SCOTUS could avoid marriage ruling

WASHINGTON (AP) — Former President Bill Clinton’s 8,300-square-foot Harlem office near the Apollo Theater costs taxpayers nearly $450,000. George W. Bush spends $85,000 on telephone fees, and another $60,000 on travel. Jimmy Carter sends $15,000 worth of postage — all on the government’s dime. - PAGE A5


WASHINGTON (AP) — The Supreme Court suggested Tuesday it could find a way out of the case over Califor nia’s ban on same-sex marriage without issuing a major national ruling on whether America’s gays have a right to marry.


March 27, 2013

Several justices, including some liberals who seemed open to gay marriage, raised doubts during a riveting 80-minute argument that the case should even be before them. And Justice Anthony Kennedy, the potentially decisive vote on a closely divided court, suggested that the court could dismiss it with no ruling at all.

almost certainly allow gay marriages to resume in California but would have no impact elsewhere. Kennedy said he feared the court would go into “uncharted waters” if it embraced arguments advanced by gay marriage supporters. But lawyer Theodore Olson, representing two same-sex couples, said that the court similarly ventured into the unknown in 1967 when it struck down bans on interracial marriage in 16 states.

Kennedy challenged the accuracy of that comment by noting that other countries had had interracial marriages for hundreds of years.

There was no majority apparent for any particular outcome and many doubts expressed about the arguments advanced by lawyers for the opponents of gay marriage in California, by the supporters and by the Obama administration, which is in favor of samesex marriage rights. Kennedy made clear he did not like the rationale of the federal appeals court that struck down Proposition 8, the California ban, even though it cited earlier opinions in favor of gay rights that Kennedy wrote. That appeals court ruling applied only to California, where same-sex couples

Senator Tom Udall visits with veterans upon his arrival at the Roswell Public Library, Tuesday afternoon.

In effort to better serve constituents, U.S. Sen. Tom Udall, D-N.M., visited Roswell Tuesday to meet with members of the agricultural community and veterans from around southeastern New Mexico. Udall recently joined the Senate Appropriations Committee and also serves on subcommittees that deal with issues such as agriculture, rural development and veterans affairs. The senator will hold several meetings throughout the week in other counties to hear from leaders involved in those topics. “Knowing what’s going on here on the ground each day allows me to ask the tough questions of agencies and take care of constituents,” he said. “I never forget who elected me. My job is to help them and be their voice.” Udall first attended a roundtable discussion on agricultural and drought issues at Easter n New Mexico University-Roswell, which featured local farmers, ranchers and representatives from organizations such as the New Mexico Cattle Growers Association and the New Mexico Hay Association. The drought has hit the dairy industry particularly hard, said Beverly Idsinga, executive director of Dairy Producers of New Mexico, who brought along her 9month-old daughter, Charley. Last year, the state lost nine dairies and has lost four so far this year. There are 147 dairies in New Mexico, she said, down from a high of 185 in 2006. “We’ve lost very large dairies,” she said. “It’s just been miserable.” At that point, Charley cried out. “She’s very

Gov inks bill to aid Cyprus banks remain closed military members

SANTA FE (AP) — Gov. Susana Martinez signed legislation into law on Tuesday to aid New Mexico veterans, including requiring the state to expedite occupational licenses allowing military service members and their spouses to work in jobs ranging from nursing to dentistry.

The new law applies to current members of the armed forces, their spouses and recently discharged veterans with professional licenses from other states who are seeking to work in New Mexico. It will cover a

wide range of licensed professionals such as barbers, architects and veterinarians as well as health care providers, including physicians, pharmacists, dentists and physical therapists. “When military families and recent veterans move to New Mexico, we have to make it easier for them to support themselves and get to work,” the governor said in a statement after signing the legislation during a ceremony in Albuquerque at See BILL, Page A3

UTEP bomb threat EL PASO, Texas (AP) — A campus-wide evacuation was ordered as a precaution at the University of Texas at El Paso on Tuesday after officials received word of a bomb threat, but police said there was no immediate danger. UTEP students and staff got a text message about 2 p.m. warning of a bomb threat and telling them to leave campus. Students were seen hurrying away shortly afterward, and the roads around campus were congested with traffic. UTEP Police Chief Cliff Walsh declined to detail the threat or say whether police had a suspect, citing their ongoing investigation. But he said the campus appeared to be safe. UTEP said in a statement late Tuesday that the campus was reopened by 7 p.m. “This is a precautionary measure that we took out of prudence and what can transpire around the world,” Walsh said.

Classes were expected to resume Wednesday evening. UTEP has more than 22,000 students enrolled.

Several college campuses in the state, including the University of Texas at Austin and Texas A&M University, also have ordered evacuations in recent months due to reports of threats. None of the threats has tur ned out to be anything threatening. Students seemed to react to the latest evacuation with more confusion and bemusement than fear.

Conor Bellegrade told The Associated Press that he was in the library doing homework when he got the text message about the evacuation and then an email. But when he looked around to see what others were doing, he didn’t see anyone bolting for the doors.

A few minutes later voices somewhere in the building started shouting to leave the library, he said.

Carlsbad shooting CARLSBAD (AP) — Authorities say agents with the Pecos Valley Drug Task Force have fatally shot a wanted man at a Carlsbad motel. New Mexico State Police say task force agents on Monday were trying to locate 35-year-old Wesley Davis, who had an outstanding felony narcotics warrant. After arriving at the motel, agents say they saw Davis exiting a room. As they were trying to arrest Davis, an altercation ensued and shots were fired by agents. They say Davis was struck two times. Davis was transported to the Carlsbad Medical Center, where he died. His body was transported to the medical examiner in Albuquerque for an autopsy. State police say they’re investigating the shooting of Davis, who was an Artesia resident.

Smoking ban SANTA FE (AP) — State Land Commissioner Ray Powell is prohibiting smoking, open fires and fireworks on state trust land because of the risk of wildfires. Powell announced the restrictions on Monday. He said the potential for human-caused fires is high because of drought conditions as well as recent high winds. The Land Office manages

nine million acres of stateowned land and 13 million acres of subsurface rights to oil, natural gas and minerals. Revenue from grazing, mining and oil and gas production on state trust lands helps support public schools and other state institutions. Powell said the Legislature approved $500,000 for the Land Office starting in July to reduce fire risks by thinning forests and other prevention efforts.

Pedro Quezada, the winner of the Powerball jackpot, holds up a promotional check during a press conference at the New Jersey Lottery headquarters, Tuesday.

$338 million, 1 ticket L AW R E N C E V I L L E , N.J. (AP) — A New Jersey man says he felt “pure joy” at winning a $338 million Powerball jackpot but has no idea what he will do with the money — except buy a car, to replace his feet as his primary mode of transportation. Dominican immigrant Pedro Quezada, 45, and his wife, Ines, appeared at New Jersey lottery headquarters Tuesday to officially claim the prize. Both came in jeans, accompanied by four of his eight siblings and two nephews. The for mer bodega owner -operator, who came to the United States from the city of Jarabacoa 26 years ago, said his mind is not clear enough yet to figure out how he will use the money or where he might live. He did say he could use a good car. Asked what kind of car he has now, he said, “My feet.” Lottery officials said Quezada had decided to accept the winnings in the form of a lump-sum payment worth $221 million, or about $152 million after taxes. It’s the fourth-largest jackpot in Powerball history. He showed up Monday afternoon at the liquor

store in Passaic where he purchased the ticket, not knowing if he held the winner. The ticket was validated at 4:17 p.m., giving him less than 24 hours to weigh his future as a multimillionaire before appearing at the press conference. He said he would share his winnings with family members and would use some to help his community, though he didn’t yet know how. He said his wife of nine years, Ines Sanchez, could have “whatever she wants.” When he realized he had won, he said, “I felt pure joy, just happiness.” Up until last year, Quezada had worked 15hour days at a bodega in his adopted hometown of Passaic, in northern New Jersey. His son now runs the small grocery. He said his bodega days are over, and given all the money he won, he doesn’t plan to let his son keep working there, either. “All I can say is I feel very happy that God has blessed us with this prize,” said Sanchez, who is from Tlaxcala, Mexico. Quezada is the father of five children, ranging in age from 23 to 5. He has one grandchild.

Minister Finance Michalis Sarris told The Associated Press the restrictions would help stem any mass deposit withdrawal that is “bound to happen” and that they would be removed in a “relatively short period of time.” “I think every day (banks) are not open creates more uncertainty and more difficulties for people, so we would like to do

Illinois, Nevada, New Jersey, Oregon and Rhode Island. Justice Samuel Alito described gay marriage as newer than such rapidly changing technological advances as cellphones and the Internet, and appeared to advocate a more cautious approach to the issue. “You want us to assess the effect of same-sex marriage,” Alito said to Solicitor General Donald Verrilli. “It may turn out to be a good thing. It may turn out to be not a good thing.” Charles Cooper, representing the people who helped get Proposition 8 on the ballot, ran into similar and track the species through a $1 million pilot eradication project. Nationally, the species causes $1.5 billion in property damage annually, he said, and contaminates water supplies for people and livestock, leading to diseases that could be fatal. Udall helped secure the funding for the program and said feral swine is a serious issue and New Mexico is the right place to set up model that can be from another state and has met minimum credentialing requirements similar to those in New Mexico.

All but two of the country’s largest lenders had been due to reopen Tuesday, after being shut since March 16 to stop savers from withdrawing all their money while politicians figured out how to raise the funds necessary for Cyprus to qualify for an international bailout. However, late Monday, authorities announced that the bank closures would be extended until Thursday, giving officials more time to initiate a major overhaul of the banking sector and devise capital controls to limit the amount of money that can be taken out of accounts. “We have to all understand that we live in very critical times. Officials of


resistance over his argument that the court should uphold the ban as a valid expression of the people’s will and let the vigorous political debate over gay marriage continue. Here, Kennedy suggested that Cooper’s argument did not take account of the estimated 40,000 children who have same-sex parents. “The voices of these children are important, don’t you think?” Kennedy said. If the court is to find the exit without making a decision about gay marriage, it has two basic options. It could rule that the gay marriage opponents have no right, or legal standing,

to defend Proposition 8 in court. Such an outcome also would leave in place the trial court decision in favor of the two same-sex couples who sued for the right to marry. On a practical level, California officials probably would order county clerks across the state to begin issuing marriage licenses to gay and lesbian couples, although some more conservative counties might object. Chief Justice John Roberts and Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg had the sharpest questions for Cooper on the issue of standing. The justices also could determine that they should

followed as to how to approach it. The senator later met with riders and drivers of the SENM Veterans Transportation Network at the Roswell Public Library. Udall said the concerns of veterans have been a high priority for him because “veterans were here for us, so we need to be there for them.” Driver Diane Stallard said the network’s trips are typically 12 hours, departing from Roswell at

Under the deal for a 10 billion euro ($12.9 billion) rescue clinched in Brussels early Monday, Cyprus agreed to slash its oversized banking sector and inflict hefty losses on large depositors in troubled banks. Sarris said authorities hope to limit job losses to a “small number.” The bank will be broken up immediately into a socalled bad bank containing its uninsured deposits and toxic assets. The “good” assets will be transferred to the nation’s biggest lender, Bank of Cyprus. Deposits at Bank of Cyprus above 100,000 euros will be frozen until it becomes clear to what extent they will also be

forced to take losses. Those funds will eventually be converted into bank shares. Cyprus’ gover nment Christos spokesman Stylianides told Greek state Net TV that losses on Bank of Cyprus deposits above 100,000 euros will hover at around 30 percent. Sarris said Cyprus’ economy will shift from one centered on financial services. “Cypriots have a robust entrepreneurial spirit, they will look for other markets. ... We’re building on our relationship with China, a stronger relationship with the Middle East, our shipping sector is doing well, our tourism sector is doing well, I think we will find opportunities to compensate for this serious setback,” he said.

