SANDWICH, England (AP) — About the only predictable part of this British Open is the weather. The biggest surprise is the list of contenders for the claret jug. The weather was wild again Saturday, shifting from a raging wind to a gentle sea breeze, from a driving rain to brilliant sunshine, and leaving most of the field wet, tired and feeling as though they got the short end of the draw.

Rehab Center transfer hits more snags JESSICA PALMER RECORD STAFF WRITER



The South Roswell Community Center Planning Committee has reported that a series of delays from the General Services Department has halted efforts to transfer the old New Mexico Rehabilitation Center from the Department of Health to the Regional Housing Authority. The SRCC would provide


medical and counseling services plus housing for veterans and the disabled, along with office space for such nonprofit organizations as the Roswell Literacy Council. The Daily Record called the GSD’s director of the Property Services Division, Chuck Gara, who declined to comment on the matter, instead delegating the responsibility to Tim Korte of media relations. When Korte was asked

Being creative, dedicated, and having a way with sand all came in handy during the 21st annual sand sculpture contest at Bottomless Lakes State Park, Saturday. At the end of the day, the most creative sand sculpture was awarded for a sand castle titled “Tron City.” Based on the movie “T ron,” the sand castle’s anonymous creator made ample use of available materials, such as twigs from nearby bushes that were used as the castle’s “trees.” “It was a pretty creative, pretty elaborate sand sculpture,” said Park Ranger Blake Ingram.

A minister’s wife visiting First Presbyterian Church of Roswell Friday afternoon regaled a wide-eyed American audience with harrowing and inspiring tales about religious and gender discrimination in Lahore, Pakistan. About 30 area women listened intently to Hima Abel, 33, a Pakistani national, as she told stories about living as a Christian in a predominately Muslim country, and operating a Presbyterian church with

her husband the Rev. Dr. Majid Abel, in an Islamic Republic. “Christians in Pakistan, we are second-rate citizens,” Abel said. “The law doesn’t treat us equally ... Christians are infidels.” To make her point, Abel pointed to the case of Asia Bibi, a Pakistani Christian woman who was sentenced to death by hanging by a Pakistani court for blastphemy for allegedly violating Section 295-C of the Pakistani Penal Code that prohibits blasphemy against any recognized religion. Bibi’s crime was

allowing her hands to touch the water in a communal bucket, making it “unclean,” Abel said. She noted that Bibi’s Muslim coworkers refused to drink the water, and in the argument that ensued, Bibi had allegedly said that the prophet Muhammed had “worms in his mouth before he died,” meaning he was not the true prophet. “In (some parts of ) Pakistan, this is how Christians are treated,” Abel said. “If a Christian person comes into a restaurant ...

Environmental groups, dairy producers reach agreement EMILY RUSSO MILLER RECORD STAFF WRITER

Life might be a little easier for the 38 dairy owners in Chaves County after a dairy settlement was reached earlier this week, experts in the industry say. Under the new agreement, dairy owners will now be able to appeal permitting decisions about monitoring wells, synthetic lining and other measures required to prevent groundwater contamination, directly to the New Mexico Environmental Department’s Ground Water Quality Bureau’s Water Quality Control Commission. “We’ve never had that access before,” Alva Carter Jr., chairman of the Dairy Industry Group for a Clean Environment, said in a telephone interview. Before, appeals would get lost in the red tape of the New Mexico Environment Department, said Walter Bradley, a Dairy Farmers of America representative and former New Mexico lieutenant gover nor. Oftentimes, he said, when dairy owners appealed decisions about how many monitoring wells were needed on their property, the NMED withdrew its original objections, forcing dairy owners back to square one — unsure of how many monitoring wells were required

on their property, and with thousands of dollars of legal fees to pay. “It was just a round robin,” Bradley said. “And so now we’ve stripped that ability for (NMED) to withdraw drafts of objections to permitting decisions.” The new deal was brokered Monday by NMED between environmental and dairy industry groups, including DIGCE, Amigos Bravos, Caballo Concerned Citizens and the Sierra Club Rio Grande Chapter. The settlement was reached after DIGCE appealed the Dairy Rule adopted by the WQCC in December 2010. The agreement states that dairies will still be mandated to install monitoring wells to regulate discharges to ground water at New Mexico dairy facilities, but will only require lining of lagoons for new dairies or for those whose impoundments have leaked, according to a statement released by NMED. Area dairy owners say they hope the settlement will end confusion over monitoring well requirements. Philip Troost, coowner of Cottonwood Springs Dairy in Lake Arthur, said one NMED representative would tell him one thing one day, then a different NMED representative would tell him another thing the next day.

“It was so chaotic and frustrating and confusing,” he said, adding that he ended up paying $800,000 out-of-pocket for a waste water lagoon and a run-off pump that he was told he needed in 2006. “They were going off the cuff and saying ‘You should do this,’ and in the meantime, I’ve had to build (a plastic lined lagoon) that holds 125,000 gallons of water to keep my permit.” Now with the new settlement in place, he says he is actually looking forward to working with NMED to figure out how to keep his dairy operating with the new rules to regulate discharges. “I can’t wait for them to come out and tell me what to do,” he said. “I’m proud of our current administration for standing up for agriculture. That hasn’t been done for a long time.” NMED Ground Water Quality Bureau Chief Bill Olson said the amended Dairy Rule will now go to the WQCC to consider the changes at a public hearing. If approved, the new rules will take ef fect 30 days after being filed with the State Records Center. The process will likely be completed before the end of the year.

suggested him to Griffin. “He’s a veteran actor,” Griffin said of Farley. “He’s a really, really funny guy.” Jim Spence, one of the executive producers for the movie, said Farley was one of the last major additions to the cast. “What they were really looking for were people with comedic timing,” Spence said. According to the “Roswell FM” website, Farley is the late Chris Farley’s younger brother. He has been cast alongside Adam Sandler and David Spade several times. Other actors in the movie

include Brandon Fehr, Mirelly Taylor, Brian Tee, Don Stark and Hugh Elliot. Griffin said Farley’s character, Ralph Cheeks, is both comical and villainous. “He ... presents a problem because he doesn’t care about the store,” Griffin said. “Roswell FM” will be filmed on location mainly in Roswell. The movie’s ice cream shop will be the old Kaleidoscoops building on Hobbs Street.

Film industry relieved by recent Martinez moves Roswell Daily Record

ALBUQUERQUE (AP) — New Mexico’s burgeoning film industry has a bit of a “hangover” from the governor’s high-profile attempts to cut a tax rebate program that made the state a favored alternative to Hollywood and New York. But industry leaders say the gover nor’s recent appointment of a wellrespected insider to head the state film office and a commitment to pay all applications filed before the new fiscal year — and rebate cap — took effect July 1 have eased some of the uncertainty that had moviemakers scouting alternate locations. “Certainty is the most important thing in business,” said Jon Hendry, a union agent for film workers. “Right now we are in a very slow period, slower

When challenged by another priest who asked him, “don’t you know it’s a sin to steal?” Braun replied it was a greater sin to let people starve. “He was a true hero,” Cave said. The author has an almost lifelong interest in history. She described a visit to her mother’s side of the family in Huntsville, Ala., when she was 12 years old. She attended a Confederate ball there and one of the older men asked her to dance. He said to Cave, “I was with (Gen. Robert E. Lee) in Virginia.” Cave said the comment

gave her chills. “Suddenly, I just realized, history is everywhere. History is all around us.” Fascinated by the subject, Cave went on to get undergraduate and graduate degrees in history. She has been a historian and a teacher, but has gained the most prominence as an author. She has won several awards including the New Mexico Press Women’s Zia Award.

New Mexico is the swingingest state A4 Sunday, July 17, 2011


SANTA FE — Why has the presidential race already started in New Mexico? We were freed from negative political ads only last November. And they are already starting again? Why? It’s because New Mexico is important. We have only five electoral votes out of 535. That’s less than 1 percent. But sometimes elections are won by that narrow a margin. And New Mexico’s votes count. That’s an odd statement to make. Everyone’s vote counts. Right? Wrong. The anachronistic Electoral College method of voting for president means that in states dominated by either political party, the minority party voters might as well not bother voting for president. Electoral votes are winner take all. So if it is a foregone conclusion that one party’s candidate is going to win, the other candidate’s supporters might as well not vote. If every vote counted, Al Gore would have beaten George W.




Bush in 2000. But Bush had more electoral votes. That’s the way this silly game is played. It doesn’t benefit either party but it surely can mess up a candidate’s day. In that 2000 election, Gore beat Bush by 366 votes in New Mexico. It was only the second time in our state’s almost 100-year history that we didn’t vote for the winner. But New Mexico’s vote was more representative of the nation’s vote than the Electoral College result was. So New Mexico is called a bellwether state. Despite having many differences from the nation as a whole, the way New Mexicans vote is more reflective of the nation’s

Roswell Daily Record

vote than is the vote of any other state. Why? We don’t really know. That is why Barack Obama had 24 campaign offices spread throughout New Mexico in 2008. It also may be why the movie “Swing Vote,” starring Kevin Costner, was set in New Mexico. Costner’s vote determined who would be president. It also is difficult to explain how New Mexico has its second candidate for president in two consecutive elections. Both Gov. Bill Richardson in 2008 and former Gov. Gary Johnson in this election felt they had a legitimate chance to win. Johnson says he still is confident of winning despite not being able to crack the 2 percent barrier in any national polls. He told Fox News last week that he is encouraged by recent polls of voters in states with presidential candidates.

The results show that Johnson is the only one of the candidates who has a positive popularity rating in their home state. Johnson’s popularity is 12 points higher than his unpopularity among those polled. In second place was Newt Gingrich of Georgia, whose unpopularity is 8 points higher than his popularity. Bringing up the rear is Michele Bachmann, whose unpopularity is 26 points higher than her popularity in Minnesota. She beat out Sarah Palin by one point for last place. The poll once again was conducted by Public Opinion Polling, which found a few weeks ago that Johnson is doing better than any other Republican candidate against President Obama in New Mexico. Public Opinion Polling was listed last year by the Wall Street Journal as being the second best national pollster in swing state races. So evidently they don’t have

a Johnson bias. Despite the pollster finding Johnson doing well against Obama among registered voters in New Mexico, the results flip when the vote is strictly among Republicans. Bachmann leads that poll by a fairly wide margin. The message of these two polls is that Johnson does better among independents and Democrats than he does among Republicans. So why doesn’t he switch parties? It is because he was a bigger budget cutter as New Mexico’s governor than were any of his gubernatorial counterparts across the nation. But Johnson’s position on social issues is he believes government has no more business interfering in people’s social lives than it does interfering with business and industry. It is very libertarian but it appears to be no-win for Johnson. (Write to Jay Miller at 3 La Tusa, Santa Fe, NM 87505; by fax at 9840982; or by e-mail at

Space exploration

As we live in Roswell, home to the most famous UFO incident of all time, it is not unusual for the topic of outer space to come up rather frequently. Today, however, instead of UFOs, our minds are focused on the lamentable decision to retire the space shuttle without a suitable replacement in the works. We always knew the space shuttle would not be around forever. Just about every machine ever invented eventually becomes obsolete. Either a better machine is created or the purpose for which the machine was designed becomes irrelevant. When it came to the space shuttle, we always believed its service would come to an end when a better space vehicle came along. It’s not like space was going to vanish or wind up as a pointless area of study. The advancement of science and technology is always a worthy cause. We won’t gloss over the shortcomings of the shuttle. It was way more expensive, used far less frequently and not nearly as reliable as promised. The two shuttle disasters also demonstrated it wasn’t as safe as we were led to believe. Those are all good arguments for a replacement for the shuttle, not a retreat from the role it performed. Our nation is taking a step backward by abandoning this area of space. While costly, the shuttle has also been invaluable in developing scientific advances which benefit us all. There is also the blow to our national pride to be considered. American astronauts will now have to rely on Russian space vehicles to get to the International Space Station. The irony of now having to rely on the people we were determined to surpass at any cost when it came to space travel is not lost on us. If there is a silver lining here, it’s that New Mexico may be in a position to benefit from this situation. Private rocket companies will take over the job of hauling supplies and astronauts to the space station in the coming years. If there is a developing trend of relying on the commercial space industry, then perhaps our state’s Spaceport America will be able to pick up some of that business.

DEAR DR. GOTT: My 75year -old grandpa has been having a great deal of difficulty walking for about a month. When he went to his doctor to find what was causing the problem, his doctor ordered an MRI of the brain, indicating ataxia as a diagnosis. I can’t understand what an MRI of the brain has to do with difficulties walking, and I sure don’t know what ataxia is. Can you fill in the blanks? DEAR READER: This peculiar sounding word implies a lack of coordination that occurs with voluntary movements such as walking. Speech, eye movement and swallowing can also be affected. A person might have difficulty speaking, stumble and fall for no apparent reason, or have difficulty

Religion and presidential politics

The Constitution is specific when it prohibits a “religious test” for “any office or public trust” — Article VI, Paragraph III That doesn’t mean that voters are prohibited from taking a person’s faith (or lack thereof) into account when deciding for whom they will vote. No law could stop them. Past elections have been decided when some Catholics voted for a Catholic politician because of their shared religion and Protestants voted against a Catholic because they did not share that faith. Now come two Mormons —



eating. Ataxia can develop rather slowly over an extended period of time or can suddenly appear, causing people such as you and your family great concern. Incessant ataxia commonly results from damage, loss of nerve cells, or degeneration to the portion of the brain that controls muscle coordination. Several conditions, including



Mitt Romney and Jon Huntsman — and two evangelical Christians — Tim Pawlenty and Michele Bachmann. There is confusion and division within once nearly solid evangelical ranks over what to do. Some evangelicals say they wouldn’t vote for a Mormon for president, even though

stroke, TIA (transient ischemic attack), tumor, head trauma, multiple sclerosis, alcohol abuse and cerebral palsy, can cause the symptoms. Some forms of the disorder are hereditary and result from being born with a defect in a specific gene that produces abnormal proteins. These proteins disrupt nerve cells, causing them to degenerate over time. Gene defects are progressive, and most will cause poor coordination. There are also metabolic forms of the disorder caused by poisons or side effects of drugs. Testing for ataxia might include blood work, a CT scan or MRI, or lumbar puncture. If the ataxia was acquired from a viral infection such as chicken pox, it will likely resolve on its

Romney and Huntsman seem, on the sur face, to fit with many of the political viewpoints of the majority of politically conservative Christians on social issues such as abortion and same-sex “marriage” (though Huntsman favors “civil unions” and Romney has been on both sides of this issue, as well as abortion, more than once). Does it really matter what faith a president or presidential candidate has, or should everyone, regardless of their religious background, focus on their competence to do the job? Shouldn’t the question

When appropriate, occupational, physical and speech therapy, as well as counseling to combat possible depression, allow a patient to remain as independent as possible and will work toward increasing mobility. A cane or walker might also help a person ambulate more easily. Your grandfather may test negative. If so, he should speak with his physician regarding possible intervention with a neurologist or other specialist so he can get to the bottom of the issue and learn how to resolve the issue or how best to cope with it. Good luck. Those readers who are interSee GOTT, Page A5

I would vote for a competent atheist who believed in issues I care about over the most conservative Christian or Orthodox Jew who lacks the experience, knowledge and vision to do a good job as president. Religion can and has been used as a distraction to dupe voters.

