FLIERS NOT FANS OF PATDOWNS

November 16, 2010

Roswell officials announced a $1.25 million settlement agreement Monday involving a August 2008 lawsuit against the city and its police department. Mayor Del Jurney held a news conference in City Hall after a federal court judge’s gag order was lifted on the case brought by family members of Javier Aguilar, who died in police custody following a physical altercation in March 2008. The announcement came after city councilors spent more than one hour behind closed doors before unanimously approving a $350,000 budget adjustment for the settlement on Nov. 11. The remaining $900,000 is being paid by the city’s insurance carrier.

Working hard

“This decision to settle is not an indictment of our officers or our police department,” said Mayor Del Jurney, who told reporters that the decision came after weighing the potential for much larger damages if the city fought the lawsuit in a trial. “Through the course of the initial preparation for trial, strategies were presented that could have created a devastating financial judgement against the city of Roswell,” he said. “Additionally, civil actions could have been pursued against the employees, which potentially would have devastated their future professional careers.” The suit was brought by Miguel Aguilar, Javier Aguilar’s brother and a New Mexico State Police officer, city officials said. Interim Chief Dennis Kintigh was absent from the news conference and declined comment.

“At this point, I’m just not prepared to comment on this lawsuit,” he said. According to the mayor’s description of the events of the incident, a physical altercation between police and Javier Aguilar ensued after officers attempted to handcuff Aguilar in an attempt to detain him on a mental health order. The official cause of death is a matter of dispute between city officials and Aguilar’s family. The lawsuit claimed Aguilar suffocated due to the position he was placed in by police after being restrained. City officials attributed the death to cardiac arrest. An investigation by the New Mexico State Police following the death, cleared the Roswell Police Department of any criminal wrongdoing. “The case has closed and we move forward,” Jurney said.

Girl Scouts of the Desert Southwest, a United Way agency, located at 1307-B E. College Blvd., has had a presence in Chaves County since 1925. “In March of 2009, we realigned with two other councils to create Girl Scouts of the Desert Southwest,” Rebecca Sherwood, senior membership manager of Girl Scouts of the Desert Southwest, said. “We’re a council that serves about 92,000 square miles. We serve about 15,000 members, (including) staff members, girls and adult members. (Many are from) southern New Mexico, West Texas and all the way down to El Paso.” The Girl Scouts offers a variety of programs for girls that are geared toward

character development, leadership and encouraging service. Its core group of programs focus on the community, environment, healthy living, literacy and math, science and technology. “People [usually] think of cookies and crafts when they think of girl-scouting, but there’s so many things that are available to the girls,” Sherwood said. Several service opportunities are available for Girl Scout members.

Cholera protesters barricade Haiti city PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti (AP) — Protesters who hold U.N. soldiers from Nepal responsible for a deadly outbreak of cholera that has killed nearly 1,000 people barricaded Haiti’s second-largest city on Monday, burning cars and stoning a peacekeeping base. The protesters also blame the Nepalese unit there for the death of a Haitian youth at the base in August. Demonstrations began in Cap-Haitien about 6 a.m. local time and within hours paralyzed much of the northern port city, national television reporter Johnny Joseph told The Associated Press by phone. An AP television cameraman trying to reach the area was

repelled late Monday by protesters throwing rocks and bottles from a barricade. Protesters have also targeted other U.N. bases and Haitian national police stations in the city. Haitian radio reported a police substation was burned. U.N. soldiers and Haitian police fired tear gas and projectiles to disperse at least 1,000 protesters at the Nepalese base, Haitian radio reported. Joseph said a Haitian was killed in the melee, but had no details and the report could not be immediately confirmed. At least 12 Haitians have been See HAITI, Page A8

Gonzales needs Thanksgiving help JONATHAN ENTZMINGER RECORD STAFF WRITER

Organizers for the Community Volunteer Program’s free Thanksgiving dinner are low on resources. “The economy is hurting and people are not giving,” Johnny Gonzales, director of the Community Volunteer Program said. With Thanksgiving Day fast approaching, Gonzales is calling on the community to help the program gather more goods for its Thanksgiving dinner, especially turkeys. “We have a lot of people that are coming,” Gonzales said. “People have called and said ‘Where is the dinner at? We’re going to be there.’ Three hundred and fifty to 400 shut-ins have called in and said that they want food delivered to them.” So far, the Community Volunteer Program has gathered 15 turkeys for an event that usually feeds between 800 and 1,000 people. That’s more than 50 turkeys short of what the program had one year ago. Gonzales said that cooking utensils, pans, volunteers and other resources are also needed On Monday, Lawrence Brothers IGA, 900 W. Second St., donated two 20-

A new day: Change coming — right now

WASHINGTON (AP) — Old and new Washington collided on Capitol Hill Monday, and new won. Within moments of flicking on the Senate lights, Sen. Mitch McConnell announced that when it came to pork barrel politics he had changed his mind. The Senate’s staunchest fan of so-called earmarks reversed course and supported a ban on those special spending requests, a bow to the tea partiers and others in the populist, antiestablishment wave that gave the GOP control of the House and six more seats in the Senate. “Old habits aren’t easy to break, but sometimes they must be,” McConnell said on the Senate floor. His announcement put an exclamation mark on the return of lawmakers to Capitol Hill Monday for a “lame duck” session before the newcomers take their places officially in January. There’s still major business for the current Congress, from tax cuts that will or won’t be preserved to possible special Social Security checks to spending bills to keep the government going. Monday was an extraordinary day that blended Congresses past, present and future as the fading Democratic majority began to yield. It wasn’t going quietly. For the more than 100 rookies dining and orienting around campus, there was no starker lesson than the spectacle of Rep. Charles Rangel, a oncemighty committee chairman now facing ethics charges — four decades after his arrival was sup-

Police were sent to West Byrne Street on Friday. The victim stated that when she returned home from work her house had been ransacked. She reported a Dell desktop computer, a Dell laptop, a telescope, an e-machines monitor, a Wii game console and a Sony DVD player stolen. The estimated value of the missing items is $2,050. •Police were dispatched to the Home Depot, 2350 N. Main St., on Sunday, to take a report of vehicle burglary. The subject broke into the pick up by pulling down the unlocked tailgate to gain entry into the locked camper and removed a Honda generator, worth $2,800 and a Craftman tool box and tools, worth $300.

Shoplifting

Police were called to the Roswell Convention and Civic Center, 912 N. Main St., on Sunday, where two vendors at the Pecos Valley Potters Guild’s Art Show and Sale had items stolen from their stalls. One reported that she showed a gold bracelet, valued at $150, to someone and turned her back for a minute. When she returned, the bracelet was missing. The second vendor showed the same individual a silver watch, priced at $92, and then realized sometime later that the watch was gone. Anyone with information about these or any other crimes is asked to call Crime Stoppers, 1888-594-TIPS (8477). Callers can remain anonymous and may be eligible for a reward.

posed to herald the shakeup of an old, corrupt political order. “My reputation — 50 years of public service! — has to suffer,” the New York Democrat cried out before stalking out of his ethics trial. There were plenty of other lessons, pedestrian as well as profound for the new folks: not only how to be an employer, a first for some of them, and how to avoid Washington’s ethical traps, but also where to eat, how to vote, how to get to the subway beneath the Capitol, even which elevators to use. As for politics — in case any politicians had missed the message of the Nov. 2 elections — triumphant conservative activists, many of them tea partiers, rallied on the Capitol lawn with signs urging Congress to heed their call for small-

er government and greater accountability. “Phase One, Nov. 2010. Complete,” read one sign. “Phase Two. Nov. 2012. We are watching you.” Acutely aware of that, longtime lawmakers began to let change flow through the corridors of power, already heavy with the cold-weather scent of fireplaces ablaze in the Capitol’s grand parlors. President Barack Obama, just back from a 10-day trip to the other side of the globe, said he would be ready to talk policy when the Republicans were finished celebrating. He said of his upcoming meeting with congressional leaders: “I’m sure it will be very relaxing.” “Campaigning is very different from governing. All of us learn that. And they’re still flush with victory,” he said. “We’re going to have a

whole bunch of time next year for some serious philosophical debates.” Obama, who earlier had endorsed a crackdown on ear marks, praised McConnell’s announcement, but not all Democrats were on the anti-earmarks bandwagon. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s spokesman, Jim Manley, said, “From delivering $100 million in military projects for Nevada to funding education and public transportation projects in the state, Sen. Reid makes no apologies for delivering for the people of Nevada.” Change was evident at the lunch table, too. In the Senate, 16 newly elected senators — 13 of them Republicans — were invited to dine with veterans, including some not returning next year.

HOW TO HELP YOUR AGENT

When selecting a new home, location is paramount. The first step is defining the geographic area in which you are willing to buy. Then list the qualities of a desirable neighborhood, in order of their importance. How far are you willing to travel to work, for shopping, or entertainment? Is access to public transportation important? Traffic patterns may influ-

ence your choice; a quiet, out-of-the-way neighborhood, or quick access to major thoroughfares. If you have children, schools and parks are important. Can they walk to a movie or shops, or will you be the chauffer? Save time by letting your agent know what’s important to you. ©

CHAPPAQUA, N.Y. (AP) — Some parents in a New York City suburb are upset because a local politician called police on two 13-year-old boys for selling cupcakes and other baked goods without a permit. The Journal News in Westchester County reported Monday that New Castle Councilman Michael Wolfensohn had called police last month on the boys. Andrew DeMarchis and Kevin Graff had a brisk business selling cupcakes, cookies, brownies and Rice Krispie treats in a Chappaqua (CHAP’-uh-kwah) park. Kevin’s mother, Laura Graff, says the teens are “good kids” who were scared by the police call. She said Monday they haven’t set up shop anywhere since. Wolfensohn says rules are rules. But he concedes calling the police might have been a half-baked decision.

