NM Legislature underwent face lift
Vol. 121, No. 272 75¢ Daily / $1.25 Sunday
SANTA FE (AP) — Nearly a third of the 112 members of Legislature will be new to the House and Senate when lawmakers convene in January, and that could end up helping Republican Gov. Susana Martinez and her push to end driver’s licenses for illegal immigrants. There will be at least 15 new senators and 20 or 21 new House members — depending on a recount in one race— when lawmakers meet for next year’s 60day session. In the Senate, the election appears to have added more supporters of the license proposal that has been a centerpiece of the governor’s legislative agenda. Democratic leaders and the governor say they can put aside their election year dif ferences, but others aren’t so certain. Some of the harshest campaign
November 13, 2012
attacks against Democrats came from a political committee run by the governor’s political adviser. “The legislative races were hard fought and nasty, and as a result of that there are inevitably some hard feelings on both sides,” said Albuquerque pollster Brian Sanderoff. “That’s one thing right off the top that both the Legislature and executive branch are going to have to deal with ... as to whether they want to come together to get some things done or whether we’re just going to continue to see the polarization between the two branches of government.” Senate Majority Leader Michael Sanchez, a Belen Democrat, said, “What I have always believed is that you do what’s best for the people of New Mexico regardless of other people and the way they try to af fect outcomes of elec-
tions. We’re going to try to move forward.” Martinez spokesman Scott Darnell said the governor “will work diligently with legislators on both sides of the aisle to seize this opportunity to find common ground” on issues. One of the looming legislative battles next year is over the governor’s proposal to stop driver’s licenses for illegal immigrants. Her measure has passed the House but stalled in the Senate in the past. Martinez hoped voters would elect more Republicans to improve chances for her initiatives. Although the GOP lost seats in the House, the gover nor likely will find enough support for her license proposal in the legislative chamber that earlier this year approved it 4525 with the backing of 11 Democrats. At least two newly elected
Democrats might be allied with the governor on the license issue. Emily Kane, of Albuquerque, and Stephanie Garcia Richard, of White Rock, told the Albuquerque Jour nal in candidate questionnaires that they favor repealing the law allowing driver’s licenses for illegal immigrants. The Senate rejected the governor’s measure in 2011 on a 24-17 vote. Only two Democrats joined Republicans in voting to scrap the current license policy. One Democratic senator didn’t vote but likely would have opposed the governor’s proposal. In contrast to last year, Martinez could gain four votes in the Senate because of newly elected members. If there were a 21-21 tie vote in the Senate, Republican Lt. Gov. John Sanchez could cast the deciding vote.

Learning the true price of freedom ILISSA GILMORE RECORD STAFF WRITER
Valley View Elementary honored veterans of the past and present Monday with a celebration at the school that featured artwork commemorating U.S. wars and a skit about the price of freedom. The school decided to create the event after a suggestion from a student’s grandparent, said Margaret Bohlin, gifted teacher for the school. The man, who also is a veteran, helped Bohlin, Principal Mona Kirk and teacher Irma Nevarez organize the short program, which coincided with the school’s annual Reading Night. Students displayed posters they’d created to represent different branches of the Armed Forces. Others commemorated U.S. wars from World War I to

Roswell Republican Cliff Pirtle and Lee Cotter, of Las Cruces, each defeated Democratic Senate leaders who opposed the governor’s license proposal.
Democrat Joseph Cervantes voted to scrap the license system this year as a member of the House. Grants Democrat Clemente Sanchez said in the Journal’s candidate survey that he favored repealing the license law. Both of the newly elected senators will replace Democrats who opposed the governor on the issue.
Even with potentially more supporters, Martinez still must navigate the legislative maze. Bills can be bottled up in committees and never reach the full House or Senate for a vote. Lawmakers also can change their positions on an issue.
Emails shock Petraeus
TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — CIA Director David Petraeus was shocked to learn last summer that his mistress was suspected of sending threatening emails warning another woman to stay away from him, former staff members and friends told The Associated Press Monday. Petraeus told these associates his relationship with the second woman, Tampa socialite Jill Kelley, was platonic, though his biographer -turned-lover Paula Broadwell apparently saw her as a romantic rival. Retired Gen. Petraeus also denied to these associates that he had given Broadwell any of the sensitive military information alleged to have been found on her

Latin American leaders call for review of US pot vote
Mexico's President Felipe Calderon speaks during a press conference with the leaders of Honduras, Costa Rica and Belize, not in picture, in Mexico City, Monday.
MEXICO CITY (AP) — A group of Latin American leaders declared Monday that votes by two U.S.
states to legalize marijuana have important implications for efforts to quash drug smuggling, offering
the first government reaction from a region increasingly frustrated with the U.S.-backed war on drugs. The declaration by the leaders of Mexico, Belize, Honduras and Costa Rica did not explicitly say they were considering weakening their gover nments’ efforts against marijuana smuggling, but it strongly implied the votes last week in Colorado and Washington would make enforcement of marijuana bans more difficult. The four called for the Organization of American States to study the impact of the Colorado and Washington votes and said the United Nations’ General Assembly should hold a special session on the prohibition of drugs by 2015 at the latest. Last week, the most influential adviser to Mexico’s president-elect, who

takes office Dec. 1, questioned how the country will enforce a ban on growing and smuggling a drug that is now legal under some U.S. state laws. “It has become necessary to analyze in depth the implications for public policy and health in our nations emerging from the state and local moves to allow the legal production, consumption and distribution of marijuana in some countries of our continent,” Mexican President Felipe Calderon said after a meeting with Honduran President Porfirio Lobo, Costa Rican President Laura Chinchilla and Prime Minister Dean Barrow of Belize. Mexico has seen tens of thousands of people killed over the last six years during a militarized government campaign against the country’s drug cartels. President-elect Enrique
5 dead in Ohio garage; carbon monoxide suspected
TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) — The bodies of three children and two adults were found inside a garage Monday, and authorities said they believe the deaths — apparently from carbon monoxide poisoning — weren’t accidental. Toledo police spokesman Joe Heffernan said firefighters broke into the garage of the Toledo home and discovered the bodies Monday afternoon. Heffernan said officers were called to check on those inside the house after getting a call from a concerned family member. Investigators think all five might have died from carbon monoxide poisoning. Police released no further details. The victims are a 56-yearold woman, her grandchildren, ages 10, 7 and 5, and a 32-year-old man, who is an uncle of one of the children, Lucas County coroner, Dr. James Patrick, told The (Toledo) Blade.

“Obviously we can’t handle a product that is illegal in Mexico, trying to stop its transfer to the United States, when in the United States, at least in part of the United States, it now has a dif ferent status,” Videgaray said.

Peña Nieto has promised to shift Mexico’s focus to preventing violence against ordinary citizens, although he says he intends to keep battling cartels and is opposed to drug legalization.

