Historical Society honors Silent Servants NOAH VERNAU RECORD STAFF WRITER

THE VOICE OF THE PECOS VALLEY
The Historical Society and Foundation for Southeast New Mexico honored three Silent Servants for their contributions to the community during the 31st annual Heritage Award Dinner, Tuesday, at the Civic Center. Recognized for their dedicated service to youth in Roswell and the surrounding area, the honorees were longtime dance instructor Bobbi Alcorn, Assurance Home director Ron Malone and Leadership Roswell executive director Rick Kraft. Historical Society admin-
istrative director Roger Burnett said the Society’s board of directors could not have chosen three better individuals to honor for their service to the community. “We call them Silent Servants because they are silent, they go about their job without making a big deal about it,” Bur nett said. “They were chosen for what they’ve done in the community, and basically, one of the things was that they haven’t had a lot of recognition. So it’s a good feeling to have the opportunity to recognize these people. “I think everybody likes to be recognized. Some peo-

ple crave it and they go out of their way to do things, but other people just go about doing their job and contributing to the community without expecting anything in retur n. I think these are three of those type of people.”
Malone, one of the founding members of the Assurance Home board of directors in 1975, worked as a drug abuse counselor, a mental health counselor and a social worker before becoming executive director in 1980. In 2007, Malone helped found the James Ranch Youth Shelter, a See SILENT, Page A3

Sometimes those can prevent a team from winning, but that wasn’t the case for the Roswell boys soccer team on Tuesday.

Border Patrol agent shot, killed on duty
NACO, Ariz. (AP) — A Border Patrol agent was shot to death Tuesday in Arizona near the U.S.-Mexico line, the first fatal shooting of an agent since a deadly 2010 firefight with Mexican bandits that spawned congressional probes of a botched government gun-smuggling investigation.
The agent, Nicholas Ivie, 30, and a colleague were on patrol in the desert near Naco, Ariz., about 100 miles from Tucson, when shooting broke out shortly before 2 a.m., the Border Patrol said. The second agent was also shot, and was reported to be in stable condition Tuesday afternoon.
identified the agent who was wounded, nor did they say whether any weapons were seized at the site of the shooting. At a press conference in Naco, an FBI official said the agency still was processing the crime scene and it might take several days to complete. The FBI and the Cochise County Sheriff’s Office, which is also investigating, declined to say whether investigators have recovered guns or bullet casings. No arrests have been made, but authorities suspect that more than one person fired at the agents. The last Border Patrol agent fatally shot on duty

WASHINGTON (AP) — There’s more to tonight’s presidential debate than just the 90 minutes onstage. For the campaigns, it’s a three-part performance: Part I: Aw-shucks time Setting low expectations can help a so-so performance seem like a success. So in the days before their first meeting, President Barack Obama called Republican challenger Mitt Romney “a good debater” and deemed his own skills “just OK.” His aides groused that Romney got more rehearsal time, while Obama was busy being president. For his part, Romney praised Obama as “a very eloquent, gifted speaker.” See DEBATE, Page A3

St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church, 505 N. Pennsylvania Ave., will hold its 5th annual Blessing of the Animals on Sunday at 2 p.m. The Rev. Dale W. Plummer, St. Andrews rector, will officiate. “We do this in honor of St. Francis,” he said. St. Francis of Assisi is the patron saint of animals and the environment. Catholic and Anglican churches hold ceremonies for animals on his feast day, Oct. 4. Plummer is an animal lover and a longtime adherent to the blessing of the animals. He has conducted
blessings for at least 10 years in churches in Topeka and Junction City, Kan. He moved to Roswell more than a year ago and has upheld the tradition here. Plummer said that all pets are welcome to the ceremony on Sunday. The animals need not be limited to cats and dogs. Through the years, Plummer has blessed some pretty unusual animals. “I remember a little boy who brought in a tarantula in a box.” In the past, St. Andrews has also blessed an iguana, brought in by Cassie Gross of the Roswell Humane Society. “I remember a ferret and we have had some horses. Those we do in the parking lot,” Plummer said.
See LIONS, Page A3
Each animal receives an individual blessing, along with prayers for all God’s creatures, said Plummer. Last year some 50 pets and their humans attended the feast day celebration.
Plummer was also called upon to conduct the memorial services for Roswell’s, and America’s, hero dog Sage. He and his family have two dogs, one a rescued yellow Labrador and the second a red heeler pup. Plummer feels that the blessing of the animals is important. “... pets become members of our family, and from the theological perspective, we have stewardSee BLESSING, Page A3

Paws undergoes surgery Texas Tenors to perform
at NMMI, Saturday
JESSICA PALMER RECORD STAFF WRITER
Paws, the Chihuahua who suf fered severe bur ns as a result of abuse, underwent successful surgery to amputate his ears, Tuesday. Dr. Leandro Gutierrez of the Casa Querencia Animal Clinic, 1607 Fowler Road, said that Paws received third- and fourth-degree burns, on his ears, head and face after a 12-year old boy ignited the victim’s ears on Sept. 22. The amputation was necessary before the tissue became dead. Gutierrez said he had to cut the external portion of the ears off. The first amputation was required for medical reasons and the other cosmetic purposes.” The surgery lasted 43 minutes. Overall, the effect should be negligible. The loss of the external portion of the ear should not af fect the hearing, and although a dog’s ears provide some cooling. Gutierrez said that process is not as important in a little dog, like a Chihuahua, as it would be in a larger, more active dog. Gutierrez reported that this was the first case of this kind he’d ever handled. Paws, who was terrified at the time he was sent to the clinic by Animal Services, will undergo a period of recuperation when he will receive carefully regulated pain medication. “The amputation is quite painful,”

