Dems descend on city GOP gets out the vote JOE D. MOORE RECORD STAFF WRITER

Stickers, lawn signs and heavy doses of patriotic song and red, white and blue (particularly blue at this rally) can mean only one thing — election season is heating up. Wind and shade kept the temperature cool at Carpenter Park,

One area where the candidates split dramatically is Obama’s energy plan. Teague voted for the so-called “cap-and-trade” bill, saying his background in the oilfield helped him negotiate protections for small refiners and oil and gas producers into the final legislation.

CARLSBAD (AP) — Each candidate is a well-known businessman from Hobbs. Each built up a successful oilfield services company. Each has experience representing southern New Mexico’s sprawling district in the U.S. House of Representatives. But after the Nov. 2 election, only one gets the job as congressman. Will it be Republican Steve Pearce or Democratic incumbent Harry Teague?

That’s a question for voters in the 2nd Congressional District, a conservativeleaning region that stretches from the rangelands of Santa Rosa to the international border with Mexico and from the rugged badlands of Cibola County to

southeastern New Mexico’s oilfields. Pearce held the seat from 2002-2008 but relinquished it two years ago in his unsuccessful bid for New Mexico’s open Senate seat, losing to Democrat Tom Udall.

With Pearce out of the House race, Teague became the first Democrat in 28 years to win. Teague’s argument for another two-year ter m starts with his accessibility. He said since being sworn in some 22 months ago, he

NM family arrested in high-end thefts, reselling

SANTA FE (AP) — A Santa Fe family of five suspected of making as much as $5,000 a day from stealing expensive merchandise and reselling the items is in custody, police said. Officers conducted surveillance on the family for three months before making the bust, New Mexico State Police Lt. Eric Garcia said Friday. Two of the primary players arrested Tuesday are Jesus Garcia, 31, and Christella Garcia-Munoz, 26. Police say they are both brother and sister, and husband and wife. Also arrested were the pair’s mother, identified as Maria Munoz, and two other brothers, Raul MunozUribe, 31, and Roal MunozUribe, 32. Police say for the past few years, the five stole items from stores in New Mexico and Colorado and resold them out of homes, with Maria Munoz acting as a lookout for the others. Items included Coach handbags, Prada perfumes, Chanel sunglasses, laptop computers and Wii game systems. Thousands of items confiscated by police are worth an estimated $190,000. “These are the types of items that most people have to work hard and save

up for, but these people were taking things off the backs of others and hurting everyone,” Garcia said. Lead Agent Jesse Williams said the family has so far only been charged with receiving stolen property because the case is still ongoing but likely will face many more serious charges. All five have since posted bond from the Santa Fe County Detention Center but, according to state police, are still being detained on U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement holds. They are believed to be from Mexico, although they have made their home in Santa Fe for many years, police said. Williams said the family would frequent Santa Fe and Albuquerque stores and made at least one trip to Denver. The family would often make as much as $5,000 per day running the operation. “We’d see them load up their vehicle with items,” said Williams, and police would then go back and ask store clerks if the suspects had purchased anything. “They rarely, if ever, did, but they were getting the merchandise back to their cars in various ways.” He said no member of the family had jobs.

The family kept numerous receipt books logging what was resold out of their Santa Fe homes. Search warrants were served at both of those homes and two others, as well as for six vehicles this week. “This is just the beginning,” Williams said, standing next to a table stacked several feet high with baby clothes taken from one of the homes. “This amount of merchandise, and this was obviously the stuf f that hadn’t already sold, this is not something only five or six people were doing. There’s more.” Williams said the suspects would use a variety of techniques to steal the merchandise, but never broke into stores or homes. He said they would sometimes use back employee entrances to unload merchandise to waiting family members, or they would purchase an item and have other family members use the receipt to go steal the identical item without detection. Other times they simply stuffed merchandise into large bags and walked right out of stores.


experiences as an artist with the RAIR program and her recent study-trip to Florence, Italy. The exhibition will also feature process and finished art, including drawings, found objects, paintings, sketches and sculptures. “[It’s about] a sense of quietness ... of process — of something not just being one thing or another, but actually the togetherness of something,” Mytych said. “...nothing is going to shout at you ...or tell you exactly what it is.” Mytych, 40, was born in Elblag, Poland, in 1970. In 1996, she received her honors degree in fine art from Accademia delle Belle Arti, as well as her diploma of fine arts from the Art Institute LDM in Florence. Since 1992, Mytych has opened solo and group exhibitions in America, Australia, Germany, Italy, Poland and The Netherlands. Among her influences are Sandro Botticelli,

an Italian Renaissance painter, and Francisco Goya, a Spanish painter during the 18th and 19th centuries. “Her work is unique in the sense that she has a unique perspective towards her art — that she tries to capture an experience,” Caroline Brooks, assistant director of Roswell Museum and Art Center, said. “Sometimes when you see a painting, and it’s a narrative, it’s capturing one event that’s happening. [Her paintings] capture the event from multiple perspectives over a given period of time ... her process is very meditative.”

Polish artist to debut at RMAC

Every artist has a unique style — an unmatched energy and point of view that is displayed in their work — a modus operandi. Internationally acclaimed Polish artist Dorota Mytych is no different. “[Art is] not [only] about the style,” Mytych said. “It’s more about the concept of something ... it’s about a feeling. It’s about a human being putting a mark in time and space.” Mytych is participating in this year’s Roswell Artistin-Residency program, a 40-year joint-venture between the Anderson Museum of Contemporary Art and Roswell Museum and Art Center. RAIR program has brought hundreds of artists from all over the United States and the world to Roswell. Her exhibition, Gift of Time: Dorota Mytych, will open on Saturday, Nov. 13, at RMAC, 100 W. 11th St. The reception for Mytych’s exhibit will take place later this winter on Jan. 21. Gift of Time will feature works based on Mytych’s

tives to hospitals throughout the city and were not immediately located. Residents of Ciudad Juarez, one of the world’s deadliest cities, no longer go out much to celebrate because of a violent turf war between the Sinaloa and Juarez cartels, who frequently attack their rivals in bars, restaurants, drug rehab centers and other public places. One survivor of Friday’s massacre said the birthday boy’s mother had decided to hold the party at their home, precisely because she thought it was safer. The party spilled over into the neighboring home. The 16-year -old boy, who did not want to be identified, said an attacker entered one of the homes and asked partygoers about a car parked in front of the home, suggesting the killers may have been following the vehicle. He survived the attack by throwing himself to the floor and other partygoers fell on top of him, shielding him from the bullets. The survivor said the gunman he saw appeared to be about 20, wearing a baseball cap and carrying a pistol, and simply opened fire after no one answered his questions. Police found 70 bullet casings from assault weapons typically used by drug gangs whose bloody turf battles have killed more than 2,000 people this year. Salas said the attackers escaped, and police said had no immediate information on any suspects or possible motive. Salas

expressed outrage at the situation. The Interior Department condemned the killings in a statement and pledged “to help the efforts of state and local authorities re-establish order in Ciudad Juarez.” Some recent attacks on private homes have resulted in apparently innocent people being killed, either because a targeted person was at the gathering or because gunmen simply had the wrong address. Most recently, attackers stor med two homes on Oct. 17, killing seven people at a party and two others in another house nearby. And in January, gunmen massacred 15 people at a party in a house not far from the site of Friday’s killings. Most of the victims were teenagers, students and athletes. Investigators later said the attack was apparently carried out by Juarez cartel gunmen looking to kill allies of the Sinaloa cartel. There is no evidence the youths were the targets, and police said the killers may have hit the wrong house. The city was outraged by the January massacre, leading President Felipe Calderon’s government to vow to implement a new strategy for restoring order in Ciudad Juarez, where the army by then had replaced the disorganized, outgunned local police. In April, federal police took over public security duties from the ar my, and about 5,000 federal officers were deployed in Ciudad Juarez. The federal government also stepped up social programs to try to break the cycle of poverty, broken homes and lack of

opportunities that make the city’s youths a fertile recruiting ground for the gangs. Cash aid programs, neighborhood improvement initiatives, educational and job-training programs were part of the new strategy, together with ubiquitous convoys of blue federal police trucks patrolling “safe corridors” throughout the city. But in light of the recent mass attacks, it is unclear whether the new strategy for the city is having an effect so far. While the bustling industrial hub was known mainly throughout the 1990s for the grisly series of murders of more than 100 young women, the city’s youths now bear the brunt of the violence. In an interview with The Associated Press earlier this month, Calderon said the Juarez strategy is a long-term policy. And in the wester n state of Michoacan Saturday, the state’s newly appointed police coordinator was killed by gunmen, along with an aide, as they drove on a road near the state capital. Police coordinator Alfredo Yanez and a female aide died in the attack, the state attorney general’s office reported. There was no immediate information on the identity of the assailants or their motive, but Michoacan is the home turf of the La Familia drug cartel, which has staged a number of bloody attacks on state and federal authorities in the past. Drug traf ficking is a federal offense in Mexico, but federal police are trying to convince their state colleagues to play a greater role in the fight against cartels.

Ganalon said he just began auditioning for acting work last spring, and he’s only been in two commercials. “To me, Antonio is kind of more shy than me and he questions his own culture,” Ganalon said while still clad in a pair of blue overalls that suggested rural 1940s New Mexico. He said Antonio’s relationship to Ultima is “very close.” “Ultima knows he has the power to heal but I don’t think I knew I had it in me,” he said.

Beyond the “get out the vote” message, the day’s salient themes included: Republican candidates are beholden to big-business interests, and Democrats are on the side of the average New Mexican. The day’s only headtur ning comment was Stephanie Dubois’ bold accusation that her opponent for Public Regulation Commissioner, District 2, Patrick L yons, “is a crook.” She claimed that Lyons intends to sell public lands to moneyed interests and cited out-ofstate donors financing his campaign.

knowledge. Colon, a native of Puerto Rico who lives in New York City, said she hadn’t read Anaya’s book before she auditioned for the role. Upon reading it, she said of Franklin’s script, “He has managed to preserve the meaning of the characters; the essence of the story is all there. “I am not an expert in literature, but the way the author describes these people — people of the earth, people who are struggling, people trying to live their lives and encountering situations and relationships that cause a lot of tension — you realize they are flawed people, but you care about them,” she said. According to DiLeo, Anaya has been an adviser on the script. He has yet to visit the set, but she’s hoping to convince

him to play a cameo role if he does show up. “Everyone I encounter who has read the book — even if they read it 20 years ago in high school — has a high excitement for the project. It’s a story that stands out for people,” she said. The film will shoot in the Abiquiu area for a few days, and then return to Santa Fe for some interiors at Garson Studios on the Santa Fe University of Art and Design campus. DiLeo said the company is taking advantage of New Mexico’s film incentive program. About 140 New Mexicans are working on the film as either crew members or performers — including all the children who were working as extras at the elementary school this week.

AZ seniors scammed by ‘grandchildren’

COTTONWOOD, Ariz. (AP) — Arizona authorities are warning seniors about a scam in which thieves pose as grandchildren over the phone and ask for bail money. The Yavapai County Sheriff’s Of fice reported Saturday that three such scams have occurred since September last year. The most recent was on Oct. 18, when a 75-year old Cottonwood man got a call from a woman who identified herself by name as his granddaughter, told him she had been arrested in Canada and that she needed bail money. Shortly after, someone who said they were a police sergeant called and told the man to wire $5,600 in bail money to a contact in Florida. The man followed the instructions but later found out his granddaughter

never had been arrested and was safe at her home in Utah, and he was out $5,600. Sherif f’s spokesman Dwight D’Evelyn said two similar incidents occurred in September last year. He said such scams are dif ficult to investigate because suspects usually live outside the U.S. and throw out cell phones before they can be traced. D’Evelyn said detectives believe whoever is responsible uses social networking sites, such as Facebook, to identify family members

through profiles and photos. In some cases, people write about travel plans and specific family information, making schemes much easier. He warned people to tell their parents and grandparents about the scheme, and that any requests for money to be wired should be seen as a red flag. “Remember, these suspects specifically target seniors who may be more trusting and cooperate quickly out of concern for their ‘jailed’ loved one,” D’Evelyn said.

almost every weekend.” The folksy Teague also pointed to his ef forts to help veterans and support of federal energy programs aimed at creating jobs, whether in oil and gas production or through alternative projects that he said are per fect for souther n New Mexico resources. “Drill for oil and gas, use wind and solar, nuclear, algae, biofuels, all of those things,” Teague said. During his six years in Congress, Pearce developed a reputation as a staunch fiscal conservative. He said his consistent approach was to fight for small businesses, veterans and to approach immigration issues “with firmness but not harshness.” He said he took pride in his of fice’s constituent services, saying his staff “worked hard for people who were just being overpowered by the system.” Pearce said he returned to New Mexico 45 or 46 weeks each year and in some years spent 48 weeks in the district, “which is grueling.” The campaign has been characterized by bitter attack advertising on radio and television, reflecting the importance both parties place on the district as Democrats try to maintain their House majority.

By the time Steve Pearce arrived at the Republican nerve center at the intersection of Main and Second streets, his team had already mapped out the day’s walking path and prepped for debate tomorrow night. “We’re always staying positive and working hard,” Philip Matthews, Pearce’s travel assistant, said. Pearce is running against Rep. Harry Teague, D-N.M., for his old seat in the U.S. Congress. “We’re doing this all over the state,” the former representative said before heading out to canvass voting precincts. He added, “One of my favorite things is knocking on doors.” Sandra Cox, a volunteer for Mark Sanchez, dent Barack Obama’s administration for what he characterized as out-ofcontrol spending, saying at a recent forum in Carlsbad that he hopes to return to Washington so he can vote to repeal Obama’s sweeping health care reform. Pearce said the bill unfairly increased costs to businesses and patients. “If the gover nment is going to run a business, let it perfect the Post Office before it refor ms health care,” Pearce said, prompting cheers in a packed gymnasium. But Teague went against the Democratic majority by voting against the health reform bill. He said it didn’t do enough to lower costs “for the working people” and placed too many requirements on employees and employers, rather than on insurance companies. Teague said he arrived at his decision on the health bill “by talking to people in the district, by going to all the communities in the district.” “I can assure you that when we go to make an important vote like that, it’s based on New Mexico’s 2nd



the Republican candidate for the 5th Judicial District Court Judge, District 4, said she had every intention of walking “until my feet go out.” “He’s a very good attorney,” she said. “He’s very fair and I believe he’ll make a great judge.” James Duffey, who is running against Eloy Orgeta for Chaves County Commissioner, District 1, noted that although a Republican has never won in his district, he still is hoping to gain momentum. “There’s always got to be a first time for everything,” he said smiling beneath his cowboy hat. “If nothing else, I have fun doing it.”

