WASHINGTON (AP) — For the first time in days, President Barack Obama and House Speaker John Boehner spoke by phone Wednesday about the “fiscal cliff” that threatens to knock the economy into recession, raising the prospect of fresh negotiations to prevent tax increases and spending cuts set to kick in with the new year.

Republicans not to inject the threat of a government default into the already complex issue. “It’s not a game I will play,” Obama told a group of business leaders as Republicans struggled to find their footing in talks with a recently re-elected president and unified congressional Democrats.

Among the Republicans, Sen. Tom Coburn of Oklahoma became the latest to break ranks and say he could support Obama’s demand for an increase in tax rates at upper incomes as part of a comprehensive

plan to cut federal deficits. Officials said after the talk between Obama and Boehner, R-Ohio, there was no immediate plan for a resumption of negotiations to avert the clif f. At the same time, they said that for the first time in a few days, at least one top presidential aide had been in touch with Republicans by email on the subject. Each side has been declaring that the crisis can be averted if the other will give ground. “We can probably solve this in about a week, it’s not that tough,” Obama

said in lunchtime remarks to the Business Roundtable. It has been several days since either the president or congressional Democrats signaled any interest in negotiations that both sides say are essential to a compromise. Presidential aides have even encouraged speculation that Obama is willing to let the economy go over the “fiscal cliff” if necessary and gamble that the public blames Republicans for any fallout.

Egypt crisis grows

CAIRO (AP) — Egypt descended into political turmoil on Wednesday over the constitution drafted by Islamist allies of President Mohammed Morsi, and at least 211 people were wounded as supporters and opponents battled each other with firebombs, rocks and sticks outside the presidential palace. Four more presidential aides resigned in protest over Morsi’s handling of the crisis, and a key opponent of the Islamist president likened Morsi’s rule to that of ousted authoritarian leader Hosni Mubarak. Both sides were digging in for a long struggle, with the opposition vowing more protests and rejecting any dialogue unless the charter is rescinded, and Morsi pressing relentlessly forward with plans for a Dec. 15 constitutional referendum. The clashes outside the presidential palace in Cairo’s Heliopolis district marked an escalation in the deepening crisis. It was the first time supporters of

TRIPOLI, Lebanon (AP) — The families of Lebanese men killed in Syria last week say their relatives were more interested in nice clothes and vacations than fighting a civil war. Yet Syrian President Bashar Assad’s regime branded them foreign jihadists — and their deaths set off three days of new spillover violence. Gunmen loyal to opposite sides in Syria’s civil war battled Wednesday in the streets of the Lebanese city of Tripoli. The fighting has killed six people and wounded nearly 60 since Monday, security officials said. The bloodshed is a sign of just how vulnerable Lebanon is to getting sucked into the Syrian crisis. The countries share a porous border and a complex web of political and sectarian ties that is easily enflamed. See SYRIA, Page A3

Wreaths Across Rio Grande water users’ allotment America, 12/15 CHAUNTE’L POWELL RECORD STAFF WRITER

In 1992, the Worcester Wreath Company of Harrington, Maine, found itself with an abundance of wreaths after the holiday season had ended. Years before that, Morrill Worcester, owner of company, took a trip to the Arlington National Cemetery and the experience stuck with him well into adulthood. When the time came for Worcester to dispose of the excess wreaths, he decided to honor America’s veterans by ador ning the older sections of the cemetery. This project continued on for several years almost in secrecy, but gained national attention in 2005 and Wreaths Across America was born. The national project is now a tradition observed by many cities across the country, including Roswell. MaryAnn Murphy, a Patriot Guard senior ride captain, said Roswell has been a part of the tradition for the past five years. The event this year will take place on Dec. 15 at 10 a.m., at the Chaves County Courthouse, with Ar my veteran Michael Trujillo serving as master of ceremonies. There will be seven wreaths hung, one for each of the six branches of the military and the seventh for prisoners of war. The Patriot Guard will meet at the south end of the Kmart parking lot and escort the wreaths to the courthouse at 9 a.m. Murphy said the cere-

mony has been well received in this area, noting that numbers of attendees has grown each year. Last year, she said about 100 people gathered outside the courthouse to pay their respects in the lessthan-favorable weather conditions. “Mostly it’s people who have had family in the military, or have had family in the military who have passed,” she said. “But of course, it’s open to the public.” She added that if anyone with a motorcycle wants to join the escort, they should be at Kmart by 8:30 a.m., to receive a flag to put on their bike. She urges the community to take just a moment out of their day to come to the courthouse and help honor America’s fallen heroes. “I would really love to have a big turnout,” she said. “I think the ultimate sacrifice has been made by these people and the families never forget it, so we as a community should never forget.” New Mexico Military Institute will conduct a wreath-laying ceremony Dec. 11, at 3:30 p.m., when NMMI’s assembled Corps of Cadets, faculty and staff will lay seven wreaths of their own. Six will be in honor of the six military branches and one will commemorate the nearly 93,129 U.S. servicemen whose last known status was either as prisoners of war or missing in action. Roswell veterans and their families are invited to attend the ceremony.

may be curtailed

ALBUQUERQUE (AP) — Federal authorities are telling Rio Grande water users that their allotment of water from the San Juan-Chama project may be curtailed significantly in 2013 because two years of drought have depleted reserves. The Albuquerque Journal reports that the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation has been informing water agencies that they could see a 20 percent curtailment in water deliveries next year. The San Juan-Chama project brings water from the Colorado River into the Rio Grande Basin and has been a lifeline for Rio Grande water users in recent drought years, especially Middle Rio Grande Conservancy District farmers and the Albuquerque metro area’s government water utility. This is the first time since the San Juan-Chama project was completed in the 1970s that it faces the possibility of shortages. The bureau made the decision to begin notifying water users this week after looking at how much water is left in storage from previous years, along with forecasts that show little prospect for significant drought relief this winter. Snowpack in the Rio Grande headwaters that feed the San Juan-Chama project is currently just 35 percent of average for this time of year, with almost no snow in the past month, according to the federal gover nment’s Colorado Basin River Forecast Center. John Stomp, chief oper-

ating officer of the Albuquerque Bernalillo County Water Utility Authority, said the utility has enough of its own water stockpiled to make it through 2013 with minimal effect. But irrigators in the Rio Grande Valley between Cochiti and Elephant Butte Reservoir could see a shorter 2013 irrigation season if a good snowpack does not bail out water users.

For now, the water agencies and irrigation districts that use San Juan-Chama water will be told they can only count on 80 percent of their normal annual distribution, said Mike Hamman, head of the Bureau of Reclamation’s Albuquerque office. If there is sufficient snow this winter, the allocations may rise come spring, Hamman said. “It’s not necessarily panic time for shortages to the project yet,” Hamman said. In all, 13 municipal water agencies and irrigation districts have contracts with the federal gover nment for San JuanChama water. Albuquerque and the Middle Rio Grande Conservancy District are by far the largest.

For the Conservancy District, a 20 percent shortfall in San Juan-Chama water could mean reducing farmers’ irrigation season by as much as a week, said David Gensler, the district’s water manager. Gensler said the bureau’s decision to begin preparing for possible shortfalls in 2013 was “not unreasonable,” given the impacts of back-toback drought years.

‘Friend’ locks woman in closet

According to the Roswell Police Deparment’s incident reports, a 25-year -old Roswell woman found her way in to the police after being held captive for two days. She told officials that she had been locked in a closet by a man whom she called a “friend.” He then nailed the door shut. According to the report, he beat her with a metal shelf, hitting her on the head, before he closed her in the closet and nailed it shut. She said she man-

aged to escape and ran to get assistance. The individual gave her a ride to an Allsup’s store where she could call the RPD.

The record states that an officer met her at Allsup’s and took her to the police department. The of ficer noted on his report that the victim’s face was scratched and she had bruises on her back. The case has been turned over to the Criminal Investigation Division for investigation.

Senate approves NNSA reform study ALBUQUERQUE (AP) — The Senate has approved New Mexico Sen. Tom Udall’s proposed study of ways to reform oversight of the nation’s nuclear facilities. The measure by Udall, a Democrat, and Sen. Jon Kyl, R-Ariz., was added to the Senate’s defense authorization bill Tuesday. It would create an advisory panel to recommend ways to reform the National Nuclear Security Administration. In a joint statement, Udall and Kyl said they sponsored the proposal “in light of major management issues, cost overruns and security breaches in recent years.” “The NNSA has been plagued with problems that have impacted the scientific and stockpile stewardship work being done at Sandia and Los Alamos National laboratories, as well as the security and safety of the workers there,” Kyl said in a joint statement. “The ineffectiveness of the NNSA is a serious national security issue and our amendment will take a good look at what is needed to reform it.” Nuclear watchdogs, however, criticized it as an attempt to give members of Congress the power to seat a panel that will make recommendations to protect the private contractors that run the nation’s

nuclear facilities. Greg Mello, executive director of the Los Alamos Study Group, said the proposal ignores advice from government auditors to absorb NNSA back into the Department of Energy, aiming instead “toward freeing the power ful nuclear contractors, whose management has recently produced a string of multi-billion-dollar cost overruns and failures, from the limited accountability they now have.” The proposal is not part of the House authorization bill and would have to be added in conference committee negotiations to become law. Approval of the amendment came the same day the NNSA and the contractor that runs Los Alamos announced the contractor would pay $10 million for cost overruns on a faulty $213 million security system. The money will cover “potentially unallowable costs” incurred in construction of the system, which was built around what is known as Technical Area 55, the only place in the country where nuclear weapon triggers can be made. Officials have estimated it will take an additional $41 million and another six months to fix the system, which was supposed to be up and running this summer.