“WHAT IS THE MLS” By Connie Denio of Roswell 622-7191 or 626-7948
If you’re buying or selling a home you probably have heard the term Multiple Listing Service, or MLS, but maybe you’re not quite sure what it means. Multiple Listing Service is a cooperative listing organization formed by local real estate companies to share the listings they receive from sellers. Listing brokers enter information into the MLS computer - information which is then
immediately available to every real estate office on the MLS system. This way, a buyer can work with only one broker who has access to all properties listed and who can identify homes which can fit the buyer’s needs and price range. When a property is sold, the listing broker and the selling broker share the commission. Call Me Today! ©

computer, saying anything she had must have been provided by other commanders during reporting trips to Afghanistan. The associates spoke on condition of anonymity because they weren’t authorized to publicly discuss the matters, which could be part of an FBI investigation. Petraeus, who led U.S. military efforts in Iraq and Afghanistan, resigned his CIA post Friday, acknowledging his extramarital affair with Broadwell and expressing deep regret. New details of the investigation that brought an end to his storied career emerged as President Barack Obama hunted for a new CIA director and members of Congress questioned why the months-long probe was kept quiet for so long. Kelley, the Tampa woman, began receiving harassing emails in May, according to two federal law enforcement officials. They, too, spoke only on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publicly about the matter. The emails led Kelley to report the matter, eventually triggering the investigation that led Petraeus to resign as head of the intelligence agency. FBI agents traced the alleged cyber harassment to Broadwell, the officials said, and discovered she was exchanging intimate messages with a private gmail account. Further investigation revealed the account belonged to Petraeus under an alias. Petraeus and Broadwell apparently used a trick, known to terrorists and teenagers alike, to conceal their email traffic, one of the law enforcement officials said. Rather than transmitting emails to the other’s inbox, they composed at least some messages and instead of transmitting them, left them in a draft folder or in an electronic “dropbox,” the official said. Then the other person could log onto the same account and read the draft emails
there. This avoids creating an email trail that is easier to trace. Broadwell had co-authored a biography titled “All In: The Education of General David Petraeus,” published in January. In the preface, she said she met Petraeus in the spring of 2006 while she was a graduate student at the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard and she ended up following him on multiple trips to Afghanistan as part of her research. But the contents of the email exchanges between Petraeus and Broadwell suggested to FBI agents that their relationship was intimate. The FBI concluded relatively quickly — by late summer at the latest — that no security breach had occurred, the two senior law enforcement officials said. But the FBI continued its investigation into whether Petraeus had any role in the harassing emails. Petraeus, 60, told one former associate he began an affair with Broadwell, 40, a couple of months after he became the director of the CIA late last year. They mutually agreed to end the affair four months ago, but they kept in contact because she was still writing a dissertation on his time commanding U.S. troops overseas, the associate said. FBI agents contacted Petraeus, and he was told that sensitive, possibly classified documents related to Afghanistan were found on her computer. He assured investigators they did not come from him, and he mused to his associates that they were probably given to her on her reporting trips to Afghanistan by commanders she visited in the field there. The FBI concluded there was no security breach. One associate also said Petraeus believes the documents described past operations and had already been declassified, although they might have still been marked as “secret.” Broadwell had high security clearances on her own as part of her job as a reserve Army major working for military intelligence. But those clearances are only in effect when a soldier is on active duty, which she was not at the time she researched the Petraeus biography.

Afghanistan. Fifth-grader Anyssa Torrez held the poster for the National Guard and was one of the students to recite the Pledge of Allegiance for the assembly. “Veterans are heroic because they put their lives in danger for our freedoms,” said Torrez, 10, whose father is a veteran. Nevarez’s third grade class also performed a skit. In it, two students are working on a project where they ask elders in the community, “What does freedom mean to you?” One character talked about the importance of veterans. “Our country has to be ready to defend its freedoms at a moment’s notice,” she said. “Freedom is a gift, not a privilege.” Norman Melvin of the Roswell Honor Guard said he enjoyed seeing the children act as people his age. “Old age is not a concept they can relate to,” said Melvin, 82. “We’re like another species.” Melvin, whose long, white beard frames his face and splits down the middle of his chin, is a veteran of the U.S. Air Force and has served in the Honor Guard for 19 years. He said the program was “very good for the kids.” Students also wrote thank you notes to veterans and distributed them to veterans in attendance. Sgt. Michael Garcia of the U.S. Army received several and smiled at each one. “Thank you for going to wars to save our country,” one said. “I am thankful for you saving our country. Thanks for all you do.” Garcia, whose wife, Sonya, teaches third grade at the school, returned last December from a peacekeeping mission in Kosovo.

has already spilled into Lebanon, Jordan and Turkey. “We are closely monitoring what is happening and will respond appropriately. We will not allow our borders to be violated or our citizens to be fired upon,” Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Monday in a speech to foreign ambassadors. While officials believe President Bashar Assad has no interest in picking a fight with Israel, they fear the embattled Syrian leader may try to draw Israel into the fighting in a bout of desperation. Israeli officials believe it is only a matter of time before Syrian rebels topple the longtime leader. The conflict has already spilled over into several of Syria’s other neighbors — whether in direct violence or in the flood of refugees fleeing the bloodshed. More than 36,000 Syrians have been killed in the fighting, according to estimates by anti-Assad activists. On Monday, a Syrian fighter jet bombed a rebel-held area hugging the border with Turkey three times, killing 15 to 20 people, according to a Turkish official. Separately, eight wounded Syrians died in Turkey, the official said, speaking on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to brief the media. Potential Israeli involvement in Syria could be far more explosive. The bitter enemies both possess air forces, tanks and significant arsenals of missiles and other weapons. Although the Israeli military is more modern and powerful, Syria has a collection of chemical weapons that could wreak havoc if deployed. Fighting between the countries

items, hard candy, and other treats to send them to children around the globe. According to Teresa Mckee at Grace Community Church, this year the program anticipates sending off its 100 millionth box. The gift boxes are sent to about 130 countries, many of which have been torn apart by war. Mckee said they are delivered by plane, train, and even donkey if necessary, all with the intent of letting children know they are loved. “The purpose of Operation Christmas Child is to put gift-filled shoe boxes together for children who are lost and hurting in different parts of the world,” she said. “The goal is to show them the love of God, and share with them the love of God.” Shoe boxes contain toys, treats and useful everyday items, but she said that’s not the most important thing that goes with the box. “The most important ingredient that goes into these boxes is the prayer,” she said. “At Grace Community Church, for example, this Sunday, we will dedicate and pray over these boxes. But each family who packs them also prays over them. That, I believe, is the most

