Roswell’s famed Sage, the Search and Rescue dog, has been nominated in the competition for National Honors as the Hero Dog Award from the American Humane Association. Sage is New Mexico’s last surviving dog who served during 9/11. She is one of 29 dogs competing for the national honor and currently ranks fourth. Sage’s handler and human companion, Diane Whetsel, explained that the competition depends on votes rather than merit. “I don’t see the other dogs have the same merit
that Sage has. We need to show the country that New Mexico has the top dog.” Her exploits in the service for her country are numerous and worthy of praise. After the 9/11 terrorist attacks, she was part of the searches conducted at the Pentagon. During the aftermath of hurricanes Katrina and Rita, she served in the Gulf Coast. She has also done several tours of duty in Iraq. The people of Roswell can cast votes for Sage at herodog awards.org. Supporters can vote once every 24 hours, until the deadline, July 31.

Sage led a parade in her honor Feb. 26.

Healing the conflicts of the present through an understanding of the past was a recurring theme during the Hispano Chamber of Commerce awards ceremony at the First Baptist Church, Friday evening. Juan Oropesa, executive director of the Hispano Chamber of Commerce, said the purpose of the awards ceremony is to “recognize businesses, individuals, and organizations that help improve the community.” The Corporation of the Year award was given to Xcel Energy.

Pearce sponsors WIPP jobs bill City names 5 Sci-Fi Film Festival winners Rep. Steve Pearce, RN.M., introduced legislation Friday that he says will spur more jobs for the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant near Carlsbad. Pearce’s bill will allow WIPP to store additional waste while not altering the type or grade of waste it handles, according to his office. The bill would allow the facility to take in waste from federal
sources other than the Department of Energy. “WIPP has demonstrated great success within its current mission and has safely removed over 75,000 cubic meters of waste from Department of Energy sites around the country,” Pearce said in a statement. “Given WIPP’s success, we must act now to protect the jobs at WIPP, which also support
other jobs in the local community. While modest, this proposal will help ensure that these important jobs remain in New Mexico.” Pearce’s office argued that the facility that handles radioactive waste is running out of material to process under its current limited mission.

President pitches plan to promote high-tech innovation
WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama says technological innovations can help create jobs and spur growth in clean energy and advanced manufacturing. In his radio and Internet address, the president promoted a plan he outlined Friday in which the government would join with universities and corporations to re-ignite the manufacturing sector with an
emphasis on cutting-edge research and new technologies. “Their mission is to come up with a way to get ideas from the drawing board to the manufacturing floor to the marketplace as swiftly as possible, which will help create quality jobs, and make our businesses more competitive,” Obama said in the address aired Saturday. It was taped Friday dur-
ing his visit to Car negie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, where he saw a display of mini-robots that explore water and sewer pipes. He marveled at robots that can defuse a bomb, mow a lawn, even scrape old paint. With growing interest from the military, businesses and consumers, the

AP-GfK Poll shows people divided on looming debt crisis
Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke holds a news conference at the Federal Reserve in Washington, Wednesday.

WASHINGTON (AP) — It might be time for another midnight ride by Paul Revere, this time warning “the creditors are coming.” Americans seem not to have awakened to the fast-looming debt crisis that could summon a new recession, imperil their stock market investments and shatter faith in the world’s most powerful economy. Those are among the implications, both sudden and long-lasting, expected to unfold if the U.S. defaults on debt payments for the first time in history. Facing an August deadline for raising the country’s borrowing limit or setting loose the conse-
quences, politicians and economists are plenty alarmed. The people? Apparently not so much. They’re divided on whether to raise the limit, according to an Associated Press-GfK poll that found 41 percent opposed to the idea and 38 percent in favor. People aren’t exactly blasé. A narrow majority in the poll expects an economic crisis to ensue if the U.S., maxed out on its borrowing capacity, starts missing interest payments to creditors. But even among that group, 37 percent say no dice to raising the limit. In Washington’s humid air, talk of a financial apocalypse is thick.
There are warnings of “credit markets in a state of panic,” as the House Budget Committee chairman, Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis., put it, causing a sudden drop-off in the country’s ability to borrow and pushing the gover nment of f a “credit cliff.” He was characterizing a report by the government’s nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office that warns of a “sudden fiscal crisis” in which investors might abandon U.S. bonds and force the government to pay steep interest rates and impose spending cuts and tax See DEBT, Page A3

Business, free speech cases top Supreme Court term
Demonstrators gather outside the Supreme Court in Washington, Tuesday, to protest the court’s Wal-Mart sex discrimination class action lawsuit decision.
WASHINGTON (AP) — The Supreme Court’s conservative majority made it harder for people to band together to sue the nation’s largest businesses in the two most far-reaching rulings of the term the justices are wrapping up on Monday. The two cases putting new limits on class-action lawsuits were among more than a dozen in which the justices divided 5-4 along familiar ideological lines, with the winning side determined by the vote of Justice Anthony Kennedy. Women made up onethird of the nine-member court for the first time ever this year, but missing from the court’s docket was a case that could be called historic. Next year and 2013 could
look very different, with potentially divisive and consequential cases on immigration, gay marriage and health care making their way to the high court. The makeup of the court, however, is not expected to change. Chief Justice John Roberts said the court would finish its business on Monday when the justices will announce decisions in four remaining cases, including two First Amendment disputes. In one, video game makers are leading a challenge to a Califor nia law that bars the sale or rental of violent video games to children. The case was argued nearly eight months ago, when it appeared a majority of the court was inclined to strike down the law.
Chaves County Crime Stoppers is seeking information about two burglaries that occurred in the same neighborhood fewer than 10 days apart. On Monday, June 6, burglars entered a home in the 2300 block of Prairie Avenue between 8 a.m. and 10:15 a.m. The victim reported a .22 caliber revolver, a Yamaha acoustic guitar and an unspecified amount of jewelry were taken. In the second incident on June 15, the victim left the residence in the 2300 block of North Mesa Avenue for two hours. When she
returned, she discovered the front door had been kicked in and numerous items were missing. Among the items listed were three DVD players, three pair of DC shoes, five Wii games, three 32-inch color televisions, three DVD cases containing 500 movies, 22 sets of new clothes, an HP laptop, an RCA stereo, an iPod Nano, an MP3 player and an Xbox. The estimated value of missing items was over $20,000. Crime Stoppers Board member Richard Lucero said the homes were within a block of each other, and in each incident the occu-
The other case involves a campaign finance law in Arizona that rewards candidates who accept public funds with additional cash when privately funded rivals and independent groups exceed certain spending thresholds. Also Monday, the justices are expected to decide whether to hear several important cases next term. They include: •whether police need a search warrant before they place a global positioning device on a car to track a suspect’s movements. •a challenge to the constitutionality of the Federal Communications Commission regulation of indecency on television. •suits against defense contractors over claims of abuse at the Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq. •yet another businessbacked challenge to classaction suits in state courts. Justice Antonin Scalia was the author of the majority opinion in both class-action cases, WalMart v. Dukes and AT&T v. Concepcion. The Wal-Mart decision blocked a sex discrimination suit on behalf of up to 1.6 million female employees and made it harder to mount large-scale claims against big companies in federal court. The AT&T decision endorsed the use of provisions that are common in consumer contracts for cellphones, credit cards and other goods and services in which the customer
Roswell Daily Record
waives the right to sue. Scalia’s opinion said those provisions were valid, even in the face of state laws that protect the availability of class actions. Civil rights, consumer groups and plaintif fs’ lawyers like class actions because by pooling often individually modest claims into a case with a lot of money at stake, they provide a way to hold businesses accountable. Those groups say that individuals are not going to file suit, and would never find a willing lawyer, over the $30 at issue in the customer complaint that led to the AT&T decision. Erwin Chemerinsky, dean of the law school at the University of California at Irvine and a liberal critic of the court, faulted the majority for “ignoring the human consequences of its decisions.” The rulings in those cases provided new fodder for complaints that the Roberts court has a probusiness tilt. A frequent critic, Senate Judiciary Committee chair man Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., plans a hearing this coming week about recent decisions’ effect on individuals’ access to the courts and on corporate behavior. Robin Conrad, the head of the legal arm of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, dismissed the notion of a pro-business court as “a silly myth” that was undercut by a record of as many victories as losses in cases
of interest to the Chamber of Commerce. Yet Conrad acknowledged that the group won the three cases — the classaction disputes and a successful effort to block a climate change suit by six states — that were “easily the most important business cases of the term.” Perhaps the most impassioned case of the ter m involved the fight by the father of a dead Marine to hold accountable the protesters who picketed his son’s funeral with anti-gay and other highly charged signs. By an 8-1 vote, the court said the grieving father’s pain must yield to First Amendment protections for free speech. In other important cases, the court: •Limited challenges to government programs that use tax breaks to direct money to religious activities, a 5-4 ruling in favor of an Arizona tuition tax credit. •Held that states have at least some role to play in the immigration arena, upholding by a 5-4 vote another Arizona law penalizing employers for hiring illegal immigrants. •Unanimously ruled that former Attorney General John Ashcroft cannot be held personally liable for the arrest of an American Muslim suspected of ties to terrorism under a law aimed at ensuring the presence of witnesses at trials. •Agreed, by a 5-4 vote, with a lower court that
overcrowding at California prisons has led to inadequate inmate health care that is “cruel and unusual” under the Eighth Amendment and requires a significant cut in the prison population. The prison ruling was one of only a few in which Kennedy sided with the liberals in the split decisions. “The court is still very solidly conservative,” said Supreme Court advocate Thomas Goldstein, who also publishes Scotusblog. President Barack Obama’s two appointees, Justices Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan, almost always voted with the other two liberals, Justices Stephen Breyer and Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Kagan joined the court in August and had to sit out more than one-third of the court’s cases in her first term because of her prior job as Obama’s solicitor general. Most of those cases were early on, and her absence rarely affected the outcome. With the two new justices at either end of the bench, and Ginsburg close to the center, the court had three women serving together for the first time. That seems unlikely to change for at least a year or two. If Ginsburg is true to her word, she will be on the court until at least 2015. She turns 82 that year and has said she would like to emulate Justice Louis Brandeis, who retired at age 82.

CARLSBAD (AP) — A Mexican citizen has been sentenced to life in prison in connection with the 2009 killing of a Carlsbad man. Jurors on Friday found 38-year -old Fer nando Lopez guilty of murder in the first degree. He was
consequently sentenced to life in prison by 5th Judicial Court Judge Thomas A. Rutledge. Authorities say the body of Rodolfo Murillo was found on the side of the Hobbs Highway on July 5, 2009, with gunshot wounds to the chest
and head. The Current Argus reports that Lopez confir med he was the one who shot the 38-year-old Murillo. Lopez returned to Mexico after the killing, but later turned himself in to police.

increases far more Draconian than if default were avoided. The dire war nings appear to be falling on unconvinced ears, at least so far. Call it doomsday fatigue. In recent times, Americans heard that things were going to go haywire with the turn of the millennium, and they did not. They were primed for post-Sept. 11 terrorist plots that did not unfold. They’ve seen Congress, a lumbering body that gets fleet of foot at the last minute, come to the brink time after time, only to pull something out of its hat. Recently, a partial government shutdown was averted in that manner. Republican leaders are insisting on huge spending cuts as a condition for raising the debt limit. This position finds solid support from Republicans in the poll and backing from a plurality of independents. President Barack Obama is pushing for increased tax revenue to be part of the deal, and that insistence led House

Republican leader Eric Cantor of Virginia to walk out of the negotiations this past week. About half of Democrats in the poll said the debt limit should be raised regardless of whether it’s paired with a deal to cut spending. The survey found no significant differences by education, age, income, or even by party, in perceptions of whether a crisis is likely if the limit is not increased. There was widespread dissatisfaction with how Obama is dealing with the deficit — a new high of 63 percent disapproval on that subject — and an even harsher judgment of how both parties in Congress are doing on the issue. A deal would permit the gover nment to resume borrowing more than $100 billion a month to pay its bills. Paradoxically — or “perversely,” as Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke put it — the absence of a deal would not stop the nation’s debt from climbing. Ber nanke said the stain on U.S. creditworthiness would drive up deficits simply by saddling the country with higher interest rates on borrowing.

She became emotional when she spoke of her granddaughter, Victoria Velasquez, who recently passed away.

Orozco emphasized the importance of knowing history, and of going beyond what is typically taught in high school and college history courses. She said that, as an example, many young people are unaware of the history of segregation in New Mexico. Orozco mentioned Roswell’s neighborhood, Chihuahuita, which she said was originally “meant to be a separate place for people of Mexican descent.” Making history accessible and interesting to younger generations, Orozco said, is key to overcoming the past. She
said the Hispano Chamber of Commerce could play a role in making this happen. “If the Hispano Chamber is really about business, then it’s time ... to make history part of our business, so that it’s not unfinished business,” Orozco said.

Romney, Bachmann lead in 2012 Iowa caucus poll DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — A new Iowa Poll shows national Republican presidential frontrunner Mitt Romney and tea party favorite Michele Bachmann leading among the state’s likely GOP caucus-goers. The poll conducted for The Des Moines Register shows Romney, the former Massachusetts governor, with support from 23 percent in Iowa. Bachmann, the Minnesota representative who plans to launch her campaign in Iowa on Monday, has support from 22 percent. Romney was the No. 2 finisher in the caucuses in his bid for the 2008 GOP nomination. Bachmann is a three-ter m congresswoman and newer face in the 2012 White House mix. The results are based on telephone interviews with 400 likely Republican Iowa caucus-goers from June 19 to 22. It has a margin of error of plus or minus 4.9 percentage points. Romney has said he plans to run a scaled-
down Iowa campaign, compared to the all-out, $10-million ef fort he waged for the 2008 caucuses. Tim Pawlenty has been the most aggressive about campaigning in Iowa, having lined up top Iowa and national consultants, been a frequent visitor to the state and ran the 2012 campaign’s first Republican candidate television advertisements last week. However, only 6 percent of Iowa Republicans expected to attend the 2012 caucuses prefer the former Minnesota governor as their choice, according to the poll. For mer U.S. House Speaker Newt Gingrich, whose campaign has struggled since widespread staff departures this month, has support from 7 percent, the same as Texas Representative Ron Paul. Former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum has 4 percent, followed by for mer Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman, who has said he will not campaign in Iowa, with 2 percent.

New Mexicans hoodwinked by the Rail Runner SANTA FE — It is now confirmed. New Mexicans were hoodwinked by the Rail Runner. During former Gov. Bill Richardson’s 2003 honeymoon with the Legislature and the people of New Mexico, we were told the Rail Runner was an important economic development tool for all New Mexico. Richardson’s big promise to New Mexicans was that he could use his worldwide contacts and negotiating skills to lead our state into a vibrant economy. Lawmakers gave him everything he requested — a spaceport, tax cuts to attract high-paid corporation execs, additional education funding to produce a better workforce and lots of infrastructure for highways and a railroad. The railroad not only was going to produce economic development, it would boost tourism, improve the environment, save road building expense and increase safety. Somehow I never could under-
INSIDE THE CAPITOL
stand how the train was going to help economic development from Belen to Santa Fe, much less in Hobbs and Farmington. But $385 million was appropriated and the project was completed in record time for this part of New Mexico. But now the Rail Runner is running into debt. And the solution is to discontinue weekend runs in about a month. It isn’t that the weekend runs aren’t increasing in ridership, at least to Santa Fe. And it isn’t that there is much of anybody on the weekday trains except during rush hours. The reason weekend runs are
Roswell Daily Record
being discontinued, according to the Rio Metro Transit Board, is that the Rail Runner was conceived from the beginning as a commuter train to get state employees to work. So why weren’t New Mexico taxpayers told that from the beginning? If we were told it was for getting state employees to and from work, there would have been calls to take it out of their paychecks. And it’s not as though state employees don’t have complaints. It isn’t a high speed train. There are many stops. Even at cruising speed, riders watch cars speeding past on nearby I-25. And then there are breakdowns, accidents and dead cows that bring it to lengthy stops. State employees are docked for being late. A better solution would have been to eliminate mid-day runs. Gov. Susana Martinez says she sees the Rail Runner many times when “there isn’t a single human being in it.” But the Metro Board
said it would have been counter to the original intent that it be a commuter train. And talk about atrocious timing. The weekend cancellations will occur at the beginning of major tourism events such as Indian Market, Santa Fe Fiesta, and the New Mexico Wine Festival in Bernalillo. Maybe the biggest “duh” is the beginning of an already scheduled discount ticket offering for infrequent riders. The idea of providing incentives for weekend riders is a good one. Gov. Martinez supports it. Incentives would be especially good for Sundays when riders are fewer. The state’s free Sunday admission for New Mexico residents to its seven Santa Fe museums should be publicized more. But the Metro Board may not be very interested in getting people out of Albuquerque to spend their money elsewhere. But then there
is always the possibility people outside of Albuquerque would like to ride into town to shop there. The Rio Metro Transit Board would be wise to reconsider its hasty surprise decision. The stated purpose of the June 17 meeting was to juggle the weekday schedule and stops to save money. Instead, on a 6-5 vote it decided on a one-dimensional service. Many train riders say they would be willing to pay a higher fare to keep the service going. As long as the unwise decision was made to spend $385 million on the infrastructure, we might as well keep it going if it can break even. That’s good for a transit system. A little creative thinking could do the job. Santa Fe already has appropriated funds to establish a visitor center at its railyard.