Drive-by shot enters house Police were dispatched to the 300 block of East Frazier Street, Tuesday, following a report of shots fired. The shot penetrated a window and a spent .038 caliber shell casing was found in a neighboring yard. One person saw a mid-80s blue car driving along the street about the same time that the shots were fired. All neighbors agreed they heard two shots.


•Police were dispatched to the 1400 block of South Missouri Avenue, Tuesday, after a man discovered someone had entered his locked vehicle and removed a silver 15-inch laptop computer of unknown make, a Nikon camera and a black briefcase.

The missing items were valued at $3,354. •Police were called to the 2400 block of North Main Street, Tuesday. The individual reported seeing two men jump a fence, enter a home through an unlocked door and leave with a black suitcase. One man was described as bald, with a light complexion. He wore all black.

rival camps fought each other since last year’s antiMubarak uprising, when the authoritarian leader’s loyalists sent sword-wielding supporters on horses and camels into Cairo’s Tahrir square in what became one of the uprising’s bloodiest days. The large scale and intensity of the fighting marked a milestone in Egypt’s rapidly entrenched schism, pitting Morsi’s Brotherhood and ultra-conservative Islamists in one camp, against liberals, leftists and Christians in the other. The violence spread to other parts of the country later Wednesday. AntiMorsi protesters stormed and set ablaze the Brotherhood offices in Suez and Ismailia, east of Cairo, and there were clashes in the industrial city of Mahallah and the province of Menoufiyah in the Nile Delta north of the capital. Compounding Morsi’s woes, four of his advisers resigned, joining two other members of his 17-member advisory panel who have abandoned him since the

specified increases to raise tax revenues by $800 billion over a decade but has rejected Obama’s demand to let the top income tax rate rise from 35 percent to 39.6 percent. To buttress their case, Republican officials in Congress pointed to numerous proposals that Obama has previously advanced that could generate the same amount of revenue he is seeking — without raising rates. The list includes limiting the tax deductions taken by upper-income taxpayers, raising taxes on the oil and gas industry and curbing or eliminating the deductibility of tax-exempt bonds. Separately, in a bit of political theater, Senate Republican leader Mitch Belt and her family lived in the Midwest before moving to Clovis and eventually Roswell. Kilgore said her mother had been active in several activities throughout her life, enjoying games of horseshoe, pool and shuffleboard. She also played tambourine in a band at the J.O.Y. Center during the ’80s. Kilgore said her mother has never had a broken bone or needed surgery of any kind. Perez said while Belt couldn’t remember all of her 100 years, she still cares deeply for her children and asks for them frequently. “She’s just a really, really sweet lady,” Perez said. Perez also said Kilgore commits to being there for her mother, from participating in activities at the center to accompanying her mother to doctor’s crisis began. The opposition is demanding that Morsi rescind the decrees giving him nearly unrestricted powers and shelve the controversial draft constitution the president’s Islamist allies rushed through last week in a marathon, allnight session shown live on state TV. Speaking at NATO in Brussels, U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said the unrest shows the urgent need for dialogue between Morsi’s government and opposing voices on a constitutional path going forward. The huge scale of the opposition protests has dealt a blow to the legitimacy of the new charter, which Morsi’s opponents contend allows religious authorities too much influence over legislation, threatens to restrict freedom of expression and opens the door to Islamist control over day-to-day life. In addition, the country’s powerful judges say they will not take on their customary role of overseeing the referendum.

McConnell urged Democrats to allow a vote on Obama’s current plan, which calls for a $1.6 trillion tax increase over a decade, in an attempt to show it lacks support. The majority leader, Democratic Sen. Harry Reid of Nevada, refused. The “fiscal cliff,” with its year-end deadline, refers to increases that would affect every worker who pays federal income tax, as well as spending cuts that would begin to bite defense and domestic programs alike. Economists in and out of government say the combination carries the risk of a new recession, at a time the economy is still struggling to recover fully from the worst slowdown in decades. appointments. “She’s very dedicated and loyal to the wellbeing of her mother,” Perez said.

The Lebanese men killed in Syria were Sunni Muslims, like the majority of rebels trying to overthrow Assad’s regime. Assad and much of his inner circle belong to the Alawite sect, which is an offshoot of Shiite Islam. The fighting in Lebanon comes at a time of deep uncertainty in Syria, with rebels battling government troops near Assad’s seat of power in Damascus. In Brussels, U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton reiterated concer ns that “an increasingly desperate Assad regime might turn to chemical weapons” or lose control of them to militant groups. She also said NATO’s decision on Tuesday to send Patriot missiles to Turkey’s southern border with Syria sends a message that Ankara is backed by its allies. The missiles are intended only for defensive purposes, she said. Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu was quoted Wednesday in the Turkish newspaper Sabah as saying that Syria has about 700 mis-

siles, some of them longrange. Syria has been careful not to confir m it has chemical weapons, while insisting it would never use such weapons against its own people. But as the regime wobbles, there are fears the crisis will keep spiraling outside its borders. Fighting has spilled over into Turkey, Jordan and Israel since the uprising began more than 20 months ago, but Lebanon is particularly susceptible. Seventeen times bigger than Lebanon and four times more populous, Syria has long had powerful allies there, including the Iran-backed militant group Hezbollah. For much of the past 30 years, Lebanese have lived under Syrian military and political domination. That grip began to slip in 2005, when for mer Prime Minister Rafik Hariri was assassinated in Beirut. Widely accused of involvement — something it has always denied — Syria was forced to withdraw its troops. But Damascus has maintained power and influence in Lebanon. Syria’s state-run news agency, SANA, reported that 17 Lebanese “gunmen” were killed inside

Syria last week, and on Sunday, Syrian TV aired footage of the dead. Bassam al-Dada, a political adviser for the rebel Free Syrian Army, said the group believes the Lebanese men were the victims of a “complicated Syrian intelligence operation” aimed at showing that foreign fighters are involved in fighting in Syria. Meanwhile, the unrest inside Syria shows no sign of slowing down. The uprising began with peaceful protests in March 2011 and later escalated into a civil war that the opposition says has killed more than 40,000 people. Besides the violence roiling the capital, Damascus, there was growing speculation about the fate of a top Syrian spokesman who has become a prominent face of the regime. Lebanese security officials have said Foreign spokesman Ministry Jihad Makdissi flew Monday from Beirut to London. But it was not clear whether Makdissi had defected, quit his post or been forced out. Syria has had no official comment on Makdissi, who has defended the regime’s crackdown on dissent.

Another look at medical marijuana A4 Thursday, December 6, 2012

Marijuana could be a cure for drug addiction. That’s right, a cure. Maybe. This was one fascinating revelation from a recent presentation on the opioid epidemic. In fairness to the speaker, the statement about marijuana was a minor point in a generally grim presentation about the growing problem of addiction to and death from prescription opioid drugs. The emphasis on marijuana is mine. The speaker was Scott Goold, an economist who recently trained as a community addiction recovery specialist with Project Echo, a University of New Mexico medical education program. Project Echo provides specialty training and expertise to health care professionals throughout the state via distance learning. The news about prescription pain medication keeps getting worse. According to Goold, the






problem is, in part, that opioid medications are really effective at relieving pain. Someone recovering from an injury might want help with pain for several weeks. But it takes only about two weeks for physical dependence to occur. People with injuries can become addicted to these drugs while doing what seems perfectly reasonable. There is also growing evidence that pain medication in combination with certain kinds of other medications, all in legal doses, can sometimes cause death. According to medical evidence Goold cited,

when actor Heath Ledger died in 2008, his body contained only legally prescribed amounts of drugs — but there were six different drugs. Because pain medication is so widely prescribed, and because doctors often don’t counsel patients enough about the dangers, addiction has become an alltoo-common side effect of injuries. This creates a problem for patients and adds extra burden to our overloaded health care system. Marijuana, Goold said, has two effects on the body: it can cause a high, and it relieves pain. Some strains of pot have more of the pain-relieving compounds and fewer of the compounds that make users feel intoxicated. So it can work as a pain relief substitute — either preventing addiction or helping to relieve it. It’s not an opioid and does not cause the same addiction problem. What makes this newsworthy is

Roswell Daily Record

that it comes at a time when increasing legal access to marijuana is on the national mind. Marijuana’s usefulness for post-traumatic stress disorder was recently reaffirmed after having been challenged in New Mexico’s own medical marijuana program. Meanwhile, Colorado, our neighbor to the north, has passed an initiative legalizing small quantities of marijuana for recreational use. A few predictions can be made about the effects of the Colorado law: Unless the federal government intervenes, marijuana use in Colorado will increase, Colorado tourism will increase, the availability of marijuana will affect border resort towns like Durango, and one way or another the effects will spill over into New Mexico. And then there’s Gary Johnson. Our former governor, who was the Libertarian Party’s 2012 presidential nominee, presents cogent arguments for legalizing marijua-

na. His running mate was James P. Gray, a retired California judge who has been a leading crusader for drug policy reform and is author of a 2001 book “Why Our Drug Laws Have Failed: A Judicial Indictment Of War On Drugs.” While their presidential run is over, we can expect to hear more from both of them on this subject. Prescription opioids cause more deaths in New Mexico than illegal drugs. Drug addiction, we must remember, is both a health problem and a crime problem — and it costs us money both ways. It makes communities less safe for all of us and wastes the lives that get caught in the criminal justice system. If there’s a serious chance that marijuana can help relieve pain and prevent needless tragedy, we ought to be openminded to that possibility.