He said the school has always shown appreciation to members of the military, from classes sending along letters and care packages to the high fives he gets from students when he visits. “Anything that they do, it shows that we’re appreciated,” said Garcia, who wore his combat uniform and boots. “To know that the kids are looking up to us is a great thing.” Garcia said he would keep the notes in his toolbox at work.
could also drag in Syria’s close ally, the Lebanese guerrilla group Hezbollah, or Islamic militant groups in the Gaza Strip on Israel’s southern flank. Israeli political scientist Dore Gold, an informal adviser to Netanyahu, said neither Israel nor Syria has any interest in escalating the fighting. “I see no indication of Assad wanting to draw Israel in. But if violence comes from the Syrian army, or even forces operating in Syria that are affiliated with al-Qaida, Israel has to do what is necessary to make sure there’s no spillover into Israeli territory,” he said. He described Israel’s reaction Monday as a “carefully calibrated response.” “On the one hand, it shows Israel’s determination to protect its civilians, and at the same time, it indicates it doesn’t want to get drawn in,” he said. Israel has warily watched the fighting in Syria for months, carefully trying to avoid any involvement. It has found itself in a difficult position as the fighting rages near the frontier with the Golan Heights, a strategic plateau it captured from Syria in 1967 and later annexed. A number of mortar shells have landed in the Golan in the past week. Early this month, Syrian tanks accidentally crossed into a buffer zone along the frontier for the first time in nearly 40 years. Israel responded for the first time Sunday, firing what it called a “warning shot” into Syria after a mortar shell landed near an Israeli military post. Israel also warned of a tougher response if the attacks persisted. In Monday’s incident, the military said it reported “direct hits” on a mobile artillery launcher after another shell struck the Golan. It would not say whether the launcher belonged to the Syrian army, saying only it had targeted the “source of fire.”

to welcome young Isaiah into their home, but Isaiah is growing up fast. He will be 3 in December. Maria and Joseph Peña also joined in the fun, having adopted four-yearold Jacob earlier this year The Montoyas have adopted a total of nine children. Their family numbers 14 children whose ages range from in their 40s to the youngest, Isaiah, 2. They also are grandparents, and their youngest grandchild is about the same age as their newest addition. Many found their way into the Montoya household early in life. Katherine Montoya came in to their care at the age of 3 months. She is now 13. Each adoption represents happy endings in difficult cases. “The children come to CYFD because of neglect and abuse. We work intensively with the family, but if the family cannot work the program, then the children go up for adoption,” said Brown. Judge Ralph D. Shamas presides over adoptions. “It is the happiest thing I do in District Court,” said Shamas as he joined the celebration. Judge Charles Currier works with the families to assist in the process of reunification. “Reunification remains
important component and ingredient that goes into these boxes.” She added that the community has done an amazing job of showing it cares, exceeding expectations each year. In 2011, 4,449 boxes were collected—572 more than in 2010. All Saints Catholic School sent students Monday to drop off boxes. The school was able to collect 81 this year after collecting just three when they first started donating to the program three years ago. McKee said she is proud of how members of the community have been able to surpass goals each year despite the troubles they might be facing due to issues in the economy. “Each year we just seem to grow and people continue—in spite of an ailing economy— (to) open their hearts and their wallets to care for those in need,” she said. “I think that is something that is special to southeastern New Mexico. We see this time and time again, this is an incredibly giving, loving region and we see them pouring into Samaritan’s Purse each year. This week is National Collection week and members of the community can drop off donations at Grace Community Church at 935 W.

Reunification is another happy ending,” said Renee Fitts, foster and adoptive parent recruiter.
While CYFD can commemorate 17 adoptions in Chaves County in 2012; they still have another 26 children who are free for adoption. With 94 kids in foster care, the need for both adoptive parents and foster parents is great. “We need foster parents,” Brown said.
Fitts explained the licensing process for fostering and adoption, which is both extensive and intensive. The process lasts from 4-6 months. It includes a background check, along with home checks—not only to ensure the residence is prepared to handle another child, but also to observe the family dynamics. The families will go through training to handle the new children.
Potential foster and adoptive families have to meet certain requirements. “They must be over 18. They can be single or married. … They have to be a legal resident of New Mexico and the United States,” Fitts said. For more information, contact Renee Fitts at CYFD, at 624-6071.

Laws of unintended consequences in legislative races
Gridlock. That’s what we can expect in the next legislative session, where the bitter aftertaste of the worst campaigns money can buy will linger. Gover nors always have the choice to fight or negotiate with legislators, and we know which choice this governor made. We’ll hear a lot of indignant speechifying in the Senate, where the missing President Pro Tem Tim Jennings will cast a long shadow. In a wave of political sludge, Roswell and District 32 swapped Jennings, along with his clout and seniority, for a newbie who will get the worst committee assignments and have no pull whatever. It’s too bad voters didn’t see Jennings’ role as peacemaker. He was one of the few to listen to both sides and broker agreements, and without these people, the process suffers. Jennings did not hesitate to vote with Republi-

