About 50 parents and day care providers gathered Thursday night to protest further cuts to subsidized day care and to push for a resolution pending in the Legislature that would allocate per manent funding for early childhood education and day care. “We’re not looking for bleeding hearts, and we’re not looking for handouts,” Jeri Key, co-owner of Generations of Learning Center, in Roswell, told the crowd in the old Arts and Crafts Building at the Eastern New Mexico State Fairgrounds. “What we’re looking for is the help to take care of our children.” Key encouraged parents to email their local lawmakers in support of Senate Joint Resolution 10. SJR10, sponsored by Sen. Cynthia Nava, D-Las Cruces, would amend the state constitution to increase the distribution of money from the Land Grant Permanent Fund to early childhood education programs.
ALBUQUERQUE (AP) — The blackened swath of prairie stretches some 40 miles from the edge of Chaves County to the Texas state line. Firefighters and weather forecasters are pointing to the fresh scar from last week’s nearly 65,000-acre grass fire as a sign of what’s to come in parts of the Southwest. They say much of the region already has the ingredients needed for the makings of a grueling fire season — dry and
US begins relief operation for refugees in Tunisia An aerial view of the burned prairie from last week's nearly 65,000-acre grass fire near Lovington.
WASHINGTON (AP) — The U.S. on Friday launched a multipronged effort to assist throngs of foreign workers who fled the fighting in Libya, sending two Air Force cargo planes to deliver blankets and other supplies in neighboring Tunisia. Plans were made to fly an unspecified number of refugees from camps along the Libya-Tunisia border on Saturday. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said that in addition to the military cargo flights to Djerba, Tunisia, the U.S. Agency for International Development chartered two civilian aircraft to help repatriate foreign workers who have fled Libya amid an armed insurrection against the government of Moammar Gadhafi.
Even with the emphasis on humanitarian rather that overt military action, the risk of encountering hostility and violence along the border could not be discounted. It was not clear Friday how U.S. and other inter national efforts to fly foreign workers away from the border area would be carried out. “We know that there is a lot of confusion on the ground that is often difficult for us to sort through to get to what the actual facts are,” Clinton said. ”But the United States remains deeply concerned about the welfare of the Libyan people. Both the Libyans and those who are fleeing Libya are the subject of our outreach.” See RELIEF, Page A2

Boehner launches effort to defend gay marriage ban
WASHINGTON (AP) — House Speaker John Boehner said Friday he is launching a legal defense by the House of the federal law against gay marriage, which President Barack Obama’s administration has concluded is unconstitutional. “The constitutionality of this law should be determined by the courts — not by the president unilaterally,” the Ohio Republican said in a statement. “This action by the House will ensure the matter is addressed in a manner consistent with our Constitution.” The Obama administra-
tion last month announced it would no longer defend the constitutionality of the federal law that bans recognition of gay marriage. Attorney General Eric Holder said the section of the 1996 law defining marriage as a union between a man and a woman is unconstitutional. Nonetheless, he said the Justice Department would continue to enforce the Defense of Marriage Act, and it remains in effect. Boehner said he would convene a group of bipartisan congressional leaders that has the authority to instruct the House counsel to represent the chamber
in court. The panel would include Boehner, Majority Leader Eric Cantor, R-Va.; Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif.; Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi DCalif., and Minority Whip Steny Hoyer, D-Md. Boehner said he was convening the panel “for the purpose of initiating action by the House to defend this law.” But there was no immediate indication of specifically what action it would direct or when the group would meet. Democrats on the panel were unlikely to support any defense of the law. Pelosi has lauded Obama’s

Also Friday, the Treasury Department said Secretary T imothy Geithner would visit Germany on Tuesday for talks with German officials about global efforts to pressure the Gadhafi government through economic penalties.

cultural feel, according to Cecil. In his didactic panel for the exhibit, Cecil writes about the flower in detail. “Many cultures utilize flowers and their qualities to celebrate important life occasions including romance, birth, worship, success, commemoration, and death,” Cecil explains. “It is with this multifaceted theme of “flower” and the cultural significance of traditions associated with the veneration of flowers that the idea for the exhibition started to bloom.” “Our shared history with the flower has engaged humanity from the beginning,” reads Cecil’s notes. “The bloom
President Barack Obama declared on Thursday that Gadhafi must leave, and he said his administration was considering a full range of options, including the imposition of a “no-fly” zone over Libya. But Obama’s emphasis was on humanitarian relief, and that was where the U.S. military began its efforts Friday. Two U.S. amphibious warships, the USS Kearsarge and the USS Ponce, were available in the Mediterranean but had not

decision to stop defending it as a “victory for civil rights, fairness and equality.” On Friday, she criticized the move as a costly burden on House staff. “This is nothing more than a distraction from our most pressing challenges” such as creating jobs and reducing the federal deficit, she said. The White House declined to comment on Boehner’s announcement. The law’s supporters lauded the new House speaker, saying constitutionality should be decided by the courts and not by the president. “With the House intervening, we will finally get lawyers in that courtroom who are trying to win this” issue, said Brian Brown, president of the National Organization for Marriage. The law’s opponents said Boehner’s action amounted to pandering to the GOP’s conservative base at the expense of gays and lesbians.
House Republicans have “now shown they’re more interested in scoring cheap political points on the backs of same-sex couples than tackling real problems,” said Human Rights Campaign President Joe Solmonese. Passed by the Republican-led Congress and signed into law by President Bill Clinton in 1996, the law defines marriage as a union between a man and a woman, prevents the federal government from recognizing gay marriages and allows states to deny recognition of same-sex unions per for med elsewhere. It’s been used by federal officials to justify excluding gay couples from a range of benefits available to heterosexual couples. They include health, Social Security, pension and tax benefits, even to gay couples who were legally married in the handful of states that recognize same-sex unions. The Gover nment
Immanuel hosts youth black history program today
One of the oldest churches in Roswell, Immanuel Church of God In Christ, 1002 N. Union Ave., will host its 18th annual Black History Month youth program today at 3 p.m. The program is coordinated by Angela Moore. The theme of this year’s program is Unity in the Community, Focus on Love. The program includes a Black History trivia contest, dancing, praise dancers, readings and singing, among others things. Festivities are free and open to the public. For more information, call 317-4175 or 624-0105 or email email@example.com. Immanuel is pastored by the Rev. Louis Accardi.

Two C-130 cargo planes flew from Ramstein Air Base in Ger many and picked up relief supplies at a USAID warehouse in Italy before heading to Tunisia. Lapan said the supplies included 4,000 blankets, 9,600 10-liter water containers and 40 rolls of plastic sheeting that can be

used for shelter. The planes were expected to fly later to Souda Bay and then return to Tunisia on Saturday to pick up an unspecified number of stranded Egyptians and fly them home, he said. Pressure for the U.S. to prepare for a more robust response to the Libya crisis continued to mount on Capitol Hill. Sens. John McCain, R-Ariz., and Joe Lieberman, I-Conn., issued a joint statement Friday urging the White House not to forget the lessons of
Accountability Office estimates that there are more than 1,000 provisions of federal law “in which benefits, rights and privileges are contingent on marital status or in which marital status is a factor.” Gay marriage is legal in some states: Connecticut, Iowa, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Vermont and the District of Columbia. Still other states recognize civil unions, but not marriage, between partners of the same sex. California’s Proposition 8 has been ruled unconstitutional by a federal court. Meanwhile, 30 states have constitutional amendments banning gay marriage. Last year, U.S. District Judge Joseph Tauro ruled the law unconstitutional in the face of challenges by same-sex couples and the state of Massachusetts. Two new federal lawsuits in Connecticut and New York raise many of the same issues. The Supreme Court has not ruled on the gay marriage ban and has turned down appeals asking it to weigh in.

Mayor Del Jurney congratulated the honorees and read a proclamation declaring March 2011
Roswell Women’s History Month “in recognition of the many women in our community for the examples they have set that paved the way for our future leaders.” Guest speaker City Councilor Judy Stubbs reminded the 100-plus crowd that although women have made strides in the past century, true parity still awaits. “The things we stand for today are with us today because of the work of generations of women before us who fought for
ideals, such as the right to vote, equal pay and ending violence against women,” Stubbs said. “So I guess I have to say, one out of three isn’t too bad. We do get to vote.” The Roswell Women’s History Month Committee was formed in 1998 and began honoring women in 1999 as part of national Women’s History Month. Wilson says the four women were nominated by members of the public. During Wilson’s address, she read aloud the proclamation of
Women’s History Month that President Barack Obama issued earlier this month. She read, “As we move forward, we must correct persisting inequalities. Women comprise over 50 percent of our population but hold fewer than 17 percent of our congressional seats. More than half our college students are female, yet when they graduate, their male classmates still receive higher pay on average for the same work. Women also hold disproportionately
fewer science and engineering jobs. ... This month, let us carry forth the legacy of our mothers and grandmothers. As we honor the women who have shaped our nation, we must remember that we are tasked with writing the next chapter of women’s history. Only if we teach our daughters that no obstacle is too great for them, that no ceiling can block their ascent, will we inspire them to reach for their highest aspirations and achieve true equality.”
lished in 1937 and is the oldest day care center in Roswell, will have to cut programs, like the free breakfast and lunch, to keep her business afloat if the state cuts funding further. “We’re going to have to lose some programs this coming year because we can’t afford to keep them, and it’s killing us,” she said. “So we have to make a decision as business people: Do we let teachers go, do we let programs go or do we close classrooms?” The New Mexico Children, Youth and Families Department’s Child Care Assistance Program subsidizes the cost of child care for low-income families at or below 200 percent of the federal poverty level
that are working and/or in school, according to its website. Reimbursements were cut by 4 percent in November due to state budget shortfalls, and the assistance program created a waiting list for all eligible parents whose income is between 100 percent and 200 percent of the FPL. Earlier this year, child care providers were hit hard by the four percent cut. T risha Lair, co-owner and director of Tadpoles, in Roswell, says that 60 percent of Tadpole’s income comes from that CYFD funding, since half of the 122 children enrolled qualify for state subsidies to pay for part or all of their care. When the CYFD funding was cut by
4 percent, Lair says Tadpoles’ monthly income was cut by 4 percent. “Because the state has not raised our subsidy pay at all — it hasn’t increased in 11 years — and now they’ve cut it by 4 percent,” Lair said. “So in order to survive, we’ve had to make up the difference in our private-pay.” “Making up the difference in our private-pay” means raising the price for parents who pay out-ofpocket instead of receiving government subsidies or reimbursements. Eligibility for subsidized child care is determined by gross monthly income and family size. Leslie Robertson, co-owner of Tadpoles, say she is worried parents will no longer be eligible if the state
decides to stop offering assistance to Priority 4, the highest end of the spectrum of low-income families, usually single working parents. “If they cut those Priority 4s, Tadpoles alone loses an entire classroom full of children; 22 of our kids are Priority 4,” Robertson said. Ashley Nowak, a former single working mother, says her experience with daycare in Roswell has been alarming. She placed her 4-year-old daughter in daycare at Tadpoles three years ago. When she got a better paying job, she was no longer eligible for government subsidies. She could also not afford to pay out-of-pocket for the care. “Six hundred dollars a
month for one child? That’s more than my check coming in every two weeks,” she said. She was forced to pull her daughter out of Tadpoles and place her into a less expensive daycare facility. Three weeks later, her daughter’s fingers were cut off in a door at day care, an accident she blames on inattentiveness of the staff. Now Nowak works at a company that provides inhome care for seniors. She says she and her boyfriend will still need help to pay for day care. “I have a baby on the way again,” she said. “I can’t do it. Unless they raise the pay rate on all jobs, no parent can do it.”

Good news on economic development front A4 Sunday, March 6, 2011
SANTA FE — We finally have some good news on two major economic development initiatives that appeared in serious danger with the new administration of Gov. Susana Martinez. The Senate unanimously passed legislation to tighten rules concerning film tax rebates and to collect information necessary to assess whether the program is working to New Mexico’s benefit. The measure does not address the size of the rebate or put a cap on the amount the state pays out. To do so without knowing the data would be a disservice to both the state and the film industry, senators determined. The future of Senate Bill 44 is a complete unknown since both the House and governor have completely different ideas. But it does deliver the message that one body of the Legislature has made a firm decision. The Senate’s decision seems reasonable and it marks one of the few times in which that body has
INSIDE THE CAPITOL
been in unanimous agreement on any major issue. The other good news concerns the spaceport. And it is two-fold. First, Gov. Martinez has appointed a spaceport director with seemingly outstanding qualifications, and second, some Virgin Galactic flights will carry scientists performing experiments. Christine Anderson, the new spaceport director, has 30 years experience in space technology with the Air Force, mostly at Kirtland Air Force Base. She was the founding director of the Air Force Space Vehicles Directorate. She headed the Space Technology Directorate. And she
Roswell Daily Record
was director of the Military Satellite Communications program. Anderson says she looks forward to ensuring the spaceport is developed into an economic engine that can drive development and job creation in New Mexico. Her appointment may be an indication that Gov. Martinez is more excited about the spaceport than she has appeared to be. This column has reported misgivings about whether our new governor wants to junk any programs with former Gov. Bill Richardson’s footprint on them. Let’s hope Anderson’s appointment is an indication that Martinez is deciding her best course of action is to lead both programs in bold new directions with an even bigger footprint than Richardson’s. The other piece of good news is that the Southwest Research Institute has inked a deal with Virgin Galactic for numerous research flights. In some cases, all six passen-
gers will be researchers working together in an “out-of-seat” microgravity environment. Evidently Virgin Galactic isn’t as tacky as airlines are about passengers leaving their seats. According to the Commercial Spaceflight Federation, the scientific community is beginning to realize it can put people and payloads into space at a much lower cost and achieve better results than with old-style automated experiments. So as we said in another column recently, the suborbital space market is not just for wellheeled tourists to take joy rides. It soon will be a means for routine field work in scientific research. Still another good sign is President Barack Obama’s decision several months ago that NASA will concentrate on deep space exploration while the near-earth market will be left to commercial interests. With the appointment of Anderson as director of the spaceport,
the possibilities increase for New Mexico to get a lion’s share of that business through the contacts she has made during the past 30 years. From all indications, Virgin Galactic, the Spaceport’s anchor tenant, appears to be sticking firmly with its agreement to fly out of New Mexico despite some discouraging words from our governor. The only cloud on that horizon is some information just received that no copy of the 20-year lease agreement signed by Richard Branson has ever been produced for any government agency to review. Fortunately Virgin Galactic officials still are making very supportive statements about New Mexico’s Spaceport America and still appear to be the loyal partner they have been since the beginning.

