Chinese dissident honored at Nobel ceremony

OSLO, Norway (AP) — With a large portrait of a smiling Liu Xiaobo hanging front and center, the chairman of the Norwegian Nobel Committee crossed the dais and gently placed the peace prize diploma and medal on an empty chair. Ambassadors, royalty and other dignitaries rose in a standing ovation. The man they honored wasn’t there Friday — he is serving an 11year sentence at Jinzhou Prison in northeastern China for urging sweeping changes to Beijing’s oneparty communist political system. And there was no news coverage


of it in China, where foreign TV news channels went black as the ceremony began and authorities denounced the award as a “political farce.” It was the first time in 74 years the prestigious $1.4 million Nobel Peace Prize was not handed over. Committee chairman Thorbjoern Jagland drew the first of several standing ovations from the international gathering of 1,000 guests at Oslo City Hall when he noted that neither Liu nor his closest relatives were able to attend. “This fact alone shows that the award was necessary and appropri-

ate,” he said. He brought the crowd to its feet again when he declared: “He has not done anything wrong. He must be released.” China was infuriated when the Nobel committee awarded the prize to the 54-year-old literary critic, describing it as an attack on its political and legal system. Authorities have placed Liu’s supporters, including his wife, Liu Xia, under house arrest to prevent anyone from picking up his prize. After Jagland drew another standing ovation by placing the medal and diploma on Liu’s empty

SENECA FALLS, N.Y. (AP) — For years, civic boosters have pointed out intriguing parallels that suggest Seneca Falls was the inspiration for Bedford Falls, the makebelieve New York mill town in “It’s a Wonderful Life.”

In the speech, Liu portrays the surprisingly positive and gentle nature of his correctional officer while awaiting trial, which gave him hope for the future.

Add-ons transform tax-cut bill into a ‘Christmas tree’

WASHINGTON (AP) — In the spirit of the holiday season, President Barack Obama’s tax-cut deal with Republicans is becoming a Christmas tree tinseled with gifts for lobbyists and lawmakers. But that hardly stopped the squabbling on Friday, with Bill Clinton even back at the White House pleading the president’s case. While Republicans sat back quietly, mostly pleased, Democrats and other liberals were going at each other ever so publicly. As Clinton lectured on Obama’s behalf, Vermont independent Bernie Sanders castigated the agreement for the TV cameras in the mostly empty Senate chamber. The tax deal, reached behind the scenes and still informal, now includes ethanol subsidies for rural folks, commuter tax breaks for their cousins in the cities and suburbs and wind and solar grants for the environmentalists — all aimed at winning votes, particularly from reluctant Democrats. The holiday additions are being hung on the big bill that was Congress’ main reason for spending December in Washington, long after the elections that will give Republicans new power in January. The measure will extend Bushera tax cuts, averting big tax increases for nearly all Ameri-

on automotive safety and fire prevention. “We’ve never had a wreck, fatality … we’re very cautious,” Huckabee said. Participants in today’s parade will represent commercial businesses, churches, local non-profits and youth organizations. “This is our Christmas present to the community … it’s a time where everybody puts all of their grievances aside and celebrate the holiday.”

For family members of the people incarcerated at Chaves County Detention Center, Christmas can appear bleak. Both the adult and juvenile facilities stay open all day so families can visit. Families are allowed to bring children, but there are no contact visits. “The only contact visits we allow are court ordered or inmates enrolled in the parenting classes through CASA. Since we don’t have facilities for contact family visits, they are nor mally done in the courtroom with officer supervision,” CCDC administrator Alfonso Solis explained. He admitted, “It is sad, to see these little grandmothers, so crippled that they can hardly walk, bringing the children in,” said Solis. The adult facility has regular scheduled religious services. On Christmas Day, the Catholic Ministries will provide a Mass and communion. Grace Community Church is also planning communion and baptism celebration. They will provide a snack for the inmates. The Catholic Ministries will be giving Christmas cards to the inmates to mail to their families.

Federal charges used to keep repeat offender behind bars JESSICA PALMER RECORD STAFF WRITER

Jesus Jose Rodriguez, 30, was sentenced to five years in federal prison on Tuesday. Roswell Police Department Public Information Officer Travis Holley explained that Rodriguez is a repeat offender with a long and violent history which allowed the Chaves County Metro Narcotics Task Force to file charges against him in federal court. In April 1997 Rodriguez pleaded guilty to armed robbery and was sentenced to nine years in state prison. “In September 1998, he was back on the streets and charged as a minor in possession of alcohol,” said Holley. Rodriguez was arrested the following month for contempt of court.

Within a year, Rodriguez was charged with shooting at an occupied dwelling, assault with a deadly weapon and as a felon in possession of a firearm in connection with a drive-by shooting incident. He again pled guilty and was sentenced to 18 months, even though he was on parole for armed robbery at the time, Holley said. “In 2004, only seven years after the armed-robbery charge that was supposed to have had a nineyear sentence, he was again charged with a drive-by shooting, aggravated battery with a deadly weapon and being a felon in possession of a firearm,” said Holley. Rodriguez pleaded guilty to the charges in District Court. He was sentenced to three years as an accessory to the drive-by shooting, three years for aggravated battery with a deadly weapon, and 18 months for contributing to the delinquency of a minor.

Each of these sentences carries a four year mandatory habitual offender enhancement, Holley said. In other words, the 2004 conviction should have carried a 19 and one-half year sentence. All totalled, Rodriguez has been arrested by Roswell police 16 times, seven for probation or parole violations. All arrests subsequent to original armed robbery charge occurred when he was out on parole. “The amazing thing is that the 15 charges would not have occurred if he had served his full sentence for armed robbery,” said Holley. In January, agents from the Chaves County Metro Narcotics Task Force received a tip that Rodriguez had been released and was dealing methamphetamine from a room at the Frontier Motel. The task force raided his motel room and found drug parapherna-

lia and firearm. A woman, who was staying with him at the time, was arrested for possession of drug paraphernalia. She vomited a quarter -ounce bag of methamphetamine she had swallowed while at the Chaves County Detention Center, Because agents were not able to prove the drugs belonged to Rodriguez, he was not charged with possession of a controlled substance. However, agents were able to pursue federal charges against him as a felon in possession of a firearm. At the federal level there is no early release so Rodriguez will serve the full sentence. “As is evidenced, we are forced to go after people on federal charges because the state system is too lenient,” Holley concluded.

Animal Control damaged Police were called to Roswell Animal Control, 705 E. McGaffey St., Thursday. This was the second incident report filed this week regarding the facility. On Monday, the north door on the west side of the building was damaged with a hatchet or an ax, the chain link fence was sliced through and locks cut off several cages. Damages to the new Animal Control facility were estimated then at $3,500. In the incident report filed on Thursday, it was noted that six bushes which were planted as a part of the new landscaping plan were stolen.

Federal report questions decisions in NM rescue

SANTA FE (AP) — A former state police chief pilot says there was pressure to fly rescue missions from the Public Safety Department’s top administrator, and that may have contributed to a fatal crash in which a helicopter went to save a lost hiker near Santa Fe, according to a report by federal investigators. The report by the National Transportation Safety Board also raised questions about a pilot’s decision to

fly the rescue mission and whether the pilot was overworked before starting the mission, and it disclosed he was taking prescription medication for depression. The crash occurred in June 2009 after the helicopter picked up the hiker and took off as a snow storm approached. The pilot, Sgt. Andy Tingwall, and the hiker died. One crew member survived and was found the next day.

The helicopter apparently hit something after taking off into clouds, flew for a short distance and then crashed on a ridge at about 12,000 feet. It rolled down a steep slope. The NTSB report, part of hundreds of pages of documents released on the agency’s website last week, did not reach a conclusion about the cause of the accident. A separate report on that is not expected until early next year.

Email Fredda at: your source of retirement living answers.

