‘It’s his fault’
WASHINGTON (AP) — Time growing short, Congress’ leaders reported making headway Wednesday in talks to cut spending and avert a partial government shutdown that the White House warned would hit U.S. combat troops abroad and taxpayer refunds from the IRS at home. President Barack Obama checked in separately by phone with House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., then held a late-night meeting with the two men and Vice President Joe Biden at the White House. White House spokesman Jay Car ney said Obama decided to call the session after concluding not enough progress had been made during the day, and the president blamed business as usual in the nation’s capital politics for See BUDGET, Page A3

will be prevented,” Jayann Sepich said. “This truly is a joyful day.” Martinez prosecuted Katie’s killer, Gabriel Avila, and said that expanding the law was a major objective after taking office. “She continues to live in this law and will make a difference nationally,” Martinez said. “Katie told you, ‘I’m going to change the world.’ And that is why ... Katie’s law was going to the top of the list.” Also in Carlsbad, the governor signed legislation that prohibits corporal punishment in New Mexico’s schools and legislation creating a certification process for gas pilot relighting. The latter was introduced by the Legislature in the event that New Mexico experiences another crisis such as the one brought by extreme cold temperatures in February.

Gov. Susana Martinez visited the southeastern New Mexico hometown of a 22-year-old college graduate student who was brutally raped and murdered in August 2003, to sign the expansion of the law that bears the victim’s name and that provides for DNA collection in every felony arrest in the state. The parents of Katie Sepich, who was killed while attending New Mexico State University, stood over the shoulders of the governor as the executive signed into law an expansion to Kaite’s Law, in Carlsbad, Wednesday. The couple have spent years advocating in New Mexico and across the country for DNA databases for individuals arrested on felonies and violent crimes. Jayann Sepich, Katie’s mother, shared with the audience of those who
attended the event, a phone conversation she had with her daughter about two weeks before her murder. “I think I’m going to be famous,” Jayann Sepich said her daughter told her. “And then she said, ... ‘I’m going to change the world.’” And while holding back tears Wednesday, Jayann Sepich responded to her daughter, saying, “Katie, you have.” Katie’s Law was enacted in New Mexico in 2006 and allowed for DNA collection only for certain felony arrests. When the college student was murdered, traces of DNA were discovered under her fingernails. Her parents have since pushed for collecting DNA as an effective method for catching criminals. It’s something they said would have led police to arrest their daughter’s attacker three months after Katie’s murder, not more than three years. “We know more crimes

A Libyan rebel fighter monitors the skyline near Brega, Libya, Wednesday.
WASHINGTON (AP) — Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi appealed directly to President Barack Obama on Wednesday to end what Gadhafi called “an unjust war.” He also wished Obama good luck in his bid for re-election next year. “You are a man who has enough courage to annul a wrong and mistaken action,” Gadhafi wrote in a rambling, three-page letter to Obama obtained by The Associated Press on Wednesday. “I am sure that you are able to shoulder the responsibility for that.” The White House confirmed the letter, but top
officials shrugged it off. “I don’t think there is any mystery about what is expected from Mr. Gadhafi at this time,” Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said, repeating U.S. and NATO demands that Gadhafi’s forces pull back and cease attacks. She also renewed a demand that Gadhafi step down from power and leave the country. “There needs to be a ceasefire, his forces need to withdraw from the cities that they have forcibly taken at great violence and human cost,” she said. “There needs to be a deci-
sion made about his departure from power and ... his departure from Libya.” Rebels and pro-government forces waged nearly stalemate battles in Libya, while a former U.S. lawmaker made an unendorsed private trip to Tripoli to try to convince Gadhafi to step down. An Obama administration envoy continued meeting with Libyan opposition figures in the rebel-held city of Benghazi, with no decision on whether to increase U.S. help for the rebels seeking Gadhafi’s ouster.

States, Amtrak vie for $2.4B in high-speed train money
WASHINGTON (AP) — Twenty-four states including New Mexico, the District of Columbia and Amtrak are vying for $2.4 billion in federal aid that became available when Florida’s governor canceled a high-speed rail project in his state, Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood said Wednesday. The deadline for applications for the funds was Monday. The Transportation Department is review-
ing 90 applications seeking a total of $10 billion, LaHood said. “They know that highspeed rail will deliver tens of thousands of jobs, spur economic development across their communities and create additional options for their citizens as the country’s population grows,” LaHood said in a statement. Among the requests was one from Amtrak for $1.3 billion to enhance train
service in the Northeast Corridor between Boston and Washington. The proposal includes a $720 million project to replace the more than 100-year -old movable Portal Bridge over the Hackensack River in New Jersey with a new, high-level fixed bridge. Amtrak’s application also includes $188 million for preliminary engineering and environmental analysis for two new tunnels under the Hudson River into Man-
hattan and $50 million for similar work for the development of a new Penn Station South facility to accommodate more tracks and platforms in downtown New York. President Barack Obama has sought to create a national network of highspeed trains a signature project of his administration. He has said he wants to make fast trains accessible to 80 percent of Americans within 25 years.
However, Obama is receiving strong resistance from Republicans, who say the trains should be rejected unless it can be shown that they will be self-supporting. Three Republican governors elected in November have canceled high-speed train projects in their states. Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker turned down See TRAINS, Page A3

But any movement took place in secret, while the maneuvering was on public display. Deter mined to avoid political blame if a shutdown occurs, Boehner said the House would vote today on a one-week stopgap bill to keep the gover nment open while cutting $12 billion in spending and pro-

The rebels, aided by U.N.-authorized airstrikes intended to protect civilians from Gadhafi’s forces, have maintained control of much of the easter n half of Libya since early in the uprising, while Gadhafi has clung to much of the west. Gadhafi has been putting out feelers for a cease-fire, but he refuses to step down. Neither gover nment forces nor the rebels have made any serious gains in recent days and the conflict has shifted to smaller objectives on both sides, such as control of the key oil port of Brega, where fighting has flared on the outskirts. In the letter, Gadhafi implored Obama to stop the NATO-led air campaign, which he called an “unjust war against a small people of a developing country.” “To serving world peace ... Friendship between our peoples ... and for the sake of economic, and security cooperation against terror, you are in a position to keep Nato (NATO) of f the Libyan affair for good,” Gadhafi wrote in the letter. “I am sure that you are able to shoulder the

$810 million to build a Madison-to-Milwaukee high-speed line. Ohio Gov. John Kasich rejected $400 million for a project to connect Cincinnati, Cleveland and Columbus with slowermoving trains. Both the Ohio and Wisconsin projects had been approved by the governors’ Democratic predecessors. In Florida, Gov. Rick Scott canceled a project that would have connected Tampa and Orlando with high-speed trains. The administration had pledged
viding the Pentagon with enough money to stay open until the Sept. 30 end of the budget year. “I think this is the responsible thing to do for the U.S. Congress, and I would hope the Senate can pass it and the president can sign it into law,” he said. He also criticized Obama, though saying he likes the commander in chief personally. “The president isn’t leading,” Boehner said. “He didn’t lead on last year’s budget, and he’s not leading on this year’s budget.” A few hours later, Reid said Democrats kept offering concessions, and Republicans rejected them. “We meet them halfway, responsibility for that.” Neither White House press secretary Jay Carney nor State Department spokesman Mark Toner would discuss the details of the letter. Gadhafi told Obama that a democratic society could not be built through the use of missiles and aircraft. He also repeated his claim that the rebels seeking his ouster are members of the al-Qaida terrorist network. Gadhafi said his country had already been unfairly subjected to “a direct military ar med aggression” ordered by then-President Ronald Reagan, who famously called the leader the “Mad Dog of the Middle East,” in 1986, as well as earlier rounds of U.S. and international sanctions. Although he listed a litany of complaints, Gadhafi said he bears no ill will toward Obama in the letter, which was dated April 5, 2011, in Tripoli and is signed by “Mu’aumer Qaddaf fi, Leader of the Revolution.” Meanwhile, former congressman Curt Weldon, a Pennsylvania Republican who has visited Libya twice before, arrived in Tripoli on Wednesday at Gadhafi’s invitation. Weldon said he is on a private mission to urge the $2.4 billion toward the project. Scott said he was concerned that the state government would be locked into years of operating subsidies. However, a report by the state’s transportation department forecast the rail line would be profitable. The project initially had been approved by Scott’s predecessor, Republicanturned-independent Charlie Crist. Wisconsin’s Walker is now among the governors seeking a share of the money Scott turned down. Walker is asking for at least $150 million to add trains for an existing Milwaukee-
they say no. We meet them more than halfway, they still say no. We meet them all the way, they still say no. If Republicans were really worried about keeping the government running, all they would have to do is say yes.” Obama has already ruled out the weeklong measure Republicans intend to push through the House, and Senate Democrats have labeled it a non-starter. Republican officials said the details of the bill could yet change. But passage of any interim measure is designed to place the onus on the Democratic-controlled Senate to act if a shutdown is to be avoided. As for the broader talks,
it appeared progress had been made both on spending cuts demanded by Republicans and on a series of unrelated provisions they attached to legislation that was approved almost six weeks ago. A House-passed measure called for $61 billion in cuts, and until recently, the two sides had been working on a framework for $33 billion. Boehner pronounced that insufficient on Tues-
Thursday, April 7, 2011 day, and floated a $40 billion figure instead. Democrats disputed any suggestion that they had acceded to that, but some, speaking privately, conceded they were willing to go higher than $33 billion, based on the make-up of the cuts included. Apart from the spending cuts, Republicans are demanding Democrats and the White House accept at least some of the conserva-
tive policy provisions included in the earlier legislation. Democrats have already ruled out agreeing to stop funding the year-old health care overhaul or to deny Planned Parenthood all federal money. And Reid has said he will not agree to any of the curbs Republicans want to place on the Environmental Protection Agency. See related story, B3.
Libyan leader to step down. The State Department dismissed the significance of Weldon’s visit, saying he had been warned of the dangers of traveling to Libya, was not traveling on behalf of the administration and not carrying any message to Gadhafi from Washington. Rebel leaders have complained that NATO airstrikes are coming too slowly to give them a clear battlefield edge. But NATO and U.S. commanders acknowledge that pro-Gadhafi units have frustrated the air campaign by moving into civilian areas and new NATO tactics are needed. For the moment, it appears Gadhafi forces are concentrating on Misrata, 125 miles southeast of T ripoli and the only major rebel-held city outside their eastern enclave. A rebel spokesman said Misrata civilians have fled to several areas along the coast that are farthest from the fighting. Former Libyan military officers who have joined the opposition were trying to keep untrained fighters from advancing from the eastern gateway city of Ajdabiya toward Brega. But that was causing tensions within the rebel ranks. to-Chicago line. In Congress, a budget proposal by House Republicans says high-speed rail and other intercity passenger rail projects should be pursued “only if they can be established as self-supporting commercial services.” Besides New Mexico and Wisconsin, the other states that have applied for funds are California, Connecticut, Georgia, Illinois, Kansas, Massachusetts, Maryland, Maine, Michigan, Minnesota, North Carolina, Nevada, New York, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Texas, Utah, Vermont and Washington.
Restitution by poker a bust; prison instead ALBUQUERQUE(AP) — An Albuquerque man was sentenced to prison Wednesday after he asked to repay his investment scam victims through poker tournament winnings, but failed to find luck at the card table. “This was long overdue,” said J. Dee Dennis Jr., the superintendent of the New Mexico Regulation and Licensing Department. “This individual wanted to con us into believing that keeping him out of prison would help his victims get their money back. ... We’re calling his bluff. It’s about time we sent him to prison.” Samuel McMaster Jr. stayed out of prison after prosecutors agreed to a request from his attorney to delay sentencing so that he could earn money to repay his victims. The
former insurance agent was accused of stealing nearly $450,000 from 23 investors over several years. The way he chose to attempt earning money for restitution was through gambling, said Phyllis H. Bowman, lead prosecutor with the state Securities Division. Bowman said she was not aware of other attempts to make restitution by gambling, although she noted that others have tried to earn money through real estate speculating. As a result of McMaster’s lack of luck at the poker table, Bowman said, “the means by which somebody obtains restitution, even if it’s legal and legitimate, will probably be questioned a little more closely.” After he failed to pay,
G e t C l a s s i fi e d
McMaster was sentenced Wednesday to 12 years in prison, five years of supervised probation after his release and ordered to make full restitution to his victims. He pleaded guilty last year to 26 felony charges, including securities fraud, sale of an unregistered security and sale of a security by an unlicensed broker-dealer. Bowman said McMaster got his clients to invest in promissory notes through his company, Santa Fe Financial Group Inc. The securities were not registered, he wasn’t a licensed broker and the money was not used for investment purposes. Investors had been promised up to 10 percent interest, but Bowman said they never received anything.

