FBI HAS NEW LEAD ON D.B. COOPER CASE
WASHINGTON (AP) — Crisis legislation to yank the nation past the threat of a historic financial default sped through the House Monday night, breaking weeks of deadlock. The rare moment of cooperation turned celebratory when Rep. Gabrielle Giffords strode in for the first time since she was shot in the head nearly seven months ago.
THE VOICE OF THE PECOS VALLEY

The vote was 269-161, a scant day ahead of the deadline for action. But all eyes were on Giffords, who drew thunderous applause as she walked into the House chamber unannounced and cast her vote in favor of the bill. A final Senate sign-off for the measure is virtually assured on Tuesday. Aside from raising the debt limit, the bill would slice federal
spending by at least $2.1 trillion, and perhaps much more. “If the bill were presented to the president, he would sign it,” the White House said, an understatement of enormous proportions. After months of fierce struggle, the House’s top Republican and Democratic leaders swung behind the bill, ratifying a deal sealed Sunday night with a phone

Still, Republican lawmakers supported the compromise, 174-66, while Democrats split, 95-95 “The legislation will solve this debt crisis and help get

ALBUQUERQUE (AP) — A state board appointed by Gov. Susana Martinez agreed Monday to consider repealing greenhouse gas regulations opposed by her administration, utilities and oil and gas companies. The Environmental Improvement Board scheduled a series of public hearings beginning Nov. 8 on the rules, which were put in place under former Gov. Bill Richardson. Martinez calls the carbon controlling rules a “cap and tax” and included them on a list of Richardson-era environmental regulations that she has targeted as hampering business growth in the state. Public Service Company of New Mexico and others had gone to court seeking to overturn the rules. The state Court of Appeals and the Supreme Court agreed recently to let the parties take the issue back to regulators for consideration. The decision to reopen hearings on the matter raised the ire of environmentalists, who have accused Martinez’s administration of secretly colluding with polluters by holding meetings with the plaintiffs in the lawsuit in an effort to move the case
out of the courts and back under the administration’s control. “What does it mean when the regulators and the regulated meet behind closed doors?” said Mariel Nanasi, executive director of New Energy Economy, which initially petitioned state regulators to adopt the regulations under Richardson. “That is not the way that things are supposed to work. We want an unbiased board that hasn’t predetermined the outcome.” Don Brown, a spokesman for the Public Service Company of New Mexico, said the parties met as part of Court of Appeals-approved mediation in the case. Jim Winchester, a spokesman for the state environment department, said any allegation “that there was a predetermined outcome is false. The EIB, as far as we are concerned, acts as a separate body. They are not attached to the environment department in any way. They operate on their own.” Nanasi’s group was recently granted permission by the Supreme Court

WASHINGTON (AP) — Manufacturers had their weakest growth in two years in July, a sign that the economy could weaken this summer.

FBI: ‘Credible lead’ surfaces in D.B. Cooper case WASHINGTON (AP) — The FBI is investigating whether a dead man in the Pacific Northwest is D.B. Cooper, who hijacked a passenger jet in 1971 over Washington state and parachuted with $200,000 in ransom. Cooper has never been found. FBI agent Fred Gutt said Monday the bureau is following up a “credible” lead in the unsolved case and is focused on a suspect who died more than 10 years ago. Gutt said the bureau received a tip from a retired law enforcement

So, too, many of the firstterm Republicans whose election in 2010 handed the GOP control of the House and set the federal government on a new, more conservative course. “It’s about time that Congress come together and figure out a way to live within our means,” said one of them, Sean Duffy of Wisconsin. “This bill is going to start that process although it doesn’t go far enough.” The measure would cut federal spending by at least $2.1 trillion over a decade — and possibly considerably more — and would not require tax increases. The U.S. debt limit would rise by at least $2.1 trillion, tiding the T reasury over through the 2012 elections.

She greeted some fellow lawmakers who crowded around her and blew kisses to others, beaming the whole while. Her hair was dark and close cropped and she wore glasses — nothing like the image America had of her six months ago when she was shot while greeting constituents outside a supermarket in Tucson. She did not speak with reporters. As for the legislation, after months of wrangling over a deal, there was little time left for lawmakers to decide how to vote. The White House dispatched Vice President Joe was going to kill Chris and Alisa. After the shooting, Vega made a second call to say that he had done it. According to court documents, Vega then told his nephew to leave, saying that the police were not going to take him alive.

working with surviving family members to gather other items for further testing. The suspect is someone who has not been previously investigated, and Gutt said initial vetting supported the belief of the tipster. But he cautioned that the new lead may not pan out and that investigators were still pursuing other possibilities. “Maybe this is just someone else who just happened to look like him and whose life story just kind of paralleled,” Gutt said. Gutt said the new lead
is also promising because of the way it came to the FBI. The tipster initially discussed the case with a retired law enforcement officer who then contacted the FBI. Only after the FBI contacted the witness directly did the person discuss the Cooper case with investigators. “They’re not seeking attention,” Gutt said. “To the contrary, they’re looking to avoid it.” Federal investigators have checked more than 1,000 leads since the suspect bailed out on Nov. 24, 1971, over the Pacific Northwest.

Biden to the Capitol to lobby recalcitrant Democrats in both houses. “They expressed all their frustration,” he conceded after a session with lawmakers of his party in the House. He said the deal “has one overwhelming redeeming feature” — postponing the next debt limit battle until 2013 and putting the current fight behind. “We have to get this out of the way to get to the issue of growing the economy,” he said. Republicans lobbied their rank and file as well, and the results were far more positive for them than a week ago when they were forced to delay a vote on an earlier measure. GOP leaders swiftly drew public pledges of support from some first-termers as well as veteran defense hawks — two areas of concern with the agreement. Rep. C.W. (Bill) Young, chairman of the committee that handles the defense budget, said, “We’re confident that we can make this happen without affecting readiness and without affecting any of our soldiers.” There were critics on both sides of the aisle, some of them anguished.
“I did not come to Washington to force more people into poverty,” said Rep. Jim McGovern, D-Mass. “At the end of the day, Washington’s spending still has us sprinting toward a fiscal clif f. And this bill barely slows us down,” said Rep. Mark Mulvaney, RS.C. There is little suspense about the outcome for the debt-limit legislation in the Senate on Tuesday. A member of the Republican leadership in the Senate predicted strong GOP support. “Maybe 35 (of 47) will support it in the end. There will be some who will pull back,” said Sen. Mike Crapo of Idaho. Already, the legislation was emerging as an issue in the 2012 presidential campaign. Rep. Michele Bachmann of Minnesota and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney announced their opposition, while Newt Gingrich issued a statement without saying how he would vote. The final legislation reflected the priorities of the two political parties. It would immediately increase the debt limit by $400 billion, with another $500 billion envisioned
unless Congress blocks it. At the same time, it would cut more than $900 billion over 10 years from the dayto-day operating budgets of Cabinet agencies. For the budget year that begins Oct. 1, spending would be held $7 billion below current levels. The measure also establishes a 12-member HouseSenate committee that will be charged with producing up to $1.5 trillion in additional deficit cuts over a decade. If the panel succeeds, Congress will be required to vote on the recommendations without possibility of changes. If the panel deadlocks or fails to produce at least $1.2 trillion in deficit savings, then spending cuts are to take effect across much of the federal budget. The Pentagon, domestic agencies and farm subsidies would be affected, as would payments to doctors and other Medicare providers. But individual benefits under Social Security, Medicaid, Medicare and programs for veterans and federal retirees would be exempt. At the same time, the debt limit would rise by at least another $1.2 trillion, and perhaps — depending

Cosby said that he had the psychological evaluation of Dr. Rolls and he pointed out that the assessment was not intended for the use to challenge sanity or competency, but to raise issues of diminished capacity. Grif fin said the State would bring Clinton Rhyne to review the defense psycchologist’s evaluation.

pushing construction spending higher for a third straight month. Construction spending rose 0.2 percent in June, to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of $772.3 billion, the government said. But even with the gains, spending remains slightly above an 11-year low hit in March and is just half of the $1.5 trillion pace considered healthy by most economists. The economy expanded at a dismal 1.3 percent annual rate in the AprilJune period after an even worse 0.4 percent increase in the first three months of the year, the government said Friday. The factory sector has expanded in every month but one since the recession ended in June 2009. The ISM’s index topped 60 for four straight months at the start of the year. But manufacturing has stumbled in recent months. A parts shortage stemming from Japan's March 11 earthquake dis-
rupted automakers’ supply chains, cutting into the output of new cars. And high gas prices left Americans with less money to spend on discretionary items, such as vacations, furniture and appliances. The index fell in May to 53.5 from April's reading of 60.4. That was the sharpest one-month drop since 1984. Employers have responded by pulling back on hiring. The economy added just 18,000 net jobs in June, the fewest in nine months, and the unemployment rate rose to 9.2 percent. Hiring by manufacturers was nearly flat in the April-June period.

ing per for mance of the economy in the first half of the year was not just temporary,” said Paul Dales, a senior U.S. economist for Capital Economics. The news of weak factory growth in July also cooled what looked to be a strong day on Wall Street. The Dow Jones industrial average had risen nearly 140 points in the first half-hour of trading, after President Barack Obama and lawmakers announced a deal to raise the nation’s borrowing limit. But the Dow erased all of those gains after the manufacturing report was released, and then fell another 145 points. It later pared most of the day’s losses to close 11 points down.

