MCLEAN, Va. (AP) — Robert H. Bork, who stepped in to fire the Watergate prosecutor at Richard Nixon’s behest and whose failed 1987 nomination to the Supreme Court helped draw the modern boundaries of cultural fights over abortion, civil rights and other issues, has died. He was 85. - PAGE A6

SANTA FE (AP) — House Speaker Ben Lujan, one of the most power ful and longest-serving state legislators in New Mexico history and the father of U.S. Rep. Ben Ray Lujan, died late Tuesday at age 77 after a long battle with lung cancer, a spokesman for his son said. He died at about 10:45 p.m. Tuesday after a brief stay at Christus St. Vincent’s hospital in Santa Fe, Andrew Stoddard, a spokesman for Congressman Lujan, said early

Wednesday. Ben Lujan, a Democrat from Nambe, announced his battle with the illness and his planned retirement at the opening of the 2012 legislative session. He spent half of his life as a state lawmaker, winning his first election to the House in 1974. Only one other House member, Democrat Nick Salazar, served longer than Lujan, according to the Legislative Council Service. Lujan said he was diagnosed with advanced stage

cancer in late 2009 and had undergone radiation and chemotherapy treatment. As news spread of Lujan’s passing, both Democrats and Republicans began to praise Lujan for his work as a lawmaker and as a speaker. “He fought for causes near and dear to New Mexicans from all walks of life and guided the House of Representatives through some of the most important debates in our state’s history,” said Gov. Susana Mar-

tinez. “Speaker Lujan’s story was one that embodied the New Mexican dream and the American dream.”

In a statement, former Gov. Bill Richardson called Lujan a “giant” in New Mexico politics. “He will go down in history as (New Mexico’s) greatest speaker,” Richardson said. “His legislative contributions were far reaching as he authored major legislation on health care, education, roads and

Heavy winds Wednesday took a toll on Chaves County. speeds Wind approached 60 mph in some areas, which impacted driving conditions throughout the day. State Road 2 was closed for several hours starting at 11:30 a.m. after dust storms caused four accidents, and police had to slow traffic on the Relief Route after poor visibility led to an accident. New Mexico State Police Capt. Dina Orozco said she believed all five accidents were without injury and were within about a one-hour time period. “Any time you get that much dust blowing across the highway, that can be pretty bad,” said Lt. Britt Snyder of Chaves County Sherif f’s Of fice, which assisted State Police with traffic control. “Given that many wrecks, this would definitely be one of our worst dust days, absolutely. ... And things are just so dry out there.” Xcel Energy spokesman Wes Reeves said about 300 customers were without power Wednesday due to wind. He said all but four customers had power restored by 6:30 p.m.

Obama to send Congress gun proposals in January

WASHINGTON (AP) — Declaring the time for action overdue, President Barack Obama promised on Wednesday to send Congress broad proposals in January for tightening gun laws and curbing violence after last week’s schoolhouse massacre in Connecticut.

Even before those proposals are drafted, Obama pressed lawmakers to reinstate a ban on militarystyle assault weapons, close loopholes that allow gun buyers to skirt background checks and restrict high-capacity ammunition clips. “The fact that this prob-

lem is complex can no longer be an excuse for doing nothing,” Obama said in his most detailed comments on guns since Friday’s killing of 20 schoolchildren and six adults in Newtown, Conn. “The fact that we can’t prevent every act of violence doesn’t mean we can’t steadily reduce the violence.”

Gun control measures have faced fierce resistance in Congress for years but that may be changing now because of last week’s violence. Since then, Obama has signaled for the first See OBAMA, Page A2

Commission opposes Obama, Boehner How the mail tech prairie chicken listing clash at cliff’s edge saved Christmas CHAUNTE’L POWELL RECORD STAFF WRITER

Roswell postal worker Richard Anglada made perhaps his biggest Christmas delivery before the holiday season even began. Anglada usually works at the main post office, but on Oct. 19, the business mail entry unit technician was working overtime at the Carrier Annex and stumbled upon a rather odd looking envelope. The envelope was unmarked and contained $953.35 in cash. Without hesitation, Anglada made the decision to turn the money in to his supervisor. “My first thought was somebody must have, by mistake, thrown it in the mail,” he said. “My first thought after that, was to tur n it in and hope somebody calls soon to claim it.” He turned the money in to his supervisor, who after talking to the postmaster tur ned the money in to the Roswell Police Department. Meanwhile, Rachel Melendez was busy running errands around town. She mailed her letters, went to church, and the next morning, she and her husband left for Albuquerque. After the hustle and bustle of a busy day died down, she realized she had misplaced her envelope filled with money. She said she began praying and thinking back to all the places she had been that day. Though it was a longshot in her mind, she decided to call the post of fice when it opened on Monday morning and see if anyone had tur ned in the money. Anglada said he left specific instructions with

the post office’s receptionist to inform him if anyone were to call about an envelope full of money so he could tell them where they needed to go to pick it up. Monday morning he did in fact receive a call from a woman relieved that he had done the right thing.

“I was giving God all the glory that he was a godly man and did the right thing,” Melendez said. “I mean, it was cash, he could’ve easily kept it ... when I called, I was just in shock that somebody had actually found it.”

As a small token of her appreciation, she gave Anglada an envelope of his own with $40 inside. He refused to accept the monetary gift but did, however, take the thank you card and cinnamon rolls that were also offered. He said he still stands by his decision not to accept the money. “I told her, ‘I was just doing my job,’” he said. “I said I’d take the thanks, but I said I can’t take your cash; I’m just doing my job.”

Melendez disagrees, saying he went above and beyond the call of duty. She added that she would definitely enjoy her holiday season knowing that there are still good-hearted people in the world. “It’s nice to know that as much evil that is around us, there are still people who honor God and honor their jobs,” she said. “...He was an honorable man and I respect him for that.”

The County Commission approved a resolution that opposed the listing of the lesser prairie chicken as a threatened species Wednesday at its regular business meeting. County Manager Stan Riggs said the process began last week in a telephone conference call with six New Mexico counties involved in the habitat of the species. Riggs said Chaves County is looking to connect with other af fected counties from Texas, Kansas, Colorado and Oklahoma. The resolution included the appointment of representatives who had already helped fight the dunes sagebrush lizard listing. “We’re putting the band back together, so to speak,” Riggs said. “We’re getting the group all going again to fight this.” Commissioner Greg Nibert said the organization American Stewards of Liberty will again be consulting commissioners throughout the process. He said that while Eddy, Lea and Chaves counties are already familiar with the process after the dunes sagebrush lizard fight, norther n counties like Union, Quay and Curry are not. “I think in short order, there will be some effort to try to get all the counties affected in those five states to begin mapping out some coordinated game plan like we had with the lizard,” Nibert said. Commissioner Kim Chesser agreed that a joint ef fort will again be key. “One of the things that spoke really loudly was the counties joining together. And if we (have) counties and states going together, I just really feel like that would carry a strong message.” Nibert said the issue will be placed on a fast track due to a U.S. Fish and