Recording government meetings
We hold state Sen. Tim Jennings in the highest regard, but we will continue to voice our opposition to his efforts to limit the public’s access to legislative proceedings. It is imperative in a free society that the citizenry be able to observe the actions of its elected representatives as they create laws and establish policy. During this legislative session, Jennings, the Senate president pro tem, introduced a resolution which would allow committee heads or the ranking minority party member to prohibit photography, video or audio recordings during committee meetings. The resolution passed in a 35-3 vote. Jennings contends the law will prevent citizen testimony and lawmakers’ words from being a part of a “political commercial.” “We had problems with people coming into committees and video taping, and then going out and putting that on the web as a political function,” Jennings said. While we’d agree this is an unsavory practice, it does not legitimize giving lawmakers the authority to determine what is or isn’t an acceptable reason for wanting to film an open meeting. Anyone who isn’t acting in a disruptive manner should be allowed to record these meetings. The New Mexico Foundation for Open Government was quick to express its concern regarding this new rule. A letter from Sarah Welsh, executive director of NMFOG, stated the organization is “gravely concerned that the new and unconstitutional” resolution will conflict with the public’s First Amendment right to record the open meetings. “Because public legislative committee hearings are designated public forums, a very high standard must be met before regulations on attendance or taping may be imposed,” Welsh added. “Reasonable time, place and manner regulations are permissible, but those regulations must be viewpoint-neutral and narrowly tailored to serve an important objective that is unrelated to the suppression of particular viewpoints.” We concur. We are not insensitive to the fact that lawmakers, like any other people, can become self conscious when they know their every word and gesture are being recorded. It can be even more unnerving if the person on the other end of the lens or microphone is a political version of the paparazzi who hound celebrities hoping for an embarrassing image or remark. The mind-set of lawmakers who want to focus on the important job of governing our state so they can make New Mexico a better place to live is an admirable one. Distractions have the effect of hampering their efforts to tackle the vast amount of work which must be accomplished on a brutal deadline. It is, however, vital to our democracy that these distractions be endured when they involve the public’s ability to witness the operation of the government. New Mexico is geographically a very large state. For people who live hundreds of miles away from Santa Fe, the only way to know what’s going on in the Legislature is to rely on the news media and other information distribution organizations. The tools required to accomplish this task include cameras and other recording devices. This should be especially apparent to Jennings, who represents a district far removed from the capital. It’s some 200 miles from Roswell to Santa Fe. That’s a long trip for constituents to make if they want to see what their elected representatives are doing on a given day. There will always be opportunities for people to collect unflattering images, video and audio recordings of lawmakers which could be used for political purposes. One of the burdens of living in the public eye is that elected officials have to always be on their guard against those seeking to embarrass them. We can forgive the caution some politicians display when they are out in public. However, when it comes to shutting down the creation of a permanent record of the events which transpire in open meetings, we have to express our strong objection. The fear of what some dubious organizations might do with the images and recordings they gather is not a legitimate reason to keep the public in the dark.
Praise for an unconventional friendship One of the pleasures of an earthly transition is that you can write nice things about a person while they are still around to read them. And so, I rise to praise my friend and favorite newspaper writer, Frank Rich Jr. as he leaves The New York Times for New York magazine. What, you say? You are a conservative and he is among the most politically liberal people in journalism. Or, as someone asked me one night when they heard I was going to dinner with former Sen. George McGovern, “How can you eat with a man like that?” “Easy,” I replied. “He’s

which is available overthe-counter at Walgreens. It is applied directly to the toenail and surrounding skin daily using the applicator brush provided. Another product that has been successful is decolorized iodine, also known as white iodine. This product may also improve weak, brittle nails.
It is not a cliche to say, “Some of my best friends are liberal Democrats.” I write a biweekly USA Today column with Bob Beckel whose liberal credentials are beyond reproach. Why has our political discourse caused us to hate one another if we are of different parties or persuasions? Why must a member of another party or persuasion always be seen as being on “the other side”? The Taliban are on the other side. My fellow American is my fellow American, regardless of politics. There are many reasons for such divisions, none of them valid.
As for soaking agents, I have received several letters regarding white vinegar. Some people soak a cotton ball and then apply it to the affected nail several times a day, while others simply dilute the vinegar with warm water and soak the whole foot. This may also help with athlete’s foot. Others have chosen to use diluted bleach in a similar manner. Many years ago, I recommended a foot soak using Pau d’Arco tea. The feet have to be soaked several times a day. I have since stopped recommending it because See GOTT, Page A5

God is watching you — so are many others Roswell Daily Record
As we traveled home last weekend from Waco along a wandering two-lane road, we passed through many small communities along the Texas countryside. Each community had its churches and its gas station and its community store. I reminded myself that each community was the center of the universe to every person who lived there. At the far outskirts of one community was a medium sized house with a white pipe fence along the front of the property. There was a sign next to the driveway opening that read in large capital letters, “GOD IS WATCHING YOU.” My first thought was that this sign was a message from a Christian family to those who drove by to examine the lives they are living. But the more I thought about the sign, the more I thought that it may have been hung as a deterrent to anyone who might think of breaking into the home. I guess I won’t know the heart of the homeowners who had the sign made and placed it at the entrance to their property. Regardless of their intent, the message conveyed is an accurate message. In this day and age, the question often isn’t “Is God watching?” the question is “Who else is watching besides God?” There has never been less privacy in the world than that which exists today. Privacy seems to be turning

Today is Sunday, March 6, the 65th day of 2011. There are 300 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight On March 6, 1836, the Alamo in San Antonio, Texas, fell to Mexican forces after a 13-day siege. On this date In 1834, the city of York in Upper Canada was incorporated as Toronto.
into a thing of the past. Whether it is going through security at an airport or needing a Social Security number to open a bank account, to live in this day we must be willing to give up our rights to privacy. But the ability to keep your life private has taken a near knockout blow in the last several years. For virtually the entire existence of mankind, we did not have the ability to take a photograph and show others the moment in time captured by the camera. History was passed from generation to generation verbally or in writing as seen through the eyes of the author. An action could occur and then be denied or written about inconsistent with the truth. Photos came along and photos didn’t lie. After the photograph came videos. Suddenly, a taped account could be made of an event or a person’s actions. Video tapes were able to reveal actions, no matter how bizarre or unbelievable. Then along comes the worldwide web known as the Internet
and privacy rights took another major blow. Through social media outlets such as Facebook or Twitter, a person can post a thought and it instantly can be transmitted to thousands of others to read and respond. Likewise a picture or video can be posted online on You Tube and countless others can view the individual or individuals involved. A person’s privacy can shrink greatly with a social media presence. You might ask, “But aren’t those people who choose to engage in social media electing to shrink their privacy?” The short answer is “yes,” but those who don’t choose to be involved in social media are also impacted. On Facebook, many photos and videos are posted by individuals who want what happens in their lives (and now their location) to be known by others. But there are also photos and videos posted by others involving individuals who may not want their private acts spread publically. For example, a person could be at a birthday party or social event with a crowd of people. A stranger could be running a video camera that captures something you may not want captured. The stranger can post it on YouTube with a clever heading and before you get home, it may have already been viewed by thousands of others on computer screens across the world. The person being laughed at may not even have a computer
at home, yet something that occurred involving the person is available to the four corners of the Earth. We wake up in a different world today. No other generation in the history of mankind has woken up in this world before. Audio and digital media have been placed into the hands of a majority of our country’s population. Social media has caught fire and we now have a generation whose most important possession would appear to be their computer or cell phone. The only world any of us can live in is this world in existence today. As our privacy erodes, we can’t return to the simpler days of yesteryear. Truth be known, anything you are doing may be being watched. What used to be God watching, now includes a large segment of the rest of the world. Applicants for jobs have not been considered because of their Facebook postings. Employees have been fired because of candid comments online. Highly regarded individuals have fallen from grace because of an audio or digital recording that was intended to be private, but was broadcast publically to the world. I heard on the national news today about a man who lost his endorsement because of an unpopular opinion he said in a private group, but that was recorded and posted online. After the company he was endorsing

Take 1 or 2 tablespoons each morning to prevent and/or remedy constipation. Be sure to store any extra in the refrigerator. It is best to prepare it in small batches because it lasts only up to three or four days once mixed. The arthritis drink is 8 ounces of purple grape juice mixed with 1 tablespoon of liquid pectin. This can be used up to three times a day until symptoms are under control, and then most users continue with a maintenance dose of one glass per day. Some readers have used
anything about a person. What are we missing as Americans by dismissing people we may disagree with politically as unworthy of our friendship, or even citizenship in a country that has always been diverse in its opinions? In 1776, a considerable number of our ancestors wanted to remain British and denounced those who didn’t as traitors. Frank Rich’s 14 years as chief drama critic for The New York Times and his 17 years as an op-ed opinion columnist may be unsurpassed for writing of this kind. When you get to know someone, including their failures, insecurities, family dynamics and fears, you come to appreciate them on a level far above the political chatter. Politics come and go; friends are forever. As Cole Porter wrote, “It’s friendship, friendship, just a perfect blendship. When other friendships have been forgot, ours will still be hot.” I am proud to call Frank Rich my friend and to wish him well in his new digs at New York magazine. Their gain is the Times’ loss.

heard his controversial opinion, he was informed they would no longer use him as an endorsement. Ironically, with the shrinking of a person’s privacy, comes a much greater degree of accountability. What used to happen in private generally stayed private. Now, what happens in a private setting can and does manifest itself publically. Reputations that a person has worked a lifetime for can be shattered in minutes. My challenge to you today is to recognize the world we live in today is not the world the generations before us lived through. Guard your thoughts closely. Be careful what you post publically. Better yet, live a life of accountability as if a camera is pointed at you 24/7. Don’t do anything or speak any words that you would not be proud to read about in the next morning’s newspaper.

Dear Editor: Education refor m is never easy. But education reform is necessary, and now more than ever. But it takes parents, teachers, administrators and state policymakers coming together to put our kids first, regardless of how difficult it may be to challenge the status quo. For example, more than 16 percent of our thirdgrade students are scoring at the lowest level on the state’s annual reading test. The lowest level! That’s a disturbing statistic, and one which warrants an immediate response from all New Mexicans. Legislation which passed the State House of Representatives last week offers a solution by providing these lowest performers a chance to get the remediation and intervention they need before they are thrown into a higher grade without the skills necessary to succeed there. Of course, the legislation also provides reasonable exceptions for students with learning disabilities, for English language learners, and for students who demonstrate mastery of our rigorous standards through alternative measures. Other proposals designed to put our kids first include legislation which will stop the rating of our community schools as merely pass or fail but will report their success using a meaningful measure that includes student growth from year to year. This proposal truly honors the dedicated work of our teachers in the classroom, and I look forward to our schools earning the credit they so richly deserve for the excellent work they do with our students on a daily basis. Parents are critical to the success of our schools, and I applaud the efforts of some parents to become more involved. I certainly support parents’ rights to make any decision they feel is appropriate regarding their kids’ education, but I’m not sure that boycotting tests is the best approach. Instead, I invite parents to stand with the Legislature and the governor in challenging the status quo in favor of more effective schools for our children and communities. State Rep. Nora Espinoza Roswell
Dear Editor: As a veteran who has had some involvement with the problem of veterans having to drive hundreds of miles (400-plus round-trip) to get health care, I wish Rep. Steve Pearce good luck with his HR 575 Bill. About 30 years ago we had VA fee-service in Roswell. Those of us who did went through all the hoops at VAMC Albuquerque to get it. The problem was not all doctors wanted to treat veterans under the VA feebasis terms then prevailing. The VA was a notoriously slow payer. That rightfully angered the doctors who would sometimes pressure the veterans for payment. Then in its infinite wisdom the VA stopped fee-service for Roswell. I was a volunteer DAV driver using my own vehicle to transport veterans to/from VAMC Albuquerque. Prior to that the local DAV chapter bought a van for this purpose supported partly by Bingo money. The problem was in finding volunteer drivers to make that Albuquerque trip five days a week with 12-14 hour days not being unusual. Just as now with the Vietnam Veterans of America Vans, VA would not pay mileage to those using that service. Not all veterans are entitled to mileage. Low income and veterans with a service-connected disability rating are entitled to it if they use their own vehicles to make the trip. For years mileage was paid at 11 cents per mile after deducting a certain radius mileage for Albuquerque. Roswell veterans got approximately $37 for a round-trip. In recent years that has been changed and those eligible

now get paid more. Many attempts have been made over the years to have VA contract with local hospitals to provide veteran care. This gets into governmentese gobblygook VA procurement rules and regulations VA wanted a proposal from local hospitals first. Getting the VAMC Albuquerque director together with our hospital director for this purpose was a challenge. Veterans go to Albuquerque to receive radiation treatments for cancer. VA contracts with UNM for this and the veteran has to be there for seven weeks with weekends free to drive back and forth to Roswell if they so chose. I once discussed this with a radiologistoncologist here and he said there was no interest in providing radiation treatments to Roswell veteran cancer patients here under contract with Va because it didn’t pay enough. The bottom line was and has been for years a money issue. We did succeed in having a VA clinic in Roswell briefly, combined with Casa De Salud. That lasted for about a year. We then had a VA representative meet with a local doctor who represented area physicians regarding health care in Roswell for veterans. We had a wellattended meeting in City Hall where it was discussed. The local doctors rejected the VA proposal because VA wanted veterans referred to VAMC Albuquerque for the specialty clinics instead of having that done here. The saga continues and veterans, many of them very ill and elderly, are forced to make the 200-mile drive to VAMC Albuquerque in all kinds of weather conditions. There is a clinic in Artesia for basic care. Ordinarily you must first go there and get a referral to go to VAMC Albuquerque. If you’re in pain and want to be seen at the Pain Clinic in Albuquerque there is usually a several month wait for an appointment. Once there and the Pain Clinic doctor agrees you’re in pain and need pain medication you cannot go to the pharmacy there to get it. Instead, in the case of Roswell veterans, you must drive back to Roswell, make an appointment at the VA Clinic in Artesia, have your primary care doctor there prescribe the pain medication via VA computer to the pharmacy in Albuquerque and wait for it to arrive. It’s absolutely ludicrous but SOP for VA. What Rep. Pearce is trying to do has been tried for many years. Mant local veterans fought all their lives to change this system and get VA health care in Roswell. I’ve always thought it could be done by contracting with the ENMMC Residency Program since VA already uses residents and interns from UNM at VAMC in Albuquerque. Now we’ll try again for fee-service payments to local physicians and we’ll see how many, if any, will agree to that. In the meantime veterans must continue to make those 400-mile round-trips to Albuquerque in whatever forms of transportation they can find. The VVA is doing an excellent job providing that service for free with not one dime of compensation from VA. But for some even a free ride in a van for that long distance has become unbearable.

Dear Editor: It worries me when people dismiss climate change without really thinking about it. It also worries me when we turn our backs on the clean energy resources that could rebuild the New Mexico economy, providing new business opportunities and thousands of jobs. Oil and gas are important to our economy, and that’s not going to change. But why not develop our solar, wind and geother mal resources, which are abundant all over the state? Our legislators need to invest in the new energy opportunities that will provide the next round of prosperity, here in Roswell and all across the state. Gloria Anderson Roswell
Dear Editor: As I wake up every morning, one of my thoughts is what’s happened in the world as I slept. Many of us turn on the TV, Internet and read the newspaper first thing. I would think most of us are concerned with the problems of the world. Last year it was disasters, murders in Mexico and much more. This year another earthquake in New Zealand and more murders in Mexico. People are standing up to their government in Egypt and Libya, asking for a better life. Here in the U.S., Madison, Wisconsin’s citizens are protesting and other states are not far behind. Here in New Mexico the governor has her agenda and our representatives have theirs. What will be accomplished? I would hope that the government would realize they are servants of the people. I truly believe we haven’t seen the worst yet. Life is going to get more difficult all over the world. That’s one of the reasons for this letter. New Mexico has four permanent funds worth $13 billion making New Mexico the second wealthiest state in the Union. Chaves County has $60 million in reserve. The county and state could get by during difficult times. Will any of our elected officials remember that their main job is to help the people? Gas and food prices are increasing rapidly. I believe for the next 18 months all citizens are going to struggle. Our county commissioners have established many programs to help the people. I would hope that they would finance a food bank in case of emergency and difficult times. Let’s continue to care and help each other. Eloy Ortega Roswell

NA T I O N A L BRIEFS UNC-ASHEVILLE GETS 1ST BID TO THE BIG DANCE
CONWAY, S.C. (AP) — North Carolina-Asheville’s Matt Dickey buried a gamewinning 3-pointer that rocked Coastal Carolina’s season 11 days ago. On Saturday, he buried a 3 in the same basket to break the Chanticleers’ hearts. Dickey’s shot from behind the arc with 1:39 left put the Bulldogs up seven and sent UNC-Asheville to a 60-47 victory over topseeded Coastal Carolina in the Big South Conference title game. Chris Stephenson scored 14 points for the third-seeded Bulldogs (19-13), who became the first team to clinch a spot in the NCAA tournament. John Williams had 10 points and nine rebounds. Dickey’s 3 back on Feb. 22 off a steal with less than three seconds left became a national highlight in a 6158 win over Coastal which beat Carolina, Asheville by 21 earlier this season and once had the nation’s longest winning streak at 22 games. “That was an incredible feeling. The coaches kept telling us, you win the championship, it will be a million times better. They hit the nail on the head,” Dickey said with the snipped net hanging around his neck. Dickey’s lone 3-pointer in six attempts Saturday helped Asheville reach the NCAAs for the second time. Its only other appearance was in 2003. For the second year in a row, Coastal Carolina (285) was the tournament’s top seed and lost the title game to the No. 3 seed.

The champs are returning to The Pit. The two-time defending state champion Roswell Coyotes became the first 4A boys team to book its ticket to the state quarterfinals on Saturday, handily defeating No. 12 Aztec 7244 at the Coyote Den. “It feels good to be the first 4A team in the state tournament,” said Coyote coach Britt Cooper after the win. “Our ticket is punched, but we’re not satisfied to just get there. “We’d like to get that third one. That’s our goal and these kids, whether it’s Piedra Vista or Los Lunas, at 8 a.m. on Wednesday, we’re going to be ready to go.” The Coyotes (21-6) booked their ticket into that 8 a.m. game against No. 4 Piedra Vista, which beat No. 13 Los Lunas 66-
58 Saturday, with one of their finest offensive performances of the season on Saturday. They started to pull away in the middle stages of the opening quarter and never let Aztec truly threaten. With the game tied at 44, Deyton DeLaCerda went on a run for Roswell, scoring five straight buckets for his team over a 2-minute stretch that saw Roswell’s lead go to 14-6. Malcolm Wiggins made it 16-6 after a Tiger turnover and Jonathan Ervin capped what was a 13-2 run with a free throw with 2:07 left in the first after another Tiger turnover. Aztec never got closer than seven the rest of the way. After the game, Cooper said it was a mix of stewing from the loss to Goddard in the district title game and finally seeing a team that doesn’t know his team’s every move.

