Foreign monitors energize Syrian protests

HOMS, Syria (AP) — The presence of Arab League monitors in Syria has reenergized the anti-government protest movement, with tens of thousands turning out over the past three days in cities and neighborhoods where the observers are expected to visit. The huge rallies have been met by lethal gunfire from security forces apparently worried about multiple mass sit-ins modeled after Cairo’s Tahrir Square. On Thursday, security forces opened fire on tens of thousands protesting outside a mosque in a Damascus suburb and killed at least four. The crowd had gathered at the mosque near to a municipal building where cars of the monitors had been spotted outside. Troops fired live ammunition and tear gas to disperse large protests in several areas of the country, including central Damas-

cus, killing at least 26 people nationwide, activists said. A key activist network, the Local Coordination Committees, said it has documented the names of 130 people, including six

children, who died since the Arab League monitors arrived in Syria Monday night. The ongoing violence, and new questions about the human rights record of

the head of the Arab League monitors, are reinforcing the opposition’s view that Syria’s limited cooperation with the observers is nothing more than a farce for President Bashar Assad’s regime to buy time and forestall more international condemnation and sanctions. Still, the presence of outside monitors has invigorated frustrated protesters and motivated them to take to the streets again in large numbers after months of demonstrations met by bullets had dashed their hopes of peaceful change. “We know the observers won’t do anything to help us,” said Yahya Abdel-Bari, an activist in the Damascus suburb of Douma. “But still, we want to show them our numbers, to let them know what is really happening here,” he said. The 60 Arab League monitors, who began work Tuesday, are the first Syria

CAIRO (AP) — With missile batteries, fleets of attack boats and stocks of naval mines, Iran can disrupt traffic through the Strait of Hormuz but probably cannot completely shut down the world’s most important oil route, military analysts say. The question for Iran’s leadership is whether it is worth the heavy price. Trying to close the strait would bring down a powerful military response on Iran’s head from U.S. forces in the Gulf and turn Tehran’s few remaining international allies against it. That Iran is making such dire threats at all illustrates its alarm over new

sanctions planned by the U.S. that will target oil exports — the most vital source of revenue for its economy. Iran’s leaders shrugged off years of past sanctions by the U.S. and United Nations, mocking them as ineffective. But if it cannot sell its oil, its already-suffering economy will be sent into a tailspin. “It would be very, very difficult for Iran even to impede traffic for a significant period of time,” said Jonathan Rue, a senior research analyst at the Washington-based Institute for the Study of War. “They don’t have the ability to effectively block the strait.” What the Iranians can do, Rue and other analysts

say, is harass traf fic through the Gulf — anything from stopping tankers to outright attacks. The goal would be to panic markets, drive up shipping insurance rates and spark a rise in world oil prices enough to pressure the United States to back down on sanctions. The strait would seem to be an easy target, a bottleneck only about 30 miles (50 kilometers) across at its narrowest point between Iran and Oman. Tankers carrying onesixth of the world’s oil supply pass through it, from the fields of petrogiants Iran and its Gulf Arab neighbors, exiting the Persian Gulf into the Arabian

Force Base personnel, and in turn a small group of actors grew with it. In 1962 the RCLT group formally organized, and the city provided the building located at 1101 N. Virginia Ave. for its productions. Patti Stacy, president of the RCL T, said she’s been told the property was once the locale of the old state fairgrounds. RCLT’s building supposedly housed the pig barn. In 2001, the city officially sold the property to the RCLT, which it had been leasing up until that year. On Dec. 18, RCLT held its final performance, a matinee showing of the production “Christmas Trek” in the building. The property is currently up for sale. Stacy said RCL T has wanted to move to a new location with a bigger space for more than ten years. The building’s aged status also contributed to the desire. “Boy, we couldn’t have finished over there at a

better time. The back ceiling was caving in on us that Sunday after noon when we got there,” Stacy said. In 2007, the RCLT purchased the old Park Twin movie theater, previously owned by Allen Theatres. The RCLT fully paid off the building last year. The building stood vacant until July 2011, when enough money was raised to begin the remodeling process. Current renovations have been funded entirely through donations, according to Stacy, who said thus far the remodeling has cost $120,000. The RCLT also held a seat sponsorship campaign. Currently, only 20 of the 177 seats in the new theater are unsponsored. The theater also features handicapped seating. Future Design Builders LLC, headed by Mike Bozeman, who is also a member of RCLT, is the contractor for the project. “He used to be our building supervisor, so he

Roswell Community Little Theatre to debut a new building JULIA BERGMAN RECORD STAFF WRITER

With remodeling nearly complete, the Roswell Community Little Theatre plans to inaugurate its new building with the musical comedy ‘Small Talk’ in January. On Jan. 20, RCLT will hold its grand opening, including a ribbon cutting ceremony, tours of the building and the production, at its new location, 1717 S. Union Ave. Theatrical productions in Roswell began in 1939 with the formation of the touring company, The Roswell Players, by Zelma and Paul McEvoy. World War II closed down the group, but in 1947, several company members retur ned to Roswell to produce “You Can’t Take it With You.” While the play was a success, little theatrical activity occurred in the decade that followed. Interest in theater accrued again with the increase of Walker Air

It consists of the building and remodeling of the auditorium, stage, lobby, restrooms, and all electrical and plumbing work required to get the building up to code, and acquire a certificate of occupancy to start performing. This phase will be the sole portion of the remodeling that will be completed by Jan. 20. Phase II, which RCLT hopes to start in early 2012, will consist of all backstage work, including dressing rooms, makeup rooms and rehearsal rooms. Phase III will consist of creating a storage building, that will be added to the back of the building. “We’re hoping that if we sell this property [on Virginia], it will give us enough money to get both of those phases done pretty quickly,” Stacy said.

Any volunteers wishing to help out and serve food are encouraged to come to the church on Saturday morning. Vargas will be at the church starting at 10:30 a.m. on Saturday to accept any donations. Additionally, she is willing to pick up donations, and can be reached at 317-1336. “We want to thank everybody. Roswell has always turned out very nice receptions for the families. We don’t want (the family) to worry about anything other than what’s already on their plate. We hope that we’ll have a successful reception for him,” Vargas said.

Gov. pushes for tougher DWI laws

ALBUQUERQUE (AP) — With New Year’s Eve fast approaching, Gov. Susana Martinez has a simple message: Don’t get behind the wheel if you’ve been drinking. It’s a matter of life and death. The message has been repeated year after year by New Mexico’s elected leaders, police officers, advocacy groups and families that have been ripped apart by the consequences of drunk driving. Some people have listened, resulting in a decline in the number of drunken driving fatalities. New Mexico is on track again this year to see fewer deaths than the year before. Still, Martinez said this is no time to be complacent. “There’s more work that needs to be done,” she told See DWI, Page A3

GENERAL / RECORDS

Weather extremes dominated NM headlines in 2011

ALBUQUERQUE (AP) — It was a year of extremes for New Mexico, with dramatic weather dominating the headlines from start to finish in 2011. The year began with a deep freeze that plunged the state into a subzero tundra for several days, leaving an estimated 32,000 homes and businesses without natural gas. The double whammy of record cold temperatures and the natural gas shortage cost insurance companies more than $55 million in claims. Then came the drought, which turned New Mexico into a tinderbox, forcing the closure of much of the state’s outdoor recreation centers as wildfires raged. The biggest story of the year was no doubt the massive Las Conchas fire, which burned more than 244 square miles to become the largest in New Mexico history. For nearly a week, the fire raged on the outskirts of Los Alamos, forcing the

evacuation of the town as well as one of the nation’s premier nuclear facilities, Los Alamos National Laboratory. At one point, the flames lapped at lab property, raising safety concerns about the thousands of barrels of radioactive waste stored there temporarily. It took almost six weeks for hundreds of firefighters to contain the blaze. More than five dozen homes were destroyed, and a significant portion of Bandelier National Monument was forever changed, along with lands held sacred by nearby Santa Clara Pueblo. But even as the fire died out, the rest of the state still had to deal with one of the worst droughts to hit in decades. Farmers along the lower Pecos and Rio Grande had to pump groundwater to irrigate their crops, and ranchers had to sell off cattle because their pastures never greened up. Municipal utilities around the state began implementing

Possible fraud at Tobosa

Possible Fraud Police made contact with a worker at Tobosa Developmental Services in reference to a possible fraud. The worker informed police that an ex-employee has had about $666 in unearned wages deposited into his bank account. The worker advised that between Nov. 11 and Dec. 13 either the ex-employee or someone else has clocked him in and out of work via telephone on several occasions. The worker stated that on Dec. 11 the ex-employee did work and she was able to confir m that he worked. She stated that she also confir med that the ex-employee was clocked in for a shift on Dec. 13, but he was not at work. The worker stated she has sent two certified letters to the male subject in an attempt to get him to contact her in reference to the matter. The ex-employee signed for both letters but didn’t contact the worker. The worker advised she would make further attempts to verify whether the ex-employee worked during the time period. Larceny Police were dispatched to Stripes, 611 S. Main St., in reference to a larceny. A worker stated that a female subject asked to have a phone activation card worth $60 and other assorted items. As the worker was gathering the items, the female activated her phone with the card. She then tried using an expired credit card to pay for the items. The worker stated that the female was a frequent customer. He said she left the items on the counter and went to her car to to get another

