The Roswell school district was among the 86 of 89 school districts in the state that did not make its adequate yearly progress mark in 2011, according to data released Friday afternoon by the New Mexico Public Education Department. The AYP rankings show that 720 out of 831, or 86 percent, of New Mexico schools did not make adequate progress under the federal No Child Left Behind Act of 2001, a NMPED statement read. Only 42

percent of students in the state who were tested per for med at grade level in math and science, while 50 percent were deemed proficient in reading. NMPED officials said the dismal rankings signaled the need for reform. “The message couldn’t be clearer,” Education Secretary-designate Hanna Skandera said in the statement. “Our children need education reform now.” In Roswell, only one out of 20 schools made AYP, Sidney Gutierrez Middle Charter School.

The three school districts that made AYP were Roy Municipal Schools, Vaughn Municipal Schools and Des Moines Municipal Schools.

Fifty percent of all Roswell students tested were not proficient in math, and 47 percent were not proficient in reading. Roswell students who struggled most in math were students with disabilities, who tested 74 percent

not proficient; English Language Learners, who tested 71 percent not proficient; and Hispanic students, who tested 54 percent not proficient. African-American students and economically disadvantaged students also tested 54 percent not proficient in math. Asian students were the most proficient in math with only 25 percent non-proficiency, although only 39 Asian students were tested, compared to the 3,294 Hispanic students tested, or the 4,061 See AYP, Page A3

In less than one week’s time, a group of Roswell children auditioned, were cast, memorized lines, and brushed up on singing and

dancing skills to produce a main stage play, which was performed at the Pueblo Auditorium, Saturday afternoon. The play, “Pinocchio,” was staged just five days after the children passed through auditions. However, it included a full set, elaborate

costumes, music and dance — elements expected from a fully rehearsed performance. The fast and furious theatre experience came to Roswell courtesy of the Missoula Children’s Theatre Camp, a program that sends

Dems, GOP agree: Renovations coming nicely; Time grows short RCLT still needs money WASHINGTON (AP) — Precariously short of time, congressional leaders struggled in urgent, weekend-long talks to avert an unprecedented government default, desperate to show enough progress to head off a plunge in stock prices when Asian markets open ahead of the U.S. workweek. With the White House consigned to the periphery of negotiations, Republicans sought as much as $4 trillion in deficit cuts over a decade as a condition for raising the nation’s debt limit. But after hours of staff negotiations followed by a meeting of Congress’ top four leaders, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid accused GOP leaders of intransigence, adding he would not accept anything less than a deal that raised the debt limit through 2012. “Their unwillingness to compromise is pushing us to the brink of a default on the full faith and credit of the United States. We have run out of time for politics. Now is the time for cooperation,” he said in a sharply worded statement. A spokesman for House

Speaker John Boehner, Michael Steel, responded mildly. “Like the President and the entire bipartisan, bicameral congressional leadership, we continue to believe that defaulting on the full faith and credit of the United States is not an option,” he said in a written statement.

Lawmakers fear a big drop in investor confidence in stocks and bonds could start in Asia and sweep toward Europe and the Americas, causing U.S. stock values to plunge on Monday.

Obama met earlier in the day with the Republican and Democratic leaders — but only briefly— the day after Boehner abruptly broke of f his own oncepromising compromise talks with the White House. In talks through the afternoon in the Capitol, congressional aides were looking at an immediate debt limit increase of about See DEBT, Page A3

Wild West attitude still Norway police arrive 90 prevalent in New Mexico minutes after firing began

ALBUQUERQUE (AP) — The arrest of Albuquerque’s chief criminal judge on charges he raped a prostitute is just the latest example of a seemingly wild West-no-rules-attitude permeating numerous levels of authority in New Mexico. Just this year, the mayor, police chief and a trustee of the small border town of Columbus were accused of helping smuggle hundreds of guns into Mexico. A judge in Las Cruces was charged in a bribery scandal with alleged ties to former Gov. Bill Richardson. The Albuquerque Police Department has been under increased scrutiny for an escalation in questionable police shootings of unarmed civilians. One of its officers is facing charges that he killed his wife to hide his involvement in a car theft ring. And the city’s public safety director just quit amidst a probe of his handling of a car accident involving his wife. Additionally, one of the state’s most distinguished professors was recently accused of helping run a sophisticated online prostitution ring. The for mer Santa Fe sheriff last week pleaded guilty to embezzlement. And several pay-toplay investigations continue into dealings of former Richardson administration officials and others close to the Democrat who ran the state for eight years. This just to cite several recent, prominent examples. Whether or not the headline-making cases are the result of systemic flaws within the state’s culture of politics and leadership is a topic of endless debate in this arid, mostly rural border state of 2 million that attracts a mix of celebrities and the wealthy to its mountains and artistic enclaves like Santa Fe and Taos. “You’ve got corruption all over the place,” said Doug Turner, who chaired the commission that oversees judicial conduct from 1995 to 2002. “We just have a unique brand of it.’“ “We are big state with not very many people. And so communities are tight. People know one another. They get involved in each other’s lives, in their political campaigns. They go to events. It’s a fairly small group of people. The impact feels significantly greater in that environment.” Indeed, Republican Gov. Susana Martinez capitalized on a backlash against a growing round of allegations of pay-to-play in the Richardson administration, successfully campaigning

last year to return honesty and integrity to the state after two ter ms under Richardson. Richardson himself has never been charged but his name has sur faced in a number of investigations. And the GOP is already bringing the anti-corruption soap box back around in its attempts to turn the purple state red in next year’s elections, putting out a press release Thursday touting Republican District Attorney Matt Chandler’s conviction of “another corrupt public official.” Chandler of Clovis handled the case against Democratic Santa Fe Sherif f Greg Solano, who pleaded guilty to selling some $74,000 worth of county equipment on eBay. Ironically, the arrest of state District Judge Pat Murdoch Tuesday on sexual penetration and witness intimidation charges came just days after Martinez — in an address to a meeting of the state bar — called on the state’s judges and lawyers to take steps to help bolster confidence in the legal system. She cited the Las Cruces case in which state District Judge Michael Murphy is accused of telling a potential judicial candidate that she needed to make payments to a Democratic activist close to Richardson if she wanted to be considered for a seat on the bench. Tur ner said it was unclear to him if the arrest of Murdoch Tuesday and the case against Judge Murphy in Las Cruces signaled a rise in judicial wrongdoing. “I can tell you from my eight years on the commission, there are a lot of issues in the judicial system in the state,” said Turner, who ran against Martinez in last year’s Republican primary. “I don’t think it’s better, but I can’t say it’s getting worse. They might be getting more press coverage because of the salacious nature of the charges. In reality, we’ve had some very good judges who’ve done some very stupid things.” Turner said many of the problems with the state judiciary have to do with the lower level courts, magistrate judges “who aren’t necessarily legal professionals and therefore have a tendency to become very important people in small communities. The result is

sometimes the abuse of authority.” Less common, he said, are infractions at the district court or higher levels. Tony Scarborough, a retired state Supreme Court Justice, said he thinks the system works just fine. “I have my doubts about the merit of the charges,” he said of the Murdoch case. Police acknowledged the prostitute — who videotaped one of what she said were eight alleged encounters with the judge — may have been trying to extort from the judge and may, herself, face charges. She has accused him of perfor ming oral sex on her over her objections and attempts to push him away. Vice Sgt. Matt Thompson told the Albuquerque Journal he believes the case against Murdoch is credible. But Murdoch’s attorney, Ahmed Assad, said his client will be vindicated. Several other members of the judiciary have also found themselves on the wrong side of the law in recent years, including Appeals Court Judge Robert Robles, who resigned this year after being arrested for drunken driving and Ber nalillo County Metro Court Judge Victoria Grant, who retired in 2010 after being charged with 21 counts of misconduct, mostly involving allegations she mistreated defendants. Asked if he thought the state’s historical political reputation for corruption filtered down to the bench and other posts of authority, Turner said, “Absolutely. Power corrupts.”

OSLO, Norway (AP) — Police arrived at an island massacre about an hour and a half after a gunman first opened fire, slowed because they didn’t have quick access to a helicopter and then couldn’t find a boat to make their way to the scene just several hundred yards offshore. The assailant surrendered when police finally reached him, but 82 people died before that. Survivors of the shooting spree have described hiding and fleeing into the water to escape the gunman, but a police briefing Saturday detailed for the first time how long the terror lasted — and how long victims waited for help. The shooting came on the heels of what police told The Associated Press was an “Oklahoma citytype” bombing in Oslo’s downtown: It targeted a government building, was allegedly perpetrated by a homegrown assailant and used the same mix of fertilizer and fuel that blew up a federal building in the U.S. in 1995. In all, at least 89 people were killed in the twin attacks that police are blaming on the same suspect, 32-year-old Norwegian Anders Behring Breivik. “He has confessed to the factual circumstances,” Breivik’s defense lawyer, Geir Lippestad, told public broadcaster NRK. Lippestad said his client had also made some comments about his motives. Norwegian news agency NTB said the suspect wrote a 1,500-page manifesto before the attack in which he attacked multiculturalism and Muslim immigration. The manifesto also described how to acquire explosives and contained pictures of Breivik, NTB said. Oslo


police declined to comment on the report. A SWAT team was dispatched to the island more than 50 minutes after people vacationing at a campground said they heard shooting across the lake, according to Police Chief Sveinung Sponheim. The drive to the lake took about 20 minutes, and once there, the team took another 20 minutes to find a boat. Footage filmed from a helicopter that showed the gunman firing into the water added to the impression that police were slow to the scene. They chose to drive, Sponheim said, because their helicopter wasn’t on standby. At least 82 people were killed on the island, but police said four or five people were still missing. Divers have been searching the surrounding waters, and Sponheim said the missing may have drowned. Police earlier said there was still an unexploded device on the island, but it later turned out to be fake. The attack followed the explosion of a bomb packed into a panel truck outside the building that houses the prime minister’s of fice in Oslo, according to a police official Seven people were killed. The Oslo University hospital said it has so far received 11 wounded from the bombing and 19 people from the camp shooting. Police have charged Breivik under Norway’s terror law. He will be arraigned on Monday when a court decides whether police can continue to hold him as the investigation continues. Authorities have not given a motive for the attacks, but both were in areas connected to the

Labor Party, which leads a coalition government. Even police confessed to not knowing much about the suspect, but details trickled out about him all day: He had ties to a right-leaning political party, he posted on Christian fundamentalist websites, and he rented a farm where police found 9,000-11,000 pounds of fertilizer. Police said the suspect is talking to them and has admitted to firing weapons on the island. It was not clear if he had confessed to anything else he is accused of. Earlier in the day, a far m supply store said they had alerted police that he bought six metric tons of fertilizer, which can be used in homemade bombs. That’s at least one metric ton more than was found at the farm, according to police. Gun violence is rare in Norway, where the average policeman patrolling in the streets doesn’t carry a firearm. Reports that the assailant was motivated by political ideology were shocking to many Norwegians, who pride themselves on the openness of their society. Indeed, Norway is almost synonymous with the kind of free expression being exercised by the youth at the political retreat. King Harald V, Norway’s figurehead monarch, vowed Saturday that those values would remain unchanged. “I remain convinced that the belief in freedom is stronger than fear. I remain convinced in the belief of an open Norwegian democracy and society. I remain convinced in the belief in our ability to live freely and safely in our own country,” said the king.

Another $1.4 trillion in additional borrowing authority would be needed to satisfy Obama’s demand that any deal extend into 2013. “A two-step process is inevitable,” Steel said, although and based on Reid’s accusation, it was clear the two sides had not yet been able to bridge their differences. On one point, there was no disagreement — time is running out. Congressional aides labored to produce a tentative agreement by Monday, congressional officials said.

formed the best in reading, with 36 percent not proficient, while Asian students did second best, with 37 percent not proficient. The data also show that the graduation rate for Roswell high schools was 73 percent. Multiple phone calls to the office of Roswell Independent School District Michael Gottlieb went unreturned, Friday. The three school districts that made AYP were Roy Municipal Schools, Vaughn Municipal Schools and Des Moines Municipal Schools. AYP represents the annual academic targets in reading and math, and other indicators, such as graduation and attendance, that the state, school districts

and schools must reach to be considered on track with the federally mandated goal of 100 percent proficiency by the school year 20132014. All New Mexico public school students enrolled in grades 3-8 and 11 take the state Standard Based Assesment test, which determines AYP status. The number of schools in New Mexico that did not make AYP has steadily increased over the past five years, according to NMPED statistics. In 2007, 54 percent of schools did not make AYP; 2008, 67 percent; 2009, 68 percent; 2010, 76 percent, and in 2011, 86 percent did not make AYP. Shortly after the data were released at 1 p.m.,

the House and Senate to clear legislation in time for Obama’s signature by the Aug. 2 deadline, a week from Tuesday. More urgently, Boehner told rank-and-file Republicans in a conference call he hoped to be able to announce a “viable framework for progress” by 4 p.m. EDT on Sunday, before the stock markets open in Japan and elsewhere in Asia, according to two participants. Lawmakers fear a big drop in investor confidence in stocks and bonds could start in Asia and sweep toward Europe and the Americas, causing U.S. stock values to plunge on Monday. Barring action by Aug. 2, the Treasury will run out of the money needed to pay all its bills, triggering a possible default that could seriously damage the

domestic economy and send damaging waves across the globe. Obama has warned repeatedly of the possibility of a spike in interest rates that could af fect Americans’ mortgages, credit cards and other for ms of personal debt. Under nor mal procedures, Boehner would need to have legislation on the House floor by Wednesday to allow enough time for a measure to reach Obama’s desk in time to meet the debt-limit deadline. Negotiators were working against two avowedly nonnegotiable demands — Obama’s insistence on a plan that assures no rerun of the current crisis until 2013 at the earliest, and Boehner’s requirement that spending cuts over 10 years must exceed the size of any increase in borrowing authority — without

any rise in taxes. To comply with both edicts, under most estimates, legislation would have to cut more than $2.4 trillion across the next decade, since that is the amount of additional borrowing authority the Treasury is expected to require to pay the nation’s bills. Also complicating the talks were divisions within each party. Liberal Democrats are generally opposed to cuts in Medicare and Social Security, while Obama hopes to use the negotiations to appeal to voters who want big cuts in federal deficits. Tea party-backed Republicans, dozens of whom are in the House, adamantly oppose any higher taxes, while Obama has made more revenue the price of admission to the talks.

and one helicopter. Nearly 450 people are assigned to the fires. Authorities say two homes and four outbuildings are being threatened by the fires. Friday, Skandera said in a statement that the NMPED plans to submit a waiver in the fall to the U.S. Department of Education to replace the No Child Left Behind accountability rankings with New Mexico’s own A through F grading system. She added that federal education officials have appeared willing to grant such waivers to states that want to expand on reforms while still raising accountability for students. “Educators know almost 87 percent of our schools aren’t failing,” Skandera said in the statement. “And that’s why we need reforms like our A through F school grading system.”

Campaign staff playing big role in administration

SANTA FE — Recently I wrote about the departure to Washington, D.C., of Brian Moore, a deputy chief of staff in the office of Gov. Susana Martinez. Since then, we hear of the resignation of Tourism Department Deputy Secretary Toni Balzano, after what she termed six months of bullying capped by her exclusion from the news conference announcing the Billy the Kid manhunt. Both departures were attributed to the influence of Martinez’s chief political advisor Jay McCleskey. McCleskey also was Martinez’s chief adviser during her gubernatorial campaign last year. The Albuquerque Journal recently referred to McCleskey as “the fifth floor” because of his dominance over the Capitol’s fourth floor offices of Gov. Martinez. In the eight months since Martinez’s election last November, she has been accused of taking actions influenced more by politics than by good public policy. Many




also say Martinez is running government as though she still is in campaign mode. That may be due to McCleskey’s continued influence over the governor’s actions. Martinez often has called him her top adviser. And he apparently still is despite not working for the state. McCleskey owns McCleskey Media Strategies, a consulting service he formed shortly after Martinez took office. Several other top members of Martinez’s campaign staff have been placed in high positions in the governor’s office. McCleskey still seems to be calling the shots for the governor and these state payrollers. Brian

Roswell Daily Record

Moore was not part of Martinez’s campaign staff so he wasn’t in this apparent inner circle. Chief of Staff Keith Gardner wasn’t either. Both were Republican leaders in the state House of Representatives. That background seemed ideal to head the governor’s office. They were familiar with state government and would provide a logical bridge to the Legislature. But that bridge was underutilized during this year’s legislative session. Relations with the Legislature were rocky. Legislative leaders felt the governor’s office was taking a my-way-or-the-highway attitude. Efforts to get through to the governor nearly always stopped with Gardner and it became obvious Gardner wasn’t calling the shots. Martinez’s campaign staff had an inordinate amount of control. This staff wasn’t a group of young men from the East sent in to take over. They mostly appear to have New Mexico roots. McCleskey, according to Las

Cruces blogger Heath Haussamen, got his political start as a student at New Mexico State University. In 1996, he took a government class with professor Jose Z. Garcia and got the political bug. Professor Garcia’s name might be familiar to you. He was one of Gov. Martinez’s first political appointees, as the secretary of the Higher Education Department. Garcia has been active in state Democratic politics. After college, McCleskey went on to manage campaigns for Republican Sen. Bill Payne and Republican Rep. John Sanchez. He then managed Sanchez’s unsuccessful campaign for governor in 2002. McCleskey then had stints working for the state GOP and the Republican National Committee. Recently McCleskey was chief strategist for Albuquerque Mayor R.J. Berry’s successful campaign and then did media for Secretary of State Diana Duran’s campaign. R yan Cangiolosi, Martinez’s other deputy chief of staff, has a B.A. and M.B.A. from the Univer-

sity of New Mexico. He was Martinez’s campaign manager. Matthew Stackpole, the governor’s assistant general counsel, is a graduate of UNM Law School. And communications director, Scott Darnell, a Farmington native, has two degrees from UNM. Toni Balzano was a holdover from the Richardson administration and resigned last week before being fired from her position as deputy secretary of the Tourism Department. She says she endured six months of slander by McCleskey and a hostile work environment. McCleskey says if you don’t make enemies, you’re no good at your job. It appears that a Martinez administration that seemed to be getting off to a pretty quiet start suddenly has become wild and wooly. Who will be next?

