Chaos in Cairo; stage set for successor

CAIRO (AP) — With protests raging, Egypt’s president named his intelligence chief as his first-ever vice president on Saturday, setting the stage for a successor as chaos engulfed the capital. Soldiers stood by — a few even joining the demonstrators — and the death toll from five days of anti-government fury rose sharply to 74. Saturday’s fast-moving developments across the north African nation marked a sharp tur ning point in President Hosni Mubarak’s three-decade rule of Egypt. Residents and shopkeep-


ers in affluent neighborhoods boarded up their houses and stores against looters, who roamed the streets with knives and sticks, stealing what they could and destroying cars, windows and street signs. Gunfire rang out in some neighborhoods. Tanks and armored personnel carriers fanned out across the city of 18 million, guarding key government buildings, and major tourist and archaeological sites. Among those singled out for special protection was the Egyptian Museum, home to some of the country’s most treasured antiq-

uities, and the Cabinet building. The military closed the pyramids on the outskirts of Cairo — Egypt’s premier tourist site. But soldiers made no moves against protesters, even after a curfew came and went and the crowds swelled in the streets, demanding an end to Mubarak’s rule and no handoff to the son he had been grooming to succeed him. “This is the revolution of people of all walks of life,” read black graffiti scrolled on one army tank in Tahrir Square. “Mubarak, take your son and leave,” it said.

Saturday’s Miss Roswell-Miss Chaves County scholarship pageant, a pageant on the Miss America circuit, featured more than four glammed up women in cosmetics and extravagant outfits. It was a competition that focused on leadership and service, and the breadth, depth and creativity of each and every competitor looking to hold the title of Miss Roswell and Miss Chaves County. “It’s about scholarship,” Desiree

Markham, for mer Miss Chaves County 2010 said. “It’s a lot all in one. It’s [also] about your personal platfor m and being able to talk about something that is important and really meaningful to you.”

Roswell women ages 17-24 competed in Saturday’s pageant at the Roswell Convention and Civic Center. Judging categories included interview, fitness, swimsuit and talent. The women were required to reach beyond their outer appearances, by engaging judges and audience members in conversation and through their various talents and service proposal platforms. The

Gov. Martinez wants death penalty reinstated

SANTA FE. (AP) — New Mexico’s new governor, a longtime prosecutor in Las Cruces, said some crimes deserve the ultimate punishment, and she wants the death penalty back on the state’s books. “When a monster rapes and murders a child or a criminal kills a police officer, the death penalty should be an option for the jury,” Gov. Susana Martinez, a Republican, said in her State of the State address to open the 2011 Legislature earlier this month. Some religious groups are opposing her effort, but organizations representing prosecutors and law enforcement officers say the death penalty is necessary. Former Gov. Bill Richardson, a Democrat, signed a measure two years ago abolishing New Mexico’s death penalty, citing flaws in how it was applied and saying the criminal justice system must be perfect if it’s going to put someone to death. With the repeal, New Mexico replaced lethal injection with life in prison without the possibility of parole, becoming one of 15 states without a death penalty. Republican Rep. Dennis Kintigh of Roswell, a former FBI agent, introduced the first attempt to reinstate the death penalty this year — a joint resolution that would put the question before voters as a state constitutional amendment. Kintigh said he’d vote to reinstate the death penalty if it comes before lawmakers, but that he believes voters should decide such a serious issue. Since New Mexico has no provision for referendums, an amendment is the only See MARTINEZ, Page A3

Russia identifies airport bomber as Caucasus man DAVID NOWAK ASSOCIATED PRESS

MOSCOW (AP) — The suicide bomber who killed 35 people at Moscow's busiest airport was deliberately targeting foreigners, investigators said Saturday, which would mark an ominous new tactic by separatist militants in souther n Russia if he was recruited by an Islamist terror cell. Federal investigators know the identity of the bomber, a 20-year -old native of the volatile Caucausus region, where Islamist insurgents have been battling for years for a breakaway state. But the country's top investigative body stopped short of naming him, fearing that it would compromise ongoing attempts to identify and arrest the master minds of the Domodedovo Airport attack on Jan. 24. The blast also wounded 180 people. There has been no claim of responsibility, but security analysts suspect Islamist separatists of organizing the bombing because of its magnitude and method. "It was no accident that

the terrorist act was carried out in the inter national arrivals hall," federal investigators said in a statement. "The terrorist act was aimed first and foremost at foreign citizens." The victims were mainly Russians, but also included one person each from Britain, Germany, Austria, Ukraine, Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan. The violence stemming from the predominantly Muslim Caucasus region originates from two bloody separatist wars in Chechnya in the past 15 years. Federal forces wiped out the large-scale resistance, driving the insurgency into the mountains and into neighboring provinces. The rebels seek an independent Caucasus emirate that adheres to Shariah law. Caucasus rebels have claimed responsibility for a number of deadly attacks over the years, including a double suicide bombing on the capital's subway system in March 2010 that killed 40 people. One of the subway stations hit was under the Federal Security Service headquarters in downtown Moscow. The service, the main successor to the feared Soviet KGB, is

known by its Russian language acronym, the FSB. This time, the terrorists are out to show that it's not just the Russian public who are defenseless, said Pavel Felgenhauer, an independent security analyst. "There is always a message," he said. "If the message with the metro bombings was to show the FSB that they are not out of reach, then the message here is that foreigners should keep away from Russia, it's a dangerous place. The point was to scare off foreigners, not to maybe kill them but to hit Russia's image, (and) its economy as an investment destination." "Looking at Medvedev's reaction, it seems that point got through," Felgenhauer said, referring to President Dmitry Medvedev, who postponed his trip to the World Economic Forum in Davos because of the blast. When he eventually arrived on Wednesday, Medvedev con-

demned the perpetrators and sternly defended Russia as an investment haven.

Rebels in the Caucausus mount regular attacks on police and security forces in the region, according to police reports. Human rights activists say their violence is provoked by a savage crackdown on peaceful civilians by authorities in the region, and hold Chechen President Ramzan Kadyrov and his feared private army to blame. Kadyrov, a former rebel himself until he switched sides and was subsequently installed by the Kremlin as president, denies being behind disappearances, torture and extra-judicial killings that rights activists say plague the region. The Caucasus hosts at least 100 ethnicities including Chechens, who resisted czarist conquest of the region for hundreds of years.

New Mexico prosecutors have said Province, McCluskey and Welch targeted the Haases at an Interstate 40 rest stop because they had grown weary of traveling and sleeping in their car and wanted the couple's camping trailer. Authorities said the Haases were taken to a remote ranch near Colonias, N.M., where they were shot and the trailer was set on fire. The Haases, both 61, were traveling to Pagosa Springs, Colo., for a camping trip. Province's first court hearing in Albuquerque on the murder and carjacking charges is on Wednesday.

KINGMAN, Ariz. (AP) — An inmate who escaped an Arizona prison last summer and went on a crime spree was taken to New Mexico on Saturday to face capital murder charges, the U.S. Marshals Service said. Tracy Province, 42, was flown from Kingman, Ariz., to Albuquerque. He was sentenced in Kingman on Friday to more than 38 years in prison on charges of escape, kidnapping, armed robbery, aggravated assault and weapons misconduct stemming from crimes in Arizona after his escape. The sentencing cleared the way for him to be sent to New Mexico to face the murder charges in the deaths of Gary and Linda Haas of Tecumseh, Okla. Authorities say Province, John McCluskey and Daniel Renwick escaped from a medium-security prison in Kingman on July 30. Authorities say McCluskey's fiancée and cousin, Casslyn Welch, helped the men by throwing cutting tools over the prison's perimeter fence, allowing them to flee into the desert. The escape sparked a nationwide hunt, and all four were recaptured within three weeks. Province, McCluskey and Welch all face capital murder and carjacking charges stemming from the Haas' killings.

way to do that. New Mexico executed nine men from 1933 until it abolished the death penalty. The state’s most recent execution in 2001 was its first since 1960. Capital punishment is more expensive than life without the possibility of parole, given the longer trials, additional lawyers and expert witnesses, added proceedings, drawn-out jury selections and prolonged appeals, opponents say. Life sentences without parole “can keep society safe, save money and focus on the victims instead of always focusing on the murderer,” said Vicki Elkey, executive director of the New Mexico Murder Victim Family Advocacy Project, which succeeded the New Mexico Coalition to Repeal the Death Penalty. The coalition lobbied against the death penalty for 12 years. It’s also not easy to define who’s for and against capital punishment, she said. “It’s not a RepublicanDemocrat, police-not police, victim-non-victim issue,” Elkey said. New Mexico’s death penalty was limited to specific murder cases, including those involving kidnapping; rape; killing police of ficers, prison guards or inmates; murder for hire and murder of a witness. Martinez’s office said she wants to reinstate that law. The New Mexico Conference of Churches, which worked for nearly two decades to repeal capital punishment, will fight its reinstatement, said interim director Jim Baird. The conference, which represents a broad section of Christian communities, issues statements only “when we can speak with one voice,” Baird said. “In the act of killing in the name of the state, we can speak with one voice because we strongly oppose this.” Roman Catholic Archbishop of Santa Fe

levy question will appear on the Lake Arthur ballot. The money would be used for school building maintenance, repairs and materials to be used within the facilities. The two mill levy would impose a property tax of $2 per each $1,000 of net taxable value of the property in the district. Michael Sheehan called the death penalty cruel and unnecessary and pointed out innocent people have been executed around the country. Reinstating the punishment, he said, would be a step backward. But the New Mexico Sheriffs’ and Police Association argues that capital punishment deters violence against police of ficers, jailers and prison guards. “We have had many interviews with the assailant who said they would have killed a cop had it not been for the potential of the death penalty,” said Jim Burleson, head of the association. The association and district attor neys had opposed the penalty’s repeal. Attorney General Gary King also believes the death penalty is necessary in some cases. He said someone who is already serving a life sentence won’t be deterred from killing a guard if the only penalty is another life sentence. King, who also opposed repeal, said the death penalty should be imposed only in narrow circumstances, including killing a police officer or prison guard. Bernalillo County District Attorney Kari Brandenburg, currently involved in a death penalty case that predates the repeal, worries whether New Mexico has the money to reinstate capital punishment. “We don’t have the money to hire attorneys to defend against the death penalty (for defendants),” she said. New Mexico residents are struggling with the issue because it’s not black and white, said who Brandenburg, acknowledged her own ambivalence. “New Mexico has had a very conservative approach to the death penalty, which is good,” she said. “It’s not about revenge. It’s about public safety and keeping people off the streets. ... The practical issue is can we afford to have the death penalty?”

second night, standing their ground in the main Tahrir Square in a resounding rejection of Mubarak’s attempt to hang onto power with promises of reform and a new government. Police protecting the Interior Ministry near the site opened fire at a funeral procession for a dead protester, possibly because it came too close to the force. Clashes broke out and at least two people were killed. A 43-year -old teacher, Rafaat Mubarak, said the appointment of the president’s intelligence chief and longtime confidant, Omar Suleiman, as vice president did not satisfy the protesters. “This is all nonsense. They will not fool us anymore. We want the head of the snake,” he said in the Mediterranean port city of Alexandria. “If he is appointed by Mubarak, then he is just one more member of the gang. We are not speaking about a branch in a tree, we are talking about the roots.” The crackdown on protesters has drawn harsh criticism from the Obama administration and even a threat Friday to reduce a $1.5 billion foreign aid program if Washington’s most important Arab ally escalates the use of force. Thousands of passengers were stranded at Cairo’s airport as flights were canceled or delayed, leaving them unable to leave because of a government-imposed curfew. Several Arab nations, meanwhile, moved to evacuate their citizens. The cancelations of flights and the arrival of several largely empty aircraft appeared to herald an ominous erosion of key tourism revenue. The protesters united in one overarching demand — Mubarak and his family must go. The movement is a culmination of years of simmering frustration over a government they see as corrupt, heavy-handed and neglectful of poverty. Egyptians were emboldened by the uprising in Tunisia — another North African Arab nation, and further buoyed by their success in defying the ban on gatherings. At the end of a long day of rioting and mass demonstrations Friday, Mubarak fired his Cabinet and promised reforms. But the demonstrators returned in force

again Saturday to demand a complete change of regime. The president appeared to have been preparing his son Gamal to succeed him, possibly as soon as presidential elections planned for later this year. However, there was significant public opposition to the hereditary succession. The appointment of Suleiman, 74, answers one of the most intriguing and enduring political questions in Egypt: Who will succeed 82-year-old Mubarak? Another question is whether his appointment will calm Egypt’s seething cities. Mubarak appointed Suleiman shortly after the U.S. said he needed to take concrete action to achieve “real reform.” Suleiman is well known and respected by American officials and has traveled to Washington many times. Before word that Mubarak had picked his first vice president, State Department spokesman P.J. Crowley said the U.S. wanted to see Mubarak fulfill his pledges of reform. “The Egyptian government can’t reshuffle the deck and then stand pat,” Crowley said on his Twitter account. “President Mubarak’s words pledging reform must be followed by action.” As the army presence expanded in Cairo Saturday, police largely disappeared from the streets — possibly because their presence seemed only to fuel protesters’ anger. Egyptian police are hated for their brutality. On Friday, 17 police stations throughout Cairo were torched, with protesters stealing firearms and ammunition and freeing some jailed suspects. They also burned dozens of police trucks in Cairo, Alexandria and Suez. On Saturday, protesters besieged a police station in the Giza neighborhood of Cairo, looted and pulled down Egyptian flags, then burned the building to the ground. There were no clashes reported between protesters and the military at all, and many in the crowds showered soldiers with affection. One army captain joined the demonstrators in Tahrir Square, who hoisted him on their shoulders while chanting slogans against Mubarak. The officer ripped apart a picture of the president. “We don’t want him! We will go after him!” demonstrators shouted. They decried looting and sabotage, saying: “Those who love Egypt should not sabotage Egypt!” Some 200 inmates escaped a jail on the outskirts of the city, starting a fire first to cover their breakout. Eight inmates were killed during the escape.

