Joshua Woody collected as many eggs as his 4year-old hands could grab, until his basket toppled over. Luckily for him, an older boy saved his day just as other children tried to grab the colorful plastic orbs, filled with possible prizes. “One bigger kid stood up for him and said, ‘No these are his eggs!,” said his grandmother Judy Daniel. The mad dash for prizefilled goodies at the annual Easter Egg Hunt at the Spring River Park and Zoo Saturday began with police and fire sirens at exactly 10 a.m. and finished not more than a minute later See EGGS, Page A3

VATICAN CITY (AP) — The Shroud of Turin went on display for a special TV appearance Saturday amid new research disputing claims it’s a medieval fake and purporting to date the linen some say was Jesus’ burial cloth to around the time of his death. Pope Francis sent a special video message to the event in Turin’s cathedral, but made no claim that the image on the shroud of a man with wounds similar to those suffered by Christ was really that of Jesus. He called the cloth an “icon,” not a relic — an important distinction. “This image, impressed

upon the cloth, speaks to our heart and moves us to climb the hill of Calvary, to look upon the wood of the Cross, and to immerse ourselves in the eloquent silence of love,” he said. “This disfigured face resembles all those faces of men and women marred by a life which does not respect their dignity, by war and violence which af flict the weakest,” he said. “And yet, at the same time, the face in the Shroud conveys a great peace; this tortured body expresses a sovereign majesty.” Many experts stand by carbon-dating of scraps of

Local partners and sweet treat makers opened their new shop with a dance party Friday evening at the Roswell Mall. Shoppers jumped into to join a flash mob at Deliciously Irresistible. At the direction of DJ Louis Najar, they danced a “Harlem Shake,” a YouTube dance craze that lasts about 40 seconds. It starts when one person

begins dancing unnoticed by the others, followed by the rest of the group who join in dancing and shaking around the store. Hometown entrepreneurs Mandi Madrid and Becca Pardo create and sell fruit arrangements, gourmet cupcakes, candies, cakes and other edible arrangements. The house specialty is cheesecake-filled strawberries. Friday evening was a special opening. The store will be open from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. General manager of Roswell Mall Anjy Cooper joined the festivities Friday. “We’re really excited to have them here,” Cooper said. The first day went well, said Madrid and Pardo. “The community really came out and supported us,” Madrid said. “We let everybody know.” “We’re pretty happy here,” Pardo said. “Hopefully, though, we’re not going to be here long before we can expand.”

Pope Francis presides over trimmed Easter Vigil service

VATICAN CITY (AP) — Pope Francis celebrated a trimmed back Easter Vigil service Saturday after having reached out to Muslims and women during a Holy Week in which he began to put his mark on the Catholic Church. Francis processed into a darkened and silent St. Peter’s Basilica at the start of the service, in which the faithful recall the period between Christ’s crucifixion on Good Friday and resurrection on Easter Sunday. One of the most dramatic moments of the Easter Vigil service that usually follows — when the pope would share the light of his candle See POPE, Page A3

Business, labor get deal on worker program

WASHINGTON (AP) — Big business and labor have struck a deal on a new lowskilled worker program, removing the biggest hurdle to completion of sweeping immigration legislation allowing 11 million illegal immigrants eventual U.S. citizenship, labor and Senate officials said Saturday. The agreement was reached in a phone call late Friday night with AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka, U.S. Chamber of Commerce head Tom Donohue, and Democratic Sen. Chuck Schumer of New York, who’s been mediating the dispute. The deal resolves disagreements over wages for the new workers and which industries would be included. Those disputes had led talks to break down a week ago, throwing into doubt whether Schumer and

seven other senators crafting a comprehensive bipartisan immigration bill would be able to complete their work as planned. The deal must still be signed off on by the other senators working with Schumer, including Republicans John McCain of Arizona and Marco Rubio of Florida, but that’s expected to happen, according to a person with knowledge of the talks who spoke on condition of anonymity. With the agreement in place, the senators are expected to unveil their legislation the week of April 8. Their measure would secure the border, crack down on employers, improve legal immigration and create a 13-year pathway to citizenship for the millions of illegal immigrants already here. It’s a major second-term

priority of President Barack Obama’s and would usher in the most dramatic changes to the nation’s faltering immigration system in more than two decades. The AFL-CIO and the Chamber of Commerce, longtime antagonists over temporary worker programs, had been fighting over wages for tens of thousands of low-skilled workers who would be brought in under the new program to fill jobs in construction, hotels and resorts, nursing homes and restaurants, and other industries. Under the agreement, a new “W’’ visa program would go into effect beginning April 1, 2015, according to an AFL-CIO fact sheet. In year one of the program, 20,000 workers would be allowed in; in

year two, 35,000; in year three, 55,000; and in year four, 75,000. Ultimately the program would be capped at 200,000 workers a year, but the number of visas would fluctuate, depending on unemployment rates, job openings, employer demand and data collected by a new federal bureau pushed by the labor movement as an objective monitor of the market. Onethird of all visas in any year would go to businesses with under 25 workers. A “safety valve” would allow employers to exceed the cap if they can show need and pay premium wages, but any additional workers brought in would be subtracted from the following year’s cap. In a sign of the delicate and uncertain negotiations still ahead, Rubio sent a

access. Thirty-five homes were initially evacuated after Wednesday’s slide 50 miles north of Seattle. One home was destroyed, and four remained under evacuation orders Friday. More than a dozen homes remained inaccessible. The landslide displaced 200,000 cubic yards of earth, an equivalent of 40,000 dump truck loads. Spokesman Christopher Schwarzen said geologists continue to assess the slide’s stability and, once established, clean-up can begin. No damage estimates were available yet, and the NW Insurance Council has cautioned that standard homeowners and business insurance policies specifically exclude damage

caused by earth movement like a landslide. In a preliminary report, geologists from the state Department of Natural Resources said the slide area is part of a much larger landslide complex that may date back as far as 11,000 years — a legacy of the Puget Sound’s glacial past. Over night Thursday, there was very little movement detected from the slide. While the ground continued to move Thursday, geologists said the land will slowly try to stabilize itself. Less than a quarter of the homes have year-round residents. Most are summer cabins or weekend getaways and were unoccupied. Some are larger,

upscale properties and others are more modest. The house that was destroyed slid down a bluff, nearly into Puget Sound. Meanwhile, crews have begun laying a path for residents to access the homes blocked by debris that washed out the road. Authorities eventually hope to build a temporary access road, but that may take weeks. The landslide into Puget

Sound lifted the beach as much as 30 feet above the previous shoreline, the geologists said in a preliminary report Thursday.

— as usual. City of Roswell Recreation Leader Mary Beardsley, organizer of this year’s event, estimated some 1,500 people enjoyed the hunt. “It looks like we had a little more than last year,” Beardsley said. “The weather is nice and it’s just great out here.” Children ages 3 to 10 years old sat on the lawn of the Peppermint Playground area, after all eggs were found, pouring out their baskets and ripping open their eggs with the hope of finding a ticket for a special prize. The Sertoma Club of Roswell donated hundreds of dollars in prizes, including large bunny rabbits, bubbles and other Easterrelated gifts.

open to the public. The last time was in 2010 when more than 2 million people lined up to pray before it and thenPope Benedict XVI visited. The latest display coincided with Holy Saturday, when Catholics mark the period between Christ’s crucifixion on Good Friday and his resurrection on Easter Sunday. A few hundred people, many in wheelchairs, were invited inside the cathedral for the service, which was presided over by Turin’s archbishop.

with others until the entire basilica twinkled — was shortened this year as were some of the Old Testament readings. The Vatican has said these provisions were in keeping with Francis’ aim to not have his Masses go on too long. The Easter Vigil service under Benedict XVI would typically run nearly three hours. The new pope has made clear he prefers his Masses short and to the point: he was even caught checking his watch during his March 19 installation ceremony. Saturday was no different: The vigil ended just shy of 2.5 hours. A trimmed-back vigil — and one that started earlier than usual — was just one of the novelties of this Holy Week under an Argentine Jesuit pope who just two weeks ago stunned the world by emerging from the loggia of St. Peter’s Basilica after his election with a simple “Brothers and sisters, good evening.” In his homily Saturday, Francis kept his message simple and tied to the liturgical readings, recalling how Jesus’ disciples found his tomb empty a day after his death and were surprised and confused. “Our daily problems and

when the sirens sounded. He is the third generation to grab eggs at the zoo. His parents Gwen and Clay Woody remember the event as children growing up in Roswell. “We made it a tradition to come out every year,” Gwen Woody said. “It was a lot of fun. They used to give away bikes. (My husband) won a stuffed bunny.” “It was just a fun thing for the kids,” Daniel said. Christina Molina’s daughter was thrilled to find a prize ticket in one of her eggs. “They did a really good job,” Molina said. “She got a prize egg!” Marco Dominguez brought his two 3-year-old twins, Kayla and Mayleen, and his daughter Miliana, 6, out for the first time. “They were excited,” Dominguez said. “They were so happy.” Veronica Burrola said at first her son was a bit scared with all of the people around him. But he soon joined in the fun. He had a smile on his face as he opened up his eggs. audience; the first was in 1973 at the request of Pope Paul VI, the Vatican said.

The display also coincided with the release of a book based on new scientific tests on the shroud that researchers say date the cloth to the 1st century.

The research in “The Mystery of the Shroud,” by Giulio Fanti of the University of Padua and journalist Saverio Gaeta, is based on chemical and mechanical tests on fibers of material extracted for the carbon-dating research. An article with the findings is expected to be submitted for peerreview, news reports say. worries can wrap us up in ourselves, in sadness and bitter ness, and that is where death is,” he said. “Let the risen Jesus enter your life, welcome him as a friend, with trust: he is life!” He later baptized four men, part of the Easter Vigil ritual.

Just a few hours after the vigil ends, Francis on Sunday will celebrate Easter Mass and deliver his “Urbi et Orbi” speech, Latin for “To the city and the world.” Usually the pope also issues Easter greetings in dozens of languages. In his two weeks as pope, Francis’ discomfort with speaking in any language other than Italian has become apparent. He has even shied away from speaking Spanish when the occasion would call for it, though the Vatican has said he has done so to avoid discriminating against other languages by favoring his native tongue. Italian is the lingua franca of the Vatican and Francis has emphasized his role as bishop of Rome over that of pope of the universal church, making his use of Italian logical.

It’s not clear how Francis will handle the multilingual greetings today.

The third annual Easter Parade celebration offered contests for several entrants, including best-dressed adults and children, best bonnets and best-dressed pets. The parade, though it turned out to be short, was full of seasonal cheer as it wound its way around the courthouse. “We just wanted to bring them downtown for a simple family Easter to stroll on the courthouse lawn and have a music parade,” Seskey said. “You know, ‘In your Easter bonnet with all the frills upon it.’” Some 250 people came out to enjoy the afternoon, with temperatures reaching into the low 80 degrees. The parade started at 1 p.m., but the fun started much earlier. Children cheered as they raced to the finish line carrying eggs on spoons, trying not to drop them. Other activities included visiting with the Easter Bunny, face painting, a piñata, “I like playing the games out here,” Elle Christianson, 6, said. She stayed close to her mother and grandmother, who all wore handmade pink bonnets with decorative eggs and items sewn carefully on top. Denise Chistianson, Ella’s mother, and Susan, her grandmother, make a point of attending each year. Ella took home the prize for best child’s bonnet. “This is our third year in a row,” Denise Christianson said. She also said she spends time making all of the Easter bonnets her mother, daughter and she wore this year. The youngest of the three liked the games the most, she said. Susan, who took time off from work to come to the event, said she enjoyed watching her granddaughter participate in the events. “She’s been so excited about coming to play,” she said. MainStreet Roswell, an organization that is dedicated to encouraging and fostering the preservation of historic downtown, works with local gover nment, property

owners and merchants to rehabilitate and maintain buildings, while encouraging economic growth in the downtown area. The Easter Parade is one event that the organization hopes will encourage more people to enjoy their downtown, Seskey said. “This is just payback to the community,” she said. “There is no charge for this. People can walk around and have a nice fun time.” Evette and Edgar Romero brought their children Sophia, 2, and Yaire, 6. Evette Romero said she liked the atmosphere and being with her family. She enjoyed, “just being out here in the community,” she said. This year’s winners were: Christianson for best child’s Easter bonnet; Jeannee Hunter for best adult Easter bonnet; Zyon Stevenson for best dressed child; Howard and Nellie Becker for best dressed adults; Reese Hunter for best vintage bonnet; Phoebe and Jackson, and their owners Crystal Hester and Kendra Jones for best dressed pets; and Kale Hunter for the best push/pull float. The Dooley Family, which included Jacqueline, Scarlett, Victoria and Sophia, were clad in matching green checkered dresses with bright pink ribbons and bows, matching white shoes and pink tights. “They made us think of Easter,” Seskey said. “It reminded me of the vintage past. Even their brother had on a straw hat.” The best push/pull float, made by Kale Hunter, was a red wagon made into a basket with packing paper. A bunny sat in it with kale décor. Downtown merchants donated prizes, including gift cards by Once Again Consignments and Debbie’s Deals. Each winner was given a yard sign to post in their gardens, and a basket of goodies to go along with their prizes. Everyone who wanted to could walk in the parade, whether they were dressed in their Easter finery or not. “The weather couldn’t have been better,” said Juliana Halvorson, who organized the event. “It’s perfect.”

Seeking to save Peter Cottontail from extinction

AP Photo

New England cottontail.

UNDATED — The New England cottontail was once so common that Massachusetts author Thornton Burgess adapted one named Peter for the children’s stories he penned a century ago. But the critter that inspired “The Adventures of Peter Cottontail” and the enduring song that came later faces an uncertain future. Its natural habitat is disappearing, and without intervention, it could be unhappy trails for the once-bountiful bunny. Conservationists are hoping a new program to restore shrub lands across the Northeast and captive breeding efforts will help ensure the New England cottontail sticks around for many Easters to come. “We’re making headway, putting habitat on the ground in some really key places,” said Anthony Tur, an endangered species specialist for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. “It’s encouraging.” New England cottontails were abundant a century ago, thriving in an environment of shrubs, saplings, weeds and vines known as young forest. But in an uncommon turn of events, it is declining human activity to blame for its lost habitat — not urban sprawl. As neglected agricultural lands reverted back to forest and those forests matured, the population of New England cottontails thinned. More than 80 percent of their habitat disappeared over the past 50 years, according to the nonprofit Wildlife Management Institute. And now conservationists are trying to prevent the New England cottontail from appearing on the endangered species list, a designation that would require a more urgent —

and costly — response that could restrict land use and hunting. The Fish and Wildlife Service and the National Resources Conservation Service are working with landowners and zoos to restore natural habitat and use captive breeding to rebuild the population. The gover nment has been conducting habitat management and restoration projects for several years in collaboration with private landowners, land trusts and a few Native American tribes as they try to bring back the New England cottontail. The New England cottontail is the only rabbit species native to the region east of the Hudson River. And while it has struggled to deal with the changing landscape, a slightly larger cousin has thrived. Imported to the region for hunting in the early 20th century, the Eastern cottontail has larger eyes that have enabled it to avoid predators better. It multiplied steadily and is now the dominant species in the Northeast, often popping up on roadsides and in gardens. For conservationists, protecting the New England cottontail from extinction is worthy in and of itself. But habitat restoration also benefits the dozens of other species that thrive in shrub lands, including songbirds, snakes, deer and turkey. The Roger Williams Park Zoo in Rhode Island began breeding the New England cottontail in captivity two years ago. Officials there have already released 38 young rabbits tagged with radio collars into restored habitats in Rhode Island and New Hampshire. They expect to release 100 more later this year. “It’s a conservation priority in our region,” said Lou Perrotti, director of conservation programs at the zoo, “so we’re happy to be a part of it and will remain committed.” He said the New England cottontail had not previously been bred in captivity, so his staf f is “writing the book on husbandry and of the reproduction species.” At a certain point, Perrotti said, the success of conservation ef forts comes down to the creatures themselves.