Europe Crushing NATO
Planning to step down at the end of this month, Defense Secretary Robert Gates feels he can speak freely, and speak freely he did in a valedictory address to NATO at alliance headquarters in Brussels. Speaking to an audience of European military officers, government officials and diplomats, Gates said that, barring stepped-up support from member nations, NATO faced a “dim, if not dismal” future. “If current trends in the decline of European defense capabilities are not halted and reversed, future U.S. political leaders — those for whom the Cold War was not the formative experience that it was for me — may not consider the return on America’s investment worth the cost,” he warned. The U.S. is now bearing 75 percent of that cost, and Gates blasted those Europeans who are “willing and eager for American taxpayers to assume the growing security burden left by reductions in European defense budgets.” The Guardian newspaper said, “The speech was laced with exasperation and contempt for European defense spending cuts, inefficiencies and botched planning.” The Associated Press described Gates’ words as “unusually harsh and unvarnished.” To which we say, hurray for Robert Gates. NATO is too important an alliance to let collapse from neglect and indifference. NATO was formed after World War II as a defensive alliance against any attempt by the Soviet Union to move into Western Europe, and by that standard it was a success. Counterintuitively, NATO, which had 16 members when the Iron Curtain fell, now has 28. The new members are largely former Soviet-bloc countries that viewed membership as a bulwark against renewed Russian expansionism and a symbol of their new Western European orientation, and because of NATO’s strict membership standards — including rule of law and civilian control of the military — a way of locking into place their new democratic institutions. For those reasons alone, the alliance is worth preserving, but those geopolitical benefits of NATO membership perhaps obscure its essential purpose — to fight wars. Gates noted that the 28 nations voted unanimously for the Libyan operation, but that less than one-half are participating in the operation and less than one-third are participating in strike missions. Some of those on the sidelines would be willing, but lack the military capacity to do so. The air campaign against Moammar Gadhafi was supposed to have a capacity of 300 sorties a day, but they can only mount 150. Gates said, “The mightiest military alliance in history is only 11 weeks into an operation against a poorly armed regime in a sparsely populated country. Yet many allies are beginning to run short of munitions, requiring the U.S., once more, to make up the difference.” One hopes that the Europeans listened to Gates. Guest Editorial The New Bern Sun Journal DEAR DR. GOTT: I am a 70-year -old woman who developed shingles on my right leg last June and am now left with neuropathy. It went from the middle of my leg all the way down to my foot and toes. I was immediately put on an antiviral and a prednisone pack, so the doctor was surprised that I developed post-herpetic neuralgia. My leg and foot are completely numb and I cannot bend the right foot upward, so I wear a boot and go from a wheelchair to crutches and then to bed. It is causing excruciating pain. I have seen two neurologists, who both ordered MRIs of my spine, an EMG and
Big Media makes a suicide compact Is there a profit-making business — other than TV networks and The New York Times — that so disrespects its audience it works overtime to offend them? What other business metaphorically flips the bird to those who don’t subscribe to their social, cultural and political worldview? That is precisely what big media does to a large number of potential viewers and subscribers. Three recent examples: 1) The inexplicable editing of the Pledge of Allegiance during the opening of last Sunday’s U.S. Open on NBC; 2) the naming of ultra-liberal Norah O’Donnell

of MSNBC as CBS News’ new chief White House correspondent, in time for the 2012 election; and 3) last Sunday’s New York Times, which appeared to be a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Washington Blade, a leading newspaper for the LGBT community. Let’s take them one at a

nerve conduction tests. Both dismissed me, saying there is nothing more they can do for me. The last neurologist suggested I see a pain management doctor.

soon as I can get out of some of this pain, I can try a physical therapist to help me walk with this dropped foot. I am currently taking 300 mg Neurontin four times a day, 25 mg Elavil twice a day, 40 mg OxyContin twice a day, and 150 mg Oxcarbazepine twice a day. One of these is causing me to have some involuntary movements. Do you have any thoughts on this? I read your column daily and was hoping that you would have some input on my condition. I went from feeling fine to waking up one day and having my whole life turned around. The first neurologist I saw told me that I would

What are his/her ideological and religious beliefs? What editor or manager decided it was OK to air the edited Pledge of Allegiance? Didn’t anyone at NBC, which later apologized on air to “those of you who were offended by it,” anticipate the reaction? Will heads roll? Probably not. Compare this to comedian Tracy Morgan’s crude remarks about gay people in a stand-up act not aired on NBC. His col-

The presentation was made at a nurses conference at Care Enterprises in Anaheim, Calif. Smith said, “Health means emotional and social well being, as well as physical things like food, shelter and safety. We must always remember that our residents are ‘real people’ with ‘real needs’ and ‘real feelings.’ Just because we grow older doesn’t mean we no longer have needs or desires.

Change in system equals change in results Roswell Daily Record
Insanity has been defined as “doing the same thing over and over and expecting dif fer ent results.” This quote has been attributed to several famous people including Albert Einstein and Ben Franklin. It amazes me how often we don’t get this concept. We think if we stay the same way long enough, the world around us will change for the better. Then we get frustrated when it does not. We fail to recognize that the same actions equal the same results. My wife and I attend a conference called “Catalyst” each year in April and October. A few years back, Lead Pastor Andy Stanley of North Point Community Church, located just north of Atlanta, Ga., gave a talk on “systems.” He titled his talk, “Liberating Your Organization.” Besides experiencing it live, I have listened to this message several times. Pastor Stanley’s core message is that systems create behaviors. Whether it is in our personal life, at work, or in organizations that we belong to, each of us have systems in place to make things happen. O f t en ti mes t he s y s t em s i n place work ... oftentimes the systems in place are broken. What happens is that we create a system that leads to a certain result. In time the system gets a result that we don’t want, yet we keep using the same syst e m a n d t he n g e t f r us t r at e d when the system doesn’t get a different result. For example, if we expect one of our children to

In this example, by the time the child takes out the trash, both the parent and the child are very frustrated. This system c ou l d e ve n i n v o lv e y el li ng between parent and child each time the trash is to be taken out. It is clearly a broken system. This system works to the extent it results in the trash being taken out, but it uses too much energy in the process and lowers the quality of life for both the parent and the child. If the parent tells the child that if he doesn’t take the trash out by seven o’clock each Mond ay ev en i n g , t h e pa r en t wil l take it out himself and there will be no allowance paid, then at 7 :1 0 on M on d ay e ven in g, rather than reminding the child, t h e p ar e nt si m p ly t a ke s t he trash out himself and the child does not get any allowance.

Reading this brought me as close as I have ever come to canceling my subscription, but I decided against it. I have to know what the culturally depraved are thinking. Inserted in the newspaper was a “Dear Reader” letter from outgoing Executive Editor Bill Keller and Editorial Page Editor Andrew Rosenthal. It announced “new features and a new way of presenting our finest analytical and opinion writing.” It may be a “new way,” but the content will remain the same and come from the same ideological perspective. At none of the big networks or at The New York Times is there a recognized conservative or traditional values commentator. It is why these entities are losing readers and viewers, though they don’t seem to care. Their ideology trumps their business sense. Meanwhile, the rise of alternative media makes them increasingly irrelevant. (Write to Cal Thomas at: Tribune Media Services, 2225 Kenmore Ave., Suite 114, Buffalo, N.Y. 14207.

important things, O’Donnell intimated there might be racist overtones because “it suggests that the president is an athlete and some people may suggest, you know, because all black people are good athletes.” All black people? Isn’t that racist? Some people may suggest? That’s a not-so-clever way journalists have of inserting their own opinions into a story or line of questioning. For many more examples of O’Donnell’s liberalism, visit newsbusters.org and search Norah O’Donnell. It does not appear likely O’Donnell will put her views on hold while reporting on the president’s policies and his re-election campaign. Last Sunday’s New York Times (Father’s Day) engaged in blatant cheerleading for the gay rights agenda. It began with a front-page story titled “For President, Gay Marriage Views Evolve.” You know where his “evolution” is headed. The president wants and needs money from that lobbying group. The cover of The New York Times Magazine featured “A Good Life in the Closet? Challenging the Orthodoxy of Coming Out.” And then, just in case readers were still unclear about the Times’ editorial position on the issue, three full pages in the New York section were
parent has decided to change the system. Changing the syst e m avoi ds a f ru st r at i ng exchange each Monday evening, it also teaches the child self-discipline and to be responsible. An example in the workplace is that if a weekly meeting is to start at 8 a.m. and half those who attend don’t show up until after 8 and the meeting regularly begins at 8:15, the employer should not be upset at those who arrive late. Basically, the employer is r ewar ding those who come late by not starting the meeting until they get there. Whether the employer intended to train his team or not, he has trained them that there are no consequences to coming late and those who come on time are pe na liz ed by wa st in g 10 -15 minutes of their life. Rather than getting mad at the late arrivers each week, the employer should change the system. Pastor Stanley states that he figures 80 percent of the time when a leader gets frustrated, it is the system that causes the anger, not the employee. We create or maintain systems that cause behaviors that we don’t care for and then we get angry at the individuals who follow the system. In other words, the solution is not to get angry at the employee, but to simply change the system. Don’t fire the employee, change the system. If the system is changed, the individual becomes trained to behave in a more favorable manner. A core concept of the talk is

that what is rewarded is repeate d. It d oe sn ’ t m at t er i f y ou reward good or bad behavior, if the behavior is rewarded, it will occur again.

Tasks for Obama
Dear Editor: Instead of enabling businesses to create jobs and paying off our debt, the president mocks those who want to secure our borders. He quit building the fence and believes, like Carlos Santana and Democrats who slander citizens who disagree with them, that “Unemployed black, Hispanic and white Americans, who want jobs held by illegal aliens, are as racist as those who turned the hoses and dogs on Martin Luther King Jr. and civil rights protesters in the 1960s.” Why not let illegal aliens self-deport by making their bosses verify they’re here unlawfully? The Supreme Court not only ruled states can, but said states can also take away the licenses from businesses which hire illegal immigrants. Senate Democrats haven’t proposed a budget in two years, and the president shirked his duty to put forth a plan to save Medicare. When Republicans did, Democrats ripped the GOP as throwing grandma off a cliff. Keeping Medicare, as is, is their re-election mantra, so shouldn’t Democrats tell us how they’ll keep it from going broke? The lapdog press won’t hound them for an answer as surely as Matt Lauer would run over Andrea Mitchell to fetch Obama’s slippers. Doesn’t it make you wonder why our founders made the press our watchdog? The president’s 2012 budget didn’t get one vote because it raised spending by $1.3 trillion. He wants to increase the debt ceiling by $2.4 trillion, and Republicans say no. Would you raise the ceiling if Obama won’t bend the debt curve down and refuses to endorse a Balanced Budget Amendment, so we’ll never again face bankruptcy? Will his party let our country default rather than downsize their welfare state? We pay into Medicare and get mad when it’s messed with. Didn’t Democrats rob $500 billion from it to buy insurance for freeloaders, including illegal immigrants? Doesn’t Obamacare cut your doctor’s fees? If your doctor fights insurance companies to get you the care you need, what chance will he have when he goes against the government? Will the business you work for be forced to drop your insurance? The effects of food and gas prices on inflation were eliminated after the peanut farmer was booted from office, so it’s hard to tell if stagflation (double digit unemployment and inflation) is here. This is known: we have less disposable income, our homes are worth less and the price of gas has doubled since Obama took office. The president blames oil companies for high gas prices, then reluctantly agrees to allow more drilling in the Gulf of Mexico where his moratorium caused the loss of 19,000 jobs and 250,000 barrels of oil a day. His permission isn’t enough. Obama has to address the nation. He’s to tell us that he’ll increase jobs, oil and revenue by expanding drilling everywhere. He’s to say he’ll no longer stand with illegal workers and outlaw businesses that hire them because he’ll side with unemployed Americans and law-abiding businesses by using E-Verify nationwide. Lastly, he’s to explain his plan to keep our country’s creditworthiness from being downgraded. Our job is to call the president, senators and representative (thank Steve Pearce) and respectfully tell them you want these things accomplished by the Fourth of July. Like the press birddogs Weiner’s weenie, call every day, and if the holiday passes without action, call for their resignations. They’ll hear you. Obama heard when you complained about the price of gas. That’s why he agreed to resume drilling in the Gulf. Respectfully, your knuckle-dragging, Bible-banging, flag-waving neighbor, Ralph Rivera Roswell

‘Young Earth’ theory refuted
Dear Editor: The June 19 Daily Record carried a letter purporting to argue that the Earth is only a few thousand years old. The arguments given are pseudo-science easily refuted. One example should suffice to show how easily. The letter writer remarked that since radioactive Carbon-14 decays with a halflife of about 5,700 years, all traces of it should long since have disappeared if the Earth is much more than 10,000 years old. This argument completely ignores the crucial fact that Carbon-14 (which decays into Nitrogen-14) is continually replenished in the atmosphere when nitrogen atoms (the most plentiful element in the atmosphere) are bombarded by cosmic rays. The resulting new Carbon-14 continually enters the food chain (along with the more abundant Carbon-12) by way of photosynthesis, becoming part of the biochemistry of living plants and animals and continuing to decay, altering the C-14 to C-12 ratio in measurable ways. The error here is to assume that the Earth is a closed system unaffected by the introduction of new energy such as that which cosmic rays supply. (This is the same error people make when trying to argue that thermodynamic laws render evolution impossible, a failure to recognize non-closed systems as non-closed.) The “Young Earth” idea is insupportable in many other ways. For example, if the world were that young, light from other galaxies (or even from the center of our own galaxy) would not have had time to reach us yet. But it has reached us. It is important to employ only real science in discussing scientific matters. Sincerely, Donald R. Burleson, Ph.D. Roswell
Dear Editor: The Republicans adamantly oppose raising the national debt ceiling or raising taxes on the super rich. If the tax rate on the top 1 percent of the population were returned to the level it was before the Bushes lowered it in 2003 we would have no problems now. It was promised that if taxes were lowered the economy would take off. Well it did, but not up as was promised. John Ford Roswell
Fireworks pose threat
Dear Editor: The decision to allow unrestricted, uncontrolled fireworks use in the city is, to say the least, appalling! Whatever happened to the common sense adage “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure”? A drought, the likes of which hasn’t been seen in many a year, fires starting at the drop of a hat, (or spark), all around the state, a few, (thankfully small so far), blazes here, and the fire bureaucrats aren’t concerned. Granted that some ordinances are unenforceable due to personnel requirements and increased costs; but it might behoove the powers that be to consider what the cost in personnel, money, damage claims and possibly lives could be to fight one, just one, large fireworks-caused blaze and

check the scales they use to weigh these decisions again. Hopefully nothing consequential will happen, which one would assume is how this irresponsible decision was made; but if it does, those who made made it and those who approved it should be held fully accountable by the injured parties, both legally and morally, and the elected city officials who remained silent should be remembered next March when the polls open.

