President Barack Obama addresses the United Nations General Assembly, Tuesday.

NEW YORK (AP) — It’s a campaign believed to be unprecedented in its size and aggressiveness: New York City is dispensing the morning-after pill to girls as young as 14 at more than 50 public high schools, sometimes even before they have had sex. The effort to combat teen pregnancy in the nation’s largest city contrasts sharply with the views of politicians and school systems in more conservative parts of the country. Valerie Huber, president of the National Abstinence Education Association in Washington, calls it “a terrible case once again of bigotry of low expectations” — presuming that teen girls will have sex anyway, and effectively endorsing that. But some doctors say more schools should follow

VANDALIA, Ohio (AP) — Ohio has emerged as the presidential race’s undisputed focus. Barack Obama and Mitt Romney are making multiple stops this week alone in a state that’s trending toward the president, endangering Romney’s White House hopes. The popularity of Obama’s auto industry bailout and a better -than-average local economy are undermining Romney’s call for Ohioans to return to their GOP-leaning ways, which were crucial to George W. Bush’s two elections. Ohio has 18 electoral votes, seventh most in the nation, and no Republican has won the White House without carrying it. Romney is scrambling to reverse the polls that show Obama ahead. On Tuesday, he made the first of his four planned Ohio stops this week, joining his running mate, Rep. Paul Ryan, for a rally near Dayton. On See OHIO, Page A3

UNITED NATIONS (AP) — President Barack Obama told world leaders Tuesday that attacks on U.S. citizens in Libya “were attacks on America,” and he called on them to join in confronting the root causes of the rage across the Muslim world. “I do believe that it is the obligation of all leaders, in all countries, to speak out forcefully against violence and extremism,” Obama said in a speech to the annual gathering of the United Nations General Assembly. Obama also condemned the anti-Muslim video that helped spark the recent attacks, calling it “cruel and disgusting.” But he strongly defended the U.S. Constitution’s protection of the freedom of expression, “even views that we profoundly disagree with.” With U.S. campaign politics shadowing every word, Obama also warned that time to peacefully curb the Iranian nuclear crisis is running out.

Report: Premium hikes for top Medicare drug plans

WASHINGTON (AP) — Millions of seniors enrolled in some of the most popular Medicare prescription drug plans face doubledigit premium hikes next year if they don’t shop for a better deal, says a private firm that analyzes the highly competitive market. Seven of the top 10 prescription plans are raising their premiums by 11 percent to 23 percent, according to a report this week by Avalere Health. It’s a reality check on a stream of upbeat Medicare announcements from the Obama administration, all against the backdrop of a hard-fought election. In


Teacher shortage HOBBS (AP) — A housing crisis and a booming oil industry in Hobbs are being blamed for a teacher shortage at the city’s schools. KRQE-TV reports that district officials say Hobbs Municipal Schools needs to fill 18 positions immediately. The superintendent says the shortage is a result of some teachers quitting to go work for the oil industry, which pays more. The school chief says some teachers also have not been able to find af fordable housing in the area. Officials say with the oil

based on bid documents that the plans submitted to Medicare. The report found premium increases for all top 10 prescription drug plans, known as PDPs. However, the most popular plan — AARP MedicareRx Preferred — is only going up 57 cents per month nationally, to $40.42 from the current $39.85. President Barack Obama’s health care law does not appear to be the cause of the increases. Indeed, the law is improving the prescription benefit by gradually closing a coverage gap called the “doughnut hole,” which catches people with high drug costs. Instead, the price hikes appear to be driven by market dynamics, and some insurers are introducing new low-premium options to gain a competitive advantage on plans that are raising their prices. The seven plans with double-digit premium increases were: the Humana Walmart-Preferred Rx Plan (23 percent); First Health Part D Premier (18 percent); First Health Part D Value Plus

(17 percent); Cigna Medicare Rx Plan One (15 percent); Express Scripts Medicare-Value (13 percent); the HealthSpring Prescription Drug Plan (12 percent); and Humana Enhanced (11 percent). Another two plans in the top 10 also had singledigit increases. They were the SilverScript Basic (8 percent) and WellCare Classic (3 percent). On the plus side for consumers, a major new lowcost plan entered the market. Premiums for the AARP MedicareRx Saver Plus Plan will average $15 a month nationally, although it won’t be available everywhere. That’s $3.50 less than the current low-cost leader, the Humana Walmart plan, whose premiums are rising to $18.50. The new AARP plan is run by UnitedHealth Group Inc., the nation’s largest health insurance company. United pays AARP for the right to use its name on a range of Medicare insurance products, a successful business strategy that has proven lucrative for both partners. When Humana

But with Wilson and GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney both trailing in the state, the Republican Party nationally has been shifting resources away from New Mexico to more competitive states.

Legislative expenses SANTA FE (AP) — A New Mexico legislative leadership group has ordered a review of travel payments to lawmakers to determine whether there are doubledipping problems. The issue arose Tuesday in response to news reports the Attor ney General’s of fice is investigating whether Rep. Ray Begaye, D-Shiprock, filed false reimbursement vouchers for a National Conference of State Legislatures meeting in Arizona last year. KOB-TV has reported Campaign Committee recently pulled $3 million in television advertising it had reserved for Wilson. And last week, the Republican National Committee transferred three key staffers from its Mitt Romney campaign efforts to Colorado and Nevada.

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce has stepped in to fill some of the void, basically doubling its spending on Wilson last week by putting $455,000 into new ads for her.

and Walmart teamed up to offer their low-cost plan in 2011, United felt the competition. “There is a real focus on the premium in this market,” Mendelson said. “If a plan fields an offering with a low premium, it knows it can capture a significant number of customers.” Medicare spokesman Brian Cook did not dispute the Avalere estimates. “We continue to encourage seniors to shop around and find the plan that works best for them,” he said. Medicare’s open enrollment season starts Oct. 15, and beneficiaries have a wide variety of choices of taxpayer -subsidized private prescription plans. Seniors and family members can use the online Medicare Plan Finder to input individual prescription lists and find plans in their area that cover them. About 90 percent of Medicare’s nearly 50 million beneficiaries have some form of drug coverage, with more than 17 million enrolled in private plans through the prescription drug program. Of those, 14 million are in the

Uranium mining CHURCH ROCK (AP) — Officials with the Nuclear Regulatory Commission are conducting an environmental review of a proposed uranium project in western New Mexico. Commission staff began their three-day visit Tuesday.

Hydro Resources plans to construct well fields and a uranium recovery plant. The solution mining process involves injecting water into the ground and

top 10 plans.

The Avalare numbers, released Monday, do have one silver lining for the Obama administration. When the projections are tweaked to account for seniors switching to lowercost coverage, premiums for 2013 are likely to remain steady. Separately, the administration recently announced that average premiums for Medicare Advantage insurance plans will barely inch up next year on average, while enrollment in the private medical plans will continue to rise. Many Medicare Advantage plans also combine prescription drug coverage in one package deal. But the biggest premium announcement is yet to come.

Virtually all seniors pay the Part B premium for outpatient care, including those with traditional Medicare as well as those in private plans. Currently $99.90 a month, the Part B premium is expected to rise by about $7 for 2013, according to the government’s own projections.

But he added that freedom of expression should be exercised with consideration to morality and public order. mentioned not the major car-making state of Michigan but Ohio, which focuses more on car parts. “One in eight jobs in Ohio is dependent on the auto industry,” Obama said. Four new polls underscore Romney’s serious problems in Ohio. Surveys by NBC and Fox News found Obama ahead by 7 percentage points. A poll by a group of Ohio newspapers showed him leading by 5. And a Washington Post poll released Tuesday found the president leading Romney by 8 points. All of Obama’s leads were outside the polls’ margins of error. One problem for Romney is that Ohio’s 7.2 percent unemployment rate is below the national average, as the Republican cent effective at preventing pregnancy if taken within 72 hours after unprotected sex.

Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney has accused Obama of not being tough enough on Iran and of turning his back on Israel and other allies in the Middle East. Romney also has said he doesn’t have much faith in peace prospects between Israelis and Palestinians. Obama told the U.N.: “Among Israelis and Palestinians, the future must not belong to those who tur n their backs on the prospect of peace.” Romney in separate remarks to a global confer-

Obama mentioned the slain U.S. ambassador, Christopher Stevens, several times in his address. Unlike Romney, Obama has not specifically called the attacks in Libya and other U.S. missions terrorism. Obama said that the United States “will be

gover nor, John Kasich, often reminds residents. House Speaker John Boehner, from the Cincinnati area, told reporters last week in Washington: “One of the things that probably works against Romney in Ohio is the fact that Gov. Kasich has done such a good job of fixing government regulations in the state, attracting new businesses to the state.” Still, the Fox News poll suggests there’s room for Romney to advance. Nearly one in three Ohio voters said they are “not at all satisfied” with the way things are going in the country, and an additional 26 percent are “not very satisfied.” Only 7 percent are “very satisfied,” and 34 percent are “somewhat satisfied.”

