SANTA FE (AP) — New Mexico can move ahead with establishing a staterun health insurance exchange under legislation signed into law Thursday by Gov. Susana Martinez. The new law takes effect immediately, and one of the next steps is the appointment of a 13-member gover ning board for the exchange. The exchange is to serve

NEW YORK (AP) — For the second time in less than a month, the stock market marched past another milepost on its long, turbulent jour ney back from the Great Recession, toppling another record left over from the days before gover nment bailouts and failing investment banks. The Standard & Poor’s 500 closed at a new high Thursday, three weeks after another popular market gauge, the Dow Jones industrial average, obliterated its own closing record.

Hagel: B-2s not intended to provoke North Korea WASHINGTON (AP) — America’s unprecedented decision to send nuclearcapable B-2 stealth bombers to drop dummy munitions during military drills with South Korea this week was part of normal exercises and not intended to provoke a reaction from North Korea, Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel said Thursday. Hagel acknowledged, however, that North Korea’s belligerent tones and actions in recent weeks have ratcheted up the danger in the region. Speaking to Pentagon reporters, both Hagel and Gen. Martin Dempsey, chair man of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said the B2 bombers were a message intended more for allies than Pyongyang. “The North Koreans have to understand that what they’re doing is very dangerous,” Hagel said. “I

don’t think we’re doing anything extraordinary or provocative or out of the ... orbit of what nations do to protect their own interests.” The U.S., he added, must make it clear to South Korea, Japan and other allies in the region that “these provocations by the North are taken by us very seriously and we’ll respond to that.” U.S. Forces Korea announced in a statement Thursday that two B-2 stealth bombers flew from an air base in Missouri and dropped dummy munitions on a South Korean island range before returning home. While B-2 bombers have been used in past military exercises, including one in 2000 that included flights over South Korea, this is the first time that dummy munitions were dropped, according to the Pentagon. The joint drills are likely

to heighten the already escalating tensions between the U.S. and North Korea that have played out in recent weeks, including Pyongyang’s threat to carry out nuclear strikes on Washington and Seoul. North Korea has ramped up its rhetoric in response to the recent U.S. military exercises and also the U.N. sanctions over North Korea’s nuclear test last month. Use of the stealthy B-2 bombers added something of an exclamation point to the training mission, which had already included older but also nuclearcapable B-52 bombers. “They’re telling the North Koreans, we can attack you in ways in which you can see us coming, and we can also attack you potentially in ways in which you cannot see us coming,” said retired Air Force Col.

Cedric Leighton, a North Korean intelligence expert who served on the Joint Staf f and the National Security Council. “So it’s a message to the North Koreans that they have to be very careful how they proceed next with their military efforts and their political efforts. “ Asked if the U.S. has seen North Korea take any actual threatening military steps in response to the bombers, Dempsey said the North has moved some artillery units across the demilitarized zone from Seoul and some maritime units along the coasts. But so far, he said, “We haven’t seen anything that would cause us to believe they are movements other than consistent with historic patter ns and training exercises.” The military drills are only the latest U.S. response to what officials

Cops bust Knight on 104 counts of kiddie porn Lopez

The Chaves County Sheriff’s Offices Internet Crimes Against Children Division arrested Donald G. Knight, 60, on 104 counts of sexual exploitation of children. The warrant was issued for his arrest on March 20. Sexual exploitation of a child is defined as images of sexually explicit behavior with a child, otherwise known as hard-core pornography. According to New Mexico statutes, the focus is on the har m to children that results from trespasses against their persons. Of the 104 counts, four qualified as third-degree felonies, 62 were fourthdegree felonies and 38 were second-degree felonies. A third-degree felony includes distribution of images which depict any child under the age of 18. A second-degree felony prohibits an individual from intentionally causing or permitting a child under 18 years of age to engage in any sexual act that may be used for the visual medium. A fourth-degree felony

consists of explicit images of a child under the age of 13. According to the criminal complaint, the ICAC taskforce removed a HP computer, a Wester n Digital External Drive and 12 CDs that contained porn from Knight’s residence. The videos lasted from a few seconds to more than an hour. The victims ranged in age from 4 years old to 15. Some were shown with hands tied or handcuffed. The images came from a number of different countries, including Russia, Brazil, Japan, Thailand and India. The court document reveals that at least 16 of the videos were of victims who have been previously identified by the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. Some of the videos were duplicates. The court record described the SO’s interview with Knight, who told the detectives that he had seen pornography involving chil-

He denied “downloading any of the child pornography on purpose to get gratification.” He also denied “producing any child porn.” He said he deleted any child porn that was downloaded to his computer, although he admitted “there may be files that had not been deleted yet.” Knight was transported to the Chaves County Detention Center, with $100,000 surety bond.

The purpose of the meeting, along with the sunny, war m conditions and sounds of birds in the air, left several people in attendance to remark it was “truly a good day for Roswell.” Councilor Elena Velasquez moved to change the name of Spring River Golf Course to “Nancy Lopez Golf Course.” Before the vote, the council took comments from the community, where many spoke of Lopez’s accomplishments and humble attitude toward them. “She is all that is right about Roswell,” said Diane Taylor, calling her a positive role model for all chil-

Councilman Barry Foster offered a friendly amendment to Velasquez’s motion to add “at Spring River” to “let people know it’s here in Roswell.” The amendment passed after the mayor broke a tie vote. Some councilors felt the name change would unite a divided community. Councilor Savino Sanchez said the city has many things that need changing and “if this is where it starts, then let’s do it.” After the vote, the Mayor spoke by phone to Lopez, who tear fully expressed gratitude. “Roswell’s where I grew up, it’s where a lot of my friends still are,” she said. “If my dad were alive, he’d be very excited about it.” Council members Art Sandoval and Jimmy Craig did not attend the meeting.

“As I said during my State of the State address, I didn’t support Obamacare, but it is the law of the land.

However, work on the exchange was put on hold during the recent legislative session and because of the threat of a possible lawsuit challenging whether the governor could unilaterally create the new insurance marketplace. Attorney General Gary King contended that the Legislature had to change state law for the alliance to be able carry out federally managed duties of an insurance exchange.

