Lawyers: Gay marriages legally solid

SANTA FE (AP) — As hundreds of gay and lesbian couples flock to courthouses around New Mexico to get married, advocates are hopeful the state’s highest court will soon step in to resolve lingering legal questions and provide a uniform statewide policy on gay marriage. For now, six of the state’s 33 counties are issuing marriage licenses to same-

sex couples and a number of other clerks say they’re waiting for a court order before they take similar steps. What remains uncertain is when a legal challenge over same-sex marriage reaches the five-member Supreme Court. In the meantime, recently married couples aren’t caught in legal limbo, according to Antoinette

Sedillo Lopez, a professor of family law at the University of New Mexico. She said Wednesday the marriages are legally sound, even if the state Supreme Court were to override recent district judge’s rulings that ordered clerks to issue licenses. “In New Mexico, the legal policy is marriages are presumed valid until a court declares them invalid (on

an individual basis),” said Sedillo Lopez. That didn’t happen in 2004 when the Sandoval County clerk issued more than 60 marriage licenses to same-sex couples before stopping when then Attorney General Patricia Madrid objected. Six years later, a state district judge in Santa Fe ruled that a marriage license issued in Sandoval County to two

Fear of US strike ‘Camp’ celebrates DVD release on Syria spreads

DAMASCUS, Syria (AP) — Fears of a possible U.S. strike against Syria’s regime over an alleged chemical weapons attack rippled across the region Wednesday, as about 6,000 Syrians fled to neighboring Lebanon in a 24-hour period and Israelis scrambled for gas masks in case Damascus retaliates against them.

U.N. chief Ban Ki-moon pleaded for more time for

diplomacy and to allow U.N. investigators to complete their work.

Roughly 40,000 people in 85 cities viewed it in theaters last spring, and now the Roswell-based film “Camp” is being shown one last time to celebrate its release on DVD. A “nicely per for med” film, as reviewed by the L.A. T imes, “Camp” is based on experiences of Royal Family Kids Camps’ campers and counselors. “There’s a huge need for people to step up and love these abused and

Christian bookstores across the nation as well as online. Some of the actors involved include Asante Jones (“Dexter”), Grace Johnston (“The Devil’s Dozen), Matthew Jacob Wayne (“New Girl”) and Roswell local Josh Berry.

“I am glad to call Roswell home and have really enjoyed the support of the city and the film community here,” Roebuck said.

State retools Medicaid with eye on cost, wellness SANTA FE (AP) — As New Mexico prepares to provide medical services to more uninsured residents, Gov. Susana Martinez’s administration is retooling the state’s largest health care program in hopes of achieving two dif ficult goals: making people healthier while reining in Medicaid costs. Nearly 90,000 uninsured New Mexicans are expected to enroll in Medicaid next year under terms of the federal health care law that allowed states to expand eligibility for the program while having the federal government

national average was 6.5 percent and only six states — Alaska, Arizona, Idaho, Nevada, North Carolina and Utah — had higher average annual growth rates than New Mexico. Medicaid provides health care to more than a fourth of New Mexico’s population, with children in uninsured lower income families accounting for the largest share of recipients. The program is expected to cost nearly $4 billion this year, with almost $1 billion of that coming from the state and the rest from the federal government.

program. Copays will be imposed to encourage patients to take responsibility for some of their medical treatment. For instance, people will pay a fee if they go to an emergency room for medical problems that aren’t emergencies. Costs of Medicaid will continue to rise because of expanding enrollment and inflation for medical services, but state of ficials hope to better control the growth rate over the long haul. “What we’re trying to do with Centennial Care is slow that rate by identify-

ing people with the most need and coordinating care around them so that they get ... the right care at the right place at the right time rather than just getting very sick and ending up with avoidable inpatient stays, avoidable emergency room visits,” said Julie Weinberg, director of the Medical Assistance Division in the Human Services Department. Health care spending in New Mexico increased an average of 7.7 percent a year from 1991 to 2009, according to the Kaiser Family Foundation. The

nurse practitioner reported. The nurse has since resigned and has had her license suspended. Many health centers were without computers, patient files and records for several weeks, callers reported. One center with 2,000 patients was forced to begin filling out patient for ms by hand and had only managed to finish 18. A few callers tried to voice their disappointment with HSD’s decision to keep the audit secret, and to turn the community health centers over to Arizona companies. Health officials were quick to interrupt them and deflect comments. However, some demanded to be heard. Patrick Tyrrel, executive director of the New Mexi-

co Chapter of the National Association of Social Workers, called in to say how HSD’s move had affected the state’s social workers. “This has sent shock waves throughout the community,” Tyrrel said. “It was handled very unprofessionally. None of us were consulted.” HSD’s Deputy General Counsel Larry Heyeck tried to cut off Tyrrel and a terse argument ensued. “Please stop! I’m going to finish,” Tyrrel told Heyeck. Tyrrel also was concerned about the mass exodus of behavioral health providers caused by the recent state action and the expected thousands of additional new patients that will need services next year when Obamacare is enacted.

“In January, we will have thousands of more clients,” Tyrrel said. “This is not the way to encourage more providers to continue providing services, particularly in rural areas.” Gov. Susana Martinez a n n o u n c e d We d n e s d a y she is retooling the state’s largest health care program to rein in Medicaid costs. Nearly 90,000 uninsured New Mexicans are expected to enroll in Medicaid next year under the federal health car e law that expands eligibility for the program. HSD will also roll out a revamped Medicaid program, called “Centennial Care,” intended to better coordinate medical, dental, mental health and substance abuse services pr ovided to low-income

residents. One caller, who identified himself as a “commun i t y m e m b e r, ” s a i d h e found the premise of the phone conference “offensive and aggravating.” “Communities and community members are being abandoned,” he said. “What you have created is a culture of government that is punitive.

You have failed to be humane, and I don’t know how you guys can sleep at night.” CMS is expected to send representatives from Washington, D.C., to New Mexico in early September to conduct private interviews throughout the state with providers and clients, according to New Mexicans Fighting to Save Behavioral Health.

initially pay the tab. Also starting in January, the state Human Services Department will roll out a revamped Medicaid program known as “Centennial Care” that’s intended to better coordinate the services provided to needy New Mexicans by doctors, dentists and nurses as well as mental health and substance abuse therapists. Medicaid also will offer gifts such an electric toothbrush to recipients as incentives for good health practices ranging from having an annual dental checkup to completing a prenatal care

Under the Medicaid overhaul, managed care companies will hire care coordinators who monitor the health care provided to each recipient.

“This care coordinators job is to make sure that things get done as opposed to all these doctors or whatever just doing their own thing ... and just having a patient that’s in the middle of that that’s not getting better,” Human Services Secretary Sidonie Squier said last month when the federal government approved the state’s Medicaid revisions.

Of course artistic ability and competence were factors, but more so than that artists were challenged to tell a story and speak to people’s emotions through their artwork, said publicity chair volunteer Joyce Tucker. “(The judges) were looking for that elusive quality that draws you into the piece,” she says. And many artists rose to the occasion. Every piece is unique. Linda Gilmore takes you on a voyage to the edge of the sea with her painting “Land and Sea.” You can almost taste the salty air and feel the breeze as the waves crashed against the cliff side.

U.S. leaders, including Vice President Joe Biden, have charged that Assad’s government was behind the Aug. 21 attack that Doctors Without Borders says killed at least 355 people. The White House says it’s planning a possible military response while seeking support from international partners. The U.S. has not presented concrete proof of Syrian regime involvement in the attack, and U.N. inspectors have not endorsed the allegations, although the U.N. envoy to Syria, Lakhdar

to writing on a restaurant sign or the umbrella at a table. And then some paintings, instead of transporting you to a dif ferent land, make you look inside yourself and simply feel the emotions. Paul Maurer from Serafino does just this with “Raven I” and “Raven II,” pieces that, although both depict a wild series of strokes to present images of ravens, each give off a very different emotion. “Raven I” feels angry and dangerous, whereas “Raven II” is more regal and pensive. Also eliciting to emotions, but in a very different for m of art, is Stephanie DeFranco in a couple of photography pieces. In “Can’t Let Go,” she shows a stirring selfportrait of her back with clinging hands holding tightly as arms wrap her in a tight hug. “I wanted something that showed (being) sheltered,” DeFranco explains of her portrait. “Like someone who loves you so much that they can’t let you go, and they just want to hold you forever. And that’s where the multiple hands come from. There are my hands holding onto what I hold dear, and another set of hands that are somebody else’s

that can’t let go of you.” But she also speaks to emotions in a piece of a girl floating just below a pool’s water surface, entitled “Red.” The light dances across the floor, and an added retro coloring gives the picture further feeling. The flowing skirt is inspired by dance, DeFranco said, but in general the picture was a “happy accident,” taken from a chance to experiment with an underwater camera. Of the seven photos she submitted, four of DeFranco’s pieces made it into the show. And she said the three that didn’t make it were landscapes, whereas the ones in the show are focused on people. “They are dif ferent,” she says. “You don’t normally see that sort of thing in art shows. There are not usually people, so the different genre I think helped them stand out.” Sponsored in part by City of Roswell Lodgers Tax Fund as well as Excel Energy, the Juried Art Show will be on display at Roswell Museum and Arts Center, 100 W. 11th St., through Sunday, at which point a People’s Choice Award will be given out to the art piece with the most votes.