Two overtimes. Nineteen lead changes and 11 ties. Five potential game-winning baskets. You could say the Goddard vs. Grants basketball game was exciting. The eighth-seeded Rockets survived a scare from the ninth-seeded Pirates and were able to pull out a 64-63 double overtime win at the Launching Pad on Saturday. The two teams entered the final quarter knotted at 34 and Goddard regained the lead 45 seconds in with a jumper by Brandon Cooper. The lead was shortlived, however, as Grants’ Chris Lopez nailed two free throws to tie the game at 36. Lane Vander Hulst put the Rockets back on top with 6:09 left with an old-fashioned 3-point play. After a free throw by Cooper gave Goddard a 44-39 lead with 4:06 left, the Pirates would go on a 7-0 run over the next 1:29 to take a 46-44 lead. Cooper ended the Rocket drought and tied the game with a swooping left-handed layup, but Weston Zeller answered with a layup of his own to put Grants up 48-46. On Goddard’s next possession, Erik
Johnson corraled an errant Austin Rader shot and hit the put-back knotting the game at 48 with 1:42 left. With 40 seconds left, Eddie Gonzales hit a 10-foot jumper that gave the Pirates a two-point lead. On the Rockets’ final possession of the fourth, Vander Hulst found himself at the free-throw line with 27.9 seconds left. Before Vander Hulst’s trip to the line, Goddard had missed seven of its last nine free-throw attempts and many Rocket fans stood with their hands over their mouths as Vander Hulst stepped to the line. He calmly nailed both free throws tying the game at 50. Goddard’s Chase Salazar said that Vander Hulst was clutch when his team needed it most. “He was really clutch in the big moments and we needed that to come out with the win,” he said. In what would be a recurring theme the rest of the way, the Pirates had a chance to win it at the end, but Johnson and Vander Hulst forced a difficult shot by Zeller and Rader snared the rebound sending the game into overtime. In overtime, Vander Hulst hit a leaner to give Goddard a 52-50 lead, but Grants

“I think so,” he said about whether the loss to the Rockets woke his team up. “It’s just nice to see a team we haven’t played six times or three times like Artesia. It’s good to get ahold of somebody that doesn’t know our every move.” Roswell led 20-11 after the first and 39-28 at the break, but it wasn’t until the third quarter when they started to pull away. Three minutes into third, the Coyotes were up 47-33 thanks to a six-point burst behind a pair of buckets from Ervin and another from Wiggins. After three, the Coyotes led 55-40. That lead would balloon to 21 just 2 minutes into the fourth quarter and was at 20 with 3:45 remaining. Roswell then finished the game on an 8-0 run to cap the victory.

Local roundup: Roswell baseball team gets first victory RECORD STAFF REPORTS
ARTESIA — The Roswell baseball team snapped its four-game slide on Saturday, capturing its first victory with an 11-8 triumph over Austin (El Paso) in the seventhplace game of the Artesia Invitational. “It’s very nice to get that monkey off your back,” said Coyote coach Dane Kyser after the win. “You don’t want to go o-fer if you can possibly avoid it. “A win is a win, and I’ll take it, but we did identify a lot of things we have to work on still.” The Coyotes never led until the top of the eighth when they put up three runs. Michael Foster’s game-tying triple in the seventh tied things at 8-8 before Roswell’s three-spot in the eighth. Dominic Chavez pitched 7 1/3 innings to get the win before Kevin Kelly came on in the eighth to pick up a save. “We still had five errors today. In the first inning, we really could have sealed things up, but we had two errors that led to five runs,” Kyser said. “If we can clean those things up, I still feel really positive with what we have and what we have coming.”
Goddard 16-19, Portales 6-0 The shorthanded Goddard baseball team opened its season on Saturday by sweeping a doubleheader with Portales. The 16-6 win in the first game came in six innings and the 19-0 win in the second game came in five innings. Ryan Greene captured the win in the first game, while Andre Shewcraft picked up the victory with two innings of work in the second game.

scored the next five points to take a 55-52 lead. Vander Hulst cut the Rocket deficit to one with a layup, and after the Pirates’ Landon Chaves went 1 for 2 at the line, Vander Hulst tied the game yet again with two clutch freebies. Neither team could score and with 17 seconds left, Grants had the ball with a chance to advance to the quarterfinals. Zeller dished the ball to Gonzales with 5 seconds left and went up for a layup, but Johnson rejected the shot and sent the game into double overtime. Grants took the first lead of the second OT when Logan Lewis drilled a 3 from the right corner. Vander Hulst converted two free throws to cut the Pirate lead to 6160 before a hustle play set Goddard up to take the lead for good. With Grants up by one, Cooper knocked the ball out of Chavez’s hands and dove on the ground to grab the ball. Before his momentum caused him to travel, however, he passed the ball to Vander Hulst and, a few seconds later, Vander
pounded out nine extra-base hits and posted 11 runs in the third and fourth innings en route to a victory over Miyamura in the Piedra Vista Invitational, Saturday. “We came out kind of slow, but once we got past that first inning, thing started to come together and we started hitting the ball,” said Roswell coach Art Sandoval. “Jessica Wiggins pitched a heck of a game and, defensively, we played pretty soundly. “It was a good win for us and a good overall team effort.” Wiggins picked up the win for Roswell after replacing DaSean Varnado, who lasted only 2/3 of an inning. Wiggins went the rest of the way in the five-inning win, allowing two runs on four hits while striking out four. She also went 2 for 3 at the dish. Jessica Zamora went 2 for 3 with a double, triple, two runs scored and two RBIs and Marrissa Torres was 1 for 3 with two runs scored and two RBIs.
Los Lunas 13, Roswell 1 FARMINGTON — Roswell was held to just three hits and committed eight errors on its way to a loss to Los Lunas at the Piedra Vista Invitational, Saturday. CeeAudra Mein, Kendra Chavez and Wiggins accounted for the only hits for the Coyotes. Wiggins took the loss after giving up 13 runs (six earned) on 11 hits. “We played a very great-hitting Los Lunas team. They were very sound and very disciplined,” Sandoval said. “That’s the first time I’ve seen a defense make that many errors. I don’t really have much to say. We didn’t show very much heart and just didn’t play up to our potential.”

Hulst was at the line again. He hit both freebies to give Goddard a 62-61 lead. The Pirates missed their next shot and Johnson grabbed the rebound and passed to Salazar. Salazar then threw a pass the length of the court to Vander Hulst, who skied to catch the ball, landed, gathered himself and made the layup to give Goddard a 64-61 with 1:55 left. Lopez cut the Rocket lead to one with 1:29 left and after Goddard missed two shots, Grants had the ball again with a chance to win the game at the end. With about 10 seconds left Zeller drove the right baseline and shot a floater that missed, but Gonzales grabbed the rebound and pumpfaked and went up for a shot. Johnson and Vander Hulst altered the shot. Gonzales was able to grab his missed shot and went up again and the ball hit the rim and bounced away and nobody could grab it as the final seconds ticked away. As the buzzer sounded, the Goddard players jumped in the air and headed toward midcourt to celebrate and the Grants players fell to the ground. “I am like, ‘Are you kidding me?’” Jones said about the Pirates’ final
upset defending 5A state champion Mayfield in the championship match of the Coyote Classic, Saturday. “(We’re) playing great. This team that (we) played is an exceptional team. My guys stepped up and played good tennis,” said Institute coach Jim Kelly after the win. “Gonzalez stepped up when it was necessary.” Gonzalez dropped the first set in the first singles match with the team score tied at 44, but then won 6-3 in the second set and 63 in the third to help his team capture the tournament championship. Other singles winners for the Colts were Freddy Sanchez (second; 6-0, 6-1), Luis Zaragoza (fifth; 6-0, 6-3) and Maurico Moncada (sixth; 6-2, 6-2). Gonzalez and Sanchez teamed up to win 6-2, 6-4 at first doubles in the first match of the team affair.

NMMI splits pair ABILENE, Texas — The NMMI women’s tennis team split its two matches at the Abilene Christian Invitational on Saturday. The Broncos’ first match was against Abilene Christian University and they lost 9-0. NMMI rebounded in its second match though, downing Seminole State College 7-2. Singles winners from the second match were Karla Martinez (first; 6-4, 6-4), Litia Godinet (second; 6-0, 6-0), Adalyn Hazelman (fourth; 6-1, 6-2), Roswell native Samantha Dunn (fifth; 6-2, 6-3) and Jasmine Burt (sixth, 6-0, 6-1). Alicia Hawkins, who played No. 3 singles, lost her match, 0-6, 5-7. Doubles winners were Martinez and Godinet (first; 8-4), Hawkins and Hazelman (second; 9-7). NMMI’s third doubles team of Dunn and Burt lost 8-4. NMMI coach Zeljka Vidic said that her team improved each day of the three-day tournament. “We fought hard,”she said. “Abilene is a Division III four-year school. They are one of the top six teams in the nation, but we played well. It was a good match and good experience for us. We got better over the course of the weekend.” On Thursday, the Broncos beat HardinSimmons University 5-4 and, on Friday, NMMI lost to Temple College, 5-4.
three shots. “Everybody got their money’s worth tonight. It was a fun game to watch and coach. I am so happy that the kids get to experience The Pit.” In the two overtimes, Goddard scored 14 points. Twelve of those points were scored by Vander Hulst and Jones said that is what good players do. “That is what good players do, they put their teams on their shoulders and say, ‘I am going to carry you home,’” he said. “And that’s what he did.” Pirate coach Marty Zeller said that the two teams put on a show for the fans. “Both teams played their hearts out,” he said. “This was the game to watch, the game to keep your eye on. But hey, we got the chance we wanted and we got three looks there at the end. You get three looks at it and you can’t have a better opportunity than we did.” Next up for Goddard is Gallup, which survived a scare from No. 16 Kirtland Central. The No. 1 seed hung on to win 61-56 in overtime. The Rockets will get their chance to upset Gallup on Wednesday at 3 p.m. at The Pit in Albuquerque. Vander Hulst led Goddard with 27 points, while Johnson added nine. email@example.com

Hager man forced a tur nover on the Mustangs’ next possession and Bejarano made them pay with a jumper just inside the 3-point line. Ramah hit a field goal on its next possession, but Bejarano made sure he was behind the line on his next shot and he hit a 3 from the left corner to put Hager man up 23-5 with 1:48 left. The Bobcats forced seven turnovers on the Mustangs’ final seven possessions of the quarter and took a commanding 31-5 lead into the second. In the decisive first quarter, Hagerman forced 17 turnovers. On the possessions following the tur novers, the Bobcats scored 22 points, which was no surprise to Mestas. “We came out and our press worked really well against them,” he said. “That has been our identity all year; pressing all

year and getting after it. We need to continue to do that. I feel that in Class A, we have the best backcourt and if we can continue to put pressure on the other teams’ guards with our guards, we will be all right.” At the start of the second, Edward Montoya went on a hot streak, as he scored nine of the Bobcats’ first 12 points. By halftime, Hagerman
had grown its lead to 5614. Next up for Hagerman will be No. 8 Menaul, which beat No. 9 Logan 63-52 Saturday. The quarterfinal game will be Wednesday at 8:15 p.m. at Bernalillo High School. Until then, however, Mestas plans to continue to work. “We are going to have a shoot around (today),” he said. “We are going to
practice hard on Monday and then we’ll head up there Tuesday. We are just going to continue to plug along.” Garcia finished the game with 13 points, 15 rebounds, four blocks and a steal, while Isaac Bejarano added 21 points. Montoya had nine steals to go along with his 15 points for Hagerman. firstname.lastname@example.org
“They’re a big physical team, but I think we just eventually wore them out,” Cooper said. “I thought that was the key to it all. I thought at halftime that they were still within striking distance, but I thought they were getting tired.” DeLaCerda, who’s been held in check the last few games by Goddard and Artesia, broke out with a big per for mance to lead Roswell. “I think he’s been stewing for a week since the Goddard game,” Cooper said. “I think he got out there (Saturday) and got loose. They were keying on him, it was
man, but they were putting the pressure on him. But he just diced them up, certainly there in the first quarter. They had no answer for him all day long. “He’s a senior, he’s been there and he knows what it’s going to take. He knows he’s got to be one of the guys that leads us to it if we’re going to win that third one.” He finished with a gamehigh 27 points to lead Roswell. Ervin added 19 points with 16 of them coming in the middle two quarters. Wiggins added nine points and a game-best 12 boards. Ty Atencio led Aztec (169) with 23 points and 10 rebounds. email@example.com

Rangers give GM Daniels 4-year contract extension
ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Once the youngest general manager in big league history, Jon Daniels is under contract to become among the longest-tenured GMs in the history of the Texas Rangers. Daniels received a four-year contract extension through the 2015 season on Friday, a move that’s been expected since last fall, when he put together the first Rangers club to reach the World Series. Daniels joined the organization as a baseball operations assistant in 2002. He was only 28 when he was promoted to GM in October 2005. If he serves out this contract, he’ll have been in charge for 10 seasons, which would match the club record set by Tom Grieve. “My family and I love being in Texas and hope to build something really special over the next handful of years,” he said. “I think we’ve got a foundation and a process in place that we’re real comfortable with.” The Rangers are considered contenders this season and beyond because Daniels has stockpiled a nucleus of young players and guys still in their prime, such as reigning AL MVP Josh Hamilton and last year’s AL Rookie of the Year, Neftali Feliz. Texas’ minor league system was deep enough that Daniels packaged prospects in a midseason trade for ace pitcher Cliff Lee without gutting the organization. “The challenge is keeping the pipeline full and making sure there’s still next waves of players coming,” Daniels said. “What’s

changed is at the big league level, it’s not a tryout any more. Guys are expected to play at a certain level and help us win. ... There’s definitely a challenge. That’s the fun part. I think we’ve got the right people in place.” Club president Nolan Ryan announced Daniels’ extension while at a meeting of team owners in Arizona, where the club is holding spring training. “I think what he does best is he tries to assemble the best team he can possibly have around him, in the form of scouts and development people, and then he shows a lot of confidence in them and their ability,” Ryan said. “That’s a trait I like in people.” Daniels said the next priority is contract extensions for other valued staffers. “Nolan and I agree we want to keep that key leadership group intact and reward the people that have made us successful,” Daniels said.