Always do this in remembrance of me A4 Sunday, March 31, 2013

Everyone reading this has had some common experiences. We grew and developed in our mother’s womb. We entered this world as a newborn child. During the early years of our lives we were entirely dependent on others. Common experiences - no exceptions. We will all have a common experience in the future. When our days are through, our human life will leave our human body. The body we leave behind will be the responsibility of others to take care of. Our body will be disposed of in some form or fashion. That is just the physical world we live in. In the minds and hearts of those who outlive us, we will leave behind memories. Our daily lives involve a series of giving and taking. What we receive in this world dies with us, what we give lives on after we are gone. What will live on after your life is gone? What will others think of when they remember you? As we celebrate Easter Sunday I think of events that occurred almost 2000 years ago in the final days of Jesus’ life. I think of Jesus and the disciples having their last supper together. I wonder what it would have been like to have been one of the disciples sitting there



that evening being told by Jesus that he was in his final days. What were they feeling? I’ll bet they were scared and afraid of what their future held. With the disciples reclined at the table, Jesus said in John 13:33, “My children, I will be with you only a little longer.” In verses 36 and 37 Simon Peter asked, “Lord, where are you going?” Jesus replied, “Where I am going, you cannot follow now, but you will follow later.” Peter asked, “Lord, why can’t I follow you now?” Thomas expressed his puzzlement in John 14:5 when he asked, “Lord, we don’t know where you are going, so how can we know the way?” I wonder what it was like to hear such words from Jesus that evening. In their final evening together the apostles didn’t grasp what Jesus was telling them. Yet even if the disciples did understand what was about to happen, how do you say goodbye to a friend? How do you say goodbye to one who, through a series of common experiences, has become family? In Luke 22:17-19 we are told about the final evening. “After taking the cup, Jesus gave thanks and said, ‘Take this and divide it among



you. For I tell you I will not drink again of the fruit of the vine until the kingdom of God comes.’ And he took the bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to them saying, ‘This is my body given for you; do this in remembrance of me.’” Jesus was asking his closest followers to remember him. He was asking them to remember him in all that they would do. The message Jesus left with the disciples is the message he leaves for each of us today. There is a beautiful song by Christian musician Mark Schultz that does an excellent job of summarizing Christ’s message. To me it is one of the most beautiful songs ever written. I get emotional each time I hear the song. It is titled “Remember Me.”

Roswell Daily Record

If I could play it for you right now or show you a video that is available on You Tube, I would do so and today’s message would be more meaningful. But for purposes of this column I can only print the words. The song is written from Christ’s perspective: “Remember me in a Bible cracked and faded by the years. Remember me in a sanctuary filled with silent prayer. And age to age and heart to heart, bound by grace and peace, child of wonder, child of God, I’ve remembered you. Remember me.” “Remember me when the color of the sunset fills the sky. Remember me when you pray and tears of joy fall from your eyes...I’ve remembered you. Remember me.” “Remember me when the children leave their Sunday school with smiles. Remember me when they’re old enough to teach, old enough to preach, old enough to leave. And age to age and heart to heart, bound by grace and peace, child of wonder, child of God, I’ve remembered you. Remember me.” This time of the year I think of a child of God carried in his mother’s womb, entering this world as a newborn, and cared for as a young child by Mary and Joseph. He was

born for me. He lived his life for me. He gave his life for me. As he hung on the cross, crucified as if a criminal, through his unbearable pain, he remembered me. My challenge to you today is to remember what happened in the final days of Christ’s life. Remember his message to his disciples. Remember his instructions on the final evening when he told those closest to him that he was leaving. Remember his breaking bread and saying, “This is my body given for you; do this in remembrance of me.” We should remember Christ’s acts in all we do the year round. We should especially remember His instructions as we celebrate Christ’s death and resurrection this Easter season. Remember Him. As He breathed the final breaths of His human life hanging high on a cross, with love in His heart, He remembered you. Just a thought...

For every job in farming, the industry creates two to three nonfarming jobs. It’s an industry that should thrive in America, where is has been the backbone of our successes. Yet, Obamacare adds more burdens on farmers, who already contend with onerous state and federal requirements that hamper production and harvesting. Specifically, H2A visa rules and E-Verify hiring requirements, coupled with a shortage of agricultural workers, makes farming in the United States a difficult endeavor for small operators. “There’s nothing affordable about the Affordable Care Act,” Tom Nassif said to us; he’s president and CEO of Western Growers, an advocacy group representing area and regional family farmers in Arizona and California. Despite union leaders’ aggressive push for a federal takeover of health care, it turns out that the Affordable Care Act could harm the very people it supposedly aimed to help: workers. Major unions, including the AFL-CIO and the Teamsters, wanted to keep current health plans and receive government subsidies to cover costs imposed by the Affordable Care Act. Some unions — along with Big Labor — were exempted from the law through temporary waivers from the Obama administration. But, for the most part, the farming community is not off the hook. “A lot of our members will opt out,” Nassif predicted. “They will choose to pay the penalty [for not providing health insurance] because it’s so much lower.” Obamacare requires businesses with 50 or more employees, averaging at least 30 hours per week, to provide health coverage. Well before Jan. 1, 2014, farmers will need to decide whether it makes sense to drop health coverage, pay the penalty and look at providing supplemental pay for workers to get their own insurance. Or, they could look at cutting employee hours to avoid the mandate but will need to attract employees without offering health insurance — in an environment when there already is a shortage of workers. In the event farmers drop health insurance, workers who lack proper documents could elect to go to hospital emergency rooms and walk-in clinics. This predictably would create higher costs for taxpayers and poorer outcomes for ill or injured workers. Western Growers, which has been advising its members on the expected impact of Obamacare, also worries about future regulations on top of the new health care legislation. “You don’t add to it,” Dave Puglia, senior vice president of Western Growers, recommended, noting current burdens on the farming community.

Immigrant scientists have families, too As the debate over immigration reform reaches a climax, a troubling idea seems to be gaining traction. It is that annual limits on new visas should be severely restricted, and that America must choose between two groups of newcomers: high-tech workers with advanced degrees or family members of existing residents. This is a false and foolish choice that Congress should


reject. Immigrants are good for this country and always have been. We should want more of them, not fewer. As President Obama said recently at a White House naturalization ceremony: “Immigration makes us stronger. It keeps us vibrant. It keeps us hungry. It keeps us prosperous.” There’s widespread agreement that current policy is incredibly stupid because it prevents many foreign-born

graduate students from staying and creating here. But if you increase the number of visas for these job creators, goes the argument, you have to cut back somewhere else. The main target: the parents and siblings of legal residents who qualify for visas under family reunification provisions. For mer Florida Gov. Jeb Bush advocated this course in his recent book, “Immigration

Wars,” and it’s been echoed by a number of conservative Republicans. “If we want to increase the number of workbased immigrants without substantially increasing the overall number of immigrants, we must reduce family-based immigration,” he wrote. From a policy perspective, Bush’s argument makes no

DEAR DOCTOR K: I’ve seen many product labels that claim to boost immunity. Could they really help? Or should I be skeptical? DEAR READER: Your immune system does a remarkable job of protecting you from bacteria, viruses and other microbes that can cause disease, suffering, even death. So it seems logical to want to give your immune system a boost. But the concept of boosting immunity actually makes little sense scientifically. In fact, boosting your immune response is not necessarily a good thing. An overactive immune response is seen in major autoimmune diseases, such as Type 1 diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis and lupus. In autoimmune diseases, the overactive immune system starts attacking the body instead of defending it. Allergies are another example of an immune system that’s overactive. A harmless little pollen gets into your nose, for example, and the immune

system attacks the pollen as if it’s at war. Even if it were a good thing, attempting to boost the immune system is especially complicated. That’s because the immune system is precisely that — a system, not a single entity. To function well, the immune system requires balance and harmony. Think of it as an army: The actions of the soldiers need to be coordinated by the generals, who determine when and where to attack, as well as when to stop attacking. There is still much that researchers don’t know about the workings and interconnectedness of the immune response. We’ve got to understand how the immune system works better than we currently do to achieve the goal of boosting it at just the right time and in the right part of the body. For example, the immune system uses many different kinds of cells, which respond to different microbes in different ways. So which cells should you boost, and


to what number? So far, no one knows how many or what kinds of cells the immune system needs to function at its best. Yet many food products and packaged drinks are labeled as “supporting immunity,” “boosting immunity” or providing a “defense” against germs. Most of these products just contain vitamins and minerals that people already get as part of a normal, healthy diet. My colleague Dr. Michael Starnbach, a

professor of microbiology and medical genetics at Harvard Medical School, feels strongly that when it comes to products that claim to boost immunity, there’s no truth in advertising. As he says, there’s simply no evidence that consuming these products will translate into better immune function. And without that evidence, the claims on food and drink packaging are just a marketing ploy — and one that may lead us to consume more calories than we need. It’s not silly to want to find a way to help the immune system do a better job of defending us from foreign microbes, and I hope that research can teach us how to do this. However, we just don’t have enough information yet to make this a reality. (Dr. Komaroff is a physician and professor at Harvard Medical School.

Roswell Daily Record


HB 641

Dear Editor: House Bill 641 amended, passed the New Mexico House and Senate at the last minute of the Legislative Session and now is on the Governor’s desk. In an attempt to create a “business friendly” state, the corporate tax rate was reduced. However, the offset was a reduction of funding to the cities and towns. Several years ago when the state was flush with cash, the gross receipts tax was taken off food and medical services. The promise was made by our state government leadership that the cities and towns would still receive the same amount of money as though the tax was paid. The term was called “hold harmless.” Roswell has been receiving this money. Now that state legislature is in need of money, they have reneged on their promise and are taking the money away from the cities and towns instead of having the political fortitude to reinstall the tax. Governor Martinez has said on more than one occasion that she would veto any bill that would do away with “hold harmless.” It now appears that she will sign the bill. The cost to the City of Roswell is estimated at $3.4 million per year, or about 11 percent of our gross receipts tax. Starting in two years, July 2015, the reduction will be phased over fifteen years which is about 6 percent - 7 percent per year. A generous provision in the bill states that cities and towns can implement their own tax of an additional 3⁄8 percent. (.0375) The City Council gets to be the “bad guys.”The state legislature and governor can say “we didn’t raise taxes.” The other suggestion that has been reported was that cities and towns could always “cut expenses.” It is noted that the state cut their expenses by raising their budget by 4.4 percent. The Roswell city budget is flat this year. As the old saying goes in politics, “a promise is not a commitment.”Our citizens are the victims. With this kind of leadership, little wonder that New Mexico sits at the bottom of all states for economic development. Food for thought. Sincerely, Steve Henderson Roswell City Councilor – Finance Chair

A letter in the March 7 Record that championed evolution made some fundamental mistakes. For a start, the theory of evolution cannot be called natural science. It cannot be verified through repeatable experiments. We cannot observe what happened “millions of years ago.” Furthermore, it violates the second law of thermodynamics. We expect to see a system go from more order to less order, unless there is an ordering mechanism. This should be obvious to those who are “following the evidence wherever it leads.”

One of the pillars of natural science is that all “facts” are subject to scrutiny and revision. Evolution, though it is not testable, seems to be a sacred cow. We may question how evolution took place, but to say it is not a fact is to risk one’s reputation. The evolutionary model would predict abundant, finely graded, intermediate fossils between major classifications of organisms. They simply do not exist. (Stephen Jay Gould, Professor of Geology and Paleontology, Harvard University, "Is a New and General Theory of Evolution Emerging?" Paleobiology, vol. 6(1), January 1980, p. 127. The telomere code in the middle of human chromosome 2 appears to be a gene splice. When did this take place? For all we really know, it was always there. Other telomere strands have been found in the middle of human chromosomes. (, This makes our alleged relationship with chimpanzees less convincing. We must ask an embarrassing question about a tyrannosaur bone found to have blood, DNA, and soft tissue inside. How could that material remain for 60 million years? Dare we suggest that those bones are only a few thousand years old? (Sweitzer. M, Science 207, 25 March 2005 pp 1952-1955). Helium is a product of decaying uranium and thorium. How could rocks thought to be over a billion years old still have helium? It should all have leaked out by now. Present measurements suggest those rocks could be less than 10,000 years old. (Humphreys, D.R. Creation Research Quarterly 41 pp 1-16 June 2004). Radiometric dating is based on three questionable assumptions. 1) The half-life of radioactive materials has always been constant. 2) There was only parent material and no daughter material when the rock was formed. 3) Nothing has leached into or out of the sample. Hawaiian lava flows known to be less than 200 years old have been dated by potassium-argon up to three billion years old. (Hulse, Scott, The Collapse of Evolution, Baker Books 1997, pp64-66). As for the mutations of viruses, we must first understand that many authorities question if viruses are living organisms. Undisputed living organisms have DNA and RNA. Viruses have only one or the other. They do not consume food or produce food by photosynthesis. They replicate only by entering a host cell and stealing genetic material. Besides, no one has observed a virus producing a nonvirus. Viruses do not prove macroevolution. (, ss/viruses.htm). We need to hear where that writer got those “…very lucid accounts of how the self-replicating chemistry of life arises through perfectly natural processes and evolves through natural selection.” Did he mean the discredited Miller -Urey experiments? Those experiments assumed an atmosphere of methane, hydrogen, ammonia, and water. Geology shows no evidence of such an atmosphere at any time. Incidentally, natural selection cannot create new life forms. It can only destroy existing organisms. It might be useful to have a second pair of hands, but if the genes do not appear, it will never happen. It puzzles me that someone who signs his name with “Ph.D.” does not give references for his sources. Russell A. Scott Roswell

sense. Both groups promote core Republican values. “Work-based immigrants” energize entrepreneurship and economic growth. Siblings and parents nurture “family values.” Why choose between them? The answer is politics. Republicans worry that expanding immigration will benefit the Democrats, and they’re probably right. But if it keeps expressing hostility to these newcomers, the GOP will only inflict more damage on its prospects. If Republicans want a bigger share of the immigrant vote, they have to make immigrants feel more welcome. Keeping them out is a short-term and shortsighted solution. But politics is not the main point here. Expanding immigration and encouraging family reunification are in our deepest national interest. Preventing high-tech scientists from bringing their families here is selfdefeating and counterproductive. A recent letter from six Democratic senators made this point: “Weakening the family immigration system will make it harder for employers to attract talented workers from abroad. Those foreign-born scientists and engineers have families, too.” Immigrants contribute to economic growth in many ways, not just by founding high-flying companies like Google and Intel. Many ethnic communities have kinship-based savings networks that provide credit for small business startups. Cripple those networks by restricting family reunification, and the credit dries up. Families contribute sweat equity as well. That Chinese laundry or Greek diner cannot survive, at least at first, without relatives who work for low pay and sleep in the back. When Steve’s grandfather Abe Rogow arrived from Russia almost 100 years ago, he got his start from a distant cousin who ran a small stand selling cheap clothes in a New Jersey amusement park. That story repeats itself today. As ethnic communities grow, they provide customers and clients for a range of services — lawyers and undertakers, real estate brokers and insurance agents. In our home county in suburban Maryland, one-third of the residents are foreign-born. A huge Chinese grocery store, the Great Wall, now provides familiar food for immigrant families and employment for local youths, including Hispanics. “You run into people you know, it’s nice to speak Chinese and you don’t have to explain anything in English,” says Lily Qi, a native of Shanghai. “I was very impressed with a young Latino guy over at the meat counter — he spoke perfect Chinese to me. I was shocked!” Immigrant families are so useful that older cities such as Cleveland and Philadelphia are recruiting them to fill neighborhoods once home to Irish, Italian and Polish communities. More than 70,000 Bosnians have moved to St. Louis, for example. The mayor of Baltimore, Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, says candidly, “I don’t really think of people as legal or illegal. Are you productive or not productive? That’s really my focus.” Then there’s the “care economy,” immigrant women who contribute unpaid services, such as baby-sitting, that enable other family members to spend long hours in new businesses or demanding jobs. Many of these women also work in the service sector, especially health care. If you took every foreign-born woman out of every hospital in America, most would collapse overnight. Excellent scientists and extended families contribute to the vitality of this country. We need them all — and more. (Steve and Cokie Roberts can be contacted by email at