The measure also increases funding for Pell Grants for low-income college students by $17 billion over the next two years, financed by curbs on federal student loan subsidies. The result of weeks of negotiations and harsh arguing, the final result represented a product of divided government that gave neither side everything it wanted. Leaders in both parties were emphatic on that point. “As with any compromise, the outcome is far from satisfying,” conceded Obama in a video his reelection campaign sent to millions of Democrats.

It had contracted in June for the first time in nine months. And a private survey in Chicago showed that manufacturing expanded in July, but at a slower pace than in June. Meanwhile, a survey by the New York Federal Reserve Bank found regional manufacturing activity shrank in July. Manufacturing represents only about 11 percent of U.S. economic activity and can contribute only so much to the broader economic recovery. For unemployment to fall significantly, consumer income and spending also must pick up. The ISM, a trade group of purchasing executives based in Tempe, Ariz., compiles its manufacturing index by surveying about 300 purchasing executives across the country.

Sisters win top prize for best dairy goats at County Fair EMILY RUSSO MILLER RECORD STAFF WRITER
Two sisters from Roswell took the top prizes for the best dairy goats at the 2011 Chaves County 4-H and FFA Fair Monday night at the Eastern New Mexico State Fairgrounds, as they continued their longstanding tradition of competing for the gold. “It’s a little competition between sisters,” Hannah Sparkman, 14 today, said. “It’s fun.” Hannah won the Championship prize with her 4year-old LaMancha dairy goat named Raven, while Kirsten, 15, won Reserve Champion for her Saanen dairy goat, Nibbler. The
contest was close between the two goats, judge Cindy Foglesong said, and it came down to who had the better feet. “The LaMancha had tighter toes, and she was more correct in her feet,” and had better smoothness overall, Foglesong said, though stating that they were both “beautiful, beautiful animals.” She added, “With dairy goats, what you want to see is an animal that’s going to hold up for many, many years, and have good production. When their feet are not real strong and correct then their legs can have problems and they’re just not going to hold up, just like
people.” The two teens, daughters of Loretta and Clay Sparkman, have been competing for years and are members of the Country Kids 4-H Club, Loretta says. They raise their goats and other animals on the family farm. “It’s wonder ful,” she said, noting that though the girls were dressed the same — black slacks and white blouses — they have two different showing personalties. “Kirsten’s the more shy one, and Hannah’s more outgoing.” Hannah says she and her sister tend to the animals in the morning and afternoon, before and after being home-schooled.
Montoya trial has been scheduled JESSICA PALMER RECORD STAFF WRITER
A hearing was held in Juvenile Court for Frank Montoya, 14, who is charged with one count of first-degree murder, willful and deliberate, for the April 16 killing of Rodney Sanchez, 31. Two people died during the shoot out that occurred on East Byrne Street. The second was identified as Brandon Lucero, 19. “The other person who died was his co-conspirator,” said District Attorney Janetta Hicks. A neighbor reported
the incident after he was awakened by gunfire around midnight. According to the petition filed in District court, Montoya is also charged with aggravated assault on another individual and unlawfully being in possession of a handgun. The Roswell Police Department responded to the call. Montoya was found severely wounded. He had to be flown to Lubbock for treatment of his injuries. Montoya was extradited from Texas on April 20. RPD spokeswoman Of ficer Erica O’Bryon said after the incident, "It
began with a verbal argument, and the end result was two dead." Sanchez moved to Roswell from California two years ago. The 19year-old Lucero attended Roswell High School. Assistant District Attorney Donald Moore said the State had yet to receive the report about DNA evidence. Romero said that the trial would be scheduled for Aug. 30. "If the items have not been received by that time, file a written motion for continuance." firstname.lastname@example.org
Burglars steal weapons and firearms

Second St., Sunday, where subjects broke two windows on the north and south sides of the building and removed 50 packages of cigarettes, val-
ued at $250. Repair costs for the damages to the windows were estimated at $500. •Police were called to the 500 block of South Kentucky Avenue, Sunday. The victim reported that she was awakened by a loud noise and discovered her back door open. Her purse had been rifled through, but the only thing taken was a pack of cigarettes.
•Police were dispatched to the 800 block of Eldora Drive, Sunday, following two vehicle burglaries. One vehicle had a mounted tool chest in the bed of the pickup broken into.

Judge Freddie Romero informed Sammy Duran, 17, during his arraignment in Juvenile Court, Monday, that the State was seeking to try him as an adult on two counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and one count of shooting at or from a vehicle. District Attorney Janetta Hicks explained that if a child was charged with a serious crime and over the age of 15, then the case could be transferred to criminal court for trial as an adult.
The charges stem from an incident which occurred on July 3, around 1 p.m. when one vehicle pulled up to another at the intersection of Grand Avenue and Lewis Street. Duran allegedly fired into the vehicle. One 17-year-old juvenile was wounded and another passenger threatened. Romero told Duran that the case would be referred to another judge in the District Court for trial. Duran was featured on Roswell Daily Record’s Most Wanted on two occa-
sions. He was apprehended on July 22. Assault with a deadly weapon is a fourth-degree felony. Shooting at or from a motor vehicle is a thirddegree felony. If found guilty, Duran could face up to three years of imprisonment for the third-degree felony charge, 18 months imprisonment for each fourth-degree charge, and potential fines up to $5,000 on all three charges.