Congressional District, not on the party,” he said. One area where the candidates split dramatically is Obama’s energy plan. Teague voted for the socalled “cap-and-trade” bill, saying his background in the oilfield helped him negotiate protections for small refiners and oil and gas producers into the final legislation. “We were able to be sure it didn’t cost the producer anything and cause any paperwork,” Teague said. “We got all the allowances for small business refiners so they wouldn’t have to pay anything extra.” But Pearce said the energy bill was a big mistake. He predicted it will cause electricity rates to soar and it could increase the price for a gallon of gasoline by up to a dollar. Pearce also said poor families will be hurt the most as they trim other expenses to pay for increased energy costs. Teague’s vote “was completely contrary to what is good for the district, but also completely contrary to what is good for America,” Pearce said.

Notion that all politics is local falls by the wayside

SANTA FE — “All politics is local.” It’s a famous warning by former U.S. House Speaker Tip O’Neill. It is an admonition not to lose touch with local voters and not to forget that local issues mean the most to those voters. But that maxim has taken a beating the past two elections and may suf fer even more in 2010. U.S. Rep Newt Gingrich gave it a big kick in the head back in 1994 when he led the effort that took the House and Senate from Democrats halfway through President Bill Clinton’s first term in office. Rep. Gingrich nationalized politics that year by writing a Contract With America, which promised to reform Congress, Social Security, welfare and tort law, balance the budget and give tax breaks to small business. The contract captured Americans’ minds. I’ve told the story before of New Mexico’s Rep. Steve Schiff tracking me down on a



rural beach in Hawaii with no phone and no TV to excitedly tell me that Rep Gingrich had developed an ingenious plan to take back Congress for the first time in four decades. It worked, as 367 Republican House candidates, incumbents and non-incumbents, stood on the steps of Congress and signed the contract. Historians tell us it was the first nationalized congressional election since 1918. President Bill Clinton took the bait, responding to the Contract and Republicans swept to victory, taking advantage of Clinton’s widespread unpopularity. True to their Contract, Gin-

Roswell Daily Record

grich & Co. introduced 10 bills implementing the Contract during the first 100 days of Congress. All of them passed except the bill imposing term limits. Most of the bills either died in the Republican Senate or were vetoed by Clinton. But then Clinton grabbed the advantage, introducing bills of his own implementing the Contract. Through a method he called triangulation, Clinton played Republicans and Democrats against each other. He not only succeeded in getting most of the bills passed but took credit for them and won reelection in 1996. Ten years later, Democrats managed to nationalize congressional elections, playing off the unpopularity of the two wars we were fighting, to take back Congress. Two years later, they widened their congressional margins with the help of Barack Obama’s call for change.

Now 2010, and House Republicans are employing Gingrich’s 1994 strategy with a Pledge to America. The Pledge isn’t as specific about what it will do or how it will do it if Republicans take back the House. Essentially it talks more about what it will undo, which is everything that has happened in the past two years. But it did succeed in drawing immediate reaction from President Obama, a big step in nationalizing this election. Since then, talk of the Pledge has subsided but there are numerous indications it is working. Democrats Martin Heinrich and Harry Teague began with campaign ads about all the good things they are doing within their congressional districts. Now they have been drawn into defending votes in Washington and their support for the Wicked Witch of the West, Nancy Pelosi.

Xenophobic efforts to portray Republican gubernatorial candidate Susana Martinez as a Tejana, and not one of us, appear to be backfiring. Out-of-state money is giving a big boost to Republican candidates since last spring when the U.S. Supreme court ruled corporations can spend all the money they want on political campaigns. Former vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin is giving a national flavor to campaigns, traveling around the country making endorsements. Delaware Senate candidate Christine O’Donnell is said not to even have a campaign office. Her entire campaign evidently revolves around good and bad reviews she gets from national appearances on television and radio.

Lyons for PRC, District 2

We’d be hard pressed to name another government body in the state which could challenge the Public Regulation Commission’s reputation for being a disfunctional operation. Since its creation it’s been plagued with problems. One of our commissioners left the PRC out of disgust with the political maneuverings which were taking place. There have been scandals involving commission members and with staff. It’s going to take some serious work to straighten out the mess the relatively new body has become. This is why we put our support behind Patrick L yons. During his time as the state land commissioner he’s proven to be an effective administrator capable of handling the complexities of interaction between government and the private sector. It’s going to be a long road to transform the PRC into what it was envisioned to become, but L yons has the intelligence and fortitude to get the job done. The Daily Record endorses Patrick Lyons for Public Regulation Commission, District 2.

Halvorson for Magistrate Court judge, Division 2

This is the type of race we’d like to see across the rest of the ballot. Two honorable candidates, Republican John Halvorson and Democrat Oscar Gonzalez, informing voters about their qualifications and staying away from the attack ads so prevalent elsewhere. We’re thankful to have two community leaders competing for this position. Both have the qualifications to serve in Magistrate Court. The deciding factor for us is that while he has only been a judge for a short time, Halvorson has successfully demonstrated he can do the job. We believe he should be kept in place and allowed to continue his service to our community. The Daily Record endorses John Halvorson for Magistrate Court judge, Division 2.

Ortega for County Commission, District 2

Eloy Ortega Jr. has years of experience in elected offices and has demonstrated he’s a dedicated public servant. Ortega ran up against term limits after being elected to the County Commission twice. After taking a break for a few years, he’s again eligible to hold a seat on the commission. In the interim, he’s been serving the community as a member of the Roswell School Board. Ortega is a proven element when it comes to local elected bodies. He’s well versed in the issues facing our county, he knows how county government works and we’re confident he’ll do everything he can to help the residents and businesses here. The Daily Record endorses Eloy Ortega Jr. for the Chaves County Commission, District 1.

Lethgo for county assessor

Political affiliation has no bearing on the operation of the County Assessor’s Office. Assessors are responsible for following the law and managing their staff. There’s little interpretation allowed. Ron Lethgo is by all accounts doing a solid job in his position and is a reliable county assessor. His office has received positive evaluations and it’s performing its function for county residents. The addition of a website for public research during his tenure is further proof he’s working hard to make information available to the public. We recommend that voters allow him to continue in his duties. The Daily Record endorses Ron Lethgo for Chaves County assessor.

Youth ChalleNGe Academy needs our help In the course of any given day, the challenges we face as a community seem to outweigh the resources that we have at our disposal. Whether we need more time to evaluate a given issue, talent to lead the charge, or treasures to finance the mission, there seems to never be enough. And to that end, you should not be surprised when I tell you that managing the city’s budget is no different than managing your family budget. When our desires exceed our revenues, trouble abounds. Just like at home, we are forced to slow down and prioritize our decisions. Before you mistake this as a


DEAR DR. GOTT: My mother-in-law is 70 years old. She never had a need to see an eye doctor until last week, when she scratched her eye. She found a local ophthalmologist who told her that she has Fuchs’ disease, something she had never heard of before. As a coincidence, I decided since I turned 50 recently that it was time for me to have my eyes checked. Lo and behold, and hundreds of dollars later, I had an exam and was told that I needed glasses. When I asked my eye doctor about Fuchs’, he told me briefly about the condition. Can you tell me more? DEAR READER: The outermost layer of the eye is known as the cornea. It doesn’t con-



prelude for bad news, let me tell you that our budget is in good order. Our revenue projections are conservative and our projected expenses are inflated … and that, my friends … is a recipe to success. Our collective gratitude goes out to those who oversee our finances and to our city councilors for


tain any blood vessels to nourish or protect it, but it gets its nourishment from the aqueous humor behind the eyes and from tears. Its purpose is to protect the eye from debris, dust and germs. In order for a person to see well, all five layers of the cornea must be free of any cloudy areas. Visual disorders are quite common, affecting about

paying close attention to the wisdom of our staff. My intent in beginning with some of the more obvious components to our budgetary needs, is to bring forth one of those more subtle dilemmas. When asked my three top priorities for Roswell, I briefly share a reminder of my campaign objectives: reduce crime, increase jobs and create an open dialogue between elected officials and those who elected us. Over the course of the past nine months, I find myself taking on traits of a seasoned politician. In other words, my top three priorities have gradually morphed into four. And, as

the math becomes a bit fuzzy, the outcome remains quite clear. You see, over the past nine months, I have grown to understand and appreciate the program known as Youth ChalleNGe. Youth ChalleNGe is a phenomenal opportunity for young men and women, from across the state, to receive a second chance in life. It is directed toward those who have been identified as “at risk” youth and who, without strong discipline and focus, will certainly find themselves struggling for the duration of life. This program provides hope for those

120 million people in the United States, causing them to wear glasses or contact lenses. The disorders to which I refer are known as refractive errors. They affect the cornea and include myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness) and astigmatism (uneven curvature of the cornea). Some of the more common disorders of the cor nea include allergies that may be the result of a prescribed medication, animal hair, eye makeup, mascara, pollen and more; pinkeye (conjunctivitis), which can be caused by a viral or bacterial infection; irritants in the environment; eyedrops and ointments; infection of the cor nea

brought on by bacteria or fungi from contact lenses that have not been cleaned properly; dry eyes, which can result from antihistamines, nasal decongestants, antidepressants and tranquilizers; herpes zoster (shingles) produced by the varicella-zoster virus; and ocular herpes, a recurrent viral infection caused by the herpes-simplex virus. A less common disorder is known as Fuchs’ dystrophy, a slowly progressing disease that ordinarily affects both eyes. The condition is slightly more common in women than in men and can be detected in its earliest stages when a person is in his or her mid-30s;

Which appetite are you working on today? Roswell Daily Record

More, more, more ... each day we get up we live life with one objective ... to satisfy our appetites. From the time we get up until the time we go to bed at night, our lives are an effort to get more. There are many needs we all have: food, sleep, love, family, financial security, sex, time, success, power ... and the list goes on and on. When we identify needs that we have, the question arises, “How much do we need to satisfy each need?” Sometimes, instead of how much is needed, the larger question is how much is enough? Oftentimes our appetites are never fully and finally satisfied. We are all a bundle of appetites. We live our lives seeking to fill our appetites. How you manage your


Continued from Page A4



appetites will determine the direction your life goes. The need to fill our ever growing appetites is best illustrated by a quote by billionaire John D. Rockefeller. In 1902 it is believed Mr. Rockefeller’s net worth was about 2 percent of the net worth of our entire country. He was once asked “How much money is enough money?” Mr. Rockefeller replied “Just a little bit more.” I am not saying that appetites are not good, only that they can dominate our lives and, without disci-

who are on the cusp of falling into temptation, and instilling in them the knowledge of who they can be and how they can take charge of the quality of their own life. Before my election, I had some insight as to the purpose of the program and the overall effect on their lives, as well as the effect on the lives in this community. Hosting this program over the past nine years has been not only an honor for the city of Roswell, but it has paid huge dividends. You see, a part of the lessons learned during the 22 ½ week cycle for any cadet, is to understand the value of community and the responsibility of making a difference within that community. Youth ChalleNGe has shared over 100,000 hours of community service to Roswell and we are a far better place because of its efforts. During each 22 ½ week cycle, successes are plentiful. Cadets tell of the things they learned, the friendships that were created and the positive direction that they are now committed to. At graduation, parents share the joy of the change that they see in their child and are grateful for the seed of hope that has been planted. In a future column, I would love to share greater details of the impact that the Youth ChalleNGe program has made. Today, I want to plant a different seed. I want to discuss the needs of this program, and what might be done to ensure its continuance. If in fact, our future is in the hands of our youth, then we must as a community, pay attention to how we support their development. When Roswell was selected as the host community, we put forth our best effort in meeting the physical accommodations that the program required. We extended a portion of the old Walker Air Force Base as a potential home. We made available living quarters that were once used by our military personnel, as well as admin-

pline, can ruin our lives or take our lives in a direction we don’t need to be going. I heard a speaker at a conference earlier this month say “God created us with appetites and sin has distorted them.” Another interpretation of this concept is that too much of a good thing can become a bad thing. Or an appetite created for good can be fulfilled poorly. The first example in the history of mankind took place in the Garden of Eden. Adam and Eve lived in paradise with domain over their world. They had the appetite for more. Satan tempted them and Adam, with an appetite to have more, yielded to temptation. His appetite for more brought him and mankind down.

istrative offices that have been on site for the better part of 60 years. And finally, to solidify the effectiveness of the cadet learning environment, ENMU-R opened its classrooms, cafeteria and campus for the betterment of the program. A great partnership … a huge success! Needless-to-say, the life expectancy of the living quarters has exceeded their intended use and the Youth ChalleNGe program finds itself in a position of survival. The money necessary to complete the perpetual repairs to the “aged” facility is draining the operational budget of the program, and outside the scope of possibility for the city to take on. Therein lies the dilemma and the cause for my priority list to be increased by one. I trust that you will agree that the future of this program should be a priority. The conventional wisdom is that the National Guard, the sponsor of the program, should be the sole party responsible for creating acceptable living arrangements for their cadets. Others believe that the state of New Mexico, through capital outlay and/or through infrastructure improvement funding should take care of the program that takes care of its “at risk” youth. Still others would like to see the city do more to support a program that, in return, gives us so much support. My prayer today is that we can find a resolution for these young men and women. The Youth ChalleNGe Foundation is working hard to identify funding sources and, numerous entities within the city are doing the same. I believe that the answer will be found somewhere within the readership of the Roswell Daily Record. If you’ve never experienced a mayor turn to the constituents and ask for help, then I’ll be the first. Many times, I’ve bragged about this community and our willingness to offer our time, our talents and our treasures. Please, let’s make this happen! Del

We get back to the question, how much is enough? The little voice in our head repeatedly whispers, “Just a little bit more, just a little bit more, just a little bit more ...” The response each of us has to this question is what drives each of our lives. We need to live our lives within a proper range for each of our appetites. For example, if we decide to quash our appetite to eat and choose not to eat, we die. If we decide to not bridle our appetite and eat as much and as often as we can, we add pounds that don’t need to be added. If we decide to try to live on two hours of sleep a night, we won’t be around long. If we decide to sleep 14 hours a day, we will substantially cut into otherwise productive time each day. If we are unmotivated to earn an income, we don’t have funds to live off of. If we don’t bridle the goal to earn income, we become workaholics and we will likely neglect family and other priorities in our life. It is all about appetites.

however, the disease rarely affects a person’s vision until the age of 50 or older. Fuchs’ occurs when the cells that line the inside of the blood vessels deteriorate for no apparent reason. With the continuation of the loss of cells, the endothelium cannot function ef ficiently enough to pump fluid out of the connective tissue. The cornea swells, and vision becomes distorted. Over time, the epithelium will take on fluid that will result in visual impairment, pain and a visual haze.