State government moving at snail’s pace A4 Sunday, January 30, 2011

SANTA FE — Our state capitol is moving at a snail’s pace so far this year. It took more than a week for House standing committees to be named. Almost three months after her election, Gov. Susana Martinez has not filled her Cabinet and some other top appointments. But not to worry. There are good reasons for both. After losing eight seats to Republicans, Democratic House Speaker Ben Lujan was faced with adjusting the make-up of every committee to reflect the nearly equal balance between the parties. Some of those decisions were tough. Loyal Democrats had to be removed from prestigious committees, such as Appropriations, Taxation and Judiciary. Several committees are equally balanced and with the departure from the Democratic Party by Rep. Andy Nunez, Democrats will be outnumbered on the House Transportation and Public Works Committee.




Martinez also started with a disadvantage. She won her office never having set foot in the Capitol Building. She had to start from scratch in statewide politics. She likely had very few people in mind for any office. To complicate matters further, the Legislature was deep into a study of restructuring state gover nment. With many departments, agencies and boards being considered for extinction, there isn’t much sense in filling such positions. Besides, who would want to quit a job to fill a government post with a dubious life expectancy? So Martinez has temporarily

Roswell Daily Record

continued a number of top officials from the previous administration until she sees what comes of the current legislative session. That means much of state government will be treading water for a few months. Further complicating the situation is the necessity of getting all Cabinet officials, plus some others, confirmed by the Senate. Not all of those confirmations will be easy. It is likely that by the session’s end on March 19, all confir mations will not be completed. That doesn’t mean that parts of state government will come to a halt. Martinez’s Cabinet secretaries can continue on an acting basis. During the administration of former Gov. Gary Johnson, some confirmations were delayed more than a year. State government is likely to continue to move slowly for another week or two until lawmakers realize the session is half over and they better get moving.

But don’t think of our citizen legislators as slackers. New Mexico has one of the shortest legislative sessions in the nation and the work gets done. It is human nature to have to pick up the pace at the end whether a session lasts a month or a year. If you come to visit the Legislature, a parking garage across the street west of the Capitol makes the walking much easier. For the first time in many years, gasoline prices did not drop the week the session started. Years ago, lawmakers became upset about Santa Fe’s eternally high-priced gasoline. So they asked the attorney general to investigate. Little came of the probe except that gas prices dropped every year when legislators were in town. The fact that gas prices haven’t dropped this year may be a sign that retail dealers expect the price of oil to continue increasing. It makes a trip to Santa Fe more expensive but it

is good news for the state’s general fund and permanent funds, which depend heavily on the oil and gas industry. In between debating extraneous issues, the Legislature does have an out-of-balance budget to create. How big a deficit do we have? Estimates vary between $200 million and $450 million. Indications are that the Legislature is figuring on about $200 million to cut and Martinez is using the high figure, claiming that the previous administration blind-sided her. But the governor’s proposed cuts so far are said to total less than $200 million plus some further tax breaks for the oil industry. Stay tuned to see what shakes out.

Mixed signals from Obama

The era of big government is not over quite yet, as judged by President Barack Obama’s State of the Union speech. Obama is striking a different strategy than the one deployed by President Bill Clinton after voters gave him a mid-term rebuke in 1994. Clinton got busy slashing spending and it contributed to a decade of historic growth and prosperity. Obama is taking more of a hybrid approach. Tuesday night he promised spending restraint and deficit reduction, and said some very encouraging things about fostering a healthier business climate. At the same time, he is pitching major new spending initiatives and only modest deficit reductions. At times, it was like watching a tug-ofwar, as the president first argued for more Keynesian stimulus, and then for more fiscal discipline. First, though, give Obama considerable credit for the tone of the speech. The president recaptured his eloquence on the campaign trail in urging cooperative governing and rallying the nation to unite to solve its problems. He wisely avoided the antagonistic flashes that marred last year’s address. And although his depiction of the pace of the recovery was overly exuberant, the country was ready for the president to do a little confidence building. Elements of his speech also will work to encourage a business community that has been waiting for a sign they have a friend in the White House. Obama proposes reducing corporate income tax rates, which at 35 percent stand among the highest in the world. He’ll do so, he says, by closing a myriad of tax loopholes adopted over the years to mitigate the impact of the burdensome tax rate. That’s a vital step to improving America’s competitiveness. He also repeated his pledge to get rid of rules and regulations that stifle economic growth, although he built into that promise enough loopholes to allow the federal bureaucracy to ignore it if it chooses. Still, this is a better direction for an administration that had been tagged as anti-business during its first two years. The contradictions in the speech, however, will have to be worked out during the upcoming budget process if this is truly to be the start of a new era for Obama. Specifically, the president committed to vast new spending to expand broadband access, criss-cross the country with highspeed rail lines and boost education performance. He calls these investments, because that’s a more palatable word than spending, but they will add to the budget deficit if not offset by cuts elsewhere. The five-year spending freeze Obama proposes will save about $40 billion a year, not nearly enough to provide the deficit reduction voters demanded in November, let alone allow funding of his new proposals. It’s a paltry sum when compared to the $1.1 trillion increase in the federal budget over the past four years. The additional round of stimulus spending proposed by the president is an improvement over the first round in that it is more directly targeted at research and development projects that may create jobs. But he is repeating the mistake of trying to pick winning industries, a skill in which government is lacking. Notable for its absence in the speech was a meaningful discussion of curbing entitlement programs. Social Security, Medicaid and Medicare are the big budget busters, and Obama should have used his platform to urge support for the recommendations of his deficit reduction commission. And the president did no favors to an economy hungry for certainty by revisiting the tax hike on higher income earners. The president says his priorities will be more jobs and smaller deficits. The best way to reach that goal is through policies that encourage the investment of the more than $2 trillion idling in the private sector, and make deep cuts in federal spending. His speech started him in that direction, but he’ll have to address its contradictions if he hopes to create the economic climate he promised Tuesday night. Guest Editorial The Detroit News

Another reason Roswell is known worldwide Where in the world is Roswell, N.M.? Although the answer is, “Tucked quietly in the high plains of southeast New Mexico,” the majority of the world’s population would certainly draw a blank if asked, and that’s not necessarily a bad thing. If we were to stop and consider all the cities that the world has to offer, it would boggle our minds. So let’s not do that. Instead, allow me to segue into today’s subject matter with a quick shot at global awareness. Most every community strives to distinguish itself from others, regardless of what part of the world they occupy. And they do so, in my estima-


DEAR DR. GOTT: I am writing in regards to your article that appeared in my newspaper on June 26, 2010. A counselor wrote to you asking about her husband’s habitual drinking habits. Your response to her was extremely accurate. Your description of the disease and its profound effects on a family was one of the best descriptions I have read outside of the literature that the AlAnon Family Groups publish. It is truly wonder ful to read such a straightforward, honest answer about alcoholism and its ef fects on the family in our local news-

Whether you travel to see pyramids, or beaches, or mountains, or even little green aliens ... the fact is, those communities that capture the attention of the world have accomplished something very special.

The world knows Roswell by our aliens. But the world also knows Roswell in a different light. And I wonder how many of our own friends and families know that we stand atop the world stage as the host community for the International Law Enforcement Academy. What an honor this program brings to our little corner of the world. For the past 10 years, we have welcomed law enforcement men and women from all

alcoholism, they are prone to go to great lengths to get the alcoholic to stop drinking, as your response suggests. That is when the family members become sick, too, from attempting to battle a disease over which they have no control. I am also encouraged by your response to try Al-Anon. There IS a solution for family members, and Al-Anon can provide a ray of hope to anyone who walks through the doors of a meeting. In addition to the education about alcoholism and the effects on family memSee GOTT, Page A5

over the world, as we hosted the best-of-the-best in international law enforcement personnel. Thousands of distinguished officials from Africa, South America, Europe, Asia, North America and beyond have converged in our proud community to learn about the elite techniques of law enforcement ... as well as to experience the flavor of hometown America. And year after year, as delegations come and go, a bit of who we are as a community goes with each of them, back to their respective hometowns ... and the story of Roswell spreads.

Today is Sunday, Jan. 30, the 30th day of 2011. There are 335 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight On Jan. 30, 1948, Indian political and spiritual leader Mohandas K. Gandhi, 78, was shot and killed in New Delhi by Nathuram Godse (neh-too-RAHM’ gahdSAY’), a Hindu extremist. (Godse and a coconspirator were later executed.) On this date In 1649, England’s King Charles I was beheaded. In 1882, the 32nd president of the United States, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, was born in Hyde Park, N.Y. In 1911, James White, an intellectually disabled black man who’d been convicted of rape for having sex with a 14-year-old white girl when he was 16, was publicly hanged in Bell County, Ky. Jazz trumpeter Roy Eldridge was born in Pittsburgh. In 1931, the Charles Chaplin feature “City Lights” had its world premiere in Los Angeles.

There is no question that this has been a very successful program. Since the inception, the U.S. State Department has been the sponsoring agency, New Mexico Tech has been the program facilitator and Roswell has opened its doors and shared its hospitality. What a great partnership it has been. As the world continues to evolve into an unknown future of terror and enhanced criminal activity, it’s comforting to know that nations around the world are diligently working together to improve the safety and well being of their citizens. Over the past several months, as the agreement between the State Department and New Mexico Tech comes to a close, many of our community leaders have worked hard to ensure that our participation in the program does not come to a close as well. For you see, any community that might be fortunate enough to host a program like ILEA receives a significant economic impact from its presence, and there are cities across this great nation that would love to be a host community. But there’s no place like Roswell. And if I could brag for just a moment, I’d brag on Commissioner Greg Nibert, Councilor Judy Stubbs, Bob Donnell, former Mayor Bill Owen and others who did exactly what they do best ... promote the place that we call home. But there’s more to the story of ILEARoswell. We are the perfect community for this program because of the day-today attention that we give to our international guests. ENMU-Roswell and New

Mexico Military Institute are great contributors to the needs of the delegates. Our retailers and restaurants provide quality service and friendly conversation. Individuals and families invite the delegates into their homes for food and fellowship, and our thanks go out to Debra Young, Yukie Ebarra, the McPherson family and the Douglas family, to name just a few. Surrounding communities like Carlsbad and Ruidoso share a bit of themselves as the delegates see the many sites of New Mexico. But the greatest asset that we bring to ILEA-Roswell, are those who call Roswell home. You are the primary reason that we will continue as the host community. Every time that you share a warm welcome, a friendly handshake, or a brief conversation with these men and women, you impact their lives and their impression of the United States. It’s amazing that from the comforts of our own small town, we are ambassadors to the world. We set the stage for how nations view America, and what an awesome privilege and responsibility that is. Thank you ... thank you for being a part of such a tremendous effort. In a perfect world, the next influx of delegates would be next week. However, in a not so perfect world, we will have to wait a few months before the red carpet once again welcomes visitors from around the world. In the meantime, we might continue to reflect on our place in the international spotlight and prepare ourselves to continue to do a good work ... for those communities that capture the attention of the world have accomplished something very special. Proudly, Del

bers, there are practical solutions to deal with the problems that come with the disease. As a member, I have seen miracles happen within the program. I have witnessed members transform their lives and live happy, fulfilled lives, whether the alcoholic is still drinking or not. Thank you for your response to the counselor. The power of an article can be far-reaching. I hope to see a family member who is still suffering from the effects of alcoholism show up at one of my Al-Anon meetings. Thank you. DEAR READER: Thank you for the kind remarks. As I am sure you know, alcoholism is a serious problem. An addiction to alcohol, certain behaviors, smoking, narcotics, illicit drugs, even gambling can have devastating consequences, not only to the user but also to the user’s family and friends. I don’t believe that the public is uneducated about alcoholism, simply undereducated. You are correct that there is a certain level of shame that goes along with addiction, and this shame often leads those who care to go to extreme lengths to cope with and even hide the problem, which only serves to complicate and worsen the situation. There is

In 1933, Adolf Hitler became chancellor of Germany. The first episode of the “Lone Ranger” radio program was broadcast on station WXYZ in Detroit. In 1961, President John F. Kennedy delivered his first State of the Union address before a joint session of Congress. Author, journalist and radio commentator Dorothy Thompson died in Lisbon, Portugal, at age 67. In 1964, the United States launched Ranger 6, an unmanned spacecraft carrying television cameras that crash-landed on the moon, but failed to send back images. In 1968, the Tet Offensive began during the Vietnam War as Communist forces launched surprise attacks against South Vietnamese provincial capitals. In 1972, 13 Roman Catholic civil rights marchers were shot to death by British soldiers in Norther n Ireland on what became known as “Bloody Sunday.” In 1981, an estimated two million New Yorkers turned out for a ticker-tape parade honoring the freed American hostages from Iran. no shame in having an addiction. It truly is a disease; however, it’s one that cannot be cured with pills and exercise. Treatment requires willpower and a desire to get better. It requires changing habits and behaviors, examination of feelings and emotions, and a great deal of hard work. It’s not easy, and for most, it requires making daily (even hourly, in the beginning) choices between what is easy (falling back into the addiction) and what is best (continuing to fight against it). The families of addicts must realize that no matter what they say or do, nothing will change until the addict is ready to make that choice. Covering up the problem and putting up a front doesn’t do any good for anyone involved. There is no shame in addiction, nor is there shame in getting help. There is shame, however, in shame.

