Children make a mad dash in search of prizes at the Annual Free Easter Egg Hunt Saturday, at the Spring River Park and Zoo.

Hundreds of children broke out of the starting gate at the sound of an air hor n during one of Roswell’s most competitive sporting events: the annual Easter Egg Hunt at Spring River Zoo. Pastel tissue paper flew out of Easter baskets and parents cheered from the sidelines as kids scrambled to find plastic eggs with a golden ticket inside that would pay for prizes such as bubbles, kites, stickers, jump ropes and stuf fed animals. “Watching the kids, the looks they get on their face

makes us happy,” Mary Beardsley, a volunteer at the event, said. “That’s what it’s all about.” Parents who attended the event in years past say at one time the hunt was a little too competitive. “Parents were the ones picking up all the eggs for the kids,” Star Martinez Jr., said. Nancy Morales, who brought her grandson Tyler Eisenbise, 6, along with the rest of the family, recalls watching families argue and fight over the eggs at previous Easter egg hunts at the zoo. “It was serious to them,” Morales said. “A lot more serious than it needed to

be.” There were four different areas to hunt for eggs on Saturday: One section for 2 to 3-year-olds; another for 4 to 5-year -olds; and two more for 6 to 7-year -olds and 8 to 10-year-olds. Parents were not allowed in the hunting ground, except for the section for the 2 to 3-year-olds, who need help finding and picking up the eggs. Laurie Jerge, superintendent at Yucca Recreation Center, which was one of the hosts of the event, said parents were never allowed in the egghunting area, although See EGG HUNT, Page A3

Frilly bonnets and Easter finery the order of the day EMILY RUSSO MILLER RECORD STAFF WRITER

About 25 people dressed in their Sunday best marched in the first MainStreet Easter Parade since 1998 in hopes of starting a new holiday tradition. Children wearing colorful bonnets, white dresses

and matching tights competed for the Best Dressed or Best Bonnet Golden Egg Awards on the front lawn of the Chaves County Courthouse, while other parents pushed their children in decorated tractors, wagons or a kids four wheeler. “We’re starting our own

tradition, something special for the kids,” Rachel Watson said. Watson came with her mother, grandmother and two children, one of whom entered the Best Dressed contest. Mendy Mask says she wanted her child to be a part of the first parade, and entered into the Best

Push/Pulled Float. She and her fiancé carried their 5-month-old daughter, Hailey Hernandez, in a pink and white polka dot homemade egg-shaped baby carriage, which looked like a giant Easter basket. Hailey donned pink bunny ears, and a dress and headband with

pink bows. “It’s her first Easter,” Mask said. Peggy Seskey, president of MainStreet Roswell, said MainStreet hosted the Easter Parade only once before, 13 years ago, but never again because they See PARADE, Page A3

Why a bunny and an egg? Pope: Humanity product of evolution JESSICA PALMER RECORD STAFF WRITER

Have you ever wondered why a bunny, and an egg? Where does the rabbit get the eggs? Does the capering cottontail mug local chickens? The recently released movie Hop postulates that the rabbit actually produces the jelly beans. Is there another more profound meaning to the Easter bunny or Easter hare, which dates back to preChristian times? Both rabbits and hares are fertility symbols. Since birds lay eggs and rabbits and hares give birth to large litters in the early spring, these became symbols of the rising fertility of the Earth at the Ver nal Equinox. The word “Easter” is named after Eastre, the

Anglo-Saxon goddess of spring. A festival was held in her honor every year at the Vernal Equinox. In Greco-Roman myth, the hare represented romantic love, lust, abundance, and fecundity. Carvings of rabbits eating grapes and figs appear on both Greek and Roman tombs, where they symbolize the transformative cycle of life, death and rebirth. Rabbits and hares are prolific breeders. The saying “mad as a March hare” refers to the wild caperings of hares as the males fight over the females in the early spring. It is not surprising that rabbits and hares should become fertility symbols, or that their springtime mating antics should enter into Easter folklore. See BUNNY, Page A3

VATICAN CITY (AP) — Pope Benedict XVI marked the holiest night of the year for Christians by stressing that humanity isn’t a random product of evolution. Benedict emphasized the biblical account of creation in his Easter Vigil homily Saturday, saying it was wrong to think at some point “in some tiny corner of the cosmos there evolved randomly some species of living being capable of reasoning and of trying to find rationality within creation, or to bring rationality into it.” “If man were merely a random product of evolution in some place on the margins of the universe, then his life would make See POPE, Page A3

Dispose of unneeded prescriptions safely JESSICA PALMER RECORD STAFF WRITER

The Chaves County Sherif f’s Of fice, the Roswell Police Department and Drug Enforcement Administration will provide the public with an opportunity to tur n in expired and unused prescription drugs. The public can bring unwanted meds to The Roswell Safe Coalition and Neighborhood Watch at 426 N. Main St., on April 30. The service will be free and anonymous, with no questions asked. The initiative addresses vital public safety and health issues. Medicines in the home cabinets can be misused and abused. Rates of prescription drug abuse in the U.S. are high. According to the 2003 National Survey on Drug Use and Health, an estimated 4.7 million Americans use prescription drugs nonmedically. Presciption drugs are a source of danger for accidental poisonings and overdoses. Studies indicate that the

most abused prescriptions are obtained from family, friends and home medicine cabinets. Unusual methods used for disposing of unused medicines by flushing them down the toilet or throwing them in the trash present a potential safety and health hazard. Last year, Americans turned in about 121 tons of prescription drugs at nearly 7,100 sites across the nation. In 2010, Congress passed the Secure and Responsible Drug Disposal Act which amends the Controlled Substances Act to allow the ultimate user of controlled substance medication to dispose of it by delivering the unused meds to authorized entities. The Act also allows the attorney general to authorize longterm care facilites to dispose of their residents’ controlled substances in certain instances. The DEA has begun drafting regulations to implement the Act, a process that can take as long as 24 months. Until new regulations are in place, local law enforcement agencies will continue to hold prescription drug take-back events every few months.

The Roswell Fire Department received a rescue call for a horse, or in this case, a bird of a different color. The bar n owl, dubbed Hootie, was found inside the fireplace of Jim Kisselburg around 4 a.m., April 14. The retired police officer was alerted to the unexpected visitor by his Yorkie, Scooter-Andy. Investigation by this seasoned of ficer revealed a large owl that had fallen down the chimney and was trapped inside the fireplace. Not wanting to let the bird out of the cage, Kisselburg said he decided to keep the glass doors closed. The following day, Hootie silently disappeared up above the damper of the fireplace every time someone approached. “For a while there I


Some know Boyd Barrett as a real estate appraiser, but most people know him as the storyteller. Barrett has traveled across the state as a singing oral historian, performing musical dramas about the history of New Mexico for school children and adults alike. “A good story ... can teach more than anything,” Boyd, 57, said. “It can at least affect people more than ‘Here’s the facts.’ I definitely believe in the power of stories.” Barrett will be performing next Saturday at a local church to raise money for the Roswell Community Little Theatre’s building renovation project. “To bring quality entertainment — that’s what we want to do — we’re going to have to have the funds to do it,” Barrett said. Earl Morris, RCL T’s fundraising director, says the theatre has raised


$100,000 so far, but that it still needs money to install seats, build a stage, a rehearsal stage and a green room, and to level out the sloping floor. The show on Saturday will be split into two portions: the first half will be four short stories, and the second half will be one long “unusual” love story with a Roswell twist. Barrett will be performing his most well-known story called “Trouble in Lincoln County,” a tale about Billy the Kid and the Lincoln County War. He says he has performed this show thousands of times and was even commissioned by the Lincoln County Heritage Trust to perform it in schools, civic clubs and conventions across the state, including the Capitol Rotunda in Santa Fe. He also performed it at the National Cowboy Hall of Fame in Oklahoma City in 1994. One of the short stories is about the mysterious disappearance of Col.

thought he was a figment of my imagination,” said Kisselburg. Thus, the evidence the 28-year veteran of RPD required to prove the avian invasion was missing. For the next five days, Hootie reappeared in the fireplace just after sundown to perch on the grate on the floor. “Mr. Scooter -Andy and his trusty and not-so-brave sidekick, Dangerous Dagwood, would hear the intruder and make everyone fully aware of this unwanted critter’s contemptuous presence,” Kisselburg explained. Meanwhile, Kisselburg made calls to various agencies for assistance, without success. Finally he enlisted the assistance of Marge Woods, curator of Spring River Zoo. He also called the RFD, who responded Monday afternoon with a hook and ladder truck, a rescue

We live a mile and a half in the county,” said Kisselburg. “I was asked by my chief to see if we could help. My ladder crew and I went out to look at the situation,” Bergener said. The rescue took more than an hour as Woods and RFD decided the best approach. The situation was complicated by the presence of a bees nest inside the chimney. Firefighters first tried to get at the bird from above. “It was extremely tall chimney, 24 feet, and we couldn’t reach him. Finally we went inside the house and my guy reached up and grabbed him. It was a last-ditch effort,” Bergener said. “I’m proud of my guy, Bill

Schwalm,” he said. “They got him out despite the fact that there were bees in the chimney,” said Woods. “The bar n owl was a fledgling. He was traumatized, but not too dehydrated after five days in a chimney. I gave him fluids and left him alone,” she said. The next day he was posturing, a rocking dance barn owls use to show they are not intimidated. Woods reported that Hootie is eating well. “We will actually have gotten four days’ of groceries in him since Monday.” Hootie was released back to the wild early Friday morning. “He was back to clacking and hissing like a healthy barn owl should,” Woods said. “We appreciate the help from Marge and the Fire Department,” said Kisselburg.

Underwater egg hunt offers a change of pace

FARMINGTON (AP) — About 150 children plunged into the water Friday to experience a wet twist on an old classic. They were searching for plastic eggs at the Farmington Aquatic Center during the city’s first Underwater Easter Egg Hunt. The event, from the time lifeguards finished distributing 250 eggs into the pools to the moment the last egg was plucked from the water, lasted less than 10

minutes. But things that are quick aren’t necessarily easy, said 10-year -old Niesha Colbert, of Farmington. “It was pretty hard,” she said. “The eggs were floating and a lot were hidden in the same place. The hard part was trying to get them before the other kids.” Organizers of the event tried to limit egg collection to one per child. Because of that rule, Colbert had to give up four of the five eggs she found in the water.

Japan to Mexico, from Indonesia to the British Isles. The celebration of Easter has long been associated with the lunar cycle. The reason why the date shifts is because the day is calculated for the Sunday following the Paschal Full Moon, the 14th day of a lunar month occurring on or immediately after March 21. The calculation is set of ecclesiastical cal-

endar rules. During a holiday that celebrates spiritual rebirth, renewal and resurrection, the symbol of the rabbit delivering eggs is not so obscure. The Easter bunny was documented in Georg Franck von Frankenau’s 1682 publication, De ovis paschalibus, or About the Easter Egg. The book describes the Alsace tradi-

tion of the Easter Hare bringing Easter Eggs. The custom seems to have its origins in Alsace and the Upper Rhineland when both were part of the Holy Roman Empire. The practice was first recorded in a German publication in the 1500s. Ger man settlers who arrived in the Pennsylvania Dutch country in 18th century, brought Easter

bunny, or Oster hase, with them. The tradition of Oster hase could be compared to Kris Kringle on Christmas Eve. Children would build brightly colored nests, often out of caps and bonnets, and hide them in secluded areas of their homes. If a child were good, the Oster hase, hase meaning hare, would bring brightly-colored eggs in

the nest The first candy eggs also came from Germany during the early 19th century. They were made of pastry and sugar. The nest of the 18th century eventually became the Easter basket, and the placing of the nest in a secluded area has become the tradition of hiding baskets and eggs.

The Vatican, however, warns against creationism, or the overly literal interpretation of the bibilical account of creation. Benedict’s voice was hoarse and he coughed several times during the

three-hour service, which ended after midnight. It was the second late night in a row for the 84-yearold pontiff following his participation in the Good Friday Way of the Cross procession at Rome’s Colosseum, which commemorates Jesus’ death. On Sunday, he celebrates Easter Mass in St. Peter’s Square and gives his traditional Easter

greetings in dozens of languages — his last major celebration before next week’s beatification of Pope John Paul II. The Easter Vigil is the most important liturgy on the church’s calendar, when the faithful mark the passage from Christ’s death to his resurrection on Easter Sunday. It is rich with symbols: fire and light signifying Jesus’ res-

urrection, and the water used to baptize people into the faith. On Saturday night, Benedict baptized six adults from Switzerland, Albania, Russia, Peru, Singapore and China, pouring water over their heads as he prayed. Benedict began the service by lighting a candle and walking down a darkened central aisle of St.

Peter’s Basilica in silence, while hundreds of faithful in the pews shared the flame from candle to candle until the entire basilica twinkled. This year, students of the Legion of Christ, the conservative order undergoing a major Vaticanmandated overhaul, provided the liturgical service at the vigil.

