Roswell Daily Record THE VOICE OF THE PECOS VALLEY
Gunman told police he was hearing voices Vol. 122, No. 224 75¢ Daily / $1.25 Sunday
WASHINGTON (AP) — A month before he went on the rampage that left 13 dead, Washington Navy Yard gunman Aaron Alexis complained to police in Rhode Island that people were talking to him through the walls and ceilings of his hotel rooms and sending microwave vibrations into his body to deprive him of sleep.
The account, contained in an Aug. 7 report from Newport, R.I., police, adds to the picture that has emerged of an agitated and
erratic figure whose behavior and mental state had repeatedly come to authorities’ attention but didn’t seem to affect his security clearance. Alexis, a 34-year -old infor mation technology employee at a defenserelated computer company, used a valid pass Monday to get into the Navy Yard and killed 12 people before he was slain by police in a shootout that lasted more than a half-hour. A day after the assault, the motive was still a mys-

Alexis, a for mer Navy reservist, had been undergoing mental health treatment from Veterans Affairs since August but was not stripped of his security clearance, according to the law enforcement officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity because the criminal investigation was

A coalition of Roswell-area veterans and city officials are working to start development on a 5-acre section at South Park Cemetery for an official veterans cemetery in the next 60-90 days. The future site is planned near this established area, beyond where other veterans, such as Iraq veteran Sgt. Christopher Sanders, are buried. Sanders, a former student of the New Mexico Military Institute, died from wounds suffered during combat.

A coalition of Roswellarea veterans, with the backing of city officials, are pushing forward with
plans to break ground on a local, official veterans cemetery within the next two to three months. The group hopes to start burying on at least 5 acres at an undeveloped area at South Park Cemetery, said
coalition member Ron McKay. Plans will continue to develop at a meeting set for later this month. “We’ll start at one end with an acre and move forward,” McKay. “That way, we can see how the fund-

Attention in Colo. turns to damage tallies
LYONS, Colo. (AP) — The emergency airlifts of flood victims waned Tuesday, leaving rescue crews to systematically search the nooks and crannies of the northern Colorado foothills and transportation officials to gauge what it will take to rebuild the wasted landscape. More than 3,000 people have been evacuated by air and ground since last week’s devastating floods, but calls for those emergency rescues are now dwindling, federal and state emergency officials said.
Military rescue crews have met to identify new areas to check and places to cover again with hundreds of people still considered missing. “They’ve kind of transitioned from that initial response to going into more of a grid search,” Colorado National Guard Lt. Skye Robinson said. In one of those searches Tuesday, Sgt. 1st Class Keith Bart and Staff Sgt. Jose Pantoja leaned out the window of a Blackhawk, giving the thumbs-up sign to people they spotted on
the ground while flying outside of hard-hit Jamestown. Most waved back and continued shoveling debris. But then Bart spotted two women waving red scarves, and the helicopter descended. Pantoja attached his harness to the helicopter’s winch and was lowered to the ground. He clipped the women in, and they laughed as they were hoisted into the Blackhawk. After dropping of f the women at the Boulder airport, the Blackhawk was
DAMASCUS, Syria (AP) — Russia insisted Tuesday that a U.N. Security Council resolution gover ning Syria’s handling of its chemical weapons not allow the use of force, but it suggested that could change if Damascus reneges on the deal to give up its stockpile. The main Syrian opposition coalition, meanwhile, urged the inter national community to take swift action against the regime of President Bashar Assad in response to a U.N. finding
that the nerve agent sarin was used in a deadly attack near the capital last month. Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said his country “spoke clearly” about rejecting the use of force when the chemical weapons agreement was worked out Saturday in Geneva between Washington and Moscow. The plan calls for an inventory of Syria’s chemical weapons within a week, with all components of the program out of the country or destroyed by mid-2014.
But if signs emerge that Syria is not fulfilling the agreement or there are reports of further chemical weapons use, “then the Security Council will examine the situation,” Lavrov said, suggesting the issue could be reconsidered. U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said a resolution on the U.S.-Russia deal must be enforceable, telling reporters that the “most ef fective” way is under Chapter 7 of the U.N. Charter. That deals with threats to inter na-

Airlift canceled for flood isolated town
ALBUQUERQUE (AP) — An emergency ground delivery of food, water and other supplies was planned Tuesday for a tiny western New Mexico community that remained isolated after weekend flooding damaged the only paved road leading to it. New Mexico Department of Homeland Security spokesman Estevan Lujan said state authorities and National Guard the planned to deliver readymade meals and other supplies by foot to residents of the privately run ghost town of Mogollon in the Gila National Forest. Lujan said the original planned airlift was canceled after officials determined there was not enough space to land a helicopter. Officials said a creek paralleling the one paved road into town — state Route 159 — surged from its banks after heavy rains and made the road inaccessible from a mile outside the community. A spokesman for Gov. Susana Martinez said the governor was scheduled to tour part of the Gila later Tuesday and attempt to visit Mogollon. “She will visit as close to
Mogollon as she can, likely the spot on the road that is washed out,” spokesman Enrique C. Knell said. Roughly 15 residents live year-round in Mogollon, a former mining town nestled in the mountains. Meanwhile, forecasters said flash flooding was less likely in much of northern and central New Mexico. But continued rain was keeping that threat alive in some areas, particularly on the eastern plains south of Interstate 40. “Comparing this week with last week, we’re definitely going to be quieting down,” said Christopher Luckett, a National Weather Service meteorologist in Albuquerque. Authorities planned to use a bulldozer to scrape out a makeshift road for four-wheel-drive vehicles. Tafoya said there was no estimate on when the work would be completed. Martinez approved the emergency delivery to Mogollon. Mogollon wasn’t the only town hit hard with flooding in the Gila National Forest, an area devastated by last year’s Whitewater -Baldy Fire.

Report: DHS must better track excessive force The report’s biggest revelation may have been the Department of Homeland Security’s Office of Inspector General could not come up with a tally of excessive force allegations against Border Patrol agents and customs officers because the agency’s databases do not allow them to be categorized that way. The report was requested last year by 16 members of Congress concer ned with the case of 42-year -old Anastasio Hernandez, who died after being shocked several times with a stun gun at San Diego’s San Ysidro border crossing in May 2010. The letter lawmakers sent requesting the review said, “we are also
Union sues over return of workers to building
SANTA FE (AP) — A public employees union has filed a lawsuit to stop the Public Education Department from returning employees to the basement of a gover nment office building in Santa Fe that’s undergone remediation for mold and asbestos. A local chapter of the Communications Workers of America brought the lawsuit Tuesday in state District Court in Santa Fe, saying the department hasn’t adequately addressed health hazards in the building. Department spokesman Larry Behrens has said about 20 workers will be relocated to the building’s basement. State officials contend that testing has shown no potential health risks. The union wants testing for hazardous vapors that could seep into the building from soil and groundwater contamination from leaking underground gasoline storage tanks in the area and chemicals from other former businesses.

concerned that this incident is simply part of a larger cultural problem at the Department.” The Justice Department’s investigation into his death —one of at least 19 deaths since 2010 that the American Civil Liberties Union attributes to U.S. Customs and Border Protection — continues. Two of the lawmakers who requested the review said Tuesday the report did not go far enough. U.S. Rep. Raul Grijalva, D-Ariz., called the incomplete records of allegations “deeply disturbing” and said he planned to pursue redacted portions. “We expected much more content. We expected a deeper look into it,” he said. U.S. Sen. Robert Menendez, D-N.J., said in an email that he welcomed the report’s recommendations, “but Border Patrol needs to do more to curb excessive use of force that has resulted in unnecessary deaths.” The ACLU similarly called the report a good first step, but said more

No other infor mation was immediately released Tuesday. Last year, the first case of flu in the state was reported in November. Health officials say it’s dif ficult to predict how severe this flu season. They recommend everyone six months of age and older should get a flu vaccine each flu season.

