PORTSMOUTH, Ohio (AP) — Republicans Mitt Romney and Paul R yan went back to school on Saturday to rally college students in all corners of all-important Ohio and hammer at President Barack Obama for going easy on China over unfair trade practices. Obama took precious time off the campaign trail to practice for the next debate against his GOP rival.

final weeks of the race to prepare for Tuesday’s encounter in Hempstead, N .Y.
Even while cloistered for debate prep at a sprawling resort in Williamsburg, Va., though, the president did not completely cede the spotlight to Romney. His weekly radio and Internet address highlighted the Obama administration’s work to revive the U.S. auto industry — a message aimed squarely at workingclass voters in manufacturing-heavy states like Ohio.
Romney, for his part, told a crowd of more than 3,000 people at Shawnee State University in Portsmouth that Obama was ducking
an important decision on whether China is manipulating its currency to gain a trade advantage. A decision was due on Monday, but the Treasury Department said Friday the decision won’t come until after global finance officials meet in early November. That means a decision is unlikely before the Nov. 6 election.
Romney framed the issue squarely as a matter of jobs, saying cheap Chinese products were driving American companies out of business. Ryan, too, criticized the

LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) — The matchup between Texas Tech and No. 5 West Virginia featured a quarterback who put up cartoonish numbers, throwing for six touchdowns and 499 yards. And that quarterback’s name was Seth Doege. Doege led Texas Tech’s offense while the Red Raiders’ defense shut down Heisman Trophy hopeful Geno Smith, upsetting the Mountaineers 49-14 on Saturday. Red Raider fans stormed the field after the win, the most lopsided Texas Tech victory ever over a team ranked in the top five. - PAGE B1

Music enthusiasts of all skill levels gathered at Ginsberg Music Saturday as the Roswell Jazz Festival continued with a series of seminars. Artistic director Michael Francis said the seminars serve two main purposes. The first purpose, he said, “is to explain the mystery of what the musicians are doing during the performances.” He said that by showing listeners what all goes into creating jazz, they are able to enjoy the jazz concerts from a more educated standpoint and come away with more knowledge about the multifaceted style. “There’s lots of ways of playing jazz, many, many, different styles,” he said. “And this is a way to let people know on the inside [what goes into creating jazz].”

TECH IN A BLOWOUT
NOAH VERNAU RECORD STAFF WRITER
Are we ready, Roswell? Red Bull Stratos announced Saturday that Felix Baumgartner is rested and ready to go for another chance to break the sound barrier in a historic free fall from 23 miles above the surface of the Earth. The new launch attempt could take place this morning as early as a little before sunrise. Stratos meteorologist Don Day said launch conditions tend to be best at sunrise or shortly thereafter, but that the window for launch could stay open until 11 a.m. Art Thompson, technical director, said the team will know where it stands for a late mor ning Sunday launch by 8:30 a.m.
Live streaming coverage of the record-breaking attempt will be available at RedBullStratos.com. If Stratos accomplishes its mission from the edge of space today, Baumgartner would break the sound barrier exactly 65 years after Chuck Yeager became the first man to break the sound barrier flying in an experimental rocket-powered airplane. “I’m hoping it will come off, because what a wonderful footnote that would be,” Col. Joe Kittinger, Stratos flight director, said, “the first with a plane, the first one by body.” Down to its final balloon, the Stratos team has now settled on the likelihood that another does not exist in a warehouse. Thompson said if the
fragile, 55-story balloon suffers the same fate as the previous, another would have to be manufactured in a process that takes four to five weeks. Due to a weather window that closes some time in November, Thompson added that another balloon loss would most likely push the Stratos mission to 2013. To get his balloon inflated and aloft, Baumgartner needs near windless conditions at ground level and clear skies. Baumgartner, 43, stated that he relishes the chance to make history on the same day Yeager went supersonic by airplane, but that no matter the time or day, Stratos will accom-

My father kneeling on my mother’s chest as she lay on the ground and he punched her repeatedly. Blood dripped from her mouth and her eyes were already tur ning purple with the bruises. As he hit her, he punctuated each strike by saying, ‘See what happens to a woman who doesn’t obey her husband?’ “One night I was awakened by mother’s blood dripping in my face. I saw her, silhouetted, a black
figure in a dark room. I was unable to see her face, but I knew it was her blood. I remember wiping it from my face. She whispered in my ear, ‘If it weren’t for you, I would have left your father.’ I felt responsible for her fate. “I saw humiliations daily, stabbings and beatings that happened at least once a week, sometimes more often.

Domestic violence: Giving voice to children JESSICA PALMER RECORD STAFF WRITER
Domestic violence is the silent killer because the victims rarely speak of it, even if they have escaped their circumstances, for fear of retaliation. The children of domestic violence are also among the silent victims. These children are more likely to be abused and neglected by both the beleaguered spouse and by the abusive one. Even if a child is not physically harmed, he may be emotionally scarred. One child survivor was willing to speak of her experiences. She said that some images, some memo-