Fix filibuster, but after fiscal cliff

Sen. Roy Blunt, R-Mo. suggested last week that Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, DNev., was “kicking over a hornet’s nest” by talking about changing Senate filibuster rules. The Republican was right, but it’s a nest that’s needed kicking for decades. Senators in the minority party — including Reid when he was in that position — generally oppose changing the filibuster rule back to where it stood before 1961. Back then, senators actually had to stand and talk to block legislation from moving. Gradually the rule was modified until, in 1975, it was changed to require a simple “cloture vote” of 60 senators to close debate and move legislation ahead. The rule was not widely abused until recent years. Increasingly, whatever party is in the minority now merely threatens a filibuster; without 60 votes, the majority can’t pass a cloture motion. The problem with changing the rule back to the stand-and-talk option is that rule changes need 60 votes, too. But Reid argues that on the first day of any Congress — and the 113th Congress convenes Jan. 3 — the Senate can change its rules by a simple majority of 51 votes. Democrats will have 55 seats in the next Congress. Reid argued against that so-called “nuclear option” in 2005 when Republicans threatened to invoke it. So did a freshman Democrat from Illinois named Barack Obama. Talk of mass destruction is intended to scare voters into thinking that the majority is trying to turn the so-called world’s greatest deliberative body into a rhetorical wasteland. Right now filibuster talk is a distraction. Reid and his cohorts should be focused entirely on fixing the “fiscal cliff,” negotiating a bipartisan compromise on a combination of revenue increases and budget cuts that would avoid the combination of fiscal crises that loom at year’s end. Anything short of success in those negotiations could lead to more recession. To mix a metaphor, falling off the cliff is the real nuclear option. Like most debates in Congress, memories are short about arcane rules that determine how and when certain votes can come to the floor. Despite protestations from Blunt and others, the filibuster in its current form has not been a Senate staple since the Ford administration. The modern filibuster rules enable the Senate to work a Tuesday-through-Thursday week, leaving plenty of time for fundraising calls and trips back home on long weekends. Nobody has to stand and talk. Nobody has to set up cots in the Senate cloakroom. The filibuster isn’t reserved for big issues of national importance, as it once was by Southern Democrats trying to block civil rights legislation. No, the Republicans have used the filibuster to block discussion of nearly every issue imaginable. The numbers are compelling. There were more filibusters in the 111th Congress (2009 to 2010), then in the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s combined. In his six years as majority leader, Lyndon B. Johnson faced one filibuster, the aforementioned historic battle over civil rights. In his five years, Reid has faced 368 filibusters. This year, we suggested that the U.S. Senate follow the example of the Missouri Senate, which has a strong and effective filibuster rule. The rule changes proposed by Reid are quite similar to the way the filibuster works in Missouri. It would require senators to stand and hold the floor in order to block debate. Individual senators, of the minority party or not, will still be able to block legislation, they’ll just have to work harder at it and actually spend a bit of time on the floor instead of at cocktail parties and fundraisers. Fix the fiscal cliff first. But fix the filibuster, too. And fix the unfair Senate rule that allows a single senator to place an anonymous “hold” on legislation to keep it from reaching the floor for debate. The nation needs its senators to go to work and stop acting like prima donnas. Guest Editorial The St. Louis Post-Dispatch

Media likes to stir up panic With America’s “fiscal cliff” approaching, pundits wring their hands over the supposed catastrophe that government spending cuts will bring. A scare newsletter called “Food Poisoning Bulletin” warns that if government reduces food inspections, “food will be less safe ... (because) marginal companies ... (will) cut corners.” We’re going to die! Most people believe that without gover nment meat inspection, food would be filthy. We read “The Jungle,” Upton Sinclair’s depiction of the meatpacking business,


DEAR DOCTOR K: I hurt my toe and now the nail has tur ned black. What can I do? DEAR READER: Ouch — I’ve been there. A couple of years ago I was outdoors and turned around to walk in the opposite direction, and boom! My big toe hit a lamppost. At least my toe got there before my face did. A day or two later the toenail was black and blue, and the day after that it hurt a lot. What I had, and what you probably have, is blood under the nail, a condition called subungual hematoma. Treatment for a subungual hematoma involves

relieving pressure by draining the blood trapped under the nail. I vividly remember the first time I learned how to do it, as an intern in the emergency room. The patient was a weekend carpenter who had hammered a nail, but it wasn’t a metal nail: It was the nail on his left thumb. My supervising physi-

The scheming lawyers behind the “Food Poisoning Bulletin” argue that without regulation companies will “cut corners.” After all, they say, sanitation costs money, so lack of regulation “creates a competitive disadvantage for companies that want to produce quality products.” But that’s bunk. It’s not government that keeps E. coli to a minimum. It’s competition. Tyson Foods, Perdue and McDonald’s have brands to maintain — and customers to lose. Ask Jack in the Box. It lost millions after a food-poisoning scandal.

cian told me to unbend a paperclip, and to heat the sharp end and push it through the man’s thumbnail to burn a hole in the nail. I replied: “What is this, the 15th century? That’s barbaric!” My supervisor smiled and told me, “You’ll remember this learning experience for a long time, and your patient will be grateful.” And I have, and he was. Before the supervisor accompanied me into the patient’s room, he gave me one more piece of advice: “Explain what you’ll be doing, but don’t explain exactly how you’ll be doing See DR. K, Page A5

Fear of getting a bad reputation makes food producers even more careful than government requires. Since the Eisenhower administration, our stodgy government has paid an army of union inspectors to eyeball chickens in every single processing plant. But bacteria are invisible! Fortunately, food producers run much more sophisticated tests on their own. One employs 2,000 more safety inspectors than government requires: “To kill pathogens,

FHTNC—Navy Petty Officer 3rd Class Joshua D. Smith, son of Kimberly Procell of Dexter and Robin B. Smith of Yuma, Colo., assigned to Virginia-class attack submarine USS New Hampshire (SSN 778) returned to Naval Submarine Base New London in Groton, Conn., following a six-month deployment. The crew conducted months of specialized training prior to deployment. The training prepared USS New Hampshire to operate in some of the world's most complex operating environments. USS New Hampshire


departed for deployment March 13 and conducted maritime security and theater security cooperation efforts in the 6th Fleet area of operations. During their sixmonth deployment, while the USS New Hampshire steamed 36,000 nautical miles, the Sailors received many qualifications and promotions.

beef carcasses are treated with rinses and a 185-degree steam vacuum,” an executive told me. She also asked that I not reveal the name of her company — it fears retaliation from regulators. “Production facilities are checked for sanitation with microbiological testing. If anything is detected ... we re-clean the equipment. ... Equipment is routinely taken completely apart to be swab-tested.” None of that is required by government. Government regulation may help a little, but we are safe mostly because of competitive markets. Competition protects us better than politicians. But people don’t trust companies. So it is easy to scare people about food. And the news media know that finding “problems” makes reporters look like crusading journalists. Earlier this year, my old employer, ABC News, “alerted” the public to a new threat, ground beef made with “pink slime.” It sounds awful! ABC’s reporting frightened most school systems so much that they stopped using that form of meat. The food company lost 80 percent of its business. But the scare is bunk. What ABC calls “pink slime” is just as appetizing as other food. “Bunk is the polite word,” Dan Gainor of the Media Research Center says. “ABC went on a crusade. Three nights in a row back in March, they pounded on this.” Well, why shouldn’t they, if there’s something called “pink slime” in beef? “Because it’s not pink slime. It’s

it.” I explained to the patient the need to let the trapped blood out to relieve the pressure by making a hole in the nail. It would hurt for a second, but then he’d feel better. I asked the patient to lie down on the exam table with his head turned to the right, and his left thumb on the table, just next to his head. Then I heated the tip of the paperclip until it was orange and said, “OK, here goes.” Then I pushed the hot paperclip through the nail and blood spurted out. The patient shouted “Hey!” and I said, “OK, it’s done.” A minute later: “Doctor, thank you. That feels so much better.” I’ve subsequently met some mothers who tell me they’ve done this with their

ground beef.” Then how did this all get started? “A couple activists who used to work for the FDA didn’t like this really cool scientific process that separates the beef trimming so you get the remaining ground beef. So they coined this term deliberately to try to hurt this company.” The company, Beef Products Inc., does something unique. It takes the last bit of trim meat off the bone by heating it slightly. That saves money and arguably helps the environment — not using that meat would waste 5,000 cows a day. In 20 years, there is no record of anybody being hurt by what ABC and its activists call “pink slime” — what the industry just calls “lean beef trimmings” or “finely textured beef.” “Everybody constantly says, ‘You should eat leaner beef.’ So when we try to eat the leaner beef, then they take that away from us, too,” Gainor said. “The company ... has received awards for how good a job they do for consumer safety. It was just one constant hit job.” An effective one. After ABC’s reports, Beef Products Inc. closed three out of its four plants. Seven hundred workers lost jobs.

