On a bright, crisp autumn morning, Roswell saluted military servicemen and servicewomen with its 10th annual Veterans Day Parade up North Main Street. Shortly after 10 a.m. on Saturday, with appreciative crowds lining the way, 50 automobiles and floats, more than 100 motorcycles and sturdy legs aplenty carried military veterans, Youth ChalleNGe cadets, distinguished veteran supporters and four Roswell school bands up the hill from the Chaves

County Courthouse to 19th Street. As she lamented the fact that Chaves County’s two Bataan Death March survivors were too ill to attend, Rita Kane-Doerhoefer, the unofficial “lineup person” on the Veterans Day Parade committee, sounded a clear message for the day: It’s all about the veterans. Wearing her father’s beaver -collared jacket from World War II and her late husband’s Ar my boots, she acknowledged the efforts that made the celebration possible — the See PARADE, Page A3

Access into the Chaves County Courthouse just got a little bit easier. A new external elevator was installed near the front entrance of the building last week after five years of complaints from disabled citizens. The elevator, tucked into a corner on the east side of the building, provides an alternative to the 190-foot ramp that meets Americans with Disabilities Act requirements, but nevertheless was considered a source of agony for people in wheelchairs and on crutches. “There was no rest area,” said Richard Kaminski, 70, a member of the New Mexico Governor’s Commission on Disability who filed a complaint with the U.S. Department of Justice after he had trouble getting up the ramp with his cane. “Once you started that ramp, you had to go all the way. There was no place to sit down. ... It was just too far for me.” Originally, Chaves County requested both a ramp and an elevator, but the state did not provide additional funding for an elevator. The ramp, built in 2005, cost roughly $200,000. Funding for the new

MIDLAND, Texas (AP) — A commission overseeing low-level radioactive waste disposal in Texas voted Saturday to publish proposed rules that would guide the importation of nuclear waste from across the country for burial near the New Mexico line. The Texas Low-Level Radioactive Waste Disposal Compact Commission voted 5-2 to publish the revised rules in the Texas Registry and allow for a 30-day comment period. Bob Gregory, who voted against publishing the rules now, said he wanted a longer comment period and felt the commission was rushing. “I am convinced that this is too much, too

They volunteer 40,000 to 45,000 hours of their time every year, which equates to about $900,000 of free work. Who are they? Chaves County senior citizens. For 35 years, Chaves County RSVP, a United Way agency, has connected seniors with non-profit organizations throughout the region. Seniors spend their time working at other United Way agencies, in

addition to places like Bitter Lake National Wildlife Refuge and Roswell Museum and Art Center. “What the purpose is, for RSVP, is to encourage an active lifestyle for senior citizens, while meeting community needs,” Jess Merrit, Chaves County RSVP program director, said. “We work with 40 non-profits in the community and health care agencies. We encourage seniors to get out of the house, and to contribute all of those wonderful life skills and

things that they’ve learned, by giving back to the community — by volunteering in these organizations.” The current roster of seniors has completed about 400,000 hours (44 years) of service over the equivalent of 1,300 years. “They’ve got the years of experience and the skills and the free time on their hands,” Sheri Jones, Chaves County RSVP volunteer coordinator, said. “It’s really good for seniors to stay both physically and mentally active.”

Chaves County RSVP works with the National Corporation for Community Service through AmeriCorps. The organization’s main goal is to encourage an active life for seniors. “Seniors who are actively engaged have lower rates of suicide, health problems, dementia and Alzheimers,” Merrit said. The organization, like many other non-profits in the area, is absorbing the impact of the recession. In See RSVP, Page A3

soon, too fast — if at all,” Gregory said. “There are far too many questions remaining.” Commission Chairman Michael Ford disagreed, saying the panel has not moved too quickly and that the process has been thorough. If the proposed rules are adopted, low-level radioactive waste from 36 other states will be dumped in a remote region of West Texas along with waste from Texas and Ver mont, which make up the compact. Requests for importation would be considered on a case-by-case basis. The rules were expected to be posted in the Texas Register within a

An RDR–Bartlett family tradition continues on JOE D. MOORE RECORD STAFF WRITER

At midnight, the time she had once awakened to go roll newspapers, Fredda Sanders’ eyes would still shoot open. Long after her family gave up delivering the Roswell Daily Record, her body still made ready to help with the paper route. Two years later, its effects still linger. “It took a while, but you get past that,” she says of moving on. “The memories are always there.” For Sanders, her mother, Clora Bartlett, and the rest of the Bartlett family, many of those fond memories are associated with the man who was a fixture on the route for 20 years. man, Fred That Bartlett, Sanders’ father and Clora’s husband, died Dec. 26. With the one-year anniversary of his death approaching, the emotion surrounding Bartlett and his connection to the Daily Record is rekindled. Sanders, who helped with the route for all 43 years it was in the family, recently came by the Daily Record’s offices on North Main Street and quickly slipped into storytelling. There were serious stories. Sanders talked about the old Record of fices

bur ning in the early 1970s. She recalls having to wait late into the night for newspapers to be delivered from Hobbs, where they were printed while the Record’s press was out of commission. Another time, Clora’s vehicle slipped into reverse after she got out to retrieve a paper that didn’t make it over the fence. Ultimately, as she struggled to shift the moving vehicle into park, she was run over twice and her back was broken. Sanders offered lighter stories, too. Before cellular phones, Fred and Clora, each driving and delivering a separate part of the route, communicated via CB radios. Fred, who retired from the Holsum Baking Co. before his days with the newspaper, used the alias “Baker Man.” Clora went by “Lady Gold Dust,” while Sanders was “Baker’s Daughter.” And there was Sanders’ 1-month-old daughter tagging along for the route, riding in a little cardboard box. Fred Bartlett developed the dependability and integrity that characterized all of his work during his tenure with the 3rd Army’s 4th Armored Division at the Battle of the Bulge and throughout World War II. With the Daily Record, through the good times

and bad, rain, sleet or shine, he remained a stalwart. Bartlett earned, according to Sanders, Carrier of the Month honors several times. On a fall Saturday night in 1981, he passed out on the job — in a portentous sign of the health problems that were to come. The next day he was back on the route. Bob Beck, the newspaper’s owner, introduced Bartlett as the “most reliable carrier” he’d ever had, Sanders remembers. In 2005, Clora and Fred handed over the route to Sanders’ older daughter, Melissa McKelvey. Two-and-a-half years later, after four decades of teaching a long line of Bartletts about work ethic and responsibility, McKelvey became a manager at a restaurant and the “family dynasty” passed out of the Bartlett family. “It was like losing part of the family,” Sanders recalls. “Even though it wasn’t a person, it was something that was part of your life.” After a short hiatus, the Bartletts and the Daily Record are together again. Joshua McKelvey and McKelvey, Jeremie Sanders’ grandsons, work in the Record’s pressroom and distribution department, respectively.

House GOP sticks with Taylor as top leader

ALBUQUERQUE (AP) — House Republicans are sticking with their leadership team headed by Rep. Tom Taylor of Farmington. Taylor was re-elected as GOP leader Saturday during a caucus meeting in Albuquerque. He defeated challenger Larry Larranaga of Albuquerque. Rep. Keith Gardner, of Roswell, was re-elected as GOP whip and Rep. Anna Crook, of Clovis, was

retained as caucus chairwoman. Republicans picked up eight seats in the general election, which means Democrats will have a narrow 37-33 majority when the Legislature convenes on Jan. 18. Gardner said there was

Mental illness may be more physical than emotional JESSICA PALMER RECORD STAFF WRITER

Most experts agree that mental illness affects the blood chemistry. Indeed it may be chemical in origin. Dr. Ron Anderson of the Life Link T raining Institute says the sufferer should no more be blamed for having the disease than the diabetic can be blamed for having diabetes. In fact, the family members of the diabetic are told to look for changes in mood or behavior as symptomatic of changes in blood sugar. The National Institute of Mental Health studies indicate the individual suffering from depression will reveal a blood chemistry different from the normal values. Some psychologists believe that the faulty blood chemistry actually causes the disease. Schizophrenia in women is often triggered by childbirth, indicating that psychosis may be associated with hormones. Thus, mental illness could be viewed as a physical illness with specific physical origins. The stigma often associated with it further isolates the individual, exacerbating the disease, says

couple of weeks. The comment period begins then. Dallas-based Waste Control Specialists, which operates the facility, has yet to receive final approval from Texas environmental regulators for construction of the disposal site. That should come within the next month, company president Rodney Baltzer said. The company got its license to dispose of lowlevel nuclear waste last year. “We’re very pleased,” Baltzer said after Satur-

Jesse Chavez, community service manager for New Mexico Behavioral Health Collaborative. Anderson says that more than 60 percent of all sufferers, if they seek medical help, will only describe the physical symptoms and not mention any changes in mood or behavior. Chavez outlined the services available in New Mexico. “Locally, we have Sunrise Mental Health. There’s only one mental health facility for the indigent, in Las Vegas. New Mexico has two facilities for adolescents, in Mesilla and Albuquerque. And the University of New Mexico is available for children.” New Mexico’s Department of Behavioral Health is adopting a program originally developed in Australia, called Mental Health First Aid. It provides medical personnel a means for dealing with mental health emergencies with people who are in the acute phase of a mental health disorder. It is not a treatment formula, which requires professional training, but something devised for the individual coping with an emergency, Anderson said. It goes under the acronym, ALGEE.

A stands for “assess.” Assess for self harm or suicide. If the person has suicidal thoughts or has devised a plan for suicide, then the individual needs to be referred to a professional. L means listen without judging. This is no time for lectures about “keeping a stiff upper lip” or “pulling oneself up by the bootstraps.” Sometimes a friendly ear can avert a crisis, or suicide. Give reassurance and infor mation. Refer the individual to the appropriate agency for help, and probably one of the most reassuring pieces of information one can give is that mental health issues need not be permanent. Give facts, not platitudes. Encourage the person to get appropriate help. Encourage the individual to help himself and to find support strategies, such as peer support groups. Self-help includes finding things that are easy and affordable, such as exercise. One recommended “self-treatment” is to get out in bright light early in the morning. Read about the disorder. Self-help books can be found in the library, and find some kind of support group.

Arizona voters approve medijuana

PHOENIX (AP) — Arizona voters have approved a measure that will legalize medical marijuana use in the state for people with chronic or debilitating diseases. Final vote tallies showed Saturday that Proposition 203 won by a tiny margin of just 4,341 votes out of more than 1.67 million votes counted. The measure had started out losing on Election Day by about 7,200 votes, but the gap gradually narrowed in the following 10 days.

Arizona is the 15th state to approve a medical marijuana law. California was the first in 1996, and 13 other states and Washington, D.C., have since followed suit. The Arizona measure will allow patients with diseases including cancer, HIV/AIDS, Hepatitis C and any other “chronic or debilitating” disease that meets guidelines to buy 2 1/2 ounces of marijuana every two weeks or grow plants. The patients must get a recommendation from their

doctor and register with the Arizona Department of Health Services. The law allows for no more than 124 marijuana dispensaries in the state. Backers of Proposition 203 have argued that thousands of patients faced “a terrible choice” of suffering with a serious or even terminal illness or going to the criminal market for pot. They collected more than 252,000 signatures to put the measure on the ballot — nearly 100,000 more than required.

emony. In between the two events, veterans expressed gratitude for the recognition. Looking out over the field of cadets that included his son and daughter, Michael T rujillo, who served in the National Guard for 23 years, reflected on the meaning of the holiday. He called the day, in which riding in a vehicle in the parade he waved and smiled at throngs of

Roswellians, an opportunity for “the country to step back” to honor and appreciate its veterans. The twoterm Chaves County commissioner singled out those who have paid the ultimate price as especially deserving. After riding in an impeccably kept 1928 Ford, Larry Montaño, a Roswell native and World War II veteran, said he was “honored to be in the parade.” The 87-year -old for mer prisoner-of-war added, “I

love to see the people out. The crowd was nice.” Billy Duran and Jerry Chavez, both Vietnam War veterans, were just two of a multitude of motorcyclists who roared up Main Street. Alluding to the negative reception many gave soldiers returning from Vietnam, Duran said, “Before, we had to hide.” With that experience, they contrasted the overwhelmingly positive recognition now bestowed upon them on

Veterans Days. Later in the day, KaneDoerhoefer summarized the sentiment of the celebrations and expounded on its importance. “We’re just so grateful that everyone came out and that it was a nice day for the parade,” she began. “It’s good to see the veterans tur n out. Without them we wouldn’t be able to do any of the things that we do. We owe a lot to our veterans.”