RPD arrests, charges Carabajal JESSICA PALMER RECORD STAFF WRITER
Roswell Police Department arrested Gracie Carabajal, 34, Monday. She was featured in Sunday’s Record as one of Roswell’s Most Wanted. Carabajal is charged with shooting at an occupied dwelling, shooting at or from a motor vehicle, and felon in possession of a firearm. She was wanted in connection with the March 23 drive-by shooting that occurred near the intersection of Summit Street and Richardson Avenue and the March 24 drive-by in the 800 block of South Richardson Avenue. The victim of the first shooting was parked on the west side of Richardson facing Summit when the incident occurred. She described the vehicle as a green low-rider Chrysler 4door. Another victim reported a
box of 9 mm ammunition missing from her home. According to the criminal complaint, a witness overheard Carabajal tell a friend that she was the one who shot at the house on Richardson. Of ficers located 9 mm shell casings at the scene. Two 9 mm bullets were also found near the home. Later officials talked to a witness who said Carabajal was seen in the vehicle described as a dark green low-rider. More than one person was able to pick Carabajal’s picture from a photo array line-up. Police went to an address which was believed to be her residence, but the house appeared to be abandoned. Eventually of ficials traced her to 610 E. Mescalero Road, where she was apprehended around 4 p.m., Monday. Carabajal is being held at Chaves County Detention
with a $75,000 cash surety bond. Shooting at a dwelling or occupied building that does not result in great bodily harm to another person is a fourth-degree felony. A felon in possession of a firearm is also a fourthdegree felony. An individual found guilty in a federal court as a felon in possession can receive up to 10 years in prison.
RPD assists with Eddy Co. case Brian Q. Taylor, 32, of Artesia, pleaded guilty to being a felon in possession of a firearm in Las Cruces federal court Tuesday. Taylor has been in federal custody since Dec. 20, 2010. According to indictment filed in U.S. District Court in November, Taylor was convicted for possession of a stolen vehicle in the Eddy County 5th Judicial
District. He had also been convicted previously as a felon in possession of a firearm, Jennings Model J-22, .22 caliber semiautomatic pistol, receiving stolen firearms and possession of a controlled substance, methamphetatimes. United States Attorney Kenneth J. Gonzales said that the charge arose out of conduct occurring on
Aug. 28, 2009, in Eddy County. The investigation was a joint effort of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and the Eddy County Sheriff’s Office with assistance from the Roswell Police Department. Taylor could receive up to 10 years in prison.
ALBUQUERQUE (AP) — A national panel of judicial and law enforcement experts convened Wednesday in New Mexico to begin its part in a massive federal and tribal effort aimed at revamping the justice system across Indian Country. The nine-member Indian Law and Order Commission was established under the Tribal Law and Order Act signed into law last summer by President Barack Obama. It is charged with conducting a comprehensive study of law enforcement and criminal justice in tribal communities across the country, and using its findings to make recommendations to Congress and the president. Jef ferson Keel, lieutenant gover nor of the Chickasaw Nation of Oklahoma and president of the National Congress of American Indians, was among the commissioners meeting in Santa Fe. He said the panel has the potential to be a driving force behind implementing the act, which contains sweeping changes aimed at giving tribes more authority, resources
Criminal Damage Police were called to the 700 block of North Beech Avenue, Tuesday, after a subject broke the front window, valued at $50, of a residence. Battery Police were called to the 1200 block of East Country

and information needed to combat crime on reservations. “Safe, strong tribal communities are in everyone’s interest,” Keel said in a statement, adding that the commissioners all have a “deep experience and a passion to address the issues facing tribal communities.” According to the federal government, violent crime rates on Indian reservations are more than twice the national rate, and there is an epidemic of domestic and sexual violence in Indian Country, along with high instances of child abuse, teen suicide and substance abuse. Federal officials have also said there is a proliferation of gang activity on reservations, and yet law enforcement recruitment and retention across Indian Country lag far behind the rest of the nation. Statistics show there is a roughly 40 percent unmet need in staffing for police officers. The commission will be focusing on these problems, as well as jurisdiction and juvenile justice issues, and the effect of
tribal jails and the federal prison systems on reducing crime and rehabilitating offenders. The T ribal Law and Order Act includes several key provisions, such as requiring U.S. attorneys who decline to prosecute alleged crimes in Indian Country to share information and evidence on those cases with tribal justice officials. It also improves the collection and reporting of crime data, expands tribal courts’ sentencing authority, revamps police training, and provides for the appointment of special U.S. attor neys to ensure violent crimes in tribal communities are prosecuted. The commission has until July 2012 to submit its findings and recommendations. Its other members include several tribal and federal justice officials; for mer Reps. Earl Pomeroy of North Dakota and Stephanie Herseth Sandlin of South Dakota; and University of California law professor Carole Goldberg.
Regulator OKs 21% BCBS rate hike
SANTA FE (AP) — State Insurance Superintendent John Franchini has approved a double-digit rate increase for Blue Cross and Blue Shield of New Mexico. The rate increase will average 21 percent and affects about 40,000 people. The state regulator on
Wednesday af fir med the settlement of a rate case that had been reached last year by Blue Cross and Blue Shield, the Insurance Division of the Public Regulation Commission and the attorney general’s office. However, public criticisms of the settlement forced its reconsideration. Several PRC members
issued statements objecting to the rate increase but said they had no power to overturn the superintendent’s decision. Commission members and Franchini urged Gov. Susana Martinez to sign pending legislation to strengthen regulatory review of health insurance premium increases.