Few good options to secure Syria chemical arsenal
BEIRUT (AP) — The U.S. and regional allies are closely monitoring Syria’s chemical weapons — caught in the midst of a raging civil war — but options for securing the toxic agents stuffed into shells, bombs and missiles are fraught with risk. President Bashar Assad’s embattled regime is believed to have one of the largest chemical weapons stockpiles in the world. Fears have risen that a cornered Assad might use them or that they could fall into the hands of extremists, whether the Lebanese Hezbollah militia, an Assad ally, or al-Qaida-inspired militants among the rebels. For now, the main storage and production sites are considered secure.
However, some suggest the civil war poses one of the gravest risks of losing control over non-conventional weapons since the breakup of the Soviet Union two decades ago. Syria’s suspected arsenal is scattered across a number of locations, mainly in the north and west, where fighting between Assad’s forces and rebels seeking to oust him has been heaviest. The price of military action against the arsenal is prohibitively high, Steven Bucci, a for mer senior Defense Department official, and others say. Airstrikes on chemical weapons depots could inadvertently release toxic clouds or expose them to looters. A ground operation
would require thousands of troops, and the U.S. administration has pushed back on any suggestion of direct military action in Syria. Pinpoint operations by special forces could easily go wrong. Syria’s secrecy compounds the problem. Damascus hasn’t signed nonproliferation agreements, long denying it has chemical weapons. Syria “is a black hole for us,” said Michael Luhan of the Organization for the Prohiof Chemical bition Weapons, declining to give an estimate of the size of the arsenal because foreign inspectors are barred. Other experts acknowledge there is no firm data and say they base their estimates largely on U.S.
ing, including the president’s $800 billion stimulus program. R yan renewed his criticism about stimulus spending in Thursday night’s vice presidential debate. “Was it a good idea to spend taxpayer dollars on electric cars in Finland or on windmills in China?” Ryan said. “Was it a good idea to borrow all this money from countries like China and spend it on all these various dif ferent interest groups?” Yet the AP’s review of Ryan’s congressional correspondence showed that he sought stimulus funding on behalf of residents and at one point told federal regulators that cutting a stimulus grant in his district at the 11th hour would be “economically devastating.” In some of his correspondence, Ryan explicitly supports programs and encourages federal agencies to take actions. He supported in his congressional letters some Wisconsin farms’ share of an $11.8 million loan guarantee but later criticized other loan guarantees, such as the $535 million loan that went to nowdefunct solar panel maker Solyndra. He asked trans-
portation officials for a grant for green technology and alter native fuels, although his proposed budget as House budget chairman called loans for electric car development “corporate welfare.” He’s also supported federal money to help a Kenosha, Wis., community center cover health care costs of low-income families under Obama’s health care refor m law — the very program he and Romney say they will repeal if they win the White House. Ryan spokesman Brendan Buck said AP’s findings represented a member of Congress helping people in his district. “Part of being a congressman is vouching for constituents and helping them navigate the federal bureaucracy when asked,” he said. Among the ways Ryan went to bat for his constituents, as detailed in his correspondence: •A Kenosha community center’s grant proposal under the Food Stamps Access Research program, to educate families about the nutritional benefits of food stamps. Ryan said in a 2002 letter the program would increase the enroll-
intelligence reports. Syria is believed to have hundreds, if not thousands, of tons of chemical agents, said Leonard Spector, deputy director of the James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies in Monterey, California. This includes mustard gas, a blistering agent, and the more lethal nerve agents sarin and VX, he said. The chemical agents are believed to be designed for use in artillery shells, aerial bombs and ballistic missiles, said Scott Stewart of the U.S. security think tank Stratfor. Syria has not used chemical weapons, unlike Iraq’s former leader Saddam Hussein. Analysts say the bigger threat is that the weapons fall into the wrong hands.
Ryan asked for federal help as he championed cuts WASHINGTON (AP) — Republican vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan is a fiscal conservative, champion of small government and critic of federal handouts. But as a congressman in Wisconsin, Ryan lobbied for tens of millions of dollars on behalf of his constituents for the kinds of largess he’s now campaigning against, according to an Associated Press review of 8,900 pages of correspondence between R yan’s office and more than 70 executive branch agencies. For 12 years in the House, Ryan wrote to federal agencies supporting expansion of food stamps in his Wisconsin district. He supported city officials and everyday constituents who sought stimulus grants, federally guaranteed business loans, grants to invest in green technology and money under the health care law he opposes. On the campaign trail, R yan has called those kinds of handouts biggovernment overreaching. He tells crowds he supports smaller government and rails against what he calls President Barack Obama’s wasteful spend-
ment of eligible individuals in the program by providing laptop computers to pre-screen applicants. Ryan’s budget proposed cutting food stamps by $134 billion over 10 years, although his spokesman said he “has always made clear we need a strong safety net.” •Letters offering support or forwarding requests for projects funded by stimulus money. R yan’s May 2009 letter to a regional Environmental Protection Agency office asked for its “full consideration” in awarding grant money to an organization under the National Clean Diesel Funding Assistance Program, which reduces diesel emissions.
•A 2002 Agriculture Department loan guarantee to develop a porkpacking and processing plant for far ms in the region, including some in his district. The new factory appeared to be “state of the art” and worthy of funding, he said, adding: “It is my hope that the USDA will reach a favorable decision” on the application for a 60 percent federal loan guarantee toward a $19.7 million loan.

SUPCO orders filings in straight party voting case
SANTA FE (AP) — The state Supreme Court wants more information about a lawsuit seeking to restore a straight party ticket voting option. The court on Friday ordered the secretary of state to submit a written response to the lawsuit, which was filed Thursday by the state Democratic Party. The justices directed Democrats to submit additional written legal arguments and to outline what

effect it would have in the election if the straight ticket option was allowed now that absentee voting has started in the general election. The responses are due by Tuesday. The court hasn’t decided yet whether to hold a hearing in the case. Secretary of State Dianna Duran contends state law doesn’t allow for voters to make a single mark on their ballots to support a party’s entire slate of candidates.

administration for failing to hold China accountable for its trade practices. During a morning appearance in northeaster n Ohio at Youngstown State University, he told a crowd of about 1,400 that his hometown of Janesville, Wis., was much like theirs — a “blue-collar, factory town” where the struggles of the auto industry hit home hard. Ryan said the president had led the country toward a higher national debt, steeper taxes and insufficient job growth. The Obama campaign dismissed the Republicans’ tough talk on China as nothing more than talk. “Mitt Romney will never crack down on China’s cheating — just look at his record,” Obama campaign spokesman Danny Kanner said in a statement. He said Romney had opposed Obama administration efforts to impose tariffs on Chinese-made tires and had invested in companies that shipped American jobs to China. Both sides are devoting huge time and ef fort to Ohio, this year’s battleground to end all battlegrounds, where polls show Obama with a slight edge over Romney.

manufacturing jobs was designed to connect with blue-collar voters there.
Both sides also are keenly aware of the importance of this year’s series of three presidential debates. Romney’s strong performance in the first debate on Oct. 3 gave his campaign a muchneeded jolt of energy, and the GOP nominee said his campaign still had postdebate momentum over Obama.
Tuesday’s town hall-style debate at Hofstra University will have an audience of about 80 undecided voters selected by the Gallup Organization. Moderator Candy Crowley of CNN will select from among questions on foreign and domestic policy submitted by the audience. The final debate, covering foreign policy, will be Oct. 22 in Boca Raton, Fla.
Romney spent nearly four hours Saturday morning at a Columbus hotel preparing for the next debate, then boarded his campaign bus for Shawnee State. From there, the Romney bus headed for Lebanon in southwest Ohio, where he gave a similar speech.

The second goal of the seminars is to reach young people and peak their interest in the music style, thus keeping the art form alive. The day included insight on playing jazz guitar, piano and horns. Attendees then received a treat as the musicians rehearsed a few numbers they would later perform at Tropical Rhythms. Pianist Roger Dickerson, who helped conduct the jazz piano seminar, said the event had a different vibe for him. He first came to Roswell as an evacuee of Hurricane Katrina and said he was welcomed by the community with open arms. He felt he wasn’t really addressing a crowd during his portion, but interacting with loved ones. “I’ve gotten to know these people and they’re just really at the bottom of my heart,” he said. “ So when I’m talking to them about anything, particularly about music, it’s very heartfelt and I feel like I’m speaking to people who are close to me, members of my family.” The seminar left many

She said she happened to be visiting the state and decided to attend the festival while here. She’s been playing the piano since since she was 6, but learned more about the gradations and rhythms of jazz piano music and took away how to improvise when playing. Manuel added that the infor mation gleaned at the seminar, coupled with her new hobby, will take her piano playing to a new level. “One thing I will say is I had a great piano teacher, but I don’t think my ear training was that good,” she said. “Since I’ve been taking tap dancing lessons it has really helped me open up the possibilities of not playing on the page.