Many expressed frustration at the U.S. government’s seeming lack of effort to care for veterans. As much as the government says it hears and understands veteran needs, “we don’t see things happening,” said self-driver Charlie Daniels.

In that situation, the court issues a one-sentence order dismissing the case “as improvidently granted.” The effect is to leave in place the appeals court ruling, which in the case of Proposition 8, applies only to Califor nia. The appeals court also voted to strike down the ban, but on somewhat dif ferent grounds than the trial court. The Supreme Court waded into the fight over same-sex marriage at a time when public opinion is shifting rapidly in favor of “Some little action would be much appreciated,”he said.

Affordable Care Act will devastate health care in America

Last week, politicians who helped craft the Affordable Care Act celebrated in self-congratulatory style the third anniversary of that monstrosity which will soon extinguish health care as we’ve known it. The president’s promises about the ACA saving money and allowing you to keep your existing health plan are proving false, as many predicted. The Department of Health and Human Services maintains the law will make health care more affordable and accessible. The Wall Street Journal, reminding readers of that claim, reported last week that health insurers are privately warning brokers: “premiums for many individuals and small businesses could increase sharply next year.” The 2013 Deloitte Survey of U.S. Physicians, a survey of more than 600 physicians from the Deloitte Center for Health Solutions, found that “Six in 10 physicians (62 percent) said it is likely many of their colleagues will retire earlier than




planned in the next one to three years.” Based on the survey results, Deloitte found that most U.S. physicians believe that, among other worries, under Obamacare, “The future of the medical profession may be in jeopardy as it loses clinical autonomy and compensation” and “Medicaid and Medicare reimbursements may be problematic, prompting many physicians to limit or close their practices to these enrollees.” Instead of the established doctor-patient relationship of old, “eight in 10 physicians agree “that the wave of the

future in medicine ... involves interdisciplinary teams and care coordinators.” One who thinks he’s seen the future and doesn’t like it, is my physician, Dr. John Curry of Fairfax, Va. At my request, he sent me the following email: “Forty years ago, when I began practicing primary care medicine, medical decision-making and its funding were in the hands of patients and their physicians. The only protection patients had lay in the professional ethics of their doctors. In modern terms that sounds pretty skimpy, but think about it for a minute. The first precept was ‘Do no harm.’ Ask yourself: can you hold your government to that standard? “The underlying principle was that the physician had to put his patients’ interests ahead of his own. This was, of course, the Golden Rule, formalized into standards for professional care. It was also the reason I, and many in my class, applied to medical school. It was the reason my wife’s older

Roswell Daily Record

brother, who practiced medicine in a small town in West Texas, prided himself on the fact that much of the time he ‘was paid in peas and pies.’ Again, ask yourself, is there any health insurance company or government agency that you can count upon to put your health above their interests? “The decades have rolled by, and the sea-changes have come. Costs have risen, and personalized care has faded. The monstrosity has been birthed, and soon you will look in vain if you are seeking a personal physician who knows you, cares about you, and to whom you have ready access. You will find only systems, ready to suck you up, give you a number, and provide you with federally approved accountable care in a sterile environment populated by highly regulated strangers. And it will cost you a lot! (Whatever anyone says, prepare for a future where your health costs will be higher and your choices fewer!) “I am in my mid-70s and have

both the capacity and willingness to care for patients for another decade. But I am retiring. I cannot stand it anymore. More than half of my time in the office is spent filling out forms, writing letters, responding to inquiries, and attending to ‘urgent’ matters that did not exist 10 years ago. And every year my income is less. At this point I would rather be paid nothing and have the freedom to decide what is right for my patients. ACA is only another straw, but for this tired camel, it will break my back.” Neither I, nor the country, can afford to lose doctors like John Curry, but we are and we will. Take two aspirin, but don’t call in the morning because Dr. Curry and many like him won’t be there to answer the phone.

Laboring to like president’s pick

Our friends at the Wall Street Journal didn’t get much cooperation from the various individuals mentioned in its editorial last week concerning the curious case of Thomas Perez, President Barack Obama’s nominee to be his second-term labor secretary. The Journal maintains that Perez, now head of the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division, “strong-arm(ed)” St. Paul, Minn., to withdraw a case last year that was about to be heard by the U.S. Supreme Court. Magner v. Gallagher challenged the notion, championed by Perez, that racial discrimination can be proven simply by looking at numbers, rather than actually ascertaining intent or examining cases. As a quid pro quo for withdrawing its case, Perez promised the city of St. Paul that Justice would make two pending False Claims Act cases it was facing go away. That represented a potential savings to St. Paul of millions of dollars. St. Paul acquiesced. It issued a press release explaining that if it prevailed in its Supreme Court case, “such a result could completely eliminate ‘disparate impact’ civil rights enforcement.” Perez won the day. So now banks that don’t issue home loans to minorities in proportion to their share of the population — no matter the reasons why — are at greater risk of disparate-impact judgments. When the Journal contacted persons of interest both in St. Paul and Washington to get their sides of the story, it was met with a silence that doesn’t speak well of the transparency the city of St. Paul promises its residents, nor the openness to which the Obama administration professes to be committed. David Lillehaug, the attorney advising St. Paul on one of its two false-claims cases, known as Newell, “declined comment.” Lillehaug was a colleague of Thomas Fraser. Fraser was a former colleague of Perez. Fraser referred Perez to Lillehaug. The city of St. Paul “did not respond” to questions about a February 2012 meeting among Mayor Chris Coleman, Deputy Mayor Paul Williams, City Attorney Sara Grewing and Lillehaug and Perez, his deputy and Eric Halperin. It is in that meeting the deal between Justice and the city of St. Paul was cut. The Justice Department “didn’t respond” to requests to speak to Mr. Perez. Left unanswered was why he “connected” Housing and Urban Development assistant secretary Sara Pratt with Mr. Lillehaug, after which HUD backed away from its recommendation that Justice join the Newell lawsuit against St. Paul. President Obama lauded Perez as “a consensus-builder.” But if the consensus he built between Justice, HUD and St. Paul is a portent of what he would bring to Labor, we think him an unsuitable candidate for the post.

Still, it’s a misery most of us would rather avoid. Colds are caused by viruses — more than 200 different types. Because the infection is not bacterial, antibiotics don’t help. Over-the-counter cold medicines are available, but not always effective. So the search continues for anything that can fend off cold-causing viruses or speed their exit from your body. Here is a rundown of some of the candidates. — Vitamins. Nobel laureate Linus Pauling proposed that large daily doses — 1,000 to 2,000 milligrams (mg) — of vitamin C could prevent colds. Pauling was a genius who made major scientific discoveries and was awarded the Nobel Prize. But even geniuses can be wrong. By and large, research hasn’t supported his assertion.

It’s time to push for jobs, prosperity, affordable energy Following the Conservative Political Action Conference — known as CPAC — it has been reported that the faithful feel discouraged, dispirited and defeated. Dr. Ben Carson, who emerged from the conference as the new conservative darling, has stated that America is heading for failure. Generally, I agree. However, I see a chink in the armor. The alliance of the environmental lobby and big government advocates have been winning — Obama is back in the White House, the new cabinet members seem worse than the last and the Keystone pipeline has become a battle line. With the victory, however, they’ve perhaps gotten over-confident and



pushed too hard. They’ve had a series of losses that have put them on the defense — and everyone knows, you win on the offense. Their losses haven’t made headline news — making them easy to miss, and the alliance is not likely to beat a hasty retreat, but looking at them added together, I see an opening for a breakthrough. In case you missed them, here


There’s some evidence that vitamins D and E might help fend off respiratory infections, but the evidence is not strong enough to recommend either vitamin for cold-fighting purposes. — Echinacea. The research hasn’t been very encouraging. One review found some evidence that a certain part of one particular species of the Echinacea plant family might be an effective early treatment for

are some of the recent reversals they’ve received: • On March 20, the Supreme Court shot down “overzealous greens” that hoped to “hobble the logging industry by reclassifying rural storm water runoff under the Clean Water Act’s ‘point source’ standards, which require costly federal permits.” The court ruled: “more effective regulation could be done by states and state foresters.” • On March 19, the Obama Administration scrapped “a series of graphic warning labels on cigarette packages that were blocked by a federal appeals court” — a win for the “tobacco industry’s free-speech rights under the First Amendment.” Howard Koh, assistant secretary

colds in adults. Not exactly a ringing endorsement. Other plant-based treatments, such as ginseng, elderberry, garlic and olive leaf, have been offered as cold preventives and cures. But none has emerged as clearly effective. — Zinc. The results have been mixed. A 2011 meta-analysis found that generally healthy people who took zinc within 24 hours of the onset of cold symptoms reduced the duration and severity of their colds, compared to people who took a sugar pill. But there’s no word yet on what dose and formulation of zinc is best. — Exercise. Here’s another reason to work out. Regular exercise may put your body in a better position to fight off a cold. Regular exercise seems to invigorate the immune system. (But there is also some evidence that the kind of intensive training that top athletes engage in can actually weaken the immune system.) — Sleep. Your mother was right: Getting

Dianne Feinstein’s gunban bill became a victim of friendly fire when, in a March 18 meeting, Majority Leader Harry Reid notified a “frustrated Feinstein” that her assault-weapon ban “wouldn’t be part of a Democratic gun bill.” The exclusion means “almost certain defeat” but, according to the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence’s Ladd Everitt, it has “fired up gun violence prevention advocates.” • On March 15, hyper-liberal

a good night’s sleep keeps you healthy and may keep colds away. In one study, people who got less than seven hours of sleep a night were almost three times as likely to get a cold as those who got eight or more hours of sleep. I know I’m going to get letters from people who swear that a vitamin, or an herbal preparation, or zinc works for them. I’m not really disagreeing with them. Studies ask whether a particular treatment works for the average person. A treatment that does not work for the average person still may work for some people. Perhaps they have different genes. If you’re convinced a treatment helps you, and if it doesn’t pose any risk (and most of those above don’t), then why not use it? (Dr. Komaroff is a physician and professor at Harvard Medical School.