Roswell Daily Record
They’re yanking chains again on Capitol Hill Have you noticed how the same old divisive legislative proposals invariably get new leases on life when a fresh batch of right-leaning politicos gets elected to Congress? For example, it’s a safe bet that somewhere along the line, there’ll be a hue and cry to cut federal funding for public broadcasting. It’s equally predictable there’ll be renewed zeal for so-called “English only” legislation designed to make English the official language of these United States. This one has legs and comes back to haunt political season after political season. And, sure enough, it is upon us anew, thanks in part to the large cadre of Republican tea partiers who were elected to the U.S. House of Representatives last November. Nor is Congress the only legislative body that finds itself agitated by the drive to make us an “officially” English speaking people.
Last month, by a 102-55 margin, the Missouri House of Representatives passed and sent to that state’s Senate a measure mandating that driver’s license tests be administered in English only in the Show Me state. Back on Capitol Hill, meanwhile, the Republican push intensified for legislation designating English “official” throughout this land — never mind that for the original Americans, English was nothing if not a foreign tongue. The measure is ironically called the “English Language Unity Act,” and it surfaced just as new census data were revealing national
demographic shifts that show erstwhile “minority” groups emerging as “majorities” in some parts of the country, New Mexico among them, where Hispanics now outnumber the former demographic majority variously known as “Caucasian” and/or “Anglo.” Notwithstanding the enthusiasm of its proponents, “English only” proposals have forever drawn critics who variously question the wisdom of such measures or dispute their legitimacy, often on constitutional grounds. “If freedom of speech does not embrace the right to speak a language of one’s choice or heritage,” some doubters ask, “what does it embrace?” In New Mexico the constitutional questions are particularly vexing precisely because, beginning with statehood in 1912, it has been constitutionally and legally imper missible to deny individuals the right to speak
and write languages other than English. Those legal guarantees in New Mexico are reflected on the ballots state voters find waiting for them every election year at their polling places where votes can be cast either in English or Spanish. Indeed some New Mexico historians contend that it is unlikely a state constitution would have been approved by territorial voters back in 1912 had Congress insisted on a provision mandating English as the new state’s “official” language. Over the years, moreover, members of Congress from New Mexico have typically eschewed “English only” legislative measures. Even former Sen. Pete Domenici, ever the loyal Republican, broke with his party when it tried to advance such legislation near the end of his years in the Senate. This time around little has
changed, with five of the state’s six members of Congress lined up against GOP efforts to designate English as the United States’ official language. Republican Steve Pearce, of the 2nd U.S. House District, is toeing the party line, however, irrespective of the conflict that would create between a federal statute and the New Mexico’s constitution and laws. On the other hand, this latest “English only” skirmish on Capitol Hill might be just another case of congressional Republicans yanking our chains to appease their right-leaning political base. Which could have been what District 1 Democratic Congressman Martin Heinrich had in mind when he said, “This bill is yet another wedge issue being used by congressional Republicans to distract from their utter lack of an economic policy.” © New Mexico News Services 2011
Congress must cut
The current appropriations bill — the Continuing Resolution — funding the federal government is set to expire Friday. If it does, it would cause a shutdown of some portions of the government. With the stakes so high, congressional Republicans ought to, as Rep. Mike Pence, R-Ind., recently told a group in Newport Beach, Calif., “pick a fight.” Nibbling around the edges will not lead to a responsible, balanced budget nor will it make a dent in the ballooning deficit. In February the House passed the current Continuing Resolution to avoid a government shutdown. Now, Republicans in the House are demanding more cuts to pass an actual fiscal 2011 budget. The magic number being floated in Washington is $61 billion. Currently the Obama administration and congressional Democrats have agreed to $33 billion in cuts. Republicans who say that figure is too low are right. The deficit projected for this year is $1.5 trillion. Even with the miniscule $61 billion in cuts, the budget is far from balanced. And those numbers do not take into account the $14 trillion national debt. The $61 billion in cuts demanded by Republicans is modest and shortsighted. Republicans are in a difficult spot, though. Many remember the political loss they endured at the hands of the Clinton administration because of the 1995 government shutdown, and they do not want to duplicate that political blunder. But Americans today are more attuned to the more massive budgetary problems facing the nation than they were in 1995. Also, Republicans in Congress must make significant progress on the budget or else suffer a backlash from tea party voters who helped usher them into office. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., has begun trying to drive a wedge between Republicans and the tea party. In a statement released on his website he said the GOP “has to decide whether it will do what the tea party wants it to do, or do what the country needs it to do.” If House Republicans, led by Speaker John Boehner, kowtow to Democratic threats, not only will they have to answer to tea party voters but they will also make a political blunder tantamount to the party’s stumble in 1995. In the context of a huge fiscal crisis, members of Congress must act decisively and aggressively to trim deficits. President Barack Obama invited Boehner, Reid and others to the White House to discuss ways to complete a deal; Republicans need to stay the course. Guest Editorial The Orange County Register

Legislation (SB 208) is now sitting on Gov. Martinez’s desk that would, at least in theory, bring greater transparency to health insurance pricing. The long and short of the bill is to set up new requirements if a company wishes to raise rates. Rising health care costs are of course a problem, but nothing in it will contain or reduce health care costs for New Mexicans. Nonetheless, the legislation is designed to achieve “mom and apple pie” status.
W ho co ul d opp ose t ran sparency that makes it more dif ficult to raise rates? In fact, we at the Rio Grande Foundation have been at the forefront in promoting gove r n me nt t ran sp ar en c y i n recent years. Transparency is generally a good thing, but it doesn’t save this bill. That’s because the problem with health care i n N ew M ex ic o a n d in t h e United States in general is not a lack of transparency, but a proliferation of government mandates and regulations that transform health insurance companies from competitive companies oper-
ating in a free market to the equivalent of a heavily-regulated government utility. The problem with SB 208 is not that it, on its own, will destroy health care in New Mexico. The problem is that the legislation and the mindset behind it further perpetuates the belief that we are just a few additional regulations away from better quality, more cost-effective health care. What we need are promarket health care reforms, not more meddling in how insurance rates are adjusted. It is instructive to compare more lightly-regulated markets with health car e. We
have a competitive market that “regulates” the price of car insurance and life insurance — not to mention the prices of computers, food and many other objects we purchase in our daily lives (without an elaborate and costly review process).

DEAR DR. GOTT: I recently had an MRI that showed some brain atrophy. A few days ago, I read a report that people whose mothers had Alzheimer’s show more rapid progression of brain atrophy. I’m 67, and my mother had what I believe was the Alzheimer’s/vascular combo dementia. No autopsy was performed. She showed symptoms in her early 70s, died at 85, and had two sisters who also had dementia. The recent MRI will have to be my “base.” How soon should I have another to monitor possible deterioration? What is the probability of me getting Alzheimer’s? DEAR READER: Atrophy of any tissue translates to a loss of cells. In the case of the brain,

this can mean either the entire brain or a limited focal area has shrunk. When both cerebral hemispheres are af fected, thought and behavioral function may be impaired. Atrophy is not the same as Alzheimer’s. As we age, the risk of developing Alzheimer’s increases. A family history will further increase that risk. Other factors include being female, long-standing
hypertension and trauma to the head. Early-onset Alzheimer’s is defined as appearing before the age of 65, is relatively uncommon, may be hereditary, and advances rather rapidly. Lateonset Alzheimer’s can af fect those 65 or older. As symptoms become apparent, a person may be confused, forgetful, unable to find the way home, have hallucinations, use incorrect words when speaking or speak in unintelligible sentences, may misplace things, suffer from depression, experience a change in sleep patterns and a great deal more. Most of us lose our car keys on occasion, repeat ourselves or forget an important appointment. It’s a situation I refer to as having “overloaded circuits.” It happens.
However, with the presence of Alzheimer’s, the situation worsens and symptoms become more pronounced. Treatment is initially provided in the form of medication aimed at slowing progression of the disease. There are a number of medications available on the market to do just that and to control aggressive behavior that might be present. There are also support groups for the patient and caregivers. The only true means of diagnosing Alzheimer’s is through brain-tissue samples after death, which will likely reveal twisted protein fragments within nerve cells that clog those cells, areas of dying nerve cells around proSee GOTT, Page A5

Some rules to follow when thinking about using Medicaid This is the third installment in a s e ri es on M e di c ar e a n d Medicaid. We covered Medicare in the first two installments and now we move to Medicaid for nursing homes; essentially a welfare program for those who qualify. Single folks don’t have a lot of Medicaid planning to do. Singles can keep the house until death when Medicaid has the r i gh t t o p u t a li e n o n i t fo r monies expended; you can keep a junk car (wanna buy one?); you can have a prepaid funeral plan of any size as long as it’s ir r ev o c ab l e; y o u c a n h a ve $2,000 in cash; and you will receive a generous allowance of $63 per month. Aside from these items, everyt h in g w i l l g o t o t h e n u rs i n g h o m e to p ay y ou r m o nt h l y freight with you or your power of attorney writing the checks, an d s in ce th a t m i g h t no t b e enough Medicaid will make up the balance, plus pills, hospitals and doctors for the rest of your life once you spend yourself down to these levels.

is not the case in health insurance. The Legislature did nothing this session to peel back New Mexico’s 57 mandates or make the provision of health care any cheaper (by eliminating the gross receipts tax on deductibles and co-pays or reforming Medicaid, for example). And, of course, the Obama Administration has further locked in existing inefficiencies in the system through onerous regulations from Washington. The attitude that more government regulation is doomed to continue making health care more costly and
less responsive to customer/patient needs.

Curfews costly and unnecessary
Dear Editor: What a surprise that newly elected state representative, recent interim Roswell chief of police, and former FBI guy, Dennis Kintigh, has proposed a law which intends to promote law and order at the expense of individual liberty. His bill would allow all cities in New Mexico to enact curfew laws which would require all persons under a certain age to be off the streets at a certain time at night. They could not appear again in public until a certain time in the morning. Kintigh’s bill has passed its first committee test and will next reach the Judiciary Committee. The idea is not a new one, and a number of states allow communities to enact curfews aimed at juveniles. The justification is that keeping juveniles off the streets at night reduces crime and the victims of crime. At first glance it looks like sweeping kids off the streets at night has a lot of merit, but we must remember that like all other citizens, kids have rights. The rights of parents, who have the primary responsibility for rules affecting the daily and nightly activities of their children, would also be diminished. The passage of a juvenile curfew ordinance in Roswell has now been advocated by Roswell Mayor Del Jurney, who has lobbied Judicial Committee members to move it forward. With Jurney’s public statements of support it is likely that Roswell would be the first city in New Mexico to put these restrictive measures into practice. Like any other law, a curfew will place an additional responsibility on our police force. Squadcars will roam our darkened streets checking out young people who are walking, standing on street corners or riding in cars. Possible violators may be required to produce identification to prove age. Those out beyond curfew would be sent or transported home or to a special detention center. In some cities parents have been required to pay substantial fines for failure to quickly pick up children who have been detained. The added time and responsibilities for a police force can be considerable when they’re asked not only to protect and serve their community, but to babysit as well. There is a lack of evidence to show that curfews are an effective way to reduce crime or to protect innocent victims of crime. In the few instances where crime decreased following the imposition of a curfew it was found that crime had increased during the non-curfew hours. And do these kids on dimly lit street corners have constitutional rights? It looks like they do. In 1969 the Supreme Court upheld an Iowa court’s ruling that students had a right to protest the Vietnam War under the First Amendment right to free speech. The Supreme Court has not directly addressed curfews for kids, but if the kids are out after dark protesting a curfew law, they will have the First Amendment of the United States of America on their side.