Martinez and legislators eventually reached an agreement on legislation to create the framework for an exchange. One initial dispute was over the board’s power, and whether it should be able to regulate what health insurance plans are offered to consumers. Federal law spells out minimum requirements for health coverage, and it will be up to the state insurance superintendent’s office to determine whether plans meet qualifying stan-

A note on public opinion versus personal ideals

“If there is anything that links the human to the divine, it is the courage to stand by a principle when everybody else rejects it.” — Abraham Lincoln History is full of war nings about what happens when people follow public opinion instead of standing by their principles. In its most extreme manifestation, public opinion might well become mob rule when vigilantes take the law into their own hands. Major media have whipped the crowd into its latest frenzy over same-sex marriage, or should I say “marriage equality,” the latest euphemism, likely intended to make the masses more accepting of what was once unacceptable. And the masses, which increasingly answer “none” when asked about any religious affiliation or moral code, appear ready for it. The U.S. Supreme Court, not the Supreme Judge, now rules


supreme. But there are consequences for living as one pleases. Look at the fallout that our culture continues to experience from the ‘60s generation and its throwing off of the ideals and structures of mainstream society. The “Age of Aquarius,” and its countercultural revolution, has given way to an increase in drug use, no-fault divorce, cohabitation, out-of-wedlock births and abortion. Everything’s fair game. Nothing’s off limits. Anything goes. Now, we are about to witness the latest cultural domino to fall. Imagine states without boundaries and speed without limits. What same-sex marriage proponents seem to be asking the Court to do is to remove ancient boundary lines for human relationships based on what they wish to do. That opens the door to anything and everything else,

depending on how well organized they are and what political clout they can muster. Personal experience, like that of Sen. Rob Portman (R-OH), who announced recently that his son is gay, is now supposed to trump Scripture and the will of California voters? While most politicians take their oaths of office on the Bible, many of them prove by their actions that they don’t believe, or follow, what’s in it. Better they should place their hands on Rolling Stone or People magazines, which more accurate-

ly reflect the direction and attitude of contemporary culture. Perhaps Kim Kardashian should decide where the country stands on same-sex marriage? It’s when individuals, not God, become the standard by which truth and right and wrong are judged that we get a Supreme Court deciding our ultimate direction. Some liberals believe the Constitution is a “living” document that must constantly evolve to fit the times. It is not. Some liberal theologians believe the same about the Scriptures. They believe these, too, must evolve, because serving God is no longer the standard; serving Man is. Suzanne Collins, author of “The Hunger Games” trilogy has observed: “...collective thinking is usually short-lived. We’re fickle, stupid beings with poor memories and a great gift for self-destruc-

tion.” In his 1882 play, “An Enemy of the People,” Norwegian playwright Henrik Ibsen wrote, “Public opinion is an extremely mutable thing.” Indeed it is and the fickle public, relying on the opinion of others, instead of eternal truths, to shape beliefs, is treading on very thin ice that has already begun to crack. Following public opinion can and usually does, lead to moral, social and political anarchy. I give you the Roman Empire and the ancient city of Corinth, in the event that anything about history and how it can repeat itself, absent immutable principles, is being adequately taught in schools today.

Cyprus and Seizures

The Mediterranean island nation of Cyprus this week became the mouse that roared — and it should be loud enough to grab Americans’ attention. Cyprus’ parliament on Tuesday unanimously rejected a plan by the European Union and the International Monetary Fund to pay for a previous financial bailout: a onetime “special bank levy” that would take 6.75 percent out of all bank deposits up to 100,000 euros, and 9.9 percent above that. When Cypriots responded with outrage, the EU finance ministers reduced the percentages, placing most of the sacrifice on the wealthiest depositors, but the nation wasn’t fooled. This move wasn’t about degrees, but principles. This was no “tax,” as the EU claimed, but an ad hoc seizure of private assets. It doesn’t matter how small the percentage is or to whom it is limited — once a government has a rationale for taking, without warning or due process, someone’s property, then the precedent is set that nobody’s assets are safe. The Cypriot government responded appropriately by telling the EU “no deal,” but just the fact the idea was openly floated has rung alarm bells across other EU debtor nations. Cyprus’ size — a population of 1 million, its economy accounting for less than 1 percent of Europe’s GDP — is deceptive given its status as a major offshore financial center that in recent years has seen a significant increase in deposits from Russian and Ukrainian businesses, some of them of questionable repute. Which should make other EU debtor nations, such as Italy, Spain and Portugal, particularly nervous. Perhaps Cyprus’ resistance will persuade the EU to find alternative solutions. The aborted Cypriot seizure, though, is like a near-death experience that should make everyone sit up and take notice. This isn’t some dark conspiracy theory, a game of “what if.” It was an actual proposal that shows how far the EU is willing to go (if not further). Who’s to say it will remain dead and buried? What prevents it from returning at a more fortuitous time, or with more seductive terms? The message the EU just sent was: Your assets are not safe. It undermines confidence in insured deposits, a key function of modern banking. At worst, it inspires panics and runs on banks — people would rather put their money under their mattresses or bury it in coffee cans in the back yard, where only they can access it. At best, they transfer their wealth to safer havens in other countries, which creates a greater drag on the economy and further deepens a nation’s financial hole. There is no robust investment, no risk taking, no innovation or growth. The United States is not yet in the dire financial straits of Cyprus or Greece; it still has time to reverse course. But the EU’s clumsy move shows what lies at the end of the current path of unlimited spending, and adds another degree of uncertainty and fear into global finances. Congress would do well to pass legislation that prohibits government from these kinds of asset seizures — if only to inject some confidence into the system.

Holy Week and Holy War (Part 1)

It’s Holy Week, but what’s not so holy is the assault on religious liberty in the U.S. Religious liberty has been called rightly America’s “first freedom,” not only because the right is contained in the First Amendment but also because it predates the U.S. and has its origin in God, not government, and the freedoms he endowed within us. But over the past few decades, that basic freedom has come under assault — particularly, in recent years, regarding Christianity. Last week, I discussed how religious liberty in foreign countries is being suppressed. This week, I will begin to address how it has been assaulted right here in the U.S. I will give you roughly 36 examples this week


Guest Editorial The Panama City News Herald

DEAR DOCTOR K: You’ve mentioned nuts as a healthy snack in previous columns. I thought nuts were high in fat and calories. DEAR READER: Nuts are high in fat and calories, and they are also a great food. Am I nuts? As we’ve often said in this column, there are “good fats” and “bad fats.” Nuts mainly have the former. The “good fats” are monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats. Those fats are essential and deliver lots of health benefits, as I’ll discuss in more detail. And nuts have relatively few “bad fats” — artery-clogging saturated fats, trans fats and cholesterol. With small portion sizes, you can keep the calories in check. I love nuts, and the only way I can discipline myself is to buy them prepack-


aged in small bags and limit myself to no more than one or two bags per day. Nuts pack a nutritious punch of protein, vitamin E, folic acid, magnesium, potassium and fiber. Almonds, walnuts, peanuts (though peanuts actually are a legume, not a nut), cashews and hazelnuts are all good



and next. The assault on religious liberty isn’t a matter of opinion or a simple issue of left vs. right or even religious vs. secular. The case is as clear as a blue sky. Most glaring in recent news is the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ mandate forcing, regardless of any moral or religious objections, religious organizations to pay for free contraceptives, sterilizations

and abortion-inducing drugs in their employee health care plans. And if you think this is an isolated circumstance, consider that in the past few years alone, the following assaults on religious liberty occurred, as reported by the Family Research Council, the office of Rep. Randy Forbes, R-Va., and various media outlets. —A social service worker at a Minnesota senior living complex banned an elderly resident, in the Alliance Defending Freedom’s words, “from praying, reading her Bible, and discussing her faith in private conversations with other residents in the commons area.” —A New York high-school science teacher who has been with

choices. (On my website,, I’ve put a table listing the amounts of calories, fat and protein in a variety of nuts.) Nuts contain very little carbohydrate. Fats of all types are better at satisfying your appetite than carbs. Unlike chips and other high-carbohydrate snacks, nuts don’t leave you hungry right away. As a result, you’re less likely to overeat. Even though nuts are high in calories, people who eat them more frequently are less likely to gain weight or be obese. How can that be? Weight loss is about eating fewer calories (and increasing physical activity). So, if nuts make you feel full, perhaps you’ll eat less overall. See DR. K, Page A5

her school district for seven years was threatened with termination by school officials if she didn’t take down posters with religious messages, notes with Bible quotes and a “prayer request” box for the school’s Bible study club. —In neighboring New Jersey, the censorship continued, as a substitute teacher was fired for giving a student a Bible. —An East Texas high school barred its cheerleaders from using banners with Bible verses on them at football games. —A Pennsylvania school district demanded that a group pay a rental fee to hold a Biblebased after-school program at an elementary school, even See NORRIS, Page A5

The performance which is for the talent competition, will be performed in English and Spanish. Miss Berry earned the right to represent Roswell at the state pageant when she was named Miss Roswell during the local preliminary held at Pearson Auditorium.