Romney is trying to tap that discontent. But he’s having mixed success with his chief target: white, working-class voters who are socially conservative and often have union backgrounds. A generation ago they were called “Reagan Democrats.” In 2009, Obama’s administration used billions of taxpayer dollars to keep General Motors and Chrysler afloat while they reorganized through bankruptcy. Romney said the companies should have been allowed to enter bankruptcy without gover nment help. But an array of of ficials at the time said the automakers would have gone under without it.

part. Only about 1 to 2 percent of parents have opted out, according to the city Health Department. The program is seen as a way to reduce a startling number: More than 7,000 New York City girls ages 15 to 17 get pregnant each year. More than two-thirds of those pregnancies end in abortions. “We are committed to trying new approaches ... to improve a situation that can have lifelong consequences,” the Health Department said in a statement. In the 2011-12 school year, 576 girls got the pills

at the 13 added schools, said Deborah Kaplan, an assistant health commissioner. New York City’s schools already offer regular birth control pills, condoms and other contraception, just as many other schools around the country do. But emergency contraception is especially controversial. The American Academy of Pediatrics says Plan B does not cause abortion or encourage risky sex, and it has called for the sale of the morning-after pill over the counter to help prevent teen pregnancies. Last year, however, the

Obama administration blocked plans to put the pills on drugstore shelves, keeping them behind the phar macy counter. The contraceptive requires a prescription for those under 17 but is available to older women without a prescription if they show pharmacists proof of age. Opposition to making Plan B available over the counter came mostly from conservatives and religious groups who said such a step would promote underage sex.

PATCO strikers also wanted to be removed from the Civil Service’s clauses that had been restricting them for years. The organization’s strike violated a law that banned strikes by government unions and President Ronald Reagan ordered that the 11,345 air traf fic controllers return to work within 48 hours. When the strikers didn’t comply, they were all fired and banned from FAA service for life, including Frank III. The issue created a rift in the

father and son’s relationship and they would stop speaking to one another for about five years, except around the time of Frank IV’s birth. The two eventually patched things up and after President Bill Clintion lifted the ban on those who were a part of the PATCO strike, Frank III was rehired in 1994. He would work until his retirement in 2010. For Frank IV, being able to uphold his family’s legacy in a rather rough job is something he takes pride in. “It makes me very proud,” he said. “I can’t say enough about the pride I have doing my job.

We must remain engaged to assure that what began with citizens demanding their rights does not end in a cycle of sectarian violence.” they had been contacted by the Obama campaign, and 29 percent said they had heard from Romney’s camp. Romney campaign political director Rich Beeson told reporters Tuesday that Romney’s campaign has 40 offices in Ohio to Obama’s 100, but he said Republicans are keeping pace. Pro-Romney TV ads, however, target voters in the coal-rich eastern part of the state with spots criticizing Obama’s environmental regulations affecting coal-fired power plants. And other Ohio working-class voters are courted in GOP ads saying Obama hasn’t been tough enough on China’s protection of its exporters. Obama is airing ads disputing both claims. nancy rate also offers emergency contraception in a partnership with Planned Parenthood.

Teen pregnancies have declined in recent years nationwide, a trend attributed partly to increased use of birth control.

SANTA FE — Gov. Susana Martinez’s popularity among New Mexico voters recently shot up from 60 percent to 69 percent in a recent Albuquerque Journal poll. That puts her in third place nationally according to the latest figures I find. Such high popularity is quite unusual for a governor in a state dominated by the opposite party. It also is unusual for a member of the freshman class of new Republican governors around the nation elected in 2010. Most of those governors have had a terrible time overcoming their initial efforts to change the direction of state government. Gov. Martinez, instead picked her battles and didn’t try to take big chunks from schools or Medicaid, which are more popular with voters. Martinez’s sudden nine-point jump in popularity likely was caused by the timing of the poll which came just after Martinez’s Republican National Convention

Some of my friends tease me about having fallen in love with Martinez. I assure you that first gentleman Chuck Franco has no worries. I have taken Martinez to task when I have felt it appropriate, especially for half-hearted support of two of former Gov. Bill Richardson’s major projects — the film industry and the spaceport. The film industry appears to be recovering despite a rather confusing cap on rebates. The spaceport, however, appears to be in trouble. The governor pushed a liability limit on space parts suppliers in the last legislative session. It is difficult to know whether a more vigorous effort might have gotten the legislation past the trial lawyers’ lobby. But the lack of immunity seems to be a major obstacle to attracting space companies that currently are going elsewhere. An all-out effort by all parties to alleviate the several concerns of space companies is in order. If you are a spaceport supporter and one

speech. The speech didn’t have much of an effect on the nationwide television audience but it did in New Mexico. Since the three network channels cut away for commercials and analysis of Condoleezza Rice’s speech, many missed out on Martinez. But New Mexicans apparently did some channel switching to find Martinez on PBS, C-Span or a 24-hour news channels. Those New Mexicans who didn’t switch channels to find Martinez may just have been proud to have had their governor speak to a national audience and get good reviews. She even received two standing ovations.

of your legislators is a trial lawyer, it would be appropriate to encourage the candidate to help the spaceport effort rather than their pocket book. Gov. Martinez’s biggest legislative priorities have been taking driver’s licenses from undocumented immigrants and holding back third-graders who aren’t at reading level. Polls show New Mexicans support both efforts, thus another source of her popularity. Legislative leaders have suggested that if Martinez were interested in compromising a bit, she could get most of what she wants. Former Gov. Gary Johnson passed up similar compromises. Johnson’s last year in office, he vetoed a rather significant tax cut because it wasn’t everything he was asking. The following year Gov. Bill Richardson signed the bill and received national acclaim. But despite Martinez’s unwillingness to compromise she remains quite popular. Many Democrats complain her populari-

ty is not deserved because she can’t claim to have accomplished much. It could be that is what New Mexicans want. Bill Richardson could claim a ton of accomplishments and it made him popular into his second term. But by the end of that term, the economy was sinking and Richardson’s expensive accomplishments weren’t paying off with the economic development he had promised. Could it be that New Mexicans are glad to take a breather from expensive projects and are enjoying a more limited state government under a cost conscious governor? Publicity of Martinez for being run by shadowy advisers, misusing email accounts and an insider award of a racino contract hasn’t hit any raw nerves with 69 percent of New Mexicans.

Endeavour not the end

Shuttle Endeavour gave a final thrill to perhaps millions of Californians with its “victory lap” Friday, riding a customized NASA 747 from the Bay Area to Orange County before touching down at Los Angeles International Airport. The final destination is the California Science Center in Los Angeles’ Exposition Park, near USC. From the Huntington Beach coastline, including the Boeing plant where much shuttle work was undertaken, to Angel Stadium to Disneyland, people stopped what they were doing for a few moments (there was quite a bit of cheering from dozens of people gathered on the roof of the Register’s five-story building in Santa Ana) and gazed at the shuttle and its entourage of jets with pride and no small measure of wistfulness. The youngest shuttle, Endeavour, commissioned in 1987 after the shuttle Challenger disaster a year earlier, completed 25 missions. The shuttle spent a total of 299 days in space and orbited Earth roughly 4,700 times (that’s 123 million miles on the odometer). Endeavour, named after the first ship commanded by 18th-century British explorer James Cook, built and outfitted much of the International Space Station. In May 1992, three astronauts made an unprecedented three-person spacewalk to rescue a stranded Intelsat communications satellite. Some months later, the shuttle launched again to repair a faulty mirror with the Hubble Space Telescope. Endeavour transported the first African-American woman to space. For some, Endeavour’s final flight signals the end for NASA of an incredible era of manned spaceflight. We would disagree with that conclusion. The future for humans in space is very bright, indeed. It’s just that, for America, it will be privately financed exploration. The small but growing private-sector space industry, which already works with NASA and JPL, has already played a critical role in space exploration as evinced by NASA’s Mars rover Curiosity. Endeavour captured the American spirit. It’s a symbol of technical prowess and teamwork. Guest Editorial The Orange County Register


Who cares about Romney’s taxes? Did anyone think the release of Mitt Romney’s tax returns would satisfy Democrats and make them focus on the real issues in this campaign, including President Obama’s failed domestic and foreign policy record and approaching massive tax increases? If so, please call me for a great deal on Arizona swampland. The Obama campaign’s deputy manager, Stephanie Cutter, accused Romney of taking advantage of lower tax rates for capital gains available only to “those at the top.” Is Cutter saying Romney is wrong to obey tax law? The tax code is a mess. It, not Romney, should




be the object of scorn. And by the way, Americans who make average incomes can benefit from lower capital gains taxes if they build sufficient wealth by making good investments. Now that we know Romney paid a considerable amount of tax last year and in previous years, Senate Majority Leader

Harry Reid should apologize for his comment about an unnamed “source” he claimed told him Romney paid no taxes for a decade. After Romney released his returns, instead of apologizing, Reid tried a new tack. “The information released today reveals that Mitt Romney manipulated one of the only two years of tax returns he’s seen fit to show the American people,” Reid said in a statement. “And then only to ‘conform’ with his public statements. That raises the question: what else in those returns has Romney manipulated?” Reid, of course, still has not released his 2011 tax returns.

Is he hiding something? Suppose a “source” told me so? I don’t care how much, or how little, the Romneys pay in taxes. I do care, and so should voters, about government overspending and a national debt that now tops $16 trillion dollars. I don’t care how much money anyone makes and neither should voters. Voters should be concerned only about whether they have the opportunity to make a decent living without having to depend on government. I do care — and so should voters — that

Today is Wednesday, Sept. 26, the 270th day of 2012. There are 96 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight On Sept. 26, 1789, Thomas Jefferson was confirmed by the Senate to be the first United States secretary of state; John Jay, the first chief justice; Edmund Randolph, the first attorney general.