We often think that if we get to a certain point, we can once and for all satisfy an appetite. What we learn is that the appetite follows us each step of our lives. Fulfilling appetites is not a destination, it is a life journey. Whether we are 30 and trying to climb the ladder at work or 60 and trying to decide how many more years to work, the appetite for financial security is the same. Your failure to manage your appetites will allow them to control you. So how do you manage your appetites? Ultimately the brake that keeps any of us from over indulging is discipline. How much of it do you have? If I asked you to score yourself from 1 to 10 on a discipline scale with 10 being high discipline and 1 being low, what would your score be? Probably your score would differ depending on which area we are talking about. For example, your score in the appetite of food may be different than your score in the appetite of being appreciated. Your score in the appetite of In the early stages, a person may awaken with blurred vision that will clear as the day progresses. This occurs because the cornea is thicker in the morning as it retains fluids during sleep that evaporate during the day. With progression of the disease, the swelling will remain constant and vision will be reduced throughout waking hours. Treatment will begin by reducing the swelling with the help of drops, ointments or soft contact lenses. When the disease affects quality of life by interfering with normal daily activities, a corneal transplant might be in order. At this stage, the

sleep may be different than your score in the appetite of success and power. Regardless, our lives involve a series of appetites. My challenge to you is to first recognize the appetites that you have. Understand that having appetites is healthy. That is the way God made you. Second, and more importantly, understand the importance of controlling your appetites and not letting them control you. Most all of your problems can be solved by the person you see when you look in the mirror. Be careful how you respond to the little voice that constantly whispers “just a little bit more, just a little bit more ...” How you respond to this voice will determine your destiny one choice at a time.

Beware the Curbstoner

HEN Tamar Katz, 40, of Rockville, MD recently bought a 1997 Toyota Corolla from a classified ad, she believed she was buying someone's personal vehicle. But when she tried to get a state inspectioin of her vehicle, she learned it had been totalled and rebuilt, and illegal tags. Given the car's history, Katz's $8000 dollar investment was worthless. John Creel, investigator for Montgomery County's Division of Consumer Affairs, says Katz was a victim of a "curbstoner"-an unlicensed used car dealer who acquires bottomof-the-barrel autos, then sells them from parking lots, curbs and through the classifieds. Creel found that Katz's curbstoner had recently sold at least five other cars in a similiar manner. Curbstoning is prevalent across the country, says Creel, who estimates that in the Washington, D.C., area, as many as 90% of cars on curbs and in classified ads are sold by these crooks, who con buyers into believing they are selling personal autos. To avoid getting stung by a curbstoner, Jack Gillis, author of The Used Car Book 2000-2001 (Harper-Collins), recommends the following: • When responding to a classified ad, say, "I'm calling about the car in the paper"and note if the seller responds, "Which one?" • See if the title is in the seller's name. And if it is, ask when he acquired it. • Be wary of a seller who won't meet you at their home.

• Always insist on having a qualified mechanic inspect the car.

Support bond issues

Dear Editor: As the past president of the Community College Board of Eastern New Mexico University-Roswell and a member of the Roswell City Council, I am writing to encourage our citizens to cast their vote in support of General Obligation Bond issues B and D in the Nov. 2 General Election. These issues are vital to the continued improvement of our higher education institutions and libraries. Bond D will provide $9 million for higher education in Chaves County. Eastern New Mexico University-Roswell and New Mexico Military Institute will receive needed funds for new physical plant offices, maintenance and storage areas and a remodel of Lusk Hall respectively. Bond B will provide $7 million statewide to update collections, equipment and databases. The funding will provide $194,000 for Chaves County including, $48,780 for ENMU-R, $14,643 for NMMI, $59,886 for the Roswell Public Library, $46,732 for the Roswell Public Schools, $6,430 for the Hagerman Public Schools, $7,062 for the Dexter Public Schools, $6,154 for the Lake Arthur Public Schools, and $3,092 for Sidney Gutierrez Middle School. What is the cost? Minimal. For a $100,000 home, the cost for Bond D is $9.98 per year and the cost for Bond B is .45 cents. A good investment for the future of our children and citizens who benefit from a good education at a reasonable price. Please support these issues. Early voting has started. I believe an educated and trained citizenry is the solution to many of our domestic and economic problems. Thanks for your support. Sincerely, Steve Henderson Roswell

OPINION III ness, in my opinion we happen to be a wonderful city. I have had the privilege of being associated with people in all walks of life. My concern is the way that our proposed elected officials represent themselves in a manner in which they attempt to disrespect their opponent. I believe when running for public office a person should describe in detail what they can achieve while serving the people. Voting is an American privilege and the way these individuals are conducting themselves makes one wonder who to vote for. PS — My mute button on my remote control is worn out! Marvin W.

Texas money, N.M. water

Parade participation

Negative campaign ads

Dear Editor: I am a registered Republican but have to say I’m embarrassed to admit it. If I were a registered Democrat, I would be just as embarrassed due to all the negative ads our donations are paying for. Like most people I talk to, they are fed up with all the politicians wanting us all to believe how corrupt and pathetic their opponent is. Not once have I seen ads promoting what they are going to do about our economy, how they will stimulate jobs, what they will do about getting New Mexico out of 49th place in education or what can be done to protect our borders. There are so many critical issues this year and I still have no clue how the candidates intend to attack these problems. I understand the unwritten rule that says that a candidate can’t win without negative ads but it’s really getting ridiculous when you can’t get to know the candidate and what they intend to do about the important issues. What the candidates don’t seem to realize is that when you have nothing but negative ads, the voters don’t have any talking points to get excited about and this creates a huge amount of voter apathy for both parties. For my vote, I’m going to need to see some good old-fashioned stumping with emphasis on how you will solve our problems. William W Jones Roswell

Kids are thinking about costumes, candy and fun with their friends. Safety is the last thing on their minds. Therefore, we as parents and motorists need to be especially alert. There are many ways to keep your child safe at Halloween. The excitement of children and adults at this time of year sometimes makes them forget to be careful. Simple common sense can do a lot to stop any tragedies from happening. Parents: Before children start out on their “trick or treat” rounds, parents should set the rules: • Make sure an adult or an older responsible youth will be supervising the outing for children under age 12. • Plan and discuss the route trick-or -treaters intend to follow. It will be better to trick or treat in their own neighborhood and on well-lighted streets. Know the names and contact information of older children’s companions. • Instruct your children to travel only in familiar areas and along an established route. • Teach your children to stop only at houses or apartment buildings that are well-lit. They must never enter a stranger’s home. Do they know about “stranger danger?” • Establish a return time. • Tell your youngsters not to eat any treat until they return home. Throw away candy which is not wrapped by the candy company. It may be appropriate to contact local law enforcement if suspicious treats are found. • Review all appropriate trick-or-treat safety precautions, including pedestrian/traffic safety rules. Young trick-or treaters must be taught to walk, and not run, from house to house and

to not cross yards and lawns where they may trip and fall. • Talk about staying away from dark or fenced areas, where there may be dogs or other household hazards. • Pin some identification with the child’s name, address and phone number inside a pocket in case the youngster gets separated from the group. Motorists, too, must be especially alert on Halloween: • Watch for children darting out from between parked cars. • Watch for children walking on roadways, medians and curbs. • Enter and exit driveways and alleys carefully. • At twilight and later in the evening, watch for children in dark clothing. Finally, the Roswell community offers several Halloween and fall festival activities around the city. Parents might consider taking your children to these well-organized and well-supervised activities. Watch the Roswell Daily Record and other advertising venues for more information about these. We are grateful to Ken Oswald, safety manager at ENMR Plateau Telecommunications for safety topics such as these. We use quite a few of them. However, as always, we urge readers who may desire to learn more to look on the internet for more detail. Thinking about setting up a Neighborhood Watch? Call Richard and Steve at 622-SAFE (7233) for information. And don’t forget, the number for Chaves County Crime Stoppers is 1-888-594-TIPS (8477).

The New Mexico Activities Association released the 6-Man football state championship bracket on Saturday and both Lake Arthur and Valley Christian are in the six-team bracket. The Panthers (6-3) is the No. 3 seed after wrapping up the District 2-6M championship on Friday with a 71-24 win over Hondo Val-

ley. The defending state champs will host district foe and No. 6 seed Elida (54) on either Friday or Saturday at Panther Stadium. “Like I told the kids, we were sitting at that third spot being that we lost to Clovis Christian and Roy, so winning the district outright, that’s pretty much what we would be seeded,” Panther coach Jose Cruz Porras said of receiving the No. 3 seed.

See the entire NMAA 6-Man State Football Championships bracket on Page B2

The game with Elida will be a rematch of an Oct. 8 game that Lake Arthur won 34-25 after trailing at halftime. “I told the kids, ‘You know, through and through, that, that wasn’t you the first time we faced (Elida).’ We’ve got a week to prepare and we’ll take it

one game at a time,” Porras said. Valley Christian (4-4) secured the district’s other automatic berth on Friday by beating House and earned the No. 5 seed in the bracket. “Yeah, especially after starting 1-4,” Lion coach Brent Green said about


RUIDOSO — The Roswell girls volleyball team dropped the first game to Ruidoso 16-25, but won the next three by scores of 25-11, 25-18 and 25-15, Saturday. “In the first game, we started with a big lead and lost it,” Roswell coach Bobby Bates said. “We made some uncommon errors in that first game to lose the lead. But in the second game, we didn’t panic and got into a groove. Jessica Zamora served really well in that second game, scoring about 11 points in a row for us. “I thought our service stayed pretty consistent throughout. When they gave us the opportunity to finish the ball or get a big block, we took advantage.”


COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — The NMMI women’s volleyball team split two matches on Saturday. In the first match, the Broncos beat Air Force Prep in straight games, 2517, 25-13 and 25-20. Kailey Moorhead led the NMMI attack with 18 kills, while Agatha Gibbins chipped in with 8 kills. Despite the win, NMMI coach Shelby Fortchner said her team played inconsistently. “They played OK in the first match,” she said. “We just didn’t play at a very high level like we should have. We kind of played down. We were very inconsistent during the match and even though we won, it was a team that we should

have dominated from the beginning.” The Broncos’ second game was a see-saw affair with Northwest College. Although NMMI fell in 5 games (13-25, 25-15, 2325, 25-16, 8-15), Fortchner was more impressed with the loss than the win against Air Force Prep. “Our team played a whole lot better and much more consistent in the second one,” she said. “We haven’t played this well in a month. It was good to finish the day like that. We felt like we gained a lot from a five game match, even though we didn’t win.” In the second match, Daniella Montoya filled up the stat sheet, collecting 45 assists, an ace and 13 digs, while Andrea Soric contributed 12 kills and 28 digs.

Who needs the Fall Classic?

MIAMI (AP) — Once denied a championship by Miami, Jerry Stackhouse is resuming his chase of a title with the Heat. Stackhouse joined the Heat on Saturday, one day after the NBA championship hopefuls learned that they’ll be without injured swingman Mike Miller until possibly January. Stackhouse, who turns 36 next month, averaged 8.5 points in 42 games as a reserve with the Milwaukee Bucks last season. “This is a very exciting time in my basketball career,” said Stackhouse, a two-time All-Star who’s now with his sixth NBA club and worked out with the Heat on Saturday, the same day Dwyane Wade returned to full work with the team for the first time since straining his right hamstring on Oct. 5. “I am ready to compete at the highest level,” Stackhouse said. Stackhouse often said during the summer that he wanted a chance to join LeBron James, Wade and Chris Bosh in Miami, believing it would give him the best chance at winning his first NBA title. Stackhouse was with the Mavericks when Wade carried Miami to the 2006 title in six games. “He’s a very productive player,” said Wade about an hour before Stackhouse signed his deal.

NMMI’s Johnnie Garrett, right, swings at a pitch in the bottom of the first inning during the Broncos’ scrimmage against New Mexico JC, Saturday. “We have come a long way since Day 1 and that has been our goal since Day 1, to get better every time we go out,” said NMMI coach Bret Simmermacher. “We made some mistakes but we did a lot of good things too. Like I told my pitching staff, I thought we threw the ball pretty well.” In the 14 innings the two teams played, the Broncos scored 10 runs, while New Mexico JC put up eight. Vince Centeno had a two-RBI double and Garrett scored a run and had a hit.

RUIDOSO — The Rockets’ girls cross country team placed eightth at the 2010 Ruidoso Invitational with 190 points, while the Goddard boys earned ninth with 225. Carlsbad took home the girls title with 69 points and Clovis was No. 1 on the boys side with 64 points. Haley Griffin was the top girls finisher as she crossed the finish line in 24 minutes and 25 seconds, good enough for 27th place. Goddard coach Vernon Dyer said that an early miscue cost his girls. “The varsity girls made a mistake in the start and all but two were boxed in and never were able to overcome the start,” he said. Other top finishers for the girls were Jacquelyn Gonzales (29th, 24:27.53), Cheyenne Hewett (40th, 25:00.58), Jordan Hicker-

His time of 17:39.80 placed him eighth. “I told the runners today I wanted a good race, but do not do anything stupid because the district meet is next Friday and all our training is for that meet,”


Dyer said. “The boys did as we asked, finishing ninth in the team standings and ran careful in preparation for next week. Overall, the team did as expected and will do better next week.” Other top finishers for the boys were Peter Zelowski (26th, 18:43.19), Nick Fox (63rd, 20:22.72), Carter Latimer (84th, 21:36.05), Stevie Sisneros (94th, 22:13:40) and Jeremy Leaton (104th, 22:49.31).

If he gets to the point where he could run exclusively, he could be really good.” Other top finishers for the Bobcat boys were Joaquin Chavarria (81st, 21:24.11), Jorge Ortiz (87th, 21:54.61) and Joshua Starkey (109th, 23:15.12).

RUIDOSO — Marchez Coriz was the top finisher for the Colt boys, finishing with a time of 18:28.40, which was good enough for 16th. Other top NMMI boys finishers were Alec Jackson (50th, 19:43.82), Zachary Martin (97th, 22:32.01) and Ben Turner (100th, 22:38.22).

RUIDOSO — The Roswell boys team was led by Gustavo Sierra’s fourth-place finish. Roswell coach Jack Batson said that Sierra, who ran a 17:22.91, felt stronger this week. “He had a good race,” he said. “He had a good week of practice and he said he felt stronger than he did last week. He said that what we did this week helped him feel stronger.”