Veterans’ Cemetery makes progress despite setbacks Roswell Daily Record

Things appear to be progressing, despite some information brought to my attention that the Mayor’s office is dropping little “bombs” of discouragement to people who are trying to create our local veterans’ cemetery. The comments made to private contracting entities and local funeral home staff was “don’t get involved with those people” or “I wouldn’t get involved with those people” (“people” being representatives of the land donors, i.e., Bert Eldridge, Harry McGraw and other people involved in creating our new veterans’ cemetery). Two of the incidents are based on secondhand information, but two of the incidents were from firsthand sources. Positive credibility verification of half the incidences makes it “more likely than not” the information is true. Additionally, if the same exact words (from separate, different sources) were reported in the verified

incidents, then it seems highly likely the secondhand information was also accurate. It’s sad that our local people working on this project would be treated to such childish and damaging “attacks.” What makes this attitude on the part of a person or persons in the Mayor’s office totally abominable is that the comments (or possible veiled threats) are being directed at people who had expressed an interest in volunteering time and/or services to create our veterans’ final resting place. One comment I overheard was, “and this is coming from people who aren’t veterans and have never served in the military.” Now, maybe that’s an unfair comment, but neither is the attempted “sabotage” apparently directed at the land donors representatives. Bert Eldridge and Harry McGraw have had several encounters with the Mayor’s

representative concerning who will be providing the necessary operations planning and projected costs involved in the various phases of the project. The Mayor, in a recent monthly City Hall meeting, expressed his desire to use an Albuquerque firm to provide the project planning diagrams and layout concepts (at a much greater cost than a local, experienced firm was providing). His concept was to build our veterans cemetery meeting the VA national cemeteries specifications, so that at one point in time, the federal government

could take over the upkeep and expenses as they currently do with existing national cemeteries. His plan has definite merit, but the possibility of having a VA National Cemetery in Roswell being approved by the government has the same chance as the approval for the Washington Monument being moved to our Pioneer Plaza downtown. That’s not pessimism or negativity. That’s a hard, cold fact voiced to me by credible government authorities. Subsequently, in a recent meeting between City Hall and the land donors representatives, the Mayor said that was not his intention, and that somebody must have misunderstood his comments. Recorded video from that City Hall meeting would beg to differ. Eldridge and McGraw have expressed deep concern that negative attitudes coming from the Mayor’s office might creep into the permit

approvals from the city as the project progresses. Fortunately, most of the City Council members have expressed their enthusiasm and support for the project as described by Eldridge 2 years ago. There might be some serious confrontations if Mr. Eldridge’s concerns become reality. City Council members have already expressed their concerns over why it has taken two years for the City to approve initial plans submitted to the Mayor’s office for review and presentation before City Council. After several phone calls and impromptu meetings between Mr. Eldridge and the Mayor’s representative, the agreement to let the land donor’s representatives continue with the planning and actualization of the project was again made (somewhat reluctantly) by the Mayor’s representative.

Bill Maher had an epiphany on his HBO show “Real Time.” In a conversation with MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow, regarding Paul Ryan’s budget, Maher announced that rich people “actually do pay the freight in this country.” He continued, calling the taxes the rich pay: “outrageous” and “ridiculous.” He warned his liberal friends: “you could actually lose me.” • Facing the reality of a nuclear attack, on March 15 the Obama administration announced a reversal on missile defense. In 2009, Obama killed the Bush administration’s plans for 14 U.S. ground-based longrange missile interceptors — which are now, in opposition to the “Democratic Party’s long aversion to any kind of missile defense,” playing catch up. Missile defense advocates are now vindicated. • Government overreach received a setback on March 11, when “a judge threw out New York City’s ban on supersized sugary drinks.” Judge Milton Tingling said the soda ban “would not only violate the separation of powers doctrine, it would eviscerate it.” And, that has the “potential to be more troubling than sugar sweetened beverages.” The list could continue to include NBC’s ratings fall and Obama’s sudden shift in relations with Republicans, but you get the idea. “Marita,” you might say, “this is an interesting list, and I get your point, but you write on energy, and none of this has anything to do with energy.” Here are some similar setbacks to the left’s energy agenda: • Going back a couple of months, on Jan. 25, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia, in a unanimous decision, found that the EPA was projecting far too much production of cellulosic ethanol and mandated

Other states with high dependence on wind and solar resources face similar problems. • “In a preemptive move to protect against possible court challenges,” “an early step toward President Barack Obama’s secondterm goal of cutting emissions linked to climate change has hit a snag.” Reported on March 19: “The Obama administration is weighing changes to a proposed Environmental Protection Agency rule to limit emissions at new power plants.” The EPA’s rule would “essentially ban new coal-fired power plants” — which “may not withstand legal scrutiny.” • On March 20, another Solyndra-esque, government-funded solar panel manufacturer embarrassment came to light.

exploit the vulnerabilities; go on the offensive. The weapons we have are social media, email and our telephones. Here are some of the battles we could win if we join in the fight for American jobs, economic growth and affordable energy. • The Keystone pipeline is in the news again due to the recently released State Department report that concludes that it is environmentally safe. The pipeline, alone, has the unique ability to create jobs without taxpayer monies, spur economic growth in the states it will cross and other states that will participate in construction support, and lower the cost of gasoline through increased supply. We all need to add our “comments.” Tell the State Department to end the fouryear delay and approve the Keystone pipeline. • Anti-surface mining ads running in Tennessee on March 19 are just the latest in the war on coal. The war is raging against coal mining — which provides good paying jobs for thousands of Americans — and against coalfueled power plants with 300-plus scheduled for closure in the next few years and no possible replacement. We need an energy policy that works for each locale rather than one-size-fitsall requirements. For example, in New Mexico, we have coal-fueled power plants built right next to a coal mine, yet EPA regulations are shutting down five of the nine units. Likewise, West Virginia has an abundance of coal, and they, too, are closing plants. In the Pacific Northwest, hydropower is efficient, effective and economical, but environmental groups are forcing their removal. Call or email the White House and tell the Obama administration to make good on the “all of the above” promise and not limit or mandate specific electricity sources. • Due to the combination of new technology

Many markets across the globe need our natural gas — which could be liquefied and shipped worldwide and help the U.S. trade deficit. In a free market, companies should be allowed to sell their products to the highest bidder, but due to trade agreements and the slow approval process of applications to build new Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) terminals, this boost to the economy is being stifled. LNG exports are one of the few issues that truly have bipartisan support — yet, environmentalists oppose them and the Department of Energy has been dragging its feet on LNG export applications. Contact your senators and representative and tell them to oppose legislation that would limit LNG exports.

Egyptian authorities release Syria loses blogger accused of violence summit seat to opposition

Supporters surrounded prominent Egyptian blogger Alaa Abdel-Fattah Tuesday release from detention in Cairo, Egypt.

CAIRO (AP) — Egyptian authorities released a prominent Egyptian blogger Tuesday after he refused to cooperate with prosecutors over allegations of instigating violence against the country’s most powerful Islamist group in comments posted on social media. The blogger, Alaa Abdel-Fattah, was freed following his demand that an investigative judge take over his case, according to one of his lawyers, Malek Adly. His attorneys are now awaiting a decision on the request, which amounts to a snub to the prosecutor’s office by questioning its independence.

Abdel-Fattah handed himself in to authorities earlier Tuesday, a day after the country’s prosecutor general ordered his arrest along with four other activists also accused of inciting violence. The arrest warrants stoked concer ns among Egypt’s opposition that Islamist President Mohammed Morsi was using the prosecutor’s office to go after political opponents. The allegations against the activists are rooted in clashes between supporters and opponents of Morsi outside the headquarters of the Muslim Brotherhood in east Cairo last week that left 200 people

injured in the worst bout of political violence here in months. Activists say the arrest warrants, which closely followed a televised address by Morsi in which he warned that he would soon take exceptional measures in the face of violence, could herald a wave of arrests of opposition leaders. Abdel-Fattah and the other activists questioned the independence of the prosecutor general, saying he is beholden to Morsi. The president appointed the prosecutor late last year AP Photo despite an uproar from the judiciary. after his Dressed in a prison jumpsuit to show his readiness to face jail, Abdel-Fattah arrived at the Cairo of fice of Prosecutor General Talaat Abdullah on Tuesday surrounded by several dozen protesters chanting slogans denouncing Morsi and his group, the Muslim Brotherhood. From inside the prosecutor’s office, the blogger posted messages on Twitter saying that most of the accusations against him were based on comments sent to his account by others, rather than anything he posted himself. He also said on Twitter that he refused to respond to the authorities’ questions “because of partiality of the prosecutor general.”

Teen adopted by US parents returns to Russia, says they treated him badly

MOSCOW (AP) — A teenager adopted by an American couple has returned to Russia, claiming that his adoptive family treated him badly and that he lived on the streets of Philadelphia and stole just to survive, Russian state media reported. The allegations by Alexander Abnosov, who was adopted around five years ago and is now 18, will likely fuel outrage here over the fate of Russian children adopted by Americans. It’s an anger that the Kremlin has carefully stoked in recent months to justify its controversial ban on U.S. adoptions. Russia’s Channel 1 and Rossiya television — which are both state controlled — reported Tuesday that Abnosov returned from a Philadelphia suburb to the Volga river city of Cheboksary, where his 72-year old grandmother lives. Russian media identified the teen as Alexander Abnosov, but also show him displaying a U.S. passport that gives his name as Joshua Alexander Salotti. Abnosov, who spoke in a soft voice and appeared somewhat restrained, complained to Rossiya that his adoptive mother was “nagging at small things.” “She would make any

small problem big,” he said on Channel 1. He also told Channel 1 that he fled home because of the conflicts with his adoptive mother, staying on the streets for about three months and stealing. “I was stealing stuff and sold them to get some food,” he said with a shy smile. According to the daily Komsomolskaya Pravda, Abnosov says that his parents visited him while he stayed in a shelter in Philadelphia, but that they didn’t ask him to come home as he’d expected. Channel 1 said his adoptive father gave him $500 to buy a ticket to Russia, though it wasn’t clear when he arrived here. The newspaper said it reached Abnosov’s adoptive mother, who denied driving him away. She was quoted as saying he was asked to come home, but said he wanted to return to Russia where he has relatives to care for. The teen’s adoptive parents — identified in the media reports as Steve and Jackie Salotti — could not immediately be reached Tuesday. A woman who identified herself as a relative at the couple’s home in Collegeville, Pennsylvania,

said the parents weren’t there and did not want to discuss the case. The teen attended the Methacton School District in Pennsylvania from April 2004 through the fall of 2012, when he withdrew from Methacton High School, spokeswoman Angela Linch said Tuesday. Abnosov’s story was top news on Russian state television, which tried to cast it as an example of the alleged misfortunes that befall Russian children adopted by U.S. parents.