Paws is recovering well after his surgery.
Gutierrez explained. The Chihuahua will then start the socialization, or re-socialization, process in preparation for eventual adoption. “He‘s already getting better,” Gutierrez said. According to staf f, Paws was understandably defensive when he first arrived at the facility, but he has already started to build up a level of trust in humanity again. The 12-year -old boy who abused the dog, remains in custody at the Chaves County Juvenile Detention Center on charges of extreme animal cruelty. Gutierrez said he’s received a number of calls from concerned citizens who want to help. “The best thing they can do is send money to help the city pay the medical bills.” He recommended that people contact the clinic if they wish to donate and put money on Paws’ account.
The Roswell Symphony Orchestra will present “America’s Got Talent” vocal group The Texas Tenors at New Mexico Military Institute’s Pearson Auditorium, Saturday, at 7:30 p.m. Profits from this event will help support the RSO. The group will also perform the national anthem for the Roswell Museum’s Centennial Block Party celebration Saturday at 10 a.m. The Texas Tenors performed on “America’s Got Talent” in 2009 and were voted No. 1 Best Vocal Group. The group also holds the title of No. 1 Best Vocal Group in the history of “America’s Got Talent.” Fawn Alcorn-Pierce, RSO president, said The Texas Tenors perform everything from pop and country to classical and Broadway. “They’re very entertaining; they interject a lot of humor in with the show,” Pierce said. “It’s a very energetic show. I think most of the songs that they
will sing will be very recognizable and popular with the audience. They interact with their audience throughout the show quite a bit.” Pierce said the group has toured the globe and recently per for med in Branson, Mo., with the Atlanta Symphony. “Their voices are absolutely amazing,” she said. “They’ve all been trained professionally, and they do sing opera as well. It is just magical. They’re very good friends who got together to form this group back in 2009 when they decided to try out for ‘America’s Got Talent.’ So they’ve been friends for a long time, and that just comes across.” The group promotes support of Homes for our T roops, an organization that builds homes for disabled veterans, Pierce said. For tickets, call 6235882 or visit roswellsymphony.org. Tickets range in price from $25 to $60 and will also be sold at the door. The RSO will not be part of this performance.

Caleb McCall poses with his pig Thorn. The estimated 270-pound swine was named Grand Champion in the Market Swine show Tuesday.
Caleb’s Thorn takes top market swine honors Eleven-year-old Caleb McCall’s cross pig Thorn may be guilty of being a ham as he stole the show Tuesday and was named the Grand Champion Market Swine at the Easter n New Mexico State Fair Junior Livestock show. The Albuquerque resident is son of Kevin and Kirsten McCall and a member of Santa Fe County 4-H Club. He received help on how to feed his pig right, get him in shape and said that made a difference. His daily routine to get Thorn ready for the show included walking the pig a quarter of a mile. McCall has been raising pigs for four years and said much to his surprise he had his best finish today. He said his pig’s physique is what really stood out to the judges and helped him capture his first-ever Grand Champion title. “He’s really meaty, and
has a lot of muscle,” he said, before adding that his pig weighs about 270 pounds.
McCall’s favorite part of the day was of course being crowned victorious, but added he was a bit nervous competing due to the uncertainty of the outcome.
“It’s a grand drive,” he said. “And you don’t know if you’re gonna win or not.”
Dorian Blea’s cross pig HB was named Reserve Grand Champion. The 9year -old Fort Sumner resident is the son of Arron and Shara Cortese and a member of Valley Forge FFA. Dorian said that the most difficult part for him was maintaining a decent posture during the show. He said while showing HB, the bending that comes with guiding the pig put a strain on his back, but he overcame and had his best finish ever.
Third viewing today
tools were being stored and stole more than $4,000 worth of tools.
•Police responded to the old Rehabilitation Center, 31 Gail Harris St., where subjects broke windows, causing $500 worth of damage. •The police were called to the 600 block of West Greenbriar Street, after subjects damaged the mailboxes at three homes. The mailboxes were valued at $30 each. Anyone having information about these or any other crime should contact Crime Stoppers at 888-594-TIPS (8477). Callers may remain anonymous and could be eligible for a reward.
Joel Montoya, 19, is wanted in connection with a home invasion that occurred around 9 p.m. Sept. 26 in the 300 block of East Frazier. Originally reported as a burglary, officers were dispatched to the area of Southeast Main and McCune streets in reference to shots fired. The victim told police two masked subjects entered his house. He fought with the subjects and they fled. Montoya is described as 6 feet tall, weight 230 pounds, with brown eyes and hair. Anyone knowing Montoya’s whereabouts is urged to contact the Roswell Police Department, 624-6770, or Crime Stoppers, 1-800-594-TIPS.

Malone said. â€œI know a lot of people think that the adults and the Assurance Home do a lot for our kids, but I think that the reverse is also true, that our kids do a lot for us, and they inspire us, and they teach us how to lead our lives because they have come through such dif ficult times. â€œ... So they show the adults in this program how to get through difficult times. Itâ€™s a huge honor to work with these kids, and I know thatâ€™s really why Iâ€™m getting this award.

He has practiced law in Roswell for the past 30 years and is often called upon as a motivational speaker throughout New Mexico. â€œAs I look around the room, I see many other people who I think are more worthy of this than me. But I am honored that they have chosen to recognize me for this,â€? Kraft said. â€œIâ€™ve enjoyed the students who have come through, and being able to work with them and help equip them to do great things in the days ahead. â€œI came to Roswell 30 years ago, and I firmly believe that itâ€™s the best place in the whole world to live.

love for dance helped her to overcome the hardships of the Great Depression, opened the Alcorn Academy of Dance in Roswell in 1961. She strived to teach her students not only how to dance but how to persevere in life.

She continues to do volunteer work with the Easter n New Mexico Medical Center Auxiliary. â€œI spent 42 years with my studio working with children, and they did every bit as much for me as I hope I did for them,â€?

