Ordinance discussed at sign workshop

PEARL HARBOR, Hawaii (AP) — Aging Pearl Harbor survivors on Tuesday heard reassurances their sacrifice would be remembered and passed on to future generations as they gathered to mark the 69th anniversary of the attack. - PAGE A6




December 8, 2010

City councilors spent about three and a half hours discussing a controversial sign regulation that will likely return to the council chambers for another vote. Officials went through the proposed regulation line by line. They tossed the majority of language that caused some residents and councilors to speak out against the rules as recently as four months ago, when the package was voted down in City Hall. Councilors will likely vote Thursday to advertise a public hearing on the rules for the January council meeting. If approved, the updated regulation would be without much of the restrictions on

people’s homes and lacking limitations on the amount of signs businesses would be allowed to display. “I just feel like we shouldn’t over-regulate people’s personal property rights,” said Councilor Jimmy Craig, who was outspoken on many of the proposed rules during the workshop. “It’s a lot more acceptable now,” he said. “(But), I want to see the final thing.” Councilor Judy Stubbs, chairwoman of the Planning and Zoning Committee, called the workshop a success. The reason for the meeting was to give officials a chance to fully address their concerns, she said. “The fact that council really got engaged and asked some really good questions ... was the whole point of the workshop,” Stubbs said. “We

got, for the first time, a feel for where the elected officials are on the issues.” Among rules that remained in the updated plan are regulations on the distance between billboards and limits on the brightness of electronic billboards. However, a grandfather clause is part of the package and existing signs would not be affected. Proposed ordinances require six affirmative votes to pass. The council fell short of approving the rules in August, despite a 5-4 vote in favor of it. Councilor Elena Velasquez was absent from the August meeting. Councilors will meet Thursday at 7 p.m. for the council’s regular monthly meeting.

SANTA FE (AP) — Republican Gov.-elect Susana Martinez has asked state agencies for proposals to cut “low priority” programs and save 10 percent in their budgets as a way to eliminate a budget deficit projected to potentially top $400 million next year. The Martinez transition team made the request last week in a directive to agencies, boards and commissions, a copy of which was obtained by The Associated Press. The proposals for cutbacks will provide policy options for Martinez to use in preparing budget recommendations that will go to the Legislature soon after she takes of fice next month. “Gov.-elect Martinez believes it is important that state government look for ways to become more efficient, and setting priorities is part of that process,” Martinez spokesman Danny Diaz said Tuesday. “This exercise is one aspect of the transition review and does not mean these programs will necessarily be eliminated. This portion of the review ensures agencies are thinking critically about

Eating for a good cause

Diners at Applebee’s Neighborhood Grill on Main Street ate for a good cause Tuesday — 10 percent of all food sales benefited an agency that helps local nonprofits raise money. The United Way of Chaves County raised several hundred dollars on Tuesday’s United Way Day by teaming up with the casual dining chain. “We appreciate Applebee’s doing this for us,” Sherry Mumford, executive director of the agency, said. “They are huge community supporters.” Last year, Applebee’s raised more than $25,000 for community organizations. “We try to give back to the people who give to us,” Milby Dolen, an Applebee’s manager, said. The money from United Way Day will benefit 14 local nonprofits: The American Red Cross, Assurance Home, Boy Scouts— Conquistador Council, Boys & Girls Club of Roswell, Inc., Chaves County CASA, Chaves County J.O.Y. centers, Chaves County RSVP, Esperanza House, Family Resource and Referral, Girl Scouts of the Desert Southwest, GRADS — c/o University High School, Roswell Literacy Council, Roswell Refuge for Battered Adults and The Salvation Army.

Now, to keep Dems from killing deal

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama struggled Tuesday to prevent wholesale defections by fellow Democrats that could sink the tax deal he worked out with Republicans — angry opposition that could subject millions of Americans to a big holiday-season tax increase. Many GOP lawmakers seemed ready to embrace the Obama-GOP compromise and declare victory. The question was whether enough Democrats would join them in support, especially in the House, where liberal resentment of the president’s concessions on tax breaks for the wealthiest runs strong. Obama went on national TV to give a ringing defense of his compromise, declaring it the necessary price for heading off a tax increase that neither taxpayers nor the weak economy could stand and for gaining more months of unemployment payments for millions of jobless workers. The compromise plan would extend unemployment benefits for millions of people, and reduce Social Security payroll taxes for a year. Workers would pay a 4.2 percent tax rate instead of 6.2 percent. Democratic leaders in the House criticized the tax plan, sometimes harshly, but stopped short of saying they would try to block it. In a 35-minute news conference, Obama chastised liberals for seeking ideological purity that would cause legislative logjams on vital issues. He didn’t spare Republicans, either, likening them to “hostage takers” willing to hurt the great majority of Americans for the “holy grail” of extending tax cuts for millionaires. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was noncommittal

•Police were called to the 700 block of South Union Avenue on Monday, following a burglary. The victim left his residence around noon on Sunday and returned around midnight to find a 55-inch Sony LCD television, a Sony PS3 game system, a game left in the device and an Ecko watch were missing.

before and after Obama’s afternoon appearance, saying she would discuss the matter with fellow Democrats in a closed evening meeting. “So far the response has not been very good,” she said after meeting with other Democratic leaders. Another House Democratic leader, Rep. Chris Van Hollen of Maryland, said he couldn’t recommend the package to his colleagues. Obama said no one is entirely happy with the compromise he crafted with Republicans, but “it’s a good deal for the American people.” “This country was founded on compromise,” he said. If Democrats kill the tax plan, it would mark a stunning defeat for Obama and a huge political bet that voters will blame Republicans

as much as Democrats for an impasse that leads to higher taxes starting Jan. 1. Few on Capitol Hill believe Democrats will take that gamble. But liberal lawmakers’ discontent is hard to measure in the wake of last month’s big election setbacks. Despite their minority status, Senate Republicans managed last week to block Obama’s long-promised bid to end Bush-era tax cuts for households earning more than $250,000. They insisted that all the tax cuts from 2001 and 2003, scheduled to expire in three weeks, be extended, for rich and poor alike. “I have not been able to budge them,” Obama said. Without a compromise, he said, 2 million unemployed people “may not be able to pay their bills, and tens of millions of people who are

struggling right now are suddenly going to see their paychecks smaller” because of income tax increases. “I’m not here to play games with the American people or the health of the economy,” he said.

Besides the most-publicized proposals, the plan would continue other programs such as enhanced tuition tax credits for college and breaks for businesses that hire new workers. And it would set the estate tax at a rate preferred by Republicans. Overall, officials said, the plan could add $900 billion to the federal deficit.

Unless both houses approve some version of the tax proposal before Congress adjourns this month, income taxes will rise for virtually all workers.

Police were dispatched to the 2300 block of North Mesa Avenue on Monday. The victim reported that he was chased to his home by a known subject. Investigation revealed 9-mm shell casings outside the home. The residence had been struck five times. Partial slugs and slugs were found inside the home. The victim believes the subject to be someone who shot him in the past.

Shoplifting becomes aggravated assault

A shoplifting incident developed into an alleged aggravated assault Tuesday afternoon when a subject pulled a firearm after an employee attempted to detain him. The incident occurred around 2:30 p.m. Tuesday at Farmer’s Country Market, 800 W. Hobbs St. Roswell Police Department officials believe four subjects were involved, said Travis Holley, public information officer for the RPD. One subject has been detained, but no arrests had been made as of 4 p.m. Officers are talking to eye witnesses. The other subjects escaped in a brown Dodge Intrepid. Officials are seeking information about the whereabouts of either of the suspects or the vehicle. Anyone with information should call RPD at 6246770, or Crime Stoppers at 1-888-594-8477.

Chewing tobacco maker agrees to $5M settlement Elvis doc helps woman

NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) — The maker of Skoal and Copenhagen smokeless tobacco has agreed to pay $5 million to the family of a man who died of mouth cancer in what is believed to be the first wrongful-death settlement won from a chewing tobacco company. A legal expert said the case could open the door for more lawsuits against makers of chewing tobacco, an industry that drew fewer legal battles during the 1990s than cigarette manufacturers. U.S. Smokeless Tobacco Co. will pay the award to the family of Bobby Hill of Canton, N.C., who began chewing tobacco at 13. He died in 2003 at 42. Attorney Antonio Ponvert III, who represented Hill’s relatives, told The Associated Press about the agreement Tuesday. Regulatory documents confirmed the deal. Steven Callahan, a spokesman for Altria, which acquired U.S. Smokeless Tobacco last year, said the company admitted no liability and does


not make any health claims about its products. Ponvert and Mark Gottlieb, director of the Tobacco Products Liability Project at Northeastern University in Boston, both said the Hill family settlement is the first case of its kind. Gottlieb predicted more lawsuits targeting smokeless tobacco would follow, calling the settlement “a wakeup call” to plaintiffs’ attorneys “that there are a lot of victims of smokeless tobacco use out there, and it’s possible these cases can be successful.” Smokeless tobacco companies managed to fend off most previous lawsuits. In the past, lawyers focused more on cigarette makers because of stronger evidence to back up their claims, even though smokeless tobacco is harmful as well, Gottlieb said. “So this is an unusual instance and runs counter to what had been the sort of the playbook for tobacco litigation,” Gottlieb said. The settlement shows that “perhaps there is a new strategy afoot in terms of dealing with some of these types of cases.”

But, Gottlieb added, Altria may have simply concluded it was cheaper to settle than risk a larger award at trial. Callahan said the case involved unique circumstances because it was a settlement offer made before Altria acquired the company. “And we have no intention of settling cases like this in the future,” he said. Ponvert said his case was bolstered by previously undisclosed letters from the 1980s that the company sent to minors thanking them for their business and offering free samples. The company even sent a can opener to one child to help open the chewing tobacco, he said. “It was just this unbelievable trail of incredibly damning documents,” Ponvert said. The family’s case also was stronger because Hill was a longtime user of chewing tobacco who did not drink or smoke cigarettes, factors tobacco companies point to as causing the cancer, Ponvert said.