Myanmar’s Suu Kyi seeks to revive political party Roswell Daily Record

YANGON, Myanmar (AP) — Myanmar democracy icon Aung San Suu Kyi began the nuts and bolts work of reviving her political movement Monday, consulting lawyers about having her now-disbanded party declared legal again. Suu Kyi was released over the weekend from 7 1/2 years in detention. On Sunday, she told thousands of wildly cheering supporters at the headquarters of her National League for Democracy that she would continue to fight for human rights and the rule of law in the militarycontrolled nation. The 65-year -old Nobel Peace laureate must balance the expectations of the country’s pro-democracy movement with the realities of freedom that could be withdrawn any time by the regime. Although her party is officially dissolved, it has continued operating with the same structure. But without official recognition, it is in legal limbo, leaving it — and her — vulnerable to gover nment crackdowns. The junta recently staged Myanmar’s first elections in 20 years, and in a step that will blunt some of the longstanding international criticism of its conduct, released Suu Kyi a week later. Having made those ostensible moves toward democratization after five

decades of military rule, it is unlikely to make more concessions — like restoring the NLD’s legal status — without getting something back from Suu Kyi and her party, such as dropping opposition to Western sanctions. Suu Kyi, who has been detained for 15 of the past 21 years, has indicated she would continue with her political activity but not whether she would challenge the military with mass rallies and other activities. She has been noncommittal on sanctions, saying that she would support lifting them if the people of Myanmar provided strong justification for doing so. In an interview Monday with the BBC, Suu Kyi said she sought “a nonviolent revolution” and of fered some reassuring words for the military. “I don’t want to see the military falling. I want to see the military rising to dignified heights of professionalism and true patriotism,” she said. The British-educated Suu Kyi also said she did not fear being detained again. “I’m not scared,” she said. “I know that there is always a possibility, of course. They’ve done it back in the past, they might do it again.” Nyan Win, who is her

Suu Kyi began the nuts and bolts work of reviving her political movement Monday, consulting lawyers about having her now-disbanded party declared legal again, her spokesman said.

lawyer as well as a party spokesman, said Suu Kyi met with her lawyers Monday morning and also party officials from areas outside Yangon who have been keeping her political network alive during years of repression. He said Myanmar’s High Court this Thursday will

hold a hearing to decide whether to accept a case from Suu Kyi arguing that her party’s dissolution “is not in accordance with the law.” The party was disbanded earlier this year under a new law because it failed to reregister for Nov. 7 elections, complaining conditions set by the junta

were unfair and undemocratic. Suu Kyi’s side says the new Election Commission has no right to deregister parties that were registered under a different Election Commission in 1990. The party also contends that the court is legally bound to hear their case.

Full results from this month’s elections have yet to be released, but figures so far give a militarybacked party a solid majority in both houses of parliament. In London, British Prime Minister David Cameron told the House of Commons he talked to Suu Kyi by telephone on Monday morning. “Her tenacity and courage in the face of injustice has been truly inspiring. I spoke to her this mor ning to pass on the congratulations of everyone in the country on her release and her remarkable stand on democracy and human rights,” Cameron told lawmakers. “We must now work to ensure that her release is followed by freedom for more than 2,000 other political prisoners.” U.S. State Department spokesman P.J. Crowley said the Obama administration will ask the regime about its plans for other political prisoners and ethnic minorities. “You could see over the weekend in the public response to the release of Aung San Suu Kyi that the Burmese people yearn for a different kind of society, an opportunity to participate in the future of their country,” he said.

Court affirms conviction in prison guard killing Man nabs thousands SANTA FE (AP) — The state Supreme Court has upheld the conviction of inmate Robert Young for the killing of a prison guard more than a decade ago. The court unanimously affirmed Young’s convictions of felony murder for killing guard Ralph Garcia, the attempted murder of inmate Adrian Mares and other charges, including possession of a deadly weapon by a prisoner. Garcia was stabbed to death during a 1999 riot at the privately operated Guadalupe County Correctional Facility near Santa Rosa. Young was sentenced to life in prison for killing Garcia and 24 years for other convictions. A life sentence requires an prisoner to serve at least 30 years before becoming eligible for parole. The court issued its unanimous decision on Friday.

UNM sues Intel Corp

ALBUQUERQUE (AP) — The University of New Mexico’s technology transfer division has filed a federal lawsuit against Intel Corp., claiming the computer chip manufacturing giant infringed on a university patent that helps in the production of advanced chips. The lawsuit, filed Monday, alleges that Intel used the technology without a license. Intel spokesman Chuck Mulloy confirms the Santa Clara, Calif.,-based company has received the complaint but says there won’t be any immediate comment. The dispute centers on double patterning lithography technology, which was patented by UNM in 2000. The president and chief executive of STC.UNM, Lisa Kuuttila (KOO-too-lah), says the research developed at the university in Albuquerque has helped the semiconductor industry build circuits that feature smaller and faster semiconductors.

LAS CRUCES (AP) — Frank Leto has been named publisher of the Las Cruces Sun-News. The 48-year -old Leto replaces Jim Maxwell, who resigned last week. Leto joins southern New Mexico’s largest newspaper after a stint as the classified and online director with Houston Community Newspapers.

He also has worked with the Dallas Morning News and publications in Sarasota, Fla., Owensboro, Ky., and his hometown of Fort Wayne, Ind., holding several management positions including advertising director, vice president and general manager. The chief executive of Texas-New Mexico Newspapers Partnership, El Paso Times publisher Sergio Salinas, says the company welcomes Leto’s experience and leadership. Leto holds a business administration degree from Indiana Wesleyan University.

He addressed the 67th convention of the National Congress of American Indians on Monday in Albuquerque. Salazar outlined issues he has been working on as Interior Secretary, including economic development on Indian lands, improved law enforcement and education, water settlements, restoring lands to tribes and energy programs in Indian country. He repeatedly stressed that the federal government must work with tribal governments on a nation-tonation basis.

of Colo. newspapers to help his friend

ASPEN, Colo.

The Aspen Daily News and The Aspen Times both printed an apology letter Friday from 23-year-old Mitchell Reed of Carbondale, who agreed to write the apology to avoid criminal theft charges. Reed stole thousands of papers on Nov. 5 because one of his friends was in that day’s police blotter in both publications for a drug arrest. A maintenance worker told police that Reed dumped the papers in trash bins behind an area grocery store, and Reed confessed to the theft. In his letter Friday, Reed apologized to newspaper employees and readers. ROSWELL DAILY RECORD

Governor’s legacy: Progress or political pals?

In June the New Mexico Film Museum closed after a short, unproductive life. It was a costcutting measure, said the Governor’s Office. The museum rarely offered a program and had no operating budget. It did pay its directors, each one politically connected, rather well ($80,000 a year for the last two). There was a flap in 2007, when the governor attempted to appoint former Secretary of State Rebecca Vigil-Giron as director, because she had no relevant experience. But none of the museum’s directors had any film experience. And so it went. When Bill Richardson took office, it wasn’t just patronage as usual. Every governor has appointed some friends and cronies; Richardson reached deep into each bureaucratic warren with his appointments. The result was to politicize state government

SHERRY ROBINSON

ALL SHE WROTE

down to its toenails. In doing that, observed former Gov. Gary Johnson, we got people who were loyal to Richardson and not necessarily to the taxpayers. For a surprisingly long time, nobody seemed to mind. The Albuquerque Journal published a long list of appointments and noted their political ties and/or contributions, and the revelations raised little dust. Richardson said he liked to hire politicians because they knew how to get things done. The trouble was, they didn’t. The first hint was the rapid rise and disappearance

of former Taos Mayor Fred Peralta, dethroned as tourism secretary by demand of the tourism industry and farmed out to the State Fair, where he became one in a series of unqualified political pals, joined by a gaggle of lower -level appointees, to mismanage the venue — this despite calls for professionalism of fair management from a task force. Their fitness for office became a recurring issue for Richardson’s political appointees. Contrast this with the experience of former Gov. Garrey Carruthers, who made one mistake in hiring the inexperienced son of a political contributor as Economic Development and Tourism Secretary. The protest was loud and the response quick; the young appointee evaporated, replaced by businessman John Dendahl, who did a good job. Why the difference? Carruthers didn’t enjoy the magic carpet ride

Roswell Daily Record

of popularity that floated Richardson’s first six years. Ironically, it was Dendahl, later the Republican candidate for governor, who predicted that cronyism and the resulting poor morale in state gover nment would dog Richardson. We pause here to acknowledge the competent appointees who, without fanfare, have worked hard for the state. The governor’s appointments weren’t all awful, but the worst of the lot stand out. Lately the fires of controversy have enveloped the 59 appointees supposedly laid off and the quiet transition of others into civil service jobs. I find both issues harder to get excited about than the damage wrought for eight years by incompetents in high positions. We still don’t know the identities of the 59, but I have to believe that most of them accepted positions in good faith and don’t deserve to be hounded while

they try to find new jobs. As for the new civil servants, every administration’s end has seen a similar scramble to security. This is hardly new. Gov.-elect Susana Martinez has named former Congresswoman Heather Wilson to lead her transition team, and they want to find “highly qualified individuals of character who want to commit themselves to Susana’s vision for New Mexico,” Wilson said. She promised fresh faces. It’s a good start. Members of the search committees are varied and knowledgeable. In the beginning, Richardson also had an impressive transition team. This time around, the process and the appointees will be scrutinized. It’s probably unrealistic to think politics will be absent, but hopefully, we’ll get a smaller, better crop of appointees. We have Bill Richardson to thank for that. © New Mexico News Services 2010