County general and courthouse construction funds. “We’re very excited about it,” said Stanton Riggs, county manager. Riggs, along with county

commissioners, advocated for the elevator after years of fielding complaints from disgruntled constituents. He noted, “If you didn’t have a motorized wheel-

chair, it was going to be difficult.” The new elevator can hold up to 700 pounds, which is enough for one person in a wheelchair

and one attendant. It will be fully operational by the end of next week. “I’m very thrilled,” said County Commissioner Richard Taylor. “I think it’s

something that’s needed because the ramp is a little difficult for some of our elderly people who are in wheelchairs.”

tional language in the proposed rules. One of his concerns was that the legislatures of Texas and Vermont, which convene in January, would want to weigh in on the proposed rules. Tom “Smitty” Smith of Public Citizen, an environmental group opposed to the states bringing their waste to Texas, said amending the rules once they’re adopted hasn’t worked in other instances he’s seen. If approved, the new dis-

posal site would start taking worker clothing, glass, metal and other low-level materials currently stored at nuclear power plants, hospitals, universities and research labs. In the early 1980s, the federal government started urging states to build lowlevel nuclear waste landfills, either on their own or in cooperation with other states in compact systems. Since then, South Carolina entered into a compact with New Jersey and Connecticut, agreeing to dis-

day’s vote. “It’s a great first step. We’re looking forward to it and we need it to happen.” The commission meeting Saturday was its first since withdrawing an initial set of proposed rules in June to add amendments and revisions. Ford and commissioner Uldis Vanags from Vermont said even if adopted by a future commission vote, the proposed rules could be amended. Gregory presented several motions seeking addi-

pose of nuclear waste at a landfill that later accepted waste from dozens of other states. Ten years ago, South Carolina lawmakers said they no longer wanted the state to be a national dumping ground. And in 2008, the facility started accepting waste from only its compact partners, leading other states to look to Texas to store their waste. There could be more nuclear waste in need of a resting place if President Barack Obama moves

ahead with his plan to build dozens of new nuclear facilities. Environmentalists are largely worried about toxins from the Texas site leaking into groundwater beneath the scrub brush land that’s brought oil prosperity to arid West Texas for nearly a century. Waste Control Specialists contends it’ll be safe, and many local residents applaud any expansion as a way to bring more jobs and prosperity to the West Texas scrubland.

Tough times for state political appointees A4 Sunday, November 14, 2010


SANTA FE — Being a state employee at a time like this is no fun. The vast majority of state payrollers are protected by the state Personnel Act, which prevents new administrations from firing everyone as was the case before 1961. Although classified employees know they can’t be fired without cause, they still are very uneasy during a change in administration. It’s especially stressful when it involves a change in political party as it has during the last five gubernatorial elections. Who will be the new bosses? What will they be like? Will they know anything about their jobs or will we have to train them? Or will they want to change the way we do everything around here? Employees appointed by the governor are exempt from the personnel act’s requirements and protections. Their only question is where they will find their next job. Both candidates said they




would fire all political appointees. That’s one of the easier promises to keep. Most governors do clean house and start with their own executive team. Two years ago, when it appeared Gov. Bill Richardson would be headed to Washington, Lt. Gov. Diane Denish sent a short, courteous form letter to all of Richardson’s appointees thanking them for their service and wishing them well in whatever future endeavors they might pursue. The letter produced a flurry of responses requesting a place in the Denish administration. At that time, there was no stigma attached to the Richardson

Roswell Daily Record

administration, so some of his appointees might have been able to stick around. Had Denish won the recent election she likely wouldn’t have kept any more of Richardson’s appointees than Martinez will. One encouraging word for Richardson appointees is a Martinez statement that they are welcome to apply for jobs because she wants the best and brightest employees. Martinez’s transition chairman Heather Wilson has taken some criticism for a warning that any Richardson appointees transferred to jobs under the personnel act before Martinez takes office will be fired. That is nothing new either. The personnel act has a probationary period of one year before job protections kick in. Anybody transferred in the past year still can be dismissed without cause. Reportedly, such transfers still are occurring. The only trick for the

new administration is to identify those transfers. The transition team has asked for a list. The governor’s office is about as likely to release that list as it was to release the list of 59 appointees the governor claimed he terminated earlier this year. The only way for a political appointee to play the game safely is to transfer into a classified job over a year before a change in administrations. At this time last year, Lt. Gov. Diane Denish and her $2 million war chest had scared all Democrats and all the stronger Republicans out of the gubernatorial race. It appeared safe to just schmooze Lt. Gov. Denish and not worry about moving down to a classified job. But a few state employees took no chances and transferred a year ago. They are safe. The others will sweat it out for the next year, hoping they can please the new bosses enough in

order to stay. Those who say goodbye to state government on Dec. 31, will find jobs in sales, consulting, working with the family business or any of many other jobs and start looking for a possible 2014 gubernatorial candidate to support. That’s what many Republicans have been doing since 2002. There also is another avenue. The state Land Office turns over from a Republican to a Democrat. Those employees aren’t under the Personnel Act. There will be some safe landing spots there for Democrats. And Republicans can have their shot at the many positions in the Secretary of State’s Office where many employees were caught by complete surprise when the boss lost big.

It’s time for honesty

Fiscal prudence was a winning strategy for the Republicans earlier this month. In midterm races around the country, Republicans slammed an unpopular Democratic majority that ran up a trillion-dollar budget deficit in the service of staving off economic crisis. But can these fledgling deficit hawks really hunt? There are two sides to any ledger — the cost side and the revenue side. The Republicans vow to cut wasteful spending but also vow to extend the Bush-era tax cuts in perpetuity. This is similar to the fuzzy math that got them into trouble during the administration of President George W. Bush when they enacted tax cuts and then put two wars and a brand new Medicare entitlement on the national credit card. Did these guys flunk math, or do they think that you did? Because of the severity of the recession, we favor a short-term extension of the tax cuts for all taxpayers — probably for a year. That includes taxes on dividends and capital gains. The estate tax, which expired this year, should be reinstated but with a higher exclusion and a lower rate than before. Congress also could raise taxes to the moderate levels of the Clinton administration for anyone making more than $1 million a year while leaving the rest of the Bush tax cuts in place. In the meantime, the nation needs to have an adult conversation about taxation and spending. Republicans often say they want to cut “waste, fraud and abuse.” Fine. Let’s cut all earmarks — that’s $8 billion a year. How about trimming back farm subsidies? That could save another $8 billion to $10 billion annually. Let’s cut road projects and loopholes for corporations. Another few billion. Those ideas have merit. But they amount to chicken feed. There is simply no way to tackle the country’s long-term fiscal problems without making changes to entitlements — and raising taxes. The problems with Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security are well understood. Without changes, these popular programs will trigger a fiscal crisis. The Government Accountability Office projected earlier this year that Social Security would begin running cash deficits and redeeming trust fund assets to pay benefits in 2016. If the Bush tax cuts are extended through 2020 and revenue held constant at the 40year average, 93 cents of every dollar of federal revenue will be spent on major entitlement programs and net interest costs, the GAO said in its January report. Social Security might be put on solid ground by increasing the amount of income taxed for the program or raising the age for drawing a check. Bringing Medicare to heel will be harder. The health care reform law passed earlier this year may help, if it works as advertised. But the law doesn’t do enough to control costs. Fiscal discipline requires honesty with citizens about the choices confronting the country. Despite what we’ve been told, we cannot have it all. Perhaps both parties should try something new: Telling the truth — and finding common ground. Guest Editorial The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel DEAR DR. GOTT: About three years ago, in a slip and fall, I suffered a separation of the quadriceps from the left kneecap. The surgery went well, and I have complete recovery and use of my left leg. About six months later, I started to feel numbness in the toes of my right foot. This has been getting worse and spreading into the ball of my foot. There is no pain. My doctor ordered a scan of the lower lumbar area. He read the scan and said that he saw a possible arthritic spur in contact with the nerves and that it was the cause of the numbness. He then sent me to a pain clinic, where two doctors studied my scan and concluded that I had a compressed disc that could be contacting the nerves. These differing diag-

Journalists should disclose political donations

If MSNBC were consistent, Keith Olbermann would not have been the only on-air personality disciplined for making political contributions. For those who don’t watch his “Countdown” program (which would be most of the country), Olbermann was suspended “indefinitely” after it was learned he donated money without approval from management to three Democratic congressional candidates. The problem for MSNBC was not only Olbermann’s failure to get permission, but that he anchored part of the network’s Election Night coverage. Apparently at MSNBC, the chair you sit in matters more than the



noses have left me puzzled. All three recommended cortisone injections. I went to a chiropractor and an acupuncturist, with no help. I had an electronic test of conductivity of the nerves between the calf and my toes, but no abnormality was found. I went to a university hospital and saw a foot and ankle specialist, who could find no reason for

the condition. My family doctor sent me to an anesthesiologist who examined my scan, but he saw nothing that would be helped by cortisone. He said that he would give me a shot if I wanted it, but it would do no good. I thanked him very much for his candor. Can you help me? Thank you. DEAR READER: You appear to have covered many of the bases thus far in your search for an answer. I do, however, have a few more suggestions, but first, I have some questions. What type of scan did you have? An MRI? CT scan? Xrays? I can’t determine if you should undergo more sophisticated testing without knowing what you’ve already had done. For example, if you had only an

and liberals mostly take care of their own. I am intrigued by MSNBC’s policy prohibiting host-anchors from financially contributing to political campaigns, because donating money isn’t the only way one can make a contribution. Olbermann, along with other MSNBC hosts, regularly make “in-kind” contributions to Democrats by favoring candidates and policies in line with their beliefs. And yes, some host-anchors at Fox, including Glenn Beck, do the same. Most observers of broadcast TV (and cable news) know of other “contributions” made by on-air personalities, contributions that include the types

X-ray, a CT may help clarify the results. An MRI is another step up from the CT scan. Because there is some controversy about the results, this may be a good starting point. Next, do you have any other medical conditions such as diabetes or high blood pressure? These conditions (and many others) can lead to complications, especially in those who are not receiving treatment or are poorly managed. If you’re not sure whether you have any of these conditions, now is the time to have blood work and a physical exam to rule out or confirm a possible underlying condition. Because you have already seen most of the specialists I

of questions asked and even the kinds of guests invited to appear on programs. For a conservative guest, the questioning by a liberal usually goes something like this: “What do you say to people who think you are a jerk?” Translated this means, “I think you’re a jerk, but I’ll couch it in a way that makes me look professional.” To a liberal guest, the liberal host asks: “When did you first realize you were right about everything and the opposition was wrong?” I exaggerate only slightly to make a point. What passes for modern “journalism” is something quite dif-

It may not matter at all, but it might OPINION II

Roswell Daily Record

“You never know when someone may catch a dream from you. You never know when a little word or something that you may do, may open a window of a mind that seeks the light. The way you live may not matter at all, but you never know, it might. “And just in case, it could be that another’s life through you might change for the better with a broader brighter view. It seems it might be worth a try at pointing the way to the right. The way you live may not matter at all, but you never know, it might ...” More than 30 years ago when I was a college student I typed the above poem titled “You Never Know” on a small piece of paper on my old college typewriter. I folded the piece of paper up and slipped it into my wallet and forgot about it. It was years later, after I had graduated and settled into my career that I found this faded piece of paper again one day when I was cleaning out my wallet. Sometimes it is the little things that matter most. Sometimes it is things that go unnoticed that can have a major impact on the life of another. Let me keep today’s column light and let’s have some fun. As I was leaving Baylor University last month with my wife, I told her that our traveling home from Waco together on that day was thanks to a guy named Gary. She looked at me puzzled and asked me, “Who is Gary?”

I was thinking through the chain of events that led me to traveling back from Baylor and to where I am today. The chain involves both events and people. Let me explain how God put it all together. Everyone’s chain of events begins with their parents, the same with me. My parents brought me up with the motivation and expectation that I would go to college after graduating from high school. My senior year I knew I would attend somewhere, I just didn’t know where. I was accepted at about a half dozen schools, mostly in California, the state where I lived. As I was narrowing the list, my older brother Chuck’s best friend, Gary, decided he would attend graduate school at Baylor in Waco, Texas, and he asked my brother if he wanted to move from Southern California to Waco to be his roommate. Although I had never been to Texas before and had never heard of Baylor, I applied to Baylor, got accepted, received financial assistance, accepted a spot in the freshman class and traveled to

ferent from what I remember growing up. Mentors from my days as a copyboy at NBC News in Washington look at me now from black-and-white photos on my office wall. Most of their names would not be familiar to people younger than 40, unless they studied the history of the profession. Among them are Martin Agronsky, Ray Scherer, Bryson Rash, Frank McGee and Elie Abel, all now dead. The late David Brinkley is probably remembered more than the others because of his greater fame and a career that extended into the last decade. These were real journalists who came to broadcast network news mostly from newspapers and wire services. They could write. They believed journalism was a calling and a public trust. Their agenda was to report facts as they discovered them. Probably most were Democrats, but compared to what passes for contemporary journalism, their politics and opinions were mostly kept out of their reporting. The cynicism created by Vietnam and Watergate began to change journalism and compromised many journalists and the ethical standard by which they once lived. Today’s “opinion journalism,” which is a contradiction, has eroded the public’s

Waco with my brother to begin my freshman year. Because Baylor had a law school on campus, I decided at the beginning of my senior year to continue on after graduation to go to law school. A law firm from Carlsbad came and interviewed me, but I wasn’t interested in moving to Carlsbad. The interviewer, Tom, passed my resume on to an attorney in Roswell named Mike who called me and talked me into traveling to Roswell to visit and interview. His firm impressed me and at 23 years of age and single I moved to Roswell to be a lawyer. A year later I met a young lady named Tanya who taught elementary school in Roswell and after almost a year of dating became my wife and best friend. My wife had attended Baylor for two years (one year while I was there) before moving back to New Mexico, graduating from college, and then settling in Roswell. The fall after we married we went back to Homecoming at Baylor and while there I interviewed a young man named Steve who was about to graduate from Baylor School of Law. My firm hired him. He had a daughter two years later and named her Katie. My wife and I had two children, the second of which is my daughter named Kelsey Brynn who was born three years after Katie. While growing up, my daughter took dance classes and was taught

trust in networks and newspapers, as reflected in declining ratings and circulation. People today tune in to programming that only reinforces what they already believe. Still, Keith Olbermann should not have been disciplined, if that’s what a two-day suspension can be called. Instead, each time he makes a political comment, a disclaimer should be put on the screen which states which politicians he favored with donations. The same holds true for all the others. Silencing people does nothing for the credibility of a network. Every network “performer” and newspaper political reporter should have information about his or her actual and inkind contributions available to the public, including any speeches given that endorse a specific candidate or political group. We in the media demand full disclosure from politicians. If more of us were transparent about our political “contributions,” perhaps the public would trust us more. Or not. Either way, what we demand of others, we should also demand of ourselves and show the way by example.

