US, Mexico sign Colorado River pact
CORONADO, Calif. (AP) — The United States and Mexico on Tuesday signed a pact for new rules on sharing water from the Colorado River, capping a fiveyear ef fort on how to spread the pain of drought and reap the benefits of wet years. The far-reaching agreement gives Mexico badly needed water storage capacity in Lake Mead, which stretches across Nevada and Arizona. Mexico will forfeit some of its share of the river dur-
ing shortages, bringing itself in line with western U.S. states that already have agreed how much they will surrender when waters recede. Mexico also will capture some surpluses when waters rise. Also under the plan, water agencies in California, Arizona and Nevada will buy water from Mexico, which will use some of the money to upgrade its canals and other infrastructure. The agreement, coming in the final days of the
administration of Mexican President Felipe Calderon, is a major amendment to a 1944 treaty considered sacred by many south of the border. The treaty grants Mexico 1.5 million acre-feet of river water each year — enough to supply about 3 million homes — making it the lifeblood of Tijuana and other cities in northwest Mexico.
The pact represents a major departure from years of hard feelings in Mexico See WATER, Page A9

Cease-fire remains elusive

Syrian rebels seize base, arms trove RUTGERS JOINS BIG 10
PISCATAWAY, N.J. (AP) — As the Big East was being picked apart, Rutgers was looking for a way out and a new place to show off a football program that has been resurrected in the past decade. Not only did Rutgers find that escape hatch, the Scarlet Knights ended up in one of the most desirable neighborhoods in college sports. Rutgers joined the Big Ten on Tuesday, leaving the Big East behind and cashing in on the school’s investment in a football team that only 10 years ago seemed incapable of competing ... - PAGE B1

BASE OF THE 46TH REGIMENT, Syria (AP) — After a nearly two-month siege, Syrian rebels overwhelmed a large military base in the north of the country and made off with tanks, ar mored vehicles and truckloads of munitions that rebel leaders say will give them a boost in the fight against President Bashar Assad’s army. The rebel capture of the base of the Syrian army’s 46th Regiment is a sharp blow to the government’s efforts to roll back rebels gains and shows a rising level of organization among opposition forces. More important than the base’s fall, however, are the weapons the rebels found inside. At a rebel base where much of the haul was taken after the weekend victory, rebel fighters unloaded half a dozen large trucks piled high with green boxes full of mortars, artillery shells, rockets and
rifles taken from the base. Parked nearby were five tanks, two armored vehicles, two rocket launchers and two heavy-caliber artillery cannons. Around 20 Syrian soldiers captured in the battle were put to work carrying munitions boxes, barefoot and stripped to the waist. Rebels refused to let reporters talk to them or see where they were being held. “There has never been a battle before with this much booty,” said Gen. Ahmad al-Faj of the rebels Joint Command, a grouping of rebel brigades that was involved in the siege. Speaking on Monday at the rebel base, set up in a former customs of fice at Syria’s Bab al-Hawa border crossing with Turkey, he said the haul would be distributed among the brigades.

Prez courts Asia; world intrudes PHNOM PENH, Cambodia (AP) — For all the attention wrenched elsewhere in recent days — on new violence in the Middle East, the “fiscal cliff” back home — President Barack Obama’s speedy trip to Southeast Asia achieved a major goal: It was clearly seen in the region as a validation of Asia’s strategic importance as the U.S. refocuses its foreign policy to counter China’s clout. It wasn’t easy. Even in a Buddhist monastery in Thailand, Obama could not escape the budget woes waiting for him back home. And his historic visit to Myanmar was all but drowned out by the rocket fire and missile strikes between Israel and Gaza.

Operation Christmas Child exceeds goal ILISSA GILMORE RECORD STAFF WRITER
Donations from area communities during Operation Christmas Child’s recent National Collection week will provide more than 5,000 shoe boxes full of gifts for needy children around the world this year. Grace Community Church accepted donations during the week of Nov. 12 to 19. At the end of the collection period Monday, the effort had collected 5,003 shoe boxes, exceeding its goal of 4,600, said Teresa McKee, collection center coordinator. That number is up 554
from 4,449 boxes collected in 2011. Donations came not only from Roswell, but also from communities and churches in areas such as Artesia, Carlsbad, Lovington and Ruidoso. “Each year, it has just been amazing watching it grow,” she said. “Our churches were just so giving and it’s a great example of the Christian community working together to provide for people in need.” A truck packed with the items left early Tuesday mor ning for one of the organization’s distribution centers in Denver, where gifts will be prepared for

Guerreros 4th Toy Run set for Sunday NOAH VERNAU RECORD STAFF WRITER
Guerreros Motorcycle Group will have a parade this Sunday at noon for its fourth annual toy run that benefits the CASA program. The parade begins at the Roswell Mall and will make its way south down Main Street to Skeen Furniture Warehouse, 1300 S. Main St. The parade will feature Santa Claus, reindeer and Frosty the Snowman. Santa will load up his sleigh with donated toys at Sam’s Club, which has served as the primary drop location for the toy drive this month. Sam’s Club will also present a check to the CASA program Sunday. The parade will break for about 20 minutes at Skeen Furniture Warehouse for donuts and beverages and to collect more toys. The parade will come back up Main Street before concluding with a party at Third Street and Railroad Avenue in a warehouse behind Slanky’s Customs. The party is open to anyone who donates a toy or makes a $10 contribution to CASA. The party is expected to take
place from about 1 to 4 p.m. Jorge Ar mendariz, president of the club, said the Guerreros fourth annual Toy Run is an opportunity for the community to get outside, have some fun and help the kids. “It’s a good cause. It’s for the kids,” Armendariz said. “To me, helping kids is the best thing you can do out there. CASA is doing a great job, and we’re going to support them as much as we can each year.” Armendariz said last year the parade saw about 150 bikers participate and that he hopes the club will double that total this year. “Bikers have a bad image, and we’re trying to change that mentality. We’re trying to say that we dress and get up the same way as everybody, we just choose to ride motorcycle. We’re a good bunch of people trying to help the community, and what better way than helping the kids in CASA?” Those who would like to contribute to the toy drive prior to Sunday’s parade are encouraged to drop toy donations at Sam’s Club, 4400 N. Main St. firstname.lastname@example.org

Pueblo, Colo., teenager decides to return home JESSICA PALMER RECORD STAFF WRITER
Danica Paulsen, 15, who disappeared from her home in Pueblo, Colo., early in October, was reunited with her family Thursday. According to Roswell Police Department spokeswoman Sabrina Morales, she told the police that it was after her picture appeared in the newspaper that she decided it was time to return home. Danica’s father Doug Paulsen spoke with the Daily Record, Tuesday, about his reactions after she vanished and then later when she was retur ned. “We hadn’t heard anything about her for the first three weeks.. ... We had no idea where she was. We were scared every time we heard about a body found somewhere. For all we knew she was lying in a ditch some place,” he said. The disappearance of his daughter has left him exhausted. “There have been a lot of sleepless nights. As a matter of fact, I was heading to New Mexico to look for her myself when I heard from the Roswell Police Department. “I can’t say enough good things about the Roswell Police Department,” Paulsen said. He had particular praise for Chief Al Solis, who assigned a detective to

The family is happy to be reunited with their daughter, although Paulsen admits they have problems to address. “I’m very relieved. My wife and her little sister are estatic to have her back again.” Paulsen had advice for any parents facing this difficult situation. “My advice would be never give up. Never stop looking. After it happens, just continually search. Work closely with the police. Get your child registered with the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children as quickly as possible.” About the media, Paulsen said, “I’m extremely thankful for the press release the police sent out. You folks have been a tremendous help in getting the word out. The media were the straw that broke the camel’s back. After it appeared in the paper, the Roswell police received other phone calls from people who thought they had seen her.” Their next goal is to try to heal. “We will be going to family counseling to resolve the issues that caused her to leave in the first place,” he said.

Hostess: Talks to avert shutdown fail
UNDATED (AP) — Hostess Brands Inc. lived to die another day. The maker of Twinkies and Ding Dongs said late Tuesday that it failed to reach an agreement with its second biggest union. As a result, Hostess plans to continue with a hearing today in which a bankruptcy court judge will decide if the company can shutter its operations. The renewed talks between Hostess and The Bakery, Confectionery, Tobacco Workers and Grain Millers International Union came after the company declared last week that it would move to wind down its business and start selling off its assets in bankruptcy court. The company cited a crippling strike that was started on Nov. 9 by the union, which represents 30 percent of Hostess workers. After making its case to liquidate on Monday, the bankruptcy judge hearing the case noted that the two sides hadn’t yet tried resolving their differences through private mediation. The judge noted that 18,000 jobs were on the line and urged the company and union to try to resolve their differences. Both sides agreed to hold mediation proceedings on Tuesday. In a statement late Tuesday, Hostess said it would not comment on the breakdown in talks other than to say that mediation “was unsuccessful.” Hostess shut down its three dozen plants late last week after it said the strike by the bakers union hurt its ability to maintain normal production. The bakers union says the company’s demise was the result of years of mismanagement, however, and that workers have already given steep concessions over the years. Hostess, weighed down by management turmoil, rising labor costs and the
changing tastes of Americans, is making its second trip through Chapter 11 bankruptcy restructuring. The company, based in Irving, Texas, had brought on CEO Gregory Rayburn as a restructuring expert in part to renegotiate its contract with labor unions.
The company reached an agreement with its biggest union, the International Brotherhood of Teamsters, on a contract that dramatically reduced pension contributions, as well as slashing wages and health benefits. But the company said the bakers union stopped returning its calls about a month ago. The Teamsters urged the smaller union to hold a secret ballot on whether members wanted to continue striking. Many workers in the bakers union decided to cross picket lines this week, Hostess said it wasn’t enough to keep operations at normal levels.
Rayburn said that Hostess was already operating on razor thin margins and that the strike was the final blow. The bakers union meanwhile pointed to the steep raises executives were given last year as the company was spiraling down toward bankruptcy.
The company’s announcement last week that it would move to liquidate prompted a rush on Hostess treats across the country, with many businesses selling out of Twinkies within hours.
Even if Hostess goes out of business, its popular brands will likely find a second life after being snapped up by buyers. The company says several potential buyers have expressed interest in the brands. Although Hostess’ sales have been declining in recent years, the company still does about $2.5 billion in business each year. Twinkies alone brought in $68 million so far this year.

