Coalition pushes lawmakers to support jobs bill ALBUQUERQUE (AP) — A coalition of elected officials, environmentalists and labor unions urged New Mexico’s congressional leaders on Monday to throw their support behind a federal jobs bill that could mean millions of dollars for water system improvements in the state. The coalition released a report that suggested much-needed investment in water management systems across the country, including those in New

Mexico, could lead to billions of dollars in economic activity and close to 1.9 million jobs over five years. The study predicted that New Mexico could see the creation of anywhere from 300 jobs to more than 11,000, depending on whether funds from the proposed American Jobs Act are shared based on infrastructure needs or a state’s unemployment level. Supporters said the legislation would present an

opportunity for New Mexico — a state humbled this year by exceptional drought and continued water supply pressures — to upgrade its infrastructure while creating jobs and limiting costs for ratepayers. Art de la Cruz, chairman of the Albuquerque Bernalillo County Water Utility Authority, stood in front of the metro area’s sewage treatment plant as he talked about the study. He said the plant, which

processes waste water from more than 500,000 customers, is in dire need of repairs and improvements. The price tag has been estimated at more than $200 million. “There are those who would wish to politicize investing in ourselves,” he said. “It is never a wrong time to do the right thing. It’s the absolute most important time to do this. Our country needs it, our infrastructure needs it.” The water utility has

come under fire twice this year for violating provisions of the Clean Water Act, spurring concerns by environmentalists that failure to correct the problems could ultimately affect the Rio Grande.

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Supreme Court agreed Monday to rule on Arizona’s controversial law targeting illegal immigrants, setting the stage for an election-year decision on an issue that is already shaping presidential politics. The justices said they will review a federal appeals court ruling that blocked several

tough provisions in the Arizona law. One of those requires that police, while enforcing other laws, question a person’s immigration status if officers suspect he is in the country illegally. The Obama administration challenged the Arizona law by arguing that regulating immigration is the job of the federal government, not states. Similar

Two men arrested after drive-by shooting

Two men were arrested after a drive-by shooting on Saturday night. Roswell Police officers responded to a call of shots fired in the 1200 block of West Hobbs Street. The officer observed two male subjects in a vehicle and became suspicious when it appeared the men were trying to elude him. The suspects were stopped at the corner of Deming Street and Union Avenue, only a few blocks away from the incident. A vehicle search was completed, and they were subsequently arrested. According to Roswell Police Department spokesman Officer Travis Holley, the time that elapsed from the incident to arrest was 15 minutes. Daniel Conales, 19, 706 N. Lea Ave., and Angelo Thompson, 22, 308 E. Onyx St. were charged with shooting at or from a motor vehicle.

Roswell Fire Chief James Salas will be retiring after 20 years of service with the Roswell Fire Department. Salas’ retirement will be effective Dec. 30. Salas became chief in April 2008. Prior to his r ole as chief, Salas served as deputy fire chief for more than a year. Feeling his career has come to a close in Roswell, Salas said he plans to leave the city to seek other ventures. A lifelong resident of the city, Salas attended Eastern New Mexico University-Roswell, and has held every position in the RFD from firefighter to chief. While he doesn’t believe he will work for another fire department, Salas said he plans to pursue firerelated work. “It’s all I ever wanted to do. I enjoy doing what I do,” he said. Beginning as a volunteer firefighter in Dexter, Salas’ career working for fire departments spans 26 years. Twenty of those years were spent working in Roswell. Salas said he bears countless memories of his time with the RFD. “I’ve had lots of good times. I’ve seen a lot of good things and bad things over the years. That’s been part of the job,” he said. The camaraderie amongst the RFD workers is what Salas will miss the most. “We get to know each other very well. We spend mor e time together here than we do with our families [given our shift work],” he said. Salas said he will also miss

Local resident to appear on Discovery Channel ‘Dirty Jobs’

A Roswell resident will appear on the in-depth Discovery Channel show, ‘Dirty Jobs,’ this evening.

Shawn Denny, southeast area fishery manager for the New Mexico Department of Game and Fish, will appear on the first episode of the show’s seventh season.

For his 155th episode, host Mike Rowe traveled to New Mexico to work as a fish squeezer with the

agency. Denny said the term, ‘fish squeezer’ is a slang used to describe those who work at a fish hatchery. The workers physically squeeze the sper m and egg out of a fish. The number of eggs per liter are then measured.

Rowe follows the agency as it catches walleye, a freshwater fish, out of Santa Rosa Lake, and harvests its sperm and eggs.

See SALAS, Page A6

Denny expressed his excitement in appearing on the show. “I want the department to get some exposure and people to see where their license dollars go,” he said. A portion of the sales of fishing and hunting licenses goes towards funding the agency, according to Denny. In Roswell, the episode will air on the Discovery Channel at 7 p.m.

You’re greedy: Romney, Gingrich tussle before Iowa

MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) — Trading accusations of greed, Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich challenged each other Monday to retur n millions made in private business as the race for the GOP presidential nomination tur ned increasingly acerbic and personal at the start of a three-week sprint to the Iowa caucuses. Far from Iowa, the two men campaigned miles apart from each other in next-up New Hampshire, where Romney has long dominated in polls but where Gingrich is aggressively working to make inroads. Romney called on Gin-

grich to return the estimated $1.6 million he received for providing strategic advice to Freddie Mac, the quasi-government agency that guarantees home mortgages. Gingrich has said he acted as a historian, not a lobbyist.

“That would make him the highest paid historian in history,” Romney told Fox News Channel during an interview from the Chez Vachon diner, a regular New Hampshire stop for presidential candidates. He suggested that Gingrich was an ultimate insider who leveraged his position as a former House speaker to line his pockets when he left office. Said Romney:

“One of the things that I think people recognize in Washington is that people go there to serve the people and then they stay there to serve themselves.” Gingrich, campaigning in nearby Londonderry, countered quickly, saying that Romney should give back the millions he made working at Bain Capital, a venture capital firm that sometimes laid people off as part of its efforts to make businesses more efficient. “If Gover nor Romney would give back all the money he’s ear ned from bankrupting companies and laying off employees See ROMNEY, Page A6

Adopt-a-thon a success, 33 animals found new homes JESSICA PALMER RECORD STAFF WRITER

A total of 33 animals will spend a war m, loving Christmas with their new human families thanks to the citizens of Roswell. Saturday’s Adopt-a-thon was rated a success. When the day began, Animal Services had some 52 adult dogs and 17 puppies. All the puppies found new homes as did some 14 adult dogs.

Director of Animal Services Joseph Pacheco reported the average rate of adoption is less than one a day. “We have many days when we get no adoptions,” he said. “It was the highest rate of adoption ever,” said Jo McIner ny of the Animal Welfare Alliance. “It think it was about what they would normally adopt out in a two month period of time.” Only two cats were adopted, but the emphasis

for this Adopt-a-thon was dogs. Finding homes for the adult dogs that come into their care is the most difficult for Animal Services. At the beginning of the Adopt-a-thon, Animal Services had 69 dogs -- not all were available the for adoption -- which means the number of dogs available for adoption was nearly cut in half. Mayor Del Jur ney referred to the results as “awesome.” He said, “I am

“I think it went well,” Pacheco said, “As well as it went, I’d like to be able to do two a year, one in spring and one in December.” Mayor Jurney agreed, “I think with what has happened this time, the partners (the City of Roswell and the Animal Welfare Alliance) will need to sit back and evaluate the possibility of doing this again.” In addition, Eastern New

Mexico Medical Center responded to the plea for blankets. Director of Environmental Services Bill Fladd said. “I believe in helping the community. I have standing orders with the staff to give used blankets to the needy. We always keep one box ready for natural disasters. We keep them to help out organizations such as Harvest Ministry and Animal Services.” j.palmer@roswell-record.com

Aggravated assault

Two Roswell High School students received arrest citations, Friday, after they set a third student on fire. According to the person reporting the incident, the two 17-year -olds were messing around with Germ-x spray, igniting the solution, which turned the cleaning fluid into a flame thrower. The person reporting the incident said she did not believed they meant to hurt the 16-year-old student; however, the father decided to press charges.

Larceny

Santa’s wife, Mrs. Claus, was reported missing, Sunday. She was taken from the 800 block of North Greenwood Avenue, along with a black tool box, miscellaneous Craftsman and Snap-on tools. The victim stated he was unsure when the incident occurred. He only discovered the loss when he went to get Mrs. Claus to decorate his front yard and realized she was missing. The value of all the stolen items is estimated at $400. •Police were dispatched to Sunset Villa, 1515 S. Sunset Ave., to take two reports of theft from a single victim. In the first incident, the employee said someone offered to help her while she was working and when she next checked her pockets, $200 worth of cash was missing. The employee also reported that someone broke into her vehicle, stealing $200 in cash.

Police received a walk-in report of identity theft, Friday. The victim said that he was shopping for cars. He received a shock when the credit check came through and he learned that someone in Florida had purchased a vehicle, valued at $26,000, using his name and not paid on the loan. The victim stated he had never been to Florida. •Police received a similar report also on Friday. In this instance, the victim received a call from a credit card company and was informed that a subject in San Jose, Calif., had opened a Pay-Pal account in his name and made $839 in charges on e-bay.

Burglary

Police were dispatched to the 900 block of South Sunset Avenue, Friday, after a subject or subjects broke into a vehicle by smashing the rear sliding window. The subjects damaged the dash and removed a Kenwood Pioneer AM-FM, CD player, an iPod Touch, two JLW 10-inch speakers and a JL audio amplifier. The value of missing items, along with damages, was estimated at $4,496. •Police were called to the 800 block of North Atkinson Avenue, Saturday, where a cordless Dewalt drill set, a Black and Deck-

Nothing was reported stolen; however, the window’s replacement costs are estimated at $400.

Stolen vehicle

An officer discovered a black utility trailer, without tires, in the ditch, near a convenience store on Sunday. The officer contacted the owner through vehicle registration, who said the locks had been cut, the tie down straps and spare tire had also been stolen. Anyone having information on these or any other crimes should contact Crime Stoppers, 888594-TIPS (8477). Callers may remain anonymous and could be eligible for a reward.