launch. The weather window will likely remain open for a Monday morning launch if Stratos eliminates today as a possibility. Day said that at this time, Tuesday and Wednesday do not look favorable for a launch. Kittinger said patience is key for a stratospheric balloon launch, and that weather delays cannot deter Stratos or Baumgartner from finishing its mission to the edge of space. “John Wayne once said that courage is being scared to death but saddling up into it,” he said. “Well, Felix is ready to saddle up. And we’re ready to give him his horse through the stratosphere.”
CARLSBAD (AP) — A nonprofit center that provides mental health services in Eddy County is being investigated for its billing practices and may be forced to close if its funding is cut off. The Carlsbad CurrentArgus reports officials at Carlsbad Mental Health Center say they are cooperating with an investigation by the state Attorney General’s Medicaid Fraud Division. In a statement provided to the Current Argus, the center’s board acknowledged that the state is investigating its billing and record practices. “It is our understanding this investigation does not involve the quality of patient care,” the board stated. “We are also simultaneously conducting our own internal investigation of the record keeping and billing issues and have uncovered no evidence of wrong-doing.” The newspaper reports the center could be out of business in 20 days if its funding is cut off. Center officials said the agency is continuing to provide patient services during the investigation but could collapse in weeks if it runs out of operating funds. “We need to make sure the local jobs associated with the services provided by CMHC are not lost,” said Carlsbad Mayor Dale Janway, who has briefed on the problems. “We understand that this investigation must run its course. But at the same time, we

are keenly aware that many people in our community rely on the services that CMHC has provided for almost 30 years. The loss or interruption of these services will likely have a serious impact, not only on the individual clients, but also the community at large.” Center officials and community leaders are set to meet Monday in Santa Fe with the state Human Services Department, the Attorney General’s Office, local legislators and Gov. Susana Martinez to address the issue and see how it can be resolved quickly. Rep. Cathrynn Brown, REddy, told the CurrentArgus she is trying to clear her calendar to also attend Monday’s meeting. “It is really not clear to me what happened,” she said. “I want to make sure that whatever we do is not over-reaching or over-reaction. But we need to do whatever we can to get things fixed. I have heard one side. We need to get to the bottom of what has happened.” The board said it is willing to work with a state overseer to manage Carlsbad Mental Health’s operations while the investigation continues. In addition, the organization is asking the state to lift the hold on Medicaid funds and work with the organization to develop a solution that protects Medicaid funds and ensures Carlsbad has access to locally provided mental health services.

State politics are getting rougher all the time
SANTA FE — Recent research reveals that presidential campaigns are becoming more negative every four years. It isn’t difficult to believe. In New Mexico, state and local campaigns are getting that way too. This year our state’s legislative races are leading the way. Since no federal races in New Mexico are targeted this year we are catching a little break in the presidential and congressional races. But many legislative races are nasty and have been since the June primaries. Leading the pack in negativity during the primary campaigns was the battle for Clint Harden’s Eastside Senate seat from which it appeared he had to step down for not being a sure enough vote for GOP leaders. Gov. Susana Martinez immediately stepped into the race, if she hadn’t been already, and pushed Angie Spears, the well-connected niece of a high Republican official. The governor’s Super PAC gave her
INSIDE THE CAPITOL
big money and the governor herself traveled the district promoting her. Spears lost, but now Sen. Harden has announced he is stepping down before the Dec. 31 end of his term. He is recommending that winner Pat Woods be appointed by the governor to fill that seat. That would be the usual procedure since Woods will assume the seat in January anyway. But it is a further poke in the eye at the governor. She could appoint the primary election loser whom she supported, if she wants. But maybe she will let bygones be bygones. Now the big contest will be an effort to knock Democrat Tim Jennings of Roswell out of his Senate

president pro tem top seat in the Senate. Jennings is conservative and the best Republicans can do for Senate leadership unless they could magically take over the Senate in November. Jennings’ opponent is 26-yearold Cliff Pirtle but the real fight is with the governor’s chief of staff Keith Gardner, formerly a Roswell lawmaker. Gardner was taped on a lengthy phone call slamming Jennings and Roswell and vowing to raise $500,000 to beat Jennings. Jennings has compiled parts of the hour and 13-minute rant into a television ad that is running statewide — something almost never seen in legislative campaigns. This obviously isn’t just a local issue within Jennings’ state senatorial district. Jennings has a big target on his back and so does Senate Democratic Leader Michael Sanchez, of Belen. The governor’s people already have found David Chavez, an opponent who will be well funded.
The Reform New Mexico Now PAC, run by Gov. Martinez’s political guru Jay McCleskey, has announced that it plans to get involved in some 20 legislative races this month. This will include mail and TV in the last 10 days of the campaigns. This isn’t completely unusual for a governor. Former Gov. Bill Richardson and his PAC got involved in legislative campaigns but only to the extent of making donations. Even legislators donate to each others, sometimes across party lines. This is big-time stuff. And it isn’t confined to Republicans. This really got started four years ago when two left-leaning nonprofit groups got involved in defeating mainly Democratic state senators who didn’t lean far enough to the left. Legal challenges to their operations and their refusal to reveal income sources dragged through the courts until recently when the rights of the nonprofits were affirmed.
One of those Democratic senators defeated largely through efforts of a nonprofit was Shannon Robinson, of Albuquerque, who now is running as a Republican against incumbent Sen. Tim Keller, who beat him four years ago. Robinson appears to be getting some help from top Republicans but not enough yet to match Keller’s war chest. Another hot and heavy legislative race is on Albuquerque’s West Side. Joe Carraro, who represented the area for a long time as a Republican, dropped the party two years ago after not receiving GOP help in a previous U.S. Senate race. Carraro now is an independent and is challenging incumbent John R yan, the husband of a member of Gov. Martinez’s Cabinet.

New hotspot to worry NATO
What is it called when two countries that share a common border exchange artillery fire? A “skirmish”? An “inevitable long-term conflict”? How about “potential war”? Turkish President Abdullah Gul said last week that “worst-case scenarios” are now a reality as Syria’s civil war has directly affected its northern neighbor Turkey, both in terms of the sheer numbers of Syrian refugees and fire crossing the border. Tensions are mounting on both sides, as analysts have noted, but the belligerence flows from the Syrian regime. Syria and Turkey exchanged fire across their troubled border for a sixth straight day, attacks that look increasingly like an intentional escalation by President Bashar Assad to send a message to his northern neighbor that it will pay dearly for supporting the rebels. In recent years, Turkey has been slowly — but surely — moving away from its traditional secularism to a more “moderate” Islamist government. It’s not perfect. However, in this de facto conflict with Syria, it has exercised considerable caution. Turkey is hosting some 93,000 registered Syrian refugees, housed in 13 camps. It’s believed that 40,000 to 50,000 more refugees are undocumented, possibly renting accommodations or staying with relatives. The current situation is unsustainable; though it is clear Ankara doesn’t want a war and is doing whatever it can to deter its neighbor. Whether the U.S. and its allies want to become further embroiled in Syria’s civil war, they may eventually find that they’re placed in a position to defend their NATO partner Turkey. In a direct warning to Syria, NATO has said it is prepared to defend. “Obviously Turkey can rely on NATO solidarity,” Anders Fogh Rasmussen said prior to a meeting with NATO defense ministers in Brussels. “We have all necessary plans in place to protect and defend Turkey if necessary.” The statement is largely symbolic, but it’s important because it serves as a warning. Syria’s regional conflict, born out of the wider Arab Spring and with the goal of ousting President Bashar al-Assad, has claimed the lives of more than 30,000 people. Several Western journalists have been maimed or killed. Most recently, Washington Post freelance journalist and former Marine Austin Tice was kidnapped and is believed held by the Syrian government. Syria’s 19-month conflict has the potential to reach the two-year mark because Syria’s military, police and intelligence services are so united. Al-Assad’s regime is centrally run through an old guard put into place by his father, Hafez. It’s been weakened — but not destroyed — due in part to Saudi support for the rebels. Saudi influence, moreover, has not been widely discussed. It has the potential to further undermine the possibility of a democratic Syria. This conflict isn’t going away. It’s also not easily ignored. U.S. crude prices increased last week amid fears over what could happen to oil piped to Turkey from Iraq’s northern Kurdistan region, near Syria. What appeared to be a skirmish across Turkish-Syrian borders has the potential to escalate to so much more. Guest Editorial The Orange County Register DEAR DOCTOR K: Is there a “right” way to wash your hands? I wash my hands regularly but still get sick. DEAR READER: I answer a lot of questions about complicated, serious diseases. Yet your question, about something all of us do every day, is at least as important because we don’t always do it well — and we pay a price for that. Washing your hands is one of the best ways to prevent the spread of viruses and bacteria that cause colds, the flu and other infectious illnesses. There is no doubt that it reduces your risk of catching many infectious diseases. It doesn’t eliminate the risk, usually because the germs can get into your body in other
A new foreign policy is required On Monday, Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney delivered a foreign policy speech to cadets at the Virginia Military Institute in Lexington, Va. He was correct in his indictment of the Obama administration for its numerous failures — especially in the Middle East — and his embrace of Ronald R eag a n’ s “ p eace t hr ou g h st r e ng t h” ph il os oph y.

