Gov: Keep guns from mentally ill

Vol. 121, No. 303 75¢ Daily / $1.25 Sunday

ALBUQUERQUE (AP) — New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez said the state should consider taking steps to prevent mentally ill people from getting guns. The governor tells The Albuquerque Journal in a statement that she will pursue a proposal during the legislative session next year that would require the state to provide information on people who have been found by a court to be mentally ill or have been committed to an institution. Martinez responded to questions posed by the

newspaper about gun control after last week’s Connecticut school shooting that left 20 young students and six adults dead. The gunman also killed his mother and himself. Asked about the suddenly renewed political push to increase gun restrictions in the United States, Martinez emphasized the need to better recognize and battle mental health problems to curb gun violence. The New Mexico governor said a push is needed to ensure national criminal databases have updated information on an individ-

ual’s mental health status that would be flagged in federal background checks before some gun sales. Criminals and mentally ill people should never have access to guns, she said. The state’s next session of the Legislature convenes Jan. 15. Martinez said state officials will have discussions about protecting school children by reviewing safety policies at schools, The governor expressed sympathy for victims of the mass shooting “So many of the innocent victims who lost their lives

were children — an unspeakable horror for parents everywhere who send their kids to school and expect them to come home safely at the end of the day,” the gover nor said. “The children, families, teachers and community members who are impacted by this violence are in all of our thoughts and prayers.” Martinez is a former district attorney and has had a concealed handgun permit. As a prosecutor and gover nor, she often has expressed special concern about violence against children.

Gov. Susana Martinez

ALBUQUERQUE (AP) — A 16year-old girl has pleaded no contest to first-degree murder and other charges in the 2011 killing of her foster mother. The attor ney for Desiree Linares, of Roswell, told the Albuquerque Journal that his client will be sentenced as a juvenile under terms of the plea agreement and will be kept in the custody of the Department of Children, Youth and Families until she’s 21. Linares and another girl were accused in the June 2011 asphyxiation death of Evelyn Miranda, 53, of Hondo Valley. Both girls were 15 at the time. Linares pleaded no contest on Thursday to first-degree murder, kidnapping and other charges. The trial for the other teen

licenses as ID OK School suspends student with ‘hit list’ Driver’s If you’re scrambling to or from federal facilities as A 14-year -old eighthgrade student in Ruidoso has been suspended from Ruidoso Middle School after allegedly threatening to kill other students, according to a press release from the Ruidoso Police Department. Ruidoso Police were notified of the threat by the Ruidoso Municipal Schools interim superintendent on Friday, the same day of the school shootings in Newtown, Conn. Ruidoso Police reported to the school Friday and interviewed several student witnesses about the alleged threats. The witnesses, all eighthgraders, alleged that their classmate had written out a list of students he said he wanted to kill after

returning to class following an outside recess. Some of the witnesses claimed the student said he intended to bring a gun to school the next day and kill the students on the list. When Ruidoso Police interviewed the student who was alleged to have made the threats, the student, in the presence of his parents and a school representative, admitted he had authored a list of names and that he had told his classmates he intended to kill students. The student said he had been angry over being bullied and by being accused of breaking another student’s toy on the playground the day before. The student said

he ripped up the list later that day and that he never intended to kill anybody. The student and his father admitted that there were guns locked in a safe at the family’s home, but said the student had no access to them. The facts of the incident were presented to the 12th Judicial District Attorney’s Office and the FBI for review and determination of any charges, and both organizations agreed that nothing about the incident rose to the level of a delinquent act or a prosecutable criminal offense. No criminal charges were filed regarding the incident and the matter has been referred back to Ruidoso Schools.

New Mexico is currently one of 24 states that are not in compliance with the federal Real ID Act, but according to an email the Daily Record received Tuesday from U.S. Department of Homeland Security spokeswoman Marsha Catron, the Jan. 15 deadline for compliance applies only to the state meeting requirements, not an individual. The deadline has been extended multiple times and could be extended again, but even if it isn’t, it seems that New Mexico residents who use their driver’s licenses as identification next month will not be turned away at the airport

many residents had feared. Starting in December 2014, however, a stateissued driver’s license or ID card cannot be used by a person under the age of 50 to board a commercial airliner or enter a federal building unless the identification complies with Real ID requirements. The deadline for everyone else is December 2017. The Real ID Act mandates that states have certain security features on driver’s licenses and identification cards and says they must be connected to a national database of license information.

NM tops list of best states to be an animal abuser

ALBUQUERQUE (AP) — New Mexico has ear ned another embarrassing ranking. The Animal Legal Defense Fund says the state joins Kentucky, North Dakota, South Dakota and Iowa as one of the five best states to be an animal abuser. The group says it ranks states based on a comprehensive analysis of animal protection laws. Among the problems it cites in New Mexico: no felony provisions for neglect or abandonment, no provi-

sions on sexual assault, no restrictions on future ownership for people previously convicted of animal abuse, no increased penalties when animal abuse is committed in front of children and no provisions for veterinarians to report suspected animal abuse. In addition, the report says humane officers lack broad enforcement authority, and the state has inadequate animal fighting provisions.

State Dems nominate Martinez for speaker

SANTA FE (AP) — Democrats who control the New Mexico House on Friday nominated Majority Leader W. Ken Martinez to replace longtime Speaker Ben Lujan. Democrats also picked Rep. Rick Miera, of Albuquerque, to succeed Martinez in the majority leader post, and they chose Rep. Moe Maestas, of Bernalillo, as majority whip, according to Martinez’s office. The speakership won’t become final until January, when the Legislature convenes and all 70 members — 38 Democrats and 32 Republicans — cast votes on the top leadership posi-

tion. The Democratic nominee will win the job if the party sticks together. However, a coalition of conservative Democrats and Republicans elected a speaker and controlled the House in the late 1970s and early 1980s. The speakership is the most powerful position in the Legislature. The speaker largely controls the legislative agenda in the House and has broad discretionary powers in presiding over daily proceedings. Importantly, the speaker also appoints chairmen and members of committees, which conduct much of the work of the

Legislature by approving and rejecting bills. Lujan, 76, announced at the opening of this year’s regular legislative session that he had been diagnosed with advanced stage lung cancer and would retire. He has served in the House since 1975 and held the speaker’s post since 2001. Martinez, of Grants, has been in the House since 1999. He moved into the Democratic leadership in 2004 when Democrats elected him majority leader. His late father, Walter, served as House speaker in 1971-78 but was ousted by what was called the “Cowboy Coalition” of minority

after it became clear the extent of car nage, the group’s Facebook page disappeared. It posted no tweets. It made no mention of the shooting on its website. None of its leaders hit the media circuit Sunday to promote its support of the Second Amendment right to bear ar ms as the nation mourns the latest shooting victims and opens a new debate over gun restrictions. On Monday, the NRA offered no rebuttal as 300 antigun protesters marched to its Capitol Hill office. Yet on Tuesday, the NRA re-emerged, albeit more slowly than normal and with its somber statement. After previous mass shootings — such as in Oregon and Wisconsin — the group was quick to both send its condolences and defend gun owners’ constitutional rights, popular among millions of Americans. There’s no indication that the National Rifle Association is prepared to weaken its ardent opposition to gun restrictions but it did hint it was open to being part of a dialogue that already has begun. Its deep-pocketed efforts to oppose gun control laws have proven resilient. Firearms are in a third or more of U.S. households and suspicion runs deep of an overbearing government whenever it proposes expanding federal authority. The argument of gun-rights advocates that firearm ownership is a bedrock freedom as well as a necessary

option for self-defense has proved persuasive enough to dampen political enthusiasm for substantial change. Seldom had the NRA gone so long after a fatal shooting without a public presence. It resumed tweeting just one day after a gunman killed two people and then himself at an Oregon shopping mall last Tuesday, and one day after six people were fatally shot at a Sikh temple in Wisconsin in August. The Connecticut shootings occurred three days after the incident in Oregon. Since the Connecticut shootings, the NRA has been taunted and criticized at length, vitriol that may have prompted the shuttering of its Facebook page just a day after the association boasted about reaching 1.7 million supporters on the social media network. Twitter users have been relentless, protesting the organization with hashtags like NoWayNRA. The NRA has not responded to them. Its last tweets, sent Friday, offered a chance to win an auto flashlight. Offline, some 300 protesters gathered outside the NRA’s lobbying headquarters on Capitol Hill on Monday chanting, “Shame on the NRA” and waving signs declaring “Kill the 2nd Amendment, Not Children” and “Protect Children, Not Guns.” “I had to be here,” said Gayle Fleming, 65, a real estate agent from Arlington, Va., saying she was attending her first antigun

Republicans and conservative, mainly rural Democrats. Maestas was nominated to replace Rep. Sheryl Williams Stapleton, of Albuquerque, who has been whip since 2005. She came under fire in 2011 for calling Republican Gov. Susana Martinez a “Mexican” during a heated exchange with a GOP lawmaker in the Capitol. Stapleton later apologized. The whip is responsible for tracking voting strength among Democrats for legislation and fills in when the majority leader is absent.

NRA promises to help prevent school shootings WASHINGTON (AP) — After four days of selfimposed silence on the shooting that killed 26 people inside a Newtown, Conn., elementary school, the nation’s largest gun rights lobby emerged Tuesday and promised “to offer meaningful contributions to help make sure this never happens again.” The National Rifle Association explained its unusual absence “out of respect for the families and as a matter of common decency” after Friday’s shooting that left dead 20 children, all ages 6 or 7. The group — typically outspoken about its positions even after shooting deaths — went all but silent since the rampage. As it faced public scrutiny online and in person, the group left many wondering how — if at all — it would respond to one of the most shocking slayings in the nation’s history. “The National Rifle Association of America is made up of 4 million moms and dads, sons and daughters, and we were shocked, saddened and heartbroken by the news of the horrific and senseless murders in Newtown,” the organization said in a statement. “The NRA is prepared to offer meaningful contributions to help make sure this never happens again.” The group said it would have a news conference to answer questions Friday, the one-week anniversary of the shootings.

rally. “These were 20 babies. I will be at every rally, will sign every letter, call every congressman going forward.” Retired attorney Kathleen Buf fon of Chevy Chase, Md., reflected on earlier mass shootings, saying: “All of the other ones, they’ve been terrible. This is the last straw. These were children.” “The NRA has had a stranglehold on Congress,” she added as she marched toward the NRA’s unmarked office. “It’s time to call them out.” The group’s reach on Capitol Hill is wide as it wields its deep pockets to defeat lawmakers, many of them Democrats, who push for restrictions on gun ownership. The NRA outspent its chief opponent by a 73-1 margin to lobby the outgoing Congress, according to the nonpartisan Sunlight Foundation, which tracks such spending. It spent more than 4,000 times its biggest opponents during the 2012 election. In all, the group spent at least $24 million this election cycle — $16.8 million through its political action committee and nearly $7.5 million through its affiliated Institute for Legislative Action. Its chief foil, the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, spent just $5,816. On direct lobbying, the NRA also was mismatched. Through July 1, the NRA spent $4.4 million to lobby Congress to the Brady Campaign’s $60,000.