Dwight Howard suspended 1 game for 16th technical
NEW YORK (AP) — Orlando Magic center Dwight Howard has been suspended for one game without pay for picking up his 16th technical foul of the season. He will serve the suspension Monday when the Magic are home against Portland. The penalty was announced Saturday by NBA executive Stu Jackson. Howard leads the NBA in technicals this season. His latest one came with 1:41 left in the first half Friday night against Chicago. With the Bulls up 43-29, Howard came down with an offensive rebound and was hit on the top of his head by Kyle Korver. Korver was whistled for a foul but took a swipe at the ball moments after the play. That prompted Howard to swing his elbows. The referee separated the players

Ex-NY Giants star Burress to leave prison in June
NEW YORK (AP) — Former New York Giants Super Bowl star Plaxico Burress is to get out of prison in June, after officials agreed Friday to shave about three months off his time behind bars in a gun case. A committee of prison-system staffers decided Burress was eligible for time off for good behavior, so he can be freed after serving about 21 months of his two-year sentence, system spokeswoman Linda Foglia said. With Burress’ release date now set for June 6, his agent and lawyer said he’s looking to return to football — and a number of teams are looking at him. “He’s counting the hours,” lawyer Peter M. Frankel said. “He’s extremely positive.” NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has ruled that Burress would be reinstated and eligible to sign with a team upon completing his sentence. While the league and players are locked in negotiations that have cast a shadow of uncertainty over the sport’s next season, Frankel and Burress agent Drew Rosenhaus said several teams had expressed interest in the receiver. “The future is very bright for Plaxico,” Rosenhaus said in an e-mail. Burress, 33, caught the winning touchdown for the Giants over the New England Patriots in the final minute of the 2008 Super Bowl. But his fortunes turned in November of that year, when he went to a Manhattan nightclub with a gun tucked in the waistband of his track pants; he later said he had been concerned for his safety because a teammate had been held up at gunpoint days before. Burress’ weapon slipped down his leg and fired, injuring him in the thigh. The bullet narrowly missed a security guard, prosecutors said. The gun wasn’t licensed in New York or New Jersey, where Burress lived, and his Florida concealed-weapons permit had expired. He also failed to report the incident to authorities. He pleaded guilty in August 2009 to attempted criminal possession of a weapon. Held in protective custody at an upstate prison because of his notoriety, Burress was turned down twice in bids for work release. The Manhattan District Attorney’s Office, which opposed work release for Burress, declined to comment on Friday’s decision. Burress had a work assignment in prison and completed an anger management program while incarcerated, his lawyer said. He’s been tagged with three minor disciplinary problems, including an episode in which corrections officers said Burress lied about having permission to use the phone to call his lawyer at a time when calls weren’t permitted, Foglia said. The November 2009 misstep cost him a week of phone privileges and 30 days of recreation privileges. Details on the other two incidents weren’t immediately available, but none was seen as serious enough to trim his time off for good behavior. His June release date is the earliest allowed under a state law that required him to serve at least six-sevenths of his sentence. “He’s done his best to abide by” prison rules, Frankel said. Giants general manager Jerry Reese has said the team will keep its options open with Burress. For now, “we are grateful that Plaxico and his wife, Tiffany, and their children now know when they will be reunited and able to get on with their lives together,” team spokesman Pat Hanlon said. “As we have stated many times in the past, we feel that day is long overdue.” Giants placekicker Lawrence Tynes said in an e-mail to The Associated Press that he thinks of Burress often because his sons attend the same school as Burress’ son. “He deserves to be back in the NFL and if that opportunity comes from the New York Giants then he will be welcomed back with open arms from us in the locker room,” said Tynes, who was on the Super Bowl championship team with Burress. “I’ve always personally wondered why the Giants never issued his No. 17 jersey to anyone over the past two seasons. If it happens to be with another franchise then I hope he has nothing but good health and success.”

Sunday, March 6, 2011 delivered, according to par rather than by total. He could be friendly and agreeable, but also surly and demanding — announcer Pat Summerall gave him the nickname “The Ayatollah” in the late 1970s, when the Shah of Iran was deposed and replaced by Khomeini. It was a name that Chirkinian acknowledged he enjoyed. “He was a friend, a mentor and a father figure to me,” broadcaster Jim Nantz said. “I was blessed to have his guiding hand extended to me at the age of 26. I am comforted knowing, as long as there is golf being televised anywhere in the world, Frank Chirkinian lives.” Chirkinian left his imprint on many of golf’s defining moments, from the duels between Arnold Palmer and Jack Nicklaus that defined the 1960s and ’70s, to the Golden Bear’s back-nine charge to win the 1986 Masters. He called Augusta National “the greatest theater in sports.” He retired from CBS in the late 1990s, but could still be found on the golf course. “Frank Chirkinian was a true pioneer,” said Dick Ebersol, chairman of NBC Sports. “There certainly would not have been a golf television business without him. And golf may never have developed into such a robust business without the way he connected the game on the course to the viewer at home. He will be sorely missed but the game is better forever because of him.” Critics recognized his passion and devotion by awarding him five Emmys and a Peabody during his career. He also was inducted into the Sports Broadcasting Hall of Fame. “The golfing world lost a great ambassador to the game,” said Lance Barrow, coordinating producer of golf and the NFL for CBS Sports. “He did as much for the game as anyone who has ever been associated with golf. His legacy will live on forever.” That’s why, when word spread that he
NEW YORK (AP) — Frank Chirkinian, the longtime golf producer for CBS who helped turn the Masters into one of the most watched events in sports television, has died. He was 84. Chirkinian died Friday at his home in North Palm Beach, Fla., after a long bout with lung cancer, his son told The Associated Press. He was surrounded by friends and family. The television pioneer was elected to the World Golf Hall of Fame just last month, during an emergency vote after it became widely known he was undergoing treatment for cancer. He will be inducted posthumously on May 9 in St. Augustine, Fla., in the lifetime achievement category. “He squeezed every drop of life out of his 84 years,” his son, Frank Chirkinian Jr., said during a phone interview. “I don’t think there was anything left.” Described as street-wise and direct, Chirkinian had said recently that getting into the Hall of Fame was the apex of his career — and what a robust career it was. He produced the first PGA Championship in 1958, at Llanerch Country Club near his home in Philadelphia, and two years later the first televised Winter Olympics from Squaw Valley. He also dreamed up the idea of putting cameras on blimps to cover college football games. But it was his work in golf that stood out, and at Augusta National in particular. He produced 38 editions of the Masters for CBS, bringing the majestic fairways and greens of Augusta to fans who could only dream of seeing them in person. “Frank Chirkinian was a visionary in every sense of the word,” PGA Tour commissioner Tim Finchem said. “He was an artist. The sport of golf was presented on television to generations of fans in innovative, imaginative and entertaining ways because of Frank.” Chirkinian introduced high-angle cameras and new angles, put roving reporters on the grounds, and made sure to capture the unique blend of sounds — the club hitting the ball, the ball falling into the cup — that came to define modern golf coverage. He even changed the way scores were

Bush. Those five were elected last September. Chirkinian had hoped to make the induction in May, and his son said he taped an acceptance speech that will be played during the ceremony.

Bench play keys Tar Heel victory over Duke CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) — North Carolina finished off its fiercest rival and the Atlantic Coast Conference regular-season race with one strong performance. Harrison Barnes scored 18 points to help No. 13 North Carolina beat No. 4 Duke 81-67 on Saturday night, clinching the ACC championship and the top seed in next week’s league tournament. Kendall Marshall had 15 points and 11 assists as the Tar Heels (24-6, 14-2) ended a three-game losing streak to their fierce rival and earned the top seed in next week’s ACC tournament. North Carolina also avenged last month’s loss at Cameron Indoor Stadium in which the Tar Heels blew a 16point lead in the first half. Once again, the Tar Heels built a big lead in the first half, this time 14 points. But Barnes and the Tar Heels protected that margin Saturday and stayed in control the entire night in a game that had tension and energy befitting a postseason game. Nolan Smith scored 30 points for Duke (27-4, 13-3), while Seth Curry had 20 points with six 3-pointers. In many ways, it was a replay of the first meeting for the Blue Devils. Just as before, Smith and Curry completely carried the offense while Kyle Singler struggled to make much of anything
while matching up much of the night against Barnes — the heralded recruit who picked North Carolina over Duke and other schools to cap a highly publicized recruiting battle. But Barnes was more aggressive than he was in the first meeting, leading an offense that shot 52 percent — the highest Duke had allowed in any league game this season. Barnes went just 3 for 8 and had nine points in the first game, but went 7 for 17 to go with five rebounds in this one. In addition, Marshall was in complete control of North Carolina’s offense, repeatedly pushing ahead in transition to set up plenty of good looks that allowed the Tar Heels to maintain a comfortable margin against the cold-shooting Blue Devils. And when it was over, fans and students rushed onto the court to celebrate a surprisingly dominant victory against the reigning national champions. In fact, North Carolina coach Roy Williams had to address the crowd for them to clear off and allow his players to celebrate with his own tradition — clipping down the nets after clinching a league title at home. Duke shot just 36 percent, including 6 for 27 from 3-point range. Singler, who shot just 3 for 17 in the first meeting, went 3 for 14 and missed all five 3-
point tries while finishing with just eight points. Now the Tar Heels will head into the ACC tournament seeking to continue their resurgence from that ugly 17-loss season of a year ago — which included two double-digit losses to the eventual national champion Blue Devils. North Carolina has won 17 of 19 games since losing to Texas on a lastsecond shot in December, though it didn’t look much like a real challenger to the favored Blue Devils in the ACC race after looking lost in November losses to Minnesota, Vanderbilt and Illinois, and an ugly 20-point loss in January to lowly Georgia Tech. But this group played defense well enough to keep its Hall of Fame coach happy all season and has been tough enough to win six games by three or fewer points. That included Wednesday night’s win at Florida State in which Barnes hit a 3-pointer in the final seconds for the 72-70 victory. Surprisingly, there was little drama against Duke. The Tar Heels led by 12 points at halftime and never let the Blue Devils get closer than five while avoiding a repeat of that second-half collapse at Cameron Indoor Stadium. Instead, they spent the final minutes with the sellout crowd at an ear-ringing roar.

Texas A&M downs Texas Tech for third in Big 12

North Carolina's Tyler Zeller dunks against Duke during the first half of a Tar Heel win over the Blue Devils, Saturday.
COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) — Texas A&M coach Mark Turgeon burst through the doors from the court and let out a scream as he jumped down the hallway. His 24th-ranked Aggies had just wrapped up third place in the Big 12 conference with a 66-54 win over Texas Tech on Saturday and he couldn’t contain his joy. “To be 4-4 four weeks ago and wondering where we’re going to go, then to finish 10-6, I’m just really proud of this group,” he said. “The highest we were picked was sixth and some people picked us eighth and rightfully so, we lost three good players. But this team was just really determined. We’ve got winners.” David Loubeau scored 21 points for the Aggies, who already had secured a bye in next week’s conference tournament. Texas A&M (23-7, 10-6) put together a 9-0 run to stretch its lead to 43-30 with just over 14 minutes remaining. The biggest highlight from the spurt
was a dunk by Loubeau that came after a nifty pass from B.J. Holmes. The Red Raiders went almost four minutes without scoring, thanks to turnovers and missed layups, as Texas A&M added to its lead. Texas Tech (13-18, 5-11) got 14 points from David Tairu. The 6-foot-8 Loubeau hurt Texas Tech inside, collecting four dunks. His last slam came after Mike Singletary’s dunk attempt for Tech bounced off the rim and Khris Middleton found Loubeau out front with about six minutes left. “I was just getting the ball and being aggressive,” Loubeau said. “B.J. and Dash (Harris) was doing a great job of finding me in transition and I just had my hands ready.” That dunk was part of a 9-2 Texas A&M run capped by a 3-pointer by Nathan Walkup that extended the lead to 57-40 and left Texas Tech coach Pat Knight shaking his head. “They got after us pretty well,” Knight said. “We did
not shoot well in the second half. We had our chances, but we just didn’t capitalize.” Turgeon loved Texas A&M’s defensive effort in the second half and was happy that the team responded after he asked them to be tougher at halftime. “Our defense is just at another level right now,” he said. “I feel good about this team right now.” The Red Raiders put together a 14-6 run, part of it coming against Texas A&M backups, to close to 63-54 with a minute left. Turgeon put his starters back in and they hit three free throws to end Tech’s comeback attempt. The Aggies edged Texas Tech 70-67 in the first meeting, but were in control of this one for most of the second half. The Red Raiders were coming off an 84-58 win over Oklahoma and Texas A&M bounced back from Wednesday’s 6451 loss at No. 2 Kansas. Texas A&M’s No. 3 seed in the tournament is the second highest in school
history behind the second seed the Aggies had in 2007. Holmes, one of five seniors playing in their last home game, had five points, five rebounds, five steals and four assists before fouling out with just under four minutes remaining. Fellow senior Walkup finished with eight points and five rebounds. Walkup said when Loubeau is having a game like he did Saturday it helps the whole team. “It’s huge,” he said. “We can throw the ball into the post with 10 seconds left and know you’re going to get a high-percentage shot.” Middleton added 13 points for Texas A&M. D’walyn Roberts had 11 points and 11 rebounds for Texas Tech. Knight raved about Roberts, who is one of seven seniors on the team. “He’s a great kid,” Knight said. “I wish I had 13 of him on this team.” Texas Tech was ahead by two early in the first half but the Aggies led 30-26 at the break.
several of them air balls. Laurence Bowers had 22 points, 10 rebounds and five steals for Missouri, which entered 17-0 with an average winning margin of 22.5 points at the Mizzou Arena, but flubbed its shot for a second unbeaten home record in three seasons.
tumultuous week with a runaway win, clinching a share of the Mountain West title and the top seed in the conference tournament. Charles Abouo scored 21 of his 25 points in the second half for the Cougars (28-3, 14-2). Francisco Cruz scored 13 of his 18 points in the first half for Wyoming (10-20, 313). Daylen Harrison and Amath M’Baye had 12 points apiece.
outright Big East title. After Notre Dame won at Connecticut earlier Saturday, Pitt (27-4, 15-3) needed a victory to secure the No. 1 seed for the Big East tournament for the first time since 2004 and third overall. Nasir Robinson, Travon Woodall and Gilbert Brown each had nine points for the Panthers. Villanova (21-10, 9-9) was without Corey Stokes (left hamstring) and leading scorer Corey Fisher was limited due to early foul trouble. But the Wildcats managed to stay close behind Maalik Wayns, who had 23 of his career-high 27
points in the second half.
College hoops capsules: No. 2 Kansas beat Missouri
COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) — Marcus Morris and Thomas Robinson had double-doubles and No. 2 Kansas wrapped up its seventh straight Big 12 championship by holding on for a 70-66 win over No. 22 Missouri on Saturday. Robinson had 15 points and 13 rebounds, returning to form less than a month after arthroscopic surgery on the right knee he injured against Missouri at home. Morris had 21 points and
10 rebounds for Kansas, which has won 14 of the last 17 in a lopsided border series. The Jayhawks (29-2, 142) committed a seasonworst 24 turnovers, but dominated inside and held Missouri (22-9, 8-8) to season-worst 29.3 percent shooting. They have won 10 of 11 heading into the conference tournament. The Tigers were 3 for 23 from 3-point range, many of them hurried attempts and

State topples Nevada, 77-68 LAS CRUCES (AP) — Troy Gillenwater scored 21 points to lead New Mexico State to a 77-68 victory over Nevada on Saturday night. The Aggies (15-16, 9-7) secured the No. 3 seed and a first-round bye for next week’s Western Athletic Conference tournament in Las Vegas. Gordo Castillo had a double-double, with 15 points on 4-of-6 shooting from 3point range, and 10 rebounds for New Mexico State. Christian Kabongo and Tshilidzi Nephawe each scored 10 points. Dario Hunt and Deonte Burton led Nevada (12-18, 8-8) with 14 points each and Derrell Conner and Kevin Panzer each had 10 points. The Aggies finished the game shooting 54 percent from the floor, outrebounded Nevada 35-25, and finished 7 for 12 from 3-point range and 16 for 24 from the free-throw line. The Wolf Pack led 36-35 at halftime but the Aggies outscored Nevada 12-6 to open the second half. Nevada answered with a 12-2 run to take its biggest lead to that point at 5549 with 11:41 to play. The Wolf Pack led
by as many as seven with 10:42 left, but New Mexico State took advantage of a 14for-19 effort at the free-throw line in the second half, helping the Aggies chip away at the Nevada lead and regain the lead on a pair of Kabongo free throws with 5:54 left. Kabongo followed with a drive to the basket to put NMSU up 65-62 with 5:24 to play. A fadeaway from Gillenwater and a triple from Hernst Laroche put NMSU up 72-64 with 2:50 to play. Nevada was 42.9 percent from the field but finished with 26 free-throw attempts, after shooting 15 for 16 from the line in the first half. The Wolf Pack trailed by 10 with 7:32 left in the first half, but outscored the Aggies 11-0 to take a one-point lead on a Panzer jumper in transition. NMSU scored 14 points in the paint in the first half, shooting 55.6 percent in the first 20 minutes while Nevada was 42.9 percent from the floor. But the Aggies committed three straight turnovers during Nevada’s run. NMSU committed 11 turnovers in the first half and 12 for the game.

