Last ditch effort to avoid cliff under way

WASHINGTON (AP) — The end game at hand, the White House and Senate leaders made a final stab at compromise Friday night to prevent middle-class tax increases from taking effect at the turn of the new year and possibly block sweeping spending cuts as well.


December 29, 2012

“I’m optimistic we may still be able to reach an agreement that can pass both houses in time,” President Barack Obama said at the White House after meeting for more than an hour with top lawmakers from both houses.

Surprisingly, after weeks of postelection gridlock, Senate leaders sounded even more bullish. The Republican leader, Sen. Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, said he was “hopeful and optimistic” of a deal that could be presented to rank-and-file lawmakers as early as Sunday, a little more than 24 hours before the year-end deadline. Said Majority Leader Harry Reid, “I’m going to do everything I can” to prevent the tax increases and spending cuts that threaten

to send the economy into recession. He cautioned, “Whatever we come up with is going to be imperfect.” House Speaker John Boehner, a Republican who has struggled recently with anti-tax rebels inside his own party, said through an aide he would await the results of the talks between the Senate and White House. Under a timetable sketched by congressional aides, any agreement would first go to the Senate for a See CLIFF, Page A3

ALBUQUERQUE (AP) — Two massive wildfires raced across tinder dry forests in southern New Mexico in 2012, setting records for the largest and most destructive fires in the state’s recorded history.


In Colorado, the worst wildfire season in a decade has yet to be fully extinguished. Densely forested pockets within Rocky Mountain National Park continued to smolder just days before the new year.

Heading into Friday’s game against Portales, the Coyote girls had won their last five games by an average of 33.2 points.

ALBUQUERQUE (AP) — Appeals courts this week dealt blows in two cases to plaintiffs seeking to recover millions of dollars in failed state investments from an alleged “pay-to-play” scheme involving supporters of for mer Gov. Bill Richardson. The state Court of Appeals on Wednesday upheld a ruling that invalidated portions of two lawsuits brought by whistle-

blower Frank Foy, the former chief investment officer for the Education Retirement Board. Separately, the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Denver declined a request to move from state to federal court a separate suit brought on behalf of retirees. In the whistleblower case, the state court upheld a ruling by District Judge Stephen Pfef fer regarding a 2007 law that

The judge said it’s unconstitutional to apply the law and its sanctions to activities that took place before the statute went into effect. Foy’s lawsuits alleged a scheme in which Richardson appointees steered investment business to political supporters.

Senate approves $60.4 billion Sandy aid bill, 62–32; GOP complains

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Senate on Friday approved a $60.4 billion emergency spending aid package for victims of Hurricane Sandy that had been backed by Senate Democrats. Democrats had to turn back Republican efforts to cut programs such as $150 million in fisheries aid that Republican lawmakers said was unrelated to the storm that hammered the East Coast late in October. The measure cleared the Senate

on a 62-32 vote, with 12 Republicans supporting the bill. Sen. Mark Pryor, DArk., was the only Democrat to vote against the bill, but he later switched his vote to support the measure. The bill faces uncertain prospects in the House, where GOP leaders appear reluctant to move quickly on a big spending bill in the final days of a lame duck session. Congress’ attention is focused on talks over the so-called fis-

cal cliff of tax hikes and automatic spending cuts. Sandy was blamed for at least 120 deaths and battered coastline areas from North Carolina to Maine. New York, New Jersey and Connecticut were the hardest hit states and suffered high winds, flooding and storm surges. Sandy damaged or destroyed more than 72,000 homes and businesses in New Jersey. In New York, 305,000 housing units were damaged or destroyed and more

than 265,000 businesses were affected. Senate Republicans failed on an amendment for a smaller package of about $24 billion in aid for Sandy, which was the most costly natural disaster since Hurricane Katrina in 2005 and one of the worst storms ever in the Northeast. House GOP leaders have not said how they plan to proceed. But House Appropriations Committee Chairman Hal Rogers of Ken-

tucky has said Congress should probably begin with a smaller aid package for immediate recovery needs and wait until more data can be collected about stor m damage before approving additional money next year. The measure includes $11.5 billion for the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s chief disaster relief fund and $17 billion

Will retailers rebound after weak holiday season?

WASHINGTON (AP) — As signs emerge that holiday sales this year grew at the weakest pace since 2008, investors are dumping retail stocks. Analysts are crowing about the missing “consumer engine” without which the economy may stagnate.

Many fear that the season’s weakness will reverberate throughout the economy: Stores will be saddled with excess merchandise, forcing them to slash prices and accept razor-thin profit margins. Demand will soften for goods up and down the supply chain, leading eventually to a decline in orders for factory goods and weaker manufacturing. Growth will slow.

Yet there are plenty of reasons to believe that these fears are overblown, some market-watchers argue. Auto sales are strong, as are some measures of consumer sentiment. Home values are rising, leaving fewer Americans on the brink of foreclosure and helping many feel more financially

secure. Above all, they point out, there is nothing permanent about the “fiscal cliff,” a set of tax hikes and spending cuts that will automatically take effect at the beginning of 2013 if lawmakers are unable to reach a deal to avert it. When the fiscal issue is addressed and demand bounces back, these contrarians argue, beatendown retail stocks may turn out to be this year’s best after-Christmas bargain. “There may be some caution ahead of the fiscal cliff” because of uncertainty about tax rates, “but it’s more of a road bump than any fundamental weakness,” says David Kelly, chief global strategist for JP Morgan Funds. He notes that a daily tracker of consumer sentiment, the Rasmussen Consumer Index, rose Friday to 98.9, the highest level measured since January 2008. Other measures of sentiment consumer appear weaker, but Kelly believes the Rasmussen

data is more reliable because it is updated daily. Most other indices rely on monthly surveys. The fiscal cliff isn’t the only reason consumers slowed down in November and December. Americans were buffeted by a series of events that made them more likely to stay home. Superstor m Sandy caused steep holiday sales declines in the Northeast and mid-Atlantic that made the national picture appear far weaker. The presidential election distracted people in November, the Newtown massacre in December. And the rising din about Washington’s current budget impasse left many people unsure what their 2013 household budgets will look like. The outcome: Holiday sales of electronics, clothing, jewelry and home goods in the two months before Christmas increased just 0.7 percent compared with last year, according to preliminary data released Tuesday by MasterCard Advisors SpendingPulse, which tracks holiday

week there earlier in November for the same condition. The cough was mostly resolved by the time he was moved to intensive care on Sunday for treatment of a fever that doctors were having difficulty controlling. “The Bushes thank everyone for their prayers and good wishes and, like their doctors, are cautiously optimistic that the current course of treatment will be ef fective,” McGrath said. On Thursday, a longtime Bush aide tried to quell concer n about Bush’s condition by saying the former president likely would advise well-

wishers to “put the harps back in the closet.” Jean Becker, Bush’s Houston chief of staf f, said the former president would likely be in the hospital for a while, noting his age and that “he had a terrible case of bronchitis which then triggered a series of complications.” Becker said “most of the civilized world” contacted her after word spread that Bush had been placed in intensive care unit. “Someday President George H.W. Bush might realize how beloved he is, but of course one of the reasons why he is so beloved is because he has no idea,” Becker said in the at-times lighthearted

spending across all payment methods. That’s the weakest holiday performance since 2008, when sales dropped several percent as the cresting financial crisis pushed the economy into a deep recession. Still, the nation’s largest retail trade group, the National Retail Federation, is sticking to its forecast that total sales for November and December will be up 4.1 percent from last year. A clearer picture will emerge next week as retailers like Macy’s and Target report monthly sales. That didn’t keep investors from reacting hastily to the grim early data. Retail stocks in the Standard & Poor’s 500 index fell 5.4 percent this month, while the broader index declined only 1 percent. Computer and electronics retailers fared the worst, sinking 10.3 percent. Sales of new homes rose in November to the fastest pace in two and a half years, the government said Thursday.

