Economy to pick up, but still vulnerable

WASHINGTON (AP) — The U.S. economy will grow faster in 2012 — if it isn’t knocked of f track by upheavals in Europe, according to an Associated Press survey of leading economists. Unemployment will barely fall from the current 8.6 percent rate, though, by the time President Barack Obama runs for re-election in November, the economists say. The three dozen private, corporate and academic economists expect the economy to grow 2.4 percent next year. In 2011, it likely grew less than 2 percent. The year is ending on an upswing. The economy has generated at least 100,000 new jobs for five months in a row — the longest such streak since 2006.

stopped and hiring could pick up. And the economy avoided a setback when President Barack Obama signed legislation Friday extending a Social Security tax cut that was to expire at year’s end. But Congress could agree only on a two-month extension. The economists surveyed Dec. 14-20 expect the country to create 177,000 jobs a month through Election Day 2012. That would be up from an average 132,000 jobs a month so far in 2011. Dean Maki, chief U.S. economist at Barclays Capital, says the U.S. economy remains vulnerable to an outside shock. A big threat is the risk that Europe’s debt crisis will trigger a worldwide credit freeze like the one that hit Wall Street

in late 2008. A shock to the U.S. economy, he says, might not be as dangerous if it were growing at a healthier 4 percent to 5 percent annual pace. But when growth is stuck at 2 percent or 3 percent, a major global crisis could stall job creation and raise unemployment. Beyond Europe, troubles in other areas could also upset the U.S. economy next year, the economists say. Congressional gridlock ahead of the 2012 elections and unforeseen global events, like this year’s Arab Spring protests, could slow the U.S. economy. Three economists said rising nuclear tensions with Iran are a concern. Even without an outside jolt, the economists expect

Lunar probes to study gravity field Man in LOS ANGELES (AP) — The moon has come a long way since Galileo first peered at it through a telescope. Unmanned probes have circled around it and landed on its surface. Twelve American astronauts have walked on it. And lunar rocks and soil have been hauled back from it. Despite being well studied, Earth’s closest neighbor remains an enigma. Over the New Year’s weekend, a pair of spacecraft the size of washing machines are set to enter orbit around it in the latest lunar mission. Their job is to measure the uneven gravity field and deter mine what lies beneath — straight down to the core. Since rocketing from the Florida coast in September, the near-identical Grail spacecraft have been independently traveling to their destination and will arrive 24 hours apart. Their paths are right on target, so engineers recently decided not to tweak their positions. “Both spacecraft have per for med essentially flawlessly since launch, but one can never take anything for granted in this business,” said mission chief scientist Maria Zuber of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

benefits has dropped to the

The nail-biting part is yet to come. On New Year’s Eve, one of the Grail probes — short for Gravity Recovery and Interior Laboratory — will fire its engine to slow down so that it could be captured into orbit. This move will be repeated by the other the following day. Engineers said the chances of the probes overshooting are slim since their trajectories have been precise. Getting struck by a cosmic ray may prevent the completion of the engine burn and they won’t get boosted into the right orbit. “I know I’m going to be nervous. I’m definitely a worrywart,” said project manager David Lehman of NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, which manages the $496 million, three-month mission. Once in orbit, the spacecraft will spend the next two months flying in for mation and chasing one another around the moon until they are about 35 miles above the surface with an average separation of 124 miles. Data collection won’t begin until March. Previous missions have attempted to measure lunar gravity with mixed success. Grail is the first mission dedicated to this goal. As the probes circle the

Radio signals transmitted by the spacecraft will measure the slight distance gaps, allowing researchers to map the underlying gravity field. Using the gravity information, scientists can deduce what’s below or at the lunar surface such as mountains and craters and may help explain why the far side of the moon is more rugged than the side that faces Earth. The probes are officially

Besides the one instrument on board, each spacecraft also carries a camera for educational purposes. Run by a company founded by Sally Ride, the first American woman in space, middle school students from participating schools can choose their own lunar targets to image during the mission.

A trip to the moon is typically relatively quick. It took Apollo astronauts three days to get there. Since Grail was launched from a relatively small rocket to save on costs, the jour ney took 3 1/2 months.

Scientists expect the mission to yield a bounty of new information about the moon, but don’t count on the U.S. sending astronauts back anytime soon. The Constellation program was canceled last year by President Barack Obama, who favors landing on an asteroid as a stepping stone to Mars.

Santa suit kills 6, self

GRAPEVINE, Texas (AP) — Police in a quiet Fort Worth suburb worked Monday to piece together a family history after a man dressed in a Santa Claus suit apparently shot six relatives and himself on Christmas. Grapevine police spokesman Sgt. Robert Eberling said the shooter showed up in the costume shortly before gunfire erupted and that the family appeared to have been opening Christmas presents. Police responding to a 911 call found four females and three males dead. They also found two handguns. “We think he was just inside there celebrating Christmas with the rest of them and decided for whatever reason that’s how he’s going to end things,” Eberling told The Associated Press. Investigators worked through Sunday night and into Monday mor ning, meticulously searching the apartment where the bodies were found, along with vehicles parked outside. Police said they believe the victims were related, though some were visiting and didn’t live in the apartment.

South Korean mourning delegation meets with late Kim Jong Il’s heir

PYONGYANG, North Korea (AP) — North Korea’s next leader burnished his diplomatic skills, welcoming a private South Korean mour ning delegation as state media called Kim Jong Un a “sagacious” leader and revealed a new title that gives him authority over political matters. Kim Jong Un has rapidly gained prominence since the death of his father, Kim Jong Il, on Dec. 17, and his brief meeting with a group led by a former South Korean first lady and a prominent business leader shows Seoul that he is assured in his new role. State media have showered Kim with new titles. On Saturday, the North referred to him as “supreme leader” of the 1.2 million-strong armed forces and said the military’s top leaders had pledged their loyalty to him. On Monday, the Rodong Sinmun newspaper described him as head of the Central Committee of the Workers’ Party — a post that appears to make him the top official in

the ruling party. Pyongyang’s official Korean Central News Agency also called Kim Jong Un a “sagacious leader” and “dear” comrade while reporting that he paid respects Monday to his father, whose body is lying in state at Kumsusan Memorial Palace. State media have already dubbed him as a “great successor” and an “outstanding leader.” It was the fourth time the North’s media reported that the younger Kim had visited the memorial palace since his father’s death, according to Seoul’s Unification Ministry. Also on Monday, a South Korean delegation stood in a line on a red carpet and bowed silently during their visit to the Kumsusan palace, where Kim’s bier is surrounded by flowers and flanked by an honor guard. Kim Jong Un gave the South Koreans his thanks after they expressed condolences and sympathy, KCNA said. Seoul’s Unification Ministry confirmed the

meeting in a statement but didn’t elaborate. The lead delegates were the widow of former South Korean President Kim Daejung, who engineered a “sunshine” engagement policy with the North and held a landmark summit with Kim Jong Il in 2000, and Hyundai Group Chairwoman Hyun Jeong-eun, whose late husband had ties to the North. Their meeting with Kim Jong Un could be intended to push South Korea to pursue previously agreed upon cooperative projects that would give North Korea much-needed hard currency, said Yang Moojin, a professor at Seoulbased University of North Korean Studies. Footage from AP Television News in North Korea earlier showed the South Koreans being greeted by North Korean officials during a stop at a factory park in the North Korean border town of Kaesong.

NM Medal of Honor winner gets sculpture A2 Tuesday, December 27, 2011

/SANTA FE (AP) — The man Santa Fe calls its hometown hero doesn’t get to spend much time here. But Army Sgt. 1st Class Leroy Petry’s smiling face and outstretched hand will permanently greet visitors and residents next year when a statue of the Medal of Honor winner is erected near City Hall. Petry — a 32-year -old who grew up in Santa Fe and who was awarded the honor this year for courage in battle in Afghanistan — made another whirlwind tour of Northern New Mexico recently, including a Dec. 20 appearance at the Boys & Girls Clubs of Santa Fe, a place where he spent lots of time as a child and where he says he got guidance that led him to a life of service. After he posed for dozens of photos with Santa Claus and spent time showing off his prosthetic hand to kids from the club, Petry made his way to the Pojoaque Pueblo studio of Gov. George Rivera. Rivera, a sculptor known for his larger -than-life

bronzes of Native Americans in traditional regalia, is thrilled to be working on a piece that represents another kind of warrior. Until Dec. 20, however, Rivera was working only from a series of photographs and videos and from stories told by his longtime friend Larry Petry, the soldier’s father. What he needed to bring the

sculpture to life, Rivera said, was the man himself. “Wow” was the first word out of Leroy Petry’s mouth when he saw the maquette, a tiny version of what will become an 8-foot-tall likeness of him in his Ar my Ranger uniform. “That’s pretty nice,” he said, grinning as he leaned in to inspect the laced-up boots made of clay. “Man,

look at the detail. I like it.” The project is already a collaboration: Pojoaque Pueblo is paying for the more than 700 pounds of clay required for the final version of the sculpture, along with the cost of casting it in bronze at the Shidoni foundry in Tesuque. Rivera is donating his time with help from Arizonaborn artist Ryan Benally, and the city of Santa Fe will hire a landscape architect and build the base that the final work will stand on. The idea, Rivera said, is to make the work interactive. Petry’s outstretched right hand — a state-of-the art robotic appendage that replaces the hand he lost when he was trying to throw a live grenade away from his fellow Rangers — will be made from polished stainless steel. Although the maquette that Rivera and Benally have been building for two months features Petry standing tall, with his feet together, the sculptors decided after the session to change his stance.

