NM fines polluters $7 million
ALBUQUERQUE (AP) — It’s been nearly a year and environmentalists are still uneasy about where Gov. Susana Martinez’s administration stands on protecting air, water and other natural resources. Their perception of the administration being cozy with industry persists, but officials with the New Mexico Environment Department have grown tired of critics assuming they’re taking it easy on polluters. They are pointing to nearly $7 million in penalties assessed since the beginning of the year against businesses that have failed to live up to their permits with the state. The department’s bureaus have already collected more than $3.2 million in the form of settlements and fines, according to records reviewed by The Associated Press. Most of the settlements involve air quality violations, from natural gas companies not having
WASHINGTON (AP) — Republican presidential hopefuls spoke up strongly for the anti-terror Patriot Act in campaign debate Tuesday night, saying it should be extended or perhaps strengthened to help identify and capture those who would attack the United States. Only Rep. Ron Paul of Texas among eight presidential hopefuls dissented, arguing that the law is “unpatriotic because it undermines our liberties.” In a debate on national security, Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann said
President Barack Obama has “essentially handed over our investigation of terrorists to the” American Civil Liberties Union. “Our CIA has no ability to investigate,” she said. Bachmann did not cite any examples to buttress either of her claims. The debate unfolded six weeks to the day before the Iowa caucuses inaugurate the competition for delegates to the Republican National Convention. The venerable DAR Constitution Hall was the site — a few blocks from the White House and as close as most
if not all of the GOP hopefuls are likely to get. The Patriot Act is one of the nation’s principal tools in ferreting out terrorist threats but has often provoked dissents from both liberals and conservatives who argue that in the name of national security it erodes constitutional protections. Paul made that point, and said other investigative techniques captured Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh. Gingrich jumped at that. See DEBATE, Page A8

Steve Nunez, of Washington Avenue Elementary School, kisses Meshach, a 6-month-old camel, during the finale of a school effort to raise money for the Accelerated Reading Program, Tuesday morning. Students collected spare change with each class competing against the others. The winning class was determined by the weight of the coins collected, with the winners topping out at 45 pounds of loose change. The winning class decided who would kiss Meshach and several teachers were selected. Finally, the full student body held an impromptu vote during an assembly to determine who else would kiss the camel and they unanimously chose the Nunez.

CAIRO (AP) — Egypt’s military ruler promised Tuesday to speed up a presidential election to the first half of 2012 and said the armed forces were prepared to hold a referendum on immediately shifting power to civilians — concessions swiftly rejected by tens of thousands of protesters in Tahrir Square, who chanted, “Leave! Leave!” The latest standof f plunged the country deeper into crisis less than a week before parliamentary elections, the first since the ouster nine months ago of longtime authoritarian leader Hosni Mubarak.
In a televised address to the nation, Field Marshal Hussein Tantawi rejected all criticism of the military’s handling of the transitional period and sought to cast himself and the generals on the military council he heads as the nation’s foremost patriots. Significantly, he made no mention of the throngs of protesters gathered in Tahrir Square to demand that he step down immediately in favor of an interim civilian council. Tantawi spoke as protesters fought army soldiers and police for a fourth day in streets leading to the
Drought to Character Counts! calls for teacher nominations continue
ALBUQUERQUE (AP) — Drought continues to plague nearly two thirds of New Mexico, and forecasters are warning residents to brace for more dry conditions through the winter. Members of New Mexico’s Drought Monitoring Work Group met Tuesday to talk about the latest weather models and what they mean for New Mexico. Rains in early October helped the drought recede from northwester n New Mexico, and the Middle Rio Grande Valley is no longer experiencing the worst level of drought. Still, Carlsbad is more than 8 inches behind with its precipitation.

11.3% of adults in Chaves County have diabetes JULIA BERGMAN RECORD STAFF WRITER
In 2009, 8.3 percent of New Mexicans aged 18 years and older had diabetes, according to New Mexico’s Indicator Based Infor mation System, which monitors health in New Mexico. In Chaves Couny, 11.3 percent of adults have diabetes, according to IBIS. November is National Diabetes Awareness Month. Julie Morrow, registered nurse with the New Mexico Department of Health Public Health Division, said there is a need to educate the community about the disease. Murrow, a diabetes educator for many years, outlined the three main types of diabetes. Type 1 diabetes typically occurs in children and young adults by the age of 30. In this case, some autoimmune response or virus has attacked the pancreas, so the organ doesn’t produce the hormone insulin any longer. This type of diabetes is easy to detect because those affected are usually very acutely ill. Of those diagnosed with diabetes, around 90 percent have Type 2 diabetes. Those with Type 2 produce insulin, yet their biggest problem is that they are resistant to the insulin they produce. Insulin resistance increases with age, obesity, family genetics, poor nutrition and lack of exercise, according to Morrow. While Type 1 is easily detectable, Type 2 diabetes develops gradually.
Morrow said it is important to be aware of the signs and symptoms of Type 2 diabetes, especially if there is a history of diabetes in one’s family or if the symptoms persist. Symptoms of Type 2 diabetes include increased urination, especially at night, increased thirst, unexplained weight loss and chronic fatigue. While Type 2 normally af fects adults, Morrow met an 8-year -old girl with Type 2 diabetes last week. “That was unheard of. So what you’re seeing now is these little 8-yearolds who have high blood pressure, high cholesterol,” she said, emphasizing this situation shows the need for awareness. “This is the first generation that parents may outlive their children. We’ve never seen this before.” Gestational diabetes occurs in women who are pregnant. For most women, the disease goes away after they deliver their baby, but a small population of women can continue to have diabetes. This type of diabetes also increases the woman’s chances she will have the disease later on. Her baby also has a higher risk of being affected later on. Different ethnic groups have a higher risk of getting diabetes, according to Morrow. “In different ethnic groups we see that Native American is the highest risk, then you have African-American, then Hispanics, then Asians then you have the white population. What I find interesting, is that

Justice Dept sues Utah Free eats at over immigration law Sale Barn,
SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — The U.S. Justice Department filed a lawsuit Tuesday challenging Utah’s immigration enforcement law, arguing that it usurps federal authority and could potentially lead to the harassment and detention of American citizens and authorized visitors. The lawsuit was filed Tuesday in Salt Lake City’s U.S. District Court after months of negotiations between Justice Department attorneys, state attorneys and elected leaders. Justice officials said they plan to continue those discussions despite the lawsuit. Other federal agencies included in the lawsuit are Homeland Security and the State Department. Even with the federal intervention, state officials remained confident the law would eventually be sustained. The Utah law, signed by Gov. Gary Herbert in March, requires people to prove their citizenship if they’re arrested for serious crimes ranging from certain
Chaves County, even though we have a fairly good percentage of Hispanics, we don’t have any Native American population, and yet we’re amongst the highest nonNative American population in the state with diabetes and obesity.” About one-third of people with diabetes do not know they have the condition, according to IBIS. This population can also be refered to as having pre-diabetes. In January, the public health division in Roswell will hold a 16week course with a curriculum designed by the Center for Disease Control. The course will target the pre-diabetes population in order to help prevent the disease. The program is funded in part by money from a Community T ransfor mation Grant through the CDC. The American Association of Diabetes Educators offers Thanksgiving eating tips for those with diabetes through its website diabeteseducator.org. Some suggestions include avoiding casseroles, or dishes with heavy creams or sauces, sticking to calorie-free drinks such as water, tea or seltzer and filling half of your plate with vegetables. The Diabetes Support Group meets the third Monday of every month at St Mark’s Evangelical Lutheran Church Fellowship Hall, 2911 N. Main St. Those wanting more information on the support group or the 16 week course can contact Julie Morrow at 347-2409 ext. 6222.
drug offenses to murder. It also gives police discretion to check citizenship on traffic infractions and other lesser offenses. Although the Utah law was modeled on Arizona’s strict enforcement measure that was passed in 2010, lawmakers worked to address some of the biggest concer ns. Chief among those was the requirement that police check the immigration status of anyone they arrest and the ability for police to verify the status of anybody they legally encounter. Civil rights groups filed a lawsuit earlier this year, and a federal judge granted a temporary restraining order in May against the law, House Bill 497. A hearing on that lawsuit is scheduled for Dec. 2. But that hearing may be delayed because of the federal lawsuit, National Immigration Law Center general counsel Linton Joaquin said. The NILC, along with the American Civil Liberties Union, is handling the original lawsuit against the state.

