Agencies investigate officer-involved shooting JESSICA PALMER RECORD STAFF WRITER
Roswell had another officer-involved shooting, Monday night, when officers from the Roswell Police Department received a call about a subject driving around town who was armed and potentially suicidal. Of ficers contacted the man, Richard Johnson, near the Town Plaza Apartments, 1201 W. McGaffey
St. According to police daily records, Johnson shot at the of ficers. Of ficers returned fire. Sgt. Cruz Zavala was shot on the breastplate of his police-issue armor and sustained a minor injury. He was taken to a local hospital where he was treated for his injuries and released. Johnson, 35, was also struck by gunfire. According to the RPD press release, Johnson was flown
to Lubbock for further medical treatment and underwent surgery. A multijurisdictional team, comprised of the RPD, New Mexico State Police and the Chaves County Sheriff’s Office, was in meetings all day while investigating the incident. Several of ficers were involved. The RPD release stated: “Officers involved in the incident are on administrative leave per standard Roswell Police Department
policy.” Zavala’s name is confirmed. The other officers’ names have not yet been released. Meanwhile, a cloud of fear has descended upon the city, after two confirmed murders, two officer-involved shootings and bombs found within the city limits in a single week. One woman reported she had a police scanner and was getting it out so she could keep track of things. Another said she had

President Barack Obama has signed a disaster declaration to provide federal aid to New Mexico for mid-September flooding and storm damage. The White House says the federal assistance will supplement state and local recovery ef forts in the affected areas. According to the White House, the declaration means federal funding is available on a cost-sharing basis with state and local governments and certain nonprofits for emergency work and repair or replacement of damaged facilities. The counties where the funding is available are Catron, Chaves, Cibola, Colfax, Eddy, Guadalupe, Los Alamos, McKinley, Mora, Sandoval, San Miguel, Santa Fe, Sierra, Socorro, and Torrance.
On Oct. 22, New Mexico lawmakers urged the president to respond quickly to separate requests for disaster assistance for the state and Santa Clara Pueblo. In a release, several legislators thanked the president for the declaration. “This assistance is badly needed in communities that sustained severe damage to roads, bridges, dams and other structures,” said Sen. Tom Udall. Sen. Martin Heinrich said that he is “pleased that President Obama has taken action and quickly responded to our requests for federal disaster assistance for the state and Santa Clara Pueblo.” Rep. Steve Pearce said the declaration “opens up key resources to help New Mexico recover and move forward.”
ALBUQUERQUE (AP) — David Hall was afraid of his own son. They were getting into violent, physical fights requiring police intervention. Fearing the teen would end up in juvenile detention, Hall had his son hauled away in handcuffs and shackles to a southern New Mexico ranch for troubled youths. He didn’t see him again for 11 months, when police raided the Tierra Blanca ranch amid allegations of abuse. There are few options for parents like Hall, and in that vacuum, a relatively
unregulated, off-the-grid industry of reform youth camps has flourished, despite a decade of highprofile cases alleging beatings and other abuse at some camps. Proponents of such programs — which can cost upward of $100,000 a year — say they are an effective, last-ditch solution to save troubled youth from the criminal justice system. “My feeling is that I would rather have my 17year -old son in shackles than go to visit him at 18 in
He noted that the incidents that have occurred in Roswell and Chaves County have found their reflection across the state and urged people to be proactive in helping the police.
Republican mayoral candidate Dennis Kintigh expressed his sympathy for local law enforcement. “They are tired, not only from the long hours, but stress and working in a state of high tension.”

Intel chief: US spies on allies — they do it, too
Director of National Intelligence James Clapper testifies on Capitol Hill, Tuesday, before the House Intelligence Committee hearing on potential changes to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA).
Officials sued by man with West Nile virus
SANTA FE (AP) — A federal appeals court is allowing a Texas man to sue southern New Mexico officials for not promptly providing him medical care after being arrested for drunken driving although he was suffering from West Nile virus. The Denver -based 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Monday turned down a request by Eddy County officials to reject a lawsuit by Irving Marquez of El Paso, who was arrested by a sheriff’s deputy in 2009. Marquez couldn’t keep his balance when he got out of his pickup truck. He failed a field sobriety test although a chemical breath analysis showed no alcohol. He wasn’t evaluated for illness until hours later when his condition deteriorated. Marquez was rushed to a hospital but suffered permanent injuries from brain swelling.
Santa Fe National Forest offering field trips
SANTA FE (AP) — The Santa Fe National Forest is hosting field trips for the public to lear n about planned restoration efforts for the southwest Jemez mountains. The free trips are being offered Nov. 8 and 9 to various locations in the forest with specialists who manage the landscape. The Southwest Jemez
Mountains Restoration project aims to make a 110,000-acre landscape in the mountains less susceptible to the effects of wildfires, insects and disease outbreaks and climate change. The proposal would restore meadows and streams, relocate some campsites, thin overcrowded forests and remove fuels. All are welcome but reservations are required.

Kitten survives plunge down 90-foot shaft
CLOVIS (AP) — A kitten fell down a 90-foot intake shaft at a construction site at an eastern New Mexico lake but survived. The Clovis News Journal reports the kitten apparently had taken refuge for the night in a shed at the site at Ute Lake. When workers arrived Monday morning, the kitten ran out and scampered away. Workers later began hearing meows and then spotted the kitten at the bottom of the shaft. Project engineer Mitch Haskins says a worker descended to the bottom of the shaft, returning to the surface with the kitten in hand. It was frightened but appeared to not have visible physical injuries. Haskin says the works decided to call the kitten “Petty” after Tom Petty, the singer of “Free Fallin.”

WASHINGTON (AP) — Move over, website woes. Lawmakers confronted the Obama administration Tuesday with a difficult new health care problem — a wave of cancellation notices hitting small businesses and individuals who buy their own insurance. At the same time, the federal official closest to the website apologized for its dysfunction in new sign-ups and asserted things are getting better by the day. Medicare chief Marilyn Tavenner said it’s not the administration but insurers who are responsible for cancellation letters now reaching many of the estimated 14 million people who buy individual policies. And, officials said, people who get cancellation notices will be able to find better replacement plans, in some cases for
less. The Associated Press, citing the National Association of Insurance Commissioners, reported in May that many carriers would opt to cancel policies this fall and issue new ones. Administratively that was seen as easier than changing existing plans to comply with the new law, which mandates coverage of more services and provides better financial protection against catastrophic illnesses. While the administration had ample warning of the cancellations, they could become another public relations debacle for President Barack Obama’s signature legislation. This problem goes to the credibility of one of the president’s earliest promises about the health care overhaul: You can keep your plan if you like it. In the spring, state
TEEN DIES WHILE ‘VEHICLE SURFING’ An 18-year -old youth died in the county as a result of a tragic accident, Monday night. The incident occurred in the area around Old Clovis Highway and Bitter Lake Road. Chaves County Sheriff’s Office Lt. Daniel Ornelas said the young man was vehicle surfing, or standing on the hood of a truck while it was in motion. “He lost his balance,
slipped and fell in front of the vehicle.” Ornelas reported that the vehicle was not going fast. “The driver was unable to stop in time. He was distraught when he heard his friend was dead.” The accident is still under investigation, but Ornelas said authorities learned that there was no alcohol involved.

insurance commissioners started giving insurers the option of canceling existing individual plans for 2014, since the coverage required under Obama’s law is more robust. Some states directed insurers to issue cancellations. Large employer plans that cover most workers and their families are unlikely to be affected. The cancellation notices are now reaching policyholders, and they’ve been complaining to their lawmakers — who were grilling Tavenner on Tuesday. “Based on what little information the administration has disclosed, it turns out that more people have received cancellation notices for their health care plans this month than have enrolled in the (health care website),” said Ways and Means Chairman Dave Camp, R-Mich.
The photograph that accompanied the Lantern Tours story on page A-1 of Tuesday’s newspaper had the incorrect information. The photograph is actually of Larry Pope, taken as he lit a lantern at Fort Stanton during the Lantern Tours, Saturday evening.
He cited a news report of 146,000 cancellations in his state alone. Up and down the dais, lawmakers chimed in with stories of constituents who had received similar notices. Republicans offered examples of people being asked to pay more. Democrats countered by citing constituents who had been able to find lower-cost coverage than they have now. Ranking Democrat Sander Levin of Michigan said one of his constituents has been paying $800 a month for a BlueCrossBlueShield plan and managed to find comparable coverage for $77, after tax credits that lower the premiums. Still, Levin added, “this has become a matter of legitimate discussion.” It could take months to sort out the balance of individual winners and losers.

