Obama, Romney clash on economy

EAST HAMPTON, Conn. (AP) — The 180-year-old New England company that made the little bell that rings every time an angel gets its wings in the Christmas classic Itʼs a Wonderful Life has resumed production in time for the holidays, four months after its 19th-century factory burned down. - PAGE A7

DENVER (AP) — In a showdown at close quarters, President Barack Obama and Republican Mitt Romney sparred aggressively in their first campaign debate Wednesday night over taxes, deficits and strong steps needed to create jobs in a sputtering national economy. “The status quo is not going to cut it,” declared the challenger.

FACTORY RESUMES PRODUCTION

October 4, 2012

Obama in turn accused his rival of seeking to “double down” on economic policies that actually led to the devastating national

downturn four years ago — and of evasiveness when it came to prescriptions for tax changes, health care, Wall Street regulation and more.

The economy dominated the evening, as it has the race for the White House all year. Pre-debate opinion polls showed Obama with a slight advantage in key battleground states and nationally.

Romney said he had plans to fix the economy, overhaul the tax code, repeal Obama’s health care plan and replace with a

better alternative, remake Medicare, pass a substitute for the legislation designed to prevent another financial crash and reduce deficits — but he provided no new specifics despite Obama’s prodding.

Said Obama, “At some point the American people have to ask themselves: Is the reason Gov. Romney is keeping all these plans secret, is it because they’re going to be too good? Because middle class families benefit too much? No.” See DEBATE, Page A3

A’S TAKE AMERICAN LEAGUE WEST

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — The Oakland Athletics captured the AL West with another improbable rally in a season full of them, coming back from four runs down and a 13-game division deficit to stun the two-time defending league champion Texas Rangers 12-5 on Wednesday. Josh Hamilton dropped a fly ball in center field for a two-run error that put the A’s (94-68) ahead 7-5 in a six-run fourth inning. While Hamilton’s Rangers (93-69) are headed to the new one-game, wild-card playoff, the A’s get some time off before ... - PAGE B1

TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — Iranian authorities used aggressive measures Wednesday in an attempt to halt the nosedive of the country’s currency, making arrests, vowing to stamp out sidewalk money changers and warning merchants against fueling the mounting public anger over the economy. There were unconfir med reports of sporadic violence. Associated Press photos showed riot police blocking a street with the charred hulks of a garbage can and a motorcycle that had been set on fire. Smoke was rising from the area in central Tehran near the main bazaar. The sweeping responses to the freefall of the rial — which has lost more than a third of its value in a week — underscored the worries for Iranian leaders after months of dismissing the West’s economic squeeze seeking to rein in Tehran’s nuclear program. A declining currency causes shifts in an economy such as making imported goods more expensive. Although the currency crisis is blamed on a combination of See IRAN, Page A3

Feds face tough territory in border agent shooting probe

NACO, Ariz. (AP) — Investigators searching a stretch of the U.S.-Mexico border for clues into the fatal shooting of a Border Patrol agent face a treacherous territory that is heavily used by drug smugglers, offers many hiding places and is close enough to Mexico for traffickers to make a quick getaway.

Whoever killed Agent Nicholas Ivie and wounded another agent in the sparsely populated desert in southeaster n Arizona

early Tuesday may have done just that. Those who carried out the shooting near Bisbee, Ariz., probably had time to cross the border in the early-mor ning darkness before authorities could seal off an escape route, said George McCubbin, president of the National Border Patrol Council, a union representing about 17,000 border patrol agents.

the community who sought to counter the growing public perception that the energy industry is doing a poor job and does not care about doing what’s right. Riese, a Houstonbased geoscientist, has worked in minerals and petroleum as a geologist, geochemist and manager for more than 40 years. He has more than 30 years of teaching experience at various universities and is presently an adjunct professor at Rice University, Colorado State University and the University of New Mexico. Riese, who in a series of presentations will speak to more than 3,000 students in the Pecos Valley by the end of today, said that it was important to him that his audience would be made up of “non-scientists and non-engineers.” The Pecos Valley Energy dinner had more than 250 teachers from the Roswell Independent School District, he said. “When you look at oil spills, you can’t just consider the spills all by themselves,” he said. “Why are we exploring for oil? Why are we exploring for gas? It’s part of our national energy mix — oil, gas, coal. “From there, you start thinking about what drives our economy. The U.S. provides 25 percent of the world’s GDP. We can do that because we are so well endowed and blessed with natural resources, in particular energy resources. Our carbon-based resources have huge, huge energy

Madison Belcher’s goat was named Grand Reserve Champion in Wednesday’s show. The 12-year-old is a resident of Texico and the daughter of Elizabeth and Matt Belcher. She represented the Pleasant Hill 4-H Club. She’s been showing goats for four years and said that experience helped alleviate some of the nerves she had coming into the competition. As far as her goat is concerned, she said having competed with that particular goat in the State Fair in Albuquerque helped prepare it for this show as well as future shows. “It helps,” she said. “It gives the goat a little bit more experience so it can understand what it has to do in the competition.”

“Not everyone is going to agree with some of the conclusions I’m going to of fer, that’s fine,” he said. “But they will have the data that I base my conclusions on, and then they can go inform others, discuss with others, debate with others, that’s all I want.”

In addition to the data Riese said support how “nature heals” in regards to the magnitude and frequency of big oil spills over the past 40 years, he shared his views on export oil and federal government regulations. He said Saudi Arabia might need half of its production by 2035 and all of it by 2050.

“No export oil. What does that mean to our energy balance and energy mix?” Riese said. “And there are regulations being passed by the EPA that will shut down existing coal plants on one hand, and preclude the building of new ones on the other. So what we’re doing is we’re shipping our energy advantage overseas, and we’re going to destroy our economy.” Riese will next speak at Pearson Auditorium today from 7 to 9 p.m., where an estimated 650 cadets will attend, leaving 530 complimentary seats available for the general public. No reservations are necessary.