Eduardo Hernandez was the only other Rocket boy and he finished 20th with a time of 18:34.75. Xochitl Ortega paced the girls team. She finished with a time of 24:14.27, good enough for 24th. “She didn’t think she ran really well,” Batson said. “But she is finishing ahead of people now who had been beating her throughout the year.” Other top finishers for the girls were Diana Valencia (35th, 24:45.84) and Ealiza Villanueva (36th, 24:48.59). October III” to end. But the Phillies are going home early after leading the majors in wins for the first time in franchise history. “We’ve got a bright future,” Phillies manager Charlie Manuel said. “They’ve got a better offense than people think and they’re scrappy.” Wilson came in after Lincecum allowed consecutive, one-out singles. He got Ruiz on a liner to escape the inning. Wilson had to bat in the ninth after Brad Lidge intentionally walked Buster Posey to load the bases. He took three pitches before bouncing out to first base. “You can’t say enough about Wilson coming in, doing what he’s been doing all year,” Burrell said. Oswalt pitched six effective innings, masterfully working out of trouble throughout the game because he allowed nine hits and hit a batter. Oswalt gave up two runs — one earned — three days after losing Game 4 in relief. The three-time AllStar righty — the 2005 NLCS MVP with Houston — threw eight superb innings to earn the win in Game 2. Sanchez lasted just twoplus innings, allowing two runs and three hits. Sanchez, the Game 2 loser, had dominated the Phillies before this series, not allowing more than four hits in his five previous starts against them.

the final day of the regular season, will try for their first championship since moving to San Francisco in 1958. Slumping Phillies slugger Ryan Howard looked at a called third strike — a 90 mph slider at the knees — with runners on first and second to end it. San Francisco closer Brian Wilson got the final five outs, finishing off the Phillies’ bid to become the first NL team in 66 years to win three straight pennants. “Right now it’s heaven, but it was torture for that final strike,” Giants first baseman Aubrey Huff said. Giants ace T im Lincecum struggled in the eighth inning, pitching in relief on one day of rest after losing Game 5. But Wilson took over and got Carlos Ruiz to lineout to Huff for an inning-ending double play in the eighth. Benches cleared in the third inning after Giants starter Jonathan Sanchez hit Chase Utley with a pitch and then yelled at the All-Star second baseman for tossing the ball back toward the mound on his way to first base. No punches were thrown and nobody was ejected, though Sanchez was pulled. San Francisco used six pitchers, including four lefties. “We fought, we scratched and clawed,” said Giants left fielder Pat Burrell, who

Vega sets NMMI passing mark in 35-7 win

TUCSON, Ariz. — New Mexico Military Institute and Goddard alumnus David Vega set the Institute single-season passing mark on Saturday, throwing for 201 yards on 12 of 22 passing in a 35-7 Bronco win over Pima Community College. The NMMI freshman broke a record set by former Institute athletic director Dwight Burns in 1968. Vega threw a pair of first-half touchdowns to put the Broncos on top 14-0 early in the second quarter. On the first, he hit Sonny Duran for an 8-yard TD and, on the second, he hit Jontrel Colbert for a 28-yard strike with 13:53 left before the break. Tracy Craft’s 4-yard TD run later in the second quarter put NMMI up 21-0. Vernon Jones returned an interception 90 yards for a score in the third quarter and Colbert ran a score in from 8 yards out to cap the Bronco scoring. The Broncos moved to 3-6 overall and 3-3 in Western States Football League play with the win.


Durant hoping to lift Thunder into NBA’s elite

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Kevin Durant has already proven he is among the NBA’s elite players. He’d like to take his team to the same level. At age 21, Durant became the youngest scoring champion in league history last season, leading the Oklahoma City Thunder into the playoffs for the first time since the franchise relocated from Seattle. Every player in his supporting cast — the nine who made up Oklahoma City’s regular rotation — is back from last year’s roster that won 50 games and got within a last-second tipin of pushing the eventual champion Los Angeles Lakers to a seventh game in the first round of the playoffs. The Thunder could be on the verge of becoming a contender in the Western Conference, just two seasons removed from their 23-win debut in Oklahoma City. “I think we have confidence but we still know that last year is over with,� Durant said. “We know that we had a good year, we made it to

the playoffs, but this year we know that we’ve got to start back at square one. We’ve got to work hard every day to get better, continue to fight every day and work together as a team and continue to be one group. “I think if we do that, the sky’s the limit for us.� Durant spent the summer raising his profile around the globe, leading the U.S. to its first gold medal at the world championships since 1994. He also signed a contract extension to stay with the Thunder for another five years. Other than that, Oklahoma City had a relatively quiet offseason. Guards Daequan Cook, Morris Peterson and Royal Ivey were brought in to provide some experience to a youthful backcourt that features Russell Westbrook in his third year and James Harden and Eric Maynor, both rookies last season. Rookie center Cole Aldrich was the key draft day acquisition, coming over in a trade from New Orleans after he was taken with the No. 11 pick. “It’s a big year for us as a team,� forward Jeff Green said. “We’re coming off a great season last year, so there’s going to be a lot of spotlight on us and there’s going to be a lot of pressure on us to try to duplicate that.� It all starts with Durant, who averaged 30.1 points last season and said he believes he’s come back with improved ballhandling and post-up moves from his time playing at the world championships. Scott Brooks, last season’s NBA coach of the year, has said he wants Durant to cut down on his turnovers. Durant finished the preseason with an eightassist, no-turnover performance against New Orleans, the first time Oklahoma City had all five of its starters together. “It’s all about carrying it over to the regular season,� Durant said. “Hopefully, you’ll see more games like that from me.� Durant’s turnovers increased to a careerhigh 3.3 per game last season while his assist average stayed steady at 2.8 per game. He said he believes he’s done a good job of helping his teammates through leadership, but now he wants to be “really making them better on the court.� “He’s a talented kid that really, really pushes himself every day to get better. That’s what makes players,� Brooks said. “You don’t just wake up one morning and be a good player. You have to put a lot of time in.�

Idaho rolls past New Mexico State 37-14

MOSCOW, Idaho (AP) — Nate Enderle passed for 291 yards and three touchdowns as Idaho defeated New Mexico State 37-14 Saturday. The Vandals (4-3, 1-1 Western Athletic) raced to a 31-0 lead in the first half and finished with 392 yards offense, 304 in the air. New Mexico State (1-6, 0-3) scored with 7 seconds left in the half on Matt Christian’s 17-yard pass to Kyle Nelson. The game bogged down in the second half as both teams had trouble generating yards. Idaho was penalized nine times for 118 yards in the game while the Aggies were assessed 12 penalties for 99 yards. Enderle, who was 25-of-47, hooked up with Preston Davis, Mo Shaw and Kama Bailey for touchdowns and Princeton McCarty ran for 55 yards and a score. Idaho held Christian to just eight completions in 29 attempts for 134 yards. —————

To finally beat Vikings, Packers must sack Favre

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — He used to be the face of the franchise. Now the Green Bay Packers would like nothing more than to see Brett Favre get a face full of turf at Lambeau Field on Sunday night — within the rules, of course, under heightened NFL scrutiny of helmet-to-helmet hits. The Packers have faced their former quarterback twice since he joined the division rival Minnesota Vikings. The guy who led Green Bay to its only post-Lombardi Super Bowl win scorched them both times, as the Packers failed to sack Favre even once. “It’s the reason why we didn’t win,� Packers defensive lineman Ryan Pickett said. “You’ve got to hit Brett. You look at all the teams that beat the Vikings, and it all came down to the same thing. They all got pressure on him. So we realize we do have to get pressure on him. Got to make it uncomfortable for him.� Things already seem pretty uncomfortable for Favre these days, at least off the field. While the Favre-returns-to-Lambeau anticipation isn’t quite as intense as it was last year, Favre is now the subject of an NFL investigation into allegations that he sent lewd photos and suggestive messages to a female Jets employee in 2008 during his one season with New York. Favre has refused to address the allegations, which were posted on the website Deadspin, other than to say the league’s investigation will run its course and he is focused on playing the Packers. “I’m reluctant to say I’m excited about coming back,� Favre said. “I know how tough it is to play there. But it’s a huge challenge and we need a victory.� Both teams came into the season with Super Bowl expectations but injuries have played a role in their disappointing starts. The Vikings are 2-3 and haven’t won on the road since beating the Packers at Lambeau last Nov. 1. The Packers are 3-3 and coming off two straight overtime losses. To get back on track, they’ll have to put Favre on his back. Since Minnesota’s loss to New Orleans in the NFC Championship game, the book on defending Favre has gone something like this: If you can beat him up, you can beat him. “That’s what it seems like, looking at the film and watching some of the games I’ve seen on him,� defensive lineman Cullen Jenkins said. Favre, who has been sacked 13 times in the Vikings’ first five games, acknowledges he’s taking a beating. “I feel like I can endure it as long as something’s not broken or torn or whatever,� Favre said. “Do I like it? I’d much rather not get hit, but I think that’s part of my M.O., being able to withstand that and come back and make plays and not be concerned about it. If I spend more time worrying about who’s coming free, it’s going to be hard to complete passes and make plays.� And while getting hit isn’t pleasant for any player, especially a 41-year-old with nagging injuries, Favre says he doesn’t mind as long as the Vikings are winning.

“It always feels a little bit better if you win,� Favre said. “I can’t be concerned about it. I know that our guys, no one wants to let a guy come free or get beat.� That wasn’t a concern for the Vikings against the Packers last year. Generally free from pass rush pressure, Favre completed 69.5 percent of his passes in two games for 515 yards with seven touchdowns and no interceptions. The Packers have been a pretty good passrushing team so far this season, but didn’t manage a sack in an overtime loss to Miami last Sunday. They were without NFL sacks leader Clay Matthews, who returned to practice this week after sitting out with a hamstring injury. “The guy, he’s something else, man,� Pickett said. “We definitely need him. Our defense is not the same without him.� But defensive coordinator Dom Capers warns that the Packers can’t go all-out to put pressure on Favre. They can’t ignore Adrian Peterson, Percy Harvin — and now Randy Moss. “You just have to understand, what’s the value and what point in the game in terms of how much you’re going to pressure as opposed to how much you’re going to cover,� Capers said. “And yeah, you’d always like to keep the quarterback to where you can force him into making poor decisions and that type of thing. But they’ve got a lot of other weapons. If you start zeroing in on Brett Favre, the next thing you know, (there go) Peterson and Moss and Harvin.� Meanwhile, the Packers have to do a much better job protecting Aaron Rodgers, who managed to remain productive despite getting sacked a stunning 14 times in two games against the Vikings last year — although veteran left tackle Chad Clifton didn’t play in either game. “Those two games were particularly the worst that we have ever experienced or probably I have ever experienced in my career,� Packers coach Mike McCarthy said. “We’re a little healthier this year with our offensive line. Our offensive line is playing at a higher level. Also, our quarterback has another year of experience. But we’ve got to take care of their front four.� —————

In the books, NFL crackdown not a game changer

LAS VEGAS (AP) — The number was the same for both the wise guys and the people who bookies in this gambling city like to call squares. On the big electronic board in the sports book at the Red Rock resort, the Pittsburgh Steelers were 3-point favorites to win on the road in Miami, a spread that wouldn’t change much even if James Harrison made good on his threat to retire. The Steelers have always been good to this city’s sports books because of the large amount of action they attract. This year they’ve been good to bettors, who had their way with the books on four of Pittsburgh’s first five games. Telling Harrison not to go helmet-to-helmet on the Dolphins isn’t going to change that. Nor, in the eyes of people who make their living studying and analyzing NFL games, will it change the way the games are played. “I haven’t heard of any of the sophisticated bettors factoring it into their handicapping,� said Art Manteris, who oversees betting operations for Red Rock Station and several other casinos. The non-sophisticated bettors — aka the squares — cared even less. They were more concerned about Brett Favre’s state of mind for his prime-time clash in Green Bay than the crackdown the NFL is waging against hits to the head. “Taking three points with Favre would be a no-brainer if it weren’t for all that other stuff,� said one bettor filling out a parlay card at the Red Rock. While much of the talk in locker rooms around the league this week was that the NFL’s strict new policies on hits to the head would cause defenders to think too much and make defenses less effective, there’s not much talk among bettors and oddsmakers over what the changes might do to the point spread. That’s mainly because they don’t think the crackdown will affect games at all. “Obviously you could say maybe the Steelers will play a little more tentative, but I don’t see it,� said Jimmy Vaccaro, director of sports operations for the Lucky’s chain. “The Harrison thing, I almost think the refs will be easier on him because how can you invoke a rule in the middle of the season?� An unscientific sampling of bettors at the Red Rock found no lack of enthusiasm for the Steelers, the team most identified with the

Sunday, October 24, 2010 stricter enforcement of rules against hits to the head because of the two last Sunday that netted Harrison a $75,000 fine and led him to briefly ponder retirement. Hardly surprising because the Steelers have been covering spreads all season. And, while defense may win games in the NFL, the game would be affected more if Ben Roethlisberger didn’t line up behind center than if Harrison was suddenly ineffective because he was afraid to draw more fines or a suspension. That view may change if defenses suddenly lie down in this weekend’s games. No one expects that to happen, though, including the players who must perform if they are going to continue to get paid. “It’s kind of, for the lack of a better term, it’s kill or be killed,� Giants defensive end Dave Tollefson said earlier this week. “Obviously that’s the wrong way to put it with these situations, but are you going to be the hammer or the nail? That’s not good enough to just hit each other. You have to hit that guy and make a tackle after that, or he has to finish you. This a high-performance business. You have to do what they ask and do it well.�

Auburn outlasts LSU, Michigan St. downs Northwestern

Cam Newton and No. 5 Auburn won the SEC’s battle of unbeatens and No. 8 Michigan State used a furious rally to stay perfect, too. On a Saturday that promised to thin the field of unbeatens by at least two, the T igers and Spartans emerged unscathed. Newton solidified his spot as the Heisman front-runner, running for 217 yards and two touchdowns in a 24-17 victory over previously undefeated No. 6 LSU. Michigan State rallied from 17 points down to win 35-27 at Northwestern. The other matchup of unbeatens came later in the Big 12 when No. 3 Oklahoma played at No. 18 Missouri. But the Big 12 lost an unbeaten team before that when No. 14 Nebraska handed No. 17 Oklahoma State its first loss, 51-41 in Stillwater.

No. 5 Auburn 24, No. 6 LSU 17

AUBURN, Ala. (AP) — Cam Newton ran for 217 yards and Onterio McCalebb sprinted 70 yards for the go-ahead score with 5:05 left to lift Auburn to a victory over LSU. The host Tigers (8-0, 5-0 Southeastern Conference) moved on as the powerful league’s last unbeaten team. LSU (7-1, 4-1) finally had a Les Miles gamble backfire in an adventurous season. Newton didn’t do anything to set back his Heisman T rophy candidacy against the SEC’s top defense. He ran for two touchdowns and broke the league’s single-season rushing mark for a quarterback of 1,006 yards by Auburn’s Jimmy Sidle in 1963. He also topped Heisman winner Pat Sullivan’s 40-year-old school mark of 26 TDs rushing and passing in a season. Miles opted to go for it on fourth-and-6 from LSU’s 30 with 3:27 left. Jarrett Lee tried to scramble for it but was stopped well short by Neiko Thorpe.

ern’s Brian Peters tipped in the end zone.

No. 9 Utah 59, Colorado State 6

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Jordan Wynn threw for 321 yards and three touchdowns in drizzly weather and Utah thrashed Colorado State to stay unbeaten. The sophomore quarterback went 23 of 29 and reached the 300-yard mark for the third time in his career. With the game in hand, Wynn didn’t play after Matt Asiata’s rushing touchdown pushed Utah to a 38-6 lead midway through the third quarter. The Utes (4-0 Mountain West Conference) ran their record to 7-0 for the third time in the last seven years. In the 1994 and 1998 seasons, the Utes went undefeated and won BCS bowl games. Pete Thomas threw for 185 yards and the Rams (2-6, 1-3 MWC) were able to move the ball against Utah in the first half but could only net two field goals after getting inside Utah’s 10 twice.