H.W. Bush described it. But maybe Romney and Obama should each take a deep breath. After all, how likely is it that either one will commit a big enough blunder to overshadow months of campaigning? Studies find viewers tend to see the guy they preferred going into the debate as the winner when itâ€™s over. â€œWhen is it that anybody performs so badly that youâ€™d just say, â€˜Oh, my God, I would never vote for this personâ€™?â€? said Rutgers University professor Richard Lau, who studies how voters decide. â€œSomeone would have to seem so incompetent. Thatâ€™s not going to happen.â€? Part III: The spin Itâ€™s not over when the candidates walk off stage.
Campaign aides and big political names will descend on the â€œspin roomâ€? to tell reporters and after-debate TV audiences that the other guy blew it, and why. Viewers may feel theyâ€™re judging what they saw and heard for themselves. But campaign strategists think getting the spin right goes a long way toward deciding who â€œwon.â€? According to Tad Devine, who was a top adviser to Democratic candidates Al Gore and John Kerry, pre-debate expectations and postdebate spin â€œcan take on more significance than what happened in the debate itself.â€? â€œEach one of those three is critically important,â€? he said.
As the kids from the Developmentally Delayed Preschoolers program in Dexter left the lunch area, they sang a song thanking the Lions Club for its efforts on the day. Gonzales couldnâ€™t help but tear up as the boys and girls sang in both English and Spanish before waiving goodbye. â€œTheir little faces and the
way they hug you,â€? she said fighting to hold back the tears. â€œThis is why we do it. Thatâ€™s our future generation, theyâ€™re going to run the world and if we give them a little boost, a little help ... they can get ahead.â€?

US begins flying Mexicans home Wednesday, October 3, 2012
SAN DIEGO (AP) â€” The U.S. government began flying Mexican deportees home on Tuesday in a twomonth experiment aimed at relieving Mexican border cities overwhelmed with people ordered to leave the United States. The flights will run twice a week from El Paso, Texas, to Mexico City until Nov. 29, at which time both governments will evaluate the results and decide whether to continue. The first flight left Tuesday with 131 Mexicans aboard. The flights are not voluntary, unlike a previous effort from 2004 to 2011 to deport Mexicans arrested by the Border Patrol during Arizonaâ€™s deadly summer heat. The U.S. government will pay for the flights, and the Mexican government will pay to return people from Mexico City to their hometowns, U.S. Immigration

was Brian Terry, who died in a shootout with bandits near the border in December 2010. The Border Patrol station in Naco, where the two agents shot Tuesday were stationed, was recently named after Terry. Terryâ€™s shooting was later linked to the governmentâ€™s â€œFast and Furiousâ€? gun-smuggling operation, which allowed people suspected of illegally buying guns for others to walk away from gun shops with weapons, rather than be arrested. Authorities intended to track the guns into Mexico. Two rifles found at the scene of Terryâ€™s shooting were bought by a member of the gun-smuggling ring

and Customs Enforcement said in a press release. ICE spokeswoman Nicole Navas said Mexicans from that countryâ€™s northern border states will not be eligible. ICE, which is managing the flights, said passengers will include Mexicans with criminal convictions in the United States and those who donâ€™t have any. They will be taken from throughout the United States to a processing center in Chaparral, N.M., before being put on flights at El Paso International Airport. President Barack Obamaâ€™s administration has made migrants with criminal convictions a top priority among the roughly 400,000 people of all nationalities who are deported each year. The Department of Homeland Security said nearly half of the 293,966 Mexicans deported in its last fiscal year had criminal convic-
tions in the United States. The policy has fueled concern in Mexican cities along the U.S. border that deportees are being victimized, turn to petty crime or are recruited by criminal gangs. In February, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano and Mexican Interior Secretary Alejandro Poire announced plans for a pilot program to begin April 1 but negotiations delayed the start until Tuesday. The Border Patrol will not participate in the experiment, which is called the Interior Repatriation Initiative, Navas said. Under a previous effort, some Mexicans who were arrested by the Border Patrol in Arizonaâ€™s stifling summer heat were offered a free flight to Mexico City, but they could refuse. The flights became a key piece of Border Patrol enforcement in Arizona.
being investigated. Critics of the operation say any shooting along the border now will raise the specter those illegal weapons are still being used in border violence. Authorities set up a checkpoint on a dirt road about seven miles southeast of Bisbee. A Border Patrol truck and another vehicle carrying two portable toilets were allowed to drive past the roadblock. Agents at the checkpoint declined to comment and barred reporters from going farther. Two helicopters from federal immigration agencies could be seen from a distance circling the area. And a fugitive-chase team could be seen staging on a roadside. The area near the shooting is scattered with
houses, trailers and ranchettes. Mesquite trees and creosote bushes dot the landscape, and a mountain range stands nearby to the west. The U.S. government has put thousands of sensors along the border that, when tripped, alert dispatchers that they should send agents to a particular location. The agents were fired upon in a rugged hilly area about five miles north of the border as they responded to an alarm that was triggered on one of the sensors, said sherif fâ€™s spokeswoman Carol Capas. It is not known whether the agents returned fire, she said. Border Twenty-six Patrol agents have died in the line of duty since 2002.

Take the time to vote in all races on the ballot DENISE TORRES AND JAMES HALL N.M. JUDICIAL PERFORMANCE EVALUATION COMMISSION
Franklin Delano Roosevelt said, “Nobody will ever deprive the American people of the right to vote except the American people themselves and the only way they could do this is by not voting.” This year, we hope every eligible voter will take the time to cast a vote in the Nov. 6, 2012, election. The Judicial Performance Evaluation Commission recently completed its evaluations of Supreme Court Justice Richard C. Bosson, and Court of Appeals Judges Roderick T. Kennedy and Michael Vigil who are scheduled to stand for retention. Under the state’s constitution, these three appellate judges must receive at least 57 percent voter approval to remain on the bench.
Unlike other elected officials, these individuals are not running against an actual opponent. Instead, they are asking voters to allow them to remain in their current positions on the bench. Judges and justices standing for retention typically do not make campaign speeches, take a position on issues, or run advertisements. They run on their record of performance; however, many voters may not know where to look for information about their performance so they may make an informed decision. That is where the Judicial Performance Evaluation Commission can help. JPEC was established in 1997 by the New Mexico Supreme Court as a nonpartisan volunteer commission charged with providing voters with fair, responsible and constructive evaluations of individual judges seeking retention, and providing judges with useful