ily tolled a bell to echo King’s call 50 years earlier to “let freedom ring.” It was the same bell that once hung in the 16th Street Baptist Church in Birmingham, Ala., where four black girls were killed when a bomb planted by a white supremacist exploded in 1963. Georgia Rep. John Lewis, a former freedom rider and the sole survivor of the main organizers of the 1963 march, recounted the civil rights struggles of his youth and exhorted Americans to “keep the faith and keep our eyes on the prize.” The throngs assembled

in soggy weather at the Lincoln Memorial, where King, with soaring, rhythmic oratory and a steely countenance, had pleaded with Americans to come together to stomp out racism and create a land of opportunity for all.

Brahimi, said evidence suggests some kind of “substance” was used that killed hundreds. Two senior Obama administration officials said U.S. intelligence agencies are drawing up a report laying out the evidence against Assad’s government. The classified version would be sent to key members of Congress and a declassified version would be made public. One of the officials said the administration is considering more than a single set of military strikes and “the options are not limited just to one day” of assault. “If there is action taken, it must be clearly defined what the objective is and why”

President Barack Obama is weighing a limited response that focuses on punishing the Syrian government for violating international agreements that bar the use of chemical weapons. Any U.S. military action, officials say, would not be aimed at toppling the Assad regime or vastly altering the course of Syria’s civil war, which has already claimed 100,000 dead.

A better idea than slaughtering horses? A4 Thursday, August 29, 2013

Please, Mr. Redford, give us the alternative to slaughtering horses. Please, governors current and past, don’t just tell us it’s bad, tell us what to do instead. Show us a plan. Show us a budget. Show us the water to grow the feed for thousands of stray horses, in this drought, when cattle are dying of starvation on ranches. There’s livestock and there’s wildlife. Stray, wild and abandoned horses are somewhere in between — not useful to humans, not cared for by humans, competing for scarce food and water. We may love them, but we’re letting nature take its brutal course. I am not a fan of killing horses. I am as sentimental as anyone. I think of the horses that have personally nuzzled me. I think of T rigger, Roy Rogers’ golden palomino, rearing up elegantly in front of the cameras and of horses who had the misfortune to be ridden into battle, left unscathed





when the rider fell. A recent article by my colleague Sherry Robinson reminded us that, historically, the horse got hit more often than the man, and horses were eaten when circumstances dictated. We 21st-century humans can’t get our act together on how to be ethical in treating animals. What crazy inconsistent thoughts are we thinking? A rancher was almost criminally prosecuted for animal cruelty because his cattle were starving. The state almost adopted these cattle and would have been forced

to feed and water them at taxpayer expense, so they could be slaughtered instead of starving. A few so-called sportsmen had a prairie dog hunting contest. Prairie dogs’ effect on the environment is debated. Some people think they just make holes in the ground that cause cows to break legs; others believe they and their underground tunnels are good or even necessary for the ecosystem and the soil, and their complex community relationships are admirable. We can’t decide whether to feed the bears having a tough summer that wander into our backyards (except in Raton, where reportedly they are welcome in the trash dumpsters and don’t hurt anybody). Feeding them up in the mountains would protect them by keeping them away from civilization, so their population would be healthier next year and we’d have licenses to shoot a few

more of them. We adore our dogs and treat them like members of the family, except for those abandoned by the roadside, tossed into a dumpster or living wild on the Navajo reservation (thousands of them, reportedly). New Mexico is spending $1 million in federal money to kill feral pigs (including shooting from airplanes — nothing sportsmanlike about that) even though they are highly intelligent social animals. State Land Commissioner Ray Powell was quoted as saying, “They’re much brighter than I am.” We hear nothing from the animal rights community, perhaps because the pigs are ugly and multi-billion-dollar destructive, tearing up crops and wildlife habitat, eating small wildlife and spreading disease to both cattle and wildlife. According to New Mexico

Wildlife (published by the Game and Fish Department), some of these pigs were brought in privately from Texas because they were somebody’s idea of good animals to hunt. Then they multiplied, like four-legged kudzu or the Asian carp, destroying fisheries as they eat their way up the Mississippi. And don’t get me started on wolves. Perhaps the feral dogs will kill and eat the abandoned horses, who will be too weak from hunger and thirst to run away, and maybe the feral pigs will give the dogs a fight and thus reduce the wild dog population. That’s nature for you. Not a pretty picture. Instead of just opposing what’s proposed, please come up with something better, Mr. Redford. Contact Merilee Dannemann at © New Mexico News Services 2013

Resist urge to strike Syria

Secretary of State John Kerry said Monday the fact that Bashar al-Assad’s Syrian government used chemical weapons against civilians in rebel-held areas of the war-torn country is “undeniable,” adding that the U.S. government will release additional evidence of an attack that reportedly killed hundreds of men, women and children. The poison gas attack last week is, as Kerry said, a “moral obscenity,” but a U.S. military strike on the Syrian military would be the wrong response. There is little doubt that Assad and the rebels are both guilty of war crimes, including bombing, displacing and raping civilians. To date, Syria’s civil war is believed to have claimed more than 100,000 lives. Assad has sadly surpassed his father and predecessor, Hafez al-Assad, whose policies led to the deaths of an estimated 40,000 people and the trumped-up political incarcerations of ethnic minorities, including Jews, quietly purged from what was once Syria’s vibrant cultural fabric. When the rebellion began as largely peaceful demonstrations, 29 months ago, in the midst of other Arab Spring uprisings in North Africa, there may have been a tenuous case to be made for intervention. There may have been a possibility for a stealthy removal of Assad without abandoning the more secular principles of the state. Although such actions would not have been without ramifications, they also would not have been nearly as dangerous to U.S. interests as the calls to action heard from several lawmakers in Washington, D.C., in reaction to the attack with chemical weapons. Indeed, any intervention requires careful strategy. Where the Middle East is concerned, though, there isn’t much in the way of disciplined policy from the Obama administration even as it has become an increasingly volatile region. The al-Qaida factions fighting alongside the same Syrian rebels that the West is considering backing are the ideological partners of theocratic, oppressive groups that more than 6,700 Americans have died fighting in Afghanistan and Iraq. Where Syria is concerned, American inaction has not deepened the conflict. We should bear in mind that civil wars in the Middle East have lasted, in some cases, for decades, as in Lebanon, where more than 120,000 people died during the 1975-90 civil war. In many ways, such civil wars never really end. There may be a tactical hudna, the Arabic word for truce, but such respites often are short-lived. It is no surprise, therefore, that the number of Americans who support intervention in Syria is even lower than the approval rating for Congress. Last week, as bloodcurdling images filled the news of Syrian civilians killed or injured by chemical weapons, just 9 percent of Americans contacted for a Reuters/Ipsos poll said the Obama administration should intervene militarily. Unless Americans are willing to sacrifice this nation’s sons and daughters in yet another Middle East conflict, the visceral calls for intervention ought not to be heeded. Guest Editorial The Orange County Register DEAR DOCTOR K: My husband recently had a mild heart attack. He’s never been much of a drinker, but now he wants to have wine with dinner every night because he’s heard that it’s good for the heart. What do you think? DEAR READER: Not long ago a patient of mine, a 45-year-old man, asked me if he should have a drink every night to lower his risk of heart disease. I replied, “Absolutely.” A few months later, another man in his 40s asked me the same question. I replied, “I wouldn’t.” Am I confused? No, they were two different people, and different advice can be needed for different people. There are few “one size fits all” answers in medicine. Most people who drink alco-