Wildlife Service public meeting on Feb. 12 at ENMU-R’s Performing Arts Center. The meeting is the only one the department has scheduled, but Chaves County will push for another coordination meeting like they had for the dunes sagebrush lizard, Nibert said. “We need to be prepared, basically over the next six or seven weeks, to engage in this issue,” he said. “... After the 1st of the year, this thing will get rolling pretty quick. There are a number of aspects to it, and we’re just going to have to focus on what the counties can do and let the other people run with the other balls. But it’s an issue that’s important to Chaves County, particularly the ranchers and the oil and gas industries. “Hopefully the citizens will have the same response that they had to the sagebrush lizard, and we can rely on that support and maybe have a similar result a year from now.” In other business, Commissioners approved a fire apparatus fund replacement schedule with the stipulation that it include routine maintenence records for each piece of equipment. The schedule is described as a 30-year working document that will be monitored in the budget each year. Chairman Smiley Wooton proclaimed Dec. 19, 2012, “Rhoda Coakley Day” ahead of Coakley’s retirement at the end of the month, lauding the longtime county clerk for presiding over numerous elections and for her dedication to office. Wooton also proclaimed Dec. 31, 2012, “Richard Taylor Day,” crediting Taylor for his help in “shaping the future of Chaves County.” Taylor served as a commissioner in District 4 for eight years and will be replaced by Robert Corn in January.

Peter Shangraw, 36, is wanted for assault on a household member, and aggravated battery against a household member, following an incident that occurred Dec. 3. Shangraw is described as 5 feet 11 inches, weight 155 pounds, with green eyes and brown hair. Anyone with information about Shangraw is asked to contact Crime Stoppers, 888-594-TIPS (8477). Callers may remain anonymous and could be eligible for a reward.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Fiscal cliff talks at a partisan standoff, President Barack Obama and House Speaker John Boehner swapped barbed political charges on Wednesday yet carefully left room for further negotiations on an elusive deal to head of f year -end tax increases and spending cuts that threaten the national economy. Republicans should “peel off the war paint” and take the deal he’s of fering, Obama said sharply at the White House. He buttressed his case by noting he had won re-election with a call for higher taxes on the wealthy, then he said pointedly that the nation aches for conciliation, not a contest of ideologies, after last week’s mass murder at a Connecticut elementary school. But he drew a quick retort from Boehner when the White House threatened to veto a fallback bill drafted by House Republicans that would prevent tax increases for all but million-dollar earners. The president will bear responsibility for “the largest tax increase in history” if he makes good on that threat, the Ohio Republican declared. In fact, it’s unlikely the legislation will get that

far as divided gover nment careens into the final few days of a struggle that affects the pocketbooks of millions and blends lasting policy differences with deep political mistrust. Boehner expressed confidence the Republicans’ narrow so-called Plan B bill would clear the House today despite opposition from some conservative, anti-tax dissidents, but a cold reception awaits in the Democratic-controlled Senate. As for a broader agreement, officials said there had been little if any progress toward closing the gap between the two sides in the past two days, even though aides to the president and Boehner have remained in contact. On paper, the two sides are relatively close to an agreement on major issues, each having offered concessions in an intensive round of talks that began late last week. But political considerations are substantial, particularly for Republicans. After two decades of resolutely opposing any tax increases, Boehner is seeking votes from fellow Republicans for legislation that tacitly lets rates rise on million-dollar income tax filers.

time in his presidency that he’s willing to spend political capital on the issue and some prominent gun-rights advocates on Capitol Hill — Democrats and Republicans alike — have expressed willingness to consider new measures. Still, given the long history of opposition to tighter gun laws, there is no certainty the legislation Obama backed Wednesday or the proposals he will send to Congress next month will become law. Obama tasked Vice President Joe Biden, a longtime gun control advocate, with overseeing the administrationwide process to create those proposals. Beyond firear ms’ restrictions, officials will also look for ways to increase mental health resources and consider steps to keep society from glamorizing guns and violence. Obama’s January deadline underscores the desire among White House of ficials to respond swiftly to the Newtown shooting. Obama aides worry that as the shock of the shooting fades, so, too, will the prospects that pro-gun lawmakers will work with the White House to tighten restric-

Emphasizing the need to take action, Obama said eight people have been killed by guns across the U.S. since the Newtown shooting. Among them were a 4year -old boy and three law enforcement officers.

The president has called for a national dialogue on gun violence before, after other mass shootings during his presidency. But his rhetoric has not been backed up with concrete action. And some of the gun measures Obama has signed lessened restrictions on guns, allowing people to carry concealed weapons in national parks and in checked bags on Amtrak trains. The president bristled at suggestions that he had been silent on gun issues during his four years in office. But he acknowledged that the Newtown shooting had been “a wake-up call for all of us.”

Obama, seeking to ease the fears of gun owners, reiterated his support for the Second Amendment. And he said no effort to reduce gun violence would be successful without their participation.

Utilities squeeze extra dollars in obscure add-ons A new technical whizbang called E-911 was being introduced by the phone company. It was baloney, the senator told me. E-911 was going to be a new way for emergency responders to know exactly where a phone call was coming from. When a call came to a 911 call center, a message would pop up automatically showing the phone number, which could then be linked to an address. This was 1991 or so. The phone company, US West in those days, was asking the state for approval to add 50 cents to everyone’s phone bill to cover the cost. The senator told me the technology had been developed anyway, and the 50 cents was pure profit to the phone company. The increase was approved. Caller -ID was introduced shortly afterward, making the same technology available to everyone (for a much heftier price than 50 cents), demon-




strating that the senator was probably right. The technology was there. But E-911 succeeded in squeezing more money out of you and me. The phone company’s lobbyists were the nicest guys in Santa Fe. They were pleasant, friendly, cheer ful, the sort of guys you would hate to disappoint by voting against their bill. They even had a traveling liquor supply. When somebody hosted a party for legislators during the interim, away from Santa Fe, the phone company’s junior guy would show up with a carton containing a generous selection

of liquor. The next day he would pick up the leftovers for the next party. A few years later he was a Cabinet secretary. (During legislative sessions, in that period, a vice president of PNM was the cold cuts guy, regularly delivering a grocery bag full of sandwich makings to the House majority leader’s private office refrigerator.) The principle behind the regulation of public utilities is that when government protects a private business from competition by granting it monopoly status, that business is accountable to consumers, through their government, for the quality of its service and for reasonable cost. I have long suspected that public utilities, regulated monopolies, and companies that are almost monopolies — big companies with lots of captive customers — are increasingly taking advantage of those cus-

tomers by squeezing extra dollars out of them, often in the form of numerous small add-on fees that customers don’t understand and can’t fight. Look at your phone bill and see if you understand what every item is for. There is an argument that they are no longer monopolies because of competition from cell phone companies, satellite TV and so on; but I have been suspicious of that. Someone has figured it out. In a new book, “The Fine Print,” investigative reporter David Cay Johnston explains in detail how some of them do it, including how lawmakers and regulators are either bamboozled by the complexity of the issues or coopted by being hired later by the companies they regulated. I am a big fan of Johnston’s previous books, which should be required reading for legislators and regulators. In New Mexico, the structure

for utility regulation is set by legislation, and then regulatory decisions are made by the Public Regulation Commission. In 2013, because of the constitutional amendment we passed, the Legislature is supposed to enact laws establishing qualifications for PRC candidates. We need future commissioners to have the analytical skills to understand the issues in utility regulation and the backbone to resist the blandishments of the utility lobbyists, no matter how nice they are. Perhaps the new law could include some conflictof-interest prevention, such as a requirement that commissioners and their immediate families are barred from working for or consulting for any regulated utility, or any company affiliated with a regulated utility, for a minimum of 10 years.