Deming is a model for what a museum should be

SANTA FE — How does a small town develop a world class local museum? They would do well to copy Deming. The Deming Luna County Mimbres Museum is recognized by many as a miniature Smithsonian. For many years, Luna County Historical Society rented a house on Nickel Street to use as a museum. But they outgrew it. Soon they learned that the National Guard Armory was for sale. The Ruebush family donated half the money for the purchase and challenged the community to raise the rest. It worked. At first the building was far too big but it didn’t take long for donated items to fill it. Free professional advice was sought to categorize the items. In fact, no public money was used until the city and county began helping with the utilities. As the museum grew, additions to the building were financed by grants from the Legislature but no money has been used for exhibits or


salaries. Community fundraisers have done the rest. Deming began as a railroad town in 1881 when the Southern Pacific and the Santa Fe hooked up west of town to become the second transcontinental railroad. A silver spike was driven to commemorate the final step. Dreams of Deming becoming a large city, with the connecting of two major railroads were dashed when the Santa Fe decided to extend its tracks west from Albuquerque and the Southern Pacific decided to move its headquarters to El Paso. But the Deming depot had a Harvey House, an elegant restau-

rant where gourmet meals were served on white table cloths with china and silver. The Harvey Girl waitresses, recruited from the East, were given exquisite training and were credited by many with bringing civilization to the Wild West. Farming and ranching also became major components of the Luna County area. They are well covered in the exhibits as are street scenes of early Deming with windows filled with museum-quality items. Dolls, quilts, whiskey bottles, antique autos and art also decorate the walls. There also was life here before the railroad came. A thousand years ago, the Mimbres Indians built villages near what we now call the Mimbres River. Their pottery is distinctive, depicting animals, people and geometric designs. With many donations, the museum now has a world-class exhibit. Being close to the Mexican border has had a major effect on

Deming. For many years, it was the closest community to the border. That meant it had the Custom House and the first armory after New Mexico became a state in 1912. Mexico was having a revolution at the time that spilled over into New Mexico in 1916. Militia from Luna County, along with Gen. Black Jack Pershing’s soldiers from El Paso made history with the Punitive Expedition into Mexico. They didn’t find Villa but it was the first military use of motorized vehicles and airplanes — good experience for World War I, which we entered the following year. Luna County hosted Camp Cody in World War I and Deming Army Air Field in World War II. Meanwhile young men from the area were bravely defending the Philippines from the Japanese march to Australia. They were part of the infamous Bataan Death March. The Military Room tells this poignant story. Gems and minerals also are big

in Luna County, which contains Rockhound State Park — blessed with many semi-precious stones. The local Gem and Mineral Society donated and maintains that exhibit. Tuberculosis also played a part in settlement of the arid Southwest. Our dry air was the best cure at the time. Many recovered victims and their families stayed in the area — my family being one of them. A Medical Room is dedicated to this and other chapters in local medical history. Many other communities in the state also have outstanding museums. I have visited many of them. I dwell on Deming, however, because I spent 13 years growing up there. Many of the people and families who were so important in creating the museum were and are good friends. (Write to Jay Miller at 3 La Tusa, Santa Fe, NM 87505; by fax at 984-0982; or by e-mail at


Happy Easter

Today is Easter. It’s a day to reflect upon the gift of redemption, and there is a certain cosmic symmetry that this holy day takes place during spring. We are in the season of renewal. It’s a time when new life and new opportunity abound. Can it be mere coincidence that this time of year should have so many parallels with one of the central events of the Christian faith? Both Easter and spring embody the arrival of hope after a time of darkness and desolation. Life is returning to nature just as it returned to mankind through the sacrifice made by Jesus. No longer do the cold winds of winter race across the land. Trees and flowers are shaking of f the chill of the past and embracing the warm sun of these lengthening days. Animals are preparing to usher in a new generation of life. Even here in our desert community, the resurgence of nature is in evidence. Ahead are days full of the potential for growth. For flora and fauna alike the lean times are behind. Those plants and animals which have survived the barrenness of winter can rebuild their strength. For farmers, it is a time to look ahead and ready themselves to sow their future crops. Winter is a time to survive. Spring is a time to thrive. And as spring delivers a promise of new beginning to the physical world, Easter offers a covenant for a spiritual fresh start. The teachings of Jesus brought with them the gift of forgiveness for those who embrace his lessons. The sins of the past can be washed away. Misdeeds can be absolved if they are renounced. Through his sacrifice, Jesus provided mankind hope for the future. Though we may pass through dark times, there is a season of hope ahead. Forgiveness. A new start. These are gifts even the best of us can embrace as we make our way through life. Thanks to the sacrifice made in our name, we can rejoice in the opportunities that are ahead and escape the shadow of our past errors. We at the Daily Record wish all of our valued customers a happy Easter.


Today is Easter Sunday, April 24, the 114th day of 2011. There are 251 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight On April 24, 1961, in the wake of the failed Bay of Pigs invasion of Cuba, the White House issued a statement saying that President John F. Kennedy “bears sole responsibility for the events of the past few days.” On this date In 1792, the national anthem of France, “La Marseillaise” (lah mahr-say-YEHZ’), was composed by Captain Claude Joseph Rouget de Lisle. In 1800, Congress approved a bill establishing the Library of Congress. DEAR DR. GOTT: My mother is 87 years old and has great difficulty swallowing pills. They get stuck in her throat, and she is so afraid of choking she would prefer not to take them at all, which is not an option because of her many medical conditions. Can you offer any guidance? Her entire family is terribly concerned. DEAR READER: I do have a few recommendations that might get her back on track. Your mother should take her pills at a time when she doesn’t feel she is under stress. She should be relaxed and assisted by a single family member or appropriate person with whom she feels comfortable. Don’t perform the task if everyone is gathered around, coaxing her on. Furthermore, it helps the swallowing process if the

Trump is fickle and no conservative

In bridge, a trump card is held in reserve for winning a trick. In politics, Donald T rump is anything but reserved and appears to think he might trick enough voters to win the next presidential election. There’s plenty to draw on when critiquing a possible Trump candidacy. His multiple marriages (three) and affairs provide fodder for the media and contrast poorly with President Obama’s “family values” image as husband of one wife and father of young daughters, whom he clearly loves. In recent weeks, Trump has been trying to gain a toehold in

Then she can place a pill in her mouth, take another sip, and the pill should glide down. Placing some types of pills in a small plastic resealable bag and crushing them within the

bag using the back of a spoon will break them up. Then empty the contents into a spoonful of applesauce, yogurt or other appealing food. Should she take capsules, simply open the medication and pour its contents into a spoonful of food. Another option is to purchase a pill crusher. If the medication is coated or has a delayed release action, the pills should never been crushed, broken or chewed. Check with your pharmacist before crushing any medications. My next recommendation, and perhaps the easiest, is an over -the-counter product known as Pill Glide, a waterbased lubricating gel. A flavored, metered dose is squirted into the mouth. It is free of sugar, dyes, gluten and casein, has no active ingredients, and

to a question about his faith, Trump said, “I believe in God. I am Christian. I think the Bible is certainly, it is ‘the’ book. It is the thing.” To evangelical ears, that lacks substance. While a candidate’s faith should matter only if it affects policy, if someone wishes to use his or her faith to win votes, then voters ought to be able to judge the depth of that faith as a means of determining their credibility. What should we make of Trump telling Brody that people send him Bibles all the time and that he stores them “in a very nice place”? “There is no way I would ever throw any-

I would have a fear of doing something other than very positive so actually I store them and keep them and sometimes give them away to other people.” Does he read the Bible and believe what it says? How about the parts concerning marriage, divorce and fornication? Would that be something Trump should take to heart? Brody didn’t ask and Trump didn’t volunteer. He did say he goes to church “as much as I can. Always on Christmas. Always on Easter. Always when

Easter and a man who lived a long time ago I think from time to time, “What if everybody in our community went to church on the same Sunday?” What would that be like? Every seat in every church would be filled and there would be people who would have to stand outside the sanctuaries or be turned away. Today is Easter Sunday. Across our community, there will be more people in church today than any other Sunday the entire year. Nationally, church attendance will climb an average of 25 percent on this one day. What is Easter Sunday all about? It is about a man who lived 2,000 years ago in a land far away across the ocean and who was killed and then came back to life. He never traveled more than 200 miles from where he was born. He never journeyed into a big city. This man never held an office or wrote a book. The man was 33 years old when he was hung on a cross after he was mocked and made fun of in the last days and hours of his life. Individuals who had walked beside him for the final years of his life let him down in his last days on this planet and one of his closest friends even denied knowing him. His closest followers scattered in fear after his death only to reunite days later. I wonder what it would have been like to have been in Jerusalem the final week of this man’s life and when he rose from the dead. There were many eyewit-



nesses who were amazed at these events and those whose accounts of what happened are still told today. For example the close friend who denied this man was told ahead of time that he would do so. The man’s name was Peter. Peter responded when informed he would deny this man by assuring his friend that he would never deny knowing him. Amazingly enough, Peter not only denied knowing him once, but he did it three times. Immediately after the third denial, Peter’s eyes met the eyes of his friend who was about to be murdered. I have a hard time absorbing this moment. Another close friend was paid money to identify this man for the Roman soldiers so he could be arrested. This man’s name was Judas. After walking side by side with this man for about three years helping spread this man’s message, Judas agreed to accept money to turn him over to the soldiers. This also had been prophesied. Judas was so distraught after doing this that he would soon take his own life.

there’s a major occasion.” Christians know a lot of people who attend church only on Christmas and Easter and special occasions. They are usually not serious about their faith. Not to judge, but if Trump intends to use faith to win votes from people of faith, then those people have a right to determine whether he is sincere or simply trying to manipulate them. Trump also appears shifty when it comes to judging our “worst” president. In 2007, Trump said President George W. Bush was “the worst president ever.” In 2008, he said Bush should be impeached and that he was “impressed” by thenHouse Speaker Nancy Pelosi. But this year he says President Obama is “the worst president ever.” He is also on record as saying Jimmy Carter was the worst president. Trump has donated to many liberal Democrats, arguing that since he lives in liberal New York City he had no other choice. Really? Conservative talk show host Mark Levin isn’t buying it. On a recent broadcast of “The Mark Levin Show,” he asked, “Where was (T rump) during the tea party’s rise and throughout the battles it was having? Why was he donating to

DEAR DR. GOTT: A few weeks ago, you said putting nail hardener on skin tags helps to dry them and consequently they fall off. Would it be possible to do the same with seborrheic keratosis spots? I have many. Thank you for your consideration. I am an 80-year -old healthy female. DEAR READER: Oddly enough, I just

Both his followers and non followers alike gathered together and became possessed with a lynch mob mentality. The people in and around the city he was in became angry and wanted swift justice done on this man; swift justice being the taking of his life. Much of what happened in the final days of this man’s life was the result of a group of people who didn’t really care about rational justice being done, they just wanted this man dead, however they could get there. Even after he was sentenced to death, because of the Passover season they were in, the crowd was able to choose between him and another prisoner as to whom they wanted to be spared death. The crowd chose to release a rebel and a murderer over releasing this man. The final days of this man’s life which led to the Easter story was definitely a crazy time in the history of our world. Amazing as it is, this man is the only one who has walked this Earth in the history of mankind who has lived a perfect and sinless life. There was really nothing that he was guilty of doing. Pilate, the Roman governor who tried him, after speaking with this man said to the angry crowd that he found no basis for any charge against him. Nevertheless, the crowd chanted to have him crucified. This man died an extremely painful death, bleeding from nails piercing his hands while hanging from a cross. With his mother

Senator (Chuck) Schumer, Congressman Anthony Weiner and Hillary Clinton’s campaigns when the tea party was beginning to rise?” Levin also notes that Trump wants universal health care and asked, “How is that conservative?” Trump also has flipped from pro-choice on abortion to pro-life because, he told ABC’s George Stephanopoulos, two married friends who wanted to abort their child, decided not to and now are happy they didn’t. Pro-lifers won’t be impressed because Trump didn’t mention the baby’s right to life. Donald Trump is no conservative. In fact, it’s hard to say which party he’s affiliated with. In 1987, he was Republican. In 1999, he switched to the Independence Party. In 2009, when he first considered the presidency, the New York Daily News reported, “The Donald switched his party affiliation from Democrat to Republican.” One thing’s for sure, if he runs for president, he could harm the eventual Republican nominee. Maybe that’s why so many in the liberal media are promoting him while President Obama’s approval ratings continue to fall.

She applied it once daily, peeled it off after her daily shower, and then reapplied a new coat. The lesion was totally gone after several weeks. My guess is that the polish worked as a barrier, keeping the lesion dry and without vital oxygen for nourishment. She believed clear nail polish might have worked as well but did experience excellent results with the nail hardener. Another option is to use hydrogen peroxide. Simply apply it daily with a cotton swab. Some sources recommend against using it undiluted, so try mixing with an equal amount of water.

standing at the foot of the cross, this man, in his final hours, was taunted and mocked. Soldiers cast lots for this man’s clothing. What an event this would have been to witness. As this man died, he prayed a prayer of forgiveness over those who were killing him. His life ended with dying between two criminals hanging on crosses on either side of him. As this man died, daylight turned to darkness in the middle of the day. The Earth shook, rocks split and tombs broke open. A curtain in the temple was torn in two from top to bottom. If there was any doubt by those around that this man was who he said he was, those doubts were removed by what occurred at the time of his death. A great many people witnessed these events. But Easter is not about this man’s death, it is about what happened next. The most amazing aspect of this man’s life was that three days after he died, he returned to life as he said he would. He came back and walked and talked with many who knew him and with many who didn’t. At one point he appeared to more 500 individuals at the same time. He walked the earth for another 40 days before ascending to heaven. I read an account by an unknown author who wrote that this man “had no servants, yet they called him Master. Had no degree, yet they called him


Teacher. Had no medicines, yet they called him Healer. He had no army, yet kings feared Him. He won no military battles, yet he conquered the world. “Nineteen centuries have come and gone and today he is the central figure for much of the human race. All the armies that ever marched, all the navies that ever sailed, all the parliaments that ever sat, and all the kings that ever reigned, put together, have not affected the life of man upon this Earth as powerfully as this one life.” The country in power when this man lived, Rome, would eventually fall, but the impact of this man’s life lives on today. My challenge to you today is to attend a church of your choice to celebrate Easter. Recognize the impact this man made in the life he lived. Study his teachings. Consider following his teachings on this Easter Sunday. Oh, by the way, the man’s name is Jesus Christ. The best selling book of all time speaks of this man. I know he lived 2,000 years ago because we measure time by his life. Easter is the story of his life, death and life again. More than just a thought ... Rick Kraft hopes that you have a blessed Easter Sunday. T o submit comments, contributions, ideas, e-mail to or or write to P.O. Box 850, Roswell, NM, 88202-0850.