But I don’t advise doing it yourself. Sometimes large hematomas that turn the whole nail black and blue can mean the toe or finger is fractured, and a tetanus shot may be needed. Unfortunately, your nail injury is likely to be noticeable until the damaged nail grows out. For toenails, this can take about four months; fingernails usually regrow completely in about two months. If you’ve injured the base of your nail, some cosmetic changes may be per manent. But the pain will be gone, as the result of a “barbaric” but effective treatment.

Jazzman Dave Brubeck dead at 91

AP Photo

Kennedy Center honoree Dave Brubeck, Dec. 6, 2009.

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — Jazz composer and pianist Dave Brubeck, whose pioneering style in pieces such as “Take Five” caught listeners’ ears with exotic, challenging rhythms, has died. He was 91. Brubeck died Wednesday morning of heart failure after being stricken while on his way to a cardiology appointment with his son Darius, said his manager Russell Gloyd. Brubeck would have turned 92 today. Brubeck had a career that spanned almost all American jazz since World War II. He for med The Dave Brubeck Quartet in 1951 and was the first modern jazz musician to be pictured on the cover of Time magazine — on Nov. 8, 1954 — and he helped define the swinging, smoky rhythms of 1950s and ’60s club jazz. The seminal album “Time Out,” released by the quartet in 1959, was the first ever million-sell-

ing jazz LP, and is still among the best-selling jazz albums of all time. It features “Take Five,” which became the Quartet’s signature theme and even made the Billboard singles chart in 1961. It was composed by Brubeck’s longtime saxophonist, Paul Desmond. After service in World War II and study at Mills College in Oakland, Calif., Brubeck formed an octet including Desmond on alto sax and Dave van Kreidt on tenor, Cal Tjader on drums and Bill Smith on clarinet. The group played Brubeck originals and standards by other composers, including some early experimentation in unusual time signatures. Their groundbreaking album “Dave Brubeck Octet” was recorded in 1946. The group evolved into the Quartet, which played colleges and universities. In later years Brubeck composed music for operas, ballet, even a contemporary Mass. In the late 1980s, Brubeck contributed music for one episode of an eight-part series of television specials, “This Is America, Charlie Brown.” His music was for an episode involving NASA and the space station. He worked with three of his sons and included excerpts from his Mass “To Hope! A Celebration,” his oratorio “A Light in the Wilderness,” and a piece he had composed but never recorded, “Quiet As the Moon.” In 2006, the University of Notre Dame gave Brubeck its Laetare Medal, awarded each year to a Roman Catholic

“whose genius has ennobled the arts and sciences, illustrated the ideals of the church and enriched the heritage of humanity.” More acclaim came his way when it was announced that he would be a recipient of the Kennedy Center Honors at a ceremony in late 2009. Brubeck actually had planned to become a rancher like his father. He attended the College of the Pacific (now the University of the Pacific) in 1938, intending to major in veterinary medicine and return to the family’s 45,000-acre spread. But within a year Brubeck was drawn to music. He graduated in 1942 and was drafted by the Ar my, where he served, mostly as a musician, under Gen. George S. Patton in Europe. At the time, his Wolfpack Band was the only racially integrated unit in the military. In an interview for Ken Bur ns’ PBS miniseries “Jazz,” Brubeck talked about playing for troops with his integrated band, only to return to the U.S. to see his black bandmates refused service in a restaurant in Texas. In a 2010 interview, he envisioned an afterlife where he’d again see his family and jazz friends, including Louis Ar mstrong, Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Stan Kenton, Woody Herman and Art Tatum. “If there’s a heaven,” Brubeck said, “let it be a good place for all of us to jam together and have a wonder ful, wonder ful musical experience.”

Prez to ask for $50B Sandy aid

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama plans to ask Congress for about $50 billion in additional emergency aid for states hit by Superstorm Sandy, Democrats on Capitol Hill said Wednesday. Housing Secretary Shaun Donovan told a Senate Appropriations subcommittee that the administration is still working on a request for a supplemental spending bill to provide the aid and expects to send it to Congress this week. The price tag is expected to be anywhere between $45 billion and $55 billion. Two Senate Democratic

aides, speaking on condition of anonymity because the request is still being assembled, put the number in the neighborhood of $50 billion. Donovan urged Congress to take action in “the next few weeks” on the administration’s upcoming request. On Tuesday, the head of the Federal Emergency Management Agency, Craig Fugate, said the government’s disaster relief fund still has $4.8 billion, enough to pay for recovery efforts into early spring. So far the gover nment has spent about $2 billion in the 11 states struck the

late October storm, one of the worst ever in the Northeast.

New York, New Jersey and Connecticut are together seeking about $83 billion in aid. Donovan described that figure as more of damage estimate, saying some might be covered by private insurance and other already-funded government programs.

Given the recent budget talks and the strong pressures against new spending, Congress is not expected to approve large amounts of additional money all at once.

Dennis Ray Howell

CLOVIS — Dennis Ray Howell, 59, of Tucumcari, passed away on Tuesday, Nov. 27, 2012, at the Dr. Dan C. T rigg Memorial Hospital in Tucumcari. Dennis was born to the home of James and Jo Ann Howell in Minden, La., on Dec. 3, 1952. He loved to fish and was a talented woodworker. He had a great love for animals. He was also a voting member of the Church in Baptist Louisiana since he was 12 years old. He is survived by his longtime companion Frances Howell, of the home; his only daughter Sarah Marie Young, of Brooklyn, N.Y.; his sister Jo Ann Howell, of Tucumcari; one brother, Terry Howell, of Roswell; his niece Jo Ann Howell, of Tucumcari; and one nephew Matthew Howell, of Tucumcari. He is preceded in death by his mother Jo Ann Vickers Howell; his father James Lee Howell; and his brother Allen Howell. Cremation has taken place and services have been held. Arrangements are under the care and direction of Steed-Todd Funeral Home and Crematory, 800 E. Manana Blvd., Clovis, New Mexico (575) 763-5541. You may sign the online

Jimmy Derrell Dean was bor n Jan. 18, 1946, in Artesia, to Thomas Derrell Dean and Charlie Rozell Kimmons Dean. He passed away peacefully Wednesday, Nov. 28, 2012, in Lubbock, Texas. Cremation has taken place. He was preceded in death by his parents and his foster father Jack Merritt. He is survived by his wife Holly Gardner Dean, of the home in Denver City, Texas. He had three daughters from his first marriage, Janell Orona, her sons Robert, R yan, Jacob and Jordan; Kayla Dean; and Amanda Chihuahua, husband Art, and daughter Katelynn. He is also survived by one adopted son Clayton Riley McBryde, wife Mica, sons Riley, Clayton and Johnny, daughters Kambree and Raelynn; one adopted daughter Kelly Zane Miller, husband Cody and daughter Cheyenne. He has three brothers and one sister, Charles Dean and wife Donna, Donald Dean and wife Cooky, Jeff Dean, sister Janis and husband John Dozier. Jimmy graduated from Artesia High School, with a lot of help and encouragement from his adopted aunt, Mim Teague. He was drafted into the Army after high school and spent much of his service duty as an instructor in Washington, D.C., during the Vietnam conflict. He had several jobs in early life, ending up working at Enterprise Products, a propane pipeline, for 28 years. Jimmy loved life and rarely had a cross word for anyone. He loved and felt most at home in the mountains and went there at every opportunity. Some of his ashes will be scattered


at his favorite places in the Sacramento and Guadalupe mountains, as well as his secret place in the Colorado Rockies. He was very creative and loved to tool leather. He had a studio in his sunroom at home and made many items for people he loved. He was diagnosed with multiple myeloma, a type of bone marrow cancer, in 2007. He underwent two stem cell transplants and a multitude of chemotherapies and radiation treatments in an effort to control it. He never lost heart during all the treatments he chose. He did no complaining. During the last two years of his life, he and his caregiver and wife Holly, spent a lot of quality time at American Cancer Society’s Hope Lodge of Lubbock. It is a residence for people away from home undergoing cancer treatments. It is our wish that memorials for him go there (3411 10th St., Lubbock, TX 79415). We felt enormous love and care at Hope Lodge. Many thanks to the medical personnel and friends who helped us on this journey. Love and hugs and kisses to his adopted daughter Kelly Zane, for putting her life and husband on hold, coming here with her nursing baby to live with us, and helping care for Jimmy and driving with him back and forth to Lubbock for treatments every day for weeks. It was remarkable. We were blessed with a cocoon of love. May goodness and mercy and honor follow his memory throughout eternity. A full funeral with military honors and interment of his ashes will be announced at a later date by his next of kin, his wife Holly Dean.