GOP, some Democrats eye redistricting compromise Roswell Daily Record
SANTA FE (AP) — Republican Gov. Susana Martinez along with some Democrats and minority voters are working on a possible compromise on a congressional redistricting proposal to of fer to a state district court that will determine district boundaries for the rest of the decade. Lawyers for the governor and a group that includes Rep. Brian Egolf, D-Santa Fe, along with Hispanic, African-American and Native American voters outlined their negotiations Tuesday to District Judge James Hall at a hearing to
prepare for a trial that starts Dec. 5 on congressional redistricting. The lawyers are working on what they described as a “least change” plan, which will make as few revisions as possible to New Mexico’s three congressional seats and won’t substantially alter the current political tilt of the districts. Currently, the 3rd District of northern New Mexico is heavily Democratic and the 2nd District of southern New Mexico has been reliably Republican. The Albuquerque-area 1st

A separate group of Democrats, including Rep. Antonio “Moe” Maestas of Albuquerque, continue to push a dif ferent plan, which would consolidate most of Ber nalillo and Valencia counties into the 1st District and make it slightly more Democratic in its voting. Even if an agreement is reached between Republicans and some Democrats, it still will be up to the judge to decide congressional district boundaries. Kennedy said lawyers in the negotiations are optimistic the judge will accept a plan that makes few
District has been the most politically competitive seat although Republicans held it for decades until a Democrat won in 2008 and in 2010. The goal of redistricting is to adjust boundaries for population changes during the past decade and equalize district populations as much as possible to comply with legal requirements for one-person, one vote. “We are optimistic we can come to a reasonable settlement,” Paul Kennedy, a lawyer for the gover nor, said after the hearing. He said the gover nor
wants to resolve the congressional redistricting dispute and potentially lessen the state’s legal expenses. He and Joseph Goldberg, a lawyer for the minority and Democratic group of voters, said there’s a tentative agreement on a proposal but a few details remain unresolved. Kennedy said talks continue over a couple of precincts in Valencia and Bernalillo counties, including Native American areas. However, not all Democrats in the redistricting court fight are backing the potential compromise.
ALBUQUERQUE (AP) — A judge ordered prosecutors and an attorney for a former Albuquerque police officer to be ready to go to trial by next summer in a murder case dating back four years. Defendant Levi Chavez is accused of shooting his wife in the mouth with his department-issued handgun, then trying to make it look like a suicide. District Judge John W. Pope on Monday set Chavez’s trial for July 9, The Albuquerque Journal reported. Chavez declined to comment to the newspaper on his way out of court Monday.
Pope told Chavez, his attorney David Serna and Assistant District Attorney Brian McKay to be back at the 13th Judicial District courthouse on April 30 to discuss where the discovery process stands. Serna told the judge the nearly 9,000 pages of discovery has left the defense essentially at a standstill since April, when Chavez was indicted on murder and other charges in the October 2007 death of his wife Tera. The problem, Ser na said, was that McKay’s staff didn’t properly index the voluminous discovery documents. McKay agreed, saying he
expected to have the error corrected as quickly as possible. Both attorneys said it will take at least six months to proceed to trial once the discovery is in a usable for mat. Ser na expects the number of pages to grow. On the day of the death, Valencia County sheriff’s investigators responded to the 911 call, spoke with Levi Chavez and began collecting evidence. A short time later, four Albuquerque police of ficers arrived to help with grief counseling, officials with the Albuquerque Police Department have said. An APD internal investi-

The severance tax fund had a negative return of about 10.2 percent in the quarter and a negative 4.8 percent return so far this year. Suspected fencing bust SANTA FE (AP) — Authorities in norther n New Mexico recovered an estimated $10,000 worth of stolen merchandise from a home south of Santa Fe where police believe criminals were fencing stolen goods. The bust last week netted almost exclusively unopened merchandise from retailers such as Home Depot, Lowes, Walmart, Kmart and Target. The recovered merchandise ranged from baby monitors to power tools to high-end electronics including televi-
sions and stereos. The Santa Fe New Mexican reports the homeowner was nowhere to be found when police seized the merchandise Friday. No arrests so far, however investigators with a multiagency burglary task force say they are confident the discovery will open the door to more busts — either arrests or recovery of stolen goods or both. Navajo hay shortage FARMINGTON (AP) — The haylofts in northwest New Mexico are nearly bare and the Navajo Agricultural Products Industry is warning it could actually run out alfalfa hay by the weekend. NAPI is a major supplier in San Juan County. The Daily T imes reports the crucial livestock feed has been in short supply this year because of drought. The massive Navajo Nation farm sells hay on contract to dairies and other customers and to the public from its storage facility south of Farmington and a sales office at Shonto, Ariz. Prices for alfalfa hay have climbed throughout
the Southwest. Hay is tough to come by — and increasingly expensive — throughout the region. Demand from ranchers in Texas and souther n New Mexico, where drought is devastating agriculture, is rippling throughout the feed market.

The Santa Fe County Sherif f’s Of fice says Clarence Catanach’s shop was searched Tuesday as part of an investigation into a fencing operation. Seized in the search were over 100 items, including jewelry, electronics, and framed artwork. Several bronze sculptures valued at $64,000 were also found hidden at the business.

Hall has scheduled trials on legislative and PRC redistricting later in December and in January.

Sens. seek lizard delay AR TESIA (AP) — New Mexico’s two U.S. senators are encouraging the director of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to temporarily delay a decision on whether to list the dunes sagebrush lizard as an endangered species. The Artesia Daily Press reports that the senators jointly signed a letter that was sent to director Daniel Ashe. His agency is expected to make a final decision next month on whether the lizard should be listed. The letter applauds the agency for extending the initial public comment period and for holding public hearings in New Mexico and Texas to gather comments. The letter says the best available scientific information is vital to the listing process and that Ashe has authority to temporarily delay the decision if there’s a dispute over the related scientific data. State gets grant SANTA FE (AP) — The New Mexico Public Education Department is getting nearly half a million dollars
from the Daniels Fund to create a mentorship program to help the state’s 40 lowest-performing schools. Gov. Susana Martinez says the $460,000 grant will be used to pair leaders in the underper for ming schools with those from the state’s top 40 schools. She says the idea is simple: share the practices from successful schools with those that are struggling. The innovative program will also provide a stipend of up to $3,000 for each participating school leader. The grant will also allow New Mexico to develop a website of best practices for students that principals, teachers and administrators across the state will be able to use.

A time to give thanks surrounded by food and family
SANTA FE — Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays. One of the reasons is that Americans still remember why we celebrate it. Thanksgiving isn’t just another holiday to which we give not one thought other than that it is a day off work. Nearly all of us truly remember to give thanks and truly celebrate the holiday. Unlike Christmas, there is no stress around giving and receiving presents. The purpose of celebrating Thanksgiving is very simple and very easy to observe. We’re told that all cultures observe some sort of day to give thanks. It seems to be a basic human need to back away from trouble, stress and daily commotion and reflect on one’s blessings no matter how meager they may be. In this part of the country where we can boast a European presence that predates English settlements on the East Coast,
INSIDE THE CAPITOL
we have some fun claiming that America’s first Thanksgiving occurred near El Paso in 1598. That’s when Don Juan de Onate and his large group of settlers paused on their jour ney northward to feast and give thanks to God for getting them through the desert and providing them with a river crossing. But it will never replace the story about Squanto and the Pilgrims. The observance of Thanksgiving is so comfortable. Family gathers, often from afar. Sometimes good friends without family are included. Generations of cooks gather in the kitchen to

discuss and prepare old recipes. The smell of turkey and the trimmings begins to fill the air. Old stories are told, getting better every year. And after dinner, generations of males step outside to toss around a football. And sometimes grandpa is taken to the emergency room after aggravating that old shoulder injury. Which brings us to those who can’t take off for the holiday — the nurses and emergency room workers, police and firefighters, airline employees and truckers and most of all, those who serve and protect us around the world. For some, this will be the first Thanksgiving away from home
and loved ones. Some will be in National Guard units called to active duty stations far away. For them, the taste of turkey will have very special meaning. Here are some more reasons Thanksgiving is special. It is a four-day weekend for most people. Who works on the Friday after Thanksgiving? Most employers don’t even expect it. Employees trade it for a vacation day or for a non-observed holiday like President’s Day. Of course, mall employees work even harder than usual on the day after Thanksgiving because it is the beginning of the holiday season, the busiest shop-
ping day of the year. It is called Black Friday because it is the day when many retailers say they finally get to quit using red ink on their bottom line. Thanksgiving also is a day when it is acceptable to stuf f oneself and grudgingly permissible to watch sports all day. Well, almost all day.

