returned to practice sooner than he did, but he understood why he was out as long as he was. “I was watching him work and watching what he was going though so I felt confident that we were close and ready to go,” Kubiak said. “I also understand how important it was that they did it at the right time. The key is Arian felt good about it today and that’s the most important thing.” Foster rushed for 1,424 yards and 15 touchdowns last year for his third straight 1,200-yard season. Kubiak doesn’t expect Foster to play Sunday against the Saints and he likely won’t play in Houston’s final preseason game on Aug. 29 at Dallas. But that won’t keep him from being ready for Houston’s opener at San Diego on Sept. 9. “I don’t think it’s a must that he carry the ball in preseason to be ready for San Diego,” Kubiak said. Foster wasn’t sure if he’d see preseason action, but didn’t sound like he was angling to play before the opener. “I’m not a huge fan of preseason,” he said. “I feel like I’ll be ready for Sept. 9 without (it). I’ve just got to get myself acclimated.” He said it was a bit frustrating to deal with his back situation after recovering from the calf injury, but he was never concerned that the problems would bleed into the regular season. “I know my body and I knew it wasn’t a huge issue,” he said. “I had to give it time.” The Texans have relied on Ben Tate and a group of mostly rookie running backs while Foster was injured. Quarterback Matt Schaub said it was a boost to see Foster on the field on Wednesday. “It was great to see him back out there and see his explosiveness,” Schaub said. “After all his rehab he looked pretty fresh. It was great to have him back in the huddle and get another piece of the puzzle back.” Foster is excited about the possibilities for the offense with the new pieces they added in the offseason led by receiver DeAndre Hopkins, chosen in the first-round of this year’s draft. “We’ve got all the potential in the world, we’ve just got to go execute,” Foster said. “Obviously we have a bunch of talent here and it’s always fun to watch.” Foster went through some changes in his life during the offseason, with him and his wife welcoming their first son. He said he mostly just sleeps and eats now, but he can’t wait for him to get old enough to run around and play. But he’s hoping that his boy doesn’t follow in his footsteps in a few years, saying an emphatic “no” when asked about the possibility of him playing football one day. “If he wants to it’s cool,” Foster said. “I love the game and everything but this hurts. It’s a lot of work. Let daddy put in the work so you can go study art or something.”

Phillies starter Cliff Lee remained winless since July 5 and is 0-4 with two nodecisions since beating Atlanta. He kept the Phillies in this one, striking out six and walking none over seven innings.

The AL West-leading Rangers (74-53) moved a season-high 21 games over .500 and hold a 2 1/2-game lead over the Oakland Athletics in the division. During a wild eighth inning, Rangers reliever Tanner Scheppers gave up three hits, one walk, hit two batters and threw two wild pitches to surrender the lead. But closer Joe Nathan (4-2) shut down the Astros in the ninth to get the win. The Texas pitching staff has allowed five runs or less in 20 consecutive games.

Chia-Jen Lo (0-1) took the loss for Houston, which was swept in the series and has lost eightstraight to the Rangers. Scheppers allowed a hit to open the eighth and quickly erased it by getting L.J.

Jose Altuve singled, advanced to third on the two wild pitches and scored on Carter’s bloop single to pull the Astros to 4-3.

Michael Young grounded into a double play to score one run and make it 2-2. Utley fouled out to end the inning. Nicasio was chased with runners on first and second and two outs in the sixth. Wilton Lopez fanned John Mayberry Jr. on a check swing to escape the jam. They had some timely hitting in the first when Utley’s 16th homer of the season staked Lee to a 1-0 lead. Rosario tied it a 1 on a solo shot to right in the second that extended his hitting streak to 12 games. Dexter Fowler ripped an RBI single to left later in the inning for a 2-1 lead but Domonic Brown threw out Jordan Pacheco at home to end the inning. He was also hampered by injuries during his rookie camp and early in his first season, though he played 14 games without starting. There was also a December 2010 game at Indianapolis where Lee intercepted Peyton Manning twice. He returned one for a touchdown and set up a

Phillips said Miller will learn from his mistakes and suggested the Broncos will ultimately gain from these trying times, as well. “Pressure can either break you or pressure can make diamonds,” Phillips said. “Everyone’s hitting the panic button (on the outside). We haven’t even played the game yet. We’ll be quite all right. Football is about 11 players at a time doing their job, not one player doing his job.”