Michael Strahan makes his Broadway debut in ‘Elf’ N E W Y OR K ( AP ) — Michael Strahan has tackled something few football stars have attempted — Broadway. The gap-toothed co-host of “L i v e w it h K e l l y a n d Michael” made three short appearances at Wednesday’s matinee of “Elf” and said he has new respect for Broadway performers. “I was surprised at how nervous you get and the adrenaline and that feedback from the audience — it really was an amazing thing,” the former football player said after the show. “To see these performers wh o d o i t eve r y da y — eight or nine times a week — is really amazing. I take my hat off to them.” Fans can see a behindt h e - sc en e s r e c a p on Thursday’s TV show. The musical is adapted from the Will Ferrell film from 2003 about Buddy, a h u m a n rai se d i n t h e North Pole who travels to New York in search of his parents. Strahan thought making his Broadway debut would be fun and represented a new experience for a guy who holds the single season sack record. He f o u n d h i m s e l f m o r e nervous than he has been for high-stakes football games or live TV. “ I t ’ s a l it tl e n er v e -

As he waited in the wings of the Al Hirschfeld Theatre, he saw the toll the musical takes on its dancers. “Some of these performe r s a r e b r e at h i n g a s i f they just went into a football game and played a 12-play drive,” he joked. “I was tired walking up and down fr om my dressing room.” Strahan rehearsed for

Strahan was named in September as Kelly Ripa’s permanent co-host aboard the mor ning show “Live with Kelly and Michael.” A former defensive star who spent 15 years in the NFL, he is also a host of “Fox NFL Sunday.” He follows in the footst ep s of Joe N am at h , a

Gap widens between Denver, Oakland Section

Roswell Daily Record

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Just a year ago, Denver and Oakland went to the end of the season in the race for the AFC West title, with the Broncos edging the Raiders for first place on the final day by winning a three-team tiebreaker with San Diego. Now the teams couldn’t be further apart. The Broncos (9-3) are riding a seven-game winning streak into tonight’s game in Oakland having


already wrapped up the division title. They are spending the last month worried about playoff positioning and staying healthy for the postseason. The Raiders (3-9) have lost five straight and have been eliminated from playoff contention for a 10th straight season as the franchise has regressed in the first year of the new regime led by general manager Reggie McKenzie and coach Dennis Allen.

Cowboys lagging on INTs despite new cornerbacks See TITLE, Page B3

IRVING, Texas (AP) — Dallas cornerback Morris Claiborne probably figured his first NFL touchdown would come on an interception. The rookie had to settle for a fumble return because the picks have been a little hard to come by for the Cowboys. After trading up eight spots to take Claiborne at No. 6 in this year’s draft and committing at least $26 million to free agent Brandon Carr, Dallas is last in the league with five interceptions and the only team without a player who has at least two heading into Sunday’s game at Cincinnati. “We certainly want to create more takeaways,” coach Jason Garrett said. “There’s no question about that.” Dallas scored three defensive


EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) — DaVon Haynes got a chance to play relatively close to his hometown of Detroit. He might have been too fired up for the opportunity. The Arkansas-Pine Bluff forward had three fouls in an 18-second stretch early in the game, leading to his team going scoreless for nearly 10 minutes against No. 19 Michigan State in a 76-44 loss Wednesday night. “When he got in foul trouble in the first half, it really hurt us,” coach George Ivory said. After watching the last 17:49 of the first half from the bench, Haynes scored a season-high 20 points in the second half. “It means a lot to come home to get an opportunity to play, especially at a venue like this,” Ivory said. “It was great for them to get home to see family and friends.” The Golden Lions (1-7) don’t get much of a chance to play in front of fellow students. They haven’t had a home game in Pine Bluff, Ark., yet this season and won’t until Jan. 2, against Mississippi Valley State. “We’ve kind of gotten used to it,” Ivory said. “I don’t think we’ve played a home game the last five years in the nonconference.” Michigan State (7-2) has won 69 straight home games against unranked nonconference teams. Garry Harris scored 13 points, Travis Trice had 12 and Branden Dawson added 10 for the Spartans. They started the game with a 14-0 run, led 38-12 at halftime and kept a comfortable lead in the second half.

“It’s definitely disappointing. Coming into the season, we had a new GM, had a new coaching staff and it felt like the sky was the limit, but for some reason — obviously, we had a lot of injuries — but for some reason, we haven’t been on the same page the whole season,” defensive back Michael Huff said. “The defense has had their struggles, the offense has

touchdowns in two games against the Eagles, including Claiborne’s 50-yard fumble return in Sunday’s 38-33 win. In the first meeting, Carr had a 47-yard interception return and Jason Hatcher recovered a fumble at the goal line after a sack in a 38-23 Dallas win. “We believe that turnovers and takeaways are a team thing,” Garrett said. “So everybody’s involved, pressuring the quarterback, tipping the ball, all of those things come into play. And certainly when you have a chance to make them, you’ve got to make them.” Dallas had to make them, actually. The Cowboys had allowed four straight scoring drives by Philadelphia before Morris’ fumble return. The previous game against Washington, the Cowboys watched the Redskins score four touchdowns in a quarter for the first time in 13 years. Four starters are out for the year, and the Dallas defense slipped out

No. 18 New Mexico rallies for 75-67 win over USC ALBUQUERQUE (AP) — Hugh Greenwood hit five 3-pointers and finished with 17 points to help No. 18 New Mexico recover from an early double-digit deficit to beat Southern Cal 75-67 on Wednesday night. Alex Kirk added a double-double for the Lobos (90) with 13 points and 13 rebounds, while Kendall Williams had 13 points and a season-high nine assists. Five Trojans scored in double figures, led by 14 from Eric Wise, but USC (3-5) still lost its fourth straight. Midway through the first half, the Trojans used a 7-0 run to take their largest lead at 28-18, but New Mexico immediately responded with a 15-2 run to go up 33-30 and the Lobos never trailed again. Behind two 3-pointers from Greenwood, including one at the shot-clock buzzer with 5 seconds left in the half, the Lobos went into halftime on a 10-2 run to lead 4334. AP Photo

Chiefs players pay respects to Belcher at service Last week (Overall)

1-0 (74-19)

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Heads bowed, somber past and present Kansas City Chiefs players turned out Wednesday for a memorial service for teammate Jovan Belcher, who killed his girlfriend and then himself over the weekend. Belcher fatally shot 22-year-old Kasandra Perkins on Saturday at the Kansas City home they shared with their 3-month-old daughter, Zoey. He then drove to the Chiefs practice facility at Arrowhead Stadium, where coach Romeo Crennel, general manager Scott Pioli and defensive assistant Gary Gibbs witnessed Belcher commit suicide. The team moved up its practice schedule so that players could attend Wednesday afternoon’s service at the nearby Landmark International Deliverance and Worship Center, where Belcher and Perkins worshipped. The media wasn’t allowed inside. Afterward, a coffin was wheeled from the building and driven away in a hearse. Retired Chiefs Hall of Famer Bobby Bell said Pioli and an uncle of Belcher’s spoke during the service. “It’s done and over with and people need to get on with their lives, and the team needed to try to get forward,” Bell said. “It’s tough on them. When you see somebody and play with them you’re buddies, friends.” Many of the players boarded coach buses after the service, but a few walked to their own vehicles with their wives and girlfriends. “It was good,” running back Peyton Hillis said of the service.

wouldn’t comment further. Defensive end Ropatisp Pitoitua, kicker R yan Succop, and linebacker Derrick Johnson said they didn’t want to be interviewed. Before the service, veteran offensive lineman Ryan Lilja said he hoped the memorial would provide some closure for the Chiefs, who will try to win their second straight game Sunday at Cleveland. “You got to try to deal with it however you deal with it, and grieve the best way for the individual,” he said, “and I think this is the best way for us as a team to get closure and move on and focus on football.” Lilja said some players have taken advantage of counseling services that have been provided by the Chiefs and the NFL and that there’s been a change in the atmosphere around the team building. “There definitely is more, ‘How you doing? How you feeling? How you coping?”’ Lilja said. “There’s definitely more of that, and people leaning on each other, and be an ear when they need it. Guys are going to deal with this on an individual basis.” Pastor Sylvarena Funderburke, who serves at Repairers of the Breach Christian Center in Kansas City, said she was at the service to sing “I Won’t Complain,” a song the Belcher family requested. “It is an honor. We don’t always understand why things happen,” she said before the service. “That’s when you have to rely on your faith and just trust God to give you strength to make it through tough times.”