Harold asked- “The food at the retirement community that I am living at has progressively gotten worse over the last two years. Do you think it will improve, or should I move?”

The quality of food in a retirement community often tells a story about the management system that runs it. If the food is progressively getting worse it could be that the management is struggling to keep the right groceries to prepare great meals, or that they simply are preparing whatever is the least expensive and will serve the most people. Remember, these are your Golden Years. You are supposed to be enjoying them. If the food service where you are living is distracting from your overall happiness then maybe it is time to explore other options in retirement living. During the holiday seasons many of our fondest memories revolve around the meals we serve and eat. I sincerely wish you and all of the readers a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. May you be blessed through the years to come. Fredda

Too fat to drive to drive a truck? What’s next?

“I’m takin’ little white pills and my eyes are open wide.” Remember that? “Six Days on the Road,” composed in 1963. An anthem celebrating the great American truck driver, knight of the road, proud and free, lean and mean. The era of little white pills probably ended about the same time as the advent of random workplace drug testing. Today’s truck driver is more likely than the rest of us to be overweight and out of shape and has a good chance of suffering from sleep apnea. An argument is raging between truckers and federal regulators about whether to force overweight truck drivers to take sleep tests. Dr. David Lyman of Concentra Medical Centers spoke about this recently to the New Mexico Workers’ Compensation Association. He said truck drivers over a certain weight and neck circum-

New safety rules are always being proposed, not necessarily in response to a new safety threat, but because improving safety is some people’s job.



ference have a 94 percent likelihood of sleep apnea. (I hid the tape measure in my purse.) The U.S. Department of Transportation, Lyman says, wants to add new requirements to the mandatory screenings for overthe-road drivers, who are required to have medical clearance. The industry is resisting, he says. The tests are expensive, so one area of discussion is whether to test only overweight drivers or all of them. Nobody is in favor of truck drivers falling asleep on top of 18 wheels, just as nobody is in

favor of truckers suffering heart attacks while driving. We can agree on this. However, it is possible to hypothesize that seasoned drivers may have enough knowledge, experience and well-honed instincts to compensate for the effects of poor quality sleep. It is predicted that the U.S. will face a national shortage of an estimated 400,000 professional truck drivers by 2011 or 2012; this is according to reports from Freight T ransport Research Associates. One reason given is the disqualification of drivers for health reasons. And we could observe that

every time a new safety requirement is added to trucking or any other industry, it adds cost that as a nation we can’t necessarily afford. The cost of transportation ends up not only in your grocery bill and my grocery bill but in the price of the groceries you and I are increasingly asked to donate to help feed Americans who are out of work because the economic recovery demands that business operate more efficiently. This is a familiar argument. New safety rules are always being proposed, not necessarily in response to a new safety threat, but because improving

safety is some people’s job, and it is not their job to assess the costs or the social and economic impacts. This pattern recurs over and over. A change is made in the economy to improve efficiency and another change comes along and sops up all the savings. Sometimes the result is a net improvement in our overall well being, and sometimes it isn’t. The rules that are enacted may depend not on their merit or value but on who has the more powerful lobby. This is the economic equivalent of watching a cat chase its tail — only it’s dizzying, not cute, it’s deadly serious and it is a vital concern for the future of our nation. America needs to figure out how to be lean and mean again. In the case of truck drivers, that’s not metaphorical. © New Mexico News Services 2010

In a joint statement, the three foreign ministers “strongly condemned” North Korea’s attack and said that the North’s “provocative and belligerent behavior threatens all three countries and will be met with solidarity from all three countries.” On China’s proposal for holding urgent six-party talks, involving the U.S., China, Japan, Russia and North and South Koreas, to discuss the North’s Nov. 23 attack, the three foreign ministers agreed that the North should first demonstrate its willingness to stop provocative action. As Maehara has said, it is vital to prevent confrontation between the grouping of Japan, the U.S. and South Korea and the grouping of China, Russia and North Korea. The first three countries must make strenuous efforts to gain the cooperation of China and Russia to have them persuade the North to cease its belligerent stance.

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange

The extradition process against Julian Assange, founder of WikiLeaks, was controversial enough. Now it has become tangled with wider questions about the justifiability of WikiLeaks’ activities: there are conspiracy theories about the charges laid against him in Sweden involving two women. There is no good reason why Britain should refuse to honor a European Arrest Warrant issued by Sweden, a friendly nation whose judicial processes are beyond reproach. If there are peculiarities about the charges against Assange, who insists that his relations with the two women were consensual, then these will be highlighted by his defense lawyers in Sweden. Further, notwithstanding the suggestion that the sexual assault charges are simply part of a holding case to keep Assange safe pending a charge of espionage, there has so far been no attempt by the U.S. to extradite him there. If it were to do so, the process would be more difficult from Sweden than from here. Meanwhile, there are increasing efforts to curb WikiLeaks’ activities; already both Visa and Mastercard have refused to process payments to its websites. Amazon has refused to host the site. But whatever we may think of the merits of the WikiLeaks revelations, we must keep that issue separate from the judicial process involving Assange. There is no good reason to refuse his extradition to Sweden; from there, the saga will undoubtedly continue. Guest Editorial London Evening Standard DEAR DR.

Veterans Day event appreciated

Dear Editor: Once again the veterans program at Goddard High School was fantastic and I want to thank the students, faculty and adminstration for making it a wonderful experience. Also, kudos to the young people who prepared and served the refreshments. I happen to know Robert Fancher personally and want to congratulate him for being the driving force in starting a great Goddard tradition and for his effort in making it better each year. I believe Robert is a true patriot. Keep up the good work, Bob! When they introduced one of the last surviving spouses of a WWI veteran, it reminded me of my father who served in Europe during that time and the stories he told of his experiences there. He came home unscathed but was deeply affected by what he saw and experienced there. As the introductions continued I remembered many things which occurred to me while participating in some of those conflicts and I appreciate the stories that were told about the others. I believe it is good to be reminded because often we forget what has gone on in the past. It is a great pleasure to hear admiration and appreciation today for veterans as well as those serving in the armed forces now. I experienced a time when that was not the case. As the program proceeded I couldn’t help but look at the student body in the stands and see their enthusiastic participation. Some will enter the armed services and a few of them will make it a career as I did. I salute those who do. The rest will go into other career fields and I wish them well also. As I looked at that sea of young faces I could not help but wonder what lies ahead for them. This is a troublesome time for our country and these young

people will be heading into situations that will truly be difficult. As I thought about this I wondered, if I had the opportunity, just what I could say to all of them or what advice would be appropriate. I finally centered on one word — citizenship. So, my advice to each would be the following: First off, learn how our nation came into being and about the founding fathers that made it possible. Second, educate yourselves well on how our government works today. I say this because often I’ve had conversations with people who ar e misinfor med and, in many cases, uninformed. Last, but most importantly, at least, be a good citizen. Many things are involved in being a good citizen such as obeying our laws, paying taxes, etc. However, one of our most important duties as a citizen, but often not used, is to vote. There is more to this than just going to the poll and pulling the lever. To really make your vote count, study the issues and the candidates thoroughly and then cast your vote based on that knowledge and not some emotional or feel-good thing. You will be the ones who will be affected by future elections, so why not participate intelligently? It has been said that political illiteracy is a major problem in our country and I say to you don’t be a part of it. There may be tough times ahead but know that our country has been through many and it has always emerged from them and prospered. As I was leaving the gym I had an experience I will always remember. A pretty young lady came out of the stands and gave me a big hug. She didn’t say a word and she didn’t need to because that hug said it all. I don’t know your name but I will remember you forever and I say a big thank you! Bill Schwartz Roswell

There is also an increased risk of colon cancer; however, the vast majority (more than 90 percent) of sufferers never develop it. There are several types of treatment available. The first type is anti-inflammatory drugs, such as the Apriso (mesalamine) that your grandson is on, as well as azulfidine and corticosteroids. Immune-system suppressors are also used. Your grandson was placed on at least one of these, Humira (adalimumab). There are several others in this category. Antibiotics, which may be helpful in treating some of the complications, such as ulcers, abscesses and fistulas, may also be beneficial for those without complications, as many researchers believe that antibiotics will reduce levels of harmful bacteria within the intestine, as well as suppress its immune system. Commonly used medications include pain relievers, antidiarrheals, iron supplements, laxatives, vitamin B12 injections, calcium and vitamin D, and/or special diets, such as nutrients introduced directly into the veins, which can bypass the stomach and intestine, thus reversing malnutrition.