LOTTERY

form of payment. The worker further stated that the female then left in the vehicle. He attempted to cancel the phone card but the card had already been used. Police plan to contact the District Attor ney’s office to request a warrant for the female subject, after performing a photo lineup to confirm the female subject’s identity. Burglary Police responded to the 1700 block of West Summit Street in reference to a burglary. A male subject advised that sometime between Dec. 17 and Dec. 19 an unknown subject pried open his living room window to gain entry into his apartment. He reported that he learned from his female neighbor that a guy, who sometimes comes to her apartment, is probably the person responsible for breaking in because he has stolen from her in the past. He reported that his neighbor could not provide him with the male subject’s name. He advised that he noticed the female’s kids playing with some of the toys taken from his apartment. Items taken include a large purple bin full of toys, valued at $600, and a portable air conditioner, valued at $600.

watering restrictions early and, in Albuquerque, officials extended their drought advisory through March 2012. The sting of the drought began to ease in late November with the first of a series of stor ms that brought snow and rain. Northeastern New Mexico was hit hardest with a blizzard that left dozens of travelers stranded, including a Texas family that had to be rescued after their vehicle was buried under 4 feet of snow and ice. Besides setting records with the weather, New Mexico made political history when it inaugurated its first female Hispanic governor. Republican Gov. Susana Martinez won over voters with campaign promises such as the repeal of a law allowing illegal immigrants to get driver’s licenses, but the Democrat-controlled Legislature killed those key measures. She managed to hold her own on what she considered important

issues: curbing government waste and excess spending. Martinez’s push to pass the driver’s license bill during regular and special legislative sessions made her a target of immigrant rights groups, which questioned the immigration status of her paternal grandfather, who came from Mexico. She made national headlines after telling Univision her grandfather was an illegal immigrant. But research revealed the grandfather, who she said she never knew, came to the country legally. And things wouldn’t be right in New Mexico without a political scandal. Richardson remained in the headlines, first with allegations that state District Judge Michael Murphy told a judicial candidate she had to make contributions to a Democratic activist close to Richardson if she wanted to be considered for a judgeship. A report accompanying Murphy’s indictment on bribery charges in May

claimed those contributions were funneled to Richardson, who as governor had the final say on all judicial appointments. Richardson has called the accusations “outrageous and defamatory.” Murphy is set to go to trial next year. In December, the Albuquerque Journal broke the news that a grand jury was investigating whether money from campaign supporters was used to settle a threatened lawsuit against Richardson in 2007 by a woman who for merly worked in state gover nment. Richardson and federal prosecutors have declined to comment about the probe. In another judicial scandal, Albuquerque’s chief criminal judge, Pat Murdoch, resigned in disgrace after he was accused of raping a prostitute. And one of the state’s most respected political professors and a former president of the University of New Mexico, F. Chris Garcia, was suspended after he

Death row appeal reinstated

SANTA FE (AP) — The state Supreme Court has revived a legal challenge by a death row inmate. The court reinstated a habeas corpus petition by Timothy Allen of Bloomfield, who was convicted of murder, kidnapping and attempted rape of a 17-year-old girl. The killing occurred near Flora Vista in 1994. In a ruling earlier this month, the justices said a district court wrongly dismissed Allen’s legal challenge as a sanction for refusing to answer deposition questions. Allen seeks to overturn his convictions and death sentence. He says his lawyers failed to do an adequate pretrial investigation of his mental health background. He contends he was abused as a child and suffers from psychiatric disorders. The Supreme Court upheld Allen’s convictions and sentence in 1999. Robert Fry of Farmington also is on death row.

US job market ends year in better shape GENERAL

Roswell Daily Record

WASHINGTON (AP) — The long-suffering job market is ending the year better off than it began. The number of people applying for unemployment benefits each week has dropped by 10 percent since January. The unemployment rate, 8.6 percent in November, is at its lowest level in nearly three years. Factory output is rising, business owners say they’re more optimistic about hiring and consumer confidence has jumped to its highest level since April. Even the beleaguered housing market is looking slightly better. “We are ending the year on an up note,” says Joel Naroff, president of Naroff Economic Advisors. Still, 25 million Americans remain out of work or unable to find full-time jobs. Most analysts forecast a stronger economy and job growth in 2012 — and rule out a second recession — but they caution that could change if Europe’s debt crisis worsens or consumers pull back on spending. On Thursday, the Labor Department said the number of people applying for unemployment benefits last

The Associated Press in an interview. “DWI without a fatality is just as dangerous and it’s still putting many people’s lives at risk.” Martinez, along with lawmakers and anti-DWI advocates, planned to visit a checkpoint in Albuquerque late Thursday to issue their plea to the public about not drinking and driving this New Year’s Eve. But the push for awareness and tougher laws stretches back to a preholiday spike in fatal drunken driving accidents. More than a half-dozen people were killed in early November as a result of drunk driving. The list included two young children and their mother. The mother and her boyfriend, who had just gotten out of jail, had been drinking when they decided to load their children into their vehicle and head home. They never made it. There have also been plenty of cases this year that involved repeat offenders. One man marked his 11th DWI arrest. For another, it was his eighth.

began gathering outside the Grand Mosque, calling for Assad’s downfall and for international protection for civilians. Amateur videos posted on the Internet showed protesters in Douma facing off with Syrian soldiers, shouting “Freedom, Freedom!” Troops then opened fire to disperse the protesters, whose numbers had swelled to around 20,000. “It came like rain, they used heavy machine guns, Kalashnikovs, everything,” said Abdel-Bari. Four people were killed and scores others wounded, said Abdel-Bari and various activist groups. Rami Abdul-Rahman, head of the British-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, said cars belonging to the Arab League monitors were seen in front of a municipal building close to the mosque around the same time. But after the killings, Abdul-Rahman and Abdel-Bari said the monitors were barred by security officials from entering Douma and the situation quickly deteriorated. A witness said angry citizens closed off streets with rocks and garbage containers and thousands of people returned to the area around the Grand Mosque to stage a sit-in. Troops also surrounded a mosque in Damascus’ central neighborhood of Midan and tossed tear gas canisters at hundreds of people calling for the downfall of the regime. In the northern Idlib province, some 150,000 protesters took to the streets — more than on any other day recently, the Observatory said. “The presence of monitors is a source of comfort to the Syrian street and breaks the barrier of fear for those who were hesitant about protesting,” said Abdul-Rahman. Although the violence against protesters has not stopped, he said the death toll would have probably been double what it is, had there been no monitors on

weeks, the longest stretch since April. A mildly positive report on housing also came out on Thursday. The National Association of Realtors said the number of people who signed contracts to buy homes rose in November to its highest level in a year and a half. The association sought to temper enthusiasm by noting that the number of canceled contracts is also on the rise. But financial markets seized on the good news in both reports. The Dow Jones industrial average rose more than 113 points in afternoon trading. “The recovery in the labor market is maintaining its momentum,” says Michael Gapen, an economist at Barclays Capital. That’s noteworthy for an economy faced with a debt crisis in Europe and, as recently as last summer, scattered predictions of a second recession at home. There was plenty of reason for gloom. A political standoff over the federal borrowing limit brought the United States to the brink of default and cost the nation its top-drawer credit rating. Most analysts now say

And the stories about drivers seeing a car weaving on the interstate or running a red light in town are not uncommon. Even the governor has been hit by a drunk driver. It happened some time ago in Las Cruces when she and her husband were stopped at a red light. After crashing into their vehicle, Martinez said the driver got out and then passed out on the hood of his car. The governor and anti-DWI advocates are planning to push a series of legislative measures next year that include a statewide vehicle seizure program and increased penalties for repeat offenders. “I think New Mexicans every time they watch the news they see a drunk driver with No. 5, 6, 7 and say ‘What in the world? Why is he still around and driving?’ Maybe if we increase the penalties, they’ll think twice before they get behind the wheel,” she said. Martinez said public safety remains one of her top priorities and she believes the measures have a good chance of being passed during the next legislative session. “This is about keeping people in their communities and on the roadways safe,” she said. the ground. Much of the bloodshed of the past few days appeared to be a desperate attempt by authorities to keep protesters from gaining ground for multiple mass sit-ins where they can recreate the model of Cairo’s Tahrir Square. The two-week sit-in at Tahrir brought down longtime authoritarian ruler Hosni Mubarak in February and inspired other uprisings across the Arab world. On Tuesday, as monitors visited the flashpoint city of Homs in central Syria, troops shot at thousands of protesters trying to reach the city’s central Clock Square. On Wednesday, the scene was repeated in nearby Hama, where protesters were shot trying to reach Assi Square and activists said at least six people were killed. “This is the regime’s biggest fear, to have hundreds of thousands of people gathered in one place,” said one Homs resident. Syria has allowed the monitors in, released about 800 prisoners and pulled some of its tanks from the city of Homs. But it has continued to shoot and kill unarmed protesters and has not lived up to any other terms of the agreement. Syria’s top opposition leader, Burhan Ghalioun, told reporters in Cairo after meeting Arab League Chief Nabil Elaraby that the aim of the mission is not only to observe, but to make sure that the Syrian government is “stopping the killing and shooting.” He added that the Syrian government is holding more than 100,000 detainees, “some of them held in military barracks and aboard ships off the Syrian coast.” He added: “There is real danger that the regime might kill them to say there are no prisoners.” At the military hospital, one of the largest in the city, a large number of civilians and members of the military were receiving treatment. One of them was a soldier who was shot in the stomach while in a Homs street Thursday morning. He was undergoing an operation, his mother said. “My son did not harm anyone. He is a soldier to protect the country,” said his mother, Zeinab Jaroud, as she stood holding back her tears outside the operating room.