Rubble cleanup a massive task in NY, NJ

and yards. In Long Beach, N.Y., a barrier island city of 33,000 people that was completely inundated by the storm surge, public works crews worked 16hour shifts to scoop up hundreds of thousands of cubic yards of sand that had buried city streets. The mountain of silt they have created now stands five stories high. A powerful mechanism has been at work to make it happen: In New York, the city’s regular army of 6,000 sanitation workers has been supplemented by battalions of private contractors, hired under a $92 million FEMA contract administered by the Army Corps of Engineers. Garbage barge terminals on Staten Island that were last used to remove debris from the World Trade Center after 9/11 have been pressed into service again, this time carrying Sandy’s wreckage up the Hudson River, toward a landfill outside Seneca Falls. Rubble has also been moving by truck to landfills in Pennsylvania, some of which have been stretched to the limit. In the devastated beach town of Seaside Heights, N.J., famous as the location for MTV’s “Jersey
Shore,” there was outrage after officials asked a towing company to clear the streets of flooded cars. Numerous residents complained that the company also hauled away undamaged vehicles from private property. Some owners were told they would have to pay as much as $900 to retrieve their vehicles. Prosecutors in Ocean County, N.J., said they are investigating. An attorney for the company, APK Towing, blamed the episode on “messed-up” communication in the chaotic days after the storm. Boats ripped free by the tide pose another challenge. In Broad Channel, a maritime village built on an island in the middle of New York City’s Jamaica Bay, a motor yacht with the words “S.S. Minnow” spray-painted on its side sat partially blocking traffic on the only road in and out of the community for two weeks before it was hauled away. Up and down the coast, sanitation crews have been working seven days a week, including holidays, since the storm hit, starting before dawn and continuing into the night, when the task of handling

Wal-Mart workers again walked off their jobs last week in Dallas, Oakland, Calif., and Seattle.

Union officials couldn’t give a number of how many have walked out, but Fogleman said so far it has just involved a handful of stores and employees. Union officials promise the demonstrations will
NEW YORK (AP) — Just a few months ago, the parking lot at Jacob Riis Park on New York City’s Rockaway seashore was filled with happy beachgoers. Now, it is home to a mountain of misery from Superstor m Sandy — a growing pile of garbage containing everything from mangled appliances, splintered plywood and sodden drywall to shreds of clothing and family photos. The seagull-pecked pile, at least two stories high, three quarters of a mile long, and fed by an endless caravan of dump trucks, is just part of a staggering round-the-clock operation along hundreds
of miles of coastline to clear away the mangled mess of homes, cars and boats so the rebuilding can begin. Three weeks in, it is an effort that has strained the resources of sanitation departments and landfill operators, and caused headaches and heartache for thousands of families in the sprawling disaster zone. The lucky have only had to empty their basements of soggy belongings. Others have been forced to strip their flood-ravaged homes down to the studs and pile drywall, furniture, clothing and appliances on the sidewalk.
“We’ve seen people put virtually all their worldly possessions at the curb,” said Mike Deery, a spokesman for the town of which Hempstead, includes several beach and bay hamlets on Long Island’s South Shore. “We’ve gone down streets and picked up the entire contents of homes, and come back the next day and have it look like we haven’t been there in months.” In the three weeks since the storm, New York City alone has removed an estimated 271,000 tons of wreckage from flooded neighborhoods. That does not include the downed limbs and trunks of some 26,000 damaged trees. New Jersey shore towns have been adding to big piles of rubble just like the one at Jacob Riis. One of the biggest ones, in Long Branch, reaches nearly three stories into the sky from a vacant lot a block from the ocean. As of Friday, auto insurance companies had reported storm damage to at least 52,000 vehicles, according to the National Insurance Crime Bureau. Many of those cars floated on the tide and were left smashed, silt-filled and strewn across sidewalks
NEW YORK (AP) — Federal labor of ficials said Tuesday they don’t expect to decide before Thursday on whether to seek an injunction on behalf of Wal-Mart Stores Inc. to stop a union-backed group from encouraging worker walk-outs that are expected to culminate Friday. That’s the traditional start of the holiday shopping season. The world’s largest retailer, based in Bentonville, Ark., on Friday filed an unfair labor practice charge with the National Labor Relations Board against the United Food and Commercial Workers Inter national Union. It said the demon-
strations organized by union-backed OUR Walmart threaten to disrupt its business and intimidate customers and other store workers. Meanwhile, OUR Walmart filed its own charge on Tuesday with the labor board. It cited attempts by Wal-Mart to deter workers from participating in what the group believes to be legally protected walkouts. Nancy Cleeland, a spokeswoman at the NLRB, said Monday that the board aimed to move quickly to assess the merit of Wal-Mart’s complaint since it involved charges of illegal picketing. If the labor board decides in Wal-Mart’s favor, the mat-
ter still must go to district court. “The legal issues — including questions about what constitutes picketing and whether the activity was aimed at gaining recognition for the union — are complex,” said Cleeland in a statement. She said that the agency had staff members at Wal-Mart headquarters on Monday to take affidavits. It’s also in touch with the UFCW. “We appreciate the urgency demonstrated by the NLRB in undertaking its review,” said Dan Fogleman, a Wal-Mart spokesman in a statement. “We understand that the multi-state, multifaceted nature of the
union’s conduct and the board’s desire to perform a thorough review of the facts means that a decision will take a bit more time.” Union officials say that the walk-outs and demonstrations are to protest what it believes are WalMart’s retaliation tactics against workers who have been publicly speaking out about working conditions and wages. The tactics allegedly include scheduling changes and reduction in workers’ hours. OUR Walmart argues that because the planned walkouts are in protest of what it believes are unfair labor practices, workers are legally protected under
“Their strategy is to hit and run,” said Elias Hanna, a retired Lebanese army general and Beirutbased strategic analyst. “They’re trying to hurt the regime where it hurts by bisecting and compartmentalizing Syria in order to dilute the regime’s power.” The 46th Regiment was a major pillar of the government’s force near the norther n city of Aleppo, Syria’s economic hub, and its fall cuts a major supply line to the regime’s army, Hanna said. Government forces have been battling
rebels for months over control of Aleppo. “It’s a tactical turning point that may lead to a strategic shift,” he said. The final assault that took the base came after more than 50 days of siege that left the soldiers inside demoralized, according to fighters who took part. The Syrian government does not respond to requests for comment on military affairs and said nothing about the base’s capture. It says the rebels are terrorists backed by foreign powers that seek to

nail-studded debris gets dicey. Some of the workers are spending their days off cleaning out their own ravaged homes.
In New Jersey, Gov. Chris Christie has sought to speed the cleanup by suspending safety rules that normally limit how many hours or days in a row a truck driver can work without time off. Speed is seen as key by many people working on the recovery.
On New York City’s heavily flooded Rockaway Peninsula, home to 115,000 people, private contractors have been in a race against mold. The floodwaters left behind a nasty mess of contaminants. Residents were urged to clean carefully, especially in areas where the water might have been tainted with sewage.
New York City’s deputy mayor of operations, Cas Holloway, said the beach sand that was scooped off the streets has to be checked for contamination from such things as fuel oil.
“You can’t just put that stuff back on the beach,” he said.

Chinese and Vietnamese seem proud A4 Wednesday, November 21, 2012
SANTA FE — To the casual tourist, communism in China and Vietnam seems to be working well enough to survive a long time. The teaming masses of young people in the cities seem happy with their lot. They all have jobs and a wellorganized life. Even the tour guides receive a regular government paycheck, even if they have nothing to do during low seasons. The normal routine is to save enough money to rent an apartment, buy a car, find a mate and have one child. The one-child rule now has an exception. If both husband and wife are only children, they are allowed to have two children. Back in the days when nearly everyone was a farmer, couples wanted to have as many boys as possible to help with chores. Now customs require families to help a son buy an apartment and provide for the family. Parents of the

Motor scooters have the two outside lanes in each direction. Crossing the street with two lanes of cars and four lanes of motorcycles coming in both directions is an act of faith. The rule in Vietnam is not to dodge them. Let them dodge you. All six lanes of vehicles will gauge your speed. If you maintain a steady pace, they will miss you. If you suddenly slow down or speed up, you throw off their timing and the result is messy.

Hanoi, no one in Saigon complained about us continuing to call it Saigon. We sensed only good will from our Chinese gover nment tour guides. Back home we see commercials about how China now owns us. But the prevailing mood in China appears to be that China has invested in us and if America goes under, China is left with a worthless investment in our country’s treasury notes. And treasury notes aren’t like stock with voting rights. China still has a long way to go. The vast rural sections of the country still have to be brought along. China has preferred to invest in our nation and others rather than with finishing the job quickly in its own country.

