Lawmakers oppose gay marriage, file court brief SANTA FE (AP) — Republican legislators are urging New Mexico’s highest court to declare that state law prohibits same-sex marriage.

Nearly two dozen current and former GOP lawmakers made the legal pitch to the state Supreme Court in a “friend-of-the-court” brief filed in advance of a hearing later this month in a case that could resolve whether gay marriage is legal in New Mexico.

The American Civil Liberties Union of New Mexico and other supporters of gay marriage also submitted written arguments Monday, providing a preview of the

legal debate that will play out in front of the fivemember court at its Oct. 23 hearing. At issue for the high court is an Albuquerque judge’s ruling last month that it’s unconstitutional to deny marriage licenses to gay and lesbian couples. “New Mexico’s guarantee of equal protection to its citizens demands that same sex couples be permitted to enjoy the benefits of marriage in the same way and to the same extent as other New Mexico citizens,” Attorney General Gary King said in arguments submitted on behalf of the judge. New Mexico law doesn’t

explicitly authorize or prohibit gay marriage. However, the GOP lawmakers said the law bans same-sex marriage because state statutes contain a marriage license application with sections for male and female applications and there are other provisions in law that refer to “husband” and “wife.

The Republican lawmakers, represented by a conservative Christian law group called the Alliance Defending Freedom, said anti-discrimination and equal protection guarantees in the state constitution do not provide a legal right to marriage for same-sex couples.

The lawmakers said that “the judiciary should exercise caution when asked to divine fundamental and important constitutional rights not expressly provided in the Constitution’s text.” The gay marriage issue has moved to the political front burner in New Mexico since August when Dona Ana County Clerk L ynn Ellins decided independently to allow marriage licenses for same-sex couples. At least seven other county clerks have followed, some because of rulings in lawsuits brought by same-sex couples. The gay marriage issue


made its way to the Supreme Court after the state’s 33 counties and county clerks statewide asked the five justices to clarify whether local officials are required to grant marriage licenses to samesex couples.

County clerks historically have relied on the marriage license application in state law in denying marriage licenses to same-sex couples. Ellins, in written arguments to the Supreme Court, pointed out that the state’s Human Rights Act prohibits discrimination by businesses and others on the basis of sexual orienta-

tion. “This court now has the opportunity to establish marital equality in New Mexico, and lay a cornerstone of its legacy in the history of redressing discrimination based on sexual orientation,” a lawyer for Ellins wrote. Sixteen University of New Mexico law professors also urged the court to declare same-sex marriage legal. “The limitation imposed on same-sex couples seeking to exercise their right to marry discriminates against members of a group with a history of marginalization and exclusion,” the law professors said.

New signs illegal immigration is rising

WASHINGTON (AP) — The number of immigrants crossing the border illegally into the U.S. appears to be on the rise again after dropping during the recession. The total number of immigrants living in this country unlawfully edged up from 11.3 million in 2009 to 11.7 million last year, with those from countries other than Mexico at an apparent all-time high, according to a report released Monday by the Pew Research Center’s Hispanic Trends Project. The change is within the margin of error, and there will be a more precise census measure released later this year. Still, based in part on other factors such as increased U.S. border apprehensions, the sharp decline in illegal immigration from 2007-2009 has clearly bottomed out, with signs the numbers are now rising, Pew said. Pew said that among the six states with the largest numbers of immigrants here illegally, only Texas had a consistent increase in illegal immigration from 2007 to 2011, due in part to its stronger economy. Its number was unchanged from 2011 to 2012. Two states — Florida and New Jersey — had an initial drop but

Kenyan Defense Forces leave the near vicinity of the Westgate Mall in Nairobi, Kenya, on Monday.

NAIROBI, Kenya (AP) — Kenyan security forces battled alQaida-linked terrorists in an upscale mall for a third day Monday in what they said was a final push to rescue the last few hostages in a siege that has left at least 62 people dead. While the government announced Sunday that “most” hostages had been released, a security expert with contacts inside the mall said at least 10 were still being held by a band of attackers described as “a multinational collection from all over the world.” Kenyan Foreign Minister Amina Mohamed said “two or three Americans” and “one Brit” were among those who attacked the mall. She said in an interview with the PBS “NewsHour” program that the Americans were 18 to 19 years old, of Somali or Arab origin and lived “in Minnesota and one other place” in the U.S. U.S. officials said they were looking into whether any Americans were involved. State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said Monday that the department had “no definitive evidence of the nationalities or the identities” of the attackers. The security expert, who insisted on anonymity to talk freely about the situation, said many hostages had been freed or escaped in the previous 24-36 hours, including some who were in hiding. However, there were at least 30 hostages when the assault by al-Shabab militants began Saturday, he said, and “it’s clear” that Kenyan security officials “haven’t cleared the building fully.” Flames and dark plumes of smoke rose Monday above the Westgate shopping complex for more than an hour after four large explosions rocked the surrounding neighborhood.

Esperanza House does the forensic interviews and forensic exams of victims. It operates the SANE program, which stands for the Sexual Assault Nurse Examiners. Qualified nurses must be registered with a minimum of three to five years experience. They take an intensive 6-day class, undergo a mentorship where they work with other nurse examiners. The nurses must also

smoke was pouring through a large skylight inside the mall’s main department and grocery store, where mattresses and other flammable goods appeared to have been set on fire, a person with knowledge of the rescue operation told The Associated Press. The explosions were followed by volleys of gunfire as police helicopters and a military jet circled overhead, giving the neighborhood the feel of a war zone. By evening, Kenyan security officials claimed the upper hand. “Taken control of all the floors. We’re not here to feed the attackers with pastries but to finish and punish them,” Police Inspector General David Kimaiyo said on Twitter. Kenya’s Interior Minister Joseph Ole Lenku said the evacuation of hostages had gone “very, very well” and that Kenyan officials were “very certain” that few if any hostages were left in the building. But with the mall cordoned off and under heavy security it was not possible to independently verify the assertions. Similar claims of a quick resolution were made by Kenyan officials on Sunday and the siege continued. Authorities have also not provided any details on how many hostages were freed or how many still remain captive. Three attackers were killed in the fighting Monday, Kenyan authorities said, and more than 10 suspects arrested. Eleven Kenyan soldiers were wounded in the running gun battles. Somalia’s al-Qaida-linked rebel group, al-Shabab, which claimed responsibility for the attack, said the hostage-takers were well-armed and ready to take on the Kenyan forces. An al-Shabab spokesman, Sheik Ali Mohamud Rage, said in an audio file posted on a militant website that the attackers had been ordered to “take punitive action against the hostages” if force was used to try to rescue them. The attackers have lots of ammunition, the militant group said in a Twitter feed, adding that Kenya’s government would be responsible for any loss of hostages’ lives. A Western security official in Nairobi who insisted on not being named to share information about the rescue operation said the only reason the siege hadn’t yet ended would be because hostages were still inside. Westgate mall, a vast complex with multiple banks that have secure vaults and bulletproof glass partitions, as well as a casino, is difficult to take, the official said. “They are not made for storming,” he said of the labyrinth of shops, restaurants and offices. “They’re made to be unstormable.” At least 62 people were killed in the assault Saturday by some 12 to 15 al-Shabab militants wielding grenades and firing on civilians inside the mall, which includes shops for such retail giants as Nike, Adidas and Bose and is popular with foreigners and wealthy Kenyans. The militants specifically targeted non-Muslims, and at least 18 foreigners were among the dead, including six Britons, as well as citizens from France, Canada, the Netherlands, Australia, Peru, India, Ghana, South Africa and China. Nearly 200 people were wounded, including five Americans. Fighters from an array of nations participated in the assault, according to Kenya Chief of Defense forces Gen. Julius Karangi. “We have an idea who these people are and they are clearly a multinational collection from all over the world,” he said. Al-Shabab, whose name means “The Youth” in Arabic, said the mall attack was in retribution for Kenyan forces’ 2011 push into neighboring Somalia. It was the deadliest terrorist attack in Kenya since the 1998 al-Qaida truck bombing of the U.S. Embassy in Nairobi, which killed more than 200 people. An extremist Islamic terrorist force that grew out of the anarchy that crippled Somalia after warlords ousted a longtime dictator in 1991, al-Shabab is estimated to have several thousand fighters, including a few hundred foreigners, among them militants from the Middle East with experience in the Iraq and Afghanistan conflicts. Others are young, raw recruits from Somali communities in the United States and Europe. For years Minnesota has been the center of a federal investigation into the recruiting of fighters for al-Shabab. Authorities say about two dozen young men have left Minnesota since 2007 to join the group. Minnesota’s Somali community is the largest in the U.S. Somali President Hassan Sheikh Mohamud said the attack showed that al-Shabab was a threat not just to Somalia but to the international community. Reports that some of the attackers may have been Somalis who lived in the United States illustrate the global nature of the militant group, the Somali leader said in a speech at Ohio State University. “Today, there are clear evidences that Shabab is not a threat to Somalia and Somali people only,” he said. “They are a threat to the continent of Africa, and the world at large.” As the crisis passed the 48-hour mark, a video emerged that was taken by someone inside the mall’s main department store when the assault began. It video showed frightened and unsure shoppers crouching as long, loud volleys of gunfire could be heard. Kenyans in many parts of the country stood in long lines Monday to donate blood to aid the nearly 200 people injured in the attack. Fundraisers raised hundreds of thousands of dollars, though government officials warned of scam artists taking advantage of the tragedy. Roswell Daily Record