Religious scare tactics
Dear Editor: The other day when I came out of my office, I found a card in my window from some local church which said “WARNING TO ALL” “HELL AWAITS YOU.” It went on to describe that I needed to believe in Jesus or be tortured forever. That sounds like a flat out threat. Is this what religion has come down to? We have one church protesting everything in town, even other churches that believe what they believe, and we have other groups threatening people to believe or burn for eternity! What is wrong with these people? I started asking Protestant groups if they understood that all their fundamental teachings such as the trinity, hellfire and the immortal soul were from the Catholic Church. They unhappily acknowledged this. So I asked them if they knew that Pope John Paul had made an adjustment in the Catholic teaching of hell. The Pope made it clear that people do not burn in hell. That is no longer their understanding of hell. I definitely applaud an organization that can honestly look at the facts and is not afraid to correct itself or make adjustments. Well, it turns out I found no one who had heard this. What could these churches do now? They had received their teachings from the Catholic church and now the Catholic church was telling them they were wrong! All agreed that it was too late to change. They had taken the ball and run with it, and they couldn’t go back. So it occurred to me to start asking Catholics what they thought of the pope’s statement. To my surprise, not one single Catholic knew that Pope John Paul had adjusted the Catholic teaching of hellfire! Even further, they didn’t care. All they knew is that people burn in hell because that’s what they had been taught. So they didn’t care that the pope said people don’t burn in hell or that the Bible says, “the dead are conscious of nothing at all.” Neither the Protestants nor the Catholics cared that it would be inconceivable for a God of love to torture people for billions and trillions of years. No wonder people have turned away from religion. They’re a joke. They say all you have to do is believe, well the “demons believe and they shudder.” They say love your neighbor and then they send people off to war to kill. Jesus said “you received free, give free” and their ministers demand you tithe and

Golf course fence opposed
Dear Editor: To all those Roswell citizens living, walking, running or playing near the Spring River Golf Course: The Roswell Parks and Recreation Department has decided, without notice, to construct a 6-foot-tall green chain link fence around the Spring River Golf Course. They have already been cutting down healthy 60-foot tall elm trees for the fence path and plan to start by erecting this monstrosity down Riverside Drive from Montana Street to Wyoming as soon as possible. The cost for this first section will be $29,000 with the remainder totaling $200,000 to $300,000 in order to finish this eyesore. The reason for the fence is to keep everyone off this piece of property except golfers. Parks and Recreation explained that they do not have all of the money to finish the project now but will finish this project in segments when and if the money becomes available. They already have 3-foot to 5-foot chain link fences around the course that have not been maintained and need repair and they say they have no money for repairs. Why build something that you cannot maintain! If you like open spaces, do not want to be fenced in or out, or have alternative ideas please attend the next Parks and Recreation meeting at the Roswell Parks and Recreation Building located on West Fourth Street, next to the pool, on April 25, 2011, at 6 p.m. Fight the Fence Committee Matt Hinkle, Chair
Dear Editor: I just got back from a missions trip with our school, got to hear the most amazing story of prayer being rewarded with provision EVER and got to see some radical transformation in people’s lives — all in just four short days. I got to get up close and personal with some very bad situations and was protected by the Holy Spirit and was able to see the Kingdom of God grow right before my eyes, got to hear an amazing testimony from an ex-convict, was able to play basketball and serve ice cream to homeless people living at The Refuge, learned the importance of a two-way relationship, got to talk to people living at The Refuge, learned that homeless people are still people and are just as (if not more) intelligent than we are and that you can learn tons if you just sit down and talk to them. I was able to spend some quality time with some good friends, got to see what Jesus meant when He said go to all nations (including our own) and why He was so intense when He said to reach out to the lost and needy. I would never wish the lifestyle that I saw on anyone. It almost made me cry to think of people selling their bodies because they are hopelessly addicted to drugs. We got to see a legitimate breakthrough for God’s Kingdom ... our new friend Tim, the man who set up The Refuge, got invited to eat breakfast with Rock, the biggest drug dealer on that side of town. Tim told us he had at least a dozen calls about why a bunch of kids were spending their spring break working on some old houses. It really does the soul good to know something I did really helped someone else reach people for Jesus. I guess Tim getting those phone calls and getting to talk to Rock made all the hours of work worth it. It made our macaroni surprise and mystery meat sandwiches taste all the better. It made getting hit in the head with a bug infested rug more tolerable. It made the Word of God much more applicable. It made having to crawl through dumpsters not all that bad. It made all of my petty problems seem that much more lame. It just made life seem so much more worth living. If a couple of days scraping paint and hauling branches can accomplish that, then just imagine what a life spent doing the will of Jesus, which He so thoughtfully left us in the Bible, can accomplish? It gives me chill bumps to think about it, and it makes me want to smile and even sing. So if it feels so nice, why aren’t any of us, especially me, living this way? Makes ya think, huh?

Follies were fun
Dear Editor: If you missed the Fabulous Follies at Grace Community Church held on Friday night, Feb. 25, you don’t know what you missed.

Pastor Rick Hale opened the follies and presented the skits and songs, as well as managed the drawings. Fifty
Roswell Daily Record names were drawn, 10 in each of the various age groups. Prizes were donated by some of the community businesses and some by individuals. Believe me when I say there were some really nice prizes, some quite expensive. Thanks to all who participated. Some of the memorable events included the singing nuns from the Swiss Alps, Johnny Cash look-alike singing “The Ring of Fire,” a rendition from “The Phantom of the Opera,” one of several monks who wanted to be a lumberjack. To add a little humor, there were some church bloopers that were taken right out of well known newspapers. The game show Bible quiz was also very entertaining. To end the follies, there was a flag ceremony. Each branch of service was honored with the song that represents them, i.e. Army, Navy, Coast Guard, Air Force and the Marines. The follies ended, though the time went by very quickly. Make a mental note to attend this yearly event that comes around the last Friday of February. Hope to see you there next year. Yvonne M.

A new conspiracy theory
Dear Editor: The Republicans are conspiring to sabotage any improvements in the life of the common man before the 2012 election. Now really, does that sound logical? They haven’t introduced one jobs bill in the House in their 12 weeks of control. They want to repeal President Obama’s health care which fully becomes effective in 2014 and replace it with ... nothing! They want to repeal the new consumer finance protections that are about to kick in. They want to reduce the size of the government by eliminating personnel that: enforce tax collection; test for food, drug and medical device safety; pursue Medicaid and Medicare fraud; and keep the financial system honest. They want to reduce the cost of government by cutting funding for: food stamps; Medicaid; education; student aid; medical research, even though it would reduce the cost of Medicare in the future. They want to emasculate the EPA so that polluters get free rein. How about that? Protecting the polluters instead of you and me ... the people. A theory? It sounds more like a strategy than anything else. And most of these assaults on us are already in HR1, the bill passed by the Republican controlled House. Is that what you really wanted when you voted for the conservative agenda? Or perhaps you didn’t bother voting even though you were against the conservative agenda. Sincerely, Chuck Russell Roswell
‘Coin show’ not a coin show
Dear Editor: Informing the public of local events is an important function of a local newspaper, but your front page article today “Cha-Ching! Coin collectors collect cash” while factually correct, left a great deal unreported. First, the use of the term “coin show” is misleading. Generally a coin show is an event organized by a hobbyist group and provides educational seminars and displays in addition to a “bourse” at which multiple coin dealers buy and sell their wares. The International Coin Collectors Association is not an educational group, but a consortium of dealers: a private firm that travels around purchasing coins and scrap precious metals. This sort of firm typically pays far less than fair market value. The transaction described in the first paragraph of your story is a case in point. The impression I drew from the story was that ICCA had paid $52 for six Morgan silver dollars, which would have been about one-fourth of their value. A subsequent telephone call with the reporter indicated that some of the coins were half-dollars. If only two of the coins were dollar coins, the seller received less than the scrap silver value of the coins. Silver has been hovering around $37 this week. A Morgan silver dollar contains .7734 oz of silver. Its silver content alone would be more than $28. A local firm may not pay $28 for a silver dollar, or they may pay more. I am a partner in a local firm, M & M Coin Company, which has been buying and selling coins in this community for over 35 years. The prices we pay depend on the condition and rarity of the coin, and current market prices. Recently, we have been buying pre1921 silver dollars for $30 and more apiece. There are other local firms as well, none of which were consulted before your front page puff-piece was printed. Had they been, your article might have had a different spin. These out-of-town buyers are not doing the local collectors or the local economy much of a service. And the Roswell Daily Record has not done local businesses or collectors a service by presenting them in such a favorable light. Their presence in Roswell is news. But it is not good news. Very truly yours, Charmaine L. Martin Roswell

Long-term care and retirement Lifetime retirement planning with Wells Fargo Advisors
As life expectancy moves upwards, so does the need for long-term care. It may surprise you to realize that approximately 70% of Americans now turning 65 will need some form of longterm care during retirement. Forty percent of those will require long-term care in a nursing home.1 With nursing-home costs now averaging more than $83,000 a year, depending on where you live, the costs of long-term care can take a big bite out of your retirement income, or deplete the assets you may want to leave to your beneficiaries.2 In fact, in many cases, mounting long-term care expenses can require your heirs to pay for your care. Long-term care insurance You may never need longterm care, but if you do, having a long-term care insurance policy can help protect your retirement assets from being drastically depleted over a short period of time. Many longterm care policies pay most of the costs of expensive assisted-living care, whether in nursing homes, hospices, or adult day-care facilities, and some policies will pay for in-home care as well. Coverage generally starts when you are no longer able to perform certain defined activities of daily living for yourself, such as eating, bathing, or dressing. Long-term care insurance is not for everyone. To decide whether it's right for you, keep the following parameters in mind. If you have more than $2 million in assets and anticipate a short stay in a facility due to your personal and family health history, you may wish to pay these costs out of pocket. You may also decide against long-term care insurance if you have less than $50,000 in