The victim’s sister -inlaw, Ima Jean Miranda, said she was stunned by the prospect of Linares receiving a juvenile sentence. “Both girls were involved in this, and yet one girl will walk away in six years when she turns 21,” she said. “How can you take a life and in six years be free to do anything you want, just because you’ll testify against the other?” Linares’ attorney, Jesse Cosby, said his client must testify as a key witness in the trial against Shields under ter ms of the plea agreement. Cosby said the plea agreement could still be withdrawn by his client if the judge does not agree to sentence Linares as a juvenile.

Cliff talks hit a lull with Boehner’s ‘Plan B’

WASHINGTON (AP) — Just two weeks from an economy-threatening deadline, fiscal cliff talks hit a lull Tuesday as House Speaker John Boehner announced that Republicans would also march ahead with their own tax plan on a separate track from the one he’s been pursuing with President Barack Obama. The White House and congressional leading Democrats immediately rejected Boehner’s “Plan B,” which would extend soonto-expire Bush-era tax cuts for everyone making less than $1 million but would not address huge acrossthe-board spending cuts that are set to strike the Pentagon and domestic programs next year. “Instead of making tough choices today House Republicans are threatening to abandon serious negotiations,” said Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev. Reid added: “Everyone should understand Boehner’s proposal will not pass the Senate.” Boehner’s surprise move came after significant progress over the past several days in talks with Obama — talks that produced movement on tax rate hikes that have proven deeply unsettling to GOP conservatives and on cuts to Social Security benefits that have incensed liberal Democrats. Just Monday, Obama offered concessions, including a plan to raise top tax rates on households earning more than $400,000 instead of the $250,000 threshold he had campaigned on. And the two sides had inched closer on the total amount of tax revenue required to seal the agreement. Obama now would settle for $1.2 trillion over the coming decade while Boehner is offering $1 trillion. By contrast, protecting income below $1 million from a hike in the top tax rate from 35 percent to 39.6 percent would raise only $269 billion over the coming decade. But the outlines of a possible Obama-Boehner agreement appeared to have shaky support at best from Boehner’s leadership team and outright opposition from key Republicans like vice presidential nomi-

nee Paul R yan, R-Wis., a House GOP aide said. That aide spoke only on condition of anonymity because the aide was not authorized to discuss the situation publicly. Though Obama spokesman Jay Carney had nothing good to say about Boehner’s new option, he said, “The president is willing to continue to work with Republicans” toward a broader agreement. The narrower Plan B faced plenty of opposition. Democrats announced they would oppose it, and many conservative Republicans continued to resist any vote that might be interpreted as raising taxes. Republicans were refining the measure Tuesday in hopes of building support among the GOP rank and file, but passing the measure exclusively with GOP votes could prove difficult. “I think it’s a terrible idea,” said Rep. Raul Labrador, R-Idaho. “For a lot of reasons.” Democrats said Boehner’s move made it clear he was abandoning efforts to reach an agreement with Obama — much as he quit talks with Obama 18 months ago. “Plan B is yet another example of House Republicans walking away from negotiations,” said Rep. Chris Van Hollen, D-Md., top Democrat on the Budget Committee. Boehner, however, said Obama is the one proving to be too inflexible, even as he held out hope that talks with Obama might yet bear fruit. “He talked about a ‘balanced’ approach on the campaign trail,” Boehner said. “What the White House offered yesterday — $1.3 trillion in revenue for only $850 billion in spending cuts — cannot be considered balanced.” Just Monday, the Capitol bristled with optimism that

Boehner and Obama might strike a bargain. In a new of fer, Obama dropped his long-held insistence that taxes rise on individuals ear ning more than $200,000 and families making more than $250,000. He is now offering a new threshold of $400,000 and lowering his 10-year tax revenue goals from the $1.6 trillion he originally sought. The new Obama plan seeks $1.2 trillion in revenue over 10 years and $1.2 trillion in 10-year spending reductions. Boehner aides say the revenue is closer to $1.3 trillion if revenue triggered by a new inflation index is counted, and they say the spending reductions are closer to $930 billion if one discounts about $290 billion in lower estimated debt interest. The two sides also differ on the estate tax, extending unemployment benefits and how to address the need to raise the government’s borrowing cap to prevent a first-ever U.S. default and a re-run of last year’s debt crisis.

The White House was facing its own backlash, with labor, liberal and elderly advocacy groups mounting an organized campaign against any adjustments in cost-of-living for Social Security beneficiaries.

“President Obama and other Democrats campaigned saying Social Security doesn’t af fect the deficit,” said Roger Hickey, co-director of the liberal Campaign for America’s Future. “Social Security recipients are going to notice and they are either going to blame John Boehner or President Obama.”

The change would reduce annual cost-of-living increases for beneficiaries of Social Security and other government programs. It also would push more people into higher tax brackets by making smaller annual adjustments to brackets. The administration appeared confident that most Democrats would reluctantly vote for the idea in an attractive enough budget package.

SANTA FE — Is Virgin Galactic preparing to rip off New Mexico? Maybe so but my view of how the spaceport came about argues for Richard Branson not being the heavy in all of this. As I remember it, 20 years ago the city of Las Cruces, the Chamber of Commerce and New Mexico State University began a joint effort to build a spaceport somewhere in Dona Ana County. I went down to Cruces for some conferences attended by business people, scientists and politicians. They got a bill introduced into the Legislature to fund a modest spaceport near White Sands Missile Range, which promised to provide what assistance it could. Small aerospace companies testified to legislative committees that they were ready to start testing and if we would build it, they would come. Evidently the companies also testified in other states because soon there was a committee of the National Lieutenant Governors’ Association devoted to

gin Galactic’s Sir Richard Branson. An elegant, futuristic terminal building would perfectly suit his identity. The situation at this point becomes cloudy. Richardson and Branson huddled behind closed doors. Both were excited about the possibilities. From all indications, there was an atmosphere of trust as they imagined what could be. The two were both hustlers. They talked each other’s language. The timetable for completing the spaceport and Branson’s spacecraft were unrealistically compressed. Initially Gov. Richardson still would have been in office when the first flights took place. There appear to be no good records of what commitments were made. It was at about that time that Branson signed a deal with Scaled Composits, which had just won the Ansari X-Prize for flying to the edge of space twice in three days. Did Branson promise Richardson that if he built a spaceport,

spaceports. Lt. Gov. Casey Luna was New Mexico’s representative. In 1995, Gary Johnson became New Mexico’s governor. He wasn’t interested in rockets. He wanted to widen roads in Republican areas of the state that he felt had been ignored under Democratic administrations. Eight years later, Gov. Bill Richardson was elected and the spaceport talk picked up again. Other states hadn’t gotten hopelessly ahead of us because they were still talking about remodeling old airports. Gov. Richardson envisioned a purpose-built spaceport for New Mexico. The idea appealed to Vir-

Roswell Daily Record

Virgin would be the anchor tenant? The evidence suggests that is what happened since Virgin participated heavily in design of the terminal building. It also organized dedication of the runway and the terminal. Scaled composits was to make Virgin a five-seat plane, which would take paying passengers on the same trip. An accident involving three deaths early in the development phase slowed the pace for Virgin. And numerous delays slowed the spaceport construction. As a result Gov. Susan Martinez is two years into her term and neither the spaceport nor spacecraft are completed. To complicate matters Gov. Martinez has never been on the same page as Sir Richard regarding the spaceport. It would be difficult for two people to have more different personalities. Martinez was unsure about the spaceport from the beginning. Branson seemed to take over as chief spokesman and promoter for the spaceport.

This column has warned for the past two years that many other countries and states are back in the game ever since Richardson left office. New space companies start testing every month and none of them are coming here. Branson is not pleased. The emirate of Abu Dhabi not only is building a spaceport, it has bought a big chunk of Virgin Galactic. Branson already has said that will be his headquarters for the Eastern Hemisphere. Virgin Galactic also is upset that the Legislature has not limited liability for spacecraft parts suppliers. Gov. Martinez says if the Legislature passes it, she will sign it. But she needs to hustle that through the Legislature rather than spending so much time and political capital on immigrants’ driver’s licenses.

Keep an eye on drones

Until recently, concerns over the government’s use of unmanned aerial vehicles — commonly known as drones — were relegated to their military applications overseas, such as targeting suspected terrorist leaders for assassination. However, drones are now becoming tools of domestic law enforcement, which raises legitimate questions about how the new technology fits in with Americans’ constitutional rights regarding privacy. It’s therefore good to see bills such as SB 92, which would allow the use of drones if there is “a high risk of a terrorist attack by a specific individual or organization” as identified by the U.S. secretary of Homeland Security, but otherwise would prevent police from using the vehicles to take pictures that would be used as evidence in a criminal case. The Federal Aviation Administration this year has authorized more than 100 federal, state and local government entities to fly drones within U.S. airspace. Local law enforcement has yet to deploy the vehicles, although it’s probably just a matter of time. Homeland Security grants are making them popular acquisitions across the nation. Like most technology, drones are not inherently evil. However, they do present opportunity for abuse if not used properly. It’s like the difference between video cameras installed at intersections to monitor and control traffic flow versus red-light cameras that are used to enforce laws — and which have been shown to be manipulated for governments’ financial gain. Drones could therefore substitute for manned helicopters that are used to generally monitor crowds during spring break, to conduct manhunts in rough terrain or to survey hostage situations without violating the 14th Amendment’s restrictions on government searches and seizures. It’s when the vehicles are equipped with infrared sensors or face-recognition technology that they become potentially dangerous to civil liberties. That can create a “surveillance society” where our every move in public is tracked, recorded and stored. Everyone becomes a suspect under scrutiny. Federal courts have been attempting to catch up with the digital age, such as restricting how law enforcement can use GPS tracking devices and prohibiting police from peering through walls in private dwellings. The advent of domestic drones requires similar guidelines and safeguards. Drones that track or record individuals should be deployed by law enforcement only with a warrant or in an emergency where there is reasonable and specific suspicion of criminal wrongdoing. That means no random flying over houses or businesses taking pictures. Drones should not be equipped with lethal or “non-lethal” weapons (such as rubber bullets). Law enforcement agencies should make public specific, written policies on drone usage. As technology evolves and becomes democratized — unmanned vehicles will soon be used by commercial and private entities — those lines will continue to move. Guest Editorial The Panama City News Herald DEAR DOCTOR K: For years my doctor has been telling me about the benefits of high levels of HDL cholesterol. Now I read that high HDL may not protect against heart disease after all. Is “good” cholesterol still good for you? DEAR READER: The HDL cholesterol story is a cautionary tale. It demonstrates once again that even the most persuasive theories about what should make us healthy need to be put to the test. It has been solidly established that people who have high levels of LDL (bad) cholesterol have a higher risk of developing heart disease. Moreover, it has been solidly established that treatments that lower LDL cholesterol reduce the risk of developing heart disease. It also has been solidly established that people with HDL levels above 60 milligrams per deciliter