The Horn of Africa is once again facing a devastating drought — the worst in 60 years. More than 10 million people are in urgent need of food, water and emergency health care. The United Nations is expected to declare a famine in parts of southern Somalia, where 3,500 refugees flee a day. During the 1984-1985 famine in Ethiopia and Eritrea, the West blamed the lack of an early warning system for the failure to prevent a tragedy that left one million dead. Today, no such excuse exists. The international community has the benefit of a sophisticated early warning system. The United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs has been sending out famine alerts for the region since last year, warning of the deteriorating situation, caused by drought, rising food prices and conflict. In March, the alerts grew more urgent: “Contingency planning should begin immediately.” When an alarm of impending famine is sounded, the whole world should be galvanized into action. Why did this fail to happen? Surely the international community can do better than this. Guest Editorial The Globe and Mail, Toronto

Phone-hacking scandal

The Murdoch family gave as good as they got during their Commons select committee hearing into what they knew (or didn’t know) about the phone-hacking scandal that has engulfed their empire. What had been billed as a merciless grilling of Rupert Murdoch, the world’s most powerful media tycoon, and his son, James, was an engrossing affair. Yet perhaps the greatest spirit was shown by Wendi Deng, Murdoch’s wife, who came to her husband’s aid by giving the numbskull who pushed shaving foam in his face a splendid right-hander. If we thought we had seen everything in this ongoing affair, then we had reckoned without the element of farce. But what, if anything, did we learn from the day’s events? In many ways, the most important witness was hindsight. From Rupert and James Murdoch, from Rebekah Brooks, the former News International chief executive, and from the two former police chiefs who have also been brought down by the scandal, the refrain was the same: if we had known then what we know now we would have acted differently. Rupert Murdoch felt “betrayed” by those below him, whom he had relied on to watch over what was just a small outpost of his global business. James Murdoch was unaware of the extent of the hacking until several celebrities brought private actions for damages. In addition, No. 10 revealed further details of Prime Minister David Cameron’s close relationship with Brooks — having met with their partners for a Christmas dinner on Dec. 23 last year, they met up again on Boxing Day. Why has it taken so long for this information to come out? Guest Editorial The Telegraph, London DEAR DR. GOTT: I have been a Type 2 diabetic for 20 years. I have been having a lot of trouble keeping my blood sugar levels steady. They keep dropping down to 50. Two years ago, I woke up and was unable to walk or talk. My husband thought I was having a stroke and he rushed me to the ER. I wasn’t, but my blood sugar level had dropped to 30! In the last couple of months my morning sugar has been between 85 and 110, but by lunch it has dropped to between 50 and 85. What can I eat to keep my levels up? My doctor is no help, and my nutritionist keeps telling me to eat salads and vegetables, which worsen my diarrhea. I have diar-

Expensive energy plan needs to be repealed MARITA NOON ENERGY MAKES AMERICA GREAT INC.

Thanks to New Mexico legislators, higher energy bills are on their way The price of everything is going up and much of the increase can be traced back to energy costs. With unemployment high and the economy threatening a double dip, wouldn’t you think our elected officials would be doing everything possible to cut energy costs and, therefore, lower prices to help ease the pain the public is feeling?

Leader Michael Sanchez, voted for mandatory renewable energy standards — called an RPS for Renewable Portfolio Standards. The RPS requires that an increasing percentage of the state’s electricity come from renewable sources — primarily wind and solar — by set dates: 15 percent by 2015, 20 percent by 2020. Like New Mexico, most states voted in their RPS back when the economy was thriving and “green” energy sounded like a good idea — after all the wind and the sun are “free.” Voting against “renewables” was akin to not liking puppies. Elected officials from

Have you received a diagnosis such as irritable bowel syndrome as a cause for your diarrhea? The answers to all these questions can directly impact my answer and how I guide you toward getting the best help. Let’s start with your diarrhea. This can be a side effect of many medications. It can also be a symptom of several digestive disorders, such as irritable bowel syndrome, ulcerative colitis or

both parties voted for the RPS. We now know that while the wind blows and the sun shines, converting them to electricity is expensive — even in a state like New Mexico with an abundance of both! We also know that with the troubled economy, no one wants more expensive energy — especially if there are questions about how “green” it really is. We need to repeal the RPS mandates that sounded so attractive just a few years ago. In New Mexico, a citizen working group has spent the past 10 months in meetings with PNM — the primary state

Many diabetics suffer from delayed gastric emptying, but diarrhea may occur, especially in those with advanced disease. T reatment depends on the cause, but it can include SLOWLY increasing fiber intake, consuming adequate water, using OTC antidiarrheal drugs (with physician approval), and avoiding dairy and fatty or highly seasoned foods.

utility company. The goal: to produce a report — as required by the Public Regulatory Commission — that outlines how the company plans to meet the state’s RPS. That report was delivered to the PRC on July 18. The 236-page document can be summed up in three simple words: more expensive electricity. Many different computer models were run to determine the least-cost way to meet the mandates. The results should not be surprising. The leastcost model was based on coal

Living life in a world where lives end OPINION II

Roswell Daily Record

It is something that touches all of our lives. It is just a matter of time and it will happen to each of us. We are just passing through on our journey to eternity. The ending of the life of others impacts our own lives. Pets become a part of our lives, especially if you get them when they are very young. Over the years our home has had many kittens and puppies. Generally they live long lives and after their life has been lived, they die. We had a calico kitten who was a few years old when our first child was born. For her entire life she was the third oldest member of our home after my wife and me. Then, when our children were in high school, our calico, at age 21, died one day. We had a Dalmatian that we got as a puppy who lived to be 13 years old. One day out in our backyard she died. Outside our backyard fence we have three dogs and a cat buried under various trees. May they rest in peace. A few weeks ago our second Dalmatian, Chipper, who we also got as a puppy, at age 14, was in his final days. He spent the first 12 years of his life with the other older Dalmatian and when she died, he lived the first day of his life without his best friend. The death of our older Dalmatian changed our male Dalmatian’s



world for the rest of his days. In recent months Chipper was fighting a tumor and having difficulty standing up. My wife and I had to make a tough decision, do we let him suffer his final days or do we put him under? Fourteen dog years would be in the vicinity of 90 human years. We were leaving on a two-week trip and were concerned that he would pass away while we were gone. After weighing all of the options, including euthanasia, we decided it was time to take him into the vet and have him put to sleep. We set the date and time and my wife and I planned our schedules accordingly. I didn’t think that putting down a pet would be so hard. Feeding him his last meal, brushing him for the final time, putting a leash on him and lifting him into our truck, giving him a kiss good bye, returning home in tears ... many of you have been there before. In times like this we have to remember the joy that the once

— but it does not meet the mandates. The least-cost that does meet the mandates requires the addition of wind, solar and gas-fueled power plants and shuts down some of the older, existing, fullyfunctional, coal-fueled power plants. The model favored by advocates of “green” energy cuts out coal all together and requires the building of new gasfueled plants for base load power and to back up the renewables. This third model is the most expensive and therefore is unlikely to be selected by the PRC. But even the mid-range plan will cost New Mexicans more than a billion dollars — and this is just for required CO2 penal-

as diabetic hypoglycemia, which occurs because there is too much insulin and not enough sugar in the blood. It can result from taking too much diabetes medication or insulin, not eating enough for the amount of medication or insulin used, or skipping a meal. Three glucose pills, 4 ounces of fruit juice or regular (not diet) soda, five to six hard candies, or 1 tablespoon of sugar, jelly or honey are all appropriate methods of raising the blood sugar. It is important to recheck sugar levels 15 to 20 minutes later. If it remains low, ingest another sugary food or drink. You should tell your friends and family of symptoms to be on the lookout for in case of an emergency where you cannot treat yourself during a hypoglycemic episode. A medical bracelet stating that you are a diabetic may also be beneficial so that first-responders will be able to provide proper treatment. Because you claim your physician

puppy had brought into our life over his years: a seemingly smile on his face when he panted, the games of fetch, the licks on the cheek, the tail wagging, how we were the most important person in the world to him each time we went out in our backyard. We now have a little Boston Terrier, Buddy, who is 90 percent tongue. He is just over a year old. It is comforting to have him around, especially in light of the recent situation with Chipper. Now is the time to enjoy Buddy and we do. God willing, he will live a long life ahead bringing us much joy. Over the course of my half century of life, every pet I have ever had, has in time died. After each pet dies I look back and I ask the question, “Does the sorrow of losing the pet outweigh the joy brought into our world over the life of the pet?” Without exception the answer has always been “no.” My daughter was required to take a class last year in college as part of her medical training called “Death and Dying.” I know, it sounds like a very depressing class. As she went through the semester she shared with me some of the exercises the professor had the students do. She brought the textbook home and I was looking through its content recently.

ties, not the actual power plant capital costs. That increase will be felt in everything and disproportionally hurts the poor. Not to mention the increased costs to the cities within the state who are trying to balance their budgets while keeping the lights on. Coal and nuclear were found to be the lowest cost energy generating systems available, yet they are not in PNM’s portfolio for the foreseeable future. The report states that renewable energy systems are expensive, yet they are in the plan. It is bad enough that New Mexico has to deal with the rising costs forced on us from the federal level — such as the EPA’s Best Available Retrofit Technology regulations, but to have our own local legislators vote for higher energy costs that will kill the economic climate in New isn’t helpful, I suggest you find an internal medicine doctor (who can also serve as your primary care physician). He or she can work with you to determine what is causing your sugars to vary so drastically, as well as figuring out the cause of your diarrhea and if the two are somehow connected. He or she can also refer to appropriate specialists if needed.

There was a time when tennis was considered something of a gentleman’s game. But watching Rafael Nadal and his peers pound the ball and move on the court, you can see how physically demanding the game is. The American Chiropractic Association, in fact, endorses tennis as excellent exercise. If you’re just taking up the game, the ACA recommends that you take a few lessons to learn the proper mechanics, an investment that ultimately will minimize your risk of injuring a wrist, shoulder or your back. Warming up and stretching – both before and after you play – is a good way to help avoid injury. Your chiropractor can suggest some warm-up exercises. The cost of your racquet and clothing should be governed by your budget. But make sure your shoes are sturdy and designed for tennis. Playing tennis in a shoe that is designed for running, for instance, is an invitation to injury. The soles of running shoes are not designed for lateral movement. In the unfortunate event of a tennis injury, visit your chiropractor for treatment. In the meantime, ask her or him for advice on how to keep your tennis time safe and fun.

T ruth be known, death is a part of life. It touches each one of us during our living years and then brings a conclusion to our own life. Each of us has the option of seeking to look the other way, but at the end of the day, death is like gravity, it exists whether we want to think about it or not. There are many professions that deal with death and death related topics. From us attorneys who do wills, heath care directives, and probates to professionals who work with hospice programs to physicians and nurses who sometimes deal daily or weekly with individuals in their final days, death is something that occurs. We have no choice but to learn to deal with it. After the death of a loved one there a necessary mourning process, but then our own lives continue on. My daughter’s school textbook had the students do a lot of examining of their own lives. One of the exercises was for each student to chart out the life they were going to live including setting out when they would get married, what they would do in their professional career, how long they were going to live, and what would be written in their newspaper obituary. Talk about being forced to think about things you don’t

Mexico is baffling. Once these plans are approved by the PRC and the plants are built, we will see a huge jump in our bills — but by then, when people become outraged, it will be too late. If PNM is required to implement this plan, they rightly will need to recoup their costs and there will be a rate increase. The time to fight such increases is now, when the report makes the higher costs clear — right there in black and white (and color). The governor needs to call a special session to deal with the facts. The legislators need to know that you want the RPS (SB 418, passed in 2007) repealed before it is too late! Call the governor. Call your senator and state representative — if you do not know who they are, has an easy search feature that will give you the names and

My challenge to you has several elements. First, don’t take any day for granted. Live life to the fullest each day that you have. Second, don’t be afraid to become attached to a pet who will someday leave you, what you give and get out of the relationship will far outweigh the grieving that will someday result. And third, understand that death is as much a part of life as being born. It is the second bookend in each of our lives. One day death will take each one of those we love and will also take each one of us. The mortality rate in our community is 100 percent. Regardless, each day is a gift, live it as such. Don’t assume you have countless tomorrows. Any day we live, we may be four days from our funeral. Just a thought ...

With scorching temperatures, watch out for dehydration

It’s hot!! Last week, we talked about hyperthermia, overheating of the body. This week, let’s highlight dehydration as another summer safety concer n. Specifically, dehydration is defined as excessive loss of body fluids, and can be caused by many things including flu and malnutrition, and of course from plain old failure to replenish liquids lost from sweating and urination (Not drinking enough water). Your doctor tells you to drink plenty of fluids when you are ill, because your body uses fluids to expel toxins as well as to keep your system flexible, lubricated and running smooth-

ly. Dehydration and blood pressure problems often go hand in hand due to the loss of electrolytes. Mild dehydration may cause such things as thirst, sleepiness or tiredness, decreased urination, headaches, and dizziness, but severe dehydration – a medical emergency – can cause extreme symptoms such as extreme thirst, very dry mouth and skin, low blood pressure, no tears, fever and so forth. If you're a healthy adult, you can usually treat mild to moderate dehydration by drinking more fluids, such as water or a sports drink (Gatorade, Powerade, others). But you should get

immediate medical care if you develop severe signs and symptoms such as extreme thirst, a lack of urination, shriveled skin, dizziness and confusion. The average person loses between two and three liters of water a day

CFCC spring grant recipients

through the breath, sweat, and urine. This number can increase or decrease based on the types of activities that a person engages in. Heavy exercise can cause a body to lose more than 2 liters an hour! To prevent dehydration you simply need to replenish the liquids that are lost throughout the day. Many resources will tell you to drink 8 glasses of water a day or some other factor, but the honest truth is that every BODY is different and only you will know how much water YOU need to be at your best. That’s right, WATER. Not soda, not juice, not sugar-drinks. Pay attention to your fluid

loss and take special care to replenish it as it is being lost. By the time you feel thirsty you are already dehydrated - you want to avoid becoming thirsty in the first place. When a person becomes dehydrated they have also lost electrolytes, so it is very important to replenish them along with the water. The type of electrolytes needed for rehydration are sodium and potassium salts usually found in sports drinks like Gatorade and pediatric formulas like Pedialite. If the symptoms appear to be minor, replenish the person’s water slowly and replace the electrolytes as well.

If a person is showing some of the more severe symptoms of dehydration, call an ambulance immediately. He or she may be past the point where ingestion of the proper fluids will help. Get them medical attention immediately.

ARIES (March 21-April 19)  A conversation is inevitable. Talks could take interesting twists and turns. Clarify, if need be. Echo what you think you are hearing. Confusion seems to be the nature of the moment. You could feel pulled between two choices. Tonight: Hang out with a friend. TAURUS (April 20-May 20)  Be careful with your spending. You could cause yourself a problem out of the blue. Confusion might surround a friendship. This person’s expectation doesn’t mesh with your ideas. Somehow, a misunderstanding has been brewing without your knowledge. Tonight: A talk is inevitable. GEMINI (May 21-June 20)  You find your energy and seem to be on top of your game. You might not intend to cause confusion, but somehow you do it anyway. Just when you get a situation straightened out, you have a surprise of sorts. Tonight: Be willing to start sorting through a mess. CANCER (June 21-July 22)  Know when to pull back and do something totally new. The time to start a project isn’t now. Take in information, do research and ask yourself just how involved you want to be. Your honesty now can make or break this matter. Tonight: Vanish while you can. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)  Circle the wagons around a key goal or long-term desire.