DEAR READER: Most people have hiccups occasionally, and sometimes they can last for days. What are they, and what can you do to stop them? At the bottom of your lungs, separating your chest from your abdomen, lies a flat, blanket-like muscle called the diaphragm. It moves down when you take a breath in, creating suction in your chest that helps pull air into your lungs. It moves up when you breathe out, helping push air out of your lungs. A hiccup is caused by a sudden contraction or spasm of the diaphragm. It makes you inhale quickly and involuntarily. Then


the space in your throat near your vocal cords snaps shut, producing the typical hiccup sound. T ry making a hiccup sound: You’ll discover that you need to take in a quick breath, and you’ll feel something move in your throat. Of the many purported ways to get rid of hiccups, here are a few that have some merit:

— Stimulate the uppermost region of your throat: Pull on your tongue; put a teaspoon of granulated sugar on the back of your tongue; gargle with water or sip ice water; drink from the far side of a glass; or bite on a lemon. (I’ve tried all of these, particularly the sugar trick, and they work for me.) — Tap or rub the back of your neck. — Gently poke the back of your throat with a long cotton swab. — Stimulate the cone-like tissue that hangs from the very back of the top of your mouth (the uvula) by touching it with a cotton swab. — Change your breathing pattern in various ways: Hold your breath; breathe into a

paper bag; gasp in fright; or pull your knees up to your chest and lean forward. — Distract yourself from the fact that you’re hiccupping. Occasionally, hiccups just won’t go away. But even longlasting hiccups don’t usually signal a medical problem. In a small number of cases, though, persistent hiccups may be a sign of disease. The underlying issue is usually something that causes irritation of one of the nerves in the chest that send signals to the diaphragm telling it to move. Hiccups can also be triggered by excess alcohol use, kidney failure and infections, especially ear infections. See DR. K, Page A5

Contracting local medical providers for veterans Roswell Daily Record

(Roswell veteran)—I had an appointment at the Albuquerque VA hospital for 10 a.m., so I left Roswell at 6 a.m. and went straight to the clinic. I waited until 11:45 a.m. and went to lunch when the girl at the desk said the doctor was having a problem, and wouldn’t be in until around 1 p.m. I came back at 12:45 p.m., and the desk clerk said the doctor would be in at 2:30 p.m. He asked me if I could wait a little longer and asked where I was from. I said Roswell, and he said that’s not that far away. At 2:30 p.m. I went up to see how much longer it was going to be, and they said about another hour. I left at 3 p.m. (no doctor seen), getting back to Roswell at 6:30 p.m. It seemed like they had too much going on there.

Mr. (blank) had an appointment for surgery and reported to the VA hospital at 9:30 a.m. We went to “admissions” on the first floor, filled out paperwork and was told by an admissions clerk all beds were filled. She asked if we wanted to stay there and wait around or drive around town until around 2:30 or 3 p.m. They finally had him a bed at 3:30 p.m. (after I complained to some man on the first floor and “dropped your name”). I’m not sure if we would have been assigned a bed otherwise. I returned to Roswell, arriving at 8:15 p.m. that night. The clinic was packed! Another veteran advised me of an appointment made for him to see a doctor in the pulmonary clinic at the Albuquerque VA

Hospital. There was no referring doctor listed on his appointment notice from Albuquerque, which seemed puzzling. This veteran is homebound (established by the VA themselves in a compensation claim). The veteran called to the VA scheduling department in Albuquerque. The scheduling person was very accommodating and canceled the mystery appointment. She commented that his attending physician could set up a fee-based

appointment here in Roswell to accomplish the pulmonary screening. Normally, that would be “end of story.” However, the VA reports that it is hard to find contracting medical providers in our area who are willing to see VA patients. I might just have a glaring reason why that situation exists (next week). Mr. Morgan Nelson reported the following. (Blank), a Viet Nam veteran, told me that he was sick and felt real bad, yesterday. He has Parkinson's disease, heart problems, kidney stones, etc. and is under the care of the Veterans Hospital in Albuquerque. I urged him to go to the Veteran clinic in Artesia as it was closer and he seemed to have an outpatient problem that could be handled locally (only an

80 mile trip and not a 500 mile trip). He went to Artesia and reported. After a one-hour wait, he was told they might could see him after all the regular appointments, probably at four or five o'clock since his primary care was Albuquerque. They would not treat him anytime soon and he would have to go to Albuquerque for diagnosis and treatment. Since he was suffering, he returned to Roswell and went to the Emergency Room at the Roswell hospital, where he was treated. He had spent nearly six hours going to Artesia, waiting for treatment that was denied. In the emergency room, his condition was quickly diagnosed, treated, and his suffering mitigated in less than 15 minutes. I don’t know his payment plans

but he has only a small pension and drives an old beat-up pickup. All this could have been alleviated quickly if the VA doctor or nurse had even looked at him in Artesia, instead of summarily and bureaucratically dismissing him. Even better—if VA had some facility, contract, or other arrangement in Roswell to take care of veterans emergency and outpatient needs. There are enough veterans to justify at least some contractual arrangement with a local doctor.

Sadly, these are by no means the only complaints I’ve received! Next week, some reasons (totally bogus) why the VA refuses, categorically, to establish contract clinic care here in Roswell for its veterans. God bless.

our future is being mortgaged to pay for “entitlements” and huge interest on longterm debt that is greater than the gross domestic product of some countries. Before leaving Washington to campaign for re-election, members of the Senate passed one of those stopgap spending bills, ensuring government paychecks will continue to go out. It ends what many regard as one of the least productive legislative sessions in U.S. history; not necessarily a bad thing when you consider the damage Congress might have caused were it not for a Republican House crying, “NO!” Voters should also recall the numerous bills passed by the House and ignored in the Democrat-controlled Senate. In the first presidential debate scheduled for Oct. 3, Romney must show a part of himself no one has yet seen and perhaps not even he knows exists. He should remind Americans of their history of selfreliance, personal responsibility and accountability. When government replaces those virtues with entitlements and dependency it diminishes and weakens the nation.

Government is supposed to be of, by and for the people, not in spite of the people. It is “we the people,” not you the government. It is the people who grant power to those who govern. It is not the government, or any politician, who has the constitutional right to limit our freedoms and shackle us to Washington. Quote Thomas Jefferson and Abraham Lincoln, Mitt. Quote Reagan. Remind people why the Democrats lost control of the House in 1994 and again in 2010. It makes no sense to vote for conservatives in one election and then vote for a liberal in another. Four years ago, a majority of Americans were seduced by Obama’s soaring and messianic rhetoric. It’s time for us to embrace what our parents and grandparents tried to hand down to us: individual responsibility and a sense of caring for each other. If Romney makes that case in this “entitlement nation,” he could win. If not, we’re finished and what Romney paid in taxes will matter even less than it should now.

If you have long-lasting hiccups, see your doctor. He or she will look for problems that may be causing them and then try to fix that problem. Your doctor may also prescribe a medication that can help stop your hiccups. The ones most often used are chlorpromazine, haloperidol and metoclopramide. Or your doctor may tell you to stop taking a particular drug that may be causing your hiccups. Examples include midazolam, some types of chemotherapy and digoxin.

Surgery for persistent hiccups is another option, though it’s rarely used. One type of surgery is a “nerve block” that stops a signal telling the diaphragm to contract. Another option is implanting a pacemaker that makes the diaphragm contract more rhythmically. Fortunately, the simple solutions I described earlier almost always solve the problem.

Three dogs in animal cruelty case now up for adoption STORY AND PHOTOS BY JESSICA PALMER RECORD STAFF WRITER

Roswell City Attorney Barbara Patterson has released these three survivors of the Luis Baltazar cruelty case for adoption. The dogs have been through both trials and tribulations. They were held at Animal Control until the former owner’s trial. After Baltazar’s conviction on extreme animal cruelty, Animal Services questioned whether it was legal to place them up for adoption. Many people have expressed interest in the dogs, but were thwarted as the legal issues were yet unresolved. Now all the legal questions have been answered and they ar e fr ee to find a good home. These three dogs are only a few of many animals at Animal Services, 705 E. McGaffey St., and each life is pre-

cious. Meanwhile, two local veterinarians are offering spay and neutering discounts. South Springs Animal Hospital, 3501 Old Dexter Hwy., has a $60 fee for all dogs and a discount for cats. Chaves County Animal Control Of ficer Laura Hite said that it cost $127 to get her miniature dachshund neutered.

Smith’s Animal Clinic announced it will have a special 25 percent discount for spaying and neutering for both cats and dogs in their clinic at 1209 S. Union Ave. in October, making October a good month to adopt an animal from Animal Services. “These deals are only available for animals adopted from the shelter,” said Kim Conner, receptionist at Animal Control.