another recession is unlikely. The economy likely grew at an annual rate of 3 percent or more in the final three months of this year, analysts say. That would top the 1.8 percent growth rate in the July-September quarter, and the 0.9 percent growth rate in the first half of the year. Employers have added an average of 143,000 net jobs a month from September through November. That’s almost double the pace for the previous three months. Although it’s below the pace from the first quarter of 2011, Next year should be even better for hiring. The Associated Press surveyed 36 economists this month who said they expect the economy to generate an average of about 175,000 jobs per month in 2012. That’s almost double the pace for the previous three months, but not as high as job growth in the first quarter of the year.

machine guns, according to a recent report by Anthony Cordesman at the Center for Strategic and International Studies. The navy has three submarines and an unknown number of midget subs, capable of firing “smart” torpedoes or laying mines. It also has a large scale capability for laying mines using both small craft and commercial boats, according to the report. The Revolutionary Guard has also deployed a heavy array of antiship Seersucker missiles with a range of up to 60 miles (100 kilometers) along its coast overlooking the strait, on mobile platfor ms that make them harder to hit. The Guard’s naval forces and the regular navy “have been the most favored service. The Iranian air force and ground forces have not seen the same level of attention in domestic procurement and weapons systems,” Rue said. “They realize their navies are the best options for inflicting casualties” on the U.S. or Arab Gulf nations. Still, those forces would not likely be enough to outright seal the strait, given the presence of the U.S. 5th Fleet based in the Gulf nation

companies spend more on recruiting. CEO Paul Forster says the healthcare, energy and information-technology sectors have the greatest increase in job openings. More small businesses plan to hire than at any time in three years, a trade group said earlier this month. And a separate private-sector survey found more companies are planning to add workers in the first quarter of next year than at any time since 2008. Consumers are also growing more confident. The Conference Board said Tuesday that its consumer confidence index rose to 64.5 in December, the highest reading since April. Still, the economy and job market remain vulnerable to setbacks. Economists view Europe as the biggest threat to the global economy in 2012. Europe is expected to fall into recession as banks reduce lending and countries cut spending and raise taxes in response to a simmering gover nmentdebt crisis.

of Bahrain. On Wednesday, Pentagon spokesman George Little warned that any “Interference with the transit or passage of vessels through the Strait of Hormuz will not be tolerated.” Laying minefields in the Hor muz waters would in theory be the most ef fective action, forcing time-consuming clearing by U.S. forces and their allies before tankers could move through. But particularly strong currents in the strait make such mining difficult. Moreover, the U.S. and its Gulf allies have extensive surveillance in the area, meaning the Iranians would have little time to set an effective minefield, Rue said. The United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia have both extensively increased their anti-mining capabilities. Iran’s anti-ship missile batteries on the coast are another major threat. But while the missile platforms are mobile, the radar facilities that enable them to target shipping largely are not, making them vulnerable to U.S. strikes. “It wouldn’t be a cakewalk” for U.S. and other forces to push back an Iranian attempt to close the strait, Rue said. But in the end, “their capabilities are not great and ours overwhelmingly outmatch theirs.”

How clear was my crystal ball about 2011? A4 Friday, December 30, 2011

SANTA FE — So how good were my predictions for the year? In keeping with long tradition, this column made predictions at the beginning of the year about New Mexico politics. Let’s see how I did. The first year of a new administration always is difficult to foresee. Would new governor, Susana Martinez, be able to carry out her campaign promises? This column will deal with those gubernatorial predictions. Actually she has done a decent job of accomplishing her purposes. She’s just doing it more subtly than expected. Her two predecessors, Gary Johnson and Bill Richardson, tended to do things with a flourish. Gov. Martinez promised bold action. We wondered why she copied Gov. Richardson’s slogan from eight years earlier until it was discovered that the words are out of the GOP’s national playbook. Many new Republican governors around the country are using the

same phrase. Martinez announced that her top priority would be to cut $500 million out of the state budget but only proposed about a $150 million cut but, quietly, she has slashed much more by reducing staff and lowering salaries. We predicted she would be different. And that, she is. We predicted she would listen carefully to her party advisers. She has done that more than any other governor. Since government corruption was a major part of Martinez’s campaign, we predicted an emphasis on ethics legislation during the regular legislative session. But, as

Roswell Daily Record

usual, little happened. We knew Gov. Martinez’s concern about illegal aliens but we didn’t mention the drivers’ license issue. That became the cause she bled the most for during both the regular and special sessions. The issue of voter fraud, a Republican staple everywhere, was left to new Republican secretary of state Dianna Duran. Since nothing has come of that, so far, Gov. Martinez has managed to avoid any fallout from the issue. Reorganization was expected to be a major topic of the Legislature this year. The governor’s office introduced legislation to merge departments but interest waned, just as we had predicted, when the projected savings didn’t turn out to be as big as expected. But Martinez has proceeded on her own, to quietly merge various functions of several departments. Surprisingly, she has retained some of the public information officers that former Gov. Richardson

had hired out of the media ranks. But they have assumed double duties with other departments and at a lower salary. Other duties have been combined between departments and many more are expected. All Cabinet secretaries were hired with the understanding that their departments might be combined with others and that their salaries could well be lowered. It appears that Martinez will try to accomplish as much reorganizing as she can without legislative action. She may get away with quite a bit of reorganizing since many lawmakers also see a need for streamlining government. At some point, a line will be drawn and the governor will find herself in court again for exceeding her powers. Some of that already has happened and Martinez has not fared well. Quietly, she likely is very irritated but she hasn’t taken the approach of former Gov. Johnson,

who used to describe our Supreme Court as a bunch of guys who sit around and arrange chicken bones in order to reach decisions. This seems to be Martinez’s style. She hasn’t directly confronted her opponents as some other new Republican governors have taken on unions in battles that end up in court or recall elections. Her style is working, for now at least. Most polls show her popularity increasing since being elected. She is said to be one of only 11 governors in the nation with an approval rating of 50 percent or better. And she is the most popular of the new Republican governors. Gov. Martinez has fared better than I expected for a district attorney who never had been to Santa Fe. Will next year be as tranquil or will behind-the-scenes tensions erupt? (Write to Jay Miller at 3 La Tusa, Santa Fe, NM 87505; by fax at 9840982; or by e-mail at insidethecapitol@hotmail.com)

National Opinion Secrecy and the Supreme Court

For three days beginning March 26, the U.S. Supreme Court will set aside an extraordinary 5 1/2 hours for arguments on the constitutionality of President Barack Obama’s health care law. Court watchers point out that this is the most time devoted to a single case since the 1960s, and a signal of the importance the court assigns to the case. And yet Americans will not be able to watch the give and take of history in the making. They will be barred from witnessing hearings that could influence how justices define the very scope of federal power. Justice Stephen Breyer once worried, for example, that “public trust” in the court could be undermined, while Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg claimed that gavel-to-gavel coverage “cannot be successfully edited by someone outside the judicial house.” Chief Justice John Roberts has said he fears potential “grandstanding,” and Justice Anthony Kennedy once suggested cameras “would change our collegial dynamic.” It’s approaching unanimity — or would be, if we only had a few more takers among the all-important nine on the court itself. Guest Editorial The Denver Post

Yemen

The Obama administration is reportedly preparing to admit President Ali Abdullah Saleh of Yemen into the United States for medical treatment. It is not an easy call. But admitting Saleh, under strict conditions, offers the best hope for speeding his exit from power and ending the repression that has cost hundreds of Yemeni lives. We understand why the administration has moved cautiously. It does not want to be seen as giving sanctuary to a bloody dictator — one who previously curried Washington’s favor by cooperating in the fight against Al Qaeda — or to give Saleh an overseas platform from which he can stir up more trouble for Yemen. And it does not want a replay of 1979, when Iran’s ayatollahs used the excuse of Washington’s admission of the deposed shah for medical treatment to orchestrate the seizure of the American Embassy and capture of American diplomats. The arguments for admitting Saleh are still persuasive. Most important of all, with Saleh out of the country, Yemen will have a better chance to hold credible presidential elections, now scheduled for February. While Saleh’s departure to the United States does not guarantee a fair vote or a peaceful outcome, his continued presence in Yemen makes one almost impossible. As news circulated this week of his possible departure, Yemeni views were divided. Some wanted him gone as soon as possible. Others bridled that he might escape justice. Many Yemenis would like to see Saleh eventually stand trial for his many bloody crimes. Getting him out of Yemen right now increases the chances that his country will finally be able to move beyond his repressive rule.