LAS VEGAS (AP) — It wasn’t blue suede shoes but a pair of sneakers that led a San Francisco doctor dressed as Elvis Presley to a woman who passed out at a Las Vegas restaurant after a marathon. Claudio Palma tells the Las Vegas Review-Journal he was dressed as the King after Sunday’s Las Vegas Rock ’n’ Roll half-marathon when he performed CPR and resuscitated another runner at the Burger Bar at Mandalay Place. The 36-year-old was clad in a jumpsuit, sideburns and scarf for the race and may have looked like Presley, but in real life, he’s an anesthesiologist. Palma says paramedics then arrived, and the woman gave him a weird look and told him she was OK.

Judge denies WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange bail Roswell Daily Record

LONDON (AP) — A British judge sent Julian Assange to jail on Tuesday, denying bail to the WikiLeaks founder after Assange vowed to fight efforts to be extradited to Sweden in a sex-crimes investigation. Despite Assange’s legal troubles, a WikiLeaks spokesman insisted the flow of secret U.S. diplomatic cables would not be af fected. He also downplayed efforts to constrict the group’s finances after both Visa and MasterCard cut off key funding methods Tuesday. “This will not change our operation,” spokesman Kristinn Hrafnsson told The Associated Press. As if to underline the point, WikiLeaks released a dozen new diplomatic cables, its first publication in more than 24 hours, including the details of a NATO defense plan for Poland, Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania that prompted an indignant response from the Russian envoy to the alliance. Assange turned himself in to Scotland Yard on Tuesday morning, and was sent to the City of Westminster Magistrates’ Court in the early after noon. He showed no reaction as Judge Howard Riddle denied him bail and sent him to jail until his next extradition hearing on Dec. 14. U.S. Defense Secretary

Robert Gates, visiting with Afghan President Hamid Karzai and U.S. troops in Afghanistan, was pleased to hear that Assange had been arrested. “That sounds like good news to me,” he said Tuesday. Riddle asked the 39year -old Australian whether he understood that he could agree to be extradited to Sweden. Assange, dressed in a navy blue suit, cleared his throat and said: “I understand that and I do not consent.” The judge said he had grounds to believe that the former computer hacker — a self-described homeless refugee — might not show up to his next hearing if he were granted bail. Arguments during the hour-long hearing detailed the sex accusations against Assange, all of which he has denied. Attorney Gemma Lindfield, acting on behalf of the Swedish authorities, outlined one allegation of rape, two allegations of molestation and one of unlawful coercion stemming from Assange’s separate sexual encounters in August with two women in Sweden. Lindfield said one woman accused Assange of pinning her down and refusing to use a condom on the night of Aug. 14 in Stockholm. That woman also accused Assange of molesting her in a way “designed to violate her sexual integrity” several

days later. A second woman accused Assange of having sex with her without a condom while she was asleep at her Stockholm home. Assange’s lawyers have claimed the accusations stem from a “dispute over consensual but unprotected sex” and say the women only made the claims after finding out about each other’s relationships with Assange. WikiLeaks lawyer Mark Stephens says the

case has taken on political overtones — a claim Swedish of ficials have rejected. Legally, there is a good chance Assange will be heading to Sweden. Experts say European arrest warrants like the one issued by Sweden can be tough to beat, barring mental or physical incapacity. Even if the warrant were defeated on a technicality, Sweden could simply issue a new one.

Assange’s Swedish lawyer Bjorn Hurtig said it was dif ficult to say how long the extradition process in Britain would take, but it could be anywhere from a week to two months. It was not publicly known where Assange was being held, since British police never reveal that for privacy and security reasons. Some prisoners occasionally get Internet access, although only under close monitoring.

Meanwhile, Stephens said he would reapply for bail, noting that several prominent Britons — including socialite Jemima Khan and filmmaker Ken Loach — had each offered to pay 20,000 pounds ($31,500) as surety so Assange could go free. WikiLeaks, meanwhile, came under increasing financial pressure Tuesday. Collecting individual donations — the mainstay of its operations — became more difficult after credit card companies said they would refuse to process donations to the site. Visa Inc. said it would “suspend Visa payment acceptance on WikiLeaks’ website pending further investigation into the nature of its business and whether it contravenes Visa operating rules.” MasterCard said it would suspend payments “until the situation is resolved.” PayPal Inc., a popular online payment service, has already cut its links to the website, while Swiss authorities closed Assange’s new Swiss bank account on Monday, freezing tens of thousands of euros, according to his lawyers. WikiLeaks is still soliciting donations through bank transfers to affiliates in Iceland and Germany, as well as by mail to an address at University of Melbourne in Australia.

Southern New Mexico district short on judges; about to get shorter

LAS CRUCES (AP) — A busy judicial district in southern New Mexico will be in a greater pinch beginning next month with the retirements of Chief Judge Jerald Valentine and Judge Stephen Bridgforth. Gov.-elect Susana Martinez isn’t expected to waste any time filling the vacancies, but the time it takes to select new judges and get them up to speed is expected to burden an already chock-full court schedule. The district handles an annual average of 1,600 drunken driving cases, 750 juvenile cases, 1,200 felony crimes and 400 domestic violence cases. An Administrative Office of the Courts finding shows the court needs 3.5 more judges. “It would sure be nice to, ultimately, have three criminal judges, but that’s not going to happen for a while,” said criminal defense attorney Jess Lilley, a past member of two nominating committees. “The criminal dockets are just overloaded and we’re in desperate need of a judge.” With Judge Douglas Driggers moving to Valentine’s position, one new judge will be expected to handle domestic relations. It will be up to the chief judge to decide what kind of cases the second vacancy are to be assigned to, according to the Judicial Nominating Commission. What’s likely is that the all-Democratic makeup of the judges will change after outgoing Democratic Gov. Bill Richardson passes the reins to Martinez, who currently serves as the district attorney. Martinez spokesman Danny Diaz said: “(Martinez) believes it is critically important to have judges who interpret the law as it is written as opposed to create law from the bench. She will carefully examine a wide array of candidates for any vacancies and select highly-qualified individuals to serve in the judiciary who reasonably and thoughtfully apply the law in matters that come before them.” Lilley and Chief Deputy District Attorney Amy Orlando, who has also served on multiple nominating commissions, said the nominating process has the potential to be political, but it doesn’t have to be. Lilley said his only hopes for the new judge-appointees is that they’re well rounded, knowledgeable and ready to learn. “I think Susana is smart enough to know a district



judge is an important position and I have confidence in her (selection),” he said. “And she’s not going to choose somebody who is not competent to fill a position just for a political agenda.” The public can observe the nominating process, write in during a public comment period and attend Judicial Nominating Commission meetings.

Junk at recycling facility

CARLSBAD (AP) — Carlsbad’s code enforcement officer is doing some sleuthing at one of the city’s recycling centers to find out who dumped junk in the center’s public recycling bins. Rainbow Recycling Center supervisor Mary Garwood says rags, oil cans, empty beer bottles, discarded clothing and a host of other items were dumped in the bin to an overflowing capacity over the weekend. The dumped items included contaminates that had to be hauled off to the landfill. Garwood says the center constantly battles illegal dumping at its collection site, but never on the scale that occurred Sunday. She says not only is illegal dumping problematic, it also poses risks to those who work at the recycling center. Items accepted at the center include newspaper, office paper, corrugated cardboard, aluminum cans and plastic bottles without caps.

City to appeal plan

FARMINGTON (AP) — Farmington city councilors have decided unanimously to clear the way for the city to appeal the state’s recently approved plan for curbing greenhouse gas emissions. The councilors had met privately with attorneys during a closed session last month and again briefly during Tuesday’s work session to discuss the potential litigation. It was up to the councilors to decide whether to authorize the city to file an appeal with the state Court of Appeals over a recent decision by the state Environmental Improvement Board to adopt new cap-and-trade regulations that would apply to power plants, refineries and other large polluters. The city’s electric utility has voiced concern about the regulations, saying they could mean rate increases for residential and commercial customers.

Will Martinez be GOP’s pick for VP? A4 Wednesday, December 8, 2010

SANTA FE — Are New Mexicans about to get the same story, second verse? During Susana Martinez’s year-long quest for the governor’s office, no one talked publicly about the possibility of her being the GOP vice-presidential nominee two years hence. Late in the primary campaign, it became very obvious that state and national GOP leaders had pegged her as their favorite. Those of us not in the party structure were very surprised to see her crush four other candidates badly at the Republican preprimary nominating convention in March. In late May, we were even more surprised to see huge out-of-state cash donations rolling into the Martinez campaign and a reprimand of her closest competitor by the state party brass. Martinez produced another lopsided victory margin in the June primary. But with a campaign account severely depleted by a bruising primary, the general feel-




ing was that she would be swamped by Lt. Gov. Diane Denish’s $2 million war chest with which she was starting her campaign. But Susana didn’t miss a step. Her money kept rolling in, much of it from outside the state. It was obvious the national folks really liked her and felt she could win and guarantee Republicans some cover in next year’s legislative and congressional redistricting. The day after the Nov. 2 general election, it finally dawned on us folks out in the stacks that GOP leaders had bigger plans for Susana. National blogs, and soon news-

Roswell Daily Record

papers, were alive with speculation about Martinez as the perfect GOP vice presidential candidate in 2012. After watching George W. Bush capture 40 percent of the Hispanic vote, Republicans realized an Hispanic on the ticket might carry some real weight. This year, they also found themselves doing better with women than usual. Wow. What if we could find a Hispanic woman of sufficient stature? That would make us difficult to beat. Hey, I hear the New Mexico Republicans have a Hispanic woman in their gubernatorial primary. Let’s take a look at her. So now Susana is on everyone’s short list for vice president in 2012. She’s being invited all over the country to appear on panels about new faces in the Republican Party. Could we be in for another partly or mostly absent governor in our future? You know the rest. She’ll deny her interest and tell us she only cares about New Mexico. But she’ll

keep going to meetings out of state. And maybe she might do some things in New Mexico that will look good on the national stage. Richardson immediately started setting himself apart with “bold initiatives.” He became a tax-cutting Democrat. The RailRunner commuter train and other environmental initiatives made him “The Greenest Governor.” And he took a leadership role on immigration. Watch for the same types of action from Martinez. She has even dubbed her inaugural ball “The Bold Inaugural Ball.” What does that mean? I’m guessing some bold themes plus some bold invitees to the first-ever invitationonly inaugural ball. Martinez’s swearing-in ceremony will not be held at the Capitol as usual. It will be held on the Santa Fe plaza. Why do that? It’s a bold change. It’s outside on traditionally the coldest day of the year. Only the toughest of governors would ever do that. Gov. Jerry Apodaca’s

was the last outdoor inaugural. Some have worried that Susana la Tejana isn’t interested in New Mexico history, tradition and culture. Where better could she be sworn in than on a 400-year-old plaza, with a backdrop of the Palace of the Governors, which now is the Museum of New Mexico? There will be a Children’s Ball held at the Children’s Museum. What better way to symbolize the new governor’s commitment to children and education? The only problem with grooming Gov.