A long-term care policy makes the most sense for those with retirement assets of between $100,000 and $2 million. Also realize that most people need longterm care because of the effects of disease (such as Alzheimer's or a stroke), not old age. When considering purchasing a policy, look at your family's health history and ask yourself how likely it is that you may need long-term care. Many American seniors do not have enough money saved to cover even one year of nursing home care. This despite the fact that long-term care costs are rarely covered by private health insurance policies, employer-provided retiree health insurance, or Medicare. In addition, Medicaid only pays for the long-term needs of those who have exhausted almost all of their assets.
How much will it cost? Long-term care premiums can be hefty the older you are. A 65-year-old in good health can expect to pay between $2,000 and $3,000 a year for a policy.3 By buying earlier, however, when you are in your 50s and in good health, you may be able to pay less per month. The annual cost of longterm care insurance also depends on a number of other factors, including: • Duration of benefits: This is the length of time the policy will pay for the care required. The shorter your benefit period, the less expensive the premiums should be. With the average nursing home stay being two and a half years, opting for a three-to-four-year benefit period rather than a lifetime benefit may be a consideration depending on your specific situation.4 • Daily benefit: This is the dollar amount the policy will pay for the care required. If the actual daily care expense is greater
than the daily benefit amount paid by the policy, you would owe the difference. The amount you choose (typically from $50 to $350 per day) will
depend on what sort of care you want, where you'll receive it, and your ability to cover any excess costs. • Elimination period: This is a waiting period before your policy begins paying benefits. It can range from 20 to 100 days, and you will have to pay out of pocket until it ends. The shorter your wait, the higher your premium. Other issues that will affect the cost of your longterm care coverage are the range of care you choose, any pre-existing conditions, and provisions made for guaranteed renewability of your policy. Before choosing any provider or policy, you should carefully review your options and the policy's terms and conditions.

Celiac disease requires special diet for health, not weight loss Immune system disorder is one of most under-diagnosed medical conditions BY DAVID LIANG, MD, ZIA MEDICAL SPECIALISTS Given the continuing popularity of low-carbohydrate diets for weight loss, a gluten-free regime may seem like the latest incarnation of an antibread and pasta trend among those trying to slim down. Recent news reports have held up gluten-free diets as the solution for a variety of ailments, from arthritis to autism. Celebrities swear by it. But in fact, the diet is actually a treatment plan for celiac disease, a serious condition that affects one in every 100 Americans. Celiac disease, an incurable immune system disorder, affects as many as three million Americans, and most people with the disease are unaware that they have it. It’s estimated that only three percent of individuals with celiac disease have been diagnosed. People with celiac disease are unable to properly digest foods with gluten protein, which is found in grains like wheat, rye and barley. For these individuals, gluten causes a reaction in their immune system that damages the lining of the small intestine and impedes the body’s ability to absorb important vitamins and nutrients: calcium, protein, carbohydrates, and fats. Untreated, celiac disease can lead to severe damage of the gastrointestinal tract, lactose intolerance, anemia, osteoporosis, neurological complications and possibly, cancer. The disease is difficult to diagnose because its symptoms can be mistaken for other conditions, from irritable bowel syndrome to chronic fatigue, anemia or simple stress. Its symptoms vary and do not occur on a regular basis. Symptoms of celiac disease include fatigue, irritability, depression, arthritis, diarrhea, gas, bloating, vomiting, constipation and impaired digestion. In fact, the National Commission on Digestive Diseases has noted that because of the way celiac disease is manifested, it takes an average of seven years for an adult to be diag-
nosed. A recent study at Columbia Medical School suggested that this is because the criteria used to diagnose the disorder are too stringent, leaving many people with the disease to go undiagnosed.
Celiac disease is hereditary and affects both children and adults. Its exact cause is unknown. According to the Mayo Clinic, having a family member with the disease increases your risk of developing the disease by five to 15 percent. Traditionally, it has been considered a rare childhood disease— another reason it often goes undetected in adults— but it can show up at any time later in life, especially following an injury, after pregnancy, surgery or even severe stress. Children with celiac disease may exhibit symptoms such as abdominal pain, nausea, lack of appetite, anemia, mouth sores, and allergic dermatitis (a skin rash), and may fail to gain weight, experience delayed puberty or have stunted growth. Other symptoms might include irritability, emotional withdrawal or excessive dependence. If you think you may suffer from celiac disease, it’s important to talk with your doctor, who will schedule tests to screen for the disease. Celiac disease is diagnosed through a biopsy of the small intestine, or a blood test. A biopsy will look for damage to the villi, the small, finger-like projections found on the wall of the small intestine that help to move food and facilitate absorption of vital nutrients. Don’t try a gluten-free diet on your own prior to seeing the doctor, as this may actually mask symptoms of the disease. Celiac disease is not curable, but can be controlled with a proper diet.

If you are diagnosed with celiac disease, a registered dietitian can formulate a gluten-free diet for you that will help alleviate symptoms and ensure good nutrition. Currently, the only remedy for celiac disease is a permanent change in diet, which controls symptoms, although other treatment methods are being researched. Eastern New Mexico Medical Center is dedicated to your health and wellness. A registered dietician can help you with an eating plan that’s nutritious, balanced and appropriate for your needs.

Going Gluten-Free n A gluten-free diet may seem quite restrictive, but the good news is, you can continue to eat many of the things you enjoy with smart shopping and careful menu planning. n A gluten-free diet is a diet free of any form of wheat, rye or barley. Most foods made from grains contain gluten, unless they are specifically labeled as gluten-free or made with corn, rice, soy or other gluten-free grains.
n Gluten can come from other sources, too, such as food additives like malt flavoring or modified food starch; medication and vitamins that use gluten as a binding agent; lipstick and even postage stamps. Remember that cross-contamination is possible in areas where many ingredients are used: cutting boards, mixing bowls, condiment containers or shared eating utensils. n Many bakeries and grocery stores now carry gluten-free items and several major food brands produce gluten-free lines that include flour, crackers, pretzels, soup, pizza, lasagna, and pasta. Foods with allergens are labeled as such by law.

Tips on tilling hard soil in your garden
Q. I was all ready to plant some tomatoes and peppers today, but found that when I started to dig my holes, just a couple of inches down, I hit rock hard ‘soil’. I dug as much as I could and have soaked the holes with water to try to break it up deep enough for planting. What can I add to this ‘soil’ to turn it into something more suitable for gardening/planting? And how much of whatever material that you suggest should I use? I had assumed that my location had been used as a garden area before as it is fenced and has water nearby. And since the irises in the iris bed are coming up looking healthy and vibrant, I was further convinced that I could dig a hole, throw in some miracle grow and plant to my heart’s content! My garden is located about 10 miles south of Deming.
A. Hard soil is not uncommon in New Mexico. It may be due to rocks (many small rocks), caliche (soil particles cemented by high calcium concentrations in the soil), or just the fact that when our soil is dry, it is often as hard as pavement. Dry soil can turn a shovel into a pogo stick. If the problem is caliche, a solution may be for you to make raised beds or container gardens. You can try to dig out the caliche, but it is much easier to build above the soil, especially for flowers and vegetables (trees and shrub planting require very large raised beds and depth considerations). An advantage of raised beds is that you can engineer the soil (mixing purchased components and some native soil) to create the ideal soil for the plants you intend to grow. As you water these beds and add organic matter (and perhaps sulfur) to the soil, it may begin to decompose the caliche below and in time may make a deeper soil available for gardening. If the problem is just dry soil, and this has been a very dry year for most of New Mexico, then irrigate the soil slowly to moisten the soil. You will find that the soil becomes much more workable when it is moist. A soaker hose, sprinkler on low, or even a hose just trickling in the area to be prepared can help. When you can work the soil, add organic matter (compost) that will help increase the moisture holding capacity of the soil and improve its structure allowing better aeration and water penetration. It will then be ready for planting. Your local NMSU Extension Service County Agent can help you determine the specific nature and problems with your soil in your location. They can also advise you regarding collecting samples for soil testing and help you interpret soil test results. They can also tell you where to send your soil sample for testing. Soil testing is a good idea when starting a new garden, and periodically thereafter. For more gardening information, visit the NMSU Extension website.

ARIES (March 21-April 19) HHHH One doesn’t need to be up for long to note the tenor of your day. Confusion seems to reign as you symbolically play “who’s on first.” If you maintain a sense of humor, you actually could be laughing. Tonight: Swap war stories with a friend. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) HHH With chaos as a theme, especially when dealing with funds, you know what not to do. Make no decisions; take no action or do anything that could have an impact. Observe rather than play. Tonight: A happy Bull is a frugal Bull! GEMINI (May 21-June 20) HHHH Yes, you might have stardust dropping on you, but look around. If everyone in your life is
JACQUELINE BIGAR YOUR HOROSCOPE having issues, perhaps even just talking to you, how good of day can it be? Remain sensitive to an older relative or friend. Tonight: Keep on smiling. CANCER (June 21-July 22) HH Realize that you cannot do it all, nor would you want to. Just the same, take advantage of an opportunity to do just that. You might remember where your desire to cooperate came from! A sense of humor goes far. Tonight: Extra R and R. (Do vanish.) LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) HHHH You might be naturally more jovial than many of your contemporaries. Still, enough is enough
in your book — especially when an associate or loved one you considered stable goes flaky. The good news: This too will pass! Tonight: Where your friends are. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) HHH You easily might be left holding the bag, as much tumbles to the wayside. How you handle a situation and decision you need to make might not be the norm. Look around — how nor mal is everything? Then decide. Tonight: Could be late, very late. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) HHHH Reach out for a friend or associate who often gives you excellent advice. You might not be ready for this person’s opinions and feedback. You’ll see a situation far differently after a discussion. Rethink your options. Tonight: Put on a great piece of music. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) HHHH Close relating occurs with

This person needs that experience and opens up with ease. Another person’s high creativity triggers your innate ingenuity. Tonight: Determine your weekend plans. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) HHHH Deal with someone as directly as possible. You might not be sure about what could emerge from this situation. A roommate or family member seems very energetic. Let this person pick up what you would prefer not to do. Tonight: Get as
much rest as possible. You are going to need it come Saturday. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) HHHHH You might not be workoriented or in the mood to accomplish much. A good conversation here and there allows greater give-and-take within these relationships. Face it — you feel like a socialite of sorts. And you want to be one, too. T onight: Start the weekend early. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) HHH Hold another’s place open until he or she can center and make a decision. You know what is happening within a special relationship — the other party might not be getting the message. Tonight: Go with the flow, but stay home.