Carlsbad Caverns a favorite vacation destination

CARLSBAD—Carlsbad Caverns National Park has been named the third most-favorite family destination in a national poll by FamilyFun, a family travel magazine and a popular source for travel recommendations and family activities. FamilyFun conducted an extensive nationwide survey of parents with children 3 to 12, asking them to rate popular vacation destinations for affordability, accessibility and fun. Carlsbad Caverns placed third in “Overall Favorite Family Destinations� with the top two spots going to Yellowstone National Park and

Acadia National Park. All but one of the top 10 selections are national parks indicating that vacationers enjoy choosing destinations that are set aside for the purpose of natural, historic and cultural preservation. “It certainly seems fitting that families would rate national parks as 9 out of the top 10 fun vacation destinations,� Carlsbad Caverns National Park Superintendent John Benjamin said. “We are thrilled by being chosen and we agree that the park of fers quality experiences that fit the criteria for family fun to the nth degree. No matter what age your

family members are, we have something for everyone and we offer adventures in a very safe environment.� Humorist Will Rogers called Carlsbad the “Grand Canyon with a roof on it.� FamilyFun voters say “It’s simply grand.� The park, located in the Guadalupe Mountains at the northern reaches of the Chihuahuan desert, features some of the largest and deepest limestone chambers anywhere on earth. Top 10 overall favorite family destinations:

NMMI announces National Honor Society inductees ROSWELL—The New Mexico Military Institute chapter of the National Honor Society held its annual induction of new members March 19 at 7 p.m. at the NMMI Alumni Memorial Chapel. Maj. Kalith Smith, deputy director of the Toles Learning Resource Center was the guest speaker. Brig. Gen. Douglas Murray, USAF retired, dean of Academics, gave the closing remarks. Thirty-three cadets from the 3rd (senior) and 4th (junior) classes and were selected for membership by the faculty council. Selection for membership was based on the National Honor Society four core virtues of Scholarship, Character, Service and Leadership. Cadets of the 3rd and 4th classes who met the 3.5 grade point average scholastic requirement were invited to apply for

membership in February. Eligible cadets completed the application process and were then evaluated based on the remaining virtues of character, service and leadership by the faculty council. Additionally, Maj. Billy Gallagher, associate professor of history, was selected by the high school cadets to receive the coveted "Golden Apple" as the outstanding teacher of the year at the high school level. A reception for all inducted members was held following the ceremony in J. Ross Thomas Hall.

ESGR announces nominations for employer support award ARLINGTON, Va.—Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve, a Department of operational committee, Defense announced 26 New Mexico Guard and Reserve members nominated their employers for the 2013 Secretary of Defense Employer Support Freedom Award. The agency received 2,899 nominations nationwide. The Freedom Award is the Department of Defense’s highest recognition for employers supporting employees serving in the Guard and Reserve. Up to 15 award recipients will be announced this summer and honored in Washington, D.C., later this year at the 18th annual Freedom Award ceremony. Past award recipients have met with senior leaders of the White House and Department of Defense as part of the award recognition. This year, New Mexico Military Institute was nominated for the Freedom Award. Guard and Reserve Service members, or family members acting on their behalf, nominated their civilian employers for the Freedom Award during the 12-week nomination season that closed in January. Even with recent draw downs in Afghanistan, ongoing national security demands and historic humanitarian relief missions have continued to call service members away from their civilian lives. Supportive employers are critical to helping restore stability and peace of mind for

these Citizen Warriors and their loved ones.

"Every year, these nominations demonstrate the strength of our employers’ commitment to supporting our Guardsmen and Reservists," said ESGR National Chair James G. Rebholz. "We applaud all the National Guard and Reserve Service members who took the time to tell the DoD why their employers are exceptional, and we are grateful to the 2013 nominees for providing our Citizen Warriors with the assistance and encouragement they rely on while answering the call to duty."

Nearly one-half of the U.S. military is comprised of Guard and Reserve members. While most Guard and Reserve employers proudly support their military employees, Freedom Award recipients are recognized for going to extraordinary lengths for their Guardsmen and Reservists. Nationwide, this year’s nominees represent diverse industries including airlines, grocery store chains, national retail brands and IT companies, as well as small businesses, and state and local governments. A list of nominations from all 50 states, Guam-CNMI, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands and the District of Columbia are available at Semifinalists for the 2013 Freedom Award will be announced later this spring.

SANTA FE—New Mexico Film Of fice director Nick Maniatis announced today the production of the NBC / Universal Television pilot, “The Sixth Gun,� starring Laura Ramsey (The Ruins), W. Earl Brown (Deadwood), Graham McTavish (The Hobbit) and Aldls Hodge (Leverage). Production will begin filming in mid-March to early April in Santa Fe, Galisteo, Las Cienega, Abiquiu and the surrounding areas. The production will employ at least 100 New Mexico crewmembers, 20 New Mexico principal actors and over 400 New Mexico background talent. Produced by Ron Schmidt (Sin City), coproduced by Santa Fe resident Tony Mark (The Hurt Locker), “The Sixth Gun� is exec-

dents with intellectual immersion, academic focus, and unique freedom to shed the confines of the traditional classroom to study off-campus, pursue research, or accept an inter nship-all without missing out on other classes. Founded in 1853, the college's entire hilltop campus is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. You can find out more at

utive-produced by Carlton Cuse (Lost) and Eric Gitter (Scott Pilgrim vs. The World), co-executive-produced by writer R yan Condal and directed by Jeffrey Reiner (Friday Night Lights), who also serves as an executive producer.

“The Sixth Gun� is the story of six mythical guns in the Old West. When the Sixth Gun, the most powerful and dangerous of the group, resurfaces in the hands of an innocent girl named Becky Montcrief, dark forces reawaken. Vile men thought long dead set their sights on retrieving the gun and killing Becky. Only Drake Sinclair, a self-serving gunfighter, stands in evil’s way.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — A federal judge says actress Angelina Jolie didn’t steal the story for her movie “In the Land of Blood and Honey� from a Croatian author. City News Service reports Friday’s tentative ruling in Los Angeles will throw out the suit accusing Jolie of copyright infringement. In 2011, author James Braddock sued Jolie and the film company that made the film, saying it was partly based on his book “The Soul Shattering.� U.S. District Judge Dolly M. Gee wrote in a tentative ruling that the plots, characters and themes in the two works were not “substantially� similar, though both centered on war romances. Jolie wrote, directed and co-produced the film. Braddock has been ordered to tell the court why his complaint should not be dismissed with prejudice.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Steve Alford was hired as UCLA basketball coach on Saturday, spurning New Mexico days after he agreed to a new 10-year deal with the Lobos for a chance to run what he called “the premier basketball program in the country.” The Bruins are bringing in someone who shares the same Indiana roots as John Wooden, who led UCLA to a record 10 national championships, including seven in a row, before retiring in 1975. Alford learned about Wooden as a first-grader in Martinsville, Ind., where his father, Sam, coached the high school basketball team at Wooden’s alma mater. “Ever since then there was a draw to find out more about him,” Alford said on a teleconference. “I know my first steps into Pauley I will really feel that.” Alford agreed to a seven-year deal worth $18.2 million, with a yearly salary of $2.6 million and a $200,000 signing bonus, according to UCLA athletic director Dan Guerrero.

Alford will be introduced in Westwood on Tuesday. “This is truly a leap of faith,” he said. Guerrero said UCLA reached out to Alford first, not knowing whether he would be interested in the Bruins. Once he confirmed he was, the details were finalized early Saturday, Guerrero said. “It was not an easy decision because I was extremely happy,” Alford said. “I was about as happy as I can be. “When I kept thinking about things, it still came back to UCLA.

NMMI takes 2nd straight Colt Classic KEVIN J. KELLER RECORD SPORTS EDITOR

NMMI won the Colt Classic five years in a row from 2001-05, but couldn’t find a way to win it again until last year. The Colts repeated on Saturday, beating Texico 12-0 in five innings in the championship game at NMMI Ballpark. “It’s great,” Colt coach Charlie Ward said about how it felt to win the title. “These boys played three consistent games in a row and that’s how you become a champion in a tournament.” This game was decided in the third inning. NMMI scored once in the second and led 1-0 going to its half of the third. Nearly an hour later, NMMI had an insurmountable advantage. The short description of the inning went as follows: — 15 batters; nine runs; nine walks; See NMMI, Page B4

Gateway Chr. falls to Capitan in consolation finals LAWRENCE FOSTER RECORD ASST. SPORTS EDITOR

There are only so many proverbial bullets one can dodge before eventually you get hit. In the first two innings of its game against Capitan on Saturday in the fifth-place game at the Colt Classic, Gateway Christian got into trouble,

but escaped by allowing just two runs. The third “shot” landed for the Tigers, though, as they plated three runs in the third inning and exploded for five more in the fourth in a 10-2, five-inning victory over the Warriors. Gateway coach Rick Rapp said that Capitan just always seemed to have runners on base.

“Yeah, I think it seemed like they had men on base every inning,” he said. “Not just on base, but in the scoring position. We did a pretty good job the first two innings keeping the damage to a minimum, but then in the (third and fourth) innings, they got scored. We battled and with our See BULLETS, Page B4

DEXTER — Jal scored at least one run in each inning and cruised to a 17-1 four-inning victory over Dexter in the seventh-place game of the Lindsey Callaway Tournament on Saturday. The Panthers scored three in the first, one in the second, eight in the third and five in the fourth en route to the win. “Even though we’re having a rough time, (the girls) are staying encouraged,” said Demon coach Chanda Crandall after the game. “They are still believing in themselves and, as a coach, I couldn’t be prouder of them. “I feel like we are improving every game. Not that every game is perfect, but we are climbing the ladder.” Haley Norris had the lone hit and scored the lone run for the Demons. The senior singled in the fourth, stole second and third and scored on a passed ball. She also had a stolen base in the first after reaching on an error. Ana Flores took the loss for Dexter (0-7) after allowing nine runs on seven hits in 2 1/3 innings.

Syracuse on to Final Four, beats Marquette 55-39

WASHINGTON (AP) — When played to perfection, there’s nothing quite like Syracuse’s aggressive, halfcourt 2-3 zone defense. It’s 40 minutes of trapping and shot-challenging, of closing off angles, of trusting teammates. “We showed,” senior guard Brendan Triche said, “that defense wins games.” Yes, the Orange D certainly does. With a second suffocating performance at the East Regional, No. 4-seeded Syracuse shut down No. 3 Marquette 55-39 Saturday to earn coach Jim Boeheim his fourth trip to the Final Four — and first since a freshman named Carmelo Anthony

helped win the 2003 NCAA championship. “A tremendous, tremendous defensive effort,” Boeheim said. Fittingly, a matchup between schools from the soon-to-break-apart, roughand-tumble Big East became quite a struggle on the offensive end. Syracuse (30-9) was led by senior forward James Southerland’s 16 points. Michael Carter Williams, a 6-foot-6 guard who is out front in the zone, was named the regional’s top player after accounting for 12 points, eight rebounds, six assists, five steals and only one turnover Saturday. Marquette (26-9) hadn’t scored fewer than 47 points

all season — and, indeed, put up 74 in a victory over Syracuse on Feb. 25. But this time, Marquette kept turning the ball over, seeing its shots blocked or just plain missing. The Golden Eagles’ 39 points were a record low for a team in an NCAA tournament regional final since the shot clock was introduced in 1986. “They beat us from start to finish. We collectively tried everything we knew to try,” Marquette coach Buzz Williams said. “It is the zone, and it is the players in the zone.” Much like what happened Thursday in the regional semifinals, when Syracuse knocked off top-seeded Indiana by limiting it to a season-low output, too. “I don’t think we’ve played as good defensively as these last two games,” Triche said. “We held some good teams down.” All told, Marquette made only 12 of 53 shots — 23 percent — and was 3 for 24 on 3-pointers. Vander Blue, who carried Marquette to the round of eight, was held to 14 points on 3-for-15 shooting. “They cover ground really good. You’ve got to get the ball in the middle, you’ve got to play inside out, you’ve got to get to the free-throw line and wear them down with the 3-pointer when you can,” Blue said. “They’re really good at what they do in that zone.” Consider these numbers through four games in the tournament: Syracuse is averaging 6.5 blocks and 10.8 steals, while forcing opponents into 29 percent shooting, including 15 percent on 3-pointers. “We couldn’t get one to

drop in from up close,” said Marquette’s Jamil Wilson, who was 0 for 5 on 3-pointers, 1 for 9 overall. “We couldn’t get one to drop in from outside.” The next team to try to solve that defense will be the winner of Sunday’s South Regional final between Florida and Michigan. Syracuse is 3-0 in national semifinal games under Boeheim. And to think: Exactly three weeks ago, in this very same building, Syracuse wrapped up its final Big East regular -season schedule before heading to the Atlantic Coast Conference with a bad-as-can-be performance in a lopsided loss

to Georgetown. Syracuse’s 39 points that day were the Orange’s tiniest total in a half-century. That was Syracuse’s fourth loss in a span of five games, a stumbling way to head into tournament play. That night, Boeheim forgot to adjust his alarm clock to account for daylight saving time, and so showed up late for a pre-practice coaches’ meeting. His players, turned out, had organized their own session without supervision, starting the work it would take to get going in the right direction. “I watched them for a few minutes and it was really a good thing. I thought our

practices were really good after that,” Boeheim said. “You can turn things around in this game.” Since then, Syracuse has won seven of eight. “When you bounce back like that, that says a lot about your kids, your team and your character,” Boeheim said. “This is a heck of a bounce back.” And the secret to success? Defense, naturally. “We got the right personnel for each key position,” C.J. Fair said. “We got big long guards, we got big long forwards that can cover ground and our centers do a good job holding down the inside.”