You are more in touch with your goals than you have been in a long time. A partner could misinterpret your words and actions. Try to be as clear as possible. Tonight: Where the action is. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)  Take a stand and be willing to lead others. Far more people respect you and your decisions than you thought. Try to clarify rather than stay on the same course. You need for others to understand your ideas. Tonight: Till the wee hours. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)  Keep reaching out for more information. At some point, you might feel that all the facts are creating more confusion. Actually, there is a discrepancy in the story, which is why there is an element of chaos. Tonight: Detach; take a deep breath. Think and look carefully at information. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)  Dialogue closely with partners or key associates.

Death and taxes are the only sure things, at least that’s the saying. The Roswell Invaders have added something to dynamic duo — the big inning(s). It is almost guaranteed that at some point during a game that Roswell will have at least one big inning and Saturday night was no exception. Roswell scored four runs in the fourth and three in the third en route to a 11-6 victory over Carlsbad in the finale of a four-game series. With the score tied at one entering the bottom of the fourth, the Invaders took the lead on a two-run triple by Clifton Thomas. Thomas later scored on a wild pitch and Matt Palko gave Roswell a four-run advantage with an RBI single. Carlsbad took the lead with a five-run fifth, but Roswell quickly reclaimed the lead for good with three runs in the fifth. Eric Williams Jr. led Roswell with three RBIs, while Joey Friedman collected three hits for the Invaders. James Mays and Greg Perret led Carlsbad with two RBIs each.

Pitching leads Noon Op to 7-2 win Roswell Daily Record


Pitching and getting off to a quick start are two vitally important facets of baseball and, in Little League Baseball, they are even more critically important to the success of a team. On Saturday, in the first round of the New Mexico 910 State Tournament, the Noon Optimist Little League All-Stars did both exceptionally well and parlayed that into a victory. Noon Op, the District II champions, got solid pitching performances from four different pitchers and raced out to a 7-0 lead en route to a 7-2 win over District V champion Roadrunner Little League out of Albuquerque. “It’s huge,” said Noon Op manager Chris Price about getting off to a 2-0 lead after the first inning. “Especially against (Roadrunner). They are very strong and a very good team. We knew we had to score early. “We had Drew Price starting for us, so we knew we had a good chance of shutting them down for a couple of innings depending on where his pitch count

went.” D. Price, the manager’s son, no-hit Roadrunner over his two innings on the mound before being pulled after facing one batter in the third. Jaydon Stephens came on in relief of D. Price and, after allowing a walk to the first batter he faced, struck out three straight batters to take Noon Op into the fourth with a 5-0 lead. Stephens ran his consecutive strikeouts to five in the bottom of the fourth and then induced a popup to finish off the inning. “He did a fantastic job,” C. Price said of Stephens’ performance on the mound. “That might be the best I’ve seen him pitch all year. “He came on in relief of Drew, and when he came in, he walked the first guy and I was kind of like, ‘ah, c’mon, we’ve got to hold on to this a little bit.’ He sucked it up, filled the strike zone up and did a fabulous job.” Justin Dollar came on in the fifth and allowed Roadrunner its first hit of the game, but didn’t allow a run over 1 1/3 innings. Tarren Burrola gave up Roadrunner’s only two runs after coming on in relief of

Dollar, but still got the final two outs to preserve the win. Noon Op got two of its runs in the first inning — the first on a Roadrunner throwing error and the second on a Kaden Dunlap

single to shallow center. Noon Op added three more in the second, including two on a Stephens twoRBI single to right-center, and then got one in both the fourth and the seventh innings.

Noon Op earned a spot in the championship semifinals with the victory, where they will face Silver City Little League at 7:30 p.m. tonight at Noon Optimist Park.

Noon Op 11-12 triumphs in extra innings LAWRENCE FOSTER RECORD SPORTS REPORTER

CLOVIS — Fourth of July was a few weeks ago, but fireworks were on full display during the Noon Optimist Little League AllStars’ first-round game against Enchantment Little League (Los Lunas) at the New Mexico 11-12 State Tournament. Luckily for Noon Op, the grand finale belonged to them as they rallied for a 15-14 seven-inning win over Enchantment. Noon Op, the District II champions, found themselves down 12-4 entering the bottom of the fifth and that’s when coach Tate Salas and his staff delivered a simple message to their team. “You know when we went down by eight runs, we told the kids, ‘There is no written rule that in Little League Baseball or any sport, that when you are down by eight runs, you can’t come back and win,” Salas said. “I came back and told them, ‘Let’s just go out there and hit the ball like I know we can.’” Noon Op did just that.

Cameron Stevenson started the rally with an infield hit and advanced to second on a throwing error by Enchantment’s Blaine Garley. Stevenson scored on an RBI single by Garrison

Kyser that cut the lead to 12-5. After Gavin Maldney drew a walk, Cedric Maurer drove in Kyser with a double to the wall in center. Jake Guerrero followed that up with a two-run

double to cut the Enchantment lead to four. A throwing error and wild pitch plated Guerrero, making the score 12-9. Two more base knocks by Gavin Garcia and Brian Bradshaw, and a hit-by-

pitch to Luke Fink, loaded the bases with one out. Cameron Stevenson drove in a run with a single to cut the lead to two and, after a fielder’s choice to home, Garcia scored on a wild pitch. On the very next pitch, Maldney blasted a three-run homer, giving Noon Op a 14-12 lead heading into the top of the sixth. “The kids’ perseverance was just awesome,” Salas said about his team’s rally. “They just came back and battled.” Enchantment was able to tie the game in the top of the sixth and Noon Op was unable to plate a run in the home half of the inning, forcing extra innings. Noon Op pitcher Roman Garcia led off the top of the seventh with a strikeout and things got very interesting after that. Two consecutive singles put runners at first and second, with Enchantment’s Devante Lambert coming to the plate. During Lambert’s at-bat, it appeared that he was hit on the hand, but he was hit

RUIDOSO DOWNS — Favored Cold Cash 123 made his expected late charge to give Hall of Fame trainer Dwayne “Sleepy” Gilbreath a record-extending seventh Grade 1 Rainbow Derby victory on Saturday afternoon at Ruidoso Downs. The $899,524 purse broke the previous Rainbow Derbyrecord purse of $873,441 set last year. Cold Cash 123 earned $449,762, a record winner’s share for the Rainbow Derby. The Rainbow Derby is the year’s third richest race for 3-year-old or older quarter horses. Bodacious Dash finished a neck behind Cold Cash 123 for second place and a nose ahead of third-place finisher DM Streakn Thru Fire. “I needed this one bad,” said Gilbreath. “It’s been awhile since I’ve won one.” Gilbreath, a member of the Ruidoso Downs Racehorse Hall of Fame, previously won the Rainbow Derby in 2001 with Feature Mr Jess. That victory concluded a run of three straight wins in the Rainbow Derby. He won his first Rainbow Derby in 1992 with Ed Grimley.

Duffer’s Corner: Talking with Billy Carlyle KEVIN J. KELLER RECORD SPORTS EDITOR

In this week’s “Duffer’s Corner,” I sit down with Spring River Golf Course member and Goddard High School boys golf coach Billy Carlyle to talk about the game that he says he still hasn’t mastered after 50-plus years of playing.

How did you get into the game? My dad played. He wasn’t a competitive golfer, but he played casually. I had two brothers and we just all played golf.

What specifically about golf is different than any other sport? To me, golf comes the closest to reflecting life, in a way. The struggles you have and the struggle to overcome. There’s an awful lot of ups and downs and you’ve got to learn to take those things as they come. The idea of pressing forward and trying to forget what is in the past is critical to that. Golf is a game I don’t think you ever really master. It didn’t take me long, because I was a pretty good athlete, to get fairly accomplished at tennis. I think you reach levels of tennis and some of the other sports and it doesn’t take as long to get there. Golf-wise, I’ve been playing for 50-plus years and I’m still a student. I don’t think I’ve come even close to arriving and I think that’s the way it will be when I stop playing altogether. You just never get there. It’s the challenge of it being a sport that not everyone can do. It’s not just a “pick it up and do it” sport, it’s a lifelong sport and it just takes a lifetime to even get close to being good at it, and then you’ve still got a long ways to go. What keeps you coming back to the golf course? That’s a good question. I have to ask myself that on occassion. I think there’s just something about golf. I like to compete. I played basketball, but I got to where, physically, my knees wouldn’t let me do that and

played tennis and got on the competitive level with that, but my knees won’t let me do that anymore either. Golf is probably much more of a lifetime sport and it’s one of those avenues that allows you to go out and butt heads with other guys. How important is putting? You really can’t divorce any part of the game from another, but I would say it’s singly, the most important part of the game. Even the little 3-foot putts are worth the same amount as any long shot that you hit. Even par on putting is 36, so half the game and half your score is going to be putting, most typically. If you’re trying to teach somebody or advise somebody, putting — and chipping, the short game — is where you’ll see the most dramatic improvement. That’s half of the game right there.

What is your favorite hole in Roswell? Probably now, No. 15 at Spring River Golf Course. It’s a short enough par-5 that I can still get there in two. I think it’s their signature hole there at Spring River with the water, waterfall and that kind of stuff around it. I think it’s well-made and well-planned out. It’s just fun to play.

What is the best tip you’ve ever received? What I try to carry with me today, even though I’m not always that successful with it, is to forget what is behind you, go forward and think about staying in the present. To think about what you’re doing at the moment

a thunderstorm earlier in the afternoon. Baldillez won the 2000 Rainbow Derby aboard the Gilbreath-trained Significant Speed. “He broke super and the inside horses (Bodacious Dash and DM Streakn Thru Fire) were out there (in front), but they did not run away from him,” said Baldillez. “He was getting ahold of the track and he loves 440 yards.”

and not thinking about what just happened. I’ve read so many books and talk to so many people, it’s something that’s been repeated over and over again by a number of different people. Probably the most recent (person to tell me that) was (former Spring River professional) Ron Doan when he was here.

What is your most memorable shot in golf? Most people think about holein-ones, so I had a hole-in-one when I was in high school and I still remember that, and that’s been a long, long time ago. There’s been a bunch of others, but that’s one that goes in the record books. It was here at Spring River, when I was in high school, and it was just a nine-hole course. I think, at that time, it was No. 4. It was just a little short par-3 and I’m sure I hit a wedge.

What is your most memorable moment in golf? Probably the first time I won the city championship and I don’t even remember what year that was. That’s been awhile back, but I probably look at that as one of the better accomplishments. Probably because of the number of people who have been city champs in the past and the quality of players. At that time, it was really highly competitive and it was played on the different golf courses. I just think it was probably a mark of accomplishment, probably more so than any other little tournament you play in. I’ve won a number of tournaments, but that’s probably the one that others look at as a mark.

Owned by Walter and Carolyn Bay’s T Bill Stable, Cold Cash 123 is now undefeated at five starts over 440 yards and is the only horse in recent memory to have three of those quarter-mile wins come as a 2year-old. During his 2-year-old season in 2010, he won the Grade 1 Southwest Juvenile Championship, the All American Juvenile and his All American Futurity trial at the distance. In his 440-yard Rainbow Derby trial, he approached the track record when he won with the fastest-qualifying mark of 20.762. The track record of 20.073 was set in the 2006 Rainbow Derby by Strawkins.

while swinging. The ball rolled into fair territory and Lambert, thinking he had a free pass to first, went off the base path to his coach to get his hand checked. Maurer, Noon Op’s catcher, picked the ball up and tagged Lambert. After the tag, Maurer noticed that Enchantment’s Rico Montoya was standing between second and third, trying to figure out what was going on, so he rifled a throw to Luke Fink, who tagged Montoya. Initially, the umpires were going to award everyone their base, but after a lengthy discussion, they ruled that Lambert had indeed swung and the ball was live, ending the top half of the seventh. Salas said he wasn’t surprised by his team’s headsup play. “That is one thing about our kids, they have got a lot of baseball smarts,” he said. “They know that if it is a live ball and no one calls it dead, to make a play and that’s what they did. They threw it around and tagged out the kids.” With momentum on their side, Fink smacked a leadoff ground-rule double and scored two batters later on a chopper up the middle by Kyser, which is exactly what Salas thought they needed. “I was just thinking that Fink is a great runner,” he said. “After he led off with a

double, I knew all we had to do was get a little chopper because he is going to score from second. He is that fast and that smart. Hats off to both (Kyser and Fink.)” In addition to scoring the winning run, Fink had a two-run homer in the bot-

tom of the first. With the win, Noon Op advanced on the winner’s side of the bracket and will play Zia Little League at 7 p.m. today. Garley led Enchantment with two homers and seven RBIs.

Consistency is a winning aspect. People who play golf understand with certainty that golf is a microcosm of life. The people who are successful in life are on time to class, on time to work, show up every day and pay their bills on time. A person doesn’t become a doctor, lawyer or successful banker by hoping that it happens. They make it happen with a consistent assertive effort. Another example is working out. Doing it a couple of times a year produces no result. This also takes a consistent assertive effort to achieve success. For those of you still paying attention, the parallel is that being successful in life takes consistency. Being successful in golf takes the same. We can’t hope that things happen or go our way, we have to make them happen and make them go our way. One thing that will help our

“I was a little bit concerned about the off track, but I liked the post position and he broke well. We’ll go the All American Derby next,” said Gilbreath, winner of two All American derbies. The trials to the Grade 1, $1.35-million All American Derby, quarter horse racing’s richest race for older horses, are Aug. 19. Johnny Trotter’s Bodacious Dash, the 41 third choice, put in game effort under jockey Ricky Ramirez for second. He won the Grade 1, $1-million Texas Classic Futurity at Lone Star Park to conclude his 2-year-old season and he won his Rainbow Derby trial over DM Streakn Thru Fire.

consistency in golf is to have a consistent pre-shot routine. This means doing the same thing each and every time prior to making a stroke at the ball. Your routine serves more than one purpose. The first is to take the outside circumstances out of the equation, meaning that it doesn’t matter if it is for fun or 100 bucks; when you are in your routine, that is all that exists and all that matters. It aids substantially in the alleviation of pressure. Second, your routine creates a consistency in action that will most definitely generate a greater consistency in your result. This is what we all desire. If in fact we want a consistent result then we as people, and players, need to be consistent. In the words of the great Jack Nicklaus, “It takes hundreds of good golf shots to gain confidence, but only one bad one to lose it.”

The second-place check of $143,924 pushed his career earnings to $683,020 from 12 starts. “He ran a good race. We’re really proud of him,” trainer Blane Wood said. Third-place finisher DM Streakn Thru Fire, a 13-1 long shot from the Mike Joiner barn, was a close third behind Bodacious Dash in the Texas Classic Futurity and the fifth-place finisher in the Grade 1, $2-million All American Futurity. The remaining order of finish was JLS Mr Bigtime, Royally Sandra, First Down Master, Llano Teller, Dominyun, Jess Before Dawn and Giorgino.

Players’ committee to meet Monday

NEW YORK (AP) — Though a vote to end the four-month lockout isn’t a certainty, the players association’s executive committee will meet in Washington on Monday. A person with knowledge of the NFLPA’s plans told The Associated Press on Saturday that a vote could happen, “it just depends on what guys feel about what happened this weekend ... but (they) are not committing that the executive committee is going to vote on anything.” The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the association has not revealed its plans. Owners approved a tentative agreement to end the four-month lockout on Thursday. But the players said they need more information before they can vote. On Saturday, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and players association head DeMaurice Smith spoke on the phone, and lawyers from both sides worked to clarify language. That work is not completed, the person said. He said Monday’s meeting will be “to understand where things stand after this weekend’s conversations. No talk of not voting, no talk of vote.” Clubs were scheduled to open their facilities to players Saturday, according to the schedule set by the owners when they voted 31-0 to approve a deal. That was contingent on the NFLPA’s executive committee ratifying the agreement. Obviously, neither of those occurred Saturday, and the league won’t begin conducting business for a few more days. The 32 team reps must recommend to the full corps of about 1,900 players to accept the settlement. The 10 named plaintiffs in the players’ lawsuit against the league — including Tom Brady, Peyton Manning and Drew Brees — must officially inform the court in Minneapolis of their approval. A majority vote of the players ratifying the agreement, then another returning the NFLPA to union status, must follow. When talks broke down in March and the

old collective bargaining agreement expired, the players dissolved the union, turning the NFLPA into a trade association. That’s what allowed the players to sue the owners in federal court under antitrust law. Only after the NFLPA is again a union can it negotiate certain parts of a new CBA. Among those items of most concern to players: —the league’s personal conduct policy; —drug testing; —benefits, such as pension funds, the disability plan, and the “88 Plan,” which provides money for care of former players with dementia or Alzheimer’s disease. The major economic framework for a 10year deal was worked out a week ago. That included how the more than $9 billion in annual league revenues will be divided (about 53 percent to owners and 47 percent to players over the next decade; the old CBA resulted in nearly a 50-50 split); a per-club cap of about $120 million for salary and bonuses in 2011 — and at least that in 2012 and 2013 — plus about $22 million in benefits; a salary system to rein in spending on first-round draft picks; and unrestricted free agency for most players after four seasons. One item in the document ratified by owners caught Smith and the players by surprise. A supplemental revenue-sharing plan for clubs hadn’t been discussed during negotiations between the league and players, Smith said. Goodell and the owners expressed hope their vote would lead to a speedy resolution to the NFL’s first work stoppage since 1987. They called it an equitable deal that improves player safety and allows the sport to prosper even more. But the players said they needed more time to examine the documents. Further delays could be costly. Already, one preseason game has been lost: The league called off the Hall of Fame exhibition opener, scheduled for Aug. 7 between the Chicago Bears and St. Louis Rams.