He said during his 50 years working in intelligence it was “a basic tenet” to collect, whether by spying on communications or through other sources, confidential information about foreign leaders that reveals “if what they’re saying gels with what’s actually going on.”

shackles in state prison,” Hall said. “He really is a changed young man. He laughs, he smiles and he is trying to make up for all of the bad things in the past.” Others insist stronger regulation and oversight is needed. A 2007 Government Accountability Office found thousands of allegations of abuse at such facilities from 1990 to 2007, including 1,619 reports against residential program staff members in 33 states in 2005. The GAO said it could not identify a more comprehensive number because it could not locate a single website, federal agency, or other entity that collects comprehensive nationwide data. The National Association of Therapeutic Schools and Programs, a trade association that represents about 150 programs, estimates there are about 400 programs operating in the country. But executive director Cliff Brownstein admits that is just a rough guess based on a recruitment list, and he adds that many programs wouldn’t qualify to belong to his association because it requires members to be licensed by the state or otherwise certified by one of several independent bodies. That is one of the biggest problems in assessing such programs: How do you verify information from troubled kids? At New Mexico’s Tierra Blanca ranch, for instance, some students allege they were beaten, starved and denied medical care. Others, like Hall’s son Bryce, deny any abuse or neglect. “There is not a teenager alive that wants to be in one of those programs,” said Mark Sklarow, executive director of the Independent Educational Consultants

Association, a nonprofit in Fairfax, Va., that helps families find the right programs for their troubled children. “You take a kid playing video games all day doing drugs with his buddies. You ship him off to one of these programs, they are going to say anything to get home.” Further exacerbating the problem is that many of the homes, like Tierra Blanca, are unlicensed and operate in remote Western states. They can prey on anxious parents in desperate situations, some facing court deadlines to place their child in a residential treatment program or have them sent to juvenile detention, he said. Sklarow says the programs vary widely. Some are staffed by doctors and psychologists, others hire people with no training and who have their own past behavioral and addiction issues. Although the NATSP says roughly 40 states have some sort of regulation over the programs, oversight and licensing procedures vary widely. For instance, its website lists New Mexico as having regulations, but state officials say there is no law requiring that programs be licensed or otherwise supervised. State officials say they will seek a new law to change that next year. Scott Chandler’s Tierra Blanca ranch has been operating in New Mexico for some 20 years, charging parents roughly $100 a day. Earlier this month, authorities raided the ranch to take possession of nine minors. State police have identified Chandler as a person of interest in their investigation, but he has not been arrested or charged. Chandler continues to operate his program with a few 18-yearolds. Chandler said teens were sometimes shackled and that parents were aware of the practice. He denies children were abused. ma propuesta de un nuevo plan de financiación elegido por la agencia del estado Human Services Department (HSD), el programa Indigente en hospitales será reemplazado por el Uncompensated Care Pool (UC Pool) en algunos o todos los hospitales.

Halloween décor a family affair for Nunez JILL MCLAUGHLIN RECORD STAFF WRITER
One gravestone reads, “Here lies Les Moore, Shot with a .44. No Les. No Moore.” Two bloodshot eyeballs poke through the surrounding dirt. Across the pathway, a pumpkin-headed man sits at a check-in desk. He holds a shovel and a pen, eagerly waiting for guests to sign his guest book. “Everybody asks me about all the graves. I tell them, they’re all my ex-husbands,” Veronica Nunez joked. “I tell them, I’m still waiting for the next one!” Nunez’s ghoulishly decorated yard is surrounded by a few humble homes on a short street. But while South Monroe Avenue may be modest in size, Nunez helps the spirit of Halloween loom large over it every year. Visitors have to muster the courage to step over the grave of one man whose legs are strewn across the path to her door. Near the street, another site depicts a buried entity holding a hammer. “He was a contractor who did the wrong job, so I buried him,” Nunez said, laughing. “The first time we did him, I had nightmares about him all night.” Nunez has stories to tell about each character. “I love to decorate for everything, especially for Christmas” she said. “I go all the way out.” The 62-year-old born and raised Roswell resident first began decorating her home 10 years ago. Since she began, the others on her small block have started getting into the spirit.

Chaves County normalmente recibe $6 millones de fondos de SCP después de combinar los ingresos del condado con fondos federales. Otra propuesta de HSD permite que los condados contribuyen una mitad de los impuestos descritos para financiar el reembolso de Medicaid. En esta propuesta, los condados pueden guardar la otra mitad para continuar a dar fondos al Indigente. Condados que eligen guardar la otra mitad no recibirían aumento de fondos del gobierno para esta parte, y no serian elegibles para fondos de UC Pool. Una consecuencia de las dos propuestas es que algunos proveedores de atención de salud en

across the porch. Vehicles pass often at night, when Nunez lights up her yard, and they ask to take photos, she said. “My little one likes to decorate too,” she said. Across the street, her nephew’s three small children visit every day to see her and check out the yard in anticipation of Halloween night. “They are so crazy over this stuff. They look forward to it,” Nunez said. “They can hardly wait. I do it mostly for the kids.” But she admits she also gets into the spirit. “I always get dressed up, too,” she said. “You name it, I’ve been it.” She waits until Halloween night. All of the neighborhood kids, most of whom are family, call her “T.” (A nickname for auntie.) “All these are my kids,” she said. “This neighborhood takes care of everybody. We’re all like family. “I would never move from here, unless I join one of my exes,” she laughed, and pointed to the yard.

Tips for a safe Halloween Halloween can be filled with goblins, ghouls and frightening sights around every corner. Experts offer the following tips for parents to help keep their trick-or -treaters safe. • The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention cautions parents to examine all treats for choking hazards and tampering before allowing children to eat them. Parents should limit how much candy their child eats. To be safe, only eat factory-wrapped treats. • Costumes should be safe, the CDC warns. Swords, knives and other costume accessories should be short, soft and flexible. Reflective tape should be fastened to costumes and bags to help drivers see children. • Carry a flashlight at night to help others see
del Indigente, “eso tendría un efecto serio en el financiamiento total y la viabilidad de nuestra clínica.” Unos grupos que continuaran a necesitar los fondos incluyen inmigrantes indocumentados e inmigrantes quienes viven en el país legalmente pero no han establecido residencia permanente. Estos grupos no califican para Medicaid o planes subsidiados que son ofrecidos como parte de la reforma del sistema de atención de salud. Montaño dijo que es importante que estos grupos sigan teniendo cubertura. Si no tienen cubertura medica y se infectan con enfermedades transmitibles, habrá un problema de salud publico, dijo. UC Pool puede cubrir reclamaciónes de estos grupos. Sin embargo, Riggs dijo que es mas barato proporcionar atención en una clínica que la sala de emergencia. Vicepresidente y Jefe de
you and to help you see others. Also, look before walking across the street and use crosswalks when possible.
• Only visit well-lit houses and don’t stop at dark houses. • Never walk near lit candles and be sure children wear flame-resistant costumes.
• For motorists, Safe Kids.org cautions them to slow down and be especially alert in residential neighborhoods. Enter and exit driveways and alleys slowly and carefully.
Popular trick-or-treating hours are 5:30 to 9:30 p.m. Drivers are asked to turn their headlights on earlier in the day to spot children at a greater distance and eliminate all distractions while driving.
Finanzas de Lovelace Stephen Forney tiene un punto de vista más positiva sobre el impacto posible del programa SCP. Dijo que espera que la implementación del UC Pool haga más fácil el proceso de aplicar para compensación de reclamaciónes no compensadas. “El proceso de Indigente en este tiempo es un proceso complicado, y requiere que mandemos información al condado para que sea procesada, y luego al estado, que también la procesa,” dijo. “Todo eventualmente regresa a los hospitales.” Lovelace informó $82.5 millones en reclamaciónes no compensadas en sus ubicaciónes en todo el estado en el año fiscal 2012. ENMMC dijo que esta mirando los cambios de atención de salud en New Mexico. El hospital no dió más información.