Solyndra not an isolated case
The fiasco of Solyndra, the apparently politically favored San Francisco Bay Area solar panel maker that went bankrupt after consuming nearly a half-billion dollars in taxpayer loan guarantees, is but a glimpse into a larger, more problematic condition rampant in Washington. While Solyndra is under investigation by the FBI and Congress, it is symptomatic of more costly disgraces that squander billions of taxpayer dollars and reward well-connected corporations, including some of the nation’s largest conglomerates and utilities. Questions remain about whether Solyndra’s $535 million loan guarantee resulted from political favoritism. But later, the Obama Energy Department pressured the company to delay announcing layoffs until after the November 2010 elections, The Washington Post reported. Layoffs occurred the day after the election. Six months prior, the president visited Solyndra to praise its operation, even though outside auditors already had questioned whether the company would collapse in debt, as it eventually did. Even Solyndra executives believed the Energy Department “thinks politically before it thinks economically,” a company board member wrote to George Kaiser, an Obama fundraiser whose family owned a third of the company. The Solyndra loan was renegotiated in February, months before the firm declared bankruptcy, to give private shareholders superior claims over taxpayers in the event of liquidation. But Solyndra is only one of many recipients of upfront grants of taxpayer money, tax credits spread over many years, government loan guarantees and even subsidies requiring consumers to purchase power at inflated rates for decades. The Washington Post detailed $171 billion in energy schemes since 1961 with little to show. “Not a single one of these much-ballyhooed initiatives is producing or saving a drop or a watt or a whiff of energy,” the Post reported, “but they have managed to burn through far more taxpayer money than the ill-fated Solyndra.” The New York Times reported this week on “a gold rush of subsidies in clean energy” under the Obama administration. “(T)axpayers and ratepayers are providing subsidies worth almost as much as the entire $1.6 billion cost of” NRG Energy’s solar panels located halfway between San Francisco and Los Angeles, the T imes reported. Nearly 90 percent of $16 billion in cleanenergy loans guaranteed by the federal government since 2009 subsidizes lower-risk power plants, many backed by huge corporations with vast resources — not struggling startups like Solyndra. Beneficiaries include Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley, General Electric, Exelon, and, as the Times put it, “even Google.” When it’s not outright political favoritism, this crony capitalism in the name of clean energy is nothing more than welfare for corporations that don’t need it. Congress could improve Washington’s integrity and substantially reduce government spending by ending these tax giveaways. Guest Editorial The Orange County Register
DEAR DOCTOR K: My son is almost 3, and I think he’s ready for toilet training. Is there a “right” way to toilettrain? DEAR READER: Every toddler’s readiness for toilet training is different. Some children might be ready at around 18 months; others not until 3 years of age or older. You’ll need to match your specific approach to your child. But some general guidelines apply to most children. How can you tell if your toddler is ready to be toilettrained? Look for the following signs: — Being dry for two to three hours at a time during the day; — Having a relatively pre-

Once you’ve decided to start: — Get a potty, preferably one that sits on the floor. — Put the potty in the playroom. Let your child sit on it and play with it. — Move the potty into the bathroom. — Encourage your child to sit on her potty at least once a day for a few minutes while you sit on the toilet. Boys should sit, too. It’s easier for boys to learn to use the toilet while sitting down. — When you think your child may need to use the bathroom, ask him if he’d like

ment as a first resource. If they are to reduce the size, reach and cost of government, they must demonstrate how they intend to empower Americans. If they are going to deprive Washington of power, they must show people who have ceded personal control to government why they would be better of f taking care of themselves. Tell stories about those who have overcome obstacles to become self-sustaining. The liberal left has so addicted half the country to government entitlement programs and the fiction that they can’t possibly make it in life without the aid of government that many have forgotten the meaning of personal freedom and the power that comes with it. Back to Newt. That Gingrich took money from Freddie Mac, an agency he now derides, may seem like hypocrisy to some, but not to me. I, for example, think the Department of Agriculture should be closed, though I once worked for them. I also received a student loan, which I repaid, though I am now critical of how some of the government’s student loan programs are run. I attended public schools, but believe parents ought to be able to send their kids to a private school if it promises to offer a better education. Am I hypocritical? Gingrich could return his fees to Freddie Mac, but that wouldn’t satisfy his critics. He should

only make the of fer if some of those top Fannie execs who received fat bonuses gave them back. For their role in the failed government loan program that aided the bankrupt Solyndra, President Obama and Secretary of Energy Steven Chu are not getting anywhere near the heat Gingrich is getting over Freddie Mac. The U.S. government, as part of its “Fast and Furious” program, sent guns to Mexican drug cartels in hopes of tracing them to cartel leaders and making arrests. Are we holding the administration accountable? There are different standards for Republicans and Democrats. Looking for a perfect candidate will end in disappointment. Consider President Obama, his falling poll numbers and the misplaced faith too many voters had in him in 2008. Republicans should not make the same mistake in selecting the next GOP presidential candidate. By realizing the imperfections in every candidate — and every person — and focusing on the ability of the one who is nominated to do what he promises, Republicans will have a better candidate and the country could have a better (but not perfect) president.

Proposed tax a bad idea
Dear Editor: Concerning the City Council’s updating of Ordinance 02-05 to the latest 11-05 which will allow the council to move forward with a GRT increase for economic development. As I attended the council meeting and listened to the discussion and the mayor’s speech, there were two issues at stake. One was some new language stating the mayor will appoint an Economic Development Project Review Committee that “should reflect a cross section (racially, ethnically, and culturally) of the city of Roswell and Chaves County.” It was pointed out by a couple of councilors, that line in and of itself is discriminatory. I’d go so far as to say it’s unconstitutional as well. The mayor’s speech was confusing at first, trying to figure out what his words had to do with ultimately raising the GR T for economic development? Then it struck me. He and some of the council have been influenced by either a person or special interest group to pass it with that language or lose support for the increase in the GRT. Were they intimidated or coerced? I have no doubt they were and they caved to the pressure. Future dealings with these committees and council will be open to further blackmail and political threats.

The second issue is with the ordinance itself. As a matter of principle, “government” at any level shouldn’t be in the insurance, banking or incentive business. Our local government has enough to do trying to maintain streets, water, trash and fire/police services. Beyond that, their track record leaves a lot to be desired. The mayor will say it’s for infrastructure only, but their definition of infrastructure goes beyond mine and Websters to include grants, loan guarantees, relocation funds, etc. This isn’t more of the same, it’s worse. Want to attract new business? It’s easy, good schools, low crime, low taxes and low regulation. How well are we doing in those areas? This ordinance reeks of Keynesian economics. While technically legal, these un-American policies are failing and wrecking our economy and those around the world. The argument is we have to do so to compete with other cities. That was the same exact argument used to justify slavery. Any business who would enter into one of these agreements with all the conditions and requirements are not businesses and industries we want in our community. Yep, we are a poor community in a poor state, we only have to look at the value system and principles behind statutes and ordinances like this to understand why.