Applause greets Rep. Giffords’ return to the House WASHINGTON (AP) — Slowly, with a sense of purpose, Rep. Gabrielle Giffords entered the House chamber Monday night to cast her first vote since she was shot in the head last January, a dramatic return that surprised colleagues. The chamber erupted in loud, sustained applause as Democrats enveloped Giffords with hugs and kisses. Only minutes remained on a historic vote on the debt-limit bill. Most lawmakers were staring at the vote board when Giffords made her way through the door on the right side of the chamber. Few knew in advance that she would appear. Democrats crowded around her as she mouthed “thank-you’s.” She used one hand to greet some, the other by her side. Her hair was dark and closely cropped, and she wore glasses. Her image was quite different from the one Americans saw seven months ago when she was sworn-in by House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio. In the House chamber, colleagues, stunned and joyful, made their way to greet Giffords. “It means so much to our country ... to witness the return of our colleague who is the personification of courage, of sincerity, of admiration throughout the country,” Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi of California told the House. Her return is “a triumph of the first magnitude and we are all so very proud of her,” said Rep. T rent Franks, R-Ariz. Giffords cast her vote — “yes” — and left the House chamber and the Capitol. “I have closely followed the debate over our debt
ceiling and have been deeply disappointed at what’s going on in Washington,” Giffords said in a statement release later. “I strongly believe that crossing the aisle for the good of the American people is more important than party politics. I had to be here for this vote. I could not take the chance that my absence could crash our economy,” she said. The congressional news release was the only thing typical in a highly atypical moment. Near the doorway to the House, Vice President Joe Biden greeted Giffords and marveled at her return. “She’s remarkable. Will matters,” Biden said in an interview. “She’s the embodiment of a strong, strong, strong woman. Think about what that woman’s been through, and think about her determination.” On Jan. 8, Giffords, DAriz., was shot in the head in the parking lot of a Tucson grocery store while meeting with constituents. Six people were killed and 13 others, including Giffords, were wounded. As Biden hugged Giffords, Republican presidential candidate Rep. Michele Bachmann, RMinn., joined them. “Sure, I like Michele Bachmann. We’re all standing there and Michele walks up to see Gabby, because she cares about her,” Biden said. Gif fords exited the House chamber by the east door, leaning heavily on an aide as she walked with obvious difficulty. Her husband, astronaut Mark Kelly, accompanied her. Police had cleared a path through a mob of reporters, and Giffords did not respond to questions
and greetings. Pelosi said Giffords had decided to come for the debt-ceiling vote, something the California congresswoman didn’t learn about until Monday morning. The House’s No. 2 Democrat, Steny Hoyer, lear ned about Gif fords’ retur n just 30 minutes before she arrived. After Giffords entered the chamber, Pelosi said, “we were just hugging. Girl hugs.” “It was one of the most thrilling moments for all of us to see this real heroine retur n to the House,” Pelosi said, “and to do so at such a dramatic time.” Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Fla., a friend of Giffords, said she found out that the congresswoman would cast her vote from a 2 a.m. text message she received from Kelly. “It’s an incredibly important vote, pivotal for the country. And she felt it was really important that she be here to represent her district,” said Wasserman Schultz, who added that Gif fords had been reviewing the legislation. “She still has rehabilitation to go through and a lot of recovery. So she’s not ready to come back full time. But she wanted her district to have its voice here on probably the most important vote we’ll cast this Congress,” Wasserman Schultz said. Giffords’ political future remains uncertain. She has not filed for re-election next year though she has money for another bid, thanks to friends and colleagues who want to ensure she has the resources necessary. Documents filed with the Federal Election Commission last month show the Ari-
Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, D-Ariz., appears on the floor of the House of Representatives Monday, in Washington. Giffords was on the floor for the first time since her shooting earlier this year, attending a vote on the debt standoff compromise.
zona Democrat had more than $787,000 in the bank at the end of June. In Tucson on Monday, Pam Simon, a Gif fords staffer who also survived the shooting, said she and everyone in her office huddled around the TV to watch the congresswoman’s retur n to the floor. “We were glued to it,” she said. “We were hugging and some of us were in tears and some people were shouting. It was very joyful.” As a fellow survivor, Simon said she was “absolutely thrilled.” “I felt extremely emotional,” she said. “It’s a landmark. It signifies how far we’ve all come. “We will be forever tied to that tragic event,” she added. “Seeing Gabby there is just a wonderful
Gov’t advisers: No copays for contraceptives
WASHINGTON (AP) — Millions of women stand to gain free access to a broad menu of birth control methods, thanks to a recommendation issued Tuesday by health experts advising the government. An Institute of Medicine panel recommended that the gover nment require health insurance companies to cover birth control for women as preventive care, without copayments. Contraception — along with such care as diabetes tests during pregnancy and screening for the virus that causes cervical cancer — was one of eight recommended preventive services for women. “Unintended pregnancies carry health consequences for the mother — psychological, emotional and physical — and also consequences for the newborn,” said Dr. Linda Rosenstock, panel chairwoman and dean of public health at the University of California, Los Angeles. “The overwhelming evidence was strongly supportive of the health benefit” of contraception. A half century after the introduction of the birth control pill, the panel’s recommendations may help to usher in another revolution. Medical experts say easier access could start a shift to more reliable forms of long-acting birth control, such as implants or IUDs, which are gaining acceptance in other economically developed countries. Emergency contraception, known as the mor ningafter pill, would also be covered. All but one member of the 16-person IOM panel supported the final recom-
mendations. President Barack Obama’s health care law already requires most health plans to provide standard preventive care for people of both sexes at no additional charge to patients. Women’s health recommendations were considered new and politically sensitive territory, so the nonpartisan institute was asked to examine the issue. Nonetheless, a fight over social mores is brewing. Catholic bishops and other religious and social conservatives say pregnancy is a healthy condition and the gover nment should not require insurance coverage of drugs and other methods that prevent it. (Most health plans already cover contraception.) The conservative Family Research Council said the recommendations could lead to a federal “mandate” for abortion coverage, since emergency contraceptives such as Plan B and Ella would be covered. But the Food and Drug Administration classifies those drugs as birth control, not abortion pills. Panel member Alina Salganicoff, women’s health policy director for the Kaiser Family Foundation, said abortion drugs are not included in the recommendations. Short of repealing part of the health care law, it’s unclear what opponents can do to block the recommendations. A final decision by Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius is expected around Aug. 1. Sebelius called the recommendations “historic,” saying they are based on
S u p p o r t t h e U n i t e d Wa y
science. “We are one step closer to saying goodbye to an era when simply being a woman was treated as a pre-existing condition,” said Sen. Barbara Mikulski, D-Md., who sponsored the women’s health amendment. Under the law, the earliest the final requirements would take effect is next year. In most cases, it’s likely to be Jan.1, 2013. Birth control use is virtually universal in the United States. Generic versions of the pill are available for as little as $9 a month. Still, about half of all pregnancies are unplanned. Many are among women using some form of contraception, and forgetting to take the pill a major reason. Experts say a shift to longer acting birth control would help. Contraception is about more than simply preventing pregnancy — it can help make a woman’s next pregnancy healthier by spacing births far enough apart, generally 18 months to two years. Research links closely spaced births to a risk of such problems as prematurity, low birth weight, even autism. Research has shown that even modest copays for medical care can discourage use. Other preventive services recommended by the IOM panel include: —At least one “wellwoman” preventive care visit annually. —Annual HIV counseling and screening for sexually active women. —Screening for and counseling about domestic violence.
Tuesday, August 2, 2011
—Annual counseling on sexually transmitted infections for sexually active women. —Support for breast feeding mothers, including the cost of renting pumps. The screening for the virus that causes cervical cancer is for women starting at age 30, no more frequently than every three years. As for the pregnancy diabetes check, it should come at the first prenatal visit for high-risk women, and between 24 and 28 weeks for all others. Although the services will be free of any additional charge to patients, somebody has to pay. The cost is likely to be spread among other people with health insurance, resulting in slightly higher premiums. Dissenting panel member Anthony Lo Sasso, a senior research professor at the University of Illinois school of public health, cited the lack of a cost-benefit analysis as a reason for his disapproval. Panel chair Rosenstock said the group was not asked to consider cost. It’s unclear how easy it will be to take advantage of the no-copay rule in the doctor’s office. Consider: A woman sees the doctor about pain in her hip — paying the required the copay — but during the same visit, receives her overdue screening for cervical cancer. The Health and Human Services Department should require that the woman not be charged lab fees for that cervical test, said Cynthia Pearson of the National Women’s Health Network.
step for us all.” She said she thought Giffords looked excited yet relaxed. “Knowing Gabby, I know she is just so happy to be back among her colleagues,” she said. “Didn’t she look right at home?” Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., a friend of Giffords, said in a statement that she had “tears of joy seeing Gabby on the floor where she tonight belongs.” “Gabby is a fighter and I always knew this day would come. She continues to inspire the nation with her strength and courage,” Gillibrand said. Gif fords has been undergoing outpatient therapy in Houston since her release from the hospital in June. Shortly after her appearance, a tweet appeared on
Giffords’ Twitter account: “The Capitol looks beautiful and I am honored to be at work tonight.” The man charged in the shooting, Jared Lee Loughner, has pleaded not guilty to 49 charges. Loughner was sent to a federal prison facility in Springfield, Mo., after a federal judge concluded he was mentally incompetent to stand trial. Ron Barber, another Giffords staffer who survived the shooting, said he was in physical therapy for a gunshot wound to the thigh when she voted but that he tuned in when he retur ned to his Tucson home. “I have to admit I wept,” Barber said. “All of us who were with her that day are by her encouraged progress.”
Whistleblower in Afghan killings reaches plea deal
ASSOCIATED PRESS A soldier who tried to blow the whistle on a plot to murder Afghan civilians last year — only to later say he was pressured into taking part himself — has reached a plea deal under which he will serve no more than eight years in prison, a person familiar with the case said Monday. Spc. Adam Winfield of Cape Coral, Fla., will plead guilty on Friday to a charge of involuntary manslaughter, a person familiar with the matter told The Associated Press. The person spoke LETTERS on condition of anonymity because Winfield had not yet entered the plea. The Army had charged him with premeditated murder, and he could have spent life in prison. Under the deal, Winfield
will agree to testify against others charged in the case, including Staff Sgt. Calvin Gibbs of Billings, Mont., who has been portrayed as the ringleader. Winfield and Gibbs are among five soldiers accused in the three killings during patrols in Kandahar Province last year. Gibbs also is accused of keeping severed fingers from the dead and other misconduct, including leading others in beating up a soldier who reported drug use in the unit. Winfield’s family declined to immediately comment on the plea deal Monday. An Army spokesman refused to confirm the deal, saying Winfield’s court-martial was set for Friday.