NBA fines Gerald Wallace $5,000 for flopping

NEW YORK (AP) — Brooklyn Nets forward Gerald Wallace has been fined $5,000 by the NBA for flopping, joining teammate Reggie Evans as the only repeat offenders under the league’s new penalty system. The league also gave Clippers veteran Chauncey Billups a warning Wednesday for falling backward after launching a jumper against Utah with little or no contact. Wallace was defending a driving LeBron James on Saturday in Miami when he went tumbling backward after James put his right hand on Wallace’s body while dribbling with his left. Wallace had previously been warned for a flop against New York on Nov. 26. The league defines flopping as “any physical act that appears to have been intended to cause the referees to call a foul on another player.” Players are warned for a first offense, with fines beginning at $5,000 for the second flop up to $30,000 for a fifth. Seven players have been determined to have flopped after review by NBA officials. Evans is the only other player to be caught twice.

Kansas City Chiefs players arrive at a memorial service for Kansas City’s Jovan Belcher at the Landmark International Deliverance and Worship Center, Wednesday.

Karen Young, who belongs to the Landmark church and serves as an usher, said Belcher and Perkins went to the church “practically” every week until the baby was born but hadn’t been seen much since then. Larry Brown, who also attends the Landmark church, said Belcher was “gentle” and “caring” and Perkins “a real nice person.”

“I believed that they were made for each other,” said Brown, whose brother is the church’s leader, Bishop John L. Brown. “They didn’t appear to be the type of people who just put on facades. They were very happy. She was very genuine. Every time I saw them, they were always laughing.” The barber shop where Belcher was a regular is in the same strip

John Elway and coach John Fox. The biggest change came when they acquired quarterback Peyton Manning to replace pedestrian passer Tim Tebow. But nearly 20 other players acquired since Elway took over the football operations have started games this season, including standout defensive star Von Miller, who has 26 1/2 sacks in less than two seasons. “It’s been a lot of hard work by a lot of people whether it’s personnel department, the coaching staff, the players in the locker


room,” Fox said. “As far as the offseason I know a lot was made of Peyton Manning but we had a lot of other guys that have been big contributors to this football team as well. But, you know, anything worth a darn takes time to build and so we just in year two of that process.” The acquisition accelerated it. He has come back from a neck injury that sidelined him all last season to set a Denver record with 29 touchdown passes. The addition of a dangerous passing game to complement a strong defense led by pass rushers Miller and Elvis Dumervil and a solid running game have made the Broncos legitimate contenders in the AFC.

of the top 10 after the Eagles gained 423 yards with rookies at quarterback and running back. Improving the minus-10 turnover ratio might be the only way for the Cowboys (6-6) to stay in the playoff race — or more games where the Dallas offense matches all the scoring drives, like it did against Philadelphia. “We can’t use (injuries) as an excuse, but I feel like that plays a big part in it,” Claiborne said. “We just have to count on those guys to come in and get the job done. And ... we’ve been compensating for each other all year, from the offense to the defense. Every time we gave up a touchdown, they came back and scored a

And winning it means beating Los Lunas on Friday at Tigers Stadium. “We’re sure going to try (to win it). I don’t know what anybody can predict or say about the future ... but I know the kids have worked hard to get where they are,” Jernigan said. “They’ve learned an awful lot of football and all those lessons need to come together for one good ballgame.” To have one good ballgame, the Rockets have to slow a Los Lunas offense that is averaging nearly 42 points per game behind standouts Chris Wisneski, Jalen Chavez and Darron


They clinched the division last week and are tied with New England and Baltimore for second place in the conference and a first-round playoff bye. “I think our team realizes what a unique opportunity we have and we are trying to take advantage of it,” Manning said. “Those are the kind of guys you want to be around.” It might be natural for the Broncos to overlook the struggling Raiders team that hasn’t led a game at any point the past four weeks, especially with a potentially key playoff positioning game the following week in Baltimore. But with big-play running back Darren McFadden expected to return and the intensity of a divi-

touchdown to keep us in the game.” The Cowboys aren’t anywhere close to the bottom of the league in turnover ratio — that would be Kansas City at minus-21 — but only three players expected to suit up against the Bengals have an interception. Danny McCray, who was supposed to be a backup safety while focusing on special teams, has one along with Carr and Claiborne. The others belong to linebacker Sean Lee — out for the year with a toe injury — and safety Charlie Peprah, a midseason injury replacement who might not make it back this season because of a foot injury. The turnover ratio for Dallas might be worse if not for eight fumbles, about in the middle of the NFL pack. “We just have to stop them from scor-

Gallegos. Combined, the three account for 89.6 percent of Los Lunas’ 3,925 offensive yards this year. Under center, Wisneski has thrown for 1,222 yards and 19 touchdowns while completing 58.2 percent of his passes and has rushed for 358 yards and five scores. “He’s quick, a lot like some of the ones we’ve seen. He’s a real fast quarterback, so if you miss a tackle, you’re probably going to pay for it,” Jernigan said about Wisneski. “He has the ability to outrun you and he makes a lot of good plays. He throws the ball well enough to where you have to cover passes, which they try to establish. “I think he does a good

job of making the plays and getting the ball to the guys he’s supposed to. And he’s got a pretty good supporting cast.” The supporting cast includes Chavez and Gallegos in the backfield and Chris Sanchez and Jacob Holland at the wideouts. Chavez and Gallegos are a for midable duo in Los Lunas’ option offense. “The tailback (Chavez) and the fullback (Gallegos), both of them are pretty good,” said Jernigan. “The fullback ... he runs hard inside. The tailback, he’s just like the quarterback, real fast. You’ve got to wrap up every single time.” Chavez leads the Tigers in rushing with 1,368 yards and 18 TDs on 137 carries and Gallegos is second with 570 yards and

Thursday, December 6, 2012 sion rivalry, Fox has preached all week to his players to avoid that trap. “You can’t look at their record; you’ve got to look at their film,” safety Rahim Moore said. “They have big-time playmakers. They have speed all over the field, a great running back in Darren McFadden. ... Even though this is a team that’s shuffling on paper, that doesn’t mean they can’t make plays. Just because we’ve been winning doesn’t mean they’re going to give us a victory. They’re going to come play us hard. It’s the NFL. Don’t ever take anybody lightly in anything you do.” The Raiders will be playing the game with heavy hearts. Allen,

ing,” linebacker Anthony Spencer said. “Any way we can do it — interceptions, fumbles, three-and-outs, six plays and out. Any way we can get off the field, that’s how we’ve got to get it done.” In the first game against the Eagles, Claiborne was beaten on a highlight-reel touchdown catch by Riley Cooper and penalized five times, including twice for offsides, an almost inexplicable flag for a defensive back. “I’ve been a cornerback for quite a while and I learned in college that things are going to happen and you have to move on from it,” Claiborne said. “But that game was a big teaching game for me. I felt like it was just growing pains for me, just growing up and learning everything in the NFL.” The two Philadelphia games were the nine scores on 98 tries. Sanchez leads the team in receiving yards and touchdowns with 361 and seven, respectively. Holland is next with 251 and four. Chavez also has 246 yards and three scores receiving. Jer nigan has a lot of respect for Los Lunas and its coaching staff, which includes former Goddard player Mike Baca. “Coach Newton is doing a really good job over there,” he said. “Their kids are well-disciplined, they’re playing hard and they’ve got a good-looking crew of kids. “They hustle to the ball. They’re doing all the things you’re supposed to be doing to be where they are.” Jernigan has dissected


the defensive coordinator in Denver last season, has been away from the team all week because the death of his father, Grady. The players have talked about rallying behind their coach this week. They are searching for any kind of motivation after all their real goals disappeared during the five-game losing streak. “You just play for pride,” Huff said. “We don’t want to go out there and get embarrassed Thursday night. Our family, friends, high school coaches, little league coaches, everybody will be watching us. If you don’t want to not get embarrassed you should not be playing this game.”

opposite for Carr. His biggest moment in Dallas was the interception return for a score last month, whereas he hardly wanted to be on field Sunday night against the Eagles because of the murder -suicide in Kansas City involving Chiefs linebacker Jovan Belcher, his teammate just a year ago, and Belcher’s girlfriend. Carr knew the couple well. Carr, who signed a $50 million deal over five years, was beaten by Cooper for a touchdown early, just as Claiborne was three weeks earlier. He finished with just one tackle. “I can handle the scrutiny,” Carr said. “I’m in a position where I’m fair game to everybody. I can handle whatever they have to say. All I can do is come every day, keep getting better and keep working.”