Small business slammed

Tax policy — or the lack thereof — has consequences. Americans are seeing that uncertainty about the federal fiscal cliff is sparking investors to make moves to profit now, instead of getting hit with potentially much higher taxes in 2013. “Tax-related selling may be behind the weaker trend in the shares of market leader Apple,” whose stock is down 20 percent in this quarter, Reuters reported. “Of this year’s top 20 performers in the S&P 1500 index, which includes large, small and mid-cap stocks, all but four have lost ground in the last five trading sessions.” “It’s very simple,” Dan Mitchell told us; he’s a senior fellow at the libertarian Cato Institute. “The capital gains tax could go from 15 percent to 23.8 percent. The dividends tax could go from 15 percent to 43.8 percent. And that’s not to mention ordinary income tax rates,” which could go from 35 percent to 39.6 percent for the top rate. “If you have any discretion with your money, you will try to protect it.” Mitchell also pointed to how Costco Wholesale Corp. and the Washington Post Company are issuing dividends this year to avoid higher taxes next year. Ironically, both companies were big supporters of the reelection of President Barack Obama, who is pushing for the higher federal tax rates. Mitchell added that what we’re really seeing is a “timing issue.” By itself, that doesn’t mean much. Companies and investors shift money around all the time. But the deeper meaning is that “taxes matter. The real problem is what these tax increases mean for long-term growth and competitiveness.” Obama and other tax-increase advocates — such as California Gov. Jerry Brown — insist tax hikes are needed so the rich “pay their fair share.” But Mitchell said that’s not what really happens. The truly wealthy, he said, have money in stocks and bonds, which gives them “flexibility,” making it easier to shift funds to avoid taxes. Instead, he said, the tax increases “are a big problem for the small business and the entrepreneur. They don’t have the liquidity of the really rich. If you own a muffler shop, or a couple of Applebee’s or an accounting firm, your income is your cash flow. Your liquidity is used to hire workers. Obama is pushing class warfare, but that really hits small business. The really rich shrug this off like a horse swatting a fly.” Many small businesses file taxes as S corporations, which means they’re taxed at individual rates. So the higher tax rates aimed at the “rich” also will hit companies that are hoping to use profits for expansion and jobs creation. According to a 2010 report by the Small Business Administration’s Office of Advocacy, from 60 to 80 percent of new jobs are created by small businesses. The national unemployment rate has dropped gradually throughout 2012, to 7.7 percent in November from 8.3 percent in January. But that trend could change if small businesses are slammed by higher taxes in 2013. As the country is about to barrel over the fiscal cliff in a hot-rod Lincoln, those seeking tax increases should realize that small business is locked in the trunk. Guest Editorial The Orange County Register DEAR DOCTOR K: My young granddaughter has juvenile rheumatoid arthritis. I worry about the effects of the powerful medications she has to take. DEAR READER: Modern medicine has created real miracles. We have been smart enough to create treatments that relieve suffering and prevent premature death beyond what was previously possible. But we are not yet smart enough to create tests and treatments that are free of side effects. The treatment of arthritis, in adults and in children like your granddaughter, is an example. Powerfully effective treatments are available today that were not available in the past. Your granddaughter’s suffering has a better chance of being relieved than ever before.

It’s the spending, stupid! Listening to progressive media pundits, I’d think the most evil man in the universe is Grover Norquist, head of Americans for Tax Reform. His crime? He heads a movement that asks political candidates to pledge not to raise taxes. I think Grover accomplished a lot. But I wish he’d convinced politicians to pledge not to increase spending. President Obama says raising taxes to cut the deficit is a “balanced” approach. Balanced ... But what’s “balanced” about raising taxes after vast



But you’re also right to worry: Medications used to treat juvenile rheumatoid arthritis can cause serious problems. That’s why treating children with this condition is a delicate balance. It’s true the treatment can cause immediate side effects and there can be long-term risks. However, doctors want to do everything they can to promptly relieve their young patients’ suffering and to protect



increases in spending? Trillions for war, Medicare, “stimulus” and solar panels. Tax receipts rose — after tax-rate cuts — from $1.9 billion in 2003 to $2.3 billion in 2008, the year the recession started. That increase couldn’t keep

them against long-term bone damage. With juvenile rheumatoid arthritis, the lining of the joint becomes inflamed and enlarged, limiting movement and causing pain and tenderness. Enzymes released by the inflamed membranes erode the bone and cartilage. This joint and bone damage can cause problems in a growing child; bones may develop abnormally in shape or size. Medications help to control inflammation to stop further joint damage. They also control pain and inflammation. Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) are usually the first medications used to relieve joint inflammation. But NSAIDs can cause ulcers. COX-2 inhibitors may be safer for the

up with the spending. The deficit doubled — actually, more than doubled — as politicians increased spending to nearly $4 trillion! Our debt, at more than $16 trillion, now exceeds our gross domestic product. Ludicrous, irresponsible spending is why we’re in trouble.