cans when the interests of his district called for it. The last giant slayer who went to Santa Fe was John Sanchez, who bested the longtime House Speaker Raymond Sanchez. During his short tenure, the rookie was doing well to find the men’s room. He now occupies a lonely post as lieutenant gover nor, ignored by the governor. So much for giant slaying. Raymond’s brother, Senate Majority Leader Michael Sanchez, will be back madder and badder than ever, especially without the moderating influence of Jennings. Sanchez bottles up bills he does
Roswell Daily Record
not like, including the measures of fellow Dems as well as the gover nor’s bills. During intense debates about how to balance the budget, Sanchez wanted to raid the state’s permanent funds — one of the worst ideas presented. In the House, the silver-haired Ken Martinez will no doubt glide into place as House speaker, the position once held by his silverhaired father, Walter Martinez. Old timers visiting the Roundhouse often do a double take because the two look so much alike. Ken Martinez, a Grants Democrat, is an eloquent speaker and a big-picture thinker. We’ll miss the gentlemanly Ben Lujan, but the Martinez era will also be memorable. When Martinez moves up, we can expect Gallup’s Patty Lundstrom, majority whip, to move up as well. She’s been mentored by party heavies for several years, and the Dems need to advance some women in party leadership.
Some losses: Ray Begaye is the most effective voice of the Navajo Nation. The Shiprock Democrat is articulate and knowledgeable, and as an educator he made meaningfu l co nt r ib ut ion s t o committee discussions. How could this smart man stumble ethically the way he did? We saw in his loss and that of the longserving Rep. Mary Jane Garcia, of Las Cruces, the voters’ insistence on ethical behavior. Then there’s Andy Nuñez of Hatch. After failing to unhorse Lujan as speaker, he thumbed his nose at Lujan and the Democrats, declared himself an Independent, and carried the governor’s driver’s license bill. No recrossing that torched bridge. For all that, the governor tossed him aside to support a Republican contender. Veteran political writers were stunned. And then, emerging from all that rancor and expense was the
Democrat Felipe Archuleta. Some of the more interesting newcomers: Sharon Clahchischilliage is the Legislature’s first Republican Navajo. Oh, to be a fly on the wall in caucus meetings! Emily Kane, an Albuquerque Democrat, will be a refreshing addition to a body with way too many lawyers. Kane is a fire station captain. We might expect this orgy of spending to produce noticeable change, but it didn’t. The Republicans gained a few Senate seats, and the Democrats gained a few House seats. Bottom line: Democrats still control both chambers. More importantly, the slim difference between Ds and Rs in House expanded, so nobody can play the swing-vote card. A final thought: If you’re one of the jaded who think your vote doesn’t count, think again. Some candidates won by a hair. © New Mexico News Services 2012
Women in the U.S. Senate
One of the biggest messages to come out of the 2012 election is this: Women won. The election left the country with not just binders full of women, but a U.S. Senate fuller of them. A full 20 percent of the 100 senators in January will be women, 16 Democrats and four Republicans. Women picked up five of the 33 seats that were contested this year. They lost two of their sisters, Republicans Olympia Snowe of Maine and Kay Bailey Hutchison of Texas. In the mid-1980s, the only woman in the Senate was Sen. Barbara Mikulski, D-Md. All six of the Democratic women who were seeking re-election to the Senate won their races. Democratic women also made gains in the U.S. House, where Republicans remain the majority party. Women and minorities will make a majority of the Democrats in the House, according to a tally from the office of Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif. By that count, among the 200 Democrats in the House next year will be 61 women, 43 African-Americans, 27 Hispanics and 10 Asian-Americans. Five will be openly gay, and one is bisexual. The Democratic caucus doesn’t precisely mirror America, but it’s a lot closer than it used to be. Women also won a significant symbolic battle in the patriarchal war waged by those who don’t want women making their own decisions about reproductive rights. As the women’s vote became more coveted during the election cycle, the Republican National Committee abandoned the Senate candidacy and appalling views of Missouri’s Todd Akin. The GOP tried to cozy up by moving closer to the center. Missouri women gave Claire McCaskill 58 percent of their votes, helping her to trounce Akin by nearly 16 points. President Barack Obama got 55 percent of the women’s vote nationwide. The gender gap is a significant problem for Republicans; women vote in greater numbers every year and have shown an increasing tendency to vote blue. In Indiana, women helped sink Republican Senate candidate Richard E. Mourdock, who saw his candidacy start to dive after he said that a pregnancy resulting from rape was “something that God intended.” The Senate long has been predominantly a men’s club. But in January it will have its first openly gay member, and a woman at that. Tammy Baldwin is also Wisconsin’s first female senator. The election also produced the Senate’s first Asian-American woman, Mazie Hirono, D-Hawaii. Hirono also is America’s first Japanese-born senator and perhaps the first Buddhist in the world’s greatest deliberative body. Donald Trump will be apoplectic. The other new women to the chamber are Democrats Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota and Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts and Republican Deb Fischer of Nebraska. New Hampshire made history by becoming the first state to have an all-female delegation when it elected two women to the House to join its two female senators. As if that wasn’t enough, the state also elected Democrat Maggie Hassan as governor. Jennifer Lawless, director of the Women & Politics Institute at American University, told The New York Times that women making up a fifth of the Senate is “an important symbolic number.” She said female politicians will now be less likely to be concerned about a male culture in Congress or worry about media bias against women. Lawless predicted that the results will prompt more women to seek office and to view themselves as qualified for the positions. In 1992, when three women were elected to join the two women who already were in the Senate, observers dubbed it the “Year of the Woman.” Mikulski didn’t like the label and said: “Calling 1992 the Year of the Woman makes it sound like the Year of the Caribou or the Year of the Asparagus. We’re not a fad, a fancy, or a year.” Two decades later, voters may be proving her right. Guest Editorial The St. Louis Post-Dispatch
November election hangover MARK SHIELDS CREATORS SYNDICATE
The next morning after an Election Day defeat, there is no place I know more empty than the headquarters of the losing candidate. Long gone are the bunting, balloons, the band, the open bar — and the hopes — of the night before. If the phone does ring, chances are it’s a creditor looking for her check. Campaign workers, now jobless and speaking softly, almost as though there’s been a death in the family, are busy updating, embellishing and printing their

resumes. In a hundred different places, members of the losing candidate’s party are doing their own individual postmortems of the defeat. And miraculously, those party folks invariably somehow all reach the same conclusion. The identical reaction is happening again in the wake of Republican challenger Mitt Romney’s loss to Democratic incumbent Barack Obama. Because a political party is a human institution, and because most of us humans will go to great lengths to avoid rejection, the first stage for explaining the defeat is to look

outside of ourselves and to blame the losing candidate. This time, it was, of course, Mitt Romney’s fault. He was, we are told, too stiff, unnatural, emotionally distant and uninspiring. Just like four years ago, it had been John McCain’s fault (that risky VP pick, remember?). And before that, John Kerry’s Nantucket windsurfing had distanced him from ordinary voters, while Al Gore had earlier been so relentlessly unexciting that his Secret Service code name had been “Al Gore.” After all the personality and character defects of the rejected standard-bearer have been

If the GOP could just find someone as good on radio as FDR, they would be back on top. And how did losing Democ-

Nov. 13, 1987 • One of the Goddard chapters of Future Far mers of America’s safety awareness programs was Halloween safety. The program consisted of FFA members dividing into groups and attending classes throughout the day at Berrendo, Chisum, East Grand Plains, El Capitan, Flora Vista, Military Heights, Missouri Avenue, Monterrey, Parkview, Pecos, Sunset and Washington elementary schools and Child Garden and Mary Moppets preschools in Roswell. Each group spoke to children about how to have a safe Halloween this year. The children were given a pamphlet to remind them and their parents about safety procedures.
Books offer guidance on dealing with loss of a loved one Roswell Daily Record
LORETTA CLARK ROSWELL PUBLIC LIBRARY
November is National Family Caregivers Month. Every day, family members, friends, neighbors and concerned individuals across America provide essential attention and assistance to their loved ones. Many individuals in need of care, including children, elders and persons with disabilities would have difficulty remaining safely in their homes and community without the support of their relatives and caregivers. The anxiety of care giving does not end with the death of a loved one. Caregivers are usually stressed, exhausted and may suffer from caregiver burnout by the time their loved one has passed away. Yet, they still must continue on with funeral arrangements, settle the estate and possibly deal with finding employment and another place of residence. Grief is the emotional suffering you feel when something or someone you love is taken away. You may associate grief with the death of a loved one, but any loss can cause grief. The Roswell Public Library offers books and other materials related to death, bereavement, healing and hope.
Grief is a natural response to loss. Debra Thomas, Technical Services supervisor, explores two books for the distraught. The loss of a loved one is especially difficult for a child. Rosemary Wells’ “Following Grandfather” is the poignant tale of a young mouse that is ultimately a celebration of memory, self-worth, love and loss. Jenny, a tiny mouse, spends lazy afternoons at Revere Beach with her wise and wonderful Grandfather Mouse. During long walks on the soft sand, Grandfather teaches her the names of all the seashells, stops to trade stories with friends, and helps Jenny see the simple wonders that abound in life. Jenny was proud of her Grandfather, with his stately manner, silver ears and waxed whiskers, and he, also, was proud of this small mouse whose first tooth still rested in his vest pocket. But as stories go, sometimes the ones we love have to leave us forever. As her grandfather’s death overwhelms Jenny, her parents try to console her, but nothing works. Days blend together until one morning she receives a gift; a sign that the journey of grief can be eased, love can be felt once again, and there is hope for life