was expected. CBP also has faced fierce criticism for policies that allow agents to respond to rock throwers with deadly force, a response CBP says is justified by the danger. Eight people have been killed by Border Patrol agents in rock throwing incidents since 2010, according to the ACLU. And the report found that of 185 rock assaults in fiscal 2012, agents responded with firearms 12 percent of the time. Shawn Moran, vice president of the National Border Patrol Council, a union representing agents, said they are satisfied with the agency’s use-of-force training. “We feel that the training is top notch for use of force and our agents use it reluctantly,” Moran said. CBP began its own internal review of deadly force incidents in November, in addition to an independent review contracted to the Police Executive Research Forum. Specific references to the findings

of both were redacted from Tuesday’s report, which said recommendations were under consideration by the acting CBP commissioner. The inspectors did credit the agency for beginning field audits last year to evaluate use-of-force training outside of the
academy. But the report said follow-up needs to be formalized and the staff expanded.
It noted that one such audit revealed that “many agents and officers do not understand use of force and the extent to which they may or may not use force.” The recommenda-
tions that followed were redacted, but CBP said it was an isolated finding that was immediately addressed.
Some critics have blamed a rapid increase in Border Patrol agent staffing for deterioration in the quality of recruits and their training.
Immigrants prepare for reform
SANTA ANA, Calif. (AP) — Immigration refor m is stalled in Congress but that’s not stopping immigrants from contacting lawyers, filling out paperwork and making other preparations in hopes of getting a head start should laws change.
That’s got some advocates concerned that immigrants, who have been duped before by unscrupulous attorneys and others, could be snookered again. California lawmakers last week passed a bill to ban the practice of charging fees for services related to immigration reform before Congress passes an overhaul. Immigrant supporters are warning people to be wary of anyone — lawyers, immigration consultants or “notarios” — who offers to help fill out paperwork for a still-non-existent legalization program. Yet many are also urging immigrants to make sure their personal documents are in order now, saying there could be long lines at consular
offices for passports and other paperwork. “If you start planning for it the day it passes, you are probably going to be too late,” said Daniel Sharp, legal director at the Central American Resource Center in Los Angeles. Immigration is one of President Barack Obama’s top priorities for his second ter m, but a refor m bill faces an uncertain future in Congress. With an estimated 11 million immigrants in the country illegally, a broad overhaul could mean millions of people would be seeking legal services and consular documents and filing paperwork with the U.S. government. Immigrants, especially those who are newcomers and speak little English, have been conned in the past, most infamously by so-called “notarios,” who try to earn their trust with a term that carries hefty legal weight in many Latin American countries. Such scams not only sap immigrants of their hard-earned
cash but could even wind up getting them deported. To steer immigrants clear of fraud, the Mexican government has started a free hotline to provide information about the immigration debate. And in Los Angeles, officials said they are investigating websites that claim to help immigrants get their legal papers even though no legislation has passed. The Califor nia bill, if signed into law by Gov. Jerry Brown, would also crack down on those billing themselves as “notarios.” “Everybody wants to be first in line but there’s no line to get in,” said the bill’s author, Assemblywoman Lorena Gonzalez, D-San Diego. The State Bar pushed hard for the legislation, over the cries of immigration attorneys, fearing the rampant fraud that has long been a problem in immigration services could bankrupt a fund created to compensate clients duped by crooked lawyers. Should an immigration
bill pass, advocates say, immigrants may only have a year to submit an application. Some advocates say it’s too soon to see a lawyer, and certainly too early to shell out large sums of money to get ready for immigration reform.
Immigrants can better spend their time obtaining their children’s school records and collecting documents to prove their residence like rental agreements and car loans, said Jorge-Mario Cabrera, a spokesman for the Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights of Los Angeles.
Lawyers say they can help now by running background checks and potentially find that immigrants are eligible for other benefits, which has occurred with young people trying to stay in the U.S. legally under an Obama administration program, said Reed T rautz, director of the American Immigration Lawyers Association’s practice and professionalism center.

tion. A fence was installed in anticipation of the new site. South Park Cemetery was first established in the 1880s. Gravesites on the grounds hold the remains of veterans from the Civil War, Spanish American War, World War I, World War II, Vietnam, Korea, Iraq and Afghanistan. The 210-acre grounds were first set aside as a territorial land grant. Since then, 80 acres have been developed. Twenty more acres are planned for use. He hoped recent developments and new motivation to build a permanent site for veterans in Roswell would continue to escalate. “I think we can keep it going,” Eldridge said. “We just need to get the public more involved. We need to see if the public does or does not want it. Money is always a problem. We need donations.” McKay said the process has been a struggle, but plans are moving along. “This is the best thing that’s happened to us. We’re getting it done,” McKay said. “We want to start putting people in, in the next 60 to 90 days. That’s how hard we’re working on things.” Jurney said the timing depends on how quickly plans will come together. “If we can come to a design that meets the standards of a national cemetery, so the city can take on maintenance, that’s the best case for the city,” Jurney said. “There are still some very pivotal calls and points that need to come together. It’s going to happen.”

cemeteries for the state’s rural-area veterans. New Mexico currently only has three federal veterans cemeteries, located in Santa Fe, Ft. Bayard and Ft. Bliss. Martinez and Cabinet Secretary Timothy Hale met with Roswell veterans and leaders at a town hall Sept. 3 to discuss the initiative. The state Department of Veterans Services expects to identify up to 10, 3- to 5-acre sites. The department would manage the new cemeteries, but the decision about where to locate the cemeteries would not be official for up to two years. But the local group has decided to move forward with its established plans, in hopes of later recouping costs through the federal program. “We want to at least start with part of it,” McKay said. Last week, Mayor Del Jurney, McKay, Bert Eldridge and others invited Santa Fe National Cemetery Director Cliff Shields to Roswell to gather information about how to operate and build the site to federal specifications. Shields discussed details, including vault sizes, headstone details, crematorium standards, water-related concerns, engineering standards and ceremony practices. A separate entrance was discussed.

The suspects have already been charged with three burglaries and one larceny, the latter where items were removed from the back of a pickup truck. According to Detective Ricky Romero, the suspects have now have been connected with another 11 burglaries. A total of 15 people arrived at the police department in the first hour of the viewing. “So far, I have eight bags full of things where we had victims’ names. We have between 200 and 300 items,” Romero said. He added that each burglary occurred with unsecured vehicles, where the doors had been left unlocked. He said the sub-

I find it amazing that he would do something that would put himself in harm’s way,” said neighbor Mike Lennard. “But you just never know under these circumstances.” State officials reported six flood-related deaths, plus two women missing and presumed dead. The number was expected to increase. It could take weeks or even months to search through flooded areas looking for people who died. With the airlifts tapering, state and local transportation officials are tallying the washed-out roads, collapsed bridges and twisted railroad lines. The rebuilding effort will cost hundreds of millions of dollars and take months, if not years. Initial assessments have begun trickling in, but many areas remain inaccessible and the continuing emergency prevents a thorough understanding of the devastation’s scope. “The numbers are going to change tomorrow as we

Lottery players could see more giant jackpots Bob Knowles buys a Powerball ticket, Tuesday, in Des Moines, Iowa.
DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — If it seems that giant lottery jackpots have people lining up at convenience stores more frequently, just wait: More big payouts could be coming. Most attention has been on Powerball jackpots since the game’s rules were changed in early 2012 to boost payoffs. For Wednesday’s drawing, Powerball’s estimated $400 million jackpot will be the nation’s fifth-largest ever, though its jackpot hit $590 million earlier this year. Now organizers of the country’s other big lottery, Mega Millions, are planning changes of their own. Although Mega Millions still holds the record for the largest jackpot in U.S. history — a $656 million prize in March 2012 — organizers are hoping to more regularly see huge jackpots by lessening the odds of winning big while upping a player’s shot at smaller but still hefty prizes. Mega Millions doesn’t plan to change its $1 ticket price, but an extra $1 option already in the game will be expanded to allow players to increase their secondary prize total to between $1 million and $5 million, a major increase from $250,000. Game changes also include boosting the starting jackpot from $12 million to $15 million, and allowing the jackpot to grow by at least $5 million between drawings when no top winner is selected. It’s those jackpots, not the name on the game, that ultimately draw in 45year-old Trent Shenefield. “Depends on what’s up the highest,” the electrician said Tuesday while at a QuickTrip convenience store in suburban Kansas City. “I guess everyone wants to win the big one.” But fellow lottery player Bob Knowles, a school bus driver in Iowa, said the changes didn’t really matter. The 62year-old said he purchases tickets for both games several times a week and would be happy with any jackpot.