How do we fight against evil? Trying to explain an evil act like the one that killed 20 children and six adults at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., is on a par with explaining how the universe was formed. The natural human reaction after extending sympathy and prayers for the victims and their families is to ask what actions might have been taken to prevent the massacre. More gun laws? Connecticut already has some of the strictest gun laws in the nation. Those laws did not prevent a man with evil intent from carrying out his heinous act. Some will blame TV and video game violence. Depictions of



(mg/dL) tend to have a lower risk for heart disease. Since HDL cholesterol removes fat from the plaques in arteries, that observation made sense. Not unreasonably, doctors and scientists assumed that boosting HDL with medication would lower cardiac risk even more. There are several drugs that have been around for 30 years — particularly gemfibrozil and niacin — that modestly



murder and other violent acts on TV and in the movies have grown in recent years, but people killed people long before TV and movies. Such explanations are too easy. Would armed guards at Sandy Hook have helped? Possibly, but do we want guards at every elementary school,

raise levels of HDL. These drugs were tested in people with heart disease. They did lower the risk of new heart problems, but it wasn’t clear if they achieved that benefit by lowering HDL cholesterol or through some other effect. Then several different types of drugs were developed that could dramatically raise HDL levels. Most doctors, myself included, bet that such drugs would probably reduce the risk of heart disease. Why? Because all the evidence seemed to point in that direction. Before such drugs were approved by the Food and Drug Administration, however, the agency required that studies involving large numbers of people be conducted to prove the value of the drugs. To make a long and painful story short, over the past five years these drugs have proved very disappointing. Not only

patrolling not only the halls, but playgrounds where kids ought to be able to play in an atmosphere of fun and freedom? That may be where we are headed. What about locked doors? Sandy Hook’s doors were reportedly secured, but the shooter still managed to somehow gain access. As much as humans have tried for millennia to prevent evil acts, we have not succeeded. In the modern era, Woodrow Wilson believed his League of Nations would usher in peace on Earth, if not goodwill to men. The United Nations followed that aborted experiment. The U.N. has been equally unsuccessful in preventing the

have they not convincingly lowered the risk of heart trouble — in some cases, they have increased the risk. In addition, a recent Harvard study pooled health information on more than 116,000 people genetically predisposed to produce higherthan-normal amounts of HDL. Surprisingly, this group did not show the predicted lower risk of heart attack. How can this study be squared with previous studies that have convincingly showed that people with high levels of HDL have a lower risk of heart disease? The most likely conclusion is that it is not the high HDL levels, but rather something else about people who have high HDL levels that protects them from heart disease. Many lifestyle changes raise HDL See DR. K, Page A5

slaughter of innocents and other evil acts. Political leaders not usually identified with spiritual concepts are making use of the word “evil’ in accurately describing what happened in Newtown. We hear calls for prayers from politicians committed to the separation of church and state. Whether it is Columbine, Virginia Tech, Tucson, Aurora, Fort Hood, Oklahoma City or the 9/11 terrorist attacks, evil seems to have gained a foothold in America. Not every parent with a child in public school has the option of home-schooling, but that is

Another plea for help for veterans in need of care Roswell Daily Record

This is yet another column giving examples of the lack of reasonable access to medical care our area veterans are encountering with increasing frequency. To some, this may seem an unnecessary redundancy, but it is an honest attempt to gain the attention and effective action from one of our government representatives who has the task of helping their constituency. Thus far, the Albuquerque VA decisionmakers have been ineffective in promising resolution to our problems, only to effectively delay and deny action on remedies. As many of you are already aware, our two senators and our district representative have all been virtually ignored by the VA. The two senators have been rejected multiple times when requesting establishment of contract medical services in our area. Our district congressman has been acting in good faith and has attempted several times to gain resolution, only to be delayed and then denied resolution problems. Only by continually showing actual cases

something they might want to consider if they want to create a completely safe environment. Even private schools can’t offer full protection from a deranged mind hell-bent on carnage. More information about the killer will surface in the days to come, but even if we learn he was psychotic and off his medication, that will not satisfy our communal anger or anguish. It will not explain evil. It will not explain why 26 innocent lives were lost. The way to deal with evil is to first acknowledge that it exists and that we all possess the potential for it. We don’t become evil by what we do, but because of who we are. We are human beings, not God. We are not “basically good,” as some claim, we are imperfect and fall far short of any true standard of perfection. Evil is a “pre-existing condition.” In some it is controlled by an inner compass, or by laws and

can we ever hope to gain reasonable access to medical care mandated by Congress for rural areas. So far, no one has been able to “persuade or require” Albuquerque VA to do the right thing. The first example is quite stunning. A local veteran (with VA diagnosed PTSD) had a significant breakdown just recently. By significant, I mean, pronounced irrational behavior, pronounced belligerence toward family and friends, periods of total withdrawal (locking self in room or in car), numerous periods where family felt he might harm himself or others and so on. The family contacted the closest VA mental health “counselor” frantically asking for immediate help. The response? Family was told Albuquerque VA wasn’t really accepting new cases right now, but an appointment in Artesia could be made (for the veteran in distress) to be seen in 10 days. 10 days! When no immediate help was offered, a friend of the family called the national VA crisis hotline, who

cultural constraints. When it is not, we get Sandy Hook and tragedies like it. We get what we do not understand and cannot begin to fathom. There may be no greater expression of evil than the murder of children in their classrooms. In calling for prayers, officials have taken an important first step in combating evil, but a larger question should be asked. Perhaps theologians, pastors, priests and rabbis are the ones to ask it, but permit me a suggestion. If there is a source of evil, is there also a source of good? And if there is, has that source for good been offended by all of the accumulated evil we are piling up, affording it an upper hand? As a friend of mine says, “Not a sermon, just a thought.” (Write to Cal Thomas at: Tribune Media Services, 2225 Kenmore Ave., Suite 114, Buffalo, N.Y. 14207.

were very concerned about the situation. Their first suggestion was to contact the nearest VA vet center for crisis intervention. When the counselor looked up the closest center, they responded with, “Wow! You are 200 miles from all Vet Centers in your area!” Then they suggested going to the emergency room here in town to get immediate help. When asked by the caller if the VA would pay for the ER services and psychiatric intervention, the response was “we can’t guarantee the VA will pay for services, but maybe if you call the Vet Center in El Paso, you would stand a better

chance of the VA paying if the option was recommended by the Vet Center counselor.” Case number two. One of our brothers in Tatum has cancer and needs chemotherapy frequently. Albuquerque VA requires him to drive to Albuquerque for those treatments—no alternatives. Anyone who has dealt with chemotherapy knows the horrible sickness and pain encountered just getting home from local therapy. Imagine a four-hour drive (one way from Albuquerque to Tatum). Apparently, no local contracts exist with the Albuquerque VA. The final case for today involves a veteran whose lungs were rapidly filling with fluid, literally drowning him. Since the VA clinic in Artesia does not have emergency or urgent care services (VA Albuquerque decision), the VA contact suggested he go to Albuquerque. But, since this was an obvious critical situation, the alternative suggestion was to go to the ER locally. VA pay not guaranteed.

I keep harping on these events because each and every week, I’m getting an increasing number of medical events reported to me by desperate veterans and family members. Many veterans are choosing not to go to the emergency rooms for obvious reasons. It is sad when you think that an illegal alien can go to an emergency room, receive necessary medical care, and not have to worry about payment. A veteran, on the other hand, will have to pay for medical care if the VA denies reimbursement.

As you may expect, I will continue to have more follow-ups to these gut-wrenching situations. Rosa Parks, Martin Luther King, Cesar Chavez, Jesse Jackson or Michael Moore would do no less. We desperately need help from someone who has the power and the tenacity to refuse to be put off or delayed by people who know how to” play” that game extremely well! God bless.

Miller Ray Van Eaton

Miller Ray Van Eaton was born on Nov. 23, 1923, on his home ranch at Olive, the sixth of nine children born to John Frederick and Hazel Trella Van Eaton. He went home to be with the Lord on Dec. 14, 2012. He grew up on the ranch in the midst of the Great Depression, helping with all the ranching duties. He was an excellent marksman and horseman, and could ride a horse bareback at a full gallop. He attended country schools through the eighth grade, and then moved to Roswell, where he attended Roswell High School. He lived with his older sister Hazel and younger brother Tom while attending high school. The day after high school graduation, he was sworn into the Army Air Corps at Fort Bliss in El Paso. He was a proud World War II veteran, serving with the 5th Air Force, 312th Bomb Group, flying combat missions as a gunner on an A20 aircraft. He was present at the liberation of the Philippines and at the Battles of Leyte and Luzon Gulf. He attained the rank of staff sergeant and his awards included American Theater Award, AsiaticPacific Award, Good Conduct Medal, Philippine Liberation Medal, Air Medal, Distinguished Unit Badge and Victory Medal. After World War II, he attended Texas Tech on the GI Bill and got a degree in petroleum geology. There

he met and later married Mary Louise Purgason. They were married just short of 50 years before Mary’s sudden death on Jan. 1, 2000. After a brief stint on a seismograph crew, he retur ned to Roswell and worked at the Post Office until he retired. Together, he and Mary had six children, which kept him very busy being a baseball coach, taking his kids and their friends to the park, watching dance, piano, chorus and orchestra recitals, attending DeMolay and Rainbow Girl initiations and attending track, cross country and football games. Some of his best memories were spent with his family camping and fishing. He also liked to garden and watch the Dallas Cowboys play football. He was preceded in death by his wife; one son James Frederick “Fred” Van Eaton; his parents; his eight siblings, Oliver Van Eaton, William “Bill” Van Eaton, Annette Traweek, John Frederick “Fred” Van Eaton, Hazel Van Eaton, Ira “Tom” Van Eaton, Louise Van Eaton and Gertrude Van Eaton.