But instead of increasing government spend-

But they can cause weakened bones, increased susceptibility to infections and stunted growth. They usually are prescribed for only a short time. Drugs known as DMARDs often provide relief if other medications have failed. The most widely used is methotrexate. These drugs can cause liver damage or other complications. Doctors carefully monitor children taking DMARDs. Over the past 30 years, medical scientists have made major advances in understanding the chemical signals that cause inflammation, called cytokines.

ing in line with normal inflation, under Bush and Obama we are spending $3.8 trillion today. Democrats, who believe we have a ‘revenue’ problem instead of a ‘spending’ problem, must also think they have a bartender problem, not a drinking problem.” The media obsess about tax rates, but spending is more important. As Milton Friedman taught us, spending is a far more accurate gauge of the government burden. If government spends a dollar, that

dollar is taxed away from someone. If it’s borrowed, it’s removed from productive use, setting the stage for higher taxes later. If the government prints more dollars to fund spending, our purchasing power falls. Transferring purchasing power from the people to the government via inflation is a form of taxation. If Republicans and Democrats reach a deal, the tax increases will be real — but spending “cuts” probably illusions. If they actually happen, they will only be reductions in already planned increases. The Wall Street Journal notes that when the two parties talk about cutting spending by $4 trillion over a decade, “those numbers have no real meaning because they are conjured in the wilderness of mirrors that is the federal budget process. Since 1974, Capitol Hill’s ‘baseline’ has automatically increased spending every year according to Congressional Budget Office projections ... Tax and spending changes are then measured off that inflated baseline.” Given our growing debt, can’t they even slow the growth of government to the rate of inflation? Or inflation plus 1 percent? Or even inflation plus 2 percent? That might balance the budget within a decade. But the spenders won’t even give me that. They want more. Always more. Jonathan Bydlak, founder of the Coalition to Reduce Spending, has a good idea. “It’s important to do for spending what Norquist has done for taxes: create a means for voters to hold

elected officials accountable when they break campaign promises of fiscal responsibility.” Bydlak has no time for any politician who pledges not to raise taxes without pledging to cut spending. He praises Doug Collins, representative-elect from Georgia, and Ted Cruz, senator -elect from Texas, for signing the Reject the Debt pledge and thereby promising voters they would: “ONE, not vote for any budget that is not balanced nor for any appropriations bill that increases total spending; “and TWO, consider all spending open for reduction, and not vote to authorize or fund new programs without offsetting cuts in other programs.” Well, sure. Good luck to him. But people are reluctant to give up their favorite programs. Or any programs. Let’s not fool ourselves about how dependent politicians have made people on government. To succeed, the crusade to cut spending needs an ideological understanding of how unsustainable our current course is, not just a narrow appeal to short-term self-interest. People will have to see the wisdom of giving up government benefits now — in exchange for something more abstract: a future free society in which our children won’t be burdened by debt and taxes.

Possible Hagel pick raises Robert H. Bork dead at 85 concerns in Senate GOP

AP Photo

Former Sen. Chuck Hagel

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama’s possible pick of Republican Chuck Hagel to run the Pentagon raises serious concer ns among some of his former Senate colleagues, who question his pronouncements on Iraq, Israel and the Middle East. The reservations publicly expressed by a few Republicans and even a Democrat hardly rival the unyielding GOP objections to U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice, who withdrew from consideration last week for secretary of state in the face of relentless attacks, mostly over her public statements about the Sept. 11 assault on the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya. But opposition was growing among Senate Republicans who held their weekly, closed-door meeting on Wednesday. Lawmakers harbor real doubts about whether Hagel is sufficiently supportive of Israel, the U.S.’s closest Mideast ally, based on his remarks. “When he served here, he was willing to step on a lot of toes and I think some of those toes that he pinched are screaming right now,” said Sen. Claire McCaskill, D-Mo. “But we’ll see how it goes along. It depends a lot on how much his Republican colleagues are going to cause problems for him.” As for the Democrats, “I haven’t heard people really concerned,” she said. “We have an awful lot of respect for his resume.” Hagel, 66, served 12 years in the Senate where he nurtured a reputation for moderation and independence, initially backing the Iraq War and then challenging President George W. Bush’s policies. The decorated Vietnam War veteran broke with Bush and fellow Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., over sending an additional 30,000 troops into Iraq. Hagel called it “the most dangerous foreign

A memorial service will be held for Robert Allan Nurmi, 82, of Roswell, at 11:30 a.m., Saturday, Dec. 22, 2012, at South Park Cemetery with Bishop Hank Malcom officiating.

policy blunder in this country since Vietnam, if it’s carried out.” Yet, the so-called troop surge was credited with stabilizing the chaotic, war -tor n country. McCain was steadfast in his opposition to Rice and vowed to block her selection even before a nomination was made. The senator indicated Wednesday that he was holding off on any final decision about the former Nebraska lawmaker, Hagel. “I’ve known Chuck for many years, I respect his views,” McCain said. “Obviously we’ve had some different views on the surge. All these things will be talked about if he’s nominated. There’s no reason for me to make any judgments. He served his country with honor in Vietnam.” No senator is threatening to block Hagel’s confir mation if it comes before the full Senate despite complaints from outside groups. Democrats have the votes to confirm him and would be reluctant to embarrass and weaken Obama at the start of his second term by joining Republicans to scuttle Hagel, especially after the Rice imbroglio. At the moment, Hagel remains the primary candidate for defense secretary and is being screened for the position, but his selection is not a done deal. He would succeed Leon Panetta, who has made it clear without announcing a date, that he intends to step down early next year. Troubling for some lawmakers are Hagel’s comments and actions on Israel, including his reference to the “Jewish lobby” in the United States. “That comment is inappropriate,” McCain said. “There’s no such thing as a Jewish lobby. There’s an Ar menian lobby, there’s not a Jewish lobby. There’s an Israeli lobby. It’s called AIPAC, very influential.” Hagel has favored diplomacy over military action with Iran, and criticized talk of a military strike by either the United States or Israel against Iran. Opponents have pointed to his votes against sanctions on Iran and circulated letters that Hagel signed and ones he declined to add his name to, many of those favored by the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, the powerful pro-Israel lobby. In August 2006, Hagel refused to sign a

He furthered his education by achieving a master’s in sociology and was a substitute teacher for many years while in the National Guard. Robert and his wife Marylee sold their home in Hurricane, Utah, and purchased a recreational vehicle to live and travel most states from 1996 to 2010, and really enjoyed those years. Robert is survived by his wife Marylee Nurmi of the home; his daughters, Lou Ann and her husband Roger Manemann, and Kathy White, of Roswell, and Kristine and her husband Terry Percy, of Firestone, Colo.; six grandchildren, and 12 great-grandchildren.

letter pressing the European Union to declare Hezbollah a terrorist organization, one of 12 senators who balked. In 2007, he sent a letter to Bush urging talks with Iran. Proponents counter by pointing to Senate votes for U.S. aid to Israel and his backing for sanctions on Iran. “The appointment of Chuck Hagel would be a slap in the face for every American who is concerned about the safety of Israel,” said Matt Brooks, executive director of the Republican Jewish Coalition. In an interview with Aaron David Miller for his 2008 book, “The Much Too Promised Land: America’s Elusive Search for Arab-Israeli Peace,” Hagel said, “I’m not an Israeli senator. I’m a United States senator. I support Israel, but my first interest is I take an oath of office to the Constitution of the United States, not to a president, not to a party, not to Israel. If I go run for Senate in Israel, I’ll do that.” Democratic Sen. Barbara Boxer of California, a member of the Foreign Relations Committee, said Hagel was a “very good colleague to work with,” but added that “I have disagreements with him on a number of issues. But let’s wait and see if he’s nominated and then we’ll get to those questions.” Republican Sen. Susan Collins of Maine, who was elected in 1996, the same year as Hagel, said his comments “on Israel, Hamas and Iran do deserve explanation at a nomination hearing and I’m sure that would happen. He’s well known to many of us, but I think those issues are ones that are likely to come up and should come up.” Sen. Bob Corker of Tennessee, who is in line to become the top Republican on the Foreign Relations Committee, said he served with Hagel for two years but was reserving judgment. At least two other candidates remain under serious consideration — former top Pentagon official Michele Flournoy and Deputy Defense Secretary Ashton Carter. At least two or three other candidates are being discussed at the White House to a lesser degree, according to a senior administration official who spoke on condition of anonymity because the White House does not comment on Obama’s personnel deliberations.