nals. In addition, they feel shame associated with the crimes. “Many choose not to make a police report, and many who file a report choose not to prosecute. We try to stay neutral. We help them out whether they choose to report it or not,” Turner said. Esperanza House supplies whatever resources the victim may require, from individual counseling to transportation to medical treatment for STDs contracted as a result of the crime. The organization’s phones are answered 24 hours a day. Turner said sexual assault is one of the most difficult types of cases to prosecute. Many people still adhere to the old myth that sexual assault and sexual abuse of children are sex crimes. “This not a sex crime. It’s a violent crime. It’s all about power and control,” said Turner. He praised United Way for their support of Esperanza House. “United Way makes the whole community stronger.

from carrying on. “We noticed the smoke from the tire,” said Ralph Sadroe of Grants, who was taking his third trip for the New Mexico Operation Wounded Warrior ride. “It took the whole wheel off. Fortunately no one got hurt.” Two riders returned to Moriarty with the trailers, dropped it off and will rent another trailer for the remainder of the ride to San Antonio. Bikers from Northwest and Northeast New Mexico converge in Albuquerque then pick up riders and donations as they pass American Legion posts while riding through the state. The destination is Fort Sam Houston in San Antonio, where a military medicine hospital treats veterans suffering traumatic wounds received in combat. The riders are housed for a few days and given time to visit with the patients.

to methane gas and eventually to compressed natural gas. “AG Power is excited that the county, dairies and community have all come together to help support and get behind this project,” Vaughn said. “We are giving back to the dairies, to the community, to the environment. That is good for the community, the environment, and to us as a nation.” Some 22 dairies are expected to be included in the future, Vaughn said. “We plan start on each one of those as soon as possible,” he said. “This is as process we want to use and do throughout the state and throughout other states across the U.S.” The smell from manure that now stand piled high, and lagoons that bubble with methane at area dairies, should be reduced once AG Power’s plan is fully realized. Hopefully, the fly population also should decrease. “You won’t see those piles any-

“It’s a very moving experience,” said Santiago Vasquez, of Post 28. “It’s good for both of them. The veterans who’ve already experience war, they’re going over there and offering them a hand.” The items collected included clothing the wounded veterans could wear in the hospital, like T-shirts and socks, and toothpaste or personal items. Roswell riders met the other motorcyclists near Vaughn to escort them the rest of the way to town. They pulled into Post 28 just before 5 p.m. to stay overnight before heading out today for another stop in Fort Stockton.

then increases during the same 2007-2011 period. Three states — California, Illinois and New York — showed only declines. “As a whole, with the recession ending, the decrease in illegal immigration has stopped,” said Jeffrey Passel, a senior demographer at Pew. Passel noted that historically the level of illegal immigration has been closely tied to the strength of the U.S. economy and availability of jobs. Since 2009, the average U.S. unemployment rate has dropped from 9.3 percent to 8.1 percent last year, with signs of strength in the construction industry, which yields jobs generally attractive to newly


dren about how to recognize and deal with inappropriate behavior. They are also available to give talks to any interested group.

The Pew analysis is based on census data through March 2012. Because the Census Bureau does not ask people about their immigration status, the estimate on illegal immigrants is derived largely by subtracting the estimated legal immigrant population from the total foreignborn population. It is a method that has been used by the government and Pew for many years and is generally accepted. Analysts said it was hard to predict whether immigrants in the country illegally could eventually exceed the record total of 12.2 million in 2007. Continued modest increases are possible, but another big surge like the one seen in the late 1990s and early 2000s isn’t likely, due in part to demographic factors such as Mexico’s aging workforce.

more,” Vaughn said. “You won’t smell it, you won’t see it.” Four other facilities are in the works, planned to operate in the same manner as the first. In all, the company expects to employ 12-15 workers at each plant. “We should be able to reduce about 90 percent of the odor in the air,” Vaughn said. Once up and running, the manure will be collected daily. The waste will be collected, mixed with the green water from the dairy operations and run underground through the pipeline. The lagoons on participating dairies will no longer be needed. Once complete, the goal is to improve air quality around the dairies, produce renewable biofuel and reduce dependence on foreign oil, Vaughn said. “Our mission is to show that we can take waste and convert it to a usable commodity, and support the effort of reducing our need for foreign oil,” Vaughn said. “It’s the marriage of agriculture, and oil and gas. We have to prove we have a sustainable option, as it relates to gas and transportation fuels.” The methane gas produced at the

40-acre facility will be transported to filling stations where it will be converted to compressed natural gas. From there, it can be used by buses and trucks. “The more we use that, the less we need to refine oil, the less we need oil from overseas,” Vaughn said. State Senator Cliff Pirtle, R-Dist.32, said the project is positive for the industry. “Anytime you can take something that’s a waste and turn it into positive energy, it’s exciting,” Pirtle said. “It will create jobs and be an innovative solution.” County Commissioners approved a resolution last week that allowed the company to go out for a $20 million bond. By taking the action, the county will defer taxes on the property. However, in lieu of taxes, AG Power, will pay an equal amount of taxes to public entities. AG Power will also hold the county har mless with the bond payments. The bond sale should get underway mid-October and the project should commence shortly after that, Vaughn said.