It is a risk factor for developing dementia and may be a stage on the road to dementia. Fortunately, many people who get to that stage don’t keep heading down the road to full dementia. People with mild cognitive impairment are able to handle the tasks of day-to-day living. They may be less efficient than they used to be, but they can live independently. It surely does not sound like you have dementia. If you are not having trouble managing activities like shopping, preparing meals and paying bills, dementia is unlikely.

In fact, the very thought that service members would somehow have to protect or defend their Christian faith would have seemed ludicrous.

So the question is whether your memory problems are just nor mal aging or something else. Mild cognitive impairment is one possibility, but not the only one. Memory problems can also come from something other than a brain disorder. If a patient of mine is having serious memory problems, I consider other possible causes. These include depression, side effects from medications, thyroid problems, low vitamin B12, among others. Diagnosing and treating these conditions can fix the memory problems. If you don’t have one of these conditions, the next question is whether you have mild cognitive impairment. Your doctor See DR. K, Page A5

LETTERS

Evolution not science

Dear Editor: A letter in the Nov. 24 Record called scientists who do not believe in evolution “pseudoscientific quacks.” That writer should know that two of them, whom I have quoted in previous letters, are top-rated scientists. John Baumgardner, Ph.D., and D. Russell Humphreys, Ph.D., are physicists retired from Los Alamos National Laboratories and Sandia Laboratories, respectively. They were both devoted atheists and evolutionists until they examined the facts carefully. Did that label apply to the late Werner von Braun (who directed our space program for many years) because he did not believe in evolution? Civil people will compare the relative merits of different ideas without personal attacks. What else can we call branding people who dare to question Darwinism as “psuedo-scientific quacks” but name calling? We have dealt with the question of carbon14 in coal deposits before. The whole theory of carbon dating is based on the fact that a living plant absorbs carbon dioxide from the air. Some of that carbon is carbon12 (“nor mal” carbon) and a small amount is carbon14. Animals eat plants or other animals and ingest some carbon14. When an organism dies, it no longer takes in carbon14. That substance gradually decays to carbon12. We try to estimate the years (none too accurately, it seems) since the organism died by the ratio of carbon14/carbon12. Why do we still find carbon14 in coal deposits thought to be 70 million years old? It should all be gone in about 250,000 years. If it is being replenished by new carbon14 from the air or by nuclear conversion due to galactic cosmic rays per the writer’s claim, all carbon dating is meaningless. Concerning vestigial organs, the human body was once thought to have more than 100

such organs “left over from evolution.” Among them are the tonsils and the appendix. We have since learned that these play a role in the immune system. All or nearly all other “vestigial organs” have been found to be useful. It was found that people in Hiroshima in 1945 were much more likely to survive the atomic bomb if they had an appendix. There have been times when babies would have their appendices removed at birth because they were “unnecessary.” As for the string of telomere code in the middle of human chromosome two, it indeed appears to have been a splice. When and where did this splice take place? The letter writer used the word “proving” in his previous letter (“If human life has not evolved, why does Human Chromosome Two contain a string of telomere code in the middle, proving that a splice occurred a very long time ago, much longer than the young-Earth people say we have been around?”). The word “prove” has truly limited uses, primarily in mathematics and unassailable scientific fact. When there are unknowns, and things that can never be known, the words “suggest” or “it appears” are more appropriate. For all we really know, that apparent splice has always been there. By the way, we still must hear from the writer how disorder becomes order without an ordering mechanism. We must say again that the theory of evolution cannot be called science. It cannot be verified by repeatable experiments or by observation. Its primary characteristic is that it provides an explanation of how we got here that does not involve a creator God. I believe that it is this characteristic and not whether or not it is true, that drives many scientists to insist on blindly calling evolution fact, when it does not have a real basis. Thank you, Russell A. Scott Roswell

Both clauses were intended to safeguard religious liberty, not to circumscribe the practicing of religion. The framers were seeking to guarantee a freedom of religion, not a freedom from it. I respect all religions but adhere to one. I believe what Benjamin Rush — a signer of the Declaration of Independence and a member of the presidential administrations of Adams, Jefferson and Madison — wrote: “Such is my veneration for every religion that reveals the attributes of the Deity, or a future state of rewards and punishments, that I had rather see the opinions of Confucius or Mohammed inculcated upon our youth than see them grow up wholly devoid of a system of religious principles. But the religion I mean to recommend in this place is that of the New Testament.” And in so doing, I believe in the collection of beliefs stated almost poetically in the Apostles’ Creed: “I believe in God the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth, and in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary. He suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died and was buried; he descended to the grave. The third day, he rose again from the dead; he ascended into heaven and sits on the right hand of God the Father Almighty, from where he will come to judge the quick and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit; the holy Christian church; the fellowship of saints; the forgiveness of sins; the

I predict that in the next 10 years we will develop much better tests for determining if a person has mild cognitive impairment. I think we will also develop better tests for determining the risk that a person with mild cognitive impairment will go on to develop dementia.

Friends, now is not the time in the history of our republic to be sheepish about our patriotism or religious convictions, as so many of our leaders are. Now is the time to demonstrate with boldness in what and whom we believe. That is the type of leader and president that we need in America’s future. We need more God-fearing men and women like those portrayed in “Courageous,” the inspiring film about everyday heroes that also was expanded into a best-selling novel by my friend and prolific author Randy Alcor n (http://www.epm.org). In the novel, one character speaks for many of us and challenges the rest: “But there are some men who, regardless of the mistakes we’ve made in the past, regardless of what our fathers did not do for us, will give the strength of our arms and the rest of our days to loving God with all that we are and to teaching our children to do the same. And whenever possible, to love and mentor others who have no father in their lives but who desperately need help and direction. We are inviting any man whose heart is willing and courageous to join us.” Whatever your religious persuasion, don’t be ashamed of it. And don’t hesitate to let others know where you stand, respectfully speaking. Freedom of speech and religious liberty are your First Amendment rights. This is America. And that’s one of the things that still make us a great nation. In God we trust.

Muslims upset by NYPD to boycott mayor’s breakfast

NEW YORK (AP) — The goodwill that Mayor Michael Bloomberg built among Muslims with his support of the planned mosque near ground zero was threatened this week as Islamic religious and civic leaders decried a recently disclosed police effort to gather intelligence on Muslim neighborhoods. Fifteen Muslim clerics and community figures said they will boycott the mayor’s annual interfaith breakfast Friday over the surveillance program, whose existence was revealed in a series of Associated Press articles. The breakfast, traditionally held at the historic New York Public Library building on 42nd Street, has long served as a way to showcase the city’s diversity during the overlapping winter holidays. “We felt uncomfortable going to have coffee and doughnuts with the mayor knowing that this civil liberties crisis that’s affecting all New Yorkers is not going to be addressed,” said Imam Al-Hajj Talib AbdurRashid, president of the Islamic Leadership Council of New York, a group of 35 clerics and their congregations. He and other Muslim activists and clerics sent a letter to Bloomberg this

week turning down their invitations. About three dozen other people signed the letter as supporters, including rabbis, a Roman Catholic nun, Protestant pastors and a Quaker, though it was unclear how many had been invited to the breakfast. “I couldn’t be there while knowing that the mayor supports, if not established, this warrantless spying apparatus,” said Hesham El-Meligy, founder

of the Building Bridges Coalition of Staten Island. accused Activists Bloomberg of squandering the goodwill built up last year when he fiercely defended a proposed Islamic prayer and cultural center not far from where the World Trade Center stood.

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — Texas Gov. Rick Perry has a January court date in his bid to have his name added to Virginia’s Republican presidential primary ballot. Perry, who failed last week to obtain the needed signatures to get on the March 6 ballot, is seeking a court order to have his name added to the twocandidate March 9 primary. By law, the ballots must be printed by Jan. 9. Thursday, U.S. District Judge John A. Gibney scheduled a hearing for a preliminary injunction for Jan. 13. He said that if Perry prevailed, Virginia might have to do another printing of the ballot, the

Richmond Times-Dispatch reported. Perry and Newt Gingrich failed to win a place on the Virginia ballot last week. Both fell short of gathering the required 10,000 signatures of registered voters, with 400 from each of the state’s 11 congressional districts. Perry said “overly burdensome and unconstitutional requirements” prevented him from collecting enough signatures to be certified as a candidate. He submitted 6,000 signatures on the Dec. 22 deadline. He also challenges the part of Virginia’s law that says signatures must be gathered by a state resi-

dent, claiming that the requirements “restrict the number of message carriers” and even prevents him from soliciting signatures for his own campaign.