“I’m always half-step,” Petry said, explaining how he approaches each of the thousands of handshakes that have become part of his job as a liaison for returning servicemen and women. “It’s like I’m going to meet someone, I’m getting closer.” Rivera also asked photographers to capture all the details he’ll need to finish the job: the way Petry’s jacket wrinkles across his arm when he reaches for a hand, the precise position of his lapel in relation to the row of insignia on his chest, the rings he wears on his right hand. The expression on his face, however, Rivera will remember. He knew that he needed to make the clay smile look more like the one Petry regularly flashes. “I like the smile that he had when he saw the piece,” Rivera said. “His eyes were wide open.” Petry said it’s overwhelming when he pauses to think about all the recognition he’s received, including the latest plans for the statue in Santa Fe.

“At the same time, it’s pretty neat, especially to give the younger generation a role mode and something that they can look forward to, to know that they can achieve anything,” he said. “If you give everything your best, things just work out and have a way of happening.” People on the streets of Santa Fe are bound to recognize Petry when the sculpture is installed, said area resident Dina Rodriguez. She brought her two grandchildren to the Boys & Girls Club to meet him after hearing about the appearance on the radio. “I wanted (my grandchildren) to be able to meet him and recognize him. I told them who he was and what he had done,” she said. “We, all three of us, thanked him for his service, and we told him that we pray for all the men and women who are serving our country.”

NM ski areas welcome recent wave of winter storms ALBUQUERQUE (AP) — A steady stream of December storms has given New Mexico ski resorts some of the best early conditions in the country, and tourism officials are scurrying to make sure that translates into a banner season. “What we are trying to do is get the word out about how great the snow is,” said George Brooks, executive director of Ski New Mexico, which represents the state’s eight downhill and two crosscountry ski areas. Brooks said the association was working with the state Tourism Department to tout the excellent conditions, which had given most New Mexico ski resorts 40-plus-inch bases going into the Christmas

holiday. The state’s ski resorts can generally count on being full for Christmas regardless of how much snow is on the ground. But Brooks said publicity about the storms, as well as the fact that New Mexico resorts are starting the season with better bases than the usually more reliable early season mountains in Colorado and Utah, should translate into bookings that carry over into January and February. “We really needed this,” said Dave Dekema, marketing director for Angel Fire Resort, noting that last year “La Nina kept all the storms north of us and what we were getting was a lot of wind. All those resorts had a fantastic

Taxing online purchases

ALBUQUERQUE (AP) — A New Mexico lawmaker says one way to help the state pull itself out of a financial hardship is to tax online purchases. This year, $30 billion wasn’t spent in malls, it was spent online. New Mexico Rep. Eleanor Chavez of Bernalillo says some of that is tax money the state is losing out on. Chavez is one of several lawmakers who will be sponsoring legislation this upcoming session that will allow New Mexico to tax online retailers. Chavez told KOAT-TV that online purchases create unfair competition, so what lawmakers really want to do is level the playing field and at the same time help small businesses in the state.

opening.” Forecasts were for more of the same this year, but so far “we are 100 percent different than where we were sitting a year ago.” Two years ago was one of the best seasons for the industry since 2000-2001, Brooks said. But then the numbers “receded quite a bit. Last year was not a good year.” Adding to this year’s boon, he said, is that many of the storms have carried over to the Texas Panhandle, reminding the key Texas market the snow is falling in New Mexico. Dekema said the phones started ringing after the state got hit with its first big storm Dec. 4 and 5. “We had a huge spike after that,” he said. “And

Angel Fire got a foot in one day early last week with the blizzard that hit much of northeastern New Mexico. Taos Ski Valley has had more than 100 inches of snow this season, and Sandia Peak Ski Area at the edge of Albuquerque is off to a good start so early in the season with a 63inch base. Heading into the holiday weekend, another storm socked much of New Mexico and a few ski areas were again able to reap the benefits. Sandia was the big winner with 17 inches in a 24-hour period. Souther n New Mexico’s Ski Apache had 16 new inches and Parajito Mountain Ski Area near Los Alamos followed with 14.

Couple pays off layaway items for NM families

ALBUQUERQUE (AP) — A Secret Santa and Mrs. Claus have given a dozen military families in Albuquerque a very special Christmas gift by paying off layaway lists that included toys for children.

Marie Vigil, manager of the Kirtland Air Force Base’s store, told KOAT that a retired military couple who wanted to remain anonymous walked into the base’s stor e over the weekend and paid of f the lists of 12 families.

It’s a practice that has repeated itself across the country in recent weeks. Layaway programs allow customers to select merchandise and let the store hold onto it as they pay it of f slowly over several weeks. The Albuquerque store carries similar items to a department store, including clothing, electronics, childr en’s toys, housewares, cosmetics, luggage and furniture. Each family’s items ranged fr om $200 to $400, and the couple wrote each family a

note thanking t h e m f o r their military service. The notes were simply signed: Santa.

Vi g i l s a i d t h e c o u p l e told her that they don’t have children themselves, so “they wanted to be sur e that military children had a good Christmas.”

Vigil called the families with the good news, and Vigil said that several of them are passing the blessings along by using the money they saved to help others. Some of them

Taos teen arrested for killing his friend on Christmas TAOS (AP) — Taos police say they are holding a 19-year-old man accused of gunning down a friend who he thought was seeing his ex-girlfriend. Police say Charles Suskiewich of Arroyo Hondo drove to the 21-year -old man’s house in Taos early Christmas morning and shot the man multiple times. The vic-

tim’s name has not yet been released.

Police say the suspect and victim are believed to have been friends.

Suskiewich is being held without bond at the Taos County Adult Detention Center on charges of murder, tampering with evidence and possession of a stolen firearm.

also wrote “thank you” notes to the couple in case they ever go back to the store.

On top of paying for the layaway items, Vigil said that the couple walked up and down the aisles of the store and gave out money to families in need.

In all, Vigil estimates that the couple gave away at least $1,500. Vigil said that in her 20 years of retail she’s never seen such generosity.

Eberling said investigators were assembling a “family history,” and that the apartment was leased to a woman and her two children, one age 15 and the other either 19 or 20. He would not give other specifics. “We’re getting a clearer picture, but we’re not ready to go on the record with anything until we find out from the medical examiner absolute confir mation of identities and the manner of death,” Eberling said. Autopsies of the shooter and the victims were being done Monday by the Tarrant County medical examiner, but it would probably be Tuesday before their identities were released, he said. Roger Metcalf, a spokesman for the medical examiner’s office, said the victims have been tentatively identified, but the office couldn’t confir m the names because the state driver’s license

Late Sunday evening, police intently searched a sport utility vehicle parked outside the apartment. The vehicle is registered to a man who listed his residence as a home two miles away in the neighboring suburb of Colleyville. Thomas Ehrlich, who lives near the home in Colleyville, told the AP he heard from neighbors that police went to the house Sunday. He said he believed the man and woman who once lived there were estranged. Records show the couple had financial problems and that their home, most recently valued on the county tax rolls at $336,200, had been sold in 2010 at a foreclosure auction — although it appeared the man was still living there.