Give education secretary and her reforms a chance
Should we be more concerned that 87 percent of our public schools didn’t make Adequate Yearly Progress or that Democrats are still nitpicking Secretary of Education-designate Hanna Skandera? I’d say the AYP scores are the least of our worries. It’s apparent by now that this yardstick of the federal No Child Left Behind Act is inherently unfair and unhelpful. We also know that half our kids can’t read and 60 percent struggle with math. That’s why Gov. Susana Martinez plucked a veteran of former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush’s education team to replicate Florida’s success here. To anyone who would remind me of the famous axiom that what works elsewhere won’t work in New Mexico, I would remind you that the massive education reform package passed on the previous administration’s watch borrowed heavily from the Tennessee model.
ALL SHE WROTE
That bipartisan reform, led by a Democratic governor, improved accountability and teacher pay but failed to produce the needed turnaround. Now it’s somebody else’s turn, but instead of pulling together, we have petty carping from the Legislative Education Study Committee about Skandera’s use of consultants while she got her team on board and then more carping about how two (two!) of the new hires are from outside the state. One committee member even accused Skandera of being unprepared to lead.
Business managers routinely call in consultants, valued for their objectivity and expertise, to examine a problem and make recommendations. That’s why the New Mexico Business Roundtable for Educational Excellence, which firmly supported the previous reforms, defended Skandera’s use of consultants and supported her decision to hire the “best and brightest” from New Mexico and other states to push reforms. The Roundtable’s leaders called on New Mexicans to give Skandera and “bold change” a chance. I would second that motion and point out that, considering how politicized education is here, it was probably helpful to get advice from people who had no horse in the race. Beyond that, it’s always been the prerogative of appointees to surround themselves with a few people of their choosing. Skandera disagrees with the Annual Yearly Progress measures, which is why she is anxious to
Roswell Daily Record
introduce the A-to-F grading system approved in this year’s legislative session. And she intends to apply for a waiver from the requirements and penalties of No Child Left Behind; U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan has indicated he may offer waivers if states have other systems in place. The A-to-F system has its own hazards, however. At a June Education Study Committee meeting, superintendents had some reservations. The state doesn’t test students in all grades, and the proposed rating system is based on just reading and math. Many superintendents support the law, said Tom Sullivan, executive director of the New Mexico Coalition of School Administrators, but see bugs to be worked out. Among other things, they want graduation rates to include students who take five years and not four. “What we are basically being presented with is a Florida model
with the word ‘Florida’ whited out and ‘New Mexico’ typed in,” Sullivan said. The Coalition for Excellence in Science and Math Education (http://www.cesame-nm.org/) has concerns about how the grade is calculated. A school’s performance reflects a multitude of variables, the two biggest being student demographics and poverty. Account for these variables and you get a reasonably fair and accurate measure that can be compared with statistical expectations. If the school is doing better, it’s on the right track and can be an example to others like it. If it’s lagging, it can get help. Without a meaningful adjustment, all you have is another No Child Left Behind. It would be nice to see the education committee’s Dems give Skandera the tools she wants and hold her accountable. If she does not deliver, she and her boss get a failing grade. © New Mexico News Services 2011
Capturing BP dollars
If Washington seems hopelessly divided over what to do about the nation’s debt limit, at least one bipartisan group of politicians is united in a common cause — spending BP’s money. Senators from the five Gulf Coast states — including Florida’s Bill Nelson (a Democrat) and Marco Rubio (a Republican) — are sponsoring legislation that would ensure that 80 percent of the fines levied against BP for the Deepwater Horizon disaster go toward economic and ecological recovery in those states affected by the oil spill. It would provide much-needed protection for the region. If Congress does not pass a law, all that money will go into the Treasury’s general fund, where it will wind up being scattered across the country. Sorry, but we’re not interested in seeing oil-spill dollars being spent in Montana on wool and mohair subsidies. The bill is kin to Florida’s Oil Spill Economic Recovery Act, which was sponsored by State Sen. Don Gaetz, R-Niceville, and signed into law in May by Florida Gov. Rick Scott. That ensures that three-fourths of all fines or settlement funds from the BP oil spill be directed to the eight counties in Northwest Florida — Escambia, Santa Rosa, Okaloosa, Walton, Bay, Gulf, Franklin and Wakulla — that were most affected by the disaster. The oil is gone, but the Gulf Coast is still shaking off its environmental and economic effects. Tourism has rebounded nicely, but commercial fishing and oystering took big hits and there is still uncertainty over the long-term effects of the crude on Gulf waters and coastal ecosystems. And BP has yet to pay for the full costs of its negligence. Under the Clean Water Act, BP can be fined up to $4,300 per barrel of oil spilled. With an estimated 4.9 million barrels spilled, fines could range between $5.4 billion and $21.1 billion. The Senate legislation calls for 35 percent of that money to be distributed equally to the five states (Florida, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana and Texas), 30 percent for the ecosystem restoration plan, 30 percent based on a formula that measures how each state was impacted by the oil and 5 percent for the science and fisheries program. Some may view this as the typical pigs lining up at the federal trough. But this isn’t another Washington handout, like debtfinanced stimulus dollars. It is about holding BP accountable for its actions. The fine schedule was in place before the spill. The money is going to be collected. The funds should be dispersed to those who suffered the most from the disaster — and not be a general-revenue windfall for Uncle Sam, in which case it would be spent on places whose only connection to BP oil is the corner gas station. Nelson has suggested some of those funds could be used for oyster reef restoration in Pensacola Bay and for the Gulf sturgeon habitat in Okaloosa County. That’s a good reason for Congress to pass this bill and for President Obama to sign it into law. Guest Editorial Panama City News Herald DEAR DR.

Young Earth idea doesn’t work
Dear Editor: Here we go again, with a letter on 26 July trying to defend the ridiculous “young Earth” theory. If this were the third century, I wouldn’t be so surprised, but by now we’ve come too far in scientific understanding of the world for this sort of thing. I previously pointed out that we can see galaxies so far away that the light from them has required over a billion years to reach us. The “young Earth” advocate suggests that light could have changed its speed enough to get here in less than 10,000 years from those distances. On the contrary, there is no timelight-dilation effect that could make light from a galaxy a billion light-years away arrive so quickly. Consequently, if the Earth were “young,” it would have to be those distances that were wrong, and everything we see in the universe would have to be compressed into a ball around the Earth extending

To imagine billions of other galaxies crammed into a fraction of the size of our own, when we can see that this is not the case, is an exercise in lunacy. Once you realize that by overwhelming scientific and mathematical evidence the Earth is not “young,” then the question of complex systems arising spontaneously is no longer a problem, because there has been plenty of time for them to arise. But “young Earth” apologists, unlike those of us who follow real science wherever it leads, do not seem to be motivated so much by a desire for scientific truth, as by a desire to defend some belief system that they imagine to be threatened by a public awareness of the demonstrable age of the universe. Things are the way they are, no matter what one might prefer to believe. Sincerely, Donald R. Burleson, Ph.D. Roswell spinal cord runs or where a portion of the nerve exits the vertebrae.

America is a large and diverse land with an interesting history. Two hundred years ago, the Mississippi River was seen by some people as a source of life providing food and other resources to survive. To others, it was an obstacle to American westward expansion, business and commerce. History shows the river can be unpredictable, and the series of events that changed the landscape of the river, the valley
and the people living in the area during 1811 to 1812 was completely unpredicted. TomĂĄs GonzĂĄlez, reference staff, investigates the phenomenon of the New Madrid earthquakes. Jay Feldmanâ€™s â€œWhen the Mississippi Ran Backwards: Empire, Intrigue, Murder and The New Madrid Earthquakesâ€? combines a look at life on the Mississippi River, the New Madrid Earthquakes and the political and social events that would shape the United States. Feldman provides perspective on the conflict between Indians and the United States, the War of 1812, the first steamboat to run upstream on the Mississippi River, and the discovery of a body, murdered by a presidential family member, that was uncovered and revealed by the earthquakes. New Madrid, Mo., located near the Missouri border close to Kentucky and Tennessee, was the epicenter for a series of earthquakes. These were so powerful that they caused a shift in the flow of a portion of the Mississippi River causing it to run the opposite way and changing the land from waterfalls on the river to newly formed lakes. It is said that from the thousands of tremors felt throughout the