A truth to live by: Life will never be fair A6 Sunday, January 30, 2011

Life isn’t fair. These are words I don’t like to report to you, but, like gravity, it is a concept we must accept as it is a constant that exists independent of anything we do or don’t do. From the day we are born to the day we pass away, life being unfair is something we must all learn to accept and to deal with. There are some things we can ch an g e, b u t t h e r e ar e ma n y things we cannot. Why is it some are born into families who have two excellent parents and others are born to a single parent with virtually no parenting skills? Why is it that some are born into families that are well to do economically and others ar e bor n into welfar e families? Some newborns have a greater chance of succeeding in t h is wo rl d t han o t h er s , n ot because of anything they did or didn’t do, but merely because of the family they were born into. It seems that life often begins unfair. T he n, on e ch i ld g r ow s u p raised by stable parents while another child is ping-ponged back and forth between parents who regularly bring other members of the opposite sex through t h e ir h om es, m a r r yi n g a n d divorcing and having one-night stands with others. Life isn’t fair. Some children lose a parent t o d e a th w h ile t h e y a r e st i l l young. Some children grow up in g h e tt o ar e a s , o t h er s i n upper -class neighborhoods. It




just isn’t fair. Then as adults, an unexpecte d d i s ea se o r a ca r a c cid en t takes spouses, parents, children, brothers and sisters away before their time. Others have family members who develop A l z h e im e r’ s a n d in st e ad of enjoying mom or dad in their later years, they have to struggle with a difficult relationship. Life isn’t fair. Some people win lotteries on their first or second try and their net worth increases tenfold overnight. Others buy tickets for a dozen years and win nothing. Life isn’t fair. In the Bible in the book of Matthew, chapter 20, verses 1 through 15 we are told about a landowner who hired men to work in his vineyard. He hired some in the early morning and promised to pay them a denarus (a usual day’s wages). He hired additional groups of men at 9 a.m., noon, 3 p.m. and 5 p.m. When evening came and it was time to pay the laborers, the l a n d ow n e r b eg a n b y p a yin g those who had just worked the last hour of the day first and then continued to pay the workers from those who had worked


Free speech

Dear Editor: This letter is in response to the editorial cartoon of Jan. 14, portraying “Dems” as terrorizing free speech. I have heard and read a number of allegations of a link between uncivil political rhetoric and the actions of Jared Loughner. Some of these allegations decry the rhetoric as

the shortest shifts through the ones who had worked a full day. T he lan do wn er p aid th e 5 p.m. laborers a full day’s wages as well as all the others who had worked in his vineyard that day, regardless of how long they h ad wor ked . L ea r n in g t h is, those who had worked hard all day grumbled to the landowner saying it isn’t fair that you paid those who only worked an hour a full day’s wages when we had to work all day in the heat to earn the same pay. Does this sound like something you or I may say? Sure. The landowner responded in ve rse 1 3, “ Fr i en d, I am not being unfair to you. Didn’t you agree to work for a denarius? Take your pay and go. I want to give the man who was hired last the same as I gave you. Don’t I have the right to do what I want with my own money? Or are you envious because I am generous?” This story spoken by Jesus and written by Matthew, one of the 12 apostles, basically sums up human nature. Life isn’t fair. S o wh at i f th e l at e lab or er s received more than they might have deserved, the landowner was fair to those who worked the full day and kept his promise to them by paying them a denarus. How much time do we spend in jealousy or envy of others? How often do we speak negat i ve ly abo ut ot h er s b eca use something good happened to

them and not us? You get the idea. Do we celebrate the fact that we got paid for a good day’s labor, or are we upset because someone else got paid the same for a fraction of the work? When we are blessed with good things that happen, are we grateful and appreciative, or are we angry because we deserved more or someone else deserved less? When life deals us a poor hand and our neighbor is given a good hand, do we celebrate with our neighbor? E ach of u s s ees t h e w or ld through our own eyes. We must understand that we are the only ones who see the world the way we do. We are a product of our past, of our history. But we can control how we conduct ourselves in the future. We must also understand that we can control what we think. We can think good things about ourselves, we can think good things about others. We are also able to think bad things about ourselves and others. Each one of us is accountable for what we think. Understand? We can live upset because life was fairer to another than it is to us. Or we can have an attitude of gratitude for what we h a ve r eg ar d less of th e good things that happen to another. The problem is that we measure ourselves too much in relationship to others. We should measure ourselves against ourselves. Me against me and you against you. If we quantified our

inflaming susceptible persons such as Mr. Loughner. Others are critical of this discourse as disrupting a reasoned debate of the issues and creating hostility. In the absence of evidence demonstrating an obsession of the part of Mr. Loughner with these “shock jocks,” I believe they had little, if any, influence on his actions. What I do see is a number of people exercising their first amendment rights. They do not appear to be against free speech. They are critical of hate speech.

potential with a number, if you can reach an 85 and I can only reach a 75, I need to help you reach an 85 as I seek to reach 75 myself. This concept would aid those with the mind set of “ wh at ever I am u n ab le t o ach ieve, n o on e els e sh ou ld either.” My challenge to you is first to accept the fact that life isn’t fair. T h is d oesn ’ t mean you don’t fight for what is fair, but it does mean that you must come t o g r i ps t h at g ood a n d b ad things will happen to you and ot h er s t h at a r e b eyon d you r control. Don’t lay in bed each night unable to sleep worrying about fairness. And second, when something good happens to another and not to you, celebrate with them and lift them up, it should be ab ou t t h em , n ot y ou . D on ’ t throw a pity party for yourself and allow anger to enter your world because life isn’t fair. You can con t r ol wh at you t h in k , your r esponse is truly up to you . A s is t h e c ase w it h t h e vin ey ar d wor k er s, if you get what you are promised, does it really matter what the landowner does with the others? Just a thought ...

They are critical of demonizing speech. They disagree with Limbaugh, Palin, O’Reilly, Beck and others of their ilk. They have the temerity to say they are wrong. No one has been arrested for speech. I have not heard of anyone calling for the inflammatory speech to be outlawed or made illegal. Keith Bell is wrong. He has that right in our society. Charles A. Berry Roswell

While the official start of spring is still weeks away, the sports fans’ of ficial spring kicked off Saturday when the NMMI Mens baseball team opened its season with a doubleheader against Otero Junior College. In the first game, the Rattlers won 7-1 and in the nightcap Otero won 93. Game 1 The first game was a pitchers duel as NMMI led 1-0 heading into the final inning. NMMI could have had a bigger lead, but it wasn’t able to take advantage of advantageous situations early. Bronco starting pitcher Javier Sanchez sat the Rattlers down in order to start

the game and in the home half of the first, NMMI had a chance to grab the early lead. Leadoff hitter Johnnie Garrett was hit by a pitch and then advanced to second on a balk. After a groundout by Joshua Loera, Garrett advanced to third on a wild pitch. NMMI was unable to capitalize, however, as Luis Maldonado and Jaime Vargas struck out to end the inning. The Broncos had another chance to score in the second, but were unable to push across a run. With two outs, NMMI’s Ullises Marrero singled up the middle, stole second and advanced to third on a passed ball, but was stranded when Neil Jaquez grounded out. The Broncos were able to put a run on the board in

the third when Robert Orona scored on a ground out by Maldonado. While NMMI had the lead, coach Bret Simmermacher knew his team should have been up more. “We lost the game in the first four innings of the game,” he said. “We had runners all over the bases with zero, one and two outs and we couldn’t put the ball in play. We were striking out and not playing situational baseball. We told them that they have to take care of situational baseball early in the game. You know, your first at bat of the game may end up being the most important.” In the top of the fourth, the Rattlers were poised to tie things up, but a nifty move by Sanchez swung momentum back in NMMI’s favor. Otero’s Aaron Sandoval

HONOLULU (AP) — After a week of practices about as stressful as a Hawaiian sunset, players shifted to Aloha Stadium for their final workouts before Sunday’s Pro Bowl. Workout, in this case, is a highly dubious description. The most work done in their brief on-field appearances on Saturday was signing autographs for the fans who showed up in the dazzling island sunshine and everyone involved seemed thrilled that this game is back in Hawaii. Even New England’s Bill Belichick, the AFC’s coach, departed from his dour reputation to smile a time or two. And there was no need for that hoodie in this weather. Fans with special permission to be on the field during practice far outnumbered any “working” media, and it was difficult to locate anyone actually participating in drills amid the throng, although there was the amusing sight of Arizona wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald working on the kickoff team, something he probably hasn’t done since junior high, if then. Peyton Manning paused from a casual chat with fellow AFC quarterback Philip Rivers to deadpan about the serious nature of the final pre-game preparation. “It’s a tough one,” he said. “We’re getting a lot done.”

hit a moon-shot to the wall in right field and ended up on third with a leadof f triple. During the next at bat, Sanchez feigned throwing home, but instead threw to third base and caught Sandoval sleeping. The Broncos were able to execute the run down and Sanchez sat down the next two batters to get out of the inning unscathed. Simmermacher said that the pick-of f move was something his team had

been practicing. “Our pitchers have been schooled to practice that move,” he said. “Everyone talks about left-hander and having a balk move to first base. Why can’t a righthander have a balk move to third base? It is a valuable tool and Javier has taken it and ran with it. “He has got the best move on the team and he worked with John David

ALBUQUERQUE (AP) — Tony Snell hit three big shots down the stretch. Before that, he did a nice defensive number against the nation’s top scorer. Snell, a freshman, scored a career-high 16 points and made three huge 3-pointers in the final five minutes, helping New Mexico beat No. 9 BYU 86-77 on Saturday. “I just tried to play as hard as I can,” Snell said. “Coach told me to be ready and shoot with confidence.” Snell also made things tough during the opening half for BYU’s standout scorer, Jimmer Fredette, who finished with 32 points but with Snell in his face had just five through the first 17 minutes.

MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) — Kim Clijsters believes she’s now earned the nickname she had for years in Australia. “I finally feel like you guys can call me ‘Aussie Kim’ because I won the title,” a teary Clijsters said after beating China’s Li Na 3-6, 6-3, 6-3 Satur day night to capture her first Australian Open. “It’s nice to finally get it this year.” Clijsters lost the 2004 Australian Open final to Justine Henin and lost four times in the semifinals. This was Clijsters’

fourth Grand Slam tournament championship, but the first apart from the U.S. Open. “T o win it in this way means a lot,” she told a TV interviewer after the match. “This one to me, is the one. When I think back on my childhood, I remember watching the Australian Open and seeing Monica Seles win many times. I think they used to go up into the stands. I remember her doing her speech there, and it was something that I was just amazed by. It

said the idea was to use Snell’s rangy 6-foot-7 frame to wear down Fredette. “Coach told me it was a big assignment for me,” Snell said. “He told me to use my length and maybe that would bother him a little bit, and I just did my best. He’s a great player. Oh, man. It was a hard assignment for me.” Kendall Williams, another New Mexico freshman, also had 16 points while Drew Gordon scored 15, Dairese See UPSET, Page B5

Super Bowl season validates Packers GM Thompson

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — If there ever was a time for Ted Thompson to break character and take a bow, it would be right now. Since taking over as the Green Bay Packers’ general manager in 2005, Thompson has been a popular target for fan criticism. His conservative approach to building a team through the draft wasn’t popular with those who wanted splashy bigname free agent signings. Then Thompson became the guy who traded Brett Favre. Now the Packers are preparing to face the Pittsburgh Steelers in the Super Bowl, Favre is gone — presumably for good — amid a cloud of injury and and embarrassment, Thompson’s approach looks like football genius. But Thompson prefers to work quietly behind the scenes and let others enjoy the spotlight, so you won’t catch him gloating to a quickly dwindling crowd of critics. “There’s a lot of Packers fans, and you’d like for all of them to think that the organization is being run well,” Thompson said recently. “But you can’t worry about that. You have to do your job. And quite frankly, I don’t speak on those things anymore. We’ve moved on.” So have Packers fans. As Aaron Rodgers blossoms into one of the NFL’s top quarterbacks, you’ll hardly hear anybody in Wisconsin pining for Favre to come back these days. It’s a dramatic shift since 2008, when Thompson

made the difficult decision to build around Rodgers instead of indulging yet another round of Favre’s dizzying indecision on retirement. In a rare moment of Internet civility, one fan website,, even posted an apology: “I’m not afraid to admit it. I was wrong. Congrats Ted.” Packers coach Mike applauded McCarthy Thompson for sticking to his beliefs when he resolved one of the most tumultuous times in franchise history by sending Favre to the New York Jets in 2008. “I think it truly shows the strength of Ted to stick to his guns, stay the course,” said McCarthy, who also played a key role in the decision. “We stayed with the plan. We made the decision based on what we felt was the best interests of the Green Bay Packers, and we never budged off of it. It wasn’t popular, and it wasn’t fun at times, but we felt it was the right decision. And I think why we’re standing here today talking about it proves it was the right decision.” T o McCarthy, it was another sign of Thompson’s steady personality. “He’s the same person every day,” McCarthy said. “He doesn’t make emotional decisions. Has a plan, sticks to his plan. Has the strength to stick to the plan even through the storms. ... He’s why this team is in the shape that it’s in and why the future looks so bright.”