SANTA FE (AP) — New Mexico’s unemployment insurance system will be down most of next week as the state prepares to launch its new system. State labor officials are encouraging people to file claims and certify for benefits by Monday. The new system is scheduled to launch Jan. 6. Officials say the system should reduce fraud and eliminate the use of mail for much of the business

pending home sales index also rose last month to its highest level in two and a half years, the group said Friday. Consumer spending, to be sure, is a critical indicator of economic activity. It accounts for about 70 percent of the economy, so a true slowdown could have a painful ripple effect. That’s especially true in the final two months of the year, which contribute as much as 40 percent of annual sales for many retailers. Some analysts are warning that the pain for retailers has only just begun. Brian Sozzi, chief equities analyst at NBG Productions, says revenue results and fourth-quarter earnings forecasts, due out early next month, pose another threat to retail stocks. Sozzi recommends betting against some weaker brands, including teen apparel chain Aeropostale. According to Kelly and other market bulls, consumers haven’t meaningfully slowed their spending. They’re merely holding off as they wait for lawmakers

to craft a deal that would prevent some of the scheduled tax increases.

Analysts who doubt that spending will bounce back quite so quickly argue that consumers are still paying down debt and have less interest in shopping sprees, in part because median incomes are falling.

Despite the stronger housing market and other positive signs, “they’re going to take the opportunity to retrench, rather than buy stuff,” says Derrick Irwin, portfolio manager for Wells Fargo Advantage Funds.

Peter Tchir, manager of the hedge fund TF Market Advisors, says consumers may be shopping less because economic turbulence has helped people reassess the value of what they consume.

“We’ve overconsumed for so long ... how much do you really need to add?” he says. “To some extent, it’s healthy for Americans to live within their means. But clearly, this week, it’s not great for retail stocks.”

statement that made multiple references to jokes and the former president’s sense of humor. Updates on his health are being limited out of respect for the family, she said.

The family had hoped Bush would have been well enough to spend Christmas at home. His cough eased, but he developed a persistent fever. His condition has since been downgraded to “guarded.” The for mer president has been visited by family and friends, including longtime friend James Baker III, his former Secretary of State.

Police responded to a call from the National Guard located in the Roswell Armory, 1 W. Earl Cummings Loop, Thursday, where subjects gained entry to the yard after cutting a lock on the west gate. The subjects entered a High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicle, or Humvee, they use as a maintenance vehicle. The thieves cut the locks on three tool carriers and eight tool boxes and removed all the Snap-on tools from the bays. The subjects also took a TIG welder and a fire extinguisher. The representative of the National Guard reporting the incident was unsure how many other tools may have been stolen, but will complete an inventory and report the results to the police.

He left his dog inside his truck, which was parked on the 2700 block of Largo Drive. His family members have not seen nor heard from him since that time. Police urge people who know of his whereabouts to contact the RPD at 575-6246770.


HOUSTON (AP) — Oilfield services company Baker Hughes Inc. says the number of rigs actively exploring for oil and natural gas in the U.S. fell this week by 11, to 1,763. Baker Hughes, based in Houston, said Friday that 1,327 rigs were exploring for oil and 431 were searching for gas. Five were listed as miscellaneous. A year ago, Baker Hughes counted 2,007 rigs. Of the major oil- and gas-producing states, Alaska and West Virginia gained one rig each. Texas declined by eight rigs and California and Louisiana each dropped two. Arkansas, Colorado, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania and Wyoming were unchanged.

for community development block grants, much of which would help homeowners repair or replace their homes. Another $11.7 billion would help repair New York City’s subways and other mass transit damage and protect them from future storms. Some $9.7 billion would go toward the government’s flood insurance program. The Army Corps of Engineers would receive $5.3 billion to mitigate flood future risks and rebuild damaged projects.

Senate Republicans said much of the spending in the Democratic bill was for

recent negotiations he said he could accept $400,000. The two sides also confronted a divide over estate taxes. Obama favors a higher tax than is currently in ef fect, but one senior Republican, Sen. Jon Kyl of Arizona, said he’s “totally dead set” against it. Speaking of fellow GOP lawmakers, he said they harbor more opposition to an increase in the estate tax than to letting taxes on income and investments rise at upper levels. Also likely to be included in the negotiations are taxes on dividends and capital gains, both of which

were stretched thin at times as the nation saw more than 9.2 million acres go up in flames.

Rather than being an anomaly, the National Interagency Fire Center said this year was more consistent with the kind of fire seasons seen over the past decade.

“Since 2002, with only a couple of exceptions, fire seasons have tended to be more active, with larger acreages burned and more severe conditions than any other decade since accurate

are scheduled to rise with the new year. Also the alternative minimum tax, which, if left unchanged, could hit an estimated 28 million households for the first time with an average increase of more than $3,000. In addition, Obama and Democrats want to prevent the expiration of unemployment benefits for about 2 million long-term jobless men and women, and there is widespread sentiment in both parties to shelter doctors from a 27 percent cut in Medicare fees. The White House has shown increased concern about a possible doubling

records were first kept in fire center 1960,” spokesman Randy Eardley explained in a review. The 8 million-acre mark has been surpassed six times over the past decade. Between 1992 and 2001, there was only one year in which more than 7 million acres burned. Experts say the measure of burned acreage mostly reflects long-term conditions and trends on the landscape. Statistics from the national fire center show

information from Animal Control when there’s an abuse case to take to the vet,” she explained. Sammye says she has been blessed by finding a sympathetic veterinarian, Becky Washburn-Brown, of Capitan. Sammye gets daily reports on the dogs she has tur ned over to her vet’s care. “Becky helps place many dogs in new homes.” Sammye is actively looking for foster homes. She would like to see more adoption events, such as last year’s Adopt-a-thon. Like many, Sammye advocates responsible neutering. She points to the Animal Services statistics. “The figures are staggering. In November, 562 animals were put down. Only 45 were adopted. Everyone in Roswell expects Animal Control to clean up their mess.” She plans to take her campaign to City Hall, where she hopes to persuade city government to

become one of the cities in the No Kill Nation. The organization No Kill Nation provides resources and support for local and state governments, and private and municipal shelters that work under a no-kill policy. She would like to see the city adopt licensing of dog breeders. Already there is a move afoot to license breeders in Roswell, which would also include a premises check. “A lot of dogs are inbred. These people don’t really want a pet; they just want to make money.” She has two dogs ready to adopt. She has a contract and home checks for her adoptables and asks only for reimbursement of neutering fees. She would like other animal lovers and potential “foster humans” to contact her via her Facebook page, Doggy Saviors, which she says can be found by a simple Facebook search. Sammye monitors it every day.

projects unrelated to Sandy, such as $150 million for fisheries disasters that could go to Alaska as well as Gulf Coast and New England states. Sen. Tom Coburn, R-Okla., sought to strip the fisheries funding, but his amendment failed. To court votes, Democrats last week broadened some of their bill’s provisions to cover damage from Hurricane Isaac, which struck the Gulf Coast earlier this year. A provision was added to the $2.9 billion allotted to Army Corps of Engineers projects to reduce future flooding risks; the coverage area for that program will now include areas hit by Isaac in addition to Sandy. Democrats also shifted $400 million into a commu-

nity development program for regions suffering disasters, beyond areas struck by Sandy.