Advice to GOP: Put on a happy face A4 Wednesday, October 30, 2013
“Bye Bye Birdie” is an old musical that survives in high school productions and in some people’s memory bank. It debuted on Broadway in 1960 and was made into a film in 1963. One of the songs from the show might serve as an inspiration, if not a theme, for Republicans in the winter of their discontent over President Obama and congressional Democrats: “Put on a Happy Face.” A problem Republicans have had since the “glory days” of Ronald Reagan is that too many have forgotten how to be positive and affirming. Nobody likes to be around a sourpuss. Polls indicate that a growing number of us are tired of President Obama’s nonstop TV appearances and his view that government is our nanny and will take care of everyone, except the rich and successful, who must be punished for being rich and successful with higher taxes and more regu-

lations. John F. Kennedy struck the right note in his 1960 presidential campaign. “We can do better,” he said. While he was critical of the policies of President Eisenhower and Vice President Richard Nixon, Kennedy focused mostly on the future. Americans are aware of the problems. They want to be told how they can best be solved. They also remember there was a time when we did better. This was the true spirit of
Roswell Daily Record
Ronald Reagan, whom Republicans like to identify with, but too many don’t emulate. Consider Reagan’s perfectly crafted State of the Union Address on Jan. 25, 1984. Reagan first recalled the recent past: “As we came to the decade of the ’80s, we faced the worst crisis in our postwar history. In the ’70s were years of rising problems and falling confidence. There was a feeling government had grown beyond the consent of the governed. Families felt helpless in the face of mounting inflation and the indignity of taxes that reduced reward for hard work, thrift, and risk-taking. All this was overlaid by an ever-growing web of rules and regulations. “On the international scene, we had an uncomfortable feeling that we’d lost the respect of friend and foe. Some questioned whether we had the will to defend peace and freedom.”
Then came the pivot. Having reminded voters of the problem, Reagan reached deep into America’s soul, tapping into a blocked vein of optimism: “But America is too great for small dreams. There was a hunger in the land for a spiritual revival, if you will, a crusade for renewal. The American people said: ‘Let us look to the future with confidence, both at home and abroad. Let us give freedom a chance.’ “Americans were ready to make a new beginning....” Too great for small dreams. What an inspirational line. Reagan believed the strength of America was not in Washington, but in the people. If the people can catch that larger vision, he believed, they could fulfill their greater dreams. This is what too many Republicans seem to have forgotten. They debate the size and cost of government, but ignore the one thing
that will reduce that size and cost more than anything else: selfreliance. To paraphrase that famous line from Kennedy’s inaugural address: Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for yourself. Liberty isn’t just a word that ought to be applied to governmental structures. Liberty is mainly individual: liberty from debt; liberty from dependence on others; liberty to make personal choices and not be dictated to by government. Got it, GOP? All together now: “Take off the gloomy mask of tragedy, It’s not your style; You’ll look so good that you’ll be glad Ya’ decided to smile!” An added benefit is that Democrats will wonder what you’re up to.

Christie shows GOP the way on marriage
Republican Gov. Chris Christie has dropped his legal challenge to same-sex marriage in New Jersey. Gov. Christie, a formerly vocal opponent of gay marriage, when the New Jersey State Supreme Court unanimously refused to block nuptials while he appealed and indicated such an appeal was virtually assured defeat, decided enough was enough. His decision is good for gay couples, good for New Jersey, good for Chris Christie and good for the Republican Party. A recent Rutgers/Eagleton Poll shows support for gay marriage in New Jersey at 61 percent, with 12 percent undecided and 27 percent opposed; even a majority of Garden State Republicans support gay marriage.
A quarter of current supporters say they were previously opposed. Meaning minds are being changed as gay Americans become more visible and more relatable.
Nationally, 52 percent of Republican and Republican-leaning voters under age 50 support gay marriage. If you look at Republicans under 30, that number jumps to more than 80 percent. Younger Republicans want to be on the side of personal choice and freedom, not on the side of vocally anti-gay regimes like Russia and Iran.
The public is far in advance of lawmakers on this issue. They know gay people personally; as family members, friends and coworkers. They know allowing them the freedom to marry is no threat to American values or the institution of marriage.
The battle for same-sex marriage has been long, but the massive shift in public opinion dictates that the debate is largely over. To continue futilely fighting against the tide of history will only poison the conservative brand for the next generation of voters. Gays who are allowed to marry are more likely to hold conservative views. They are more likely to be homeowners. They are statistically wealthier than heterosexuals and likely to be politically active as donors and volunteers. They are more likely to have children, and voters with children lean conservative.
Some argue that, while same-sex couples can raise a child, a male/female married couple is more optimal. But, in a nation where 30 percent of children live in singleparent households, holding out for the “optimal” family could be like a starving man refusing a meal because he would rather have filet mignon.
The case for Republicans going conservative BY MARK SHIELDS
The Republican family argument has gone public. Warring camps within the GOP agree that their party has lost the national popular vote in five of the past six presidential elections. But they disagree vehemently about what to do about it. One group of Republicans — whom, for lack of imagination, we will call the Shirts — blames the party’s failure to change with the changing times. The Shirts want the party to become, in their words, more moder n and practical in order to reach
beyond the party’s limited base of support to nonwhite and, especially, younger voters. The Skins’ explanation for the defeats, not surprisingly, is the total opposite, faulting party leaders and candidates for not standing strong and true to the GOP’s core, conservative convictions. The Republican Skins argue that American voters, when given a choice between a watered-down version of the opposition party and the genuine opposition itself, will choose the real thing instead of a transparently counterfeit concoction. After all, what was Mitt
Romney’s strongest political credential? That he had won in Massachusetts, the bluest of blue states. John McCain, before him, had been almost universally praised for his willingness to break with Republican orthodoxy and to work collegially in the Senate with Democrats. For this, Romney in 2012 collected a grand total of 7 percent of Democratic votes, and in 2008, 90 percent of Democrats chose not to back candidate McCain. Yet Ronald Reagan — a full-blooded, cardcarrying conservative — won the support of more than 1 in 4 Democratic voters.
Their Republican Party, Skins are happy to point out, has had only one huge electoral victory in the past 25 years. That, of course, was in 2010, when, led by tea party candidates, the GOP ran an unapologetically conservative campaign and achieved a net gain of 63 House seats. That 2010 landslide constituted the biggest Republican House victory in 64 years. So why not, Skins ask, repeat that winning 2010 formula in the next presidential election and give voters a real choice? Here is the answer. In
what position your body is in. BPPV occurs when tiny calcium crystals for m in the inner ear and become dislodged. They bang around the canals and touch the sensitive nerve endings inside. The brain starts to get conflicting signals. You experience this as a sensation of your body moving around in the world (or the world spinning around your body). If you have BPPV, simply looking up or rolling over in bed can dislodge crystals and cause brief bouts of extreme dizziness. Vertigo can feel like the room is spinning or as though you are spinning in the room. It can be just a sense of imbalance. It also can cause nausea, vomiting
and ringing in the ears. One treatment for BPPV is the Epley maneuver. In this maneuver, a doctor or physical therapist moves your head and body through a series of positions. You can also learn to do it yourself. You begin by lying on an examination table. The therapist gently moves your head to the left and right, then has you roll over and sit up. Each position moves the loose crystals through the ear canal, repositioning them to relieve symptoms. Your symptoms may improve in as little as 10 minutes. Your doctor also may provide specific exercises for you to continue
See SHIELDS, Page A5
Opponents of same-sex marriage promise Christie retribution. “Conservatives are looking for leaders who will sustain their commitment to unchanging principles,” said Peter Sprigg, senior fellow at the Family Research Council.
But when the beliefs and values of the public do change, it’s not a betrayal of principle to allow their will to be made law; it’s representative democracy in action. Conservatives should realize that using the force of government to impose moral choices on others assaults the liberty that makes the United States historically and socially unique in the world.
For more than a century, Democrats were the party of intolerance as they fought against civil rights in the South. But they shed the policy, and the stigma, and have reaped enormous electoral rewards in the process, turning foes into allies once they offered the promise of more freedom rather than less.
The Republican Party similarly would be very well advised to embrace gay and gayfriendly voters, who now are a majority and figure to become even more so in the future.