Immigrant requests strain consulates, schools SAN DIEGO (AP) — Schools in Yakima, Wash., are taking nearly a month to deliver transcripts to former students. The Mexican consulate in Denver introduced Saturday hours last month after passport applications spiked by one-third. San Diego public schools added five employees in a new of fice to handle records requests. Schools and consulates have been flooded with requests for documents after President Barack Obama announced a new program allowing young people living in the country illegally to apply for two-year renewable work permits. Up to 1.7 million people may qualify, which would be the broadest stroke to bring illegal immigrants out of the shadows in more than 25 years. Applicants — some eager to get in line before November’s presidential elections — are finding they may have to wait a few weeks longer for a prize that has eluded them for years. The clamor for documents is an early sign that the policy is highly popular. The Obama administration said this month that it approved the first 29 applications among more than 82,000 received since it began accepting requests Aug. 15. The Mexican consulate in Los

Angeles issued 17,444 passports and consular identification cards in August, up 63 percent from the same period last year, said Consul General David Figueroa, who attributes the entire increase to the new policy. The wait for a passport appointment at the largest Mexican consulate grew from one or two days to 40 days last month, then fell to 30 days after the consulate hired five employees to handle the increased workload, opened its main of fice on Saturdays and extended hours at satellite offices to seven days a week from five. U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services recently clarified expectations, relieving applicants who worried they would need exhaustive proof of their whereabouts. Eligible applicants must have come to the U.S. before they turned 16, be 30 or younger, be high school graduates or in college, or have served in the military, and they cannot have serious criminal records. They also must have lived in the country since June 2007. The new guidelines, issued Sept. 14, say applicants should provide as much evidence “as reasonably possible” that they stayed in the U.S. — ideally for every year — but that they don’t have to

account for every day of the last five years. The government also reassured employers who were nervous about providing evidence that they hired an illegal immigrant. Documents will not be used against employers unless they committed “egregious violations of criminal statues or widespread abuses.” Rep. Lamar Smith, chairman of the House Judiciary Committee and a critic of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals policy, called the latest changes an example of how the Obama administration “routinely puts illegal immigrants first at the expense of the American people.” Since July, transcript requests at Aurora Public Schools in suburban Denver jumped to 1,500, up by more than two-thirds compared to the same period last year. More than half of this year’s requests are tied to the new immigration policy. The Yakima School District in central Washington state is taking nearly a month to produce transcripts, though college applicants go to the top of the pile and have to wait only two days, said Roy Knox, director of central registration, who planned to bring in a substitute teacher to help. Before

the new immigration policy, transcripts were generally a same-day service. Some campuses in Los Angeles Unified School District battled backlogs of 200 to 300 applicants, prompting administrators to create an online for m this month that funnels applications to a central location, said Lydia Ramos, a special assistant to the superintendent. The district, which put workers on overtime to catch up, anticipates spending about $200,000 on the requests, including $15,000 for postage.

The Los Angeles school board, facing a backlog of 2,300 requests, ordered administrators this month to develop a plan that cuts waiting times from up to 45 days to seven days. It estimates 50,000 requests over the next few months.

San Diego Unified School District set up a temporary office and anticipates spending $45,000 on the effort through Dec. 14, said Linda Zintz, communications director. Between 80 and 100 people call or visit daily, but the office can only handle about 30 requests daily, creating waits of more than two weeks for an appointment with generally sameday service.

SCOTUS grants appeals from 2 people without lawyers Roswell Daily Record

WASHINGTON (AP) — Well-heeled clients pay tens of thousands of dollars to hit the legal jackpot — Supreme Court review of their appeals. But on Tuesday, the court decided to hear cases filed by two people who couldn’t afford or didn’t bother to hire an attorney. One was written in pencil and submitted by an inmate at a federal prison in Pennsylvania. The other was filed by a man with no telephone living on Guam. Neither case seems destined to join the ranks of Gideon v. Wainwright, the landmark 1960s case filed by a prisoner with no lawyer that established a criminal defendant’s right to a lawyer. Both show, however, that when the court is looking to resolve finicky legal issues and the right case shows up, it doesn’t matter whether the author of the appeal wears a natty suit or prison garb. Longtime Supreme Court practitioner Tom Goldstein called the granting of two such lawyerless cases at the same time “unheard of.” But both cases chosen by the justices will help resolve the ability of civil-

ians to sue the government over claims of improper actions of federal and military employees on the job. Kim Lee Millbrook, a prisoner at the federal prison in Lewisburg, Pa., sued the government after accusing prison guards at the Special Management Unit of sexually assaulting him in May 2010. Prison officials said Millbrook’s claim was unsubstantiated. The lower courts threw out Millbrook’s lawsuit, but justices said they would use his appeal — carefully written in longhand — to decide the narrow issue of when the government can be sued for claims of abuses by federal prison guards. Millbrook wrote on a form that can be printed off the Supreme Court website that he was proceeding without a lawyer because he couldn’t afford to pay one. He is not scheduled to be released from prison until 2033. Steven Alan Levin, the petitioner on Guam in the other case granted by the Supreme Court, did not say whether he couldn’t afford a lawyer or just wanted to proceed on his own. Levin did not file as a pauper; he

paid the $300 fee required to file a petition. Levin sued over a Navy surgeon’s performance of unsuccessful cataract surgery on him. He was operated on in March 2003 at the United States Naval Hospital in Guam. Levin said he withdrew his consent for the surgery before the operation began but doctors proceeded anyway. Levin suffered complications, which require ongoing treatment. Levin sued the U.S. government for medical malpractice and battery. The courts threw out the medical malpractice complaint and kept the battery charge. But the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said the government is also immune from being sued for battery. The high court will now decide whether the government can be sued for improper actions committed by military medical personnel while on the job. The court almost always assigns a lawyer to assist

in the extremely rare instances in which justices accept cases in which the petitioner represents himself, which are known as “pro se” cases. The most famous is Gideon v. Wainwright, in which the high court said states have to provide lawyers to defendants who can’t afford a lawyer in state courts, just as the federal courts do. Lawyer Abe Fortas, who would later become a Supreme Court justice, was appointed by the court to argue for Clarence Earl Gideon, and won a unanimous decision.

The Supreme Court does not track the number of pro se cases granted but more than half of the appeals filed at the federal appeals court level are without a lawyer. In 2010, 28,931 pro se appeals were filed in the federal appeals courts in 2010. It’s not certain whether either man yet knows that the Supreme Court has taken his case. It was mid-

Wednesday, September 26, 2012

night in Guam when Levin’s case was granted, and he listed no telephone number on his Supreme Court brief. Millbrook is currently being held in a high security federal prison designated as a Special Management Unit for violent and disruptive inmates, and does not have email or phone privileges. The only way to contact him, a prison spokesman, was through postal mail. The court also:

•Agreed to decide when law enforcement officers must get a warrant before ordering a blood test on an unwilling drunken-driving suspect. The Missouri Supreme Court said police need a warrant to take a suspect’s blood except in special circumstances when a delay could threaten a life or destroy potential evidence. Other courts have ruled that dissipation of alcohol in the blood is reason enough for police to call for a blood test without first getting a warrant.

•Upheld West Virginia’s congressional redistricting plan against a challenge that small population variations among its three congressional districts violate the Constitution. The justices, in an unsigned opinion, reversed a lower federal court ruling that struck down the plan because of the population differences.

•Will rule on whether lawyers can obtain personal information from driver license records to recruit clients for lawsuits, despite a federal privacy law intended to shield motor vehicle records. The justices will hear an appeal from three South Carolinians who objected to solicitations from lawyers to join a lawsuit against car dealers.

The court’s new ter m begins on Monday. These cases probably will be argued in January.

North Carolina said Roy Williams’ surgically removed kidney tumor was not cancerous, though he will have a biopsy to ensure a second kidney tumor is also benign. In a news release Tuesday afternoon, the school said tests have determined the tumor removed last week from Williams’ right kidney was an oncocytoma, which is a benign growth often indistinguishable from kidney cancer on X-rays that doesn’t spread like a cancerous tumor would. Williams, 62, also has a tumor on his left kidney, but according to the school, doctors say there is “a good chance” that growth is the same as the one removed Sept. 19. Doctors plan to biopsy that tumor next week and won’t have to perform a second surgery if the tumor is also an oncocytoma. Dr. Eric Wallen, a UNC professor of urology who led the surgical team during 3 1/2-hour procedure, said last week that Williams should be back in plenty of time for the start of preseason practice on Oct. 13. “We are pleased with how well Coach Williams is doing,” Wallen said Tuesday in a statement. “If everything continues to progress as expected, he should be back to his normal activities soon. In a statement, Williams thanked the medical staff who treated him and said he was “overwhelmed” by the messages of support he had received since the surgery. “I’ve just been blown away by the calls, cards, prayers and well-wishes from people all around the world in and out of the basketball community,” Williams said. “My family and I are thankful to all that have expressed your concerns.”



NFL upholds Seattle’s win on MNF Section

Roswell Daily Record

NEW YORK (AP) — The NFL conceded Tuesday that a bad call cost the Green Bay Packers the game — yet still upheld the Seattle Seahawks’ victory. While coaches, players and fans — even athletes in other sports — ripped the use of replacement refs, the league met with its locked-out officials Tuesday in an attempt to resolve the impasse. Two people with knowledge of the talks told The Associated Press that the sides were meeting Tuesday. They spoke on condition of anonymity because the discussions were not made public. The NFL said Seattle’s last-second touchdown pass of the “Monday Night Football” game should

Roswell Briseno’s goal leads to victory wins 3-0 Local Briefs



Roswell moved to 6-4 on the year with a three-set sweep of Portales at the Coyote Den, Tuesday. The Coyotes won the first set 25-9, the second set 2515 and the third set 25-20. Ali Castro led the team in aces and Emily EllingtonRomero and Gali Sanchez led the team in blocks. “The team played really well tonight,” said Coyote coach Heather Baca. “We came out strong and served really well. (The Rams) just didn’t play their game tonight, they could never get into rhythm. They are a lot better team than they played tonight. “But our team was pretty solid. The defense was pretty tough tonight, we didn’t let much hit the floor.”