Keep it simple, lame ducks

The political class is in the midst of one of those strange anachronisms of American political life, a congressional lame-duck session, during which members of the House and Senate repudiated by voters last month get one last chance to weigh in on making new laws of dubious wisdom. The American people would be best served if those legislators choose to disappoint the president. The arguably legitimate reasons to call Congress back into session before the new Congress is installed in January have to do with miscalculations by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid. Sen. Reid thought Democratic chances would be better in the midterms if Congress avoided votes on maintaining current tax rates (sometimes called “extending the Bush tax cuts”) and passing a Continuing Resolution to keep the federal government funded for awhile, since the budget nominally due Oct. 1 has not been passed. Since every American’s taxes will go up next year if Congress fails to act on tax rates, it is important — even the president agrees — to keep the current rates in place, and a Continuing Resolution would prevent a government shutdown. But these essential issues are taking a back seat. President Barack Obama has suddenly decided that the lame ducks must pass a new nuclear arms control treaty with Russia that he didn’t lift a finger to push before the election. A food safety bill with unneeded new regulations on vitamins, changing the military’s “don’t ask don’t tell” policy toward homosexuals, a dubious Dream Act for children of illegal immigrants and others, and even an auto safety bill, have suddenly become essential. If the Democratic leadership thought it could get a cap-and-trade bill and card check through they would probably try. Defeated Democrats who lost due to overreaching by the administration and congressional leaders would do well to let the leaders know they will work on the essentials but leave the more controversial stuff to the next Congress.

IDs returned

Dear Editor: Thank you Bill Hale! On Saturday, Oct. 27, 2010, as I attempted to cash a check, I realized my driver’s license and military ID were missing. As I retraced my steps of that morning, my cell phone rang; my wife asked, have you lost something? Thanks to Bill Hale, who found my ID and license in the Home Depot parking lot and returned it to me. He could have ignored it or turned it in to Home Deport. But, he went to the trouble of finding our home. We regret that we did not get your address or phone number. So as you read this, if you know Bill Hale, thank him for me. Bob Pottle Roswell DEAR DR.

answer questions as to whether a chest X-ray or spiral CT can lower death rates from lung cancer. Evidence from several studies indicates that the spiral CT can detect small cancers not detected on standard chest X-rays.

Beyond that, the disadvantage of the CT is that about 25 percent of those tested may produce false positive results, meaning that a person might be considered to have lung cancer when in fact he or she doesn’t. When a problem is suspected, the patient will likely be scheduled for a biopsy or treatment and perhaps even unnecessary invasive surgery, a procedure that can reduce pulmonary function. And that has nothing to do with the fact that many insurance companies will not recognize the cost of the CT, which will likely be close to $1,000. I can already imagine readers saying they will gladly pay this amount to avoid the tortuous medication and side effects they might face, and I can fully

Perhaps that is why more and more hospitals across the country are using spiral CT for this very purpose, even before knowing study results.

Fraud alert and proposed benefit cuts LOCAL

Roswell Daily Record

The VA has issued an urgent fraud alert to all veteran groups and to the veteran population in general. An organization called Veterans Affairs Services is providing benefit and general information on VA and gathering personal information on veterans. This organization, which can be found at, is not affiliated with VA in any way. VAS may be gaining access to military personnel through their close resemblance to the VA name and seal. The VA requests that if you have any examples of VAS actions, that you contact your local VA office and request that they pass the information to Michael G. Daugherty, staff attorney, DVA, Office of General Counsel. As economic problems persist, scams and schemes by low-life rodents to gain access to veterans’ money increase rapidly. Don’t give out information that “VA representatives” should already have. Now for some follow-up information on a column I did a few weeks ago. I quoted a Col. Wayne Morris, USMC (Ret), who said, "We know that nothing is safe right now when considering the ongoing efforts of the current administration, especially in any

I personally see a marked effort on the part of the current administration to divide us on this issue — to cause those who are not military retirees, even those now on active duty to eventually play against us and the benefits we have thus far been able to retain. Under current legislative plans Medicare will be cut by $500 billion and T ricare for Life is linked solidly to Medicare. Doing the math, anyone can see that such a devastating cut in services and benefits to Medicare would mean similar cuts in Tricare for Life.” A couple of major veterans’ organizations disputed Morris’ “theories” nothing to worry about.

Of all the arguments made by the Obama administration for repealing the law, the one mentioned by Secretary Gates is the least defensible. Gates said Congress had better act before the law was “imposed immediately by judicial fiat.” Perhaps Gates should reread the Constitution, especially the part about the separation of powers. Article 1, Section 8 empowers Congress to make rules for the gover nment and regulate land and naval forces. A National Review Online editorial labeled Gates’ comment, “... blackmail via judicial imperialism.” What is more likely to happen if the policy is reversed is that tens of thousands of those currently in service will retire, or quit. During Senate Armed Services Committee hearings last week, Sen. John McCain cited another Pentagon survey, which found that repealing the ban could create an “alar ming”

A proposal is being offered by the President’s bipartisan Debt Reduction Task Force, co-chaired by former Sen. Pete Domenici, R-N.M., and economist Alice Rivlin. is to reduce the cost of military health care by imposing greater cost-sharing on TRICARE beneficiaries. The task force report lays out a plan that would raise working age retiree premiums, costshares and co-pays so that working-age retirees would once again cover the 27 percent of TRICARE. Alert: In addition, Medicare-eligible retirees using TRICARE for Life as a supplement to Medicare would be required to begin paying "minimal costsharing" amounts under the plan. Some retirees could see their TRICARE premiums increase by as much as $2,000 a year. Pharmacy co-pays in TRICARE retail network — now $9 for brand-name drugs on formulary and $22 for non-formulary drugs— would be at $15 for brand names on formulary and $45 for brand names off formulary. If this is adopted, my current monthly medicine cost goes from $220 a month to $450 a month. That figure will naturally increase because more and more medications are being taken of f the "approved" government list to save costs.


Under another Obama commission, drastic cuts to military benefits including a three year, across-the-board pay freeze and making all service members wait until age 60 to draw retired pay were offered. For the military community, the draft recommendations issued Nov. 10 are “a serious threat, though not necessarily an imminent threat,” said retired Air Force Col. Steve Strobridge, government relations director for the Military Officers Association of America and a military pay and benefits expert. "Still, their inclusion in a larger package of government wide cuts increases their chances of being implemented in some for m," he said. Because the changes are so sweeping, Strobridge does not see Congress adopting them right away. But he believes the specter of cuts will hang over service members and veterans for years. The draft recommendations are far from a done deal. My comment: I believe something like that was said months before the Kennedy/Obama Health Care Act went screaming through Congress. This could be one time gridlock may not be such a bad condition! More to come. God bless.

Tabernacle Baptist hosts Christmas production Tabernacle Baptist Church will be presenting its annual Christmas production at 6:30 p.m., Friday, Dec. 10 and Saturday Dec. 11, and at 11 a.m., Sunday, Dec. 12. This year’s production, “The Richest Family in Town,” will take you back to the 1940s and into the life of a family struggling to make ends meet. With her husband deceased, a mother is trying to prepare her children for a very slim Christmas when a chain of events seemingly lead the family to a Christmas without a single gift. Through the lessons learned by this family and “Grandma’s Famous Fudge,” we soon find out who is truly the richest family in town. With laughter and at times tears, the audience will leave with a better appreciation of what Christmas truly is.

Minister of Music and Education Jason Perry says that this will be the Christmas event of the season. No ticket is necessary and admission is free and all in attendance will receive some of Grandma’s Famous Fudge. The entire community is invited. For more information, contact the church office at 622-7912.

Pearl Harbor survivors gather 69 years later

PEARL HARBOR, Hawaii (AP) — Aging Pearl Harbor survivors on Tuesday heard reassurances their sacrifice would be remembered and passed on to future generations as they gathered to mark the 69th anniversary of the attack. “Long after the last veteran of the war in the Pacific is gone, we will still be here telling their story and honoring their dedication and sacrifice,” National Park Service Director Jonathan Jarvis told about 120 survivors who traveled to Hawaii from around the country for the event. Merl Resler, 88, of Newcastle, Calif., was among those who retur ned. He remembered firing shots at Japanese planes from the USS Maryland and standing in the blood of a shipmate hit by shrapnel during the attack. “My teeth was chattering like I was freezing to death, and it was 84 degrees temperature. It was awful frightful,” said Resler. On Tuesday, fighter jets from the Montana Air National Guard flew above Pearl Harbor in missing man for mation to honor those killed in the attack, which sunk the USS Arizona and with it, nearly 1,000 sailors and Marines. In all, about 2,400 service members died. Sailors lined the deck of the USS Chafee and saluted as the guided missile destroyer passed between the sunken hull of the USS Arizona and the grassy landing where the remem-