Roswell SAFE Coalition Every week at about this time, I begin to consider my safety column. Oddly enough, determining what the week’s topic will be is rarely a big problem. I like the column to be somewhat informative, not an exact duplicate of the internet, and as timely as possible. Sometimes, the subject matter might be all of those things, and yet it is just not appropriate for Roswell. So as I begin this week’s effort, my inclination is to talk about tor nados, or floods, or something else which is so horribly affecting thousands of lives nationwide. But these things just don’t seem appropriate for our little corner of the world. ( I do remember writing about snow shovel safety and everyone thought I was nuts. Until two days later, that is!) Here, however, is something that is appropriate:

The Roswell SAFE Coalition is a stand-alone 501(c)(3), non-profit organization with a mission to help create and maintain a safe, healthy, and unified community. Although they are completely separate and distinct organizations, the Roswell Neighborhood Watch and the Chaves


County Crime Stoppers work, to a degree, under a Coalition umbrella. Simply put, all of these organizations have a common mission. All exist to make an impact on crime prevention within our community of Roswell and Chaves County, New Mexico. It has been said, “How do you eat an elephant?” and the answer has to be “One bite at a time.” We are dedicated to give some assistance, some support, to the law enforcement professionals here in our home.

As you read this column, you may be saying to yourself, “Well, what does he want?” Pure and simple, I want you to look around your neighborhood. Ask yourself if a Neighborhood Watch group would be beneficial. And then, make the phone call! I want you to write down the Chaves County Crime Stoppers phone number (888-594-

Thousands mark holy fire rite in Jerusalem church JERUSALEM (AP) — The small doorway to the traditional site of Jesus’ tomb cracked open to reveal a bright flame and tens of thousands of worshippers cheered ecstatically, marking the pinnacle of Easter Week’s holy fire ceremony in the Church of the Holy Sepulcher. The annual ritual has been practiced for at least the last 1,200 years on the day before Easter, which celebrates Jesus’ resurrection. Worshippers of various Orthodox Christian sects packed into the Jerusalem church — Christianity’s most sacred shrine and revered as the site where Jesus was crucified, buried and resurrected. In the ceremony, a flame believed to be miraculously lit emanates from the tomb. “I’m all vibrating,” said Romanian pilgrim Ivan Kurnia. “It’s really, really impressive.” Hours before the ceremony, local Christians and pilgrims from around the world snaked through the narrow alleyways of Jerusalem’s old city and filled the small courtyard outside the church. About a thousand Israeli police of ficers processed the crowds through police barricades that filtered access to the church’s only entrance. Inside gathered a colorful mix of clergymen and worshippers representing the different Orthodox Christian sects — from Armenian monks in black robes and pointed hoods to Russian Orthodox women wearing turquoise headscarves. People crammed against each other in the dimly lit, caver nous church, and police broke up scuffles. One middle-aged American woman fainted, but she remained standing beause people were pressed up against her in the densely packed crowd. Despite the suffocating crowds, the throngs waited in anticipation for the ceremony to begin, clutching bundles of 33 slim candles signifying the years of Jesus’ life. Adorned with a golden crown encrusted with jewels and religious icons, the Greek Orthodox Patriarch of Jerusalem, Theofilos III, entered the Edicule, the small chamber at the core of the church marking the site of Jesus’ tomb. Armenian clergymen entered as

well, and the door was sealed, guarded by clergymen and an Israeli policeman. Then, the door was opened to reveal candles lit with the holy fire — said to be miraculously lit and interpreted as a message to the faithful from the heavens. The precise details of the flame’s source are a closely guarded secret. The flame was quickly passed on from one bunch of candles to another, and soon the dark church was filled with worshippers holding flickering torches and waving it around their faces. Bells rang and people cheered. “Christos has risen. I feel amazing,” said a Russian Orthodox pilgrim from San Francisco who identified himself only as Igor. “It came from God, from the sky.” Police spokesman Shmuel Ben Rubi said around a thousand police officers were deployed to direct foot traffic and keep the peace. He estimated tens of thousands of worshippers were in the church. Asaf Abras, spokesman for Jerusalem’s firefighting services, said about 10 firefighters with mobile units were stationed around the church in case of emergency. Israeli officials have been worried since the late 1990s that a fire could erupt from the church during the ritual. In 1834, pilgrims in the church panicked, a stampede ensued, and several hundred people were crushed or suffocated to death. But the six Christian sects that stake claim to

dif ferent sections of the church have been reluctant to build an emergency exit

or a fire escape. The sects zealously guard their portions of the church and

brawls have erupted in recent years when clergymen of one sect encroach

on another section, even when only sweeping the floor. None of the sects wants to give up an inch of precious real estate in the church to construct a second exit. After the holy fire ceremony, the flame was immediately taken from the church and past an Israeli military barrier into the Palestinian Authority-controlled city of Bethlehem where it was received at the Church of the Nativity, the traditional site of Jesus’ birthplace. Palestinian Prime Minister Salaam Fayyad attended another holy fire ceremony in a central square in Ramallah, the seat of his gover nment in the West Bank. In the Gaza Strip, about fifty Christian worshippers attended a mass in one of Gaza’s two churches.

NA T I O N A L BRIEFS DOLPHINS WR MARSHALL STABBED BY WIFE MIAMI (AP) — Authorities said the wife of Brandon Marshall stabbed the Miami Dolphins wide receiver with a kitchen knife, and his agent said Saturday that the player was recovering. Michi Nogami-Marshall, 26, was arrested Friday evening and charged with aggravated battery with a deadly weapon. According to the Broward County Sheriff's Office arrest report, Nogami-Marshall told officers she was defending herself. Marshall had earlier told officers he slipped and fell onto a broken glass vase, but the officers noted that evidence at the couple's home didn't substantiate that claim. Nogami-Marshall was released from jail Saturday on $7,500 bail. It was unclear if she had an attorney. “This is a very difficult time for Brandon and family, thankfully he will make a full recovery,” Marshall’s agent, Kennard McGuire, said in a statement. The NFL lockout restricts team contact with players. However, a team doctor for the Dolphins can see Marshall and consult with Marshall’s other doctors, and the team can express appropriate well wishes, said NFL spokesman Greg Aiello. Marshall married Michi Nogami in Miami last July. They met while both were students at Central Florida. They live in Southwest Ranches, which is near the Dolphins’ complex in Davie.

A hit is a hit, except when it means more. That Yogi Berra-esque sentence was proven true in the second game of Goddard’s doubleheader with Roswell. The Coyotes outhit the Rockets 10-9, but Goddard’s hits came during clutch moments as they took Game 2, 8-4. In the first game, Goddard’s R yan Greene and Roswell’s David Herrera were locked in a pitchers dual. Herrera allowed only five hits, but seven walks and two hit batsmen did the Coyotes in. Greene was nearly unhittable in Game 1, allowing just two hits. He didn’t allow a runner past first base until the seventh inning and no Coyote reached third. Goddard coach Steve Nunez said that Goddard was counting on that type of outing from Greene. “Ryan has been throwing the ball pretty dang good,” he said. “He threw the ball good in Artesia, but we just didn’t help him out. We knew he’d come out today like he has been doing all year. So, we are pretty happy with the performance.” The Rockets scored two in the third and one in both the fifth and sixth innings in the first game. After the first inning and

Wilcox started the home half of the second with a walk and after a strikeout, advanced to second on a balk by Roswell’s Kevin Kelly. Greene followed up the strikeout with a walk and Caelin Wilcox drove home the first run of the game with an RBI single.

Austin Rader then hit what should have been a run-scoring single, but a base-running mishap got Caelin Wilcox thrown out at second instead. The Rockets would push across another run with a two-out single up the middle by Brad Blackwell, giving Goddard a 2-0 lead. Roswell had a chance to close the gap in the third, but couldn’t collect a clutch hit.

Steve Lucero started off the top of the third with a walk and advanced to second on a one-out single by Herrera. A groundout by James Singleton put runners at second and third with two outs, but Roswell’s cleanup hitter, Luis Vale grounded out to end the threat. In the first three innings, Roswell stranded four base runners, something that frustrated coach Dane

Kyser. “Without a doubt it is frustrating,” he said regarding leaving men on base. “We outhit them 109, but obviously when we needed the hits, we didn’t get them. It’s frustrating to know that several times throughout the course of the year we are there to take games and we’re not.” See GHS, Page B3

It’s a common phrase hear d ar ound baseball and one that, most of the time, means you didn’t win. Whenever you hear the phrase, “We gave them too many outs” uttered, it’s safe to assume the person uttering it is a part of the losing side. That phrase was exactly how Valley Christian coach Jim Valdez described a 7-6 loss in Game 2 of his team’s doubleheader with District 41A foe Elida, Saturday. “It’s very frustrating,” he said. “We really didn’t play our best baseball today. We made a lot of mistakes.

“We gave them a lot of outs. We gave them more outs than they deserved. If you start giving them four and five outs in an inning, you’re going to get beat, that’s all there is to it.” Valdez was talking about the game in general when he said the Lions gave Elida too many outs, but the sixth inning is when that truly caught up with Valley. With a 5-1 lead in hand heading to the fifth, Dominic Dunlap came on in relief of Taylor Line and the troubles began immediately.

Pacers prevent sweep with 89-84 win

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Chicago’s fans traveled to Indiana by the thousands, planning to celebrate a firstround playoff victory at Conseco Fieldhouse. The Pacers sent them home disappointed, holding off a furious rally to beat the Bulls 89-84 on Saturday afternoon for their first playoff win since 2006. Chicago’s Carlos Boozer missed a 3-point attempt that could have tied the game with a second remaining. The Bulls still lead the series 3-1 and will have a chance to close it out at home Tuesday. Danny Granger scored 24 points for Indiana, which never trailed and finally broke through after losing the first three games by a combined 15 points. Bulls guard Derrick Rose, who averaged 32.7 points in the first three games, finished with 15 points and 10 assists. He sprained his left ankle late in the first quar-

ter and scored eight points on 3-for -16 shooting the rest of the way. Joakim Noah led the Bulls with 21 points and 14 rebounds. Chicago trailed 84-71 with 2:17 remaining before making a final rally. A three-point play by Luol Deng cut Indiana’s lead to 84-77 with 1:36 to go. A goaltending call against Roy Hibbert on a shot by Boozer sliced the deficit to 84-79 with 46.5 seconds remaining, and a steal and dunk by Rose pulled the Bulls within 84-81. Mike Dunleavy hit the second of two free throws with 17.9 seconds left to make it 85-81. Noah made a layup with 15.3 seconds remaining, and Jeff Foster fouled him while trying to take a charge. Noah made the free throw to cut Indiana’s lead to 85-84. The Pacers barely got the ball inbounds, but Granger was fouled with 14.1 sec-

onds left. Through a booing crowd on his home court, Granger made both free throws to make it 87-84. Boozer’s 3-point try from the left corner was short, and Granger rebounded. Granger made two free throws with a second remaining to close the deal. The Bulls shot just 38 percent. Rose came up hobbling after going for a layup against Darren Collison. Rose went to the locker room briefly before returning to the bench. He came back into the game with 10:29 left in the second quarter. Indiana closed the first half on a 17-3 run to take a 49-33 lead at the break. Ten different Pacers scored before halftime. Early in the third quarter, Hibbert blocked Rose on a layup attempt. Granger collected the rebound then dribbled nearly the length of the floor for a layup to give the Pacers a 55-37 lead.

Portland rallies from 23 down to even series with Dallas PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Brandon Roy’s go-ahead bank shot with 39.2 seconds left capped Portland’s 23-point second half comeback and the Blazers beat the Dallas Mavericks 84-82 on Saturday night, evening the first-round playoff series at two games apiece. Roy, who has struggled to find his place on the team since undergoing arthroscopic surgery on both knees in January, had 18 of his 24 points in the fourth quarter alone. Both teams have held home court in their best-ofseven playoff series, which heads to Dallas on Monday. T railing 64-41 in the third quarter, the Blazers started to rally. They trailed 77-70 after consecutive jumpers by Andre Miller. Jason Terry answered with a 3-pointer but then Roy drove down the lane and finished to narrow it to

one run. Alex Varela then made it 5-4 with a two-run triple to right. Dunlap retired the next batter he faced before Jordyn Tivis tied the game at 5-5 with an RBI single that plated Varela. After Valley went scoreless in its half of the sixth, the Tigers took the lead in the seventh. A bunt single loaded the bases with no outs, but Dunlap struck out the next two T igers to bring Taylor Boone to the plate. Boone sent a grounder up the middle, plating a run to make it 6-5. Second baseman Adam Mayes got a glove on the infield single, but his throw to second was too low for Gray to field at second. As Line tracked the ball down from third, another run scor ed to give the Tigers a 7-5 lead. Dunlap, who would take the loss on the mound for the Lions, then induced a flyout to end the inning. In the bottom of the seventh, Bryce Br eedyk r eached on an err or to open the inning and moved to second when the throw went out of play. He then moved to third on a passed ball with Line at the plate. After the passed ball, Line sent a high drive down the third-base line that easily clear ed the fence, but it was just left of the foul pole.

Two pitches later, Line was called out when he took a chin-high fastball that was called a strike. After that, Morgan Jones plated Breedyk with an RBI groundout to the pitcher and Dunlap popped out to short for the third and final out. Logan Rader finished the game with a pair of hits, including a home run to lead off the game that made 1-0 and an RBI single up the middle to make it 3-1. Line’s two-run home run in the bottom of the fifth made it 5-1.

Game 1

The Lions broke open a 10-10 in the bottom of the fifth inning en route to a 12-10 win over the Tigers

in Game 1 of the doubleheader. Elida plated a pair of runs in the top of the fifth to tie things at 10-all, but Valley answered in its half of the fifth. Rader led off the inning with a hit-by-pitch and Gray and Br eedyk each walked. Rader and Breedyk would each come around to score to make it 12-10. Line came on in relief of Rader in the sixth and struck out three straight with runners on first and second to take the game to the seventh. In the seventh, Line retired the side in order to record the save and give Rader the win.