HUMBLE, Texas (AP) — Seven players within four shots of the lead at the Houston Open have never won on the PGA Tour. Twelve of them still aren’t in the Masters. One of them includes a journeyman who had to qualify Monday just to get a tee time at Redstone Golf Club. In a tournament loaded with so many possibilities, one of the big surprises is a major champion. Stewart Cink has not been heard from very much since that summer day at Turnberry in 2009 when he beat Tom Watson to win the British Open. His highest finish since then was third, and that was in the four man field at the PGA Grand Slam of Golf. In 81 starts since becoming a major champion, he has missed the cut 30 percent of the time. He has plunged to No. 272 in the world ranking. Cink finished off another solid round Saturday by saving par form the bunker on the 18th hole for a 4under 68, giving him a share of the lead with Bill Haas. “Tomorrow is a great learning opportunity for me to get out there and be nervous and perform and try to stay in the moment and let it happen,” Cink said. “I can’t wait.” Indeed, there will be a sense of urgency in this tournament. Haas, the co-leader after 36 holes at Bay Hill last week, made seven birdies over his last 13 holes for a 67 and joined Cink at 11under 205. Now comes the hard part, 20 players separated by four shots on a course where birdies are available, but the slightest miss can prove costly. “Tomorrow you’re going to have to play very well,” Haas said. “You can’t just hang on and hope everybody else will fall back.” Steve Wheatcroft, who only got into this tournament through a Monday qualifier, got off to a good start and fell back with an embarrassing finish. Wheat-

croft was tied for the lead when he shanked a shot from the greenside bunker on the 18th, the ball coming out at a 45-degree angle, over the green and almost into the gallery. He made a 15-foot putt to salvage bogey for a 72. Wheatcroft still was only one shot out of the lead, along with Ben Crane (67), D.A. Points (71) and Jason Kokrak (71). “If you don’t catch it perfectly, it runs across the green into the water,” Wheatcroft said about his bunker shot. “I opened the club face just trying to hit a high soft one and obviously I missed most of the club face.” Nine players were only two shots behind, a group that included former British Open champion Louis Oosthuizen (65), former world No. 1 Lee Westwood (67), former PGA champion Keegan Bradley (67) two-time major champion Angel Cabrera (69) and Henrik Stenson (68), who is one round away from playing his way into the Masters through being top 50 in the world. Phil Mickelson finished his round of 67 before the leaders teed off, and he closed with a wedge into 6 feet for birdie. He wound up five shots out of the lead, still within range of trying to add another win before heading to Augusta for the Masters. “I feel like I’ve got a low round in me tomorrow,”

Mickelson said before leaving to meet with former president George H.W. Bush, who attended the tournament Saturday. Rory McIlroy had a chance to join the mix. Swinging more freely, the world’s No. 2 player was poised to reach 6 under for the tournament with a superb bunker shot to 5 feet for birdie on the 13th hole. He missed the putt, and then missed the 3-footer he had left and wound up with a bogey. McIlroy short-sided himself on the next hole for bogey, and dropped another shot on the 18th with a tee shot into the water. He had to settle for a 71 and was at 214, nine shots behind. “It’s the best I’ve hit it on the golf course this week,” McIlroy said. Wheatcroft and Kokrak are among seven players within four shots of the lead who have never won on the PGA Tour, and Wheatcroft still has high hopes of winning to get a two-year exemption in the big leagues. He would be the first Monday qualifier to win since Arjun Atwal in August 2010 at the Wyndham Championship. He would be the ultimate long shot, especially after the tweet he posted upon learning McIlroy had signed up for the Texas Open next week. Wheatcroft wanted everyone to know he signed up for the Texas Open qualifier on Monday, though a top-10 would get him into the field at San Antonio.

Wichita State upsets OSU 2 tied for lead in Houston Open 70-66 for Final Four trip LOS ANGELES (AP) — Cleanthony Early kept stealing glances down at the hat in his hands while he waited for his turn to climb the stepladder, scissors in hand. The Wichita State forward seemed stunned at the words embroidered on his brand new ballcap: “Final Four Atlanta.” “It’s crazy. I still can’t believe we’re here,” Early said. “You try to expect it, but you expect a lot of things that don’t happen. This really happened.” Believe it. Wichita State is going to Atlanta, and these Shockers are no longer a surprise after the way the tenacious ninth seeds held off mighty Ohio State in the West Regional final. Malcolm Armstead scored 14 points, Fred Van Vleet bounced in a big basket with 1 minute left, and Wichita State earned its first trip to the Final Four since 1965 with a 70-66 victory over the Buckeyes on Saturday. Van Vleet scored 12 points as the Shockers (30-8) followed up last week’s win over top-ranked Gonzaga with a nailbiting victory over the second-seeded Buckeyes (29-8), whose 11-game winning streak ended one short of their second straight Final Four. Wichita State’s 20point lead in the second half dwindled to three in the final minutes, but several Shockers stepped up with big plays to stop the surge, heeding coach Gregg Marshall’s halftime command to “play angry.” All that anger turned into a joyous postgame party at midcourt, even though the Shockers realize they’ve got more work to do. Wichita State is just the fifth team seeded ninth or higher to reach the Final Four since seeding began in 1979, but the second in three years following 11thseeded VCU’s improbable run in 2011. The Shockers’ celebration was wild, if a bit disbelieving, in front of several thousand roaring fans. “Last year we were watching all this on television,” said Early, who scored 12 points despite spraining his ankle in the second half. “Now I’m looking at a hat that says ‘Final Four Atlanta’ with my team on it. ... It feels good, and it feels even better that I could experience it with these guys who had to struggle so hard to get here.” Wichita State roared to a 20-point lead with 11 minutes to play after Ohio State played an awful first half, but LaQuinton Ross scored 15 of his 19 points after halftime, leading a ferocious rally that got the Buckeyes within three points in the final minutes. Tekele Cotton hit a clutch 3-pointer for

Wichita State with 2:20 left and grabbed a key offensive rebound moments later, allowing VanVleet to score on a shot that bounced all over the rim before dropping. Ron Baker and Cotton hit last-minute free throws to secure the second Final Four trip in Wichita State’s history and a school-record 30th win. “We’re happy, but I’m still shocked,” said Carl Hall, the glasses-wearing big man who scored eight points and led the Shockers’ strong defensive effort. “We’ve got a team full of fighters. I brought them all together near the end and said, ‘No matter what happens, I love y’all.’ We had to fight so hard. We’ve got each other’s backs, and it’s hard to beat a team that’s got five guys who work together like us.” Deshaun Thomas scored 21 points after missing nine of his first 12 shots for Ohio State, which made just 24 percent of its first-half shots. Aaron Craft scored nine points on 2-for-12 shooting against Armstead and a host of defenders for the Buckeyes, who dug a hole too deep to escape with their second-half rally. “The way we shot coming into the Sweet 16, Elite Eight, everything was falling,” Thomas said. “Today, it just was not our night. Nothing was falling. We had great looks, some of them, but they just weren’t falling.” Yet after two weeks of upsets in the wild West bracket, underdog Wichita State seemed an appropriate pick to cut down Staples Center’s nets. The Shockers’ well-balanced roster built that enormous lead with the same consummate team play that they’ve shown throughout the tournament. The Shockers are also the kings of Kansas, reaching the national semifinals after the powerful Jayhawks and Kansas State both went down. Two sections packed with cheering Shockers fans provided all the encouragement necessary for a team that didn’t win the Missouri Valley Conference tournament and was thought to be a bubble team for an NCAA berth. Now, Wichita State is the MVC’s first Final Four team since Larry Bird led Indiana State to the title game in 1979. Another giant awaits the Shockers in Atlanta next weekend: They’ll face the winner of Sunday’s Midwest Regional final between Duke and Louisville. “We’re all new to this, but I think we’re ready for this,” Early said. “We’re going to prepare ourselves, and this game was pretty good preparation. We started at the bottom, and we’ve been working our way up.”

Mets’ Santana to have shoulder surgery Tuesday

SARASOTA, Fla. (AP) — Johan Santana is set for another shoulder surgery that he hopes will save his career. The former New York Mets ace will have surgery Tuesday to repair the re-torn anterior capsule in his pitching shoulder, the team announced Saturday. The operation will be performed by Mets medical director Dr. David Altchek. Santana is likely to miss the entire season for the second time in three years, which means he may have thrown his last pitch for the Mets. The two-time Cy Young Award winner is in the final year of a $137.5 million contract. “It’s very difficult. If anybody can do it, it would be Johan,” Mets pitching coach Dan Warthen said. “We wish him luck and we feel sick about what’s happened.” Santana had surgery on Sept. 14, 2010, and did not make it back to the major leagues until last April 5. The 34-year-old left-hander didn’t pitch in any exhibition games this spring and threw his last bullpen session in early March without the team’s permission. Mets third baseman David Wright said he was not surprised by Santana’s decision to have surgery. “I’ve known Johan long enough to know that I don’t think that he’d want to go out like that. He’s going to probably work just as hard, if not — if it’s possible — work harder, to come back from this. I wouldn’t be surprised at all if I see him pitch again,” Wright said after the Mets lost to Baltimore 7-1 in their exhibition finale.

Santana’s comeback reached its apex last June 1 when he pitched the first no-hitter in Mets history, throwing a career-high 134 pitches that night in his second consecutive shutout. But he was 3-7 with an 8.27 ERA after that, including 0-5 with a 15.63 ERA after throwing eight scoreless innings against the Los Angeles Dodgers on June 30. He went on the disabled list for three weeks because of a sprained ankle and did not pitch after Aug. 17 because of lower back inflammation. Warthen said Santana’s injury isn’t “a byproduct of the no-hitter.” New York owes Santana $31 million as part of the six-year deal he signed before the 2008 season, and general manager Sandy Alderson said the remainder of the contract is not covered by insurance.

CB Brent Grimes signs with Miami Dolphins

MIAMI (AP) — Cornerback Brent Grimes, who missed almost all of last season with an Achilles tendon injury, signed a one-year contract with the Miami Dolphins on Saturday. Grimes started 28 games for the Atlanta Falcons in 2010-11 but was hurt in their opener last year. He declined to predict whether he’ll be able to take part in offseason practices beginning in May. “I don’t have any restrictions right now,” he said. “I am running and everything. It’s just building up your strength and everything. That’s part of the process, but I have plenty of time. With the offseason workouts and getting everything in shape, I will be great.” Grimes is expected to start for the Dolphins, who lost Sean Smith via free agency to the Kansas City Chiefs. “I picked Miami because I think they are

building something great here, and I would love to be a part of it,” Grimes said. He was undrafted and broke into the NFL with the Falcons in 2007. He has 13 career interceptions, while Smith has five in four seasons. “We are very excited that we were able to reach an agreement with Brent,” Dolphins general manager Jeff Ireland said. “His experience and history of play making production will add a great deal to our secondary.”

Source: QB Kolb in talks with Buffalo Bills

BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) — The quarterback-needy Buffalo Bills have turned their attention to free-agent Kevin Kolb. A person familiar with talks said Saturday night that the Bills are close to completing a deal to sign the sixth-year player. The person spoke on the condition of anonymity because of the sensitive nature of discussions. first reported that a deal between the two sides was close. Kolb spent the past two seasons in Arizona, where injuries hampered his opportunity to prove himself as a starter. The Cardinals were left with little choice but to release Kolb on March 15 in a move that came before they were set to pay the player a $2 million roster bonus and saved the team about $7 million in salary cap space. The Bills are in no position to be choosy. They’re down to one experienced quarterback on their roster — Tarvaris Jackson — after releasing returning starter Ryan Fitzpatrick earlier this month. General manager Buddy Nix has also expressed an intention to select a quarterback high in the draft next month. The Bills are once again in rebuilding mode under rookie coach Doug Marrone, who took over in January after Chan Gailey was fired following three losing seasons. Marrone is an offensive specialist, who spent the past four seasons reviving a struggling football program at Syracuse. Kolb was being counted on by the Cardinals to become their franchise quarterback by acquiring him in a trade with Philadelphia in the summer of 2011. They then signed Kolb to a five-year, $63 million contract with $20 million guaranteed. Kolb, however, got off to a 1-6 start and had trouble adapting to coach Ken Whisenhunt’s offense. He then hurt his toe and was eventually sidelined for the rest of the season because of a concussion. Last season, Kolb helped the Cardinals get off to a 4-0 start before being sidelined for the rest of the season with torn rib cartilage. Kolb has struggled with consistency. He has completed 59.5 percent of his passes, while throwing 28 touchdowns and 25 interceptions in 34 career games.

Women’s basketball Kentucky women hold off Delaware 69-62

BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (AP) — Kentucky

Sunday, March 31, 2013 coach Matthew Mitchell has his team one victory away from the school’s first Final Four. The Wildcats had to overcome an incredible effort by Elena Delle Donne to get there. Jennifer O’Neill scored 19 points and A’dia Mathies added 16 to help Kentucky hold off the Blue Hens 69-62 on Saturday in the Bridgeport regional semifinals, bringing to an end the stellar career of Delle Donne. It’s the second straight season that Kentucky (30-5) has advanced to the regional final and will play Connecticut. The topseeded Huskies beat Maryland 76-50 on Saturday in the second game. UConn beat Kentucky by 15 points last year. “When we were here last year and go back and watch those games, I think we’re more talented than the team last year,” Mitchell said. “If we play really hard and make shots, we can beat either team.” The Wildcats would love to get down to New Orleans, the site the Final Four. It’s the same city where the Kentucky men’s team won the national championship last season. “That’s something, isn’t it,” Mitchell said. “We’d love the opportunity.” Kentucky withstood a Delaware rally led by Delle Donne, who had 33 points for Delaware (32-4). The Wildcats led by 14 in the second half before the Blue Hens cut it to 62-60. But Kastine Evans calmly responded with a 3-pointer from the top of the key to make it 65-60. “She’s unbelievable in those moments,” Mitchell said. “She’s made so many of those. I was not surprised and I was elated and very happy we needed a bucket.” Jaquetta May had three chances at putbacks on the other end, but couldn’t convert and that ended any shot of the upset and finished off Delaware’s amazing season. Delle Donne ended as the fifth all-time leading scorer in NCAA history with 3,039 points. She passed former stars Cheryl Miller, Chamique Holdsclaw and Maya Moore on Saturday. Delle Donne finished short of Jackie Stiles’ all-time scoring mark of 3,393 set at Southwest Missouri State from 1998-2001. Delle Donne said she had no idea she had passed those women’s basketball greats. “I wasn’t aware of anything of that nature,” Delle Donne said. “That’s incredible and it’s definitely humbling to be amongst those names.” There’s little doubt that Delle Donne may have broken the scoring record had she not missed 22 games in her career. The 6-foot5 star who is averaging 26.6 points in her career sat out six games this season with a reoccurrence of the symptoms of Lyme disease that forced her to miss a dozen games two years ago. She did all she could to take Delaware to the regional final. Trailing by 14 early in the second half, the Blue Hens cut their deficit to 62-60 with 2:47 left on a jumper by Delle Donne that touched nearly every part of the rim before dropping in. That was as close as they could get as Evans answered with her 3-pointer. “Kastine hit the biggest shot of the game with that 3-pointer,” Delaware coach Tina Martin said. “That broke our back, giving them enough cushion at end of the game that they were able to sustain it and finish the game off.” With the game out of reach, Martin took Delle Donne out with 10 seconds left to a warm, long ovation from the crowd. “She’s so special to the University of Delaware and the state of Delaware,” Martin said. “I wanted them to have one last time to say thank you to her and the legacy she set for the program.” Delle Donne had little help in the first half as her teammates struggled from the field. The senior forward did pretty much everything she could to help keep the Blue Hens in the game. She scored 13 straight points as Delaware trailed 17-15 midway through the first half. Then Kentucky took over scoring the next 10 points. Bria Goss got the run started with a jumper and capped it with a layup that made it 27-17. The teams then traded baskets the rest of the half with O’Neill hitting a 3-pointer just before the halftime buzzer to make it 41-27. It was the third straight NCAA game that the Blue Hens trailed at the half. They were able to rally against West Virginia and North Carolina at home and tried their best to pull off another, but the Blue Hens fell just short. Lauren Carra had a big second half and finished with 10 points and 10 rebounds to provide a second offensive threat for the Blue Hens. Delaware, which had never made it past the second round before this season, played its first two games at home in front of a raucous crowd that included Vice President Joe Biden. While Biden didn’t make it up to the game Saturday, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie did. He graduated from Delaware where he met his wife Mary Pat. Christie was wearing a yellow Delaware fleece and took pictures and signed ticket stubs for fans. The game was originally planned for the governor’s state. Trenton was to host the regional until the NCAA moved it in November, citing a new law that allowed gambling on college sports in New Jersey. The late switch didn’t seem to impact ticket sales, as Saturday’s session was sold out with nearly 8,600 fans in attendance. The two teams had only played once before, with Delaware winning 86-70 in 2006.