Los Lunas in every way imaginable, but, to him, his team’s chances of winning come back to another one of his favorite phrases. Focus on what you can control. “It’s not really any different. It’s just a dif ferent challenge. They’re a really good football team and we’ve seen some pretty good football teams,” he said. “Every one of those good football teams that we played against could beat us, and so could this one. “We’re going to have to focus on what we can do. That’s what we try to do every week.” He’s confident that his team is confident. “I think it’s like it is every game. I think it’s a quiet confidence. That’s kind of how we do things anyway.

The kids know the upsides and they know the downsides,” he said. “They also know that they’ve played against some pretty good football teams. I hope the kids are confident enough to believe in themselves and know that they can play football with some really good teams.” And his team is very well aware of its situation and what is at stake on Friday. “They are very well aware that it is a state championship,” he said. “We talk about that all the time, you can’t win it until you’re in it. Now we’re in it. They know very well what is at stake. “It’s where you wanted to be and now you’ve got one more step to get the goal you wanted. They know that.”

Tebow says ribs improving, throws more at practice

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) — T im Tebow hopes he’s healthy enough for a happy homecoming. The New York Jets’ backup quarterback is still recovering from two broken ribs that have kept him out of the last two games. The team is playing Tebow’s hometown Jaguars in Jacksonville on Sunday — the first time he’ll play there as a pro since his rookie season with Denver in 2010. “I have a lot of family and friends who will be there,” Tebow said Wednesday. “Jacksonville will always be a special place to me. It’s where I grew up and where a lot of my family still calls home. It will be a lot of fun.” Whether it’s from the field or the sideline remains uncertain. Tebow was limited again at practice, but said he was able to throw passes at full force for the first time

in a few weeks. “It’s getting close,” he said. “It’s getting a lot closer.” Tight end Dustin Keller sat out practice with a sprained left ankle, while rookie wide receiver Stephen Hill was out with a knee injury. Wide receiver Clyde Gates also did not participate while recovering from a concussion. Running back Joe McKnight (ankle, ribs), guard Brandon Moore (hip) and nose tackle Sione Pouha (back) were limited. Tebow was injured at Seattle on Nov. 11, and played three offensive snaps the following week at St. Louis. He was active but Rex Ryan kept him on the sideline — to be used only in “an emergency” — against New England after the quarterback convinced the coach he could play following a pregame evaluation. Despite being medically cleared, Tebow

was inactive last Sunday against Arizona because he still wasn’t completely healed. “I just try to do what the trainers and doctors say and what the coach asks me to do,” he said. “That’s all I can control.” Tebow had X-rays taken Sunday that showed “some healing, but still fractures,” and will have a new set taken later in the week to make sure things are progressing. “It’s not 100 percent,” he said, “but I can still throw OK.” If cleared by doctors and made active by Ryan, Tebow will be the backup to Mark Sanchez, whom Ryan announced Wednesday would remain the starter. After Sanchez struggled and was benched in favor of third-stringer Greg McElroy in the Jets’ 7-6 win over Arizona last Sunday, Ryan took a few days to make his decision. While it appears Tebow was never really

in the mix for the start, R yan said he would be Sanchez’s backup Sunday. “I know he can play and I know he’s been cleared to play, but I don’t believe he’s been healthy for what I think he should be,” R yan said. “If that was my son, I would not want him playing, and that’s how I look at this. But if he was completely healthy, then Tim would be our No. 2.” Tebow nearly became a member of the Jaguars, who along with the Jets were interested in trading for the popular quarterback last offseason. While he has been used in a limited role in New York, he insists he has no regrets about playing for the Jets. “I would have loved to play for both organizations, but I am a Jet,” Tebow said. “I’m glad I’m a Jet. I’m looking forward to this game and going back home.”

B. Griner leads No. 3 Baylor women over No. 5 Irish

SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) — Brittney Griner had 24 points and 14 rebounds, three other Baylor players scored in double figures and the third-ranked Lady Bears beat No. 5 Notre Dame 7361 Wednesday night in a repeat of last season’s national championship game. The Fighting Irish could do little to slow Griner, who was 10 of 16 from the floor. The Lady Bears (7-1), with all five starters back from the team that went 40-0 last season, used a 10-0 run late in the second half to pull away. The Irish (5-1), with just two starters back, were simply no match, especially with All-America senior Skylar Diggins struggling on 4-of-19 shooting — with rapper Lil Wayne sitting courtside to cheer her on in the second half. Odsyssey Sims returned after missing four games with a hamstring injury and added 16 points for Baylor. Brooklyn Pope had 14 points and Jordan Madden 12.

Freshman Jewell Loyd led Notre Dame with a seasonhigh 24 points, Kayla McBride had 16 and Natalie Achonwa 11. The Lady Bears dominated inside, outscoring the Irish 36-26 in the paint and outrebounding them 44-35. Baylor also held the Irish to 36-percent shooting while making 49 percent of its shots. Diggins drove inside to give the Irish a 50-49 lead with 8:19 left, but Griner responded with a three-point play. After Diggins scored again, Madden hit a layup to spark a 10-0 run, which included six points from Sims. Sims’ first basket during the spurt came on an inbound pass which she bounced off the back of Notre Dame’s Natalie Achonwa before grabbing the ball and scoring. She capped the run with another basket and the Irish never got closer than seven after that. Lil Wayne showed up at halftime to cheer for Diggins

and her teammates, with Diggins walking over to shake his hand in his frontrow seat after a timeout. At the front row at the other end were members of the top-ranked Fighting Irish football team, who cheered loudly throughout. But despite the celebrities and a sellout crowd of 9,149, the Irish couldn’t knock off the defending national champions as the men did six days earlier against Kentucky on the same floor. Notre Dame got off to a fast start, forcing nine turnovers in the first 12 minutes and opening a 2011 lead when Loyd hit a 3pointer. But a layup by Pope with 5:36 left ignited a 14-0 Baylor run. Pope scored eight points during the spurt and Griner added six, while the Irish missed six straight shots to allow the Lady Bears to open a 31-23 lead. Baylor led 33-27 at the half, the same six-point margin the Bears led by at halftime in the championship game.

Senate to take up bill normalizing Russia trade

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Senate on Wednesday took up legislation that would end four-decade-old trade restrictions that are blocking U.S. businesses from enjoying the benefits of a more open Russian market. The bill is coupled with a measure that imposes sanctions on Russian human rights violators and has drawn sharp criticism from Russian officials. Senate approval of legislation to establish permanent, normal trade relations with Russia would send the measure to President Barack Obama for his signature and accomplish one of the major trade goals of American companies eying greater exports and investments in Russia. The House passed the legislation last month on a 365-43 vote. Russia on Aug. 22 formally entered the World Trade Organization, requiring it to

lower its import tariffs, better protect intellectual property and provide greater foreign access to its service industry. But unless Congress gets rid of existing trade restrictions and makes normal trade relations permanent, U.S. companies cannot enjoy the new trade rules available to the WTO’s other 155 members. There’s already concern among U.S. companies that they will fall further behind Chinese and European competitors in gaining shares of Russia’s growing market of 140 million consumers. On the other hand, the Obama administration predicts that U.S. exports of goods and services, currently at $11 billion, could double in five years if trade relations are normalized. A final vote on the legislation was expected on Thursday. The last apparent hurdle to Senate action on the

can be passed. Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev last week said that while his government welcomed the normalizing of trade, “we absolutely dislike its link with another legislation.” He said Congress, in attaching the human rights provision, was “making a big mistake” and that Russia would respond. The human rights provision is named for Sergei Magnitsky, a Russian lawyer and whistle-blower who died in a Russian prison three years ago after allegedly being tortured. The Moscow government has voiced strong opposition to the Magnitsky language, saying it would increase tensions between the two countries and hinting at retaliation. The trade bill eliminates the Jackson-Vanik amendment to a 1974 trade bill that tied trade with the

measure came with a decision to accept the House version of human rights legislation that was attached to the trade bill. Partly in response to lawmakers critical of normalizing trade with Russia at a time when the Moscow government has taken hostile positions toward the United States and pursued antidemocratic policies at home, a provision was attached that would sanction those involved in human rights violations. The House barred Russian human rights violators from receiving visas and froze their U.S.-based financial assets. In the Senate version, the measure applied to human rights violators around the world. On Tuesday Sen. Ben Cardin, D-Md., who authored the Senate version, indicated that he was willing to accept the House approach so that the bill

Soviet Union to greater freedom for Jews and other Soviet minorities to emigrate. Although the amendment has long outlived its pur-

pose and is now annually waived by presidents, it has never been removed from the books, preventing the establishment of permanent normal trade relations.