Dear Editor: The Department of Energy was formed in 1977 by Jimmy Carter. They received $789 billion from the stimulus package and another $38.3 billion for fiscal years 2009 and 2010. You would think their mission would be to generate electricity or other forms of energy. They have never produced a single unit of energy and are taking on responsibilities better left to the EPA, OSHA, national security and other departments of government. They subsidize an enormous amount of research for universities and laboratories with our taxpayer dollars. They ensure the availability of radio isotopes which are used in the diagnosis and treatment of various cancers, heart disease and other medical problems. They also monitor the safety of workers to protect them from harm from their managementâ€™s environmental practices. These are jobs for the health departments, OSHA and EPA. They have become a tool of the extreme environmentalists. They research climate change and â€œenvironmental remediation.â€? They are opposed to fossil fuels. Their research wants to address clean energy, carbon sequestration and environmental cleanup. They also dispose of radioactive nuclear waste, also the job of the EPA. Itâ€™s a costly redundancy that we have to pay for. We have many sources of energy, but the DOE focus is on â€œclean fuel initiatives,â€? none of which are cheap or cheaper than fossil fuels. California is now turning off its windmills when the winds are higher than 23 mph because they are so noisy, even though they work best in winds 30 mph or higher. They also kill thousands of birds each year. We are advised to use expensive, toxic mercury-laden light bulbs to save energy. Do not break one, or you must evacuate your property for hours. Their goal is coordination with the United Nations global environmental agenda. At the G-20 summit in Pittsburgh, our president made an agreement of phase out tax subsidies for fossil fuel producers so we can â€œtransition to a 21st century energy economy.â€? They
months of December 1811 to April 1812 there were three earthquakes that were believed to have measured at or above an 8.0 on the Richter scale, although at this time period there was no scale in place to reveal the exact scale of the quakes. All of this is brought together and shared in an interesting, informative and fascinating look into a little known history of the United States. It also describes just how dangerous life on the Mississippi River Valley was and still is today. Another book dealing with the New Madrid earthquakes is â€œThe Big One: The Earthquake That Rocked Early America and Helped Create A Scienceâ€? by Jake Page and Charles Officer. They offer a more scientific approach to understanding the causes and impact of the quakes by studying the geological history of the Mississippi River Valley. In addition, they provide a history of the primitive seismology at the time of the New Madrid earthquakes to the advanced science that it has become today. One of the strange occurrences of the New Madrid earthquakes is that they occurred in the middle of a continental plate instead of between two dif ferent plates, causing an even greater difficulty in predicting and recognizing early activity of an earthquake. The authors argue that these earthquakes were not a freak occurrence, but could possibly
also sponsored the Weatherization Assistance Program to make the homes of the â€œdisadvantagedâ€? more energy efficient. These â€œdisadvantagedâ€? are the 47 percent of the population who pay no income tax and get this assistance at the expense of the tax-paying middle class. Their latest, most reprehensible scheme is a personal surveillance device called a Smart Meter. This device is a digital electricity consumption reader and is installed under the guise that the old ones are cracked or not reading properly. The Smart Meter will tell a distant server how many watts you consume, when you turn on and off every lamp in your home, how many computers or electric gadgets you have, when you sleep, when you are on vacation, when you are not at home, your living pattern in general. Basically, this is a search of your life and home without a warrant. This information can and will be sold to anyone willing to pay. Hackers can intercept the data streaming from your home 24/7. This could be used, in the name of energy efficiency, to cut off electricity during peak usage, summer or winter, from a remote location. According to GreenTeam Media Research, 10 states are leading the effort to deploy this smart grid. They have been awarded 42 percent, or $l.9 billion of the $4.5 billion earmarked for the smart grid in the stimulus package of 2009. These states, which will be getting millions for this purpose, are California, Colorado, Florida, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Texas. Nobody seems concerned about the issue of invasion of personal liberty and the illegality of tapping into someoneâ€™s life without a warrant. Since tapping into someoneâ€™s home is illegal in all 50 states, DOE uses â€œimplied consentâ€? when they change the meter. Be aware when this comes to our state and send a notice that you do not wish to have your meter changed, the old ones work just fine. This is â€œBig Brother Governmentâ€? at its worst and we must oppose it while we still can. Delma Craig Roswell

Recognizing voices harder for people with dyslexia Roswell Daily Record
Today, researchers know that children who are more phonologically aware when they enter kindergarten have a better shot at easy reading.
WASHINGTON (AP) — Pick up the phone and hear, “Hey, what’s up?” Chances are, those few words are enough to recognize who’s speaking — perhaps unless you have dyslexia. In a surprise discovery, researchers found adults with that reading disorder also have a hard time recognizing voices. The work isn’t just a curiosity. It fits with research to uncover the building blocks of literacy and how they can go wrong. The eventual goal: To spot at-risk youngsters even befor e they open “Go, Dog, Go!” in kindergarten — instead of diagnosing dyslexia in a struggling secondgrader. “Everybody is interested in understanding the root cause of dyslexia, so we can intervene early and do something about it,” says Massachusetts Institute of Technology cognitive neuroscientist John Gabrieli, senior author of the study published last week in the journal Science. Dyslexia is thought to affect 8 percent to 15 percent of Americans, who can have great difficulty reading and writing. It’s

not a problem with intelligence or vision. Instead, it’s languagebased. The brain struggles with what’s called “phonological processing” — being able to distinguish and manipulate sounds, like “bah” and “pah,” that eventually have to be linked to written letters and words. A graduate student in Gabrieli’s lab wonder ed if dyslexia would impair voice recognition as well. After all, subtle differences in pronunciation help distinguish people. How to test that? Pr evious studies have shown it’s easier to recognize voices if they’re speaking your own language. So the researchers recruited Englishspeaking college students and young adults, half with dyslexia, half without. They watched animated characters — like a
clown, a mechanic, a soccer player — speaking either English or Chinese, to get familiar with how they sounded. Then came the test, to match a voice to its character. The volunteers correctly identified the Chinese speakers only about half the time, r egar dless of whether they had dyslexia. But when they heard English speakers, people with dyslexia still were right only half the time — while the non-dyslexics did far better, identifying 70 percent of the voices correctly. That provides further evidence of dyslexia’s str ong link to phonological impairment. Perhaps more importantly, it’s a cleverly designed project that begs the question of whether voice recognition is a problem in young children, too, says Florida

State University psychology professor Richar d Wagner, who studies how to identify dyslexia early. Gabrieli says he plans to test 5-year-olds. Today, researchers know that children who are more phonologically aware when they enter kindergarten have a better shot at easy r eading. One way to check that: See how they’re able to delete sounds from words — ask them to quickly say “cowboy” without the “boy.” Wagner says a child who answers such tasks corr ectly pr obably is developing fine. One who fails doesn’t necessarily have problems but merely could have misunderstood or not wanted to play along. He says more clearcut methods are needed. Differences in brain-processing show up even in infants, says Patricia Kuhl of the University of Washington, who studies how babies learn language. A colleague in her lab tested how well babies could distinguish “ah” and “ee” sounds between ages 7 months and 11
months of age. Those who did best wound up with bigger vocabularies and better prereading skills, such as rhyming, by their fifth birthdays. That doesn’t mean they’ll go on to experience dyslexia, but it does show how very early development can play a role in readingreadiness. But Kuhl says the voice-recognition study has broader implications for brain science. It shows that for split-second recognition, the brain’s socialoriented right side works together with the speech-perception region of the left brain. People with dyslexia apparently are missing out on some of that interaction. That interaction, too, begins to appear early. At age 7 months, babies listening to recordings of their native language can recognize if there’s a change in speakers, but they miss that speaker change if they’re listening to a foreign language, she says. Scientists now have to figure out that neural wiring to learn how it goes awry.

NA T I O N A L BRIEFS CHELIOS TO JOIN U.S. HOCKEY HOF
Chris Chelios hasn’t completely closed the door on a comeback. Sure, the longtime NHL defenseman is 49 years old. And yes, he sat out all of last season. But pulling the plug on his playing days is something he just can’t bring himself to do. “I’m not going to ever say that,” Chelios said with a chuckle. His retirement last year did pave the way for this: Chelios was selected for induction into the United States Hockey Hall of Fame on Monday, joining former NHL stars Keith Tkachuk and Gary Suter. Philadelphia Flyers founder and current owner Ed Snider and play-by-play announcer Mike “Doc” Emrick also were selected. The formal induction will take place this fall. Chelios played 26 NHL seasons with Montreal, Chicago, Detroit and Atlanta. He left the NHL after the 2009-10 season as the alltime leader in games played by a defenseman (1,651). He also was part of three Stanley Cup championships. Tkachuk had a stellar career in his own right, playing for nearly two decades and becoming one of just four American-born players to score 500 career NHL goals. He also was a fivetime All-Star and a four-time Olympian. Suter spent most of his 17 seasons with Calgary and helped the Flames to a Stanley Cup title in 1989. Snider helped introduce generations of Philly fans to hockey with a successful bid to bring an expansion team to the city. A familiar voice in hockey, Emrick has been behind the microphone for 13 Stanley Cup finals. He also called the gold-medal game between the U.S. and Canada at the 2010 Vancouver Olympics.