Fla. crash kills doctor, tech getting heart for transplant

MIAMI (AP) — A surgeon and technician from a Mayo Clinic in Florida flying across the northern corner of the state to retrieve a heart for transplant died Monday in a helicopter crash that also killed the pilot, officials said. The helicopter departed the clinic in Jacksonville around 5:45 a.m. but never arrived at the Gainesville hospital, Shands at University of Florida, about 60 miles to the southwest, said Kathy Barbour, a spokeswoman for Mayo, which is based in Rochester, Minn. Killed were heart surgeon Dr. Luis Bonilla, procurement technician David Hines and the pilot, whose name wasn’t released. The heart they were going to pick up could not be used in another transplant because its viability expired, and the patient who had been scheduled to receive it is waiting for a new organ, Mayo Clinic spokesman Layne Smith said. The helicopter went down about 12 miles northeast of Palatka, said Federal Aviation Administration spokeswoman Kathleen Bergen. The town is about 40 miles east of Gainesville and about 45 miles south of Jacksonville. Clay County Sheriff’s Office dispatcher Myron White confirmed the three dead but had no more information to release about the crash in the remote, densely forested area away from roads. The National Transportation Safety Board also was investigating. The National Weather Service in Jacksonville reported that there was light fog with overcast conditions in the area but no rain. “As we mourn this tragic event, we will remember the selfless and intense dedication they brought to making a difference in the lives of our patients,” John Noseworthy, Mayo Clinic president and chief executive officer, said in a statement. “We recognize the commitment transplant teams make every day in helping patients at Mayo Clinic and beyond. Our thoughts and prayers are with the families.” The wreckage was spotted around noon by another helicopter, said sheriff’s Lt. Russ Burke. Debris was scattered around the crash site, which was hidden from the road by rows of pine trees. FAA records show the Bell 206 helicopter is operated by SK Jets. The St. Augustine company released a statement: “The focus of our efforts at this time is to attend to the needs of our passengers, crew and their families and work with the NTSB and local public safety officials to determine the cause and extent of the accident.” Gary Robb, a Kansas City aviation attorney specializing in helicopter safety, said SK Jets is known as a careful and safe operator in the industry. The small, lightweight craft has low weight and speed capabilities and is primarily used by traffic reporters or police departments, Robb said. “It’s not usually used in donor flights,” he said. “If you’re on a mission where time is sensitive, why use an engine that is low performance?” Robb said, adding that the helicopter has a cramped cabin. An NTSB investigator will scour the crash site for clues and look into the pilot’s experience and any factors that might have impaired the pilot, any environmental factors such as birds or low visibility that may have contributed to the crash, and any mechanical problems with the helicopter, he said. “We’ve seen a number of instances where that engine simply failed,” Robb said. Doctors ultimately got another set of donor lungs that were transplanted into the patient.

Police and firefighters rushed to the Lincoln Vineyards complex about 11:30 a.m. after receiving a 911 call in which no one was on the other end of the line. Because no one responded on the phone, police went into the apartment, located at the back of the complex. They found the seven, aged 15 to 60, dead.

Seoul when the women’s husbands died. Monday’s meeting appeared to be Kim Jong Un’s first reported meeting with South Koreans since his father’s death. The Kim family has extended its control over the country of 24 million people to a third generation with Kim Jong Un, who is in his late 20s and was revealed last year as his father’s choice among three sons for successor. Kim Jong Il, who ruled North Korea for 17 years, wielded power as head of three main state organs: the Workers’ Party, the Korean People’s Army and the National Defense Commission. His father, North Korea founder Kim Il Sung, remains the nation’s “eternal president” long after his 1994 death. Kim Jong Un was named a vice chairman of the Central

being groomed to become the next leader. Monday’s reference to his new title was in a commentary in the

Rodong Sinmun newspaper, the mouthpiece of the Workers’ Party, urging soldiers to dedicate th e i r l i v e s “ t o p r o t e c t t h e party’s Central Committee headed by respected Comrade Kim Jong Un.” Rodong Sinmun has also called on the people to become “eternal revolutionary comrades” with Kim Jong Un, “the sun of the 21st century.” The language echoed slogans used for years to rally support for Kim Jong Il, and made clear that the son is quickly moving toward leadership of the Workers’ Party, one of the country’s highest positions, in addition to the military. North Korea refers to Kim Il Sung as the “sun” of the nation, and his birthday is celebrated as the “Day of the Sun.” State media have sought to emphasize Kim Jong Un’s role in carrying out the Kim

barely enough job creation in 2012 to stay ahead of population growth and the return of discouraged workers into the labor force. “I just don’t know if it’s going to be enough to bring the unemployment rate down,” says Chad Moutray, chief economist for the National Association of Manufacturers. The AP economists expect the unemployment rate to be stuck at a recession-level 8.4 percent when voters go to the polls in November. Unemployment was 8.6 percent in November. A majority (56 percent) of the economists say the economy will get a lift from Federal Reserve policies. The Fed has said it plans to keep short-term interest rates near zero through at least mid-2013 if the economy remains weak. The central bank also has begun a campaign to try to push down mortgage rates and other long-term interest rates through next June. Those surveyed also think the economy is strong enough to withstand higher oil prices. At near $100 a barrel, oil prices are up 10 percent from a year ago. But only two of the economists AP surveyed expect the higher prices to slow the economy “a lot.” The economists expect the European economy to shrink 0.5 percent in 2011 — and fall into a recession. Europe is slowing as heavily indebted countries slash spending and banks exposed to government debt curtain lending. Among the gravest fears is that a major country like

It was unclear whether the nation’s constitution had been changed to reflect the transfer of leadership as when Kim Jong Il took power after his father’s death. Mourning continued, meanwhile, despite frigid winter weather, in the final days before Kim Jong Il’s funeral, which is set to take place Wednesday, and a memorial Thursday. People continued lining up Monday in central Pyongyang’s Kim Il Sung Square, where a massive portrait that usually features Kim Il Sung has been replaced by one of Kim Jong Il, to bow before his smiling image and to lay funeral flowers. Heated buses stood by to give mour ners a respite from the cold, and hot tea and water were distributed from beverage kiosks.

Italy will default on its debt, wiping out some banks with large holdings of European government bonds.

Twenty-one of the economists listed Europe as a threat to the U.S. economy next year. “If it were a big enough downturn, given the size of Europe, it could bring the world economy down into recession,” says Allen Sinai, president of Decision Economics. But overall, the economists see only an 18 percent chance that Europe’s debt troubles will cause a recession in the United States. The economists are divided over which one step European policymakers should take now to bolster the 17-country eurozone. More than one-fourth say the European Central Bank should aggressively try to lower the borrowing costs of the Italian and Spanish governments by buying their bonds. Nearly one-fifth say European countries should jointly issue “Eurobonds” to help finance weaker countries. And 17 percent say European governments should slash spending. Still, the economists expect European policymakers to find a way to prevent the crisis from escalating into a global financial panic. If Europe can stabilize its economies, the U.S. stock markets would rally sharply, economists say, and prospects for U.S. economic growth would brighten. “Europe appears to be the only real impediment to keeping this recovery from happening,” said Joel Naroff, president of Naroff Economics.

The god who failed, and then was gone A4 Tuesday, December 27, 2011

TOM PLATE PACIFIC PERSPECTIVES

And suddenly yet another communist god who failed was dead. Seemingly suddenly. Major historic chapter -ending news is often like that — it seems to happen so terribly suddenly. Many North Koreans were said to be sincerely weeping. But for other people around the world, the end came none too soon. Worldwide eyes are quite dry and will so remain, for as long as there is historical memory. What was remarkable about the death of the despot of North Korea (allegedly aged 69) was how quickly this historic “sudden news” reached the outside world. In Asia, you see, it’s amazing how significant news sometimes gets out no more rapidly than a backlash of taffy. This can be the case regarding

news about political big shots. Take the infamous example of the death of Japan’s Keizo Obuchi in 2000. It was kept from the Japanese people for as long as possible. After the prime minister’s stroke, which itself was only slowly reported, the true facts of his prolonged deep coma were blurred from public view. But if death came slowly to North Korea’s Kim, rumored for some serious amount of time to be frail, the news did not. World communications are now so revolutionary these days that not even a reactionary state can hide things for all that long. Consider another reason for the spread of the blockbuster news of the death of the leader of a country with a mere 24 or so million people and few tourist sites to brag about: it’s the introduced element of uncertainty. There’s no guarantee that what

will follow the departed leader will prove more salutary for the people of North Korea than his decades of miserable incompetent rule. And isn’t that a terrible thought: That what lies ahead might just prove worse than what we have already experienced or witnessed. A second factor is that for prideful Koreans, who rightly point to South Korea as a great success story, North Korea under the late Kim was an extreme embarrassment. It was so inarguably the worst managed country in Asia that it almost inspired a vague fondness for Communist Albania. You could even summarize bad gover nment in two words: North Korea. Everything about it seemed bent, even the formal title of the Communist state: Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, what a joke! So with the guy now gone, how

Roswell Daily Record

can the next guy be worse? The answer to that might be: Don’t ask. It’s depressing, but I have a confession to make: I have been and remain a cockeyed optimist. For years I have been trying to convince myself (and others) that only a denuclearized Korean Peninsula makes sense for the world. But for Koreans on the peninsula? South Korea can certainly live without nuclear weapons if the North can. But can the leaders of the North? They look at the fallen Gaddafi regime and wonder: Might not it still be around had Libya been nuclear? Wouldn’t NATO have shied away from intervening if the probably crazy Gaddafi had had his finger on a nuclear trigger? Perish that thought — and that any of Kim’s successors might take it to heart.