Douglas’ 3-pointer leads East to WNBA All-Star win

SAN ANTONIO (AP) — There were the record number of first-time WNBA All-Stars, and a halftime ceremony honoring the best players in WNBA history. Indiana Fever guard Katie Douglas didn’t fit into either category. So she made her mark another way. The four-time All-Star capped one of the closest WNBA midseason showcases ever by hitting the go-ahead 3-pointer with 56.7 seconds left, and the Eastern Conference hung on for just its third All-Star game victory over the West, 118-113 on Saturday. “We got together during practice and the first thing we said was that we wanted to win,” said New York Liberty guard Cappie Pondexter, who led the East with 17 points. “Alongside of having fun we wanted to be victorious today and we accomplished that. Good job.” At halftime, Pondexter was also named one of the WNBA’s Top 15 players of alltime, in celebration of this league’s 15th season. Douglas finished with 15 points and helped the East win just its third All-Star game in 10 tries — but also third in the last four. Connecticut Sun center Tina Charles scored 15, and headlined a record group of 10 players who made their All-Star debuts in this year’s game. Swin Cash led the West with 21 points and 12 rebounds and was named MVP for the second time. Former WNBA star Lisa Leslie is the only other player with multiple All-Star MVP awards. Cash, the Seattle Storm’s four-time AllStar, was also named MVP in 2009. She is also the league’s first All-Star MVP from the losing team. “I think so many players played well. It could’ve been anyone,” Cash said. The four-time All-Star singled out Rebekkah Brunson, who had 20 points and nine rebounds for the West. Brunson started in place of Los Angeles Sparks center Candace Parker, who is out due to a knee injury and still has yet to play in an All-Star game despite ranking among the WNBA’s elite players since her 2008 rookie year. Parker’s next chance may not come until 2013. Next summer is the Olympics, and the league may cancel the game — as it did in 2008 — while its biggest names play for the U.S. national team. “We’re thrilled that it’s an Olympic year, and we’ll obviously build our schedule to accommodate that,” WNBA president Laurel Richie said before the game. Neither side led by more than five points. The West’s last chance came down to San Antonio’s Becky Hammon scrambling to shoot a 3-pointer, but she instead found herself without an open shot and nowhere to pass. Her desperate bid to escape a trap ended with her whistled for traveling with 3.5 seconds left. “I think about midway through the fourth quarter both teams decided they wanted to win,” Hammon said. “We just came up a little bit short today.” It was a disappointing end in an otherwise humbling day for Hammon, who was among the 15 current and former WNBA players named as the league’s best ever. All-Stars Sue Bird, Tamika Catchings and Diana Taurasi also made the list. “I was young when the WNBA started, at the end of my high school career,” Bird said. “I watched them on TV and watched them in the Olympics. To be in the same group as those players is such an honor.” Tulsa’s Liz Cambage, a late All-Star addition in place of Parker, scored 13 points for the West. Taurasi also had 13 points and Phoenix’s Penny Taylor added 11. New York’s Essence Carson scored 13 points off the bench for the East and Connecticut’s Renee Montgomery added 12. Catchings, playing in her seventh AllStar game, finished with 11 points. Douglas’ 3 summed up how the East won the game. The East shot 47 percent from behind the arc while hitting 16 3s, more than twice as many as the West. Douglas, Carson and Montgomery each hit three 3s. It was the East’s first victory since 2007, when it won 103-99.


Khan stops Judah to add title

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Amir Khan got another big win, even if he would have liked to do it in a bit more spectacular fashion. Khan stopped Zab Judah in the fifth round of their scheduled 12-round unification fight Saturday night, winning another piece of the 140-pound title and cementing his claim to being one of the top fighters in the division. He did it with a body shot that landed legally, though Judah claimed it was a low blow. No matter, said Khan, who was landing big blows even before the punch that put Judah down. “If it had gone another few rounds, I would have knocked him out with a clean shot,” Khan said. Khan was dominating the fight when he threw a right hand that landed just at the belt line of Judah, who went to the canvas. Judah stayed there on his knees as referee Vic Drakulich counted him out at 2:47 of the fifth round. Judah acted as though he was surprised to be counted out, but got up and went to his corner as Khan celebrated with his cornermen. Judah had earlier complained about being butted by Khan and was bleeding from his nose and cuts to his face. “It was a low blow. I was trying to get myself together,” Judah said. “That was selfdefense right there.” The win was an impressive one for Khan, the former Olympic silver medalist who likes to call himself the best pound-forpound boxer in England. He came in as a 51 favorite, and had no trouble against the southpaw Judah, using his quickness to beat him to the punch in almost every exchange. Khan won the first four rounds on all three ringside scorecards. “I think my speed overwhelmed him, along with my power,” Khan said. “I thought I was hurting him and it was only a matter of time.” The end came when Khan landed a right hand that appeared to be legal, but just barely. Judah went down and stayed there with his back to Drakulich as the referee counted him out.


Khan, who improved to 26-1 with 18 knockouts, was fighting in the same ring where he engaged in a brutal slugfest last December with Marcos Maidana, a bout that was voted fight of the year by boxing writers. Khan won that fight narrowly, but was lackluster in his last title defense in April against Paul McCloskey in his hometown of Manchester. “We trained hard and I was in the best condition of my life,” Khan said. “Zab is a great fighter, but he was a little awkward. I knew he was getting hurt but he kept moving away and ducking.” Khan’s promoter said the British fighter would fight again Dec. 10 at 140 pounds before moving up to 147 pounds with a fight next spring that will likely be held in his hometown of Manchester. “Then we’ll go and get one of the big boys at 147”‘ said Richard Schaefer, referring to either Manny Pacquiao or Floyd Mayweather Jr. Judah, who appeared to have trouble getting his punches off, said he thought the referee was giving him a standing 8-count to allow him to recover from a low blow and was confused when the fight was stopped. Judah (41-7) came into the ring with a piece of the 140-pound title, but looked every bit his age of 33 in a fight he was never really in. Judah fought defensively most of the way, and when he tried to trade with Khan usually came out on the losing end. Ringside punch stats reflected Khan’s dominance, showing the British fighter landing 61 of 284 punches to 20 of 115 for Judah. Khan, whose only loss came in a firstround knockout three years ago, was expected to have a tougher time against Judah, who has been fighting for 15 years. The southpaw, though, complained of a head butt in the first round and was hesitant to get in exchanges with a younger fighter who had better hand speed and more power.


Canton copes with loss of Hall of Fame game

CANTON, Ohio (AP) — Workers assembled the metal framework for outdoor tents in the parking lot of the Pro Football Hall of Fame on Friday, getting ready for its big enshrinement weekend — one that won’t include a game for the first time in 45 years. It’s much more than just a lost preseason game for the northern Ohio community with deep football roots. The labor dispute between NFL owners and players forced the league to call off the annual Hall of Fame game between Chicago and St. Louis scheduled for Aug. 7. Everything else will go as planned, including the enshrinement on Aug. 6. It’s a financial blow to the Hall of Fame, which could lose about $1.5 million out of its $20 million annual operating budget. And it’s a big loss for the community, which gets more than just a financial boost from the event. Pride also comes into play. “We’re such a football community,” said Joanne Murray, director of the Hall of Fame festival for the local Chamber of Commerce. “From the staff to the man on the street, I doubt you’d find a single person who would say they’re not disappointed. “We’re just going to have to get through this unusual year and embrace the other events.” A day after the game was cancelled, the city was feeling the sting. “We have more than 4,000 volunteers in the community that help with the events,” said Joe Horrigan, a vice president with the Pro Football Hall of Fame. “So there are people who have been working very hard with us on game preparation — that’s their event. They’re very disappointed. “But I think it’s more the feeling of losing a little bit of tradition. This is middle America here, and we like tradition. I think that’s part of it.” The Hall of Fame game started in 1962, a year before the building opened. There was no game in 1966, but it has been played every year since. Last year, nearly 20,000 tickets were sold for the enshrinement. The 22,000-seat stadium was packed for a game between Dallas and Cincinnati. An estimated 6 million people watched the enshrinement on television, and the game turned out to be one of the highest-rated shows of the week with 11.4 million viewers. The Hall of Fame gets ticket and merchandise sales from the game, plus increased visits to the museum. The Hall is in the midst of a $27 million renovation to be completed in 2013. It’s offering refunds for game tickets. Ticket sales for the weekend were down compared to other years — roughly 14,000 had been sold for the game and 8,000 for the enshrinement. The 2011 induction class includes Shannon Sharpe, Richard Dent, Marshall Faulk, Deion Sanders and Chris Hanburger. Horrigan attributes the reduced demand to the uncertainty over whether there would be a game. Fans can buy packages that include admission to the enshrinement, the game and other events. “Now that the uncertainty’s gone, we expect a spike,” he said. A survey five years ago by the Chamber of Commerce estimated a $31 million annual impact on the region from the events. “We’re going to have a notable financial impact,” Murray said. Located about an hour’s drive from Cleveland, the city has a rich football history. The Canton Bulldogs were formed early in the 1900s and were coached by Jim Thorpe. They won championships and intertwined the city’s reputation with football. The Hall of Fame game was the first casualty of the labor dispute. Horrigan said attendance at the Hall of Fame has been normal this summer, while players and owners jostled over a contract. “When the Browns left town for Baltimore (in the 1990s) and when there was some labor unrest in the ‘80s, we saw a direct correlation with our business,” he said. “We’ve been fairly consistent (this summer). If we’re down, we’re down more because the cost of gasoline spiked. I feel we have not seen a negative response from our visitors.” Unlike the locals, visitors to the Hall of

Fame on Friday didn’t seem to mind losing a preseason game. “Your good pros don’t even play anyway,” said Ed Nettleton, a 43-year-old truck driver from the Chicago area who was watching the NFL Network’s recap of negotiations. “Any of these preseason games are more limited to finding the players you want.”


Spieth earns 2nd US Junior Amateur Championship

BREMERTON, Wash. (AP) — Jordan Spieth of Dallas closed out his junior golf career in dominating fashion Saturday, winning the 64th annual U.S. Junior Amateur Championship in a 6-and-5 runaway at Gold Mountain Golf Club. After beating Chelso Barrett, 16, of Keene, N.H., Spieth enters the USGA record book as only the second player to win this title multiple times. Tiger Woods won it three times, from 1991 to 1993. “That’s really cool,” said Spieth, who also won this title in 2009. “Anytime you can be compared to any of Tiger’s golf accomplishments is very special.” Spieth, who turns 18 Wednesday and graduates out of the junior ranks, was beaten in the second round last year. “He won three in a row,” Spieth said of Woods. “I’m glad I got two of them. Now that I can’t play this one anymore I’m going to go after the Amateurs he won.” Spieth, who will attend Texas in the fall, is set to play in the Western Amateur in two weeks, and then at the U.S. Amateur next month, an event Woods also won three times in a row. Spieth rallied at the end of the first 18 holes to take a 3-up lead at the break of the 36-hole final on Saturday at the 7,133-yard Olympic Course at Gold Mountain. Spieth won the 15th hole with a birdie and then took the 17th hole when Barrett had a three-putt. Barrett’s birdie on the 19th hole closed the gap to 2 down, but then Spieth, consistently 20 to 30 yards longer off the tee, had birdies on three of the next seven holes to go 6 up and gain control.

Athletics nip Yankees, Rangers edge Blue Jays

NEW YORK (AP) — Another sweltering day at Yankee Stadium. Only this time, the Oakland Athletics finally sweated out a win against New York. Hideki Matsui homered against his former team, Rich Harden ear ned his second win of the season and Oakland snapped an 11-game losing streak to the Yankees with a 4-3 victory Saturday. “Obviously, you don’t want to let something like that linger on too long,” said A’s reliever Grant Balfour, who got four big outs. “Sounds like it had already gone far enough.” Andrew Bailey barely held on in the ninth inning, allowing a run before retiring Robinson Cano on an easy grounder with a runner on third to end it. Josh Willingham hit a two-run homer of f A.J. Burnett and Jemile Weeks had an RBI single for the A’s, who beat the Yankees for the first time since April 22, 2010, in Oakland. “I haven’t been around for a lot of it. But of course, when it gets to that point you have to answer a bit more,” Oakland interim manager Bob Melvin said. About 14 hours after New York polished off a 17-7 rout in 100-degree heat, Harden and four relievers held the Yankees in check on a 93-degree afternoon. Derek Jeter had three hits and a walk, and Nick Swisher chased Harden (21) with a solo homer deep into the second deck in right that cut Oakland’s lead to 3-2 in the sixth. With two on and two outs in the seventh, Balfour retired Cano on a long fly to center. New York put the first two batters on in the eighth, but Eduardo Nunez flied out after failing to get a bunt down and pinch-hitter Jorge Posada grounded into an inning-ending double play as Balfour pumped his fist. Before that, Posada was 4 for 4 with a homer and two walks in his career against Balfour. “I had to get the guy out sometime. It was a good time to do it,” Balfour said. Bailey, raised in New Jersey, had family and friends in the stands to watch him work the ninth for his 11th save in 13 chances. The first two batters reached safely and the Yankees pulled of f a double steal as Curtis Granderson struck out. Mark Teixeira hit a sacrifice fly before Cano grounded out. “We ran out of innings,” Swisher said. “A.J. and the guys did a good job of keeping us in it, we just could not score runs.” It was a rare loss under the sun for the Yankees, who began the afternoon a major league-best 28-5 in day games. They also dropped to 14-4 at home


since June 10. New York lost for only the second time in the last 17 meetings with Oakland and fell to 25-5 against the A’s since the start of the 2008 season. The Athletics have lost nine straight series to New York, an Oakland record against any team. But they can end that slide Sunday when All-Star lefty Gio Gonzalez faces Yankees veteran Bartolo Colon. Making his fourth start since missing the first three months of the season with a strained right shoulder, Harden threw 104 pitches in 5 1-3 innings. He allowed two runs and five hits while striking out six in the sapping heat. “It was pretty hot, but really that’s what we do. We’ve got to play in cold weather, hot weather, whatever it is, you’ve just got to get prepared for it and deal with it,” Harden said. “That’s really what I wanted to be aware of today is just trying to slow everything down and trying to give myself an opportunity to recover.” Burnett (8-8) threw 100 pitches and dropped to 0-2 in four starts since beating Milwaukee on June 29. He was yanked after walking the Nos. 8 and 9 batters to load the bases with two outs in the sixth and never looked at manager Joe Girardi on the mound. “I just thought he ran out of gas,” Girardi said. “I thought he threw the ball really well today.”

Rangers 5, Blue Jays 4 ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Small ball led to a big victory for the Texas Rangers. Three straight ninthinning bunts set up Michael Young’s winning single as the Rangers rallied for a 5-4 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays on Saturday night. “You just have to play baseball according to the way it presents itself,” Rangers manager Ron Washington said of the ninth-inning bunts. “We executed. Great execution in that inning. Great execution.” The Rangers trailed 4-3 when Mark Rzepczynski (23) walked pinch-hitter Mike Napoli leading of f the ninth. Rzepczynski threw wide of first for an error on Mitch Moreland’s first career sacrifice bunt. Closer Jon Rauch came in, and the runners moved to second and third on Ian Kinsler’s bunt. Napoli scored on Elvis Andrus’ suicide-squeeze bunt to tie it at 4, and after Josh Hamilton was intentionally walked, pinch-runner Craig Gentry crossed the plate on Young’s drive over the head of right fielder Corey Patterson. “We were on the top step.

The Oakland Athletics’ Josh Willingham hits a single during the ninth inning of their game against the New York Yankees, Saturday.