80-74 with 2:32 to go. LaMarcus Aldridge added a turnaround jumper. Roy’s long jumper pulled the Blazers within two, but Shawn Marion came back with his own jumper for Dallas — before Roy made a 3-pointer and a free throw with 1:06 left, tied 82. After Roy’s go-ahead jumper banked in, the Mavericks missed two 3point tries, the first from Jason Kidd and the second from Terry as time ran out. Roy defended Terry on the final shot. Dirk Nowitzki had 20 points to lead the Mavericks. The Blazers started slow, going 0-for-4 from the floor with two turnovers, and finished the first quarter shooting just 25 percent (4for-16). Dallas capitalized on the pace, taking a 22-13 lead early in the second quarter after Terry’s jumper. Aldridge didn’t score for the Blazers until a pair of free throws at the 7:36 mark of the second quarter. While successfully defending Aldridge, the Mavericks were spreading

their scoring around better than they had in the previous three games, and extended the lead to 33-23 on Tyson Chandler’s layup. Tempers flared with 3:21 left in the first half when Aldridge and Chandler got into a shoving match under the Blazers’ basket, resulting in a technical for each. The scuffle seemed to bring the fans — and the Blazers themselves, back into the game. Portland closed to 37-35 at the break after Wesley Matthews’ layup and a pair of free throws from Aldridge. Matthews led the Blazers with 25 points in Portland’s 97-92 victory in Game 3 on Thursday night, which drew the Blazers within 2-1 into best-of-7 series. The Mavericks did not go to the free-throw line in the first half, while the Blazers went 12-for-12. Kidd’s high-arcing 3pointer gave the Mavs a 4837 lead in the third quarter and the Rose Garden crowd fell quiet. It touched off a 16-4 run by the Mavs capped by Peja Stojakovic’s 3-pointer to make it 64-41.

Grizzlies top Spurs, take 2-1 series lead

AP Photo The Memphis Grizzlies’ Marc Gasol celebrates after a score against the San Antonio Spurs during the first half of Game 3, Saturday.

Rockies beat Marlins, 3-1 MIAMI (AP) — Jason Hammel pitched a season-high 6 2-3 innings and bunted home a run to give the Colorado Rockies’ sputtering offense a boost and help them beat the Florida Marlins 3-1 Saturday night. The NL West-leading Rockies snapped Florida’s four-game winning streak and improved to 8-2 on the road. Hammel (2-1) allowed seven hits and one run. Three relievers combined to pitch 2 1-3 perfect innings, and Huston Street pitched the ninth for his seventh save in as many chances. Colorado’s bullpen has allowed just two runs in the past 22 1-3 innings The Rockies, who were one-hit by Anibal Sanchez in a defeat Friday, won with only six hits. Troy Tulowitzki had an RBI single in the first inning, and Ty Wigginton put Colorado ahead to stay with a sacrifice fly in the sixth. The Marlins gave their biggest crowd since opening day little to cheer about. Announced attendance was 37,381, but the actual turnout was about 25,000. Florida shortstop Hanley Ramirez made his fifth error of the season on a bad throw and went 0 for 4, dropping his average to .194. He’s in a 2-for-23

slump and drew scattered boos when he grounded out in the eighth. Javier Vazquez (1-2), making his first start in eight days, went six innings. He allowed four hits, five walks and three runs. Colorado broke a 1-all tie with two runs in the sixth. Todd Helton doubled and took third when left fielder Emilio Bonifacio took a zigzag route and let Seth Smith’s deep fly fall for a double. Wigginton’s flyout put Colorado ahead, and Hammel laid down a sacrifice bunt to score Smith from third. Tulowitzki was only 3 for 23 with runners in scoring position before he singled home a run in the first after Vazquez issued two walks. Florida’s John Buck tied the game in the third when he doubled and later came home on Chris Coghlan’s sacrifice fly. NOTES: Less than 24 hours after throwing 123 pitches in a one-hitter, Sanchez said he felt fine. He was hit in the right leg by a hard grounder in the seventh inning. ... The Puerto Rican salsa band El Gran Combo performed a postgame concert. Their fans include Marlins manager Edwin Rodriguez, who said the band played at his high school during his senior year in 1978.

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) — Zach Randolph scored 25 points, including a rare 3pointer with 41.9 seconds left, and the Memphis Grizzlies beat the San Antonio Spurs 91-88 Saturday night for the franchise’s first playoff victory on its home court. These Grizzlies have been busy this postseason making lots of history at the Spurs’ expense. They opened this series with their first playoff win, and now the No. 8 seed has a 21 lead over the NBA’s best team during the regular season. Memphis is trying to become just the fourth team to knock off the topseeded team. Game 4 is Monday night in Memphis. Marc Gasol scored 17 points, Mike Conley had 14 and O.J. Mayo had 10 off the bench for Memphis. Manu Ginobili led the Spurs with 23 points. Tony Parker had 16, Tim Duncan 13 and George Hill 11. The Spurs only led early and never by more than 1, the last at 12-11. They fell

behind by as much as 15 before managing to tie it up twice in the final 8:06, the last at 80 on a Ginobili free throw. Parker’s reverse layup pulled the Spurs within 8886 with 1:04 left. The Grizzlies took a timeout, and Randolph looked for an option with the shot clock ticking down, then he put up the 3-pointer over Duncan’s outstretched ar m. The ball fell in with 41.9 seconds left for a 91-86 lead that sparked fans to chant his nickname “Z-Bo, Z-Bo.” Ginobili hit a pair of free throws with 31 seconds, but the Spurs couldn’t get off a shot coming up the right side at the end. Ginobili got stopped and looked like he was trying to pass while Duncan tried to call timeout. He was too late as the horn sounded, sparking a big celebration. The Spurs managed to outrebound Memphis 4837, but the Grizzlies had a 44-40 edge in the paint as they worked the ball inside to Randolph and Gasol. They also had a 17-9 edge

on the fast break against the Spurs. The NBA’s best 3-point shooting team was a meager 2 of 15. Memphis hit only 4 of 11, including Randolph’s big 3. Antonio McDyess went to the locker room with 2:56 left in pain, but no update was immediately available on his injury. The Spurs thought getting Ginobili back and winning Game 2 got them back on track. But San Antonio ended the regular season losing six of their final seven road games, and Memphis won 30 of its 46 games in the FedExForum. The Grizzlies also had just the fifth sellout crowd of the season rooting them on. Memphis tapped into the city’s past by bringing out wrestler Jerry Lawler to help fire up the sold-out crowd after a party outside the FedExForum in anticipation of the Grizzlies’ first home playoff game since 2006. One fan had a blown-up cutout of Eva Longoria’s head with a Grizzlies’ headband, and it was held up near courtside

trying to taunt Parker. All the excitement may have been too much as Memphis, with eight Grizzlies in their first home playoff game, missed six of its first seven shots. They settled down and hit nine of the next 11. The Spurs had made an NBA-best 58 free throws through the first two games, more than the Grizzlies had even attempted. Gasol picked up a foul on the Spurs’ first possession, except Duncan hit only air on his first attempt while clanking the second off the front rim. The Spurs’ last lead in the first half came when George Hill tipped in a shot at 12-11. Gasol put Memphis ahead with a threepoint play, kicking off an 18-8 spurt that left the Grizzlies up 29-20 at the end of the first quarter. The Grizzlies pushed that lead to as much as 15. NOTES: Randolph was 8 of 43 from 3-point range during the season and had attempted only one in the postseason before his clinching shot.

Ogando solid into 7th as Rangers beat Royals 3-1

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Alexi Ogando allowed only one run pitching into the seventh inning, Michael Young extended his hitting streak to 13 games and the Texas Rangers defeated the Kansas City Royals 3-1 Saturday night. Ogando (3-0) held the Royals scoreless until Kila Ka’aihue led off the seventh with a homer on the righthander’s 14th and final pitch. He struck out five, walked one and allowed five hits. By losing the first two games in the three-game set, the Royals (12-9) became the last team in the majors to lose a series this

season. They had won three series and split three others before getting to Texas. After Elvis Andrus had a one-out walk in the third off Kyle Davies (1-2), Young had his second single of the game. Adrian Beltre then hit a sacrifice fly before Young stole second base and scored on a single by Nelson Cruz to make it 3-0. Davies limited the Rangers to three runs and four hits over six innings, but still has never beaten them. The right-hander is 0-5 with a 5.91 ERA in eight career starts against Texas. Cody Eppley made his major league debut with

two scoreless innings before Darren Oliver worked a perfect ninth for his fourth major league save in his 602 career appearances. Eppley’s contract was purchased from Triple-A Round Rock earlier Saturday and Oliver became the first in line for the Rangers’ closer-by-committee setup after closer Neftali Feliz was put on the disabled list (right shoulder inflammation). Before a save last season, the 40-year-old Oliver had not had a save since 1994. He is the oldest player ever to recover a save for the Rangers. Alex Gordon extended his

career -best and AL-high hitting streak to 17 games for the Royals with a single in the first. Gordon’s single came after a single by Melky Cabrera, but Ogando got out of that jam with an infield popout and a grounder. The Royals had two runners on in each of the first three innings. After Cabrera doubled and Gordon was hit by a pitch to start the third, Ogando, a converted outfielder, faced only 12 more batters — helped by a double play in the fifth — before Ka’aihue’s second homer landed in the second deck of seats in right field. Eppley then took over and struck out Matt Treanor. Texas got an unearned run in the second when David Murphy reached on an error by second baseman Chris Getz and scored on a double by Mitch Moreland. Young, the longesttenured Ranger in his 11th season and now the team’s primary designated hitter, is hitting .434 (23 of 52) in his hitting streak to push his season batting average to .366. While Gordon extended his hitting streak, the second-longest active in the majors behind a 20-gamer by Andre Ethier for the Los Angeles Dodgers, Royals teammate Jeff Francoeur has a 13-game hitting streak after his eighthinning double. Wilson Betemit’s 13-game streak ended by going 0 for 4, including shortstop Andrus making an impressive catch of a popup in short left field to end the eighth.

Donald a round away from No. 1 HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. (AP) — Luke Donald was more concerned about who was behind him at The Heritage than what’s ahead should he win Sunday. Donald shot a 1-under 70 on Saturday to take a one-str oke leader over defending champion Jim Furyk after three rounds at Harbour T own Golf Links. A victory would vault the thir d-ranked

Donald to No. 1. Donald knows if he thinks too much about that, he’ll lose sight of the stellar field trying to chase him down. “I think there’s a bunch of people behind us that have a good chance, too, so I don’t count anyone else out,” he said. “It should be a good battle out there.” It usually is with Donald and Furyk. Furyk, the American

ranked 13th in the world, used a par save from the bunker on the 72nd hole to win the Tour Championship by a stroke over Donald last year and claim the $10 million FedEx Cup bonus. Donald came right back the next week, beating Furyk 1-up in Ryder Cup singles in Europe’s victory. “I got a little revenge,” he said. This time the prize for

Donald would be two-fold: His first season with multiple wins on the PGA Tour and the elevation to No. 1 in the world. There were seven of the world’s top 20 players her e this week, a field str ong enough to push Donald past the idle No. 1 Martin Kaymer and No. 2 Lee Westwood. Westwood would take the top spot with a win at the Indonesian Masters,

wher e he holds a fivestroke lead, should Donald falter. The two Englishmen exchanged messages about their play. “Yeah, he sent me a message yester day just saying, ‘Good playing,’ and I sent one back,” Donald said. “We’r e obviously R yder Cup partners and we’r e friends of f the course. We never wish bad on each other.” Donald let a few early nerves show through by hitting his appr oa ch to par -5 second hole out of bounds left, leading to a double-bogey 7 that dr opped him fr om the lead. But Donald steeled himself with two solid par saves on the thir d and fourth holes when his iron play was shaky. He was in the r ough in fr ont of a trap on par -4 third, yet chipped it up to 6 feet for the par. Then, Donald was well right of the green on the par -3 fourth. Again, he saved himself with the short game, chipping inside of 2 feet. Donald r egained his momentum on the par -5 fifth with a 12 footer for birdie. “Those up-and-downs and keeping some momentum going where I wasn’t going completely backwar ds was big for me,” Donald said. Brendon de Jonge (66) and Scott Verplank (67) were two shots behind at 9 under. Masters runner-

up Jason Day (71), Ricky Bar nes (67) and Tommy Gainey (67) were 8 under. Furyk held the lead for much of the back nine at Harbour Town Golf Links, but bogeyed the closing lighthouse hole for a 69 to drop back. Donald, who won the Match Play Championship and was fourth at the Masters, called on the steady, focused style that made him one of the world’s best to move back to the top with birdies on the fifth and seventh holes. Donald’s put his approach on the 16th hole to 3 feet for his final birdie to reach 11 under. Furyk had his chance to hold on to a share of the lead, but sent his second shot on the 18th hole into a bunker behind the green, and could not make the 16-footer for par after blasting out. Furyk and Donald will be pair ed in the final gr oup Sunday for what sets up as a fabulous finish in what might be the final Heritage. A PGA Tour fixtur e since 1969, the tournament is without a title sponsor, which tour and event leaders say is essential for returning in 2012. Both have become Harbour Town masters, combining for 14 rounds in the 60s over the past three tournaments. “I think I’m there, I’m in position and when I play well I feel like this golf course r eally suits my game,” Furyk said.

Levi-Fergus, Senior-Lyle share lead at Legends SAVANNAH, Ga. (AP) — War m, dry weather made for prime scoring conditions at the Liberty Mutual Legends of Golf on Saturday and teams did their best to take advantage in the betterball event. Wayne Levy and Keith Fergus shot 12-under 60 at The Club at Savannah Harbor. They shared the lead at 20under 124 with Peter Senior and Sandy L yle, who combined for a 61 heading into Sunday’s final r ound on the island course in the Savannah River. “You almost feel like you have to make at least a par on every hole,” Senior said. “When you do make a bogey, you feel like you’ve dr opped back two. It’s like a doublebogey in other tournaments.” Playing downwind, several of the Champions Tour players almost were able to drive the 338-yard first hole. “The fact that the balls are running, especially on the par -5s, is certainly a factor in so many birdies,” Fergus said. Still, it was the shorthitting Levi who sparked the team’s surge. He holed out from a greenside bunker for birdie at the ninth and then on No. 11 hit a 3-wood to within 30 feet and sank the putt for an eagle on the 530yard, par-5. “If we can put two balls on the greens (in regulation) and have a chance at birdie, we’ll be in pr etty good shape,” said Levi, whose last win on the senior circuit came in 2004. There were plenty of big-name players within striking range of the leaders. Kenny Perry and Scott Hoch shot a 62 and

were a stroke behind in a tie with first-round co-leaders Tom Kite and Gil Morgan, who had a 63. Bob Tway and T om Pernice Jr. (62) birdied the last three holes to get to 126. They were tied with Ian Baker Finch and Joe Ozaki (62), Corey Pavin and Tom Lehman (62), and first-round co-leaders T ed Schulz and Gary Hallberg (64). T om Watson and Andy North (62) wer e tied at 127 with Hal Sutton and Larry Mize (64). Watson and North have 10 majors between them, eight by Watson. “It’s going to take 29 or 30 under to win this,” L yle said. “You can’t stop, or people will be going right past you.” Ireland’s Des Smyth and England’s Mark James shot 63 for 9under 126 to win the 36-hole Raphael Division. The teams of Ben Crenshaw-Curtis Strange (64) and Gary Koch-Roger Maltbie (63) tied for second at 127. John Cook and Joey Sindelar withdrew from the Legends Division because Sindelar’s bad back. Sindelar injur ed it last week during a tournament in Tampa, but felt well enough to start this event. However, he was in pain after four holes Friday and left the course. Cook played the last 14 holes alone and had the team just thr ee strokes off the lead with a 65. After the round, Sindelar indicated he might be able to play, but he changed his mind early Saturday. Cook said he would have played on as a single for Satur day’s round, but didn’t feel it was fair to finish the tour nament that way.