When Katie was a senior, my daughter, as a freshman, was interested in joining Chi Omega. With Katie’s help, my daughter made it into the sorority. Kelsey used her dance talents to create a dance routine for about 120 Chi Omegas to use in performing in a university competition called “Sing” held last February. Her act was in the top eight and made the cut to perform at Homecoming last month. My wife, my son, and I traveled down to Waco to see the performance.

CASA kids

Dear Editor: They have broken bones and burns. They have been locked into closets and abandoned on the streets. They have been raped and they think it is their fault. They are our CASA children. Hundreds of abused, neglected, sexually molested and abandoned children are desperately in need of safe and loving homes in order to live without fear. Every day our local Department of Children, Youth, and Families receives more calls reporting child abuse. Because the stories of these children are confidential, the citizens of Chaves County remain blissfully unaware of the horrors of child abuse that occur every day in every corner of our community. Babies are born drug addicted, children are left without food, little ones are raped and some are burned — even worse, some babies are never even held. CASA volunteers and mentors, CYFD social workers, attorneys and the courts are working hard to meet the needs of these children. However, the holidays are quickly approaching and it is a difficult time for the children we serve. Please consider sponsoring a child or even a family in need this holiday season. The needs range from diapers and toys, to food, to even providing a Christmas tree to a family who dreams of Santa for the first time. We are especially aware that teenagers feel very lonely at Thanksgiving and Christmas and could use special attention. If you are interested in helping, please call 625-0112 for more information. Or email Thank you, Carrie-Leigh Cloutier Executive Director Chaves County CASA Program

Political cartoon

Dear Editor: Keith Bell’s “cartoon” in the Sunday, Oct. 24, RDR really hit the nail on the head. Most of the political ads, especially those run by Pearce and Teague, are a disgrace to the political process and an insult to the people who are subject to them. Those run by the gubernatorial candidates are no better. If just a small part of what is said is true, the inevitable conclusion is that neither Pearce no Teague is fit for public office. This kind of campaigning does not create enthusiasm for voting and the political process. It disgusts people because they don’t know what or whom to believe so when they go to the polls the choice is not which candidate is best. The choice is the lesser of two evils, so they just say to H--and stay at home. Ever wonder why society has such a low opinion of politicians? Maybe it is just that we believe some of what politicians say about other politicians. Keith Bells’s “cartoon” calls this barrage of negativism mud-slinging, backstabbing, sleazy politics, etc. “Raw Sewage.” I’ve never called it that, but I wish I had, cause it is the perfect phrase to describe what our politicians are subjecting us to. I have put quotation marks around the word “cartoon” because cartoons are supposed to be funny. This might be funny if it weren’t so close to the truth. Randle Easley Roswell

Sign ordinance

Dear Editor: This letter is in reference to the “sign ordinance” once again. It seems as though Councilor Stubbs is not going to be happy until she gets her say with this thing. At the council meeting in June, it was voted down. Now she’s bringing it back up. I would like to point out just a few things that a sign ordinance would do if it passes: 1. Sooner or later the city will have to hire another inspector to cover all the signs.

OPINION III 2. Sooner or later the city will have to hire an electrical inspector because as they have it worded, just the city electrician will inspect the electrical. The city electrician is not certified as an inspector. 3. There will be more paperwork so a secretary will have to be hired. 4. These three things will cost the taxpayers more money, which means sooner or later, higher taxes. 5. Even though some signs will be grandfathered in, sooner or later they will have to be upgraded to meet this new ordinance, which means businesses will have to increase their prices in order to cover the costs. Bottom line, all this is going to do is cost everybody more money! Here’s the question for the council ... since we are already in an economic decline and people are already struggling to make ends meet, why would our own City Council choose to do this to us? Finally, the names of the councilors that have voted in favor of doing this to all of us are as follows: Judy Stubbs, Dusty Huckabee, Bob Maples, Steve Henderson and Jason Perry. Please call your councilor and tell them we have had enough government, we are ready to downsize! Jack Ferguson Roswell

Dems leading country to disaster

Dear Editor: The liberal Democrat Party, which has been infiltrated by socialist, communist groups, etc. has complete control of the mainstream press including the N.Y. Times, ABC, NBC, PBS, etc. and AARP. So if you listen to and watch only these Democrat propaganda stations and if you completely refuse to listen to FOX, Rush Limbaugh, Laura Ingraham, etc., then you are brainwashed. You have your head in the sand. You listen to one side of the story only. You do not want to know all the facts and then be able to make up your mind. The liberal Democrats have a majority control of the Senate, the House, and they have the president, they can pass anything they want. The Democrats and Obama are on purpose and deliberately destroying the USA and our constitution. The government knows how to create jobs and have a good economy by lowering taxes, less government takeover and regulations. Obama and the Democrats are doing just the opposite. Therefore they are deliberately destroying the USA. Why is the government taking over health care? Everything the government has run has been a disastrous failure. Why are the Democrats borrowing billions or more money from China? It is putting the USA in jeopardy. Barney Frank and Chris Dowd, Democrats, caused the collapse of the housing market by ordering lenders under penalty to make loans that buyers could not qualify for. Social Security was not originally a socialist program because it was the workers money put into a trust fund, called a lockbox. Former President Lyndon Johnson, a Democrat, had this money taken out of this trust fund and put into the general fund and spent. Now Social Security is going broke. If you do not listen to the other side — the conservative Republican side — we will lose our country and all our freedoms. Mary L. Kackert Roswell

Free EKGs

Dear Editor: I’d like to thank and commend the New Mexico Heart Institute for providing free EKGs, blood pressure and heart rate checks for walk-ins from 8 a.m. until noon, Monday through Friday.

Creation or evolution?

Dear Editor: About 10 years ago, I read in the popular press that the voters in Kansas came to their senses during the primary and defeated three right-wing Republican candidates who supported the previous year’s board decision to remove evolution from school curricula. The November ballot carried candidates who pledge to reinstate evolution in the science teaching standards. Thank you for common sense! In view of scientific accomplishment, it is alarming that fundamentalists assume the world’s biologists, geologists, physicists and astronomers are all wrong. What must their world view be? That the earth is flat? Why would a creator make 2,000 species of fruit flies and put one-fourth of them only in the Hawaiian Islands? Were Adam and Eve created with all of man’s parasites, including syphilis, herpes and AIDS, already in place? Surely, these things are more intelligently explained by evolution. Creationism has no

explanatory powers, no application for future investigation, no way to advance knowledge, and no way to lead to new discoveries. As far as science is concerned, creationism is a sterile concept. Most fundamentalists identify with an ultraconservative political movement. They long for the return of a more moral America that may never have been. All around them, they see what they perceive as declining morality and spirituality, as evidenced by pornography, crime, drug abuse, abortion, feminism, Atheism, liberalism and all sorts of other threatening “isms.” They reason that if humans share ancestry with the other animals, we have no reason to behave as anything other than animals. This view neglects the fact that humans contemplate the consequences of their own actions, that there is lots of good in the world, and that crime existed long before the Bible. Evolutionary theory is not a license to run amok, and neither is the literal interpretation of the Bible a guarantor of moral behavior. Tim W. Daniel (Humanist) Roswell


Militants assault NATO base in eastern Afghanistan Roswell Daily Record

KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) — A group of would-be suicide bombers tried to storm a major NATO base in eastern Afghanistan early Saturday but were repelled before they could enter, officials said. The Taliban claimed responsibility for the attack — their second assault on the NATO base and an adjoining airport outside Jalalabad city in six months. Meanwhile, a bomb attack in the north of the country killed seven people. The militants attacked the Afghan army checkpoint outside the Jalalabad base shortly after dawn, sparking a gunbattle that lasted at least two hours and involved NATO helicopters firing from overhead, said Sgt. Abdullah Hamdard, a national army commander at the site. A spokesman for the Nangarhar provincial government, Ahmad Zia Abdulzai, confirmed the attack and said eight assailants were killed — including two who were wearing explosives vests. Taliban spokesman Zabiullah Mujahid said there were 14 attackers and that 11 of them were killed, though the insurgent group typically gives inflated numbers. NATO forces said in a statement that the base received fire but initial reports indicated no foreign or Afghan forces were killed.

Sunday, November 14, 2010

An Associated Press photographer at the scene saw three dead bodies laid out, all in Afghan army uniforms, which militants often wear as a disguise. An AK-47 assault rifle, a rocket-propelled grenade launcher and a grenade were laid out nearby. Abdulzai said the area was secure by late morning and that they had killed all the attackers. In June, militants assaulted the NATO base with a car bomb, rocket-propelled grenades and automatic weapons but did not breach its defenses. Eight militants were killed in that attack. The base is about 75 miles (120 kilometers) east of Kabul on the main road between the Afghan capital and the Pakistan border. In northern Kunduz province Saturday, a bomb hidden in a motorbike exploded on a busy street in Imam Sahib district, killing seven people. The bomb was detonated just as a vehicle belonging to a police official drove past. The official — Commander Mohammad Manan — was killed, along with one of his bodyguards and five civilians, said Abdul Qayum Ebrahimi, the district police chief. Ebrahimi said they believed the bombers had targeted Manan.

Supporters await Suu Kyi’s release in Myanmar

AP Photo

YANGON, Myanmar (AP) — Supporters of prodemocracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi gathered near her home and at her party’s headquarters Saturday, hoping to see the Nobel Peace Prize laureate taste freedom after seven years of detention by Myanmar’s ruling generals. Scores of people holding a vigil were disappointed that she was not given an early release Friday night, but colleagues said an order to set her free had already been signed by

Myanmar’s junta. The period of her latest detention expires Saturday. Jailed or under house arrest for more than 15 of the last 21 years, Suu Kyi has become a symbol for a struggle to rid the Southeast Asian country of decades of military rule. Adding to the expectant atmosphere was a sharply stepped-up security presence in Yangon, with truckloads of riot police cruising the streets and parked at major junctions — a familiar sight to city residents

during times of political tension. The country’s first election in 20 years was held Nov. 7, and critics allege it was manipulated to give a pro-military party a sweeping victory. Results have been released piecemeal and already have given the junta-backed Union Solidarity and Development Party a majority in both houses of Parliament. The 1990 election was won in a landslide by Suu Kyi’s National League for Democracy party, but the

military refused to hand over power and instead clamped down on its opponents. Suu Kyi was convicted last year of violating the ter ms of her previous detention by briefly sheltering an American man who swam uninvited to her lakeside home, extending a period of continuous detention that began in 2003, after her motorcade was ambushed in norther n Myanmar by a governmentbacked mob. “My sources tell me that the release order has been signed,” said Tin Oo, vice chair man of Suu Kyi’s party. “I hope she will be released.” He did not say when she would be freed or when the order had been signed. More than 100 people gathered Saturday at the ramshackle NLD headquarters, with women cooking food and people bringing flowers to place before posters of Suu Kyi and her late father, revered independence hero Gen. Aung San. People wore T -shirts reading “We stand with Aung San Suu Kyi” and “Freedom from Fear,” a title of one of her books. Undercover police were present in force, taking photographs. Other supporters gathered around a barbed wire barricade leading to her home on University Avenue, a leafy residential area of Myanmar’s largest city. Suu Kyi, 65, has shown her mettle time and again since taking up the democracy struggle in 1988. Having spent much of her life abroad, she returned home to take care of her ailing mother just as mass demonstrations were breaking out against 25 years of military rule. She was quickly thrust into a leadership role, mainly because she was the daughter of Aung San, who led Myanmar to independence from Great Britain before his assassination by political rivals. She rode out the military’s bloody suppression of street demonstrations to help found the NLD. Her principled defiance gained her fame and honor, most notably the 1991 Nobel Peace Prize. Charismatic, tireless and outspoken, her popularity threatened the country’s new military rulers. In 1989, she was detained on trumped-up national security charges and put under house arrest. She was not released until 1995 and has spent various periods in detention since then. Suu Kyi’s freedom has been a key demand of Wester n nations and groups critical of the military regime’s poor human rights record. The military government has responded by offering to talk with her, only to later shy away from serious negotiations.

AIR FORCE ACADEMY, Colo. (AP) — Asher Clark rushed for 95 yards and two touchdowns and Air Force overcame the loss of quarterback Tim Jefferson to beat New Mexico 48-23 on Saturday. Backup quarterback Connor Dietz threw for one touchdown and ran for another, and Nate Walker ran for 95 yards and a score as the Falcons (7-4, 4-3 Mountain West) snapped a three-game skid and assured themselves of a winning season. Stump Godfrey had two touchdowns and James Wright ran for another for the Lobos (1-9, 1-5). Jefferson was injured on a 12-yard run late in the second quarter. He was tackled by two Lobos defenders and stayed on the ground. He was helped off the field with a towel on his bloody nose. Jefferson ran for 78 yards and a touchdown before leaving, but he did not return in the second half. Dietz took over and led the Falcons on a 10-play, 76-yard drive in the final 2:10 of the first half. He hit Zack Kauth with a 28-yard touchdown pass with 4 seconds left before the break to give Air Force a 21-7 lead. COMMENT OR IDEA?