Ivie and two other 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 that the government has installed along the border. The wounded agent was released from the hospital after undergoing surgery. The third agent wasn’t injured. Authorities have declined to provide other details, including what they believe prompted the shooting and whether the agents were ambushed. Still, they suspect that more than one person fired on the agents. No arrests have been made. The area historically has been popular with smugglers because U.S. 80 comes within several miles of the border, allowing backpack-toting smugglers to take loads of drugs to the highway for pickup by vehicles. The desert where the shooting occurred is dotted with creosote and other brushes that hamper visibility at ground level. Gullies and ridges also provide cover for smugglers. The area is part of the

nation’s busiest Border Patrol sector, which received additional agents and fencing as the federal gover nment sought to improve border security in recent years.

To sneak drugs into the country, teams of smugglers who lug up to 40 pounds of marijuana each in backpacks made of burlap and flour bags typically have to either walk over the border or scale the fence that covers about 30 percent of the 2,000-mile U.S.-Mexico border.

Agents patrol the fence by driving along roads beside the barriers and monitor the area through surveillance cameras mounted on nearby towers and sensors placed along smuggling routes after the fence.

Border Patrol agents often are posted several hundred feet and even miles away from the border to look for people who sneaked into the country. Once smugglers get past several layers of enforcement, they typically hook up with a driver on a highway or ranch road and use back roads to make their way around Border Patrol checkpoints.

Cael’s turkey, Bob, top bird What a dif ference a few months make. Cael Alderete’s turkey Bob was named Reserve Best of Barn in the poultry show in the Chaves County 4-H and FFA Fair in August. Bob came back and was crowned Best in Barn in the bird show Wednesday with little help from Alderte. “I didn’t do anything different,” the 11-year old Roswell resident said. “I just let him grow and try not to let him get beat up [by other Alderete’s turkeys]. Alderte said he was nervous entering the competition that his effort, or lack thereof, wouldn’t pay off. It did, literally, and now he can continue competing next year. “I was nervous that I wasn’t going to make a

sale with anybody,” he said. “But I did and it felt good because now we have money to do it again next year.” Alderete is the son of Joel and Kelly Alderete and a member of the Barn Buddies 4-H Club. Zachary Weber said, “Thirteen years of hard work finally paid off,” as his Plymouth white rock hen was named Reserve Best in Bar n. The 19year-old Hobbs resident is a member of TVC 4-H Club and appreciated the level of competition elevating from the past year. “I thought it was very good this year,” he said. “ I thought all the kids’ animals from all the counties that came to this show actually did spruce their quality back up this year compared to last year.”

At times the debate tur ned into rapid-fire charges and retorts that drew on dense facts and figures that were difficult to follow. The men argued over oil industry subsidies, federal spending as a percentage of the GDP, Medicare cuts, taxes and small businesses and the size of the federal deficit and how it grew. Obama said his opponent’s plan to reduce all tax rates by 20 percent would cost $5 trillion and benefit the wealthy at the expense of middle income taxpayers.

Authorities in other drought-stricken states say they’ve seen similar fence cuttings, along with thefts of livestock and other materials as ranchers struggle to stay in business. In some cases, stealing a neighbor’s grass may be the only way for a rancher to feed his livestock, but victims say their livelihood is being threatened, too. “We’ve had around five cases in the past few weeks where someone says his cattle just happened to walk through a gate that just happened to be open or an instance where a fence was clearly cut,” Lucero said. “And I suspect there are more cases, but they aren’t being reported.” Ranchers from Missouri to Texas and west into New Mexico have sold off huge

GENERAL

The former Massachusetts governor and businessman added that Obama’s proposal to allow the expiration of tax cuts on upper -level income would mean tax increases on small businesses that create jobs by the hundreds of thousands. The two rivals quickly got to the crux of their race — Romney’s eagerness to turn the contest into a referendum on the past four years while the incumbent desires for voters to choose between his plan for the next four years and the one his rival backs. Romney ticked of f the dreary economic facts of life — a sharp spike in food stamps, economic growth “lower this year than last” and “23 million people out of work or stopped looking for work.” But Obama criticized

Romney’s prescriptions and his refusal to raise taxes and said, “if you take such an unbalanced approach then that means you are going to be gutting our investment in schools and education ... health care for seniors in nursing homes (and) for kids with disabilities.” Not surprisingly, the two men disagreed over Medicare, a flash point since Romney placed Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan on his ticket. The president repeatedly described Romney’s plan as a “voucher program” that would raise out-of-pocket costs on seniors. Romney said he doesn’t support any changes for current retirees or those close to retirement. Romney also made a detailed case for repealing Obamacare, the name

after the elections. Public grumbling has grown steadily louder over a punishing combination of a falling currency and rising prices, which have put some staples such as chicken and lamb out of reach of many low-income Iranians. Earlier this week, a petition signed by about 10,000 workers was sent to the labor minister to complain that even paying rents has become a struggle. At Tehran’s bazaar — the traditional business hub in Iran’s capital — merchants appeared to stage widespread closures to protest the stumbling economy. The sprawling bazaar has played a critical role in charting Iran’s political course — leading a revolt

that wrung pro-democratic concession from the ruling monarchy more than a century ago and siding with the 1979 Islamic Revolution. The semiof ficial Mehr news agency quoted police Col. Khalili Helali as saying the bazaar was not officially closed and that authorities will take action against many merchants who have shuttered their shops. Meanwhile, anti-riot police patrolled streets in central Tehran where freelance money dealers work. Police units also were deployed in key shopping areas. Iran’s economy minister vowed to break the black market, which effectively sets the exchange rates.

portions of their herds this year because the worst drought in decades dried up their pastures and they couldn’t afford to buy food for their animals. While grass thefts might seem relatively harmless, ranchers say they threaten the businesses and animals that are left. “If they don’t have enough grass on the ranch, they have to sell their cattle,” said Leon Porter, a rancher in Corona, who sold half his herd this year to keep going. It’s not clear just how many grass thefts have happened since most aren’t reported, and even when they are, most don’t result in arrests, said Myles Culbertson, executive director of the New Mexico Livestock Board. “It’s extremely hard to make a case. You almost have to have an eyewitness,” he said. In Texas and New Mexi-

co, local authorities have asked the U.S. Border Patrol and other federal agencies to help watch for suspicious behavior around ranches, including cattle rustling and grass theft. “We are seeing a pattern. It’s hard to monitor since we are busy trying to catch DUIs and other crimes, so we need more eyes and ears,” said Luna County Sheriff Raymond Cobos. Cobos recently unveiled a plan involving a number of local and federal law enforcement agencies in the fight against ranchrelated property crimes. His deputies also are taking classes on cattle branding to help identify stolen livestock. “We see people with cowboy hats transporting cattle and hay all of the time, and we think nothing of it,” Cobos said. “But now if we see them at 3 a.m. ... we have to stop and think: Is there something wrong?”

