No one retreating; cliff talks seem at standstill

WASHINGTON (AP) — A year-end deadline approaching, negotiations to avoid an economy-rattling “fiscal cliff” appeared at a standstill Monday. Republicans pressed President Barack Obama to name specific spending cuts he will support, while the White House insisted the GOP agree explicitly to raise tax rates on upper incomes. At a campaign-style event in Michigan, Obama warned his listeners their taxes will rise on Jan. 1 without action by the Congress. “That’s a hit you can’t afford to take,” he declared. He spoke one day after meeting privately at the White House with House Speaker John Boehner, whose office expressed frustration with the talks to date. “We continue to wait for the president to identify the

spending cuts he’s willing to make as part of the ‘balanced’ approach he promised the American people,”’ said a written statement from the Ohio Republican’s office. The negotiations are designed to prevent acrossthe-board tax increases and spending cuts scheduled to begin at the turn of the year, a combination that economists say poses the threat of a new recession. While leaders in both parties say they are eager to avoid that “cliff,” negotiations on a plan to cut deficits by other measures have turned into a major postelection showdown between opposing sides in a divided government. Many Republicans agree that Obama and the Democrats hold most of the political leverage, given the presi-

dent’s re-election more than a month ago after a campaign in which he said the wealthy should pay more in taxes. Obama spoke by phone Monday with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., while traveling aboard Air Force One, according to a Democratic aide. The aide was not authorized to speak publicly about the private conversation and thus spoke on condition of anonymity. If anything, the president has toughened his demands in recent days, insisting not only that tax rates must rise, but also that Congress give him and future presidents the authority to raise the government’s borrowing limit without prior approval by lawmakers.

The witness testimony for the hearing of the New Mexico Public Education Department vs. David Lawrence was held, Monday, at the Roswell Independent School District school board room. The hearing was called to review the former Goddard High School coach’s licensing as a school teacher following allegations of sexual misconduct. The Notice of Contemplated Action was not issued until Nov. 11, 2011, after Lawrence had been acquitted on charges of criminal sexual contact of a minor. The PED document stated: “Sufficient evidence exists to justify … suspending, revoking or taking other disciplinary action against the Licensee’s (Lawrence) license.” Consulting attorney for the PED Chris Romero reviewed the previous investigations into the purported inappropriate relationship between Lawrence and a Goddard High School student which left Lawrence subject to possible disciplinary action. Romero asked Kayla Powell to tell the hearing about

Egypt’s military takes Experts say drilling can be made cleaner over security ahead of vote PITTSBURGH (AP) — In CAIRO (AP) — Egypt’s military assumed responsibility Monday for protecting state institutions and maintaining security ahead of a Dec. 15 constitutional referendum, as the country braced for another round of mass demonstrations by the supporters of the country’s Islamist president and the liberal opposition over the disputed charter. The referendum on a contentious new constitution lies at the heart of a bitter political battle that has deeply polarized Egypt and triggered some of the worst street violence between backers and opponents of President Mohammed Morsi since he took power in June as the country’s first democratically elected leader. So far, Morsi has stood firm on the referendum, refusing to yield to opposition demands that he scrap the vote scheduled for Saturday. The opposition, meanwhile, was still trying to decide late Monday whether to boycott the See EGYPT, Page A3

Companies point to Texas and say drilling is safe. The answer appears to

New Mexico parolees’ late releases draw fire ALBUQUERQUE (AP) — The state Corrections Department’s new system of bouncing all inmate release documents to a central office for approval often has resulted in late releases for parolees.

Heavy snow in NM causes delays, 1 fatal car crash

ALBUQUERQUE (AP) — Heavy snows and icy roads have left parts of New Mexico with forced delays, dangerous driving conditions and at least one person dead. New Mexico State Police say at least one person was killed Sunday in a weather related car crash. Police identified the woman as 54-year-old Dorothy Mullins of Santa Fe. Her truck had slid, hit a road barrier and came to rest in the northbound lanes before it was struck by another vehicle. The winter storm also forced the closure of Interstate 40 in Clines Corners where two semi-trucks were jackknifed. Both highways were open Monday, but state transportation officials urged motorists to be careful and expect delays.

NY, NJ ponder new boardwalks without the boards

SEASIDE HEIGHTS, N.J. (AP) — Coastal areas of New Jersey and New York that lost their boardwalks to Superstorm Sandy’s surge are racing to rebuild them in time for tourist season — in some places, without the boards. For reasons both practical and environmental, some communities are proposing to replace their wooden boardwalks with more durable synthetic materials or even concrete. That is raising objections from those who say nothing else looks, feels or even smells quite like a true wooden boardwalk. In New York, where Mayor Michael Bloomberg had already decided wooden boardwalks don’t cut it anymore, a group from the Coney Island section of Brooklyn called Friends of the Boardwalk sued last year to block a plan to replace wooden boardwalks with concrete and plastic.

While “Under the Polymerwalk” might not have the same ring to it as the Drifters’ 1960s hit “Under The Boardwalk,” New York City parks officials say concrete sections of boardwalk in Queens’ Rockaways and Coney Island did hold up much better when Sandy hit in late October. That is an issue Tim Keating, director of Rainforest Relief, has been working on for years. He says coastal communities will be under pressure to quickly rebuild but urges them to resist the temptation to use tropical wood such as ipe, which is cheaper than synthetic materials and popular for its durability. Belmar is considering ipe for its boardwalk reconstruction. Keating says durable synthetic materials are the best choice for boardwalks; Belmar, Spring Lake, Point Pleasant Beach and other places already use it.

Roswell Daily Record

For many shore towns, boardwalks are their summertime economic engine, where tourists and residents alike spend their money on food and drinks, or on games of skee ball or balloon darts to win a stuffed animal.

In these towns, even in the many non-commercial sections where boardwalks are merely a non-sandy way to get from here to there, not having one is not an option. They will need the tourism money this summer more than ever as they try to rebuild homes and other infrastructure.

The destruction in Seaside Heights has become emblematic of the storm because of a roller coaster that plunged into the ocean. Mayor Bill Akers said 75 percent of his town’s budget comes from tourism, with the remaining 25 percent raised from local taxpayers.

Harley Davidson Think before giving a pet for Christmas motorcycle taken JESSICA PALMER RECORD STAFF WRITER

Auto theft

• Police were called to the 400 block of West Forest Street, Sunday, after subjects removed a metallic blue Harley Davidson FRX motorcycle from the backyard. It was reported the motorcycle did not run well and also that the bike had no gas in the tank. • Police were dispatched to the 1700 block of North Garden Avenue, Sunday. The victim’s mother reported that her son was staying on West 12th Street at the time when her 2012 Toyota Camry (New Mexico tag number MCH478) was taken.

Larceny

• Police were called to the Seventh Day Adventist Church, 2915 S. Union Ave., Saturday, after a parishioner discovered that someone had removed her wallet from her purse during a Christmas program. The subject was described as 6-feet-tall with long light brown hair and a mustache. He was wearing blue jeans and cowboy boots. • Police were dispatched to the 1200 block of North Lea Avenue, Saturday, where subjects took a Schwinn tricycle, valued at $400, from a carport.

Fraud

Police received a walk-in report of fraud, Saturday. The victim had purchased a 2006 Accura TL on Craigslist and sent the money to the seller in New Jersey through a Walmart moneygram. The individual said that the first attempt was halted by Walmart, but the second attempt went through. However, the victim never received the car.

Burglary

Police responded to M&M Coin Company, 207 W. Third St., in answer to an alarm. When officers arrived at the scene they discovered subjects had broken the front door to enter the business and then tried to cut the power in order to stop the alarm.

Embezzlement

Police received a walk-in report, Friday, from a person who expected a moneygram for $1,000 sometime between Nov. 17 and Nov. 22, but found out it had been cashed by someone else.

Battery

Police received a report, Friday, from an 18-yearold male at Job Corps who said his hands had been taped and his mouth taped shut by another 18-yearold at the Job Corps dormitory on 57 G St. He told officials the other student had left Job Corps and he did not want to press charges, but needed to file a report for documentation purposes.