Let us instead entertain some good “sudden news” soon. Perhaps Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, doing such a commendable job for America, will show up in Pyongyang to start to put together a deal with the new transitional DPRK government. Or President Barack Obama will. Or maybe Ban Ki-moon, the head of the U.N. who has made so many Koreans everywhere proud, will take the historic initiative. Who can think of anyone more qualified? Forget about the Six Party Talks. Even if they resume, their promise has come and gone. We know now, and we probably always knew at some level, that progress could only come with mutual concessions initiated from the very top — that middlelevel negotiators from Pyongyang See PLATE, Page A5

Kim Jong Il’s death

The death of North Korean dictator Kim Jong Il presents both dangers and opportunities for America. The dangers come from the instability in the North Korean regime, which with Cuba is the last of the old, hard-core communist regimes. Every other communist regime — China, Russia, Vietnam, etc. — has switched to some sort of capitalism, however imperfect. Capitalism produced prosperity. By contrast, socialism, especially in its virulent communist version, produced poverty and starvation. North Korea also has per formed two nuclear tests. According to the Federation of American Scientists, it may have up to nine nuclear weapons, although no one knows the exact number, or if it actually possesses such weapons. The Pyongyang regime also possesses a significant chemical-weapons capability. Although socialist regimes are supposed to elevate to power only the best to lead the “vanguard of the proletariat,” as Lenin put it, North Korea developed a nepotistic dynasty. In 1994, Kim succeeded his father, longtime dictator Kim Il-sung. Although the younger Kim was dubbed the “Dear Leader,” only his friends, cronies and some brainwashed North Koreans will mourn his demise. In 1994, he had a chance to modernize North Korea. In 1989, the Berlin Wall had fallen. Its arms patron, the Soviet Union, dissolved its own Communist Party in 1991. And neighbor and patron China had switched to a market economy in 1978. But Kim continued his father’s obsession with socialism, leading his country to continued impoverishment, even starvation. Yet Kim himself, according to Russian reports, had live lobsters flown to him during his trips to Russia and China. By contrast, South Korea transformed itself from total poverty after the Korean War in 1953 into today’s economic powerhouse. The contrast can be seen at the Olympic Games, such as those at Beijing in 2008. The North Korean athletes, the cream of their society, appear shorter than their South Korean counterparts due to vitamin and caloric deficiencies. North Korea long has been a mystery to outsiders. That remains so today, with the heir apparent to the socialist dynasty being Kim Jong-un, Kim Jong Il’s third son and the vice chairman of the Central Military Commission. The younger Kim reportedly is 27 or 28 years old, attended high school in Switzerland and is obsessed with the National Basketball Association. So he at least has some knowledge of the prosperity and freedom of non-communist countries. But the new leader also faces challenges within the ruling regime, Doug Bandow told us; he’s a senior fellow at the Cato Institute and the author of two books on Korea policy. “From the American standpoint, we should be prepared to talk but shouldn’t expect to get anything out of it. There will be no agreement during the transition” on North Korea getting rid of its nuclear arsenal because “there are low hopes of anything to come out of the generals.” The new leader — or someone else — first must solidify his position as the person in charge before anything meaningful can result. But now is a good time, Bandow said, for the United States to “emphasize South Korea’s responsibility on policy. South Korea is well-equipped to deal with it.” Due to the vast growth of its capitalist economy, democratic South Korea today has twice the population and an incredible 40 times the economic power as North Korea. It also has access to top-level U.S. weapons, whereas the North still depends to a great extent on outdated Soviet-era weapons. Bandow long has held that American troops, currently 28,500, gradually should be withdrawn from South Korea, allowing the country to defend itself. But he said the United States should wait to begin the withdrawal until the power transition in the North is complete. In the meantime, negotiations for the withdrawal should continue with South Korea. We agree. Guest Editorial The Orange County Register

An American holiday for all This story begins with one of the most American of holiday traditions — a walk to see the decorated tree at New York City’s Rockefeller Center. Our Sunday-evening outing began like many American families living through “la crisis” these days: on a budget. For us, that’s all-you-can-eat sushi. At the restaurant, there was a mix of New Yorkers, but no tourists. The men behind the sushi bar were Japanese, but every five minutes a man from the kitchen would appear with a bowl of cooked rice or eel, and he was Mexican or

Dear Editor: Another Christmas season has come and gone and once again the Roswell Community generously provided for children who otherwise would not have had Christmas gifts. The Secret Santa Program was started at Tobosa Developmental Services six years ago when it was realized that some families in the Los Pasitos Early Intervention Program and Day Care would not be able to provide Christmas gifts for their children. Last year Tobosa partnered with Christ’s Church, and Gift of Love was born. With the generosity of Tobosa employees, Christ’s Church members, businesses, clubs and organizations in Roswell, 297 children received Christmas gifts this year. It was a flurry of activity as children were nominated and then adopted by folks who purchased gifts for them. Brave Black Friday shoppers, and sale purchases throughout the year helped to build up the inventory. We want to thank the many volunteers who wrapped the gifts before Celebration Day that was

Stress can skyrocket when you’re grieving the loss of a spouse. Suddenly, new responsibilities fall on your shoulders. There may be difficult financial issues to deal with. For most people, talking these problems through with the appropriate professional is helpful. That can mean mental health professionals, financial counselors and stress management programs. Family and friends can provide a strong source of support. I’ve had patients who reached out to someone else who was not a close friend but who had experienced a similar loss. They were reluctant to “impose” on the person, but almost always, talking things through helped both people. A grief support group can accomplish the same thing. It connects you to oth-

But send a former U.S. president or past or current secretary of state up there to Pyongyang and things could happen. My suggestion is to have someone at a very impressive level go and stay until a deal is done — stay for months.

The former House speaker’s campaign imploded last summer and still shows the after effects: a shortage of funds to counter attack ads in Iowa, and failure to qualify for the primary in Virginia in March. After insisting he would run a purely positive campaign, Gingrich let it be known he was about to attack Romney on one of his presumed areas of strength, his economic proposals. R.C. Hammond, a spokesman for Gingrich, said the candidate would make the case that Romney has advanced “very timid ideas that will do little to get people back to work.” Gingrich favors an end to taxes on investment income and dividends, while Romney wants to end them only for individuals with incomes of $200,000 or less.

Rick Perry countered with an advertisement that said four of his rivals combined — none of them Romney — have served 63 years in Congress, “leaving us with debt, ear marks and bailouts.” For mer Pennsylvania Sen.

Woman, son are rescued after Facebook post

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Utah police say a woman used Facebook to get help after she and her 17month-old son were held hostage at a residence for nearly five days. Salt Lake County Jail documents say the woman posted on Saturday that she and her son would be “dead by morning” if they were not rescued. That prompted a welfare check at the home by Sandy police. Of ficers arrested 33year-old Troy Reed Critchfield and booked him into jail for investigation of aggravated kidnapping, forcible sodomy, aggravated assault, domestic violence, child abuse, animal cruelty and other charges. He remained in jail on Monday. It was not immediately clear whether Critchfield had an attorney. Police say the woman hid in a closet and used a laptop to post the Facebook message.

Bachmann, all eager to energize their existing supporters and attract new ones. Texas Rep. Ron Paul arrives Wednesday. Recent polls suggest he is peaking as caucus day approaches,

and in some surveys is tied with Romney or even ahead. The result figures to be a short but intense stretch of campaigning through small towns and even smaller towns, the sort of one-on-one politicking that has largely vanished in the electronic age. Failing that, it will pay tribute to the types cuisine that prosper in early 21st century America. The Perry bus will belly up to Doughy Joey’s in Waterloo and to the Fainting Goat in Waverly, an establishment whose website says “After 10 p.m., we are the type of place your mothers warned you about.” Perry also will visit a vineyard and winery in Carroll. Bachmann will make an early-winter stop at a Dairy Queen, as well as Pizza Ranch establishments in Harlan, Red Oak

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

BIGAR ARIES (March 21-April 19) #### Gossip and information swirl around you. Knowing what to believe and what to discard will take YOUR HOROSCOPE more than talent. Recognize the importance of getting feedback from associates. You want and need to know what is fact and what is gossip. Tonight: Where your friends are. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) #### You want to stay on top of your game. How you deal with another person and what occurs at this time could make a big difference. Your sense of humor emerges when having an important conversation. Get all the necessary facts from an associate. Tonight: Know that you will make the right choice. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) ##### Bridge a problem by detaching and understanding what set it in motion. You might feel that someone doesn’t care. Be direct when dealing with others, but do whatever you need to do in order not to get into a convoluted situation. Tonight: Let your imagination wander. CANCER (June 21-July 22) #### Deal directly with a partner who can be cantankerous. You’ll finally have a conversation that helps clarify what is happening. Open up a conversation involving a work-related matter. Many different ideas come up. Tonight: Continue a talk over dinner. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) ##### You find others to be unusually responsive and touchy. Use the moment to have an important meeting. Allow an associate to have equal say. This person’s feedback triggers ideas. If you are single, an encounter might be light yet worthwhile. Tonight: Say “yes.” VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) #### You have so much ground to cover, you could be startled by feedback from someone close. Your mind is everywhere but on your domestic life. You are right to complete one project before moving on to another. Still, make room for a pending personal talk. Tonight: Squeeze in some exercise and center yourself. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) ##### Keep asking questions, making calls and reaching out for someone you care about. You could discover that a child or loved one wants to share more of his or her feelings. You hold up your hand, trying to slow down this person’s pace. Verbalize and set a better time in the next 24 hours. Tonight: Opt for fun. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) #### Listen to forthcoming news. You might feel a little odd, as you don’t have the control you desire. Involvement in a personal or domestic issue circles around finances. Focusing on other matters could be close to impossible. Tonight: Your treat.