DEAR DOCTOR K: I suffer from benign paroxysmal positional vertigo. I’ve heard that something called the Epley maneuver may help. Could you explain what this is? DEAR READER: Vertigo is the sensation that either your body or your environment is moving, usually spinning. Vertigo can be a symptom of many different illnesses and disorders. The type of vertigo you have — benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV) — is the most common form. As you’ve probably experienced, simply changing the position of your head can cause a sudden spinning sensation. Inside the ear are three tiny canals that help us recognize

the position of our body in space and maintain balance. Inside the canals is fluid and tiny hairs attached to nerve endings. The way the fluid washes against the hairs changes when your body is in different positions. When the fluid moves the hairs, nerve signals are sent to the brain. Those signals get translated in a way that lets you know

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
Roots of shutdown
Dear Editor: Senators Harry Reid, Dick Durbin, Charles Schumer and President Obama profess to want to compromise with the Republicans on legislation. Yet, when the House of Representatives sends legislation to the Senate, the Senate Democrats say we will not negotiate. How can there ever be any substantive legislation when the Senate will not negotiate. It appears that Harry Reid and President Obama wanted to cause a partial shutdown of the government and they succeeded. Now, they will proclaim to the heavens that the awful tea party patriots are to blame for this debacle when they, all of the Democrats in Congress and the president are really the ones to blame. The Republicans did everything possible to avoid shutting down the government. The last continuing resolution sent to the Senate contained an amendment that everyone, including the President, all members of Congress and all federal employees must be covered by Obama care with no exemptions and no special subsidies. Harry Reid and the Democratic Senators defeated that amendment because they are a privileged class and the rules they make are for us and do not apply to them. Wake up America and see that the only people in Washington listening to you are the Republicans in the House of Representatives and about 14 senators like Ted Cruz and Mike Lee. Ken Hittle Roswell
Need for Congress?
Dear Editor: Given their track record what do we need a Congress for anyway? Instead of electing people who lie, steal, cheat, bite, kick and gouge and spend millions of dollars of other people’s money to get a job that on paper pays less than any of them could earn making an honest living so they can turn teenage bickering into a lucrative profession, perhaps we should do away with electing them and draft people to serve in Congress like we used to draft people for military service.

Block Party thank-you
Letter to the Editor: The Roswell Museum and Art Center’s 7th annual Block Party and Chalk Art Festival was a huge success. Quality entertainment, hands-on art stations, an art car, arts and crafts vendors, chalk art creations, and much more kept the 2,500-plus attendees engaged throughout the day. Such an endeavor takes the commitment and energy of many people including museum staff, the RMAC Board of Trustees, RMAC Foundation directors, and multiple volunteers, artists, and donors. Major sponsors for the event were the City of Roswell and the RMAC Foundation. Additional sponsors included Roswell Fine Arts League and Miniature Art Society, Pecos Valley Potters Guild, Ritter & Company, LLC, The Frame Shop, Martin’s Capital Café, Copy Rite, Hinkle,

the Republicans’ triumphant 2010 elections, just over 87 million voted. In 2012, when Barack Obama became the first U.S. president since Dwight Eisenhower to win more than 51 percent of the national vote in successive elections, 129 million Americans voted. It is not just that 42 million more voters turned out in the presidential year. It is who those voters were. Eighteen million of those who cast a ballot in 2012 but who had not done so in 2010 were Latino, African-American and Asian voters. An additional 8 million of the increased 2012 turnout came from the ranks of voters between the ages of 18 and 29. Put bluntly, the Democrats won 4 in 5 of the ballots cast by Asian, Latino and African-American voters — providing them in 2012 with a nearly 14 millionvote margin over Republicans.

2010, represented a substantially larger share of the 2012 electorate than did voters older than 65 and who are the least white age cohort in the nation — provided Democrats overall with close to a net 8 million-vote edge over Republicans. It’s highly unlikely that a take-noprisoners conservative campaign by the Republicans in 2016 would convert these growing constituencies of younger, nonwhite voters to their side. So unless the GOP can figure out a way of making sure that more than 40 million voters permanently stay home, the only logical course for the Republicans is to heed the counsel of the GOP’s Shirts and to figure out, in a hurry, how to credibly speak to the concerns and the hopes of voters who are increasingly less old, less white and less Republican.

The Epley maneuver, and several similar exercises, have given relief to many people with BPPV. Before these maneuvers were discovered, the vertigo would ultimately go away on its own, but it could take weeks. These maneuvers speed the improvement — from weeks to minutes.

Dear Editor: It is worth noting Switzerland is now passing government legislation restricting executive pay. Could it be the Swiss are getting tired of a fixed financial system whereby the rich keep getting richer? As I have said before, the consequences of 10,000 to 1 pay differentials in America are creating a new society in which children and working Americans are by far the losers. Whatever happened to the concept of fairness? Should we Americans ever believe unabashed greed is our salvation, then we should all think again, and again, and again. Jim Osborne Roswell
RE: Eastern New Mexico State Fair
Dear Editor: I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of the volunteers and organizers of the Eastern New Mexico State Fair. My family and I spent several hours at the fair this year and we enjoyed many of the exhibits and events. Putting on an event of this magnitude requires hundreds if not thousands of man hours, and I hope that this letter will serve as a small token of our gratitude for those well-spent hours. Both of my children had art entries and they both received ribbons for their contributions. My son, William, entered a Lego tractor that took four ribbons including “Junior Best of Show” for which he also got a check in the amount of $25. My daughter, Victoria, entered a drawing she did that was a cross between a landscape and portrait which earned her a second-place ribbon. I cannot tell you how excited these kids were to see ribbons hanging next to their entries. They are already planning for next year’s entries. Thank you again to all of the wonderful volunteers and organizers who make our ENMSF a success year after year. A special thank you to everyone in the FineArts Building that made my children’s fair experience extra special. You have helped create memories that will last them a lifetime.