Bills granted 2 preseason Chiefs star Bowe has game exemption for Byrd refreshed outlook on life

PITTSFORD, N.Y. (AP) — The NFL isn’t going to stand in safety Jairus Byrd’s way to open the regular season. In granting the Buffalo Bills’ request to have the newly re-signed player not count on their roster, the league limited the exemption only through the team’s final two preseason games. The ruling, announced Wednesday, becomes the next step in clearing the way for the two-time Pro Bowl safety to open the season on the active roster. Byrd, however, must still pass a physical. One of the reasons Byrd signed this week was to avoid missing regular-season games. The exemption granted by the NFL begins Tuesday, when teams are required to cut their rosters to 75 players. It does not extend past Aug. 31, when teams have to establish their 53-player rosters. The Bills approached the NFL for an exemption a day after Byrd signed his oneyear, $6.9 million franchise tender. General manager Doug Whaley told The Associated Press he had not ruled out having the exemption extend into the regular season. “An extra roster spot is always a good thing,” Whaley said, when asked if Byrd could be exempted for the Bills opener against New England on Sept. 8. That request was denied because the NFL generally limits exemptions to two games. Buffalo plays at Washington on Saturday, and closes the preseason

hosting Detroit on Aug. 29. Byrd would not have been paid if he wasn’t on the active roster for the first week of the season. Whaley described the request as “standard procedure,” when involving a player such as Byrd, who has missed nearly the entire offseason because he was unsigned. Though Byrd is now under contract, he is not expected to report to the team until later this week. He’s missed all of the team’s offseason workouts, and all of training camp after the Bills held their final practice in suburban Rochester on Wednesday. Earlier in the day, coach Doug Marrone was encouraged by Byrd’s signing, and didn’t believe it would take long for the safety to grasp the defense installed by new coordinator Mike Pettine. “We all know what type of player he is,” Marrone said. “I don’t think it’s probably as big of an issue as maybe people might make it out to be. ... I’m sure that he was in communication with a lot of his teammates. And I think that that helps the transition when he comes back in knowing what we’re trying to accomplish.” The Bills wrapped up camp with a 90-minute practice. The mood was light and upbeat. Receivers switched jerseys, running backs played hot potato after practice, and there were several pranks pulled. A video of running back Fred Jackson dunking a miniature basketball over Marrone in the team’s locker

became popular after being released on the Internet. It’s something that continued to illustrate a growing bond between the players and the rookie coach. Jackson, one of Buffalo’s veteran leaders, has sensed a positive difference. “The whole team, everybody’s really buying into the systems and everything that the coaching staff is putting in,” Jackson said. “Tremendous energy out of our coaching staff and excitement. I haven’t seen guys this excited for a long time.” Buffalo’s new-look defense tops the list of positives for the Bills, who now return to their Orchard Park headquarters. Throughout camp, the defenders frequently flustered the offense with a variety of blitzes. On offense, Buffalo’s young receivers have played well. Rookie speedster Marquise Goodwin was among the team’s best overall performers, making big plays down the field. Goodwin, along with rookie second-round pick Robert Woods, are being counted upon to take pressure off returning starter Stevie Johnson this season. Injuries at quarterback were the most disappointing aspect of camp. Rookie EJ Manuel appeared well on his way toward earning the starting job until injuring his left knee in a 20-16 win over Minnesota on Friday. The first-round draft pick is expected to miss the rest of the preseason, but has not been ruled out for the opener.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — After signing autographs for what seemed like an hour, Dwayne Bowe finally walked up the long grassy hill toward the locker room, still smiling after a hard, hot practice. This is the wide receiver that everyone used to call “moody?” The guy branded as aloof, or worse, early in his career with the Kansas City Chiefs? The guy who became disgruntled when he didn’t get the ball or a distraction in the locker room, earning a reputation as an immature diva that certainly seemed to fit? Nope, not anymore. These days, Bowe is all smiles. He’s armed with a new long-term contract that makes him one of the best-paid wide receivers in the NFL. He finally has stability at quarterback for the first time in his seven-year career. And he has a coaching staff led by Andy Reid and offensive coordinator Doug Pederson that has repeatedly stated how valuable Bowe is to the team. Indeed, what’s not to smile about? “I’m just blessed to be alive, every day just coming out and seeing more fans appreciating me, screaming my name,” Bowe told The Associated Press during a recent interview. “I’m just trying to let loose and be joyful. There’s a time to have fun and a time to be serious, and I know that. But I’m just trying to be myself.” Maybe for the first time in his career. Bowe made enough flashy plays his rookie season, and folks around Kansas City were already calling him “The Next Big Thing.” With his big body, good speed and sure hands, he was supposed to be the homegrown star that the Chiefs had never been able to develop. But then he was hit with a four-game suspension for violating the league’s substance-abuse policy — his agent, Todd France, said at the time that it stemmed from a weight-loss supplement. He made eyebrow-raising comments to a magazine about womanizing that allegedly occurred at team hotels, and