“That’s nice, but I don’t care. I can get by with $10 million. I can get by with $3 million,” he said after buying Powerball tickets at a grocery store in Des Moines. “I just play along with the Mega and Powerball. What it starts off with would be pretty comfortable for me to win.” The changes take effect for the Oct. 22 drawing and were based on extensive consumer research, said Paula Otto, executive director for the Virginia Lottery and lead director for Mega Millions. She said officials decided not to increase ticket prices, but acknowledged Powerball’s success after it increased its ticket prizes from $1 to $2. “Certainly we were looking at the fact that changes that Powerball made, primarily by increasing the price point, it definitely favorably impacted the jackpot,” Otto said. “It’s doing what it’s supposed to do, which is helping Powerball have bigger jackpots on a pretty consistent basis.” She noted that both games are now sold side by side, as part of a 2010 licensing agreement, in 43 states, plus the District of Columbia and the U.S. Virgin Islands. “It’s great to have both games available to players and to have drawings four nights a week. I think that the two games complement each other,” Otto said. The Iowa-based Multi-State Lottery Association is operated by 33 state lotteries that help oversee Powerball. Mega Millions has no central office and is run by individual state lotteries that handle their own accounting matters. “I applaud them for looking at changes,” said Iowa Lottery CEO Terry Rich. “You need to revise, you need to refresh. Any good, big company knows that you need to revitalize your product.” The next Powerball drawing is scheduled for today at 8:59 p.m. MDT.

Expecting Syria to live up to an agreement between Secretary of State John Kerry and Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov for the cataloging, inspection, removal and eventual destruction or sequester of chemical weapons is a subtle seduction. Why would a dictator like Bashar al-Assad relinquish his most potent weapon in the midst of a civil war? President Obama and his sycophants claim it was the threat of military action against Syria that focused Assad’s mind. That hardly seems credible after Kerry’s promise that any U.S. missile strike would be “unbelievably small.” Tyrants have a poor record of living up to agreements. One hates to resurrect Adolf Hitler, but the Munich Agreement of 1938 serves as one of many examples. The agreement gave Nazi Germany the Sudetenland region of Czechoslovakia, as long as Hitler agreed not to attempt to annex any other
that could take that power away. Assad has been called a “war criminal.” He fits the definition, having reportedly slaughtered more than 100,000 Syrians, allegedly including more than 1,400 with chemical weapons. Millions more have fled the country. Assad has no future outside Syria, other than exile, a jail cell or the gallows. It is conceivable Assad might move some of his chemical weapons to hiding places in other countries, or within Syria. Could the United States through satellite technology and other means discover such subterfuge, as it did when Soviet missiles were detected entering Cuba 50 years ago? Perhaps, but remember that Iraq’s Saddam Hussein used chemical weapons against his Kurdish population. After the first Gulf War in 1991, when Iraqi forces were evicted from Kuwait, Saddam put on a public display in which at least some of his chemical weapons

land. Hitler broke the pact in 1939 when he invaded Poland. Also in 1939, Germany and the Soviet Union signed a nonaggression treaty known as the MolotovRibbentrop Pact, ensuring that the Soviet Union would stay out of the European war. That lasted until 1941 when Hitler invaded Russia. At the Yalta Conference in February 1945, Soviet General Secretary Joseph Stalin promised free elections in Poland, but soon broke that promise, leading to the Cold War.

arsenal was destroyed. In 2003, when President George W. Bush ordered an invasion of Iraq on the pretext that Saddam had weapons of mass destruction and was attempting to acquire more, none were found. Do we really believe Hussein destroyed them all? According to a report in the Lebanese daily Al-Mustaqbal, reprinted in Sunday’s Jerusalem Post, Syria moved “20 trucks worth of equipment and material used for the manufacturing of chemical weapons into neighboring Iraq.” If true, that would have been the day after the agreement between the U.S. and Russia was announced. The Iraqi government denies it is assisting Syria in hiding chemical weapons. Who can be believed in the murky Middle East? “Trust, but verify” was the slogan used by the Reagan administration when it came to promises made by the Soviet Union. That
mantra should be updated in any dealings with Assad, as well as Iran: “Don’t trust and verify.” The Obama administration is attempting to sell this deal with Russia as if it were on a par with the surrender documents ending World War II. As evil as those regimes were, the cruel dictators in the Middle East are at least their equals. That is why they can’t be trusted to live up to any promise not in their own interest. Unless, of course, they are forced to do so through more international pressure than they are currently receiving and with a credible military option that is something larger than “unbelievably small.” (Write to Cal Thomas at: Tribune Media Services, 2225 Kenmore Ave., Suite 114, Buffalo, N.Y. 14207.

Arresting free speech
Government officials who are so concerned about a Florida preacher’s publicity stunts inciting riots overseas should be more focused on not allowing themselves to be goaded into violating his constitutional rights at home. The Rev. Terry Jones, pastor of the evangelical Christian Dove World Outreach Center, and his associate pastor were arrested last week by local sheriff’s deputies as they were on their way to a city park to burn 2,998 copies of the Quran — one for each victim killed in the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. The two men were charged with unlawful conveyance of fuel as they traveled in a pickup truck towing a barbecuestyle grill filled with Qurans soaked in kerosene. Jones first drew worldwide attention in 2010 when he announced he would burn a copy of the Muslim holy book on the anniversary of 9/11. Then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and U.S. military officers implored him not to do it, arguing that the act could inflame the Muslim world and endanger American servicemen and women stationed abroad. Jones eventually called it off, although he has burned Qurans other times, which sparked violent protests in the Middle East and Afghanistan. Recently he said he would burn 2,998 Qurans on 9/11, which once again drew a protest from Army Gen. Lloyd Austin III, commander of U.S. Central Command at Tampa’s MacDill Air Force Base, who said the act would endanger troops. It also apparently gained the attention of local law enforcement, who intercepted him before he could get to the park. County Sheriff Grady Judd said deputies saw Jones at a McDonald’s and watched as he doused the books with kerosene on his way to the park. The sheriff said dumping kerosene onto the books presented a hazardous situation. “He was potentially driving a bomb around if he had gotten into a crash,” Judd said at a press conference Wednesday night. Jones has a First Amendment right to burn Qurans. He doesn’t have a right to violate other laws to do it. However, the government also cannot single him out for enforcement of said laws based solely on who he is and his message. Did the sheriff’s deputies just happen to spot Jones dousing Qurans with kerosene in the back of his truck? Or were they following him around? If so, why? He wasn’t plotting a crime, but a public protest. Is it customary for police to intervene in such situations? How many other people have been charged with “unlawful conveyance of fuel”? (Perhaps if they announced beforehand they would be towing fuel-soaked material they might be.) Jones and his followers are the Rev. Fred Phelps/Westboro Baptist Church of antiMuslim sentiment, clowns who do provocative things to draw publicity. They are best ignored, denying them what they crave — attention. However, like the Westboro group, as offensive as their antics may be they have a First Amendment right to express them. They cannot be silenced because someone threatens to riot in response — that amounts to a “heckler’s veto” of free speech. Government should not be using other means to shut Jones up, lest it elevate him from local kook to First Amendment martyr.
Guest Editorial The Panama City News Herald
The state of education in New Mexico Through the decades there have been educational reforms that have come and gone such as the “New Math,” No Child Left Behind (NCLB) and the report “A Nation at Risk.” During these times there have been education gurus like Madelyn Hunter and Dr. Robert Marzano who advocated for refor m and improved delivery of curriculum. If New Mexico ranks among the lowest in the nation in the quality of education, exactly what will it take to provide our kids with a world class education? NCLB brought testing and with testing the districts
DEAR DOCTOR K: I have hypertension. Should I be monitoring my blood pressure at home? DEAR READER: You bet. It’s easy and inexpensive, and provides you and your doctor the information you need to protect your health. About one in three adults in the United States has high blood pressure, or hypertension. And about half of those with high blood pressure don’t have it under control. Hypertension increases the risk for heart disease and stroke. In my opinion, hypertension may be the most important public health problem in the United States, as it affects so many people. Recognizing and treating it brings enormous health
began to analyze results and determine areas of strength and opportunities for improvement. Although many school districts paid no attention to date the Roswell schools have been looking at and analyzing student test data for years. There were many who in the early years of NCLB felt that they were doing an exceptional job because they were “making AYP” — Adequate Yearly Progress. What they did not factor into the equation was the bar for making AYP was rising every year. In the early years of NCLB and AYP, almost all schools could say that they made AYP! As the