turnout tomorrow, and it’s nice that all faiths can get together,” the mayor said Thursday. Boycott participants “are going to miss a chance to have a great breakfast.” He and Police Commissioner Ray Kelly have insisted their counterterrorism programs are legal. “Contrary to assertions, the NYPD lawfully follows leads in terrorist-related investigations and does not engage in the kind of wholesale spying on communities that was falsely alleged,” police spokesman Paul Browne said in an email Thursday. However, records examined by the AP show the police department collected information on people who were neither accused nor suspected of wrongdoing. The AP series detailed police department efforts to infiltrate Muslim neighborhoods and mosques with programs aggressive designed by a CIA officer. Documents reviewed by the AP revealed that undercover police officers known as “rakers” visited businesses such as Islamic bookstores and cafes, chatting up store owners to determine their ethnicities and gauge their views. They also played cricket and eavesdropped in ethnic clubs. The surveillance efforts

have been credited with enabling police to thwart a 2004 plot to bomb the Herald Square subway station. Critics said the efforts amount to ethnic profiling and violate court guidelines that limit how and why police can collect intelligence before there is evidence of a crime. They have asked a judge to issue a restraining order against the police. Participants in the boycott said they feel betrayed by the city. “Civic engagement is a two-way street. We’ve done our part as a community; we’re waiting for the city to do their part,” said Linda Sarsour, executive director of the Arab-American Association of New York. Other Muslim leaders said they disagreed with the boycott. “I believe that engagement is more important. I think everyone disagrees with the way the NYPD is penetrating the community, but I think generalizing everything else as bad is not appropriate,” said Imam Shamsi Ali of the Islamic Cultural Center of New York. “The mayor’s not perfect, but there are many things about him we need to appreciate. And I think working with him is a way of appreciation.”

Verizon to charge $2 for one-time payment NEW YORK (AP) — Verizon Wireless, the country’s largest cellphone company, said Thursday that it will start charging $2 for every payment subscribers make over the phone or online with their credit cards. The company said this “convenience fee” will be introduced Jan. 15. The fee won’t apply to electronic check payments or to automatic credit card payments set up through Verizon’s AutoPay system. Paying by credit card in a Verizon store will also be free, as will mailing a check. Other carriers have tried to get subscribers to move to automatic payments through other means. AT&T Inc. offers a $10 gift card for those who set up AutoPay. Sprint Nextel Corp. charges subscribers who have caps on the fees they can rack up each month. Those people

are charged $5 monthly unless they set up automatic payments.

It’s not uncommon for utilities, universities and state tax departments to charge convenience fees for online payments. Each credit card payment comes with fees that the companies can avoid by getting electronic checks instead. Automatic payments mean less trouble for companies going after late payments. Verizon Communications Inc., the landline phone company that owns most of Verizon Wireless, tried last year to introduce a $3.50 fee for people who paid their bill for FiOS TV or Internet service month-to-month by credit card. It backed off after complaints.

Verizon Wireless serves 91 million phones and other devices on accounts that pay the company directly.

the secrets of the Roswell Klan. In order to protect the privacy and identity of descendants of the Klan activists, the names of rank-and-file members will not be divulged. The Roswell Klan had a total of more than 500 members over its ten-year existence. The Roswell Klan was seen as different things by different people. The community seemed to consider

it to be a patriotic organization, but the membership thought of it as a sort of lodge similar to the Masons. Others saw it as a trouble-maker needlessly stirring up unrest. The “resident philosopher” of the Roswell Klan was Capt. Jason W. James, a very prominent man in the community who made speeches and published essays expressing his views on

Navy Petty Officer 1st Class Netzahualcoyotl Lopez, whose wife, Sheila, is the daughter of Cecelia Vasquez of Roswell, and fellow Sailors assigned to amphibious transport dock ship USS New Orleans (LPD 18) and embarked Marines of the 11th Marine Expeditionary Unit (MEU) participated in a community service project at the House of Family children’s shelter in Sihanoukville, Cambodia. The shelter is funded by the School of Public Health and Social Work of St.

Elizabeth and serves as a refuge for HIV/AIDS positive orphans or vulnerable children (OVC). Sailors and Marines helped make a stone walkway for the shelter. Afterwards they played games, danced and even provided basic medical treatment for the kids. New Orleans deployed early November in support of the nation’s Maritime Strategy and is currently conducting theater security cooperation missions in the U.S. 7th Fleet area of responsibility (AOR). Alongside LPD-18 is the

amphibious dock landing ship USS Pearl Harbor (LSD 52), the amphibious assault ship USS Makin Island (LHD 8) and embarked 11th MEU, make up the Makin Island Amphibious Ready Group (ARG). The mission of the Makin Island ARG is to help provide deterrence, promote peace and security, preserve freedom of the seas and provide humanitarian/disaster response as well as supporting the Navy’s Maritime Strategy when forward deployed.

Four types of American shoppers have altered the shopping landscape this holiday season. There’s the bargain hunter who times deals. The midnight buyer who stays up late for discounts. The returner who gets buyer’s remorse. And the “me” shopper who selfgifts. It’s the latest shift by consumers in the fourth year of a weak U.S. economy. Shoppers are expected to spend $469.1 billion during the holiday shopping season that runs from November through December. While it won’t be known just how much Americans spent until the season ends on Saturday, it’s clear they are shopping differently than in years past. The bargain timer Cost-conscious shoppers haven’t just been looking for bargains this season. They’ve also been more deliberate about when to find those deals. Many believe the biggest bargains come at the beginning and end of the season, which has created a kind of “dumbbell effect” in sales. For the week ended on Nov. 26, which included the traditional start of the holiday shopping season on the day after Thanksgiving, stores had the biggest sales surge compared with the prior week since 1993, according to the International Council of Shopping Centers-Goldman Sachs Weekly Chain Stores Sales Index. The cumulative two-week-

sales drop-off that followed marked the biggest percentage decline since 2000. Then, stores had another surge in the final days, as retailers stepped up promotions again. The midnight buyer Bargain shoppers used to wake up at the crack of dawn to take advantage of big discounts on Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving. This year, some shoppers instead stayed up late on Thanksgiving night. This shift in behavior was in large part due to retailers’ efforts to outdo each other during the traditional start to the holiday shopping season. Stores like Macy’s, Best Buy and Target for the first time opened at midnight on Thanksgiving night, offering deals that once were reserved for the next day. Twenty-four percent of Black Friday shoppers were at stores at midnight, according to a poll by the National Retail Federation, the industry’s biggest trade group. That’s up from 9.5 percent the year before when only a few stores were open during that time. The returner Shoppers who were lured into stores by bargains gleefully loaded up on everything from discounted tablet computers to clothing early in the holiday season. But soon after, many suffered a case of buyer’s remorse and rushed back to return some of the items that they bought.

For every dollar stores take in this holiday season, it’s expected they will have to give back 9.9 cents in returns, up from 9.8 last year, according to the a survey of 110 retailers the NRF. It would be the highest return rate since the recession. In better economic times, it’s about 7 cents. Stores have themselves to blame for the higher returns. They lured shoppers in with deals of up to 60 percent off as early as October. Because of the deals, shoppers spent more than they normally would — and then many felt bad about it. Retailers’ policies have been more lax since 2008, with some making it even easier to return purchases this year, so a lot of items that were purchased early in the season went back. The “me” shopper After scrimping on themselves during the recession, Americans turned more self-indulgent. It’s a trend that started last year, but became more prevalent this season. According to the NRF, spending for non-gift items will increase by 16 percent this holiday season to $130.43 per person. That’s the highest number recorded since it started tracking it in 2004. “This season, the consumer put herself ahead of the giving,” says Marshal Cohen, chief industry analyst with market research firm The NPD Group.

TV show on Muslims takes on Sept. 11 attacks NEW YORK (AP) — A television show about members of a Muslim community in Michigan is focusing what may be its second-to-last episode almost entirely on the conflicted feelings that its featured participants have about marking anniversaries of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. The episode of TLC’s “All-American Muslim” airs Sunday (10 p.m. EST). The series attracted attention earlier this month when a conservative Christian group called on advertisers to boycott the series, calling it “propaganda that riskily hides the Islamic agenda’s clear and present danger to American liberties and traditional values.” Two companies, the Lowe’s home improvement chain and travel planning website Kayak.com, announced they were pulling ads. TLC hasn’t said how many companies responded to the Florida Family Association’s call to stop sponsoring the show. The controversy prompted a backlash of people protesting against Lowe’s. Some new advertisers have signed on since then, TLC General Manager Amy Winter said Thursday. Filming for the reality TV series took place during commemorations for the 10th anniversary of the attacks. Both TLC and the show’s characters, Muslims living in and around Dearborn, a suburb of Detroit at the heart of one of the largest Arab-American populations outside the Middle East, wanted to address the topic, Winter said. “I’m very proud of it,” she said. “What you’ll see in there is a community with a range of emotions that they express over what was probably one of the most pivotal moments in our nation’s history.” Mike Jaafar, a deputy sheriff who participated in a Sept. 11 memorial service at T iger Stadium in Detroit, helped law enforcement prepare for any problems related to the anniversary. He choked up when recalling how police officers in New York City were killed as they tried to rescue people at the World Trade Center.