What happens after death
Dear Editor: I see the religion debate is even better than the evolution debate. The John Grogan letter (May 2, 2011) was just excellent. And I see that Pastor Bobby Barnett (May 17, 2011) has entered the melee coming to the aid of Pastor Parsons. But what’s with all the “draweth nigh” talk? Does he think that by using old English words they’ll sound more ominous of prophetic? I knew Parson and Barnett would quickly resort to more threats. “Repent, repent, God will judge you.” People are pretty fed up. I think that was the whole point of Jennings’ letter. You just assumed he did not believe in heaven or hell. He was saying that the Catholic Church, which took the pagan teaching of a burning nether world and adopted it as “Christian” has said they were wrong. Do you grasp that? It’s like someone giving you a Rolex watch and then later he tells you it’s a fake. It doesn’t work. Why wouldn’t you believe him? I will repeat: The people that you took the teaching of hellfire from are saying they were wrong. People do not burn in hell. Your church did not come up with this teaching, do you understand that? “Gehenna” was a symbol used by Jesus to describe eternal destruction. Not eternal torment. Hell was known to all in his day as mankind’s common grave. Some Bibles mistakenly translated “Gehenna” as hell and people thought that the dead were being consciously burned alive. This was a mistake. The spirit world definitely does not have things like flesh and blood and fire. The mention of fire was a symbol of destruction. And you’re taking a risk talking about “false prophets.” If you teach anything opposite of what the Bible says, you become the false prophet. Ezekiel 18:4 says the soul dies. I know that if I ask Parsons and Barnet they will say the soul absolutely does not die. So who should I believe? The reason they say the soul does not die is because you need an immortal soul to burn forever in hell. But what does the Bible say? It always describes the soul as the entire living person and people die and are said to be unconscious or asleep, just as Jesus’ friend Lazarus was for four days. Jesus told his disciples that after his death, he would be resurrected to heaven and that his father would choose some of his followers to also go to heaven. When Paul described this he said that those going to heaven would have to die and leave behind their fleshly bodies in the grave upon their resurrection during the “Lord’s Day” when they would be given a spirit body. This body would be different and special because it would be “immortal.” Yes, only those people resurrected to heaven are given the gift of immortality. Not even the angels have this gift, because
as we know, they can be destroyed, as Satan and the demons will be in the future. So at one point, Jesus was the only person who had been resurrected from Earth to heaven. As he put it, “no man has ascended into heaven, but he that descended from heaven, the son of man.” So how was he described? The text of 1 Timothy 6:15, 16 says he is the “King of those who rule as kings and Lord of those who rule as lords, the one ALONE having immortality, who dwells in the unapproachable light whom not one of men has seen or can see.” So I hope you can understand that when you were told that all souls were immortal, it was not the truth. Only those who die and are resurrected to heaven are given the gift of immortal spirit life. And at one point, only Jesus had this gift. Remember, don’t confuse “everlasting life” with “immortality” they do not mean the same thing. Kenneth Morris Roswell
Misconceptions about Bible
Dear Editor: Once again Dan Parsons has said some things that have to be corrected. First of all he says “to my understanding Jesus didn’t say ‘you are no part of this world.” How about John 15:19 “If you were part of the world, the world would be fond of what is its own. Now because you are no part of the world ... the world hates you.” Or John 17:16 “They are no part of the world, just as I am no part of the world.” So definitely, Christians would be separate from the world and they would be hated. You can see an example of this when the Christian Congregation, unlike the false Christians, refused to help Hitler and were thrown into the concentration camps with the Jews because they would not compromise. Next he mentions that Jesus asked his apostles if they had swords. Jesus did this so he could teach them an important lesson when Peter tried to use it to defend Jesus a short while later. Although Christians have weapons available, they are never to be used against another human. Parsons even mentions this, “put your sword back in its place.” So what is his point? And finally, he mentions the principle in Romans about being in subjection to the governing authorities. He asks “What is a believer to do? Fight in a war if our country says to or defy our government and sin against God?” Is he kidding? Does he really think the command to obey the superior authorities is absolute? He is sadly, sadly mistaken. Christians are commanded to obey man’s laws except when they conflict with God’s laws. We know this because when the early Christians were ordered to stop preaching they disobeyed and said in Acts 5:29, “We must obey God as ruler rather than men.” Can you imagine if the government passed a law banning the ownership of Bibles? What if the government banned religion or drafted you into the military to kill in warfare? All of these conflict with God’s laws and Christians would not obey. Parsons should change his column to “Lessons on how to take scriptures out of context.” Please, Pastor Parsons, we see that you love hellfire, you want the church to support you and you want people to go kill in war. We get it, we all get it. Can you please just stop writing in trying to convince us that the Bible supports these views? Just bow out and do what you want already. But spare us the weekly sermon.

I don’t think I can emphasize strongly enough the need for safety during this year’s Fourth of July celebration! This area of New Mexico is now setting records for consecutive days of more than 100 degrees. Everything is dry, dry, dry! And, to my knowledge, we cannot plan on any rainfall. Arghhhhhhh!
July 4th will be here in one week. You may be planning an evening sitting out on the lawn with your family and neighbors, having a BBQ, eating snacks, making smores and watching beautiful fireworks bursting in the night sky. July 4th celebrations can be a lot of fun, but you
must be mindful of your safety and the safety of others. Fireworks can be very dangerous and should only be handled by responsible people or trained professionals. Every year there are thousands of injuries and usually more than half of these are children ages 16 years old and under.
Strongly consider taking your family to public fireworks displays. Dexter will have a great display at Lake Van on Sunday, July 3. The Mike Satter field Fireworks Memorial Extravaganza will once again be held at the Cielo Grande Park on the Fourth. And undoubtedly there will be several other celebrations around the
town. Watch the Roswell Daily Record for more information. Here are some fireworks safety tips. •Fireworks are prohibited out in the county, in parks, and in recreational areas. This is true in all of New Mexico. •Call 911 immediately if a fire develops, even if you are trying to put out the fire yourself. •Let responsible adults
Leadership Roswell now taking applications The Chamber of Commerce’s Leadership Roswell Program is currently taking applications for the 2011-2012 class. The class runs nine months and meets one Friday each month. The program gives participants the opportunity to learn through workshops, panel discussions and planning committees. The primary mission of the 28-year -old program is two-fold: First, the group works with leadership training. The classes, which average 25-30 people, are given workshops on leadership concepts like dealing with critical people, decision making, personality types, writing personal mission statements and dealing with stress. The class learns
about the area, through specifically days. Rick Kraft, a local attorney, is the volunteer executive director for the Leadership Roswell Program along with Program Coordinator Kristen Salyards. “I guess I have a belief that each individual in the community has potential,” Kraft said. “We get busy in what we do for a living that we need to really go through and ask ourselves ‘What am I all about?’” Classes will include workshops on the city of Roswell and Chaves County; law enforcement; economic development, human services and healthcare; education; and manufacturing, youth issues, and agribusiness.

Have someone take you to the emergency room immediately! •Be careful with pets and far m animals. Many of them are terrified by the sound and light. Consider moving the animals away or keeping them inside. •Safety glasses are recommended for those individuals lighting the fireworks and those individuals in close proximity to the fireworks. •Never throw or point fireworks at other people.
•Have an accessible fire extinguisher, water supply, hose, or bucket of water nearby for emergencies. During any fireworks shoot, there should always be one individual assigned as the fireman, whose sole job is to be alert and at the ready with a water source. •Soak all fireworks in a bucket of water before throwing them in the trash can.

NA T I O N A L BRIEFS NICK CHARLES DIES AT 64
ATLANTA (AP) — Nick Charles, a former taxi driver who became CNN’s first sports anchor, died Saturday after a two-year struggle with bladder cancer, the cable network reported. He died peacefully at his New Mexico home, his wife Cory told the network. He was 64. Nicholas Charles Nickeas grew up in Chicago, working late-night jobs in high school to help his family, according to CNN. He eventually went to college to study communications and drove a taxi to help pay his tuition. He was still driving taxis in 1970 when he landed his first gig with WICS in Springfield, Ill. That’s when he adopted the name Nick Charles at the urging of his news director, the network said. Charles later left Springfield to work at local stations in Baltimore and Washington and then began at Atlanta-based CNN on the network’s first day in 1980. He made his name before a national audience teaming with Fred Hickman for almost 20 years on “Sports Tonight,” a daily highlight show that battled with ESPN for viewers. Charles became such a popular TV personality that Topps put his face on a trading card, CNN reported. “We just clicked from the very beginning,” Hickman told CNN in an interview. “In television, you always have personality conflicts. Nick and I never had one. Nick and I have always had a tremendous relationship.” In an interview in March, he told the network his message was to “never give up on life.” “People won’t remember who you are or what you said. It’s really about: Are you going to be remembered as a good person?” he said. “That’s victory to me. That’s success.”
SPORTS Roswell Daily Record
WIMBLEDON, England (AP) — Serena Williams has been known to say she isn’t satisfied with this or that aspect of her game, even after easily winning a match, say, 6-3, 62. So it was somehow refreshing to hear Williams actually praise herself after a victory by that very score over 26th-seeded Maria Kirilenko at Wimbledon on Saturday. Yes, only five matches since returning to the tour after nearly a full year off because of a series of health scares, Williams produced a performance worthy of the 13-time Grand Slam champion that she is. And then Williams talked the talk of someone finally ready to concede that British bookmakers might very well have been right to make her the pre-tournament favorite. Asked whether she was surprised by the odds, the seventh-seeded American smiled widely and said: “I wouldn’t bet against me.” After hitting 10 aces and compiling a 32-9 edge in winners against Kirilenko, Williams termed the showing her “best I’ve played since I came back.” “I was a little more consistent, and I played my game more,” said Williams, trying to become the first woman since Steffi Graf in 1991-93 to win three consecutive Wimbledon titles. “Wasn’t as tight and nervous and uptight. I was able to relax more today.” She was part of a parade of past champions who breezed into the
fourth round Saturday, joined by Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Maria Sharapova, who all were straight-set winners, too. Top-seeded Caroline Wozniacki, seeking her first Grand Slam title, and two-time Australian Open champion Novak Djokovic, who is now 44-1 in 2011, also moved on. There were two upsets of some significance. Two-time French Open finalist Robin Soderling, who was seeded fifth, was dealing with stomach problems and bowed out meekly against 158th-ranked qualifier Bernard Tomic of Australia 6-1, 6-4, 7-5. Tomic is the first 18-year-old to reach the men’s fourth round at Wimbledon since Michael Chang and Goran Ivanisevic in 1990. “I was very calm, but inside I was bursting. I tried not to show it to him. He was getting a bit frustrated,” Tomic said. “The way I’ve been playing is really good. If I can keep it up like this, who knows?” No. 9 Gael Monfils lost to 93rdranked qualifier Lukasz Kubot of Poland 6-3, 3-6, 6-3, 6-3. Kubot is the first man from Poland to make it this far at Wimbledon since Wojtek Fibak in 1981. Wimbledon is the only Grand Slam tennis tournament that schedules a day off on the middle Sunday — and the only one that puts all 16 men’s and women’s fourth-round

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — No one argues that the Southeastern Conference is the class of college baseball this year. Now it’s time to find out who truly is best in the league, and nation, when defending champion South Carolina and Florida meet in the College World Series finals starting Monday. The Gamecocks (53-14) and Gators (53-17) shared the SEC Eastern Division title with a Vanderbilt team that also made it to the CWS’ final four. Florida won the conference tour nament, beating Vanderbilt, and South Carolina owns a record 14 consecutive NCAA tournament victories. South Carolina won two of three games against Florida in the regular season, but that was all the way back in March. Their finals matchup marks the first time since 1998 that two teams from the same conference will square off for the championship. “We know it’s not easy. We know there’s a long way to go in this thing,” Gators coach Kevin O’Sullivan said. “But you have to get there. So we’re excited for playing for the national championship but we’re going to be business as usual for the next couple days.”
O’Sullivan hasn’t announced a starting pitcher for Game 1. Sophomore Hudson Randall (11-3) and freshman Karsten Whitson (8-0) are available. Randall earned the win in the Gators’ CWS opener against Texas on June 18, and Whitson (8-0) started against Vanderbilt on June 20. Gamecocks coach Ray Tanner said he was leaning toward starting freshman Forrest Koumas (6-1), who last pitched June 5 in regionals. South Carolina’s biggest pitching concern is the availability of closer Matt Price, who threw 90 pitches and got out of three basesloaded situations in a season-long 5 2⁄3 innings in Friday’s 3-2, 13-inning win over Virginia. “What are the chances of rain on Monday,” Tanner said, laughing. “We’re certainly going to be able to use two days (off), but a third might not be bad.” The forecast calls for a 40 percent chance of scattered storms on Monday.

Jacobson shoots 63 to take lead at Travelers
CROMWELL, Conn. (AP) — amateur Nineteen-year -old Patrick Cantlay had trouble building on his record-setting round in the Travelers Championship. A day after shooting a courserecord 60, the lowest score ever by an amateur on the PGA Tour, the UCLA star had a 72 on Saturday, and found himself five strokes behind leader Fredrik Jacobson. The Swede had a 7under 63 on Saturday, his third consecutive bogey-free round. “I’ve been OK at keeping my composure my whole life, so I’m just drawing on past experiences and having a good time out there,” Cantlay said. “I struggled today. I got off to kind of a slow start and really never got any momentum going.” Jacobson closed with a 30-foot birdie putt on No. 18 to cap his third straight bogey-free round. The Swede opened with rounds of 65 and 66 and the 63 left him at 16 under at TPC River Highlands. Bryce Moulder, who also opened with rounds of 65 and 66, shot a 64, and sits a stroke behind Jacobson. Cantlay bogeyed the final two holes. An amateur hasn’t won a PGA Tour event since Phil Mickelson in the 1991 Northern Telecom Open in Arizona. The 36-year-old Jacobson has
three European Tour victories, but is winless on the PGA Tour. Molder also is looking for his first PGA Tour win. At 194, Jacobson was a stroke off the tournament record for 54 holes. “It obviously takes some good par putts every now and then to keep a round like that going,” he said. “It’s nothing in particular I’ve been focusing on, but it just turned out that way.” After two days of rain and drizzle, Saturday was mostly sunny. But Jacobson said the greens were still soft. That helped on 18, when he thought he had put too much pace on his birdie attempt. “I was kind of hoping it was going to hit the hole and kind of lipped a little bit past it if anything,” he said. “But I was certainly happy when it hit the hole.” Molder has made the cut in six of 17 tournaments this year, but a tie for sixth at Pebble Beach is his best finish so far this year. He had to play nine holes of his second round Saturday and finished with a 66 before starting the third round. His 210-yard second shot on the fourth hole came within a foot of the pin and got him going. He holed a 38-foot birdie putt on 17 that broke 6 feet from left. “You’re just trying to get it close, and what do you know, the hole gets in the way,” he said.
Cantlay, the low amateur last week in the U.S. Open, had a one-shot lead after a birdie at 12. But he hit his drive right and into the water on the par -5 13th, a hole he eagled twice Friday. He found the water again on 17 and hit his second shot on 18 into a greenside bunker. “I hit a couple of bad drives coming in, and it cost me,” he said. “I could have made a couple more putts, as in every round, but I’m in a good spot, and I’m looking forward to tomorrow.” Cantlay has already made it into the Golf Hall of Fame — or at least his ball and scorecard have, along with a pin from Friday’s record round. James Driscoll shot his second consecutive 64 to move into third place at 13 under. Defending champion Bubba Watson shot a 70 and fell 10 strokes behind Jacobson. “I don’t know if you’ve ever checked the record books, but no one has ever won every tournament,” he said. “I’m not making the putts. I’m not hitting good iron shots when I need them.” Jacobson is trying to become the first player since Lee Trevino in the 1974 Greater New Orleans Open to play 72 holes without a bogey. But he’d be happy just to get the win.

Fish advanced Saturday when Robin Haase retired in the fourth set, while Berdych wrapped up a rainsuspended victory over Alex Bogomolov Jr. of the United States.
“It’s lonely,” said Fish, who’s been broken only once in three matches. Djokovic trashed his racket during a 6-4, 4-6, 6-3, 6-4 victory over 2006 Australian Open finalist Marcos Baghdatis in the day’s last match on Centre Court. “Look, I’m not going to change who I am. I can work on some things, but, you know, my temper is my temper. My character is my character,” said Djokovic, whose 43-match winning streak ended with a loss to Federer in the French Open semifinals. With Baghdatis serving at 30-all while leading 4-3 in the second set, Djokovic pushed a shot long to lose the point. Standing at the baseline, he smashed his racket, hitting it once, twice, three times against the ground. As Djokovic walked
to the sideline to trade in that now-damaged piece of equipment for a fresh one, Baghdatis chuckled to himself. Chair umpire James Keothavong — brother of British player Anne Keothavong — was less amused, warning Djokovic for racket abuse. Baghdatis won the next point, too, to pull ahead 5-3, and he served out the set with an ace two games later. But Djokovic pulled through, even as he occasionally paused to clutch at his left leg. “I’m not tired physically. I just didn’t feel good today. ... My legs weren’t working. You have those days,” Djokovic said. “Luckily for me, when I needed to, I played well.” Nadal also acknowledged being slightly bothered by a

muscle problem in his right leg during a 7-6 (6), 7-6 (5), 6-0 win over Gilles Muller of Luxembourg. Nadal made a total of three unforced errors — and 30 winners — against Muller, who eliminated him in the second round in 2005. Since then, Nadal is 29-2 at the grass-court Grand Slam tournament, losing to Federer in the 2006 and 2007 finals, then winning the titles in 2008 and 2010. Nadal skipped Wimbledon in 2009 because of tendinitis in his knees; he made clear Saturday his knees are fine now. The same goes for Williams, who is ranked only 25th. A few days after winning her fourth Wimbledon title last year, she cut both her feet on glass at a restaurant. That led to two operations on her right foot; she later was hospitalized for clots in her lungs, and then to remove a pool of blood that gathered under the skin on her stomach. Understandably, she explained Saturday, she’d been playing tentatively until Saturday. “You’re always thinking, ‘I can get hurt again.’ You just kind of have to let those thoughts go or anything could happen,” Williams said. “And I wasn’t thinking that at all today. It was just a big difference.” On Monday, she’ll face 2007 runner -up Marion Bartoli. Other fourth-round women’s matches include Williams’ older sister Venus vs. No. 32 Tsvetana Pironkova, who upset the five-time Wimbledon champion a year ago; Wozniacki vs. No. 24 Dominika Cibulkova; and Sharapova vs. No. 20 Peng Shuai.
stretch. Barrera scored his first goal on a 17-yard shot inside the right post in the 29th minute, snapping Howard’s Gold Cup shutout streak at 351 minutes. Then in the 36th minute, Dos Santos’ pass from the right side of the penalty area deflected off defender Eric Lichaj and toward Howard. Guardado pounced on the ball and poked it in from five yards, tying it at 2. Guardado played on a slightly sprained left ankle. He was injured during Mexico’s 2-0 semifinal victory over Honduras on Wednesday. Dos Santos ended the scoring in the 76th minute by lofting a 17yard shot that Lichaj failed to head away from an open net at the left
post. The announced attendance of 93,420 was the largest for a Gold Cup game in the United States, but the crowd was decidedly in Mexico’s corner. The Americans responded with an early burst. Bradley put the U.S. ahead in the eighth minute with a 10-yard header off Freddy Adu’s corner kick. Donovan’s 11-yard shot inside the left post made it 2-0 in the 23rd minute. Clint Dempsey’s pass between two defenders freed Donovan for a breakaway. Defender Steve Cherundolo, who had played every minute of the Gold Cup for the United States, sprained his left ankle and left in the 11th minute. Two of Mexico’s defenders, Carlos Salcido and Rafael Marquez, also left in the first half because of injury.