OPINION

Abandoned by GOP, Heather Wilson fights on

In recent weeks, national Republican officials have delivered what were widely interpreted as back-to-back blows to former GOP Congresswoman Heather Wilson’s bid for the Senate seat being vacated by longtime Democratic U.S. Sen. Jeff Bingaman, who is retiring in January. First the Republican Senatorial Committee announced that it was reclaiming $3 million it had earmarked for Wilson’s race against her Democratic rival, District 1 Congressman Martin Heinrich. Then, insult to injury, the Republican National Committee let it be known that three top RNC staffers who had been working in New Mexico on behalf of the party’s candidates preliminary to the general election were being transferred to Nevada and/or Colorado. To hardened political observers the message seemed clear: National Republicans were cutting their losses in New Mexico and transfer-

ring resources to other states where their odds look better. It’s a cynical business, politics, and with most polls showing Wilson not doing all that well this time around that could be exactly what we have going on here. But if that is the game being played by national GOP Pooh Bahs, the former congresswoman was apparently not told about it because she continues to shell out money sufficient to fill our television screens with campaign commercials. One such ad features Wilson in biographical mode as she remi-

nisces, teary eyed, about telling her grandfather that she planned to become the first member of her family to graduate from college by attending the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs. Wilson’s campaigns always feature mention of her status as an Air Force veteran, but this particular campaign reminder might strike some veterans as paradoxical since it coincides with Senate Republicans’ maneuver last week to kill the Veterans Jobs Corp Act on a procedural vote just before they went home for their pre-election vacation. Unemployment among Gulf War-era, Iraq and Afghanistan veterans hovers around 11 percent. Wilson’s second TV commercial, since being left to her own devices by Republican big shots, is a basic slash-and-burn attack ad calculated to cause her Democratic opponent to don a hood whenever he deigns to slither out in public.

It’s a loathsome art, the attack ad, in this reporter’s opinion, and you would think candidates who sponsor them might themselves feel the need to don hoods before slithering out in public. But, as we are told every time the subject comes up, “They work!” Strangely, the attack Wilson is currently running against Heinrich is rather stale, both in format and substance (if “substance” is the word for it). The ad starts with a group of unknown and unidentified people. They could be voters or actors. Who knows? But each has a bone, real or imagined, to pick with Heinrich. Stranger still, the complaints Wilson’s ad has them lodge are almost, word for word, the same complaints a number of Mitt Romney’s ads have already ventilated. Even more bizarre, “adwatch fact-checkers” who keep tabs on

the truthfulness and accuracy of attack ads of this sort have pretty thoroughly judged them to be less than truthful and short on accuracy. Case in point: Wilson’s ad claims Heinrich “cut” $500 billion from Medicare, which is simply not true, as the folks at “Fact Checker” have amply demonstrated. What the Wilson ad relies upon here is Heinrich’s vote for President Obama’s health reforms. Under those reforms, billions of dollars are expected to be saved on expenditures to health care providers. Medicare beneficiaries, however, will experience no cuts in benefits. In short, it boils down to much ado about information purposefully misrepresented. Turns out, Heather Wilson can do that without the help of all those Republican Senatorial Campaign Committee folks. © New Mexico News Services 2012

Obama’s Cabinet mostly closed

As we have noted before, the day after he was inaugurated, President Barack Obama pledged to create “an unprecedented level of openness in government.” He launched his Open Government Initiative, with its own website: whitehouse.gov/open. The latest indication of how he has failed to live up to that pledge was revealed in a study by Bloomberg news service, “Untangling FOIA: An Analysis of Obama’s OpenGovernment Pledge.” FOIA stands for the Freedom of Information Act, which guarantees Americans access to their government’s documents. The FOIA mandates a response within 20 days for requests of administration travel documents. Bloomberg asked for the cost of travel by Cabinet secretaries and other top department officials. This is important because citizens need to know if these officials are being frugal and traveling only for official business, or jetting around at the taxpayers’ expense. Even if the president wins in November, some of these officials probably may be leaving soon, meaning that future disclosures won’t mean much. Of 20 Cabinet-level offices, only one responded on time — Karen Mills, administrator of the Small Business Administration. Five others responded, though late. They included Labor Secretary Hilda Solis, a former California state legislator, in 28 days; Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner, 43 days; and Gary Locke (2009-11) and Rebecca Blank, the president’s two secretaries of commerce, both in 45 days. The officials not responding at all included most of the heavy-hitters in the administration: Secretary of State Hillary Clinton; Secretary of Defense Robert Gates and his successor, Leon Panetta; Secretary of Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, whose authority is greatly expanded under the Affordable Care Act; Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano; Attorney General Eric Holder Jr., recently found in contempt of Congress for failing to disclose enough information in the Operation Fast and Furious scandal; and Secretary of Energy Stephen Chu, who was in charge when California solar -panel maker Solyndra blew $550 million in the taxpayers’ money, then went bankrupt. “Transparency is the most important thing the government can engage in to enhance public trust,” Judy Nadler told us; she’s senior fellow in government ethics at the Markkula Center for Applied Ethics at Santa Clara University. “One of the things the president mandated on coming into of fice was acting promptly on FOIA requests. This is of concern because it should not be difficult for people to see what’s going on in government. The FOIA was put in place for people to know what’s going on in terms of spending and policy.” Nadler has worked on the House Ways and Means Committee. She said that, based on her experience there, lower-level officials commonly fill out FOIA reports. But the person at the top is responsible for making sure the FOIA requests are met. The problem with stonewalling the requests is that the public trust is damaged. “The default position for many people is that the officials must be hiding something,” she said. “I don’t know if that’s true. But the lack of disclosure is troubling, whether it’s a city council member or a Cabinet member. The public has a right to know.” We hope this issue is brought up at during the first presidential debate, as well as the Operation Fast and Furious contempt citation. Justice Department Inspector General Michael E. Horowitz recently found “no evidence” Holder knew of the scheme to sell guns to Mexican drug lords, which led to the deaths of 300 Mexicans and U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry. Yet Holder still refuses to release crucial documents. Guest Editorial The Orange County Register