Skip the cliffhanger
Would it really be so much to ask that President Barack Obama and congressional leaders drop the “Gunfight at the O.K. Corral” act? Couldn’t they just forget the posturing and get to work on a deficit reduction package that includes fixes to everything else looming at the edge of the “fiscal cliff”? Alas, it probably is too much to ask. The problems are enormous and have been allowed to fester for decades. The election left a divided White House and Congress in status quo-ante. Lobbyists are lined up from K Street to the Capitol, each one representing interests that insist on being left whole, or better. To mix a couple of metaphors, there are too many fingers in the pie and too many oxen that stand to be gored. That all of this could be allowed to drag on through the holidays, with the same kind of sniping that characterized the last two years, simply would be reprehensible. Sooner or later, everyone will have to accept some variation of 2010’s Simpson-Bowles deficit reduction plan. It should be sooner. Unlike two years ago, after Democrats endured a “shellacking” in the 2010 elections, Obama has the upper hand. Not only has he just been re-elected, he has the option of doing nothing and letting Republicans take the blame. If Congress doesn’t act before year’s end, all of the 2001 and 2003 Bush tax cuts will expire. Taxes will go up across the board. In addition, many of the 2009 middle-class tax cuts will expire, too, along with the Medicare “doc fix,” the unemployment benefits extension and waivers for the alternative minimum tax that upper-middle-class families have to pay. The debt ceiling may need to be raised again. Furthermore, “sequestration” will kick in, an automatic 10-year cut of $1 trillion in spending, taken equally from defense and domestic programs. That stems from a Republican decision two summers ago to kick the can down the road, hoping to retake the White House in 2012. All of this could be addressed by the new Congress next year, but the short-term effects could slow recovery, bring on at least a mild recession and create market uncertainties. The president could stand at the White House podium and say, “I offered these guys a deal, but they were just protecting rich people.” A mix of tax increases, tax reform and spending cuts amounting to $4 trillion in savings over 10 years is where former Sen. Alan Simpson, R-Wyo., and former Clinton White House Chief of Staff Erskine Bowles were two years ago. They couldn’t get enough votes from the other members of their presidential commission to send the deal to Congress; Obama was lukewarm, too. The precise mix of tax cuts, spending cuts and loophole-closings is subject to negotiation, and that’s what should be taking place right now. Put Simpson-Bowles on the table, invite key leaders into the room, lock the doors and don’t let anyone out until it’s done. Spare us the drama. Guest Editorial The St. Louis Post-Dispatch DEAR DOCTOR K: I recently suffered through a miserable bout of food poisoning. How can I protect myself in the future? DEAR READER: There are few things less fun than food poisoning. I speak from experience, and not just experience as a doctor. Abdominal cramping, vomiting and diarrhea — clearly not an experience you want to repeat. Fortunately, there are many things you can do to protect yourself. Food poisoning commonly occurs when food or water is contaminated during improper cooking, handling or storage. The most common contaminants are bacteria, such as salmonella, Campylobacter and E. coli. The three things you have to do to prevent food poisoning are to select safe foods, store foods prop-
Groundhog Day: Middle East version In the film “Groundhog Day,” Bill Murray wakes up each morning and relives the previous day. A similar scenario is playing out in the Middle East between Israel and her enemies. The deadly “movie” always goes like this: Israel is shelled or attacked by terrorists groups, often called “militants” by the media, each one with the same goal: Israel’s elimination. After demonstrating considerable restraint of the kind that would never be tolerated by any other nation, Israel fires back. Suddenly, the world awakens from its indif ference.

erly and prepare foods safely. How do you do that? Select safe foods: — Buy foods before their expiration date. — Make certain that cans of food are not dented or bulging. A bulging can could indicate that the food inside is contaminated by a type of bacteria that produces gas.

World leaders, who said little when Israeli civilians were wounded and killed, now urge “restraint” by “both sides,” as if a moral equivalency exists between victim and predator. In the run-up to confrontation, it has been reported that Hamas placed weaponry among civilians, hoping that
— Avoid foods that contain raw eggs. Store foods properly: — Refrigerate or freeze perishables immediately. — Check your refrigerator and freezer to make sure they are set to the proper temperatures (41 F for the fridge, 0 F for the freezer). — Thaw food in the refrigerator. Thawing food at room temperature gives bacteria a chance to grow. Prepare foods safely: — Keep utensils and cooking surfaces clean. — Once you use a utensil to handle raw meat, clean it thoroughly before using it on cooked meat. — Don’t prepare raw meat and fish on the same surface that you use for other foods. — Wash your hands before and
when Israeli airstrikes started they could show photos of dead children, bringing condemnation on Israel. What’s more, according to Breitbart.com, “Hamas has a wellestablished pattern of faking civilian deaths in Gaza, even as it seeks civilian deaths in Israel.” American and foreign TV networks — particularly CNN and BBC — are then brought in to channel the Palestinian line, portraying Israel as the aggressor. Next comes the hand-wringing and suggestions that Israel must “do more” to, as George W. Bush said in his 2002 Road Map for Peace
after preparing food. — Rinse fruits and vegetables thoroughly. — Clean your cutting board with soap and hot water before and after each use. — Make sure all food is cooked thoroughly, especially poultry. Use a meat thermometer to check. — Serve foods immediately after cooking. When eating at a restaurant, order cautiously. Be wary of soft cheeses, raw seafood and anything that contains raw eggs. If you do get food poisoning, focus on preventing dehydration; you lose a lot of fluid through vomiting and diarrhea. You must drink fluids, even if you have trouble keeping them down. See DR.

speech, satisfy the “legitimate aspirations of the Palestinian people.” In the past when Israel has done more, such as releasing terrorists, or giving up land taken in war to buttress its security, Israel’s “do more” has brought it less: less security, less peace and less approval from a world that largely wishes it would disappear. The spineless United Nations urged “all concerned” to “exercise maximum restraint,” ignoring Israel’s considerable restraint while facing intolerable provoca-

A changing nation
Dear Editor: Since the election, I have been reading all the stuff put out by the naysayers and the prophets of gloom and doom. These people simply can’t or won’t accept reality! Reality one: The election is over. Obama is president. He won by an overwhelming majority of electoral votes and a comfortable majority of the popular vote. Reality two: The American people have spoken and they prefer Obama, not Romney. Reality three: The country is changing. White men are not the ruling demographic in this country. They make up about 30 percent of the voting electorate. Reality four: The voting power in this country now is overwhelmingly in the hands of Latinos, blacks, white women and people under 30. This is not a theory or an opinion. The exit polls of the recent election validated this fact, or reality, and any person or political party that does not acknowledge this is simply going to be left behind and wonder what happened. Reality five: The fastest growing voter block in this country is Latinos, blacks are second. Whites are declining in voter power. This is not good or bad, right or wrong. It is reality. The old adage “lead, follow or get out of the way” applies here. These naysayers and prophets of gloom and doom can’t lead because they are in the minority, they won’t follow because they put political ideology ahead of what is best for the country. That just leaves “get out of the way.” And that is exactly what they should do. Accept Obama and let him have a chance. He and the country deserve that much. Denouncing and degrading the president is “sour grapes” and is not what is best for the country. Standing on the outside and throwing rocks at those on the inside and in power is not the way to gain power. You gain power by accepting reality, admitting mis-

takes and learning from those mistakes, regrouping and winning the next election. Randle Easley Roswell
Turn to God for guidance
Dear Editor: The Lord will withhold no good thing from those who do what is right. Ps. 84:11 The Lord gives His people strength. Ps 29:11 Now all glory to God, Who is able, through His mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think. Eph. 3:20 Trust in the Lord and do good. Then you will live safely in the land and prosper. Ps 37:3 On election night, I watched boastful speeches from the victors in many of the contests ... I’m sure, smug and brash reporting will be all we hear from the media because they bet on, (and actively campaigned for) the winning horse ... I saw new candidates crowing about how they were going to “stick it to the rich” and about how soundly the people who believe that unborn children should not be executed for convenience, or for their fathers’ crimes, have been beaten at the polls ... sigh. These verses tell a different story. Our God reigns! We must continue to love our neighbors — even if they voted for the people who wage war against the unborn and biblical mandates for marriage and the family, or who would tax us all into the poorhouse. I believe the Lord allowed us to hear Obama conspiring with our enemy when he promised Russia’s envoy that he “would have much more flexibility after the election” for a reason. I believe we were shown the Benghazi horror of a purposely unprotected American embassy for a reason. I believe that we were told that the embassy was left unprotected by our president as a warning. We received the reports telling us that, because of our president’s
decisions, four Americans were brutalized and murdered as our president watched, and he not only did nothing; he used his authority to constrain others to do nothing. We know that our president repeatedly lied about the facts of the Benghazi attack, but we went to the polls and elected him. We sanctioned him to use his authority to leave us unprotected as well. I believe all these reports made it through the juggernaut of a media that has become the lapdog of these same people who hate us so that we cannot claim ignorance; but instead, we must live with the indictment that we chose rebellion, we chose lawlessness, we chose deceivers, we chose leadership who hates us and would use us and destroy us for their own ends. We chose leadership that has preferred to behave like potentates rather than servants of the people. If we think Michelle’s costly vacations were flagrant, we can expect more of the same and worse in the next four years. We chose to support a party that removed God and any support for Israel and a Jewish Jerusalem from their platform, a party that has championed the things that will destroy us, person by person, family by family, as lawlessness and rebellion and laziness and greed are increasingly empowered. There are lots of sad facts to draw from this election and the way we voted. One that stands out is the huge number of young people who voted to put Obama back in office. God help them! The election reporting revealed a deeply divided country. A divided, impoverished house cannot stand. Billy Graham said, “If God doesn’t judge America, He will have to apologize to Sodom and Gomorrah.” 9/11, Hurricane Katrina, and Hurricane Sandy were warnings. We’re in for it! But God’s Word and His promises stand. We can run to Him and be safe. His Word is eternal and will show us the way through the coming dark times. Shelley Brookes Roswell

Today is Wednesday, Nov. 21, the 326th day of 2012. There are 40 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight On Nov. 21, 1942, the Alaska Highway, also known as the Alcan Highway, was formally opened at Soldier’s Summit in the Yukon Territory.

tions. And so the process replays. Ber nard Lewis, the renowned scholar and expert on the history of Islam, was recently aboard a Post-Election Cruise sponsored by National Review magazine, as was I. Lewis noted that the Cold War featured assured “mutual destruction,” which served as a deterrent for both the United States and the Soviet Union from using their nuclear weapons against each other. Lewis said for Islamic nations like Iran (which sponsors Hamas in Gaza), “MAD is not a deterrent, but an inducement.” That’s because, he said, the Iranian regime believes in the apocalyptic end of days in which the 12th Imam — the Islamic “messiah” — will emerge in the midst of a nuclear war with Israel and “save” humanity with Islam the surviving religion. Lewis argues for regime change in Iran, but urges the West to be cautious in the way it goes about promoting it. Iran, he said, is a nation with a long and proud history. He believes the West must not “give Iran a patriotic excuse” it could use to ignite nationalist passions. Young Iranians “hate their rulers,” Lewis said, and the message from the West, which should be conveyed to them via social media, should affirm Iran’s ancient history and Persian roots. That history, he believes,

can be used to overcome the religious fanatics now running the country. Lewis, who has seen a lot in his nearly 100 years, believes the Middle East will become less important over time. The decline of Arab and Islamic nations, he thinks, will continue as the world discovers new sources for fossil fuels and alternatives to oil, the primary product these countries supply to the world. As income from oil declines, Lewis believes increased migration, mostly to Europe, but also to the United States, risks changing Western cultures. That could mean that Islamic domination could be achieved through immigration, not war. In the meantime, Israel is faced with an existential threat, partially of its own making. I argued against the unilateral ceding of Gaza to the Palestinians. It didn’t take a prophet to foresee terrorist groups using Gaza to launch attacks against Israeli civilians. If Israel invades Gaza again, there will be more pictures of dead civilians. But even if a ground effort is successful and Hamas is partially or entirely neutralized, that won’t solve the problem. New terrorists will arrive. The cycle of war will repeat. It’s a real-life “Groundhog Day.” (Write to Cal Thomas at: Tribune Media Services, 2225 Kenmore Ave., Suite 114, Buffalo, N.Y. 14207.