Xavyr had many, many, many loving primos and primas and he loved you all. If I did not mention your name, it’s just because there are just too many to name and not enough paper to list. Xavyr’s love was genuine to all. Xavyr Jo-Ray Herrera Air man 1st class - E1 rank Active soldier, he is now a soldier for my Christ Jesus. Xavyr’s death is no more than a true example of the evil that is upon this

Earth. He was truly one of a kind. He loved playing cards, even though he did not play with a full deck. He was a character within a character. He always knew how to make you laugh in his crazy little ways. We will never forget his big beautiful smile, adorable eyes and his “Herrera” chin. Xavyr was an atlas of knowledge. From a very young age he was always eager to lear n. He loved making new inventions, many ideas for any and everything. He was a gogetter, an entrepreneur, he was to his brothers and his mamma their best friend. He was our shadow, our teacher, our example. To mom he was her “LIL MAN.” To us, he was everything. Xavyr didn’t care who you were or where he was, because I assure you he was going to make an impression on you. If you were standing in a store and he was next to you, he was either going to convince you to purchase something off the shelf, or he would tell you, “Hey ... did you know ...” and then he would explain how it was made, what it was used for, or what you could do with it, and if that did not work, he would ask you to get it for him. He was EVERYTHING, a mother, a father, a son, a wife, a brother, an aunt, an uncle, a cousin, a friend you could ask for and be proud of. Xavyr was and as he would put it, “I’m your favorite disease.” He was a true social butterfly. To his Rent-a-Dad, they always snuck a hug from each other somehow or another. He would wake up and say, “Hey, Rent-a-Dad, where’s my hug?” and Garry called him his Rent-a-Son, and got his hug. His dreams were exactly what they were beginning to be. He loved being in the shop with Bobby and Garry. Because of his artistic ways, huge active imagination and his eagerness to learn, he wanted to create and design something new every day. His dream cars were Corvettes and 350Z. He loved his ’67 Chevy shortbed. He constantly talked about how he was going to


have her done. He loved bikes of all sorts, from cars, to music new and old. As his sister Kristen says, “He loved to sing, even though he can’t.” He was a huge true Cowboy fan. He was also a big Bob Marley fan all the way around, to the point he would fight with Mom about getting dredlocks. To his Tio Boo Boo, he was everything an uncle could ask for. He was loved more than anything by us, other than the love we have for God. He was our family’s GOLDEN CHILD. He was our father’s clone, and now his lil messenger. If I had to put one phrase to explain him, it would be hakuna matata. It means not worry in the world, that’s how he lived in our eyes. He was the son his T io Boo Boo never ever had. I will always love you, Chango. To his brother Santiago, he was his best friend, and when he had no friends, Xavyr was all he needed. He was the closest thing to a dad when he was stepping out of line. NO matter who he’s with, Dogs always said he was always his father figure. To his twins, he loved them so much he always wanted to adopt them. His plans were as his Papo’s plans were, to send his children to school. He always said how he wished he were athletic like the twins, and wanted to watch them on TV one day as they made a touchdown, or solid tackle, and look in the screen and say, “That’s for you, Brother.” {Linda’s letter} Isaiah 41:10: Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you with my righteous right hand. GOD CALLED OUR HANDSOME MAN XAVYR BACK HOME AND ALTHOUGH HIS 19 SHORT YEARS OF LIFE ON EARTH SEEM MINISCULE, HE WILL NOW BE WITH OUR LORD FOR ETERNITY ... A MAGNIFICENT GIFT NO ONE WILL EVER TAKE AWAY FROM HIM. XAVYR WAS NOT ALONE, FOR GOD SAID, “LO I AM WITH YOU ALWAYS, EVEN UNTO THE END OF THE WORLD.” MATTHEW 28:20 WE MAY NEVER TRULY UNDERSTAND HOW OR


Roswell Daily Record My Lil Man, I never got a chance to say goodbye, but then again we made the pact to never say goodbye but see ya later, love you. Losing you has been the biggest test of true faith for me. You have always made me a very proud mother. You have always, even now, at the most agonizing time of my life in losing you, you still make me so, so proud. You just barely came home from training and only had a very few short days to share with you has now given me only a very small amount of peace for the time you were gone from me. With all the evil and envy, trials and tribulations that were thrown at us, we always found our way back together. Back to our lil circle of 5. Mejo, your death was not in vain. Because this tragic loss has brought sisters together again, an enemy to ask for forgiveness, brothers to see reality, a father to see his sons truly need him, a mother to see she was wrong and to trust her son to where they need each other then, mejo, to us you were our savior here on Earth. You were always considered the Golden Child to our family, but back then we could have never known that your purpose driven was exactly what my father has always taught us. I know my Daddy needed you again. In this and all the little signs that have been given to me, I know without a shadow of a doubt that he has swept you into his arms and is standing right behind you and you in front as you always were here on Earth. As our song says, “Someone whispers in my ear and says, ‘You are not alone, I am here with you though we’re far apart you’re always in my heart.’” Every time you sang that song to me, I always hurt for our times apart or disagreements we had, but somehow or another, we always found a way back to each other. No one will ever break that bond. Now that I hear this song, it merely reminds me that you are

still here. Your Papo died on the 13th, as well as you have. Papo’s birthday is the 21st; you’re being laid to rest on the 21st. You did exactly as he did for us. You proved yourself a man. You are even an Airman as he was and now a provider for your son. Your life, Your legacy as you were mine, watching over me. El Rey de los Reyes. My Lord Savior, Daddy and you. I laugh now how we used to argue who loved Papo more, or who was his favorite. Now I know it was the both of you who loved me. You are my lil man. You are my best friend, You are my strength. Mejito, I can only feel sorry for the persons who did this to you and only pray that they have a mother who loves them if only half as much as I have ever loved you. I pray, mejo, that God guides these detectives and gives them wisdom and strength and those, the courage to speak the truth so that you may have peace and justice here on Earth. You are in the arms of the angels, a soldier for Christ, a defeater. We will be together again someday and I ask God to give me strength for your brothers to teach them that what is bound here on Earth will be bound in heaven. They may have taken your precious life from here but Our circle will not be broken. This has changed my life forever, as with many who loved you. I will never say goodbye to you, my lil man, but see ya again. I love you, Son, Mommy Xavyr Died a Man. A real Man. He will be greatly missed, forever loved, and always in our hearts.

A memorial service will be held for Linda Thomas, 66, of Artesia, at 2 p.m.,


Education funding SANTA FE (AP) — New Mexico Secretary of Education-designate Hanna Skandera is urging lawmakers to support a funding increase of about $140 million for public schools in fiscal year 2014. The Santa Fe New Mexican reports that the Public Education Department’s request includes $20 million to purchase about 250 new school buses. proposes Skandera investing $13.5 million in new money in early-childhood reading initiatives, such as hiring regional reading coaches. Another $11 million would be directed to prekindergarten programs. Skandera says the Public Education Department needs extra money to help improve the state’s graduation rate, raise academic achievement, and reward the state’s most effective teachers and school leaders. Guadalupe fire danger CARLSBAD (AP) — Forest officials say they have elevated the fire danger warning in southern New Mexico’s Guadalupe Ranger District. Their decision was prompted by a lack of moisture and unseasonably warm weather. When the rating reaches the high level, officials say all fine fuels such as grass can ignite easily and fires can start quickly and spread rapidly. The last two years saw similar conditions, and that led to the start of early fire seasons. In 2011, large fires were being reported as early as February and the season continued through August. The ranger district’s fire management officer, Art Arias, says this year could see an extended fire season due to the similar conditions. He says there’s no indication that the area will see significant moisture between now and spring. NMSU obesity study LAS CRUCES (AP) — New Mexico State University researchers have launched a study to examine obesity among NMSU students and employees. Researchers recently developed an online survey aimed at finding out more on obesity and lifestyle factors of students and employees, especially in southern New Mexico So far, the survey has found that 47 percent of NMSU and employee respondents self-reported as overweight or obese. Susan Wilson, an associate professor in NMSU’s Department of Health Science and the study’s lead researcher, says she would like to see future studies that look more closely at stressors in the environment and “culturally

acceptable versus ideal notions of weight and obesity.” Albuquerque marketing ALBUQUERQUE (AP) — Albuquerque is setting aside $5.5 million to market itself. The Albuquerque Journal reports that City Council approved a proposal Monday to set up a new account that will provide money for marketing the city, keeping the businesses already here, supporting workforce training and chipping in to close a deal. The money to establish the account comes from

penalties paid by companies that received city incentives but didn’t live up to their end of the contract.

The proposal sets up an economic development council that will recommend ways to spend the money. The council will include the mayor or the mayor’s designee, two city councilors and two members of the public appointed by the mayor.

The city’s Economic Development Department will approve spending from the account.

The Stars Show the Kind of Day You’ll Have: 5-Dynamic; 4Positive; 3-Average; 2-So-so; 1Difficult

ARIES (March 21-April 19) ### You might react in a resistant manner to someone’s proposal. Whether it is good or bad, think about the consequences that your reactions might bring. Take a stand, but explain your reasoning behind it. Pressure could build as a result. Tonight: Off to the gym. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) #### Act quickly, or you could miss out on an important opportunity. A conversation with an adviser points to making a more solid decision about present facts. You might have strong feelings for a new friend. If you are not ready to share, don’t. Tonight: Take some personal time. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) ##### Zero in on a goal. The unexpected surrounds a revelation, which allows you to move forward. A partner or loved one supports and even pushes you toward the finish line. Tension builds until you opt to jump right in and go for it. Tonight: Only where your friends are. CANCER (June 21-July 22)

##### Others look up to you. A surprising event occurs, which will force you to regroup. Understanding evolves after a conversation. You might not like how assertive a friend or loved one is, but at least this person gets the action moving. Tonight: To the wee hours. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) #### Work with a partner directly. Unusual information could toss your thinking into “revamp” mode. Verify that what you are hearing is legitimate and factual. Appreciate someone’s efforts, and say “thank you” in a way that he or she can hear. Tonight: Only where there is music. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) # # # # Others dominate the scene and want control. That’s OK — you have other fish to fry. While others express their power, you might have some extra time off to go holiday shopping. A loved one lets you know that he or she expects more time with you. Tonight: Remain sensitive to a friend. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) # # # # Easy works, but not everyone is in agreement with you. A family member knows

how to push you hard. Your options are: fight, go along with his or her demands, or flee the scene. It is your decision. Honor your needs, even if one of them is to buy this person a muzzle! Tonight: Get some extra R and R. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) #### You might want to move past a problem involving someone talking too much. You already have tried to isolate yourself by screening calls. How creative can you be in telling someone you don’t want to hear any more, and not damage your bond? Tonight: Silence is nice.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) #### You might be coming off stronger than you realize. If someone backs away, he or she probably has good reason. A little softness goes a long way. Go for a walk. Reduce high energy to a level that’s easier to man-