Entertainment Merchants, which will decide whether a blanket ban in California on people under age 18 being allowed to purchase certain violent video games will stand. The case has attracted attention well beyond California. According to news reports, 11 states have joined California in urging the court to uphold the law, while eight other states are on record as wanting the law struck down. During oral arguments, the justices seemed sympathetic to the idea that there should be some way to shield minors from violent games in which the player has the option of “killing, maiming, dismembering or sexually assaulting an image of a human being,” as the 2005 California statute put it. But most of the justices’ questions seemed to indicate that they think that California’s law goes too far to avoid violating the First Amendment’s protection of speech and expression. The ban, which would probably include titles like “Postal 2,” “Mortal Kombat” or “Grand Theft Auto IV,” seemed too far along the famous slippery slope for most justices, including those with normally conflicting philosophies. “What about films? What about comic books? Grimm’s Fairy Tales? Why are video games special?” asked progressive Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. To an argument that video games are something new and unique, conservative Justice Antonin Scalia shot back: “That same argument could have been made when movies first came out. They could have said, ‘Oh, we’ve had violence in Grimm’s Fairy Tales, but we’ve never had it live on the screen.’ I mean, every time there’s a new technology, you can make that argument.” The primary task of protecting children from potentially harmful activities or impressions belongs to parents, and parents vary in their concerns. It is almost impossible to prevent children from ever seeing or vicariously participating in violence conveyed through a variety of media, and part of a parent’s job is helping children to deal with that reality. An outright government ban not only violates our constitutional traditions, it simply is not helpful. Guest Editorial The Northwest Florida Daily News

Undocumented mothers have rights

Undocumented immigrants who are detained in raids have little to no rights under the flawed immigration laws in our country, but the right of a mother to keep custody of her own child should not be in question. Yet a Guatemalan woman who was jailed after a raid in a Missouri poultry plant three years ago is now having to wage a legal battle to have her U.S.-born son returned to her after he was given up for adoption without her consent.

Holding lawmakers accountable

Dear Editor: Once again, it is postmortem time! The circus is over, the tents are down and the polls are closed for another season. Half the contestants are dividing up the spoils while the other half are returning, perhaps not so happily, to their everyday lives. As always, we’ve seen the best and worst in human behavior. Most candidates for local office and some for state offices ran clean campaigns, promoting only their own aspirations, agenda and ideologies, and I commend those candidates. Unfortunately, trash politics was very much in evidence in other state contests and most national races. In the end, the citizens of this great country have renewed hope that our nation may possibly be restorable to the constitutional r epublic that it was intended to be. We owe the fr eedom movement at large, which includes many individuals, tea parties, various other groups and organizations for their dedication and accomplishment. It was through the efforts of these entities that the voters were awakened to the fact that members of their own political persuasion were systematically destroying their nation from within. Congratulations to the winners, especially to the constitutional conservatives that first had to fend-off an onslaught from contingencies of their own party in the primaries before facing the political opponent. And it didn’t stop there. A number of Republican officials across the country endorsed radical leftists over a constitutional conservative in this recent election. In doing so, they unmasked their own RINO persona and exposed their lack of principle. Perhaps the Republican Party will eventually come to understand that such behavior is disgraceful and divisive as well. Perhaps not! For a party that claims to be conservative, tolerating globalists, neo-conservatives and RINO contingencies is paradoxical. Further tolerating such liabilities will ultimately result in its total demise. The “party establishment” has absolutely no business favoring any candidate, incumbent or otherwise, prior to the primaries. Once the voters make the selection, then it is the party’s rightful function to fully support its members’ choice. And additionally, the GOP should immediately disclaim any Republican public figur e or party of ficer openly endorsing a member’s opponent. While the first round is over, the battle has just begun. There are jobs to be brought back to our shores, there is a failing economy that must be tur ned ar ound, ther e is legislation to be

Postal delays

Dear Editor: I am writing in regards to a recent problem at the post office. I mailed a Halloween package to my grandson in Edgewood., N.M., on Oct. 25. I was told by the postal worker that my package would arrive in Albuquerque that evening Oct. 25, and be delivered in Edgewood the following day Oct. 25, 2010. As of today, Oct. 30, my package has not been delivered to my grandson. At the post office annex on Hobbs Street in Roswell, I was told that all packages being distributed through Albuquerque were being delayed as the postal employees at the distribution center are upset because they did not receive a 2 percent pay raise. The postal worker at the annex told me that I am not the only customer whose package is being delayed in Albuquerque. I was advised that in the future that I should pay the extra cost for a return receipt or send it certified so my package can be tracked. This in no way assures me my package will be delivered in a timely manner, it only allows the post office to track the package, not ensure delivery. I was then told that with the holidays coming up this tactic by the postal workers in Albuquerque will delay all holiday packages going through that distribution center. I asked who I could call in Albuquerque to let this be known, I was told it wouldn’t do any good to call Albuquerque as that is where the problem lies. My phone call I was told would only serve to let Albuquerque postal workers know that their delay tactic is working. I was told to call the Edgewood, N.M.,

Dear Editor: First I want to congratulate the Republicans on their election wins on Tuesday. I am r eally looking forwar d to the improvements they are going to make in the lives of ordinary Americans and the nation itself. I have some benchmarks I will be looking at. 1 - Will they be able to get Democrats to work with them and prevent them from becoming the new party of “NO”? 2 - Will they be able to cut taxes and spending without throwing 20 percent or more of our fellow citizens under the bus? 3 - Will they be able to get the unemployment rate down to 7 percent? 4 - Will they be able to improve education to the level where 75 percent of third graders can read proficiently to that grade level? 5 - Will they begin to start repairing our crumbling infrastructure? 6 - Will they be able to reduce our dependence on foreign oil by say 10 percent? 7 - Will they find some way to deliver health care to the 40 million Americans who cannot afford health insurance or who have been dropped from their coverage when they were laid off? 8 - Will they seal the borders to cut illegal immigration down to a trickle? I know it’s impossible to seal it completely. 9 - Will they pass legislation to include

Dear Editor: Oct. 15, 2010, Lend-A-Hand of Roswell held its annual fundraiser titled “Fiesta for Food,” whose purpose was to raise awareness to the community concerning the great need that Chaves County residents are having keeping food on the table and the growing need for utility and prescription assistance. We had a successful event and we would like to extend our most sincere gratitude to those who donated their precious time and monetary contributions. Without generous donations from the public, Lend-A-Hand would not be able to exist. We would also like to thank the wonder ful board of directors who worked hard to make this event possible. We would like to give applause and thanks to Roswell High School Key Club for their service to Lend-A-Hand. They were a wonderful addition to our team of volunteers.

Books Again Used Book Store marks birthday LORETTA CLARK ROSWELL PUBLIC LIBRARY

One year ago, on Nov. 17, the Books Again Used Book Store, 404 W. Second St., opened to the public. In celebration of that event, and as a thank you to customers, everyone visiting the store on Wednesday will receive a free book. Throughout the past year and into future years, volunteers from the Friends of the Library organization donate their time and talents so readers can buy books and other materials at a reasonable cost. Most items sell for approximately one-fourth of the original cost and feature fiction and nonfiction for all ages. In addition, each month features sales on specific subjects. In November, the focus is on non-fiction religious and inspirational books with hardback books selling for $1 and paperbacks selling for 25 cents. Whether you call it recycle or reuse, Books Again is a wonderful place to shop for treasures to supplement a home library or to give as a gift. Books Again is open Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Parking is located behind the store. Books Again is operated in conjunction with the Roswell Public Library and all proceeds are used to benefit the programs and resources of the library.

Book Talk

Books within a series typically share a common setting, set of characters or timeline. They allow the reader to visit with familiar friends and meet new friends as life continues to emerge in the sequels. Rosie Klopfer, Interlibrary Loan librarian, investigates several series of books written by favorite authors. In fact, authors may write multiple series of books. Many of these titles may be found in regular and large print, paperback or as a “talking book” on compact disk, audio cassette or on playaway. The culinary mystery subgenre has the recipe for fun reading. Julie Hyzy’s “White House Chef” mysteries features Olive Paras, the first female White House chef, who just wants to focus on her job of cooking for the president’s family and preparing state banquets. In “Eggsecutive Orders,” a guest at a state dinner dies, the kitchen is closed and Tom MacKenzie, her Secret Service boyfriend, is assigned to keep Olive from meddling in the investigation.