Workshop may help vet services head in right direction Last Wednesdayâ€™s community outreach workshop conducted by Nancy Dailey, Christopher Turner and Deanna Durand from the Veterans Rural Health Resource Center -Western Region was quite exceptional. To quote Daileyâ€™s comment to RDR reporter Ilissa Gilmore, â€œThe intent of the event was to reach out to a rural community specifically because most people are puzzled as to where to start and where to go to address needs. One of the things that we want to do is maximize the potential of everyone working with veterans," she said, noting that 41 percent of veterans live in rural areas. Dailey is deputy director/ acting director, Veterans Rural Health Resource Center -Western Region, VHA Office of Rural Health, and is uniquely qualified to handle the top spot for rural resources. Beside having an
extensive nursing and administrative background (masterâ€™s degree in nursing), she reports directly to Washington, D.C., Headquarters of Veterans Affairs. Whereas VA regional directors are often â€œtoo close to the forest to see the trees,â€? Director Dailey has a vantage point to view operations from the bottomup and inside-out.
Daily point-blank asked me what I saw as the three most critical things/areas the VA needed to improve, change or add in the VAâ€™s rural care delivery system in rural New Mexico. Simply stated, I responded with: 1) We need local contracted medical care to avoid the excruciating seven hour round-trip drive to Albuquerque. 2) We need some type of urgent care service, since the Artesia communitybased outpatient care clinic (CBOC) did not provide walkin or emergency care. Non-
VA urgent or emergency care may be at veteranâ€™s own expense (after the fact). 3) Support from the VA for our local veteran medical transportation service (especially since local private cabs and private medical transportation services are being paid, for the same service). 4) (ok, I squeezed in an extra) Any assistance VA could give the veterans (Harry McGraw and Bert Eldridge) trying to establish a local veterans cemetery on (land donated) for that cause. I got the distinct feeling this VA official wasnâ€™t going to just say, â€œThank you for
your requests. Give us your name and numberâ€” weâ€™ll get back to you,â€? and then nothing else happens. Dailey has genuine feelings for veterans and a drive that leads you to believe she will get things done!
Community agencies within Chaves County were well represented in this workshop. Both state and federal VA officials were also in attendance to share information with attendees.

Centennial artist brings special year to a close VANESSA KAHIN VISTAS EDITOR
It took 100 years for New Mexico’s beautiful landscape to become what it is today—a collage of cultures, languages, Old West, Old Mexico, new dreams and new aspirations. When the Roswell Artistin-Residence program set out to find a Centennial Artist, the challenge was to choose someone who has not only breathed and lived New Mexico’s culture and history; but also someone who can appreciate the mythology and dreamlike quality of the state’s land. Enter painter Jerry West, whose residency with the RAiR program of ficially began January. 2012, but who started mingling with—and painting—the people of Roswell as early as the summer of 2011. On Friday, West’s centennial exhibition, titled “A Trip to Roswell, New Mexico: Mem-
ory, Dream and Myth” opened at the Roswell Museum and Art Center. Born and raised in Santa Fe, West graduated from Santa Fe High School and completed undergraduate work in science and liberal arts at Colorado State University in Fort Collins. He then attended the University of New Mexico, where he completed graduate work in biology. In 1959, West retur ned to Santa Fe High—this time as a faculty member teaching biology and history. But the artistic inclination was already present in West’s genes. His father, Hal West, was also an artist; a New Mexico transplant originally from Oklahoma. “My dad was an artist, a struggling artist,” West recalled. During The Great Depression, West’s father was hired as an artist for the Works Progress Administration—part of Pres.
Franklin D. Roosevelt’s New Deal. The WPA encouraged employment through the construction or improvement of public spaces. In the mid 1960s, West decided to take the artist occupation—which he said he had taken for granted, as it was a world he had grown up in—and give it a more serious approach. He retur ned to school, this time, New Mexico Highlands University in Las Vegas. There, West completed graduate work in painting and printmaking. West also focused more on construction. In Santa Fe, he was free to incorporate what he called “traditional materials,” such as adobe bricks, in the homes he built. “We loved adobe, and the craft that went along with it,” West said. Eventually, however, West pulled away from construction to devote more time to his art. He
received a number of artistin-residence opportunities, sharing his art and making large murals with young school students and senior citizens alike. West brought art to prisoners at the New Mexico State Penitentiary, where he also got to create his signature large murals. It was while doing art in public spaces that West was asked to do a mural for Santa Fe’s City Hall—built on top of what was once the location of Santa Fe High School. To create the piece, West was inspired by a dream he had of his times at Santa Fe High, and of one important character he met during his time there—Amarante Tapia, the school’s janitor. “I was in the old schoolhouse,” West said. “In that old red brick building, (Tapia) swept the floor.” Tapia swept the dirt and dust to the street, then all the way to Santa Fe’s plaza.
delightful fun at her demise, and thoroughly enjoyed her return to familiar aspects of her life. Full of fun and good humor, she was thoroughly likeable. Through abrupt switches of costume parts, sweaters, shawls and hats, the actress brought to life a lady whose art was uniquely personal and valid to her, whether anyone else understood it or not. She moved quickly from the floor, up a ladder, lying on a chaise, but always with youthful enthusiasm. “Don’t paint a mountain, paint how the mountain makes you FEEL!” So her artistic skill mingled with her deep feeling for beauty.
Santa Fe. She taught art at various schools, but her lack of patience with officials who insisted that she teach by a textbook soon brought her to another lifestyle. She fell in love with the rogue Alfred Stieglitz, an artistic photographer, who was a determined and forceful man, whom she fought as much as loved. His playboy tendencies she accepted, or endured. She termed these as a display of his “physical side”—but his soul, his heart, was what she loved and valued. Her strength of character and determination brought about an agreement with Stieglitz for one full year of only painting for her—no other chores or support would be expected. It was a productive year of sheer joy for O’Keeffe.
The artist found peace— great and wonderful peace— in New Mexico, where the skies, sunsets, and sagebrush enchanted her. However, she often returned to New York City and the location of the Stieglitz gallery on Fifth Avenue. Never one to obey convention, she lived with Stieglitz some eight years prior to their marriage. She always seemed to be “swimming upstream,” against the mores of the early 20th century.
O’Keeffe returns to life on RCLT stage BY VONNIE GOSS GUEST WRITER
Carolyn Wickwire, professional actress of Dallas’ Flower and Bone Productions Inc., managed to return to life the longdeceased, consummate artist of the Southwest, Georgia O’Keeffe. On the almost bare stage of the Roswell Community Little Theatre, Wickwire brought strength and energy to a solo performance of a fulllength play, written by Lucinda McDermott and performed through special permission of Playscripts, Inc. The performance was scheduled at this time in honor of the 125th anniversary of O’Keeffe’s birthday, Nov. 15, 1887. Wickwire was enchanting as O’Keeffe, who poked
A complex and fascinating person, O’Keeffe astounded the art community wherever she went—whether New York, South Carolina, or

Roswell Daily Record
In a pied-piper style, the school’s students followed him out, as if in a procession. “The dream was such an interesting piece,” West noted. “I thought it would work as a mural. ... I thought (the dream) was a great metaphor for exploring the ... history of Santa Fe.” The eventual work included a procession of characters that are part of Santa Fe’s history. Many of West’s works are what he calls “psychological landscapes,” art inspired by dream imagery. Like dreams, there is always an element of real life in his paintings, as well as an element of visual metaphor. In his RAiR exhibition, there are paintings that depict easily identifiable places—such as Roswell neighborhoods and the sinkholes of Bottomless Lakes State Park. But adding to the magic of the
scenery is the dream imagery. In one painting, “Flight Over Roswell,” West is literally flying over Roswell with his brother, Archie. The men are wearing wings. The painting is based on a dream West had in the late 1970s.
“My brother and I were launched by my dad, and we flew,” West recalled of the dream. When painting the act of flying over Roswell, West was met with the challenge of painting the wings—an element of the painting he had to invent.
“That’s one of the magic things about art,” West said of having to invent the wings strapped onto his ar ms in the painting. “Nobody knew what Jesus Christ looked like. It all had to be invented by artists.”
West’s centennial exhibition will be at the RMAC until Feb. 10, 2013.