I really didn’t say everything I said OPINION II

Roswell Daily Record

“Ninety percent of the game is half mental.” What? That statement doesn’t even make sense. Don’t ask questions, it was said by Yogi Berra! This is just one of many quotes of “wisdom” by baseball great Yogi Berra, who apparently wasn’t too bright with numbers. He also once said “90 percent of short putts don’t go in.” Each of these quotes supports the premise that four out of three individuals are poor at fractions! New York Yankee great and Hall of Famer Yogi Berra is probably the most quoted athlete of all time. Mr. Berra is now 86 years old. As a player, coach or manager, he has participated in 21 World Series. Although he quit school after eighth grade, he went on to become one of the greatest catchers in the history of baseball. But today he is better known for his nonsensical quotes, also referred to as “Yogi-isms,” than his baseball greatness. There are more Yogi-isms out there than I have space for in this column. I want to dedicate today’s column to the Yogi-isms floating around out there. So let’s have some fun today and I’ll share a sampling of Mr. Berra’s world view. When Mickey Mantle and




Roger Maris hit back-to-back home runs for the umpteenth time, Mr. Berra said “It’s deja vu all over again.” On his way to the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, New York, in 1972, Mr. Berra was driving his family when he lost his way. He shared “We’re lost, but we are making good time.” Once, when his alarm didn’t go off, Mr. Berra woke up and said “If I didn’t wake up, I’d still be sleeping.” Again, poor with numbers, Yogi Berra quipped “I usually take a two-hour nap from 1 to 4.” Awakened by an early phone call, the caller said “I hope I didn’t wake you.” Yogi responded “Nah, I had to get up to answer the phone anyway.” Mr. Berra had his own unique philosophies on life. As a manager of the Yankees in 1964 in order to get his players’ attention he yelled at his players “You can observe a lot by watching.”

later revealed himself to be a standard liberal Democrat in virtually every category that mattered, from abortion and civil unions, to the economy, to weakening America’s defenses and image worldwide. What about Barack Obama’s self-declared Christian faith? He attended the Chicago church of the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, whose sermons frequently condemned America and contained what some took to be racial slurs. The president’s faith has not distinguished his positions on any issue that matters from that of a standard liberal Democratic secularist. If a candidate says faith is important, shouldn’t that faith take the person on a different path than what someone of little or no faith would propose? If not, what difference does

Another time during a practice he told his players “Pair up in threes.” Talking about inflation he quipped “A nickel ain’t worth a dime anymore.” When asked about a restaurant in his old St. Louis neighborhood he responded “Nobody goes there anymore. It is too crowded.” Following this train of thought Mr. Berra said “If people don’t wanna come out to the park, nobody’s gonna stop ’em.” When Johnny Bench broke Mr. Berra’s r ecor d for home runs by a catcher, Yogi Berra sent a telegram “Congratulations, I knew the record would stand until it was broken.” He once said about Don Larsen’s 1956 per fect game “It’s never happened in World Series history, and it hasn’t happened since.” Mr. Berra gave us a different view of a fork in the r oad by sharing “When you come to a fork in the road, take it.” He is credited with the brilliant statements “Never answer an anonymous letter” and “Always go to other people’s funerals, otherwise they won’t go to yours.” Asked if he wanted his pizza cut into four or eight slices he said “Four, I don’t think I can eat eight.” The Yogi-isms go on and on, “I

Nolan R yan once said of Mr. Berra, “If Yogi had gone to college, they would have made him talk clearer, but not better.” I guess we’ll never know if Mr. Ryan is correct. Looking forward to the days ahead, Mr. Berra uttered “The future isn’t what it used to be.” This is actually a correct statement any time it is made! And finally, Yogi Berra once said, “I really didn’t say everything I said.” You could pull a muscle in your mind trying to think this one through. When confronted with this quote, Mr. Berra said, “This was a comment I made when someone asked me about quotes that I didn’t think I said. Then again, I might have said ’em, but you never know.” What? Nevertheless, whether he actually said this quote or not, there remains a long list of Yogi-isms out

faith make and why should it be of concern to voters? Not every declared “believer” delivers on the expectations of evangelical voters. Even the “sainted” Ronald Reagan raised taxes, signed an amnesty measure and named two justices to the Supreme Court — Sandra Day O’Connor (now retired) and Anthony Kennedy — who voted to preserve the abortion status quo. And yet to this day, most evangelicals believe Reagan was one of our greatest presidents, though he rarely attended church. Carter regularly attended church and even taught Sunday school, but he came to be reviled by most conservative Christians. For evangelicals, the ideal presidential combination would be someone who has a deep faith and is willing to apply it to social, economic and defense issues. It shouldn’t matter whether Mormons believe in baptizing the dead, what undergarments they wear, or that they believe God was once a man like us. Neither


there. My challenge to you today is not to take life too seriously. If you make every decision a life or death decision, you will die many times. Lighten up! Look for the humor around you. God gave each of us a sense of humor as standard equipment for it to be used. I will close with a Yogi-ism shared when his team was in last place half way through the season, “It ain’t over until it’s over.” Mr. Berra’s 1973 New York Mets went on to win the division. Wherever you are in your life, remember that it isn’t over until it’s over. Go ahead, keep fighting with the days you have left and finish strong. Take your sense of humor along. Where you start is not nearly as important as how you finish because your life ain’t over until it is over. Just a thought ...

should it matter that an evangelical Christian believes in Armageddon, unless, of course, he (or she) wants to advance that day by dropping a nuclear bomb on our enemies, as Iran’s Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has threatened to do to the West. Now there is someone who combines his religion with political power, which should scare us all. The Bible, the guidebook for evangelicals, teaches that there are two kingdoms. Presidential candidates are running to head up a part of the earthly kingdom known as America. The job as head of the other Kingdom is taken. The duties and responsibilities of each should be kept separate. (Write to Cal Thomas at: T ribune Media Services, 2225 Kenmore Ave., Suite 114, Buffalo, N.Y. 14207.

Middle class on the chopping block

Dear Editor: To better explain what brought the American middle class to its knees, we must first understand how America’s middle class economy was created. In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, the American business model was changing from a local and regional entrepreneurial system to a larger more efficient and profitable corporate system. Initially, the public and more so the government were concerned about corporations’ ability to grow and swallow up other business, the word used at the time was “combining,” through merger and acquisition. Could a corporation grow large enough so as to control the American economy and potentially undermine the government? These fears soon subsided and for the next 75 years “Big Business” fueled the growth of America’s middle class, by providing jobs for people ranging from highly skilled to manual labor. America flourished. The brightest and best were now exiting academic institutions no longer interested in returning to the family business or starting a small local business from scratch. Instead they were looking for positions in larger corporations, relying on opportunity for advancement within the company, to provide homes and cars and education for their children. What happened? At some point American business saw that they were becoming less competitive in areas of industry. The corporation’s responsibility is to maximize profits for their investors and so the transition of moving American industry out of America into emerging foreign markets began. China and India are currently the world’s largest emerging middle classes. Manufacturing and labor costs are so low that the American worker can no longer compete. The cost to our quality of life. And so after three-quarters of a century business has turned its back on the American worker and moved on to a global economy or as George Bush Senior stated “a new world order.” It’s not like the corporate executives, economists or higher ups in government didn’t see it coming. They just neglected to prepare us for it, and there is no reversing it. At who’s expense? Over the period that G.W. Bush held of fice, America went fr om pr ojected surplus to a record $14.2 trillion in debt. Almost $4 trillion of that under the “W” Bush administration (for an in-depth analysis of America’s debt d u r i n g p r e s idential ter ms visit ebt_by_U.S._presidential_terms ). What to do ... What to do? Much like many individual Americans, we as a nation are at the point where our income to debt ratio is out of whack. How do we fix this? Well let’s see, if it were you or I we would first of all be required to stop spending beyond our means. T ake a second job to generate mor e income. Work with our creditors to get back on track. I have no problem with any of this. What I do have a problem with is why corporations, who recently were allowed the same status as American citizens, aren’t paying their taxes as the rest of us American citizens are expected to. As a matter of fact the r est of us pay in advance based on what our expected income might be, and the largest corporations pay none at all. Where’s the logic in this? The only way forward is a combination of cuts and revenue increases. All should be on the table. Politicians are always reluctant to cut close to home for fear of losing the next election. Their “cash Cows” are always more important than the opposition’s “Cash cows.” This men-

OPINION III tality is what has gotten us into the mess in the first place. And since politicians are great at defining, for every other American rather than themselves, what cuts are appropriate, I’d like to recommend a few cuts of my own. Let’s cut congressional pay in half. Let’s cut their medical benefits and let them pay for it out of pocket much like the 50 million Americans they have thrown under the bus. Let’s cut their pension plans so that when they leave Congress they have to work like the rest of us. Though these cuts would do little more than to allow politicians to share in the suffering that the American people they misrepresent in Washington are asked to do. Maybe if they had to share the pain of their constituents in a physical sense they may be more receptive to compromise. Fred Moran Chairman of the Democratic Party of Chaves County

The soul

Dear Editor: I just read the letter by Dan Parsons and I’m really surprised that Parsons would use the scriptur e in Matthew 10:28 to support the immortal soul idea. I’m not sure if he understands what the definition of “immortal” means. The Greek word a•than•nasi’a is formed by the negative prefix “a” followed by a form of the word for “death” (tha’na•tos). Thus, the basic meaning is “deathlessness,” and refers to the quality of life that is enjoyed, its endlessness and indestructibility. It cannot perish or be destroyed. Doesn’t he realize that the scripture he quoted said “fear him who is able to destroy soul and body in hell”? (Unfortunately, his poorly translated Bible used “hell” when the word Jesus used was “gehenna”). There are also other examples of the soul being destroyed: Joshua “destroyed all the souls” in Hazor (Joshua 11:11) “Indeed, any soul that does not listen to that Prophet will be completely destroyed from among the people.: (Acts 3:23). So you cannot say something is immortal, indestructible and then show a scripture that says the soul is “destroyed”! Then he uses the strangest reasoning by saying “if there is no immortal soul why would Christ need to come?” What is he talking about? If all the people from the beginning of time had immortal souls that upon their deaths automatically went either to heaven or to hell and this process would always continue, why would you need Jesus to give his life? How would his death change a process that had started with Adam and Eve and was continuing nicely without any help? Weren’t the good people already going to heaven? Was his death supposed to change that? Weren’t the bad people already going to hell? Parsons says you can’t come out of hell so wouldn’t Jesus’ death have no benefit to them? It just doesn’t make sense. But if all people die in payment of their sins, as Romans 6:23, they would stay asleep forever unless someone paid a ransom to bring them back to life. Jesus was that ransom. And because of that ransom, the dead (righteous and unrighteous) can be resurrected to life on Earth in the near future and some humans can actually be “purchased” by God to be resurrected to heaven. Doesn’t that make more sense? And finally, I agree with the Mesker letter (June 26), please, please spare us the weekly sermon. It is very clear that you see scriptures and you find a way to make them agree with you even if they say the opposite of what you believe. So to continue the debate is futile, completely, totally futile. Sincerely, Rachel Gilmore Roswell


Alien Chase

Dear Editor: I would like to take this opportunity to extend my heartfelt thanks to those members of the Roswell Runners Club who contributed much of their time and energy into making this, the 17th annual Alien Chase, the third most attended road race in Roswell history. We had 455 runners and walkers traversing the Spring River Corridor Trail, and due to the efforts of Dwain Brown, Ver non Dyer, Jim Humphreys, Mandy Owens, Dennis Pabst and Doris Callaway it went off without a hitch. (Save for the horse at the start line, but that’s another story) Also, thanks to Roswell Regional Hospital and Rod Schumacher for their continued support of one of the most visible of all the events at the UFO Festival since the first year in 1995. To our partners at the Roswell Parks and Recreation Department, we appreciate your continued assistance in promoting health and fitness in our community for kids of all ages. Thanks to Dick Bartlett, Clyde Mckee, Roy and Geoff Gunn, Elaine Mayfield, Mike and Carol Draeger, the Civic Center, Donna’s Ceramics, Peppers Grill and Bar and Pecos Flavors Winery for their logistical support. Due to unforseen circumstances, I was unable to attend the festivities this year save for the Alien Chase start (selfish, I know), but I understand that the events were well attended and Roswell enjoyed another successful UFO fest. Kudos to Julie Shuster and Greg Neal and the committee for all their hard work. Thanks also to Anna Edwards for all her efforts to keep the ship afloat, and for turning the Driving Miss Daisy scenario around completely. Finally, thanks to those 455 participants who made the event what it always is: a good time in our little (according to the census) city of Roswell. Thanks again to all! Bob Edwards Roswell Runners Club

Congratulations to FFA winners

Dear Editor: Recently the Goddard FFA Chapter returned from the State FFA Convention held in Las Cruces on the New Mexico State University Campus. These students did a great job in representing Roswell and the Goddard FFA Chapter. We would like to recognize them and their accomplishments. We had nine students receive their State FFA Degree: Gabby Baker, Jacquie Best, Jessica Burson, Ryan Davidson, Sara Garcia, Warren Goode, Cheyenne Niece, Callie Tucker Gariepy and Joanna Villalobos. The State FFA Degree is the highest award that the New Mexico FFA Association can bestow upon its members. Bailey Gammill and A.J. Vaz were two of three finalists in the Star State Greenhand competition. Bailey Gammill went on to receive the award of the Star State Greenhand. Jessica Burson also represented Goddard as a finalist of the Star State Farmer Competition. Goddard FFA Chapter’s Ag Marketing team consisted of Gabby Baker, Cheyenne Niece and Joanna Villalobos. These three individuals put together a marketing plan for Baker Farms, located in Roswell. Goddard’s Ag Marketing Team took first place. Greenhand Samantha Marley competed in the State Greenhand Creed Contest, where she received sixth place for her presentation of the FFA Creed. A.J. Vaz also competed in the Agri-Science Project Fair, in the category of Zoology, where he received first place for his study on the diets of dairy cattle. Casey Conlee also competed in the Zoology category of the Agri-Science Fair; Casey also received first place for his study on the Farmer’s Almanac. All the first-place teams and individuals will travel to Indianapolis, Indiana, in October to compete at the National FFA Convention, and for the title as the national winner. Congratulations to all these students. I am proud of all of you and look forward to what you will achieve in life. Sincerely, Whitley Gammill Retired Goddard FFA President Retired New Mexico State FFA VP



Hyperthermia: Dangerous to Kids and Pets!