PITTSBURGH (AP) — First round. First class. Successful drafts are a major reason why the Pittsburgh Steelers are going for their seventh Super Bowl title. They play the Green Bay Packers on Feb. 6 in Dallas. This is a team that’s been built mostly through the draft, and its top picks always seem to work out. Eight of Pittsburgh’s last 10

first-round choices are still on the team and each is a starter. One of the two players no longer with the Steelers is wide receiver Santonio Holmes, who was MVP of the team’s 2009 Super Bowl victory over Arizona. In order, the eight firstround picks are: Casey Hampton, Troy Polamalu, Ben Roethlisberger, Heath Miller, Lawrence Timmons, Rashard Mendenhall, Ziggy

After playing college football at SMU, Thompson went on to play 10 years as a backup linebacker with the Houston Oilers. Thompson generally speaks in self-deprecating terms about his playing career — although he is proud that as an emergency kicker, he once converted four extra points in a game. Now 58, Thompson is all

business today, spending much of his time on the road scouting players. “I don’t know if there’s another GM that’s on the road as much as T ed,” McCarthy said. “He’s out there every week.” While choosing Rodgers over Favre is a career defining moment for Thompson, the job he and his staf f have done this season is more impressive.

Going into the Super Bowl, the Packers list 16 players on injured reserve. The Packers wouldn’t be where they are today unless Thompson and his staff had unearthed players such as running back James Starks, a sixthround pick; nickel cornerback Sam Shields, an undrafted free agent; and outside linebacker Erik Walden, who was out of

football when the Packers signed him in midseason. “What’s impressive is when new guys come in and step in and play and do well and our coaches take them in and they’re not nervous about it,” Thompson said. “Because sometimes that doesn’t work too well. It’s like, ‘Oh, woe is me.’ And that’s not the way our guys approach it.”

Hood and Maurkice Pouncey. Kevin Colbert is the team’s director of football operations. He’s the man responsible for the last 11 drafts, and he has quite an impressive track record. Colbert prefers to keep a low profile, so others have to sing his praises. “You have to give credit to the people upstairs,” said nose tackle Chris Hoke, who signed as an undrafted free agent in 2001. “They do a great job evaluating. If there’s a questionable character about anybody, they’re not going to take him. They go after quality guys, guys with good character, guys they know are going to work hard. They do their due diligence and you have to credit that to their success.” Colbert chose Hampton with the 19th overall pick in his second draft in 2001. Two years later, he made arguably the best move by any football executive in this century. Colbert traded up from the 27th pick to No. 16 to select Polamalu, who only became one of the all-time great strong safeties. Polamalu is a six-time Pro Bowl pick, three-time All-Pro and a candidate for Defensive Player of the Year honors this season. A year later, Roethlisberger was selected with the 11th overall pick. Two quar-

terbacks — Eli Manning and Philip Rivers — went ahead of Big Ben. He already has twice as many championship rings and is one win away from becoming just the fifth QB with three on his hand. In 2008, Colbert took Mendenhall at No. 28, even though Willie Parker was coming off a 1,300-yard season. Mendenhall was the fourth running back chosen behind Darren McFadden, Jonathan Stewart and Felix Jones. Only Stewart has more yards rushing, but he’s played 10 more games. Mendenhall missed 12 games his rookie year because of a shoulder injury. Plucking Pro Bowl-caliber players in the draft is a tough science. First-round picks that turn out to be busts cost a team big money, and making those mistakes can ruin careers among front-office staffers. The Steelers rarely get to pick among the blue-chip, can’t-miss prospects in the top 5 or even the top 10. Roethlisberger and linebacker Lawrence Timmons — the 15th pick in the 2007 draft — are the only players chosen by Colbert in the top 15. That can be an advantage, though. “At the top of the draft, you have to keep people around because they are

making too much money so that’s the negative side,” third-string QB Charlie Batch said. “Regardless of how a guy pans out, you can’t get rid of him in three years. It’s not something you have to worry about with this team, developing guys because you have so much money invested in them. “Here, because you are drafting in the mid to lower round, you have a chance to study guys because you’re not looking for a guy to make an immediate impact and be that special player as if you would with a guy you take in the top 5 or top 10.” The Steelers aren’t usually in a position where they need to draft a player that has to start right away, so they can take time and have patience with their rookies. Most important for a family-owned organization that prides itself on having an exemplary image is drafting players with strong character. The Rooneys struggled with the decision to keep Roethlisberger after he was suspended for four games to start this season for violating the league’s personal conduct policy. “They evaluate the players off the field as well and they choose good people and when they make a decision, it’s weighted out and measured with all the goods and bads and if they see something in a player to make

them take him in the first round, that means they like what they see,” said Hood, the defensive end selected No. 32 overall in ’09. “If you have off-the-field issues that can interfere with what you are doing on the field, it’s not going to be good. What’s going to happen when you put money in a young man’s pocket and how magnified would it be if they are put in a different situation and how would they react. You get good people off the field, you get good players on the field.” Holmes was made an example after he provoked the Steelers one too many times. Holmes caught the touchdown pass that secured Pittsburgh’s sixth Super Bowl championship, but he was traded to the New York Jets for a fifthround pick last April after a series of off-field infractions embarrassed the organization. “Character issues wipes you off the board,” Batch said. The Steelers don’t just get it right in the first round. They draft well up and down the board. They have 37 players currently on their roster who were draftees, including three guys who left after a few seasons and returned through free agency. Of those, 35 were picked under Colbert’s watch.

MOBILE, Ala. (AP) — Christian Ponder heads to the pros on a high note, after all. And he got a little help from a college rival. The Florida State quarterback threw two touchdown passes, including a clinching 23yarder to TCU’s Jeremy Kerley in the South’s 24-10 Senior Bowl victory over the North on Saturday. Ponder completed 7 of 13 passes for 132 yards, including several big ones to Leonard Hankerson of Miami, and the final TD with 3:04 left. Ponder was looking for a happier transition to an NFL career after missing the ACC championship game with an elbow injury and most of the Seminoles’ bowl game thanks to a concussion. Ponder led scoring drives on the South’s first two possessions and put on the finishing touches after the North rallied from a 17-0 deficit. “I thought I definitely ended on a good note and hopefully my draft status has gone up a little bit,” said Ponder, the game’s MVP. Hankerson had 100 yards on five catches, including an 18-yard touchdown and a 48-yarder to set up another score — both from Ponder. He also caught a 14-yarder on the clinching drive, capped by Kerley’s second catch. “It was a little double-move,” Ponder said. “(Kerley) was wide-open, ran a great route. He won by alignment. They had outside leverage on him, he cut inside and scored.” Washington quarterback Jake Locker, likely among the first passers drafted, led a touchdown drive but also had offensive linemen save him by falling on two fumbles for the North in an uneven performance. Ponder was the first FSU quarterback to beat Miami twice since Gary Huff in 1971 and 1972, but relied heavily on a former Hurricanes standout from the outset.

Haas, Mickelson tied for lead; Tiger falters

SAN DIEGO (AP) — The way Phil Mickelson likes to play golf, he didn’t have much fun Saturday at Torrey Pines. Based on how he needs to play the South Course, Phil was thrilled. Mickelson gave up on his swashbuckling style by playing it safe in the Farmers Insurance Open, making eight pars and a birdie on the back nine for a 4-under 68 that gave him a share of the lead with Bill Haas. “This course doesn’t reward you for taking on any challenge,� Mickelson said. “Any my more conservative approach into the greens, albeit boring, has led me to be on top of the leaderboard.� He was joined by Haas, who kept one shot ahead of Mickelson for most of the back nine until his wedge hopped hard on the firm green and went just over the back on the par-5 18th. He missed a 4-foot par putt and had to settle for a 1-under 71. They were at 12-under 204, a stroke ahead of Hunter Mahan and Bubba Watson, who each made eagle on the 18th. Tiger Woods, who has not lost at Torrey Pines in seven years, was nowhere to be found. His start to a new season brought out a familiar result. Just like so much last year, Woods goes into a

final round out of contention on a course where he once dominated. Woods made bogey from the second fairway with a wedge in his hand, and his day didn’t improve. He shot a 2-over 74, ending his streak of 21 straight rounds at par or better on the South Course in a tour event. “I did not play well at all today,� said Woods, who was eight shots behind. “It was a struggle all day, and I finally found something at 16. But 15 holes already had gone by, so that was pretty frustrating.� Mickelson’s frustrations are entirely different, only at least he felt like he was winning the battle. Torrey Pines always felt like home to Mickelson, who grew up in San Diego playing this public gem along the Pacific bluffs. He won the Buick Invitational three times, the last title coming 10 years ago. And then Rees Jones came in to revamp the South Course to get ready for the U.S. Open in 2008. Since then, Mickelson has not finished better than fourth, and he has criticized Jones for changing the nature of Torrey. Mickelson, whose reputation has been built on taking on risks, decided to go a different route. “I love playing aggressive,� he said. “I think people want to see birdies and they want to see bogeys. They want to

see us attacking holes trying to get it close. And this course just doesn’t reward you for taking any risk. In fact, it penalizes you. That’s why I’ve kind of steadily worked my way up without too many mistakes.� Even with his longtime nemesis out of the way, Mickelson doesn’t see an easy path to winning. Mahan and Watson each had 69 and were at 11under 205. Another shot back was Anthony Kim, showing signs of turning his game around. Kim escaped with only a bogey on the 15th after an adventure through the eucalyptus trees, and birdied the 18th for a 71. John Daly, who pulled within one shot of the lead early in the third round, fell apart with a string of bogeys and shot 76. Mickelson made only one birdie on the par 5s, and one birdie on the back nine, although it was a dandy. With a breeze in his face, he hit 4-iron with a slight cut just in front of the green and saw it roll 6 feet away to the front flag. Haas was paying attention to that one, a sign of what he faces in the final round. “It was a shot that I don’t have,� he said. “And if I did have it, I wouldn’t try it.� He is satisfied with his own game, and Mickelson is equally impressed, saying Haas has a “simple, beauti-

EVANSTON, Ill. (AP) — No one could have blamed Thad Matta for letting out a sigh of relief. Top-ranked Ohio State’s coach expected a dif ficult time against Northwestern, and that’s exactly what the unbeaten Buckeyes got Saturday night. They also found a way to capture their 22nd straight victory, thanks to a late

steal from veteran David Lighty and a tie-breaking free throw from freshman star Jared Sullinger to pull out a 58-57 victory over the short-handed and determined Wildcats. “We’re going to celebrate our wins,� Matta said. “What an incredible basketball game. I think we had some spurts, but give Northwestern credit. They

got a rhythm going.� Once again it was Sullinger coming through for the Buckeyes. Northwestern had a chance to take the lead, but Lighty stole a pass near the basket with 17 seconds to go. And the Buckeyes then worked the ball into the 6foot-9, 280-pound Sullinger. He was double-teamed throughout the game and in this instance, once he got the ball to go up near the basket, he was fouled. With Northwestern’s student section trying to distract him with waves and screams, he hit the rim with his first attempt and swished the second. “That’s what I want. If they double me or guard me one-on-one, it’s going to be good for us. Because I can kick it out,� Sullinger said. After three timeouts, Northwester n got a long attempt from Drew Crawford that hit the backboard. “It was very physical down there. I thought Jared kept his composure and handled himself really well,� Matta added. “I knew we’d get a pretty good look. ... He’s hit some big shots and made some big free throws.� Sullinger finished with 21 points and Aaron Craft had 13 points for Ohio State. Leading by only two at the half, Ohio State (22-0, 9-0 Big Ten) pulled out to a 13-point lead in the second

ful swing� with good touch around the greens. Haas didn’t make too many mistakes, and pulled ahead with two good birdies. With the tee back in U.S. Open territory on the 13th, making it play over 600 yards, Haas nearly got home with a 3-wood that set up and easy up-and-down birdie. All that kept him out of the lead was a wedge that bounced over the firm 18th green into the rough. Woods started the third round only five shots

behind, and that was as close as he got. In what has become a troublesome theme for Woods this week, the wedge is what held him back. From just over 100 yards in the fairway, he dumped a wedge into a bunker and left himself no shot, blasting out to 20 feet for bogey. That was followed by a three-putt bogey, and a bunker -tobunker bogey on the fifth hole. He picked up birdies on the par 5s on the front nine,

and played 1 over the rest of the way. When he was in the fairway with a short iron or a wedge, he never gave himself many looks at birdie. The star of his group was Jhonattan Vegas, the Venezuela rookie coming off a playoff win at the Hope. He made his first meeting with Woods seem like an ordinary round. With some good par saves and a two-putt birdie at the end, he wound up beating Woods by five shots and still has a chance to win the tournament.