Networks work to master new era of sports in 3-D
NEW YORK (AP) — The camera is affectionately known as WALL-E, its two lenses reminiscent of the eyes on the animated movie robot. It shoots sports in 3-D, a sci-fi sight that's the product of the newest way fans can watch games on TV. Few are doing so for now. In fact ESPN, which launched a 3-D network last summer, doesn’t even have exact numbers on how many people are putting on their glasses and tuning in. But the focus is on working out the kinks of broadcasting sports in 3-D, so the network will be ready when the audience starts to grow. Research firm DisplaySearch estimated that fewer than 1.6 million 3-D capable sets were sold in the U.S. last year, and not all those owners are necessarily taking advantage of 3-D programming. Yet television manufacturers and movie studios are committed to the medium, and sales are expected to increase exponentially in the next few years. At last month’s Big East men’s basketball tournament, ESPN personnel in their 3-D production truck outside Madison Square Garden celebrated a particularly nifty shot from an overhead angle that captured the ball bouncing straight up from the rim and then down through the net. Cameraman Eric Grubb, who’s worked for the network for a quarter-century, has had to relearn many of his instincts developed over the years. For 2-D TV, he tends to zoom a lot. For 3-D, he has to remind himself to stay wide, to “let the shot speak for itself.” “You try to create a human experience,” coordinating producer Phil Orlins said. “Eyes don’t zoom.” In the truck, they try to
cut between shots at a slower pace. Viewers say that when a 3-D program switches from one shot to another, it sometimes looks out of focus. It’s not, but that’s how the brain perceives the shift. In other cases, 3-D is more susceptible to technical difficulties that really will give you a headache. Unlike filming a movie, sports are live and have to be shot right the first time — and the need for two cameras to create the 3-D image greatly increases the odds something will go awry. If the color is slightly different in the right camera than the left, the viewer’s brain will sense the picture is wrong. If the two transmissions are off by a split second, the broadcast appears as though it’s underwater. Even when the technology is working perfectly, some sports just look better in 3D than others. Orlins says the three keys are proximity, predictability, and a threedimensional playing surface. The X Games are a 3-D producer’s dream. Proximity: When Shaun White is snowboarding down the halfpipe, the camera can capture him in a tight shot. Predictability: The director knows ahead of time the basic path of his run. Playing surface: The steepness and enormity of the halfpipe come to life in 3-D. Conversely, Orlins said, “if the court is flat, it still looks flat.” A very different sort of competition — golf — also thrives in 3-D. Last year, the Masters was the first major sports event broadcast live internationally on TV and the Internet in 3-D. ESPN 3D will air two hours from each round this week. “That commitment and
embracing technology will just enhance the enjoyment for the fans of the Masters,” ESPN executive vice president John Wildhack said. Baseball isn’t anywhere near as good a fit because it requires too wide a shot. “People think it will pop out at you,” Orlins said of the ball flying off the bat. “But it travels too far.” Some sports also allow for more cost-efficient 3-D productions. For the kinds of shots needed for boxing and X Games, ESPN could use the same camera setup for 2-D and 3-D, which requires fewer personnel. Orlins estimated he needed 14 extra people at the Big East tournament to do a separate 3-D broadcast. “You need to be able to do that to make it a fully viable business,” Orlins said of combining productions. Grubb and the other camera operators review video after each 3-D event, learning a little more each time. How not to give the viewer vertigo. How to think in layers.

NA T I O N A L BRIEFS DUKE’S IRVING HEADED TO NBA AFTER 1 SEASON DURHAM, N.C. (AP) — Point guard Kyrie Irving is leaving Duke after one season to enter the NBA draft. Coach Mike Krzyzewski said in a statement issued Wednesday by the school that Irving plans to hire an agent, ending his college career. “Our whole program is overjoyed with having Kyrie here for one year and that he has the chance now to pursue a dream of being a high draft pick and a great player in the NBA,” Krzyzewski said. “We are totally supportive of Kyrie, his family and his decision. We look forward to continuing to work with him during the upcoming months leading to his entry into the NBA and afterwards while he is an NBA player.” Irving played only 11 games and missed roughly two-thirds of the season with an injured big toe on his right foot. The 6-foot-2 averaged 17.5 guard points, 3.4 rebounds and 4.3 assists for top-seeded Duke, which was upset by Arizona in the West regional semifinals. “It was a great experience playing for Coach K,” Irving said. “He taught me a lot about the game. Even when I was hurt, I learned a lot. Also a special thanks goes to the medical staff for getting me back on the court for the NCAA Tournament and my teammates for sticking with me throughout the entire year. Duke offered me an experience I could never have imagined.” When Irving was healthy, he was electrifying. His 31point performance against then-No. 6 Michigan State marked just the fourth time in school history that a freshman scored 30 points in a game. He was the MVP of the CBE Classic after averaging 14.5 points and six assists. But his only season at Duke ultimately might be defined by the 26 games he missed after he jammed his toe during a win over Butler on Dec. 4, and the lingering subplot surrounding the Blue Devils was when — or even if — he would return.

Winter coaches honored by CC! Character Counts! of Chaves County announced the recipients of its 201011 Winter Coaches of Character awards on Wednesday. This year’s winners are Dexter High School girls basketball coach Kim Hamill, Goddard High School boys basketball coach Kevin Jones and Goddard High School dance team coordinator Judaun Prichard. Each award winner will receive an honorary plaque, a gift certificate to an area restaurant and a certificate good for a one-night stay at the Lodge at Sierra Blanca in Ruidoso, all courtesy of PrimeSource Mortgage and Stone Community Bank.
Hamill helped the Dexter Lady Demons reach the state tournament this season despite battling a plague of injuries. Hamill and the Demons won the District 5-2A tournament and earned one of the 16 bids in the 2A state tournament. Hamill teaches physical education and health at Dexter Middle School and is the coordinator and a coach for the Dexter Youth Basketball League. The Grace Community Church member earned a Bachelor of Science from Easter n New Mexico University in 1990 and a Master of Science from Emporia State University in 2003. “Coach Hamill instills the Six Pillars of Character every day with all of her teams,” said Dexter athletic
director David Campbell. “This year, the Dexter Youth Basketball program was going to fold. Kim took it upon herself to not let this important program terminate. “Coach Hamill not only kept the program alive, but also has volunteered to coach two teams while still coaching the varsity to a state berth.” “Coach Hamill shows the Six Pillars of Character, on and off the court. Coach Hamill will go out of her way to help us succeed in every way possible,” said girls basketball team captain Sylvia Mediano. “She will drive miles and miles just to get us game film for our next game. You can say, in a way, she puts her personal life aside so that we are her first priority. “Coach Hamill treats everyone equal and always has high expectations for
us. That is how Coach demonstrates the Six Pillars of Character, on and off the court, with her players.”
Jones guided the Rockets to the state championship game for just the second time in school history and a state runner -up finish. After helping the Rockets win the district tournament championship and a firstround state game, he steered Goddard past a pair of top four seeds to reach the championship game for the first time since 1988. Jones is a physical education teacher at Goddard High School and is also a class sponsor at the high school. He received a Bachelor of Science from Eastern New Mexico University. “Kevin Jones has done an incredible job in leading
our Rockets to the state tournament this season,” said Goddard athletic coordinator Michelle Edgett. “Throughout the year, Coach Jones has proven himself to be focused on the right aspects of the game; sportsmanship, fair play, being respectful to teammates and others and those other intangible qualities we all want our student-athletes to leave our programs with. “He is the consummate example of Pursuing Victory with Honor. He exhibits all six pillars of Character Counts! in the classroom, on the basketball court when things are not always going his way and in our community.” “To start off, Kevin Jones is a great guy, truly respectful and caring. A way he shows his character pillars is by the way he handles himself, on and off
the court,” said Rocket team captain Ruben Otero. “As a head coach, he does not tell off the referees, but keeps control of his emotions. People say it’s not how it is you act or what you do when you’re with others, but what you do when you’re by yourself. That’s a big part of Coach Jones because, with nobody asking him to, he always tries to find a way to help others as much as he can.”

Lockout ruling to take ‘couple of weeks’
AP Photo Football player Ben Leber, left, leaves the Federal Courthouse in St. Paul, Minn., Wednesday, after a break in a hearing in which the NFL players are seeking to lift the lockout by team owners.
ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — As she wrapped up the fivehour hearing on the legality of the NFL lockout, the federal judge overseeing the case said she’d take “a couple of weeks” to rule on the players’ request to return to work. U.S. District Judge Susan Richard Nelson, however, urged the two sides not to wait that long. “It seems to me both sides are at risk, and now is a good time to come back to the table,” Nelson said, noting her willingness to facilitate the resumption of talks toward a new collective bargaining agreement that would put pro football back on track. Owners and players failed to reach that goal last month, leading to the decertification of the union, the lockout of the players and the antitrust lawsuit against the owners filed here by the players.