Eagles fly past Panthers, take state Section


LAKE AR THUR— In championship games, capitalizing on scoring opportunities is imperative. When that title game is played against a team that boasts an offense like Clovis Christians’, taking advantage of every opportunity becomes a necessity. Unfortunately for Lake Arthur, they weren’t able to take advantage of scoring opportunities and the Eagles beat the Panthers, 60-13 in the 6-Man state championship game. Lake Arthur got the ball to start the game, but went three and out and were forced to punt. Clovis took over at the Panther 34 and after Mike Urioste lost eight yards on first down, he raced 42 yards for a touchdown that gave the Eagles a 7-0 lead. With the score still 7-0, the Panthers started their third drive at their own 34. Two plays later, Angelo Rivera tied the game on one of his patented runs. He started running left and cut back all the way to the opposite side of the field. A seal block by Jacob LeBlanc enabled Rivera to tur n the cor ner and the senior outraced the Eagle defense to the right pylon, tying the score at seven. The Lake Arthur defense stepped up on the Eagles’ next drive, forcing a turnover on downs and all the momentum was on the Panthers’ side. With the tur nover on

NORMAN, Okla. (AP) — One record at a time, Ryan Broyles is cementing his spot as the greatest receiver ever to play for Oklahoma. Broyles caught three of Landry Jones’ five touchdown passes and broke a few more school records, leading the 19th-ranked Sooners to a 45-7 victory against Texas Tech on Saturday. Broyles caught eight passes for 119 yards and broke Mark Clayton’s career records for receptions and touchdown catches at Oklahoma (8-2, 4-2 Big 12). He also eclipsed his own mark for catches in a season and now holds almost every significant receiving record at the school. “That’s a good feeling,” Broyles said. “It feels even

better to win on top of that.” Broyles had the biggest receiving day in Oklahoma history in his previous game on Owen Field, and on Saturday — in addition to the new marks he set — matched Clayton’s career records with eight 100-yard games in a season and 15 in a career. “I’ve said everything you can say about Ryan,” coach Bob Stoops said. “He’s a great player. I love his competitiveness, his toughness. He just has a knack for adjusting to the football like nobody I’ve ever seen, finding the ball and turning for it, and he’s got the surest hands of anybody I’ve been around. He just has a great knack for making big plays and consistent, tough plays.” Broyles tumbled back-

ward into the end zone after an acrobatic 29-yard catch in the second quarter and later added an 18-yard touchdown reception and a leaping 8-yard TD grab on a fade route as the Sooners scored 38 unanswered points after trading touchdowns early. Texas Tech (5-5, 3-5) finished its opening possession by scoring on Detron Lewis’ touchdown pass to fellow receiver Darrin Moore out of the wildcat formation, then got shut out the rest of the way. The Red Raiders were stopped on fourth-and-1 in Oklahoma territory twice in the first 18 minutes and then lost all their of fensive momentum. “Of fensively, we were horrible on third and fourth

Stanford hangs on for win Broncos fall, 96-87

TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) — Heisman T rophy contender Andrew Luck threw an interception and fumbled. The running backs seemed to be spinning their wheels in sand against Arizona State’s speedy gang tacklers. After piling up scores and wins, Stanford’s offense had become uncharacteristically ineffective. The defense new exactly what to do: keep the game close, get the ball to Luck for one final drive. It worked to perfection. Luck threw for 292 yards and engineered a long fourth-quarter scoring drive to set up Owen Marecic’s second 1-yard touchdown

dive, lifting the No. 7 Cardinal to a defense-dominated 17-13 win over the Sun Devils Saturday night. “When you have the best quarterback in the nation, a Heisman candidate on the other side of the ball, you just have to do your job and keep them out of the end zone,” Stanford cornerback Richard Sherman said. “No matter how long it takes, he’s going to get it done.” Stanford (9-1, 6-1 Pac-10) had to suffer through an inthe-trenches fist fight to get there. Accustomed to cruising to victories this season, the Cardinal labored against Arizona State’s speedy defense, unable to do- much

on the ground or through the air. The Cardinal defense did its job, though, holding the Sun Devils (4-6, 2-5) to 268 yards to give Luck one final chance. He came through, as usual, guiding Stanford 85 yards in 10 to set up Marecic’s bulldozing TD run with just over 5 minutes left. The defense came back out and held, and the offense was able to grind away the final 4 minutes to give the Cardinal their first win in Tempe since 1999. “I think this is the kind of game that brings your guys See WIN, Page B4


DOUGLAS, Ariz. — The NMMI men’s basketball team lost to Cochise Community College 9687 on Saturday at the Cochise Classic. Jon Marsh led the Bronco offense with 21 points while Pat Moore chipped in with 17.

basketball. When you start giving up 90-plus points, you are in trouble. We have gotten away from our defense. “It’s just a choice the team is making. Defense doesn’t have anything to do with being on the road. It has to do with flat out desire. I know they are capable of doing it. I hope they do.” Ryan Smith scored 12 points for NMMI while Mike Pinson poured in 10. The Broncos’ next game is Monday when

down. That’s what killed us,” said Baron Batch, who led Tech with 91 yards rushing. “We didn’t ever sustain a real drive. We’d have big plays but had a hard time stringing together big drives.” Jones surpassed 300 yards passing for the seventh time this season, completing 22 of 29 for 317 yards. He also had a 12-yard touchdown pass to DeMarco Murray on Oklahoma’s first possession and a 59-yard score on a deep ball to Kenny Stills. After relying largely on bubble screens that got stuffed in a 33-19 loss at Texas A&M, the Sooners

went more vertical in their passing game against the Red Raiders. “I was excited that we were going to take more shots down the field this week, and to see us doing those things and actually hit one was really good for our offense,” Jones said. Texas Tech’s defense allowed season-best 95 yards passing by Blaine Gabbert in an upset of then-No. 14 Missouri last week, but couldn’t do it again. Jones threw for 276 yards and four touchdowns in the first half against the defense that ranks third-to-last in the nation against the pass, guiding the Sooners to a 38-7 advantage. It was the third straight blowout by the home team in the series. The Sooners came up with a memo-

quish. “Well in the regular season, you can sit here and pamper them and say, ‘good try, good try,’” Lake Arthur coach Jose Cruz Porras said of those two drives. “But, it’s the championship game and you have got to make those plays. You have got to capitalize on mistakes. Case in point, they capitalized on our mistake there. “We don’t score there and it changes the game either way. It is crucial. Championship game, you have got to come through regardless. This is what you work for and you have to make those plays.” Clovis had no problem making plays as they scored 27 unanswered points and took a 34-13 lead into the half. There was still hope among the Lake Arthur faithful, as the Panthers had made a living on making adjustments at halftime. The Panthers came out rable 65-21 rout against the No. 2 Red Raiders two years ago, derailing Tech’s bid at per fection in the next-to-last game of the regular season. The Red Raiders got a measure of revenge last season with a 41-13 victory in the rematch, celebrating to the same song — House of Pain’s “Jump Around” — that the Sooners jubilantly bounced to in 2008. The stakes weren’t nearly so high in this one. Oklahoma bounced back from its fourth straight conference road loss to stretch the nation’s longest home winning streak to 36, in the process keeping alive its chances of winning the Big 12 South title. “It’s pretty special,” said Jeremy Beal.

fired up and they tried an onsides kick to start the second half, but the Eagles recovered at the 40 and two Urioste runs later, they had a commanding 41-13 lead. Porras said those three plays were daggers to his team. “It was really big,” he said of the start of the second half. “We wanted to get the ball back and we tried the onsides. Even trying the onside they got it at the 40 and either way, we kick it deep and they’d been having good returns, so why not go for it. It was tough. When they scored it was kind of like one more dagger through the heart and you are going, ‘Man, I hope we can overcome this deficit.’ “We tried to keep it close, but when we can’t put a stop on them and score, it’s kind of hard.” Clovis coach Jason Swann said that his offensive line and his team’s camaraderie led to the win. “Well you know, we have an incredible offensive line and that’s an advantage we knew we had coming

Roswell Daily Record from 8-Man down to 6Man,” he said. “We had guys that were used to drive blocking and getting to the second level. We knew we had that advantage. It is really just a tribute to the overall team chemistry. “These guys love each other and they would kill for each other. They will go out and after this game they will all go out and eat with each other. The team chemistry is crucial and as a coach you try to foster it, but there are few things you can do. But these kids just love each other, so I am blessed.” The Eagle offensive line paved the way for a monster per for mance by Urioste. The senior ran for a whopping 300 yards and seven touchdowns on 19 carries. When asked to sum up this season, Porras said it was like a roller coaster ride. “It’s really been a roller coaster ride,” he said. “I don’t think we’ve ever had as many injuries as we’ve had this year. That being said, the kids have over-

come and adjusted. They have pretty much done everything we asked them to do. “I have nothing but gratitude and thanks for them because of their performance. I mean, who practices at six in the morning all year. We’re here at 5:45 and it’s just the dedication the kids have to this program. It’s something unreal. “When I came back here, it was one of my goals to bring back the tradition. I graduated in 1995, so there was kind of a gap, where after 1997 it went kind of down. My goal was to come back and hopefully establish the program again. “That is something these kids have done. There are no ‘I’s.’ It’s we. We have done it together. Hats off to these kids and the respect and ef fort that they have put forth this whole season. We’re still going to be someone to contend with in years to come.”

Reeling Cowboys want to be like Giants Broncos want to be

AP Photo

In this Oct. 25 file photo, Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant (88) scores a touchdown as New York Giants cornerback Terrell Thomas defends during their game. A lone bright light in a dark season, Bryant leads all rookies in scoring with six TDs, four catching passes and two returning punts, including a 93-yarder in a loss against the Giants.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — Two months ago, Jerry Jones and the Dallas Cowboys started the season with hopes of becoming the first NFL team to play in a Super Bowl on their home field. February, 2011 was going to be big times in Big D. Halfway through the season, Jones’ dream has turned into a nightmare. The Cowboys (1-7) have lost their way, along with their coach, Wade Phillips, who was fired. Instead of playing at home in February, the mandate for the Cowboys is now to play hard and be accountable. In other words, play like the New York Giants (6-2), a team many consider good enough to end up in Cowboys Stadium in February.

Interim Cowboys coach Jason Garrett will get a chance to see how his team stacks up against the Giants on Sunday, when the NFC East rivals meet at the New Meadowlands Stadium. The Giants, who beat the Cowboys 41-35 in Dallas on Oct. 25, are riding five-game winning streak highlighted by a 41-7 win over Seattle last weekend. The Cowboys have lost five in a row, including last week’s embarrassing 45-7 loss in Green Bay in a game in which America’s Team seemed to quit and got Phillips fired. “Our actions have to speak louder than our words and that’s the mentality that we have to have and that was the way we discussed it,” Cowboys tight

end Jason Witten said. “You’re right, we haven’t gone and done those things in the last few weeks and so none of that is going to be acceptable. We’re going to fight, we’re going to play hard and we believe we can get it turned around, but it’s got to go happen now.” How much the Cowboys can change in a week remains to be seen. Dallas’ defense has given up 121 points the past three games and the offense can’t be expected to carry the team, especially with backup Jon Kitna replacing the injured Tony Romo at quarterback. Giants quarterback Eli Manning said no matter what’s happening with the Cowboys, he expects a typical rivalry game. “It’s Dallas, and they have a new coach and a new attitude,” Manning said. “Talking to my dad and other players, whenever a new coach comes in, you feel like you have a new season. Everything has been erased, and you can start over. That’s the attitude they’re going to have. They’re going to come in fired up and we know they’re talented all over the field. We have to make sure we take care of business.” While things are going well for the Giants, they, too, have some issues. Their offensive line is going to be in flux because of injuries to tackle David Diehl (hamstring, hip), center Shaun O’Hara (foot) and a season-ending knee injury to backup center Adam Koets. Rich Seubert has moved over from guard to center but the left side of the line is going to be relatively new with Shawn Andrews replacing Diehl at the tackle and either Kevin Boothe — fresh off the physically unable to perform list — or rookie Mitch Petrus starting at guard.

The receiving corps also is nicked with Steve Smith suffering a pectoral injury in practice Thursday. The Giants defense is healthy, although they are not sure what to expect with Garrett running the show. Linebacker Keith Bulluck thinks Dallas might try to run the ball more. However, that might be tough against a unit that is ranked No. 2 against the run, giving up an average of 80.9 yards. “We are going to prepare and expect their best game,” defensive end Justin Tuck said. “That’s the only way we can prepare. I am sure they are coming in here trying to play spoiler now. I have kind of been in that role before in my career and I know they really don’t have anything to lose. We have a lot to play for.” While the Giants are tied with Atlanta for the best record in the NFC, their postseason field is crowded with Green Bay and New Orleans at 6-3 and Philadelphia, Tampa Bay and Chicago all at 5-3. The other variable to consider is the NFC West. St. Louis and Seattle share the division lead with 4-4 records, with the eventual division winner guaranteed a postseason berth. Garrett has changed some things in Dallas already with the most notable being the team practiced in pads Wednesday. However, he needs to change the team’s attitude. “We are certainly disappointed about how our season started,” Garrett said. “What we’re doing now is going forward and there isn’t a lot of time to think about different scenarios. We have to get ready for the Giants on Sunday. Like I said before, they will present a great challenge all across our football team.”

just like the Chiefs DENVER (AP) — The Denver Broncos returned from their bye week determined to find a ground game so they could keep their quarterback clean and their defense fresh. In short, they want to be just like the Kansas City Chiefs. The Broncos (2-6) stumbled through the season’s first half with a turnstile offensive line that couldn’t bore holes for a banged up backfield or plug the pass rush that turned Kyle Orton into a punching bag. Unable to control the clock or correct their offensive imbalance and penchant for penalties, they were overexposed on defense, wearing down by the fourth quarter and losing three close games. The Chiefs (5-3), who visit Invesco Field on Sunday, are atop the AFC West precisely because they’re doing everything the Broncos aren’t. They’re the epitome of offensive balance: Matt Cassel has thrown for

Cassel has been sacked 11 times, half as much as Orton. “It’s important to have a balanced attack and we’ve been doing a pretty good job all year keeping it balanced and mixing and matching both pass and run but also getting us in manageable thirddown situations,” Cassel said. “And we’ve got two great halfbacks right now that have been doing a great job for us all year. “And that definitely helps me because it takes some of that pass rush off and you don’t become one-dimensional.” Orton is envious. “We’ve hurt ourselves so much that half the time we’re in secondand-15, third-and-12. I mean, all you’re going to get is pass rush in those situations and you’re going to get their best pass rush,” said Orton.