Roswell Daily Record

Hyperthermia is overheating of the body. Hyperthermia is literally high heat. There are a variety of heat-related illnesses, including heat stroke and heat exhaustion as well as heat cramps, heat rash and sunbur n. Record high and dangerous temperatures continue throughout southeastern New Mexico as through the central part of the United States. A recent, and tragic death of an Oklahoma 3-year-old reminds us how very dangerous our cars can become in the heat. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administra-

tion (NHTSA) warns us of the very high risk that hyperthermia (heat-stroke) presents to children. “Even with the windows rolled down two inches, it only takes 10 minutes for the inside of a vehicle to reach deadly temperatures on a hot summer day,” said Ronald Medford, acting deputy administrator of NHTSA. “Children should never be left alone in or around a motor vehicle, not even for a quick errand. Any number of things can go critically wrong in the blink of an eye.” Already, in 2011, 20 children have died

because of hyperthermia because they were left in cars! In 2010, 49 fatalities occurred. Of the 494 vehicular hyperthermia deaths (1998-2010), it has been determined that 51 percent were occasions where the child was “forgotten,” 30 percent oc-

Two locals attend NMSU ranch management camp

Two Chaves County youth attended the inaugural New Mexico Youth Ranch Management Camp at the Valles Caldera National Preserve during June. Kullen Wooten, son of Smiley and Shannon Wooten of Roswell, and Lane Barraza, son of Joe and Sandra Barraza of Roswell, said they learned a lot about beef cattle production and ranching during the camp. New Mexico Youth Ranch Management Camp was a once-in-a-life-time experience. Twenty-nine teens from family-owned New Mexico ranches, an enthusiastic group of instructors from New Mexico State University’s Cooperative Extension Service, and the picturesque landscape of the Valles Caldera National Preserve in northern New Mexico created a unique event for the future ranch managers. “When you capture this much positive energy into a single event, great things happen,” said Manny Encinias, New Mexico State University Extension beef cattle specialist and a member of the camp’s organizing task force. The youth ranch management program focused on providing hands-on training for future ranch managers and stewards of New Mexico’s natural resources. The program is an expansion of the research and education contractual agreement between NMSU and the Valles Caldera Trust. Camp participants selected for the program came from ranches in 19 New Mexico counties to learn science-based skills used successfully on modernday ranches to improve beef production, natural resource stewardship, wildlife management and fiscal management. “There is so much more to ranching than meets the eye,” Wooten said. “It’s not just gathering the cattle and branding them, shipping them, or selling and buying them. I thought it

would be nice to learn more about the market, even though my family owns the Roswell Livestock Sale Barn.” Wooten said he wants to share the information he learned with his uncle and father, who also work the family ranch north of Roswell. “I’d like to bring a new-age twist to the operation. There are so many more advances in technology and ways to do things today. Most people might not be too open-minded to it unless they came to an event like this and really learned about the all-science-based and tested ranching methods that were taught by these college professors.” “I think ranching is important. That’s why I want to be involved in it,” Barraza said. “I think this camp was important because people may know the basics about ranching, but they went into more detail here. We got a ton of knowledge from all of the professors and experts that made presentations.” “During the week-long camp, participants were challenged 12 hours a day with a college-level curriculum of hands-on activities and lectures,” Encinias said. “Each day’s activities contributed infor mation that the youth used to develop a ranch management plan for designated areas of the 89,000-acre Valles Caldera National Preserve.” Information presented by NMSU Cooperative Extension specialists and county agricultural agents included Beef Quality Assurance training; pros and cons of artificial insemination and estrus synchronization; uses of real-time ultrasound technology to determine pregnancy and estimate carcass traits; and range plant identification and range management techniques to determine stocking rates for grazing. NMSU Extension wildlife specialists and representatives from the New Mexico Game and Fish Department talked about the importance of co-existing with

wildlife, how to estimate wildlife populations and how to improve wildlife habitats. The youth were also exposed to various ways to market cattle. They participated in a traditional salebarn mock sale conducted on-site. They also learned about forward contracting cattle through video and online sales, as well as marketing beef and beef products directly to the consumer. Other camp highlights included fabricating a beef carcass into retail cuts for the camp cooks to prepare during the week, and watching a ranch horse training demonstration. The campers also tested their shooting skills at an air rifle mobile recreation unit and an archery range. “We challenged these young people with a rigorous program for five full days,” Encinias said. “They never seemed to weaken. They were like sponges absorbing knowledge all week.” To put all of the passion, logical thinking and brain power to good use, the youth were divided into six teams that developed ranch management plans for assigned areas of the preserve, which ranged in size from 4,000 to 5,000 acres. The plans were presented to a panel of judges made up of successful New Mexico ranch managers, and an audience that included dignitaries and parents. The winning team members were Richard Rush of Melrose, Michael Meyers of Albuquerque, Lukas Mott of Chaparral, Katrina Benson of Taos and Leonard Trujillo of Bloomfield. “We all grew from this phenomenal experience, adults included,” Encinias said. “These young people met every challenge we threw at them, head-on. They demonstrated their unique leadership abilities and team skills. They definitely got out of their comfort zones. And most amazing, they expressed their genuine appreciation and respect for humanity, livestock and the land.”

curred with children playing in unattended vehicles, and 17 percent were situations where the children were intentionally left in the vehicle. Here are a few safety tips from the NHTSA to prevent hyperthermia: •Never leave a child unattended in a vehicle. •Do not let your children play in an unattended vehicle. Vehicles are not play areas. •Never leave infants or children in a parked vehicle, even if the windows are partially open or with the engine running and the air conditioning on. •Make a habit of looking

in the vehicle — front and back — before locking the door and walking away. •If you take your child to daycare, when normally it’s your spouse or partner who takes them, have your spouse or partner call you to make sure everything went according to plan. •Ask your childcare provider to call you if your child does not show up for childcare. Do some unusual thing to remind yourself that a child is in the vehicle, or to force yourself to have to look in the back seat. • Always lock vehicle doors and trunks and keep keys out of children’s

reach. If a child is missing, check the vehicle first, including the trunk.

• If you see a child alone in a hot vehicle, call the police! Get them out as quickly as possible. Cool the child as rapidly as possible, and call 911.

Don’t let a horrible tragedy happen in your family!

Iowa pays London firm $450,000 to ditch movies

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Iowa has paid London filmmakers $450,000 to cancel plans to shoot a movie there about a flesh-eating lake monster and other films that could have qualified for millions of dollars in tax credits, newly released public records show. London-based Midsummer Films and its subsidiaries won approval in 2009 to shoot six films in Iowa with the help of the state’s aggressive tax incentives, which were advertised as “half-price filmmaking” and briefly made Iowa a top destination for producers. But just one month after Midsummer’s films were approved, then-Gov. Chet Culver suspended the program amid mounting evidence that fraud and mismanagement were costing taxpayers millions of dollars. Several top state officials resigned and Culver fired Iowa Film Office Manager Tom Wheeler, who was later charged with fraud along with several film industry representa-

tives. Midsummer’s productions had been approved for tax credits of up to $25.6 million based on estimated budgets totaling more than $51 million, according to records obtained by The Associated Press. The company could have tried to follow through with its plans after the program was reinstated for existing applicants with tighter oversight, but lawyers representing the state encouraged it to abandon the projects in Iowa to avoid a huge liability for state taxpayers. “It was a much better thing for the state for them to not make the movies and for us to pay this amount of money than for us to make the movies and issue $25 million in credits,” said Deputy Attorney General Jeffrey Thompson, who negotiated the deal for the state. “The reality is, the idea that having people make movies in Iowa under the tax credit program created any kind of real economic benefit was just not true.”

The $450,000 payment reimbursed Midsummer for “liabilities and expenses” it spent preparing for production, according to a settlement dated March 30 and released this month to the AP. Thompson said an audit by the state confirmed Midsummer spent “substantially more than that” on the projects before the program was suspended. In exchange for the pay-

ment, the firm agreed not to make the movies in Iowa or sue the state for breach of contract. Midsummer had signed a contract with the state for one of its six approved films, a featurelength film titled “Legendary, The Shocate,” which was to be shot in Des Moines and at Lake Red Rock. “Travis Preston is called to investigate if a legendary lake monster is behind the

deaths at a remote construction site,” a synopsis of the film reads. “As the death toll rises, Preston discovers the beast is not only real but has a taste for human flesh.” It is the second large legal settlement Iowa has approved in recent months related to the movie program, and others are expected to be finalized soon, Thompson said. In the other case, Iowa paid a

$434,000 cash settlement to After Dark Films on top of $316,000 in tax credits after the company argued it received far fewer credits than was initially promised to make two horror movies in the state. Midsummer executives Matthew Kuipers and Chris Milburn did not return email messages seeking comment, and a phone number listed for the firm rang unanswered.

Spring River Golf Course head professional Carlton Blewett carded a 7-under 64 and climbed to the top of the professional flight leaderboard after the second round of the 21st annual Rotary Desert Sun Classic on Saturday at Spring River Golf Course. Blewett turned in bogeyfree round and had five birdies to go along with an eagle on No. 1 to record the day’s low round in any flight. After the eagle on the first, he got to 3 under with a birdie on No. 4 and then finished the front with five straight pars to go out in 33. He ran the string of pars to eight straight after the first three holes on the back, but then made four birdies in a row on Nos. 13, 14, 15 and 16 to go 7 deep. Back-to-back pars on the last two holes finished off a back-nine 31. Blewett (7 under) leads the tournament by a shot over Daniel Nunez, who followed his opening-round 69 with a 67 on Saturday.

Nunez opened his round with five straight pars before making birdies on the final four holes of the front to go out in 32. On the back, he matched two bogeys with two birdies to come in at 35. Dan Koesters and Trent Rommann are tied for third at 5 under. Koesters, who was four shots off the lead entering the day, shot 69, while Rommann carded a 67 to climb two spots on the leaderboard. Koesters shot a 1-over 37 on the front nine, but rallied with four birdies to go along with a bogey and four pars on the back nine for a 32. Rommann birdied the second hole for his lone birdie on the front nine and went out in 35, then made three birdies on the back to come in at 32. Larry Mackin (69 on Day 2), Mark England (68), Mike Zaremba (68) and Jim Blair (66) are three shots of f the pace at 4 under, while first-round leader Dominic Curran, who shot a second-round 75, is four

SANDWICH, England (AP) — About the only predictable part of this British Open is the weather. The biggest surprise is the list of contenders for the claret jug. The weather was wild again Saturday, shifting from a raging wind to a gentle sea breeze, from a driving rain to brilliant sunshine, and leaving most of the field wet, tired and feeling as though they got the short end of the draw. That’s not unusual. More peculiar was seeing Darren Clarke atop the leaderboard after a 1-under 69, his first time in contention at any major in 10 years. Right behind was Dustin Johnson, who was 4 over through the opening 13 holes of this championship and somehow wound up in the final group. Thomas Bjorn, who threw away the British Open eight




Clarke avoids the weather, takes the lead

UPDATE Roswell split a doubleheader with Las Cruces on Saturday. In Game 1 Roswell lost 6-2 and in the nightcap the Invaders won 4-2. In the first game, Las Cruces jumped out to an early lead thanks to two-out hitting. After two quick Vaqueros outs, Clint Stroud reached base on a single and after advancing to second on a passed ball, Stroud scored on a single by Harry Williams. James Lilley gave Las Cruces a 3-0 lead three pitches later when he smashed a two-run homer. The Vaqueros added a run in the second, third and sixth innings. Clint Stottlemyre drove in both Roswell runs in Game 1, while Reed Brown was charged with the loss. Statistics weren’t available at press time for Roswell’s victory in Game 2.

years ago at Royal St. George’s, was the first alternate at the start of the week and now is only three shots behind. There’s also a 22year-old who plays without fear and makes it look fun — only it’s not U.S. Open champion Rory McIlroy, but Rickie Fowler — “Little Rickie” as they call him in these parts. Could anyone have predicted these storylines at the start of the week? “No,” Johnson replied. “I was playing pretty well, but you never know, especially coming into a British Open.” At least Sunday might be a little easier to sort out. Clarke escaped the worst of the raging weather Saturday, leaving him far less traffic on his unlikely road to a claret jug. He was dressed in full rain gear when he walked to the first tee for a third round that had been crowded with contenders. When he walked off the 18th green in short sleeves, he had a oneshot lead and was blinking in the bright sunshine over Royal St. George’s. There were 44 players within five shots of the lead

going into the third round. Now there are 12. “If somebody had given me 69 before I was going out to play, I would have bitten their hand off for it,” Clarke said. “Saying that, we did get very fortunate with the draw. Sometimes to win any tournament, the draw can make a big difference. But in The Open Championship, it makes a huge difference. We got very lucky.” He also was very good. Clarke missed only two greens in regulation, and was one of only three players who managed to break par. It was his third round in the 60s, and it put him at 5-under 205 and into the final group of the British Open for the first time since 1997 at Royal Troon. Fewer contenders doesn’t make it any easier. Johnson, the powerful 27year -old American, managed to make six birdies on his way to a 68 that puts him in the final group for the third time in the last six majors. The other two aren’t exactly glorious memories — an 82 to lose a three-shot

Bumpy road looking pretty good now for Americans

FRANKFUR T, Germany (AP) — The bumpy, windy road got the Americans right where they wanted to go all along. Eight months after having to win a playoff just to get to Germany, the Americans face Japan in the Women’s World Cup final on Sunday. A win would be the ultimate finish to their improbable journey, making the United States the first three-time champions and delighting a country of newfound fans. “I believe all the way we’ll find a way,” Carli Lloyd said Saturday after the team’s last training session. “It’s going to be a tough match like every other match has been, but I believe that we will find a way and it’s our destiny to get it done.” For a long time, the Americans were about the only ones who believed that. The U.S. is the No. 1ranked team in the world

and defending Olympic champion, and the Americans have dominated the women’s game for the better part of two decades now. But they arrived at the World Cup looking, well, kind of average. They were stunned in regional qualifying in November in Mexico, a team that hadn’t managed a win in its first 25 tries against its neighbor to the north, and had to beat Italy in a two-game playoff for the very last spot in the World Cup. They opened the year with a loss to Sweden, then fell to England for the first time in 22 years — so long ago Alex Morgan hadn’t even been born yet. Then, after easy wins in their first two games in Germany, the Americans lost to Sweden again, their first loss ever in World Cup group play. See USA, Page B5

Duffer’s Corner: Talking with Brett Leach KEVIN J. KELLER RECORD SPORTS EDITOR

In this week’s “Duffer’s Corner,” I sit down with one of the most recognizable faces in the Roswell golf scene — Roswell Country Club member and Rotary Desert Sun Classic chairman Brett Leach. How did you get into the game? My dad and mom both played golf, so I would go out there with an oddball club and try to hit balls when my mom and dad would go out there. It was just kind of fun to go out there with them. I watched them hit balls and I thought, “Well that would be kind of fun to do.” Of course, you hit the ground, hit this and hit that, but you kind of get a little rhythm, at least to where you don’t whiff it every time. That’s kind of how it started.

When did golf become a passion for you? When I was a junior in college. One of my good friends wanted to take up the game. My granddad and his dad were good buddies and we’d always fish together and hunted, things like that. He had really not played golf, but he always use to go to the golf course with me when my dad would take us. We’d go shoot ground squirrels or whatever, but he wanted to learn how to play golf when we got in college. He went and bought a starter set at a hardware store and I had a used, makeshift set that my dad had put together for me, and we started playing. Then we got the bug. We had a job at the university where we got off at 4 o’clock in the afternoon in the summer time, so we played from 4 o’clock until it got so dark you couldn’t play. In fact, I’d light a cigarette and put it down by the hole, then try to look at the cigarette butt and putt. And we did that every day; we walked and played as many holes as possible. What keeps you coming back to the golf course? The camaraderie of the people I play with, primarily. I play with Howard (Perry) and my friend Mac, who is a dentist in Artesia who was the guy I got started with. Lifelong friends like that. I

enjoy the camaraderie of the people I play with. Golf, itself, when you get older and you can’t hit it as far and you don’t play as well as you used to think you could, is a little discouraging. But, it’s still such a great game that you can still play it when you’re 95. That’s the beauty of golf.

What is your favorite part of the game? A long time ago, it used to be iron play, because the best part of my game was iron play. That has since gone, but I still like the short irons and wedges. It would probably be one of those. My short iron play is still somewhat competitive.

How important is putting? It’s the most important thing there is. If you watch the guys on the PGA Tour and the LPGA ladies, they’re all great ball-strikers. From day to day, they all strike the ball well. But if you watch the people who consistently win the tournaments, it’s who gets the hot hand with the putter. Putting is, by far, the most important.

What is your favorite hole in Roswell? My favorite hole in Roswell is probably No. 8 at the Country Club. It’s one of the short par-4s and it’s one of the ones that I, personally, birdie more than most of the others. If you drive the ball in play, you’ve really got a good chance to make birdie.

What is the best tip you’ve ever received? I guess the best lesson I ever got was from (former Portales Country Club professional Harold Smith) on striking the ball. He was truly one of those guys that could take a 4-iron and hit down through it, and you’re thinking, “that’s fixing to hit and go over the green and

out of bounds,” then it would jump once and then come rolling back. From him, just the fact to solidly strike the ball and be aggressive through the ball. Just let the club do the work and be aggressive with the swing.

What is your most memorable shot in golf? I guess the hole-in-one I made was kind of unusual because I flew the ball in the hole. I thought it flew over the green because it just disappeared and never hit the green. No. 11 at the Institute. We were playing in a golf tournament, and I had just come off a birdie on No. 10 and then knocked it in the hole with an 8-iron on No. 11 and didn’t have to buy drinks because it was Sunday. Then I birdied the next hole and thought, “Boy, I’ll never have another bad day,” then I shot 2 or 3 over from there in because I got so excited and blew up the round.