Special military honors; ‘debunked’ stories A6 Wednesday, October 30, 2013
The cremated remains of 14 U.S. Armed Forces veterans who upon death went unclaimed by family members will be interred with full military honors at a special 2:15 p.m. funeral on Nov. 1 at the Santa Fe National Cemetery. The interments are in accordance with New Mexico’s Forgotten Heroes Burial Program, established by the New Mexico Department of Veterans’ Services to provide a military funeral — with an Honor Guard and Flag Fold Ceremony — for any honorably discharged veteran who upon death goes unclaimed by family members or friends. The Forgotten Heroes Burial Program is based on the department’s strong conviction that all honorably-discharged veterans have earned the right to be buried with honor and dignity as a result of their service to our country. The NMDVS will represent the citizens of New Mexico and serve as the family of record at the funeral. Gov. Susana Martinez is scheduled to attend and deliver the eulogy.
Scheduled to be interred are: Air Force Senior Airman Rodney Anderson, Navy HM3 Phillip Glenn Ar mstrong, Ar my Pfc. William Benson, Ar my Pfc. George Allen Blackwell, Navy PO3 Donald Allen Bradford, Army Pfc. Herbert Alanzo Coombs Jr., Ar my PV2 James Good, Ar my Pfc. James Jenkins, Marine Corps Pfc. Basil L yba, Army SP4 Edward Maniaci, Navy SN Donald Van Arsdale Maycrink Jr., Army SP5 Oscar Ray Payton, Navy SA Rudolph Leopold Romero, Army SP4 Edwin Johnson. The public is invited to join in this final salute for these 14 men from New Mexico who honorably served our country. As an added comment, let me
Roswell Daily Record
repeat the comment above, “all honorably-discharged veterans have ear ned the right to be buried with honor and dignity as a result of their service to our country.” Locally, your own Roswell Veterans Honor Guard carries out the mission of the NMDVS by providing funeral honors for all service men and women who were honorably discharged (any branch of service and any rank) by simply requesting from the funeral director in charge of the burial planning a military honors ceremony. The funeral home will contact the military honors team on behalf of the veteran’s family. Retired veterans are also entitled to an honors firing team for a rifle salute. Your local honor guard is composed of veterans from area veterans service organizations (under the command of yours truly) and active duty members of the New Mexico National Guard, under the command of Sgt. Casey Steely. Attention all Marines: I just recently received this communication. “Of interest to all Marines ... and to some of our close
friends/battle partners. Just spoke to Commandant of the Marine Corps. He wants to aggressively debunk the stories concerning the new Marine Corps covers. Three key points: 1) The president in no way, shape or form directed the Marine Corps to change our uniform cover. 2) We are looking for a new cover for our female Marines for one overriding reason: The former manufacturer went out of business. 3) The Marine Corps has zero intention of changing the male cover. Semper Fi, Lt Col. David Nevers, USMC, Public Af fairs of ficer, Office of the Commandant.” This should be welcome news to all Marines and “battle partners!” While on the subject of “debunking” stories, there’s a huge debunk necessary concerning the recent rally held in D.C. by veterans condemning the “shutdown” of the World War II Memorial near the Congress and the White House. According to our “stellar” national news networks (excluding Fox), those racist tea partiers organized the whole thing. Another in your face
lie. I happen to still be a member of the Norfolk Chapter 4 Disabled American Veterans and know first-hand, several Virginia, West Virginia, Tennessee, North and South Carolina chapters of the DAV, MOPH, Marine Corps League and others sent members and friends to that rally on their own, not tied to any “outside” organizing.
Here’s a thought. The Democrats, led by Nancy Pelosi, must have organized the illegal immigrant rally held the same day of the shutdown (using the same standards and “logic” of the mainstream media “reporters”). Several Democrat politicians were seen standing around Pelosi when she was “greeting,” at the specially erected public address podium, all (her) “illegal” constituents, while at the same time telling reporters “veterans weren’t on her agenda” when asked if she was going across the street to speak to the veterans. You can’t make this up, folks! God bless.

Harvey Dale Taylor
Funeral services for Harvey Dale Taylor, 80, loving husband, caring father, pappy to his grandkids and faithful friend to many, passed from this life on Oct. 25, 2013, in Roswell. Services will be held at Kirby-Smith-Rogers Funeral Home on Thursday, Oct. 31 at 10 a.m., with burial following at Lovington Cemetery. Mike Joy will officiate. Harvey was born on Feb. 13, 1933, in Lovington to Buzz and Minnie Taylor and was raised on the family ranches. He spent his early years like all other ranch kids, learning ranch life and working cattle from the time he was able to sit on a horse. He started school in Hope and also went to school in Lovington, and then finished his education graduating from Cloudcroft High School, where he met the love of his life, Francine Chandler. They were married in Mayhill on June 10, 1951, and went to San Diego, Calif. on their honeymoon and liked it so much they stayed. Harvey took work welding in the shipyards and Francine made their little bumper pull trailer into a home. They moved to Yuma, Ariz., for 13 years, where Harvey owned a water well drilling business. They finally made their home, back on the ranch in New Mexico, where Harvey took over the running of both ranches on the Penasco River and the Caprock, and Francine taught at Penasco School. They had four children:
Kevin, Kendall, Kim and Kent (the crazy K’s, as granddad Buzz called them.) Harvey and Francine also were blessed with 10 grandchildren and three great-grandchildren. Harvey lost Francine to breast cancer in 1986, and later married Francine’s college roommate and family friend, Nona Snow. They were happily married for 26 years and lived in Lovington. He was preceded in death by: Buzz and Minnie Taylor, Francine Taylor, Mandy Taylor and Nona Taylor. Harvey is survived by his children: Kevin Taylor, of Lovington, Kendall and Claudia Taylor, of Alamogordo, Kim and Jim Scroggin, of Artesia, and Kent and ReChele Taylor, of Roswell; his grandchildren: Chad Taylor and wife, Amanda, Zack Taylor and wife, Bonnie, Kendra Fuller and husband, Jason, Caitie Taylor, Claude Taylor, Tyler Scroggin and wife, Shasta, Staci Scroggin, Taryn Houghtalin and husband, Brian, and Bryce Taylor and his fiancée, Emily; and his great-grandchildren: Cole Taylor, Hobbes Taylor and Jaxon Houghtalin.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be sent to Lea County Cowboy Hall of Fame, 5317 Lovington Hwy, Hobbs, NM 88240. Condolences may be sent to kirbysmithrogers.com.

I took His hand when I heard Him call, I turned my back and left it all. I could not stay another day to laugh, to love, to work or play. Tasks left undone must stay that way. I found that peace at the close of the day. If my parting has left a void, Then fill it with remembered joy. A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss Ah, these things I, too, will miss. Be not burdened with time of sorrow, I wish for you the sunshine of tomorrow. My Life’s been full, I savored much. Good friends, good times, a loved one touched. Perhaps my time seemed all too brief Don’t lengthen it now with undue grief. Lift up your heart and share with me. God wanted me now; He set me free.