then offered an apology that went awry when he referred to the Chiefs’ ownership Hunt family as “the Clarks” — presumably a reference to Clark Hunt, who serves as the team’s most visible face. Bowe began to draw the ire of fans, pointing to his name on the back of his jersey after a nice catch taken as a sign that he thought he was bigger than the team. Eventually, though, Bowe started to change. Ever so slowly. Those around him have said he heeded the advice of close friends and family, taking his dedication to his craft to a new level. He matured. And the result was the best year of his career, when he caught 15 touchdown passes and reached the Pro Bowl in 2010. Bowe had another good season the following year, catching 81 passes for more than 1,150 yards. But his contract was up and the Chiefs decided to franchise him, touching off another round of drama. Bowe refused to sign his franchise tender until deep into training camp, and struggled with injuries and poor quarterback play. He wound up with just 59 catches for 801 yards last season for a 214 team. The season was such a dismal failure that general manager Scott Pioli and coach Romeo Crennel were shown the door. John Dorsey was hired as the new GM and Andy Reid as the new coach, and they made signing Bowe to a long-term deal one of their priorities. They reached a five-year, $56 million pact that made Bowe among the bestcompensated pass-catchers in the league. And when Dorsey and Reid swung a trade with San Francisco for quarterback Alex Smith, Bowe finally had someone who could get him the ball. All of which would be enough to bring a smile to anybody’s face. “I like what I’ve seen,” Reid said of his No. 1 wide receiver. “He hasn’t missed a day. He’s worked his tail off. Obviously he’s a good player, we all know that.”


DEAR ABBY: I’m writing about the letter you printed from “Somewhere in the South” (May 26) who heard someone confess to a crime he had committed at age 12 during one of his Narcotics Anonymous (NA) meetings. The person asked if he should go to the police. You advised him to talk about it to the “group leader.” Abby, in a 12-step program, there is no formal leader who has a responsibility to report anything to the authorities. There are usually discussion groups led by someone chosen for the night.

I am not condoning what the person did at that young age. It was a horrible act. But 12-step programs are based on ANONYMITY. Reporting what is heard at meetings is completely against what 12-step meetings are all about. It was unfair of you to place responsibility on someone who is there for his OWN addiction to tell on another group member. ANONYMOUS IN THE USA

DEAR ANONYMOUS: I received a ton of criticism for my response to that letter. Readers like you wrote to point out that I was misinformed about how these programs work; others berated me for not insisting the writer notify the police immediately. I was — and still am — of two minds on the question. While it would be satisfying to see “justice done,” I could not bring myself to recommend going against the principle upon which these 12-step programs that have helped thousands of people is based. Another principle of these programs is that


people who have hurt others must make amends for what they have done. However, this is the responsibility of the person who committed the crime — NOT someone who overheard mention of it at a meeting. Read on:

DEAR ABBY: I have been a member of NA for 26-plus years (drug- and alcoholfree for that entire time). I also work in the field of mental health, where I have certain reporting duties as part of my professional code of ethics. I learned long ago how to separate my professional responsibilities from my membership in NA. If I obtain information about abuse or neglect in the conduct of my profession, THEN I have a duty to act. Should I overhear something at a meeting, in the mall or some other social setting, I have no specific duty to report. CLEAN, FREE AND LIVING LIFE DEAR ABBY: As a 30-year member, I can say with certainty that some meeting

The Wizard of Id

attendees are grandiose and others are mentally ill. I have not infrequently heard disclosures that I later determined to be not true. The advice for members offered by our NA traditions is, “Take what you can use (in one’s own recovery) and leave the rest of what one hears at a meeting.” CHARLES IN ILLINOIS

Family Circus

DEAR ABBY: I disagree with your answer to that letter! Yes, this needs to be reported. If the victim died in that incident, it is a cold case and the boy’s parents — if they are still alive — would have never had closure. There may be siblings who would want to know what happened to their brother. I am not a believer that if you confess to murder in NA, AA or with a priest in a confessional that they are bound not to tell. That is HOGWASH! For some crimes I would say OK, but not something this serious. JIM R., LANCASTER, CALIF.