The Russian government in December banned all American adoptions of Russian children in retaliation for a new U.S. law targeting alleged Russian human-rights violators.

DAMASCUS, Syria (AP) — Syria’s opposition took over the country’s seat for the first time at an Arab summit Tuesday in a diplomatic triumph marred by severe divisions in the ranks of the Western-backed opposition alliance. The opposition’s ascension to representing the country at the summit in Qatar, a key backer of the those fighting to topple President Bashar Assad, demonstrated the extent of the regime’s isolation two years into a ferocious civil war that the U.N. says has killed an estimated 70,000 people. In Damascus, the government on Tuesday blasted the Arab League’s decision, portraying it as a sellingout of Arab identity to please Israel and the United States. “The shameful decisions it (Arab League) has taken against the Syrian people since the beginning of the crisis and until now have sustained our conviction that it has exchanged its Arab identity with a ZionistAmerican one,” said an editorial in the Al-Thawra newspaper, a government mouthpiece. The Qatari ruler, who chaired the summit, said the Syrian opposition deserves “this representation because of the popular legitimacy they have won at home and the broad support they won abroad and the historic role they have assumed in leading the revolution and preparing for building the new Syria.” In a further show of solidarity with anti-Assad forces, the Arab League endorsed the “right of each state” to provide the Syrian people and the Free Syrian Army with “all necessary means to ... defend themselves, including military means.” It was unclear whether the statement would open new weapons channels to fighters. But it would mark a symbolic slap of the U.S. and European allies that have resisted full-scale military aid to the rebels. Arab League Secretary-General Nabil Elaraby told reporters that the call for “rights” to aid rebels is not an end to diplomatic efforts to solve Syria’s crisis, but seeks to provide more “balance” with Assad’s superior firepower and aid he is getting from Russia and Iran. “The right to send more weapons to support the opposition is not an end to political efforts, but this might establish balance between both parties,” Elaraby said. Fighting, meanwhile, raged on in Syria. Rebels barraged Damascus with mortar shells that killed at least three people and wounded dozens in one of the most intensive attacks on the seat of President Bashar Assad’s power. The state news agency also reported that a car bomb exploded near the predominantly Kurdish neighborhood of Rukneddine, killing three people. The opposition delegation led by Mouaz al-Khatib, the former president of the main opposition alliance — the Western-backed Syrian National Coalition — took the seats assigned for Syria at the invitation of Qatar’s emir, Sheik Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani, while other delegates applauded. Al-Khatib used the forum to call for a greater U.S. role in aiding the rebels and said he had appealed to Secretary of State John Kerry to consider using NATO Patriot anti-missile batteries in Turkey to help defend northern Syria against strikes by Assad’s forces. Asked about al-Khatib’s request for Patriots, State Department spokesman Patrick Ventrell said the deployment of the anti-missile batteries to Turkey was a NATO decision with a clear mandate to protect Turkey. “We’ve heard some of this before in private,” Ventrell told reporters in Washington. “He’s now publicly saying this. But again, that’s what the NATO mission is.”

Adopt a ‘forever friend’ at the Roswell Humane Society today

The Roswell Humane Society is a nonprofit organization which was formed in 1970 for the purpose of preventing cruelty to animals, caring for homeless pets, and the extension of humane education. They are located at 703 East McGaffey Street. The Shelter contains 36 inside-outside runs, 20 inside cages, and 18 cat cages. At this present time, they are housing 100 dogs. It also has an office, quarantine room, and a treatment room. They could not have accomplished what they have done in the past 40 years, if it weren't for the generosity of local businesses, individuals, and organizations. Their support enables the Roswell Humane Society to have the potential to fulfill their mission to realize their vision of a future where no animal is abused or neglected, and adoptable pets aren't left to fend for The Roswell themselves. Humane Society receives no funding from any federal, state, county, or city entity. We DO NOT receive any of our funding from the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS). If you are looking to donate to your local Humane Society please send your donation directly to them. Along with the donations from our community, they also receive help from their thrift store. The thrift store

accepts and appreciates all salable items, ranging from linens to vehicles, or even homes. If you have any items stored in your home/garage, etc., please call 575-623-9210 and they will schedule a time to pick up your donations. Tax receipts are available. Their adoptions fees are $50.00 for dogs and cats and the adopter must prepay the spaying or neutering of the animal at a local vet. The adoption fee includes vaccinations/ wormings that they give them while they are in their care. The spaying or neutering is completed before the pet is able to go home with you. The Roswell Humane Society does home-checks and requires an introduction with your pets and children before they are able to go home. They adopt about 500 animals a year from the Roswell Animal Services, in hopes of putting them up for adoption and save them from being euthanized. Up coming events for the Roswell Humane Society The Roswell Community Yard Sale: 50-100 Yard Sales in one location April 27th & September 28th at the Roswell Wool Bowl Soccer Complex call 575-622-8950 for more information.

They will work on the wording of the ordinance and then the City Council will vote on it again a few days later. If you would like your input heard, please attend this workshop.

A big plea to all pet owners: If you are in need of releasing animal(s) please do not drop them off in the thrift store's donation bin, or the Humane Society paper bin, or drop them over our 6 ft. fence. Please come in and speak with us, or you can take them to Roswell Animal Services as well. We do not judge you for the reason of release. Our concern, is for the animals and their wellbeing. Putting them in the bins is very harmful to the animals, as people donate items and drop them in the drop-box, they could get heavy items dropped on them and possibly injure or even kill them. Please remem-

ber: Pet’s' feelings and wellbeing comes first, we come second. The Roswell Humane Society kennel shelter hours are Tuesday through Saturday from 9:00 a.m. - 12:00 noon; and 1:00 - 4:30 p.m. You may contact their office by calling 575622-8950, or visiting them at .

Gerard Butler shines in ‘Olympus Has Fallen’

Foster’s rating 4 out of 5 UFOs


Disgraced former Presidential guard Mike Banning (Gerard Butler) finds himself trapped inside the White House in the wake of a terrorist attack; using his inside knowledge, Banning works with national security to rescue the President

One of the reasons the action works so well is the way Fuqua decides to shoot it. For some reason, action films have gone toward a “shaky” camera when the action heats up. Fuqua goes with a more steady camera and the action benefits from that decision, because it is easy to follow. Whether he is delivering a one-liner or dispatching a bad guy (or a handful of them), Butler is the other reason this film is a success. This is the type of role Butler needs to stick to, because he is superb in it. He has almost a perfect combination of charisma and machismo. I just hope he doesn’t ruin this momentum

(Aaron Eckhart) from his kidnappers.

What it does right

Aside from the first act and some horrific “strategy” from the United States armed forces/CIA, the action picks up and luckily, that is where this film excels.

Roswell Daily Record

with another film like “Bounty Hunter.”

What it does wrong

The first act and the beginning of the takeover are lackluster at best. The special effects and CGI at the start of the hostile takeover are laughable and seem to be plucked from the early 2000s. Even more laughable were the tactics and logic used by the American forces protecting the White House. The film makes it seem like cover is dangerous and the best option is to go in waves out into the open, despite being outgunned. Also, can film studios stop putting out movie trailers

and teasers that ruin an important part of the film? In the first 10 minutes of the film, a tragedy happens that shapes the rest of the film, but it wasn’t a surprise because of the trailers and TV spots. That sequence would have been far more impactful if it weren’t already spoiled.


“Olympus Has Fallen” is able to recover from a sluggish start to deliver an intense, action-packed final two acts. Butler is in his element as the action hero and the action sequences are tight and clever. If action is what you seek, catch this film.

NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — Singer Dionne Warwick claims in a recent bankruptcy filing that she owes nearly $10 million in back taxes and her monthly expenses exceed $20,000. The South Orange resident and singer of classics such as “Walk On By,” ‘’I Say a Little Prayer” and “Do You Know the Way to San Jose” filed a Chapter 7 petition in U.S. bankruptcy court in New Jersey last Thursday. In the filing, the 72-yearold Warwick listed liabilities that include nearly $7 million owed to the Internal

Revenue Service for the years 1991 to 1999 and more than $3 million in business taxes owed to the state of California. Warwick, a cousin of the late Whitney Houston, also listed $20,950 in monthly income from royalties, retirement income and a contract with Culver City, Calif.-based Star Girl Productions. Her monthly expenses total $20,940 and include $5,000 for housekeeping/housesitting. Warwick’s publicist said that the singer was victimized by bad financial management in the 1990s and

that she has paid back the actual amount of the taxes, but penalties and interest have accumulated over the years.