of milk prices if a farm bill is not passed in the next few days, although it is not clear whether that issue, too, might be included in the talks. One Republican who was briefed on the White House meeting said Boehner made it clear he would leave in place spending cuts scheduled to take effect unless alternative savings were included in any compromise to offset them. If he prevails, that would defer politically difficult decisions on curtailing government benefit programs like Medicare until 2013. Success was far from guaranteed in an atmos-

phere of political mistrust — even on a slimmed-down deal that postponed hard decisions about spending cuts into 2013 — in a Capitol where lawmakers grumbled about the likelihood of spending the new year holiday working. In a brief appearance in the White House briefing room, Obama referred to “dysfunction in Washington,” and said the American public is “not going to have any patience for a politically self-inflicted wound to our economy. Not right now.” If there is no compromise, he said he expects Reid to put legislation on


the floor to prevent tax increases on the middle class and extend unemployment benefits — an implicit challenge to Republicans to dare to vote against what polls show is popular. The president also booked a highly unusual appearance on Meet the Press for Sunday, yet another indication of his determination to retain the political high ground that came with his re-election. The guest list for the White House meeting included Reid, McConnell, Boehner and House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi of California.

attribute some of that to the lessons lear ned in 2011. On state and private land in New Mexico, fewer than 460 fires burned 40 square miles in 2012. A year ago, 1,125 fires blackened more than 1,030 square miles and nearly two-thirds of those fires were caused by people. “All that said, our overall fire danger remained very high throughout the year,” said forestry spokesman Dan Ware. “The big factors in the lack of acres burned were heightened public

awareness and the fact that because of a lack of good moisture, there wasn’t much grass or brush to burn on the east side of the state.”

“The court struck down an extremely important statute that could cost taxpayers millions of dollars,” he told the newspaper. He said both of Foy’s lawsuits also alleged misconduct after 2007. Foy initially filed a lawsuit in 2008 against Chicago-based Vanderbilt Financial Trust and its related companies over $90 million in failed investments by the Educational Retirement Board and the State Investment Office. The investments in com-

plex mortgage securities called collateralized debt obligations were approved in 2006. Vanderbilt executives later contributed at least $15,100 to Richardson’s failed campaign for the 2008 Democratic presidential nomination. Foy’s lawsuit was revised to add alleged fraud involving $153 million in other Vanderbilt investments by the state in 2004 and 2005. A second lawsuit by Foy involved states investments in hedge funds and private equity funds.

If the dry trend continues over parts of the central U.S. and into Colorado and New Mexico, forecasters at the National Interagency Fire Center said there’s a possibility of seeing an early start to the next fire season. The other concern is that snow pack in some of the region’s mountain ranges is far below normal.

It's easy, all we need is your email address and you will go home with a temporary user name and password enrollment form. “It’s a service like online banking, but for your eye care”. The new Patient Portal is an optional, confidential, secure, easy to use website hosted by NextMD that will provide patients (18 years and older only) with 24 hour access to information pertaining to their care at any Eye Associates of New Mexico location. This includes their visit summary and any other documents we send to their account.

These features are available now:

•Access a copy of your visit summary •Research educational information regarding certain eye conditions

In the future, once Patient Portal is fully implemented, patients will also be able to:

•Correspond online with medical representatives from the practice •Request appointments •View medication lists and request prescription refills •View current statements and pay your bills •Complete required registration forms prior to your appointment

Messenger of poor economy forgotten by speakers

Proverbially shooting the messenger is a handy and useless response to unwanted news. The statistical messenger got it in two recent attempts to explain New Mexico’s poor economic performance. The poor statistical quality of the job numbers was the target of one analysis, as if properly built statistics would create jobs. (Folks in the southeast, you have my permission to giggle at all this.) Reliable people say the job statistics, statistically, are indeed of poor quality. A second article attacked statistical procedures, which led to naming New Mexico the leader of states in an economic “death spiral” due to poor economies and state finances. The point missed is that the problem is the economy. At the Dec. 12 New Mexico Tax Research Institute conference, elected officials and “stakeholders” avoided the messenger




attack by keeping to the narrowest topics, money for the speaker’s group being typical. Exceptions were Sen. John Arthur Smith, who took his usual high road of reality, and Terri Cole of the Greater Albuquerque Chamber of Commerce with a demonstration of the Albuquerque-andrest-of-the-state problem. Cole began her remarks on “what our philosophy will be” with an analogy to the University of New Mexico’s football improvement in 2012. Leader of the Albuquerque chamber’s staff for 29 years, Cole “forgot” (I suppose)

Roswell Daily Record

that New Mexico State offers football and a quite different football analogy. “New Mexico has to find its unique competitive edge. This is not rocket science,” Cole said. Then, somehow, Cole’s vision became bounded by the Albuquerque city limits. She paid the usual homage to Albuquerque’s “unique capabilities” — UNM, Sandia National Laboratories (which is partly in California), and UNM’s STC, the technology transfer entity that might be deserving of praise someday. Then Cole got all New Agey. Yes, do jobs, but go to a higher level and create a community, “an amazing community,” replete with entrepreneurship and innovation. Or something like that. Beverlee McClure of the Association of Commerce and Industry, the statewide chamber of commerce, set up Cole’s higher level. If we’re not talking about jobs,

we’re not talking about anything, McClure said. We need to know the “true facts” but don’t have the data to know. McClure offered no answers to this circular dilemma. Regina Romero of the New Mexico Municipal League chose the see-no-evil economic approach. “Our economy is not moving very fast,” Romero said. (Uh, yes, and its direction is down.) In Las Cruces the economy moves faster. In the New Mexico Business Outlook newsletter, NMSU economist Chris Erickson says, “New Mexico continues to suffer a double dip recession as measured by total nonagricultural employment, seeing a 0.07 percent decline year-over-year employment for October. Employment in Las Cruces declined by a shocking 3.7 percent between October 2011 and October 2012 ...” For the Municipal League, more prosaic priorities prevail. From the 2013 Legislature, the league wants local government revenue

and taxing authority protected. The protection path drew Paul Gutierrez of the Association of Counties. Not that counties are anti-business, Gutierrez said, but they “oppose any reduction to our revenues.” (Well, first things first.) Sen. John Arthur Smith, Deming Democrat and Legislative Finance Committee chair, stuck to operational matters, observing, “We have not had a tax policy” since the Blue Ribbon Tax Commission collapsed 10 years ago. Tax breaks for new businesses may ignore companies already here. He cited the tax break given to Union Pacific but denied to Burlington Northern Santa Fe, which has 1,300 employees in New Mexico with salary and benefits averaging more than $100,000 annually. (Who knew?) Fairness was Smith’s message. He closed with a tantalizing tax tidbit of a gas tax hike. At least Smith is thinking. Few others are. © New Mexico News Services 2012

World Opinion United Nations

When the usual jackals of the United Nations expressed their rabid hatred of western sensibilities in November regarding Israel, Canada proudly voted against them. That said, this siding with Israel by Canada did not stop Prime Minister Stephen Harper from later phoning Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to chide him for reviving settlement plans east of Jerusalem that have been plaguing peace talks since the outset. But when the U.N. formally upgraded the Palestinian Authority from a non-member observer to a non-member observer state, it was only throwing more oil on an already slippery slope. Any chance of peace between Israel and the terrorist-controlled Hamas government using the Gaza region of Palestine as a launching pad for Israeli-bound missiles, was set back dramatically. It was a sad day, particularly since some usually thoughtful nations — France in particular — voted with the Communist big hitters of Russia and China, while despotic little regimes voted in their usual anti-Israel, antianything-western way. We stand firmly with Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird, who was in New York to voice his opposition to the U.N.’s resolution, that such a “reward” should not come before a real peace is negotiated. Just because the PLO’s transformation into the Palestinian Authority gave it a modicum of undue credibility, now is also not the time to look upon Hamas as a legitimate government, despite the allusion that it was democratically elected. To us, it is still a terrorist organization, and the Palestinian Authority is still the PLO, and bent on the destruction of Israel. A few months before Palestinian Authority chairman Mahmoud Abbas got his muchcoveted U.N. observer state status, his vitriol against Israel was in full rage, warning the international community siding with Israel to back off or else. “Don’t order us to recognize a Jewish state,” Abbas said. “We won’t accept it.” And for this he gets rewarded by the U.N.? What a farce. Guest Editorial Toronto Sun