“You think about your guys who work for you, going into a building and not coming home,” he said. Nawal Auode was a high school sophomore on Sept. 11, 2001, when her mother called to say she was picking her up at school. Her mother found out about the attacks as she was passing out flyers to advertise a day care center and a man spit at her and ordered her off his porch. “It was the first time I realized that people looked at me as less American,” said Suehaila Amen. “As a person who was born and raised in this country, it was very difficult.” Auode said she dreads the anniversary of the attacks because of a sense that members of her community have to defend themselves for something they had nothing to do with. That’s at the root of the biggest conflict in Sunday’s episode. One woman talks about how important it was to attend a Sept. 11 commemoration, but her adult-age children didn’t want to go. One man, Bilal Amen, traveled to New York City to visit the Sept. 11 memorial because, he said, “I want to see the place that changed my life.” Another woman, Nina Bazzy, spoke angrily about the Sept. 11 terrorists and said they weren’t real Muslims because “a real Muslim would not do anything like that.” She said Osama bin Laden made life difficult for many Muslims in the United States. “He ruined it for us,” Bazzy said. “He ruined it for our kids. He made us scared in our own homes.” “All-American Muslim” ends its eightepisode first season on Jan. 8. Its ratings are considered disappointing for TLC, and the attention caused by this month’s controversy didn’t improve them. Based on ratings alone, a second season would be considered unlikely. Working in its favor is TLC’s pride in a series that spotlights communities that many viewers aren’t familiar with.

NATIONAL BRIEFS ROMO HAS MORE PROTECTION ON INJURED HAND

IRVING, Texas (AP) — With tape still wrapped around his bruised throwing hand after practice, Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo insists that he will be ready to play in what is essentially a playoff game against the New York Giants. “Everything’s coming together like we thought, just each day it’s getting a little bit better,” Romo said Thursday. “We’ll be good to go this weekend.” Romo wore the protective wrap on his swollen right hand, the one he banged on a defender’s helmet on the opening series Saturday against Philadelphia before coming out of the game. The wrap leaves his fingers and thumb free. He wasn’t wearing anything on the hand Wednesday. The Cowboys go on the road to face the Giants on Sunday night, a matchup of 8-7 teams that will decide the NFC East and fill the NFC’s last playoff spot. Romo, who played through a broken rib early this season, said he isn’t worried about whether he will feel normal Sunday. “You have to go out there and practice all week and get yourself ready to go to the game on Sunday. I’m excited that we’re in this position and we have an opportunity to go and play in a big game like this,” he said. “This is when it gets fun. No matter what, you’re not going to sit one of these out.” During the few minutes early in practice open to reporters Thursday, Romo came out of the locker room wearing the protective wrap and made a few soft tosses. He was also bantering with teammates. “Tony did a little bit more today than he did yesterday. I wouldn’t constitute a full practice, but he’s making some progress,” coach Jason Garrett said. “The swelling still is there. ... All the functional things that a quarterback has to do, he has to be able to do by game time, and he’s making progress in all those areas.” Garrett said backup quarterback Stephen McGee got some work with the first-team offense again Thursday.

Roswell boys hang on against Grants Section

It wasn’t what one might call a masterpiece, but Roswell got a win nonetheless on Thursday. The Coyotes struggled from the field, turned the ball over 25 times and gave Grants far too many open looks at the basket. They escaped, though, with a 58-57 win over the Pirates in the championship semifinals of the Poe Corn Invitational at the Coyote Den. “It was ugly, I know that,” Roswell coach Britt Cooper said. “We missed opportunities and (Grants) missed opportunities. These are two very evenly-matched teams.” They were so evenly matched that the lead changed hands 13 times and neither team ever led by more than six points. As is the case with onepoint games, it was the fourth quarter that provided the most excitement. Roswell led 44-40 as the quarter opened, but Grants got buckets from Josiah Stewart and Jacob Willcox within the first minute to tie the game. The lead flipped three times over the next two min-

utes and the Coyotes led 5049 with 5:04 left. They appeared to get a huge break when Grants’ Ryan Ramirez was whistled for a technical foul with 4:30 left. Saul Carrillo missed both free throws, though, and Roswell immediately turned the ball over on the ensuing possession. That turnover started a string of three straight turnovers by the Coyotes and fueled Grants’ run to the lead. Ramirez hit a pair at the line, Weston Zeller hit a shot underneath and Denis Moleres buried a jumper to push Grants to a 55-50 lead. Enter Anthony Olguin for the Coyotes. The junior post, who battled foul trouble the entire night, made it 55-52 with a bunny from the block 10 seconds after Moleres’ jumper. Then, 16 seconds later, he found the bottom of the net on a leaner in the paint off a pick-and-roll pass from Marquel Warner to make it 5554. Moleres missed a good look at a 3 on Grants’ next

Through its first 10 games of the season, the Goddard boys basketball team had shown flashes of greatness and conjured memories of the 2010 team that came within minutes of a state championship. Although the Rockets had won all of their games leading up to Thursday’s tilt with Farmington, Goddard hadn’t consistently shown what it’s capable of. That changed against the Scorpions. Goddard put up 49 second-half points en route to an 84-61 victory that propelled them into the championship game of the Poe Corn Invitational, where they will square off with Roswell. To spark his team from the start of the game, Rocket coach Kevin Jones started David Sweet, the team’s own personal Energizer Steve Notz Photo

Goddard scored the first seven points of the game, showing a flash of the team they can be, but by the end of the first quarter, the Scorpions had closed to within four. At halftime, the Rockets had built its customary double-digit lead, but in the second half the Rockets turned it up and showed their raucous fans the type of team they can be. After a Goddard miss to start the second half, Chase Salazar swiped a Farmington pass and on the other end hit Lane Vander Hulst for an easy bucket, giving Goddard a 37-25 lead. Two possessions later another steal, this time by Vander Hulst, led to more points for the Rockets when Sweet grabbed an offensive rebound and hit a

The Goddard girls basketball team fell to Ruidoso 57-50 in the Goddard Holiday Classic Consolation championship game on Thursday. Goddard fell behind 14-2 early, but rallied to tie the game, something that didn’t surprise coach Greg Torres. “Of the three games, this was the best of the three,” he said. “I felt like we got out to a slow start, but we were able to get back and tie it. It seems like every time we play Ruidoso, there are huge momentum swings.” The Rockets trailed in the fourth quarter, but battled back to within five. “We gave ourselves a chance at the end, but we

FSU rallies past Notre Dame in Champs Sports Bowl

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — The day before his team took the field for its Champs Sports Bowl matchup with Notre Dame, Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher acknowledged that he had higher hopes for his team than how they ended up in 2011. Loaded with talent and expectations in the preseason, the No. 25 Seminoles squandered early season opportunities against ranked foes and fizzled again late in the year to end any path back to the Bowl Championship Series. Thursday night’s 18-14 win over Notre Dame in front of a sellout crowd at Florida’s Citrus Bowl might not have been the national stage FSU expected to be on this season, but how it won the game could be proof it is finally making progress. The Seminoles rallied from a 14-point second-half deficit and used a pair of touchdown passes by E.J. Manuel and two field goals from Dustin Hopkins to earn their fourth straight bowl win and second under Fisher. “I’m proud to coach this football team,” Fisher said. “... We’ve had a lot of trials and tribulations...But that team has special character about it.” FSU receiver Rashad Greene, who caught one of Manuel’s touchdown passes, was selected the game’s MVP. “We had a very good finish,” Manuel said. “We play for each other, not individual stats and performance. We just beat Notre Dame. We’re going to feel good for months.” The Seminoles finished the game with 290 yards, including going 3 for 14 on third down, and got an efficient night from Manuel. He played behind a young offensive line, but was 20 for 31 passing for 249 yards. Injuries forced the Seminoles to start four freshman on their line and they gave up five sacks, but their defense picked off Notre Dame quarterbacks Tommy Rees and Andrew Hendrix three times and also had four sacks. Notre Dame shuffled between Rees and Hendrix throughout the game, but both struggled. They were a combined 19 for 35 and 187 yards passing. FSU scored on all four of its red zone chances. The Irish also were without their biggest offensive weapon late, with receiver Michael Floyd being forced to the sideline following a third quarter touchdown catch with what coach Brian Kelly described afterward was

never in doubt in the second half.” Marika Trujillo nailed six 3-pointers and led the Coyotes with 20 points, while Rikki Or nelas chipped in with 10 points for Roswell (6-4).

Dexter 80, Loving 50 Dexter’s Tamara Salas poured in 25 points to lead the Demons to a win over Loving in the Goddard JV Holiday Tournament championship game on Thursday. Demon coach Kim Hamill said that the win was good for her team. “We have been right there in pretty much all the games,” she said. “They needed the victory and confidence. It was nice to see them work together as a team.”

Hess threw a lead pass to the streaking Vander Hulst and as he corralled the ball with no one in front of him, nearly everyone came out of their seats as he threw the dunk down with two hands, giving Goddard a 47-28 lead. Rocket coach Kevin Jones said that the second half was fun for his team.