HOBBS — In theory, when a soccer team gets out-shot nearly 3-to-1, loses the corner-kick battle 7-3 and struggles to maintain possession long enough to establish a consistent offensive attack, a loss should be the outcome. That’s why it is a theory. Despite losing in nearly every statistical category, Goddard beat Hobbs 1-0 behind a stellar performance by keeper Michael Varela, timely possession at the end of the second half and a gorgeous goal by Jose Briseno. From the beginning of the match, it was apparent that the Rockets would have their hands full with the Eagles. In the second minute, Hobbs had two shots from inside the box, but the Goddard defense was able to collapse and deflect both shots, preserving the tie. In the 10th minute, the Eagles had three consecutive corner kicks, with the final one resulting in a good look at goal for Angel Navarro. The look was all he would get as Varela made a spectacular diving save to keep the game scoreless. Goddard was finally able to break through the Hobbs defense in the 25th minute. Briseno ran on a through ball and was able to get on it in time to loft a shot over a charging Eagle keeper to

In a blowout, the best thing you can do is find something positive to take from it and move on. The Goddard girls soccer team was defeated by mercy rule 10-0 in the 62nd minute by the Hobbs Eagles, Tuesday. From the start, it was clear who the score was going to favor. Hobbs’ Maricruz Carrillo scored

her first of four goals on the night in just the second minute. The Rockets showed their only sign of offensive life shortly after when Camille Martinez hit a shot right at Hobbs keeper Alejandra Espinoza. After the punt from Espinoza, Martinez found the ball at her feet again and played a nice cross into Danielle Hubbard, who arrived for See GODDARD, Page B3

Notre Dame exercises 3-year out in Michigan deal

1 2 3 4 6 5 7 9 10 8 2 1 3 4 6 5

ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) — Notre Dame is opting out of its series with Michigan, meaning the last scheduled game between college football’s winningest programs will take place in 2014. A letter from Notre Dame athletic director Jack Swarbrick to Michigan athletic director Dave Brandon cancelling games in 2015-2017 was obtained by The Associated Press on Tuesday through a Freedom of Information Act request. Brandon told the AP he was handed the letter on the field in South Bend, Ind., about an hour before Saturday night’s game. “I put the letter in my pocket and didn’t bother to read it right away because I was


focused on the game we were about to play,” Brandon said. “I read it on the way home Sunday morning.” The Fighting Irish recently decided to move to the Atlantic Coast Conference in every sport except football and hockey, though the football team will play five games a year against league opponents, starting no later than 2015. “While this move is a necessary precaution as we begin the process of meeting our new scheduling commitment to the ACC,” Swarbrick wrote in his letter to Brandon, “please know that Notre Dame very much values its relationship with Michigan and we look forward to working with you to ensure that our great football rivalry can continue.” Brandon said he hopes to work with Swarbrick on another contract to extend the series. “The ball is in their court because they’ve triggered the three-game notice,” he said. “We’ll play them next year at Michigan Stadium for the last time in a while — it appears — and we’ll make our last scheduled trip to South Bend in 2014. There will likely be nothing on the board for five years after that. Beyond that, I don’t know what will happen.” The Irish beat the Wolverines 13-6 over the weekend in the latest game of a storied series that dates to 1887. They’ve played every year since 2002 and regularly since 1978 after not meeting from 1944-77 or 1910-41. Michigan and Notre Dame were scheduled to take a hiatus during the 2018-19 seasons. Swarbrick’s letter is dated a day before the schools met on the field and cites last year’s agreement. “Because I am providing you with this notice prior to the commencement of this year’s football game on September, 22, 2012,” Swarbrick wrote, “there is no liability to Notre Dame for cancelling those games.” The contract has an automatic rollover provision with a year being added each time a game is played, according to Notre Dame senior associate athletics director John Heisler. “We needed to avoid the automatic addition of additional games until we can get a better understanding of our available inventory in those years,” Heisler said in a released statement, “an understanding that will develop as we implement our fivegame scheduling commitment to the Atlantic Coast Conference.” By opting out of the contract now, the Irish wind up as the host for two of the final three years of the deal — and will avoid playing at the Big House twice during the final three years. Wolverines coach Brady Hoke said Notre Dame has to do what is best for itself, and must’ve determined that was to get out of the rivalry. “Obviously we kind of enjoy and cherish the rivalry,” Hoke said Tuesday night. “There’s so much history there.” No. 10 Notre Dame (4-0) is in the top 10 for the first time since 2006. Michigan (2-2) started the season No. 8 and has dropped out of the poll after losses to No. 1 Alabama and then the Irish. Both teams have a bye this week. The Wolverines have an NCAA-best .735 winning percentage in football and the Irish (.732) are second. Michigan leads all-time series 23-16-1. “Michigan has always enjoyed and respected our national rivalry with Notre Dame,” Brandon said. “We understand there have been periods of times that we’ve had a hiatus to take a couple years off to play other teams and that was something we expected along the way. “It’s unfortunate that it would appear we’re going to go a substantial amount of time between games. But that is a decision Notre Dame has made. Our job is to find opponents that are exciting for our student-athletes as well as our fans to replace Notre Dame.” Michigan State expects its long series with Notre Dame to continue with matchups in four straight seasons followed by two-year breaks through the 2031 season. If the Irish, or the Spartans, want to get out of the deal they can pay the other school as little as $150,000 with a two-year notice. Michigan State athletic director Mark Hollis said earlier this month that he doesn’t expect Notre Dame’s ACC affiliation to affect the rivalry.

Cowboys’ Church on injured reserve, Frampton signs

IRVING, Texas (AP) — Free agent safety Eric Frampton has been signed by the Dallas Cowboys, who placed starter Barry Church on injured reserve. The moves Tuesday officially end Church’s season. He ruptured his Achilles tendon in Sunday’s 16-10 victory over Tampa Bay. Frampton is primarily a special teams player. In 76 career games the past five seasons, including all 16 games last year for Minnesota, Frampton had four tackles on defense, all in one game. He had 61 tackles on special teams. Drafted by Oakland in 2007, Frampton was cut at the end of his rookie training camp and signed by Detroit. He played five

games for the Lions early in the 2007 season before being released and claimed on waivers by Minnesota, where he played 4 1⁄2 seasons before being released Aug. 31.

first three weeks of the season and reached an apex Monday when a highly questionable call decided the outcome of a game. Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, normally a soft-spoken player who didn’t say much after the game, lashed out on his radio show a day later. “First of all, I’ve got to do something that the NFL is not going to do: I have to apologize to the fans,� he said. Even President Barack Obama got in on the conversation Tuesday, tweeting: “NFL fans on both sides of the aisle hope the refs’ lockout is settled soon.� The controversy began on the final play when Russell Wilson

heaved a 24-yard pass into a scrum in the end zone with Seattle trailing 12-7. Tate shoved away a defender with both hands, and the NFL acknowledged Tuesday he should have been penalized, which would have clinched a Packers victory. But it was not called and cannot be reviewed by instant replay. Tate and Green Bay safety M.D. Jennings then both got their hands on the ball, though the Packers insisted Jennings had clear possession for a game-ending interception. “It was pinned to my chest the whole time,� Jennings said. Instead, the officials ruled on the field that the two had simultaneous possession, which counts as a reception. Once that happened, the NFL said, the referee was correct that no indisputable visual evidence existed

on review to overturn the touchdown call. “The NFL Officiating Department reviewed the video today and supports the decision not to overturn the on-field ruling following the instant replay review,� the league said in a statement. Saying there was no indisputable evidence, though, is not the same as confirming the initial call was correct. Simultaneous possession can be reviewed only on plays in the end zone. On his weekly appearance on Seattle radio station 710 KIROAM, Seahawks coach Pete Carroll made no apologies Tuesday, saying, “The league backed it up and game over. We win.� “Golden makes an extraordinary effort. It’s a great protection. It’s a great throw. It’s a great attempt at the ball and he wins the battle,� he said. “They were

right on the point looking right at it, standing right over the thing and they reviewed it. Whether they missed the push or not — obviously they missed the push in the battle for the ball — but that stuff goes on all the time.� But Rodgers, in a reference to referee Wayne Elliott not seeing indisputable evidence, said: “I mean, come on, Wayne. That’s embarrassing.� The NFL locked out the officials in June after their contract expired. Unable to reach a new collective bargaining agreement, the league opened the season with replacements, most with experience only in lower levels of college football. Coaches and players began griping about the replacements in the preseason, but the frustration seemed to boil over in Week 3 this past weekend.


Scuffles after the whistle were frequent with players appearing to test the limits of the new officials and coaches were fined for berating them. Las Vegas oddsmakers said $300 million or more changed hands worldwide on Monday’s call. The Glantz-Culver line for the game opened favoring the Packers by 4½. Had the play been ruled an interception, Green Bay would have won by 5. The call also found its way into Wisconsin politics, with Republican Gov. Scott Walker tweeting for the regular officials to return. Opponents noted that he seemed to be supporting the referees union after going after public employee unions last year, though Democratic state Sen. Jon Erpenbach added: “We’re all fans, first and foremost.â€?

Packers’ loss ripples from Lambeau to White House

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — Entire stadiums have booed them. The Patriots’ Bill Belichick grabbed one by the arm and the Redskins’ Kyle Shanahan was so hopping mad he followed one into the tunnel after the game. But it took the team that Vince Lombardi built, playing in a “Monday Night Football� headliner, to put the NFL’s latest labor headache — locked-out officials and their struggling, under -fire replacements — front and center for the nation. Even President Barack Obama, a Bears fan slogging through a re-election campaign, weighed in Tuesday, say-


ing, “We’ve got to get our refs back.� Is this where the NFL’s lockout of its regular refs comes to an end? On a call that many believe cost the Packers and their Cheesehead-wearing followers a win at Seattle? The NFL stood fast, giving no sign Tuesday that it was close to reaching a new labor pact with the referees’ union. But the outrage grew beyond NFL players (risking fines for speaking out) like Falcons tight end Anthony Gonzalez, who tweeted: “How do you miss that? Pop Warner refs would have gotten that right.� LeBron James tweeted

Set scores were unavailable at press time.