benefits. You always have a blood pressure, every minute of the night and day, and it can change a lot from one moment to the next. What matters most to your health is where your blood pressure is on average. Before we had home blood pressure monitoring machines, the way a doctor determined if your blood pres-
percentage of proficiency went up, it became almost impossible to reach the bar. In the original plan of NCLB it was expected that 100 percent of the students in the United States be “Proficient or Advanced” by 2014. In 2012, New Mexico was granted a waiver of the NCLB rules and now has the A-F system. The waiver requires all students score proficient on the New Mexico SBA (Standards Based Assessment). This means that the students who score at the proficient level on the 11th grade assessment will most likely graduate. However, in addition
students must show competence in other than tested areas by scoring as proficient on the End of Course Exam (EOC). Sounds complicated! It is complicated! Tracking the students who passed the tests, the EOC exams, offering tutoring and interventions tailored to meet an individual student’s needs is a challenge to all school administrators. The concern is graduation. What if the SBA or an EOC is not mastered, what happens? The graduation rates at GHS, RHS and UHS were 66 per-
sure was controlled was to have you make a trip to his or her office. If you think about it, that’s pretty silly. The doctor is supposed to estimate what your average blood pressure is all day and all night based on one visit to the doctor’s office every several months. And since many people get nervous when they visit the doctor — yes, even my patients — the reading in the office may not be representative. Home blood pressure machines make it easy to get a much better estimate of what your average blood pressure really is. The latest evidence for the benefits of home blood pressure monitoring comes from
researchers who studied 450 people with hypertension. About half were given home blood pressure monitors that electronically sent readings to a secure website. The volunteers were asked to send six readings each week. Pharmacists analyzed that information and adjusted medications if needed or offered advice on lifestyle changes to lower blood pressure. The other volunteers received usual care from their primary care providers. At every step of the way, people in the home monitoring group had more success getting their blood pressure under control.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
Gay marriage: politics v. Bible
Dear Editor, About same sex marriage!!! There is much talk and debate going on about same sex marriage and our clerks granting marriage license to same sex couples, why don’t we see what our creator God had to say about this abomination. There are many warnings in scriptures relating to this, even in the first book of the Bible; the Book of Genesis there are dire warnings about this, Genesis chapter 19 gives a message to Lot the nephew of Abraham about the city of Sodom and Gomorrah and their wickedness. Two Angels came to Lot to warn him to get out of the city of Sodom, because God was fixing to destroy the city because of its wicked behavior. The men and boys of Sodom had seen more strangers (angels disguised as men) come to Lot’s house. They wanted some fresh encounters of strange (homosexual) sex. They demanded that Lot bring the men out to them. Lot refused and begged the homosexual boys and men of the city not to do anything to these strangers. He even went so far as to offer his virgin daughters in the place of these angels but wicked inhabitants demanded to have the men. They were so benighted that they didn’t recognize the holiness of these men (angels). Finally with much urging, Lot his wife and two daughters were persuaded to leave all their possessions behind and get out of the city before God destroyed it. As they left they were warned not to look back. Lots wife did not heed the angel’s warnings and looked back and she was turned into a pillar of salt. Genesis 19 and many other places in the Bible warn against the abomination of homosexual behavior. If God destroyed wicked Sodom and Gomorrah because of this abomination, how does America think she can survive God’s judgment? Also the book of Romans in the New Testament gives additional war nings. Romans chapter one beginning with verse 18 warns us about pushing the truth away from us about this great sin! It declares that when people refuse to obey God that “God gives them over to a reprobate mind”. Claiming to be wise in their minds they became “fools” verse 24 states that God gave them up to their shameful desires. He states that even women turned against the natural way to have sex with men and instead decided to have sex each other. And the men, instead of having normal sexual relations with their wives, burned with lust for each other.

cent, 62 percent and 37 percent respectively last year. If the rules of the NCLB waiver are indeed followed our graduation rate, and the graduation rate of high schools in the state, will drop dramatically. Buying a graduation gown and inviting family to graduation will not guarantee that the student has attained the performance level that has been set out for them to graduate. Do you have questions yet? Probably so. Talk to your student, ask about the results of the latest SBA and EOCs, make an appointment with the school administrator or counselor, attend parent meetings and open houses. Education has changed and we, as parents, must be aware of the new graduation requirements. It is no longer the case that just because a student attends school, they will graduate. Find out what you can do to help your child to make their high school years positive. One of my initiatives this year is to
Men did shameful things with other men and as a result, suffered within themselves the penalty. How does so-called enlightened America think they can escape the wrath of almighty God? America wake up before it is too late!! Sodom and Gomorrah had been blessed beyond measure. They were prosperous and had all they could want. But they indulged in shameful sin and sinfulness could not be overlooked by God. These warnings are written in the Bible, America wake up, the hour is late!! Some more scriptures that pertain to this is Deuteronomy 29:23; Isaiah13:19; Luke 1:6 etc. By the way: Are we more interested in what Obama and the secular government says than what God says. There are many places in the Bible that condemn homosexuality. Read what happened to Sodom and Gomorrah in Gen 19 and then turn to Romans chapter one verses 31-46 and see what God says!
Thanks, Semi-retired Pastor Gail Whitehead Roswell
Benefiting from tragedy
Dear Editor: I was appalled and shocked after reading the article in your August 6th edition entitled “Prison Riot Site May Become Museum.” I think that it’s shameful that New Mexico state officials are even considering making a tourist attraction out of such a tragic riot in 1980, which resulted in large part to the overcrowded conditions in the prison, a fault of the Department of Corrections of New Mexico. Besides the 33 men who were killed, there were over 100 others hurt in the incident. Many of the family members are still alive, and I believe a decision to enact something such as a museum would be very hurtful to them. I do think that the building could be put to very good use — rehabilitation sessions, 12- step meetings, and job training which the men will need when they are released from their incarceration. I believe “dark tourism” is a very negative outlook for the Department of Corrections to attain financial gain.
Sincerely, Margaret LaMure Alto
increase attendance rates of all students. Studies have shown that missing more than 10 days in a school year reduces the chance that a student will score proficient in state testing. There are state statutes that require students between the ages of 5 and 18 to attend school regularly. This year if a student has 10 days of unexcused absences the district will be referring those students to court for enforcement of the mandatory attendance statute. Last week the courtroom was full of students who had already missed five days unexcused. The students and parents heard Judge Romero explain the importance of education and the penalty for non-attendance. The courts may impose a penalty of a $100 fine and 50 hours of community service on the parent if the student does not attend. Please help us give our students the advantages of a great education in the best large school district in the state of New Mexico, Roswell. Superintendent Tom Burris can be contacted at email@example.com or 575627-2511.

Thought for Today: “We want the facts to fit the preconceptions. When they don’t it is easier to ignore the facts than to change the preconceptions.” — Jessamyn West, American author (1902-1984). Ask your doctor, nurse or pharmacist for help in calibrating your monitor and learning how to use it. (On my website, AskDoctorK.com, I’ve posted a video showing the correct way to use a home blood pressure monitor.) Also ask how often you should check your blood pressure, and share the results of your readings with your doctor. Finally, remember that home monitoring is not a substitute for regular physician checkups. (Dr. Komaroff is a physician and professor at Harvard Medical School.