half with a 14-4 run But Northwestern, playing without leading scorer John Shurna because of a concussion, came back behind senior guard Michael Thompson, who led the Wildcats with 16 points — 13 in the second half. Thompson’s 3-pointer with 3:51 left capped a 217 run as the Wildcats took a 55-54 lead and the crowd at Welsh-R yan Arena erupted. “I stayed confident throughout,� Thompson said, looking to the rest of the season. “There is a lot to take away from this game.� Ohio State’s Jon Diebler — No. 5 all-time in the Big Ten in 3-pointers made — hit one for his first basket of the game to put the Buckeyes right back in front 57-55. Thompson then sailed through the lane and the 5foot-10 guard floated the ball into the basket for a tie with 1:31 left. After an Ohio State turnover and then a foul, Northwestern retained possession and tried to set up a go-ahead shot. But Lighty foiled it. “It’s discouraging, disappointing,� Northwester n coach Bill Carmody said. “Because you want to get the last shot in that situation. Or a shot. And we did not.�

18th straight home win SAN ANTONIO (AP) — Manu Ginobili scored 22 points and the San Antonio Spurs became the NBA’s first 40-game winner, beating the Houston Rockets 108-95 on Saturday night. Richard Jefferson added 18 points to help the Spurs win their 18th in a row at home. But it was San Antonio’s last game at the AT&T Center for three weeks with the Spurs embarking on their annual Rodeo Road Trip starting Tuesday. The NBA-best Spurs (40-7) will play nine straight on the road heading into the All-Star game, in which Spurs coach Gregg Popovich will direct the West squad. Luis Scola led the Rockets with 23 points and 10 rebounds. Houston has lost four of six. Tim Duncan, in jeopardy of missing the AllStar game for the first time in his career, had 12 points and seven rebounds as every Spurs starter was in double figures. Fans didn’t vote in Duncan as an All-Star starter for the first time in 11 seasons, and he must wait this week to see whether coaches vote

him in as a reserve. DeJuan Blair had 14 points and 12 rebounds, his eighth double-double this season. Tony Parker added 17 points and George Hill had 14. Kyle Lowry had 15 points for the Rockets, who faded late a night after nearly rallying from a 25-point deficit in a loss at Dallas. Houston’s road trip won’t get any easier: the Rockets head to Los Angeles on Tuesday to play the Lakers, then finish another back-to-back Wednesday at Utah. Kevin Martin and Chuck Hayes added 10 apiece for Houston. Houston trailed just 76-71 after the third quarter before being buried by a barrage of 3s. The Spurs went 5-for-8 behind the 3-point line the fourth, including Ginobili sinking two with a close hand in his face both times. Hill’s 3-pointer with 7:32 left capped a 7-0 Spurs run and stretched the lead to double-digits for good. Three months into the season, the Spurs are already just 10 wins shy of matching their 50-win total from a season ago.

(Gonzales) there and they called it on their own and got out of a jam.” Again in the bottom of the fourth, NMMI had an opportunity to increase its lead, but weren’t able to advance the runners. Gonzales started the Bronco fourth with a double and Brian Moneghan reached base when Otero’s catcher couldn’t hold on to a third strike. Marrero then struck out and Gonzales was picked off, killing any chance for a big inning for NMMI.

Gary had 14 points and 10 assists and Phillip McDonald added 11 points for the Lobos (15-7, 3-4 Mountain West), who ended BYU’s 10-game winning streak three days after the Cougars knocked off No. 4 San Diego State. Fredette shot 12 of 26 from the field, including a 6-of-9 performance from 3-point range. But Snell did the defensive work early before Gary took the assignment in the second half, bumping Fredette and making him work to get open. “Dairese Gary is a tough-minded kid,” Fredette said. “He’s going to battle. They did a good job. They did the same things that a lot of teams have done, just trying to be physical.”

On Sunday, Andy Murray hopes to win his first major and end an almost 75-year dr ought for British men at the majors. He meets No. 3 Novak Djokovic in Sunday’s final. Djokovic leads their headto-heads 4-3, but has lost the last three. Djokovic is the favorite and won in Australia in 2008 — the last time neither No. 1 Rafael Nadal nor No. 2 Roger Federer was in the final. Clijsters didn’t win her first major until 2005 — after she’d lost four finals. All the while, the Australian public regarded her as one of their own. And not only because she was once engaged to Lleyton Hewitt, the Australian who won two Grand Slam titles and was ranked No. 1 before Federer began his run. Clijsters is laid back and resilient, and the fans in Melbourne noticed. “In the past year people have been so supportive,” she said. “They have been amazing and I r eally appreciate it. I always felt bad that I (didn’t) give something back — once I got to the final and lost to Justine — and now I feel maybe worthy to be ‘Aussie Kim.’” With no Aussies making it past the third round at Melbourne Park, Clijsters clearly was a popular choice at Melbourne Park. She had said that 2011 would be her last full season on tour. Now, the 27year-old Belgian is already saying she’d like to defend her Australian title and possibly play at the London Olympics. Clijsters’ daughter Jada was on court when her mother collected the 2009 U.S. Open trophy — in her thir d tour nament back fr om a 2½-year br eak from the tour to get married and have a child. On Saturday night, Jada was in the players’ lounge, running and jumping into the arms of her father and uncle. Clijsters started convincingly, winning the first eight points for a 2-0 lead. Then Li rallied. She got her forehand working and fir ed winners with her

The score remained 1-0 until the top of the seventh, when Otero exploded for seven runs. Sandoval once again led off an inning with a big hit as he doubled to start off the Rattler seventh. Sandoval advanced to third on a single by Michael Rosario and scored on a single by Greg Mendoza. Otero took the lead for good when Rosario scored on a wild throw of f of a bunt by Moses Molina and after the Rattlers had taken a 7-1, NMMI never threatened in its last at bat. Despite being responsible for three runs in the final inning, SimmermachBrandon Davies scored 15 and Noah Hartsock had 10 for the Cougars (20-2, 6-1). New Mexico’s fans were charged up for BYU’s final visit to The Pit for the foreseeable future, now that the Cougars are leaving the Mountain West next season. They were able to enjoy this one by rushing the court afterward, capping a raucous afternoon. It was the highest ranked team the Lobos took out at home since a 77-74 win over No. 3 Utah in 1998. It also marked the first time New Mexico has won three straight over BYU in 11 years. The atmosphere was so intense that seven rows of bench seating collapsed in the student section. No injuries were reported. New Mexico facilities director Scott Dotson said the benches apparently broke because students were two-handed backhand. Clijsters looked unsettled, dropping serve four straight times. She then decided to mix it up after Li won the first set and took a 3-2 lead in the second. That’s when Li’s game started to fold. Perhaps the pressure of being the first Chinese in a Grand Slam final was getting to her. Li r eached the Australian semifinals last year, taking eventual champion Serena Williams to two tiebreak sets. She rallied from 0-5 down in the first set to win the Sydney International final over Clijsters in a warmup tour nament two weeks ago. This time was clearly different. Clijsters sensed Li was getting upset with Chinese spectators late in the second set. In the third, Li asked chair umpire Alison Lang to intervene, saying: “Can you tell the Chinese, don’t teach me how to play tennis?” Lang asked the crowd for quiet — twice. It didn’t work. Li became increasingly rattled. After she held for 3-2 in the second set, Clijsters upped the ante, winning the next thr ee games to regain control. In the thir d set, Clijsters broke to lead 4-1, and the match was all but over. Li was not sure to what extent her excellent showing in Australia registered at home. China's official broadcaster said 15 million watched the live broadcast of the final. Li said that was hardly more than Australia, a nation of 22 million. “T ens of millions is nothing. Over 80 percent of the people in Australia watch tennis; we can’t compete,” she said. Li is the first Chinese to win a WTA Tour title and the first to enter the top 10. Still, she does not see herself as a trailblazer. “My character is not suitable for it,” she said. “I just do the best I can. I hope Chinese tennis can gr ow faster, and I hope mor e people can get involved. It’s like a pyramid, more people playing, and you can achieve higher on the pyramid’s top.”

Game 2 Things continued to go

Otero’s way in the second game as they jumped on NMMI early. After a scoreless first inning, the Rattlers scored four runs in the second, thanks to some patience and clutch hitting. With two outs and the bases loaded, thanks to a walk, single and hit batsmen, Sandoval plated a run with a walk, giving Otero a 1-0 lead. Leandro Perez Nunez followed that with a basesclearing triple that increased the Rattler lead to 4-0 Otero tacked on two more runs in the third inning to take a 6-0 lead. NMMI started to chip

jumping on them. “The Pit is always a very, very emotional place to play,” Fredette said. “It’s very loud in here. The fans are very passionate about Lobo basketball. We’ve been in a lot of tough places this year, a lot of sellouts, but this is a great place to play.” The Cougars had everything in control after Fredette’s 3-pointer pushed their lead to 53-40 with 14:36 remaining but the Lobos charged back with a 10-0 run, fueled by an aggressive defense. During that burst, Fredette was mugged on a drive to the basket but New Mexico came away with the ball and Gary, who moments earlier had scored inside, swished a 3pointer to make it 53-48. Then Gary found Chad Adams for a layup that cut the margin to 53-50 with 12:02 to go. Snell scored on a reverse

layup to make it 53-52 at the 11:21 mark. From there, it was close until the Lobos took a 70-67 lead with 4:50 to play after the New Mexico freshmen got hot — Williams and Snell each made a 3-pointer and Williams added a driving layup. Alford said he went with a four -guard lineup to push the ball at BYU. “But that’s scary because they like uptempo. They can score,” Alford said. “The last 10 minutes, we finally made shots and they didn’t. We made some free throws and they missed some. We made key defensive stops down the stretch. That’s what you’ve got to be able to do.” The Lobos also made 9 of 11 from the field over the last 9:02, including 5 of 6 on 3-pointers. Fredette was as entertaining as ever, but his shooting touch started to

er was pleased with how Sanchez pitched. “Javier pitched well enough to win the game,” Simmermacher said. “We should have been up 7-0 heading into the top half of the seventh inning and then they are playing under pressure. Instead, it’s a one to nothing game and they still feel like they have a chance to win the game. Javier pitched his rear end off. We just have to play situational baseball and put the ball in play and score runs early in the game to put pressure on the other team.”


evaporate in the closing minutes, and the Lobos weren’t finished. Snell hit two 3-pointers to cap a 103 burst over a threeminute span to put New Mexico up 80-70 with 2:02 to go. “We’ve seen this coming all along with Tony,” Alford said. “His whole thing is being assertive and having enough confidence in himself that he can do it. We see it in practice. That’s why his minutes have been going up.” Fredette came in leading the nation with a 27.4point scoring average, and he was fresh off a 43-point effort in BYU’s win over San Diego State. In his previous four games, Fredette had averaged an astonishing 38.2 points while shooting 54.8 percent from 3-point range. “He’s a beast,” Gary said. “What can you say? Some of the shots he

made, I was like, ‘Wow. Did he just make that in my face?’ A player like that, you have to live and die defending him one on one. If he makes big shots, you have to go to the other end and stay poised.” This time, it took 17 minutes for Fredette to find a rhythm. With New Mexico fans booing every time he touched the ball and Snell waving his long arms, Fredette made just two of his first five shots until he scored seven straight over a 1-minute span late in the first half. “We wanted to put some length on him, and Tony’s got some great length,” Alford said. “We made him put up some dif ficult shots. I thought hopefully it wore him down a little bit, and we tried to go at him at the other end, make sure he was engaged defensively as much as he was offensively.”

They aren’t going to make every call. “That didn’t cost us the game by no means, but you’ve got somewhat of a chance if you are down three runs instead of six going into the bottom of the seventh. I felt like if we get that call, we could have changed the whole complexion of that last inning. Sometimes you don’t get those calls and Otero took advantage. They took advantage all day long.”

We threw a strike and it wasn’t called a strike, which gave them a base. Then a wild pitch moves him to second and we walk

B6 Sunday, January 30, 2011 OBITUARIES

Floyd Alvin “Abb” Ferguson

Floyd Alvin "Abb" Ferguson passed away peacefully on Sunday afternoon, Jan. 23, 2011, at the age of 101. Abb was born on a small farm near Pickwick, Texas, the second child of Jim and Nannie Ferguson. In 1915, the young family traveled to New Mexico by covered wagon in search of a better life. After wintering in the Palo Duro Canyon, near Amarillo, they laid claim to a small homestead near Elida, where they lived for the next 12 years. These were hard years for the family with constant drought and failure to discover any ground water on the property. At age 16, Abb decided he needed to leave home in order to find work and try to send money back to help support his parents and siblings. His first job was as a hand for the Four Sixes Ranch in northwest Texas where he spent a year helping to build a fence from Panhandle to Borger, Texas. During this time, Abb lear ned to box and competed in local traveling carnivals. He was able to earn extra money to send home by boxing threeround fights with the carnival “tough guys.” (Abb's own words). When the ranch work ended, Abb returned to New Mexico, taking whatever jobs he could find. He supplemented his income by trapping coyotes and wolves and selling their furs to mail order companies back east. In 1933, Abb joined the Conservation Civilian Corps. After basic training at Fort Bliss, Texas, his unit went to work excavating the Greyhound Lake between Portales and Clovis. They cleared forests near Santa Fe, and mined sandstone from the Caprock. He was honorably discharged in 1935 with four dollars to retur n home. Abb's life soon changed dramatically when he was introduced to Barbara Carter, the daughter of a Portales grocer, and friend of his younger sisters. They married in 1936, and Abb remained completely devoted to her until her death in 1993. It was time to settle

OBITUARIES down, and so Abb taught himself auto mechanics and welding. He opened his own auto shop in Portales, doing body work and auto repairs. On weekends, Abb and Barbara would pack up the car and take their two young children, Floyd and Gerald, camping and fishing, either at Conchas or Fort Sumner lakes. These camping trips went on for years until the boys left home, but began all over again when grandchildren, Kirk, Greg and Lee, were old enough to accompany them. When Abb retired, he and Barbara flew out to Jakarta, Indonesia, by way of Hong Kong to visit Floyd and his family. A three week visit turned into three months. They kept detailed diaries of the trip, and took many slides and photos which they later shared with friends and clubs back home. It was the trip of their lifetime. In 1986, Barbara and Abb moved from Portales to Roswell to be closer to Floyd and Susan. Each year, Abb would grow a huge vegetable garden. He canned tomatoes and apples and stored bushels of onions. He enjoyed collecting the pecans which fell from his trees and feeding the guinea hens that would come by to visit him each day. Abb loved to play the guitar and the fiddle. He enjoyed painting, leather work and silversmithing. His grandchildren adored him, and were always ready to listen to his stories about life on the homestead. This next paragraph is taken verbatim from an essay written in 1998 by his grandson, Lee, for his American History and Literature class when he was a student at NMMI: "In conclusion, throughout his life Abb Ferguson showed how his individual spirit enabled him to survive through a time period that threatened the entire nation. By always working hard and never giving up, Abb was able to find work, support his family, and keep himself fed and provided for as well. He possessed that inner strength that drives some people to go on when all others around them are giving up.” Abb Ferguson is survived by his son, Floyd; daughter -in-law Susan; grandchildren, Kirk, Greg and his wife, Lloana, and Lee and his wife, Catherine; and great-grandchildren, Vanessa, Oscar, Mookie and Lane. The family is especially grateful to the staff at Sunset Villa Care Center who cared for “Pop” with love and gentleness in his last years.