NEW YORK (AP) — A nine-game winning streak has Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos on top of the AP Pro32 NFL power rankings for the first time. The latest win came on the road, 34-17 at Baltimore, and was impressive enough to lift the Broncos to No. 1 by three points over the San Francisco 49ers. AFC West champion Denver (11-3) and playoffbound San Francisco each received six first-place votes Tuesday in balloting by The Associated Press’ panel of 12 media members who regularly cover the league. The Broncos outpointed the 49ers for first, 375-372, in the closest voting of the season. Half the voters preferred the 49ers, who stormed to a 28-point lead over the Patriots on the road, then hung on for a 41-34 win to clinch a playoff berth. The 49ers can win the NFC West with a victory at Seattle on Sunday. New England dropped from the top spot to third, followed by Atlanta and Houston. The Falcons and Texans bounced back with big wins after losses the previous week. Atlanta and Houston have the best records in the league at 12-2, but voters questioned whether the teams are really that good. Both did some convincing Sunday when the Falcons shut out the Super Bowl champion New York Giants 34-0 and the Texans dominated the Indianapolis Colts 29-17. Green Bay remained sixth after clinching the NFC North with a win over the rival Chicago Bears. The Seahawks, after a second straight 50-point game, moved up a spot to seventh as they prepare to take on the 49ers knowing a win could give them a shot at the NFC West title. Washington moved up three spots to No. 8 after a win at Cleveland with backup rookie Kirk Cousins leading the way in place of the injured Robert Griffin III. The Redskins, Cowboys and Giants are tied for the NFC East lead. The Giants and Ravens were tied for ninth heading into their game Sunday. Pittsburgh fell two places to 15th after a second straight loss, this one in overtime at Dallas.


Player of the Year Roswell Daily Record



Heisman winner picks up more hardware

Johnny Manziel ran for almost 1,700 yards and 30 touchdowns as a dualthreat quarterback his senior year of high school at Kerrville Tivy. Who would have thought he’d be even more impressive at Texas A&M when pitted against the defenses of the Southeastern Conference? On Tuesday, Manziel picked up another major award for his spectacular debut season. He was voted The Associated Press Player of the Year. As with the Heisman Trophy and Davey O’Brien Award that Manziel already won, the QB nicknamed Johnny Football is the first freshman to collect the AP award. Manziel’s 31 votes were more than twice that of second-place finisher Manti Te’o, Notre Dame’s starting linebacker. He is the third straight Heisman-winning quarterback to receive the honor, following Robert Griffin III and Cam Newton. Manziel erased initial doubts about his ability when he ran for 60 yards and a score in his first game against Florida. “I knew I could run the ball, I did it a lot in high school,” Manziel said in an interview with the AP. “It is just something that you don’t get a chance to see in the spring. Quarterbacks aren’t live in the spring. You don’t get to tackle. You don’t get to evade some of the sacks that you would in normal game situations. So I feel like when I was able to avoid getting tackled, it opened some people’s eyes a little bit more.” The 6-foot-1 Manziel threw for 3,419 yards and 24 touchdowns and

R yan Tannehill, Manziel’s predecessor now with the Dolphins after being drafted eighth overall this season, saw promise from the young quarterback last year when he was redshirted. But even he is surprised at how quickly things came together for Manziel. “It’s pretty wild. I always thought he had that playmaking ability, that something special where if somebody came free, he can make something exciting happen,” Tannehill said. “I wasn’t really sure if, I don’t think anyone was sure if he was going to be able to carry that throughout an SEC season, and he’s

Robert Arreola out as Roswell coach? PREP FOOTBALL

Rockets win big on road Local Briefs

LOVINGTON — Goddard used a big third quarter to pull away and cruised to a 63-40 win over Lovington on the road, Tuesday. The Rockets led 26-20 at the break, but outscored the Wildcats 21-6 in the third quarter to pull away for the win. “We came out with a lot of intensity and energy, that was the difference,” said Rocket coach Kevin Jones. “We played very aggressive the whole game.” David Sweet led the Rockets (5-4) with 22 points. Fort Sumner 58, Hagerman 54 FORT SUMNER — The Bobcats struggled from the field, making just 35.3 percent of their 68 shots, and lost to the host Foxes, Tuesday.

By most standards, Robert Arreola has had a fairly successful tenure as the head coach of the Roswell football team. But maybe not successful enough to keep his job. After three playoff appearances in five seasons, Arreola is apparently on the chopping block. He was asked to resign last week, but declined, saying that he “wasn’t going to quit.” Roswell athletic director Brian Shea refused to speak on the record about the issue, stating only that “it is a personnel issue and I’m not allowed to talk about it.” Shea also had no comment when asked to confirm that Arreola was asked to resign. Arreola’s Coyotes made the playoffs each of the past three seasons and posted a 17-17 mark dur-

NFC East still up for grabs

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — There’s two weeks left in the NFL season and the NFC East is up for grabs among three teams. Sound familiar? It was the same situation last year with the New York Giants, Dallas and Philadelphia fighting it out. Now, RGIII and the Washington Redskins are in the mix while the Eagles try to play spoiler. That scenario worked out nicely for the Giants in 2011. They won two straight door-die regular-season games, three more in the conference playoffs and then beat New England for the second time in five years in the Super Bowl. Can they do it again? “These are the circumstances you want to be in,” two-time Super Bowl MVP Eli Manning said. “You want to be fighting to make it in the playoffs and that’s just football and you understand it’s tough to make the playoffs. You’ve got to work. You’ve got to win games. You’ve got to win important games and this is a chance.” The Giants, Redskins and Cowboys each are 8-6 and control their playoff fate. Win and they’re in — either as the division champion or a wild card. The Redskins clinch the East if they win out because they hold tiebreaker advantages. “Every game we go into now we believe See NFC EAST, Page B6

ing that stretch. His 2011 team posted the first winning record for the program since 2000 and the first playoff victory since 2006. “It has been three years in a row that Roswell High has made the playof fs and it had been awhile since that happened,” Arreola said. “I’m not going to take any credit for it. It’s the hard work that these kids have put into it. “This has never been about me or anyone else. This has been about the program and especially the kids. ... It’s kind of like what

you asked me after the Deming game, ‘Do you feel that this has been a successful year?’ ... Making the playoff three years in a row, I would say that’s being successful.” Arreola took over in 2008, inheriting a program that had won more than three games just once in the previous seven seasons. He won his first game as the program’s head coach, a 21-7 triumph over Ruidoso, but won just two more games over the next two seasons. In 2010, Roswell finished 5-5 and made the playoffs, where they lost to St. Pius in the opening round. With a host of returning lettermen, Roswell opened the 2011

season with six wins in its first eight games and finished above .500 for the first time since the 2000 state championship season. The Coyotes beat Grants 42-6 in the opening round of the playoffs before falling to eventual state champion Aztec in the quarterfinals. After losing nearly every starter off the 2011 team, Roswell won four of its first six games en route to a 5-5 season and a third straight playoff berth. The Coyotes fell to Deming in the opening round on Nov. 16. In five seasons, Arreola was 2034 overall, including an 0-10 mark against archrivals Artesia and Goddard. Arreola was asked to resign on Friday, but refused, saying that

he’s “not a quitter.” “When I first arrived here five years ago, that’s one of the things that people in Roswell talked about, that Roswell kids, when things went bad, would quit,” Arreola said. “One of my goals was that I didn’t want these kids to ever feel that way. I want them to feel, no matter what, if you’re still breathing, you’re still living. “You never give up and you don’t quit, of course. When I was asked to resign, I told them that I would be a hypocrite if I agreed to resign because, to me, when somebody resigns, you’re kind of giving in. You’re quitting. “I did tell them that if they wanted to get rid of me, get rid of me. But, I wasn’t going to resign.” The 44-year -old Lovington

native said that he is running under the assumption that he has been fired. “I have talked to the kids about it already. I met with them on Monday after I found out on Friday,” Arreola said. “I didn’t want to say anything to anybody until I met with them. “I did let our coaches know, our assistant coaches, because, of course, you worry about the people who you work with. And let’s face it, it doesn’t just affect me. It affects other people. And I felt that it was important to let them know what was taking place.” Arreola also confirmed that he cleaned out his office in the football locker room on Tuesday afternoon.

Navy, WWE team up for Tribute to the Troops

NORFOLK, Va. (AP) — When World Wrestling Entertainment airs its annual holiday special, nobody will be more excited to see what’s shown inbetween tag-team shenanigans and bone-rattling body slams than the United States Navy. For the first time in its 10-year history, WWE’s T ribute to the T roops is showcasing the Navy during a taped performance in Nor folk, home to the world’s largest naval base. It is a public relations coup for the Navy, who wrestled away the national spotlight from the Ar my at a time each branch of the military is trying to tout its relevance and value in a time of shrinking budgets. The Pentagon already faces a 10-year reduction of $487 billion in projected spending under a deal reached last year and further cuts could also be on the way. With television crews following close behind, WWE per for mers visited warships, met with wounded warriors at a Navy hospital and flew in a fighter jet, among other things during their visits to several bases. Takeouts of wrestlers interacting with sailors and Marines are expected to make it on air during a two-hour special being aired on USA Network on Wednesday and a one-hour special on NBC on Saturday. “The best thing out of