Unique exhibit taking local art
The Art Department at Eastern New Mexico University- Roswell and the Visual Arts Department of the Fergus Falls Campus of the Minnesota State Community and Technical College are hosting a Mail Art Exchange Exhibit. Any media, style, theme and content of work is accepted and encouraged for this exhibition, but only twodimensional works that measure 5 by 7 inches will be accepted. Eligible artwork is artwork done by anyone associated with the participating institutions (any branch campus) at any time in the past or present, in any capacity. This includes past or present students, faculty, staff, alumni, faculty emeritus, former participants in previous art exhibits, former judges of previous art shows, actors and stage hands in theatrical productions, participants in university-sponsored events of any kind or type. A graphic design component of this exhibit is also being planned. Graphic design students, instructors, graphic designers and others with any association at all to the participating universities/colleges are invited to enter logo designs, again on a 5 by 7 inch format, using the postal abbreviations for Minnesota and New Mexico (MN and NM). The winning graphic design entry, selected from submissions from both the Minnesota and the New Mexico institutions, will be used as a logo for the exhibit. The works submitted locally to ENMU-R will be collected by Nov. 22. Artwork should be sent to Jennie Bower, Art Department, ENMU-Roswell, P.O. Box 6000, 52 University Blvd., Roswell, NM, 88202. Artists can also contact Bower at 624-7226 or Jennie.bower @roswell.enmu.edu. None of the works will be for sale, none will be returned to the artists at the close of the exhibition, and there will be no awards or prizes (with the exception of the graphic design component of the exhibit). All of the submitted works will remain with the institutions that finally receive them as donations to the art collections of these institutions. The artwork will be displayed during a reception on Jan. 23, 2014, from 4-5:30 p.m. The exhibit will be open to the public Friday, Jan. 24, 2014, through Feb. 13, 2014, which will serve as a preview of ENMU-Roswell, Ruidoso, and Portales artwork before they are shipped to Minnesota. The artwork will then be sent to Minnesota State Community and Technical College in Minnesota for their official display during the spring semester of 2014. Meanwhile, an opening reception displaying the works donated from MState campuses to ENMU-Roswell, ENMU (Portales and Ruidoso) is tentatively planned on Thursday, April 17, 2014, from 4-5:30 p.m. That exhibit will be open to the public from Friday, April 18, 2014, through Friday, May 9, 2014.

Cemetery plans: revisited, revised and revived Please bear with me for what I feel will be the last recap of events in an ongoing disagreement as to how the Roswell veterans cemetery should be created. Things are finally coming together and prospects for a veterans cemetery in our area look very promising. The past problems have simply been over how long the creation should take and what degree of perfection is necessary. The original plan (2 ½ years ago) was to finish the immediate necessary preparation and construction within 90 days, and start burials within the first six months. Then, the city would take over the maintenance and upkeep after the “veterans” finished sections ready for interments. During the city’s approval process, another plan focusing on site construction (which would be VA certified) was recommended by the mayor and city planners. This would mean the federal government would take over maintenance and cemetery management after construction was completed. That approach yielded about one chance out of 100 that Roswell would be approved as a VA National Cemetery (as Santa Fe did receive). A local conflict ensued over long-term versus short-term completion. More than a year ago, I wrote a
Leave your mark
column on Louisiana Sen. Mary Landrieu obtaining $8.4 million for a 21-acre rural veterans cemetery in Slidell, La., so that “Louisiana military veterans and their families shouldn’t have to travel hundreds of miles for cemetery services or to visit the graves of their loved ones.” I suggested in the column that possibly Sen. Landrieu could instruct our State’s politicians on how to accomplish that same task in New Mexico. Then, in a column I wrote three months ago, I made the following admonition, “Consider the following: the State of Louisiana currently has seven Government veterans cemeteries, three National and four State. Sen. Mary Landrieu has also obtained $8.4 million for additional veterans cemetery funding. “After sacrificing to defend and protect our country, our military families should not have to travel (100 miles) or more for cemetery services or to visit the graves of their loved ones,” Sen. Landrieu said. Seventy-eight miles is the target limit in Louisiana. Our New Mexico Congressional people have said there is no money for cemeteries or local VA medical care. Why any local or federal politician can’t see why veterans get (negative) and (angry) totally blows my mind! Then, a flurry of activity started.
JOHN TAYLOR VETERANS ADVOCATE
Two months later, Gov. Susana Martinez and New Mexico Veterans Services Secretary Col. Tim Hale announced a plan that would give (us) a shot at a certified veterans cemetery. Not a formal VA National Cemetery, but a VA-approved New Mexico state cemetery, maintained and managed by the State of New Mexico. Project completion is estimated to be approximately 2015-2016, but with a new approach formulated.
A steering committee was formed following meetings held with the veteran community by Congressman Steve Pearce (who invited the Chair man of the House Committee on Veterans Affairs, Jeff Miller, R-FL) and a second meeting by Martinez/Hale (announcing the new approach to certification). The committee members are Jane Batson, Col. Ron McKay, Bert Eldridge, Mayor Del Jurney,Will Cavin, Orlando Padilla, Harry McGraw, Magil
Duran, Richard Moncrief and yours truly. Shortly, a formal Veterans Cemetery Board will be appointed to combine previous efforts into a new, coordinated approach to project completion. A positive turning point and new direction for the veterans cemetery has been created.
Pearce and Miller toured the cemetery property with McKay, Eldridge, McGraw and Taylor to get a feel for the layout, followed by a two hour meeting with the veteran community. Pearce, Miller and McKay, then met with the mayor to discuss planning possibilities involving the two planning factions. The steering committee began to take shape.
Bottom line, the Martinez/Hale state-federal project will begin around 2015-2016 (if all approvals from the VA and State financial people are received). Meanwhile, one acre of the 20acre donated tract will immediately be developed, allowing for completion and first burials in three to four months from Oct. 1. This initial one-acre phase will rely on funding from grants, private and corporate/business contributions (which are tax-deductible). Things are definitely looking up! God bless.

Volunteer with Carlsbad Caverns on National Public Lands Day
CARLSBAD—On Saturday, Sept. 28, Carlsbad Caverns National Park will recognize National Public Lands Day by offering free general entry to the caver n. This year marks the 20th anniversary of National Public Lands Day, the nation’s largest, single-day volunteer effort for public lands. Free general entry will provide access to the two self-guided trails in the cavern, the Big Room and Main Corridor trails. All other ranger-led tours will require normal fees. Carlsbad Caverns National Park also would like to invite the public to take part in a volunteer service project to actively improve their public lands. Volunteers will join rangers in collecting and removing weathered glass and some metal objects from a dumping area that has not been used for more than 80 years. Items in the dump were discarded by residents, visitors, and staff in the 1920s when Carlsbad Caverns was still a monument. This area was previously outside of the monument’s boundaries and there was no garbage collection in place at the time. Museum Curator
Volunteers should arrive at the Carlsbad Caverns visitor center at 9 a.m. to receive orientation and to caravan a short distance to the work site. The site is a quarter of a mile from a parking area and can only be accessed by foot over rocky, vegetated desert terrain. We recommend strong, sturdy footwear, preferably boots. Also, volunteers who own gloves are asked to bring them. Water will be provided by the park. The project will conclude at 12 p.m., when lunch will be provided for all volunteers.
The Eastern New Mexico University- Roswell Foundation will hold its 11th annual Golf Tournament on Saturday, Oct. 19, at NMMI Golf Course. Tee times are 8 a.m. and 1 p.m. The cost for the four-person team scramble tournament is $75 per player or $300 per team. Teams should have a minimum total handicap of 40.
The fee includes breakfast (for morning players), lunch, green fees, carts, and range balls. The top three teams in each flight will receive gift certificates to the NMMI Pro Shop. Other prizes will go to players who make the longest drive and get closest to the pin. Additional prize drawings will also be held with donated items from local businesses.
David W. Kayser said of the project, “Removing the broken glass will help restore this location to a more natural condition. And park archeologists will sort through removed items to gain some insights into the people who lived in and visited the park in its early days.”
Advance registration is required to participate in the service project. To register, contact Education Specialist Helen Fields by Sept. 25 by phone at 575-785-3127 or by email at Helen_m_fields@nps.gov.