Zoe Allred

Graveside Services for Zoe Allred, 101, are scheduled for 11 a.m., Monday, Jan. 31, 2011, at South Park Cemetery, with memorial services to follow at 11:30 a.m., at LaGrone Funeral Chapel. Pastor Matt Brooks of First Baptist Church will officiate. Zoe passed away Jan. 27, 2011. She was bor n Zonell Weatherby in Hillsboro, Texas, on Sept. 24, 1909, to Gethron and Maude Weatherby. Her father owned and operated a farm in the beautiful hill country south of Dallas and her paternal grandfather was the first sherif f of Hill County, Texas. She grew up in Hillsboro and often rode to school with her older brother on his pony. She graduated from Hillsboro High School, attended one year at Hillsboro Junior College and then went on to attend Baylor University. She shared many recollections of her growing up in Hillsboro with her family, one of the most memorable being the day a young pilot named Charles Lindberg landed his airplane in the vacant field across from her parents’ home. In 1929, Zoe married her lifetime sweetheart, H.F. (Hank) Allred, whom she met when they both attended junior college. They moved to South Carolina where he was attending Fur man University on a football scholarship. Upon his graduation, they returned to Texas to begin his career as a football coach, teacher, and later, school administrator — and hers as a devoted wife, mother to three children, and Sunday School teacher. Zoe was renowned as an eloquent public speaker, dedicated Sunday school teacher and church worker, storyteller and writer. She was a longtime member of the Roswell Story League, served as that group’s president, and had several of her own writings published

in the Story League’s national publication. She was also awarded first honorable mention in a national short story contest with her “Mary’s Christmas.” Zoe always had a love of travel, and she and Hank visited all but two of the contiguous United States during their many trips. In retirement they toured England, Ger many, Belgium, France and Italy. Preceding Zoe to heaven are her parents, her husband, her two older brothers and a grandson. Her survivors include her son, Don Allred, of Colorado Springs, Colo., her daughter, Pat Smith and her husband, Warren, of Chandler, Ariz., and her daughter, Zoe Ann Milner and her husband, Wayne, of Roswell. Also surviving are her five grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren. Memorial contributions may be made to the Genesis Project, First Baptist Church, 500 N. Pennsylvania Ave., in Roswell, N.M., 88201. Condolences can be made at www.lagronefuneralchapels .com. Arrangements are under the direction of LaGrone Funeral Chapel.

C. W. “Bill “Tarter

Bill Tarter, 80, passed away on Thursday, Jan. 27, 2011, at a local hospital. A memorial service will be held at 10 a.m., Monday Jan. 31, 2011, at First United Methodist Church in Roswell. Rev. Gorton Smith and Rev. Archie Echols will officiate. Bill was a loving husband, special big brother, adoring dad, and a “Pappa” that will forever be in the hearts of his grandchildren. He was a wonderful uncle and father -in-law who had a way of making you feel like a special part of the family. We will miss his unique humor and witty remarks, such as “Pardon me while I roll my eyes.” As soon as he met someone, it wasn’t long before he gave them a quirky nickname. He could often be seen on the tennis courts, riding his bicycle, or walking his beloved dog, Daisy (the little dip). Bill was born on Nov. 12, 1930, in Snyder, Texas, to C. W. and Roy Carmichael

Roswell Daily Record Tarter. He married Mary Beth Morgan in Big Spring, Texas, on Sept. 1, 1950. Bill was a graduate of McMurry College in Abilene, Texas, and later received his master’s degree from ENMU in Portales. He served in the U. S. Coast Guard for four years. Bill was an educator spending most of his time at New Mexico Military Institute, where he was the swim coach, athletic director, taught physical education, bicycling, scuba diving and kayaking. In his own words,”the fun stuff.” Bill touched and influenced numerous young people’s lives — many that have remained in touch through the years. Bill was an Eagle Scout and a member of the Order of the Arrow. He was a professional in Boy Scouting for 13 years, camp director at Wehinahpay, Aquatics Camp director in Carlsbad, director of the Buf falo Trails Scout Ranch in the Davis Mountains in Texas, and served on the National Jamboree Aquatics staff. Bill was an active member of First United Methodist Church for 45 years. He was a past member of Kiwanis, Optimist Club, and a current member of the Roswell Elks Lodge 969. He served as past president of the N.M. Association of Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance. He volunteered at the Red Cross as a water safety instructor. For several years, he played tennis in the Senior Olympics. In addition to his wife, Mary Beth, Bill is survived by his sons, Curt Tarter and his wife, Sue, of Roswell, Steve Tarter and his wife, Dorothy, of Roswell, daughter Tamara Fresquez and her husband, Ken, of Roswell; grandchildren: Tashina Lilley and her husband, Tim, of Midland, Texas, Dylan Tarter and his wife, Alex, of Lubbock, Texas, Alexandra Fresquez and Elizabeth Fresquez, both of Roswell; and his sister, Joan Wood, and her husband, Jerry, of Abilene, Texas. Bill Tarter was an incredible human being and monumental figure in our lives. He will be sorely missed on this Earth, but the stars will certainly shine brighter in the heavens above. The family requests that donations be made to the Cowboy Bell Scholarship Fund through the First United Methodist Church, 200 N. Pennsylvania Ave., Roswell, N.M., 88201.

Ted Van Winkle

Ted passed away Jan. 27, 2011, in Lubbock, Texas. A funeral service is scheduled for 10 a.m., Wednesday, Feb. 2, 2011, at Ballard Funeral Home Chapel.

Pallbearers will be Kenny Van Winkle, Johnny Van Winkle and Coby Fox. God saw he was getting tired And a cure was not to be. So He put His ar ms around him And whispered, “Come with Me.” With tearful eyes we watched him suffer And saw him fade away. Although we loved him dearly, We could not make him stay. A golden heart stopped beating, Hard working hands to rest. God broke our hearts to prove to us He only takes the best. - Author unknown.

Michael Zamora

Michael Anthony Zamora, 56, of Roswell, entered into eternal rest Jan. 20, 2011. A memorial service is scheduled for 2 p.m., Jan. 31, 2011, at St. John’s Catholic Church in Roswell. Fr. Juan Antonio Gutierrez O.F.M. will officiate. Mike was born Jan. 8, 1955, in Roswell. His grandparents, Vidal S. and Rita B. Zamora; parents, Grace and Encelmo; brothers: Francisco Trujillo, Paul W. Zamora; uncles: Alberto Zamora, Roman Zamora, Ernesto Flores, Raymond T rujillo; and aunt, Fer n Zamora, have all preceded him in death.

Mike attended school in Roswell and graduated from Goddard High School in 1973 where he was a wrestler and football player. After graduation he worked at Glovers Packing Co., and then moved on to work at TMC Inc., Hastings, and the Roswell Daily Record. Mike relocated to Amarillo in May 2007, and was employed by JBS/Swift Packing Co. Mike was among the first to establish playing softball for Glovers Packing Co, thereafter playing for Leo’s Upholstery. Being a former wrestler and football player, Mike desired the sport of contact and was among the first in Roswell to play rugby for the Pecos Valley Diamondbacks. All who knew Mike recognized he was an avid Dallas Cowboy fan through his memorabilia collection. Mike was very well known for his smile, sense of humor, calmness and his fondness of music, especially Santana. His enjoyment for baking and cooking was a skill he shared by explaining the process of each ingredient. With much enthusiasm, the study of astronomy held a special place in his heart as he would talk about how he and his grandson, Gage, spent hours looking through the telescope and binoculars.

Table, wine turn up on now-famous Miami sandbar

MIAMI (AP) — First, a baby grand piano mysteriously showed up on a Miami sandbar. A day after it was removed, a small table with two chairs, place settings, a bottle of wine and a chef statue appeared on the now-famous strip of sand. The latest prank has officials worried the sandbar could become a target for more mischief and they are warning such activity is illegal. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission says anyone caught leaving items on the sandbar a few hundred yards from shore will be arrested. A 16-year-old art student admitted that he put the piano on the sandbar in Biscayne Bay as part of an art project, and a crew removed it Thursday. The table for two has also been taken down.

Comic David Frye, known for Nixon impression, dies

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Comic David Frye, whose impressions of Presidents Richard Nixon, L yndon Johnson and other prominent political figures vaulted him to popularity in the 1960s and 1970s, has died in Las Vegas, his family confirmed Saturday. He was 77. Frye died at his home Monday of cardiopulmonary arrest, Clark County Coroner Mike Murphy

said. Frye’s sister, Ruth Welch of Boynton Beach, Fla., said he was a born comic genius who wrote his own material and began by imitating neighbors in Brooklyn, N.Y., where they grew up. “He had an eye for people’s movements and an ear for their voices,” Welch told The Associated Press on Saturday. “He could

really get down people’s mannerisms and intonations.” Among other venues, Frye performed at colleges and nightclubs across the country as well as on television programs such as the “Ed Sullivan Show” and “The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson.” He reached the height of his popularity doing exaggerated

impressions of Nixon, with his shoulders hunched and face bowed down. He also devoted several albums to Nixon before Nixon resigned as president in 1974 amid the Watergate scandal. Born David Shapiro in 1934 in Brooklyn, Frye also imitated such political and entertainment figures as Hubert Humphrey, George Wallace, William F. Buck-

Mo. film producers alarmed by recommended cuts

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Leaders of Missouri’s film production industry are warning that proposals to eliminate state incentives for movie productions might convince out-of-state filmmakers to go elsewhere, and may have already cost the state a $30 million film project in the St. Louis area. The move comes as a Missouri-made film received an Oscar nomination for best picture for the second year in a row. On Tuesday, the Ozarks-based “Winter’s Bone,” was nominated for best picture, actress, supporting actor and adapted screenplay. “Up in the Air”, filmed partly in St. Louis, was nominated last year. But as Missouri struggles with a difficult budget, Democratic Gov. Jay Nixon has recommended eliminating funds for the Missouri Film Office, which works as a liaison between out-ofstate filmmakers and local professionals and locations. And in December, a bipartisan commission that considered all of the state’s 61 tax credit programs recommended elimination of a $4.5 million film production tax credit. The commission said that the film credit “serves too narrow of an industry and fails to provide a positive return on investment to the state.” Film production professionals argue that with more than 40 states offering film tax credits, any state

that doesn’t will be out of the running, The Kansas City Star reported. “The deal today is that without tax credits, you’re not a player,” said Jerry Jones, who leads the Missouri Film Office “We would not have had any feature films shot here in the last 10 years without these financial incentives. It’s just the nature of the beast.” Jones said he worked with the makers of “Winter’s Bone” for four years before filming began, and the deal was clinched by the $259,000 in tax credits the state offered the film, which had a production budget of $2 million. Promoters of film production point out that moviemaking employs local residents for such roles as film crew members, drivers and extras. And people involved in the films spend money on hotels, catering and materials for set construction. The incentive program allows qualifying out-of-state filmmakers to claim Missouri tax credits for money paid to local vendors, cast and crew. The state apparently has already lost out on a $20 million comedy, “Fun Size,” which “Up in the Air” producer Michael Beugg wanted to shoot this spring in St. Louis. Kim Tucci of the St. Louis Film Office said it would have had a $30 million economic impact. Nixon approved $1 million in tax credits for the pro-

duction, but Beugg has said he’ll look at other states that offer better deals. The Star reported that the frontrunner is thought to be Louisiana, one of 15 states that don’t cap the amount of tax credits for out-of-state film production. Detractors of the film tax credits call them “millions for Hollywood millionaires.” And some resent the way film producers play states against each other to get the best deals. But State Sen. Jason Crowell, a Cape Girardeau Republican, said the tax credit commission’s recommendation was “a complete joke.” “They recommended eliminating $4.5 million in film tax credits but don’t mention low income housing or historic preservation tax credits that amount to hundreds of millions of dollars. That’s like devoting resources to putting out a bush on fire and ignoring the house that’s burning down.” Determining the actual economic benefit of a filmmaking tax credit is difficult because most economic impact formulas are designed for long-term industries, rather than movie productions that are short-lived, Jones said. But Pearce said that it doesn’t matter that most film production jobs are

Roswell Daily Record

short-term because tax credits “help ensure that there’s a film industry here so that when big projects do come, we’ve got the infrastructure to handle them.” The campaign to keep the tax credits has started. The Missouri Motion Media Association, an umbrella organization of the state’s film professionals, last month hired a lobbyist to plead its case in Jefferson City. Association founder Lorah Steiner of Columbia said the goal was to not only to protect the film tax credit, but to create a new one to encourage development of new communication technology. “More and more of us are consuming on computers or iPhones or iPads the sort of content that formerly you could get only on TV,” Steiner said. “With those new platforms comes a demand for more content, content that is provided by film professionals. Investing in film keeps those skill sets in Missouri. At the same time, we need incentives to bring those new technologies here.” On Tuesday, the association will hold its third annual legislative day in Jefferson City, when filmmakers from Missouri will work to educate lawmakers on their industry.