Delivery driver gets robbed on the job

A Dominos delivery driver was robbed around 9 p.m. Saturday in the 3000 block of West Purdue Drive. The victim reported to police that after he completed a delivery, he was walking back to his vehicle when he heard the sound of someone running up behind him. He was knocked to the ground. One of the two assailants punched him in the stomach and in the face while the second went through his pockets. One of the

suspects told the victim that he was lucky that the assailant had decided not to use his gun. The subjects got away with less than $20 worth of cash. A former employee explained that no delivery driver is permitted to carry more than $20 to make change as a means to prevent loss and to deter robbery. The driver was not seriously injured. The men ran north on Purdue after the assault. The victim said he did not

get a good look at his attackers; however, he said both wore dark hooded sweatshirts and were between 5-feet 9-inches tall. He also noted that they were young, in their 20s, and might possibly be Hispanic, but he could not be sure. The police are asking people who have information about this crime to contact the Roswell Police Department at 624-6770 or Crime Stoppers, 888-594TIPS (8477).

redistricting, presented the commissioners with five concepts at a public workshop, held on Nov. 29. The concepts are posted in the Chaves County Commission Chambers of the Administrative Center for the public to view. The item is listed on the agenda as a public hearing. Prior to making a decision, the commissioners will solicit any public concerns and opinions regarding the redistricting plans. The commission will also vote on an ordinance, which would authorize the issuance and sale of Tax-

able Industrial Revenue Bonds for the Anderson Wind Project. The ordinance also appears on the agenda as a public hearing item. The commission approved a resolution concer ning the intent of Chaves County to issue the bonds on behalf of Anderson in its regular business meeting on Oct. 20. Since the resolution was approved it was then scheduled for a public hearing. If approved, the ordinance would authorize the county to issue and sell the

IRBs in the maximum principle amount of $25,000,000 for the project. The IRBs would provide funds to finance the acquisition, construction and equipping of a wind far m for the purpose of generating electricity, according to the resolution. County Commissioner Stan Riggs told the Daily Record in October that IRBs have no liability to Chaves County. Although the bonds are issued with the county’s name on it, it is not the county’s responsibility to pay for them.

War nearly over, Obama says Iraq won’t stand alone Roswell Daily Record

WASHINGTON (AP) — Eager to put the long and divisive Iraq war to rest, President Barack Obama declared Monday “those days are over” with the last American troops heading home, but he pledged the U.S. would remain committed to the fledgling government they leave behind. He and Iraq’s leader somberly saluted America’s war dead at Arlington National Cemetery. “A war is ending,” the president said, standing with Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki at the White House. U.S. troops are leaving “with honor and with their heads held high,” said Obama, who strongly opposed the war as a candidate for the White House. The last American troops are to be out of Iraq by Dec. 31. Thousands of others are still in Afghanistan. Just 6,000 remain in Iraq, down from 170,000 at the war’s peak in 2007. The withdrawal will cap a war in which nearly 4,500 Americans were killed, roughly 32,000 were wounded, hundreds of billions of dollars were spent and the American political

debate was consumed until economic woes brought attention back home. Obama had already said weeks ago that he was pulling all troops by year’s end, leaving his appearance with al-Maliki to focus instead on what’s next — a relationship both leaders described as rich in shared interests, from education to oil, politics to security. To the Iraqi people, who still face massive challenges in rebuilding a society ripped apart by nearly nine years of war, Obama said: “You will not stand alone.” The United States, in fact, needs the help of Iraq in dealing with the volatile Middle East and two of neighbors in particular, Iran and Syria. In getting out of Iraq, Obama emphasized that “our strong presence in the Middle East endures” and the United States won’t soften in its defense of its interests. In the midst of a re-election run, Obama is using the war’s end to both honor the military’s sacrifice and to remind the nation the unpopular war is ending on his watch. He is to deliver

his war-is-over message in TV interviews on Tuesday and then again on Wednesday in remarks to troops at Fort Bragg, N.C. Obama opposed the war from the start and eventually rode that stand to the White House. In a 2002 speech during the months before the U.S.led invasion of Iraq began, when Obama was a U.S. senator from Illinois, he said that “What I am opposed to is a dumb war. What I am opposed to is a rash war.” On Monday, speaking as a commander in chief, Obama put the focus on Iraq’s future. “I think history will judge the original decision to go into Iraq,” Obama said. What’s clear, he added, is that because of the huge sacrifices by American soldiers and civilians and the courage of the Iraqi people, “we have now achieved an Iraq that is self-governing, that is inclusive and that has enormous potential.” Said al-Maliki: “Anyone who observes the nature of the relationship between the two countries will say that the relationship will

not end with the departure of the last American soldier.” Early signs of how Iraq may orient itself could come from how it handles troubles in Syria, where the United Nations says 4,000 people have been killed in a gover nment crackdown. The crisis has exposed differences in the U.S. and Iraqi positions: Obama says Syrian President Bashar Assad must step down. AlMaliki has not. “I do not have the right to ask a president to abdicate,” said al-Maliki. He suggested anew that Assad’s removal could lead to a civil war in Syria that could spread across the region and be difficult to control, calling for some other solution that would “avoid all the evils and the dangers.” Obama said he and alMaliki had “tactical disagreements” on Syria but shared the goals of free expression there without violence. Obama said he had no doubt that Iraq was acting in its own interests and not under the meddling influence of Iran. Tehran is Syria’s main

ence with British Foreign Secretary William Hague. “Given Iran’s behavior to date we do not expect them to comply but we are dealing with all of these provocations and concerning actions taken by Iran in close concert with our closest allies and partners,” she said. Panetta said the request to return the drone was appropriate. “I don’t expect that, that will happen,” he said. “But I think it’s important to make that request.” Neither Obama nor Clinton would provide details of the drone request, but diplomatic exchanges between Washington to Tehran are often handled by Switzerland, which rep-

resents U.S. interests in Iran. The State Department said Monday that the Swiss ambassador to Iran met with Iranian foreign ministry officials last week but refused to say what they discussed. Iran TV reported earlier Monday that Iranian experts were in the final stages of recovering data from the RQ-170 Sentinel, which went down in Iran earlier this month. Tehran has cited the capture as a victory for Iran and displayed the nearly intact drone on state TV. U.S. officials say the aircraft malfunctioned and was not brought down by Iran. Despite the incident, Clinton said the administration and its allies would

The Sunday event near Las Cruces included religious ceremonies, feasting and traditional dancing during the annual Our Lady of Guadalupe Fiesta. The image of Our Lady of Guadalupe was transported in a candlelit procession from La Casa del Pueblo to Sanctuario de Nuestra Senora de Guadalupe before daybreak Sunday morning.

The Las Cruces SunNews reports worshippers continued to make the journey throughout the day to pay their mountaintop respects to the Virgen de Guadalupe.

Another winter storm crosses New Mexico ALBUQUERQUE (AP) — The latest winter storm is making its way across New Mexico, bringing rain to Albuquerque and snow to the higher elevations in western and northern portions of the state.

backer. Obama also acknowledged that the United States is pressing Iran to return a U.S. surveillance drone captured by the country’s armed forces. State TV in Tehran reported Monday that Iranian experts were in the final stages of recovering data from it. The president would not comment on the national security implications for the United States, citing classified intelligence. But he said of the drone: “We have asked for it back. We’ll see how the Iranians respond.” Obama spoke repeatedly of Iraq as a nation demanding respect, describing it as a sovereign country and an equal partner. And al-Maliki said his nation still welcomed help, such as in drawing on American and other outside expertise so that Iraq can better exploit its own wealth, particularly in oil. Yet significant questions remain over the details of the security relationship between the U.S. and Iraq once all Americans troops are withdrawn. Iraqi lead-

ers have said they want U.S. military training assistance for their security forces but have been unable to agree on what type of help they’d like or what protections they would be willing to give American trainers.

About 1 million U.S. troops have cycled through Iraq since the war began.

Following their meetings at the White House, Obama and al-Maliki paid respects to the fallen at Arlington National Cemetery. At times, Obama’s language had the echoes of President George W. Bush, particularly in the potential for Iraq to help transform its part of the world. “Our goal is simply to make sure that Iraq succeeds, because we think a successful, democratic Iraq can be a model for the entire region,” Obama said. To all those who served in Iraq and to their families, Obama said the United States maintains a “moral obligation to all of them — to build a future worthy of their sacrifice.”

Obama calls on Iran to give back downed US drone WASHINGTON (AP) — The Obama administration said Monday it has delivered a formal request to Iran for the retur n of a U.S. surveillance drone captured by Iranian armed forces, but is not hopeful that Iran will comply. President Barack Obama said that the U.S. wants the top-secret aircraft back. “We have asked for it back. We’ll see how the Iranians respond,” Obama said during a White House news conference with Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki on Monday. He wouldn’t comment on what the Iranians might learn from studying the downed aircraft. Defense Secretary Leon

Carlsbad, Eddy County warned on rabid skunks SANTA FE (AP) — The New Mexico Department of Health officials are warning pet and livestock owners in Carlsbad and surrounding areas of Eddy County to get animals vaccinated after three skunks tested positive for rabies. State officials said Sunday that five unvaccinated dogs were bitten by the rabid skunks and were euthanized. The department says there have been seven rabid skunks and one rabid horse reported in Eddy County in 2011. Paul Ettestad (EHT’-thestad), the Department of Health’s public health veterinarian said a skunk positive for rabies means that there are other skunks and potentially other wildlife in the area that also have rabies. No known human exposures to the rabid skunks have been reported. Pit bulls kill 2 goats in Moriarty ALBUQUERQUE (AP) — A Moriarty family says two pit bulls got loose and killed

Panetta said it’s difficult to know “just frankly how much they’re going to be able to get from having obtained those parts.” Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton and Panetta said they’re not optimistic about getting the drone back because of recent Iranian behavior that Clinton said indicated “that the path that Iran seems to be going down is a dangerous one for themselves and the region.” “We submitted a formal request for the return of our lost equipment as we would in any situation to any government around the world,” Clinton told reporters at a State Department news confer-

The family would get together for your birthday dinner every birthday but today your chair will be empty. Since the day you were born you brought so much joy to all of us.