Roswell Country Club member Brett Leach

What is your most memorable moment in golf? My most memorable moment is, in 1978, I won the Portales Country Club club championship against a lot of quality, good golfers. It was really a competitive thing. I probably played the best round of golf I’ve played in my life on that Sunday. I think I shot 69 or so, but I hit every green and putted for two eagles. It’s one of those days, I knew I didn’t have to make anything, I knew I just did not need to make any big errors because I had a lead. It was the best day of ball striking ever. When I got through and actually realized that I won, I really was pinching myself and asking if I really won that and did I play well enough under the pressure to actually do that. I had to wake up the next morning and say, “Is it in the paper? Did I really do that?”


Having mathematically proven last weekend that putting is half the game, let’s delve into some aspects that might help our putting statistics. What other sport do we aim with our eyes perpendicular to the ground? The answer is none. Darts, billiards, throwing a ball, catching, shooting free throws, tennis, racquetball ... the list goes on. You name it and the process is performed with the eyes parallel to the ground. Golf is the only sport in which you aim with your eyes perpendicular. This is not the way humans were made to function. Binocular vision works best with the eyes parallel to the ground, not perpendicular. As if putting wasn’t hard enough already, let’s add a skewed point of view for a little insult to injury. Being a solution-based person, the question in my mind becomes, “how do we mitigate the effects of skewed aiming?” Drawing a line on the ball, and then using that line as a reference to our aiming point is a very efficient way to eliminate this variable.

Get behind the ball with your marker still in place on the green. In the squat position, move the ball to where the line is pointed directly toward the desired target. If you can put a solid enough stroke on the ball, the line will roll end-over -end down your intended target line. If the line is wobbly, the contact was probably not as solid as we would have liked. So, the line serves two purposes: No. 1 is with certainty knowing that our aim is correct and No. 2 is to use the line as instant feedback with regard to the centeredness of contact. Paying attention to this will also enable us to self correct. Much of successful golf is the ability to eliminate variable. This process on the putting green helps eliminate a huge variable and, if practiced regularly, will help your putting statistics. If it doesn’t, take two weeks off, then quit.

NBA lockout doesn’t threaten Grant’s fundraiser

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — The NBA lockout isn’t really posing any challenges for Brian Grant’s big fundraiser to fight Parkinson’s disease, contrary to widespread reports and Internet buzz. Last summer, a few NBA players lent Grant a hand in his “Shake It Till We Make It” gala dinner and golf tournament. This year, that won’t be the case. Grant, who has the disease, serves as a community ambassador for the Portland Trail Blazers. Because of the labor dispute between league owners and players, team employees can’t have contact with players. There will be plenty of other celebrities to help Grant’s cause on July 31 at the Rose Garden Arena dinner. The golf tournament will be held the next day at Pumpkin Ridge Golf Club west of Portland. Grant raised $350,000 last year, with participants including Michael J. Fox, Muhammad Ali, Pat Riley and Bill Russell. Reports surfaced this week that Grant was being hamstrung by the no-contact edict and the story spread to Twitter. But the criticism was unfounded, said “Shake It Till We Make It” spokeswoman Sara Perrin. “The NBA has been an awesome partner for us. They couldn’t be more supportive,” she said. Grant can’t address the rumors himself without facing a possible fine. NBA spokesman Tim Frank says neither Grant nor the Blazers have asked for an exemption to the no-contact rule. But others have asked and received exclusions. Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban was allowed to appear with his team at the recent ESPY awards. Employees of the Miami Heat were permitted to attend Chris Bosh’s wedding this weekend. The NBA was criticized for allowing Michael Jordan to play in a celebrity golf tournament at Lake Tahoe this weekend — while Grant had not been given the same blessing. But Frank said Jordan, an owner of the Charlotte Bobcats, and Vinny Del Negro, coach of the Los Angeles Clippers, checked with the league office before the American Century Celebrity Golf Championship to make sure they weren’t breaking any rules. Frank told The Associated Press in an email that there are no rules against owners and players being at an independent event, such as the golf tournament, where they’re among many other people. Problems arise when team business or the labor dispute is discussed. But Grant, as a team employee, cannot invite current players to attend his own fundraiser unless he has an exemption. Additionally, the event takes place at the Rose Garden, which could be problematic. The collective bargaining agreement between team owners and the players’ union expired at the end of the day June 30. Owners locked out the players after the sides remained far apart in their final proposals. Among the sports celebrities attending Grant’s dinner this year are Riley, Russell, Charles Barkley, Bill Walton and Detlef Schrempf. Muhammad Ali’s wife, Lonnie Ali, will speak. Muhammad Ali also suffers from Parkinson’s. The fundraising dinner is sold out, Perrin said. Only a few active NBA players, including Portland’s Brandon Roy and Greg Oden, attended the event last year. A first-round draft pick in 1994 out of Xavier, Grant played for five NBA teams. The dreadlocked 6-foot-9 forward built a reputation for hard-nosed play after a ferocious battle against Karl Malone in the 1999 playoffs. In the 2000-01 season, the Heat moved him from power forward to center after Alonzo Mourning developed a kidney ill-

Two years ago, soon after he decided to make Portland his home, Grant was diagnosed with Parkinson’s. About 1.5 million Americans have the disease, which destroys brain cells that produce dopamine, a chemical key to the functions that control muscle movement. Patients suffer from increasingly severe tremors and periodically rigid limbs. They can have trouble walking, speaking and writing. There is no cure.

Howard: Hard to believe it’s been 20 years

SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) — Desmond Howard shook his head and smiled. It’s been 20 years since he won the Heisman Trophy at Michigan as an electrifying pass catcher and kick returner. To him it just doesn’t seem possible it happened so long ago.

“Time just flies doesn’t it? Twenty years is unbelievable. That’s one of those things when somebody says it you kind of got to do the math in your head, like ‘Yeah I guess he’s right,”’ Howard said Saturday night when he was enshrined with 15 other players and four coaches into the College Football Hall of Fame. “Wow.” Asked what had changed most in the game since flying over fields in Ann Arbor, even striking a Heisman pose after scoring a touchdown, Howard was quick with an answer, just as he was on the field. The spread offense with multiple formations and receivers. “Everyone wants to spread people out and try to get mismatches out there in space,” he said. “When I played — if I did that can you imagine the numbers?” he said with a big laugh. “You got to understand I won the Heisman within the rhythm of our offense. ... We had guys who could tote the pill and we toted it, we just didn’t throw the ball to 21. We tried to run the ball, that was still our primary goal.” Also inducted Saturday night were: Dennis Byrd (North Carolina State, DT, 1965-67); Ronnie Caveness ( Arkansas, LB 1962-64); Ray Childress (Texas A&M, DL 1981-84); Dexter Coakley (Appalachian State, LB, 1993-96); Randy Cross (UCLA, OG, 1973-75); Sam Cunningham (Southern California, RB, 1970-72); Michael Favor, North Dakota State, C, 1985-88); Charles Haley (James Madison, DE, 1982-85; Mark Herrmann (Purdue, QB, 1977-80); Clarkston Hines (Duke, WR, 1986-89); Desmond Howard (Michigan, WR, 1989-91); Mickey Kobrosky (Trinity College, Back, 1933-36); Chet Moeller (Navy, DB, 1973-75); Jerry Stovall (LSU, HB, 1960-62); Pat Tillman (Arizona St., LB, 1994-97); Alfred Williams (Colorado, LB, 1987-90). Coach Barry Alvarez (Wisconsin, 1990-2005);

Coach Mike Kelly (Dayton, 1981-2007); Coach Bill Manlove, (Widener, 1969-91), Delaware Valley, 1992-95), La Salle, 1997-2001); Coach Gene Stallings (Texas A&M, 196571), Alabama, 1990-96). Byrd, Tillman and Kobrosky were inducted posthumously. After his college days, Tillman went on to an NFL career with the Cardinals. After three seasons in the NFL, he enlisted in the Army. He was killed in Afghanistan in April 2004. Haley emerged from little-known James Madison to become one of the NFL’s most ferocious pass rushers and played on five Super Bowl championship teams with Dallas and San Francisco. “I never dreamed of going to college and when I got to college I never dreamed of going to the pros,” Haley said. “I was fortunate enough to have coaches to be visionaries and build a foundation and give me a skill set. .. It’s not all about how athletic you are, it’s about having the smarts to understand all the pieces of the puzzle that is going around you at the time.” Cunningham had the nickname “Bam” for his punishing running style. He had four touchdowns in a 1973 Rose Bowl win over Ohio State. In his first game in 1970 against Alabama, he scored two TDs and had 135 yards rushing against the then all-white Crimson Tide, leading a victory in a milestone performance. “It has afforded a lot of black athletes the opportunity to play wherever they want to play,” he said earlier. Alvarez transformed a Wisconsin program that was struggling to win games into a Big Ten and national power and ended up winning three Rose Bowls. “It’s kind of a culmination,” he said of his selection. “It’s what I did for a living. ... It’s pretty special.”

CC picks up 14th win, Mets crush Phillies B4 Sunday, July 17, 2011

TORONTO (AP) — CC Sabathia ensured the New York Yankees didn’t have to wait another day for their next win. Sabathia won his seventh straight start to become the first 14-game winner in the majors, Brett Gardner had three hits and the Yankees beat Toronto 4-1 on Saturday, ending the Blue Jays’ five-game winning streak. “To not win for a week, and that’s what it felt like because we hadn’t played for a few days, you need a win,” manager Joe Girardi said. “CC went out and got one for us.” The Yankees got back in the win column after losing their first two games following the All-Star break. Their last victory was Sabathia’s most recent start, July 10 against Tampa, the day before the break. “He’s great, he is every time,” Gardner said of Sabathia. “You guys keep asking me how he is and it seems like every time I tell you the same thing: He’s just dominant.” Sabathia (14-4) allowed one run and three hits in eight innings. He walked three and struck out eight. Derek Jeter got two hits and matched Al Kaline for 26th place on baseball’s career list. Jeter singled in the ninth for hit No. 3,007. Gardner doubled in the second, hustled for a double and scored in the fourth, then stole second after reaching on a bunt single in the sixth. Sabathia has struck out 59 and posted an ERA of 1.68 over his seven-start winning streak. The lefthander has won 11 of his past 12 outings, his only defeat in that span being a June 9 home loss to Boston. “His slider was good today,” Girardi said. “I thought all his stuff was good. His velocity was great, his changeup was very good. He just knows how to pitch.” New York’s staff ace set down 12 of 13 at one stretch and allowed just one extra-base hit, John McDonald’s double to left in the eighth. “CC was very good,” Blue Jays manager John Farrell said. “There were not a lot of opportunities to take advantage of.” After accusations in the first game of the series that Toronto was stealing signs, catcher Russell Martin gave pitcher Freddy Garcia multiple signs Friday. But Sabathia and batterymate Francisco Cervelli didn’t bother with that. “Me and Cervi talked about it before the game and just used a different set than we normally use with a runner on second. I don’t really think it’s something that you can really do anything about. You just go out and try to pitch,” Sabathia said. Mariano Rivera pitched



around a pair of singles to finish in the ninth for his 23rd save in 27 chances. New York got some muchneeded rest for its bullpen, which had worked 10 1-3 innings of relief in the previous two games as Toronto outscored the Yankees 238. Sabathia’s career -long streak of 23 2-3 scoreless innings came to an early when Toronto end scratched out a run in the first. Rajai Davis led of f with a walk and stole second before coming home on Yunel Escobar’s single up the middle. “My command was of f early,” Sabathia said. “I just stuck with it, tried to be aggressive and I ended up getting better as the game went on.” The Yankees gave Sabathia a lead he would not relinquish with a tworun second against lefthander Ricky Romero (7-9). Nick Swisher doubled and scored on a single, Gardner doubled and Eduardo Nunez followed with an RBI groundout. New York added one more in each of the third and fourth innings. Starting as the designated hitter, Curtis Granderson walked to open the third and went to third on a one-out single by Robinson Cano. After Romero’s pitch to Jones bounced away from catcher J.P. Arencibia, Cano made a move toward second. When Arencibia threw to Aaron Hill at second, Granderson broke for the plate, scoring easily when Hill’s errant throw sailed to the backstop. Mets 11, Phillies 2 NEW YORK (AP) — Scott Hairston, subbing for ailing All-Star Carlos Beltran, hit a long homer and drove in a career-best five runs as the New York Mets hammered Philadelphia Phillies ace Cole Hamels yet again in an 11-2 victory Saturday. Daniel Murphy also went deep and Jonathon Niese pitched seven strong innings to help the depleted Mets snap a three-game skid. Fielding a makeshift lineup minus its four biggest bats, New York rapped out 15 hits and improved to 4-7 this season against the NL East leaders, who own baseball’s best record. Beltran sat out with the flu and a high fever, so manager Terry Collins inserted a not-so-secret weapon against Hamels (11-5). Hairston batted third in large part because he entered with a .353 career average (6 for 17) and three homers against the lefthander, one of Philadelphia’s three All-Star starters. Those numbers quickly ballooned even more. Hairston doubled his first two times up, driving in two

runs and scoring one as New York built a 4-0 lead by the fourth. He hit a three-run shot off Danys Baez in the seventh to make it 11-2, a drive to left that sailed into the rarely reached second deck at spacious Citi Field. The offensive outburst was a surprise, especially because the Mets are also missing injured shortstop Jose Reyes, third baseman David Wright and first baseman Ike Davis. Hamels was the fifth AllStar starter the Mets faced in a span of six games. They went 2-3 in those contests. Niese (9-7) allowed one ear ned run and six hits while striking out six and walking one. The left-hander, who leads the team in wins and is 9-4 in his last 15 starts, hardly ran into any trouble besides a bases-loaded jam in the seventh that he soon escaped. Murphy opened the fifth with his sixth home run to make it 5-0, and the Mets didn’t stop there. Jason Bay singled and, one out later, lumbering Nick Evans hit a long drive to right for his second major league triple. Ruben Tejada grounded reliever David Herndon’s first pitch through a drawn-in infield for a 7-0 cushion. Hamels yielded seven earned runs, matching a career high, and eight hits in 4 1-3 innings — his latest rough outing against the Mets. The left-hander with the hide-and-seek changeup fell to 3-10 in 16 career games against New York. He lasted only 2 2-3 innings in a 7-1 loss to New York on April 5 and had dropped five consecutive starts against the Mets before striking out 10 in a 5-2 victory May 28 at Citi

Field. His demise Saturday came much to the delight of fans who remember that Hamels called the Mets “choke artists” in December 2008 after their second consecutive September collapse. One of baseball’s best pitchers in the first half, Hamels was selected to his second All-Star team but was ineligible to participate in Tuesday’s game because he started Sunday. Miscommunication on the Philadelphia infield made for an unlucky start to the day for Hamels, who entered with a 2.32 ERA — second-best in the NL to Atlanta’s Jair Jurrjens. Hairston doubled with two outs in the first and hustled home when Murphy’s har mless-looking popup dropped between first baseman Ryan Howard and second baseman Chase Utley, who both backed away as the ball descended. Howard got a derisive cheer when he gloved Evans’ foulout the next inning. New York went down 1-23 in the second, but Hamels never found a groove. He issued a leadoff walk to Niese in the third and that proved costly when Hairston lined a tworun double under the glove of third baseman Wilson Valdez, filling in for injured All-Star Placido Polanco.

