Romney accepts Republican nomination

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Republican Mitt Romney has a message for the millions of Americans who voted for Democratic President Barack Obama: It’s OK to be disappointed. The biggest moment of his political career at hand, Romney looked to appeal to the feelings of anxiety that are rippling through the electorate as the nation faces stubbor nly high unemployment and fears about its future place in the world. “Hope and change had a power ful appeal. But tonight I’d ask a simple question: If you felt that excitement when you voted for Barack Obama, shouldn’t you feel that way now he’s President that

Obama?” Romney said as he formally accepted the Republican presidential nomination Thursday night. “You know there’s something wrong with the kind of job he’s done as president when the best feeling you had was the day you voted for him.” In 2008, Obama swept to victory with a message of hope and change — and as the first black person to earn the nomination of a major party, his candidacy was historic. He won in states like Virginia, Indiana and North Carolina, turning out African-Americans and excited young people in record numbers. To win, Romney needs to convince some of those voters that “hope and change”

didn’t really work out — and that he is the man to fix the problem. “To the majority of Americans who now believe that the future will not be better than the past, I can guarantee you this: If Barack Obama is re-elected, you will be right,” Romney said. Aides said the speech was the most important of Romney’s political career and will forever change his family’s legacy. In winning his party’s presidential nomination, the for mer Massachusetts governor has succeeded where his father failed a generation ago.

A state police officer marks off the distance following a one-vehicle wreck of a pickup truck traveling northbound on North Main Street between Pine Lodge and the bypass, Thursday morning. The truck was hauling a large liquid tank on a trailer when the trailer began to fish tail, hitting a curb which caused it to become airborne, which flipped the truck and tossed the tank about 30 feet into an adjacent field. There were no injuries.

The Roswell Police Department is planning to take its recruitment program on the road this fall. A trip to Michigan has been approved, which will last from Oct. 8 to Oct. 15. Sgt. Jim Preston and Of ficer Erica O’Bryon, along with two officers who made a lateral transfer from Michigan, will travel to 11 different academies across the state to speak with classes. “The classes run between 35 to 50 students, which means we could talk with up to 350 potential candidates,” O‘Bryon said. She explained that Michigan’s system of training is different from New Mexico’s where the students pay between $5,000 to $10,000 to get their certification.

“Once they are certified (in their home states), they then become a lateral transfer.” O’Bryon referred to them as committed to their careers because of the investment they have made in their education. The benefits for Roswell is that the successful applicant only has to go through the certification by waiver course in Santa Fe and not the 22-week basic training in New Mexico’s Police Academy. As a result they will be ready to go on the street sooner. “People ask us why we are going all the way to Michigan, but in the three years we’ve been recruiting in Michigan we’ve had 65 percent success with Michigan officers staying with the department compared to 33 percent recruits we get locally.” She said that 11 of the

officers they have on staff originated in Michigan.

While the desire of the Roswell Police Department to have its own attorney is overwhelmingly supported by the City Council, there has been much debate about where the money will come from to fund that position. During a police committee meeting, Thursday evening, of which Councilor Savino Sanchez is chair and councilors Barry Foster and Jeanine Corn-Best are members, discussion on the issue lasted around an hour. Deputy Chief Brad McFadin and Chief Al Solis presented a job description, which McFadin indicated was not set in stone, for the attorney position. Under that description, the minimum See ATTORNEY, Page A3

Suzy Wood retires

Of ficers R yan Craine, who has one year with RPD, and Scott Wrenn, a two-year veteran, have been selected to accompany Preston and O’Bryon. “They are good officers and real go-getters,” she said. “Once we get there, we will split up into two teams so we can cover all the entire state.” Each one of the classes where they will speak will have graduated by the end of November, the beginning of December. “We will conduct our preliminary interviews while we are there. We have 14 positions left, and we hope to fill all our open positions by the end of the trip,” O’Bryon said.

Boy Scouts serving Roswell faithfully Lopez trial under way

This article is one in a series of stories focusing on local agencies that receive support from the United Way of Chaves County, which is currently conducting its annual fundraising campaign. CHAUNTE’L POWELL RECORD STAFF WRITER

The Boy Scouts Conquistador Council has been serving the Roswell community faithfully for nearly a century. Many don’t know all that they do, and according to District Director Jim Bethel, that’s just how they like it.

“We have projects going on all the time, rather than try and focus on one big thing,” he said. “We prefer to be behind the scenes doing lots of little things as the needs arrive, which sometimes doesn’t work to our benefit because no one knows we’ve done it. But we’re not here for praise, we’re here for service.” This mission of the Boy Scouts is “to help young people make ethical and

moral choices over their lifetime by instilling in them the values of the Scout oath and law,” with service being a key component in a Scout’s experience. Bethel said the Scouts undertake various projects in the community and log a certain amount of hours of service before moving up in rank. The activities can be as simple as a Scout cleaning an elderly neighbor’s yard, to the more intensive Eagle projects, which he said require a couple hundred hours of See SCOUTS, Page A3


Joel Cordoba-Lopez, 21, was bound over for trial in District Court Tuesday after noon by Judge John J. Halvorson on charges of two counts of vehicular homicide and one count of reckless driving. Lopez is the suspect in an accident that occurred in the early morning hours of Aug. 5 that killed two people at the intersection of Southeast Main Street

and Brasher Road. According to the criminal complaint filed in Magistrate Court, the white Cadillac Escalade careened into the 2007 Hyundai Sonata, which was waiting at the stoplight. The Escalade then drove up and over the smaller vehicle. The driver escaped on foot, leaving Mandy Miranda, 30, and her son Joe Albarez III, 5, dead at the scene.

Weakening Isaac hovers over water-logged Louisiana

People rescue cows from floodwaters after Isaac passed through the region, in Plaquemines Parish, La., Thursday.

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Isaac hovered over Louisiana for a third day Thursday, shedding more than a foot of additional rain that forced authorities to hurriedly evacuate areas ahead of the storm and rescue hundreds of people who could not escape as the rapidly rising waters swallowed entire neighborhoods. The huge spiral weather system weakened to a tropical depression as it crawled inland, but it

caught many places of f guard by following a meandering, unpredictable path. The storm’s excruciatingly slow movement meant that Isaac practically parked over low-lying towns and threw off great sheets of water for hours. “I was blindsided. Nobody expected this,” said Richard Musatchia, who fled his water-filled home in LaPlace, northwest of New Orleans. Inside the fortified levees that protected New

Orleans, bursts of sunshine streamed through the thick clouds, and life began to return to normal. But beyond the city, people got their first good look at Isaac’s damage: Hundreds of homes were underwater. Half the state was without power at the one point. Thousands were staying at shelters. And the damage may not be done. Even more rain was expected in Louisiana before the stor m finally drifts into Arkansas and Missouri. Isaac dumped as much as 16 inches in some areas, and about 500 people had to be rescued by boat or high-water vehicles. At least two deaths were reported. Five feet of water poured into Musatchia’s home before a neighbor passed by with a boat and evacuated him and his 6-year-old boxer, Renny. He piled two suitcases, a backpack and a few smaller bags onto the boat and said that was all he had left. He abandoned a brand-new Cadillac and a HarleyDavidson. “People have their generators, because they thought the power would

go out, but no one expected” so much water, Musatchia said. Other evacuees were picked up by National Guard vehicles, school buses and pickup trucks. Daphine and David Newman fled their newly decorated home with two trash bags of clothing. They have lived in their subdivision since 1992 and never had water in their home from previous storms, not even Hurricane Katrina. The comparison was common since Isaac hit on the seventh anniversary of the devastating 2005 storm, though the differences were stark. Katrina was more powerful, coming ashore as a Category 3 stor m. Isaac was a Category 1 at its peak. Katrina barreled into the state and quickly moved through. Isaac creeped across the landscape at less than 10 mph and wobbled constantly. David Newman was frustrated that the government spent billions of dollars reinforcing New Orleans levees after Katrina, only to see the water inundating surrounding regions. “The water’s got to go somewhere,” he said. “It’s