“The whole idea is to raise the most money we can for charity,” Smith said, adding that the fundraiser will benefit a host of local non-profits through the umbrella charity organization called the Community Foundation of Chaves County. “The more people we can get involved, the better.” To do so, a variety of tactics ranging from flattery to invoking a politician’s polished spiel must be employed. “He’s a true politician,” Jolene Lilly, who was eyeballing the homemade pottery and quilts, said jokingly of her friend Owen. “He can talk us into anything.” While Owen relied on his silver tongue and popularity to gently guide bidders from monetary ambivalence to secure financiers, Smith relied on his memory. He says he remembers who is interested in a particular item, then when time for bidding draws close, he races to find them in the crowd to make them bid the highest. Frequent golf partners and friends of more than 25 years, Smith and Owen also both draw heavily upon on their

brance ceremony was held. After the ceremony, the survivors, some in wheelchairs, passed through a “Walk of Honor” lined by saluting sailors, Marines, air men and soldiers to enter a new $56 million visitor center that was dedicated at the ceremony. “This facility is the fulfillpersonal connections in the crowd to encourage bidding: friends, customers and constituents alike. “These gentlemen know everyone in the room,” Susie Russell, executive director of CFCC, said of the emcees. “They’re just lively characters and make it fun.” As the dynamic duo in penguin suits work the floor, the third emcee takes to the podium on the center stage to lead the live auction. A practicing auctioneer and area rancher, Aubrey Dunn is considered an invaluable member of the trio since he graduated from the Missouri Auction School in 2008, known as the nation’s Harvard for auctioneering. “He knows the real lingo,” Owen said, impressed. By 7 p.m. the Angel Gala auction is closed. But before the three wise men bid the crowd adieu, they are happy to report that they are sure they raised thousands of dollars for charity. “We’re always kind of anxious to know how we did,” Owen said in a later interview. “But I think overall we were real pleased with the bottom line, the dollars that were raised.”

ment of a promise that we will honor the past,” Jarvis said. The Park Service built the new center because the old one, which was built on reclaimed land in 1980, was sinking into the ground. The old facility was also overwhelmed by its popularity: it received

about 1.6 million visitors each year, about twice as many as it was designed for. People often had to squeeze by one another to view the photos and maps in its small exhibit hall. In comparison, the new center has two spacious exhibition halls with room for more

how to best spend taxpayer dollars and gives them input into which programs should be prioritized.” Diaz reiterated that Martinez wants to “protect core functions like classrooms and basic health care spending for those most in need,” which is provided through Medicaid. She also opposes tax increases to balance the budget. The request for cutback proposals excludes colleges and universities, the judiciary, the Legislature, and independently elected state offices, such as the attorney general. The governor must submit budget recommendations to the Legislature by Jan. 10. A top assignment for lawmakers is approving a budget to pay for public education and general government in the 2012 fiscal year, which starts next July. Sen. John Arthur Smith, a Deming Democrat and vice chairman of the Legislative Finance Committee, said 10 percent budget cuts are a “realistic scenario” if Martinez sticks to her campaign promises of safeguarding public schools and Medicaid, and taxes aren’t increased. “That might even be a little light, but it could be in that ballpark,” Smith said. The state is spending about $5.2 billion this year. Schools and Medicaid account for almost 60 percent of that, leaving about $2.2 billion for the rest of government, including higher education, courts, and programs ranging from prisons and law enforcement to tourism and environmental regulation. A 10 percent spending reduction in all of government except schools and Medicaid would provide enough sav-

It gives us the opportunity to link more with the world so that we can get more instruction.” Students in dental hygiene programs will provide on-site cleanings, sealants and other services for members of the community for a small fee. “People can come who are low-

people, as well as large maps and artifacts such as anti-aircraft guns. There was a minor disruption on the center’s first day when the discovery of an unidentified bag inside one of the galleries prompted the Park Service to briefly evacuate the two exhibit halls and a court-

yard. But the rest of the visitors center remained open, and everyone was allowed back in the galleries after the object was determined to be a medical bag carrying oxygen. U.S. Pacific Fleet commander Adm. Patrick Walsh said the new center, which has twice the exhibition space as the old one, would tell the story of those who fought and won the peace. “This museum gives a view into their lives, a window into the enormity of their task, an appreciation of the heaviness of their burden, the strength of their resolve,” Walsh said. Assistant Secretary of the Interior Thomas Stickland said the events of Dec. 7, 1941, were so traumatic and marked by heroism that they had become ingrained in the nation’s consciousness. “That day is now fundamental to who we are as a people. Its stories must be preserved. They must be honored and they must be shared,” Strickland said. USS Pennsylvania sailor DeWayne Chartier was on his way to church that day but never made it: “I got interrupted someplace along the line,” the 93year-old recounted. He returned to Pearl Harbor from Walnut Creek, Calif., to mark the anniversary and see the dedication of the new center. “It is my duty. It is not just a visit,” Chartier said. “I felt I should be part of it.”

ings to eliminate a $215 million revenue shortfall projected by the finance committee. Cuts of nearly twice that amount would be needed to wipe out a $450 million shortfall forecast by Gov. Bill Richardson’s administration. The LFC’s projection assumes a no-growth budget and passage of legislation to continue more than $70 million in budget-balancing steps used this year, such as allowing the state to trim its pension contributions while workers pay more. The administration has said the shortfall could exceed $400 million if those costcutting steps aren’t continued and budget increases are provided for Medicaid, schools and other programs for inflation and expected growth in services. Agencies are to submit their annual budget requests to the Department of Finance and Administration. To prepare for that, the Richardson administration had told agencies to provide “no growth” budget proposals that would freeze spending at current amounts. The directive from the Martinez transition team made clear that additional savings will be needed. It told agencies to consider whether “programs are core or essential to the agency’s mission” and whether programs are required by state law. Agencies are to provide “the goals and activities associated with each program that has been identified as a low priority program, as well as a description of the programmatic impact if the suggested budgetary savings recommendation was actually implemented,” the directive said. New Mexico faces a budget deficit in part because the state is using nearly $370 million in temporary federal aid to pay for schools and Medicaid this year and the money won’t be available next year. State revenues are projected to grow about 4 percent next year but that’s not enough to offset the loss of the federal economic stimulus aid.

income,” Baston said. “The cost is very reasonable — $10 for a cleaning, and it gives our students an opportunity to give back to the community as well.” Funding for the Health Science Center came through a $117.9 millon New Mexico general obligation bond for education, which was voted on during Nov. 7, 2006, elections. ENMU-R received $5.8 million from the bond. “When (voters) approve something like this, they’re not only improving education for this particular site, but for a number of other sites and

NY feds: Boston businessman giving up $625 million


CALL 622-7710

NEW YORK (AP) — A 97year -old Boston-area apparel entrepreneur agreed Tuesday to forfeit $625 million to be distributed to cheated investors in jailed Bernard Madoff’s historic Ponzi scheme, authorities revealed, as a court trustee said negotiations are under way to recover money as well from the owners of the New York Mets. The U.S. gover nment said in papers filed in federal court in Manhattan that Massachusetts busi-

nessman and philanthropist Carl Shapiro, one of the first investors in Madoff’s investment business and a longtime Madof f friend, entered the forfeiture deal along with his partners. The papers were filed to recover the money from the accounts of JP Morgan Chase Bank, N.A., where some of the Shapiro investments were held. The government said proceeds of the settlement with Shapiro would be distributed to Madof f investors. The

papers said Shapiro held an account in his name with Madoff’s investment business since 1961 and had controlled accounts for others from time to time. Madoff started his investment business in 1959. That action proceeded as court-appointed trustee Irving Picard filed a complaint under seal in U.S. Bankruptcy Court to recover money from Sterling Equities, along with its partners and family members. Picard said his office was “engaged in good-faith

negotiations” with the Sterling defendants, who include the owners of the New York Mets baseball team. In a statement of its own, Sterling agreed with Picard.

It added: “Regardless of the outcome of these discussions, we want to emphasize that the New York Mets will have all the necessary financial and operational resources to fully compete and win. That is our commitment to our fans and to New York.”

ARIES (March 21-April 19)     Finally, teamwork prevails, even for just a short moment. You understand a lot more than you let on. Good news will come from a stunning insight. If you are startled, just imagine your more conservative friends with this nugget. Tonight: Burning the candle at both ends.

Yes, you could be uncomfortable with forthcoming news. Tonight: Whatever appeals to your imagination. GEMINI (May 21-June 20)     Break patterns and dare to walk a new path. Others are timid and would rather watch. You’ll discover just how well all this works out for you. A parent, boss or someone you need to answer to surprises you. Tonight: Make togetherness the theme. CANCER (June 21-July 22)  Continue to defer, and suddenly you’ll gain


tremendous insight into another person or other people. Your humor and ability to move past the inevitable mark a decision.

A warning at climate talks: Glacier melt speeds up

CANCUN, Mexico (AP) — The lives and livelihoods of people in South Asia are at “high risk� as global warming melts glaciers in the Himalayas, sending floods crashing down from overloaded mountain lakes and depriving farmers of steady water sources, U.N. and other international experts reported Friday. Worldwide, “since the beginning of the 1980s, the rate of ice loss has increased substantially in many regions, concurrent with an increase in global mean air temperatures,� the U.N. Environment Program said. Glaciers in southern South America and Alaska’s coastal mountains have been losing mass faster and for longer than glaciers elsewhere in the world, it said. The new U.N. assessment of recent glacier research was issued at annual climate talks, where delegates were expected, once again this year, to fail to reach agreement on long-term mandatory action to rein in

emissions of global warming gases. “These alarming findings on melting glaciers underline the importance of combating climate change globally,� said Norway’s environment minister, Erik Solheim, whose government supports the glacier research. “It sends a strong message to us as politicians and climate negotiators in Cancun.� In their second and final week, a spirit of compromise seemed to have settled over the talks, but negotiators were expected, at best, to agree only on secondary tools for coping with global warming, laying the groundwork, for example, for a “green fund� of $100 billion a year by 2020. Financed by richer nations, the fund would support poorer nations in converting to cleaner energy sources and in adapting to a shifting climate that may damage people’s health, agriculture and economies in general. The Himalayan nations of

Nepal and Bhutan will need such support, as they try to cope with melting glaciers by siphoning off water from swelling glacial lakes. The work is costly and difficult in remote, high-altitude locations, UNEP said. The experts said the incidence of “glacial lake outburst floods� has grown over the past 40 years, accounting for some of the 5,000 Asian deaths each year from flash floods. More broadly, the swift depletion of glacial waters may leave tens of thousands of farmers without irrigation water. “The risk to lives and livelihoods in the fragile Hindu Kush Himalayan region is high and getting higher,� said Madhav Karki of the Nepal-based International Center for Integrated Mountain Development. The periodic climate talks earlier this year were marked by open sniping between the U.S. and China, but that friction was not in evidence on Monday.