Government encourages dependency

“There are no jobs!” That is what people told me outside a government “jobs center” in New York City. To check this out, I sent four researchers around the area. They quickly found 40 job openings. Twenty-four were entry-level positions. One restaurant owner told me he would hire 12 people if workers would just apply. It made me wonder what my government does in buildings called “job centers.” So I asked a college intern, Zoelle Mallenbaum, to find out. Here’s what she found: “First I went to the Manhattan Jobs Center and asked,

DEAR DOCTOR K: I was recently diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes. Can you explain how diabetes affects vision? DEAR READER: Both of the common types of diabetes, Type 1 (which usually begins in childhood) and Type 2 (which usually begins in adulthood), can affect vision in several ways. After 20 years of having Type 2 diabetes, most people have eye problems. But the risk can be reduced, as I’ll explain. The most serious eye problem resulting from the uncontrolled high blood sugar levels that can occur with diabetes

At WorkForce1, the receptionist told me that she couldn’t help me since I didn’t have a college degree. She directed me to another center in Harlem. In Harlem, I was told that before I could get help, I had to come back for an 8:30 a.m. ‘training session.’” Our government helps you apply for handouts immediately, but forces you through

When your doctor looks inside your eyes, he or she looks for the telltale marks and scars that diabetic retinopathy leaves on the retina. If the fluid or blood leaks near the macula — the part of the retina responsible for sharp, central vision — sight becomes impaired. When fluid leaks into the center of the macula, it can swell, blurring vision. This is called macular edema.

At 9:15, Workforce1 directed 30 of us into a room where we were told that WorkForce1 directs candidates to jobs and provides a resource room with ‘free’ phone, fax and job listings and helps people apply for unemployment insurance and disability handouts.

Oct. 4, 1987 • Roswell’s freshmen and the Coyote junior varsity football teams each posted victories Saturday. The Roswell High Junior varsity blasted Portales, 42-0, while the freshman team clobbered the Portales frosh, 32-6. Mike Perry, with a 53-yard run and Damien Cheatem, with 16-yard scamper, put the junior Coyotes ahead in the first period of their game and Cheatem also ran a two-point conversion to give RHS a 16-0 lead in the first quarter. Larry Harrell scored on a nine-yard run in the second quarter and Cheatem scored from eight yards out in the third. Good defense stood out for the Coyote freshman team, too. Pete Lujan’s 60-yard run put RHS in front and David Tremonti caught a 40-yard pass from John Jones to make it a 12-0 game before Portales scored.

Breast cancer panel

Breast cancer is one of the leading causes of cancer death among women of all races. If you’re a woman over age 40, have a mammogram every 1 to 2 years or according to your doctor’s recommendation. Screening detects breast cancer in its early stages when there’s a good chance for a cure. October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month; encourage the women you love to get a mammogram if they have been putting it off. To learn more, visit ENMMC. com.

Senior Circle’s Healthsense at noon Thursday will host a breast cancer panel at the Wilshire Center, 2801 N. Main St., next to Family Dollar. On the panel will be Dr. Akbar Ali, surgeon specializing in breast cancer; Dr. Lubna Skally, radiation oncologist; Mag Martinez, director of radiation oncology; and Terry Anderson, director of radiology. A light lunch will be served. For more information, call 6232311. Healthsense is open to the public of all ages.

took notes. “One lady told me that she comes to WorkForce1 because it helps her collect unemployment. One asked another, ‘What do you want to do?’ The second laughed, ‘I want to collect!’ One told me, ‘I’ve been coming here 17 months; this place is a waste of time.’ “Finally, I met with an ‘adviser.’ She told me I lacked experience. I know this. I asked for any job she thought I was qualified for, and she scheduled an interview at Pret, a food chain that trains employees. At Pret, I learned that my ‘interview’ was just a weekly open house, publicized on the company’s website. Anyone could walk in and apply. Workforce1 offered no advantage. Despite my ‘scheduled interview,’ I waited 90 minutes before meeting a manager. He told me that WorkForce1 had ‘wasted my time, as they always do.’ He said, ‘They never call, never ask questions.’ He prefers to hire people who seek out jobs on their own, like those who see Pret ads on Craigslist.’” My inter n lear ned a lot from this experience.

be dependent. They incentivize people to take “free stuff,” not to take initiative. — It was easier to find job openings on my own. The private market for jobs works better than government “job centers.” Yet now New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg wants to expand Workforce1, claiming that it helps people “find real opportunities.” I bet he never sends people in to find out whether they really do. Once politicians figured out that welfare creates dependency and hurts poor people, they (logically) assumed that employment services and job training would help. Job training does help — when employers do it. But government does everything badly. GeorgiaWork$, a state program in that state, provided such poor training that only 14 percent of trainees were hired. The Comprehensive Employment Training Act operated more like a commercial for government handouts. It launched door -to-door food stamp recruiting campaigns, and gave people free rides to welfare offices. America now has 47 federal jobs programs. They fail. Yet politicians want more. They always want more. John Stossel is host of “Stossel” on the Fox Business Network.