Governments run trains to nowhere When Democrats and Republicans agree, I get nervous. It often means that they agree to grab my wallet. Both parties now agree that we don’t have extra budget money lying around, but both say government does need to spend more on “infrastructure.” Even conservatives want more spent on roads and mass transit. The reason, advocates claim, is that infrastructure, unlike most gover nment spending, has a “multiplier effect” — it creates new wealth by doing things like speeding up travel.



holic beverages regularly, and in moderation, have a reduced risk of heart attack. Many studies involving tens of thousands of people have shown that. Although red wine gets most of the praise, regular moderate intake of white wine, beer and liquor all have similar effects. Moderate alcohol intake may protect the heart by boosting levels of HDL (“good”) cholesterol to



Well, it might. Advocates also point out something that seems obvious to them: Infrastructure is a job that must be done by gover nment. Who else would launch big projects like the New York City subway system? Subways are what Big Government supporters call a

a similar degree. For men, the best “dose” is one to two drinks a day, counting 5 ounces of wine, 12 ounces of beer, or 1 1/2 ounces of liquor as one drink. Women should limit themselves to one drink a day. (Heavy drinking takes a toll on the heart and circulation, along with the liver and other organs.) So moderate alcohol consumption is good for a healthy heart. But you are asking if it is safe or beneficial after a heart attack. To find out, French scientists evaluated 353 men who had recovered from a first heart attack. They observed them from within two months of the attack for about four years. During that time, men who averaged two drinks a day were 59 percent

“public good.” They are important to many people, but there’s no way that business would build subways or run them, they argue. Subways lose billions of dollars. Entrepreneurs would never invest in subway cars or dig subway tunnels — there’s no profit in that. But often what we “obviously know” ... is not so. Most of New York’s subways were actually built by private companies. Few New Yorkers even know that. Private companies dug the first tunnels and ran the trains for about 40 years. But when they wanted to raise the fare to a

less likely to have additional cardiovascular events than the men who abstained from alcohol. Heavier drinking was less protective. Providing further evidence, a 2010 analysis of more than 16,000 patients found that moderate drinking is safe and beneficial for people with cardiovascular disease. That’s reassuring — but it doesn’t necessarily mean that alcohol is right for your husband. Fortunately, moderate alcohol intake does not have a negative interaction with the medicines prescribed most often to heart attack patients: statins, beta blockers, ACE inhibitors and low-dose aspirin. Why did I discourage one patient from having a drink each

dime, the politicians said they had to “protect” the public. Government took over the system, saying only “public ownership” could guarantee affordable fares. But government doesn’t do anything well. Under government management, profit disappeared and the fare rose well beyond the inflationadjusted equivalent of what the private companies had wanted to charge. Now, politicians want you to buy them new trains. Who wouldn’t like a shiny new train? The Obama administra-

day? I knew the patient had gotten into trouble with alcohol when he was younger. For that reason, he no longer drank. While a drink a day probably would have reduced his risk of heart troubles, it might also have started him back on the road to alcohol abuse. And excessive alcohol use could have led to many health problems, including heart disease. Alcohol can have power ful effects on the body (and mind), for good or ill. Used in moderation, it can contribute to your husband’s continued recovery. (Dr. Komaroff is a physician and professor at Harvard Medical School.

Life too complex not to have been designed

Dear Editor: Some people say that evolution is a “fact” instead of a theory. If this is the case, why don’t all scientists agree? Can those scientists who believe there was a master designer be dismissed as naive? Reporting on those scientists, a book review in the New York Times comments: “They have Ph.D’s and occupy positions at some of the better universities. The case they make against Darwinism does not rest on the authority of Scripture; rather, it proceeds from premises that are scientific.” The article also says that proponents of intelligent design “do not make any obviously foolish claims ... What they deny is that the standard Darwinian theory, or any other ‘naturalistic’ theory that confines itself to mindless, mechanical causes operating gradually over time, suffices to explain the whole of life. The biological world, they contend, is rife with evidence of intelligent design, evidence that points with near certainty to the intervention of an Intelligent Designer.” Dawkins claims that no reputable person doubts the fact of evolution. Here’s a list of some reputable people: Phillip E. Johnson, who teaches law at the University of California, Berkeley; biochemist and author Michael J. Behe; mathematician William A. Dembski; philosopher of logic Alvin Platinga; physicists John Polkinghorne and Freeman Dyson; astronomer Allan Sandage; and others too numerous to list. The aforementioned Professor Behe wrote that “The conclusion of design is not due to ignorance. It’s not due to what we don’t know; it’s due to what we do know. When Darwin published his book ‘The Origin of Species’ 150 years ago, life seemed simple. Scientists thought that the cell was so simple that it might just spontaneously bubble up from the sea mud. But since then, science has discovered that cells are enormously complex, much more complex than the machinery of our 21st-century world. That functional complexity bespeaks purposeful design.” What about the claim that some plants and animals are poorly designed? Behe responds, “Just because we don’t know the reason for some feature in an organism does not mean that it doesn’t have an important role to play. For example, the appendix and the tonsils were once thought to be vestigial organs and were routinely removed. But then it was discovered that these organs play a role in the immune system, and they are no longer considered just vestigial. Just because a car has a dent in it or gets a flat tire does not mean that the car or the tire was not designed. Likewise, the fact that some things occur by chance in biology does not mean that the sophisticated,

complex molecular machinery of life arose by chance. That argument is simply not logical.” Well, there you have it. The Earth is like a beautiful house that’s been given to us. You may not know who the builder is and you may see the people that claim to work for him doing some bad things and saying crazy stuff, but to say the house built itself, is “simply not logical.” Sincerely, Sara Westhauf Roswell

GOP has shifted too far to the right

Dear Editor: In response to the letter by Mr. Ralph Rivera published in the Roswell Daily Record on Tuesday, Aug. 6, I would like to offer the following thoughts. Mr. Rivera seems to have a deep dislike of moderate Republicans, and of all Democrats. While I do respect his right to voice his opinions, I do question the validity of some of his statements. The Republican Party is very divided with several very different ideologies trying to define the platform. Since President Reagan they have not had a real base, but instead a platform trying to cater to the extreme political right, to the wealthy and to the religious right. In the process they are excluding the longtime faithful, moderate Republicans who have always been the backbone of the party. It is sad but according to a recent news article the number of registered Republicans is only slightly over 20 percent of all registered voters with the number steadily declining. I would think Mr. Rivera’s views would suggest he probably fits into the political right segment of the party. This is a group with few clear positive solutions to any of the problems facing our nation. Their economic policies have proven many times in the past to be counterproductive to any real growth in our nation’s economy, and are designed for the benefit of the wealthy at the expense of the middle and lower income brackets. Their social views, for the most part, are regressive. They seemingly are against any policies designed to move our nation forward, and in welfare and education they would actually take us back to the late 19th century. The wealthy segment of the GOP is really in control of the party. I think this group would willingly relegate our nation to the status of Mexico with two main classes, the very rich and the very poor. They seem to believe raising the income taxes and raising the minimum wage is somehow a redistribution of wealth from the wealthy to the

Thursday, August 29, 2013


poor. In reality the wealth redistribution has been just the opposite. Today the top 20 percent own 87.7 percent of the nation’s total wealth while the lower 80 percent own only 12.3 percent. This is the greatest disparity in wealth distribution since the 1920s prior to the Great Depression. While everyone should follow their own religious beliefs, the extreme religious right who teach hate in the name of God are scary. I can’t believe God hates gays, Muslims or anybody else. I believe God is love, and is not capable of hate in any form. Sadly, I fear many of this group would like to establish a theocracy which would do more longterm damage to our nation than all the failed economic policies of the Republican Party. In my adult life there have been only two presidents who have made a significant reduction in federal spending, President Clinton and President Obama. In the past 30 years conservative Republicans have been responsible for a 1,600 percent increase in our national debt. Mr. Rivera, I would respectfully disagree with your opinions regarding moderate Republicans and Democrats. I think in order to move our country forward, both economically and socially, we desperately need much more moderation from both parties. Respectfully, John Grogan Roswell

Wealth gap

Dear Editor: Given the exploding wealth gap in America I would like to add another comment. I am referring to the fact less than 1 percent of Americans now control over 90 percent of America’s wealth, and given this financial apportionment, America now has 50 million citizens who experience hunger, of which 15 million are children. Here is my comment for what it is worth. I am sure many will disagree. “It is worth noting, in a few societies, past and present, having more wealth and property than you need is considered a mental illness. Realizing this viewpoint, I am forced to consider Capitalism has outrun its own benefit. That is, I believe there are necessary limits to all human effort, and that if you exceed those limits by acquiring so much, as to help produce human suffering, then you are, indeed, mentally ill.” Jim Osborne Roswell

Today in history: Hurricane Katrina hits Gulf Coast Today is Thursday, Aug. 29, the 241st day of 2013. There are 124 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On August 29, 1943, responding to a clampdown by Nazi occupiers during World War II, Denmark managed to scuttle most of its naval ships. On this date: In 1533, the last Incan King of Peru, Atahualpa (ah-tuh-WAHL’-puh), was executed on orders of Spanish conqueror Francisco Pizarro.