Marxists at work

Dear Editor: Marxism is what ails us. Congress meddling in the housing market caused our recession. Its remedies of bailouts, reckless spending, crushing debt, unaffordable new liabilities (Obamacare and Bush’s Medicare Prescription Plan), and takeover of companies has resulted in lost jobs and foundering economy. This election is a repudiation of Democrats and Go along Get along Republicans. If Congress passes Cap and T rade during the lame-duck session, we’ll pay more for gas and electricity and jobs will be lost. Tax increases for job makers will worsen unemployment, and if taxes are raised on all of us, we’re talking Depression-like joblessness. The president will fight for what he’s gained. He especially wants to keep a foothold in the health care industry until insurers are put out of business so he can claim one sixth of our economy. If you ask a Democrat, perhaps your spouse or pastor, if it’s OK to force people and businesses to buy insurance or be fined to insure the uninsured, you’ll find they’re Marxist thieves. When JFK died so did “Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country,” and “A rising tide (tax cuts for the rich) lifts all boats.” If Democrats bankrupt our country, they’ll employ the unemployed and demand we pay their wages like FDR did. FDR tried to pack the Supreme Court because they found some of his ways unlawful. To raise food prices, he forced ranchers to cull cattle and made farmers destroy crops. He confiscated gold because he was a Marxist thief. His New Deal failed. Ar ming for war ended the Depression. World War II began and FDR proposed a second Bill of Rights, including rights to a home and job. Does living wage sound familiar? Congress’s duty today is to put people to work and ignite our economy. They have to let everyone, including businessmen, keep more of their earnings by halving their taxes. They need to sell what belongs in the private sector and cut spending. Marxists will say we need revenue to fill the hole Bush dug (Obama made the hole much deeper, adding more debt than all previ-

TO ALL INTERESTED AGENCIES, GROUPS AND PERSONS: On or about December 2, 2010, the City of Roswell will request the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development to release federal funds under Title I of the Housing and Community Development Act of 1974 (PL 93-383) for the following project: PROJECT TITLE OR NAME: Roswell Working Mother’s Day Nursery (Child Care Facility)

PURPOSE OR NATURE OF PROJECT: Improvements to existing infrastructure and security; installation of parking; sidewalks; utilities to include sewer, water, and electrical to meet code requirements. And possible construction of an additional classroom. LOCATION OF PROJECT: 500 E. Bland St, Roswell, NM. ESTIMATED COST OF PROJECT: $ 450,000.00

PROJECT SUMMARY: Installation of infrastructure in include sewer, water, electrical; sidewalks, two new parking lots; perimeter security fencing; interior “sidewalk” trails between all classroom structures, trails to be used as dual purpose including tricycle exercise; upgrade safety zones around existing outdoor playground equipment; completion of final stages of landscaping and security lighting for entire facility. FINDING OF NO SIGNIFICANT IMPACT An environmental review of the project has been made by the Grantee and is available for public examination and copying at the office noted above. Based on this review, the Grantee has determined that a request for release of project funds will not significantly affect the quality of the human environment and hence, an environmental impact statement will not be undertaken under the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (PL 91-910). The reasons for the decision not to prepare an environmental impact statement are as follows: The project will not adversely affect the environment and any construction related nuisances will cease upon the completion of the project. Public Comment on Finding

All interested agencies, groups or persons disagreeing with these decisions are invited to submit written comments, for consideration by the Grantee, by December 2, 2010. Comments must clearly specify which decision they object to – “The Finding of No Significant Impact” or the “Request for Release of Funds”. All comments so received will be considered by the Grantee prior to its taking any administrative action or requesting release of funds on the date listed immediately above. RELEASE OF GRANT FUNDS

The Grantee will undertake the project described above with Block Grant funds from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), under Title I of the Housing and Community Development Act of 1974. The grantee is certifying to HUD that the City of Roswell and Mayor Del Jurney, in his official capacity, consent to accept the jurisdiction of the federal courts if an action is brought to enforce responsibilities in relation to environmental reviews, decision-making and action, and that these responsibilities have been satisfied. The legal effect of the certification is that upon its approval, the Grantee may use the Block Grant funds, and HUD will have satisfied its responsibilities listed in 24 CFR Part 58. HUD will accept an objection to its approval of the release of funds and acceptance of the certification only if it is on one of the following bases: (a) that the certification was not in fact executed by the Chief Executive Officer or other officer of the Grantee (b) that the environmental review record for the project indicated omission of a required decision finding, or step applicable to the project in the environmental review process, or (c) another federal agency has submitted written comments pursuant to Section 309 of the Clear Air Act or Section 102(c) of NEPA. Objections must be prepared and submitted in accordance with the required procedure (24 CFR Part 58), and may be addressed to HUD or LGD/DFA, Room 201 Bataan Memorial Bldg., Santa Fe, NM 87501. Objections to the release of funds on bases other than those stated above will not be considered by HUD or LGD/DFA. No objection received after 15 days from the date of request for funds listed above will be considered by HUD or LGD/DFA.

Harold "Hugo" Killgo has specialized in brake and front-end work for fifty years. Killgo’s Brake and Alinement, 1508 W. 2nd St., is the place to go for brake and front-end work on a new vehicle or on a classic - like this 1968 Impala. Phone 623-7009 for expert service.

See Killgo’s for expert brake work, ‘alinements’ and now, parts

Did you ever hear of a “one-man band?” Well, Harold “Hugo” Killgo, owner of Killgo’s Brake and Alinement, 1508 West Second Street, is a oneman front-end and brake specialist. Harold has been handling brake and front-end work for fifty years, since 1960, and can fix any domestic or imported car or truck, including 4-wheel drive vehicles. "Alinement” You may have noticed that Harold spells “alinement” without the “g”. (Both spellings are correct, according to Webster’s New Twentieth Century Dictionary, Unabridged.) Harold says, “You can get an alinement with a ’g’ anywhere, but you have to come here to get it done right!” Harold’s dad, D.P. spelled it without the “g” also. D.P. Killgo, who passed away a few years ago in Texas, ran Roswell Brake and Alinement for years, and is perhaps best remembered for the big fake bear in the back of his El Camino pickup dur-

ing that time. (The bear now resides atop a building on North Main Street.) Harold handles all types of front-end work, including shocks, struts, tierods, ball joints, upper and lower control arm bushings, packing wheel bearings and alinement (or alignment, if you prefer.) If you’ve ever run into or over a curb, you have probably knocked your front-end out of alinement. You will know it when you take your hands off the steering wheel and the vehicle goes to one side or the other on a flat road; the vehicle pulls to one side when you apply the brakes; or if your tires squeal, even in easy turns. Any of these three conditions indicate you may need an alinement. “A car is designed to go straight. When it’s out of alinement, it is pulling against an unnatural weight, so there is more wear on the tires, and you will end up needing frontend parts sooner than normal,” Harold says. Checking and keeping your vehicle in alinement

will save you money and lower the possibility of having problems while you are out on the road. Everyone drives differently, so there is no set schedule for having a vehicle realined, like there is for having the oil changed. “Some drivers will knock a car out of alinement ten minutes after they buy it, while others can go for years without any trouble,” Harold jokes. So, when you are driving and you hit a slick spot and bounce off the curb, your alinement may be knocked out of adjustment. It is a good idea to have it checked after a mishap, before you ruin a set of tires or wear out your front-end. If you hit a pot hole, you should go in and have Hugo 'aline' it for you. If your vehicle vibrates at high speed the tires may need to be balanced. Harold can handle that, too. Brake work Harold can fix any brake problem you might encounter. Whether you only require brake shoes

or pads, or need the rotors or drums turned, Harold Killgo is the man to see. If your brakes squeak or make grinding noises when you step on the pedal, that is usually a good indication that you are experiencing brake problems. But, at times, a noise in the front-end may not be the brakes, but may indicate that Harold needs to pack your wheel bearings. Either way, Harold can, and will, figure out what the problem is - and he will fix it. Harold recently bought some old equipment, and now can reline oddball brake shoes. So, if you have an old vehicle, and have had trouble finding linings for it, he might be able to fix you up. Expert service Harold knows his business, and he “won’t fix what ain’t broke.” It’s hard to find a mechanic you can trust these days, but Harold depends mainly on repeat business, customer loyalty and word-of-mouth recommendations, so he emphasizes quality and

satisfaction. Harold Killgo specializes in what he does: brakes and front-end work, he doesn’t do oil changes, tune-ups or mufflers. When you have your car or truck serviced at Killgo’s Brake and Alinement, you can rest assured that the boss is doing the work personally. That’s because Harold works alone in his big metal garage. “At least I don’t have to worry about the help showing up,” he laughs. Harold insists on using only the best parts, getting them locally for faster service. That, and his experience, assures you of the finest quality work on your vehicle. Harold will tell you in advance how much your repair will cost. “I’m like everybody else; I don’t like surprises,” he says. Killgo’s prices are competitive, especially for brake jobs. “People call around, then they come here,” he said. Harold realizes you depend on your vehicle

and he will do whatever is required to ‘get you back on the road.’ No matter how busy he is, he will try to fit you in. If you are looking for a mechanic who knows what he is doing when it comes to brake or front-end repairs, call 623-7009, or stop by Killgo’s Brake and Alinement at 1508 West Second Street. Harold is open from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.

“You’ll feel the difference when you drive.” Alignment Supply

Harold has recently started carrying "Everything for the wheel alignment shop." Killgo's carries both Ingalls Performance Suspension Components and Specialty Products Company suspension components.