infor mation concer ning their performance. We evaluate judges in four main areas: 1) fairness, 2) legal knowledge, 3) communication skills and 4) preparation, attentiveness, temperament and control over the proceedings. To do this, the JPEC reviews information from several sources: written opinions, caseload statistics, interviews, judges’ self-evaluations and independent surveys. The results of confidential midterm surveys from past years are also reviewed. Our evaluations are based on the overall performance of the justice or judge instead of focusing on specific decisions or opinions. The JPEC then produces a narrative for each appellate judge with a recommendation of “retain,” “do not retain,” or “no opinion.” In 2012, the commission makes the following recommendations to voters:
• Honorable Justice Richard C. Bosson, Supreme Court of New Mexico – Retain • Honorable Judge Roderick T. Kennedy, New Mexico Court of Appeals – Retain • Honorable Michael Vigil, New Mexico Court of Appeals – Retain Our retention recommendations are not intended to imply that every judge received excellent or perfect marks from all groups surveyed. Instead, they indicate that their overall ratings were sufficient to recommend retention and that they responded positively to suggestions for improvement based on confidential mid-term evaluations. The narratives, recommendations and complete statistical survey results are available on the JPEC web site at www.nmjpec.org, or can be requested in writing by calling 505-827-4960. It is important that citizens
take the time to review the information the JPEC has provided so that they can make an infor med decision and cast a vote in the November election. Those votes determine whether the appellate judges will be retained for another term. The Judicial Per for mance Evaluation Commission encourages every voter to do their part in improving our judiciary by making their voice heard. Each vote does count, so please vote in all races and ballot measures, including the judicial retention elections.

Not a kinder, gentler Ahmadinejad
What was likely Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s final address at the United Nations as president of Iran can best be described as a rambling, quasi-Marxist lecture in support of a global “new order” sans Western powers whose allegiance, he argued, is to “the devil.” It was the Iranian leader’s eighth address to the General Assembly, with his final term in office scheduled to end next year. Ahmadinejad is a mouthpiece of an iniquitous regime — and we need to listen very carefully to what he’s saying. The tone of the speech was perhaps less fiery than previous addresses in which he had denied the existence of the Holocaust and espoused conspiracy theories to explain the terror attacks on Sept. 11, 2001. But make no mistake about it: the Iranian leader’s speech was no less disturbing than past diatribes — and not because it fell on Judaism’s holiest day, Yom Kippur, as has been suggested. Ahmadinejad, who appeared downright bored by questions over Iran’s nuclear ambitions, successfully fielded substantive questions during his New York trip. His speech fell in line with the mullahs’ view of Utopia, in which oppressive, theocratic regimes reign supreme. He praised his country’s so-called “morality” and “compassion” and got in more than a few jabs, referring to Israelis as “uncivilized Zionists” and slamming Western “intimidation by nuclear weapons and weapons of mass destruction.” Iran leads the world in per capita executions and the execution of minors — as well as in the imprisonment of dissidents, which include religious minorities such as Christians and Baha’i. Most recently, Christian pastor Youcef Nadarkhani, who was initially accused of apostasy, was freed after being incarcerated for nearly three years. Nadarkhani’s arrest stemmed from complaints that educators at his sons’ school were forcing Quran lessons on his boys. He was later arrested for allegedly attempting to convert Muslims. Iran has also resurrected death threats first made in 1989 against Salman Rushdie, author of “The Satanic Verses,” since protests in the Middle East have spread over an obscure YouTube film depicting Islam’s prophet Muhammad. The bounty on Rushdie’s head has only increased, and Iran’s president mocked the author during interviews last week, grinning as he asked where the author is now. So much of the Iranian population is under the age of 30. We have seen many of them risking their lives in 2009 to protest a rigged election and confronting a mullahcracy, an enemy of its own people. Thus far Iran has not needed to invoke America, Europe or Israel as an excuse to hang homosexuals, stone women for alleged infidelity, execute dissenters or otherwise abridge basic concepts of justice and freedom. Paired with Iran’s proxy wars — carried out by Hamas and Hezbollah — and a repeated threat to annihilate Israel, Ahmadinejad’s final U.N. speech actually was extremely dangerous. Yet the Iranian leader received applause from at least some of the diplomats who did not join the U.S. delegation in boycotting the speech. Guest Editorial The Orange County Register DEAR DOCTOR K: I went to the doctor complaining about pain in my abdomen, and he diagnosed me with diverticulitis. I don’t know the first thing about this condition. DEAR READER: Diverticulitis is a disease that affects your colon, or large intestine. This long, muscular tube constitutes the final portion of your intestinal tract. Diverticula are sac-like pouches that protrude from the colon. Many people develop diverticula as they grow older, but most of the time you never know you have them because they don’t cause symptoms. Sometimes, diverticula can cause bleeding. There may be no pain, just blood that starts
Debates are important opportunities for Romney Mitt Romney’s main advantage in his first debate with President Obama today may be that the president will be speaking without a teleprompter. His second advantage is the president’s record and how he has failed to fulfill many of his promises. While the president will probably recycle his class war fare themes, Romney should focus on the president’s domestic failures and on Republican initiatives that have worked in the past. We Americans didn’t just crawl out of a cave. There is history. He might start with what has happened since the 2010