SPORTS Roswell Daily Record


Apparently the thirdquarter jinx doesn’t just affect the Roswell girls basketball team. It also affects the Coyote boys team. The two-time defending state champion Coyotes fell victim to that jinx on Tuesday in its season-opening loss to visiting Portales (11) at the Coyote Den. Roswell managed just two points in the third quarter and let a nine-point halftime lead evaporate into a three-point deficit in a 57-55 loss to the Rams. “It killed us. (Portales) did a good job and made an adjustment or two, but we tried to do too much oneon-one stuff and that’s my fault for allowing it to go,” said Coyote coach Britt Cooper, whose team lost for the first time since a Jan. 9 loss to Arizona power Estrella Foothills. “When you get outscored 16-2 in a quarter, it’s a little hard to overcome that. The momentum shifted.” Cooper was spot on about the momentum shifting. After Roswell spent the better part of the second quarter building a 38-27 lead, the wheels fell off in the third thanks to four tur novers and 0 for 8

shooting from the field. Malcolm Wiggins hit the first basket of the second half less than a minute in, but Roswell wouldn’t score again. “It’s just things we got to fix,” Cooper said. “We knew going in that we had some adjustments to make. A loss always puts things in perspective and puts you back to where you know you have to work harder.” Portales, meanwhile, found the open man on nearly every possession and shot 7 of 9 from the field to build a 16-0 run. Miguel Vasquez had six of the 16 and Keisto Ontiveros had five to help Portales to a 43-40 lead going to the final stanza. The fourth was a backand-forth af fair, but Roswell could never fully swing the momentum back in its favor. Jonathan Ervin — who finished with a game-high 23 — scored the first 10 points of the period for Roswell, but Portales always seemed to have an answer. The lead changed hands 10 times in the quarter, including one final time with 2:12 left when Portales’ Phoenix Russell dropped behind the defense for a backdoor layup that put the Rams up 55-53.

It was the third backdoor bunny of the quarter for Russell, who scored all eight of his points in the fourth. Those types of defensive breakdowns cost Roswell all night, and was something Cooper talked about after the game. “That part of it, there’s no excuse for it. (Our players) have played in our system long enough that they know how to play team defense,” he said. “We just got completely lost. “There’s a couple of times we switched defenses and a couple of guys were in the wrong defense or we were sitting there trying to gamble on something we shouldn’t have been gambling on. You’ve got to play helpside defense and keep the ball in front of you. That killed us.” Despite all the breakdowns, Roswell (0-1) still had an opportunity to take the lead late, thanks to a

Defense key as Hagerman downs NMMI

The deadline for registration for th e Yucca Recreation

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — A spokesman for the former Jets game hostess who allegedly received inappropriate phone messages and photos from Brett Favre said Tuesday he is concerned that the quarterback will be retired before the NFL concludes its investigation. Jennifer Sterger’s manager, Phil Reese, said his client wants the investigation finished during the season because Favre has said he will retire at the end of this year, at which point he may no longer be susceptible to punishment from the league. The NFL said it is continuing to work on the case, which first popped up more than two months ago. “It is a complex situation that has involved a great deal of due diligence,” spokesman Greg Aiello said. “We are trying to wrap it up as soon as possible and will notify everyone appropriately when a conclusion is reached.”

Hagerman’s Michael Garcia (4) blocks the shot of NMMI’s Berk Kiziltug (12) during their game, Monday.

If you are going to imitate a team, you could do worse than to mimic the two-time defending state champion Roswell boys basketball team. The Hagerman Bobcat boys basketball team (4-0) took a page out of the Coyote defensive playbook on Tuesday in its 76-45 victory over NMMI. Using a stifling full court press, the Bobcats jumped out to a 12-0 lead in the first four minutes of the game and forced six consecutive turnovers during the run. By the end of the first quarter, Hagerman had a 26-11 lead. The defensive intensity was something Hagerman coach Anthony Mestas expects from his team. “That’s just kind of our philosophy at Hagerman,” he said about the defensive intensity. “We just want to press and we want to attack and create turnovers off our press. We are kind of trying to do what Britt Cooper and

Roswell High does and trying to model it after them.” Thanks to the defense and the Bobcat’s unselfish play, Hagerman opened the second quarter on a 12-4 run and led 41-23 at the half. Isaac Bejarano was key in the Bobcats’ early success as he collected three steals, scored 13 points and dished out four assists. “(Isaac) played really well,” Mestas said. “He was looking for the open man. You know, he has range like Stephen Curry, but then he goes and he penetrates. He is just a phenomenal player.” Bejarano finished the game with 19 points. On the rare occasion that the Bobcat offense did stutter, they just gave the ball to Michael Garcia in the block and let him kick-start the offense. In the decisive first half, Garcia filled the stat sheet as he scored eight points, had six rebounds, swatted two shots and had an assist and a steal. Mestas said that having someone like Michael is an advantage for a small school

like Hagerman. “You know, having a big kid like Michael at a small school really helps us out,” he said. “We can get the ball down low and they can double him and that’s what frees up our guards. When we start hitting the outside shot, it brings the defense out and then we throw to Michael underneath. We are fortunate enough to have a guy like Michael underneath.” By the end of the third quarter, Hagerman held a 64-30 lead and Mestas was able to get his younger players into the game, which he said was important to the long-term success of the team. “(Having that big lead) helped us get our younger guys in,” he said. “That helped us get them some court vision and helped them adjust to the speed at the varsity level. We will need those people if we get in foul trouble down the road.” John Kirtley led the NMMI (1-4) offense with 12 points, while Mike Hill chipped in with nine points.

Broncos introduce Studesville Goddard girls fall

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — Before accepting the interim head coaching job with the Denver Broncos, Eric Studesville wanted to hear what the boss had to say. Not Pat Bowlen. His wife, Staci. Shortly after being summoned to the owner’s office Monday — a long walk in which he wasn’t sure of his coaching fate after the firing of Josh McDaniels — Studesville was awarded the position, despite never having been so much as an offensive coordinator on any level. Taken aback, he told Bowlen he needed a quick moment to think about it,

then ducked out to call his wife and consult her about the promotion from Broncos running backs coach to Denver’s interim head coach for the final four games of the season. She anxiously greenlighted it, knowing how he’s always thought about this day, even if he’s been a perennial running backs coach throughout his NFL coaching career. “He’s ready for the opportunity, ready to make the most of it,” Staci Studesville said after watching his introductory news conference Tuesday. Eric Studesville has vowed not to be anything but himself — a passionate

coach who wants that enthusiasm to rub off on his players and staff. “I love this game. I want them to love this game,” said the 43-year -old Studesville, a former defensive back at the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater. “I want to get the excitement back in the players and get them completely involved and committed to going forward and finishing up this season in the strongest possible way.” He realizes this next month is an audition to see if he can lead a team that’s fallen on hard times. But he’s not giving the assignSee COACH, Page B3


ALAMOGORDO — The Goddard girls basketball team fell behind early and wasn’t able to make a comeback as they fell to Alamagordo 49-41 on Tuesday. The Rockets (0-7) trailed by eight at the half and cut the lead to four in the second half, but couldn’t get over the hump. “Any time we had the chance to get momentum, we’d miss a shot or have a call go against us,” Goddard coach Greg Torres said. “The first half we didn’t play really well. We let them have the advantage points-wise in the first half. We played even with them in the second half. “I know our girls can play a lot better. Next Thursday we get another shot at them at home. We’ll get the gauge and we’ll see if we learned from this game.” Abbie Blach led the Rockets with 13 points. Alyssa Garcia, Rebecca Trujillo and Camille Martinez all scored five points for Goddard.

All he can control is what happens on the field. In that respect, he’s already made some important decisions. Kyle Orton, not T im Tebow, will be his starting quarterback. Of fensive coordinator Mike McCoy will call the plays and Don Martindale remains in charge of the defense. Other than that, it’s business as usual for Studesville and the Broncos (3-9), who haven’t made the playoffs in five years. “I see this as a great opportunity right now, right here that I’m looking WESTERN CONFERENCE Southwest Division . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .W L San Antonio . . . . . . . .17 3 Dallas . . . . . . . . . . . . .17 4 New Orleans . . . . . . .13 7 Houston . . . . . . . . . . .8 13 Memphis . . . . . . . . . . .8 14 Northwest Division . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .W L Utah . . . . . . . . . . . . . .16 6 Denver . . . . . . . . . . . .13 7 Oklahoma City . . . . . .14 8 Portland . . . . . . . . . . .10 11 Minnesota . . . . . . . . . .5 16 Pacific Division . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .W L L.A.

49ers turn to Alex Smith again for key game

SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — Alex Smith is the San Francisco 49ers’ starting quarterback yet again. Coach Mike Singletary made the announcement on his regular KNBR radio show Tuesday morning and the team later tweeted a reference to it. The move comes a day after Singletary said he was contemplating the switch from Troy Smith back to the 2005 No. 1 overall

to maximize,” Studesville said. “Whatever happens after that, we’ll get to that point. T ime will get us there.” Studesville said he spoke with McDaniels on Monday night, receiving a vote of confidence from the coach who hired him this year but was ousted in his second season because of mounting troubles on and off the field. “He wished me the best of luck and supported me in what I am getting ready to take on,” Studesville recounted. “He indicated that he’s proud of me.” Studesville has chatted with some of the players, but will address the group in a meeting Wednesday morning, when he installs the game plan for Sunday’s trip to Arizona.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Simmering all year, the antagonism between Albert Haynesworth and Mike Shanahan finally reached the boiling point Tuesday when the twotime All-Pro defensive lineman was suspended by the Washington Redskins coach without pay for the rest of the season. Citing a litany of acts that essentially add up to season-long insubordination, the Redskins suspended Haynesworth for “conduct detrimental to the club” and told him he’s not welcome for the team’s final four games — and making it extremely unlikely he will play for the club again. “Despite the club’s numerous attempts to persuade Albert Haynesworth to abide by the terms of his contract, he has repeatedly refused to cooperate with our coaching staff in a variety of ways over an extended period of time,” Shanahan said in statement released by the team. “Among other things, he has consistently indicated to our defensive coaches that he refuses to play in our base defense or on first-down or second-down nickel situations. He has also refused to follow the instructions of our coaches both during weekly practices and during actual games as well. “Yesterday, when Albert was at Redskin Park, he told our general manager Bruce Allen that he (Haynesworth) would no longer speak with me. Although suspending any player is not a decision that a head coach enters into lightly, I believe the situation has reached the