EU says Iran, 6 key nations to hold nuclear talks

UNITED NATIONS (AP) — Iran’s new foreign minister will join talks with six key nations trying to rein in the Islamic Republic’s nuclear program later this week at the United Nations, the European Union’s foreign policy chief said Monday. Thursday’s meeting on the sidelines of the U.N. General Assembly would be the first in six years between a U.S. secretary of state and an Iranian foreign minister. It comes amid signs of a possible thaw in US-Iranian diplomatic relations, which were cut after the 1979 Islamic Revolution. Catherine Ashton, the chief nuclear negotiator, told reporters after meeting Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif that she saw “energy and determination” for talks with the U.S., Russia, China, Britain, France and Germany to move forward. On Twitter, the U.S.-educated Zarif called the meeting with Ashton “positive” and added, “Need new start under new circumstances.” The meeting Thursday between the Western powers and Iran will be the first since April, when discussions on how to reduce

fears that Tehran might use its nuclear technology for weapons stalled at a meeting in Almaty, Kazakhstan. U.S. officials said Secretary of State John Kerry will attend. It would mark the first meeting between the top U.S. and Iranian diplomats since U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice met with Iranian For-

eign Minister Manoucher Mottaki in the Egyptian resort of Sharm el-Sheikh in May 2007. The election of Iran’s new president, Hasan Rouhani, considered a relative moderate in the country’s hardline clerical regime, has sparked speculation about possible movement on the nuclear issue. Rouhani said last month that the

foreign ministry — not the Supreme National Security Council — will lead nuclear talks with world powers, a shift away from security officials being in control. Rouhani is scheduled to address the U.N. on Tuesday. U.S. State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said the United States hopes the new Iranian gov-

ernment “will engage substantively with the international community to reach a diplomatic solution to Iran’s nuclear program and to cooperate fully” with the International Atomic Energy Agency in its investigation. “We remain ready to work with Iran should the Rouhani administration choose to engage seriously,” she said. Ashton said she and her team will meet with Zarif again in October to follow up on Thursday’s meeting to continue their discussion on reviving longstalled negotiations. “We had a good and constructive discussion,” she said of her half-hour meeting with Zarif. “We didn’t talk about the details of what we would do. The purpose of this meeting was to establish how we would go forward.” The U.N. Security Council has imposed four rounds of sanctions against Iran because of concerns it is seeking to develop nuclear weapons and its refusal to suspend uranium enrichment. The U.S. and its Western allies have imposed even more punishing sanctions which have

severely af fected Iran’s economy and drawn criticism from its citizens. Iran insists its nuclear program is peaceful, aimed only at producing energy and isotopes for medical use. Rouhani told NBC last week that Iran has “never pursued or sought a nuclear bomb, and we are not going to do so.” Rouhani has repeatedly appealed to the U.S. and allies to roll back sanctions to move ahead negotiations. Before leaving for New York, Rouhani urged Western leaders to heed his appeals for greater dialogue and take steps to ease economic sanctions on Iran as a path to “reach joint interests.” Asked if she thought a breakthrough was imminent on restarting negotiations, Ashton replied, “I was struck, as I said, by the energy and determination that the foreign minister demonstrated to me.” “I have worked, I think, very hard to find a way in which we can address this issue of great concern, and I will take every opportunity to try and do that — and I hope this will be one,” she said.

Floods damaged, but also brought relief Some teachers bristle at stipends for transfers SANTA FE (AP) — Some New Mexico teachers are bristling at a new state program that offers a $5,000 stipend for those who agree to transfer from top-graded schools to low-graded ones. Teacher union officials said the initiative by Gov. Susana Martinez’s administration will be both ineffective and disruptive. Meanwhile, an administration spokesman said the program is “about helping students” in struggling schools. According to the Public Education Department, teachers in the Española, Questa and Taos school districts in northern New Mexico have expressed interest in the program, the Santa Fe New Mexican reported. Under the program, the state will pay $5,000 stipends to teachers who agree to transfer from A- and B-graded schools to one labeled D or F. Transferring teachers must commit to two years at their new schools. The deadline to apply is Sept. 30. “It’s a false assumption that just because a teacher works at a better school because of the A-F grade that they are a better teacher,” said Bernice-Garcia Baca, a school counselor who is president of the National Education Association’s affiliate in Santa Fe. “I am sure most of the teachers at those A and B schools are excellent, but I’m just as sure that many of our teachers working at D and F schools are excellent, too.” Larry Behrens, spokesman for the Public Education Department, said the offer “isn’t about labeling teachers, it’s about helping students. Practices utilized at our successful schools could be extended to our struggling schools if the educators involved feel it is the right fit for students.” In August, the governor also announced that more than 100 teachers working in the areas of science, technology, engineering and mathematics would receive a $5,000 stipend this year for transferring to or remaining in “hard-to-staff” schools around the state.

Fidel Serano, left, and Jose Perez use a canoe to help their neighbors whose properties were flooded by a raging Rio Chama on Wednesday in Chili, about five miles north of Española.

BERNARDO (AP) — Recent flooding brought widespread damage to New Mexico, but the rain also provided significant relief for the state’s drought. Some places, like Albuquerque, are still well short of their 36-month rainfall average, but the Pecos River in eastern New Mexico came out ahead, the Albuquerque Jour nal reported. Pecos reservoir storage for area farmers went from 11 percent full to 92 percent in less than two weeks. While the flooding created problems in Pecos Valley towns, the boost to the water supply was a bless-

ing in the drought-plagued communities, according to Aron Balok, head of the Pecos Valley Artesian Conservancy District, the valley’s largest far m water management agency. “It got pretty close to my house,” Balok said of the arroyo flood flows, “and I still didn’t say I wished it would stop.” Elephant Butte, the Rio Grande’s largest water storage reservoir, gained more than 50,000 acre feet of water in the stor m. The reservoir holds 2 million acre feet of water and rose from 4.4 percent to 5.9 percent full. The problem on the Rio Grande, according to New

Mexico State University hydrologist Phil King, is that a summer rainstorm, even one as large as this one, cannot begin to make up for the shortfall caused by years of low winter snowpack. “Monsoons don’t get us out of drought,” King said. “We get a few tens of thousands of acre-feet from a good monsoon, but over a million from a good spring runoff season.” No statewide figures were available at the end of last week, but some counties had preliminary tallies linked to flood damage and severe weather. In San Miguel County, for example, the figure was

between $6 million and $7 million. That doesn’t include the city of Las Vegas, which had infrastructure and water treatment facilities damaged. In Eddy County, Emergency Manager Joel Arnwine said damage to road and other public facilities there were estimated at up to $1.8 million. For Cibola County, the figure was about $1 million, and in Los Alamos, officials estimated $5 million in damage with millions more at Los Alamos National Laboratory. The U.S. Department of Transportation estimated $9 million to the state’s roads and bridges.

Fishing for good news in swollen rivers A4 Tuesday, September 24, 2013

My neighbors, who like to fish in Bluewater Lake, have found it harder and harder to get their boat in the diminishing water. It’s a familiar complaint around the state, as the drought draws lake and reservoir edges farther away from boat ramps. With record breaking rain in recent weeks — more three times the average over much of the state — recreation managers suddenly had the opposite problem. Lake levels at Bluewater, in wester n New Mexico, rose 6 feet, according to the state Department of Game and Fish. Cochiti Reservoir was up 13 feet; Conchas Lake, 5 feet; Caballo Lake, 6 feet. Ute Lake and Navajo Lake also have ample water. In many areas, boat ramps reopened. The winner may be Sumner Lake, where the water level rose about 23 feet within a few days and the east side boat dock had to be moved 14 times. At this





writing Brantley Lake State Park was closed to boating and swimming because of safety concerns related to heavy rains and runoff. In fact, the four main Pecos reservoirs — Santa Rosa, Sumner, Brantley and Avalon — zoomed from 11 percent to 92 percent of capacity, according to news reports. Irrigators are overjoyed, although a number of systems required repairs to levees, canals and acequias. Some irrigation districts, especially in southeastern New Mexico, have enough water for next year. That sound

you hear is a big sigh of relief. Then there’s Elephant Butte. The state’s biggest reservoir went from 60,507 acre-feet in July, to 93,327 on Sept. 11, to 139,976 on Sept. 19, and is still pretty empty, at about 6 percent of capacity, and many of its boat ramps are still closed because of low water. How is this possible? The Middle Rio Grande Conservancy District explained to its members: “We still do not have any water in storage. The rain fell mostly in places where it entered the river directly without passing through storage reservoirs.

a little luck, it can squeak to the end of the irrigation season. The bigger picture is, while this big storm helped, it didn’t make up for all the storms we didn’t get. So the joy, like the rain, isn’t equally distributed. And even though the rains were so bountiful they became disasters over large areas, it doesn’t change the overall picture, experts say. You know which picture: climate change, three years of severe drought, water demand that exceeds supply, water rights that exceed real water, regional water compacts written during very different times, and the tug-of-war between various interests. All water discussions point out that agriculture represents the lion’s share of use, and the implication is that thirsty cities and industry will buy up agricultural water, leading to disappearing farms and ranches.

