On Syria, Obama blends threat, hope

WASHINGTON (AP) — In the run-up to a prime-time televised speech, President Barack Obama blended the threat of a military strike with the hope of a diplomatic solution Tuesday as he worked to rid Syria of an illicit stockpile of fearsome chemical weapons.



Secretary of State John Kerry set a hurry-up trip to Geneva for talks Thursday with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, and the United Nations Security Council first scheduled,

and then scrapped, a private meeting on steps to defuse a looming crisis.

Despite expressing skepticism about the outcome of the diplomacy, officials said, Obama and close Senate allies reaf fir med their decision for a pause in attempts to win congressional backing for a strike against President Bashar Assad’s government. And while a presidential statement to that ef fect was possible in Obama’s speech, nationwide

Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel pointedly told a congressional hearing it was not time to let the threat lapse. “For this diplomatic option to have a chance at succeeding, the threat of a U.S. military action, the credible, real threat of U.S. military action, must continue,” he declared. At the same hearing, Kerry said any diplomacy “cannot be a process of delay. This cannot be a process of avoidance.”

RPD to hold viewing UK councilors visit Roswell for recovered items JESSICA PALMER RECORD STAFF WRITER

The police are holding a viewing of items recovered following a number of vehicle burglaries. They are asking anyone who was the victim of a vehicle burglary between Aug. 19 and Sept. 5, to make a report of the incident and then come to the Roswell Police Department, 128 W. Second St., on Tuesday, Sept. 17, and Wednesday. Sept. 18, to claim any stolen property. Bringing a copy of the report is a must before any of the items can be claimed. The police receive an average of four reports each day about vehicle burglaries, but believe there may be more that go unreported. Items listed on the reports during the threeweek period from Aug. 19

to Sept. 5 include: a Lincoln welder, cookbooks, a Dewalt drill set, other power tools, hand tools and tool boxes, a gas cap, checkbooks, car radios, keys, sheers, a jumper cable, purses, wallets, insurance papers, car titles, prescription medication, electronics and a BB gun. Other items stolen included jewelry, two handguns, cash, shotgun, cellphones, lawn and garden tools, medical and student records, and two rolls of copper wire.

Some streets were particularly hard hit. The police took more than one report from Trailing Heart Road and North Montana Avenue. Other areas of town where vehicle burglaries were reported were:

Known as the UFO Capital of the World with its surreal number of sightings since 1992, Bonnybridge, Scotland is part of “The Falkirk Triangle,” an area between the cities Stirling, Fife and outer neighborhoods of Edinburgh. With about 300 sightings every year, Bonnybridge has drawn hundreds of tourists from around the world. Intrigued by how Roswell uses the 1947 sighting in correlation with the economy, Falkirk

Poll: Public doubts rise on privacy Richest 1 percent earn biggest share since ’20s WASHINGTON (AP) — Following disclosur es about the National Security Agency’s massive surveillance pr ograms, a majority of Americans believe the U.S. government is doing a poor job of pr otecting privacy rights, according to a new poll by the Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research. Close to 60 percent of Americans oppose the NSA’s collection of data on telephone and Internet usage. A similar majority opposes the legal process supervised by a secr et

federal court that oversees the gover nment’s classified surveillance. The American public is still anxious about terrorism as the 12th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks approaches. About six in 10 Americans feel it is sometimes necessary to sacrifice rights to confront terrorism. But suspicions about the government’s promises to protect civil liberties have deepened since 2011. Only 53 per cent now say the government does a good job of ensuring freedoms, compared

to 60 percent two years ago.

The shift in public attitudes follows a thr eemonth barrage of leaks to media organizations by Edward Snowden, the former NSA contractor who r eleased secr et documents about the surveillance agency’s inner workings.

In follow-up interviews after the poll, some respondents described Snowden as a criminal and an attention-seeker. Others called him a whistleblower.

WASHINGTON (AP) — The gulf between the richest 1 percent and the rest of America is the widest it’s been since the Roaring ’20s. The very wealthiest Americans earned more than 19 percent of the country’s household income last year — their biggest share since 1928, the year before the stock market crash. And the top 10 percent captured a record 48.2 percent of total earnings last year. U.S. income inequality has been growing for almost

three decades. And it grew again last year, according to an analysis of Internal Revenue Service figures dating to 1913 by economists at the University of California, Berkeley, the Paris School of Economics and Oxford University.

One of them, Berkeley’s Emmanuel Saez, said the incomes of the richest Americans surged last year in part because they cashed in stock holdings to avoid higher capital gains taxes that took effect in January.

Council meets Thursday, will vote on development changes JILL MCLAUGHLIN RECORD STAFF WRITER

City Council will meet Thursday to make four decisions to grant liquor license transfers or approvals to new eateries and a convenience store. They will also consider assuming ownership of a 44-acre property that was never developed into a planned-unit development by its owners. Councilors will decide whether to approve a transfer of ownership for a liquor license for Allsup’s Convenience Store at 1500 N. Garden Ave., and the transfer of ownership for Best Western Plus Sally Port Inn & Suites to sell alcohol. The Alcohol and Gaming Division granted a “conditional” preliminary approval for the Sally Port

Inn’s application. Carmines Italian Eatery, to be located at 625 N. Main St., has also applied for a restaurant liquor license to sell beer and wine. The restaurant has signed a five year lease, with an additional option for another five-years, with Krum Land and Cattle Company. Another restaurant, El Tapatio, at 3012 N. Main St., will ask for a restaurant liquor license to sell beer and wine. In other action, councilors are expected to decide whether to terminate a planned unit development, the Tierra Berrenda Development, a 44-acre site adjacent to the eastern side of the 3600-4300 blocks of North Main Street. The development was created in 1983. The owner

and developers at the time proposed a number of multi-family complexes that would access onto local streets and then onto Tierra Berrenda Drive that would lead on to Main Street. An open space area was developed in the flood plain of the Berrendo River on the north side of the development. The planned-unit development is divided into nine phases. One phase was built with homes. The remaining eight phases remained undeveloped for nearly 30 years. These were combined into one tract. The open space was dedicated to the city for flood plain management. The proposed street, Tierra Berrendo Drive, has not been constructed, laid out, or established. Future development of

the area will have to take into account new facts, such as flood management, residential density limits, traffic flow and permitted uses, according to the city’s report.

Councilors are also expected to consider renewing City Attorney Barbara Patterson’s contract for legal services. Patterson’s contract calls for paying her firm $12,784.92 per month.