Tonight: Meet friends at a favorite haunt. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) ### Use care when dealing with your finances.

NA T I O N A L BRIEFS TORREALBA GETS 66-GAME BAN IN VENEZUELA

CARACAS, Venezuela (AP) — Texas Rangers catcher Yorvit Torrealba was suspended Monday from Venezuela’s professional baseball league for 66 games for striking an umpire. Torrealba issued an apology, saying he was embarrassed about his argument with a home plate umpire after striking out Friday. He angrily put a hand on the umpire’s mask and shoved him. He was then ejected. “I wanted to express my sincere apologies to all parties for my actions,” Torrealba said in his statement. “I have extended an apology to the Rangers organization as well. I am embarrassed for my conduct, and personally relayed that feeling to the umpire after that night’s game. “On the field, I strive to be an example for children, especially those in my native Venezuela, and I regret my actions,” he said. “I understand the reactions to the incident and will make every effort to set a positive example in the future.” League President Jose Grasso Vecchio called Torrealba’s behavior unacceptable and a violation of league rules. Torrealba plays for the Caracas Lions when not playing in the majors. His agent, Melvin Roman, said Torrealba acknowledged he got carried away in the heat of the moment.

NBA’S RETURN YIELDS HIGH TV RATINGS

NEW YORK (AP) — NBA fans seem more excited about basketball’s return than bitter about the lockout based on television ratings for the league’s delayed openers. The five Christmas games Sunday averaged 6.2 million viewers based on fast national ratings, up from 6 million last year. The Bulls-Lakers matchup was the third most-watched regular-season game ever on ABC, behind only last year’s highly anticipated HeatLakers showdown and another meeting between Miami and LA in 2004. Chris Paul’s Clippers debut in the nightcap against the Warriors earned a 2.2 rating, up 69 percent over last year’s PortlandGolden State telecast in the same slot. It was ESPN’s highestrated Christmas prime-time game. The day’s first contest, Celtics-Knicks on TNT, was the most viewed Christmas game ever on cable. The 4.0 rating was up 48 percent from last year’s Bulls-Knicks game on ESPN.

Brees breaks Marino’s passing mark Section

New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees celebrates after breaking Dan Marino’s NFL record for passing yards in a single season. Brees hit Darren Sproles for a 9-yard touchdown on the play that pushed him past Marino.

E-mail: sports@rdrnews.com

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Quite a night for Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints — a record and a rout. Brees set the NFL record for yards passing in a season, breaking a mark that Dan Marino had held for 27 years, and the New Orleans Saints clinched the NFC South title with a 45-16 victory over the Atlanta Falcons on Monday night. Brees threw for 307 yards and four touchdowns, the last a 9-yard strike to Darren Sproles that set the record with 2:51 to go. “Honestly, I was really trying not to think about the record or anything,” Brees said. “I knew we were close. A couple guys mentioned stuff to me on the sideline. I didn’t want to hear it. It’s like a pitcher with a no-hitter, I guess.” It was Brees’ final pass of the game and it gave him 5,087 yards passing — with one game still to play. Marino finished with 5,084 yards for the Miami Dolphins in 1984. Minutes after Brees broke the record, Marino offered congratulations on his Twitter account. “Great job by such a special player,” Marino wrote. As Sproles spiked the ball, Brees put his ar m over his head and started walking toward midfield while the Superdome crowd went

wild and his teammates chased him down. “I just got bum-rushed by the offensive linemen so I figured at that point, OK, I guess we finally broke the record,” Brees said. Brees’ four touchdowns gave him 276 for his career, moving him ahead of Joe Montana (273) and Vinny Testeverde (275) for ninth all-time. He is the first quarterback in NFL history to pass for more than 5,000 yards twice — he had 5,069 in 2008. Brees’ first scoring pass went for 8 yards to Marques Colston and the second for 9 yards to Jimmy Graham. Graham’s TD catch was his 10th of the season, a new franchise high for a tight end. In the third quarter, Brees hit Robert Meachem for a score from 24 yards, which made it 28-10. “I love our fans, I love the fact that everybody could be part of this on Monday Night Football,” Brees said. “There’s so many people that are a part of this. It’s not about me, it’s about this team, it’s about this city, it’s about these fans. So many people contributed to this, and I’m happy for them.” The Saints also had 463 total yards, giving them more than 6,857 offensive yards for the sea-

Tale of the Moth: Just one of 2011’s quirks

Who knows what lurks in the night air? Sometimes just a flutter, and everything changes. Matt Holliday was out in left field one August night in St. Louis. He already had enough to handle — slashing line drives, the glare of the lights, the crowd. It never occurred to him that what he really needed was a screen porch. For in the eighth inning of that game against the Dodgers, a moth flew deep inside his right ear. He walked off the field with the trainer, his hand pressed to his ear. Holliday had been on the disabled list twice this season with an appendectomy and injured thigh. This was new territory. The question then was how to extract the little bugger. Two trainers and a team physician — Is there an entomologist in the house? — tried at first to outfox the moth. They darkened the room and hoped the critter would simply fly away. When that failed, they brought out the heavy artillery — some tweezers — and the moth was no more. “He died overflowed of wisdom inside my head,” Holliday said. In a sports year that at times seemed like an unremitting stream of labor discord and troubling news across college campuses, the Tale of the Moth was a flittering and welcome change of pace. It also recalled a playoff game in Cleveland four years ago when a swarm of midges enjoyed a fleshy banquet on the ample jowls of Yankees pitcher Joba Chamberlain. The midges, however, were considerate enough to just park themselves on the surface of Chamberlain’s skin. The moth had the temerity to enter an open portal. “That was my concern,” Holliday said. “That it would eat through my brain.” His brain was fine, and so were the Cardinals, who went on win the World Series — Clydesdales high-stepping in triumph, with no sightings of moths. But the moth, or one of its brethren, was not done making mischief. Later that month in Boston, the Yankees’ Phil Hughes was delivering a 3-2 pitch when a moth flew into his eye. The batter walked, leading to a big inning and a Boston victory. New York manager Joe Girardi understood that forces of nature were beyond his control.

Romo’s swelling subsiding See QUIRKS, Page B2

IRVING, Texas (AP) — All the negative tests on quarterback Tony Romo’s bruised throwing hand are positives for the Dallas Cowboys. Coach Jason Garrett said Monday that the swelling is going down and that a number of different tests have confirmed the original diagnosis of nothing being broken in Romo’s right hand. The Cowboys are hopeful that he can practice Wednesday. “It looks like it is getting better. All the X-rays and tests that have come back are negative,” Garrett said. “We hope in the next couple of days with treatment he’ll be able to take a snap and hold a football and throw it the way he needs to.” When asked if Romo could grip a football, the coach responded, “He has a relatively fir m handshake.” All indications are that Romo will be ready for Sunday night’s game at the New York Giants that will deter mine who wins the NFC East and goes to the

SHREVEPORT, La. (AP) — James Franklin’s hard running and timely passing led Missouri to an easy win in its final game as a member of the Big 12. It also gives the Tigers plenty of hope heading into their new home in the Southeastern Conference. Franklin ran for two touchdowns and threw for another, and the Tigers easily beat North Carolina 41-24 in the Independence Bowl on Monday night. Missouri (8-5) ends the season on a four -game winning streak for the first time since 1965. The Tigers will join the SEC next fall and showed one reason they should be a factor immediately: The 6-foot2, 225-pound Franklin, a sophomore who generally did as he pleased in both the running and passing games. Missouri coach Gary Pinkel said Franklin has just started to realize his potential. “After the game, I gave him a hug and said congratulations,” Pinkel said. “Then I went back and asked ‘What happens when you get really good?’ ... He kind of gave me a look, but that’s a huge compliment.” Franklin, named the game’s offensive Most Valuable Player, rushed for 142 yards and threw for 132 despite less than ideal conditions in the cold and rain at Independence Stadium. He led the Tigers to 31 first-half points — an Independence Bowl record. For North Carolina (7-6), a season that started with a promising 5-1 record ends with a lopsided loss. The Tar Heels lost five of their final seven under interim coach Everett Withers, who leaves to become defensive coordinator at Ohio State under Urban Meyer. North Carolina had the Atlantic Coast Conference’s