A night in the life of a Chaves County Sheriff’s deputy JESSICA PALMER RECORD STAFF WRITER

The evening shift for Chaves County Sheriff’s Office begins at 5 p.m. with a briefing and a safety video about a traffic stop where two officers in Arkansas were shot by “sovereign citizens.” Deputies are told to watch for a gold Nissan or Honda that has been seen casing a neighborhood north of town. The owner has “a rap sheet a mile long.” Areas are assigned. Sgt. Barry Dixon, the Record’s escort for the evening, explains that night shift has three deputies to cover 6,060 square miles. He, as supervisor, patrols the area around Roswell because he must be in a position to leave at a moment’s notice to assist his deputies. Next, deputies discuss new paperwork required by the Chaves County District Attorney’s Office. Then the deputies disperse. One goes to help a stranded motorist along Pine Lodge Road. The night patrol with Dixon starts with traf fic stops for burned out headlights, and he says that statistically the number of officers killed during traffic stops have now surpassed those killed during domestic disputes. “You never know what’s going to happen, if someone is going to pull out a gun; but usually if something is going to happen, it will usually happen in the first two to three seconds.” Dixon also discusses officers killed by traffic as they stepped out of their vehicles. “New Mexico is one of the first states to implement a law that requires motorists to change to the left-hand lane.” A call comes over the radio from Deputy Rachelle Abernathy

“Probably times are hard this year because in the past churches and volunteer groups donate things for the inmates, such as candy or care packages. One of the local churches donated a turkey for each of our employees, but this year very few groups have contacted us about doing things for the inmates or our staff,” he said. The food service provider for CCDC always prepares a special holiday meal for both facilities, with standard turkey and dressing. This year, each shift of CCDC officers bring in food for a potluck dinner. In the juvenile detention center, the children are allowed to do art projects in their units. “Each unit has received a Christmas tree, donated by the staf f, and they are allowed to decorate their own trees.

about a possible DWI. Sheriff’s deputies converge on the location. The truck is parked behind a suspected drug dealer’s house and it smells of beer. The driver is asked to step out of the vehicle. A license check reveals the driver is on a restricted license. Deputies search for contraband. The driver says he has come to drop someone of f. Inquiries at the residence reveal a bonus, the woman is a person of interest in another crime. The driver is checked. He has not been drinking. Since the truck was parked, Dixon cannot prove the man behind the wheel was actually driving. The passenger, whose license has no restrictions, is told to drive and they are allowed to leave. Dixon retreats to a discreet distance to watch the house for activity. He then describes how careful a deputy must be in making charges. “It’s frustrating. It’s my job to protect the people of Chaves County, and it’s disappointing when the justice system lets you down.” Within 15 minutes, dispatch calls for a welfare check on a woman sitting in the middle of the road. Dixon goes to a familiar street. He speaks with the woman and returns to the car, shaking his head. “It’s the first time I’ve ever seen that woman when she wasn’t covered with blood. Her husband has been arrested five times for battery, and she keeps bonding him out.” Later Dixon radios for assistance to go to a house where he believes a woman lives who has several warrants outstanding. So far, she has eluded officials. He estimates that there must be around 10,000 warrants out-

Solis and his senior staff usually visit the facilities on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day to wish the employees a merry Christmas. “At the juvenile facility this year we are allowing families to bring in one present that is approved by us to their loved one who is incarcerated, but it must be left unwrapped so that we can inspect it and make sure it is from our approved list,” said Solis. Staff donate gifts for juveniles who get no presents from their families. CCDC wants to make sure that each child in custody receives at least one present on Christmas Day. In conclusion, Solis said, “One year, a boy began to cry. He said it was the first time he’d ever had a Christmas tree or received a present.”

Smith worked in Albuquerque for about three years while developing his Roswell practice. He returned to Roswell in 1989 and has since operated his practice. “After being in practice for a long time and watching too much of the Military Channel, I thought it would be a great experience to see facial wounds that were combat related,” he said, adding that a number of maxillofacial surgery concepts were developed during wartime. With no doctor to replace him at the time, he left his practice and shipped out of Roswell in July for a month of pre-deployment training. In August, he was en route to Kandahar. “I had 20 years (of experience dealing with) facial injuries of all sorts, including gunshot wounds, motor vehicle accidents (and) bull riding accidents,” said Smith, naming just a few. Despite all his experience with handling injuries that

A man answers. Dixon returns to the car. The woman does not live there. Her daughter does. He knows the daughter and worked with her as part of his work with the Every 15 Minutes program and he is happy to discover that she has evaded her mother’s fate. “I like it when I solve a crime and protect people who have been violated by a burglarly or a rape, but when I can prevent a crime with my work with the Every 15 Minutes program, that is the best,” he said.

Lynn Chang, a Chinese-American violinist, then performed a haunting Chinese melody, “Colorful Clouds Chasing the Moon” and “Jasmine Flowers.” But ordinary viewers in China saw none of it. Both CNN and BBC TV channels went black at 8 p.m. local time for nearly an hour, exactly when the Oslo ceremony began. Security outside Liu’s Beijing apartment was heavy and several dozen journalists were herded by police to a cordoned-off area. Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Jiang Yu said the awarding of the peace prize to Liu reflected a Cold War mentality, infringed upon China’s judicial sovereignty and “does not represent the wish of the majority of the people in the world, particularly that of the developing countries.” “This political farce will in no way shake the resolve and confidence of the Chinese people to follow the path of socialism with Chinese characteristics, and the scheme by some people will get nowhere,” Jiang said in a statement issued after the Nobel ceremony started.

the ceremony as he and first lady Michelle Obama did when he won the peace prize last year. “Liu Xiaobo is far more deserving of this award than I was,” he said. China had pressured foreign diplomats to stay away from the ceremony, with 16 other countries joining their boycott, including Russia, Pakistan, Iran, Venezuela and Cuba. At least 46 of the 65 countries with embassies in Oslo accepted invitations. U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who attended with U.S. Ambassador Barry White, told The Associated Press that “Liu Xiaobo has been a hero to all of us.” About 100 Chinese dissidents in exile and some activists from Hong Kong also attended. Chinese dissident Wan Yanhai, the only one on a list of 140 activists in China invited by Liu’s wife to attend the ceremony, said the jubilation felt by many at Liu’s honor will be tinged with sadness. “He did not do any harm to the country and the people in the world. He just fulfilled his responsibility,” Wan told AP. “But he suffered a lot of pain for his speeches, journals and advocacy of rights.” After the ceremony, a torchlight parade meandered through Oslo’s dark, snowy streets and ended at the Grand Hotel where the laureate normally spends the night. Hundreds of torch-bearing demonstrators gathered near the hotel and chanted: “Democracy Now” and “Free Liu Xiaobo.”