The city will also reimburse her firm for any witness fees, services for process fees, investigative fees, expert witness fees, filing fees, subpoena fees, postage fees, bulk mailings, travel costs, long-distance telephone costs, outside legal counsel costs and fees incurred on behalf of the city.

Code Enforcement urges weed removal

Recent rains in Roswell have brought more than just water to the city, they have also produced an infestation of weeds. The city of Roswell Code Enforcement Department has experienced a high number of complaints about the overgrown weeds. “If residents would spend some extra time to take care of the weeds on their property, we could spend more time trying to enforce other issues in Roswell,” stated Mike Mathews, special services administrator for the city. Mathews says Code Enforcement officers have recently been spending the majority of their time addressing the issue of weeds and that there are a large number of properties in violation of the city ordinance that states that owners of the properties should not allow the weeds to grow to more than one foot in height. Weeds are not only unattractive and distract from the aesthetics and beauty of the city, but they could have the potential of becoming breeding grounds for mosquitoes and other insects. They also have the potential to cause health issues such as upper respiratory infections and aggravated allergies. Property owners are urged to eliminate weeds as soon as possible to enable both themselves and their neighbors a better quality of life and to avoid involvement from the City Code Enforcement. Physically able

individuals are urged to please try and help their neighbors, especially the elderly, in addressing the weed problem. For more information, contact Renée Roach, Keep Roswell Beautiful coordinator, at 637-6224 or Mike Mathews, Code Enforcement administrator, at 637-6298.

Animals must be restrained at all times

Roswell Animal Services has issued a reminder to residents about City Ordinance 4-36, which requires domestic pets to be controlled either by leash, cord or chain, not more than 10 feet in length in public spaces. During summer months, it is common and becomes more frequent for people with pets to take them on walks. Although the city encourages outdoor recreation, especially with pets, it is unlawful for any owner, possessor or keeper of any domestic pet in the city of Roswell to permit the pet to run at large within the city. A pet shall be deemed to be “running at large” when off or away from the premises of the owner, possessor, keeper, agent or a member of the pet’s immediate family. Owners who violate this ordinance may receive a citation including fines up to $150 plus court costs. This notice is issued as a public service announcement by the city of Roswell. For more information or to report a domestic pet running at large, contact Joseph Pacheco, Animal Control supervisor, at 624-6722.

Sen. Tom Udall, D-NM, and Rep. Steve Pearce, R-Dist. 2, say they are opposed to the use of U.S. military action in Syria over its use of chemical weapons against its own people. Udall said he was not assured that targeted military strikes would end U.S. involvement in the situation. “No matter what the administration says, this is an act of war,” Udall told New Mexico press Tuesday. “There is no end game here. Let me be crystal clear: If Iran attacks us, or our allies (following the strike)—we will respond.” A vote pushed by Sen. Harry Reid, DNev., stalled after diplomatic negotiations began taking shape with Russia, one of Syria’s biggest allies. A proposal for the Russian government to join with the international community in pushing Syrian’s Bashar al-Assad to give up his regime’s chemical weapons is “a positive step forward,” Udall said. Udall has received thousands of letters and responses from New Mexicans asking him to vote against using force in Syria, he said. “I plan to vote against this,” Udall said. “The international community isn’t with us. The U.S. people don’t support us.” Pearce also said he would vote against the use of force. “American soldiers and their families have sacrificed enough,” Pearce said. “American taxpayers have given enough. The rest of the world needs to step up— America cannot fight every battle.” Pearce’s office has heard from more than 1,000 New Mexicans opposed to U.S. military action, he said. Pearce is backing a proposal to block funding for any U.S. government department or agency that funds the use of force in Syria.

“It is the responsibility of Congress to use its constitutional authority to prevent this impulsive and misguided intervention,” Pearce said. Heinrich’s announcement Monday to support military action in Syria continues to draw criticism through hundreds of people commenting on his public social network site. In a letter, Heinrich said the U.S. has a “moral obligation to deter Assad and every regime watching him from thinking that they can gas their people with impunity, commit genocide, or employ internationally prohibited weapons.” “It is for this reason, and this reason alone, that I will support President Obama’s request for the authorization of the use of military force,” Heinrich said. Reps. Michelle Lujan-Grisham, D-Dist. 1, and Ben Ray Lujan, D-Dist. 3, said Tuesday they continue to assess the situation. They have not said if they support military action. “The situation in Syria is very complex, and we owe it to the American people to carefully consider all of the implications of any action we might take in response to the atrocities there,” LujanGrisham said. “Like many New Mexicans and Americans, I have serious questions I need answered before deciding what is in our nation's best interest.” Some 1,600 constituents have responded to a survey about the issue on Lujan-Grisham’s web site. Lujan said recent diplomatic developments involving Russia is a positive step. “If Syria is serious about fully complying in a timely manner so that these awful weapons can never be used again on innocent people, then the United States should give this diplomatic process an opportunity while working with allies on an international effort,” Lujan said.

Roswell has,” Buchanan said. “(Nicol and I) are both very wary between doing anything distasteful to the community.” And there is a fine line between tasteful and distasteful, he said. But with the photo and video evidence they have collected, the prospect of opening a museum is very appealing. Although this trip to the States was purely of their own accord, Roswell was of particular interest. The Falkirk Council is primarily interested in seeing how Roswell has used the UFO crash for economic development, Nicol said. Both men met with


Continued from Page A1

Mayor Del Jurney to discuss the matter. One thing they spoke with Mayor Jurney about was the possibility of a closer link between Bonnybridge and Roswell. “Both communities benefit if there is a stronger tie between them,” Buchanan said. The next step, they said, is to send a portfolio of information and keep in contact. With all the sightings, Buchanan said he has tried multiple times to get an answer from the government or Ministry of Defense, asking, “What is happening in the skies above Bonnybridge?” but to no avail. Still, even with 60,000

UFO sightings over the past 30 years, Buchanan said that is not the only link they have to Roswell. “There is far more to Roswell than the incident that happened years ago,” he said. “And Bonnybridge also has so much more to offer than just UFOs and sightings.” Nicol said if anything can be said about Bonnybridge, it’s that UFOs happen, but that the city is actually very diverse and has other reasons to be visited, such as historic architecture and buildings as well as a lot of Roman history.