Organizations will warn people not to give animals as gifts. Most experts agree that presenting a kitten or puppy or some other unsuspecting critter to a family unprepared to keep it should be avoided at all costs. For example: relationships may change. Often an animal given as a symbol of love may be rejected if the relationship deteriorates. Dr. Leandro Gutierrez of Casa Querencia Animal Health Center, 1607 Fowler Road, however, does not rule out an animal as a gift if certain precautions are taken. He says the primary one is do not give an animal as a surprise gift. Consult the family. It’s not enough that the children might enjoy a pet. The primary caretaker needs to be taken into consideration. Who is the primary caretaker? Does that person have the time to fulfill the basic requirements of

the animal involved? If it’s a puppy or a dog, does that person have the time to walk the dog? Does the individual or family have the room, both indoors and out? Do they have the money for an extra mouth to feed? These are not decisions to be contemplated alone. Anyone considering giving an animal as a gift should ask the individual what they think and what they want. People need to plan ahead. What sort of pet is appropriate to the family and the family situation? Certain breeds of dogs aren’t good for families with small children. The list of breeds might surprise. For instance, the pit bull went by the name “nanny” in Victorian Britain because, as a breed, they are good with children. Meanwhile many small dogs—such as terriers, dachshunds and Chihuahuas—are not necessarily a good fit. The person may want a large dog, but if they do not have the space to let it run,

the time to walk it or a fenced-in backyard to give it some freedom, then one is doing a disservice to the dog to give it to a family who cannot provide it with the exercise it needs. A cat, of course, is a viable alternative if it has the right temperament, but a kitten may not work well with small children. The recipient may not want a box to clean every day, or may not want a cat. Gutierrez recommends that people bring over all the supplies an animal might need. “Don’t bring someone a kitten unless you bring the food, the bowls and the cat box and litter that they will need. Otherwise what are they going to do with this animal until the next day?” For a dog, the items in the package might include food, dishes, leash or leashes and collar. If the recipient has an unfenced backyard, a chain with an adequate anchor and/or chain set up which will give the dog room to roam without getting tan-

man was a murder victim. But it was soon determined that he had been a stowaway who fell from a passenger plane when it lowered its landing gear directly above Portman Avenue. “It was scary, there was a body on the street, and nobody knew at first that he had fallen from a plane,” neighbor Stephanie Prudhomme said. “There were police everywhere.” The identity of the man remains a mystery three months later. He carried no identification, but police believe he may have been from Angola. They are asking the public to help identify the man, whose death has traumatized the neighborhood. Some heard the noise on impact; others were alarmed when they opened their doors and saw a crumpled badly disfigured body lying on the street.

Some didn’t know anything was amiss until the police and an ambulance arrived, followed by homicide detectives. Police came to believe the man stowed away on a passenger jet bound from the African nation of Angola to London, only to die en route and then fall when the landing gear opened — an occurrence that is rare but not unheard of. “There is great sadness,” said Catherine Lambert, who lives a few doors down from the spot where the man landed. “To think that the end of the line for him is a suburban street, miles away from his world.” The event shattered the neighborhood’s sense of being immune from the world’s troubles, she said, a feeling compounded by the inability of police to identify the man. “I felt, what was he running away from? What

gled will be required. The outdoor dog will need a place to get shade and out of the cold. This may mean a dog house and depending on the type of training perhaps a crate for indoors.

Remember a pet is a gift that keeps on giving, but it is a gift that requires continued maintenance and upkeep. Some expenses may not be immediate. However, the giver should consider the other expenses that may be incurred immediately. The pet should have all the age-appropriate vaccinations—rabies, parvo, distemper—before it is given to the family. Any licenses required by city ordinance also should be provided.

Pets are gifts that require a lifelong commitment, something that can provide love, warmth and enjoyment for years to come, as long as the giver behaves responsibly, thinks ahead and consults the prospective owner.

‘Falling man’ changes London neighborhood LONDON (AP) — The suburban stillness of the comfortable, two-story homes in west London’s Mortlake neighborhood is broken only by the roar of jets thundering overhead on the final approach to Heathrow Airport. It’s a pleasant place, with easy connections into central London, generally free of crime and congestion.

That changed early on a sunny Sunday morning in September when a man from Africa literally fell from the sky and landed with a loud thud onto the sidewalk of Portman Avenue, half a block from a convenience store, an upscale lingerie boutique, and a shop selling Chinese herbal remedies.

In the hours after the crumpled body was found, as early risers were getting up to walk their dogs, get the papers, or go to church, police thought the

made him think he could survive? And how will his family ever know? He’s a lost soul now; his father and mother are probably waiting for him to make contact,” said Lambert, 41. Frustrated police have released a composite electronic image of what they believe the man’s face looked like before his fall, as well as a photo of a tattoo on his left arm, in hopes that he may be identified. Based on circumstantial evidence, including some currency found in his jeans pocket, they believe he may have been from Angola, but discussions with Angolan authorities have not provided useful clues. In the days after the macabre discovery, some residents moved by the man’s death placed flowers at the spot where his body landed.

Boehner, while claiming his own election mandate for the Republican majority in the House, said within a few days of the voting he was prepared to buck many in his party and support additional tax revenue as part of a fiscal cliff agreement. The Ohio Republican has said repeatedly he opposes Obama’s plan to raise tax rates for anyone, adding that he prefers to raise revenue by closing loopholes. Yet he has not yet ruled out giving the president his way, and some Republicans have said they are prepared to do so — encouraging Democrats to say they anticipate the speaker will eventually yield on the point. White House Press Secretary Jay Carney told reporters as Obama went to Michigan that “the president believes that a deal is possible. It requires acceptance and acknowledgement in a concrete way by Republicans that the top 2 percent will see an increase in their rates.” In his remarks at the Daimler Detroit Diesel Plant, Obama said the Democrats would “make some tough spending cuts on things that we don’t need” as part of his budget plans, although he didn’t mention any of them by name. Republicans have increasingly expressed frustration in recent days as they accuse Obama and the Democrats of failing to talk in specifics when it comes to spending cuts that many of their constituencies are likely to balk

what she felt was a burgeoning relationship between herself and Lawrence. She described attempts to get his attention and one late-night visit to the Lawrence home after the Goddard versus Roswell High School basketball game when she said he had reportedly fondled her before rejecting her and telling her to leave his home. When Romero asked if Lawrence had ever told her that this was wrong, she replied, “no.” Attorney Doug Jones-Witt concentrated on reported statements that Powell was alleged to have made to fellow students that she was sleeping with Lawrence. Although she admitted to having made these statements and said they were false, she denied threatening her fellow students. She wept when she discussed the consequences that the incident and the subsequent investigation had in her life. During the cross-examination of the witness, Jones-Witt noted that she had taunted Lawrence. Jones-Witt was eventually asked by the head of the PED public hearing, Morgan Lyman, to give Powell the time to answer before the next question. In re-cross, Romero inquired what Powell’s motivation was in following through with her suit. She responded that it was to “protect other girls.” Lawrence continued to deny that anything inappropriate had happened between himself and the student, as he had during the court hearing. He told the hearing that he tended to spend more time with students than other teachers did. When asked if he had a relationship with Powell, he said without hesitation. “We didn’t have a relationship, at all.” Lawrence acknowledged that he recognized that Powell had a crush on him. Jones-Witt queried: “Was there anything that gave you cause for concern?” He replied. “None.” In his cross-examination of Lawrence, Romero asked if the teacher had ever given his cell phone number to students and Lawrence admitted he had given it to certain athletes. However, he denied providing his phone number or his address to Powell. He could not explain how she had obtained them to make the late-night visit. Romero repeated RISD policy about inappropriate conduct between teachers

man who was released eight years too early. The system was centralized in order to ensure that one records expert had the last glance at inmate records before they were paroled, in order to guarantee that the releases were accurate.

at. In talks that ended in failure 18 months ago, according to aides in both political parties, Obama had tentatively agreed to a proposal to raise the age of Medicare eligibility from 65 to 67 beginning in a decade, and had also said he would accept a change to slow the annual cost-of-living increases that go to recipients of Social Security and other federal benefits. This time, the two sides have advanced opening proposals that are short of specifics and reflect different priorities. Obama’s plan would raise $1.6 trillion in revenue over 10 years, in part by raising tax rates on incomes over $200,000 for individuals and $250,000 for couples. He has recommended $400 billion in spending cuts over a decade. He also is seeking extension of the Social Security payroll tax cut due to expire on Jan. 1, a continuation in long-term unemployment benefits and steps to help hard-pressed homeowners and doctors who treat Medicare patients. Boehner’s plan, in addition to calling for $800 billion in new revenue, envisions $600 billion in savings over a decade from Medicare, Medicaid and other government health programs as well as $300 billion from other benefit programs and another $300 billion from other domestic programs. It would trim annual increases in Social Security payments to beneficiaries, and it calls for gradually raising the eligibility age for Medicare from 65 to 67, beginning in a decade. and students. Lawrence said that since “nothing had happened” he saw no reason to report the visit. When provided with an opportunity to make closing statements, Romero said Lawrence had time to stop what was going on. “Even if it was one touch; it was inappropriate.” He noted that Lawrence exhibited bad judgment in not reporting the student’s visit to his home. “That silence is indicative of not wanting to reveal too much. ... He had a lot to lose.” He defended PED’s witness. “They call her an uncredible witness, but there’s nothing inconsistent in her testimony. ... At no time does she change her story.” Romero posed the question that if her goal was to discredit Lawrence then “why not tell a good one? Why not tell something more salacious?” Romero recommended total revocation of Lawrence’s licensure. In his closing statement, Jones-Witt said: “No one will argue that (David Lawrence) made a poor judgment call.” He asked PED to rescind revocation of Lawrence from the list of possible disciplinary measures. Jones-Witt argued that to lose his license would not only prohibit Lawrence from working in New Mexico, but also not permit him to work as a teacher anywhere else in the country. When hearing officer Lymon asked for clarification, Witt said: “I’m beginning to sound like a lawyer talking both sides of my face,” but he said if punishment was necessary then he recommended suspension for a period of six months, adding: “We will leave that decision in your capable hands.” Unlike court where the decision is immediate, the hearing did not conclude the day of testimony. Instead, each attorney is required to provide exhibits to L yman by Feb. 1, 2013, which will be reviewed and recommendations made, which PED may later choose to overturn. Following the hearing, Romero was asked why no other witnesses which had given testimony during the criminal case were called. He stated that the court transcripts of specified witnesses in both the District Court and Magistrate Court hearings were sufficient. When noted that some witnesses, who may have had pertinent comments, such as one-time Goddard Principal Andrew Sweet, were not included on the list of the specified witnesses, Romero said that it was not necessary. j.palmer@rdrnews.com “At first it was kind of chaos,” Catanach said. “We’re now looking at these records a lot more extensively.” Catanach said the process is becoming easier.