Brown’s offensive counterparts soon erased that deficit. Justin Uribe led off the Roswell sixth with an infield single and moved to second when James Kono’s low throw from short went careening past Nacho Ochoa. In the next at-bat, Kevin Hoef sent the third pitch he saw into right for a double, scoring Uribe to tie the game at 1-1. Hoef then moved to third on a passed ball.

Verlander strikes out 14 in four-hit shutout victory
DETROIT (AP) — Justin Verlander struck out a career-high 14 in his latest masterful performance, and the Detroit Tigers beat the Arizona Diamondbacks 6-0 on Saturday night. Verlander (10-3) allowed four hits over eight innings, and Alex Avila’s three-run homer in the fourth broke the game open. The Tigers pulled into a virtual tie with Cleveland atop the AL Central. The Diamondbacks fell a halfgame behind first-place San Francisco in the NL West. Verlander walked only one batter. In the eighth inning, he reached 100 miles per hour on the stadium scoreboard — on his 116th pitch. Arizona rookie Josh Collmenter (4-4), from the town of Homer in south-central Michigan, allowed six runs and 10 hits in six-plus innings.
Giants 1, Indians 0 SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Tony Sipp balked home the only run with the bases loaded in the seventh inning. Sipp slightly flinched his left arm before throwing a pitch to Emmanuel Burriss, allowing Miguel Tejada to score and sending San Francisco to its fourth straight win. There also were two errors in the inning by second baseman Cord Phelps that spoiled a strong start by Justin Masterson (5-6). Matt Cain (7-4) pitched sevenplus innings of four-hit ball for San Francisco. Brian Wilson worked the ninth for his 23rd save.
Yankees 8, Rockies 3 NEW YORK (AP) — CC Sabathia tossed eight stingy innings to win for the seventh time in his last eight starts and Alex Rodriguez drove in three runs for New York. A dozen pitchers began the day with nine wins, but Sabathia (104) won the race to double digits. The big left-hander allowed one run while striking out nine, improving to 19-7 in interleague play. Ty Wigginton had a two-run homer for Colorado. Aaron Cook (0-3) got the loss. Mark Teixeira hit a two-run homer for New York.
White Sox 3, Nationals 0 CHICAGO (AP) — Jake Peavy threw four dominant innings in his first career relief appearance and the Chicago White Sox beat the Washington Nationals 3-0 on Saturday. Washington, which won 12 of its previous 13, is on the verge of hiring Davey Johnson as its new manager. General manager Mike Rizzo told Fox that Johnson has agreed to terms but there are still contract details to be worked out before an announcement can be made. Peavy (4-1) gave up a hit and struck out seven, combining with starter John Danks, Brian Bruney and closer Sergio Santos on a two-hitter that snapped Washington’s five-game winning streak. White Sox pitchers also combined for 13 strikeouts. Tom Gorzelanny (2-6) matched his longest outing of the season with seven innings, allowing one run and seven hits while striking out eight. Angels 6, Dodgers 1 LOS ANGELES (AP) — Tyler
Roswell Daily Record
Chatwood pitched seven strong innings, fellow rookie Mark T rumbo homered and Ver non Wells added a three-run shot and the Angels earned their second straight win in the Freeway Series. The Angels are 10-3 in their last 13 games at Dodger Stadium, and improved the AL West’s only winning road record to 24-19. The Dodgers lost their third straight and eighth in their last 11. Chatwood (5-4) allowed one run and four hits while improving to 3-0 in his first three career interleague starts. Dodgers starter Hiroki Kuroda (5-9) gave up two runs and three hits in five innings, equaling his shortest outing of the season.
Mets 14, Rangers 5 ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Lucas Duda matched a Mets record with three doubles while going 4 for 5 with four RBIs, Carlos Beltran snapped out of a slump with three hits and New York had season highs for runs and hits. The Mets led 3-0 after four batters against Alexi Ogando (7-3), who lost his third consecutive start without making it past the fifth inning. Jonathon Niese (7-6) struck out seven in 5 2⁄3 innings and limited Texas to two runs, those coming on consecutive homers by Adrian Beltre and Michael Young in the fourth. The Mets said the righthander left the game, which was played with temperatures in the mid-90s, for precautionary reasons because of a rapid heartbeat. Niese is 5-2 with a 2.36 ERA his last eight starts.
Pirates 6, Red Sox 4 PITTSBURGH (AP) — Lyle Overbay hit a 3-run homer and the Pittsburgh Pirates spoiled Tim Wakefield’s homecoming. Jef f Karstens (5-4) pitched effectively into the seventh inning as the Pirates tied a season-high by posting their fourth straight victory to move two games above .500 at 39-37. Joel Hanrahan worked the ninth for his 22nd save, with the largest crowd in PNC Park history erupting after the final out. Adrian Gonzalez, Josh Reddick and Jacoby Ellsbury all hit solo home runs for the Red Sox, but Gonzalez struck out representing the tying run to end the game. Wakefield (4-3), making his first start in Pittsburgh in 18 years, gave up five runs on seven hits in six innings, walking four and striking out two.
Reds 10, Orioles 5 BALTIMORE (AP) — Joey Votto homered twice and drove in five runs, and the Cincinnati Reds won a long-ball duel that featured nine home runs. Votto hit a three-run drive in the third inning and put Cincinnati ahead for good with a tworun shot in the fifth. Jonny Gomes, Scott Rolen and Drew Stubbs also connected for the Reds. The five home runs were a season high. Adam Jones, Nick Markakis, Matt Wieters and J.J. Hardy homered for Baltimore. It was the first time the Orioles hit four homers in a game since Aug. 10, 2010, in Cleveland. Bronson Arroyo (7-6) won his third straight start despite allowing a career -high tying four

homers in 6 1 ⁄ 3 innings. The right-hander gave up nine hits, walked three and struck out six. Brian Matusz (1-3) yielded six runs and nine hits in 4 2 ⁄ 3 innings.
Athletics 4, Phillies 1 PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Trevor Cahill tossed three-hit ball into the eighth inning, and Adam Rosales homered. Cahill and Phillies starter Cole Hamels had a nice and easy duel going in a game that breezed by until the Phillies rallied late. Cahill (8-5) won his second straight start after dropping five straight and spoiled Hamels’ bid to win his 10th game. Scott Sizemore’s RBI single in the fourth made it 2-1. Cahill and Andrew Bailey held the lead from there. Bailey got four outs to earn his fifth save of the season. Cahill struck out six and walked three in 7 2⁄3 innings, and has allowed one run or less 10 times this season. Hamels (9-4) lost his second straight start, but extended his streak of not allowing more than two earned runs to six straight outings. Brewers 11, Twins 1 MILWAUKEE (AP) — Prince Fielder hit one of Milwaukee’s four homers to give him an NLbest 67 RBIs this season and the Brewers beat injury-riddled Minnesota after Delmon Young left on a stretcher. Carlos Gomez, Yuniesky Betancourt and Corey Hart also went deep as the NL Central-leading Brewers won their sixth straight over Minnesota. The tumbling Twins dropped their fourth in a row overall and may have lost Young for a prolonged period after the left fielder jammed his right ankle against the wall in the fifth. Yovani Gallardo (9-4) gave up a run over seven innings. Gomez homered off Francisco Liriano (47) to highlight a five-run third and Fielder’s 21st blast of the season, a two-run shot, capped the sixth. Milwaukee improved to 28-11 at Miller Park, the best home record in the majors. The Brewers hold a season-high two-game lead

over the Cardinals in the division.
Royals 3, Cubs 2 KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Chris Getz drove in the go-ahead run with two outs in the eighth inning and Kansas City beat Chicago, snapping a season-high six game losing streak. Getz’s bouncer was deflected by pitcher Jeff Samardzija (5-4) to shortstop Starlin Castro, but his throw to first was late and Jeff Francoeur, who had walked, scored. Samardzija walked two and hit a batter and retired only one of the five batters he faced. Greg Holland (2-1) pitched a perfect eighth to pick up the victory. Joakim Soria struck out all three batters he faced in the ninth to log his 12th save in 17 opportunities. Aramis Ramirez and Geovany Soto hit back-to-back home runs in a span of four pitches by Danny Duffy in the top of the sixth to tie it at 2-2.
Rays 7, Astros 2 HOUSTON (AP) — B.J. Upton homered and drove in two runs to back up Wade Davis for Tampa Bay. Evan Longoria and Casey Kotchman added two RBIs apiece for the Rays, who won their third straight. Upton had an RBI single in the third inning and homered for the second straight day with a solo shot that made it 4-1 in the sixth. Longoria hit run-scoring doubles in both the first and ninth innings and Kotchman added a two-run single in the ninth. Davis (7-5) allowed five hits and a run in seven innings for his third straight win. Kyle Farnsworth allowed two hits in 1 2⁄3 innings for his 16th save.
Houston starter Bud Norris (46) yielded six hits and three runs while walking three in five innings.
Blue Jays 6, Cardinals 3 ST. LOUIS (AP) — Carlos Villanueva (5-1) worked six solid innings backed by Juan Rivera’s three-run homer, the only hit in a five-run third. Jaime Garcia (6-3) kept his home ERA at a minuscule 0.88 because four of the runs in Toronto’s big inning were unearned due to third baseman Daniel Descalso’s two-out throwing error. But the left-hander gave up Rivera’s sixth homer the next at-bat and walked three in the inning, including Jose Bautista intentionally to load the bases. Garcia had four strikeouts and four walks, one off his season high, in seven innings.
Braves 10, Padres 1 SAN DIEGO (AP) — Jair Jurrjens pitched six strong innings to become the first 10-game winner in the NL and the Atlanta Braves had eight extra-base hits in a 10-1 victory over the San Diego Padres on Saturday night. Dan Uggla hit a three-run homer for Atlanta, which has won five of six and 12 of 17 overall. Jurrjens (10-3) combined with three relievers on a four -hitter and lowered his NL-leading ERA to 2.07. He joined CC Sabathia of the Yankees and Detroit’s Justin Verlander as 10-game winners. Jurrjens has won his last three starts against San Diego, including his first career complete game, an 8-2 victory at Petco Park on April 26. On Saturday night, the right-hander held San Diego to one run and three hits.

A year ago the Gamecocks lost their first game here before becoming the first team in CWS history to roll off six straight wins. They swept UCLA in the finals. The Gamecocks won three straight to advance to this year’s finals, though it took until their final at-bat
to win two of the games. “I coached for a long time and was unable to get to Omaha as a head coach,” Tanner said. “And then we were here a few times. It’s something you never take for granted. We played in the finals last year and we got back there again. I’m grateful.” The Gamecocks have allowed two earned runs in 31 innings (0.58 ERA). Michael Roth has surrendered just one earned run in 14 1⁄3 innings and Price, the closer, has given up none in 6 2⁄3 innings. South Carolina is batting .274 in its three games, best in a CWS field that has struggled to generate offense in the spacious new stadium where the wind regularly blows in.

PITTSFORD, N.Y. (AP) — Yani Tseng made the mistake of grabbing the trophy before the end of a major tournament once already this year — and lost. With a five-shot lead after the third round of the LPGA Championship on Saturday, the top-ranked Tseng doesn’t intend to make the same mistake again. “When I see a trophy, I just figure I want to grab it,” Tseng said, recalling how she might have jinxed herself at the Kraft Nabisco Championship in April. That’s when she grabbed the trophy as she stepped to the first tee upon opening the final round, and then proceeded to squander a two-shot lead in finishing second to Stacy Lewis. “It just did not work out at Kraft, so I better not touch it this time,” Tseng said, smiling. “That’s how I learn.” The way she’s playing, Tseng has reason to be patient in a bid to win her fourth career major, and eighth tour nament. She essentially ran away from the field with a 5-under 67 that has her at 13-under 203 at Locust Hill Country Club outside Rochester. Americans Morgan Pressel (70) and Cindy LaCrosse (69) were tied for second, and Hee Young Park (72) was seven shots behind Tseng. Defending champion Cristie Kerr matched Tseng with a third-round best 67 to join Lewis (70), Meena Lee (70) and Paula Creamer (72) at 5 under. Tseng, who turned 22 in January, is a round away from becoming the youngest to win four major golf tournaments. She also won LPGA Championship during her rookie-of-theyear season in 2008, when the event was played at Bulle Rock in Maryland, and took the Kraft Nabisco and Women’s British Open last year. T iger Woods and Se Ri Pak were 24 when they won their fourth majors. Patty Berg was 23 when she won her fourth major in 1941, but before the LPGA was formed in 1950.
“That sounds pretty good. I’m working on that,” Tseng said, when informed of the elite company she has a chance of passing. “Tomorrow, I’m just going to go there and smile all day and then play smart.” Tseng has seven career LPGA Tour wins, and has already won twice this year, including the State Farm Classic two weeks ago. She also has three international victories this year, sweeping the Women’s Australian Open and Australian Ladies Masters. Tseng is roaring through the course much like Kerr did a year ago, when she finished at 19-under 269 to win by a whopping 12 strokes. Kerr liked her chances when she finished her round four shots behind Tseng, who was still on the front nine. “They will notice that I fired a good round to kind of get back into position,” Kerr said, referring to her competition. “I think I will be within striking distance, but I would have to put up another round like this tomorrow. Kerr might have to reconsider, given how Tseng was hardly af fected by the intermittent rain and gusts of winds that picked up in the afternoon, making it dif ficult to navigate the tight fairways and reach the small greens. Opening the day with a one shot lead over Pat Hurst and with six others within three shots, Tseng ran away from the pack by closing with five birdies and bogey over her final 10 holes. It was a round in which she hit 11 of 14 fairways and 14 greens. A day after she twice missed from within 3 feet, including an 18-incher for bogey on No. 18, Tseng was more consistent with her putting. On Saturday, she sank a 6-foot putt for birdie on No. 9, and then scrambled to save par with a pair of 4footers on Nos. 10 and 11. Then came a 7-foot birdie putt on the par-4 12th and a 14-footer on No. 13 to go to 12 under for the tournament, and extend her lead by five shots at that time.
the CWS finals. Last year they went 0-2 in Omaha. With 100 wins in 2010-11, the Gators are in the best two-year stretch in program history. They’re trying to become the first SEC school to win national titles in football (1996, 2006, 2008), men’s basketball (2006 and ’07) and baseball. The Gators are batting .265 here compared with
.311 the rest of the season. They came in with a nation-leading 67 home runs, but only Preston Tucker has gone deep for them. Randall and Alex Panteliodis allowed one earned run apiece in their CWS starts, and the Gators’ team ERA is 2.00 in their three games. They walked only two batters in their first 24 CWS innings.