James Munrex “Rex” Alcorn

Rex Alcorn, 94, passed away peacefully with grace and dignity on Thursday, April 21, 2011 surrounded by his loving family. Services are scheduled for Monday, April 25, 2011 at 2 pm, at Grace Community Church with Pastor Rick Hale officiating. Interment will follow at South Park Cemetery. Rex was bor n October 23, 1916 the seventh of eight children born to Minnie and Ezra Alcorn in Little Rock, Arkansas. Four years later the family moved to Dallas, Texas. While in Dallas, Rex attended the local YMCA where he trained in gymnastics. Upon high school graduation he went to work at Mobile Petroleum Company where he stayed for two years before leaving for the University of Texas in Austin. It was there that Rex lear ned how to tap dance and performed with a group on weekends earning extra money for college. He was also on the University tumbling team and at one football game entertained the crowd completing 50 flip-flops (back handsprings) across the full length of the football field. Rex graduated from the University of Texas in 1941 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Geology. In 1942 Rex enlisted in the Air Force and as a Lieutenant Colonel was sent to England where he became the photography laboratory commander for the Eighth Bomber Command photo lab. He later became the bomber command photography officer for the Ninth Air Force Bomber Command. While in England, Rex was honored to meet the future Queen Elizabeth and other members of the Royal family. During the war, he also traveled to Germany and France and it was in Namur, Belgium

NATION/OBITUARIES that he met his future wife, Bobbi, a professional dancer performing with the United Service Organization, the USO. Shortly after the war, Rex moved to California for two years and worked for Hal Roach Studios. Hal Roach was well known for producing television shows such as Spanky and Our Gang. While there, Rex met many movie stars including George Burns, Bob Hope, Esther Williams, Ingrid Bergman and dear friend Van Heflin. Later, he worked for an engineering firm which had a Navy contract in Guam. He had finally come full circle and was back in the business of geology. Upon his return to the States in 1948, he and Bobbi married in Phoenix, Arizona. They then moved to Dallas and Rex began working for Sun Oil Company while Bobbi pursued modeling. In 1951 the couple was transferred to Roswell where Rex was promoted to district geologist. Sons Dennis and David, and daughter Fawn were all born in New Mexico. Declining another transfer to Texas, Rex became an independent geologist while Bobbi opened her dance studio, the Alcor n Academy of Dance. Rex also taught boys tumbling and acrobatics there for many years. His career was oil and gas, but his heart was in the entertainment industry. Roswellites knew Rex as a gifted Master of Ceremonies as he performed that position for virtually every organization and event in Roswell for 45 years. His most coveted role, however, was to “M.C.” the dance productions for the Alcorn Academy of Dance. His devotion to Bobbi and his family contributed to the 42 year history of the dance studio. Rex was a member of or served on the board of the Roswell YMCA, Roswell Symphony Orchestra, Roswell Tennis Association, First United Methodist Church, Roswell Geological Society, American Association of Petroleum Geologists, New Mexico Geological Society, New Mexico Landman Association, Toastmasters and the Eastern New Mexico State Fair. In his spare time, Rex enjoyed being with his family, playing tennis and traveling. He provided many hours of coaching, wisdom

and fun for his children. Above all, Rex cherished and loved his wife Bobbi and was truly a gentleman’s gentleman. The love and respect that Rex and Bobbi shared was a wonderful gift for their children. The love, generosity, kindness and support he gave his family were unwavering.

‘Birther’ claims force GOP leaders to take a stand

WASHINGTON (AP) — It’s the conspiracy theory that won’t go away. And it’s forcing Republican officials and presidential contenders to pick sides: Do they think Barack Obama was born outside the United States and disqualified to be president? As the Republican candidates tiptoe through the minefield, Democrats are watching. They hope the debate will fire up their liberal base and perhaps tie the eventual GOP nominee to fringe beliefs that swing voters will reject. In recent days several prominent Republicans have distanced themselves, with varying degrees of emphasis, from the false claim that Obama was born in a foreign country. But with a new poll showing that two-thirds of adult Republicans either embrace the claim or are open to it, the GOP leaders for the most part are not calling for a broader ef fort to stamp out the allegations. “It’s a real challenge for the Republican Party and virtually every Republican candidate for president,” contends Democratic pollster Geoff Garin. If it’s not handled well, he said, allimportant independent voters might see Republicans as extreme or irrelevant. Many Americans consider claims of Obama’s for-

eign birth to be preposterous, unworthy of serious debate. Yet the “birther” issue threatens to overshadow the early stages of the GOP effort to choose a presidential nominee for 2012. Real estate mogul Donald Trump has stirred the pot lately, repeatedly saying Obama should provide his original birth certificate. From a political standpoint, it’s impossible to dismiss the matter as conspiratorial fantasy, akin to, say, claims that the 1969 moon landing was staged. In the latest New York Times-CBS News poll, 45 percent of adult Republicans said they believe Obama was born in another country, and 22 percent said they don’t know. Onethird of Republicans said they believe the president is native born. The same poll a year ago found considerably less suspicion among Republicans. A plurality of GOP adults then said Obama was U.S.-born, and 32 percent said they believed he was foreign-born. In the latest poll, about half of all independents said Obama was born in the United States. The other independents were about evenly split between those saying he is foreignborn and those saying they don’t know.

Ten percent of Democrats said Obama was born overseas, and 9 percent were unsure. Obama’s birth certificate indicates he was born in Hawaii in 1961. Newspaper birth announcements at the time reported the birth, and news organizations’ investigations have rebutted the birthers’ claims. The Constitution says a president must be a “natural born citizen.” Trump’s leap to the top tier of potential GOP presidential contenders in recent polls has frustrated party leaders who’d like the birthplace issue to go away. The House’s top Republicans —Speaker John Boehner and Majority Leader Eric Cantor — say

they are satisfied that Obama was born in Hawaii. But they have declined to criticize those who state otherwise, and Boehner has said it’s not his job to tell Americans what to think. T rump, meanwhile, keeps fueling the fire. Even though many people doubt he will run for president, he has forced other Republicans to take stands. Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney and former Sen. Rick Santorum of Pennsylvania have been the most direct in rejecting the birthers’ claims. “I believe the president was born in the United States,” Romney told CNBC. Santorum has no doubt that Obama was born in

Hawaii, and he “believes this debate distracts us from the real issues,” said his spokeswoman, Virginia Davis. Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour accepts the president’s word about his birthplace, his staff said. Former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty told an Iowa audience, “I’m not one to question the authenticity of Barack Obama’s birth certificate.” He added a little jab: ”When you look at his policies, I do question what planet he’s from.” When ABC’s George Stephanopoulos showed a copy of Obama’s birth certificate to Rep. Michele Bachmann of Minnesota, who was ambivalent at first, she said: “Well, then,

that should settle it. ... I take the president at his word.” Former vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin gave mixed signals in a recent Fox News appearance. She praised Trump for “paying for researchers” to dig into claims of Obama’s foreign birth. But she added, ”I think that he was born in Hawaii because there was a birth announcement put in the newspaper.” Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee has dismissed claims that Obama is foreign-bor n, calling them a distraction. But on a February radio show, Huckabee referred to Obama’s “having grown up in Kenya,” the birthplace of the president’s father.

State questions some spending for Hispanic fresco ALBUQUERQUE (AP) — The 4,000-square-foot fresco in the entrance tower to the National Hispanic Cultural Center with its hundreds of historical images is a masterpiece and a state treasure, according to New Mexico’s cultural affairs secretary. Still, she’s looking for a refund of some $380,000 in state money spent on the project, insisting that the Hispanic Cultural Center Foundation used that amount to cover costs that weren’t allowed. The fresco was funded by capital outlay appropriations, which are restricted to construction, Cultural Affairs Secretary Veronica Gonzales wrote in a March 30 letter to foundation president Clara Apodaca.

Apodaca retur ned an unspent $138,360 the next day. However, she told Gonzales the foundation does not believe it’s responsible for reimbursing money already spent because the were expenditures approved by the previous Cultural Affairs administration. The foundation relied on guidance from that agency and the Department of Finance and Administration to ensure contracts complied with capital outlay requirements, Apodaca said in her March 31 response to Gonzales. “The fact is we had a contract with the Department of Cultural Affairs and we listed everything,” she said in an interview with The Associated Press.

NM water problems also drying up farmers’ cash

LAS CRUCES (AP) — The shortage of water in the Rio Grande this year also is hurting southern New Mexico farmers’ pocketbooks. That’s because of having to pump groundwater in addition to paying fees associated with irrigation water from the river. The Las Cruces SunNews reports that farmers in the Elephant Butte Irrigation District pay an annual fee of $80 per acre before the irrigation season starts to stake a claim on a share of the Rio Grande water. They must pay the fee even if they receive only a small amount of water this year rather than the normal 2 acre-feet per acre. An acre-foot is about 326,000 gallons, enough to meet the annual water needs of one to two U.S. households. Fees, called assessments, are the district’s main source of revenue to manage a network of irrigation canals and drainage ditches and pay personnel. Water deliveries haven’t begun because the governing board hasn’t set an official start date. Far mers don’t know how much they’ll get during the season, although officials have said it would be just 3 acre-inches per acre based on what’s currently in storage at Elephant Butte Lake. “Can you imagine the guy that may have several thousands of acres of water rights he’s having to pay for, but he’s not getting any water of it?” said Las Cruces pecan grower Phillip Arnold. “It’s one of those deals where you’re not happy about it, but you’ve got to continue to keep the district in place.” Growers who don’t pay could forfeit their right to future water, according to the irrigation district’s website. In addition, unpaid bills can lead to a lien on the property, and the district could foreclose on it. The district board plans a special meeting Friday,

and likely will decide on an initial allotment for the irrigation season, said irrigation district manager Gary Esslinger. The assessments farmers pay account for most of the district’s $8 million annual budget, said Esslinger. Esslinger said he’s cut personnel from 107 employees to 93, trimmed equipment purchases and reduced overtime to save money. District employees haven’t seen a pay raise in four years, he said. The district cannot just shut down to save money in years when there’s little water, said Las Cruces pecan far mer John Clayshulte. Infrastructure must be maintained, and it would be impractical to lay of f ditch-riders — staff members who shunt water from one canal to the next — because of the qualifications needed for the job, he said. Elephant Butte Irrigation District is run by a board of farmers, and “I’m going on the assumption that, if they could find a cheaper way to run the system, they probably would because they’re affected by it,” Clayshulte said. Far mers also said the financial outlook is made worse by the need for water in a short water year. That means they must either pay another grower to use that farmer’s allotment of water or turn to electric-, natural gas- and diesel-run groundwater pumps. The expense of pumping will be significant this year with rising fuel prices, Clayshulte said. Fuel costs alone will range from $30 to $40 per acre, and if someone must re-drill or rebuild a well, the cost will increase to $60 or $70 per acre, he said. It costs from $60,000 to $80,000 to replace a well, Clayshulte said. His own operation, he said, has no choice but to pump water.

“We followed the contract exactly.” “The mistakes of the fresco allocation were not made by the foundation, but on the part of previous DCA and DFA administrations, as both of the departments should be well-versed in how capital outlay should be spent,” she wrote Gonzales. Cultural Affairs is not questioning money spent on the fresco on the concave walls of the torreon, or tower, that greets visitors to the cultural center in Albuquerque. The images on the fresco, which opened in October after nine years in the making, depict 3,000 years of Hispanic history from Europe to the American Southwest. The project received a total of $812,500 in two state appropriations in 2007 and 2008. Rather, Cultural Affairs wants the foundation to repay $241,494 — in addition to the money already returned — contending it went for imper missible spending, including $162,500 in administrative costs. Apodaca said those costs included salaries for herself and support staff and other costs to monitor the project. She met with state officials earlier this month and “all agreed there’s been some mistakes made,” Apodaca said. Gonzales said her agency has taken control of the project and initiated an independent audit of both her agency and the foundation to determine where failures occurred. Said Apodaca, “We’ve been very honest and straightforward, we com-

piled all the invoices. We can account for every penny we spent. What was left over, we returned, and if the audit finds we need to retur n more, we will return it.” That, however, would require fundraising, she said. Gonzales expects the audit to be finished in two to three weeks. She said it’s unlikely the amount her agency seeks will go down. The memorandum of understanding Apodaca originally signed with Cultural Affairs included a full-length documentary, educational materials and art books. “If they disallow some of these things, we might be disputing it because it’s listed,” Apodaca said. Cultural Af fairs, in a December review during

the previous administration, found the foundation adequately accounted for the money and complied with contractual requirements, state laws and regulations, Apodaca wrote. But Gonzales concluded there were serious mistakes with the funds’ distribution. Apodaca wants the foundation and the cultural center to have a say in how the returned money is spent. She listed certain needs, including fixing leaks in the torreon’s roof, lighting and work on the floor. Gonzales and Finance and Administration Secretary Richard May agreed to some infrastructure spending in an April 6 meeting with Apodaca and put that in writing last Monday. Apodaca said the fresco

also needs audio to tell visitors what they’re seeing. “When you walk in, it’s a beautiful exhibit, but you don’t understand,” she said. Equipping visitors with audio would explain the magnitude of history that the fresco represents. The foundation did a DVD on the fresco’s October opening, but hasn’t finished a planned onehour documentary that already has cost more than $69,000. Historians have been interviewed and the script is finished, Apodaca said. The foundation also planned a book and brochures. Gonzales said capital appropriations don’t allow such education-related spending.