Another reason for the holdup, Catanach said, is that inmates aren’t paroled on weekends and holidays anymore. But that ensures enough eyes see the file before the parolee walks out the door.

“We accept the fact that it’s not going to make inmates and their families the happiest,” Rodda said. “But we don’t want someone out on the street who shouldn’t be on the street.”

NM WOMAN ACCUSED IN RX DRUG CASE

LAS CRUCES (AP) — A New Mexico woman is facing federal charges that she fraudulently acquired and distributed prescription pain medication.

The U.S. attorney’s office says 32-year-old Veronica Hernandez of Mesilla Park appeared in federal court Monday. She’s in a half-way house pending trial. Hernandez has been under investigation since July, when federal drug agents received a complaint from a pharmacist alleging that she had filled a fraudulent prescription for 360 tablets of Oxycodone. If convicted, prosecutors say Hernandez could face up to 20 years in prison.

referendum or rally Egyptians to vote “no” to the draft constitution, and hoping that a massive turnout for a rally Tuesday would force the president to cancel the balloting. “We still have a chance, with popular rejection, to stop the referendum,” said Basil Adel, a former lawmaker and liberal activist. Egypt’s political crisis began on Nov. 22 when Morsi issued a decree granting himself — and the Islamist-dominated panel writing the constitution — immunity from judicial oversight or challenge. Those decrees sparked mass demonstrations, with opponents saying they were issued initially to protect the draft charter from the judiciary. The constituent assembly then hurriedly approved the draft constitution in a marathon overnight session, further inflaming those who claim that Morsi and his Islamist allies, including the Muslim Brotherhood, are monopolizing power and trying to force their agenda into practice. That prompted hundreds of thousands of the president’s opponents to take to the streets in massive rallies — the largest from primarily secular groups since the uprising that toppled Hosni Mubarak last year. Morsi’s supporters responded with huge demonstrations of their own, which led to clashes in the streets that left at least six people dead and hundreds wounded. Morsi has rescinded the decree that gave him absolute powers, but did not meet the opposition’s main demand and delay the referendum.

be that drilling can be safe or it can be dangerous. Industry practices, enforcement, geography and even snow cover can minimize or magnify air pollution problems. “It’s like a vehicle. Some cars drip oil,” said Russell Schnell, deputy director of the federal Earth System Research Laboratory in Boulder, Colo. “You have wells that are absolutely tight. And you have other places where a valve gives out, and you have huge leaks.” The good news, nearly all sides agree, is that the technology exists to control methane gas leaks and other air pollution associated with drilling. The bad news is that the industry is booming so rapidly that some companies and some regulators can’t seem to get ahead of the problems, which could ultimately cost billions of dollars to remedy. The worries about what drilling does to the air are both global and local, with scientists concerned about the effects on climate change as well as the possible health consequences from breathing smog, soot and other pollutants. Hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, has made it possible to tap into deep reserves of oil and gas but has also raised concerns about pollution. The industry and many federal and state officials say the practice is safe when done properly, but environmental groups and some scientists say there hasn’t been enough research. Some environmentalists say if leaks and pollution can be minimized, the boom has benefits, since gas burns much cleaner than coal, emitting half the carbon dioxide. Al Gore told The Associated Press that it’s “not irresponsible” to look at gas as a short-term substitute for coal-fired electricity. But Gore added that the main component of gas, methane, is a more potent heat-trapping greenhouse gas than CO2. That means that if large quantities leak, the advantage over coal disappears, the former vice president said. In Colorado, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration estimated that 4 percent of methane was leaking from wells, far more than previously estimated, and that people who live near production areas may be exposed to worrisome levels of benzene and other toxic compounds present in oil and gas. Across the industry, the technology for stopping leaks can be as simple as fixing seals and gaskets, or it can involve hundreds of millions of dollars of

With tensions running high in the country, the president on Sunday ordered the military to take responsibility for security and protect state institutions along with the police until the results of the constitutional referendum are announced. On Monday, the army took up the task in line with the presidential decree, which also grants the military the right to arrest civilians. Presidential spokesman Yasser Ali tried to downplay concerns the move was a step toward martial law, saying instead that “it is merely a measure to extend legal cover for the armed forces while they are used to maintain security.” There were no signs of an increased military presence outside the presidential palace, where tanks have been deployed since last week’s fierce street clashes, or elsewhere in the capital on Monday. Still, the decision to lean on the military, which had a spotty record over the tumultuous 16 months that it ran Egypt after Mubarak’s fall, prompted concern among international rights groups. “Considering the track record of the army while they were in charge, with more than 120 protesters killed and in excess of 12,000 civilians unfairly tried before military courts, this sets a dangerous precedent,” said Hassiba Hadj Sahraoui of Amnesty International. Human Rights Watch called on Morsi to put limits to military’s policing powers to prohibit trials of civilians in front of military tribunals. Activists and rights groups have documented a catalog of human rights violations by authorities during the period of military rule. new construction.

“I think it’s totally fixable,” Schnell said. “At least the bigger companies, they are really on top of this.” Gore added that when companies capture leaking methane, they end up with more to sell. “So there’s an economic incentive to capture it and stop the leaking,” he said.

Another major source of worry is the industry’s practice of burning off, or flaring, natural gas that comes out of the ground as a byproduct of oil drilling. Over the past five years, the U.S. has increased the amount of flared and wasted gas more than any other nation, though Russia still burns off far more than any other country. In some places, energy companies haven’t invested in the infrastructure needed to capture and process the gas because the oil is more valuable.

In the Bakken Shale oil fields of North Dakota, for example, about 30 percent of the natural gas is flared off because there aren’t enough pipelines yet to carry it away. The amount of gas wasted in the state is estimated at up to $100 million a year. And officials in North Dakota said last month that the situation there might not be completely solved until the end of the decade. NOAA scientists also say natural gas production has contributed to unusual wintertime smog in the West, particularly in regions surrounded by mountains, and especially in snowy areas.

Ozone, the main component in smog, typically forms when sunlight “cooks” a low-lying stew of chemicals such as benzene and engine exhaust. Normally, the process doesn’t happen in cold weather.

But NOAA researchers found that when there’s heavy snowfall, the sun passes through the stew, then bounces off the snow and heats it again on the way back up. In some cases, smog in remote areas has spiked to levels higher than those in New York or Los Angeles.

In open regions that are more exposed to wind, the ozone vanishes, sometimes within hours or a day. But in Utah basins it can linger for weeks, Schnell said.

Evidence that gas drilling air pollution can be managed — but that more work may still need to be done — comes from north Texas, where the shale gas boom began around Fort Worth about 10 years ago.


Pension solutions demand compromise A4 Tuesday, December 11, 2012

We know that New Mexico’s two biggest public retirement systems are sliding toward insolvency. The Educational Retirement Board is looking into a $5.9 billion abyss between its assets and the benefits it will have to pay. The Public Employee Retirement Association faces an even bigger gap of $6.2 billion. Those numbers will probably get bigger as new information comes out. To find solutions, the Legislature in 2011 created the interim legislative Investments and Pensions Oversight Committee, chaired by Sen. George Muñoz, DGallup. It dutifully heard testimony and introduced bills, but there was little consensus. Curiously, the PERA didn’t even offer a plan. “I can’t figure out why people don’t want to fix the problem today instead of every single year kicking it down the road because at some point we’re going to be in

so much trouble. That’s my biggest fight,” Muñoz said during the last session. Lately, we’ve seen a greater sense of urgency and real momentum. The news is that the committee and unions have approved plans from both the ERB and PERA. The ERB plan would reduce employee contributions from 11.15 percent to 10.7 percent and raise state contributions from 9.15 percent to 13.9 percent, according to information submitted to the committee. The ERB also proposed a new minimum retirement

age of 55; and, for future workers, deferred start date of some retirement benefits. The committee clarified that the changes would not apply to workers earning less than $20,000 a year. The plan bears some resemblance to a compromise measure introduced by Sen. Stuart Ingle, R-Portales, which would have set a minimum retirement age of 55 as of July 1, 2022, reduced the cost-of-living adjustment paid to retirees 65 or older, and increased employee contributions over a fiveyear period and employer contributions over a six-year period. The COLA is something of a sacred cow, and the Senate Education Committee stripped the COLA reductions from Ingle’s bill, along with the minimum retirement age. The PERA board in June proposed scaling back retirement benefits for current and future employees, increasing contributions by both employees and gov-

ernment, and limiting retirement eligibility for future workers. It too was supported by unions. News of these approvals doesn’t mention the challenges of getting 15 unions and retiree groups to sign off. Because last session unions harpooned some of the measures, the legislative committee probably understood that this is the best deal they could expect. The unions’ positions can’t be dismissed as posturing. They’ll try to protect employees, yes, but one thing we heard often during the last session was that retirees had made plans and decisions based on the state’s promises, and the state couldn’t just change the rules mid-game. Let’s not forget that we wouldn’t even be in this fix if financial wizards far from here hadn’t totaled the economy, although the Legislature was slow to respond. As the funds’ earnings shrank, their costs were climbing. Lawmakers kept improving benefits (it’s more

fun to give than to take away), and workers retired younger and lived longer. Even though lawmakers have increased state and employee contributions, it wasn’t enough. Gov. Susana Martinez thinks both plans lay too much of the burden on taxpayers. Her new spokesman says she has offered to work with legislators to find a solution. There’s probably room for compromise, but she doesn’t acknowledge the significant compromising already accomplished. Muñoz also points out that cities carry more of the burden than the state. And then there’s the emotional debris from the nastiest and most expensive election campaigns New Mexicans have ever seen. Compromise will probably be scarce, but the abyss grows as we argue. Says Muñoz, “We have to get this done (in the next session) or we’ll have to come back in a special session.” © New Mexico News Services 2012