In the past, we’ve had trouble keeping the momentum. “But, tonight, we kept playing and the girls had fun with it.�

NMMI 3, Ruidoso JV 0 The Colts swept three straight from the Ruidoso junior varsity team, Tuesday. “I’m proud of the girls. I know they’re tired,� said Colt coach Stephanie Schooley. “I was really proud that they pulled this out in three sets and didn’t make it go any longer.�

the ball just after it had been cleared out by Espinoza. From that point on, the Eagles allowed no true scoring opportunities and created a vast amount for themselves. One of two goals for Ariel Lopez came in the 14th minute, and, after that, the Eagles forgot how to miss the net. The Eagles put up four more goals and cruised to a halftime lead of 6-0, led by the scoring of Carrillo, Lopez and Alicia Sledge. The halftime break didn’t really seem to make a difference as the Eagles came out striking once again. In the 42nd minute, a hand ball in

he was “sick� about it and Dirk Nowitzki said he was “not gonna watch another nfl game until real refs� return, while fans pretty much everywhere except Seattle concluded that Green Bay was robbed. Some threatened to boycott until order is restored and others tried to pull the plug on their NFL satellite television packages, only to be told that they can’t cancel in the middle of the season. “I don’t really want to give them money if they’re going to be greedy about things,� said Packers fan Chris Kroening, who lives in Milwaukee. “It’s just not that fun to watch any

NMMI 4, Portales 0 The Colts scored four second-half goals en route to their sixth victory of the year over Portales at Stapp Parade Field, Tuesday. Jorge Garza opened the scoring midway through the second half, giving the Colts all the cushion they would need to get the win. German Corral Cubillas added the second off a feed from Angel Reyes, Daniel Kartushyn added the second off an assist from Garza and Garza capped the scoring with his second goal of the game off a feed from Marco Rojo. “We came out and did a good job in the second half of putting the ball in the back of the net, so I was really happy with that,� said Colt coach John Barbour, whose team moved

the box led to a penalty kick for the Eagles. Strangely enough, the Eagles brought up Espinoza to take the penalty and she put it away just past Rocket keeper Bianca Banda. With goals coming from Carrillo in the 46th minute and Jessica Singleton in the 58th minute, the Eagles had a 9-0 lead. In the 61st minute, Carrillo put her fourth goal in the back of the net to secure the win by mercy rule. When asked what positives the Rockets take out of the loss, coach Betty Elizondo stated, “We are taking this as a learning experience and getting ready to go to district. Our goal is to do well at district.�

more. I can find better things to do on a Sunday afternoon than watch refs make bad calls.� For all their outrage, Kroening and Michael Mantuano, a Packers fan in Pine Bluff, Ark., both acknowledged that they would probably be watching on Sunday when Green Bay hosts the Saints. “Yeah, I’m going to watch the game because I still love the Packers,� Mantuano said. “But it’s a bitter pill to swallow on Tuesday morning when it just clearly wasn’t the right call.� It all started when Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson’s last-gasp pass into the end zone appeared

to 6-4 on the year. “It took awhile to break (the Rams) down. They were playing a real defensive formation ... but once we got a couple of goals in, it came a little bit easier.�

Clovis 3, Roswell 0 CLOVIS — Clovis scored two goals early in the first half en route to a shutout victory over Roswell, Tuesday. The Coyotes dropped to 3-10 with the loss. Coyote coach Samantha Ward was disappointed with the loss, but pleased with the way her team battled. “Overall, that’s the hardest we’ve played since the first game against St. Pius,� she said. “We played the full 80 minutes. We were pleased with the way the girls played. “It wasn’t a win and we always want to win, but we were pleased with the way we played.�

give the Rockets a 1-0 lead. “Jose again ran on a through ball and the keeper came out and (Briseno) lobbed it over,� Goddard coach Fernando Sosa said regarding the only goal of the game. “We had about three others like that where we should have scored.� Seconds before halftime, Hobbs’ D’Andre Finney gained possession of a loose ball in the Rocket box and fired a shot to the upper 90, which almost always results in a goal in high school soccer. On a night of abnormalities, however, Varela made

to be hauled down by Packers defensive back M.D. Jennings while Seahawks receiver Golden Tate also got his hands on the ball. Two replacement officials made contrasting signals — one indicated a touchdown, the other an interception — and they eventually ruled on the field that Tate had simultaneous possession with Jennings, which counts as a reception by the offensive player. Touchdown, Seattle. Game over, Packers. The NFL acknowledged Tuesday that Tate should have been flagged for offensive pass interference earlier on the play, which would have ended the game with a Packers victory. But league officials said the referee was correct that no indisputable visual evidence existed on a replay review to overtur n the touchdown call. The result of the game, 14-12 Seattle, was final. That’s certainly not how the Packers saw it, insisting that Jennings clearly had intercepted the pass. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers called it “awful� in his postgame interview and he didn’t let up Tuesday. He called the league’s conclusion “garbage� and said the officials were responsible for a “phantom� pass inter ference call earlier against the Packers before having “zero communication� after the final play. “I’ve got to do something that the NFL is not going to

his best save, using every inch of his frame to deflect the shot over the cross bar. Sosa said that Varela’s performance in goal is more of the same for the senior. “I mean he has been huge for us most of the season,� he said. “He came to us from playing football and he was huge. We just keep working with him and he is doing a great job.� At the start of the second half, Goddard’s Rhett Maxey had a breakaway opportunity after a pretty header from Briseno, but his shot sailed wide of the goal. Hobbs would continue to maintain a majority of the possession, but couldn’t cash in. In the 75th minute, Hobbs really

do: I have to apologize to the fans,� Rodgers said on his weekly radio show on ESPN 540-AM in Milwaukee. “Our sport is generated — the multibillion-dollar machine — is generated by people who pay good money to watch us play. And the product that’s on the field is not being complemented by an appropriate set of officials. “The games are getting out of control, and like I said in the first week, I said this, I’m OK with the replacement refs as long as they don’t have a direct impact on the game,� Rodgers said. “Obviously, last night, there was a direct impact on the game.� He added: “The game is being tarnished by an NFL who obviously cares more about saving some money than having the integrity of the game diminished.� Packers guard T.J. Lang posted a message on his Twitter account criticizing the call, then challenged the NFL to “Fine me and use the money to pay the regular refs.� On Tuesday, Lang apologized for using profanity in his posts — but said that was the only thing he regretted. Fellow Packers offensive lineman Josh Sitton used his Twitter account to call on the NFL to come to Green Bay and apologize to the Packers. “The NFL needs to get the refs back (before) we strike and they make no money!� Sitton posted after the game.

started to get a sense of urgency, but, when it mattered most, Goddard was able to keep control of the ball. The Rocket defense and midfielders were able to clear the ball, slowing down the Eagle onslaught enough to preserve the win. Sosa said that it was the best his defense has played this season. “That was probably the best our defense has ever played,� he said. “(Varela) was blocking goal after goal and we just kept telling the kids to pass it and they were doing it. This was probably the best we have ever cleared the ball and that was the difference.� Goddard improved to 4-8-1 with the win, while Hobbs fell to 4-8.

DEAR FOXY: Let’s review your options as a process of elimination. I don’t recommend that you do anything behind your husband’s back because, at some point, what you’re doing is sure to come out. I also do not recommend suffering in silence because sooner or later your unhappiness will become apparent. That leaves the option of divorce. Because you and your husband no longer see eye to eye on the issue of marital fidelity and he wants a wife who will “cleave” unto him only, it makes sense to go your separate ways so both of your needs can be met. #####


DEAR ABBY: I have been married for 10 years. Early in our marriage my husband talked about wanting to try swinging. We did, and had many enjoyable experiences. Two years ago he decided he no longer wanted to be in the lifestyle, so we stopped. The problem is, I miss it very much. I want to get back into it and have talked with him about it, but he insists we stay out of it. I am torn between going to parties behind his back, suffering my displeasure in silence because I’m not able to do something I really enjoyed, or divorcing. Can you help me figure this out? FOXY IN PHOENIX

DEAR ABBY: The other day when I went jogging, I met a guy just as I stopped to take a water break. He started flirting and I was too tired to tell him to leave, so I decided to humor him until I cooled down enough to resume my jog. He asked me basic questions trying to get to know me, and when I told him I was a college student, he asked for my GPA. When I told him



it was none of his business, he laughed and asked what my problem was. He said no one else had complained when he asked, and he didn’t mean to pry. I still felt he was being rude, so I said goodbye and jogged off before he could say anything. Abby, I wasn’t trying to hide a low GPA, but I don’t think it’s something to tell people in a first meeting. Is it normal for people to ask others what their GPA is — especially if they just met? CO-ED IN BOSTON

DEAR CO-ED: When someone says he or she is a student, the question that usually follows is, “Where are you studying?” or “What’s your major?” It’s not, “What’s your GPA?” which seems like a not-sosubtle way of asking whether you’re a good student or not. His attempt to make conversation was clumsy — and because he said the question is one he asks routinely, let’s hope he lear ns from his encounter with you and scratches it off his list of pickup lines. #####

Dear Heloise: I read your reply to a question regarding the SHELF LIFE OF OLIVES. We use olives a lot and keep them in their original brine in the refrigerator. The past few months, when we’ve opened a jar that some olives have been used out of, there has been mold on the top, they’ve tasted funny, and we’ve ended up throwing them out. What do you suggest? I.H., via email

Hmmm. Olive manufacturers say olives last for up to 12 months in the jar in the refrigerator. But NEVER use your fingers to get the olives out of the jar! You may be adding bacteria or germs. If white film or mold develops, simply remove it by tipping over the jar and pouring out the film. You can add a teaspoon or so of vinegar to the jar to keep this film from forming. The olives still should be safe to eat. However, if they taste funny, then you should throw them out! Heloise

Dear Heloise: Here are two hints about eggs: When I am buying eggs, I always open the carton and give each egg a twist to make sure it isn’t broken or cracked. Once home, if you find an egg stuck to the carton, try this hint: Run a little cool water into the carton, after removing the other eggs, and let it sit for a few minutes. The water will loosen the egg enough that you can remove it. I have found that some stuck eggs weren’t even broken or cracked, they just needed help getting out of the carton.