Perhaps if America had a successful track record in the Middle East, President Obama’s appeal for a “limited” attack on Syria might carry more weight. But because our attention span in the region increasingly resembles that of a fidgety 4-year-old, an examination of recent history is in order. Consider Iran. In 1979, President Jimmy Carter supported toppling the shah, Mohammad Reza Pahlavi. Whatever the shah’s shortcomings, who believes the theocratic government of the ayatollahs, which replaced him, was better than the one we helped overthrow? At least the shah was not pursuing nuclear weapons or fighting proxy wars like Syria. Or Iraq. In 2003, President George W. Bush ordered an invasion of Iraq to topple Saddam Hussein and rid the country of weapons of mass destruction. Remember the Iraqi refugee codenamed “Curveball”? He was the main provider of “intelligence” that Saddam was pursuing WMDs. No WMDs were ever found. In 2004,

won’t repeat itself? Anyone who has spent time in the Middle East knows things are not always what they seem. Alliances and loyalties shift depending on who is most likely to win a power struggle. The secular West doesn’t fully comprehend the religious motivations of extremists who claim to love death more than life. Getting killed by missiles launched by people they regard as “infidels,” they say, transports them to paradise. How does America deal with that? Former Israeli diplomat Yoram Ettinger wrote to me in an email: “The Syrian threat to vital U.S. interests ... is a derivative of Iran’s regional and global megalomaniac aspirations. The focus must be on the source and not on the derivative! Shifting attention from Iran to Syria provides Iran with extra time to develop nuclear capabilities.” Exactly. The Middle East is imploding and if the U.S. continues with the fiction that it can make things better, or that freedom “is the hope of every heart,”

Obama ignores the lessons of US forays in the Middle East




“Curveball” was officially classified a “fabricator” by the CIA; too late for those thousands of Americans who died or were wounded. Now, President Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry say we can trust the intelligence on Syria. Do you? Even if the videos showing dead Syrian children are real and the intelligence is accurate, that is still not sufficient reason to attack Syria. Given our experience with Iran and Iraq — and the increased likelihood that growing instability in Afghanistan, Libya, possibly Egypt and even Lebanon might turn out unfavorably for the U.S., what makes anyone think history

Roswell Daily Record

as former President Bush likes to say, we will be sucked into its vortex with no escape. A recent headline in The Weekly Standard, which editorially favors a strike against Syria, branded the region “The Muddle East.” Reuel Marc Gerecht, a senior fellow at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, writes, “... Obama’s sensibilities — his early friendly outreach to Muslim despots and Iran, his reluctance to apply pressure to authoritarian Muslim rulers, and his obvious discomfort with the moral challenges of American power — made him particularly diffident. ... Barack Obama is now the American everyone in the region loves to hate.” Having proved the wrongheadedness of pacification (“pacification” also failed in Vietnam), the president seeks authority to push forward and repeat the mistakes of the recent past. The war we are in has less to do with Syria than with transnational forces like the Muslim Brotherhood and al-Qaida. Ettinger writes

that these radical groups “(aspire) to sweep the Middle East and beyond, first and foremost the remaining pro-U.S. Arab regimes such as Jordan, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia and other oil-producing Gulf states.” They will then come here. In fact, Clare M. Lopez, writing for the Gatestone Institute, a nonpartisan, not-for-profit international policy council, maintains there is ample evidence they have already infiltrated America, Great Britain and other parts of Europe. A limited strike on Syria will do nothing to stop them. Learning from history, listening to what they say and watching what they do and confronting this evil, rather than trying to pacify it, is America’s best option.

Minimum wage hikes take jobs

In big cities across the country, fast food workers are striking, demanding that their employers almost double their pay, from the federal minimum of $7.25 per hour to $15 per hour. Their action fits with the agenda of President Barack Obama, who wants to increase the minimum wage to $9 per hour. It sounds good, if you think money just appears from nowhere. It is much less appealing when you consider what it does to the economy and even how it affects unskilled workers. Where would the money come from to pay minimum-wage workers a higher rate of pay? It would come from the customers of those businesses. When the cost of doing business rises, those businesses have to raise the prices of their products. This happens across industries and across the economy. The result is inflation. Workers are making more money, but that money is only buying what their former wage purchased. But what if a business can’t raise prices? What if consumers won’t pay more for its product? Then that business will cut minimum wage jobs. Increasing the minimum wage makes it more expensive for businesses to hire and train workers. That makes them less likely to expand their workforces and more likely to cut back. Academics debate the effects of raising the minimum wage, and there is much competing research on how much such a raise affects employment. But one particularly applicable study looked at states that raised their minimum wage compared to those that did not. It found a loss of minimum wage jobs in those states that did increase their minimum wages. It is clear that the laws of supply and demand continue to apply despite government attempts to manage the economy. The federal minimum wage is an artificial control on the market system. It attempts to set a value on labor outside of how supply and demand set that value. The market then makes adjustments. Those adjustments include rising prices and falling employment. Activists and labor unions pushing this proposal act as if the money necessary to pay a higher minimum wage would be taken straight from the pockets of the richest “1 percent.” It wouldn’t. It would come from the general economy, an economy that is barely growing. It is true that the minimum wage has not kept up with inflation. But in industries and locations where the market has set a higher value on labor, employers are paying more than the minimum. Where the market has not set such a value, employers are still paying the federal minimum. Requiring the market to set a higher value on that labor will only spur businesses to raise prices and cut jobs.

I never told Jack Gilligan I loved him. But I’m confident he knew that I did, because



pumps the blood out to the body, the mitral valve closes, to prevent blood from flowing “backward” up into the left atrium. The two leaflets are directly between the left atrium and left ventricle. In mitral valve prolapse, however, a slight deformity of the mitral valve prevents the valve from closing nor mally. This appears as an abnormal floppi-

when it came to people or politics or policy, Jack knew almost everything. When he died last month, the obituaries recorded that he, a Democrat, had been a Cincinnati city councilman, a U.S. congressman and the governor who somehow was able in 1971 to persuade a Republican state legislature to enact Ohio’s first personal and corporate income tax, all of which is accurate. But to understand what was true about Jack Gilligan, we have to remember Mark Twain, who found it curious that physical courage was so much more common than

ness, or prolapse, of the valve. When the left ventricle pumps, the two leaflets get pushed back up into the left atrium. (I’ve put an illustration of a prolapsed mitral valve on my website, The result is that small amounts of blood leak back into the left atrium. It sounds serious, but in most people it actually has very little effect on the heart’s overall ability to pump blood. In some people, however, the leak worsens to create a significant backward flow of blood into the left atrium. This is called mitral regurgitation. People with severe mitral regurgitation can develop shortness of breath, fatigue and leg swelling. Mitral valve prolapse is a life-