“It was fun. That is what I have been looking for from them,” he said. “We came out intense in the first half, but we stepped it up in the second half.” It was fun in part because of Goddard’s dominance inside. Goddard’s three post players, Sweet, Vander Hulst and Erik Johnson

an “upper body injury.” He returned to the game, but was a nonfactor. “It started in South Florida,” said Kelly of the Irish’s recurring theme of turnovers and missed opportunities. “And it continued to shoot itself throughout the entire year. We know what we need to do. We’ve already talked about it, and the players that are going to be back for the 2012 football season will be committed to getting that end done.” Junior linebacker Manti Te’o, who led Notre Dame with 13 tackles and got in on a sack Thursday, said fatigue was not a factor in the Irish not being able to maintain pressure on Manuel in the fourth quarter. “They made their corrections and we just, as a defense, we just needed to get to the quarterback and we knew what E.J. could do back there when he had time...So that is something that we have to look at. “We have a long time to prepare for next year, and when that time comes, that doesn’t happen again.” After some stagnant offense on both sides in the first half, FSU trailed 14-0 early in the third quarter before finding some momentum through the air. The Seminoles closed the gap to 14-9 with an 18-yard touchdown pass from Manuel to Bert Reed to open the fourth quarter, but failed on their 2-point conversion attempt. They took the lead just 1:32 later after Nigel Bradham intercepted a Hendrix pass inside the Notre Dame 20 to set up an 18yard touchdown catch by Greene to make it 15-14 with just over 13 minutes to play following another failed 2-point try. The Seminoles added their second field goal of the game a series later. Notre Dame punted on its next possession, but pinned FSU inside its own 5 and forced a quick three-and-out. A poor punt by the Seminoles and a facemask penalty on the return gave the Irish the ball on the FSU 28 with 3:56 to play, but Rees was picked off in the end zone with 2:48 left and FSU was able run out most of the remaining time. Notre Dame took a 14-0 lead on its opening drive of the second half by capping a nine-play, 62-yard drive with a 5-yard touchdown pass from Rees to Floyd. Floyd fought Seminoles cornerback Greg Reid for the ball on to play, juggling it multiple times before finally getting his hands around it. Reid stayed down on the turf after the play and left the game with concussion symptoms. FSU bounced right back with a 77-yard kickoff return by Lamarcus Joyner, but Notre Dame’s fifth sack of the night on Manuel helped force the Seminoles to settle for a 42-yard field goal by Hopkins. Safety Terrance Brooks, who had a late interception to help seal the win, said belief in themselves is the biggest thing they will carry into next season. “Just go out there and do it,” he said. “You know you’ve got it in you. We went out there and read our keys and got the job done.”

Suns sign veteran guard Redd to 1-year deal

PHOENIX (AP) — The Phoenix Suns have signed All-Star guard Michael Redd to a one-year contract. Suns president of basketball operations Lon Babby said Thursday that Redd is a proven scorer. He averaged 20 points in 11 seasons with the Milwaukee Bucks. Redd was in the final season of a sixyear, $91 million deal he signed with the Bucks in 2005. Two injuries to his left knee cost him large chunks of three straight seasons. The 6-foot-6 guard was the 43rd overall pick of the 2000 NBA draft by the Bucks, his only pro team.

possession and Olguin made the Pirates pay when he sunk two free throws to push Roswell into the lead for the remainder of the game. With 1:55 left, Luis Arenivas made it 58-55 with a runner in the lane and Grants couldn’t make up the three-point difference. The Pirates got one last look at a potential gamewinner when Zeller hit Reuben Hands’ in the left corner for a wide-open triple try. Hands shot clanked the back iron as time expired. “It was the same thing

combined to score 47 points (31 of which came from Vander Hulst), grabbed 21 rebounds, blocked five shots and came up with four steals. Jones was particularly impressed with the versatile Vander Hulst’s play. “He was blocking shots, rebounding, bringing the ball up the floor,” he said.

“He can do it all. He is not the fastest kid we have but he can do it all. He is also deceptively strong. He has gained 20 pounds from last season to this season and if you shut him down, you have to deal with Sweet and Johnson.” Chase Salazar added 18 points for Goddard (11-0).

play. That’s history. It doesn’t matter anymore to Wilfork. “Our main goal is playing good football,” he said. “You can’t compare any other season to this one because each one is different. You have different players. You have different coaches. You have different teams in the playoffs. So you really can’t compare.” The Patriots (12-3) would get the No. 1 seed and home advantage for two AFC playoff games, if they win the first, as long as they don’t lose to Buffalo at Gillette Stadium. They had won all seven playoff games there before the loss to Baltimore. Since it opened in 2002, they’re 21-2 at home in regular-season games in December and January. Even if they fall to Buffalo, which ended a seven-game losing streak last Saturday, the Patriots would clinch the top seed if both the Ravens and Pittsburgh Steelers lose or tie on Sunday. “I (couldn’t) care less where we play,” Wilfork said. “(The) only thing for sure now is we have one game in the regular season left and one playoff game right now. So where it is? Who knows? One, two seed, who knows? I really don’t care.” Not now, anyway, with his focus on simply winning the next game. Do that, and the Patriots wouldn’t have to travel until the Super Bowl in Indianapolis, if they get that far. “Let’s just win this game,” guard Brian Waters said. “If you take care of your business on the football field those things take care of themselves. If you concern yourself with those things, it’s just another one of those things that takes up time that you can be putting into preparation against your opponent.” Like Ellis, James Ihedigbo was with the Jets last season. Now he’s starting at safety for the Patriots, who are 6-1 at home. “Anytime that you can have that homefield advantage, I think it’s a big key to being successful in the postseason,” he said. Their first playoff game will be at home but that’s more than two weeks away. Now the focus is on beating the Bills. “We’re preparing for this game like we’ve prepared for the last 15,” coach Bill Belichick said. When the playoffs come, Ellis doesn’t expect the Patriots to rely too much on the friendly crowd to pull them through. “You can’t, because it’s one game,” he said. “You bring your best or you go home.” Like the past two seasons, it wouldn’t be a long trip.

Pats in good shape for home advantage in playoffs

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — All the New England Patriots need to gain homefield advantage throughout the AFC playoffs is a win or tie against the struggling Buffalo Bills on Sunday. It didn’t do the Patriots much good the past two years. Last season, they earned the conference’s top seed, but were stunned 28-21 in their first game by the New York Jets who sacked Tom Brady five times. The previous season, they lost the wild-card game, 33-14 to the Baltimore Ravens in front of their own fans who booed them in the first quarter. Home-field advantage? Not if you play poorly. Patriots defensive end Shaun Ellis was with the Jets last season and had two sacks in the playoff win over the Patriots. Still, “It’s very important to be able to play all your games at home with your home fans behind you,” he said Thursday. “It’s a good thing, but you’ve got to win those games, too.” In the loss to the Ravens, nose tackle Vince Wilfork was shoved aside, opening a huge hole for Ray Rice to run 83 yards for a touchdown on the game’s first offensive

over there,” Cooper said, alluding to Roswell’s 5958 win over the Pirates on Dec. 10 in the championship game of the Grants Invitational. “It came down to the last shot. We were very fortunate to win.” Olguin finished as the only Coyote in double figures with 13. Warner had nine and Cesar Nava and Ricky Sanchez each had eight. Zeller led all scorers with 17 and had 11 rebounds. Logan Lewis chipped in 13 and Hands had 10. The Coyotes square off with crosstown rival Goddard in the championship game of the Invitational today at 2 p.m. kjkeller@rdrnews.com

DEAR ABBY: I recently found out that my boyfriend of three years — the only man I have ever been with — cheated on me with a woman I thought was a good friend. I love him and have decided to take him back and fight for what we had. He assured me that he wants to be only with me, that what he did was “stupid” and he has learned his lesson. Abby, although I have forgiven him, I can’t bring myself to forgive HER. I have never been someone who holds a grudge, but I have so much hate for her that it scares me. I did get professional help, but it didn’t work. I don’t want to be like this. This is not who I am. I’m worried about

DEAR MOVING FORWARD: Probably because having invested three years in the “only man you have ever been with,” you don’t want it to have been for nothing — so you’re directing the anger you still feel toward HIM at the woman you would like to imagine seduced him. (Remember, it takes two to tango.) Also, you may still regard her as a threat. While you may have forgiven your boyfriend, do not forget what happened. A man who cheats and blames it on “stupidity” may do it again with someone else. You need to understand why he did what he did. Is he someone who lives only in the moment? Did he not consider how it would affect you? Is he capable of fidelity in the long run? From my perspective, you need answers to these questions because you may only now be getting to know who he really is.

Dear Heloise: My husband and I take several long driving trips a year and have found the following very helpful: * Take several zip-top bags in all sizes to use for keeping snack items fresh. * Take a bottle of window cleaner and paper towels to wash off your windows, headlights and taillights. This is important if you’re going somewhere with lots of bugs or traveling in slushy, snowy conditions. * Carry with you the address and telephone number of where you are staying so you have it, if needed; also, include your neighbors’ telephone numbers back home in case you need to contact them. * Keep a container of moist wipes in the car. * Take extra checks for your checkbook if you are staying an extended length of time. * Take the charger for your cellphone. * Take books on CD or audiotape to listen to. It’s amazing how much shorter the drive seems when listening to a good book. A Heloise Fan from Findlay, Ohio

The Wizard of Id

Dear Heloise: As a senior citizen whose memory has seen better days, I have discovered the best way for me to keep track of my many (mostly doctors) appointments. On Sunday, I look at my calendar and write down on a small piece of brightly colored paper all my appointments for that week. I then tape the paper to the bottom of my bathroom mirror, the one place I know I will see it many times on a daily basis! About earrings, if I have trouble getting them to slide into the lobe, I take the post and dip it in the opening of a little tube of antibiotic cream, which puts a thin coating of the cream on it. I have done this for years. Dena in Silver Spring, Md.