UConn women run past Maryland 76-50

BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (AP) — Connecticut’s youngest players have the Huskies back in an old and familiar spot. Freshmen Breanna Stewart, Moriah Jefferson and Morgan Tuck combined for 35 points as UConn (32-4) advanced to their eighth straight regional final with a 76-50 blowout over Maryland on Saturday. “I think we were 16 for 28 from the floor, our freshmen,” UConn coach Geno Auriemma said. “One turnover between the three of them. I thought they were the key to the game today for sure.” Stewart and sophomore Kaleena


Mosqueda-Lewis each had 17 points to lead the Huskies. Stewart also had eight rebounds and four blocked shots. Jefferson made several key defensive stops and her two fast-break layups capped a 9-0 run to start the second half, giving UConn a 44-26 lead and control of the game. “We got in a nice offensive flow,” she said. “Once the transition game came, then the offensive flow was right there.” Her layup midway through the half stretched the lead to 60-38. She finished with 10 points and Tuck had eight as the Huskies bench outscored Maryland’s 25-0. “They didn’t play like freshmen at all,” center Stefanie Dolson said. “They came out confident and ready to play. They knew what they needed to do for our team and what they can do.” Two-time ACC player of the year Alyssa Thomas, who had scored 29 and 28 points in the team’s first two tournament games, was held to 13 for Maryland, which finished its season at 26-8. Tianna Hawkins and Chloe Pavlech each had 11 points for the Terps. Maryland trailed 35-26 at the half and went scoreless for the first 3 minutes after intermission allowing UConn to blow the game open. “I thought we’d come out of the locker room with a lot more energy,” Maryland coach Brenda Frese said. “They came with a knockout punch in the second half.” The Huskies will play Kentucky on Monday night in a rematch of last year’s regional final, which was played just over 100 miles away in Kingston, R.I. UConn won that game 80-65. The Wildcats beat Delaware 69-62 earlier Saturday. Connecticut will be playing in a regional final for the 19th time. The Huskies have made five consecutive trips to the Final Four and are seeking their eighth national title. It was the second win over Maryland this season for UConn. The Huskies won by 15 points in the Jimmy V Classic in December. Thomas had just six points in that game, and the Huskies held the Terps to just 48 points, their lowest output this season. They also were outrebounded 39-35, one of just five times that happened this season. Maryland came into the game ranked second in the nation in rebounding margin, grabbing more than 14 more boards per game than its opponents. The Terps had outrebounded opponents in 32 of their first 33 games. But UConn won that battle this time around 41-36. “We were really looking forward to getting back on the court,” Stewart said. “We knew Maryland was very physical and we just wanted to come out and disrupt them defensively.” Maryland hit just seven of its first 23 shots, but was 4 of 7 from 3-point range during that span, and trailed just 23-20 midway through the first half. But 3-pointers from Bria Hartley and Kelly Faris pushed the lead to nine, and started a 12-1 run. The Huskies looked as if they were about to extend that further, when Faris drove to the basket and appeared to take a hard foul. But there was no whistle, infuriating coach Geno Auriemma, who received a technical foul. Thomas made one of two foul shots, then hit a jump shot that cut the lead to nine 35-26 at halftime. UConn is 44-4 in NCAA tournament games played in the state and 8-1 in Bridgeport. UConn’s lone blemish came against Duke in 2006 in the regional final. Maryland was in its 10th regional semifinal and looking to make back-to-back trips to the regional final despite losing three players this season to ACL injuries, including the expected starting backcourt, guards Brene Moseley and Laurin Mincy. “Next year we’ll have plenty of numbers, a full roster,” Thomas said. “Not to take away from this season, but looking forward to next season, we’re going to be a tough team to stop next year.”

Georgia women rally to beat Stanford 61-59

SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) — Jasmine Hassell scored six of her 13 points in the final 3 minutes and fourth-seeded Georgia beat top-seeded Stanford 61-59 on Saturday night to reach the NCAA women's regional finals for the first time since 2004. Georgia overcame three major scoring droughts, including falling behind 9-0, to oust the No. 1 seed from the Spokane Regional and end Stanford's hopes of reaching the Final Four for the sixth straight year. Jasmine James led Georgia (28-6) with 16 points, including a pair of free throws with 23.5 seconds left that gave the Lady Bulldogs a 60-56 lead. It's the 11th trip to the regional finals for coach Andy Landers in his long tenure at Georgia. Chiney Ogwumike led Stanford (33-3) with 26 points, but was held to eight points in the second half. She also had 12 rebounds. Tiaria Griffin scored 13 points, and Shacobia Barbee added nine as the Lady Bulldogs turned in another superb defensive effort to stymie Stanford and ruin any hopes of a Pac-12 showdown with No. 2 seed California in the regional final. Georgia will play for a trip to the Final Four on Monday night against either the Golden Bears or No. 6 seed LSU. Georgia has not made the Final Four since 1999. Georgia reached the round of 16 in 2005-07 and 2010-11, only to get ousted at that stage each time, including a 73-36 loss to Stanford in 2010. Amber Orrange added 17 points for Stanford, but was only 7 of 24 from the field. The Cardinal shot 29 percent in the second half and struggled to find open looks for Ogwumike, who was dominant with 18 points in the first half. Ogwumike simply didn't have enough of a supporting cast. Second-leading scorer Joslyn Tinkle struggled with foul trouble in the first half and went more than 35 minutes of game time without scoring. She finished with five points.

don’t come around every day.” Guerrero said Alford is “the perfect fit for UCLA” because he connects with a new generation of players and brings an up-tempo and team-oriented style of play to Westwood. “He’s ready for this stage,” Guerrero said. Alford’s deal with New Mexico, scheduled to take effect on April 1, was worth more than $20 million over 10 years. Guerrero said Alford is responsible for a buyout of his agreement in Albuquerque, but that UCLA would work out the details. Both Alford and New Mexico athletic director Paul Krebs said they didn’t know how much the buyout was worth. Alford, who is 48, succeeds Ben Howland, who was fired last weekend after 10 years and a 233-107 record that included three

consecutive Final Four appearances and four Pac12 titles. The Bruins were 25-10 this season, which ended with a 20-point loss to Minnesota in the second round of the NCAA tournament. Alford led New Mexico to a 29-6 record this season that included the Mountain West regular-season and tournament titles. But the Lobos were upset by Harvard in the second round of the NCAAs shortly after Alford’s new contract had been announced. Alford had a 155-52 record in six years at New Mexico, with the Lobos making three trips to the NCAA tournament. He was selected Mountain West coach of the year three times. “I’m about building programs, not teams, not seasons,” Alford said. “UCLA doesn’t just want one winning season, UCLA wants a basketball program that is going to breed consistent excellence. “I’ve always tried to do things with excellence.

No. 3 and No. 4 pitchers out there, I thought they did a pretty good job.” Capitan raced out to an early lead, plating a run on two hits to take a 1-0 lead, but the Warriors responded when Jacob Moody scored after the T igers’ Mikey Hamm mishandled a Tyler Raines single. In the top of the second, Capitan had a chance to blow the game open, but the

appeared ready to coast to a victory, adding one run in the second, fourth and fifth innings. Through six innings, Austin Rader (four innings) and Cody French (two innings) had held Artesia without a hit, but, in the top of the seventh, the wheels fell off. Artesia scored eight runs on six walks and four hits, which set the table for Weathers’ heroics in the home half of the seventh. With one out, Brad Blackwell singled and advanced to third on a Mark McCool single. Following a McCool steal, the Bulldogs loaded the bases by intentionally walking Christian Wentland. That proved to be a mistake, as Weathers drove in Blackwell with a single up the middle. Weathers finished the game 3 for 4, while Blackwell also collected three hits and was named to the alltournament team. Chase Hubbard, Adam Brown, French and Rader

six stolen bases; four pitchers; three hits; three errors; three men left on base. “(Texico) struggled and we took advantage of it,” Ward said. “I’m a very aggressive coach when it comes to base running. I demand perfection and I thought we did great.” NMMI being patient at the plate was a big part of it as well. “We talk about being disciplined at the plate; know your strike zone and know when you need to swing. ... I was very proud of that,” Ward said. The Colts posted two insurance runs in the fourth to stretch the lead to 12-0. The only intriguing part of the fifth was whether Caleb Saiz was going to polish off a no-hit performance. Texico’s Jarron Hill shut down hopes of that with a single into center. Gary Doolittle followed with another single. “As a team, we’re hoping for him to get the no-hitter. But, you have to give Texico credit. That boy is a slap hitter at leadoff. He did his job,” Ward said. Saiz, who won the tournament MVP award, struck out the next batter before allowing a walk to load the bases. He then induced a fly out to center for the game’s final out. “He’s a gamer. ... I’ll take Caleb Saiz over anyone in the state. That’s just the facts,” said Ward about his ace. “He’s been in the big games at state. With him on the mound, you like your

when he talked to Alford on Saturday morning that his mind was made up, and although he’s disappointed, he said he respected the decision. Krebs said it was like a “bomb dropped in the room” when Alford told his players he was leaving. “This is a very emotional time,” Krebs said. “There is no good way to break the news to the young men in the program. ... There’s a lot of raw emotion right now.” Alford said, “That’s not easy to look those young men in the face, but I think they understand. The reason they understand is it’s UCLA. If it was anywhere else, this is not a decision that would have been made.” Lobos senior center Alex Kirk said, “Nobody would say no to UCLA. That’s crazy.” Guerrero had said he wanted a coach who would help boost season ticket sales. The Bruins had just a few sellouts at newly renovated Pauley Pavilion this season.

chances.” At the plate, Saiz helped his own cause by going 2 for 3, including a two-run inside-the-park home run, with two runs scored and three RBIs. Haden Maloney (two RBIs) and Caleb Taylor (1 for 3, two runs scored) joined Saiz on the all-tournament team for the Colts. T exico’s Carlos Silva took the loss after allowing four runs on four hits in 2 1/3 innings. The title was the eighth won by NMMI in the 19year history of the event. Santa Teresa (1998 and 2000) and Eunice (1999 and 2010) are the only other teams to have won the title more than once. “Let me give kudos and props to everybody who was involved with this tournament; the Sertoma Club ... NMMI and the staff ... the parents,” Ward said after the trophy ceremony. “I just want to give props to anyone who was involved.”

“I think the UCLA family will embrace him. I think he’ll be able to hit on all cylinders,” Guerrero said. “He’ll be able to energize the fan base in so many ways. Look at New Mexico, they get 15,000 a game. It’s madness there.” Alford is known for his up-tempo coaching style, which should suit Bruins fans turned off by Howland’s grind-it-out defensive emphasis. “We do like to score points, we like transition, we like to get up and down the floor,” he said, while noting that defense wins championships. “Ultimately, it’s about the product — are they good young men of character and integrity?” Alford called recruiting in fertile Southern California “of the utmost importance.” He had players from the region on his New Mexico roster, including Kendall Williams, who became Mountain West player of the year. “I will hit the ground running,” he said, noting the respect he has for high

Following a walk and bunt single, Tracker Bowen ripped an RBI double to right center that pushed the Tiger lead to three.

every regard, you see the word excellence.” Expectations have always been high in Westwood since Wooden’s era. The Bruins own a record 11 national championships, but have won just one — in 1995 under Jim Harrick — since Wooden retired. “Nobody understands pressure any more than I do. I’ve been under pressure since I was 16,” said Alford, whose high school gym in New Castle, Ind., seats 10,000 and frequently sold out when he was there. “You’re not going to find anybody more competitive than I am.” Guerrero said, “He’s not the kind of guy that will shy away from what UCLA basketball is all about.” The Lobos didn’t just lose Alford, they also won’t have his son, Bryce, on their roster next season. Alford said his highly touted son would follow him to Westwood, continuing a tradition that Alford first established when he played under his father at New Castle Chrysler High. Krebs said it was clear

Warriors were able to get out of the inning relatively unscathed. The Tigers loaded the bases with no outs after a single, error and walk, but Gateway’s Chris Bonham responded by getting Bo Wall to pop out to second and striking out Rual Villegas.

The third time proved to be the charm for the Tigers, however. Dreamer Whipple started the Capitan

After Santa Rosa took a 2-0 with a pair of runs in the bottom of the first, the Demons responded with two of its own in the top of the second. Dexter took the lead for good in the third after Ramiro Robles scored a single from Jacob Sanchez, making it 3-2. The Demons added three more runs in the third to take a 6-2 lead and plated four runs in the fourth and eighth in the fifth to close out the mercy-rule victory. Edgar Munoz paced the Demon offense with two hits and 4 RBIs, while Jacob Sanchez struck out five in five innings of work to get the win. Munoz and Sanchez were named to the all-tournament team for Dexter.

school coaches was formed through his father. Alford’s other head coaching stints were at Iowa (2000-07), Missouri State (1996-99) and Manchester College (1992-95) in Indiana. Alford is famous in the Hoosier state, where he starred at Indiana University from 1984-87 under coach Bob Knight. The Hoosiers won the national championship in his senior year. He also played on the gold medal-winning 1984 U.S. Olympic basketball team in Los Angeles as a college sophomore. Knight coached that team. Alford said he put in a call to his former coach about taking the UCLA job. Alford was drafted by the Dallas Mavericks in 1987 and played four years in the NBA before starting his head coaching career at tiny Division III Manchester. As a high school senior, Alford averaged 37.7 points and was Indiana Mr. Basketball. Besides Bryce, Alford and his wife, Tanya, have a son, Kory, and a daughter, Kayla.

with a pair of comeback wins over El Paso on Saturday. In the first game, the Tejanos led 2-0 after two innings, but the Broncos responded with a run in the third and six more in the fourth. After El Paso cut the lead to 7-5 with three runs in the fifth, NMMI (12-22) answered with four runs in the top of the sixth to reclaim momentum. Caleb Mitchell, Correy Davis, Niovel Ruiz and Alonzo Martinez each had two hits for the Broncos in Game 1, while Jacob Gomez pitched five innings to pick up the win. In the nightcap, El Paso seemed to have the game in hand after carrying a 7-1 lead into the eighth inning, but NMMI wasn’t out of it yet. Davis smacked a three-run homer in the eighth inning to make it a 7-4 game and, after holding the Tejanos scoreless in the home half of the eighth, the Broncos plated four runs in the top of the ninth to take an 8-7 lead. After coming in to get the last out of the eighth inning, NMMI’s Edwin Suarez struck out the side in the ninth inning to close out the win.