No. 11 Ohio State 49, Purdue 0

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Terrelle Pryor threw for three scores, Dan Herron ran for two and No. 11 Ohio State showed it was over its Wisconsin hangover with a victory over Purdue. The beat-up Buckeyes (71, 3-1 Big Ten) also got redemption for a stunning 26-18 upset a year ago at Purdue, along with last week’s 31-18 defeat in Madison that toppled them from No. 1. Mission accomplished. Purdue (4-3, 2-1), which had won four of five despite losing its front-line quarterback, tailback and wide receiver, couldn’t muster anything against the Buckeyes, who were without leading tackler Ross Homan (foot). The Boilermakers didn’t exceed 100 yards in total offense until their final possession.

No. 8 Michigan State 35, No. 12 Stanford 38, Northwestern 27 EVANSTON, Ill. (AP) — Washington State 28

Kirk Cousins threw for 331 yards and three touchdowns, and No. 8 Michigan State rallied from 17 points down to remain unbeaten. B.J. Cunningham made an acrobatic grab for the go-ahead touchdown with two minutes left. Edwin Baker added a 25-yard scoring run and Eric Gordon intercepted Dan Persa to seal a wild win. Playing out of state for the first time this season, the Spartans scored 28 points in the second half. They trailed the entire way until Cunningham’s grab with two minutes left on a ball that he and Northwest-

STANFORD, Calif. (AP) — Andrew Luck threw for 190 yards and three touchdowns to help Stanford beat Washington State to post its best record after seven games in 40 years. Stepfan Taylor ran for 142 yards and two touchdowns for the Cardinal (61, 3-1 Pac-10), who hadn’t won six of seven to open a season since Heisman Trophy winner Jim Plunkett helped them do it in 1970 on the way to the Rose Bowl. Luck went 20 for 28 with touchdown passes to Ryan Whalen, Doug Baldwin and Coby Fleener — the fourth

time this season he’s thrown for at least three TDs. The Cougars (1-7, 0-5 Pac-10) lost for the third straight week to a ranked opponent, following losses to Oregon and Arizona. Washington State has lost 16 straight games against Football Bowl Subdivision teams and 14 straight in the Pac-10.

No. 14 Nebraska 51, No. 17 Okla. State 41

STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) — Taylor Martinez set a Nebraska freshman record with 323 yards passing and threw a career -high five touchdown passes, and the Cor nhuskers knocked Oklahoma State from the ranks of the unbeaten. Martinez, who came in trailing only Michigan’s Denard Robinson in yards rushing by a quarterback, showed off his arm while also running for 112 yards on 19 carries. Brandon Kinnie caught the first three touchdown passes of his career, including an 8-yard lob from Martinez that made it 51-34 in the final 5 minutes. Oklahoma State’s Kendall Hunter ran for 201 yards, but Nebraska (6-1, 2-1 Big 12) forced the Cowboys (6-1, 2-1) to go threeand-out on three of their four drives in the second half while pulling ahead.

Syracuse 19, No. 20 West Virginia 14

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) — Ryan Nassib threw a touchdown pass, Ross Krautman kicked four field goals and Syracuse scored nine points off turnovers in shocking West Virginia. Syracuse (5-2, 2-1 Big

East) snapped an eightgame losing streak to West Virginia (5-2, 1-1). The Orange made a remarkable tur naround on defense after being throttled at home by Pittsburgh 45-14 last week. West Virginia quarterback Geno Smith threw three first-half interceptions and was sacked five times. He entered the game completing 68 percent of his passes, but looked confused by Syracuse’s blitz. Syracuse failed to reach the end zone four times after moving inside the West Virginia 15 in the first half. But those ensuing field goals turned out to be enough. Neither team scored after halftime.

No. 21 Arkansas 38, Mississippi 24

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) — Knile Davis ran for 176 yards and three touchdowns, and No. 21 Arkansas waited out two weather delays to beat former coach Houston Nutt and Mississippi. The Razorbacks (5-2, 2-2 SEC) also got a 97-yard punt return for a touchdown from Joe Adams while rebounding from a loss to fifth-ranked Auburn last week. The game against the Rebels was delayed twice by lightning that sent fans and players scurrying for cover. Arkansas led throughout the game, but the Rebels (3-4, 1-3) twice pulled within a touchdown in the fourth quarter after two scoring passes from Jeremiah Masoli to Markeith Summers. Both times, however, Davis answered with touchdown runs for the Razorbacks — the first from 71 yards out and the second from 22.

Iowa State 28, No. 22 Texas 21

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Austen Arnaud passed for two touchdowns, Alexander Robinson ran for 120 yards and two scores, and Iowa State put another home loss on Texas. The Longhor ns, back home for the first time since a 34-12 loss to UCLA on Sept. 25, dropped a second straight in Austin for the first time since 1997. This one came against an Iowa State defense that had given up 120 points the previous two games. The Cyclones (4-4, 2-2 Big 12) got their first win over Texas (4-3, 2-2) with the defense forcing four tur novers by Longhor ns quarterback Garrett Gilbert.

Gilbert passed for two touchdowns and ran for a 2-point conversion in a desperate fourth-quarter rally that pulled Texas back from a 28-6 deficit.

No. 23 Virginia Tech 44, Duke 7

BLACKSBURG, Va. (AP) — Tyrod Taylor threw for 280 yards and three touchdowns and Virginia Tech rolled to a victory over Duke. Taylor was 13 of 17 passing and finished with 327 yards of total offense, putting him less than 100 away from becoming the school’s career leader.

Missouri sacks Landry, No. 1 Sooners, 36-27 Roswell Daily Record

COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) — Oklahoma’s stay at the top of the BCS will be brief. Thousands of yellow-clad fans stormed the field even before the end of the Sooners’ final, desperate play, hauling one goal post and part of the other to a local tavern, after No. 18 Missouri’s 36-27 victory on Saturday night. “It’s huge, it’s gigantic,” said coach Gary Pinkel, who had been 0-6 against the Sooners. “It’s a long time coming. I’m just real proud of our team.” Jerrell Jackson spun free from a knot of tacklers on a 38-yard reception for the go-ahead score that sparked a 16-point fourth quarter over the error prone and third-ranked Sooners and put a sellout crowd of 70,004 in a celebratory mood. “We’ve worked hard for this and all we had to do is believe,” quarterback Blaine Gabbert said. Oklahoma (6-1, 2-1 Big 12) committed three costly turnovers, out of character considering they had only five giveaways the first six games. Two of the turnovers led to 10 points and the other squelched a drive deep in Missouri territory. The Sooners also missed a chip-shot field

goal. An 86-yard touchdown return Gahn McGaffie on the opening kickoff put the Tigers (7-0, 3-0) on their way to ending a sevengame losing streak in a lop-

sided series dating to 1998. They beat the Sooners for only the second time in the last 21 meetings. Missouri is 7-0 for the first time since 1960 when the school ended 11-0 and

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Wisconsin coach Bret Bielema has a Hawkeyes tattoo on his leg and, apparently, a trick up his sleeve. The former Iowa player and assistant coach stunned his alma mater with a fake punt midway through the fourth quarter, and Montee Ball ran 8 yards for a touchdown with 1:06 left as the 10th-ranked Badgers rallied to beat the No. 13 Hawkeyes 31-30 on Saturday. Scott Tolzien threw for 205 yards and a touchdown and John Clay added a pair of touchdowns for the Badgers (7-1, 3-1 Big Ten), who pulled out a special teams gadget at just the right time. Punter Brad Nortman ran 17 yards up the middle into wide-open field on fourth down from his own 26 with Wisconsin trailing 30-24. The Badgers converted another fourth down with 3:23 left and Ball capped an 80-yard drive with the game-winning score, barely breaking the goal line with an outstretched arm holding the ball. “It was something we had seen on film,” Bielema said. “Once I saw them put the punt return unit there ... we gave them the call.” Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz said: “(Nortman) did a great job of being patient. A big,

big play in the game. It changed things around pretty dramatically.” The week after Wisconsin knocked off then-No. 1 Ohio State at home, the Badgers earned back-to-back wins over ranked teams for the first time since 2004, thanks to a call few in Madison or Iowa City will ever forget. “I thought the guys just responded really well to adversity,” Tolzien said. “In any big game you really got to keep your foot on that gas pedal, whether you’re up or you’re down you’ve got to just continue to be in attack mode. You got to be confident.” Iowa (5-2, 2-1) took a 3024 lead on Michael Meyer’s 40-yard field goal with 8:35 left and appeared set to take control. But Nortman’s run changed the game. Iowa’s final drive ended on the Wisconsin 35-yard line when Adam Robinson failed to get out of bounds before time expired. The Hawkeyes burned their final timeout the play before, after they had gotten a first down and could have spiked the ball to stop the clock. “We wanted to burn the timeout and just go from there. I guess we could have gone the other way. Might

have saved us 2 seconds,” Ferentz said. “I don’t think that was exactly the turning point in the game.” Ricky Stanzi had 258 yards passing and three touchdowns and Robinson added 114 yards for Iowa (5-2, 2-1), which suffered its first home loss of the season. What was expected to be a Big Ten slugfest turned into an offensive free-for-all in a sporadic rain. Wisconsin put faith in its offensive line and the 255pound Clay, who barreled 2 yards for a touchdown and a 17-13 Badgers lead in the third quarter. That seemed to suck the life out of Kinnick Stadium, but Derrell Johnson-Koulianos quickly woke up the soggy crowd. He got well behind the Badgers secondary and snagged Stanzi’s pass for a 45-yard touchdown. It barely phased Wisconsin, though. The Badgers went 51 yards on just four plays and jumped back ahead 24-20 on Clay’s 2yard TD run. Stanzi answered back with his third touchdown pass, a 6-yarder off play action to Marvin McNutt with 10:16 left. On the next play, Tolzien threw a pick to Brett Greenwood, giving Iowa the ball

finished No. 5 after beating Navy in the Orange Bowl. This one was especially satisfying, coming against a school that whipped them the last three meetings, including ending the Tigers’

one-week stay at No. 1 with a 38-17 victory in the 2007 Big 12 championship game and hammering them again 62-21 in the 2008 conference title game. Oklahoma became

another national championship front-runner to tumble in a road conference game, following Alabama and Ohio State, who were both No. 1 in the AP poll when they lost the past two Saturdays. That helped clear the way for the Sooners to be first when the BCS standings debuted last week, but that will change Sunday. Oregon will likely take the top spot. Second place could go to Boise State, Auburn or maybe TCU. Jackson had nine catches for 139 yards, both season bests. He totaled 18 catches the first six games, playing the pre-conference schedule wearing a cast from a broken left wrist. Artesia native Landry Jones threw three touchdown passes but was intercepted twice for Oklahoma. Aldon Smith returned one 58 yards to set up a touchdown in the first quarter and Zavier Gooden’s pick in the fourth quarter led to a field goal, but only after Missouri had first-and-goal from the 1. Jackson’s touchdown gave Missouri a 26-21 lead with 12:43 to go. Gabbert was lined up as a wide receiver on backup James Franklin’s 3-yard scoring run with 6:36 left.

on Wisconsin’s 26. But the Badgers held the Hawkeyes to Meyer’s 40-yard field goal and ate 7:29 off the clock before the winning score. Iowa, which came into the season with national title hopes, can forget about that now. But the Hawkeyes host unbeaten Michigan State next week with a chance to jump right back in the race

for the Rose Bowl. “The season’s not over. We have five games. We have a good football team,” Ferentz said. “A lot of things are going to happen and can happen.” Iowa let up just 17 points in its first four games at Kinnick Stadium, but Wisconsin had its way with one of the nation’s best defens-

es. The Badgers jumped ahead 3-0 on Philip Welch’s 33-yard field goal, but Hawkeyes responded on Robinson’s 1-yard TD run. Wisconsin defensive end J.J. Watt blocked the extra point to keep it at 6-3, though — and that came back to hurt the Hawkeyes later.

Mona M. Garlinger

A Resurrection Mass is scheduled for 9:30 a.m., Saturday, Oct. 30, 2010, at Assumption Catholic Church for Mona M. Garlinger, 80, of Roswell, who passed away Oct. 21, 2010, at her home. The Rev.

Conrad Kiewiet de Jonge

Funeral Mass is scheduled for 12:10 p.m., Monday, Oct. 25, 2010, at Assumption Catholic Church, for Engbert Jan Coen “Conrad” Kiewiet de Jonge, 89, who passed away Oct. 17, 2010, in Alameda, Calif. The Rev. Bill McCann with Assumption Catholic Church will officiate. Conrad was born Nov. 3, 1920, in Leiden, the Netherlands, to Albert and Anna Maria Kiewiet de Jonge. He was a longtime resident of Roswell, having met his wife, Benita Maria Kiewiet de Jonge (née Duran), there in 1959. Benita preceded him in death. Conrad spent his early years in the Netherlands with his parents, older brother Joost, and younger sister Wendela, all of whom have preceded him in death. The family moved to Switzerland in 1929, where his father had a psychiatric clinic. His mother died there in 1937, and his father remarried in 1938. Conrad was grateful for the guiding force of his stepmother, Yvette, whom he loved very much, and who also preceded him in death. Conrad attended the College de Nyon, then was accepted to Clark University in Massachusetts to study geography in 1939. He was a student there when World War II broke out, and voluntarily put his studies on hold to enlist in the Dutch Army Air Force. In 1941, he trained in Stratford, Ontario, Canada, and was subsequently deployed to Kalidjati, Indonesia (then a Dutch colony). His training group fled to Adelaide, Australia, as Indonesia fell to Japanese forces. They continued their flight training in the United States, first in Midland, Texas, and later in Jackson, Miss. Conrad was awarded his wings and became a B-25 bomber pilot in 1943, and returned to Batchelor, Australia. He flew some 40 missions with the 18th Squadron, then was attached to the USAF 5th Squadron as a C-47 copilot doing transport missions out of New Guinea. He returned to Balikpapan, Indonesia, in 1945 before being demobilized in 1946, after some 2,000 flight hours. He was awarded a Distinguished Flying Cross by Queen Juliana of the Netherlands in 1949 for his service during the war. After he was decommissioned, Conrad returned to his studies. He spent academic year ’48-‘49 at the Université de Paris in France before he returned to Massachusetts and completed his studies. He was granted a Ph.D. in geography by Clark University in 1951, and was a member of the Phi Beta Kappa honor society. Shortly thereafter, he accepted a job as a photogeologist with the exploration department of Shell Oil Company. He was stationed as an expatriate in their employ in Venezuela until 1959, when he was transferred to Roswell. It was while working for Shell


Oil that he met his wife, Benita, through the Legion of Mary. Having found his love, Conrad declined to move again for Shell and resigned from the company in 1962. He and Benita were married at St. Peter Church in August 1962. They moved to Santa Fe in 1963, where he taught briefly at St. Michael’s College, before he was granted a tenure-track position at what would become San Diego State University, and they moved to California. In 1964, their daughter, Annette, was bor n. In 1965, Conrad was naturalized as a citizen of the United States. He settled down as a resident of San Diego, though he traveled frequently back to Europe during summer breaks. He spent a sabbatical at the Université de Strasbourg in France in ’73-’74, during which time Annette and Benita lived in Madrid, so as not to be too far away. He and Benita suffered through Annette’s teenage years and many raucous slumber parties with good grace; Conrad is fondly remembered by Annette’s high school friends as the dad who would get up and dance with them. When Annette spent an academic year in Taiwan, in ’84-’85, he visited and they traveled throughout Asia together, including a trip to Indonesia, where he had been stationed during the war. The following year saw Annette living in Paris, and again they traveled extensively through Europe together, as well as to South Africa to visit relatives. Conrad retired as a full professor in 1990, after 27 years of teaching geography. He and Benita then returned to Roswell, where he continued to live even after her death in 1998, and where he was a member of Assumption Catholic Church. He moved to Alameda, Calif., in January, in order to be closer to his surviving family, daughter, Annette Kiewietdejonge; son-in-law, Edward Kenna; and granddaughter Kenna Marika Kiewietdejonge. He enjoyed what he called the “European feel” of Alameda, the friendliness of the people, taking his two poodles for walks by the beach, and getting to know his 6-year-old granddaughter better. He was taken from them all too soon. He is also survived by his nephew, Niels Kiewiet de Jonge, and wife, Barbara, of Farmville, Va., and their three sons, Erik, Chad and Karl.