This undated handout photo provided by the Smithsonian Institution shows a carved image, at least 13,000 years old, found in Vero Beach, Fla. Some of the earliest Americans turned out to have been artists. The bone fragment with the carved image of a mammoth or mastodon, may be the first of its kind found in North America, a new study reports.
Ancient bone fragment holds carving of mammoth or mastodon WASHINGTON (AP) — Some of the earliest Americans tur n out to have been artists. A bone fragment at least 13,000 years old, with the carved image of a mammoth or mastodon, has been discovered in Florida, a new study reports. While prehistoric art depicting animals with trunks has been found in Europe, this may be the first in the Western Hemisphere, researchers report Wednesday in the Journal of Archaeological Science. “It’s pretty exciting, we haven’t found anything like this in North America,” said Dennis J. Stanford, curator of North American Archaeology at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History, who was a coauthor of the report. They hunted these animals, Stanford explained, and “you see people drawing all kinds of pictures that are of relevance and importance to them.” Cave paintings showing animals have been found in Texas, but those were dated to about 4,000 years ago, much more recent than the newly found carved bone.
The bone fragment, discovered in Vero Beach, Fla., contains an incised image about 3 inches long from head to tail and about 1 3/4 inches from head to foot. “There was considerable skepticism expressed about the authenticity of the incising on the bone until it was examined exhaustively by archaeologists, paleontologists, forensic anthropologists, materials science engineers and artists,” lead author Barbara Purdy of the University of Florida said in a statement. The bone was found by a fossil hunter near a location, known as the Old Vero Site, where human bones were found side-by-side with the bones of extinct Ice Age animals in an excavation from 1913 to 1916. It was heavily mineralized, which prevented standard dating, Stanford explained. But mammoths and mastodons had died out in the Americas by 13,000 years ago, so it has to be older than that. “It could be quite early,” he added. But the researchers wanted to be sure it was not a moder n ef fort to mimic prehistoric art. They compared it with
other materials found at the site and studied it with microscopes, which showed no differences in coloration between the carved grooves and the surrounding material. That, they said, indicated that both surfaces aged together. In addition, the researchers said, there were no signs of the material being carved recently or that the grooves were made with metal tools. The only other report of an ancient bone in North America carved with the image of a mastodon came from Mexico in 1959, but questions were raised about that object and it subsequently disappeared. The new discovery was made by James Kennedy, a fossil hunter, in 2006 or 2007. Kennedy noticed the image in 2009 when he was cleaning the bone and he then contacted researchers who began their study of the artifact. The newly found North American image is similar to some found in Europe, raising the question of whether this is merely coincidence or evidence of some connection between the two, the paper noted.
SANTA FE (AP) — New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez was in Mexico on Saturday to meet with the governor of Sonora and discuss the future of the relationship between the border states. Martinez’s staf f says the two sides are looking at ways to improve the region’s economy and overcome common chal-
lenges, such as crime and border violence. Various working groups were convened on subjects ranging from health and education to the critical issues of job creation and economic development. The states agreed to develop exchange-learning programs, particularly among nurses and other
medical professionals. Martinez met with Sonora Gov. Guillermo Padres Elias. In the coming weeks, she’s expected to meet in Santa Fe with Chihuahua’s governor. The head of Sonora’s education department will travel to New Mexico to discuss strategies for raising student achievement.

Keep public lands accessible
Dear Editor: On behalf of the nearly 200 members of the Southern New Mexico Chapter of Safari Club International, I want to commend the Chaves County Commission on the decision to maintain public access to the BLM lands on Buchannan Road. Maintaining access to our public lands is an increasingly difficult proposition given the extreme fire danger and the ongoing efforts by sincere minded individuals and organizations that seek to prevent access to further their “environmental” agenda. I understand that two commissioners were convinced that keeping Buchannan Road would place an excessive physical burden on the County Road Department. Given the austere nature of the times, I normally support stern control over governmental budgets. However, I must point out that I am not aware of any individual or group that was asking for improvements to the existing “two track” road. Hence, I must conclude that maintaining public access to approximately 30 square miles of public land will not be an additional or unanticipated burden. The county commissioners who voted “no” must not have had full disclosure of the actual costs and benefits of maintaining public access. How we justify public expenditure on “recreational” activities is a subject for study by individuals much better informed and educated than I. But, I submit that I am not aware of any modern recreational activity that exists without any taxpayer support of the facilties or access to public property that makes these activities affordable and available to the general public. The staggering list of publicly supported “recreational” activities, (such as golf, picnicking in the park, rodeo, frisbee, jogging, football, baseball, basketball, soccer, swimming, skateboarding, fishing, bird watching, symphony, butterfly counting, marching bands, target shooting, or even my personal favorite — hunting) are all made possible by the diligence of dedicated participants in garnering the taxpayers’ support for their activity. It is my considered opinion that the breadth and quality of recreational opportunity in our community is what makes Chaves County one of the best places to live. I will continue to encourage our elected officials to maintain whatever support is possible towards maintaining access to our public lands and facilities that make these recreational opportunities possible for the average person. The members of the Southern New Mexico Chapter of SCI pledge our support for affordable public access to federal, state and county lands and facilities that make bird watching, fishing, photography, hunting and the simple enjoyment of wild and scenic lands one of the key benefits to living in or visiting our beautiful part of the state. Sincerely, R.A. “Pancho” Maples Vice President, Southern N.M. Chapter, SCI
Think New Mexico
Dear Editor: New Mexicans often wonder why so little gets accomplished by our governments in Washington, D.C., and Santa Fe. Part of the problem with our political culture is that both sides are overly concerned with accumulating political power and not nearly concerned enough about solving the problems that their constituents elected them to solve. Harold Morgan perpetuates this counterproductive, partisan political culture in his recent column in the Roswell Daily Record in which he attempts to categorize Think New Mexico and other groups by attaching an ideological label to each. Unfortunately, Morgan got it wrong with respect to Think New Mexico, which was founded to advance New Mexico in some of the national rankings in which New Mexico currently places at or near the bottom. We do this by developing and advocating for effective solutions whether they are left, right or center. To Think New Mexico, what matters is not whether an idea is liberal or
conservative, but whether it will work for New Mexico and improve our quality of life. Consistent with this approach, Think New Mexico has supporters (we call them “social investors”) from 94 cities across New Mexico and board members with perspectives that span the political spectrum. Current board members include Republicans, Democrats and Independents, like our chairman, former Republican Governor Garrey Carruthers; former Democratic Attorney General Paul Bardacke; Ed Lujan, former chair of the Republican Party of New Mexico and former CEO of Manuel Lujan Agencies; Roberta Cooper Ramo, the first woman elected president of the American Bar Association and the American Law Institute; LaDonna Harris, chairwoman of Americans for Indian Opportunity; Chris Garcia, former president of the University of New Mexico; and David Buchholtz, former chairman of the Association of Commerce and Industry. They are statesmen and stateswomen whose focus is to help New Mexico succeed. Think New Mexico’s legislative initiatives have bipartisan sponsors and have been signed into law by governors from both political parties. They include repealing the state’s regressive tax on food and successfully defeating efforts to reimpose it; redirecting millions of dollars a year out of the state lottery’s excessive operating costs and into full tuition scholarships; and introducing free market pricing into the title insurance industry to lower closing costs for homebuyers and homeowners who refinance their mortgages. I appreciate that Mr. Morgan included our website in his column, www.thinknewmexico.org, and I would urge your readers to visit it and evaluate Think New Mexico for themselves based on our record. Sincerely, Fred Nathan Executive Director Think New Mexico
Baseball deserves coverage
Dear Editor: There was some exciting and good high school baseball played this past weekend here in Roswell, but the newspaper would not know anything about that, since you didn’t bother to cover any of it. Our kids deserve recognition as well as those that break the law. I want to commend the Sunrise Optimist Club for putting on an outstanding baseball tournament. It was done with class and great organization from the fields being well kept to the congeniality of the concession stand workers. We have been to the last few tournaments sponsored by the Sunrise Optimist Club and some of the others could take lessons from them. Thank you Sunrise Optimist. I’m pretty sure this won’t make the paper, but at least you know that as far as a lot of us parents are concerned, you as a newspaper, dropped the ball. Frank J. Speigel Roswell

country. Current students’ families have immigrated from Mexico, Guatemala, Canada, the South Pacific, Europe, the Middle East, to include Iraq, and all around the world. Congressman Steve Pearce is correct in praising all of the young Americans from all backgrounds, who have joined the ranks of Job Corps to get the education and training that eludes so many. Job Corps creates successes out of the population that the traditional education system is simply not designed for. We are proud that Steve Pearce continues to champion the Job Corps program and its goals of training America’s youth for the future. The program is successful in turning lives around. Rep. Pearce understands New Mexico’s need for jobs, and he has shown through word and deed that job creation in New Mexico is his top priority. We encourage everyone who is eligible to get into Job Corps to get on the waiting list because Job Corps works. John Merchant Business Community Liaison Roswell Job Corps Center
Walk for Hope
Dear Editor: The second annual Walk for Hope took place last month and once again, was a great success. Our community members came together to raise funds for a most worthy cause, the Chaves County Cancer Fund, that helps residents as they go through cancer treatment. Cancer has touched too many lives and the money raised helps with practical needs as people go through treatment. The event had almost 1,700 registered Team Members with approximately 2,500 people in attendance. The night was filled with celebration, fellowship, entertainment, guest speakers, activities, raffles, fundraisers and so much more. The Walk for Hope committee members are the best and have worked very hard since last fall to assure this event was successful and that it honored local cancer survivors, those who lost the battle, their caregivers and loved ones. The objective was to raise funds and without our generous sponsors, an event like this could not take place. Our deepest thanks and gratitude go to our Signature Sponsor, Kymera Independent Physicians, and the 39 other sponsors who include, Alpha-Omega Printing, Bank of the Southwest, Desert Sun Auto Group, Eastern New Mexico Medical Center, Farmers Country Market, First Impressions, Roswell Ford Lincoln Mercury, ARC Powerline Construction, Church on the Move, Dr. Randy Ellis, Pioneer Bank, Prestige Equipment Rentals, Read & Stevens, Inc., Roswell Toyota,

Tim Jennings, Peppers Grill & Bar, Sams Club, Sanders, Bruin, Coll & Worley, P.A., Valley Bank of Commerce and Deborah Geisler, LISW, PA. We also had numerous supporters and volunteers who participated in the event and to them we also give our thanks and gratitude. They are Pastor Troy Smothermon, Councilor Dusty Huckabee, Nicholas Zamora, The Patriot Guard Riders, Dr. Masoud Khorsand, Sean Lee, Michelle Hartman, Nate Garcia, Mesa Middle School Percussion Ensemble — which by the way were awesome — Sweet Leilanis, Rac-a-Taps, Country Charm Band, Chase Martinson, Priscilla Lynch, along with many others. The list is not all inclusive and we apologize for those we have left out, as there were many other generous people who gave in so many other ways by either donating monetary gifts, door prizes or volunteering at the event in one capacity or another. By the way, Roswell Parks and Recreation staff, you rock! We do, however, want to point out that the volunteers ranged from folks from the Senior Circle all the way down to our elementary school children. We had children who had bake sales, sold lemonade and the Mesa Middle School Percussion Ensemble which raised more than $1,762 by performing out in the community to raise funds on its own. It is proof that no matter what your age, you can do something and make a difference to better the life of someone else. We are so blessed to be a part of such a committed group of people and want to thank each and every person who participated, even in a small way. Every one of you has made a difference that counts. We look forward to the third annual Walk for Hope next May and encourage all community members to participate. If you would like to volunteer, you may contact me at 637-9550. We will need many more volunteers next year as we doubled in size from last year and I am sure next year will be bigger and better than ever. Once again, thank you Chaves County for all of your support and generosity. Julie Morrow, chair, and the Walk For Hope Committee
Dear Editor: After reading a recent letter to the editor on June 21 regarding Job Corps, I must provide explanation and clarification about the program and the criteria for a student to be eligible for enrollment. Job Corps is the nation’s largest and most successful residential education and career technical training program. With 124 Job Corps centers around the country and a student capacity of 44,000, the program has a very strict selection system. In order to become a student in Job Corps, an applicant must be between the ages of 16 and 24, be a legal U.S. resident, have a need for additional training and meet certain income guidelines. In the recent letter to the editor it was falsely claimed that Job Corps is accepting foreign kids. The Roswell Job Corps Center does not accept foreign nationals. The same can be said for every other center in the

NEW YORK (AP) — Director Daniel Sullivan and the cast of Shakespeare in the Park’s production of “All’s Well That Ends Well” have done something hard — they’ve managed to make neither of its two lead characters into villains. Annie Parisse as Helena comes across as a spunky, love-starved heroine who is determined to get her man even though he despises her, while Andre Holland plays Bertram as a sweet rogue who has something of a stalker on his hands. The result, which opened Saturday, is a production whose needle quivers toward the comedy end of the spectrum in one of Shakespeare’s “problem plays” — a complex mix of tragedy and humor that the Public Theater has pared this summer at the Delacorte Theatre with the equally tricky “Measure for Measure” directed by David Esbjornson. Sullivan’s may be the visually tamer of the two productions — Esbjornson channels Alexander McQueen in his — but it is a lush and clever staging set in 1918 that benefits from Tom Kitt’s evocative mood music leaning on strings and Jane Greenwood’s handsome costumes of flapper dresses, World War I uniforms and somber suits with white ties. It is a lovely production that, in the final scene, leaves both Helena and Bertram hand-in-hand but a little stunned by what has happened. Helena, “a poor physician’s daughter,” has twice won her lord — once after healing the king and once after tricking her love to commit adultery with her. He looks beaten, resigned. She looks regal. But grim as some of the plot lines are, Sullivan, who last year took his Shakespeare in the Park production of “The Merchant of Venice” with Al Pacino to Broadway, has mined all the laughs and humanity, aided by excellent per for mances by Parisse, Holland, the terrific Reg Rogers as the buffoon Parolles and a solid Tonya Pinkins as the
Countess. The clown, Lavatch (played drolly by David Manis), has been nicely transformed into a country bumpkin. There are visual jokes, such as a newspaper headline that reads “King Lives!” after the French monarch (a bashfully regal but quick-to-anger John Collum) emerges cured from his sick bed by Helena. Suitors for Helena appear in Act 1 like a rose ceremony scene from “The Bachelorette” and a very pregnant character is seen munching on an eclair. The scene in which the braggart and coward Parolles is exposed is brilliantly staged, complete with fake accents and gobbledygook. Sullivan keeps the action moving at a furious pace, aided by a trap door that pops up for a new scene even as actors from a previous one are still exiting. A jukebox, a set of tents, chairs, curtains and a cannon are all the props needed. Parisse starts of f her Helena as a geeky, teary wallflower who gradually gains in intensity and strength and loveliness — as do her costumes — while her beloved pulls further away. She simply pursues — leaving unanswered whether she really wants Bertram, seeks the security of jumping into his class, or simply refuses to be denied. In any case, she becomes a force of nature, a takecharge homing missile who can’t take a hint. She isn’t waiting for God to answer her prayers. “Our remedies oft in ourselves do lie/Which we ascribe to heaven,” she says. Bertram, on the other hand, is a cad who will wink at any pretty maiden in a dress — his own mother calls him a “rash and unbridled boy” — but Holland is so genial that he just comes across as more luckless than venal. He has that rare ability to make the centuries melt away since Shakespeare wrote his rich dialogue. For Bertram, this tale is not a tale of love. It’s a horror story and he conveys the growing terror of a man who is forced to marry a

He’s hardly a victim,
though. As he runs from Helena, he seduces another woman (Kristen Connolly as Diana), hands over a precious family ring as payment and then, when confronted, denies the sexual
relationship by blaming the maiden. The play seems to nicely tap into the current men-being-naughty vibe, helped by cigar smoke wafting around by wolfish characters.
In the play, though, poor Bertram is simply no match for his better half. When his wife reappears at the end from a faked death and all of her scheming has been exposed, Bertram is asked by Helena if he will finally submit to her. The poor husband is stunned and still somewhat confused by this Terminator of love. He replies to the king: “If she, my liege, can make me know this clearly/I’ll love her dearly — ever, ever dearly.” Sullivan’s production teases out all the feminism of this play. Helena outthinks, outwits and basically steamrolls Bertram. What she wins is a lukewar m husband, a man higher in class but hardly classy. It’s not exactly a fairy tale ending. Even the king isn’t so sure we have a happy ending. “All yet seems well,” he says.