moral courage, which Twain found quite rare. On the first week of April 1945, Navy Lt. Jack Gilligan, having already seen combat as a gunnery officer, was on the deck of his destroyer during the invasion of Okinawa when the first of three Japanese kamikaze planes flew directly into his ship. Scores of U.S. sailors were killed, wounded or missing. The ship’s guns, radar and communications were all knocked out by the suicide plane, the crash of which started a fire that threatened the destroyer’s own store of ammunition. Acting immediately and at

long condition, but most people who have it never have symptoms. The condition is discovered only when a doctor hears a certain clicking sound during a routine physical examination. This abnormal heart sound is related to the malfunction of the mitral valve. If you have mitral valve prolapse but do not have any symptoms, you will not need treatment. In the past, doctors recommended that people with mitral valve prolapse take antibiotics prior to certain surgical procedures and dental appointments, but the American Heart Association no longer recommends this. If mitral valve prolapse develSee DR. K, Page A5

great personal risk, Gilligan managed personally to get all the stored ammunition safely away from the encroaching flames and secured the safety of shipmates and his destroyer. For his bravery, Jack Gilligan was awarded the Silver Star. He more than passed the physical courage test. By 1968, Gilligan was 47 and the surprise U.S. Senate nominee in Ohio after his upset Democratic victory over the previously invincible Frank Lausche who had won five terms as governor and two terms in the Senate.

Vets cemetery update; Elks’ golf tournament Roswell Daily Record

This week’s column will focus on the Elk’s “Wounded Warriors” charity golf tourney set to “tee off” this weekend, Sept. 14, but first, I want to briefly make note of some positive news about the veterans’ cemetery project. Following last week’s visits by Rep. Steve Pearce and House Committee on Veterans Affairs’ Chairman Jeff Miller (R-Fla.), Gov. Susana Martinez and Secretary of NM Dept. of Veterans Services Col. Tim Hale, extremely positive movement is taking place on Roswell’s veterans cemetery project. New, positive, progressive plans are “now in the works,” spawned by the flurry of interested dignitaries and a steering group led by Jane Batson and Col. Ron McKay (with members including Bert Eldridge, Mayor Del Jurney, Will Cavin, Orlando Padilla and Harry McGraw). Two plans for the cemetery’s creation are evolving. One would be the long-term goal of a 5-acre “State Cemetery” under the Martinez /Hale initiative, and a shortterm, one acre project under the



Batson/McKay/Eldridge initiative to start burying our dead “sooner, rather than later.” Next week, I’ll expand on this and the local veterans health care initiative under way. Shifting gears, let’s talk (Elk’s Wounded Warrior Golf)! Tourney Chair man Ralph Brown commented, “For each of the past four and a half years the Roswell Elks Lodge No. 969 has hosted two charity golf fundraisers for our local community. These nine tour naments have generated (more than) $193,000 in sponsorships, with 100 percent of it being donated to local charities. This Saturday, Sept. 14, the Elks will be hosting our second

annual ‘New Mexico Elks Wounded Warrior Project’ Charity Golf Tournament. The NM Elks WWP exists to honor and empower Wounded Warriors from New Mexico who incurred service-connected injuries. The Roswell Elks Lodge is identifying local Wounded Warriors from any war; 100 percent of your donation will be used to assist local Wounded Warriors. If you know of a veteran who may qualify under the NM WWP, please contact Harry McGraw at 317-0579, or the Elks Lodge, and supply us with the information. Since our last NM Elks WWP charity golf tournament, we have assisted (more than) 18 local veterans with over $13,493 in assistance. Some of the local Veterans’ needs were: new hot water heater, fixing a swamp cooler, medicine and moving a Korean vet who couldn’t climb stairs from a second-floor apartment to the first floor. A complete list of assistance is available at the Roswell Elks Lodge. We have a goal of raising $20,000 for the NM Elks Wound-

Again, 100 percent of your donation will help individuals in our local community.” Per Harry McGraw, “Staff Sgt. Scott Lilley will be one of the honoree’s at this year’s benefit event. Scott, a former member of Minot AFB’s 5th Security Forces, was seriously wounded in Iraq in April 2007. Lilley, now of San Antonio, Texas, was on tour in 2009 for a Great American Country-TV special ‘“Stars For Stripes: Wounded Warriors Return.” Lilley received serious head injuries in Iraq when a roadside bomb hit the Humvee he was in. He and his dad, Frank Lilley, of Roswell, and Sgt. 1st Class Joe Bowser, another wounded warrior, went to Iraq with a touring troop entertainment group, sharing their stories with our soldiers. “They visited the site where Staff Sgt. Scott Lilley was wounded in Baghdad, went to the hospital in Balad where he was flown and then stopped at the hospital

Pet of the Week

in Landstuhl, Germany, while giving shows to the troops along the way. All this precipitated a one-hour documentary made by Stars for Stripes and Great American Country TV and shown on GAC TV. Lilley received a medical discharge from the Air Force in December 2010.”

In closing today’s column, I would ask you to remember all the Americans killed on this date, Sept. 11, 2011, and all the honorable men and women defending our freedom from those cowardly snakes of the desert. These demons would do well to remember WWII Japanese Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto’s statement made after Pearl Harbor, “I fear all we have done is to awaken a sleeping giant and fill him with a terrible resolve.” To the men and women killed that day and to all our fellow country persons who have responded with that “terrible resolve,” God bless.

SANTA FE—New Mexico Film Office Director Nick Maniatis announced today the independent film The Reach will begin production in Farmington and Shiprock mid-September through late October. The production will employ 160 New Mexico crew members and 60 New Mexico actors and extras. Produced by Michael Dou-

gan was a strong opponent and vocal critic of the U.S. war in Vietnam, while most of the leaders of organized labor, which had backed Gilligan in the primary, were enthusiastic supporters of President Lyndon Johnson’s war policy. Inviting the fury of the AFL-CIO hierarchy and the censure of the White House, Jack Gilligan organized, wrote and championed the peace plank, calling for a negotiated end to the Vietnam War at the tumultuous 1968 Chicago Democratic convention. Why? Because he believed the war was wrong and immoral and that the convention’s adoption of the peace plank could constitute a declaration of independence for the party’s nominee, Vice President Hubert Humphrey, from the war and from LBJ. Humphrey could then almost certainly have won the White House and spared the nation the Nixon-Agnew years.

glas (One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, Romancing the Stone, Face-Off) and Robert Mitas of Furthur Films. Directed by Jean-Baptiste Leonetti (Carre Blanc), The Reach, is written by Stephen Susco (The Grudge, Texas Chainsaw 3-D). Susco will also serve as executive producer alongside Philip Elway (Gambit, Let Me In). Starring Michael Douglas

(Behind the Candelabra, Last Vegas), Jeremy Irvine (War Horse, The Railway Man), Hanna Mangan-Lawrence (X: Night of Vengeance, Bed of Roses) and Ronny Cox (RoboCop, Total Recall), The Reach is based on the popular 1973 Edgar Award-winning young adult novel Deathwatch by Robb White.