Clinton and Hague referred to the storming of British diplomatic compounds in Tehran, allegations that Iran tried to arrange the assassination of the Saudi ambassador to the United States, Iran’s ongoing support for militant groups and its continued defiance of demands to prove its nuclear program is peaceful.

OPINION

Need a job? Southeastern New Mexico needs you! Gobs of jobs in Hobbs! An email like that gets your attention. Drive around Hobbs, says alert reader Jesse Monsey, and you’ll see banners and electronic signs saying, “Now Hiring” and even “$100 sign-on bonus.” The local police have offered a lavish signing bonus, and the city was forced to increase benefits to keep employees. Even the casino is offering tuition assistance and scheduling flexibility to students who will take a job. Jesse was responding to a recent column in which I quoted a business leader saying that if you could fog a mirror, you could find a job in Artesia. “The reality here is that we are desperate for workers,” he says. What kind of jobs? For starters, law enforcement, corrections and security. Engineers and other energy- or technologyrelated jobs. Retail, construc-

tion, you name it. People don’t realize that a boom raises all boats — quickly — and expands the need for everything. I got my first newspaper job in a boom. We’re inclined to think of southeastern New Mexico as that oil boom-and-bust place, but in the last few years it’s diversified in a big way and now counts biofuels and nuclear fuel processing, along with a host of associated operations. The region’s earned its title, the Energyplex. I did some checking, and Lea County’s gross receipts revenues are 150 percent that of Sandoval

County, which includes Rio Rancho, the state’s third largest city. State labor economists peg unemployment numbers at 4.3 percent in Lea County and 4.1 percent in Eddy County, and those are mostly people moving in to find jobs, says Jesse. They don’t need to look for long. Between September and October, Hobbs added 303 jobs, and these people and their families are probably hunkered down in RVs because there’s no place to live. All you idled home builders, where are you? Jesse says he bought a fixerupper, remodeled it, and rented it in one day after getting more than 200 calls. “People were begging for it,” he says. “One lady actually broke down into tears.” He rented to a senior engineer who had moved from Houston.

ground on a four -story hotel, and a drive through town reveals other corporate chains.) “Hobbs is now the most expensive place to live in New Mexico,” he says. “Take that, Taos and Santa Fe! Uppity has a new capital.” I don’t think Hobbs can best Santa Fe in uppity — Hobbsans would have to take lessons in being aloof and unfriendly. Like others down Hobbs- and Artesia-way, Jesse wonders why few people outside the region know about this: “The New Mexico media blackout of Hobbs is bizarre and blatant.” There’s a reason for that. It begins with the Department of Workforce Solutions. (Hey, Martinez administration, this silly name originated with the last administration. Do us all a favor and rename it the Labor Department, like it used to be.) The department issues its

numbers in averages and pays most attention to the largest cities. If you look really hard, you’ll see this one vague reference about 1,800 new jobs in the mining industry, whatever that means. The job gain or loss in smaller communities is buried in a long table. This is what the media rely on for information. Look on the department’s website, and there’s advice about job skills, resumes and the like but not a word about where to look. It’s a disservice to job seekers. Jesse also touches on Santa Fe’s regulatory burden on the Energyplex, which makes people in the southeast feel unloved, as they look across the border at Texas. That’s a whole ‘nother column, as Texans would say. If you have 400 resumes out, and you’re about to be living in your car, check out Hobbs, Artesia and the Energyplex. © New Mexico News Services 2011

Haiti has UN to blame

Haiti’s recent history has us wondering if the voodoo-practicing nation is cursed. Amid its ongoing efforts to recover from the January 2010 earthquake, the Caribbean country is now suffering from “the worst cholera outbreak in recent history.” More than 6,700 people have died and nearly 500,000 have contracted the bacterial infection that causes severe diarrhea and vomiting. The World Health Organization believes that the epidemic could last another two to three years. The United States, which has provided billions of dollars in assistance to Haiti over the years, has spent $75 million in health and sanitation programs related to the cholera outbreak. But the cholera curse could have been avoided because it originated with blue helmets, not black magic. Haiti hadn’t experienced a case of cholera in more than 50 years — until the United Nations Stabilization Mission in Haiti was established to save the Haitian people. Several independent studies, including one conducted by the Centers for Diseases Control, identified Nepalese peacekeepers as the most likely source of the cholera outbreak. Their U.N. camp was dumping feces into a tributary of the Artibonite River, which is used by nearby communities for drinking, bathing and irrigation. Even the U.N.’s own investigation confirmed that the cholera strains in Nepal and Haiti were “a perfect match.” Despite this overwhelming evidence, the U.N. hasn’t offered so much as an apology to the victims. The status-of-forces agreement between the U.N. and Haiti requires a standing committee to address complaints against U.N. personnel. It hasn’t bothered to set up the committee. The U.N.’s mission in Haiti demonstrates everything that’s wrong with international aid. Good intentions too often trump accountability and results. More often than not, aid programs cause more problems than they solve. Dr. Dambisa Moyo, a Zambian economist and best-selling author of “Dead Aid: Why Aid Is Not Working and How There Is a Better Way for Africa,” has documented how aid has held back developing countries. She wrote, “There is no country — anywhere in the world — that has meaningfully reduced poverty and spurred significant and sustainable levels of economic growth by relying on aid.” That’s why we are pleased to see the Institute for Justice and Democracy in Haiti has filed a $250 million complaint against the United Nations for damages stemming from the cholera outbreak. We don’t expect the cholera petition in Haiti to go very far. Inter national law grants the U.N. immunity from civil and criminal penalties. Yet, the petition is a symbolic step toward increased accountability in international aid. It’s about time the U.N. stopped being “subject only to the regulation of its own good intentions.” Guest Editorial The Kinston (N.C.) Free Press DEAR DOCTOR K: I have carpal tunnel syndrome. My doctor wants me to consider surgery, but I’d like to learn about other treatment options first. DEAR READER: In carpal tunnel syndrome, a nerve that leads from your neck down your arm to your hand becomes trapped, or pinched, in your wrist. The nerve passes through a little tunnel (the carpal tunnel) in the wrist. The tunnel is made of very tough tissue. Usually it is wide enough to allow the nerve to pass through it easily. But sometimes the tunnel gets narrowed and the nerve gets pinched. The classic symptoms are pain, weakness and tingling in the fingers. Often these symptoms occur at night and awaken you from sleep. As the condition progresses, you

Most people improve with one or more of them: — Self-help. Rest the affected hand for at least two weeks, avoiding any activities that make your symptoms worse. In particular, avoid prolonged periods of gripping and pinching. — Wear a splint to keep your wrist straight. If it is impractical for you to wear one during the day, wear one at night for sure. People can sleep in the strangest positions, and some positions flex the wrist and pinch the nerve harder. You can find splints at most pharmacies. — Hand exercises may help.

Psychologist and educator Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi believes “The march of technology is motivated by the hope that it will lead to happiness at the end of the rainbow.” We live in a time where there’s a new innovation every day in the field of technology. Better iPhones come out in less than a year, next-generation gaming consoles are constantly amazing us with their increased realness and the Internet is forever adapting and changing to enhance the digital world. Crowds clamor to be the first to get the newest innovation, even asking Santa’s “on the home front” shoppers to include them on their gift giving list. But how many times do we stop to think about the people constantly pushing the limits of technology to create the latest marvel? Amanda Davis, reference librarian, examines two books about

Government’s role changes over time

Dear Editor: I’m really getting tired of right-wing constitutional purists telling me, “If it’s not in the Constitution then the federal government has no business doing it.” Really? What about the Interstate Highway System? The federal government built it. They maintain it through the highway trust fund. But there’s nothing in the Constitution that says anything about a highway system. How about the FAA and our air traffic controllers? Should the federal government be in the business of controlling air traffic and administering airports and aircraft safety? The last time I read the Constitution it didn’t say anything about airplanes or air travel. Should the federal government be in the business of space exploration? Where does it say anything about NASA in the Constitution?

the people behind the technology. Douglas Edwards was a journalist who ended up as Google’s first director of marketing and brand management. Although there have been other books written about Google, none came from an insider’s prospective. In “I’m Feeling Lucky: The Confessions of Google Employee Number 59,” he takes the reader behind the scenes of the Inter net’s biggest search engine. Edwards’ journey will give the reader a new respect for how far Google has come and see it as not just a faceless giant corporation, but a business that was started by two people who were passionate and hard-working in their care of it. Employee Number 59 describes his adjustment to a work environment that provides free meals, exercise facilities and even masseuses, but which expects much from their employees in return. This environment has worked surprisingly well for the company as Google is one of the tops in ter ms of innovation. Although there is some technological behind-the-scenes information, it is conveyed with the reader in mind, so that it is never difficult to follow. Advances in technology can’t be mentioned without thinking of Apple products and therefore its founder, Steve Jobs. Walter Isaacson’s biography “Steve Jobs” is based on more than 40 interviews conducted over a two-year period which included interviews with Jobs as well as more than a hundred family members, friends, adversaries, competitors and colleagues. During this time Isaacson not only came to know Jobs as a genius, but also as a man,

including his Buddhist beliefs and how that conflicted with the amount of wealth he accumulated. Isaacson covers information from the creation and evolution of the iPad and iPhone to the days of his illness and death. Steve Jobs stands as the ultimate icon of inventiveness and applied imagination, connecting creativity with technology. He built his company where leaps of the imagination were combined with remarkable feats of engineering. Both of these books are good reads about the people behind the technology who have made our lives easier in ways we may take for granted.