whenever your friend is ready to do so. — Make a date. Ask your friend to join you for a walk or meal once a week. Don’t take it personally if your friend rebuffs offers or doesn’t return every phone call. Keep trying. — Listen well instead of advising. People often work through grief and trauma by telling their story over and over. Unless you are asked for your advice, don’t be quick to offer it. — Avoid judgments. Your friend’s life and emotional landscape have changed enormously, possibly forever. You may wish he or she would move on, but you can’t speed the process or even ensure that it happens. Let your friend heal at the pace that feels right. A patient of mine lost her husband when they both were in their early 50s. She had been a stay-at-home mom with several hobbies but no profession. Their
after loss. Wells deals with the heartbreak and loneliness suffered by small children after the loss of a loved one, leaving us with the hope that we can heal as her character Jenny has done in the last chapters of this book. For anyone, especially children, who needs inspiration and hope renewed after a time of sadness, this book is highly recommended. In grief, it is normal to wonder if you will ever feel OK as loneliness, fear, confusion and anger make it hard to hope. Yet, grieving with hope is vital to the healing process. James White’s “Grieving: Our Path Back to Peace” is short and easy to read for those who struggle to stay focused during grief. White, a hospital chaplain, speaks from his experience of having worked with many bereaved people. He shares that, most importantly, there is no “normal” timetable for grieving as grieving is a personal and highly individual experience. Bereavement depends on many factors, including your personality and coping style, your life experience, your faith and the nature of the loss. Healing happens gradually; it can’t be forced or hurried. White writes from a Christian perspective and offers a compassionate guide to grief and loss. He shares the subtle differences in an upward spiral through grief and a downward spiral. We may all start in “numbness/shock,” but we can move upward to “emptiness/solitude” or downward to “emptiness/isolation.” The difference may seem small, but even in the midst of deep emptiness and pain solitude is more healing than isolation. The book points out several other small, but significant differences in the upward and downward spiral. Whatever your grief experience, it’s important to be patient with yourself and allow the process to naturally unfold. This is an adult title available to be checked out as an electronic book.
Friends and family stories and activities join the Thanksgiving celebration in this week’s storytimes. The Wednesday programs begin at 10 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. The Saturday program begins at 2 p.m. The programs are free and
kids were in college and unlikely to need much more financial help. (This was decades ago, when college tuition fees were more manageable.) Friends and family asked her if there was something they could do to help, but she couldn’t think of anything. So they had nothing to do. One friend, though, didn’t ask, “Is there something I can do?” Instead, she thought about the woman’s hobbies. The woman loved looking at homes for sale, even though she had no interest in buying. The friend said: “You ought to become a real estate agent, and I’ve done some homework. This is the training and credentials you’ll need.” It worked. The woman spent the next 20 years as one of the most successful agents in her community. (Dr. Komaroff is a physician and professor at Harvard Medical School.

children who attend the story portion of the programs are invited to become creative through the related craft session. All materials are provided for the craft sessions. The stories may vary between programs and the quantity of some craft items may be limited. Friends and family gather together on Wednesday as kids enjoy stories that might highlight “Wilfrid Gordon McDonald Partridge,” “The Doorbell Rang,” “Special Delivery,” “A Special Friend Indeed” or “Family’s Have Together.” For the related crafts, kids could design a picture frame to hold a family photo, decorate a friendship box or use beads and pipe cleaners to create a friendship pin or bracelet. “Over the River and Through the Woods” is just the beginning of the Thanksgiving stories and crafts featured on Saturday. Other books could include “The Night Before Thanksgiving,” “Snappy Little Thanksgiving,” “Thanksgiving in the Barn” or “The Pilgrims Are Marching.” The Thanksgiving crafts might include decorating a paper plate turkey with “Give Thanks For” feathers, creating a table decoration with pilgrims and the words “Happy Thanksgiving” or assembling and beautifying a Thanksgiving gift box. Computers are increasingly popular in our world. The library will be hosting two Basic Computer Skills Classes. The first is tonight at 6 p.m. and the next is Saturday at 2 p.m. For more information, visit the library or call 575622-7101.

rats explain Ronald Reagan’s back-toback landslides? “He’s terrific on TV” — as though the answer to the party’s problems would have been to put together a ticket of Steve Carell and Judge Judy. Other gimmicks the winning side has apparently taken advantage of include mastery of the Internet, social networking, data mining and cellphones. The most dangerous point of all on the political compass is the stage I call “Blame the Customer.” It wasn’t our party’s record or platform or hypocrisy the electorate might have objected to. No, the whole problem turns out to be the voters themselves. Deliberately overlooked in this rationalization of defeat is the fact that just a short while ago, when our side was winning elections, we celebrated these same voters for being so thoughtful, mature, patriotic and wise.

Books Again, 404 W. Second St., is thankful for all of the donations to the store. The books range from arts and crafts to zoology; from Christmas and holidays to history across the centuries. There are items for children, teens, adults and senior citizens. This month, large print books and cookbooks are on sale for $1 each and mass market paperback books are 25 cents each. Then, to show our special thanks this Thanksgiving season, beginning on Friday the store will be featuring a Bag Sale. A bag may be purchased at the door for $5 and filled with any used items in the store. There are fiction and non-fiction books on a variety of genres and topics, talking books, DVDs and music on CD. The more bags bought, the greater the savings. Note, there are a few new items that are full price, such as Jan Girand’s poetry and photographs in “Enchanted Lands, New Mexico” and autographed copies of “Handy Household Hints From Heloise,” along with Books Again canvas bags. Books Again is open on from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. This week only, shoppers are invited to shop on Sunday afternoon from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. The store will be closed on Thanksgiving Day, but will reopen on Friday.

prefer the candidate of the other party, we brand them selfish, mean-spirited, easily duped and lazy. Recently sited at this stage was Rush Limbaugh, who said after the 2012 election, “In a country of children, where the option is either Santa Claus or work ... it’s tough to beat Santa Claus.” The principal drawback to the Blame the Customer theory is that we really only have two political parties in this country. If you’re going to accuse a majority of the voters of being either ethical jellyfish or moral pariahs, you’re probably not going to win their support on a regular basis. The final stage is “Get Me a Winner!” I no longer want to quibble about trivial issues differences. I’m just tired of losing. (This is how the GOP settled on Ike after 20 years in the wilderness and why Democrats are still smitten with Bill Clinton.) Can this candidate win back the White House? Good. Where do I sign up? How should I make out the check? These, believe me, are the predictable stages following the agony of defeat. COPYRIGHT 2012 MARK SHIELDS

RDR Business Review Page is a great way to advertise
The Roswell Daily Record’s Business Review Page is a great way for a business to advertise. The Business Review Pages run three times a week, in the Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday papers. There are only a few spots available right now. If you’ve “been thinking about it”, NOW is the time to get your spot before they’re all gone. The Daily Record’s Sarah Juarez (or your RDR ad rep) can fill you in on the complete details. Phone Sarah at 622-7710 - ext. 202. The basic setup for the Business Review Page is as follows: You sign up and we run your ad on the bottom half of the Business Review Page on it’s assigned day (Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday) each week. We have a maximum of twenty-six ads running per page. After advertising weekly for six months, you will receive a “free feature article” (then another one six months after your first free one
and another one six months after that) as our “Thank You!” for advertising on the Business Review Page. This six month schedule comes from having up to twenty-six (maximum) advertisers per page and a fifty-two week year. With ads starting as low as $21.43 (including tax) per week, the Business
Review Page is ideal for businesses large and small to obtain effective advertising on a small budget. The feature article typically uses two or three photographs and the equivalent of two double-spaced typewritten pages of information about your business. It’s an ad that looks like a written story. This info usually consists of
what you have to offer (services and/or product); who you are (history); where you are located; when you are open; and how to get in touch with you. The typical layout can be altered to fit your circumstance. If you want more pictures, we can cut down on the article’s length. We do what ever works best for you.
Bill Flynt is the Business Review Page Editor. Bill takes the photographs and either writes the text (with your input,) or uses an article that you provide for your feature story. We can also use your photographs, if you have ones that you want to use. Many local business owners (like the three pictured here) have found
this feature to be an ideal way for them to advertise economically. They have an ad in the Roswell Daily Record once a week, on their regular day, and then they have a half page writeup with pictures twice a year to tell the story of their business. Please call Sarah Juarez at 622-7710, ext. 202, for complete information and prices or ask your Roswell Daily Record advertising representative.
In this economy you’ve got to advertise to stay in business, and the Roswell Daily Record's Business Review Page is an effective way to do it.
Call now while there are still spaces available. It’s a great deal and you will see more customers coming in the front door of your business when you advertise in the newspaper. Advertising in the Roswell Daily Record works because it is a great way to inform people about your business and what you have to offer.