ways besides on your hands. But hand-washing definitely protects you. However, to be protected, you’ve got to wash your hands thoroughly and regularly. There’s no rule for how often you should wash your hands, but there are certain occasions when you must wash your hands: after using the bathroom, before eating or prepar-
ing food, and after being with someone who is ill. I also wash my hands as soon as I get home. Remember that soap and water don’t “kill” germs; they mechanically remove germs from your hands. That’s why it’s important to wash your hands thoroughly. Follow these steps: — Spread cleanser over your hands. — Clean backs of hands and fingers. — Clean fingertips. — Clean fingernails. — Clean thumbs. — Clean between fingers. It takes about one minute to properly wash and dry your hands. Wash your hands for as long as it takes you to sing

pu rp ose t o be su cce ssfu l? Ir aq? Afghanistan? Vietnam? Will it work with Iran? Does Romney think bombing Iran, with or without Israel’s assistance, will deter the mullahs from t h ei r goa l of a cqu ir i n g n u clear weapons? Maybe it would, but can he be sure? Would Israel, and possibly America, be able to tolerate a counterstrike and possible terrorist acts on U.S. soil by Iranian and Hezbollah agents that could very well be in the U.S. awaiting instructions? John F. Kennedy said in his 1961 Inaugural Address that we were willing to “... pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe, in order to assure the survival and success of liberty.” Eleven years later as America was being torn apart by the Vietnam War, Democratic presidential candidate Geo rge McG ove r n sai d t he Un i ted States “... can’t be the policeman of the world.” Who is right? I think both are right. America’s role in the world must be re-defined and explained to its citizens. The pr esidential candidates should be asked about it. We can’t afford to go everywhere and do everything. It isn’t fair to our young men and women who are asked to die, or lose limbs, and it isn’t fair to taxpayers who must pay for these wars.

Susie Russell Executive Director Community Foundation of Chaves County liberty and freeing people from tyranny. That interest is moral as well as self-serving. Democracies don’t attack each other. But when and how should we act? The flaw in Romney’s otherwise good speech was his re-statement of the policy of the current administration and previous ones that a Palestinian state adjacent to Israel is the key to Middle East peace. There is no evidence the Palestinian-Arab-Muslim wor ld sh ar es t h is goal. R ad ical Islamists teach, preach and act as if their objective is the elimination of Israel. The Palestinian leadership has not lived up to a single promise or agreement, while Israel has sacrificed lan d a n d l ives in t h e p u r s uit o f a Western mirage. Wester n values — including religious values — can’t be forced on people who don’t share them. There is a fundamental gap between Islamic cultures and the West that cannot be easily bridged by diplomacy or military might. Romney’s VMI speech sounded good to some American ears, but what does it mean to the rest of the world, which faces not invading armies, but invading terrorists without uniforms or a nation-state? Perhaps Bob Schieffer will ask Romney and President Obama to answer these questions. (Write to Cal Thomas at: T ribune Media Services, 2225 Kenmore Ave., Suite 114, Buffalo, N.Y. 14207.

May your hair get messed up regularly A6 Sunday, October 14, 2012
There is an old Beatles song released in 1967 titled “A Day in the Life” that includes the words, “Woke up, got out of bed, dragged a comb across my head, found my way downstairs and drank a cup. And looking up, I noticed I was late. Found my coat and grabbed my hat. Made the bus in seconds flat ...” For many people one day is just like the next. You finish one day, go to bed, and then get up the next day only to do it all over again. Is today just like yesterday for you? When you go to bed tonight will you just have existed another day? Will you just have moved one day from the “to be lived” column to the “lived” column on your ledger of life? Today I tur n another year older. It is my annual birthday. I have averaged one birthday a year for each year of my life. And, amazingly, each birthday falls on the same day of the year that it did the year before. It is almost as if I can predict how old I will be in five years! To me the annual anniversary of my date of birth is an important date for me. It is a time for me to look backward at the year I have just lived and forward to the
JUST A THOUGHT
year I have yet to live. It is an excuse to step outside myself and to look into the life I lead, a time to determine if I am on track or just “lost and making good time.” I like the speaker who said, “It is better to take three steps in the direction you need to move than to take 12 steps and move in a circle.” We each need to make time to assess our lives looking at the big picture. I recently heard a sermon with the core concept being “Everyone wants to be known for something.” I think I agree with his statement. The question for each of us is what is it that we want to be known for? The days we live make up the words of the story of our life. The months we live make up the sentences. The years we live make up
Chalk Art Festival help appreciated
Dear Editor: The Roswell Museum and Art Center’s sixth annual Art Block Party and Chalk Art Festival was a hit once again, even on a cold and overcast day. Although the weather did cut back on our overall attendance from past years, the Chalk Art competition had the largest turnout of competitors and spectators to date. This event takes the commitment and energy of many people.

the pages and the seasons we move through make up the chapters of the book of the story of our life. What is the title of your story? What is the title of your current chapter? Does it read day after day something along the lines of “John got up, got out of bed, dragged a comb across his head ...?” If it does, you are just treading water in this chapter of your life. Life can become repetitive. It can also get bogged down by the trivial. We can get so lost in the routine that we fail to make progress on a bigger level. If you have no stress in your life, you are probably not accomplishing what you need to be accomplishing in the years you have been given. You see, no stress means that everything you are doing is within your comfort zone. Some days like this are fine, but if you live every day within your comfort zone, you are not getting done what you need to get done. And our days are short. If your life is all about you, I am sorry for you. I guess the title of your book may be “John Lived His Life and It Was All About John.” You see, each of us must have

something in our life that is bigger than us. Something that we contribute to that is a small part of a bigger purpose. Nothing great has ever been accomplished by one person. It always takes a team. What is it in your life that is bigger than you? What is something you are doing not to benefit yourself, but that allows you to take the God given gifts and talents within you and contribute them to benefit others? If you aren’t laying in bed from time to time having trouble sleeping, not because you are looking out for yourself, but because you are doing something for others, your life may not be on track with where it needs to be. What you receive will die with you, what you give will live on after you are gone. A repetitive routine may provide short-term results. Getting out of the routine for a bigger cause can provide long-ter m results. Make sure each day is not just like the day before, but that you are advancing on a larger level. My challenge to you is to think big. Dream big. Have a cause (or two or three) that is bigger than you. Something that makes a difference for others. Something