VISTAS Roswell Daily Record
MARTHA D. URQUIDES-STAAB VISTAS EDITOR The Boy Scouts of America is an organization that has been in existence for a century and is dedicated in teaching life skills to young boys and men. Roswell’s extension of the Boys Scouts is the Conquistador Council. In its time of existence it has helped many boys grow into responsible men. Through scouting experiences these individuals have gained skills, values, morals and responsibility. The Conquistador Council has had many Scouts come and go through its doors, and has seen its young men become responsible adults. Their population has had good numbers in the past, but recently they have hit a recruitment dip and their numbers have slumped. “We can’t recruit in schools anymore. Our main recruiting tool was taken away,” said Jim Bethel, district director of the Conquistador Council. Bethel says the Boy Scouts organization isn’t gone. It is still alive and has many wonderful programs to offer to the youth of Roswell. “Being involved in the Scouts gives each member focus, self confidence, self-esteem, principles, teaches teamwork, and achievement,” said Bethel. Bethel also said that young boys who are in the scouts have a better chance of going to college, are more active in their religious communities and become better family men. His concerns are that the public knows every community needs to have a Scout council but no one knows how to reach them. He fears that many of the boys who want to get involved may not know how to contact the Boy Scouts, so the Conquistador Council relies on other forms of getting the word out including, storefront recruiting, inviting through the ranks, working with the Girl Scouts, and being highly visible at city-wide functions. They post flyers around the city and are making their next appearance in the fair parade this fall. Age groups divide the Scouts. The Cub Scouts is for boys grades one through five. Cubs learn traditions and values, practical skills and service. Boy Scouts is for boys ages 11 to 18. This is an outdoor adventure program that develops leadership, practical living skills, giving service to others, develop teamwork, learn to be leaders, and live the values found in the Scout Promise and Law. There are various ranks in the scouts, Eagle Scout is the last and highest rank. “Many parents see a difference in their children when they are in the Scouts,” said Bethel. Nikolas Rivera is a 16-year-old Goddard High student and Eagle Scout. He started as a Cub Scout when he was eight and he believes the experience has helped him in his adolescent life. “I absolutely think scouting has made me a better person overall. It has taken me on adventures I would have never been able to do without the scouts. I wouldn’t have been able to travel all over the country if it hadn’t been for them, I’ve made a lot of friends as well.” Rivera and many other young men from the Roswell chapter Conquistador Council have been working hard to recruit members. Their recruitment tools consist of popcorn sales, pinewood derby, various scouting events and recruiting their friends. “I think the reason Scouts has been so successful is because it pushes you to go to the next level earning badges, etc. I have learned values and morals and I have an idea on where I’m headed in life.” Rivera is actively involved in his church, school and also holds a parttime job. His side project is impressive. “With the help of my dad, I was able to get my business license and I have started a photography business,” His business is doing well and companies and businesses in the community have hired him. This experience has helped Rivera on a path to post-secondary education and future plans, including going to a photography school in San Diego and introducing his future children to the Scouts. “I have kept a box of stuff I have collected over the years from Scouts. I plan to show it to them one day. I will give them the choice if they want. If they don’t, bummer, but I hope they do. It’s helped me so much and taught me a lot. So we’ll see.” Rivera credits his success to his Scout leader Gary Miller. “He is such an amazing person, he is one of the best people I’ve ever
met. The things he does for us, he is truly dedicated to scouting and what he does for this organization.” Ben DeLeon, a 24-year-old Roswell resident has been actively involved in Scouts and is still currently involved with the organization. DeLeon graduated from Goddard High in 2004 and from college with a degree in business. He credits his success to the Scouts for shaping him to become a responsible person. “It helped me gain skills so that I can be a leader in my community. It taught me how to be a better, responsible person.” Anthony Acevedo, also from Roswell, credits the Scouts for keeping him out of trouble. “My mom put me at five or six years old. I made it all the way to an Eagle Scout. It was the most rewarding experience I ever had. It helped me make friends and kept me in line,” His fondest memories include lear ning emergency preparedness, working for each rank, community service and the camps he got to visit as a Scout. Many young men are thankful for their experiences and credit their time with the Scouts for their many successes. Anyone interested in joining the Boy Scouts, sign-up is year-round, contact the Conquistador Council at 622-3461 or stop by their office at 2603 N. Aspen Ave. email@example.com

Couples need to get to the ‘CORE’ of their relationship
Q: My wife and I don’t spend a lot of downtime together. It’s not like we’re out carousing with other people. But jobs, kids and other important responsibilities are taking their toll. How do we find time for ourselves? Jim: Your situation is not unique. Many husbands and wives today are running in opposite directions. We’re too wrapped up in work and even in our kids’ activities. It’s like we’re addicted to being busy. If you wait for life to “settle down” on its own, you’ll never make progress. You have to take active steps to make time for each other, and to foster genuine intimacy in your relationship. Dr. Harold L. Arnold Jr., an organizational psychologist, has developed an acrostic -- C.O.R.E. -- to help couples put intimacy back in their marriage. Maybe you’ll find it helpful.
“C” stands for commitment. Commit to a specific day and time each week when you and your wife can spend an hour in conversation -- without any distractions. Unless there’s an emergency, stick to this commitment. “O” represents openness. Be honest with your spouse about your needs, desires and fears. Open up with her; don’t hold it all in. The “R” in C.O.R.E. stands for repent. Many of the supposed flaws you see in your spouse are associated with your past behaviors. Own up to your mistakes and be willing to forgive your spouse for hers. Finally, the “E” represents empathy. Your wife will only open up if she senses that you really understand her and love her unconditionally. Take time to listen without prejudice and to respond unselfishly.
DR. JULI SLATTERY
FAMILY SYNDICATED COLUMNIST
Commitment, openness, repentance and empathy -the C.O.R.E. of marriage. If you and your spouse will make these behaviors a top priority, chances are excellent that you’ll feel more connected even amidst the busyness of life. Q: My sister is getting married next month, and I don’t like the guy she’s marrying. I’ve hinted that I don’t like him, but I’m wondering if I should say something or if I should just support her decision. Juli: My first question would be, “What don’t you like about your potential brother -in-law”? If your
concerns have more to do with superficial issues like appearance, interests or even personality, it’s probably better for you to keep your opinions to yourself and work on getting to know him better. If, however, your objections are more substantial, relating to his character or how he treats your sister, sharing these thoughts may be very important. Do your parents and others who know your sister’s fiance have similar concer ns? If so, this is another indication of red flags that are worth bringing up.
no bride wants to hear that a sibling is not completely supportive. So, be very careful how you address the topic. It’s much better to have one very intentional conversation than to let criticism and concern “drip out” over the years. As pastors in the movies used to say, “Speak now or forever hold your peace.” I recommend getting your sister alone, uninterrupted. Tell her how much you love her and care about her. Sensitively share with her some of the things you’ve noticed, and ask her if she has any of these concer ns as she approaches her wedding. If so, suggest the possibility of talking about these with a pastor or counselor. Most importantly, tell your sister that whatever she decides, you’ll be 100 percent behind her. Once she’s married, your job is to support your sister and her new marriage.
Even if you’re not thrilled about the guy she chose, he’s family now. Become a safe place for your sister to process the joys and challenges of their new marriage and do everything you can to help them succeed.

Or, the layer of compacted soil may not allow moisture to drain away from roots, leaving them to rot from sitting in water. Aeration is one task where you can spend a lot of time and money and reap only frustration if you go the traditional route of either renting a mechanical aerator or hiring a professional to do it for you. Many homeowners are finding liquid lawn aeration is a faster, easier, costeffective – and successful – alternative to mechanical aeration. LazyMan Soil Doctor, for example, combines liquid lawn aeration, dethatching, fertilizing and soil conditioning in an allin-one, easy-to-use, sprayon liquid.
Simply spray the polymer mixture on your lawn and it goes to work aerating, dethatching, conditioning, and fertilizing soil. The product covers 100 percent of your lawn, is chemical-free, adds nutrients and amino acids, increases much-needed air flow and boosts the earthwor m population underground. If you start out with decent topsoil, you can expect the first application to reach a depth of about 6 inches. Reapply one to two weeks after the initial application, and continue to apply, as needed, at two week intervals. Tests show that in most cases sur face water will drain away with a single application. The aerating elements that open up compacted soil (technically, polymers that react with water molecules) continue their work until they break

Green with lawn envy? How to make the grass greener on your side of the fence
JOAN CASANOVA GREEN EARTH MEDIA GROUP Does the grass look greener on the other side of the fence? When you peek at your neighbor’s lawn, maybe it really does look better – more lush and healthier– than your own. If what you see leaves you green with lawn envy, you’re not alone. Homeowners spend about $40 billion a year on improving and maintaining their lawns, according to the Environmental Protection Agency’s national home and garden survey. Undoubtedly, at least some of those invested dollars – and the hours of toil associated with them – still leave many homeowners dissatisfied with the results. The secret to green, great-looking grass isn’t how much you spend in ter ms of time or money, but how wisely you spend.
Investing in improving the soil under the grass gives your lawn a good foundation, and can fix many lawn issues such as poor drainage, soil compaction and thatch buildup. These issues can deprive grass roots of water, nutrients and air. Before wasting your time and money trying to improve your lawn, consider whether soil problems are standing between you and the lawn you long for. Here are some tips from the soil scientists at Outsidepride.com to help you create the lawn you crave: Aeration gets to the root of the problem. You can dump as much weed killer and fertilizer on a lawn as you can afford, but if nothing reaches the grass roots, your efforts will be wasted. Grass roots require a certain amount of oxygen to thrive. Soil packs down over time, as does
down. Research also shows that thatch is reduced by half with three applications at four-week intervals. Digging to the root of problems. To determine the health of your lawn’s roots, dig several small samples from various spots around the yard. Does the shovel slide into the soil easily? You should be able to insert half the shovel into the soil without too much difficulty. If you can’t, then you probably need to aerate and dethatch. Fertilizing is your next critical lawn-care task, it replenishes the reserves used during dormant winter months and fuels the rapid growth phase of grass. A balanced fertilizer, like the 10-3-6 liquid fertilizer in LazyMan Soil Doctor, is biologically enhanced through the introduction of beneficial microbial species and it
comprehensively revitalizes soil health, plant nutrition, ger mination and plant growth. Finally, water your lawn wisely. Once you have treated your lawn for problems with aeration, dethatching and fertilized and conditioned your soil, it is important to properly water your lawn. Avoid too much water and too-frequent watering. Water each area long enough to allow water penetration of about 7 inches. Do not water again until the soil has had a chance to become slightly dry. A healthy root system requires ongoing care. Pay attention to your lawn instead of waiting for signs of poor health to show up on the sur face of your lawn. A little prevention will ensure a beautiful lawn that leaves your neighbors – and not you – green with lawn envy.

Cheerios turns 70; Iconic cereal endures, sells Roswell Daily Record
BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) — Here’s a little quiz for the breakfast table: What is the most popular cereal brand in American grocery stores? Hint: It’s been General Mills’ top name since 1951. Another hint: If you’re a parent, you’ve vacuumed it from the minivan and under the high-chair cushion by the cupful. The answer, of course, is Cheerios. The iconic cereal, known by its distinctive yellow box, is 70 years old this year and still a force on the breakfast cereal market. One out of every eight boxes of cereal to leave the shelf in America carries the Cheerios name. “They’ve been around since the beginning of man, right?” said Kathy Scott in Cape Coral, Fla. For her, the cereal’s linked to memories of childhood Saturday morning cartoons. “My mother was very oldfashioned, a stay-at-home mom,” Scott, 50, said, “She made breakfast every morning, but on Saturday morning we were allowed to have cereal. Throw some fruit in there, sit on the floor and watch cartoons.” The tradition repeated itself with her own two children. “Saturday morning cartoons and Cheerios,” she said. To make Cheerios, balls of dough are heated and shot out of a “puffing gun” at hundreds of miles an hour, according to General Mills. The company’s waterfront plant in Buffalo has been firing them off since 1941, often cloaking the city with a distinctive toasty-with-a-sweet-finish aroma and inspiring T shirts announcing “My city
Honey Nut Cheerios
smells like Cheerios.” More than 10 shapes and sizes were considered before the makers settled on little Os. Since then, the company’s introduced several new flavors, starting with Honey Nut in 1979 and last year, chocolate. In 2009, sales of Honey Nut Cheerios surpassed the original flavor for the first time and remain in the top spot today. But Kathleen Dohl, 30, sticks to the originals, the ones she refers to as the “old-school, yellow box, plain Jane” variety. She buys it in bulk at Sam’s Club to keep her 6- and 3year-olds happy. “That’s one of the first

General Mills, in its response, stood by the claims and said the FDA’s complaints dealt with how the language appears on the box, not the cereal itself. The case is still open, an FDA spokeswoman said. “I went through a phase in high school where I drank Coca-Cola and carried around a box of Cheerios in my back pack,” said Dohl, whose course schedule and yearbook duties often kept her at the computer and in her car through meals. “That’s literally what I ate for breakfast, lunch and dinner,” she said. “...At least I felt like it was healthy.”
Since cereal is the major source of fiber for Americans, something most people shortchange themselves on, Cor nell University nutrition expert David Levitsky said it’s actually not a bad idea to eat cereal as a relatively low-calorie lunch or dinner once in a while, even the sugar-sweetened variety. “They’re seducing kids to eat it,” he acknowledged. “It’s a technique that breakfast food companies have learned and it works... but it’s got a good aspect because that’s where they’re getting their fiber in the morning,” he said. “And all these cereals are enriched.” Americans spent $6.4 billion on ready-to-eat cereal in the 52 weeks ending May 15, according to SymphonyIRI Group, a Chicago-based market research firm that tracked sales at supermarkets, drug stores and mass merchandise outlets, excluding Walmart. In honor of Cheerios’ 70th Buffalo’s Citybration Festival highlighting its assets will include a June 26 Cheerios breakfast in sight (and smell) of the General Mills facility. “Cheerios are actually a more iconic food to Buffalo than even the ubiquitous chicken wing,” said festival organizer Marti Gorman. (The spicy Buf falo wing came along in 1964.) “There just must be something so gently appealing about the product,” said Dave Hassett, a school counselor whose Born in Buffalo site sells the Cheerios T -shirts online and at local festivals. Along with his 4-year -old daughter, he said he eats a bowl daily. “I hope they stick around for 70 more years and beyond.”
LAS VEGAS (AP) — U.S. Rep. Joe Barton of Texas planned to introduce a federal bill Friday to legalize online poker, hoping to pull the estimated $6 billion industry out of the shadows at a time when its top operators face serious legal troubles. The Republican lawmaker told The Associated Press that the bill would let states choose whether they want to allow residents to play poker on the Internet, and require operators to already have gambling licenses in at least one U.S. state. A law passed in 2006 barred financial institutions from processing illegal gambling payments, but many have complained since then that it didn’t outlaw playing poker and didn’t define well enough exactly what is permissible. The Justice Department in April indicted executives and payment processors of online poker’s three biggest companies — PokerStars, Full T ilt Poker and Absolute Poker. They’re accused of tricking banks into processing the payments by disguising them as different kinds of transactions. Another indictment against those working for several smaller online poker sites came later. Barton said he checked around infor mally with Republican leadership and
felt good enough about the bill’s chances to move forward. “This may be the year that the stars align — I hope so,” Barton told the AP in advance of a news conference in Washington. Barton said the issue has traction because the indictments spurred poker players to renew their push on the issue, lawmakers are looking for ways to relieve a budget crunch and previous ef forts — though unsuccessful — have laid the groundwork for a detailed, workable solution. “I think this bill is going to benefit from a lot of spade-work that’s been done the past two or three Congresses,” said Barton, a senior member of the House’s energy and commerce committee. Potential operators would apply through a newly created of fice in the Commerce Department and need to have gambling licenses under at least one state or tribe. Provisions in the bill restrict those who could apply for a license for the first three years to licensed gambling companies that have significant assets, and require significant vendors to be scrutinized the same way. “We’re going to try to get a bill on the President’s desk in this Congress,” Barton said.
‘real people’ foods that they ate,” the Chester, Va., mother said. “They know when we’re having a morning where we’re running late, they’re like, ‘can I get a snack bag of Cheerios?”’ she said, “because it’s something I can’t say no to. I can say no to chips. I can say no to candy. I can say no to a dozen other things, but a snack bag of Cheerios? How can you say no to that?” So yes, she’s cleaned them out of the car seats. “At least they’re not sticky,” she said, “so that’s a plus. And they’re not so colorful. Once you grind them in they just look like
the rest of the dirt, they don’t look neon-colored.” Minneapolis-based General Mills began advertising Cheerios (first called Cheerioats) as a first food for toddlers in 1974. Since 1999, the company has focused on promoting the cereal as healthy; it’s made from whole-grain oats, with 3 grams of fiber and 1 gram of sugar per serving. But in 2009, federal regulators took issue with the cereal box’s claim that it was “clinically proven to help lower cholesterol.” In a warning letter, the Food and Drug Administration said only FDA-approved drugs can make such a claim.
US rep. to introduce Seattle attackers just wanted press online poker bill SEATTLE (AP) — Two ex-convicts planned an attack on a Seattle military recruiting station hoping that it would get attention from the media, authorities say, and even imagined the headlines: “Three Muslim Males Walk Into MEPS Building, Seattle, Washington, And Gun Down Everybody.” Abu Khalid Abdul-Latif, also known as Joseph Anthony Davis, 33, of Seattle, was arrested Wednesday when he and another man showed up at a warehouse garage to pick up machine guns they planned to use in the attack, authorities said Thursday. The weapons had been rendered inoperable by federal agents and posed no risk to the public. Authorities learned of the plot this month when a third person recruited to participate alerted Seattle police, according to court documents. Agents then set up the sting through the confidential informant, who had known Abdul-Latif for years. Abdul-Latif had little knowledge of weapons, but served briefly in the Navy in the mid-1990s and was familiar with recruiting stations like the one they targeted, a criminal complaint said. The U.S. Attorney’s Office in Seattle said he and his alleged accomplice, Walli Mujahidh, planned to attack Joint Base LewisMcChord but later changed targets. “If we can get control of the building and we can hold it for a while, then we’ll get the local news down there, the media down there, you know what I’m saying,” Abdul-Latif was quoted in a court document as saying. “It’s a confined space, not a lot of people carrying weapons, and we’d have an advantage.” Mujahidh pictured the headline — “Three Muslim Males Walk Into MEPS Building, Seattle, Washington, And Gun Down Everybody” — according to the court document. Authorities said the two planned to use machine guns and grenades in the attack. In audio and video recordings, they discussed the plot, including strategies to time their attack on military recruits, such as by tossing grenades in the cafeteria, the complaint said. The attack would not target “anybody innocent — that means old people, women out of uniform, any children,” Abdul-Latif allegedly said. “Just people who wear the green for the kaffir army, that’s who we’re
going after.” Abdul-Latif was recorded in conversations with the informant where he spoke admiringly of the 2009 massacre at Fort Hood, Texas, that claimed 13 lives. He referred to war crimes charges against five soldiers accused of killing Afghan civilians for sport last year, saying “he was not comfortable with letting the legal system deal with these matters,” according to an FBI agent’s affidavit filed in U.S. District Court. Mujahidh confessed after the arrest, saying the attack was aimed at preventing the U.S. military “from going to Islamic lands and killing Muslims,” court documents said. He is also known as Frederick Domingue Jr., 32, of Los Angeles. Court-appointed lawyers for the men declined to comment. The arrests and news of the plot come after a May 31 assessment from the Homeland Security Department that said coordinated terrorist attacks against military recruiting and National Guard facilities were unlikely. But it warned that lone offenders or groups would try to launch attacks against those facilities. Abdul-Latif and Mujahidh face federal charges of conspiracy to murder officers and employees of the United States, conspiracy to use a weapon of mass destruction, and possession of firearms in furtherance of crimes of violence. AbdulLatif was also charged with two counts of illegal possession of firearms. “The complaint alleges these men intended to carry out a deadly attack against our military where they should be most safe, here at home,” U.S. Attor ney Jenny A. Durkan, of Seattle, said in a statement. “This is a sobering reminder of our need to be vigilant.” Abdul-Latif was previously convicted for robbing a Bremerton, Wash., convenience store and for custodial assault, as well as for obstructing a law enforcement officer, assault and theft. When he faced the robbery charge in 2002, he was found to have some “issues” during a psychological evaluation but allowed to stand trial, FBI Special Agent Albert C. Kelly III wrote in the complaint. A copy of the evaluation showed that Abdul-Latif believed he suffered from depression and abandonment issues, because his father served time in prison in California and he