According to a survey by examiner.com, “... the job market in states with new Republican governors is improving a full 50 percent faster than the job market nationally.” Impressive, right? This is what can be accomplished when you either cut spending, lower
It’s not clear why some diverticula become infected and inflamed while others do not. Inflamed diverticula may or may not bleed. But as you know, they can sure cause pain. The pain is usually most pronounced in the lower left part of the abdomen. Fever is also common. Other symptoms may include urinary urgency or frequency, nausea, loss of appetite and fatigue. Some patients have constipation, others diarrhea. If the infection in the diverticula spreads into the blood, you can get a lot sicker. Your blood pressure can drop, you can get very lightheaded, you can start shaking uncontrollably — and you can even die. I
taxes, or both. Romney might also remind the estimated 50 million who will watch the presidential debate that the point of cutting taxes is to leave more capital in the hands of individuals and businesses, the real job creators. More money in private hands means more private jobs. That formula has not only worked for Republican governors, it has worked at the federal level when John F. Kennedy and Ronald Reagan tried it. Romney must emphasize that reduced government spending is the key to a revived economy. He should promise to accept the
nearly lost a relative this way. So pain in the abdomen, particularly if is accompanied by the other symptoms of diverticulitis, should never be ignored. Since bacteria are responsible for the inflammation, antibiotics are the cornerstone of treatment. Resting your intestines can also help. That means sticking to a diet of clear liquids for a few days. Then you can gradually add soft solids and resume a more normal diet over a week or two. If your diverticulitis is severe, or you’re at risk for complications, you may need surgery. Diverticulitis tends to recur. That’s why prevention is a key

best ideas of Obama’s Simpson-Bowles Commission (except tax hikes), and submit the recommendations to Congress for a vote with no amendments allowed. Public pressure would help pass it. Romney should alert voters to the fact that higher taxes are coming, something Democrats, with the exception of Walter Mondale, won’t do. In addition to the huge tax increases, thanks to Obamacare, that will occur if the Bush tax cuts are allowed to expire, five major tax increases are scheduled to take effect

Oct. 3, 1987 • It took awhile, but the Goddard Rockets showed Roswell folks they can play football — in the rain, yet. The Rockets almost waited too long before wrestling a 21-6 Homecoming victory away from the Los Alamos Hilltoppers Friday night. But it wasn’t because they weren’t trying. “I told you Los Alamos was a good football team,” coach Jim Hite said, savoring his Rockets' third straight victory. “They came out intent on winning the football game. They drove down the field on us and controlled the football. Out offense played a good game the second half, but it’s hard to do anything when you don’t have the football.”

The recommendation is 38 grams of fiber a day for men age 50 and under and 30 grams a day for older men.

We will have to see what money is available next month.” Here’s an extract from m y fir s t co l um n on t he issue: “The point needs to be made up front that VA doctors, nurses and clinical personnel were very c o u rt e ou s , h e l pf u l a n d credible. Problems arose w i t h u p p e r e ch e l on administrative personnel. I encountered a veteran wh o w a s 1 0 0 p er c en t combat disabled/homeb o u n d ( VA r a te d ) .

Many people experience constipation or increased intestinal gas when they increase their fiber intake. The best way to avoid that is to start with low doses and add fiber to your diet gradually. It will reduce your risk of recurrent attacks of diverticulitis. (Dr. Komaroff is a physician and professor at Harvard Medical School.

in January. As John Kartch of Americans for Tax Reform has written for FoxNews.com, these tax increases, strategically timed to kick in after the election, include (1) a 2.3 percent tax on medical device makers, which “... will raise the price of ... every pacemaker, prosthetic limb, stent, and operating table”; (2) a tax increase on medical bills. “Currently, Americans are allowed to deduct medical expenses on their 1040 form to the extent the costs exceed 7.5 percent of one’s adjusted gross income,” writes Kartch. “The new Obamacare provision will raise that threshold to 10 percent, subjecting patients to a higher tax bill. This will hit pre-retirement seniors the hardest.” (3) The amount of money one can place in Flexible Spending Accounts will be capped at $2,500. “These pre-tax accounts, which currently have no federal limit, are used to purchase everything from contact lenses to children’s braces. With the cost of braces being as high as $7,200. ... The cap will also affect families with special-needs children ...;” (4) A surtax on investment income that “will take a minimum of $123 billion out of taxpayer pockets over the next 10 years.” (5) A Medicare payroll tax increase, which,

aren’t allocating enough money for medical care in rural NM? Doesn’t it seem totally illogical to require housebound, 100 percent disabled veterans to travel almost 500 miles (roundtrip) for medical/dental care?’ The director of the ‘Fee Base’ authorizations stated (twice) that as long as th e v et e ra n m et th e special requirements of t h e sp eci al cir cu m stances/conditions of Fee Base regulations, payment to local medical providers wou ld be app r oved . Housebound rating was not necessary if the veteran was 100 percent service connected disabled. Also, approval for local care (Fee Base) was not based on funds availability. It was based only on meeting the criteria for spe ci al con sider at ion s gi ven i n t he r egu l ations.‘Funding or lack of m on ey i s n ot an issu e.

“ W h en f ol lowi ng t h e procedures to get my veter a n ap p r oved for h is local dental care, he was questioned (by approving dentist) a couple of times why he couldn’t make the trip from Roswell to Albuqu e r qu e, even aft er h e explained he was 100 percen t ser vice c on n ec ted disabled/housebound (wh ich wasn ’ t ev en a requirement for approval). Then he was asked if he was in distress and really needed the care immediat e ly. Th e r eason ?

according to Kartch, “... soaks employers to the tune of $86 billion over the next 10 years.” Romney should ask: Do you really think Washington can do a better job of caring for people and making their health decisions than individuals and their doctors? Romney might also pledge to work to find cures for the most expensive diseases, such as heart disease, cancer and Alzheimer’s. Curing diseases will cost far less in the long run than treating them. Romney should appeal to America’s greatest strength — its people. Vice President Joe Biden recently suggested it is “patriotic” to pay more taxes. True patriotism flows from liberty, not government dependency. We the people are America. Government isn’t America. With a $16 trillion debt and more coming if Obama is re-elected, there is no wealth left to “spread around.” Borrowing from China isn’t the answer. Relying on the economic engine that has always sustained this country is the answer. It’s called capitalism. Distributing the wealth is socialism and Romney should call it that. How important are these debates? The country’s survival rides on them. (Write to Cal Thomas at: Tribune Media Services, 2225 Kenmore Ave., Suite 114, Buffalo, N.Y. 14207.