For fighting the Democratic war policy, Jack Gilligan was punished. Major labor leaders cut off campaign funds. Badly outspent, he lost a close Senate race in November. Let me assure you from painful personal experience, losing campaigns do not build character. But losing campaigns can reveal character. What Jack Gilligan showed in risking almost certain defeat on principle was indeed character — and moral courage. As governor, he made the improving of the care and treatment of the ignored and the overlooked, the patients in Ohio’s discredited state mental hospitals, his cause. And he succeeded. But as you can understand, there is no political pay-off in such an effort. State mental hospital clients do not buy tickets, let alone tables, to campaign fund-raising dinners. They mostly do not have a car on which to put your bumper sticker or a lawn on which to plant your yard sign. To make this your cause is an act of moral courage and one more reason why I loved Jack Gilligan. © 2013 Mark Shields

U.S. beats Mexico, clinches WC berth Wednesday, September 11, 2013 Phone: 575-622-7710, ext. 304


Roswell Daily Record

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — The United States clinched its seventh straight World Cup appearance, beating Mexico 2-0 Tuesday night on second-half goals by Eddie Johnson and Landon Donovan before a raucous red-white-andblue-clad crowd that stood and chanted from start to finish. After withstanding Mexican pressure for the first 20 minutes, the U.S. settled in the match and got the breakthrough in the 49th minute when Johnson outjumped defender Diego Reyes to meet Donovan’s corner kick 8 yards out and head the ball past frozen goalkeeper Jesus Corona. With Mexican shifting to an offense-minded 3-4-3 formation, the U.S. scored in the 78th following a throw in when Mix Diskerud threaded the ball across the middle. Clint Dempsey got the slightest of touches as he slid into the goalmouth, and Donovan poked the ball in from 2 yards. The U.S. (5-2-1) moved into first place in the North and Cen-


tral American and Caribbean finals with 16 points, one ahead of Costa Rica (4-1-3), which was held to a 1-1 tie at last-place Jamaica and also clinched. “Obviously this is a huge, huge evening for all of us,” U.S. coach Jurgen Klinsmann said. “It’s a huge milestone whenever you make it to a World Cup.” The top three teams qualify, and the U.S. had to wait an hour after the final whistle to learn it was assured of a spot in the 32nation field for Brazil next June. But when Honduras (3-3-2) held on for a 2-2 tie against Panama (1-2-5) in Tegucigalpa, the Americans had grabbed a berth with two games to spare. “We’re continuing the growth of

49ers, Broncos still on top

The San Francisco 49ers gave up ground to the Denver Broncos while holding down the top spot in the AP Pro32 power rankings after the first week of the regular season. The 49ers earned seven first-place votes and 347 points in Tuesday’s poll after rallying to beat the Green Bay Packers over the weekend. The Broncos earned the other four firstplace votes and 344 points after Peyton Manning’s virtuoso seven-touchdown performance sent them past the Baltimore Ravens in a rematch of last year’s dramatic AFC playoff game. San Francisco had nine first-place votes in last week’s balloting of media that regularly cover the league, while the Broncos had two and Seattle had one. One voter was absent this week. Colin Kaepernick dazzled in the 49ers’ season opener, but it was the play of wide receiver Anquan Boldin that stood out to voters. He had 13 catches for 208 yards and a touchdown for coach Jim Harbaugh, and

surely made Ravens coach John Harbaugh rue the trade that sent him away. “I hope Jim Harbaugh sends his brother a nice Christmas gift for encouraging him to make the Anquan Boldin trade in the offseason,” wrote Alex Marvez of SiriusXM and FoxSports1. Kaepernick threw for a career high 412 yards and three touchdowns. “Kaepernick to Boldin is something we’ll be hearing about plenty this season. Already 13 times in just the first game,” said Newsday’s Bob Glauber, who also had San Francisco at No. 1. Voters didn’t forget about Manning’s record-tying seven TD tosses in the regular-season opener against Baltimore on Thursday night, though, even after a full slate of games on Sunday and a doubleheader on Monday night. “Peyton appears better than ever,

Through the first seven games of the season, the Goddard boys soccer team’s offense has been sporadic, but the Rocket defense has been reliable. Given that, Goddard coach Fernando Sosa has spent a lot of practice time working on finding the back of the net. While the Rocket offense has improved — look at its third-place finish this past weekend at the Coyote Classic Invitational — the Goddard “D” struggled on Tuesday in a 3-0 loss to visiting Ruidoso. “Like you said, the defense was it. Normally we are so strong in our defense that I am not worried about it,” Sosa said regarding the play of his back end against the Warriors. “We have been working on offense so much, I guess we forgot about defense. Then we started getting upset with each other, and when they do that, (the goals) is what happens.” At the beginning of the game, the Rockets’ Miguel Robles had a free kick that sailed inches above the crossbar. That would be the last legit scoring chance for Goddard (4-4) for nearly 20 minutes as Ruidoso dominated possession. In the 21st minute, Robles fired a shot from about 15 yards out. The shot was deflected by Warrior keeper Raul Tello and came perilously close to sneaking in under the cross bar. Instead, the ball bounced away harmlessly. Ruidoso took the lead for good in the 32nd minute when Andres Aguirre headed in a corner kick.

Coyotes fall for first time

HOBBS — Through the first nine games of the season, the Roswell boys soccer team steamrolled opponents, climbing to sixth in the MaxPreps national rankings. Unfortunately for the Coyotes, a near perfect storm of factors contributed to a 1-0 loss to the Hobbs Eagles, Tuesday. Leading scorer Fernando Sanchez was forced to sit out the game following a controversial red card against Los Lunas on Saturday and the game was played with two refs instead of the required three. “Our guys didn’t come to play tonight,” said Roswell coach James Vernon regarding his team’s first loss of the year. “No. 1, they had a two-man ref system and I don’t know what to do about it. (We let the ref situation affect us) and we can’t let it do that. We have to come and play.” The lone goal came in the 20th minute when the Eagles cashed in on a one-on-one matchup. On the flip side, Roswell (9-1) missed three of those opportunities. Vernon said that this should be a learning experience for his squad. “Maybe we take this lump and realize that we aren’t invincible,” he said. “We have to work to win and that wasn’t done tonight.” Clovis 2, NMMI 0 NMMI fell to visiting Clovis on Tuesday at Stapp Parade Field. Juan Tafich had seven saves for the Colts. The Colts fell to 1-5 with the loss.