Veteran miscellaneous ‘bits and pieces’ A6 Wednesday, November 23, 2011
Occasionally, there are “miscellaneous” bits and pieces of information we vets need to know concerning benefits and changes in Title 38, the Veterans’ laws in the Federal Code of Regulations. Periodically, I’ll do a column touching on these FYI gems.
Here’s a “bit” on medical costs if you have a copay tacked to your benefits. I recently received an Explanation of Benefits from the emergency air transport company that flew me to Lubbock when I had my heart attack last month. The bill for services was $39,999. The medical and flight crew saved my life, so the amount was negligible considering the alternate outcome. I wanted to point out that for those veterans who pay copayments for their medical benefits, a 20% copay on this service is $7,999.80. When you consider the billing for the
hospital, Emergency Room, medication, ambulance, physician services, etc., the total is well over $100,000. That’s a $20,000 copay you will be responsible for. You may want to plan a backup plan to help pay for this type of out-of-pocket expense.
Here’s a “piece” on how to protect yourself if you have to switch health insurance coverage to a new plan for any reason. You will need what the government calls a “Certificate of Credible Coverage.” An individual notice is likely to say, “As a TRICARE beneficiary, you already have a comprehensive pharmacy benefit available through TRICARE. This letter serves as proof that you have creditable coverage, meaning that your TRICARE prescription drug plan is at least as good as the Medicare prescription drug plan. While you do not
need to take any action at this time, you are encouraged to keep this letter as proof of your creditable prescription drug coverage through TRICARE. Although TRICARE beneficiaries with Medicare Part A and/or Part B are also eligible for Medicare Part D prescription coverage, for most TRICARE beneficiaries there is little advantage to signing up for a Medicare prescription drug plan. One exception is that beneficiaries with limited income and resources may be able to sign up for Medicare Part D with little or no premium. If you
Roswell Daily Record
decide to sign up for a Medicare prescription drug plan, you may do so during the general enrollment period, between October 15 and December 7 each year. Under certain situations there may be additional enrollment opportunities. If you are considering signing up for Medicare Part D during the enrollment period, be aware of the following: (1) Your coverage will begin on January 1 of the following year, as long as the plan gets your enrollment request by December 7. (2) The late enrollment fee will not apply unless you are without creditable coverage, e.g., TRICARE coverage, for 63 days or more. You will need a ‘CoCC’ as proof.
For changing health insurance in general, TRICARE advises, “You may need to furnish this Certificate of Credible Coverage if you become eligible under a
Avoid spreading plant disease through compost Q. I know compost is good for my soil and that it is better to compost the dead plants from my garden. However, I worry that I will put diseased plants into my compost pile and create problems next year. I am not sure if my plants are diseased or healthy. Is there any way to avoid spreading disease with my compost? Jamie D. A. Books and common wisdom say do not put diseased plants into the compost pile, but as you mention, you may not know that your plants are diseased. To complicate matters, some diseases do not spread in the soil. Curly top virus and tomato spotted wilt virus are not soil-borne and will not cause problems if the diseased plants are composted. Plants with bacterial and fungal diseases are the ones that can cause problems in compost. If all the material put into the compost reach a pasteurizing temperature
(130 degrees for prolonged periods of time, or 160 to 180 for half an hour), most disease organisms, weed seeds, and animal pests will be killed. Higher temperatures that sterilize the compost are not as effective because pasteurization leaves some beneficial organisms living in the soil to help keep disease organisms out. Achieving adequate temperatures through the compost pile takes properly balancing the nitrogen and carbon containing components of the compost pile, maintaining proper moisture, and proper aeration and turning of the compost. An alternative procedure is to pasteurize potentially diseased plants and seed bearing weeds before adding these
materials to the compost pile. You can do this by solarizing the plant debris. Place the material to be solarized into a black plastic garbage bag (moisten if dried material is added), and place the bag and plant material in a sunny location. If the days are sunny and not too cold, the plant material should be pasteurized in a week or two. You can test the internal temperature on a sunny day using a soil thermometer. Put sticky tape over the area you will penetrate with the thermometer to seal the hole. Once the material has been treated, it can be safely added to the compost pile. It is also possible to pasteurize compost after composting by heating it in an oven (best with a
portable oven in the garage because of odors produced), on the barbeque, or by solarization. If compost is to be used in making potting soil at home, it is good practice to treat the compost before making the potting soil.

The businesses cited include Texas-based XTO Energy, Western Refining and Public Service Company of New Mexico, one of the utilities fighting to repeal the state’s cap-andtrade regulations. It was during opening arguments in that case that Environment Department general counsel Ryan Flynn first pointed to $2.8 million in penalty assessments made by the agency’s Air Quality Bureau. He contends the figures show the department isn’t giving industry a break. “Something I’ve taken personally is the claim that we’re in the pocket of

‘wow thank you, you did a good job.’ To be honored and even nominated for this award is a huge morale booster for the teachers,” Fuller said. Judge Alvin Jones, a member of the organization, said educators are absolutely crucial to the organization in Chaves County. “We are now at a point where we can once again recognize the pivotal role of educators in our community and how important they are to sustaining the six pillars of character and the education of our young people as well, of course, in regard to the development of their character.” For the past eight years, the organization has been able to present the program through the generosity of Eastern New Mexico Medical Center and Roswell Regional Hospital. “I think everyone is aware that there are some changes going on right now with the two hospitals here in town. They are not certain what degree of support they’ll be able to provide, but they have been wonderful sponsors in the past, and we’ve been able to award some fabulous prizes because of their support,” Douglass said. Jones said the organization is actively soliciting continued support for the program. He added, every year the number of nominations that the organization receives increases. Betty Read Young, of Read and Stevens, said it
Neither Gingrich nor any other Republican mentioned that Obama, like President George W. Bush before him, signed legislation extending the Patriot Act.

For environmentalists who are used to for mer Democratic Gov. Bill Richardson supporting their fights to curb greenhouse gas emissions, to protect water and keep oil and gas drilling out of certain areas, Martinez’s Environment Department has big shoes to fill. During Richardson’s tenure, the department assessed more than $74 million in civil penalties against polluters. His final years in office saw some big-ticket cases: a nearly $1 million settlement with Los Alamos National Laboratory over groundwater issues, a $5 million settlement with Texas-based
has been a very exciting and rewarding experience to be a sponsor of the teachers of character program. “I feel that it is important to recognize the private and the public school teachers who have been a positive influence on our children in Chaves County. It has been very interesting to see the responses that the children and parents and community put into this program to nominate their dream teacher, who has made a positive influence in their life. There is no better program in Chaves County to recognize these outstanding teachers and I am thrilled to be part of that program to help them and to recognize their performance.” Current public and private school teachers in the county, from preschool through college level, are eligible to be nominated. Nominations must be submitted by Jan 27. Nomination forms will be available in English and Spanish at the Roswell Chamber of Commerce, the Hispano Chamber of Commerce, and at all schools throughout the county. The forms are also available, and can be filled out, online at the Character Counts! website, CCCCNM.org.

stantly in flux, Gingrich has emerged as Romney’s principal rival atop the public opinion polls. As he looked around him, he saw other rivals who once held that position — Bachmann, Texas Gov. Rick Perry and businessman Herman Cain among them. The debate ranged widely over foreign policy issues, but neither the format nor the moderator permitted all eight candidates to answer any one question. That pro-
Marathon Oil Corp. over air quality violations at a natural gas processing plant near Carlsbad, and a $34 million agreement with Targa Midstream Services and Versado Gas Processors for violations at three gas plants in southeastern New Mexico. Martinez’s promises to establish a more businessfriendly environment in New Mexico is what got environmentalists riled up early on. Court battles ensued over delays in publication of the emissions rules, new dairy regulations and building codes intended to promote energy-saving standards in New Mexico. Then came accusations that regulators appointed by Martinez colluded with utilities and others in an effort to overturn the emissions rules and that the

ingness to do what benefits the community, even when it is not the easiest course of action. Taking the road less traveled takes character, a notion that was emphasized by the choice for the event’s speaker, retired judge Alvin Jones.