Fire in Shanghai high-rise apartment kills 53

SHANGHAI (AP) — The death toll in a massive fire that gutted a high-rise apartment building under renovation in Shanghai rose to 53 Tuesday, with more than 70 others hospitalized. The official Xinhua news agency cited a witness saying the fire began when building materials caught alight. The blaze spread to scaffolding and then to the 28-story apartment block itself, which houses a number of retired teachers, it said. The gover nment said more than 100 fire trucks were called to battle the blaze, which was largely put out about four hours later. Firefighters could be seen taking bodies from the building, while survivors were rushed away in ambulances. Other survivors were housed overnight in a gym of a nearby retirement home. Xinhua said Tuesday that the death toll had risen to 53. It said more than 70 others had been rushed to hospitals. There were sad scenes at hospitals as relatives searched for their loved

Keith Gardner, R-Roswell, will serve a second term as House minority whip. “I am again honored and humbled to lead the caucus for another two years,” Taylor said in a news release. Gardner, who was not challenged for minority whip, says that despite GOP leadership being challenged by Rep. Larry Larrañaga, R-Albuquerque, people should not “read too much into” it, saying, “At the end of the day, we all remain unified.” As excited as he is to continue his role as minority whip, Gardner says his attention is now on House Democrats, who will meet for caucus this weekend and could vote to replace its leadership. “I know there’s some

ones. At Jing’an hospital, the father of Wang Yinxing, a 30-year-old woman who lived on the 22nd floor of the building, searched a list of survivors at the hospital but could not find his daughter’s name. “She called her husband and said: ‘It’s on fire! I have escaped from the 22nd floor to the 24th floor,’ but then the phone got cut off,” the father, Wang Zhiliang, 65, said with tears in his eyes. “That was the last we heard from her.” Some residents escaped by climbing down scaffolding that had been put up for the renovations. A resident identified as Mr. Zhou told Hong Kong broadcaster Phoenix TV that he and his wife were napping in their 23rd floor apartment when they smelled smoke. He said they climbed down the scaf folding four stories before being rescued by firefighters. An unidentified woman told Shanghai television her only option was to climb down the scaffolding. “If I jumped I would die, if I stayed (in the building) I would die,” she said.

nine Shanghai hospitals, and a doctor at Jing’an Central Hospital surnamed Zhang said more than 20 seriously hurt people had been admitted for treatment. Most of the survivors

had suffered asphyxia from the smoke fumes, another doctor said. Shanghai state television showed survivors at another hospital in the city, covered in thick blankets as

they emerged from a highpressure oxygen chamber. The state-run news website Eastday.com cited a construction worker surnamed Qian who escaped from the 28th story as saying crews were installing energy-saving insulation when the fire occurred. Xinhua quoted local residents as saying the building was built in the 1990s and housed mainly teachers from several schools in Jing’an District, many of them retirees. Shanghai, a city of 20 million and venue of the recently concluded World Expo, has seen a construction frenzy in recent years, ranging from high-rises that dot its skyline to new subway lines, highways and airport upgrades. But unsafe building work remains a chronic problem in China. Last year, a nearly finished 13-story apartment building in Shanghai collapsed, killing one worker. Investigations showed that excavated dirt piled next to the building may have caused the collapse.

injured, Radio Metropole reported. There have been no reports of injuries to U.N. personnel or other foreigners. “We remain very concerned about the volatile situation in Cap-Haitien,” U.N. mission spokesman Vincenzo Pugliese said. He blamed political actors for stoking the unrest. “It looks like the demonstration began in three or four parts in the city in a simultaneous way that means it was planned ahead or organized,” he said. Radio Kiskeya reported an anti-U.N. protest in the central town of Hinche. The station reported six Nepalese peacekeepers were injured by rocks, but the U.N. mission said it had no reports of injuries to its personnel on Monday. A small protest was also reported in the northwester n city of Gonaives, about halfway between Cap-Haitien and Port-auPrince. U.N. police said it ended peacefully on Monday afternoon. The protest comes as Haiti approaches national elections on Nov. 28. The cholera backlash is rooted both in fear of a disease previously unknown to Haiti and internationally shared suspicion that the U.N. base could have been a source of the infection. A case of cholera had never before been documented in Haiti before it broke out about three weeks ago.

Colleagues deny Rangel’s plea for delay in trial Roswell Daily Record

WASHINGTON (AP) — Rep. Charles Rangel of New York walked out of his ethics trial Monday after pleading in vain for a postponement, saying his lawyers abandoned him because he ran out of money after paying them some $2 million. The proceeding went on without him. With Rangel gone, House ethics committee chief counsel Blake Chisam pushed for a decision on the 13 counts of fundraising and financial conduct that allegedly violated House rules Rangel, a 20-term congressman representing New York’s famed Harlem neighborhood, once had great influence as chairman of the tax-writing Ways and Means Committee. He has raised millions for other Democrats, but told the ethics panel he had no more money to pay his attorney. The 80-year -old Rangel said the trial would cost another $1 million in attorney’s fees. Rangel sought a delay so he can establish a legal defense fund, but the panel basically decided the 2 1/2-year-old case has gone on long enough — and Congress has little time left in the lame duck session that commenced Monday. Rangel’s former lawyer, Leslie Berger Kiernan, did not immediately respond. Chisam, assuming the role of prosecutor at the rare public airing of in-House issues, played a video of a Rangel speech on the House floor in August. Rangel acknowledged in that presentation that he’d used House stationery to raise money for a college center named after him, and that he’d been tardy in filing taxes and financial disclosure statements. But he said he never intended to break any rules. Chisam told an ethics panel of four Republicans and four Democrats that “there are no ... issues as to any material facts in this case. As a result the case is ripe for a decision.” Chisam said “I see no evidence of corruption” by Rangel, but rather, that the congressman was “overzealous” and “sloppy in his personal finances.” Chisam said Rangel could have legally raised money for the Charles B.

Charles Rangel, D-N.Y., departs after appearing before the House Committee on Standards of Official Conduct hearing, as he faces charges of violating House ethics rules, Monday on Capitol Hill in Washington. Center at City College of New York by asking the ethics committee for permission to solicit nonprofit organizations. However, he would not have been able to use congressional letterheads or employees in the fundraising, as he is charged with doing. The counsel also said Rangel used a subsidized apartment in New York City as a campaign office when the lease required that it be for residential use only. “At the same time, the landlord was evicting other tenants at an increased rate” for failing to follow the same lease terms, Chisam said. Several members of the committee angrily criticized Rangel’s lawyers for leaving the case just weeks before the hearing. Vermont Democratic Rep. Peter Welch said that no law firm should be “taking the money...and kicking their client by the side of the road.” Chisam, then read aloud the

13 charges of alleged financial and fundraising wrongdoing that have been brought against Rangel. The panel’s chairwoman, Rep. Zoe Lofgren, D-Calif., called a recess in late morning so members could hold a closed session on whether it was necessary to call witnesses, given Rangel’s absence. In imploring the ethics panel for a continuance, Rangel had said earlier Monday that “50 years of public service is on the line.” He said he had run out of money to pay his previous attorney, and insisted he wouldn’t attend any further hearings without legal representation. He said his lawyers had indicated to him that it could cost another $1 million to defend him at the ethics proceeding. Rangel stands accused of 13 counts of financial and fundraising misconduct that violated House rules.

The panel was sitting as a jury in a House committee room for a proceeding that was open to the public. It was only the second time this type of hearing was held under a revamped system of in-house ethics policing adopted by lawmakers two decades ago. If the panel finds that Rangel broke the rules, the House ethics committee could recommend that the House vote to condemn his conduct. “My family has caught hell” in the investigation that has lasted 2 1/2 years, Rangel said. The ethics committee chairman, Zoe Lofgren, D-Calif., had told Rangel that the panel might not have time to judge his conduct before this Congress adjourns. A postelection lame duck session began Monday. Rangel said that his fate should not depend on the congressional calendar, but on fairness. “I am being denied the right to have a lawyer right now, because I don’t have the opportunity to have a legal defense fund set up,” he said. “I truly believe I am not being treated fairly,” Rangel said. The ethics investigation goes back to at least July 2008. Only former Rep. James Traficant, D-Ohio, who was expelled from the House after a criminal conviction, has faced a similar trial since current House ethics procedures were adopted two decades ago. Key charges portray Rangel as a veteran congressman who thought he could ignore rules on disclosing his assets, and improperly used official resources to raise money for a college center that was a monument to his career. But an allegation that caught the public’s eye was his failure to declare rental income to the IRS from a resort unit he owned in the Dominican Republic. The case has generated its share of political game-playing. Republicans on the House ethics committee demanded that the proceeding be held before the election, when the trial of the House’s fourth-most-senior member could have embarrassed Democrats. Lofgren rejected the request.