How can I find out where I should go for services? Roswell Daily Record
As I began to consider what should be the subject for my column this week, I happened to glance at my desk and saw two booklets in front of me, and I had my answer! Roswell is blessed to have so very many resources and services available in our community. We have organizations in this town which provide support and counseling services, medical and health resources, services for seniors, mentorships for youth, and hundreds of other community needs in every corner of our city. Many of us have either lived in Roswell for a long while, or may be involved in some way with these resources. We may be aware of many of these
resources and how to get in touch with them. But what about newcomers or visitors? How can they quickly find out where to go for certain resources or services in Roswell? The booklets I had seen were community resource guides. One is the “2012 Resource Directory” researched, assembled, and distributed by the Family Resource and Referral Inc. organization. The second is a product of Frontier Medical and Personal Care by Design, who share the same offices. Each of these references has a wealth of infor mation within its pages, information which may be critically important to an individual who needs it. In some cases, the abili-
ty to quickly locate a particular agency may be vital, even life-changing. There are some distinct differences in the way each presents the information, and for that matter, in the subject matter itself. One is pretty comprehensive, while the other is largely restricted to matters of health and social services. One booklet is printed and assembled on site, whereas the second is professionally printed, smaller in size, and with many advertisers. Both are wonderful assets given to our community! The effort it takes to publish them is massive and we are grateful for that work. The Family Resource and Referral Resource Directory
is not randomly placed around town, but is readily available at any organization which provides the services or uses the information. Frontier Medical’s “Community and Health Resource Guide” can be located at any of the advertisers’ locations, each hospital, chambers of commerce, Eastern New Mexico

University- Roswell and others. Additionally, we have a supply here at the Neighborhood Watch building. I am certain that there are other entities here in Roswell which can provide access to the same information, and I’ll apologize that I have missed you. I do know the United Way of Chaves County will soon be making much of this information available on the internet and in other userfriendly ways. That effort too will be dif ficult and labor-intensive, but it will be greatly welcomed by the community! Finally, as citizens of Roswell, we should all be grateful to the countless Roswell and Chaves County
businesses which support, through their advertising and donations in-kind, so many varied efforts in our community. Virtually any weekend there are fundraisers and other events which are heavily supported by donations and advertising. Several of the same contributors consistently support many different worthy causes. It is truly amazing how much support we, as a community, are given by the local and regional business people. Certainly, I would urge us to acknowledge their support by patronizing those businesses whenever possible.

SECOND ADVOCACY FOR CANCER PATIENTS SEMINAR SLATED In support of the Shannon J.

Oklahoma quarterback and Artesia alumnus Landry Jones (12) passes as offensive linesman Tyrus Thompson (71) blocks Texas defensive end Jackson Jeffcoat during the Sooner’s blowout win over the Longhorns, Saturday.
DALLAS (AP) — When Bob Stoops starts to rattle off the scores of the big wins he’s brought home for Oklahoma in the Red River Rivalry, they all start to sound alike — and oh, that’s so sweet for the Sooners. Damien Williams broke off a 95-yard touchdown run for the longest rush in the rivalry’s history, Blake Bell powered his way in for four TDs and No. 13 Oklahoma beat No. 15 Texas 63-21 Saturday for its second straight blowout in the series. Stoops is now 9-5 against Mack Brown and responsible for three of Oklahoma’s five most lopsided wins over Texas — and that doesn’t include last year’s 55-17 clobbering. Put this one right up there with 65-13 in 2003 and 6314 in 2000, both seasons when the Sooners played for

It would have been right there with those. “Those are pretty special ones, and this definitely is right there with them.” Landry Jones threw for 321 yards and two touchdowns and for the third straight time got to slap on his head the Golden Hat trophy that goes to the winner. He entered rare territory, breaking Steve Davis’ record for wins at the school and becoming just the fourth Sooners QB to beat Texas three times. See ROUT, Page B5

fourth down with 9:48 left. Tyre Brooks scored on a 5-yard run with 3:54 left to stretch the run to 28 in a row. That put the Monsters up 4521 and NMMI could never recover. Jayde Rowe (five carries, 77 yard, one TD) led a Bronco rushing attack that netted just 47 yards on the night. Quinn Billerman was 21 for 36 for 256 yards and two scores and Ben Langford was 4 for 7 for 26 yards. Farron Jones caught four passes for 75 yards and a TD and Delvon Carpenter had five grabs for 68 yards and a TD. Eastern Arizona finished with 346 rushing yards on 55 carries.
Lake Arthur 64, San Jon 14 LAKE ARTHUR — Lake Arthur got back on the winning track on Saturday with a mercy-rule victory over visiting San Jon. San Jon got to within 28-14 in the second quarter, but the Panthers (6-1, 1-1 District 1-6M) scored 36 unanswered points after that to get the win on their first drive of the second half. “We put it together,” said Panther coach Jose Cruz Porras. “Last week, the team unity was not there, as opposed to tonight. We built on that. “We knew we were going to be facing a good team and we couldn’t dwell on the past. We had to play as a team and that we did.” Luis Velo, who stepped into the starting quarterback role for the injured Cody Dalton, was 6 for 8 for 169 yards and four touchdowns through the air and
rushed for 76 yards. “Luis Velo had to step up and fill some big shoes. He did just that,” Porras said about Velo’s performance. “My hats off to not only him, but the team, for stepping up and beating a good ballteam.” Miguel Rubio rushed for 140 yards and three scores and caught two passes for 59 yards and a TD. Dominic Pisana had two catches for 51 yards and two scores and Leonel Velo had a receiving score and a rushing score.
St. Michael’s 58, NMMI 7 SANTA FE — The Colts hung tough through the first half, but the Horsemen pulled away for a lopsided win, Saturday. NMMI’s Jose Gonzalez scored on a 12-yard scamper in the first quarter to draw the Colts within 10-7. NMMI got the ball back with the chance to take the lead, but a Horsemen interception spurred a run of 48 unanswered points. “We were really excited and the kids were real pumped,” Colt coach Randy Montoya said about the start. “We just have to put four quarters together. “We look decent when we get things rolling. We just have to keep working and try to get better. We have spurts, but we just have to put a whole game together.” The Colts fell to 0-7 with the loss.
Artesia 6, Goddard 0 Artesia broke open a 1-0 match with five second-half goals to claim a District 4-4A win over the Rockets, Saturday. “We didn’t quit,” said Rocket coach Fernando Sosa. “Overall, (the guys) did pretty decent. They
played hard.” The loss dropped Goddard to 510-1 overall and 0-2 in district play.
Silver 2, NMMI 0 SILVER CITY — The host Colts scored twice in the second half and claimed a District 3-1A/3A over NMMI, Saturday. “Through the first half and the first 20 minutes of the second half, we played great and dominated the game,” said NMMI coach John Barbour. “Unfortunately, we couldn’t capitalize on our opportunities. That allowed (the Colts) to stay in the game and when they got opportunities, they capitalized. “Our guys didn’t stop playing until the final whistle and I’m proud of that. It just wasn’t enough.” NMMI fell to 8-6 overall and 3-2 in district play with the loss.
Artesia 0 (3), Goddard 0 (1), PK ARTESIA — Artesia claimed a District 4-4A win over Goddard on Saturday in a penalty-kick shootout. The Bulldogs connected on three of their five chances in the shootout while Goddard got its lone score from August Bush. “(The girls) played really hard, we just had trouble getting the ball into the back of the net,” said Rocket coach Betty Elizondo. “You’re always disappointed to lose a game, but I’m not disappointed in the girls. They really did play hard. “It just didn’t go our way today.” The loss dropped Goddard to 611 overall and 1-1 in district play.
Roswell Daily Record responded to a pair of losses earlier this week with a three-set sweep of Plains (Texas), Saturday. The Demons won the first set 25-19, the second set 25-16 and the third set 25-12. “The girls rebounded well. We had two losses this week and they rebounded really well,” said Demon coach Andy Luikens. “It was a good all-around team effort.” Hannah Manemann led the Demons (11-5) with 10 kills. Nayely Anderson and Haley Norris each had six kills. Tamara Salas had 17 assists, 15 digs and four aces.