Iowa 67, No. 6 Purdue 65 IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Jarryd Cole had 16 points and 10 rebounds in his final home game and Iowa stunned Purdue, clinching the Big Ten title for topranked Ohio State. Bryce Cartwright and Matt Gatens each added 13 points for the Hawkeyes (11-19, 4-14), who snapped the Boilermakers’ sevengame winning streak. JaJuan Johnson had 22 points and 12 rebounds for Purdue (25-6, 14-4), which shot 36.2 percent from the field.
Gary leads UNM win over AF ALBUQUERQUE (AP) — Playing on a heavily taped ankle, Dairese Gary had 17 points and seven assists in his final home game to lead New Mexico to a 6661 victory over Air Force on Saturday. Gary, who made 11 of 13 free-throw attempts for the Lobos (20-11, 8-8 Mountain West), turned his right ankle midway through the first half, and the three minutes it took to be taped up accounted for all of his time off the court. It was the third win in a row for New Mexico, which beat No. 3 BYU on Wednesday. “I thought we did a good job of coming back after a big win,” Lobos coach Steve Alford said. “We were a little sluggish in the first half.” The Falcons (15-14, 6-10) led for most of the first half, but New Mexico opened the second half with a 15-5 run to go up 46-38, with Gary scoring five points
during the surge. The Lobos never trailed again. New Mexico’s free-throw success helped fuel its rally, with the Lobos outscoring the Falcons 22-4 from the line. Drew Gordon added a double-double for the Lobos on 13 points and 10 rebounds. Derek Brooks scored 17 points for Air Force, which had a chance to tie the game in the final moments, trailing 6461. However, Brooks’ 3-point attempt with 10 seconds left missed, and a putback attempt by Michael Lyons rolled off the rim. “You have to get a win on your senior night,” Gary said. “But at halftime, it was stressful.” New Mexico earned the No. 5 seed in the Mountain West tournament and will play Colorado State. Air Force is the sixth seed and will face UNLV.

sophomore point guard Ben Madrid. Dexter’s offense took a while to warm up, not scoring its first points until the 5:13 mark, but then went on a 12-point run. Senior guard Tyler Miles started the rally after knocking down all three free throws after being fouled while shooting behind the arc. A steal by senior Steven Marquez set up the tying basket — he dribbled coast-to-coast but his layup was too strong off the glass — Miles got the offensive rebound and put it back up and in. Another Demon steal, this time by Justin Salas, put Dexter up, 75. After a defensive stop, Bryan Mireles hit a shot from the top of the key to increase the lead to four, followed by a trey from Salas. The Lions finally managed to score again on a free throw by Agar, then got a 3-pointer from sophomore Marcus Lopez to make it 12-9. Dexter sophomore Amador Amaya came back with a buzzer-beating 3 of his own, and it was 16-9 with the first period over and done. In the second, Mireles for Dexter and James Sanchez for Santa Rosa exchanged layups, twice, to make it 20-13. With 4:33 on the clock, Madrid hit his second of five 3s on the night, bringing the Lions back to within four, 20-16. Both teams then traded shots and turnovers, without any points, until Missael Barrientos hit a shot in the paint for Dexter with 2 minutes left to play in the half. Miles increased the lead to 26-16 with the 2-point shot and foul. In the third, the Santa Rosa of fense seemed unstoppable. Madrid nailed three 3s from the outside, and Agar and Sanchez combined for 10 points on the inside, turning a 10-point Demon halftime lead into a two-point Lion lead going into the fourth. The Demons managed three 3s of their own during the period, two from Miles and one from Marquez, to keep the game close. “For us to still be in it after a quarter like that, says a lot about our guys,” said Dexter coach James Bracken. “We tried to take Madrid out of his game and limit his touches. In the second half, we kind of got lax, got in our comfort zone and went away from that.” In the fourth, Agar dominated the interior, with nine points, but it was a basket by Sanchez that gave the Lions the win. David Lopez put the Demons up 50-49 by making a layup with only 7 seconds left in the game, but the experienced Santa Rosa team didn’t miss a beat. Without calling a timeout, they inbounded the ball, pushed it up the court and hit Sanchez with a pass underneath the basket. He made the uncontested layup to again put the Lions up by one, 5150, with 2.8 seconds remaining. Dexter called a timeout and tried to set up a play, but the full-court pass was picked off by the Lions, giving them the win. “We stuck to our game plan,” said Santa Rosa coach Frank Ortiz. “We didn’t change anything. We just needed to execute and play with more intensity. We were very pleased with how our kids responded in the second half.” Miles led Dexter with 20 points.

not feel like I was making anything,” he said. “Sometimes just changing the look of things, changing the feel of things, can kind of just spur something.” With his new mallet-style putter, Sabbatini had the lowest round for the second day in a row after tying the tournament course record with a 64 Friday. Sabbatini has won five PGA Tour titles, most recently at the 2009 Byron Nelson Championship. But he’s perhaps best known for once calling Woods “more beatable than ever,” long before the sex scandal that sent Woods’ career off track. Sabbatini said he dislikes being cast as a villain, which may be why he switched from Friday’s wide-brimmed black hat to a white one. He said he hadn’t decided what color to wear Sunday, but regardless, he’ll be wearing a target as the leader. Given the tough course and conditions at PGA National, Kelly doesn’t consider his five-shot deficit insurmountable. “It’s catchable in three holes,” he said. “You never know what three holes they may be. You’ve just got to play solid, get some birdies, and you never know.” Sabbatini’s take on being the front-runner: “You’d better be able to run faster if you’re being chased.” Windy conditions have made pars precious all week, and weather will likely be a factor again Sunday. With thunderstorms in the forecast for the afternoon, tee times for the final round were moved up. Sabbatini, Kelly and Yang will tee off last. Kelly, a Wisconsin native and a former hockey player who can get feisty himself, played with Sabbatini just last week at the Mayakoba Golf Classic. “We always have a good time together,” Kelly said. “Him talking it up doesn’t bother me, because I tend to do the same thing.” Lee Westwood, who fell to No. 2 in the rankings this week behind Martin Kaymer, was tied for 30th at 4 over after a 75. Westwood must finish alone in third place or better to regain the top ranking next week. First-round leader Spencer Levin was tied for 16th at 2 over after a 73.
PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. (AP) — After making consecutive birdies, Honda Classic leader Rory Sabbatini stood in the rough along the sixth fairway, complaining to a PGA Tour official about a delay in play and wondering what had become of the group just ahead of him. The strange interruption could have halted Sabbatini’s momentum. Instead, after a long wait he hit an iron 200 yards to 10 feet of the pin, one of his better shots among the 66 Saturday that gave him a cushy lead. Sabbatini will enter the final round at 9under 201, five shots ahead of Jerry Kelly and 2009 winner Y.E. Yang. The wait at No. 6 occurred when Kelly, playing two groups ahead of Sabbatini, lodged a shot in a palm tree. A newspaper photographer’s zoom lens was used to identify the ball as Kelly’s, allowing him to avoid being penalized for a lost ball. The inspection took time, so the twosome behind Kelly played through. Meanwhile, Sabbatini and playing partner Kyle Stanley waited and wondered how they had caught up with Kelly. “It was a little bit of dazed and confused,” Sabbatini said. “We’re like, ‘OK, where did he come from?’ And we’re trying to figure out what’s going on.” A South African who lives in Fort Worth, Texas, Sabbatini’s known for his feisty manner and candor on any topic — even Tiger Woods. But nothing has riled him up this week, and he tried to look at the delay as something positive. “Actually, I think maybe that might have helped me slow down a little out there,” he said. “It allowed me to back off a little bit and kind of refocus again. So I think that was a good thing.” Yang birdied the last two holes for a 3under 67 and moved into a tie for second with Kelly, who shot a roller-coaster 68. Gary Woodland also had a 68 and was fourth, six shots behind. Second-round leader Stanley had a 74 to drop seven strokes back. Sabbatini, who changed putters this week, made birdie putts of 2, 40, 12, 18 and 18 feet. “I’ve been putting well all year; I just did

Albert L. Mulliken
June 14, 1933 – March 1, 2011 Albert Laurance Mulliken, passed away on Tuesday, March 1, 2011, at the age of 77 surrounded by his loving family in Roswell, after a courageous battle with pancreatic cancer.

He was a mentor and lecturer for the Roswell Dental Assistants program at Eastern New Mexico University-Roswell and served the Head Start dental program for more than 25 years. An active member of the community, Albert previously served as a member and president (1973-1974) of the Roswell Rotary Club for more than 50 years. He was honored as a Paul Harris Fellow in December 1988, and recently became an honorary member, honors of which he was extremely proud. He served as a director of the United Way of Chaves County, director of the Eastern New Mexico Medical Foundation, board member of the Chaves County Cancer Society, member of the YMCA, director of the Roswell Chamber of Commerce, internal vice-president of the Roswell Jaycees, director of the Roswell Country Club, director of Security National Bank, director of Sunwest Bank of Roswell, vicepresident and director of the Roswell Symphony Orchestra, member of the Advisory Board of the Chaves County Headstart program, member of Roswell Lodge No. 18 A.F.&A.M., honorary board member of the Assurance Home and acting chairman of the Roswell Downtown Urban Renewal Committee.
An avid sports fan, Albert enjoyed watching the Kansas Jayhawks, the Goddard Rockets, and any activity that included his beloved children and grandchildren. He served as a director of the Babe Ruth Baseball Association, director of the Goddard High School Booster Club, assistant basketball coach at the Yucca Youth Center, and coach at the Noon Optimist Little League. He also served as assistant Cub Scout master for the Conquistador Council of the Boy Scouts of America. He was a member of the University of Kansas Alumni Association and Greater University Fund, the Golden Spade Club of the University of Missouri at Kansas City, and the NMMI, Goddard and Roswell high school booster clubs. Albert was a member of St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church. He served two terms on the vestry, including the position of junior and senior warden. He took part in the Men’s Group, was a Sunday school teacher, a choir member, and Cursillo team member. Albert is survived by his wife Jodene, whom he married on Dec. 27, 1969, in Coffeyville, Kan. They have five children: daughter Annie Hartman and son-inlaw Bill, of Bernalillo; son Del Jurney and daughterin-law Kristie, of Roswell; daughter Sarah Smyer and son-in-law Zack, of Tuttle, Okla.; son Reed Mulliken and daughter -in-law Bernadette, of Plainview, Texas; and son Matthew Mulliken and daughter-inlaw Ellie, of Heath, Texas. He is survived by 11 grandchildren and four greatgrandchildren. His sister Elaine Mulliken survives him in Lawrence, Kan., as do his brother-in-law Leo Sandon, his wife Marvel Lou, nephews Stephen and Phillip, one great-niece, and one great-nephew, of Tallahassee, Fla. He was preceded in death by his father Laurance, and his mother Cecil. Memorial services will be held on Friday, March 11, 2011, at 10 a.m., at St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church, with the Revs. Tom Gray, Frank Wilson, Maurice Geldert and Gay Wellborn presiding. Honorary pallbearers will be John Bassett, Jim Bruin, John Funk, Lewis Hightower, Jim Lankford, Bill Liakos, Ronnie Mayer, Bill Murphy, Joe Ponce, Carlos Rodriguez, Emilio Silva, Phelps White and the St. Andrew’s Men’s Breakfast and Prayer Group.

Arrangements have been entrusted to Ballard Funeral Home and Crematory. An online registry book can be accessed at ballardfuneralhome.com.
C. ‘Jackie’ Hess
A memorial service followed by a reception will be held at Westminster Presbyterian Church, 2801 W. Fourth St., at 11 a.m., Monday, March 7, 2011, for Carmen Jackie Hess, 83, who passed away Feb. 19, 2011, at Eastern New Mexico Medical Center. Jackie was born July 6, 1927, in Carlsbad, to Joe Edison and Carmen Jacobs Craft. Her parents preceded her in death. She married Larry Hess on June 29, 1965, in Roswell. He pre-
ceded her in death on Dec. 9, 1984. She is survived by her two children, son Blaine Hess and wife Abby, of Roswell and daughter Thane Baczek and husband Frank, of Salt Lake City; and six grandchildren, Camille, Larry and Gavin Hess, and Scott, David and Christine Baczek. Jackie’s childhood years were spent in several towns located in West Texas and New Mexico because her dad worked for the thenHumble Oil & Refining Co., and his job required him to be located in various communities. She moved to Roswell in the 1950s, where she worked at the then-Security National Bank. The happiest time of her life was when she met and eventually married Larry Hess, on June 29, 1965. They lived life to the fullest, enjoyed public service and community work and meeting people and friends as they campaigned together in local and statewide campaigns. Upon the death of her husband, Jackie was elected and succeeded him as county assessor from 1985 to 1988. Her life was dedicated to volunteerism and she truly enjoyed her group of friends through her memberships in the Assistance League, Chaves County Republican Women, Daughters of the Nile, Masonic Widows Club and Westminster Presbyterian Church. Jackie was president of Assistance League of Chaves County from 1998 to 1999, and president of Roswell Chapter of the Daughters of the Nile from 2000 to 2001. The family would like to extend a special thanks to Dr. Ali, Dr. Bolanos and the caring nurses in the critical care unit and medical floor of ENMMC during her final weeks. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to the Assistance League, Chaves County Republican Party or the favorite charity of your choice. Arrangements have been entrusted to Ballard Funeral Home and Crematory. An online registry can be accessed at ballardfuneralhome.com.

South Korean websites come under further attack Roswell Daily Record
SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — Unidentified attackers targeted more than two dozen South Korean government and private websites Saturday, a day after two waves of similar attacks, but officials reported no serious damage. A total of 29 websites were hit Saturday in so-called “denial of service” attacks, in which large numbers of “zombie” computers try to connect to a site at the same time in an attempt to overwhelm the server, the Korea Communications Commission said. Commission official Lee Sang-kug said the attacks were “so weak that no actual damage was detected so far.” Lee said the commission would keep a close watch on the situation in coming days, but that the fallout was likely to remain limited because the government and computer security companies were well prepared. Saturday’s attacks on sites including South Korea’s presidential office, the Foreign Ministry, the Defense Ministry, some financial institutions and U.S. Forces Korea followed two rounds Friday in which damage was also limited. Lee said that 40 websites were originally targeted Friday, though only 29 came under actual attack. A total of 29 were targeted Saturday, he said.
Protests in Libya
The National Police Agency said the attacks originated from 30 servers in 18 foreign countries or territories including the United States, Israel, Russia, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Thailand, Japan, India, Brazil and Iran. “We may find more servers behind this attack as it is only the beginning of the investigation,” said Jung Suk-hwa, head of the agency’s Cyber Terror Response Center. “Generally, there is someone else who controls all of these servers and we are working to figure out who it is.” In 2009, some government websites in South Korea and the U.S. were paralyzed by a similar type of attack that South Korean officials believed was conducted by North Korea. But U.S. officials have largely ruled out North Korea as the origin, according to cybersecurity experts. South Korean media have previously reported that North Korea runs an Internet warfare unit aimed at hacking into U.S. and South Korean military networks to gather information and disrupt service. Park Kun-woo, a spokesman for South Korean computer security company AhnLab, said Friday that China is also pointed to as a source of cyberattacks because a large amount of malware, or malicious software, originates from there.

NEWS IN BRIEF
Suspected Thai insurgents kill Buddhist monk
PATTANI, Thailand (AP) — Police say suspected Muslim militants have fatally shot a Buddhist monk in a drive-by motorcycle attack in insurgency-plagued southern Thailand. Police Maj. Gen. Rapeepong Sukpaiboon says two militants carried out the attack Saturday in the Kok Pho district of Pattani province. Two other people were wounded, including another monk. In a separate attack in nearby Kapo district, police Maj. Gen. Klanarong Phueakkumgrit says insurgents detonated a roadside bomb as a military truck passed by, wounding three soldiers. Pattani is one of three Muslim-majority provinces in southern Thailand that have been wracked by an insurgency that flared in 2004 and has claimed more than 4,00 lives since then.
Yemenis press on with anti-government protests
SANAA, Yemen (AP) — Tens of thousands are continuing with protests in several key cities across Yemen, pressing on with demands that the country’s president step down. The government has suspended classes at the universities in the capital Sanaa and the southern port city of Aden, which have been the focal points for daily demonstrations — inspired by the uprisings in Egypt and Tunisia — against President Ali Abdullah Saleh. The protesters are rallying on the main squares of Sanaa, Aden, and the cities of Taiz and Hadramawt. They are also demanding an investigation into the killing of four people during Friday’s protest in the northern town of Harf Sofyan. Several members of Saleh’s ruling Congress Party resigned on Saturday. Saleh has been a key U.S. ally in the campaign against al-Qaida.
China paper blasts Middle East protest movements

Gadhafi forces break rebel lines in Libyan city
TRIPOLI, Libya (AP) — Moammar Gadhafi’s forces on Saturday broke through rebel lines at an opposition-held city that is closest to Tripoli, in a dawn attack that could prove crucial to the regime’s defense of the Libyan capital, witnesses said. They said the forces loyal to the country’s longtime leader were inside Zawiya, 30 miles west of Tripoli, after overcoming rebel positions with heavy mortar shelling and machinegun fire. They said the shelling damaged government buildings and homes. The hours-long attack started at dawn and the rattle of gunfire and explosions could be heard as the witnesses spoke to The Associated Press by phone. They spoke on condition of anonymity, fearing for their own safety. They said several fires were raging in Zawiya on Saturday and that heavy black smoke hung over many parts of the city of some 200,000 people. They said snipers were shooting on sight anyone on the streets or residents who venture out on their homes’ balconies. The city’s rebels, they said, had retreated to take new positions deeper inside the city. “We will fight them on the streets and will never give up so long as Gadhafi is still in power,” said one of the rebel fighters, who also spoke on condition of anonymity for fear of reprisals.