Joe Starkey, 74, passed away peacefully Sunday, Nov. 11, 2012, at his home following a lengthy illness. Cremation has taken place and graveside services at South Park Cemetery are scheduled for Thursday, Nov. 15, 2012, at 2 p.m. with Dr. Doug Mills of First United Methodist Church officiating. Joe was born on Dec. 25, 1937, in El Paso, Texas, to Ned Gillespie Starkey and Betty Jane Mullis Starkey. He is preceded in death by his parents and his brother John Blakely Starkey. He is survived by his wife of 52 years Alma Starkey; his son Ned Starkey of Roswell; his niece Deda Idell of Blue Anchor, N.J., and his sister -in-law and brother -in-law Doris and Ken Gilbreath of Friendswood, Texas. Joe graduated from Roswell High School in 1955 and attended Texas University, New Mexico State and the University of New Mexico. Joe’s passion was always cars and some may remember his red 1932 Ford 3window coupe which he built and won many awards. Joe began racing cars and after obtaining a sponsorship, he and his family moved to Dallas where he raced all over the country, including Roswell’s Tour de Ocho Millas race at Bottomless Lakes, twice

After retiring from racing, Joe had several automotive dealerships in Dallas and Roswell and retired from Starkey Motor Company in 2004. Joe will be remembered as a man of character and integrity who loved his wife and son dearly. He wanted nothing more than to keep his loved ones safe, happy and secure.

cents to $85.57 per barrel. Meanwhile, China’s export growth picked up in October, which is another sign of improvement in its economy. That could help support demand for oil and other commodities. But Japan’s economy contracted in the latest quarter, which could indicate that it may be in a recession like many European countries. Most traders, however, are focused on the U.S. budget issues. “That’s going to start to really become the primary driver in the mar-
ket in the next month,” said Gene McGillian, an oil analyst at Tradition Energy.
At the pump, the national average price for gasoline fell less than a penny overnight to $3.437 per gallon, according to AAA, Wright Express and the Oil Price Information Service. That’s nearly 37 cents less than a month ago and only about half a cent more than a year ago. Brent crude, which is used to price international varieties of oil, dropped 33 cents to finish at $109.07 per barrel in London.

That’s more than double its high estimate of $300,000. The foundation says the money raised for its endowment from the sales would allow it to expand support of the visual arts, fulfilling Warhol’s purpose in establishing it.

The annual Guns & Hoses volleyball match between the Roswell area fire and police departments went the way of the Hoses on Monday at Goddard’s Ground Zero Gymnasium. The Hoses won the final two sets after falling behind 2-1 to claim the victory. The Hoses won 25-21 in the first set, but the Guns answered with a 25-22 win in the second set and a 25-19 win in the third set. The Hoses ran away with it after that, winning 25-13 in the fourth set and 15-3 in the deciding fifth set. In the Goddard-Roswell alumni match, which was played prior to the Guns & Hoses match, the Rockets claimed a four-set victory.

MIKE D’ANTONI TAPPED AS NEW LAKERS COACH
LOS ANGELES (AP) — The Los Angeles Lakers hired Mike D’Antoni late Sunday night, signing the former coach of the Suns and Knicks to replace Mike Brown. The Lakers and D’Antoni’s agent, Warren LeGarie, confirmed the deal two days after the Lakers fired Brown five games into the season. D’Antoni agreed to a three-year deal with a team option for a fourth season. D’Antoni got the highprofile job running the 16time NBA champions only after the club’s negotiations broke down with former Lakers coach Phil Jackson. The 11-time NBA champion coach met with Lakers owners Jerry and Jim Buss and general manager Mitch Kupchak on Saturday to discuss a return for a third stint on Los Angeles’ bench. The Lakers’ top brass instead went with D’Antoni, who coached Lakers point guard Steve Nash during five seasons in Phoenix. Nash won two MVP awards while running D’Antoni’s signature uptempo offense for the coach’s final four seasons, when they won at least 54 games each season and reached two Western Conference finals. D’Antoni then coached New York for the past four seasons, resigning last March after a largely unsuccessful tenure featuring just one playoff appearance and no postseason victories. D’Antoni also coached the Denver Nuggets during the lockoutshortened 1998-99 season.
NEW YORK (AP) — Mike Trout and Bryce Harper were teammates on the Scottsdale Scorpions last fall. The outfielders arrived in the major leagues on the same April day this year, both played in the All-Star game and they won Rookie of the Year awards a half-hour apart Monday, the vanguard of baseball’s next generation. The 21-year -old Trout was a unanimous pick as the youngest AL rookie winner, and the 20-year-old Harper edged Arizona pitcher Wade Miley 112 points to 105 to become the second-youngest winner of the NL honor. “It’s pretty neat,” said Trout, the son of former Minnesota minor leaguer Jeff Trout.

To borrow from Porky Pig, that’s all folks. The 2012 high school football regular season is officially over. Now the real fun begins — it’s playoff time. And, as much as I hate it, I have to admit that I was wrong. I didn’t think Roswell would get a bid to the 4A playoffs, but it did. The Coyotes snatched the final atlarge berth and made the playoffs for the third straight season under head coach Robert Arreola. It marks the first run of three straight playoff berths for the Coyote program since 1986-88. No. 12 Roswell visits No. 5 Deming on Friday at 7 p.m. The Wildcats, who won District 34A, are 8-2 and were ranked seventh in last week’s Freeman Rankings. The two teams share two common opponents — Chaparral and Santa

PITTSBURGH (AP) — The Pittsburgh Steelers escaped with a victory. The health of their franchise quarterback is another matter entirely. The Steelers edged the woeful Kansas City Chiefs 16-13 in overtime on Monday night but lost Ben Roethlisberger for most of the second half — and perhaps a lot longer — with a right shoulder injury. The Steelers (6-3) went on to their fourth consecutive victory. Shaun Suisham kicked a 23-yard field goal 51 seconds into the extra period, one play after Lawrence Timmons intercepted Kansas City’s Matt Cassel and returned it to the 5. Jamaal Charles ran for 100 yards and a score for the Chiefs (1-8), who have
lost six straight. The Chiefs rallied in spite of themselves in the final 2 minutes. Cassel led Kansas City 52 yards — converting a 4th-and-15 in the process — to set up a 46-yard field goal by R yan Succop as time expired. Kansas City’s only other victory this season came in overtime, a stunning upset in New Orleans in September. Any chance at a repeat faded when Cassel’s pass on the second play of extra period landed in the hands of Timmons, who returned it 23 yards to set up Suisham’s second gamewinning field goal of the season. Byron Leftwich, playing for the first time in two years, completed 7 of 14 passes for 73 yards.