South Korea-Japan relations

South Korea will soon be led by its first female president, Park Geun-hye of the ruling Saenuri Party. In the presidential election held on Dec. 19 she defeated her opponent, Moon Jae-in of the Democratic United Party. South Korean voters sought “change within stability.” With the advancement of Samsung Electronics Co. and other businesses, South Korea appears robust. In reality, however, it is standing at a crossroads. Incumbent President Lee Myung-bak put importance on economic growth and adopted policies that give consideration to such conglomerates as the Samsung and Hyundai groups. However, the fruits of the economic growth did not spread widely among the public. In South Korea, the aging of society and the declining birthrate are advancing at a pace faster than in Japan. But South Korea’s social security systems, such as pension programs, remain fragile. More people feel the gap in society is growing wider. For North Korea, Park advocates a policy of dialogue after judging that incumbent President Lee Myung-bak’s hard-line policy did not lead to improved relations. It is important for South Korea to keep in step with Japan and the United States on diplomatic policy. In South Korea, there are concerns about the historical recognition of Liberal Democratic Party President Shinzo Abe, who will become Japan’s next prime minister. Abe emphasized that he will put importance on the Japan-U.S. alliance. Along with South Korea, which is also a U.S. ally, cooperation of the three countries forms the basis of stability in East Asia.

Semper Fi, unless it’s not convenient

Jon Hammar saw combat in Iraq and Afghanistan, but his most brutal foreign experience was in Mexico. Last August, the 27-year-old former Marine corporal was incarcerated by Mexican authorities in Matamoros for trying to register an antique shotgun with customs agents. Foolishly, Cpl. Hammar followed instructions given to him by U.S. Border Patrol agents in Brownsville, Texas. He registered the gun with them and brought the paperwork to the Mexicans to get their stamp of approval in order to carry the gun through the country. Hammar and a friend were driving a Win-


DEAR DOCTOR K: My daughter was diagnosed with complex regional pain syndrome after a car accident. She’s in a lot of pain. What do you recommend? DEAR READER: Complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) is a long-lasting condition that causes severe, constant, burning pain in the affected arm or leg. As in your daughter’s case, it usually starts after an injury or other trauma. In the last 20 years we’ve learned a lot about what goes wrong in the body with this condition, and about good treatments for it. But we still don’t have a fundamental understanding of it, or perfect treatments. What we know is that CRPS is triggered by nerve damage in

injured tissue. The damaged nerves become overly sensitive. Pain signals become more painful. The brain experiences common stimuli, such as light touch, as being painful; stroking the skin with a feather hurts! The skin in the affected arm or leg often becomes rough, thick and swollen, and the muscles lose bulk. Because of

rupt CEDES prison anyway. There he was threatened by other inmates and told by guards that he could buy his way out of the hellhole by paying money to the “right people.” Hammar’s parents, who live in South Florida, immediately contacted the State Department and were told to be patient. And so they were. Three months later, Hammar was still incarcerated and had not even seen a judge, and things were becoming increasingly desperate. That’s when his parents gave up on the State Department and contacted the

pain and weakness, the arm or leg is used less often, and this can weaken the underlying bones. The earlier treatment begins, the better. Maintaining movement is an important goal. This is usually accomplished with physical therapy and, eventually, a regular exercise program. Medications that may help manage pain include: — Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) and other pain relievers. — Capsaicin, a cream or ointment thought to interrupt or “distract” pain signals. — Certain antidepressants and anticonvulsants used in See DR.

media. When the story crossed my desk, I found it hard to believe. Cpl. Hammar had served his country honorably, retur ned to the USA with post-traumatic stress disorder, been treated for nine months in California and simply wanted a vacation after his ordeal. It was obvious that he was being held on bogus charges, and the State Department seemed impotent. When we asked Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for a comment, she refused to say

anything about the case. A few of her deputies visited Hammar in prison, but the official line was that State could do nothing more. Sen. Bill Nelson and Rep. Ileana RosLehtinen raised some hell about the situation, but things continued to deteriorate. Mexican authorities actually chained Hammar to his bed. Another inmate sent a picture of that out to the press. In mid-December, the Fox News White House correspondent asked press secretary Jay Carney about the case. President Barack Obama’s spokesman looked perplexed and said he did not know anything about it. As unbelievable as that sounds, I believe that Carney was telling the truth. And by telling one truth, Carney indicated another truth: Neither Obama nor Secretary of State Clinton had come to the aid of an American combat veteran who was being abused by Mexican authorities. Disgusted by our apathetic government, I took the case directly to the government of Mexico. On national television, I bluntly told the new Mexican presidente, Enrique Pena Nieto, that if he did not release Hammar by Christmas, I would lead a boycott of Mexican

tourism and products. The next day, Hammar was released after a Mexican judge ruled there had been no intent to commit a crime. The ordeal cost the Hammar family tens of thousands of dollars in legal fees and untold emotional damage. Thankfully, the corporal did arrive home to South Florida in time to have a nice Christmas with his family. But this story is a cautionary tale for any American traveling outside the USA. If you get into trouble, you will be essentially on your own, even if you are a combat veteran. Our leaders in Washington are basically bureaucrats with short attention spans. If they couldn’t work up the energy to help Jon Hammar, they are not going to help you. True leadership means helping those who are powerless and sincerely need help. That takes time and energy. President Abraham Lincoln set aside one day a week to answer calls for help from the folks. The current administration would not answer a desperate call for months. As for Mexico, it remains a corrupt country hostile to the rule of law. Let the buyer beware.

If this is effective, a procedure may be done to permanently destroy those nerves. A few newer treatments are available for severe cases. One entails implanting a device to stimulate the spinal cord or nearby nerves. The other involves injecting a drug that relaxes blood vessels into the space near the spinal cord. These treatments do not always work and may cause complications. But if nothing else has helped, the benefits may exceed the risks. Unfortunately, about half of people with CRPS continue to experience pain despite treatment. It appears that smokers are at greater risk of getting CRPS if they have an injury. It has not been deter mined if stopping smoking improves the symptoms of CRPS, but most experts think it would. (Dr. Komaroff is a physician and professor at Harvard Medical School.

Isaiah 40:8 “The grass withers, the flower fades, but the word of our God stands forever”. NASB

So we all survived Christmas and now we have the final countdown of the year 2012. It is amazing to me how quick a year can fly by. And recognizing this through the lens of our verse today, it helps us remember that everything of this word will eventually wither up, and fade away. We experience beautiful things in this life, but nothing is as beautiful and precious as the Word of God. It’s such a comfort to know that even when everything comes to an end, even this life, the Word of our God stands forever. I guess that’s why the psalmist said in Psalm 119:11 “Thy word I have treasured in my heart…” because the Word is the only thing that stands the test of time and is sure”. - Chris Mullennix, Calvary Baptist Church ANGLICAN