Who is Hispanic? “Hispanic� refers to a person whose family or ancestors came from Mexico, Puerto Rico, Cuba, South or Central America, or another Spanish culture. “Latin America� means parts of the Americas where mostly Spanish is spoken. Sometimes people from these regions are called “Latinos.�

North America Mexico Mexico is the only Latin American country in North America. It is bordered by the United States to the north (Texas, New Mexico, Arizona and California) and Central America to the south. To the east lies the Gulf of Mexico; to the west is the Pacific Ocean. Before conquerors arrived in the 1500s from Spain, Mexico was home to Aztec and other civilizations. The Spanish brought their religion and language to the region and called it New Spain. Mexico declared its independence from Spain on Sept. 16, 1810.

If you live in the United States, you probably call yourself an American. But almost all Americans can trace their ancestors back to other countries. Through our history, many millions of people have immigrated, or moved, to the United States to live. From Sept. 15 to Oct. 15, we celebrate National Hispanic Heritage Month. Sept. 15 is the anniversary of independence in five Latin American countries: Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua. Mexico, Chile and Belize also celebrate independence in September. This week in The Mini Page, we learn more about a few Latin American countries. Do some research to learn about other countries with Hispanic roots.

Imagine being a defensive back in the NFL and having to cover Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson. With magnetic hands and breakaway speed, the Lions’ “King� dazzles by making spectacular catches seem routine. In his first five seasons, Johnson has 366 receptions totaling 5,872 yards and 49 touchdowns. He had 1,681 receiving yards and 16 TDs last fall. Before going pro, Johnson was voted the nation’s top receiver at Georgia Tech in 2006. In college he majored in building construction, and one summer he helped with building safe latrines for the poor in Bolivia. Since then he’s built an All-Pro football career, signed a new eight-year contract, and expects to keep Lions fans roaring for a long time.

American’s confidence in the Staples ready to expedite closure economy at a 7-month high of 15 stores in the United States

NEW YORK (AP) — U.S. consumer confidence jumped this month to the highest level since February, bolstered by a brighter hiring outlook. The Conference Board said Tuesday that its Consumer Confidence Index rose to 70.3. That’s up from 61.3 in August, which was revised higher. And it’s the highest reading since February, when the economy added 259,000 jobs. The indicator is watched closely because consumer spending drives nearly 70 percent of economic activity. The reading is still below 90, a level that indicates a healthy economy. Since the beginning of the year, the index has fluctuated sharply. The survey was conducted from Sept. 1 through Sept. 13. It showed consumers were more optimistic about the current availability of jobs and their outlook over the next six months. Their confidence in the job market is higher, even though employers added just 96,000 jobs in August. That’s down from 141,000 in July and too few to keep up with population growth. The unemployment rate

Staples is speeding up the closure of about 15 of its U.S. stores and plans to close 45 stores and some delivery businesses in Europe. The office products company also says it will invest more in its online and mobile efforts and will expand the product assortment that it offers to its business customers. Staples Inc. said Tuesday that these moves and other actions are part of a strategic plan to better serve customers’ needs and accelerate growth. Staples is trying to adapt to the evolving needs of its customers. Last month the company reported that its secondquarter net income fell as sales of computers, software, and basic office supplies softened. Computer sales have been pressured by the introduction to many offices of the computer tablet and other mobile devices. Traffic is also down at Staples stores and Europe continues to be a weak spot. The chain expects the U.S. store closings will

U.S. consumer confidence jumped this month to the highest level since February, bolstered by a brighter hiring outlook. fell to 8.1 percent from 8.3 percent, but only because many people gave up their job search, so they were no longer counted as unemployed. A measure of how consumers feel now about the economy rose to 50.2, up from 46.5 last month. And they are even more optimistic about the next six months. The upbeat report on confidence comes as a widely watched index on home prices offered more evidence of a housing recovery.

According to the Standard & Poor’s/Case Shiller index, home prices kept rising in July across the United States, buoyed by greater sales and fewer foreclosures. National home prices increased 1.2 percent in July, compared to the same month last year, according to the index. That’s the second straight year-over-year gain after two years without one. Steady price increases and record-low mortgage rates are helping drive a housing recovery.

sharply at American, the nation’s third-biggest airline. American canceled more than 300 flights last week, and the new week began no better. On Monday, American canceled 113 flights, or 6.1 percent of its total. Other than its regional-flying affiliate, American Eagle, which had 13 cancelations, no other airline had more than eight, according to flighttracking service American operated more than 1,800 flights Monday, and just 51.1 percent arrived on time, by far the worst record among the nation’s five-biggest airlines. On-time arrivals by Delta and US Airways topped 93 percent, while United and Southwest were 88 percent, according to FlightStats.

American and parent AMR Corp. sought Chapter 11 protection in November. Travelers have grown accustomed to flying on airlines that are under bankruptcy protection — United, Delta and US Airways all went through Chapter 11 last decade and they survived — but passengers might not put up with unreliable service. Experts including American’s former chief, Robert Crandall, believe that passengers will “book away” and skip American. AMR declined to comment on booking trends. But after a weeklong barrage of bad publicity, it released new information to bolster its argument that it is the victim of a work slowdown by pilots. American said that since March, the percentage of

result in a charge of about $35 million in the fourth quarter. For fiscal 2012, it anticipates about 30 U.S. store closings. Staples also expects 30 stores will be scaled down and stores being relocated. In Europe, the store closures are expected to occur before the end of fiscal 2012. The company has also tapped John Wilson to serve as president of Staples Europe. Wilson succeeds Rob Vale, who is retiring. The retailer says its U.S. retail and online businesses will now be run by Demos Parneros. Joe Doody will continue to lead the North American contract and businesses, and will assume leadership of supply chain and customer service operations in North America. Staples expects its actions to result in charges of $145 million to $195 million by the end of fiscal 2012. It also foresees a third-quarter goodwill impairment charge of $790 million to $850 million within its European

retail and catalog businesses. The company says it is still looking into additional operational and strategic opportunities for its European operations, which includes the potential sale of its European printing systems business. It anticipates taking a third-quarter charge of $15 million to $20 million as it classifies the European printing systems business as discontinued operations. The chain will also take a charge of $20 million by fiscal 2012’s end as it rebrands its Australian business. The Framingham, Mass., company anticipates annual savings of about $250 million by the end of fiscal 2015. Staples’ stock slipped 5 cents to $12.30 in premarket trading. Its shares hit a 52-week low of $10.57 in late August and peaked for the year at $16.93 in March. The company has stores in 26 countries in North and South America, Europe, Asia and Australia.

Pilots say American is ready to resume contract talks

DALLAS (AP) — There could be progress in breaking the standoff between American Airlines and its pilots, which appears to have caused a spike in canceled and delayed flights. American formally asked the pilots’ union to resume negotiations on a new labor contract. A spokesman said the union board will meet Wednesday to decide on the next step. Pilots and management at American have been bickering for years, but the conflict came to a head this month when a federal bankruptcy judge allowed the airline to break its contract with pilots. American set new pay and work rules that could lead to outsourcing more flying to other airlines. Almost immediately, delays and cancelations rose

pilots calling in sick has been between 19.7 percent and 32.9 percent higher than in the same month last year. And so far in September, the number of delays caused by pilots asking for precautionary maintenance checks is already nearly double the number in all of September 2011. The reports spiked in mid-August, when pilots rejected American’s last contract offer, and again starting in early September, after the bankruptcy judge ruled against the union. Pilots’ union spokesman Tom Hoban said pilots are required to log all maintenance issues, including those reported by flight attendants or even passengers. And pilots might be acting cautiously, he said, because American “has gone

Roswell Daily Record The Stars Show the Kind of Day You’ll Have: 5-Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3-Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult

ARIES (March 21-April 19)  You are riding the crest of a wave. Take advantage of an opportunity that appears out of the blue. Your vision for what could occur probably is more of a possibility than you might imagine. Tonight: Where your friends are. TAURUS (April 20-May 20)  Zero in on what you know is effective when dealing with an elder or respected authority figure. In some way, you might want to be more authentic. There could be an element of resentment that surrounds you. Do not lash out. Tonight: Out with loved ones. GEMINI (May 21-June 20)  Your ability to get past an immediate issue emerges. You see what many people don’t — an alternative path. Do not hesitate, even if this way might appear offbeat. If you think it could end a problem and be successful, why not do it? Tonight: Burn the candle at both ends. CANCER (June 21-July 22)     Allow your imagination to come forward, and approach a situation very differently. A partner, associate or dear friend actively might be giving you feedback and direction. Use care with anger, whether it is yours or someone else’s. Stay neutral. Tonight: Put on some music. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)  Deal with a partner directly, or else the mood could


turn ugly. In discussions, you’ll realize that you have many more options than you initially thought. A neighbor or sibling could be difficult as well. Bypass this person. Tonight: Be a duo. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)  Others flock to you. With one exception, everyone seems upbeat and friendly. Be careful with angry words, as they could be remembered for a long time. Curb your spending for now, at least until you feel more confident. Tonight: Sort through invitations. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)  You could be taken aback by a situation. It is rare to find you speechless. Deal with strong feelings first, and allow more compassion to flow between you and someone else. Concentrate on a project you want to finish. Tonight: Put your feet up. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)  Your creativity rises to an unprecedented level. Your way of handling anger might work for you, but not others. Keeping your feelings to yourself could cause depression. The question is: How do you express them in an appropriate manner? Tonight: Take a midweek break. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)  Try to establish better communication and a sense of community with others. Your way of thinking and handling a matter could change radically after getting input from others. An older friend could be difficult. Tonight: You do not need to go far. CAPRICORN (Dec 22-Jan. 19)  Be aware of how much you indulge your-

self right now. Ultimately, you might justify indulging a friend or loved one, but ultimately it impacts you the same way. Be careful when expressing your displeasure with someone. Tonight: Return calls. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)  You are in your element, though it is clear that someone else does not realize it. You might want to discuss a matter involving a friend at a distance; perhaps it is time for a trip. Once you seem more available, so will the other party. Tonight: Do some shopping you have been putting off. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)  Know when to back off and say “enough.” You have experienced a lot of frustration lately. Having someone else add to the disagreeable commentary might be too much. Let someone know what your boundaries are. It is important for both of you. Tonight: Chill with friends.