Roswell Daily Record


Help appreciated Ms. Lopez, I wanted to sincerely thank you and your team of Job Corps students for making the First World Cup of 2013 a success. Without your efforts, our event simply would not have happened. The wide array of work your team put forth was truly appreciated throughout the Pentathlon as a whole, as well as being imperative to each of the five individual athletic events. Both the physical and mental work done by your team of students was impressive, from the youngest students through the professors that worked along with them. I would like to specifically commend two students with whom I worked closely throughout the week: Jesse Gomes and Michael Zufelt. They went above and beyond expectations during the combined event. Their work ethic was evident from the start, and I quickly realized that I could trust them to carry out any task for me, from setting up and tearing down the course between events, to retrieving results from the previous events, which admittedly is no easy task and usually requires being assertive and demanding while remaining professional: something that I could trust them both to do. Not only did I trust these tasks to Jesse and Michael, but they began to anticipate my needs and were soon one step ahead of me, having completed tasks before I could ask for them to be done. They both showed an initiative and responsibility that was truly appreciated by both me and my

timing team. They made our event run smoother and more efficiently and were simply a joy to work with. Again, I'd like to express my deep appreciation to your whole team of students and professors who helped make the Palm Springs Pentathlon possible. Your hand was evident in every event and you were a much needed positive force the entire week of the Pentathlon. In gratitude, Sarah Deming Run Director

Dear Sir, I really enjoyed the letter you printed in your Thursday, March 7, edition from Donald Burleson! Evolutionists profess they have the greatest scientific theory ever put forward. In fact, their emperor has no clothes. Clearly a scientist should test all the evidence in front of him before coming to a conclusion. However, archaeological ‘evidence’ comes up lacking in Clovis for example and other sites

Nuts seem to protect against heart disease as well. Switching to a nutfilled diet tends to improve cholesterol levels, lower blood pressure and reduce inflammation. These changes may translate into real benefits: In observational studies, people who eat more nuts have lower rates of heart disease. Nuts may help with diabetes, too. Normally, blood sugar spikes after we eat. Those post-meal spikes contribute to diabetes in people vulnerable to getting it, and these spikes must be controlled in people who already have diabetes. Nuts don’t cause blood sugar to spike. What’s

more, nuts can blunt the effects of carbohydrates on blood sugar. There are lots of ways to incorporate nuts into your diet. Add almonds or walnuts to your cereal or low-fat yogurt at breakfast. Toss them into a pasta dish, or use finely chopped nuts in place of breadcrumbs as a coating for chicken or fish. My favorite way? Enjoying a small handful of nuts as an afternoon snack. And among them must be almonds — in my opinion, the most delicious nuts of all. (Dr. Komaroff is a physician and professor at Harvard Medical School.

‘around the world’ as there really is insuf ficient evidence to prove that human life has been here for as long as scientists have ‘guesstimated’. The so called tens of thousands of years of mankind are based on surprisingly thin evidence and are unconvincing. In fact the fossil record strongly indicates that major kinds of plants and animals appeared abruptly and did not evolve into other kinds. Those who have researched the Bible will know the earth could be billions of years old, not 6000 years. Read my letter again for clarification please Donald. Radioactive dating methods have been sharply criticized by scientists. A journal reports, ‘dates determined by radioactive decay may be off, not only be a few years, but by orders of magnitude. Man, instead of having walked the earth for 3.6 million years, may have been around for only a few thousand’. What stands out in his response though is his lack of an answer to the question I raised — Where do the designs come from? Evolutionists claim that the best mechanisms are automatically selected because the living things that have them survive better. That does not answer the question, ‘where do the mechanisms come from?’ Evolutionists would like to believe that people are skeptical of evolution because they’ve been religiously indoctrinated and haven’t been properly educated — this is a curious claim given that for the past 40 years or more public schools have exclusively taught evolution!! Rather than a problem of educa-

tion, Donald, the problem is one of evidence. Evolution just does not have the goods. The idea that we evolved from apes is purely fantasy. As interesting as genetic similarities are, they are not evidence for evolution. Design explains it. It’s a different product with similar parts, materials and arrangements. There is hopelessly insufficient EVIDENCE to prove any connection to man. There is a well known joke — a scientist approaches God and claims he can do anything God can. God asks ‘such as what?’ The scientist replies ‘like creating human beings’. God says ‘show me’. The scientist says ‘well let me start with some dust, and then... God interrupts, ‘wait a second, get your own dust’. FACT — All scientific research indicated that life cannot spring from nonliving matter. At present it takes greater faith to believe that millions of intricately coordinated parts of a cell arose by chance than to believe that the cell is the product of an intelligent designer. The Bible is indeed not a science textbook but when it refers to science it is unerringly correct — divine wisdom within it was more than 2000 years ahead of man. The people who wrote the Bible were infused with holy spirit, enabling them to write information disputed by scientists for 2000 years before scientists realized these Bible writers were correct. Yes, scientists are finally catching up with the facts as recorded by Bible writers infused by God. They may not have been geneticists, geologists or chemists but they had holy spirit guiding them,

though other nonprofits — including the Boy Scouts of America, the Boys & Girls Clubs of America and the American Legion — aren’t charged for using school facilities. —There was a similar case in California. The American Center for Law and Justice said it filed suit against a California school district for rejecting “a Christian youth club’s request to meet in District facilities on equal grounds with similar, nonprofit, nonreligious youth organizations.” —Another school board, this one in New Holland, Pa., decided to replace prayer with a moment of silence. —An Eastern Michigan University counseling student was expelled during her last semester for her Christian beliefs. —Officials at Louisiana State University airbrushed a snapshot of football fans to remove small crosses painted on the students’ bodies at a game. —Tufts University suspended official recognition of Tufts Christian Fellowship because the organization required its leaders to adhere to its religious beliefs. (Yes, you read that correctly.) —Several religious student organizations at Vanderbilt University were placed on “provisional status” until they allowed for students who do not share their core religious beliefs to obtain leadership positions within the organizations. (Yes, you read that correctly, too.) —Culture and courts are trumping the First Amendment rights of citizens who are refusing on religious grounds to support or participate with groups and events that run contrary to their faith and practice. As a result, wedding cake bakers, shirt-makers, bed-and-breakfast owners, pastry-makers, high-school teachers, military chaplains, restaurant owners, photographers, parents, churches and others have been harassed, bullied, suspended, fired and sued for merely exercising their Christian beliefs. (Next week, I will highlight 24 more examples of the assault on U.S. religious liberty.) According to a recent poll by the Barna Group, “most Americans (are) worried about the future of religious freedom, (and) many feel the restraints have already started.