I’m not sure it’s that gloomy. When my son worked for the State Engineer’s Office, he said that every week brought elderly people into the office who wanted to sell their water rights. They could no longer manage, and their kids weren’t interested in taking over. What we might see is the sidelining of marginal operations; determined farmers and ranchers will soldier on. If you’re a believer in market forces, the market will move water and money where they need to be. If you’re not a believer, the market will still move water and money, and the state could use a restraining hand. Either way, the state engineer could use a bigger budget and more muscle to ride herd on the process. The storm didn’t change our underlying problems, but it bought some time. © New Mexico News Services 2013

Cancer treatment: American crisis?

The American Cancer Society estimates there will be 1,660,290 new cases of cancer in the United States this year, and that 580,350 people will die from the disease. More than three-fourths of those cases will be diagnosed in people age 55 and older, and it’s feared that number and the number of overall cases and deaths will continue to increase as the population ages, by as much as 45 percent by 2030. It’s why a panel of medical experts commissioned by the Institute of Medicine to study the quality of cancer care in the U.S. spoke of “a system in crisis” when it delivered its report last week. Changing that, according to the report, will require a buy-in not just from patients and their families and medical professionals, but from researchers and scientists, insurers and even government agencies. The problem is, the “prescriptions” involved aren’t going to be easily dispensed, and might not go down easily when they are. For example, the panel said cancer patients need to be better educated about the realities of their conditions and their treatment options, which isn’t a bad idea. It said steps should be taken to ensure such information is clearly and understandably disseminated. At the same time, however, it spoke of the constant innovations and advances being made in cancer research and treatment, to the point where some oncologists are having trouble digesting it all. The panel said there should be efforts to help doctors keep up, while conceding they probably would be futile. So you have a situation where patients, already in an emotional uproar after hearing the word “cancer,” are expected to ask detailed, valid questions about their illnesses and treatment plans of a “health team” who likely will never have all the answers, and to change providers if they don’t get the right answers on things like life expectancies, the likelihood of cures, which medications work best against certain tumors, side effects and the price tag for everything. We think that might be too much to expect. The report also spoke of how most cancer patients who are incurably ill still think the treatments they are receiving will cure them. We know people often hear what they want to hear, and the inference seems to be that doctors should deliver a dose of reality and change patients’ expectations when needed, to keep them from going through costly and ultimately futile treatments. However, we also know how powerful and valuable hope can be, and wince a bit at the idea of it being dashed as a matter of policy, even with good intentions and to fix a legitimate crisis. We’re not criticizing the panel’s report or its suggestions. We’re just reinforcing its basic conclusion: There’s no easy solution here. Getting the buy-in from everyone is a good starting point. Guest Editorial The New Bern Sun Journal DEAR DOCTOR K: You’ve mentioned biofeedback as a treatment option for several conditions, but I still don’t understand what it is. Could you explain? DEAR READER: Biofeedback is a technique that helps you monitor and control your body’s responses. By learning to control certain functions, you can improve your medical condition, relieve chronic pain, reduce stress, or improve your physical or mental performance. During biofeedback training, a therapist attaches sensors to your body. The type and placement of sensors varies according to what is being measured. Sensors can detect changes in everything from your heart rate, skin temperature or muscle tension to

Same sex marriage is about civil rights GARY K. KING NEW MEXICO ATTORNEY GENERAL

The issue of same sex marriage has enveloped New Mexicans in recent weeks. Clearly, there are cultural, religious, political and legal concerns that deserve consideration in any discussion of the issue. However, as attorney general for the state of New Mexico, the legal aspects of this important issue are front and center for me. The extremely knowledgeable and capable staff attorneys in my office, who have been diligently researching applicable law on the subject,

also recognize that same sex marriage is an issue that affects the social fabric of our society. Because the issue is that important, I intend to proceed deliberately and as swiftly as possible to help move it through the legal process toward resolution. I thought it would helpful to give New Mexicans some perspective on what the Attorney General’s Office is doing to address the same sex marriage issue. Going back to the beginning of 2011, I was asked by New Mexico state Rep. Al Park to provide a legal opinion as to whether same-sex marriages

It can help you relax them before you experience pain, or it can help you learn to relax muscles that are already in pain. Or say you are learning to control your breathing when you are in pain. A balloon on the screen of the biofeedback machine may represent your breathing rate. You can lear n to inflate and deflate the balloon at the target rate.

A comprehensive legal analysis by my of fice concluded that valid same-sex marriages performed in other states are entitled to full faith and credit and should be valid in New Mexico. More recently, in July of this year, the New Mexico Supreme Court asked me to weigh in on the legal issues involving same sex marriage. Again, our exhaustive legal analysis concluded that (1) New Mexico’s guarantee of equal protection requires that same-sex couples be allowed to marry the same way oppo-

In the same response I also requested that, should the court consider the merits of the constitutional argument raised by proponents of same sex marriage, it issue an opinion declaring New Mexico’s prohibition on same-sex marriage to be unconstitutional

While Strike is not the flashiest detective and his exploits are from a high stakes thrill ride, readers will still find it hard to put the book down. Rowling’s first novel for adults is “The Casual Vacancy.” Pagford is, seemingly, an English idyll, with a cobbled market square and an ancient abbey, but what lies behind the pretty facade is a town at war.

The empty seat, a casual vacancy, left by Barry on the parish council soon becomes the catalyst for the biggest war the town has yet seen. J.K.

In 1892, the Alfalfa Palace, an architectural phenomenon constructed of bales of alfalfa and resembling a castle complete with battlements, was the home of Roswell’s first fair. The palace provided a place for local residents to show off their products raised in the Pecos Valley. Covered pens were adjacent to the palace and housed the livestock. Although there was a lapse during World War I, the fair continued in 1922 as the Chaves County Cotton Carnival and 91 years later, the Eastern New Mexico State Fair continues to exhibit farm and ranch livestock, agricultural products and various arts and crafts.

Trove of Mich. folk music unearthed in archive DETROIT (AP) — Detroit is famous for its music, from the Motown hits of the 1960s to the cutting-edge punk of Iggy Pop to the rap of Eminem. Little known, though, is that Michigan was also fertile ground for folk music, brought to the region by immigrants in the early 20th century and played in the logging camps, mines and factory towns where they worked. Legendary folklorist Alan Lomax discovered the music in 1938 when he visited the Midwest on his famous 10-year cross-country trek to document American folk music for the Library of Congress. A trove of his Michigan recordings is now being publicly released for the first time by the library, coinciding with the 75th anniversary of Lomax’s trip. The release is causing a stir among folk music fanciers and history buffs. “It was a fantastic field trip — hardly anything has been published from it,” said Todd Harvey, the Lomax collection’s curator at the library in Washington. The Michigan batch contains about 900 tracks and represents a dozen ethnicities. Lomax, son of famous musicologist John A. Lomax, spent three months in Michigan on his research, which also took him through Appalachia and the deep South. He drove through rural communities and recorded the

work songs and folk tunes he heard on a large suitcase-sized disc recorder powered by his car’s battery. The trip was supposed to cover much of the Upper Midwest, but he found so much in Michigan that he made only a few recordings elsewhere in the region. The collection includes acoustic blues from southern transplants, including Sampson Pittman and one-time Robert Johnson collaborator Calvin Frazier; a lumberjack ballad called “Michigan-I-O” sung solo by an old logger named Lester Wells; and a similar lament about life deep in the copper mines of the Upper Peninsula called “31st Level Blues,” performed by the Floriani family, who were of Croatian descent. The 250 disc recordings of about 125 performers, along with eight reels of film footage and photographs, reflect the rich mixture of cultures in Depression-era Michigan, where immigrants fleeing poverty and persecution in Europe and the South came seeking jobs. Natives of French-speaking Canada, Finland, Italy, Croatia, Germany, Poland, Ireland and Hungary perform the songs, which represent 10 languages.