Almost $5 billion in subsidies for corn-based ethanol and a continuing tariff to protect against ethanol imports were wrapped up and placed on the tree Thursday night for farmstate lawmakers and agribusiness lobbyists.

would likely make the average person queasy, Smith says he wasn’t completely prepared for wartime trauma. “I have seen about every kind,” he said. “So, I had the background to handle the surgery, but I did not have the background to see the horrific nature of these combat related injuries.” Compared with his Roswell practice, Smith’s work has shifted largely from facial reconstruction to stabilizing patients and facial fractures, cleaning wounds, to stopping bleeding and repairing lacerations. And if the job description doesn’t sound too daunting, then that’s because it’s difficult for many to conjure up images of the casualties of war. “The wounds are horrific, beyond what you can imagine,” he said. “The devastating nature of the wounds ... is something you do not get used to.” The hospital — given “Role III” category that signifies the highest level of care — staffs more than 300 workers, including about a dozen surgeons trained in different areas of medicine. The hospital treats U.S. soldiers and other NATO forces, Afghani military personnel, as well as local residents. At times, Taliban fighters are even admitted through its doors for treatment. When patients are brought to the hospital in stable condition, the chances of surviving are reassuring.

0119 A woman exits the residence. 0120 The woman is told to stop moving and to put her hands up. She complies and is placed in a vehicle for her own protection. 0121 A male comes out, hands up. He is told to walk backward to the street. 0122 Officials make entry into the home to make sure no one remains inside the house. More cars arrive at the scene, one deputy and another RPD. 0126 Officers radio that “the house is clear.” With the subject in captivity, officials start to search the area surrounding the residence. The deputy returns to speak with the witnesses. Both 32 caliber and 9 mm casings are found, along with a magazine. 0145 The RPD starts to leave. The area is within the Sheriff’s Office’s jurisdiction. Thus, the investigation is sheriff deputies’ responsibility. 0200 The woman is released from the police car and taken inside the house. A deputy transports the suspect to the Chaves County Sheriff’s Office. Deputies continue to search for the gun. The reporter is told she can get back into the vehicle to wait.

a year. Other popular tax provisions aimed at increasing production of hybrid automobiles, biodiesel fuel, coal and energy-efficient household appliances would be extended through the end of 2011 under the new add-ons. The package also includes an extension of two Gulf Coast tax incentive programs enacted after Hurricane Katrina to spur economic development in Mississippi, Louisiana and Alabama. The ethanol money was added despite a growing congressional opposition to subsidizing the fuel after decades of government support. Last month, 17 Republican and Democratic senators wrote to leaders calling the tax breaks “fiscally indefensible,” since there’s already a law in place that requires ethanol be blended into gasoline.

“The compiled statistics at this hospital show that if a soldier makes it here alive, (they) have a 98 percent chance of leaving here alive,” he said. “Seventy percent of injuries are from IEDs, gunshot wounds, rocket-propelled grenade launchers, etc.” In his first three and one-half months in Afghanistan, Smith was on call 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Beginning about two weeks ago, he was joined by a Canadian facial surgeon. The two will rotate 24 hour shifts. While not working in trauma, Smith helps staff the hospital’s dental clinic. “The tours for surgeons and medical personnel are seven months because it is felt that more time is too much when the surgical exposure is so intense,” Smith said. Smith, a husband and father, says the toll on families who have loved ones overseas becomes a real issue and can’t be understated. “Everyone suffers,” he said. “The families of those deployed are the true heroes.” Smith’s tour ends around March 2011, at which point he will return to his practice at 207 N. Union Ave. “My thoughts since leaving are that it has been extremely difficult, both physically and mentally. Leaving my family and the secure way of life was tough,” he said. “I basically left my comfort zone for the complete unknown.”

Beetle Bailey

DEAR ABBY: I am a 23-year-old woman and my best friend is a guy, “Trevor.” After hearing him call me “Sweetie” and say he’s smitten with me and crazy about me, I mustered up the courage to talk with him about taking our friendship to the next level — dating. Trevor responded that his emotions are in a “blender” right now and that he doesn’t want to deal with them. He said he doesn’t want to make promises in the future he can’t keep. He also said he loves me and wants to continue to be best friends. I know in my heart that it would be beautiful if Trevor just gave us a chance. I’m ready to date him. In fact, we already act like a couple. My friends say I should give up on him, but isn’t a solid relationship built on a strong base of friendship? Should we remain best friends? MAD ABOUT HIM IN WASHINGTON STATE DEAR MAD ABOUT HIM: The answer to both your questions is yes. However, best friends are free to date others — and that seems to be what Trevor would prefer right now: no commitments. Loving someone and being IN love with someone are not the same. And while Trevor’s emotions are “in a blender,” he is clear that he wants his freedom. You have my sympathy. 

Dear Heloise: My daughter has a problem with CATS GETTING ON HER TABLE and countertops. What is a good way to get them to stay off? Thank you. Betty, via e-mail

Betty, this is a common problem because cats are natural jumpers and, of course, very curious. Don’t discourage their jumping; just provide alternatives, such as carpeted perches and “trees,” available at pet stores. Keep food put away and off the counters to prevent temptation. A “hands off” way to teach nonjumping? Put aluminum


DEAR ABBY: I have been divorced for almost a year and am the mother of two daughters. I am dating two very nice men, and I have been open and honest with both of them about not wanting a serious relationship right now. They both understand. The problem is my sister seems to feel that I need to make a commitment to one of them because if I don’t, I will be viewed as a “player.” She hasn’t spoken to me in weeks because of this “issue.” Is it wrong of me to date more than one man at a time even if I am absolutely honest with them about it? I am not ready to settle down, and I enjoy dating both of them. How do I handle this with my sister? NOT PLAYING FOR KEEPS

DEAR NOT PLAYING FOR KEEPS: The way to “handle” her is to ignore the silence and not allow her to push your buttons. By giving you the silent treatment, your sister is attempting to con-




foil on the counters, or aluminum pie plates that will startle a cat. Most importantly, don’t scold or punish a cat; it’s just doing what comes naturally, and it’ll only learn to be afraid of you.

trol your life. You are an adult, and you should not allow your sister — however well-meaning she may be — to pressure you.  DEAR ABBY: Today I witnessed two incidents of apparently well-meaning parents swatting their small children’s behinds — in public, no less. I cannot believe in these enlightened times this is still considered acceptable by otherwise intelligent people. As an elementary school teacher, I can tell which children have been subjected to physical discipline at home. They seem more fearful and angry and are more likely to hit another child because children learn through mimicry. In school or in public, a child who swats another child is liable to be lectured on bullying, sued or even arrested. Hitting someone other than your own child is called “assault” in legal terms. Any degree of swatting may seem effective because it gets the child’s attention in the moment, but in the long run, it is counterproductive. I believe all high schools should offer mandatory childrearing classes for both genders to break this harmful cycle, and to teach more effective forms of discipline. ANY CHILD’S TEACHER DEAR ANY CHILD’S TEACHER:

I agree with you 100 percent! 

Heloise  Dear Readers: Mary Bruyere of Springfield, Ill., sent a picture of her Yorkshire terrier, Corky the Yorkie, standing in his favorite chair. “He really fills my life, and talk about the exercise!” she says. To see Corky, go to and click on “Pets.” Heloise 

Dear Readers: Does your dog have bad breath? The culprit could be bits of wet food stuck in between the teeth. Your veterinarian should do a tooth and gum checkup. A tooth cleaning may be all that’s needed, and afterward? A dog toothbrush and beef-flavored toothpaste for dogs. Never use human toothpaste on dogs. Heloise 

Dear Heloise: To remove dog hair from sofas and chairs, I use one of the small dog brushes that I use to brush my dog. After I have removed the hair that I picked up from the brush, I give the brush a good cleaning with shampoo and warm water. Works wonders! Anna in Virginia

Dear Readers: A fun trip through the Heloise Files! Kathy wrote, back in 1981: “The kids were playing outside when my 5-year -old ran into the house exclaiming, ‘A baby dinosaur is in the backyard!’ Of course, we went running, only to find a very scared horned toad staring up at us. A trip through the encyclopedia (that would most likely be the Internet nowadays, folks! — Heloise) gave them the particulars of this strange little creature. “Kids are so much fun!” Heloise  Dear Heloise: Taking on a pet can be a big investment! After buying bowls, blankets and everything else, I checked out the dollar store. It had a lot of good pet items we use, and we saved a lot of money! Adam in Indianapolis

Dear Heloise: Older cats and dogs can be prone to arthritis. We started grooming our dogs when they were puppies, and continue to this day with gentle brushing. The dogs are accustomed to it and really enjoy the easy grooming, since they are now older and arthritic. S.P. in Texas

Warning Signs of Alzheimer's

As persons age, many understand there are certain things that are changing and need to be accepted. Someone who was once a night owl might now realize they work better on a full night's rest. Those who tended to spend long days at the office might realize they now need to head home at quitting time to better preserve their energy.