That slide includes a 37-34 loss at home to the Giants on Dec. 11, when New York overcame a 12-point deficit with two touchdowns in the final 3 1 ⁄ 2 minutes. The rematch determines the NFC East champion, with the loser missing the playoffs at 8-8. “For us, things have gone our way enough to give us this chance,” Garrett said. “You can look back at the successes that we had that maybe we shouldn’t have had and maybe

The Real Madrid soccer team finally won back the Copa del Rey trophy after 18 years, only for it to be dropped by defender Sergio Ramos and crushed under a bus. And there was no save by Ajax goalkeeper Maarten Stekelenburg, who mishandled the Dutch league trophy that toppled from the top of a bus in Amsterdam. Or consider the botched travel arrangements at hockey’s world championships. The French team was booked for a flight to Poland. Only one problem: It was supposed to go to Slovakia. Plans also went awry for Jakub Maly, who was training in Florida with the Austrian Olympic swim team. On a day off at the beach, he dug a huge hole and thought it fun to jump in.

and 60 rescuers were needed to extricate him. Interment, apparently, was all the rage. A junior varsity football coach from Marcellus, N.Y., had an inspirational moment. He decided after a loss to stop the team bus and have his players lie between rows of graves in a cemetery. He was soon suspended. But no one had a monopoly on bad judgment. At a low-level soccer game in England, a player tackled a streaker dashing around the field in a thong. The referee, however, chose to eject the player for attacking the intruder. Ashley Vickers, who was given the red card, told the Dorset Echo: “It beggars belief.” Yet the referee — and even the streaker — were models of good sense compared to some Cologne fans at a German league soccer

second-best rushing defense, giving up just 106.2 yards per game. But the T igers found plenty of running room with Franklin and Kendial Lawrence, repeatedly gashing the Tar Heels for big gains. “(Frankin) is just such a dynamic guy running and throwing that you have to respect both,” Withers said. “I always count the quarterback as an extra running back in the spread and that’s exactly what he was.” Lawrence rushed for 108 yards and a touchdown as the T igers racked up 337 yards on the ground.

But Renner couldn’t offset the Tar Heels’ anemic running game, which produced just 36 yards.

Withers said he didn’t think the program’s upcoming coaching change had any bearing on the outcome. The Tar Heels hired Souther n Mississippi’s Larry Fedora last week. “We’ve had issues for two years so I don’t know why tonight would be any distraction,” Withers said.

Edmonton Oilers center Gilbert Brule had no idea what was in store when he picked up a hitchhiker in British Columbia. Turned out it was Bono. The rock star — yes, he was actually thumbing a ride — thanked Brule by giving him and his girlfriend backstage passes for a U2 concert.

ton Journal. Golf, of course, is a humbling game. And Kevin Na, like many before him, was reminded all too well of that at the Texas Open. On the ninth hole, he began by driving into the woods. That was one of his better shots. By the time he was done, he marked a 16 on his scorecard. There was no way to note the damage to his psyche. “It’s all a blur,” he said. Even in victory, golf can bring a player down to size. Scotland’s Elliot Saltman made a hole-in-one at the Madrid Masters, where various prizes were awarded for aces, with watches and cars offered on some holes. Saltman won his body weight in ham. “I’ve been trying to lose weight,” he said. “But now I’m thinking I should have just kept it.” Shanle and Malcolm Jenkins returned it 30 yards for a score to make it 38-16 in the fourth quarter. The Superdome crowd was in full celebration by then, but the play also meant fans would have to wait until later in the fourth quarter before Brees finally got his chance to break the passing record. “Obviously it’s a special moment for the players, especially Drew,” Saints coach Sean Payton said. “I couldn’t be more proud of him.” Atlanta, which won the NFC South last season, is headed to the playoffs as a wild card.

NFL Roundup: Giants, Lions among winners Roswell Daily Record

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — Victor Cruz set two franchise receiving records, and Ahmad Bradshaw ran for two touchdowns as the Giants kept their playoff hopes alive by winning the New York-area bragging rights with a 29-14 victory over the Jets on Saturday. After a week of trash talk about who ruled the city, neither team did much to boast about. But the Giants (8-7) did more than the Jets (8-7) and can win the NFC East with a victory next week against Dallas. The Jets’ playoff hopes took a serious hit, and they will need to win at Miami next week and get help from several other teams. Cruz, who had three catches for 164 yards, broke Amani Toomer’s single-season mark for yards receiving — and the team’s record for longest touchdown reception, a 99-yarder that gave the Giants the lead for good in the second quarter.

LIONS 38, CHARGERS 10 DETROIT (AP) — The Lions made the playoffs for the first time since 1999 as Matthew Stafford threw three touchdown passes in the first half. Detroit (10-5) has won three straight after a seven-game slump to earn a wild-card spot. According to the Chargers (78), they will not be in the postseason for a second straight year after making it five times in a sixseason stretch. And that might cost coach Norv Turner his job. The Lions held San Diego scoreless until midway through the third quarter, when Philip Rivers threw an 11-yard pass to Malcom Floyd to make it 24-7.

PATRIOTS 27, DOLPHINS 24 FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — Tom Brady ran for two touchdowns and threw for another and New England rallied to clinch a playoff bye. The Patriots trailed 17-0 at halftime then scored on their first five possessions in the second half. The Dolphins helped when Matt Moore lost a fumble at his 38-yard line then threw an interception that Devin McCourty picked off at the Patriots 2. New England (12-3) won its seventh straight game. After the Texans lost to the Colts on Thursday night, the Patriots needed a win or a tie to lock up one of the AFC’s top two spots. Miami (5-10) lost for the third time in eight games after opening at 0-7 and is 1-1 under Todd Bowles, who took over when Tony Sparano was fired. RAIDERS 16, CHIEFS 13, OT KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Sebastian Janikowski kicked a 36yard field goal 2:13 into overtime, eliminating Kansas City from the playoff race and keeping Oakland’s AFC West title hopes alive. Carson Palmer threw for 237 yards and a touchdown for the Raiders (8-7). His per fectly thrown 53-yard pass to Darrius Heyward-Bey early in overtime set up Janikowski’s winning kick, allowing Oakland to avoid a second straight late-game meltdown. Kyle Orton threw for 300 yards for Kansas City, his only TD pass going to Dwayne Bowe with 1:02 left to tie the game. The Raiders went three-and-out, giving Kansas City the ball back, and Orton hit Bowe for 25 yards and Terrance Copper for 11 more to set up Ryan Succop for a potential winning field goal on the final play of the game. Succop’s 49-yard try was blocked by Trevor Scott to send the game to overtime.

BILLS 40, BRONCOS 14 ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) — Jairus Byrd and Spencer Johnson returned Tim Tebow interceptions for touchdowns on consecutive plays in the fourth quarter to help Buffalo snap a sevengame losing streak. Tebow finished with a careerworst four interceptions as the Broncos (8-7) fell into a tie with Oakland for first place in the AFC West. Denver lost its second in a row while squandering a chance to inch closer to its first playoff berth since 2005. Byrd scored on a 37-yard return with 8:03 left and Johnson had a 17-yarder 18 seconds later for Buffalo (6-9). C.J. Spiller ran for a career-best 111 yards and a touchdown, and Leodis McKelvin scored on an 80-yard punt return. TITANS 23, JAGUARS 17 NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Matt

Tuesday, December 27, 2011

Hasselbeck threw for 240 of his 350 yards in the first half as Tennessee tried to keep its faint playoff hopes alive. The Titans (8-7) snapped a twogame skid, and head to Houston with a chance at their first winning record since 2008. Rob Bironas kicked three field goals, including a pair of 51yarders, and Jamie Harper ran for a touchdown. Jared Cook had a 55-yard TD catch and finished with 169 yards receiving, a franchise high for a tight end. Maurice Jones-Drew, the NFL’s rushing leader, ran for 103 yards and a TD for the Jaguars (4-11). He now has a career-high 1,437 yards this season.