Paul Haynes introduced as new Kent State coach

KENT, Ohio (AP) — Paul Haynes is right back where he was a skinny walk-on some 25 years ago. Now, he’s in charge of the program he loves so much, and has been given the task of keeping Kent State moving forward. It won’t be easy. Haynes was formally announced as the new coach of the Golden Flashes on Tuesday, and immediately displayed a vibrancy equal of his popular predecessor, Darrell Hazell. He’s going to need it. Not only did Hazell, who left for Purdue, establish a winning culture here, he led the program to the AP poll as well as a bowl berth. “When I got into this profession, one of my goals was to be the coach at Kent State,” said Haynes, who played here as a 168pound defensive back in 1987-91. He was defensive coordinator at Arkansas this year after seven seasons as an assistant at Ohio State. “I can’t believe it. It’s a dream and I haven’t landed yet. It’s been a whirlwind. The last 48 hours have been crazy. “But I’m ready.” Haynes, 43, will step aside so that Hazell, who became coach of the

this is it gives us the opportunity to showcase the absolutely fantastic men and women who make up the United States Navy today,” said Rear Adm. Tim Alexander, commander of Navy Region Mid-Atlantic. “You know our ships are great, our airplanes are great, our submarines are great. There’s no doubt that we have some pretty neat technology, but at the end of the day it’s all about the people.” The wrestling special marks the second straight year the Navy has landed a high-profile nationally televised event that allows it to reach potential recruits as well as those who live away from the coast and may know little about what the service does. Last November, the Carrier Classic basketball game played on the flight deck of the USS Carl Vinson received ESPN’s highest-ever rating for a game played in November. WWE officials also expect a bump in viewership for the holiday special over its typical broadcast. The first seven years WWE filmed its special it did so in Iraq and Afghanistan. The past two years, it highlighted large Ar my communities in North Carolina and Texas. The show is so popular that each branch of the military and bases within those branches compete against each other to host it, simiBoilermakers on Dec. 5, can guide the No. 25 Golden Flashes (11-2) to their first bowl game in 40 years. Kent State will meet Arkansas State in the Bowl on Jan. 6. “I probably won’t even go to a practice. I don’t want to screw it up,” Haynes joked. “I respect Coach Hazell and his staff. They need to finish it out. They’ve done a great job.” Athletic director Joel Nielsen said Haynes was signed to a 5½-year contract at $375,000 annually. Haynes also was an assistant at Michigan State, Louisville, Northern Iowa, Ferris State and Bowling Green. Haynes and Hazell share similar football philosophies. Hazell’s Golden Flashes found success with a strong running game. Haynes, who served with Hazell on Jim Tressel’s staff with the Buckeyes, sees no reason to change. “They have laid the foundation,” Haynes said. “On offense, I believe in running the ball and not turning it over. Defensively, it is stop the run and create turnovers.” Nielsen interviewed several candidates, but said Haynes was clearly the best choice. “His leadership quality kept coming out,” Nielsen said. “We talked with Coach Tressel and many others. They all said he was ready. We talked to Paul two years ago when we hired Darrell. We thought Darrell was a little more ready then. “Now, Paul has done the same. He really wanted this job. We’re happy to have him.” Haynes intends to recruit heavily in Ohio, and will place academics on par with winning. “First, I want to graduate all players with a meaningful degree,” he said. “And I want to win. Everybody wants to win. I’m not going to sacrifice integrity to do it.” Kent State went 8-0 in the Mid-American Conference this season, but lost the league title game to then-No. 21 Northern Illinois, 44-37. One of the season’s memorable moments, was an impressive 35-23 road win at then-No. 15 Rutgers on Oct. 27. “I’m a little nervous addressing everyone today, but maybe when I leave Kent State in 20 or 30 years, I’ll be good at this,” he said. “I have a lot of Kent State pride. I love it here.”

The Navy and the Norfolk area had several things going for it that helped it land the show, Saboor said. In addition to Naval Station Norfolk, there were other Navy installations in neighboring Virginia Beach and Portsmouth that wresters could visit to help broaden the interest in the WWE while reaching a greater cross-section of the Navy. Saboor also said Gov. Bob McDonnell’s office and top Navy leaders went out of their way to help accommodate his crews. While originally conceived at a time the U.S. was fighting two wars, WWE has no intention of ending the annual special anytime soon now that the war in Iraq has come to an end and troops are drawing down in Afghanistan. “Personally, I like the fact that it’s domestic because

Cruz visits home of Giants fan, 6, killed in Conn.

NEWTOWN, Conn. (AP) — New York Giants receiver Victor Cruz has visited the home of the 6-year-old Connecticut shooting

cials that helped boost morale among members of the military, who are among its biggest fans. Sailors waited in long lines to get free tickets to the Norfolk performance and many brought their children, who were also treated to performances by the Muppets. In the weekend the show was taped, wrestlers also spent countless hours signing autographs and taking pictures with sailors and their families. Petty Officer 1st Class Mario Amaro, a 25-year-old

who serves aboard the guided-missile cruiser USS Monterey, was among those getting pictures taken with WWE wrestlers and divas when they toured the amphibious assault ship USS Bataan. “I grew up watching these guys and I’ve been wanting to see them. I’m glad I came into the Navy. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to see them,” Amaro said. “For them to come out here, it’s exciting. It’s something I really wanted to do. I made a special trip to come over here.”

Several elementary school-age children played touch football in the front yard of his family’s home Tuesday. Many wore Giants jerseys or Newtown football or wrestling shirts as they laughed, smiled and hugged. The children and their families left after several hours. Kids carried autographed Giants footballs and jerseys. About 45 minutes later, Cruz left the home in an SUV and an escort of five police cruisers, sirens blaring. He later tweeted that he has “much love to the entire Pinto family. Great people with huge hearts.” Several people leaving the home confirmed Cruz was there.

ding date for next spring. She said they would like for me to come. As if it wouldn’t be painful enough to go to the wedding, his fiancee has also asked me to do her hair for the occasion. (I’m a hairstylist.) Abby, Jordan and I are still having an affair. I want to tell her, but I don’t want him to hate me. I believe this wedding is a big mistake for many reasons, not just the obvious. Please give me some outside advice. CAN’T HELP MYSELF IN OHIO


DEAR ABBY: I am a 31-year-old, never-married mother of two. Last summer I started having an affair with “Jordan,” the father of my first child. He left me when our daughter was a year old and has been engaged for three years in an on-again, off-again relationship. I could give you excuses about why the affair started up again, but the truth is we both knew it was wrong and continued to do it anyway. I never stopped loving him and I thought it would bring him back to me. Today I found out from Jordan’s fiancee that they have set their wed-

DEAR CAN’T HELP YOURSELF: OK, the first thing to do is wake up, smell the coffee and accept that resuming the sexual relationship with Jordan has not had the desired effect. He WILL be marrying someone else. Next, concentrate on saving yourself and waste no more of your time on him — that is, if you would like a permanent, monogamous relationship with someone. Jordan has given you ample proof that he is incapable of being faithful to one woman. And last, tell his fiancee that you do not plan to attend the wedding or do her hair because you are in love


with Jordan and have been sleeping with him since last summer. #####

DEAR ABBY: I have known my husband for seven years and I love him very much, but I am no longer “in love” with him. Somehow along the way the spark has fizzled. We have a wonderful family and have been through so much together. I don’t want a divorce. I want to make our marriage work, and so does he. So how do I get my spark back? SPARKLESS IN TEXAS DEAR SPARKLESS: That you and your husband want your marriage to work means it is capable of being resuscitated. While you didn’t give any details, it is possible that you have been “through so much” that it didn’t allow you to concentrate on each other. Exhaustion and distraction can cause a spark to fizzle. A way to reignite it would be to spend more time alone together, participate in activities you both enjoy, and make time on a regular basis to

talk, relax and touch each other. And if necessary, enlist the services of a licensed marriage counselor. #####

DEAR ABBY: My sister relinquished custody of her kids in a divorce 30 years ago. I recently made contact with them to re-establish lost ties. The contact I made with the daughter has been a wonderful success. The other resulted in complete — and understandable — rejection. Now my sister, who didn’t want to open the door, blames me for her heartache because her son rejected her. Was I wrong for bringing at least one of them back into the family? SISTER IN THE SOUTH DEAR SISTER: Because you did it over your sister’s objections, I think you were. While the daughter seems interested in establishing contact — at least for now — your sister has now “lost” her son TWICE. And if the daughter eventually backs off, your sister will be zero for two.

Dear Readers: Have you seen the hydroponically grown LIVING LETTUCES that are sold in plastic, clamshell containers? I just love them! It is amazing how long these lettuces last! The container is designed to be a “mini-greenhouse,” which is what helps make the product last. The lettuce still has its roots attached, and it sits in a small amount of nutrient-rich liquid. When ready to eat, just take off the number of leaves needed, rinse and eat. Heloise ##### Dear Heloise: I enjoy your column in The (Monroe, La.) News-Star. Before cutting a wedge from a head of lettuce, I remove one large outer leaf. Then I place this leaf over the cut surface like a bandage before wrapping it and putting it in the refrigerator. It greatly reduces the browning of the cut edges. Gayle M., Monroe, La. SEND A GREAT HINT TO: Heloise P.O. Box 795000 San Antonio, TX 78279-5000 Fax: 210-HELOISE Email: Heloise(at)

They are so popular, and this is a clever shortcut, with a fun twist, to making them. Love it! Heloise #####

Dear Heloise: When cooking or baking something that requires eggs, I hate throwing the shells in the garbage can, especially if pickup isn’t for a few days. I take the shells or any offensive-smelling object and put it in a plastic bag, like one the newspaper comes in, and stick it in the door of the freezer. On garbage day, I just open the freezer door and throw out the plastic bag. This works well with shellfish, too. The only trouble is that you have to remember to throw it out! Judy B., Hobe Sound, Fla. Dear Heloise: Your hints have simplified my life in so many ways! Here are two of my favorite baking hints: First, I use an ice-cream scoop with a scraper for placing cupcake batter in liners. This ensures that every cupcake is the same size, and it makes the process mess-free. My second hint comes in handy when making brownies. I scoop the brownie batter into cupcake liners for bite-size brownies. This is a great hint for anyone needing a dessert for a potluck dinner. Holly in Austin, Texas

Dear Heloise: I keep a covered container of crushed soda crackers. It is so quick to put some in a bowl of soup, and it eliminates cracker crumbs. This is especially helpful when you’re serving small children. L.H., Rapid City, S.D.

Dillard’s pays employees $2M in settlements after discrimination claims

AP Photo

Olophius Perry, district director, EEOC Los Angeles District Office, talks during a news conference in Los Angeles, Dec.18.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Department store chain Dillard’s Inc. is paying $2 million to settle charges that it illegally required workers who took sick leave to reveal confidential medical information. The settlement, announced Tuesday by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, resolves a 4-year -old class-action lawsuit that charged Dillard’s with violating the Americans with Disabilities Act. The EEOC said thousands of current and former Dillard’s employees who sought sick leave were forced to submit a doctor’s note explaining not just that they were being treated, but the exact nature of their medical condition. The commission says workers who didn’t feel comfortable disclosing details of their treatment were fired, even when doctors advised them not to reveal private medical information. Dillard’s, which has about 300 stores across 29 states, had argued that the policy was needed to confirm medical absences were legitimate. But the EEOC says employers are not allowed to ask for particulars of treatment unless they are job-related and necessary for the conduct of business. In a statement, Dillard’s

denied that its policies violated the ADA. Anna Park, an EEOC attorney, said some employees were forced to reveal conditions like cancer, mental illness or gynecological information just to get an excused absence. The settlement also resolves allegations that Dillard’s fired some workers for taking more sick leave than the company allowed. The company did not confer with employees to see whether more leave was allowed under federal law to accommodate a worker’s disability, the EEOC said. Under a three-year consent decree, Dillard’s will pay $2 million to identified victims and establish a class fund for victims who are not yet identified. Park said at least 75 employees who were victims of the policies have been identified at a Dillard’s store in El Centro, Calif., which was the subject of the EEOC’s initial lawsuit. She expects thousands more to come forward. The consent decree requires Dillard’s to hire a consultant to review and revise company policies and train supervisors and staff on federal disability law.