Noel Rockmore, ‘Picasso of New Orleans,’ revisited Roswell Daily Record

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — In the four -block radius where he painted and drank himself into frightening stupors, Noel Rockmore was known by the denizens of the French Quarter as an outrageous Pablo Picasso-like figure who combined the mythological and the real. He produced some 15,000 oil paintings, temperas, collages and sketches over his career and then died in obscurity. His life was that of an American outsider and a throwback to Europe’s great expressionistic and hedonistic masters. In the 1950s, when he was still in his 20s, his paintings hung in the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Museum of Modern Art and the Hirshhorn Museum. He was a bright young American artist who had a taste for Rembrandt and figurative paintings, with the outlook of an American social realist. Then, the art world changed: Abstract expressionism — typified by the paint throwing of Jackson Pollock — became the rave. Rockmore, who admired draftsmanship in painting, detested it. Rockmore changed: He left his wife and three children, changed his last name and headed to New Orleans in 1959, where he would eventually get lost to the New York art world. The story of Noel Montgomery Davis (his real name) is getting a longoverdue audience outside New Orleans, a city that is enjoying something of an art renaissance itself six years after Hurricane Katrina. From now until the end of January, his works are on view at the LaGrange Art Museum in Georgia. The retrospective is called “Creative Obscurity: The Genius Noel Rockmore.” “He was kind of an art hobo,” said Ethyl Ault, interim director of the LaGrange Art Museum. She said Rockmore was an overlooked genius. “Was it politics? Did he offend people? Why was he so popular in New York when he was younger, and then he leaves, changes his name and then goes on into his fairy tale land?” The show is based on nearly 1,500 Rockmore artworks retrieved from storage units in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. For 25 years, Shirley Marvin, an octogenarian Baton Rouge patron, had been saving Rockmore artworks and memorabilia with the intention of making him famous one day. But she had forgotten about the collection due to

short-term memory loss, her family said. Marvin was one of Rockmore’s most devoted fans. She saw genius in him — like many others in New Orleans. The extraordinary collection was gathering dust when her son, Rich Marvin, took her down to New Orleans in October 2006, a year after Katrina, to get “a few paintings,” as her mother described it. Instead, they found the units packed with remnants of Rockmore’s life. In the wake of the collection’s discovery, Rich and his wife, Tee Marvin, have become Rockmore’s biggest impresarios — the agents Rockmore famously refused to have throughout his life as he willfully lived on the edge of the art world. He was notorious among art galleries for his temper and fits of outrage. His friends say he suffered emotional problems for much of his life. The Marvins — working with Rockmore’s family and art dealers, collectors and museum curators — have begun cataloging his works and promoting him. They estimate he produced about 15,000 pieces of art and conservatively 750 to 1,000 of those are masterpieces. “At first we thought my mom was crazy,” Rich Marvin said. “When a museum or gallery lines up his top 200 exquisite works, people will be as stunned as we are.” Rockmore was born in 1928 in New York to a family of artists. He was supertalented. A child prodigy, he played the violin well by age 8. After suffering polio at age 10, he tur ned to painting. He studied briefly at The Juilliard School and had a studio at the Cooper Union. Family friends included Ernest Hemingway, George Gershwin and Thomas Mann. His 20s were prolific as he painted the bums of the Bowery district, monkeys and elephants in the backstage of the Ringling Brothers Circus and parables of Central Park and Coney Island. He was a social realist, akin to Depressionera American painters such as John Steuart Curry, but these early works contained themes and artistic styles that would stay with him: death, violence, sex, the surreal and the allegorical. In retrospect, it was the ghoulish and morbid in Rockmore that defined him, making him a kind of American Hieronymus Bosch. In the 1950s, Rockmore became fed up with the

wave of abstract expressionists then taking hold of New York — the flat tones and humanless canvases of Willem De Kooning, Pollock, Mark Rothko and Barnett Newman. During this period he drank heavily and his wife kicked him out because of his wildness, his daughter, Emilie Heller-Rhys, said. At age 31, he moved down to New Orleans and began working with Larry Borenstein, an art collector, and Allan Jaffe, a business school graduate and tuba player. In the 1960s, Borenstein employed Rockmore as a kind of resident painter for a new society he’d formed with Jaffe to preserve traditional New Orleans jazz music. The society would become Preservation Hall. Rockmore was commissioned to paint the old-time musicians. He captured the mood, scent, touch and smoke of New Orleans jazz and its musicians — Punch Miller, Percy Humphrey, Louis Nelson, Sweet Emma and Billie and DeDe Pierce, and scores of others. His output was staggering. He’d become fixated by a subject — New Orleans’ Carnival traditions, the frenetic Port of New Orleans, the characters of the French Quarter, alien beings, ancient Egypt, voodoo — and mined it artistically. Some of his most cherished and memorable pieces are of the Quarter’s Bohemians, fellow outsiders: Ruthie the Duck Girl; Gypsy Lou; O.M. (standing for “Old Man”); Mike Stark; Johnny White; and Sister Gertrude Morgan. Yet, his life was pierced by that dark side. “He was a brilliant artist, and I don’t use those words lightly,” said Stephen Clayton, a New Orleans art collector who did not know Rockmore and does not own any of his works. “He chose to come here, came to the Quarter, climbed in a bottle and never got out.” From his morning vodka, Rockmore kept going all day, muscling his way through sketches, wallsized oils, nudes in charcoal, sculptures and mixed media and calling it quits at one of his favorite bars, often The Alpine, within shouting distance of the St. Louis cathedral and his bed. There are stories of him trashing art galleries and studios. Handcuf fing a woman to his stove. Sticking a mummified cat in one of his works. Going on lithium and alcohol binges that left him a wreck. Cursing at

Sitting in streets with his muddy tennis shoes and rumpled clothing, looking like a bum. Drawing on napkins, grocery bags and just about anything else he liked. Sitting in bars, drinking and trying to get women to go to bed with him. One of Rockmore’s closest friends, Andy Antippas, a former Tulane University poetry professor and art gallery owner, recalled going into Rockmore’s apartment during one of his lithium binges and finding his studio in a state that resembled the home of Charles Manson. “It was trashed,” said Antippas, who found pages from Playboy magazine littering the floor and feces from his two dogs in the middle of his bed. “He’d obviously been sitting in one place and drinking and painting for hours.” “Noel was an autodidact of the highest order,” Antippas said. “There was probably no artist more prolific than Noel — except perhaps Picasso.” Antippas is like many Rockmore fans. He believes he was a genius, a master who ranks among the greatest. In his home on St. Claude Avenue — cluttered with books, paintings, decorated human skulls, African masks and paint-

ings galore — Antippas stood in front of a large subdued painting hanging on the wall near his desk. He looked at it and said he owned what he believed to be “one of the finest paintings, if not the best, painting in Western civilization, a nude portrait of his father. It’s the only such painting ever done.” “He couldn’t relate to the real world. He lived in his own world; he was driven by his own work,” said Rita Posselt, a 59-year-old fine art photographer who lived with Rockmore between 1978 and 1984 and frequently posed for him. “He would wake up in the morning and go to bed at night, and in between those hours there was a lot of torment for him.” “He wanted somebody to recognize his talent, and he wanted important people in the art world, museums and such, to do so, but he didn’t want to jump through hoops and parties to make it happen.” During his life, and still today, Rockmore was a kind of New Orleans project. He is woven into the city. Anyone who has stepped into the gloom of Preservation Hall has seen Rockmores — they’re the haunting oil paintings of jazz greats on the walls.

scene, a token of appreciation for the bar owner, Johnny White, and typically Rockmore: There are three teams on the field. His paintings hang in the Old Mint, the New Orleans Museum of Art, the Ogden Museum of Southern Art, and on the walls of galleries and homes throughout New Orleans. And who knows where else. “My feeling was that Noel was the most democratic painter,” Antippas said. “Every waiter, bartender, in the Quarter has a Rockmore. God knows how many Rockmores are hanging on walls throughout the city.” Rockmore died in 1995 at age 66 of an untreated infection. When he was taken to the hospital, according to friends, he was admitted as a “street person.” According to his friends, he sat up on the gurney and declared, “I’m not a street person, I’m a great artist.” “I always say that he is America’s Picasso,” said Heller-Rhys, his daughter and an accomplished artist herself, as she stood during a recent visit outside the Skyscraper building, an 18th-century apartment building where Rockmore — and many other artists, including Charles Bukowski — stayed in the 1970s. “And America has to come to terms with that.”