LSU downs third-ranked South Carolina at home
BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — LSU freshman Jeremy Hill announced his arrival as a big-time running back with both tackle-breaking power and breakaway speed on a 50-yard scoring run that was too much for South Carolina to overcome. Hill finished with 124 yards and two touchdowns in his breakout performance, and the ninth-ranked Tigers handed No. 3 South Carolina its first loss of the season, 23-21 on Saturday night. “Jeremy Hill’s a pretty talented back and has really great speed for a big man,” LSU coach Les Miles said. “He certainly came along at the right time.” LSU (6-1, 2-1 Southeastern Conference) substantially outgained South Carolina (6-1, 4-1) 406 yards to 211, but struggled to find the end zone. Three times, LSU settled for field goals after driving at least as far as the Gamecocks 5yard line, and another drive to the South Carolina 15 stalled on a missed field goal. But Hill’s long score with 5:03 left gave LSU a ninepoint lead that proved to be just enough cushion for the Tigers. The run caused bedlam in Death Valley, exactly
what South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier did not want to see — or hear — after jokingly pretending to be momentarily confused this past week about the fact there are two Death Valley’s, one at LSU and one at Clemson. “That was Death Valley,” Miles said triumphantly afterward. “That was the place where opponents’ dreams come to die — and it was spectacular.” Connor Shaw drove South Carolina for a late TD on a short pass to Bruce Ellington with 1:41 left, and the Gamecocks got the ball once more with 35 seconds left, but LSU’s defense held up. Zach Mettenberger had the latest in a string of inconsistent performances but made enough big throws to sustain scoring drives, finishing 21 of 25 for 148 yards. He had one costly interception returned 70 yards by Jimmy Legree, setting up South Carolina’s first TD. Shaw finished 19 of 34 for 177 yards and two TDs, but was intercepted twice, once by Eric Reid to set up LSU’s go-ahead field goal in the fourth quarter, and then on the final desperate play by Craig Loston. Shaw also was sacked four times — twice by

defensive end Sam Montgomery. LSU limited South Carolina, led by star defensive end Jadeveon Clowney, to one sack by linebacker Shaq Wilson. LSU tamed the Gamecocks’ pass rush by pounding the ball on the ground, finishing with a whopping 258-34 advantage in yards rushing. “Tonight I realized why LSU was preseason No. 1. They can run the ball and stop the run,” South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier said. “That was the biggest dif ference in the game, probably.” LSU’s second field goal cut South Carolina’s lead to 14-13 early in the fourth quarter, then LSU was right back in scoring range when Shaw overthrew an open receiver and the ball landed in Reid’s lap. Reid returned it to the Gamecocks 22, then LSU drove to the 5 before settling for its third field goal to take a 16-14 lead. Marcus Lattimore had a quiet night by his standards, gaining only 35 yards on 13 carries, but gave the Gamecocks a 1410 lead in the third quarter when he impressively broke Reid’s tackle on a 2-yard scoring run. Under heavy criticism after failing to produce a

touchdown in a loss a week earlier at Florida, LSU’s offense was down to only two opening day starters on the line because right guard Josh Williford was unable to retur n from a concussion and right tackle Alex Hurst was excused for personal reasons. The unit opened impressively by driving 69 yards on 16 plays, but settled for a field goal after freshman right tackle Vadal Alexan-
der, elevated to starter two weeks earlier, was flagged for a false start on fourthand-goal from the 1. The Tigers were moving on their second series as well until Mettenberger’s only major mistake — Legree’s interception, which was returned to the LSU 1. That set up Ace Sanders’ short TD catch to give South Carolina a 7-3 lead early in the second quarter. After both teams’ first
four possessions, LSU had a 179-34 advantage in offensive yards, and a 10-2 advantage in first downs, but trailed 7-3. The Gamecocks were threatening to build on their lead late in the second quarter, but Josh Downs’ sack for a loss of 9 yards to the LSU 37 forced a punt. That allowed LSU to go back in front on Hill’s 7yard touchdown on the first series of the second half.

Week 6 preview: Packers playing spoilers?
A year ago, Green Bay was the hunted, spotless for three months before finally losing, but winding up 15-1 for the season. Now, the Packers are struggling and have become the spoiler in Week 6 as they face unbeaten Houston. When the NFL scheduled this game for prime time, it hoped to have a team with a per fect record. That it’s the Texans who are 5-0 for the first time in their history is a bit of a surprise. That Green Bay is 2-3 and can’t find the dominant passing of fense that it rode to such a gaudy record a year ago was not in NBC’s plans. Nor the Packers’. “Being 2-3 isn’t where we expected to be, but we finally get a regular week where we have some time,” Packers linebacker Clay Matthews said. “I know Houston’s coming off a Monday night game so they’ll have a short week. “Ultimately, you have to have a short memory in this game. We let one get away from us last week (at Indianapolis), but we still have all the pieces of the puzzle and look forward to hopefully getting a victory this Sunday.” The Texans have been the league’s most balanced team, and their defense, even without star linebacker Brian Cushing (on injured reserve with a torn left knee ligament), could give Green Bay fits. J.J. Watt is a force not only as a pass rusher with 7 1/2 sacks, but as a pass blocker. He’s been compared to a basketball center swatting away balls. “You’re not going to get a sack on every play or on most plays,” Watt said. “So you find ways to do other things to help, and that’s something I can do.” Also Sunday, Atlanta tries to remain unbeaten when it hosts Oakland; the New York Giants are at San Francisco; Dallas at Baltimore; Denver at San Diego; New England at Seattle; Minnesota at Washington; Detroit at Philadelphia; Buffalo at Arizona; St. Louis at Miami; Cincinnati at