Fiscal cliff

Politicians who borrow and spend with reckless abandon gave us the 2013 cliffjumping pact. Congressional politicians enact debt limits, as a gesture of restraint, then waive the limits at will. It is gradual economic suicide. Government has incurred more debt under President Barack Obama already than 42 predecessors combined, Washington through Clinton. To continue spending more than our economy can afford, Obama asked Congress to raise the debt limit in 2011. Republicans balked. To avoid sovereign default, Congress and the president struck a deal to immediately increase the debt ceiling by $400 billion, with options for additional increases going forward. Guilt-ridden politicians raised the limit on condition Congress and Obama would dramatically reduce the deficit in 2013. To ensure deficit reduction, they tied the debtlimit increase to automatic tax hikes and spending cuts, effective in January 2013. Known as “sequestration,” these automaticspending cuts could devastate local economies relying on defense spending. That our debt ceiling is a joke — like a credit limit the consumer manipulates at will — caused this mess. Presidents no longer have impoundment or line-item veto power, which means a debt limit is the only control on spending. Behold the wise man who said “enough” last week: We are “not going to raise the debt ceiling ever again until we address what got us in debt, and that’s government spending and entitlement growth,” said Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C. Years before a $16.3 trillion debt had us gazing into the abyss, contemplating our economic mortality, another wise man warned us about debts and debt limits: “The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. government cannot pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our government’s reckless fiscal policies ... Increasing America’s debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that ‘the buck stops here.’ Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren.” These words belong to a revered American who may rank second-to-none in our national annals. They are the words of then-Sen. Barack Obama, who was battling a 2006 request for more credit by then-President George W. Bush. President Obama, what happened? Washington’s debt has long burdened future generations and the future has arrived. Review your statement of 2006, Mr. President. Then re-frame. Sell the merits of sacrifice, charity and self-reliance. Lead this country from crisis without incurring more debt. Guest Editorial The Colorado Springs Gazette

Sen. Jim DeMint, the uncompromising South Carolina conservative whose average personal net worth of $40,501 made him, according to the respected Center for Public Integrity, the fourthpoorest member of the Senate, will resign his seat at the end of the year to become president of The Heritage Foundation. Although no salary terms have been announced, the man whom DeMint will succeed has been paid more than a million dollars a year, and

it’s a good bet that Jim DeMint, who is ear ning $174,000 a year as a senator, will get a raise to somewhere in seven figures. The DeMint news came right on the heels of an exclusive report in Mother Jones magazine that former Republican House Majority Leader Dick Ar mey of Texas had resigned as chairman of FreedomWorks, one of the prominent political operations in the conservative movement with strong tea party ties. Reportedly, Armey’s severance package will leave him richer by $8 million. Talk about striking gold.

The financial windfalls visited upon these two conservative true-believers recalls the line about the congregationalist missionaries in Hawaii who seemed to find more personal prosperity than converts: “They came to do good and did very, very well!” But if you want to know the terribly sad state of today’s Republican Party, you just have to look at the treatment of Bob Dole, who was both the presidential and the vice presidential nominee of the GOP, in addition to being his party’s Senate leader as well as its national chairman. But long before he was a

national leader, he was 2nd Lt. Bob Dole on April 14, 1945, in the hills of Italy, when a Ger man shell tore through his right shoulder and broke his neck and spine. He had been a 6-foot-2-inch, 194-pound athlete, and after losing 70 pounds and having his body temperature rise to 108.7 degrees, he forced himself through 39 months of painful rehabilitation to learn all over again how to use the toilet, how to eat, how to wash and dress himself, and how to walk.

DEAR DOCTOR K: My mom always told me to take vitamin C and not to drink milk when I had a cold. Is this true or just an old wives’ tale? DEAR READER: The idea that vitamin C supplements might prevent the common cold, or shorten the duration and reduce its symptoms, was popularized by the biochemist Linus Pauling. Pauling was indisputably a genius, a Nobel Prize winner who was one of the most distinguished scientists of the 20th century. When Pauling talked, people listened. In fact, people not only listened; they put the scientist’s ideas to a scientific test. Randomized controlled trials involving thousands of people were conducted. My interpretation of

ASK DR. K UNITED MEDIA SYNDICATE

the results of those studies is that they showed no evidence that vitamin C supplements reduced the duration or severity of the common cold. There was weak evidence that they might reduce the risk of catching it. Still, studies like these can tell us only about the results in the “average” person. It may be that there really are some peo-

ple who do benefit from vitamin C supplements; the problem is that we currently have no way of identifying these people. Some of my patients insist that vitamin C helps them to deal with the common cold, and they could be right. What about drinking milk? There is a rather widespread belief that dairy products trigger mucous production during a cold and can slow recovery or even cause another cold. You hear it a lot, but it’s just not true. The argument was that milk increased the amount and thickness of phlegm that is produced during a cold. Phlegm is the thick, mucous-containing fluid responsible for congestion and post-nasal drip.

But a remarkable set of studies published in 1990 found no clear connection between milk consumption and cold symptoms. In one study, researchers exposed study subjects to a cold virus. They kept track of the dairy products the subjects ate and their symptoms over 10 days. Secretions from the nose were collected, the collection jars promptly sealed to avoid evaporation and then weighed. The verdict? The amount of nasal secretions and symptoms of congestion had no relationship with milk or dairy intake. Later studies agreed. Researchers involved in these studies concluded that the comSee DR.

Humorous books help relieve stress during the holidays Roswell Daily Record

LORETTA CLARK ROSWELL PUBLIC LIBRARY

Andy Mason will perform festive Christmas music at 6:30 tonight in the Roswell Public Library, 301 N. Pennsylvania Ave. The young and the young at heart are invited to enjoy a free musical celebration of the season. During “A Brief History of Christmas Music,” Andy will sing holiday favorites with lyrics related to reindeer, Christmas trees and other holiday subjects. He highlights the songs with information, interesting trivia and answers questions such as: “Who wrote the 12 Days of Christmas?” “What was the first Christmas song to be performed in outer space?” “Did Frosty the Snowman really come to life?” Audience participation is encouraged during this history lesson that will have the audience tapping their toes and singing along. Refreshments will be provided by the Friends of the Library. The library is full of books and music related to Christmas and other holidays. These may be located in the Children’s Room, on Teen shelves and in the Adult collections. Non-fiction subjects feature religious observations, historical happenings, traditions, arts and crafts, food, decorating, songs and carols, legends, symbols and related festivities. Fiction titles range from classic literature to novels in various genres. There are dozens of music selections on CD. These include hymns, carols and popular tunes performed by well known (and not-as-wellknown) artists.