This clock, donated by Nancy Phillips, will be up for auction at the ninth annual Make Time for Kids event.


It’s time to make time CASA’s ninth annual Make Time for Kids event is Friday, April 29


With every tick of the clock, another second passes. Most people hardly notice these ticks — 3,600 of them each hour, 86,400 of them each day. But for those children in Roswell and Chaves County subject to abuse or neglect, each of these ticks stands for another moment passing without a loving hug or kiss, another moment passing without affection, another moment passing without a lack of fear of an abusive parent. But the ticking of the clocks can also help make the world a better place for such children. Chaves County CASA’s Make Time for Kids, an event featuring an auction of clocks made by local artists, craftspeople and community members, raises funds to support CASA’s programs. The ninth annual event will be held at 6 p.m., Friday, April 29, at the Roswell Convention and Civic Center, 912 N. Main St. The event, sponsored by CASA, Taylor Orthodontics, Bank of the Southwest, Bullock’s Jewelers, Eastern New Mexico Medical Center, the United Way, Fulkerson Services, Pecos Flavors Winery, Leprino and Rosemary and Rolla Hinkle, is free and open to the public. Proceeds will benefit CASA’s programs, which serve children who are abused, neglected, abandoned, sexually molested, at-risk or who are victims of domestic violence. Many of the 1,100 children CASA serves each year are profoundly underprivileged, according to CarrieLeigh Cloutier, Chaves County CASA executive director. Children at risk may benefit tremendously by the Make Time for Kids event, where more than 100 clocks of all shapes, sizes and mediums will be auctioned off, Cloutier said. “(Make Time for Kids) promises to be bigger and better than ever,” Cloutier said, adding that people often continue donating clocks for the auction until the day of the event. Some of the clocks up for auction this year include a hand-embroi-

dered pillow clock donated by Brothers and Sisters in Stitches, a bird clock donated by Nancy Phillips and a clock shaped like a pair of legs donated by Darla Perry. A basket full of dog toys, treats and other dog-related items will also be auctioned off to raise money for Emma,

the CASA therapy dog, Cloutier said. The basket was donated by Roswell Livestock and Farm Supply, Paws, Claws & Hooves and Judy Ar mstrong. Those wanting to help by donating a clock are welcome to do so; clockworks and clock hands are available

at Taylor Orthodontics, 200 E. Wilshire Blvd., Suite E. Finished clocks may be dropped off there as well. A “Star Wars” comic book collection has also been donated for auction by Jody Alpers. “It’s apparently a really nifty collection,” Cloutier said. In addition to the clocks, those attending the event may also buy tickets for a chance to win a number of “Make Time ...” prize packages. Such packages include a set of golf clubs, a room redecoration, a spa weekend, a spa day for 13 and a number of hunting packages, including ones for wild pigs, deer, turkeys and Barbary sheep. “These hunts are fully outfitted with guides and food and equipment,” Cloutier said. Prize packages also include a home-cooked meal for two by Cindy Ragsdale and a bouquet a month by Barringer’s. A live auction of a “money tree” — a tree decorated with lottery tickets and scratchers — will also be held. Because of “dramatic” budget cuts from Santa Fe, the need is greater than ever, Cloutier said. “These are tough times. ... We have received huge cuts from Santa Fe. We are terrified that children are at terrible risk of being abused or neglected,” Cloutier said. “This event is key and every dollar helps.” But, Cloutier added, participation in any form is helpful. Whether by bidding on a clock, buying tickets for the prize drawings or volunteering with CASA, any help is appreciated, she said. Plus, she noted, the event is always fun. “One thing I love about our fundraisers is that they’re fun,” Cloutier said. “You don’t even have to buy anything, you can just come and enjoy the event.” For those who find bidding makes them hungry, Roswell Regional Hospital is catering the food. “Oh my gosh, the menu is amazing,” Cloutier said. For more information about the event or to inquire about making a donation or volunteering, call CASA at 625-0112 or log onto, or to inquire about making a clock, call Taylor Orthodontics at 622-4369.

Kid’s independence comes when parents learn to let go

QUESTION: There’s so much on the news about child abductions, murders, etc. that I often find myself in a panic when it comes to my tween girls. How can I overcome the urge to just lock them in their rooms until they reach adulthood? JIM: We hear so much bad news today that we often feel like there’s danger lurking everywhere. A survey by the Mayo Clinic revealed that these are the five things parents are most worried about: 1) kidnapping; 2) school snipers; 3) terrorists; 4) dangerous strangers; and 5) drugs. Those things certainly are scary. But now consider the five things that, in reality, are the most likely to cause death to children under the age of eighteen, according to the Centers for Disease Control: 1) car accidents; 2) homicide — usually at the hands of someone they know; 3) child abuse; 4) suicide; and 5) drowning. These are frightening, too, but they probably aren’t the first things that come to mind when you worry about your girls. As The New York Times has observed, there’s a disconnect going on here. In the age of 24-hour news, we hear horrible stories of abductions and school shooters, but the fact is that in the grand scheme of things, those things are rare — they are the worst-case scenarios. Thank goodness! Statistically, the least-safe thing we can do with our kids is drive them somewhere. And yet most of us do that every day. According to Christie Barnes, author of “The Paranoid Parents Guide,” moms and dads are worrying more at a time when statistics for homicide, kidnapping

WEDDING AND ANNIVERSARIES Michael and Carolyn Drew Michael D. Drew and Carolyn D. Drew celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary on April 22, 2011. They were united in marriage at the Trinity United Methodist Church by the Reverend Kenneth Ford in April 1961. The groom is the son of Walter Dark and Margaret (Drew) Dark. The bride, daughter of Lois and Merrill Dean Gibbs, was given away by her father Merrill Dean Gibbs; best man, friend of the groom, was Nelson Clyde Hicks and matron of honor was Susan Gibbs Stephens, sister of the bride. Mike and Carolyn met while Mike was stationed at Walker Air Force Base and Carolyn was employed at Mountain Bell Telephone Company. Mike and Carolyn have been blessed with one son, Michael T.; one granddaughter, Heather Marie Drew Albin; one special grandson-in-law, Joshua Albin and one great-grandson, Jonathan Albin. After Mike was discharged from the Air Force, he immediately found employment in Roswell and in 1975 started to work at the Roswell Fire Department. Mike retired from the Fire Department in 1992 attaining the rank of battalion chief. He was able to spend some quality time with his mom until she passed away. Mike also spent many hours doing the house cleaning, keeping up with the maintenance of the yard and vehicles while Carolyn continued to work. This allowed them to spend the weekends doing fun stuff together. Carolyn was employed at several businesses as a receptionist until she retired in December of 2003 from Century 21 Home Planning. Mike and Carolyn have enjoyed working together on old cars and fixing up


and even traffic deaths are actually going down. Certainly, there are dangers out there. And even if some of them are rare, we don’t want our kids to be that one exception to the rule. We need to take the appropriate measures to protect them. But we also need to be careful not to be overly fearful for their safety. That can be paralyzing. It’s all about finding the proper balance. ** ** ** QUESTION: Our daughter is 14 and wants to do group dates. Is that appropriate for a 14-year-old, and when would you recommend single or group dating? JULI: As you wrestle through decisions regarding your daughter and dating, I’d encourage you to consider a few questions. First, what do you mean by “group dating”? There’s a big difference between a group of 14-year-olds going to Denny’s for pancakes after the school play and teens hanging out in someone’s basement unsupervised. In my opinion, any mixed-gender interaction among 14year-olds should be supervised by adults. Even the most levelheaded 14-year-old is not mature enough to handle

You might have seen the “Deuce” in the Scale Auto Magazine a few years back. Mike and Carolyn also enjoyed their “real cars” and on many Saturday and Sunday afternoons could be found at the local drag strip either racing one of their cars or rooting for their son and his race car.

the emotional and physical pressures that come with an exclusive dating relationship or with unsupervised contact with the opposite sex. Every parent will have a different opinion about the magic age when his or her daughter is ready to date, whether alone or in a group. Wise parents might even have a different answer for different children, as some mature more quickly than others. Whatever age you decide to let your daughter date, prepare her for it. Think about it this way: Many states require 50 or more supervised hours behind the wheel, plus a written and driving test before issuing a driver’s license to a teenager. Why don’t we have a similar approach to dating? Observe your daughter in mixed-gender situations. How does she behave with the opposite sex? Have you talked to her about what to do if she gets into a compromising situation? Has she shared with you why she wants to date and what her standards are? Have you considered your role in helping her screen potential boyfriends and in supervising dating relationships? Dating can be a wonderful aspect of teen life, but it is also fraught with serious dangers. Treat it that way! ** ** ** 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.

What is a damaged metabolism? Many people have a hard time losing weight or maintaining their weight because they have a damaged metabolism. If you have struggled with diet after diet, exercise program after exercise program and nothing seems to work, this may be why. Metabolism is scientifically defined as the sum total of the breaking down and the building up processes in the body. If you have a damaged metabolism, you are breaking down faster than you are building up. Your metabolic rate has been lowered by years of stress and possibly over-exercising and not eating enough food or enough of the right foods. If you have a degenerative disease of aging — diabetes, osteoporosis, thyroid problems, heart disease, chronic fatigue — these are clear signs that you have a damaged metabolism. If you have adrenal burnout from years of unrelenting stress, and/or you have insulin resistance, you definitely have a damaged metabolism. About 20-30 percent of people under the age of 35 and 70-80 percent of people over the age of 35 have a damaged metabolism. If you have a damaged metabolism, you will have to eat and exercise differently from someone with a healthy metabolism in order to heal your metabolism and lose weight. People with a damaged metabolism will need to keep their heart rate below 90 bpm when they do cardiovascular exercise. That is because the body has to release the stress hormones cortisol and adrenalin in order to keep the heart rate above 90 bpm, such as in running or spinning classes. If you have a damaged metabolism, you may find yourself gaining weight if you eat more carbohydrates than your body can handle. If you have a damaged metabolism, you must focus on becoming healthy and rebuilding your metabolism in order to lose weight and be thin and healthy the rest of your life. Follow these five steps: 1. Nutrition. Eat five mini meals every day of real food, not products. You can download free recipes on our website, as well as a shopping list of healthy foods, at http :// 2. Rest. Once you are out of complete exhaustion, make sure you are getting 10 hours of rest each and every day. 3. Hormonally appropriate exercise. Begin to move in ways that actually heal your metabolism, not break it down. Avoid high intensity cardio where your heart rate exceeds 90 beats per minute. Include relaxing yoga — NOT hot yoga like Bikram — tai chi, qi gong and walking. As your energy level improves, lift weights 2-3 times per week for 20-45 minutes at a time. Rest between sets. 4. Taper off toxic chemicals. In short, clean up your lifestyle. 5. Be patient! Many people have spent the past 10, 20, 30 or even 40 years starving themselves, over-exercising, being excessively stressed, taking drugs and being inconsistent with their exercise program. The key is to get on a good program and stay on it. Excellence is built on a life of good habits. “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.

Gulf disaster renews debate over Arctic oil spill

WASHINGTON (AP) — A year after the largest offshore oil spill in U.S. history, some experts are pondering the next doomsday scenario — a massive oil well blowout in the icy waters off Alaska’s northern coast. Like the deepest waters of the Gulf, the shallow but frigid seas off Alaska are a new frontier for oil and gas exploration. The reserves are large but come with risks. With no roads connecting remote coastal towns, storms and fog that can ground aircraft, no deep-water ports for ships and the nearest Coast Guard station about 1,000 miles away — it would be nearly impossible to respond on the scale that was needed last year to stop a runaway oil well and clean up the mess. That means the burden to respond would rest to an even greater degree on the company doing the drilling. Like a backcountry camper, an oil company drilling off Alaska would have to bring all the equipment needed to the isolated drilling site. And the federal government, at least in the early stages, would be far away from the scene. Unlike the Gulf, where tens of thousands of oil wells and runoff have tainted the waters for decades, a spill in the Arctic risks tainting a pristine and sensitive landscape, one that has not been as well studied and where drilling in federal waters is limited. That makes it harder to deter mine what toll a spill would have on the endangered polar bears, migrating whales and other wildlife that make use of the oilrich seas. While critics of offshore drilling in Alaska have long raised the specter of a massive spill, the accident in the Gulf last April highlighted shortcomings in spill preparedness. In the aftermath, experts such as Thad Allen — the government’s point person on the Gulf spill — and the presidential oil spill commission have questioned whether companies and

the government are adequately prepared to overcome the challenges of responding to an Arctic spill. “We ought to be extremely careful about the Arctic, because we know that spill response and the Coast Guard cannot get to the Arctic very well,” Cherry Murray, a member of the presidential oil spill panel, told a committee on ocean energy safety this week. “And cleanup is going to be considerably more difficult.” Despite lessons learned from the massive response to the Macondo well blowout on April 20 a year ago, some of the techniques deployed — skimming, burning and the application of chemical dispersants — either wouldn’t work in the frigid seas and stormy skies off Alaska or would be less effective. Booms, depending on the degree of ice cover, can freeze. Ice can also clog the suction devices used to mop up the spill, reducing how much oil can be collected. Depending on the time of year a spill occurred, even daylight can be scarce. “The problem is on what order of magnitude are you prepared to respond, and I don’t really think we know that,” said Allen, now a senior fellow at the Rand Corp. think tank. “That doesn’t mean that we shouldn’t proceed, but everyone needs to know that’s a very, very difficult place to operate.” Allen, in an interview with The Associated Press, listed the challenges: The largest city anywhere close to the drilling, Barrow, has extremely limited motel space; there is no hangar for aircraft, a must in stor my and variable weather, and the shallow water means no port. “One has to wonder, at the height of the Macondo spill, we engaged over 45,000 people and thousands of thousands of boats,” Allen said. “Depending on the type of problem you might encounter there, the lack of infrastructure, lack of forward operating bases, austerity of the envi-