Roswell Daily Record
Senators bicker over state â€˜stand your groundâ€™ laws WASHINGTON (AP) â€” Trayvon Martinâ€™s mother told a panel of senators Tuesday that state â€œstand your groundâ€? self-defense laws do not work and must be amended, reviving the politically charged gun control issue a year ahead of the 2014 midterm elections. But little besides politics emerged from the session, held in the Senateâ€™s made-for-television hearing room. Democrats who hold majority power in the Senate and are trying to
keep it supported Sybrina Fultonâ€™s call. â€œThis law is an invitation for confrontation,â€? said Sen. Dick Durbin, DIll., who chaired the session. Republicans, led by Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas, said the matter should be left to the states that passed the laws. â€œThe states are doing quite well ... without our interference,â€? Rep. Louie Gohmert testified to the Senate Judiciary Committee.
Before signing herself, a woman looks at a large board with supportive messages for victims of Superstorm Sandy in the Midland Beach section of Staten Island, New York, Tuesday.
Resilience, recovery Texas AG seeks ruling on appeal on Sandy anniversary
of abortion law AUSTIN, Texas (AP) â€” A federal appeals court weighed whether to grant an emergency motion Tuesday that would allow some new Texas abortion restrictions to take effect, the latest step in a lengthy battle activists on both sides predicted would end up before the U.S. Supreme Court. Texas leaders urged the panel to quickly hear their appeal of a judgeâ€™s ruling Monday striking down a requirement that doctors performing abortions must have admitting privileges at a hospital within 30 miles of their clinic. He agreed with abortionrights activists that the restriction, which was to be enforced starting Tuesday, placed an unconstitutional burden on women seeking an abortion and didnâ€™t make the process safer, as state officials had argued.
Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott immediately appealed the ruling to the conservative 5th Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans. The first order of business for the court was to decide whether to grant an emergency motion to allow that and another part of the new law to take effect Tuesday as scheduled.
The provision, part of a large package of abortion limits the Legislature approved in July, would effectively force the closure of about a third of the stateâ€™s 32 abortion clinics â€” some the only facility within hundreds of miles where women can get an abortion. Abortion rights supporters argued most hospitals will not grant abortion doctors admitting privileges for religious, business or competitive reasons.
NEW YORK (AP) â€” For some, itâ€™s something to mark â€” a year of recovery and rebuilding since Superstorm Sandy walloped the region â€” homes that have been restored, pride in the resiliency of people and neighborhoods. But for others, thereâ€™s still a long road ahead and much work to be done. And for those who lost loved ones, the grief remains. Sandy came ashore on Oct. 29, 2012, sending floodwaters pouring across the densely populated barrier islands of Long Island and the Jersey shore. In New York City, the storm surge hit nearly 14 feet, swamping the cityâ€™s subway and commuter rail tunnels and knocking out power to the southern third of Manhattan. The storm was blamed for at least 182 deaths in the U.S. â€” including 68 in New York and 71 in
New Jersey â€” and property damage estimated at $65 billion. At Meadeâ€™s bar in the South Street Seaport, a â€œlights outâ€? Sandy party was planned for Tuesday night to observe the historic neighborhoodâ€™s recovery. â€œThe neighbohoodâ€™s been here hundreds of years,â€? said owner Lee Holin. â€œItâ€™s not going anywhere.â€? Still, Holinâ€™s mood was not festive. â€œI donâ€™t just want to be the bar that survived Sandy,â€? he said as street artist friend who goes by the nickname â€œNDAâ€? painted a mural in a stairwell above an eyelevel water mark on the wall left by flooding. Meadeâ€™s bar gained a loyal following by being one of the first businesses to open after the storm. But storefronts that went dark for months are starting to get new retail tenants willing to pay higher

â€œTheyâ€™re trying to turn this into the Meatpacking District,â€? he complained, referring to the expensive, uber trendy neighborhood on Manhattanâ€™s west side. Mandelbaum Ken remembered looking out of his Brooklyn apartment window at the lower part of Manhattan and not being able to see a single thing, Sandyâ€™s surging waters causing massive power outages.
â€œIt was completely dark, it was unreal,â€? he said Tuesday, joining a couple of dozen others at Brooklyn Bridge Park, where they held electric candles to mark the anniversary of Sandyâ€™s landfall, a commemoration that was also being done in other parts of coastal New York City and along the New Jersey shore.

Now you see it...Now you don’t. The Stars Show the Kind of Day You’ll Have: 5-Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult
ARIES (March 21-April 19) Note the backand-forth tug between risktaking and following the status quo. You might waver less than other signs do, but you will remain sensitive to the different undercurrents. Through understanding your nature, you will take a risk. Tonight: Try to relax. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) A brainstorming session could trigger even more of your high energy. You might decide to pursue an unusual course. Recognize your boundaries, but also note the ease with which you can break down one of these barriers, if you so choose. Tonight: Take a midweek break. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) You might want to hang close to home. Consider making your office more comfortable or try working from home. You see life differently from how many people see it. Be willing to try a new approach that might achieve the same goal. Tonight: Stay centered. CANCER (June 21-July 22) You naturally stumble upon the right words. Keep the lines of communication open. When you decide which way to go, share your ideas with a trusted associate who is able to visualize different issues and scenarios. Tonight: Express your creativity around a special friend! LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)
JACQUELINE BIGAR YOUR HOROSCOPE
Be aware of your spending in a situation that has implications. Listen to your instincts; they will guide you. Your sixth sense points to an opportunity. Even if you make an error, you somehow will turn it around. Tonight: No one knows how to have a good time like you do! VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Take advantage of all your supporters, especially if you want to start a new project. You can do it! Remember that. Be willing to let a younger person know more about the specifics. He or she will give you strong feedback. Tonight: Act like the world is your oyster. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) The less said, the better. A boss or someone you look up to has a very different image for you, which he or she would like you to fulfill. You might not be able to satisfy this request. At the present moment, maintain a lowkey image. Tonight: Get some much-needed rest. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) Your sense of direction points you to getting feedback and support from others. News from someone at a distance puts a smile on your face. A visit or a trip to or from a dear friend seems impending. Make a call to this person

soon. Tonight: Go for exactly what you want. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22Dec. 21) Tension builds because others have expectations that you do not want to meet. You could feel stuck. You must weigh the pros and cons of a decision. A partner or family member might guide you in the direction of accepting a new responsibility. Tonight: Go till the wee hours. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19) If you experience some discomfort with several situations, detach. You must have a favorite way of distancing yourself from trigger issues. Use it. Reframe the issue at least several times. Recognize that your perspective is not the only one. Tonight: Put on some great music. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18) Relate to key people directly. You could be delighted by someone’s openness. You might be able to relate far more easily without “in-between” people. Use caution when making a money decision, especially if there is high risk involved. Tonight: Out to dinner with a loved one. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) Others seem to be unable to contain themselves around you. They keep testing your boundaries. Sometimes these people can be very charming, yet at other times, they can be testy and difficult. Tonight: Make sure that you are ready for tomorrow.

Taiwan pop star alleges fecal matter thrown at car
TAIPEI, Taiwan (AP) — Taiwanese pop star Jam Hsiao said he’s outraged by an alleged attack in which two autograph-seekers threw a bucket of fecal matter at his van. The 26-year -old singer told reporters Tuesday that two motorcyclists approached his van asking for autographs before the attack. He said his driver was hit and suffered bruises while pursuing the motorcyclists, but Hsai himself was unharmed. Hsia said he was outraged by Monday’s incident and
called on the authorities to find the culprits, saying “I demand an answer.” He said the attackers asked if it was his car, so he believes they were looking for him, but he said he had no known enemies and did not know who would want to harm him. “I hope whoever hired these two men gets the harshest punishment,” Hsiao said. “I hope whoever was paid to do this... I want them to know, they will regret it.” Known for his explosive high notes, Hsia rose to

Berrendo wins 7th straight city title Wednesday, October 30, 2013 Phone: 575-622-7710, ext. 304
GEOFF GUNN SPECIAL TO THE DAILY RECORD
In the football face-off for the City of Roswell Middle School Championship title, the top-seeded Berrendo Bulldogs survived an early Cinderella assault by the Mesa Panthers en route to a 44-8 win. It was the Bulldogs’ seventh straight city title, but this one didn’t come without a fight, at least early on. It was the Panthers who struck first. Brandon Perez blocked a Bulldog punt and teammate Mauricio Mendosa scooped up the loose ball and retur ned it 59 yards to Berrendo 1-yard

line. Mark Molinar scored the very next play on a quarterback sneak. Molinar also kicked the PAT, worth two in middle-school football, and the Panthers found themselves up, 8-0, with 20 seconds left in the first quarter. On the ensuing kickoff, Hunter Johnson had a 44yard return for the Bulldogs down to the Panther 26-yard line, but they couldn’t capitalize and tur ned the ball over on downs after just four plays. The Mesa offense then went to work, grinding out three first downs on nine See TITLE, Page B6