Peyton, Broncos roll Raiders, now 3-0 Tuesday, September 24, 2013 Phone: 575-622-7710, ext. 304


Roswell Daily Record

DENVER (AP) — Peyton Manning slapped his hands together five, six, seven times and barked out the signals. A few seconds later, Wes Welker was all alone, cradling the quarterback’s latest touchdown pass. All part of another impeccably crafted victory for Manning and the Denver Broncos (3-0), who rolled over the Oakland Raiders 37-21 Monday night. Denver’s 127 points lead the league and are 31 more than second-place Green Bay. It was Denver’s 14th straight regular -season win, tying the franchise record set in 1998 when the Broncos won their second Super Bowl. Manning went 32 for 37 for 374 yards and put his name in the record books a few more times while outwitting the overmatched Raiders (1-2). “You see flashes of good things,” Manning said. “When we’re executing and not making mistakes, we can go the distance. We can go 80 yards, take advantage of a short field.” Manning’s 12 touchdown passes are one more than Tom Brady’s old record for the first three games, set in 2011. Manning still has yet to throw an

interception, which matches a record held by Michael Vick, who also threw 12 touchdowns before his first pick in 2010. “We get to play with one of the greatest quarterbacks and football players to ever play the game,” said tight end Julius Thomas, who caught one of the touchdowns. “He’s great. There’s no other way to cut it up or slice it.” His first touchdown, a 2-yard pass to Eric Decker (eight catches, 133 yards), came after a subtle play-action fake that froze the defense and left Decker uncovered in the back of the end zone. Manning’s targets for the next two touchdowns — Welker and Thomas — didn’t have defenders within three steps of them when they caught the passes. Wide open. A sure sign that Manning had diagnosed the defense he was looking at well before the snap and knew exactly where he wanted to go with the ball. “You see what he can do. I don’t even know too many people who can do that in Madden,” running back Ronnie Hillman said, referring to the popular video game. “It’s pretty cool to have a quarterback like that.”

Week 4: Lake Arthur’s claim PREP FOOTBALL


For both Lake Arthur and Hondo Valley, Sept. 20 had been circled on the calendar long before the 2013 football season had begun. It was circled for good reason — it would probably decide the No. 1 seed in the playoffs and likely provide a preview of the state championship game. Lake Arthur staked its claim to the No. 1 seed and installed itself as the prohibitive favorite to win the 2013 Class 6Man state title during that meeting on Friday. The Panthers controlled the game throughout and won comfortably. They are the favorites to win the classification this year and, save a shocking turn of events, nothing should stop them from winning a third straight title. Lawrence Foster Photo

Henrik Stenson kisses the trophy as the FedEx Cup sits nearby after winning the Tour Championship and securing the FedEx Cup, Sunday.

Stenson wins Cup

ATLANTA (AP) — At this stage in his career, Henrik Stenson never expects anything to come easily. He already had poured in hours upon hours of work to even get to this stage — a four-shot lead going into the last day of the Tour Championship, giving him a clear shot at the FedEx Cup and the biggest payoff in golf. He was reminded what was at stake when he saw the two trophies displayed on the first tee at East Lake. “I knew it was a lot of things on the line,” he said. He figured his best move

was to play his best golf, and he delivered a 2-under 68 on Sunday to claim both trophies. With a birdie on the 15th hole that thwarted a late charge by 20-year-old Jordan Spieth, followed by three pars from the sand, Stenson wound up with a three-shot victory over Spieth and Steve Stricker in the Tour Championship. Equally important, if not more, he captured the FedEx Cup and its $10 million bonus. “The main thing is to

Cowboys steamroll Rams, control NFC East

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Before DeMarco Murray ran through St. Louis just like he did when he set a franchise record two years ago, the Dallas defense stopped the Rams twice. The Cowboys had to get a pair of three-and-outs because Dwayne Harris muffed the game’s first punt, but that just gave Dallas a chance to get the first of six sacks on Sam Bradford. Murray ran for 175 yards and a touchdown, Tony Romo threw for

three scores and the Cowboys held the Rams to 18 yards in the first half of a 31-7 victory Sunday. “I thought our defense just came and responded the right way,” Dallas coach Jason Garrett said. “I thought we played with the right kind of spirit and demeanor and we showed some relentless nature to our team.” Bradford certainly felt it. He hadn’t been sacked in four games going back to last season — the longest sack-free streak for the Rams in 40 years. He went down four times in the first half and was hit another eight times in the game. “They were running a lot of games with their down linemen,” said Bradford, who was 29 of 48 for 240 yards while his running game generated just 35 yards. “A couple of blitzes got us, too. Those guys played well.” Murray went 14 yards on his first carry, had a 36-yarder to start the next scoring drive and finished the

first half with 96 yards. He went 41 yards on the second play of the third quarter to get his first 100-yard game in more than a year and set up a touchdown for a 24-0 lead. The third-year back had a lot of room to run for a guy who torched the Rams for a Cowboys record of 253 yards in a 34-7 Dallas win his rookie season in 2011. “When you get a runner like that going, you can feed on him,” Garrett said. “He gets a little contagious for everybody. Everybody starts feeling it.” Here are five other things to know after the Cowboys improved to 2-0 at home for the first time since moving into their $1.2 billion stadium in 2009. 1.

ray’s career game against the Rams in 2011. His 24 attempts matched the fewest in a full game since then, and he had 210 yards and a 137.2 rating. He found Dez Bryant from 2 yards for the game’s first score and had 24yard touchdowns to rookie tight end Gavin Escobar and Harris in the second half. “You’ll have one or two games like this and you’ll have one slanted the other way and you

have to throw it more times than you want to,” Romo said. “It’s nice today to just give them the ball and just let those guys go.” 2. PLAYING FROM BEHIND: The Rams fell behind by three touchdowns for the second straight week. A week ago they ran out of time in a 31-24 loss to Atlanta. Although they never really had a chance against the Cowboys, there was a point after their only score that they had the ball near midfield down 24-7 early in the fourth. But Bradford threw behind Chris Givens on fourth down, and Dallas scored three


plays later. 3. WARE’S RECORD DAY: DeMarcus Ware had two of Dallas’ sacks to break Harvey Martin’s 30-year-old franchise record of 114. Former coach Bill Parcells and owner Jerry Jones used to have fun throwing around bets how many sacks 2005 first-round pick Ware would get. “I think of it every time I think of his number of sacks,” Jones said. “I can’t say that it is unexpected because of how hard he works, and his talent level, and his competitiveness.” 4. QUICK TURNAROUND: The

Roswell Daily Record Rams don’t have long to lament all the things that went wrong against the Cowboys. St. Louis hosts San Francisco on Thursday night, with the defending NFC champions also sitting at 1-2 after consecutive losses. The Rams had only 232 total yards and were 0 for 12 on third down until a 9-yard run on the game’s last play. “We didn’t do really, do anything well today,” coach Jeff Fisher said. “I did not see this coming. This is a defining moment for us right now. We’ve got to get past this and get ready for the

Iowa awarded 2017 Solheim Cup WEST DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — The LPGA’s biggest tournament is coming to Iowa. The LPGA announced Monday that the 2017 Solheim Cup will be held at the Des Moines Golf and Country Club. The biennial contest between teams of European and American golfers was held in Colorado last month with Europe winning 18-10. The Solheim Cup, which features 12 golfers on each team in a matchplay format, will be in Germany in 2015 before going to Iowa. LPGA commissioner Michael Whan said that Iowa’s history of supporting major golf events — most notably the 250,000 fans the course drew for the U.S. Senior Open Championship in 1999 — played a key role in its selection. “I believe in 2017, we’re going to blow the standard out of the water of what a Solheim Cup should be,” Whan said. “That’s going to come from a course. That’s going to come from a city. That’s going to come from a state. Most importantly, that’s going to come from a people that respect the game and respect the country.” The Solheim Cup will be arguably the most prestigious golf tournament ever held in central Iowa. In addition to the U.S. Senior Open Championship in 1999, Metro Des Moines has hosted a Champions Tour event, the Principal Charity Classic, since 2001. Though that tournament moved from Glen Oaks Country Club in

Local school students cheer as officials announce that the Solheim Cup will be held in the Des Moines, Iowa, in 2017, Monday.