witness the apostle Paul’s words at 2 Timothy 3:16, ‘ALL scripture is inspired of God’. Donald thinks only occasional scientists query evolution and only then ‘for religious reasons’ — very humorous Donald! In his own words in February 2013 let me quote an esteemed designer of robots, ‘As a young man, I heard toward atheism. I was taught that life originated by means of evolution, and I accepted that as fact’. ‘However, IN 1990, my sister gave me a copy of the book Life—How Did It Get Here? By Evolution or by Creation? The careful research that had gone into this work impressed me. It then dawned on me that I had accepted evolution without really questioning it. For example, I had assumed that evolution was well supported by the fossil record. But it is not. Indeed, the more I examined evolution, the more I became convinced that the theory is more bluster than fact’. Donald may encourage me to read more books, take more courses, but he may be surprised to learn that I was privately educated in Europe and taught evolution and creation. It’s pleasing to say that evolution teaches us nothing whereas creation teaches us that there is a purpose to life, that purpose being found clearly in the Bible. Donald, it would be a pleasure to really explain God’s Word to you so you can then state you have examined the evidence from both design and evolution standpoints. Sincerely, John Watson Roswell

One-third of adults believe religious freedoms have grown worse in the last decade.” The study added, “More than half of adults say they are very (29 percent) or somewhat (22 percent) concerned that religious freedom in the U.S. will become more restricted in the next five years.” Now is not the time to flee from the fundamentals of America, especially our religious liberties. Rather, we should re-embrace them, especially during this sacred Holy Week. What is so difficult about understanding the free exercise clause in the First Amendment, which says governing authorities “shall make no law ... prohibiting the free exercise” of religion? As I said last week, we shouldn’t fear diversity or differences; rather, we should be proud of them. We must not hinder others’ opinion or be intimidated by the sharing of our own. We must neither fear repercussions nor threaten others with them because of our differing beliefs. We must learn again the power and benefits of religious liberty and free speech (even debate) and to agree to disagree agreeably on even the most passionate of issues. It is everyone’s individual right (first freedom) to express his faith as he wishes and where he wishes. During this Holy Week, my wife, Gena, and I profess our belief in Jesus Christ, his crucifixion and resurrection, and his free offer of salvation to the whole world — his steps to peace with God. (See for more information.) It’s high time for teachers, leaders, politicians and clergy (the black robe regiment), as well as every other American citizen, to start standing up and pushing back against these assaults on religious liberty. It’s time we all turn into cultural heroes by standing up for our faith and First Amendment rights! Friends, it’s Holy Week, and you have rights from God and country to exercise your religious freedoms, faith and practices, wherever and whenever you would like.

AG drops Herrera investigation SANTA FE (AP) — A three-year investigation into allegations of wrongdoing by former New Mexico Secretary of State Mary Herrera has been closed, and Attorney General Gary King will not be filing any charges. King said in a letter sent to Herrera earlier this month that there wasn’t a “sufficient basis” for his office to proceed with a criminal investigation. Herrera told the Santa Fe New Mexican on Wednesday that she was happy it was over. “It was all politically motivated,” the Democrat said. “It has hurt me.” Herrera lost her re-election bid in 2010 and said she was passed over for an elections-related job in Georgia because of the allegations and the investigation.

It started in February 2010, when Herrera was accused by a former elections director of violating the Governmental Conduct Act by ordering certain employees to collect signatures for her re-election campaign and insisting that employees solicit “sponsorships or donations” from businesses that contracted with the state to support training seminars for county clerk staff. Later that year, Herrera fired two top administrators who made similar accusations. The former employees filed lawsuits, claiming Herrera had violated the state Whistleblower Act because they had talked with federal investigators and the attorney general about possible wrongdoing in the office.

Investigators with the attorney general’s office interviewed Herrera and members of her staf f shortly before she left office in December 2010. It wasn’t immediately clear why it took so long for King, a Democrat, to declare the case closed. Herrera suggested the Whistleblower Act be amended by state lawmakers to include stronger penalties for filing false or frivolous complaints under the act. During the most recent legislative session, Herrera worked for the House Voters and Elections Committee. However, she said she has no plans to run for political office in the future.

CHIMAYO (AP) — Tens of thousands of pilgrims are expected during Easter weekend to visit El Santuario de Chimayo, one of the most popular Catholic shrines in the Americas. And this year, pilgrims are coming to this adobe chapel in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains under historic circumstances — the “Lourdes of America” is now under the first pope from the Wester n Hemisphere. Just two weeks after Pope Francis was elected, around 50,000 are expected to visit the popular northern New Mexico Catholic shrine, and officials say even more may come because of Argentine-born pontiff.


Foster children SANTA FE (AP) — Gov. Susana Martinez has signed a measure into law to allow state officials to conduct immediate criminal background checks before placing foster children in the emergency protective custody of family members, neighbors or other individuals. The governor said Thursday the new law can help prevent children from being placed in a potentially dangerous home with someone who has a criminal history. The state took custody of several children in 2005, and placed them with grandparents. A background check took several weeks to complete and officials found that the grandfather had criminal convictions in another state. The children were moved to other caregivers. Rangeland health ALBUQUERQUE (AP) — Federal researchers say invasive plants could pose the greatest threat to the future health of rangeland across the U.S. The U.S. Forest Service released a report Wednesday, saying three-quarters of rangelands are in relatively good ecological shape and that there’s enough forage for wildlife and livestock. But the report says there are thousands of nonnative plant species in the U.S. and the 16 most pervasive ones have affected 126 million acres. In some regions, invasive plants are spreading at a rate of more

The report notes that in 2000, the damage and control ef forts resulting from the annual costs of invasive plants was about $137 billion. Pipeline explosion SANTA FE (AP) — New Mexico pipeline safety regulators say New Mexico Gas Co. violated state laws and federal regulations during work that occurred before a 2012 explosion in a Santa Fe subdivision. The Public Regulation Commission’s staff is asking the commission to hold formal proceedings on the accident that injured two company workers when they cut into a pipeline with a hacksaw. According to the Santa Fe New Mexican, the staff’s petition recommends that the company be required to take steps to prevent similar accidents. Investigators say violations include not properly purging the line of gas before working on it and

not having workers wear flame-retardant clothes. The company disputes some of the investigators’ finding. A company spokeswoman declined to comment because the matter is under investigation. Sunport traffic ALBUQUERQUE (AP) — New numbers show that New Mexico’s largest airport saw a 19.4-percent dip in passenger traffic from 2007 to 2012. Albuquerque Jour nal reports that Albuquerque International Sunport also has seen a steep decline in the number of daily departures and has lost non-stop service to a dozen destinations since 2008. In addition, year-to-date passenger numbers are 12.1 percent lower than the same period in 2012, the kind of drop officials say hasn’t been seen since the aftermath of Sept. 11. City Aviation Director Jim Hinde says the department is forecasting continued decline at the Sunport until 2016. The news comes as JetBlue is scheduled to debut in Albuquerque next month, giving travelers a daily, nonstop flight between Albuquerque and New York City.