We expected it,” Kinsler said of Young’s seventh career game-winning hit. The AL West-leading Rangers thrive on the long ball, but they also work on bunting every day during batting practice. “We practice it a lot. It shows our versatility,” Moreland said. “We can swing our way out of it, or small ball, we can do that, too. It gives you confidence as a team to know that whatever situation you’re put into as a team, you’ll be able to prevail.” Patterson, a ninth-inning defensive replacement, said the ball wasn’t catchable. “It was just hit over my head, right above my head, went of f the wall, that’s what happened,” he said. “It is frustrating. We battled hard today. The last inning, it just didn’t go our way.” Darren Oliver (3-5) retired the final batter of the eighth for the victory as the Rangers won for the 14th time in 16 games. Toronto’s J.P. Arencibia homered for the third time in two games to spark a three-run sixth. Rangers starter Matt Harrison had retired 12 of the previous 13 batters and took a 3-1 lead into the sixth before Arencibia led off with his 15th homer of the season, following up on Friday night’s two-homer ef fort in a 12-2 loss to Texas. Yunel Escobar followed with a double and scored on Eric Thames’ triple to tie it at 3. Jose Bautista’s single drove in Thames to put the Jays in front.

Saturday night, sending the Mariners to their club record-tying 14th consecutive loss. Terry Francona earned his 1,000th win as a major league manager, the 57th to reach that milestone, and the eighth still active. Boston moved a seasonhigh three games ahead of the New York Yankees for the lead in the AL East. Meanwhile, the Mariners tied the 1992 team’s mark after loading the bases against Daniel Bard, but the reliever got out of the jam. Beckett (9-3) gave up seven hits, and the only run he allowed came on a homer by Mike Carp. Blake Beavan (1-2) took the loss. Royals 5, Rays 4, 10 innings KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Joakim Soria worked out of a bases-loaded, no-out jam in the 10th and Eric Hosmer doubled home the winning run in the bottom of the inning and the Royals rallied for a victory over the Rays. Brandon Gomes (0-1) threw two pitches in the 10th and took the loss. Billy Butler singled to right to lead off the inning. Mike Aviles ran for Butler and scored on Hosmer’s double to left-center. The Rays loaded the bases in the 10th with none out, but failed to score. Rookie Aaron Crow, the Royals’ representative at the All-Star game, began the inning by walking Evan Longoria and B.J. Upton. He was replaced by Soria, who gave up a single to Matt Joyce to load the bases. Soria (5-3) got Casey Kotchman on a comebacker, forcing out Longoria at home. He struck out pinch hitter Sam Fuld and Elliot Johnson looking to end the 10th.

Orioles 3, Angels 2 BAL TIMORE (AP) — Adam Jones homered and drove in two runs to back an effective pitching performance by Brad Bergesen and lead the Orioles over the Angels. Jones hit a solo shot in the fourth inning and put Baltimore ahead 3-2 in the fifth with a sacrifice fly. He has four homers and nine RBIs in his last eight games. J.J. Hardy had three singles as part of a 13-hit attack that enabled the Orioles to win for only the fifth time in 22 games. Baltimore got at least one hit in every inning except the eighth but was victimized by four double plays. Bergesen (2-6) allowed two runs, six hits and two walks in six innings to earn his first win since May 14. He’s 2-0 lifetime against the Angels and 15-23 against everyone else.

Twins 4, Tigers 1 MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Scott Baker pitched five scoreless innings and the Twins bullpen came through with four solid innings of relief in a victory over the Tigers, snapping Detroit’s 11-game winning streak over Minnesota. Baker (8-5) allowed three hits and struck out five in his first start since July 5. Anthony Swarzak, Phil Dumatrait and Glen Perkins bridged the gap to Joe Nathan, who picked up his seventh save. Danny Valencia homered and Delmon Young added a two-run double for the Twins, who had not beaten Detroit since Sept. 1 of last year. Brad Penny (7-7) gave up four runs and seven hits in seven innings for the T igers, who got two hits and an RBI from Miguel Cabrera but not

Cardinals 9, Pirates 1 PITTSBURGH (AP) — Lance Berkman and Yadier Molina homer ed during St. Louis’ five-run fifth inning, Jaime Garcia won his 10th game and the Car dinals beat the Pirates for the second consecutive night. A day after hitting three homers in a 15-hit barrage, St. Louis won its third straight by collecting 12 hits in assuring itself a win in what many in Pittsburgh were calling the biggest series in PNC Park’s 11-year history. Surprising Pittsburgh — without a winning season since 1992 but in first place for four of the seven days leading up to this series — lost its third consecutive game. The Pirates dropped into third place behind the Milwaukee Brewers and Cardinals in the National League Central. D-Backs 12, Rockies 3 PHOENIX (AP) — Justin Upton and Miguel Montero combined to drive in 11 runs and the Diamondbacks routed the Rockies. Josh Collmenter threw seven strong innings, had a pair of hits and added his first career RBI for the Diamondbacks, who have won two of their past three. Upton finished 3 for 5 with his second career grand slam and six RBIs while Montero had three hits and drove in five. Collmenter (6-5) allowed three runs on six hits with no walks and four strikeouts to record his second consecutive win.

Evans seizes yellow jersey, poised to win Tour Roswell Daily Record

GRENOBLE, France (AP) — Cadel Evans seized the Tour de France yellow jersey in the next-to-last stage Saturday, all but giving Australia its first victory in cycling’s showpiece event and capping one of the most dramatic races in years. The two-time runner-up took the overall lead by overcoming a 57-second deficit to Andy Schleck of Luxembourg in the time trial. A red-eyed Evans choked up on the victory podium, holding back tears before hurling the winner’s bouquet into the crowd. “I really can’t quite believe it right now,” the 34year -old Aussie said. “I have been concentrating on one event for so long.” Although there is one more stage — Sunday’s ceremonial finish along the Champs-Elysees in Paris — the leader after the time trial is almost certain to be the winner. Launching a successful attack during that flat ride is virtually impossible. This year’s edition of the 108-year-old race was tense all the way — a riveting finish and without a serious doping blight that marred past Tours. The Schleck brothers, knowing they had lost, embraced after the finish line of the 26-mile time trial. Evans leads Andy Schleck by 1:34, and Frank Schleck by 2:30. The 20th stage was won by Tony Martin of Germany. Evans finished second in the stage — seven

seconds behind — and was 2:31 faster than Andy Schleck. The riders set off in reverse order of the standings. Andy Schleck had the benefit of riding last, and said beforehand he’d have the added inspiration of wearing yellow. Riders described the course — mostly flat featuring two small hills — as quite technical, with a variety of tight turns. After morning rains doused the roads, sunshine dried them by the time the leading contenders left. By the first intermediate time check at the 9.3-mile mark, Evans had already erased 36 seconds of his deficit to Andy Schleck and was 34 seconds faster than the elder Schleck. At the second, at 17.1 miles, Andy Schleck’s lead had vanished — Evans was 1:32 faster. The Luxembourg rider wasn’t even among the 10 fastest riders who had crossed that point. Evans then kept gaining as the stage progressed to the finish. The looming victory for Evans, the BMC team leader, culminated a stellar and methodical three weeks of riding. Unlike defending champion Alberto Contador and other main contenders, Evans was spared crashes. His only real problem was mechanical trouble Friday, but he recovered without any lost time. Evans said he first saw the Tour as a 14-year-old, watching the successes of five-time champion Miguel

Calcavecchia, Rinker lead US charge at Senior Open WALTON ON THE HILL, England (AP) — Americans Mark Calcavecchia and Lee Rinker and Canadian Rod Spittle shared the second-round lead in the Senior British Open on Friday. Calcavecchia — one of three overnight leaders — made six birdies in his 3-under 69. He was joined at 7 under by Rinker and Spittle, who each shot 67 at Walton Heath. It’s the first time since 2004 that at least three players have held a share of the lead after 36 holes of a Senior British Open. Australian Peter Fowler was two shots back after a 68, with American pair John Cook (67) and Mike Goodes (70) tied at 4 under. Defending champion Bernhard Langer faded with a 76, nine shots off the pace. Fowler, a two-time winner on the European Seniors Tour this season, holed a pitch shot for birdie on No. 16. England’s Kevin Spurgeon had the low round with eight birdies for a 66. Bob Tway (70) and 2010 runner-up Corey Pavin (72) were tied at 3 under with England’s Barry Lane (70). Tom Watson had a bogey-free 68 to move into contention at 1 under, along with Mark O’Meara and Tom Lehman, who each had a 72. Americans filled six of the top nine places, improving the likelihood of an eighth U.S. winner in nine years. Australia’s Mike Harwood and Zimbabwean-born Mark McNulty shared the overnight lead with Calcavecchia, but finished at 74 and 76, respectively. Calcavecchia and Rinker live near each other in Jupiter, Fla., and grew up playing junior golf together. However, their careers have taken different paths. While the 50-year -old Rinker doesn’t have a career victory, Calcavecchia is best known for winning the British Open at Troon in 1989 and has 12 more wins on the PGA tour. Calcavecchia is bidding to become the fourth player — after Watson, Gary Player and Bob Charles — to achieve the British Open double. “That would be awesome company to keep. They’re three Hall of Famers. That would be really special,” Calcavecchia said. Rinker, in his first season on the Champions Tour, only sealed his spot at Walton Heath with a top-10 finish last month at Endicott, N.Y. He had five birdies in a blemish-free round. “It’s been a long time since I’ve been in this position,” said Rinker, whose best showings were two second places in 1997. “But my game’s been coming along this year. We’ll see how I hold up.” Spittle joined the American pair atop the leaderboard toward the end of the round, finishing with six birdies in the last 10 holes. Langer had a double bogey on the par-4 fourth, adding to three other dropped shots. However, the two-time Masters champion made the cut, which came at 4 over. American amateurs Paul Simson (2 over) and Randy Haag (3 over) also made the cut.

New overall leader Cadel Evans of Australia rides during the 20th stage of the Tour de France in Grenoble, Alps region, France, Saturday. Evans overtook Andy Schleck for the lead with just one stage remaining in the event. Indurain. The Aussie spoke movingly of former coach Aldo Sassi, who “often believed in me more than I did.” The Italian died in December. “For him today to see me now would be quite something,” Evans said. Evans won only one stage in this Tour, the flat fourth stage. But his triumph attests to his diligent preparation as he eyed a title he has narrowly missed for years. “Today, we went through the process, like we had the plan every day — and the plan every day was A, B, C, D,” he said. “The key

aspect to our Tour is consistency.” BMC also averted the many crashes that wreaked havoc on many teams, especially during the first week. “We were criticized a lot in the first 10 days for not going forward enough,” said John Lelangue, BMC’s sporting director. “But that’s the strategy, to consider every stage of the Tour de France like it was the last.” Evans’ psychological toughness had been questioned, but he showed a veteran’s skill and savvy to take cycling’s greatest prize.

“This is the victory of a complete rider,” Tour director Christian Prudhomme said. “Is the consecration of a career.” Evans had been regarded as a perennial underachiever until he became a world champion two years ago. And he enjoyed a solid build-up to the Tour, racing less than usual so he would peak at the right moment. This wasn’t Evans’ first come-from-behind attempt. In another next-to-last stage time trial in 2008, he trailed Carlos Sastre of Spain by 1:34. Evans erased 29 seconds and finished second overall. The

previous year, he was only 23 seconds behind Contador in second place. Those were dopingmarred races. Leader Michael Rasmussen of Denmark was kicked out of the 2007 Tour for lying about his training whereabouts when he missed prerace doping tests. The next year, third-place finisher Bernard Kohl of Germany was among several riders exposed as cheats. The International Cycling Union has since made it a top priority to root out doping, with hundreds of tests conducted at the race this year.

Pearl Dean

Funeral services for Pearl Dean, 97, of Roswell, will be held Monday, July 25, 2011, at 10 a.m., at Anderson Bethany Funeral Home with the Rev. Eddy Lee, Pearl’s nephew, of Harvest Christian Center, El Paso, Texas, and the Rev. Gorton Smith, of the First United Methodist Church, officiating. Burial will follow in South Park Cemetery. Pearl passed away peacefully surrounded by her family Thursday, July 21, 2011. Pearl was bor n Pearl Blanscet, in Marlow, Okla., June 12, 1914, the fourth of nine children to William Daniel and LeNora Blanscet. The family moved to Raymondville, Texas, in 1929 where she met and married William Dean, on July 9, 1930. Willie and Pearl headed for California as many people from Texas and Oklahoma did during the Depression era. They got as far as Roswell and liked it so well they decided to stay, and founded Dean Motor Co. They remained in the car business in Roswell for 57 years, retiring in 1977. Pearl was a real pioneer of the Roswell area. She was a loving wife, mother, sister, grandmother, and friend. Pearl loved to garden, was a lifetime volunteer with the ENMMC Hospital Auxiliary and a longtime breast cancer survivor. Pearl loved people and truly enjoyed visiting with others. She always had a smile on her face and was loved by all, especially children. She will be deeply missed by her family and friends. Those left behind to cherish her memory are her children, Lucille Wolf, Mildred Brown, Daniel Dean and wife Levena, LeNora

Born with a veil over her face when she entered this world one cold January day, Corine Wagoner (nee Davis) could not conceive what life would bring beyond the veil. Indeed, it consisted of early poverty, hard work, little for mal education, hard work, unhappy marriage, heartaches, eight children, hard work, financial struggle, traveling, a keen interest in life and an abiding trust in the LORD God through Jesus Christ along the journey. Life began for Corine in Harrah, Okla., on Jan. 20, 1926, with parents John McHenry Sr. and Minnie Lee Davis. While John sometimes worked manual labor jobs, other times he traveled the Oklahoma outbacks as an evangelist. Minnie Lee cared for their growing brood as best she could with the help of her two oldest daughters, Vermelia and Corine. When the family moved to Oklahoma City, they became active members of the Church of God in Christ denomination. That involvement continued when Corine’s father moved the family to Roswell in the 1940s. Corine briefly attended Carver Elementary School, the school for black children, then began working different jobs to assist the family. Sometimes that meant picking cotton alongside her family. Or it meant working in various Roswell homes as a domestic housekeeper. She desired being a nurse. At 19 years old, she married Frank L. Wagoner Sr. on Dec. 24, 1945. After several years of troubled married life, the two permanently separated. He left New Mexico while Corine stayed in Roswell to raise their children. During those years, Corine instilled in them how to pray to the Lord, service to the Lord, reading the Word, love of reading and learning, the value of work, and how to


keep a clean home. She lear ned how to mix the blocks of cheese, dry milk, dried eggs and other commodities she received from public assistance to make delicious meals. At one point, she trained as a caterer, and would bring home samples of exotic dishes. She enjoyed growing gardens, and in the place she called “the ghetto,” she raised a small area abounding with tall stalks of cor n, collard greens, watermelons, cucumbers and other vegetables. At another home, chrysanthemums, roses and other flowers blossomed in their glory. For much of her childhood years and early adult life, she walked to her destinations. With her children in tow, she would trek to the store, to church, the library, the laundry, downtown, to Main Street for the Eastern New Mexico State Fair parade, and later to the fairgrounds for the fair. In her later years, she relished walking in Cahoon Park, or in her neighborhood. The J.O.Y. Center was a place she learned to enjoy. She also delighted in traveling to visit kinfolks in Oklahoma City, or later to travel with her children to Hawaii, Florida, Austin, South Carolina, and other places. During her ventures, Corine steadfastly kept praising God. She tried to praise Him in her life¸ while at times making some bad choices (as we all do). She praised in singing and in words. She opened her mouth and sounded a strong voice. She was also known for her radiant smile. Corine was a faithful member of St. Paul C.O.G.I.C., and also Washington attended Chapel Worship Center. She will be sorely missed as she has overcome the veil. Corine departed on July 19, 2011. Preceding her in death were her parents; brothers, Elijah¸ Isaiah, Samuel, Solomon, Paul, and John McHenry Davis Jr.; and two sisters, Pearl and Vermelia Black. She is survived by her husband Frank, who was recently reunited with the family. She also leaves her eight children: Darlene Berry, Austin; Frank Wagoner Jr. (Laurie), Phoenix; James Wagoner, Compton, Calif.; Betty Hollins, Houston; Freddie Wagoner, Irving, Texas; Nancy Wagoner; Steve Wagoner (Ear nestine); and Alice Wagoner, all of Roswell. Surviving sisters include Alberta Applewhite, Albuquerque; Joyce Louise Terrell, Manor, Texas; Doris D. Walker, St. Petersburg, Fla.; Rosea Lee Stevenson (Stephen), San Antonio, Texas; and Ann Margaret Helton, Roswell. Surviving brothers include: William L. Davis (Eunice), Aurora, Colo.; and Sampson Leroy Davis, Roswell. Grandchildren include Cathy, Robert, Corine, Carla, James, Michael, Paul, Matthew, T if fany, Melissa, Sule, A yana, Kemba, Joshua and special granddaughter, Sayku and her son Josiah. Corine also leaves 26 great-grandchildren, two great-greatgrandchildren, and a host of nieces and nephews, relatives and friends. Services are scheduled Tuesday, July 26, 2011, at