The mark of an experienced team is usually how it answers adversity. Inexperienced teams tend to limp home after a lopsided loss, whereas experienced teams can usually rebound and play well. The Roswell softball team is inexperienced, but the Coyotes played like a battle-tested group in Game 2 of Tuesday’s doubleheader with 5A Hobbs. After falling 12-2 in six innings in the first game, Roswell rebounded with a solid performance in a 4-2 loss to the Eagles. That fight is what let coach Art Sandoval leave the team’s facility with at least half a smile. “I’m glad you noticed that and I hope everyone here noticed that,” Sandoval said about his team’s response after the Game 1 loss. “With this team here, we have two seniors and everybody else is young puppies. “When we got back here to the (right-field) line, I explained to (the girls), ‘You can either feel sorry for your-

DEXTER — Dexter fell to 3-2 with a pair of losses to Lovington on Tuesday. In Game 1, Dexter fell 11-2 and, in the nightcap, the Wildcats won 11-0 in five innings. In the first game, the Wildcats broke open a 4-2 game with five runs in the fourth and two more in the fifth. Dexter’s two runs came on a two-run triple from Munoz, Edgar which made it 4-2. Fabian Moreno struck out four in four innings for the Demons. In the nightcap, Lovington scored one in the first, three in the second, one in the third and five in the fifth to pick up the five-inning victory. Wildcat pitcher Louis Carrillo allowed just one Dexter hit, a single by Jose Ruiz. Dexter’s Jessie Acosta pitched two

The NMMI baseball team improved to 6-1 with a 5-2 win over Ruidoso on Tuesday. Tied at 1 after two innings, the Warriors took a 2-1 lead with a two-run double from Parker Johnson. The lead would be short-lived, though. With one out, Caleb T aylor drew a walk and advanced to third on a Daniel Zaragosa double. Following a groundout, Trevor Fowler gave the Colts the lead for good with a two-run single to right that made it 3-2. NMMI coach Charlie Ward said that he was impressed with how his team rebounded from each of Ruidoso’s runs. “You are correct there (we rebounded well),” he said. “Those two runs they got were unearned. I think they threw their best pitcher at us, but Caleb Saiz pitched well. When we were down (in the third), Trevor Fowler had a clutch hit to take the lead.” Ruidoso had runners in scoring

position in both the fourth and fifth innings, but failed to capitalize and, in the bottom of the fifth, NMMI built on its lead. Trujillo reached base to start the Colt fifth and, after a Fowler strikeout, Scott Schwab got hit by a pitch. A walk to Blade Allen loaded the bases and T rujillo scored on a fielder’s choice to make it 4-2. The Colts’ final run came via a wild pitch. Ward was pleased with the win but said his team has room to improve. “We are still making mistakes that I am not happy with,” he said. Caleb Saiz picked up the win for the Colts, allowing five hits and one ear ned run in five innings. Thomas Haley pitched the final two innings to pick up the save for NMMI. Saiz, Taylor, Zaragosa, Fowler and Allen each had a hit for NMMI. Jesse Tercero was charged with the loss for the Warriors.

WACO, Texas (AP) — Brittney Griner provided a most appropriate good-bye in her final home game for Baylor — with a trio of dunks and another double-double. Griner had 33 points and a career-high 22 rebounds to go with her three highlight dunks, including a the one-hand slam in the first half and two more in a 79-second span right before coming out of the game for good, as the defending national champion Lady Bears rolled past Florida State 85-47 Tuesday night in the second round of the NCAA tournament. With former President George W. Bush part of the crowd packed into the Ferrell Center for the final home game of Griner’s impressive career, the 6-foot-8 two-time All-American delivered. The Lady Bears (34-1) are in the NCAA round of 16 for the fourth year in a row. They play Louisville (26-8) on Sunday in Oklahoma City. Brooklyn Pope had 12 points for Baylor, which has won a nation’s-best 57 games in a row at home. Odyssey Sims had 11 points and Kimetria Hayden 10. Leonor Rodriguez had 11 points and was the only player in double figures for Florida State (23-10), which at the end of the regular season was the only of the 343 Division I teams with five players averaging in double figures. The first one-handed slam for Griner came late in the first half of a game that got lopsided in a hurry. The Lady Bears scored the game’s first 11 points, even without a field goal from Griner in that opening 3 1⁄2-minute onslaught. Griner’s opening slam came on a break after a Florida State basket. Freshman guard Niya Johnson passed ahead to Griner, who took one step without a dribble before slamming it home

Verrazano, Shanghai Bobby remain atop AP top 10

Points, points and more points. The road to the Kentucky Derby intensifies this weekend with qualifying points doubling for the remaining prep races in the final weeks before the Run for the Roses. And with some of the top-rated 3-year-olds set to run Saturday in the Florida and Louisiana derbies, the AP’s Run to the Roses’ Top 10 list of contenders could undergo a major shakeup next week. For now, the latest rankings remain the same as last week, with trainer Todd Pletcher’s Verrazano and Shanghai Bobby 1-2, followed by Itsmyluckyday, Orb and Vyjack. At Gulfstream Park on Saturday, Shanghai Bobby will try to avenge his only defeat — in the Holy Bull — when he takes on Itsmyluckyday in the Florida Derby. Orb, winner of the Fountain of Youth, also is

in the field. At the Fair Grounds, Pletcher’s unbeaten Revolutionary and Palace Malice headline the field in the Louisiana Derby, which also includes trainer D. Wayne Lukas’ T itletown Five, co-owned by football great Paul Hornung. The winner of each race earns 100 Derby qualifying points — up from 50 in the most recent series of prep races. Second place is worth 40 points, third 20 and fourth 10. The top 20 horses based on points qualify for the Derby on May 4. Currently, Rebel winner Will Take Charge tops the list with 60 points; Itsmyluckyday is 20th with 10 points. The other Derby prep Saturday is the UAE Derby in Dubai, where trainer Doug O’Neill sends out He’s Had Enough. Last year, O’Neill’s I’ll Have Another won the Kentucky Derby and Preakness.

In preps over the weekend, a pair of 3-year-olds likely earned Derby shots. Black Onyx held off Uncaptured and won the Spiral Stakes at Tur fway Park, and trainer Bob Baffert’s Govenor Charlie broke a track record and easily won the Sunland Derby. Each winner earned 50 points, but neither worked his way into the AP’s Top 10. Verrazano has a chance to secure his No. 1 ranking on April 6, when he is set to run in the Wood Memorial. Here’s our Top 10: 1. Verrazano (Todd Pletcher, John Velazquez): Worked 4 furlongs in 49.79 Saturday at Palm Meadows. ... Pletcher called unbeaten colt’s gallop out after work “pretty awesome.” Next start: Wood Memorial, Aqueduct, April 6. ... Final Derby future wager odds: 7-1. 2. Shanghai Bobby (Pletcher, Rosie Napravnik):

Trial date set for Cowboys G Josh Brent

DALLAS (AP) — Dallas Cowboys guard Josh Brent faces a Sept. 23 trial on an intoxication manslaughter charge in a car wreck that killed a teammate. Prosecutors in Dallas on Monday confirmed the trial date over the Dec. 8 crash in Irving that killed practice squad player Jerry Brown Jr. Police have said Brent had a blood-alcohol level twice the legal limit for driving. Brown was a passenger. Brent remains free on $100,000 bond and must wear an electronic ankle bracelet. If convicted he faces up to 20 years in prison. Defense attorney George Milner says a plea bargain remains a possibility. Brent’s football career is on hold while his case is in the courts. The Cowboys at the end of last season put Brent on the reserve non-football injury list.

Dumervil joins Ravens, says it was time for change

OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) — Elvis Dumervil has nothing bad to say about his time in Denver. He even considered staying with the Broncos after a fax snafu made him a free agent. When it came time to choose his future in the NFL, however, the three-time Pro Bowl defensive end decided it was best to play for a winner in a different city. Dumervil passed his physical and signed a five-year contract with the Super Bowl champion Baltimore Ravens on Tuesday. Wearing a checkered shirt and a broad grin, the 6-foot, 260-pounder fondly looked back on his time in Denver and eagerly spoke about the next, maybe final, stage of his NFL career. “Sometimes you have to make a decision. You pray about it,” Dumervil said. “At the end of the day there was no ill will or hard feelings. I just felt it was a time to change scenery.” The 29-year-old Dumervil became a free agent after his representative, whom was subsequently fired, was late in delivering the paperwork accepting a reduction in salary. So the Broncos had to release him, and after weighing offers from Denver and Baltimore, Dumervil picked the Ravens. “It was an unfortunate situation,” Dumervil acknowledged. “Obviously leaving a really good organization like the Denver Broncos, they’re proven winners. I have nothing but good things to say about the organization. But when an opportunity came that I could come to another winner and a first-class organization, it was just leaving one great one to another great one. So I took it.” The Ravens wasted almost no time pursuing the hard-charging pass rusher, especially after an offseason in which they lost free agents Ed Reed, Paul Kruger, Dannell Ellerbe and Cary Williams, cut safety Bernard Pollard and traded wide receiver Anquan Boldin. So general manager Ozzie Newsome worked out a salary-cap friendly deal with

around $35 million. After receiving a bit of encouragement via text message from Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs, Dumervil accepted. “I’ve known Terrell Suggs for a long time. He’s a great player, man,” Dumervil said. “He plays the run and rushes the passer. A great personality. I’m excited so we can merge, and obviously (linebacker Courtney) Upshaw as well, to try and get after quarterbacks.” Coach John Harbaugh could barely contain his excitement. “We just feel like Elvis Dumervil is our kind of guy,” he said. “We like to say things like, ‘He’s a Raven.’ That’s how he’s always played. We loved him coming out of Louisville. In some ways, I don’t want to say we feared him, but we certainly respected him as a football player, trying to game plan all around him.” Dumervil played in all 16 games with the Broncos last season, serving as team captain and registering 11 sacks for the topseeded team in the AFC. Over seven seasons he has 63 1⁄2 sacks, an interception and 17 forced fumbles. His last game with Denver turned out to be a bitter overtime loss to the Ravens in the playoffs. “I was in a hole for about a week,” Dumervil said.

NCAA capsules: Stanford routs Michigan 73-40 Roswell Daily Record

STANFORD, Calif. (AP) — For months, coach Tara VanDerveer has been challenging Joslyn Tinkle and Stanford’s supporting cast to take the pressure off Chiney Ogwumike. Tinkle and Co. did just that to send the top-seeded Cardinal to the Spokane Regional semifinals. T inkle made a career high five 3-pointers on the way to 21 points in her final home game at Maples Pavilion, and Stanford used a spectacular perimeter shooting performance to rout No. 8 seed Michigan 73-40 on Tuesday night. Ogwumike had 12 points and 15 rebounds on a night when the Cardinal’s shooters did their part just as VanDerveer has been hoping they would. Sara James shut down Michigan star Kate Thompson and scored nine points, and Stanford (33-2) won its 19th straight game to set up a matchup with fourthseeded Georgia on Saturday and move a step closer to the program’s goal of a sixth straight Final Four. Jenny R yan scored 11


points in her final college game to lead Michigan (2211), which matched its second-lowest scoring output all season . Tinkle, Stanford’s lone senior, shot 7 for 10 and made all of her 3-point attempts as the Cardinal hit a season-best 12 3s. She also had six rebounds, three assists and two blocks. Tinkle’s father, Wayne, the Montana men’s coach, cheered her in person while former Stanford star Candice Wiggins offered a “Joslyn Tinkle!” shout out via Twitter. Spokane is a comfortable Northwest second home for Stanford considering the Cardinal played there in the 2008 NCAA regional and again in 2011 — and now this season, too. Ogwumike will lead them back. The Pac-12 Player of the Year scored 29 points in a hard-fought 72-56 firstround win against No. 16 seed Tulsa on Sunday, when Stanford used a 48point and 65.5-percent shooting second half to advance.