US home sales hit 5.39M in July, highest since ’09 Roswell Daily Record

WASHINGTON (AP) — U.S. sales of previously occupied homes surged in July to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 5.39 million, approaching a healthy level for the first time since November 2009. The spike in sales shows housing remains a driving force for the economy even as mortgage rates rise. The National Association of Realtors said Wednesday that sales jumped 6.5 percent last month from a 5.06 million pace in June. They have risen 17.2 percent over the past 12 months ago. Sales have now stayed above an annual pace of 5 million for three straight months. The last time that happened was in 2007. And sales are well above the 3.45 million pace hit in July 2010, the low point after the housing bubble burst. Home sales jumped in July despite higher mortgage rates, which have risen a full percentage point since early May. Higher rates may have encouraged some potential homebuyers to close deals early. The July report captures completed sales, which tend to reflect mortgage rates that were locked in one or two months earlier. So the impact of higher mortgage rates on the market may not be clear until the August report. And sales could slow later this year, especially if the Federal Reserve scales back its bond purchases. The bond purchases have kept long-term interest rates, including mortgage rates, low.

In this Aug. 14 file photo, a home for sale sits behind a sign that reads, “sale pending,” in San Diego. The National Association of Realtors said Wednesday that existing home sales jumped 6.5 percent last month from a 5.06 million pace in June. They have risen 17.2 percent over the past 12 months.

For now, the average rate on the 30-year fixed mortgage remains low by historical standards. It was just 4.4 percent last week. “All in, the one-percentage-point jump in mortgage rates in the past year doesn’t seem to have slowed home sales, as affordability remains attractive in most regions,”

NEW YORK (AP) — The price of oil was lower Wednesday as traders awaited information on the U.S. Federal Reserve’s plans for its bond-buying program. Oil held onto losses in morning trading even as the Energy Department reported declines in oil and gas supplies in its weekly inventory report. Benchmark oil for October delivery was down 56 cents to $104.55 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange. The government reported that crude oil supplies fell by 1.4 million barrels and gasoline stocks dropped by 4 million barrels in the week ended Aug. 16. Both declines were larger than analysts predicted. Gasoline futures rose 3 cents to $2.95 a barrel. Still, the key focus of attention in the markets is the pending release of the minutes from the Fed’s last policy meeting. Traders will be looking out for any hints about when the central bank might begin cutting back on its $85 billion a month of asset purchases. Growing evidence that the U.S. economy is improving and a raft of comments from Fed officials have convinced many in the markets that the so-called tapering of the stimulus will start this year, possibly as soon as September. The Fed’s stimulus policy has lowered interest rates and made oil and other commodities a more attractive investment by offering potentially higher returns. Many analysts think the tapering could weigh on oil prices. Brent crude, which is used to set prices for imported oil used by many U.S. refineries, was down 3 cents to $110.11 a barrel on the ICE Futures exchange in London.

easing tight credit standards, which have made it hard for many people to get mortgages. The number of available homes is also rising slowly and should support more sales. The supply of unsold homes rose 5.6 percent in July to 2.28 million. That’s still 5 percent below last year’s figure. A limited supply has pushed up prices nationwide. There were other positive signals in the report. The proportion of distressed sales including foreclosures stayed at 15 percent, the lowest since the Realtors began tracking the figure in October 2008. And investors made up just 16 percent of purchases, down from a recent peak of 22 percent in February. The smaller proportion of investors suggests the market is slowly returning to normal. One troubling sign: First-time homebuyers aren’t returning to the market. They usually help drive rebounds in home sales. But they made up only 29 percent of sales in July, below the 40 percent level consistent with a healthy market. A brighter housing market helps the broader economy. Rising home sales boosts spending at furniture and home supply stores and lifts realtors’ incomes. Higher home values also make consumers feel wealthier, which lifts their confidence and encourages more spending. Consumer spending drives roughly 70 percent of economic activity.

Bloomberg reveals safeguards for client info NEW YORK (AP) — Financial data and news company Bloomberg LP said Wednesday has put in place new policies and procedures designed to prevent its journalists from accessing the subscriber information of its Wall Street clients. The moves stem from an outside review that followed complaints earlier this year that journalists in Bloomberg’s news division were accessing client log-in activity on trading information terminals maintained by the company’s professional service unit. The review, led by the law firm Hogan Lovells and the regulatory compliance firm Promontory Financial Group, found that Bloomberg journalists’ access to trading terminal information didn’t result from a lapse in oversight, but from a “longstanding policy” that

said Sal Guatieri, senior economist at BMO Capital Markets. “The jump in rates might have pulled forward some purchases, so a few more months of data are likely needed to wave the all clear flag.” Steady hiring and low mortgage rates have helped the housing market recover over the last year.

They could also view the types of “functions” individual subscribers had accessed. For instance, reporters could see if subscribers had been looking at top news stories, or if they had been gathering data on stocks or bonds.

According to the review, concerns about the accessing of terminal information also arose two years ago after a Bloomberg Television anchor mentioned the use of terminal information during a broadcast, but no action was taken by executives because of “misun-