turnovers with 11. “I expect everybody who gets close to me to be reaching for the football,” he said. “It’s totally my responsibility to take care of the football and ... it’s something that I (have to get) corrected. I set a goal for (reducing) interceptions and now I have to set another goal.” Detroit’s goal is simply to get a win after three straight losses.
Green Bay’s Aaron Rodgers throws a pass during his team’s loss to Indianapolis last week. Rodgers and the Packers square off with the unbeaten Texans today. Cleveland; Indianapolis at the New York Jets; and Kansas City at Tampa Bay. The week’s action began Thursday night with Tennessee beating Pittsburgh 26-23. Off this week are Carolina (14), Chicago (4-1), Jacksonville (14) and New Orleans (1-4).
Oakland (1-3) at Atlanta (5-0) The Falcons would appear to have the easier road to 6-0, a record they haven’t managed since, well, ever. Oakland comes off a bye, but was awful in a 37-6 loss at Denver before that. The Raiders have been outscored 7219 on the road, this is a long trip, and Atlanta’s plus-10 turnover margin leads the NFL. “We have an offensive mentality in ter ms of what we’re doing defensively,” coach Mike Smith said. “We’re attacking the foot-

ball.” Atlanta is off next week, so a victory here would make for a sweet break.
New York Giants (3-2) at San Francisco (4-1) A rematch of the NFC championship game in January that the Giants survived in overtime before beating New England in the Super Bowl. The 49ers have upgraded their offense and are just as formidable on defense, while the Giants haven’t found the overpowering pass rush that catapulted them to the NFL title. This one could be won on the ground, where San Francisco ranks first in yards gained as Frank Gore and Kendall Hunter each are averaging 5.4 yards an attempt, and backup quarterback Colin Kaepernick is contributing in the wildcat. New York’s Ahmad Bradshaw rushed for 200 yards last Sunday to enliven the Giants’ run game. But Cleveland’s defense hardly resembles San Francisco’s.
Dallas (2-2) at Baltimore (4-1) The Ravens never have lost to the Cowboys — it’s only three meetings — but they face a rested Dallas team coming off a bye with a bit of desperation. Dallas has been among the most erratic of NFL teams, plagued by turnovers and dropped passes on offense, and a mediocre run defense. All of those ills can be exploited by Baltimore, which also has been inconsistent, yet still is winning, especially at home. The Ravens are after their 14th straight home victory in the regular season, and under John Harbaugh, who got the job over current Dallas coach Jason Garrett, they are 8-0 in Baltimore against NFC opponents, Ravens guard Bobbie Williams came to Baltimore this year after spending eight years with division rival Cincinnati. “From a visitor’s perspective, it is very hard, especially when you’re going against the Ravens’ defense,” he said. “And then there’s the fans. The stadium gets really loud. You’ve got a defense over there moving and shifting and swarming, and you’re trying

to communicate with a guy you can barely hear. It can be a tad bit intimidating.”
Denver (2-3) at San Diego (3-2), MNF San Diego is one of the few teams Peyton Manning has struggled against in his illustrious career, and now he’s in the same division. The winner will lead the weak AFC West. The Chargers have won five of the last six matchups and twice knocked Indianapolis and Manning from the playoffs. “From a personal standpoint Peyton has always been a favorite of mine, back when I was in high school in Alabama,” Chargers QB Philip Rivers said. “It’s always special playing a Peyton Manning-led team. We’re playing for a two-game lead in the division at the bye. If that doesn’t get you fired up, nothing will.”
New England (3-2) at Seattle (3-2) New England’s top-rated offense (in yards gained) faces Seattle’s No. 1 defense in the same category, a rarity in the NFL. The last time this happened so late in the season was 2007, and it also involved the Patriots, who were setting all sorts of scoring and passing records. Now, the Pats are a force running the ball with Stevan Ridley, who is fifth in the league with 490 yards and has scored four times. “A lot of people key on (Tom Brady) and our running back group has to get some pressure off him so he can be the quarterback he can be,” Ridley said. “If they’re sitting back there staring Brady in the face every play, we can’t be a one-dimensional offense.” For mer Patriots coach Pete Carroll (before he became a championship winner at Southern Cal) has built one of the most physical defenses around and a victory over New England would enhance the Seahawks’ reputation.
Minnesota (4-1) at Washington (2-3) The Vikings visit the nation’s capital for the third straight year, and they won the previous two games in down seasons. Now, they appear to be on the rise, sparked by the rapid recovery of Adrian Peterson, who again is one of the league’s top runners after tearing knee ligaments near the end of 2011. With Chicago idle, the Vikes would be alone in first place in the NFC North with a win. Washington expects to have rookie QB Robert Griffin III available after he sustained a concussion in last Sunday’s loss to Atlanta. The Redskins also have another rookie weapon on offense in running back Alfred Morris, averaging 4.9 yards a try for the league’s No. 4 rushing attack.
Detroit (1-3) at Philadelphia (3-2) Expectations that these would be two of the most dynamic NFL teams have fizzled, although the Eagles are in first place in the NFC East. Philly is damaging itself with sloppiness: 14 giveaways, including eight fumbles, and a minus-7 turnover differential. That has offset some solid defensive work. Quarterback Michael Vick has been the main contributor to the
Buffalo (2-3) at Arizona (4-1) After a horrible performance in San Francisco, the Bills headed to the desert. No, they weren’t being punished, just prudent, avoiding thousands of miles in travel back and forth. “I had talked to a couple of teams who had done it like this before when you have back-toback weeks on the (West) Coast,” coach Chan Gailey said. “They said that they felt like the trip back-and-forth twice took a lot out of you as a football team trying to adjust to time and all of that. “I had never done it but it made sense to me that it takes some wear and tear off of your players being on that plane.” They’ll face a well-rested Cardinals team that lost for the first time a week ago Thursday in St. Louis, but one with a severe hole in the backfield. Both starting running back Beanie Wells and backup Ryan Williams are out, although Wells could retur n around Thanksgiving.
St. Louis (3-2) at Miami (2-3) What looked like a dog of a matchup when the schedule came out has a lot more interest as both the Rams and Dolphins have been better than anticipated. Miami isn’t far away from a 41 record, has the league’s stingiest run defense and has been surprisingly efficient on offense behind rookie QB Ryan Tannehill and a revamped receiving corps. The Rams won two games a year ago, and new coach Jef f Fisher has them beyond that already. Anyone wonder why Fisher had his choice of jobs when he decided to return to the league this year? “Everyone just feeds of f of coach Fisher’s confidence,” quarterback Sam Bradford said. “I think in this locker room this year, everyone believes, everyone thinks that if we go out and do our job, we have a shot to win.”
Cincinnati (3-2) at Cleveland (0-5) The league’s only winless team keeps games relatively close, but youthful mistakes do in the Browns every week. They’ve already lost at Cincinnati, 34-27 in Week 2. If this game is close in the final quarter, the Bengals are in excellent shape: Andy Dalton has the NFL’s best quarterback rating in the fourth period, 127.7. He’s also 3-0 against Cleveland, but the Browns have this going for them: They lead the AFC with seven picks.
Indianapolis (2-2) at New York Jets (2-3) Fresh off one of the more emotional games — and wins — in team history, the Colts head to the Meadowlands, where the Jets found a little bit of fire last weekend, too. But they didn’t win. Indianapolis rallied to upset Green Bay and paid tribute to ill coach Chuck Pagano afterward, dedicating the game and awarding the game ball to Pagano, who is battling leukemia. The way Andrew Luck and Reggie Wayne were connecting in that one, New York’s secondary, minus All-Pro cornerback Darrelle Revis, is in for a difficult test.
Kansas City (1-4) at Tampa Bay (1-3) Here’s a couple of clubs with high hopes entering 2012 that now are teetering. Kansas City tur ns to Brady Quinn, who replaces Matt Cassel after the QB was ruled out with a concussion sustained last week. The Chiefs have been their own worst enemies, leading the league in giveaways (19), fumbles lost (10), interceptions thrown (9) and at the bottom with a minus-15 turnover margin that is astoundingly inept for five games. The Buccaneers are vulnerable in the air, ranking 32nd against the pass and 29th trying to complete them.