seasons. Bethany Doolittle had 16 for Iowa (2113), which went 0 for 11 from 3-point range and had 21 turnovers. The favored Irish never let the host Hawkeyes take the lead. Though Iowa managed to threaten Notre Dame’s edge at various points in the first half, the Irish pulled away early in the second half and maintained a comfortable lead throughout. Jewell Loyd had 14 points and Natalie Achonwa added 11 with 14 rebounds for Notre Dame, who outrebounded the Hawkeyes 45-34. Iowa fared quite well against ranked opponents this season despite an 8-8 mark in the Big Ten. The Hawkeyes had beaten seven of the 10 opponents who were ranked when they faced them. But there’s a big difference between mere ranked teams and Notre Dame, one of a handful of serious national title

While Ogwumike set the tone on the boards Tuesday, she watched the shooters get on an early roll that lasted all 40 minutes. Stanford made seven of its first 11 3-pointers and finished 12 for 25 while holding one of the nation’s best long-range shooters — Thompson — in check on the other end. The Cardinal shot 53.8 percent overall to 29.2 percent by the Wolverines, and Stanford held a 35-22 rebounding advantage. Bonnie Samuelson came off the bench to hit back-toback 3s late in the first half, and Tinkle’s 3-pointer at the 14:09 mark of the second half put Stanford up by 30. Even when the Wolverines had high-percentage scoring chances, they struggled. During one sequence early in the second half, Sam Arnold missed a layup, grabbed her own rebound and missed again. Cold-shooting Michigan, which beat ninth-seeded Villanova 60-52 in the first round, couldn’t overcome Thompson being thoroughly shut down.

contenders. The Hawkeyes immediately discovered the difference. The Irish hit five of their first seven shots and jumped ahead 15-6. By then, Iowa’s Samantha Logic — who led the Hawkeyes with 23 points in their opening-round rout of Miami — had picked up two fouls. Logic followed up a strong first-round game with nine points and 11 turnovers. Still, Iowa got within 24-18 and ignited the home crowd for the first time. It didn’t last, as Diggins hit a contested mid-range jumper and McBride pulled up for a long 3 and a 31-18 edge. McBride had two more momentumbusting 3s from nearly the same spot to put Notre Dame up 46-34 at halftime. McBride, fresh off her first doubledouble of the season, hit eight baskets in the first half and four 3s in five tries. She matched her career high of 26 points early in the second half, and the Irish had their first 20-point lead a few minutes later.

The 6-foot-4 wing player, with her 14.5-point average and 39.3-percent shooting from 3-point range, missed her first 10 shots, making five free throws before hitting her lone basket with 3:41 to play. She was 1 for 11 overall and missed all six of her 3-point tries. First-year Michigan coach Kim Barnes Arico was sent home in the second round by Stanford for the second time in three years. Her St. John’s team lost 75-49 on the Cardinal’s home floor in 2011.

Louisville 76, Purdue 63 LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Sara Hammond had 21 points and 10 rebounds to help Louisville beat Purdue and advance to the round of 16 again. The fifth-seeded Cardinals (26-8) are in the regional semifinals for the second time in three years and fourth time in six

with 4 minutes left in the first half for a 43-18 lead — sending the partisan crowd of 9,652 into a frenzy as she ran down the court with her mouth open and clearly enjoying the moment. But she wasn’t finished. Bush had already left his front-row seats behind the Baylor bench when Griner had the last two dunks. She dunked again on another pass from Johnson with 7:46 left in the game, then had an assist on the next possession before her last dunk with 6:27 left — when she grabbed the rebound of a missed 3pointer, took a step around a defender and slammed it home. During a timeout less than a half-minute later, Griner — the first woman ever with three dunks in

Della Donne, Hens beat UNC 78-69

NEWARK, Del. (AP) — Delaware had just bounced North Carolina from the NCAA tournament in front of a boisterous sellout crowd that included Vice President Joe Biden, and it was now time for Elena Della Donne and her teammates to show their appreciation. They gathered in the center of the court and waved to the standing throng, many of whom were chanting, “Let’s Go Hens!” In another section of the small arena, North Carolina coach Sylvia Hatchell seethed. Delle Donne scored 33 points in her final home game, and Delaware rallied past the foul-plagued Tar Heels 78-69 on Tuesday night to advance to the round of 16 for the first

time in school history. After the final buzzer, Delle Donne had mixed emotions as she waved to the 4,653 cheering fans. “It was a little sad, it was emotional, saying goodbye,” she said. “But to leave this way is absolutely incredible. I even said to the girls before the game, ‘We deserve to win our last game on this court.’ That’s how everybody played.” The sixth-seeded Blue Hens (32-3) trailed 50-42 with 15:31 left before coming back to extend their school-record winning streak to 27 games and eliminate No. 3 seed North Carolina (29-7). Delaware will next travel to Connecticut to face second-seeded Kentucky. Waltiea Rolle scored 23 points for the Tar Heels,

self or you can get better right now and answer back.’ ... I’m really pleased with the comeback and the effort in the second half.” Sandoval said that his main concern is getting better and that he felt like his team did that in Game 2. “With what we have right now as far as young pups, they answered back and that’s all we can ask for right now,” he said. “In my opinion, I don’t care if we’re ranked or in the top 10 or what, our goal is to get better every stinking pitch of every stinking game. “That second game, we got better.” Hobbs scored once in the top of the first on a single by K’Lee Kent, but Roswell took control in its half of the inning. Tiffanie Bolanos, who went 2 for 4, led off the inning with a double to right center and scored two batters

but the 6-foot-6 senior was in foul trouble for much of the second half and finally picked up her fifth with 4:08 left. North Carolina point guard Tierra Ruffin-Pratt, who scored a career -high 30 points against Albany in the tour nament opener, played the final 11:55 with four fouls and finished with four points on 1-for -13 shooting. The Tar Heels were called for 24 fouls compared to 13 for the Blue Hens, and a discrepancy did not escape Hatchell’s notice. “I wish Delaware good luck when they get on a neutral court,” she said. When asked to comment on having her two stars in foul trouble and the 24 whistles against the Tar Heels, Hatchell said, “That

Roswell maintained that 2-1 lead through the next three innings before Hobbs tied it at 2 in the fifth. Alejandra Espinoza roped an RBI triple down the right-field line, scoring Bri McGill. The Eagles took the lead in the sixth on a passed ball and then padded that lead to 4-2 on a wild pitch in the seventh. Sandoval was especially frustrated with the mental lapses. “Those mental errors ... yes, they are mental, but I expect a senior to come through there,” he said, referring to Bolanos. “She’s been catching for me for five years. Those have to be caught. I’m not trying to criticize her, but those plays have to be made as a senior.” Roswell had a golden opportunity in the sixth to tie or take the lead, but couldn’t capitalize. With one out and runners on first and second, Sandoval put on the

hasn’t been a problem all year until now. With Pratt and Waltiea both out, that was the difference in the game. But I told the girls in the locker room, ‘This is a great lesson. Life isn’t always fair.”’ Delle Donne missed 18 of 28 field goal tries, but the 6-5 senior went 11 for 13 at the line and now has 3,006 points during a sensational career in her home state. “I don’t think I’ve wanted anything more than this win, and that’s saying a lot,” she said. Trumae Lucas scored 20 for the Blue Hens and Danielle Parker contributed 14 points and 13 rebounds. “This is without question the greatest victory in Delaware sports history,” Martin declared.

steal sign with Cain at second and Priscilla Lucero at the plate. Cain was easily thrown out at third and Lucero grounded out to the pitcher two pitches later to end the inning. Sandoval said it was a straight steal sign and that he was taking a chance that just didn’t pay off. “I’m going to take (the blame for that),” he said. “We had the runners up and what we were trying to do was get a fake bunt and run. It didn’t work out. “I had a straight steal on and I was thinking (Cain) was going to beat it out. I took a (chance) and it’s my fault. ... I had a gut feeling that we were going to get there and get in. If we get there, we have second and third, we get a base hit and the Coyotes win in my opinion.” Mykaya Olivas took the loss for Roswell, allowing four runs on eight hits and striking out three. Monica Bencomo and Vanessa Garcia were each 1 for 3, Chavez was 1 for 4 with an RBI and Cain was 0 for 1 with an RBI.

years. The fourth-seeded Boilermakers (25-9) had a fivegame winning streak snapped and have lost in the second round three straight years. With men’s coach Rick Pitino watching from the stands, Antonita Slaughter scored 14 of her 16 points in the first half for Louisville. Shoni Schimmel had 14. Sam Ostarello led Purdue with 16 points and 12 rebounds. KK Houser had 10. Louisville never trailed in beating Purdue for the first time in six games. These teams hadn’t met since 1993, and the Cardinals’ program has grown to a new level in the past two decades.

LSU 71, Penn St. 66 BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — Adrienne Webb scored a career -high 29 points, the same game — came out of her final home game for the Lady Bears. Only six other women have ever dunked in a college game. That group had 15 dunks combined, three less than Griner’s career total. The most dunks by anyone else was the seven by Tennessee’s Candace Parker. Griner has 11 just this season. While the crowd gave her a loud and lengthy ovation, Griner shared an extended embrace with coach Kim Mulkey — and picked the coach up off the ground. After putting Mulkey down and going down to the end of the bench, Griner thrust both ar ms into the air to acknowledge the cheers. When the game was over, Griner again held both arms in the air. She took a couple of laps around the arena floor, with Baylor cheerleaders following her, then jumped onto the back of

Roswell 7, Lovington 2 LOVINGTON — Roswell improved to 8-1 with a road win over Lovington on Tuesday. Singles winners for the Coyotes were Alicia Romero (second; 6-1, 26, 10-8), Mariana Flores (third; 6-3, 6-4), Latricia Velasquez (fourth; 6-2, 62), Ashley Cannon (fifth; 6-1, 6-1) and Karly Kunko (sixth; 6-3, 4-6,

including two crucial free throws with 22 seconds left, and No. 6 seed LSU beat third-seeded Penn State. Bianca Lutley overcame foul trouble and capped an 18-point night with a tough floater in traffic in the final minute to give LSU (22-11) the lead and another key free throw to make it a four -point game with 8.3 seconds to go. Webb, a senior, was 10 of 16 in what would have been her last game had LSU lost. Instead, she carried her team to the round of 16 on a night when the Lady Tigers had only seven available players. LSU next plays No. 2 seed California on Saturday in Spokane, Wash. Nikki Greene scored 16 points for Penn State (266), whose loss meant all four No. 3 seeds were out of the tournament.

Since the senior trio of Griner, Hayden and Jordan Madden got to Waco as freshmen together, Baylor is 71-2 at home. Griner has played in only one loss since she didn’t participate in the last home loss, against Texas in the 2009-10 regular season finale. The Lady Bears have won every home game the past three seasons — since Sims arrived and when transfers Destiny Williams and Pope, the other seniors, started playing. Baylor, the No. 1 overall seed, opened the NCAA tournament with an 8240 victory Sunday night over SWAC tournament champion Prairie View, when Griner had another dunk. 10-6). Doubles wins came from Velasquez and Cannon (second; 6-2, 4-6, 10-3) and Flores and Kunko (third; 6-4, 6-2).