Pierre became an activist when she was just 13 years old, leading a protest of Haitian sugar-cane cutters. She was fearless. Tall and imposing, she had a strong voice, and had no problem staring into the eyes of armed police officers who were calling Haitians derogatory names and telling them to stop. For her outspokenness, Pierre suffered. Her life had been threatened several times. One day, according to The Associated Press, someone slugged her while she was in her car at a stoplight. She may have been an international leader in peace, but for many, her very existence was a problem. In the end, it wasn’t her enemies who took her away at such a young age.

Pierre was both black and Latina, a double whammy for heart disease. But did the very busy Pierre take the time to find out what she could have done to take care of herself? Did she change her diet? Did she make exercise a priority? Did she learn how to meditate or take yoga? I am sure Pierre would have said she was too busy saving people’s lives to take the time to check on her own heart. But if only she had taken her physical heart ailments more seriously, perhaps she would still be here. Around the world, Sonia Pierre’s legacy is to remain fearless and stand up for the disenfranchised. But for me, her legacy will be to take the time to care for my heart — my emotional heart and my physical one. I don’t want to be a statistic the way dear Sonia Pierre has just become.

$1T-plus spending bill taking shape in Congress WASHINGTON (AP) — Weary after a year of partisan bickering, lawmakers reached a tentative agreement Monday on a sprawling $1 trillion-plus spending bill that chips away at military and environmental spending but denies conservatives many of the policy changes they wanted on social issues, government regulations and health care. Environmentalists succeeded in stopping industry forces from blocking new clean air regulations and a new clean water regulation opposed by

over the years at Bain, then I would be glad to listen to him,” Gingrich said. “But I bet you $10 — not $10,000 — that he won’t take the offer.” That was a dig at Romney’s offer of a $10,000 wager with Rick Perry at Saturday night’s debate. Unbowed, Romney chided Gingrich anew, saying: “There’s a big difference between working in the private economy and working on K Street, and working as a lobbyist and working as a legislator, and working to connect businesses with gover nment.” Romney’s campaign also pressed the notion of Gingrich as a Washington insider, with news releases labeling him an “unreliable leader” and pictured with House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi. Romney’s stepped-up criticism of Gingrich came two days after the new front-runner in the GOP nomination fight held his own during a nationally televised debate, turning aside attacks from Romney and other rivals. In recent weeks, Gingrich has risen to the top of polls nationally and in early voting states. He’s even started to eat into Romney’s lead in New Hampshire, a mustwin state for the for mer Massachusetts governor. Time is running short for Romney to curb Gingrich’s rise, with the Jan. 3 caucuses in Iowa, and the Jan. 10 New Hampshire primary coming early next month. Romney has been promising a more aggressive campaign style. “We aren’t running any negative ads ... but we may,” Romney said Monday. “This is, after all, politics. There’s no whining in politics.”

The immigration case before the Supreme Court stems from the Obama administration’s furious Romney’s allies already are running a negative ad campaign in Iowa assailing Gingrich’s record in Washington. Also piling on is Texas Rep. Ron Paul, who has surged into the top three in Iowa polls. Paul on Monday released a Web ad accusing Gingrich of “selling access” in Washington and including a clip of Gingrich calling himself an insider. Seeking to repair vulnerabilities, Gingrich spent part of the day working to alleviate concerns about some of his personal baggage that could hurt him with social conservatives who make up the base of the GOP primary electorate. He sent a letter to the Family Leader, a key group in Iowa, pledging that he would stay faithful to his wife. Gingrich has been married three times and has acknowledged a previous extramarital affair. He also left little doubt that he’s trying to challenge Romney’s lead even in New Hampshire, where Romney has devoted more time and resources than anywhere else. Gingrich said he’s the front-runner in national polls and noted that he’s now leading in South Carolina and Florida. He told his audience gathered inside Insight Technology, a Londonderry military contractor: “I’m behind a little bit here, so I need your help to finish off here and win here. It’s going to be quite a race.” Speaking to reporters later, Gingrich was asked whether Romney was vulnerable in New Hampshire and responded: “Every voter is going to reserve the right to change their mind up to the last minute, and anybody who thinks any lead is safe anywhere is

Drafted behind closed doors, the proposed bill would pay for the war in Afghanistan but give the Pentagon just a 1 percent boost in annual spending, while the Environmental Protection Agency’s budget would be cut by 3.5 percent. The bill also covers everything from money to combat AIDS and famine in Africa, patrolling the U.S.-Mexico border, operations of national parks, and budget increases for

legal fight against a patchwork of state laws targeting illegal immigrants. Arizona wants the justices to allow the state to begin enforcing measures that have been blocked by lower courts at the administration’s request. The state says that the federal government isn’t doing enough to address illegal immigration and that border states are suffering disproportionately. In urging the court to hear the immigration case, Arizona says the administration’s contention that states “are powerless to use their own resources to

enforce federal immigration standards without the express blessing of the federal executive goes to the heart of our nation’s system of dual sovereignty and cooperative federalism.” Many other state and local governments have taken steps aimed at reducing the effects of illegal immigration, the state says. But the administration argues that the various legal challenges making their way through the system provide a reason to wait and see how other courts rule.

very foolish.” For much of the year, Romney’s campaign has sought to lower expectations that he’ll win in Iowa, where he spent millions on his 2008 bid only to come in second. But his campaign also hasn’t been shy about its organizational strength in New Hampshire, and a narrow victory or loss here would be a serious blow. His campaign downplayed any potential Gingrich rise here. “New Hampshire voters do not decide until very

late in the process,” said Romney spokesman Ryan Williams. “We understood that, which is why we spent several months building a grass-roots organization that is second to none. We are ear ning every vote.”

Jan Brewer signed the immigration measure, S.B. 1070, into law in April 2010. The administration sued in July to block the law from taking effect. In April, a three-judge panel of the 9th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals in San Francisco upheld a federal judge’s ruling halting enforcement of several provisions of the Arizona law. Among the blocked provisions: requiring all immigrants to obtain or carry immigration registration papers; making it a state criminal offense for an illegal immigrant to mer New Hampshire Republican Sen. Bob Smith is perhaps Gingrich’s most prominent Granite State surrogate, although Smith is now a Florida resident who supported Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry in 2004. A Gingrich victory would also upset decades of political experience here that suggests local voters demand regular face time in smaller venues with successful candidates. In his sporadic visits to the state this year, he’s gener-

licans opposed a smaller bundle of spending bills.

The most controversial riders, lawmakers said, were dumped overboard due to opposition from Obama and Democrats controlling the Senate. But Democrats realize that they have to show some flexibility to win GOP votes in the House. That means Democrats are likely to accept, reluctantly, a rider that blocks the city of Washington, D.C., from funding abortions for poor women. How much funding will ultimately be earmarked for water projects has yet to be settled, but the demands are great, Bloom said. Members of New Mexico’s congressional delegation have already been busy trying to secure funding for everything from a series of high-dollar Indian water rights settlements to restoration projects along some of the state’s impaired waterways. seek work or hold a job; and allowing police to arrest suspected illegal immigrants without a warrant. In October, the federal appeals court in Atlanta blocked parts of the Alabama law that forced public schools to check the immigration status of students and allowed police to file criminal charges against people who are unable to prove their citizenship.

U.S., 11-182. ally traded the more intimate retail stops for larger venues where he can reach hundreds of voters at a time. Local organizers say Gingrich will refuse to do an event unless the group can promise an audience of at least 200 people. Gingrich spokesman R.C. Hammond said there is no such formal requirement and that this was perhaps a case of a wellintentioned campaign volunteer who was trying to boost crowd sizes.

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — Reality television star Richard Hatch has been released from a Rhode Island prison after serving a nine-month sentence for failing to pay back taxes. A state prison official says the winner of the first season of the CBS reality show “Survivor” was released Monday. Hatch served six weeks at a state minimum-security facility as a transition after spending most of his sentence in federal prison. The Newport

Lohan: I should have listened

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Lindsay Lohan says she should have listened to her advisers, but her stubbornness led to many of her well-documented

legal problems. Lohan made the comments in the January-February issue of Playboy magazine, which features mostly nude photos and a brief story. Pictures leaked online Friday, prompting the magazine to release the issue early on its website. Lohan returns to court Wednesday to update a judge on her compliance with strict new probation requirements that include working at a morgue.

SPORTS Roswell Daily Record

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — DeMar co Murray left the Dallas Cowboys locker room on crutches, his face shrouded by a gray hoodie and his right leg immobilized by a protective boot. The running back knew his record-setting rookie season is over. His teamm at e s l e f t wo n d er i n g whether their season is falling apart, too. The Cowboys lost a secon d st r ai g h t g a m e o n Sunday night, but what really stings is the way they did it. The defense gave up two touchdowns in the final 3:14. Miles Austin failed to haul in a potential winning touchdown; coach J as o n G a r r et t a g ai n struggled with his clock management; and rookie kicker Dan Bailey had a last-second kick blocked. A l l in a h o m e g am e aga i n s t t h e N ew Yo rk Giants, a team that had lost four straight games, and in a game that would

decide first place in the NFC East. “You always think about w ou ld’ ve, s h ou l d’ ve, could’ve when you don’t win,” linebacker Bradie James said. “I’m going to b e t hi nkin g ab ou t th is one.” Then again, the Cowb oy s sh ou ld be get tin g used to these kinds of finishes. Dal la s ha s le d in th e fourth quarter of five of its six losses this season, and in eight of its nine losses under Garrett. E v en b i g le ads a r e n’ t safe with this club. This was the thir d time this season the Cowboys have b lo wn a f ou r th -qu ar t er lead of at least 12 points; to put in perspective how unusual that is, it happened only twice over the franchise’s previous 51 seasons. “The nature of our team is w e’ ve pla ye d a l ot o f clo se ga mes ,” Ga rr e tt said. “We’ve won maybe

J u st because you’ve figured out how to do it once doesn’t mean you’re going to do it all the time. I think that’s the nature of the National Football League, we just need to find ways to do it much more often than we have.” N o w h er e’ s t h e r ea ll y crazy part.