To no one’s surprise, Goddard got the No. 1 seed in the 4A playoffs.

No. 4 Belen (27-7) and No. 6 Aztec (63-0). Throw last week’s win over Roswell in there and the Rockets have already beaten a third of the field by at least 20 points this season. The seeding of the bracket went largely as I expected, with two notable exceptions. The first is Roswell’s inclusion. The second is the order of Nos. 6, 7, 8 and 9. My prediction was, in order, Goddard, Los Lunas, Artesia, Belen, Deming, Moriarty, Aztec, Piedra Vista, Far mington, St. Pius X, Santa Fe and Los Alamos. The actual order is Goddard, Los Lunas, Artesia, Belen, Deming, Aztec, Piedra Vista, Moriarty, Farmington, St. Pius X, Santa Fe

and Roswell. I had Moriarty at No. 6 on the strength of winning its district. But, PV did beat Moriarty 42-0 in the regular season, so I can see why the seeding committee put the Panthers ahead of the Pintos. The order the seeding committee used also avoided a Piedra Vista vs. Farmington rematch in the first round. The seeding is always a point of contention, but I think the seeding committee, for the most part, got it right this year. And there’s one thing in particular that I love about the bracket — Goddard and Artesia are on opposite sides, which means we could end up with an all-District 4-4A state championship game.
Roswell Daily Record And that’s exactly what I’m predicting. I think Goddard beats Belen in one semifinal and Artesia beats Los Lunas in the other semifinal, setting up a Rocket-Bulldog showdown at the Bulldog Bowl for the state title.
The rest of the story...
The 2A bracket went largely as expected as well — in order, Santa Rosa, Tularosa, Texico, Hatch Valley, Tucumcari, Dexter, Claytong, Laguna-Acoma, Lordsburg, Navajo Prep, Ramah and Mesilla Valley Christian. Santa Rosa is the heavy favorite, but, after that, I think there’s room for plenty of upsets. I was surprised to see Hatch

the voting results when they were announced on television. “My heart was beating a little bit,” Harper said. Trout, who turned 21 on Aug. 7, received all 28 first-place votes from the AL panel of the Baseball Writers’ Association of America. The Los Angeles Angels center fielder was the eighth unanimous AL pick and the first since Tampa Bay’s Evan Longoria in 2008. There could be more to come, too. Trout is among five finalists for AL MVP and is considered the chief challenger to Triple Crown winner Miguel Cabrera for that award, which will be announced Thursday. “It would just top it off,”

Trout said. Trout hit .326, secondbest in the league to Cabrera’s .330, with 30 homers and 83 RBIs, and he led the majors with 129 runs and 49 steals. He joined Ted Williams, Mel Ott and Alex Rodriguez as the only players to hit .320 or higher with 30 or more homers in seasons they started as a 20-year-old. Trout received the maximum 140 points. Oakland outfielder Yoenis Cespedes was second with 63, followed by Texas pitcher Yu Darvish (46), who joined Trout as the only players listed on every ballot. Detroit second baseman Lou Whitaker had been the youngest AL winner in 1978, but he was 3 months, 5 days older than Trout on the day he took home the award. In addition to Trout and

Valley get the No. 4 over Tucumcari. As a whole, I thought Tucumcari played a more dif ficult schedule than Hatch and I figured that would give the Rattlers the edge in seeding. You can probably make a case that even Dexter deserved to be ahead of Hatch Valley. And the Freeman Rankings have Tucumcari fourth, Dexter fifth and Hatch sixth. I think the seeding committee got the order wrong, but all the right teams are in the field. And, when it’s all said and done, that’s all you can ask for as a coach — to be in the field and have a chance to win the blue trophy.

Longoria, the only other unanimous AL winners were Nomar Garciaparra, Derek Jeter, Tim Salmon, Sandy Alomar Jr., Mark McGwire and Carlton Fisk. The Washington Nationals outfielder got 16 of 32 first-place votes from the NL panel. Miley was second with 12 first-place votes, followed by Cincinnati slugger Todd Frazier with three firsts and 45 points. Harper appeared on every ballot, and Bill Center of U-T San Diego was the only voter who didn’t include Miley. Harper was the top pick in the 2010 amateur draft and batted .270 with 22 home runs and 59 RBIs as Washington brought postseason play to the nation’s capital for the first time since 1933. Only Tony Conigliaro (24) hit more home runs as a teenager.

DEAR ABBY UNIVERSAL PRESS SYNDICATE
DEAR REFORMED: That’s a start. And in the future, your cherished companion should ride in the BACK seat — with the windows closed and wearing a restraint so that in the event of another traffic problem he won’t be reinjured. Because you are in communication with your veterinarian, ask him or her what type is recommended. #####
DEAR ABBY: I want to share my experience with being a distracted driver. One gorgeous, sunny day a few months ago, I happened to glance down at my iPad and the next thing I knew, I had hit the car in front of me. The airbags engaged and hit me and my golden retriever, who was in the front seat with me. He was so freaked out he jumped out the window into oncoming traffic. I chased him, but lost him as he darted through traffic on the busy streets. Fortunately, a couple found him and brought him to a vet who
DEAR ABBY: I am a mature, adult woman in my 40s who has never had a good relationship with my mother. Candidly, she is a mean person who has left a lot of hurt feelings
in her wake. It makes being close to her impossible. Our entire family feels the way I do about her, including her only surviving sister. I will be remarrying soon. Although I feel that inviting my mother to my wedding is the right thing to do, it could mean potentially inviting disaster — literally. I’m having trouble coming to terms with this decision and would love your input. NEEDS GUIDANCE IN CALIFORNIA
DEAR NEEDS GUIDANCE: Your mother appears to be a bitter, possibly disturbed woman. If she isn’t invited, the hurt and angry feelings could reverberate for years. Because the rest of your family knows the way she is, consider inviting her on the condition that she will be on her best behavior — AND with the understanding that if she “lapses,” some family members will escort her out. #####
DEAR ABBY: My husband has met my coworkers and their spouses at various company-related events. He recently mentioned that he has seen “Wally,” who is married to one of my co-workers, “Anna,” with another woman on more than one occasion. Apparently, Wally didn’t recognize my husband. Should I “casually” mention to Anna that my husband saw her husband and where, and let her figure it out for herself? My husband said it’s up to me to decide whether to tell her or not. If it were me, I’d want to know. OLDER BUT NOT WISER IN PENNSYLVANIA DEAR O.B.N.W.: I suppose you could casually mention it to Anna, but don’t be surprised if she casually responds that the woman is his sister, his cousin or a daughter by a former marriage. It may be perfectly innocent.