Roswell Daily Record

going to find the weakest link.” The sudden call for evacuations so long after the storm made landfall provoked a debate about whether anyone was to blame. Jefferson Parish Council President Chris Roberts said forecasters at the National Hurricane Center in Miami needed a new way of measuring the danger that goes beyond wind speed. “The risk that a public official has is, people say, ‘Aw, it’s a Category 1 storm, and you guys are out there calling for mandatory evacuations,”’ Roberts said. Hundreds of people in lower Jefferson chose to ride out the storm — and many of them had to be rescued, he said. Eric Blake, a specialist at the hurricane center, said that although Isaac’s cone shifted west as it zigzagged toward the Gulf Coast, forecasters accurately predicted its path, intensity and rainfall. He did say the storm came ashore somewhat slower than anticipated. Blake cautioned against using Katrina as a bench-

mark for flooding during other storms. “Every hurricane is different,” Blake said. “If you’re trying to use the last hurricane to gauge your storm surge risk, it’s very dangerous.” Along the shores of Lake Ponchartrain near New Orleans, of ficials sent scores of buses and dozens of high-water vehicles to help evacuate about 3,000 people as floodwaters lapped against houses and stranded cars. The water rose waisthigh in some neighborhoods, and the Louisiana National Guard worked with sheriff’s deputies to rescue people stuck in their homes. In LaPlace, a Coast Guard helicopter plucked a couple and their dogs from a home after storm surge gushed into their neighborhood and washed many houses away. Crews intentionally breached a levee that was strained by Isaac’s floodwaters in southeast Louisiana’s Plaquemines Parish, which is outside the federal levee system. At the same time, water at a dam farther north in Mississippi was released in an effort to prevent flooding there.

Celebrate Labor Day with a free jazz GOP group pulls ad buy for Wilson concert at Spring River Park & Zoo CHAUNTE’L POWELL RECORD STAFF WRITER

Spring River Park & Zoo, Roswell Adult and Senior Center and Pecos Valley Jazz Festival are hosting a free jazz concert at the zoo on Monday, Sept. 3. Spring River Park & Zoo director Elaine Mayfield said that when she found out the Roswell Symphony Orchestra was unable to perform this year, she contacted the local Roswell Jazz Festival committee and asked if they would like to put on a free concert that the community is used to having. Michael Francis, the Roswell Jazz Festival artistic director, sprang into action, putting together a seven-member Dixieland Jazz band called The Roswell Jazz Festival Seven. Their goal, accord-

ing to Mayfield, is simply “to introduce the community to the world of jazz and make them lifelong lovers of jazz.” Francis will man the piano and will be joined by a veteran ensemble. On tuba is New Mexico State University music professor James Shearer, and on drums is Rick Malichi or “El Paso.” Bobby Black, Jay Thomas and Pierre Poree are all bringing their musical talents from San Antonio. Black will be the band’s banjoist/guitarist, Thomas will play the trombone and Poree the clarinet. Rounding out the seven-man group is Larmon Maddox, of Austin, playing the trumpet. Before the concert, parents and kids have the opportunity to visit the Instrument Petting Zoo and

lear n about the various instruments used by the band members.

The concert is free to the public and Mayfield encourages everyone to bring their blankets, chairs and picnic meals and get a taste of what’s to come. She said, “we couldn’t be more excited or pleased to partner with the Roswell Jazz Festival to provide a sneak peek of what is to come at the 2012 Roswell Jazz Festival and such quality music entertainment to treat the Roswell community in celebration of Labor Day.” The Instrument Petting Zoo will open at 4 p.m., and the actual concert will take place from 5:30 to 7 p.m.

a Buck 119 knife. The victim valued the items at $575. •Police were dispatched to the 1500 block of North Missouri Avenue, Wednesday. The victim reported three television sets, valued at $50 each, were stolen from a residence.

Found property

An officer cleaning out his unit, Wednesday, discovered a “marijuana pipe” in the back seat of his vehicle. The same day a second officer found drugs inside his unit. The report stated that the officer located a clear plastic baggie. Inside the first baggie was a sec-

ond black plastic bag, which contained a broken pill. The officers booked the pipe and drugs into the police property room.


Police were dispatched to the 512 block of Redwood Street, Wednesday, after two Craftsman palm sanders, valued at $320, were taken from a backyard.

ALBUQUERQUE — The National Republican Senatorial Committee has pulled plans for a $3 million ad buy to support New Mexico Senate candidate Heather Wilson, a move widely seen as acknowledgment that the state has tur ned less competitive than the GOP has hoped in both the Senate and presidential races. Party and campaign officials confirmed that the committee has canceled previously reserved air time. The move comes as environmental groups supporting Wilson’s Democratic opponent, Rep. Martin Heinrich, have spent nearly $1.5 million attacking Wilson. “It is significant,” said Brian Sanderoff, president of New Mexico’s largest political research and polling company, Research & Polling in Albuquerque. Inter nal polls must be tur ning against Wilson, Sanderoff said.

“The Republican Senatorial Campaign Committee, like all groups, has limited resources, so they carefully target their

expenditures to the states that they perceive as being most competitive, which either means holding on to a current seat or displacing a Democrat. And they are pragmatic in their decisions. So what it all means is that they feel their money could be better spent elsewhere,” Sanderoff said. The NRSC is shifting the money to a tightening Senate race in North Dakota. Still, the group could come back to New Mexico later. Some political groups reserved time early, fearing that if the presidential race was close here, all available air time for political ads would be snapped up. But New Mexico is no longer considered a battleground between President Barack Obama and Republican nominee Mitt Romney. “This is a very fluid election season all across the country and it is highly likely spending decisions will be made and remade by outside groups multiple times in the coming weeks,” said Wilson campaign

Chris spokesman Sanchez. “We will keep focusing on jobs and getting our economy back on track and running our race.” Indeed, both candidates have been campaigning aggressively since the day after the May primary. They are vying to succeed retiring Sen. Jeff Bingaman, a Democrat. Environmental groups jumped in with ads attacking Wilson almost immediately. According to the Center for Responsive Politics’ campaign spending website, the National Wildlife Federation Action Fund, Defenders of Wildlife Action and others have spent nearly $1.5 million against Wilson. Additionally, the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee has spent $141,415 on ads in the Senate race. Still, Wilson is not without her own television defenders. The U.S. Chamber of Commerce and the American Crossroads political action committee have spent nearly $1 million combined to support her, according to the website.

Day matchup against President Barack Obama, Romney is now trying to broaden his appeal and connect with women and with middle-of-the road voters who will ultimately decide his fate. To do so, he struck an often soft tone laced with deeply personal themes. He drew from Mormon faith and the influence of his mother and father — both dead for more than a decade — when he faced the Republican National Convention and a primetime audience. “My mom and dad gave their kids the greatest gift of all — the gift of unconditional love.