about how the U.S. manages the 1,450-mile river, which runs from the Rocky Mountains to Mexico. In 2001, U.S. states established rules on how to divide surpluses but set aside nothing for Mexico. Several years later, the U.S. government lined a border canal in Califor nia with concrete to prevent water from seeping through the dirt into Mexican farms. “We have chosen collaboration over conflict, we

this problem by diplomatic means, we prefer that. But if not, then I am sure you will understand that Israel will have to take whatever actions are necessary to defend its people,” Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said at a latenight meeting with visiting Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton. Clinton was hastily dispatched to the region by President Barack Obama to join a high-profile group of world leaders working to halt the violence. Standing alongside the Israeli leader, Clinton indicated it could take some time to iron out an agreement. Clinton expressed sorrow for the heavy loss of life on both sides, but called for the Palestinian rocket attacks on Israel to end and stressed that the American commitment to Israel’s security is “rock solid.” Israel launched the offensive on Nov. 14 in a bid to end months of rock-

hand. He made his case clearly during a Bangkok news conference: “It’s worked for us for over 200 years now, and I think it’s going to work for Thailand and it’s going to work for this entire region,” he said. “And the alternative, I think, is a false hope that, over time, I think erodes and collapses under the weight of people whose aspirations are not being met.” Establishing a bigger, more influential presence in the Asia-Pacific region has long been an Obama objective, a goal driven by 21st century geopolitical considerations and by the Hawaiian-born president’s own self-identity as the
have chosen cooperation and consensus over discord,” said U.S. Interior Secretary Ken Salazar, who called the new pact the most important international accord on the Colorado River since the 1944 treaty. Mexico will begin to surrender some of its Colorado River allotment when Lake Mead drops to 1,075 feet above sea level and begin to reap surpluses when it rises to 1,145 feet. Mexico will be allowed to store up to 250,000 acre-feet of water in the reservoir and draw on nearly all of those
reserves whenever needed. The agreement expires in five years and is being billed as a trial run, potentially making it more palatable in Mexico. “These are big political steps for Mexico to take,” said Jeffrey Kightlinger, general manager of the Metropolitan Water District of Souther n Califor nia, which will buy some of Mexico’s water. “Chances are we won’t have a surplus and we won’t have a shortage but, if we do, we’ll have the guidelines in place on how we’re going to handle it.”
ing partner” in a cease-fire agreement. But as the talks stretched into the evening, it became clear that a deal remained a ways off. Hamas officials refused to discuss the remaining sticking points. Israeli media quoted Defense Minister Ehud Barak as telling a closed meeting that Israel wanted
a 24-hour test period of no rocket fire to see if Hamas could enforce a truce. Clinton was also scheduled to meet with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas in the West Bank and Egyptian leaders in Cairo today. The U.S. considers Hamas, which has killed hundreds of Israelis in suicide and other
attacks, to be a terror group and does not meet with its of ficials. The Obama administration blames Hamas for the latest eruption of violence and says Israel has the right to defend itself. At the same time, it has warned against a ground invasion, saying it could send casualties spiraling.
first Pacific president. Just by making the trip — and by making it his first after his re-election — Obama made a point about the importance the U.S. attaches to the region. He was greeted by large crowds chanting his name in Thailand and in Myanmar, a country less than two years removed from a repressive military dictatorship where such assemblies were long forbidden. The English-language Myanmar Times newspaper heralded the arrival of “O-Bur ma” on its front page, while Thai newspapers praised his apparent interest in the native brand of Buddhism following his monastery visit. The reception was more muted in neighboring Cambodia, a staunch ally of China that pointedly
displayed a sign at the presidential palace welcoming Chinese premier Wen Jiabao but nothing for Obama. Still, there was a message for Asia in Obama’s mere presence. The president was attending an annual summit of Southeast Asian leaders in Phnom Penh, yet another indication of U.S. intentions to play a bigger role in the region. The trip marked the first time a U.S. president had visited Myanmar and Cambodia. For decades, Myanmar, despite its alluring pagodas and verdant countryside, was an international outcast with a repressive military junta accused of gross human rights abuses. But last year it began to shift toward democracy, and Obama went there to welcome the change and
encourage more. His motorcade sped to the lakeside home of opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi, the Nobel Peace Prize winner who spent the better part of 20 years under house arrest. He embraced her and praised her as an “icon of democracy.” Obama’s aides hoped that image would dominate back in the United States, but news events and coverage didn’t go quite as planned. Hostilities in Israel and Gaza overshadowed the president’s trip. He spent every day monitoring developments. Monday night he was on the phone until 2:30 from Phnom Penh, calling Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu once and Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi twice.
By Tuesday morning he had dispatched Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, who had been traveling with him in Southeast Asia, to the Mideast to engage directly in Jerusalem and Cairo. And he called Morsi again from Air Force One on the way home. Efforts to break a stalemate with Congress over a deficit-reduction package also dogged him, even as congressional and White House staf fs worked to frame details that Obama and legislative leaders could begin negotiating next week. After the monk surprised him by wishing him well on the fiscal cliff at the Wat Pho monastery, Obama still could not escape it, facing a question about it during his Thailand press conference.
No problem, the Americans said.

cultural Imperial Irrigation District, the largest single recipient of Colorado River water, refused to sign the agreement because it felt it should have been allowed to buy some of the water from Mexico. U.S. officials said they hoped to address those concerns. “This is such a historic arrangement that I think, at the end of the day, it’s going to be dif ficult for Imperial not to sign on,” Salazar said. The river is also a major source of water for Colorado, New Mexico, Utah and Wyoming.
border with Egypt. It also wants international guarantees that Hamas will not rearm or use Egypt’s Sinai region, which abuts both Gaza and southern Israel, to attack Israelis. Hamas wants Israel to halt all attacks on Gaza and lift tight restrictions on trade and movement in and out of the territory that have been in place since Hamas seized Gaza by force in 2007. Israel has rejected such demands in the past. Egypt’s new Islamist government is expected to play a key role in maintaining a deal. The crisis has thrust Egypt’s president, Mohammed Morsi, into the spotlight as he plays a difficult balancing act. Morsi belongs to the Muslim Brotherhood, Hamas’ parent movement, and clearly sympathizes with the Islamic militant group. At the same time, he relies heavily on U.S. aid and is trying to preserve a historic peace agreement with Israel. Netanyahu also said his country would be a “will-

Five Israelis have been killed by rocket fire, including a soldier and a civilian contractor on Tuesday. With Israel massing thousands of ground troops on the Gaza border, diplomats raced throughout the region in search of a formula to halt the fighting. In a meeting with Netanyahu, U.N. chief Ban condemned Ki-moon Palestinian rocket attacks, but urged Israel to show “maximum restraint.” Israel demands an end to rocket fire from Gaza and a halt to weapons smuggling into Gaza through tunnels under the

In 2007, facing an eightyear drought, California, Arizona and Nevada agreed on how much each state should sacrifice during shortages on the river. That same year, the U.S. and Mexico promised to work on ways to jointly address shortages. The negotiations gained a sense of urgency for Mexico in 2010 after a magnitude7.2 earthquake damaged canals and other infrastructure, forcing it to store water temporarily in Lake Mead. “No matter how sacred the treaty is, and it is, the

Guardianship extended for ‘Modern Family’ star
LOS ANGELES (AP) — A judge determined Tuesday that teen actress Ariel Winter’s mother should not regain custody of the “Modern Family” star and that the 14-year -old should remain in her sister’s care for the next several weeks. Superior Court Judge Michael Levanas issued the ruling after considering a report by child protective investigators that was critical of Winter’s mother, Chrisoula Workman. The report found there was evidence of emotional abuse toward Winter, Levanas said, and the agency planned to step in and take its own action if Winter did not remain in a guardianship. The ruling came more than six weeks after Workman was temporarily

stripped of custody amid allegations she had been physically and emotionally abusive to Winter. Levanas said the investigators’ report found that claims of physical abuse were inconclusive, but an attorney for Winter’s sister said they could be proven in a subsequent report. The judge set a Dec. 12 trial date to deter mine whether Winter should be placed in a per manent guardianship. Winter has been under the care of her sister, Shanelle Gray, since early October. Levanas said that if the case remains in his courtroom, he will make sure the family works toward reconciliation. “I guarantee if it stays here, it will get better,” the judge said. He said the Congratulations to our Winner Betti Terry of Roswell! She sent in her recipe Mexican/New Mexican Lasagna and won the recipe contest.
Department of Children and Family Services could still choose to file its own case, which would remove it from his jurisdiction. Winter’s mother has denied all accusations that
she was abusive to her daughter. Winter’s father, Glenn Workman, also filed an objection to the guardianship late Monday, stating he wants a better relation-
ship with his daughter and would be willing to care for her. Levanas said Workman’s filing was in conflict with statements he gave to investigators and that he
could not give him custody of the young actress. He also noted that Glenn Workman described his estranged wife to investigators as “controlling and driven.”

There’s still a lot to be thankful for in sports Roswell Daily Record
TIM DAHLBERG AP SPORTS COLUMNIST
The bad stuff is easy. You read about it almost every day; hear it discussed endlessly by the talking heads on radio and television. But if sports is a microcosm of society — and it is — then there’s a lot of good going on, too. And, as we celebrate Thanksgiving, here are some things to be thankful for this year that have

BRIEFS TAYLOR BREAKS NCAA SCORING MARK WITH 138
GRINNELL, Iowa (AP) — Jack Taylor scored 138 points to shatter the NCAA scoring record in Division III Grinnell’s 179-104 victory over Faith Baptist Bible on Tuesday night. Taylor made 27 of 71 3point attempts, was 52 of 108 overall from the field and added seven free throws on 10 attempts in 36 minutes. “It felt like anything I tossed up was going in,” said Taylor, a 5-foot-10 sophomore guard from Black River Falls, Wis. Rio Grande’s Bevo Francis held the NCAA scoring record with 113 points against Hillsdale in 1954. In 1953, Francis had 116 against Ashland Junior College. Frank Selvy is the only other player to reach triple figures, scoring 100 points for Division I Furman against Newberry in 1954.
JEFF TEDFORD OUT AT CAL
BERKELEY, Calif. (AP) — California has fired coach Jeff Tedford after his worst season in 11 years with the Golden Bears. Athletic director Sandy Barbour announced the move Tuesday, saying Tedford served the school admirably. Tedford engineered an impressive turnaround at Cal after taking over a onewin team following the 2001 season. He won a schoolrecord 82 games and a share of a conference title but ended his tenure with a mediocre run. The Bears lost their final five games this season, finishing 3-9 for their worst mark under Tedford. Tedford is still owed $6.9 million on his contract. CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Danica Patrick said Tuesday she and her husband are divorcing after seven years of marriage. Patrick announced the split with Paul Hospenthal on her Facebook page. She said the two have amicably decided to end their marriage. Hospenthal is a physical therapist who met Patrick while treating her for a nonracing injury. The two were married in 2005, and he is 17 years older than the 30year-old NASCAR driver. Patrick just completed her first full season in NASCAR, running the full Nationwide schedule and 10 Sprint Cup Series races.