Cowboys release S Eric Frampton from IR

IRVING, Texas (AP) — The Dallas Cowboys have released safety Eric Frampton after reaching an injury settlement with their leading tackler on special teams last year. Frampton injured a groin Aug. 11 during training camp in California and never returned to practice. He was placed on injured reserve on Sept. 4. He would be eligible to return to the Cowboys in Week 10. The 29-year-old Frampton had 21 special teams tackles and finished with a career-high 25 tackles on defense in 2012. He had the first two starts of his career in the final two games. Frampton was drafted by Oakland in 2007 but released at the end of training camp. He played for Detroit and Minnesota before signing with Dallas early last season.

Less than a minute later, Robles had another shot come inches away from paydirt, but that would be the Rockets’ last real scoring threat. The Warriors took a 2-0 lead in the 42nd minute when the Rocket defense had a breakdown. Goddard keeper Pedro Garcia chased down a loose ball in the box, but the Warriors’ Jose Roque got to the ball first. With the Rocket defense scrambling to cover for each other, Roque was able to gain possession of the ball and get a shot off that found its way through a handful of bodies and to the back of the net. Ruidoso’s final goal was actually an own goal by the Rockets. “It was very frustrating,” Sosa said regarding the manner in which Ruidoso scored its final two goals. “Some of those shots they took, I don’t know how they went in. We were just unlucky sometimes. It was just one of those games.”

Vikings last weekend. NFL spokesman Randall Liu says vice president of football operations Merton Hanks notified the Detroit defensive tackle of the fine. Suh hit Vikings center John Sullivan during an interception return, drawing a penalty that negated a touchdown by Detroit linebacker DeAndre Levy. Suh said he wasn’t going after Sullivan’s knees, adding that the two discussed the play at halftime. Detroit players said Suh apologized to the team Tuesday. The NFL fined Suh $30,000 last year for unnecessary roughness when he kicked Houston quarterback Matt Schaub in the groin area. He was suspended two games in 2011 after stomping on Green Bay’s Evan Dietrich-Smith.

In this Americaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Cup, teams will sail the AC72, a catamaran (CATuh-muh-ran). A catamaran is a boat with two parallel hulls that are identical in size. They are connected by a platform that sits above the water, allowing waves and air to pass between the two hulls. While earlier Americaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Cup boats could not compete in rough conditions with high winds and waves, the AC72 catamarans can slice right through them. The AC72s also use hydrofoils â&#x20AC;&#x201D; small wings that are lowered into the water and can lift the hulls above the water. This allows the boats to reach speeds of 50 mph or more â&#x20AC;&#x201D; sometimes more than twice the speed of the actual wind.

The Luna Rossa team from Italy uses hydrofoils to increase speed during a Challenger Series race. The Golden Gate Bridge is in the background. Eleven sailors are aboard each boat. Each person has a specific job. They work together as a team to achieve the best speed and direction.

B4 Wednesday, September 11, 2013 DEAR ABBY UNIVERSAL PRESS SYNDICATE

DEAR ABBY: My 13-year-old son, “Wiley,” was playing a game on my cellphone. I stupidly forgot to delete a short video of myself engaged in a sex act with my ex-husband, “Cliff.” Wiley didn’t confront me or mention it, but given his sudden change in behavior, I’m almost certain he saw it. The next morning I mentioned it and apologized, hoping we could get past the awkwardness, but Wiley wouldn’t admit this is what’s bothering him. He acted as if he didn’t know what I was talking about. Now he’s shutting down. He won’t talk to me. He’s off in his own world

as if I’m a stranger, where a few days before we would laugh, share and trust each other. I divorced Cliff because he and my son didn’t get along, but in the last six months we have been secretly having an affair and we ultimately want to get back together when Wiley is 18. My son doesn’t approve of him and he’s angry about it. I’m worried and embarrassed that he saw me doing what I was doing in that few seconds of video, and I don’t want to scar him or have him think differently of me. Wiley’s father has been no help, and I suspect adds fuel to our son’s anger during his weekend visitations. I tried therapy for Wiley — it didn’t help. Do you have any suggestions? MORTIFIED IN ARIZONA DEAR MORTIFIED: I’m printing your letter because, once again, it illustrates the danger of putting videos of a sexual nature on cellphones. I can think of few people of any age who don’t prefer to think of themselves as products of immaculate conception, and your


son is no exception. Because Cliff and Wiley’s relationship was so poor the three of you couldn’t coexist under one roof, discovering that you are once more intimately involved with your ex must have been traumatic and threatening to Wiley. It might reassure him to know that your seeing Cliff does not mean you will be living together anytime soon. In the meantime, I recommend that YOU talk with a therapist to help you cope with the changed relationship you now have with your son. It’s a shame that Wiley’s father has used this unfortunate incident for his own selfish purposes. Divorced couples MUST remember that they have to love their child more than they hate each other. ##### DEAR ABBY: A year and a half ago, I reconnected with “Paul.” We were in grade school together and hadn’t seen each other for many years. We have been extremely happy and want to spend our remaining years together.

Because of our ages (we’re both seniors) and separate families and incomes, we feel marriage is not what we’d like to do. But we would like to move in together. Would it be ridiculous for us to do that without being married? Will the world condemn us? Will our children understand or ostracize us? How do we handle questions about why we have chosen not to marry? IN LOVE IN LOUISIANA

Family Circus

DEAR IN LOVE: Many older couples do what you are considering because being married would negatively affect their retirement income. If your children like Paul — and his children like you — I doubt you will be ostracized. Most adult children want their parents to be happy. If you’re worried about how the community will react to your living arrangement, consider talking to a clergyperson about being “married in the eyes of God.” As to questions about why you have chosen not to marry, apart from your family, it is nobody’s business and you are not obligated to discuss it.