U.S. Supreme Court nominee Robert H. Bork testifies before the Senate Judiciary Committee during his confirmation hearings on Capitol Hill, Sept 16, 1987.

MCLEAN, Va. (AP) — Robert H. Bork, who stepped in to fire the Watergate prosecutor at Richard Nixon’s behest and whose failed 1987 nomination to the Supreme Court helped draw the modern boundaries of cultural fights over abortion, civil rights and other issues, has died. He was 85. Robert H. Bork Jr. confirmed his father died Wednesday at Virginia Hospital Center in Arlington, Va. The son said Bork died from complications of heart ailments. Brilliant, blunt and piercingly witty, Robert Heron Bork had a long career in the law that took him from respected academic to a totem of conservative grievance. Along the way, Bork was accused of being a partisan hatchet man for Nixon when, as the third-ranking official at the Justice Department, he fired Watergate special prosecutor Archibald Cox in the Saturday Night Massacre of 1973. Attorney General Elliot Richardson had resigned rather than fire Cox. The next in line, William Ruckelshaus, refused to fire Cox and was himself fired. Bork’s drubbing during his Senate nomination hearings made him a hero to the right and a rallying cry for younger conservatives. The Senate experience embittered Bork and hardened many of his conservative positions, even as it gave him prominence as an author and long popularity on the conservative speaking circuit. Conservative legal scholars lauded Bork as an intellectual leader of the move toward originalism, which calls for the Constitution to be interpreted as it was envisioned by the Founding Fathers. Eugene Meyer, president of The Federalist Society, where Bork co-chaired the board of visitors, described Bork as “a truly kind and decent man” who helped mentor a generation of conservative law professors and practitioners. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia called his former appeals court colleague “one of the most influential legal scholars of the past 50 years. His impact on legal thinking in the fields of antitrust and constitutional law was profound and lasting.” Known before his Supreme Court nomination as one of the foremost national experts on antitrust law, Bork became

much more widely known as a conservative cultural critic in the years that followed. Bork was a judge on the nation’s most prestigious appellate panel, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit, from 1982 until 1988, when he resigned in the wake of the bitter Supreme Court nomination fight. Earlier, Bork had been a private attorney, Yale Law School professor and a Republican political appointee. Nixon named Bork as solicitor general, the administration’s advocate before the Supreme Court, in January 1973. Bork served as acting attorney general after Richardson’s resignation, then returned to the solicitor general’s job until 1977, far outlasting the Nixon administration. Long mentioned as a possible Supreme Court nominee, Bork got his chance toward the end of Ronald Reagan’s second term. He was nominated July 1, 1987, to fill the seat vacated by Justice Lewis F. Powell. Nearly four months later the Senate voted 58-42 to defeat him, after the first national political and lobbying offensive mounted against a judicial nominee. It was the largest negative vote ever recorded for a Supreme Court nominee. Reagan and Bork’s Senate backers called him eminently qualified — a brilliant judge who had managed to write nearly a quarter of his court’s majority rulings in just five years on the bench without once being overturned by the Supreme Court. In a written statement Wednesday, Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, who voted to confirm Bork, called him “a true lion of the law.” Sen. Edward Kennedy, D-Mass., summed up the opposition at the time by saying, “In Robert Bork’s America there is no room at the inn for blacks and no place in the Constitution for women.” Critics also called Bork a free-speech censor and a danger to the principle of separation of church and state. Bork’s opponents used his prolific writings against him, and some called him a hypocrite when he seemed to waffle on previous strongly worded positions. Despite a reputation for personal charm, Bork did not play well on television. He answered questions in a seemingly bloodless, academic style and he cut a severe figure, with hooded eyes and heavy, rustic beard. Stoic and stubborn throughout, Bork refused to withdraw when his defeat seemed assured. The fight has defined every high-profile judicial nomination since, and largely established the opposing roles of vocal and well-funded interest groups in Senate nomination fights. Bork would say later that the ferocity of the fight took him and the Reagan White House by surprise, and he rebuked the administration for not doing more to salvage his nomination. The process begat a verb, “to bork,” meaning vilification of a nominee on ideological grounds.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) ##### Make plans to bring friends together before you exit the scene for a family holiday gathering. You will be, or probably already are, in the

Sirius XM Radio promotes Meyer to interim CEO

NEW YORK (AP) — Satellite radio company Sirius XM Radio named one of its executives, James Meyer, as its interim CEO while it looks for a replacement for Mel Karmazin. The New York company, which Liberty Media Corp. is seeking to take over, said Wednesday that its search committee is looking at candidates from within the company, including Meyer, as well as outside the company to fill the CEO post on a permanent basis. Liberty CEO Greg Maffei is leading Sirius’ CEO search committee. Meyer, the president of sales and operations, is also joining the board. Karmazin had been CEO since 2004, overseeing the 2008 merger between Sirius and its rival, XM Satellite Radio and then leading the combined company. Sirius XM Radio Inc. announced in October that he planned to

step down as CEO and a board member. There had long been speculation he would leave because of the expected takeover by Liberty Media. Liberty rescued Sirius XM from bankruptcy in 2009 with $530 million in exchange for a 40-percent equity stake. Liberty has been buying shares for months in its quest for a controlling stake in the company. The Federal Communications Commission must approve Liberty’s takeover.

Tonight: You can have the best of both worlds. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19) ### You might be uptight about a domestic or personal matter. Accept what is, and choose not to push to have your way.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) ### Run out the door if you must for some lastminute holiday items or gifts. You might feel as if you want to indulge a loved one more. You don't need to drop all of those gifts on this person immediately. After all, you do not want to make this person feel uncomfortable. Tonight: Out late.

LAS CRUCES (AP) — Kendall Williams tied a career high with 24 points, including nine during a first-half run that brought New Mexico back from a double-digit deficit, and the No. 16 Lobos beat rival New Mexico State for the second time in a week with a 68-63 win Wednesday night. Tony Snell added 11 points for


New Mexico (12-0), which matched the second-best start in school history. The Aggies (5-6) went on a 16-4 run that included four 3-pointers to build a 25-14 lead, but then Williams took over, scoring seven straight points to key an 11-0 run that tied it at 25 with 4:35 left in the first half.