Wednesday, October 3, 2012
Marianne Shirley Stevens was bor n in Freeport, Texas, on Jan. 7, 1929, the third child of Robert Kirby Shirley and Scyrine Carpenter Shirley. She passed away on Sept. 11, 2012, in Roswell, surrounded by her children, Norman Lawrence Stevens, of Houston, David M. Stevens, of Roswell, and Patricia A. Stevens, of Orange County, Calif. Marianne was preceded in death by her mother and father, and her sister Jane Shirley De Veaux. She is survived by her children and their spouses, Nancy D. Williams, of Houston, Vonna D. Stevens, of Roswell, and Robert Minkin, of Orange County. She is also survived by her brother Robert Kirby Shirley Jr. and his wife Ruth, of Austin, Texas, as well as her grandchildren, John Carpenter Stevens, of
Houston, Katherine D. Stevens, of London, Delaina Stevens and Nikki Stevens, of Austin, and numerous nieces and nephews. Marianne was raised in Great Neck, N.Y., where her father was a senior executive of Freeport Sulfur Co. She married Nor man L. Stevens Jr. on Sept. 30, 1950. They both were educated at, and graduated from, Syracuse University in upstate New York, where Marianne majored in liberal arts with a minor in fine arts. Marianne never lost her affinity for the southwestern United States and she and Nor m moved to Roswell courtesy of Gulf Oil, with their young son Larry, in 1954. Marianne was a passionate woman. Without question her lifelong passion was antique wooden carousels, which began while she rode carousels as a young girl in Coney Island, N.Y. She bought her first wooden carousel horse in 1964 in New York City as a toy for her young children. It was badly burned and required complete restoration. That purchase and restoration birthed a passion that never left her. Over the years, as her passion grew, she bought and sold numerous complete antique carousels. At one time she was the largest collector of antique
carousels in the world. Marianne led the crusade to preserve that uniquely American art form — the carousel. She began her preservation efforts when antique carousels were being neglected and even burned for firewood. Without her efforts this American art form would surely have been lost forever. She was a talented artist, wood carver and painter, and used those talents to personally restore many of the carousels and their wooden animals she owned over the years. Carousels she preserved and once owned are now operating at the Children’s Creativity Museum in San Francisco, Greenfield Village in Dearborn, Mich., and Pepper mint Park in Roswell, with another in the planning stages in the tri-cities area of Washington and Oregon. Wooden carousel animals she preserved and personally refurbished now grace museums and private collections around the country. In 1973, Marianne personally restored and gave to the city of Roswell the antique wooden carousel at Pepper mint Park for the enjoyment of the people and children of the community she lived in for almost 60 years. She also was a board member of the Roswell Zoo, raised the money for the acquisition of the train at the zoo and
donated all of the track for the train. Marianne was a cofounder of the National Carousel Association and the American Carousel Society, where she served as the organization’s chairman for many years. She was the guiding light in these national organizations that benefited from her knowledge and passion for the preservation of the carousel art form. Marianne counts many of their members among her closest friends. Marianne also co-authored, with William Manns of Santa Fe, the definitive work Painted Ponies: American Carousel Art, the most authoritative book on antique wooden carousels ever written. Until her death she was still actively involved in writing about antique carousels, authoring articles for numerous national publications. She was also recognized as one of the leading authorities on carousel history and value. Marianne was a consultant to the Smithsonian Institution, to which she donated multiple carousel animals to be preserved for all to enjoy. She was also a consultant to Sotheby’s, Bonham’s and Butterfield auction companies. The industry will, no doubt, miss her greatly. Marianne was also passionate about other art
forms and gained immense pleasure and satisfaction out of her favorite works, with which she surrounded herself. Additionally, Marianne was passionate about thoroughbred race horses and horses in general, but here in Roswell her passion was for animals without owners. She loved animals and supported the Roswell Humane Society by helping the society acquire the land where it is currently located, and raising the money to construct the building and improvements there. She loved to rescue animals. Marianne’s family would like to thank the doctors and staf f of (Roswell) Lovelace Regional Hospital and Pecos Valley Rehabilitation Center for their compassionate care in the last stages of Marianne’s life. All of those whose lives Marianne touched will miss her deeply. She enriched all of us. Please sign the guestbook for Marianne at lagronefuneralchapels.com. A memorial service celebrating the life of Marianne Stevens will be held on Saturday, Oct. 13, 2012, at 11 a.m., at Waymaker Church, 202 S. Sunset Ave. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to The Roswell Humane Society Inc., 703 E. McGaffey St., Roswell, NM 88201.

err on the side of optimism. News from a distance could shake you up, but ultimately it is very good. Do not fight the inevitable. Tonight: Where the action is. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) In the long run, sensitivity to those in charge will allow you to have greater independence. You quickly build others’ trust. You possess many abilities and talents, but the most effective one is your ability to magnetize others. Tonight: Out late ... very late. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Your vision defines what will occur. Use this skill and incorporate it with your ability to communicate. Your imagination comes into play when dealing with a loved one. This person has a very artistic outlook and temperament. Enjoy the results. Tonight: Feed your mind. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) Let someone else make the first move. You might be overreacting and say too much, which will cause yet another problem. What you perceive as the issue might be very different from what the other party thinks is wrong. Incorporate your listening skills, and you might be surprised by what you hear. Tonight: Go with a suggestion. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) A friend means a lot to you — and you to him or her. Be careful, as this person’s feelings possibly could develop into more. Make sure this also is what you want. Extremes and idealism mark your thoughts. A child or loved one could delight you with his or her mischief. Tonight: Sort through possibilities. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) Listen to news with an eye to applying this knowledge to your domestic life.