President Barack Obama last month set a target of reducing foreign oil imports by a third by 2025. To reach that goal, he will need the oil and gas off Alaska, where an estimated 27 billion barrels of oil lies beneath the ocean floor. That’s 2.5 times the amount produced in the entire Gulf of Mexico since 1990. Yet despite these huge reserves, the costs of drilling in the Arctic, along with permitting delays and lawsuits have resulted in fewer than 100 wells being drilled in federal waters there. Only about three dozen of those are in the Beaufort and Chukchi seas off Alaska’s northern and northwest coasts. In December, in part because of concerns about responding to an oil spill, Interior Secretary Ken Salazar canceled the sale of new oil and gas leases in the Arctic. And a federal court recently ordered the agency to go back

and analyze the risks of a large oil spill for a 2008 Chukchi lease sale, including how it would be handled. While the department said it would honor existing leases, delays in permitting have caused the only company that was seeking to drill a new exploratory well in federal waters off Alaska to postpone those plans until 2012. That company, Shell Oil Co., says it will be fully prepared as the law requires to handle a worst-case spill, in the unlikely event that one occurs. Peter Velez, Shell’s oil spill response manager, told the AP that equipment would be stationed offshore with the drilling rig and could start skimming oil within an hour of a spill. The company also will have onsite back-up blowout preventers, the valve tower on the sea floor that is supposed to shut a well in the event of a blowout. The one on the Deepwater Horizon rig in the Gulf failed to halt the flow of oil and gas. And in another difference from the Gulf disaster, a new capping and containment system still under construction could reach its target within a day. In BP’s

case in the Gulf, the equipment that eventually contained the spill before the well was killed needed to be built from scratch. “We will have enough equipment at each of the locations to meet, and in most cases exceed, the worst-case discharge,” Velez said. In the spill last April, the worst seemed to happen — a super deep well in about a mile of water and nearly 3 1/2 miles below the ocean floor erupted, spilling as much as 2.4 million gallons of oil into the Gulf each day. A spill of that magnitude is much less likely in the Arctic, according to experts, because drilling would occur in shallow water, where pressures are much less than in the deep-water Gulf. Ice, which can be an obstacle to clean up, can also act as a natural barrier to a spill. And the frigid water means the oil would be slower to degrade, buying more time to apply dispersants, burn off oil and use other cleanup techniques — though potentially exposing wildlife to more toxins. Exploratory drilling, as Shell points out, would be limited to the open water season from July-October.

RedBrick Pizza to hold grand opening party May 2 JONATHAN ENTZMINGER RECORD STAFF WRITER

RedBrick Pizza opened its doors in Roswell in January, and will be celebrating its grand opening on Monday, May 2. The pizza parlor that boasts “the highest quality ingredients” will host festivities from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. The Roswell Chamber of Commerce Redcoats will be on hand to inaugurate the business into the city. The state only has five RedBrick stores, according to RedBrick Pizza Master Developer Neil Bhakta. The California-based franchise has established a reputation across the U.S. for offering more than just pizza. The parlor offers beer, gelato, salads and wine in addition to using hand-rolled dough, Italian cheeses, and premium gourmet ingredients. Bhakta touched on a few of the pizza franchise’s keystones. “We’re known for our fire roasted RedBrick pizza,” Bhakta said. “One of our mottos is, ‘You deserve the best.’” Offering quality food is just one facet of the RedBrick brand. The Roswell store gives back to the community through nonprofit charities, like CASA, and embodies the spirit of volunteerism. “We try to support the community as much as we can,” Bhakta said. “We’ve done a lot of fundraisers.” He added that on charity cafe days, the store donate 15 to 20 percent of proceeds to local organization. The grand opening will also feature giveaways, lunch discounts, raffles and other special activities, with participation from other local radio media. For more information, call 623-6300.



Merchandising Consultant to speak at Chamber of Commerce

Quintana said. She practiced in Albuquerque for 10 years, then moved to Roswell about a month ago, attracted by the opportunity to work with Whitwam and Wenner. She says she enjoys the slower pace of Roswell as compared with Albuquerque and appreciates Roswell Regional Hospital and the medical staff. She also says she appreciates the hospital’s focus on patient care, which is more than just rhetoric. Other hospitals say they are focused on patient care but it’s not “necessarily the culture,” she said. Quintana performs general surgery, including gall bladder and appendix removal, hernia repair and surgery to treat breast disease. She says she enjoys treating the endocrine system, the thyroid gland and especially the parathyroid glands. When she is not in the hospital, Quintana said she enjoys hiking, bicycling, yoga, cooking and traveling.

ARTESIA— To help celebrate 40 years in business, Devon Energy has launched $40K for Kids, a program that offers a $40,000 grant to a New Mexico school or other nonprofit educational organization. Devon will award a total of eight $40,000 grants in areas where the company has field operations, including New Mexico. “This is the perfect way for us to express our appreciation for the communities that surround our operations,” Don Mayberry, Devon production superintendent in Southeast New Mexico, said. “Contributing to projects that support youth and education is important to us. The ‘$40K for Kids Program’ reaffirms that commitment.” Schools and 501(c)(3) organizations are eligible. Submissions must be for an education-based project or program that is either located in or affects an area where Devon has field operations. Programs or projects that support higher education are ineligible, as are requests for individual support. Devon will select the top applications within each state and make visits to learn more about the organization and its plan for the grant money. Winners will be notified in November 2011. The $40K for Kids entry form and essay questions can be found at in the “Community Relations” section of the website. Entry packets must be received by June 10. Applications may be mailed to Devon Energy at 777 Main St., Ste. 2200, Fort Worth, TX 76102. For more information, email Amanda Beard at

Roswell Regional Hospital is now offering physical therapy and has two new physical therapists. Courtney Leeser and Shrillia Luna have been on staff since the beginning of April and are offering outpatient therapy, including post-operative therapy and rehabilitation conditioning, in addition to in-hospital therapy. Leeser said a patient must have a physician’s order to receive physical therapy. The therapists also take patients referred by the Roswell Regional Family Care Walk-In Clinic, 2335 N. Main St. Leeser grew up in El Paso and did her undergraduate work at Texas Tech and the University of Texas at El Paso where she graduated summa cum laude. She was president of her physical therapy class while earning a master’s of physical therapy from UTEP. Luna, a Roswell native and Goddard High School graduate, received a bachelor’s degree in sports and exercise science from West Texas A&M University, then attended the graduate program at UTEP, where she completed her master’s of physical therapy. Luna worked a year in what is now University Medical Center in El Paso, where she dealt with trauma-1 level patients and became experienced in wound care and working with acute orthopedic and ICU patients.

NY MoMath museum aims to add to math appreciation

NEW YORK (AP) — Mathematics. It’s a subject that can elicit groans and exclamations of “boring.� But Glen Whitney, a former hedge-fund quantitative analyst, is betting he can change that with a formula that looks like this: math (equals) discovery (equals) beauty (equals) fun. Whitney is planning to open the only museum in the United States dedicated to mathematics. MoMath, which will center on the wonders of mathematics and its connections with art, science and finance, is scheduled to open in New York City sometime in 2012, with the help of a $2 million grant from Google. There are many great math teachers in the United States, but the subject’s joy of discovery is lost to the “tyranny of the curriculum and the almost treadmill of standardized testing,� Whitney said. “That sensibility has sucked out the life of the subject,� he said. “Math is evolving. It’s an act of human endeavor. There’s beauty� in its many patterns. The museum will provide the element of surprise and excitement that textbooks cannot, added Cindy Lawrence, the museum’s chief of operations who directs an extracurricular mathematics program for gifted students through a joint venture with Brookhaven National Laboratory. The $30 million museum will occupy the ground floor and lower level of a 20-story building on East 26th Street in Chelsea; $22 million already has been raised. The two executives have been testing the waters of creating a museum of mathematics for nearly two years with MathMidway, a traveling exhibit that has been shown in seven cities, and counting. It is currently at the Museum of Nature & Science in Dallas through May 10, where school children recently scampered through the kind of car nival themed, brightly colored exhibits planned for MoMath. Tents along one wall offered a variety of activities including a depiction of a ship on a moving circle that can only be “righted�

by placing equal amounts of weight on each side; a rollercoaster track that kids can adjust to test out what angle gets the fastest time; and a harmonograph, which uses pendulums to draw a geometric image. “It’s just a very hands-on, exciting exhibit� that appeals to many ages, said Jason Treadway, an educator at the Dallas museum. “I think one of the great things about it is you’re basically learning about math without knowing you’re learning about math.� Another activity, “Pedal on the Petals,� lets visitors ride square-wheeled tricycles on a track with a series of curves shaped like a huge sunflower. A nearby sign that proclaims “There’s a road for every wheel!� also asks “Do you dare to ride on a square?� The sign poses the question: “Why is the ride so smooth?� The concept is based on a mathematical theorem that there’s a way to contour a road surface so that wheels of that shape will roll smoothly. “Visitors can see — and physically experience — how math makes the seemingly impossible not only possible, but fun,� said Whitney. “The kids actually get to explore math rather than be told about it,� said Marea Kelly, who brought her fifth graders to the exhibition. “It’s really going to help the kids who don’t see the concepts right away.� She said it made perfect sense to her students as soon as they rode the tricycle. These and about 50 other interactive activities at the new museum will also demonstrate math’s collaborative process. “Mathematicians very often work together,� said Lawrence. “We’re trying to build on that� with exhibits that encourage collaboration. Math museums exist in many other countries, including Italy, Germany, Korea and France, but none in the United States, perhaps reflecting the low regard for the subject in this country.

US Army troops test new combat uniforms for female GIs

AP Photo

A unisex Navy flight uniform is held by a woman off-camera in Washington, April 13.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Imagine U.S. combat troops and aviators wearing body armor that fits so poorly that it’s tough to position a weapon to shoot, combat uniforms with knee pads that hit around mid-shin and flight suits that make it nearly impossible to urinate while in flight. For many female troops, it’s just another day on the battlefield as they wear clothing and protective gear designed primarily for men. Each of these issues is now getting some attention from the military. Seven hundred female Army troops are testing a new combat uniform for women with shorter sleeves and knee pads in the right place for their generally shorter legs. A committee on women’s issues has recommended that flight suits be redesigned for both men and women so it’s unnecessary to completely disrobe before urinating. And engineers have been looking at ways to design body armor that better fits the contours of a woman’s body. Some military women are reluctant to embrace changes that would set them apart from their male colleagues, but several for mer and current military women said the changes certainly beat the consequences of the current one-piece flight suits or being unable to engage in battle or defend themselves because of uncooperative gear. Female troops are about 20 percent more likely than their

male counterparts to report musculoskeletal disorders, and poorly fitting body armor could at least in part be a factor. For female aviators, dehydration can be a hazard if they opt not to drink water before flights, and those who wait too long to use the bathroom can experience urinary problems. Some of the challenges for women came up in focus groups conducted with both male and female service members, a majority of whom reported that the equipment given to females was inadequate, “including, but not limited to poor quality or outdated equipment, lack of necessary equipment, tardy issue of equipment, and equipment not sized or designed for women,� according to a 2009 report by the Defense Department Advisory Committee on Women in the Services. The report noted that the problems weren’t always confined to women. “When your gear doesn’t fit right, it’s going to make you more vulnerable and less effective,� said Spc. Chandra Banks, 27, an Army reservist who has done two tours in Iraq and now works as a research fellow for the nonprofit Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America. Banks said she noticed improvements in her body armor during her second deployment, but because the armor was so large it still chafed her hips when she had to sit for hours in a Humvee, and aggravated a knee injury because of the armor’s

unevenly distributed weight. She said better -fitting body armor would also make it easier to position a rifle or machine gun for shooting. In January, the congressionally appointed Military Leadership Diversity Commission recommended to Congress and President Barack Obama that women be allowed to fully serve in combat. The reality, however, is that women already are serving in the war zones in positions such as truck drivers and helicopter pilots. About 14 percent of all service members are women, and about 220,000 women have gone to the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. The Army is well under way in developing a woman’s combat uniform that would replace the “unisex� one designed primarily for a man’s body. It is similar to combat unifor ms in women’s sizes offered by the Air Force and Marines. The Ar my Unifor m Board will vote this fall on whether to adopt it. The goal is to give the approximately 70,000 women in the Army a better fitting and more professional looking uniform that doesn’t stand out when they are in formation, said Maj. Sequana Robinson, assistant product manager for clothing at the Army’s Program Executive Office Soldier at Fort Belvoir, Va. A better fitting uniform “raises motivation and the performance level because a person feels more professional,� Robinson said. “So,

it’s the same uniform. It is not, not a form-fitting uniform. It’s just a uniform that’s based on female body dimensions. It’s less material because women are different than men.� For the first time since 1988, engineers at the Natick Soldier Research, Development and Engineering Center in Massachusetts are doing an anthropometric survey of thousands of troops to better gauge body shapes and measurements within the Army’s force. They are measuring 13,000 troops, including 5,000 female active duty and National Guard members. The measurements are expected to help the center design body armor that better fits women. If the body armor is too small, it can be painful. If it’s too large, it can be difficult to walk in or otherwise maneuver. Former Army Staff Sgt. Maria Canales, 30, of New York City said during her Iraq deployment in 2005-2006 she first wore body armor that was painfully snug, but after she upgraded to a larger size she worried about her safety. “Thank God, nothing happened where my body was compromised, but it was looser and I guess that’s the disadvantage because what if ... we have contact, it would be easier for something to happen,� Canales said.