LAWRENCE FOSTER RECORD ASST. SPORTS EDITOR
HAGERMAN — When you are playing an archrival or getting ready for a championship game, finding motivation and energy isn’t an issue. Getting up for a game where you are supposed to dominate, on the other hand, can be a challenge. It can be difficult to come out with your A-game when you are expected to win handily. That wasn’t an issue for
the Hagerman girls volleyball team on Tuesday against Capitan. The Bobcats were heavy favorites against the Vixens, but you wouldn’t have guessed it by the passion they played with as Hagerman had no lapse in effort or energy in a 3-0 beatdown of the visiting Vixens. “I am really proud, because we just started to get back into this rotation again a (match) ago,” BobSee BOBCATS, Page B2

Heat get rings, win over Bulls
MIAMI (AP) — They got their rings before the game, then a challenge as it was winding down. The Miami Heat responded to both. Shane Battier went 4 for 4 from 3-point range, including a critical one from the right corner with 1:33 remaining, and the Heat wasted most of what was a 25-point lead before holding off Derrick Rose and the Chicago Bulls 107-95 on Tuesday night in the seasonopener for both teams. “You never know what to expect when you’re trying to keep the main thing the main thing, and that’s the game,” Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said.

Roswell volleyball coach Heather Baca has talked to her team all season about the importance of finishing strong. It’s an aspect of the game that Roswell has struggled with throughout the year. When the Coyotes forced a fifth set with Artesia in a crucial late-season District 4-4A match on Tuesday, finishing became even more important. And Baca’s message finally sunk in. Georgia L ynn Eldridge served the Coyotes (9-10, 12 district) to the brink of a victory and Roswell finally finished, claiming a 3-2 win over the top-ranked Bulldogs at the Coyote Den. “It’s a huge morale booster. We needed that for confidence more than anything,” Baca said afterward. “We’ve been preaching to the kids all year, ‘You can do it, you’ve got what it takes. If we’ll just put it together, you can beat a good team.’ To finally do it, is huge for confidence.” A 10-point run behind Eldridge’s serving is what fueled the Coyotes’ first dis-
“But you can’t deny the emotions and what a special moment it was for everybody in the organization because we know how difficult that was and how harrowing that was last season. So it was great to actually get the win after that to cap off a very good night for the Miami Heat.” LeBron James had 17 points, eight assists and six rebounds for Miami, which got its 2013 NBA championship rings and raised the franchise’s third banner in a pregame ceremony. The Heat trailed 9-2 early, then outscored Chicago 52-24 over the remainder of the first half. Rose finished with 12 points in 34 minutes in his first game

since a serious knee injury in April 2012. Carlos Boozer had 31 points and seven rebounds for Chicago, which got within eight points in the final minutes. But Battier’s right-corner 3 — a staple for the Heat — snuffed out the comeback, and Miami wasn’t in trouble again. “We’re not trying to pull close. There were a lot of corrections that we have to make,” Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau said. “It always comes back to the same thing — our defense and our rebounding. And if we could have taken better care of the ball early on, we would have

Home at last: Red Sox hope to win title at Fenway
BOSTON (AP) — Generations of New Englanders are preparing. Practically no one alive can remember seeing such an event unfold: The Boston Red Sox could win a World Series title on the celebrated green grass at Fenway Park. Ted Williams never did it. Not Carl Yastrzemski. Not Carlton Fisk. Not even Pedro Martinez and Curt Schilling, who ended The Curse nearly a decade ago but did it on the road. When the Red Sox last won a World Series at home, Babe Ruth, Carl Mays and Harry Hooper were the stars in September 1918, a season cut short by World War I. Ahead of the St. Louis Cardinals 3-2, the Red Sox have two chances to reward their faithful. “It would be awesome,” said John Lackey, who starts Game 6 on Wednesday night against Cardinals rookie Michael Wacha. Fenway was just a kid the last time the Red Sox won a title at

Chiefs, Seahawks share 1st place in AP poll
The Kansas City Chiefs are on top of the Associated Press power poll. They had to share first place in the AP Pro32 rankings with the Seattle Seahawks, though, despite being the NFL’s last undefeated team. The Chiefs and Seahawks each had 369 points from the 12-member panel, with the Chiefs getting six first-place votes and the Seahawks four. The Denver Broncos took the other two and came in a close third with 360 points. The Seahawks, who topped the Chiefs 378-367 in the previous poll, struggled through their game at St. Louis on Monday and pulled out a 14-9 victory to improve to 71. “It was an ugly road win against Rams, but a win is a win. Can’t wait for Percy Harvin to show up,” wrote Fox editorial consultant John Czarnecki, referring to the recovering wide receiver who is due back soon from a hip injury. The Chiefs weren’t all that much more impressive at home, beating the Cleveland Browns 23-17, but the same logic applies to them. “When you are the only undefeated team, it doesn’t matter how it looks,” said ESPN analyst Herm Edwards. The only other team with one loss or fewer, the New Orleans Saints, finished fourth. “Big props to new coordinator Rob Ryan for solving chronic defensive woes,” wrote Ira Kaufman of the Tampa Tribune. Some skepticism of the Saints lingers, though. They play at the New York Jets on Sunday. “New Orleans can score 30-plus points at home against any team,” said Pat Kirwan, an analyst for Sirius XM satellite radio and CBSSports.com “Let’s see how they do on the road this week when the Ryan brothers face off in New York. The Saints average 23 points a game away from New Orleans.” The Indianapolis Colts and San Francisco 49ers were tied for the fifth spot. Rounding out the top 10: the Green Bay Packers, Cincinnati Bengals, New England Patriots and Detroit Lions. The Lions captured some attention, moving up from 12th, with their 31-30 comeback victory over the Dallas Cowboys. “The Lions have the best passing attack in the NFC, the best this side of the Rockies, in fact. Now Matthew Stafford gets to rest his arm on a bye week,” wrote Rick Gosselin of the Dallas Morning News. There were plenty of major movers. The New York Giants climbed from 29th to 22nd, the Oakland Raiders rose from 28th to 18th, the Arizona Cardinals soared from 24th to
cat coach Monica Morales said regarding her team’s energy level from the start. “I think for as long as we have been out of it, we are playing as a team again. It looks like we are starting to play with fire again.” The Bobcats (15-3, 5-0 District 7-1A) were on fire the entire match. Hager man’s Anika Lujan got her team off to a quick start as the Bobcats won the first seven points of the first set. On its next service game, Hagerman rattled off three straight points behind the serving of Jamie Warf. Hager man had two 5-0 runs and closed out a dominating first set with three wins with Lujan on serve. Morales said that stringing together
16th, and the Carolina Panthers jumped from 16th to 12th. Even the winless Jacksonville Jaguars got a little love, sort of. They got two votes for 31st, instead of the usual unanimous last place finish. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the other team yet to record a victory, are one spot ahead of them. Said Newsday’s Bob Glauber of the Buccaneers: “They have a look of a team tired of its coach and each other.”
Bum Phillips remembered in Houston
HOUSTON (AP) — Earl Campbell thought of Bum Phillips as a second father and summed up the sentiments of many on Tuesday as he remembered his former coach. “There will never be another Bum Phillips,” Campbell said. Phillips, the folksy Texas football coach who led the Houston Oilers during their Luv Ya Blue heyday, died on Oct. 18 at age 90 at his ranch in Goliad, Texas. He was buried in a private ceremony in Goliad on Oct. 23. Tuesday was a public memorial service attended by dozens of his former players including Campbell, who starred for his Oilers teams. “When I had a chance to visit with him before he passed away, I told him: ‘Bum I want you to know this man, you sure made a difference in my life,”’ Campbell said. “And of course he always says: ‘Oh EC, you’re the one.’ So I’m going to miss him.” Phillips’ son Wade Phillips, the defensive coordinator for the Houston Texans, says the remembrance will help heal the family’s grief. “He treated people the way you’d like to be treated and he made you feel special,” Wade Phillips said. Campbell wasn’t the only player who thought of Phillips as a father figure. “He was like a father to all of us,” former Oilers quarterback Dan Pastorini said. “He was a coach that taught us about a lot of things, a lot of things relating to football, but more things pertaining to life and making us better men and for that I’m grateful.” Born Oail Andrew Phillips Jr. in 1923 in Orange, Phillips was a Texas original in his blue jeans, boots and trademark white Stetson — except at the Astrodome or any other dome stadium because he was taught it was disrespectful to wear a hat indoors. “Mama always said that if it can’t rain on you, you’re indoors,” Phillips said. Phillips loved the Oilers and when coaching the team in the 1970s, he famously said of the Cowboys: “They may be ‘America’s Team,’ but we’re Texas’ team.” He took over as coach of the Oilers in 1975 and led Houston to two AFC championship games before he was fired in 1980. He was responsible for drafting Heisman Trophy winner Campbell, the player who was largely credited with the success of the franchise. “I just played with a group of guys that made me look good,” Campbell said. “And I was coached by a guy that made me look good and we just fit each other. He was an unbelievable guy and a terrific person.” Hundreds filled Houston mega church Lakewood on Tuesday night to celebrate his life and share stories about the one-of-a-kind character. The pulpit was decorated with a towering oil derrick made of red and white carnations adorned with sparkly light blue letters that spelled out: ‘Luv Ya Bum!” Next to it was a much smaller flower arrangement in the shape of the Texans mascot. Phillips spent a lot of time in his last years around the Texans after Wade Phillips was hired as an assistant coach. Texans owner Bob McNair, general manager Rick Smith, coach Gary Kubiak, defensive end J.J. Watt and several other Texans players attended the service. “He was always very encouraging, very positive and always a great supporter of the Texans,” McNair said. “He just never had a bad thing to say, and it was just nice to have that level of support from someone who had been so successful for so many years in the NFL. I always appreciated that because he didn’t have to do it.” The Oilers lost to Pittsburgh 34-5 in the AFC championship game in Campbell’s rookie year. Houston returned to the game
those types of runs has been a point of emphasis for her team. “We talked a lot about (stringing together points on serve), because early on we had kids serving 11 to 15 times, but scoring three points,” she said. “Last game, we had two kids serve 15 and we were scoring 11 points. I told them that is really important.” The onslaught continued in the second set as the Bobcats built an 8-2 lead behind Taylor Hamill (three points) and Lujan (four points). Capitan cut the deficit to four after a kill, but two more large runs (3-0, 7-0) helped Hagerman close out the 25-12 win. The Bobcats finished off the victory with a 25-17 win in the third set. Jessica Rodriguez had 12 kills, Hamill had 11 kills, Lori Gossett had seven kills and a block and Shayanna Eubanks had 16 assists for Hagerman.
the following season only to be beaten again by the Steelers, this time 27-13. The Oilers went 11-5 in 1980 but lost to Oakland in the AFC wild-card round and Phillips was fired. He was 55-35 with the team in the regular season.