No. 1 Oregon edges Cal Roswell Daily Record

BERKELEY, Calif. (AP) — One small step helped No. 1 Oregon avoid one big upset. Jeff Maehl caught a 29yard touchdown pass for the Ducks’ only offensive touchdown, and Oregon got a stellar effort from its defense and a huge break on a missed field goal to beat California 15-13 on Saturday night. Cal kicker Giorgio Tavecchio erased his 24-yard own field goal, which would have put the Golden Bears ahead by one early in the fourth quarter, by committing an illegal motion penalty. The junior then missed a 29-yard try on the next play. Cliff Harris returned a punt 64 yards for the only touchdown in the first half for the Ducks (10-0, 7-0 Pac-10), who wobbled on the road to the BCS title game but are still heading in the right direction. Darron Thomas passed for 155 yards and led a final drive that chewed up

the last 9:32. It was a strange sight to see the high-speed Ducks down shift into super -slow motion, but it worked to perfection. Kenjon Barner and LaMichael James took turns with the ball while Thomas milked the play clock on an 18-play, 65yard drive. The Bears held the nation’s most potent offense to a season-low 317 yards, but couldn’t get the Ducks’ offense off the field when they most needed a stop. Cal defensive tackle Derrick Hill forced a fumble and recovered it in the end zone for the Bears (5-5, 34), who lost in Strawberry Canyon for the first time all season — but only after putting a mighty scare into their first top-ranked opponent in five years. James rushed for a season-low 71 yards in a tentative per formance by the Heisman Trophy hopeful, but Oregon’s defense shut out Cal’s offense for the

final 55 minutes. Shane Vereen rushed for 105 yards and scored a touchdown on Cal’s opening drive. Brock Mansion went 10 for 27 for 69 yards in his second career start. The Ducks had played just three scoreless quarters all season long until Cal shut them out in the first and fourth quarters. Oregon kicker Rob Beard also missed two field goals after going 8 for 8. Oregon, which hadn’t won by fewer than 11 points all season, will find out Sunday how its struggles will affect its position in the ranking and BCS standings, where the Ducks lead fellow unbeatens Auburn, TCU and Boise State. But after surviving Berkeley, just two hurdles remain between the Ducks and an unbeaten regular season: a visit from Arizona on Nov. 26, followed by the Civil War at Oregon State.

Newton shakes off troubles to lead Auburn past Georgia AUBURN, Ala. (AP) — Cam Newton did his talking on the field. Responding to all those allegations of wrongdoing with another brilliant performance, Newton passed for two touchdowns and ran for two more to lead No. 2 Auburn into the Southeastern Conference championship game — and another step closer to playing for the national title. The Tigers pulled away from Georgia in the fourth quarter for a 49-31 victory that, at least for one day, took some of the heat off college football’s most dynamic player. “I’m just very proud of the way he played,” coach Gene Chizik said. “He’s a really, really talented, extremely gifted player who means a lot to our football team.” Newton celebrated with his teammates after the game, yukking it up in front of the student section, but that would be the only insight into how he was feeling after persistent reports that his father solicited money — big money — during the recruiting process. Auburn officials refused to make Newton available to the media. Chizik went along with that theme, saying right at the start of his news conference he would only answer questions about what happened on the field. When a reporter asked him about his feelings toward Cecil Newton, the quarterback’s father, this was the reply: “I’m only taking questions about this football game, thank you.” The T igers (11-0, 7-0

SEC) will face No. 22 South Carolina for the conference title on Dec. 4 in Atlanta, though let’s not forget that game looming in two weeks — the Iron Bowl showdown against defending national chamAlabama in pion Tuscaloosa. “We have another huge football game coming up,” Chizik said. “We’ve got to get ready for that game.” “SEC! SEC! SEC!” the sellout crowd of 87,451 chanted in the closing minutes, looking forward to the Tigers’ return to the title game for the first time since the perfect 2004 season. For their secondyear coach, it was an especially satisfying moment, since many took issue with Auburn’s decision to hire someone with a 5-19 career record. “Make no mistake, our goal when we got her was to win a championship,” Chizik said. “We’ve not done that yet. We’re not going to act like we have, because we haven’t. But we’re one step closer to being able to do that.” Auburn survived another high-scoring, back-andforth affair, rallying from an early 21-7 deficit to tie it up by halftime. The Tigers kept the momentum going with a daring onside kick to start the third quarter, recovering the ball and driving for the go-ahead touchdown. Georgia (5-6, 3-5) hung tough behind A.J. Green’s nine-catch, 164-yard performance, tying the game again at 28-all before Auburn went ahead for good on Onterio McCalebb’s 4-yard touchdown run. Newton finished off the Bulldogs with

his second scoring pass of the game to tight end Philip Lutzenkirchen, a 13-yarder over the middle with 8:05 remaining. Newton rushed for 151 yards on 30 bruising carries, scoring Auburn’s first touchdown on a 31-yard run and capping off the win with a 1-yard leap into the end zone in the closing minutes. The ball popped loose, Georgia recovered and the replay left some doubt about whether he got over. But the review went Newton’s way, as so many things have this season. The 6-foot-6, 250-pounder celebrated with another leap into receivers coach Trooper Taylor along the sideline, sending the much-smaller assistant flying. Newton completed 12 of 15 passes for 148 yards, and his one glaring mistake — an interception that set up a Georgia touchdown — was actually off a deflected ball that should have been caught by the receiver. Along the way, Newton became the first player in Southeastern Conference history to pass for 2,000 yards and rush for 1,000 yards in a season. The only sour note for Auburn came in the closing seconds. Things got chippy as the teams jawed back and forth at each other, and a brawl nearly broke out. Two of the Tigers’ defensive players, tackle Mike Blanc and end Michael Goggans, were ejected and can’t play in the first half against Alabama. “I’m embarrassed by it,” Chizik said.

Edwards makes it 2 straight with win at Phoenix

AVONDALE, Ariz. (AP) — Carl Edwards won the Nationwide Series race Saturday at Phoenix International Raceway, setting himself up for a big weekend for Roush-Fenway Racing. Edwards dominated the Nationwide race, leading 153 of the 200 laps while beating runner-up Kevin Harvick by 5.210 seconds. He was that good despite missing the final practice on orders from team owner Jack Roush, who wanted the driver to concentrate on his Sprint Cup Series car. Edwards will start from the pole in Sunday’s main event. He set a track record in qualifying, and was the fastest car in all three Cup practices. “It’s already been special,” Edwards said of his weekend. “We’ve got one more thing to do, and that’s go win that race. We got the pole, the win here, it’s going well. “I am enjoying myself, that’s for sure.” He was skeptical when Roush told him to skip the final Nationwide practice, but Roush said he made the rare move of stepping in and giving an order. “I thought I should take the heat if it went horribly bad,” Roush said. So far, so good. It was Edwards’ second consecutive Nationwide victory — he also won last weekend at Texas — and his fourth of the season. Like Edwards, Harvick skipped the final Nationwide practice and was looking forward to Sunday. He’s third in the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship standings, and trails leader Denny Hamlin by 59 points with two races remaining. “It was just a solid day,” Harvick said. “Always want to win, but hopefully we can save that for Sunday.” Joey Logano, Brad Keselowski and Reed Sorenson rounded out the top five. Aric Almirola was sixth, followed by Colin Braun and Justin Allgaier. Ricky Stenhouse Jr. and Steve Wallace completed the top 10. Danica Patrick finished 32nd after a rough race. She had a tire problem after making contact with Tony Raines, but also bumped and banged with Alex Kennedy for several laps in the middle of the race.

Glendale CC 69, NMMI 56 GLENDALE — The NMMI Bronco football team closed out its season on Saturday with a 69-56 loss to Glendale Community College. The Broncos fell behind 14-0 in the first quarter, but outscored the Gauchos, 42-34 over the next two quarters, to close to within six. Glendale was able to pull away in the fourth with three touchdowns. David Vega closed out his season with 387 yards passing and four touchdowns, while Xan Mangum hauled in 12 catches for 207 yards and three scores. The two teams combined for 1,083 yards of offense. With the loss, NMMI finishes its season with an 3-8 record.

Once considered one of baseball’s top prospects, he’s struggled to make consistent contact at the plate in the majors, leading to several trips back to the minors.

Parker caps big 1st quarter, Spurs win 6th in row

SAN ANTONIO (AP) — Tony Parker scored 24 points and capped a big surge in the first quarter that sent the San Antonio Spurs past the Philadelphia 76ers 116-93 Saturday night for their sixth win in a row. Manu Ginobili added 18 points for the Spurs, who have already surpassed their longest winning streak from last season. All six of these victories have come against teams that were at .500 or under. Parker scored on a fast break that finished off a 16-0 spree. The Spurs scored a seasonhigh 39 points in the opening period and led the rest of the way. Parker shot 10-for-13 overall and had seven assists. Jrue Holiday led the 76ers with 16 points. Lou Williams, playing for the second night in a row despite an injured left shoulder, added 13. Andre Iguodala started in his second straight game after sitting out the previous two with a strained Achilles’ tendon. The small forward scored 10 points in 20 minutes for the Sixers. DeJuan Blair added 13 points and 12 rebounds for San Antonio. George Hill had 16 points, Richard Jefferson contributed 10 and Tim Duncan finished with seven points, six rebounds and a season-high five assists in 24 minutes. Spurs center/forward Matt Bonner returned after missing the last six games with an ankle sprain he sustained in the season opener. He entered the game with 5:52 left in the third quarter and scored his first points, a 3-pointer from

Roswell Daily Record



Lois S. Jenkins Arnold was born May 16, 1915, in Beaver, Okla., the eldest daughter of 10 children to William H. and Alla Jenkins. Her far ming family moved to Hager man in 1927, where she attended Hagerman schools, graduating from Hagerman High School in 1937. She furthered her education by attending ENMU-Portales. After obtaining a teaching certificate, she taught in one-room schoolhouses at Acme and Crawford, east of Dexter. She looked back on those two years with great fondness and stayed in touch with many of her students. While teaching at Crawford, she met Ennis Atkinson, who later became her first husband. They purchased the Basin Ranch

east of Bottomless Lakes and raised cattle. Four children were bor n to that union, Oleta May Atkinson (died at birth), Jerry, and wife, Sharon Atkinson, of Hartford, Ark., Daniel Atkinson, and wife, Sylvia, of Roswell, and Margaret Marsh, and husband, Dan, of San Francisco. Roswell became her permanent residence in 1959. She was briefly married to Roy Titus and later in life married Dan Ar nold, who was a kind and loving husband to her until his death in 1991. Lois was an active member of the Central Church of the Nazarene. She had an extensive knowledge of the history of Roswell and the surrounding area, joyfully sharing those stories with others. In addition to her adult children, Lois had five grandchildren, Kathryn, of Hartford, Kerry, of Las Cruces, Megan of Olympia, Wash., Annette, of Atlanta, and William, of Austin, Texas; and three greatgrandchildren. She was also close to her sister, who was also her best friend, Ruth Rhodes, and her children, Frank Rhodes, Clifford Rhodes, Jane Andres and Kathleen Har mon, deceased. Also surviving her is her youngest sister, Josephine Storey, of Roswell; and two sisters-inlaw, Joyce Jenkins, of Hereford, Texas, and Leola

A funeral Mass will be held at 10 a.m., Wednesday, Nov. 13, 2010, at St. John’s Catholic Church. Interment will follow in South Park Cemetery. The Rev. Juan Antonio Gutierrez will officiate.

HOBBS (AP) — The discovery of what could be a complete mammoth skeleton in Lea County has local archaeologists excited. The New Mexico Natural History Museum Foundation will hold a special event at the Western Heritage Museum next week during which Executive Director Calvin Smith will announce the historic find. “It is a major discovery,” Smith told the Hobbs News-Sun. “We usually find pieces and parts, but if this is a complete skeleton, it is very important.” So far, amateur archaeologists have unearthed a femur, tibia, fibula and a carpal. Smith helped excavate more than 20 mammoths at a dig site near Waco, Texas, and has found the remains of five mammoths in Lea County, but this could be the first complete skeleton. “It is a significant find

and one that deserves a lot of attention,” he said. “If we are on the bottom of it, we are through, if we are on the top of it, we have another year’s work.” How important it could be for Lea County is yet to be seen, but the potential is huge, Smith said. “When I was at Baylor, I heard about the mammoths found out in (the Waco) ravine,” he said. “There were five found. My first trip I found three more eroding out of the bank. We ended up with 23 mammoths and they are building a $4 million building over the site and it is being approved to become part of the National Parks system. “I am not saying this is what will happen, but it is certainly a possibility.” The mammoth was discovered last year by Lea County resident Delbert Sanderson, who saw the femur bone fossil sticking up out of the middle of a

two-track road in the desert. Sanderson was visiting the area to explore a different archaeological find he first noticed as a teenager more than 50 years ago. “There was this bone running all the way across the road,” he said. “I dug at it with my pocket knife and pried a piece out.” Sanderson took the fossil fragment to Smith, who immediately knew what he was seeing. The announcement of the find was delayed for several reasons, one being worries about thieves. Another was getting permission to keep the fossils in Lea County from the New Mexico Museum of Natural History, which has authority over all fossil finds in the state. Smith petitioned the museum for permission to keep the bones local for an exhibit at the Western Heritage Museum and was granted a loan of fossils

previously found in the area that are currently in the state museum’s collection. Smith will be using the fossils to create an exhibit on the Guadalupe Reef, as many of the fossils are of extinct sea animals that

lived in a small sea covering what is now southeast New Mexico. Other mammoth fossils found in Lea County include pieces of a skeleton found south of Jal in the 1940s or 1950s and a piece of tusk found during exca-

vations for building foundations at the Urenco USA site, Smith said. There are rumors an intact skull has been found in Lea County and, if true, Smith believes the find could be one of the greatest for the area.