Randy Moss hangs up the cleats Roswell Daily Record
MANKATO, Minn. (AP) — Randy Moss is calling it a career after 13 seasons in the NFL as one of the most dynamic and polarizing players the league has ever seen. Moss’s agent, Joel Segal, said Monday that the receiver was considering offers from several teams, but made the decision to retire. Segal declined to comment specifically on the offers, instead saying his 34-year-old client felt the time was right to step away. “Randy has weighed his options and considered the offers and has decided to retire,” Segal said. If this indeed is the end for Moss, he leaves the game with some of the gaudiest statistics ever posted by a receiver. His 153 touchdowns are tied with Terrell Owens for second on the career list, and he’s also fifth in yards (14,858) and tied with Hines Ward for eighth in receptions (954). Those numbers, and his status as perhaps the best deep threat in NFL history, will make him a strong candidate for the Hall of Fame. But voters will also be weighing those numbers and his six Pro Bowl seasons against a history of boorish behavior and a penchant for taking plays off when he lost interest in the game. His career started with seven electric seasons with the Minnesota Vikings before he went dormant for two years in Oakland. He re-emerged as a force with the New England Patriots in 2007, hauling in a single-season record 23 TD passes from Tom Brady to help the Patriots reach the Super Bowl. Moss was traded back to the Vikings in October of last season, but the celebrated reunion lasted just four weeks. Fed up with his petulant behavior, Vikings coach Brad Childress cut Moss in November, a stunning move that played a role in the coach’s dismissal a few weeks later. Moss finished the season with eight games in Tennessee, but made little impact with the Titans. Segal said earlier this summer that the receiver was training hard and determined to prove to the doubters that he could still dominate the game like he had in the past. “Randy has been a great player for a long time,” said Bob Pruett, Moss’ college coach at

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — Maybe Brodrick Bunkley’s stay in Denver will last longer than his trip to Cleveland. The Broncos sent an undisclosed 2013 draft pick to Philadelphia on Monday for the defensive tackle whose trade to Cleveland for a 2012 fifthround pick over the weekend was scuttled. Bunkley reported to Cleveland but did not meet all the conditions of the trade and was reverted to the Eagles, who managed to find a new suitor in Denver. All trades are contingent on players passing physicals. Bunkley had an elbow injury last season. Eagles general manager Howie Roseman said Bunkley was surprised by the trade. “I think that he enjoyed it a lot here and I think part of the reason was this all shocked him,” Eagles
Stern: No reason to be encouraged
NEW YORK (AP) — David Stern returned to the bargaining table Monday and said “nothing” gave him reason for encouragement. And for that, the NBA Commissioner pointed the blame in one place. “I don’t feel optimistic about the players’ willingness to engage in a serious way,” Stern said. So the first meeting to include leadership from owners and players since the lockout began exactly a month ago produced nothing new — except blame. A downcast Stern, who long maintained he was optimistic during this collective bargaining process, said that was no longer the case. He added nothing had changed since the last meeting on June 30, hours before the old deal expired, and said he doesn’t feel players are bargaining in good faith. Players contend that although owners insist they See NBA LABOR, Page B3

Tseng gets No. 5
Yani Tseng holds up the championship trophy after winning the Women’s British Open for her fifth career major championship, Sunday.
Tseng youngest to 5 major titles CARNOUSTIE, Scotland (AP) — Judging by the record books, Yani Tseng is 10 years ahead of Annika Sorenstam. The 22-year -old Taiwanese won the Women’s British Open for the second straight year Sunday, beating Brittany Lang by four strokes and becoming the youngest player — male or female — to capture a fifth major title. Sorenstam was 32 when she won the 2003 LPGA Championship for her fifth major. Tiger Woods was 24 when he won his fifth at the 2000 PGA Championship. “It’s so great making history on this golf course, and I feel wonderful right now,” said Tseng, who is ranked No. 1 and won the LPGA Championship last month. “I hope to keep winning. Next year there are another four majors and I will try and organize and keep working hard.” Tseng became only the third player to win consecutive British titles, joining Sherri Steinhaurer (1998, 1999) and Debbie Massey (1980, 1981). Tseng shot a 3-under 69 to finish at 16-under 272. She trailed third-round leader Caroline Masson of Germany by two strokes entering the final round. Masson closed with a 78 and tied for fifth. “I wish to win more, but I am really happy,” Tseng said. “I think in my mind I say, wow, five-times major. I never think about that. It just feels really very special.” Lang shot a 67 to finish at 276, one ahead of Sweden’s Sophie Gustafson (68). South Korea’s Amy

Jason Taylor rejoins Dolphins
MIAMI (AP) — Jason Taylor seeks a few more sacks, and he plans to get them with the Miami Dolphins. The NFL’s active career sacks leader, preparing for his 15th season, signed Monday with the Dolphins. He became a free agent when the New York Jets released him in March. Taylor, who turns 37 on Sept. 1, spent his first 11 seasons with the Dolphins and has kept a home in South Florida. He played for Washington in 2008, rejoined the Dolphins in 2009 and played last year for their biggest rivals, the Jets. Taylor’s return to the Dolphins was announced on the Facebook page for his foundation. Hours later, he held a news conference at the team’s stadium before an evening practice there. Former Dolphins teammate Dan Marino tweeted, “Welcome back to Miami (hash)99.” A year ago, Taylor had hoped for an offer to remain with the Dolphins, but he clashed with football czar Bill Parcells, who has since departed. Taylor maintained a good relationship with Miami coach Tony Sparano. Taylor’s desire to keep playing is driven in large part by wanting to play in a Super Bowl. Last year he reached the playoffs for the first time in nine years, and the Jets’ loss to Pittsburgh in the AFC championship game left him fighting back tears. The linebacker-defensive end was also disappointed to have only five sacks in 2010. That increased his career total to 132 1⁄2, which tied him with Lawrence Taylor and Leslie O’Neal for eighth on the career list. He played in all 16 games for the Jets, including five as a starter. The six-time Pro Bowler holds Dolphins career records for sacks (124), opponents’ fumble recoveries (27), fumble returns for

touchdowns (6), defensive touchdowns (9) and interceptions by a defensive lineman (7). His best season was in 2006, when he was the NFL defensive player of the year. Taylor will provide locker-room leadership, and perhaps much more. He’ll likely spell outside linebacker Koa Misi in passing situations and line up on the flank opposite Cameron Wake, who had a breakout season with 14 sacks last year. Conveniently, the Dolphins’ No. 99 was unassigned.
Ready or not, Cowboys’ Owusu-Ansah at free safety
SAN ANTONIO (AP) — Akwasi OwusuAnsah was a small college cornerback recovering from shoulder surgery when he joined the Dallas Cowboys as a rookie last year. Once healthy, he played mostly special teams until getting hurt again. With the lockout keeping him off the practice field all summer, plus a new coordinator and a new playbook to learn, Owusu-Ansah showed up at training camp pretty much starting over in his NFL career. He also found himself starting at free safety. His promotion is strictly by default, as the Cowboys are scrambling to find a veteran starter. For now, the job belongs to OwusuAnsah and he’s trying to make the most of it. “When they put the depth chart up, I was No. 1, and they expect me to hold higher standards,” he said. “I’ve just got to go out there, embrace the opportunity, work hard every day and compete.” While the front office keeps searching, Owusu-Ansah is progressing slowly but surely. The free safety is expected to call out coverages and signal for alignment changes to fellow defensive backs, but the first few days of practice, Owusu-Ansah was silent. He finally felt confident enough to bark out some changes on Sunday. Alas, he also got burned several times in two-minute drills. Back on the plus side, the 6-foot, 210pounder filled the hole on a running play and leveled a hit that drew some oohs and aahs from the crowd. “He’s raw, he’s got a ways to go,” secondary coach Dave Campo said. “He’s not ready to play right now, I can tell you that. But he’s out there. He’s kind of learning as he goes.” Owusu-Ansah’s best ability is speed. He can cover a lot of ground quickly, which is why he’s already someone to watch on special teams. He averaged 21.7 yards on 25 kickoff returns last season. A fourth-round pick from Indiana (Pa.) in 2010, his various injuries didn’t give him much chance to learn the defense. Less than a week into camp, he estimates he’s already played more at safety than he did all of last season. Alan Ball was the starting free safety last year, and could be a last resort this season. How he did last year is best summed up by the fact the Cowboys want him to be their fourth cornerback this season. (He can’t practice at any position just yet because he was a free agent when the lockout began. He re-signed quickly, but is in a holding pattern like all veteran signees.) Dallas expected to have a veteran signed by now. Jerry Jones said his pursuit of cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha didn’t take him out of the running for any of the safeties that have signed elsewhere. Considering how much those guys got, it’s possible the Cowboys are waiting for the asking price to come down. Meanwhile, that leaves likely backup Owusu-Ansah on the first team. It keeps him busy enough that he’s been able to avoid all the talk about who the Cowboys might get. “By the time you get to your room, you’re looking at your playbook and going to sleep,” he said. Four decades ago, the Cowboys experimented at free safety with another converted cornerback from a small school whose best attribute, at first, was returning kicks. Cliff Harris wound up on the NFL’s all-decade team for the 1970s and in the club’s Ring of