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

ARIES (March 21-April 19)  Tension builds. Choose to take a muchneeded, unscheduled day off. You enjoy spontaneity. You also might have some observations to think about. A day away from the daily grind could be more than a mood-changer. Tonight: Take care of yourself first. TAURUS (April 20-May 20)      Keep plans light and easy. Write a few thank-you notes, work on your New Year’s wishes and make or confirm plans to greet 2013. Take care of some errands, but above all else, make sure that you get to relax before the next round. Tonight: Join friends for dinner. GEMINI (May 21-June 20)  You might be juggling your finances or find yourself having to rob Peter to pay Paul. Stop and take a hard look at the situation. Is there any way you could avoid this scenario? Even if the path is rocky, it could be well worth it. Tonight: Fun does not have to cost you anything. CANCER (June 21-July 22)  Enjoy others’ attention, but don’t forget about someone who could be far more in need of it, and who could use some emotional support as well. You have put in a lot of effort into the recent holiday. You need time for yourself, too. Tonight: Wherever you go, people are all smiles. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)  Step away from the daily grind for a bit. Spend the day alone or with one other person. Everyone needs time to recharge his or her battery, and you’ll need this even more as you interact with others. Screen calls, and play it low-key. Tonight: Suddenly, you feel revived. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)     Get together with friends. The activity is not important, as long as you do not assume the lead. Plans could change quite suddenly if you are single. You could meet that special someone very soon. This person might not be like anyone else you know. Tonight: Don’t make it late. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)  Deal with an older friend or relative directly. You have been avoiding this situation. You could continue this same avoidance game, or start the new year on the right path. A domestic change might be unavoidable. Don’t stress out — just accept it. Tonight: To the wee hours. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)     Detach from your immediate surroundings, as you could be overtired and withdrawn. Honor a need to revitalize yourself. Hop in the car, and go for a drive. Stop at a favorite flea

age of 33.2 points. Against the Rams, however, things were as tight as can be, but the result was the same for Roswell as the Coyotes snuck past Portales 32-31 in the championship game of the Goddard High School Holiday Classic. Roswell led 18-13 heading into the second half,

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Suspended New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton has agreed in principle to a multiyear contract extension, according to two people familiar with the deal. The people told The Associated Press about the deal Friday on condition of anonymity because it has not been signed and final details regarding the length of the contract and financial compensation are still being worked out. Payton was due to begin his seventh season as the Saints’ head coach in 2012 before being suspended for the whole season by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell in connection with the NFL’s bounty investigation. Payton signed an extension in 2011, but Goodell objected to certain language in that deal, leaving Payton’s future uncertain until the deal was reached Friday. The agreement was first reported by Fox Sports. Payton is the only coach in Saints history to win a Super Bowl, a title earned at the end of the 2009 season. But his legacy was tarnished by the NFL’s bounty probe, as Goodell ruled that Payton failed to exert proper institutional control over a cash-for-hits bounty program run by former defensive coordinator Gregg Williams from 2009-2011. Although the Saints objected to the characterization of what coaches and players have said was nothing more than a performance pool for big plays, Goodell suspended Payton for the entire season. The commissioner also suspended general manager Mickey Loomis for half of the season and assistant head coach Joe Vitt for six games. Payton is 62-34 in regular-season games as Saints head coach and 5-3 in the postseason. During the three seasons before his suspension, the Saints won 41 regular-season and playoff games combined, more than any other team in the NFL. Payton has primarily handled the offense in New Orleans, teaming up with quarterback Drew Brees to break numerous records. The NFL records set by the Saints in 2011 included yards passing by a team (5,505) and a quarterback (5,476). The Saints also set a record for total offensive yards with 7,474.

that gave Roswell a 27-25 lead, but 20 seconds later Portales answered with a bunny from Kambrey Blakey. After the Blakey deuce, Roswell tur ned the ball over on its next two posses-

sions and the Rams made them pay, turning those turnovers into four points and a 31-27 lead with 2:59 left in the game.

With Sweet on the bench for nearly 12 minutes of game time with three fouls, Piedra Vista turned a 17-14 deficit into a 45-35 lead and held off a late Rocket surge in a thrilling 66-64 win on Friday in the Poe Corn Invitational. Sweet scored six points in the first quarter as the Rockets raced out to a 1511 lead and, at the start of the second quarter, Sweet continued his dominating play as he took a pass from Trevor Cooper and made a bunny to push the lead to six. After a field goal from Piedra Vista’s Isaiah Valdez, Sweet picked up his third foul on the other end and went to the bench with 6:50 left in the second. Goddard kept things close in the second quarter, but a layup from Valdez at the buzzer gave Piedra Vista a three-point halftime lead and momentum heading See GHS, Page B2

Roswell coach Britt Cooper said that his team wore down Artesia. “They know what we do and we know them pretty well and sometimes that negates itself,” he said. “I thought we played all right. it was a physical game and See CRUISE, Page B2

Va. Tech edges Rutgers in OT in Russell Bowl

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — After one of its most unfulfilling seasons in recent memory, Virginia Tech desperately wanted to avoid its first losing season since 1992. Mission accomplished. Cody Journell kicked a 22-yard field goal on the first possession of overtime to help the Hokies beat Rutgers 13-10 in the Russell Athletic Bowl on Friday night. Virginia Tech won its final three games to finish 7-6. “Not everything in life is real smooth,” Hokies coach Frank Beamer said. “These players worked hard and how they reacted to adversity and to disappointment and when all of them wanted to do better — they kept together.” Rutgers (9-4) had a chance to tie it in overtime, but Nick Borgese missed a 42yard field-goal attempt to the right. The loss ended a run of five straight bowl victories for the Scarlet Knights and kept them from recording their first double-digit win season since 2006. The win also was the Hokies’ 12th straight victory over their former Big East Conference rival. Virginia Tech trailed 10-0 at the half, then rallied in the final 30 minutes thanks to some timely turnovers and offense. Quarterback Logan Thomas struggled in the first half and finished with a pair of interceptions, but also had 192 yards passing and the game’s only passing touchdown. “I can’t commend the defense more,” Thomas said. “The entire season that’s kind of how it’s been. I have to give a shout out to (linebacker) Bruce Taylor because he played his tail off the entire game. It felt like he was in the backfield making a tackle on every play.” Taylor finished the night with a team-high 11 tackles to lead a defense that held Rutgers to 67 yards in the second half. Virginia Tech cornerback Antone Exum, selected the most valuable player of the game, picked off Gary Nova’s pass early in

in and that was something definitely positive. It got our confidence up.” The Rockets’ strong offensive play continued in the second quarter as they outscored the Warriors 188 to take a 42-23 lead into the break. Ruidoso wouldn’t go away, however, as the Warriors won the third quarter 20-10 and with a runner from Daniela Puente at the start of the final quarter, Ruidoso trailed by just nine points. After the Puente bucket, Goddard responded with a

Roswell Daily Record

run of its own to take control of the game. Kristen Stevenson and Abbie Blach each split a pair from the charity stripe to push the lead back to double digits and after a Ruidoso turnover, Blach hit a jumper from the elbow to make it a 56-43 game. Another Warrior turnover on the next possession led to another Blach deuce and Ruidoso’s third-straight turnover led to a pair of Martinez free throws that pushed the Rocket lead to 60-43 with 5:43 left in the game.


the fourth quarter to set up the tying score. He said though the offense took its lumps early, he was never down on their effort. “That’s just the way the game panned out,” Exum said. “We never lose hope with the guys on the other side of the ball. Our job, honestly, is just to go out there and get as many three-and-outs as possible and give the most opportunities as we can to put points on the board. “We did a good job of that tonight.” Rutgers seemed to be in command until the opening minutes of the fourth quarter, when turnovers and a sudden surge from the Hokies’ offense quickly turned the momentum. Down 10-0, Virginia Tech took over after Rutgers missed field goal and moved into Scarlet Knights’ territory for the first time in the game on a 32-yard pass from Thomas to Dyrell Roberts. Thomas then found Corey Fuller for a 25-yard strike on the next play, before the drive stalled on the 8. It forced the Hokies to settle for Journell’s 25-yard field goal. Exum intercepted Nova’s pass on the ensuing drive, giving the Hokies a first down on the Rutgers 21. The Hokies found the end zone three plays later on a 21-yard touchdown pass from Thomas to Fuller with 10:56 left as steady rain began to fall. “We finally caught them off balance,” Thomas said. “We finally got them uncomfortable. ... I just had to put the ball out there for him.” Virginia Tech defensive end Tyrel Wilson then came up with the defense’s second turnover of the night, recovering a fumble inside the Scarlet Knights 40 after Nova dropped a snap while lined up in the shotgun. An intentional grounding penalty on Thomas forced a punt, though, with less than 7 minutes to play. They got another chance a few series later, only to see Journell’s 51-yard field goal come up short with 2:20 showing on the clock. Rutgers punted, but got it back just a play later when Thomas’ pass was intercepted by Brandon Jones. “Two tremendous defensive performances, and one of the better defensive performances I’ve seen from Rutgers players this season,” Rutgers coach Kyle Flood said.