He also said he “huffed” gasoline and smoked marijuana to get high, and that he tried to kill himself in 2001 by deliberately overdosing on seizure medication. He served prison time on the robbery charge from January 2002 until July 2004. State Corrections Department spokesman Chad Lewis said “nothing in Davis’ records that indicates that he converted to Islam while he was in prison.” A sign on the door of Abdul-Latif’s apartment read in part: “In the Name of Allah we enter, in the name of Allah we leave, and upon our Lord we depend.” It wasn’t immediately clear how the suspects became acquainted, though Mujahidh formerly lived in Seattle. He was convicted in municipal court of violating a domestic violence protection order stemming from a 2007 incident. Abdul-Latif filed for bankruptcy last month, reporting that his monthly income from his janitorial business was nullified by its operating expenses. Steve Dashiak, his bankruptcy attorney, told The Associated Press he was stunned by the charges. “I sensed no ill will from him whatsoever,” Dashiak said. “He seemed like a guy just trying to make it, having a rough time because business wasn’t going very well. To say that I didn’t see this coming would be an understatement.”
Bell made by Paul Revere’s company moves to Boston
WESTBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — One of the 23 surviving bells cast by Paul Revere has been moved to a new home at Boston’s Old South Meeting House. Since 1849, the 865-pound bell has called congregants to worship at Westborough First Baptist Church, west of Boston. But the church closed in 2007 and was sold to the museum for an undisclosed sum. The bell was cast in 1801 and has the words “Revere & Sons” stamped on the side. It was moved Thursday, and Westborough residents had mixed emotions about it. The town tried to raise money to buy it, but fell short. The chairwoman of the Westborough Historical Commission says she’s sad to see the bell leaving town but says at least it’s not going far.

States stop circumcisions funds What to do if an airline changes Move saves Colo. $186,500 a year your flight plan amid a $1 billion
DENVER (AP) — A nationwide debate about circumcisions for newborn boys, combined with cash-strapped public health budgets, has Colorado taking sides with 17 other states that no longer fund Medicaid coverage of the once widely accepted procedure. For years, Colorado lawmakers considered doing away with funding for circumcisions under Medicaid — a move that would save the state $186,500 a year. Now facing a seismic budget shortfall estimated to be $1 billion at the beginning of this year, lawmakers finally approved the change, which takes effect July 1. “We were just looking at virtually every option and trying to decide what was absolutely urgent now,” said Republican Sen. Kent Lambert, a member of the budget-writing Joint Budget Committee. “I think 99 percent of it was completely economic.” The matter of circumcisions has gotten contentious in Califor nia, where San Francisco will be the first city to hold a public vote in November on whether to ban the practice. Jewish and Muslim families are challenging that proposal in court, claiming it violates their right to practice their religion and decide what’s best for their children.
Donald Berwick,administrator of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, speaks during a roundtable discussion about health care at Denver Health in Denver on Wednesday, while U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius looks on.
Supporters of the ballot initiative say male circumcision is a form of genital mutilation that parents should not be able to force on their children. Matthew Hess, the president of the group behind the San Francisco proposal, called the Male Genital Mutilation Bill, applauded Colorado’s move and said he hopes it will lead to a drop in the circumcision rate. “That’s a good thing, because paying someone to amputate a healthy functional body part from an unconsenting minor is not just a waste of taxpayer money — it’s also a violation of human rights,” he said. South Carolina is one of the most recent states to eliminate Medicaid payments for circumcisions amid budget concer ns. The change, which went
into effect in February, was expected to save the state about $114,800 a year. States that also no longer fund circumcisions through Medicaid include Arizona, California, Florida, Maine and Louisiana. Scott Levin, the regional director of the Mountain States office of the AntiDefamation League, said Jews are unlikely to be affected by the defunding of Medicaid payments for circumcisions. For them, the procedure is not perfor med by a hospital physician, but a mohel — a specialist trained in Jewish ritual circumcision. Levin said his group is more concer ned about places like San Francisco that are trying to ban the procedure because Jewish people see the ritual as one of their religion’s most sacred.
herds on grain, then label their meat “grass-fed.” “If you’re giving them grain, you should tell everybody you’re doing it,” he said. “The term is being used to misguide folks into thinking that a cow is fed only grass,” he says, his pale blue eyes gleaming, “when in reality it’s also fed 14 pounds of corn a day.” Standard organic farming allows four -stomach ruminants such as cows to be fed grain, while animals can be called “free-range” simply by having access to the outdoors. The government’s rules don’t always specify how big a space animals should have or whether it’s on pasture or concrete. “Outdoors, on grass, in the sunshine — that’s what I consider ‘free-range,”’ says McDonald, whose 220-acre farm nestles in a bucolic thumb of land framed by lakes in central New York’s Finger Lakes region. “I’m not saying tighten the regulations. I’m saying, buy from us or someone else but know the questions to ask. Cut through the fancy words, food marketed as ‘free-range, natural, beyond organic.’ It’s a sad testimony to human nature, but there are those who would say they’re organic when they’ve not even achieved the threshold.” Critics counter that McDonald’s back-to-basics model — heritage breeds on a niche farm determined to stay small — results in pricey food that’s out of reach of most Americans. Andy Alexander, 58, who runs an 800-sheep farm and sold McDonald his first ewes in 1991, commends him for drawing customers who “evidently enjoy the warm and fuzzy part and are willing to pay a premium. But alternatively produced food is not going to replace conventional agriculture as far as feeding the masses.” Susan Eckhardt, 42, who
owns 450-acre Brykill Farm in the Hudson Valley, says her pasture-raised Charolais cattle get handblended organic grain rations as well as hay “when it starts to get cold out, when there’s no grass! “All of this nonsense about how this is bad for them or toxic, give me a break!” she said. Wholesaler George Cubillas sympathizes with farmers who go to great lengths to raise animals exclusively on grass only to find they’re competing with rivals “using the grass-fed term loosely.” But he finds it’s hard to get restaurants to carry their products. “I could be a purist all I want but I have to make a living, and the bottom line is my (patrons’) customers prefer high-quality, grainfattened meat,” he says. McDonald counters that his beef is leaner and more flavorful while acknowledging that the fattier, grainfed version can be tenderer. After buying a hobby farm on the cheap 20 years ago, McDonald quit his career as a video producer a decade later and, with escalating success, is doing his bit to propel “fresh, local and above all clean food” farming into a postindustrial boom age. Nationwide, organic-food sales topped $26 billion in 2010, the Organic Trade Association says. Roughly 900 of New York’s 36,000 farms are certified organic and several hundred more like McDonald’s Far m match that description but dispense with certification. McDonald was resolute from the start on animal welfare. No antibiotics, hormones, synthetic vitamins. No notching of ears. No rings in the pigs’ snouts. No unnecessary stress. Or, to borrow his savvy motto: They have a great life but one bad day. It took much longer to make a living catering to “an even smaller group of consumers concerned not only with how an animal’s raised but what it eats,” he
The World Health Organization reported that circumcisions are one of the most common procedures performed on newborn males in the United States, but the practice is not as common in the rest of the world. About 75 percent of baby boys in the U.S. are circumcised, compared to 30 percent elsewhere, the organization said. The figures refer to non-religious circumcisions. Joanne Zahora, spokeswoman for the Colorado Department of Health Care Policy and Financing, which administers health care programs for low-income families, said the research her organization has seen shows that circumcisions are not medically necessary. But the procedure retains its supporters. Although the topic never became heated during the Colorado budgetary debate, some lawmakers spoke in favor of keeping the Medicaid funding. Among them was Democratic Sen. Irene Aguilar, a primary care doctor at Denver Health. “It’s really a pretty inexpensive procedure to perform, and so it’s just a little penny-wise and dollarpoor,” she said. Aguilar argued that circumcisions reduce the rates of urinary tract infections, penile cancer, and also lower the rates of cervical cancer for men’s sexual partners. She also said she worried that doing away with funding for circumcisions would be discriminatory for Jewish and Muslim people on Medicaid.

NEW YORK (AP) — It’s the ultimate travel bait and switch. You book a ticket on a non-stop flight but the airline cancels it a few weeks later, leaving a computer to automatically rebook you. Your new itinerary includes a layover, turning a fivehour trip into an eight-hour journey. With airlines cutting schedules due to high fuel costs, travelers who booked flights in advance now might find their plans upended. And it’s likely to get worse for the fall. Delta cut 3.5 percent of its domestic flights for September and 1.6 percent for October. US Airways cut 4.5 percent and 1.3 percent, respectively, and United cut 4.4 percent and 5.3 percent, according to Barclays Capital. That’s nearly 1,000 fewer flights than last year for just those three airlines. Sometimes connections are added to trips. Other times a two-hour layover is extended to a six-hour stop. To prevent a travel nightmare, arrive a day early if taking a cruise or attending a wedding. Also, provide an up-to-date phone number and email address when making a reservation so airlines can contact you immediately in the event of a schedule change. If your schedule does get changed: • Don’t just accept the computer’s picks. Call the airline and see if it has a better option. • Know your alternatives.
Go to the airline’s website and search flights by schedule. When calling to complain, asked to be placed on the specific flight you want. • Check other airlines. You might be able to get a refund and buy a new ticket on another carrier. However, the closer you get to your travel date the more expensive airfare tends to be. The airlines say such schedule changes are necessary to keep their operations flexible and profitable. They claim to make every effort to best accommodate those inconvenienced. The Department of T ransportation’s airline customer protection rules don’t address the issue, except to say that airlines should offer refunds for “a significant change” in departure or arrival time. What constitutes a big change varies between airlines. For instance, Delta offers refunds to passengers who don’t arrive within 90 minutes of their originally scheduled time. American offers vouchers for changes of more than one hour and cash refunds for changes of more than two hours. US Airways will refund a ticket if any schedule change is unacceptable to a passenger as long as it was purchased directly though the airline. Where can you find the rules? They’re buried inside a lengthy document called the “contract of carriage” that governs what responsibilities an airline has to passengers.
A technological leap forward to old-time family farming
ROMULUS, N.Y. (AP) — Peter McDonald assigns his 9-year -old twin boys the tricky task of erecting a mesh fence in one part of the family far m, then tramps across lushly carpeted fields for a daily evaluation of his grass-chomping cows and sheep. But first, there’s ... Hello! A hundred head-bobbing turkeys interrupt their foraging for bugs and cloverleaf morsels to hurtle across the pasture to greet him. Behind this wholesome agrarian drama with its “Old McDonald” echoes from long ago is a determined effort to crystallize the definition of grassbased livestock farming. A father of nine with a picaresque past and a famous brother in Hollywood, this 57-year -old McDonald allows his assortment of amiable animals to loiter outdoors all day over a dense mix of grasses untainted by chemical fertilizers. While his pigs and poultry get needed supplements of organic grain, his FinnSuffolk sheep, Belted Galloway bull, cross-bred Angus beef cattle and a Jersey milk cow named Rosie eat only grass. Eating large quantities of forage year-round is what cud-chewing animals are built to do, providing them all the nourishment they need to thrive and reproduce, McDonald points out. It’s better for the animals, the humans who consume them, and the planet, he says. “Feeding ruminant animals anything but grass is biologically, nutritionally wrong,” he says. Mechanized far ming methods that roared in after World War II steered many animals into crowded feedlots, shifting them to a diet of industrial corn to grow them more quickly and cheaply. McDonald’s gripe isn’t with conventional American agriculture, but with other small-scale farmers who fatten their
Peter McDonald walks with his 9-year-old son Philip after collecting eggs on his farm in Romulus, N.Y., May 12. says. After years of experimenting, McDonald dispensed with commercial accounts and took aim at a high-end for mula that relies on a mere 50 regular customers and a few hundred drop-ins at the Ithaca Far mers Market. While invariably more expensive — chicken is $5 a pound, beef $18 — McDonald says his prices reflect the food’s unsubsidized true value and are cheaper than choice cuts in upscale stores. Friends say his loquacious charm and eagerness to delve into detail are crucial in marketing his goods. “Not all farmers are anywhere as eloquent as he is in communicating why we want what he has,” says Laura Villanti, 46, a long-
time customer. Using selective breeding within the herds, McDonald manages 130 cattle, 40 sheep and 50 hogs. The pace will quicken in summer with the arrival of 5,000 broiler chicks and 350 young turkeys. All animals are rotated through 12 fields to break up the parasite cycle by natural means, but McDonald also leans heavily on modern tools, from plastic hoop houses to Internet tips. “Great innovations benefit us, but we don’t have to do what the corporate farmer’s doing — growing animals as fast as possible on the least amount of feed,” he says. “My way is nature’s way. You can’t make the far m 10 times bigger and expect 10 times the success. When you try to do too much, you cut
corners.” His iridescent-feathered turkeys, a Narragansettwild mix, are an uncommon sight liable to stop traffic as they throng at the farm’s rim alongside a twolane blacktop. Now, after a quiet winter cycle with only sheep, cattle, laying hens and rabbits to care for, his grass is springing up fast. There’s enough work for a young army, and McDonald sends his 11-year-old out early to check on a ewe pregnant with twins. “She had had one, but one was still in there,” Matthew recounts as his three enthralled younger brothers gather at the kitchen table between morning chores and homeschooling. “I’m glad I brought an extra pair of gloves.”