West Des Moines to the Wakonda Club near downtown Des Moines this year, it remained among the more well-attended events on the senior tour. The PGA makes a yearly stop in Silvis, Ill., just across the Mississippi River, for the John Deere Classic — although that the field for that event is typically thin because it falls a week before the British Open. “We look forward to getting to know you much better, and we’re really excited about the fact that you’re coming back in 2017. I’m delighted that our state will be the home of the 2017 Solheim Cup,” Iowa governor Terry Branstad said. “Iowans are well-known for their generosity, their strong sense of community and their welcoming attitude.” Officials broke the news with all the American pomp and circum-

stance it could muster. Dozens of school children dressed up in red, white and blue — many with stars and stripes hats on their heads — and the few hundred people that showed up were all handed small American flags. Whan topped it off by tossing Solheim Cup hats to fans as they chanted “USA! USA!” The jingoistic theme had a very specific purpose. The LPGA is hoping that Iowans turn out in record numbers — and treat it more like a football game than a golf tournament. “I don’t really care what players are playing on the team. I don’t care what media shows up,” Whan said. “Just do us one favor. Do these players one favor. Throw away the ‘Quiet Please’ signs. Paint your face. Get crazy.”

Jason Witten led with five catches for 67 yards. Dez Bryant caught four for 38, and Murray had three for 28 — giving him 203 yards rushing and receiving. “I thought he threw the ball exactly where he needed to throw it, and I just thought he was really comfortable,” Garrett said of Romo.

Goddard got challenged for the second straight week on Friday. This time, though, the Rockets passed the challenge, beating Belen 149 despite some offensive struggles. Belen is probably a top-four team in the classification this year, so it’s not shocking to see the Eagles give Goddard a run for its money. The Belen-Los Lunas game could go a long way in determining the No. 1 seed in 4A this year. Both the Eagles and Tigers lost on Friday, but Belen actually leapfrogged Los Lunas in the MaxPreps state rankings into second. Goddard is No. 1 and Los Lunas is No. 3. The losses by Belen and Los Lunas, along with Farmington’s loss, ensured that no undefeated teams remain in the classification after four weeks. And while we’re on the subject of challenges, we have to talk about the team who challenged Goddard last week, Rio Rancho. The Rams apparently forgot that they needed to play a game on Friday

because, for all intents and purposes, they didn’t show up for their game against Las Cruces. The Bulldawgs steamrolled Rio Rancho, beating the Rams 42-6. So much for Rio Rancho’s claim that it was the best team in the state.


Gateway Christian’s biggest test of the year was supposed to come from Melrose this year. The Buffaloes are coopping — don’t get me started on that insanely stupid rule — with Clovis Christian, combining two tradition-rich programs into one 8-man team. Melrose blew out its first three opponents, blanking Alamo Navajo, Menaul and Mountainair by a combined 180-0 count. It looked like Gateway and Melrose were on a collision course for a battle that would determine the No. 1 seed. Until Foothill made a trip south and beat Melrose 13-12 on Friday, leaving Gateway and Carrizozo as the only two unbeatens in Class 8Man. And guess who makes another trip south this week to visit Gateway — the Foothill Falcons. 58. Thongchai Jaidee . . . . . . . .Tha 59. Martin Laird . . . . . . . . . . . . .Sco 60.

NFL roundup: Lions end drought in D.C., beat ’Skins Roswell Daily Record

The Detroit Lions knew nothing about success in Washington. Through 21 trips to the nation’s capital, they owned an 0-fer. Until Sunday. The Lions (2-1) ended a 21game road losing streak against the Redskins, the second longest in NFL history. Detroit’s last win away from home in the series came in 1935 against the Boston Redskins, two years before the franchise’s move to Washington. This one came as Matthew Stafford completed 25 of 42 passes for 385 yards with two touchdowns in a 27-20 triumph. Calvin Johnson and Nate Burleson both had 100 yards receiving for Detroit. “You never know how the cookie’s going to crumble, and it feels good that it crumbled our way this time,” Detroit cornerback Rashean Mathis said. “I wasn’t a part of the past, but I am part of the future, so it feels good to give the fans something to feel good about, and we can demolish a record, our streak, that was going on for years and years and years.” Another losing string was snapped by the Titans. Tennessee had fallen nine straight times to San Diego before Jake Locker connected with rookie Justin Hunter on a 34-yard touchdown pass with 15 seconds left for a 20-17 win. The last time the T itans beat the Chargers was 1992 when the team was still in Houston. “We needed a win like this,” said Tennessee coach Mike Munchak, who was with the

franchise when it was the Oilers and last beat San Diego. Also Sunday, it was Indianapolis 27, San Francisco 7; Seattle 45, Jacksonville 27; Miami 27, Atlanta 23; Cincinnati 34, Green Bay 30; Baltimore 30, Houston 9; New Orleans 31, Arizona 7; Cleveland 31, Minnesota 27; New England 23, Tampa Bay 3; Chicago 40, Pittsburgh 23; Carolina 38, the New York Giants 0; Dallas 31, St. Louis 7; and the New York Jets 27, Buffalo 20. Week 3 began when Kansas City defeated Philadelphia 2616 on Thursday night.

Lions 27, Redskins 20 Robert Griffin III and the defending NFC East champion Redskins fell to 0-3. Griffin completed 32 of 50 passes for 326 yards and had his fourth interception of the season, one shy of his 2012 total. The Redskins scored an of fensive touchdown for the first time this season. But they couldn’t do what every previous Washington team had done against Detroit. “The food isn’t going to taste that good tonight,” said cornerback DeAngelo Hall, who had a 17-yard TD on an interception. “Still trying to wrap my head around what we can do to get better.”

Titans 20, Chargers 17 At Nashville, Locker ended the slide by completing seven passes to six receivers for 94 yards on the winning drive. He finished with 299 yards passing and ran for 68 yards. The T itans (2-1) outgained San

block everything out and go play golf, which I was pretty good at in the long run,” Stenson said Sunday. The short run hasn’t been bad, either. No one has played better over the last three months. Stenson tied for third in the Scottish Open, and was runner -up a week later at the British Open. He was runner-up in the World Golf Championship at Firestone and finished third at the PGA Championship. And when the FedEx Cup playoffs began, the 37year -old Swede didn’t lose his

Diego 452-277 yards, with Nate Washington catching eight passes for 131 yards. Chris Johnson ran 19 times for 90 yards. San Diego (1-2) led most of the game despite having four starters out because of injuries and losing a fifth to an injured foot in the first half.