Celine Dion gives birth to twin boys

NEW YORK (AP) — Celine Dion has given birth to twin boys, finally realizing her dream of being a mother again after a long struggle to become pregnant. A statement released by St. Mary’s Medical Center in West Palm Beach, Fla., said that the 42-year -old superstar singer delivered the boys Saturday afternoon. One boy weighed 5 pounds, 10 ounces, while the other weighed 5 pounds, 4 ounces. No names have been announced. Dion and her husbandmanager, Rene Angelil, are already the parents of one son, 9-year -old Rene Charles. But Dion had long wanted to have more children, and, like with her first child, she had difficulty becoming pregnant. She has spoken openly about her struggles, undergoing several rounds of in-vitro fertilization. Last year, after information leaked that she was pregnant, she confirmed the news, only to learn that the in vitro procedure was not successful. She had to issue a reversal weeks later. In an interview earlier this year, Dion said she hoped that by publicly sharing her struggle, she could help others. “If I help people through my voice, through my interviews, through what I go through, I do not want to change that at all,” she said. “I think it’s making a difference.” The boys came a month early. Dion was due to deliver next month, but earlier this week, it was announced that she was hospitalized as a precaution to make sure she was near her doctors as she prepared to give birth. Dion, a five-time Grammy winner who has sold tens of millions of albums, announced earlier this year that she would be returning to Las Vegas for a three-year run at Caesar’s Palace. She had a hugely successful five-year run in Las Vegas that ended in 2007.

50 years of commitment to the community

Assistance League past presidents, from left, Patti Mitcham, Lannie Dunham, Pat Medaris Shinn, Jackie Hess, Sherry Kochan, Helen Alpers, Lynn Allensworth and Dixie Floyd were recognized for their service at the organization’s 50th anniversary celebration Oct. 9 at the chapter house.

Assistance League of Chaves County celebrates five decades of volunteerism


Whether helping clothe schoolchildren, providing necessities for children removed from their homes or teaching children about art, the members of Assistance League of Chaves County are celebrating the organizations’ 50 years of volunteer work. Chartered in 1960 by Martha Featherstone, Assistance League of Chaves County was the organziation’s first chapter in New Mexico and only its 26th nationally. Today, the national nonprofit organization comprises more than 26,000 members in some 122 chapters and guilds. All together, the members have helped more than 1.2 million children, seniors and families and have returned $36 million to the communities they serve. The chapter recently celebrated its golden anniversary with an open house Oct. 9 at its chapter house, 2801 N. Aspen Road, where Mayor Del Jurney read a proclamation declaring the day to be Assistance League of Chaves County Day, and where member Mary Barela, of Hagerman, received an award for her work with the Operation School Bell award. With a membership of 78 active members, plus the 75 members in Assisteens, the auxiliary for teens, and 15 members in Las Lianas, or “the vine,” which is the professional women’s auxiliary, the open house celebrated the organization’s hard work within Chaves County and its communities. “(We’re celebrating the) spirit of volunteerism that links our founders through each generation up to the present (by) putting caring and commmitment into action by staffing and funding philanthropic programs that address community needs,” said Jean Maley, president of Assistance League of Chaves County. In 2009, the chapter tallied some 10,400 hours of volunteer work — a fact that Lynn Allensworth, the chapter’s public relations chair, was pleased with. She added that 100 percent of the monies raised stays in Chaves County for the benefit of its residents. “I am so proud of what we do,” she said. “I am glad of being part of this organization. ... I think a lot of people don’t realize we what do.” Assistance League’s main philanthropic program is Operation School Bell, which provides new clothing to elementary- and middle-school age children in Chaves County who lack adequate or suitable clothing.

Assistance League volunteer Karen Sims bags items for shoppers Jimmy and Linda Davis of Ruidoso who were in Roswell Thursday shopping. “We just love to browse,” Jimmy Davis said.

Through Operation School Bell, 603 children in Chaves County each received two pairs of pants, two shirts, three pairs of socks, three sets of underwear, a jacket and a hygiene kit. Each child also receives a gift certificate to receive a new pair

of shoes. “As a retired school nurse, I wanted to do something to help kids,” Allensworth, who has been in Assistance League since 2002, said. “I wanted to provide a service, mostly to students, and that’s what we do.” Members of Assistance League spend countless hours ordering clothing, organizing the dressing rooms at the chapter house — each room has three fitting rooms for kids to try on clothing — and dividing up items for the hygiene kits, which include a new toothbrush, toothpaste, a comb, shampoo and a washrag. Assistance League members also participates iin Kids Are Pretty Special, a program in which members donate diapers, wipes, clothing and car seats to children served by Court-Appointed Special Advocates, as well as Reach to Recovery, in which participants provide breast cancer patients with hand-sewn recovery pillow bags, and the Docent Arts program, in which members volunteer at the Roswell Museum and Art Center and present Art ‘N’ Part art lessons to elementary school children. Much of the funding for these philanthropic programs comes from Assistance League’s Thrift Shop, 100 N. Union Ave., which is open from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., Tuesday through Friday and frm 9:30 a.m. to noon on Saturdays from September through May. Jackie Hess, Assistance League member and past president, said the Thrift Shop, which offers clothes, books and household knicknacks, among other things, is crucial to what the organization does. “If we didn’t have the Thrift Shop, we’d be out of business,” Hess said, adding that Assistance League members also form close friendships while volunteering. “All of the women that are in the organization become such good friends. ... We work hard, but we have have fun.” Anyone who would like to donate gently-used clothing, books or small household items is welcome to do so. Bring the items by the store during store hours.

Dating can be damaging to young teens’ self-esteem

Q: Our 14-year-old daughter is asking us about dating, and my husband and I have told her she’ll have to wait until she’s 16 for maturity reasons. But this doesn’t seem to satisfy her questions. Can you help? We want her to know this is about love, not control, and that we want to help protect her from sexual temptation. JULI: Dating is one of those parenting issues that every family seems to approach differently. First, how do you define “dating”? Does it mean an exclusive relationship with a boy? Going out for actual dates? There’s a big difference between two kids who have a crush on each other and an exclusive relationship involving emotional and physical intimacy. I’d approach this situation by normalizing your daughter’s desire to “date.” A lot of her friends are probably “dating,” and having a boyfriend may be a big aspect of popularity. It’s great to get to know the opposite gender and it’s OK to like someone. However, explain to her that a lot of the things people do in dating relationships are harmful — such as frequent breakups, sexting, or sharing too much emotionally or physically. In addition to putting kids at risk for early sexual activity, dating in the young teen years interferes with the many healthy activities kids this age need to be doing. In fact, many kids start dating young just because they’re bored. Keep your daughter busy discovering activities that match her interests, like sports, volunteering or babysitting. Encourage her to develop healthy friendships with




many peers — guys and gals — rather than focusing her attention on one individual. Your daughter may still not be satisfied with that approach, and that’s OK. Most 14-year-olds think their parents are out of touch or too strict. We thought that about our parents, too. But in hindsight, she’ll be grateful for your protection during these early teen years. ** ** ** Q: Do you have a list of questions a father should be asking his daughter’s potential boyfriend? JIM: I had a friend, retired from the military, who would make sure that his shotgun was prominently displayed nearby whenever a suitor came calling on his daughter. While she was getting ready, he’d sit each guy down on the couch and say something along the lines of, “My daughter is more important to me than anything. I’d go to jail for her. I expect you to treat her with the utmost respect, or you will answer to me.” One guy jumped off the

Shisha mirrors on ‘Creative Living’

Information on critical business thinking, making kaleidoscope quilts, and insertion lace machine embroidery will be the featured topics on “Creative Living” on Tuesday, Oct. 26, at 9:30 p.m., and on Thursday, Oct. 28 at noon. All times are Mountain. Author Kivi Bernhard talks about the hunt for profit in a tough global economy. In his book, “Leopardology,” he compares critical business thinking with the hunt for the African leopard. Bernhard lives in Atlanta, Ga. Jean Gilles Dean is a quilting expert and she’s going to show how to create kaleidoscopes using large print fabrics. She also has samples of finished quilts and quilt tops using square and diamond blocks. She’s from Midland, Texas. Designer and digitizer Laura Waterfield is the owner of Laura’s Sewing Studio, and she’s going to demonstrate insertion lace machine embroidery, which creates an heirloom design that can be done on most fabrics. The secret to this technique is to use a wing needle, which she’ll show. Waterfield lives in Tomball, Texas. Information on shisha and quilting will be the featured topics on “Creative Living” on Tuesday, Oct. 26, at noon and on Saturday, Oct. 30, at 2 p.m. All times are Mountain. Becky Hanson will demonstrate a technique called Shisha, which involves tiny mirrors “sandwiched”

into fabric, and will also show how to make twisted cords on the sewing machine. She’s with Singer Sewing Co. in Lavergne, Tenn. Quilting expert and author Maggie Ball will talk about how to share the joy of quilting with the next generation. Her company is Dragon Fly Quilts, and she’s from Bainbridge Island, Wash. Shisha mirrors Small glass mirrors, or “shisha,” are used to embellish garments and acces sories in India and Pakistan. This decorative technique can add an interesting ethnic twist to wearable art projects, quilts and more. Materials needed: • Fashion fabric • Decorative threads • Glue stick • Shisha mirrors • Monofilament thread • Fabric marking pen/pencil • Tear-away interfacing • Zipper foot, open-toe foot or satin stitch foot Place either the open-toe foot or the Satin stitch foot on the sewing machine. Use a fabric marker to draw the opening for the mirror on the right side of the fabric. Draw this a bit smaller than the actual mirror size by about 1/8.” Sew a straight stitch around the marking line to stabilize the hole area (which will be cut in the next step). Set straight stitch length at about 1.0 mm and center needle

position. It may be necessary to sew only a few stitches at a time and then pivot, because of the small size of the mirror. Cut out the area inside the straight stitching, to form a hole. Place tear-away stabilizer under the fabric behind the hole area. Satin stitch in a circle, enclosing the raw edge. At this point, do any further stitch embellishment around the satinstitched area. Some suggestions are the feather stitch, blanket stitch, or free-motion stitching. Remove tearaway stabilizer from the center hole and from behind the fabric. Gluestick the shisha in place behind the created hole. Then, glue-stick a small piece of the woven fabric behind the shisha, “sandwiching” the shisha between the two fabrics. Place the zipper foot on machine. Thread machine needle with monofilament thread. Sew a short straight stitch around the outside of the satin stitching, to secure the shisha between the two fabrics. Sew very, very slowly to be sure the needle doesn’t hit the mirror. Trim away excess fabric from around the back of the shisha. “Creative Living” is produced and hosted by Sheryl Borden. The show is carried by more than 118 PBS stations in the United States, Canada, Guam and Puerto Rico and is distributed by Westlink, Albuquerque.

Mixing patterns is easier than you think in decor

BY MICHELE KEITH FOR THE ASSOCIATED PRESS One of the best ways to express your personality and add flair to your home is to incorporate a mix of patter ns into the decor. Whether you like florals, stripes, geometrics, animal prints, paisleys or textures — they too are patterns — a variety of them can make any room visually more interesting and comfortable to be in. Choosing and mixing patterns, however, can be intimidating. Perhaps the most important thing is not to be afraid to try, agree three designers asked for tips on choosing and combining patterns. Anything can be fixed, they say. COLOR “One of the secrets to successful pattern mixing,” says New York designer John Chadwick, “is continuity in the color palette. Having one shade in common and others that are similar is what ties them together.” A dining room he recently designed for a client has a large, meandering flower pattern on the walls and plaid curtains at the floorto-ceiling windows. While completely different from each other, they work together because leafy green and red dominate both. Chadwick completed the scheme with chair upholstery and a rug in a dusty gold that references the walls and curtains. Woven with a raised check effect, it adds texture, as well. Designer Cindy Raby of Oklahoma City favors deep, richly colored patterns for dark rooms: “They add drama, warmth and com-

fort.” But she also likes the way light colors and textures give rooms a crisp, airy feeling. “Dark or light can be right,” she says. GROUNDING AND BALANCE Also important when using patterns is “grounding” them with large swaths of solid color, says Chadwick — “perhaps a rug, wall or sofa, so the eye has something to focus on.” Los Angeles-based designer Joe Nye tends toward sisal and seagrass floor coverings. “They unify things, and having a casual quality produce a pleasing juxtaposition with a lot of upholstered furniture,” he says. Sometimes he repeats patterns in two adjacent rooms for “a nice bit of harmony.” And it’s key, he says, to “distribute pat-

terns evenly throughout a room so it doesn’t appear lopsided.” HOW TO BEGIN Magazines are filled with ideas for composing decorative schemes, as is nature. Another path, says Nye, is to study the vignettes at retailers like Crate & Barrel and Pottery Barn and see how they do it. He advises starting small with patterns — lamps, pillows and bibelots are good choices. “Once your eye becomes accustomed to these,” he says, “you can continue layering.” Artwork is another form of pattern. Not to worry if you’ve inherited a houseful of traditional furniture and you collect abstracts, Nye says. “Putting them together is contradictory in a good way, and can look terrific,” he says.