their 48-45 win at Texas, but against the Red Raiders they made just one of six. â€œThose guys did a great job of just attacking us,â€? Smith said. â€œThey attacked us the entire game.â€? Doege had one interception, an improvement over the five heâ€™d thrown in the previous two games. â€œHe came out and played loose and he was on-point today,â€? Texas Tech offensive coordinator Neal Brown said. The win for Texas Tech was the second over a top 10 team in as many seasons. The Red Raiders beat then-No. 3 Oklahoma 41-38 to break the Soonersâ€™ 39-game win streak in Norman. On seven first-half possessions
the Red Raiders scored touchdowns on five. Texas Tech wasnâ€™t as efficient in the second half but by then they were so far ahead it didnâ€™t matter. Doege said his protection was key. â€œItâ€™s huge for a quarterback to sit back there,â€? Doege said. â€œWe had a lot of opportunities to get the ball downfield, and if they play the way they played today, itâ€™s just going to continue and weâ€™re going to make plays. We have so many weapons that we can expose at any time.â€? Known as a passer, Doege even ran for a first down on fourth-and 3 near the end of a drive that led to a 14-0 lead for the Red Raiders. â€œI about fell out when he ran the ball, and he made a couple of first downs,â€? Texas Tech coach Tommy Tuberville said. â€œHeâ€™s hard-nosed.â€? The Mountaineers fell short of
their scoring average (52) by 38 points and got just one touchdown in the second half. Even that came when the game was already out of reach. Dustin Garrison scored on a 2-yard run in the fourth quarter to make it 4914. The Mountaineers had the third-worst pass defense coming into the game (336 yards) and didnâ€™t do anything to improve on that. â€œIt was a poor per for mance defensively ... and itâ€™s just a team loss,â€? Mountaineers coach Dana Holgorsen said. â€œThey outplayed us. They outcoached us. On all three sides of the ball they did better than we did.â€? The Red Raiders, meanwhile, started fast and kept the Mountaineers off balance. By the time it was all over, they had 168 rushing yards on 29 carries and passed the ball 43 times. Doege said the game showed
Sunday, October 14, 2012 how well the Red Raiders can play and how much a good defense can help. â€œItâ€™s totally different from last year,â€? Doege said who last season saw the Red Raiders defense finish near the bottom of the nation in several categories then. â€œIf we got down or whatever the case may be, we might have pressed a little bit. But we know that our defense is playing at a high level right now, and I was just blown away by their per for mance today.â€? After the Mountaineers failed to convert on fourth-and-3 deep in Texas Tech territory, Doege needed just three plays to get his third touchdown of the game. The senior quarterback first connected with Amaro on a short pass along the near sideline and the receiver turned it into a 61-yard gain â€” Texas Techâ€™s longest play from scrimmage this season â€” to the Mountaineers 21.
Two plays later, Doege hit Marcus Kennard for 16-yard touchdown pass to put the Red Raiders up 21-7. Texas Techâ€™s offense already was in rhythm by then, going up 14-0 in the first quarter. Doege hit a wide-open Amaro over the middle at about the 20-yard line and he ran it in for a 39-yard touchdown on the Red Raiders first possession. Doege then found Eric Ward on a fade route on the far corner of the end zone to put Texas Tech ahead 14-0. The Mountaineers answered, momentarily. Smith started with a short field after the Red Raiders squibbed the kickoff. Five plays later Stedman Bailey dived to pull in a 7-yard touchdown pass from Smith and pull West Virginia within 14-7. The drive included a 38-yard pass from Smith to Tavon Austin.
Golf roundup: Mallinger leads Frys.com Open
SAN MAR TIN, Calif. (AP) â€” John Mallinger remained in position for his first PGA Tour victory, shooting a 1-under 70 on Saturday in the Frys.com Open to take a two-stroke lead into the final round. The 33-year-old Mallinger had a 15-under 198 total at CordeValle after opening with a 66 and matching the course record with a 62 on Friday. â€œI just didnâ€™t have it all. I didnâ€™t drive it as well as I did yesterday,â€? Mallinger said. â€œI think I hit every fairway yesterday, and then today I just got off to a weird start. But I hung around there and made some birdies on the back nine that got me back into position. Still got lead, still got a good spot, and look forward to tomorrow.â€? He has finished second twice in his sevenyear career on the tour, losing in a playoff to Bo Van Pelt in Milwaukee in 2009. Mallinger had the third-round lead for the second time in his career. He shared the lead at the 2009 Byron Nelson Championship and ended up tying for sixth. â€œIâ€™m going to still stay aggressive and try to make as many birdies as possible,â€? Mallinger said. â€œItâ€™s going to be a birdie day. I mean, itâ€™s supposed to be nice tomorrow.â€? Swedenâ€™s Jonas Blixt was second after a 66. He birdied five of the last eight holes. â€œThe front nine is a little harder,â€? said Blixt, coming off a third-place finish last

â€œJust the game of football is great, but this game in particular, thereâ€™s something about it,â€? Jones said. â€œThereâ€™s something about the atmosphere â€” the crimson versus the burnt orange and just this rivalry. Thereâ€™s something special about it. Iâ€™ve just been so thankful that Iâ€™ve been able to play in this game.â€? The Longhorns (3-2, 1-2 Big 12) couldnâ€™t get a stop and never got their offense going, then lost quarterback David Ash to an apparent left wrist injury when they were trailing 498 in the fourth quarter. Ash grasped at his left hand after getting hit by Oklahomaâ€™s Chuka Ndulue after heâ€™d released what turned out to be his final pass attempt of the game. He headed to the locker room, pointing to the sky with his right hand and a towel over his bruised and swollen left wrist.
week in Las Vegas. â€œThe back nine you can make a couple birdies. Hopefully, I can finish like I did today. He had a simple game plan for Sunday. â€œMake birdies,â€? Blixt said. Charles Howell III and Jason Kokrak were 12 under. Howell had a 66, and Kokrak shot 67. â€œItâ€™ll be a shootout tomorrow,â€? Howell said. â€œThe greens are so soft and there will be a lot of birdies, but at least I have a chance.â€? He won the last of two tour titles in 2007. Kokrak is in his first year on the tour after winning twice late last year on the Web.com Tour. â€œThis is the first time I put myself in really good position,â€?