Federal gun laws didn’t block Navy Yard shooter AP Photo
In a Friday, April 5, file photo, Newtown, Conn., resident Jennifer Killin wipes tears on the steps of Hartford, Conn., City Hall, during a rally to urge passage of federal legislation to curb gun violence.
WASHINGTON (AP) — The gunman in the mass shootings at the Washington Navy Yard, Aaron Alexis, had a history of violent outbursts, was at least twice accused of firing guns in anger and was in the early stages of treatment for serious mental problems, according to court records and U.S. law enforcement officials. But Alexis apparently managed to exploit seams in the nation’s patchwork of complicated gun laws designed to keep weapons out of the hands of dangerous people. He was able to buy a shotgun in Virginia with out-of-state identification, even though that would have prevented him from buying a hand-
gun. It is illegal for gun dealers to sell handguns to such out-of-state buyers, but the Firearms Owners’ Protection Act, passed by Congress in 1986, opened up interstate sales for shotguns and rifles. Virginia gun laws require only that an out-ofstate buyer show valid identification, pass a background check and otherwise abide by state laws in order to buy a shotgun in the state. Alexis was never prosecuted for the two misdemeanors involving guns. Alexis bought the shotgun at Sharpshooters Small Arms Range in Lorton, Va., on Saturday, according to a statement from the attorney for the gun range.
Michael Slocum said in an email that Alexis rented a rifle, bought bullets and used the range before buying the shotgun and 24 shells. Slocum said Alexis passed a federal background check. Law enforcement officials visited the range Monday, reviewing the store’s video and other records. “What the 1986 Firearms Owners’ Protection Act did was it made it more convenient for gun buyers,” said Kristen Rand, the legislative director at the Violence Policy Center. “That’s the road we’ve been on for a while: The convenience of gun owner always seems to trump the right of victims not to be shot.” Federal gun laws bar the mental-
GOP revise funding strategy WASHINGTON (AP) — House GOP leaders are looking to reverse course and agree to tea party demands to try to use a vote this week on a must-pass temporary government funding bill to block implementation of President Barack Obama’s health care law. A GOP aide says the latest strategy, to be offered to rank-and-file Republicans at a closed-door meeting on Wednesday, would be to link a “defund Obamacare” provision to the stopgap funding bill and send it to the Senate. The aide required anonymity to discuss the strategy because it has not been announced. GOP aides said no decision has been made — “or will be made, until House Republican members meet and talk tomorrow,” Michael Steel, a spokesman for House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, said Tuesday.
The Senate would likely strip out the health care provision and send it to the House, raising the possibility of a confrontation that could lead to a partial government shutdown after the Sept. 30 end of the budget year. The earlier strategy, rejected last week by angry conservatives, would have sent the measure to the Senate as two bills to ensure the Democratic-controlled chamber would be able to ship the spending measure straight to the White House and more easily avert a government shutdown. The idea was to avoid a subsequent vote on a “clean” stopgap spending bill in the House after Senate Democrats vote to strip the provision out. The fear is that angry GOP conservatives might withhold their votes rather than surrender to the Senate and its top Democrat, Majority Leader Harry Reid
of Nevada. The idea of defunding Obama’s health care law has been a crusade of tea party conservatives such as Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, and outside groups like the Heritage Foundation. Conservatives are frustrated that Republicans control only one chamber of Congress and have little chance to enact their agenda over the opposition of Obama and Senate Democrats. Conservatives want to take a must-pass bill hostage and add the assault on the Affordable Care Act in an attempt to force Obama and congressional Democrats to make concessions. GOP leaders have viewed the effort with skepticism since Democrats would never go along and that Republicans are likely to get the blame if the impasse leads to a partial government shutdown.
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid of Nev. walks to a closed-door meeting with House Speaker John Boehner of Ohio, and other congressional leaders on Capitol Hill in Washington, Thursday.

ly ill from legally buying guns from licensed dealers. But the law requires that someone be involuntarily committed to a mental health facility or declared mentally ill by a judge, and that information must be reported to the FBI in order to appear on a background check. In the wake of the 2007 shooting at Virginia Tech, state authorities changed state laws to make it tougher for the mentally ill to buy guns there. But like other recently accused mass shooters, Alexis was never declared mentally ill by a judge or committed to a hospital. He was being treated by the Veterans Administration as recently as August, according to two law enforcement officials, but the Navy had not declared him mentally unfit. The Virginia Tech shooter, Seung Hi Cho, was declared mentally ill by a judge, but nobody ever reported it to federal authorities to get him included in the database of banned purchasers. After the December massacre at a Connecticut elementary school, U.S. lawmakers pushed to overhaul gun laws. Among the proposals was a ban on military-style rifles, including the popular AR-15, and high-capacity ammunition magazines. There was also a plan to expand background checks to make sure anyone who wanted a gun got the approval of the federal government. No legislation has moved forward
in Congress, despite urgent pleas from the president, some lawmakers and victims’ families. President Barack Obama has made a few narrow administrative changes, but those are not likely to impact the kinds of guns most often found at crime scenes. Obama said Tuesday he was concerned that an American ritual could emerge where every few months, the nation suffers a horrific mass shooting, then fails to take action to stop the next one from occurring. He said he would continue speaking out about the need for new gun laws, but that ultimately, it’s up to lawmakers. “I’ve taken steps that are within my control,” Obama said in an interview with Telemundo. “The next phase now is for Congress to go ahead and move.” Monday’s shooting prompted a new round of calls for action from lawmakers. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., and Sen. Joe Manchin, D.-W.Va., the author of a bill on background checks, both said they would like to see a vote on the background checks bill, but the votes aren’t there for passage at this time. Still, Reid said he hopes to get another gun control vote this year. “I don’t want any more bad things to happen, you know. Something’s going to have to get the attention of these characters who don’t want any controls.” Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., a leading advocate for tougher gun control in the Senate, said in a statement that the shooting “is one more event to add to the litany of massacres.” “Congress must stop shirking its responsibility and resume a thoughtful debate on gun violence in this country. We must do more to stop this endless loss of life,” she said.

Ace-happy Portales downs Goddard Wednesday, September 18, 2013 Phone: 575-622-7710, ext. 304
KEVIN J. KELLER RECORD SPORTS EDITOR
Roswell Daily Record
Like goals in soccer, kills get the bulk of attention in volleyball and passing gets overlooked. And when you can’t pass, you can’t win. Goddard found that out the hard way on Tuesday at Ground
Zero Gymnasium. The Rockets struggled mightily with serve-receive and never got their offense going in a three-set loss to visiting Portales. “That shut us down. Whenever you let them serve at you like that and we can’t pick the ball up, of course we can’t run any offense,” said Rocket coach Sheri
Gibson about her team’s struggles with serve-receive. “And then when we would get one, we were throwing them free balls to feed back to us.” Goddard (7-3) allowed 18 aces on the night — 10 in the first set, two in the second set and six in

LAWRENCE FOSTER RECORD ASST. SPORTS EDITOR
Among his famous quotes, of which there are many, legendary Green Bay Packers coach Vince Lombardi said that, “We didn't lose the game; we just ran out of time.” That was the case during the Goddard girls soccer game against Carlsbad on Tuesday. Following a sluggish start, the Rockets dominated possession and shots on goal, but came up short in a 2-1 loss to the Cavegirls. In the game’s first 20 minutes, Carlsbad was the team asserting itself as shots came in bunches. In the 18th minute, the Cavegirls’ Amelia Bierle fired a shot from the right side of the Rocket box that bounced into the opposite corner, making it 1-0. The deficit seemed to serve as a kick starter for Goddard (7-4). In the 20th minute, Danielle Hubbard had a free kick that required a great save by Cavegirl keeper Kodie Johnson to keep the Rockets off the board. Goddard kept the pressure on the remainder of the half, but couldn’t find the back of the net. The Rockets continued their roll in the second half and, finally, in the 54th minute, the pressure paid off. Goddard’s Bethany Alvarez had possession of the ball deep in the Carlsbad box when she fired a cross to her left. The pass found Desarae See PITCH, Page B3 Marty Foster Photo