Texas still undefeated after 7-3 win
ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Mitch Moreland delivered the tiebreaking double for the still undefeated Texas Rangers of f Cy Young winner Felix Hernandez. The young first baseman then ear ned a dinner from new teammate Adrian Beltre for his work with the glove. Moreland put the Rangers ahead to stay with his RBI double into the right-field cor ner in the seventh. He then started the next inning with an incredible snag of Beltre's bounced throw after the Gold Glove third baseman made an equally impressive stop in the Rangers' 73 win over the Seattle Mariners on Wednesday. “It was OK. He made a better play than I did because it was a tough hop I threw over there, a little two-seamer low. He picked it very nice,” said Beltre, who snagged Milton Bradley’s hard high chopper near the line. “Every
time he does that I owe him a dinner. Hopefully he can save me a lot of errors.” So far this season, the AL champion Rangers are flawless. They wrapped up their season-opening homestand with their first 6-0 start since 1996, when they set a team record by winning their first seven games. Texas has a day off Thursday before starting its first road trip of the season Friday in Baltimore. “Everybody’s talking about homers, but pitching and defense got us where we needed to be, got us six big wins,” designated hitter Michael Young said. Moreland's go-ahead hit in the seventh inning, which he pulled down the line into the right-field corner, made a winner of C.J. Wilson (1-0).

agree on much these days. Attorneys for the players said they’re open to talking again. Lawyers for the league hedged on their eagerness to take Nelson up on her offer, by saying the owners prefer to be back at the bargaining table. The injunction request — a plea to the judge that the lockout be immediately lifted on the grounds that their careers are being irreparably harmed — was the sole purpose of Wednesday’s hearing. The court appearance was the first round — call it the first quarter — between the NFL and the players in their legal fight over the future of the $9 billion business and the 2011 season. Teams of attorneys from both sides, officials from the now-dissolved union, several NFL players and dozens of reporters crowded See RULING, Page B2
Bonds rests with no defense witnesses SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Barry Bonds’ confident defense team rested its case Wednesday without calling a single witness, just minutes after a federal judge accepted the government’s request to dismiss one of the five counts against the home run king. Prosecutors called 25 witnesses to the stand over 2½ weeks, but the defense needed just one minute to present its side. The jury of eight women and four men barely

the courtroom, but little was accomplished other than the formal launch of the legal process. David Boies, a lawyer for the NFL, argued that the court shouldn’t have jurisdiction while the National Labor Relations Board is considering an unfair labor charge filed by the league that players didn’t negotiate in good faith. The NFL’s contention is that the union’s decertification was a tactical maneuver and that it has the legal right to keep players from working. Boies claimed players are still acting like a union, that the NFL Players’ Association is funding the litigation and has set up other services for the players as if it were a fully for med labor entity. DeMaurice Smith, the head of the NFLPA, attended the hearing, and the players, lawyers and union officials arrived and departed together in a bus. “They’re financing this lawsuit,” Boies said. “They’re saying, ‘We’re no longer a collective bar-

It's the law,” Quinn said. “It’s what we’re allowed to do.” Plaintiffs Mike Vrabel, Ben Leber, Vincent Jackson, Brian Robison and Von Miller were joined in court by veterans Tony Richardson and Charlie Batch, members of the union’s executive committee prior to dissolution. Tom Brady, Peyton Manning and Drew Brees, the three highest profile players named on the lawsuit, did not attend. Hall of Famer Carl Eller, the lead plaintiff in a separate, similar case filed by retirees, former players and rookies, was also present. Nelson approved a motion to consolidate those cases, and attorney Michael Hausfeld — on behalf of the Eller group — took turns with Quinn arguing against and rebutting Boies.

She expressed some frustration trying to understand some of the arguments, mostly those made by Boies, but oversaw a cordial process, telling the two sides they did an “outstanding job.” Both sides praised Nelson afterward for her thorough approach and intelligent questions. As she began the hearing, she urged both sides to stick to the issue of the injunction and not delve into the evidence presented previously in their briefs since all parties are up to speed on the information. “You can assure that the court has done nothing else in the last few weeks,” Nelson said.

He struck out six and walked three. “It was the wind first, I couldn’t get my balance. But after that I felt good. All the pitchers were working,” Hernandez said. “I know they’re gonna swing anyway, so I just have to make good pitches. It was pretty good today, I got seven innings.” A pair of errors by newly converted second baseman Jack Wilson led to the Mariners’ troubles.

had time to get settled in the courtroom before being told to return Thursday morning for closing arguments. “We are expecting that you will get this case for decision tomorrow,” U.S. District Judge Susan Illston said to them. “Tomorrow will be the last day.” Once indicted on as many as 15 counts, Bonds will face just four charges when the jury starts deliberations in a courthouse less than two miles from the ballpark where he set records for the Giants. A decision could come as early as Friday — when the World Series championship flag is raised in San Francisco for the first time. Faced with a defense motion that Illston was prepared to grant, prosecutors dropped the count accusing Bonds of lying to a grand jury in 2003 when he said prior to that season he never took anything other than vitamins from trainer Greg Anderson.

On eve of Masters, the talk about Woods isn't good
TIM DAHLBERG,AP Sports Columnist AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) — There was a time when Tiger Woods would have responded to the perceived slight in the way he knew best — with his clubs. A 65 on Sunday, perhaps, good enough to slip on another green jacket while Ian Poulter waited at the airport for a flight home. Getting even used to be easy when life was so much easier. A thrashing on the golf course usually took care of anyone who challenged the great one's supremacy, lest they dare open their mouths again. Could still happen, of course. Woods tees off Thursday hoping a retooled swing and his intimate knowledge of Augusta National could carry him to a fifth Masters title, and you can't completely discount the possibility no matter how erratic he's been. More likely, though, is that Poulter was spot on when he said he didn't see Woods finishing in the top five this week. Best clue why? Woods himself says it's true. "Well, Poulter is always right, isn't he?" Woods said. Sure, the words were spoken sarcastically. But the fact they were spoken at all was telling. The old Woods would have simply responded to the Englishman's comments by narrowing his eyes or shaking his head. There was nothing to say when his clubs could say it all. He dominated Augusta National just by his presence. There was never any need to check his tee time because you could hear it coming. "He walked to the range and it was like a freight train arriving," three-time Masters champion Nick Faldo said. For the first time in 12 years Woods is not the favorite to wear the green jacket that goes to the winner. Phil Mickelson is, and the wise guys in Vegas don't even make it close. At his peak, bettors could put down $20 to win $30 on Woods in the Masters. This week they can bet $10 and win $100, but even the prospect of a big payoff hasn't lured them to put a lot of money on Woods. "They've definitely figured out over the last year and, especially in this tournament, Tiger is obviously not on his game," said Jay Kornegay, who runs the sports book at the Las Vegas Hilton. Woods' fellow players have figured that out, too, though they are careful to avoid

Bonds testified in front of the grand jury that Anderson told him the substances were flaxseed oil and arthritic balm. The remaining counts charge Bonds with lying when he denied knowingly receiving steroids from Anderson, denied getting human growth hormone from Anderson and said he only allowed himself to be injected by doctors. The final count accuses Bonds of obstruction of justice. On the 11th day of the trial, the defense presentation lasted about the time it took Bonds to circle the bases after one of his record 762 home runs. Lawyer Cristina Arguedas read the jury one answer from the grand jury testimony of former Bonds’ girlfriend Kimberly Bell in which Bell said she wrote her own diary. That conflicts with Bell’s trial testimony, in which she said ghost writer Aphrodite Jones collaborated on the diary. looking as if they're dancing on the carcass of the Tiger of old. Some, like Mickelson, keep quiet, perhaps fearful that the Tiger of old might reappear and start snatching majors away from them. Asked Tuesday whether Woods' problems since his sex scandal erupted might keep him from winning five more majors to break the record of 18 held by Jack Nicklaus, the normally loquacious Mickelson clammed up. "I don't have an opinion, no," Mickelson said. The Europeans aren't nearly as cautious. Rory McIlroy said in a bylined piece in Sports Illustrated magazine's "Golf Plus" section earlier this year that Woods was "playing like an ordinary golfer" and that he doubted he could ever dominate again. And Poulter said Monday that Woods' shots were too inconsistent for him to finish in the top five this week — though he later sent out a few tweets saying his words were blown out of proportion. "Note to self when asked about Tiger: always (B.S.) & say what they want to hear, or you will be ridiculed," Poulter tweeted to his 1 million-plus followers. Just what is wrong with Woods is the subject of debate from the locker room at Augusta National to pubs in Scotland, the birthplace of golf. He insists it is simply a matter of technique and that things will be fine once he gets his swing dialed in, though others believe it runs far deeper than that. "He still hasn't fully come to terms with the fact that he's not the same person he was before," said Patrick Wanis, a Los Angeles human behavior and relationship expert. "He still has a sense of shame, a sense of guilt." What is clear is that Woods is a shadow of the player who, 10 years ago, completed the Tiger Slam by winning the Masters and becoming the first person to hold all four professional major championships at the same time. He followed that with another streak after his father died in 2006, winning 18 of 33 tournaments worldwide and had a seven-month stretch without ever losing.