There’s a lot of art in Nye’s home, including the bathroom. Here he hung a large painting, striped the walls and added a small, decorative table, all of which share similar colors offset by white. IT’S WOR TH THE EFFORT “You can turn even the most ordinary box of a room into a showpiece with color and pattern,” says Raby. But she has found that people often are afraid to experiment. To ease them into the process, she advises a visit to a good fabric store. “Choose a variety of colors and patterns that you like best. It doesn’t matter why,” she says, “just so they appeal to you.” “Try to think out of the box. A touch of animal print, for example, can add excitement to a room,” she says. Then “take the swatches home, lay them on a table, mix them around, and eliminate until you have your favorites, usually three to five patter ns in compatible shades,” Raby says. Like Nye and Chadwick, she thinks odd numbers produce more interesting results than even ones do. And finally? “Choose one with a large scale — that is, the biggest pattern; a second that’s medium-sized; and a third, the smallest. If they’re all the same size the room will look too busy and overwhelming,” Raby says. One technique she likes is to use the largest-scale pattern for the sofa, the medium-size one for a chair, and the smallest for drapery panels and throw pillows.

couch and said, “I’m sorry, sir, but I don’t want to run the risk of letting you down!” and headed out the front door. I’m not suggesting you take this approach! But you could use more subtle means to convey the same message: that while your daughter still lives under your roof, she is primarily your responsibility and you expect her to be treated with the utmost care and respect. As for other questions, the tried-and-true “What are your intentions with my daughter?” is a good measuring stick. Try to find out what his interests are, how he’s doing in school, and what his own family is like. His answers to these questions can reveal much about how he feels about your daughter (and women in general), the degree to which he respects authority and his own value system. Realistically, a first-time interview is not the most effective means of evaluating a young man’s character. If he continues to pursue your daughter, invite him to spend more time with your family. That will better enable you to evaluate whether or not he’s a worthy suitor. ** ** ** Jim Daly is president of Focus on the Family, host of the Focus on the Family radio program, and a husband and father of two.

Group of 20 vows to avoid currency devaluations


Roswell Daily Record

GYEONGJU, South Korea (AP) — Global finance leaders, under pressure to show unselfishness in their economic policies, agreed Saturday to boost cooperation on rebalancing the world economy to help defuse tensions that had sparked fears of damaging trade conflicts. The Group of 20 vowed to avoid potentially debilitating currency devaluations and reduce trade and current account imbalances, amid a growing recognition that restructuring the world economy is necessary to accommodate the greater role played by fast-growing China and other developing economies. G-20 finance ministers and central bank governors met for two days in the South Korean city of Gyeongju ahead of a summit of their leaders in Seoul next month. Just two weeks ago, a G-20 meeting in Washington failed to resolve differences that had led to fears of a possible trade war that could trigger another economic downturn. Nations in Asia and other regions have been trying to stem strength in their currencies amid sustained weakness in the U.S. dollar out of fear their exports will become less competitive in world markets. At the same time, China’s currency, the yuan, has been effectively pegged to the greenback, provoking criticism that it is being kept artificially low and giving China’s exporters an unfair advantage. Asia relying less on exports for growth is seen as one of the adjustments that nations should make to ensure more stability in the global economy and markets. Stronger currencies, meanwhile, would make imported goods cheaper and boost local spending as a contributor to economic growth. The G-20, which accounts for about 85 percent of the global economy, said in a statement that it will “move towards more market determined exchange rate systems” and “refrain from competitive devaluation of currencies.” It also vowed to cooperate on reducing “excessive imbalances.” “I think it’s fair to say for the first time we see the major economies come together and recognize that excess imbalances that persist over a period of time that can threaten growth and financial stability need to bring about adjustments in policies,” U.S. Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner told reporters. The G-20 includes both rich countries such as the U.S. Japan and Germany as well as emerging ones like China, India and Brazil. It assumed the role of global economic leader following the 2008 financial crisis. The G-20 also released proposals to give developing nations more say at the Inter-

national Monetary Fund, part of what it described as an ambitious retooling of the lending institution to make it more representative of shifts in the global economy. The officials called for greater representation for emerging countries on the institution’s executive board by reducing European seats by two and shifting more voting power to developing economies and underrepresented countries. “It is a milestone in reforming global governance,” said Olli Rehn, economic and monetary affairs commissioner of the European Union, which also belongs to the G-20. “Today we have been rebalancing global growth and rebalancing political influence in global governance.” Since the 2008 crisis, the G-20 has pursued major policy shifts, such as coordinating economic and interest rate policies to spur growth and forging stricter regulation of banks and other financial institutions seen as responsible for the meltdown. Geithner had pushed in a letter to G-20 members for a commitment to polices that would reduce current account and trade imbalances “below a specified share” of gross domestic product “over the next few years.” But the G-20 statement said that large imbalances — such as China’s vast trade surplus with the rest of the world — would be “assessed against indicative guidelines to be agreed.” Geithner’s proposal had drawn resistance from export-reliant countries such as Japan. Japanese Finance Minister Yoshihiko Noda, who on Friday called the idea of any targets “unrealistic,” urged a cautious approach to any specific numbers, though he expressed support for “guidelines.” “There are many perspectives on the current account issue,” he said. “Every country has a different situation when it comes to surpluses and deficits. So we need to study this carefully.” Geithner said Saturday the U.S. was not pushing for any specific quantitative targets and that the country’s stance found substantial support within the G-20. He also made a point of praising China, which has drawn criticism on the pace of yuan appreciation, saying it was pursuing “very ambitious” changes to its economy and had in recent weeks taken steps to allow its currency to strengthen “more rapidly in response to market forces.” Geithner plans a brief visit to the Chinese city of Qingdao today for talks with Vice Premier Wang Qishan, according to Treasury Department spokesman Steven Adamske.

Obama trumpets Wall St. overhaul in weekly address WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama is war ning voters that Republicans seeking control of Congress would roll back his hard-won Wall Street overhaul bill. He says the GOP’s promised repeal of the new law would be a major setback for consumers and would bring back a financial system whose near -collapse led to the worst recession since the Great Depression. “Without sound oversight and commonsense protections for consumers, the whole economy is put in jeopardy,” Obama said Saturday in his weekly radio and Internet address. “That doesn’t serve Main Street. That doesn’t serve Wall Street. That doesn’t serve anyone.” The law, passed despite nearly unanimous Republican opposition, attempts to catch up to a financial system that has sped ahead of outdated regulation and rules that allowed banks, traders and others to take increased risks. “This was a bill designed to rein in the

secret deals and reckless gambling that nearly brought down the financial system,” Obama said. “And reform included the strongest consumer protections in history — to put an end to a lot of the hidden fees, deceptive mortgages and other abusive practices.” The measure promises limits on bank overdraft fees and an end to abuses such as retroactive interest rate increases on credit card balances. It came in the wake of a $700 billion bank rescue passed in the final months of George W. Bush’s presidency. While the bailout is credited with providing stability, it’s deeply unpopular with voters angry of taxpayer money being used to help prop up huge banks. Obama promised that the measure ensures that taxpayers will “never again be on the hook for a bailout.” Obama’s address came just 10 days before midter m elections in which Republicans have a good chance of taking over the House, if not the Senate. The financial reg-

ulation measure hasn’t been a central campaign issue. House GOP leader John Boehner of Ohio has called for the repeal of the measure, as have top Senate Republicans. But that’s unlikely even if the GOP should take control of Congress since Obama would still wield a veto pen. In the GOP’s weekly message, Sen. John Thune of South Dakota denounced Obama’s economic stimulus bill, overhaul of the U.S. health care system and plans to allow Bush-era tax cuts for wealthier people to expire. “We have learned the lessons not only of what hasn’t worked over the past two years, but what didn’t work the last time Republicans controlled Congress,” Thune said. “We are deter mined to take this country in the right direction.” Added Thune: “Are you better off today than you were two years ago?”

FDA rejects Arena Pharma diet drug lorcaserin

Arena Pharmaceuticals Inc. on Saturday said the Food and Drug Administration rejected the company’s application for lorcaserin, one of three drugs seeking to become the first new FDA-approved prescription weight loss drug in more than a decade. The federal agency’s rejection came after an FDA panel of experts on Sept. 16 recommended against approving lorcaserin in a 9-5 vote. Panelists raised concerns about tumors seen in rats in early stage testing, one of the factors that Arena Pharmaceuticals said the FDA had cited in a letter responding to the company’s application. After last month’s FDA panel vote, shares of Arena plunged nearly 47 percent, to $1.99. San Diego-based Arena currently has no drugs on the U.S. market. A group of Arena investors later launched a campaign arguing that the FDA panel’s review had relied on faulty scientific data. On Friday, as the full FDA’s review was expected to conclude, shares of Arena rose nearly 12 percent to close at $1.63. Arena said on Saturday that the FDA determined “that it cannot approve the application in its present form.” In addition to citing safety concerns about tumors, the FDA’s letter said the agency found that lorcaserin’s weight loss efficacy “in overweight and obese individuals without type 2 diabetes is marginal,”

Arena said. Arena said the letter stated that the FDA may require additional clinical studies if the company can’t provide further evidence to address the concern about tumors. The company plans to hold a conference call on Monday to discuss the FDA’s rejection. Arena President and CEO Jack Lief said in a news release that his company plans to request a meeting with the FDA “to obtain further clarity on the approval path and timeline.” Lorcaserin’s backers have argued it offers a safer way to shed pounds than older medications linked to dangerous side effects. Notable among them was Wyeth’s diet pill combination fen-phen, which was pulled from the market in 1997 because of links to heart valve disease. Lorcaserin is part of a new wave of weight loss drugs from several small drugmakers seeking FDA approval. However, in July, the same panel that recommended against lorcaserin also voted against approval for Vivus Inc.’s Qnexa after studies showed signs of heart palpitation and suicidal thoughts. Orexigen Therapeutics is scheduled to have its own drug reviewed at a meeting in December. Both of those drugs showed greater weight loss than lorcaserin, but the drug was favored by analysts because of its perceived safety.

New York AG sues FedEx unit over contractor issue NEW YORK (AP) — New York’s attorney general is suing Federal Express’ ground package delivery unit over its classification of drivers as independent contractors, rather than employees. The lawsuit by Attorney General Andrew Cuomo, a Democrat currently

running for governor, was filed Friday in New York State Supreme Court. The complaint argues that FedEx Ground Package System evades labor laws protecting workers by classifying drivers as contractors. The issue has been raised in other courts, and by attorneys

general in other states. A spokesman for Memphis, Tennessee-based FedEx Corp. says numerous federal and state courts have upheld the legality of the company’s contractor system. The spokesman says contractor drivers are well-compensated.

Tales of Katrina told through La. museum exhibit Roswell Daily Record

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — The room is lit by flashlights, an escape hole chopped in the roof with an ax lying nearby. Steps away, rising floodwaters seep down a levee wall; across the way, a stor m diary written in black felt marker on a housing project wall bears testimony to the hellish days after Katrina hit. Those items and more from the monster hurricane that battered New Orleans and the Mississippi Gulf Coast, killing more than 1,600 people, are part of a stunning new exhibit opening Oct. 26 at the Louisiana State Museum — “Living with Hurricanes, Katrina & Beyond.” The $7.5 million exhibit at New Orleans’ French Quarter museum recounts tales of the 2005 hurricane, its chaotic aftermath and recovery. It also explores lessons Katrina taught, and the science and technology arising since to counter future storms. “We see this as a game-changer for the museum,” said its director, Sam R ykels, who came up with the idea for the show days after Katrina hit on Aug. 29, 2005. “We had become a somewhat staid museum, but no more.” Galleries and connecting areas move visitors through four major presentations: New Orleans’ relationship to stor ms; firsthand accounts of people and predicaments of survival they found themselves in; a forensics gallery exploring the paths Katrina and Hurricane Rita took that year and

the science of how the levees failed; and a final section on recovery and the technologies emerging since to combat the destructive forces of nature. “We knew we wanted to do more than just show the storm’s destruction,” said Larissa Hansen-Hallgren of Experience Design in Boston, which helped prepare the show. “We wanted it to celebrate the city’s rebirth and the resilience of the people.” Museum officials returned days after Hurricane Katrina and began salvaging many of the items now found throughout the exhibits. “We had people who were dealing with damage to their own homes and yet saw the need to record the history around us,” said R ykels, who recalled how preserving items from the floodwaters was like “collecting from Atlantis.” The collection ranges from a ruined baby grand piano dragged from the flooded home of Fats Domino to a muddy teddy bear and the blue jeans that survivor Claudio Hemb wore the day after the stor m hit. The jeans are inscribed with Hemb’s name, his wife’s name and telephone number at the Houston hotel she was evacuated to — in the event he was killed. Then there’s the exhibit of the ax in the attic. The brand new ax was bought by a woman living near New Orleans just in case she and her daughter should need escape from their attic from rising

The Mabry Wall — a daily account written with marker on the walls of an apartment where Thomas Elton Mabry rode out the storm and over a month afterward — was saved just in time, said Jane Irvin, the museum curator of special projects. “We were one step ahead of the wrecking ball,” Irvin said. “But we knew we had to have that journal.” Working with the Art Conservation Center in Williamstown, Mass., the paint was removed

from the cinderblock wall and preserved. Video exhibits display footage of the storm, oral histories and the work residents and a huge group of volunteers have done assisting recovery. The exhibits reflect the museum’s mission to collect and preserve the state’s history, said Karen Leathem, museum historian.

The last miner to be rescued, Luis Urzua, center, gestures as Chile's President Sebastian Pinera, right, looks on after his rescue from the collapsed San Jose gold and copper mine where he had been trapped with 32 other miners for over two months near Copiapo, Chile, Oct. 13.