Goddard volleyball coach Sheri Gibson talked to her team about finishing off its opponent after its win over Clovis last week. The Rockets received the message, loud and clear. They had a chance to finish of f Portales in three sets on Tuesday and they did just that to complete a sweep and climb to 10-4 on the year. “I think our confidence is back,” Gibson said. “We had a rough couple of matches after we came back from Moriarty, but the confidence with the girls, you can see it. “Even in the hallways in
school and how we come into the gym for practice, I think they found it. They’ve got their confidence back and they know that they can play when they want to play together.” Having that confidence back is what helped Goddard win despite a drop off in offensive production. This win was about the defense. “We’re moving our feet a See ROCKETS, Page B6

Roswell gets win Local Briefs
TUESDAY ON THE PITCH
Roswell didn’t play well, according to coach Heather Baca, but the Coyotes still battled for a 3-1 win over Hobbs at the Coyote Den, Tuesday. Roswell won 25-23 in the first set before Hobbs won the second set 25-18 to knot the match at 1-1. The Coyotes then won the third set 25-20 and the fourth set 25-18 to get the win. “The only thing I’m really pleased with is that we won,” Baca said. “We did not play well at all. It was a little sluggish. We were pretty tired tonight.” Emily Ellington-Romero led the Coyotes (7-4) with 10 kills and seven blocks. Alexis Florez had seven blocks and Ali Castro had 15 digs and two aces.
NATIONAL BRIEFS CABRERA MOVES CLOSER TO AL TRIPLE CROWN
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Miguel Cabrera had two hits, drove in two runs and pressed ever closer to the first Triple Crown in 45 years Tuesday night. Now, the question facing the Detroit Tigers star is whether to play in the regular-season finale against Kansas City. Cabrera said he’d do what manager Jim Leyland asks of him. Leyland said he’ll play Cabrera if he wants. It seems nobody is quite sure what will happen until the lineup card is posted. “You know, he writes the lineup and I do what he wants,” Cabrera said after the AL Central champion Tigers lost 4-2 to the Royals. “I play ball. He’s the manager, he’s the boss. So whatever he wants to do, we’re going to do. I play for the manager.” With one game remaining in the regular season, Cabrera leads the American League in average (.331), home runs (44) and RBIs (139), putting him on the brink of becoming the first Triple Crown winner since Boston’s Carl Yastrzemski in 1967. “I’ve not made the decision, but I will. I’m going to think about it tonight. I’m not exactly sure what I’m going to do,” Leyland said. “If he wants to play, then he’ll play.” Alcides Esocbar and Jeff Francoeur homered for Kansas City on Tuesday night, and Salvador Perez had the go-ahead RBI in the fifth inning. Jeremy Guthrie (5-3) lasted six innings to improve to 5-0 with six nodecisions in his final 11 starts, the Royals winning 10 of them. Doug Fister (10-10) allowed three runs on seven hits in 4 1⁄3 innings for Detroit. Cabrera had a single in the first inning and a basesloaded single in the third before a fly ball to right field in the fifth. He was replaced by Omar Infante in the bottom half of the frame. Leyland said he gave Cabrera the option of being DH or taking the night off, but Cabrera wanted to play in his usual spot. The Angels’ Mike Trout and the Twins’ Joe Mauer are chasing him for the batting title, while the Rangers’ Josh Hamilton is one back for the home run crown.
SPOTLIGHT ON SPORTS 1993 — Toronto becomes the first team in AL history to have teammates finish 1-2-3 in the batting race. John Olerud leads the league with a .363 batting average, Paul Molitor finishes at .332 and Roberto Alomar at .326.

CARLSBAD — It is natural in sports, particularly at the high school level, to have lulls during a game. Sometimes those can prevent a team from winning, but that wasn’t
the case for the Roswell boys soccer team on Tuesday. The Coyotes (10-6) dominated play in the first half and built a big lead, which allowed them to pick up a 3-1 win despite some miscues in the second half against the Cavemen. Early on, Roswell’s patented pres-
Trainer suspended Reed gets 21-year ban, $23K fine
ALBUQUERQUE (AP) — A horse trainer has been suspended from racing in New Mexico for 21 years and fined $23,000 after four horses he trained tested positive for an exotic, potent painkiller. The Albuquerque Journal reports that the New Mexico Racing Commission recently announced sanctions against Jeffrey Heath Reed, whose five first-place finishers in May 25 qualifying races for the $600,000 Ruidoso Futurity tested positive for the drug dermorphin. Dermorphin, said to be 40 times more power ful than morphine, is derived from the skin of a tree frog native to South America. Like other painkillers, it can be used illicitly to mask an injured horse’s pain, but at the risk of a catastrophic breakdown that can injure or kill the horse and its rider. Racing Commission executive director Vince Mares said problems with urine and blood samples from a fifth dermorphinpositive horse trained by Reed led stewards to dis-
miss that case. Two of Reed’s dermorphin-positive horses also tested positive for stanozolol, an anabolic ster oid that can build muscle, boost red blood cell pr oduction and increase bone density. Reed was given a 20year suspension for the dermorphin counts, and an additional year for the stanozolol infractions. At a weekend hearing at Zia Park Racetrack in Hobbs, stewar ds also sanctioned trainer Carlos Sedillo, who had two horses test positive for dermorphin during the futurity trials. Sedillo was suspended for five years, fined $10,000 and ordered to for feit $4,200 in purse money. Reed and Sedillo have 20 days to appeal their sanctions to the governorappointed New Mexico Racing Commission, which has been cracking down on horse doping.