work. Convincing young men to give up their Saturdays to do community service isn’t always an easy task, but Bethel said the key is showing them that they’re serving with a purpose as opposed to just going out and doing different chores. He said they use different techniques such as the patrol method. This entails putting the scouts into groups and patrol leader and assistant patrol leader are named. In addition to accomplishing a task, those in charge are developing and sharpening their leadership skill. The Scouts have the opportunity to ear n 300 badges, from the more traditional camping and hiking badge, to the newly added video game badge. Bethel said each time a Scout goes through the process of earning a badge,

deeply about who we would be, and much less about what we would do,” Romney will say, according to prepared remarks released by the campaign. George Romney, a Michigan governor, ran for the Republican presidential nomination in 1968 when Romney was a young man. His mother, Lenore, ran unsuccessfully for the U.S. Senate in Michigan in 1970. “My mom and dad were true partners, a life lesson that shaped me by everyday example. When my mom ran for the Senate, my dad was there for her every step of the way,” Romney said. The remarks were delivered on a stage that puts him a little bit closer to the crowd inside the convenand advice throughout the entire process of the court system, legal updates and provide law/legal training to members of the police department.” RPD and city officials have not identified an exact number for salary of employee. Around 2004, the city switched from having an in-house attor ney, who was full time, to placing the contract for those legal services out to bid. Judy Pittman was selected to perform those services on behalf of the city. Pittman later hired current City Attorney Barbara Patterson. “As part of that we increased the contract amount because we were getting additional services within that time frame,” said City Manager Larry Fry. Roughly three years ago, Patterson left he’s not just performing a task, but acquiring skills he may possibly use in the future. “There’s a method to earning the badge, there are steps that they have to do,” he said. “They have to read, which helps their literacy, they have to comprehend and understand and apply what they’ve learned as a future employment possibility.” Funding from the United Way helps keep the Boy Scouts active and learning. Bethel said money from the foundation is used for various needs such as supplementing the money paid by Scouts for summer camps and training programs for leaders. “They allow us to function, they allow us to grow,” he said. “ The United Way money is used to help us in our recruiting efforts, to get more kids into our pro-


tion hall. His campaign hopes the evening ends with Americans feeling a little bit closer to the Republican presidential candidate, too. On this night, they told Romney’s story

The entire evening — from the physical staging to the speakers’ program to the planned whole-family entrance after Romney’s big speech — was aimed at introducing the sometimes stiff and distant politician as a businessman, Olympic savior and deeply religious family man. His pitch to his party, as well as to the many undecided voters who are disappointed in the country’s direction, will be that he’s the candidate better able to shoulder the country’s economic burdens. Pittman’s fir m and city broke the contract into two pieces: around onethird of the work was handled by Pittman and the other two-thirds were handled by Patterson. “The amount of the contract reflected that as far as dollars paid to each,” Fry said. About a year ago, Pittman decided to discontinue her contract. The contract was then rebid, with Patterson being selected to fulfill both contracts. The amount of the two contracts totals $213,950 annually. Now, with the prospect of the addition of a police attor ney, certain councilors have suggested whether it’d be best to include this position within Patterson’s contract. The police committee discussed this option in addigram. The United Way money helps us conduct our programs.”

Membership expansion is the next goal of the Boy Scouts Conquistador Council. They track their member numbers in terms of density, or the percentage of total amount of kids in the area. Bethel said they recently hit around between five and seven percent of the total number of kids in the area. The future goal is to get that number up to 15 percent. He is confident they can get that number up.

“We know we can,” he said. “Because we are a non-profit organization, we depend on adult volunteers to help and that is our single, biggest limiting factor.”

The testimonials were deeply personal.

One couple, Ted and Pat Oparowsky, told the crowd about their 14-year-old son David, dying of cancer, who Romney would visit in the hospital. He bought the boy fireworks, helped him write a will, and, at David’s request, delivered the eulogy at his funeral. Another woman, Pam Finlayson, talked about her daughter, born three months premature — and Romney, her church pastor at the time, would come to the hospital and pray for the little girl. “Like a lot of families in a new place with no family, we found kinship with a wide circle of friends through our church,” Romney, who met both families through his church, will tion to reconstructing the contract to start fresh and hiring the police attorney on as a city attorney. Since last week, Best said she’s spent almost every day or after noon meeting with “either a lawyer, a policeman, a judge, a district attorney, to find out exactly what this entails.” Best said she interviewed around six police officers. “I found out quite a bit of information that some of the work is not getting done where it needs to be getting done. I feel that we really don’t need to go and find the money. The money is there,” she said. “We need to take it out of the city attorney’s contract and hire your attor ney that way.

He discussed his Mor mon faith, particularly his time helping struggling families when he served as a church leader in Boston. To prepare for the big night, Romney spent months making meticulous notes about his experiences campaigning. He read numerous previous convention speeches and talked to a number of close friends and confidants about how to approach his

The mayor reasoned that Patterson’s work load has increased significantly. “We’re here because the scope of work has changed. It’s increased. And in my estimation if everything within the city gover nment had stayed equal to what the scope of work was at that time, then yes, I could see where the expectation is to get all the work done within that contract. But it hasn’t worked like that,” he said. Patterson said she herLopez when he attempted to enter the country from Ciudad de Juarez, Mexico, to El Paso, Texas.

WWII surrender with USS New Mexico in attendance

SANTA FE — As part of our centennial coverage, the following is the Japanese surrender ceremony ending World War II. On Sept. 2, 1945, Japan made formal the surrender it had declared on Aug. 15. The ceremony occurred aboard the USS Missouri in Tokyo Bay. The Japanese delegation, unable to find any vessel seaworthy enough to take them into the bay, boarded an American destroyer to take them on the 16-mile journey. An impressive 258 Allied warships filled the bay, making it one of the most formidable displays of naval power ever assembled in one anchorage. Many more could have joined them, but it was an invitation-only event for warships that had distinguished themselves in Pacific battles. The Battleship New Mexico was there, honored for her service in the Gilberts, Marshalls, Solomons, Marianas, Philippines and Okinawa. In her last two battles, she suffered three kamikaze hits, killing a total of 83, including the




commanding officer, and injuring 206. Also present was Gen. Jonathon Wainwright, the beloved commanding officer who remained in the Philippines after MacArthur left. Wainwright, who had endured all the prison camp atrocities experienced by his troops and looking like a skeleton, was quickly rescued from a prison camp in China and brought to the ceremony. He took a place of honor, near MacArthur and reportedly received the first ceremonial pen when MacArthur signed the surrender document as the Supreme Commander of Allied Powers in Japan. The Navy was not impressed

that MacArthur became supreme commander or that he would conduct the surrender ceremonies. MacArthur’s promotion made it appear that the Army had won the war in the Pacific and not the Navy. Obviously, it took both, but neither wanted to admit it because the two services were completely separate entities. Had Japan not created the same problems for itself, our divided command would have caused us even more problems. And the only reason the Air Force wasn’t part of the argument was that it wasn’t created until 1947. The solution to the Navy’s displeasure was to have MacArthur conduct the ceremony aboard a Navy ship. And to get President Harry Truman’s cooperation in the deal, the vessel chosen for the surrender ceremony was the Battleship Missouri. Instead of being conducted on the broad fantail of the Missouri, the signing took place on a narrow

Roswell Daily Record

quarterdeck, around a worn table from the ship’s galley, covered by a coffee-stained green tablecloth. The ceremony was short, which pleased both MacArthur and the Japanese. Another indication of evident downplaying of the ceremony was that the American officers wore khaki uniforms, the British wore shorts. Our other allies wore dress uniforms. The Japanese wore top hats and tails. That’s an interesting progression from those who had the most to do with winning the war to those who lost. Although the ceremony was simple and understated, it was followed by a massive show of strength, as 1,900 Allied aircraft came roaring overhead. Following the Aug. 15 surrender declaration by Emperor Hirohito, it took two weeks before the first American soldiers landed in Japan. Air drops to prison camps had been occurring and agents from the Office of Strategic Services had parachuted into prison camps to keep order until troops

arrived. One of the first tasks of the soldiers who landed was to get to the airfields to remove propellers from Japanese aircraft. There still was unrest among many of the military and a fear that mutinous kamikaze pilots might make a lastminute bid for immortality during the surrender ceremonies. The first stage of the occupation was to provide for the care of Allies who had been held captive. It was accomplished as quickly as possible because our troops were clamoring to get out and families back home wanted to know of their loved ones. The Battleship Missouri can be visited in Honolulu by going to Pearl Harbor and taking a shuttle. Tours are conducted of various parts of the ship. Or one may go directly to view the surrender location and listen to a recording of MacArthur’s words. (Write to Jay Miller at 3 La Tusa, Santa Fe, NM 87505; by fax at 9840982; or by e-mail at