Brooklyn, Barclays Center bracing to steal show

Consider Madison Square Garden on watch. Luring the Nets from New Jersey was only Step 1 in Brooklyn’s metamorphosis into an entertainment hot spot. Next up for the borough, a ruthless bid in stealing the spotlight and the stars from MSG, New Jersey’s Prudential Center, and any other venue that books boldface names in music and sports. There’s a new kid in town, folks, a state-of-the-art arena in Brooklyn that is gobbling up acts at an alarming rate. Jay-Z, Lady Gaga, Rihanna and Andrea Bocelli are just a few of the marquee attractions coming to the new Barclays Center, a facility that will house the NBA’s Brooklyn Nets and so much more. College basketball is on the way, as are the Harlem Globetrotters and World Wrestling Entertainment, and before the lockout was announced, an NHL preseason game was even on tap. Indeed, it appears Barclays has balance and boom in its acts, and will stop at nothing as it quickly makes a sudden statement that it is a desired destination in an attractive borough. And the other facilities in and around New York may never be the same again. “In the past, Brooklynites had to leave our borough for world-class entertainment and sports and head over to Manhattan, the Bronx, Queens, Nassau County ... Newark or East Ruther ford,” Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz said. “Hello. Not anymore.” Brooklyn is going hard and if this current clip keeps up, it may become the No. 1 tour stop in the region. Jay-Z, the Nets’ part owner and hip-hop icon, will christen the Barclays Center with eight sold-out shows opening Friday. Holla! “Without Brooklyn, I would not be standing here right now,” Jay-Z said at a Barclays Center press conference. He’s not alone. Barbra Streisand, a Brooklyn native like Jay-Z, will perform for the first time in her native borough Oct. 11.

New Mexico Environment Department – Ground Water Quality Bureau

Notice is hereby given pursuant to AP Photo NMAC, the following Ground Water Discharge Permit

This Sept. 20 photo shows workers sweeping the plaza in front of the main entrance to the Barclays Center in the Brooklyn borough of New York. Consider Madison Square Garden and The Rock on watch. There's a new kid in town, folks, a state-of-the-art arena in Brooklyn that is gobbling up acts at an alarming rate. These megastar acts will raise the curtain on what Barclays expects to become a 220event-a-year center, and create a little competition with the world’s most famous arena. The budding Barclays-MSG bidding war, in fact, is already more heated than the KnicksNets rivalry. The Golden Gloves finals dumped MSG for the first time in its 86-year history for the 19,000-seat Barclays. Bocelli had played nine straight holiday shows at MSG before bolting this year for a Dec. 5 concert at Barclays. Other defections from MSG and New Jersey arenas include college basketball’s Coaches vs. Cancer tournament, the Legends Classic and the Atlantic 10 tournament. But without question, none of the other facilities are intimidated by Brooklyn. This is after all, the New York market we’re talking about, and there will always be plenty of acts to book. Robert Sommer, president of Rock Entertainment Management at the Prudential Center, declined comment. And MSG insists it doesn’t feel threat-

ened by the younger, hipper arena at all. “While we always respect any competition, The Garden will always be The Garden,” MSG President and CEO Hank Ratner said. “Madison Square Garden is located in the heart of New York City, sitting on top of the busiest transportation hub in the nation, and has been a destination for New Yorkers and visitors to the city for over 130 years. The Garden is New York’s living room, we host over 400 events annually, and are in the midst of a comprehensive, top-to-bottom transformation that has already received amazing feedback from fans.” The world’s most famous arena underwent an $850 million upgrade that gutted the arena from the ground up — all without changing the building’s familiar hatbox-shaped exterior. Madison Square Garden was completed in 1968 and had not had a major upgrade since 1991. And, let’s not forget, the Garden is the Garden. There’s no price tag, after all, on the legendary sports moments and the iconic concerts that called MSG home. Ali

vs. Frazier. Willis Reed limping through the tunnel and onto the court for the 1970 NBA Finals. Mark Messier and Stephane Matteau leading the Rangers to the Stanley Cup in 1994. Billy Joel and Bruce Springsteen rocking the joint. Ricky Nelson’s Garden Party. On and on. “You can bring a new venue into another borough, but you can’t erase history,” said Sammy Steinlight, a former MSG executive, now of Steinlight Media. “You can’t just instantly have a brand. It takes time, it takes years. It takes really special and unique moments created over time.” Barclays is trying to speed up the pace. Yet, not every act is choosing only one stage. The Who is booked to play Nov. 14 at Barclays, Dec. 5 at Madison Square Garden, and Dec. 6 at the five-year-old Prudential Center in Newark. While WWE remained committed to booking events at Madison Square Garden, the WWE’s own Brooklyn Brawler should feel at home when the sportsentertainment promotion holds its monthly pay-per-view event Dec. 16 at Barclays.

Entertainment notebook: New ‘Bachelor’ named

LOS ANGELES (AP) — ABC says the next star of “The Bachelor” will be Sean Lowe, who was dumped on “The Bachelorette.” The network says the 28-year-old Dallas businessman will be the one doing the choosing when “The Bachelor” returns for its 17th edition. On the eighth edition of “The Bachelorette,” Lowe confessed his love for Emily Maynard but was eliminated just before the finale. ABC says Lowe is ready to look for love again and confident he will find his soul mate. The 6-foot-3 Texan was a linebacker for Kansas State and worked in finance and insurance before starting a custom furniture business. “The Bachelor” returns in January.

Judge orders tests in Hemsley death

EL PASO, Texas (AP) — A Texas judge has ordered DNA testing on a man who claims to be the brother of the late “The Jeffersons” star Sherman Hemsley. Richard Thornton is challenging the validity of Hemsley’s will, which names the actor’s longtime manager, Flora Enchinton

Thornton, of Philadelphia, sought the DNA testing and must provide results by Oct. 15. Hemsley was born in Philadelphia but had lived in El Paso for the past 20 years.

Virginia, Roswell, New Mexico, sell and convey all of the rights, title and interest of the above-named Defendants, in and to the hereinafter described real estate to the highest bidder for cash in lawful currency of the United States of America. This sale was previously scheduled to take place on April 26, 2012. The sale may be postponed and rescheduled at the discretion of the Special Master. The property to be sold is located at Blue Mountain Road and North Main Street, Roswell, New Mexico, 88201, being tax parcel number 10-24332, (if there is a conflict between the legal description and the street address or tax parcel number, the legal description shall control) and is more particularly described as follows:

Lot five (5) Sam's Club Subdivision, in the City of Roswell, County of CHAVES and State of New Mexico, as shown on the Official Plat filed in the Chaves County Clerk's Office on May 19, 2005 and recorded in Book X of Plat Records, CHAVES County, New Mexico, at Page 50B,

including any improvements, fixtures, and attachments. The property will be sold “as is,” without warranties, express or implied, subject to all taxes, utility liens and other restrictions and easements of record, and subject to a one (1) month right of redemption by the Defendants upon entry of an order approving sale. The foregoing sale will be made to satisfy a judgment in favor of the Plaintiff, Land Holding, LLC, rendered by this Court in the above-entitled and numbered cause on September 7, 2011, being an action to foreclose a mortgage on the above-described property. The judgment in favor of the Plaintiff is $2,622,071.39, and the same bears interest at the rate of 4% above a fluctuating “prime rate” per annum, commencing on July 19, 2011.

The property will be sold to the highest bidder for cash in lawful currency of the United States of America. In payment of a bid, the Special Master will accept only cash or a bank cashier's check issued by a federally chartered and insured bank or a New Mexico state chartered and federally insured bank or savings and loan association. The cash or cashier's check from the successful bidder must be received by the Special Master no later than 2:00 p.m. on the date of the Special Master's sale.

Plaintiff may bid and purchase the property at the Special Master's sale, may bid all or a portion of its judgment in lieu of cash towards the purchase price and may submit its bid verbally or in writing.

Proceeds of the sale will be distributed first to the Special Master to satisfy his fees, costs and expenses, and then to payment of the above-referenced judgment owing to the Plaintiff. Any excess proceeds will be distributed pursuant to further order of the Court. JARED KALLUNKI, Special Master Kallunki Law PC 200 W 1st St Ste 202A Roswell, NM 88203-4673 Telephone: (575) 208-4469