When a damaged blood vessel closes, the retina tries to repair itself by sprouting new blood vessels to replace the damaged ones. That’s another thing your doctor is looking for when he looks in your eyes. Unfortunately, these new blood vessels grow abnormally and can cause serious problems. They can extend into the gel-filled compartment of the eye in front of the retina. If these fragile new vessels bleed, they can cause sudden vision loss. You can help prevent diabetic retinopathy by carefully controlling your blood sugar levels. The other key to prevention is an annual eye exam, which can detect even the earliest signs of retinopathy. It is particularly important to spot the growth of new blood vessels as early as possible, because they can be treated with lasers. Laser treatments are the standard of

care. Focal laser treatments seal off individual blood vessels in macular edema. This slows leakage and decreases fluid around the retina. Scatter laser treatment is used for advanced retinopathy. Laser burns in the outer edges of the retina prevent new blood vessel growth. A new class of medicines, called antiVEGF drugs, block a chemical signal that stimulates blood vessel growth. I’m proud to say that these powerful new drugs come from research done here at Harvard Medical School several decades ago.

OBITUARIES

Elma Jean Gay

Elma Jean Gay was born in Fredonia, Kan., on Aug. 16, 1919, to Elmer and Mabel McKinney who preceded her in death. She was the youngest of three sisters. Louise Gipe and Elizabeth Murphy also preceded her in death. Jean passed away Monday, Oct. 1, 2012, at the age of 93, with her husband William “Bill” Gay and son Richard Gay at her side at Sunset Villa Nursing Home. Jean is survived by her husband William Gay at their family home. Jean is also survived by two sons, Curtis Eugene Gay, of Denver, and Richard William Gay and wife Dianne, of Trenton, Texas; and daughter Kendra Susan Rhoades and husband Gary, of Burlington, Colo. Also surviving are four grandchildren, Joshua Adam Ray of Trenton, Heather Michelle Roots, of Bedford, Texas, Karah Lindsey Reygers and

husband Joseph, of Denver, and Kolby Lee Melia and husband Daniel, of Burlington; and seven great-grandchildren, Rachel Sincheff, Donovyn Adam Ray, Dyanna Marie Ray, Bailee Morgan Roots, Aaron Robert Rabour n, Benton Lee Melia and Abby Mae Reygers. Jean met William “Bill” Gay at Pittsburg State Teachers College. They courted for two years and then were married at 8:30 a.m., on June 22, 1941, at the Methodist Church in Fredonia, Kan. They worked at Boeing Aircraft as World War II was approaching. After assisting with the completion of the first 100 B-29s, Bill was no longer needed, so off to war he went. Jean then went to work at the modification center in Denver. After the war, Jean helped Bill obtain a bachelor’s degree from Denver University and a master’s degree at Pittsburg. Jean then went on to teach elementary school children for three years in Wichita, Kan., and 18 years in Denver. After teaching, she and Bill started their family. As a music major in college, she was prepared for 25 years as the church organist at Bethany Methodist Church in Denver, and five years at Trinity Methodist. Jean also had the opportunity to move to Australia with Bill as exchange

teachers. This experience was most rewarding. Jean’s two sisters attracted her to move to Roswell with her husband in 1983 for some 30 years of retirement. Having been a rockhound in Denver, she joined the Chaparral Rockhound Club, of which she was an avid member. During the years of service with the rockhounds, she served on the board, as club secretary and teacher in the lapidary class. She loved traveling and is a member of the Cactus Sam Travel Club. Every year they would travel to Quartzite, Ariz., with the rockhound group. They also traveled to various rock shows throughout the United States to show of f the beautiful rock displays she and Bill had put together. The family would like to thank the nurses and doctors who took excellent care of Jean while at Eastern New Mexico Medical Center and Sunset Villa Nursing Home. Funeral services are scheduled for 10:30 a.m., Thursday, Oct. 4, 2012, at Trinity United Methodist Church. The Rev. Glenn Thyrion of Trinity United Methodist Church will officiate. Friends may pay their respects online at lagronefuneralchapels.com. Arrangements are under the direction of LaGrone Funeral Chapel.

Cabrera’s crowning achievement

Roswell Daily Record

Miguel Cabrera

B

E-mail: sports@rdrnews.com

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Miguel Cabrera became the 15th player to win baseball’s Triple Crown on Wednesday night, the reluctant superstar thrust into the spotlight after joining an elite list that includes Mickey Mantle, Ted Williams and Lou Gehrig. Cabrera’s milestone wasn’t official until the Yankees pinch hit for Curtis Granderson in their game against the Boston Red Sox. Granderson had homered twice to reach 43 for the year, tied with the Rangers’ Josh Hamilton and one shy of Cabrera. Cabrera went 0 for 2 against the Royals before leaving in the fourth inning to a standing ovation. He finished the regular season with a .330 average, four points better than the Angels’ Mike Trout, his biggest competition for MVP. Cabrera was the runaway leader with 139 RBIs. Boston’s Carl Yastrzemski was the last player to achieve the Triple Crown in 1967. “I am glad that he accomplished this while leading his team to the American League Central title,” Yastrzemski said in a statement. “I was fortunate enough to win this award in 1967 as part of the Red Sox’s ‘Impossible Dream Team.”’ Commissioner Bud Selig also offered his congratu-

Oakland celebrates its 12-5 win over Texas, Wednesday. The A's clinched the AL West title with the win.