Marlins 13, Cubs 3 CHICAGO (AP) — Mike Stanton hit two home runs, Javier Vazquez struck out 10 and the Florida Marlins routed the Chicago Cubs on Saturday. Stanton got three hits and drove in four runs. He hit a solo homer in the fourth inning and added a three-run shot, his 20th, in the fifth off Carlos Zambrano. Zambrano (6-5) was acti-

vated from the 15-day disabled list earlier in the day. He had a rocky 4 2-3 innings, giving up eight earned runs on seven hits and four walks. Vazquez (6-8) went seven innings and pitched the Marlins to their seventh win in eight games. Vazquez allowed only one hit through 5 1-3 innings. Aramis Ramirez hit a threerun homer in the sixth. Now 1-2 against the Cubs this season, Vazquez gave up four hits and walked none. Red Sox 9, Rays 5 ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — Dustin Pedroia, Jacoby Ellsbury and Josh Reddick homered and the Boston Red Sox rallied from an early three-run deficit against All-Star James Shields to beat the Tampa Bay Rays on Saturday. John Lackey (7-8) struck out seven while allowing four runs and 10 hits over 5 2-3 innings for the AL East leaders, who retained a 1 1-2-game lead over the New York Yankees and dropped the third-place Rays a season-high six games off the pace in the division. Reddick’s two-run homer got Boston rolling after the Rays staked Shields (8-8) to a 3-0 lead in the first inning. Ellsbury hit a solo shot in the fourth, while Pedroia homered for the third consecutive game when he connected of f Juan Cruz in the seventh.

Angels 4, Athletics 2 OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Jered Weaver held Oakland hitless until the fifth inning and won his sixth straight decision, pitching the Los Angeles Angels past the Athletics on Saturday in the first game of a doubleheader. Erick Aybar homered and

Bobby Abreu drove in two runs as the Angels won for the ninth time in 11 games. Weaver (12-4), the AL starter in the All-Star game, allowed two runs and seven hits in 6 2-3 innings. Kurt Suzuki and Jemile Weeks each had three hits for the A’s, who have lost five of six.

White Sox 5, Tigers 0 DETROIT (AP) — Edwin Jackson pitched his first complete game since his no-hitter last year, and Juan Pierre added four hits to lead the Chicago White Sox to a win over the Detroit Tigers on Saturday. Jackson (6-7) allowed nine hits in his third career shutout, striking out two and walking two. It was his first complete game since June 25, 2010, when Jackson, then with the Arizona Diamondbacks, held Tampa Bay hitless in a 1-0 win. Jackson threw 149 pitches in that game. He needed only 101 on Saturday. Max Scherzer (10-5) allowed two runs and eight hits in eight innings. He struck out six. Carlos Quentin hit a solo home run for Chicago.

Twins 4, Royals 3 MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Michael Cuddyer singled home the go-ahead run in the eighth inning and Joe Nathan did his job as the new closer Saturday night, giving the Minnesota Twins a 4-3 win over the Kansas City Royals.

Earlier in the day, the Twins put the former All-Star back into his familiar role, replacing the struggling Matt Capps.

lead at the U.S. Open last year, a two-shot penalty on the last hole of the PGA Championship when he did not realize he was in a bunker. “I’m going to be pretty comfortable out there tomorrow because I know what to expect, I know how to approach it, and I know what I do in those situations,” Johnson said. “So hopefully, I can go out tomorrow and play some solid golf like I’ve been doing the last few days.” Fowler was soaked, zipped up in a cream-colored rainsuit for two-thirds of his round, yet it never seemed to bother him. He hung around par during the

worst of the conditions — a remarkable feat — and when the rain went away, he took off to higher ground. Fowler made three birdies over the last six holes for a 68 and was two shots behind, along with Thomas Bjorn (71). Fowler played with McIlroy, whose hopes ended with a tee shot that went out-of-bounds on the 14th. He shot 74 and was nine shots behind. Lucas Glover, a U.S. Open champion who played in the final group Saturday, made 10 straight pars early in his round only to lose his way, but not his hopes over the final hour. Glover missed two birdie putts inside 6 feet on the back nine, and made two bogeys. He shot 73, but still was within four shots. He was tied with Miguel


Angel Jimenez, who didn’t make a birdie in his round of 72. Also still in the mix is Phil Mickelson, who has only contended once in the British Open. He rallied when the sun began to break through the clouds and salvaged a 71, leaving him five shots back in a group that included Anthony Kim (68), PGA champion Martin Kaymer (73) and R yder Cup captain Davis Love III, who tied for fourth at Royal St. George’s in 2003 and had a 72 to stay in range. But it starts with Clarke, a 42-year-old from Northern Ireland who has been watching the youngsters from Ulster celebrate golf’s biggest events, from Graeme McDowell at Pebble Beach last summer to McIlroy at

“In the past, we’d always won everything,” captain Christie Rampone said. “Those losses made our team what it is today. We need each other and you feel that, from the locker room to the time we step on the field.” Never was that faith in each other more evident than in their quarterfinal against Brazil. Down a player for almost an hour and on the verge of making their earliest exit ever from a major tournament, Abby Wambach’s magnificent, leaping header in the 122nd minute tied the game and sparked one of the most riveting finishes ever in a World Cup game — men’s or women’s. The Americans beat Brazil in a penalty shootout and, just like that, the folks back home were hooked. Hollywood celebrities, fellow pro athletes and people who don’t care about any sport, let alone soccer, have adopted the players. The Brazil match drew the third-highest ratings ever for a Women’s World Cup game, and Wednesday’s semifinal victory over France did almost as well — despite being played in the middle of the workday back home. The Empire State Building is lit with the red, white and blue this weekend, along with Japan’s colors. And the White House is sending an official delegation led by Vice President Joe Biden’s wife, Jill, and Chelsea Clinton, who just happened to be part of that massive Rose Bowl crowd 12 years ago, the last time the Americans won the title. “We’ve proved everyone wrong,” Lloyd said. “Now I think everyone is starting to believe in us. We’ve won everybody over, which is tremendous because the support back home has been unbelievable.” While part of the U.S. appeal is its success

here, it’s the team’s spunk that has really charmed fans, a can-do attitude uniquely — proudly — American. This might not be the best team the U.S. has ever had, but none will try harder. “We are disappointed in the kind of soccer we played in last few games. It’s just not the kind of soccer we want to play,” Wambach said. “Sometimes games turn into what games turn into and you have to deal with what you’ve got and somehow find a way and figure it out. And that’s what we did and that’s something to be proud of and that’s what we take away from it. “But against Japan, we want to do and play the way we’ve been training. We don’t want it just to be a dogfight. We want it to be a game people can watch and be excited about.” Japan will have something to say about that, of course. The Nadeshiko have never beaten the Americans — draws in 2000, 2003 and 2004 are the best they’ve managed in 25 games — and have been outscored a whopping 77-13. They have three losses this year alone to the U.S., including a pair of 2-0 defeats in warmup games a month before the World Cup began. This also is Japan’s first final at a major tournament, having lost to the U.S. in the semifinals at the Beijing Olympics. “Of course it’s something I bring up,” U.S. coach Pia Sundhage said. “We’ve been there before, we’ve done it before.” But Japan is a far better team than the one the Americans saw in May, having upset pre-tournament favorite Germany in the quarterfinals and Sweden in the semifinals. The Nadeshiko’s ballhandling skills are exquisite, drawing comparisons to Barcelona for their lightning quick passes and slick combination play, and they dominate possession as if it’s a game of keepaway.

Congressional last month. Is it his turn at this stage in his career? “Did I ever doubt I would get myself back in this position? No,” Clarke said. “Did I know it was going to happen? No. Did I hope it was going to happen? Yes. But did I ever doubt? No.” Once he finished his own Q & A, Clarke headed to the home of agent Chubby Chandler to “stuff his face” and try not to have too much to drink. A big day awaits Sunday, perhaps the biggest of his career. And the forecast isn’t very friendly. Typical of the weather in this part of the world, anything goes. There’s supposed to be a mixture of sunshine and passing showers that could be heavy but won’t stick around for long. The constant is the wind, which again is likely to gust upward of 30 mph at times. A one-shot lead is nothing on Royal St. George’s in calm conditions, and anyone at par or better figures to be in the mix. No other major championship depends so largely on the weather, and that was never more clear on Saturday. Those who played early, such as five-time Open champion Tom Watson, caught the worst of the nasty stuff — gusts so strong they flipped umbrellas inside-out, a light rain that soon turned into a driving rain, and scores that soared through the gray sky. Of the first 41 players who teed off, no one could even match par. Trevor Immelman had one of the better rounds at 72, and his strong

effort left him nine shots behind. “It was like going 18 holes with the heavyweight champion of the world,” he said. Watson, the 61-year-old magician on the links, must have been smiling inside when he saw how bad it was. He worked his way around the front nine in wind so strong he twice had to hit driver for his second shot, yet he didn’t make a bogey and was drawing a huge crowd looking for a repeat of Turnberry two years ago, when he nearly won.

He, too, had a 72 and most likely is too far behind. “We got lucky,” Mickelson said. “I think the guys that played late got really lucky, myself included, that it went away right around the turn for me. And we went from really fighting for pars on every hole to thinking about birdies on some.” Until Fowler broke through with his 68, the 41 players before him had an average score of 76.36. The next 29 players after him, who played most of the round without the rain, had an average score of 72.96.

26-foot sculpture of Marilyn unveiled in Chicago CHICAGO (AP) — Marilyn Monroe’s billowing skirt shows it’s possible to catch a nice breeze in the Windy City. As dozens of people watched Friday, a 26-foottall sculpture of Monroe in her famous pose from the film “The Seven Year Itch� was unveiled on Chicago’s Magnificent Mile. In the film, a draft catches Monroe’s dress as she passes over a subway grate. Many in the crowd that descended on the plaza throughout the day — including a tuxedo-clad wedding party — wasted little time positioning themselves under the movie star’s dress to catch a subway-level view and take pictures with their cell phone cameras. Not that Monroe, her eyes closed and a sublime smile on her face, seemed to notice. Some of those who took pictures of the sculpture called “Forever Marilyn� were surprised when they came around the side and back of the sculpture and saw honest-to-goodness lace panties on the movie icon. The film scene and photographs taken from it left much more to the imagination than artist Seward Johnson’s sculpture. “I would have expected to see something flat there, and we wouldn’t

see her undergarments,� said Trisha Feely, 41, who lives in the Chicago suburb of Naperville. “It’s a little intrusive.� “It reveals what everybody was always thinking,� said her husband, Terry Feely, 42. Chicago has a history of public art displays, including a herd of fiberglass cows that lined Michigan Avenue some

years back. The plaza where Monroe will be stationed until next spring was the home a few years ago to another Johnson sculpture: the equally iconic, though far less glamorous, far mer and his spinster daughter from Grant Wood’s “American Gothic.� The Monroe sculpture isn’t even the first piece of public art that people can

stand under and look up at — though nobody who visits the Picasso a few blocks away quite knows what they’re seeing. Marilyn, though, is a different story. “Thank God, she has panties,� said Wanda Taylor, voicing the relief of a mother who wouldn’t have to spend the next several hours answering questions from her 9-year-old

Among its first-day totals Friday was $14.8 million in Great Britain, which Warner Bros. reported was the biggest single day ever for a movie. The first 3-D film in the series, “Deathly Hallows: Part 2� benefited from the higher price theaters charge for 3-D tickets, which cost a few dollars more than 2-D. In a single day, “Deathly

Hallows: Part 2� took in more money than four of the previous seven “Harry Potter� films did over their entire opening weekends. The finale of the “Harry Potter� saga also set a

son, Kendall Sculfield. “They’re clean and white, so I’m happy.� In fact, just about the only ones who weren’t happy with the view were Kendall and his 11-yearold buddy Raymond Qualls — who made sure everybody understood that when he took his picture, it was from the front of the sculpture and not behind or under it.

“I think her dress should be down,� said Kendall, as Raymond nodded in agreement. Trisha Feely suggested someone else would agree with the boys: Monroe’s ex-husband, baseball star Joe DiMaggio. “I wonder what he would think,� she said. DiMaggio was reported to have been upset during the filming of the scene in 1954, and the couple divorced a few months later. But 52-year -old Pam Jennelle, of Orlando, Fla., couldn’t understand how anyone could be offended or uncomfortable with the sculpture. “They’re perfectly proper white lace panties,� she said. Besides, she said, the sculpture, particularly the look on Monroe’s face, captured the magic that people still feel a half century after the movie star’s death. “She’s beautiful,� she said. “How can you not love Marilyn Monroe?� The actual white dress wor n by Monroe in the scene from director Billy Wilder’s 1955 film that helped make her a screen legend sold for $4.6 million at an auction last month of Hollywood costumes and props collected by film star Debbie Reynolds.

‘Harry Potter’ conjures first-day record of $92.1M

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Harry Potter has cast his biggest spell yet with a record-breaking first day at the box office for his final film. Distributor Warner Bros. reports that “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2� summoned up $92.1 million domestically on opening day Friday. That’s nearly $20 million more than the previous

record-holder, “The Twilight Saga: New Moon,� which took in $72.7 million in its first day two years ago. The film added $75 million in 57 overseas countries Friday, raising its inter national total to $157.5 million since it began rolling out Wednesday. That gives the film a worldwide total of about $250 million.

LA avoids feared ‘Carmageddon’ traffic jam

AP Photo

Spectators watch construction workers take down the Mulholland Drive bridge over Interstate 405 in Los Angeles, Saturday. Traffic in the Los Angeles area is so far moving smoothly, several hours after authorities shut down a 10-mile stretch of one of the busiest U.S. freeways for a massive 53-hour construction project.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Southern Californians were making the ultimate sacrifice Saturday to avoid the dreaded “Carmageddon” — leaving their cars in the garage. Unusually light traffic flowed freely through the nation’s second-largest city despite fears of epic traffic jams spawned by the 53hour shutdown of a 10-mile stretch of one of the region’s most critical freeways.

Authorities closed the segment of Interstate 405 on the western side of the metropolis to allow partial demolition of a bridge, warning motorists to stay off the roads or plan alternate routes. Officials were optimistic that the public far and wide had gotten the message, though there was some concer n that the lack of gridlock would make the public complacent and that drivers would get behind

the wheel before the freeway’s scheduled reopening early Monday. “We hope they still listen to what we’re saying and not go out and try to drive through this area, because it is going to be congested if people do that,” said Mike Miles, a district director of the California Department of Transportation, known as Caltrans. Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa flew over the city in a helicopter and said it was clear there were far fewer cars on freeways and streets than normal, but he cautioned at a midafternoon news conference that there were hours to go. Progress on demolition of the half-century-old Mulholland Bridge was on schedule, Villaraigosa said. Power ful machines with long booms hammered away at the south side of the span, which is being removed to allow the interstate to be widened. The plan is to leave the northside lanes standing until the south side is rebuilt. Authorities looking at the potential impacts of the $1 billion interstate project spent months giving the public dire warnings. The event got its name when Los Angeles County Super-

visor Zev Yaroslavsky told an early June press conference that “this doesn’t need to be a Carmageddon” if people avoided driving. Although no major delays related to the closure had occurred by midafternoon, a major test was likely in the evening when Major League Soccer’s Los Angeles Galaxy, featuring David Beckam, is scheduled to play Spanish heavyweight Real Madrid at Memorial Coliseum south of downtown. The potential for Carmageddon is rooted in Los Angeles’ geography. The city is divided by the Santa Monica Mountains, which stretch more than 40 miles from near downtown westward through Malibu. The populous San Fer nando Valley lies on the north side, and the Los Angeles Basin sprawls to the south. Local and long-distance freeway traffic through the mountains has to squeeze through Sepulveda Pass on I-405 or about five miles to the east through Cahuenga Pass, which carries U.S. 101 through the heart of Hollywood. In between there is no grid of boulevards, just a few narrow, windy canyon roads. Skirting the closure to

Roswell Daily Record

the west of Sepulveda Pass would require even longer canyon routes between U.S. 101 and the Pacific Coast Highway. The 405’s load is increased by a major interchange with Interstate 10 below the south end of Sepulveda Pass and traffic associated with the University of California, Los Angeles, and Los Angeles International Airport. At the north end of the pass, the 405 connects with U.S. 101, a major artery between Los Angeles and San Francisco. Farther north, the 405 also connects with the massive load of Interstate 5, California’s backbone highway. The drumbeat of “Carmageddon” warnings triggered an instant industry of businesses trying to capitalize on the phenomenon. JetBlue of fered special flights from Burbank in the San Fer nando Valley to Long Beach, with seats for the short hop costing just $4 or $5. A cycling group saw that as an opportunity for a race. The cyclists started their ride 90 minutes before the flight’s departure time to simulate the time that passengers would have to arrive at Burbank.