Honor. He’s glad to hear that Owusu-Ansah is getting this kind of valuable playing time during training camp. Whether he’s ready or not, everyone will find out right away whether he’s a keeper. “This is the best way — throwing in a guy to see if he can perform,” Harris said. “Test him under fire to see if he makes it.” Harris had the advantage of an extended training camp his rookie season. It included six games. So he had a big head start when the veterans arrived. While Owusu-Ansah lacks that, Harris said the fact Dallas has a new coordinator and a new playbook should put youngsters and veterans closer to even — everyone is learning at the same time. Harris’ best advice is for Owusu-Ansah to keep making a mark on special teams. “You want to do everything you can and play as many positions as you can,” he said. “That’s how you become valuable.” The preseason opener is a little over a week away. “He’s going to get an opportunity to show what he can do,” Campo said. “Hopefully he’ll improve enough. He’s got a chance. The thing he’s missing most is experience.” Notes: CB Mike Jenkins suffered a slight neck injury during the afternoon practice Monday, but is expected to be OK. ... Coach Jason Garrett ended Monday’s afternoon practice early, and gave players Tuesday off.... Receivers coach Jimmy Robinson remained away from the field, recovering from his jarring hit by Teddy Williams during a punt return drill Saturday. He could return Wednesday.
Stallings becomes latest rookie to win on PGA Tour
WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W.Va. (AP) — Needing a birdie on the 168-yard 18th hole to get into a playoff at the Greenbrier Classic, Scott Stallings remembered the approach shot he hit from the same distance back on No. 11. Same club. Same result. He sent a 9-iron shot 5 feet from the pin on the final hole and made the putt, joining Bill Haas and Bob Estes in sudden death tied at 10-under par Sunday on the Old White TPC course. Luckily for Stallings, the playoff headed right back to the 18th. Another 9 iron. Another pin-seeker. The PGA Tour rookie curled in a 7-foot putt after Haas and Estes missed their birdie tries, giving the 26-year-old Stallings his first tour win and securing his spot in the FedEx Cup playoffs. “When Bob missed, I was kind of shocked a little bit and had to regroup and stand over it where I knew I had a chance to win,” Stallings said. “I was tired. It’s been a long week. It’s been an emotional week. I just closed my eyes right before, when I was reading the putt, and just took a deep breath and visualized the ball going in the hole. “After the ball went I don’t really know what happened. Everything is kind of a blur.” So much for visualization. For the record, he flipped his putter after the putt dropped, high-fived and hugged his caddie, collected the tournament trophy, the winner’s jacket and a $1.08 million check. The prize was nice, but Stallings was more excited about moving from 88th to 26th on the FedEx Cup points list. The top 125 qualify for the playoffs starting in late August. A native of Worcester, Mass., and diehard Red Sox fan, he’ll likely realize one of his biggest goals to play in the Deutsch Bank Championship, the second stop in the FedEx Cup playoffs outside of Boston. The top 100 in the points standings after the Barclays, the first playoff stop, will qualify. In just its second year, the Greenbrier Classic produced another dramatic finish. Stuart Appleby shot 59 in last year’s final round, including a birdie on the last hole to beat Jeff Overton by a stroke. The course was lengthened more than 200 yards for this
Roswell Daily Record year’s tournament and the greens were reseeded and firm, giving some golfers fits. Even Stallings, who overcame his early blunders to become the sixth rookie to win on tour this year. It secured a spot for him in this week’s Bridgestone Invitational. Estes and Haas each earned $528,000. Haas got his fourth top-10 finish of the season and improved to 12th in the FedEx standings. The 45-year-old Estes missed out on his first tour win since 2002 and fifth overall. Estes sat out the first three months of the year because of a wrist injury and was playing in just his seventh tournament. “I felt like I did everything exactly right,” Estes said. “I just didn’t make the birdie putt on 18.” Jimmy Walker (68), Andres Romero (65), Brendon de Jonge (66), Cameron Tringale (67) and Gary Woodland (69) finished at 9 under.
Browne makes few mistakes to win US Senior Open
TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) — Back when he was just another kid with big dreams and not so much game, Olin Browne and his thengirlfriend used to go to a hardscrabble par-3 course nearby and imagine what it would be like to win a national championship. Now Browne and his wife, Pam, know. The 52-year-old journeyman captured the biggest victory of his life Sunday, holding off Mark O’Meara down the stretch to win the U.S. Senior Open by three strokes. “This goes back a long way for us,” Browne said of the aspirations he and Pam had first considered some 30 years ago. Avoiding major mistakes, Browne had pars on the first seven holes. After a bogey dropped him into a tie with O’Meara, he played the last 10 holes in 1 under, while O’Meara made two costly bogeys. “I guess from the middle of the back nine on it became a match-play situation, and I’ve got zero experience in match play,” Browne said, chuckling about his 0-1 record in headto-head competition. “But it’s about putting your ball in play, keeping it out of the junk. The bottom line is minimize your mistakes, maximize your effort, and that’s all you can do.” After Browne rolled in an anticlimactic 30foot birdie putt on the final hole to touch off a loud roar from the large gallery ringing the green, the usually stoic Browne raised his arms in triumph. He had gone 141 consecutive tournaments since his last victory at the 2005 Deutsche Bank. His even-par 71 followed rounds of 64, 69 and 65 and left him at 15-under 269. Browne said he struggled with nerves on the front side, but still was able to sidestep any gaffes. He had made 15 birdies and two eagles to blitz the field and take a two-stroke lead into the final round. But in the last 18 holes, he played within himself and was content to craft pars while everyone else tried to catch him. O’Meara, winner of the 1998 Masters and British Open, caught up but couldn’t hang on. “This is a huge victory for him,” O’Meara said. “I know it’s his first win out here on the Champions Tour. It’s a major championship. You look at the leaderboard, there’s a lot of quality players up there at the top of the leaderboard. I think Olin should be very proud of himself.” Mark Calcavecchia shot a 69 and was alone in third at 273. Ageless Hale Irwin had a 68 was another shot back along with Joey Sindelar (70). Peter Senior (71) was at 275, with Corey Pavin (69) and Michael Allen (70) another stroke off the pace. The group at 277 included Steve Pate (68), John Huston (69), Nick Price (70) and defending champion Bernhard Langer (70).

Marshall. “He’s choosing this on his own terms and I think that’s good. If that’s what he wants to do, that’s what he should do.” Throughout his career, Moss earned the reputation as one of the most dangerous players in the game, when he wanted to be. His combination of size, speed and intelligence has rarely been seen for a player at his position, and he deserves some credit for the influx of Cover 2 defenses throughout the NFL that were designed in large part to prevent Moss from burning them down the field. Trouble off the field in high school prevented Moss from attending Notre Dame or Florida State, so he landed at Marshall and

scored 54 touchdowns in two electrifying seasons with the Thundering Herd. The off-field questions hurt Moss in the 1998 draft. He fell to the Vikings at pick No. 21 and he spent the next seven years making every GM in the league who passed on him regret it. He scored 17 touchdowns as a rookie to help the Vikings reach the NFC title game and only once failed to score at least 10 TDs in a season in his first tour with the team. He also got into several controversies along the way, bumping a traffic cop in downtown Minneapolis, squirting a referee with a water bottle during a game and leaving the field early in a game against Washington, just to name a few. Sensing a change of scenery was needed, the Vikings traded Moss to Oakland in 2005, where he
Yang (67) was fourth. Lang was tied for sixth entering the final day, eight behind Masson. She picked up one stroke by the turn but the American bagged four birdies at Nos. 11, 12, 14 and 17. “I made some really big par putts early on, and from then on played fairly flawless golf,” Lang said. Tseng dropped a shot at the first hole with three putts, missing a 3-footer for par. She birdied the third with a pitching wedge to 2 feet and the long sixth with a chip to 5 feet. By the turn, she was in command. She was just short of the green off the tee at the par -4 11th and took two putts for a birdie, then dropped a shot at two straight holes. She hit an 8-iron over the back of the green at 12 and then hit the pin off the tee on the short 13th but her ball stopped at the edge of a bunker. She stood in the sand to play her second shot. Tseng birdied the long 14th and finished with two birdies, holing from 20 feet on the 17th and hitting a majestic 9-iron to 3 feet at the last. “I was a little nervous before the start, but then I hit a good tee shot and
spent two quiet seasons before his career was revived in New England. Vikings fans were euphoric at the news of his retur n last season, but things soured in a hurry. He caught 13 passes for 174 yards and two touchdowns in four games back in purple, clashed with Childress in the locker room and tur ned some teammates off with his poor treatment of a team caterer toward the end of his run. He hugged former Patriots teammates after a Vikings loss, and then bizarrely stepped to a podium to fawn over the Patriots, criticize the Vikings for ignoring his strategic advice, and announce his plan to interview himself the rest of the season instead of letting reporters do it. Next stop, Tennessee, where he caught just six passes in eight games.
I felt good,” Tseng said. “I feel that, having been in this position in a major a few times before, I am getting more mature and can handle the pressure better.” Masson dropped four shots in the first three holes of her closing nine. She finished at 9 under with local favorite Catriona Matthew, the 2009 champion, who had a double-bogey 6 on the final hole. Sweden’s Anna Nordqvist tied for seventh at 280 with South Koreans Sun Young Yoo, Na Yeon Choi and Inbee Pak. American Stacy Lewis had a 68 to rally to a 281. Sweden’s Maria Hjorth was at 282 after a 68 and Americans Katie Futcher and Cristie Kerr were in a group a stroke further back. Futcher equaled the best round of the week with a 64, including an eagle at the 14th, followed by three birdies. Kerr had four birdies for a 68 to finish at 5 under. Paula Creamer dropped five strokes in the first five holes to be out in 40, then dropped three more on the back nine for a 79. Brittany Lincicome shot 73 to finish at 287 as did first-round leader Meena Lee, who closed with a 74 after opening with a 65 Thursday.