NA T I O N A L BRIEFS ORANGE TAKE OVER NO. 1 SPOT

Jim Boeheim has been coaching for 35 years and one thing he has learned is that players are able to focus on basketball even when there is a whirlwind around them. The Syracuse program has been in the headlines since former assistant coach Bernie Fine was alleged to have molested two former ball boys. Quietly, the Orange have found a way to the top of The Associated Press’ Top 25. “Young kids constantly have different things going in their lives, school, relationships, how they are playing, a million things go through their minds,” Boeheim said Monday. “They have the ability to focus on things they have to do and they get it done. It’s a great thing about kids, that older people tend to get caught up or get unfocused, get caught up more in outside influences and can’t separate them. Kids aren’t like that. They focus on what they control and go forward. It’s a good thing about being young.” The Orange (10-0) jumped from third to No. 1 following losses this weekend by Kentucky and Ohio State. They received 51 first-place votes from the 65-member national media panel. It’s the fourth time they’ve topped the poll and the first time since a one-week appearance late in 2009-10. Syracuse was No. 1 in the 1987-88 preseason poll and for six weeks in 1989-90. Ohio State (8-1), which didn’t have star center Jared Sullinger in the loss to Kansas, stayed second, while Kentucky (8-1) dropped from first to third following the buzzer-beating loss to Indiana. The Hoosiers, one of four newcomers this week, moved in at 18th, their first appearance since 2007-08. Ohio State, which hasn’t had Sullinger for two games because of back spasms, received seven first-place votes, three more than Kentucky. Louisville, which had two No. 1 votes, and North Carolina, which had one, switched places from last week at fourth and fifth. Baylor, Duke, Xavier, Connecticut and Missouri rounded out the top 10. Marquette was 11th followed by Kansas, Florida, Wisconsin, Pittsburgh, Georgetown, Mississippi State, Indiana, Illinois and Michigan. The last of the ranked teams were Michigan State, Texas A&M, Alabama, Murray State and Creighton and Vanderbilt, who were tied for 25th.

Cowboys kicker Dan Bailey (5) hangs his head after the Giants blocked a go-ahead field goal late in the Cowboys’ loss to NFC East foe New York, Sunday.

DENVER (AP) — Just when it looked like the Chicago Bears weren’t going to give Tim Tebow the chance to beat them in overtime, they couldn’t play keep away. Chicago won the toss and Caleb Hanie completed three quick passes to put the Bears in field goal range. Then, Marion Barber, filling in for Matt Forte, burst through the line for a first down. Just then, linebacker Wesley Woodyard reached out in desperation and tugged on his right arm. The ball popped loose and Elvis Dumervil smothered it at the Broncos 34. “He gashed us on that play, and somehow I just had to make a play,” Woodyard said. “That’s what it’s all about, making plays at the end of the game.” That’s something the Broncos (85) have perfected. Tebow drove the Broncos downfield and Matt Prater, whose 59-

yard field goal with 3 seconds left in regulation tied it, booted a 51yarder with 8:34 left in overtime to give Denver an improbable 13-10 win. “If you believe,” Tebow said, “then unbelievable things can sometimes be possible.” Prater’s third straight walk-off field goal gave the Broncos their sixth consecutive win and moved them into sole possession of first place in the AFC West at 8-5, a game ahead of Oakland. Tebow improved to 7-1 since taking over as the starter in Denver, and six of those wins have involved second-half comebacks, five of them necessitating fourth-quarter rallies, three of which went to overtime. No other quarterback in NFL history has produced six fourth-quarter comebacks in his first 11 NFL

Seattle downs St. Louis

SEATTLE (AP) — Doug Baldwin picked a national stage to remind the rest of the NFL what they passed up in last April’s draft. Baldwin, an undrafted rookie out of Stanford, blocked a first-quarter punt that was returned by Michael Robinson 17 yards for a touchdown, then caught a 29-yard TD pass from Tarvaris Jackson in the third quarter as the Seattle Seahawks pulled away for a 30-13 win over the staggering St. Louis Rams on Monday night. Seattle (6-7) won for the fourth time in five games and kept alive its slim hopes for reaching the postseason. The Seahawks likely would need to win out to potentially make the playoffs a reality, but they’re at least back in the conversation after a 2-6 start. Marshawn Lynch topped 100 yards rushing for the fifth time in the last six games, finishing with 115 on 23 carries. He scored a touchdown in his ninth straight game on a 16-yard run with 2:57 left to put away Seattle’s 13th win in its last 14 games against the Rams. Seahawks fans threw bags of Skittles into the end zone as Lynch celebrated his ninth rushing touchdown this season, and he tied a franchise record with nine consecutive games with a TD.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The losses kept mounting, the tension kept growing and ultimately Kansas City Chiefs general manager Scott Pioli decided the status quo was no longer good enough. It was time to part ways with Todd Haley. The Chiefs fired the combustible head coach Monday with the team Haley led to a surprising AFC West title less than a year ago stuck at the bottom of the division following a series of devastating injuries and discouraging blowouts. The Chiefs dropped to 5-8 after Sunday’s 37-10 loss to the New York Jets, their fifth loss in six games. Kansas City committed 11 penalties for 128 yards in the dismal performance, including a 15-yarder on Haley for unsportsmanlike conduct that may have sealed his

Mavs still waiting to get Odom, Carter on court

DALLAS (AP) — The Dallas Mavericks are still waiting for their new players to get on the court. Free agent Vince Carter was a spectator at the Mavericks’ practice for the second day in a row Monday before the eight-time NBA All-Star finally signed his expected contract. Lamar Odom, the 6-foot-10 forward acquired from the Los Angeles Lakers, was not there yet. Less than two weeks before the NBA champion Mavericks play their season opener with a Christmas Day rematch against the Miami Heat, coach Rick Carlisle still hasn’t had a full team for practice. “It’s important, but logistics are logistics. We’ve got to submit ourselves to what the rules are. If you trade for a guy, you can’t just Star Trek beam him here for practice,” Carlisle said. “We will engage these guys as quickly and as effectively as we can. Before you know it, we’ll be another week into this and they’ll be right in the middle of it.” Carlisle expects Carter and Odom to both take part in the team’s media day activities Tuesday. The 34-year-old Carter had to clear waivers after playing for Phoenix last season. The Mavericks announced Monday night that Carter had signed a contract that reunites him with Jason Kidd, his teammate for three seasons in New Jersey. Dallas didn’t provide details of Carter’s deal, but it is expected to be a mid-level exception of $3 million for this season. Carter has 20,250 career points, eighth among active players and 35th on the NBA career loss. He was originally the fifth overall selection in the 1998 draft by Toronto, and has played 925 career games for the Raptors, New Jersey, Orlando and Phoenix. Carter also attended practice in Dallas on Sunday, when the team confirmed they had acquired Odom, last season’s Sixth Man of the Year, without losing a player in return. “We love the deal. ... It’s a very positive deal for us because we’re talking about a player as diversified skill-wise as anybody in the league right now, particularly given his size,” Carlisle said. “He’s always been a really difficult matchup for us, was a key part of their team and we really feel like he’ll fit in well here.” The Lakers get an $8.9 million trade exception for the 32-year-old Odom, who is going into the third year of a four-year deal. He has averaged 14.6 points and 8.9 rebounds in 829 games over 12 NBA seasons, four with the Clippers, one in Miami and the last seven with the Lakers. Kobe Bryant certainly wasn’t happy, especially Odom being sent so cheaply to the Mavericks, who swept the Lakers in last season’s playoffs. Mavericks center Brendan Haywood shrugged off Bryant’s reaction. “My reaction is we’re very happy to get Lamar,” Carlisle said. Veteran forward Brian Cardinal joined

We d i dn ’ t m a ke enough plays in the end.” T h e o f f e n se p u t u p enough points to win, but s t i l l h ad en o u g h c ost l y m i s ta k es to co s t g u y s s o m e sl e ep . I t s t ar t e d early, with Doug Fr ee’s missed block that led to quarterback Tony Romo g e t ti ng t wi s te d a r o un d and toppling into the end zone for a safety. And it lasted late, with Austin watching that pass flutter past him, perhaps not able to find that extra gear because of the hamstring injuries that have limited him all season. But the part that causes t h e mo s t g n a s hi n g of t e et h am o n g C o wb o y s fans is Garrett’s continued problems managing the clock. NBC cameras showed Sunday night that team o wn er J e r ry Jo n e s an d e v er y o n e i n h i s b o o th knew when to call a timeout, but it took the coach about 15 seconds to do it. Jones was so frustrated a f te r th e g a me th a t he only issued a brief statement. He didn’t answer the team for practice Monday after re-signing with Dallas. He will get the veteran minimum of just over $1.3 million. Cardinal joined the Mavericks last year as a free agent, when the 6-foot-8 forward averaged 2.6 points, 1.1 rebounds and 10.8 minutes in 56 games. He has played 412 games over 11 seasons with Detroit, Washington, Golden State, Memphis, Minnesota and Dallas. “I’m excited to be back, I’m exciting to be with these guys and this group,” Cardinal said. “I missed a few days, but it’s excited to be back with these guys and be out there on the court.” Odom helps Dallas recover from the departure of center Tyson Chandler, who went to the New York Knicks in a sign-andtrade deal that opened an exception to get Odom. But the Mavericks expect him to be more than just a replacement for Chandler. “He’s a guy that’s 6-10 that can do everything on the floor, extremely athletic and skilled,” Haywood said. “He can play the 3, 4, 5, 2, he can even play the point and initiate the offense. So I think Lamar definitely helps this team out a lot.” Odom joins what could be one of the NBA’s best frontcourts when he’s paired with NBA Finals MVP Dirk Nowitzki and Shawn Marion. “He can play every position on the floor in my opinion, so look he’s going to have a lot of things to learn our perimeter positions and our big positions,” Carlisle said. “But he’ll do it and he won’t have a problem with it, because he’s just got that good a feel for the game. “We believe that there are a lot of possibilities with Lamar,” he said. “He can score, pass, make plays, defend, rebound, all those things are really healthy for diversity of your team. Without him being here and having a chance to do things on the floor, I can’t give you exact answers, but I’m excited about the possibilities.”

starts. Broncos coach John Fox said Tebow has “competitive greatness. He wants the ball in clutch time.” After failing to score on their first dozen possessions, the Broncos faced the possibility of their first home shutout in the team’s 52-year history. Instead, they erased a 10-0 deficit in the final 2:08 of regulation. “I think we’re rewriting the book on ‘keep fighting,”’ Fox said. “Our guys never blink. They remain positive. As bad as it looked today — we didn’t play well; we had some drops. But the guy who dropped a couple of passes caught the ... touchdown. That’s kind of the M.O. on this bunch.” Tebow threw a 10-yard touchdown strike to Demaryius Thomas, who had three drops, and then got the ball back with 53 seconds left after Barber saved the Broncos precious time by going out of bounds when the Bears were trying to run out the clock. Denver was out of timeouts after Thomas’ touchdown and had to try an onside kick, which the Broncos couldn’t recover.