In 1877, the second president of The Church of Jesus Christ of LatterDay Saints, Brigham Young, died in Salt Lake City at age 76. In 1944, 15,000 American troops marched down the Champs Elysees (shahms ay-lee-ZAY’) in Paris as the French capital continued to celebrate its liberation from the Nazis. In 1952, 4’33” (“Four Minutes, Thirty-three Seconds”), a composition by avant-garde composer John Cage, had its premiere in Woodstock, N.Y., as pianist David Tudor sat at a piano and, for a total of four minutes and 33 seconds, played... nothing. In 1953, an early version of the animated cartoon character Speedy Gonzales made his debut in the Warner Bros. cartoon “Cat-Tails for Two.” In 1957, the Senate

gave final congressional approval to a Civil Rights Act after South Carolina Sen. Strom Thur mond, then a Democrat, ended a filibuster that had lasted 24 hours. In 1958, pop superstar Michael Jackson was born in Gary, Ind. In 1972, swimmer Mark Spitz of the United States won the third of his seven gold medals at the Munich Olympics, finishing first in the 200-meter freestyle. In 1982, Academy Award-winning actress Ingrid Bergman died in London on her 67th birthday. In 1987, Academy Award-winning actor Lee Marvin died in Tucson, Ariz., at age 63.

tion gave your money to California politicians who want to build a 200-mph train to take people from Los Angeles to San Francisco. Somehow, in the tradition of political boondoggles everywhere, the train that politicians actually approved doesn’t yet come close to either city. It starts, and ends, “in the boondocks,” says Reason magazine’s Adrian Moore. “I live in a little mountain town called Tehachapi,” he says. “It’s in the middle of nowhere, 50 miles to the nearest Walmart

... the high-speed rail line in California comes right through my town. This thing is like the boondoggle of boondoggles.” When I confronted train advocate Dennis Lytton about that, he said, “They’re starting high-speed rail in the middle of the state because that’s where you can build it fast.” He also said, “Private investors will be part of the mix.” But when I asked if any have invested so far, he said, “Not at this time.” People who spend their own money know better. L ytton also claimed that California’s Amtrak trains are “packed.” So we investigated that claim. It turns out to be far

from the truth. On average, California’s Amtrak trains are one-third full. Government planning leads to transit systems that lose money on every passenger, airports where there are few passengers or planes and bridges to nowhere. America does need mass transit. Three hundred million people need to go places. Roads are congested. Who will provide it when government drives transit entrepreneurs out of the business? Well, instead of building giant rail projects in the boondocks, how about letting people ride buses? Buses, privately owned buses, are now the fastest growing mass transit in America. Buses are much cheaper than trains.

Amtrak charges about $150 to ride from New York to D.C. Buses charge less than $20. And buses don’t require new land seizure through eminent domain. Buses aren’t locked into straight-line routes. They go where people go. And when people move, buses, unlike trains, change routes. Let services be paid for by the people who use them and built by people who put potential profits on the line. Otherwise, politicians will take us for a ride. John Stossel is host of “Stossel” on the Fox Business Network.

NBC trying to create big event with game A6 Thursday, August 29, 2013


NEW YORK (AP) — A giant hourglass structure being built on the rooftop of an abandoned Manhattan car dealership may look like Godzilla’s futuristic toy but instead represents NBC’s hope for the television event of the season. It’s the set for “The Million Second Quiz,” a prime-time competition with Ryan Seacrest as host that will play out over two weeks starting Sept. 9. Someone adept at trivia will win a $2 million prize on the Sept. 19 finale. More than a game, the event is a peek into the future of broadcast television. With the sources for quality content expanding along with the ability of viewers to watch when and how they want, showing big live events like football games and awards shows is becoming the most reliable way broadcast networks can draw a big crowd and distinguish themselves from rivals. “The rewards of doing the same thing every day are relatively small in TV land these days,” said Paul

Paw Prints

Telegdy, head of alternative and late-night programming at NBC Entertainment. “We have to be taking risks. We have to be doing things to scale. We have to do everything we can to energize the audience.” NBC moved quickly to build the show from scratch after Telegdy heard a pitch from executive producer Stephen Lambert last December. There’s the physical structure, which includes a chamber for the top four players to stay day and night, and a duplicate indoor set in case of rain. Three truck trailers provide 600,000 watts of generator power. Producers also needed to build the infrastructure of the game: composing nearly 25,000 quiz questions, processing applications for the estimated 800 to 1,000 participants in the round-the-clock contest, and building an app that allows people to play at home. The free tablet app became available two weeks ago; NBC won’t say how many have been downloaded, but

estimated that 4.5 million “bouts” have already been played online. With the play-at-home app, NBC hopes to capture the imagination of people who have grown accustomed to watching television with a second screen open. “If things play out the way we hope things play out, we could be changing the course of television” with the integration of digital and viewer participation, said David Hurwitz, an executive producer. Seacrest is a big “get” for producers. Sure, the “American Idol” host seems to be everywhere, but his presence will signal to many viewers that “The Million Second Quiz” is worth checking out, Hurwitz said. “It was something that really stood out to me as big and different and ambitious, something I had not truly done to this level before,” Seacrest said. “I’ve hosted game shows in the past, but none to this caliber. I love the live event aspect of it.” During the prime-time broad-

casts, local NBC personalities will arrive at the door of a person playing online somewhere in the country and send them to New York where they will play on TV the next night. The game, designed to test speed and endurance, literally lasts a million seconds — or 11 days, 13 hours, 46 minutes and 40 seconds. Ten hours will be seen on TV, with the rest available on NBC’s website. A player’s goal is to stay in the “money chair,” where the number of seconds they control the game corresponds to a cash prize. The chamber for top players includes cots and televisions because some of the quiz questions are plucked from the day’s headlines. Even though she’d never seen the game yet, one woman from Orlando, Fla., flew to New York to apply and waited outside the NBC Experience store all night, Hurwitz said. “We’ve seen a different kind of contestant than we’ve seen in years past on different shows,” said the

Bubblefest at Bottomless Lakes ROSWELL — Bottomless Lakes State Park is the best way to dive into this Labor Day weekend during the annual Bubblefest from Aug. 31-Sept. 2. The event features fun and educational activities for divers and spectators. “The Bottomless Bubblefest attracts scuba club divers from throughout New Mexico and other states because it is an unusual way to test one’s scuba skills while having fun,” said Park Superintendent, Joe Kasuboski. One of the most popular events is underwater dive poker! Dive poker involves tossing two decks of weighted cards into Lea Lake and divers compete for the best hand. No more than five cards can be held at a time, and divers may discard one of their cards in exchange for a new card, similar to traditional poker. Prizes will be awarded on Sunday for the winning hand. Bottomless Lakes also offers a variety of fun activities for everyone, and visitors can swim or rent paddleboards and pedal

boats to explore Lea Lake. A ranger-led presentation on the flora and fauna of Lea Lake will also be available at 8 p.m. this Saturday during the park’s weekly “Enchanted Evenings” series.

Bottomless Lakes State Park is a popular scuba diving destination, known for its greenish-blue color that creates the illusion that the lakes are bottomless when in fact they range in depth from 17 feet to 90 feet. The “Mecca” is a large group of springs located 30 feet to 40 feet below the surface of the lakes, producing more than 9 million gallons of water a day. Divers may have a chance of spotting the endangered fish species such as the Pecos Pupfish and Mexican Tetra, among others. To get to Bottomless Lakes State Park from Roswell, head east on US 380 for 12 miles and then south on NM 409 for three miles. For more information, contact Bottomless Lakes State Park at 624-6058, (888) NMPARKS or log onto

ROSWELL—Beautification, one of six objectives of the Keep Roswell Beautiful program and mission, encourages cleanliness, unity and economic development in our “ALL-AMERICA CITY.” In an effort to promote beautification through outstanding maintenance and landscaping by Roswell businesses and residents, Keep Roswell Beautiful has established an awards program called the Keep Roswell Beautiful Beautification Awards. On Thursday at 2:30 p.m., KRB will award Bur-

rito Express at 209 E. College Blvd. Burrito Express’ ef forts exemplify KRB’s mission to engage individuals to take responsibility for their community environments. Encouraging this mission makes communities safer, healthier and more livable. Joan Blodgett, KRB vice president stated, “when a community and its residents unite with beautification as a common purpose, transfor mations occur; not only in the physical surroundings, but in the hearts and minds of everyone involved.”

former “Fear Factor” producer. “They’re enthusiastic to be on TV and go for it, but they’re also an intelligent group.” The event is timed for a two-week fallow period for television before the introduction of new fall programming and, if it works, will give NBC a platform to promote those shows. NBC isn’t talking publicly about expectations. Telegdy would say only that he’d like to beat NBC’s ratings for the same time slots a year ago, which seems relatively easy. His real hopes may been expressed in a conversation with the architect who helped turn an idea into the tons of steel and flashing lights rising into the sky of Manhattan’s West Side. “I said, ‘You’re spending an awful lot of money. I do hope we’re going to use this thing several times over,”’ he recalled. If it does work, “The Million Second Quiz” will appear again as a special event, not a regular series.