Humor helps Chile deal with miner crisis

SAN JOSE MINE, Chile (AP) — Minutes after a team of rescuers hoisted 33 miners to safety, President Sebastian Pinera hugged the men and gave them a thanks very much a la Chilena — one with a punchline. Pinera told the rescuers in Spanish that he wanted them to be the ones “who rescue us all on Judgment Day.” The rescuers, who had pulled off a harrowing, first-of-a-kind operation to pluck the miners from the depths of nearly a half mile, cracked up. If it seemed a strange moment for a joke to a foreigner, Chileans didn’t flinch. Heck, most probably enjoyed a good chuckle. Humor is all but the unof ficial national sport in this Andean nation. The saga of the trapped miners, which began when a mine collapsed Aug. 5, was no different. From top officials to the families of the miners, the jokes were a constant, even when it was far from clear that the men could be safely rescued. There were endless gibes surrounding the double meaning of the word mine, which in Spanish is “mina.” In Chilean slang, “mina” also means woman, a translation similar to English’s “babe” or “chick.” “No doubt, these guys had never spent so much time with a mina” roared a DJ on a radio station in Copiapo, the nearest town to the San Jose mine, a few days before the Oct. 13 rescue began. “Or so much time underneath a mina,” shot back a cohost. “You have a Jay Leno and David Letterman in every Chilean,” said Patricio Navia, a professor at New York University who is himself a native of the world’s longest nation, a factoid sometimes made into jokes related to male prowess. “Every Chilean could have his own talk

show.” Like any collective sense of humor or national identity, Chile’s is no doubt a reflection of its past: colonized by Spaniards from southern Spain, a region known for its sense of showmanship, and later home to British and German immigrants, people more known for dry wit. Add to that indigenous groups who survived colonization and isolation — Chile is enclosed by the Pacific Ocean on one side and the Andes mountains on the other — and the result is a deep sense of solidarity that includes a constant need for humor. “If we had needed people to pull up the miners, all 16 million Chileans would have been there pulling,” said Mario Kreutzberger, who is known as Don Francisco and is one of Latin America’s most famous personalities. “That solidarity is part of the Chilean sense of humor.” During a time of crisis, humor becomes a lifeline — a way to keep people from crying and to recognize that irony, sarcasm and double meanings are part of not just life’s joys, but also its pains. In early September, the Chilean government brought in a team of NASA scientists to help plan the rescue. Health Minister Jaime Manalich told journalists that a team from Chile’s space program had met with the NASA visitors. He paused, looked across the room for effect, and said: “You know, Chile does have a space program.” The comment provoked a ruckus of laughter, and lightened the mood of an otherwise serious discussion. Family members of the miners, who lived in anguish for months not knowing if they would see their loved ones again, also found ways to laugh while living in tents at the mine.

Rhode Island Graduate School of Oceanography are building websites tailored for students and the public to help understand scientific and technological advances in hurricane tracking and preparation for such storms. There will also be content on environmental issues, flooding, coastal restoration and emergency management. “We knew right after the storm we would be doing some sort of exhibit,” Leathem said. “It did so much to change the lives of the people here and the city.”

Maria Segovia, sister of trapped miner Dario Segovia, was particularly playful. She would sometimes grab a metal pole and pretend to do strip tease with a mocking erotic face, or take a Chilean flag and run around the campfire yelling as if Chile had just won the World Cup. Her endless energy lifted the spirits of those around her. “You have to laugh,” she said in early September. “There is just so much here we can’t control.” The miners found humor in their situation, too. In several videos, the men could be seen laughing and making playful signs behind each other’s heads. Manalich, the health minister, said the men shared “dirty jokes” with families through letters sent through small bore holes. Some were so raunchy that Manalich declined to share them with reporters. One of the biggest sources of humor came after the visit of former rugby players from Uruguay who after a 1972 plane crash survived months of isolation in the snow-covered Andes. While they waited 72 days to be rescued, to stay alive they were forced to eat the flesh of others who had died. Their story inspired the book and movie “Alive.” That flesh-eating survivors came to give a boost to miners who had almost no food for two weeks (from the Aug. 5 collapse until Aug. 23, when they were found alive) was not lost on Chileans. Spam messages with jokes about what the miners were eating raced around the Internet. One of the most memorable involved a supposed note from the miners: “We ate the Bolivian.”

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — Teenagers who trick-or treat in some cities could face something more threatening than any costumed zombie or ghost — like the long ar m of the law. Some cities across the country have adopted age limits — usually around 12 — for those who can travel door-to-door for candy and other Halloween fare. But while teen violators could face jail or fines up to $100, such laws are rarely strictly enforced. Take Mayor Mark Eckert of Belleville, Ill., near St. Louis. He led a push in 2008 to ban trick or treating by high school-aged teens in that community of about 35,000 people. His reasoning? He said he heard from too many single mothers and senior citizens complaining they were frightened by “6-foottall kids” showing up at their homes in search of candy. “When I was a kid my father said to me, ‘You’re too damn big to be going trick-or -treating. You’re done,” Eckert said. “When that doesn’t happen, then that’s reason for the city governments to intervene.” Some Belleville residents have complained about the ordinance, he said. But he added that he hears more often from those thankful for the age limit. The ordinance also prohibits those over 12 years old from wearing masks in public any other day of the year. In Virginia, several cities have had trick-or-treating age limits on the books since the 1970s. City officials from Meridian, Miss., to Bishopville, S.C., and Boonsboro, Md., have cut off the trick-or-treat age at 12. Still, of ficials cannot recall anyone ever being arrested or fined for being too old to trick-or-treat. If anything, officers will let teens off with a warning or a call to their parents, said Lou Thurston, spokesman for the Newport News Police Department in Virginia. “It’s not like we have officers that are patrolling the neighborhoods saying ‘How old are you?’ That’s not the point,” Thurston said. “The point is making the place safe.” Even if they wanted to, officials acknowledge the

laws are difficult to enforce. Still, they say putting the word out about the laws every year keeps too many teens from violating the bans. There’s no way to know exactly how many cities have such ordinances. The National League of Cities doesn’t keep track of ordinances, and states have left such matters up to the localities. Trick-or-treating evolved out of the late medieval custom of children asking for treats in exchange for praying for the dead of the household, said Hans Broedel, a University of North Dakota history professor and expert on early traditions. Tricks — usually vandalism and other debauchery by teens and young adults — were a big part of Halloween for a time until a conscious effort in the 19th and early 20th centuries to shift the celebration toward children, Broedel said. Excluding teens from trick-or -treating could make it more appealing to do other, less desirable, things, he said. “Trick-or -treating in a large part is embraced in this country because it serves to cut down on teenage vandalism,” Broedel said. “Certainly telling teenagers they can’t go trick-or -treating isn’t going to stop them from going out on Halloween and doing whatever.” John Womeldorf, a real estate agent in James City County, Va., has two sons ages 12 and 11. He said his 12-year -old is bummed that this will be his last year to trick-or-treat, but he looks forward to scaring kids who come for candy next year. Womeldorf said he doesn’t remember any such rules as a kid but see why they might be necessary now. “It is a different world than I grew up in so I guess we do have to have certain things like that in place to be enforced if needed,” he said. Still, Alisa Alexander Goetz of Jordan, Minn., questions why such restrictions are needed. Kids grow up too fast, she said.

’70s look largely mirrors modern tastes and times

NEW YORK (AP) — A new 1970s-style fashion muse, who means business during the day but can disco the night away, dominated the recent runway trends in the world’s fashion capitals. Gone from the spring 2011 collections previewed in New York, London, Paris and Milan, Italy, was the aggressive, tough woman designers had sent out to do battle with the recession. But, it seems, the fashion world isn’t quite ready to embrace a full, floaty free-spirit, either. The vision falls somewhere in between, which is the way most people live and dress. Starting this fall, there already is movement toward high-waisted, trouser-style pants, bow blouses and longer hemlines. The fabric moves away from the body instead of cinching it. Still, you can find skinny jeans and a short biker jacket if you want them. That will be a harder task in the coming months, and fashion insiders say women are ready for the change. With the looser silhouettes, white and tropical-hue colors, and a relaxed vibe, designers were showing both an optimistic attitude and a willingness to invest in design instead of gimmicks, they say. “This comes after many seasons of maximalism and decoration, but no one wants to go back to ’90s minimalism,” says Stefano Tonchi, editor-in-chief of W magazine. “This is romantic minimalism.” He adds: “When you look at fashion the last 20 years,

there’s a lot of backward movement. You can’t find too many meanings in why you’re going back — last year was the ’80s — but, in the end, this season has a contemporary attitude to simplify and take away the ornamentalism and give freedom and romance to clothes.” Catherine Moellering, executive vice president of the Tobe Report, a fashion retail trend consultancy, sees a little more purpose to the historical reference, though. “What was happening in society then is similar to many of the global issues we’re facing right now: It was a difficult economy, we were involved in an unpopular war, there were environmental issues,” Moellering observes. But when it came to the clothes of that era, women were happy with their choices, she says, and the spring outfits that came down the runway have potential to appeal to a large audience. In addition to the trousers, she expects shirtdresses, trenches, kaftans, printed scarves and floppy hats all to score well at retail. And, says Tonchi, can’t you just imagine the racks of long skirts at H&M? Shoppers, in fact, don’t have to wait for that to incorporate the trend into their existing wardrobe. Color registers very quickly with consumers, Moellering says, so start wearing anything in tangerine, purple or orchid pink. It doesn’t matter if the wearer is too young to remember Lauren Hutton, Ali McGraw or Bianca Jagger in their style heydays, she adds. There are plenty of teens and 20somethings who know their fashion iconography. Certainly, Yves Saint Laurent’s peasant collection was on the mind of many designers, which is familiar and relatable, and doesn’t have too strong of an urban voice, which can be a turnoff to some, says Tonchi. From an editorial perspective, the look is eye candy because it’s sexy and colorful, and lends itself to dramatic makeup and accessories, he says. But strip away those things, and you’ll find that the ’70s influence is already on the street every day, says Bridget Foley, executive editor of Women’s Wear Daily. It’s the ethos of the modern wardrobe, she explains. “When you see various retro things coming and going, the one with the greatest legs is the reference to the ’70s,” Foley says, noting that even the hippie looks so strongly associated with the 1960s actually went mainstream in the following decade. (The ’70s working girl-disco style wasn’t totally original, borrowing from the 1920s and ’30s.) “You take away the over -interpretation in hair and makeup, and those clothes make a lot of sense,” she says. “They are clean, wearable and pretty.”

Lace links Austria and Nigeria

A man passes various dresses and textiles in the exhibition called “African Lace, Austrian Fabrics for Nigeria” at the Museum of Ethnology in Vienna, on Oct. 21.

VIENNA (AP) — It’s an African fashion hit with an Alpine touch. Embroidered fabric from Austria has been used for decades to make eye-catching, colorful Nigerian clothing. Known as “lace” locally, the textiles are produced in Vorarlberg, a tiny mountainous region bordering Switzerland, and then transformed thousands of miles away into high-end attire traditionally worn at weddings and other special occasions. A new exhibit showcasing this link between two distinctly different countries opened late Thursday at Vienna’s Ethnology Museum and features a diverse collection of designs that range from delicate to flashy. “This exhibit is about a fabric that has made history in Nigeria,” said Barbara Plankensteiner, the Austrian curator of the show that will move to the West African nation next year. “In Nigeria, Austrian lace has been a household name and it has been something that has entered into our popular culture,” said her Nigerian counterpart,

Nath Mayo Adediran. Museum visitors can closely eye the fabric on display, which often features flowers. Some are even studded with crystals or adorned with velvet. Austrian embroidery producers discovered the Nigerian market by mere chance in the 1960’s when a businessman stopped over in the Nigerian capital, Lagos, and noticed that many women were wearing bright, embroidered clothes, said Markus Riedmann, who heads an association of Vorarlberg embroidery makers. He returned with Austrian samples and, over time, the relationship blossomed. Last year, the industry had a total turnover of approximately 55 million ($76.6 million), about half of which was thanks to customers in Nigeria and, to a lesser extent, other African countries such as Senegal and Ghana, Riedmann added. While exports began to decline in the 1990s due to competition from countries such as China, Austrian “lace” still stands for good quality.

Curly-Haired Muppet: Role model for little girls

CHICAGO (AP) — A plucky little muppet in a pretty pink dress, her brown hair a perky ’fro, is helping little girls — and their moms — to accept themselves just the way they are by loving their hair. The nameless muppet manages to trim away generations of yearning for long, silky locks with her song, “I Love My Hair” and has become an Internet sensation. Now her creator wants to give her a life beyond YouTube. “I really want to sit down with the writers and figure out what we can do with her and give her a name, and really expand her out,” said Joey Mazzarino, head writer for “Sesame Street,” who co-wrote “I Love My Hair” with composer Chris Jackson. (Jackson played Simba in “The Lion King”; Chantylla ‘Chauncey’ Johnson, who sings the song, also appeared in the Broadway show as Nala.) The video is being shared on Twitter, and posted on gossip sites and blogs. It is popping up on Facebook pages and discussed in the comments section on YouTube, where the original clip gets a steady stream of views. It was posted Oct. 12, and had more than 600,000 views on YouTube as of Wednesday, and tens of thousands more at other sites. The tune is breezy and bouncy, the lyrics simple and filled with pride: “Don’t need a trip to the beauty shop, ’cause I love what I got on top — it’s curly and it’s brown and it’s right up there. You know what I love? My hair!” With fast cuts, the Muppet changes hair styles — braids, pouffy ponytail, curly top. And no matter what the style, “I want to make the world aware, I love my hair,” she sings with happy confidence. “When I first did the song, it really

touched me because I really love my hair,” said Johnson. “My hair is very curly. And the thing I like about the song is that it shows the different ways I can do my hair.” The 13-year-old recently read for a part in a new production about Josephine Baker. “It struck a particular chord with African-American moms like me,” said author Denene Millner, a columnist for and the creator of parenting blog MyBrownBaby. “I think that at some point, if you have a little girl, we all deal with the day your child comes home from school and says, ‘I don’t want my hair to look like this; I want it to look like Annie’s.’ And Annie’s hair is blond and long and not what she has.” She says she is teaching her daughters Mari and Lila — ages 11 and 8 — to “love their hair as it grows out of their head.” Millner, like many African-American women, recalls the big plastic comb, thick grease and sizzling hot comb used on her hair when she was a little girl. “It was horrible,” she said. It was a similar discussion with his 5year-old daughter Segi over tight, curly hair that inspired Mazzarino to craft the song and video. He and his wife, both white, adopted the little girl from Ethiopia, who told them that she “wanted her hair to be long or blond like Barbie or a princess.” Mazzarino said this bothered him. “I thought it was because she had two white parents that she was going through this. And I didn’t know about the larger sort of issues with African-American girls until Chris Rock’s movie came out,” he said, referring to Rock’s 2009 documentary “Good Hair,” which takes a serious, and sometimes lighthearted, look at the black hair care industry and the history behind

concepts of so-called “good hair.” The idea of “straight” or “white” hair has

been an albatross for black American women and men, tied to slavery and racism, and a society that stripped them of pride by defining beauty in terms of only one ethnic standard. The lengths some women and girls would take to “look white” was poignantly framed by Whoopi Goldberg in her 1984 one-woman show on Broadway. She played a 9-year-old who pours bleach over her brown body and wears a white slip on her head as pretend long blond hair. The child wants to be on “The Love Boat,” a cruise ship sit-com from the 1970s-’80s. “I think there’s a larger part society can

sees and the Barbies she gets and the American Girl dolls she gets — even if they have brown skin, the hair’s not right. It’s all straight,” he said. “They do have a little curl but it looks like straight Caucasian hair that’s had a curling iron to it.” The day the video was shot, Mazzarino said, everyone felt the power of the song. “ “All the African-American women came down to (the set) to watch,” said Mazzarino, who has been with “Sesame Street” since 1990. “If there’s a celebrity, people will come down to watch. But really, it touched them.”