Berrendo takes 8th-grade title

New Orleans at L.A. Clippers, late


COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — Chiney Ogwumike has been in plenty of close games for Stanford. She’s also got confidence that the top-ranked Cardinal know exactly what to do when pressed to the limit as they were at South Carolina on Wednesday night. Ogwumike had 21 points and 15 rebounds, Mikaela Ruef hit a tiebreaking layup with 53 seconds left and Toni Kokenis hit six foul shots down the stretch as No. 1 Stanford beat the 21st-ranked Gamecocks 53-49 to match the best start in school history at 100. “We had a target on our back tonight and that’s one of the things we have to expect when we come to games like this,” Ogwumike said. South Carolina (10-1) gave Stanford all it could handle at the raucous Colonial Life Arena, where more than 8,000 fans screamed with each possession. The arena erupted when Sancheon White’s jumper gave South Carolina its final lead 44-42 with 2:32 remaining. Ogwumike answered with a go-ahead three-point play and the Gamecocks tied it up on Aleighsa Welch’s foul shot. That’s when Ruef drove left and threw up a shot that barely scraped over the rim and fell in to put Stanford ahead to stay. The Gamecocks pulled to 51-49 on Ieasia Walker’s 3-pointer with 3 seconds left, but Kokenis added two final foul shots to ice things. “I’m really proud of our team, how Toni and Chiney really stayed with things,” Stanford coach Tara VanDerveer said. “You’re in a very hostile environment, great crowd, great atmosphere.” Not that it was pretty. Stanford had a seasonhigh 18 turnovers, shot 40 percent and were held 25 points below their season average the first nine games. Still, it’s a win and the third time in program history — all under VanDerveer — its started 10-0. The last time came in the 1991-92 season. Ogwumike had her eighth game with double figure points and rebounds this season. But she said it was the little things like Ruef’s driving basket and Kokenis’ perfect foul shooting that won the game.

Bryant to make call on finger

IRVING, Texas (AP) — The Dallas Cowboys could not trust receiver Dez Bryant to even run the right routes less than two months ago. Now they’re letting him dictate whether he plays with a broken left index finger. They are also drawing inspiration from Bryant’s insistence on waiting until after the season for a surgery serious enough for owner Jerry Jones to startle his emerging star by mistakenly saying it would involve taking bone from his hip. “Finding a way to play shows a lot of toughness because that’s not easy to do,” said tight end Jason Witten, who would know because he once ran 30 yards downfield without a helmet before getting tackled and played in the openSee CALL, Page B2

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — On almost a daily basis, John Fox needs about as little time to roll through the Broncos injury report as it takes cornerback Chris Harris to return an interception 98 yards for a touchdown. In a league where injuries can make or break a team’s season, it’s Denver’s lack of them, along with its ability to replace the few players who do go out, that has turned the Broncos into legitimate Super Bowl contenders with a nine-game winning streak. Led by starting-caliber performances from Harris and running back Knowshon Moreno, Denver (11-3) heads into the final stretch of the season looking pretty much the way the front office envisioned the roster on opening day. “All in all, I’d say our perSee KEY, Page B2

er this season with a lacerated spleen. “He earned my respect.” Bryant broke the finger on a catch against Cincinnati two weeks ago. He scored a critical touchdown in the 20-19 win after the injury and made it clear early last week that he would play against Pittsburgh. Playing with a padded glove that exposed the tip of the broken finger, Bryant looked like a decoy in the first quarter because Tony Romo kept throwing to Miles Austin, but he still scored a touchdown for the sixth straight game — catching a ball away from his body, fingers first — and finished with four catches for 59 yards. The Cowboys (8-6) beat the Steelers 27-24 in overtime last weekend and emerged with control of their playoff hopes. Dallas moves on with wins over New Orleans (6-8) at home on Sunday and at Washington in the finale. “I just wanted to be out there and I felt like I needed to,” Bryant said. “Miles came up to me and said, ‘We’re all really inspired by you playing.’ I can tell from the guys that it meant a lot.”

sonnel department’s done an outstanding job,” Fox said. “You try to pick your best 53 and have confidence that all of them can play when called upon.” Moreno ran for 118 yards on 22 carries against the Ravens last Sunday. He has rushed for 391 yards since filling in for one of Denver’s few injured stars, Willis McGahee, who went down with a knee injury on Nov. 18. On the other side of the ball, Harris had the longest interception return for a touchdown in Denver’s regular-season history on Sunday. His 98-yard return down the sideline was his second score this year. Both have come since he

Seven weeks earlier — in that same locker room — Bryant had to acknowledge that his routerunning wasn’t precise enough, and that it cost Romo one of four interceptions in a 29-24 loss to the New York Giants. He also botched a punt return so badly that coach Jason Garrett took those duties away from him. Bryant did have 110 yards receiving that day — a season high at the time — and made a spectacular catch that appeared to win the game in the final seconds. But a replay showed that his fingers came down first out of bounds, so he still had just two touchdowns through seven games. The third-year pro was on his way to another mediocre season, and still didn’t know whether Dallas County prosecutors would pursue family violence charges against him over an altercation with his mother during the summer. That incident came after his first two years were marred by lawsuits over unpaid bills for tickets and jewelry and a scene at the mall for wearing sagging pants. Just as his career-best touchdown streak started, though, Bryant got word that a deal had been reached that could lead to dismissal of the family violence charges. He celebrated by having

replaced Tracy Porter at cornerback opposite Champ Bailey. “He’s a tough cover guy in practice, whether he’s going against (Brandon) Stokley, (Eric) Decker, or (Demaryius) Thomas, it’s been that way all season,” said Peyton Manning, whose own health, top on Denver’s list of preseason concerns, has held up so far this year. “With our secondary, there have been some good challenges.” Moreno was a first-round draft pick who lost his job and was working on the scout team as recently as four weeks ago. Harris was an undrafted free agent from Kansas.

the same career high in receiving yardage twice — 145 against Cleveland and Washington. With eight touchdowns in six games, Bryant now has 10 scores. “I’m proud of him,” Witten said. “You talk about him dealing with all the stuff he’s dealt with the three years he’s been here. He’s almost like a little brother. You keep offering him support and encouragement. He’s a good kid. It kind of seemed like he’s put it all behind him.” Jones, ever the optimist, has been guarded as Bryant kept stringing together good games. He gushed about the receiver after beating the Steelers, but scared Bryant a little by offering the possibility of a bone graft involving Bryant’s hip (“You’re not touching my hip,” Bryant told reporters Sunday after hearing the Jones diagnosis). Turns out Jones just misunderstood the doctors. The bone will come from the hand. But Jones’ point was clear: the injury is serious. “He certainly is playing with some risks, but he was inspirational out there to everybody involved in the organization,” Jones said. “He meant it because we were still playing for all the marbles, and he wanted to give everything he could.”