Nielsen to buy Arbitron for about $1.26B

NEW YORK (AP) — Nielsen, the dominant source of TV ratings, on Tuesday said it had agreed to buy Arbitron for about $1.26 billion to expand into radio measurement. Arbitron pays 70,000 people to carry around gadgets that register what stations they’re listening to. Since Nielsen also collects cash register data, CEO David Calhoun said buying Arbitron will let Nielsen be a one-stop shop for advertisers who want to know how the radio advertising they buy affects product sales. The acquisition will let

Nielsen expand the amount of media consumption it tracks by about 2 hours per person per day to 7 hours, Calhoun said in an interview. “You don’t find many mediums that allow for that kind of increase,” Calhoun said. Arbitron’s operations are mainly in the U.S., while Nielsen operates globally. Calhoun said another major driver for the deal is that Nielsen wants to spread Arbitron’s tracking technology to other countries. Evercore Partners analyst Douglas Arthur said

Nielsen doesn’t need traditional radio measurement to grow, but Arbitron seemed like a willing seller, and it will be a “nice complementary but not ‘must have’ platform.” Nielsen Holdings N.V. said it will pay $48 per share, which is a 26 percent premium to Arbitron’s Monday closing price of $38.04. Shares of Arbitron, which is based in Columbia, Md., jumped $8.99, or 23.6 percent, to close at $47.03. Nielsen, which went public in January 2011, has headquarters in the Netherlands and New York.

Its stock added $1.30, or 4.4 percent, to close at $30.92. Nielsen said it expects the deal to add about 13 cents per share to its adjusted earnings a year after closing and about 19 cents per share to adjusted earnings two years after closing. Abitron’s chief operating officer, Sean Creamer, is set to take over as CEO from William Kerr on Jan. 1. Calhoun said he hoped Creamer would remain with Nielsen after the deal closes.

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Instagram, the popular mobile photo-sharing service now owned by Facebook, is the target of a storm of outrage, much of it on social media, after changes in its user agreement give it broader rights to use its members’ photos in advertisements. In a blog post that offered few details, Instagram said the changes will help its service “function more easily as part of Facebook by being able to share info between the two groups.” Facebook Inc. also recently updated its privacy policy to allow for more integration with Instagram. “This means we can do things like fight spam more effectively, detect system and reliability problems more quickly, and build better features for everyone by understanding how Instagram is used,” the blog post said, adding that the updates also “help protect you, and prevent spam and abuse as we grow.” But the biggest change riling users and privacy advocates is Instagram’s new assertion that it may now receive payments from businesses to use your photos, user name and other data “in connection with paid or sponsored content or promotions, without any compensation to you.” Instagram’s short blog post on Monday made no

mention of advertisements or other commercial activities, though it offered links to the new privacy policy and terms of service. Those documents spell out what the service could do, but say little about actual plans. Facebook, which bought Instagram in September for $740 million, already uses your photo and other information about you to show advertisements to your friends. Say you’ve “liked” Samsung Mobile. Facebook might then show your friends ads for Samsung and include the fact that you “like” the company’s page. Your profile photo and name would appear with what Facebook calls “sponsored stories.” Instagram’s new policy, which takes effect Jan. 16, suggests that Facebook wants to integrate Instagram into its ad-serving system. Under the current policy, Instagram is not as explicit in saying how it uses its members’ photographs. But the company already has the right to use people’s public content as it sees fit, though the photographers keep socalled “ownership” of the photos. The new terms make it clearer that Instagram could use your photos to market to your friends. The fast-growing service has become a popular way to

share photos from cell phones. The Instagram app, available for the iPhone and Android devices, offers a variety of filters to give photos a retro feel or other look. Although many other apps also offer filters for enhancing photos, they don’t offer the sharing features and community aspects of Instagram. Instagram has had a loyal following since before Facebook bought it. The purchase worried some of the earliest fans of the service, who feared Facebook would swallow up their beloved community.

Users must accept the new terms when they go into effect or leave the Instagram. Twitter users were vowing to cancel their Instagram accounts. They complained that the new terms would essentially let the service sell people’s photos for ads. But if Facebook’s experience is any indication, few users tend to carry out such threats. Over the years, Facebook’s frequent and complicated privacy policy changes have irked users, but the social media site has grown to house more than a billion user accounts since its founding in 2004.

shocked the world and he did it.” After Manziel sat out as a redshirt in 2011, Texas A&M’s scheduled season-opener against Louisiana Tech this year was postponed because of Hurricane Isaac. That left him to get his first taste of live defense in almost two years against Florida. He responded well, helping the Aggies race to a 17-7 lead early using both his ar m and his feet. The Gators shut down Manziel and A&M’s offense in the second half and Texas A&M lost 20-17. But Manziel’s performance was enough for Texas A&M’s coaching staff to realize that his scrambling ability was going to be a big part of what the Aggies could do this season. “The first half really showed that I was a little bit more mobile than we had seen throughout the spring,” Manziel said. “Me and (then-offensive coordinator) Kliff Kingsbury sat down and really said: ‘Hey we can do some things with my feet as well as throwing the ball.’ And it added a little bit of a new dimension.” Manziel knew that the biggest adjustment from playing in high school to college would be the speed of the game. Exactly how quick play-

we can win and that has to be your mindset,” coach Mike Shanahan said. “When you win close games, you expect it.” The Cowboys’ division hopes came down to the final game at New York last year. The Giants won 31-14. Dallas could be in the same position this season, playing for first place in Week 17. Only difference is the game is at Washington. “I think our football team has developed that mental toughness that no matter what’s going on during the game, as bad as it may look or whatever, we get to that fourth quarter, we have a shot to win the game,” quarterback Tony Romo said after an overtime win against Pittsburgh. “We believe that we can do that. We have had a lot of comeback wins this year.” Here’s a breakdown for the top three teams in the East: — The Giants were sitting comfortably atop the stand-

not very good on shooting from the outside,” said Hagerman coach Anthony Mestas. “We missed several open jumpers and several 3-pointers. “We battled through it and we tried to make it a close game there at the end. We just couldn’t get the job done. Alejandro Ramos led the Bobcats (6-2) with 18 points and Jose Bejarano chipped in 15.

Tularosa 47, Dexter 39 TULAROSA — Dexter got off to a slow start and could never recover in a loss to Tularosa, Tuesday. The Demons scored just two first-quarter points and could never make up the lost ground. In the final three quarters, Tularosa outscored the Demons by just one point. “We came out flat tonight,” said Dexter coach James Voight. “That really hurt us. After that, it was an even ballgame. “We got down early, after that, we played pretty good. That first quarter got us.” David Lopez led the Demons (5-3) with 11 points and Missael Barrientos added 10.

ers in the SEC were was still a jolt to the quarterback. “The whole first drive I was just seeing how fast they really flew to the ball and I felt like they just moved a whole lot faster,” he said of the Florida game. “It was different than what I was used to, different than what I was used to in high school. So it was just having to learn quick and adjust on the fly.” He did just that and started piling up highlight reel material by deftly avoiding would-be tacklers to help the Aggies run off five consecutive wins after that. His storybook ride hit a roadblock when he threw a season-high three interceptions in a 24-19 loss to LSU. But Manziel used it as a learning experience, taking to heart some advice he received from Kingsbury. “He just told me to have a plan every time, before every snap,” Manziel said. “Make sure you have a plan on what you want to do and where you want to go with the ball.” “I feel like as the year went on, I just learned the offense more and knew exactly where I wanted to go, instead of maybe evading the blitz and just taking off running for the first down instead of hitting a hot route or throwing it underneath to an open guy and doing things a lot simpler and cleaner.” The Aggies and Manziel rebounded

ings at 6-2, but have lost four of six in the second half. They’ve been a Jekylland-Hyde team over the past month, alter nating impressive wins with lackluster losses. A convincing 38-10 romp over Green Bay on Nov. 25 was followed up with a 17-16 loss to the Redskins. The Giants rebounded with a resounding 52-27 rout over New Orleans only to come back with an abysmal effort in a 34-0 loss at Atlanta. “Unfortunately, we’ve had bad games in the past,” coach Tom Coughlin said. “We have used the theme of consistency. Consistency two-fold: one, in terms of our execution and our performance, but the second thing is, the passion and so-on and so-forth that we bring to each and every game knowing the circumstances. Our team does know the circumstances very well.” The Giants entered their last two games last year off a disappointing loss to Washington. Then they beat the Jets to keep their playoff hopes alive and whipped Dallas to secure the division Hondo Valley 63, NMMI 60 HONDO — The Colts had four players in double figures, but it wasn’t enough in a loss to Hondo Valley, Tuesday. “I was proud of them because we actually played poorly at the beginning,” said Colt coach Pilar Carrasco. “We actually had a lead with a few minutes to go, but just made some mistakes at the end. “To be 6-4 going into the (Christmas) break, I can live with that. We’re getting better and that’s always gratifying to a coach.” Angel Reyes led the Colts with 20 points. Blade Allen added 14, Jemel Kaba had 12 and Richard Trujillo chipped in 11.