National Opinion

Congress shamefully dragging its feet

There’s not only another recession on the horizon, but your U.S. Congress is helping put it there. The nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office predicted recently that continued inaction on tax and spending policy by Congress “would lead to economic conditions in 2013 that will probably be considered a recession.” Bush-era tax rates are set to expire next year, raising taxes on millions of Americans. Meanwhile, Congress, in the hopes that a deadline would inspire it to actually cut federal spending thoughtfully, set up a system of blunt and potentially very damaging automatic across-the-board spending cuts that take effect in January. The combination of tax increases and spending cuts, writes The Associated Press, would mean “in effect sucking roughly $400 billion out of a U.S. economy that is already struggling.” All this happens unless Congress takes action. Economic experts say the uncertainty of it all is helping tamp down economic activity now. What we are seeing today must be particularly galling to the remaining veterans of World War II, who gave us the best years of their lives to defeat tyranny on two ends of the globe. That our “leaders” in Washington can’t muster the mere mettle to balance our budget, or even talk with each other in a rational way to avoid what some are calling “Taxmageddon” next year, is an insult to the men and women who once made this the greatest nation on Earth. Shame on all of those responsible. Guest Editorial The Augusta (Ga.) Chronicle

Neil Armstrong

It is difficult to separate the man from the mission. Neil Armstrong, the first man to walk on the moon, is dead. But what he did and the familiar words he spoke remain embedded in the minds of those who witnessed his small step and giant leap on July 20, 1969. They will remain engraved in history for as long as there is recorded history. Armstrong, who died at 82 of complications from heart surgery, didn’t seek fame, and for decades he actively avoided it, living quietly in southwestern Ohio, where he died Aug. 25. But he couldn’t avoid being famous, because he earned it. In a day when vacuous people are famous (and become rich) for simply being famous, Armstrong represented the best of a more authentic age. Armstrong well knew that he did not get to the moon and back on his own. But what he never said is something that the rest of us sensed: He wasn’t the only man who could have succeeded, but was a member of a select few. He succeeded because he was smart, coordinated, dedicated, educated and cool under pressure. He was all those things in measures that most of us could only dream about or, well, envy. Guest Editorial The Vindicator, Youngstown, Ohio DEAR DOCTOR K: I’ve read that early treatment of autism can make a big difference. But what are the early signs of autism? DEAR READER: You’re right — my colleagues who are experts in autism say that early recognition and treatment really can help. Autism (also called autism spectrum disorder, or ASD) is a developmental disorder of the brain. Kids and adults with autism have problems communicating and interacting socially. They also may have unusual behavior patterns, interests and activities. Symptoms range from mild to severe. Autism symptoms are usually apparent by the time a child is 2 or 3 years old.

Top 10 reasons not to re-elect Obama (Part 3) In 2010, President Barack Obama confessed to ABC News’ Diane Sawyer, “I’d rather be a really good one-term president than a mediocre twoterm president.” But what if Obama’s one term was not good but bad for the country? The past two weeks, I’ve given the first eight reasons not to re-elect President Obama. Though I would encourage readers to read the details in each of those points, here they are in summary: 10) Obama’s economic actions have failed to lower the unemployment rate in the U.S. to less than 8 percent for the past 42 months, which is a record.



What should you look out for? Children with autism may not show signs of it during their first year. Those who do may not hit typical developmental milestones on schedule. For example, they may not smile at the sound of their mother’s voice, point out objects to catch someone’s attention or maintain eye contact. And they may respond



9) The Obama administration’s out-of-control spending has led America to the economic brink and destroyed our country’s credit rating. 8) Obama’s reckless spending and fiscal policies have added more to the national debt than most U.S. presidents combined — roughly $6 trillion in his first term in office (mak-

negatively to being touched or cuddled. Behaviors become more apparent in toddlers and young children. For example: — Disordered play. A toddler with autism usually prefers to play alone and is unlikely to engage in makebelieve play. He or she may spend hours repeatedly laying out objects in lines or concentrating on one object or topic. Any attempt to divert the child can provoke an emotional outburst. — Disordered speech. A child with autism may not speak much or may remain silent. When the child does speak, the words may echo someone else’s words. Speech patterns may be unusual.

ing the total debt nearly $16 trillion and, by White House projections alone, $21.3 trillion by the end of fiscal 2017, $25 trillion in 2021 and $25.9 trillion in 2022). 7) Obama has detrimentally increased not only the costs of entitlements but also the dependency of citizens upon government subsidies rather than empower the people’s autonomy, responsibility and freedom. 6) Obama demeans private enterprise and the entrepreneurial spirit — the very heart of America. 5) President Obama has left the U.S. in a weaker and more disrespected position in the

— Repetitive behaviors. A child with autism may repeat the same phrase or a particular motion. He or she may sit and rock back and forth, lick objects repeatedly, become fascinated by objects like the swinging pendulum of a grandfather clock, or certain lights, or the flame on a gas burner. — Abnor mal behaviors. Children with autism may develop obsessive routines. They may become intensely preoccupied with something. They may become hyperactive, aggressive, destructive or impulsive, or intentionally injure themselves. — Absence of expressive-

ness, lack of joy. Children with autism express few emotions other than anger with much frequency. They don’t appear to be joyful even when they are doing something they are clearly interested in — not even if they are given something they love, like a coveted toy. They often don’t show affection to members of their family. If you observe any of these behaviors, contact your child’s pediatrician. Symptoms can improve with intense treatment. Treatment should include some combination of education, behavioral management, medication, speech and

cern to every American citizen is that President Obama has described the Constitution as “an imperfect document ... a document that reflects some deep flaws ... (and) an enormous blind spot.” He also said, “The Framers had that same blind spot.” In so doing, the president established a rationale and justification for disregarding, disavowing and disposing the Constitution from oversight and obedience in his administration and decisions, which he swore to uphold when sworn in to office. To add insult to injury, Obama places himself above the Constitution and those “blind Framers,” who just couldn’t see the big picture as he does today. After all, he’s the constitutional scholar, and the Framers were just, well, the creators of the document! Today the Constitution tragically conforms to and serves the White House’s political whims, not vice versa. It’s time we stop that constitutional chaos and return to the founding principles, limited government and taxation, and freedoms of our early republic, whether we like them or not. 1) Four more years of President Obama will not only fundamentally transform but also unravel the very fabrics of our republic as our Founding Fathers knew it and as we know it. On the eve of Obama’s election, he promised that he would “fundamentally transform the United States of America.” He wasn’t kidding. And he’s well on his way. Imagine what four more years of Obama unleashed would bring, when there would be no re-election to face or consequences to bear. Imagine no more. WorldNetDaily’s Jerusalem bureau chief Aaron Klein has just published a groundbreaking expose and look into exactly what would happen in a second term with Obama. “Fool Me Twice: Obama’s Shocking Plans for the Next Four Years Exposed,” WND explained, “is based on exhaustive research into Obama’s upcoming detailed presidential plans and policies as well as the specific second-term recommendations of major ‘progressive’ groups behind Obama and the Democratic leadership — the organizations that help craft legislation and set the political and rhetorical agenda for the president and his allies.” From crumbling down American sovereignty by giving sway to U.N. rule and European socialism to clamping down on