James Hoyle Copeland
James Hoyle Copeland, 82, of Roswell, passed away on March 2, 2011, in the comfort of his family home.
At his request, there will be no services. Mr. Copeland was able to stay in the comfort of his home with the help of his wife Dorothy, grandson Seth Copeland, and the assistance of Hospice (Vista Care) and Comfort Keepers (Sheila). James was born July 6, 1928, in Lee County, Miss., to James Samuel and Sallie Mae Copeland, who preceded him in death. James retired from the Air Force in 1966 and was a 100 percent DAV. He and his family traveled the world while in the Air Force. James pursed his hobby of square dance calling for many years and owned the Do-Si-Do store in Memphis, Tenn., for sev-
eral years and again retired and moved to his home town of Shannon, Miss., where he still has family and friends. He married Dorothy Lou McMahon on June 6, 1947. He is survived by his wife Dorothy; two daughters, Betty J. Copeland-Pareo (Luther), of Roswell, and Theresa A. Copeland of Spotsylvania, Va.; and son James D. Copeland (Linda), of Nogales, Ariz.; three grandsons, Seth, Ian and Matthew, all of Arizona. He is also survived by his brother Robert (Joy), of Kentucky; and three sisters, Mildred Christian, Jeanette Simpson and Elizabeth Lindley, all of Mississippi. James was preceded in death by two sisters,
Loretta Perry, of Nashville, Tenn., and Mevaline Allen, of Shannon. He will be greatly missed by family, friends and his beloved dog Ling Chu, who slept by his bed throughout his illness. All arrangements are in the capable hands of the Ballard Funeral Home.
Lawrence J. Ferns
Services are pending at LaGrone Funeral Chapel for Lawrence J. Ferns, 88, of Roswell. Mr. Fer ns passed away March 5, 2011. A complete announcement will be made when arrangements are finalized. Arrangements are under the direction of LaGrone Funeral Chapel.
BEIJING (AP) — A Chinese Communist Party-run newspaper on Saturday attacked anti-government protest movements in the Middle East and dismissed the possibility of something similar happening in China. Such movements have brought nothing but chaos and misery to their countries’ citizens and are engineered by a small number of people using the Internet to organize illegal meetings, the Beijing Daily, published by the city’s party committee, said in a front-page editorial. “The vast majority of the people are strongly dissatisfied (with the protests), so the performance by the minority becomes a self-delusional ruckus,” the newspaper said. The editorial appeared amid anonymous calls posted on the Internet for Middle East-inspired protests in dozens of Chinese cities the past two Sunday afternoons.
‘Slumdog’ star says home lost in Mumbai fire
MUMBAI, India (AP) — “Slumdog Millionaire” child star Rubina Ali said Saturday that her home had burned down in a fire that raged through a crowded slum in the Indian city of Mumbai. Most of the awards that she received for her role as a poverty-stricken child in the Oscar-winning film were destroyed in the blaze that erupted in the Garib Nagar slum late Friday, the 12-year-old said. She said that she and other members of her family were watching television when they heard shouts of a fire and ran out of their tin-roofed shanty. She lost all her awards and her collection of newspaper clippings and photographs from the success of the 2008 film. The child star said the family was yet to move into a new apartment paid for by a trust set up by the film’s director, Danny Boyle.
No one killed by quake in New Zealand cathedral
WELLINGTON, New Zealand (AP) — Searchers declared Saturday that no one had died in the rubble of Christchurch’s wellknown cathedral — a rare piece of good news in the final days of a grim recovery operation following an earthquake that devastated New Zealand’s secondlargest city and killed at least 165 people.

brought her white poodle every year since the band’s inception nine years ago. “For every day of carnival she has a costume,” she said, holding up the fluffy white pup in a burlesque outfit of black leather and lace. “Me Beija que sou Cineasta” — translated as “Kiss me, I’m a filmmaker” — appeals to those in the industry and their fans. “Imprensa que Eu Gamo,” which translates loosely as “Press me and I’ll fall for you,” brings together journalists and friends. The lyrics of their theme song always play off the year’s news: This time,

Rio’s roving street bands keep Carnival free, fun
RIO DE JANEIRO (AP) — Nuns in hot pants, nuns in full habits and even nuns with bushy mustaches — the motley band of costumed revelers gathered to celebrate the first day of Carnival, joining one of the growing number of roving street bands that take over Rio de Janeiro during the five-day party. The “nuns” are all followers of the Car melitas, a group started in 1991 by friends who gathered for soccer and drinks just outside a convent of Carmelite nuns. Jokes about the sisters escaping to join the party gave rise to the band, which parades twice: at the beginning of Car nival, when the nuns supposedly escaped the convent join the fun, and on the last day, when they returned to their cloistered existence. “We’re keeping the tradition, remembering the first nuns who jumped the fence,” said Eliete dos Santos, 25, who was out with five other costumed “sisters” as the partying began Friday. While the public face of Rio’s Carnival is the famed two-day parade of samba groups, which can each spend more than $5 million on extravagant costumes and floats, its heart lies in these roving groups of irreverently costumed, mostly inebriated partiers who create a free, open-toall street Carnival. Their cavorting is likely to hit a fever pitch Saturday. A revival over the past 10 to 15 years has given the roughly century-old tradition of street bands a new swagger. This year, 424 of them registered with the mayor’s office. Countless others, some little more than a group of good friends with a band and some beers, don’t even bother with the legalities. About three weeks before Carnival’s official kickoff, they start parading around town, tying up traffic and playing traditional tunes or their own, wacky theme songs composed to make fun of the year’s news, politicians, celebrities, or anyone who strikes their fancy. This being Car nival, there are only the loosest rules. Generally, they congregate on a street corner, a bar or a square. Once their following swells to a sufficiently animated band of revelers, they perform a short circuit around the neighborhood, drawing along the dancing masses. Their names reflect their idiosyncrasies. Some carry monikers that point to their geographical origin in the city: “Suvaco de Cristo,” literally translated as “The Armpit of Christ,” is based in a neighborhood more or less underneath the outspread arms of Rio’s Christ the Redeemer statue. Many of these roving street bands go for laughs with impossible to translate names that make nottoo-subtle references to
two favored Carnival pursuits: making out and drinking. “Come with me, I’m easy,” ‘’I’ve stopped drinking, but I haven’t stopped lying” and “Poke her and she’ll jump,” are among the tamer examples. For the Carmelitas, nuns reign even though all are welcome. Marcelo Carvalho, 34, dressed as a protesting Egyptian in a tunic and sign saying “Down with the mummies” tried to talk some of them into a change of habit. “Islam is where it’s at,” he told the costumed nuns. “After all the scandals, you can’t shame the Catholic Church anymore. T ry a new religion!” The “Carmelitas” band entices thousands through the steep, cobble-stoned streets of Santa Teresa, one of Rio’s most picturesque neighborhoods. Some bands call out to small but specific crowds. One group devoted to pets and their owners leaves in the early morning and promenades along Copacabana beach. Its sound truck, topped by a giant inflatable puppy, draws a family-friendly crowd. The animals range from dogs in fairy wings, party hats and ballet tutus to more exotic pets like a rooster in a polka-dot clown suit. Rita dos Santos has
WikiLeaks, Hosni Mubarak’s fall in Egypt, and the election of Brazil’s first female president were all fair game. “Come uncover my scoop, and read between my lines. ... Use and abuse your thesaurus, and fall into samba, my friend,” participants belted out the chorus in a marketplace as they drew followers. “The dancing is not their specialty, but the conversation is great,” said Erica Paim, 21, a college student who has donned the press group’s black-and-red colors for three years in a row. “Everyone knows everyone, and everyone
It’s the gayest street band in town, Alci Bueno, 41, said as it met near an Ipanema street that concentrates many of the area’s gay bars. Bueno comes from Niteroi, a town across the bay from Rio, to join the fun. “It’s a Carnival classic — traditional and eclectic,” he said of Banda de Ipanema. “You find all kinds of people — anything you can imagine. Anything — so be careful!”

Fans of jazz music will soon have a chance to be entertained while also contributing to an important cause. The fourth annual Community Foundation of Chaves County’s annual Benefit Concert, featuring the Roswell Jazz Orchestra, is scheduled for 6:30 p.m., Friday, March 18, in the ballroom at the Best Western Sally Port Inn, 2000 N. Main St. The concert will feature the Roswell Jazz Orchestra, with its mix of big band, standards, Latin and contemporary jazz sounds. “It’s going to be an outstanding evening of jazz music by wonder ful musicians,” Susie Russell, executive director of the CFCC, said. The Roswell Jazz Orchestra includes Buck Bell on drums, Tom Berckes on trumpet, Robert Bowles on guitar, Tony Castle on trumpet, Chuck Dawe on trombone, Melanie Deason on alto and tenor saxophone, Ed Eaton on trumpet, Jonathan Entzminger on tuba, David Hett on piano, Taryn Houghtalin on vocals, Tom Johnson on baritone saxophone, Mike Lee on trombone, Angel Mayes on alto saxohone, Mary Jo McGrath on percussion, Greg Odem on trumpet, Kent Taylor on bass guitar, Ken Tuttle on trumpet, Laurel Webb on trombone and Tina Williams on vocals.

evening of lovely jazz music, we want the public to know the Community Foundation is a powerful conduit for local businesses and individuals to contribute back to the community — to our neighbors, our friends, those who are really struggling,” Russell said. “... I want to stress to the community that by supporting the Community Foundation, they are actively helping create a better community.” Russell said that from 2003 through
2010, the CFCC gave grants totaling $88,000 to 47 dif ferent non-profit organizations in Chaves County. The organizations receiving grant money from the CFCC in 2010 include All Saints Catholic School, Animal Welfare Alliance, Assistance League of Chaves County, Casa Esperanza, CHOICES Center for Independent Living, Conquistador Council Boy Scouts of America, the Down Syndrome Foundation for Southeast New Mexico, Embrace
Inc., the High Plains Writing Project, Ronald McDonald House, Roswell Literacy Council, Roswell Museum and Arts Center, Roswell SAFE Coalition, the First Tee of the Pecos Valley, The Kids’ Closet, the Roswell Refuge for Battered Adults, The Salvation Army, Tobosa Developmental Services, Wings For L.I.F.E., and Young Life. The funds raised from the CFCC’s benefit concerts and other events, such as the Angel Gala in December, are invested carefully, Russell said. “I’m pleased to report that in 2010, the (foundation’s) endowments earned 15.7 percent (net earnings), which is a testament to the diligence of our investment committee, who have designed, in conjunction with our financial management company, a successful investment portfolio,” Russell said. As a result, those in Roswell and Chaves County who donate through the foundation’s membership program, annual giving and planned giving programs should feel assured their funds are in good hands, Russell said. “People need to have confidence in the Community Foundation of Chaves County and feel comfortable investing their money with us,” Russell said. “We have conservative management that is conscious of our fiduciary responsibility to handle our investors’ monies in the best possible way.” Russell encourages everyone to come to the concert — not only is the money going to a worthy cause, but it’s fun, she added. Meanwhile, the members of the Roswell Jazz Orchestra are getting ready to play. The orchestra is “all over the place” in the types of jazz they perform, Taylor said. “We’re definitely excited about it,” he said. “It’s one of the bigger venues and events we’ve had the pleasure of playing.” For more information on the CFCC’s Benefit Concert, call 622-8900.

Bullies making school difficult for children QUESTION: Our son is in third grade, and we suspect that some of the older kids at school are taunting him. He doesn't want to talk about it, though, and keeps assuring us everything is fine. What should we do? JIM: If the older kids are bothering him, he probably feels very alone right now. I know what that’s like. When I was a kid, I fell victim to the neighborhood bully. My parents weren’t around, so it eventually fell to my older sister to come to my defense. Long story short: She decked him, and he never bothered me again. That’s obviously not the best way to deal with this issue! Bullying is a rising problem in schools. Kids in this situation need to know that Mom and Dad are on their side. Author Brad Lewis has identified four ways parents can support their kids when they’re being bullied: 1. Don’t wait for your child to talk about it. If you sense there’s a problem, say, “Is someone picking on you at school?” Some bullies will threaten to harm a child if he tells. Keeping the lines of communication open will assure your child that he's not alone. 2. Watch for nonverbal signs of bullying. Does your child want to stay home? Does he keep “losing” his lunch money? Is he hungry right after school even though he took a big lunch? These could be warning signs. 3. Encourage your child to make friends. Being with one other buddy might deter a bully. While peer support does not replace adult intervention, it does provide an emotion-

al safety net and can help restore lost hope. 4. Let the school know what’s going on — but in a discreet manner. Your child may fear that if you make a fuss, it will make things worse. Keep the same thing in mind if you know the parents of the bullies and decide to contact them. ** ** ** QUESTION: I have a 12-year-old boy who never gets his chores or homework done because he’s obsessed with video games. I’ve tried telling him he can’t play until he gets his work done, but then he rushes through his work and does a sloppy job because he’s so anxious to play. I'm at my wit’s end!

Family gets most of its food from their backyard
PROSPER, Texas (AP) — As the weather warms and the brown landscape turns green, Stephanie Weyenberg’s thoughts tur n to planting for her family’s early spring garden. Gardening is more than just a hobby: She and her husband, Matt, grow most of the fruit and vegetables they eat. They also rely on a half dozen chickens roaming their backyard, for eggs and to entertain their kids, ages 11, 9 and 6. The family gets beef, chicken and raw milk from farms. “At some point it snowballed into, ‘Oh wow, now we’re grinding our own wheat and have a garden and try to eat from that,” said Weyenberg, 37, who home-schools her children. Inspired to tur n away from processed foods after their two younger children had stomach troubles, the Weyenbergs started with small changes. Those led to a move about three years ago from a big house with a tiny yard to a smaller home on an acre lot farther out in the countryside, in Prosper, about 45 miles north of Dallas. Matt Weyenberg, a doctor at a family medical practice called Village Health Partners in Plano, said his family’s experiences serve as a way for him to talk to patients about healthy eating. He said he’ll tell them: “You don’t have to go crazy like we are at my house and grind your own wheat and have chickens and a big garden, but try to eat less processed foods, try to get more organic food, locally grown, whole grains, and fruits and vegetables.” “There’s hardly a day goes by that I don’t — all of us — don’t see patients who could literally get off several of their medications
disappear with time. College students are failing classes and husbands are ignoring their wives because of gaming. Here’s what I recommend. Your son needs to be reminded that video games are a privilege to be earned, not a right. While he is at school one day, remove the game console from the family room and hide it. When your son discovers that the video games are gone, very calmly state that they have become a distraction. Explain that the video games will be put away for a while until he learns to focus on his grades and chores. If you see him being disciplined with his work for several weeks in a row, you may consider reintroducing video games. Then, allow him to play only for a short period of time on the weekends, as long as he continues to complete his homework and chores. Eventually, give him the goal of monitoring his own video game time and schoolwork. After all, before you know it, he will be a young man, needing the muscles of self-discipline and balance. As the saying goes, “It’s easier to raise a boy than fix a man!” ** ** ** 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.

potentially if they just ate better,” said Matt Weyenberg, 36. “Some people are very receptive to that. Of course some people aren’t: They don’t feel like they are at a place where they can.” The Weyenbergs might have taken gardening a step further than many, but a growing number of American households are doing some vegetable gardening, according to the National Gardening Association — up from about 27 million households in 2005 to about 31 million households last year. The nonprofit group said the main
reasons are to have bettertasting and higher quality food, and to save money on groceries. That might involve just putting some tomato plants out on a city patio, or it might be as involved as what the Weyenbergs are doing, said Susan Littlefield, horticulture editor for the gardening association. Brett L. Markham, author of “Mini Farming: Self-Suf ficiency on 1/4 Acre” (Skyhorse, 2010), said he raises chickens and has fruit trees and a garden, producing about 80 percent of the food his fam-
ily eats. They began backyard farming on a half-acre lot in New Ipswich, N.H., after developing an interest in organic foods about eight years ago. “I do have a sense that my situation is becoming less and less unique. A lot of people are trying to grow something, no matter how small,” Markham said. He said that often people who contact him say they developed an interest in backyard farming because of economic concerns, but other reasons include wanting to feel a connection to the soil.