Column: Irresistible force Tebow pushes NFL around

By JIM LITKE AP Sports Columnist Tim Tebow is doing what decades of conventional NFL wisdom said couldn’t be done. He’s winning game after game playing the most important position on the field less like a quarterback than an irresistible force of nature. Seven times in their last eight games with Tebow in charge, the Broncos have somehow won when they shouldn’t have — six times coming back in the second half, five times in the fourth quarter and three of those in overtime. Along the way, he’s befuddled critics, delighted his growing flock of fans and flummoxed opposing coaches, not to mention his own on occasion. He’s dazzled analysts and left it to teammates to explain the chainreaction of events — freak turnovers by opponents, sparkling catches by young receivers, Tebow’s own pinball runs through defenders — that have made the closing minutes of Denver games must-see TV. The latest one might have been the most improbable. Trailing the Chicago Bears 10-0 with 4:34 left Sunday, the Broncos faced the possibility of their first home shutout in team history. In short order, Tebow cobbled together a 63-yard touchdown drive, Denver failed to recover the ensuing onside kick attempt, but got the ball back after a punt with more time left than anyone expected. That’s because

rushing on 11 carries by halftime, including dashes of 11 yards twice and 10 yards once. He was limited to just 42 yards on 15 carries when the teams met a few weeks ago and the Rams were trying to exploit the Seahawks’ secondary. This time, Jackson disappeared in the second half — aside from a 50yard catch-and-run on a screen pass — and finished with 63 yards rushing on 20 carries. He stood on the sidelines with his legs crossed during a goal-line possession in the fourth quarter while Cadillac Williams got the first crack at scoring The Rams eventually ran five plays from the 1 without Jackson touching the ball — thanks to a taunting penalty on Seattle’s Richard Sherman. Jackson finally got a carry on a second third-and-goal and scored,

Chicago’s Marion Barber inexplicably ran out of bounds on a carry — stopping the clock — instead of simply falling to the ground. “That’s usually something that never happens with a veteran running back,” Denver linebacker Wesley Woodyard said. “It’s just like things go our way.” But as Woodyard and the rest of the Broncos have come to believe, things weren’t done going their way. From his 20-yard line, Tebow again marched the Broncos back to the Bears 41, where Matt Prater coolly connected on a 59yard field goal to tie the game at 10. In the extra period, Chicago was methodically grinding up a wearying Broncos defense when Barber bashed through a hole for another first down — only to have the ball stripped at the last second by Woodyard and recovered by teammate Elvis Dumervil at the Broncos 34. From there, Tebow put together one more helter-skelter drive to reach the Bears 33, where Prater converted a slightly less eye-popping 51-yard field goal for the win. That’s three straight Broncos’ scoring drives — after they failed in a dozen straight series in regulation — and two uncharacteristic Chicago miscues in less than five minutes. “If you believe,” he said after the Chicago win, “then unbelievable things can sometimes be possible.” Mixing his football and his faith drew attention to Tebow long before he arrived in the NFL. The son of missionaries, he was born in the Philippines and has returned there numerous times on missions of his own. Like his four siblings, Tebow was homeschooled in Jacksonville, Fla. But because of a state law requiring home-schooled students to play high school football in the district where they lived, he found himself at the center of a controversy when he moved into an apartment in nearby St. Johns County with his mother so he could play prep football at powerhouse Nease High. Recruited by Florida, he won two national titles and the Heisman Trophy, but was also scorned for frequently praising or thanking God in postgame interviews. He often chalked biblical verses, such as John 3:16, on the eye-black strips players apply to their cheekbones to cut glare, prompting the NCAA to ban such messages the season after he finished his college career. “His great strength,” said Chap Clark, a professor at Fuller Theological Seminary in Pasadena, Calif., “is that even people who don’t agree with his faith at all play their best around him.” Almost as controversial was Tebow’s unorthodox approach to playing quarterback. Despite a limited ability to read defenses, questionable footwork and an erratic throwing arm, he thrived in thenGators coach Urban Meyer’s version of a spread offense at Florida, but failed to impress many NFL scouts. Most projected Tebow as a third- or fourth-round pick at best, and many suspected his only shot at the NFL would be to change positions. His penchant to tuck the ball under his arm and take off down the field, they said, would expose him to faster, harder-hitting defenders who would punish him. Instead of being a dual threat, Tebow was no threat at all last season and for the first few games of this one. But with the Broncos skidding at 1-4 with front-line quarterback Kyle Orton, first-year Denver coach John Fox grudgingly called on Tebow in the second half of an October game against the Chargers. Since then, it’s been an almost-unhindered ride up the elevator to the top of the AFC West and an even more unlikely playoff spot.

but only after screaming on the sideline. Jackson’s score pulled the Rams within 23-13, but the outcome was already decided. Baldwin’s influence on the game was evident from the start, when he took a pitch from Leon Washington on a kickoff reverse and returned it beyond the 40. Seattle was later forced to punt, but it was Baldwin racing from the outside to down the punt at the Rams 6. Then he made the biggest of his three fine special teams plays. Coming almost entirely unblocked off the right end, Baldwin took a punt off the foot of Donnie Jones. The bounding ball hopped up into the arms of Robinson, who went the final 17 yards for an early 7-0 Seahawks lead.

Roswell Daily Record But on second down after the two-minute warning, Barber cut outside and was pushed out, stopping the clock. “That’s usually something that never happens with a veteran running back,” Woodyard said. “It’s just like things go our way.” Barber wasn’t around after the game to talk about his blunders. “We all know what type of player Marion is,” Bears coach Lovie Smith said. “All running backs are trying to get a couple more yards here and there. But we have to know the situation. In that situation, we have to be able to keep the ball inbounds. He’ll tell you that. I know we’d all like to have that one back.” The Bears would have to punt, and Tebow got the ball back at his 20 and went to work, not needing to go far with Prater’s strong leg in the thin air. He drove the Broncos 39 yards for Prater’s kick, which he rocketed through the uprights to tie it at 10. The Bears (7-6) won the toss in overtime and quickly got into field goal range before Barber, who rushed for 108 yards but will be remembered for his two late mistakes, coughed up the football. “He was making a tough

run, trying to get extra yards,” Hanie said. “It’s unfortunate. You want to stay in right there but that didn’t lose the game for us. We lost it by not generating more points.” Tebow, who also led Denver to wins in OT at Miami and San Diego, took the Broncos from their 34 to the Chicago 33, and Prater sent the stadium into delirium. The Bears, whose playoff hopes are faltering, are 0-3 since Hanie replaced an injured Jay Cutler, the former Broncos QB who has a broken thumb on his throwing hand and is out indefinitely. With Matt Forte sidelined by a knee injury, Barber broke a scoreless tie in the third quarter with a 9-yard touchdown run and added a 16-yard gain on a screen to set up Robbie Gould’s team-record 57-yard field goal on the first snap of the fourth quarter. “We gave it away,” Devin Hester said. “We were up 10 points.” That’s not enough when Tebow’s around. “Those last five minutes, if it’s within reach for us to get it, we feel like we’re going to win,” Woodyard said. “For all the Tebow haters: You’d better start believing.”

How Tebow does what he does is still something of a mystery, still so tough to quantify that his fiercest supporters call it divine intervention and everyone else, his coach included, still struggles to explain. Right after the win over Chicago, Fox called it simply, “competitive greatness. He wants the ball in clutch time.” A day later, Fox talked about how defenses often go into “prevent” mode late in games — “you know, they’re daring us to pass.” That’s what conventional wisdom suggests teams do against a quarterback who consistently ranks near the bottom of the league by most passing measures. And that’s what makes “Tebow Time” even more confounding. In the 8 1/2 games he’s played as a starter, Tebow has taken the Broncos on scoring drives on just 12 of 76 offensive possessions through the first three quarters. On the opening drives of fourth quarters, the number is just 1 of 9. But for the remainder of the fourth quarter and into overtime, he’s choreographed the Broncos to touchdowns or field goals an incredible 16 of 28 times. Over that span, the defense has managed 10 takeaways, but half, notably, came in the final period or in overtime. Around the league, opposing coaches scan scoreboards for late Broncos scores and their players rush back through the tunnel to catch the final few moments. A week ago, in case anyone missed the final score, 49ers lineman Mike Iupati walked through the San Francisco locker room hollering, “Tim Tebow, 6-1, baby!” And now he’s 7-1 in the pass-happy NFL, the best story the league has going. When he got his first real shot at the job, watching Tebow play was something you did while peeking through the spaces between the fingers covering your eyes. It’s still the best way to watch the first three quarters. But after that, well, don’t dare take your eyes off him.