While both of those realizations manifest themselves physically, another more troubling problem occurs mentally. Alzheimer's disease affects as many as 5.3 million people in the United States alone, and Alzheimer's and dementia triple healthcare costs for Americans age 65 and older according to the 2009 Alzheimer's Disease Facts and Figures report from the Alzheimer's Association.

Part of the fear associated with Alzheimer's disease is the uncertainty surrounding it. While seniors might be willing to admit they can't burn the midnight oil like they once did, few can accept or are willing to admit they might be suffering some mental side effects of aging as well. Therefore, it's often up to friends and family to look for the warning signs of Alzheimer's. If you see or suspect any of the following signs in a friend or relative, consult a physician immediately.

* Disruptive changes in memory. The Alzheimer's Association notes that one of most common, particularly in its early stages, indicators of Alzheimer's is forgetting recently learned information. Other memory disruptions that could indicate Alzheimer's are forgetting important dates or events, routinely using memory aides such as notes or asking for information more than once.

standard sign of aging, such loss could also be indicative of a larger problem such as Alzheimer's, which can make it difficult for seniors to read, judge distance or distinguish between colors. In addition, someone with Alzheimer's might walk past a mirror and think someone else in the room, unaware the person in the mirror is their own reflection.

* Difficulty with conversation. Sometimes, people with Alzheimer's have trouble maintaining or joining a conversation. Some people might struggle with vocabulary, such as calling things by the wrong name, while others might stop in the middle of a conversation and not be able to continue. Most typical is when a person cannot find the right word to express a One possible indicator of Alzheimer's disease is difficulty remembering daily tasks or important given idea. events.

include difficulty with daily responsibilities such as following recipes or monthly tasks like making sure the bills get paid. Tasks that once took a few moments might now take a lot longer as well. * Difficulty performing familiar tasks. Familiar tasks often seem foreign to people with Alzheimer's. This can include driving a car, understanding a favorite game or cleaning the house. * Losing track of time or place. Seniors who begin to lose track of time, forget what season it is or where they are might be suffering from Alzheimer's. Many times, people with Alzheimer's only understand things that are happening immediately.

* Problems with vision and spatial relationships. While many people * Difficulty planning or solving are quick to assume vision loss is a problems. Some people begin to struggle with planning, both developing a plan for a given task or following another's plan. This can

* Misplacing items and being unable to retrace steps. Nearly everyone misplaces an item from time to time. However, this is more common among those with Alzheimer's, who might put their car keys in the refrigerator or routinely lose items such as the remote control or their eyeglasses. When such items are misplaced, a person who could have Alzheimer's will find it nearly impossible to retrace their steps. * Poor judgement. People with Alzheimer's can suffer from poor judgement as well. This includes making poor financial decisions or paying less attention to grooming and appearance.

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

ARIES (March 21-April 19)  Much goes on behind the scenes. Say little but observe a lot. Your ability to determine what is happening could help you gain a firmer grip on a personal matter. Tonight: Shh -- sometimes mystery is more alluring. TAURUS (April 20-May 20)  You gravitate to the right place at the right time. Meet friends halfway, or be willing to try a new spot together. What you are doing makes no difference, as long as you are together. Tonight: Say “yes” to an offer. GEMINI (May 21-June 20)  Allow greater give-and-take between you and a partner. You could be overwhelmed by everything that you hear, and for good reason. Be willing to initiate some dramatic changes within your immediate circle. Tonight: Out and about. A force to be noticed. CANCER (June 21-July 22)  Take off for the movies or a day trip. You


will discover just how much you enjoy yourself in another setting. Relax and have an important discussion with a friend or loved one. Note how this person is changing right in front of your very eyes. Tonight: Keep “escape” the theme. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)     You might want to see what is going on within a relationship. At first you might need to coax someone to talk. Allow greater depth to develop between you and those you deal with every day. Tonight: Make it cozy and romantic.

Custer’s ‘Last Flag’ sold for $2.2 million BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) — The only U.S. flag not captured or lost during George Armstrong Custer’s Last Stand at the Battle of Little Bighorn in southeastern Montana sold at auction Friday for $2.2 million. The buyer was identified by the New York auction house Sotheby’s as an American private collector. Frayed, torn, and with possible bloodstains, the flag had been valued before its sale at up to $5 million. The 7th U.S. Cavalry flag — known as a “guidon” for its swallowtailed shape — had been the property of the Detroit Institute of Arts, which paid just $54 for it in 1895. “We’ll be using the proceeds to strengthen our collection of Native American art, which has a rather nice irony to it I think,” said the Detroit museum’s director, Graham Beal. Custer and more than 200 troopers were massacred by Lakota Sioux and Northern Cheyenne warriors in the infamous 1876 battle. Of the five guidons carried by Custer’s battalion only one was immediately recovered, from beneath the body of a fallen trooper.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)  Others come forward -- some with invitations and others with what might seem like really good, fun ideas for plans. You have so many choices that you could be overwhelmed.

Visit with a child or loved one if you can. This person wants to participate and be more a part of your day. Remember how important this person is. Tonight: Pizza night. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)  Your sense of well-being emerges in a conversation. A loved one or new friend makes it no secret how he or she feels about you. Communication could take on a sarcastic tone if you are not careful. Tonight: Create the kind of evening you always wanted. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)  You might not realize how important your role is on the home front. Some situations you cannot change, but your support is most desired.

Auctioneer David Redden conducts bidding for the only U.S. flag not captured or lost during George Armstrong Custer’s Last Stand at the Battle of Little Bighorn in southeastern Montana, during an auction at Sotheby’s, in New York, Friday.

And while Custer’s reputation has risen and fallen over the years — once considered a hero, he’s regarded by some contemporary scholars as an inept leader and savage American Indian killer — the guidon has emerged as the stuff of legend. The other flags were believed captured by the victorious Indians. The recovered flag later became known as the Culbertson Guidon, after the member of the burial party who recovered it, Sgt. Ferdinand Culbertson. Made of silk, it measures 33

inches by 27 inches, and features 34 gold stars. “It’s more than just a museum object or textile. It’s a piece of Americana,” said John Doerner, Chief Historian at the Little Bighorn Battlefield National Monument in southeastern Montana. For most of the last century the flag was hidden from public view, kept in storage first at the museum and later, after a period on display in Montana, in a National Park Service facility in Harpers Ferry, W.Va., according to Beal, the museum director.

IRVING, Texas (AP) — Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones wants Tony Romo to play again this season, even if the playoffs are a long shot at best. He just wants his star quarterback to get back on the field. Romo has been sidelined since Oct. 25 when he broke his collarbone in a loss to the Giants, and would only be able to return for the team’s final two games, at Arizona on Dec. 25 and at Philadelphia on Jan. 2. Asked if Romo would be ready for the Cardinals, Jones said: “In my opinion, he will be.” “I want to do anything we can to win those games. (The decision) will be based on what gives us the best chance to win,” Jones said. “And, when he’s ready to go, he’s going to be ready. I shouldn’t be concerned about additional injury to his shoulder.” Jones added that Romo would only come back this season as the starter, not as a backup. Jon Kitna has filled in for Romo, going 3-3 in his six starts. Given the fact that the Cowboys are virtually out of the playoff hunt, the benefits of having Romo play seem minimal. But along with trying to win those games, Jones also saw a potential benefit of having Romo back before next season. “I can envision a scenario where you have a little better taste in your mouth if he came back, and he played the last two games and played lights out than if he hadn’t played,” he said.