Lopez says late-night hosting days are behind him SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — Amid rumors of another “Tonight” show shake-up, comedian George Lopez says he has no desire to return to the late-night talk show scene. Lopez said he had a great two-year run as a late-night talk show host. But, he said, “I’m out of that thing.” “I know all those guys. They’re all good guys, but that’s a tough job. There are a lot of tough jobs in TV. That could be one of the toughest, hosting a show every night,” Lopez said Wednesday night. Lopez’s comments in Sioux Falls before taking the stage for a stand-up show benefiting the Brennan Rock & Roll Academy come after amid fresh turbulence in the late-night talk show business after word leaked last week that “Late Night” host Jimmy Fallon will unseat Jay Leno as the new host of NBC’s “Tonight.” The network has not confirmed the rumor. Lopez wound up losing his cable television gig in August 2011 in a trickle-down effect from the last time the “Tonight” seat changed hands. TBS canceled “Lopez Tonight” after its second-year viewership dropped 40 percent when Lopez moved his show back an hour to midnight to make room for Conan O’Brien. Lopez gave up his 11 p.m. Eastern slot to accommodate O’Brien, who joined TBS after a timeslot dispute that ended up reinstating Jay Leno as “Tonight” host. Lopez said he had a great time hosting the TBS show and that the gig gave him the opportunity to get to know everyone in the entertainment field, from actors Helen Mirren and Ben Kingsley to musicians Prince, Janet Jackson and Snoop Dogg. “I tried to create a party, and we did,” he said. “The greatest was getting a harmonic from John Popper and then doing shots with the band, Blues Traveler, in the back.” Lopez joked that he’s probably better off that the party ended “just for the fact that I wanted to live a little bit longer.” “We went hard every night,” he said. “We did it like the old days. You’d sit around and drink till like 11 and then go home and come back and do it all over again. Lopez said he’s been keeping busy since his show was canceled, voicing parts for “Smurfs 2” and “Rio 2” and working on an “alleged project in TV.” He was recently appointed by Bill Cosby to take over as master of ceremonies of the annual Playboy Jazz Festival. “He called me himself and he said he’d like for me to succeed him, which is a tremendous honor,” Lopez said. “And also we had a 40-minute conversation of the dos and don’ts of hosting.” Cosby has been a fixture at the gathering of jazz luminaries since the first festival in 1979. This year’s show, scheduled for June 15 and 16 at the Hollywood Bowl, will feature Herbie Hancock, Jeffrey Osborne, Sheila E. and Grace Kelly


AP source: Alice Cooper, Barbara Walters Doors guitarist to retire next year playing at academy

NEW YORK (AP) — Barbara Walters plans to retire next year, ending a television career that began more than a half century ago and made her a trailblazer in news and daytime TV. Someone who works closely with Walters said the plan is for her to retire in May 2014 after a series of special programs saluting her career. The person was not authorized to discuss the matter publicly and spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity Thursday. Walters, 83, was hospitalized earlier this year after falling and cutting her head while leaving a party in Washington and remained out of work after developing the chickenpox. Largely retired from ABC News already, her main work is at “The View,” the daytime hit she created in 1997. Her television career began in 1961 when she was hired as a writer for the “Today” show. She graduat-

ed quickly to on-air work and became the show’s cohost before leaving in 1976 to become co-anchor of ABC’s evening news with Harry Reasoner — the first woman in such a role for a television network. The pairing ended quickly and Walters settled into a role as ABC News’ cajolerin-chief, competing ferociously to land newsmaking interviews with heads of state and stars of the day. She regularly did interview specials, including an annual show with the most fascinating people of the year, and was co-host of “20/20” for two decades, much of the time with Hugh Downs. She described “The View” as the “dessert” of her career, a regular gathering of women chatting about the hot topics of the day and interviewing visiting presidents and actors eager to reach a daytime audience.

IOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — A pair of Rock and Roll Hall of Famers took the stage Thursday in South Dakota for the first show in a week of concerts benefiting a music academy for Sioux Falls Boys & Girls Clubs members. Alice Cooper and guitarist Robby Krieger of The Doors jammed with a who’s who of ’80s glam and metal to help christen the $3.6 million Brennan Rock & Roll Academy in Sioux Falls. Also performing: Joey Allen of Warrant, former Skid Row frontman Sebastian Bach, and Eric Singer and Tommy Thayer of Kiss. “These guys all know my songs, so I’ll be doing four or five of my songs, and then a couple of Doors songs,” Cooper told The Associated Press before the show. He said he was looking forward to performing t h e l at e Jim M or r ison ’ s p a rt s o n “ B r ea k o n Through (To the Other Side) and “Back Door Man.” “I’m filling in for Jim tonight. I’ve done it many times,” Cooper said. The all-star band also planned to perform some Kiss songs and a little Skid Row. The $1,000-a-ticket concert is a fundraiser for the center, which is the brainchild of Sioux Falls native Chuck Brennan. Brennan, the founder of short-term lender Dollar Loan Center, based his id ea o n C oop er ’ s S olid R oc k F ou n d at ion in Phoenix. Cooper said about 100 kids a night are flocking to his Solid Rock center, which opened about two years ago. “If you take one kid out of a gang and get him involved in rock ‘n’ roll or get him involved in a guitar or bass or drums, you don’t just change that kid, you change the neighborhood,” he said. The Sioux Falls academy has had the feel of an exclusive, intimate venue this week, but starting in April it will become the after noon home for young people looking to learn or improve their skills in guitar, bass, drums, keyboards or vocals. Lesson s will b e given in n in e sou n d p r oof rehearsal rooms, five of which are wired to a professional mixing and recording studio. The four upstairs rehearsal rooms will honor Kiss, with each decorated as an homage to the band members characters: The Demon, Starchild, Catman and Spaceman. Kiss’ Thayer, who grew up playing saxophone in a school music program before he ever touched a guitar, said the facility will spark kids’ creative side. “I’m blown away with this whole facility,” Thayer said. “I think it’s a great thing.”

Tonight: Be aware of tomorrow. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)  Open up to a new possibility. How you handle a difficult conversation could affect the relationship in question. Listen to news, and understand that the sentiments of the moment could change quickly. Follow through on a suggestion. Tonight: Beam in the weekend. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)  You might feel as if you can’t do everything that you want to do. Sort through a financial matter first, and then decide which way you should go as far as making plans.

If we don’t correct it, good teams are eventually going to beat us and it could happen tomorrow (against Santa Rosa).” Gateway was charged with eight errors in the game and close to half of the Institute’s runs were unearned. Warrior coach Rick Rapp said there were just too many gaffes to overcome. “I don’t know what it was, but eight or nine errors, whatever it was, is just way too many and it puts too much pressure on the pitcher,” he said. “We need to make the routine plays. When they hit the ball in the gap, we just take our hats off to them. “But, when we give them three, four, five, six outs in an inning, that will catch up to you.” Both teams scored once in the first before the Warriors

Duran said that a pair of losses to Lovington on Tuesday helped his team defeat the Bears. “Like I said, we had a tough two-game loss against Lovington

and I believe it made us grow up a little bit and understand the game a little bit better,” he said. “(It helped us) understand the situation — where you have to be, what a base runner has to do when he gets on.” Munoz picked up the win for the Demons. The senior struck out eight and allowed six hits in six innings of work. Paez and Ramiro Robles led the Dexter of fense with two hits apiece.