Colts 27, 49ers 7 At San Francisco, Andrew Luck beat college coach Jim Harbaugh. Trent Richardson scored a 1-yard touchdown on his first carry in his Colts debut after being acquired on Wednesday from the Browns. He was drafted two spots behind Luck at No. 3 last year. Ahmad Bradshaw added a 1-yard TD run in the final minutes, and Adam Vinatieri kicked two field goals for Indianapolis (2-1). It was Colin Kaepernick’s first home loss at Candlestick Park as a starter. San Francisco (1-2) struggled to establish a passing game with tight end Vernon Davis sidelined by a hamstring injury. Linebacker Aldon Smith will miss Thursday night’s game at St. Louis and perhaps sit out longer, according to 49ers CEO Jed York. Smith, who played Sunday, will seek treatment following his arrest Friday for suspicion of driving under the influence and marijuana possession. After the loss, Smith apologized and acknowledged he will get help, but didn’t field questions. Seahawks 45, Jaguars 17 At Seattle, Russell Wilson matched his career high with four touchdown passes, two

stride. He won the Deutsche Bank Championship to get the No. 2 seed, and then capped it off with the first wire-to-wire win (no ties) in the Tour Championship since Tom Watson in the first year of this 30-man showcase. “Hats off to him,” Stricker said. “He played great. He played great in the playoffs. He won two of these events. He deserves to be champion.” The PGA Tour is sending out ballots for the player of the year, with the result to be announced Friday. Stenson figures to be on the ballot with his two FedEx Cup playof f wins, and as FedEx Cup champion. It still might not be enough to

each to Sidney Rice and Zach Miller. The Seahawks improved to 3-0 for the first time since 2006, beginning a stretch of four straight games against the AFC South. Seattle came in as a 19-point favorite and never gave Jacksonville (0-3) a chance. The Seahawks forced Jacksonville into three turnovers. They sacked Chad Henne four times, and Maurice JonesDrew, playing with an injured ankle, was limited to 43 yards on 19 carries.

Dolphins 27, Falcons 23 R yan Tannehill’s 1-yard touchdown pass to rookie Dion Sims with 38 seconds left lifted the host Dolphins (3-0). The score capped a 13-play, 75-yard drive after Atlanta’s Matt Bryant missed a 35-yard field-goal attempt with 4:46 left. Jimmy Wilson intercepted Matt Ryan to seal the victory. Miami fell behind 10-0 and 20-10 and trailed much of the game. The injury-plagued Falcons, who were one play from the Super Bowl last season, fell to 1-2. Atlanta lost despite advantages of 24-16 in first downs, 377-285 in yards and 5-0 in sacks. Bengals 34, Packers 30 At Cincinnati, Terence Newman retur ned a fumble 58 yards for a touchdown with 3:47 left in a game of wild momentum swings set up by nonstop turnovers. Each team gave it away four times. Each team returned a fumble for a touchdown; M.D. Jennings ran one back for Green Bay (1-2). The Bengals (2-1) blew a 14-point lead, and

trump Tiger Woods and his five victories, or the two-win seasons of major champions Phil Mickelson (British Open) or Adam Scott (Masters). Spieth is a lock for rookie of the year. He started the season with no status on any tour, earned enough money to get his card for the 201314 season, won the John Deere Classic, shot 62 the last day of the Deutsche Bank Championship, made the Presidents Cup as a captain’s pick and closed with a 64 to put a brief scare into Stenson on the final day at East Lake. He wound up seventh in the FedEx Cup, the best ever for a rookie. Not bad for a 20-year-old Texan.

Tuesday, September 24, 2013

the Packers let a 16-point lead get away in the second half. The Bengals’ defense made the dif ference as Aaron Rodgers was 26 of 43 for 244 yards with a touchdown, but was sacked four times and threw two interceptions.

Ravens 30, Texans 9 At Baltimore, Daryl Smith had a 37-yard interception return for a TD, Tandon Doss took a punt 82 yards for another score, and the Ravens (2-1) won despite playing without Ray Rice for the first time since 2008. The three-time Pro Bowl running back was replaced by Bernard Pierce, who ran for 65 yards and a touchdown. Houston (2-1) played much of the second half without star wide receiver Andre Johnson, who had a bruised shin.

Saints 31, Cardinals 7 At New Orleans, Drew Brees passed for three scores and ran for another. He had two TD strikes to tight end Jimmy Graham and the other to Robert Meachem. Brees was intercepted once by New Orleans native and former LSU star Tyrann Mathieu. The Saints (3-0) hadn’t opened a season with three straight victories since 2009, when they won the franchise’s only Super Bowl. They produced four sacks and two interceptions of Carson Palmer. Arizona (1-2) had no answer for the 6-foot-7 Graham, who caught nine passes for 134 yards.

Browns 31, Vikings 27 At Minneapolis, tight end Jordan Cameron caught three touchdown passes, including the go-ahead grab with 51 seconds left. Third-stringer Brian Hoyer threw for three scores for the Browns (1-2), the latest team to torch Minnesota’s depleted secondary. He overcame three interceptions to throw for 321 yards, going 30 for 54. Josh Gordon had 10 catches for 146 yards and a touchdown in his season debut. After trading young star running back Trent Richardson and elevating Hoyer for his second career start, the Browns looked finished. But they held Adrian Peterson to 88 yards and one score on 25 rushes, used a fake punt and a fake field goal in the first half to build their lead over the Vikings (0-3).

Patriots 23, Buccaneers 3 Tom Brady threw two touchdown passes to Kenbrell Thompkins to lead host New England (3-0), which has yielded only 34 points this season. The Patriots held Doug Martin, who rushed for 144 yards a week earlier, to 88 yards on 20 carries. Thompkins, an undrafted free agent, scored on plays of 16 and 5 yards. Josh Freeman threw an interception to former Bucs cornerback Aqib Talib as the Bucs fell to 0-3.

Bears 40, Steelers 23 At Pittsburgh, Chicago’s defense forced five turnovers and scored twice. Major Wright returned an interception 38 yards for a touchdown in the second quarter, and Julius Peppers picked up Ben Roethlisberger’s fumble and raced 42 yards for a score in the fourth quarter for the Bears (3-0). Roethlisberger completed 26 of 41 passes for 406 yards, and threw two touchdowns to Antonio Brown, but the Steelers fell to 0-3 for the first time since 2000.

Panthers 38, Giants 0 At Charlotte, Cam Newton threw three touchdown passes and ran for another, and Carolina sacked Eli Manning seven times. It was as Tom Coughlin’s worst defeat as coach of the Giants (0-3), and the largest margin of victory for Carolina (1-2). Newton had 223 yards passing and threw two touchdown passes to Brandon LaFell and one to Ted Ginn Jr. He ran for 45 yards and his first TD of the season.

Jets 27, Bills 20 Geno Smith threw two touchdown passes, including a go-ahead 69-yarder to Santonio Holmes in the fourth quarter in a sloppy game. The Jets (2-1) overcame a team-record 20 penalties for 168 yards. Smith slightly outplayed EJ Manuel in a matchup of the first two quarterbacks selected in the NFL draft in April. Bilal Powell ran for a career -high 149 yards for the Jets. Buffalo is 1-2.


DEAR ABBY: I’m a 23-year-old woman who still lives at home. I have been working for the last five years and have saved enough to live comfortably on my own. Unfortunately, my parents have forbidden me to do it because they think I’m being manipulated into it by my boyfriend, that I just want to “do whatever I want” and be out until late (although I’m rarely up past 9 p.m. and they know it), and because I “can’t stand them” anymore. I have no privacy! My mail is opened “mistakenly” and my calls

are listened in on even when I politely — and sometimes angrily — ask them not to. They have even imposed a rule that I must show them my bank balance weekly. They have told me I will not leave the house without being married first. I would like to live on my own before I actually marry so I can experience what it’s like. This is something I have always wanted to do. If I do move out, they say I’ll “bring shame and embarrassment” to the family. There seems to be a double standard going on here because my older brother has his girlfriend sleep over. How can I accommodate my parents without being disowned? FEELING HELPLESS IN ILLINOIS DEAR FEELING HELPLESS: Your parents have chosen to ignore that you are an adult, selfsupporting and entitled to make your own choices. They may be well-meaning, but they are extremely heavy-handed. Their hyper-vigilance — opening your


mail, eavesdropping on your phone calls and insisting on checking your bank balance weekly — is over the top. They would like you to be “safely” married before you leave their protection. Is their problem that they disapprove of your boyfriend? If you get a place of your own, do you plan on moving him in? If that’s not the case, there is no reason why your living independently might shame or embarrass them. Not knowing your parents, I can’t judge whether their threat to disown you is serious or not. However, if it is, realize it’s a form of blackmail, and you will have to decide which is more important — your freedom or their support.