KING FEATURES SYNDICATE Dear Heloise: I lost your recipe for Heloise’s CHINESE BEETS. I looked for it, but it doesn’t seem to be anywhere. I read your column in The Orange County (Calif.) Register daily. Thank you for all the years of good hints. Joan R., via email


6 cups, or 3 (16 ounces each) cans, sliced or whole beets 1 cup sugar 1 cup vinegar 2 tablespoons cornstarch 24 whole cloves (less if you don’t want a strong taste) 3 tablespoons ketchup 3 tablespoons oil (optional) 1 teaspoon vanilla extract Salt to taste

Drain the beets. Set aside 1 1/2 cups of the liquid. In a medium saucepan, place the beets and reserved liquid. Then add all the remaining ingredients. Mix well and cook for 3 minutes over medium heat, or until the mixture thickens. Let cool before storing in the refrigerator. Serve as a side dish or in a salad.

Box 795001, San Antonio, TX 78279-5001. These beets can be too tangy for some people’s tastes. Adjust the recipe by using fewer cloves, and leave out the vanilla for a different flavor. Heloise ##### Dear Readers: Do you know what hominy is or how to cook with it? I recently just “rediscovered” it, and I started wondering. I know it’s corn, but ...? It is the center of the corn that is left over after the corn kernel is soaked in a solution to bleach it, then washed. Hominy can be eaten by itself or added to recipes such as soups, stews and casseroles. I sprinkle some on my salad for a nice addition. Heloise ##### Dear Heloise: Is blackstrap molasses the same as regular molasses? Louise S., via email

No, it is not! Molasses comes from the juice of sugar cane or sugar beets. The juice is boiled to remove the sugar crystals. How many times the juices are boiled determines the “type” of molasses. Light or regular molasses is made from the first boiling, while dark molasses comes after a second boiling. Blackstrap molasses is what remains after a third boiling, and it has a bitter taste. It’s used in slowcooking recipes, e.g., baked beans or barbecue. Heloise ##### Dear Heloise: Cleaning out the pulp and seeds when preparing winter squash using a spoon was difficult. I looked in my utensil drawer and chose the larger end of my melon-ball cutter. The insides of the winter squash come out with very little effort using the melon-ball cutter. Don’t turn it; simply pull it along the inside of the squash. The pulp and seeds come out easily. W.B. in Texas

5 facts about Vegas’ record-breaking Ferris wheel Roswell Daily Record

LAS VEGAS (AP) — The Las Vegas Strip is getting the world’s largest Ferris wheel, dubbed the High Roller. Workers hoisted the final 60-foot piece of the 55story outer wheel into place Tuesday. Here are five things to know about the gargantuan carnival ride: 1. BIG WHEEL At 550 feet, the High Roller is 9 feet taller than its closest competitor, the Singapore Flyer, and 100 feet taller than the London Eye. It’s a hair taller than the Bellagio hotel, though not as tall as the Wynn Las Vegas. But it won’t be looking down on the rest for

long. The 625-foot New York Wheel is expected to steal its tallest-in-the-world thunder in 2016. And a rival company is building SkyVue, a 500-foot observation wheel at the southern end of the Strip. 2. STEEL DEAL — The wheel, being built between the Flamingo and Harrah’s hotel-casino as part of the outdoor Linq project by Caesars Entertainment Corp., will carry 3.5 million pounds of steel. That’s more than the weight of 200 Hummers. 3. THAT’S NOT PEANUTS — Each cable holding the wheel in place has a break-

ing force equal to 550 tons, the weight of nearly 100 elephants. 4. MADE IN ?? — Workers have assembled parts of the wheel over the course of two years in China, Japan, France, Sweden, Italy, the Netherlands, Germany and Colorado. 5. LOTS OF WINDEX — Each of the ride’s 28 enclosed cabins will be made from four sheets of laminated glass covering 300 square feet each. And each cabin will have the capacity to carry up to 40 passengers for a revolution that will take 30 minutes to complete.

Possible new cancer drug Federal license required ACCELERATED APPROVAL: Government scientists on Tuesday recommended speedy approval for a Roche breast cancer drug that could become the first pharmaceutical product approved for use before surgery. NEW OPTION: Preliminary results submitted by Roche showed that women who received the drug Perjeta were more

likely to be cancer -free than women receiving older drug combinations. COMMITTEE OPINION: On Thursday, the FDA will ask an outside panel of cancer specialists whether Perjeta’s benefits outweigh its risks for treating earlystage breast cancer. The vote is nonblinding but factors into the FDA’s decision.

spokeswoman Brittany Chord said. It had previously reached settlements with 152 people. Two plaintiffs’ cases remain. Asked what was holding up the two remaining cases, Chord said she could not speak to the specifics of any particular case. “We are committed to resolving these matters as quickly and as fairly as possible,” she said. The money for the claims will come from shareholders, not ratepayers, Chord said. Some portion will also be covered by insurance. “It’s a huge deal,” attorney George Corey, whose firm represented about 120 of the victims, told the San Jose Mercury News. “It took a long time for PG&E lawyers to get the company to stand up to the serious facts of this case. But they finally did, and it was fair.”

can no longer do so sight-unseen. Sellers either must allow buyers to see animals in person before they purchase them or obtain a license and be subject to inspections by the Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service. The rules are targeted to dog breeders but could affect breeders of other animals too. The Agriculture Department estimates that up to 4,640 dog breeders could be affected by the rule, along with about 325 cat breeders and up to 75 rabbit breeders. Animal protection groups cheered the move. Wayne Pacelle, president of The Humane Society of the United States, said he has been working on the issue for almost two decades. While mail-order dog sales were a problem before popular use of the Internet, online sales have made the problem much worse, he said. “There are hundreds of thousands of dogs languishing in small wire cages, denied vet care and exposed to the elements that literally had no protection under federal law,” Pacelle said. “This turns that around.” Small-size breeders have lobbied against the changes, saying the rules could regulate them out of business. USDA’s Shea says the department set the minimum of four breeding females to ensure that smaller sellers would be able to continue offering puppies. “People who have generally been thought of as ‘hobby breeders’ continue to be exempt,” Shea said. Shea said the licenses will cost $750 or less and complying with the USDA regulations should only be expensive for breeders who aren’t already ensuring their animals have adequate housing and medical care. The American Kennel Club said it is dismayed by the rule, which is “overly broad and will do more damage than good,” said spokeswoman Lisa Petersen.