Marquette marches on Syracuse beats with 71-61 win over Miami Indiana 61-50 WASHINGTON (AP) — After sweating through a pair of edge-of-yourseat comebacks, Marquette’s first Sweet 16 victory in a decade was as straight and smooth as the 15-foot step-back jumper that Vander Blue nailed at the end of the first half. It helped that the Golden Eagles ran into an out-of-sorts Miami team that, in an echo of its bus ride to the Verizon Center, was able to make as much headway as a frustrated commuter in rush-hour traffic. Marquette is in the Elite Eight for the first time since 2003, getting there with an emphatic 71-61 win over Miami on Thursday night. The Golden Eagles were never threatened after taking a double-digit lead in the first half, quite the contrast from their rallies that beat Davidson by one and Butler by two earlier in the NCAA tournament. “It’s fantastic. It feels good not to have to worry about, are you going to lose on a last-second shot or are you going to win on a last-second shot?” said Jamil Wilson, who had 16 points and eight rebounds. “To have a cushion like that, these guys played with tremendous heart, and we did it all game.” Blue, who made the shot that beat Davidson and led the comeback against Butler, finished with 14 points. He wasn’t Marquette’s leading scorer, but his offensive and defensive energy pushed the Golden Eagles to a big lead early. It’s a good thing he got his buzzer-beater before halftime — for a change, Marquette didn’t need one at the end of the game. “We’re so used to people not giving

LaQuinton Ross’ late 3 sends Ohio St past Arizona

LOS ANGELES (AP) — LaQuinton Ross hit the tiebreaking 3-pointer with 2 seconds to play, and Ohio State advanced to the brink of its second straight Final Four appearance with a 73-70 victory over Arizona on Thursday night in the West Regional semifinals. Ross, the Buckeyes’ remarkable reserve, scored 14 of his 17 points in the second half for the second-seeded Buckeyes (29-7), who rallied from an early 11-point deficit and weathered the sixthseeded Wildcats’ late charge for their 11th consecutive victory since mid-February. Deshaun Thomas scored 20 points for Ohio State, and Aaron Craft added 13 before ceding the Buckeyes’ final shot to Ross. Craft hit an awfully similar 3-pointer against Iowa State last Sunday to send the Buckeyes forward. Mark Lyons’ acrobatic three-point play for the Wildcats (27-8) had tied it with 21.8 seconds left. Craft dribbled down the clock and gave it to Ross, who coolly drilled his second 3pointer and set off a wild celebration in the Ohio State section of the Arizona-dominated crowd. On Saturday, Ohio State will face the winner of the late game between underdogs Wichita State and La Salle. As the only topeight seed left in the West, the Buckeyes will be Atlanta-bound with one more win. Sam Thompson added 11 points for the Buckeyes, who trailed for nearly the entire first half before pushing ahead and nursing a small lead throughout the final minutes. Lyons scored 23 points including his gutsy three-point play for the Wildcats, who rallied from a 10-point deficit in the second half before falling just short of their second NCAA regional final in four years. Solomon Hill added 16 points in his native Los Angeles, but the rest of Arizona combined for just 31 points on 10-for-29 shooting. After Arizona jumped out to that early 11point lead, Ohio State gathered its game and mounted a 33-13 surge spanning halftime, taking a 53-43 lead with 11 minutes left. The Wildcats finally answered, but Ross kept the Buckeyes in front with nine consecutive points down the stretch. Craft became a tournament hero last Sunday against Iowa State, hitting a lastsecond 3-pointer and drawing a questionable charge moments earlier in the Buckeyes’ 78-75 win. Ross had his turn in the spotlight at Staples Center, and he didn’t flinch. The game was the second NCAA tournament meeting between Ohio State coach

us credit. ... That fuels our fire,” Blue said. The third-seeded Golden Eagles (26-8) will face Big East rival Syracuse, the No. 4 seed, in the East Regional final on Saturday, aiming for a spot in the Final Foul for the first time since the 2003 team led by current Miami Heat star Dwyane Wade. Marquette was knocked out in the round of 16 the past two years. “after 3 tries in the sweet 16 we finally figured it out. Congrts,” Wade tweeted after the game. Syracuse beat top-seeded Indiana 61-50 in the other East Regional semifinal. This one wasn’t hard to decipher. Marquette could shoot; Miami couldn’t. The Hurricanes (29-7) had sentiment on their side, returning to the arena where coach Jim Larranaga led mid-major George Mason to the Final Four seven years ago, but they made only 35 percent of their field goals and missed 18 of 26 3-pointers. “You ever have days where you’re just out of sync or things just don’t run along smoothly?” Larranaga said. “Almost like our trip over here. Our hotel is a mile and a half, it took us 45 minutes to get here. We had to go on nine different streets, weaving our way in and out of traffic and everything. And that’s the way it seemed on the court. We were trying to find our way and never could. Never could get in rhythm offensively, and defensively. I don’t think we communicated like we have been doing all season long.” Shane Larkin scored 14 points to lead the No. 2 seed Hurricanes,

Thad Matta and Arizona’s Sean Miller, whose friendship goes back two decades to their time together at Miami of Ohio and Xavier. Despite losing to UCLA in the Pac-12 tournament semifinals to cap an inconsistent stretch of play, Arizona got a No. 6 seed and blew out Belmont and Harvard in the NCAA tournament’s first weekend, reaching the regional semifinals for the 15th time. Ohio State hasn’t lost since Feb. 17, beating Indiana on the road before winning the Big Ten tournament. The Buckeyes had much more trouble than Arizona in their first two NCAA games, but they’re showing a knack for last-minute heroics at the perfect time. Arizona took the lead on its first basket, a 3-pointer from Lyons in the opening minute, and held it throughout a slow-moving first half featuring 19 fouls. With superior ball movement and scoring balance, the Wildcats eventually pushed the margin to 31-20 on Nick Johnson’s 3-pointer with 7 minutes left in the half. Ohio State finally awoke when Craft returned to the game after sitting early with two fouls, trimming the margin to 38-34 by halftime. The Buckeyes finished the half on a 14-7 run capped by the second 3-pointer from Thomas, who scored 16 of their 34 first-half points with his steady all-around game. Thompson’s layup with 17:39 left gave Ohio State its first lead since 2-0, and the Buckeyes opened the second half with a 100 run while holding Arizona scoreless for more than 6 1/2 minutes spanning halftime.

whose NCAA run to the round of 16 matched the best in school history. “I think what we did this year was lay a foundation of what the program could be like,” Larranaga said. “We’re not anywhere near where I would like to be.” Marquette, meanwhile, shot 54 percent, a stark turnaround from its 38 percent rate from the first two games in the tournament. Davante Gardner added 14 points, with 12 coming in the second half when the Golden Eagles were comfortably ahead. Comfortable being a relative term. Coach Buzz Williams, who relishes the Golden Eagles’ underdog status, hardly seemed to know how to take such an easy win. He didn’t look or sound like a winning coach afterward. “Because of my path to this point, I do have an edge, and I probably need to have better wisdom as to how to handle that edge,” Williams said. “But it’s really delicate because our edge is why we win.” Blue got going when he picked off a pass and converted the steal into a one-handed jam to give Marquette an 8-4 lead. His running one-hander made it 12-4. Blue and Junior Cadougan forced a steal, getting Larkin to commit his second foul in the process. Blue ended the half with an exclamation point, hitting the jumper just before the horn to give Marquette a 29-16 lead at the break. He drained the shot, strutted backward downcourt, cocked his right arm and gave Wilson a chest bump.