draft pick following a 34-16 loss at Green Bay on Sunday. The 49ers (4-8) face a key game at home against NFC West rival Seattle on Sunday. Later Tuesday, the 49ers announced that Johnnie Lynn the secondary coach and special assistant to Singletary has resigned for personal reasons. Alex Smith dislocated his non-throwing left shoulder Oct. 24 at Carolina and hasn’t played since, despite being medically cleared several weeks ago. Singletary has said he will pick a starting QB each week. “Our quarterback is going to be Alex Smith,” Singletary told KNBR. “We felt at this time, Alex with his experience and all of the other things, he would give us the best chance to win at this particular time, at this time of the year. Still very confident in what Troy has been able to do and would not rule out at any point in time him playing again. Right now it’s just a matter of looking where we are in the season and the opportunity we have before us.” Alex Smith has completed 143 of 242 passes for 1,554 yards and nine touchdowns with nine interceptions and 13 sacks this season. He has a subpar 75.0 quarterback rating. This very well could be his last hurrah and farewell season in San Francisco. The 26-year-old Smith, who took over as the starter from the now-departed Shaun Hill at halftime on Oct. 25, 2009, at Houston, is in the final year of his contract with a team trying to end a seven-year playoff drought despite a surprising 0-5 start. Troy Smith, the 2006 Heisman Trophy winner with Ohio State, went 3-2 in five games as the starter after signing with the 49ers in September following his release by Baltimore. His late timing joining the Niners put him behind in learning the playbook, but not so much that Singletary didn’t have confidence he could do the job — picking the third-stringer over backup David Carr to replace the injured Alex Smith against the Panthers. Troy Smith is 66 for 126 and has passed for 1,023 yards and four touchdowns, including throwing for 356 yards in a 23-20 overtime victory over the St. Louis Rams on Nov. 14. “I think the most important thing is the guys understand I’m going to go with the guy I figure will give us the best opportunity to win. I think they know that about me,” Singletary told the radio station. “We’re trying to win games and that’s really the bottom line. ... “Because of the experience, obviously (Alex) knows the playbook. He’s been here, has been in the system, has gone through training camp, the whole nine yards. I just

Broncos blame themselves for McD’s failure

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — The Denver Broncos kicked Josh McDaniels out of a job. They’re not going to throw him under the bus. Speaking on behalf of team owner Pat Bowlen, chief operating officer Joe Ellis said Tuesday the organization was at fault for giving McDaniels too much power at too young an age with so little experience. “I think the responsibilities that he was burdened with, it’s fair to say that we probably burdened him with too much of that and we were unfair to him in that respect,” Ellis said. “And we certainly need to assess that and look at that moving forward.” Ellis said that while a new front office structure isn’t even in the blueprint stages yet, the next coach probably won’t have as much say in personnel matters as McDaniels did. McDaniels, 34, was fired Monday amid the team’s worst slide in four decades, an 11-17 record, and a host of off-the-field troubles, including a series of personnel decisions that backfired and the Spygate II videotaping scandal that tarnished the franchise. McDaniels was replaced on an interim basis by running backs coach Eric Studesville, 43, who will get a crack at the full-time job when the Broncos begin their search for the franchise’s 14th head coach next month. “Surprised and humbled and honored,” Studesville said of his sudden ascension. After determining that two-time Super Bowl winner Mike Shanahan had amassed too much power, the Broncos pledged they wouldn’t give McDaniels the same amount of responsibility when they hired him as Shanahan’s replacement in January 2009. Yet, that’s exactly what they did. “I think it kind of evolved and grew into that and as I said, I take some responsibility on behalf of Pat for allowing that to happen,” Ellis said. “... And it’s very likely that the plan will not empower the next head coach with the kind of authority that Josh was probably unfairly put upon him. And it’s also fair to say that we’ll stick to that plan.” McDaniels, who was 32 when he was hired, had no head coaching experience at any level and had never made personnel decisions when he was handed the keys to the franchise. A few months later, he was allowed to hire videographer Steve Scarnecchia, whose secret tape of the San Francisco 49ers’ practice in London got McDaniels in hot water and would weigh heavily in his dismissal five weeks later. Ellis said he told McDaniels upon his firing Monday afternoon that he still believes in him. “I said, ’I’m disappointed that it didn’t work out for you but you’re going to be a good coach. Unfortunately, it’s going to be somewhere else,”’ Ellis recounted. “I think he’ll grow from this and learn from it and you know his intellectual mind when it comes to

point where the club clearly has no alternative.” Allen informed Haynesworth of the suspension, the maximum permitted under the league’s collective bargaining agreement. Haynesworth’s agent, Chad Speck, said his client will appeal. Speck chided the Redskins for not giving any prior formal notice that Haynesworth’s behavior was in question. “The accusations made by coach Shanahan and Bruce Allen are vague and without merit,” Speck said in a written statement. “Since training camp began, today’s notice was the first that Albert received informing him that his conduct was not consistent with the ’terms of his contract’ as coach Shanahan claims. Bruce confirmed to me today, that there have been no other letters or formal notices of any kind sent to Albert during the regular season suggesting that he was engaging in conduct detrimental to the team.” George Atallah, spokesman for the NFL players’ union, said on Twitter: “All I can say at this time is that the NFLPA is reviewing the details.” It wasn’t hard to see this coming. Haynesworth and Shanahan have been going at it almost from the day the hard-nosed coach who won two Super Bowls with the Denver Broncos was hired by the Redskins in January. Haynesworth skipped offseason workouts because he didn’t want to play nose tackle in the 3-4 defense the new coaches were installing, preferring instead to play in a

football is ... superior, it’s terrific.” The Broncos (3-9) lost 17 of their last 22 games under McDaniels and he sent some talented players packing, most notably Jay Cutler, Brandon Marshall and Peyton Hillis. He also traded away several draft picks in deals that backfired, resulting in a run-ofthe-mill roster whose lone star, cornerback Champ Bailey, is probably playing his final month in Denver. Bowlen still owes Shanahan $3.5 million next season and McDaniels is owed $6.7 million over the next two years, although the Broncos could try to reduce that amount by contending McDaniels was fired for cause, something Ellis declined to comment on. McDaniels’ agent, Bob LaMonte, didn’t return messages Tuesday. The Broncos don’t have a timetable for hiring a new coach, they haven’t begun a search and they’re not even sure who will do the hiring. It could be a general manager will be hired first and he’ll make the call. Ellis said he still thinks the Broncos’ head coaching position is a plum job in the NFL, and Studesville will be the first one lined up for an interview. “Eric’s got a four-week audition,” Ellis said. While names such as Jon Gruden and Bill Cowher are being bandied about, Air Force coach Troy Calhoun, a former assistant on Shanahan’s staff who could burnish the team’s tattered image, said Tuesday he has no plans to leave the Academy. The Broncos initially stuck by McDaniels, who was fined $50,000 for failing to notify the league that his videographer had broken NFL rules by taping an opponent’s practice. The team and the league determined that Scarnecchia, who was fired, had acted alone. But much of the public didn’t buy that, leading to widespread accusations that the Broncos were cheaters. Bowlen gave McDaniels a vote of confidence on Nov. 29 but quickly tempered his remarks with a statement saying a decision would be made on McDaniels’ future at season’s end. After the Broncos’ 10-6 loss at Kansas City on Sunday, Bowlen decided he’d seen enough. “There were a bunch of factors that went into Mr. Bowlen’s decision and if you add them all up it was just too overwhelming for Josh and the organization to overcome and so the decision was made,” Ellis said, adding: “And there wasn’t any point at that point delaying it.” So, McDaniels was summoned to the owner’s office as the team finished up a conditioning run. Several hours later, he drove off in his silver Range Rover with a honk and a wave. The Broncos were left trying to restore the franchise’s integrity and battered image. “We’ve got a long way to go,” Ellis said. “We’ve got a LONG way to go.” One way the organization could start winning back the fans is to expand John Elway’s consulting role, perhaps by making him the team’s top football executive. “The conversations that we’ve had with John clearly indicate one thing, and that is he loves the Broncos and he loves Denver and he wants to help if he can,” Ellis said. “I don’t know where that’s going to go, if anywhere.” McDaniels’ ouster leaves the future of several players in doubt, most notably raw rookie quarterback Tim Tebow, the 25th pick in the draft. Shortly before he was fired, McDaniels said he was reticent to turn to the former Florida star with Kyle Orton having such a good season and Tebow lacking seasoning. Ellis said Bowlen has no opinion on Tebow’s playing time. “Pat’s never made a decision like that or asked a coach to play a certain player and I don’t think he’s going to ask that of Eric,” Ellis said. Ellis said he was speaking on Bowlen’s behalf because the owner has entrusted him with all the day-to-day operations for the organization, “and there have been a lot of things that have happened to our organization that are not good and I feel partially — if not close to totally — responsible for, on his behalf.” McDaniels is the fourth disciple of New England coach Bill Belichick to get fired from his first head coaching job, joining Romeo Crennel with Cleveland, Eric Mangini with

scheme that would showcase his talent and help achieve his goal of becoming “the best defense tackle to ever play this game.” Shanahan told Haynesworth to go find another team, contingent upon giving up a $21 million contract bonus due on April 1. Haynesworth didn’t want to give up that much money, so he stayed on the roster and remained disgruntled. He boycotted a mandatory minicamp, drawing a $10,000 fine and searing comments about being “selfish” from defensive captain London Fletcher. He became a league-wide punch line when he needed 10 days to pass a conditioning test at the start of training camp. He complained about playing with the backups in preseason games. He received sympathetic words and support from Shanahan and the rest of the team when he missed a regular season game following the death of his half brother in a motorcycle accident, but he waited so long to return that the coach made him inactive for the following game as well. Then, last week, Haynesworth had a lackluster practice on Thursday, was late for a meeting on Friday and was also limited at Friday’s practice because of an unspecified illness. Haynesworth denied a television report that he appeared “hung over” at practice, saying he had gone out the night before and went home early because he “wasn’t feeling good.” the Jets and Charlie Weis with Notre Dame. “I was disappointed to see that for Josh. Unfortunately, I know what it feels like,” said Belichick, who was fired from his first job, in Cleveland.