Dear Readers: With the holidays right around the corner, many CANDLES will be burning, so I thought I would share some hints: * An easy way to light a deep candle is to use a lit piece of uncooked spaghetti. You also can buy fireplace candles, which are much longer and work well, too. * Did you know that you can easily clean candles? All you have to do is give them a wash in warm (not hot), sudsy water and rub lightly until they are clean. * You can straighten unstable candles by using a small piece of modeling clay, or carefully lighting the bottom of the candle and letting some wax drip into the candleholder, then setting the candle in, or lastly, using a hot-glue gun to glue the candle in place. * When you light a candle, have some type of reminder visible so you remember to blow it out. One reader put a dish towel on a door handle, another put a rubber band around her wrist. So, pick something that works for you.

I solve the problem by rubbing it on a nail file to remove the hard part, and the eraser is usable again. I.H. in New Hampshire
Dear Heloise: Need more space to hang towels and washcloths, but can’t install any more towel rods on your bathroom walls? Get an inexpensive, spring-loaded shower-curtain rod and install it above your bathtub. Hang it inside your present shower curtain, about halfway over the tub. Kathi P., Horseshoe Bend, Ark. Dear Heloise: Here are two hints for seniors: First of all, for the hearing aids that collect earwax, there are little cleaning tools that come with them that are difficult to use and not very effective. I have discovered that the plastic, soft picks that are made for cleaning between teeth are perfect for grabbing the earwax from the hearing aid. My second hint has to do with taking your prescription bottles to your doctor visits. I use a small, mesh lingerie bag, which is for laundry, for toting all those bottles. It is see-through enough so that you can spot, without opening, if you have everything, and it is safe in that it has a zipper and will not let those bottles spill out. I hope these tips are useful to senior readers. Betty in Texas Dear Heloise: I stack my outdoor furniture cushions on the outdoor coffee table and cover them with an extra grill cover to protect them from rain. It keeps them nice and dry, takes less than two minutes to cover, saves space on the deck and beats bringing them inside each time the weather is questionable. I store this extra grill cover in the storage area of my gas grill so it’s always handy. Kathy in Wisconsin

Google, Amazon and Starbucks face questions about tax avoidance LONDON (AP) — British lawmakers on Monday accused major multinational companies of aggressive tax avoidance, amid calls by the U.K. government for a global crackdown on firms that seek to evade taxes. In sometimes bitter exchanges at a three-hour parliamentary committee hearing, legislators questioned Starbucks, Google and Amazon about the amount they pay to the U.K. government in taxation. Lawmakers scoffed as T roy Alstead, Starbucks global chief financial officer, claimed that the fact the coffee giant had reported losses for all but one of the 15 years it has operated in the U.K. was due to poor performance — and not an attempt to minimize its taxes in Britain. “You have run the business for 15 years and are losing money and you are
carrying on investing here. It just doesn’t ring true,” said Margaret Hodge, head of parliament’s Public Accounts Committee. Alstead acknowledged to the panel that its taxable profits in the U.K. are calculated after royalties paid to its European headquarters in the Netherlands have been deducted. He said that Starbucks had a special tax arrangement with the Dutch government covering its headquarters, but declined to give details. “Respectfully I can assure you there is no tax avoidance here,” Alstead told the panel. Companies operating in Europe can base themselves in any of the 27 European Union nations, allowing them to take advantage of a particular country’s low tax rates. Alstead insisted that Starbucks was not seeking to

ed lawmakers. “The idea that you come here and simply don’t answer the question and pretend ignorance — it’s just not on, it’s awful,” Hodge said, calling Cecil a “not serious person.” Matt Brittin, chief executive of Google UK, told the committee that his company picked Ireland and Bermuda as main bases because tax rates were favorable. Brittin denied one lawmaker’s accusation that the Internet search giant was breaching its own code of “Don’t be evil.” “We comply with the law in the U.K.,” he said. “It would be very hard for us to pay more tax here based on the way we are required to structure by the system.” Hodge fired back, saying lawmakers were “not accusing you of being illegal, we are accusing you of being immoral.”
mislead investors or tax authorities about its performance in Britain. “We are not at all pleased about our financial performance here. It is fundamentally true everything we are saying and everything we have said historically,” he told the committee. Last week, Britain and Germany called for the world’s largest economies to do more to collaborate to fight tax evasion, particularly in online commerce. Hodge told witness Andrew Cecil, public policy director at Amazon, that many people in Britain are angered over the low tax rates paid by the retailer. “Your entire activity is here yet you pay no tax here and that really riles us,” she said. Cecil’s claims that he did not know certain information about Amazon or could not make it public infuriat-
George Entwistle, center, the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) Director General, departs Portcullis house in central London on Oct. 23. The BBC chief says allegations about decades of sexual abuse by its longtime TV host Jimmy Savile.
Rupert Murdoch gleeful at BBC debacle in Britain LONDON (AP) — Few seem to be enjoying the management meltdown at the venerable BBC more than Rupert Murdoch, the News Corp. chief whose rival British newspapers have been caught up in their own lengthy, embarrassing and expensive phonehacking scandal. But the troubles for both media organizations highlight that the news industry in Britain is at rock-bottom in public esteem, and could face increased restrictions from the government of Prime Minister David Cameron, which appears convinced it has been unable to police itself. The British Broadcasting Corp. has moved into full-bore damage control since it retracted mistaken allegations by its marquee news program that a politician sexually abused children. That serious mistake followed the BBC’s earlier failure to report on widespread child sex abuse allegations against one of its biggest stars, the late Jimmy Savile. The scandal follows several years of turmoil over the phone-hacking scandal, which exploded with the discovery that

It then will have two more rounds of sales events including a 10 p.m. sale on electronics and another sale at 5 a.m. the next day. Sears Holdings Corp. said its Sears stores will open at 8 p.m. Thanksgiving Day and will stay open overnight until 10 p.m. Friday. Last year Sears stores were closed on Thanksgiving. The company’s Kmart stores have been open on Thanksgiving for years. Kohl’s Corp. and Macy’s Inc. will again throw open their doors at midnight, following Thanksgiving. J.C.

NEW YORK (AP) — Target Corp. will open its doors at 9 p.m. on Thanksgiving, three hours earlier than a year ago, to kick off the holiday shopping season. The discounter joins several other major retailers, including Wal-Mart Stores Inc., that are opening earlier in the evening on the holiday and staggering deals over the two-day period.

employees of Murdoch’s News of the World tabloid hacked into a kidnapped girl’s mobile phone. Several news executives have been arrested. A report due this month from Lord Justice Brian Leveson, based on months of jarring testimony about wrongdoing by Murdoch’s reporters and others, may prompt the government to impose statutory regulation on the British print press, which is overseen by an industry watchdog. Many say the reputation of the British media is at an all-time low. grudge Murdoch’s against the BBC was vented in detail in a 2009 speech by his son James, a TV executive who railed against the BBC’s funding, which comes from a television license fee paid by every TV household in Britain. BBC chief George Entwistle resigned this weekend, and on Monday the head of news, Helen Boaden, and deputy Stephen Mitchell were temporarily removed from their positions, though the broadcaster said neither were implicated in the errors involving its child sex abuse reports.