Troubled diva Amy Winehouse dead at 27 Roswell Daily Record

LONDON (AP) — Few artists summed up their own career in a single song — a single line — as well as Amy Winehouse. “They tried to make me go to rehab,” she sang on her world-conquering 2006 single, “Rehab.” ‘’I said ‘No, no no.’” Occasionally, she said yes, but to no avail: repeated stints in hospitals and clinics couldn’t stop alcohol and drugs scuttling the career of a singer whose distinctive voice, rich mix of influences and heart-on-her sleeve sensibility seemed to promise great things. In her short lifetime, Winehouse too often made headlines because of drug and alcohol abuse, eating disorders, destructive relationships and abortive performances. But it’s her small but powerful body of recorded music that will be her legacy. The singer was found dead Saturday at age 27 by ambulance crews called to her home in north London’s Camden area, a youth-culture mecca known for its music scene, its pubs — and the availability of illegal drugs. The London Ambulance Service said Winehouse had died before crews arrived at the house in leafy Camden Square. The cause of death was not immediately known. The singer’s body was taken from her home by private ambulance to a London mortuary where postmortem examinations were to be carried out either Sunday or Monday. Police said in a statement no arrests have been made in connection with her death. It was not a complete surprise, but the news was still a huge shock for millions around the world. The size of Winehouse’s appeal was reflected in the extraordinary range of people paying tribute as they heard the news, from Demi Moore — who tweeted “T ruly sad news ... May her troubled soul find peace” — to chef Jamie Oliver, who wrote “such a waste, raw talent” on the social networking site. Tony Bennett, who recorded the pop standard “Body And Soul” with Winehouse at London’s Abbey Road Studios in March for an upcoming duets album, called her “an artist of immense proportions.” “She was an extraordinary musician with a rare intuition as a vocalist and I am truly devastated that her exceptional talent has come to such an early end,” he said. Rolling Stone Ronnie Wood said he was dedicating Saturday’s reunion per-

Winehouse was something rare in an increasingly homogenized music business — an outsized personality and an unclassifiable talent. She shot to fame with the album “Back to Black,” whose blend of jazz, soul, rock and classic pop was a global hit. It won five Grammys and made Winehouse — with her black beehive hairdo and old-fashioned sailor tattoos — one of music’s most recognizable stars. “I didn’t go out looking to be famous,” Winehouse told the Associated Press when the album was released. “I’m just a musician.” But in the end, the music was overshadowed by fame, and by Winehouse’s demons. Tabloids lapped up the erratic stage appearances, drunken fights, stints in hospital and rehab clinics. Performances became shambling, stumbling train wrecks, watched around the world on the Internet. Last month, Winehouse canceled her European comeback tour after she swayed and slurred her way through barely recognizable songs in her first show in the Serbian capital of Belgrade. Booed and jeered off stage, she flew home and her management said she would take time off to recover. Fans who had kept the faith waited in vain for a fol-

lowup to “Back to Black.” Born in 1983 to taxi driver Mitch Winehouse and his pharmacist wife Janis, Winehouse grew up in the north London suburbs, and was set on a showbiz career from an early age. When she was 10, she and a friend formed a rap group, Sweet ‘n’ Sour — Winehouse was Sour — that she later described as “the little white Jewish Salt ‘n’ Pepa.” She attended the Sylvia Young Theatre School, a factory for British music and acting moppets, later went to the Brit School, a performing arts academy in the “Fame” mold, and was originally signed to “Pop Idol” svengali Simon Fuller’s 19 Management. But Winehouse was never a packaged teen star, and always resisted being pigeonholed. Her jazz-influenced 2003 debut album, “Frank,” was critically praised and sold well in Britain. It earned Winehouse an Ivor Novello songwriting award, two Brit nominations and a spot on the shortlist for the Mercury Music Prize. But Winehouse soon expressed dissatisfaction with the disc, saying she was “only 80 percent behind” the album. “Frank” was followed by a slump during which Winehouse broke up with her boyfriend, suffered a long period of writer’s block and, she later said, smoked a lot of marijuana. “I had writer’s block for so long,” she said in 2007. “And as a writer, your selfworth is literally based on

the last thing you wrote. ... I used to think, ‘What happened to me?’ “At one point it had been two years since the last record and (the record company) actually said to me, ‘Do you even want to make another record?’ I was like, ‘I swear it’s coming.’ I said to them, ‘Once I start writing I will write and write and write. But I just have to start it.’” The album she eventually produced was a sensation. Released in Britain in the fall of 2006, “Back to Black” brought Winehouse global fame. Working with producers Mark Ronson and Salaam Remi and soul-funk group the Dap-Kings, Winehouse fused soul, jazz, doowop and, above all, a love of the girl-groups of the early 1960s with lyrical tales of romantic obsession and emotional excess.

“Back to Black” was released in the United States in March 2007 and went on to win five Grammy awards, including song and record of the year for “Rehab.” Music critic John Aizlewood attributed her transAtlantic success to a fantastic voice and a genuinely original sound. “A lot of British bands fail in America because they give America something Americans do better — that’s why most British hiphop has failed,” he said. “But they won’t have come across anything quite like Amy Winehouse.” Winehouse’s rise was helped by her distinctive look — black beehive of hair, thickly lined cat eyes, girly tattoos — and her tart tongue. She was famously blunt in her assessment of her

peers, once describing Dido’s sound as “background music — the background to death” and saying of pop princess Kylie Minogue, “she’s not an artist ... she’s a pony.” The songs on “Back to Black” detailed breakups and breakdowns with a similar frankness. Lyrically, as in life, Winehouse wore her heart on her sleeve. “I listen to a lot of ‘60s music, but society is different now,” Winehouse said in 2007. “I’m a young woman and I’m going to write about what I know.” Even then, Winehouse’s performances were sometimes shambolic, and she admitted she was “a terrible drunk.” Increasingly, her personal life began to overshadow her career. She acknowledged struggling with eating disorders and told a newspaper that she had been diagnosed as manic depressive but refused to take medication. Soon accounts of her erratic behavior, canceled concerts and drink- and drug-fueled nights began to multiply. Photographs caught her unsteady on her feet or vacant-eyed, and she appeared unhealthily thin, with scabs on her face and marks on her arms. There were embarrassing videos released to the world on the Internet. One showed an addled Winehouse and Babyshambles singer Pete Doherty playing with newborn mice. Another, for which Winehouse apologized, showed her singing a racist ditty to the tune of a children’s song. Winehouse’s managers went to increasingly desperate lengths to keep the wayward star on the straight and narrow. Though she was often reported to be working on new material, fans got tired of waiting for the muchpromised followup to “Back to Black.”

Stewart suits up for battle in ‘Snow White’ B8 Sunday, July 24, 2011


SAN DIEGO (AP) — Kristen Stewart dons armor and wields a huge sword and shield for her next movie. Rest assured, it will not be your mother and father’s Snow White. Stewart joined other cast and crew Saturday at the Comic-Con fan convention for a preview of next year’s “Snow White and the Huntsman,” an action-packed twist on the fairy tale. The “Twilight” star told a Comic-Con crowd that doing a sweet, traditional Snow White was not something “I was jumping at.” What attracted her was that this Snow White was a bold leader with her feet firmly on the ground. “Also, I get to have a sword and stuff,” Stewart said. “Really cool weapons.” The movie is due out next June and is one of two “Snow White” movies Hollywood has coming. The other, due out next March, features Julia Roberts as the evil queen. The cast of Stewart’s “Snow

White” includes Charlize Theron as the wicked queen, Chris Hemsworth as a rugged huntsman and Sam Claflin as a prince. The movie starts shooting in a few weeks. Director Rupert Sanders showed off photos of the stars in costume, among them Stewart in her fighting outfit and Theron in a sleek black gown with savagely high and sharp collars. How evil is Theron’s queen? “She’s a serial killer,” Theron said. “I’m pretty much preparing to play a serial killer.” Sanders also showed a photo of the dwarves that accompany Snow White in this version, all standing in a row looking scruffier than a gang in a police lineup. The actors playing them include Ian McShane, Bob Hoskins, Ray Winstone, Nick Frost and Toby Jones. There are eight dwarves rather than the usual seven. Sanders said “there are eight because there are a few great lines when one of them gets killed.”

‘Terra Nova’ debut hatches at Comic-Con

SAN DIEGO (AP) — Comic-Con attendees took the first bite out of “Terra Nova.” During a Saturday panel at the annual pop-culture convention, some of the cast and crew of the highly anticipated Fox dinosaur drama unveiled the first half of the two-hour premiere, which is scheduled to debut Sept. 26. The footage featured the Shannon family time-traveling from an overpopulated 2149 to a colony erected in the pre-historic past. Stephan Lang, who stars as the leader of the Terra Nova settlement, flew from Australia, where the show is currently being filmed, to appear alongside the show’s producers. After the crowd of more than 4,000 roared when one human was devoured by a dinosaur, Lang joked there might be “a mandate from the network there will be one eating per week.” “You’re going to see some pretty good dino-onhuman action,” teased executive producer Jose Molina. The footage showed the Shannons encountering a giant centipede, a band of renegades known as the Sixers, a pack of plant-eating Brachiosaurus and one man-hungry Tyrannosaurus Rex. “Terra Nova,” which counts Steven Spielberg among its executive producers, was originally supposed to premiere last May, but the big-budget production was pushed to the fall. “You will see dinosaurs,” promised Molina. “We’re an expensive show. You’re going to see the money on the screen.” Kevin Black, the show’s visual effects supervisor, said creating the computer-generated dinos on a TV schedule has been a difficult undertaking, but the crew is “getting better as we go.” The producers promised the crowd that there would be more critters in the second half of the premiere episode, including dinosaurs that show off “how they’re related to birds.”

‘Grimm’ premiere episode unfolds at Comic-Con

SAN DIEGO (AP) — “Grimm” plans to turn fairytales on their heads. After previewing the first episode of NBC’s upcoming storytelling-meets-crimefighting procedural, which is loosely based on Little Red Riding Hood, the “Grimm” cast and crew promised Comic-Con attendees that other bedtime stories would be transformed into supernatural cases, including the Three Little Pigs, Cinderella and Goldilocks and the Three Bears. “I like all the fairytales where I don’t get thrown against the wall,” joked David Giuntoli, who plays detective Nick Burkhardt, one of the last surviving members of the Grimm family, which the show depicts as an ancient clan of profilers who have the ability to see baddies disguised as humans. In the first episode, he tracks down a big bad serial killer. Jim Kouf and David Greenwalt, the show’s writers and executive producers, said that Burkhardt would solve a fairytale-inspired crime each week, but Greenwalt added there would be “arcs for all the characters and terrible things are going to happen to them.” It’s familiar territory for the pair: They worked on “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” and “Angel.” The show takes place and will be filmed in Portland, Ore. Bitsie Tulloch, who plays Burkhardt’s fiance, Juliet, said the town is the perfect setting for the mythological procedural because it has a “builtin eeriness.” When asked by a fan if the storylines would move beyond the city, Greenwalt said “apparently, there’s a lot of monsters in Portland.”

25th annual Roswell Daily Record




Building Tomorrows Olympians


Summer is the most eventful time of the year, the warm weather and numerous outdoor activities are gold to Roswell’s youngest residents. They enjoy every minute before they head back into the classrooms, but before they go, there is one last event to attend, the SuperKids Triathlon. With summer coming to a close the last big event by Parks and Recreation, is hitting a milestone. The SuperKids Triathlon is turning 25 this year. The SuperKids Triathlon consists of three events: swim, bike and run for children ages 615. There is also an adult division called “Wunce Wuz” that allows adults to compete in the triathlon. The triathlon was created by Sally Toles 25 years ago and since then it has grown through the years and has showed no signs of stopping in the future. “SuperKids was created because of the Spring River Corridor Foundation. We needed to draw awareness to the bike trail and Roswell needed an athletic event for children,” said Toles. Toles had the help of her son Perry, an Olympic hopeful who was training for the ’88 Olympic team. He helped the children get ready for the triathlon and demonstrated how the course would run. The first event was a success with many children competing and media on hand. Luke Ragsdale, a Roswell attorney, competed at the first SuperKids. “I was 6 years old and I remember getting my bike and did it with a couple of friends. It was so long ago but I remember it being a cool event. I think it’s a neat thing that Roswell is still doing it and can pass it down to the next generations,” said Ragsdale. Toles also remembers a young Luke after the competition. “The news cameras were there and they interviewed Luke and they asked him, ‘How long did it take you to train?’ He responded, ‘I ran around the block and I was ready,’” said Toles. A participant biking in the In archived files, several thank-you triathlon. notes from appreciative parents thank Toles for the event. A note from Rags-

dale’s mother was among them. “Parents were so appreciative and supportive of the event, and it was great for the kids and the community,” said Toles. Perry T oles described the event as being a great place for kids to have an dream, Olympic have an idea of what the Olympic events were like and start training sooner in life if it’s something they Participants running in the portion of the triathlon. want. Toles and her family had a big hand in molding the annual event through the years. When the time came, Toles stepped away from the event and the torch was passed to Parks and Recreation to keep the event continuing. Today the event is working in conjunction with Park the Pounds, and is planned for August 6. “SuperKids teaches kids safety with the events in bike, swim, and run. It also teaches kids to reach goals and it gives them a sense of accomplishment,” said Laurie Jerge, of Parks and Recreation. All the contestants will receive a ribbon, certificate, and a T -shirt. Medals will go to the first, second and thirdplace winners of each age group for both boys and girls. The event can also be competed in groups, and teams can utilize one person for each event. Parks and Recreation promises this will be a special event in celebrating 25 years of athleticism. “I’m glad Parks and Recreation have continued the event, there were lots of fun wonder ful memories,” said Toles. The Parks and Recreation Department is still taking Perry Toles at a SuperKids Event. entries for SuperKids. For more information call 624-6720.

Parents concerned about toddler’s night terrors

Q: Our son is 3 years old and in the night he will sob, cry and scream out when he is asleep. Can you tell me more about night terrors? Juli: While nightmares are common in children, night terrors occur in only about 5 percent. Kids between the ages of 4 and 12 are most likely to have night terrors, but they can occur at any age. Nightmares happen during the Rapid Eye Movement (REM) stage of sleep and can usually be recalled when the child wakes up. Night terrors, on the other hand, occur when a child is switching between stages of sleep and usually have no narrative associated with them. In other words, with most night terrors, a child will not wake up and be able to recall a dream involving a scary monster or anything else specific.


When having a night terror, a child often sits up in the middle of a deep sleep, screaming and sometimes thrashing around. As hard as you try to console your child during a night terror, it’s not likely to work. He might not recognize you or even acknowledge your presence. Most experts recommend that you don’t wake your child up during an episode. Instead, keep your child from getting hurt, but let the terror run its course. He is likely to fall back asleep and have no memory the next morning of what happened. Night terrors tend to be genetic. You can reduce the likelihood of night terrors in your child by making sure he sticks to a regular sleep schedule. Kids are most likely to have night terrors when they are overly tired, sleeping in an unusual place, or dealing

with significant stress. Q: Our 7-year-old daughter is an over-the-top perfectionist. If her crayon strays outside the line, she throws the picture away. If her bedspread has wrinkles in it, she freaks out. How can we temper this behavior? Jim: There are practical steps you can take to minimize these challenges with your daughter. Author Shana Schutte has crafted a list of five ways to balance perfectionism in kids: 1) Don’t encourage your child’s per fectionism. If


your daughter throws a tantrum because the shoes you picked for her don’t match her outfit, don’t bend over backward to accommodate her. She needs to learn how to compromise in order to function in life. 2) You don’t indicate where your daughter falls in the birth order, but it’s important to recognize that firstborn children are often perfectionists. Parents tend to treat their firstborn with more attention to detail. If you’re a new parent and your baby’s pacifier falls in

Barry John Sullivan and Heather Beth Northcutt, formerly of Roswell, were united in marriage on May 21, 2011, in Woodlawn, Tenn. The Rev. Warren Ruland of Cullman, Ala., officiated at the outdoor backyard wedding.

the dirt, you sterilize it. But by the time child No. 3 arrives, you just wipe the dirt on your sleeve and stick it back in his mouth. 3) Take a personal inventory. If you tend to have per fectionist tendencies yourself, address them. If you stress out over every minor detail, your daughter will pick up on that and behave the same way. 4) Maintain a sense of humor. When your daughter feels like life is falling apart as the result of a mistake she’s made, a little joking or acting silly can send a strong message that imperfection is not the end of the world. 5) Tell a story from your own experience. This is especially helpful in moments when humor is not appropriate. Talk about how you felt when you were younger and believed you weren’t measuring up.

Your goal is not to change your daughter’s personality entirely. It is simply to help soften the edges so that she’ll feel more relaxed and secure despite her mistakes.

Healthy dips to inspire eating healthier snacks FOR THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Mr. and Mrs. DeKay 2011

Maybe you need another idea for packing fiber and vitamins into your child’s lunch. Or maybe you’re looking for a way to convince yourself to eat more fruit. Either way, making a dip to dunk your fruit in can make it a little more enticing, and a lot more fun.