BENGALS 23, CARDINALS 16 CINCINNATI (AP) — Andy Dalton threw a pair of touchdown passes, and Cincinnati withstood yet another fourth-quarter comeback by Arizona that kept the Bengals in playoff contention. Another small crowd at Paul Brown Stadium saw the Bengals (9-6) secure only their third winning record in the last 21 years and stay in the running for the final AFC wild card. Dalton threw an 11-yard touchdown pass to Jermaine Gresham and a 19-yarder to Jerome Simpson, who did a somersault over a defender and landed on both feet in the end zone. Dalton joined Peyton Manning (26), Charlie Conerly (22) and Dan Marino (20) as the only NFL rookies to throw 20 touchdowns. Arizona (7-8) rallied from a 230 deficit and had a chance to tie. Receiver Early Doucet was uncovered at the goal line but tripped as he ran, letting a fourth-down pass fall incomplete with 1:11 left.

VIKINGS 33, REDSKINS 26 LANDOVER, Md. (AP) — The Minnesota Vikings overcame injuries to Adrian Peterson and Christian Ponder on back-to-back plays to end a six-game losing streak. Toby Gerhart filled in for Peterson and set up a touchdown with a 67-yard run, and Joe Webb threw for two TDs and ran for another while subbing for Ponder. Webb’s 8-yard pass to Percy Harvin broke a 23-all tie early in the fourth quarter, and rookie Mistral Raymond’s first career interception set up Ryan Longwell’s 23-yard field goal that gave the Vikings a 10-point lead with 4:05 to play. The Vikings are 3-12. The Redskins lost their sixth straight home game to fall to 5-10. Peterson tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee on the first offensive play of the second half. Ponder sustained a concussion.

PANTHERS 48, BUCCANEERS 16 CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Cam Newton broke Peyton Manning’s rookie record for yards passing in a season and set a franchise record with a 91-yard touchdown pass to Brandon LaFell. Newton threw for 171 yards and three touchdowns and scored on a remarkable 49-yard run up the middle in which he outraced smaller defensive backs to the end zone. The Panthers (6-9) scored on eight of their first nine possessions and piled up 397 yards in three quarters against the league’s 30th-ranked defense. Coach Ron Rivera pulled Newton and the other key starters early in the fourth quarter. DeAngelo Williams scored on runs of 8 and 22 yards, his sixth and seventh of the season, and Jonathan Stewart ran for 88 yards and caught an 11-yard touchdown pass from Newton. Tampa Bay (4-11) lost its ninth in a row. STEELERS 27, RAMS 0 PITTSBURGH (AP) — Rashard Mendenhall ran for 116 yards and a touchdown and backup quarterback Charlie Batch played efficiently in place of an injured Ben Roethlisberger. The Steelers (11-4) kept their hopes of an AFC North title alive even with Roethlisberger’s sprained left ankle forcing him to watch the game from the sideline as the team’s third quarterback. Pittsburgh hardly needed him. The defense had little trouble dominating the NFL’s lowestscoring offense. St. Louis (2-13) managed just 232 yards while getting shut out for the second time this month. Steven Jackson rushed for 103 yards to top 1,000 for the seventh

The Rams lost their sixth straight.

RAVENS 20, BROWNS 14 BALTIMORE (AP) — Joe Flacco threw two touchdown passes, and Baltimore moved one step closer to winning the AFC North. Ray Rice ran for 87 yards and caught a TD pass for the Ravens (11-4), who led 17-0 at halftime and held on against the bumbling Browns. Baltimore completed its first unbeaten season at home (80). The Ravens would win the AFC North by defeating Cincinnati next week. That would also give them a first-round bye and a home playoff game. Josh Cribbs had a career-high 84-yard punt return for Cleveland (4-11). But the Browns generated little offense and were victimized by questionable play calling, bad clock management and untimely penalties in their fifth straight loss.

49ERS 19, SEAHAWKS 17 SEATTLE (AP) — David Akers kicked four field goals, including a 39-yarder with 2:57 left, and San Francisco hung on against Seattle (7-8). Larry Grant sealed the win by forcing Tarvaris Jackson’s fumble that was recovered by Donte Whitner with 1:07 left. San Francisco (12-3), which already clinched the NFC West, remained in position for the No. 2 seed in the conference and a first-round playoff bye. Akers set an NFL record with his 42nd field goal of the season. Frank Gore had a 4-yard touchdown run on the 49ers’ first drive of the second half. Marshawn Lynch scored on a 4-yard run with 6:41 left to give Seattle a 17-16 lead. It was the first TD rushing allowed by the 49ers this season. EAGLES 20, COWBOYS 7 ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Michael Vick threw two touchdown passes in a game that had all the intensity of a preseason dress rehearsal. This game became somewhat meaningless midway through the first quarter. A victory by the Giants eliminated the Eagles (7-8) from the playoffs and turned the Dallas-New York game next weekend into a showdown to decide the NFC East title. The Cowboys (8-7) sat quarterback Tony Romo after one series and running back Felix Jones after two. Vick threw a touchdown pass on the opening series and again just before halftime. Alex Henery kicked field goals of 43 and 51 yards for the Eagles.

GREEN BAY 35, CHICAGO 21 GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — Aaron Rodgers had the first five-touchdown game of his career, and the Green Bay Packers clinched the No. 1 seed in the NFC playoffs with a 35-21 victory over the rival Chicago Bears on Sunday night. Rodgers threw a pair of touchdowns to Jordy Nelson, another two to James Jones, and found Jermichael Finley for a score for

the Packers (14-1), who secured home-field advantage in the NFC. The loss eliminated the Bears (7-8) from playoff contention and put the Atlanta Falcons in the playoffs as at least a wild card. Third-string running back Kahlil Bell rushed for 121 yards for the Bears, who trailed by four early in the third quarter. But Rodgers drove the Packers for three quick scores to put the game out of reach. Packers backup Matt Flynn took over for Rodgers with 7:54 left in the game.

Lions in, Eagles out, heading into NFL finales

The Lions and Falcons are in; the Eagles and Bears are out. Cincinnati is closing in on a playof f berth, while the Jets and Raiders need some help. All part of a wild closing act to the NFL season. With one game remaining before teams hunker down for their finales next week (Atlanta at New Orleans on Monday night), the most notable news was made by Detroit. The last time the Lions were a force, Barry Sanders was in their backfield. Sanders retired after the 1998 season, and Detroit made the postseason the next year then plummeted to the bottom of the league. In 2008, the Lions posted the only 0-16 record in NFL history. Now, they’re in the chase for the championship. Their 38-10 rout of San Diego secured an NFC wild card. “Once you get to the playoffs, it’s anybody’s ballgame,” defensive end Cliff Avril said. “The city of Detroit needs it. They’ve been waiting on us to win for a while. It’s such a football town and we haven’t been winning, so it’s huge.” At 10-5, the Lions join North champion Green Bay, West winner San Francisco, South leader New Orleans, and the Atlanta Falcons in the postseason parade. Either Dallas or the New York Giants also will get there — they meet next Sunday night at the Meadowlands in a winner take-all matchup for the NFC East title. The Falcons secured a playoff spot on Sunday night when Green Bay beat Chicago 35-21 and eliminated the Bears in the process. So if the Cowboys and Giants, both 8-7, are battling for the NFC East crown, where does that leave the Eagles, the most disappointing team in the league? Dreaming of the playoffs. The team that “won” free agency after the NFL lockout by signing such prizes as cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha, defensive end Jason Babin and receiver Steve Smith needs to beat Washington next Sunday to finish at .500. Not much return on the dollar for Philly. “If we had gotten into the playoffs, we would have definitely done some damage,” Michael Vick said after the Eagles (7-8) beat Dallas 20-7 on Sunday. “It’s unfortunate we didn’t. That’s the game of football. We made some mistakes early (this season) and got behind in the win-loss col-

umn. But we’re just happy we’re finishing strong.” Finishing strong but going to the playoffs: New England, which won its seventh in a row by rallying from a 17-0 hole to beat Miami 27-24. It was the 10th time this season a team has come back from at least 17 points to win, the most in a single NFL season. “All the while, we never gave up on one another and never said anything negative to one another,” defensive lineman Vince Wilfork said. “Going down 17-0 is a pretty big deficit, but once again this team showed its character.” The AFC East champion Patriots (12-3) would get home-field advantage for the playof fs by beating Buffalo next weekend. Green Bay (14-1) grabbed the home-field edge in the NFC with its win over Chicago on Sunday night. That’s the simple stuff. As for the chaotic, well, just one look at the AFC wild-card race after Sunday’s results can make your head spin. Suffice to say that the Bengals (9-6) are in control. But if they lose to Baltimore (11-4), which needs a victory to clinch the AFC North over Pittsburgh (also 11-4), it brings three other teams into play for the final AFC berth: Tennessee, Oakland and the New York Jets. The Jets (8-7), like Philadelphia, are one of the NFL’s major flops this year. For much of the stretch drive, the Jets were in charge of the chase for the second AFC wild card. They kept messing up, though, and after Sunday’s ugly 29-14 loss to the Giants, they barely are relevant. “We play this game to win the Super Bowl,” star cornerback Darrelle Revis said. “So even to be talking about that excites me, and I think it excites the team for us to go out there and try to win the Super Bowl. That’s what it’s about. It’s not about nothing else.” Unless everyone else in the AFC wild-card scramble loses, Revis and company can forget the Super Bowl this winter. Among the notable individual performance in Week 16: — Reggie Bush went over 1,000 yards rushing for the first time in his career, gaining 113 in Miami’s loss to New England. — The Rams’ Steven Jackson ran for 103 yards in a 27-0 loss to Pittsburgh to go over 1,000 on the season for the seventh straight year. — Seattle’s Marshawn L ynch scored the first TD rushing against San Francisco all season, a 4-yarder. It was the 11th straight game in which he had a touchdown. — 49ers kicker David Akers set an NFL record with 42 field goals for the season, including four in the 19-17 win at Seattle. — Carolina’s Cam Newton broke Peyton Manning’s NFL rookie record for yards passing in a season with 3,893 as the Panthers routed Tampa Bay 48-16. — Denver’s Willis McGahee joined Ricky Watters as the only players to reach 1,000 yards rushing with three teams. He previously did it with Buffalo and Baltimore.