ing patient with the players they have and keeping a sharp eye on who’s available in the free agent market, the Broncos haven’t gone backward on the few occasions when they’ve lost starters. “There’s never a week you can let up, never a day you can ease up,” said the team’s leading tackler, Wesley Woodyard, whose linebacker position has endured the most flux this year, with an injury to Joe Mays and the nine-game suspension of D.J. Williams. Woodyard said having depth isn’t only a help when players go down. “You’ve always got to be at your best because the guy behind you is just as good as you, and everyone wants to be in there,” he said. “They can make plays,

too. You’ve got to be focused and be on your game every week.” Nobody personified that idea better than Moreno. The fourth-year veteran was relegated to the scout team, set back by the lingering effects of a knee injury and a lost fumble during Week 2, which sent him to the bottom of the depth chart. Only when McGahee got injured did Moreno get another chance. Growing more confident with each week he’s in the lineup, Moreno is finding and moving toward the holes more quickly. Last week, he had his second straight 100-yard game, the highlight of which came when he hurdled Ravens safety Ed Reed. “Just being prepared and working,” Moreno said when asked how he han-

It was just having faith that maybe down the road I’d get my chance again.” Harris was also just a guy looking for a chance. A starter for most of his four years at Kansas, he spent three long days during the draft and his phone never rang. Only when the draft was over did he get a call from the Broncos, asking him to come to camp as a free agent. He was a long shot to make the roster, but quickly showed he can play.

Buffalo Bills spokesman Scott Berchtold declined to comment on the talks. Earlier Wednesday, Chief Executive Russ Brandon told WGR radio that “we’re making progress.” Though the franchise’s future in Buffalo is uncertain once 94-year-old owner Ralph Wilson dies, team officials have maintained their commitment to staying in Buffalo and continuing to play at Ralph Wilson Stadium in Orchard Park. The biggest obstacle in negotiations has been determining how to divide up the costs for $200 million in renovations and upgrades the Bills are seeking to have done to the 39year-old facility.

BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) — Erie County Executive Mark Poloncarz said Wednesday that progress is being made in lease negotiations between the county, state and Buffalo Bills to keep the team at Ralph Wilson Stadium. The talks, the latest of which took place Tuesday, have picked up in recent weeks, Poloncarz said, after slowing while state officials dealt with the preparation and aftermath of Superstorm Sandy, which devastated parts of the East Coast in October. “We’ve made plenty of progress. It’s a very complicated deal,” Poloncarz said. He declined to discuss details or say when an agreement might be reached. The Bills’ current lease expires July 31. The Bills and county officials earlier this year raised the idea of extending the current agreement by one year amid concerns about the pace of negotiations. Poloncarz initially said he hoped a deal in principal would be reached by the time the Bills opened training camp this past July. “We are certainly talking about everything but I think we all agree it makes more sense to get a long-term deal done than negotiate a one-year deal and then in six months have to pick it back up again,” he said by phone Wednesday.

A clever idea! Although experts recommend washing bedsheets and pillowcases once a week to help decrease the allergens in your home, two weeks should be just fine, since in your case, you are sleeping on the “clean” side.

Then, by fitting a water “noodle” in the gap between the doggie door and the screen door, we were able to handle both problems. The noodle can be cut easily with a serrated knife.

Armored backpacks and a rush on guns after Conn.

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — The reaction to the Connecticut school shooting can be seen in gun stores and self-defense retailers across the nation: Anxious parents are fueling sales of ar mored backpacks for children while firear ms enthusiasts are stocking up on assault rifles in anticipation of tighter gun control measures. A spike in gun sales is common after a mass shooting, but the Connecticut tragedy has generated record sales in many states. Colorado set a single-day record for gun background check requests the day after the Connecticut mass shootings, and some online retailers are removing assault rifles from websites in part because of

diminishing supplies. saw more Nevada requests for background checks in the days after the shooting than any other weekend this year. Some gun shop owners are even holding back on sales, anticipating only more interest and value after President Barack Obama on Wednesday tasked his administration with creating concrete proposals to reduce gun violence. Robert Akers, a Rapid City, S.D., gun seller specializing in assault-style rifles, said he has about 50 of the weapons in stock but he’s not actively trying to sell them and has even turned off his phone. At least three companies that make armored backpacks designed to shield

When there is a shooting, you run for your life,” he said. “Having it right there and on when he runs for his life gives him more safety.” Elmar Uy, vice president of operations at Bullet Blocker, a Massachusettsbased company that has sold the backpack armor since 2007, says the company’s sales have tripled since last week. At Amendment II in Salt Lake City, sales of children’s backpacks and ar mored inserts are up 300 percent.

children caught in a shooting also are reporting a large spike in sales and interest. The body armor inserts fit into the back panel of a child’s backpack, and they sell for about $150 to $300, depending on the company. The armor is designed to stop bullets from handguns, not assault rifles like the one used by the Connecticut shooter. The manufacturers and some parents say that while they don’t guarantee children won’t be killed, they could still be used as shields. Though Larson knows the backpack won’t guarantee his son’s safety when he starts school, he says it’s a worthy precaution. “Kids already carry

company intends to focus on commercial and packaging printing. It sees home photo printers, high-speed commercial inkjet presses, software and packaging as the core of its business as it emerges from bankruptcy. Kodak began mining its patent portfolio for license revenue in 2008. In January 2010, it sued Apple and RIM, saying that smartphone makers infringed its patent for technology that lets a camera preview lowresolution versions of a moving image while recording still images at higher resolutions. But by July 2011, it was trying to sell its 1,100 digital imaging patents. Analysts initially thought the portfolio could fetch between $2 billion and $3 billion. But Kodak struggled to find a buyer. Kodak will keep ownership of about 9,600 patents, focused mostly on commercial imaging and printing technologies.

Inc. are among the 12 companies paying to license the 1,100 patents, according to court filings. Patents have become very valuable to digital device makers, who want to protect themselves from intellectual property lawsuits. But Kodak, which has been trying to make the sale happen for more than a year, wound up receiving substantially less money than had been expected.

Rochester, N.Y.-based Eastman Kodak Co. said Wednesday that the patent sale will help it repay a substantial amount of a loan it received under the bankruptcy process. It also satisfies a key condition of a new, cheaper $830 million loan package, which required that the patents be sold for at least $500 million. Founded in 1880, Kodak filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in January after a long struggle to stay relevant. First came competition from Japanese companies, then the shift from film to digital photography over the past decade. Kodak failed to keep up. The once-mighty company, whose workforce peaked at 145,300 in 1988, said at the end of September that it expected to wind up with 13,100 employees after another round of job cuts. Since filing for bankruptcy protection, Kodak has sold off several businesses, such as its online photo service, and said it would shut down other divisions, including the manufacturing of digital cameras.