Coyotes win debut Local Briefs
RUIDOSO — Roswell opened the 2012-13 season on Tuesday with a 53-point throttling of Ruidoso. The Coyotes, behind 28 points from Cesar Nava, put the game out of reach early and coasted to a 9340 win over the Warriors. Ruidoso jumped ahead 11-6 early in the first quarter, but Roswell scored the next 21 to take the lead for good. The Coyotes outscored the Warriors 26-2 over the remainder of the first and led 32-13 going to the second. “We started slow and they had us down 11-6, but we went on a 21-0 run and came out strong after that,” said Roswell coach
Welcome to the Big Ten
PISCATAWAY, N.J. (AP) — As the Big East was being picked apart, Rutgers was looking for a way out and a new place to show off a football program that has been resurrected in the past decade. Not only did Rutgers find that escape hatch, the Scarlet Knights ended up in one of the most desirable neighborhoods in college sports. Rutgers joined the Big Ten on Tuesday, leaving the Big East behind and cashing in on the school’s investment in a football team that only 10 years ago seemed incapable of competing at the highest level. The move follows Maryland’s announcement a day earlier that it was heading to the Big Ten in 2014. The additions give the Big Ten 14 schools and a presence in lucrative East See WELCOME, Page B3

IRVING, Texas (AP) — Great one game. Hard to find the next. A scene at the mall one year. Trouble with the law the next. Wide receiver Dez Bryant is the riddle many had feared when character issues allowed the Cowboys to take one of the best players in the 2010 draft late in the first round. Don’t look now, but Bryant has multiple 100yard receiving games for the first time as a pro, and is coming off a career-high 145 yards and a critical fourthquarter touchdown against Cleveland. Barring injury or another twist to the story, he’ll probably have his first 1,000-yard season. Now is as good a time as any to ask whether Bryant is finally arriving in his third season, though not even the ultimate Cowboys optimist is ready to give a definitive answer. “The risk here is that he’s in the glaring spotlight of being on the field and off the field for the Cowboys,” owner Jerry Jones said. “So I’m reluctant that, we all are, to say that he’s doing good. Dez is doing better.” Forget the numbers for a See DEZ, Page B3

Texans still atop AP Pro32, 49ers move to second NEW YORK (AP) — Just win, Houston. The Texans did exactly that Sunday, rallying for a 43-37 overtime victory over the lowly Jacksonville Jaguars to retain the top spot in the AP Pro32 NFL power rankings. Houston (9-1) received nine first-place votes and 346 points Tuesday from 11 of the 12 media members on The Associated Press panel reporting their ballots. The San Francisco 49ers moved up two places to second following a 32-7 rout of the Chicago Bears on Monday night. The 49ers got one first-place vote and 326 points, while the New England Patriots had the other first-place vote and are seventh.

Despite the close call against the Jaguars, all but two votes stuck with the Texans. “At some point during the season, every good team deserves a mulligan for performing poorly against a weaker opponent,” Foxsports.com’s Alex Marvez said. “A win is a win, particularly in the division,” said Rich Gannon of CBS Sports/SiriusXM NFL Radio. Added Dan Pompei of the Chicago Tribune: “They had a letdown game and got away with it. That’s a sign of a good team.” ESPN’s Chris Berman was so impressed with the Patriots’ 59-24 romp over the Indianapolis Colts, he moved them to first from sixth. “Could have done without that 59th point,” said Berman, a refer-

Atlanta slipped to third, with Denver, Green Bay and Baltimore rounding out the top six. After a fifth straight win, Peyton Manning has his Broncos moving higher and higher in the rankings. “Broncos may be most complete team in the AFC, even without Willis McGahee,” Clark Judge of CBSSports.com said. “Remember, Peyton Manning took the Colts to a Super Bowl with the 32ndranked running game.” The Bears, playing without injured quarterback Jay Cutler, took the biggest tumble of the week — five positions to eighth.
“Jay Cutler can’t get back soon enough, but it’s the defensive meltdown in San Francisco that should have Lovie Smith just as concerned,” said Bob Glauber of Newsday. Two New York teams — the Jets and Buffalo Bills — had the biggest improvement (five spots) following wins. The Jets are 21st, the Bills 22nd.

will be a cleaner and better place because of it. BROOKLYN REBORN: No, the Dodgers aren’t returning. Suddenly, though, Brooklyn is a sports town again, thanks to a new, $1 billion arena and a Russian billionaire who parked his basketball team there. The New York Islanders will also be moving there in 2015, assuming, of course, that the NHL lockout is resolved by then. BRITISH INVASION: Bradley Wiggins became the first Briton to win the Tour de France, while Andy Murray became the first British man to claim a tennis major in 76 years when he won the U.S. Open. Perennial also-rans, the British had a spectacular sporting summer the country will never forget, including a London Olympics that surpassed expectations at every turn. VIN SCULLY: He would be a national treasure, but the people of Los Angeles like to claim him as their own. For more than 60 years, Scully has broadcast the Dodgers, and his gift to the new Dodger owners was the announcement that he will come back for at least one more year at the age of 85, calling games as he always does, solo in the announcer’s booth. In
the interests of full disclosures, I was one of those kids in LA who went to sleep at night with a transistor radio underneath my pillow, growing up listening to Vinny. RORY TIME: For years, golf fans waited for a rival to the great Tiger Woods, only to be disappointed by every David Duval who came along. Rory McIlroy is the antiTiger, an accessible and grounded superstar from the town of Holywood in Northern Ireland who hits the ball incredible distances, all with an inner joy that Woods will never have. McIlroy has his own reason to be thankful, with tennis star Caroline Wozniacki as his constant companion. BOXING: Even if you don’t like the sport, you have to love the stories. Johnathon Banks learned everything he knew about boxing from Emanuel Steward, so much so that when Steward died a few weeks ago, Banks took over as trainer of heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko. He was in Klitschko’s corner in Germany for his win over Mariusz Wach and then flew to Detroit for a memorial service for Steward. A few days later he was in Atlantic City, where he revived his own career with a shocking knockout win Saturday night over Seth Mitchell. That could put him in line for a title shot against, you guessed it, Klitschko, the man he trains. Only in boxing. “All I can think is how
roster and raised expectations the Blue Jays will make the playoffs for the first time since winning their second consecutive World Series in 1993. Only Kansas City and Pittsburgh have longer playoff droughts. “I said ‘Are you seriBeeston ous?’” recalled. “Forget about him being an intellectual, he’s a baseball guy. And those are the guys you really want in your organization.” Gibbons managed Toronto 2004-08 and had a 305-305 record, making him the thirdwinningest manager in franchise history. He succeeds John Farrell, who spurned Toronto for his dream managing job in Boston. Gibbons takes over a very different team from the one Farrell managed. The surprise announcement came a day after the Blue Jays completed the trade to acquire All-Star shortstop Jose Reyes and pitchers Josh Johnson and Mark Buehrle from Miami. Toronto agreed to the trade last week and Commissioner Bud Selig approved it Monday. The Blue Jays, extraordinarily busy in this offseason, also finalized a $16 million, two-year contract with free agent outfielder Melky Cabrera. Gibbons said he never imagined he’d be hired by Toronto again. “Who wouldn’t want to be here?” Gibbons said. “The front office has put together a legitimate contendingtype team.” Gibbons most recently managed the San Antonio Missions of the Double-A Texas League in the San Diego Padres’ organization last season. He also had three seasons as the Kansas City Royals’ bench coach. Gibbons joined the Blue Jays’ coaching staff in 2002 as a bullpen catcher and was promoted midseason to first base coach. He served in that capacity until replacing Carlos Tosca in 2004. Before joining the Blue Jays the first time, Gibbons spent 11 seasons working with the New York Mets.
moment. The day after a potential resolution was announced in a domestic dispute with his mother, Bryant all but invited reporters to his locker so he could declare himself ready to put the “focus on football” — a phrase he repeated so often it made him laugh. Laughter of the right sort has been in short supply around Bryant most of his young pro career. Three days later, he was there when Tony Romo needed him late in the game, matching the steady and reliable Jason Witten with three catches in the fourth quarter, including a 28-yard score that put Dallas ahead, and adding two more in overtime in the 2320 Dallas win. Romo ended up throwing his way 15 times, and Bryant had 12 catches. Afterward, Bryant was already talking about trying