Another member of the group took the flight and all were to meet at a Long Beach park. Cyclist Stephan Andranian said it took the bikers one hour and 34 minutes to complete the ride from Burbank to Long Beach, largely following the Los Angeles River. Flight passenger Joe Anthony’s total travel time including cab ride from Long Beach Airport to the park was just over 21⁄2 hours. “We want to show that using a bike in LA is not only possible but that it can be faster than other modes of transportation,” Andranian said. Demolition work is expected to be completed by 2 a.m. Monday, followed by cleanup and reopening of the freeway at 6 a.m. Another 53-hour closure will be required in the future to demolish the north side of the span. The existing bridge is 72 feet wide and 579 feet long. Caltrans says the new bridge will be 82 feet wide and 608 feet long with supporting columns relocated to allow construction of an additional freeway lane.

Atlantis astronauts fix, haul gear on last shuttle flight CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP) — Astronauts kept busy fixing and hauling gear aboard the linked Atlantis and International Space Station on Saturday, as the last shuttle flight drew closer to an end. Atlantis’ pilots got a jammed storage locker open and retrieved air purifiers for the space station. In more good news, they brought back online a computer that abruptly stopped working two days earlier, the second computer failure in five days aboard Atlantis. NASA wants to run more diagnostic testing, but so far the computer seems to be working fine, officials said. Engineers have yet to figure out why the computer shut down Thursday; cosmic radiation is suspected. The first computer failure was traced to a bad switch throw and quickly fixed. Atlantis has five of these


main computers, each one critical for the trip back to Earth. Over on the space station, astronauts fixed a treadmill and carried more supplies back and forth. Atlantis delivered several tons of food, clothes and other household items — enough to keep the space station operating for a full year. The giant cargo canister is being filled back up with station trash that Atlantis will retur n to Earth on Thursday — the very last landing by a space shuttle.

New Performing Arts Classes: Guitar, Voice, Piano, Band and Orchestra!!!


The Roswell Yucca Recreation Center is one of the finest staples in Roswell’s rich history. The Yucca has been in the community for decades and it gives everyone who goes through its doors good memories and many opportunities to partake in recreational programs. The Yucca has seen many generations go Fencing at Healthy Kids in the Park. through its doors and has grown to accommodate the increasing number of youth coming to the center. The Yucca Center is under the direction of Cuitlahuac “Cuic” Gonzalez, and his vision for the Yucca has produced new classes and opportunities for the youth and public. The newest program to be introduced is music performing arts classes that feature guitar, voice, piano, band and orchestra. “We are still in the process of looking for qualified teachers to teach music,” said Tom Blake, recreation leader. “We would like to see it develop as a respectable music training area at a reasonable cost to individuals.” The idea for music programs comes from Gonzalez’s love for music. With the success of Concerts in the Park, which Gonzalez directs with help of the Parks and Recreation Department, he wanted to carry on the music throughout the year and have it flourish in the center. “I want musicians to have a home here at the Yucca. Most musicians are practicing in their garages like in the old days and here we can offer them the rehearsal space,” said Gonzalez. The program is open to individuals and music lovers of all ages. There are several other performing arts classes that extend beyond music with ballet classes taught by Jahanna McDaniel. The age for youths to start ballet is 3 and up. Belly Karate at Healthy Kids in the Park. dancing and American tribal-style dance is a newer program taught by Stacy Ennis. This unique form of dancing even includes a mother daughter class. The Yucca is also home to the longest running performing arts program, The Roswell Folklorico taught by Frank Herrera. The Yucca is in full swing preparing for the fall, however, their summer programs have been very successful. Getting Roswell’s youth outside and active is so important to the Yucca that they have created Healthy Kids in the Park. Youth can partake in various sports like lacrosse, soccer and other outdoor sports. The program was nominated for recreation program of the year. Many other summer camps include the middle and high school band, tennis, volleyball, British soccer, cheer, basketball, football and the newest, skateboard camp. A popular program in the summer at the Yucca is the Vacation Fun Program that begins at 7:45 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. under the direction of Shirley Williams. Youth get the opportunity to go on field trips, swimming, go to the movies, help the community and staff at Sunset Villa. The Chaves County Extension Office has also helped with the program by teaching the youth in the program how to sew, make tote bags, pillowcases and scrunchies. This summer 70 youth participated in the program. With summer coming to a close the Mayor Del Jurney participates in Healthy Kids in the Park. Yucca has many other year-long activities to consider. Some of them include various fitness classes including Zumba, aerobics, karate, judo, and fencing. The Yucca has been renovating its North Wing to accommodate the newest addition to the center, a library. The new library will work well in conjunction with the already existing Teen Multipurpose Room and Computer Room. Gonzalez has worked hard to make the Yucca an enjoyable place for everyone to enjoy. The Yucca is a reflection on his hard work and dedication to bring enjoyable programs and camps to Roswell for all to enjoy. “My paycheck is when I see kids’ smiling faces when they are here; it makes my day.” The Yucca is located at 500 S. Richardson Ave. If anyone has any questions about the Yucca or its programs, call 624-6719.

Young people need to move out and grow up

Q: At what age should young adults be encouraged to leave home and live on their own? Juli: This is a question more and more parents are asking because there does not seem to be a “norm.” In generations past, high school graduation (or at least college graduation) was the accepted milestone at which most young adults were expected to become financially independent. Most young adults married and began their occupations or careers by their early 20s. Now, adult responsibilities seem somehow to be too much for a 22-year-old. Many parents have adopted the philosophy that kids should “live a little” before settling down. As a result, it is common for parents to still be housing and financially supporting young adults into their late 20s or early 30s. The common trend to


delay marriage, commitment to a career and parenthood may appear to be a gift to this generation of young adults. In my opinion, it is more of a handicap. Yes, young adults don’t typically have the wisdom to think through the lifetime decisions they are faced with. That is why they need mentors and coaches to help them. However, the greatest teacher in life is the process of making difficult choices and living with the consequences of those choices. Rather than protecting young adults from pain, delaying the big decisions of life keeps them immature and paralyzed. While there is no “magic age” to deter mine when young adults should be encouraged to leave the nest, many are staying dependent beyond what is healthy. Ironically, the same kids who were pushed to start preschool

If you really want to give your 20-something a jump on life, don’t get in the way of the adult responsibilities that promote maturity, self-sacrifice and perseverance. Q: I’m at a loss as to how to teach my kids sound financial principles when banks, businesses and the gover nment are setting such a poor example. Do you have any suggestions? Jim: Regardless of what’s happening with the economy, many parents, sadly, are not doing a great

job of teaching their kids the basic principles of money management. Perhaps financial expert Dave Ramsey put it best when he said, “We’re raising an entire generation with ‘sucker’ stamped on their foreheads.” Consider these statistics: -- Just 26 percent of kids ages 13 to 21 say their parents taught them to manage money. -- Eighty percent of undergraduates have at least one credit card and nearly half of college graduates carry four or more credit cards. -- Only 13 states have

educational requirements for financial literacy -- and those don’t start until high school. As parents, we need to start sooner than that. A good, old-fashioned allowance and a piggy bank might be a decent beginning. But Ramsey and others have proposed employing THREE piggy banks for each child: one for spending, one for saving and one for giving. Kids need to learn that once the “spend” money runs out, it’s gone, so they need to budget wisely. And they need to delay gratification for the bigger -ticket items for which they’re saving. Most importantly, they need to learn the importance of setting aside money to give to charity or the church. More than anything, though, our kids need Mom and Dad to set a good example. They’re not going to learn to spend, save and

give wisely if their parents are living on credit and debt. In fact, I believe there are many adults out there who could benefit from the “three piggy bank” approach!

National ice-cream month is under way July 1 marked the beginning of National Ice Cream Month! Clearly, the best way to celebrate is by eating some ice cream. In 1984, President Ronald Reagan designated July as National Ice Cream Month and the third Sunday of the month as National Ice Cream Day. Recognizing ice cream as a fun food enjoyed by a full 90% of the nation's population, in the proclamation, President Reagan called for all people of the United States to observe these events with “appropriate ceremonies and activities.” Today is National Ice Cream Day. Happy National Ice Cream Month from Blue Bunny!

Indian Mississippi oyster harvest could be lost relics found in oil spill cleanup

Roswell Daily Record

PASS CHRISTIAN, Miss. (AP) — Mississippi oystermen can’t seem to catch a break. Over the years, the industry has been damaged by Hurricane Katrina, cheap imports, high gas prices and the perception Gulf oysters weren’t safe to eat because of the BP oil spill. Now, the upcoming harvest season may be lost. Oysters, which thrive in salt water, are dying in large numbers because of the fresh water that poured in from spillways opened to take pressure off levees protecting cities from the rising Mississippi River this summer. The oyster harvest, which usually runs from October to April, could be restricted or canceled altogether to give the oysters a chance to recover. “Giving the entire reef a break for this season would be an option,” said Joe Jewell, assistant director of fisheries for the Mississippi Department of Marine Resources. The agency expects to make its recommendation next month; the final decision is with a five-member commission appointed by the governor to represent seafood processors, environmental organizations, charter boat operators and fishermen. Oystermen, seafood processors and restaurants that cater to customers who enjoy the local catch are waiting in agony. Jerry Forte, a Pass Christian seafood dealer who mainly sells shrimp and oysters to shops, said he won’t make any money if the oyster harvest is a wash. “You can’t survive on nothing,” Forte said. “Your bills still come in, but you don’t make no money.” Jennifer Jenkins, a manager at Crystal Seas Oysters in Pass Christian, which processes oysters and supplies them to restaurants, said her business was already off roughly 25 percent. And the company is still fighting for money from the fund set up by BP PLC to compensate victims of last year’s oil spill. “We haven’t had a normal year here since Katrina,” Jenkins said. The hurricane struck Aug. 29, 2005, wiping out vast stretches of the Mississippi coast in addition to the horrific damage done to New Orleans. Crystal Seas Oysters can pull oysters from its dock in Louisiana and buy oysters in Texas, but some customers prefer to buy locally harvested oysters, Jenkins said. And, she added, “once you start paying freight, it’s just a big-

ger expense to incur.” Forte said he doesn’t even “fool with out-of-state oysters because you can’t make any money like that.” “You just try to keep your head above water until times are better,” Forte said. Oysters are a stationary species, and that is why they were hit hard when record amounts of fresh water headed down the Mississippi River were diverted into Lake Pontchartrain and from there into Mississippi Sound after the Bonnet Carre Spillway in Louisiana was opened in May. Shrimp, finfish and crabs are mobile and can seek saltier water, so they weren’t affected as much. “When one of these events occur, it causes a domino impact through the fisheries,” Jewell said. “The oyster fishermen tend to feel those impacts much more than any other components of the seafood industry.” Jewell said field crews have been out in recent weeks assessing the impact on Mississippi oyster beds. They have reported a 50 percent to 65 percent mortality rate in some areas, and a 90 percent to 95 percent mortality rate in others. Pass Christian has seen an impact, while the most significant impact has been on the reefs in the far western Mississippi Sound, including the St. Joe and

Waveland areas, Jewell said. “In the years to come, nature is healing itself and there may be the potential for next year to have an increased harvest,” he said. “But this year coming, we’re going to see a significant reduction in harvest. There’s no way around that.” In an average year, the harvest in Mississippi produces roughly 300,000 to 350,000 sacks of oysters, according to Jewell. With no major production during the oil spill because of the perception beds were tainted, only about 35,000 to 40,000 sacks were harvested last fall, he said. Other options could be to have a limited season, allow both dredging and tonging but with restricted sack limits, or perhaps not allow dredging. Tonging involves using a set of tongs to scoop oysters off the bottom of the Mississippi Sound. Dredging involves using a basket attached to a toothed bar. The basket is dragged by boat over a reef and oysters are scraped off the bottom by the bar, caught in the basket, and then hauled aboard a boat, according to the DMR’s website. In Louisiana, officials took precautions to try to limit the damage to oyster beds there. They closed two oyster harvesting areas that were receiving large amounts of fresh water intrusion. They also

announced that oysters in some areas east of the Mississippi River could be relocated from beds that were to be inundated with fresh water to other seed grounds or oyster leases out of the way of the flood waters coming through. A special permit was required. Roughly 13 million pounds of oysters are harvested in Louisiana in an average year, according to the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries. Oyster beds saw a substantial impact from the fresh water, though official mortality numbers are not available yet, spokeswoman Olivia Watkins said. The process of evaluating the situation there is continuing. Byron Encalade, president of Louisiana Oystermen’s Association, said he believes coastal erosion and the oil spill had a much greater impact on oyster harvesting in southern Louisiana than the recent fresh water did. Back in Pass Christian, along the Gulf of Mexico, residents and businesses have experienced numerous shocks in recent years to the fragile oyster industry. “At some point in time you just throw your hands up in the air and say, ‘We’re going to do this again?”’ Jenkins, the Crystal Seas Oysters manager, said with a laugh.

CAMINADA HEADLAND, La. (AP) — Cleanup after the BP oil spill has turned up dozens of sites where archaeologists are finding human and animal bones, pottery and primitive weapons left behind by prehistoric Indian settlements. It’s a trove of new clues about the Gulf Coast’s mound dwellers more than 1,300 years ago, but scientists also fear the remains could be damaged by oil or lost to erosion before they can be fully studied. So far, teams of archaeologists hired by the oil giant have visited more than 100 sites and sent back a growing list of finds to labs for radiocarbon dating and other tests, though extensive excavations haven’t been done. Scholars have also accompanied cleanup crews to make sure they don’t unwittingly throw away relics. Larry Murphy is lead archeologist for a council of government agencies and trustees overseeing the oil cleanup. He says neither the discovery of the sites — nor the money to study them — would have come as quickly without the spill.