The monthly Beautification Award is a presentation made to local area businesses, residences or community organizations that have made continuous ef forts to support Keep Roswell Beautiful programs, demonstrate community outreach and for outstanding landscape and maintenance. For more information, schedule of events, or to nominate a property for the KRB Beautification Award please visit or call Keep Roswell Beautiful at 637-6224.

RDR Business Review Page is a great way to advertise

The Roswell Daily Record’s Business Review Page is a great way for a business to advertise. The Business Review Pages run three times a week, in the Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday papers. There are only a few spots available right now so if you’ve “been thinking about it”, NOW would be the time to get your spot before they’re all gone. Your RDR advertising representative can fill you in on the complete de-tails. Please phone or ask them for the information. The basic set-up for the Business Review Page is as follows: You sign up and we run your ad on the bottom half of the

Business Review Page on its assigned day (Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday) each week. We have a maximum of twenty six ads running per page. After advertising weekly for six months you will recieve a “free future article” (th-en another one six months after your first free one and another free one six months after that). as our “Thank You!” for advertising on the business review page. This six month schedule comes from having twenty-six (maximum) advertisers per page and a fifty-two week year. With ads starting as low as $21.43 (including tax) per week the

business review page is ideal for businesses large and small to obtain effective advertising on a small budget.

This info usually consists of what you have to offer (services and/or product); who you are (history); where you are located; when you are open; and how to get in touch with you. The typical layout can be altered to fit your circumstance. If you want more pictures we can cut down on the article’s length. We do

whatever works best for you. Leasa Metcalf is the Business Review Page Editor. Leasa takes the photographs and either writes the text (with your input) or uses an article that your provide for your feature story. We can also use your photographs, if you have ones that you want to use.

Manziel to sit half of A&M’s opener Thursday, August 29, 2013

Roswell Daily Record

Phone: 575-622-7710, ext. 304

HOUSTON (AP) — Johnny Football’s season will start a little late. Johnny Manziel was suspended for the first half of Texas A&M’s opening game against Rice on Saturday for what the school called an “inadvertent” violation of NCAA rules by signing autographs. The penalty appears to have brought a quick end to an investigation that could have ruined the seventhranked Aggies’ upcoming season. The school issued a statement Wednesday saying it declared the Heisman Trophy winner ineligible and that the NCAA agreed to reinstate Manziel after he sits out the first half against the underdog Owls. “I am proud of the way both Coach Sumlin and Johnny handled this situation, with integrity and honesty,” Texas A&M Chancellor John Sharp said in the


statement. “We all take the Aggie Code of Honor very seriously and there is no evidence that either the university or Johnny violated that code.” The quarterback was being investigated by the NCAA for allegedly accepting money for signing autographs for memorabilia brokers, a violation of NCAA rules that could have led to a much longer suspension. ESPN first reported the allegations against Manziel earlier this month. According to the statement, Texas A&M and the NCAA “confirmed there is no evidence Manziel received money in exchange for autographs based on currently available information and statements by Manziel.” Conditions for reinstatement include Manziel discussing his actions with teammates and A&M revising how it educates studentathletes about signing auto-

graphs. “Student-athletes are often asked for autographs from fans, but unfortunately, some individuals’ sole motivation in seeking an autograph is for resale,” said Kevin Lennon, NCAA vice president of academic and membership affairs. “It is important that schools are cognizant and educate student-athletes about situations in which there is a strong likelihood that the autograph seeker plans to resell the items.” He likely will be replaced in the starting lineup by either junior Matt Joeckel or freshman Kenny Hill. Manziel became the first freshman to win the Heisman Trophy last season, setting numerous school and Southeastern Conference records while leading Texas A&M to an 11-2 mark and a victory against No. 1 Alabama in its first season in the SEC.

He followed that with a high-profile offseason of road trips to Las Vegas and the NBA Finals. Manziel got to meet Heat star LeBron James and rapper Drake, and he posted some Tweets that made headlines. His biggest misstep, however, came during the summer when he departed early from a quarterback camp for high school players run by the Manning family in Louisiana. Manziel said it was a mutual decision after he overslept and missed meetings and activities. Manziel was the main attraction at SEC Media Days, where he was peppered with questions but answered with the same cool and calm he often shows in the face of a pass rush. “I don’t feel like I’ve done anything that’s catastrophic,” Manziel said at the time. “Of course, I’ve made my mistakes. It’s time to grow up.”

Spurrier set for season debut

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — Steve Spurrier has always liked the attention South Carolina gets by starting its season on a Thursday night. Having All-America Jadeveon Clowney on the sidelines, though, guarantees the Gamecocks will get plenty of attention whenever they play this season. “I told my wife this morning, I was looking at the paper, all the NFL guys are playing this Thursday night,” Spurrier said. “Those dadgum guys are crowding in on our Thursday night TV games.” Don’t worry, coach, your ratings will likely be high among NFL scouts, who’ll tune to watch Clowney. The 6-foot-6, 274-pound junior — and presumptive No. 1 pick in the next draft — steps on the field for the first time since the Outback Bowl when he sent the helmet of Michigan runner Vincent Smith flying and turned momentum to the Gamecocks in a 3328 victory. The hype hasn’t slowed down since. Clowney’s hit won an ESPY for “Best Play.” He’s met LeBron James, been linked to rap mogul Jay-Z and is considered a legit candidate to become the first defense-only player to walk away with the Heisman Trophy. First, the Tar Heels.

Clowney, Spurrier believes, is eager to show his skills on the field again instead of hearing about what might happen. “Jadeveon, obviously, he and Johnny Football are the two guys the whole country’s been talking about. And I think Jadeveon’s handled it very well,” Spurrier said. The Gamecocks are 13-1 at home since Clowney arrived in 2011. North Carolina left tackle James Hurst, an allAtlantic Coast Conference player with NFL aspirations of his own, is the first who’ll try and slow down the Gamecocks defensive end. Hurst has watched Clowney on film since January and has patiently fielded question after question about what’s in front of him. “I don’t really know if it matters if I’m tired of talking about him because I know it’s going to be a big deal,” Hurst said. “It just keeps reminding me of how big of a deal it is, so it’s probably a good thing.”


1. WELL, THERE’S CLOWNEY: Clowney kept astounding teammates throughout the offseason. He ran a 4.46 second time in the 40-yard dash. He toppled a two-man tackling sled with linemate Gerald Dixon. And here’s

In this Nov. 17 file photo, South Carolina’s Jadeveon Clowney talks with teammates dur-

a scary proposition — Clowney says he’s in the best shape of his life. “I used to get tired last year during games a lot. Now, I just got myself really in shape. That’s all it was. I am not worried about my game, because my game was all right last year. I was just out of shape last year.” Out-of-shape Clowney had 13 sacks and was the SEC’s defensive player of the year. 2. NORTH CAROLINA’S RENNER: Tar Heels quarterback Bryn Renner could be the best offensive player on the field. He’s thrown 52 touchdown passes the past two years and believes he’s more adept at running coach Larry Fedora’s high-speed offense. Renner hasn’t thrown an interception in his last 91 attempts and says he has to get rid of the ball so quickly, he has no time to worry about Clowney. 3. ACC MEETS SEC: South Carolina has had its way with ACC opponents since Steve Spurrier arrived after the 2004 season. The Gamecocks have won four straight in the Palmetto State rivalry series. The Gamecocks have gone 84 against ACC teams in Spurrier’s eight previous seasons, including a 21-15 win at Chapel Hill the last time they played North Carolina. 4. NEW FACES IN THE BACKFIELD: Both teams have to break in new tailbacks. South Carolina sophomore Mike Davis, the brother of former Clemson 1,000-yard rusher James Davis, will get first crack at taking over for Marcus Lattimore. Sophomore Romar Morris is atop the depth chart for the Tar Heels after two-time 1,000yard rusher Giovani Bernard left for the NFL. 5. SPURRIER DOESN’T LOSE OPENERS: South Carolina’s coach has won his past 20 college openers dating to his debut season at Florida in 1990. Throw in a pair of NFL opening victories in 2002 and 2003 with the Washington Redskins and that streak grows. Spurrier’s lone college opening loss? To South Carolina while he was in his last season as Duke’s coach in 1989. Spurrier’s Blue Devils bounced back to win their third straight over North Carolina and take the ACC title.