Social Security judges are now facing more violent threats

WASHINGTON (AP) — Judges who hear Social Security disability cases are facing a growing number of violent threats from claimants angry over being denied benefits or frustrated at lengthy delays in processing claims. There were at least 80 threats to kill or harm administrative law judges or staff over the past year — an 18 percent increase over the previous reporting period, according to data collected by the Social Security Administration. The data was released to

the Association of Administrative Law Judges and made available to The Associated Press. One claimant in Albuquerque called his congressman’s office to say he was going to “take his guns and shoot employees” in the Social Security hearing office. In Eugene, Ore., a man who was denied benefits said he is “ready to join the Taliban and hurt some people.” Another claimant denied benefits told a judge in Greenville, S.C., that he was a sniper in the military and “would go take care of

the problem.” “I’m not sure the number is as significant as the kind of threats being made,” said Randall Frye, a judge based in Charlotte, N.C., and the president of the judges’ union. “There seem to be more threats of serious bodily harm, not only to the judge but to the judge’s family.” Fifty of the incidents came between March and August, including that of a Pittsburgh claimant who threatened to kill herself outside the hearing office or fly a plane into the building

like a disgruntled tax protester did earlier this year at the Internal Revenue Service building in Austin, Texas. A Senate subcommittee heard testimony on Monday at a field hearing in Akron, Ohio, about the rising number of threats, as well as the status of the massive backlog in applications for disability benefits, which are available to people who can’t work because of medical problems. Nearly 2 million people are waiting to find out if they qualify for benefits,

with many having to wait more than two years to see their first payment. Lawmakers told Social Security Commissioner Michael J. Astrue that efforts to trim the backlog haven’t done enough to halt personal ordeals for disabled people awaiting government help. For people in need and awaiting claims, “Your heart goes out to them,” Sen. George Voinovich, R-Ohio, said at the hearing. Astrue said the agency is making progress in cutting waits for decisions on

claims, but a 2013 goal of resolving claims within nine months could be jeopardized by rising claims amid the recession and an aging population. Judges say some claimants become desperate after years of fighting for money to help make ends meet. “To many of them, we’re their last best hope for getting relief in the form of income and medical benefits,” said Judge Mark Brown, a vice president of the judge’s union and an administrative law judge hearing cases in St. Louis. While no judges were harmed this year, there have been past incidents: A judge in Los Angeles was hit over the head with a chair during a hearing and a judge in Newburgh, N.Y., was punched by a claimant when he showed up for work. In January, a gunman possibly upset about a reduction in his Social Security benefits killed a security guard during a furious gunbattle at a Nevada federal courthouse. About 1,400 administrative law judges handle appeals of Social Security disability claims at about 150 offices across the country. Many are in leased office space rather than government buildings. Brown said the agency provides a single private security guard for each office building that houses judges. Frye said he has sought more security and a review of the policy that keeps guards out of hearing rooms. He said Astrue has promised to look into it. Social Security Administration spokeswoman Trish Nicasio said the agency continually evaluates the level and effectiveness of office security and makes changes as needed. “We are taking appropriate steps to protect our employees and visitors while still providing the level of face-to-face service the public expects and deserves,” Nicasio said. Visitors and their belongings are screened before entering hearing offices and hearings room, she said, and reception desks are equipped with duress alarms to notify the guard immediately of any disturbance.

LANDOVER, Md. (AP) — Michael Vick, not Donovan McNabb, played like a $78 million quarterback, accounting for six touchdowns all by himself. And his Philadelphia Eagles marched down the field in one big chunk after another, doing enough times to put new entries in the various record books. On a day the Washington Redskins hoped to celebrate McNabb’s new contract and set aside the swirl of distractions from his benching two weeks earlier, Vick and the Eagles stormed the party and thoroughly embarrassed their NFC East rivals 59-28 Monday night. The Eagles scored on an 88-yard pass from Vick to DeSean Jackson on the first play from scrimmage, led 35-0 after the first play of the second quarter and barely let up. Vick completed his first 10 passes and finished 20 for 28 for 333 yards with four touchdowns. He also ran eight times for 80 yards and two scores, moving past Steve Young and into second place in NFL history for yards rushing by a quarterback. The Eagles set team records for total yards in a game (592), points in a half (45) and had the biggest lead after the first quarter for any NFL road team (28-0) since at least 1950. Vick became the first player in NFL history with at least 300 yards passing, 50 yards rushing, four passing touchdowns and two rushing touchdowns in a game. More practically, the win moved Philadelphia (6-3) into a first-place tie with the New York Giants in the division, with both teams two games ahead of the Redskins (4-5).

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — Standing in front of the Dallas Cowboys the night before his coaching debut, Jason Garrett talked about pride and playing in the moment. “He said, ‘Let’s not look back and let’s not look forward,”’ tight end Jason Witten recalled. “‘Let’s be in the now. Let’s build on the good things we are doing and eliminate the bad.”’ Twenty-four hours later, a revitalized group of Cowboys abandoned their errorprone ways that led to the firing of coach Wade Phillips. They returned to playing like one of the NFC’s top teams in a 33-20 win over the New York Giants in a game delayed twice by short power outages Sunday at New Meadowlands Stadium. “The key today was we made the plays when we had to make the plays as opposed to not making the plays the first eight weeks of the season,” linebacker Keith Brooking said. “We stuck together. We fought and we did everything in our power to get the win today. This was a tough

After two games at the Cochise Classic, NMMI coach Shaun Schooley said his team lacked the pr oper mindset on the defensive end of the floor. With just a day of f between games, the Broncos (6-3) came out with the defensive fire Schooley wanted to see, holding the University of the Southwest JV team to 22 points on 25 percent shooting, en route to a 92-67 victory on Monday. “You know we had a goal in the first half to hold them to 25 points and we did that,” Schooley said. NMMI started the game on a 13-3 run in the first four minutes, thanks in large part to dominating the paint. A.J. Peralta came off the bench to provide an inside presence and he scored two quick baskets to increase the Broncos’ lead to 17-6.

NMMI’s guards had no problem getting into the lane all game and that enabled open looks for teammates. Overall, 11 Br oncos scored at least five points, led by Peralta’s 14. The incr eased inside presence is exactly what Schooley wanted to see. “We tried to get everybody involved,” he said. “Also, offensively we have got to do more inside play. We have got to start throwing it in more, which we did tonight. Of course, they weren’t that tall. “If we can score a little bit more on the inside it will make our outside shooting that much more easy for our guar ds to convert. You have just got to work it inside. We have guys that can score on the inside and guys that can score on the outside. We haven’t had that luxury in a long time here. “We just have to have the confidence to throw it in and the confidence to

throw it back out. Basically, we have just got to trust each other on the floor and once we do that a little bit, we will be fine. We have to do that defensively.” In the second half, the Broncos were a bit sloppy, as they had 13 turnovers and suf fer ed lapses in their transition defense. Despite the gaf fes, NMMI was never truly threatened in the second half as they continued to get to the rim almost at will. While Schooley was pleased with the defensive ef fort, he said there are still areas his team needs to work on.

DENVER (AP) — A dozen years after retiring, John Elway still can spark the Denver Broncos. Energized by the Hall of Fame quarterback’s pep talk last week, the Broncos rolled to a 49-29 win over the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday in their highestscoring game in five years. Relying on a steady rushing attack, a solid defense and a quick early lead, the Broncos (3-6) snapped a four-game skid and pulled within two games of the Chiefs (5-4) and Raiders in the middling AFC West.

They may have just won back some disgruntled fans, too. When the Broncos last took the field at home, they were humiliated 59-14 by Oakland. “We owed this to them,” said linebacker Mario Haggan, who had a career-high three sacks. “Hopefully, we continue to play that way the rest of the season.” Maybe No. 7 is available for more inspirational speeches. Elway’s words at practice certainly hit home. “Sometimes, it takes someone coming in to say

four for 44 yards or more in a game that featured two third-quarter power outages that delayed play for 11 minutes. Kitna, who was 13 of 22 with one interception, had TD passes of 13 yards to rookie Dez Bryant, 71 to

halfback Felix Jones and 24 to Miles Austin. Rookie cornerback Bryan McCann scored on a teamrecord 101-yard interception return and the Cowboys defense forced three turnovers despite allowing 480 yards of offense to the Giants. “There was more a sense of urgency today,” said McCann, whose interception was set up when Hakeem Nicks broke off a slant route and made Eli Manning look bad. “We had a good coach who got put out the door. Coach Garrett came in, added a little more spark and intensity in practice and obviously it showed up on game day.” Garrett was impressed with his team’s mental toughness after a week of adversity. “I thought the intensity was there in all three areas,” Garrett said. “Guys were fighting for each other. We were challenged in all areas and I think we stepped up.” Cowboys owner Jerry

AVONDALE, Ariz. (AP) — Nobody would have been surprised if Denny Hamlin envisioned hoisting the Sprint Cup trophy as he led lap after lap around Phoenix International Raceway. He was dominating Sunday’s race, headed to at least a top-three finish and one more monstrous step toward ending Jimmie Johnson’s four-year run as NASCAR champion. Then it all backfired. Poor fuel mileage forced Hamlin to make a late pit stop that cost him his comfortable lead in the standings. Instead of taking a lead of almost 60 points over Johnson into next week’s season finale, Hamlin finds himself clinging to a 15-point margin. “It’s tough to not be happy having the point lead going into the last race. But we were sitting pretty,” Hamlin said. Was he ever. Hamlin led a race-high 190 laps, while Johnson and third-place driver Kevin Harvick couldn’t get near him on the track. And when Harvick was penalized for a loose

lug nut on a late stop, nothing seemed to be in the way of Hamlin’s first career NASCAR title. Then cautions didn’t fall as they should have, and race winner Carl Edwards was closing fast on his bumper, forcing Hamlin to burn fuel as he tried to preserve the win. His Joe Gibbs Racing crew knew he was going to be at least a dozen laps short of making it to the finish on his last tank of gas, and crew chief Mike Ford called in the No. 11 Toyota for gas with 14 laps remaining. Hamlin was in second place when he headed to pit road, with a nearly 60-point lead over Johnson. The pit stop dropped him to 19th, and he had to drive like a madman through the field trying to salvage his day. His crew watched and waited for Johnson to make his fuel stop — Harvick’s penalty had given him the opportunity to make an extra stop for gas — but Johnson never ducked onto pit road.