WASHINGTON (AP) — It took winning a national title for Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim to get over a late-shot loss to Indiana the last time the schools faced off in the NCAA tournament. This meeting, 26 years later, was never close enough to come down to the final seconds, thanks mostly to Boeheim’s trademark 2-3 zone defense. Now he has the Orange one victory from getting back to the Final Four. Limiting Indiana to its lowest output of the season while forcing 19 turnovers and compiling 10 blocks, fourth-seeded Syracuse used Michael Carter-Williams’ 24 points to upset the No. 1 seed Hoosiers 61-50 Thursday night to reach the East Regional final. After getting past preseason No. 1 Indiana, Syracuse (29-9) will face No. 3 seed Marquette on Saturday night in an all-Big East matchup for a berth in the Final Four. Boeheim and the Orange haven’t been to the national semifinals since Carmelo Anthony led them to the 2003 title. Marquette beat No. 2 seed Miami 71-61 in Thursday’s first game in Washington. Syracuse, which is leaving for the Atlantic Coast Conference this summer, lost at Marquette 74-71 during the Big East regular season on Feb. 25. Less than a half-minute into Thursday’s game, as Indiana star Victor Oladipo headed to the free-throw line, the arena’s overhead scoreboard showed a replay of “The Shot,” as it’s come to be known — Keith Smart’s baseline jumper in the final seconds that lifted Bob Knight’s Hoosiers past Boeheim’s Orange in the 1987 national title game. Boeheim said he wasn’t able to put that behind him until 16 years later, when he got his title. Boeheim entered Thursday with 50 wins in the tournament, fourth-most in history, and more than 900 victories overall, and so much of that success has been built thanks to his unusual zone defense, 40 minutes of a puzzle for opponents to try and solve. Indiana, like most teams outside the Big East, isn’t used to seeing that sort of thing, and it showed right from the outset.

DEAR ABBY: My boyfriend and I have been dating for several months. He’s fun and caring, and we spend a lot of time together. He’s different from other boys I have dated. We can talk to each other about anything. My only concern is our relationship physically. He makes it very clear that he wants to go all the way with me. He isn’t rude or pushy about it. I don’t want to rush into anything. We are both virgins (he does have more experience), and while I have known him for a long time, I don’t know him as well as I’d like. I want to wait until we have dated for at least six months. He says he respects my decision and says he

DEAR UNSURE: Yes, it would be wrong. The first time you have sex it should be because you are 100 percent sure you are ready, and he is the right person. If that’s not the case, you will be cheating yourself. And as for feeling guilty because you are leaving him frustrated — I have a solution. Socialize with him in group settings and spend less time alone together. That way there will be less frustration for him and less temptation for both of you.

year-old son. For most of his life it has just been the two of us. I now regret that I put him in bed with me when he was a baby. As he grew older, I encouraged him to sleep in his own bed, but it would last only a few nights, and then he would sneak back into my room. I was married for three years when he was around 11, and he’d sneak into my husband’s and my bedroom after we were asleep and sleep on a couch in there. His problem is he is terrified of the dark and believes in ghosts, monsters, etc. He says he has a phobia and I believe him. I tried getting a dog for him to sleep with and night-lights, but nothing worked. If I lock him out, he lays awake all night, scared to death. I kept thinking he would grow out of this, but he hasn’t. Please help. I can’t really afford therapy, but if you think he needs it, I will try. TROUBLED IN ARIZONA

It is common for young people to express their individuality by their dress, hairstyle and makeup. There is, however, a point when a person’s style choices can be limiting.

Dear Readers: Here is an update on one of my recent columns about how to prevent UNSOLICITED CREDIT CARD AND INSURANCE OFFERS. Many wrote saying they were concerned about some of the personal information being asked, especially a Social Security number and date of birth. And rightly so — you want to be sure this private and important information is safe. Yes, it is safe for you to give it in this instance. First, the service to opt out of prescreen solicitations is offered by the major creditreporting companies. The Federal Trade Commission recommends using this service to help stop this annoying mail! Here is what you do. You can call 1-888-5-OPTOUT (888-5678688) or go online to and register. The information you provide is ONLY used to process THIS request. You have initiated the call or online request, so you can feel comfortable giving your identifying information. They, or anyone else, should not CALL YOU and ask for personal financial information! The main reason to ask for a Social Security number is that this number is how most services locate and file your information. There may be several Ted or Tara Thomases living in Texarkana, Texas! However, if you are still a little leery about your Social Security number, you can OPT OUT of giving it. After dialing the phone number, you will be prompted to give your Social Security number. Do not say anything, and the recorded message will move on to the next prompt, for your date of birth. Don’t say anything, and you can move to the next prompt. But, if there are variations of your name (e.g., Mrs. Ted Thomas, Tara Thomas, T. Thomas or Tara T. Thomas), a Social Security number will cut through all of the confusion. Please give it a try, and as always, let me hear from you! How did the system work? — Your friend, Heloise, aka Heloise Hints, Helo..ise, Heloise Heloise, H. Heloise P.S.: You should see the many different ways my name is mangled on mailing lists! Sometimes, when ordering something via phone or online, I’ll use initials or my dog’s nickname just to see who sells the list!

Markets relieved by calm reopening of Cyprus banks LONDON (AP) — Markets responded positively to the calm reopening of Cyprus’s banks Thursday after a near two-week shutdown during which the country agreed on a bailout deal that will seize a chunk of many large deposits. Optimism was further boosted by the S&P 500 index’s foray above its alltime closing high set in Oct., 2007. All eyes will be on whether it can close at a new high before the long Easter weekend. For most of the day, though, the focus in financial markets remained on Cyprus, as it has for the past couple of weeks.

Though there were queues as the banks reopened, there was no sign of panic. Cyprus has imposed capital controls to prevent a run on the banks, the first time such measures have been taken since the euro was established in 1999. “The lack of a run has soothed fears over rising tensions amongst eurozone governments following the bailout,” said Andrew Wilkinson, chief economic strategist at Miller Tabak & Co. in New York. In Europe, the FTSE 100 index of leading British shares closed 0.4 percent higher at 6,411.74 while

NY court OKs tax on online sellers

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — New York’s highest court ruled Thursday the state can collect sales tax from out-of-state retailers, rejecting claims by and that the tax law violates the U.S. Constitution’s Commerce Clause.