Asked if he would support an Israel attack on Iran to prevent the Islamic regime from acquiring a nuclear weapon, Cain said he would want to know what the plan was and have an understanding of its chance of success. Gingrich said he would bomb Iran only as a last resort and with a goal of
Roswell Daily Record bringing about the downfall of the government. There was more disagreement when it came to the war in Afghanistan. For mer Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman said it was time for the United States to withdraw nearly all its troops. Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney said top generals disagreed with that and asked Huntsman if he was talking about a withdrawal beginning immediately.
“Did you hear what I said?” Huntsman asked across the debate stage, noting that under the Constitution the president is commander in chief. A few moments later, referring to Vietnam, he said a president had listened to the generals in 1967, and the outcome was not in the interests of the United States. Also on the debate stage were businessman Herman Cain and former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum.
state was siding with Public Service Company of New Mexico over pollution controls at a coal-fired power plant in northwestern New Mexico. Martinez has defended herself, saying she’s more interested in “commonsense policies” that balance economic growth with responsible stewardship. Flynn said the policy differences are obvious but the department’s mission remains the same. That’s partly why his office started tracking the agency’s enforcement actions. He plans on publishing a report early next year to provide a measurement for current and future administrations. “I thought we could debunk this myth that we’re asleep at the wheel, that we’re not protecting drinking water or ground-
water or air,” Flynn said. The challenge is the department’s key enforcement bureaus are suffering from high vacancy rates that stem from a hiring freeze initiated by the previous administration. In the Air Quality Bureau, the freeze and attrition have resulted in seven vacancies in its enforcement division. “It really hurts. It impacts our ability to do what we need to do,” said Richard Goodyear, a longtime employee and acting bureau director. The number of per mit applications the bureau reviews has quadrupled to 941 over the past 15 years, and the number of federal regulations inspectors have to consider has grown exponentially. “Yet, the number of staff has stayed the same,” Goodyear said.
While the department continues to streamline its processes and move its reporting systems online, Goodyear said the governor’s office has cleared the way for the department to start filling vacancies. For Goodyear and Flynn, it’s the employees that drive the department. Had some of them not stepped up earlier this year, the department could have missed an opportunity to get New Mexico’s dairy industry back on track. The department recently negotiated a settlement over new rules that offer groundwater protection and allow for new permits to be issued. “A lot of people who work here are very passionate about the environment,” Flynn said. “They view time as their most precious commodity and they want to spend it doing good work.”
authority.” The military previously floated the end of next year or early 2013 as the likely dates for the presidential election, which is widely being seen as the last stop in the process of transferring power. But Tantawi did not mention a specific date for the vote or when the military would return to its barracks. Furthermore, his offer for the military to step down immediately if the people so wished in a referendum was vague at best, but it also mirrored the generals’ aversion to the youth groups that engineered the 18-day uprising that ousted Mubarak and which are again behind the massive, anti-military protest in
Tahrir Square. His referendum proposal suggests that Tantawi has no faith that the crowds in the streets of Cairo and other cities represent the nation’s will. The Muslim Brotherhood, Egypt’s strongest and best organized group, is not taking part in the ongoing protests in a move that is widely interpreted to be a reflection of its desire not to do anything that could derail a parliamentary election it is sure to dominate. The Brotherhood and the military have long been suspected of having a secret rapport although both sides vehemently deny it. If a referendum is held, the Brotherhood has the resources to influence the
balloting by its ability to mobilize supporters and, for the right price, portray a vote favorable to the military as the duty of Muslims. Belal Fadl, a prominent columnist who has grown increasingly critical of the military after initially supporting it, said the solution for Egypt is to hold a presidential election immediately. Tantawi’s address bore a striking resemblance to Mubarak’s televised speeches during the uprising, when the ousted leader made one concession after another — only to be rejected by protesters as too little, too late.
Mayor Tom Jennings, the program got its start locally in the mid 1990s. It was the second Character Counts! program in New Mexico, after the program in Albuquerque. Jones said that those who brought Character Counts! to Chaves County worked hard so that it would not be just “another school program.” What sets Character Counts! apart, Jones said, is its distinct six pillars of character: trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fair ness,
caring and good citizenship. Jones quoted what he said were the words of Roswell Independent School District Superintendent Michael Gottlieb, who said, “the six pillars are enduring.” As such, the six pillars are applicable to a multitude of situations. Those who follow the concepts behind the six pillars could create, in the end, an enduring impact. “Clubs don’t automatically prosper and endure,” Jones said. “It takes ...
dedication.” Likewise, he said the same sort of dedication must be given to youth, as “people don’t automatically develop good character. “(Now) more than ever, children need strong, constructive examples,” said the former children’s court judge. Jones called on those present to continue to set a positive example. “Your creeds, your thought models ... do make an impact, and for the better,” he said. email@example.com

Review: Knightley a force of nature in ‘Method’ CHRISTY LEMIRE AP MOVIE CRITIC
Spitting and stammering, clawing and convulsing, her jaw jutting forward and her eyes popping out of her head, Keira Knightley is a frightening force of nature in “A Dangerous Method.” And this is only at the film’s start. It’s a brazenly over -the-top performance, a huge gamble in depicting her character’s mania and self-loathing in such intentionally off-putting fashion. But eventually it pays off as it makes sense in context, and especially as this woman evolves. For this is a David Cronenberg film — although the pristine, cultured trappings might suggest otherwise — and this time, Knightley is his monster. Cronenberg has specialized in a peculiar brand of horror film
over the decades, with physical mutations serving as the norm in such 1980s movies as “Videodrome” and “The Fly.” Here, the transformation occurs within; it’s psychological, invisible, but no less startling. Don’t let the genteel, costume-drama niceties fool you. Set in the early 20th century in Zurich and Vienna, “A Dangerous Method” follows the relationship between two of the leading voices in the development of psychoanalysis: Carl Jung (Michael Fassbender) and Sigmund Freud (Viggo Mortensen, a Cronenberg regular of late). Knightley plays Sabina Spielrein, the wealthy Russian who is as beautiful as she is tormented, and who ultimately comes between these two men. Sabina goes to Jung as his patient, not only shaking up his dull, structured life but also providing him a bountiful source of
research for the new “talking cure” he’s crafting. (The film, written by the esteemed Christopher Hampton and based on his play “The Talking Cure,” is itself based on the John Kerr book “A Most Dangerous Method.”) Seems she’s as screwed-up as she is because of spankings her father gave her starting in early childhood, punishment that she didn’t just endure but actually began to welcome and find sexually stimulating. The buttoneddown Jung is fascinated from a scholarly standpoint but also secretly aroused as a man; Fassbender, with his proper dress and carriage, quietly conveys Jung’s inner conflict, his percolating desire. But Jung also turns to his mentor, Freud, for advice. Freud, of course, thinks every symptom is a manifestation of some sort of subconscious sexual impulse, so Sabina’s case gives these two

much to chew on. Mortensen, star of Cronenberg’s “Eastern Promises” and “A History of Violence,” dials down his smoldering masculinity here for a performance that’s dryly humorous, full of snarky vanity and droll little digs. Eventually another troubled mind turns this three-way into a foursome when Freud sends Otto Gross (Vincent Cassel), a patient of his, to Jung for treatment. Otto is all id, impossible to control — and Cassel does play casual menace beautifully — but he also inspires Jung to follow his own impulses, even though they’re at odds with the comfortable life he shares with his docile, moneyed wife (Sarah Gadon) and their children. Jung’s interludes with Sabina provide sudden, stunning moments of sadomasochistic intensity, which punctuate a prevailing tone that might actually
be too restrained. Their afternoons at her sparse apartment are thrilling, though, and they help maintain a wild streak in a film that is crisply and meticulously shot and edited. As Sabina’s behavior settles down — as she morphs from patient and lover to student and therapist in her own right — the relationship between Jung and Freud grows more bitter and volatile. The passive-aggressive series of letters they exchange provides some much-needed humor in this frequently serious, intellectual exercise. But they’re onto something, though: As anyone who has ever been in therapy can attest, the danger is inside all of us, whether we’re willing to face it or not. “A Dangerous Method,” a Sony Pictures Classics release, is rated R for sexual content and brief language. Running time: 99 minutes. Three stars out of four.

If you’ve heard it once, you’ve heard it a thousand times — defense wins championships. In most cases, that statement is 100 percent accurate. Then there are the cases when a team plays great defense, but doesn’t do
enough on the other side. The Goddard girls basketball team played great defense in its 2011-12 debut on Tuesday at Ground Zero Gymnasium, but the Rockets didn’t do enough on the other end of the floor. The Rockets went 26 minutes without a field goal to open the game and turned the ball over 23 times en

route to a 32-14 loss to visiting Portales. “The improvement I did see was holding them to 32,” said third-year Rocket coach Greg Torres. “You’ve got to be OK with that against Portales. I know it’s the first game of the year and they’re probably still trying to work on their offensive execution, but I think, defensively, we did some things.” Torres was right about that. The Rockets did some good things on the defensive end of the floor, but it was the lack of offense that cost them. They turned the ball over on their first five possessions of the game and went nearly four minutes before even attempting a field goal. By the end of that opening stanza, Portales (1-0) had built a 7-0 lead thanks to eight turnovers and an 0for-4 performance from the field by the Rockets. In the second quarter, Goddard again went without a field goal and turned the ball over six times. The Rockets finally scored their first points of the game with

NA T I O N A L BRIEFS NBA PLAYERS CONSOLIDATING THEIR EFFORTS
NEW YORK (AP) — After filing two separate antitrust lawsuits against the league in different states, NBA players are consolidating their efforts and have turned to the courts in Minnesota as their chosen venue. A group of named plaintiffs including Carmelo Anthony, Steve Nash and Kevin Durant filed an amended federal lawsuit against the league in Minnesota on Monday, hoping the courts there will be as favorable to them as they have been to NFL players in the past. The locked-out players filed class-action antitrust suits against the league last Tuesday in California and Minnesota. The California complaint was withdrawn Monday. “The likelihood was we’d get a faster result in Minnesota than California,” players’ lawyer David Boies said. “I think the result would be the same.” NBA owners locked out the players July 1, and the labor strife between the two sides has forced games to be canceled through Dec. 15. “This is consistent with Mr. Boies’ inappropriate shopping for a forum that he can only hope will be friendlier to his baseless legal claims,” Rick Buchanan, NBA executive vice president and general counsel, said in a statement. Federal court in Minnesota was the venue for all NFL labor disputes that reached the courts for the past two decades. The NFL players enjoyed several victories over the owners there, most recently when U.S. District Judge Susan Richard Nelson issued a temporary injunction this summer that lifted the NFL’s owner-imposed lockout. That decision was stayed and eventually overturned on appeal by the 8th Circuit in St. Louis.