Taxpayers shell out nearly $3.7M for ex-presidents WASHINGTON (AP) — Former President Bill Clinton’s 8,300-square-foot Harlem of fice near the Apollo Theater costs taxpayers nearly $450,000. George W. Bush spends $85,000 on telephone fees, and another $60,000 on travel. Jimmy Carter sends $15,000 worth of postage — all on the government’s dime. The most exclusive club in the world has a similarly exclusive price tag — nearly $3.7 million, according to a new report from the nonpartisan Congressional Research Service. That’s how much the federal government spent last year on the four living ex-presidents and one presidential widow. Topping the list in 2012 was George W. Bush, who got just over $1.3 million last year. Under the Former Presidents Act, previous inhabitants of the Oval Office are given an annual pension equivalent to a Cabinet sec-

retary’s salary — about $200,000 last year, plus $96,000 a year for a small office staff. Taxpayers also pick up the tab for other items like staff benefits, travel, of fice space and postage. The $3.7 million taxpayers shelled out in 2012 is about $200,000 less than in 2011, and the sum in 2010 was even higher. It’s a drop in the bucket compared with the trillions the federal government spends each year. Still, with ex-presidents able to command eye-popping sums for books, speaking engagements and the like in their post-White House years, the report raises questions about whether the U.S. should provide such generous subsidies at a time when spending cuts and the deficit are forcing lawmakers and federal agencies to seek ways to cut back. Departing presidents also get extra help in the first years after they leave office,

one reason that Bush’s costs were higher than other living ex-presidents. The most recent ex-president to leave the White House, Bush was granted almost $400,000 for 8,000 square feet of office space in Dallas, plus $85,000 in telephone costs. Another $60,000 went to travel costs. Clinton came in second at just under $1 million last year, followed by President George H.W. Bush at nearly $850,000. Clinton spent the most government money on of fice space: $442,000 for his Harlem digs. Costs for Carter, the only other living former president, came in at about $500,000. Widows of former presidents are entitled to a pension of $20,000, but Nancy Reagan, the wife of former President Ronald Reagan, waived her pension last year. The former first lady did accept $14,000 in postage.

The cost totals for expresidents don’t include what the Secret Service spends protecting them, their spouses and children. Those costs are part of a separate budget that isn’t made public.

Not everyone agrees, though, with the scientists’ conclusion. Oklahoma’s state seismologists say the quake was natural. The Nov. 6 earthquake near Prague, Okla., injured two people, damaged 14 houses and was felt for hundreds of miles in 14 states, according to the U.S. Geological Survey. It was the largest quake in the central part of the country in decades and largest in Oklahoma records, experts said. The study by geophysicists at the University of Oklahoma, Columbia University and the USGS says that a day earlier there was a slightly smaller quake in an old oil well used to get rid of wastewater, right along a fault line. That smaller quake triggered the bigger one, and a third smaller aftershock. The location of the tremors right at the spot where wastewater was

stored, combined with an increased well pressure, makes a strong case that the injections resulted in the larger quake, they said. This area of Oklahoma had been the site of oil drilling going back to the 1950s, and wastewater has been pumped into disposal wells there since 1993, the study authors said. Water and other fluids used for drilling are often pumped more than a mile below ground. The report said there was a noticeable jump in the well pressure in 2006. USGS geophysicist Elizabeth Cochrane described the pressure increase from injections as similar to blowing more air in a balloon, weakening the skin of the balloon “We have a lot of evidence that certainly leads us to believe” the quake was caused by the injections, said Cochrane, a study co-author.

Funding for ex-presidents dates back to 1958, when Congress created the For mer Presidents Act largely in response to President Harry Truman’s postWhite House financial woes, the Congressional Research Service said. The goal was to maintain the dignity of the presidency and help with ongoing costs associated with being a former president, such as responding to correspondence and scheduling requests.

These days, a for mer president’s income from speaking and writing can be substantial, and expresidents also have robust presidential centers and foundations that accept donations and facilitate many of their post-presi-

dential activities. Noting that none of the living ex-presidents are poor, Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, introduced a bill last year that would limit costs to a $200,000 pension, plus another $200,000 that ex-presi-

dents could use at their discretion. And for every dollar that an ex-president ear ns in excess of $400,000, his annual would be allowance reduced by the same amount. The bill died in committee.

Report: Big Oklahoma quake in 2011 likely man-made

WASHINGTON (AP) — An unusual and widely felt 5.6-magnitude quake in Oklahoma in 2011 was probably caused when oil drilling waste was pushed deep underground, a team of university and federal scientists concluded. That would make it the

most powerful quake to be blamed on deep injections of wastewater, according to a study published Tuesday by the jour nal Geology. The waste was from traditional drilling, not from the hydraulic fracturing technique, or fracking.

EPA: More than half of streams in ‘poor’ shape

WASHINGTON (AP) — More than half of the country’s rivers and streams are in poor biological health, unable to support healthy populations of aquatic insects and other creatures, according to a new nationwide survey released Tuesday. The Environmental Protection Agency sampled nearly 2,000 locations in 2008 and 2009 — from rivers as large as the Mississippi River to streams small enough for wading. The study found more than 55 percent of them in poor condition, 23 percent in fair shape, and 21 percent in good biological health. The most widespread problem was high levels of nutrient pollution, caused by phosphorus and nitrogen washing into rivers and streams from farms, cities, and sewers. High levels of phosphorus — a common

She lived most of her life in the Binghamton, N.Y., area, where she helped in her father’s grocery shop prior to her marriage to Frank A. Janonis.

Land clearing and building along waterways increases erosion and flooding, and allows more pollutants to enter waters. “This new science shows that America’s streams and rivers are under significant pressure,” said Nancy Stoner, acting assistant administrator of EPA’s water office. “We must continue to invest in protecting and restoring our nation’s streams and rivers as they are vital sources of our drinking water, provide many recreational opportunities, and play a critical role in the economy.” Conditions are worse in the East, the report found.

sey coast are in poor shape. Streams and rivers are healthiest in Wester n mountain areas, where only 26 percent were classified as in poor condition.

The EPA also found some potential risks for human health. In 9 percent of rivers and streams, bacteria exceeded thresholds protective of human health. And mercury, which is toxic, was found in fish tissue along 13,000 miles of streams at levels exceeding health-based standards. Mercury, which is naturally occurring, also can enter the environment from coalburning power plants and from burning hazardous wastes. The Obama administration finalized regulations to control mercury pollution from coal-burning power plants for the first time in late 2011.

The evidence isn’t as complete as other smaller earthquakes that have been linked conclusively to injections of waste, such as those in Arkansas, Colorado and Nevada, said co-author Heather Savage of Columbia. But with the quake at the “right place” at the well, the increased pressure and the other smaller quakes across the region triggered by injections, “it becomes compelling,” she said. A National Academy of Sciences study last year documented 60 small injection induced quakes in the United States in the past 90 years, mostly in Califor nia, Texas, Colorado, Oklahoma and Ohio. In a statement, the Oklahoma Geological Survey said the interpretation that best fits the data is the quake “was the result of natural causes” but needs further study. The

state officials cited new 3D seismic data, a time lag between injection and the quakes, and the orientation of the faults to say it was natural not induced.

Just being in the right place isn’t proof enough, said Austin Holland, seismologist for the state agency. There are few places in Oklahoma where you can have an earthquake that’s not near an injection well, he said.

Three outside scientists contacted by The Associated Press said the researchers made a strong case for a likely man-made cause.

“I think they made the case that it is possible; it’s probably even more than possible,” said Steve Horton, director of the Center for Earthquake Research and Infor mation at the University of Memphis. “They have a very reasonable conclusion.”

If you hear weird stories or see strange things next Monday, be suspicious. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s April Foolsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Day! Lots of people get into the spirit of fun on April 1. Your family and friends might play silly tricks. Even serious groups such as NASA and the news media play tricks that day. The important thing to remember is that April Foolsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Day tricks should all be friendly. If someone could be embarrassed or hurt, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not funny. And itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not in the spirit of April Foolsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Day. The Mini Page talked with an expert on community rituals, or customs, to find out more about this holiday thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all about fun.

April Foolsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Day!

Who thought of this, anyway? April Fish Many cultures have a day for fun and jokes, and often those days come in the early spring. Experts believe April Foolsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Day may have started in France in the 1500s. At that time in France, many people celebrated the new year around April 1, at Easter time. In 1564, the king moved the new year to Jan. 1. A new calendar was developed in 1582. When the calendar changed, people got confused. There were no daily newspapers, Internet or TV back then. It took a while for news to get around. People who hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t heard the news showed up on April 1 for New Yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s celebrations. Those in the know called them fools and played tricks on them. For example, tricksters would send them to New Yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s parties that didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t exist.

The French call April Foolsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Day Le Poisson dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Avril (PWAW-sown dahVRIL), or April Fish. Experts are not sure why fish became part of April Foolsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Day. Some believe itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s because young, inexperienced fish are easily caught. On April 1, French kids stick pictures of fish on peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s backs. This is an antique French postcard for April Fish.

Centuries of Tricks Joking around

Playing on the Net

In the 1800s, students in many parts of the United States played April Foolsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; jokes on their teachers. Sometimes all the students would run into the woods before school started and stay out until lunchtime. In other places, all the students would rush into the school, locking the teacher out. The media of the times got into the act too. )N AYEAR after Thomas Edison invented the phonograph, a New York newspaper printed an Thomas Edison April Foolsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; story about him. They reported that %DISONHADINVENTEDAhFOODCREATORv that could turn dirt into cereal. Many newspapers reprinted the story, thinking it was true.

April Foolsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Day is a major holiday on the Internet. Google employees especially love that day, playing pranks year after year. On April 1, 2000, they announced a new search engine that could read your mind. They called their breakthrough MentalPlex Technology. Users were told to take off their hats and glasses and then look into the MentalPlex circle, think about what they were looking for, and then think about clicking. There was no need to type anything into a keyboard.