New book sheds new light on Lincoln’s racial views Roswell Daily Record
McLEAN, Va. (AP) — Abraham Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address has inspired Americans for generations, but consider his jarring remarks in 1862 to a White House audience of free blacks, urging them to leave the U.S. and settle in Central America. “For the sake of your race, you should sacrifice something of your present comfort for the purpose of being as grand in that respect as the white people,” Lincoln said, promoting his idea of colonization: resettling blacks in foreign countries on the belief that whites and blacks could not coexist in the same nation. Lincoln went on to say that free blacks who envisioned a permanent life in the United States were being “selfish” and he promoted Central America as an ideal location “especially because of the similarity of climate with your native land — thus being suited to your physical condition.” As the nation marked the 150th anniversary of Lincoln’s first inauguration, Friday, a new book by a researcher at George Mason University in Fairfax makes the case that Lincoln was even more committed to colonizing blacks than previously known. The book, Colonization After Emancipation, is based in part on newly uncovered documents that authors Philip Magness and Sebastian Page found at the British National Archives outside London and in the U.S. National Archives.
In an interview, Magness said he thinks the documents he uncovered reveal Lincoln’s complexity. “It makes his life more interesting, his racial legacy more controversial,” said Magness, who is also an adjunct professor at American University. Lincoln’s views about colonization are well known

among historians, even if they don’t make it into most schoolbooks. Lincoln even referred to colonization in the preliminary Emancipation Proclamation, his September 1862 warning to the South that he would free all slaves in Southern territory if the rebellion continued. Unlike some others, Lincoln always promoted a voluntary colonization, rather than forcing blacks to leave.
But historians differ on whether Lincoln moved away from colonization after he issued the official Emancipation Proclamation on Jan. 1, 1863, or whether he continued to support it. Magness and Page’s book offers evidence that Lincoln continued to support colonization, engaging in secret diplomacy with the British to establish a colony in British Honduras, now Belize. Among the records found at the British archives is an 1863 order from Lincoln granting a British agent permission to recruit volunteers for a Belize colony. “He didn’t let colonization die of f. He became very active in promoting it in the private sphere, through diplomatic channels,” Magness said. He surmises that Lincoln grew weary of the controversy that surrounded colonization ef forts, had become which enmeshed in scandal and were criticized by many abolitionists. As late as 1864, Magness found a notation that Lincoln asked the attor ney general whether he could continue to receive counsel from James Mitchell, his colonization commissioner, even after Congress had eliminated funding for Mitchell’s office. Illinois’ state historian, Tom Schwartz, who is also a research director at the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library in Springfield, Ill., said that while historians differ, there is ample evidence that Lincoln’s

Lincoln gave several speeches referring to the rights blacks had earned as they enlisted in the Union Ar my, for instance. And presidential secretary John Hay wrote in July 1864 that Lincoln had “sloughed off” colonization. “Most of the evidence points to the idea that Lincoln is looking at other ways” to resolve the transition from slavery besides colonization at the end of his presidency, Schwartz said. Lincoln is not the only president whose views on race relations and slavery
were more complex and less idealistic than children’s storybook histories suggest. George Washington and Thomas Jefferson were both slaveholders despite misgivings. Washington freed his slaves when he died. “Washington, because he wanted to keep the union, knew he had to ignore the slavery problem because it would have torn the country apart, said James Rees, director of Washington’s Mount Vernon estate. “It’s tempting to wish he had tried. The nation had more chance of dealing with slavery with Washington than with anyone else,” Rees said, noting the
esteem in which Washington was held in both the North and the South. Magness said views on Lincoln can be strongly held and often divergent. He noted that people have sought to use Lincoln’s legacy to support all manner of political policy agendas since the day he was assassinated. And nobody can claim definitive knowledge of Lincoln’s own views, especially on a topic as complex as race relations. “He never had a chance to complete his vision. Lincoln’s racial views were evolving at the time of his death,” Magness said.
Space robot R2’s debut being moved up after clamor CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP) — The 220-mile-high unveiling of R2, the first humanoid robot in space, is being moved up at the urging of the president of the United States. Astronaut Catherine Coleman said Friday that she and the 11 other humans aboard the shuttle-station complex want to get R2 out of its packing material as soon as possible. “In fact, we’re all pretty sure that we hear AP Photo scratching from the inside there,” she said during a Astronaut Steve Bowen participates in the mission's second crew news conference. spacewalk, Wednesday, as construction and maintenance Robonaut 2, better continue on the International Space Station. known as R2, flew to the International Space Sta- me,” the robot said in a ery leaves.

It’s just us some great advice about unwrap R2 before Discov- humans who are anxious.”
Project manager Ron Diftler noted that Robonaut hasn’t seen the outside world for quite a while. It was boxed up for six months aboard Discovery, awaiting liftoff. The flight was delayed four months. Diftler isn’t surprised by “the fervor” surrounding R2. “Humanoid robots are something that a lot of people can identify with, and having the first humanoid robot in space, especially when so many people have seen things like this in science fiction, it’s getting a lot of people’s excitement up,” Diftler told The Associated Press on Friday. “We’re excited about it, too.” Regardless of when the packing foam comes off, R2 won’t be tested until May. That’s when flight controllers will send up the operating software. Coleman, both a scientist and engineer, said she can’t wait to test Robonaut during the remainder of her space station stay. As
robots travel into space, it’s important to learn how they operate in weightlessness, she said. Better to learn those lessons inside the space station, before a robot ventures out on a spacewalk or roams other planets, she added. It will take both humans and robots “to get us further out into the universe, and Robonaut is a good first step,” Coleman said. R2 — built from the waist up — will undergo a series of tests before tackling simple space station chores at its permanent home. It will get a pair of legs and other upgrades next year. This is Discovery’s final voyage. It’s being retired once it returns to Earth on Wednesday, 13 days after blasting off, and will be sent to the Smithsonian Institution for display. Only two shuttle missions remain before the fleet is retired this summer. NASA Administrator Charles Bolden will announce the final resting
places for the two other space shuttles on April 12, the 30th anniversary of the first shuttle flight. More than 20 museums and educational institutions across the country, including the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex, are vying for display rights. Enterprise, a test vehicle that never made it to space, is also up for dibs. As for Discovery — NASA’s oldest and most traveled shuttle — commander Steven Lindsey said he and his crew have been too busy to focus on the historic aspect. But every so often, he reflects on the fact that Discovery will never fly again. “What a great vehicle it’s been, 39 missions, nearly one year on orbit,” Lindsey said. “It’s just really inspiring to me and kind of bittersweet and quite frankly sad, knowing that when we land, that will be it for this vehicle.”
What’s this spring’s hot color for homes? Honeysuckle
Bright red-pink and bursting with energy, honeysuckle is dominating home decor trends in 2011 as a playful and vibrant alternative to the serene turquoise of 2010. Love it or hate it, the hue is everywhere this spring. And design experts say there are many easy ways to incorporate it into your home without breaking the bank. “Add a lively flair to interior spaces with honeysuckle patterned pillows, bedspreads, small appliances and tabletop accessories,” says Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute. Honeysuckle is the official color of 2011 as chosen by the institute, the research arm of the Carlstadt, N.J.-based Pantone Inc., which largely sets color standards for the fashion and home industries. This year’s reddish pink shade lights a fire to
your senses and revs you up, says Eiseman. “The color says we need to be hopeful and think of things that satisfy as many senses as we can,” she says. A striking, eye-catching shade, honeysuckle works well for day and night, and complements a variety of blues, greens and oranges, Eiseman says. “I can’t think of a pink combination that doesn’t work,” says Carey Vizzi Jacobs, an interior and wallpaper designer in Maryland and Pennsylvania. “Pink and red. Pink and navy. Pink and turquoise. Even pink and orange. Honeysuckle pairs nicely with so many colors.”
Paint/Wallpaper One easy and inexpensive way to brighten up your home and stay on top of design trends is by painting an accent wall in
honeysuckle. If pink walls seem a bit daunting, try a wall in the bedroom first — whether it’s paint or a luxurious wallpaper, Vizzi Jacobs says. “Wallpaper does wonders to warm up the bedroom,” she adds. “I like that feeling of pink surrounding you and giving you a nice warm hug.” A new wallpaper collection by New Jersey-based Thibaut Designs features honeysuckle in a variety of vibrant lattices, damasks and florals on frothy pastel and rich velvety backgrounds. Bold wall choices like honeysuckle are a good balance to neutral furniture, particularly white, cream and tan, says Thibaut’s Molly McDermott Walsh. Throw Pillows Bright and lively throw pillows are another cheap
and easy way to pepper your home with this warm hue. Bed, Bath and Beyond is carrying several pillows with bold honeysuckle stripes and other prints for under $50, as is World Market, says Morgan Cullen of Austin, Texas, who created the home decor blog Casa Cullen. She also suggests heading to the fabric store and making your own pillows or chair cushions. “Honeysuckle chair covers on all chairs or just the head of the table would be quite the statement maker in the dining room,” Cullen says.
Textiles If pillows aren’t your thing, try drapes or linens in a honeysuckle print for an instant update in the kitchen or bedroom, says Vizzi Jacobs. “In the bath, honeysuckle embroidered or appliqued
monograms on white towels are a pleasant surprise,” she says. Another easy way to brighten up your bathroom is with a pink rug or shower curtain, such as Pottery Barn Teen’s white cotton percale shower curtain ($49) edged with a honeysuckle ribbon, Cullen says. Table runners, napkins and sheets are also showing up in shades of honeysuckle this spring.
Accents Honeysuckle can be popped into small accent pieces throughout your home for a more understated, yet updated, look. Cullen suggests painting three wall frames with honeysuckle-colored spray paint and placing them around black-and-white photos as easy do-it-yourself wall art for any room. She also suggests painting the back wall of builtins, media or bookshelves
in honeysuckle for a burst of color, as well as real honeysuckle flowers in a vase on the dining room table or next to your bed. Even a strip of grosgrain pink ribbon can instantly change a lamp shade or give extra flair to curtains, says Vizzi Jacobs. Anthropologie of fers whimsical touches of honeysuckle this spring in a pink poppy ceramic door knob ($8) and a melon-colored ceramic and brass drawer pull ($6), Cullen says. And don’t forget artwork, even in unexpected places. “All bathrooms deserve great art, so invest in a cheery honeysuckle-colored piece that will make you smile year round,” Cullen says.

Bam! Pow! Indian comics clamor to make their mark
Fallen from grace
Dior fashion house chief executive officer Sidney Toledano delivers his speech before the presentation of the last Fall-Winter ready-to-wear 2012 collection designed by John Galliano, in Paris, Friday.
Fashion world bids adieu to Galliano’s Dior reign
PARIS (AP) — Fashionistas turned the page Friday on one of the most extraordinary chapters in fashion history, paying their respects to John Galliano’s phenomenal 15year tenure at the House of Dior — which came to an abrupt and shocking end earlier this week when the luxury label fired the British designer amid allegations he hurled anti-Semitic insults. A somber atmosphere befitting a funeral hung over the label’s fallwinter 2011-12 ready-to-wear show, as about 1,000 black-clad fashion editors, journalists and stylists took in Galliano’s final collection for the house. The clothes on the runway were unmistakably his: You could see Galliano’s hallmark featherlight touch on the bias-cut gowns in sheer silk and his over-the-top outrageousness in the ’70s boho looks in rich jewel tones that opened the show. But although he was present in spirit, Galliano didn’t attend the show. For the first time in 15 years, he didn’t emerge at the end of the
fashion parade, looking as puffedup, haughty and triumphant as Napoleon after a hard won victory in battle, to take his victory strut. Instead, Dior’s studio — the dozens of seamstresses, tailors and embroiders who brought Galliano’s designs to life — took to the catwalk for a final bow. The audience gave them a standing ovation, and the craftspeople, all clad in white lab coats, clapped back. Tears were shed. “I want to say it’s history in the making, but it’s more like history in the unmaking,” Linda Fargo, Bergdorf Goodman senior vice president, and a fixture at Dior shows, told The AP. “It’s a sad day. Everyone’s kind of wistful.” The saga of Galliano’s undoing was the biggest thing to hit the insular world of fashion since last year’s suicide of another preternaturally talented British designer, Alexander McQueen. News reports last Friday that Galliano had been questioned about allegations he hurled anti-Semitic remarks at a couple at a trendy
Paris bar hit the industry like a bomb. Dior’s response was swift and unequivocal. First they suspended him, and after further allegations of similar behavior emerged and a video showing a visibly drunk Galliano praising Hitler went viral on the Internet, the house said it had begun procedures to fire him. The announcement was made Tuesday, the start of Paris’ nineday-long ready-to-wear marathon, and the unfolding drama riveted the fashion world and cast a pall over the displays. It was initially unclear whether Dior would even go ahead with its runway show without its designer, who’s rumored to be in rehab in Arizona. Dior has declined to comment about Galliano’s whereabouts. The fate of Galliano’s signature line, John Galliano, which is owned by Dior parent company LVMH Moet Hennessy, is still a question mark. The label’s spokesman, Alexandre Malgouyres, said the runway show scheduled for Sunday had been scrapped.
NEW DELHI (AP) — The superhero — bulging legs stuffed into tight pants, broad chest adorned with a symbol of power — has vowed to fight the enemies of humanity. He is not Superman. He is not Batman. He is Shaktimaan, protector of all humanity — at least in India. In the cartoon skies over India soar a host of comic book superheros that have little to do with the leotarded titans of the West. Instead, the greenskinned and venomous Nagraj fights evil with snakes, widely worshipped across India, while threeeyed Shakti, clad in clingy leopard skins and skull ornaments, channels the Hindu death goddess Kali in waging her battle against the local scourge of female infanticide. It’s heroes like these — drawn from India’s culture and mythology, and endowed with powers from Hindu gods — that the $65 million Indian comic industry hopes will launch them into new media like animated TV shows, action films, advertising and digital Internet distribution. Indian comic producers insist homegrown characters are best at connecting with the national public and diaspora — and even crucial for educating them about their culture. It’s a for mula they say has allowed them to compete with more sophisticated Wester n and Japanese comics since the 1960s, when the first Indian comics were launched with the Amar Chitra Katha series based on the ancient Sanskrit epics Mahabarata
and Ramayana. “We have no need for new superheros, we have so many of our own. The idea is to use the Indian stories, Indian mythology, in comic format to teach children about their history and culture,” said Rushabh Sanghavi, marketing manager at ACK media, which publishes the Amar Chitra Katha as well as the wholesome children’s series Tinkle. Though the industry suffered during the 1990s as Western comics and Hollywood films invaded India’s newly opened market and took hold, Indian comics have seen a revival in the last decade thanks to new funding and technologies for printing, animation, digitizing and distribution. India saw its first feature-length animation in 2005, the story of the Hindu monkey god Hanuman, and several comics including Shaktimaan have been made into TV series. Animation schools and production companies have multiplied, drawing students away from the traditional tracts for medicine or engineering. The Picasso Animation College, which unleashed its first graduates last year, has five applicants for every $11,000-tuition spot at its schools in Delhi and across India, placement director Shelly Walia said. Comics are increasingly being used to advertise everything from bubble gum to noodles. The Indian army has serialized the triumphs of its real-life heroes for its recruitment drive, while banks are tur ning to cartoons for easy-to-read staff instructions.