December can be stressful. Laughter, from giggling to a rollicking laugh to a heartfelt smile, is a lighthearted form of stress relief. Amanda Davis, reference librarian, shares a cheerful perspective on humorous books, so get your pencil ready to create your list of “I need to read” books. Sharpening pencils correctly is something a lot of people struggle with; however it can be an enjoyable pastime with the proper instruction. David Rees’ “How to Sharpen Pencils,” subtitled “A Practical and Theoretical Treatise on the Artisanal Craft of Pencil Sharpening,” will shed light on how to achieve the perfect pencil point. The many fascinating techniques, tools and devices are discussed and compared at length to make sure that you pick the one right for you. There is also a handy checklist of the things you will want to put in your pencil sharpening kit: a dust mask, bandages, sandpaper, toothbrush, magnifier, documentation and even some spare money so that you can eat if you get lightheaded while working. Choosing the right pencil sharpener is important and for those having trouble when making a selection, this book is for you. You might also consider the things that could go wrong during your foray into pencil sharpening, such as the sharpener being improperly mounted on the wall, say too high or too low for the safest positions. In addition, there is a whole chapter dedicat-

Some history regarding Israel

Dear Editor: In recent weeks, we have been hearing about the Israeli incursion into Gaza. We have been hearing about the Palestinian casualties but little about the rockets being fired from Gaza into Israel causing civilian deaths. We can only call massive, indiscriminate rocket attacks terrorist activity. This is much like the V1 and V2 rockets fired into England from Germany in World War II. Let us take a look at the historical facts. There have been Jews in the land of Israel continuously for more than 3,000 years. Arabic speaking Muslims overran the land in the 7th century AD. In later centuries, other conquerors including Seljuk Turks, Crusaders and Ottoman Turks controlled the land. In the late 19th century and the 20th century, more Jews began moving to Israel in the modern Zionist movement. With the end of World War I, the Ottoman Empire was dissolved and the territory was mandated to the United Kingdom. In 1947, the United Nations agreed to divide the land (then called Palestine) into an Arab state and a Jewish state. It was the Arabs who rejected the proposal. The armies of Egypt, Jordan, Iraq, Saudi Arabia and Syria attacked the new country with the intention of driving the Jews into the sea. At first it seemed they would succeed, but against all odds, the Israelis prevailed. The nation of Israel captured most of the land. Jordan occupied the West Bank area, and Egypt took over the Gaza Strip. Jordan and Egypt were occupying parts of the former Palestine. The borders would be there today if Egypt had not tried to strangle Israel by cutting off Israeli shipping out of the Gulf of Aqaba in 1967. Israel captured the Golan Heights in the north (from which Syria shelled Israeli farming settlements), the West Bank, (from which Jordanian artillery struck Israeli towns), and the Gaza Strip and Sinai Peninsula (from which the Egyptians cut off Israeli shipping into the Indian Ocean). Until this 1967 war, Arabic speaking Muslims in the West Bank called themselves “West Jordanians.” Now all of a sudden, we were hearing about the poor displaced “Palestinians.” At the time of Israeli independence, incidentally, most of the Arabic speaking people living there had come from other Arabic Muslim countries within the previous 50 years. Yasser Arafat was born in Egypt. What did the Jordanians do to help these people between 1948 and 1967? As nearly as I can determine, they did very

What’s Happening?

Children will appreciate the stories and crafts featured during the Winter Time and Christmas storytimes held this week on Wednesday at 10 a.m. and 3:30 p.m., and on Saturday at 2 p.m. Children who attend the story portion of the programs are invited to become creative through the related craft session. The programs are free and all materials are provided for the craft sessions. The stories may vary between programs and the quantity of some craft items may be limited. “Frozen Noses” describes the delights of such winter activities and might be one of the Winter Time line-up of stories heard on Wednesday. Other books might include “The Jacket I Wear in the Snow,” “Winter,” “Froggy Gets Dressed,” “Penelope in Winter,” “Winter’s Tale” or “Counting on Snow.” The mor ning program will also involve songs, finger play rhymes and body movement rhymes. The related crafts could embrace creating a wintery door knob hanger, decorating a mitten magnet bookmark or making a movable snowman. Christmas is a favorite time of

little. The Israelis did more for them than any Muslims. Today we see Palestinians fire rockets into Israeli towns. When the Israelis take appropriate military action to stop the rockets, we hear about Palestinian civilian casualties and little about the suffering caused by the rockets. Now the United Nations wants to make the Palestine Authority, dominated by the terrorist society Hamas, sworn to destroy every Jewish man, woman, and child in Israel, a member nation, albeit a nonvoting member. What insanity passes for wisdom today! Thank you, Russell A. Scott Roswell

Radical Islam

Dear Editor: I was disappointed but not at all surprised by the media coverage of the events in Gaza and Israel over the past week. Israel, at 7,500 square miles or roughly the size of New Jersey, is a prosperous and democratic state in the mist of de facto theocracies, kleptocracies and rouge non-state actors. Israel comprises one-sixth-of-one percent of the Arab World. In Arab geography books the maps designate Palestine as a nation, which it is not, and do not display Israel as a nation, which it is. The liberal media is reluctant, or is it just too lazy, to delve into detail? Today Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is as recognized as Jason, or some other super star du jour on American Idol, but if you researched newspapers or magazine articles of just two or three year ago, he would be the Iranian president. “Today, the Iranian president,” said. “The Iranian president in Tehran ...” The media’s new Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is Hamas. Hamas coincidentally translates to English as enthusiasm and other than the lethargic; who can argue with enthusiasm? OK, inconvenient truth time, Hamas should be in all caps because it is an acronym. HAMAS, or Ḥarakat alMuqāwamah al-islāmiyyah, which means the “Islamic Resistance Movement.” “Islamic Resistance Movement; wow sounds too menacing doesn’t it?” said the MSLSD news anchor.

than his left, has been limp for 67 years. In 1990, Bob Dole pushed the Americans With Disabilities Act to Senate passage. President George H.W. Bush supported and signed into law the historic legislation, which has changed the face of America and the fate of millions of Americans. Twenty-two years later, we now take for granted the wheelchair ramps in and out of our buildings, the wider doorways for greater access, the curb-cuts that remove obstacles. The ADA welcomes citizens with disabilities fully into the nation’s academic, civic, social and economic life. The Convention on the Rights of Persons With Disabilities, inspired by and modeled after the ADA, was negotiated and signed by the administration of President George W. Bush in 2006. One hundred fifty-four countries have signed this treaty, and 126 countries have already ratified it. The treaty would require no change in U.S. law, but would provide the framework and incen-

tive for other countries to recognize and guarantee, as the United States already does, the rights of all people with disabilities. Twenty-one veterans organizations, including the American Legion, Veterans of Foreign Wars and the Wounded Warriors Project — along with 30 religious and interfaith groups — endorse ratification by the U.S. Senate. But last week, Senate Republicans caved to baseless, irrational fears about black helicopters parachuting blue-helmeted U.N. troops into American neighborhoods to punish homeschooling parents or shutter religious schools. With a wheelchair-bound Bob Dole on the Senate floor urging just 13 Republicans to join all the Democrats and provide the two-thirds Senate vote needed to ratify, all but eight of the Republican senators rejected the plea of their former leader and American hero. Why? Because they’re scared of a primary challenge from the right. That’s why. America, Bob Dole, Abraham Lincoln’s party and 700 million of our fellow human beings with disabilities all deserve better. © 2012 Mark Shields

Jenni Rivera, soulful, troubled Mexican music star dies

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Jenni Rivera launched her career hawking cassette recordings of her songs at flea markets, but a powerful voice, soulful singing style and frank discussion of personal troubles powered her to the heights of a male-dominated industry, transforming her into the one of the biggest stars of the genre known as grupero. Her life was cut short at its peak on Sunday by an airplane crash in northern Mexico that also killed six friends and coworkers.

The 43-year-old mother of five and grandmother of two became a symbol of resilience for millions of fans on both sides of the U.S.Mexican border. Her fame grew as she branched out into acting, appearing in independent film, reality TV and the televised singing competition “La Voz Mexico.”

She had recently filed for divorce from her third husband, was once detained at a Mexico City airport with tens of thousands of dollars in cash, and publicly apologized after her brother

assaulted a drunken fan who verbally attacked her in 2011. Rivera sold more than 15 million copies of her 12 major-label albums and won a string of Latin music awards. Her shows filled both the Staples Center in Los Angeles and Mexico’s National Auditorium, a feat few male singers in her industry achieved. Many of her songs dealt with themes of dignity in the face of heartbreak, and her shows were known for their festive atmosphere and her intimate interactions with her fans. She would fill

song requests from fans who had suffered heartbreak and setbacks, and would often pull women and girls onto stage to personally tell them to keep moving forward.

The plane was taking her and her publicist, Arturo Rivera, her makeup artist, Jacob Yebale, and two friends, one named Mario Macias and another who was also identified as Gerardo, to the central Mexican city of Toluca after a Saturday night concert before thousands in the northern city of Monterrey. All were killed.

Mom sues for defamation

LOS ANGELES (AP) — The mother of “Moder n Family” actress Ariel Winter sued an associate of her adult daughter for defamation Monday, claiming he falsely labeled her an “abusive monster” in an online comment about a custody struggle for the teenage star. Chrisoula Workman filed the defamation and false light lawsuit against Matthew Borlenghi, claiming his comment attached to a Nov. 9 Los Angeles Time online story was false and has harmed her reputation. Borlenghi is an actor who teaches at a studio operated by Shanelle Gray, Winter’s adult sister who currently has custody of the 14-year -old actress. A judge temporarily stripped Workman of custody amid allegations she had been physically and emotionally

abusive to the star. A trial on whether Workman will be fully stripped of custody is scheduled to begin Wednesday. Borlenghi said he had not yet seen the lawsuit and declined to say whether he posted a comment about the story on the T imes website. The story centered on Workman’s allegations that Winter was having an improper relationship with an 18year-old actor.

If you were at the “Roswell Versus” boxing card Saturday night and went to get a drink, looked down at your phone, or even blinked too long, there’s a good chance you missed John Herrera’s stunning victory against Cristoval Larazolo. The Roswell fighter landed a crisp right hook to Larazolo’s jaw, sending the Amarillo fighter sprawling to the canvas just 47 seconds into the first round. Herrera picked up his fourth victory, bringing his record to 4-4-1 in his professional career. Saturday’s match was his second knockout and Herrera admitted that even he was surprised. “I was actually gonna try and box and if the knockout came, then it came. I wasn’t expecting a knockout,” he said. “… I heard my corner yell ‘he’s open for a right,’ so I threw it and it dropped him. I heard my cor ner, they told me what to do, I did it and it worked.” Coach and owner of Team Roswell, Lupe Perez, was one of the individuals who yelled for Herrera to take the shot and he said he predicted the outcome early on. “I knew it would come,” he said.