The Roswell Chamber of Commerce helps recruit, retain people and businesses in Roswell


Roswell Chamber of Commerce has been at the forefront of the promotion of Roswell businesses, tourism and the community for 93 years. ”The main purpose of the Roswell Chamber of Commerce is business and trying to recruit individuals to come to Roswell ... and to retain the people and businesses that are already here,” said Dorrie Faubus-McCarty, Roswell Chamber of Commerce executive director. The chamber helps uphold community business retention by “encouraging activities that bring people to Roswell” and working with businesses to get the word out about their products and services. They also serve as a resource to tourists and new members of the community that are embarking on the city for the first time, Faubus-McCarty said. “Most visitors, as soon as they come into the city, visit the chamber and ask, ‘What motel do you suggest I stay at? Do you have a golf course here?’” FaubusMcCarty said. ”We can answer those questions.” During the year, the chamber has several events and programs available to its members for the promotion of their businesses. According to Faubus-McCarty, such events help chamber members network and spread awareness about their business. Networking opportunities include Business After Hours, Character Counts!, Hike it Spike it, Leadership Roswell and Rise with Roswell. The chamber also has a number of different memberships for individuals and businesses that wish to join its membership team. Anyone from retired individuals to small businesses with few employees, to large corporations with hundreds, can become a member. Memberships are available for financial institutions, government agencies, hospitals, hotels, individuals, non-profit organizations and utility companies. Chamber members also have the option to become champion and diamond level members. “Without our members we have nothing,” Faubus-McCarty said.

“That’s probably the area where we need more concentration and the most concentration on is ‘How do we bring the people that are not members of the Chamber of Commerce in the Chamber of Commerce?’” Faubus-McCarty also pointed out a little-known, but huge advantage to becoming a member of the chamber. “The membership is 97 percent tax deductible,” she said. Through the chamber’s membership program, businesses have many opportunities available to them. Benefits include advertisement in the chamber’s monthly newsletter, Redcoat ribbon-cutting ceremonies for all new members and the use of the chamber office’s conference room. Other benefits include business listings in Roswell Magazine, discounts at chamber member businesses, invitations to all Association of Commerce and Industry of New Mexico functions, retiree recruitment and tourism promotion, among other things. The chamber also has several committees that help organize chamber affairs and events. They include the budget committee, by-laws, policy, mission statement committee, legislative committee, membership committee, nominating committee, special programs and events committee and website and newsletter committees. The chamber’s 21 board members, who come from diverse business backgrounds, sit on each of the various committees. “Every board member serves on at least one committee,” FaubusMcCarty said. “Some board members serve on two or three committees, depending on what their expertise is.” By seeking “to promote businesses’ prosperity by assisting business development and fostering community pride and spirit,” the Roswell Chamber of Commerce helps create avenues for economic growth in the community through networking and the inclusion of businesses in community activities and affairs. “I can’t imagine a city without a chamber of commerce,” FaubusMcCarty said.

Withholding dessert won’t change child’s behavior Q: We have a 7-year-old daughter who has started stealing sweets from the kitchen. This is new behavior, and we’re at a loss about discipline for her. She’s already lost all of her dessert privileges. What else can we do? JULI: One of the things that may be complicating your response to your daughter’s sweet tooth is that there are really two different parenting issues to deal with. The more obvious issue is your concern about your daughter’s diet. It’s natural for kids to crave sugary snacks. At 7, your daughter doesn’t have the self-control or maturity to limit her intake of unhealthy food. I wouldn’t overreact to her desire to eat sweets. Food can easily become a control issue, which can become a precursor for disordered eating in the future. Just be sure that you are modeling moderation in your own diet. The more serious issue involving your daughter’s behavior is trust. Sneaking is a form of deception. That’s a big deal. Rather than scolding your daughter about the sweets, I would talk seriously with her about trust in your relationship. Explain to her that if she wants something to eat, all she has to do is ask. Even though you may sometimes say “no” when she asks for a doughnut right before dinner, assure her that you will be sensitive to her needs. Instead of disciplining her behavior with no dessert, which emphasizes the food issue, consider a consequence that has more to do with building trust in your relation-

** ** ** Q: Can you suggest some ways I can connect with my daughter? It’s one of my goals for the new year. She has a good relationship with her mom because they’re interested in the same “girl stuff.” But she’s just about to reach the teen years, and I want her to have a strong bond with her dad, too, especially before she starts dating. JIM: I can’t think of a more worthwhile new year’s resolution! Generally speaking, the most effective thing you can do to strengthen ties with your daughter is to make time for her — in both quality and quantity. According to my friend, Dr. Kevin Leman, the bond fathers develop with their daughters during times of real conversation and connection can pay huge dividends. This is especially true for girls in the “tween” years.

Kitchen clutter on ‘Creative Living’

Information on eliminating kitchen clutter, reinventing yourself, and making a pillow headboard will be the featured topics on “Creative Living” on Tuesday, Feb. 1, at 9:30 p.m., and on Thursday, Feb. 3, at noon. All times are Mountain. Kathryn Porter is a book author and speaker who has coined a phrase she calls “clutternomics.” She’ll tell ways to tackle that clutter that accumulates in the kitchen drawers, under cabinets and even in the pantry and refrigerator. She lives in Colorado Springs, Colo. Author and professional speaker Peter Fogel will talk about reinventing yourself as he relates stories and strategies of people 40 or older who have done just that. Fogel talks a lot about the importance of humor in our lives — for more peace and tranquility. He’s from Delray Beach, Fla. Judy Novella is with Fairfield Processing Corp. in Danbury, Conn., and she will show how to make a pillow headboard and easy throw pillows using patterns you can download on the internet. Infor mation on making plaster mosaic frames and machine appliqué will be the featured topics on “Creative Living” on Tuesday, Feb. 1, at

noon and on Saturday, Feb. 5, at 2 p.m. All times are Mountain. Author and designer Kristin Peck will show how easy it is to make plaster mosaic frames. She also has ideas for ways to use and decorate the home with this type of artwork. She lives in Virginia Beach, Va. Patsy Shields is with Sulky of America, and she will demonstrate various machine appliqué techniques, including satin stitch, blanket stitch, twin needle and dimensional appliqué. Shields is from Sellersburg, Ind. Kitchen: From chaos to clean The kitchen is one of those spaces where we tend to accumulate huge volumes of items we never use. We collect vast quantities of mugs, dishes, souvenir glasses, food, pots and pans, serving platters, odd utensils and plastic containers with missing lids and rarely have enough storage space to keep them all. The first step is to analyze your own kitchen. Take a good look around. What else do you see? Disorganized cabinets complement overstuf fed junk drawers. The space between the ceiling and upper cabinets is topped with a hodge-podge of decorations and kitchen supplies. The

linoleum floor is sticky and there are debris pockets under the table. Yikes! Where do we start? Maybe your kitchen isn’t as bad as this, but regardless of the caliber of the mess, we begin at the same starting point. It’s called the “kitchen strategy.” The kitchen strategy • Begin with the trash • Clear flat surfaces • Attack the dishes • Clean the refrigerator and other appliances • Thin out the pantry • Clean the floor Give your entire kitchen the eye! Inspect your work. Did you miss anything? Evaluate your organizing. What works? What doesn’t work? What do you want to change? Plan to experiment to see which organizing systems work best for you. Investigate what motivates you to stay on top of things. Learn the strategies and products that make cleaning easiest for you. “Creative Living” is produced and hosted by Sheryl Borden. The show is carried by more than 118 PBS stations in the United States, Canada, Guam and Puerto Rico and is distributed by Westlink, Albuquerque.

Leman advises that dads with daughters in this age group date them on a regular basis. Showing your daughter that she’s a high priority is essential for many reasons. For one thing, it will help her seek out men who will respect her later in life. Affirming your daughter’s femininity and treating her special says to her, “Honey, seek out someone who will treat you right.” In other words, if you can demonstrate for your daughter what a true gentleman is like — someone who honors her, respects her and values her — she’ll be more likely to gravitate toward men like that when she enters the dating world. On a regular basis, make an effort to take your daughter out to dinner, a movie, a round of miniature golf — or whatever interests her. I know it’s tough, especially when you’re likely working full time and you also need to make room on your calendar to date your wife. But it’s so important. The investment you make in your daughter now will impact her for the rest of her life. ** ** ** Jim Daly is president of Focus on the Family, host of the Focus on the Family radio program, and a husband and father of two.

Keep the pet or paramour? Many say pet

LEANNE ITALIE ASSOCIATED PRESS NEW YORK (AP) — Your sweetheart or your pet. Which would you dump if one had to go? Most current pet owners said they would hold on to their spouse or significant other (84 percent), but a sizable 14 percent picked their pet, according to an poll. Put Sally Roland, 53, of Omaha, Neb., down in the dog-first column. “I’m divorced, so that might explain it,” she joked. The unmarried, like Roland, are more apt to choose their pet over their mate — 25 percent among unmarried pet owners versus 8 percent among the married. Count Fidel Martinez, 30, of Akron, Ohio, as forever loyal to Killer. That’s his mix-breed, 100-pound rescue dog. “I would absolutely give up my girlfriend for him,” Martinez said. “I know it sounds insane but I’ve had numerous relationships with women. My dog has never let me down.” For the record: Martinez and Killer have been together for seven years. Martinez and his girlfriend have been together for four. The two-legged pair have no immediate plans to cohabitate, he said, but she does like the dog a lot. Women are far more likely than men to say the human-pet choice would be a tough one (40 percent among women compared with 26 percent among men). Both genders were equally likely to go with their spouse or significant other, according to the poll conducted by GfK Roper Public Affairs and Corporate Communications. There was also no difference between dog and cat owners: 35 percent of each said the choice would be a hard one and more than eight in 10 would choose their spouse.

This Jan. 23 photo shows Dave Rosenthal, left, and daughter Jackie, 12, with Roxy, one of their new dogs, at their home in Missouri City, Texas. The Rosenthal's last dog, Princess, escaped from their yard numerous times and started nipping at kids. Princess went back to the shelter after a year.

Urban dwellers (47 percent) are more likely to say they’d have a difficult time choosing than did suburbanites (35 percent) or rural residents (25 percent). Giving up a pet for any reason can be really tough — unless you are the owners of Princess the canine escape artist. David Rosenthal and his family in Missouri City, Texas, were ready with what they considered an ideal fenced backyard when they welcomed the 2-yearold American Eskimo from a shelter. Then things went from pretty good to not at all. “She kept getting away,” he said. “She’d dig underneath the fence, sneak out through every little crack. It would usually take about an hour or so to corral her.” Even worse, the 49-yearold Rosenthal discovered the hard way that the bushy sago palm plants in the backyard were poison-

ous to dogs (and humans, too). Princess sampled them and nearly died. T reatment cost about $2,000. “Plus she was nipping at kids,” said Rosenthal, who has three. “We were told it was friendly to kids.” So off Princess went, back to the shelter after a year. “It was sad but we knew there was already somebody there to adopt her.” The family now has two other rescue dogs. About six in 10 adults (57 percent) have had to give up a pet at some point in their lives, with current pet owners (64 percent) a bit more likely to have done so. The most common reasons had to do with the pet’s health: 69 percent said their pet was too sick to live on, 52 percent too sick to be cared for at home. But there are other reasons as well, including about one in 10 (9 percent) who, like Rosenthal, said

their animal was too dangerous to keep.