Coyotes dominate rival Rockets Section

Roswell Daily Record


ARTESIA — Over the past two seasons, the Roswell boys basketball team relied heavily on its size, rather than its speed. Now, with a roster that includes just one player taller than 6-foot-2, Roswell coach Britt Cooper is taking the Coyotes back to the style he

prefers — uptempo. And that style was on full display inside Artesia’s Bulldog Pit on Friday night in the championship semifinals of the City of Champions Classic. Roswell (2-1) ran its way past city foe Goddard, 81-54, and into the championship game of the annual tournament. “This is how we used to

play,” Cooper said. “And with our quickness, we have to play that way. We’ve got to get up there and get that run-and-jump going and get in passing lanes. “I thought we did a good job (Thursday), but (Friday) was even better because (the guys) are selling out, getting in the lanes and moving.” Roswell used its pressure defense to force 30 Rocket turnovers which turned into 38 Coyote points. And that was the difference, according to Rocket coach Kevin Jones. “One word. Turnovers,” he said. “I think some of it is youth and some of it is that (Roswell) is making us play a speed higher than we normally play. “You’ve got to be able to make split decisions on a higher level of speed and it bothered us. We like to push the ball when we have it, but 32 minutes of up and down, up and down ... (Roswell) pretty much dictated the speed. We just didn’t make good decisions.” It didn’t take Roswell long to show the difference in speed between the two teams. The Coyotes scored the first six points of the game after winning the tip and forcing a pair of turnovers. Just 30 seconds into the game, Roswell led 6-0. “When you’ve got some

some inexperience on your team, you’re always more comfortable when you’re ahead,” Cooper said about the quick start. “I think it just kind of gives us a boost.” Eric Johnson scored on back-to-back Goddard possessions to make it 6-4 and that’s as close as Goddard got the rest of the way. A 7-0 Roswell run over the

next 2 1/2 minutes made it 13-4 and the Coyotes never looked back. Goddard thrice got to within four in the back end of the first and early in the second, but an 11-0 Roswell run made it 32-17 and effectively put the game out of reach.

For those who have played or just watched athletics, there are nights where a team just doesn’t have it. For the NMMI boys basketball team, Friday night’s game against Portales was one of those evenings. The Colts (1-5) turned the ball over on 10 of their first 12 possessions as Portales cruised to a 74-20 win at NMMI’s Cahoon Armory. From the opening tip, the Rams (3-0) put pressure on the Colt offense. Portales didn’t allow a NMMI shot over the first 2 1/2 minutes, en route to a 27-6 lead after the first quarter. Things didn’t get much better for the Colts in the second quarter, as they turned the ball over on seven of their first eight possessions and the Rams took a comfortable 4515 lead into the half. NMMI coach Pilar Carrasco said he didn’t know why things turned out the way they did against the Rams.

SANTA FE — Brandon Youngblood won the 215-pound weight class as he led Goddard to a second-place finish at the Jaguar Invitational on Friday. The Rockets finished second with 173 points. Robertson won the Invitational with 210 points. Goddard coach Jaime Martinez said that Youngblood was impressive. “He wrestled really well,” he said. “He had some tough matches, but he came up. He is a light 215, wrestling at 195. He is giving up 1015 pounds to everyone.” Youngblood went 3-0. Other top finishers for the Rockets were; Chandler Lessard (112 pounds, 4-1, fifth place), Raymond Anaya (119, 31, third), Ty Perez (125, 3-1, second), Marcus Trujillo (135, 4-1, fifth), Gaige Franco (152, 3-2, fourth), Luis Terrazas (171, 3-1, second), Bishop Whiteside (189, 3-1,

Martinez said that he was pleased with his team’s performance. “They did pretty good,” he said. “We have to work on some stuff. We will be ready to roll by Rio Hondo. In a few weeks, I think we’ll be pretty good.”

A judge declined a defense attorney’s request to reduce a $50,000 bond but did say that Cox can leave the state two times — apparently to play in Broncos road games at Arizona this weekend and at Oakland on Dec. 19. Cox waived extradition, meaning he agreed not to fight transport back to Colorado if for some reason he were arrested out of state. Cox posted bail Friday afternoon and was released from custody, according to Douglas County jail guard Chad Walker. The case filing was sealed at the request of the district attorney’s office.

Elway says he’d like to rejoin Broncos

DENVER (AP) — Hall of Famer John Elway is confirming his interest in working for the Denver Broncos again. Elway said Friday on his weekly radio show on Denver’s 87.7 The Ticket that he has spoken with team owner Pat Bowlen and chief operating officer Joe Ellis about joining the front office in an official capacity but those discussions haven’t gone far. “They’ve had plenty on their plate,” Elway said. “We’ll sit down at some point in time and have some meetings and see if everything aligns what they’d want out of me and what they’d expect out of me and what they’re looking for. There’s definitely going to be some conversations.” Elway, who has served as a business consultant this season to the team he led to back-to-back Super Bowl titles in the 1990s, indicated a role as the team’s top football executive might appeal to him. “Football is what I know the best,” Elway said. “I’m not interested in being a head coach. I’m not interested in being a general manager. I don’t have that kind of experience to be able to pick those players day in and day out and such.” Bowlen dined with Elway at his Cherry Creek restaurant Monday night just hours after the Broncos owner had fired coach Josh McDaniels with his team mired in mediocrity and enshrouded in off-the-field issues, including the Spygate II videotaping scandal. His dinner with the owner spawned speculation Elway could come back, perhaps to oversee an organizational chart that includes both a general manager and a coach. Elway said his dinner with Bowlen had been planned for a couple of weeks: “Obviously, it became a big deal, but it was really just a dinner,” he said. McDaniels’ firing caught Elway by surprise, coming one week after the owner had given his embattled coach a vote of confidence. “I thought they were going to wait until the end of the season,” Elway said. “I think the Spygate deal was the end of the road for them and they thought they had to make a move.” Elway echoed comments made by Ellis and quarterback Kyle Orton that McDaniels will resurface in another NFL city down the road and be successful. “I think in the long run, Josh is going to be a good coach. He’s already a good foot-

Shanice (Steenholdt) and Diana (Carrillo) did an excellent job in the fourth, scoring 12 of our 16 points. We established our post game in the fourth.” Steenholdt finished the game with 16 points while Carrillo chipped in with eight points. Marika Trujil-

Titans get weekend off after 6th straight loss

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — At least the Tennessee Titans get a long weekend to rest and forget about football before trying to end their six-game losing streak. The questions about coach Jeff Fisher’s job security, how he’s dealing with Vince Young and his decisions during games keep getting louder. The Titans have matched the six-game skid to open the 2009 season, and this latest slide has been a free fall to the bottom of the AFC South — after Tennessee led the division at 5-2. Their best hope now is matching their 8-8 record of 2009 with the playoffs likely missed for the fifth time ins even seasons. They finally found the end zone again Thursday night to end a 14-quarter drought without a TD. The defense even showed up against Indianapolis, but they couldn’t overcome early mistakes in a 30-28 loss. Fisher said Friday he never concerns himself with questions about his future with the team. He’s busy trying to win a game. “I’m under contract,” Fisher said. “As I’ve said numerous times, I hope to finish my career here.” Asked if he has spoken with Titans owner Bud Adams, Fisher said he would not share their discussions. “He clearly understands what happened with this season in particular the instability at the quarterback position and injuries on the defensive line,” Fisher said. “He doesn’t like it. We don’t like it. He’s not happy with it nor are we. We move on and get yourself prepared to play and try to win the next game.” Titans fans have been very loyal to Fisher, the NFL’s longest-tenured coach