I understand your desire to give encouragement to someone who has lost her loved ones, but don’t you know that many streetlights are light-activated so that after headlights hit them in just the right way they will turn off? After you pass under them, it becomes dark enough again and they will turn back on within a few minutes. While I’m sure that given the opportunity this girl’s parents would watch over her, the streetlights she described have nothing to do with the paranormal but have a scientific and logical explanation. SOMEONE’S WATCHING IN GUILFORD, MO.

DEAR ABBY: “Lights Out in Federal Way, Wash.” (Aug. 13) asked if it was a “sign” that her deceased parents were watching over her when streetlights would go out as she drove under them on her way home.

DEAR WATCHING: While many readers shared similar experiences, the majority had a logical explanation as you did. However, I still feel that if what she’s experiencing brings her comfort, the important thing is what she chooses to believe.

Dear Heloise: I lose plant markers or they blow away. I can’t always tell the difference between the herbs just by looking. My daughter thought it’d be cute for all the pots to be the same, so we painted them with black chalkboard paint. We then used chalk to label each pot with the plant name and other important information. Luckily, you can’t lose the marker if it IS the pot! Caroline D. in Iowa Dear Heloise: I have French doors that separate my den from the rest of the house. The other day, I tried to close the doors to keep the dogs in the den for a while, but the doors wouldn’t stay completely closed. I grabbed a rubber band and wrapped it around both doorknobs. This kept the doors closed tightly enough that the dogs were contained. K.E. in Mississippi

Glad it worked for you. Some dogs and many cats can figure out how to open and close doors, so keep an eye on them. Heloise

BP renews bid to suspend settlement payments Roswell Daily Record

ORLEANS (AP) — BP on Monday renewed its request for a federal judge to temporarily suspend settlement payments to Gulf Coast residents and businesses, citing a scathing report on alleged misconduct within the court-supervised program. In a court filing, BP attorneys said the report issued earlier this month by former FBI Director Louis Freeh shows the settlement program is plagued by problems that need to be fixed. U.S. District Judge Carl Barbier already has rejected two previous requests by BP to suspend

settlement payments, but both rulings preceded Freeh’s Sept. 6 report. Freeh concluded that top members of claims administrator Patrick Juneau’s staff engaged in conduct that was improper, unethical and possibly criminal, but said he didn’t see a need to shut down settlement payments. BP lawyers questioned whether Barbier would have authorized Juneau to begin processing and paying claims more than a year ago if he had known the settlement program would be “riven by conflicts of interest,” lacked ade-

quate anti-fraud controls and operated in a “grossly inefficient and over-costly manner.” “While BP does not presume to know for certain, it submits that the answer most likely would have been an emphatic ‘no.’ Instead, the Settlement Program would have been instructed to fix its problems first, before being allowed to open its doors to the claims of class members,” company lawyers wrote. On Aug. 28, Barbier rejected BP’s second request to suspend all payments to businesses and residents who claim the compa-

The judge said an inter nal probe by Juneau’s office didn’t find credible evidence of fraud involving employees of the settlement program’s Mobile, Ala., claims center. Barbier also ruled that BP’s separate complaints about alleged conflicts of interest inside the settlement program didn’t warrant a halt in the claims process. Freeh’s report said two private attorneys — Glen Lerner and Jon Andry — used Lionel Sutton, a lawyer on Juneau’s staf f, to

Microsoft unveils new Surface, fixes shortcomings NEW YORK (AP) — Microsoft refreshed its Surface tablet computers Monday, giving them longer battery life and better comfort on laps as the software giant continues its transformation into a devices and services company. The company said it tried to address many shortcomings of the firstgeneration Surface models, sales of which have been slow. Microsoft needs to boost its tablet business to make up for sales declines in traditional desktop and laptop computers. The new models come with a better built-in kickstand so they can rest more firmly on users’ laps while they sit on the couch. Microsoft is also making a docking station and a wireless mouse for business customers who need the mobility of tablets but also desire the traditional ways of using computers while in the office. “We’ve definitely gotten a year smarter,” Brian Hall, general manager of sales and marketing for Surface, said in an interview. The redesigned Surface tablets come at a time of transition for Microsoft. Earlier this month, Microsoft struck a deal to acquire Nokia’s phone and services business for $7.2 billion. The company is also searching for a new CEO to replace Steven A. Ballmer, who announced last month that he plans to retire within the next year.

NEW YORK (AP) — The price of oil closed at a six-week low as the catalysts that drove it above $110 earlier this month lost strength. Meanwhile, pump prices in the U.S. are the lowest since early July, and experts say they’re likely headed lower. Benchmark oil for November delivery fell $1.16, or 1.1 percent, to close at $103.59 on the New York Mercantile Exchange. Oil has dropped 6.3 percent since closing at a two-year high of $110.53 on Sept. 6. Analysts said the apparent progress being made in the elimination of Syria’s chemical weapons, a seeming thaw in relations between Iran and Western powers and the return to markets of crude from Libya and South Sudan were weighing on oil prices. In the U.S., the average price for a gallon of gasoline fell over the weekend to $3.47. That’s the lowest level since July 8, and is 34 cents cheaper than at this time last year. The price-watching site expects the price of gas to fall further as refineries produce ample amounts of fuel while demand remains about where it was a year ago. Brent crude, the benchmark for international crudes used by many U.S. refineries, dropped $1.06 to $108.16 a barrel on the ICE Futures exchange in London.

New York seeks to kill phony online reviews

Vincent Nguyen, editor in chief of SlashGear, wears Google Glass while covering the introduction of the Microsoft Surface 2, Monday in New York. Microsoft is trying hard to succeed in tablets because personal computer sales are falling. The Surface Pro 2 is targeted at professionals who want the full power of a laptop in a tablet-style device. With a starting price of $899, the Pro 2 uses a full version of the upcoming Windows 8.1, meaning it can run any program written for Windows desktops and laptops. The Pro 2 promises 75 percent more battery life than the debut Pro model, which came out in February. The improvement comes partly from the use of Intel’s Haswell chip, which uses less energy. There’s also an optional Power Cover accessory that

extends battery life even further. A cheaper model, Surface 2, offers a 25 percent improvement in battery life, which means it can get up to 10 hours of use. It also has a better screen compared with last October’s Surface RT. It uses Windows RT 8.1, meaning it can run only apps specifically designed for it. Microsoft said it now has 100,000 apps, or 10 times what was available last year. Like other RT tablets, Microsoft is including a version of its Office software for free with the Surface 2. But now, the package will have the Outlook email and calendar pro-

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — A perfect hotel? An amazing restaurant? Teeth whitener that leads to romance? Such things may only truly exist in online reviews, and New York’s attorney general says many of them are fakes, just as more consumers searching for guidance are starting to bite. Attorney General Eric Schneiderman is trying to dismantle what he calls a system of creating false online reviews for products and services. On Monday he announced that he has settled cases with 19 com-



panies that included $350,000 in penalties. The fake plaudits are sometimes called “astroturfing,” a reference to the synthetic grass used on sports fields. “Consumers rely on reviews from their peers to make daily purchasing decisions on anything from food and clothing to recreation and sightseeing,” Schneiderman said. “This investigation into largescale, intentional deceit across the Internet tells us that we should approach online reviews with caution.”