been in position to win down the stretch.” Chris Bosh scored 16 points, Battier finished with 14 and Dwyane Wade and Mario Chalmers each had 13 for Miami, which had seven players score in double figures. Ray Allen and Norris Cole each scored 11 for Miami. Rose shot 4 for 15 for the Bulls. “I think we had a lot to do with it,” Allen said. By halftime, Miami was rolling, up 5433 — putting the game on pace for a 10866 final, which would have exactly matched the score of the game in 2006 when Chicago came into Miami and spoiled the Heat franchise’s first ring night. Not this time, though the Bulls made it plenty interesting down the stretch. A layup by Butler with 5:34 left got the Bulls within 15, and after he missed the ensuing free throw, the rebound made its way to Kirk Hinrich — who made a 3pointer that cut Miami’s lead to 91-79. Hinrich fouled out on the ensuing Miami possession. Wade scored seconds later, the Heat followed that with a stop, and James simply overpowered Luol Deng in the post on the next trip to restore the 16-point lead. But again, the Bulls weren’t done, cutting the lead to 95-87 on a drive by Boozer with 2:47 left. They would get no closer,
SPORTS and James raved about Miami’s balance. “It’s a team game,” James said. “That’s what this team is put together for.” Rose’s start was promising early, with two drives for impressive scores. The Bulls led 15-10 when Rose checked out for the first time with 3:36 left in the opening quarter. When he returned, the lead was gone for good. The Heat outscored the Bulls 13-3 in Rose’s first stint on the bench, turning a five-point lead into a five-point deficit, and by then the Heat were off and running. Over a 4-minute stretch of the second quarter, everything changed. Rose’s surgically repaired knee might be fine, but in the basketball vernacular, Cole broke the ankles of the 2011 NBA MVP — starting a run that turned what was a tight game into a romp. Cole faked out Rose on the dribble, causing the Bulls’ star to tumble over, and the Heat reserve connected on an 18-foot jumper that sent the Miami bench leaping from its seats. “There was a lot of emotions going on,” Cole said. That began the 17-0 run. The Bulls missed nine straight shots, Rose getting blocked by Bosh on one, and the Heat went to work. Miami shot 7 for 10 during the burst, which was capped by a driving layup by James with 4:23 left, and suddenly the Heat led 41-20. It was a runaway, and became a grindit-out win.
Pacers pull away from Magic
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Indiana fans gave Victor Oladipo a warm welcome to the NBA on Tuesday night. Then the Pacers gave Oladipo and his Orlando teammates the cold shoulder. Paul George’s buzzer beating 3-pointer at the end of the third quarter spurred a 21-4 run, finally sending Indiana past the Magic 9787 in a tougher -thanexpected opening night matchup. “We’ve got to win the battles, win the tough games and we’ve got to win the games that we should win,” George said. “We have to take care of business early and not rely on the end of the season to start playing well and start getting a streak going. We have to start a streak early.” They got off to a good start Tuesday — even though it was a little ragged for a team that might have the best chance of unseating two-time defending NBA champion Miami. Indiana committed 20

turnovers and gave up 13 offensive rebounds against the worst team in the league last season. Roy Hibbert, who was two rebounds short of his career-high (17) in the first half, grabbed only one in the second half and left midway through the fourth quarter after an awkward tumble underneath his own basket that left him grasping at his knee. A few moments later, the 7-foot-2 former All-Star limped to the bench and coach Frank Vogel said Hibbert is expected to play Wednesday night at New Orleans. Despite the struggles, the Pacers still managed to get things done. George finished with 24 points, six rebounds and five assists. Lance Stephenson had 19 points, seven rebounds and five assists. Hibbert scored just eight points but had 16 rebounds and seven blocks and the rebuilt bench played a huge role, scoring all but four points during the decisive run.
It left Vogel optimistic about the season. “Our bench, in the last three preseason games and tonight, really just blew the game open,” he said. “I think they’re going to be really strong, I think it was just a matter of nerves tonight.” The Pacers were aware they were facing split allegiances in Oladipo’s adopted home state. More than 90 minutes before tipoff, one section near the court was almost completely full of fans decked out in Indiana University colors or fans wearing new Magic jerseys, far more than the 18 to 20 people Oladipo said he gave tickets to. When the former Indiana star wasn’t announced as a starter, the fans saved a rousing standing ovation for Oladipo’s grand entrance — midway through the first quarter. But by the third quarter most of those cheers were drowned out by See PACERS, Page B6