NEW YORK (AP) — Internet advertising hit a new high in the third quarter as marketers continued to shift money from print and broadcasting. The $9.3 billion spent on Internet ads from July through September is an 18 percent increase from $7.8 billion at the same time last year, according to a breakdown released Wednesday by the accounting firm PricewaterhouseCoopers and the Internet Advertising Bureau, a trade group. The third-quarter total marks the highest ad volume for any three-month period since 1995, when online marketing first began to move to the Web. Another record is expected in the current quarter ending this month. Internet advertising more than doubles the amount in U.S. newspapers’ print advertising, which totaled $4.5 billion in the third quarter, according to the industry’s own figures. The upheaval has been driven by the growing number of people who rely on computers and mobile devices to get information on the Internet. The increasing number of Internet ads helps subsidize many free online services, including search, email and social networking. Google Inc., the Internet’s search leader, has been the biggest beneficiary of the online ad boom so far. Other major sellers of online ads include Yahoo Inc., Facebook Inc., Microsoft Corp. and AOL Inc. Despite its steady growth, the Internet still lags well behind television as the most popular marketing machine. Through the first half of this year, U.S television advertising revenue approached nearly $35 billion, up 6 percent from last year, according to the most recent data from the trade group TVB. TV stations enjoyed another prosperous period in the third quarter as money poured in from political campaigns heading into November’s elections.

Full-go for Redskins’ RG3, bad haircut for Cousins Roswell Daily Record

ASHBURN, Va. (AP) — Robert Griffin III had a full practice and looked pretty good. Kirk Cousins had a full haircut that looked so bad he had to apologize for it. The Washington Redskins quarterbacks were back to their regular pecking order Wednesday. Griffin went through a regular full practice with first-team receivers for the first time since spraining his right knee, while Cousins was an affable undercard whose hilariously hairy moment was more interesting than anything he had to say about football. Griffin said he ran plays at full-speed, hoping to persuade doctors to clear him for this week’s game against the Philadelphia Eagles. He has made known his unhappiness over sitting out Sunday’s win over the Cleveland Browns, and he’s clearly frustrated that the final say is out of his control. “I’m ready to play whenever they want me to play,” Griffin said. “So if it’s this week, next week, next couple of weeks. Whatever they say goes, so I’ll be ready.” Coach Mike Shanahan said doctors will see how Griffin’s knee responds to the practice, particularly as to whether there’s any swelling when the rookie shows up at work Thursday. “Hopefully they’ll look at it tomorrow and tell us it is full-go,” Shanahan said. Still, the signs are much more positive for Griffin than last week, when the Redskins sent out mixed signals in an effort to the keep Browns guessing. Griffin moved relatively well during the portions of practice open to reporters throughout the week, but then Cousins would take the first-team snaps once the session was closed. Wednesday didn’t have the same smokescreen feel. After playing decoy for a week, Griffin talked about throwing passes to receiver Pierre Garcon with an arm that was “a little bit more juiced up and ready to go.” Griffin said his relationship with Shanahan hasn’t been strained by having to sit out a game — and that it was important not to let personal emotions bring down the team. “You don’t take those things to the field

and try to become a cancer or a distraction to the team,” Griffin said. “You support the team. ... You can be unhappy about something, but you’ve still got to learn, and that’s what I did. I was upset, but I never let that show on the field and just watched and was able to see it from a different perspective.” Griffin, the No. 2 overall draft pick and No. 2 in the league in passer rating, was hurt late in the fourth quarter of the win over the Baltimore Ravens on Dec. 9. Fellow rookie Cousins led the Redskins to victory in relief, then threw for 329 yards in the 38-21 victory over the Browns. The win (8-6) put the Redskins in control of their playoff fate. Their five-game winning streak has them tied with the Dallas Cowboys and New York Giants atop the NFC East, and Washington holds the tiebreaker over both clubs. The victory also gave Cousins a chance to bask in the glow of being a winning starting NFL quarterback. His run of fame continued Wednesday when he showed up for a session with reporters with his mop of hair gone, replaced by a close-cut ‘do that — from the eyebrows up — made him look at least 45 years old. “I have to apologize to my family and friends back home,” he said. “I think I’m embarrassing them. I try to represent them well, and my haircut’s not doing it.” He then explained that when he went to get a haircut on Monday, he had a “communication breakdown” with a female barber whose English wasn’t the best. She also took off his glasses, so he couldn’t see what she was doing. “She wheels me back around,” Cousins said. “I look at the mirror and I realized I had a Mohawk. So I tell her, ‘Just shave it off. I don’t know what to tell you.’ So she just buzzed it off, and I have to live with this for the next couple of weeks until it grows back. ... The tough thing was that I didn’t realize until that moment that I do have a receding hairline. That was tough to take. My dad is more-or-less completely bald, and I was hoping I wasn’t going to get his genes.”

Tebow ‘disappointed’ by Ryan choosing McElroy FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) — It all began as an intriguing idea, the thought of Tim Tebow running around as an exciting spark for the New York Jets’ offense. Then it all fizzled — before it really even started. Rex R yan acknowledged Wednesday that he had higher expectations for the seldomused Tebow in the Jets’ wildcat-style offense. And, so did the NFL’s most popular and maligned backup quarterback. “For some reason, it hasn’t panned out to my expectations and maybe Tim’s, either,” R yan said. “Defenses have attacked us a little differently. Maybe that’s a contributing factor to it.” R yan would not go into detail about why he chose Greg McElroy over Tebow to replace the struggling Mark Sanchez as the team’s starting quarterback with two games left in a lost season. He reiterated his comments from Tuesday that it was his decision — and his alone — saying it was a “gut” call. It was one that, predictably, didn’t sit well with Tebow. “Obviously, I’m a little disappointed,” he said. “You try to handle it the best you can.” Tebow paused for a second when asked if he felt passed over by Ryan choosing McElroy instead of him. “All you can ask for and all you want is a chance,” he said. “A chance to go out there and play the game you love, and help this team win football games. That’s all I wanted.”

Ryan didn’t consult with any players before making the call — other than to tell Sanchez after the Jets’ 14-10 loss to Tennessee on Monday night that he was out as the starter. The fact McElroy leapfrogged Tebow appears to be a clear indicator that the Jets think very little of Tebow as a quarterback, the player they traded a fourth-round draft pick to Denver for in March despite having just signed Sanchez to a big contract extension. “I think we had a vision of using Tim in different ways,” R yan said. “Obviously, we used him as a personal punt protector. I thought maybe we would use him in other ways or something.” As did Tebow. He has done his best to hide his frustration throughout the season, but it was clear Wednesday that he is unhappy. He spoke in a low tone, and the usually constant smiles were few and far between. He also shrugged his shoulders a few times at questions, almost struggling to say the right things without coming off as angry. Tebow was also asked point-blank whether he pictures himself being a member of the Jets next season. “I’ll just wait until the end of the season,” he said, “and look at everything then.” Tebow did say he has not asked to be traded after the season, but indicated that even he is a bit puzzled why the Jets brought him to New York.




Notice is hereby given that on January 16, 2013, at the hour of 11:30 am the undersigned Special Master, or his designee, will, at the west steps of the Chaves County Courthouse, at 400 N.