Google claimed it was also coming out with a new Google Docs Motion program, where people could create documents with their bodies. For example, you could create a chart by doing gymnastics.

my relationship with him. However, if I give in, I’ll end up feeling selfloathing and resentment. Either way, it will be damaging. We’re in our 40s. Please offer any advice you might have. WORRIED IN CALIFORNIA


DEAR WORRIED: You are indeed not alone in this dilemma. You should not have to do anything you are uncomfortable with. The next time your boyfriend raises the subject, turn the discussion to amorous activities you both enjoy. Then suggest that instead of this particular sex act, you engage in his “No. 2 favorite.” #####


DEAR ABBY: I hope you will print this because I’m sure many women share this dilemma. My boyfriend, whom I adore and who is one of the kindest men on Earth, wants me to perform a certain sex act on him. While I understand that many people — and I don’t judge them — enjoy it, I am not one of them. I would feel degraded if I even tried it. He says he won’t pressure me about it, yet he talks about it a lot. Just listening to him talk about it puts unwanted pressure on me. I have tried to be honest with him. I told him I don’t want to do this, but I’m afraid if I don’t, it will damage

DEAR ABBY: I’m a 51-year-old woman with a question. What do you recommend a person do or say when being lied to? I’m not talking about the little white lies we all tell to spare someone’s feelings, smooth things over, etc. I once had a 21-year-old man tell me that he was a veteran of a war that had been over for 10 years! I felt like an idiot pretending to


believe him and knew he’d be laughing at me later, but frankly, I felt scared to confront him. HEARD A WHOPPER

DEAR HEARD A WHOPPER: If you have reason to feel that the person talking to you is being untruthful, be polite and end the conversation. And if your intuition tells you the person is someone to be afraid of, put as much distance between you as possible and avoid that person in the future. ##### DEAR ABBY: I am a plus-sized woman. I am loud and boisterous, and I like to surround myself with similar women. However, there is a problem I am now facing. Many of my friends have made amazing transformations and gotten fit. I am fully supportive and impressed, but I see the price they are paying. They are no longer confident and vivacious. They have become timid, approval-seeking shells of their previous selves. Why do newly thin women forget how awesome their personalities


DEAR BIG BEAUTY: Not knowing your friends, I can’t answer for them. But it is possible that having become “transformed and fit,” they no longer feel they need their loud and boisterous personas to compete for attention. ##### DEAR ABBY: When I was growing up, my father would ask my mother what she wanted, and then he would buy the opposite. For example, if she wanted a brown sofa, he would buy a blue one. One day I realized that he acts the same way toward me. He will ask my opinion about the color of something — like an appliance — then buy the opposite color. Is there a name for this behavior? ANONYMOUS IN ATLANTA

DEAR ANONYMOUS: Yes, there is. It is called “passive aggression,” and it’s a way of demonstrating veiled hostility without being directly confrontational.

Unscramble these four Jumbles, one letter to each square, to form four ordinary words.

by David L. Hoyt and Jeff Knurek

Family Circus

Dear Heloise: I love POMEGRANATES, but I often have trouble removing the seeds without bursting them. Is there an easier way to remove them, and is it OK to eat the white part of the seed (the whole seed)? Angela G. in Ohio

Now arrange the circled letters to form the surprise answer, as suggested by the above cartoon.

(Answers tomorrow) ABATE FACADE TURNIP Jumbles: FLANK Answer: Leonard Nimoy’s career really took off as a result of him being — “ALIEN-ATED”

Today’s Crossword Puzzle

Pomegranates are so tasty and add color to many dishes. Arils (the red seeds) can be eaten, including the white part. Removing the seeds is easy, too. Cut off about an inch of the top of the fruit. Looking down, you’ll see sections to pull apart. Fill a bowl with water, place the sections in it and gently pull out the seeds, and they will sink to the bottom. Throw out the rest, and strain the seeds. Now you can just pop them in your mouth to enjoy, or store in a container in the refrigerator for up to two weeks. Heloise P.S.: Pomegranates (whole) will keep for about one month on the counter or two in the refrigerator. So, stock up when they are at a good price. The name “pomegranate” comes from Middle French, and literally means “seeded apple.” It also is referred to as a Chinese apple.



For Better or For Worse


SEND A GREAT HINT TO: Heloise P.O. Box 795000 San Antonio, TX 78279-5000 Fax: 210-HELOISE Email: Heloise(at) Dear Heloise: I usually buy fresh spinach to put in my omelets, but sometimes it goes bad before I can use it all. By chance, I took some fresh spinach, dropped it into a small, plastic bag and placed it into the freezer (rinsed and patted dry — Heloise). It kept longer, and when I pulled it out, I broke it into pieces by crunching the bag. Wish I knew this years ago! Karen B., via email Dear Heloise: Brown sugar and powdered sugar are sold in boxes or bags, which I find messy. I avoid the mess while employing the environmental principle of repurposing. I use an empty container of Parmesan cheese (washed) for powdered sugar. The container has openings on top, with small holes for sprinkling and a bigger one for spooning. For brown sugar, I clean a used, plastic coffee container. One designed to hold 11-12 ounces of coffee is the best size. Bill C., via email Dear Heloise: If you have trouble opening dishwasher-detergent boxes with the metal pour spout, just squeeze the sides of the box by the spout. It leaves just enough space to get your fingernail into and pull it down. Nancy P. in California Don’t use your nails as tools! I’ve broken a few nails this way.

The interior will have more of a luxury feeling to differentiate it from the sportier Regal. The Regal gets similar cosmetic changes on the outside. Inside, more supportive seats and a simpler dashboard and center console give it a sportier look. GM’s 2.4-liter four-cylinder “e-Assist” engine, with a small electric motor that helps boost gas mileage, becomes standard. A new, more powerful version of GM’s 2-Liter turbocharged engine, with 259 horsepower, is in the sportier models, the turbo and GS. GM says the Regal will be more responsive, refined and efficient than the previous model. The LaCrosse goes on sale late this summer and the Regal comes out in the fall. Prices and gas mileage weren’t released, but GM hinted at efficiency and price increases. The current Regal starts at $29,015, while the LaCrosse starts at $31,660. The LaCrosse, a new model in 2009, and the Regal, new in 2010, have helped Buick’s sales rise during the past three years, and reached 180,000 in 2012. Other catalysts were the new Verano, a compact based on the Chevrolet Cruze, and the Enclave, a big crossover SUV, that got a facelift last year. Also, Buick’s new Encore small SUV is just starting to hit showrooms. The new products have helped to change Buick’s demographics. In 2006, Buick buyers on average had celebrated 64 birthdays. Last year that fell to 57, according to the company, The average car buyer in the U.S. is 52, according to the auto pricing site.

But the trajectory inevitably is headed down. At the start of the 2011-12 season, “American Idol” was collecting about $500,000 for a 30-second commercial on its Wednesday episodes, said analyst Deana Myers of SNL Kagan. That put it in an exclusive top tier, along with NBC’s “Sunday Night Football.” By May 2012, when Phillip Phillips had been crowned the winner, the singing contest had posted its lowest-rated season since it debuted in summer 2002, and “Sunday Night Football” had snatched the No. 1 ratings spot away from singing contest for the first time since 2003. The result: The current 2012-13 season began with prices cut to $340,000 per spot for the higher-rated Wednesday performance night episode, Myers said. (That figure that is expected to rise as the show heads toward its finale and, presumably, bigger audiences.) It’s true that growing cable competition and the fragile economy have made the broadcast ad market vulnerable. But by comparison, ABC’s sitcom “Modern Family” saw its fortunes improve, with its rate of $250,000 per commercial for the 201112 season rising to $330,000 at this’s season start. Another test is coming in May. At the annual “upfronts” in New York, broadcast networks will gather billions of dollars in advertising commitments for the 2013-14 season based on their series’ past and predicted viewership.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — In the heyday of “American Idol,” the notion that it could fall ratings victim to a zombie slugfest or standard crime drama would have been laughable. That was then. With Fox’s singing contest shedding about 20 percent of its audience so far this season to hit new lows, it’s been leapfrogged repeatedly in total viewers by series including the CBS procedurals “Person of Interest” and “NCIS.” In a harsher blow to a blockbuster that once ruled the advertiser-adored young adult segment, “American Idol” has been overtaken this season by AMC’s “The Walking Dead,” despite the addition of glossy new “Idol” judges Mariah Carey, Nicki Minaj and Keith Urban. But in its 12th season, “American Idol” is managing to hit the right notes with sponsors if not always with fickle viewers: It has retained its status as TV’s advertising leader among series and the loyalty of its biggest backers, including Ford and Coca-Cola. “It’s still a top 10 show,” said Brad Adgate of media-buying fir m Horizon Media. “Compared to several years ago, it’s not the ratings force it once was. ... But even if it loses 20 percent” again, it’s still valuable to Fox. And there’s this confident prediction: When it comes to advertising dollars, the series “will have the top price for the 201213 season,” said analyst Jon Swallen of Kantar Media. Last season, “American Idol” grossed a leading $836 million in ad revenue.

NEW YORK (AP) — General Motors Co. will make another attempt to get Buick to appeal to younger buyers with freshened up versions of the Regal midsize sports sedan and the LaCrosse large luxury car. GM unveiled the pair Tuesday ahead of the New York auto show. Youth has been the theme of several of Buick marketing campaigns during the last three decades, with famous pitchmen from Tiger Woods to Shaquille O’Neal. Sales have even risen recently after a dramatic and lengthy decline. But even with that recent success, odds are against GM making Buick a go-to option for large numbers of drivers below the age of 40. Buick, once coveted for its understated elegance, used to be a dominant brand. In 1984, GM sold 942,000 Buicks in the U.S., according to Ward’s AutoInfoBank. But many Buick buyers died, and younger people opted for SUVs and cooler European cars. Sales tumbled, bottoming out at just over 102,000 in 2009. GM only kept the brand alive because it became a huge seller in China. The company doesn’t expect Buick sales to approach 900,000 per year again. But executives say they can still make a lot of money selling the higherpriced luxury vehicles with lower sales numbers. GM is giving the LaCrosse a more sculpted, modern look. It gets updated LED daytime running lamps and tail lights and a larger front grille. On the inside, it gets new, more supportive seats and a modernized center stack with fewer buttons than the current car.

lyst Matthew Teeple, 41, of San Clemente, Calif. Each was charged in federal court in Manhattan with conspiracy to commit securities fraud and three counts of securities fraud. If convicted, each could face up to 65 years in prison. U.S. Attor ney Preet Bharara said Riley and Teeple, who are friends, engaged in a “high-stakes game that has repeatedly proven to be unwinnable.” He added that the case shows that “the ranks of privileged professionals who behave as if they are above the law continue to swell.” George S. Canellos, act-

ing director of the Securities and Exchange Commission, which filed civil charges, said Riley “was entrusted with Foundry’s most valuable secrets, but betrayed his company and set off an explosive chain reaction of illegal tips from friend to friend for illicit profits.”

Prosecutors said Teeple worked for an investment advisory fir m hired by a family of hedge funds in San Francisco when Riley told him on July 16, 2008, about the pending acquisition of Foundry by Brocade. The deal was publicly announced five days later.