At Davos, men outnumber women by about 6 to 1 Roswell Daily Record

DAVOS, Switzerland (AP) — Research shows that investing in women is good business and some companies have taken significant steps to increase their female staff, especially at the top — but at the world’s premier economic gathering, men still outnumber women by a ratio of about six to one. Still, the World Economic Forum is making progress — not only in tackling the gap between men and women appearing on several panels but in producing an index ranking 134 countries on their success in eliminating inequality and establishing a group of 50 influential men and women to focus on ways for women to crack the glass ceiling, especially in business. Responding to a suggestion from this Global Gender Parity Group, the forum in April 2010 asked its 100 major business members to include at least one woman in its delegation to Davos. The forum’s founder Klaus Schwab said the response was full agreement, which has more than doubled the number of women from those companies. This has also helped to

Regulators shut banks in Colo, NM, Okla, Wis

WASHINGTON (AP) — Regulators on Friday closed banks in Colorado, New Mexico, Oklahoma and Wisconsin, lifting to 11 the number of bank failures in 2011 following last year’s toll of 157 taken down by the weak economy and piles of soured loans. The Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. took over the banks: First Community Bank, based in Taos, N.M, with $2.3 billion in assets; FirsT ier Bank, based in Louisville, Colo., with $781.5 million in assets; First State Bank of Camargo, Okla., with $43.5 million in assets; and Evergreen State Bank, based in Stoughton, Wis., with $246.5 million in assets. Minneapolis-based U.S. Bank agreed to assume the assets and deposits of First Community Bank. Bank 7, based in Oklahoma City, is acquiring the assets and deposits of First State Bank. McFarland State Bank of McFarland, Wis., is acquiring those of Evergreen State Bank. The FDIC was unable to find a buyer for FirsT ier Bank, and it approved the payout of the bank’s insured deposits. The failure of First Community Bank is expected to cost the deposit insurance fund $260 million. The failure of FirsT ier Bank is expected to cost $242.6 million; that of First State Bank, $20.1 million; and Evergreen State Bank, $22.8 million. The 157 bank closures nationwide last year topped the 140 shuttered in 2009. It was the most in a year since the savings-and-loan crisis two decades ago. The FDIC has said that 2010 likely will be the peak for bank failures. Already this year the pace of closures has slowed. By this time last year, regulators had closed 15 banks.

increase the overall percentage of women at the annual meeting of more than 2,500 leaders from business, government and the media from 9 percent in 2001 to more than 16 percent this year. But, says former Chilean president Michelle Bachelet, who now heads UN Women — the new agency promoting the advancement of women in all areas including the private sector — there’s still a long way to go to get out the message to companies that diversity will improve their understanding, their strategic thinking and their productivity. After a meeting Friday of the Global Gender Parity Group, Laura Tyson, a business professor at the University of California at Berkeley, said that over the past five years she has seen a growing body of well-researched evidence that there are “strong biases that prevent the effective utilization of female talent.” “So we have to understand those biases and arrange frameworks to get around them” including setting specific targets and measuring progress on a regular basis, she said. J. Frank Brown, dean of

INSEAD, one of the world’s largest graduate schools of business with campuses in France, Singapore and Abu Dhabi who chaired the meeting, said since the group was established three years ago he has seen “tremendous progress” including a major commitment by the forum and businesses “being much more open and sharing and collaborating” on what is working to promote women and what isn’t. Sharon Allen, chair man of Deloitte United States, wrote in a new report by the company entitled “The Gender Dividend: Making the business case for investing in women” that in the U.S., women’s purchasing power is in excess of $5 trillion and they represent nearly half of all shareholders. “It would seem to make sense, therefore, that businesses would invest in developing women as workers, executives, and leaders,” she said. “But impressive results and sound logic have yet to fully take hold in many parts of the world, including the United States. The advancement of women pales in proportion to their numbers.”

Undersecretary General, UN Women, New York, Michelle Bachelet speaks at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, Friday.

Allen said culture and custom are cited as reasons, but she stressed that when businesses and organizations have invested in women “the results have been both profound and dramatic.” The report cites research from the United States and Britain showing that when companies increase the number of women in

senior management and on their boards, their economic performance improves significantly — by millions of dollars. Brown said when he arrived at INSEAD five years ago it had 20 percent women; today it has 34 percent. “Once we hit 30 percent, the evaluation of the program went through the roof,” he said.

Roswell Business Briefs: Local news, awards, honors State bar honors lawyer Mike Gomez EMILY RUSSO MILLER RECORD STAFF WRITER

The State Bar of New Mexico honored a local lawyer in Albuquerque last night for practicing law for 25 years. M i k e Gomez, of Roswell, was recognized at the cerem o n y , which celebrated the 125th birthday the of Mike Gomez State Bar, alongside the longest serving prosecutor and public defender in the state and attorneys celebrating 50 years of service. “I’m happy that they recognize me. I feel honored to be an attorney— it’s an honorable profession,” Gomez said. “It’s a wonderful career, and I’ve enjoyed every minute of it. I love my job.” State Supreme Court justices, judges from the Court of Appeals, bar commissioners, the dean of the University of New Mexico School of Law and State Bar President Jessica A. Pérez, among others, attended the ceremonial dinner which was held at the State Bar Center. Mike Gomez was admitted to the State Bar of New Mexico in 1986 and founded Mike Gomez Law Fir m, 105 W. 3rd St., three years later. Since then, the fir m has branched out to Carlsbad and Clovis. The practice deals primarily in consumer bankruptcy law, but also specializes in Social Security Disability law, criminal law and personal injury law. Gomez says he is proud that his son, Michael Gomez, Jr., who is also an attorney, is following in

his footsteps. Gomez was unable to attend the ceremony Friday night, so his wife, Patricia, threw him a surprise luncheon at Pasta Cafe where he celebrated with family, friends and coworkers. “He made it. He did it,” Patricia said. She added that her husband, a Clovis and for mer native accountant, came from very humble beginnings and was once living on food stamps and welfare. “It’s a real rags-to-riches story,” she said. “I’m just very proud of him.”

Egyptian protesters return to Cairo’s streets

CAIRO (AP) — Hundreds of anti-government protesters returned Saturday to the streets of central Cairo, chanting slogans against Hosni Mubarak and attacking police just hours after the Egyptian president fired his Cabinet and promised reforms but refused to step down. The sight of protesters pouring into Cairo’s downtown Tahrir Square and clashing with police for a fifth day indicated Mubarak’s words in a televised speech shortly after midnight had done little to cool the anger over Egypt’s crushing poverty, unemployment and corruption. Over five days of protests — the largest Egypt has experienced in decades — crowds have overwhelmed police forces in Cairo and other cities around the nation with their numbers and in attacks with rocks and firebombs. Overnight, the government called in military forces and by morning the army had replaced police in guarding gover nment buildings and other key areas around the capital. Several tanks were parked in the vast Tahrir Square, but soldiers did not intervene in Saturday’s protest there. Protesters hurling stones attacked riot police trying to enter the square, and of ficers responded with a barrage of tear gas and rubber bullets. Not far from the square, the army sealed off the road leading to the parliament and Cabinet buildings.

Unrest in Egypt changes US travel plans

NEW YORK (AP) — An increasingly unstable situation in Egypt forced cruise companies, tour providers and solo U.S. travelers to cancel trips and change plans Friday. New Yorker Zach Honig, 25, currently traveling in Israel, said in an e-mail that he “was planning to go on to Cairo after this trip via bus, but decided to go to Italy and France instead.” Cruise companies were also canceling port calls and trips. Norwegian Cruise Line spokeswoman Courtney Recht said Friday that its Norwegian Jade ship would go to Istanbul this weekend instead of Alexandria, where the Jade had been expected to overnight Saturday to Sunday. Two Nile cruises by Avalon Waterways, scheduled for Jan. 29 and Feb. 1, were also canceled, with guests offered refunds and a chance to rebook later.

Bomber kills deputy governor in south Afghanistan KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) — A suicide bomber riding a motorcycle packed with explosives rammed into a car carrying the deputy governor of Afghanistan’s southern Kandahar province on Saturday, killing him and wounding three of his bodyguards, the Interior Ministry said. The attacker struck as the official, Abdul Latif Ashna, was being driven to work in the provincial capital, said a ministry spokesman, Zemeri Bashary. The Taliban claimed responsibility for the attack. In a text message to reporters, Taliban spokesman Qari Yousef said the suicide bomber killed the deputy governor as well as three of his body guards and his driver. The U.S. ambassador to Afghanistan, Karl Eikenberry, condemned the killing and offered his condolences to the official’s family. “The loss of a great deputy governor like this is a setback,” he said. “What we have seen is that consistently, Afghan government leaders emerge and the people continue to rally in an effort to establish security in this province and build a strong government.” He spoke at Kandahar Air Field, where he was attending a naturalization ceremony for U.S. service members becoming American citizens at the base. Kandahar, located in the Taliban’s traditional souther n stronghold, has been the scene of several attacks recently. Two weeks ago a bicycle bomb targeting police vehicles near the city center wounded at least 10 people — six civilians and four police. Last month, a suicide car bombing in the city center killed three people and wounded 26 others, most of them police. In Kabul, more than 200

demonstrators rallied at the Iranian Embassy to protest the execution of Afghans in Iran and call on Tehran to release Afghan political prisoners. Similar protests, all organized by the National Solidarity Party, attracted hundreds of other demonstrators in Mazar-iSharif in northern Afghanistan and Herat in the west. Protesters in the capital carried signs that said “Death to Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad,” showed photographs of Afghans held in Iran and depicted blood dripping from the red stripe of the Iranian flag. Afghan lawmakers have claimed that as many as 45 Afghans had been executed in Iran, but the Afghan Ministry of Foreign Af fairs has said that number is exaggerated. The ministry, which has raised the issue

with Iranian officials in Tehran, has confirmed the execution of six Afghans in Iran but has not provided details about why they were killed. “The ones fighting for freedom have been jailed in Iran,” said Mohammad Yama, who helped organize the protest in Kabul. “We are here to show our unity. We wanted to burn down our effigy of Ahmadinejad, but the Afghan police took it away.” Residents of the Afghan capital were still reeling on Saturday from Friday’s suicide bombing inside a supermarket popular with Westerners. Eight people — some of them foreigners — died in the attack, which showed insurgents can still strike forcibly in Kabul despite tightened security. Fifteen other people were

injured when the suicide bomber walked in to the store and detonated his cache of explosives. The Taliban said their target was an of ficial with the U.S.based Xe security contractor, formerly known as Blackwater. A representative for USTC Holdings, which recently bought the North Carolina-based Xe, said no one associated with the company was killed or wounded in the bombing. A senior international intelligence official in Kabul said Saturday that the Taliban’s Haqqani network, which has ties to alQaida, carried out the attack, but that there was no intelligence to suggest that the security contractor was being targeted. The official spoke on condition of anonymity to disclose the information.

Iran hangs Dutch woman detained in election unrest

TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — An Iranian-Dutch woman detained after participating in protests against Iran’s disputed presidential election in 2009 has been hanged. Zahram Bahrami’s execution appears to have been punishment for a conviction on other charges. State television says she was hanged Saturday for possessing and selling drugs. The report said that initially she was arrested for committing “security crimes,” but it did not say what became of that case. The protesters who took to the streets after President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s re-election said the voting was marred by fraud and that opposition leader Mir Hossein Mousavi was the rightful winner.

Taco Bell launched an ad campaign, Friday, to fight back against a lawsuit charging its taco filling isn't beef.


Taco Bell takes its beef with lawsuit to public Taco Bell says a legal beef over the meat in its tacos is bull. The fast-food chain took out full-page ads in at least nine major newspapers and launched a YouTube campaign featuring its president Friday to proclaim its taco filling is 88 percent beef. A false-advertising lawsuit filed last week that caused an online stir alleges the company’s filling doesn’t have enough beef to be called that. The lawsuit seeks to make the

company stop calling it “beef,” and pay the suing law firm’s bill. Taco Bell trumpeted “Thank you for suing us. Here’s the truth about our seasoned beef,” in the ads in Friday’s editions of the Wall Street Journal, USA Today and other papers. The ads go on to say the rest of the filling is a mixture of spices and common food additives. The lawsuit, filed in federal court in Califor nia, alleges the meat mixture has binders and extenders

and does not meet federal requirements to be labeled beef. Taco Bell denied those claims earlier this week but turned up the volume after a week in which the story spread like wildfire, making national headlines, creating an internet stir and even prompting a bit by comedian Stephen Colbert. Experts say similar cases show the tempest in a tortilla is unlikely to hurt Taco

Roswell Daily Record

Bell’s business, but the aggressive counter-attack is drawing some attention. “It is unusual for a company to take this on and challenge the allegations so boldly,” said Gene Grabowski, chair of the crisis and litigation practice at Levick Strategic Communications in Washington. “A lot of companies are going to be watching how this turns out.” The tone and scope of the campaign indi-

cates Taco Bell is confident in its facts, Grabowski said. Companies typically shy away from taking facts in a legal dispute public. The lawsuit, filed by the Alabama law fir m Beasley, Allen, Crow, Methvin, Portis & Miles, doesn’t specify what percentage of the mixture is meat. The lawyer on the case, Dee Miles, said the firm had the filling tested and found it contained 35 percent beef.

Don’t worry so much; just be yourself, knowing what it is you want. Tonight: Clear out some hurt feelings. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)  You might be overwhelmed. Just when you thought someone was coming through, you hit a snafu. Understanding evolves in a new direction. Realize what is happening with a risk. Tonight: Take care of yourself first. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)  Pushing someone really doesn’t get the desired results. Someone you need to answer to is very stern and/or direct, creating an unanticipated problem. You can only do so much. Prioritize and communicate. Tonight: Do your own thing. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)  Don’t push beyond your normal level. How you see someone and the choices you make reflect your inner self. At this point, you are changing. Center yourself for a while before making any major decisions. Tonight: Vanish. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)  Consider dealing with someone differently than in the past. A partner does not see eye to eye with you and lets you know it in no uncertain terms. Money discussions are best left for another day. A meeting proves to be supportive and informative. Tonight: Visit with a friend. BORN TODAY Author Zane Grey (1872), blues musician Charlie Musselwhite (1944), author Norman Mailer (1923)