Dwight Howard participates in Lakersâ€™ 1st practice
EL SEGUNDO, Calif. (AP) â€” Dwight Howard participated in his first practice with the Los Angeles Lakers on Tuesday, going through a lengthy workout with no apparent concerns about his surgically repaired back. Howard worked out with the Lakersâ€™ new starting five during much of the afternoon practice at the Lakersâ€™ training complex, running offensive drills with Steve Nash and playing a little 1-on-1 against Pau Gasol. After finishing up the workout with drills in the Lakersâ€™ new Princetoninflected offense, he got a few quick pointers from Kobe Bryant. Howardâ€™s performance was encouraging to the Lakers, who are being careful with their new franchise center five months after surgery to repair a herniated disc in his back. â€œI didnâ€™t surprise myself,â€? Howard said. â€œIâ€™ve been working hard to get on the court. I want to continue to work hard, (and) we havenâ€™t had any setbacks, so I want to continue to do whatever I can to get on the court.â€? The six-time All-Star center hasnâ€™t committed to any timetable for his debut with the Lakers, who acquired him in a fourteam trade in August. The Lakers already have announced Howard wonâ€™t play in their first preseason game in Fresno against Golden State on Sunday night, but Howard sounds determined to suit up with his teammates at some point before the regular season opener Oct. 30 against Dallas. â€œHopefully Iâ€™ll be back for some preseason games,â€? Howard said. â€œI think weâ€™re going to need it for chemistry and all that stuff, but like I said, Iâ€™m not going to rush. Iâ€™m going to continue to practice. Weâ€™ve had some great practices. Today was really good, so Iâ€™m happy.â€? The Lakersâ€™ second exhibition is in Ontario, Calif., on Oct. 10 against Portland. Howard has been working out six days a week at the Lakersâ€™ training complex to prepare for the season under the watch of the clubâ€™s medical staff and his own team. The results are promising to his teammates, who were impressed by Howardâ€™s fitness in his first team action. Howard participated in three-on-three, two-on-two and one-on-one drills with the Lakers, who didnâ€™t run any drills with serious contact or 5-on-5 scrimmages. â€œHe worked just as much as anybody else, so that was good,â€? Gasol said. â€œI didnâ€™t expect that to happen today. ... Heâ€™s a great player, a tremendous force, and it feels good to have him here.â€? Howard knows the Lakers have plenty of work to do if they hope to grasp the new offensive concepts being installed by veteran assistant coach Eddie Jordan. Bryant, who already sees Howard picking up the offense, is grateful to see evidence of Howardâ€™s work ethic in his first day.
â€œIt was very beneficial,â€? Bryant said. â€œEven though he canâ€™t really do anything thatâ€™s contact-related, heâ€™s still able to go through all the drills offensively, and the schemes we want to do, and kind of work through the Princeton offense, so it was very productive.â€?

2-2 Cowboys heading into bye and brutal stretch
IRVING, Texas (AP) â€” The Dallas Cowboys certainly picked a bad time for an awful game, one that will stick with them for an extended period. This is going to be a long brutal stretch in a season that is already having an alltoo-familiar feeling. And thatâ€™s not good. Dallas (2-2) goes into its bye week after Tony Romoâ€™s five interceptions in a 34-18 loss to Chicago. Then comes a challenging stretch with four of five games on the road, including three current division leaders. â€œWhen you have a game like last night you want to be playing right now, but thatâ€™s not how it works in this league,â€? coach Jason Garrett said Tuesday. Even without a game this week, there wonâ€™t be a lot of times to make a lot of corrections. Cowboys players had their normal day off Tuesday, a day before their only practice of the week precedes their four-day break mandated by the collective bargaining agreement. Their next game is Oct. 14 at Baltimore, and their only home game before the second half of November is Oct. 28 against the New York Giants. The defending Super Bowl champions are 3-0 at Cowboys Stadium and will be looking to avenge a season-opening home loss to Dallas. When the team landed in California for training camp in late July, one of the first things seven-time Pro Bowl tight end Jason Witten said was that 2012 â€œcanâ€™t be the same old story.â€? But one-fourth through the regular season, things donâ€™t really seem to have changed for a team that has been distinctly average for so long. The Cowboys were 8-8 last season. After alternating wins and losses so far this season, they are 122-122 in regular-season games since the start of 1997 with only one playoff victory. After Monday nightâ€™s loss, Witten said it â€œhas to be a wakeup callâ€? with another upand-down start. â€œWe have regroup, get healthy, evaluate it and stick together,â€? Witten said. â€œThereâ€™s no finger-pointing. We have great guys that are working hard. Ultimately, it comes down to results.â€? They were also 2-2 going into their bye last year after a home loss when two interceptions thrown by Romo were returned by Detroit for touchdowns, similar to what the Bears did. The Lions wiped out a 24-point deficit in the second half last year. Lance Briggsâ€™ 74-yard return in the third quarter Monday night, on a ball that was poked out of Romoâ€™s hands and could have easily been ruled a fumble, put Chicago up 24-7. On its 11 possessions against the Bears, Dallas scored two touchdowns â€” one in the gameâ€™s final minute with backup quarterback Kyle Orton â€” and a field goal. There were the five picks after punting the first three times they had the ball. Even with a season-low two penalties, correcting something that had been a big problem, there was no way to overcome five turnovers. The Cowboys had only one takeaway, a fumble by Jay Cutler on DeMarcus Wareâ€™s fifth sack of the season. But Briggsâ€™
interception came on the very next play. Jacksonville is the only NFL team that has played four games and scored fewer than the 65 points by Dallas. The Cowboys are averaging 364 total yards per game, 296 passing and only 68 rushing. â€œWhat you have to do is keep banging away at it,â€? Garrett said. Even though Romo has completed twothirds of his passes (101 of 151) and is on pace for a career-high 4,592 yards passing, he has five touchdowns with eight interceptions â€” only two fewer picks that he had in 522 attempts last season. He has been sacked eight times after being taken down a career-high 36 times last season. Running back DeMarco Murray, who ran 20 times for 131 yards in the victory at the Giants, has 41 carries for 106 yards in the three games since with two 11-yard runs. Garrett on Tuesday was calm and collected, as usual, when discussing the latest loss. While some things need to change, the coach said his demeanor wonâ€™t. â€œOne of the things Iâ€™ve learned a long time ago, really in life, as a player and certainly as a coach, is you have to be who you are,â€? Garrett said. â€œI think anybody who knows me, coaches and players on our football team, knows the passion and intensity I have for this game, and for coaching and teaching, trying to get this team right.â€?

Hagerman won the first set 2523, but Melrose answered by winning the second set 25-20 and the third set 26-24. The Bobcats came back, though, winning the fourth set 25-20 and the fifth set 15-13. â€œWe played up and down,â€? said Bobcat coach Monica Morales. â€œWe came out not back in the first set, but the second and third were rocky. Even the fourth a little bit. â€œWe kind of felt like our backs were against the wall and came back pretty intense. We finally decided to play in the end of the fourth set and the fifth.â€?