It’s a Winter Wonderland! ~

Chaves County CASA’s Winter Wonderland helps support CASA’s programs

These trees in the lobby at First American Bank will be auctioned off to raise money to fund Chaves County CASA’s programs benefiting abused, neglected, abandoned, sexually molested and at-risk children.

Winter Wonderland Sponsors:

First American Bank Xcel Energy Roswell Regional Hospital

Trees and decor by:

This autographed guitar will be among the items up for auction Thursday.

This tree, decorated by Vonnie Fischer and the Daily Record, is one of about 50 trees to be sold in the Winter Wonderland live auction Thursday. STORY AND PHOTOS BY ERIN GREEN RECORD VISTAS EDITOR

Decked out in ribbons, bells, balls, baubles, berries, twinkling lights, garland and glitter, candy canes and crosses, the lobby at First American Bank has been transformed into a winter wonderland worthy of Santa Claus himself. But while the lobby is enough to leave even Ebenezer Scrooge feeling like a wide-eyed, excited child again, the reason for the merriment is serious — the decorations, trees and wreaths are part of Chaves County CASA’s Winter Wonderland. The Winter Wonderland auction, led by Larry Hobson, is set for 5 p.m. to 9 p.m., Thursday, Nov. 18, at the First American Bank, 111 E. Fifth St. The event includes a live and a silent auction and is free and open to the public. “This year we have more trees than ever and more silent auction items than ever,” said Carrie-Leigh Cloutier, Chaves County executive director, adding that the auction will include more than 50 decorated trees in the live auction and more than 30 items in the silent auction. CASA serves children who are abused, neglected, abandoned, sexually molested, at-risk or who are victims of domestic violence. Many of the 1.400 children served by CASA are profoundly underprivileged and have never received a gift, according to Cloutier. Proceeds from the auctions will go toward CASA’s programs — and because of budget cuts from the state, which Cloutier called “enor-

mous” and “mind-boggling,” fundraising efforts are more important than ever. “This Winter Wonderland is probably our most important ever,” Cloutier said, adding her budget has been slashed by more than $100,000 by Santa Fe. “It’s horrifying to think we may have to shut down programs. ... There will be many children who will have to do without.” But with the money raised from the auction of the trees — including a Jimmy Buffet “Margaritaville”inspired palm tree, a Dallas Cowboys tree, a Barbie doll tree and many others, plus a “Toy Story 3”inspired wreath made with Mike Hillman’s lariat, designed for and donated for the auction by 2L’s — will help keep the programs going, Cloutier said. “It feels like the community is really rallying around us this year,” Cloutier said. “ ... This community is so good to us, so good at stepping up.” Besides the live auction of the trees and the silent auction of wreaths, smaller decorated trees and other items, the community will also have the chance to step up and support Chaves County CASA by bidding on an a guitar autographed by Michael Anthony, bass guitarist for Van Halen, donated by David and Sheri Hoekstra and Louie and Neadie Hoekstra. Cloutier encourages everyone to come and have a good time. “We want everyone to come, even if they don’t plan to buy anything,” Cloutier said, adding it’s not necessary to spend $5,000 to help better

a child’s life — any amount is helpful, she added. “There will be things available for all price ranges.” In addition to the auctions, those in attendance can also help brighten a CASA child’s holiday by picking up a card from the CASA Giving Tree. The Giving Tree, sponsored by First American Bank, Xcel Energy and Roswell Regional Hospital, is decorated with cards listing gift requests for children served by CASA. Cloutier said these gifts are often for items many people take for granted, such as socks, underwear, a sweatshirt — even hand lotion and toilet paper. Anyone can come into the bank during its regular hours and choose a card. The gifts must be returned, unwrapped, to CASA by Dec. 16. Gina Thomas, business banker at First American Bank, said the bank and its employees are very supportive of CASA. “This is the big community event we do each year,” Thomas said. “I think everyone’s behind it at the bank.” Mike McLeod, regional manager of Xcel Energy, which is a sponsor of the event, said he thinks of Winter Wonderland as the event of the year. “It’s such a wonderful event, for a great cause,” McLeod said. “Anytime you can help kids, it’s great. ... People know in their hearts they’re doing the right thing for the community.” For more infor mation about CASA, call 625-0112, or log onto

Quick resolutions key to ending marital conflicts

Q: My son and his wife seem to argue a lot, usually over minor stuff. Is this natural for young couples these days? JIM: Disagreements happen in marriage, whether it’s over where to go for dinner or something more serious like budgeting or the in-laws. Every situation is different, but if you feel your son and his wife are arguing too much, you might encourage them to talk to a pastor or marriage counselor. That said, here are some general guidelines for resolving conflict in marriage, courtesy of authors Ron Blue and Jeremy White: 1. Stick to the problem at hand. Don't bring up past issues or accuse your spouse of "always" or "never" behaving a certain way. 2. Get on the same side of the fence. Don't think about “my way” or “your way.” Work toward a solution that represents “our way.” 3. Identify the core issue. Get to the heart of the problem, not just the symptoms. 4. Don't be a mind reader. Don't try to interpret your spouse's thoughts or motives; instead, ask direct questions. 5. If you haven’t reached a consensus by bedtime, agree to resume the discussion the next day. Bitterness can take root in your marriage if you leave things unresolved. 6. Avoid character assassination. No matter how strongly you disagree, attacking your spouse’s personality or character is never acceptable. 7. Never forget that your relationship with your spouse

Roswell Daily Record




is far more important than winning or being “right.” 8. Remember that love keeps no record of wrongs. Be quick to forgive, quick to admit your own mistakes, and quick to move on from the conflict. That’s great advice. We’d recommend it for any married couple that wants to reach a peaceful resolution when disagreement rears its head. ** ** ** Q: I heard a marriage expert say that men want to be asked for help. I’m newly married and pretty much used to doing things for myself. So, when the garbage needs to be taken care of, do I ask my husband, “Would you please take out the garbage?” Or just do it myself? I really don’t know when to ask for help. JULI: You’re a wise woman to be asking this question as a newlywed. Many wives don’t ask for help and end up resenting the fact that “I have to do everything around the house!” While men love to come to their wife's rescue, they hate to be nagged or criticized.

As a newly married, independent woman, it’s going to be natural for you to treat your husband as a friend as you both self-sufficiently go through life together. The beauty of marriage is that you learn to become interdependent — he depends on you for some things and you depend on him for others. To start fostering that kind of healthy interdependence, choose a few things that you want his help with. I’d encourage you to pick things he’s naturally better at than you are. For example, my husband is far more organized than I am, so I ask him to help me with things that require organization. He’s also physically stronger than I am — so when it comes to lifting heavy objects or cleaning out the garage, I genuinely need help. Your husband can also help by giving advice or a unique perspective to a decision or difficult situation. Most importantly, value the contribution he makes — whether it's helping with household chores or giving you advice. Remember, if you want your husband to be a hero, you’ve got to be willing to need his help. ** ** ** Jim Daly is president of Focus on the Family, host of the Focus on the Family radio program, and a husband and father of two.

J.M. HIRSCH AP FOOD EDITOR Until last year, I was a firm believer that Thanksgiving dinner wasn’t worth giving thanks over without a massive bowl of cooked cranberry sauce on the table. Then I sampled a fresh cranberry salsa, which is a fancy way of saying somebody chopped up most of the classic cranberry sauce ingredients and dumped them in a bowl without bothering to cook them. I was apprehensive; this was a long way from the canned stuff. But it was delicious, especially when scooped up with tortilla chips. I ate the better part of a large bowl of it as an appetizer. Still, when dinner rolled around, I had a hankering for the old school cooked sauce. So this year I decided to have it both ways. I created a fresh cranberry salsa that is wonder ful as an uncooked starter, but equally good alongside turkey following a brief stint on the stovetop.

Smart Spending: When to grab best holiday deals Roswell Daily Record

NEW YORK (AP) — Before you head into the final stretch before the holiday rush, when stores lose all subtlety in the ways they push gift-buying, you may wonder whether to pass up November bargains in the hope that some prices will keep falling. Last year, most customers who waited until the final days before Dec. 25 found empty shelves instead of bargains because stores had sold most of their stock, and so didn’t have to cut prices to clear out holiday merchandise. This year, most stores are heading into the holidays with only a little more inventory, so again few are desperate. But many are discounting holiday goods earlier than last year because shoppers remain cautious. Generally, “retailers are going out with their best prices of the season around the Thanksgiving week,” says John Long, a retail strategist at Kurt Salmon Associates. Here are some tips for timing your purchases this year. — FLAT-PANEL TVS: Particularly for lower-priced TV models, the time to act is now through Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving, analysts say. In years past, it would have been Black Friday. But retailers already are slashing prices to move a mounting glut of TVs. Wal-Mart Stores Inc., the nation’s largest retailer, discounted a 26-inch Vizio LED HDTV from $298 to $198 last weekend, for example. And a 55-inch Vizio LCD HDTV TV that had been selling for $1,098 dropped to $898 as part of a two-day sale. Don’t hold your breath for discounts on the latest and greatest, though. For 3-D and TVs that connect to the Internet, shoppers will have to wait until after Christmas for discounts, according to Craig Johnson, president of retail consultancy Customer Growth Partners. — COMPUTERS: Both low-end and high-end laptop computers are cheapest around Black Friday. Look for the deals on laptops offered online by manufacturers such as Dell Inc. and Hewlett-Packard Co., recommends Dan de

Grandpre, editor-in-chief of Anyone looking for ultra-cheap laptops should also check Wal-Mart, office superstores and, he says. — HOT TOYS: If you want the season’s hottest toys, buy between now and Black Friday because many retailers, including Toys R Us and Wal-Mart, have already discounted some of them. Wal-Mart has cut prices on WowWee’s Paper Jamz Guitar and Mattel Inc.’s Loopz electronic memory game. And prices can even rise on the hottest toys by mid-December as supplies dwindle, analysts say. — CLASSIC TOYS: If you’re in the market for evergreen toys like board games, however, definitely wait until after Thanksgiving week for better deals. But don’t expect 70 percent off on Dec. 26, either. That’s because stores want to be ready for post-Christmas shoppers bearing gift cards, says toy analyst Chris Byrne. — CLOTHING: Many stores may cut prices on key clothing items like sweaters and jackets up to 50 percent this weekend and next, says Marshal Cohen, chief analyst for market research firm NPD. That’s earlier than usual, but merchants are still trying to clear out a backlog of coldweather items after an unseasonably warm autumn. He says stores aren’t expected to cut prices any further for Black Friday weekend, but they may deepen discounts to 70 percent after Dec. 26. Just beware that you may not find the color or size you need. Regardless, a lot depends on the weather. If it warms up, stores will have to discount cold-weather items even more, says Tom Jacobson, managing director of pricing and profit optimization strategy at Accenture. Overall, “stores are really focusing on sticking to their (discounting) plans,” he said.

Obama says US, Asia will benefit from more trade

YOKOHAMA, Japan (AP) — Appealing for broader access to fast-growing markets in Asia, President Barack Obama says the United States is in the Pacific region to stay and that both sides will benefit from stronger trade relationships. On a mission to help create jobs at home, Obama noted that while U.S. exports to the region have increased by more than 60 percent in the last five years, competition has cut into the U.S. share of trade here. “We want to change that,” Obama declared in a speech Saturday at a regional economic summit. The president hopes to double U.S. exports within five years and views selling more goods to Asians as one way to help meet that goal while simultaneously creating and sustaining jobs for Americans. India, the first of four countries Obama visited this week and a booming nation to boot, has a population of more than 1 billion people. At the same time, Obama said healthy competition needn’t rupture relationships between and among nations. “There’s no need to view trade, commerce or economic growth as zero-sum games,” he said. “If we work together, and act together, strengthening our economic ties can be a winwin for all of our nations.” Obama was blunt about his reason for touring Asia this week. “For America, this is a job strategy,” he said, before rattling off numbers showing that every $1 billion in exports supports 5,000 jobs at home. In turn, he said the flood of U.S. goods to Asia-Pacific nations will give those consumers, many of whom are enjoying higher standards of living, more options to choose from when they go

shopping. “We are invested in your success because it’s connected to our own. We have a stake in your future because our destiny is shared,” Obama said. “It was a Japanese poet who said, ‘Individually, we are one drop. Together, we are an ocean.’ So it must be with the billions of people whose lives are linked in the swirling currents of the Pacific.” Obama’s speech to a gathering of business leaders at the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation forum came on his first full day in Japan and followed a divisive Group of 20 nations economic summit in Seoul, South Korea. There, Obama failed to win backing from other world leaders for a gettough policy toward China over on its currency stance and he missed his goal of reaching agreement with longtime ally South Korea on a new free-trade pact. But Obama said he was pleased that the U.S. led its G-20 summit partners to agree to develop a monitoring system to help countries avoid the conditions and practices that led to the world’s economic meltdown two years ago. Obama will attend more APEC meetings on Sunday, the 10th and final day of a four-country journey that has taken him from the Indian cities of Mumbai and New Delhi, to Jakarta, Indonesia, where he lived for several years as a boy, to Seoul and finally Japan. It is his longest trip abroad as president. Obama also planned a one-on-one breakfast meeting Sunday with Russian President Dmitry Medvedev. One expected topic of discussion is a stalled nuclear arms reduction between the countries. Obama also was stopping at the Great Buddha statue, which he visited as a

child, before boarding Air Force One for the long flight to Washington. Obama started the Asia tour immediately after suffering a political battering in elections at home, as Republicans recaptured the House and significantly cut the Democratic majority in the Senate. The president adopted a defensive tone before leaving Seoul on Friday, taking exception to questioning about whether his personal leadership, U.S. influence on the world stage or both had suffered as a result of the election outcome. He’d also gotten flak from within the G-20 about the Federal Reserve’s decision to buy $600 billion worth of Treasury bonds. Some critics compared the move to the type of currency manipulation Washington has accused China of pursuing. “No,” was Obama’s answer at a news conference when asked if the elections had diminished his clout abroad. “People are eager to work with America, eager to engage with America.” Obama said the meetings had led to improved relations with presidents and prime ministers in ways not apparent from the superficial photo ops that are common at such gatherings. “It’s not just a function of personal charm,” he said. “It’s a function of countries’ interests and seeing if we can work through to align them.” The mission of creating jobs in the U.S. is at the heart of Obama’s trip. Job growth has been modest at best after a crippling recession in which the economy shed millions of jobs, and the unemployment rate has been at 9.5 percent or higher for the last 15 months.