Martin, Rangers pound Mariners

SEATTLE (AP) — The Texas Rangers once again got the best of Seattle ace Felix Hernandez. The AL West-leading Rangers pounded Hernandez for nine runs and 11 hits in three-plus innings on Wednesday en route to a 12-4 win over the Mariners. Hernandez fell to 0-4 with a 7.57 ERA in five starts against the Rangers this year. The right-hander’s 20career losses against Texas are his most against any team. “We don’t own him. No one owns him,” Rangers manager Ron Washington said. “He’s only human and there’s some days he’s going to go out there and things aren’t going to fall into place. Fortunate for us, today was one of those days.” Hernandez struggled early on Wednesday. Leonys Martin started the scoring with two outs in the second, slicing a 2-1 pitch into the Seattle bullpen in left field. The three-run home run was part of a career-high four RBIs game for Martin. Texas kept the pressure on with two more runs in the third and five in the fourth. Ian Kinsler chased Hernandez (12-8) in the fourth with a run-scoring single, the fourth straight hit for the Rangers to open the inning. “Felix is always a great challenge to face,” said Elvis Andrus, who had three of the team’s 17 hits. “Every time you face one of the best pitchers in the league, it’s a great challenge to be able to beat him. We know we have to do every little thing. Don’t try to make him feel comfortable on the mound and that’s what we did today.” “I thought he was up for the most part and they were ready to hit,” Mariners manager Eric Wedge said. “They are a good hitting ballclub, ready to hit it.” While the offense gave him an early lead, Martin Perez (8-3) limited the Mariners to two runs and five hits in six innings. Perez breezed through the Mariners lineup, not allowing a hit until Kyle Seager’s one-out single in the fourth. The right-hander won his fifth straight decision — he hasn’t lost since July 21 — and is the first Texas rookie pitcher to win five consecutive starts. “He’s growing,” Washington said. “You’re watching it right in front of your eyes. I just think you need to watch it and enjoy it. He just goes out there and does what he does. That’s throw the fastball down in the zone, change speeds and use his breaking ball and move it around.” Adrian Beltre and Mitch Moreland also added homers for the Rangers, as every Texas starter got a hit except for Alex Rios.

Coyotes Stadium (Dora), 3 p.m. 2012 RECORDS Hondo Valley 5-5, Dora 8-1 COACHES Hondo Valley, Brandon Devine; Dora, Mason McBee LAST YEAR Dora won 65-52 in the regular season and Hondo Valley won 44-24 in the state semifinals WHAT TO WATCH The rematch of last year’s state semifinals features two teams in very different situations. Hondo Valley returned nearly all of its playmakers, including Billy Candelaria and Roberto Nores, whereas Dora lost all of its primary playmakers. ... Dora’s top returnees include Jestin Watson, who was second on the team in most offensive categories last season, and Eddie Arzate, last year’s backup QB. ... Candelaria and Nores combined for more than 1,400 rushing and 1,000 passing yards last season.

Ratliff: 2012 groin injury causing current absence

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Dallas Cowboys defensive tackle Jay Ratliff says there is no issue with his hamstring, meaning a setback that will cost him at least the first six games is related to a groin that was surgically repaired eight months ago. Ratliff spoke at the team’s kickoff luncheon Wednesday, a day after being put on the physically unable to perform list. He never answered questions from reporters during training camp in Oxnard, Calif., where coach Jason Garrett said he was sidelined by a hamstring injury sustained in the pre-camp conditioning test and lingering issues with his groin. The team put him on the reserve list as part of cutting the active roster to 75 players, and Ratliff can’t play until Oct. 20 at Philadelphia. He was out the first four games last year with an ankle injury and then sat the final six with the groin problem. Ratliff, who turns 32 on Thursday, had sports hernia surgery in December. “Absolutely I’m disappointed,” Ratliff said

in a rare and brief interview. “But everyone knew what the issue was way beforehand. Everyone knew what it was since last year. I’m not going into much more detail other than that. It’s for sure it’s not a hamstring tweak. So that’s all I have to say about it.” When asked why he didn’t do his rehabilitation at the team’s Valley Ranch headquarters, Ratliff responded, “Good question.” He wouldn’t elaborate. “Let’s just keep the focus on these guys going out there and playing and winning games,” said Ratliff, who said he “absolutely” plans to play this season. “I’m not going to be here and be a distraction to anybody. Just stay as professional as possible about the whole situation. But everyone that is involved knows what is going on.” Cowboys owner Jerry Jones declined to address any perceived differences with the training staff over Ratliff’s comments. He said he didn’t second-guess the decision for Ratliff to participate in the conditioning test July 20 in California because “everybody involved in that decision thought he could run it.” Defensive end DeMarcus Ware was ready for training camp after attending rehab sessions at Valley Ranch following offseason shoulder surgery. Jones said Ratliff not doing his rehab work with the team was “a combination of schedule. It’s a combination of preference.” “It implies that he was not involved in supervision and he was,” Jones said. “We knew what he was doing. We did have special situations that gave us peace of mind that we were getting the work done and we were getting the injury rehabbed.” Jones said he expects Ratliff to play this season. By the time he’s eligible to return, Ratliff will have missed 16 of the past 22 games, and he has just two sacks in the two years since he signed a $40 million extension on a contact that now runs through 2017. Ratliff didn’t have a sack in the six games he played last year. “It is a setback,” Jones said. “We will have to adjust just as we would if it was a mid-season injury. What we’re doing there and his status is that hopefully will move the process along faster.” Nick Hayden, a sixth-year player who has started 28 games in his career but was out of football last season, was in Ratliff’s spot in the preseason against Cincinnati last weekend. The Cowboys are also without Anthony Spencer, the defensive end on Ratliff’s side. Spencer underwent arthroscopic knee surgery early in camp and says he believes he’ll be ready for the opener Sept. 8 against the New York Giants. Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said he was “hopeful” Ratliff would play this season. “Right now, we don’t think he’s going to be ready to play in the next few weeks, so we thought this was a good move, give him

The offense has morphed into a true spread passing attack because of the lack of a dynamic playmaker at running back, but Carlsbad will keep you honest with Holcomb’s running ability and a mix of reverses and draw plays. Kain Fierro, the third-leading rusher a year ago, could be the guy in the backfield. ... Nose guard Nathan Rose is the strength of Carlsbad’s defense. ... For Roswell, finding playmakers on the offensive side of the ball will be critical. The starting QB and RB are gone from last season, leaving holes to fill at two positions that are critical to Lynn’s option offense. ...

Browns waive DB Trevin Wade, former draft pick

CLEVELAND (AP) — The Browns were awarded rookie linebacker Eric Martin on waivers from New Orleans and waived second-year cornerback Trevin Wade. A seventh-round pick last season from Arizona, Wade injured his shoulder while trying to make a diving interception during a training camp practice. He appeared in 13 games last season, playing mainly on special teams. The 6-foot-2, 250-pound Martin originally signed with the Saints as an undrafted free agent on April 28. He played in all three exhibition games, recording one special teams tackle. New Orleans waived the former Nebraska player on Tuesday. As a senior, Martin was named first-team All-Big Ten and led the Cornhuskers with 8 1⁄2 sacks. The Browns said he will wear No. 56 and is expected to be available Thursday night for the exhibition finale in Chicago.

Fort Hood gunman sentenced to death FOR T HOOD, T exas (AP) — A military jury on Wednesday sentenced Maj. Nidal Hasan to death for the 2009 shooting rampage at Fort Hood, handing the Army psychiatrist the ultimate punishment after a trial in which he seemed to be courting martyrdom by making almost no effort to defend himself. The rare military death sentence came nearly four years after the attack that stunned even an Ar my hardened by more than a decade of constant war. Hasan walked into a medical building where soldiers were getting medical shouted checkups, “Allahu akbar” — Arabic for “God is great!” — and opened fire with a laser sighted handgun. Thirteen people were killed.