For those who have played or just watched athletics, there are nights where a team just doesn’t have it. For the NMMI boys basketball team, Friday night’s game against Portales was one of those evenings. The Colts (1-5) turned the ball over on 10 of their first 12 possessions as Portales cruised to a 74-20 win at NMMI’s Cahoon Armory. From the opening tip, the Rams (3-0) put pressure on the Colt offense. Portales didn’t allow a NMMI shot over the first 2 1/2 minutes, en route to a 27-6 lead after the first quarter. Things didn’t get much better for the Colts in the second quarter, as they turned the ball over on seven of their first eight possessions and the Rams took a comfortable 4515 lead into the half. NMMI coach Pilar Carrasco said he didn’t know why things turned out the way they did against the Rams. “You know, to be honest with you, I don’t think I have the intellect to really put into words

Boys Basketball Cliff 106, Gateway Chr. 49 CLOUDCROFT — The Gateway Chrisitan boys basketball team fell to Cliff 106-49 on Friday at the Mountain Top Invitational. Mason Miller led the Warrior of fense with 13 points, while Luke Grant had seven points to go along with his 14 rebounds. Garrett Gill chipped in nine points for Gateway (0-6). Warrior coach Troy Grant said that his team played well to start the game, but Cliff just pulled away with a balanced scoring effort. “Actually, I thought we did really well in the first quarter and a half,” he said. “Then they just pulled away from us really bad after that. They are just a 10-deep team and are that good. “They run the floor well and had six guys score in

with his current team. He was the coach when Adams relocated this team to Nashville in 1997, and Fisher has been the face of the franchise over the 14 seasons in the state with his weekly radio and TV shows. A handful of fans wore bags over their heads during this latest loss, and radio stations stayed busy Friday with fans picking apart Fisher’s moves against the Colts. Fisher punted on fourth-and-1 with 4:14 left and trailing 27-21. Even Chris Johnson, who ran for 111 yards, said after the game he thought they should have gone for it. Then the Titans used the final 2 minutes, 55 seconds of the game trying to make up a nine-point deficit. On the positive side, it was the Titans’ longest scoring drive since Week 2 when they lost to Pittsburgh. Unfortunately, Rob Bironas’ extra point with no time on the clock simply helped with the spread and not the victory column. Fisher said he would do the same thing again, even with a few hours to reconsider. Then there’s the still simmering issue of Young. Receiver Kenny Britt, in his first game since straining his right hamstring on Oct. 31, wore a towel with “(nbr)10” and “VY” dur-

ARTESIA — Over the past two seasons, the Roswell boys basketball team relied heavily on its size, rather than its speed. Now, with a roster that includes just one player taller than 6foot-2, Roswell coach Britt Cooper is taking the Coyotes back to the style he prefers — uptempo. And that style was on full display inside Artesia’s Bulldog Pit on Friday night in the championship semifinals of the City of Champions Classic. Roswell (2-1) ran its way past city foe Goddard, 81-54, and into the championship game of the annual tournament. “This is how we used to play,” Cooper said. “And with our quickness, we have to play that way. We’ve got to get up there and get that run-and-jump going and get in passing lanes. “I thought we did a good job (Thursday), but (Friday) was even better because (the guys) are selling out, getting in the lanes and moving.” Roswell used its pressure defense to force 30 Rocket turnovers which turned into 38 Coyote points. And that was the dif-



lo added seven points for the Coyotes. Carpenter said that the comeback win was big for his team. “I think it was big because it was La Cueva and they are a 5A team who is very good,” he said. “To dig deep and find a way to win, it was an outstanding confidence boost. We have Clovis next and they are another 5A team. The road doesn’t get any easier. We are going to try to rest and see if we have any energy for the championship game.”


ball coach now, but he’ll be a good head coach down the line,” Elway said. “Once he gets that experience, the things he went through here in Denver, if he learns from those then he has a chance be a real good coach down the road. It’s unfortunate. You never like to see this happen to anybody or to any organization.” On Tuesday, Ellis, who is in charge of the day-to-day operations at team headquarters, said he wasn’t sure if Elway would hook up with the Broncos again. “I respect the fact that he’s interested in helping the Broncos and he has a lot of qualities that perhaps (can) lend themselves to helping the Broncos,” Ellis said. “But I don’t know if that’s going to advance at this point or not. I don’t.” The Broncos promoted running backs coach Eric Studesville as interim coach and he’ll be the first in line for an interview for the full-time gig at season’s end. Ellis said the Broncos are still mapping out their organizational chart but that the next coach will likely not have as much power over personnel decisions as McDaniels or his predecessor, Mike Shanahan, did.

ing the first half against the Colts before being told he needed to change. He is expected to be fined for a uniform violation. The Titans coach also told NFL Network before the game he thought his locker room is better without Young right now because Fisher thinks the other players disagree with how the quarterback reacted in cursing out the coach before storming out of the stadium with a season-ending injury on Nov. 21. Fisher hasn’t talked to Young since then. “I’m surprised he’s not here,” Fisher said of Young. “He was not told to not be here. But again, he’s following the guidelines of what we have to do with injured reserved players. We’ve got several players that are rehabbing outside of Nashville that are not here for games. We have a handful of players here who are on the sidelines for games.” Asked if Young is pouting, Fisher said he didn’t know because the quarterback hasn’t been at the team headquarters. Fisher repeated that Young is welcome at the building for meetings and rehabilitation. “I’m coaching this football team. My door’s open. I’m not going to go out of my way to do that,” Fisher said. “That doesn’t have any bearing on what’s going to happen tomorrow, this weekend or over the next three weekends. He’s welcome to come in if he wants to. We’re going to address it when the season is over.” Then there’s Randy Moss. The veteran receiver wasn’t thrown to once against Indianapolis and didn’t get into the game until five minutes left in the first half. Fisher defended that move, noting Britt started before his injury and both play the same position. Fisher said there’s a chance they could work both Moss and Britt — their best receivers — onto the field at the same time down the stretch. But it will be the secondyear Britt learning to slide to the other position and not Moss with time running out this season. “Randy’s done everything we’ve asked of him ... We have no issues,” Fisher said. The Titans aren’t due back until Tuesday, and Fisher hinted at lineup changes with the team going younger. They can agree on one goal with Houston visiting on Dec. 18. “It really is trying to at least get one victory,” Johnson said.

Cam Newton says he’s not disappointed in Cecil

NEW YORK (AP) — Cam Newton and the other finalists for the Heisman Trophy strolled into the room together, posed for a couple of photos with the big bronze statue, then spread out to separate tables to speak with reporters. Andrew Luck, LaMichael James and Kellen Moore looked a little lonely. The Auburn quarterback certainly draws a crowd these days. Newton sat back in a leather desk chair, frequently flashed a big grin and casually answered questions from about a dozen reporters for 14 minutes Friday, the day before he’s expected to win the Heisman. Newton said he was not disappointed in his father, even though the NCAA believes Cecil Newton tried to get Mississippi State to pay him in exchange for his son playing there. The star QB was disappointed that his dad decided not to attend the Heisman ceremony on Saturday night. “It hurts, but that’s a decision that he made,” Cam Newton said. Newton has stayed an overwhelming favorite to win the Heisman, even though he played much of the season’s final month with a scandal developing around him. The week before the Southeastern Conference championship the NCAA announced that Cecil Newton tried to pull off a play-for-pay scheme with Mississippi State, but there was no evidence that his son or Auburn knew about it. The NCAA decided Cam Newton would be allowed to play, but his father’s access to Auburn athletics would be limited. The sports governing body has left open the possibility that Cam Newton’s status could change if new evidence came to light. Cecil Newton, in a statement released Thursday by his attorney, said he would not attend the ceremony. “He’s doing it (for) the betterment of me. Whatever his decision is, I’m all for it. And I’ll stick to that,” Cam said. Cam Newton said his mother, Jackie, and two brothers will be at the ceremony and he plans to speak with his father by phone soon after it is over. “I said on numerous occasions how I feel about my father,” Newton said. “I love him with all my heart.” On the field, the 6-foot-6, 250-pound junior has been the most dominant player in college football of 2010. He leads the Southeastern Conference in rushing, leads the nation in passer rating and has accounted for 50 touchdowns while guiding the topranked Tigers (13-0) to a spot in the BCS national title game. Auburn will play No. 2 Oregon and James in Glendale, Ariz., on Jan. 10.