‘Minutes for the Military’ campaign in Roswell Eligible Alltel Wireless subscribers in Roswell will soon enjoy the benefits of the nation’s fastest mobile broadband network as they join the AT&T family in early 2011. In a joint effort to facilitate the transition, Alltel and AT&T today announced the launch of the “Minutes for the Military” campaign in seven recently acquired markets that will provide free phone cards to military personnel serving overseas this holiday season. For every eligible Alltel customer who completes the handset selection process to get their new phone from AT&T between Nov. 8 and Nov. 22, a phone card providing military members with 20 minutes of free talk time from Afghanistan, Iraq and Kuwait to their loved ones in the U.S. will be donated. Alltel and AT&T have teamed with longstanding partner Operation Gratitude, a non-profit volunteer-based organization that sends care packages to individually named troops deployed overseas, to distribute the phone cards. Customers in Roswell must choose a free comparable device prior to Nov. 24, to avoid interruption of their wireless service. “With the AT&T network upgrade well under way in Roswell, we want to reinforce the importance of choosing an AT&T phone as soon as possible,” said Leighton Carroll, AT&T vice president and general manager of Acquired Markets. “Our goal is to make this transition easy for our new customers while helping to connect military troops serving overseas with their loved ones in the U.S. this holiday season.”

To increase the total number of cards donated to military personnel and to provide them with much needed support this holiday season, Alltel and AT&T, through their partnership with Operation Gratitude, hosted a care package collection table on Saturday, at the Alltel Wireless store in Roswell. Consumers in the area are encouraged to visit the Alltel table located at the Alltel Wireless store location at 4311 N.

I am not a nymphomaniac, but I’d like to be intimate with my husband more than every other week. When we’re together, I almost feel like it’s a chore to him. Is there something wrong with me? I have never cheated on Ben, nor have I considered it. I feel this is an issue in our marriage, but he thinks I am overreacting.

Blogs poke fun at over-seriousness of home design Roswell Daily Record

AP Photo

Catalog Living creator Molly Erdman manages a web site called Catalog Living, a daily parody of the photos taken for upscale home catalogs. CHICAGO (AP) — It started with figs, on a plate, stashed under a pool side table. The caption under the photo in the home design catalog urged readers to “enjoy the comfort and ease of indoor entertaining with outdoor sectionals, pillows and accessories.” But Molly Erdman saw something else. She saw a chance to poke fun at something, well ... kinda ridiculous. The actor/comedian sat down at her computer last June and wrote her own caption. “Sweetheart,” it said, “the Turners will be here any minute now! Did you put the plate of figs under the table?” And her blog, “Catalog Living,” was born. Erdman didn’t necessarily set out to create a daily parody of the sometimes serious, overly put-together nature of photos

from high-end home accessory catalogs. She got her start as a comedian with Chicago’s Second City and moved to Los Angeles three years ago to pursue an acting and writing career. You might recognize her as “the wife in the minivan” from a series of popular TV commercials for the Sonic restaurant chain. One night, though, after she wrote the “fig” caption, she showed it to her boyfriend. He laughed. Then she wrote more captions and her comedian friends thought those were funny, too. She realized she was on to something — and as her blog entries multiplied, they started getting attention from Facebook fans and people in the design field. “I’ve gotten a lot of e-mails from catalog photographers and art directors,” she says.

Another Earnhardt builds career Bobby Dale Earnhardt poses in Rockingham , N.C., Nov. 5.

Bobby Dale Earnhardt has a name that could be an anchor around the neck of a race-car driver, expectations hanging like a career-crushing weight. That part of being an Earnhardt doesn’t bother him, though. Bobby Dale is proud of his famous name, wants to be the next to carry on the legacy his grandfather Dale started. What he doesn’t like is the preferential treatment that comes with being an Earnhardt, the doors it opens, the opportunities other drivers miss out on because they don’t have a name like his. If Bobby Dale is going to make it as a driver, he wants it to be because of his ability behind the wheel, not his lineage. So instead of getting help from his father, Kerry, uncle Dale Jr., or even his grandmother, Teresa, he’s going the do-ityourself route, working as a cook at a fastfood restaurant while trying to work his way up to a NASCAR ride. If it was good enough for his grandfather, Bobby Dale figures it’s not a bad path to take. “I’ve heard stories of how he worked his way up,” Earnhardt said from his home in Rockingham, N.C. “He didn’t have stuff handed to him. He had to work for everything he had and made a name for himself. That’s what I want to do. I want to earn what I get because if I earn it, I’ll appreciate it a lot more than people who get stuff handed to them.” The first grandson of NASCAR great Dale Earnhardt, Bobby Dale did race when he was younger. He is an Earnhardt, after all. He just didn’t keep after it, drifting away from the sport after those early years sharing a go-cart with his younger brother, Jeffrey. Bobby Dale was a decent but not great

driver when he was younger, having more of an interest in electronics, particularly computers. Someone in the family or neighborhood had a problem with the computer, he was there to fix it. “He didn’t care all that much about racing when he was a kid,” said his stepgrandfather, Jay Hudson. “He raced gocarts and all that, but he was more interested in electronics. He loved tinkering with computers, which he seemed to be leaning toward as a career. He still loves ’em.” It’s just now he loves racing at least as much, if not more. Bobby Dale stayed connected to racing, going to his father’s Nationwide (formerly Busch) races and working for his uncle. He started on Dale Jr.’s farm, then moved into the shop, where was a tire specialist, mechanic and went over the wall as the catch can guy for his uncle’s Hooters Pro Cup team. Bobby Dale also spent time helping Jeffrey, working on his cars at dirt tracks in Virginia. He was fine with working behind the scenes and under the hood for his brother, but started getting the itch to have a racing career of his own. It’s been a divergent path for the brothers since. Jeffrey’s career has progressed with help from the family. He’s worked his way up the ladder, driving a few races in the Nationwide and trucks series, and will run at the 24 Hours at Daytona in January. Bobby Dale’s start came in, of all things, lawnmowers. Not the Forrest Gump, toolaround-the-yard kind. Lowered mowers with the decks and governor removed, noncutting machines that hit up to 80 mph.

“They say, ‘We always think what we do is ridiculous.’ “No one seems to take responsibility for lining up 30 apples on a table.” This is a reference to the pieces of fruit or other objects that show up in odd places in some of the catalog photos. One of Erdman’s favorites showed a rowboat on a dock filled with pillows. Her caption: “In her annual end-of-season ritual, Elaine sent the outdated summer cushions out to sea.” This isn’t the only website like this. Another is called “Unhappy Hipsters: It’s Lonely in the Modern World.” The creator of that site prefers to remain anonymous, and thus, did not return e-mails requesting an interview. That site has a slightly different — perhaps darker — feel, with captions focusing exclusively on photos from Dwell magazine. One photo, for instance, with a man looking into stacked storage containers was described like this on “Unhappy Hipsters”: “Someday he’d remember which pod contained his sister; until then, her piercing cries cut into his practice time.” Another, with an older man in a modern home library near a table lined with stones, reads: “A steady diet of rocks and reading had almost reversed the aging curse.” Earlier this year (before Erdman started her site), Los Angeles Times architecture critic Christopher Hawthorne called the Hipsters site “the most welcome addition to the often self-serious world of architecture and design in recent memory, not to mention a pocket of satirical warmth in the middle of a soggy, recessionary, earthquake-wracked, Martha Coakley winter.” Could it be true that the recession has made people a bit cranky about high-end design? Sure, it’s possible. But Gayla Shannon, a designer in Fort Worth, Texas, thinks every trend also has a backlash. Maybe it’s no longer trendy to be trendy. “The positive side of this phenomenon is that attractive, slick, well designed products are affordable and much more available to everyone,” says Shannon, who’s also an assistant professor in the depart-

ment of design, merchandising and textiles at Texas Christian University. “The downside is that living up to the designer lifestyle also creates a transient aesthetic — the desire to have the latest mobile phone device, television, kitchen gadget, and discard the perfectly functional in favor of newness. “Fashion confor mity has become extremely attractive, and conformity is a great target for satire.” So, yes, she thinks these sites are funny, too. And so do a lot of other people. Julie Roller, a “Catalog Living” fan in Wamego, Kansas, marvels at Erdman’s ability “to make us stop and reevaluate something as simple as catalogs.” She checks the site every morning right after she reads the news online, and she likens the humor to the TV show “Seinfeld.” “I just can’t get enough of Gary, Elaine and their wacky lives!” she says. Gary and Elaine are the main fictional “characters” in Erdman’s blog. They’re probably in their 40s, she says. They seem to have no jobs, are very wealthy and have a “ridiculous 1,000-room house,” Erdman says. “Gary’s sort of the bumbling fool, and Elaine has her hands on her hips, telling him what to do all the time. “To me, they are the people who live in Pottery Barn,” she says, chuckling. Gary and Elaine celebrate holidays, too. One recent “Catalog Living” entry has a photo of a tidy to-do list that includes “DECK THE HALLS” as one of the things to do. Erdman’s tag line: “Oh, it’s not all holiday spirit. The Halls are our next door neighbors.” She says she’ll keep doing the blog as long as she has ideas. There’s certainly enough material there. “In my 15 years or so of being an actor and writer, I’ve done many things, and this was purely for fun — and it’s the thing that gets the most attention,” she says. “It’s a good little life lesson: do what entertains you. “I think people can tell that I enjoy doing it.”

Mystery deepens over disabled NC girl’s killing HICKORY, N.C. (AP) — Police were confident a freckle-faced disabled 10year -old girl was killed, but the mystery of how she died deepened when police said a set of remains was uncovered five miles away from where one of her bones was found. The bone, discovered in some brush alongside Zahra Baker’s prosthetic leg, was discovered in an area near where the family lived until mid-September. Zahra’s stepmother, Elisa Baker, is currently in jail, charged with trying to throw off investigators with a bogus ransom note. Her father, Adam Baker, has been arrested on charges unrelated to Zahra’s disappearance and is free on bail. Recently, Elisa Baker began cooperating with police and led them to the areas where the remains and the bone were found, though she has not been charged in Zahra’s death. “I’ve been dreading this moment from early on in the investigation,” said Hickory Police Chief Tom Adkins, who explained that investigators matched the bone with

the child’s DNA. “We have recovered enough physical evidence to think we have found Zahra.” Soon after Zahra was reported missing, investigators cast doubt on accounts given by her father and stepmother. Police had trouble finding anyone other than Zahra’s parents who had seen her alive in the weeks before her disappearance, and a suspicious early morning fire occurred at the family’s home several hours before she was reported missing. It was then that police discovered a ransom note addressed to Adam Baker’s boss on the windshield of Baker’s car. Police went to that man’s house, and found him and his daughter to be fine. Elisa Baker, 42, admitted writing the note and has been charged with obstruction of justice, police said. Adam Baker, 33, is facing one count each of assault with a deadly weapon and failure to return rental property, two counts of communicating threats and five counts of writing worthless checks, authorities

said. Zahra, whose cancer forced her to use a prosthetic leg and hearing aids, was reported missing by her parents Oct. 9. They said she was last seen in her bed at their home in Hickory, about 50 miles northwest of Charlotte. Zahra was born in Australia and moved to North Carolina about two years ago after her father met his soon-to-be wife online. Zahra’s friends and relatives in Giru, Australia, described her as an outgoing, happy girl despite the cancer, and said she didn’t want to come to the U.S. “Investigators, agents, of ficers and staf f who worked on this case are devastated that we were not able to find Zahra alive and bring her home safely,” said Adkins, who wouldn’t answer any questions at a news conference. District Attorney James Gaither Jr. refused to say if the girl was dismembered or if any more charges were imminent. “I’m not going to discuss that right now,” Gaither said.