into the second half. The Panthers stayed hot to start the second half as Steven Ty Jaquez nailed a 3, 11 seconds into the third to give Piedra Vista a six-point lead. The Rockets didn’t let the Panthers blow the game open, however, as a pair of freebies from Cody French and a floater from Austin Rader kept the game close. Rocket coach Kevin Jones said that it was tough losing Sweet, but his team did a good job of keeping the game close. “It was big (when Sweet picked up his third foul),” he said. “It hurts every time you don’t have one of your major forces in the game. The team did good though. We didn’t let it get out of hand. We kind of hung around and made a great run back.” After a layup, Jaquez gave Piedra Vista a 45-35 lead with 3:12 left in the third, Goddard called timeout and put Sweet back in the game. The senior post instantly made an impact when he hit a deuce and, after a Panther turnover, Sweet got the ball on the low block and kicked it out to

“It’s unfortunate that we came out on the wrong side of the game, and squander that kind of performance as a result.”

Mark McCool, who drilled a 3 to make it a five point game. Although the Rockets trailed by nine entering the final quarter, momentum had clearly swung back to Goddard. Trailing 55-47, Sweet made a layup while getting fouled and, after his patented “Hulk-Smash” reaction to the hoop, drilled the free throw to make it a 55-50 game with 5:51 left in the fourth. Two consecutive Piedra Vista turnovers led to field goals from French, and Sweet cut the lead to one, but Piedra Vista responded with a pair of free throws to make it a 57-54 game. The Panthers wouldn’t score again for nearly three minutes, as Goddard seemed to take control of the game with an 8-0 run. After the free throws from the Panthers, Ricky Roybal hit a jumper and, after a defensive stop on the other end, the Rockets reclaimed the lead with a floater from French. Goddard grew its lead to three when Ornelas found Rader wide open under the basket, making it a 60-57 game and, on the other end, Ornelas came up with a steal and

Roswell got momentum back when Bolanos drilled a 3 that made it a one-point game. Coyote coach Joe Carpenter said that Bolanos, who ignited a stagnant Roswell offense in the first half with five assists, said that Bolanos held his team together against the Rams. “She held it together (for us) as a senior,” he said. “She lost her cool a couple of times and we had to reel her back in, but she is one of those kids where, if she is on, she is going to be as tough as anybody. She was on a bit today.” Bolanos said that her mindset was to be a leader for her team.

Ruidoso wouldn’t get closer than 11 the rest of the way. Torres said that he was pleased with how the game started, but not with how it ended. “We just didn’t have that killer instinct. I told my kids at the half, that good teams will let a team like that back in the game and that is what we did,” he said. “Great teams have that killer instinct.

converted it into a fast break layup, giving the Rockets a 62-57 lead with 1:59 left. The Panthers wouldn’t go away, however, as three offensive rebounds led to a 3-pointer from Armijo. On the ensuing Goddard possession, Rader drained a jumper to push the lead back to four. Two Piedra Vista possessions later, Jaquez drilled a triple with 23 seconds left to make it a 64-63 game. After failing to come up with a steal with its press, Piedra Vista fouled Rader with 10 seconds left, but he missed the front end of a 1-and-1, giving the Panthers one more chance. With Goddard only having two team fouls in the second half, Jones said the plan was to foul before the Panthers had a chance to shoot, but with his back to the basket, Armijo was able to draw the foul why attempting a 3 with three seconds left. The senior guard drained all three freebies, giving Piedra Vista a 6664 lead. Goddard was able to get a good look at the end for the win, but McCool’s 3-pointer from the corner was long, securing the Panther win.

“(My mindset was to) step up and be a senior and lead your team and be the captain my coach put on me,” she said. Two possessions later, Roswell reclaimed the lead when Myla Brown, the MVP of the Holiday Classic, got fouled on a runner and cooly nailed both freebies, giving her team a 32-31 lead with 1:17 left. After a few timeouts by Portales on the of fensive end, the Rams attempted to feed the ball down low, but Blakey missed a contested bunny and Roswell’s Georgia Lynn Eldridge snagged the rebound with 10 seconds left. Roswell kept things interesting, however, when the Coyotes turned the ball over on the ensuing inbounds play and the final few seconds provided plenty of dramatics

first half to give us that cushion we needed, because if it would have got any closer, I think it could have went either way. “I loved the way we started the game, didn’t really like the way we finished it defensively, or offensively.” Blach led Goddard with 18 points, while Zumbrun chipped in with 16. Martinez added 11 points for the Rockets. Blach was named to the all-tournament team for Goddard.

as Sheraya Cox’s jumper from the corner went halfway down, before rattling out. A Ram player was able to come away with the ball and her putback bounced off the rim twice before falling har mlessly to the ground as the final buzzer sounded. Carpenter said that winning a close game was big for his team. “We haven’t won too many close games this year. It has been a blowout one way or the other, so winning a close game means a lot for our kids,” he said. Bolanos finished with nine points, six assists and two steals, while Gali Sanchez led Roswell with 10 points. Brown and Bolanos were selected for the all-tournament team for Roswell (7-4).

Is there any way to motivate him without nagging? I feel I may be selling myself short by being with someone who is content to sit on the couch. On the other hand, I have dated more ambitious men who turned out to be jerks. Must women have to choose between nice guys who finish last and dominating power mongers? ASKING TOO MUCH? IN SAN FRANCISCO


DEAR ASKING TOO MUCH?: The male sex is not divided into two categories — nice guys who finish last and power mongers. If you look around, you will see there are control freaks who finish last, and nice men who work hard at their jobs or professions and are successful. If you feel you are selling yourself short by being with Lance, then you probably are. If you would like to motivate him, tell him you think you need to be with someone who has more direction in life. If that doesn’t galvanize him to action, nothing will. #####

DEAR ABBY: I have been dating “Lance” for about two years now. We communicate well, have great chemistry and are very affectionate with each other. Lance is kind, creative (he’s an artist) and considerate. However, he lacks ambition. I’m a big thinker who wants big things in life. I have traveled extensively and am very involved in the world of academia. Lance works in a bar three nights a week and plays video games when I’m not around. I know from our conversations that he is intelligent and capable of doing so much more.

The Wizard of Id

DEAR ABBY: After being in a four-year relationship with an alcoholic who was emotionally, verbally and at times physically abusive, I got out. I have moved back with my parents to save money so I can get my own place. When I told my mother about some of the incidents that happened, she said, “I know how you can be.” My father seemed more supportive — until recently. My ex has a son I grew close to, as did my parents. Last week, I found out my ex had contacted them and his son will be coming here for a visit. Abby, I don’t want my ex to know anything about my current life! I’m afraid he’s trying to manipulate and torment me while I try to move forward. I feel hurt and angry at my parents for not respecting my feelings. I can’t seem to get through to my mom, and Dad just looked at me and said, “Well, YOU’RE the one who stayed for so long!” I don’t know if I can forgive them for this. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. HURT DAUGHTER IN MASSACHUSETTS

PULCTS ROMMYE Answer here: Yesterday’s

I’ll try. When people ar e attracted to — and stay with — a partner who is emotionally, verbally and sometimes physically abusive, it’s sometimes because there was dysfunction in their upbringing. You don’t say how long you have been staying with your parents, but if there is no alternative, you need to stick to your plan and stay until you have enough money to rent a place of your own.