DENVER (AP) — A dozen years after retiring, John Elway still can spark the Denver Broncos. Energized by the Hall of Fame quarterback’s pep talk last week, the Broncos rolled to a 4929 win over the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday in their highest-scoring game in five years. Relying on a steady rushing attack, a solid defense and a quick early lead, the Broncos (3-6) snapped a four game skid and pulled within two games of the Chiefs (5-4) and Raiders in the middling AFC West. They may have just won back some disgruntled fans, too.

but especially a guy with John’s stature and what he means to this organization and to us, for him to say it, I think it resonated with a lot of guys.” Possibly with Knowshon Moreno and Kyle Orton, both of whom had career days for Denver. Moreno went over the 100-yard rushing mark for the first time in his 1 1/2 seasons in the NFL, gaining 106 yards, while Orton tossed four TD passes for the first time as a pro. “It was a good day,” said Moreno, who also added a touchdown catch. “We were just clicking.” Especially early when the Broncos raced out to a 35-0 lead behind three touchdown passes from Orton, a 1-yard run by rookie Tim Tebow and a 75-yard fumble return for a TD by linebacker Jason Hunter. The only time the Broncos scored more than 49 points was in 1963, when they put up 50 on the Chargers. They also had 49 against Philadelphia in 2005. This from a team that has struggled early in games all season, scoring just seven points in the opening quarter of their first eight games combined. “We started fast, which is something we talked about a lot,” coach Josh McDaniels said. “That was a really good thing for our football team

After two games at the Cochise Classic, NMMI coach Shaun Schooley said his team lacked the proper mindset on the defensive end of the floor. With just a day off between games, the Broncos (6-3) came out with the defensive fire Schooley wanted to see, holding the University of the Southwest JV team to 22 points on 25 percent shooting, en route to a 92-67 victory on Monday. “You know we had a goal in the first half to hold them to 25 points and we did that,” Schooley said. NMMI started the game on a 13-3 run in the first four minutes, thanks in large part to dominating the paint. A.J. Peralta came off the bench to provide an inside presence and he scored two quick baskets to increase the Broncos’ lead to 17-6. NMMI’s guards had no pr oblem getting into the lane all game and that enabled open looks for teammates. 15. Missouri . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .8-2 16. Virginia Tech . . . . . . . . . . .8-2 17.

AVONDALE, Ariz. (AP) — Nobody would have been surprised if Denny Hamlin envisioned hoisting the Sprint Cup trophy as he led lap after lap around Phoenix International Raceway. He was dominating Sunday’s race, headed to at least a top-three finish and one more monstrous step toward ending Jimmie Johnson’s four -year run as NASCAR champion. Then it all backfired. Poor fuel mileage forced Hamlin to make a late pit stop that cost him his comfortable lead in the standings. Instead of taking a lead of almost 60 points over Johnson into next week’s season finale, Hamlin finds himself clinging to a 15-point margin. “It’s tough to not be happy having the point lead going into the last race. But we were sitting pretty,” Hamlin said. Was he ever. Hamlin led a racehigh 190 laps, while Johnson and thirdplace driver Kevin Harvick couldn’t get near him on the track. And when Harvick was penalized for a loose lug nut on a late stop, nothing seemed to be

NATION/OBITUARIES

Scans, pat-downs upset air passengers Scientists propose one-way trips to colonize Mars WASHINGTON (AP) — Nearly a week before the Thanksgiving travel crush, federal air security officials were struggling to reassure rising numbers of fliers and airline workers outraged by new antiterrorism screening procedures they consider invasive and harmful. Across the country, passengers simmered over being forced to choose scans by full-body image detectors or probing patdowns. Top federal security officials said Monday that the procedures were safe and necessary sacrifices to ward of f terror attacks. “It’s all about security,” Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano said. “It’s all about everybody recognizing their role.” Despite officials’ insistence that they had taken care to prepare the American flying public, the flurry of criticism from private citizens to airline pilots’ groups suggested that Napolitano and other federal of ficials had been caught off guard. At the San Diego airport, a software engineer posted an Internet blog item saying he had been ejected after being threatened with a fine and lawsuit for refusing a groin check after turning down a full-body scan. The passenger, John Tyner, said he told a federal Transportation Security Administration worker, “If you touch my junk, I’m gonna have you arrested.” Tyner’s individual protest quickly became a web sensation, but questions also came from travel business groups, civil liberties activists and pilots, raising concerns both about the procedures themselves and about the possibility of delays caused by passengers reluctant to accept the new procedures. “Almost to a person, travel managers are concerned that TSA is going too far and without proper procedures and sufficient oversight,” said Kevin Mitchell, chairman of the Business Travel Coalition, an advocacy group representing corporate travel departments. “T ravel managers are hearing from their travelers about this virtually on a daily basis.” Jeffrey Price, an aviation professor at Metropolitan State College of Denver, said two trends are converging: the regular holiday security increases and the addition of body scanners and new heightened measures stemming from the recent

Airline passengers put their personal belongings in trays as they check in at Washington's Ronald Reagan National Airport, Monday. U.S. officials are defending new anti-terrorism security procedures at the nation's airports that some travelers complain are overly invasive and intimate.

attempted cargo bombings. Also, several airports are short-staffed, which will add to delays, Price said. Homeland Security and the TSA have moved forcefully to shift airport screening from familiar scanners to full-body detection machines. The new machines show the body’s contours on a computer stationed in a private room removed from the security checkpoints. A person’s face is never shown and the person’s identity is supposedly not known to the screener reviewing the computer images. Concerns about privacy and low-level radiation emitted by the machines have led some passengers to refuse screening. Under TSA rules, those who decline must submit to rigorous pat-down inspections that include checks of the inside of travelers’ thighs and buttocks. The American Civil Liberties Union has denounced the machines as a “virtual strip search.” Concer ns about both procedures are not limited to the U.S. In Germany over the weekend, organized protesters stripped off their clothes in airports to voice their opposition to full-body scans. Douglas R. Laird, a former security director for Northwest Airlines, said it’s the resistance to these measures that will cause the most delays. The new enhanced pat-downs, an alternative to body scanners, take more time — about 2 minutes com-

pared with a 30-second scan. Delays could multiply if many travelers opt for a pat-down or contest certain new procedures. Beyond the scanning process, passengers will also be subject to greater scrutiny of their luggage and personal identification and stricter enforcement of long-standing rules like the ban on carry-on liquids over 3 ounces. On Monday, top security of ficials were out in force to defend the new policies. Napolitano wrote an op-ed piece in USA Today insisting that the body scanners used at many airports were safe and any images were viewed by federal airport workers in private settings. Napolitano later said in a news conference at Ronald Reagan National Airport that she regretted the growing opposition to moves by the federal government to make flying safer. But she said the changes were necessary to deal with emerging terrorist threats such as a Nigerian man’s alleged attempt to blow up a jetliner bound from Amsterdam to Detroit last Christmas Day using hard-todetect explosives. Authorities allege that the explosives were hidden in the suspect’s underwear. There are some 300 full-body scanners now operational in 60 U.S. airports. TSA is on track to deploy approximately 500 units by the end of 2010. Officials for the Airports Council Inter national-

North America, which represents U.S. and Canadian airports, said their members haven’t complained about the scanner and pat-down policy or reported any special problems. But airports have been urging the government to engage in an aggressive public education campaign regarding the new screening, said Debby McElroy, the council’s executive vice president. “TSA is trying to address a real, credible threat, both through the advanced imaging technology and through the pat-downs,” McElroy said. “We think it’s important that they continue to address it with passengers and the media because there continues to be a significant misunderstanding about both the safety and the privacy concerns.” A spokeswoman for American Airlines issued a carefully worded statement that stopped short of welcoming the government’s security moves. “We are working with the unions and the TSA and continue to evaluate and discuss screening options,” American spokeswoman Missy Latham said. Some airline pilots have pushed back against the new rules screening them. Many pilots are already part of the Federal Flight Deck Of ficer Program, which trains pilots in the use of firearms and defensive tactics. They are permitted to carry weapons on board.