Second Amendment gun rights and passing the Freedom of Choice Act — the sweeping bill that would abolish all prolife regulations across the nation, from parental notification laws to bans on federal funding of abortion — our republic would be in deep, deep trouble with Obama at the helm for four more years, because he would complete his fundamental transformation of the United States into a completely progressive European-socialist state. Fellow citizens, America is out of time, out of money and indebted up to its ears, and our economy and unemployment rates are in the tank. We can’t afford a single day more of President Obama — especially knowing that every day, his administration adds $4,179,115,306 of debt (on top of the existing spending and debt). The fiscal actions of Obama’s federal government are diametrically opposed to those of America’s founders, who adopted the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution. Thomas Jefferson could have been writing to us today when he wrote in 1816 to Samuel Kercheval, roughly 40 years after the creation of the Declaration of Independence: “We must make our election between economy and liberty, or profusion and servitude. If we run into such debts as that we must be taxed in our meat and in our drink, in our necessaries and our comforts, in our labors and our amusements, for our callings and our creeds, as the people of England are, our people, like them, must come to labor sixteen hours in the twenty-four, give the earnings of fifteen of these to the government for their debts and daily expenses, and the sixteenth being insufficient to afford us bread, we must live, as they now do, on oatmeal and potatoes; have no time to think, no means of calling the mismanagers to account; but be glad to obtain subsistence by hiring ourselves to rivet their chains on the necks of our fellowsufferers.” The Declaration of Independence could have been speaking about President Obama when it stated, “In every stage of these Oppressions we have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble Terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated Injury. A Prince, whose Character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant is unfit to be the Ruler of a free People.” Follow Chuck Norris through his official social media sites, on Twitter @chucknorris and Facebook’s “Official Chuck Norris Page.” He blogs at © 2012 Chuck Norris

Mabel Childs Butler

Mabel C. Butler, 99, passed away Monday, Aug. 27, 2012. The last surviving child of Alva and Dora Childs, she was bor n in Wakefield, Neb., on Jan. 15, 1913. Four brothers and one sister preceded her in death. No local services are planned. Graveside services will be held in Spokane, Wash., at a later date. Like her siblings, Mabel’s passion was education. Following her graduation from the University of Nebraska, with a B.A. in biological science and a minor in history, her teaching career encompassed the full gamut; from one room, multiple-grade elementary schools in rural Nebraska, to teaching senior -level high school history students, and ending her career in Spokane, teaching third-graders. Mabel married William R. (Ray) Butler, in 1940. While Ray was overseas for two years, during World War II and on active duty service in the U.S. Navy, Mabel worked as a claims examiner for the Navy Department in Washington, D.C. After the war, Ray and Mabel settled in Spokane, where Mabel resided until 2002. Ray passed away in 1996 at the age of 84. Soon after that, Mabel decided to move to Roswell in order to be closer to her daughter Linda and her family. Survivors include daughter and son-in-law, Linda and Stan Phipps, of Roswell; grandson Peter Phipps, of Albuquerque; granddaughter and husband Jennifer Phipps and Ted Calhoon, and greatgrandson Ethan Keane Calhoon, of Annapolis, Md. Mabel is also survived by her loving nephew and nieces, Paul Ethridge, of Rockville, Md., Janet Risseeuw, of Madrillon, Va., Mary Childs Leeper, of Lakewood, Colo., Ellin Childs Hayes, of Littleton, Colo., and Polly Childs Rogers, of Highlands Ranch, Colo. A son, Stanley Butler, also survives her. Special thanks to Jennifer Madison, R.N., and her staff at Bee Hive Assisted Living for their extraordinary love and devoted care during the last year and 10 months of Mabel’s life. Stella, Elsa and Hanna, her Bee Hive “sisters,” were a constant source of friendship. Endear ments include Dora Brown, her Roswell neighbor and “sister;” and exceptional friends, Johnny L ynch, Jan Runyan, Martha Leyba and Debbie Trujillo. Each of these individuals touched Mabel’s life in a unique way. Mabel was a woman who embodied the values and courtesies of her time. She loved flowers, birds and music. She was an artist

OBITUARIES/RECORDS and teacher, not only in the classroom, but also of the many lessons of life. Mabel loved being a mother, grandmother, and a greatgrandmother. She loved sweets, nature, and going to the orchards of Greenbluff, Wash., to pick fresh fruit for her pies and jams. A friend once said, “My children only met Mabel once, but every time they call me they ask about her.” She had a smile that brightened and war med every room she entered and came from a time when people routinely answered the phone with a cheerful “good morning” or “good afternoon.” In lieu of flowers, please make a gift to the charity of your choice.

Juanita LaTurner

Juanita “Nita” Grace LaTurner, 91, longtime resident of Roswell, died on Aug. 24, 2012, in New Braunfels, Texas. Born on May 10, 1921, to Sallie Mae Rainwater and Charles Weldon Hickman in Quinton, Okla., Nita graduated from Central High School in Tulsa and completed a secretarial course at a local business school. On Oct. 28, 1939, she married Lewis Fred LaTur ner, her steadfast partner for nearly 58 years of marriage until his death in 1997. In 1952, Nita and Fred moved to Roswell, where they raised their five children. Although children and homemaking kept her as busy as a full-time job, Nita contributed a generous amount of time and effort to several community programs, including the Girl Scouts of America and her Women’s Club fundraising for charities. The LaTur ners left Roswell for a few years when Fred’s job moved them to Colorado, then Idaho, and later to Florida. They returned in 1973 to reestablish their Roswell roots. When Fred became the manager of the Roswell Country Club, Nita took over the coordination of events and the publication of the club’s newsletter. After Fred’s retirement, she accepted a position with the New Mexico Military Institute Foundation. Nita and Fred enjoyed their free time together by camping with friends and visiting their children and grandchildren. They also traveled to Mexico, England, France, Ger many, Austria, the Bahamas, and the Dominican Republic.

When Nita took up running at age 70, she blazed a trail for many older women. She entered the New Mexico Senior Olympics and set state records in the 100 meter and 5K events. Her running career peaked at National Senior the Olympics in Orlando, Fla., in 1999. “Go for the gold, Granny!” She heeded her great-granddaughter’s cheer and won the firstplace medal in the 5K competition. All her life, Nita glowed with a vibrant spirit that enlivened her community, charmed her friends, and inspired her family. She had a special talent for making each person feel like her favorite. Her brilliant paintings expressed both indomitable joyousness and her love of nature’s beauty. Every one of her descendants cherishes her artwork and honors the legacy of her wisdom about love, relationships, loyalty, and tolerance. Nita is survived by her children, Mike and Eileen LaTurner, of Albuquerque, Pat and Dick Cox, of Spring, Texas, Fred and Nancy LaTurner, of Albuquerque, Beth and David Malitz, of Austin, Texas, and Laura and Tony Takach, of Fischer, Texas; 27 grandchildren, 29 greatgrandchildren, and one great-great-granddaughter. Her sister, Vivian Hickman Brock, of Springdale, Ark., also survives her. She was pre-deceased by her husband Lewis Fred LaTurner Sr.; a great-grandson Kody Hudson; two sisters, Geraldine Hickman Riddle and Laura Hickman Bruffy; and one brother, Charles “Junior” Hickman. The family will greet guests at a reception at the First United Methodist Church of Roswell, 200 N. Pennsylvania Ave., at 9 a.m., on Saturday, Sept. 1, 2012, followed by a funeral service at 10 a.m. Nita will be buried next to her husband in South Park Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations to the Alzheimer’s Association at Condolences may be offered online at Nita’s children wish to thank the LaGrone Funeral Chapel for their coordination of the funeral arrangements.