Family Circus

When the boy arrives, greet him warmly and spend as little time there as possible. Give him no information about your work or your social life other than to say you are doing fine and are very happy. And as soon as you have enough money to establish some independence, get out of there.

P.S. If you haven’t already joined an Al-Anon group, I recommend it. Attend some meetings before the boy arrives, and don’t keep that a secret while he’s there.

Dear Heloise: My husband thought we should share a family tradition with your readers because he loves it. Our family lives all around the U.S., and we are always trying to find time to visit. Before we leave, we hide little folded (and dated) NOTES around their homes with messages about our stay, our love of them, wishing we could see them again soon, and silly thoughts about little things that will mean something to them. We put them in their car glove box, cereal boxes, taped to the back of bottles, between their DVDs, in linen closets between towels, in the freezer, in bathroom drawers, in winter boots (leave these in summer so they will find them months down the road), in pockets of coats and under lamp bottoms. The notes are warm reminders of the visit and usually bring smiles. I found one recently in my home that was 12 years old. My sisters started this for our mother when she would feel sad as we were all about to leave. She loved it! Skeeter Gurzick, Omaha, Neb.

Charming! I sometimes slip notes into my husband’s luggage when he leaves for a trip. Surprise! Heloise #####

Dear Heloise: When I’m cooking a meal, not everything is ready at the same time. First is the baked potatoes. I keep them hot by putting them in an oven mitt. They stay hot and ready to serve with the rest of the meal. Ken Leach, The Villages, Fla.

Potatoes can be used in so many ways and often are a part of a meal or even a meal in itself. One of the potato recipes I enjoy the most is a recipe that my mother, the original Heloise (1919-1977), brought back from China in the 1940s. It is Heloise’s Peking (Double-Baked, Stuffed) Potatoes. If you would like to try it, send for my pamphlet Heloise’s Main Dishes and More. All you need to do is send $3 and a long, self-addressed, stamped (65 cents) envelope to: Heloise/Main Dish, P.O. Box 795001, San Antonio, TX 78279-5001. This pamphlet also has Heloise’s Southwestern Veggie Rice and Mother’s Chinese Beets. Did you know that many Americans consume more than 120 pounds of potatoes every year? That’s a lot of spuds! Heloise #####

Dear Heloise: Thank you for the great hint to use pill sorters for pets’ medicines! They will be great for kennel visits. M.S., via email

President Barack Obama’s speech is shown on a television monitor on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange, March 13. In 2012, stocks wavered ahead of a presidential election that at times seemed too close to call, and while Obama ultimately reclaimed the White House by a comfortable margin, the Republicans retained control of the House. NEW YORK (AP) — If you’d told investors what was going to happen in 2012 — U.S. economic growth at stall speed, an intensifying European debt

Dockworkers’ strike averted for now NEW YORK (AP) — Dockworkers along the East Coast and the Gulf of Mexico agreed Friday to extend their contract for more than a month, averting a weekend strike that could have crippled major ports from Boston to Houston and bottled up billions of dollars’ worth of cargo. Talks aimed at reaching a new contract covering the 14,500 longshoremen will continue during the extension, which runs through Feb. 6. The dockworkers’ union and an alliance of port operators and shipping lines agreed to the extension after resolving one of the stickier points in their negotiations, involving royalty payments to longshoremen for each container they unload. Details were not disclosed. Federal mediator George Cohen said the agreement on royalties

was “a major positive step forward.” The contract between the International Longshoremen’s Association and the U.S. Maritime Alliance originally expired in September. The two sides agreed to extend it once before, for 90 days, but it had been set to expire again at 12:01 a.m. Sunday. As recently as Dec. 19, the president of the longshoremen’s union, Harold Daggett, had said a strike was expected. A walkout would have crippled the loading and unloading of a vast number of products, including electronics and clothing, and made it more difficult for U.S. manufacturers to get parts and raw materials at a time when the economy is in shaky condition. The ports involved handle about 40 percent of all U.S. container cargo.

form, few would have predicted a good year. But that’s just what they got. The Dow Jones industrial average, the Standard & Poor’s 500 and the Nasdaq composite index will all end the year substantially higher, despite losing ground in the final days of the year as concerns about the looming “fiscal cliff” mounted. The Dow is on track for a 7 percent increase, its fourth yearly gain in a row, having started the year at 12,217. The S&P 500, which started the year at 1,257, is up 12 percent, beating the 7.8 percent average annual gain of the past 20 years. The Nasdaq also logged a better-thanaverage gain, 14 percent. Those retur ns were higher when dividend pay-

ments were taken into consideration. On that basis the Dow returned 10 percent, the S&P 500 index 15 percent and the Nasdaq 16 percent. Stocks started the year on a tear, with optimism about an improving job market and a broader economic recovery providing the backdrop to the S&P 500’s best first-quarter rally in 14 years. The index advanced 12 percent by the end of March, closing the quarter at 1,408, its highest in almost four years, with financial companies and technology firms leading the charge. The Dow ended the first quarter at 13,212, logging an 8 percent gain. Apple was one of the star performers of the first quarter and was probably the year’s most talked-

about company. The popularity of the iPhone and iPad led to staggering sales growth that helped push its stock up 48 percent to almost $600 at the end of March. Apple also announced a dividend and overtook Exxon Mobil as the U.S.’s most valuable company. Investors’ optimism faded, though. The intensifying European debt crisis and concer ns about the impact that it would have on global economic growth prompted a sell-off. Within two months, by the start of June, U.S. stocks had given up the year’s gains. Borrowing costs for Spain surged and investors fretted over the outcome of Greek elections that had the potential to pull the euro currency bloc apart.

The outlook for growth in China, the world’s second-largest economy, also began to weigh on investors’ minds. Economic growth there slowed to 8.1 percent in the first quarter as export demand waned, and investors worried that it would keep falling. The stock market only recovered its poise after the European Union put together loans to bail out Spain’s banks on June 10 and the head of the European Central Bank, Mario Draghi, pledged to do “whatever it takes” to save the euro. Speculation that the Federal Reserve was set to provide the economy with more stimulus to prevent it from slipping back into recession also bolstered stocks.

MADRID (AP) — Spain faces another tough year as it grapples with recession, a deep financial crisis and 25 percent unemployment, its prime minister said Friday. In his end-of-year assessment, Mariano Rajoy said the country’s crisis had been worse than anticipated. While Rajoy was speaking, investor concerns over government attempts to shore up the main cause of Spain’s problems — its shaky bank system — sent shares in lender Bankia falling nearly 27 percent. Spain’s economy has been hit hard by the collapse of the country’s property market in 2008, which left ordinary Spaniards and banks struggling under the weight of toxic loans and assets. The country’s government rushed to prop up its financial system, sending its debt levels higher. To get its deficit under control, the government introduced a series of harsh austerity measures, such as spending cuts and tax rises. This has had a damping effect on the Spanish economy, pushing it into recession and driving up unem-

ployment. In its bid to overhaul the financial industry, Spain had to seek a $132.7 billion lifeline from the 17 European Union countries to strengthen its failing banks. Some analysts said Rajoy acted too slowly to shore up failing banks. “Some measures, like bank restructuring, were taken too late,” said Guillermo Aranda, CEO at ATL Capital investment company. The prime minister said Friday that structural reforms and “the restructuring of the financial sector” were key elements in Spain’s road to recovery. However, the stock market showed it was not convinced by the progress made, as shares in Bankia SA fell for a second day, dropping 27 percent to €0.40 as investors rushed to offload their holdings in the bank.

shares, a large number of which were sold to individual savers and pensioners, have fallen nearly 80 percent in value since the floatation. Officials with the country's bank bailout fund — the Fund for Orderly Bank Restructuring — revealed late Wednesday that Bankia

was worth minus €4.2 billion. The bank's negative value — a result of combining the bank's current balance sheet with the level of business it is expected to generate in the future — was due to worse-thanexpected losses of €3.2 billion on toxic property investments.