Roswell Daily Record

PULLMAN, Wash. (AP) — It’s usually cheaper to fly one way, even to Mars. Two scientists are suggesting that colonization of the red planet could happen faster and more economically if astronauts behaved like the first settlers to come to North America — not expecting to go home. “The main point is to get Mars exploration moving,” said Dirk Schulze-Makuch, a Washington State University professor who co-authored an article that seriously proposes what sounds like a preposterous idea. At least one moon-walking astronaut was not impressed. “This is premature,” Ed Mitchell of Apollo 14 wrote in an e-mail. “We aren’t ready for this yet.” Also cool to the idea was NASA. President Barack Obama has already outlined a plan to go to Mars by the mid-2030s, but he never suggested these space travelers wouldn’t come home. “We want our people back,” NASA spokesman Michael Braukus said. The article titled “To Boldly Go” appears in the latest issue of the Journal of Cosmology, which featured more than 50 articles and essays on Mars exploration. Schulze-Makuch and Paul Davies, a physicist at Arizona State University, argue that humans must begin colonizing another planet as a hedge against a catastrophe on Earth. They believe the one-way trips could start in two decades. “You would send a little bit older folks, around 60 or something like that,” Schulze-Makuch said, bringing to mind the aging heroes who saved the day in the movie “Space Cowboys.” That’s because the mission would undoubtedly reduce a person’s lifespan, from a lack of medical care and exposure to radiation. Radiation could also damage reproductive organs, so sending people of childbearing age is not a good idea, Schulze-Makuch said. Mars is a six-month flight away, and it has surface gravity, a thin atmosphere, frozen water, carbon dioxide and essential minerals. The two scientists propose the missions begin with two two-person teams, in separate ships that would serve as living quarters on the planet. More colonists and regular supply ships would follow. The technology already exists, or is within easy reach, they wrote. By not taking the extra fuel and provisions necessary for a return trip to Earth, the mission could cut costs by 80 percent. Davies and Schulze-Makuch say it’s important to realize they’re not proposing a “suicide mission.” “The astronauts would go to Mars with the intention of staying for the rest of their lives, as trailblazers of a permanent human Mars colony,” they wrote. They acknowledge the proposal is a tough sell for NASA, with its focus on safety, and suggest the private sector might be more fertile ground. “What we would need is an eccentric billionaire,” Schulze-Makuch said. “There are people who have the money to put this into reality.” Indeed, British tycoon Richard Branson, PayPal founder Elon Musk and Amazon.com Inc. CEO Jeff Bezos are among the rich who are already involved in private space ventures. Isolated humans in space have long been a staple of science fiction movies, from “Robinson Crusoe on Mars” and “2001: A Space Odyssey” to a flurry of recent movies such as “Solaris” and “Moon.” In many of the plots, lonely astronauts fall victim to computers, madness or aliens. Psychological profiling and training of the astronauts, plus constant communication with Earth, would reduce debilitating mental strains, the two scientists said. “They would, in fact, feel more connected to home than the early Antarctic explorers,” they write in their article. The mental health of humans in space has been extensively studied. Depression can set in, people become irritated with each other, and sleep can be disrupted, studies have found. The knowledge that there is no quick return to Earth would likely make that worse. Davies’ research focuses on cosmology, quantum field theory and astrobiology. He was an early proponent of the theory that life on Earth may have come from Mars in rocks ejected by asteroid and comet impacts. Schulze-Makuch is the author of two books about life on other planets. His focus is eco-hydrogeology, which includes the study of water on planets and moons of our solar system and how those could serve as a potential habitat for microbial life.

DEAR ABBY: My dear friend “Shelby” has been involved with a man for three years. “Mr. Secret Agent” is always on the go and can visit her only occasionally because of all of his international business travels. She told me he is from New Zealand and plans to return there when he retires in a few years. Something about him just didn’t feel right to me, so I did some Internet sleuthing and discovered that Shelby’s “successful businessman” was born right here in the U.S.A. He has no passport, is using an assumed name, works as a janitor, has filed bankruptcy twice and actually lives in a trailer. Shelby is overjoyed when he comes to visit her, but I am getting tired of hearing his lies. I know she’ll be hurt, but don’t you think she deserves to know the truth? I’m concerned he may extort money from her. What should I do? 2 GOOD 2 BE TRUE IN WASHINGTON STATE

Review: An implausible ‘Next Three

Roswell Daily Record

Tuesday, November 16, 2010

CHRISTY LEMIRE AP MOVIE CRITIC

The main dynamic you have to accept in “The Next Three Days” — the one that the entire story, all the drama, all the risk hinge upon — is that Russell Crowe and Elizabeth Banks actually belong together. Always strong individually, they make no sense as a couple. Chalk it up to miscasting, a lack of chemistry, whatever: It’s simply too hard to buy them as husband and wife. And that’s a problem, since it undermines our ability to become emotionally immersed in the life-threatening danger in which they find themselves. As a result, Paul Haggis’ thriller, based on the 2008 French film “Anything for Her,” ends up feeling even more implausible than it might have. A couple of thrilling chase sequences in the film’s third act and intense moments within Crowe and Banks’ performances, as well as one great scene involving Liam Neeson, unfortunately can’t salvage the whole endeavor. The latest movie from the Oscar-winning “Crash” director finds Banks’ Lara Brennan being charged and convicted of killing her boss in a Pittsburgh parking garage. Lara insists she didn’t commit the crime despite having a smudge of the victim’s blood on her trench coat, and Haggis’ script provides obscured flash-

back glimpses of that night’s events, keeping her guilt or innocence a mystery until the end. Once all of Lara’s appeals have run out and she’s on the verge of being transferred to a state penitentiary, her husband, John, hatches a scheme to break her out of the joint. John, mind you,

is a mild-mannered community college English professor who already has his hands full caring for the couple’s 6-year-old son, Luke (Ty Simpkins), alone. Somehow he finds the time to research how to make bump keys and construct intricate surveillance of the various delivery

Web series ‘Backwash’ mixes mania, celebs

NEW YORK (AP) — Like a lot of Web series fighting for eyeballs in the diffuse world of online entertainment, Crackle’s new “Backwash” hopes to entice viewers with big names usually beamed out on bigger screens. “Backwash,” a manic comedy of 13 episodes, includes cameos from Jon Hamm, Sarah Silverman, Hank Azaria, Fred Willard, John Stamos and more. Each episode is seven to nine minutes long. Celebrities been drawn to “Backwash” largely on the basis of its central talent. Joshua Malina (“The West Wing”) stars in the series, which he wrote and directed with veteran TV writer-producer Daniel Schnider. The first two episodes debuted Monday, with subsequent episodes premiering Mondays and Wednesdays on Crackle.com, Sony Pictures Entertainment Company’s video website. The series’ executive producer is Danny Leiner, who directed “Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle” and “Dude Where’s My Car?” Like those films, “Backwash” is an absurdist journey precipitated by a frivolous happening. The twitchy, nervous Jonesy (Michael Panes) and the confident, arch Val (Malina) are roommates. Val craves the free toaster of a local bank promotion, with motives somehow related to revenge on his dead father. He bundles up Jonesy, gives him a roll of “meat in a sock” and sends him packing

Apple promises ‘exciting’ iTunes update

CUPER TINO, Calif. (AP) — Apple Inc. replaced its regular home page Monday with a note pr omising an “exciting” iTunes announcement. “Tomorrow is just another day. That you’ll never forget,” the gadget maker posted online. The webpage instructs people to check back at 7 a.m. PST Tuesday to learn more. Apple would not give any further details about the nature of the announcement, but The Wall Street Journal reported that Apple has finally snagged the rights to sell Beatles albums on iTunes. Relying on unnamed sources, the report also said there was a chance Apple could change its plans at the last minute. Representatives from the Beatles’ label, EMI, and Apple Corps Ltd., which manages the band’s affairs, did not respond to messages fr om The Associated Pr ess seeking comment. EMI has acted as the distributor for the Beatles since the early 1960s, but Apple Corps has so far declined to allow the Fab Four’s music on any Internet music services, including iTunes. The situation was exacerbated by a long-running trademark dispute between Apple Inc. and Apple Corps that was finally resolved in early 2007 when the companies agreed on joint use of the apple logo and name, a deal many saw as paving the way for an agreement for online access to the songs of the group, which broke up 40 years ago. Rumors of the Beatles’ online debut have cr opped up tied to past Apple events.

with this advice: “Jonesy, you’re a winner, and winners something something something.” An over-the-top adventure follows, including an accidental bank heist and a lackadaisical getaway in an ice cream truck. Their friend Fleming (Michael Ian Black) is roped in, too. It’s all slapstick to the tilt, complete with actual slapping and mallet gags. Each episode is presented in “Masterpiece Theater” style, with a guest star introducing the episode from a plush library, contrasting the lowbrow comedy that follows. They, too, add another layer of satire. “Good evening. I’m Hank Azaria, and, yes, I lost a bet,” Azaria says. Ken Marino (“Veronica Mars,” “Reno 911!”) sits cross-legged and opens in the customary fashion of “You might recognize me from ...” But rather than just listing a credit or two, he gives a litany until he becomes obsessed with finding out how you, the viewer, might know him. These introductions are the best part of “Backwash.” Even though “Masterpiece Theater” parodies are old hat, they at least keep to a formula. The antics of Jonesy, Val and Fleming are too cartoonish and unhinged from any reality. The joke is that they can make up anything as they go (animation pops up in action sequences), a scheme that quickly tires.

buying drugs as an entry to inquire about fake passports. He walks around with a gun and wads of cash. He gets his butt severely kicked. One would think John might be dissuaded — or sleepdeprived, given all the juggling he’s doing and the dual lives he’s living. But despite Crowe’s indisputable ability to transform himself and dig deep for every character he plays, we never get a sense of whether crafting this plot weighs on John’s conscience. He’s understandably bereft and driven, given the possibility that his wife and the mother of his child will be locked up for the next 20 years, but this is ridiculous. Banks, meanwhile, is believably hardened by her time behind bars; she develops a sadness and an edge to her usually bright personality. But the most intriguing figure of all is Neeson as a grizzled excon who has literally written the book on prison breaks. The scene in which John tries to seek out his advice, without giving away his intention to spring Lara, briefly brings “The Next Three Days” to life. You’d watch a whole movie about that guy. And you’d buy it completely. “The Next Three Days,” a Lionsgate release, is rated PG-13 for violence, drug material, language, some sexuality and thematic elements. Running time: 122 minutes. Two stars out of four.