McCartney to play Motown piano

DETROIT (AP) — In town for a concert last summer, Paul McCartney made his first-ever visit to Detroit’s Motown Museum, the legendary two-story “Hitsville USA” building where a generation’s worth of musical gems were created. McCartney, a contemporary of Motown stars such as Stevie Wonder and Marvin Gaye, “was just thrilled to be in the space,” said Lina Stephens, the museum’s curator, who gave McCartney and his bandmates a guided tour that day. McCartney was also excited to come across a pair of pianos. “He came to the first piano — even though there’s a sign on it that says, ‘Please do not touch’ — he went up and played the piano,” Stephens said. “He said, ‘I’m sorry I have to,’ and he played.” When the group arrived at Studio A — the famed Motown recording studio — McCartney found piano No. 3. This one, though, had a cover over the keys. He was told it couldn’t be played due to deterioration, and McCartney moved on. The next day, he called with an offer to have the damaged 1877 Steinway grand fully restored. More than a year later, that process has been completed. The restored 9-foot Victorian rosewood will have its coming-out party at a Sept. 18 charity event in New York City before returning to its home on West Grand Boulevard in Detroit. McCartney and Motown founder Berry Gordy will play the piano at the New York event, dubbed “Project: Harmony,” said Motown Museum Board of Trustees Chairwoman Robin Terry, Gordy’s grandniece. The event will benefit the Motown Museum. “We’ll unveil the piano and then the two of them will play the piano, and we’ll have some fun and leave it to them to make of that what they will,” Terry said.

Coyote girls fall to Valencia, 5-0 Section

Roswell Daily Record


Sometimes the breaks just don’t go your way. Unfortunately for the Roswell girls soccer team, Tuesday night was one of those instances.

The Coyotes couldn’t capitalize on first-half scoring opportunities and Valencia pulled away with four second-half goals in a 5-0 Jaguar win at Cielo Grande. The first half was evenly matched as both teams


were able to muster good runs at goal, but finding the back of the net proved difficult for different reasons. For Valencia, the goose egg came courtesy of a handful of saves from Roswell keeper Mariana

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — No. 9 South Carolina and coach Steve Spurrier got a big scare to open the season. Marcus Lattimore and Connor Shaw helped the Gamecocks grind their way through past plucky Vanderbilt. Lattimore ran for two touchdowns and 110 yards in his first game back after tearing his left ACL, and Shaw ran for 92 yards while playing the second half with an injured shoulder as No. 9 South Carolina rallied for a 17-13 victory against Vanderbilt on Thursday night. Shaw bruised his right, throwing shoulder late in the first half and missed the first two series of the third quarter before returning. Lattimore scored the goahead TD on a 1-yard run with 11:25 to go. Vanderbilt had plenty of time to attempt a comeback, the last with 5:08 left. But The Commodores turned it over on downs with 1:47 to go when Jordan Matthews couldn’t handle a fourth-down pass from Jordan Rodgers.

Flores. Twice in the first 15 minutes, the Jaguars had one-on-one opportunities that Flores stuffed out. For Roswell, the missed opportunities were just as excruciating as four shots on breakaways just missed their mark.

Valencia broke the stalemate with a fortuitous goal in the 32nd minute. The Jaguars’ Kaitlynn Craig rifled a shot from the edge of the box, but Flores was able to get both hands on it

Warriors beat Capitan for first win Roswell’s Jesse Jennings (8) is cut off by Valencia keeper Haley Baca (bottom) during the first half of their match, Thursday.


Gateway Christian volleyball coach Kerri Pirtle missed her team’s first match of the year because of a family emergency. She returned Thursday to see plenty of good things from her team. The Warriors swept Capitan in three sets, 25-15, 25-14, 26-24, at the Red Rock Warrior Center to even their record at 1-1 on the year. “This is actually the first game that I’ve gotten to go to, so I was rather pleased with what I saw,” Pirtle said after the win. “Offensively, we took more attacks than I thought we would have, that was a good thing. And our passing was good enough that

we could take those attacks. I was happy.” She had good reason to be happy, especially in the first two sets. Her team raced out to a 14-4 lead in the first set thanks to five aces and three kills and never led by fewer than six en route to a win. The Warriors got to set point, 24-13, on a kill from Katie Schultz and won the set 25-15 when Capitan’s Jordan Smith sent an attack deep of the end line. The second set was lopsided as well. Gateway seized a 9-6 lead with a run of five in a row that included two aces and two kills and was never really threatened. After Gateway went up 22-11, the two teams traded points until Smith sent

Local briefs: Bobcats fall to Elida

ELIDA — Hager man dropped its first match of the year 3-1 on Thursday in the debut of first-year coach Monica Morales. The Bobcats won the first set 26-24, but Elida answered by winning the next three sets, 25-10, 2520, 25-16. “I thought we served well,” said Morales about the positives. “We just kind of got caught with younger kids in there. Otherwise, I thought we played fairly well.” Taylor Hamill had 10 kills and 10 digs, Jamie Ward had eight assists and five blocks, Jessica Rodriguez had eight digs and Jessica Franklin had four blocks. Corona 3, NMMI 0 The Colts fell to 1-2 on

the year on Thursday with a home loss to Corona at the Godfrey Athletic Center. The Cardinals picked up the sweep with wins of 2521, 25-18 and 25-23. “It was (a tough loss). It’s a home game and, of course, we wanted to come out on top. It just didn’t work out for us,” said Colt coach Stephanie Schooley. “Corona did a great job. They had some really great servers and they were moving us around on the court.” Dora 3, Lake Arthur 0 DORA — Lake Arthur fell in three sets in its season debut on Thursday under new head coach Rebecca Villalva.

a serve into the net on set point to give the Warriors the win. Capitan battled in the third set and held three leads late, but Gateway rallied each time. The Tigers had leads of 21-20, 23-22 and 24-23, but couldn’t put the set away the latter of the three. Instead, Lizzie Worrall delivered a kill to tie the game at 24. Schultz then dropped in an ace to get Gateway to match point and Shreea Mistry closed things out with a kill up See FIRST, Page B2

Broncos face stiff test with No. 8 Iowa Western KEVIN J. KELLER RECORD SPORTS EDITOR

New Mexico Military Institute’s meatgrinder of a schedule gets no easier this week when the Broncos make their first road trip of the 2012 season. The Broncos square off with perennial Midwest Football Conference power Iowa Western at the Mile High Shootout at the Neta and Eddie DeRose ThunderBowl on

Zeke Montoya is back for Artesia, so expect the Bulldogs to rely heavily on him in the run game. ... Artesia should be amped after last year when the Bulldogs recorded their worst record since a 55 campaign in 2000. ... Lovington never rebuilds, it just reloads; and they’re reloading from another state championship, the third straight under Quinones.

COACHES Dexter, Frank Sandoval; Texico, Ryan Autrey LAST YEAR Texico won 34-7 WHAT TO WATCH Dexter put in more time at camps over the summer and have high hopes that the work will pay off in Sandoval’s third season. ... Amador Amaya is back to captain the ship at quarterback, but the Demons need to find someone to replace Bryant Jimenez. ... Texico will be driven by a stinging loss to a team the Wolverines beat in the regular season (eventual state champion Santa Rosa).

Tiger Stadium (Capitan), 7 p.m. RECORDS Hagerman 0-0; Capitan 0-0 COACHES Hagerman, Casey Crandall; Capitan, Collin Justiss LAST YEAR Capitan won 34-31 WHAT TO WATCH Hagerman returns nearly every player from last year’s team that battled through a 2-8 campaign. ... Alejandro Ramos improved dramatically throughout last season and should be quite a weapon under center for Hagerman. ... Last year’s meeting was a barn burner and this year should be no different.