Shutdown threat worries Yellowstone businesses HELENA, Mont. (AP) — Business owners dependent on the tourists headed to Yellowstone National Park are concerned about a possible government shutdown closing the park. But if there has to be one, they say, better it happen now when the visitors are few — and they pray it doesn’t stretch into the summer. Congressional negotiators were trying to reach a spending agreement by Friday that would avert a shutdown of most government functions, including operations in national parks across the country. The last such shutdown took place 15 years ago and lasted 21 days. April is a quiet time in Yellowstone. For much of the month, only the buffalo visit Old Faithful. The northern entrance is the only one open to vehicles before April 15. The few hardy visitors who come are usually weekend warriors looking to spy on wolves in the Lamar Valley or in search of the last spots of snow still suitable for skiing and snowshoeing. Yellowstone had 32,763 visitors last April, an attendance number that park spokesman Al Nash compared to “about a day during our peak summer months.” But even though visitors
are few, park workers are busy preparing for the summer hordes. Road plowing started in March and will continue until Memorial Day, with more than 300 miles of pavement needing to be cleared. Hotels, stores and park facilities have to be reopened. The water and sewer systems have to be readied. “It’s a real challenge just to get the roads cleared, let alone starting to reopen buildings,” Nash said. “There are a lot of moving parts to getting Yellowstone ready for that peak season.” If there is a shutdown, that work would stop and the park would close to visitors. A limited number of park employees would be on duty to handle emergencies, but visitor services would be closed, Nash said. Park staf f would tell campers at the one open campground they have to leave, and employees would post notices at trailheads notifying the few people who are in the backcountry. One park road between Gardiner and Cooke City would remain open to through traffic, but travelers would not be allowed to stop except for an emergency, Nash said. “A flat tire is an emergency. Seeing a wolf is not,”
he said. Bill Berg, the president of the Gardiner Chamber of Commerce, just outside the park’s north entrance, said he was concer ned any interruption would affect the park’s readiness for the tourist season. “It will hit (the park employees’) pocketbooks, but it could also set the park back in being able to open on time,” Berg said. “If the park doesn’t open on time, it’s definitely going to be a financial hit for businesses that already struggle with a highly seasonal economy.” Business owners say the park doesn’t even have to close down — the mere threat of a gover nment shutdown could cause them harm. People planning their summer vacations are likely to be influenced by the uncertainty surrounding the current negotiations, they say. “If I were planning a vacation, I might look somewhere else until the government gets their act together,” said John Heine, executive director of the Grizzly & Wolf Discovery Center in West Yellowstone. “Potentially our numbers could plummet because of the fear people have in losing money (with a closure).” Heine said he went through this once before, during the gover nment
shutdown in the 1990s. From his experience, a shutdown can actually be a short-term boon for towns like West Yellowstone. People who have already booked their hotels and flights will still come, but they will spend their time — and money — in town because they can’t get into the park. But if a long period of uncertainty is followed by a protracted shutdown, it could be devastating. West Yellowstone is readying for the April 15 opening of the park’s western entrance. The Grizzly & Wolf Discovery Center, an attraction that features live animals, exhibits and education programs, gets at least 90 percent of its business from visitors. It is anticipating visitor revenue of about $20,000 for April, compared to $241,000 in July, the center’s peak month. The center runs on a tight budget, meaning a loss even in the relatively lean month April would likely make it difficult to recover going into the summer and force Heine to look at possible program and job cuts, he said. In Gardiner, at the park’s northern entrance, Anna Holloway runs the Tumbleweed Café and Bookstore. Business is quiet now, and Holloway said she has a

would be catastrophic for her business and the 10 people she employs during the peak season, she said.
Repainting iconic Alamogordo symbol not an easy ‘A’
ALAMOGORDO (AP) — Some folks call it an outdated aviation symbol. Others term it an old-school representation of “fun” hazing among high school students. Whatever it used to be, many Alamogordo residents still view Alamogordo’s “A” as an icon overlooking the city. It is a beacon made of shale and limestone coated with white paint on the western slope of the Sacramento Mountains. The “A’’ received a muchneeded makeover recently when about 50 volunteers — mostly teenagers — trekked along the rocky, pock-marked trail leading up to the city’s symbolic capital letter and applied 120 gallons of white paint to it. R yan Ross for the past year spearheaded the effort to “Save the ‘A’, Restore the Tradition” and admits it all began out of boredom during a time when he was unemployed. He decided to

Municipal Court April 5 Judge Larry G. Loy Arraignment Reckless driving, immediate notice of accident and display of current valid registration plate — Seth Van Laningham, of 2804 N. Orchard Ave.; fined $402 and 5 days in jail - days suspended in lieu of 5 days
Services are pending at Ballard Funeral Home and Crematory for Diane Duran, 46, who passed away Wednesday, April 6, 2011, in Lubbock, Texas. A further announcement will be made once arrangements have been finalized.
“One day I posted a comment suggesting we repaint the ‘A.’ There was this outpouring of support from people saying, ‘Let’s do it.’ I began to wonder what I had asked for,” he said. The “A’’ was last painted in 2005 when members of Alamogordo High School’s 1985 graduation class ventured up the trail during a reunion and gave it a whitewash, Ross said. Ross said senior classes would paint the “A’’ as a rite of passage, but that stopped for unknown reasons. Some blame hazing, in which senior students would force freshmen to haul buckets of paint up the steep incline and spend all day painting the large letter. Others say early-day pilots flying into Alamogordo used the “A’’ as a marker to deter mine their approximate location. “As far as I can tell, it goes back to the 1960s or before,” he said. “It’s a symbol of Alamogordo that
has always been there.” Otero County historian David Townsend told the Daily News in a March 6 story painting the “A’’ was a senior class tradition when he arrived at Alamogordo High School as a teacher in the 1950s. Ross said several city youth groups immediately jumped at his restoration idea and offered their support. City Clerk Renee Cantin also helped, he said, by securing volunteers and equipment, including a city-owned van that transported volunteers. From there, a good pair hiking boots and stamina were the order of the day. Chris Rollerson of Alamogordo said it was the first time he had visited the site since 1981. “That was the last time I made it up this hill,” he said. “I’m still a spring chicken.” Rollerson arrived before dawn and stayed well into the after noon applying white paint. “We’ve been putting stones back that have slid out of place over the years,” he said. “Just trying to get it as straight as possible so we have something pretty to look at when we’re down in the valley.” Freshman MacKenzie Johnston also arrived at dawn to lend a hand. “I just thought I would come and help. I like hiking up here and thought it would be nice to have the ‘A’ look a little more white,” she said. “This has been really fun and I met some new people.” Philip Lewis, a lifelong resident of Alamogordo, said the experience was an education. “I came up here to help because I didn’t do it in high school. I wish I had, but now I’ve done it,” he said. “I was not aware that it was this rough up here. It’s been fun.” Fred Stevenson, a techni-

cal sergeant from Holloman Air Force Base, navigated the steep cliffs and jagged rocks at the base of the ‘A’ with relative ease. “We just wanted to do something for the town,” he said. “It’s an icon, it stands out and everyone sees it, so why not be a part of it?” For Air man 1st Class Ken Argenbright, it was a chance to enjoy the outdoors. “I’ve been hiking up here before, so I knew where this place was located,” he said. “It’s nice up here. It’s been a good experience and a lot of hard work. It’s actually been pretty relaxing. I get to enjoy the beautiful day.” Ross, a 1989 graduate of the high school, said the “A’’ always held a special place in his heart. He moved away from Alamogordo for a short time, and when he returned he had difficulty locating the signature symbol of the city because it had faded. “This was always a place for me to hang out when I was a teenager,” he said. “We’d ride our bikes as far as we could and come up here with our BB guns ... just hang out. It just didn’t look the same when I moved back.” With plenty of help from volunteers, civic groups and Alamogordo businesses, Ross said he is pleased with how the “A” now shines high above the city. “I’m glad that it actually happened instead of just talking about it,” he said. “Everyone should be proud of what they’ve done.” Ross doesn’t see a need to return to the site for two or three years, but hopes the tradition of painting the “A’’ won’t end with this effort. “I hope someone will help keep it alive,” Ross said. “If it has to be me, I’ll do it. I just don’t want to see the tradition die.”

DEAR ABBY: I’m the mother of two boys who are 12 and 13. The letter from “Terrified for My Niece in the Southwest” (Feb. 16) horrified me. The aunt who wrote the letter said her sister “bragged” about how popular her 14-year -old daughter is because she gives oral sex to the boys. Is this the kind of girl my sons are exposed to at school? I know kids are curious and experiment at this age, but it’s disturbing that the mother of this girl doesn’t see that her actions are dangerous and can lead to more serious sexual situations. If she were MY niece, I would speak up and let Mom know exactly how I felt in hopes that she would recognize how inappropriate her daughter’s actions are. Pregnancy can become a harsh reality to a parent who was blind to the seriousness of her child’s actions. YVETTE IN RANCHO SANTA MARGARITA, CALIF.

I then write on an index card what color I started with and how many drops of the dark color (name) I added. Nobody else has the same color of polish as me; I am unique in my color of nails.

CORRECTED NOTICE Southwestern Public Company (“SPS”), as required by the New Mexico Public Regulation Commission (“Commission”), is hereby giving notice to its customers of the following: 1. On February 28, 2011, Southwestern Public Company (“SPS”) filed its application requesting Commission approval for revised New Mexico retail electric rates pursuant to Advice Notice No. 235 and for other approvals and authorizations described in the Application. SPS is providing the following information concerning the application. 2. SPS’s rate case filing uses a future test period that extends from January 1, 2011 through December 31, 2011, which is adjusted for certain changes to occur in 2012 (“Test Year”). 3. SPS’s proposed Test Year fuel and non-fuel base rate revenue requirement is $299,245,883. This revenue requirement reflects: (a) for non-fuel base revenue, an increase of $19,926,063 over current non-fuel base revenue, or a 14.9% increase; (b) for fuel revenue, a decrease of $36,324,542 over current base fuel revenue; or (c) a net decrease in total fuel and non-fuel base revenue of $16,398,479, or 5.2%. In conjunction with this change in base rates, however, annual revenue credits of $36,324,542 passed through the SPS’s fuel and purchase power cost adjustment clause (“FPPCAC”) will stop. Thus, the net change in total revenue after base rates are changed and the revenue credit passed through the FPPCAC ceases is an increase of $19,926,063, or 6.9%. The proposed rate changes will affect all retail 4. customer classifications. 5. Listed below are the present and proposed rates for each customer class proposed by SPS. Present Rate