Braun is NL MVP
NEW YORK (AP) — Ryan Braun sat alone on a balcony in his Malibu home that overlooks the Pacific Ocean, uneasy about his chances of winning the NL Most Valuable Player award. With the season Los Angeles’ Matt Kemp had, he wasn’t sure the call would come at all. The phone rang all right, and Braun has been smiling ever since. Braun was voted the NL MVP on Tuesday after helping the Milwaukee Brewers win their first division title in nearly 30 years. “I’m not going to pretend like I wasn’t anxious or nervous
Broncos cut former starting quarterback Kyle Orton
ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — Kyle Orton has gone from Jay Cutler’s replacement to Tim Tebow’s backup to the unemployment line. The Broncos released the 29-year-old veteran quarterback Tuesday, six weeks after benching him following a 1-4 start. “I spoke with Kyle earlier today and thanked him for everything he did for the Broncos. He was a true professional throughout this season. I’ve got a great deal of respect for him as both a player and as a person,” coach John Fox said in a statement. “This was the right decision for our football team. We feel good about our quarterback group, and this gives Kyle an opportunity to help another team and showcase his talents.” Orton shouldn’t stay unemployed for long. Although he’s a vested veteran with seven NFL seasons under his belt, Orton is subject to the waiver rules because he was released after the trade deadline. If another team claims him, it will be responsible for about $3 million in salary, which is what remains of his roughly $9 million contract for 2011. If nobody claims him, he’ll be free to sign with anybody. Two intriguing possibilities are the Chicago Bears and Houston Texans. Both are in the thick of the playoff race at 7-3 but have prob-

lems under center, and another potential destination is AFC West rival Kansas City. Cutler broke the thumb on his right throwing hand last weekend and might miss the rest of the regular season. His backup is Caleb Hanie. The Bears visit the Broncos on Dec. 11. Matt Schaub of the Texans is out for weeks with a right foot injury and he’s been replaced by previously underachieving Matt Leinart. Matt Cassel hurt his throwing hand in the Chiefs’ 17-10 loss to Denver on Nov. 13 and had season-ending surgery the next day. His replacement, Tyler Palko, threw three interceptions in his first start, a 34-3 loss at New England on Monday night. John Elway, the Broncos’ executive vice president of football operations, called Orton an “absolute pro,” and See ORTON, Page B3

because I was,” Braun said. “It’s honestly difficult to put into words how much this means to me.” The left fielder received 20 of 32 first-place votes and 388 points in voting announced by the Baseball Writers’ Association of America. A nerve-racking morning that began with a solitary drive turned to elation in the California sun. The 28-year -old Braun shared the news with his brother and girlfriend, who were at the house. He called his parents, then rang good friend Aaron Rodgers, the Green Bay Packers quarterback, and exchanged text messages with Kemp, the runner-up. “This is really is a dream,” Braun said. “This is beyond my wildest dreams to be in this position at this point in my career.” Kemp earned 10 firstplace votes and 332 points after coming close to winning the first Triple Crown since Carl Yastrzemski in 1967. Braun’s teammate Prince Fielder finished third

It was the 11th straight year the three-time MVP was in the top 10 in balloting. NL Cy Young Award winner Los Angeles’ Clayton Kershaw was 12th in the voting a day after Detroit’s Justin Verlander added the AL MVP to his Cy Young. “I think he was the single most dominant player in baseball this year,” Braun said of Verlander. “As a position player I’m biased to the fact that I think position players should be at the forefront of the award, but if you honestly look at what he accomplished, how much he meant to that team and how dominant he truly was you cannot make any argument against him winning that award.” In his fifth year in the big leagues, Braun led the NL with a .597 slugging percentage and had a chance to overtake Jose Reyes for the batting title on the last day of the season but finished second with a .332 average. The four-time AllBaseball Labor Highlights NEW YORK (AP) — Details of the new labor agreement announced Tuesday between baseball players and owners: Length: The agreement starts Dec. 12 and runs through Dec. 1, 2016.

Star had 33 homers, 111 RBIs, 109 runs scored and stole 33 bases as Milwaukee won a franchise-best 96 games. His 77 extra-base hits was tops in the league. Kemp led the NL with 39 homers, 126 RBIs and was third in average (.324), but played for the NL West’s third-place Dodgers. He also won a Gold Glove. “Matt’s one of the best players in the game. No question about it. The season he had will go down as one of the greatest in Dodgers history,” said Braun, who grew up in California rooting for the Dodgers. “If he had won the MVP I certainly couldn’t have argued with him winning. He had a phenomenal year.” Although Braun and Kemp had similar statistics, Kemp was hindered by the Dodgers’ 82-79 third-place finish in the NL West. The Brewers won the NL Central title, their first division crown since winning the AL East in 1982. “Without a doubt I think it’s a drastically different experience playing meaningful games down the stretch,” said Braun, the 2007 NL Rookie of the Year. Braun, in fact, was con-
vinced the Brewers’ firstplace finish is what put him over the top with voters. “If you honestly assess both of our seasons individually I think his numbers are probably better than mine, and I just feel fortunate to have been on the better team,” Braun said.
“It’s an individual award, but it’s a result of being part of a special team, a special organization.” Braun is the first Brewers player to win the MVP award in the National League and first since Robin Yount won in 1989, when Milwaukee was in the
AL East. Rollie Fingers (1981) and Yount in 1982 are the other Brewers to take home MVP honors. “Robin’s the greatest player in Milwaukee Brewers history, so anytime you’re mentioned alongside him it’s a tremendous achievement,” Braun said.

said he decided against keeping him on the roster through the remainder of the season. “We thought it was best for the Broncos at this time as well as for Kyle to catch on with a different team,” Elway said. “Kyle is going to have more options in the NFL. He’ll get an opportunity to play somewhere else, and we wish him the best of luck.” The Broncos didn’t announce a corresponding roster move, but one possibility was the promotion of rookie quarterback Adam Weber from the practice squad. Orton was acquired in
2009 in the Cutler trade with the Bears and he won his first six starts in Denver before going 6-21. He passed for 3,000-plus yards in each of his first two seasons in Denver after spending his first four seasons in Chicago. The Broncos tried to trade Orton after the NFL lockout ended in July but talks with Miami broke down and Fox threw open the quarterback competition, something for which Tebow proved ill-prepared. Orton decisively outplayed Tebow in training camp for a second straight season but he turned ordinary when the games started to count, turning the ball over nine times and losing a string of winnable games and the organization’s confidence.
Orton’s slide hit bottom Oct. 9 when he went 6 for 13 for 34 yards in the first half against the Chargers and threw his seventh interception, tied for most in the league at the time. Fox sent in T ebow to start the second half and after a slow start, the former Florida star sparked a listless offense to within a last-gasp pass of coming back against San Diego. “I’m disappointed with everything,” Orton said at the time. “I wish I could have played better, I wish we had a better record, I wish a lot of things, but the reality is what it is.” The next day, Fox pulled Orton aside before team meetings and infor med him he had decided to go all-in on Tebow. Orton pledged to be a
good teammate and stay ready in case his number was called again, but Tebow has gone 4-1 with the Broncos tailoring their offense to his unique skill set and reintroducing the option to the NFL. When the Broncos were walloped by the Lions in T ebow’s second start, Brady Quinn leapfrogged Orton as the primary backup and appeared close to getting his shot under center. But Fox stuck with Tebow, albeit with the caveat that it was a week-to-week proposition. Since then, Tebow has won all three of his starts and engineered fourthquarter comebacks against the Raiders and Jets to go with his miracle in Miami, when he led the Broncos