After Jimmy Butler missed two free throws with 15.9 seconds remaining, Vince Carter drove down the lane and kicked a pass out to

Nowitzki, who stepped into a 3pointer with Luol Deng running at him. Nowitzki raised both hands in the air and yelled as he headed toward the Dallas bench. Chicago’s Nate Robinson then missed a jumper at the buzzer that would have tied it. “It didn’t feel great,” Nowitzki said. Dallas (36-37) crept within a game of the Los Angeles Lakers and the Utah Jazz for the final playoff spot in the West. The Jazz hosted Brooklyn on Saturday night and the Lakers were at Sacramento. The Mavericks, who bounced back from a 25-point loss to Indiana, open a four-game road trip against the Lakers on Tuesday night. “All these are must win for us,” Dallas center Brandan Wright said. “We couldn’t afford to lose two in a row.”

Robinson scored 14 of his 25 points in the fourth in Chicago’s first game since ending the Miami Heat's 27-game winning streak. The reserve guard made all seven of his 3-point attempts. Carlos Boozer and Deng also had 25 points for the Bulls, who hit a season-high 12 3-pointers. “This was definitely a tough loss,” Chicago guard Kirk Hinrich said. “We just didn’t finish it out. They have a lot of guys with lots of experience and I give them credit.” The Mavericks trailed 97-85 after Deng hit the Bulls’ sixth 3-pointer of the final period. Nowitzki made a 3 to cut Dallas’ deficit to 97-95 with 53.9 seconds left. The Bulls, who missed three of four foul shots in the final minute, got a free throw from Boozer with 41.2 seconds remaining.



21 years later, Pitino and Fab 5 last Michigan region Krzyzewski meet again final, Florida 3 in row Roswell Daily Record

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Mike Krzyzewski and Rick Pitino are finally doing an encore. For the first time since their teams played perhaps the greatest game in the history of the NCAA tournament, Krzyzewski and Pitino will meet in the NCAA tournament Sunday when top-seeded Louisville faces Duke. In the regional finals, no less. Never mind that few of their current players were even born in 1992. Or that Pitino is no longer at Kentucky, having switched sides in the state’s civil war after his brief trip to Boston and the NBA ended badly. Krzyzewski and Pitino are forever linked by that one game in Philadelphia, immortalized by Christian Laettner’s impr obable shot. “It’s one of those moments in time that helped define our sport,” Krzyzewski said Saturday. “When I’ve talked to Rick about it, we r ealize we were the lucky guys. We had different roles at that time, but we wer e both lucky to be there.” Said Pitino, “It was like being in Carnegie Hall and seeing the best musician or the best singer. Just sitting there in amazement of what they were doing out on the basketball court.” Krzyzewski and Pitino ar e two of the finest coaches of their generation, with five NCAA titles and 1,618 victories between them. Yet for all of their success, and for as good a friends as they are, Krzyzewski and Pitino rarely play each other. When Louisville (32-5) and Duke (30-5) played in the Battle 4 Atlantis tournament in November — Duke won — it was the first time Krzyzewski and Pitino had played each other since ‘92. Sunday’s game will be their third meeting ever. “That’s why we got them in the conference. Got to start doing this a little bit more,” Krzyzewski joked, referring to Louisville’s upcoming move to the ACC. But almost nothing could top that first meeting between them. The Blue Devils, led by Laettner and Grant Hill, were defending national champions in 1992. Kentucky was on the rise again after two years on probation. When they met in the old Spectrum for

the East Region finals, it was a showdown of the 1 and 2 seeds, a game worthy of a national championship. “It was such a highscoring game with so much perfection in the way players passed and shot the ball. That’s what made it stand the test of time,” Pitino said. “It was a game where two coaches could sit back and watch great players perform at the highest level.” After coming from 10 down in regulation, Kentucky appeared to have the game won when Sean Wo o d s m a d e a r u n n i n g bank shot in the lane with 2.5 seconds left in overtime. Duke called a timeout, and gave the ball to Grant Hill to inbound. The Wildcats knew the ball was going to Laettner, a 6-foot-11 center who’d made a buzzer -beater against Connecticut in the regional finals two years earlier. But without Jamal Mashbur n —he’d fouled out — Pitino pulled John Pelphrey and Deron Feldhaus aside and war ned them not to foul. “I said, ‘Whatever you do, don’t foul him. He hasn’t missed a shot,’” Pitino recalled. “I shouldn’t have done that. That was the mistake I made. I should have said, ‘Whatever you do, bat down the ball. I don’t care what the contact is, go for the basketball.’ “You saw my guys freeze a little bit.” As anyone who’s ever watched the NCAA tournament in the last 21 years knows, Hill threw a strike from the far baseline and found Laettner at the foul line with his back to the basket. Laettner faked right, spun to his left and his 15-footer hit nothing but net as the buzzer sounded. “I don’t think you can realize the significance at that time,” Krzyzewski said. “I will always remember the stark difference in emotion. Because, right in front of me, Richie Farmer collapsed. I see our guys jump and I see him fall. And r eally, I was mor e taken by Richie. I understood by looking at him ... just how tough that was.” It was agonizing for the first 24 hours, Pitino said. But when he popped a tape of the game in the next day, he saw it in a different light. “I just sat back and said, ‘Darn, that was some

hell of a basketball game,’” he said. “I got the guys together and I said, ‘Man, that was a great game.’ Really was a great game, especially playing without Mash.” Duke would go on to win its second straight title, beating Michigan in the final. Kentucky would complete its revival four years later when the Wildcats beat Syracuse for their sixth NCAA title and first since 1978. But it is that game that everyone remembers, and the years have done nothing to diminish it. Clips of the play are on r epeat thr oughout the tour nament each year. And as the NCAA celebrates 75 years of March Madness this year, the Laettner play has been among the highlights. “I do think about it often,” Pitino said. “Not from a revenge standpoint, but as a great game that I was happy to be part of. “To me, it’s one of the best losses I’ve ever had,” he said. “A bad loss is where your guys play terrible, you don’t play. It was a great loss because my guys played almost a perfect game and we just had the wrong ending for us. But it was one of the greatest basketball games ever played because it was so high-power ed with great play. One great play after another. That was fun to be part of.”

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Trey Burke was a 16-month-old toddler the last time Michigan was still playing this late in the NCAA tournament. That regional final 19 years ago, a loss that ended the Fab Five era, was played in a building that no longer exists. Where Reunion Arena once stood near downtown Dallas is now a vacant lot about 20 minutes from where the Wolverines finally get another chance to get back to the Final Four. “It’s definitely crazy,” Burke said Saturday. “Just to get this program moving back in the right direction means a lot to us.” No. 4 seed Michigan (29-7) plays SEC regular -season champion and No. 3 seed Florida (29-7) for the South Regional title on the raised court at ultramodern Cowboys Stadium on Sunday. The Wolverines advanced largely because of Burke, the sophomore and Big Ten player of the year who scored 23 points — all after halftime — as they overcame a 14-point deficit against top seed Kansas. They forced overtime when Burke hit a long game-tying 3-pointer with 4.2 seconds left in regulation and won 87-85 in overtime. “Yeah, I was surprised at how far I was,” Burke admitted after seeing multiple replays of the shot that may just become known as the Fab 3. Burke also had 10 assists, making him the first player to have 20 points and 10 assists in the NCAA round of 16 since 1997. The last to do it? A Providence player known as “Billy The Kid” — aka Florida coach Billy Donovan, who will be on the opposite bench when his Gators play in their third consecutive regional final. “It’s funny, my wife says to me this morning, she asked me the same question, she said, ‘Who was the player?’,” said Donovan, admitting that he already knew and remembered his numbers (26 points, 10 assists vs. Alabama). “And I

And she said, ‘No, you.’ I said I’m glad I’m comparing myself to Magic Johnson, that’s great.” Florida has been to this point each of the last two years, but they haven’t been further since winning consecutive national championships under Donovan in 2006 and 2007. In both of those regional final losses — to Louisville last year and in overtime to Butler in 2011 — the Gators had 11point leads in the second half. This is now the last chance for fourth-year Florida seniors Kenny Boynton and Erik Murphy to get a title of their own. “Game to game, it’s a different feeling,” Boynton said. “You think about it before the game. Once the game starts, you try to do everything in your control individually and as a team to change the outcome. Up to this point, our team does a great job preparing the right way.” After falling behind 15-4 early against Florida Gulf Coast, the high-flying No. 15 seed everybody knows now after an unprecedented run to the NCAA round of 16, the Gators recovered with a 16-0 run late in the first half to go ahead to stay in a 62-50 victory. While Florida is loaded with seniors and NCAA tournament experience, the Wolverines have three freshmen in their starting lineup. Junior guard Tim Hardaway Jr., one of three sons of former NBA players on Michigan’s roster, is the only starter older than Burke. All that youth never kept them from starting the season with the goal of competing for a national championship. “A lot of people doubted us, a lot of people thought we were too young, not tough enough. And I think we’ve proved people wrong over the last couple of weeks,” Burke said. “I think we understood we have what it takes to be a young team that can go far in this tournament. ... Being young isn’t an excuse.”

Frank A. Jimenez Jr.

Frank A. Jimenez Jr., 63, passed away peacefully while surrounded by his loving family on Friday, March 29, 2013, at Eastern New Mexico Medical Center. Frank was a devoted loving husband, father, grandfather, brother, son-in-law, uncle and friend to many people and he will be greatly missed. Frank’s greatest pleasure in life was spending time with his family. He loved fishing, watching golf and football, having family get-togethers, having dart tournaments, but above all spoiling his grandchildren. He was the heart and soul of his family, and the person everyone came to for guidance, comfort, support and most of all love. He was a kind and gentle man who would do anything to care for his family and make sure they were happy. Our fondest memories with our Dad are hanging out and swimming at the Pecos River, fish frys, 3wheeling, camping, playing darts and horseshoes, fishing, and all of our family holidays spent together. On Aug. 15, 1949, Frank was born to Frank Sr. and Prestinia Jimenez, in Roswell. He attended St. John’s Catholic School and was an altar boy for the church. On June 9, 1969, he married the love of his life Elvira, shortly before his deployment to serve his country in the Navy. They spent the next 40 years together. During this time they had four children, and in 1981 chose to call Dex-


ter their home. Frank started his profession as a meat cutter shortly after his service in the Navy. He worked in this profession for 20-plus years. In the late 1980s he started on a new venture and became employed at Christmas by Krebs as a paint room supervisor, where he worked for 20-plus more years until his retirement in 2010. He was preceded in death by his loving wife Elvira Jimenez; and his parents Frank A. Jimenez Sr. and Prestinia Richardson Jimenez. Frank is survived by his daughters, Nancy Colby and husband Chris, of Dexter, Monica Weusi and husband Akram, of Harker Heights, Texas, and Rebecca Ginanni and husband Clifford, of Lubbock; his son Frank A. Jimenez III and wife Champagne, of Hobbs; his grandchildren, David, Briana, Jonathon, Christopher “Spike,” Haley, Emily, Erin, Anisah, Fidencio and Angelo; his fatherin-law and mother-in-law Abselin and Maria Lucero, of Roswell; sisters-in-law, Lupe Mendoza, of Roswell, and Cecilia Gomez and husband Tommy, of Dexter; his brothers, Balois Richardson, Gilbert Richardson, Bartolo Jimenez and Er nest Jimenez; sisters, JoAnn Sanchez, Cecilia Sanchez and Rosemary Smith; and many loved nieces, nephews, uncles, aunts and cousins. The family would like to thank Eastern New Mexico Medical Center, the physicians and staff, with special thanks to Dr. Asif Muhammad, and the nursing staff, Rosa, Jose and Alberto for the caring and compassion for our father during his stay. A memorial service will be held at 11 a.m., Monday, April 1, 2013, at Anderson-Bethany Funeral Home, with Deacon Ernesto Martinez officiating. Military honors will be provided by the Roswell Veterans Honor Guard. Please take a moment to share your thoughts and memories with the family in the online registry book at Services are under the direction of AndersonBethany Funeral Home and Crematory. I Am Free Don’t grieve for me, for now I’m free I am following the path God laid for me. I took His hand when I heard Him call, I turned my back and left it all. I could not stay another day to laugh, to love, to work or play. Tasks left undone must

Wanda Jean McDaniel

Wanda Jean Napier McDaniel was born July 15, 1938, in Alamogordo, and grew up in the Sacramento Mountains. Wanda attended school in Weed, until the family moved to Alamogordo in the late 1940s. She graduated from Alamogordo High School in 1956. Wanda was Otero County Fair Queen in 1957. She worked for the Alamogordo City Police Department as their first meter maid. It was during this time she met the love of her life J.D. McDaniel. They were married Dec. 25, 1957, at her parents’ home. The caption on their engagement

Roswell Daily Record announcement was, “Writing a ticket for life.” J.D. also worked for the Alamogordo Police Department as their first motorcycle cop. They were married for 49 years at the time of J.D.’s passing. They moved to Vaughn, in December 1957, where they owned and operated a Texaco Service station and motel. Wanda also sold New Mexico license plates and drove a school bus for the Vaughn schools. In 1960, they bought J.D.’s dad’s Gulf Service station and operated it until J.D.’s retirement. In the mid-1960s, she went to work for the U.S. Postal Service as a relief clerk. In 1969, she was hired as a full-time clerk at the East Vaughn post office, where she remained until it closed. At that time she transferred to the West Vaughn post of fice. She also worked in the Encino post office until she became the postmaster of the Vaughn post office, Feb. 19, 1983, where she worked until her retirement on January 4, 2002. Wanda was a member of Rowena Chapter No. 36, Order of the Eastern Star, and served as Worthy Matron in 1965. She also played on several women’s softball teams and was a heck of a pitcher!

End of the line for Roadrunner supercomputer Roswell Daily Record

ALBUQUERQUE (AP) — It’s the end of the line for Roadrunner, a first-of-itskind collection of processors that once reigned as the world’s fastest supercomputer. The $121 million supercomputer, housed at one of the nation’s premier nuclear weapons research laboratories in northern New Mexico, will be decommissioned Sunday. The reason? The world of supercomputing is evolving and Roadrunner has been replaced with something smaller, faster, more energy efficient and cheaper. Still, of ficials at Los Alamos National Laboratory say it’s among the 25 fastest supercomputers in the world. “Roadrunner got everyone thinking in new ways about how to build and use a supercomputer,” said


Court upholds conviction CLOVIS (AP) — The New Mexico Supreme Court has upheld the murder conviction of a Roswell man who was sentenced to life in prison plus 18 years for the slaying of a truck driver in Clovis. The court announced this week that it had rejected the appeal Brandon Barela. Barela was sentenced in 2010 after being convicted of first-degree murder, kidnapping, armed robbery and tampering with evidence in the killing of 51year -old Ron Hittson of Tucumcari. A body was found in a ditch in the Clovis area on April 2, 2009, but authorities say it was unrecognizable due to severe injuries. An autopsy later determined it was Hittson. An investigation found that Barela stole $300 from Hittson, then beat

Gary Grider, who works in the lab’s high performance computing division. “Specialized processors are being included in new ways on new systems and being used in novel ways. Our demonstration with Roadrunner caused everyone to pay attention.” In 2008, Roadrunner was first to break the elusive petaflop barrier by processing just over a quadrillion mathematical calculations per second. Los Alamos teamed up with IBM to build Roadrunner from commercially available parts. They ended up with 278 refrigerator size racks filled with two different types of processors, all linked together by 55 miles of fiber optic cable. It took nearly two dozen tractor-trailer trucks to deliver the supercomputer from New York to north-

ern New Mexico. The supercomputer has been used over the last five years to model viruses and unseen parts of the universe, to better understand lasers and for nuclear weapons work. That includes simulations aimed at ensuring the safety and reliability of the nation’s aging arsenal. As part of the U.S. nuclear stockpile stewardship program, researchers used Roadrunner’s highspeed calculation capabilities to unravel some of the mysteries of energy flow in weapons. Los Alamos has been helping pioneer novel computer systems for decades. In 1976, the lab helped with the development of the Cray-1. In 1993, the lab held the fastest supercomputer title with the Thinking Machine CM-5.