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — The Oakland Athletics captured the AL West with another improbable rally in a season full of them, coming back from four runs down and a 13-game division deficit to stun the twotime defending league champion Texas Rangers 12-5 on Wednesday. Josh Hamilton dropped a fly ball in center field for a two-run error that put the A’s (94-68) ahead 7-5 in a six-run fourth inning. While Hamilton’s Rangers (93-69) are headed to the new one-game, wild-card playoff, the A’s get some time off before opening the division series in their first postseason appearance since 2006. Both teams had to wait to learn their opponents from a pair of night games: Boston at New York, and Baltimore at Tampa Bay. The A’s would earn the

AL’s No. 1 seed if the Yankees lose, and open the division series at the winner of Friday’s wild-card playoff featuring the Rangers. If New York wins, Oakland would be the No. 2 seed and begin at Detroit. The A’s needed a sweep and they delivered to win their first division crown in six years and 15th in all. They overcame a five-game deficit in the final nine days and took sole possession of the West’s top spot for the first time this year. “It shows how important Game 162 is,” Oakland’s Jonny Gomes said. “I don’t think it took 162 to games to check the character of this ballclub.” Grant Balfour retired Michael Young on a fly to center for the final out, then raised his arms in the air as the A’s streamed out of the

you’re looking at one of the fastest kids in the state in the backfield. “And they have a couple of more who are close to as fast as he is. It never changes. I’ve never seen them change.” Jernigan isn’t wrong — the Wildcats (2-3) always seem to have big linemen, fast running backs and a smart quarterback. That fast running back this year — the one Jernigan called one of the fastest kids in the state — is Kamal Cass. He’s a 5-9, 163-pound junior and he leads the team in rushing at more than 120 yards per game.

“He’s obviously a very talented kid. And maybe the fastest kid in the state, and if he’s not, he’s sure real close to it,” Jernigan said about Cass. “Any play, any time, if he can put a foot down, he’s gone.

“He’s pretty fast and he’s just about everything for them. All the blocking schemes and everything are put together to get the ball to him. And he does a really good job.” “We couldn’t glue two of

our kids together and be as fast as he is,” he added with a laugh. In many ways, the two teams mirror each other. They both have a hard-

Arthur on Friday evening. The Dora Coyotes will square off against the Lake Arthur Panthers in a battle of 6-Man’s last two undefeated teams and the scoreboard operator will have a tough time keeping up with the fast-paced action. The Coyotes (5-0) enter the

contest averaging 69 points a game on offense, while the Panthers (5-0) put up 50 points a game. Lake Arthur coach Jose Cruz Porras said that tempo is key for his Panthers. “You would say (that this is going to be a high scoring game), yeah,” he said. “You

know what, we have to set the tempo. We know they are an explosive offense. They were contenders last year and we played them in the semifinals. It will be another good matchup between two good teams again this time.” With two high-powered offenses, the difference may come down to successful point-after conversions. Lake Arthur had struggled in that aspect heading into its game against NMSD last week, but, against the Roadrunners, the Panthers made three of their final four extra points (which count for two points in 6-Man), something Porras hopes to continue against Dora. “(Extra points) have been our Achilles’ heel this year.

That was one of our strong points last year, but we have struggled with that this year,” he said. “That has been one of our main focuses this week. We have to capitalize on those chances this week. “Those few extra points can mean the ballgame. I have been in games where that is a factor.” While the emphasis and attention will be on offense, Porras said the key to slowing down the Coyotes will be pressure. “We are just going to have to pressure their up back,” he said. “He is very elusive. I think we have coached (the kids) up well and they will do a good job of recognizing (formations and personnel).”

NATIONAL BRIEFS TEDDY WINS, FINALLY

WASHINGTON (AP) — Teddy wins! Teddy wins! For the first time, the Teddy Roosevelt mascot won the Presidents Race in the middle of the fourth inning at Nationals Park — a pursuit that drew attention even from a White House spokesman and Sen. John McCain. Teddy — Mr. Rough Rider — had never before won, losing more than 500 times since 2006, when the Washington Nationals baseball team began having races among 10-foottall foam renderings of Roosevelt, George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and Abe Lincoln at home games. The crowd cheered wildly Wednesday when Teddy triumphed in the last game of the 2012 regular season, which turned out to be a 51 victory for Washington over the Philadelphia Phillies. Teddy was helped when a green mascot wearing a Phillies jersey — a distant cousin of the Phillie Phanatic, perhaps? — knocked down the other three presidents. The game’s very next batter, Washington third baseman Ryan Zimmerman, hit a homer leading off the bottom of the fourth for the home team’s first run of the afternoon. The hitter after that, Michael Morse, doubled and eventually scored, too. Coincidence? Asked whether he’d been inspired by the outcome of the mascot race, Zimmerman rolled his eyes. “I am so glad Teddy won, so we can stop talking about Teddy. People get more excited for a mascot race than a game,” Zimmerman said, before adding in a voice drenched with sarcasm: “Yes, I’m excited Teddy won. I’m ecstatic.” Teddy’s triumph is the latest in a streak of unprecedented success for the Nationals. They clinched their first NL East division title Monday and are bringing postseason Major League Baseball to the nation’s capital for the first time since the Washington Senators lost in the 1933 World Series. The sport was missing from Washington for more than three decades until MLB moved the Montreal Expos to D.C. before the 2005 season.

He struck out in the fourth inning but remained in the game, allowing Leyland to remove him with two outs to another standing ovation from thousands of appreciative fans. Cabrera high-fived his teammates as he entered the Detroit dugout, then walked back to the top step and waved his helmet. When the milestone became official, it was displayed on the center field scoreboard to another standing ovation.

Bronco netters fall to Western Texas 3-0

NMMI struggled to find its rhythm on Wednesday and dropped its fourth WJCAC match of the year 3-0 to Western Texas at the Cahoon Armory. The Broncos fell behind early in the first set, only to battle back for a 22-18 lead after a four-point spurt. They couldn’t hold the lead, though, as the Westerners won three of four points to draw within two and then won four in a row — three on kills by Joelle Pospiech — to close out the set 25-23. In the second set, NMMI jumped ahead early, but couldn’t maintain the momentum. The Westerner offense produced a fourpoint run midway through, putting them ahead for good. After the Broncos drew within two at 2119, WTC (18-4, 4-1 WJCAC) won four in a row to win the set 25-19. The third set went back and forth throughout, but WTC finally got the upper hand on a four-point run that made it 16-13 Westerners. NMMI won three in a row late to make it 23-21, but the Westerners won two of the final three for a 25-22 win. Mattie Tigges led the Broncos (9-13, 1-4)

began dancing alone. Soon, the celebratory champagne and beer made its way to the field — and players sprayed it into the stands. Players came back onto the field almost an hour later to greet the fans still gathered along the top of the dugout. Oakland pulled off another remarkable performance in a season defined by thrilling walkoffs, rallies and whipped-cream pie celebrations by a team that was never supposed to be here. A club that trailed Texas by 13 games on June 30. A club with a $59.5 million payroll, lowest in baseball. General manager Billy Beane found ways to get a bluecollar franchise back to the playoffs for the first time since being swept by Detroit in the 2006 AL championship series. “It was all part of the plan,” Beane said before the game, plan-