grateful I am for Emanuel Steward,” Banks said. LABOR PEACE: OK, the NHL is in lockout mode, and the prospect of another lost season is a gut check to hockey fans everywhere. But there will be no lost games in the NFL for much of the next decade, the NBA has a new longterm deal and the only thing owners and players in baseball are worried about is how many zeroes the new contracts have. And, of course, there are decent referees on the field again in the NFL, even if they do happen to swear at times. CONCUSSIONS: Good things are happening in the fight against the once silent epidemic of concussions in sports. Brains are being analyzed, millions of dollars are being poured into research, and there’s an awareness about the danger of hits to the head that could save lives everywhere from your child’s soccer field to the stadiums of the NFL. Unfortunately, it’s too late for thousands of former players who are paying for the blows to their head every day of their lives — something the NFL refuses to own up to. DEATH OF THE BCS: Our long national nightmare is almost over. The Bowl Championship Series is, for all intents and purposes, dead, killed off by a fan revolt at the age of 16. It will be replaced in 2014 by a four-team playoff that, while not
to do it again in Thursday’s Thanksgiving game against Washington. “With a win, it feels good,” Bryant said. “Just got to put it behind me and get ready for Washington.” The previous two games at Cowboys Stadium, Bryant cost Romo an interception each time by not doing what his quarterback thought he would. Not that this time. “He ran good routes, he was at his right depth and you see the kind of player he can be when he plays football at the level that he can,” Romo said. “That’s exciting to see his work ethic paying off.” Few have questioned how hard Bryant works in practice, but there have always been questions about how much time he spent with the playbook. The issue of judgment was even larger, mostly because the Cowboys knew it could be. He lost most of his final college season at Oklahoma State when the NCAA sus-
Coast markets. Rutgers announced its decision Tuesday at a campus news conference attended by Big Ten Commissioner Jim Delany, Rutgers President Robert Barchi and athletic director Tim Pernetti. “The Big Ten is really where Rutgers belongs,” Barchi said. “This is not just a good fit for us athletically, it’s a good fit for us academically and as an institution.” Rutgers has been competing in the Big East since 1991. But the league has been torn up by conference realignment, losing three key members last year. Pernetti had insisted all along that Rutgers would land on its feet, that being a member of the prestigious American Association of Universities and residing in the largest media market in the country would ensure the school wouldn’t be cast aside as the landscape of college sports changed.
Wednesday, November 21, 2012 perfect, will help legitimize the national championship game. Meanwhile, a possible Notre Dame against Alabama title game this season could be one of the biggest ever. OPPORTUNITIES: Forty years ago this summer, Congress passed and President Nixon signed into law a bill that changed sports forever. Title IX opened up opportunities for women to play sports that were once unimaginable, and it’s a gift that will keep on giving for generations to come. When Title IX was enacted, fewer than 30,000 female students participated in sports in colleges and universities, a number that has now increased nearly six-fold. Some 3 million girls participate in high school athletics today, 10 times the number who played sports in 1972. Women may never make big breakthroughs in professional sports, but the resources now devoted to female sports means your daughters and granddaughters can dream of doing things in sports they could never do before. SPORTS EXTRA: You pay for it more than you realize, every time the cable or satellite bill is due. The Yankees cost you money, and so do the Knicks. There are so many new sports networks popping up that each want their share of the pie that the bill will keep going up until customers finally revolt. What you once got for free
pended him after he lied about having dinner with former NFL cornerback Deion Sanders. He was criticized for missing team meetings and failing to bring the right shoes to his pro timing day. Draft day was rough, too, because his name kept falling after he was projected as a top 10 pick. Despair turned to delight when the kid from East Texas was taken by the Cowboys at No. 24. His first season in Dallas was uneventful — on the field, too. He missed four games and finished with just 561 yards even though he had a 100-yard game. Then the trouble started. He was kicked out of an upscale Dallas mall in early 2011 for wearing his pants too low, and a week later, lawsuits surfaced alleging that he had nearly $1 million in unpaid bills from jewelry and game tickets, mostly racked up before he signed a five-year contract with $8.3 million in guaranteed money.
The Scarlet Knights landed in the best possible spot. A spot that seemed unthinkable a decade ago when Rutgers football was a Big East cellar-dweller. “It’s a transformative day for Rutgers University, and transformative in so many ways,” Pernetti said. “This is about collaboration at every level, the perspective the Big Ten institutions have, the balance between academics and athletics, proving over decades and decades that athletics at the highest level and academics at the highest level can coexist. It’s the perfect place for Rutgers.” Rutgers left its entry date ambiguous, though clearly the Big Ten and the school would like it to line up with Maryland. The Big East requires 27 months’ notification for departing members. The Scarlet Knights will have to negotiate a deal with the Big East to leave early, the way Pittsburgh, Syracuse and West Virginia have done. “Although we are disappointed that Rutgers has decided to leave the Big East Conference, we wish
now costs a lot, but what a bargain it really is. The variety of sports on television is astonishing, even more so to the generations that grew up before ESPN, when watching sports meant a few football games and Saturday’s baseball game of the week — and having to get up to turn the channel to watch it. We’re living in a world where the options for sports fans are greater than ever. We can watch basketball on the decks of aircraft carriers, hockey on the infield of old baseball parks, and the NFL from soccer stadiums in London. Instead of being parked in front of a TV we can feed our seemingly insatiable sports fix on laptops, tablets and even smartphones. If that’s not enough it’s easier than ever to have a little something riding on the game, whether in form of a wager or a fantasy team payout. Still there’s nothing like a Saturday morning spent watching the kids play soccer or, at my house, a Thanksgiving Day street football game with relatives of all ages. Even in an era of amazing technology, there’s room at the local playground for a pickup game of hoops, and grass at the park to toss a baseball around. So enjoy the turkey and the NFL on TV as well. Save room for the pumpkin pie, and yet another game to feast your eyes on. There’s a lot to be thankful for. firstname.lastname@example.org
Another spotty season on the field in 2011 was followed by the most serious incident, this one involving his arrest last summer. According to an affidavit filed by police in the Dallas suburb of DeSoto, Bryant struck his mother, Angela Bryant, in the face with a ball cap and grabbed her T-shirt. Bryant’s mom didn’t want to press charges, and prosecutors announced a deal last week that could lead to the dismissal of a misdemeanor family violence charge if Bryant isn’t arrested and regularly attends anger management counseling for the next year. Witten isn’t sure a resolution of the case is the reason Bryant seems ready to be the Cowboys’ No. 1 receiver. He just knows it’s looking that way, particularly after Bryant helped beat the Browns with so many catches on shorter routes, not usually his strength. “That’s the other part of
them well,” Big East Commissioner Mike Aresco said in a statement. In an interview later, Aresco said that the conference would survive. “We’ll move judiciously to replace Rutgers, but we had already changed from the small, Northeast model,” he said. “We’re a national conference now. We became a bigger and better football conference.” The Big East is trying to rebuild itself as a 12-team football league next season, with the addition of Boise State and five other schools. Now the conference is again on the defensive. Connecticut or Louisville could be next to go with the ACC looking to replace Maryland. Aresco said he had been in touch with the newcomers and they were still on board. He declined to speculate on other members leaving. Whenever Rutgers enters the Big Ten, it will be the culmination of one of the most remarkable turnarounds in college sports. In 2002, the Scarlet Knights football team went 1-11 under secondyear coach Greg Schiano. The team, however, steadily
being a receiver,” Witten said. “He understands, ‘Hey, I’m a go-to guy.’ And you know that he wants to be really, really good.” Bryant is still having some of those ill-advised moments, like a play against Cleveland where he easily could have run for a first down and inexplicably stepped out of bounds a yard short when defenders closed in. Afterward, he acknowledged he wasn’t sure where the first-down marker was, although he was also trying to follow the advice of coaches not to always take on tacklers. Three weeks ago, he followed his second 100-yard game of the season with one catch in a big Sunday night game at Atlanta. “I’m hoping he disappears,” Redskins coach Mike Shanahan said with a laugh. “No, he’s a tremendous athlete. I think everybody knows that.” The question is whether he can be that go-to guy — all the time.
improved as the university made the huge financial commitment necessary to support major college football. Facilities were upgraded, the oncampus stadium was expanded and as Schiano started to win, his salary began to rise into the millions. The expanded and renovated stadium cost $102 million. Schiano left for the NFL last year, and Rutgers hired longtime assistant Kyle Flood, who has the Scarlet Knights poised to take make another big step. No. 21 Rutgers (91) is in position to win its first Big East championship and go to a BCS game for the first time. In the Big Ten, the revenue Rutgers receives from the league’s television and media deals should triple in the short term and could be even more than that in years to come. The Big Ten reportedly paid its members about $24 million last year, though new members generally do not get a full share of revenue immediately. The Big East’s payout to football members last year was $6 million.

seriously, and no one in the media seemed to care,” Rudman said in 2007. “The report went into a dustbin in the White House.” Rudman, who also coauthored a groundbreaking budget balancing law and championed ethics, died just before midnight Monday at a Washington, D.C., hospital of complications from lymphoma, said Bob Stevenson, a longtime friend and spokesman. The feisty New Hampshire Republican went to the Senate in 1981 with a reputation as a tough prosecutor, and was called on by Senate leaders and presidents of both parties to tackle tough assignments. He is perhaps best known from his Senate years as co-sponsor of the Gramm-Rudman-Hollings budget-cutting law. He left the Senate in 1993, saying the law never reached its potential because Congress and presidents Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush played politics instead of insisting on spending cuts. In 2001, before the 9/11 attacks, he co-authored a report on national security with former Sen. Gary Hart of Colorado that said a major terrorist attack on American soil was likely
within 25 years. It was revived after the Sept. 11 attacks, and one suggestion, forming Homeland Security, was adopted. Six years later, Rudman said the sprawling department wasn’t functioning well and the country would be hit again. A former New Hampshire attorney general, Rudman was named chairman of the Senate Ethics Committee in 1985, a sensitive job that many colleagues avoided. Throughout his Senate career, Rudman was cited for his work on the Defense Appropriations subcommittee, where he supported a strong national defense but opposed expensive, hightech weaponry. The Gramm-RudmanHollings Act was approved in 1985. It was designed to end federal deficits by 1991 and required automatic spending cuts if annual deficit targets were missed. Congress rolled back the timetable each year, and the 1991 budget that was supposed to be balanced carried the second-highest deficit in history. He continued the fight after leaving the Senate. He and for mer Democratic Sen. Paul Tsongas of Massachusetts founded the
Concord Coalition, which campaigns for a balanced budget. During the biggest scandal of the Reagan years, Rudman, an outspoken member of the Senate’s Iran-Contra Committee, said key administration officials had showed “pervasive dishonesty” and disdain for the law by selling weapons to Nicaraguan rebels. During the 1987 hearings, he lectured Marine Lt.
Col. Oliver L. North, the operation’s key figure, about helping to hide the sale from Congress for fear it would have been rejected. “The American people have the constitutional right to be wrong,” he told North. “And what Ronald Reagan thinks or Oliver North thinks or what I think or what anybody else thinks makes not a whit.” Rudman also served on the committee that investigated the “Keating Five,”
senators with ties to the savings and loan debacle in 1991. The committee found California Democrat Alan Cranston had improperly aided former savings and loan executive Charles Keating Jr. When Cranston said he did only what others did, Rudman called the defense “arrogant, unrepentant and a smear on this institution.”