Sanchez scores 3, RHS pounds Hobbs LOCAL BRIEFS
Roswell’s Victor Garcia gains control of the ball during the Coyotes’ 8-3 victory over Hobbs, Tuesday.
There are few things as sweet in sports as beating a team after losing to them earlier in the season. The Roswell boys soccer team experienced that high on Tuesday after trouncing Hobbs 8-3. Last week, the Eagles handed the Coyotes (11-1) their first loss of the season, thanks in large part to a two-man ref system and the absence of Fernando Sanchez. In the rematch, however, there were three refs and
Sanchez came back with a vengeance. Sanchez scored the first goal in the first minute off a Victor Garcia assist and, for the Coyotes’ second goal, Garcia was the beneficiary of a pass from Diego Aceves to make it 2-0. See BRIEFS, Page B3

AP Pro32: Broncos move to top of rankings
Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos dismantled the defending Super Bowl champion Baltimore Ravens in the season opener. Then they delivered a convincing victory on the road against Manning’s younger brother and the rest of the New York Giants. The strong start helped the Broncos hold off the Seattle Seahawks for the top spot in this week’s AP Pro32 power rankings, released Tuesday. The Broncos moved up one spot from second after receiving eight first-place votes. “Denver looks Super Bowl good right now,” said Newsday columnist Bob Glauber, referring to the All-Pro left tackle. After their commanding win over San Francisco on Sunday night, the Seahawks swooped in to take the other four first-place votes and settle in at No. 2. The 49ers, after tallying seven first-place votes last week, fell two spots to third. Seattle, which was fifth last week, settled the debate until the rematch in December about which bitter NFC West division rival is better by beating the 49ers 29-3. The Seahawks managed that even with a rough game by quar-
terback Russell Wilson, further highlighting their aggressive, punishing defense that’s still missing cornerback Brandon Browner and defensive ends Chris Clemons and Bruce Irvin because of injuries. “Can anyone go into Seattle and get a win?” asked voter Pat Kirwan of CBSSports.com and SiriusXM satellite radio. Voters have even begun to envision a Denver -Seattle Super Bowl, as far ahead as February might be. “I’m not convinced Peyton can beat Seahawks’ secondary,” wrote John Czarnecki of FoxSports.com. Houston and Green Bay rounded out the top five. NBC Sports analyst Tony Dungy raised a question about the Texans. “Two come from behind wins. Is that good or bad?” the former Colts coach asked. New England and New Orleans tied for sixth. Chicago was eighth, Atlanta finished ninth, Kansas City jumped seven spots to 10th and Miami made the same leap to 11th. The Dolphins were the lowest of the eight unbeaten teams. The Saints continued their creep
toward the top, catching the eye of the panel with an uncharacteristically stout defense. “My hat is off to Rob Ryan and the defensive product he’s putting on the field,” Kirwan wrote, praising the coordinator. “The Saints have given up 31 points in two games. Last year they gave up 75 points in the first two games.” Added Alex Marvez of FoxSports.com: “Who Dat?!? The Saints’ defense wasn’t supposed to play this well in 2013.” Baltimore, Cincinnati, Dallas, Indianapolis, San Diego, Philadelphia, St. Louis, Detroit and Tennessee filled out slots 12 through 20. The Chargers made the biggest jump, advancing nine spots from 25th after a 33-30 victory on the road over the Eagles. The bottom third of the league comprised Arizona, Buffalo, the Giants, Minnesota, Washington, the Jets, Pittsburgh and Carolina, with Oakland and Tampa Bay tying for 29th. Then came Cleveland, one of eight teams without a win. Finally, for the second straight week, Jacksonville was a unanimous choice for last place. The Jaguars have scored 11 points over two games.

Rangers snap seven-game skid, stay tied atop wild-card standings ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — It took only one pitch Tuesday night for the Texas Rangers to take the lead in a game for the first time in more than a week. Ian Kinsler drove Jeremy Hellickson’s first fastball for a home run, and the Rangers went on to beat the Tampa Bay Rays 7-1, breaking a sevengame losing streak. “Obviously we’ve been fighting from behind a lot in this last week or so,” Kinsler said. “So to be able to get a first hit out of the way, and a first run out of the way, gave (Alexi) Ogando a little bit of breathing room.” Elvis Andrus felt it from

Holliday leads Cards to 11-4 win over Rockies
DENVER (AP) — Matt Holliday had four hits, including a two-run homer, to help the St. Louis Cardinals take over sole possession of the NL Central with an 11-4 victory over the Colorado Rockies on Tuesday night. The Cardinals entered the night tied with the Pittsburgh Pirates, who lost 5-2 at home to San Diego. St. Louis reduced its magic number for clinching a playoff spot to five with 11 games remaining. Joe Kelly (9-4) baffled the Rockies as he allowed three hits over five sharp innings before turning a 10-0 lead over to the bullpen. The hard-throwing right-hander has been one of the team’s most consistent pitchers since becoming a permanent member of the rotation in July. Juan Nicasio (8-8) struggled with his command, lasting just 2 2⁄3 innings and allowing eight runs, which tied a career high. Holliday led an 18-hit night by the Cardinals, who had seven players with at least two hits. Holliday finished 4 for 4 with a walk, double and two-run homer against his former team. He drove in three runs and scored twice. The Cardinals ran away with the game in the third when they sent 11 batters to the plate and scored six times. Daniel Descalso had a two-run triple in the decisive inning, while Holliday added a double and an RBI
you know you’re a better team than that,” Rangers manager Ron Washington said. Kinsler’s 12th home run broke a streak of seven homerless games for the Rangers, their longest in 23 years. The 1-0 lead marked the first time Texas has led in a game since its last victory, on Sept. 8. Kinsler added a two-run single in the Rangers’ four-run third, driving in three runs on the first two pitches he saw from Helickson (11-9). Andrus followed with his third home run of the season to put the Rangers up 5-0. “The first pitch of the game was not a good fast-
ball,” Hellickson said. “Then I settled down a bit, but in the third I walked the leadof f guy (Mitch Moreland) and you can’t do that against a lineup like that.” Ogando (7-4) won in his first start since Aug. 13, giving up two hits in five innings. He had made four relief appearances after spending three weeks on the disabled list with shoulder inflammation. Ogando retired the first seven Rays he faced, the last four with strikeouts, before Jose Lobaton homered in the third inning. Washington said after the game that Ogando will start Sunday at Kansas City.
single. Colorado’s Michael Cuddyer finished 2 for 3 with a walk and an RBI to raise his average to .331, which is tops in the NL. Kelly hardly seemed intimidated in his first start at Coors Field. He didn’t allow a base runner to reach as far as third base until the fourth inning. He wiggled out of that jam when first baseman Matt Adams corralled Josh Rutledge’s liner. Once Kelly was out of the game, the Rockies went to work as they scored four runs off reliever Carlos Martinez in the seventh. But the bullpen shut down the Rockies from there, with Kevin Siegrist striking out pinch-hitter Jordan Pacheco to end the game. Leadoff hitter Matt Carpenter was frequently on base for the Cardinals, with two singles and a hit by pitch. He leads the league hits (187), doubles (51) and multi-hit games (60). Yadier Molina gave the Cardinals a lead in the first inning with a two-out single to center. Molina is one of the top hitters in the league with runners in scoring position. Todd Helton nearly tied the game in the bottom half of the first, but Holliday made a leaping catch against the fence in left field. The 40-year-old Helton announced last weekend his decision to retire after his 17th season with the Rockies. He leaves as the franchise’s leader in virtually every offensive category.