The Court of Appeals said in a 4-1 ruling that the 2008 amendment meets the U.S. Supreme Court test that the sellers have “a substantial nexus” with the taxing state. Taxes apply when the online retailers generate at least $10,000 in annual sales to New Yorkers from in-state websites that earn commissions by bringing in potential customers through links to the big retailers., with corporate offices in Washington state, has an “Associates Program” where others put such links on their websites., based in Utah, suspended its similar “Affiliates” program in New York after the state statute was enacted. “Through this statute, the Legislature has attached significance to the physical presence of a resident website owner. The decision to do so recognizes that, even in the Internet world, many websites are geared toward predominantly local audiences,” Chief Judge Jonathan Lippman wrote. “Viewed in this manner the statute plainly satisfies the substantial nexus requirement.” “The bottom line is that if a vendor is paying New York residents to actively solicit business in this state, there is no reason why that vendor should not shoulder the appropriate tax burden,” Lippman wrote. Judges Victoria Graffeo, Susan Read and Eugene Pigott Jr. agreed.

New York’s sales tax is 4 percent and all its counties and New York City add an additional tax ranging from 3 percent to near 5 percent. Both apply to applicable Internet sales, according to the state Department of Taxation and Finance.

Tax Commissioner Thomas Mattox said the ruling affirms New York’s approach to fair tax administration for both brick-and-mortar and Internet-based businesses. Since the law was implemented, it has resulted in about $500 million of state and local sales taxes collected, representing about $6 billion of sales into New York, he said.

“The relatively calm open to Cypriot banks today should not be interpreted as an indication of how the crisis is likely to play out,” said Michael Woolfolk, global markets strategist at Bank of New York Mellon. “As banking crises in Iceland, Argentina and Greece have repeatedly shown, conditions in Cyprus will likely get worse, perhaps much worse, before they get better.” Italy’s political uncertainty will also remain in the spotlight. Following inconclusive elections around a month ago, the country is still without a government, and that’s raised concerns

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Publish March 29, 2013 BEFORE THE NEW MEXICO PUBLIC REGULATION COMMISSION


Case No. 13-00040-UT


NOTICE is hereby given by the New Mexico Public Regulation Commission ("Commission") of the following: On February 12, 2013, Fuego Wireless, LLC ("Fuego") filed with the Commission a Petition for Conditional Designation as an Eligible Telecommunications Carrier (“ETC”) (“Petition”) for the purpose of establishing eligibility to participate in the federal Mobility Fund Phase II program. The Petition was filed pursuant to Section 214(e)(2) of the federal Communications Act of 1934, as amended by the Telecommunications Act of 1996, and NMAC. On February 28, 2013, Fuego amended its petition to clarify that it does not seek ETC designation for any Tribal lands. Fuego requests expedited review and consideration of its Petition because Fuego estimates that Phase II applicants may require that ETC designations be granted as early as May 2013 in order to participate. The Petition requests that the Commission designate Fuego as an ETC for all census blocks within Fuego's service area in the State of New Mexico that are designated as eligible for Mobility Fund Phase II support (with the exception of Tribal lands), and for which Fuego actually wins and receives support. The Petition specifies that Fuego will not seek access to funds from the New Mexico USF at this time. On February 27, 2013, the Commission issued an Initial Order initiating a proceeding for the purpose of considering Fuego's Petition and designating the undersigned to preside over this proceeding. The Commission has assigned Case No. 13-00040-UT to this proceeding, and all inquiries or written comments concerning this matter should refer to that case number. A prehearing conference was convened by the Hearing Examiner on March 19, 2013 and was attended by representatives of Staff and Fuego. As a result, the following expedited procedural schedule was agreed upon and established by a Procedural Order issued on March 22, 2013. This procedural schedule may be modified in the future to reflect newly enacted FCC rules and deadlines associated with Mobility Fund Phase II: 1. Fuego shall file testimony in support of the Petition on or before April 1, 2013. 2. Any person who desires to intervene to become a party to this case must file a Motion for Leave to Intervene, in conformity with and (B) NMAC, on or before April 11, 2013. 3. Intervenors shall file testimony on or before April 18, 2013. 4. Staff shall file testimony on or before April 30, 2013. 5. Rebuttal testimony shall be filed by Fuego, Intervenors or Staff on or before May 6, 2013. 6. A public hearing will be held beginning at 9:00 A.M. on May 16, 2013 and continuing thereafter on May 17, 2013, if necessary, in the Ground Floor Hearing Room of the Commission in the P.E.R.A. Building, 1120 Paseo de Peralta, Santa Fe, New Mexico 87501, to hear and receive evidence, arguments and any other appropriate matters relevant to this proceeding.

In light of the fact that the Federal Communications Commission (“FCC”) has not yet established rules and deadlines for the Mobility Fund Phase II proceeding, the procedural dates and requirements of this case are subject to modification in response to final FCC rules and procedures for the award of Phase II funds. The Hearing Examiner, after consultation with the parties, will issue an Order that establishes any changes in dates or format that are necessitated by the newly enacted FCC rules and procedures. Interested persons should contact the Commission for confirmation of the hearing date, time, and place since hearings are occasionally rescheduled. Any changes necessitated by FCC rules and procedures for the award of Phase II funds may also affect other deadlines set out above and will be reflected in this docket as well. Any interested person may examine Fuego's filing in this case together with any exhibits and related papers filed in this case at the offices of the Commission, P.E.R.A. Building, 1120 Paseo de Peralta, Santa Fe, New Mexico, 87501, telephone (888) 427-5772 or at "Case Lookup Edocket" on the Commission's website at . The Commission's Rules of Procedure ( NMAC) shall apply to this proceeding except as modified by order of the Commission or Hearing Examiner. A copy of the rules may be obtained from the offices of the Commission or at . Anyone filing pleadings, documents or testimony in this case may file either in person at the Commission's docketing office in the P.E.R.A.

Box 1269, Santa Fe, New Mexico 87504-1269, and shall serve a copy on all parties of record and Staff in the manner specified on the most recent Certificate of Service for this case. All filings shall be e-mailed on the date they are filed with the Commission. Any such filings shall also be e-mailed to the Hearing Examiner at All documents e-mailed to the Hearing Examiner shall include Word files if created in that format. Service of discovery requests and responses shall be via e-mail unless otherwise agreed or ordered. Likewise, unless otherwise agreed or ordered, exhibits to discovery responses shall be served electronically at the same time as such responses. Any person whose testimony has been pre-filed shall attend the hearing and submit to examination under oath. Unless otherwise ordered or approved by the Commission or Hearing Examiner, at the public hearing in this case only pre-filed prepared written testimony, in question and answer form and verified by the witness, and examination of witnesses on such pre-filed testimony shall be accepted, considered and received in evidence along with other relevant and otherwise admissible exhibits. Further, the questioning of a party sponsoring a witness shall be limited on direct examination to the authentication and verification of the witness' pre-filed written testimony and later to appropriate redirect examination. Any interested person may appear at the time of hearing and make a written or oral comment pursuant to NMAC without becoming an intervenor. Interested persons may also send written comments, which shall reference NMPRC Case No. 13-00040-UT, to the Commission at the mailing address set out below. All such comments will not be considered as evidence in this proceeding. All documents mailed to the Commission and its personnel shall be mailed to: New Mexico Public Regulation Commission, P.E.R.A.