In constructing a healthful dip for fruit, the main problem lies in the base of the dip. You want something that doesn’t pile on the fat or sugar, but still is interesting enough that you want to dunk your apple wedges and strawberries in it.

Fruit Dippers

Servings: 10 (each serving represents 2 tablespoons of each dip for a total of 6 tablespoons) For the base: 2 cups nonfat plain Greek-style yogurt 8 ounces low-fat cream cheese For the chocolate: 1 ⁄ 4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder 2 tablespoons honey Pinch cinnamon 2 tablespoons fat-free milk For the citrus: Zest of 1⁄2 lemon Zest of 1⁄2 orange 2 tablespoons honey 2 tablespoons orange

juice For the orchard spice: 1 tablespoon vanilla extract 1 teaspoon butter rum extract 1⁄2 teaspoon cinnamon 1⁄4 teaspoon dry ginger Pinch ground nutmeg Pinch ground cloves 2 tablespoons honey In the bowl of a food processor, combine the yogurt and cream cheese. Process until completely smooth. Divide the mixture into 3 bowls. To make the chocolate dipper, in a small bowl, mix together the cocoa powder, honey, cinnamon and milk until completely smooth. Add to one of the bowls of the yogurt

mixture and stir until smooth. To make the citrus dipper, stir both zests, the honey and orange juice into one of the remaining bowls of yogurt mixture. To make the orchard spice dipper, stir the vanilla, butter rum extract, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, cloves and honey into the last bowl of yogurt and cream cheese. Serve the dips with cut up wedges of apples, pears, peaches and berries.

Court denies motion to stop Loughner medication Roswell Daily Record

Prosecutors: Medication is necessary since his health is rapidly deteriorating

Jared Loughner

TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) — A federal appeals court has refused to bar prison officials from forcibly medicating Tucson shooting rampage suspect Jared Lee Loughner with a psychotropic drug. Judges from the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals Friday night denied the emergency motion on the medication from defense attorneys, and also rejected their request for daily reports about his condition

at a federal prison facility in Springfield, Mo. Federal prosecutors said in a filing earlier Friday that Loughner should remain medicated because he may be a danger to himself and his mental and physical condition was rapidly deteriorating. Loughner, 22, has pleaded not guilty to 49 charges in the Jan. 8 shooting spree that killed six people and wounded 13 others, including U.S. Rep.

Gabrielle Giffords. He’s been at the Springfield facility since May 27 after a federal judge concluded he was mentally unfit to help in his legal defense. Mental health experts have determined Loughner suffers from schizophrenia and will try to make him psychologically fit to stand trial. He’s expected to spend up to four months at the Missouri prison. The 9th Circuit had previously scheduled an Aug. 30 hearing in San Francisco on an appeal by Loughner’s lawyers over forced

medication. It wasn’t immediately clear if that hearing will still be held. On Thursday, Loughner’s attor neys questioned whether the forced medication violates an earlier order by the court that forbid prison officials from involuntarily medicating Loughner as judges mull an appeal on his behalf. They also said their client has been on 24-hour suicide watch. U.S. Attorney for Arizona Dennis Burke wrote in his filing Friday that “despite being under suicide watch, Loughner’s unmedicated

behavior is endangering him and that no measure short of medication will protect him from himself more than temporarily because they do not address the mental state which underlies his selfdestructive actions.” Loughner was forcibly medicated between June 21 and July 1 after prison of ficials deter mined his outbursts there posed a danger to others. He was given twice daily doses of Risperidone, a drug used for people with schizophrenia, bipolar disorder and severe behavior problems.

Gershon Luxemburg fits a helmet on a student at the Maccabi Jerusalem Boxing Club in Jerusalem, June 28.

JERUSALEM (AP) — When Gershon Luxemburg started his boxing club 30 years ago, he was looking to build champions, not bridges. But thanks to a loyal cadre of Jewish and Arab fighters who flock to his stuffy gym inside a converted underground bomb shelter, Luxemburg’s club has become a rare melting pot that brings the warring sides closer together — one punch at a time. Luxemburg and his brother Eli run Jerusalem’s only official boxing club. The cramped, smelly gym has pictures of Muhammad Ali and other boxing greats gracing the walls and an assortment of heavy bags hanging from the ceiling. Located in a neighborhood in Jewish west Jerusalem, it draws boxers from all parts of the city and has become a second home for both aspiring professionals and amateurs looking to learn the sweet science. Despite the sport’s violent nature, Luxemburg says Jews and Arabs never clash in his

gym. “It’s very easy for me to see hate in someone’s eyes, and I’ve never seen it here,” he said. “The boxers are close. They are like brothers to each other.” At a time when Israelis and Palestinians are increasingly segregated, the Maccabi Jerusalem Boxing Club offers a hub of coexistence. Jews and Arabs who would normally never cross paths jog, skip rope and spar. They pant and sweat, and the occasional nose gets bloody, but tensions never rise after the bell is rung. Luxemburg says it is typical for aspiring boxers to come with troubled pasts. But learning how to fight actually lessens violent tendencies, he said. “When someone has that confidence in himself, he doesn’t look for a fight. He doesn’t need to throw stones,” he said. “Sports brings people together. When you get in that ring together, when you get so close you can smell the other person ... it’s a different level.”

He said that in sanctioned tournaments he lets his fighters get “cruel” and hit hard. But the in-house training is kept civil, even cordial. Ismail Jafrei, a 37-year -old Palestinian truck driver from east Jerusalem, the section of the city claimed by the Palestinians for their future capital, says the trick is to leave politics at the door. “When we walk down those steps we leave politics, religion and all that mess outside,” he said. “Inside the club, we are all brothers. We spar and at the end we shake hands and everyone goes their own way.” A frequent Israeli sparring partner agrees. “We’re just fighters and it doesn’t matter if one is an Arab and one is a Jew,” said Yehuda Luxemburg, a 23-year-old Israeli combat soldier and nephew of the club’s trainers. “There is something pure about boxing. It brings people together.” Eli Luxemburg is an equal opportunity screamer. At a

Move your feet! You aren’t moving your feet!” he yelled at a Palestinian boxer. The shy east Jerusalemite nodded, and Yehuda Luxemburg gave him some pointers on footwork and other fine points. “Now hit me!” he said. The Luxemburg brothers were both for mer champs in their native Uzbekistan before immigrating to Israel. They now enjoy a cult-like status among Jerusalem’s small but tightly knit boxing community. They instruct in a mixture of Hebrew, Russian and English. While many Palestinians in Jerusalem know Hebrew, instructions are translated into

Arabic for those who don’t understand. Israeli boxers have enjoyed a moderate level of success internationally. Most originate from the former Soviet Union, such as former WBA super welterweight champion Yuri Foreman and heavyweight Roman Greenberg — nicknamed the “Lion from Zion.” Some of the Gershon Luxemburg’s fighters have gone on to compete in the Olympics and in European championships, but he says his ultimate dream is to host a tournament in Jerusalem with all religions attending — and perhaps Muhammad Ali, too. “I don’t care if they become boxing champions, so long as they become champions in life,” he said.

Backpack food programs helps schoolchildren in need  Program aims to ensure

kids don’t go hungry over the weekend

When Denver Public Schools counselor Patricia Vaughan noticed a thirdgrader leaving the building with a bulging backpack, she asked him what was inside. She was stunned to see that the bag was full of food for him and his family. The youngster, who was the best tetherball player on the playground, had been letting other children win in return for food from their lunches. “He very proudly exhibited all the food he had negotiated for at the lunch table,” she said. “I didn’t realize that there was this kind of need, and that kids were addressing it on their own. I felt glad that he was resilient enough to come up with a solution to take food home to his family.” The conversation with

the boy made Vaughan realize that many of the children who receive free and reduced-cost breakfasts and lunches at school during the week went hungry on weekends and during school holidays. She began looking for a way to ensure that the children had food when they weren’t in school. Vaughan soon discovered that food banks, social service agencies and schools around the country were facing the same issue. The popular solution: Backpack food programs, where students take a backpack full of enough shelf-stable food to eat over the weekend. The programs have sprung up around the country as officials discover the need, said Karrie Denniston, vice president of Feeding America, a leading domestic hunger -relief charity. “It’s such a presenting need across the nation,” she said. “It’s really a very

hidden epidemic.” Demand for the program increases every year, she said. In 2010, the organization supplied 5.8 million backpacks, up from 2.1 million in 2008. When Vaughan started her school’s program in the fall of 2009, she provided food for 30 backpacks. This year, she anticipates sending food home with more than 350 kids. Often school personnel realize the problem after noticing other trends like an increase in discipline problems on Fridays, as children realize they will likely go without meals for two days, or more Monday morning visits to the school clinic, where kids go because a lack of food has made them tired or dizzy. The programs operate fairly simply. Volunteers pack the backpacks full of groceries like granola bars, easy-to-prepare canned or boxed food, apple sauce, peanut butter and jelly,

juice boxes, canned fruit and vegetables and oatmeal. Some programs provide fresh fruit and vegetables. Once the bags are packed, children take them home over the weekend and return the backpacks on Monday. The cost of filling a backpack ranges from $2 to $8 a week depending on how much food is donated and whether the program is big enough to buy in bulk. “It’s such a simple solution,” Denniston said. “It’s so easy to love this program.” The program also helps children academically, said Stan Curtis, founder of the Louisville, Ky.-based Blessings in a Backpack. “Children lear n best when all their basic needs are meet,” said Curtis, whose organization provided more than 37,000 kids with weekly backpacks of food last year. Principals routinely tell him that test scores, atten-

dance and behavior improve after the program has begun, he said. At Lowry Elementary School in Denver, teachers have noticed a lot of positive changes since the program began, Vaughan said. “It puts them on a level playing field with every other kid,” she said. “Their belly is full, and they can all start from the same spot.” Before her children started bringing food home from the school, Janice Wright often had to visit the food bank at the end of the month in order to feed the family. “The kids always have something to eat,” the Denver resident said. “They love it.” Helping families of fer their children nutritious meals during the weekend also helps build a sense of community at the school, said Dollie Cottrill, principal at Price’s Fork Elementary School in Blacksburg,

Va. “We’re always looking for ways to help our children and families — especially in the past few years with the down economy,” she said. Children stop by the nurse’s of fice and grab their backpacks on their way home on Friday afternoons. The pick-up is very subtle so that other children in the building don’t realize what’s happening, Cottrill said. “It’s a privacy issue,” she said. “We respect that this might not be something you want to advertise.” The program, which is organized by nearby St. Michael Lutheran Church, has garnered support from local universities, businesses and civic organizations, said the Rev. John Wertz. “Folks have been amazingly generous,” he said. “The idea of hungry children stirs something in people’s hearts.”

DEAR ABBY: I live down the street from the town cemetery. It contains some old stones from the 1800s that are starting to crumble. This cemetery has become a favorite place for many to walk their dogs or ride their bikes. One woman lets her dog run off-leash and her young daughters play tag around the stones. Another neighbor allowed her children to set off fireworks. I was taught that in a cemetery, people should behave as if they are in a church. It upsets me to see this place used as a playground. This is a final resting place! Can you comment on proper etiquette in the cemetery? RESPECTFUL IN OHIO

DEAR RESPECTFUL: Who is in charge of the upkeep of the cemetery? That individual should be informed about what’s happening, so decorum can be re-established and activities that can cause it to deteriorate can be stopped. The idea that people have been using it as a dog park, where the animals can urinate and defecate on the graves, is appalling. Cemetery etiquette is simple: Treat the graves as you would the graves of your parents, or as you would like your

Dear Readers: This year will be the celebration of 50 years of the Heloise column in newspaper syndication. Looking through my files, I found some charming and funny columns that my mother, the original Heloise (19191977), printed. I thought you would get a laugh and a smile reading them, as I did. My mother received lots of mail from readers with PERSONAL QUESTIONS. Here is what she had to say in a column from 1970: Dear Folks: So many of your letters want to know if my day is all “peaches and cream”... do I have a dog, how old are

DEAR ABBY: Why do men’s pants come in sizes by waist and length and women’s don’t? I’m tall, and I’d like to find a pair of slacks that fit me off the rack instead of having to rip out seams.

Good question. I discussed it with fashion designer Bradley Bayou, who said:

“Historically, women’s fashion has always measured women only at the bust, hip and waist. It was considered improper (and unnecessary) to measure an inseam since women were only supposed to wear skirts and dresses. It wasn’t until the 1930s and ’40s, with Katharine Hepburn and Marlene Dietrich, that it became OK for women to wear pants — but only when measured by skilled tailors.

“Again, for the dignity of women, ‘universal sizing’ (short, average or tall) was created as the solution for not measuring a woman’s inseam. It also costs less to manufacture women’s pants in universal sizing for mass production. Pants with an inseam measurement were kept for higherend slacks or couture. “While currently some women’s slacks/jeans have an inseam, they’re primarily found in a universal size, while men’s pants are — and always will be — available with an inseam listed.”

cleaning out the refrigerator, I knocked over a big can of condensed milk and it spilled. But I did learn something: Don’t use a beverage can opener to open those cans. Use an ice pick. I woke up this morning with fever blisters, broke a fingernail down to the quick opening a new bottle of antiseptic, the toilet was running and I could not fix it. Last night a strong wind blew the back gate off, I wanted to put a new lock on, I couldn’t find the Phillips screwdriver. Then I remembered the cleaning woman couldn’t come today. (She comes two afternoons a week.) So when that dawned on me, I got going and made the beds, vacuumed the rooms, emptied the garbage cans, the trash and cleaned the whole caboodle that we had let go over the weekend. Oh yes, and while I was cooking a hamburger patty for lunch, the phone rang and naturally, you know what happened ... Do I have a dog? Two, Chihuahuas. The boy is 8, weighs 2 pounds and is named Juarez. His sweetheart is 1 year old, 3 pounds and is called Tequila. They are fawncolored, and we just love ‘em and spoil ‘em like mad. How old are my children? Louis is 27 (in 1970) and has been married for six years. My daughter, Ponce, is 19 (1970) and goes to college. In the summer she helps me read your letters and gives me a hand testing the things you sweet gals write to me about. (She’s going to make a wonderful wife for some lucky boy). Now as to me: My name is pronounced HELLO-WEEZE — as in sneeze. I’m 50 years old, blind-as-a-bat, and have to wear reading glasses. My hair is a mousey brown and streaked with gray. I spray it silver most of the time. Sometimes I spray it blue. The spray costs 98 cents a can and I have used it for years. I am an identical twin and my mother is a twin, and we were ALL born on the SAME day. And the next time you have one of my little peachesand-cream days, don’t sit down and bawl all alone — pick up that pencil and write to me — then we can bawl together. With fond affection.

No end in sight as Obama restarts debt talks Roswell Daily Record

BOEHNER: Obama “demanded more money at the last minute”

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama and congressional leaders are scrambling to find a way forward on a debt deal after House Speaker John Boehner threw negotiations into crisis by walking out on them with less than two weeks left to avert a potentially catastrophic default. A visibly frustrated Obama called Boehner, R-Ohio, to come back to the White House Saturday morning along with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada, Reid’s counterpart Sen. Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., and House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi of California. “We have run out of time and they are going to have to explain to me how it is that we are going to avoid default,” the president told reporters at a hastily scheduled press conference Friday night. Boehner accepted the invitation even while arguing that Obama bore the blame for the collapse of

talks. “It’s the president who walked away from his agreement and demanded more money at the last minute,” Boehner said. “And the only way to get that extra revenue was to raise taxes.” The political theater played out even as the Aug. 2 deadline drew ever nearer. Barring action by then, the Treasury will be unable to pay its bills, and the economic fallout could send interest rates up, threaten the fragile U.S. recovery and send shock waves around the globe. Yet the deadline pressure has brought the parties arguably no closer to a solution, even though all involved insist they do not want a default. Underscoring the uncertainty, for the first time since talks began Obama declined to of fer assurances, when asked, that default would be avoided — although moments later he said he was confident of that outcome.

Obama said that Boehner left a deal on the table that was better for Republicans than for Democrats since spending cuts totaling $2.6 trillion outweighed new tax revenue of $1.2 trillion, and he said he was losing confidence that the underlying deficit problems will be dealt with even if the debt ceiling is raised. “I’ve been left at the altar now a couple of times,” Obama said wryly. Still, aides on both sides said agreement had been reached on two highly controversial changes. One would raise the age of eligibility of Medicare gradually from 65 to 67 for future beneficiaries, while the other would slow the increase in cost-of-living raises in Social Security checks. Given that accord, it seemed likely those agreements would be among many carrying over to the broader meeting Saturday morning and beyond.