Elizabeth Edwards dies at 61 CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) — Elizabeth Edwards, who closely advised her husband in two bids for the presidency and advocated for health care even as her own health and marriage publicly crumbled, died Tuesday after a six-year struggle with cancer. She was 61. She died at her North Carolina home surrounded by her three children, siblings, friends and her estranged husband, John, the family said. “Today we have lost the comfort of Elizabeth’s presence but, she remains the heart of this family,” the family said in a statement. “We love her and will never know anyone more inspiring or full of life. On behalf of Elizabeth we want to express our gratitude to the thousands of kindred spirits who moved and inspired her along the way. Your support and prayers touched our entire family.” She was first diagnosed with breast cancer in 2004, in the final days of her husband’s vice presidential campaign. The Democratic John KerryJohn Edwards ticket lost to incumbent President George W. Bush. John Edwards launched a second bid for the White House in 2007, and the Edwardses decided to continue even after doctors told Elizabeth that her cancer had spread. He lost the nomination to Barack Obama. The couple separated in January after he admitted fathering a child with a campaign videographer. Elizabeth Edwards had focused in recent years on advocating health care reform, often wondering aloud about the plight of those who faced the same

of kind of physical struggles she did but without her personal wealth. She had also shared with the public the most intimate struggles of her bouts with cancer, writing and speaking about the pain of losing her hair, the efforts to assure her children about their mother’s future and the questions that lingered about how many days she had left to live. President Barack Obama said he spoke to John Edwards and the Edwardses’ daughter, Cate, on Tuesday afternoon to offer condolences. “In her life, Elizabeth Edwards knew tragedy and pain,” Obama said in a statement. “Many others would have tur ned inward; many others in the face of such adversity would have given up. But through all that she

endured, Elizabeth revealed a kind of fortitude and grace that will long remain a source of inspiration.” The president called her a tenacious advocate for fixing the health care system and fighting poverty. “Our country has benefited from the voice she gave to the cause of building a society that lifts up all those left behind,” Obama said. Elizabeth Edwards and her family had informed the public that she had weeks, if not days, left when they announced on Monday that doctors had told her that further treatment would do no good. Ever the public figure, Edwards thanked supporters on her Facebook page. “The days of our lives, for all of us, are numbered,” she wrote. “We

know that. And yes, there are certainly times when we aren’t able to muster as much strength and patience as we would like. It’s called being human. But I have found that in the simple act of living with hope, and in the daily effort to have a positive impact in the world, the days I do have are made all the more meaningful and precious. And for that I am grateful.” Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, one of John Edwards’ rivals for the Democratic nomination in 2008, said the country “has lost a passionate advocate for building a more humane and just society,” while the Edwardses’ family and friends “have lost so much more — a loving mother, constant guardian and wise counselor.”

DEAR ABBY: I am an 80-year-old woman, happily married for 51 years. The other day, my hairdresser (in her 20s) asked me about my sex life with my husband! I feel this is a private matter and none of her business, but I did not want to sound rude. Can you think of a snappy answer to such a personal question? STILL IN LOVE WITH MY HUSBAND

DEAR STILL IN LOVE: Your hairdresser appears to have been sniffing too much hairspray, which has addled her judgment. The response to her impertinent question should have been to say with a smile, “Honey, you’ll just have to wait until you’re our age and find out for yourself.”  DEAR ABBY: I am a happily single 22year-old male. My boss, who is happily married, is extremely enthusiastic about finding me a woman. He is aware that I am OK with being single, but he feels it is his duty to find me a girlfriend. At first, it was only slightly irritating. However, this matchmaker game has gotten out of hand. It has escalated into him printing up fliers with my photo on them, inviting women to sign up for a date with me. What should I do about this?

Tell your boss firmly that you are happy as a single person, that when you decide to settle down you won’t need anyone’s help, and you want the matchmaking stopped. To say that what your boss has done is inappropriate is an understatement. And if it doesn’t stop, it is unwelcome conduct of a sexual nature — and could qualify as harassment.

She mentions “moving back for good,” “I hate it here,” “Quit your job and take less money.” Abby, I have a great job, and have told Louise to fly home as often as she wants. This scenario repeats each summer and increases in intensity. I know I’m going to wake up one day and not have a wife, because it seems her only solution is to move back. I didn’t like anything about the state we came from and was glad to leave. I moved there for my first wife and lost out on 14 years of things I loved to do. I’m bitter about it to this day.

Dear Heloise: Can applesauce be used instead of cooking oil in baking cakes? Nella Dean Osborne, via e-mail

Yes! Applesauce is a great substitute for oil, and it is a 1:1 ratio, meaning you can substitute 1 cup of applesauce for 1 cup of oil. It’s best to start off by substituting half of the oil in a recipe with applesauce first. Applesauce will make the cake sweeter and softer than oil typically does. If you like the way the cake tastes, then next time try upping the amount a little. Some cake-mix boxes even have suggestions for low-fat and no-cholesterol alternatives. Applesauce is not going to be as good in cookies unless you like cookies to have a cakelike consistency. Happy baking!

NY photographer of young, nude Brooke Shields dies Roswell Daily Record

NEW YORK (AP) — Garry Gross, a fashion photographer known for his 1970s nude images of Brooke Shields, taken when she was 10 years old, has died in Manhattan, his sister said Tuesday. He was 73. His sister, Linda Gross, said he died Nov. 30 from a heart attack at his home in the Greenwich Village neighborhood. “He’ll be sorely missed by family and friends alike,” his sister said when reached by The Associated Press by telephone at his studio. Though Garry Gross earned his reputation as a celebrity image-maker — his pictures graced the covers of albums by Whitney Houston and Lou Reed — in 2002 he switched careers and became certified as a dog trainer. Most recently, he had turned to photographing portraits of canines, including such notable dogs as talk show host Rachael Ray’s pit bull Isaboo. But it was the 1970s images of Shields that marked his career most significantly. In 1975, the actress’ mother, Teri Shields, consented to allow her daugh-

ter, then a child model, to be photographed nude for a Playboy Press publication. She and her mother earned $450 for the shoot, which included a full-frontal nude image of the girl standing in a bathtub. When Shields’ acting career took off years later, she said she was embarrassed by the continued circulation of the images. At 17, Shields sued Gross in New York to stop him from selling the images, arguing they were an invasion of her privacy and caused her embarrassment. But after a lower court granted her an injunction, the state’s Court of Appeals decided 4 to 3 that the teenager could not break the contract signed by her mother that allowed Gross to take the pictures. The court said Gross could continue to market the photos except to pornographic publications. The photo shoot continued to make headlines decades later. In 2009, one of the images, appropriated by American artist Richard Prince for a work, had to be withdrawn by the Tate Modern museum in London

after Scotland Yard warned that the image could break obscenity laws. Jane Feldman, who managed the studio on Broadway and East 20th Street where the photographs of Shields were taken, said they were part of a series intended to explore young women coming of age. “Garry saw it as art,” she said. “It’s an exploration, but it was done with great respect,” she added. “Yes, it’s intriguing, it’s provocative.” But she said the protracted court battle cost him his career, saddling him with legal fees and marring his reputation among art directors. “He went through periods of times where he was really angry about it,” she said. Gross was born in New York City on Nov. 6, 1937. After college, he studied under photographers Francesco Scavullo, Lisette Model and Richard Avedon. After winning the court case against Shields in 1981, Gross went to Italy, where he worked for an agency. Upon returning to the U.S., he left the fashion industry and became a dog trainer in 2002.

It was while training dogs that he became interested in photographing them and soon grew interested in the plight of senior dogs, his sister said.

“He was very concerned about the destiny of old dogs,” Linda Gross said. “When their owners die, they end up in shelters. But people don’t typically

want to take them home.” She said he had hoped to produce a book about aging dogs and had taken many photographs for the yetunpublished work.

NEW YORK (AP) — Three days before he was gunned down, John Lennon complained about his critics — saying they wer e just inter ested in “dead her oes” — and talked optimistically about his family and futur e, musing that he had “plenty of time” to accomplish some of his life goals. Lennon’s final interview was released by Rolling Stone on Wednesday, the 30th anniversary of his death, to The Associated Press; it will be on magazine stands on Friday. While brief excerpts of Jonathan Cott’s interview with Lennon were released for a 1980 Rolling Stone cover story days after Lennon’s death, this is the first time the entire interview has been published. “His words are totally joyous and vibrant and hopeful and subversive and fearless,” said Cott in an interview on Tuesday. “He didn’t mince words.” Lennon saves some of his harshest wor ds for critics who were perennially disappointed with Lennon’s path, in both music and in his life, after leaving the Beatles. “These critics with the illusions they’ve created about artists — it’s like idol worship,” he said. “They only like people when they’re on their way up ... I cannot be on the way up again. “What they want is dead heroes, like Sid Vicious and James Dean. I’m not interested in being a dead (expletive) hero. .. So forget ’em, forget ’em.” He also predicted that Bruce Springsteen, then hailed as r ock’s bright future, would endure the same critical barbs: “And God help Bruce Springsteen when they decide he’s no longer God. ... They’ll turn on him, and I hope he survives it.” But Lennon also talked about trying to be a good father to his youngest son Sean, lear ning how to relate to a child (he admitted he wasn’t good at play) and spoke of his strong bond with wife Yoko Ono: “I’ve selected to work with ... only two people: Paul McCartney and Yoko Ono. ... That ain’t bad picking.” At 40, he was also reflective of what he had accomplished so far in life and exploring life’s themes, and r emained committed to his goal of peace and love on earth. “I’m not claiming divinity. I’ve never claimed purity of soul. I’ve never claimed to have the

answers to life. I only put out songs and answer questions as honestly as I can ... But I still believe in peace, love and understanding.” Cott interviewed Lennon at his apartment and at his r ecor d studio. The interview was originally

planned for a cover story for Lennon and Ono’s upcoming album “Double Fantasy,” but in the rush to put out a story after Lennon was shot to death by Mark David Chapman, only snippets were used. Cott said he never went back to the three hours

worth of tapes until a few months ago when he was cleaning out his closet. “On a strip of magnetic tape, it was sort of a miracle that first of all, the tape had not degraded after 30 years,” he said. “All of this sudden, this guy’s voice, totally alive ...

just made me feel so inspired that I felt that I should really transcribe the whole thing.” Cott said he was struck by how much he was thinking about his life and mortality. “Ther e wer e a lot of strange consideration of

where he was and what he felt like sort of in the middle of his journey,” Cott said. “I think it was like a mid-life meditation, I was struck by that.” The magazine also included an essay by Ono recalling her final days with her husband.