Atlanta public schools created culture of cheating, fear

ATLANTA (AP) — Teachers spent nights huddled in a back room, erasing wrong answers on students’ test sheets and filling in the correct bubbles. At another school, struggling students were seated next to higherperforming classmates so they could copy answers. Those and other confessions are contained in a new state report that reveals how far some Atlanta public schools went to raise test scores in the nation’s largest-ever cheating scandal. Investigators concluded that nearly half the city’s schools allowed the cheating to go unchecked for as long as a decade, beginning in 2001. Administrators — pressured to maintain high scores under the federal No Child Left Behind law — punished or fired those who reported anything amiss and created a culture of “fear, intimidation and retaliation,” according to the report released earlier this month, two years after officials noticed a suspicious spike in some scores. The report names 178 teachers and principals, and 82 of those confessed. Tens of thousands of children at the 44 schools, most in the city’s poorest neighborhoods, were allowed to advance to higher grades, even though they didn’t know basic concepts. One teacher told investigators the district was “run like the mob.” “Everybody was in fear,” another teacher said in the report. “It is not that the teachers are bad people and want to do it. It is that

Students at Emma Hutchinson School in Atlanta leave after the day’s classes, Wednesday. they are scared.” For teachers and their bosses, the stakes were high: Schools that perform poorly and fail to meet certain benchmarks under the federal law can face sharp sanctions. They may be forced to offer extra tutoring, allow parents to transfer children to better schools, or fire teachers and administrators who don’t pass muster. Experts say the cheating scandal — which involved more schools and teachers than any other in U.S. history — has led to soulsearching among other urban districts facing cheating investigations and those that have seen a rapid rise in test scores. In Georgia, teachers complained to investigators that some students arrived at middle school reading at a first-grade level. But, they said, principals insisted

those students had to pass their standardized tests. Teachers were either ordered to cheat or pressured by administrators until they felt they had no choice, authorities said. One principal forced a teacher to crawl under a desk during a faculty meeting because her test scores were low. Another principal told teachers that “Walmart is hiring” and “the door swings both ways,” the report said. Another principal told a teacher on her first day that the school did whatever was necessary to meet testing benchmarks, even if that meant “breaking the rules.” Teachers from the investigation contacted by The Associated Press did not return calls or declined to comment. Educators named in the investigation could face

criminal charges ranging from tampering with state documents to lying to investigators. And many could lose their teaching licenses. Parents of children enrolled at the 44 schools say they are frustrated and angry. Shawnna Hayes-Tavares said her son’s test scores dropped dramatically after he transferred out of Slater Elementary. She said a testing coordinator at the new school told her the test scores could have been inflated. The possibility that there could have been cheating “gives me and him a false sense of security as to where he is,” she said. Uncertainty about her son’s progress “has not afforded us the opportunity to do more remediation in those areas of weakness,” Hayes-Tavares said. “It

robbed us of those opportunities. We’re going to try to play catch up now.” At Slater, investigators found multiple teachers changed answers on tests or allowed students to look up answers to questions. Teachers would gather in the school’s media center to change wrong answers with the blessing of administrators, investigators said. For Renee Columbus, whose 4-year -old son is starting pre-kindergarten at one of the schools in the state investigation, news of the cheating probe was disheartening. “Right now it’s our only option,” said Columbus, who lives in south Atlanta. “I’m hoping by the time he gets into kindergarten, we’ll be in a different school district.” The fallout from the state report has only begun. So far, at least four of the

district’s top administrators and two principals have been removed and put on paid leave. The head of the district’s human resources department resigned after investigators said she destroyed documents and tried to cover up the extent of the cheating. The schools could owe hundreds of thousands of dollars in federal funding they received for good test performance — money that would be lost at a time when the state’s education budget has already been slashed by millions. Districts are being forced to lay off or furlough teachers and cut programs to make ends meet. And at least one member of the Atlanta school board wants to reclaim tens of thousands of dollars in bonus money that former Superintendent Beverly Hall received for the high test scores.

My sister “Beth” told her son and daughter she’d gladly pay for new noses for them. They were offended because they are happy with their looks. (At least, they were until their mother denigrated them.) Both of my sisters have had plastic surgery. They can afford it and that’s their business. But they make it our business by publicly congratulating each other on how well they have “aged.” What do you think about this, Abby? Am I right? NATURAL WOMAN IN CALIFORNIA

She doesn’t have the time or money to continue participating in these events. She asked me if she should back out now or level with the bride that some of her requests are a little over the top.

If the bride’s schedule of events is more than your daughter can handle, she needs to speak up. If the dresses will cause financial hardship, the bride needs to know so she can either scale back the cost or find replacements for whomever is supposed to wear them. If this is not agreeable for the bride, your daughter can “support” her friend with the rest of the wedding guests. She does not have to be a member of the wedding party to do that.

Fact check: Obama stretches poll findings on debt Roswell Daily Record

WASHINGTON (AP) — You might say President Barack Obama cut himself some extra margin of error when he claimed 80 percent of Americans want the debt crisis solved with a mix of tax increases and spending cuts. Polling does suggest, as Obama said, that Americans overall and even Republican voters are open to higher taxes as part of the solution. But claiming support from 8 in 10 people was a reach. A look at his statements on Friday about polling and how they compare with the actual findings: OBAMA: “You have 80 percent of the American people who support a balanced approach. Eighty percent of the American people support an approach that includes revenues and includes cuts. So the notion that somehow

the American people aren’t sold is not the problem.” THE POLLS: A Gallup poll, cited by the White House as the main basis for Obama’s statement, actually found that 69 percent supported tackling the deficit with a mix of spending cuts and tax increases. An additional 4 percent favored tax increases only — a group that does not endorse Obama’s “balanced” approach but could reasonably be counted on his side. That brings his support to 73 percent at most in that poll. Obama can get closer to 80 percent, but only by counting those who don’t belong in that group: people who declined to give an opinion or volunteered an idea of their own to reduce deficits.

Overall, the poll found Americans favor spending cuts much more than tax increases, while supporting a mix of both. The polling, with a margin of error of plus or minus 4 percentage points, was conducted July 7-10. Similarly, in a Quinnipiac poll this week, 67 percent favored raising taxes on the wealthy and corporations as part of the debtcontrol effort while 25 percent said that should be done with spending cuts only. OBAMA: “The clear majority of Republican voters think that any deficit reduction package should have a balanced approach and should include some revenues.” THE POLLING: The Gallup poll indeed found majority Republican support for a mix of spending cuts and higher taxes. Other polls

Sunday, July 17, 2011

have not. In the Gallup poll, 41 percent of Republicans supported a package of mostly spending cuts — meaning some tax increases — and 24 percent favored an equal share of higher tax revenue and lower federal spending. Counting the few who wanted tax increases to be the main driver of deficit reduction, 67 percent of Republicans favored a mixed approach. The poll surveyed adults generally and was not limited to voters, as Obama suggested. In contrast, 48 percent of Republicans in the Quinnipiac poll — which was limited to registered voters — said the problem should be tackled with spending cuts only and just 43 percent said to include some tax increases, too.

Farmers worry about effect of $30B in cuts WASHINGTON (AP) — Far m groups are rushing to save government subsidies they’ve long received. President Barack Obama and lawmakers have targeted $30 billion or more in agriculture spending cuts as they try to negotiate a deficit-reduction deal. Farmers say they know they will have to take a hit. But they fear too many cuts will send booming crop prices into a dive, raising the potential for another 1980s-era farm crisis. Budget negotiators are looking at three pots of agriculture money: •direct payments, which are subsidies that farmers get regardless of what they grow. •crop insurance, which helps farmers in the event of losses. •conservation money, which pays farmers to protect environmentally sensitive land. As happens every five years when Congress renews a farm bill, lobbyists and lawmakers from farming states are fighting to save their piece of the pie. Now it’s just happening a little earlier, and largely out of public view, as Washington tries to find a way to raise the nation’s debt limit and cut spending before the government defaults on some payments Aug. 2. A new farm bill isn’t due until next year but could be pushed up if lawmakers are forced to find immediate savings. A budget deal could dictate the terms of the cuts or leave it up to the congressional agriculture committees. The chair man of the House Agriculture Committee, Rep. Frank Lucas, R-Okla., says he hopes negotiators will tell lawmakers exactly how much they want cut from the farm budget and let the agriculture committees hash out the details. Negotiators are looking at reductions of $30 billion to $35 billion over 10 years, which amounts to a more than a 15 percent cut from the three programs. “If they give us an absolute number, we will meet that number,” Lucas said. “But don’t make major policy decisions on the back of a piece of yellow paper or a napkin at the White House rural America and production agriculture have to live with.” Rep. Collin Peterson of Minnesota, the top Democrat on the committee, says such large cuts would make it almost impossible for Congress to write a new farm bill and figure out how to protect producers from a downturn. “It’s a mess is what it is,” he said.

No evidence of wrongdoing at Dow Jones

NEW YORK (AP) — The independent committee charged with monitoring editorial integrity at The Wall Street Journal said Saturday it has found no evidence of wrongdoing at the Journal or Dow Jones & Co., which are owned by News Corp. The group also said in a statement that it did not believe Les Hinton’s resignation as publisher of the Journal and chief executive of Dow Jones & Co. was related to activities at the Journal or Dow Jones. Hinton resigned Friday, a result of the phone-hacking scandal at some of News Corp.’s British newspapers. He had been chairman of News Corp.’s British newspaper for some of the years its staffers allegedly hacked into cell phones in search of news scoops.

Negotiators at the White House and congressional leaders were originally looking to cut about $33 billion, or roughly the amount to be spent in direct payments over the next decade, according to several congressional and farm industry officials familiar with the talks. Direct payments are farm subsidies popular in the South with cotton and rice farmers who say they need the money because their crops are expensive. They are a frequent target of conservatives and farm subsidy critics because, unlike other subsidies, direct payments are made regardless of whether prices fall. As rice and cotton groups have pushed back, negotiators have discussed making fewer cuts from direct payment programs and cutting deeper from crop insurance or conservation programs. Those familiar with the talks said it is unclear if negotiators will dictate how the money is spent. The officials spoke on conditional of anonymity to freely discuss developments in the private negotiations.

Midwestern corn and soybean farmers generally depend on crop insurance more than Southerners do, and lawmakers and groups that represent that region are fighting for direct payment cuts instead of crop insurance cuts. Crop insurance is subsidized by the government, and Congress and the Agriculture Department have frequently used the program to find extra savings in recent years. The department took about $6 billion from the program just last year. Any additional cuts to crop insurance would probably mean lower and fewer payouts for farmers, advocates say. Like those who depend on direct payments, they say that destroying what farm country calls its “safety net” could hurl farmers into a depression when prices drop. As in previous downturns, farmers would then tur n to Congress to bail them out. “We are going to put ourselves in the ’85 farm crisis again,” says Chandler Goule, the top lobbyist for the National Farmers Union. “Do these politicians want us to

produce food, fiber and fuel in this country or do they want us to import it all from China? I think they are cutting farm subsidies because they don’t understand what they truly do.” Though a strong farm coalition has protected agriculture interests in Congress for decades, Goule says farm interests have had a tougher time since the November 2010 elections. That’s when many moderate, rural Democrats were swept out of office and replaced by conservatives who are more focused on spending cuts than farm subsidies. The House Agriculture Committee lost more than a dozen Democrats after the elections. Anthony Bush of the National Corn Growers Association, who grows corn, soybean and wheat in Ohio, says he believes the nation’s food supply is at risk if money is taken away. But he is also concerned about the national debt. “I am as worried about that as I am how it affects my farm,” he said.

BUSINESS company, PSMH. The principals of Brookside, Greg Mahaney and Michael Thompson, received 800,000 shares of common stock of PSMH for their equity in Brook-

side Mortgage. Mahaney has also joined the board of directors of PSMH. Brookside Mortgage, located in Tulsa, Okla., has been a fixture in

the home lending market for many years. In 2011, they originated in excess of $120,000,000 of loans in Tulsa, Oklahoma City, and Norman, Oklahoma. Mahaney stated, “We believe this association with PSMH will greatly enhance our business and create opportunities for us that did not exist prior to the merger.” Jeffrey Smith, founder and director of the company, said, “We are extremely pleased to complete this merger with Brookside. Greg and Mike run a very professional and profitable mortgage business and we are delighted to have them and their team or board. We look forward to a long and prosperous relationship.”

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — A federal judge on Friday found that the city of San Francisco has a right to ban tobacco sales in stores with pharmacies even if the pharmacy is not the store’s main business. U.S. District Judge Claudia Wilken dismissed a suit filed by grocery chain Safeway Inc. against the city that argued grocery stores had a constitutional right to sell cigarettes. Wilken wrote that the city was acting within its rightful authority. “The purpose of the ... ordinance, to promote the public health by preventing people from becoming addicted to tobacco and by helping those already addicted to stop smoking, is legitimate and even compelling,” she wrote.

Mexico does ‘The Beetle’

MEXICO CITY (AP) — Call it the (new) Beetle. The world’s first models of the redesigned Volkswagen sedan began rolling off production lines at the company’s plant in central Mexico on Friday, with a bigger trunk but also a bit of linguistic baggage. Company spokesman Israel Victoria says the firm prefers to call it simply “The Beetle,” because “otherwise, it would be ‘the new, new Beetle’ or ‘the newest Beetle.’” It is not to be confused with the New Beetle, a redesign of the original 1930s stalwart launched in 1997. VW’s plant in Puebla state produced 1.15 million units of the bulbous, rounded New Beetle between 1997 and 2010.

Iran currency change?

TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — Iran’s central bank is asking citizens their opinions on new names for the country’s currency. Visitors to the bank’s website can choose from several names, including rial — the current name — toman, parsi and derik. In the online survey, the bank also asks respondents how many zeros should be removed from the currency. The government has proposed lopping off four zeros. The biggest Iranian banknote is 100,000 rials, which is equivalent to around $9.

Govt to test SPORTSWEAR: risk-based A m a r r i a g e b e t w e e n f a s h i o n , a t h l e t i c s airport screening New program aims to encourage faster screening at airport checkpoints

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Transportation Security Administration said Thursday it will test a program to pre-screen a small group of select air travelers who volunteer more personal information about themselves so they can be vetted to get faster screening at airport checkpoints. The new program represents the Obama administration’s first attempt at a more risk-based, intelligencedriven passenger screening program that could respond to travelers’ complaints that the government is not using common sense when it screens all passengers at airports in the same manner. The change comes amid a typically busy summer travel season and on the heels of a public outcry over TSA agents giving enhanced pat-downs to children and the elderly — people who ostensibly pose no security threat. The test program was expected to begin sometime this fall. It applies only to a small number of frequent travelers who are U.S. citizens. The TSA said it anticipates that between 5,000 and 8,000 travelers will participate in the trial. Specifically, the pilot program covers selected travelers enrolled in Delta Air Lines’ frequent-flier program or three other government-trusted traveler programs — known as Global Entry, NEXUS and SENTRI — involving people who travel regularly through Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International and Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County airports; and travelers enrolled in American Airlines’ frequent-flier program, or the three other government programs, who travel regularly through Miami International and Dallas-Fort Worth International airports. There is no cost to participate in the test program. “These improvements will enable our officers to focus their efforts on higher risk areas,” said TSA Administrator John Pistole. This pre-screening pilot test would be on top of the existing pre-screening for all passengers who travel to, from or within the U.S. Currently these travelers must provide their full names as they appear on their government identifications, as well as their birthdates and gender. This allows the government to compare passenger manifests with government databases to spot possible terrorists before they board a plane.

NEW YORK (AP) — Some of the most fashion-forward looks have involved teamwork between designers of athletic sportswear and runway-worthy couture. It’s what led to bikinis, bike shorts, tennis skirts — actually skirts that hit above the ankle, in general — and the popularization of stretch fabrics. The influence of activewear has gone beyond nitty-gritty sports since at least the 19th century when women started wearing split skirts for biking, explains Colleen Hill, co-curator of an exhibit at The Museum at FIT (Fashion Institute of Technology) called “Sporting Life”: Think of the men’s tweed hunting jacket that became the uniform for college professors, the dancewear that turned into streetwear in the disco era and the sexy scuba dresses that were a favorite of the 1990s supermodels. Figure skating, yachting and skiing seem to be endless sources of inspiration for designers and favorites of consumers who probably have never actually laced up, booted up, or hoisted a sail.

Churches debate whether to marry gays

NEW YORK (AP) — After same-sex marriage becomes legal here on July 24, gay priests with partners in the Episcopal Diocese of Long Island will head to the altar. They have to. Their bishop set a ninemonth deadline for them to marry or stop living together. Next door, meanwhile, the Episcopal bishop of New York says he also expects gay clergy in committed relationships to wed “in due course.” Still, this longtime supporter of gay rights says churches in his diocese are off limits for gay weddings until he receives clearer liturgical guidance from the national denomination. As more states legalize same-sex marriage, religious groups with ambiguous policies on homosexuality are divided over whether they should allow the ceremonies in local congregations. The decision is especially complex in the mainline Protestant denominations that have yet to fully resolve their disagreements over the Bible and homosexuality. Many have taken steps toward acceptance of gay ordination and same-gender couples without changing the official definition of marriage in church constitutions and canons. With the exception of the United Church of Christ, which approved gay marriage six years ago, none of the larger mainline churches has a national liturgy for same-sex weddings or even blessing ceremonies. The result is a patchwork of church policies in states where gays can civilly wed — not only for lay people, but also for gay clergy who want to marry their partners. “It’s a challenge for us,” said Tony De La Rosa, administrator of the Presbytery of New York City, a regional body of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.). “I think this is a moment of great tumult in the sights of the church.” The New York regional body of the United Methodist Church issued a statement reminding local congregations that the Methodist Book of Discipline bars any celebration of same-gender unions, but encouraged congregants to “extend God’s love” to each other, “particularly those with whom we disagree.”