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Agriculture Department is cracking down on dog breeders who sell puppies over the Internet, issuing new regulations that will force them to apply for federal licenses. The rules announced Tuesday would subject dog owners who breed more than four females and sell the puppies online, by mail or over the phone to the same oversight faced by wholesale animal breeders. Many breeders who run their businesses online have skirted federal oversight by classifying themselves as retail pet stores, which are exempt from licensing requirements. Commercial pet stores aren’t required to have licenses because buyers can see the animals before they buy them and decide whether they appear healthy and cared for. But that’s not the case when buying over the Internet. The idea behind the new rules, says USDA’s Kevin Shea, is that either government inspectors or buyers see the animals with their own eyes before they are sold. Shea, administrator of the USDA’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service, says the agency is responding to a 2010 USDA inspector general’s report that uncovered grisly conditions at so-called “puppy mills” around the country. The report recommended that the department tighten the animal welfare laws — written more than four decades ago, long before the advent of the Internet — to cut down on unscrupulous breeders. In addition to finding dirty, bug-infested conditions at many breeding facilities, inspectors cited numerous reports of buyers who received animals who were sick or dying. The new rules, first proposed last year, would ensure that most people who sell pets over the Internet, by phone or mail order

Mexico (1-2-5) dropped into fifth on goal difference and seems likely at best headed to a playoff against Oceania champion New Zealand. U.S. players, many carrying large American flags on sticks, celebrated their win with a lap


around the field, saluting the crowd the whole way. Then they went to the locker room to wait out the Honduras game. About 1,000 fans stuck around to watch on the videoboard, chanting for Honduras. Following wins over Mexico in qualifiers by identical 2-0 scores at Columbus Crew Stadium in 2001, 2005 and 2009, the U.S. Soccer Federation picked the same venue for this year’s match. The capacity crowd of 24,584 taunted the Mexicans with chants of “Dos a cero!” and “You’re not going to Brazil!” Fans were so loud during “The

The Raiders climbed from the cellar to No. 30 after a 21-17 loss to Indianapolis.

STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) — Boosters and assistant coaches at Oklahoma State handed out tens of thousands of dollars to players for at least a decade as the football program grew into a national power under coaches Les Miles and then Mike Gundy, according to a Sports Illustrated article released Tuesday. The article, which quoted several former players by name, said some players received $2,000 to $10,000 annually, with a few stars receiving $25,000 or more. Eight players told SI they received cash, while 29 others were named by teammates as taking money. The transgressions cited stretched from 2001 until at least 2011, the magazine said. Oklahoma State said it has notified the NCAA about the report and launched its own investigation. Sports Illustrated said its five-part series included interviews with more than 60 former players who played for Oklahoma State from 2001-10. Among the allegations of misconduct and potential NCAA violations are: — An Oklahoma State assistant coach, Joe DeForest, paid cash bonuses to players of up to $500 for performance.

smoke bomb. Donovan’s goal, increasing his national team record to 57, set off a nonstop singalong for the closing minutes of the match. Mexico dominated the first 20 minutes of the opening half and the last five, forcing goalkeeper T im Howard to make several sprawling saves. The first came seven minutes in, when American left back DaMarcus Beasley scuf fed a clearance and nearly put the ball in his own goal. Howard made a diving parry on Christian Gimenez in the 19th, and then two minutes later

pushed Gimenez’s free kick over the crossbar. Howard was forced into another diving save on Giovani Dos Santos in the 44th, and then dived to knock a header over the line in injury time after Bedoya pulled down Dos Santos with a sliding tackle, earning a yellow card. The first good U.S. chance was when Donovan’s free kick was knocked down by Omar Gonzalez in the 14th, and Jermaine Jones volleyed over the crossbar. Eddie Johnson’s header of f Donovan’s corner kick was saved by Corona in the 32nd.

and the revamped defense is better than expected,” said Charean Williams of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, who had the Broncos ranked No. 1. Rick Gosselin of the Dallas Morning News pointed out that “Peyton Manning is on a pace to pass for 112 touchdowns,” while Pat Kirwan of SiriusXM and CBS Sports decided to overlook the Broncos’ suspect running game after Week 1. “So they didn’t run the ball very well last week,” Kirwin wrote. “Who cares when Manning throws seven touchdown passes?” Seattle dropped from a tie for second into third place after struggling to a 12-7 win over Carolina. Houston jumped to fourth after erasing a 21-point deficit to beat San Diego 31-28 on Monday night, while New England remained fifth after squeaking past Buffalo. The Saints were among the biggest movers, jumping from 12th into a tie for sixth with the Packers. The Falcons, Colts and Bears round out the top 10. “Big jump for win over Falcons in Sean Payton’s return,” ESPN’s Jeff Legwold said of the Saints, “but will have to show a little more on defense moving forward.” Another big mover was Philadelphia, which piled up points in a hurry in coach Chip Kelly’s debut Monday night. The Eagles took a 26-point lead in the third quarter against Washington on Monday night, and then held on for a 33-27 win over the defending NFC East champs. The Eagles climbed from 26th into a tie with Detroit for 12th, one spot behind Chicago.

— Boosters and assistant coaches funneled money to players and provided sham jobs for which players were paid. — Tutors and school personnel completed school work for players and professors gave passing grades for little or no work. — The program’s drug policy was selectively enforced, allowing some players to go unpunished for repeated positive tests. — Some members of a hostess program used by the football coaching staff had sex with recruits. NCAA rules bar boosters from providing cash or other benefits based on athletic performance. NCAA spokeswoman Emily Potter declined comment when asked about Oklahoma State, citing the organization’s longstanding policy. SI reported that eight former Cowboys told the magazine they had received cash payments and 29 others were named by teammates as having also taken money. Former player Calvin Mickens said he was handed cash in the locker room by a stranger after Oklahoma State’s 2005 seasonopening victory, a game in which he played well. “I was like, Wow, this is the life!” Mickens told SI. “I’m 18, playing football and

I just got $200.” He said he got money at other times, including $800 later that season after the game at Texas A&M, and saw teammates getting similar handouts. Former defensive tackle Brad Girtman said he saw some star players get “monster payments,” while he once received $500 from a member of the football staff. Girtman said the rates were told to him by Joe DeForest, who ran special teams and the secondary under Miles and then was an associate head coach under Gundy, the current head coach, from 2005-11. Girtman also said he recalled DeForest handing him a debit card in 2003 with $5,000 on it and that it was periodically refilled. DeForest and assistant Larry Porter, the running backs coach from 2002-04, also made payments directly to players, SI reported. DeForest is now an assistant at West Virginia, which has launched an internal review. Miles has said he didn’t know of any improprieties while he was the Oklahoma State coach. “I can tell you this: We have always done things right,” he said after LSU’s game Saturday night in Baton Rouge, La.