Ex-hedge fund trader HP claims fraud prompted $5B overpayment charged in insider ploy NEW YORK (AP) — A former hedge fund portfolio manager was arrested Tuesday in what prosecutors are calling perhaps the most lucrative insider trading scheme of all time — an arrangement to obtain confidential, advance results of tests on an experimental Alzheimer’s drug that helped investment firms make more than $276 million. Mathew Martoma, 38, was charged in U.S. District Court in Manhattan with using the information to advise a hedge fund owner to buy shares in the companies developing the drug, then later to dump those investments and place financial bets against the companies when the tests returned disappointing results. Martoma’s trades helped reap a hefty profit from 2006 through July 2008, while he worked for CR Intrinsic Investors LLC of Stamford, Conn., an affiliate of SAC Capital Advisors, a firm owned by Steven A. Cohen, one of the nation’s wealthiest hedge fund managers. “The charges unsealed today describe cheating coming and going,” U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara said at a news conference. The scheme unfolded “on a scale that has no historical precedent.” The government has been scrutinizing SAC since at least November 2010, when the FBI subpoenaed SAC and other influential hedge funds. Martoma is the fourth person associated with SAC Capital to be arrested on insider trading charges in the past four years. A request for comment from SAC was not immediately returned. The FBI said the scheme developed after Martoma met a doctor in Manhattan involved in an Alzheimer’s drug trial in October 2006. According to a criminal complaint, he later obtained confidential information related to the final results of a drug trial. Martoma’s attorney, Charles Stillman, called his client “an exceptional portfolio manager who succeeded through hard work and the dogged pursuit of information in the public domain. What happened today is only the beginning of a process that we are confident will lead to Mr. Martoma’s full exoneration.” Martoma was arrested at his home in Boca Raton, Fla., and made an initial appearance in federal court in West Palm Beach, Fla., where he was released on $5 million bail on charges of conspiracy to commit securities fraud and securities fraud. He was scheduled to return to court Monday in Manhattan. The Securities and Exchange Commission filed civil papers in the case against CR Intrinsic Investors, Mathew Martoma and Dr. Sidney Gilman. The civil complaint said the illegal money was earned in July 2008, when various hedge funds traded ahead of a negative public announcement involving the clinical trial results of an Alzheimer drug being jointly developed by Elan Corp. and Wyeth. The SEC complaint said that Martoma carried out the scheme with Gilman, a professor of neurology at the University of Michigan Medical School who served as chairman of a safety committee overseeing the clinical trial. Gilman was selected by Elan and Wyeth to present the final clinical trial results at a July 29, 2008, medical conference. Messages left with the University of Michigan Medical School were not immediately returned. Gilman’s lawyer, Marc Mukasey, said his client is cooperating with the SEC and the U.S. Attorney’s Office, and has entered into a non-prosecution agreement with federal prosecutors. Bharara said Martoma gained from “cultivating and corrupting” Gilman, eventually receiving $9 million in bonus pay for the year when the trades were made.

NEW YORK (AP) — Hewlett-Packard Co. said on Tuesday that it’s the victim of a multi-billion dollar fraud at the hands of a British company it bought last year that lied about its finances. HP CEO Meg Whitman said executives at Autonomy Corporation PLC “willfully” boosted the company’s figures through various accounting tricks, which convinced HP to pay $9.7 billion for the company in October 2011. Autonomy’s former CEO said HP’s allegations are false. HP is now taking an $8.8 billion charge to align Autonomy’s purchase price with what HP now says is its real value. More than $5 billion of that charge is due to false accounting, HP said. The revelation is another blow for HP, which is struggling to reinvent itself as PC and printer sales shrink. The company’s stock hit a 10-year low in morning trading. Among other things, Autonomy makes search engines that help companies find vital information stored across computer networks. Acquiring it was part of an attempt by HP to strengthen its portfolio of high-value products and services for corporations and government agencies.

In this Jan. 27, 2010, file photo, Leo Apotheker, speaks at a press conference in Frankfurt. Hewlett-Packard Co. said Tuesday that a British company it bought for $9.7 billion lied about its finances, resulting in a massive write-down of the value of the business.
The deal was approved by Whitman’s predecessor, Leo Apotheker, but closed three weeks into Whitman’s tenure as chief executive. Whitman was a member of HP’s board of directors when Apotheker initiated the Autonomy purchase. Among the tricks used at Autonomy, Whitman said: The company had been booking the sale of computers as software revenue
finance professor at Boston University and a former bank examiner for the Federal Reserve. As a result of its alleged accounting practices, Autonomy appeared to be more profitable than it was and seemed to be growing its core software business faster than was actually the case. The moves were apparently designed to groom the company for an acquisition, Whitman said.
and claiming the cost of making the machines as a marketing expense. Revenue from long-term contracts was booked up front, instead of over time. The allegations are serious, according to accounting experts. “According to GAAP accepted (generally accounting principles), the overstatement of revenue under any tax code is illegal,” said Mark Williams, a
US sues contractors over troop trailers in Iraq
CHICAGO (AP) — The U.S. government has filed a civil lawsuit accusing a Houston-based global construction company and its Kuwaiti subcontractor of submitting nearly $50 million in inflated claims to install live-in trailers for troops during the Iraq War. The lawsuit names KBR Inc. and First Kuwaiti Trading Co., alleging they overcharged for truck, driver and crane costs, and misrepresented delays in providing around 2,250 trailers meant to replace tents used by soldiers earlier in the invasion. In one instance, the contractors allegedly claimed they paid $23,000 to lease one crane per month when the actual price was about $8,000, according to the lawsuit, which was filed this week in U.S. District Court in Rock Island, Ill., and first appeared in federal court records Tuesday.

faced lawsuits before related to its work in Iraq. One of the most prominent involved a soldier electrocuted in his barracks shower at an Army base. That case was eventually dismissed. In the case involving the trailers, Jim Lewis, the U.S. Attorney for the Central District of Illinois, said “KBR and First Kuwaiti did not provide an honest accounting.” Stuart Delery, a U.S. deputy assistant attor ney general, said in a Department of Justice statement regarding the lawsuit that contractors “are not permitted to profit at the expense of the taxpayers at home who are supporting our men and women in uniform.” KBR spokeswoman Marianne Gooch emailed a brief statement Tuesday that said the company hadn’t yet seen the complaint but that, “We believe the government claims to be baseless and without merit.”

“KBR has faithfully supported American troops in Iraq and has performed its work in support of the Army with professionalism and in full compliance with its contract and the law,” the statement said. Shortly after the Iraq War began in 2003, KBR subcontracted First Kuwaiti to deliver and install the trailers for about $80 million, according to the lawsuit. First Kuwaiti blamed a lack of military escorts for repeated delays and tacked on around $49 million in charges, and KBR passed those extra charges on to the U.S. government knowing at least some of the costs were inflated, the lawsuit said. The suit cites an alleged 2004 letter from a KBR executive to First Kuwaiti that purports to prove the Texas company knew some of its subcontractor’s calculations were exaggerated, calling them “absolute highway robbery.”

Dear Heloise: What exactly are capers, and how are they used in cooking? Amanda T., via email
A staple in many Mediterranean meals, capers are actually pickled flower buds harvested from a bush in the area. They are interesting little round, green “balls,” found in jars in the olive section of most grocery stores. The smaller, or nonpareil, caper is most commonly used in chicken piccata and pasta dishes, adding salty flavor. Another hint: Capers will keep indefinitely in the refrigerator. Just make sure to store them in the brine they are packed in. Take out only the capers needed, and leave behind the rest in the remaining brine. Heloise
Dear Readers: After opening a container of cottage cheese, store it in the refrigerator on a low shelf (not in the door or in a drawer). After spooning out the amount you need, smooth the surface to cut down on liquid formation and possible separation. Or try this Heloise hint: Store the cottage cheese upside down with the lid on tight, on a plate. This makes it last longer because it creates a seal. Heloise

Our Favorite Animals
photo courtesy Blum Animal Hospital, Chicago/courtesy AVMA
Are there animals living in your home? In almost six out of 10 American homes, at least one pet is a part of the family. This week, The Mini Page takes a closer look at some of our favorite animals â€” the dogs, cats, â€œpocket petsâ€? and others that live right alongside us.
Dogs and cats are the No. 1 and No. 2 most common pets in homes in the United States. People have always loved having animals around them. Other favorite pets include horses, birds, and reptiles and amphibians.
Who chose whom?
Wolves, jackals, foxes, coyotes and dogs are called canines (KAYnines). They are all related to a prehistoric fox-like animal. Most canines live and hunt in groups called packs. Early human beings liked having canines around because they helped clean up leftover food. Eventually the dogs began to think of human settlements as their territory, and they would protect it against invaders.
Humans may have welcomed dogs into their communities, but cats â€œchose us,â€? said pet expert Gina Spadafori. â€œNo one caught one. They chose to be around us. Cats are very close to still wild,â€? she said. For centuries, cats have helped people control mice and rats in cities and on farms. In some societies, cats were associated with gods. For example, the Egyptian goddess Bastet was sometimes pictured as a cat. Cats can also be symbols of good or bad luck.
Would your pet fit in your pocket? If so, you probably have a guinea pig, hamster, rabbit or similar pet. More than 4 million homes in the U.S. include pocket pets. These types of animals are easier to take care of than some other pets because they are usually in cages. They are fun to snuggle with and may have distinct personalities. In fact, you can teach tricks to these types of pets, such as turning in a circle.