Just last Sunday, the Presbyterian Church formally lifted barriers to ordination for gays and lesbians who are not celibate, although individual congregations had been hiring gay pastors and conducting same-sex blessing ceremonies for years. De La Rosa expects a similar mix of responses to gay marriage laws, even though a minister who conducts a samegender marriage is at risk of possible disciplinary action by the denomination since the ceremonies are not officially authorized. De La Rosa, who is gay, said he does not plan to wed because the marriage would not be recognized in California, where he and his partner are residents. New York churches can look for guidance to religious leaders in the five other states where gay marriage is already legal: Massachusetts, Connecticut, Ver mont, New Hampshire and Iowa, plus the District of Columbia. The New England Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, which includes four of the five states with gay marriage, issued a document stating that pastors can choose to solemnize same-sex marriages in individual churches that give their approval. The Upstate New York Synod, which oversees Lutheran churches in the Albany area, distributed that document to local leaders ahead of an upcoming discussion on the gay marriage law. The Evangelical Lutheran Church in America formally abolished a celibacy requirement for gay and lesbian clergy more than a year ago, but still defines marriage as between one man and one woman. The Rev. David Preisinger, an assistant to the Upstate New York bishop, said the bishop has indicated that she will not take action against clergy who perform the ceremonies. He said churches in his region have already received several requests for weddings and believes they will take place soon. “There are some congregations that are very open to it and others that don’t want anything to do with it,” Preisinger said. The Episcopal Church blazed a trail, and enraged fellow Anglicans worldwide, in

2003 by consecrating the first openly gay bishop, V. Gene Robinson of New Hampshire. On same-sex marriage, Episcopal dioceses have been guided by a 2009 resolution from the General Convention, the church’s top national policy body, that asked for a “generous pastoral response” to gay couples, especially in states with samesex marriage or civil unions. However, bishops disagree about what the resolution means. Each has cited the measure when issuing dramatically different policies. Even before the New York legislature had passed the gay marriage bill last month, Bishop Gladstone Adams, who leads the Syracuse-based Episcopal Diocese of Central New York, had asked the local liturgy committee to draft a rite for same-gender marriage. Adams said individual priests and parishes could decide whether to conduct the ceremonies. He has not yet set a policy on marriage for clergy living with same-gender partners. In the Diocese of New York, Bishop Mark Sisk said local priests could bless couples who marry elsewhere in a civil ceremony, but could not solemnize the marriages. “I do not believe that resolution ... empowered bishops to authorize clergy to perform such marriages,” Sisk wrote in a statement. “Nor do I believe that it is appropriate for clergy to circumvent the vows we have taken by becoming separately licensed by the state to perform such marriages.” His position stunned many Episcopalians. The New York diocese is considered so gay-friendly that the local chapter of the national Episcopal gay advocacy group, Integrity, focuses instead on outreach to other gay and lesbians seeking a religious community, according to Mary O’Shaughnessy, New York City coordinator for the organization. Sisk’s spokesman said the bishop won’t move forward without an approved liturgy. Episcopalians are drafting prayers for blessing same-gender couples that advocates hope will be accepted next year by the General Convention.

Visitors on Vespas take graffiti art tour in Miami Roswell Daily Record

MIAMI (AP) — Graffiti was once considered a sign of urban decay, the sort of thing that might keep tourists away from a neighborhood. Now, not only is it an accepted art form, but it’s also the subject of a new tour in one of Miami’s trendiest neighborhoods, Wynwood, where legal outdoor murals by graffiti artists cover the walls near art galleries and restaurants. T h e two-hour tour — w h i c h t a k e s place on Vespas — is offered by a comp a n y called R o a m Rides. It starts with a 15minute AP Photo ride from M i a m i Dino Marrone of Adelaide, B e a c h Australia, stops to look at over the a graffiti covered wall durVenetian ing a two-hour graffiti tour Causeway given by Roam Rides in to the the Wynwood neighborWynwood hood of Miami, June 30. Arts District, considered the mecca of Miami’s emerging arts scene, and includes four or five stops to survey the area’s best graf fiti. The tour ends with lunch at a happening Wynwood restaurant. Once considered a rough neighborhood, Wynwood has become a destination for artists from all over the world. Art galleries abound and events are held here each December as part of the Art Basel Miami Beach art fair. Wynwood is also now home to one of the world’s largest installations of murals by multiple graffiti artists. “It’s gotten to be so pervasive and it really brightens up the neighborhood,” Kit Sullivan of Roam Rides said. “It’s so not what you would expect of Miami,” said Jesse Bull, an economics professor who took one of Roam Rides’ recent graffiti tours. “The graffiti has kind of added to that. It livens it up and makes it fresh and artsy and I think that’s a good thing.” Guides point out work by different local artists — such as Typoe and “Tribe Called Phresh” aka TCP — while explaining the evolution of graffiti from the days when artists plastered their names on vacant buildings and train cars as a way to gain street cred. Building owners give permission to artists to spray paint their designs, and these legal pieces share the walls of dozens of neighborhood art galleries and chic restaurants. They’re easy to distinguish from illegal graffiti, which is often done fast, in secret and at night, with a single color or very few colors. The sanctioned murals, in contrast, allow artists to take their time, use multiple colors and work in-depth in large spaces with elaborate details. “It’s definitely a changing art form,” Sullivan said. “It’s gotten to the point where a lot of these guys don’t even use their names at all. They just have a certain distinctive style. You can recognize it when you see it.” For example, artist Chor Boogie’s signature work includes geometric elements and half-hidden faces, as well as an eye. Major paint companies are even helping graffiti artists make the transition to a legitimate art form by donating spray paint. “Graffiti has been a bad word in America for a long time. We are trying to change that,” said Jayson Moreira, co-owner of Montana Colors North America, a spray paint company based in San Francisco.

‘William Tell’ scores bulls-eye



KATONAH, N.Y. (AP) — The rhapsodic strains of the hymn to freedom that closes “William Tell” were still hovering in the night air, the soloists had all taken their bows, and most of the audience was on its feet. Then conductor Will Crutchfield stepped forward and, holding up a bound score of the opera, invited one final round of cheers — for the composer, Gioachino Rossini. It was a fitting end to an evening that offered a rare chance to hear Rossini’s last opera played, if not in full, at least close enough to convey the epic scope of this remarkable work. Friday’s concert performance, the second of two at the Caramoor International Music Festival, lasted more than four hours (including two intermissions) — and that still meant trimming an hour or so of the score. Rossini composed “Tell,” an adaptation of play by Friedrich Schiller about the Swiss national hero, for the Paris Opera in 1829. Then, for reasons that have confounded musicologists ever since, he stopped writing operas, even though he lived for nearly 40 more years. Whatever prompted his decision, it’s safe to say Rossini went out on a high note. “Tell” is imbued with nobility, filled with grand choruses, virtuoso arias and exciting ensembles.

In this July 9 photo, provided by Caramoor, soprano Julianna Di Giacomo performs as Mathilde in William Tell by Rossini during a Bel Canto presentation at Caramoor in Katonah, N.Y. It’s too bad the length of the piece, along with structural weaknesses in the libretto, have kept it from being known to a wider audience — except of course for the overture, with its “Lone Ranger” theme. Crutchfield, who led the

Orchestra of St. Luke’s in an enthusiastic if sometimes rough-and-ready performance, assembled a fine, all-American cast of soloists for this latest entry in his Bel Canto at Caramoor series. The most noteworthy voice

belonged to soprano Juliana Di Giacomo, who sang the role of Mathilde, the Austrian princess who defects from the enemy to join with the Swiss cause. Di Giacomo has a big, refulgent sound that can be thrilling at full volume (and occasionally squally) but even more impressive when she scales it back. Her opening aria “Sombre forets” (“Dark forest”) rightly brought the house down. As her sweetheart, Arnold, tenor Michael Spyres coped admirably with the cruel tessitura that requires repeated high Cs — and even a couple of C sharps. His voice sounded small next to Di Giacomo’s, but they blended beautifully in harmony for their love duet. As the title character, bassbaritone Daniel Mobbs brought a firm, resonant sound and dignified bearing to a role that offers few opportunities for fireworks — except in his exhortation to his son before he must shoot the apple off his head. The role of the son, Jemmy is written for female voice, and soprano Talise Trevigne displayed a sparkling tone and vivid presence. Mezzo-soprano Vanessa Cariddi made the most of her few opportunities as Tell’s wife, Hedwige, and baritone Scott Bearden boomed out menacing tones as the villain, Gesler.

new Smithsonian exhibit WASHINGTON (AP) — The Washington building known as the “temple of invention” when it was built in 1836 to hold the nation’s patents is revisiting its roots, hosting a new “Great Hall of American Wonders” to explore 19th-century innovations through art. The idea for this major exhibit that opened Friday at the Smithsonian American Art Museum was sparked in part by talk among experts that the United States is losing its edge in innovation as other countries spend more on research, export more technology and foreign companies gain more U.S. patents. Curators pulled together artworks, inventions and scientific discoveries from the 1800s in an unusual project for the museum to show how Americans came to believe they have a “special genius” for invention. Guest curator Claire Perry said the early decades of the 19th century were a time of crisis as the nation’s last founding fathers died, causing worries the country might not survive. Perry, who specializes in 19th-century culture, previously was a curator at Stanford University. “The new generation was terrified they might fail,” she said. “But they were energized by their shared belief in American ingenuity, by the idea that the people of the United States were naturalborn problem solvers.” During this time, the nation’s inventions were put on display to be celebrated. Some 100,000 peo-

ple each year visited the old patent office building in downtown Washington to marvel at Eli Whitney’s cotton gin, Cyrus McCormick’s grain-harvesting reaper and Samuel Morse’s telegraph, among many other inventions by average citizens. Now part of the Smithsonian, the building once again is displaying patent models from the 1800s. They include designs for a machine to make paper bags, a sewing machine, a locomotive and handgun prototypes in the exhibit organized with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, which is now based in Alexandria, Va. Perry said she drew inspiration from Charles Willson Peale, a painter and naturalist from Maryland who founded one of the first museums in Philadelphia, because he insisted that invention, not the revolutionary generation, was the key to building the nation. A primary image of the exhibit is Peale’s self-portrait, “The Artist in His Museum,” showing him pulling back a curtain to reveal the scientific and artistic wonders held at his museum to spark a visitor’s curiosity. The exhibit retraces such inventions as the first mass-produced American clock, the gun and the railroad with patent models, diagrams and drawings. There are paintings by such artists as Thomas Eakins, Thomas Moran and Morse, the telegraph inventor. “The mash up of art, science and technology in the exhibition

is about breaking down traditional boundaries that block our inventive juices,” Perry said. “In this time where people are sort of wondering about what we are, we’re still inventors, but we need to frame our own perceptions in that way.” Perry said the nation’s inventive spirit has been forgotten somewhat as other countries have challenged U.S. dominance. Many point to declines in U.S. education in the arts, science and math, compared to global competitors, and the White House has called for a reinvestment in training for such creative disciplines. Among the 162 objects on display is the golden cast of the final spike that completed the transcontinental railroad in 1869. There is also a drawing for President Abraham Lincoln’s patent application for a device that could buoy steamboat vessels stuck in shallow water. Other sections examine technology’s impact on natural resources, such as the once-vast buffalo herds. Museum Director Elizabeth Broun said it’s rare to pull so many historical works and threedimensional objects together in a place where they were once held up as examples of the nation’s progress. “Each one in itself is a story, a treasure, that has a background that helps flesh out a piece of the puzzle,” she said. “The Great American Hall of Wonders” will be on view until January.

Campbell shines in 1st show since Alzheimer’s news BILOXI, Miss. (AP) — Glen Campbell leaned over his blue electric guitar, plucked a few strings and made a sour face. “Dadgum it,” he said. Campbell, 75, fiddled a few seconds longer while standing backstage Friday night at the IP Casino and finally found a perfect D chord. “There it is,” he said, before turning on his heel and marching into the spotlight. He launched into “Gentle on my Mind” and — without so much as clearing his throat — nailed it. “That first one is a doozey, ain’t it?” Campbell asked the crowd. It was classic Glen Campbell. Alzheimer’s disease may have changed a lot of things in the Country Music Hall of Famer’s life, but his ability to create sounds that still resonate in our shared memory with his blue G&L Comanche on “By the T ime I Get to Phoenix” or his Hamer 12-string on “Souther n Nights” is virtually untouched. In the night’s finest moment, Campbell brought the crowd to its feet after nailing the delicate runs in the middle of his classic “Wichita Lineman.” Campbell’s first performance since announcing he has Alzheimer’s, the degenerative brain disease that’s slowly robbing him of his memories and abilities, was largely a triumph. His family and

road crew were worried he might be rusty after a long layoff since his last performance. Except for a few flubbed lyrics, quickly corrected with the help of teleprompters, Campbell and his band powered through a tight 22-song set interspersed with selfdeprecating jokes. “I tell you I’m happy to

Jane Fonda: QVC axed my appearance over politics

NEW YORK (AP) — Jane Fonda says she’s been banished from QVC amid concerns about her political past. The network says it was a routine programming change. Fonda was set to appear on the homeshopping channel on Saturday to promote her new book on aging, “Prime Time.” But the day before, she learned her segment had been cancelled. In a statement posted on her website, Fonda says QVC told her of receiving “a lot of calls” from viewers criticizing her opposition to the Vietnam War and threatening to boycott the show if she was allowed to appear. Fonda goes on to say she is “deeply disappointed that QVC caved to this kind of insane pressure” and declares, “I love my country.” Paul Capelli, a spokesman for West Chester, Pa.-based QVC, confirmed Fonda’s cancelled appearance, but specified no reason. “It’s not unusual to have a schedule change with our shows and guests with little or no notice,” he said in an e-mail. Fonda is not currently re-scheduled to appear, he said. Fonda was dubbed “Hanoi Jane” nearly 40 years ago after visiting the North Vietnamese capital, where she made radio broadcasts critical of U.S. war policy. While there, she was photographed sitting on an anti-aircraft gun laughing and clapping. Though she still defends her anti-war activism, Fonda has acknowledged that the photo incident was “a betrayal” of American forces. “That two-minute lapse of sanity will haunt me until the day I die,” she wrote in her 2006 autobiography. The 73-year-old actress won Oscars for her films “Coming Home” and “Klute.” Besides her books, she has also produced and starred in a number of bestselling exercise videos.


be here,” Campbell said. “At my age I’m happy to be anywhere. It seems like I’ve been doing this since Hitler was a corporal.” Fronting a band that includes four of his children and close friends, Campbell played favorites like “Rhinestone Cowboy” and “Galveston” and finished the evening with

easy-going all day, joking his way through rehearsal and posing for pictures with fans before and after the show. Two drove six hours and showed up with homemade shirts that read “Glen Campbell Fan.” A couple flew in from Seattle. Another fan noted he keeps Campbell’s music in heavy rotation on his iPod. “It’s wonderful to meet someone with taste!” Campbell said with a laugh. T our manager Bill Maclay said the good mood is due to the presence of Campbell’s family. His wife, Kim, began coming on the road with him three years ago. And his band includes his oldest daughter, Debby Campbell-Cloyd, who sings harmony, and his three youngest children: sons Cal on drums and Shannon on guitar, and daughter Ashley on banjo and keys. All those familiar faces make Campbell feel comfortable. “The road is home right now,” Maclay said. As much as Campbell enjoyed being on stage, the few moments he spent in the wings while watching Debby and Ashley sing a cover of Fleetwood Mac’s “Landslide” may have been his favorite. “I like to hear sister harmonies,” he said in a whisper. “I don’t know what it is. They’re amazing. I’m really blessed. It’s awesome.”