Girls basketball

Hondo Valley 63, NMMI 40 HONDO — In their final game before a long Christmas break, the Colts fell to the host Eagles, Tuesday. “We didn’t have a good night,” said NMMI coach Marisha Olesinski. “I think (the girls’) minds weren’t very much into the game. “We started the game not focused, and had too many tur novers, too many bad passes and some not very good shots. We didn’t set a good tone for the game.” The Colts fell to 4-4 with the loss.

from the loss to LSU by winning their last five games, highlighted by their stunning 29-24 upset of top-ranked Alabama on Nov. 10. By the time Manziel wrapped up a 253-yard passing and 92-yard rushing performance to lead Texas A&M to the victory in Tuscaloosa, you could hardly call him a freshman anymore. “You keep growing and growing every week,” he said. “By the time I played Alabama I had a much better grasp of the game than I did in the first one.” The 4,600 yards of total offense Manziel gained in 12 games broke the SEC record for total yards in a season. The record was previously held by 2010 Heisman winner Newton, who needed 14 games to pile up 4,327 yards. The output also made him the first freshman, first player in the SEC and fifth player overall to throw for 3,000 yards and run for 1,000 in a season. Manziel, who turned 20 two days before taking home the Heisman, has been so busy he hasn’t had a second to step back and digest the historical significance of his accomplishments this season. He’s far more concerned with helping the Aggies extend their winning streak to six games with a win over Oklahoma on Jan. 4 in the Cotton Bowl.

title. Repeating won’t be easy. The Giants visit the reeling Baltimore Ravens (9-5) on Sunday. The Ravens already clinched their fifth consecutive trip to the playoffs, but have lost three in a row and are desperate to straighten things out. “This is as important a game as you can have, this upcoming game, and our mindset is the playoffs have started,” Manning said. “This is it. This game right here is huge. It’s the most important game and it’s a must-win game for us.” That mentality has been a proven formula for success for the Giants. “We can draw on the experience. We did a year ago, six times in a row,” Coughlin said. “That’s kind of what we have to do here. If we’re going to have an opportunity to get into the playoffs at all, we’ve got to win the next two games. Sort of the way it was a year ago.” The Giants finish up with a home game against Philadelphia (4-10). The Eagles seem like a pushover, but they beat

Roswell Daily Record “I think it will happen after the bowl game and after the season is completely over,” he said. “I’m just ready for it to die down a little bit and get back into a practice routine where we get better and hopefully do what we want to do in the bowl game.” He’ll have to do it without his mentor Kingsbury, who left A&M last week to become coach at Texas Tech, where he starred at quarterback not that long ago. Manziel said he is happy Kingsbury got to return to his alma matter, but is still adjusting to the idea of playing without him. “I’m the happiest guy on the face of the Earth for him,” Manziel said, speaking from California where he appeared on the “Tonight Show” Monday evening. “I think he deserves it with how hard he’s worked this year to get us where we were. It’s bittersweet though, because I’d like him to be here for the entire time that I’m here.” Manziel is eager to get back on the field for the Cotton Bowl and is focused on helping the offense pick up where it left off in the regular season finale. “Even though Kliff Kingsbury’s not here anymore, we just need to continue to get better and do what we do,” Manziel said. “Push tempo, go fast and be the high-flying offense that we have been all year.”

New York in Week 4. — The Redskins were counted out by their own coach when they were 3-6. But Robert Griffin III has them in position to ear n their first playof f berth since 2007. Their five straight wins include victories over the Cowboys, Giants and Ravens. Even with RGIII sidelined by a knee injury, the Redskins rolled over Cleveland with another rookie, Kirk Cousins, at quarterback. Griffin could be back for this week’s game at Philadelphia. These aren’t the same Eagles who looked pathetic in a 31-6 loss at FedEx Field last month. But these clearly aren’t the same Redskins, who started their winning streak with that lopsided victory against Philadelphia. A win over the lowly Eagles would set up a potential all-or -nothing matchup against Dallas. “I told our football team at the beginning of the year that, ‘You guys don’t know it, but you guys are a lot better than you think you are,”‘ Shanahan said. “They’ve obviously been proving that now.”

— The Cowboys were 3-5 midway through the schedule and headed nowhere before winning five of six and three in a row. They’ve overcome tragedy — the death of practice squad player Jerry Brown — and a slew of injuries, particularly on defense. The wins haven’t been pretty lately, but they count the same. Two more and Dallas gets in. That injury-depleted defense has a difficult test coming up against Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints (6-8) on Sunday. The Saints snapped a threegame losing streak with a 41-0 win over Tampa Bay that knocked the Buccaneers out of playoff contention last Sunday. “We’ve got to focus on the task, and the task is to beat the New Orleans Saints,” coach Jason Garrett said. “They had a great win against Tampa, so we’ve got to get our preparation right. We’ll do it day by day and hopefully put our best foot forward on Sunday.”

Gaines resigns at Permian LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) — Gary Gaines, the 63-yearold high school coach at the center of the “Friday Night Lights” book and film, has left the Odessa Per mian sideline for the last time. Gaines said he resigned from the West Texas football pr ogram he helped make famous. He said he doubts he’ll coach again but wasn’t sure what’s next for him. “We’re going to give it to someone else and, hopefully, they can make more out of it than we did,” Gaines said. “We came her e to make some deep playof f runs and we weren’t able to do that. That’s what (Permian fans) expect, and I expect as well.” He leaves with a 69-28-1 r ecor d in eight years as Per mian’s head coach, including a 23-21 mark in his last four years. In all, he coached Permian from 1986-89 and 2009-12, and was an assistant there for thr ee years in the early 1980s. His second stint in Odessa included a lone playoff victory and no district championships.

Gaines led the program to a state 5A championship in 1989. The Panthers were undefeated that season, just a year after H.G. “Buzz” Bissinger spent a year in town researching his best-seller, which chronicled how high school football binds an oil patch community. T odd Veseley, athletic director of the Ector school district, said it would be a “daunting” task to replace Gaines. He declined to say whether he asked Gaines to step down following the Panthers’ disappointing 5-6 season. “Any time anyone the quality of coach Gaines leaves, it leaves a vacuum,” he said. Gaines would not say dir ectly whether he was asked to resign. “It was just one of those things,” he said. “I understand when programs don’t impr ove sometimes the head coach has to bear that responsibility.” Made into a movie in 2004, Bissinger’s book was a hit everywher e but Odessa. Locals felt Bissinger betrayed their hospitality by writing about

the sociological woes surr ounding the team and town, including allegations of racism and a win-at-allcosts mentality. An NBC television series with the same name was less about football than the community depicted. After leading the Panthers to the state title more than 20 years ago, Gaines left Per mian to become linebackers coach at Texas Tech. He left coaching in 2005 after five years at Abilene Christian to return to Odessa as the school district’s athletic director. Two years later, he moved north to take a similar post in Lubbock. The once-vaunted Panthers have won six state titles but none since 1991. Before Gaines’ return in 2009, the Permian program enjoyed something of a revival, making it to three regional finals the previous four seasons while compiling a 38-11 record under Darren Allman, a for mer Permian player and Gaines protege who left in 2009 to take the coaching job at Austin Westlake.

Roswell Daily Record

Entertainment notebook: Engel’s disappearance kept secret

NEW YORK (AP) — NBC was able to keep the abduction of chief Middle East correspondent Richard Engel in Syria largely a secret until he escaped late Monday because it persuaded some of this country’s most prominent news organizations to hold back on the story. Otherwise, the disappearance of Engel — probably the most high-profile international television reporter on a U.S. network — would have been big news. Engel and three colleagues, producers Ghazi Balkiz and Aziz Akyavas and photographer John Kooistra, escaped during a firefight between rebels and their captors, forces sympathetic to the Syrian government. The journalists were dragged from their cars, kept bound and blindfolded and threatened with death. NBC said it did not know what had happened to the men until after their escape. The first sign of trouble came last Thursday, when Engel did not check back with his office at an agreedupon time. The Associated Press learned of Engel’s disappearance independently and was asked to keep the news quiet upon contacting NBC, said John Daniszewski, the AP’s vice president and senior managing editor. “A general principle of our reporting is that we don’t want to write stories that are going to endanger the lives of the people that we are writing about,” Daniszewski said. The first few days after an abduction are often crucial to securing the captive’s release. CBS News also said that it had honored NBC’s request, but a spokeswoman declined to discuss it. ABC, Fox News and CNN were also contacted by NBC. CNN, in an editor’s note affixed to a website story on Engel’s escape, noted NBC’s request. CNN said it complied to allow fact-finding and negotiations to free the captors before it became a worldwide story. “Hostage negotiators say that once the global spotlight is on the missing, the hostages’ value soars, making it much harder to negotiate their freedom,” CNN said. For similar reasons, the AP did not report its own news several years ago when a photographer was kidnapped in the Gaza Strip, securing his release within a day. In one celebrated case of secrecy, The New York Times withheld news that reporter David Rohde was kidnapped while trying to make contact with a Taliban commander in Afghanistan. Rohde escaped after seven months in captivity.

Cassadee Pope wins Season 3 of ‘The Voice’

NEW YORK (AP) — Cassadee Pope, who was country singer Blake Shelton’s protege on the third season of NBC’s “The Voice,” has won the show’s competition. The 23-year-old singer is stepping out into a solo career after performing with a band called Hey Monday. Her victory over Scottish native Terry McDermott and long-bearded Nicholas David was announced at the end of a two-hour show Tuesday. “The Voice” has grown into a hit for NBC and was the key factor in the network’s surprising success this fall. The show’s status was affirmed by the stream of hitmakers who performed on the finale. They included Rihanna, Bruno Mars, the Killers, Smokey Robinson and Peter Frampton.

Pentagon investigating top intelligence official

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Pentagon says its top intelligence official, who has been mentioned as a possible candidate to be the next CIA director, is under investigation in connection with information he provided to makers of a movie about the raid that killed Osama bin

Laden. Pentagon press secretary George Little said Tuesday evening that the investigation of Michael Vickers is being conducted by the Pentagon’s inspector general. Vickers is the undersecretary of defense for intelligence. Little said Vickers only provided unclassified information to the makers of the movie “Zero Dark Thirty,” and that the session was

arranged in July 2011 by the Pentagon’s office of public affairs. Little said Defense Secretary Leon Panetta has full confidence in Vickers.

McCain rejects scene in ‘Zero Dark Thirty’

WASHINGTON (AP) — The movie “Zero Dark Thirty” suggests that the CIA’s harsh interrogation techniques led the U.S. to

Osama bin Laden. Sen. John McCain watched the movie Monday night and says it left him sick — because it’s wrong. McCain, who spent 5 1/2 years enduring brutal treatment by his North Vietnamese captors during the Vietnam War, has insisted that the waterboarding of alQaida’s No. 3 leader, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, did not provide information that led to the bin Laden’s com-

pound in Pakistan. Yet the movie, a copy of which McCain received Monday, indicates that’s how the United States found the alQaida leader. The filmmakers fell for it “hook, line and sinker,” McCain, R-Ariz., said Tuesday. Last year, McCain asked then-CIA Director Leon Panetta for the facts, and he said the hunt for bin Laden did not begin with fresh information from

Mohammed. In fact, the name of bin Laden’s courier, Abu Ahmed al-Kuwaiti, came from a detainee held in another country. “Not only did the use of enhanced interrogation techniques on Khalid Sheikh Mohammed not provide us with key leads on bin Laden’s courier, Abu Ahmed, it actually produced false and misleading information,” McCain said in a speech on the Senate floor.