On Monday, Elway said on his weekly radio show, however, that he wasn’t sold on Tebow as the longterm answer at quarterback, saying the secondyear pro has to become a better passer and improve on third downs. Tebow is completing just 44.8 percent of his passes and Denver was 1 for 11 on third downs last week before its game-winning, 95-yard touchdown drive that stunned the Jets 1713. Several teammates said Orton was anything but a cancer in the locker room in recent weeks, even though it had become obvious he was biding his time until his first foray
into unfettered free agency as a healthy QB in his prime and with a .500 record as a starter. Yet, his demotion did create some awkward moments. He kept his captainship after losing his starting job and would help lead the team during warm-ups before watching the less accurate but more mobile T ebow take the bulk of the snaps during the week. Orton was still held in high esteem in the Broncos locker room, especially by veterans such as Champ Bailey and Andre’ Goodman, who said at the time of Orton’s benching that they felt he was being unfairly singled out as the reason for the team’s bad start.
MLB players, owners sign new labor agreement
NEW YORK (AP) — Baseball players and owners signed an agreement for a new labor contract Tuesday, a deal that makes baseball the first North American professional major league to start blood testing on human growth hormone and expands the playof fs to 10 teams by 2013. The five-year deal collective bargaining agreement makes changes owners hope will increase competitive balance by pressuring large-market teams to rein in spending on amateur draft picks and international signings. Other highlights of the deal include: requiring players to play in the AllStar game unless injured or excused; expanding instant replay to include decisions on foul lines and traps, subject to an agreement with umpires; banning smokeless tobacco products during televised interviews by players, managers and coaches; requiring players arrested for DWI to undergo mandatory evaluation; and wearing improved batting helmets manufactured by Rawlings by 2013. An initial positive test for HGH would result in a 50game suspension, the same as a first positive urine test for a performance-enhancing substance. “This was very important to me,” baseball commissioner Bud Selig said. “This really is in everyone’s best interest.” Random testing for HGH will take place during spring training and the offseason, but there is no agreement yet on random testing in-season. There can be testing at any time for cause. “We’ve consulted with a lot of scientists on this, and we know there’s a difference of opinion among scientists we’ve consulted,” union leader Michael Weiner said. “We are sufficiently comfortable with the science to go ahead with testing, but we have preserved the right if there is a positive test for there to be a challenge — if that’s appropriate — to the science at

Portales led 18-1 at the break. “If we had knocked down some free throws and we’re within eight points, who knows,” Torres said. “I just think that once they opened it up to about 15, we just really had a hard time, confidence-wise. “But, you know, it gives us a good gauge and things to work on. Portales is a good team, they’re probably top three in 3A.” Goddard won the third quarter 4-2 thanks to four free throws and finally broke the fieldgoal drought with exact-

that point in time.” The sides will explore inseason testing, but the union wants to make sure it’s done in a way that doesn’t interfere with players’ health and safety. Weiner said scientists told baseball the current blood test can only detect HGH in the blood from 48-to-72 hours. “The players want to get out and be leaders on this issue, and they want there to be a level playing field,” Weiner said. “The realities, though, are that baseball players play virtually every single day from Feb. 20 through October. And that’s unlike any other athlete — professional or amateur — who’s subject to drug testing. We want to make sure that we’re doing everything we can on the HGH issue, but that it be consistent with not interfering with competition and not interfering with players health and safety under those circumstances.” In addition, the number of offseason urine tests will increase gradually from 125 currently to 250 before ly six minutes left in the fourth on an Abbie Blach 10-footer. Her bucket got Goddard (0-1) within 12 at 21-9, but Portales squelched any hope of a comeback with a 7-0 run over the next 3 1 ⁄ 2 minutes. “Defensively, I’m not displeased,” Torres said. “Of fensively, I think we’ve still got a long way to go. We’ve got 25 more games during the regular season to do it, so I’m confident that we will take care of that and just get better.” Blach led Goddard with five points and six rebounds. Portales got nine points and seven boards, both game highs, from Savanah Vincent. firstname.lastname@example.org
the 2015 season. At a time when the NBA season is threatened by a lockout and NFL preseason was disrupted by labor strife, this deal ensures baseball will have 21 consecutive years of labor peace since the end of the 1994-95 strike. “Nobody back in the ’70s, ’80s and early ’90s, 1994, would ever believe that we would have 21 years of labor peace,” Selig said. The deal, which still must be ratified by the players and owners, is the first contract since Weiner replaced Donald Fehr as union leader last year. As for the playoffs, there will be an additional two teams starting in 2012 or 2013 that will give baseball 10 of 30 clubs in the postseason. In the NFL, 12 of 32 teams make the playoffs. In the NBA and NHL, 16 of 30 advance. MLB executive vice president Rob Manfred said a decision on whether the expanded playoffs would start next year likely will be made by the January owners’ meeting.

The two wild cards in each league — the non-first place teams with the best records — will meet in a one-game playoff, and the winners will move on to the division series. This agreement calls for the Houston Astros to switch from the NL Central to the AL West in 2013, leaving each league with three five-team divisions. It’s baseball’s first realignment since the Milwaukee Brewers went to the NL after the 1997 season. In a change, teams will be allowed to have 26 active players for day-night doubleheaders, provided they are scheduled with a day’s notice in order to give clubs time to bring up someone from the minor leagues. On the economics, the threshold for the luxury tax on payrolls will be left at $178 million in each of the next two seasons, putting pressure on high-spending teams such as the New York Yankees, Boston Red Sox and Philadelphia Phillies not to raise their spending even more.

Schooley said that, so far this season, not putting teams away in the second half has been his team’s MO. “ In th e s eco nd h alf , this has been our MO all year,” he said. “We get up on people and then we let them back in it and it’s a dog fight. We can’t do that come conference time.” Conference play is the
threshold rises to $189 million for 2014-16. And there is a new market disqualification test as an incentive for clubs to increase revenue, preventing teams from large markets from receiving revenue-sharing proceeds. Both teams from New York, Los Angeles and Chicago will be ineligible to receive revenue sharing by 2016 along with Atlanta, Boston, Houston, Oakland, Philadelphia, San Francisco, Texas, Toronto and Washington, a person familiar with the agreement said, speaking on condition of anonymity because the teams were not announced. The proceeds will be given back to the teams paying in revenue-sharing, as long as they stay under the luxurytax payroll threshold. The minimum salary reaches the $500,000 mark in 2014, and then there will be cost-of-living increases in both of the following two years. There also will be a new “competitive balance lottery” that gives smallmarket teams extra selections in the amateur draft,

and those draft picks can be traded. Major league free agent compensation will be completely revised in 2013, with a team having to offer its for mer players who became free agents the average of the top 125 contracts — currently about $12.4 million — to receive draft-pick compensation if a player signs with a new team. It eliminates the statistical formula that had been in place since the 1981 strike settlement. In addition, the portion of players with 2-3 years of major league service who are eligible for salary arbitration will rise from 17 percent to 22 percent starting in 2013. Owners achieved their goal of reining in spending on amateur players coming to the major leagues. For high school and college players taken in the June amateur draft, there will be five bands of penalties, starting with a 75 percent tax on the amount 0-5 percent over a specified threshold for each team next year, based on its selection spot. For teams going 5-10 percent over, the tax will rise to 100 percent and they will lose their next first-round draft pick. If a team goes more than 15 percent over, it could lose its following two firstround draft picks. For players taken in the 11th round and beyond, teams may give them signing bonuses up to $100,000 without it counting against the new threshold.
No probe in Hawaii HONOLULU (AP) — Honolulu police say they don’t have enough information to investigate allegations that University of Hawaii football players are involved in a point-shaving scheme. The Honolulu Police Department said in a statement Tuesday that they became aware of the allegation in early November but “at this time there is not enough information to open a criminal investigation.” Earlier Tuesday, the university released a statement saying the admissions of fice received an anonymous letter Nov. 3 accusing unnamed players of intentionally playing poorly to affect the final score as part of a gambling scheme. The university says officials immediately alerted police and the NCAA. After winning 10 games in 2010, the Warriors are 5-6 this year. They’re 3-7-1 against the point spread and have failed to beat the spread in nearly two months.