“I would say without question he’s enjoyed it. How could you not enjoy what he’s done if you’re a baseball player?” Tigers manager Jim Leyland said before the game. “I would also add to that I doubt very much, knowing him, that he necessarily enjoys all the extra attention, and all the extra conversations he has to have, it’s kind of out of his realm in personality, to be honest with you.” Cabrera’s pursuit of history has occurred largely in the dark, though, overshadowed by thrilling pennant races, the sheer enor mity of the NFL — even the presidential election. An event that in other years might dominate headlines has been mostly cast aside. “The entire baseball world should be here right now,” said T igers ace Justin Verlander, the with 10 kills and six blocks. Agatha Gibbons had eight kills, Veronika Baric had eight kills and nine digs, Cara Salazar had 16 digs and three aces and Karra Day — who returned from a long hiatus after injuring the ring finger on her left hand — had 31 assists.

nosed, hard-hitting mentality, they both like to run the football and they both like to smash you in the mouth right out of the gate. Simply put, both teams are a reflection of their coach — Jernigan for the Rockets and Eric Roanhaus for the Wildcats. Jernigan and Roanhaus are longtime friends who have a deep-seated respect for one another. “I was a young head coach when I first got this job and we lost to Clovis the first year we were in 5A. Then the next year, we beat them twice and won the state championship. And the first guy across the field in both of those games that year was Eric Roanhaus,” Jernigan said. “He was shaking your hand and he didn’t have a bad thing to say about your kids or your program.

Brandon Moss drove in three runs, including a two-run single in a four -run eighth. Rookie Evan Scribner (2-0) left the mound to a standing ovation from the sellout crowd of 30,067 and wound up the winning pitcher. He allowed two hits and struck out two in three scoreless innings after replacing struggling starter A.J. Griffin. Jerry Blevins relieved Scribner and struck out Hamilton to end the sixth before allowing a leadoff single to Adrian Beltre in the seventh. Ryan Cook, pitching for a fifth consecutive game, replaced Blevins and gave up a double to Nelson Cruz before retiring the next three Texas hitters with

reigning AL MVP, who may soon watch that award get handed off to his teammate. Perhaps part of the void has to do with Cabrera’s very nature. He’s not the boisterous sort, never one to crave attention. He would rather hang out with a couple of buddies than stand in front of a pack of television cameras, answering countless questions about what makes him one of the game’s most complete hitters. “He’s not a talkative guy,” said Tigers catcher Alex Avila. “One, he does not speak English that well, but two, he lets his ability carry through.” It takes a special breed to hit for average, power and in clutch situations, which is why there have only been 14 players to achieve baseball’s version of the T riple Crown, an honor roll that includes

Norris then homered leading off the bottom of the eighth for his second RBI. It was his seventh homer and Oakland’s majors-leading 112th since the All-Star break. “Ever since Day 1 I’ve been here, it’s been, the A’s can’t compete with the payroll, can’t compete with this team or that team,” Norris said. “We’re better off if we’re down. It just gives us the extra energy. I hope they keep doing it.” The A’s join the NL West champion San Francisco Giants as division champions. The Bay Area is already buzzing about a possible Bay Bridge World Series like the 1989 championship swept by Oakland, one interrupted by an earthquake. Hamilton’s miscue while charging forward might haunt the to-be

When you’re running, you can’t make the adjustments.” These are the same Rangers who twice came within one strike of the franchise’s first World Series championship before losing Games 6 and 7 to the wild-card St. Louis Cardinals. It was Texas’ second near miss in as many years after losing the 2010 World Series to the Giants.

Those who have witnessed it first-hand certainly have their opinions. “It’s pretty amazing,” said the Royals’ Alex Gordon, who’s watched the drama unfold from his spot in left field. “Honestly, his numbers are like that every year. He has a great average, great home runs, great RBIs. He’s a guy who can pull this off, and it’s great for the game.” Giants infielder Pablo Sandoval said he was particularly proud that the T riple Crown would be accomplished by a fellow Venezuelan.

It’s a big deal in Venezuela right now,” Sandoval said. “It’s exciting, especially because of all the things that have hapBut the subdued celebration didn’t really start until Freddy Garcia struck Ivan De Jesus looking to end it. Players hugged and slapped fives on the field and put on their AL East champion shirts and hats as fans feted them with a standing ovation with “New York, New York,” blaring over the loudspeakers. The team walked off the field to chants of “Let’s go Yankees!” “Now the real season starts,” Derek Jeter said. Cano tied a career high with six RBIs as New York (95-67) finished two games ahead of Baltimore and secured home-field advantage throughout the AL playoffs.

According to authorities in St. Lucie County, Fla., Cabrera refused to cooperate, directed an obscene gesture at police and even dared them to shoot him.

Dear Readers: What makes a spritz of perfume STRONGER than a body spray? Parfum (perfume) gets its aroma from perfume oils, NOT essential oils! Pure essential oils are liquids that stem from natural raw materials, and most should NOT be in direct contact with the skin. The oils in perfumes are safe for use on bare skin. The fragrance is still diluted in another oil or alcohol, to vary the strength of the scent. The strength, which is determined by the percentage of perfume oils, can vary.

Dear Heloise: If you have a swimming pool and are tired of the time it takes to deflate rafts for storage, try using clothespins. Simply place one clothespin on the valve of each raft to keep it open. It allows the air to escape without human contact. Also, use additional clothespins to pinch the raft as it deflates. Simply roll or fold the raft up toward the valve, hold it there with a clothespin and pretty soon the raft will be out of air, ready to be folded for winter storage. As most pool owners know, many rafts can take a lot of time to deflate at the end of summer. This simple trick has saved us hours!