NFL Roundup: Yates rallies Texans to win Roswell Daily Record

CINCINNATI (AP) — A rookie got the Houston Texans to a place they’ve never known, one that seemed ready to disappear when their top two quarterbacks got hurt last month. Instead, T.J. Yates made a little Lone Star history. The fifth-round draft pick led the most important drive in Texans history on Sunday, taking Houston 80 yards in little more than 2 minutes with no timeouts against the Cincinnati Bengals. His 6-yard touchdown pass with 2 seconds left gave Houston a 2019 win and a division championship. Everyone knew who the star was in the Texans’ biggest moment. “We realized what was on the line there,” tight end Owen Daniels said. “It is unbelievable what T.J. was able to do, finding people down the field, avoiding the rush and making plays. It was so smooth. I’ve never seen anything like it.” The Texans (10-3) have never done anything like it during their 10-year history as an expansion team. They’ve won seven in a row despite losing quarterbacks Matt Schaub and Matt Leinart in consecutive games to season-ending injuries. In stepped Yates, who took them the final step in his second NFL start. “It’s pretty crazy,” Yates said. “A lot of people in this organization have waited a long time for this. This is a special day for this team and this organization.” In a few wild minutes on Sunday, it all came together. They needed to win and have Tennessee lose at home to New Orleans to clinch their first AFC South title. They celebrated on the field when Yates brought the first half of the playoff equation. Then, still in uniform, they huddled around a television in the locker room and watched the Titans lose 22-17. They screamed collectively then passed out championship caps and T -shirts. Receiver Andre Johnson, one of the most longsuffering Texans, got a game ball. “I’m just happy for the city of Houston,” said Johnson, who was sidelined by a pulled hamstring. “They deserve it. We’ve got great fans who have stuck it out with us. Words really can’t describe it. It’s something I’ve been waiting for a long time.” It seems the Bengals (7-6) are going to have another year of waiting. They’ve lost four of their last five, and now need help in order to get the AFC’s final wildcard berth. “It’s a defeated feeling today,” safety Chris Crocker said. “I can’t even put into words how bad this hurt.” Cincinnati knew it had to beat a team with a rookie quarterback in order to stay in the playoff chase. With their season on the line, the Bengals couldn’t do it. “A rookie quarterback beat us today,” Crocker said. “He did it with both his arm and his feet. I don’t even know what to say. Wow.” Wow, indeed. Yates scrambled 17 yards on third-and-15 to keep the final drive going. A pass interference penalty on Adam “Pacman” Jones put the ball at the 6-yard line with 12 seconds left. After an incompletion, Kevin Walter lined up wide right, cut to the middle of the field and was uncovered at

said. “Todd Haley is a good football coach. I’ll say that. What we need to do is figure out what direction we’re headed in and how we’re going to continue to make progress, how we can get some consistency back.” Haley took over a team that won six games the previous two seasons under Herm Edwards, and he leaves with a 19-27 record in his first NFL head coaching job. But despite winning the AFC West last season, it’s hard to tell if the team improved under his watch. The quarterback situation was a mess, even when Matt Cassel was healthy, and the offensive line has three players in Ryan Lilja, Barry Richardson and

the goal line for the winning catch. Yates finished 26 of 44 for 300 yards with two touchdowns and one interception.

SAINTS 22, TITANS 17 At Nashville, Tenn., Drew Brees threw two touchdown passes to Marques Colston in the fourth quarter to lead New Orleans to its fifth straight victory. The NFC South-leading Saints (10-3) had little trouble picking up yards, but struggled to score until Brees and Colston connected on passes of 35 and 28 yards. The Titans (7-6) twice had the ball in the final minutes with a chance to win. The first time, New Orleans stopped backup Jake Locker on fourth-and-1 at the Saints 24 with 2:18 left. The second time, Jo-Lonn Dunbar sacked a scrambling Locker on third-and-goal as time expired. Brees threw for 347 yards and joined Hall of Famer Johnny Unitas as the only quarterbacks to throw a touchdown pass in 40 straight games. Locker replaced Matt Hasselbeck, who hurt his left calf in the second quarter. PATRIOTS 34, REDSKINS 27 At Landover, Md., Tom Brady threw for 357 yards and three touchdowns, and Rob Gronkowski set an NFL single-season record for most touchdown catches by a tight end as New England won its fifth straight. Gronkowski snagged his 14th and 15th scoring receptions, moving him past Antonio Gates and Vernon Davis. Gates had 13 in 2004, and Davis matched that total in 2009. The Patriots (10-3) again overcame their bend-but-don’t-break defense. The Redskins drove to the New England 5-yard line late before Rex Grossman’s pass went off Santana Moss’ hands and was intercepted by Jerod Mayo with 22 seconds to play. Washington (4-9) has lost eight of its last nine.

RAVENS 24, COLTS 10 At Baltimore, Terrell Suggs had three sacks and forced three fumbles to keep Indianapolis winless. Baltimore (10-3) limited the Colts (0-13) to 167 yards — 53 through three quarters. Were it not for a touchdown on the game’s final play, Indianapolis would have been held without a TD for the second time since the 2003 season opener. Joe Flacco threw two touchdown passes and Ray Rice ran for 103 yards and a score to help the Ravens win their fourth straight and improve to 7-0 at home. Baltimore is tied with Pittsburgh for the lead in the AFC North. The Ravens hold the tiebreaker with two wins over the Steelers. Dan Orlovsky was 17 for 37 for 136 yards and an interception. He was sacked four times.

FALCONS 31, PANTHERS 23 At Charlotte, N.C., Matt Ryan threw two fourth-quarter touchdown passes to rookie Julio Jones and Atlanta erased a 16point deficit. Ryan threw for 320 yards and tied a career high with four touchdowns passing. Atlanta (85) avoided a costly loss to stay alive in the NFC wild card race. For the Panthers (4-8), it was the sixth time this season they’ve lost after being ahead or tied in the fourth quarter. In October

Casey Wiegmann who may not be back next season. Despite a background on offense, Haley only managed to coax the unit into an average of 293.8 yards, which ranked 28th in the league, and 177.4 yards through the air — 30th out of 32 teams. Besides the lousy performance on the field, it was no secret there was friction between Pioli and Haley, although the GM insisted Monday that they had “a good working relationship.” Haley was the offensive coordinator for Arizona when the Cardinals won the NFC title in 2008. He also was an assistant coach with Dallas, Chicago and the New York Jets. The Chiefs won’t decide on a permanent head coach until after the season, but Crennel could make a good

Houston quarterback T.J. Yates (13) throws a pass during his team’s win over the Bengals, Sunday. they fell 31-17 to Atlanta despite leading 17-14 going into the fourth quarter. Cam Newton threw two touchdown passes as the Panthers built a 23-7 halftime lead, but was intercepted twice in the second half.

LIONS 34, VIKINGS 28 At Detroit, backup quarterback Joe Webb fumbled deep in Lions territory in the final seconds, and Detroit escaped with a muchneeded victory. Matthew Stafford threw for two scores in the first quarter to give Detroit one of its three-touchdown leads. The Lions (8-5) had lost five of seven, and played defensive tackle without Ndamukong Suh, who was serving the second game of his twogame suspension. Webb led the Vikings (2-11) to TDs on his first two drives after rookie Christian Ponder was benched. On first-and-goal from the 1 with 9 seconds left, a replay appeared to show DeAndre Levy grabbing Webb’s facemask, but no flag was thrown. The ball popped free at about the 11, and was batted back toward midfield by Detroit’s Stephen Tulloch. Webb ran it down and tried to pick it up, but the ball came loose again and Cliff Avril finally fell on it to end the game. PACKERS 46, RAIDERS 16 At Green Bay, Wis., Aaron Rodgers threw for 281 yards with two touchdowns and an interception in less than three full quarters’ worth of work, Ryan Grant had two touchdowns rushing and Charles Woodson picked off a pass against his former team. With the win, the Packers ran their record to 13-0 — leaving them three games short of completing a perfect regular season. And they did it with a near-perfect performance. Carson Palmer threw for 245 yards with a touchdown and four interceptions for the Raiders (76), who looked like anything but legitimate contenders in the AFC West. The biggest concer n for the

argument for the job if he can rally the team over the final three weeks. Kansas City is still mathematically alive in the AFC West. “We’ve made some progress the last couple years and we’re at the point some of that progress has slowed down,” Pioli said. “I don’t put timeframes on things, but clearly I need to get to work too, because if we’re going to be a good football team and continue to get better and consistently compete for championships, we need to have a good roster.”

Dolphins fire Sparano

MIAMI (AP) — Tony Sparano has been fired as coach of the Miami Dolphins, the third dismissal of an NFL coach in the past two weeks. The move came Monday,

Packers was an apparent left knee injury to wide receiver Greg Jennings in the third quarter.

CHARGERS 37, BILLS 10 At San Diego, Philip Rivers threw three touchdown passes, two to Antonio Gates, and the Chargers kept their playoff hopes alive. Buf falo (5-8) lost its sixth straight game and was eliminated from playoff contention for the 12th straight year. The Chargers (6-7) have won two straight following their six-game losing streak. Rivers was 24 of 33 for 240 yards. Ryan Mathews gained 114 yards on 20 carries, the first time he’s had three straight 100-yard games.

CARDINALS 21, 49ERS 19 At Glendale, Ariz., John Skelton stepped in for the injured Kevin Kolb and threw for 282 yards and three touchdowns, and the Arizona Cardinals rallied to hand the San Francisco 49ers just their third loss of the season. Larry Fitzgerald had seven catches for 149 yards, including a 46-yarder for a touchdown and a 53-yarder to set up the goahead score in the fifth victory in six games for Arizona (6-7). Kolb left the game after a blow to the head on Arizona’s third play. Skelton, benched after throwing three interceptions in the Cardinals’ 23-7 loss at San Francisco on Nov. 20, had a 60yard TD pass to Early Doucet and a 3-yard toss to Andre Roberts for what proved to be the winning score early in the fourth quarter.