The chicken breast vs. the thigh: Healthy cooks enjoy both
Most health-conscious cooks focus on boneless, skinless chicken breasts. It makes sense. This ubiquitous piece of the bird is convenient, versatile and virtually fat-free. But there are other — and often overlooked — options on the same bird. The more flavorful, and just as convenient boneless, skinless thigh really should be near the top of your shopping list. Here’s why: While it is true that the humble thigh is fattier than the breast — about 7 grams per 3-ounce cooked portion — that fat brings with it the extra flavor and moisture breasts can so often lack. Plus, the dark meat of the thigh contains the nutritional jackpot of considerably more iron and twice the zinc of white meat. That extra fat also means that it’s harder to ruin a chicken thigh recipe, even with quick, high-heat cooking. Unlike with chicken breasts, it’s difficult to end up with a flavorless, overcooked, shoe-leather dry chicken thigh. Boneless, skinless thighs are just as convenient as breasts (although you may want to trim off any extra
Patrick’s Day, combines two techniques: flash browning over high heat and a quick, low-heat braise. By switching around the sauce ingredients you can tur n this method for cooking thighs into an endless variety of dishes Here, the recipe calls for 3/4 cup of a stout beer such as Guinness (you can drink the rest while the thighs are braising), and just a single strip of chopped bacon to make a smoky, malty sauce that’s nicely balanced by the sweetness of peas, carrots and onions, plus the earthiness of a handful of mushrooms. Serve with mashed potatoes or even an Irish colcannon (potatoes mashed with kale or cabbage) to help soak up all the dark and flavorful sauce. ———

DEAR ABBY: In our family, pets are irreplaceable, full-fledged, beloved members. One of them was a beautiful, very affectionate cat we had rescued as an abandoned kitten. T ragically, he didn’t make it through an operation we hoped would save his life. His death was a needless accident, and we are writing this in the hope that you will print it to warn other readers so no other animals will die in a similar fashion. On the day before he died, he suddenly stopped eating and drinking. He became lethargic and vomited several times. Our vet diagnosed him with a bowel obstruction. Apparently, he had eaten a piece of a palm from Palm Sunday. Unable to pass through his system, it had perforated his bowel. The damage was too extensive to fix. The vet later told us about many other items he had removed throughout his experience: Q-tips, cotton balls, coins, twist ties, string, buttons, Easter grass, Christmas tree icicles, etc. Abby, please warn your readers to pick up anything that’s small enough for a pet Dear Heloise: I read a hint about including addresses on FLOWERS SENT FOR FUNERALS. Another hint is to be sure to include your full name and address on sympathy cards that are taken to the funeral or visitation. One more hint regarding memorials: If you wish to send a donation to a specific charity that the family has not designated, please mail the check directly to your chosen charity and inform the family so they can thank you directly and your donation will get to the proper charity. When my mother passed away, we had several people send checks to us that were made out to a charity of their

DEAR SLEEPLESS: Some dreams have a “meaning” — others do not. Your dream may be an attempt by your subconscious to work through something in your life that you haven’t been able to resolve consciously, which is why the dream is recurring. However, it’s important that you understand that dreams usually aren’t literal. An example would be a person who dreams he or she is naked in a public place. It could be caused by fear of “exposure” of some secret, or wish fulfillment having completed a successful diet and exercise program. Because the dream is causing sleeplessness and anxiety, it may help to discuss it with a psychologist. Just talking about it may help the problem go away.
Dear Heloise: Here are some uses for the larger “tub”-style butter/margarine lids: * As you sew and quilt, they make good circle patterns. * Cut in half to make scrapers for surfaces you do not want to scratch. * Use as disposable cutting boards for small amounts of food.

Dear Heloise: Perhaps you should add this to the microfiber hints: DO NOT use fabric softener in the rinse cycle or dryer sheets in the dryer when drying microfiber cloths. This ruins their effectiveness, and they will not dry things off the way they should. I wash a load with them in it, then spin them around in the dryer for about 10 minutes. I take them out of the dryer and hang them up, at the same time adding dryer sheets to the remaining items in the dryer. P.A. Almquist in Marshall, Texas

Dear Heloise: I saw the letter where the woman was complaining about bleach spots on her laundry, and the same thing happened to us. We found that using the machine’s bleach dispenser created the problem. Bleach apparently was getting stuck somewhere, only to drip onto the next load. Once we stopped using it, the problem thankfully stopped. Roberta, via e-mail
Dear Heloise: I have a huge suggestion for the manufacturers of coupons. It appears that most coupons cannot be used by the consumer of a food product unless he or she buys two or more. Most households buy groceries once a week because they cannot afford to buy more than one of each item. It appears to be an act of discrimination against the poor and lowincome, and it needs to be changed. Joan in Springfield, Ohio Joan, I understand your complaint about having to buy two. However, I don’t think it’s intended as discrimination. What do my readers think? Manufacturers, we’d be happy to share your side. Heloise

Analysis: Joblessness down, some still downbeat WASHINGTON (AP) — Why so glum? Unemployment is dropping, but the reaction from both the left and right ends of the political spectrum is surprisingly unenthusiastic. Conservatives fear the improvement will weaken their argument that the way to bring back jobs is less regulation and more fiscal discipline. Liberals worry that better job numbers will create momentum for spending cuts that will cause the fragile recovery to falter The divided reaction illustrates the ideological forces pulling at President Barack Obama as he tries to gain economic and political traction out of the positive jobs report. “Overall, it’s a very solid jobs
report,” said Austan Goolsbee, the chairman of Obama’s Council of Economic Advisers. “And overall there’s been increasing optimism that despite having a long way to go, we’re clearly headed in the right direction and we’re putting some miles behind us and trying to get back to a good situation.” Indeed, a number of economic markers are moving in positive directions. The U.S. economy has been growing for 18 months. Retail sales are picking up. A Federal Reserve survey released this week showed factory activity rising in all Fed districts except St. Louis. Obama, himself, made the point Friday, trumpeting the unemployment numbers during a visit to a Miami high school.
LOCAL BIZ NEWS
“That’s the 12th straight month of private sector job growth,” he said. “So our economy has now added 1.5 million private sector jobs over the last year. And that’s progress.” Still, unemployment is usually the last economic signpost to improve after a recession, and the rate remains high at 8.9 percent. The number of unemployed is 13.7 million, almost double since before the recession. And that’s enough to provoke some downbeat assessments. “We have yet to see the leadership we need coming out of the White House to restore sustainable economic growth,” declared Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus. Economist Heidi Shierholz, at the liberal Economic Policy Insti-
tute, weighed in with this: “Some of February’s growth is simply a positive rebound effect after bad weather last month, and the trend is modest.” Since the November elections that placed Republicans in control of the House and weakened the Democrats’ hold on the Senate, Republicans and conservatives have argued that the path to jobs is through deregulation of industries, fiscal restraint and low taxes. Obama has embraced some of the advice, reaching out to business with a pledge to reconsider some gover nment rules and compromising with Republicans by dropping, for now, his demand that the wealthy pay higher taxes.

Lee Adams wins outstanding client of the year
The Eastern New Mexico University-Roswell Small Business Development Center has named All American Cleaners its outstanding client of the year. Owner Lee Adams was honored in a special ceremony at the State Capitol in February. Lee Adams had been looking for an opportunity to own his own business, but not just any business. He was looking for the right fit for him and his family. In 2008, the ENMU-Roswell SBDC assisted him in preparing business plans, loan proposals and financial projections for different projects he had in mind to see which would be most profitable. This information helped him come to a conclusion, and he decided on purchasing an existing dry cleaning business in Roswell. He changed its name to All American Cleaners. After taking the reins of the business, Adams added two locations in Artesia. He also took the innovative step of adding a pickup and delivery service, and this has added to his customer base. Adams also launched a series of unique and fun radio spots with the theme, “The alien landing in ’47 HAD to have something to do with All American's great service.” The campaign has been enjoyable and suc-

Feds plan spill analysis for Arctic offshore leases
ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — Federal officials will study how a “very large oil spill” would af fect the ocean off Alaska’s northwest coast as part of a court-ordered environmental review for a 2008 offshore petroleum lease sale that garnered billions of dollars for federal coffers. The decision by the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management, Regulation and Enforcement could further delay company drilling plans and potentially affects thousands of jobs, future energy security and the economic stimulus that would result from offshore development, said Curtis Smith, a spokesman for Shell Oil, the major lease holder in the Chukchi Sea. The Chukchi lease sale in February 2008 brought in nearly $2.7 billion, including $2.1 billion from a subsidiary of Shell. No exploratory wells have been drilled. Drilling has been held up by court challenges and a lack of permits, frustrating company officials and the state of Alaska, whose economic future depends on finding additional sources of oil for the trans-Alaska pipeline. But U.S. District Court Judge Ralph Beistline of Anchorage in July ruled that the federal government failed to follow environmental law before it sold the leases in the Chukchi, which is covered much of the year by ice and is home to polar bears, walrus, ice seals and endangered whales. Beistline ordered the Interior Department to analyze the environmental impact of natural gas development and deter mine whether environmental infor mation it acknowledged was missing was essential for the sale to go forward. In a court filing in Anchorage, a bureau official said it would be appropriate for the federal agency to update its spill risk assessment in the Chukchi Sea as part of its environmental review. Agency officials said the analysis will be completed by late May, followed by a 45-day public comment period. It expects a final revised environmental review by October. Shell last month announced it would drop
plans for this year to drill in the Beaufort Sea of f Alaska’s north coast and concentrate on obtaining permits for the 2012 season. The company said the final driver in the decision was its failure to be issued an air permit by the Environmental Protection Agency. The agency’s review board granted an appeal because of limited agency analysis regarding the effect of emissions from drilling ships and support vessels. The bureau’s decision presents additional challenges and Smith said the company is investigating the potential effects on its 2012 plans. “We already took into account worst case discharge when we built a world class Arctic oil spill response fleet for Alaska, so it’s hard to imagine raising the bar even higher than we already have in that arena,” Smith said. The company is concer ned that the new extended schedule for the spill analysis is inconsistent with the court’s narrow ruling, he said “What is clear, is that the mounting examples of regulatory delay and uncertainty place ever increasing pressure on the possibility of developing the Alaskan OCS,” he said. Environmental groups had mixed reaction to the agency announcement. Leah Donahey of the Alaska Wilderness League, a plaintiff in the lawsuit, said the group is glad that the bureau is applying lessons learned from the Deepwater Horizon disaster to the Arctic Ocean. She said a spill in Norway shows that the Arctic has its own challenges. “There is no known way to clean up a spill in the Arctic’s icy, extreme conditions,” she said. Attorney Mike LeVine of Oceana called spill analysis a good first step but does not address the court’s concern that the agency failed to outline the basic environmental information missing from its first review.
Democrats unveil counteroffer easing GOP cuts
Vice President Joe Biden
WASHINGTON (AP) — Senate Democrats unveiled a detailed counterof fer Friday seeking to undo tens of billions of dollars in cuts Republicans would make to education, housing and other domestic programs. With the two parties maneuvering for advantage in their budget clash, the Democratic plan conforms to President Barack Obama’s opening gambit to cut another $6.5 billion from domestic agencies. But neither it nor the $61 billion in cuts passed by House Republicans is expected to survive test votes
next week in the Senate. Both sides view the votes as necessary preludes to negotiations on narrowing the $50 billion gap between cuts the White House and Republican want. Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid called the GOP reductions “mean-spirited.” Facing a federal deficit of $1.6 trillion, the White House and Congress have struggled to produce a long-overdue plan for the ongoing budget year. House Republican leaders are under pressure from tea partiers in their ranks for significant spending cuts, putting
them at odds with Democrats who control the Senate. The Democratic plan unveiled by Reid, D-Nev., completely restores money the House GOP cuts from education, health and job training programs. It provides a modest increase for homeland security rather than the 2 percent cut proposed by Republicans. And it softens cuts to housing subsidies and community development grants, while restoring about $5 billion in foreign aid, including help for allies in the war on terror like Afghanistan and Pakistan.
But it’s not likely to please the Defense Department. The Pentagon has already complained that the slightly more generous House measure would leave it without enough money to meet vital military requirements. Reid promises votes next week on both plans but said he doesn’t expect either to win the 60 votes needed to pass. “Our plan recognizes that we’re not in a competition to determine who can cut the most, without regard for the consequences,” Reid said.

Sean Penn thanks Venezuela’s Chavez for Haiti aid CARACAS, Venezuela (AP) — Sean Penn thanked Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez on Saturday for supporting the actor’s relief organization in Haiti, saying the aid has helped its humanitarian work in distributing medicines. Chavez met with Penn at the presidential palace and praised the actor’s efforts with his J/P Haitian Relief Organization, which was founded in response to the catastrophic 2010 earthquake in Haiti. Neither provided details about how much financial assistance Venezuela has provided to the group. The Oscar-winning actor noted that in addition to Venezuela’s financial help, his organization also receives funding from the U.S. military. Penn said that shows the U.S. and Venezuela can find common ground on some issues in spite of their other differences and limited diplomatic contacts. The U.S. and Venezuela have been without ambassadors since December, when Chavez formally rejected the White House’s nominee for envoy in a diplomatic dispute. The U.S. government revoked the visa of Venezuelan Ambassador Bernardo Alvarez in response. Penn has met four times with Chavez in recent years. Chavez has praised the actor for his critical stance toward U.S. foreign policy. The leftist president said their meeting Saturday was productive in discussing “new plans and ideas.” “Sean is an activist of the struggles for the world’s oppressed peoples, and he’s leaving for Haiti right now,” Chavez said outside the presidential palace when they emerged from their meeting.
No agreement reached in pay TV battle
PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — A battle over fees between Dish Network and television station owner Lin TV Corp. caused 27 local stations to go dark for Dish subscribers Saturday. The two companies faced a deadline that came and went at 2 a.m. EST Saturday without a resolution. The stations were still unavailable Saturday afternoon. The companies traded accusations and gave conflicting versions of which pulled the plug. Dish Network Corp. said Lin pulled its channels down at midnight, “holding view-
ers in 17 markets ... hostage” to coerce Dish to submit to Lin’s demands for higher rates and that it refused to negotiate during the final hours. Lin said it has “worked tirelessly” to negotiate with Dish. Lin also said that Dish removed the signals over its objection. Both companies said negotiations were ongoing Saturday. Neither side has said how many subscribers are affected. Lin stations are affiliates of CBS, Fox, NBC, ABC and the CW in 17 cities including Indianapolis; Provi-
primitive times,” Seeger said. “The average American, I think, looks upon unions as a standard way of doing business. Just like you pay rent, you pay taxes, you also get paid a decent wage because of unions. It’s not because of the generosity of the employer.” Walker argues that taking away collective bargaining rights, along with forcing public workers to pay more for benefits, is needed to help Wisconsin balance a $3.6 billion budget shortfall. He says private workers have been making concessions for years in the recession so it’s only fair for public workers to take a cut as well. Unions have agreed to the benefit concessions as long as they retain their bargaining rights. A Pew Research Center poll released Monday found 42 percent of adults surveyed nationwide sided with the unions and 31 percent sided with Walker. A New York T imes-CBS poll this week indicated that Americans oppose efforts to weaken the collective bargaining rights of public employee unions by nearly a 2-1 margin. Seeger, who has sung at thousands of rallies including one this week at a union hall near his home, said he is heartened by the number of people protesting in Madison. “It shows me that Americans are still Americans,” he said. “You don’t become an American by saluting at the right time or singing the national anthem at the right time. You become an American by using the rights which the Constitution gave us.”
‘Drugstore Cowboy’ author sentenced in robbery
SEATTLE (AP) — The author of “Drugstore Cowboy,” a crime saga that led to a Hollywood movie, has been sentenced to nearly 16 years in prison for holding up a pharmacy in a Seattle suburb. The Seattle T imes reports that 74-year-old James Fogle was sentenced Friday in King Superior Court for last May’s Redmond robbery. The ailing man was brought to court in a wheelchair, breathing with the aid of an oxygen tank.

Folk music legend Seeger praises Wis. protesters
MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Folk music legend Pete Seeger, who has been singing about union rights since the 1940s, told The Associated Press on Friday he’s pulling for the demonstrators in Wisconsin who want to stop a bill taking away collective bargaining rights from public workers. “Maybe the Republican governor, he’s done us a favor by bringing the problem to national attention,” the 91-year-old Seeger said in a telephone interview from his New York home. “It shows the whole country how much we need unions. We may end up thanking him.” Gov. Scott Walker’s proposal would remove the right of public workers to collectively bargain, except over salary increases no larger than the rate of inflation. Most police and firefighters are exempt. The bill is stalled in the Legislature after 14 Senate Democrats fled the state to prevent a vote. Tens of thousands of people have marched in protest over the bill, including at two rallies that attracted around 70,000 people each. A song Seeger recorded with The Weavers, “Solidarity Forever,” has been a standard among the Madison protesters for weeks. A group of about 50 protesters sang it as they left the Capitol on Thursday night following more than a two-week occupation. Seeger, who’s been singing since the Great Depression and released a record in 1942 titled “Talking Union,” said he was following the issue in Wisconsin. “Without collective bargaining rights we’d be right back to

Fogle was armed with a BB gun, while his co-defendant, Shannon Benn, had a handgun. Benn pleaded guilty in September. Fogle has spent much of his adult life in prison, which is where he wrote “Drugstore Cowboy.” Filmmaker Gus Van Sant turned the novel into the acclaimed 1989 film starring Matt Dillon. The work was loosely based on Fogle’s life robbing pharmacies to feed his addictions.

In October, a breakdown in negotiations between Cablevision Systems Corp. and News Corp.’s Fox network left 3 million Cablevision subscribers in the New York area without Fox programming for 15 days — including through two World Series games — after the broadcaster pulled its signal.