A GR-eat season

RG3 HAS MILD KNEE SPRAIN

NEW YORK (AP) — The NHL eliminated 16 more days from the regular-season schedule Monday, and if a deal with the players’ association isn’t reached soon the whole season could be lost. The league wiped out all games through Dec. 30 in its latest round of cancellations. Already, 422 regular-season games had been called off through Dec. 14 because of the lockout, and the latest cuts on Day 86 of the NHL shutdown claimed 104 more. The New Year’s Day Winter Classic and the All-Star game were canceled earlier. In all, the 526 lost games account for nearly 43 percent of the regular season that was scheduled to begin Oct. 11. The cancellation of just two more weeks of the season, however, could perhaps signal hope of a deal to begin play in early January. Negotiations between the league and the players’ association broke off last week, but NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly said Sunday the sides are trying to restart talks this week.

NATIONAL ASHBURN, Va. (AP) — All the medical terms associated with Robert Griffin III’s knee injury can be boiled down to one simple message: It’s not too bad. Beyond that, there are still some very important unknowns. The NFL’s top-rated quarterback might or might not play Sunday when the Washington Redskins visit the Cleveland Browns. Coach Mike Shanahan, knowing full well that it makes the other team work extra to prepare for two quarterbacks, will no doubt wait as long as possible to publicly commit one way or the other to Griffin or fellow rookie Kirk Cousins. “Both of them will have a game plan,” Shanahan said Monday. The interior of Griffin’s right knee was the subject of intense scrutiny during Shanahan’s weekly news conference, when it was shown that an injury to a franchise player like RG3 can flummox even a seasoned coach. Shanahan initially said Griffin had a “strain of the ACL” before later correcting the diagnosis to a sprained LCL, with the coach stepping away from the podium to demonstrate the location of the ligament involved. The upshot: Griffin has a mild, or Grade 1, sprain of the lateral collateral ligament located on the outside of the knee, caused when he was hit by defensive tackle Haloti Ngata at the end of a 13-yard scramble late in regulation of the 3128 overtime win over the Baltimore Ravens.

’Boys come back Overcome emotions to beat Bengals CINCINNATI (AP) — Dan Bailey’s 40-yard kick went straight through the uprights. The Dallas Cowboys had won an important game on a last-second field goal. They weren’t sure how to react. Numb. Grieving. Distracted. The Cowboys were all those things on Sunday, dealing with the death of one teammate and the tribulations of another. Winners, too, though they hardly felt like it. Bailey’s kick gave Dallas a 20-19 victory over the Cincinnati Bengals that ended a tough afternoon with the Cowboys’ playoff chances enhanced and their heads full of so many thoughts. “You think about everything,” quarterback Tony Romo said. “Like I said, it’s a roller coaster of emo-

tions. I don’t know what’s right; I don’t know what’s wrong. I don’t know what you’re supposed to feel. “It’s a hard, hard situation we’re in. There’s no playbook for this sort of thing in life.” With a late comeback on Sunday, they got a momentary reprieve from their grieving. The Cowboys overcame a nine-point deficit in the closing minutes behind Romo, who held his hand over his heart during a moment of silence to honor teammate Jerry Brown before the kickoff. The linebacker died in an auto accident early Saturday. Defensive lineman Josh Brent, who was driving, was released from jail on Sunday in Texas about an hour after the game ended.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — Look out. That familiar sight is the New England Patriots romping through December, looking like a Super Bowl team. The Patriots rolled over Houston 42-14 on Monday night, stamping themselves once again as the team to fear in the AFC — and making the Texans look like pretenders. Tom Brady threw for four touchdowns and 296 yards as New England manhandled the team with the league’s best record. The Patriots (10-3), who already own the AFC East title, won their seventh straight and moved one game behind the Texans (11-2) for the confer-

ence’s top seed. A matchup of the top two scoring teams in the league was a mismatch from the outset. It took New England only one possession to start its scoring barrage as the Patriots surpassed their average of 35.8 points per game. Wes Welker’s 31-yard punt return and 25-yard reception — the 107th straight game he’s had a catch — led to Aaron Hernandez’s 7-yard score. That gave Brady 45 consecutive games with a TD pass, third longest in NFL history. It also set the tone.

That’s it. It’s all over. The 2012 high school football season is complete. And the Goddard Rockets didn’t let it end in heartache like it had the previous two seasons. They finally did it. They finally completed a perfect season. Goddard put the finishing touches on the greatest season in school history on Friday when Kelsey Cunningham booted a 21-yard field goal as time expired to lift the Rockets to a 17-14 win over Los Lunas in the NMAA Class 4A State Championship.

And what a season it was. It began with a systematic dismantling of the defending state champions, followed by a road win over a team that would eventually earn the No. 1 seed in the 5A playoffs. There were some blowouts (Hobbs and Roswell), there were some games that were tight for a while before tur ning into romps (Moriarty and Artesia) and there were some clutch comebacks (Clovis and Carlsbad). This season of Goddard football had everything a fan could want and more. And it all ended in

grand style on Friday when a team driven by a gut-wrenching loss in the 2011 title game hoisted the blue trophy under the lights and the watchful eye of a boisterous capacity crowd. Kelsey Cunningham’s chip-shot field goal is what people will remember about the 2012 Goddard Rockets, but there are plenty of other things to remember as well. David Sweet turned 2012 into his coming-out party. Week after week, he put on a dazzling display of how to properly pressure the quarterback and disrupt offenses.

He’s charged with intoxication manslaughter. The Cowboys (7-6) learned about Brown’s death during their flight to Cincinnati on Saturday. Coach Jason Garrett told his team that the best way to honor him was to play well in a game with playoff implications for both teams. One of the visitors’ metal lockers at Paul Brown Stadium had a strip of white athletic tape with “53 JERRY BROWN” printed on it, a wooden stool inside sitting upside-down.

Sweet, along with Nik Aston and David Chavers, formed the most disruptive defensive line in the state, helping Goddard hold opponents fewer than 10 points per game. Cody French also had a breakout season, to no one’s surprise. We got brief glimpses of his star power in 2011, but it was on full display in 2012. He anchored Goddard’s ground-and-pound offense week in and week out, fueling an offense that scored 37.6 points per contest. When it was all said and done on Friday, this Rocket team accomplished what none other before it had done. They were the eighth to win a state championship, the sixth under Sam Jernigan, but they decided it. There wasn’t much of a celebration by an emotionally spent team. “I don’t remember crying this much other than maybe the day I was born,” defensive lineman Marcus Spears said. “With Josh’s situation and Jerry being gone, you felt it.” Players couldn’t keep the tragedy out of their thoughts during the game, finding their minds wandering on the bench. “I rarely let my emotions get the best of me,” fullback Lawrence Vickers said. “Today they did, but this was the place to do it.” Owner Jerry Jones described his team as grieving when it took the field. It was the second consecutive week that an

Last Sunday, Kansas City beat Carolina 27-21 one day after linebacker Jovan Belcher shot his girlfriend and then himself at the Chiefs’ practice complex. “There was a feeling of numbness on the field,” Garrett said. The Cowboys salvaged the game by scoring on their last two drives against the Bengals (7-6), who had won four in a row and had a chance to move into position for an AFC wildcard berth with a victory. Romo threw a 27-yard touchdown pass to Dez Bryant with 6:35 to go. Anthony Spencer’s sack of Andy Dalton forced a punt, and Romo led the Cowboys in range for Bailey’s winning kick. Romo fin-

A quick snap, a quicker pass and the tight end waltzed into the end zone.

Newcomer Josh Brown kicked field goals of 25, 33, 25 and 52 yards for Cincinnati, which wasted an opportunity to move ahead of Pittsburgh (76) for the second AFC wild card. “They came here in an emotional situation, and you knew they were going to fight all the way,” Bengals offensive tackle Andrew Whitworth said. “That game meant a lot to them. They played great.” Dalton was 20 of 33 for 206 yards with five sacks, one touchdown and an interception that Brandon Carr returned 37 yards to set up DeMarco Murray’s 1-yard touchdown dive in the second quarter.

Although the Texans have clinched at least a wild-card berth, they haven’t had a truly convincing win since October. This was a convincing defeat, however — although they got on the scoreboard in the third quarter with an 88-yard drive capped by Arian Foster’s 1-yard run.