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Democratic chairwoman of the Senate Agriculture Committee says she is willing to consider higher cuts to the food stamp program in an effort to include a massive five-year farm bill in negotiations on the so-called fiscal cliff. Sen. Debbie Stabenow, DMich., said that cuts to the food stamp program beyond the $4 billion over 10 years included in a Senate-passed farm bill “are something I am willing to talk about.” A farm bill passed by the House Agriculture Committee would include $16 billion in cuts over the same amount of time. Both amounts are relatively small in relation to the program’s total estimated cost — almost $800 billion over the next decade — but Stabenow’s willingness to move on an issue long sacred to Democrats shows progress in negotiations as farm-state leaders scramble to get the bill done before the end of the year. Stabenow and House Agriculture

Chairman Frank Lucas, ROkla., met this week in hopes of reconciling their two versions of the bill. The farm bill could be part of a deal to avert the combination of tax increases and automatic spending cuts due in January — dubbed the fiscal cliff because the combination could plunge the economy into another recession — because it saves money. A farm bill passed by the Senate in June would save a total of $23 billion over 10 years, while a version approved by the House Agriculture Committee in July would save $35 billion over the same period. Those total savings include the cuts to food stamps and also from farm subsidies. Stabenow said in an interview with The Associated Press Wednesday that she is also open to increasing the savings from $23 billion, saying it “depends on the policy.”

Government acting against baby recliner maker Ag chair says she’s open to more food stamp cuts WASHINGTON (AP) — The government is taking action against the makers of a portable baby recliner called the Nap Nanny after five infant deaths. The Consumer Product Safety Commission filed an administrative complaint Wednesday alleging that the new model of the Nap Nanny, called the Chill, and two earlier versions “pose a substantial risk of injury and death to infants.” The commission is seeking an order that would require Nap Nanny maker Baby Matters LLC of Berwyn, Pa., to notify the public about what the agency deems a serious product defect. The agency also wants the company to of fer consumers a full refund. Baby Matters went out of business a month ago, according to an email from the company. On its website is a message from owner and founder Leslie Gudel that says, “We do

The Nap Nanny should be placed on the floor with the harness secured. The first two versions of the foam recliner were recalled in July 2010 when the agency was aware of one death and 22 reports of infants hanging out or falling over the side of the Nap Nanny even though most of the infants had been placed in the recliner’s harness. Since then, the agency has learned of 4 more deaths. Four are linked to the first versions of the recliner, and

DONNA IN VIRGINIA


DEAR ABBY: Alzheimer’s and other dementias are a growing epidemic in America. Frequently, co-workers are the ones who notice a decline in functioning. Could you please remind your readers to speak up to a family member when they see their co-workers struggling? My 62-year -old husband was recently diagnosed, and I have since learned that his co-workers spotted his troubles long before I did at home. Had I been informed, he could possibly have retired on disability and

DEAR DONNA: I’m sorry about your husband’s diagnosis. Although there have been warnings that it was coming for years, the Alzheimer’s epidemic is here now and millions more families will be touched by this progressive — and ultimately fatal — disease unless its course can be altered. As you have so poignantly stated, there are benefits to the early detection of Alzheimer’s, including the opportunity to

take advantage of available treatments, leverage resources in the workplace, plan for the future and seek help. According to the Alzheimer’s Association, knowing the warning signs of Alzheimer’s and speaking up when you notice them are CRITICAL to early detection and receiving the best possible care. To learn the 10 Early Signs and Symptoms of Alzheimer’s, visit or call 1800-272-3900. DEAR ABBY: Twenty years ago, my brother told me his wife had been having an affair. Needless to say, they divorced and I sided with my brother. A few days ago, I learned that my brother was actually the one who had been having the affair. He and his current wife had a child they claimed was her first husband’s, and when they married he “adopted” all of her chil-

Today’s Crossword Puzzle

Dear Heloise: Our golden retriever ended up in the pet-hospital emergency room. We found her in the kitchen, drooling profusely and surrounded by vomit and diarrhea. As my husband rushed her out the door, I stayed to clean up and called him when I noticed pieces and whole MUSHROOMS in the vomit. She had mushroom toxicity from mushrooms she had found growing in the backyard after a lot of rain. Please warn your readers to check their yards so this doesn’t happen to their pet. We were lucky we found her in time! Laura D., via email Consider it done! Unfortunately, it can take as little as one poisonous mushroom to be fatal! Readers, be sure to regularly check your yard for mushrooms and remove them when found. Make it a habit, like cleaning up after your pet. Place a bag over your hand and pull the mushrooms completely out of the ground. Don’t hit the mushroom, or it can send more spores into the air, causing more mushrooms to grow! Heloise


For Better or For Worse



Dear Heloise: I am an elderly widower living alone in a one-family house. I have placed an electric candle lamp on the windowsill facing my neighbor’s house. I turn it on when I go to bed and turn it off when I rise in the morning. This procedure assures my caring neighbor that I am alive and well each day. W.W. in New Hampshire

Dear Heloise: Gift bags can be pricey. I hang on to cereal boxes or cracker boxes when the contents are gone. I cover them in plastic adhesive paper that has designs on it. I cut the paper into 2-inch squares to cover the boxes because it is more manageable and has no air bubbles. When finished, I punch two holes on the two sides at the top and put ribbon through the holes for handles. The gift boxes turn out so cute. Every time I give one to someone, he or she likes the gift box as much as the gift inside, and it has hardly cost anything! Dawn B. in San Antonio

Dear Heloise: I have one drawer in my dresser for all my underclothes and miscellaneous items, like scarves, swimsuits and tights. It was overflowing. My solution was to take my swimsuits and summer items from the drawer, put them inside an old backpack and hang it on a hanger in the closet for the winter. When summer comes back around, I’ll swap my swimsuits for the scarves and tights. H.D., via email

10 Texas A&M (63-21), No. 6 Georgia (38-0) and No. 2 Alabama (490) and also had center Reese Dismukes and freshman quarterback Zeke Pike arrested for public intoxication over the summer. Chizik dismissed Pike from the team. Search committee member Mac Crawford, a Nashville businessman, said discipline was one of the first topics brought up with Malzahn. “We talked about it a long time and we were very satisfied with the answers that he gave to us,” said Crawford, a former Auburn fullback who was chairman of the board at CVSCaremark and CEO/chairman of CaremarkRx. Freshman quarterback Jonathan Wallace said discipline was an issue last season “but that’s something that can be fixed.” “Just a matter of us being accountable with each other,” said Wallace, who started the final four games. “That’s the biggest thing, just looking out for each other and making sure that we’re not doing anything that we don’t need to be doing.”

ment that pays up to $1.5 million a year in performance bonuses. The letter, released by Auburn on Wednesday, says he will be owed his $500,000 base salary for the rest of his contract if fired without cause. He won’t be owed anything if fired with cause, including rules violations or “serious personal misconduct.” Auburn will pay his $700,000 buyout to Arkansas State as a loan, forgiving 20 percent each year Malzahn remains. Jackson is optimistic that he’ll be there awhile. The former NFL and Major League Baseball player used words like “passion,” “tenacity” and “hungry” to describe Malzahn’s pitch and demeanor in his interview with the search committee. He also praised his willingness “to come into a hornet’s nest like this and say, ‘My job is to rebuild this program, to get these kids back to the winning ways these kids are used to.”’ That challenge extends well beyond Xs and Os. The Tigers wilted against top competition, getting routed by No.

AUBURN, Ala. (AP) — Bo Jackson says new Auburn coach Gus Malzahn must build the program from the ground up and start by putting down a solid foundation. Malzahn inherits a Tigers team with virtually every starter returning next season but plenty of uncertainty at quarterback and many other positions from a team that had a number of issues on both sides of the ball — and away from the field. So Jackson is preaching patience. “I think what Gus Malzahn is facing right now, he’s facing an empty lot,” said Jackson, the 1985 Heisman Trophy winner and part of the four-man search committee. “He’s got to go move dirt. Lay a foundation and start to build a house. He’s got to rebuild that house. That’s what he plans on doing.” Auburn gave Malzahn a fiveyear, $11.5 million deal Tuesday with focus on restoring the team to championship caliber and bringing more discipline to a program that endured a number of off-the-field issues under Gene Chizik. He has signed a letter of agree-

The Tigers do have big holes to fill, despite returning 18 players who started on offense or defense in the finale against Alabama. They’re losing their only consistently productive receiver, Emory Blake, No. 2 rusher Onterio McCalebb and leading tackler Daren Bates. Defensive end Corey Lemonier also hasn’t said if he’ll return for his senior season or enter the NFL draft. But Malzahn said it goes beyond talent to attitude. “We do have some talent, and we have some deficiencies, and what I’ve got to do is identify the deficiencies and address those immediately and also the mindset,” he said. “The mindset and expectations mentally and physically of our players.

The Tigers improved from 110th in scoring in 2008 to 16th the following season with Chris Todd at quarterback. Malzahn also directed Tulsa offenses that led the nation in total offense in 2007 and 2008. Wallace, one of three quarterbacks with multiple starts returning, said he attended every Auburn home game during the national championship season two years ago. He also saw what Texas A&M and Johnny Manziel did this season with a similarly uptempo offense.