James has said he’d vote for Newton to win the award and Moore, the Boise State quarterback, said the same on Friday. “I don’t expect to win, no,” he said. “Certainly Cam is deserving of this.” Chris Huston, who polls a sampling of Heisman voters throughout the season and post the results at, predicts a landslide victory for Newton, though the scandal probably will keep him from breaking any records. O.J. Simpson of Southern California has the record for largest margin of victory in the Heisman voting. He beat Purdue’s Leroy Keyes by 1,750 points in 1968. Huston predicted a result more like 1998, when Ricky Williams of Texas beat Kansas State quarterback Michael Bishop by 1,563 points, the fifth-largest margin in Heisman history. If Luck, the Stanford quarterback, finishes second, it’ll mark the first time two different players from the same team were runners-up in consecutive seasons. Former Cardinal running back Toby Gerhart finished second to Alabama’s Mark Ingram last year. Many voters have said that as long as Newton was eligible to play, they would treat him like any other candidate. However, a few voters have said they would not vote for Newton because of the scandal. It was only three months ago that Reggie Bush, the 2005 Heisman winner for USC, gave back his trophy after the NCAA ruled he had broken rules by accepting cash and gifts while he was in college. Newton said that the way he’s been portrayed in the media since news broke six weeks ago of his father’s dealings with Mississippi State has bothered him at times. “I know how I feel about Cam Newton,” he said. “I think he’s a good guy. If some people break down the football barrier .. they’ll find out a lot more than they’ve been getting in the recent past. “I thank God for putting me in a lot of situations because a person can get stronger by adversity. And for me to go through that, I feel like I’m a stronger person. And God won’t put no more on you than you can bear.” He said winning the award would “be a dream come true.” “Will I cry?” he said. “I don’t know you’ll have to see tomorrow.”

If you ever feel discouraged because family, friends or coworkers refuse to accept the Gospel, you may take some comfort from the fact that even Jesus’ own brothers did not believe that he ws the Christ (John 7:5). Even though they had seen his miracles and listened to his teaching they still balked at the idea of placing faith in Jesus as the son of God. This is important to notice, because it shows that the person who hears the Gospel bears responsibility for responding in faith while the person who shares the Gospel hears responsibility for communicating with faithfulness. If we as believers ever start holding ourselves responsible for whether unbelievers accept or reject the message of Christ, we are headed for trouble! That’s not to suggest that we can be careless in our witness or ignore our credibility. Notice that Jesus’ brothers refected him in spite of his works and words. Is that true of us? Or do people dismiss our faith because our lives show little evidence that what we say we believe is true or that it makes any difference to us. ANGLICAN

But U.S. military commanders have challenged the conclusions, saying t h e y a r e ba se d o n o ut d a te d information that does not take into account progress made in the fall, says a senior U.S. official who is part of the review process.

U.S. departure from the region. In describing the Afghanistan report, military of ficials said there is a disconnect between the findings, completed in the fall, and separate battlefield assessments done by the war G en .

A milit ar y o f fici al fam iliar w it h t he r ep or t s said th e glo om i er pr ogn osis in t h e Afghanistan report became a source of friction as a preliminary version was passed among government agencies. Gen. James Cartwright, vice chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staf f, acknowledged the contrast between the Afghan estimate and Petraeus’ reports. “It’s a very disciplined, structured process, so it’s got a cutoff date that’s substantially earlier in the game than, say, the military review,” Cartwright said in a recent interview. He said officials will have to grapple with whether intelligence and battlefield reports are starting to diverge or whether the gloomier intelligence analysis is “more an artifact of time. Those are the questions that

It also shows U.S. efforts are lagging to build infrastructure and get trained security forces to areas where they are needed, the official said. And it says the war cannot be won unless Pakistan is willing to obliterate terrorist safe havens in its lawless t r ib al a r ea s b or d er i ng Afghanistan. The new report on Pakistan concludes that the Pakistani government and military “are not willing to do that,” says one U.S . of f i cia l b r i ef ed on t he analysis.

Upstate NY town pays tribute to ‘Wonderful Life’

SENECA FALLS, N.Y. (AP) — For years, civic boosters have pointed out intriguing parallels that suggest Seneca Falls was the inspiration for Bedford Falls, the makebelieve New York mill town in “It’s a Wonderful Life.” Those musings are now embodied in a museum of sorts that showcases Frank Capra’s Christmas movie classic. And who cut the ribbon at Friday’s grand opening? Zuzu, of course. Former child actress Karolyn Grimes, who played George Bailey’s daughter Zuzu in the 1946 drama, traveled to central New York to launch “The Seneca Falls It’s a Wonderful Life Museum.” Grimes called the exhibition of movie posters, photographs, magazine covers and memorabilia “a great leap of faith ... in a wonderful place that’s just so much like Bedford Falls.” At Christmastime, the village of 6,600 is adorned with white lights and wreaths strung across the main street like the snowy movie set erected near Los Angeles 64 years ago. With “exalting the worth of the individual” at the apex of his filmmaking philosophy, Capra once said, he strove “to champion man, plead his causes and protest any degradation of his dignity, spirit and divinity.” Those quotations from the late director line the walls of the one-room display at the Center for the Voices of Humanity run by Anwei and Henry Law at the former Seneca

Theater. The couple hopes the exhibition, which is open free of charge on weekdays, will in time become an officially designated museum. A big part of the film’s enduring appeal is its joyous closing scenes in which townspeople rally behind Jimmy Stewart’s character, a downcast small-town money lender who comes to his senses with help from Clarence Odbody, a guardian angel. “Maybe we like it (the film) because we know what the ending’s going to be — in our lives, we don’t,” Anwei Law said. “No matter what’s going on, George Bailey is going to be that richest man in town because he’s spent his life enriching others and just being who he is, that person who is there for everybody.” While Capra was never quoted as mentioning a visit to Seneca Falls, he could have passed through while visiting an aunt in nearby Auburn. A local barber claimed he cut Capra’s hair before the movie was released. Characters in the film mention nearby cities like Rochester and Elmira. Both the real and mythical villages have classic American main streets. And the steel truss bridge here looks remarkably like the one where George Bailey pondered his mortality. An old plaque on the bridge tells of similar real-life heroism but with a tragic twist — how Antonio Varacalli leaped into the icy Seneca River in 1917 to rescue a woman but then drowned. “Capra didn’t make Bedford Falls

In this Dec. 8, 2006, file photo, a man crosses the street in the village of Seneca Falls, N.Y. For years, civic boosters have pointed out intriguing parallels that suggest Seneca Falls was the inspiration for Bedford Falls, the make-believe mill town in “It’s a Wonderful Life.” ‘Shangri-la,”’ said Fran Caraccilo, Seneca Falls’ former village planner. “It’s not a utopia. It’s a real, working, everyday small town, and Seneca Falls is just that. We’re not a perfect community. But in a crunch, we pull together, we help each other out

and I think we kind of embody that spirit as he portrayed it in the film. “The idea that one person’s life touches so many others is, I don’t think, just a movie thing for Capra. It’s think it’s something he actually believed.”