IRVING, Texas (AP) — The Dallas Cowboys have released defensive tackle Landon Cohen and replaced him with David Carter. Carter was added by the Cowboys on Tuesday, a little more than two weeks after the Arizona Cardinals released him at the end of the preseason. He was a sixth-round pick by Arizona in 2011. Carter has played in 32 games with four starts, recording 18 tackles and a sack. Cohen signed with Dallas early in training camp and played in both regular-season games, getting one tackle and one pressure. The Cowboys also released receiver Danny Coale from their practice squad and replaced him with receiver Jamar Newsome, who has played in eight games with Jacksonville and Kansas City.
Clark to fill in for Clady as Manning’s protector
ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — The Denver Broncos’ excitement over their scorching start is tempered by a serious injury to All-Pro left tackle Ryan Clady and the specter of being without Peyton Manning’s protector on the blindside for a lengthy time. Clady might miss the rest of the season or at least a good chunk of it with a sprained left foot. While the team hasn’t specified the exact nature or extent of his injury, it’s believed to be a Lisfranc sprain, which usually involves a separation of ligaments and joints in the bottom of the foot and requires an arduous rehab. The Broncos already have been without two of their other stars. All-Pro linebacker Von Miller is serving a six-game suspension and perennial Pro Bowl cornerback Champ Bailey (foot) hasn’t practiced since Aug. 17. Clady was hurt in the closing minutes Sunday when Giants defensive lineman Cullen Jenkins rolled up on him while the Broncos were trying to run out the clock in their 41-23 win. The Broncos were still contemplating their options with Clady on Tuesday. Among them: placing him on season-ending injured reserve or on IR with a designation to return, which would keep him out a minimum of eight weeks. That’s a special one-time-only provi-
“Ogando went out there and did way beyond the call of duty, and I think he deserves a lot of credit,” Washington said. “We weren’t expecting five (innings). I was hoping he could go deep, but he gave us five quality innings.” Leonys Martin doubled twice and added a ninthinning home run, his eighth of the season. Rookie Wil Myers had two of Tampa Bay’s four hits. Hellickson, who is 1-6 in his last nine starts, gave up five earned runs in 2 23 innings. NOTES: Kinsler has led off 29 games with a home run, two this season. ... Rangers OF Nelson Cruz,
sion of IR that would allow Clady to return to practice in six weeks and rejoin the roster in Week 11, at the earliest. Either way, their new left tackle is undrafted fifth-year journeyman Chris Clark, who coincidentally signed a two-year contract extension this week. Clady wasn’t in the locker room during the open access period Tuesday, and coach John Fox won’t meet with the media again until Thursday. Clark said Clady’s spirits are up but that he didn’t even ask him how long he’ll be out. “You know why? It really doesn’t matter,” Clark said. “I’m here to do a job and if my job is to start for however long, that’s how it’s going to be. Like I said, I’ve always viewed myself as a starter. In this league you can’t view yourself as a backup, so I prepare myself as if I’m going to play every week.” The Broncos are riding high behind Manning, the first NFL quarterback ever to throw for nine touchdowns with no interceptions in the first two weeks of a season. Clark, who has started six times at tight end, will make his first start at left tackle on Monday night when the Broncos (2-0) host the Oakland Raiders (1-1), who are tied for the league lead with nine sacks. “I’ve been behind Ryan for a while now and I’ve learned a lot, so I can pick his brain without even talking to him,” Clark said. “Just trying to do things the way he does things, mimic things he does but put my own twist on it is pretty much the way I play. I feel everything will be OK.” Manning leads the league with a 131.0 passer rating and he hasn’t been intercepted in 85 pass attempts — thanks in part to the protection provided by Clady. Clark put in plenty of work with Manning and the rest of the starters in the offseason while Clady was recuperating from right shoulder surgery and awaiting a new contract. “That definitely helped a lot,” Clark said. “You get a chance to learn different things, snap counts, learn his rhythm.” Clark said he realizes that anybody would be a downgrade from Clady, a three-time Pro Bowler and two-time All-Pro who allowed just one sack in more than 1,110 snaps last season and has played in all 85 of Denver’s games since entering the NFL in 2008 as the 12th overall pick. That dominance and durability led to a five-year, $52.5 million contract this summer. “It’s not about filling a guy’s shoes for me,” Clark said. “It’s about me creating my legacy or whatever, just helping the team the best way I can, doing my job.” Clark said his aim right now is to make sure the Broncos’ Super Bowl aspirations aren’t derailed because of Clady’s injury. “No one wants to be that guy,” Clark said.

Flores, who was able to redirect the ball to the opposite post. The shot bounced off the post and in, tying the game at 1. “We just told them to hang in there and play tough,” Rocket coach Betty Elizondo said regarding what she told her team at halftime. “We felt like when we were coming of f the field, Carlsbad was getting to them a little bit. We told them, ‘No, you can’t have that. We have got to play tough and be mentally tough.’” In the 59th minute, Carlsbad got one of its few second-half opportunities and cashed in when Shay Rostro scored off a deflection. Goddard had numerous chances to tie the score, particularly in the final 10 minutes when possession was seemingly just in the Cavegirl box. In the 72nd minute, Goddard sent two crosses into the box, but the Rockets couldn’t get a good touch on either pass. A few minutes later, Hubbard sent another cross into the box, but Cierra Saavedra’s header was saved by Johnson. Despite the loss, Elizondo said that this was a good game for her team. “The girls decided to step up and play. I told them,

the third set. That killed any chance of the Rockets using their decided offensive advantage. “We just couldn’t get our rhythm. We couldn’t get anything started,” Gibson said. “We just couldn’t get anything going. I don’t know. (The girls) weren’t sure what was going on. “We just never got into the (match).” In the first set, Portales added seven kills to the 10 aces for a 25-20 victory. The Rams trailed in the early going, but took control when Kristen Wagner, who led all hitters with 14 kills on the night, came up to serve. She delivered five aces during an eight-point service game, helping Portales take a 14-9 lead. Goddard closed within three late in the set, but Portales won three of the next four to close out the victory. In the second set, Portales again had seven kills, including four from Wagner, on its way to a 25-21 win. Goddard controlled throughout the

The rout was on from there as Garcia (two), Brighton Pope, Gerrardo Barron, Sanchez and Chris Mesquita added to the total. Roswell coach James Vernon said that this was a much different game than the first matchup. “The guys weren’t able to play their style in Hobbs and we weren’t able to push into the attack,” he said. “(In this game having all three refs) changed the whole scheme of things because we could play an offsides trap.”
Carlsbad 2, Goddard 0 CARLSBAD — Carlsbad scored two second-half goals to come away with a win over visiting Goddard on Tuesday. Miguel Robles had 10 saves in goal for the Rockets (4-6).
NMMI 2, Artesia 1, PK AR TESIA — NMMI’s Pablo Zamorano had the winning penalty kick as the Colts came away with a 6-5 penalty-kick win over the Bulldogs on Tuesday. The Colts (2-5) trailed 1-0 before German Corral tied the game with a goal in the 32nd minute. Neither team was able to score the rest of the game or either overtime, which sent it to penalty kicks.

set, but back-to-back tandem blocks by the Rams started a five-point run that closed the set for Portales. In the third set, Goddard built a 1514 lead, but saw it wiped away by another long service game and a dominating finish that gave Portales a 25-17 win. Kambrey Blakey’s kill tied the match at 15 and spurred a run that saw the Rams win 11 of the final 13 points. During the run, Portales had five kills and four aces. All of it came back to one thing — serve-receive. Gibson said afterward that her team may have just gotten the wake-up call it needed. “I think this is maybe a wake up for them. Hopefully we’ll turn it around from now. “We just had that same conversation in (the locker room). ... When they’re on top of their game, I don’t think they are going to be stopped very easily.” Shaylee Griffin led Goddard’s offense with six kills on the night. Megan Meeks added five kills.

Father of the Constitution
James Madison was a smart student of government and a great statesman. He was a friend of Thomas Jefferson. Madison was only 36 when the Constitution was written. He influenced what went on at the Constitutional Convention more than any other delegate. He wrote a plan for the new government, the Virginia Plan. Many of his ideas were adopted. He also took many notes and wrote up detailed reports. His records are our best sources of what went on. These were
not published until after his death. Madison worked hard for ratification. He later served as a Virginia congressman and proposed the first 10 amendments (the Bill of Rights). After serving as James Madison secretary of state under Thomas Jefferson, he was elected as our fourth president. He lived longer than any other signer. He died at the age of 85 in 1836.