Manger scenes highlight holiday season at SC abbey

MONCKS CORNER, S.C. (AP) — The holiday season arrives early each year at a Trappist monastery on a quiet bluff upriver from Charleston, S.C. In what has become a Christmas tradition, the monks of Mepkin Abbey, even before Thanksgiving, display dozens of creches from around the world. This year, an estimated 5,000 people are expected to visit the abbey about 45 minutes northwest of Charleston for the annual Mepkin Abbey Creche Festival. This year the festival, which is free but for which reservations are required, opens Nov. 15. On display are 73 nativity sets made of everything from clay and ceramic, to porcelain, wood, straw and sticks and lichen. Most have never been displayed before. The creches come from everywhere from Mexico and Guatemala to Kenya and Upper Volta to Korea. Much of this year’s collection is that of Jean and Alexander Heard. Alexander Heard, who died last year, became a creche collector after once making a nativity set from plywood. He served as chancellor of Vanderbilt University from 1963 until 1982. Mepkin was founded in 1949 although nearby Moncks Corner has nothing to do with monks and was named for Thomas Monck, a local landowner. Set under whispering oaks overlooking the Cooper River, the abbey includes a chapel, the Clare Boothe Luce Library where the festival is held, a store and gardens. The Rev. Guerric Heckel said the monks didn’t set out to have annual festivals. It started when he was manager of the abbey store in 2003. “I thought that if there is a place where someone ought to be able to purchase a decent nativity set, it’s in a monastery store,” he said. “I got a little carried away and went out and ordered $5,000 worth of nativity sets.” It was then the abbey decided to display creches. That

first year the monks displayed 10 of their own with 20 on loan from a Boston antiques dealer. “About 1,500 people came to see it,” Heckel said. “We knew we were doing something that people really responded to.” Now the monastery has about 500 creches in its collection and people are increasingly donating them to the monks. “There is something about the creche that just touches people in a deep place where they live,” Heckel said. “Sometimes people will get teary-eyed in the store talking about the one their father used to put under the Christmas tree or the one they used to play with as a kid.” He said increasingly, people are making the festival part of their holiday tradition. “The weekend after Thanksgiving they bring their family out to see the creches,” he said. “It’s quite a contrast between the malls and this and it offers them a few moments of quiet reflection as they begin the rush of the season.” This season there are some new additions to the festival. Several of the creches on display were commissioned by the monks. And this year, for the first time, there are five outdoor nativity displays besides the dozens in the library. One of those outside is made from an old water tank and the sheep have eyes from old light bulbs. But whether crafted of glistening ceramics or made of dull metal, the creches seem to evoke the same reactions. “It touches mystery,” Heckel said. “There are also the deep memories of childhood that are within us — those first Christmases that we go back to and kind of relive again.”

Add a personal, creative touch when wrapping gifts

A gift-giver’s thoughtfulness is as apparent in how a gift is wrapped as in what’s inside. “In our world of ubiquitous merchandise, wrapping can make a gift distinctive,” says Wanda Wen, author of “The Art of Gift Wrapping” (Potter Craft, 2010) and owner of Soolip, a gift-wrap shop in West Hollywood, Calif. “When you wrap a gift, do it with grace and consciousness.” MAKE IT PERSONAL Wen approaches every gift she wraps with two things is mind: She is honoring the recipient, and giving a little piece of herself. Select things that speak to you, she says, and consider the person receiving the gift. For a nature lover, for instance, wrap a gift in a big, beautiful leaf, or use a bundle of twigs for the topper instead of a ribbon. “Be resourceful,” Wen says. “Create your own wrapping paper by stitching or taping photos on craft paper, or even on a brown grocery bag.” The best-wrapped present that Leslie Carola, author of “Wrapped with Style” (Universe Publishing, 2009), ever received

was one from her husband wrapped in paper decorated with their children’s fingerprints. The best-wrapped gift she ever gave was when she was 8 and wrapped a gift to her mother in her mitten. REUSE AND RECYCLE Being mindful of the earth’s resources, as well as your own, can lead to inspired gift wrapping. “Think Green — reuse and recycle,” Carola advises. “Keep your gift wraps out of the trash. Use the tissue paper from the dry cleaners, pretty tea containers, recycle a beautiful ribbon presented to you.” Go outside and look for pine cones, pebbles, stalks and twigs. Particularly after a storm, you may find all sorts of beautiful leaves and twigs on the ground. Wen says you can “tur n any object into a gift topper using thin wire and a little ingenuity.” In her

book, she gives step-by-step instructions for creating toppers with wire, or by putting pressed flowers and herbs under clear packing tape. Susan Swan, an illustrator and paper crafter whose designs are included in Carola’s book, suggests, “Make the wrapping part of the gift.” “A beautifully collaged card or tag can be part of the gift, and may be framed afterward as a memento,” she said. KEEP IT SIMPLE “Use your imagination and your heart, and don’t overdo your wrapping,” Carola advises. Wen likes to create “high and low” juxtapositions, such as topping a gift wrapped in an imported $32 sheet of paper with a

bunch of twigs, or using a rock as a topper for a colorful box. “In our highly digital world, people want tactile things,” she says. To make even a simple gift wrap look professional, Wen suggests folding in all the edges and using double-edged tape so it doesn’t show. When you’re finished, she says, pinch the corners for a crisp look. “It’s like architecture for the gift,” she says. THINK ARTFULLY With inspiration from surrealist artist Salvador Dali, Kaaren Gray of New York created a big, black cardboard telephone with a bright pink ribbon for a friend convalescing from a broken leg. Attached was a gift certificate for a dozen dinners from a neighborhood caterer, “Call Cuisine.”

NEW YORK (AP) — Juggling to “Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds”? Modern dance, to “Free as a Bird”? Perhaps not the usual stuf f of a John Lennon tribute concert. But looking at the wry, quirky smiles on Lennon’s face as classic photos of the Beatle great alternated all evening long on a screen at the Beacon Theater, one couldn’t help but think he would have thoroughly enjoyed himself. Lennon, it’s still startling to think, would have turned 70 last month — and so even though Friday’s tribute was the 30th in a series, this one had a special feel. Produced by Theatre Within, a nonprofit arts group, the evening was a benefit for the Playing for Change Foundation, which builds music schools in poor areas of the world. Among the big names this year: Cyndi Lauper, who performed “Across the Universe,” a song she said had helped her get through her teen years. Then she recalled how, singing Beatles songs long ago with her sister, she would “be” John and her sister would stand in for Paul. “Not this time, though,” Lauper quipped, calling onstage a substitute “Paul” — none other than Jackson Browne — to collaborate on “A Day in the Life.” Earlier, Browne had the somewhat graying crowd singing happily along to “You’ve Got to Hide Your Love Away.” Patti Smith was there, too,

with a quirky rendition of “Strawberry Fields,” before striking an emotional chord when she spoke of losing her husband. Yoko Ono, she said, was an example for her of how to carry on as a widow. So she serenaded Ono — with Lennon’s “Oh Yoko,” of course. (Ono was present via video message, telling the organizers: “John would have loved what you are doing.”) Dance, anyone? The Wendy Osserman company presented a free-flowing duet to “Free as a Bird,” nicely capturing the whimsical song’s mood. The evening’s most curious offering, though, came from juggler and YouTube sensation Chris Bliss, who expertly plied his trade to “Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds.” On vocals: Joan Osborne and Maura Kennedy. Osborne also provided a gritty, spirited rendition of “Hey Bulldog.” But for sheer power, it was hard to beat Shelby L ynne’s remarkably searing version of “Mother.” In other highlights, blues singer Keb’ Mo’ came on for a quietly soulful “In My Life,” followed by crowd favorite Taj Mahal, who per for med a rousing “Come Together” with his daughter, then called back Keb’ Mo’ for “You Can’t Do That.” Earlier, Taj Mahal had joined with South Africa’s Vusi Mahlasela on “Watching the Wheels.” Aimee Mann was there with “Jealous Guy,” Martin Sexton with “Working Class Hero,” and Alejandro Escevedo with a

slowed-down rendition of “Help.” And the Playing for Change Band, musicians from across the globe who earned fame with a viral video of “Stand by Me,” made of separate snippets woven into a single performance, presented a new video — to Lennon’s

iconic “Imagine.” They also came onstage in the flesh to rev up the crowd with songs like “All You Need is Love” and “Instant Karma.” At the end of the Theatre Within’s 30th Annual John Lennon Tribute, the band was back —

along with all the artists and the house band, led by Rich Pagano, for a rollicking finale. It ended, naturally, with perhaps Lennon’s most famous words: “All we are saying,” the artists sang along with the audience, “is give peace a chance.”

Early Oscars presented at 2nd Governors Awards

LOS ANGELES (AP) — A few honorary Oscar winners are getting a jump on next year’s Academy Awards. Film historian and preservationist Kevin Brownlow, director JeanLuc Godard and character actor Eli Wallach are to receive Oscar statuettes Saturday evening at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ second annual Governors Awards. Director-producer Francis Ford Coppola is also to be presented with the academy’s Irving G. Thalberg award at the private blacktie dinner at Hollywood & Highland’s Grand Ballroom, which is adjacent to the Kodak Theatre, home of the Academy Awards. Winners were chosen by the governors of the academy’s 15 branches. The academy established its Governors Awards last year to pay tribute to winners of honorary Oscars and the Thalberg bust — prizes previously presented during the Academy Awards telecast. Academy President Tom Sherak said

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


ARIES (March 21-April 19)  Some Mondays you might not want to go into work or respond to demands. YOUR HOROSCOPE This Monday, whether you are steamed about an issue or just not in the mood for the same old stuff, you would love to stay home. Why not? In any case, you deal with people best on an individual level. Tonight: A discussion sheds light on a situation. TAURUS (April 20-May 20)  An early-morning challenge could turn into the fuel that keeps you going all day long. Never lose sight of your long-term, primary goals in situations and when making little decisions. A meeting could be provocative. Tonight: The only answer to an offer is “yes.” GEMINI (May 21-June 20)  You could be irritated by an associate. Whether you are upset for a good part of the day is up to you. Respond to an older or respected individual. You cannot escape a work-related issue. Tonight: Burning the candle at both ends.

the careers of four people,” Sherak said. “Not only were all their friends able to attend — which doesn’t always happen at the Academy Awards — those people were able to talk and toast them individually.” Sherak said he expects the event to remain untele-

vised, though highlights will be available online at and will also be included in the Academy Awards telecast on Feb. 27, 2011. Live updates from Saturday’s event will also be featured on the academy’s Twitter feed.

CANCER (June 21-July 22)  Keep reaching out for others at a distance. Express an unusual depth and understanding that many crave. If you are making a decision, follow your emotional responses. Squeeze in a walk during a break to keep your energy up. Tonight: Be imaginative in your choices. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)  Deal with others directly. A child or loved one could be extremely difficult in the a.m. Let go of sharp words and angry feelings as soon as possible. Financial pressure could be substantial. Tonight: A chat and dinner. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)  Others seem to have a lot of answers and want to take the lead. A last-minute problem in the morning could upset you. Speak your mind, but know that sugar works better than vinegar. Choose your words with care. Tonight: Just don’t be alone. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)  An easy give-and-take with associates could make all the difference in the end results. Still, if you get angry, you could be careless. Be careful with machinery. Be aware that your physical and mental state are directly linked to your productivity. Tonight: Make it easy. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)  Your ingenuity comes to the forefront, no matter what you are doing. If you encounter a problem with funds or an emotional risk, step back. Do you really need to do this? Your cre-

“We purposely have not let the outside in just yet,” he said. “We want it to be a night where you can say anything you want.” Sid Ganis, who is producing the event with Don Mischer, said they plan to “put on an entertaining show that will do what we can’t do on the big show, which is to dig into the careers of these four gentlemen.” Brownlow, a documentarian and historian, has restored several silent films, written books about the history of Hollywood and made movies about some of its pioneers. “He is a treasure to this industry,” Sherak said. Godard, a French-born director whose contributions to the New Wave era of filmmaking have been considered groundbreaking, has said he won’t be able to attend the awards ceremony. Godard has been the subject of media reports in recent weeks that suggest he is antiSemitic, and the academy received some complaints about his honorary award,

but Sherak said the honorary Oscar is in recognition of his artistic contributions, not “his overall life.” Wallach is a character actor who has appeared in scores of movies and TV shows since his career began in the early 1950s. Sherak called the 94-yearold actor “a gem” and “an artist in his craft.” Coppola, a five-time Oscar winner whose credits include “The Godfather” and “Apocalypse Now,” is being honored for producing a lifetime of quality work. “His contributions have taken the art for m to a whole new level,” Sherak said. Coppola said he felt “blessed” when he got word of the award. “It is sort of the ultimate award for producing,” he said in an interview. “I’ve been a writer, a director and I have more than gotten my share of those honors. The Thalberg Award, for me, is kind of a trifecta.”

ativity increases with a child or loved one. Tonight: Enjoy the moment. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)  Curb your anger and attempt to avoid a temper tantrum. You could be a little worn and frayed. If you can, stay close to home, and if you’re at work, minimize risk-taking. Your instincts will guide you. Tonight: Nothing needs to be complicated. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)  Though someone might make you angry, don’t cut off communication. Your ability to understand will be heightened as a result. Look to the long-term implications of an agreement or discussion. Tonight: Catch up on a friend’s news. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)  A friend might disappoint you or be angry. Your way of dealing with the issue could be to pretend the problem never happened or go off and indulge yourself. Expect only momentary relief. Tonight: Buy a favorite munchie on the way home. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)  Though everyone accomplishes more when he or she has plans or a to-do list, you seem to naturally do the right thing at the right moment. Tune in to your feelings. Touch base with someone at a distance. Tonight: All smiles. BORN TODAY Singer Petula Clark (1932), actor Sam Waterston (1940), actress Zena Grey (1988)