Hasan, who said he acted to protect Islamic insurgents abroad from American aggression, had no visible reaction when the sentence was announced, staring first at the jury forewoman and then at the judge. Some victims’ relatives were in the courtroom but none showed any reaction, which the judge had warned against.

giving him what he wants because this is his own personal holy war,” said Platoni, who watched most of the trial from inside the courtroom. “But on the other hand — this is from the bottom of my heart — he doesn’t deserve to live,” she said. “I don’t know how long it takes for a death sentence to be carried out, but the world will be a better place without him.” Hasan could become the first American soldier executed in more than half a century. But because the military justice system requires a lengthy appeals process, years or even decades could pass before he is put to death. He was expected to be taken on the next available flight to the military

prison at Fort Leavenworth in Kansas. In his final plea for a death sentence, the lead prosecutor assured jurors that Hasan would “never be a martyr” despite his attempt to tie the attack to religion. “He is a criminal. He is a cold-blooded murderer,” Col. Mike Mulligan said. “This is not his gift to God. This is his debt to society. This is the cost of his murderous rampage.” Since the attack, the federal government has sought to execute Hasan, believing that any sentence short of a lethal injection would deny justice to the families of the dead and the survivors who had believed they were safe behind the gates of Fort Hood, about 70 miles north of Austin.

Judge apologizes Calif. launches drone to aid wildfire battle for rape comments

BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) — A Montana judge on Wednesday stood by his decision to send a former teacher to prison for 30 days for raping a 14-yearold girl who later killed herself, but said he “deserved to be chastised” for his comments about the young victim. District Judge G. Todd Baugh sentenced former Billings Senior High School teacher Stacey Rambold to 15 years, then suspended all but 31 days and gave him credit for one day already served. In handing down the sentence Monday, Baugh said the teenage victim was “older than her chronological age” and had as much control of the situation as the teacher who raped her. Faced with a backlash over the comments and calls for his resignation, Baugh, 71, wrote an apology in a letter to the editor


NM gets $1M for carbon dioxide production

SANTA FE (AP) — The State Land Office says it’s received $1.2 million in royalties from a company for carbon dioxide production in northeastern New Mexico. Land Commissioner Ray Powell said the payment from the Hess Corp. covers production since 2010 on state trust land in Harding County in a carbon dioxide gas field known as the West Bravo Dome. Powell said the carbon dioxide is sent by pipeline to West Texas where it’s injected in oil reservoirs to help increase production. Public schools, universi-

He said he was “fumbling around” in court trying to explain his sentence and “made some really stupid remarks.” “I don’t know how to pass that off. I’m saying I’m sorry and it’s not who I am,” Baugh said. “I deserve to be chastised. I apologize for that.” However, Rambold’s sentence was appropriate, he said. Rambold was charged in October 2008 with three counts of sexual intercourse without consent after authorities alleged he had an ongoing sexual relationship with Cherice Moralez, starting the previous year when she was 14.

GROVELAND, Calif. (AP) — Firefighters battling the giant wildfire burning in the Sierra Nevada added a California National Guard Predator drone to their arsenal Wednesday to give them almost immediate views of any portion of the flames chewing through rugged forests in and around Yosemite National Park. The MQ-1 unmanned aircraft being remotely piloted hundreds of miles away quickly alerted fire bosses to a new flare-up they otherwise wouldn’t have immediately seen. “They’re piping what they’re seeing directly to the incident commander, and he’s seeing it in real time over a computer network,” said National Guard Lt. Col. Tom Keegan. Previously, ground commanders relied on helicopters that needed to refuel every two hours. The 12-day-old Rim Fire continued to grow, expanding to 301 square miles.

But crews building lines around the flames made significant progress, and containment jumped to 30 percent. Cooler temperatures and lighter winds are aiding firefighters. Increasingly confident fire of ficials said they expect to fully surround the blaze in three weeks, although it will burn for much longer than that. “We continue to get line around this fire,” California fire spokesman Daniel Berlant said Wednesday. “It’s not nearly as active as it was last week.” While unmanned aircraft have mapped past fires, use of the Predator will be the longest sustained mission by a drone in California to broadcast information to firefighters in real time. The plane, the size of a small Cessna, will remain over the burn zone for up to 22 hours at a time, allowing fire commanders to monitor fire activity, determine the fire’s direc-

tion of movement, the extent of containment and confirm new fires ignited by lightning or flying embers. The drone is being flown by the 163rd Wing of the California National Guard at March Air Reserve Base in Riverside and is operating from Victorville Airport, both in Southern California. It generally flew over unpopulated areas on its 300-mile flight to the Rim Fire. Outside the fire area, it will be escorted by a manned aircraft. Officials were careful to point out the images are being used only to aid in the effort to contain the fire. In 2009 a NASA Predator equipped with an infrared imaging sensor helped the U.S. Forest Service assess damage from a fire in Angeles National Forest. In 2008, a drone capable of detecting hot spots helped firefighters assess movement of a series of wildfires stretching from Southern California’s Lake Arrow-

head to San Diego. The Rim Fire started Aug. 17 and quickly exploded in size, becoming one of the 10 largest California wildfires on record. Its progression slowed earlier this week when it moved from parts of the forest with thick underbrush that had not burned in nearly a century to areas that had seen fire in the past two decades. But it will bur n for months, possibly until California’s dry season ends this fall. “My prediction is it will bur n until we see rain,” said Hugh Saf ford, a regional ecologist with the U.S. Forest Service.

last week in a filthy home also packed with cats, dogs and other animals, Undersheriff Wesley Waller said. “The smell was just horrendous,” Waller said. “The conditions there were so bad that it’s impossible to imagine how someone could live there.” Two children less than 10 years old were also in the home, Waller said. They were not injured and are now staying with family friends, he said. Deputies say the cause of the woman’s death is still under investigation and the animals don’t appear to be a factor. The woman has not been identified. Authorities found goats,

rabbits, prairie dogs, hamsters, ferrets, turtles, snakes and lizards inside the home. All the cats were in such poor condition they had to be euthanized, Waller said, but the other animals have been placed with rescue groups.

City Attor ney David Tourek told KRQE-TV that liability lies with the teens who caused the crash by switching seats as they drove drunk in a stolen vehicle. Kopczuk said police shouldn’t have allowed the bait car to enter a residential neighborhood. Tourek said the officer was awaiting backup and that there was no immediate threat to public safety.

ALBUQUERQUE (AP) — The former executive director of the Gallup Housing Authority has been indicted for alleged fraud. New Mexico prosecutors said Wednesday that a federal grand jury has indicted 37-year-old Danny Garcia for allegedly engaging in a scheme to defraud the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development out of more than $100,000. They say 61-year -old Michael Virruso also was indicted in the 12-count indictment filed late Tuesday.


DEAR ABBY: While I was out of town, my husband, “Miles,” ran into his high school girlfriend at a party hosted by good friends of ours. She has been through a bad divorce, and Miles insists his desire to keep in touch with her is merely concer n for a dear friend. Until I put a stop to it, he was calling her every night, talking with her for at least an hour at a time. He said there was nothing more to it. I have now insisted that he call her only once a week and in my presence. He’s comply-

ing, but it distresses me to hear him enjoy the conversation so much. Miles truly cares about her and she makes him laugh. He says he loves only me and will never leave me. He’s a good man and I believe him, but ... How should I handle this? I don’t want to forbid him to talk to her, but I am feeling very insecure. Am I foolish to let their contact continue? We have been married 30 years. THREATENED IN KENTUCKY DEAR THREATENED: Tell your husband you know he loves you, has good morals and would never leave you, but that you feel intimidated by his renewed relationship with his high school sweetheart. Tell him you know he is kindhearted, but for YOUR mental health to please consider winding down these conversations. And it would be a kindness for him to recommend a counselor to his friend to help her resolve

COMICS #####

DEAR ABBY: I’m 27 and the mother of a 6-year-old boy. I kiss him on the mouth and never thought twice about it until today, when my husband told me it’s “creepy” that I do it at my son’s age. In my family we have always kissed on the mouth, and I still kiss my mother this way. Is it “weird” or inappropriate? I did not think so, but now I’m concerned. “SMOOCHY” IN TACOMA, WASH. DEAR “SMOOCHY”: Did you also kiss your father on the mouth? Different families have different customs, and if your husband spent much time around your family he should have noticed that. I don’t see anything weird or inappropriate about the way you kiss your child. If your son

reaches an age where it makes him uncomfortable, I’m sure he’ll let you know. #####

DEAR ABBY: I work in customer service and have noticed that more than half the people who write in abruptly end their emails with “Please advise.” To me, it seems rude and demanding. I feel that if a question has already been asked, there is no need to follow up with this phrase. What is the proper etiquette for using this phrase? OFFENDED IN NEW JERSEY

DEAR OFFENDED: There is no rule of etiquette pertaining to the use of the phrase “please advise.” Many individuals who write to me for advice end their letters that way. It’s not offensive; it simply means the person is asking for a reply.