Western Kentucky hires Petrino as football coach

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (AP) — Now that Bobby Petrino is back in the coaching ranks, he wants to make the most of his second chance. Petrino was introduced Monday as Western Kentucky’s new head football coach. The 51-year-old was fired by Arkansas in April for a “pattern of misleading” behavior following an accident in which the coach was injured while riding a motorcycle with his mistress as a passenger. “At this point in my career, it’s about getting back and coaching players,” Petrino said. “It just happened to open up at a place we love. “I hope it can be as long as possible.” Petrino had a 34-17 record at Arkansas before he was dismissed in the wake of the scandal. Petrino had an affair with former Razorback volleyball player Jessica Dorrell, who he later hired as a football assistant and gave $20,000 in gifts. Petrino said initially he was the only person on the motorcycle but later admitted to Dorrell’s presence. “I’m going to be able to sit down with mom and dad and the student-athlete and make them understand how this experience has made me a better coach, a better person and will make me understand their son better,” Petrino said during a packed news conference at Houchens-Smith Stadium. “I’m looking forward to the opportunity I’ll

for the championship game. There wasn’t nearly enough seating, it couldn’t handle the parking demands and it certainly couldn’t handle the media demands. I don’t blame Los Lunas for that, though. I blame the NMAA. The way championship-game venues are selected needs to change, and it needs to change quickly. You simply cannot continue hosting championship games at venues incapable of handling the amount of people who attend them. I don’t care if it’s neutral sites or a rotation of sites, something needs to change. And it needs to change soon.

be able to give student athletes when they make a mistake.” Petrino is replacing Willie Taggart, who left WKU last week to become South Florida’s coach. Western Kentucky gave Petrino a fouryear deal with a base annual salary of $850,000. If he terminates the deal at any time, he must re-pay the university $1.2 million in six monthly payments starting the month after he leaves. Athletic director Todd Stewart knows he might get criticized for hiring Petrino. He and Petrino had a long discussion over the weekend about the coach’s past. Stewart said Petrino was candid and honest about his conduct and took responsibility for his actions. He said Petrino’s contrition convinced him to give the coach a shot. “What it comes down is that he made a big mistake and he acknowledges that and he’s taken ownership of that,” Stewart said. “And he’s paid a heavy price for it. “But this is the United States of America, and we’re a country of second chances. I was confident after talking with him and with other people that he deserved a second chance and we are more than happy to give it to him.” Petrino, 75-26 overall as a college head coach, said he is looking forward to “building on the foundation and standards” that Taggart established.

Antonio Orozco was the only other victorious fighter out of Roswell, defeating Diego “Sandman” Bautista of Albuquerque in four rounds. Lizandro Feliciano engaged in a four-round slugfest against Ricardo Urquizo of Clovis and came away with the lone draw of the night. Perez was pleased overall with his fighters’ performance, but said switches in weight classes may have been detrimental to a few of the fighters. “I think they all performed good,” he said. “I think a couple of them lost the weight too late and it kind of weakened them, so they didn’t perform the way they would’ve if they had done it the right way.” Roswell Versus was the first pro fight in the city in nearly five years and, according to promoter Isidro Castillo, it won’t be the last. “I think the future of fights in Roswell will be great,” he said. “These kids are up-and-coming fighters and I look forward to coming back to Roswell and promoting another professional boxing event in the near future, probably within the next six to eight months.” cpowell@rdrnews.com

DEAR ABBY UNIVERSAL PRESS SYNDICATE

DEAR ABBY: I am recently married, and my husband and I have not consummated our marriage. I made it very clear that this would not be a part of our life together, and he agreed long before we took our vows. We sleep separately. Recently, my husband has become sullen and passive-aggressive. He tries to push the issue, to the point of making unwanted physical contact. He knew going in that I am extremely uncomfortable with this form of intimacy and that my views would not change. We love each other, but his behavior is starting to take a toll on me and the stress is straining our relationship. Please help.

DEAR ABBY: My husband wears a hairpiece. Unfortunately, it doesn’t look very real. Nearly every time we are in a public place, I notice somebody staring or laughing at it. I have talked to him about it only a couple of times, but each time he tells me how attached he is to it and how good it feels on his head. I want him to be happy, but I do not want him to be publicly ridiculed. Should I throw it away? WIFE OF A MAN WITH A “SECRET”

Senior discounts are intended to accommodate people who are presumably retired and living on a fixed income. That said, various restaurants make their own rules. If they are willing to comply when your mother’s boyfriend asks that everyone be included in the discount, it’s no reflection on you if he’s the one doing the asking and paying the bill.

Surprise: New insurance fee in health overhaul law

WASHINGTON (AP) — Your medical plan is facing an unexpected expense, so you probably are, too. It’s a new, $63-per-head fee to cushion the cost of covering people with pre-existing conditions under President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul. The charge, buried in a recent regulation, works out to tens of millions of dollars for the largest companies, employers say. Most of that is likely to be passed on to workers. Employee benefits lawyer Chantel Sheaks calls it a “sleeper issue” with significant financial consequences, particularly for large employers. “Especially at a time when we are facing economic uncertainty, (companies will) be hit with a multi-million dollar assessment without getting anything back for it,” said Sheaks, a principal at Buck Consultants, a Xerox subsidiary. Based on figures provided in the regulation, employer and individual health plans covering an estimated 190 million Americans could owe the per-person fee. The Obama administration says it is a temporary assessment levied for three years starting in 2014, designed to raise $25 billion. It starts at $63 and then

declines. Most of the money will go into a fund administered by the Health and Human Services Department. It will be used to cushion health insurance companies from the initial hard-to-predict costs of covering uninsured people with medical problems. Under the law, insurers will be forbidden from turning away the sick as of Jan. 1, 2014. The program “is intended to help millions of Americans purchase affordable health insurance, reduce unreimbursed usage of hospital and other medical facilities by the uninsured and thereby lower medical expenses and premiums for all,” the Obama administration says in the regulation. An accompanying media fact sheet issued Nov. 30 referred to “contributions” without detailing the total cost and scope of the program. Of the total pot, $5 billion will go directly to the U.S. Treasury, apparently to offset the cost of shoring up employer-sponsored coverage for early retirees. The $25 billion fee is part of a bigger package of taxes and fees to finance Obama’s expansion of coverage to the uninsured. It all comes to about $700 billion over 10 years, and includes higher Medicare taxes effective this Jan.

1 on individuals making more than $200,000 per year or couples making more than $250,000. People above those threshold amounts also face an additional 3.8 percent tax on their investment income. But the insurance fee had been overlooked as employers focused on other costs in the law, including fines for medium and large firms that don’t provide coverage. “This kind of came out of the blue and was a surprisingly large amount,” said Gretchen Young, senior vice president for health policy at the ERISA Industry Committee, a group that represents large employers on benefits issues. Word started getting out in the spring, said Young, but hard cost estimates surfaced only recently with the new regulation. It set the per capita rate at $5.25 per month, which works out to $63 a year. America’s Health Insurance Plans, the major industry trade group for health insurers, says the fund is an important program that will help stabilize the market and mitigate cost increases for consumers as the changes in Obama’s law take effect. But employers already offering coverage to their workers don’t see why they have to pony up for the

The redistribution puts the biggest companies on the hook for tens of millions of dollars. “It just adds on to everything else that is expected to increase health care costs,” said economist Paul Fronstin of the nonprofit Employee Benefit Research Institute. The fee will be assessed on all “major medical” insurance plans, including those provided by employers and those purchased individually by consumers. Large

Michigan Democrats make final right-to-work push LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Democrats in Michigan’s Legislature and congressional delegation made a final push Monday to stall Republican-led right-towork proposals that would limit the power of unions in the major Midwest industrial state. U.S. Sen. Carl Levin and Michigan Democrats in the U.S. House met with Gov. Rick Snyder Monday morning in Detroit and urged him to veto the legislation, which could get final passage as early as today when the Legislature reconvenes. Levin said Snyder pledged to “seriously consider” the group’s requests, including their demand for a statewide referendum on the issue. The measures have sailed through the legislative process since Thursday, when the state House and Senate introduced and swiftly approved plans to prohibit requiring non-

ALBUQUERQUE (AP) — PNM Resources’ New Mexico utility, PNM, Friday filed an agreement with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission that would settle its generation rate case with Navopache Electric Cooperative submitted in September 2011. The agreement requires approval from FERC and the Navopache board of directors. It does not impact retail rates for New Mexico residential or business customers. PNM has been the full requirements wholesale provider for Navopache since July 2000. As permitted by FERC rules, in April 2012, PNM began billing at the higher rates associated with the filed case, subject to refund. Revenues recorded by PNM since April have been aligned with the agreed-to annual increase of $5.3 million. This is expected to result in a $0.03 improvement in 2012 ongoing diluted earnings per share compared with 2011, which is in line with the previously issued 2012 guidance range of $0.00 - $0.05 and $0.04 for a full year of 2013. This “black box” settlement has an imputed rate base of $36.7 million and a 10 percent return on equity. The associated debt/equity ratio is 50-50. Under the settlement, the contract with Navopache is extended for ten years, and the rates are locked in until Jan. 1, 2015. “We are pleased with the outcome and the opportunity to continue serving Navopache,” said Pat Collawn, PNM Resources chairman, president and CEO. “The agreement also allows PNM to file an application for formula rates to be effective in 2015, which will enable us to keep revenues in line with costs in the future.”

employers will owe the fee directly. That’s because major companies usually pay upfront for most of the health care costs of their employees. It may not be apparent to workers, but the insurance company they deal with is basically an agent administering the plan for their employer. The fee will total $12 billion in 2014, $8 billion in 2015 and $5 billion in 2016. That means the per -head assessment would be smaller each year, around $40 in 2015 instead of $63.