Feds seek life for mortgage fraud mastermind Prosecuters argue
the swindler is worse than Bernie Madoff
ALEXANDRIA, Va. (AP) — Federal prosecutors are seeking a life sentence for the man convicted of orchestrating a $3 billion fraud while running what had been one of the nation’s largest private mortgage companies. Defense lawyers, meanwhile, on Friday asked for a term of no more than 15 years for Lee B. Farkas, 58, of Ocala, Fla., the former majority owner of Floridabased Taylor Bean & Whitaker. Taylor Bean collapsed in
2009 when the fraud scheme unraveled, putting its 2,000 employees out of work. The fraud also contributed to the failure of Alabama-based Colonial bank, which had been one of the country’s 25 largest banks. Farkas faces up to 385 years after he was convicted in April on multiple fraud counts for masterminding what prosecutors say was one of the biggest bank frauds in U.S. history. In court papers filed Thursday, prosecutors argued that Farkas should receive the maximum and compared his conduct to Bernie Madoff and other mass swindlers.
A maximum sentence “will send the most forceful and unequivocal message to senior corporate executives that engaging in fraud and deceit in order to pump up your company or line your own pockets is unacceptable and will have severe consequences,” prosecutors wrote, saying that Farkas should receive at least a 50-year sentence. The sentencing memorandum notes that Madoff, in a $13 billion Ponzi scheme, received a 150year sentence even though he accepted responsibility and pleaded guilty. Farkas, on the other hand, went to trial and was convicted by a jury, and prosecutors believe he lied on the wit-
ness stand and continues to deflect responsibility. Farkas is the last of seven employees and executives at Taylor Bean and Colonial to be sentenced. The previous six all pleaded guilty and testified against Farkas at trial. All received prison sentences ranging from three months to eight years. The scheme stretched more than seven years and took a variety of forms. At first, Farkas and others at Taylor Bean persuaded mid-level executives to look the other way when Taylor Bean was overdrawing its main account by a few million dollars. Eventually, Taylor Bean double- and triple-pledged mortgages it

held to a variety of investors. Colonial was cheated out of more than $500 million, and two other banks — Deutsche Bank and BNP Paribas — lost nearly $2 billion. Taylor Bean and Colonial also tried to use their cooked books to try and obtain more than $500 million in funding in 2008 from the gover nment’s T roubled Assets Relief Program, though neither ultimately received any TARP funds. The government’s sentencing brief highlights the opulent lifestyle led by Farkas, which was exposed during his trial.

Robot institute attracts Obama visit President: Advanced
manufacturing industry can help spur job growth
PITTSBURGH (AP) — Need help defusing a bomb, mowing a lawn or scraping old paint? President Barack Obama saw robots that can do those tasks on Friday when he visited the National Robotics Engineering Center at Carnegie Mellon University. It’s one of eight research centers at the school’s Robotics Institute. The institute has been a global force in robotics development over the last 30 years. Its scientists have created robot vehicles to scout out war zones, medical robots, entertainment robots and even the SnackBot, which ferries snacks to people so scientists can study how humans respond to machines. After touring the facility Friday, Obama joked that “one of my responsibilities as commander-inchief is to keep an eye on robots.” But Obama’s main theme was that advanced manufacturing has the potential to fuel job growth. He called for a joint effort by industry, universities and the federal government to help reposition the United States as a leader in cutting-edge manufacturing. With growing interest from the military, businesses and consumers, the Carnegie Mellon Robotics Institute has more than 500 technical experts and a $65 million
NATION Treasury yields low
NEW YORK (AP) — Spooked by a spreading European debt crisis, traders again flocked to the safety of U.S. T reasury bonds, sending the yield on benchmark 10-year note to its lowest point this year. Bond yields declined Friday on fears that European banks are vulnerable to the debt crisis that is engulfing Greece and other countries. Moody’s warned of downgrading the credit worthiness of some Italian banks, which sent their stocks plummeting. The yield on the 10-year T reasury note fell to its lowest level this year, 2.86 percent. That’s down from 2.90 late Thursday. Its
annual budget. And its scientists aren’t just asking questions — they’re building robots that ask questions, too. Institute director Matthew Mason told The Associated Press that in the early days of robotics research the vision was for machines to do the dull, dirty or dangerous jobs that humans shun. “But now we think not so much of a robot instead of a person, but of robotic technology working with people,” Mason said. That could mean helping the elderly or sick cope with basic household tasks, or helping a doctor perform surgery. For Manuela Veloso, a scientist at the institute, a key step was building robots that are aware they don’t have all the answers. “They know the bounds of their ability. If they are not confident, they stop,” and then ask a human a question, she said. Her robots also learn that some people in the office don’t have the time or inclination to answer questions from a machine. “The robot plans not only with a model of the environment, but a plan of the people in the environment,” she said. Veloso now has two of the new designs — called co-bots for collaboration — and like humans who gossip about the best path to success at work, the co-bots compare notes. “The two robots exchange information when they learn about the humans, and they negotiate who should go where among the two of

New details emerge on Calif. pipeline’s leak
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — A California utility under fire for a deadly pipeline explosion has revealed that its employees dispute key information the company gave federal investigators about past problems on the gas line that ruptured. Pacific Gas & Electric Co. quietly released a document in May — more than eight months after the explosion killed eight peo-
them,” said Veloso, who is also president-elect of the Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence. She now sees robots — and artificial intelligence — in a completely new way. “Forget about these robots knowing it all,” she said. “I suddenly realized that intelligence was not about what you know. It was actually about knowing what you don’t know.” Her next project is training the robots to go to the Inter net for answers when humans can’t provide them. “I have a big vision of where we are going,” Veloso said of her robots. “They know what they can do and what they cannot do. That’s very beautiful.” Now the question may be how humans react to such new robots. Mason, director of the institute, says that there’s always been the issue of human trust in technology. “For many years a lot of us were reluctant to get into medical robotics,” he said, because of a fear that a robot mistake might cause harm to a patient, and thus tarnish the whole field. But Mason thinks that the success of robots that identify and dispose of bombs in the Iraq and Afghanistan wars has helped change views. “You can’t look at the wreckage without feeling grateful” that no human life was lost, he said.
ple and torched a San Francisco suburb — showing that the same transmission line had sprung a leak a few miles away more than a decade earlier. But the company revealed this week that its own workers’ accounts challenge the accuracy of that document given to the National T ransportation Safety Board. The conflicting accounts about the 1988 leak is just the latest development in a long string of concer ns about the company’s haphazard record-keeping in the wake of the September blast in San Bruno.
Tougher measures to protect sea turtles
NEW ORLEANS (AP) —
Federal regulators say they’re considering new restrictions on Gulf of Mexico and Atlantic Coast shrimpers because of the damage the industry is causing to threatened and endangered sea turtles. Regulators report that 379 sea turtles were found stranded between the start of the year and June 17 along the Alabama, Mississippi and Louisiana coastline. Turtle deaths have been linked to shrimp nets and trawls. The regulatory move by the National Marine Fisheries Service signals the next stage in a growing fight between fisher men and environmentalists over sea turtle deaths.

Jermaine Jackson honors his late brother TORONTO (AP) — Jermaine Jackson performed a nostalgic tribute concert Friday to his late brother Michael Jackson to mark the second anniversary of the pop star’s death as part of the 12th International Indian Film Academy festivities in Toronto. Dressed in a Michael Jackson-inspired outfit, complete with a red military-style jacket, V-neck white shirt, fitted black slacks and a black cummerbund with an emblazoned number “5,” the former Jackson 5 performer sang a medley of his brother’s hits including “Scream,” “Wanna Be Startin’ Somethin”’ and “Can You Feel It.” “This is a special moment in the show because it’s a tribute to my brother,” said Jackson moments before joining Indian singer Sonu Nigam to perform “This is It,” a song written by Nigam after the megastar’s death, which the singers dedicated to the pop icon. The pair performed at IIFA Rocks, a Bollywood-inspired concert and fashion show bonanza which is part of the academy’s three days of film, song and dance that culminates in Saturday night’s awards ceremony, often referred to as the Indian Oscars. IIFA Rocks also kickstarted the awards portion of the weekend by presenting some technical film awards in between bouts of fashion runway shows and high-energy musical performances. Romantic comedy “Band Baaja Baarat” and the action movie “Dabangg” led the pack, each scooping up three awards. Toronto’s Ricoh Coliseum was packed with excited Bollywood fans who could hardly contain their excitement when South Asian superstars including “Slumdog Millionaire” actor Anil Kapoor, Bollywood king Shah

Jermaine Jackson (left) and Sonu Nigam perform at IIFA Rocks during the 2011 International Indian Film Academy Celebrations in Toronto on Friday. Jackson performed a nostalgic tribute concert Friday to his late brother Michael Jackson to mark the second anniversary of the pop star's death as part of the 12th Indian International Film Awards festivities in Toronto. Rukh Khan and veteran stage and film star Anupam Kher took the stage to announce the winners. The cheering was so raucous when the venue’s camera monitors flashed on Bollywood superstars sitting in their seats that it sometimes drowned out the hosts. “When we’re speaking, please don’t put close-ups of big movie stars on the screen,” joked cohost Karan Johar, drawing
laughter from the crowd. Johar and co-host Anushka Shar ma alter nated between English and Hindi throughout the evening. Sharma was treated to a hug by Shah Rukh Khan, often referred to as “King Khan,” whose close-ups on the monitor screens drew the loudest cheers. “I’m tired of girls giving me a hug. I want a deep passionate kiss,” said Khan.
“You’re forgetting what would happen at home if that happened,” smirked Johar. Khan retorted, “We’re thousands and thousands of miles away. What happens in Toronto, stays in Toronto.” But in the end, he played it safe with a big bear hug for the bombshell Bollywood actress. Much of the evening’s music was provided by Shankar Ehsaan Loy, a musical super group consisting of Shankar
into the sleepy British town of Sandwich, Kent, to illustrate the tagline: “Walkers can make any sandwich more exciting.” In the days following the event, footage of the surprise appearances and the residents’ shocked reactions got spread around on sites like YouTube. The new prize for effectiveness, handed out Saturday at the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity, signals a shift toward greater accountability for ads. It also comes at a time when advertising agencies are fighting for every dollar they can get. Corporate marketing budgets were slashed by 8 percent during the Great Recession, and that
spending still hasn’t come back, according to Zenith Optimedia, a research division of communications giant Publicis Groupe. “You have to prove you got someone to pay attention and act, particularly in this economy,” said Chris Kempczinski, Kraft Foods’ senior vice president of marketing, who helped judge the category. The Walkers campaign did just that. To win in the effectiveness category, an ad had to show a proven impact on “consumer behavior, brand equity, sales, and where identifiable, profit.” Judges combed through more than 150 nomination for ms audited by PriceWaterhouseCoopers.
For Walkers, the U.K. office of advertising giant BBDO devised a one-day event featuring famous athletes and artists. Formula One winner Jenson Button drove a taxi around town, Chelsea soccer star Frank Lampard popped into a school soccer game, a Michelinstarred chef made sandwiches for everyone, and Anderson poured drinks at a local pub. The events were recorded by professionals and by locals armed with smartphones, who posted the photos and videos online. The spectacle delivered results. The videos drew 1.6 million views. Media outlets including the BBC and MTV reported on the event. Local supermarkets devoted more space to Walkers in the
Mahadevan, Ehsan Noorani and Loy Mendonsa, who also won an award for best background score for their work on “My Name is Khan,” starring Shah Rukh Khan. But the real musical superstars were British-Canadian bhangra trio RDB, whose energetic performances with singer Veronica and two players of the drum-like dhol, got the audience shaking their shoulders in their seats and cheering excitedly.
Ad for Walkers potato chips wins award at Cannes ELLEN GIBSON AP RETAIL WRITER
Recruiting a former Baywatch star to hand out free potato chips and beer may sound like a cheap publicity stunt, but for one British brand, it actually helped boost sales. Judges at a major award ceremony for the advertising industry in France this weekend evaluated marketing campaigns for the first time on how much product they sold, not just whether they made people laugh, cry or cringe. The grand-prize winner, a U.K. campaign for PepsiCo’s Walkers potato chips, brought Pamela Anderson and other celebrities
potato chips aisle. And revenue increased 26 percent on the sale of 1.5 million additional bags of chips, according to a case study compiled by the agency. “The unique and exciting nature of the campaign really captured the imagination of our sales teams and our customers,” said Jason Richards, vice president of sales for PepsiCo UK, in the company’s nomination form. Other work that won awards in the ef fectiveness category included a campaign for Old Spice men’s body wash, Gillette ads that appealed to men in India to lose their stubble and a Snickers campaign that says: “You’re not you when you’re hungry.”
Pop artist Ruscha channels Kerouac in latest work LOS ANGELES (AP) — Ed Ruscha has spent the last 50 years creating some of the most acclaimed works of the conceptual art movement, and he now reveals he’s had a roadmap for much of that time — Jack Kerouac’s seminal novel “On the Road.” The breakthrough book, written nearly nonstop over a matter of days on a 120-foot scroll, not only gave birth to a new style of prose, but sent thousands of artists, writers and others on a journey of selfdiscovery across the highways of America. “I first read it in 1958, I guess, and I felt like this is almost my story,” Ruscha recalled recently. “These restless people moving from one place to another and experiencing the highway and everything in between.” The artist was discussing “Ed Ruscha: On the Road,” an exhibition of his photographs, paintings and drawings that pay homage to the book that launched the beat generation. The collection is currently on display at the Hammer Museum in Los Angeles. Shortly before “On the Road’s” publication in
1957, Ruscha himself hit the highway, climbing into a car and heading west to Los Angeles to study art. Left in his rear -view mirror was Oklahoma City, where as a precocious fourth-grader, he’d painted a mural for his elementary school that commemorated the land rush of the 1890s. He would spend much of the next 10 years crisscrossing the country, just as his heroes of “On the Road” did. Like them, sometimes he’d drive, other times hitchhike. Along the way he would gain inspiration for such celebrated works as the paintings “Burning Gas Station,” “Hollywood Sign” and “Sex at Noon,” as well
as such photo books as “Every Building on the Sunset Strip” and “Twenty-six Gasoline Stations,” the latter a paean to the final days of America’s Mother Road, Route 66. He says now those peripatetic travels were inspired in part by Kerouac. “The attitude that he spread with this idea of young and restless has affected a lot of people, generations of people, and I guess I was one of them,” Ruscha said by phone from his Southern California studio as he took a respite from a day of painting. That influence led him to produce a limited-edition, illustrated version of “On the Road” in 2009 that included photos taken by himself and others. Then he decided why stop there. He went on to create eight large paintings (oil on canvas and acrylic on canvas), as well as nearly a dozen drawings and several more black-and-white photographs embossed on paper. The works, along with several framed plates of the 2009 book’s illustrated pages, went on display at the Hammer earlier this
month. The paintings of skylines, snowcapped mountains and the like are done in the detailed style Ruscha honed when he studied as a graphic artist at the Chouinard Art Institute (now part of California Institute of the Arts). They also incorporate the signature style found in his “word paintings,” as he includes phrases from “On the Road,” setting them off in precise letters that make them appear to hover over the landscapes he’s painted. Among the words he chose are descriptions from the book that reflect the fascination of its fictional narrator, Sal Paradise, with the idiosyncrasies he found on the road, including his encountering the word manana — Spanish for tomorrow. “Sure baby, manana. It was always manana. For the next week that was all I heard, manana, a lovely word and one that probably means heaven.” The Hammer exhibition, which runs through Oct. 2, is the first such display of Ruscha’s work for the Westwood museum, and its chief curator, Douglas Fogle, says he jumped at
the chance to put it together. “Ed’s a senior statesman of the Los Angeles arts community,” said Fogle. “For a very established artist he’s still making amazing work. And while it’s reiterating interest he’s had over the years, it’s still branching out and pushing into new territory.” Variously described as either a pop artist or conceptual artist, Ruscha dismisses such labeling, although he adds it doesn’t offend him. “If you call me a pop artist I’m proud,” he says jovially. “It stems from the word popular. The media and imagery and iconography from everyday life is what is the basis of my work, so I guess I’m a pop artist. But I don’t refer to myself as that. And then people have said, ‘Well, you’re really a conceptual artist.’ I’ll say, ‘OK, I’m that too.”’ He was one of a circle of artists, including Andy Warhol, who came to prominence as leaders of the pop movement through exhibitions at Los Angeles’ Ferus Gallery in the 1960s. Unlike Warhol, however, he spurned New York, choosing to stay in Los Angeles. He acknowl-
edges that likely limited his stature in the art world during his early years. “The art world at the time was all pretty much centered in New York and it was like LA was the Australia of the art world. I mean it was just so far away that it was not worth recognizing,” he says of the attitude critics had. “I knew that that was a falsehood but it wasn’t up to me to champion Los Angeles in any way, shape or form. It’s not my thing to do that. “ Instead he just kept working, turning out an amazingly prolific and eclectic body of work. “Today I’m painting on the side of a book and I’m painting the letters PDQ. Like pretty damn quick,” he says. When finished, it will likely be included in an exhibition planned for the Kunsthaus museum in Bregenz, Austria, next year that is to fill four of the museum’s floors with his art. Meanwhile, he continues to work in a variety of media, creating whatever comes to mind. “I never really know,” he says, chuckling. “There’s no real plan for anything.”