Haiti cholera likely from UN troops, expert Wednesday, December 8, 2010

PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti (AP) — A contingent of U.N. peacekeepers is the likely source of a cholera outbreak in Haiti that has killed at least 2,000 people, a French scientist said in a report obtained Tuesday by The Associated Press. Epidemiologist Renaud Piarroux concluded that the cholera originated in a tributary of Haiti’s Artibonite river, next to a U.N. base outside the town of Mirebalais. He was sent by the French government to assist Haitian health officials in determining the source of the outbreak, a French Foreign Ministry official said Tuesday. “No other hypothesis could be found to explain the outbreak of a cholera epidemic in this village ... not affected by the earthquake earlier this year and located dozens of kilometers from the coast and (tent) camps,” he wrote in a report that has not been pub-


Roswell Daily Record

licly released. The report also calls for a further investigation of the outbreak, improved medical surveillance and sanitation procedures for U.N. peacekeeping troops and better support for Haitian health authorities. The AP obtained a copy of the report from an official who released it on condition of anonymity. Piarroux confirmed he had authored the report but declined in an e-mail interview to discuss his findings. Copies were sent to U.N. and Haitian officials, the foreign ministry confirmed. U.N. spokesman Martin Nesirky told reporters in New York that there is still no conclusive evidence that its base was the source of the outbreak. He said the organization “remains very receptive to any scientific debate or investigation on this.”

Lawmakers OK brutal budget

DUBLIN (AP) — Lawmakers narrowly approved tax hikes Tuesday as part of Ireland’s most brutal budget in history, a 6 billion ($8 billion) slash-and-tax plan imposed as a key condition of the nation’s international bailout. Rejection following Tuesday’s publication of the long-awaited 2011 budget would have forced Prime Minister Brian Cowen’s resignation and snap elections — and raised doubts about whether Ireland could tap 67.5 billion ($90 billion) from the European Union and the International Monetary Fund. But Cowen survived thanks to an 82-77 vote in favor of midnight hikes in taxes on vehicle fuel. The complex budget faces several more parliamentary tests between now and February, with at least three separate votes for major bills on welfare cuts, sweeping expansion of the income-tax net and other measures. Unveiling the budget, Finance Minister Brian Lenihan said every household in this country of 4.5 million must take hits on their net incomes to close Ireland’s staggering deficit. Lenihan said Ireland had no choice but to slash spending and raise taxes immediately because the country this year is spending more than 50 billion on daily government activities and has committed at least 45 billion to bail out its banks — yet is collecting just 31 billion this year in taxes. The result has been an underlying deficit this year of 11.6 percent of Ireland’s gross domestic product, second-worst in the 16-nation eurozone to fellow aid patient Greece. When exceptional bank-bailout costs are included, as European Union authorities have required, Ireland’s 2010 deficit skyrockets to a modern European record of 32 percent of GDP. Lenihan’s plan — the harshest yet of four emergency budgets unveiled since 2008 — contains 4.5 billion ($6 billion) in spending cuts and 1.5 billion ($2 billion) in tax rises. A potential further 9 billion ($12 billion) in cuts and tax hikes loom for 2012-14. He said these measures represent the minimum required to counter “the worst crisis in our history” and put Ireland on course to reduce its deficit to the eurozone limit of 3 percent by 2015 as EU authorities expect. As Lenihan spoke, outside the wrought-iron parliament gates, several hundred left-wing protesters endured icy weather to denounce the cuts as likely to hit the poorest citizens the hardest. Some banged drums, blew whistles, clanked cattle bells and tooted horns. Many more waved placards demanding that Ireland’s state-aided banks default on their hundreds of billions in debts to foreign banks — a notion that Lenihan dismissed as economically suicidal. The finance chief stressed that Ireland faced no easy choices as it deepens its austerity measures while simultaneously seeking to grow its economy. He called the 80 billion ($105 billion) that Ireland’s banks are estimated to have lost on dud property loans “unforgivable” — yet defended the need for Ireland’s taxpayers to foot the lion’s share of that bailout bill rather than the foreign banks that loaned Dublin institutions the money.

Piarroux could not prove there was cholera inside the base or among the soldiers, a point the U.N. has repeatedly used to deny its soldiers brought the disease to Haiti or that its sanitation procedures were responsible for releasing it into the environment. He writes that military doctors said there were no instances of cholera within the unit. But he also hinted strongly at a cover-up. “It can not be ruled out that steps have been taken to remove the suspected fecal matter and to erase the traces of an epidemic of cholera among the soldiers,” he wrote. The report also notes that septic tanks and pipes that would have helped to confirm sanitation problems and the presence of the bacteria were no longer at the base when he visited.

AP Photo Charles Ble Goude talks with other members of incumbent President Laurent Gbagbo’s new cabinet in an antechamber at the presidency in Abidjan, Ivory Coast, Tuesday. Gbagbo, who the U.N. says lost Ivory Coast’s presidential election, is going ahead with naming his new cabinet.

UN, African leaders call on Gbagbo to step ABIDJAN, Ivory Coast (AP) — The top U.N. envoy in Ivory Coast told the Security Council on Tuesday that there was “only one winner” of the recent presidential election — and it’s not Laurent Gbagbo. Speaking via video link from Abidjan, Choi Young-jin urged the United Nations to take action against Gbagbo to safeguard the result of the vote, on the same day that a regional bloc of 15 countries in West Africa suspended Ivory Coast’s membership and warned Gbagbo to yield power immediately. The continuing uncertainty over what will happen next in Ivory Coast led hundreds of people to flee the West African country, and the U.N. also began evacuating some 500 staffers. The U.N. has said that Gbagbo’s opponent, Alassane Ouattara, won the vote. Gbagbo has turned his back on international opinion and defiantly went ahead Tuesday with the naming of his Cabinet at a ceremony in the presidential palace, making clear he intends to rule regardless of what most of the world says. Across town in an aging hotel, the man considered by the U.N., U.S. and other regional powers to be the rightful winner of the race held his own Cabinet meeting, minus the pomp. Alassane Ouattara, a soft-spoken economist who spent years at the International Monetary Fund, is being waited on by the

hotel’s staff and is guarded by U.N. peacekeepers. They have rolled out over 1-mile (2-kilometer) of coiled razor wire to surround the Golf Hotel and his prime minister has told foreign diplomats that they need further military reinforcement because they do not feel safe. Gbagbo appears to be backed by the army and if he does not agree to step down, the only way to remove him may be through military intervention. He controls the apparatus of state, including access to the glass-walled palace which is the seat of government, a fact he made clear as he zoomed in past the palace’s shooting fountains in the presidential limousine, and then walked up the red carpet to oversee the installation of his government. In his briefing to the Security Council, Choi, the U.N. envoy, recalled how the country’s electoral commission declared Ouattara the winner of the election with 54 percent of the vote. That result was immediately overturned by the constitutional council, headed by a close advisor to Gbagbo, who threw out the votes from Ouattara’s strongholds. Although the constitution gives the council the final say over the vote, Gbagbo signed an accord following the country’s civil war agreeing that U.N. would certify the results. Once considered an African success

stories, Ivory Coast’s economy was destroyed by the civil war that broke out in 2002. Gbagbo, who was already president when the war broke out, failed to hold elections in 2005 when his term expired because armed rebels still controlled the northern half of the country. The country remained in political deadlock, with repeated outbursts of fighting, until 2007, when a deal was signed by all the parties paving the way for election. In the three years that followed, the ballot was rescheduled at least six times, with Gbagbo complaining over technicalities including how many Ivorian parents a person needed to have to be allowed to vote and the makeup of the electoral commission. At a televised debate on the eve of last weekend’s vote, the country appeared ready to turn a page as Gbagbo shook Ouattara’s hand and promised to abide by the results of the electoral commission. The standoff has many worried that Ivory Coast may return to war. For several nights, residents in pro-Ouattara neighborhoods say they heard sporadic shooting and at least 20 people have been shot to death since the contested election, according to Amnesty International. Choi said that as the certifier of the Oct. 31 runoff, he examined some 20,000 tally sheets provided by Ivorian authorities.

Japanese probe reaches Venus but then shuts itself

AP Photo In this artist’s rendering by Akihiro Ikeshita released via Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency, the Japanese probe Akatsuki is shown reaching Venus.

TOKYO (AP) — A Japanese space probe sent to the thick clouds of Venus shut itself down, and its future looks as hazy as the planet it was built to study. The probe, called Akatsuki, which means “dawn,” reached Venus on Tuesday to orbit Earth’s neighbor on a two-year mission. But communication problems left scientists in the dark about whether it was successfully in orbit. An American scientist on the probe’s research team said the probe shut itself partially down and is in safe mode. That means it is sending back signals indi-

cating it is alive, but not transmitting any data. At first, controllers back on Earth lost contact with the probe and got modulating signals indicating that spaceship may be wobbling a bit, said Sanjay Limaye, a University of WisconsinMadison professor who is one of five American scientists on the Akatsuki research team. But after a few hours, engineers at NASA and the Japanese space agency, JAXA, were able to lock on the probe’s signal and found it shut itself down to protect itself, Limaye said. “That means at least

things are looking better if not perfectly the best,” he said. It would be the first time Japan has ever placed a spacecraft into orbit around another planet and comes after the country recently brought a probe back from a trip to an asteroid. Russia, the United States and the Europeans have successfully explored other planets. The Russian space program has been sending missions to Venus since 1961 with more than 30 attempts. Its early missions were marred with many failures. Limaye said it was unclear if the probe was

successfully inserted into orbit around Venus, but Gerald Schubert, a University of California, Los Angeles, scientist who is on the probe team, said he thinks it is in some kind of orbit around the hazy planet. “There appears to be a problem, but exactly what the problem is I’m not sure,” Schubert said. Japan has long been one of the world’s leading spacefaring nations. It was the first Asian country to put a satellite in orbit around the Earth — in 1970 — and has developed a highly reliable booster rocket in its H-2 series.