general manager Howie Roseman said. “He was a first-round pick. I think he thought he’d be here for his whole career. I think he liked the kind of the energy that’s going on here and he wanted to be a part of it.” Bunkley had six sacks in 76 games in Philadelphia. He became expendable when the Eagles signed for mer Packers defensive lineman Cullen Jenkins. Bunkley was picked 14th overall in the first round of the 2006 draft out of Florida State. He was a three-year starter before sharing time last year in Philadelphia, where he had six sacks

Tuesday, August 2, 2011 and 144 tackles in his five seasons. Bunkley isn’t the only former first-rounder the Broncos acquired Monday. They also signed defensive end Derrick Harvey, a for mer Florida star whose production never matched his potential after the Jacksonville Jaguars selected the defensive MVP of the 2006 Bowl Championship Series title game with the eighth overall pick in 2009. Harvey tallied eight sacks in three seasons with the Jaguars, where he posted 88 career tackles and started 32 of 47 games, playing both right and left defensive end.

are committed to making a deal, their proposals say otherwise. Neither side offered a new one Monday, exactly three months before the Nov. 1 scheduled opening of the regular season that seems more in doubt than ever. Stern and Deputy Commissioner Adam Silver were joined by San Antonio owner Peter Holt, who heads the labor relations committee, and Board of Governors chairman and Minnesota owner Glen Taylor represented ownership. Players’ association Executive Director Billy Hunter, and President Derek Fisher and Vice President Theo Ratliff, both of the Lakers, attended along with union attorneys. “It’s a tough position to be in,” Fisher said. “I think Peter, Glen Taylor, Commissioner Stern, Adam Silver are articulating certain things in the room, expressing their desire to get a deal done, but where their proposal lies makes it hard to believe that. “So we’re continuing to try to work around what’s been said and really focus on the deal on the table, and right now we’re still a very, very long way from getting a deal done.” Owners are seeking massive changes to the league’s salary structure, saying they lost $300 million last season and hundreds
through last season. He’ll be looking to jump-start his career as a backup in Denver, where the Broncos are retur ning to the 4-3 scheme with Elvis Dumervil and Robert Ayers as the starters and Von Miller, the second overall pick in the draft, rushing the passer from the outside linebacker spot. The Broncos also resigned unrestricted free agent Marcus Thomas, who has played in every game during his four years in Denver. The Broncos also signed tight ends Daniel Fells and Dante Rosario. To make room, they waived safety Nick Polk, cornerback James Rogers and wide receiver Marshall Williams.
of millions more in each year of the previous CBA, which was ratified in 2005. Players have acknowledged losses but dispute they’re as large as owners say, and have balked at the league’s desire to institute a hard salary cap, slash salaries and reduce the maximum length of contracts. That has created the possibility of lost games because of a work stoppage for only the second time in league history. The 1998-99 season was reduced to 50 games, and players have been preparing for the potential of something similar, with many saying they would consider playing overseas to have a paycheck. The NFL is back to work after settling its lockout that lasted about four months without missing any regular-season games. A work stoppage of similar length guarantees the NBA loses games, but the NBA’s issues seem to go much deeper than the NFL’s. “From where we sit, we’re looking at a league that was the most profitable in sports that became more profitable by virtue of concessions from their players,” Stern said, “and with an average salary of $2 million. Our average salary is 5 million, we’re not profitable and we just can’t seem to get over the gap that separates us.” The central issue remains the division of basketball revenues. Players were guaranteed 57 percent under the old agreement and the league says it cannot address its losses without a significant change to that number.

The Stars Show the Kind of Day You’ll Have: 5-Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3-Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult
CLASSIFIEDS CANCER (June 21-July 22) Your creativity soars. Return calls; schedule meetings. If there is a last-minute snafu, don’t worry about it. At this moment, one needs to be easygoing and confirm plans and statements. Avoid taking comments personally. Tonight: Run an errand or two on the way home. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Curb a need to be possessive or have certain matters go your way. It is quite clear that you cannot control everything and everyone. Don’t even try to think that way. Allow others to assume that they might do better than you. In the long run, the results will be better. Tonight: Buy a coveted item on the way home. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) You have great ideas, but you might discover you have difficulty right now communicating the exact nature of a concept and the expected end results. Try as you may, count on having this conversation again another day. Tonight: Do what feels right. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) Know when to step back and make room for others. You have something on your mind that might be bothering you. Take this extra time to help you clear your head. Talk to several trusted friends. Tonight: Take some time off. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) Where your friends are clearly is where you want to be. Let go and relax more. A meeting could be confusing. There doesn’t appear to be any unity where you once thought there was some. Relax. Much can change. Tonight: Where the crowds are. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) Others know you mean well
ARIES (March 21-April 19) IGAR What was getting clearer or was perfectly clear dons a haze once more. See how you can change your course if you are uncomfortable. You enter a period for a few weeks that favors exploring your options. No excuses! Tonight: Try a new stress-buster. YOUR HOROSCOPE TAURUS (April 20-May 20) Ideas keep popping up. Keep a notebook to jot them down in. You might determine that some of these nuggets aren’t workable. At a later point, you might decide otherwise. Be especially clear and direct with others. Confirm any meetings. Tonight: Put together a favorite activity with a favorite person. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) Stay anchored, knowing that there could be a level of uproar or confusion today, and for a while. Getting uptight won’t help the situation. Learn different ways to gain more patience. Tonight: Only at home.

Roswell Daily Record
DEAR ABBY: I am writing to respond to “Old Mama in Washington State” (June 1), whose pregnancy at 40 is unwelcome to her husband and two teens. My parents had a “bonus baby” when they were in their early 40s. I was 17 and my brother was 13 when we found out. It was hard for us to accept at first. I was grossed out by the idea of my parents having sex, and I was afraid people would think the baby was mine after she was born. All our worries disappeared when we first laid eyes on our baby sister. I love her to death, and she is lucky to have my brother as her protector. It was a good thing that we were nearly 18 years apart, because I got the benefits of a sister without having to share a room! Now, at 12, she’s a fabulous friend to my 8-year -old and will soon be big enough to baby-sit the 4-year-old and the baby. I’m sure “Mama’s” family will become more accepting over time. When they see that baby, they’ll know their family is finally complete. PROUD BIG SISTER IN CHICAGO

DEAR BIG SISTER: Thank you for writing. I received a mountain of mail in response to that letter. Readers were enthusiastic in expressing their firsthand experiences being families with unexpected pregnancies. Read on:
DEAR ABBY: I was pregnant with twins at 45 and my thenl8-year -old daughter was furious with me, going as far as banning me from her high school graduation. It hurt, and I agonized over the decision, but in the end I waddled in anyway. I’m so glad I did. Fast-forward: The twins are almost 3 now, and they worship their older sister and brother, and the feeling is mutual. As soon as “Mama’s” husband sees the baby, I’m sure he’ll be over the moon as well. Yes, the future looks exhausting, but it’s well worth it. This

DEAR ABBY: I have to agree with “Mama’s” family. Pregnant at 40 is not a miracle, and she’s deluded to think so. I was born when my mother was 42. I’m 16 years younger than my oldest sibling, and all my cousins are older. It is hard growing up with no siblings to play with and no cousins to really talk to because they’re all in high school and don’t want a “kid” tagging along. I felt unwanted most of my childhood. It gets better for a while, but then you watch your parents age and die. I did not have the kind of relationship with my grandparents that my siblings did. And because I was born so many years behind everyone, I missed out on most of the fun family times. Please tell “Mama” not to take it personally, to be sure her new addition is paid attention to and assured that he/she is much loved and wanted.

Dear Heloise: My friends and I still read books (instead of the new ereaders), and they often borrow books from me. Here is how I remember who has which hardcover book: I remove the dust cover from the book and write inside the name of the borrower.

Dear Heloise: I wear and layer fragrances, especially in the summer. I’ve noticed that perfumes are getting pricey! My mother shared this hint with me: Corresponding men’s fragrances USUALLY are cheaper than women’s. I purchase the men’s body wash and lotion in my favorite fragrance, and the spray perfume or cologne in the women’s. I figure I am saving, and no one is the wiser!