EAGLES 26, DOLPHINS 10 At Miami, Philadelphia forced three turnovers while scoring four times during a nine-minute span in the second quarter and totaled nine sacks. Michael Vick, back after missing three games with broken ribs, threw for 208 yards and a touchdown. LeSean McCoy scored two touchdowns to hike his season total to 17. The Eagles (5-8) won for only the second time in the past six games and need a sweep of the

one day after the Dolphins lost to the Philadelphia Eagles to fall to 4-9. The defeat ended a recent surge by the Dolphins after they lost their first seven games. With two other teams already in the market for a new coach, owner Stephen Ross didn’t want to wait any longer to start shopping. Sparano’s dismissal came hours after the Kansas City Chiefs fired coach Todd Haley. Jacksonville fired coach Jack Del Rio on Nov. 29. Todd Bowles, who had been Miami’s assistant head coach and secondary coach, will be the interim head coach for the final three games, starting Sunday at Buffalo. Jeff Ireland will remain as general manager and take part in the coaching search. The Dolphins are assured of their third con-

final three games to have any chance of repeating as NFC East champions. The Dolphins (4-9) had a three-game home winning streak snapped and sank deeper into last place in the AFC East. Philadelphia sent quarterback Matt Moore to the sideline in the second half with a head injury.

JETS 37, CHIEFS 10 At East Rutherford, N.J., Mark Sanchez threw two touchdown passes and ran for two more scores as the Jets kept pace in the AFC playoff race. The Jets got things started quickly by scoring 28 points in the first half and were helped by an inept Chiefs offense that managed 4 total yards in the first two quarters. Shonn Greene had a seasonhigh 129 yards rushing and a score, and Santonio Holmes and LaDainian Tomlinson each caught touchdown passes for the Jets (8-5), who have won three straight and improved to 6-1 at home. Tyler Palko was sacked five times for the Jets in a miserable outing by the penalty-plagued Chiefs (5-8), a week after he ear ned his first victory as a starter against Chicago.

JAGUARS 41, BUCCANEERS 14 At Jacksonville, Fla., Maurice Jones-Drew scored four times, setting the franchise record for career touchdowns, and Jacksonville rolled up 41 unanswered points. Jones-Drew finished with 136 total yards, including 85 on the ground against one of the league’s worst run defenses. Tampa Bay’s bigger problem in its seventh consecutive loss was turnovers. The Buccaneers (4-9) had seven of them, helping set up each of Jacksonville’s four TDs in the second quarter. The Jaguars (4-9), who hadn’t scored more than 20 points all season, scored four times in a span of 7:32. They scored on offense, defense and special teams in the same game for the first time since Nov. 1, 1998, at Baltimore.

secutive losing season, the longest such streak since the 1960s. They’ll miss the playoffs for the ninth time in 10 years. “The results speak for themselves,” Ross said at a hastily called news conference. “We’re looking to becoming a winning organization, and I thought this was the best time to make the change and let us go in a direction that will allow us to become that.” Ross is expected to pursue a coach with star power. Among those mentioned as possible candidates are Bill Cowher, Jeff Fisher and Jon Gruden. “I’d like to find a young Don Shula if that’s possible,” Ross said with a smile. In Sparano’s first season as an NFL head coach, he led the Dolphins to a surprising 11-5 record, the 2008 AFC East title and

their only playoff game since 2001. He departs with a record of 29-32. Shortly before he was fired, Sparano held his regular Monday news conference. When asked if he wanted to comment on reports he would be fired after the season, he said no. “I want to coach against the Buffalo Bills this week. That’s my sole focus,” he said. Sparano was popular with his players, but a dismal home record and declining attendance accelerated his departure. The Dolphins lost 12 of 13 home games during one stretch. Sparano’s teams tended to be dull, too. Last year Miami ranked third-worst in the NFL in scoring, and this year their offense often sputtered.

Always ask, “What is your best price on this?” * Don’t expect to have the original packaging with the item. * I always present my driver’s license when buying jewelry; the pawnshop may require that you do so. * The store may offer layaway, in which you pay a minimum amount each month. There may be a small layaway fee. Shelly in Texas Dear Heloise: My secret for keeping my husband’s toes warm during the winter?

Pentagon’s first female policy chief quitting WASHINGTON (AP) — Michele Flour noy, the most senior female Pentagon official in history, told The Associated Press on Monday she is stepping down as the chief policy adviser to Defense Secretary Leon Panetta. In an interview in her Pentagon office, Flournoy said she feels compelled to “rebalance” her personal life after three years in one of the most demanding national security jobs in Washington. “By nature it is an allconsuming job and it does take a toll on the family,” she said, adding that she considers her time as the undersecretary of defense for policy as “probably the highlight of my professional life.” She was the first woman ever to hold the post when she started the job in February 2009, two years after co-founding and serving as the first president of the Center for a New American Security, a prominent think tank. Flournoy, who turns 51 on Wednesday, said her resignation will be effective in February and that she intends to play an informal role next year in supporting President Barack Obama’s re-election effort. “I’m very much planning on giving the full measure of support to this president and this campaign, and I’m going to work as much as I can from the

outside to do that,” she said. While she has made no specific arrangements with the Obama campaign, Flournoy ticked off a list of possible informal roles, including public speaking and private advising. Flournoy said she hopes to return to government service one day but that at this point her family needs her to take a break. Her husband, W. Scott Gould, is the deputy secretary of Veterans Affairs, responsible for a nationwide system of health care services, benefits programs, and national cemeteries for veterans and their dependents. They have children aged 14, 12 and 9. “Right now I need to recalibrate a little bit and invest a little bit more in the family account for a while,” she said. “We’ve been going flat out for more than three years,” including the period after the 2008 election in which both she and her husband were part of the Obama transition team — she at the Pentagon and he at the Department of Veterans Affairs. Flournoy said her children understand that their parents’ hard-charging jobs are “once-in-a-lifetime opportunities” at an important juncture in American history, but it has required dif ficult trade-offs.

“You can make the sacrifice for a period, but at some point the cost becomes too high and you need to rebalance,” she said. In a statement issued while traveling abroad, Panetta said Flournoy has made a lasting imprint on the Pentagon. “I will personally miss her valued counsel, but I understand the stresses and strains that holding senior administration positions can have on families,” Panetta said. Flour noy is a widely respected national security thinker. She ear ned a bachelor’s degree in social studies at Harvard University and a master’s degree in international relations at Balliol College at Oxford University. She served in the Pentagon in the 1990s as deputy assistant secretary of defense for strategy. Michael O’Hanlon, a defense expert at the Brookings Institution, said in an interview that he believes Flournoy is a top 10 contender to become secretary of defense under a future Democratic administration. “She is still relatively young, and that may at some level hold her back,” he said, adding that her personal views on major national security issues are not well known. “Because she has been

so loyal and so careful and so well prepared in sticking to administration thinking publicly, we don’t necessarily know what her private thinking or counsel is on issues such as the rise of China and the future of the war on terror,” he said. In her current job she has kept a relatively low public profile while working on some of the most dif ficult and entangled national security problems facing the Pentagon, including concluding the war in Iraq, reinvigorating the U.S. military campaign in Afghanistan and adjusting American defense strategy as part of the coming reductions in the national security budget. While the last U.S. troops are due to depart Iraq before the end of this month, the war’s aftermath is likely to be a prominent issue for Flournoy’s successor. During her interview with the AP, Obama was holding a news conference at the White House with Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki. Obama heralded the end of the war and cautioned other countries not to interfere with Iraq’s sovereignty — a reference to U.S. concer ns about undue Iranian influence. Flournoy said she planned to meet later in the day with Iraqi defense officials to discuss the way for-

VATICAN CITY (AP) — Pope Benedict XVI plans to travel to Cuba and Mexico before Easter next year, saying he hopes his visit will strengthen the faith and encourage Catholics there to seek justice and hope. Benedict confirmed his travel plans Monday during a Mass in St. Peter’s Basilica honoring Mexico’s patron saint, the Virgin of Guadalupe. The late Pope John Paul II made historic trips to both Cuba and Mexico. He became the first pope to visit Mexico when he landed in 1979 on his first foreign trip and he made a groundbreaking tour of communist Cuba in 1998. Benedict has visited Latin America once before — Brazil in 2007 — but the 84-year-old has focused his travel mostly in Europe, to

both spare him from long trips and to focus his ef forts on a continent where Christianity has fallen by the wayside. His decision to return to Latin America shows the Vatican’s concern about cementing the faith in a region that claims about half of the world’s Catholics, but where evangelical Pentecostal movements are making major inroads. In his homily, Benedict said it was his responsibility as pope to help confirm the faith in such an important Catholic stronghold. He said he hoped the region would continue to create new missionaries who would help build a society “rooted in the development of the common good, the triumph of love and the spread of justice.” “With these wishes, and

ward. “I am actually comfortable with where we are” in the relationship with Iraq, she said, adding that one of her first reports as president of the Center for a New American Security in 2007 was on how to

responsibly end the war. Asked what plans she has made for her life after the Pentagon, Flournoy said, “Absolutely none,” other than catching up on sleep and spending more time with her children.

supported by the help of divine providence, I intend to make an apostolic trip before Easter to Mexico and Cuba,” he said as applause erupted in St. Peter’s Basilica. He said it was a “precious time to evangelize with a solid faith, a lively hope and ardent charity.” Mexico is second only to Brazil as the world’s top Catholic nation. The church in Cuba, meanwhile, has taken on a prominent role recently in negotiating the release of dozens of jailed dissidents. Although Cuba under Fidel Castro never severed ties with the Vatican, relations between the communist government and the church were strained for decades. Tensions eased in the early 1990s, however, when the gover nment removed references to athe-

ism in the constitution and allowed believers of all faiths to join the Communist Party. John Paul’s 1998 visit to Cuba further improved relations, and top Vatican cardinals have made frequent visits to the island since then. Next year Cuban Catholics will celebrate the 400th anniversary of the discovery of the image of the Virgin of Charity of Cobre, Cuba’s patron saint. In Havana, Catholics were joyful at the news. “His visit to our country is a cause for pride and satisfaction, and it is an important thing for the revolution,” said 47-year-old Ramon Parte, who was paying homage Monday to an image of the Virgin of Charity that was on a nationwide tour.