Report: Some dietary supplements illegally labeled Facebook

In addition, many of those and other supplements lacked the scientific studies recommended to support their suggested uses. Some products went so far as to state that the supplements could cure or prevent diabetes or cancer, or that they could help people with HIV or AIDS, which is strictly prohibited under federal law. Consumers may not just be wasting their money on pills or tablets, but they could be endangering their health if they take a supplement in place of a drug thinking it will have the same effect, the report concluded. “Consumers rely on a supplement’s claims to determine whether the product

will provide a desired effect, such as weight loss or immune support,” the report said. “Supplements that make disease claims could mislead consumers into using them as replacements for prescription drugs or other treatments for medical conditions, with potentially dangerous results.” The market for dietary supplements — which can include anything from vitamin C tablets to capsules of echinacea — is a huge one with hundreds of products. The inspector general’s investigation focused on one segment that officials said is booming. Federal law doesn’t require supplements to go through rigorous testing to prove they are safe or even that they work. The Food and Drug Administration can act only after consumers get sick or a safety issue comes to light. The Office of Inspector General found that in numerous cases, when companies did submit evidence to back up their health claims, it fell far short of government recommendations. One company submitted a 30-year-old handwritten college term paper to substanti-

tronics Inc., and seven others were in custody in Houston following raids there by the FBI. He was expected to make his first court appearance on Thursday. The indictment alleges that since October 2008, the 46-year-old Fishenko and his co-defendants “engaged in a surreptitious and systematic conspiracy” to obtain the highly regulated technology from U.S. makers and export them to Russia. U.S. authorities say the microelectronics could have a wide range of military uses, including radar and surveillance systems, weapons guidance systems and detonation triggers. They also say the charges come amid a modernization campaign by Russian military officials hungry for the restricted, American-made

components. According to court papers, Fishenko was born in the former Soviet Republic of Kazakhstan and graduated from a technical institute in St. Petersburg before coming to America in 1994. He holds U.S. and Russian passports and has frequently traveled overseas to do business, making ten as of millions of dollars on exports, authorities said. An analysis of Arc’s accounting records showed a “striking similarity between fluctuations in Arc’s gross revenues and the Russian Federation’s defense spending over the last several years,” the court papers say. Investigators also recovered a letter to Arc from a Russian intelligence domestic agency lab complaining that microchips supplied by the company were defective, the

Federal watchdogs say many dietary supplements marketed to help consumers lose weight or boost their immune systems are illegally labeled and rely on shoddy evidence to support their health claims.

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Dozens of weight loss and immune system supplements on the market are illegally labeled and lack the recommended type of scientific evidence to back up their health claims, government investigators warn in a new review of the $20 billion supplement industry. The report, released Wednesday by the Department of Health and Human Services’ inspector general, found that 20 percent of the 127 weight loss and immuneboosting supplements investigators purchased online and in retail stores across the country carried labels that made illegal claims to cure or treat disease.

ate its claim, while others included news releases, advertisements and links to Wikipedia or an online dictionary, according to the report. Overall, the review raises questions about whether the system is allowing companies to mislead consumers, investigators said, and recommended that FDA ramp up its oversight. The report did not name individual brands or products, and also did not estimate the total number of dietary supplements on the market. In response, the FDA said in written comments it would consider asking Congress for more oversight powers to review supplement companies’ evidence proving their products’ purported health benefits. The agency agreed that it should expand surveillance of the market to detect spurious claims that supplements can cure or treat specific diseases. The FDA recognizes the importance of the concerns raised about industry compliance and will address the recommendations as its resources and priorities allow, FDA spokeswoman Tamara Ward said in a state-

charging for promo user post

ment Wednesday. Investigators also found that 7 percent of the weight loss and immune support supplements they surveyed lacked the required disclaimer stating that FDA had not reviewed whether the statement on the label was truthful. Executives from the supplement industry said the report highlighted a handful of bad actors. “This small sample of supplements shouldn’t smear the entire industry,” John Shaw, executive director of the Natural Products Association, said in a statement. Ashish Talati, a Chicagobased attorney whose firm represents about 350 dietary supplement and food companies from across the globe, said the industry is well regulated and it made sense for manufacturers to share the scientific evidence behind their claims with the FDA. “Supplements are very, very safe compared to other products,” he said. “Yes, there are companies that cross the line and make specific claims, but that is the enforcement area that FDA focuses on where there is a public health issue.”

NEW YORK (AP) — Facebook has long declared that it’s “free and always will be.” And it still is — unless you want more friends to see what you have to say. The social media giant is rolling out a feature in the U.S. that lets users pay to promote their posts to friends, just as advertisers do. Facebook has been testing the service in New Zealand, where it tries out a lot of new features, and has gradually introduced it in more than 20 other countries. Facebook said Wednesday that promoting a post — such as announcing a garage sale, charity drive or big news like an engagement — will bump it higher in your friends’ news feeds. “Every day, news feed delivers your posts to your friends. Sometimes a particular friend might not notice your post, especially if a lot of their friends have been posting recently and your story isn’t near the top of their feed,” wrote Abhishek Doshi, a software engineer at Facebook, on Facebook’s news site. Facebook didn’t say how much it will cost to promote the posts, only that it’s considering a range of prices as part of the test. On Wednesday, though, some users could see $7 as a cost per each update that they want to promote.

US: Immigrant stole military technology for Russia NEW YORK (AP) — An American success story of an immigrant from Kazakhstan who made millions off his Texas export firm took a Cold War-era turn on Wednesday when U.S. authorities accused him of being a secret agent who’s been stealing military technology for the Russian military. Alexander Fishenko was among 11 defendants named in a federal indictment filed in Brooklyn charging them in an alleged scheme to purposely evade strict export controls for cutting-edge microelectronics. It also charges Fishenko with money laundering and operating inside the United States as an unregistered agent of the Russian government.