P.M. Rajoy says Spain faces tough year ahead

B8 Saturday, December 29, 2012 OBITUARIES

Grace Lara Romero

A rosary will be offered at Catholic Assumption Church at 11:30 a.m., Monday, Dec. 31, 2012, for Grace Lara Romero, who passed away Thursday, Dec. 27, 2012. Mass of the Resurrection will follow at 12:10 p.m., officiated by the Rev. Joseph Pacquing. Grace was born in Lincoln, Nov. 8, 1932, to Tircio Mercedes Lara and Romero, who preceded her in death. She was also preceded in death by her brother Albert Romero. She is survived by the loves of her life, her son Kevin and his five children, Anthony, Christian, Camryn, Corie and Cailyn Grace. Others left to cherish her memory include her brothers, Tircio Romero Jr., John Romero and Ferman Romero; her sisters, Isabel Flores and Maria Romero; many nieces and nephews; and her two best friends, Marianne Pollack and Evelyn Kresyman. Grace’s entire career was spent in the education of children and adults. She was a primary grade teacher in the Chicago-area and New Mexico Catholic schools for almost 20 years. After ear ning her master’s degree in bilingual

NATION/OBITUARIES education at UNM, she came to Roswell, where she was a bilingual teacher trainer and coordinator of bilingual education for 15 years, and principal of Chisum Elementary School for four years. Later, Grace taught Spanish at Eastern New Mexico UniversityRoswell. Her final role as an educator was the one she seemed to cherish most — teaching third grade at All Saints Catholic School. Grace was an extraordinarily loving and talented woman. As a member of Assumption Catholic Church for 41 years, she taught religious education and gave her time and ef forts in the project to secure pledges to build the new church and purchase the magnificent organ. Above all, her work in music ministry at the parish touched hearts and souls at Mass week after week. Grace’s lovely voice turned hymns into prayers, comforting the grieving at funerals, rejoicing with families at weddings, and singing with all her heart at every Saturday 5:30 Mass. The hole her passing has left will never be filled. Grace’s hands and heart went out to anyone who needed her. She was the very essence of kindness, concern, and loving affection to all who passed through her life. Grace, we love you with all our hearts and know that the Blessed Mother, whom you cherished so dearly, came to take you to Her Son. We give Grace back to you, O Lord, who first gave her to us; yet as you did not lose her in giving, so we do not lose her by her

return. For what is yours is ours also if we belong to You. Love is undying, and life is unending, and the boundary of this mortal life is but a horizon, and a horizon is nothing by the limit of our sight. Lift us up, loving Lord Jesus, that we may see further. Cleanse our eyes that we may see clearly. And while you prepare a place for us, prepare us also for that happy place, that we may be with You and with those we love forevermore. Amen. Honorary pallbearers will be the children of All Saints Catholic School. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to All Saints Catholic School, 2700 N. Kentucky, Roswell, NM 88201. Arrangements have been entrusted to Ballard Funeral Home and Crematory. An online registry can be accessed at

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Senate gave final congressional approval Friday to a bill renewing the gover nment’s authority to monitor overseas phone calls and emails of suspected foreign spies and terrorists — but not Americans —without obtaining a court order for each intercept. The classified Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act program was on the brink of expiring by year’s end. The 73-23 vote sent the bill to a supportive President Barack Obama, whose signature would keep the warrantless intercept program in operation for another five years. The Senate majority rejected arguments from an unusual combination of Democratic liberals and ideological Republican conservatives, who sought to amend the bill to require the government to reveal statistics showing whether any Americans were swept up in the foreign intercepts. The attempt lost, with 52 votes against and 43 in favor. The Obama administration’s intelligence community and leaders of the Senate’s intelligence committee said the information should be classified and opposed the disclosure, repeating that it is illegal to target Americans without an order from a special U.S. surveillance court.

The group seeking more disclosures also sought — unsuccessfully — a determination by the gover nment of whether any intelligence agency attempted to use infor mation gained from foreigners to search for information on Americans without a warrant, referred to as “back-door” searches. The prohibition against targeting Americans without a warrant protects Americans wherever they are, in the United States or somewhere else. Dean Boyd, a Justice Department spokesman, said after the bill was approved that communications collected under the program “have provided the intelligence community insight into terrorist networks and plans” and have “directly and significantly contributed to successful operations to impede the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction and related technologies.” Boyd said intercepted communications also revealed potential cyber threats against the United States, including specific potential computer network attacks.

Senators propose curbing filibusters Congress extends foreign surveillance law WASHINGTON (AP) — A bipartisan group of senators proposed Friday to clamp modest limits on filibusters, hoping to head off a bitter partisan fight over the issue when the new Congress convenes next week and approves its rules. Led by Sens. Carl Levin, D-Mich., and John McCain, R-Ariz., the group proposed limiting the use of filibusters, the procedural delays minority parties often use to grind the Senate’s work to a halt. The proposal would also thwart majority parties from using a counter-tactic — blocking the minority from offering amendments. Senate Democrats and Republicans, meeting separately Friday, were each given details of the proposal. Senators and aides said no final decisions were made about what rules the Senate would consider next week, a choice that largely rests in the hands of Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev. Complaining that Republicans filibuster too frequently, Reid has threatened to impose

even stricter filibuster limits with a simple majority vote — in effect ramming them through over GOP objections. That could well precipitate retaliatory procedural delays and other steps from Republicans, and poison already frayed partisan relations, even as the two parties face months of complex disputes over taxes, spending, the economy and other issues. Republicans say they filibuster because Reid often blocks them from offering amendments. Filibusters require the votes of 60 of the 100 senators to halt. Democrats will have a 55-45 majority in the Senate next year. The proposal by Levin and McCain would let the majority leader prevent filibusters when the Senate starts debating legislation. It would also reduce the number of filibusters when the Senate is ready to start trying to write compromise legislation with the House. The group’s proposal would also ensure that each party is allowed two amendments to each bill.

And it would reduce the number of federal judgeships subject to filibusters, although not for top judges. “All of us are totally frustrated with this gridlock,” McCain told reporters. Another group of mostly newer Democratic senators, led by Sens. Jeff Merkley of Oregon and Tom Udall of New Mexico, said the proposal by Levin and McCain is too weak. Besides limiting the number of filibusters, they want to require that senators who filibuster a bill actually do so by debating on the Senate floor, in hopes of making such delays less frequent and more difficult. That type of filibuster — displayed in the 1939 film “Mr. Smith Goes to Washington” — seldom happens. Instead, senators opposing a bill merely inform Senate leaders that they will force the measure to win 60 votes to prevail. “The heart of the paralysis in the United States Senate is the silent, secret filibuster,” Merkley told reporters.

al security with civil liberties. Sens. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., and Saxby Chambliss, R-Ga., the chairwoman and top Republican on the Senate Intelligence Committee, warned that the classified intercept program would be jeopardized if even statistical information was disclosed. They sparred repeatedly with Sen. Ron Wyden, D-Ore., who held the bill up for months until he was allowed to argue on the Senate floor that Americans’ civil liberties were in danger under the law.

When Americans are targeted for surveillance, the gover nment must get a warrant from a special 11judge court of U.S. district judges appointed by the Supreme Court. In contrast, when foreigners abroad are targeted, the surveillance court approves annual certifications submitted by the attorney general and the director of national Intelligence that identify certain categories of foreign intelligence targets. The House in September approved the same fiveyear extension of the law by a vote of 301-118.