Andrew Meeks gets to fill Miller’s shoes, but he should have plenty of weapons in RB Nathan Bishop and WR Jacob Moody. ... Mountainair’s expectations are high this year; they return a bulk of last year’s squad and the loss to Gateway in the semifinals has only served to fuel the Mustangs’ fire.

the right sideline. Gateway’s only bugaboo on the night was service errors (12), but even that was of fset by the Warriors’ 13 aces. Pirtle said serving has been something of a focus in practice. “We did (have a lot of service errors) and that’s something we’ve been running a lot for in practice the last couple of days. ... Some of my consistent servers were not very consistent tonight. It’s hopefully something that is

going to continue to improve as the season goes on.” Jordan Menagh’s performance at the net was maybe the most impressive part of Gateway’s victory. “I threw her in at the last minute. I was going to play her on the right side, like she normally would play, but I decided just before we came out of the locker room to throw her on the outside,” Pirtle said. “She did great. She adjusted and she had a lot of kills for us.” Menagh led the Warriors with six kills.

and deflect it upward. Despite the effort, the ball snuck below the cross bar and into the back of the net, giving Valencia a lead it wouldn’t relinquish. In the second half, the Jaguars poured it on with four goals. Part of the reason for the flurry of second-half goals was breakdowns from the Roswell defense, who will be without its leader Alicia Romero for the remainder of the season due to a torn ACL. “Alicia is a huge loss, but that is no excuse for our back line to be disconnected like it was today,” Roswell coach Samantha Ward said. “We pulled Alyssa Cox back and she has to be the big person in the back along with Abby Contreras.

The offensive line needs to produce if Roswell wants to avoid the dreaded “rebuilding year.” ... Carlsbad is loaded with talent, including quarterback Rodney Holcomb. ...

SATURDAY’S GAMES Reserve vs. Lake Arthur


Roadrunner Stadium (Santa Fe), 1 p.m. RECORDS Reserve 0-0; Lake Arthur 0-0 didn’t know where our players were and we were just disconnected.” At the beginning of the match and at halftime, Roswell coach Samantha Ward tried to change things up, but said her young squad struggled with the adjustments. “We have to lear n to make adjustments,” she said. “We came out today with a new formation, different than Tuesday. Right away the girls freaked out, so we had to change it back. At halftime, we made an adjustment and the same thing. “They just don’t know how to make adjustments and we are so young that we freak out for no reason. We have to take a step back and go back to the basics and start all over again I guess.” Roswell’s next match is Tuesday at Gadsden at 3 p.m.

The rotation at quarterback for NMMI worked well last week, so it will be interesting to see if it can work against one of the better defenses in the NJCAA. ...

take that away from my mother. To this day, my siblings say mean things about Dad, claiming he was a “terrible” father and husband. I’m a lot younger than the rest of them, so it’s possible I never saw the bad side of him. The father I knew was a caring, loving man, and it drives me crazy to hear my siblings speak ill of him. They don’t remember his birthday, the date of his death or even how long ago it was. Abby, I don’t know what to do. If I go ahead and bury my dad’s ashes now, I feel I will be losing him completely. Please help me. I feel so lost. SAD AND MISUNDERSTOOD DAUGHTER


DEAR ABBY: My father died eight years ago. Mother couldn’t afford to bury him at the time, so he was cremated. Mom asked me to keep his ashes until her time was up so they could be buried together. I have had them ever since. It makes me feel like he is still with me, that I have not totally lost him. However, over the last year, my brothers and sisters have led my mother to believe that I won’t respect her wishes to have them buried together when the time comes. She is pressuring me to bury him NOW. It hurts me that my family could even think I would

DEAR DAUGHTER: Perhaps there is a way to satisfy everybody. Before returning your father’s ashes to your mother and siblings for burial, take a small portion to keep for yourself. Your feelings are not all that unusual — and contrary to popular belief, not all ashes are scattered or buried. Sometimes they are retained for decades by family members who



are not yet ready to part with them. #####

DEAR ABBY: About a year ago, I began a parttime job for extra cash. My manager and I developed an attraction for each other that soon led to a sexual relationship. The problem is that he’s married with two children, and he is significantly older than me. I know now that this has to end. I have no emotional ties to him, but I think he is starting to care for me. I can’t quit the job because a family member got it for me, and it would seem suspicious if I quit. Please respond soon because I am trying desperately to avoid being alone with him, and it’s becoming more and more difficult. How do I end the affair and remain on decent terms with this man? NEEDS A QUICK OUT

DEAR NEEDS: It’s difficult to remain on decent terms after there has been indecent exposure, but tell your manager your conscience demands that the hanky-panky stop. Then, if he tries to get you alone, tell him, “Nothing

Dear Readers: Many students across the country are now back at college or heading that way. LAUNDRY can be a big problem! This may be the first time some are doing their own. Here are some Heloise Laundry 101 hints for laundry newbies: * Sorting is vital. Wash same-colored fabrics together: darks, whites, etc. * Don’t stuff the machine too full! The clothes won’t get clean. * If doing laundry at a self-service laundry facility or dorm laundry room, check the machines BEFORE putting in your clothes. Someone may have left a red sock that will turn your whole load of whites pink! * Pin socks together to keep from losing one. Fasten bra hooks together to prevent snagging, and turn jeans inside out to prevent fading. * Read the care instructions for clothes. They will last much longer if cared for properly! * Don’t carry a whole bottle or box of detergent. If using liquid, put only what’s needed in clean yogurt cups. Or for powder detergent, pour some in a sock or zipper-top bag. Stains, stains and more stains seem to be what happen to students while at college. Removing a stain can save a favorite shirt or jeans.

Dear Heloise: Why do batteries — AA, AAA, C, etc. — have expiration dates? Can they be used beyond the date, and if so, how long after? Sharon in Illinois

Sharon, yes, you can, but be aware that there is a chance the battery might leak, and if it does, it can ruin the device. The batteries also could not work or might not last very long if used after that date. Depending on the battery, it can have a shelf life of between five and 10 years. Batteries made today are not like your grandmother’s. They are manufactured to last longer. If it is in an appliance, check regularly for signs of wear, and replace when needed.

Great idea! You can hang sun catchers or ribbon on the window as well. We have a lot of birds and darling “buzz bombers” (humming birds) that sometimes hit the window. I taped several strands of thin ribbon (about 6 inches long) on the glass, and it seems to deter them. Heloise

Retailers report best sales growth since March

NEW YORK (AP) — This summer, Americans were walking contradictions: They opened their wallets despite escalating fears about the slow economic recovery and surging gas prices. A group of 18 retailers ranging from discounter Target to department-store chain Macy’s reported August sales on Thursday that rose 6 percent — the industry’s best performance since March — according to trade group International Council of Shopping Centers. At the same time, the government released numbers showing that Americans spent in July at the fastest clip in five months. The news appears to show that what Americans say and do are two different things: The reports come two days after a private research firm said consumer confidence in August fell to its lowest level since November 2011 as Americans grew more concerned about the job market, business conditions and the overall economy.

Roswell Daily Record

“This is bit of a head scratcher,” said Mark Vitner, a Wells Fargo Securities senior economist. “This runs counter to most of the other data related to the consumer.” But Roxane Battle Morrison, 50, said there’s a logical explanation for the paradox. The Plymouth, Minn., resident said she is more worried about the economy, but she spent in August for one reason: she needed to help her 18-year -old son Jared get ready for college. So, Morrison, who produces videos for a nondenominational church, has stashed money away every month over the past year to save nearly $1,300 to buy him books, sheets, a futon bed, and other dorm room accessories. “I was counting every nickel, looking at every price tag,” she said. That consumers like Morrison are spending is an encouraging sign, but that they are doing so hesitantly is something retailers and economists will be watching closely. Consumer spending

accounts for 70 percent of economic activity. And while only a small group of merchants representing roughly 13 percent of the $2.4 trillion U.S. retail industry report monthly revenue figures, the August numbers still offer a glimpse at how Americans are spending. The revenue gains in August, which only factor in stores that were open at least a year, are better than the 4- to 5-percent increase Wall Street predicted at the beginning of the month. And it was the industry’s best per formance since March, when stores collectively posted a gain of 6.8 percent. Indeed, the New Yorkbased Conference Board’s Consumer Confidence Index fell to 60.6 in August, down from a revised 65.4 in July. The index now stands at the lowest point since November 2011 when the reading was at 55.2. It’s also still far below the 90reading that indicates a healthy economy. Several factors may have

dampened consumers’ moods in August. Gas prices, which had fallen sharply from a peak of $3.94 in April, have begun rising again in the last few weeks. And the jobs and housing markets are showing only modest signs of improvement. Additionally, there are no signs that the job market will significantly improve anytime soon. The applications of people applying for unemployment benefits are a measure of the pace of layoffs. When they fall consistently below 375,000, it generally suggests that hiring is strong enough to lower the unemployment rate. Most economists say stronger growth is needed to produce enough jobs to lower unemployment — and make Americans feel better. The economy grew at an annual rate of 1.5 percent from April through June, down from 2 percent in the first quarter and 4.1 percent in the fourth quarter of 2011. Despite their concerns