NFL roundup: Cousins’ TD pass helps Redskins win Roswell Daily Record

LANDOVER, Md. (AP) — With Robert Griffin III sidelined with a sprained right knee, the Washington Redskins rallied behind backup Kirk Cousins to tie the game in the final minute of regulation, then Kai Forbath kicked a 34-yard field goal in overtime Sunday for a 31-28 victory over the Baltimore Ravens. Griffin was hurt at the end of a 13-yard scramble while attempting to lead the game-tying drive with the Redskins trailing 28-20. He left for one play, returned for four, then was no longer able to continue. Cousins stepped in and hit Pierre Garcon for an 11-yard touchdown pass, then ran in the 2-point conversion with 29 seconds to play. The Redskins have won four straight to improve to 7-6. The Ravens lost back-to-back games for the first time since 2009 and fell to 9-4.

Giants 52, Saints 27 EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — Rookie David Wilson returned a kickoff 97 yards for one touchdown, ran for two more scores and piled up 327 all-purpose yards and Eli Manning threw four touchdown passes to lead the Giants. The win allowed New York (8-5) to maintain its one-game lead in the NFC East over Washington and Dallas. The loss all but ended the playoff hopes of Drew Brees and the Saints (5-8), who turned the ball over four times in losing their third straight. Manning had TD passes of 6 yards to Martellus Bennett, 5 yards to Domenik Hixon, 25 yards to Hakeem Nicks and 10 yards to Victor Cruz. Wilson scored on runs of 6 and 52 yards and finished with 100 yards on 13 carries on the biggest day of his career. Seahawks 58, Cardinals 0 SEATTLE (AP) — Marshawn Lynch had three touchdown runs and Seattle set a franchise record for points. The Seahawks forced eight turnovers. Richard Sherman and Bobby Wagner each had two interceptions. Seattle (8-5) kept firm grasp on the final NFC wild-card spot and kept alive slim chances of catching San Francisco in the NFC West race. The Seahawks also picked up their first division victory and assured coach Pete Carroll of his first eight-win season in three

years with them. The 58-0 victory was the biggest shutout in Seattle’s history. Leon Washington’s 3-yard TD run with 2:32 left set a franchise record for points. Arizona (4-9) was shut out for the first time since 2003 against Seattle. The effortless performance will only raise questions about Ken Whisenhunt’s future as coach. Arizona lost its ninth straight overall.

Packers 27, Lions 20 GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — Green Bay is a victory away from clinching the NFC North title after beating Detroit. DaJuan Harris rushed for a score in his first NFL game, Aaron Rodgers added the longest TD run of his career, and Mike Daniels returned a fumble 43 yards as the Packers (9-4) opened a one-game lead over Chicago. Beat the Bears next weekend at Soldier Field, and Green Bay will win the NFC North for a second straight year. The loss was the fifth straight for Detroit (4-9). This wasn’t quite as excruciating as the previous three, though, when the Lions gave up fourth-quarter leads and fell by a total of nine points. The Packers have won 22 straight at home against the Lions, the longest streak in the NFL.

49ers 27, Dolphins 13 SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Frank Gore ran for a 1-yard touchdown and reached 1,000 yards rushing for the sixth time in his career. Gore finished with 63 yards, Anthony Dixon also had a 1-yard scoring run and Colin Kaepernick ran for a late 50-yard touchdown and threw for 185 yards in his fourth straight start since being promoted over Alex Smith. NFL sacks leader Aldon Smith added two to his total for 19 1/2, passing Fred Dean’s franchisebest single-season mark of 17 1/2 set in 1983. Smith also moved within three sacks of Michael Strahan’s seasonal NFL record set in 2001 with the New York Giants. Michael Crabtree had nine catches for 93 yards and rookie LaMichael James ran for 30 yards in a solid NFL debut for the 49ers (9-3-1). Panthers 30, Falcons 20 CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Cam

Newton threw for 287 yards and two touchdowns and scored on a 72-yard run. Newton piled up a career -high 116 yards on the ground as the Panthers racked up 475 total yards to avenge an early-season loss with a dominating performance against the NFC South champion Falcons. Carolina (4-9) came in with little to play for except to gain a measure of revenge on Falcons quarterback Matt R yan, whom they felt disrespected them after Atlanta’s 30-28 come-from-behind win earlier this season at the Georgia Dome. Ryan threw for 342 yards and two scores and had a costly fourth-quarter interception. The Panthers opened a 23-0 lead en route to snapping a fivegame losing streak against the Falcons. Vikings 21, Bears 14 MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Adrian Peterson rushed for 154 yards and two touchdowns and Harrison Smith returned an interception for a score. Peterson topped 100 yards before the first quarter was over, helping the Vikings (7-6) overcome another lackluster day from quarterback Christian Ponder to get a win that will keep their faint playoff hopes alive. Jay Cutler threw for 260 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions and couldn’t finish the game for the Bears (8-5), who have lost four of their last five. He took a wicked hit to the head from Everson Griffen in the fourth quarter, remained in the game for the rest of that drive, but was replaced by Jason Campbell with 3 minutes to play. Browns 30, Chiefs 7 CLEVELAND (AP) — Rookie Travis Benjamin’s electrifying 93yard punt return touchdown gave Cleveland momentum and the Browns won their third straight game. Benjamin’s game-changing runback helped the Browns (5-8) continue their resurgence under second-year coach Pat Shur mur, whose future in Cleveland remains uncertain.

1-yard TD runs for Cleveland. Jamaal Charles ran for 165 yards, breaking off an 80-yard TD run on the game’s first play for Kansas City. It was the first road game for the Chiefs (2-11) following linebacker Jovan Belcher’s suicide. The 25-year -old killed his girlfriend at their home before driving to the team’s practice facility on Dec. 1 and shooting himself.

Chargers 34, Steelers 24 PITTSBURGH (AP) — Philip Rivers threw three touchdown passes, two to Danario Alexander, and San Diego won for the first time in 15 regular-season visits to Pittsburgh. The Chargers (5-8), who snapped a four -game losing streak, dominated from the outset. They never let Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger get comfortable in his first game in nearly a month. Roethlisberger completed 22 of 42 passes for 285 yards and three second-half touchdowns. But he also threw an interception and had a botched screen pass turn into an easy San Diego score as Pittsburgh (7-6) hardly played like a team readying for a postseason run.

Colts 27, Titans 23 INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Andrew Luck led Indianapolis back from a 13-point second-half deficit and Adam Vinatieri made two fourthquarter field goals. Luck has now engineered six fourth-quarter comebacks for Indy (9-4). It wasn’t all Luck. Delone Carter cut the deficit to 20-14 with a 1-yard TD run on Indy’s opening possession of the second half. And after Pat McAfee’s 52-yard punt went out of bounds at the Titans 1-yard line, Cassius Vaughn jumped in front of Nate Washington, picked off Jake Locker’s pass and scored on a 3yard interception return to make it 21-20. Rob Bironas gave the Titans (49) a 23-21 lead with a 25-yard field goal, but Vinatieri hit from 53 yards to retake the lead and from 40 to seal it. Jets 17, Jaguars 10 JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Shonn Greene and Bilal Powell ran for short touchdowns and the New

ANNOUNCEMENTS

York Jets kept their postseason hopes alive. The Jets (6-7) were shut out at halftime for the second consecutive week, but they didn’t need to change quarterbacks to spark the offense this time. Instead, they just pounded the Jaguars (2-11) up the middle. Mark Sanchez, benched last week in a 7-6 win against Arizona, was hardly a factor. Neither was backup Tim Tebow, who spent his homecoming on the sideline. Greene scored on a 1-yard plunge in the third quarter, and Powell added a 4-yarder early in the fourth. Greene finished with 77 yards rushing. Powell added 78 yards on the ground.

Eagles 23, Buccaneers 21 TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Nick Foles threw a pair of touchdown passes in the final four minutes, including a 1-yarder to Jeremy Maclin with no time remaining. The rally allowed the Eagles to end an eight-game losing streak — their longest in 42 years. Foles completed 32 of 51 passes for 381 yards in his fourth start in place of the injured Michael Vick. The rookie threw an 11-yard TD pass to Clay Harbor with 3:55 remaining, then led the Eagles on a 64-yard game-winning drive after the Philadelphia defense forced a Tampa Bay punt. Doug Martin rushed for 128 yards and Josh Freeman shrugged off a slow start to throw for two second-half touchdowns to help Tampa Bay overcome a 10-0 halftime deficit and take a 21-10 lead on Martin’s 4-yard TD run midway through the fourth quarter.

Rams 15, Bills 12 ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) — Sam Bradford threw a 13-yard touchdown pass to Brandon Gibson with 48 seconds left. Bradford was 5 of 8 for 68 yards to cap a 14-play, 84-yard drive. St. Louis (6-6-1) continued its lateseason resurgence by winning its third straight for the first time since closing the 2006 season with three victories. The Bills (5-8) blew a lead in the final minute of the fourth quarter for the second time this season. They squandered a six-point lead in a 35-34 loss to Tennessee on Oct. 21.