Bobby M. Mayfield
PLANO, Texas — Ethel James, 100, of Plano, and formerly of Dallas and Lubbock, and Albuquerque and Roswell, N.M., passed away on Nov. 19, 2011, at Victoria Gardens of Frisco. Bor n Oct. 7, 1911, in Moville, Iowa, Ethel was the daughter of Maude (Johnson) and Clarence Babcock. She graduated from Moville High School in 1933 and attended Morningside College in Sioux City, Iowa. She married James “Ken” Kenneth James on June 2, 1940, in Moville. Ethel and her husband settled in Roswell, after several years of relocation to Philadelphia and Oklahoma City, when Ken was employed in civilian support of the war effort. In Roswell and later in Albuquerque, Ethel was a leader in the 4-H program, participating in local, county and state-wide activities. She was employed at Eastern New Mexico Medical Center in Roswell. After moving to Albuquerque in 1959, she was employed at Bataan Memorial Methodist Hospital. Ethel was a familiar presence in the Lutheran congregations of which she was a member (Immanuel Lutheran Church in Roswell, Christ Lutheran Church in Albuquerque, Christ Lutheran Church in Lubbock and St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in Plano), serving as teacher, women’s auxiliary leader and committee member. At Christ Lutheran Church in Lubbock, she was a member of the Braille Bible assembly team, an activity that she enjoyed well into her 80s. Needlework was a favorite hobby, and she created numerous embroidered pieces of art, many of which won awards at South Plains State Fair in Lubbock and the Texas State Fair in Dallas.
LAS CRUCES — Bobby M. Mayfield, aviator, farmer and cowboy, legislator, businessman, and lawyer, died peacefully Nov. 18, 2011, at Mesilla Valley Hospice in Las Cruces. He was 87. Mr. Mayfield was born in 1924 at his family's farmhouse located on what is now North Valley Drive. A 1942 graduate of Las Cruces Union High School, Mayfield attended New Mexico Military Institute before joining the Army Air Corps in 1943. He flew B24s out of southern Italy in the European Theater in World War II. While awaiting re-assignment to the Pacific War Theater, Capt. Mayfield married Mary Ann Lee, on June 8, 1945. He served in the 97th Bomber Wing from 1945 to 1953, during which time he flew B-29s and B-50s. He was a member of the original select crews of A-Bomb carrying wing of the Strategic Air Command under Gen. Curtis LeMay. In 1951, Bobby piloted a B-50 from England to El Paso in a 26hour flight, then the record for greatest distance without in-flight refueling. After resigning his Air Force commission in 1953, Mayfield and his family moved to begin farming life in the Mesilla Valley. He simultaneously pursued and received his Bachelor of Arts and master’s degree in economics from New Mexico State University. As the Mayfield farming operation grew, and as Bobby began ranching operations in northern New Mexico, he also was elected to the New Mexico Legislature from 1961 through 1968. In the Legislature, he served as chairman of the Taxation and Revenue Committee and as chair man of the

joint Legislative Finance Committee. Rep. Mayfield was instrumental in adoption of a plan that fundamentally changed and moder nized taxation, administration and spending in New Mexico State gover nment. In 1968, Bobby and Mary Ann sold their farming operations in southern New Mexico and moved to Albuquerque so that he could enter University of New Mexico School of Law at the age of 45. After graduation in 1972, he practiced law in Albuquerque for a short while before retur ning to Las Cruces in 1975, where he and Mary Ann resided for the rest of his life. He opened a general law practice and engaged in various and diverse business operations, including real estate development, manufacturing turquoise jewelry, commercial leasing, and various retail operations. In later life, rather than retreating into a sedentary law practice, Bobby Mayfield became a litigator, including a national class action case by automobile dealers, cases involving denial of insurance claims, products liability, and medical malpractice. Mr. Mayfield remained fully active in his business and in the law until early this year when failing health intervened. Late in life, he recalled a favorite high school English teacher who made her students memorize poetry. His favorite lines then and throughout his life included the conclusion of William Henley's Invictus: “I am the master of my fate; I am the captain of my soul.” Bobby Mayfield is survived by his wife of 66 years Mary Ann; three children, Robert (Mary); of Scottsdale, Ariz.; Pam Carmody, of Las Cruces; and Melissa Cairns (Jack), of Las Cruces; eight grandchildren, Kelly, Karrie, Amanda, Robert, Catherine, Tres, Sean and Ryan; and four great-grandchildren, Kaleigh, Mia, Kyle and Katelyn. A celebration of life service for family and friends will be held Sunday, Dec. 4, 2011, at 1 p.m., at the Farm and Ranch Museum in Las Cruces.

take a more intimate turn. Is it wrong for me to think this way? I don’t know how to bring up the “sex talk” with him without seeming desperate or like I’m rushing things. What should I do? NEEDS TO KNOW IN VIRGINIA
DEAR ABBY UNIVERSAL PRESS SYNDICATE
DEAR NEEDS TO KNOW: You and your boyfriend are normal, healthy young adults. If this is the first time you and a young man have gotten “a little heavy,” then it’s not surprising that you felt conflicted, depending upon how you were raised to think about premarital relations. However, because you have now progressed to the point of physical intimacy, it is important that you and your boyfriend talk about last weekend and what may happen in the future. Share your feelings and ask how HE feels about what happened and what he
DEAR ABBY: I’m a freshman in college and have the sweetest boyfriend in the world. We’ve always been close and trusted each other, never pushing the other too far. I always thought it was innocent and safe. Last weekend, though, things got a little heavy between us. We stopped before anything happened, but I felt dirty afterward. As I thought about it, I realized that, to me, it had seemed OK that our relationship was starting to
would like to happen going forward. That’s not desperate or rushing things — that is communication. T rue intimacy involves the mutual sharing of thoughts and feelings in a relationship.
DEAR ABBY: A few weeks ago, my wife retur ned from a business meeting out of town. After unpacking, she took a bath. I happened into the bathroom just as she finished drying off. When she saw me, she grabbed a towel and held it over her shoulder and breast, but not before I spotted a hickey and bruise on her chest. When I asked her about the hickey, she said she had no idea what had caused it. After that, she refused to discuss the matter. The hickey faded and disappeared after two or three weeks.

TROUBLED HUSBAND IN TEXAS
DEAR TROUBLED HUSBAND:
If your marriage is on such thin ice that you need a lie detector test to determine if your wife is telling the truth, you may need the services of a family law specialist.
You asked my opinion, and here it is: From my perspective, you and your wife could benefit more from some truth sessions with a marriage counselor than with a polygraph examiner. However, one way to find a polygraph examiner would be to Google “polygraph examiners in Texas.” Another would be to consult an attorney about a referral.

Today’s Crossword Puzzle
Dear Readers: There are numerous SWEETENERS available today as an alternative to sugar, but what makes each one different? Here are some hints to help you: The pink packet contains saccharin (an artificial sweetener), which is much sweeter than actual sugar and has no calories. The yellow packet, which also has no calories, is made from sucralose (an artificial sweetener), holds up well when heated and can be used in baking/cooking recipes. The blue packet has aspartame as the main ingredient (another artificial sweetener) and, as with the others, has no calories. The brown packet, made from sugar cane, is a natural sweetener and does have some calories. The white-and-green packet, made from rebiana (part of a stevia leaf, found in Paraguay), also is a natural sweetener, but it is calorie-free. Each packet has its own special ingredient. However, it comes down to taste as to which you like. Some are for baking and cooking, while others are not. If you are diabetic, the artificial sweeteners are a better choice than the ones made from natural sugars. Heloise
For Better or For Worse
P.S.: I’ve been using artificial sweeteners since they came out, and sometimes use one blue and one yellow for a sweeter taste, or one pink and one blue.
Dear Heloise: When I cook a meatloaf in my slow cooker, I spray a metal, collapsible vegetable steamer with vegetable spray and place it in the slow cooker. I firmly stuff the meatloaf into the steamer and cook following my favorite recipe. All the fat drips into the bottom of the slow cooker, leaving the meatloaf moist and fat-free. I just lift out the steamer, cut and serve. My family loves it when I cook meatloaf this way. Julie B., Brazil, Ind. Dear Readers: Do you have extra dinner plates that need to be stored? Which of the following can you put between the plates to keep them protected while in storage? 1. Paper plates 2. Rubber mesh 3. Coffee filters 4. All of the above The correct answer is 4 — all of the above! Heloise
Hagar the Horrible
Dear Heloise: When I fix my frozen pizza, I turn it upside down while still in the wrapper, remove the plastic from the back and cut the pizza all the way through. With the plastic still on it, I’ll flip it over onto a cookie sheet lined with foil sprayed with cooking spray. I then take off the plastic. This makes it so much easier for me to cut and handle. Betty T., Orange, Texas
The Wizard of Id
Love this, and it’s very smart to pre-cut the pizza. Heloise