How do you MEASURE COCONUT? Tightly packed in the measuring cup, like brown sugar; or loosely measured, like flour and sugar?


Patrick C., Colville, Wash.

Good question, Patrick! Grated or flaked coconut should be lightly added to a measuring cup, then gently patted down. Add more if needed, and level off the top.

Today’s Crossword Puzzle

Brown sugar is different. It should be packed firmly down into the cup, to remove any air bubbles. Don’t overfill or crush the ingredients — they should not be hard to remove from the measuring cup. Thinking about coconut makes me want to bake a cake! One of my favorites is Heloise’s Chocolate Sauerkraut “Surprise” Cake. For this recipe, as well as recipes for Red Velvet Cake and Mother’s Tomato Soup Cake, send $3 and a long, selfaddressed, stamped (66 cents) envelope to: Heloise/Cake, P.O. Box 795001, San Antonio, TX 78279-5001. When coating a pan while making a chocolate cake, flour can make the cake look, well, not so pretty. So, instead of flour, use cocoa! Give it a try. Heloise

For Better or For Worse


P.S.: Any leftover coconut? Sprinkle some on fresh-cooked pancakes or waffles!


Dear Heloise:

In response to your recent column about not overdoing your perfume, I have worked in hospital settings and would like to remind your readers that they should refrain from wearing perfume when visiting patients. Scents can be very upsetting (literally) to anyone who isn’t feeling well. Many medical facilities advise staff not to wear perfume. I can’t tell you how often I get on an elevator or just walk down a hallway and am overwhelmed by the perfume smell of someone who had gone ahead of me. Virginia P., Baton Rouge, La.

Hello! Today it was time to empty two partial liquid- laundry-detergent containers into one. I didn’t have a funnel to fit the detergent bottle.

In the pantry, I spotted some little kids’ cardboard cone-style party hats left over from a party. I cut the pointed end to fit snugly into the detergent bottle. No detergent burps or spills, and the used “funnel” went into the garbage. Mary, via email

Dear Heloise:

Here’s an easy way to make a homemade air freshener: All you do is slice some lemons into a pot of water and let it come to a boil. Turn the heat off and let sit on the stove. The aroma will waft through your home, giving a wonderful citrus smell. M.G., via email

Stocks edge higher as Syria, oil worries linger Roswell Daily Record

NEW YORK (AP) — The stock market edged higher Wednesday as investors continued to focus on the likelihood of a U.S.led attack on Syria. The Dow Jones industrial average rose 68 points, or 0.5 percent, to 14,844 in early afternoon trading. The Standard & Poor’s 500 index gained nine points, or 0.5 percent, to 1,639. The Nasdaq composite rose 26 points, or 0.7 percent, to 3,605. The escalating tensions between the U.S. and Syria hit the stock market hard Tuesday, sending the Dow down 170 points. Traders pushed gold to a three-month high and crude oil rose to its highest level in a year and a half. The quick rise in the price of oil has worried investors. Costlier oil almost always translates into higher fuel expenses for businesses and consumers, weighing on consumer spending and the economy. While Syria produces little oil, a regional conflict in the Middle East could lead to supply disruptions in an area where half the world’s proven oil reserves lie. “When you add it all up — the problems in Libya, Egypt, Syria — you’re looking at 3 million barrels a day in potential production outages,” said Nick Koutsoftas, a commodities-focused portfolio manager at Cohen & Steers. Oil rose $1.03, or 0.9 percent, to $110.03

a barrel. It went as high as $112 a barrel overnight. Energy companies were among the biggest gainers in the S&P 500. Shares of oil producer EOG Resources rose $4.39, or 3 percent, $160.66. Dow component Chevron climbed $3.04, or 2.6 percent, to $121.80. While the selling in stocks appears to have abated for now, the overall trend for the market has been down over the last couple of weeks. The S&P 500 has lost 4.6 percent since reaching an all-time high on Aug. 2, while the Dow is down 5.6 percent. Fund managers said investors will have little reason to enter the market until next week’s employment report or until the Federal Reserve holds its mid-September policy meeting. “You may be watching stock prices, but you’re not placing any orders in this market,” said Chris Hyzy, chief investment officer at U.S. Trust. Before Syria grabbed the headlines, the focus had been on the Federal Reserve and whether the central bank was going to pull back on its massive bond-buying program, which has kept interest rates extremely low. If oil prices remain at these elevated levels, the Fed may have to delay easing back on its bond purchases, said Quincy Krosby, market strategist with Prudential Financial.

Nintendo cuts price of Wii U game console New Mazda6

WASHINGTON (AP) — Nintendo Co. announced Wednesday that it is cutting the price of its Wii U video-game system as it braces for the fall release of competing consoles from Sony and Microsoft. Nintendo will reduce the price of the Wii U deluxe set from $349.99 to $299.99, effective September 20. The company will also release a Wii U bundle featuring “The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD,” a remake of the 2003 game, that will also be available September 20 for $299.99.

The Wii U has struggled to find an audience. Nintendo sold 3.61 million of the consoles between the Wii U’s launch last November and the end of June. The company aims to sell 9 million Wii U units over the fiscal year through March 2014. Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-Aime said in an interview that consumers who have bought the Wii U “love the system” but want more software. Nintendo’s game releases for the rest of 2013 include “Super Mario 3D World,” “Donkey Kong

Country: Tropical Freeze,” “Wii Party U” and “Wii Fit U.” “As long as we create high-quality software we will be able to drive our business,” Fils-Aime said. Regarding the price cut, he said: “Now is the right time to offer better value. This sets us up for a strong holiday season.” Sony’s new console, the PlayStation 4, is due November 15 with a $399 price tag. Microsoft has not announced an exact launch date for its new Xbox One, which will cost $499. Nintendo also announced

poised for gains

a new handheld gaming device that will join its successful DS line. The Nintendo 2DS, coming Oct. 12 for $129.99, will play all DS and 3DS games — although it will not display the latter games’ threedimensional graphics. Like Nintendo’s DS models, the 2DS has two screens; unlike them, it does not fold up. Fils-Aime said the 2DS is intended to appeal to “the entry-level consumer looking for lower priced access to a fantastic library.”


Agile and poised, the new-for-2014 Mazda6 midsize sedan is a major leap over its predecessor in styling, features and fuel economy. Gone is the ho-hum, Toyota Camry-like exterior. In its place is a handsome, rakish look and larger tires. The five-seat Mazda6 interior looks nicer, too, with soft-touch plastic all around and nearly an inch more rear legroom than its predecessor. Front seats now have anti-whiplash head restraints, and push-button start is standard on all models. Thanks to a more fuel-efficient, gasoline four cylinder, the federal government rates the 2014 Mazda6 at 26 miles per gallon in city driving and 38 mpg on the highway, when fitted with a six-speed automatic. This compares with just 21/30 mpg for a similar 2013 Mazda6. Additionally, when equipped with an optional energy-reclaiming system, the 2014 Mazda6 is rated by the federal government at 28/40 mpg. Best of all, the new Mazda6 feels stable and controlled, but not heavy. Traveling at good speed on mountain switchbacks, the test car was well behaved and poised. The Mazda6 also is a recommended buy of Consumer Reports magazine, which says predicted reliability should be above average. Pricing hasn’t changed much from last year. Starting manufacturer’s suggested retail price, including destination charge, is $21,785 for the base, frontwheel drive 2014 Mazda6 Sport with 184-horsepower, four-cylinder engine and six-speed manual transmission. This is up from last year’s $21,520.

Advice for small companies: Take stock, take risks

NEW YORK (AP) — The economy is showing signs of life and that makes it a good time for small business owners to re-evaluate how they are running their companies. Now that crisis mode has passed, owners need to make sure they’re ready to take advantage of growth opportunities on the horizon. Experts say it’s time for owners to think about taking some risks and to make sure that they are taking care of employees. There’s evidence that owners are more confident. Nearly half of small