“And to think of where we’re going to be in the next 10 to 15 years, it’s just mindboggling,” said lab spokesman Kevin Roark. Right now, Los Alamos — along with scientists at Sandia National Laboratories in Albuquerque and Lawrence Liver more National Laboratory in California — is using a supercomputer dubbed Cielo. Installed in 2010, it’s slightly faster than Roadrunner, takes up less space and came in at just under $54 million. Roark said in the next 10 to 20 years, it’s expected that the world’s supercomputers will be capable of breaking the exascale barrier, or one quintillion calculations per second. There will be no ceremony when Roadrunner is switched off Sunday, but

of ficials said lab researchers will spend the next month experimenting with its operating system and techniques for com-

pressing memory before dismantling begins. They say the work could help guide the design of future supercomputers.

him with a cinder block and left him to die. Police later recovered the murder weapon and Barela’s bloody clothing. Minimum wage veto SANTA FE (AP) —Gov. Susana Martinez has vetoed a proposal by the Democratic-controlled Legislature that would have increased New Mexico’s minimum wage to the fourth highest in the nation. Martinez followed through on an earlier threat and rejected the measure on Friday that would have boosted the minimum wage to $8.50 an hour from $7.50. The governor said the proposed increase would have cost the state jobs. Martinez reiterated that she would have signed an increase in the hourly wage rate to $7.80, making it the same as Arizona’s minimum wage.

Jobless rate increase SANTA FE (AP) — State officials report that New Mexico’s unemployment increased slightly last month, and that job growth remains slow. The Department of Workforce Solutions said Friday that the seasonally adjusted unemployment rate was 6.8 percent in February. It was 6.6 percent in January, and 7 percent in February 2012. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics said New Mexico was among 44 states in which February’s jobless rate wasn’t measurably dif ferent from a month earlier. The state gained 5,600 jobs during the past year, with a job growth rate of 0.7 percent. The leisure and hospitality industry accounted for the largest increase, picking up 2,600 jobs since last February. The state

has lost 900 federal jobs during the same time. Revamped PRC SANTA FE (AP) — Gov. Susana Martinez has approved measures revamping the Public RegCommission, ulation including increasing qualifications for future members. Bills signed into law on Friday will transfer the registration of corporations to the secretary of state’s office from the PRC and establish an independent office to regulate insurance rates and policies. Voters approved constitutional amendments in November to require the changes. Future PRC candidates or appointees must have at least 10 years of professional experience in a field related to the agency, such as finance, law and government administration, or that much combined experience and higher educa-

tion. The standards won’t apply to the current five PRC members, who need only to be 18 years old and state residents. Another new law eases regulation of taxis, shuttles and in-state moving companies. Tree program SANTA FE (AP) — Tax season is almost over, but of ficials with the State Forestry Division say it’s not too late for New Mexicans to donate some of their tax refunds to tree planting efforts around the state. Of ficials say there’s a check-off box at the end of New Mexico tax retur n documents that will direct any amount specified to the Re-Leaf Program. Urban and Community Forester Kelly Washburn says people can also mail donations directly to the program or volunteer to

plant trees. The program is funded exclusively through private and corporate donations. Since being created by the New Mexico Legislature in 1990, more than $550,000 has been granted as part of the Re-Leaf Program to plant more than 19,000 trees on public lands throughout the state. Bosque trails RIO RANCHO (AP) — Rio Rancho city officials say trails along the Rio Grande would be back open Saturday morning. The Willow Creek Bosque Park was closed for about three weeks due to a habitat restoration project aimed at helping the Rio Grande silvery minnow and the Southwestern willow flycatcher. About 28 acres were treated. Officials say recreational access to the river was also improved.

He loved working outdoors. He loved his amazing 16 grandchildren. Bob was a well-loved man and he loved his Lord with all his heart. He was a devoted husband, father and brother. Bob worked for the Roswell Independent School District for 221⁄2 years. He was retired for nine years. He is survived by his wife Sue Seaman of the family home; his children, Doug Seaman and his wife Kathy, of Massachusetts, Darwin Seaman and his wife Jennifer, of Florida, Dale Seaman and his wife Robin, of Albuquerque, Denise Sanford, of Dexter, Dixie Van and her husband Phillip, of Roswell, Jake Seaman, of Florida; 16

The U.S. Border Patrol Citizens’ Academy coming soon STEVE WOLFE ROSWELL SAFE COALITION

To begin, let me wish you all a glorious Easter Day! We have a gem in our midst here in southeast New Mexico, and although it must mean a lot to our neighbors to the south in Artesia, I think we in Roswell rarely think about it. I’m speaking of the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center, affectionately known by its acronym “FLETC.” FLETC does in fact have major impact in Roswell and Chaves County. Many people travel to Artesia daily, some as federal employees working as part of the FLETC training mission, and others as contractors involved in countless construction and other necessary service activities. About five years ago, I worked for

a construction company which built roads, pads for new buildings, and several other earthwork projects, all of which were ongoing at FLETC. We had permanent crews there year-round. I found it fascinating to see all of the activity and training which never ceased there in Artesia. Because FLETC is a secure facility, most of the public does not see it as closely as I did. Well, here’s an

opportunity to do that. Housed within the training center is the U.S. Border Patrol Academy, a function of the Department of Homeland Security. The Border Patrol Academy is inviting the general public to participate in its Citizen’s Academy, a program designed to give members of the community an opportunity to experience what it takes to become a Border Patrol Agent. What a great chance to learn, at close range, about a profession which means so much to the security of the United States! Perhaps you or someone you know will find their life’s work by way of this Citizens’ Academy. The program will commence on Thursday, April 11, and continue for six consecutive weeks. For the first four weeks, class will be held each Thursday evening from 6-8 p.m. During these classes, partic-

Roswell Daily Record



Peace, Love and


It’s not about the pins that fall, the strikes that are made or the scorekeeping. It’s not even about getting that lucky pair of bowling shoes in your favorite color. It is, however, about getting a proverbial pat on the back after weeks of fundraising for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Southeastern New Mexico. The kudos come with free pizza, coveted door prizes, the chance to win rewards and hours of fun. The 10th annual Bowl For Kids’ Sake is set to take place April 20 at City Center Lanes, 3905 Southeast Main. There will be two sessions that day — from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. and from 1:30-3:30 p.m. With the theme “peace, love and bowling,” everyone’s encouraged to dress up in a 1960s-style clothing for a chance to win a prize for best costume. Strictly a bowling party — not a competition — Bowl For Kids’ Sake will feature five-member bowling teams battling it out not on the bowling lanes, but with the pledges they get. Each individual who plays in Bowl For Kids’ Sake must contribute a minimum of $100 to the BBBS cause. Each team, therefore, gets to play for a minimum of $500. An actual bowling team is optional — anyone may sign up as an individual, show up to the bowling party event and then be placed in a team. Raising at least $100 is still part of the deal. The three individuals who raise the most money on their own will get a prize during Bowl For Kids’ Sake. Also, the team to raise the most money collectively will be given a prize. In fact, last year a single individual raised about $1,200. Many who participate in Bowl For Kids’ Sake are sponsored either by the company they work for or another business that’s interested in supporting BBBS. Furthermore, many business leaders and other individuals in the community choose to simply give — either inkind donations or monetary contributions. In-kind donations are usually used as prizes. Corporate sponsors receive, in return, advertisement throughout the Bowl For Kids’ Sake event. “You can donate to our event without participating,” said Amanda Ware, chief operating officer of the local BBBS office. Either way, said BBBS of Southeastern New Mexico Chief Executive Officer Bill Wolf, all of the funds raised go toward “the continuation of our one-to-one mentoring operations. “The funds are used to allow us to do what we do,” he said. Including in-kind donations, last year’s Bowl For Kids’ Sake raised more than $38,000. This year’s fundraising goal is $50,000. An affiliate of Big Brothers Big Sisters of America, the southeast New Mexico faction is a nonprofit organization that connects good mentors with children who need them the most. Although there are Bowl For Kids’ Sake events taking place around the country this time of the year, funds from Roswell’s event will remain in southeast New Mexico and help children ages 5-17, known as “littles,” who could benefit from spending quality time with a positive adult role model, known as a “big.” The dedicated staff members at BBBSSNM help establish and foster two types of mentorship interaction. There is the community-based program, in which the “big” picks up the “little” at his or her home to go out and enjoy quality time in the community. There is also the sitebased program, in which the “big” meets with a “little” at school once a week to do a more structured activity. The goal of either type of match is the same — to model a positive lifestyle to an at-risk child, so that the child will have an increased chance of growing up to become a productive member of society. The primary fundraiser for BBBS of Southeastern New Mexico, Bowl For Kids’ Sake is also an opportunity for “bigs” and “littles” to interact in a family-oriented, safe environment; entirely for free. “The fundraising is about over then,” Wolf explained. “It’s just a big party to celebrate.” Those interested in bowling — as either a team or an individual — may sign up now through April 12. The deadline to sign on as a corporate sponsor is April 5. Registration can be done online at the local BBBS website,, or the paperwork may be downloaded from there and mailed to 1717 W. Second St., suite 200; Roswell, NM 88201. One may also drop by the BBBS office and fill out the registration form in person.

Use ‘natural consequences’ to get kids to clean

Q: We’re struggling to get our children to be organized and keep their rooms clean. Do you have any tips that would help? Jim: As the father of two boys, I know how you feel! Every parent has his or her own method of handling such challenges. It’s fair to say that “discipline” isn’t usually the best way to deal with a situation like this. As a matter of fact, a hard-nosed approach could prove counterproductive. You could end up transforming thoughtless irresponsibility into premeditated rebellion. We recommend you take full advantage of “natural consequences.” Use masking tape to mark off a boundary at the doors of your kids’ rooms, between their personal “messyzone” and the rest of the house. Then say, “Inside the messyzone, you can do as you please. But if you want anything that’s been left on the floor outside the messyzone, make sure you pick it up before bedtime. After that, it will be con-



fiscated and placed in quarantine until you have enough money to buy it back. The going price is $1.” If nothing else, this is a good way to reduce clutter in the house. It can also provide you with a handy fund for a family pizza night. The mess inside their rooms will likely disappear when they get tired of it and when they realize you’re not going to hound them into doing the job. If these strategies don’t work, consider whether there might be something more serious going on. Our counseling team notes that there can be physical or emotion-

They needed to know for themselves what’s actually in a film, so they could make wise choices for their children. As such, our Plugged In website ( can be your one-stop destination for anything playing at your local theater. Each review contains information about a film’s overall themes and messages, as well as details about sexuality, crude language, violence, drugs and alcohol. There’s also an archive of past reviews of movies that are now on DVD or streaming online. We offer similar evaluations of music, TV shows and video games.

Hot Wheels: Subaru unveils its first hybrid

AP Photo

This photo provided by Subaru shows the Subaru 2014 XV Crosstrek Hybrid unveiled Thursday at the New York International Auto Show.

NEW YORK (AP) — Subaru is coming out with a gas-electric hybrid crossover SUV for the crunchy granola crowd that wants to save fuel but still haul

kayaks to the river. The Japanese brand, which specializes in all-wheel-drive vehicles, unveils the 2014 XV Crosstrek Hybrid on Thursday at

the New York International Auto Show. The company’s first gas-electric hybrid gets somewhat better gas mileage than the conventional Crosstrek and has stop-start technology that shuts down the engine at red lights to save fuel. It has all-wheel-drive capability and the same 8.7-inch ground clearance so it can go on trails. Subaru also will unveil a concept WRX high-horsepower compact car that strongly hints at what the next generation pocketrocket will look like. The company says this WRX is lower, sleeker and wider with a bigger grille, while it keeps the classic hood scoop with clearance for a new turbocharged engine and air cooler. Subaru didn’t say when the new WRX would hit showrooms or give further details. Here are the highlights of the XV Crosstrek Hybrid: UNDER THE HOOD: A 2-liter Boxer engine with 148 horsepow-

er, plus a 13.4 horsepower electric motor and a continuously variable transmission that keeps the engine revving in an optimal range for gas mileage and power. The 13.5 kilowatt nickel-metalhydride battery is under the rear floor, while the electric motor is under the hood just behind the transmission. The hybrid version weighs about 300 pounds more than the gas version. The electric motor starts the car under light acceleration and starts the gas engine once the car is moving. The car can run on electricity alone in low-speed situations. OUTSIDE: The gas-electric model has hybrid badges on the front edges of the front doors and tailgate and different wheels and tail lamps. Also has a new green pearl exterior color exclusive to the hybrid. The front grille shutter system cuts wind drag at highway speeds. INSIDE: Passenger cabin is slightly smaller (0.7 cubic feet),

as is the cargo space of the hatchback. It’s about 2 cubic feet less at just over 50 cubic feet. Hybrid instrument cluster with a blue color scheme, and blue-andsilver interior. GAS MILEAGE: Subaru expects 28 miles per gallon in the city and 34 mpg on the highway. That’s three miles per gallon better in the city than the gas version with an automatic transmission, but only one mpg better on the highway. PRICE: Will be announced closer to the car’s arrival at dealerships in the fall of this year. CHEERS: Subaru has come up with a hybrid system that can still handle the rigors of going off the road. JEERS: The hybrid system will come with an added price, but it doesn’t get that much better mileage than the gasoline version.

Google to deliver goods Update from City Planning quickly to online shoppers Director Michael Vickers

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Inter net search leader Google is taking another step beyond information retrieval into grocery delivery. The new service, called Google Shopping Express, will initially provide sameday delivery of food and other products bought online by a small group of consumers in San Francisco and suburbs located south of the city. The company, based in Mountain View, Calif., didn’t say how many people will be part of the test. If the pilot program goes well, Google Inc. plans to expand delivery service to other markets. “We hope this will help users explore the benefits of a local, same-day delivery service, and help us kick the tires on the new service,” Google said in a Thursday statement. The delivery service is part of Google’s effort to increase consumer reliance on the Internet, so it will have more opportunities to show online ads, which generate most of its revenue. Google has learned that

the more time people spend online, the more likely they are to use its dominant search engine or one of its other popular services, like its YouTube video site or Gmail, that include advertising. The delivery service also could spur merchants to buy more online ads if Google’s same-day delivery service encourages consumers to do more of their shopping online. Having to wait days or, in some cases, more than a week for the delivery of online orders ranks among the biggest drawbacks to Internet shopping. It’s a problem that Inc. and eBay Inc., which operate the largest e-commerce sites, already have been trying to solve by offering same-day service in some U.S. markets. Wal-Mart Stores Inc., the world’s largest retailer, also offers same-day delivery in five markets. A mix of national, regional and neighborhood merchants are enlisting in Google Shopping Express. The best-known names on the list include Target Inc. and Walgreen Co. All the

merchants in the Google program will sell certain items through a central website. Google has hired courier services to pick up the orders at the merchant stores and then deliver them to the customer’s home or office. Although the couriers will be working on a contract basis, they will be driving Google trucks and wearing company-issued uniforms. It remains unclear whether Internet shopping and same-day delivery can be profitable. Online grocer Webvan collapsed in 2001, largely because it couldn’t devise a pricing plan that would pay for the costs of same-day delivery without alienating shoppers unwilling to pay too much extra for the added convenience. Google is still trying to figure out how much to charge for its same-day delivery service. For the six-month test period in the San Francisco area, consumers won’t have to pay a surcharge. Google instead will receive a commission from participating merchants.