Some do not use force, threats or physical violence. I do not minimize what they do. They all have a mental illness and/or addiction and need intervention and treatment.

DEAR ABBY UNIVERSAL PRESS SYNDICATE

DEAR ABBY: As a clinical psychologist, I believe your advice to “Protective Mom in the Midwest” (Oct. 26) was oversimplified. You told her she was right in not permitting her husband’s brother, a registered sex offender, to visit the family during the holidays. She didn’t want her 10-year-old daughter around him. You have made the common mistake of seeing everyone who carries the “registered sex offender” label as alike. They are no more alike than are people who drink too much. Some alcoholics get drunk, angry and violent, but most do not. Some sex offenders act like Ted

DEAR DR. S.: Your point about lumping all sex offenders together is well-stated. Another reader pointed out that something like urinating outdoors could result in this classification. However, most readers agree with me that the safety of the 10-yearold must be the primary concern. Their comments: DEAR ABBY: Stand your ground, “Protective Mom”! As a vic-

DEAR ABBY: All children should be educated as early as they can understand about issues of trust. Mom will have to watch her daughter every second Jake is around, but she shouldn’t deny her husband the right to have his family come for the holidays. Perhaps he could arrange for his brother to stay at a hotel. Mom can’t be with her child 24/7, so kids need to know how to handle adults who are dangerous. GLORIA IN CLEVELAND DEAR ABBY: I am a sex offender and have learned through therapy why I did what I did and how to not go around where “it” may happen again. Would Jake even accept an offer to stay over? If he’s like me, he’d say, “Thanks, but no thanks,” and not put himself in a situation where someone could cry rape or accuse him of unwanted fondling.

Good morning, Heloise: Each morning when we get our newspaper, I look forward to your “Hints From Heloise.” Thank you for being there for all of us. It seems that a few years ago, you had an inquiry with regard to sending USED CHRISTMAS CARDS to an orphanage or an organization for children. I thought I had saved this information. However, for the life of me, I can’t remember to whom I send the used cards or the organization’s address. If you have time, would you please print this information again? Thank you so much, and keep up the good work. Ann Vaughn, via email

Glad to do it, Ann. St. Jude’s Ranch has been collecting used greeting-card “fronts” for reuse for more than 30 years. The children at St. Jude’s Ranch turn the card fronts into new cards that are sold at the gift shop. The children learn about recycling and running a business. What kinds of cards does St. Jude’s Ranch need? All kinds, including Christmas, general greeting and Easter cards. Right now, it especially needs birthday and thank-you cards. The preferred size is 5-by-7 inches or smaller. Only the front of the card is used, and it is best to have no writing on the card. For shipping, St. Jude’s suggests using the USPS Flat Rate Box, available at the post office. This is the cheapest way to send in the card fronts. The address is: St. Jude’s Ranch for Children Recycled Card Program 100 St. Jude’s Street Boulder City, NV 89005 St. Jude’s cannot accept Hallmark, Disney or American Greeting cards because of trademark and/or copyright issues, since the remade cards are sold.

Dear Heloise: Could you spread the word about the courteous way to admire someone’s ring? The rule is: “Look, but don’t touch.” To keep gems looking their best, they need to be kept free of the oil and grease from fingers that rub across them to “feel” them.

Unborn son’s struggle inspires Christian singer

PERRYSBURG, Ohio (AP) — Told that his unborn son had only half a heart and little chance to survive, the lead singer of the Christian rock band Sanctus Real began pouring his fears and doubts into music. The songs were meant to comfort his family while they searched for answers and sought to understand God’s role during the months before and after the baby’s birth that were filled with surgeries and lifethreatening complications. It didn’t take long for him to realize that his words needed to be shared so that others struggling with life would know they’re not alone. What came out of the heartache was “Every Falling Tear,” a solo album that’s meant to touch and console during the hardest of times. “People want to know that their pain has a purpose,” said Matt Hammitt, one of the founding members of Sanctus Real, a band with two Grammynominated albums since 2008. “That’s the biggest part of sharing our story,” he said. “That there is a purpose.” Hammitt and his wife, Sarah, knew something was wrong minutes after finding out during an ultrasound in April 2010 that their third child would be a boy, following two girls. They saw the sorrow on their doctor’s face even before she spoke. Doctors later confirmed the baby had a rare congenital heart defect called hypoplastic left heart syndrome, which causes the left side of the heart to be severely underdeveloped. For five months, the couple contemplated all of the possible procedures and treatments while weighing the odds of what could go wrong. Their baby would face multiple surgeries and an uncertain future at best. They also didn’t know how to deal with a flood of emotions — the anger, the doubt, the feeling of being alone. Hammitt, 32, decided he needed to tell God how he was feeling, so he started writing songs about their journey. “I began writing about all that I was learning about struggle and faith,” he said. Each song tells of a moment or a series of events leading to the baby’s birth — there’s a father’s fear of holding back his love for a son he may never know and a mother’s hope of finding peace in the midst of despair. “I wanted to write songs that would speak to him someday about how much

his father loved him no matter how long or short his life would be,” Hammitt said, his voice trailing off. The album released in September was his first solo work. On tour during the fall with the band, he included the song “All of Me” in their sets. It starts: “Afraid to love, something that could break. Could I move on if you were torn away?” Hammitt was a high school sophomore when he and guitarist Chris Rohman and drummer Mark Graalman started the band 15 years ago. They’ve stayed together, playing in coffee shops, churches and now arenas. Sanctus Real will be one of nearly a dozen Christian artists taking part in the Winter Jam tour that starts in January, with stops in 47 cities. The song from “Every Falling Tear” that means the most to Hammitt is “T rust,” a worship song that reminds people not to lose faith “even in the darkness, even in the questions, even when the hardest times of life are at hand.” The lyrics were born out of a time when Hammitt was feeling isolated and alone. “Sometimes we need to be reminded of the truth,” he said. “And for me, the truth is that I trust God.” Bowen Matthew Hammitt was born on Sept. 9, 2010. His first open heart surgery came four days later and the next night he went into cardiac arrest. A team of doctors and nurses spent an hour performing CPR until they were able to revive him and get him on life support. Complications and a stroke kept him in the hospital in Ann Arbor, Mich., for just over two months. While there, the couple played demos of the songs Hammitt had written “so Bowen could hear his dad’s voice,” his wife said. Nightshift nurses often turned up the music when most families would leave for the evening. “They felt it was good for all the babies to be soothed,” Sarah said. “We’d come back in the morning and it’d be really loud.” Hammitt recorded the songs for the album soon after the family brought Bowen home to suburban Toledo. His only unease was that they might be critiqued like any other work. “Originally I just wanted them recorded for us at the hospital,” he said. “I realized they’re meant to comfort other people too.” So far, the response has been what he hoped for. They’ve even received notes

from parents who’ve played the songs at their children’s funerals. Now, the Hammitts want to take their work a step further by starting the Whole Hearts Foundation, a source of financial, emotional and spiritual help for families with children suffering from congenital heart defects. They see the foundation becoming their life’s work. “It’s amazing to see even beyond the album what’s come out of this,” Hammitt said. “We had a vision in the hospital, how can we help other families, let them know they’re not alone.” Bowen, who turned 1 in September, faces one more surgery now slated for 2013 to repair his heart. Eventually, he’ll likely need a new heart before he reaches middle age. He’s growing, but not as fast as doctors would like. Sarah watches him closely for any signs of heart failure. He only has a single ventricle pumping oxygen to his body and lungs so she looks to see if he sweats when he eats or if his skin turns blue or red. When Matt brought him downstairs after a nap, a look of worry crossed her For Results You Can Measure