Queen Victoria’s gown offers Greece hopes for tourism rebound hints on Kate Middleton’s amid crisis

AP Photo

An undated photo released by the Royal Collection shows a conservator puts finishing touches to the simple but stunning wedding dress worn by HRH Princess Margaret when she married Lord Snowdon in 1960, April 21. LONDON (AP) — The celebrated silk-and-lace bridal gown worn by Queen Victoria offers some clues about what Kate Middleton will wear when she walks down the aisle on April 29, even if much has changed since Victoria’s low-key wedding in 1840. Victoria didn’t have to get married in front of live TV cameras with thousands of reporters and photographers camped outside. And she tied the knot in a relatively small private chapel, not the cavernous chamber of London’s Westminster Abbey. That means a small basic dress like Victoria’s simply won’t do for Middleton, said Joanna Marschner, senior curator at Britain’s Historic Royal Palaces, which takes care of Victoria’s gown and other dresses worn by past

royal brides. “The dress has to rise to the occasion,” said Marschner. “It has to be big, it has to stand up to the scale of the space and stand up to the scrutiny of all those eyes. It has to carry the day, it has to say something about our time, and it has to be the choice of the bride. She has to be comfortable in it.” Despite intense interest, the identity of Middleton’s designer and the style of her dress have remained a closely held secret. Palace officials say Middleton wants to surprise fiance Prince William when she steps out of her Rolls-Royce to cross the Abbey threshold. Marschner would not make any predictions, except to say that the designer must respect the decorum

associated with Westminster Abbey. That means a strapless gown or a plunging neckline are unlikely — Middleton will probably have to wait for an evening reception at Buckingham Palace if she wants to wear something more revealing. The only generally accepted guideline is that the designer will be British. Just as Victoria used English lace and silk woven in London to show support for British industry, Middleton faces overwhelming pressure to use a British designer. Attention has focused on Sarah Burton, creative director at the prominent Alexander McQueen house, or Sophie Cranston, the lesser -known founder of the Libelula label or Bruce Oldfield, a prominent favorite of the late Princess Diana.

ATHENS, Greece (AP) — Many tourists see Athens as a launching pad for visiting the beaches and cute whitewashed buildings of the Greek islands. And the Aegean archipelago can be a great escape, especially during the nation’s current economic crisis. But those willing to put Athens on their itinerary could be rewarded with bargains on everything from restaurants and hotels to souvenirs, if they are willing to step into the heart of the recession. For some, the risk of strikes and protests against Greece’s tough austerity measures isn’t worth it, especially since many have turned violent. For others, the risk is small in one of the world’s oldest cities, which of fers ancient landmarks such as the Acropolis with its 2,500year-old marble temples. Ger man tourist Dorothea Lueddeckens didn’t worry about the risk of upheaval. “Probably it’s more dangerous to be on a German autobahn. Protests don’t suddenly come out of thin air,” she said. The 44year -old professor said she, her husband and three children also chose Greece to help a struggling country, knowing it relies heavily on tourism — which provides more than 15 percent of annu-

al economic output. The Greek government is reaching out to visitors, reducing sales tax on all tourism-related spending, while scrapping landing, takeoff and stopover fees at regional airports through 2011. Analysts and industry officials expect a rise in tourist revenues, after last year’s 8 percent drop. A recent British survey also found good restaurant prices at the popular resort island of Corfu. It compared the price of a three-course evening meal for two in Greece and 13 other countries, including a bottle of house wine. The price on the northwester n island came in at $62.50, fourth from the bottom of the list and far cheaper than cities such as Miami; Sorrento, Italy; Brittany, France; and Brighton, England. But in Athens, tourists have to know where to look. “Prices have dropped, and there are good offers available for hotels and restaurants,” said travel agent Panayiotis Georgakarakos. “If you book in advance, you can find deals.” But he also said hoteliers are feeling the pinch. “The cost of living here has increased, it has not fallen,” Georgakarakos said.

Sony chairman credited with developing CDs dies

TOKYO (AP) — As a young man, aspiring opera singer Norio Ohga wrote to Sony to complain about the quality of its tape recorders. That move changed the course of his life, as the company promptly recruited the man whose love of music would shape the development of the compact disc and transfor m the Japanese electronics maker into a global software and entertainment empire. Sony’s president and chair man from 1982 to 1995, Ohga died Saturday in Tokyo of multiple organ failure, the company said. He was 81. Ohga connection to music steered his work. The flamboyant music connoisseur insisted the CD be designed at 12 centimeters (4.8 inches) in diameter to hold 75 minutes worth of music — in order to store Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony in its entirety. From the start, Ohga recognized the potential of the CD’s superior sound quality. In the 1970s, when Ohga insisted CDs would eventually replace record albums, skeptics scoffed. Herbert von Karajan, Stevie Wonder and Herbie Hancock spoke up in defense of Sony’s digital sound. Sony sold the world’s first CD in 1982 and CDs overtook LP record sales in Japan five years later. The specifications are still used today and fostered the devices developed since. “It is no exaggeration to attribute Sony’s evolution beyond audio and video products into music,

movies and game, and subsequent transfor mation into a global entertainment leader to Ohga-san’s foresight and vision,” Sony Corp. Chairman and CEO Howard Stringer said Saturday, using the Japanese honorific. Some decisions made during Ohga’s presidency, such as the $3.4 billion purchase of Hollywood studio Columbia Pictures, were criticized as unwise and costly at the time. But Ohga’s focus on music, films and video games as a way to enrich the electronics business helped create Sony’s success in his era. “We are always chasing after things that other companies won’t touch,” Ohga said in a 1998 interview with The Associated Press. “That is a big secret to our success.” Shattering the stereotype of the staid Japanese executive, the debonair Ohga was never shy, his hair neatly slicked back, his boisterous manner exuding the fiery yet naive air of an artist. His persona added a touch of glamour to Sony’s image at a time when Japan had global ambitions. An experienced pilot, Ohga at times flew the plane himself for business trips. A gourmet, he boasted about his roast beef. His hobby was cruising on his yacht. Joey Carbone, a Los Angeles-based composer and producer of dozens of Japanese pop songs, met Ohga in 1986 after Carbone wrote several hits for commercials for everything

from cassette tapes to Honda scooters on Sony’s music label. He remembers Ohga as an outgoing, internationalminded executive who could talk about business and a wide variety of music with equal aplomb. Ohga’s of fice was covered with photos of himself with different artists, both Japanese and international. “He looked like an actor. He was very outgoing,” Carbone said Saturday. “He was very, how can I say it — not introverted. He was always talking, always smiling and laughing. He seemed to have a real love of life and music. He seemed to really love what he was doing.” Chairman of the Tokyo Philhar monic Orchestra since 1999, he continued to conduct there a few times a year. In 1993, he conducted the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra at Lincoln Center’s Avery Fisher Hall in a charity event funded by Sony. Ohga often compared leading a company to conducting an orchestra. “Just as a conductor must work to bring out the best in the members of his orchestra, a company president must draw on the talents of the people in his organization,” Ohga said in a 1996 Sony publication. Sony started amid the destruction and poverty after World War II and built itself on the popularity of transistor radios, the Walkman, the Trinitron TV, the CD — shaping the history of modern electronics. Ohga had graduated

from Tokyo National University of Fine Arts and Music in 1953 and Berlin University of the Arts in 1957. He was set to pursue a career as a baritone opera singer when Sony cofounders Masaru Ibuka and Akio Morita, intrigued by his complaints about the sound quality of Sony tape recorders, recruited him to the company. He was a Sony executive by his 30s, a rarity in a Japanese company. He was appointed president of CBS Sony Records in 1970, chair man of what later became Sony Corp. of America in 1988, and chief executive of Sony in 1989. He left the day-to-day business in about 2000. The company says he was key in building the Sony brand, especially working on design, as well as quality, to make products that looked attractive to consumers. “Norio Ohga was a brilliant and innovative businessman whose visionary leadership had a profound impact on the way people experience entertainment throughout the world,” Sony Pictures Entertainment Chairman and CEO Michael L ynton and CoChairman Amy Pascal said in a statement. Ohga had tried to lead a double life of artist and Sony man. One day, he dozed of f from exhaustion in the stage wings while waiting to go on in the “The Marriage of Figaro,” rushed in from the wrong direction and watched his embarrassed co-stars stifling gig-

Sony says Ohga, credited with developing the compact disc, has died Saturday. He was 81. Sony Corp. Chairman Howard Stringer said Ohga helped redefine the Japanese manufacturer not only as an electronic hardware company but helped it also expand into software or entertainment. gles. He gave up his opera career but still promoted classical music in Japan by supporting young musicians and concerts. Sony has encountered difficulty in recent years, falling behind in flat-panel TVs to rivals like Samsung Electronics Co. of South Korea, as well as in digital music players to Apple Inc. It remains unique in having

a Hollywood studio, a music recording business, and the blockbuster PlayStation video-game unit that Ohga helped create, though critics note it has never fully realized the benefits of owning both electronics and entertainment divisions. Ohga is survived by his wife, Midori. Sony said a private wake will be held later.

Question and answer: Smartphone location tracking SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — The revelation this past week that Apple Inc.’s popular iPhone and iPad devices keep files of users’ location data raises legal and ethical questions.

Iconic St. Louis images part of exhibit

ST. LOUIS (AP) — The artist Max Lazarus loved the iconic images of St. Louis after he fled Nazi Germany in 1938. Now, those works are on display in the Gateway City. The Sheldon Art Galleries in St. Louis hosts “Max Lazarus: Trier/St. Louis/Denver — A Jewish Artist’s Fate. It features more than 50 paintings, lithographs and synagogue designs by Lazarus, and runs at the galleries through May 7. Among them, images from around St. Louis that fascinated Lazarus, including the Old Courthouse. Lazarus fled Germany at a time when Nazism was on the rise. His homeland became a dangerous place for a German-Jewish artist. The curator of the exhibit, Barbel Schulte, told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that Lazarus was a well-regarded artist in western Germany during the 1920s and 1930s. “But after the Nazis came to power, they systematically excluded and segregated all disliked artists — — and especially the Jewish artists — from the public art scene,” said Schulte, who is vice director and curator of the Stadtmuseum Simeonstift in Trier. “He started from the scratch in the USA, in a foreign culture with a foreign language. But he had some success in St. Louis,” becoming a member of the St. Louis Artists’ Guild. He might have stayed in St. Louis but came down with tuberculosis in 1942 and moved to Denver because it had a better climate for people with lung diseases. He died in Denver in 1961. The exhibit originated in Trier and will move on to Denver after concluding in St. Louis. The show has brought renewed attention to an artist who was in danger of being lost to history. “A fight raged between the traditionalists and the so-called modernists, and Max Lazarus found himself right between the fronts of both parties,” Schulte said. “He was too modern for the conservatives, and too traditional (that is, realistic) for the modernists. But he did not deserve such a fate.” “Our mission is to present a diverse range of high-quality exhibits,” said Olivia Lahs-Gonzales, director of the Sheldon Art Galleries. “And the story that’s being told — one of the Holocaust, and survival — is an important one to tell,” she said.

said the same about location data that is stor ed on smartphones that run its Android software. Both companies have maintained that the practice is clearly outlined in their privacy policies. Here’s a look at what the issue means for you, and what you can do to protect your location data, as well as the tradeoffs in convenience that that entails. Q: What is Apple collecting? A: Technically, Apple itself is collecting very little. According to a letter that the company sent Congress last year, Apple only collects information on the location of nearby cell towers and Wi-Fi networks. It says that data is anonymized so that it isn’t tied to a particular user’s phone. However, security researchers have discovered that iPhones and iPads do store individuals’ geographic coordinates — and have been for at least a year. Q: What’s happens to that information? A: The information appears to stay on the devices themselves, but is also transferred to any computers that the devices are synced to. That concerns security experts because the information is transferred in an unencrypted form, which makes it a target for hackers. Those who specialize in breaking in to Apple’s products say it would be very difficult to steal the file remotely because of security changes that Apple has recently made to its software. However, anyone with physi-

cal access to the phone — including devices lost or stolen — could easily see the data. Q: What can I do to prevent this information from being collected? A: Fortunately, it’s easy to turn off the tracking capability through the settings menus. The same goes for phones built on Google Inc.’s Android operating software. Unfortunately, doing so cripples a lot of applications that make smartphones “smart” in the first place, such as maps and the Foursquare social media service. Turning off tracking means those applications won’t have access to your GPS locations either, making them useless. Q: What are lawmakers doing about such tracking? A: For now, few rules apply. The Federal Communications Commission prohibits telephone companies from sharing customer data, including location information, with outside parties without customer consent. Yet those rules do not apply to Apple and other device makers or to the new ecosystem of mobile apps made by third-party developers. What’s more, because those rules were written for old-fashioned telephone service, it’s unclear whether they apply to mobile broadband service at all — even for wireless carriers like AT&T and Verizon. The FCC and the Federal Trade Commission say they are looking into the issue.

Brian Williams, De Niro square off at Tribeca

NEW YORK (AP) — At the Tribeca Festival, Brian Williams attempted a challenge: interviewing Robert De Niro. Williams sat down with the actor Saturday as part of Tribeca’s “Directors Series” talks. De Niro is a famously difficult interview, but Williams was eager for a chance to face-off with a personal idol. He was warned of De Niro’s sphinx-like reputation. Introducing the event, Jane Rosenthal, who co-founded Tribeca with De Niro and has long been his producing partner, said she was surprised at Williams’ request. “Great idea, but have you seen Bob’s interviews?” said Rosenthal, recalling her reply. The NBC News anchorman said that he wanted to interview De Niro “as a fan.” While De Niro often answered Williams’ questions with typical recalcitrance, the two managed a good conversation with only an occasional sigh from Williams. At one point, Williams’ attempts for a more conversational interaction broke down when De Niro stymied him. “Did I answer the question?” asked De Niro, when there hadn’t been one. But the two still had common ground. Asked if he watches his old movies when they air on TV, De Niro said he doesn’t. “I don’t do that, Brian. I watch the news and I watch the ‘Today’ show,” said De Niro, drawing a laugh from the crowd. “I’m very set in my ways.” De Niro said it was actually TV that helped inspire him to be an actor. “I used to look at television and say, ‘Well, if that person can do it, then I can certainly do it,” recalled the 67-year-old actor. And De Niro said TV is again frequently on his mind when he’s filming. “Whenever I have a big dramatic scene, I always think: ‘What are they going to do with this on ‘Saturday Night Live’?” said De Niro, who has hosted the sketch comedy show and spent much of his later years making comedies. The Tribeca Film Festival, which is celebrating its 10th incarnation, runs through May 1.