GOP moves to plug technology gap with Democrats WASHINGTON (AP) — Embarrassed by how the last presidential election exposed their yesteryear technology, Republicans are turning to a younger generation of tech-savvy social media experts and software designers to improve communications with voters, predict their behavior and track opponents more vigorously. After watching President Barack Obama win re-election with help from a technology operation unprecedented in its sophistication, GOP officials concede an urgent need for catch up. “I think everybody realized that the party is really far behind at the moment and they’re doing everything within their realistic sphere of influence to catch up,” said Bret Jacobson, a partner with Red Edge, a Virginia-based digital advocacy firm that represents the Republican Governors Association, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and the Heritage Foundation. Democrats began using related technology years ago, giving Obama a significant advantage last fall in customizing personalized fundraising and get-outthe-vote appeals to prospective supporters. With the blessing of party leaders, a new crop of Republican-backed outside groups is developing tools to do the same in 2014 and 2016. Alex Skatell, former digital director for the GOP’s guber natorial and Senate campaign operations, leads one new group that has been quietly testing a system that would allow Republicans to share details about millions of voters — their personal interests, group affiliations and even where they went to school. With no primary opponent last year, Obama’s re-election team used the extra time to build a large campaign operation melding a grass-roots army of 2.2 million volunteers with groundbreaking technology to target voters. They tapped about 17 million email subscribers to raise nearly $700 million online.

Data-driven analytics enabled the campaign to run daily simulations to handicap battleground states, analyze demographic trends and test alternatives for reaching voters online. Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney, in contrast, had only a few months after a lengthy primary fight to try to match Obama’s tech advantage. He couldn’t make up the difference. Romney’s technology operation was overwhelmed by the intense flow of data and temporarily crashed on Election Day. A 100-page report on how to rebound from the 2012 election, released last week by Republican Party Chairman Reince Priebus, includes several technology recommendations. “The president’s campaign significantly changed the makeup of the national electorate and identified, persuaded and tur ned out low-propensity voters by unleashing a barrage of human and technological resources previously unseen in a presidential contest,” the report said. “Marrying grass-roots politics with technology and analytics, they successfully contacted, persuaded and turned out their margin of victory. There are many lessons to be learned from their efforts, particularly with respect to voter contact.” Skatell, 26, is leading one new effort by Republican allies to fill the void. His team of designers, software developers and veteran Republican strategists is now testing what he calls an “almost an eHarmony for matching volunteers with persuadable voters” that would let campaigns across the country share details in real time on voter preferences, harnessing social media like Facebook and Twitter. Other groups are working to improve the GOP’s data and digital performance. The major Republican ally, American Crossroads, which spent a combined $175 million on the last election with its sister organization, hosted private meet-

Drawing from technology experts in Silicon Valley, the organization helped craft a series of recommendations expected to be rolled out later this year. “A good action plan that fixes our deficiencies and identifies new opportunities can help us regain our advantage within a cycle or two,” said Crossroads spokesman Jonathan Collegio. A prominent group of Republican aides has also formed America Rising, a company that will have a companion “super” political action committee that can raise unlimited contributions without having to disclose its donors. Its purpose is to counter Democratic opposition research groups, which generated negative coverage of Romney and GOP candidates last year. America Rising will provide video tracking, opposition research and rapid response for campaign committees, super PACs and individual candidates’

campaigns but does not plan to get involved in GOP primaries. It will be led by Matt Rhoades, who served as Romney’s campaign manager, and Joe Pounder, the research director for the Republican National Committee. Running its super PAC will be Tim Miller, a former RNC aide and spokesman for former GOP presidential candidate Jon Huntsman. Romney and several Republican candidates were monitored closely by cameratoting Democratic aides during the campaign, a gap that Miller said American Rising hopes to fill on behalf of Republicans. Brad Woodhouse, a spokesman for the Democratic National Committee, said his party has “a several years’ lead on data and analytics infrastructure and we’re not standing still.” Of the GOP effort, Woodhouse said, “We don’t see them closing the gap anytime soon.

NYC aquarium rebounds, rebuilds NEW YORK (AP) — The New York Aquarium has cherished its big-city setting by the sea for half a century. But the ocean that is the aquarium’s lifeblood dealt it a shattering blow last fall. Superstorm Sandy’s surge overran carefully calibrated tanks with oily, debris-filled water, knocked out even backup power to all the exhibits and made it impossible to check on some of them for days. Managers contemplated shipping animals away and wondered whether the institution itself could survive in its spot on Coney Island. Five months later, more than 80 percent of the collection is intact, and visitors should be able to see walruses, angelfish, otters and others when about half the aquarium reopens late spring. A planned expansion remains on track, now coupled with rebuilding and floodproofing an institution that aims to be an object lesson in enduring on the shore. “I don’t think we could abandon this facility. Not that we didn’t think about it — we thought through everything,” aquarium Director Jon Forrest Dohlin said this week as he stood amid pipes and cables in a now-empty jellyfish exhibit. “We want to be here, and we also want to be able to talk to the community about what we did, how we handled this, and how the city of New York can start to look toward the future of living in this coastal environment.” As he walked through the 14-acre grounds, penguins watched like squat sentries from their outdoor habitat. Walruses snoozed as sea lions arced through the air on their trainers’ cues, staying in practice for shows to resume in a few months. Angelfish and other tropical species shimmered around a coral reef and hefty pacu, a fruit-eating piranha relative, hovered in an Amazonian display in the one building where exhibit space was not flooded. But the effects of the Oct. 29 storm were still starkly visible elsewhere. The floor was torn out of a building that houses jellyfish, seahorses, lungfish and other unusual creatures. Many were still there but set to start moving next month to other aquariums while their facility is rebuilt. The open pool in front of it was drained dry; it housed hundreds of freshwater koi that died in the saltwater surge. Sharks, sea turtles and rays circled serenely in a tank in the aquarium’s veterinary hospital. They’re healthy but were shuttled there after the storm put an exclamation point on plans to reinvent their exhibit. Nearby, the gutted cafeteria still has “Happy Halloween!” signs on its windows.

The aquarium was founded in 1896 in lower Manhattan. It moved in 1957 to Coney Island, a faded seaside playground now striving for rebirth. Drawing more than 750,000 visitors a year, it’s “the economic engine for Coney Island,” says City Councilman Domenic Recchia Jr., who represents the area. Aquariums are often built by the water and have proven vulnerable to hurricanes. New Orleans’ Audubon Aquarium of the Americas lost thousands of fish when generators failed after Hurricane Katrina in 2005. It reopened about five months later. In Galveston, Texas, Hurricane Ike’s storm surge in 2008 killed about threequarters of the fish in Moody Gardens’ rainforest exhibit, General Manager Robert Callies said. The exhibit reopened in 2011 after bringing back hundreds of birds, reptiles and mammals sent to other zoos after the storm. At the New York Aquarium, Sandy’s surge coursed through air-intake vents in flood doors under the Coney Island boardwalk, punched through sand into the parking lot and rushed in from the parking lot after a creek over flowed blocks away.

Painted Canyon overlook in N.D. to stay closed

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — The popular Painted Canyon scenic overlook area in southwestern North Dakota is falling victim to federal spending cuts. Officials at Theodore Roosevelt National Park announced this week that they have decided not to open the overlook along Interstate 94 in April because of the automatic federal spending cuts that took effect March 1. “We had planned to have Painted Canyon open April 19-Oct. 31,” park spokeswoman Eileen Andes said. “Because of budget cuts, it will be closed until further notice.” Nearly 300,000 vehicles stopped at the overlook just east of Medora last year. It features a majestic view of the North Dakota Badlands, as well as a visitor center. U.S. Sen. John Hoeven said Thursday he was working with Park Service Director Jonathan Jarvis to come up with a way to keep the site open. The North Dakota Republican said his staff is organizing a Painted Canyon working group that will include representatives from the Dickinson Convention and Visitors Bureau, the Medora mayor’s office, the Theodore Roosevelt Medora Foundation and state agencies, including the Tourism Division. “Tourism today is one of our state’s largest industries, and we appreciate Director Jarvis’s understanding of that and his willingness to work with us,” Hoeven said in a statement. “Working with him and the affected communities, we will try to find a way to keep this remarkable sight open so that North Dakotans and visitors from across the nation and around the world can enjoy

As the water rose three feet high in Dohlin’s ground-floor office, he watched it pour down a stairwell into a basement that housed exhibits and the equipment that keeps them alive. “‘We lost the aquarium,”’ he thought. Basements were under up to 15 feet of water. Generators were either damaged or useless because equipment needed to distribute their power was fried. The pump house that draws from the ocean to refresh the 1.5 million-gallon exhibits was out of commission, as were systems that treat the seawater, tailor it to different environments and maintain the oxygen levels, temperatures and water chemistry the aquarium’s 12,000 animals need. None had been evacuated. That would have been very difficult to arrange in the few days the aquarium had to prepare, Dohlin said. Scrambling to save the collection, 18 staffers used hospital-style canisters to get crucial oxygen into the water, rebuilt filters and pumps on the fly and called in equipment from the Wildlife Conservation Society’s four zoos. They mixed artificial seawater in garbage cans and warmed rooms with space heaters to keep water temperatures up, animal operations director David DeNardo said. At the same time, managers weighed

how much longer they had to get systems going before having to ship animals away, an unwelcome prospect for already stressed creatures. On Nov. 1, the wildlife society announced that a decision would probably have to be made in 24 hours. But key systems were at least partially running in all the exhibits two days later, and the animals stayed. The koi and some other fish were dead. But many other fish and all the mammals were fine — including Mitik, an orphaned walrus calf that arrived only weeks before. He seemed to enjoy splashing in a couple of feet of surge water, Dohlin said. A 3-foot-long American eel disappeared from its tank but turned up, unharmed, in a staff shower stall. Seahorses held on to life despite the cold, dirty surge water that flowed into their tropical tanks. Now, plans call for raising the new shark building several feet higher to meet new flood-zone predictions, moving air intake vents from the flood doors to the roof, moving electrical panels out of basements and installing full-height storm doors on some glass doors that were only partly protected. It’s an unexpected chance, Dohlin says, to improve both the aquarium’s exhibits and endurance at once. “Not to let any crisis go to waste,” he said. “That’s the real opportunity here.”

Nearly 300,000 vehicles stopped at

the overlook just east of Medora last year. It features a majestic view of the North Dakota Badlands, as well as a visitor center.

the beauty of our Badlands.” It costs the park about $40,000 to run the overlook for a season, according to Andes, which includes the cost of three staffers, utilities and custodial supplies. That amount is less than 2 percent of the park’s annual budget of $2.85 million, but the park has few options when it comes to making cuts, Andes said. “The (overlook) closure is part of the overall budget cut of 5 percent,” she said. “As we are a service agency, a vast majority of our budget is taken up by employee salaries and other fixed costs, such as utilities, supplies, fuel, etc. We have little other flexibility.” Hoeven said the Park Service needs to be creative and work with communities to find solutions. For example, he said, the agency could look to volunteers to manage the site or find a partner to jointly manage it. Andes said the park has made other cuts, including leaving vacant positions unfilled, not filling seasonal positions, curtailing travel and limiting purchases. “These cuts, though dif ficult, were made with much thought and consideration,” she said. “On the positive side, we still have 95 percent of our budget, the park is still open 365 days a year, both campgrounds, scenic drives, and all hiking trails remain open.”

Iran, NKorea, Syria block UN arms trade treaty UNITED NATIONS (AP) — Iran, North Korea and Syria blocked adoption of a U.N. treaty that would regulate the multibilliondollar international arms trade for the first time, saying it fails to ban sales to terrorists, but other countries refused to let the treaty die. The treaty’s adoption required agreement by all 193 U.N. member states, but some countries said Thursday they would ask Secretary-General Ban Kimoon to bring the final draft before the General Assembly for adoption by vote as soon as possible. Observers said that could be as soon as Tuesday. “This is not failure,” British Ambassador Jo Adamson said. “Today is success deferred, and deferred by not very long.” For more than a decade, activists and some governments have been pushing for international rules to regulate the estimated $60 billion global arms trade and try to keep illicit weapons out of the hands

of terrorists, insurgent fighters and organized crime. After two weeks of intensive negotiations, many delegates had been optimistic that consensus — which doesn’t require a vote — by all states was within reach, but Iran, North Korea and Syria announced they could not support the treaty. Both Iran and North Korea are under U.N. arms embargoes over their nuclear programs, while Syria is in the third year of a conflict that has escalated to civil war. Amnesty International said all three countries “have abysmal human rights records — having even used ar ms against their own citizens.” This was the second attempt in eight months to get countries with very different interests behind an Arms Trade Treaty. Hopes of reaching agreement were dashed in July when the U.S. said it needed more time to consider the proposed accord — a move quickly backed

by Russia and China. In December, the U.N. General Assembly decided to hold a final conference and set Thursday as the deadline. U.S. deputy representative Dan Mahley said Thursday that the United States supported the proposed treaty as “fair and balanced” and looked forward to its quick adoption by the General Assembly. The United States, along with Britain, Argentina, Australia, Costa Rica, Finland, Japan, Mexico, New Zealand, Nigeria and Norway, backed Kenya, which announced that because “the will of the overwhelming majority is clear” it was sending a letter to the secretary-general immediately asking him to bring the treaty before the General Assembly for adoption. The secretary-general did not immediately address the request but expressed deep disappointment at the failure to agree on a treaty text. “He is confident that the

Ar ms T rade T reaty will come to pass and is encouraged by the shared deter mination to make this happen as soon as possible,” U.N. spokesman Martin Nesirky said. The Control Arms Coalition, representing about 100 organizations which have campaigned for a strong treaty, said the earliest the General Assembly could vote is Tuesday, when the chair of the negotiations, Australian Ambassador Peter Woolcott, will present his report to the full world body. The United States used the consensus requirement — which gives any country a veto — to block adoption of the treaty in July, but Anna Macdonald, head of arms control at Oxfam, said “now it’s come back to bite them, because the U.S. now wants this treaty agreed on but have found themselves blocked by Iran, North Korea and Syria.” She added, “There’s no doubt that if the treaty was put to a vote there

would have been a huge majority in favor of it — and I think there will be next week when the General Assembly votes.” U.S. Assistant Secretary of State Tom Countryman said the United States would like to see many countries ratify the treaty, because that’s what will make it effective. The draft treaty would not control the domestic use of weapons in any country, but it would require all countries to establish national regulations to control the transfer of conventional arms, parts and components and to regulate arms brokers. It would prohibit states that ratify the treaty from transferring conventional weapons if they violate arms embargoes or if they promote acts of genocide, crimes against humanity or war crimes. The final draft made the human rights provision even stronger, adding that the export of conventional arms should be prohibited if they could be used in

attacks on civilians or civilian buildings such as schools and hospitals. In considering whether to authorize the export of ar ms, the draft says a country must evaluate whether the weapon would be used to violate international human rights or humanitarian laws or be used by terrorists or organized crime. The final draft would allow countries to determine whether the weapons transfer would contribute to or under mine peace and security. The draft would also require parties to the treaty to take measures to prevent the diversion of conventional weapons to the illicit market. Iran’s U.N. Ambassador Mohammad Khazaee said the draft treaty has “many legal flaws and loopholes,” is “hugely susceptible to politicization and discrimination” and ignores the “legitimate demand” to prohibit the transfer of arms to those who commit aggression.