JACKSON HOLE, Wyo. (AP) — Every August, the world’s financial markets shift their attention from the centers of global commerce — New York, London, Tokyo — to a mountain valley in northwest Wyoming. On Friday, they will hear a speech by Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke. So how did Jackson Hole, Wyo., come to wield such outsize importance in global economic affairs? In a word, trout. For four years starting in 1978, the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City hosted an annual conference at different sites and different times of year. The event drew little attention outside the insular world of economic analysts. Inspired by a conference the Boston Fed held near a picturesque New Hampshire site where the tearjerker “On Golden Pond” was filmed, the Kansas City

Fed held its 1981 conference in scenic Vail, Colo. Still no luck. The Vail meeting drew the conference’s smallest crowd ever. Officials at the bank pondered how to draw bigger names and more attention to the yearly confab. That’s when they set their sights on Paul Volcker, then chair man of the Federal Reserve in Washington. They decided to pursue Volcker by dangling the prospect of one of his favorite pastimes: fly-fishing. They needed to find a sure-fire trout-catching spot somewhere in the Kansas City Fed district, which covers Colorado, Kansas, Nebraska, Oklahoma and Wyoming, as well as norther n New Mexico and western Missouri. They considered somewhere in Colorado. But a fly-fishing expert said Colorado’s waters were too warm for trout in August. Go farther north, he said.

about the snail’s pace by which the economy is recovering, Americans are spending, which could boost an economy mired in subpar growth. The Commerce Department’s report released Thursday showed consumer spending rose 0.4 percent in July from June, following no change in June and a slight decline

in May. Income grew 0.3 percent, matching the gains from May and June. “The results show that the consumer isn’t dead,” said Ken Perkins, president of Retail Metrics, a research firm. “Let’s face it. There are a whole series of economic headwinds that they are fighting against.”

Jackson Hole isn’t even a town. It’s a valley. The biggest town, Jackson (population 9,710), lies at the southern end of Jackson Hole. Arches made of elk antlers mark the entrance to the town square. The Fed conference itself occurs farther north, in a lodge in Grand Teton National Park, about 50 miles south of Yellowstone National Park.

The event now draws 140 people every year, including some of the biggest names in economy and finance. They come to enjoy breathtaking views of the Grand Teton mountain range and Jackson Lake, to hike and fish and to engage in intellectual combat in the halls of the Jackson Lake Lodge.

platforms, or 85 percent of manned platforms in the Gulf of Mexico. Workers have also been pulled from 50 drilling rigs, or 66 percent of the total, the agency said. Energy consultant Jim Ritterbusch said traders are good at accounting for the risk of tropical storms and hurricanes, which are a regular fact of life in the Gulf of Mexico. The bigger issue for the price of oil, he said, was the potential for news from the Federal Reserve on Friday. Investors will be listening to Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke’s speech for hints of additional steps to spur borrowing and spending. Meanwhile, the average price of gasoline rose more than 2 cents on Thursday to $3.826 per gallon. Isaac has forced several refineries along the Gulf Coast to close, and others are operating at reduced rates.

JOSHUA FREED AP BUSINESS WRITER The price of oil fell Thursday as producers assessed the impact of Hurricane Isaac and traders waited to see if the Federal Reserve would act to boost the economy. Benchmark oil fell 87 cents to finish trading at $94.62 in New York. Oil companies evacuated many Gulf of Mexico platforms and refineries in advance of Isaac, which blew through as a hurricane before being downgraded to a tropical storm. They were assessing damage on Thursday. Some 95 percent of the daily oil production in the Gulf of Mexico has been shut down, according to the Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement. The federal agency said workers have been evacuated from 509 production

The shift was made. And what’s been known since 1982 as the Jackson Hole Economic Symposium took its place in economic lore.

You might choose not to share what is going on. Focus on your daily routine in order to stay grounded. You might be better able to judge what is happening from this perspective. Tonight: Hang out your “Not Available” sign. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) ##### You could encounter strong reactions fr om others. As you witness a lot of changes, you’ll feel at peace. You know how you feel and what you are going to do. Listen to what is being suggested, but ultimately count on yourself. Tonight: Where people are. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) #### You might want to understand where others are coming from, especially because they seem hyper. You want to help people, but in order for that to happen, they need to listen to your ideas. You are not in the mood to debate. Tonight: To the wee hours.

and they’ve got a good scheme on offense and defense. “I’m expecting it to be a fight all the way to the end.” The Reivers are led by sophomore quarterback Jake Waters and he’s as good as they come at the junior college level. “He’s a good player,” Forchtner said. “I think the biggest thing is experience because he’s a redshirt sophomore. ... We’re going to have to account for him at all times.” Waters saw limited time in the Reivers’ rout of APU Cole last week, but he’ll be calling the signals from beginning to end this week in Iowa Western’s wide-open spread offense. “If I compared them to anyone on of fense, it would be Oregon. They are pretty wide open and very multiple; they can get the ball into different people’s hands,” Forchtner said about the Reivers of fensive attack. “It’s tough (to prepare for their offense) because we didn’t exchange game film this year.

where he or she is coming from. If this person becomes difficult, do not push. A little empathy will go much further. Maintain a sense of humor, yet keep communicating ... even if you feel frustrated. Tonight: Hang out. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) ##### You could choose to juggle various concerns, and you might need to do just that. Today's Full Moon is far more challenging than you realize, especially concerning others and anything involving finances. Nothing is written in stone at the moment. Be direct in your dealings. Tonight: Dance away your problems. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) #### Your energy could determine the near future in certain relationships. The good news is that generally you’ll err on the side of caution. Where other signs could get into a pickle, you are unlikely to be reactive. Tonight: Out with that favorite person. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) #### You might be struggling with all the demands of your daily life and the added high-voltage energy of today’s Full Moon. Know that this, too, will pass. Make no decisions, if possible. Play the waiting game until tomorrow. Tonight: Easy works. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) ####

It’s just about getting pressure on (Waters) when we can and try to make his reads as difficult as possible. And we’ve got to try to put a body on a body and, hopefully, when we get a chance, we can put him on the ground.” Waters has plenty of weapons to work with in the Reivers’ offense — nine different players caught at least one pass last week and seven had at least one rushing attempt. The go-to choices at wideout are Illinois recruit Martize Barr, Andrew Stone, Maryland recruit Deon Long and Geronimo Allison and Brock Hinkel at tight end. Allison led the team in catches and yards last week with four for 108 yards. Long had two grabs for 79 yards and Stone had three catches for 56 yards. In the backfield, Aaron Wimberley, who has already verbally committed to Iowa State, is the No. 1 option at running back with Vernard Roberts as the No. 2 option. NMMI looked solid in most aspects during the win last week against Air Force Prep. The glaring exception to that

Some of that was the first game; we had a lot of missed assignments and we definitely had a

lot of penalties. “Three of those penalties were late hits on the quarterback. That’s not a technique error, that’s a discipline error. I think, with a game under our belt, that stuff will get fixed.” Forchtner’s three keys to a win are simple — set the speed of the game, own the football on offense and defense and be