Calista Corp. to shut down, liquidate Alaska Newspapers ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — Rising costs have prompted the owners of six weekly newspapers serving rural and largely Alaska Native communities to close, putting nearly 40 people out of work. Calista Corp., an Anchorage-based Alaska Native corporation which has owned the Alaska Newspaper Inc. chain for 19 years, announced Friday the increasing costs of fuel, paper and print technology led to the board’s decision to shutter the chain and liquidate. “As a responsibility to our 12,000 shareholders, we had to take a hard look at the subsidiary and make a tough decision,” Calista President and CEO Andrew Guy said in a statement. The weeklies in the chain include the Arctic

Sounder, the Bristol Bay T imes, the Cordova Times, the Dutch Harbor Fisherman, the Seward Phoenix Log and the award-winning Tundra Drums. The last issues will be sometime in August. The papers covered an area spanning 1,500 miles with only one paper, that in Seward, on the state’s road system. “It is a sad day not just for the journalists who are losing their jobs, but for the readers who are losing their watchdogs, their storytellers, their advocates who helped them to better understand their communities,” said Julia O’Malley, president of the Alaska Press Club. The papers continued the tradition of Native publishing that began in 1961 with Howard Rock’s

Tundra Times, according to its website. Villages then didn’t have phones or television, and the Times served as a link to the outside world while also helping unite them around the issue of Alaska Native land claims, the website says. Calista Corp. has owned the chain since 1992, and in recent years was able to absorb many writers who were laid off at the state’s larger newspapers. Rod Boyce, the managing editor at the Fairbanks Daily News-Miner, once worked for the chain, and said the closure will be felt. “Any time you lose newspapers, it’s tough, and in a state as geographically large as this one, the loss of those newspapers is tremendous,” he said.

And with diminished resources at larger papers, it’s difficult for them to fill the void for those communities, he said. Calista’s CEO said the chain leaves behind an impressive legacy. “We’re very appreciative of the superb staff and extraordinary talent that have worked so hard to report on rural Alaska. We genuinely hope the communities affected by this will find a new media voice to tell their stories,” Guy said. Also closing are ANI’s quarterly magazine First Alaskans and Camai Printing, an Anchorage printing house. In all, 35 full-time and 3 part-time jobs will be eliminated, said Thom Leonard, a Calista spokesman.

Settlement reached in patient deaths NEW ORLEANS (AP) — A New Orleans judge has approved a $25 million settlement in a class-action lawsuit filed over the deaths of patients at a New Orleans hospital after Hurricane Katrina. The deal was reached between Tenet Healthcare Corp., which operated the Memorial Medical Center, and lawyers for patients and others at the hospital during and after the storm. Memorial has since been sold. “It was a daunting task,” Joseph Bruno, the lead attorney for the plaintiffs, said Friday afternoon. “It took five years and a lot of work.” The settlement still requires formal approval by those eligible to take part in the deal, including patients, survivors of the dead and visitors at the hospital when Katrina struck. That hearing is set for Oct. 27. The approval of the settlement was made by New Orleans Civil Court Judge Rosmary Ledet Thursday night. Ledet called the proposed settlement “fair, reasonable and adequate.” A spokeswoman for Tenet said Friday they would not comment on the settlement.

In the agreement Tenet still denies the charges against them. The hospital flooded and lost power after the hurricane struck on Aug. 29, 2005, leaving patients — some seriously ill — suffering as temperatures soared. Authorities said 45 people died as rescuers fought floodwaters to reach the medical center in Uptown New Orleans. “The hospital kept saying ‘we were providing a safe haven,’” Bruno said. “But they had not planned for flooding even though they had met with the Corps of Engineers and been warned the levees could be overtopped.” Floodwaters from Katrina’s storm surge covered 80 percent of the city flooded as levees breached or were overtopped. At Memorial, floodwaters filled the first floor and surrounding streets, making rescue difficult. Many of the seriously ill had to be carried to the roof so helicopters could pick them up two days after the storm. Electricity in the area was lost and the hospital generator was useless after the flood filled the basement where the control switch was located. Windows could not be opened to

allow ventilation and temperatures reportedly rose to 110 degrees inside the building. Medical equipment requiring electricity had to be operated by hand. There were 167 patients and about 1,400 non-employees in the hospital when the storm hit. Bruno said all would be eligible to take part in the settlement. Ledet ordered that all possible members of the class action suit be notified of the proposed settlement by Aug. 5, and that any objections to it be filed by Sept. 21. If the settlement is approved at the October hearing, Ledet will have Special Master Gilbert Andry IV, prepare and submit a distribution schedule of the $25 million less legal fees for her approval. A tentative agreement between Tenet and the plaintiffs had been reached in March during jury selection for a trial, but the outlines of the agreement were kept confidential. During the first quarter of 2011, Dallas-based Tenet Healthcare earned $73 million, down 17 percent from the first quarter of 2010. The company operates 49 hospitals in 11 states, along with 84 outpatient clinics.

OBAMA: “We have run out of time”

NATION Mass. union supports delay in utilities merger

BRAINTREE, Mass. (AP) — A utility workers union has announced its support of a recent motion filed by Massachusetts officials seeking a delay in the proposed merger between Boston-based NStar and Connecticut-based Northeast Utilities. The Utility Workers Union of America Local 369 said Friday it supports the motion filed by the Massachusetts Department of Energy Resources. Local 369 president David Leonardi says his union filed a motion urging the Department of Public Utilities to grant the petition filed for the delay. He says he has heard conflicting comments about jobs that’ll be eliminated and supports a request for additional information. Northeast Utilities and NStar oppose the delay. They say it could scuttle the $4.7 billion deal. The merger would create the largest utility in New England. Northeast Utilities and NStar say it wouldn’t stifle competition or increase rates.

Judge cuts damages in music downloading case

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — A federal judge has again reduced the penalty imposed on a Minnesota woman for illegally sharing 24 songs online, this time from $1.5 million to $54,000. U.S. District Judge Michael J. Davis said in a ruling Friday that the penalty of $62,500 per song imposed by a jury last year in the long-running case was unreasonable. He reduced that to $2,250 per song. Attorneys for Jammie Thomas-Rasset argued the $1.5 million judgment violated the due process clause of the U.S. Constitution because the penalty had no reasonable relationship to the damage caused. The recording industry sued Thomas-Rasset in 2006 for illegally sharing music on the file-sharing site Kazaa. Three juries have ruled against her, but the case has seen multiple appeals.


Utility executives big political donors in Japan

TOKYO (AP) — Japanese utility company executives were by far the biggest individual donors to Japan’s former ruling party during its last year in power, accounting for a whopping 72 percent of personal contributions, a news report said. While the donations amounted to only a small fraction of the Liberal Democratic Party’s operations fund, the revelation is likely to add to questions surrounding connections between power companies and politicians amid the nuclear disaster in northeastern Japan set off by the March 11 earthquake and tsunami. Executives from nine utility companies contributed 47 million yen ($595,000) to the Liberal Democratic Party in 2009, Kyodo News agency reported. That’s nearly three quarters of the nearly 65 million yen ($823,000) received in 2009 in total individual donations to the party. Among the donors were executives with Tokyo Electric Power, which operates the radiation-spewing reactors at Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear plant. The crisis is the world’s worst nuclear disaster since Chernobyl. Personal political donations are relatively rare in Japan, accounting for only about 5 percent of the LDP funding in 2009. The vast majority of the former ruling party’s 2.8 billion yen ($36 million) main operations fund comes from corporate donations. The utility executives’ personal donations averaged out to about 300,000 yen ($3,800) each, well within the legal limit for individual contributions. The individual contributions are still likely to draw scrutiny, however, especially since the power industry had stopped making corporate donations to the ruling party in 1974, according to Kyodo.

Joe Simon’s co-creation, Capt. America, returns

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — In creating Captain America, the latest Marvel superhero to bound onto the big screen this summer, Joe Simon and Jack Kirby relied on reality for their inspiration. “With Captain America, the villain came first. Jack and I read the newspapers, and knew what was going on over in Europe. And there he was — Adolf Hitler, with his ridiculous moustache, highpitched ranting and goose-stepping followers,” Simon recalled in a recent interview. “He was the perfect bad guy, much better than anything we could have made up, so what we needed was to create his ultimate counterpart.” And so was born Steve Rogers, a scrawny would-be soldier with a 4-F physique and the stalwart heart of a warrior, even if the Army would not take him. The character who would one day become an Avenger and form a cornerstone of the Marvel Universe came to life in the pages of “Captain America Comics” in December 1940, giving Hitler a hard right hook and capturing the imagination of a nation waiting for war. “In (my) autobiography, I describe the way Jack and I developed our collaboration, often jumping around the room tossing ideas at each other, ‘Let’s do it this way!’ and ‘Let’s take it that way!’ and before we knew it, we had the entire first issue ready to show Martin Goodman at Timely Comics,” Simon said, recounting a tale from “Joe Simon, My Life in Comics,” published earlier this year. “We based Cap’s sidekick (Bucky) on an old high school buddy of mine, and Martin loved it!” he added. The character proved a popular hit — the first issue sold a million copies and put Timely Comics solidly among newsstand favorites, a position held through the 1950s before it became Marvel in the 1960s. While not the comic book world’s first patriotic superhero,

In this undated publicity photo released by Titan Books, Joe Simon, co-creator of the Captain America comic, is shown. The character proved a popular hit _ the first issue sold a million copies and put Timely Comics, the forerunner of Marvel, solidly among newsstand favorites, a position held through the 1940s and 1950s before becoming Marvel in the 1960s.

Captain America quickly became the most popular, inspiring dozens of imitators, said Tom Brevoort, Marvel’s senior vice president of publishing.

“This had a lot to do with the kinetic visual style that Simon and Kirby employed on the strip — it was the most exciting-looking comic book of its era, and set the

tenor for all superhero art that came thereafter,” Brevoort explained. Mark Evanier, a comics historian, said that it was Captain

America’s sales that helped put Timely — just one of a plethora of publishers — on a firm footing that enabled it to survive the shakedown that came after the war. Now, 71 years on, Rogers is still going strong, both in comic shops and now in theaters with Paramount’s “Captain America: The First Avenger.” But it’s not the first time the shield-slinging patriot has been on the big screen. In 1944, his adventures were made into a serial that were broadcast on TV in 1953. In 1990, there was also a low-budget film about the character. “He’s absolutely a seminal bedrock character for the Marvel line,” said Brevoort. “And he’s a concept that anybody can understand. Even people who’ve never read a Captain America story before intuitively comprehend what he’s about and what he stands for, and no matter where you happen to sit along the political spectrum in this country, Captain America represents something to you. He’s astonishingly universal.” The last time Captain America drew national headlines was in 2007 when he was gunned down on the steps of a U.S. courthouse after a prolonged battle over personal rights that pitted Marvel heroes against each other. Though the death did not stick — they seldom do in comics — the story line by Ed Brubaker pushed the character back into the national consciousness. Simon isn’t surprised, even though after World War II, Cap and other superheroes found themselves edged out by comic book buyers in favor of Western, romance and horror comics. “But through it all, I knew we had a terrific hero,” said Simon. “Cap is one of the great comic book icons, and as dangerous as the world is today — more than it was in the 1940s — we need him around more than ever to act as our moral compass.”

Comic-Con readies for ‘Cowboys & Aliens’ premiere SAN DIEGO (AP) — The red carpet is in place and the fans are lining up as Comic-Con prepares for its first Hollywood-style movie premiere. “Cowboys & Aliens” will make its world premiere Saturday night at the San Diego Civic Theatre. Director Jon Favreau and stars Harrison Ford, Daniel Craig and Olivia Wilde are among the celebrities expected to attend, along with hundreds of Comic-Con attendees, who followed clues texted to their cell phones to win tickets to the event. “This kind of overshadows Comic-Con,” said 22year-old Khalil Tiner of Las Vegas, a six-year veteran of the fan festival. “This is something new, and it's exciting.” Wendy Lee of Los Angeles and Chris Saguisag of San Francisco, both 44, said they enjoyed dashing around town trying to win tickets. “We got a lot of cardio running after the bricks”

that contained a chance to attend the premiere, Lee said. “It’s something we worked for really hard.” The couple was in line hours ahead of the scheduled 8 p.m. showing, but they didn’t mind missing the colorful happenings inside the San Diego Convention Center. “We already saw everything we wanted to see,” Lee said. Favreau said he wanted to unveil his sci-fi Western at Comic-Con to thank conventioneers for their support of the films he introduced there in previous years, including his two “Iron Man” movies. Favreau showed early footage from “Cowboys & Aliens” during a ComicCon panel last year, whetting fans’ appetites for the film, and he invited them to be a part of the premiere to “see what that part of the equation is like.” “They generally don’t get to experience that part of it,” he said. “That’s more of a Hollywood thing.”

Colin Farrell opens acting up during ‘Fright Night’ panel

SAN DIEGO (AP) — Colin Farrell plays a vampire in his latest film, but he says almost any role will do: He just loves being an actor. The 35-year-old opened up during a panel featuring the update of “Fright Night” Friday at the Comic-Con fan convention. When a fan asked whether he preferred his earlier starring roles or his more recent character parts, Farrell said that in the last six years, he “reconnected with the mystery of the whole thing and the imagination of the whole thing and how much fun it is to be an actor.” “I came to success really quickly in relation to most other actors,” he said. “The idea of how fast the chaos around me took grip, it’s

insane. And I, myself personally, I lost sight of why I went to my first acting class when I was 17 in Dublin ... I lost sight of that through this good fortune I was experiencing in Hollywood. So in the last six years I reconnected with the Colin who was 17. “It’s a lot of fun to do what we do. It’s such a fortunate place to find yourself,” he said. He plays the vampirenext-door Jerry Dandrige in “Fright Night,” a reimagining of the 1985 horror classic that’s set for release Aug. 19. Farrell took the stage again later in the day for a panel about the reboot of “Total Recall.” He plays Doug Quaid, the same role originated by

Arnold Schwarzenegger in the 1990 original. Farrell’s description of his character’s arc echoes

what the actor has experienced in his own life: “I loved the idea of a man jour neying from being a

man in a deep, deep slumber to consciousness,” he said. He described his charac-

ter’s battle in the film as one between the intellectual and the emotional. “Total Recall” director Len Wiseman said that while his version is totally dif ferent from the first film. It draws from the original source material: Philip K. Dick’s story “We Can Remember It For You Wholesale.” Besides Farrell, the film stars Jessica Biel, Bryan Cranston, Bill Nighy, John Cho and Kate Beckinsale. It is set for release next summer. Comic-Con continues through Sunday at the San Diego Convention Center.


Roswell Daily Record

Coppola to take interactive ‘Twixt’ film on tour SAN DIEGO (AP) — Francis Ford Coppola is turning big-screen movies into a live experience. The filmmaker showed an audience at the Comic-Con fan convention Saturday portions of his upcoming creepy tale "Twixt," a film whose theatrical release he hopes to precede by a national tour in which Coppola will oversee a different version each night. Coppola says digital technology allows him to add scenes, lengthen or shorten sequences, shuffle the action around, alter music and make other tweaks depending on how that night's audience is responding to the film. "If the audience is the mood to go off on a little bit of a tangent, then you'd be able to go off on a tangent, but if the audience seems to want to cut to the chase, you could cut to the chase," Coppola said in an interview after his presentation. Filmmakers often have the experience in test screenings where they sense viewers' interest lagging and the "audience is not so into it, so you go, 'Oh, I wish the good part would come sooner, I wish the good part would come sooner,'" Coppola said. "With this, you can do that." "Twixt" stars Val Kilmer as a writer on a book tour in a strange town where he's caught up in the mystery of savage killings and has ghostly encounters with a young girl (Elle Fanning) and the specter of Edgar Allan Poe (Ben Chaplin). The idea actually originated from a dream Coppola had two years ago about a mysterious girl and in which Poe appeared as sort of a spirit guide.

The film also will include a blend of 2-D and 3-D. Coppola is a fan of 3-D but does not necessarily like wearing the special glasses needed for the whole length of a film. He said he watched most of "Avatar" with the glasses off and put them on only for big effects and action scenes when the 3-D was most prevalent. Viewers of "Twixt" will see an onscreen cue letting them know they should put on their glasses for a 3-D scene in the heart of the film and a 3-D finale, Coppola said. Comic-Con — where thousands of fans gather dressed as superheroes, villains, fairy-tale princesses and other fantastic characters — seems like an odd spot for the filmmaker behind "The Godfather" saga to turn up. But he's been here before, to promote his 1992 take on "Dracula." Coppola had wanted to do his live tour just before this Halloween, but the film does not yet have a distributor for general release. He is premiering the full film at the Toronto International Film Festival in September and hopes to land a distributor after that so he could release "Twixt" next spring, with his live, interactive tour coming just before that for about three weeks. "I consider it more what I call malleable cinema than interactive," Coppola said. "Because I didn't shoot it with real alternative plot nines. I could have, but I was thinking of it more as a Halloween show that you tailor to the audience. Not, does he go into the left door or the right door? And if he goes into the left door, that's a different story."
